Before an enthusiastic audience of 1200 citizens and students
the British debating team of Ivor B. Jones and Hector McNeil
strove succeasfully to prove thai fie British Empire would not
find it necessary to "follow the Moscow Road."
The unexpected last minute rush necessitated moving the
large crowd which had filled the Oak Room to overflowing, long
before the hour get for the debate, to the Crystal Ballroom, this
too, was packed to the doors.
Mr. R. J. Cromie, chairman of the
debate, thanked the audience for
changing rooms and then introduced
Professor Day, honorary preddent of
the Parliamentary Forum and the
coach of the Vardty debating team.
Professor Day welcomed the team
from overseas, and congratulated
them on thdr numerous successes

Perry went on to explain that the

Russian system. "This system is a

choice of the British Empire. It ensures the fact that only "he who
works shall eat" and only the workers would have a voice in the government. However, the present capitalist system enables many to live
on labour of others and also to accumulate large private fortunes
through profiteering. All this has
been eliminated in the Russian system of government, a system beaten

The exhibits are part of the 120 to
130 travelling collections which the
College Art Association, a subsidiary
of the Carnegie Corporation circulates among colleges for the purpose
of promoting the general education!
and appreciation of art among stu-

Institute to Hear
Lecture on'Wood'
"Why Use Wood" is the subjed
of nn Illustrated address to be delivered by Mr. Roscoe M. Brown,
Superintendent of the Forest Products Laboratory, under the auspices
of th* Vancouver Institute, lt will
be held tomorrow night at 3 15 p.m.
in Arts 100.
Has the lumbar industry a future,
or will wood soon be conddered a
practically useless material? What is
the economic importance of wood in
modern industry? These and other
questions dealing with lumbering and
forestry will be dl: cussed by Mr.
Lumbering is one of Canada's
chief industries and employs a great
number of people. The future of
Forestry concerns us all as Canadian
citizens and every student should
endeavor to attend Mr. Brown's lecture.

Carrothers Will
Address Society
On 'Ec. Situation'
Discussing "The Internationd Economic Situation," Dr. W. A. Carrothers will be the speaker at a
toon to be held in King Edward
High School cafeteria tomorrow under the auspices of the League of
Nations Society of Canada, at their
annud peace conference. Luncheon
tickets costing 35 cents may be reserved from Mrs. W» A. Clark, Bay.
Tho afternoon session of the conference will be held in the school
auditorium at 3:15, under the chairmanship of Rev. G. O. Fallis. Lt.-Col.
T. A. Hiam, a member of the Lytton
Commisrion, whose report is now being so widely discussed, will address
the meeting on the cogent problem
"Manchuria." This will he fd-
by a debate between Major T.
Seudamore and Mr. Leon Ladner,
"Resolved that the League of Nations
has Justified Itself as an agent for
peace." The question will be Judged
by Dr. G. G. Sedgewick.
The evening session, commencing
at 8:15, will be under the chairmanship of Professor G. M. JVeir. Miss
Winifred Kydd, a delegate to the
Geneva Disarmament Conference will
be the speaker.
Students are particularly invited to
attend these meetings.
Dame Vardty held open house on
Tuesday. Her guests were Vancou-
verites curious or even anxious to
see the interior of ber house and the
workings of its occupants.
Some thousand it is estimated, took
advantage of the opportunity to visit
Point Grey. They were shown round
the campus by Prof. W. G. Black,
who was in charge of the venture,
by Prof. A. C. Cooke and Prof. Duff,
of the department of bactlerology,
and others. The visitors appeared
first about .ten ln the morning and
in the early afternoon the influx
reached its height.
The hushed silence in the crowded
library, the deady chatter in the
cafeteria, the disorder of the men's
common room and the order of the
womens,' the irresponsible air in the
Pub. office and the academic flavor
of the Administration halls were all
tasted by the sightseers. Owing to
the crowded condition of the lecture
halls none were entered, but had
they been, one more unique—If not
inspiring—sight would have been experienced.
The opening of the University to
the public was a part of the program

