LS.E. Aspirants
Present Plans
the L.S.E. revealed their platforms to the members of the
A.M.S. last Friday noon in the Auditorium. The seven candidates are:
Charles T. Armstrong, E. A. Clarke,
St. John Madeley, John McLennan,
Sidney Semple, Chris J. Taylor and
William H. L. Whimster.
Jack McLennan emphasized no
definite platform, but believed his ex-
Serience would in some measure fit
im for the office. He has had a three-
year business training outside the
University. Bill Cameron supported
McLennan, and pointed out the letter's experience as a member of the
Playersf Club for two years.
Sidney Semple stated his policy
would be not only to develop the or-
tanizations under the control of the
.S.E. but also to awaken interest in
public speaking. He has definite plans
for the revival of a new interest in
this field, he said. Maurice DesBrisay
emphasized Semple's interest in activities on the Campus. He was President of the Sophomore class last year
and the Chairman of the Arts '32
Valedictory Gift Committee. He also
instituted the Arts '32 Oratorical Contest.
Candidate Favors  Glee  Club
William Whimster presented a record of his activities while he has attended the University for the last two
years. He has been a member of the
Players' Club and Debating Union
during these years and has had contact with the Musical Society.
Charles Armstrong, past president
of the A.M.S. at Victoria College,
stated that if he were elected some
means would be devised to arouse the
Debating Union. He also favored a
Glee Club.
"It has been my luck to be the fifth
candidate to speak," said Chris Taylor, "and all my platform is included
in those of the preceding speakers."
In speaking for Taylor, J. Plant told
the audience that Taylor, an active
member of the Players' Club, was undoubtedly the right man for President
of the L.S.E. "And remember," he
said in conclusion, "You are not voting for me, you are voting for Chris
Book  Exchange  Proposed
St. John Madeley stated that if he
were elected he would not only attempt to remove any friction between
the Players' Club and the Musical Society but he would also inaugurate a
new system of inter-class debating.
He believed that a second-hand book
exchange would help students at the
first of the year.
E. A. Clarke, supported by Archie
Dick, was the last candidate to speak,
and said that the planks in his platform had been stated by the other candidates. Dick stated that Clarke was
the one who could fill the position of
President of L.S.E. to the satisfaction
of everyone. Ted Clarke is a member
of the Players' Club.
Highlights Of The Inter-Class Track Meet
Varsity Editors
Return To Work
In the Fall of 1880 the first issue
of the Varsity appeared as a weekly
edition, and since then it has gradually developed until now it is issued
on a daily basis, five times a week.
This year, therefore, marks the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the Varsity and in order to
commemorate this event, the Joint
Executive has decided to resume publication of the Varsity and to co-operate with the members of the regular
Varsity staff in producing a sixteen
or twenty page issue. It will be almost entirely historical in nature and
will contain many interesting features
such as contributions by former graduates who have attained Dominion
wide reputation, photos of former
scenes around the University Campus
and resumes of the past fifty years
in the various activities of the University such as sports, etcetera.
Extra copies of this issue may be
had at a cost of ten cents.

Notable Patrons
Give Recital
To  Club
Two of the Players' Club's most
distinguished patrons paid the cast
and associates of 'The Young Idea"
a surprise visit on "closing night."
Arriving in Vancouver on the morning of the 14th, Miss Edith Wynn
Matthison and her husband, Charles
Rann Kennedy, saw the performance
on Saturday night, and afterwards
adjourned to "Woodholme," where Mr.
and Mrs. F. G. C. Wood were hosts
to the protagonists of youthful ideas.
Miss Matthison is well-known in the
world of the drama, having played
opposite Sir Henry Irving and Sir H.
Beerbohm Tree. She entertained the
company with several recitations, and
those who heard her rendering of
Shakespeare's "When in disgrace with
fortune," found their appreciation of
the sonnet immensely increased.
Mr. Kennedy amused the company
with anecdotes and reminiscences of
English stage celebrites.
This is the second performance of
the Players' Club to be attended by
Miss Matthison and Mr. Kennedy.
They were here in 1924, when they
witnessed the successful comedy, "The
World and his Wife," continuing an
association with the club which has
been valued by all.

M.U.S. Speakers
Address Voters
The candidates for the position of
President of the Men's Undergrad
Society, Ken Beckett, Jack Thomson,
and Bob Wallace, presented their platforms to a small audience in App.
Science 100 at noon Monday.
Beckett divided his platform into
three divisions, social functions, discipline in the university, and voting
on Council. He stated that he agreed
with the report of the committee working on the program for social functions, and thought that any functions
that would bring the various faculties
into closer conjunction would be for
the good of the University. In his
opinion, fines are not the best way to
maintain discipline on the campus.
Another plank in his platform was
that surplus from class fees should be
saved for future use by the class, and
should not be turned over to the Alma
Mater Society. His supporters stated
that he has had much executive experience.
Thomson said that as Treasurer of
the Alma Mater Society he has come
in touch with all branches of student
activity, and although he did not believe in making promises that he
might not be able to keep, yet if he
were elected he would do all in his
power to fill the position to the best
of his ability. His supporters stated
that he had held various executive positions before coming to Varsity, and
as Treasurer of the Artsmen's Undergrad and the Alma Mater Society
this vear he has gained an insight into all student affairs.
Bob Wallace based his platform on
stating that he would attempt to stir
up enthusiasm at University games
and functions. He suggested a Pep
Band and season's tickets to all games.
He also said that he would try to get
official sanction for the Victoria invasion in future years. His supporters
remarked that he is essentially a live-
wire, and while attending Victoria
College was Editor of the Annual, and
President of the Literary Society. At
Varsity he has been a member of the
Letters' Club and the Mathematics
Club, and has taken a keen interest
in athletics on the campus.

