Five Days Away
Bonner Probable for
L.S.E.; 3 Possibilities
For President
Nobody wants to be president next
year.
In fact, from all reports, nobody
wants to be on council next year.
It begins to look as if the present
governing body will have to come
back for a second term, If nominations from the student body for the
council positions are not forthcoming
within the next few days.
Aghast at the dearth of nominations, council members this week
racked their respective brains in a
vain attempt to discover some means
of luring power-seeking students into
the fold. Even the suggestion of a
"Free Coke Every Thursday" failed
to stir the apathy of the undergraduate body.
STUDENTS TAKE NOTICE:
THERE HAS NOT BEEN A SINGLE
NOMINATION   FOR   A   OOUNOIL
POSITION   AS   YET
Nominations for student council
prexy close on March 6.
Nominations for other council positions close on March 13.
Flitting about the campus all last
week was Joe Rumour. If reports are
trvie. everybody ls going to run for
council—but nobody ls going to be
nominated.
Archie Bain, Austin Delaney and
Owen Sheffield are possibilities for
president.

C.S.A. Dissatisfied
With Ststus
As L.S.E. Club
Expressing dlsaatiafaction with the
title under whioh Studenta' Council
haa re-tnstated the local branch of
the C.S.A., executive members of
that organiaation will meet today to
discuss what action they wilt take
to change their status from "the
C.S.A. Discussions Club, member of
the L.S.E-"
When questioned by the Ubyssey
as to the club's protest, Val Bjarnason, secretary of the local C.S.A.,
said, "Personally, I don't like the
C.S.A. being made one olub because
the AssemJd^Jj^ajjgposed to comprise all clU-V oh the campus."
Bjarnason did not mind so much
Council's resolution placing the organization under L.S.E. jurisdiction,
although other C.S.A. members complained the club's activities would
be hindered if it remained In this
position.
Farewell Pep Meet
For Clark's Band
GUI Clark and his 11 student
muatclana will aay goodbye to Varsity students at a noon hour pep
meeting next week when the Varaity dance orohestra stages Its
farewell  appearance.
"It la significant," Clark told the
Ubyssey, "that the orohestra haa
made only two offlolal appearances
—Its flrat and its laat."
"Nevertheless," the band leader
declared, "the orohestra Is coming
out determined to show that we
have something on the ball,"
Highlight of the pep meeting will
be the playing of a new aong written and sung by a Varsity co-ed.
Clark refused to state the song's
name or the name of the writer
but announoed that the tune was
"Terrific!"

NEW IMPROVEMENT
A new feature in the compound
steam engine will be demonstrated
by Milton Kennedy and Alec Coul-
son. Thla engine has the characteristic of being able to change from full
apeed ahead to full speed ln reverse
in the time it takes the operator to
shift a lever through twelve Inches
swing.
Explanation of tne complicated
workinga of the Dleael Engine will
be in the competent handa of Ron
Stewart and Harvey Carruthers,
whose experience in B.C. Mines and
Lumber Camps have given them the
reputation of being grade A "Cat
Operators."
MODERN   AUTOMOBILE
The generosity of the Ford Motor
Company has enabled the Department to include ln Its display a cutaway model of a modern automobile.
Analysis of all moving parts of the
engine and chassis is made possible
by special arrangement of the parts.
Harold J. Morris will supervise this
exhibit in the Thermodynamic laboratory.
The Fourth Year Mechanical Engineering Students will operate all
the machinery and will be supervised by the senior students. Fourth
year representatives are: H. Nichols, T. Oranger, S. Oillles, H. Holland, J. Storey, T. McLaren, W. Mills,

