The Oxford undergraduate magazine, through an article by its editor,
disclaims ull responsibility for what
is termed the Oxford accent. They
claim Oxford is not responsible for lt
at all, at all, and wish a note to be
made of this.
The students at Oxford don't mind
being called Communists, blue stockings, woozy-minded, but the Oxford
accenters?   Puleeze!
The accent, they say, is traced to
Cockney English, ir. a form of snobbery, and moreover, it haa disappeared.
Professor Knox of University College states that there is no proof that
it originated at Oxford. The British
Broadcasting Company doesn't like it,
and is making progress toward its
elimination on the ether waves.
If you go to Oxford and mention
around the campus that it's a jolly
aaaaaawftuhnoon, well, when you say
that, smile!

The Gazette at the University of
Western Ontario has been buzzing
about the campus in search of information about the ideal mate, and
here', what they found:
The ladles wanted: a gentleman six
feet high, and 172 pounds of him,
medium dark in complexion*, bo
mustache, in sporty tweeds, good at
sports, bridge and dancing, definitely
they wanted him dancing. There was
no mention of Intelligence or manners. What is this modern youth
coming to?
The gentleman wanted her five foot
five, and 122 pounds (probably indicating a light eater), good at games,
bridge and dancing, specially dancing, a sense of humour, and moderately fair academic standing. They
wanted black hair, blue eyes, and
fair skin.
And there you have it. We hope
the ideals get together some time and
marry each other. It would eliminate a lot of unfair competition.

Six Hopeful Politicians
Seek Presidential Honors
Six aspiring Alma Mater Presidents filed their nomination papers yesterday afternoon for the election to be
held next Monday. Candidates in the running include
Murray Mather, Jack Shaneman, Walter Kennedy, Stuart
Keate, John Sumner and Bill Sargent.
All the nominees have been fairly prominent in campus activities during the past year, three' of them having
been members of Council. Keate was senior editor of the
Ubyssey in 1932-33 and last year was elected as Junior
Member of Council. He resigned his seat shortly after
the beginning of the fall term and was succeeded by
Murray Mather, the present incumbent of the office, and
another aspirant for the presidential office.
Jack Shaneman haa occupied the responsible position of Treasurer of the Alma Mater Society during the
past year. Walter Kennedy is a Science man and is now
I president of the class of Science '35. John Sumner is a
well-known member of the Parliamentary Forum, and
has been active in intercollegiate debating.
Bill Sargent is now the president of the Arts Men's
Undergraduate Association, and an active member of the
Players' Club.

Intermarriage Possible
The "de facto" ri Incrimination, prejudice and racial distinctions, could
not be overcome except by a considerable lapse of time. The dissolution
of such prejudices could be either
biological or cultural. Biological assimilation, i.e. intermarriage, would
be likely and perfectly possible. The
quasi-scientific belief of deterioria-
tion through inter-racial marriage has
no foundation, lnferiortly of some
children as a result of such marriage
is not due to biological but rather for
social reasons.
Cultural Assimilation
Mr. Angus cited many cases to prove
his point. He explained however, that
the present risk of contemptuous disdain for children from such marriages
should not be ignored by people contemplating inter-racial marital life.
Cultural assimilation can take place
by thc total extinction of separate Oriental communities. Specialization 'n
any cne industry should be avoided,
for ultimate assimilation can only bo
accomplished by the scattering of thc
different races into different societies
or occupations.