Comedy Termed
Good Vehicle
By Critic
Now that the Players' Club presentation has come and gone it is time
for the critic to unsheath his pen and
write concerning the merits and the
demerits of the production. Firstly
he will delve into the play and examine it closely.
The sparkling lines and excellently
contrived situations of Noel Coward's
"The Young Idea" provided the Club
with a vehicle that was easily within
its bounds to produce in first class
professional style. With the exception
of a few minor details there was
hardly a trace of amateurishness
throughout. The dialogue so ably written by Coward was well handled, while
the constantly recurring comic scenes
had the last possible laugh "squeezed
Marjorie Ellis and Alfred Evans
easily took the honors for the evening
in the presentations of the characters
of Gerda and Sholto. These two kept
the audience in a continual state of
laughter by their precocious antics.
Evans, who appeared in "Polly With
a Past" and "Rollo's Wild Oat," made
» welcome return to the Players' Club
stage. His polished acting and clever
byplay added greatly to the smoothness of his role. He made all that was
possible of both his lines and his actions to such an extent that the house
applauded him in the middle of the
Marjorie Ellis, with her alert way
of hood-winking unsuspecting parents
and very very English people, won
fresh laurels for her histrionic career.
She made her part equal to any outstanding performance of the Club in
the four years that the writer has
been viewing the work of the University players.
Bill Cameron, as George Brent, the
father of the two irresistible youngsters, gave his role the much needed
maturity that is often lacking in Players' Club presentations. His voice
suited the character admirably. At
times he grimaced in such a manner
that his moustache appeared in the
wrong position. Apart from this one
defect in his characterization his performance was surprisingly well done
for a newcomer to the boards.
Ann Ferguson in the part of "Prith-
illa" was the best of the minor roles.
Her   characterization   indicated   that
she had lost none of the old touch in

Co-Ed Candidates
Outline Policies
As candidates for the office of
President of the Women's undergraduate Society Jean Cameron and Dorothy Myers outlined their platforms
Monday noon in Arts 100.
Jean Cameron declared herself in
favour of the candle ceremony for
initiation being worked into a real
tradition. The Big Sister Movement
she felt should be sustained throughout the year, as freshettes often need
advice in the second term. She hopes
to see the Women's Union Building
near completion, thus "fulfilling a long
cherished ideal." A "get-together"
banquet at the close of the year would
be a fitting close to the Women's activity. She then declared she would
give earnest consideration to her vote
on Council.
Dorothy Myers favoured the serious initiation of Freshettes, and a
continuation of the Big Sister Movement. She hoped to carry on the out-
of-town teas as part of the women's
activities. She felt that informal suppers should be held throughout the
year to get all the girls acquainted.
She hoped to make a definite start
next year on the Women's Union
Building. Her vote on Council would
be used only after consideration.
The first speaker in support of Jean
Cameron was Hilda Bone, who outlined the candidate's past experience.
As vice-president of the Women's Undergrad. last year and of her class
in its Sophomore year, Jean Cameron
gained considerable knowledge of executive work. She also won the first
Oratorical Contest, and proved herself a good sport when she played on
the Grass Hockey team for two years.
The second supporter for Jean Cameron, Mary Fallis, pointed out that
students can best obtain student-government by electing a representative
vvho could best interpret their feeling.
By her wide experience in various activities on the campus, the speaker
declared that Jean Cameron could
most ably do this.
Helen Lowe, as the first supporter
for Dorothy Myers, appealed especially to the Freshettes. She stressed
the importance and honour of the position. As secretary of Sophomore
year and secretary of the W.U.S. last
year, Miss Myers came in contact with
all branches of the work. Rhuna Os-
bourne endorsed her remarks, and
added that Miss Myers' conscientious
work made her worthy of the office.

