A strong suspicion that Jack Emerson and his eleven-piece band might
be on hand to grace today's noon-
hour pep-meeting was voiced recently by members of that electric organization, the Pep Club. Mr. Em-
j erson's presence is calculated to further the attractiveness of the noon-
hour sing and shout session, which
will this time be dedicated to the interests of the Basketball Club.
Champion Team
In the past. Vai.-ity has l;een known
to produce great basketball squads,
both nun's anci women'.; and this
year, there are In pes that yet another
champion team will be built up. Thc
boys will be on view on Friday, together with ineir coaches and captains .to inform you. among other
things, that their first league game of
the year is slated for one week tomorrow. So come, all ye faithful, sit
at leisure in the Auditorium today
at noon, and be royally entertained
by Messrs. the Pep Club, the Basketball squad, and Emerson.

"Union College, a landmark to travellers or. the Gulf of Georgia should

voyaging across the sea of life"—with
this metaphor Hon. T. D. Patullo,
premier of B.C., officially and formally opened on Wednesday afternoon
the Library Tower of Union College.
Spiritual Renaissance
He continued to say how this world,
hood-winked by materialism, needed
a "Spiritual Renaissance." He contended that th.» stupendous task of
fulfilling this need was a challenge
in itself to the theology of today. Yet
Union College hati accepted this challenge—she had built a beautiful edi-
face, to train young men to lead a
sick world into a spiritual atmosphere.
"Gift" Accepted
At the close of the opening hymn,
Brig. General V. W. Odium of the
Building Committee, presented the
new addition to the Board of Governors. Ex-maycr Malkin, Chairman
of the Board of Governors, then in
accepting the "Gift," remarked on the
fact that the building though unfinished,   was  free  from  obligations.
Principal Brown of Union College,
next spoke emphatically of how the
college was an integeral part of the
University, and how it endeavored
to train British Columbian youths
from British Columbain homes alongside of students in other Faculties,
for the purpose of teaching British
Columbk ns in the future.

Balance Of Power
A Harmful System
i ^~~~■■■
"The Nature of British Foreign
Policy" was the subject of a paper
read by Mr. A. J. Johnson before the
Historical Society on Thursday evening, at the home of Mrs. W. N. Sage.
The "old" diplomacy — before the
World War was based on "the continental system of the balance of
power," declared the speaker, by
way of introducing his paper. This
system "had considerable merits but
its evils were immeasurably greater."
The very fact that nations armed
themselves, in preparation for war.
rather than disarmed, in the interests
of peace, endangerd European relations from the beginning.
Failure of Pre-war System
The fatal defect of the old system
was   exposed   by   Mr.
"The fraternities and sororities on the campus could dtf a
great deal in welding the student body into one complete group"
declared Bill .Whimster, A.M.S. president in 1932-33, addressing the semi-annual Alma Mater meeting Wednesday noon.
"It has been suggested,"  said Mr.A
Whimster, "that fraternities and sor-    FORMER  PRESIDENT  OF
orities   tend  to   undermine   student A, M. S.
spirit, and I am inclined to agree.
These organizations should put the
university first and themselves second."
The speaker drew the attention of
the students to the fact that-.they
alone make up the Alma Mater Society and that any progress in student
government must be made by students when they are going through the
Powerful Students Council
"Few students here realize the
power which their students' council
has. I have visited the four western
universities in Canada and several in
the Pacific northwest, but nowhere
has a students' council anything like
the power of the U.B.C. council. For
example, this council can expel a
student without stating any reason."
Tangible Spirit
Whimster told his listeners of the
"good old days" when, during a campaign, every available inch of space
in the auditorium was packed at
A.M.S. meetings, and when university
spirit was "a tangible thing, which
used to leap up at us over the footlights."
"If the students will take an inter
est in their affairs, and will tell the
students' council when and where they
are wrong," he said in concluding,
"we will have a real student spirit,
and a real student body."    -
Scienceman Max Legg, almost unrecognizable without his pipe, preceded
Whimster on the platform, bewailing
the lack of spirit in the university,
and the lack of campus custom and
Dying Faculties
"A university «,lmosphere should be
created by the students that come
year after year," Legg said, "but
seven years ago the faculty of Applied Science was dying. Now it is
dead, and a few steps farther on lies
the grave of Arts."
Legg finished with a plea to the
students of to-day to lay now a cornerstone of tradition and custom.
Council Policies Approved
The council policies for the coming
year were approved without discussion.    Murray  Mather  thanked   the