U. S» Journalists
Edit Today's Sun
Seventeen students from the University of Washington took over all
issues of today's Vancouver Sun for
the second time in two years.
Familiar to many U.B.C. students
as the editors of the "University of
Washington Daily," they are under
the directorship of the U. of W. department of journalism, headed by
Dean Vernon McKenzie, a former
Canadian journalist.
The group visited the campus yesterday, and were entertained that
evening at the home of R. J.
Cromie, owner and publisher of The
Vancouver Sun.
Editions of the Tacoma News-
Tribune and The Seattle Star are
also issued annually by "the Dally"
The International Players delighted
a capacity house Saturday night with
a farcical comedy about a "crook,"
called "Believe Me Xantippe." How
a crook melodrama could be a farce
is not apparent until one knows that
the performance of the crime is sanctioned by a detective and that the
fugitive from the strong arm of the
law makes his escape from jail with
the full co-operation of the deputy
The plot of the play centers around
a bet made by George MacFarland,
a man about town, (ably portrayed
by Leyland Hodgson) that he can
commit a crime and not be caught
by any member of the protective
forces of the country till after one
year has passed. Sufficient is it to
say that he almost reaches the end
of the year only to be captured by
Dolly Kamman (Barbara Brown) tha
daughter of a sheriff. The inevitable
consequences ensue. They fall ln
love. From there on the plot becomes
more involved and more humorous.
The play is well worth seeing and
performances will continue the rest
of the week.
"Imagine a musician capable of
writing a concerto at the age of 4
and j symphony when only 13—such
was the divinely inspired genius of
Mozart," stated Mrs. Edith Mllloy at
Saturday's Vancouver Institute meeting, which, under the guidance of the
B. C. Music Teacher's Federation,
took the form of an "Evening of
In opening the program Mrs. Milloy
gave a brief resume of the life of
Mozart whose works supplied the
musical program. "Mozart's works
are always clear, refreshing and
transparent. Unlike many of the
great masters he wrote with ease, so
his compositions ore characterized by
spontaneity, happiness and freshness.
Divine Inspiration
"Although he only lived to be 35
he wrote 49 symphonies, 26 string
quartettes and 11 operas, not to mention innumerable shorter works. He
was a most unusual child genius—at
the age of 4 he was composing, although he did not yet know the notes
of the scale—an undisputable case nf
divine inspiration."
Despite this marvellous heritage,
Mozart's life was not happy. He was
not appreciated in his native village
and although he was happily married at the age of 25, he was constantly worried by financial troubles. This
was largely responsible for his premature death. He was burled in n
pauper's grave at Vienna whose location is still unknown.
Ernest Caldwell, well known local
baritone, rendered selections from
Mozart's operas, The Magic Flute and
The Marriage of Figaro. Dorothy
Tennant, whose soprano voice greatly pleased the audience, sang three
Mozart compositions, Deh Vienne,
Non so piu and L'Amore with violin
obligato by Jean Tennant.
Russian Translation
In keeping with the subject of th.
evening Dr. A. F. B. Clark of tbs
Department of Modern Languages,
read his translation of Alexander
Pushkin's "Mozart and Saliere." In I
introduction Dr. Clarke stated that
although the works of Pushkin are
practically unknown in the English
speaking world he is regarded in his
native land as Russia's greatest poet.
The program was concluded by tlie
Vancouver String Quartette who
played 2 movements of Mozart's String
Quartette in G Major. The members
of this aggregation are Grace Hastings Dresser, 1st violin; Betty New-
on 2nd violin; Harold Hogue, viola; and Maurice Mile.,   cello.

Players' Club spring tour this year.
There has been one already.
"Caesar and Cloopatra," the spring
play, may be too unwelldy for travelling, but that is not true of "Millenium Morning," the one-act farce
presented at Homecoming last term.
So this sucessful little play is being
taken around the city to advertise the
big one.
The club entrained for the hills of
Shaughnessy on Thursday afternoon
and performed at Prince of Wales
High School. The next jump was on
Friday afternoon to Magee High
School in Kerrisdale. Other :.fgh
schools will probably be visited tills
The performances have been very
successful, the play, with it university
atmosphere and boisterous humor,
having a strong appeal for high
school audiences.

of the following: Nancy Symes, make

Stewart, lighting; Gordon Hilker, director, and the cast, Margaret Cunningham, a co-ed, Stu Keate, a pro-
fesor, Archie Dick, a museum attendant, and Gerald Prevost, a museum