Pre-election Preamble
An Effort to Stir Criticism
The Editor, the "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:— .    *   ,
I sympathise with "A. Fabian" in
his efforts to provoke discussion about
this country's attitude towards Russia.
Perhaps this letter from "The Spectator" of February 21, will stimulate
Yours sincerely,
Students go to the polls today to choose the personnel of next
year's Council. After a week of ballyhoo meetings and other
forms of pre-election propaganda the masses should be able to
climb the long stairs to the local two by four Olympus with their
minds made up as to exactly which spot should be marked with
the fatal X.
It may seem a little farcical for the "Ubyssey" to remind its
readers of the gravity of the occasion, to recite the old rigamarole
about the blessings and privileges of student self-government and
the immense responsibility which will be entrusted to the new
executive. Student self-government has been revealed in all its
futility during the past month.
Yet with a president pledged to fight for the old ideal of student control of student affairs it is remotely possible that some
progress will be made next year.
Personal friendships and antipathies should have no part in
deciding the elections. The new executive should be selected because of its ability to discharge its duties and its willingness to
support the cause of the students against outside interference.
Woodman, Spare That Tree!
Unrivalled opportunities for improving the approach to the
University have been lost with the cutting down of the trees in
the endowment area. We understand that this action was taken
on the complaint of several residents in this district that the
trees obstructed their view of the gulf, also that the wild growth
was a harbor for caterpillars. Although the destruction of the
trees does undoubtedly remove the cause of both these complaints,
yet the beauty of the grounds has been unquestionably destroyed
by the action.
The endowment area is as yet sparsely populated, especially
close to the main boulevard and the broad, bare expanse, adorned
by innumerable stumps, presents an ugly approach to the University. Yet authorities argue that there will be an increase in the
sale of property now that the growth is removed, thus netting
increased revenues from these lands for the University itself.
This may or may not be true—time will tell; but we know for
fact that there are several residents in this government area who
regret the destruction of the trees around their homes. Such
nature lovers argue that in the development of any residential
section it is not necessary to destroy the surrounding trees and
shrubs—valuable things which require years of time to produce.
More than ever today there is a growing interest in the care
and preservation of forest and wild places in general, and a coming
appreciation of the half wild parks and public gardens of towns,
and because ef this we feel that little financial loss would have been
incurred if the trees had been allowed to stand.
In the development of such a tract as that within the University gates it would seem not only an artistic advantage but an
economic benefit to preserve as much as possible of the natural
stretch of woodland.
(To the Editor of the 'Spectator').
Sir:—Might I be permitted to put before
your readers a neglected point of view on this
widely-discussed question? The difference between what is going on in Russia and the conditions In England to-day is that whatever occurs In the U.S.S.R. is done by the will of the
Soviet and is an incident in their plan of industrialisation, whereas the appalling conditions prevailing In England which are sapping
the life of the country and causing untold
suffering and embltterment have not been
brought about consciously by any of our Governments nor are they due entirely to world
conditions but also to the decline of that spirit
of courage and enterprise which was once the
proud boast of Great Britain.
Many of our leading newspapers appear to
be more concerned about happenings In Russia than conditions in this country. Twelve
months ago we were urged by a prominent portion of the press to protest vigorously against
the religious oppression of the Russians, and
the feelings of our clergy and other Christian
people were worked up to a high pitch of Indignation. This made no appreciable difference
to the policy of the Soviet as regards their
churches, and, similarly, nothing we ean say
or do will affect the conditions In the timber
camps; so the only practical result of our Interference In these matten Is to further engender a spirit of hatred between the Russians
and ourselves and to injure trade relations with
Russia to our own great loss and to the advantage of other countries.
We should also think of the effect It Is
bound to have on those young Britishers and
Russians who have just left school and are beginning to read newspapers; for it to be constantly suggested to them at the start of their
careers that each is the enemy of the other,
the Soviet intriguing against us In every part
of our Empire, and Great Britain bent on a
Sollcy of getting rid of a united formidable
tussla: even our best friends in Russia are
convinced that the British as a nation are determined to break the power of the Soviet by
every possible means. Are we not sowing the
seeds of another devastating war In the not
very distant future? Is there no way by which
a modernised unified Russia can be made compatible with a contented and prosperous British
Empire? After all the Russians are only exhibiting the same determination to overcome
obstacles that our forefathers did when they
opened up the world's commerce and trade a
century ago. These ploneen suffered untold
hardships and many were sacrificed, but England went steadily on. Ten years from now
will show what modern England Is capable of,
and whether the Soviet or ourselves will be the
more successful in bringing about better and
happier living conditions for their people as a
whole.   ■
In any event it Is surely clear that we
should be careful not to accept uncritically
everything adverse which we read about Russia. It was a little disturbing a year ago to
discover that the religious atrocities which
were being used in certain sections of our
press to stimulate feeling were for the most
part not recent atrocities, but something which
occurred Immediately following upon the revolution when the country was in a state of
chaos. A Russlnn Bishop living In London
udmitted to my personal knowledge that he had
made use of such out-of-date stories,

A Pat for the Back Page
Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:—
I would like to express my appreciation ot
the Sports Page of the "Ubyssey." This is the
first year in which the policy of devoting a
special page to sports has been Instituted, and
there is no doubt that it has met with success.
The treatment of sports events is original,
breezy and concise, and Is very refreshing In
Its Informality. The editorial comments on
university sports are timely and succeed in
giving the average student an excellent Idea
of what Is going on In all branches of athletics.
The Sports Page as a new institution has
its faults, of course. For instance, accuracy is
sometimes sacrificed for effect, and some of
the references, especially in the headlines, are
vague to the average reader. These defects will
certainly disappear in the course of time.
Only a few initiates realize the tremendous
amount of work involved In producing a com-
Slete sports page twice a week. The sports staff
as to be thoroughly organised, to "cover"
every game, to write the reports In a fresh
style, to determine the "news value" of the
different stories, and to write novel and appropriate "heads." In addition, the Sports Editor
must have a thorough knowledge of all sports
activities and the ability to criticise and comment.
It is always very easy to And fault with
something new, but much harder to suggest
something better. The Sports Page has got
off to a flyfctg start this year, and should be
warmly congratulated on Its achievement.
Does Charity Begin at
Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sirs—
Now that the students have succeeded In
raising a large percentage of the 920,000 Stadium objective, I think that they are entitled
to some Idea of how the money Is being spent.
I think that I am right in saying that very
few of the students know whether the work is
In charge of a contractor, or whether It is being done by day labor under a paid foreman.
We all know that one of the objects of building
the Stadium at the present time, is to provide
work for the unemployed. As charity Is supposed to begin at home, will there be any
chance of our own students finding employment on the project during the five months'
vacation period?
There is a very large group of students at
this University whose education depends entirely on their summer earnings, and from the
present outlook there will be many students
financially unable to return here next fall.
I know that several students would jump
at the chance of employment on their own
project and I am sure that for their four dollars a day they would support a pick and
shovel just as enthusiastically and artistically
as the older members of the profession.
Yours sincerely,

