B. C. Music Teachers Sponsor
Program on Famous Composer
A program devoted to works of
Brahms wm given by members of
the B. C. Music Teachers' Federation at the Vancouver Institute on
Saturday night. The meeting wu
held In the First Baptist Church and
a largo audience attended to hoar the
program arranged by Mrs. Walter
Miss Jamea, president of the Fed-
oration,   gave   a   brief   sketch   of
Brahms' musical career and made
very helpful comments on each com
position before It wm performed.
The Rhapsody for contralto solo
and male Chorus wis the most interesting presentation, of the evening.
Marian Copp's voice la particularly
suited to a composition of this kind
which requires sympathetic interpre
tatlon and great depth erf feeling. A
group of eight male voicw provided
the necessary background for this
work which wa# conducted by George
Courts with Idha Rogera at tiie
plan*. '>$/'■', '."
The program was opened with the
Impressive Ave Maria, Op. 13, and
the'MinnUed, Op. 4. These two pieces
were charmingly given by madrigal

Isabel Gartahore, soprano, expressed

Norma Abernethy overcame the interpretative difficulties which are
foimd In Brahms' piano music, in
her playing of two intermezzos and

Brahms' compositions for the organ
were represented by three Preludes
which were sympathetically interpreted by WaUace GUlman.
Tlie Song of Destiny, usually considered by critics to be Brahms'
crowning achievement in choral
music, WM defectively sung by the
Brahms' choir of over seventy voices.
The conductor, George Coutts fully
realized the posslbUltles of this great
work which concluded a very enjoyable ana instructive program.

Co-ed Cohorts
Cavort Cagily
Judging from temerature and costume at the Co-ed BaU Friday night
at the Auditorium, one might have
supposed that summer was upon us.
In a Zanzibar-like atmosphere co-eds
ln bright sports clothes and their
guests In almost everything made
merry from nine until one. At ten
o'clock the waistcoats, if any, had disappeared, at eleven there were few
coats in right and at twelve ties and
cuff-links were things of the past.
The one snooty soul who turned up
in dinner jacket suffered accordingly.
AU were pleasingly surprised with
the music, and even braved the hills
and valleys beneath the orchestra to
listen at closer range to "0 Monah."
Co-eds cut In from all over the room
after the Intermission while men
stood back against the waU and
thought disparaging thoughts about
the discriminating tastes of women
ln general.
Patrons for the occasion wen:
Chancellor and Mrs. R. E. McKechnie, President and Mrs. L. S. Klinck,
Dean and Mrs. Daniel Buchanan,
Dean and Mrs. F. M. Clement, Acting-Dean and Mrs. J. M. Turnbull,
Dean Bollert and Mrs. R. W. Brock.
Gordon Stead, popular Musical $o*
city executive member who intends
to run in the presidential elections.
At present it is not known whether
his nomination will be accepted.
A final chance to obtain a reduced
ticket admission to see the Tilden
exhibition at the Horseahow Building
is to be given to the first fifteen students applying to Reg. Price today.