Gerald Prevost's astounding make-up
as a prehistoric Neanderthal man. Hi-
face is drastically remodelled with
putty, and his whole1 body, excepting
the small portion covered by a deer
skin, is darkened with red stain.
This took so long that it was necessary to begin the make-up in the
Green Room and to drive to the
schools with a face that nearly scared a service station man out of six
year's growth and caused much mystery when its owner was led from
the car to the stage with his head
swathed in a jersey.
Stu Keate,'s neighbors were also
highly shocked when the ape man appeared on the Keate back lawn on
Friday to have his picture taken in
costume and make up, much to the
curiosity of all the small boys, girls
and dogs in the district.

Musical Society
Plans Recital

noon-hour programs, the Musical Society will offer a concert featuring

Thursday noon.
As this year's Gilbert and Sullivan
opera was staged one week later than
ordinarily, which thus upset the
schedule of the Players' Club, the
program will be in advertisement of
the latter association's spring play,
Caesar and Cleopatra.
Mozart's Symphony in G Minor,
Solemn Melody, by Sir H. Watford
Davies, and Beethoven's Pastorale
Symphony will make up the program.
An item in Friday's Ubyssey stated
that the Musical Society had incurred
an expense of $210 for their noon-
hour recitals, This figure actually
included all expenses of the year, including the director's salary, piano
tuning,  ancl  administration.

With nomination for Student's Council approaching, the poor student body will once
more be besieged with the electoral platforms
of hopeful campus politicians.
It is an unfortunate fact that platforms of
candidates for office on this campus are consistently the most banal and fatuous imaginable. Earnest young orators trot out all the
worn bromides that have been evoking yawns
since 1915. The pages of the Ubyssey bristle
with somewhat illiterate letters from candidates, most of whom write their letters from
the files of the previous year.
As far as constructive suggestions are concerned, the majority of platforms are.either
utterly devoid of inspiration ,or quite unworkable in practice.
It is about time that some bright soul invented some real propositions to place before
the student body.
With presidential elections looming on the
horizon, thoughts of the coming session in
which the new prexy must govern arise.
Some things will happen which, although he
is not responsible for them, will attach a certain ludricous slant to his rule. Certain things
happened in Mark Collin's reign by which he
will be remembered far more than the good
things which he accomplished.
First and foremost, he will be remembered
for the ridiculous situations which the discipline committee placed themselves in during the
past two terms.
The co-ed non-smoking rule evoked the
greatest number of laughs. The conscientious
committee made it a point of approaching all
smokers of the weaker sex appearing at Varsity functions and reminded the said delinquents that they were liable to a fine if they
did not extinguish their cigarettes immediately.
Upon being informed that the offender
against the pristine rules of the institute of
learning was not in attendance, and that therefore the rule did not apply to them, or given
sometimes, just a plain go to , they retired
in a very undignified manner, to the amusement of all bystanders.
All this happened when, far from the hotels
and halls whore these dances were being held,
in fact away out here in Point Grey where the
University of British Columbia happens to be
situated, girls to no small number were smoking freely in the various hide-outs of several
major clubs and organizations here on the
Instead of turning their energies toward a
more useful system of discipline, such as one
that would clear the library of those selfish
individuals who hog their seats while attending
lecUnvs, (his is what occupied the major share
of their attention.

I'd like to be, just for your sake,
Some rather nasty little snake:
Cerastes, asp, or Crotalus,
Small and intense and venomous.
And where you would be sure to pass,
I'd coll up tensely in the grass;
And my efficient fangs I'd shoot
Into your large fat foolish foot,
Stabbing through gaiter, sock and shoe,
Injecting venom into you.
And if you in your terror made
Silly pretence to do first-aid,
I'd creep behind as you sat,
Bite you again, and say, "that's that!"
Under a nice cool stone I'd lurk
Merely to watch the poison work,
And at the moment when you'd see
I'd done the business thoroughly,
And you turned black, and tried to pray,
I'd laugh in my ophidian way.