EDITORIAL
WHo'sFROMM
To the citizens of the Province of B.C.:
The students and Faculty of the University of British Columbia respectfljl|y request the pleasure of your company at   an
"*mmmW!)fQfg*i*-       AT HOME
to be held on Saturday, February 24, 1940, 1.30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Such is the invitation which has been extended to all who wish
to see their own University on display. We, the -students, trust
that every nwm, womnn and child this side of Alberta will flock
to the campus tomorrow, nnd we hope that all their many doubts
or questions will be satisfactorily removed or answered by the
capable 'showmen* in charge of the numerous displays.
Open House is held but onee in two years. It involves a tremendous amount of both mental and physical work, and it serves
a very important and at the same time special purpose. It provides the students of this University with an opportunity to meet,
and entertain the actual owners of the institution, to demonstrate
to them the material—and cultural—value of the University to
the Province, to impress them with the potentialities of this particular University, and to close, at least to some degree, that gap
which inevitably exists between an institution of higher learning
and the so-called 'man-in-the-street.'
It is more than a possibility that students do not realize before
their graduating year how little the general public know about
the University, and conversely how little the student kens of the
public.
It was not long ago that University graduates were lower in
quantity and perhaps higher in quality than today. It has grown
increasingly difficult to expect the average taxpayer to realize
the value of the University education for an ever growing number
of young men and women, particularly when educational costs
have risen proportionally.
It is for this purpose, to acquaint the public with the aims,
objects, machinery and methods of this intellectual plant, that
Open House is held. It is the duty nnd privilege of every student
here to yivite all of his or her friends to visit the campus tomorrow
afternoon. I.et us crack the record of 1938 when Open House
attendance hovered about the twenty-thousand mark. Let us in.
the eyes of British Columbians live up to our motto. ;
Saturday afternoon as part of their
contribution to Open House festivities.
A running commentary on military tactics will be given by Adjutant W. H. Barton while Lieutenant Ian Orant will lead the gas-
masked soldiers.
The C.O.T.C. display room in the
former Book Exchange, Arts building basement, will be open all day.
Here visitors will view exhibition of
military equipment, gathered during
the  last  war.
Forestry Exhibit
The Forestry Department of the
University has prepared for Open
House a cross section of British Columbia's .greatest industry, logging
and lumbering. This display will be
held in the Applied Science Building.
The exhibit will Include a display
of modern methods of logging and
milling our vast quantities of timber, showing the various stages from
a board to a piece of paper, a door
handle to a pair of silk stockings,
or a shingle to a pre-iabrleated
house. Other exhibits will show methods and equipment for safeguarding
the standing timber from fire and insects and for identifying samples of
unknown wood.
New equipment, such as caterpillar
tractors, hyster-arches and power-
driven chain saws, will be on display.
A special section will be devoted to
the surveying of land and the estimation of timber quantities by air photography.
The structure and growth of a tree
will be shown along with various
methods of determining its value,
size, age and quality.
Electrical Magic
A crackling roaring Telso coil, a
toy train which obeys spoken commands, a loudspeaker audible for
two miles, a teletype machine ln action,  visible  sound   waves.
All these phenomena will greet the
visitor to the Department of Electrical   Engineering   on   Saturday.
Students ln charge will explain
the principle of the capacity relay
burglar alarm. The visitor may interrupt hla own voice by passing his
hand through a beam of light, and
see the reault on the screen. His
hair will literally stand on end If he
approaches the spectacular Telsa
coil.
The students of this department
have prepared an outstanding exhibit which will be well worth viewing.