Collins, Owen, Sinclair, Stead to Contest
Proxy's Job For Next Session
The first rumblings have been heard, the preliminary shots
have been fired, the first fruits are ripening; other suitable
metaphors may be inserted here for the purpose of opening the
first story on elections for this year.
Arts, Science, and Commerce, will all be represented in
the coming tussle, which will come to a climax a week today
exactly. Other officers will then be in the running, and suoh
appointments as editor-in-chief will be made immediately fol
lowing the presidential results
The Arts candidate for the post of
head man in 1933-1934 is MUt Owen.
He has a year's Council experience
behind him, having acted in the capacity of Junior Member during the
past session. If successfully shepherding a freshman class through Its
first turbulent term, managing jobs
small and large with unperturable
tact and playing two nationalities of
rugby, can be called qualifications,
the Arts '34 man has plenty.
Experience on CouncU, however, is
not limited to this candidate. Mark
CoUlns, Commerce '34, has served as
huabatider of the Alma Mater Society funds for two years, (with what
success the surplus last year should
show forth) as well as being a stay
on the Canadian Rugby squad for
the same length of time.
Oeorge Sinclair is Science's candidate in the Big Battle.     Besides
working on S.M.U.S. for two yean,
he served on the Stadium Investigation Committee which recently completed exhaustive research Into the
question of stadium funds, and has
been connected with track "with
varying success," as he puts it, ever
since his arrival at U.B.C.
Oordon Stead announced late yesterday afternoon that he would alao
run for the position. Stead has been
prominent In Musical Society circles
for the last three years. He was
recently elected president of the
Combined Classes of '33, and heads
the Commerce Men's Undergraduate
Clab. He is an instructor in Accounting I, and plays second division
English Rugby.
Further nominations wiU be received until five o'clock today ,says
Rosemary Winslow, Secretary of the
Alma Mater Society.
Dr. Robertson To
Address V. C. U.
On Wednesday In Arte 204 at 12:10
the regular meeting of the V.C.U.
will be addressed by Dr. W. M. Robertson, minister of the large Metropolitan Tabernacle of this city. His
subject will be "The Bible—the Book
that Bites." All students are cordially invited to come and hear Dr.
Robertson portray this very interesting subject in his usual forceful and
eloquent manner.
Big Waiver Campaign Starts
Today: Drive Object $1,400
Fourteen hundred dollars is the objective set for a one-day
Stadium Campaign which gets under way today under the direction of Ruth Witbeck, Rosemary Winslow, and Milton Owen.
The money is needed to augment the present Stadium Trust
Fund of $1000. If any measure pi success is achieved students
will be assured of a serviceable playing field instead of the
present morass. It is hoped to be able to put into effect the recommendations of Eric Lazenby and Phil Barratt who recently
conducted a survey of the stadium site with a view to suggesting
improvements in the drainage system. The recent Stadium Investigation Committee also made a suggestion which it is hoped wiU be carried put
• The Big Block Club is co-operating with the committee in charge, and
will have tables placed at strategic positions throughout the campus as the
Caution Money campaign gets under way today.
Plana for an Intensive tour of the Library have had to be abandoned,
and as a result the Cafeteria witi be more intensively canvassed during the
Big tags which can be seen from two hundred yards wiU decorate those
who answer the caU.
AU students are urged to co-operate with the committee ln charge In
order to make It possible to have a useful stadium In the future.

subject "Resolved that the power of
the Press be limited, in the interests

Jack Fisher will lead the affirmative.

Rehearsals are being caUed constantly aa tiie zero hotir for tho first
performance approaches, and all
committees are working top-spOed
putting the finishing touches to
weeks of work.
Costume changes are proving particularly fractious as only the shortest time can be allowed. It is oven
rumoured that some of the members
of the cast wtil have to do a quick-
change right on the stage.
Scenery wUl be the most lavish
the club has provided for some years,
and this is quite an assertion to
make about a club that has been
noted for Its scenery for some thirteen years, The quiet refined atmosphere of the bolt of old English
homes wiU bo reproduced on stage
with the beautiful furniture which
the Players' Club always succeeds
In obtaining.' Both the rir__Mr*«_T
aet, and tiie fuU sized University
stage set, wtil represent the lustrous
walnut panelling so common In the
better English homes.
Members of the cast claim that it
is becoming increasingly difficult to
maintain the sanctity of the secret
as to who murdered Sir WUUam Talbot. One thing is certain, members
of the student body are particularly
anxious to find out who did the dastardly deed.
The author certainly does not give
the audience much help in this respect for It requires a particularly
active brain to pick out the authentic clues from the welter of lies and
petty deceits that is put forth by the
various memben of the cast In order
to shelter tho supposed murderer.
Even the great Poirot (Bill Sargent)
has his work cut out for him to put
his finger on the essential point that
points definitely towards one person.
The performances in North Vancouver and New Westminster wiU round
off the rough edges and aUow the
cast to present another finished performance for the delectation of Vancouver audiences,
The typo of play chosen thig year
is another innovation as far as the
club is concerned—comedies, farces,
tragedies, and problem plays have all
been attempted successfully, but this