Torvald the hooker, I can see him yet,
Big shoulders hunched against a drift of rain
Snatching a moment from the highball strain
For the curt comfort of a cigarette,
We heard the chaser yell: no time to duck ....
Death on a line's-end hurtled through the air ... .
I felt the wind of Death ruffle my hair
As the bright, angry steel snaked past and struck.
Gods, I know well it is not mine to say
When you shall spare, when nonchalantly lean
And strike.  But, gods, if you yourselves had ever been
Smoke-hungry on a raw and rainy day
You would have held Death leashed a space, and let
Torvald the hooker have his cigarette.
Early when the roosters crow
Before the little stars are gone,
To the cold hearth I must go
And put the fire on.
Lovely are the shining flames,
The sparks fly swiftly as desire;
I look on in sorrow sunk
Sad, by the fire.
Suddenly it comes to me ... .
O thou faithless lover,
All night long I dreamt of thee,
All night, over and over.
Tear after tear now, slow
On my hot cheek falls down.
So the day approaches ...
O, would that it were gone!
Only a tree beneath
The moon's quiet face
Only a white tree veiled
In bridal lace,
Shaking it fair frail robe
Against a screen
Of blue Infinity
Broidered with sheen
Of  stars .    . the  simplest  things:
Yet Beauty strays
Abroad, and hath forsook
Her hidden ways.

pire, was the case of a certain student who fell
into disgrace for supposedly printing an item
in one of the downtown papers which was
taken over for a day by the staff'of this college publication, an item that was, again supposedly, not altogether in keeping with what
university students should read about those
who are employed with the money that accrues from their fees.
That the discipline committee should profess to control such activities of students off
the campus is no more absurd than that university students should be forbidden to drink intoxicating liquors while at the downtown cabarets as well as at Varsity functions.
Let's hope that next year's edition of the
Discipline Comittee will show more judgment,
common sense, and strength, than has this |
year's aggregation.

the stages, though reasonably large,
run true to form by having curtains that seldom work.
A balky curtain caused an embar-
rasing moment for Stu Keate and
Margaret Cunningham during the Friday performance. The play ends with
them In a frantic embrace. The curtain is supposed to close before it
becomes too serious, but it stuck
obstinately on Friday and the loving
pair were left to face a jeering audience. They held the close-up nobly
for a minute, and then decamped In
confusion just as the curtain finally
consented to move.
Something of the tour spirit is

Dear Sir:
It seems deplorable to me, and I
feel sure to all people with a sense
of fair play, that the University
should have ln its halls such a cad
who in posing as a student sports
writer, should continually watch for
opportunities to find in Varsity affairs subjects for his too frequent
coarse articles in the Sports Page of
the largest Vancouver daily newspaper. I refer to that self-termed
"student" who had In Tuesday's evening issue of the Province a write-up
which was his derogatory version of
the reason for Varsity's attempted
postponement of the Senior A basketball play-off game, scheduled for
Thursday evening, was postponed until Saturday, after the Co-Ed Ball.
Whether or not the team wanted the
game postponed for the reason given
by this person of "deep and reflective thought," namely that some of
the members of the team might want
to attend the famous function—that
is not the question. If such were the
truth, where is the wrong? If the
popular (?) reporter of the admirable slang vocabulary was not at the
dance himself, did he not want to
go? Of course, he, being only a
Sports Page athlete, would not have
to sacrifice the enjoyable evening.
But why ridicule the athlete who
would? Sports writers in general
are broadminded and fair. But why
should this small-minded version cf
such, attempt to degrade, In the eyes
of the large public that reads tho
Sports Page of the Province, the admirable basketball team of which
Varsity students should be, and I
think are, proud?
Surely the team, that has already
gone far this year and that may possibly go farther once again, deserves
more support and respect than allowed by this publicity man seeking
his own popularity. It would seem
that Varsity students have little sense
of fairplay if they allow to pass un-
censored such derogatory comments
about an outstanding University team
that has done so much to bring favorable and neede-1 publicity to the
The vocabulary of this "would-be
Walter Winchell" is Indeed praiseworthy in one who advertises himself
as a student. His article, apart from
terming his Alma Mater "dear old
Whoozis" and the basketball players "steaming athletes," contains all
the stereotyped expressions from
"sour grapes" to "the woman pays."
A certain amount of reasonable college spirit Is desirable even in a student of this type.
This is not the first occasion on
which the "student" reporter has
written caustic and unfair accounts of
Varsity sport in ruch a mean way.
Why not confine them to the Ubyssey — provided tho admirable paper
would accept th.m? But students
could then easily, refute his words
and too, they know him well. The
reader of the Province must take his
word—and think of the added publicity for the ambitious novice.
Such   exploitation   of   the   Varsity
name and reputation by an embittered
mercenary is to me disgusting. I hope
more feel the same way about it.
Yours truly,
One of '34.