THB VOTER 8 HOUR
Business management has really only one concern in the
coming election—to see elected that party which will most effectively conduct the country's war effort and at the same time look
forward to post-war needs.
Employees have an identical concern. Even the workers today
realize there is a direct relation between the security of their
jobs and the conditions which government lays down for management. In fact, the employee attitude of "what helps business,
helps me" is now more than a mere trend.
Consequently, what the political aspirants say on the hustings,
over the radio and in the press these next two months will be
appraised by a large section of voters from the common interest
of employers and employees.
In looking backward, the business community will primarily
vote for or against the present government on its record of war
administration since last September. It will consider whether
another government could have done a better job, could have
marshalled better leaders and eould have avoided any mistakes
that have been made.
In looking ahead, the same electorate will mainly weigh the
programs of each party and consider their potential ability and
energy to carry them out. In doing so, however, they will have to
determine their answers to certain questions:
Which party, for instance, will provide the War Cabinet
with the best individual and colleciive administrative capacity?
Which Cabinet will provide the most aggressive and able leadership, invite the most confidence from the most people?
Which party will fearlessly pursue war policies that will
involve a minimum of political extravagance? Which will pare
patronage to the bone and allow the least political preference in
wartime activities?
Which party will be the more inclined to take business men
into its confidence before rather than nfter giving it mandatory
orders; which will avoid needless disturbances to business through
enlisting experienced executives in its administration?
Whieh party will seek seriously to eliminate unessential
public services and expenditures so as to <¥____hre the maximum
money and manpower for essential wartime activities?
[Which will select men and women for wartime duties according to their qualifications, not their willingness to help or their
party affiliations?
Which party will best recognize its responsibilities involved
in acquiring strict control over certain essential businesses; which
will apply the best safeguards against the permanencv of
"control"? .     '
Whieh party will pursue wartime taxing nnd spending policies
which will mean less hardship in the post-war period; which will
best remember that currency debasement is the debnser of prosperity and democracy?
These are the real questions whieh thinking members of the
business community, in fnet tlie entire electorate, should selfishly
ask themselves before they go to the polls next month. Upon the
answers which the party men attempt to supply to these questions
should depend our support at the polls.
To you, then, who want Canada to make her supreme war
effort, VOTE! But vote only after considering well which party
government will serve, in the light of these issues, the country's
interests—whieh nre your interests—best.
Sahara  desert with  sand.
Local horticulturalists will find

study of plant diseases from two

Featured in the zoological exhibit
will be "Sally," a large southern

scientific circles. As the 'entomologists' mascot she Is challenging his
famous sister, the black widow, for
spider supremacy.

Nurses Immunize
As their contribution to Open House
the nurses are going to demonstrate
the uses of the Schick test, the Dick
test and the Tuberculin test. The
nurses themselves are taking these
tests and will explain their results
and reactions to the visitors on Saturday.
After seeing these results, and having their value explained to them,
any visitors who are interested may
have these tests administered to them
t» sixth year nurses. Although the
girls are concentrating on the Schick,
Dick and Tuberculin tests, there are
several others that may be received
if they are desired by anyone.
Biology and Botany
Colorful tropical butterflies, palid
Arctic ice-bugs, black widow spiders,
and salamanders will be on view in
the biological section of the 1940
"Open House" display.

The relationship of all plants from
the smallest one-celled flora to the
largest of trees will be shown in a
detailed exhibit In the botanic lab.

COMMENT
Oerhardl'a Romanovs
The Romanovs would be a fairly
uaeful criticism of the teaching of
hiatory if pedagogical historians
could be brought to read the book
intelligently. Oerhardi subtitles It
"An Evocation of the Paat aa a Mirror for the Preaent" The paat which
he evokes ls often Inaccurately described and his prejudice against arid
tones leads him to distort some of
his conclusions by basing them on
insufficient knowledge but hla attitude to hiatory deaervea at leaat examining.
Conolualona drawn from inaccurate data are often exciting but quite
Irrelevant. But much of Oerhardl'a
material ts accurate, and although
the mirror he holds up to the present may not reflect perfectly, It
should at least be looked into.
Austen Play
March 14*16
Two weeks from today, stude'nts
will remember the three hours they
spent with the hectic Bennet tribe,
and the thrill of familiarity as they
recognized the characters of Jane
Austen's   "Pride  and   Prejudice."
He-men will curb an Impulse to
go again with a bag of eggs to
throw at the excruciating Mr. Collins, D.D., with his prlgglshness, and
his fat calves, and odious obsequiousness.
Female hearts will get back to
normal tempo after the brief houra
spent In the company of Mr. Blngley, who looked like a clipping from
en eighteenth century issue of Esquire.
Like every good play. It works the
old "Boy meets girl, boy loses girl,
boy gets girl" theme Into the plot.
Mrs. Bennet as the world's worst diplomat and rural England's moat
ghastly potential mother-in-law, is a
constant source  of amusement.
Mr. Da icy ia of eourae the "Pride"
hair of the title, with Elizabeth Bennet as the  "Prejudice"  personified.
Captain Wickham Is a dramatic
warning that "a girl can't be too
careful these days" as well as a horrible example of the military
smoothie at work  in his epaulettes.
These are only Juicier morsels
plucked from the pot-pourri entitled
"Pride and Prejudice" which bows
in at the Unlveralty theatre Thuraday, March 14, for your pleasure.

