Of Instrument
"The French horn is to the orchestra what the pedal is to the piano,"
said Allard de Ridder yesterday at
the commencement of the third of
his series of lectures on orchestral
instruments and form.
"The use of the horn tone is a
great art, which the masters have
used to vary great effect, particularly
the more modern ones," ne went on,
"Hayden wrote for only two, as did
all the earliest composers, but Beethoven composed for three and most of
the subsequent ones composed for
Mr. de Ridder added that the most
effective range of the French horn
is from middle C to A, although it is
possible to get as low as F below the
lowest line on the staff and also several notes above A. The born can
be played stacatto or slurred, as well
a.i legatto and normally.
"The euphonium is rare in the orchestra," he said, "it has not as fine
• ton* I think, atlhough clear, but
it can be used as a fourth horn in
quarters. It is a relative of the tubas. The quartet form is very well
suited to horns, and many p.eces not
originally Intended for horn have
been rewritten in that form."
Mr. de Ridder pointed out that in
early music all the music for horns
was In the natural tones. "Valves
Were invented in the middle of the
19th century," he said, "and so the
modern horn is chromatic."

MOST of the early constitutional history of U.B.C. is well
known - - what is not can be easily found in the University Calendar. My aim in this rambling story is to extract facts
and incidents from the history of the University that are not
generally known or appreciated-facts and incidents that will
show some of the story behind the scenes in the development of
the University of British Columbia.
The University opened in the autumn of 1915—and the old McGill University College of B.C. ceased to exist. Among those members ef the old
M.B.C. staff who continued with the
new college were; Dr. J. G. Davidson,
Miss Isabel Macinnes, E. E. Jordan,
H. T, Logan, and J, Henderson. These
names are still familiar to us today.
Professors Logan and Jordan directed
the establishment of an Officers'
Training Corps at that time.
The first President of tho University was Dr. F. F. Wesbrook, and Mr.
John Ridington was in charge of the
Library. The faculties of Agriculture
and Applied Science had as their
Deans L. S. Klinck and R. VI. Brock,
From the first Dr. Wcsbroon encouraged student government, and on
Oct. IS, 1915, declared that, "It was
the desire of the faculty and the
President to see the students assume
the responsibilities of their own self-
Sherwood Lett was the first President of the Alma Mater Society and
together with Miss E. Story and Prof.
Logan he drafted a student constitution.
The Council, of eight members, met
October 25, 1915. Early mestings were
largely taken up with organization.
Before November 26 the Council had
been meeting in the Aits Building,
but on that date President Wesbrook
allotted a "Council Chamber" in the
Geology Building and proper dignity
was assurred for the original "tin
January 3, 1916, Sherwood Lett resigned to take a commission in the
121st Battalion C.E.F. A few days
later a decision was made to raise a
company from U.B.C. for the Western
Universities Battalion. Lett was succeeded by J. E. Mulhern as President
of the A.M.S.
Because of the War, men's athletics
were not very active. The records
do show, however, a rugby team in
1916 which played only two games—
but won both. Basketball and hockey
each boasted two winning teams,
A girls' Ice-hockey club led by Nellie Ballantuie was formed on Jan. 24,
1916. They played the Vancouver

Professor Wood
Traces Club
"The only continent where there
seem to be no graduates of the UJB.
C. Players Club is South America,"
said Professor F. G. C. Wood when
addressing a general meeting of the
Players Club in Arts 106 Wednesday
Mr. Wood spoke on the history of
the club, and was Introduced by the
President, Hugh Palmer, as the
founder and "patron saint" of the
U.B.C. Players.
"The club came into being Nov. 2,
1915, and of the five members of a
committee appointed to start activities, only one remains in Vancouver—
G. L. 'Pat' Fraser," continued the
speaker. "The others are scattered
as far as Ceylon in the west and New
York in the east."
The original purpose of thc Players
Club was two-fold—firstly, to encourage presentation of plays by students
of the University, and secondly, from
time to time to bring outstanding actors to the University. There were 40
members the first year, only 13 of
them boys.
The first play, therefore, had a cast
of 27, with 18 women. It was "Fanny's First Play," by Jerome K. Jerome. The play was announced Jan.
4 and presented Feb. 18. The profit
from the play was $167, which was
given to the University Red Cross.
The play toured to Victoria and
New Westminster to raise funds for
thc 196th Western Universities Battalion.    The effect of war-times was ,