by far the best in the long run—and

giving atmosphere parts. The rest of
the cast in the minor roles gave good
accounts of themselves.
Nancy Symes, Cicely, Brent's second
wife, was weak in her acting at the
beginning of the play, but strengthened her part in the second act. There
was a trace of amateurishness in the
way she stamped her foot and jiggled
her arm in the first scene. Chris Taylor, as Roddy, the lover of Cicely, was
too immature for the part. His actions smacked more of a youngster of
eighteen than of a sophisticated Englishman of twenty-five.
Dorothy McKelvie, although portraying the role of Brent's first spouse
with appropriate gestures and words,
also appeared a trifle too young. Probably this was the fault of the makeup which failed to give adequate representation of her age.
St. John Madeley, appearing with
the name of Huddle, epitomized all
that a butler of an English country
home unrelieved by the lighter side of
life should be.
Much credit is due to Prof. F. G. C,
Wood who spent his time and invaluable experience in coaching the students. The success of the production is
largely due to his efforts. The committees too are to be commended for
the excellence of the scenery and the
Fact Before Effect
Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sin-
Re your editorial of March 10, entitled:
"Seen But Not Heard." Once again a good
editorial has been ruined by "lack of tact" In
this case it would be truer to say "lack of
fact." The last paragraph of the editorial In
what sounds like a very strained attempt to
creute a fine effect, disregards facts, especially
In the following sentence "At present, women
students limit themselves to two or three minor brr.nches of sports, certain clubs and the
one unci only Co-ed Ball" Just why the Co-ed
should be dragged in at this point I am not
clear but perhaps the writer was. However
it is the previous part of the sentence which
lacks fact, may I remind you that we have here
a championship women's basketball team, and
to the best of my knowledge basketball is not
a minor sport, neither is swimming and as the
Co-eds showed at the last meet they are "not
so slow"  in this sport.
As for clubs, the majority are open to members of either sex and of those which are not
there are about an equal number for both
men and women.
I maintain that the Co-eds play an equally
prominent and effective part In all extra-curricular activities, Including the "Ubyssey," and
as for "seen but not heard," what of those
who took the feminine leads in the recent productions of the Musical and Players' Clubs?
"Heard But Not Seen"
La Canadienne
The final meeting of the Classics
Club for the icrm will be held Wednesday evening at the home of Prof.
Robertson, Westbrook Crescent. A
paper by Margaret Rathie will be followed by the election of officers for
the coming year. All those from the
second year who intend to join the
club are requested to attend.
The last regular meeting of "La
Canadienne" for this term will be held
on Tuesday evening, March 17, at 8
p.m., at the home of Prof. Delavault,
4536 West 13th Avenue. New members, whose names are given below
are especially asked to attend: Grace
M. Parkinson, Kathleen Johnston,
Eleanor Killam, Frances Tremayne,
Betty Hammond, Anna C. Fulton,
Marion Banbury, Verda Benedict,
Kathleen Greenwood, Edith Messer-
Bill Lawson: If I sued you
for dismissing me from class,
what would be your case?
Mr. Angus: I'd say it was justification.
W. A. A. Candidates
Address Voters
(Continued from page 1)
Jean Telford, who had charge of
the meeting, then turned the chair
over to Betty Buckland. Isabel McArthur and Irene Ramage gave their
platforms as candidates for the presidency of the W.A.A.
Isabel MacArthur approved greater
co-operation among the students and
said she hoped to get more money for
the support of women's athletics, and
to make track a major sport. She
pointed out the value of a season's
ticket to all games thus making the
students support the teams.
Irene Ramage sanctioned the work
of the Women's Big Block Club which
encouraged women in their athletic
activity. She favoured the development of Track as the Inter-collegiate
Meet would be here next year. The
candidate further added, "As a member of Council, I will do my best to
interpret the wishes of the members
of the Association and will co-operate
with the other councillors to the best
of my ability."
In support of Isabel MacArthur,
Nancy Carter pointed out that the
former's experience as captain of the
Grass Hockey team, on the valedictory committee of Arts '32, and as
athletic rep. for her class this year
qualified her for this position. Her
high standard in her academic work
would, the speaker felt, give her time
to devote to the work of the Society.
As a supporter for Irene Ramage,
Thelma Mahon declared that the candidate's work in the Badminton Club
(winner of singles championship last
year), and her work on the Women's
Athletic Executive for the last two
years qualified her for the position.
The supporter felt that the amount
of responsibility given to Irene Ramage demonstrated her great ability
and dependability.

Bedtime Stories
As Told To
frisky Freshmen
By Tom Thumb
The evenings are now beginning to
lengthen and fearless Freshmen and
even a few frisky footballers are begging their mummies and daddies to let
them stay up a little longer and absorb a little more of the soluble sunshine.
This, boys and girls, as you all
know, means a curtailment of their
bed-time narrative. What should they
do? Drop their games and run off to
bed or should they run off to their
games and drop their bed?
I have discovered an idea that
would be of help to anyone who is in
such a predicament. Why not learn
a type and just think of it as you drop
off to sleep.   Here's a nice short one.
O.U.A.T. (once upon a time) there
were two little mice. Their names
were Mehitabel the Mischief-Maker,
and Daphne the Deficient. They attended lectures quite regularly until
one day Daphne got fed up with life
in general and everything else in particular and went to sleep in class.
Fido the Footpad was lecturing on
"Rhodesian Rodents" and was discussing the "squint-eyed squirrel" when
he said, "And now class, what place
can we give to the squint-eyed squirrel of the Sudan?"
Poor little Daphne woke up at this
moment and as she picked up her
books she answered, "Please, sir, he
can have mine.   I'm going to go."

