"Why should a group of our moBt
promising young compatriots annually be sent to Oxford, "that
home of lost causes"?
This question, posed by many
home-loving Americans today, is
well answered by Joseph B. Harrison, Professor ot Bnglish, at the
University of Washington, in a
subtle delineation of the gentle art
ot Oxonian slacking which Indicates that that noble tutor of the
American mind has, at one time,
passed more than a few fleeting
hours In the tranquility of the renowned institution.
The article, printed ln the Washington Daily, is given the illustrious cognomen of Bullsesslon.
Having been present at many of
those affairs should be inclined
to say that here there was less of
bull and more ot truth.
Why, when Amerloan unlverel-
tlss hsvs quits ss good aoadomle
plants, oampuass quits mm broad,
buildings quits as grsnd and leas
musty, Isboratorles quito ss well
or bettor equipped, curriculum aa
ample, and Instructional staffe
Just as competent, ss Oxford-
why young Amerloans, with ths
help of Rhodea Soholarahlpa,
ahould deaart their native ahoroa
la a difficult queation to answsr.
But slacking, human eontaots,
and *n Individualistic typs of
aoadomle proeodurs seem to supply tho onswer In a moat thorough  fsshlon.
"Slacking in those days," says Dr.
Harrison, "might well be defined
as being employed with matters of
no practical or Immediate, perhaps
even ot no ultimate Importance."
It la, he points out, possessed of
an old-time sweetness and light
which picked up a lot of bad connotations during the World War, and
It Is a condition which comports
HI with a Puritan conscience. The
slacker becomes completely free, an
Oxonian, when he learns to.purge
an occasional hour of every vestige
of purpose to indulge it without
qualm, both during its passing and
in retrospect.

MacDonald defeated Howard
Bishop and Bert Ayre, representing the University of Alberta, in a McGoun Cup Debate here Friday night. Decision of the judges—-Dr. J. W.
Mcintosh, H. C. Benwell and
P. W. Smelts — was unanimous in favor of U.B.C.
Martin, supporting the affirmative of the resolution,
"Resolved that Canada should
contribute to Empire Defence," opened his speech by
pointing out the danger of a
first-class war within the near
future, and the weak state of
Canada's armed forces . He
maintained that Canada is
predominantly British by heritage and sentiment, and that
a British war is on that account a Canadian war.
Coming to the question of defence, he attempted to prove that
independent neutrality was impossible, as was also dependence on
the United States for protection.
The alternative ot these courses, he
affirmed, was contribution to Empire Defence.
"It is not that Empire defence
has been tried and found wanting," he concluded, "but that it
has been found difficult and not
Howard Bishop led the negative
attack.   He  stated that  as  Canadians we want peace at the least
possible cost.   Canada, he affirmed,
could no longer And protection in
the  League,  and  then  scored  the
idea   that   Canada   should   out   of
gratitude aid Britain if by not doing so she could remain at peace.
He cited Britain's blunders in administration   and   exploitation   of
Canada, saying that even if we did
owe  a debt, we  had  paid  it with
sixty thousand lives and a national
debt for now four billions of dollars.
"Canada is ideally situated for
an isolationiat role, and in any case
could make no appreciable contribution to Empire defence. Her participation means merely financial
ruin, appalling loss of life, and a
dictatorship at the end of war."
Alex MacDonald, concluding for
the affirmative, maintained that the
British navy afforded protection to
Canadian trade. "To jeopardise our
commercial relations is to jeopardise our nationhood," he declared,
aa he drew a picture oi all the
world looking enviously toward
Canada's rich resources, and said

Spinsters' Club
At Wellesley
WELLESLEY (N.F.C.U.S.) Wellesley boasts two Sprinters' Clubs,
one the "No Rata Dates," with the
Bleeding Heart as club flower and
with the theme song, "Solitude."
The other club, the "Forgotten Women," honors the Bachelor's Button
and the lyrci, "All Alone." Taking
their cue from Esquire, each evening they fervently pray "not for
myself, but, dear heaven, please
send my sister a brother-in-law."
They blithely ascribe their success
to the fact that "spinsters are born,
pot made."