Backman, as publicity manager of

HURRAY   FOR  WOMEN!
The problem of co-education was
a very pressing one before the
women were allowed Into our colleges. Now that they have been let
ln, the problem ia even more provocative. Haa it worked? Are there
Haws? Should It be abolished? Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Bryn Mawr,
Smith, Vassar—do these colleges
gain because they are restricted to
students of one gender (mustn't say
aex) only? Well, The Brunswlckan
at the University of New Brunswick
sent a reporter out to inquire, politely, whether the men thought we
should get rid of the women. The
answer In every case was emphatically, "NO." We quote some of the
comments:
"It's a hell of an idea ..."
"In a hive of bees there should
always be something sweet ..."
Sugar is sweeter.
"There wouldn't be much fun
without  the   co-eds   ..."
"I think It would be all right If
there were more co-eds because
there aren't enough to go around
now ..." Ah! an engineer.
"Woman ia quite neoeaaary to the
life of man ..." Thla one la algned
Earl Morriaon and oroheatra.
"No, because when somebody gives
us a ladles' residence we wouldn't
have anyone to put In it ... "
OFF TO EOYPT

What a build-up for an awful letdown. Professor Humphreys of McOlll Is leading an expedition Into
Egypt. I could have said so right off
the bat, but where would the Interest lie? Are you interested In Egyp-
tlon papyri? Are you what the McOlll Dally calls an "Aegyptologlst"
la person who knows all about ancient Aegypt) ? Well, Professor Humphreys ls. It's all about Paplnlan,
one of the secret lovers of the notorious Empress Theodora. Before he
was executed, Paplnlan gave hts
manuscript "Princlpll Legis Instru-
mentorum Negotlabilltorum", and a
brilliant thing It is, to this hot Theodora kid. Now Humphreys is going
to Egypt to And the manuscript

OFFICERS  AND LITTLE
OFFICERS
While Europe blazes over the Alt-
mark incident and wags around
town say that Germany Is ao sore
about tt she may declare war on
Britain, the Canadian campus is
still resounding to the marching feet
of the C.O.T.C. Every ao often the
campus newspaper will receive an
Impressive-looking envelope marked,
very ominously with the letters
"O.H.M.S." and open it to find Inside
that peculiar phenomenon known as
"Part I. Orders." Where are Part
II. Orders? and Parta III. and IV.?
'At Varsity a military Instructor was
teaching the young men all about
grid north (map north), true north,
magnetic north, and the pseudo-
magnetic north that results from a
faulty compass. It was a long and
detailed explanation and he went
through it slowly and painstakingly
while the atudent soldiers listened
and some of them learned. When It
was all over, the Instructor, very
red in the face by this time, asked,
"Are there any questions?" One
young man stood up and said sadly,
"I don't get lt." The class winced
and ducked as the instructor took
a deep breath and went over the
whole thing over again. Orid north
. . . true north . . . magnetic north
. . . faulty compass . . . flourish . . .