Students Granted
Tourist Privilege
Through the generosity of the
Confederation Internationale d e a
Etudlanta (the CUE.), Canadian students have been extended the privilege of the use of the CLE. Student
Identity Card, even though tho N.F.
C.U.S. is not a member of tho CLE.
As its name Implies this card is intended primarily tp serve aa a means
of identification—to proclaim to anyone concerned that the bearer is a
bona fide student of a recognized
Canadian university with membership in the National Federation of
Canadian University Students and is
therefore entitled to the prlvUeges
offered to holders of the card.
These cards were originated several yean ago and are well known

Wth the announcement that four candidates will contest the election of President ol
the Alma Mater Society, the Ubjrssey wishes te
advise all studentg, not only to vote, but to vote
according to the courage of their convictions.
In previous years the vote has been surprisingly low, and we urge that every student
turn out and cast his ballot on next Tuesday.
After all it only requires a Uttle time to walk
up two flights of stairs and sign an X in the
required place.
It is to be hoped that candidates will remember the dictum of last year's Council concerning campaign advertising. They decided
that all advertising during the elections must
be student work, and unpaid. The necessity of
tfcis step ia obvious to any thinking student
who observed last year's array of signs done by
professional sign painters.
Freshmen particularly are urged to go to
campaign meetings and decide for themselves
the respective merits of the different candidates. As far as possible all students must discount speaking ability, except in so far as it is
a qualification for the position of president.
Once again the Ubyssey confirms its policy
of absolute impartiality as far as the individual
candidates are concerned. The platforms of all
four candidates will be published next Friday.
Any breach of etiquette during elections,
either by fraternities or individuals will be
severely censured in these columns.
The absence of Spring weather does not preclude the possibility of April examinations.
Students are hereby given warning that examinations are now a scant six weeks away,
and it behoves them to devote a little more time
than usual to their studies.
Third and fourth year students are urged
also, to remember that no Christmas tests were
..given to establish an interim grade, with the
result that a detailed knowledge of the whole
course is expected and will be demanded. The
faculty have repeatedly stated that the standard must not be lowered.
Two news items in this and the last issue
have demonstrated the fact that college activities may be of considerable use in the afterlife. Robert Keyserling has definitely arrived
in a profession which he started to practice during his college days, and Garrett Livingstone
has achieved renown in the field of histrionics,
which field he first started to turn to during
his Players' Club days.
We have always maintained that extracurricular activities, while undoubtedly a hindrance to the true scholastic deal, are certainly
a help in gaining experience in fields which may
afterwards yield material gains.
The problem of course, is to achieve a suitable balance so that the maximum of benefit
is obtained from each aspect of a university
education. That of course is an individual's
problem and should be determined by his mental ability and the value he places on whatever
benefits which may accrue from scholastic or
extra-curricular activities.
Ry Arthur Mayn
What am I doing here? It's a long story, but
I'll cut it short! Lukie has taken my little
Peter-ape (I hope he behaves himself!) while I,
my large feet crowded into her shoes, scamper
down the beat with the columnistic torch borne
aloft. In case this metaphor proves too abstruse for you, we have traded columns for