Is my sister a pal! She borrowed
my blue dress and wore it to some
barn dance or something and sat in
a pool of coffee, and me paying instalments on the thing for three
months. And the funny part is she
never told me but innocently hung
It back in my closet and when I found
out was one night she had gone out
in my new hat which I charitably
offered her in a virtuous moment, so
I didn't have the opportunity of tying
her new permanent in knots or wrapping her ears around her neck which
I would dearly love to have done.
My sister may be a very fine girl and
all that but there are times when I
wish she'd get herself a nice huibard
in the Civil Service in Hong Kong.
Not that I wish her any hard lu k
but I really think she u like Ho'.rf
Kong. She teaches Sunday School
and washes the dishes on Thursday
night and never do I remember her
forgetting her key and mother sec*
retly thinks she's a junior saint or
something but if you forget your key
she sleeps like a log till you have to
wake up mother and dad not that I
actually blame her for that, but you
would think that a person would
have enough decency to know that
when somebody comes to see one a
sister fervidly listening to the radio
ln one corner doesn't add much to
the atmosphere and even when you
have finally succeeded ln showing
her the way out she comes drifting
back looking for her knitting.
I'm not so spiteful as to wilfully
go and pour coffee on her dress just
because she wrecked mine but I have
a feeling a pair of her crepe stock*
ings may mysteriously disappear out
of her drawer.

In an editorial entitled "Campus
Addition,' in last Friday's Ubyssey,
attenUon is called to the fact that
Varsity students should receive first
chance for employment on the construction work to be undertaken by
the Union College this summer. This
is undoubtedly true. The question
that now arises, is, what is going to
be done about it? I understand that
we have an employment bureau here.
Has i' approached the Union College
officials about this? If not, will our
elected representatives, the Students'
Council see that they do? Or will
the whole thing be left to take care
of itself, in the usual manner of such
projects on the campus?
Here we have a chance to do some
concrete good for our fellow students,
some of whom are in desperate need
of employment during the coming
months. It will be a rotten shame
if we do not make sure of it for them.
This is a clear case where our Legion
of Supreme Potentates could justify
their existence if they would come
down out of the clouds long enough
to do so.