The second lecture of the eighteenth session of the Vancouver Institute will be held in the Auditorium
of the University of British Columbia
on Saturday evening, at 8:15. The
speaker will be Mr. G. G. McGeer.
K.C., M.L.A., and the subject, "A
Criticism of the So-called Sound
Money System.''
Changes Necessary
Mr. McGeer is one of the most
forceful and picturesque figures in
the public life of British Columbia. It
is well known that in the course of
recent years he has reached very positive conclusions on the nntional and
international economic organization.
Among these is his belief that the
whole fabric of money and credit,
upon which finance, industry an*
business are based, is outworn and
ineffective, and in need of complete
reorganization. In recent months he
has delivered many addresses on this
topic and on Saturday evening will
attempt a reasoned statement as to
the inconsistencies and failures of
the money system of Canada, will
set forth the conditions which a sound
money system should meet, and indicate the steps by which the necessary changes may be made with a
minimum of dis'rtibance and dislocation.
Interesting Subject
In view of the widespread interest
in the subject itself, of tho views that
will be presented, and of the forceful personality of the speaker, the
Auditorium should be crowded to
capacity on Saturday evening to hear

Some of the students are apparently unaware of the existence of the letter racks in
the Arts Building, or else they are too modest
to believe that anyone would ever stoop 30 low
as to write them a letter, or even scribble a
note to them on a scrap of paper.
In any case, the fact is that there are numerous letters and notes lying in the racks which
have not been called for since they were
placed there. These may include letters that
have come through the mail as well as notes
addressed from one individual or organization
to another on the campus, and it is therefore
important to everybody to visit the rack at
regular intervals.
The letter racks are a convenient means of
communicating with any student on the campus who cannot be reached otherwise. If you
are one of the freshmen or freshettes who have
not yet visited this "campus post office," you
will locate it in the corridor at the men's end
or the women's end respectively of the Arts
Building. And who knows what delightful
surprise may be awaiting you there?
On Friday last we published a brief history of the Vancouver Symphony and an account of its present situation. Last year it
failed to meet expenses and the deficit was
made up by contributions, but as this is considered an unsound financial basis the concerts will be discontinued this season unless
the society obtains twelve thousand dollars in
its October drive.
The first symphony association in Vancouver was founded in 1919 and and discontinued
in 1922 due to lack of funds. Will the second
organization meet a similar fate after five suc-
-cessful years?
This appeal should meet with some response
in the University, which after all is the cultural
centre of the province. Many students are
already symphony enthusiasts by virtue of a
natural love of music, but most of us, leading
a rather hectic existence between curricular
and extra-curricular activities, prefer our recreation in a less intellectual form, and the
haranguing of older people who deplore our
lack of musical appreciation becomes a little
In time, however, our diversions of today
will cease to interest us, and we must turn to
other fields for our enjoyment. By cultivating
now an appreciation of good music we acquire,
after a little preliminary boredom, an unlimited capacity for entertainment, and in pulling
ourselves out of our cultural inertia we may
help to pull one of the best symphony orchestras in Canada out of a financial hole.
It is the acknowledged right of every student on the campus to criticize the Ubyssey.
Few, however, think of the difficulties that the
staff has to contend with before the paper can
be published. Many of these difficulties are
caused by the clubs who wish to publish notices
in the Ubyssey. Perhaps the worst part of the
drudgery in the Publications Office is the typ-,
ing, Yet how many clubs think to type their
reports or notices before handing them into
the office? Often a four-page scrawl on some
meeting that none of the staff attended has to
be given to an overworked assistant to put into
readable form. Can you wonder that the report is condensed or that important details are
left out. and that none of the editors are capable of judging what items each club considers
significent. If the reports aren't typed the
Ubyssey cannot be responsible for the contents.
Also all secretaries of clubs should realize
that the deadline is ten o'clock the morning before the paper comes out. Yet "Class and
Club" notices seldom begin to arrive till twelve