Council To Receive
Drainage   Report
The Stadium playing field is to be
surveyed, by a competent drainage
engineer, in order to draft a plan
for improving the present system, the
Student's Council decided at their
last meeting
At present, heavy rains, leave a
sheet of water over most of the oval,
putting it in terrible condition for \
several days. Players who use the
field when in that state complain
that, no matter what kind of footwear is worn, no grip is obtainable.
These frequent Inundations are believed to result from the presence
of the hard-pan sub-soil a few inches
below the surface. Council's decision depends on the report of the

Players' Club Presents Four One Act Plays
To Thrill Students—Splendid Acting
 —— i
Highlights of the eighteenth annual Christmas production
of the Players' Club were the Prologue to the last play, which
was specially written by Dr. Walker, and the performances of
Bill Sargent and Gerald Provost, whose dramatic and comic
ability were outstanding. Four plays, as usual, were given—two
light comedies, one melodrama and a gay travesty on Elizabethan bombast.

Totem - - Over
400 Deposits
The Totem Drive has gone over
the top and Pat Kerr, associate editor of the Publications Board, has
been appointed Editor. She is making extensive plans for the make-up
of the 1933 Annual.
Vardty tradition will remain un-
brokn for another year insofar as the
Totem Is concerned, for Graduates
will next year have once again a
record of thdr four Unlverdty years
embodied in an annud.
Tentative plans regarding the Totem are now under condderation.
Some changes have been made from
lad year's annual in the interests
of economy:
The print this year will be smaller
and captions for group pictures will
appear only at the head of the write-
ups instead of being blazoned across
the picture as formerly. Every attempt is being made to save space,
and for this reason group pictures
in the Student Government section
will appear three to a page. These
pictures may be in a block arrangement with names beneath or at the
side of the picture, Instead of beneath each individual's picture.
Team pictures may show head and
shoulders only, and space taken up
by the background will be reduced
to the minimum.
Lad year's design will be used for
the inside cover of the Totem, and
pages in the front will be combined
-"Contents" and 'Totem 1933" will
probably occupy the same page, and
the Dedication will be on the back*
of this page. "Foreword" may disappear altogether. The picture of
the Science Building used last year

Militiamen Attend
Xmas Performances
Members of the unemployed Militia stationed on the University En-
downment lands turned out in force
to see the opening performance of
the Christmas Plays on Thursday
evening. They showed a lively interest in the action, and they most
certainly have not lost their sense
of humour through hard work,
judging by the peals of laughter that
came from their section of the auditorium. A military band accompanied
them in their march to the University Auditorium.
> "Was ever a girl in such a rotten,
devastating, boll of a fix!" as to lose
her wedding dress on the teay day
of the ceremony? Such was tbe dt-
uation m which the characters of
"The Bride" found themsdves, end
many Were the complications which
arose therefrom. Mrs. Gordon Shrum
directed the play, the cad of which
was made up entirely of the sex
primarily concerned with such important matters.as wedding dresses.
Tho title role was taken by Odette
Ainaworth, who proved a dunning
bride, endearing in spite of, her fro-
quant bursts of temper and "nerves."
Viold Ferris was effective hi the
agitated role of the mother of the
bride, and provoked much amusement by her repeated Injunctions to
the red of the cast to "keep cool-
nothing can be done without self-
control," while herself on the verge
of "flaming hysterics."
The bride's sister was charmingly
played by Pat Ryan, while Mary
McGeer made the most of tbe part
of Susan, a mdd with more than
th* usual amount of gumption.
Prances Lucas enacted th* '♦vUlaln
of the piece," in the form of Miss
Sparrow, sinister lady who attempts
to coerce the bride into an elopement with her nephew by conceding the fated gown. However, all
comes out right, and the curtain falls
to the cheering sound of wedding