the week, with a tacit agreement to toss all the
monkey-wrenches we can into each other's machinery.
Have a good time, Lukie—I know you will,
because there are three trouble-calls due, and
the Apes drawer is in a fascinating megs. Meanwhile, leaving you and Peter to wander out
hand in hand in quegt of ths elusive Muse, I
shall get down to business.
It's come again, and in two weeks the campus will be fairly reeking with it. Spring, I
mean, that season when the varsity foreat (?)
blossoms like the rose, and the chief sound
heard in lectures is the blowing of the nose.
Sorry, I got away from myself there. But
spring does affect people foolishly; in my case
it evinces itself In a craving to panic the natives
by roller-skating on Marine Drive and the
roads adjacent. From the end of the bridge
(the one where a chubby hand directs the California tourist to the confines of U.B.C.) is a
beautiful stretch of hill, almost a mile of
smooth pavement, with a sharp curve of two
for excitement, and no more traffic than a few
redskins mushing in to their wilderness trap-
That ia how Spring fever touches me.
Others in great numbers tell me that they
yearn to execute a Spring-dance among the
towering giants of the forest mentioned above.
I have passed this idea on to the proper authorities, and the Pep Clubbers, who now have
the matter in hand, hint that they may lead an
organized Spring-dance with appropriate music.
This for the aesthetically inclined: personally,
I'd much rather roller-akate.
Spring leada to summer, and with summer
comes the question of employment for those
long months between April and October. I don't
like work, but as I like my present state of
penury a great deal less, I'm gunning for a job.
You too, and no luck either? Glad to find that
I have comrades in adversity!
I'm not worrying overmuch though, and I
don't suppose you are. Things have an odd way
of breaking right—and that isn't mere senseless
optimism. Keep cool and happy-go-lucky, rush
in where angels wear snowshoes, and cultivate
a brazen exterior to all rebuffs. Maybe you
won't land anything, but you'll have tried, at
One more comment on the subject, a cynical one this time. Bad conditions have changed things. When I was a little boy and didn't do
my arithmetic, the reproof was: "Young man,
you'll end up digging ditches." It seemed a horrible thought then, but now—find me a ditch
and let me at it!
From the Daily Province of Saturday,
March 4, it would seem that the University of
Alberta has landed up to the ears in trouble. A
damage suit has been launched against that
college by a father who claims that his son's
mind was unbalanced as a result of the September freshman initiations. It's nasty business,
one that will not add to the rather precarious
status of western colleges.
Students' Council here deserve praise for
their farsightedness in banning extreme forms
of initiation. The effect of hazing may be negligible on the average student; but there is always an uncertain—and therefore dangerous
—quantity to be reckoned with in such affairs.
Witness the Alberta mess.
Although a good deal can be said for hazing, much more can be said against it. So I for
one am heartily glad that the old-style initiation is to be an outworn tradition as far as
we are concerned.
Peter, seeing me making heavy weather of
it, sneaks in with this story. I won't vouch for
it, but if it's true, a certain much-discussed
Cabinet Minister of Victoria isn't such a bad
sport after all:
The young man was coming to Varsity in the
fall, and was full of premature college spirit.
He gave his views to anyone on the boat who
would listen to him, and his verbal pictures of
the Island potentate made Simon Legree a
piker by comparison.
A red-cheeked, pleasant old gentleman
heard his tale—drew him out to bigger and
better execrations, then, smiling, slipped a card
into his hand. No, he wasn't Santa Claus. He
was—you've guessed it!

