Sidelight! on the
Union Building
Epidemic   Threatens   Campus
About two hundred student* gathered in the gymnasium Saturday
night after the puppet show for a
two-hour dance. Music was supplied
by Reynold Williams and his five-
piece band.
The dance swelled the Building

The Musical Society is planning to
turn over a substantial share of their
profits for "Pirates of Penzance" to
the drive. Rehearsals are going
strong now and, under the direction
of C. Hayden Williams, the show is
expected to eclipse former efforts.

Remember SMUS, the little puppy
that was raffled off at the Sdenct
Ball? SMUS raised about $109 for tha
drive. Wa sent our reporter ta see bow
tha pap wu getting along ia hia new
home. Hit story follows:
"SMUS" ia making himself very popular at the home of Mr. and Mrs. McKee with his brown eyes and new
bark. He developed the bark the other day when he first saw the pet lovebirds of the house and since then has
used it extensively at other dogs, the
birds and the radio.
He sleeps down in the basement and
has a great time trying to get up the
stairs but so far he cannot quite do it
—he can however, get down, in a falling sort of way. Neither can ha yet
jump enough to get into Mr. McKee's
favorite arm chair. As he cannot make
the chairs' he spends some of his time
under the stove and nearly always
gets stuck there and all the household
has to get down on their knees to get
him out.
He is not at all particular about what
he eats so long as he gets something
four times a day. He likes a ball of
wool as well as a raw egg. He is just
getting a taste for slippers.
Everytime that he learns anything
new Mr. McKee puts him up another
year in Science. He is now in Third
Year and has no sups. Housetraining
is likely to graduate him with honours , . . ,

Dave Carey has a money-raising
idea. If the snow continues, he suggests that we build slides from the
top of the Auditorium roof nnd have
bob-sled races. The point being that

From the Pub, where men are men,
comes the proposal for another beard-
growing contest. That'll be alright
if the staff doesn't get any smaller
because of the mumps.
Another Pub idea Is the holding of
a bridge tournament, or whatever
they tan them. Pub bridge experts ara
willing to challenge all and sundry
who enjoy a good game of bridge.
With a fee of ten cents a game, a
substantial sum cold be raised.

The Union Dance reresh ments will

it sky high by contributing in the

Players'   Club  Sponsors   Unique Performance Here
Cleverly staged, beautifully mounted, and punctuated with amusing
songs, the two Saturday performances
of the Cornish Puppeteers here were
given an enthusiastic reception by
large audiences. Sponsored by the
Players Club, the Cornish troupe,
premier theatre school of the Pacific
Coast, demonstrated to great advantage the charm and effectiveness of
one of the oldest mediums of dramatic art.
Playing on a masked stage, the
marionettes gained a strange illusion
of size, and as they performed their
antics before colourful settings the atmosphere of phantasy completely captured their audiences. Despite the
fliinsiness of story and dialogue, the
adroitness of the puppet figures. and
the colour and qualntness of their
action carried the performances quite

H. A. Stone At Vocational Lecture
Mr. H. A. Stone, Manager of
the Hudson's Bay Company,
Vancouver store, is to be tomorrow's speaker in the Alumni series of Vocational Talks.
He will point out the opportunities
that exist in Retail Merchandising for
University students. This address
should attract a great many of the
undergraduates, women as well as
men, as obviously, this is a very
large field for employment.
The Alumni Committee has been
very anxious to have a .speaker on
this subject, and they especially
wished to secure Mr. Stone. The Hudson Bay Co. has shown a preference
for University Graduates for many
of the positions in their organization.
Mr. Stone was scheduled to give this
talk a year ago, but the snowstorm
interfered and it has been a difficult
task to arrange to have him on the
program again. It is no small favor
for a very busy man to give up the
time which one of these talks necessitates, and we hope that the students
will show their appreciation by taking advantage of Mr. Stone's visit to
the campus.
There an, of course, many oppor-
tunties tor woman ln retail merchandising, and Mr. Stone will deal with
these as well as the opportunities that
exist for men.
Possessing a pleasing personality
and having had an extensive training
in the business world, Mr. Stone is
well equipped to give both rn Interesting and a helpful address. He is
appreciative of the problem which
faces the University graduate at the

By Jim Beverldge
A cheerful soul who is entirely competent to cope with
undergraduate actors and their temperaments is Miss Dorothy Somerset, who handles Players' Club productions with
firmness and finesse. Director of several Vancouver dramatic
presentations that have achieved high-water marks in artistic
and dramatic value, Miss Somerset commands a distinguished
position in theatrical circles here.