presentation by the Uttle Theatre
that opened the Festival. With the
rich apartment of Florio the Florentine poet as scene the play carried
through at a high tension, to the climax that was probably one of the
most powerful of all plays. Those
taking part were Mary Reynolds, Joan
Miller. Guy Glover, and Falrey Ellis, with G. F. Scott directing.
Suffering from contrast to this brilliant drama was "The Wings of Life,"
Camosun Players production, written
by a young playwright and played by
a young caU. Suffering from inexperience, they gave as good a performance as possible with such a play.
Clever lighting, giving the effect of
sunset and the coming of darkness
behind the impressionistic scenery
was an interesting feature of this
"The Birthday of the Infanta," once
hailed as outstanding Players' Club
Christmas production wu revived
by the Players' Club Alumni amid a
beautifully arranged set. Directed by
Professor Wood this tragedy adapted
from the story by Oscar Wilde, was
well played by Georglna Elson, as the
Infanta, Beatrice Wood, Everard Nash,
H. M. Cross as the Fantastic and Beth
Fraser as the page.
Playing the lead herself, Mary
Reynolds, writer of •'Dust Into Oold,"
gave the audience a fantastically
gruesome production. Mixed with
Black magic and humour this tale
laid in a garret in twelfth century
gave the three players, J. W. Plommer, Ross Lort and Mary Reynolds,
an excellent opportunity for character acting.
Debunking history it may be, but
as a play, "Elizabeth, the Queen," is
one of the most powerful and tense
dramas presented. Nor is the effect
carried out only in the spoken words
and acting itself, for a simple yet
most effective set gives to the whole
the atmosphere of grey dawn in the
Tower of London just before the execution of Lord Essex, lover of the
Queen. The role of Queen was played
by Joan Miller, one of the outstand-
on the contrast between the slovenly
enunciation of some University student who introduced Dr. T. Z. Koo
over the radio, on Sunday night It
is claimed that the contrast with the
Oriental gentleman's polished diction
was positively painful.
It is bad enough when the careless
indifference that characterizes Varsity functions, productions and activities is confined to our own premises,
but when it is deliberately forced
upon the notice of the public, the
only appropriate punishments that
occur to anyone with a sense of loyalty to his or her Alma Mater are
flaying alive and boiling In oil.

This sort of thing naturally brings
me back to the Players' Club. I am
resolved to see if a little help beforehand will be any better than criticism
I have for many years been an enthusiastic partisan of this organization. This led to some satisfaction on
my part when I was informed that
they were annoyed by my criticism
of the Christmas plays. If this annoyance made them determine to give
no opportunity for such criticism of
the Spring play, it will have done
them a service.
For a long time the Players' Club
has been an asset to the Univeraity,
but of late lt has slumped. If It can
do Caesar and Cleopatra in manner
equal to which it hu presented previous Shaw plays, one of which, Pyg.

being a brilliant effort, it will have

The particular point which I wish
to draw to our Thespians' attention, u
that it is not the star parts which
should engross their attenion, but the
Petty details. Nothing ao dearly
marks the difference between 'ha
mediocre and the finished perform-
Mice as the correct and competent
handling of the minor items, be they
of acting, of lighting, of scenery, of
audience management, or most im-
portant of all, of the "walk-on" and
"mob" partt.
Let us hope that the next week
wlU see these things attended to, if
they have not been already. And let
the Players' Club remember that
nothing is "good enough" If it is not
perfect, and there will alwaya be
something left that they can Improve,
right up to the time the curtain goes
up. Also, let them remember that,
though "Caesar" ,ind "Cleopatra" may
be responsible for the success of the
play, even the stage door-keeper may
be responsible for its failure.
Nothing would make me happlea
than to find that the Flayers' Club
Spring Play furnishes no material for
the succeeding issue of "Sneers and
ella-llke romance of a slave girl who
married a prince.'