Institute Is Victim
Of Bad Weather
A disappointed audience left
the Vancouver Institute's regular meeting Saturday night,
the victim of another caprice
of weather. The audienoe
voted, on chairman O. B.
Winter's suggestion, to postpone until January 80 when
the weather might permit a
bigger audienoe, Prof. England's leoture, "The Threat to
Disinterested Eduoatlon."
Instead of the lecture, Prof. England entertained the audienoe with
slides collected during his recent
Buropean tour, explaining their Import aa he went along. The slides
dsalt chiefly with adult education
movements in Europe, of which
Prof. England, who ls U.B.C. Director of Extension, has made a special atudy.
Considerable experimentation with
Folk schools has been carried on
in the Scandinavian countries. In
Norway, Sweden and Denmark are
to be found more than SO of these
achoola, whioh are houaed in modern impressive buildings. Here rural unemployed and others interested come to learn useful handicrafts. The school have a tremendous influence on life in the country districts.
In the cities, however, the folk
school has not been so successful.
The chief occupation of graduates
seem to be soap-box oratory, Marxian ideology having been assimilated at the schools.
Turning his attention to Britain,
Prof. England praised the London
education authorities, mentioning
In particular the polytechnic schools
where everything is taught from
butchering to manicuring.
He alao lauded the National
Council of Social Service which has
fostered education and self-help
among the unemployed aa well as
village  development.
At the conclusion of the meeting
the audience was invited to "coffee" at the Chancellor Boulevard
home of the chairman, Mr. G. E.
Defeat Province 38-36
In Saturday Thriller
Saturday night at the V.A.
C. gym, a pro-Varsity howling
mob got another chance to
see that old Collegiate driving
finish pay off in a toe-tingling
two-point win over Chuck
Jones' elongated Province
hoopers, %38-36.
Veterans Bardsley and Henderson on the victorious
Blue and Gold team shared
the hero's spot for the night.
Captain Jimmy Bardsley was
playing the same kind of ball
that led the 1084-85 U.B.C.
squad to the Lower Mainland
championship. His fighting
heart combined with deadly
basket-sniping, made him a
standout in the week-end
thriller. Rangy "Hunk" Henderson, star pivot man on
Maury Van Vliet's quintet,
snatched a cross-court pass
on the run, turned, and
swished the old melon
through the hoop with 21 seconds to play and with his shot
powered Varsity to a top-
place tie with Jones' Newsies.
After the hysterical, half-crasy
basketball fans began to Clear the
fog trom their dissy brains, and
sank, weak, limp, and utterly exhausted into their peWs, a few poignant facta finally registered. One
very important one being that the
Collegiate Cagers have all that
speed and scrapplness of former
years, and look like an even-money
bet to take the Inter-City laurels
from the champion Province Giants.
They meet last year's winners onoe
more this season before the playoffs, and with a win, they'll ease
Into the coveted bye slat.

Final touches are being administered to the plans for a Varsity
stadium these days aa the committee appointed by Council finishes
its investigation Into the matter.
The emergency Alma Mater meeting, oalled ' for January 87, wtll
probably see some decision made
by the students.
Financing plans for all types of
stadium buildings will be presented
to the student body, although it is
thought that the official suppor will
be given to a concrete atrucure.
This could be erected aa tbe first
unit in what would eventually become a circular stadium.
The important matter of finance
will likely be faced by having the
atudent body accept the idea of a
bond issue or loan. The borrowing
power of the A.M.S. should be sufficient to cover the stadium cost,
officials believe.
Although Councillors have little
to _ay regarding the stand they will
take next Wednesday, it is understood that Council will back one or
the other of the plans to be submitted, but at ■ the same time, no
attempt will be made to push
through the meeting any one suggestion.