twenty years with considerable success. The new discovery is however,

Disease    Should   Be
With ten cases reported,
and several more believed unreported, the campus faces a
serious outbreak of mumps.
The condition is more serioui
in small clubs and organizations where students are in
close contact..
There are also a few cases
of German Measles on the
campus, according to the University Health Service.
Most of the mumps cases have been
from members of the Ubyssey staff.
These cases, all reported recently,
have probably come from contact
with a person who was attending University while he had the mump*. To
prevent further spread nmong the
Ubyssey staff and others, outsider*
are advised to stay away from that
office, unless business demands that
they come in. The use of the Pub
phone will be restricted to staff members.
It la pointed out that the two disease* take from twelve to twenty*oae
days to develop after contact. Thla
leads authorities to expect further
outbreak* soon—particularly mumps.
Students who feel in any way indisposed should stay at home and
communicate with Public Health authorities and the University Health
Service. This is the only measure
that will check the spread of the disease.
When mumps is reported in the
home, the case should be immediately
reported. Section 83 of the Provincial
Act on Public Health follows:
"Where any householder knows or
suspects, or has reason to know or
•aspect, that any person within his
family or household has the smallpox, dlptheria, scarlet fever, cholera,
typhus or typhoid fever, measles,
whooping cough, MUMPS, or any
other contagious or infectious disease, he shall (subject tn case of refusal or neglect to the penalties provided by section 111) within twenty,
four hour* of the tune such disease
I* known or suspected to exist, give
notice thereof to the Medical Health
Officer of the municipality or beatlb
district In which he resides."
The above regulation is important
and should be folowed.   it is a Provincial Statute, and not a t emulation
of the University.
Because of the nature of conditions
in the Ubyssey office, members of the
staff who have not had mumps, and
are not immune, are permitted to
discontinue writing until Ji danger
of an epidemic is over. They should
report to the editor if they wish to
take advantage of this rule.
A further Provincial regulation provide* penalties for physicians who
know of cases of communicable disease and neglect to report them to the
Public Health Officer. A breaking of
this regulation is partially responsible
for the present condition on the campus.
The only way to check any spread
of mumps and German measles on
the campus is for the student body
to co-operate with Health authorities. With this done, the disease has
a chance to die out. With no co-operation, a serious epidemic is possible.

According to the University Health Service,
the campus faces an epidemic of mumps. At
first thought, the prospect seems a little hum-
arous, for the victim of mumps is not exact-
ly a serious-looking individual. He may not
feel funny, but he certainly looks so.
But there is nothing funny about the prospect of anything on the campus at the present
time. With the Union Building campaign well
under way, the University should steer clear
of any complications until the money is raised.
A lot of people have a perfectly legitimate excuse to refuse to see students if there is any
danger of catching a disease from them.
Further spread of mumps can only be checked by co-operation of the students with the
health authorities. Cases should be reported
at once and victims should not contact anyone
going to the University. These measures are
easy to take, but it is surprising the number of
people that refuse to take even the simplest
precaution for the safety of others. Let us hope
that University students, with their higher
mentality, will do all in their power to prevent
any epidemic at this time.
A correspondent in this issue has raised
certain objections concerning the architecture
of the Memorial Building. His statement that
the existing permanent buildings are pompous
and "insincere" is well taken. However, we
would like to point out that the Union Building designs which the Ubyssey printed earlier this term, to which he takes a legitimate
objection, have been discarded.
For ourselves we would like to see the Union Building of a boldly modernistic design,
similar to present day architecture in England.
But even in this Canadian backwash of culture
we believe something honest can emerge, provided the architects make the effort to get in
touch with student feeling on the matter.

The poetry of Robinson Jeffers has for some
reason received little attention at this University. Of his work the library has the most
recent, and, I believe, the finest: Give Your
Heart to The Hawks (Random House 1933).
It is usual to say of Jeffers that his writing
consciously and definitely presents incest as
symbolized racial inversion. Much of his earlier work is spoiled by a too labored handling
of this symbolism, the idea of the inevitability
of civilization's fatal introversion.
In Give Your Heart to The Hawks Jeffers
establishes a balance between his story and
its philosophic implications. The morbid psychology is caerfully handled and fully realized.
It ia a finished poem. The poet's feeling for
death as the end of consciousness is manifest,
as always, in his unusual and almost ecstatic
awareness to pain. His people are destroyed by
their own intensity—give your heart to the