Council Reviews
Financial Reports
Sciencemen netted a profit of 18.09
on their recent undergraduate banquet, according to the statement read
at a council meeting Klonday night.
The financial statement of the Unlverdty Ball was read, while a cheek
for 171.27, comprising the nd proceeds of the bridge and tea hdd under the auspices of the Women's Undergraduate Society was authorised
to be sent to the Vancouver Welfare
Nathan Nemetz, literary representative for the dass of Arts '34, appeared at the meeting to petition
that Council grant the Juniors per-
misdon to hdd then* class party,
scheduled for next February, ln the
Commodore Cabaret. Nemets outlined
plans that the dance should be
strictly informal, should be very little more expensive than one held in
a poorer dance hall, and should be
shielded from the usual publicity
attendant on down-town affairs. He
also declared that "crashing" would
not be allowed. Council refused to
act until formal approval of the
dass of '34 and of the Arts Men's
Undergraduate Society had been obtained.
Other business included the authorization of the making of a survey of the drainage system of the
stadium field by engineers. Council
members felt that no further action
towards remedying the present inefficiency of the stadium drainage
should be taken without competent
advice on the subject. The survey
which is to be made will occupy
not more than two days, and will
cost about fifteen dollars.
The Pep Club's proposal to charge
five cents admission to the Basketball pep meeting on Wednesday of
this week was approved. The object of the charge was the raising of
a fund for the support of future pep
meetings, the club having used up
its appropriation from Council.
Council moved that tenders be
cdled for the photography and engraving for this year's proposed

Class and Club
The excellent showing of Neil Perry and Victor Dryer at
Tuesday night's debute is worthy of more than ordinary
commendation. Faced by men of outstanding experience, men
who have debated the same subject all across Canada, with a
long string of victories to their credit, the U. B. C. men were
nevertheless able to present a most able and convincing case,
which won the approval of half the Judges and a good percentage of the audience.
Indeed, so close was the voting, that many of the audience
were under the impression that Varsity had won. Perhaps the
best indication of the excellent form shown by the local men
is in the declaration of the visiting debaters that after Neil Perry's rebuttal they considered the debate lost by themselves.
For several years the art of debating has been at rather a
low ebb at this University. The splendid revival of interest and
technique as shown on Tuesday night is an excellent omen
for the future. Much of the credit for this outstanding achievement is due to Professor J. Friend Day, whose unfailing interest
and assistance to the Parliamentary Forum is now bearing fruit,
The sane and ordered discussion of questions of public
interest is a very necessary adjunct to a cultural education. The
Parliamentary Forum provides an excellent medium whereby
both public speaking ability and clear logical thought can be
brought to the fore. Thoughtful students of both sexes can do no
better than to take an active interest in this institution, for
undoubtedly many first-rate debaters will appear to carry on the
splendid form shown by Perry and Dryer.
V. c. u.
On Wednesday the Union had the
pleasure of hearing Rev. A. Q.
Weniger who is pastor of Mount
Pleasant Baptist Church.
Mr. Weniger took for his subject
"Making Right Choices." The essence of his address was that "We
should meditate a great deal more on
the wrong estimate of values." He
said that possessing the wrong esi-
mate of values is the cause of the
failure of many people. He pointed
out how that this fact was the cause
of Lot's failure while such characters as Moses, John and Abraham