Letters To The Editor
Dear   Sir:
Thanks to the Ubyssey for accurate reporting of "this orchestra
business." However, one correction
to be made. Tueaday'a Ubyaaey,
front-page story — "The orchestra
had been reimbursed by the A.M.S.
to the amount which would have
been paid them by the Newman
Club"—should read—"the amount of
expenses actually incurred in preparation  for  the  danoe"  .   .   .
President Pearson over-atated, under-reimbursed. The difference —

The Real Racine
Discussed By
Dr. Clark
JEAN RACINE  by A.  F.  B.  Clark,
Professor  of   Frenoh,   in  the  University  of  British  Columbia,  Harvard University Press.
This    boon    does    honour    to    out-
University.   It  is  a  Bound  and  brilliant    critique    of    the    work    of    a
French dramatist  of  the first  order
whoae   genius,   for   various   reasons,
haa   been   little   appreciated   abroad.
Dr. Clark's book Is a valuable addition   to   the   scanty   bibliography   in
English on the subject.
Dr. Clark devotes a fascinating
ohapter to the Age of Racine, with
Its amazing contrasts of savagery
and sophistication. "Perhaps no
great figure In literary history," he
cays, "has had his living body so
obscured by a tough carapace of
erroneous emphasis as Jean Racine."
It Is to remove this thick envelope of
mis-understanding that Dr. Clark
e.ddressea hlmaelf In this volume,
And in the course of doing so, the
author makes some profound' and
Illuminating comments on the whole
essence and drift of Frenoh tragic
drama, commenta which will clarify
the ideas of many an Anglo-Saxon
reader, accustomed as so many of
us are to measuring the poetic
drama of other literatures by the
enormous outline and luxuriant abundance of our own Shakespeare,
To dismiss Raolne aa a no more
than poetlo mirror of the court Intrigues and allken amours of Versailles under the guise of Oreek and
Roman drama ls to be entirely blind
to the swift and concentrated psychological drama that Is the heart of
his plays.
THE UNITIES
The unities, whloh to the Anglo-
Saxon suggest a dull and lifeless
conventionality, are here shown to
be as a rule Indispensable to the
speed and singleness of the action.
The "language galant" of Racine is
no more than a convention of the
time, and the experienced critic will
no more be prevented by It from
forming a true estimate of the dramatic foroe of the plays, than he
would fall to give Jane Austen her
rightful plaoe because of her conventional  idiom.
Dr. Clark discusses all the great
"profane" playa in detail, wtth a
wealth of comment whloh Illustrates
his general conclusions and relates
Racine the writer to Racine the
man. The dramatist's "conversion"
and return to the fold of Port Royal
are treated In a moat Interesting
chapter; the author traces the Intimate counterpoint of the artistic,
the worldly, and the religious aspects of Racine.
The qualities which render Dr.
Clark one of the most sought-after
public lecturers ln this city are evident in thla very human and readable
book. He ls a "lettre" ln the best
sense of the word: he brings to his
scholarship a wide and deep humanism which'melts away the centuries
between us and hia subject.
A copy of Jean Racine is available
In the University library. Not only
students of French but also those
Interested tn literary scholarship in
general would be well rewarded by
reading  this  volume.