How About Publicity?
The Student's Council, is displaying much
justifiable agitation over the lack of interest
on the part of the students in the conduct of
theii; own government. It might be as well
to ask why the students are apathetic.
There are several good reasons. The students have no direct voice in the conduct of
their own government; they merely elect the
people who attend to their, affairs for them.
These people are nearly all seniors, and as the
students have no opportunity to approve or
disapprove of their conduct at future elections,
they have no incentive to keep closely informed
of their actions.
Little publicity is given to debates and controversial questions arising in the Council.
Nothing is made public as to the stand taken
by various members of the Council on such
questions. No opportunity is given the stu-
rents to form opinion on these questions, or to
express them when formed.
As long as the Council is content to give
us moderately good government in a quiet and
unobtrusive manner, they cannot expect a
great deal of student interest in their doings.
Let Us Stick To Our Own Game
Our athletic solons are in a most uncomfortable position. They are trying to go in for
the American system of college gladiators and
paid coaches, and yet retain the British idea of
playing games for amusement.
In the anamolous position of this University, in Vancouver and not of it, anxious to
develop intercollegiate sport and not equal to
it, interested in athletics but not enthusiastic,
these unfortunate solons are in a tough spot.
It does not appear to have occurred to them
that we are not, and never will be, able to compete with the States in American football. Our
freshmen have not the preliminary training,
and we just don't go in for games with the
deadly seriousness of our southern neighbors
(thank the Lord).
It might also pay them to consider English
rugby. It is becoming more and more popular in U.S. colleges. We know the game. It is
admirably suited to our particular type of
athletic gifts. If we lay our plans now we can
equal and possibly exceed any advances they
make in the training of rugby teams.
Why not let the Yankees come to us for
our competition in our own game? The results of encouraging American football have
not always been fortunate even on its native
Ten Bucks Is Ten Bucks These Days
Speaking of student interest in Alma Mater
affairs, how many have ever realized the implications of the treasurer's report? It really is
The first thing is the absence of some $5000
of our fees from the report, or approximately
three bucks each of our individual contributions. Do you like paying that much for a gymnasium?   How much use do you get out of it?
Second comes the Women's Union Building.
There is nearly $10,000 in the bank-waiting for
us to put it into a social center. How long is
it going to moulder there before we raise the
necessary additional funds and get some value
out of it? Each year we spend almost enough
in hall rent to pay interest on the extra money
we need.
In the athletic department we pay nearly
$650 for the benefit of the Canadian rugbyites.
Its neatest rivals, English rugby and basketball,
cost only two-thirds and half of this, respectively. How does this stack up when compared
with the returns we get in moral and physical
benefits? These figures, of course, are the
deficits only.
In the other undergrad activities, the most
expensive items were Parliamentary Forum,
$485, Player's Club, $218, and Publications
Board $3250. Whether you bought the Totem
and read the Ubyssey, or not, you paid $2
apiece toward their production. How does that
strike you?
and continue to dribble in till three or even
Even Students Council rarely remember to
send in notices till late in the afternoon, in
addition they generally require space on the
front page of a harrassed senior editor who has
already decided on the page make up.
So if a notice fails to get in or is in some
way maltreated, before you begin slamming
the Ubyssey staff to all and sundry try to remember whether the notice was typed clearly
and sent in on time. The aim of this paper is
to serve the students but it cannot do its best
unless the students serve it.

Dear Sir:
This year, for the second time, the
Alumni Association is carrying forward an activity of some benefit to
the students of the University in the
form of Vocational Guidance Lectures.
Last year these lectures, consisting of
talks on the professions, by various
men prominent in the professional
life of the province, were both enjoyable and instructive.
These talks were promoted by members of the Alumni Association in the
belief the undergraduates could find
something valuable in them, especially at the present time when positions
for both undergraduates and prospective graduates nrv rather few and far
The Alumni are going to some considerable trouble to obtain speakers
of prominence, asking of the students only that they turn out to the
meeting in support of the speakers.
The only responsibility of the undergraduate society In connection with
this activity i.s to see that the meet-
ngs are advertised as fully as possible on the campus.
I have been given the responsibility
of seeing that the students are fully
aware of the time of these meetings.
To this end, 1 am appealing for volunteers to undertake the job of putting out placards advertising these
meetings. There are, surely, on this
campus, two er three men who would
be interested sufficiently in an activity of this kind to undertake two or
three hours work a week In order
that these lectures may obtain the
success they deserve.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Last week, another student and myself visited a night class in Public
Speaking, sponsored by the Vancouver School Board. We were surprised
to recognize at least five U.B.C. graduates in the olasr
The piesence of. these graduates, I
think, was very significant. It seemed
to indicate that University men and
women are conscious of an urgent
need for the ability to speak in public. At present, there is no opportunity for students to learn Public
Speaking within the University. The
Parliamentary Forum functions rather as an outlet foi accomplished orators. There aro obvious advantages
in learning to speak during one's
student days, rather than in the night
school atmosphei:, later.
About 99 percent, of the students
never express their individual opinion at an A.M.S. meeting, mainly because they have not th-a confidence
to address a public meeting. Perhaps
if Council sponsored a Public Speaking class in the University, expression
of student opinion would so be stimulated that "difficulty in obtaining a