Class and Club
Ernest Hemingway's latest collection of
short stories (Jonathan Cape 1934) is called
Winner Take Nothing), and has distinction
largely because of a story The Sea Change.
It is diffirult to write of the merits of a mod
era short story. The style and form are closely
united with the story itself, as is the Tightness
of its psychology.
However, to write as has been done in
appreciation of Hemingway, of the 'suspended'
ending, and of the necessity of regarding the
story solely as a picture, is unfortunate. There
is no such thing as a suspended ending. If any
term is to be applied to the end of a modern
short story is should imply complete and almost terrible fulfilment. The story has been
done with, is competely finished. As for reading
the short story solely as a picture-go a little
further and you will discover the relation of
the picture to life.
_   '\
The Sea Change, which is almost as good as
The Undefeated, and certainly as brittle as
Fifty Grand, has in it all the glittering objectivity that Hemingway brings to a behavioristic
A mood of bitter intensity has been achieved by the author's manner of using steel-strain
ed dialogue to develop the theme of an inevitable rhythm in life that runs behind the personal changes of human existence and that
must be endured.
Made powerful by a poetic economy, the
story is a work of art.

extra-curricular activity.

Correspondence   J
Editor, "Ubyssey," Dear Sir:
John Ruskin once said that it mattered little when a person painted a
foolish picture, but that it mattered
a great deal when people erected a
foolish building, especially an expensive one which was designed to
last many years.
With this in mind I would like to
make a few remarks concerning the
proposed Union Building.
It is highly probable that this building will be designed to "harmonize"
with the ugliness of the existing permanent buildings of this campus. This,
it seems to me, would be very unfortunate.
I have, in particular, two main objections to these monstrosities, they
are insincere, and they are dishonest.
They are insincere because they are
pedantic imitations of dead forms of
the past. Beauty is not achieved this
way in architecture any more than
in any other art. Furthermore, in
denying the structure and materials
of a building we not only lose the
aesthetic possibilities of these things,
but are forced into absurdities, in
which the library in particular
abounds. Last year a perfectly serious student confessed to me that he
had always thought that the empty
niches on the exterior and interior
walls of the library had been purposely left that way in the hopes
that some wealthy donor would fill
them with statuary for the University.
Instances of dishonesty ;.ie almost
too numeiyus to mention: the impossible beamed ceilings of the library, its "marble" floors, imitation
stone walls, metalwork painted to
look like oak, etc., etc.    Deceit may
be  "art",  but  it is   still   true   that
'beauty is truth, and truth, beauty'.
Of all the forms of art, architecture
mirrors the life of the timos as well
as any, and buildings such as those
on our campus are certainly no credit
to anyone. A recent writer suggests
that the reason why our college architecture on this continent is so consistently bad, is that our universities
are out of touch with the life around
But the point which I wish to make
is that not only are these practices
destructive of art, and appreciation
for art, but that they are expensive.
And when we need the Union Building so badly, I think it would be a
shame if any of the money raised
were spent on useless buttresses,
arches, stone facing, or anything else
of the like nature.
Yours truly,
P. H. Mallett.
Dr. D. O. Evans, acting-head of the
Department of Modern Languages at
U.B.C, addressed the Vancouver Institute in Arts 100 Saturday evening.
His talk was on the works ot Andre
Gide, French author.
"Gide has become the supreme ar-
briter of the intellectual life of
France," the speaker stated. "He is
brutal and unemotional, stressing the
conflict between a man's body and
his soul in language full of vitality.
He has been translated into twenty-
three languages."
Saskatchewan Wins
By a unanimous decision of the
judges the University of Saskatchewan was declared winner of the radio
debate last Friday, over the University of Alberta. The decision of the
judges, Sherwood Lett, Reginald H.
Tupper and J. Friend Day, all of Vancouver, was 79 to 87 in favor of Saskatchewan.
The subject of the debate was: "Resolved that trial by jury has outlived
its usefulness." The University of
Saskatchewan had the negative.
Peeps' Diiary
Too bad Dr. Evans didn't tell us before that sometimes something
Interesting IS written in French. Yesterday I discovered La Roche
Ooucauld said, "We would rather hear evil spoken of ourselves than
nothing at all."
Tha^ truth haa been brought to my attention very strongly during
the laat fortnight, and strangely enough, the faculty seem to be even
more ardent believers than the student*!
The Brynelsen Open Challenge Ski Race had to be postponed a
week because Varsity waa competing against th College of Puget
Sound. During the afternoon I noticed that the appearance of unexpected and formidable competitors from U. B. C. caused a harassed
expression to appear on the face of our Pre*, which the sheep on the
Campus now think is the result of overtime work on the Union Bldg.
A dark horse is predicted for the competition next Sunday. In
fact If a sufficient number of dark horse* come out there will be
a special race for them. I have seen a horse In gum boot* but never
on ski*. For such a special treat the' spectator* should donate generously to the Union Building. (This suggestion i* one of Council'* more
fanciful schemes.)
In Varsity's clean-up but Sunday of th* College of Pug*t Sound

Sunday with the morning after behind them.