made a noble success of their lives
for they possessed the right estimate
on* values. He concluded by saying
we should picture how the particular choice we are making will look
at the other end of life's journey.
The Philosophy Club will meet
Tuesday, November 29, at 8 o'clock
at the home of Miss Helen Fdrley,
2875 Wed Twenty-ninth avenue. Mr.
Andrew Broatch will give a paper
on "The Philosophy of Communism."
This week the Womens' Undergraduate Society is conducting its second annual Old Clothes Drive. This movement has
not been officially organized by the whole of the Society, as it
is felt that other matters at present occupy the attention of its
members. It is simply a personal appeal to women students to
help in combatting Old Man Winter.
Last year's drive under Dorothy Myers was greatly appreciated. The clothes were taken to the Santa Claus Fund headquarters, packed in hampers and sent to various needy families.
This year, however, there are more needy families, there must
be more hampers and consequently more old clothes. Students
are advised to contribute suitable warm clothing. Contributions
are to be left in the hallway outside the Book Exchange, where
they will be collected in due course. The drive depends entirely
on individual interest, and it is expected that, without the customary "pushing" the women of the University will respond to
the call to
"Give more for a greater need."
It is with considerable pleasure that the Ubyssey is able to
offer its sincere thanks to all those who have shown sufficient
faith in our management to produce a decent annual to make
their deposit or sign a caution money waiver.
We have always been confident that student support would
be forthcoming, and basing our actions on this, have done a
considerable portion of the preliminary organization work. Present plans indicate that during the first two weeks of the spring
term, all the photographs for the volume will be taken on the
stage. To do this, it will be necessary to arrange a program over
the holidays, so that graduates' pictures may be taken without
interference with lecture periods, so a request appears in the
paper, for all graduates to turn in their time tables. These will
be filed and an attempt made to suit times to time-tables.
In connection with the economy which will be necessary,
we wish to impress upon the students the fact that, within the
limit of the funds set aside, as much material as possible will be
included. In this respect, we will say, that every co-operation has
been extended to the editor.
We ask the graduates and others concerned to watch notice
boards from now on in case further announcements are made,
and to give the same degree of co-operation which we have been
accorded outside the University.
With this issue the Ubyssey ceases publication so that a
loyal staff may have time to catch up on a little back work. The
editor wishes to thank all those who have given unstintedly of
their time and ability to the work of the paper.
If it were not for the fact that our budget is for forty issues only, and that first and second year students, who do most
of the reporting, have examinations coming up, publication
would continue.
We have tried to offer intelligent editorial criticism of campus activities, and to give a comprehensive report of student
doings, as well as to learn something of journalism by a practical method. In this connection, we wish to state that any criticism
or suggestions are very welcome, either from the staff or from
the students. The correspondence column is provided for this
We would also like to thank the printer, and his staff for
their excellent co-operation, which has made our own work considerably easier.
There will be an open meeting of
the Literary Forum in the Lower
Common Room at 3:30 on December
9. Each member is to bring a friend.
Please notify May Bescoby if you
are coming.
The Letters Club will meet at the