And then there is the one about the
Irish philosopher who exclaimed: "By

Rufut it Answered
Editor, the "Ubyssey."
Dear Sirs-
May I tender my deepest apologies
to Mr. Rufus W. McGoofus for my
crass nescience in allowing Shrdlu
Etoin to be so insulted as to have his
illustrious name so crudely misspelled
in last Tuesday's issue of the
"Ubyssey." It was not a typographical
error. It was the result of an ill-
trained memory during my early
years at a government-controlled educational institution.
Whit People Are Saying:
Marion Mae: The Pub Office
is like a harem gone wrong.
Dr. Ashton: I too have my
views on marriage.
Mr. Black: Slang is good for
our souls.
Dr. Ashton: If I came in In
the morning dressed up as the
Prince of Wales, I wouldn't fool
Dr. Evans: Examinations are
not tests of memory; if they
were no professor would have
passed an examination.
Doc Sedgewick: Shakespeare
loved a drunken party—on the
stage at least.
Jean Henderson (to her walking dictionary): What is love?
Harold Todd: I'd sooner have
a good saddle horse than a wife.
Doc Sedgewick: Get outside
the English honour students and
you might get a little intelligence.

The Horse was grey
Into the parking
field he stray.
The presence of strange monsters
on the campus seems to be developing
into a veritable epidemic. Last Tuesday the sacred privacy of the Library
was disturbed by the appearance of
an allegedly mad dog. Not to be outdone by the canine tribe, members of
the genus equus appointed one of their
number to inspect the space usually
reserved for the stationary cars. The
delegate arrived about nine o'clock
Monday morning and commenced to
terrorize timid co-eds who were in the
process of alighting from their vehicles. Roaming aimlessly around for
a while the quadruped discovered two
or three vacant positions along side of
typically collegiate wagons and Anally
took up its stand beside a flashy Packard roadster. At this juncture a representative of homo sapiens appeared
on the scene and suggested to the
equine intruder that a policy of "keep
moving" would be in order. The horse
however, decided that its inspection of
the parking space had not been thoroughly completed and proceeded to
finish the task despite the protests of
the man. A lively chase ensued and
the pair spread consternation up and
down the serried ranks of automobiles.
Eventually by means of remote control in the form of sticks and stones
the monster was persuaded to leave
the gas wagons in undisputed possession of the parking area.

College fife outside

And now a man of
master mind.
Can save his nal and
human kind.
By "Who"
Few students realize that in the
!>ast week or so one of the most puzz-
ing mysteries of the campus has been
solved by a student detective. For lack
of a more appropriate name I will
call him the Master Mind or the Pensive Plain-clothes Policeman or what
have you. He would like to make it
known that he is not a member of the
Discipline Committee and he does not
believe in the Honor System. The
Story is divided into two parts. The
first contains the beginning and the
second contains the end.
Part I.
"All is not as it should be," said the
Master Mind to me as he picked up a
burnt match from beneath a vacant
seat in the Auditorium, "someone has
been smoking within these sacred precincts at the Alma Mater meeting yesterday and it is up to me to And him.
He might give me a cigarette."
"Perhaps it was a pipe he was
smoking," I argued in an effort to dissuade him from a seemingly impossible task.
"Ah, no, Mr. Nusance, you will notice that the match is burnt only a
little at the top. In lighting a pipe
one not only has to burn the whole
match but one's Angers as well."
"Too true," I admitted and gave up
all hope of influencing my companion.
"First we will visit Council," decided the Master Mind, "and see who
was at the meeting yesterday." So
we ascended to the seats of the mighty
and asked for the desired information.
A little man, wearing a gown with a
Scotch accent, waited upon us. On the
list that he showed us there was a
total of some seven signatures.
"Yes," said the little Scotsman, "attendance is dropping at the A.M.S.
meetings. I think there must be a
few students who do not come to
"I know," I remarked, "there are
some like me who study at noon, and
anyway I couldn't think of missing an
English 2a lecture."
Somebody crawled under the table
and had a good laugh.
"Who is your friend?" the Master
Mind was asked by a big strong man
playing with a yo-yo.
"Oh, he's Adam Nusance," replied
the Thoughtful one, without stopping
to think.
"No doubt, he looks it," said little
Charlie who was building a Stadium
with some blocks.
"I resent that remark," I replied and
gave the half-built edifice a kick with
my foot. "Now, go home and tell your
"Out of order," exclaimed the little
Scotsman and continued, "we had seven present when the meeting was called but more than half of them left
soon after."
The Minder Mast glanced clown
the sheet and noticed these names:—
Fransisco Velveeta, Cleopatra (I hope
the reader will understand these are
not real names) Benito Mussolini, Fal-
staff, Oil Vance, Allday Soccer, and
Itchy McScratch.
"Ah, I know them all," said the Pensive Person. "We may get a cigarette
yet. But it will require much thought."
"That let's me out of it then," I
sighed with relief and left for the library to read Punch.
I met the Great Detective the next
day and he told me of his progress in
the case.
Immediately after I had left him
he had gone to the Pub. to enquire
after Allday Soccer. There was a
notice on the door "Out to Tea" but he
went in anyway and woke up a reporter who was writing a report. On asking for Allday Soccer he was told that
the gentleman ( ?) was up in the S.C.-
M. room playing poker.
"Has he been smoking lately?" asked the Sharp-witted Sherlock.
"No," was the reply, "he swallowed
a football during one of the games a
while ago and has been quite blown up
about it. He daren't breathe for fear
the football will burst."
Our hero made a hasty retreat. It
wasn't Allday after all. One person
eliminated. Only six possibilities now.
Mr. Detective next positioned himself behind a radiator in the Men's
Common Room.   After three hours of