Manitoban Trip
Eight university presidents and representatives from all the Canadian
Universities besides the presidents of
two American colleges, gathered In
Winnipeg last veek at the inauguration of Dr. S. £. Smith as President
of the University of Manitoba according to President L. S. Klinck, who
returned from the East Wednesday.
Dr. Smith, who was formerly dean
of the Law School at Dalhousie, succeeds President J. A. MacLean, now
of Victoria, B. C.
One of the main functions in connection with tbe inauguration ceremonies was a dinner to practically
all the public organizations In Winnipeg. Another was a discussion on
Junior Colleges, and the third a meeting at the Civic Auditorium, a magnificent new building built to hold
over 4,000 people, where Dr. Smith
delivered his inaugural address.
President Kllnk indicated how the
four Western provinces would ultilize
the $200,000 Carnegie Grant, it being
understood that each province would
get a grant of $30,000.
Libraries Benefit
Manitoba's share will be directed
to the libraries of the Junior colleges,
their present libraries being inadequate.. Saskatchewan Intends to take
over Regina Colcge and make It a
university at Saskatoon. Alberta's
$50,000 will go into research work
supplies and equipment necessary to
carry out such work,
As for B, C the plan is to distribute the grant into three channels.
A program will be worked out within
the University for extension work to
further adult education. To date such
work has been conducted by voluntary hands under the direction of a
special extension committee headed
by the President, the Deans and Dr.
Todd, the secretary, with an attendance of over 30,000 during the year.
It is felt however, that much more
can be acomplished with financial
Educational Travels
Another part of the grant will be
used to cover i portion of the travelling expenses Incurred by faculty
members who journey to attend educational meetings and conventions
outside the city and province.
The last part will be utilised for
scholarships for graduates who Intend
to carry on work either at U.B.C. or
elsewhere. Under this item would also
come books, apparatus and general
equipment required for post graduate
Prior to leaving for the coast Dr.
Klinck also attended a convention on
musical education. The discussion
was practically confined to the Eastern universities v.liere departments of
music are already established but
neither Alberta nor B. C. can hope
for departments of music for some