This may or may not be true. It seems, however, that

Ah, Mr. Butterfleldl Sharper than
the serpent's tooth . . .
Of course, dear air, it may have
been that your invincible Ignorance
of our oollegaite customs, which has
led-you into such egregrious errors
in time past, prevented you from
realising the honor conferred upon
you by the dedication of the spring
pottery page to you. Someone
should have written you a letter
with a diagram for your Information; unfortunately we relied upon
your reputed but undemonatrated
Know then, honored sir and Journalistic mentor, that the Littery
Page is our annual prophylactic
against the effects of the annual
Literary Page. Was it sheer malignant Butterneldlsm or mere critical incompetence that made you
quote one of its most absurd paro
dies as the original- effort of a
budding collegiate man of letters?
Of course, you have the obvious
excuse that the originals, like the
productions of the late unlamented
Arthur Brisbane, are so absurd in
themselves that any parody is
bound to be only a pale imitation
Here we are in secret sympathy
with you.
Nevertheless, in this, as.in almost
every other case in which you have
seen flt to turn your somewhat
annoying powers of ridicule upon
the University of B. C. and its admittedly callow and lover-enthuai
astic undergraduates, there has
been that unfortunate element of
deliberately distorted fact upon
which your strictures have been
based. In some cases the distor
tion has evidently been your own,
in some It has been due to the care
lessness or the incompetence of the
reporter upon whose story you have
based your comments.
Even out here we admit many
faults and peculiarly illogical actions are to be found on and about
our campus. Many of these would
make quite legitimate copy for you.
Why, then, dear Mr. Butterfleld,
must you so often go quite out of
your way to bo unfair to us and to
create out of thin air and your turgid imagination absurdities that
never existed?
Can it be that your peculiar and
muoh advertised theories of education appear to you to be based upon
a tottering foundation, and that
they are ao Important to you that
you muat bolster them with thia
type of regrettable tactics?
Reflect, dear sir, this ia not
worthy of you. Weigh against
whatever inner necessity compels
you In thla direction the faot that
many, indeed, the majority, of na
are profound admirers of yonr
journalistic achievements, and In
spite of their alight but evident decline In the yeara alnoe you paaaed
your prime, still regard them aa the
outstanding example of the column-
istic art available to Vanoouver
newspaper readers. We would be
only too delighted to find our real
peculiarities, quite apparent to
most of ua. pilloried In your pagea.

The Ideals and Intentions of
The League of Nations
Experience taught me long ago
that everybody who takes part in a
public debates does so at his peril.
Nevertheless, in a moment of more
than usual weakness, I did agree
to contribute to a recent academic
discussion about the League of Nations. It was a
very friendly little affair; ln fact,
it was almost domestic. But the
results were as
usual. Ono re
porter's headline
read, "Prof. Swats
League of Na
tions"—or something to that effect. And a kindly
editorial on the
debate has suggested si' doubt of
my own "interior convictions" on
what I had to say.
My old experience with debates
is hereby confirmed anew; one debate almost always breeds another.
I wish I could be sure about the
"interior convictions" behind that
kindly editorial. Indeed, many readers must have wondered what it
meant on the surface—for at sev
eral points its syntax was hard to
The editor charged Professor
Angus and myself (the harmless
academic debaters) with not making "the proper statement of the
essential question." As it turns out,
the "proper statement" would run
as follows: that the question was
not of "opposing ideals at Geneva,"
but of "sincerity of intentions"; "it
was not a question of ideals—it was
a queation of character."
All this is a perfect mare's nest
of logic. I won't urge the minor
point that the debate did not recog
nice any "opposition" of ideals at
Geneva. But surely an editor
should know that any serious "intention," good or bad, muat ulti-
matley bo traced back to some sort
of good or bad ideal; that "sincerity" itself is ideal, and that "character" Is nothing If not ideal. In
other words, the "proper statement" of the editor and the improper statement of the doctors are
fundamentally the same.
More in sorrow than in anger, I
now reveal what this very courteous but confused editorial was
really driving at. I quote two of
its concluding sentences: "If every
nation had striven through Geneva
towards peace and understanding
aa sincerely at Great Britain strove,
the League would not havo failed.
... It waa a queation of character."
The plain Implication of thla ia that
the Britiah "character" and "sincerity of intention" (i.e., the British ideals) were all right, bat the
ideals of the others were all wrong.
Surely, surely, suoh monstrous
self-satisfaction cannot poasibly be
the "Interior conviction" of any Intelligent being who reads contemporary history. Put to that bald
shape, lt must aurely be revolting
even to the good man who wrote
the editorial. It la a eaat of mind
quite aa menacing to the League
and to world peace aa Mussolini's
arrogance or Hitler's mania.