In honor of the Cornish Player* Saturday night Alan Walsh did
a torreador monologue in costume and it wu only a long time after
she had stopped applauding that Betty Moscovltch discovered her
new hat had been used for hi* headgear.
Betty had heard me ravinf about the bright colored softies to go
with tweed coat* and suits at the Bond Box, and being naturally a
shrew business woman, she had chosen her new hat from their model*.
There is a rumour that Jean Allen's engagement was announced
at the Science Ball, but I know for a fact that next day the most
prominent man on the campus didn't know his brother had gone
with him.   Everyone must have been very happy.
As a member of the discipline committee Alan Morley SHOULD
have been at the Science and yet at 11:30 that night he wa* found
with a "frozen radiator" in Stanley Park. Perhaps he was being
Initiated into the ANTI-Anti-Freeze Society.
Connie Baird got a TERRIFIC run last week—her stocking almost
collapsed. She told me she always gets her hosiery from The Lingerie Shop but that this pair had been sent from London in one of
her tri-weekly letters and she expected them to last but a short
time anyway. Connie doesn't seem to put much faith in anything
from London.
While I was waiting for her to choose her new stockings at The
Lingerie Shop I noticed the display they have of neckwear and
vestees . . .
Pique is the most favoured material this spring with organdie
placing second. But it wa* the frilliness of the display as a whole
that interested me the most.  Perhaps Leap Year is the reason.
Jack McGuire was explaining th-e other day that the correct pronunciation of skiing was "she-ing." I heard later that he was she-
ing down at Mt. Baker last week-end.
Evidently a well known Alpha Phi is the reason why John Bry-
nelson's journalistic style is picking up.   She should be encouraged.
Bill Sutherland was wondering whether he should wear his tails
to the Science Ball or not. If he had gotten them at E. A. Lee's he
needn't have wondered.
Speaking of E. A. Lee . . . stag groups on the campus seem to be
talking mainly about the new stock of jackets and flannels down
there. Evidently the jackets with ripple backs, bi-swings and everything on them but a Christmas tree are OUT!! The new models have
gussets and side vents. And the newest slacks are drape und high-
Tradition has it that university men are the style leaders. With
spring not far away we'll watch E. A. Lee's new jackets and flannels
sprout all over the campus with the crocuses.
I was asked why Mar McGeer cut Dorwin Baird after the last
pep meeting.   The answer is not connected with E. A. Lee.
Last Wednesday Mme. Darlington told us she was late because the
science men occupied all the seats on the bus. What could be the
season for Mme. being late the "morning after" the Science Ball.
I think Mr. Van Vliet had better teach good sportsmanship! Two
gym girls spun their badminton rackets to see which would take Mr.
Van Vliet to the Co-ed.   The loser is now plotting vengeance.
Reg Jessup told me he had at last established perfect synthesis
with his cat!   I know now I am not a genius.
The Science Ball is always good entertainment. This year two
of the entertainers passed out before their act. We went downstairs
to the Blue Goose fairly early in the evening to get away from the
crowded floor but the crowd followed us. The Blue Goose is one
of the most popular places in town after parties.
I was clown at Anne Moloney's Saturday morning to choose my
informal dress for the Co-ed early, I was astounded by the reasonable prices and the wide selection. There were the darllngest
frocks and a large number of those double duty dresses that are absolutely the acme of economy. The wise co-eds are those who get
down early because there is sure to be a rush for informal:) just before the Co-ed.
I discovered last night that Nancy Housser adores being tickled.
One learns some very useful things at Varsity.
I was just chuckling to myself about some of the remarks I heard
at the Cornish puppets.   Moscovitch rolled her eyes at the electrician
and exclaimed "Gee. I'd like to be in the puppets."   He took some
% time to straighten another nail wtih his teeth and answered "Oh you
have to be able to pull wires to get in here."
A vivacious young freshette said that she didn't think their musician "Ed" could ever be dead serious, and Martha Nash, their business manager, casually remarked that at least he would be serious
when he was dead.
Am I disgusted. Jeanie and I went down "propping" for the
Spring Play yesterday afternoon and Jeanie spent the whole time
at Maison Henri, leaving me the work to complete myself. But today
I know thq reason why and I don't blame her at all. They have a
soapless oil shampoo for reconditioning the hair, Jeanie's hair used
to look like moldy hay but it is beautifully soft and glossy now. One
can evidently purchase their special shampoo and use it at home too.
I'll be sure and try that before the Co-ed.
I feel, being squelched by the press, that my diary is a little weak
today.   Better luck to myself next time.

