CoedJPep Meet
Co-ed Tickets On Sale Now
Co-Eds are to stage a pep meeting
Monday noon for the Co-Ed Ball to
be held Friday, March 1.
"-Plans tor tMa^ptffr msetlhf are as
yet both secret and Indefinite, but one
thing is fairly certain, there will be
planty of women, and plenty of pep.
All local talent will be employed.
Jack Emerson, with some string
pieces of his orchestra, will be on
hand with the ever-popular symphony "Garnet and the Waitress." It
is hinted that a fashion parade (and
SOME parade) will be presented with
styles from the Ark and since. Artists are very temperamental and refuse to divulge their real names.
Tickets On Sale Now
The Co-Ed Ball, the proceeds of
which go to the Women's Union
Building Fund, has always been a
money-making function. Tickets will
be sold from now on in the caf, and
outsiders may buy tickets at the door.
There will be sixteen dances, though
there will be no printed programmes.
The supper dance will be omitted. As
the Italian Room holds only a limited
number of people who wish to stand
with both feet on the floor, supper
will be served from ten until twelve,
and dancers will dine in relays.
A very adequate survey of the Pulp
and Paper Industry of Canada prefaced Mr. Killam's lecture on Tuesday noon. Tho number of plants,
exports and a resume of the process
were outlined and coupled with tha
Information that this is the greatest
industry In Canada and at present
employs about 35.000 men.
He mentioned that the accountants
have a difficult task in fixing the
exchange value of their products. Assurance must be obtained that the
government of the Importing country
will accept these commodities and
allow payment for them.
The speaker r.ext considered the
more personal side. Replying to a
question on the satisfaction he derived from his particular business he
stated that ho would gain pleasure
from any occupation for where one Is
working and what one Is doing is
more important that what one might
be doing.
College Men Welcomed
As to the advantages of a University Education Mr. Killam said that
college men are welcomed in the industry although they might at first
be troublesome through lack of experience. Generally college men have
more ability but they need the practical experience. The progress would
be still more rapid if the university
men would mingle more freely with
the other workmen.
Mr. Killam advised those who plan
to do any lab work In the plant to
start In that division at once. However, those who hope to achieve executive positions should start at the
bottom and work up.
In conclusion tills business man outlined several essential qualities for
thesucc/uwfcUniar^ Do to-day's work,
in full fo the best of one's ability;
know something of how the work is
done; be able to work atrreeably with
others and to respect their opinions;
possess self control, honesty and
moral courage.
tance of Technique
The artists who contributed to this
collection are ulive, their work is a
live expression of their emotions and
is distinctly British Columbian in atmosphere — these statements were
made by Dr. G. G. Sedgewick in
opening the exh'bit of pa.ntings and
sketches by local artists, now being
held In the library. Thi3 exhibit will
continue until Tuesday, Feb. 26.
Dr. Sedgewick stressed the technique in a work of art. The artist
works in lines end colours, as the
poet works in rhyme and metre. These
ingredients must be united to form
a harmonious whole, or the painting,
although it may be good advertising,
is not art.
"The Thicket"
The popular professor spoke particularly of two canvasses of Miss
Carr's. One of them was that of a
thicket, in which the lines and the
colouring combined to draw the eye
to a central point of light Dr. Sedge
wick said that some of his friends did
not like this painting because it was
such a thickety thicket, but he himself would not have it otherwise.
The lecturer was enthusiastic over
"Blunden Harbour," a canvass which
represents two tntemic figures against
a background of mountans and sea.
It appealed to Dr. Sedgewick because
it seemed to reveal an emotion felt
by the artist and was in Its Inhumanity distinctly British Columbian.
Besides Mis3 Carr there are two
other Victoria artists represented in
the group: M. S. Maynard and J. L.
Shadbolt. The Vancouver artists,
Varley, MacDonald, Scott and Weston, need little recommendation to
the Vancouver public.
Miss Hembroff, who has recently
come to Vancouver from Victoria,
shows a versatile collection of canvasses. Mr. Parkei exhibits canvasses
painted in California and Paris in addition to local scenes. M*ss Weather-
bee is represented by a collection of
small oil sketches.
Queen to Reign
at Junior Prom
Voting Open To Whole
A queen is to be elected for the
Junior Prom, it was derided at an
executive meeting of Arts '36 on
Wednesday noon.
This fortunate young lac'y. who will
be crowned at the prom on March 7
at the Spanish Grill, will be elected
from among a list of eleven candidates. Voting, open to tin whole university, will be done by secret ballot, and a balloj box will be placed
at he foot of ths caf stairs. The votes
will be counted fome time next week.
Queen at Pep Meet
The queen will appear also at a
pep meeting for the prom, the date
of which has nol yet ba?n set. This
custom has long been poular at American institutions of higher learning
and election to this temporary queen-
ship is considered a great, honour.
Though an innovation at U.B.C.,
suggested by H. Housser, treasurer
of the junior class, It Is felt that the
election of a prom queen will greatly
stimulate interest in tho dance and
will probably form a precedent for
later years, In whloh case Arta '36
will claim its full share of credit for
the idea.