Pretty Co-ed: "I want to buy a pair
of bloomers to wear around the gymnasium."
Salesman (absently): What size is
your gymnasium?"
What Does the Pub
Unto the Cub?
Ah, there's the Rub,
It is interesting for those who have
spent four or more years on the college paper to watch the progress of
reporters from the misdirected enthusiasm of the beginner to the recondite
adeptness ot the veteran journalist.
Every year brings a new crop of
energetic "cubs" who rush around the
campus filled with the importance of
an assignment, who listen attentively
to special lectures and who write
reams of copy on trivial events. They
are hurt and surprised when their efforts prove to have transgressed all
rules and customs of newspaper writing. They are bitterly disappointed
when their yards of effort appear as
a two inch story on an inside page.
Two years later the same enthusiasts appear as "hard-boiled" and insouciant editors. They take great delight in running a blue pencil through
the mistakes of the latest mob of neo-
phites. When on occasion they are obliged to report an event they commandeer a typewriter and hammer out a
story sans notes, sans worry and sans
scruples. They are on speaking terms
with most of the campus executives
and know exactly where to go for information on anything from S.C.M. to
soccer. They exhibit a lofty contempt
for the way in which all forms of student activity are carried out and invariably speak disrespectfully of the
Students' Council. They spend most
of their time loafing in the "Pub."
Such is the evolution of the campus journalist.
Continued from column three
waiting he overheard Cleopatra say
she hadn't smoked for a dog's age.
Two gone, only five more.
Later, when he was swimming
across the Lily Pond on his way to
the library he ran into Oil Vance.
"Top of the morning, Oil," he cried
cheerfully and tactfully added in a
whisper, "Do you smoke?"
"I'm sorry old chap," said Oil as he
drew a cigarette from his pocket and
lit it, "I ran out of smokes last week
and have never bothered to get any
Another suspect freed from the
bonds of suspicion. Who is guilty and
why not?
Meantime I had run two clues to
earth. After much cross-questioning
with Fransisco Velveeta she admitted
that she did not know what a cigarette
"Will it spread or slice?" she asked.
Another all gone.   Three left.
Later I met Mussolini putting up
a C.O.T.C. notice in the quad. "Hello
Benny," I said strategically, "what do
you think of the weather?"
He gave me the Ashy salute and
told me he didn't care about the
weather now that he had a storm-
tighter to light his cigarettes.
"How nice!" I remarked. "Goodbye." I was looking for someone who
used matches.
And then the Mister Mand and I
cornered Itchy McScratch in the Aggie Common Room and he told us he
could not remember. It was all a haze
to him. He hadn't done it. He would
swear to that. In fact to save himself
he said he would swear that he had
done it. We left him cowering in a
chair, with drops of sweat slipping
down his face and tears running round
his nose.
Only one remains now. It must be

Song." He told us at once that he
smoked a pipe and had never touched
a cigarette. And anyway, he added,
they always choked him.
In despair we left him. Had nobody smoked in the Auditorium? Had
nobody a cigarette? Had the match
been dropped by a janitor or the fire-
chief? Were we foiled? I should say

tugged at the tail of his black shirt
for about an hour he said he would
tell all.
"You're right," he confessed to the
Master Mind. My lighter never works
until I light it with a match!"
And then he took one of his cigarettes, cut it into three halves, gave
us each a portion and kept the largest

Battle of Defenses Ends 13-6 for Adanacs
There is a superstition that it is decidedly bad luck to present
a player with an award before an important game. Be that as it
may but the Vancouver and District League presented Arnold
Henderson with a trophy for being the most valuable player in the
League and Varsity basketball team lost to Adanacs 13-6 in the
third game of the playoff series at the Gym. Saturday night.
Whether jinxed or not the Varsity boys appeared to be mere
shadows of their former selves and|
scored only one field basket all evening. When that happens there is something wrong even if the opposing team
is the well known Adanacs.
After numerous fouls, Nicholson
finally converted one for the first
score of the evening and Campbell
brought the total up to two on another
a few minutes later. That was Varsity's moment of glory for after that
the champions held a lead for the rest
of the evening. It happened this way.
Wally Mayers, a former star of Varsity teams dropped two long shots in
from centre to make the score 4-2.
Doug. Fraser, captain of the visitors,
pushed in a spectacular one hand shot
to make the score J3-2. Varsity scored
a foul shot, the score was 6-3 and it
was half time. Just like that.
At the beginning of the second half
this same Fraser added two more
points to bring the Adanac total up
to 8. Mayers made it 9 with a foul on
Lee, After over 30 minutes of trying
Boh Osborne scored Varsity's only
field goal to make the score 9-5. Dick
Butler took the joy out of life for the
Varsity supporters a moment later
with a long one and the score was
11-6. Osborne made it 6 for Varsity
with a foul on Fraser but Mayers
evened things up by scoring on a
double foul while Tervo missed his.
The score was then 13-6, the gun was
fired, the game was over and whoa
was us.
The game produced the greatest defensive play of the series. Adanacs
scored three long shots and Varsity
scored none and that just about sums
up the game.
All in all, however, it was quite an
evening. Besides the honour bestowed
on the Varsity skipper, Pi Campbell
was announced as the high scorer of
the league with 101 points to 100 for
Hugh Grant, former member of Varsity and now with Westminster Y.
There was also a public address system installed with Lynne Pickler at the
mike and although Pickler will never
be mistaken for Graham McNamee
some of the customers claimed it added greatly to their enjoyment of the

In  Winning Spree
Thursday night Varsity B Badminton team won its last match of the
season by defeating 1st B.C. Regiment 10-6. The collegians were successful in all the mixed doubles, but
fell down in the ladies' doubles owing
to the absence of the first two of our
ladies. The Regiment was unlucky in
having the four B team men unable
to play. The final standing of Varsity
in the Vancouver and District League
is not determined as yet but will be
printed as soon as known.