Varsity Feature
Of Pep Meet
Lex McKillop, our local patriarch,
garbed ln fitting (or rather ill-fitting)
costume, gave in the pep mooting on
Friday a soul-stirring recapitulation
ot the superior qualities of the students of the good old days .n '23.
A gentleman by the name of Killam (nobody in the pub knows his
first name) gave a pleasant rendition
of "Goodnight Sweetheart" which
seemed almost too good for a Scienceman,
Cisco Berretonl, accordion player,
proved every bit a* popular at hit
second pep meeting appearance, receiving much enthusiastic applause.
"Four spades," says Baird, and is
doubled by DePoe. "With a queen,
a castle and two knights (note: but
no bishop) I could hold out against
the world," was the echo from the
chess game. Beside* the picture of
the hard-working Ubyssey staff, the
"March of Slime", presented by the
campus historians, alias the pub, took
it* audience to a breath-taking basketball gam*, and finally to a heart
rending mellerdrammer.
Barney Potte gave his inimitable
interpretation of "Nobody's Sweetheart," while Jimmy Douglas rendered the ever popular "Solitude."

At Alberta Varsity
Continued from Pag* 8)
this year is 1673, excluding summer
school and special students, who were
not included in the enumeration. This
represents an increase of 94 from last
year when a similar survey revealed
1S79 students in attendance. 307 of
the 1673 students live outside of the
province of Alberta, their numbers
being divided as follows: Punjab, India, 1; England, 3; United States, 2;
Prince Edward Island, 1; Ontario, 8;
Manitoba, 12; Saskatchewan, 81 British Columbia, 101. The figures for
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British
Columbia all represent increase* over
last year, when the figures were 10,
79, and 96 respectively. Of the ten
cities and towns sending the largest
numbers of students to this university,
two are situated outside of Alberta.
The list of the ten highest towns
and cities Is as follows: Edmonton
673, Calgary 222, Lethbridge 33, Medicine Hat 29, Stettler 20, Vancouver,
B.C. 18, Camrose 15, Moose Jaw,
Sask. 14, Wetaskiwin 13, Olds 12.
While the total number of students
coming from Edmonton, where the
university is situated is of course
large, it does not constitute an overbalancing majority, amounting to only
about 40 percent of the total registration. According to these figures over
12 percent of the students in attendance at this university live outside of
Alberta. About 25-30 percent of the
students come from smaller centres
and rural communities.

We forgot to ask whether the oriental gentleman obtained a sip of the water of life, but he deserved It; we hereby award