ousies and a secret diplomacy." In
the League of Nations, evolved out of
the chaos of tho War, "the balance
of power system was to give place to
a system of international co-operation."
Conflicting Concepts of Covenant
In the contemporary world, British
foreign policy is affected by "the
changing conditions of empire and
imperial defense." The British view
is diametrically opposed to that of
France; whereas the former rests on
the basis "of .i free and universal association of nations which would discuss their difficulties and grievances
openly and freely"—th.) French idea
is derived from the conviction "that
Europe and i.-r.ecially the defeated
powers, can not be 'expected to keen
pence unless th >y are compelled to do
The speaker found the reason for
the crisis that faces the League today
in "the two differing concepts of the
Government, aggravated by the failure of the Disarmament conference
and the re-armament of Germany.'
He thought it unlikely, however, that
Great Britain ,vould abandon Geneva—"She must work out another
basis for her foreign policy which
will take into account the changing
conditions of t'efense, her relations
with the self-governing dominions,
the pogition of the United States, and
the possibilities of a truly effective
collective systo.n in the future."
Future British Policy
Mr. Johnson found manv objections
to the argument for tho return of
British foreign policy ot "splendid isolation": at he same time he thought
that "entering into fresh commitments" with other powers was a poor
alternative suggestion. There would
apear to be more hope for a proposal,
designed to combine "the system
whereby Great Britain prevented
World War from 1815 to 1914, with
the Kellogg Pact"
Radical Poet
Discussed By
Letters Club
"Prom the point of view of the
literati, few of the many poets whose
work belongs to the thirty-odd years
of this century have survived in more
than name. The majority are "stuck
fast In yesterday." Confounded in
each successive aesthetic revolution,
in skirmishes of theory and pitched
battles of intellect, their most cherished ideals devasted by criticism,
they are now, in every literary sense
comfortably dead and decently burled. Among the few survivors, we
find one who, but for the intrinsic
merit of genius and a certain dynamic quality of self-assertion, might
very well have vegetated and grown
rank in erudition years ago—along
with othei medievalists."
Ena Pound
This was Beatrice Cook's introduction in a paper on the poetry of Ezra
Pound before the Letters Club, at the
home of Mrs. John Riddington, Tuesday evening.
After describing Mr. Pound as a
man with "a strong individual, dynamic, fighting personality, more afraid
of convention, of mediocrity and of
cataleptic art than of all the big guns
of criticism," Miss Cook proceeded
to give a short biographical and bibliographical sketch of Mr. Pound up
to the present.
Mr. Pound is first of all and above
all a radical among poets. A defiant
personality, hating the mediocre, hating respectability, crusading against
stagnation, a swashbuckler among
theorists, he made a name for himself in London, among the Imagist
group. His avowed purpose is to
overthrow authority in matters of
aesthetics, to stir the minds of men
and incite them to progress.
Mr. Pound appears obscure for the
simple reason that we have not sufficient intelligence and scholarship
to understand him. Moreover, his
poems may be read as such, without
the reader troubling himself over
much about actual allusions. It is
my belief, declared Miss Cooke, that
there is nothing in his work that cannot be interpreted rationally.
Above all else Mr.' Pound is a master craftsman. He has served a long
apprenticeship in the study of the
world's greatest writers with the result that he both teaches and practises the forgotten art of poetry.
Miss Cooke then discussed the beliefs of Mr. Pound concerning poetry,
illustrating her remarks with quotations from "A few Don'ts for an Imagist" and the "Credo."
The earlier poems ara almost entirely lyrical, vtiy pretty and very
youthful. They display very mark-
edy the influences of Greek orthology,
of the Provincial troubadours, of Villon, of Dante, and of Robert Browning — Pound'': idol among English
poets. The poet shows an interest in
all forms. We must remember his
avowed purpose to attain mastery of
them, declared Miss Cooke.
The content, the manner and the
style of all thsse early poems are reflected in Pound's magnum opus
which we can only designate as "The
Cantos." A work as yet unfinished,
it nevertheless embodies the artistic
consumnation of the poet's career as
a literary craftsman.
I should like very much to impress
upon my audience the fact that the
Cantos are not unduly difficult—that
they posses  both  rhyme and  reason.
In the matter of design which appears to both l.iost people, I believe
there that there if- a relatively simple
solution—In th.' first place they maybe said to reveal the mind and soul
of Mr. Ezra Pound—that inordinately
learned man. Ihtough this man they
illuminate the world of today. For
Pound, this world has lost all sense
of time and space. Only the eternal
and  infinite  rem,'in.
Out of the great void of living —
men's voices .'peak—voices from the
dead nasi. Because there is no time,
all events historical or imaginary are
equally true and are contemporaneous
The countless voices may communicate with one another in polite and
casual conversation. The Cantoes are
like the Iliad, the Odyssy and the Divine Comedy are scrambled together
in terms of the complications of modern life. Tho voice of Pound may be
identified with many of the countless
voices. To really appreciate the Can-
toes, we shou'.-l read all that Mr.
Pound has read, said  Miss Cooke.
Canto XIV gives Dante's visit to
hell. It is a very excellent and com-
prehenshe heil. declared Miss Cooke.
And as regards sheer ugliness far surpasses both Dante and Milton, Everyone is there except one's immediate
friends. Pound sees politicians, profiteers, "the press gang," vice-crusaders, usurers, philolog'sts, the imperialists, lady golfers, fabians, conservatives, British weeklies, etc.
In concluding her paper Miss Cooke
said, "To the poet and critic his greet
mastery of the art of writing is most
significant. Pound's chief contribution to poetry of today and the future
is to be found in this important field
in which he may be called a pioneer
among moderns. He is pre-eminently
a stylist."