Arts '34 held a class meeting in
Arts 100 Wednesday. Reports on
athldlcs and debating were given,
and discussion followed on the Class
Party which is to be held February
24. The class sanctioned the decision
of the executive to hold the party at
a downtown dub, but this action
mud be ratified by Men's Undergrad
and Student's Council before, definite
plans are drawn up.
"Good news doesn't travel ss fast as bad news. It spreads like good molasses
—slow and steady." Mr. Picobac wm referring to tho steadily growing
popularity of Picobac tobacco among pipe smokers.
"Aad another thing.. .speaking of molasses", continued he. "When people

"Thread O' Scarlet," produced a truly
dramatic effect in the scene at the
lonely inn on the day on which a
supposed murderer has been hanged.
The unfolding of the mystery and
the discovery of the true murderer
proceed to a climax in which magnificent work is done by Bill Sargent, while C. Clarke does not come
far behind him. Reynolds Esler and
Bill Lynott played convincingly the
parts of the two staid and troubled
villagers, friends of the murdered
and murderer. Innkeeper Tom Lee
and Traveller Doug Smiley added
worthy bits of characterization to the
whole work.
Cockney Comedy
A. W. W. Jacob's farce entitled "The
Changeling," followed. Honors were
about equally divided ln this play,
directed by Dr. Harry Warren. Mas-
da Coagrave and Cyril Chave gave
excellently sustained interpretations
of Cockney humor, while Stu Keate
contributed a characteristically lively
bit of acting aa the friend of the unfortunate husband who is in wrong
with his wife, and gets in deeper as
the play proceeds.
Moat and Vegetables
The evening concluded with the
riotous travesty, "Smithfield Preserved," produced by Dr. Walker.
The vim with which the cast entered
into the spirit of the play was
perhaps best typified by Gerald Provost's "Tender," the vehement butcher who declares war on the vegetarian element which threatens to
ruin his trade. Verna Shilvock as
his termagent wife and Doug Brown,
the quivering apprentice, back him
up admirably. The opposing forces
are assembled by Hugh Palmer, as
Herbaccio, the vegetable seller, who
enlists the aid of a Mountebank,
Jack Emerson's third role in a Christmas production. Gordon Hilker, as
the son of Herbaccio, provides a love
complication by falling in love with
Margaret Cunningham, daughter of
the Tenders. The whole tangle is
straightened out by the Queen, in
which role Mary Griffin combines
Imperial qualities with charm. "Background" ia adequatdy provided by
Alice Daniels, Frances Mclntyre,
Christie Fletcher, and Bill Birmingham.
Powers Behind tho Throne
Credit is due to costumes and
"props" committees, as well as to
the back-stage crew, who were re-
spondble for scenery aad lighting
effects. The staging and lighting effects of the lad play, in particular,
drew forth much favorable comment,
as well as the fain scene in "Thread
O* Searlet"~F. L.
At the Show Shop 1
The trend of contemporary drama
as Influenced by the motion pictures
is decidedly retrogressive. The very
few attempts labelled as "Drama"
have been woefully weak ot late—
the American productions being the
worst offenders in this respect. The
unities of time and place are, we
"|fear, relegated to limbo, the only one
remaining being that of action. So
we find, that all we see now is a
series of events, and a good deal of
action taking place on a convenient
landscape, tied together by a story—
any story will do, for to call it a
plot would be too kind—and a great
deal of the profiles of the leading
man and lady, unless they have a
poor profile, in which case we see
them full view.
The number of times an actor appears is not governed by a plot but
whether or not he may happen to
be a star, for a star mud keep before his public, and there we are.
"Ask Beccles," an entertaining
crook comedy, ia the current vehicle
for the British Guild Players. This
play serves to Introduce to Vancouver audiences, Forrest Taylor, a new
member of the company who won
widespread applause for his clever
portrayd of Beccles, the charming,
but unscrupulous crook. The play
is above the excellent average at this
theatre, and is well worth seeing.
The feature starting at the Beacon
Friday ia "Down Our Street," a picture well up to th* standard of
those of the, past few weeks.
The play itself deals largely with
characterizations of the Cockney,
that much-abused, much-loved fellow, and contains delightful bits of
Cockney humor. Has a far better
idea of plot than one generally sees.

Harry Avison, prominent worker ln
the Student's Christian Movement,
delivered an address at the Tuesday
noon meeting of the club, pointing
out the contribution made by Religion to the solution of social problems.
"The Unlverdty and the Church
are the two Institutions which keep
Society in the proper prospective.
Three phases of the church as representing religion have direct bearing on sodd life" Mr. Avison declared. These pha».s the speaker
pointed out are:
1. In teaching that the chid end
of man i& to glorify God, the church
tends to work towards the highest
good hi society.
I. In sanctioning certain social services, vitd today, which are too
often neglected by temporal authorities, the church carries on a service
recognized as a great contribution to
society.    .
In constant effort to bring about a
new society based the highest prln-
dples, religious Organizations do their
part for the bettering of existing
"A good Christian must be not
merdy good but also good for something." concluded the speaker.

were in .the territory but now a number of mines have opened and the
country is gradually being opened up.
Its future is uncertain, for a great