We close our little travelogue with a lesson in nature

Chorus: (by the Sciencemen):
The greasy old man's cuffs were
frayed and worn. He reeled into the
bar, and ordered a whiskey straight
with the remains of a once pleasant
English voice, riis taught nerves
seemed to cry out for peace, but the
fiery liquid was only a temporary relief. Mire covered his pitiful thin
white legs, and he had no strength
to wipe it off. He met my eye, and
seemed to see something familiar
there, for his brain semed to grope
frantically out of the dark brown alcoholic haze that surrounded it. He
tottered over to my table, and peered
at me through his rheumy washed-
out eyes. They impressed me, somehow, with a sense of the futility of
life; the watery eyes against the background of the dingy wall, from which
much of the plaster had fallen. He
seemed to be seeing ghosts as he
peered at me, seeing part of a past
which he had desperately tried to forget. I offered him my bottle of dago
red, and he drained it witnout stopping once for breath, then he hurled
the bottle at a tarnished mirror, relic
of the time when this wretched Turkish den was possessed by more fortunate Inhabitants. The crash echoed
throughout; it cut the fetid atmosphere like a pistol-shot; when 1
looked up, the other patrons were
all under tables, with their knives
drawn, ready for murder or worse.
The old man paid them no attention.
You are Bray Runt, once of Vancouver, he said. I jumped nearly a foot
in the air. How did this old wretch
know my name when I had striven to
successfully to hide it under the incognito of Fray Prunt. Perhaps I
omitted to mention that I am the
Ubyssey's foreign co-rrspondant,
seeking the life-stories of our alumni.
The old man continued, "If I told
you my name you would recognize it
at once. You and I once played together at the same table, and ate
from the same plate (how did he
know cafeteria manners at the U. of
B.C.?) I am old, yet not so old, neither, old friend. Liquor and bad companions have wasted away my feeble
frame. I ran away from my happiness to Ethiopia with two erstwhile
companions. They, being members of
the C.O.T.C. were shot In the first
encounter; alas, poor Homer and poor
Monk . . . faithful friends." I rapped
on tbe table twice, and the veiled attendant brought nine gin fizzes. He
consumed them rapidly in succession
and continued: "One of tne French
writers said somewhere: 'If love is
judged by the majority of its effects,
it resembles hatred rather than
friendship.' Well, she said she loved
me, so I said: 'Let's get married, or
.But she said, "Let's get married, or
nothing." So then I thought I was in
love with a pure and beautiful woman; but one day she disillusioned
me ... I found she wasn't beautiful
... in horror, I took the nearest pack
train to the coast, where I enlisted
as a general under Tarrer Ras of
After many encounters, I found that
a woman is a woman, no matter
whether she has auburn locks or
kinky black ones. I became steeped
in evil; one morning I even woke up
with a headache from the night before. My wife in Addis Ababa
stopped my allowance. My wife in
Adoua said the depression had hit
her, and she cut off my cheque. My
wife in Vancouver married a lawyer.
I moved to Singapore, to Delhi, to
Tokyo, to half the cosmopolitan cities
of the world. My wives formed a
club to found an orphan's home. My
name became cursed in all parts of
the earth. Finally I fled to this part
of Indo-China, I was almost dead
when you hailed me. He reached for
the bottle again. The effort proved
too much for him, and he collapsed
on the table. He wouldn't let me
move him . . . "Peace at last," he
breathed. No more was his horrible
past before him; in his delirium he
was a boy again, a pure, spotless
youth, with no wives, walking the
grassy trails with his first love.
"Gawd She was lovely," he breathed,
and the dissolute wrinkles were
smoothed out on his haggard old
face. I recognized him now, for the
carefree youth whose genius was proverbial at U.B.C of whom were predicted great things. "Woman, woman,
you have much to answer for," 1
thought. An ethereal smile lit up his
face, and bending low I caught his
last whispered words: "Blue-green
and auburn: Gawd was I tight."

It was great fun for the audience
on Saturday to watch the Cornish
School puppet production trom the
front of the house—but it was a loj
more enjoyable for the few of us
privileged to see the show from backstage. For a puppet show Is unlike
anything else that has ever been on
our stage—the real characters are invisible to the audience, those people
who pull the strings and make thc
voices are never aeen by the crowd
"out front."
The puppet stage was about 2# feet
by 6 feet, and a foot and a half deep.
Above the stage, both in front and
behind it, are platforms where the
"actors" stand. From this position
they work the doll* and speak the
lines for the doll they are working.
Standing on the two platforms, about
three on each, they keep up a continuous chatter while their fingers do
the intricate manipulations that move
the tiny puppets.
Other member* of the troupe ar*
busy handing up new dolls, pulling
curtains, providing sound effect* and
putting away the puppets that are not
in use. Every doll hang* up on a tall
rack in order that it may not get it*
strings entangled.
The dolls themselves are only about
eighteen inches high. Dressed ln gay
colors, with make-up painted on their
faces, these make-believe people appear shabby when they are not in the
glare of th* bright foot-lights.
The brains of the organization U the
man that wrote the words, plot and
music to the show. Looking a great
deal like our own Professor Drummond, he sits at the piano playing
all the music by memory, A smile
1* forever on bis face as he watches
the performance on the tiny stage out
of the corner of his eye. Attached to
the pedal of his piano are various
sound effects including "jingle bells,"
which he works at ease.
He, along with everybody else, joins
in the chorus of all the songs. Dashing to get new dolls or to make a
sound like a windy day, the stage
hands sing too. Every one cf the visitors soon learnt the catchy tunes and
sang happily.
The show over, much too soon,
members of the gang were busy dismantling the special stage, putting
away the small but efficient lighting
panel, and packing the oolls into
their own boxes. Before long the
stage was empty, a tribute to the
training of this Cornish troupe.
After watching puppets, from before and behind the stage, th* next
picture show or vaudeville performance will seem a little drab and uninteresting. For, of all forms of
drama, the puppet or marionnette
show seems to take the most energy
and to give the most pleasing effect.
Proof of this can be found in the
fact that all the students who saw
"The Prince and the Dragon" are still
singing and humming "I Wasn't a
Little Dragon for a Playmate," the
theme song.