BACK ln the days when I was
struggling with Grade 11 algebra ln high sohool, the Students'
Council ot that sohool deolded that
wo should bring the Institution up
to date by Installing a sound projection machine to replace the old
silent machine with which we used
to sbow suoh eplos as the "Birth of
a Nation" and "The Kid."
That was six years ago.
Slnoe tbat time, every progressive sohool In Vanoouver, and In
fact the entire country, has become
equipped with sound movie apparatus. Visual eduoatlon ls the most
modern, easy and efficient way to
teach many subjeots. For other's,
It offers an aid to olaasroom work
that Is Invaluable.
Yet U.B.C. haa to rent a machine
when talkies are to be shown by
tbe Film Sooiety.
Why doesn't somebody aot on
this matter and ask tor tbe proper
equipment? I'll answer you; tbey
have. But the wheels of progress
move slowly lndssd.
A machine oould be bought tor
cash, thus saving a good deal, and
tbe money oould be paid baok by a
few showing ot popular films tbat
would be certain to draw crowds.
At the same time, educational use
could be made of the equipment.
High schools have done it.

"People were exolted, ot oourse,"

Interesting to us In "this so English olty" was her comment that
"English people look like us, when
you see them alone, but look at an

they aeem quite different."
Alao: 'They really are quite worried about the possibility of war,"

Oh Say! Do You Ski?

Last  Sunday  on  the  mountains

Have you never swung down-mountain,   leaving   a   wake   ot   smoky

Dear Madame:
The Allard de Bidder lecturea
have pointed ont again our cry*
..ing need tor a publlo address system. Can your paper clear ap
for all time the mystery ot what
happened to the ono allegedly
presented to the A.M.S. by the
graduating olass of Arts '88. Mr.
de Ridder ta an accomplished
spsaksr, bat there is no reason
why he ahould be required to
raise bla voice to the volume of
a olrous hawker In order to address his audienoe. Especially
when that audienoe oould easily
equip the building with a P.A.
Syatom. Incidentally, how muoh
money haa been spsnt slnoe our
laat aystem dlaappsared in hiring
them from commercial Arms?
In the oold ... on your toes, "Romeo and Juliet" expeoters, you
won't bave to wait long now ... a
freshette In the oast of "Robin
Hood" said she liked tbe work because you "meet sucb interesting
people' ... In tbe Musical Society?
. . . Dr. Morsh'a debunking lecturea
have been attracting a crowd lately
. . . strange as It seems, even tbe
Doctor proves there's nothing In
these various spirit games, the
gullible lads and lassies think there
is. . . .
And furthermore . . . those wbo
are wondering about the Pass System wtll have their questions answered ln ten days or leas . . .
that's a promise . . . the Student
Prince, with his "Jaok Benny
Party" stole an idea that waa aired

In short, one must learn to cease
to care whether or not bills get
paid, whether the future holds anything or not, whether H. G. Wells
ls writing still another book, or
even whether, If, or not, Britain's
Imperial destiny stands upon the
brink ot disaster. Any or all ot
these things may be interesting, but
never important, and tbough all
hell threatens to desoend In the
next hour, still, for ths moment,
one's soul ls volatile and Immaculate, like a summer oloud floating
in tranquility above the things and
the event.
Quoting Oardlnal Newman, the
author explains tha next point.
"Whon a multitude of young men,
keen, aympathetle, and obeervant,
aa young men are, eome together
and freely mix with eaoh other,
they mrm eura to learn from one
another, even If there la no one
to taaoh them."
While Oxford does have professors and examinations, and does
more than throw together a 'multitude' of young men for the purposes
of conversation, he explains, yet "It
is alao oontlrmedly unfriendly to
any organisation for efficiency that
leaves no room for tbe free and
uncoerced aotlvlty of tbe mind."
Thla uncoerced spirit, whioh this
sorlbe (myself) thinks might wsll
be termed tbe students' Valhalla,
Is the product of the acamedlo system of Oxford ot which Dr. Harrison paints a most alluring ploture.
Here (or should tt be termed there)
the long-suffering student Is burdened by no day-by-day compulsions, where there are plenty of
classes and lectures which he is
not required to attend. There are
no credits, grades or precise assignments. There la only "that
moveable feast the final examination which must be taken within a
certain maximum terms of residence.
"Whoever wants to follow a particular curiosity for seven bours or
seven days or even seven weeks
may do so, providing only tbat be
start an adequate number of curiosities before tbe day ot final reckoning. These examinations offer sufficient options to allow a wide latitude of movement within a chosen
The finals usually amount to some
dosen, two three-bour papers a day
for six days during the final week
of residence, and usually these
papers contain around 18 or 14 questions out ot which the candidate ls
expected to answer four or five.