Gleed, Margaret Palmer, Bunny
Pound, Nic Solly, Terry Holmes, Ian

Cindermen Vie for Places
Results of eliminations held at the
Varsity Oval on Saturday afternoon
leave little doubt as to the personnel
of the track and field team which will
travel to Tacoma to vie with the athletes of Puget Sound College on March
21, announces Leo Gansner, president
of the local Track Club. An eleven-
man aggregation will leave here by
car on Friday, take part in the meet
Saturday afternoon and probably return north the same evening.
It is several years since U.B.C. has
been represented at a Tacoma meet
and the proficiency of the southerners
is an unknown quantity here, nevertheless Gansner believes that he has
a crew which is capable of bringing
at least an even share of the points
across the line.
In the sprints Blue and Gold hopes
are based on Ralph Thomas, who
broke the Varsity record for the hundred yards at the recent inter-class
meet, and Bobby Gaul, well known to
all Rugby fans.
Either Ormsby or Clarke will be
the third short distance artist while
Hughie Smith is scheduled to appear in
the 440 yards. In the try-outs Smith
easily outdistanced all competitors
for this event, covering the distance
in 54 seconds, only 1 1-5 seconds
more than the present U.B.C. record.
Smith will also combine with the other
three sprinters in the 880 yards relay
which is to be a feature of the clash.
It seems probable that Alfie Allen
will be called upon to uphold the honour of U.B.C. in both the 880 yards
and the 1 mile. At the eliminations
Fred Salisbury, an Aggie freshman,
ran a nice race over the two lap distance to beat George Allen and Sinclair, his time, 2 mins. 16 sees., however, being considerably below the
standard required for inter-collegiate
Gansner and Dicks are prepared to
guard Varsity's reputation as the
home of good distance men when they
stack up against the Americans in the
2-mile grind. The latter provided quite
a sensation on Saturday when he
showed a clean pair of heels to both
Gansner and Shatford, doing the 8
laps in the excellent time of 10 mins.
21 sees.
In the field events Bob Alpen, individual champion of last Wednesday's meet, and Glen Ledingham will
be the mainstays of the Canadian
squad. Both these men will figure in
the javelin, discus and shot put while
the former is also scheduled for the
pole vault and possibly the high hurdles. Hugh Smith and Thomas will
contest the broad jump and Forsythe,
a new man in college field events, will
endeavour to cross a loftier lath than
the Tacoma high jumpers.
The team will be handicapped to
some extent by the absence of Gav.

Province Title
For Varsity
Wallop Young Conservatives
In Final Game of Series
Varsity's senior "A" women's basketball team cohered itself with glory
and acquired a sizeable collection of
silverware Saturday night when it
annexed the championship of the Vancouver and District League as well
as the B.C. championship by taking
the Young Conservatives 33-15 in the
third game of the playoff series.
The win for Varsity climaxed a
series of ups and downs that had the
dopesters hanging on the ropes. In the
first game of the series the Varsity
girls won with little effort only to take
a pasting in the second game at the
V.A.C. Wednesday night. Just when
everybody was expecting the struggle
of a life time Varsity stepped out
Saturday night and walked all over
the Tories. Women are definitely hard
to figure.
Jean Whyte was the most effective
player on the floor. When the Tory
guards let her shoot long ones she
popped them in with startling regularity and when they tried to check
her around centre she slipped around
to dribble under the basket and score
with equal monotony. Altogether she
scored 15 points as well as holding her
check to three points.
Thelma Mahon, Mary Campbell
and Claire Menten were also very
much in the limelight. In fact Varsity
put up just about the best exhibition
of the season.
The teams:
Varsity—T. Mahon (8), M. Campbell (5), J. Whyte (16), V. Dellert,
G. Munton, C. Menten (6), L. Tour-
telotte. Total 33 points.
Conservatives—B. Passerini (8),
D. Blackburn (4), P. Malcolm, B.
McLeod (3), E. Silverthorne, M. Kennedy. Total 15 points.

A long punt which took a bad
bounce over the head of Derry Tye
and resulted in a try turned defeat
into victory for the Victoria College
Ruggers when they tangled with Varsity H's Saturday at Royal Athletic
Park in the Bird City.
The lucky try was prettily converted by Roddy Mclnness to give the
Victorians an early lead which ultimately brought them the Intermediate championship of B.C. and the
Province trophy for the third year in
In the second period of the game
the Varsity men tore large holes
through the local defense but could
not even up the count. Pearson did get
over for a try but the kick went wide
and the game was lost.
In a vain effort to save the Blue and
Gold, Calland and Stobie combined in
a pretty run through the Victorians
but were stopped on the line.
It was tough for Varsity. The Point
Grey men had the majority of the play
but unfortunately it is points that
win and there we are.