I would like to dedicate this column to all my friends with the
mumps. One by one, they seem to
take it and go. The condition around
the Ubyssey office is really alarming,
we're in a constant state of wondering
who will be next. But to those who
have it—to Margaret, Dorothy, Wendy, Jimmy and Lloyd—all of us here
are waiting for your safe and immediate return.

Harlem  Hoopers  Frisk Friday Near Noon
Harlem Globe-Trotters To Show Their
Ability in Exhibition Game With
Varsity's Senior A basketball team
will have a busy time this week. Today noon, they tackle Bellingham
State Normal, In the Student gymnasium, while on Friday, at th* same
Urn* and place, they will entertain
th* world-famous Harlem globe-trotter*.
When th*y played Bellingham on
thtlr Southern tour, the boy* of our
Alma Mater lost • tough cne, by a
38-25 score. They claim they were
not used to th* smaller, gymn, and
lower roof of th* Washington border
city, and playing on their home floor
today, they Intend to avenge their
former defeat. The small admission
of 10 cent* which will be charged is
to defray the expenses of the visitors.
The Harlem Globe-Trotters, a col-
, lection of coloured stars, i edtty need
no advance publicity. The five "iron
men" who do all the playing, and the
free shot artist, who holds the world's
free- throw record of 499 consecutive
baskets, have electrified the country
in their tour* with their phenomenal
playing. A* an added, or perhaps
mam attraction, the Harlemites put
on a floor show, equally phenomenal
and spectacular as their perfect exhibition of basketball,
When Mr. Sapersteln, the energetic
manager of the professional tourists,
was asked what system his team used
in snaring rebounds, he replied—"Rebounds? . . . Rebounds? ... there
shouldn't be any rebounds!"—maybe
they can't play!
Magee Supplies
Swim Competition
At last some competition is in sight
for the Thunderbird mermaids and
mermen. They have an opportunity
to distinguish themselves next Friday
when they swim against Magee High
School's strong swimming team.
Nine events are on the program, of
which five are for men and four for
women. The University men's team
consists of Norm. Burgess, Jim Hinton, Phil. Margetts, Dick Cline, Stan
Roberts, Ian Smellie, Angelo Provenzano and Archie Byers. The co-eds
who will compete are Peggy Higgs,
Lennie Price, and Esther Bellas.
U.B.C. is conceded a victory, even
though the teams are fairly evenly
matched in the women's events, because of its outstanding men swimmers. The first event gets under way
at 9:45 sharp and admission is free
for all who wish to come down.
Ralph Henderson, member of Varsity's three musketeers, is returning
to play with his team, although he is
at present on a holiday from his work
at Trail. He Is playing in the exhibition game with the Harlem Globetrotters Friday.
Rowers To Leave
On March 3rd
The final crews have been chosen
for the senior eight which will travel
on the 3rd of March. Alex Mcintosh
states that the names will be announced on Friday and that final
plans will be made public.
Alex states, "We are commencing
rowing on Wednesday morning, if we
are able to break through the Ice.
All members turn out, as crews for
the second eight and for the Arta
and Science will also be chosen. The
regular practices on Wednesday and

Announcement of the rowing club
at McGill should interest the rowers
at U.B.C. It seems that McGill, although a much larger and older institution than the University of British Columbia, have not got the pushing force which we so fortunately
have here. McGill has competed in
the annual winter classic every year
since the Inception but last year were
unable to put forward a crew. We
hope that the forthcoming regatta
with Washington will give us a boost
in this quarter. —WESTON.

Organization o! "Chink" — the "basketball-under-one-
basket" is nearly completed. The energies of the basket bailers
who play hour after hour in blithe disregard of Eng. 1 and ME
2a lectures will be directed along useful channes next week
when the first round of the "Chink" tournament will be played.
Several classes, including Arts '36 and '37, Sc. '36 and 38, Aggie
and Teachers' Training have already entered teams and all the
classes are expected to have entered several teams by Friday

Varsity To Meet
Wash. Huskies
Next Week
Varsity pucksters are enthusiastic
over the coming game with the Washington Huskies which will be played
in the Arena in Vancouver on the
Friday after next. Ticket3 will be
on sale at the qu&d office on Friday
or they may be obtained from any
member of the club.
Ralph Cudmore, Aggie president of
the club stated in reference to the
match with Washington, that much
undue criticism of goalie Barchard
was somewhat unwarranted. "Barchard was playing on an off night
and failed to get the breaks. Usually
he plays a fairly steady game and
can be relied upon to show up much
better in the coming game.
This return contest is bound to
show bang-up hockey. It is expected
that more than 1500 will be present,
so gat YOUR tickets early. All proceeds from this game will go towards
the Brock Memorial Fund, to get out
and support it. -WESTON.