"The Civil Service offers to
those engaged in that work security in a good living with a
steady income, good social contacts and a high rate of superannuation," stated Mr. Leon
Ladner, K.C., when he addressed a large audience on
"Civil Service as an avocation"
in Arts 100 on Wednesday
Mr Ladner former M.P. for Vancouver South at Ottawa and now
Honorary Consul for Belgium, told
the assembled students the system of
application and examination for ap-
pointment to the Canadian Civil Service. The appointments are made by
the Civil Service Commission which
consists of three commissioners ap- -
pointed for a period of ten yean.
Notice of vacancies, examinations, requirements and application forms are
forwarded to Postmasters, M.P.'s, and
public institutions all over Canada.
Applications are forwarded to the
Post Office department in Ottawa and
thence to the Commission, he said.
"The popular conception that political patronage plays a major part ln
the Civil Service appointments is misconstrued," stated Mr. Ladner in outlining the various Departments. "For
the most part any such patronage is
confined to the lower brackets of the
service and to part time jobs such as
the Christmas rush extras in the Post
Offices. Permanent appointments are
made by the commission and offer
the Wghest measure of security," he

Juniors Consider
Raise In Fees
Much discussion has been caused
among the members of Arts '37 regarding the Executive's proposal to
raise the class fees to $1.25. As far as
can be gathered, however, most juniors seem to be in accord with their
executive's plans for a bigger and
better party with first rate catering.
They seem to agree that the much
better food ond pleasant surroundings
are worth the small increase in fees.
"The Arts '38 party last night was
a success in most ways except the
refreshments," stated John Logan, the
Junior President, when interviewed
concerning the proposed raise In fees.
"It is impossible to obtain better catering than that last night with the
present $1 charge. Our executive is
unanimous in its desire to make the
Junior Prom a major function in all
but its official listing and hopes to
see the class endorse its proposal on
Tuesday. Raise our fees and we can
give you the best catering of any
dance in  the university calendar."
The matter of increasing the fees
will be discussed at an important
meeting of Arts '37 Tuesday noon in
Arts 100. At this meeting also four
candidates will be elected fiom the
nominations received for the honor of
running for Queen of the Junior
Prom. Nominations, signed by ten
members of the class are receivable
at Students' Council Office or by any
member of the executive up till Tuesday noon.
The president urged all juniors to
lie sure to turn out for the class
meeting on Tuesday, "There is a lot
of important business to perform,"
he stated, "so I hope we get a good
turns out and keep up our reputation as the best class on the campus."
"Personality plays a big part in
getting appointments since those in
the service must meet tne public in
a diplomatic manner. Thus ability to
do the job is not enough," added Mr.
Ladner as he explained that there are
two examinations, the written and the