Dr Hull Sympathizes
LAUGHTER AS
FROSH CHOOSE
PARTNERS
The air of the auditorium was
tense Wednesday as members of
Arts '43 gathered there for the Frosh
olass party draw.
Dr. Hull, honourary class president, assisted Jim MoCarrle, president of the Freshman Class, ln drawing the names. Cheers, applause and
laughter greeted the freshmen and
freshettes as they stood up when
their names were called. An iron-
handed group of boys, mostly ex-
Prince of Wales, seated on the right
hand side of the auditorium, led the
applause whenever one ot their
friends was drawn.
SYMPATHETIC   PRESIDENT
Dr. Hull made appropriate consoling remarks whenever a blank was
drawn for one of the boya. To an
eager-looking fellow, poaalbly one of
hla Maths students, he aald, "Sorry,
better luok next year."
The namea drawn were taken
from th<* regiatratlon oarda made
out before Varaity opened last term.
Members of the Frosh Clasa had difficulty In recognising their old pal
Bill Smith under his offlolal title of
William X. Q. Claudius Smith. They
were also amused when atudenta
were drawn who had "left for bualnaaa reaaona" at Chriatmaa.
During the hour the auditorium
eohoed with auoh remarka aa "Does
anybody know Mary Jones?" and
"Isn't It wonderful? He's always
been my Ideal."
The party will be held next Thursday In the Brook Building.

With a ear crammed full of students, the farmers were on their

As live out ot the seven ears supplied for the relay were donated by

At Frosh
The Frosh have come Into their
own I
No longer shall they be underdogs
to sophisticated sophs or treated with
contempt by upperclassmen (according to Frosh prexy James McCarry.)
As proof of this startling statement,
President McCarry points to the
achievements of the newcomers this
year. They whipped the once-invln-
clble sophs Into submission, broke all
Initiation rules, contributed stars to
athletic teams and frat formals.
CROWNING EFFORT
And now, they are preparing to
stage their crowning effort of the
term, a sooial function which will
overshadow all other social functions
—the FROSH OLASS PARTY on
Thursday, March 7.
Wednesday, bold freshmen and
blushing freshettes gathered in the
Auditorium for the traditional party
draw. Loud laughs (peculiar to the
freshmen) and silly giggles (ditto to
freshettes) greeted each match announced by Honorary President Dr.
Ralph Hull. Incidentally, those who
thought they would escape the draw
by staying away from Wednesday's
meeting will be pleased to know that
their partners' names may be found
beside their own on the Caf bulletin
board.
UNMATCHED  FROSH
Because of the predominance of
men ln the class, some freshmen
found themselves at the end of the
draw minus a girl, but with a complimentary ticket. They, lucky fellows, may escort their best girls to
the party, thus escaping the wrath
which will undoubtedly descend on
many ot their matched classmates.
Mart Kenney, his Western Gentlemen and Oeorgla Dey will supply the
rhythm for the first-year swlngsters
ln the Brock Building from 9 till 1.
The Frosh executive announce that
the dance will be Informal and FREE

Patrons for the party include Honorary President and Mrs. Ralph Hull,
Dean and Mrs. Daniel Buchanan and
Dean M. L. Bollert.
Members of the hard-working committee tn charge of all arrangements
for this super-affair are James McCarry, president of Arts '43; Sadie
White, secretary-treasurer, Joyce Orchard, women's athletic representa-'
tive, and Hans Swinton, men's ath- j