Because of the poor condition of
the trail and because of the Intense
cold, none of the Outdoor Club members were able to "mush" out and
let it be known that they were meeting Washington on Sunday. But it
seems that they were very successful and cleaned up in most of the
events.   Results will follow.
The Boxing and Wrestling Club has
now relegated into the hands of Mr.
Van Vltet. He has taken over all arrangements and is giving daily workouts and instruction in the gym. All
Interested are asked to get in touch
with him .
The Club have accepted an invitation from the Meralomas for competition, so that men may be picked to
fight in a tour of the States in the
near future. McCleish, one of Varsity's best men, is out of the running
because ot a crocked knee. Russ
Keillor, John MacLaan and several
others, however, are trying out.

Mount Pleasant Players Win by Score of 34*

City Squad Goes Down for the County
Against the Newsies
Arts '3   and Science '37 Victors in Basketball On
Arts '36 and Science '37 were the
victors in Friday's Intra-mural games
played in the gymnasium. The Arts
'36 class team received 130 points for
scoring 16 baskets to the Teacher's
Training squad's 13 baskets. This
game was very fast and furious and
starred Pryer, the educationalist who
was high scorer of the tussle, scoring
a total of 11 points. Hetherington of
Arts '36 was the next outstanding
player, sinking 8 baskets throughout
the game.
The game was a close and exciting
one but in the end the Arts '36 teamwork proved to be too strong for the
teachers. The game which followed
at 12:45 during the same noon hour
starred Wright, who red the Science
'37 hoopers to glory by defeating the
Science '38 hoop squad to the tune
of 16-8. Wright played a brilliant
game and collected 8 points for his
The game schedule for this week
will take place on Wednesday in the
gym. Teams competing are as follows:
12:15—Aggies vs.  Science  '36.
12:45—Arts '39 vs. Arts '38.
Friday's Intra-mural games have
been postponed because the gym is
being reserved for the exhibition
game between the Vanity hoopers
and the Harlem Glabe-trotters.
Mr. Van Vliet is now working on
plans for a boxing tournament to be
started soon. These matches will take
place during the noon hour and all
classes are to be represented. Points
are to be awarded to the winners as
in the intra-mural sports, that is:
Scheduled boxer present—50 points.
A victory—100 points.
The schedule will be printed in the
Ubyssey as soon as it has been completed.

Varsity's inexplanable "jinx"
worked again Saturday night
at the V.A.C. gym, when they
were nosed out in an exhibition game, by Community All-
Stars. The Community team,
composed mostly of Mount
Pleasant players, won out by
a 34-30 score. In the second,
and feature game of the evening, Province Senior A's eked
out a narrow 37-34 win over
Adanacs, in the first of the
best-of-five series for the Inter-
City Championship.
The preliminary contest was fast
and furious, with both teams checking closely. Varsity made most of
their points on accurate long shots,
while the All-Stars used a last-passing attack, sinking their baskets from
The first minute of the game saw
the Community-ites gain a 3-0 lead
over the Collegians, but their lead
was short-lived. Four consecutive
baskets by "Joe" Pringle sent the
U.B.C. team out in front, 8-3. Scoring a couple of pretty baskets from
under the hoop, Johnnie McLachlan
cut the Varsity lead to a single point.
8-7. The two teams matched basket
for basket until the end oi' the first
half, with the Community team getting the odd point, to make the score
15-all at the breather.
The effects of Coach "Chuck" Mc-
Lachlan's words of wisdom were evident at the start of the second period,
when his proteges grabbed a quick
22-15 lead in the first thr»s minutes.
However, 13 straight points by the
hard-fighting, "never-say-die" College boys, gave them a 38-22 lead with
9 minutes to play.
Playing on a seemingly pre-arrange
schedule, the Community team took
their turn at scoring, making 6 points
to tie the count at 28-all. With both
of the U.B.C. supporters howling
hysterically, "Det" Detwillor sank a
honey of a long shot, to put Varsity
ahead, 30-28. Mixed groans and cheers
resounded when "Wee Willie" McLachlan scored for the All-Stars to
tie it all up again, with only 2 minutes to go.
But once more, it was not to be—
McDonald assured his team of their
well-earned victory, when he sank 2
free shots and a basket, making the
final score 34-30.
All Stars: Barritt, McDonough 5.
McLauglan 3, Hicks 2, Balne 3, Baze-
ly 7, Omond, Garland 2, Fairburn 2,