And how can man win better

Society was either right behind the

Owing to better financial conditions
this year the annual spring tours of
the Players Club will probably be resumed, and grants to other Literary
and Scientific clubs will be increased.
An aggressive debating policy will be
pursued including numerous inter-
collegiate debates. One of the more
important of these is the encounter
with a combined Oxford and Cambridge team on November 30.
Friday the Big Night
All University social functions will
be held on Friday nights instead of
Thursdays as in the past year, and
will extend from nine to one instead
of from eight to twelve. The Arts-
Aggie ball will continue as one function, and the senior and graduation
balls will also remain combined. No
class parties are to be held in hotels.
All fighting on the campus will be
dealt with with the strictest severity
in future. If the honour system fails,
a system of police control will bt introduced.
Shoddy Gowns
The official town for the Senior
class is to cost 74.00, not $2.30 as was
previously announced, it was decided
today by Stewart Crysdale, after consultation with various authorities.
The cheaper gown was discarded as
positively unsuitable, when a sample
revealed its weaknesses, to wit, poor
workmanship, shiny and heavy cloth,
poor fit, the wrong braid, and general shoddiness. A sample of the approved gown is on display at the Curator's Office, and orders will be received by him starting today. Each
order must be accompanied by $4,00
cash. When two dozen cash orders
have been received, the gowns will
be deliverd on the campus. A limited
number of 100 garments are available
under the special arrangement by
which the cut price has been obtained. All additional orders will be
assessed ^he regular charge. November 17th has been set as the last day
when orders will be taken. A gen-
ral response is anticipated for these
really good gown3 at such a low price
and Seniors are reminded that the
price will be more than made up by
saving in clothing and prospective
sale to next year's Seniors.

Hoopers Swing Into Action Tomorrow At V.A.C.
Hl&rh   School   Trackmen   Down   U.B.C,
Magee And Britannia Combine
To Defeat Varsity 64-44,
Wednesday On Soft Track
McCammon Smashes Shot-put Record
After trailing Varsity for most of the time, the track athletes of Britannia and Magee put on a whirlwind finish to beat
the Thunderbirds quite comfortably in the Varsity-High School
meet Wednesday afternoon. In two events, the high jump and
220-yards hurdles, thes choolboys made a sweep of all three
places while in the 120-yards hurdles and pole vault the best
Varsity could do was to annex third place. It is true that in
retaliation the U.B.C. tracksters garnered seven firsts to the
high schools' five but the flood of second and third places proved
too much, and when Announcer Stu Keate projected his baritone syllables for the last time to the assembled listeners the
score boomed forth as High Schools 68, Varsity 45.
McCammon Sets New Record '   ^~^~~~^~^~~~~~~^~~
Although weather conditions were
perfect, a slow track retarded the
best efforts of the cinder pounders.
Nevertheless Gordie Heron, the Varsity captain, turned in the creditable
time of 23.6 seconds in the 220 yard
dash. In the field events Jim McCammon, the blond sophomore Hercules, added mother win to his already long list of triumphs by shoving the shot put 38 feet, 5 inches to
a new U.B.C. record. Jim also won
the discus throw to tie Gord Heron,
who won the 220 dash and the broad
jump, for individual scoring honours.
In the high jump A Lukas of Britannia cleared the creditable height of
five foot seven and seven eights inches while in thc century dash Perry
of the same school turned the good,
considering th; state of the track,
time of 10.6 seconds.
U.B.C. Starts Well
The Thunderbirds started well after
losing the low hurdles and the 100
yard dash by winning the half mile.
220, shot put, broad jump and mile
run all in a row. The high school
retaliated by sweeping the high jump
but Varsity again brought its total up
close by gaining the dicuss and the
quarter mile. However, the visitors
seemed to have made up their minds
to win and left the students well behind by sweeping the 220 hurdles, in
which Varsity did not have an entry,
and the pole vault. If U.B.C. had
entered more men in the meet to follow up its many firsts the final result would havo been different. In
a final exhibition race Britannia beat
Magee iu a £20 relay.