The Thunderbird ruggers are champions once more! Nobody seems to be sure what they are champions of, but they
won the senior league knockout series last Saturday when they
downed Ex-Magee by a 3-0 count, and covered themselves with
glory. Glory is right. Playing against a fast, hard fighting Ex-
Magee fifteen, who were assisted throughout the game by an
astigmatic and doddering referee who appeared to have a minimum affection for the collitch boys, they put on the best exhibition of the English code that has been dished up for the delecta

ball up the field time after time, only
to be disappointed by the kicking of
the Magee backs, or by their final line
of defense, Referee Tees. This at last
led to an exchange of compliments between Captain Mercer and Mr. Tee, in
which Mercer was loudly supported
from the stands.
The spectators were treated to a
most exciting display from this time
on, Varsity working like fiends, in an
effort to score, and, with both forwards and backs clicking perfectly,
playing wonderful rugby but the combination was too much for them, and
the half ended with the board showing a double 0. The last few minutes
saw some great kicking by the Ex-
Magee backs.
Magee kicked off with the wind in
their favor, and then started an epic
struggle that lasted all through the
first half, during most of which the
Thunderbirds were penned in their
own territory, and put on a wonderful display of defensive rugby. The
first thrill came after several minutes of very even play, when Apple-
garth, of the Exes dribbled across Varsity's line for what looked like a certain score, but Ken Mercer, appearing
from nowhere, made a spectacular
dive that was more like a flight, and
lit on the ovoid to save successfuly.

The second half started with Magee playing well into Varsity territory, but a few minutes soon showed
the Blue and Gold to be superior in
all departments and they started a
drive that kept their opponents on the
defensive for the rest of the game, even though the Exes were allowed to
play offside at will. When they had
penetrated about to the thirty-yard
line, the Thunderbirds were awarded
a penalty, and tried for a field goal,
the ball striking the upright, and
rebounding. The forwards then shoved
the ex-students up against their line,
and charged them again and again, at
last forcing their way through, only
to have Magee save. The Redshirts
dashed up the field in their last offensive burst, which was promptly nullified by a counter attack, in which the

This brought on a brilliant exchange

the backs, in which they crossed half
the field and all the way back again.
Pass after pass flew out in an apparently aimless manner, as man after
man went down before the Magee
tacklers and each time just as the
stands would swear the burst was
ended, a Blue and Gold shirt would

When the ball was placed for the
convert kick, an excited Magee man
mistook the movement of the kicker
for the commencement of his kick,
and rushed out to kick the ball away.

their try at the convert. After a couple
of minutes desultory play, the game
ended, 3-0.

but were unable to score. Vancouver broke fast with Abercrombie
scoring. Varsity were then rewarded
for a concentrated attack on the goal,
with Ono scoring. Abercrombie added another before the interval for
Ono scored for Varsity shortly after
the start of the second half. Abercrombie scored for Vancouver half a
minute later, also added another five

In one of the best exhibition tilts
seen on the Coal City grounds this
year, Vanity Senior Soccermen played
Nanalmo of the Intercity League to a
4-4 draw last Sunday before an appreciative crowd, many of whom felt that
on the run of the play the Blue and
Gold lads deserved a still better fate.
No scoring took place for the first
20 minutes. Then Gray drove a hard
low shot from a good position which
struck "Daisy" Waugh as it went in.
Varsity fought back and forced corners on both sides, but all to no avail.
The Miners" halves and inside forwards were combining beautifully at
this stage, and when the right-half
hoisted a pass over the backs' heads,
the tricky "Daisy" dashed in and put
the sphere past Greenwood who neglected to run out.
McDougall Scores For Varsity
With five minutes left in the first
half Archie McDougall accepted a perfect pass from the left and crashed the
ball by Inkster ln Nanaimo's goal.
Nanalmo led 2-1 at half-time.
Varsity appeared rejuvinated after
the breather and attacked resolutely
from the outset, the forwards were fast
and the defense was clearing finely.
A goal seemed inevitable and come it
did when the left-winger was successful with a pile-driver. Varsity kept up
the pressure, only the fine work of
Inkster between the post preventing
them from adding to the score. Nanaimo on the other hand, made but infrequent sallies into the Students' half
i of the field. On one of these, however,
| Gray again found the net to put his
1 side into the lead at 3-2.
KosooUn Converts Penalty
At the other end Captain Kozoolin
skied a pass from Hugh Smith, but
in the next moment converted a penalty kick given against one of the
defenders for unlawful charging thereby once more knotting the count.
Fifteen minutes from the end McDougall worked his way through the
opposing fullbacks and scored with a
fine low drive which gave Inkster
no chance. This put Varsity ahead
at 4-3.
Waugh Scores Again
The Islanders seemed rattled now,
but went to work despite the fact. They
were rewarded with only a few minutes remaining when Waugh headed
in a'spectacular goal on a pass from
his right-winger. The home crowd
went wild and yelled for a fifth marker, but it was not forthcoming, and
the game ended in nobody's favor.
For Varsity, all played well, with
Millar McGill and Jock Waugh on the
defence, Bill Wolfe at centre-half and
Archie McDougall on the attack, particularly outstanding, Nanaimo were
best served by Inkster in goal, the intermediate trio, and Waugh, On the
forward line. Matt Ginnis refereed.