Over in the Library Building there exists a
Museum housing relics of the aboriginal life
of the whole Pacific area. At the time it was
willed to the University, the Smithsonian Institute offered a half million dollars for it. The
donor wished U.B.C. to possess it, however,
and today the collection is crammed into one
room - - the second room beyond the head of
the women's stairs leading to the basement.
However, the Library authorities have
taken the rather petty attitude that since the
Museum is not strictly a library adjunct, no
signs can be posted up to inform students of
its existence. As a result this educational and
highly interesting collection is disgracefully
If general interest were revived in this Museum, there might be arranged some liason between our collection and the rather chaotic
collection in the Carnegie Library. The downtown collection contains much British Columbiana, while ours is weak in this very section.
Could the curator of the Carnegie collection be
persuaded to assemble his exhibits beside ours
in (say) the largely unused Faculty Rooms, the
resultant display would be one of which Vancouver might well be proud. It would attract
infinitely more attention from students and
visitors alike.
The only obstacle to this scheme is the provincialism and small jealousies of the officials
who could effect it.
You probably never even noticed last Friday, but I wasn't here. I was mad the week
before that, it seemed to me everyone I knew
owed me letters, and all week long not a single
letter arrived, so vengeance was indicated.
This literary affair has to be written Sundays to catch the mail. You people may think
you have your little difficulties in Sunday coping, but until you have a column deadline that
day you are as babes unborn as far as suffering is concerned.
So I sat down to the typewriter last Sunday evening and rolled in the paper and was
suddenly confronted with an appalling fact.
Like Oliver Hardy on one notable occasion,
I had nothing to say.
So with a slight heightening of the abysmal
gloom, and no small satisfaction, I rolled out
the paper and cinically muttered, "Let "em
whistle for it." And that's what you're supposed to have been doing.
All this week I didn't get a letter, either.
But this morning I did. It was from Mr. Pattullo, sort of indirectly, breaking the news
about how expensive a child Persephone was
going to be this year. Maybe I'll let him whistle
for it, too.
Sometimes the newspapers and magazines
unconsciously supplement each other with bits
of a jigsaw puzzle and make up stories which
cause their genuine fiction to appear like thirty
year old tintypes. A macabre example turned
up recently in the Sunday edition of the New
York Times and Time, the weekly news magazine.
Two Saturdays ago the movie section of the
Times published an article entitled "Gory,
Gory Hallelujah" by Andre Sennwald. The article discusses the cinematic trend to horror in
the past year, speculating on its origin, which
he believed was the national state of mind.
He describes lushly scenes from "Mutiny
on the Bounty," "Frisco Kid," "Barbary Coast"
"China Seas" and Lives of a Bengal Lancer" to
illustrate his point, He continues, "The result
is that I am now . . . striving to convince myself that I am representing a profund universal
emotion rather than a private aberration when
I gloat lingeringly over these scenes of violence." The article winds up with a paragraph
entitled "Unfinished Businesss."
It was published on Saturday. January 11.
"Time" reports that on Saturday, January 11,
the body of Andre Sennwald was blown to
pieces. Apparently he had committed suicide
with decent neatness by turning on the gas.
When the gas became very thick, somehow
there was an explosion which blew the side out
of the apartment house.
What psychopathic quirk of human nature
is it that inspires otherwise normal, healthy
men and women to sweep onto a stage, wave
extravagant orms hither and yon, and pretend
to be characters other than they are? Why do
people commit to memory long stretches of peculiar speech, then come forth garbed in bizarre costumes and smothered in unlovely
greasepaint, and recite to an accompaniment
of circular and lateral gestures?,
Whatever it is, it is clearly manifested these
days in the erractic actions of the Players' Club.
Various people weave about a bare stage, stammering, simpering, and curtseying in the airy
belief that they are characters of the Reformation period—even competing for the right to
represent these characters. A comedy by the
peculiar Mr. Goldsmith is the object of the
Players' attention, and being a good, sound,
wholesome piece of dramatic literature, will
probably come out well.
I any event, the Club will burst forth in
March with a three-night run of, doubtless, a
handsome, swinging, full-bodied production,
embodying the frenzied effort of innumerable
rehearsals, committees and browbeatings. It
will bring fleeting pleasure to a fairly large
body of people; but to what concrete purpose
the actors have exerted such intense concentration, adopted such alien characters, and taken such quantities of time, will still remain
something of a mystery.
This department is to be devoted to tales
which, the wilder they sound, the truer we
guarantee them to be. The ulterior motive is to
make Riply look silly because he didn't find
them first, but we warn you and him and
everyone that if we run out of material for it
we aren't above quietly cribbing some of his
things, which have on occasions been dished up
already through this medium as useless information.
The department is hereby launched with the
perfectly true tale of the farmer who lost his
The cow was kept in a barn, as cows usually
are. It had a loft immediately over Mme.
Vache's quarters, through which hay could be
tossed from above. One night the farmer heard
something in the loft and got out his double
barrelled shotgun. He shouted up from the
yard, and there was a bang, thump, swoosh,
and then silence.
He opened the barn door to investigate and
found that some one had opened the door in
the ceiling from the loft, apparently, for the
barn was full of hay. He searched the yards and
the fields about the place, but found no trace
of the marauders, and poor Mme. Vache was
nowhere to be found. He concluded they had
swiped her and made a hurried departure.
Imagine his sensations ten days later on
seeing Mme. Vache's forequarters emerging
from the barn door framed in hay. Valiently
she had eaten her way out. She was groggy
from over-eating and had a powerful thirst, but
apart from that no harm was done.
Silly, but fairly true.