Pep Meeting Success

about one o'clocks, or even two o'clocks/ Barney and his boys entertained by popular request with
"Minnie" and Freddie Ross pan-
nicked the massed assembly as a son
of Israel. Charlie Pawlett played a
Cockney role, while Charlie See and
Bill Arstad acted as Chinese and
Swede respectively. The next number was also a requed, "Qoofua."
This number featured Barney hlsself
and George Haekett. Thora Petch
followed with a chorus of "Please"
and Barney finished with a smooth
arrangement of "Rhythm." About
half way through the number Hal
Straight was thrown bodily on the
stage and the Big Boy, on the spot,
came through with a nifty buck-
and-wing that was the unpremedi-
ated feature of Pott'a Pourri. Lyle
Stewart and Bill Tremalne followed
this effort with a couple of flips,
Tommy Mansfield came through with
a double front somersault, and in a
few minutes everyone in the building was scrapping for a "spot" in
the show.

dare not cut down her army or navy
due to the great numbers who would
be thrown into the ranks of the unemployed, and the presence of the
army and navy stand for a perpetu-
d succession of wars, large or small.
He said that the war of 1914-1918 was
a capitalistic war which caused a
brief era of capitalistic prosperity.
But after the war "When the soldiers
stopped firing their bullets, the
capitalists started firing the workmen." The soldiers returned to find
that work was not to be had, and
demanded government aid, which ln
many cases was given.
The downfall Is Inevitable. Britain's
groat banker, Montague Norman, admits as much himself. Hie only way
out lies on the Moscow Road" eon-
eluded Mr. Perry.
Ivor Jones thanked all concerned
for the wonderful reception they had
been given since their arrivd on the
coast. "I claim this to be the mod
difficult because refuting our honourable opponent's arguments is a
simple and easy task."
"I have no Intention of defending
the capitalist system, I only wish to
prove to you that communism is not
the way out as far as the British
Empire is concerned," contended Mr.
Jones. He discussed the birth of
socialism and the Marxian theory.
"WhUe Socialism is an apped to the
hands, to the heart, and to the body,
our worthy opponents insistence on
following the Moscow road is an
apped to the feet," complained Jones
amid much mirthful applause.
"Let. us leave our opponents to follow
to great Moscow on the antiquated
vehide of their own choosing—a bicycle built for two" he concluded.
Victor Dryer, second speaker for
the affirmative, dwelt on the Inevitability of the downfall of capitalism. He declared that all institutions
have grown, flourished, and fallen ln
the pad, and that there is no reason
why capitalism should be an exception. Ho also enlarged on the eventual change of economic systems, as
they developed glaring faults.
''Today there Is a threat of war In
capitalism. Everything Is at hand to
produce a high standard of Irving, yet
thousands are la want
The recent display of vidence in
the streets of London, th* mutiny in
the British navy, and trouble with
police forces all over the world, all
bore out Dryer's   remarks   that   a
revolution would be coloured by vio
lence and bloodshed.
"Precedent to the change from thi
old to the new order would have
be the liquidation of the capitalist
class, and this could not be accomplished without a great ded of opposition. Their inefficiency is causing protests even from the middle
classes. Individualism will have to
give way to collectivism and the
British Empire will have to follow
the Moscow road," he concluded.
Regarding the speaker for the affirmative's Impassioned statement,
Hector McNeil declared, "I have
never enjoyed anything so much
since I left Hyde Park. I have seen
communism first hand, and I believe
that I am more qudlfied than anyone else to give the truths of communism. But I do not wish to argue
particular points: that would be
easy. This evening I wish to speak
of broader things."
Mr. McNeil did not attempt to defend capitalism. In an admirably
expressed speech, delivered with all
the fervour of a poet, he contended
that communism is not the way out
for the British Empire; he stated
that communism is a complete negation of the principles of morality. Its
power lies in force, offering no alternatives.
"Wo mud look for sdvation other
than by the forceful materialism offered by the Moscow road. Th* now
policy of the British Empire Ilea In
idealism and spiritualism," concluded
Mr. McNdl.
Contrary to general expectation
only one rebuttd was granted, and
this to the affirmative. Neil Perry
dwelt on the inevitability of force
In vthe downfall of capitalism, and
that dthough the speakers for the
affirmative declared that there were
alternatives to the Moscow Road, no
definite mention of any were made.
He concluded with a summary of
the contentions put forth by the
speakers for the affirmative.
The Judges decisions were rendered
and It was found that they were evenly divided on tho Issue. The deriding vote was loft to the audience
and after a standing vote the Judges
gave th* doddon to the speakers for
th* negative.
Ernie Brown, convenor of the debate, stated that dthough there was
some disagreement concerning the
decision, he felt that the debate was
an outstanding success.   Innes Mac-