taring to tho travriler. Taking advantage of this fact, the various national student organizations ln England and on tho continent negotiated with raUwaya, airway and
steamship companies, hotels, theatres,
museums, Immigration authorities and
many othen, and have obtained from
them reduced rates and special privileges for holders of the CUE. Identity Card.
The card is looked upon alao as a
valuable complement to the regular
passport because, In identifying the
bearer as a student travelling presumably In the interests of his education, it rules out the necessity for
strict examinations by customs officials.
At present Canada unfortunately
has no special privileges to offer to
students travelling within her boundaries, and therefore these cards are
obviously of use only to those intending to cross over to the British
Isles or Europe.
Full Information regarding the advantages offered by these cards and
regarding the procedure necessary in
procuring one may be obtained from
the Travel Secretary of the N.F.C.
U.S.—A. Oordon Burns, University of
Toronto. The C.IJG. charges a fee
of one dollar for each card.

Why do you stay
So long away?
It's ln your power, why make me
Say you'll enfold me,

I've built my dreams all around
Only you can make them true.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
With the approach of graduation
day the realization is brought home
more strongly of how reaUy happy
my years at tiie University have been,
I have come to realize how much I
value the associations of learned professors and good books through the
medium of lectures and pleasant
hours ln the Library. They have
aided me In my search for culture.
I feel that I must thank the University which has made possible those
many benefits and hope that others
who foUow may profit from them
as I have. Hoping that you may
find room in your correspondence
column for these sentiments of an
old Senior, I am,
Yours truly,

Noted U.B.C. grads are much in
the pubUc eye lately, for Garrett
Livingstone, Arts '24, has been spend-
big a few days in Vancouver, having
motored up from HoUywood to renew old friendships hi his native city.
The son of the late Stuart Livingstone, barrister, he wu one of U.B.
C.'s best track men, and held several records during his coUege days.
He waa also well known for his association with the Players* Club.
In tho Revival of Sir Arthur Pineiro's comedy of sentiment, "Sweet
Lavender" hi 1921, he shared with
Art Lord tho male honors In that
charming old play.
Since graduation he has spent two
yean at Oxford as Rhodes Scholar,
treveUed by motor over Europe, -and
learned the bond business In New
York. His old friends feci that

Four debating tours and one national ndlo debate will bo sponsored
next session by the National Federation of Canadian University Students
if present plans of Its off icon work

On the invitation of the National
Union of Students of England and
Wales, an NJ.C.U.S. team wiU tour
Gnat Britain this faU. Canada's
team wUl be composed of one Maritime and one Western Canadian atudent This wtil be the second NJP.
C.U.S. debating team to visit England—the first in 1922, wu chosen
from Toronto and McGUl. The other
tour outride of Canada wiU also take
place In the faU of 1933, if suitable
arrangements can be made. It wiU
be a tour of northwestern United
States by a Western Canadian team.
Something in the nature of an experiment will be tried in the fall
within Canada. The officers of the
N.F.C.U.S. are hoping to arrange a
tour of Ontario and the three prairie
provinces by a French-speaking team
from the University of Montreal. The
fourth debating tour of the session
wUl take place ln the spring of 1934,
when either an Australian team or
one from Bates CoUege, Maine, wiU
tour Canada from coast to coast.
Another experiment Is likely to be
tried sometime during the session—a
national radio debate under the auspices of the Canadian Radio Broadcasting Commission. If it is held, the
four debaters wUl be chosen from
the Marltlmes, Central Canada, the
Prairie Universities and British Columbia respectively.
In the last period Varrity commenced their much-belated attack
on tho Meraloma lino, and won successful In completing a forward pass
from Rush to Ridland which resulted
ih a touchdown for U.B.C. which
went unconverted. The final whistle
left the scon at 9-6 for Memlemu.
On the whole the Varsity aggregation seemed to have benefited from
their defeat of last week, u their
linesmen wen much faster, thulr
secondary line quicker, but their
ends were stiU slow In getting down
on tho punts. The Meralomas proved
to be a squad of fast runnen, and
possessed an extremely strong lino.
Lineup:   Hidden, Rader,   Ridland,
Moffat, Mather, SneUing,  Symonds,
Mortimer, Crysdale, Anderson, Mar

the score 3-1 against them, the Varrity boys continued to force the
pace, with the Todd brothers, back
together on the left wing, bearing
the brunt of the attack. However,
hard work by Hannah, Garriock and
Pamphlet kept the Blue and Gold
forwards at bay, and the game finished with the score still at 3-1.
Pete Frattinger, Varsity custodian,