Senior class of 1926 had an airtight
system for making a success of their

given out to the women and any woman who had not been contacted by
her "man" by the time the tickets
were distributed could take anyone
she wished. This party was the first

They were proud of the fact that they
had established a precedent for graduating classes and they hoped it
would be continued for other years.

"Bluecoat" School in London, founded in 1552 by Edward the Sixth. He
graduated from St. Mary's Hospital
Medical School, where he was gold
medalist. He was one of the youngest
candidates to receive a degree from
the Royal College of Physicians of
London. After graduation he was
awarded a research scholarship under
Sir Alworth Wright, originator of
anti-typhoid inoculation, and proponent of vaccine therapy.
FiveVears ago Dr. Dolman was invited by the Connaught Laboratories
of tha University of Toronto to come
to Canada to undertake special microbe research. His Investigation resulted in the discovery of two new
biological products for the specific
treatment and prevention of infections. These preparations, in general
present use by the medical profession,
have greatly minimized illness and
death due to certain infectious diseases.
Dr. Dolman's position as head of
the Department of Bacteriology and
Preventive Medicine in the University is an excellent example of cooperation between the Provincial Government Health Laboratories, and
was recently awarded the Degree of

wherein I see Gimlet-Eye Gim
- - the Perservering Pyke - -
and lo! - - it is the year 1946!
Just to prove my penetrating
powers, I'll look in on a few of
our friends. Keep still Gim!
How can I see with you wiggling around? When you wiggle-waggle your wuggle the
Yogi sees nothing but waves
and water. What's that you
say, Gim? Oh, you aren't

Now the picture begins to take
form. I see the North Vancouver Ferry No. 1. I can't tell which way it's

It seems that every two days he tests
the boiler water for corbonate and
other corruption. It appears to be
very technical, so I won't try to describe it. The rest of the time he stokes
the furnace—purely as a hobby.
And now I'll take a trip out to the
University- but wait-Ill stop and
have a look Into the back of a pretty
little West Point Grey home. Listen,
Gim. What's that voice I hear?
"Squad, change direction right —
ight form! Forward! Halt! Squad,

to tell you kids that when yer fix
yer don't fix?" But somebody calls
from the door:
"Hugh! Send those children in at
"But they're as much mine as they
are yours, aren't they?" protests Mr.
"You heard me!"
"Yes m'love. But say—just one more
set of triplets and we can start platoon drill!"
And now let's continue on out to
the University. Gim says they are talking about putting up a Women's Union Building soon. Most of the faces
are new. But who's that over by the
door of the Aggie Barn? Why, it's Tel
Potter—sure it is! What's he doing
there, Gim? Gim'says they are going
to remodel the barn to hold another
cow. There seems to be a bit of work
to clean up before '.he main part of
the survey starts.
I see that they have a couple of
farmers in charge of the crops here.
There they are talking over in the

"Well, John," 'says Mr. Green, "So

Ladner Talks On

tlon and examination system. "But
here again," he said, "I wish to dissipate popular misconception that
such appointments are under the control of political patronage." In proving his point Mr. Ladner referred to
Dr. Skelton, appointed Undersecretary
of External affairs by the Kt. Hon.
MacKenzie King in pre-Bennett days,
who, when the Bennett Government
came into power, continued as usual
in his position and enjoyed the full
confidence of the Conservative government.
"Positions are not numerous," Mr.
Ladner told the meeting, "cince vacancies only occur through deaths, accidents or resignations. Discontents
which arise over seeming injustice in
appointments, promotions and increases in salaries can easily be paralleled in everyday business life. In
situations where applicants are of
equal ability those who possessed the
best personal contacts will naturally
receive the appointments, since - his
application is the most dependable,"
he stated.
In concluding his address Mr. Ladner stated some of the advantages of
the Civil Service. "Salaries run from
$1,500.00 to 18,000.00 or $10,000.00 per
annum and superannuations are
based on three-fifths of the average
salary for the five years pieceeding
superannuation," he said. Holidays
are three weeks, with a day sick
leave granted each month. "The unusual amount of leisure which is offered to employees in the service
gives ample time for indulgence in
hobbies or any Intellectual pastimes
such as writing, history research and
other subjects. Testimony to this are
the numbers of men in the Service
who have become prominent in outside fields."
McKillop Hopes
For Good Party
"The way In which the girls are
responding to the Leap Year Dance
is indicative of the good spirit of the
Education Class," said Lex McKillop,
predicting a success for the Education
Party which will be held at Killarney
on Saturday night.
The Colombians will furnish the
music and a supper will be served
during the evening.
Among those invited are Dean and
Mrs. Buchanan, Mr. and Mrs. Black,
Dr, Pilcher, Prof. Sedgewick, Prof.
Cooke, and Prof. Wood.
It is expected that romance will
flourish on the campus after the fair
schoolma-ams have made the most
of their Leap Year opportunities.