out that an adoption of ,i new policy
was necessary to overcome the inertia of the depression.
Schools of Thought
Three schools of thought are found
at present in Canada: Imperialist, Isolationist, and Collectivism, Canada
in order to restore International confidence must adopt the l.-.st policy, a
policy of co-operatioa with the
League of Nations in rrcier to pave
the way for national recovery.
In conclusion, he emphasized the
mere "Parochialism" was not
enough. Canacl must be willing to
support a machinery of peace and
as a last resort collective force. In
this way international confidence
would be restored, and the depression would be greatly alleviated.
The students of the senior classes
of all faculties of the university met
on Tuesday noon in Ails 100 to discuss the class pi.rty and the valedictory gift.
A temporary executive was elected
to get estimates of the cost of this
year's graduation party and the cost
and practicability of various valedictory gifts suggested at the meeting.
The temporary president elected at
the meeting was George Sinclair who
took the chair. Other temporary officers elected were: vice-president,
Dorothy McRae; secretary, Kay Milli-
gan, and treasurer, Leo Gansner.
The graduation fee is ¥6.50.

At the meeting of tne anti-war
council Friday frflernocn in Arts 103,
two main motions we.'.% passed.
(1) That all motions to come before mass meetings in the luturo must
be published at least five clays before tho meeting.
(2) That several members of the
council shall fo;m a study group with
a view to going out and speaking on
specialized topic.?. Member shall study
a certain aspect of the peace question
and be prepared to give talks on htat
aspect. Those on the committee for
this project are: George Cockburn,
Jean Fraser, Peter Disney, and Lex
McKillop, the chairman.
There was a great deal of debate
over both motions. Cyril Chave said
that "a study group spelt tha beginning of the end of the anti-war
movement. We need action," he said,
"this council will slowly pass away
like its ' forerunners if it starts a
study group."
George Cockburn: "We needn't be
afraid of passing out if we follow
up our study with speaking. That
is action "
Chave: "Why not ha v.* everybody
here join the Student League to get
a different idea on the thmg."
Regarding the other resolution, Peter Disney said that "people don't
need five clays to find out why they
belong to an organization."
C.O.T.C. Question

of Rose Maybud, suffered from a natural first-night nervousness, which,
however, did not prevent the show
from being a successful performance
with promise of excelling "The Mikado" by Friday night.
The orchestra has made definite advancement since last year, carrying
off the difficult score with assurance.
Stole Show
Alice Rowe, as "Rose Maybud,"
stole the show on Wednesday, More
than once her fine voice and assured
stage presence saved the play when
It showed signs of faltering. In virtue and modesty she was matched
only by Robin Oakapple, better known
as Ellis'Todd. Their duet, "I Know
a Youth," was one of the high-lights
of the show.
The plot,  in brief,  is as  follows.
Robin   Maybud,   although   he   appears to be a bashful young village
swam, is in reality the Baronet of
Murgatroyd.   He has disguised himself in order to escape the curse of
having to commit a crime a day.   In
his rural disguise he is courting Rose
Maybud,   a  virtuous  young  village
maid who has been brought up on a
book of etiquette.   Being as bashful
as she, he is unable to propose to her,
and even after declaring his sentiments to her in a song, "I Know a
Youth," he cannot get up the courage
to declare himself.  He enlists the aid
of his foster-brother, Dick Dauntless
(John  Stark),  who,  falling in love
with Rose himself, follows the dictates of his own heart, proposes to
her, and is accepted.   Still following
the promptings of his heart, he reveals Robin's true identity to Sir Des-
pard (Gordon Heron), the acting baronet of Murgatroyd.   Heron gave one

Mount Waddington
The subject for tho evening is
"Mount Waddington"—an extremely
difficult peak, the ascent of which
has been several times attempted by
experienced Alpinists, but which has
never yet been conquered. It is to
be attempted this summer, though
it presents extraordinary difficulties,
greater than ever, those of the Mat-

experienced Alpinists, the southeastern summit is unclimbable.