Injuries To Backfield Weaken
Varsity's Hopes Against Reps
In Open House Tilt To-Morrow
WILLIAMS
His  knee   has
trouble   almost
McPhee, Lang, Williams and Hoskins
Doubtful Starters for McKechnie Clash
By DOUO WATT
Consternation reigns at present in the ranks of the English
Rugby enthusiasts on this fair oampus of ours. Following right
on top and partially as a result of the hard-fought Meraloman
tilt, there have occurred an unexpected number of injuries which
have upset the proposed line-up of the Senior "A" squad.
Fast-breaking Ted McPhee, captain of the team, is still having trotible with that broken nose, and will almost certainly not
be playing when the boys meet the Vancouver Rep tomorrow
Also somewhat incommoded
are three members of the backfleld, Tommy "Williams, Bert
Hoskins, and Sandy Lang. Williams received a rather hefty
bashing around from the opposing three line last Saturday (his
friends, the Meralomas, y'know)
and is at present nursing a
black and blue leg.
SORE OAMS
Although his leg
la somewhat bothersome, he may be
shifted further
back Into the fullback position for
Hosklna, who took
over thla alot laat
week, la out of action with a severe
case of water on
the knees
been giving hint
all   season,   but   It
was during Saturday's game that It
really  developed  Into  a  bad   thing.
Besides the possibility of 'Williams
taking over the fullback spot, there
Is also the ohanoe that either Doug
Wilson or Alex Prioe may be playing in this position againat the Repa.
Sandy   Lang  alao   received   a   tough
kick in the leg laat week, and he haa
been   hobbling   around   the   campus
for   the   past   few   days.     However,
he hopes to be out on Saturday after
he gets a few treatments for the injured   member.
REPLACEMENTS DOUBTFUL
It la at preaent doubtful as to
whom the ooaoh will uae in the baokfleld. Bob Field or Andy Johnaton
may move inaide to the flve-eightha
spot, or Ian Richarda may move up
from the Idle Ubeeoee outfit to take
over thla poaltlon.
One bright spot among the
gloom la that the aame scrum
will be featured In tomorrow's
game as played last week. Bald
scrum ranks with the best of all
packs that Varsity has ever produced, and despite Its comparatively light structure, la as faat
and smooth-working as any In the
city. If the students do win tomorrow, there Is no doubt that It
will be chiefly due to the sparkling work of the forwards.
PART OF DISPLAY
The game should be a super-special one to watch, as it will be one
of the highlights of the Open House
week-end, for which reason there
should be one of the largest crowds
at  the  Stadium  of the  season.
The Vancouver lads are determined to win so that they can challenge
Victoria to an exhibition game, while
Varsity crew are just as determined to stop the Reps and avenge their
former defeat by this aggregation.
Game time ls three o'clock Saturday,
nnd the place is the Stadium.

VOUR UNIVERSITY
ON   DISPLAY
PRAISE THB FORD
The strangest things happen to give Inspiration for columns In this day
of Henry Fori, not to forget his life-long companion Mr. W. J. Cameron
and his five minute bromlat-a. For instance, last Wedneaday morning one
Roy MacOonnachle, an insldeous Sclencman, picked up thla scrivener en
route, thus saving said scribbler one bus ticket, and earning gratitude of
aame.
This act of St. Bernardlsm started the grey cells to clicking smoother
than the Engineers three-quarter line on the contributions of Science to
Sport, and we came to the conclusion that the Sllpstlck weilders hold the
key to bigger and better athletic activities on this scenic Oampus.
The Redshirts, always Imbued with proper Faculty spirit, have gone
and got themselves a rugby team this year, and what is more, a winning
English rugby team that is now perched high atop the standings of the
Vancouver Second Division. Thjs much ls straight fact which you can learn
if Mr. MacOonnachle happens to select you as his morning companion.
SCIENCE COMES HOME
This return of the Science faculty Into English Rugby goes a bit deeper
than standings in second divisions, for it brings to mind those glorious days
of the University when the bitterest fought battles of the turf were staged
between the Science and Arts Faculties with a rather homicidal handling
code as their medium.
The day of this Interfaculty rivalry has been done, now, for almost two
decades, and has been swept from the memories of all but the Sciencemen
who cherish the thought of trampling Arts as in the days of old.
The rebirth of Interfaculty contests at U.B.O. would have the most
stimulating effect on English Rugby that could possibly be achieved. For
lt would mean that Instead of entering one strong team ln the Miller Cup
race, now nearly all comprised of Artsmen because the practise sohedule
conflicts with Science timetables, the University would be able to have an
Arts and a Science squad ln the league.
The benefits from such a set-up are numerous. For example the
slightly anemic contests ataged by the Varslty-U.B.C. teams would be
replaced by the gory battle between Culture and Science. Instead of
Artsmen being able to draw from the U.B.C. team, leave the Juniors
gasping for blood, and wide open to the assaults of other first division
olubs, they would be forced to stand on their own feet, unable to use
anyone In Solenoe.
MORE   STRENGTH
This would mean, then, that two top-flight teams would be entered in
the Miller Cup League, and that a Selections Committee could be appointed
to pick a representative team for McKechnie Cup games and special attractions such as the World Cup series with California.
Back ln the days when the University turned out such top flight rugger
stars as Harry Warren, the very life blood of rugby was this friendly faculty
Jealousy. It seems only logical that a representative team entered In the
McKechnie Cup clashes should be comprised of men from all faculties.
Until the sterling efforts of MacOonnachle and Dr. Warren began bearing fruit this year, lt seemed apparent that any hope of a return to this
system was doomed to disappear. If anyone can re-attain the former glories
of U.B.C. ruggers, the feuding Engineers are the men to do lt. And by the
way, boys, I'll be waiting at the gates for a ride in tomorrow.