Of U.B.C. History

were also Interested In swimming and
life-saving work.
All this time many U.B.C. boys
were with the Allied armies in
France. By May 1916, 116 students
had enlisted and a year later the
number waa 209, with 29 having paid
the supreme sacrifice.
In the Council minutes for October
31, 1917, we find a motion to the effect that, owing to food shortage in
Canada, refreshments at University
functions ba forgone. A student victory loan fund at this time had
reached $25,250.
In May, 1917, five faculty members
were with the troops overseas. These
were: Major R. W. Brock, Capt. E.
E Jordan, Lieut. H. T. Logan, Lieut.
Stuart J. Schofield, and Serg. Mack
Eastman (now In Geneva).
The young University, born in war
time, was suffering under the stress
of the conditions. Student energy was
entirely devoted to raising money for
Red Cross work or for hampers to
send the boys "over there." And the
efforts were appreciated, as many letters home  showed.
"I had no Idea such good things to
eat existed," says one letter, while
another remarks that "It Is pleasant
to think that one Is not entirely forgotten by his college."
In the Council minutes for October
4. 1918, appears a simple note, "that,
in the illness of Dr. Wesbrook, Dean
Klinck shall act as President."
Then, on Oct. 19. Dr. F. F. Wesbrook, first President of the University of British Columbia, passed
away. His death marked the end of
a busy life, the latter part of which
was entirely devoted to developing
the young University that lie headed.
With his death, the first era of U.B.C.
comes to an end—The University having passed through difficult times,
under the guiding hand of an understanding man, was properly prepared
for the years to come.

force of blowing," he added, "but if
students try it anything can happen,
it's harder than it seems. It is also
possible to mute It by putting the
hand in the bell: this gives a very
fine echo effect, rather similar to the
woodwinds, which is often used by
the great composers."
"Of all the musical forms studied
so far the one part song form is the
only one that can stand by Itself.
Now we go on to the two part and
three part song form," he said, switching from horns to the part of his lecture on form.
"Any song that has two definite
and distinct parts and that is complete
is called a two part song form. The
first part may have periods or an
eight bar phrase, the second is different but much the same in form and
importance. Usually some part of
the second section is much like some
part of the first, to recall it," he
He went on to say that some songs
show repetition of the second part.
"Repetition is a very essential and
very important thing at times," he
"The three part song form has a
beginning, a middle part, completely
different from the beginning and a
finish which is a repetition of the
start. It is necessary that there be a
good close atferward. The repeat, or
third part must be recognizably like
the first part, though it may be
shortened or lengthened," Mr. de
Ridder said.
"Some composers give quite a bit
of thought to variation of repetitions,"
he added, "and they often add at the
last a finish or coda, often called by
the Italian name, codata."
"We have proceeded to musical
units of interest," he went on, "since
most minutes are three part song
forms, and waltzes more." He went
on to say that there are many other
song forms such as the five and seven part songs. Many songs have
shortened afterphrases, "extension
and abbreviation are very important
in music."
Mr. de Ridder concluded his lecture
by playing on his violin, "To Spring,"
by Grieg, a three part song form
that he thought particularly fitting
to the lecture. Unfortunately the
audience clapped too soon, before he
could finish the codata, but this gave
him the opportunity to give some
good advice, "always wait for the
codata." He ended by demonstrating
the difference in pitch of the conclusion from the start.
Proof Sheets Of
Geology Maps Oat
The Department of Geology of The
University of British Columbia has
just received the proof sheets of the
Geological Map of Hong Kong and
the adjoining leased territory. The
field work was done by S. J. Schofield, 1923-24, M. Y. Williams 1924-25,
W. L. Uglow 1925-26, and Dean R. W.
Brock 1927-27 and 1932-33, Dean
Brock being in charge. The Geological Survey was undertaken by the
Colonial Government of Hong Kong
and the maps are being reproduced
by the War Office, Southampton,
The publication of the report haa
been delayed by the death of Dr. Uglow in 1926 and of Dean Brock in
1935, but S. J. Schofield and M. Y.
Williams are completing the work as
expeditiously as possible.
The Map, drawn to the ccnle of %"
equals 1 mile, is 26"x33", representing
an area of about 1400 square miles.
The land, which is less than 50 percent of the area, includes the islands
of Hong Kong and Lan Tau, the peninsula to the north known as the
Leased Territories, and hundreds of
small islands. The geology is represented in sixtean separate colours,
and the map is the most detailed of
any so far prdouced of the mainland
of southeast China.
The work has been unusual in that
the geological staff of a Canadian
University has undertaken the entire
survey of a Crown Colony.