The Musical Society has taken somewhat
too great liberties with the property of students in pasting stickers indiscriminately on
the windshields of cars without first obtaining the permission of the owners.
No doubt many of the students would be
willing to help the society in advertising its
opera in this way, if they were approached on
the matter, or were given stickers with the option of not sticking them to their windows if
they did not wish to do so. But the present
practice does not give any consideration to the
wishes of the persons concerned at all.
It is interesting to draw attention to the
handiwork of that curious specimen of student who apparently is not so constituted as
to permit him to perceive the logical sequence
of ordinal numerals. His existence is most
strongly indicated by the usual state of the
volumes of the Encyclopedia Britannica on the
library refernce shelves.
If one desires to refer to some particular
volume—for instance volume sixteen — one
need not expect to find it in the sixteenth position from the left; and indeed he need not expect to find it between volumes fifteen and seventeen, or even in the neighborhood of those
volumes; That would be entirely too easy. The
purpose of a university education is to teach
us to find things out for ourselves, and so the
only course for him to follow is to start at the
beginning, and if he is particularly lucky he
will find it before he reaches the end.
It must be realized how difficult some students find it to remember that one comes before two, that three comes between two and
four, and the further immense complications
which arise when he tries to deduce similar
relationships between such staggering numbers as twenty-nine and thirty. However, it
would lighten the labor of the semi-intelligent
majority if the above students would either
learn themselves the order in which the books
should be arranged, or else always obtain the
help of some rational being before endeavoring to put a book back on the shelf.
Arts '36 can be noted as a class which, all
through it's career has been fortunate in possessing some of the most live wire executives
on the campus. It can also claim the credit or
rather discredit of being, apart from the said
executive, about the deadest bunch that ever
entered these halls.
They have, however, a year in which to redeem themselves. Their executive has gone
to work and planned an excellent party which
is going to come off on March 7 at the Spanish
Grill. They've even gone so far as to provide
a queen for the affair.
However, no matter how good the plans are
they cannot succeed without the wholehearted
co-operation of all the class. Going to the class
party is one of the best ways of showing class
spirit. Arts '37 gave a party that was a credit to
the University. Arts '38 will celebrate tonight,
full of freshman enthusiasm.
How about it Juniors, are you going to be
so spiritless and blase that you let these
younger classes beat you?