"Obviously tbls sort ot examination throws the emphasis on originality and Independence rather
than upon routine preparation,"
states Dr. Harrison, and "tbls method of preparation and examination
ls a severe discipline for Americans at Oxford." From the point
of view of the author of thla learned
Bull ssssion it will take the newcomer a year or two In which to
get used to the system and the real
result Is that In a short two or
three years he will learn more ot
Independent thinking and aelt-dls-
clpllne than all his previous schooling has taught him.
In surveying the status quo of
our own system here in Canada I
feel moved to inquire what is the
approximate result whioh It gives.
It is generally aocepted that we are
neither one thing nor the other but
have something of both. Some of
the results hint a half-baked condition . . . and yet tbere ls a glint
of gold. Perhaps some campus
brain can figure It out for me.

In the flrst half the Newsies
sprang Into a six-point lead by virtue ot some deadly shooting by
"Long John" Purves, Osborne and
Bumstead, and erratic sniping by
tbe Students. Right from the start
the methodical attack of the Province hoys paid dividends when they
ran up an 1-8 count in their favor.
Varsity were attempting long shots

About half way through the flrst
stansa the Thunderblrd attaok began, to oliok, and scores by Bardsley, Swan and Wllloughby brought
tbe oount to 1-10. Province's rally
pulled them out ln front 88-18 at
the Interval.
In the early going of the seoond
half tbe Collegians began'to oliok,
and grabbed the lead tor the flrst
time at 87-88. Kennington and
Purves however came into the picture at this stage, shooting the
Newsies Into a tour-point lead

Dear Sir:
I wish to criticise the laoka-
dalsaoal attitude of the management of tho traok olub. Baok in
tbe days when we bad no managerial system there was much
better management, more enthusiasm, and better publicity.
Borne weeks ago the Arta '80
road raoe waa scheduled to be
run off, hut it seemed that the
Senior Manager was not present
and tbe Junior Manager did not
feel Inclined to assume the responsibility of managing the raoe,
so many spectators and participants were disappointed. The
race was supposed to have been
postponed again, but why It was
not later run off, I do not know-
One week prior to the scheduled date of this race there waa
only a small portion of a column
ln the "Ubyssey" mentioning tbe
time of tbe race. There should
be from throe week's to a month's
notice ot a raoe of this kind, becauae there are many new men
here at the university who do not
know that there is suoh a raoe,
but who would train tor It it
awakened to the tact of ita existence by due publicity. It would
be Interesting to know the layout
of the course, the record Ume,
previous winners of this raoe, together with a little editorial
comment on likely winners this
year, etc., in order to stir up a
little enthusiasm.
Yours sincerely,
Track Enthusiast.
Juniors Second
The Varsity Juniors' position in
the O.V.A.A. League remains unchanged in second place, which
standing they have a chance to
better by winning the game remaining from the flrst half of the season. These Juniors are really good
this year, and stand a fine chance of
snaring the top slot before they are
Here's another shot of the one
and only "Bugs" Bardsley. Once
again Captain "Bug_" went to
town on the basketball floor on
Saturday, scoring H markers,
and leading his team to an historic 38-36 win over the Province "Giants."
In the heat of the battle on Saturday night Ran Matthtson got a
clout on the noggin which bled
throughout the rest ot the game.
The crowd gave him a well deserved hand when he refused to
leave the game. However, he deserves more orchids for the way in
whtoh he stood up to the Iodine that
Coach Maury Van Vllet put on after
the game.
An interesting sidelight on the
game was the manner ln which the
afore-mentioned Mr. Van Vllet went
after bis finger nails when Province snatohed the lead ln the last
two minutes.
TIDBITS: Henderson's last-minute basket was well deserved as
he had extremely bad luck all night
up until then. . . . "Bugs" Bardsley's
push shots trom the foul circle are
the prettiest thtng that one could
see on a basketsall floor. ... In
the closing minutes ot the game
Art Clark entertained all and sundry by tossing sweat shirts hither
and yon while manager Art Bast-
man remained as cool as the proverbial ououmbar.
Senior Girls Drop
CIosb Tilt, 25-20
Three teama from Sardis invaded
the campus last Friday night and
when the last pungent odor of Al
Grant's hot dogs had been wafted
away the Valleyltea had taken all
three tilts.
In the best game of the night a
combined team of Senior A and
Intermediate A women dropped a
hot one to the Sardettes, 28-80. A
point-for-polnt battle made the flrst
half a honey. Pearson and Weeks
grabbed most of Sardis' points ln
this half, while Campbell garnered
all but one ot Varsity's counters.
Score at the breather was 14-9 for
Sardis. The co-ed hoopers fared
slightly better ln the second stansa
hut could not overcome the deficit.
With Campbell and McEwan showing the way for the students and
Wright leading the Valley team
with ten points, the whistle left the
Sardlsans with a five-point margin.
Emdless gamea of ch'nk left both
men's teams in no dondish to play
basketball. The Inter. A.'s after being one point down at the halt, got
only four counters In the second
frame and left the game under a
28-16 deficit. The Senior B's showed
up with only Ave men and had to
recruit Turner and Berry of the
Senior A's. After playing better
ball than their opponents in the
flrst half they tired badly in the
second to be beaten by a 27-80
Big, lumbering Paddy Colthurst
plodded forty times around the
gym to win over Vance McComber
and Bud Burden and earn the right