the No Trumps Varsity women's
hoop squad came out on the wrong
end of a 22-12 score Wednesday
Play was ragged at first and Varsity didn't wake up till half time
when the score, was 19-6.
In the second half the students
rallied but were not strong enougn
to pull up their score very much.
Helen Joost went in at centre and
scored all the points, while Margaret
Hall, a strong guard, was sent off on
fouls. Mamie McKee, a newcomer,
played a good game.

Silver and China
Art Club Topics
Two illustrated addresses on "Old
Silver" and "English China" were
given by collector-connoiseurs at an
Art Club meeting held last Wednesday. Tbe papers were read by Mr.
R. H. Taylor and Mr. J. Ridington
Mr. Taylor speaking on "Old Silver" outlined its history since the
days of the cave-man. "Any piece
of silver," he said, "may be traced
by its markings, that is the date letter and the marker's initials. He
went on to say that the value of silver did not necessarily depend on
its markings but on its beauty of
line and gracefulness of symmetry.
"Sheffield Plate," Mr. Taylor continued, "is not really silver in the
true sense of the word. It owed its
popularity to the fad that it was
cheap, being a copper base plated
with silver.
Mr. Ridington, speaking on "English China," stressed the fad that
collecting china need not be ex-
penrive, and that if it were not for
collectors we should not have had
any beautiful pieces of china handed
down to us. He then traced the development of china in England,
pointing out that at fird it followed
the Chinese dyle both hi design and
pattern as well as hi color. Porcelain is closely allied to china for
collecting purposes, and Intereding
studies may be made with specid
regard to color. He ended up by
saying that a few pieces will more
than repay the outlay of a few dollars.

Adanacs Defeat Varsity
With Thrilling Finish
At Westminster Arena
Royal City Crew Pull Away In Final Momenta To Win By 37-34 Score — Mayers
Spectacular With Deadly Shooting —
Half-time Score 17-16 For Varsity-
Play V.A.C. Saturday.
Thrills galore were dished up to the frenzied basketball
fans at the New Westminster Arena last Wednesday night, when,
in the last two minutes of play, the well-groomed Adanac machine pulled away from the scintillating Varsity aggregation to
eke out a 37-34 victory, and take top place in the Burrard
Basketball League.
With the score seldom showing more than four points ad-
vantage to either team, the spectators were kept in a continual
state    of     excitement,     as    first*-
one team and then the other
would gam a slight load, only to lose
It a few minutOs later. Th* final
result was a question to the very
lad play, as Vsrrity was bearing
down hi a lad desperate effort which
almost resulted in tying the score.
Great credit is du* to Wally Mayors of me Adanac quintette who was
th* main factor In tho Royal City
victory, scoring a totd of U points,