A striking manifestation of Canadian student pacifist opinion was
witnessed in Toronto on December
30 and 31 when some 75 student delegates from Universities and high
schools all over Canada, including
thirty McGill students, gathered at
the first National Student Peace Conference to be held in the history of
this country.
Decrying war as against the best
interests of the vast majority of the
people of all countries," as destroying "material and spiritual values
built up through generations of progress," and as betraying "the creative
aspirations of youth," youthful delegates . . . established a National Student Peace Movement to mobolize
student and public opinion in an effective struggle for peace . . .

Governments to achieve peace by
means of collective action through

Features Strong U. S. Squad
As was announced at the Pep meet yesterday, Varsity's
aspiring senior A basketball team will play Cheney Normal
at noon today in a return game from the holidays. In an effort
to get all students out the admission has been reduced to only
ten cents.
Varsity lost to the Cheney team in the holidays but with
their added experience and the fact that they played on a small
floor in the States, the boys hope to win the game. It is expected
that Patty Patmore, Varsity's scintillating forward will return
to help his team mates. Doc will probably start the staunch old
timer Pringle at centre. ,
•<S> This game is of special importance
because it will show the interest
which the students take in inter-collegiate games.

A girls, after being on the wrong side
of a 13-11 score at three-quarter time,
rallied to defeat the Varsity team 35-
15 Wednesday night at V.A.C. gym.
The collegians tried desperately to
win their last game. They checked
hard and made their few tries for
baskets count. They were considerably helped by the Province girls
who had difficulty in making their
plays work and also fumbled a great
deal. But the wonderful part of the
newsies game was the way thoy threw
the ball so it circled the rim of the
basket twice and then dropped outside again.
What proved to be the co-eds
downfall was their lack of fresh
players. They had eight girls turn
out but only seven were able to play:
Dot Yelland, a valuable player, had
unfortunately strained the ligaments
of her knee. When these tired collegians tri-od to stop the freth Province girls, who were sent ir. to play
in the last quarter, they couldn't do
it and the winners scored twenty-
four points to the losers two.

Although no official statement has

the committee appointed to investigate the status of American football
and the question of raising the status
of ice hockey are practically positively known. The committee, under the
guidance of John Harrison, decided
to give American football the stand-

a sub-major.

Mr. Van Vliet wishes to see more

that they are still open to all who
wish to attend and that no applications are necessary.

Although the Rowing Club has been
working hard of late, they apparently
omitted to submit a petition to the
effect that their club also be elevated
so, in the words of one of the committee members, "We did not oven mention the Boat club."
This does not mean that tbe American Football will be played at the
University next year, since a resolution against that course has already
been passed by the Canadian Rugby
Club, but if the game ever is resumed it will be a Major Sport, and
the players will this year be elegible
for Big Blocks.