Russ Keillor Doing
Well In Fight
Former Varsity Athlete
Gets Nod at Portland
One more of U. B. C.'s athletes
came into the limelight after leaving his Alma Mater when Russ
Keillor, well-known campus personality for the past three years,
distinguished himself in the fisticuffing game.
Fighting in the heavyweight division of the Far West Diamond
Belt championship, Russ reached
the semi-final round before being
decisioned by Dave Johnston, of the
Multnomah A. C, Portland. The
Keillor-Johnston battle was a tough
one all the way, with the Portland
boy having a slight edge, which
gave him the judge's nod.
Attending last semester at U. B.
C, Russ waa prominent in sports,
organising, and masterminding the
Boxing Club—one of the few minor
sports to attract attention. A
couple of years back, the same Mr.
Keillor starred as a tackle on Dr.
Burke's American football squad.

plaosd the pill on the floor, and
walked away from It.
Probable bets again on Thursday:
Rolling the ball up one arm, over
the shoulder, and down the second
arm into the waiting paw—Passing
around a couple of befuzsled U.B.C.
checks, using enough "English" on
the pill to allow all the darky strutters to start "bah Jovlng"—A wild
baseball windup, followed by a
sweeping, long heaving motion,
which would ordinarily send the
pill up to the other end of the
floor . . . only It has a habit of
sticking tn tha toutstretched maw-
ler of the "Strutter."—The Globe-
Trotters should be good tor a
couple of smart off-tackle touchdowns, without dribbling — Harry
Russang, a small package of dynamite, will probably again pull bis
fast sneak dribble around hla check,
without the ball—whether theytt
soore baskets without the ball, and
without dribbling will be seen when
they start their crasy antics on
It's a aure bet I— unless you're
one of thoss erosturss who go to
a hystsrloslly humoroua ahow,
and watch all the alslss fill up
with psrtlslly Insane speotatora,
and loave slowly, ajid stately,
muttering ■ under your breath
aomethlng about "what'a fuflny
about that 7"—.but even If you are,
you couldn't hold yourself In this
hllarloua farce.
Bdmonton,   Jan.   13.   (W.I.P.U.)	
The past week has been one of ups
and downs for the University ot
Alberta hockey team. Last Saturday night they travelled to Vegre-
ville and beat the Rangers with a
4-8 score. Scoring once in the second period the Bears started to
play a real brand of hookey. The
last period of the tilt saw a wide
open game, both teams scoring
three times. After the game the
team prepared to leave for Edmonton, when to their great surprise,
the found the bus that they had
travelled in had caught Are during
the game and was completely demolished. However, the Golden
Bears arrived safely home.
On Monday night th.y lost to the
Vegreville Rangers to the tune ot
2-0. Unleashing a smooth passing
attack the Rangers played a heady
game all through and after scoring
ln both the first and second periods,
tightened up their game, successfully hloding off the Golden Bears
till  the  final blast.