sport has played away from home this year, and the English
Rugby lads are determined to set a good example for those teams
that will follow them in away games.
Although at present the Island City boys occupy the cellar position in the league, they have been progressing steadily
lately and after their showing last Saturday, they are expected
to give our boys a great battle. Sixteen players, accompanied by
Captain Dobbie as coach, and Ted Madely as manager, leave
Sunday morning for the Island City.
Morris Back
With the absence of Bobbie Gaul
his post as captain will be filled by
Mitchell. With the exception of Morris in the scrum and Whitelaw at full
back, the team will be the same as
was fielded last Saturday. Morris,
out of the game lest week owing to
a slight illness, will be back Sunday,
playing his usual fighting game. The
three-quarter line will also bear
watching this week. Hager, Bird,
Mercer and Andrews working with
Roxborough at five-eights will be a
constant source of trouble to the island boys.
The team lines up as follows: Morris, Griffin, Upward, Pyle, Maguire,
McMullen, Harrison, Gross, Mitchell,
Robson, Roxborough, Mercer, Hager,
Bird, Andrews Lnci Maguire.
This week Varsity welcomed back
to thc team Harry Pearson, one of the
best <erum me i who has performer!
in the city in the past few years.
Pearson has olaycd for Varsity three
years, and has t laved up to now for
Occasionals. Although he will not
make thc trip to Nanaimo this weekend, Pearson viii be hack on the
line-up next week. He is a goo<
tackier and a ,'ireat worke.', and with
his experience lie will be a great asset to the team.

The Golf Club got off to a good
start this year with a match against
the combined juniors of thc Point
Grey and Marine Drive Clubs. Although they came out on the small

lights, Doc Burke's grid team dropped
their third game, this time to North

Team Reported Strong For First  Game
With Dominion Champs
Willoughby Relents And Will Scintillate
Tomorrow On Forward Line
By Clarence Idyll
At last! The event that everyone in Vancouver—and New
Westminster, too, for that matter—has been waiting breathlessly for. The opening of the Senior A basketball loop! At
8 p.m. tomorrow night the hoop sport swings into action as the
new Inter-City Basketball League officially opens with the game
between Adanacs and V.A.C. The Thunderbirds tackle the
Dominion Champion Province team an hour later.
The hoop sport, which was so very popular last with fans
two or three years ago, fell off in the public eye last year due
to the splitting up of the best teams, but is making a very
determined come-back this season with a brand new loop, and
a set of new rules, the effect of which are to speed up the game.
All the strongest and fastest teams in British Columbia have
combined in the new Inter-City league to give the fans the best
basketball to be seen in the Dominion.
Four Dominion Champs
The present Canadian champions
Province, and three other former Can
adian champion squads, Varsity, Adanacs and Blue Ribbons, are connected with the league. The first three
named will play a regular schedule
of games while the Victoria team will
pay several more or less exhibition
games. The other two teams in the
league are V.A.C, coached by Bob
Osborne, captain of the Varsity team
last  year,  and  MacKenzie-Fraser

Varsity Confident
The Thunderbirds will enter the
game tomorrow determined to take
the newsmen to the cleaners, and
confident that they can do it. Although hampered by the It ck of practice due to the gym being unavailable
at the start of the year, the team has
begun to shape well under the coaching of Jack Barbaric
"O course, as a team they will
look a great cic.il better a couple of
weeks fiom now." stated Mr. Barbaric "but I think that they have an
excellent thane: of beating Province
Saturday. Province are very strong
this year, and they have an excellent
team, but Varsitv i: beginning to look
good too.    It will be a good battle."
The team's chances were <rreatlv
enhanced Tuesday by the announcement of Art Willoughby that he
would play tho hoop sport. Up to
this time Art had steadfastly averred
that he would pb.y Canadian Rugby,
but now the forward line is again at
full strength. Ralph Henderson, another pb.yer who was lured to the
great grid gam?, may return to basketball if he can get through his midterms, However, he will not play

the Blue and Gold again this year.
Swan Good
Bill Swan will relieve Willoughby
at forward. Bill moves un from Intermediate A this year, and is probably th? most improved player at
Varsity. He started the game only
last year, and by the way he is going
now. he will be a valuable asset to
the senior team. The other relief