making a number of sensational
saves, and handling the ball cleanly

Vanity Makes it Two Straight In Play-off
Series—Beat Sparlings 26-24 Thursday
Ken Wright Stars With One Handed Shots—
Matthison Fast—U.B.C. Defence Strong
Varsity made it two up. and three
to go with two victories over the
Sparlings team at V.A.C. Thursday
and Saturday. Both games were won
by two point margins, the Thursday
score being 26-24 and the Saturday
taUy 21-19. The basketball played
was the real play-off brand, with
hard checking and cautious play the
Varrity was slow to start In the
first game, and Sparlings led by substantial margins through most of the
first half. Just as the half-time
whistle went, tiie Blue and Gold
pulled up to 9-13, the closest they
had come since the start. In the second half, however, they quickly
wiped out the deficit, and led Sparlings to the finish. The final score
of 26-24 marks the closeness ot the
Scoring Slow In Second Game
The CoUeglani were again slow to
start hi the second contest, and it
was only Ken Wright's three one-
handed baskets that kept Varrity in
the running. Although weak on the
attack, Varrity was strong on defence, and held the Sparlings score
down to reasonable proportions.
Purves scored a foul and Kennington a basket before Ken Wright
scored the first Blue and Gold basket on an individual effort. Purves
snared a rebound, but Ken scored
another pretty basket and then tal-
Ued again to give Varsity a one-
point lsad. Nicholson scored a foul
but Purvis and Smith scored to send
Sparlings ahead again. Campbell tied
the score again, but Purves again
grabbed a rebound to put the Store
men ahead 11-9 as the half ended.
Varsity's combination was weak in
this half, while when the forwards
did work In under the basket, they
missed their chances. Sparlings' lead
was largely due to "Long John"
Purves, who scored seven of their
eleven points. Most of his baskets
were from rebounds.
Score Quickly Tied
CampbeU lost no time in squaring
things in the second half, as he drifted through for a nice solo score.
Kennington regained the lead, but
Matthison wiped it out again. Then
Nicholson grabbed a rebound after
^"Hooker" Wright had missed two
fouls to again put Varrity on top.
Although Kennington tied things up
again shortly after, the Storemen
were never in the lead again.
Ken Wright once more put Varsity
on top with a basket, but Eddie
Armstrong cut the margin to one
point with a foul. With tiie score at
17-16, play ranged from end to end
without either team tallying for several minutes. During this tittle, Rann
Matthison missed his first foul shot
of the year. However, he dropped in
two of these shots shortly after to
give the Blue and Gold a three-
point margin at 19-16. "Hooker"
Wright dropped ln another basket
to give Varsity a five point lead with
a minute to play,
Mclntyre aad Campbell Tangle
As the teams ran back for the tip-
off, Mclntyre Sparling captain, and
Pi Campbell indulged in brief fistic
encounter which began With Mclntyre tearing Into Campbell and ended
with players and' referee separating
the two before Campbell could retaliate. Both were given a foul each,
both missing, and then they credited
from the garni.
In the remaining minute, Purves
scored on another rebound, and Kennington dropped in _ foul to cut the
Varrity margin to two points as tiie
game ended.
The first game was featured by the
fact that each Varsity player on the
floor figured in the scoring. In Saturday's game, however, neither Osborne nor Bardsley came through
with any points. Ken Wright topped
the scorers in both games With six
points Thursday and ten Saturday.
The teams: Varsity — Osborne,
Campbell (4), Nicholson (3), K.
Wright (10), Bardriey, Matthison (4),
D. Wright.

be lots of excitement
Varsity Senior City gridders took
it on the chin from the Meralomas,
when they were handed a 9-6 beating Saturday at the Varsity stadium.
In the first quarter Varrity took
the offensive and pressed the Orange
and Black gridmen far back into
their own territory. It was whUe
they were in this position that Varsity scored a rouge for one point,
leaving the count 1-0 for U.B.C.
lh the second period Meralomau
retaliated by scoring a rouge on
Ridland to tie the score at one-nil.