Wednesday's   Game   WiU   Take Place At
U.B.C. Gym, 8:30 Sharp
Hundreds of hitherto dormant basketball fans filled the
V.A.C. gym, even the standing room, to see the Province get
a lucky win over U.B.C. by a 33-32 score. The accusation that
basketball has been slowing down was absolutely disproved on
Saturday night. There has hardly been a more exciting and
faster game from the spectators' point of view in years.
♦ Scoring In Spells
The game started fast, both teams
rushing up and down the small V.A.C.
gymn to the cheering of a wildly excited crowd. Provide opened the
scoring, and after 3 points by Osborne
they left the Varsity team in the background. The Thunderbirds rallied
when McCrimmon came on the floor.
Three baskets by the big boy, and assorted points by his teammates were
the highlights of the period. Varsity
lead at half time wit ha 18-14 score.
Anybody's Game
After the interval baskets by Wright
and McDonald Increased the U.B.C.
lead. But Province got under way
once again to bring the score to 24-84.
Then the battle began. A Province
foul shot made a one point difference
in the scores, and a series of alternate baskets by both teams kept the
crowd in a frenzy. Then came the
Province luck, as the whistle blew
leaving them with a one-point lead.
Bardsley dominated the scoring for
Varsity in the last few torrid minutes.
Fist Play
It was anybody's game, although
Varsity looked like a sure winner
until halfway through the second period. The basketball was fast and careless, but the crowd showed by their
en thusiasm that they preferred this to
the more careful and finished type of

WinJSki Meet

In the first Intercollegiate ski competition held on the Pacific Coast,
the representatives of the University
of B. C. defeated teams from the U.
of Washington ana the College oi
Puget Sound. ~h. meet too* place
on Grouse Mountain last we^k-end
and it is honel that it will be the
first of a long series of such encounters.
The meet ran for two days, the
cross country being run on Saturday
and the three man downhill race, the
slalom race and the jumping contest
being held on Sunday. Saturday
night at the Chalet a very enjoyable
dance was held. Dean and Mrs. Buchanan were present as patrons of
the dance.
The cross country race results were
as follows: Jeckel Fairley, U.B.C,
won individual honors by coming
first; Fred Thirme, captain of the U.
of Washington tern, second. On team
points, the U. of Washington led with
a total of 2 points, C.P.S. was third.
The U. of Washington won the
three-man downhill relay race, their
two teams coming first and second,
with U.B.C. third end fourth and
C.P.S. fifth.
Varsity won the slalom race, when
B. Taylor took first place. M Chamberlain of U. of W. car^u second.
In th. jumping, Vanity wero tha
only entrants, Doug. Ma.Ucy was first
with Doug. Bell second.
The most outstanding feature of thc
meet was the indon.itable courage and
good sportsmanship shown by the
College of Puget Sound. They were
handicapped by having only four mur.
on their team and it was doubly ha.cl
for eac _ man since each had to enter all events. It is hoped that our
friends fro-n Taro i ,1 w.U have more
men to c: ter in nevt year's ski moot.