with a nic* shot from the ride.
d'Easum secured for the Royd City
and Nicholson and Barddey both
war* heard from, to put the Blue
and Gold squad ahead 7-4.
A deadly fidd basket for Mayers,
and a foul Shot for Barddey ended
the scoring for severd minutes, as
Vardty suffered plenty of tough
breaks on shots which peppered the
back-board. Matthison cam* on for
Barddey, and on the next play Pi
scored on a well-timed pass from
Nicholson. Matthison scored a moment later and Nicholson followed
soon after, while Adanacs, secured
one foul, to make the score 14-7.
Half-time Score 17-16 For U.B.C.
While Matthison scored a basket
and a foul for U.B.C. Fraser and
Mayers tallied five points between
them, and Mayers broke through
again on a beautiful shot, to end
the half at 17-16.
During the interval the overwrought onlookers sought to keep
themsdves amused by tossing pennies to a scrambling crowd of youngsters who went through the mod
violent contortions imaginable to
secure the shekels. Several freshmen and Howie Cleveland with his
scarf were recognized hi the middle
of the fray.
With the resumption of play Campbell Increased the students' score
with a beautiful long, looping shot,
but Mayers and d'Easum followed to
put Adanacs ahead by one point.
Although Pi retaliated a moment
later with another pot shot, Mayers
opened up to score two baskets and
a foul, giving the New Wedminster
lads a 25-21 lead.
Score Tied At 25-25
Vardty ran into another streak of
midortune after this, which was
findly broken with a tally by Bardsley on a nice solo effort. Bob Osborne, who had been working like
a demon dl game, showed his ability to click ln the pinches by counting two foul shots to tie the score.
With the game in its dying minutes, the crowd fairly went wild
with yelling. McEwen made good on
a long field baskd, and Bardsley

to make the count 31-35 for Adanacs.
From this point on the Royal City

Varsity fans were raising the roof in
their efforts to encourage the team.
Alpen came on for Bardsley. Hooker scored a foul to put Varsity within two baskets of victory. Shiles
counteracted this a moment later,
but Nicholson equalized to make the

Play V.A.C. Saturday
Saturday night the students hook
up with the V.A.C. team in another
league encounter. The boys have
only three more games to play in
the pre-Christmas schedule, and
should they win all three will still
have a splendid record to carry Into
next term's performances.
In this, the last issue of the Ubyssey for the fall term, it
is interesting to gaze for a moment in retrospection at the athletic activities and achievements of the students of this University.
Tnis season the U. B. C. has engaged in sport in a big
way and has entered teams in every major sport played in the
city. As usual, the Blue and Gold teams have exhibited a true
sportsmanlike spirit in all encounters, and have made a very
creditable showing.
The Canadian Rugby club, with three teams entered in
league competition have concluded another season. Although
the Big Four squad, consisting mainly of rookies, were unable
to win more than one game in their schedule, they nevertheless*
impressed the fans with their earnestness and ambition. BotK
Senior City and Interscholastic entries showed to good advantage. With ihe introduction of Canadian Rugby in the high
schools, a better showing may be expected out here next year.
As for English Rugby, all three teams have performed better this year than for some seasons. At present, the senior team
ia in a three-way tie for leadership in the Tisdall series, while the
second and third divisions are proving a constant threat in their
Basketball, which has captured the interest of both the men
and the women of the campus, is functioning in top form. While
it is too early to make any predictions as to the success of most of
the teams at thia time, it ia safe to say that the Senior "A"
men have a good chance of copping the Burrqrd League title.
The Track Club has successfully completed its first meet
and its first road race. Its early Invitation Meets were an Novation this year, and speak well for the spirit of the club.
Soccer, advanced to sub-major standing last year, has proved worthy of the position by gaining promotion to the First
Division of the V. and D. League. So far the squad has lost only
to North Shore United, finalists for the Dominion Championship this spring.
In the way of minor and sub-minor sports, teams representing their Alma Mater are engaged in Badminton, Ice Hockey,
Grass Hockey, Swimming and doll
Besides entries in downtown* leagues, two leagues, functioning only on the campus, attract many competitors who
would not otherwise turn out. These are the Interclass Soccer
and Basketball Leagues. The Soccer Club was the pioneer in
this line of sport, putting up the Soccer Cup four years ago for
annual competition. The league is an undoubted success. Basketball, also, embracing both men and women, is off to a good start.
Reviewing thus the year's activities, we feel safe in saying
that, despite reduced attendance, the depression and the many
other reported handicaps of this session, the 1932-33 athletic
season will be an unqualified success.

team broke it a long series of victories on Wednesday, November 23,
when it went down to a high class
team of North Vancouver players on

team encountered severe competition
from the outset and was unable to
win any of the mixed doubles
matches, although this part of the