Senior Soccer
Boys Lose To
North Shore
In a clean, closely-contested game
at McBride Park Saturday afternoon,
North Shore United preserved their
unbeaten record as they triumphed
3-1 over Varsity's Senior Soccer team
in a first-round Imperial Cup contest.
Although beaten, Varsity put up a
fine fight against the North Shore
eleven, and were unfortunate on a
number of occasions in not adding to
their score. Frattinger in the Blue
and Gold net, was outstanding on the
loser's ride, but each player turned
in a creditable performance, while
the combination of the forward line
was of a much higher order than in
previous games.
Play in the first half was fairly
even, although North Shore had the
edge, and led by two goals to nil,
at the interval. The teams alternated in attacking anil defending for
the first fifteen minutes, until the
speedly Lanyon broke clear on the
right wing and centered for McNichol to score with a hard drive through
the corner. Frattinger had no chance
to make a save.
Shortly after, the Varsity custodian was forced to dive across the
goal-mouth to bring off a brilUant
clearance from a hard cross-shot by
Henderson. This went for a corner
which was successfuUy cleared. Varsity returned to the other end, and
Wolfe fired in a long drive from
thirty yards out. The Redshirts'
goaUe Just managed to reach the ball
and tip It over the bar for a corner.
Play shifted to the Varsity goal
area, and by a rather lucky chance,
the North Shore centre-forward,
Dempsey, found himself unmarked
with the baU directly in front of the
Varrity net. Again Frattinger had
no chance with the shot, and ihe
Redshirts were two up.
The score remained unchanged
until fifteen minute! of the second
half had been played. Then Henderson, North Shore inside man, fas-
tended on the ban at the edge of the
penalty area, and drove it into the

With the score of the Sparling-
Varsity series standing at two up
and three to go for Varsity, one
harks back to a similar time two
years ago when the Blue and Gold
cagers held a two games to nil lead
over the Adanacs. One wonders i-
the Storemen can accomplish what
the Adanacs did—prolong the series
to the full five games. Or will they
do more, and take the last three
games and the title?

However, oh Thursday's and Saturday's form, Varrity should be able to
ack that vital third game out of the
re. Although both teams showed a
tendency to miss chances during the
two games already played, Varsity
seems better able to get points when
they count In both contests, they
ware down at half-time, but came
back to make the grade In the second it-Ma.

A feature of Thursday's game was
the fact that every Blue and Gold
player on the floor figured in the
scoring. This contrasts with Saturday eyening, when two of the teartis
best scorers failed to tally. Perhaps

Last Wednesday the University authorities approached the
Burrard League basketball executive and requested that some
of the play-off games be staged at the U. B. C. gymnasium.
Since that time, the whole question has become so involved,
hnd presents such a tangled mass of claims and counter-claims,
that everyone seems completely befuddled regarding the final
Meanwhile, Varsity has come in for a considerable amount
of unmerited criticism by the general outside public, For the
information of all those interested, a resume of the facts to date
are printed below.
To assure the Burrard League a better chance of success,
the Varsity team agreed to play all their fall-scheduled home
games at the V. A. C. Gymn, upon the understanding that after
the League had been put on its feet, Varsity could transfer at
least some of their home games to the U. B. C. Gymn.
When the Student authorities approached the League executive to this effect after Christmas, they were informed that
the schedule had already been drawn up on the previous basis.
It so happens that, although it is now completed, this schedule
has never been passed by the League executive. Despite the
fact that the Students offered a long series of protests throughout
the seaoson, these protests were ignored and nothing was ever
done by the executive.
On top of all this, the League authorities last week refused
to give Varsity any play-off games in their own gymn. the fact
that Sparlings had never played out here was given as the reason, although the fact that Sparlings were challenging Varsity,
and that Varsity did not practice on the V. A. C. floor were
apparently forgotten.
The outcome of this state of affairs was the formation of an
Appeal Committee, tiie decision of which both the League and
Varsity agreed to accept. When this Committee decided to
award Varsity one game, the League executive decided to
ignore their promise to abide by the decision, and stated that
all games must be played at V. A. C.
In the past three days, meetings have been held, accusations have been made, and conflicting statements have been issued but up to the time of going to press, no definite conclusion
has been reached.
Such petty squabbling and indecision is certainly to be
deplored. Varsity should learn from this year's experience that
it does not pay to be too magnanimous, and that the only way to
be absolutely certain that promises will be kept is to have such
promises in writing.