Meralomas Overcome Lead To Win 4-3
Varsity's chances to bring home the Sturdy Cup went by the
board when the students were nosed out by the league-leading
Meralomas in a gruelling struggle at Athletic Park on Saturday
afternoon. A deflected drop-kick and a touch-down disallowed for
illegal interference were the breaks which spelled defeat for the
In the first quarter the game looked like a walk-over for
Varsity.   Immediately after the kick-
Two Series This Week
Presidents of athletic clubs are reminded that recommendations for letter awards are now due and should
be in the hands of the Awards Committee not later than Thursday, March
19th, announces Secretary R. Smith.
Once upon a time (you've heard that before), well, once upon
a time there was a dear little fellow named Henderson. And Arnie
(as he was playfully called by those who knew him) was a really
good boy and always ran the errands for his mother. As time
grew, so did he, in fact he did not stop so they sent him to Varsity
where he turned out to help the basketball club.
• To cut a long story short, Henderson had his reward last
Saturday night. It seems that Mr. Al Hardy awarded a trophy
for the most valuable player in the Vancouver and District league.
And after going into a huddle with himself, Mr. Hardy presented
this trophy to Arnold Henderson.
Seriously speaking, for once this award means a lot to Varsity.
It is just tribute to a great player, a man who has done more for
Varsity basketball than any other, including players, coaches and
trainers. The U.B.C. should be proud of this honor and it would be
fitting to give him a great big hand when he takes the floor.
s.    Mert Keel
Look him over ladies. This is Mert
Keel, idol of the Alberta crowd. He
is a six footer and does things at
centre for the University of Alberta
quintette. Mert has made a name for
himself on the prairies as a high
scorer and will give "Henny" Henderson plenty of trouble.
To go from one thing to another we will now discuss Women's
track. It seems that this line of sport has been rather badly neglected in the past. At any rate no one seems to care for the poor
little girls, that is, on the field. This year, however, the Co-eds
have evidently found a live wire president in Mary Fallis who is
bent upon sending the women tracksters somewhere in an awful
The result of these executive exertions is that of four events
run off, or maybe jumped off last week, three new records were
set and one other tied.   Which is quite good batting, what?
Unfortunately Jupiter Pluvius decided to take a hand in
things that same afternoon whereupon some of the Co-ed entries
thought they had had plenty and toddled off to the gym. Maybe
they vapoured off, says R.A.P. Anyway, the above mentioned
Mary was quite wrath because this caused delay in the program
and was not very sporting on the part of these great big tough
This necessitates the running of the women's relay race this
week, Wednesday to be exact. Arts '31, '33, and '34 are the entries and the freshettes are favoured to emulate their brethren
by winning.

Now that we have had a little relief we -can get back to that
greatly neglected indoor pastime, basketball. The great Arnold
is not the only honor winner on the Varsity squad. Pi Campbell
was announced as being the high scorer on the season's league
play. This is quite nice for the old folks at Kelowna whence Pi
hails. "Push 'em in" Campbell rang the old hoop for 101 points, one
more than the ambitious Hugh Grant of the lowly T' Huskies.
When Adanacs finally snapped out
of it Saturday night at the local hall
of exertion they made matters pretty
tough for Henderson's heavers.
Last night the Varsity crew met
the University of Alberta cagers in
the first of a two-game series for the
inter-collegiate championship of the

hand by the old fireside and ponder
upon their labors. Wednesday, however, the boys will say goodbye to the

good reason, the Royal City. There
the genial Adanacs meet them. What
happens after that is in the lap of
the gods or maybe these same
The Albertans provide the opposition Thursday in the campus edifice
while the week's entertainment winds
up Saturday, also here, against the
above-mentioned Adanacs.
Altogether, quite a week, what?
Thus far the lads have done well
in their expeditions. They have beaten
our friends the Adanacs twice, and
incidentally that Westminster win was
the first defeat suffered by Adanacs
there  in  three long years.
At any rate after this week the
Blue and Gold can have more or less
of a rest. If they beat Adanacs they
are a cinch for the Canadian finals
but if they lose they can sell the well
worn shoes and pawn basketballs or
perhaps they give these last to the
effervescent business manager.
It has been quite a term for basketball and this is one glorious hoop
week to wind it up.
The students know they have a
basketball team even if the promised
pep meeting yesterday refused to pep.
Still the faithful (all thirty of them)
can trot out to the gym and meet the
Albertans Thursday if they have not
done so already.
Besides, they wear the most entrancing sweaters.
off Dal by of the Meralomas was stopped on the fifteen yard line. Varsity
blocked the ensuing punt to gain
the ball ten-yards out. After a couple
of successful line plunges Doug. Gordon, the Varsity quarter, managed to
slip across the line, only to have the
score disallowed on the grounds of illegal interference.
The ball was brought out to the
ten yard line and Gordon booted one
between the posts to net three points
for Varsity. Nothing daunted by this
piece of ill-luck in losing a touch-down,
the Collegians maintained a determined offensive, keeping the orange and
black lads penned within their own
Varsity came within scoring distance time and again only to lose the
ball on downs when the Meraloma defense stiffened.
The third period started off well
for Varsity with the Meralomas on
their own ten yard line. The clubbers
however, had some more tricks up
their sleeve, and taking their opponents by surprise completed two neat
forward passes, netting them a total
of sixty yards.
For the first time the student
superiority was threatened. But they
tightened up stopping two Meraloma
bucks and the Clubbers were forced to
kick. The drop-kick, which was going
wide, was partially deflected by a Varsity man who was trying to block it
and sailed between the posts to tie the
score. Shortly after this the Meralomas scored again, kicking to the
deadline for one point.
In the last quarter Varsity went all
out to win but the Meralomas managed to stave them off and the whistle
blew with the score 4-3 in their favor.
Team: Malcolm, McKnight, Mason,
Morrison, Wrinch, Bains, Ashbv, Verner, Gladstone, Stewart, Wheeler,

Addie Donaldson
The Tom Thumb of the team is
seen above. This lad is one of those
people known as forwards in best basketball circles. It is expected that he
will become quite intimate with the
Varsity guards.

Both games were hotly contested.
U.B.C. women had one goal to their
credit at half time, Carol Sellars having scored. Soon after the whistle
blew, Normal tied the score. Then
Carol Sellars tallied again from a pass
from Bea Sutton. During the remainder of the game each side was striving
to hold down the other. Well!
The U.B.C. wing halves were weak,
so El mi Teppo and Mable McDonald, full backs, had more than their
share of the play.
For Varsity, D. Johnson, full back,
and B. Pollock, goalie, played well,
stopping many shots from the Magee
forwards. Isabel McArthur at centre
tried hard to score. The Magee squad
tallied once in each half, which
finished Varsity for the season.
"Buzz" Fenerty
Buzz is another of those basketball-
rugby stars. He played in the rugby
series against U.B.C. last fall and
then turned to the hoop game. He
cavorts on the defense. His hands, we
are told are very sure and pack an
accurate shot.