I am returning to the subject of my very
first Crab for this item. Why have we no
Spanish courses in this University?
There is no language except the Oriental
tongues which is more necessary or practical for us. We used to have Spanish courses,
with good instructors and a large attendance.
What happened to them?
According to my information, which comes
from a reliable source, "politics," and not finances or student preference was responsible
for them being dropped, and the moving spirit
in the elimination is not now with us. Why are
they not restored?
Our history, our commerce and our relations with the great majority of the other countries on this continent demand men with a
knowledge of this language. Why do we get
no instruction in it?
German is a scientific necessity, yet it almost suffered the fate of Spanish at one time,
and for the same reason. Latin can hardly be
eliminated from the curriculum of any university making a pretense of providing a liberal education, but it is of less value to us than
Spanish would be. Why does it continue on
the calendar when Spanish is not there?
Greek also is valuable, but even less so than
Latin. French is the only flourishing language
on the campus, yet not one in 500 of us ever
use it after we graduate. Twenty per cent, of
our grads could and would use Spanish to their
own and their country's advantage.
Why are we not taught Spanish?
The Women's Undergrad are putting on a
pep meet Monday, and they are going to do it
entirely with local talent—campus talent.
This is one of the most encouraging bits of
news that have reached these crustacean ears
Lo! these many moons.
At the best, pep meetings are an inane business, but I am glad that at last one portion of
the student body has seen the light and realizes that there is a possibility of organizing
better and brighter entertainment on the cam
pus itself than can possibly be found in cheap
dance bands and blatant four-a-day hoofers
with more SA than technique.
From what little I have seen of the co-ed
population they have the one, and may be capable of developing the other. I cannot say
whether their performance will actually be an
improvement on the rather pitiful exhibitions
that I have witnessed (part of, usually) so far,
but they at least have got hold of a bright idea.
I hope they make a good job of it.
While we are on the subject of the faculty
(as we were at the beginning of this column)
why do the various professors and lecturers
not adopt a standard form for essay work?
Looking back over five essays which I
wrote last term I see that not one of the instructors call for the same form, yet four of
them are in the same department.
One wants a bibliography in a certain
shape. The next doesn't. One wants critical
notes, another doesn't. One wants footnotes
placed in the text, another doesn't. One wants
a plan of the essay, another doesn't.
It is very simple for a professor to remember what he asks for. It is a lot more difficult
to sort out the requirements of half-a-dozen,
each with his own pet system.
I know it has, and will, cost me marks, but
I am likewise independent, and have evolved
MY own pet essay form, and I shall stick to it
until the powers that be manage to settle on
uniform specifications.   It saves a lot of worry.
And like all the rest, I am convinced that
mine is decidedly the best.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
We feel that the article entitled
"Gospel Truth," which appeared In
Tuesday's issue, was unworthy of a
university paper and an offense to
good taste. Many of us believe that
the Bible and the Christian Faith
are sacred and should be omitted
from jests.
There are many subjects more suited to genuine humour and we trust
that in future only such will be
printed. In writing this we are positive that not only dj we express
the opinion of our group on that
Bible parody but also the ideas of
other students.

for its candidate. He Is none other
Here he tells his own graphic story
of his decision to run:
"My friends, I was sitting In my
little frat house one night close to
the Christmas exams, studying for
my fourteenth writing of English 2.
After hours of this ceaseles labor,
I looked up startled by a noise.
Through the air on a flying trapese,
la la la, flashed a wlng-jtng—the ancestral weapon of Chang Suey! Suddenly he appeared before me together with Oscar Scribblewell and

none other than little Maybele Mc-
Gllllcudy, with cud in one cheek,
Clementina, R.A.P.—in t'hort, all the
ghosts of those former Muck characters killed by the ru»hless editorial
pencil. Forming a circle, they began
a deep chant which  fil'.eo  me with
awe and respect and the thought that
Welsh rarebit is no repast for me.
The mystic call for an appearance of

He spoke: "Rufus," be said. "You
will run for Council this sprig (he
had a alight cold In the head). You
are the predestined candidate. As a
sign, you shall fail Engllsn 2 a fourteenth time." the Apparitions vanished.
I fell back into my chair, exhausted,
Next day, I went in to my exams.
Just as the mysterious figure had
stated, I failed. That night, though
my sleep was tortured by visions of
an avenging, nose pulling Sedgewick,
I was strangely elated. I was a man
of destiny."
There you have his s+cry. Here is
his platform:
1. Abolition of busses and substitution of sardine cans. Although not
quite as effective, they accomplish
the same result at a far cheaper rate.
2. Lunch service in tha stacks. Than

Out Of Senior B
Hoop Playoff:
Varsity bowed out of this season's
Senior B hoop picture last Monday
night. With 50 seconds to go, Johnny
Keith climaxed a Phone rally by letting go a wild one handed fling that
swished through the hoop to give the
Telephones tho game by one slim
point, 21-20, and with it went the
division two championships of the
G.V.A.A. league.
It was a tough game for Varsity
to lose, as they led for the whole
route, but due to lack of substitutes,
four men being on the sick or injured list, could not keep up the fast
pace indefinitely and were finally
forced to admit defeat.
Stokvis started the Blm^nTTfold's
off on the right foot and sunk a nice
one from the side. In tho first half
Varsity worked the ball around well
and held what advantage there was.
At the breather Varsity was leading
The second half began to roughen
up a bit, Downie of the Telephones
being the chief offender. With 8 minutes to play and Varsity leading 19-