Clash Tonight
There is going to be plenty of excitement to night, when Varsity
meets Sparlings in the third game of
the Burrard league playoffs. Varsity has won two games of the playoffs and a win tonight means the
The boys are about due to dick
this evening. The last two games they
have been playing good basketball
but they haven't seemed to reaUy
get going, and if they once turn on
the heat tonight there should be no
doubt as to thi outcome.
Usual Lineup
The usual line-up wtil take the
floor first. Osborne and CampbeU,
guards, Nicholson at centre, and Ken
Wright and Bardsley forwards, Osborne and Campbell are certainly a
smart combination at guard. "Olson"
is a man who can always be relied
upon to turn In a good game at centre, while "Hooker" and "Snorf" are
two of the hardest workers on the
Matthison, the man who usually
goes in for Bardsley or Wright, is
one of the fastest men in the whole
league. Rann usually seems to be
able to think fast enough to know
just what the other man will do before he does it. Dick Wright is certainly playing a good brand of ball,
despite the fact that he doesn't get
on the floor a great deal.
Tom Mansfield is another who, although he doesn't get on the floor
very often, has proved his worth at
getting rebounds.
Up to the time of going to press
no word has come in about where
tonight's game will take place, but
full notice will be given on the notice boards, today at noon.
In the second league game of the
season, playing a half-back short,
the U.B.C. Grass-Hockey team surpassed themselves to win from Ex-
Kits 5-3.
The game opened with a swift attack by Ex-Kits resulting In an easy
goal for them. After a determined

the experience and weight of Vancouver Rowing Club's veteran oars,
losing by two lengths the feature
race of the University Boat Club's
annual Crew Day at Coal Harbour
on Saturday afternoon.
The college crew included four
maiden oars and rowed the South
station of the standard Henley
'course of 1 mile, 900 yards. At the
start they gained a length on their
opponents but a slight unsteadiness
caused them to ship water on the
choppy sea and the city club's boat
soon overtook them and was four
lenths in the lead at the half way
mark. At this point Pratt, the University stroke, started his crow in
a sprint which was Valiantly maintained until the end, when only a
length of open water separated the
Tbe style of the Varrity crew, considering it Included four men who
had never rowed a race before, did
credit to their coach, Prof. Wept.
Thc other events of the afternoon
took the form of a regatta between
the members of the Boat Club and
was started by n tub sculling race
ln which Rear beat KUlam by half
a length.
The Novice IV's included three
crews and was run off in two heats
over the three-quarter mUe course.
The boat stroked by Anderton won
easily from Mcintosh's crew In the
first and came baric to win from
Clayton's by a length and a half on
the final heat. The form was aa
good as could be expected from thia
class of oars but the bow men
seemed to have considerable difficulty in steering a straight course.
The crews gained racing experience,
however, which should prove of value In the future.
Pratt and deMttle, who have won
fame both locally and at the last
Olympic games as a double sculling
combination, opposed each other in
a polished exhibition of their code
of oarmanship, in a so-called 'grudge'
race with Brown and Alias as their
respective bow men. Brown and
Pratt led by a length and a quarter
at the finish.
The most exciting finish of the dsy
was provided in the Tackwelght IV
event when Grubbe'a crew, while
only a few yards from the finish,
spurted from a position a length behind Lane's boat to snatch tiie victory by a canvas. Both crews rowed
in pleasing* style over the whole of
the three-quarter mile course. Unfortunately, one man in each -oat
lost the use of his sliding seat and
so waa forced to Sit on the runners
for entire race.
The Inter-faculty IV's, which had
been keenly anticipated, had to be
postponed due to a lack of time.
Both wind and water were favorable during the afternoon until the
VIII's took to the water when a
breeze sprang up and the sea became
quite choppy by the time the race