It took fourteen years to do
it, but the Aggies are sitting
right back on top of the woi-ld
after a sensational victory in
the Arts 20 traditional grind
Wednesday afternoon. Despite
the heavy downpour, the victors
were only a minute and twenty
seconds away from the record
in the eight mile run.
The Rural Runners proved they
had more than enough stamina to
outpace the best Science team, and
washed out all Engineer opposition.
The Senior Artsmen were the next
team back, while the ever-reliable
Anglicans were right back In third
spot.
NO, MOMMA
The next team to finish was the
Frosh eight, who failed to come
through with the record shattering
performance of last year's, although
their performance waa quite imprea-
alve, considering the lack of managership.
'Tls   rumoured   that  their  olass
Athletic   Representative   was    detained, as he had to referee a coed  volleyball  game or  aomethlng.
But   who  can   blame  him.     They
elected him, didn't they?
One of the moat brilliant performances  of  the  eight  mile  grind  was
the   record   shattering   performance
of Ian MoDonald in the second heat,
who,   along  with McLean,  gave  the
Farmers a lead that was never challenged.     DeBeck,   Lloyd,   Harrower,
Johnson,   White  and   Pendray   were
the   other   runners    who    did    their
share to bring victory to the Aggies.
ENERGY MEN
With one of the moat energetic
Aggy claaaea ln the campus history,
the Farmers have been putting forth
a brilliant diaplay ln the Intramural
competition for the Oovernor'a trophy. The Aggies are out ln front in
the point race at present with a total   of  168.
Making things even a little rosier
for the Ploughmen is tbe faot tbat
the field day is coming up, and several of their relay men should oome
through with a good quota of points.
Senior Bees Downed
By Chilliwaclc 37-21/
Play Again Saturday
The high-flying Senior B hoopsters
took what Is quaintly termed as a
"hosing" Wednesday night ln the flrst
of a three-game joust with Chllllwaek Valleys for the Lower Mainland
crown.
Travelling up along Father Fraser
ln the mid-week, the cagers took one
flush on the chin when the Hickeroos
pasted a 37-31 loss on the hopeful
hoorpsters who had their eyes on the
provincial bauble.
Flushed with their triumph at Britannia Beach on Monday, the Bees
were quite disconsolate about the
trimming but avowed that they would
retaliate Saturday night when they
tangle with the Farmers In the preliminary game at V.A.C.
Another loss will put them out of
the running.
Tumblers, Pugilists
In Saturday Display
Even the gym classes that Maury
Van Vllet has been instructing all
year, will be doing their "bit" to make
open house a success.
Gymnasts and tumblers will put on
a show in the gym Saturday afternoon while the Blue and Oold boxers
give an exhibition in the Stadium
ring.
The   gymnasts   have   been   going
through   their  paces  regularly  and
have  some  spectacular stunts prepared,  as well  as  the  ever popular
group pyramid displays.
The  boxers will step into the new
ring immediately following the rugby
game and several sparring exhibitions
will be given, if Maury's Maulers can
be prevented from slugging it out.