, Alex Morrison, the celebrated American golf pro in his
very sensational treatise on golf where he practically revolutionizes the principle of the golf swing, makes the following
statement at the outset of his book: ,'While golf is a game of
ease it is by no means an easy game." In this respect, the game
of bowling may be classed in the same category as that of the
royal and ancient vintage. As a matter of fact, it might surprise
you to know just how similar are these two most popular
games. This most fascinating pastime is one which can be, and is,
indulged in by young boys and girls from the age of ten up, and
by ladies and gentlemen in all walks of life up to and even
beyond the age of eighty. As an exercise of an none-vigorous
nature, it is most highly recommended by physicians the world

The Vancouver Rugby Union officials have a treat in
store for local rugger fans
which even after the magnificent display of the New Zealand fifteen, should satisfy even
ie most critical patrons. This
uggle decides the fate of the
>phy for the year.
The Thunderbirds have been turning out en masse for thc practices
and the complete team is in shape for
this match. After the brand of rugby
! displayed at the All-Black game last
Saturday, Varsity may adopt new
tactics for this game. According to
Mr. Meredith, the All-Black manager, there are definite advantages to
the 3-4-1 scrum of his New Zealand
boys. It presents a more compact
packing with freedom given to each
man to push. Another feature is the
"zone" play. In this the forwards, on
attack, run straight up the field, making a kick to centre the three's. There
are many other equally important
plays which will be seen by the fans
on Saturday.
The team line-up reads much the
same as usual, with the stalwart six
of the Rep team in their ordinary
positions. Andrews, who earned his
place as hook in the last pre-Christ-
mas game is again playing there. Bird,
Leggatt, Mercer, Roberts, Wilson,
Robson, Carey, Harrison, Pyle, Senkler, Colthurst, Maguire. Porter, Pearson are all slated to turn out on Sat-
An individual who comes to a golf
pro for instructions without ever having played the game before and without any pre-conceptions of the game,
is like an angel sent from Heaven.
The same thing applies in bowling,
although I believe it is not as difficult to correct your faults in bowling
as it is in golf. As a matter of fact,
I speak from personal experience and
I know any number ot golfing enthusiasts who will bear me out. In
the past eight years since entering
the bowling business, I have had a
wonderful opportunity of making a
thorough study oft this game from
both the theoretical as well as practical end. Like any other game, there
are several schools of teaching and
many divergent authoritative opinions
and I would like to state at the outset that mine is strictly an orthodox
system. In all lines of sport, champions are produced who use a freak
style; but that does not justify the
average Individual using that particular style which may just be adapted
to that particular champion's physical
make-up. In this article, I shall endeavour to elucidate in as simple instructions as possible the (Momentary

There are three essential phases in
bowling: 1. The grip of the ball; 2.
Footwork on the alley; 3. The delivery. The leading experts In this
g:ime rate foot-work as the most important but we shall deal with that
feature after the grip. To grip the
ball properly, the finger tips should
always be moistened with a sterilized
sponge placed at the head < f the return of the alley, and then wiped off
with a towel placed directly below
for that purpose. This ensures a firm
grip and the ball may be controlled
by the finger tips. The fingers are
placed well around the ball and
spread as far as possible around the
bottom and right half. The thumb
is placed well up on top and pointing
slightly in to the left. (The right-
handed bowler is now being discussed.
For the left-hander, merely reverse
these instructions). THe direction of
the thumb guides the direction of the
ball, consequently on the first shot
it is directed at the 1-3 pocket. The
arm should be held close in to the
side just as in golf. Now you are
ready to begin the footwork.
One of the most common fallacies
in bowling is that the approach to the
foul-line is a run.   Nothing could be
further   from   the   proper   procedure.

Senior Soccerites
To Play Forsts
On Saturday
Seniors will play Forsts on their
home ground at Templeton Park at
,2:30 on Saturday.
It may be recalled that the last
game with the Forsts was one of the
most exciting of the season in which
Varsity drew with them. Although
Varsity's team has been considerably
weakened since then, with last week's
win to back them up the Thunderbirds should take Forsts. One draw
back however is that Quayle, who
so ably took Bill Wolf's job at centre
half was hurt in an interclass basketball game on Wednesday. Ho may not
be out for the game on Saturday.