struggle, Varsity trying for all they

Once More U.B.C. Will Play
Chinese Students
Vancouver soccer's best drawing
card—Varsity and Chinese Students-
will meet again Saturday on Cambie
to decide who will earn the right to
advance ln the Mainland Cup series.
The game Is billed for 3 p.m., with
referee Goodall In charge.
Despite the fact that the Thunderbirds made then* Oriental opponents
look almost ridiculous last week,
when the Chinese forwards fired exactly two shots on Varsity's goal during the regulation period, and did no
better in the overtime, the Ubysonlans
were nevertheless mighty lucky to
score the equilizer when they did; another 20 seconds and it would have
been too late!
Wolfe and Quayle Return
Tomorrow, Coach Charlie Hitchens
will have none of their "close shaves,"
and what with Bill Wolfe and Dan
Quayle back in the game, expects his
Blue Boys to go places and take the
Chinese along.
In the curtain-raiser at 1:15 p.m.,
Ernie Roberts' Chilliwack schoolboys
will tangle with the Province Bluebirds in the first round of the Juvenile Provincial Cup.

U.B.C. Lead
At Half Time
After being down by eleven points
at half time before the onslaught of
what looked like a perfect team, the
New Westminster Adanacs came back
with a complete reversal of form to
win the first of five playoff games for
the League title.
Never has there been such a contrast between two halves of a basketball game. The half time score was
24-11 in favour of Vanity, but when
the final bell rang the scoreboard told
a 34-30 Adanac tale. Varsity's combination and screening plays were
clicking to perfection, and their long
shots seldom missed—in the first half.
In the second canto the Collegian defence weakened while the Royallte
fast-passing attack worked perfectly,
as the defence tightened up to hold
a frantic Varsity offence to six small
Within a few minutes of the time
the game opened Varsity had run up
a 13-4 lead on the good work mainly
of Bardsley, Wright and Willoughby.
Fraser was working well for the Adanacs and before the hab! ended had
accounted for seven of his team's eleven points. Bardsley, on the other
hand, had netted ten, but the three
personal fouls he collected as well
might be named as the mam cause for
the student downfall. Coach Barbaree
held him on the bench for the best
part of the second hab!, and although
he sent him on about fifteen minutes
before full time, the skipper was soon
back on the bench again with his
fourth foul.
Willoughby sent Varsity even farther ahead after the interval on a
pretty solo effort, but Fraser's basket
and Mayers' three points showed that
"Toot's" Phillips' half-time grin signified something at least. Willoughby
sank the last Varsity basket of the
evening with a shot from the side,
and then tbe fireworks began.
The New Westminster boys found'
themselves twelve down with about
fifteen minutes to go. Mayers, Matthison and Holmes displayed some beautiful combination for four baskets.
Bardsley was sent back in an attempt
to stem the yel'.ow tide, and sank a

Henderson added another point, but

a point apiece. Matthison's long heave
swished through, and Holmes put his
team ahead with a neat basket.
Bardsley missed a free shot that
would have tied the score just before

Overcoat. Put in car during Arts
'20 Relay.—R. J. Temoiu, Arts Letter
All that the students in the quad
saw wars a board, upon which was
posted the route, and the names of
the various runners. Evrcy four minutes or so, tho pub i.hone would
shrill. Results would be hastily taken
clown by Allan Walsh, unci Norman
DePoe would »ush out. The crowd of
more \han lw."> hundred vould quickly open a path, and the names would
be   hurriedly   written   on   the  board.
"Simple," they would think, if they
thought of the manner in which the
results reached that board. But behind those few hastily cicribblcd words
lies a story—a minor Odyssey.
While the curious crewels were
eagerly gazing at the borrd, the Pep
Club was engaged in a furious rush
to get in the results as quickly as
possible. Several Ultras they narrowly avoided serious accidents, and injuries. Handicapped by the unavoidable lateness of the car which was to
take the boys around the route, they
nevertheless managed to get each lap
result in on time.
Lloyd   Hobden   left   town   at   3:25,
after a hectic rirle arrived at Varsity
ten minutes later, picket up the Pep
Club without even slopping the car,
and rushed clown alonr* tho course
of the race. As tl.ey came to the end
of each lap, he slowed V.\c car down
to about forty , m.p.h. and a man
jumped off. He arrived at Fairview
just as the race started, phoned in
the order of the contestants, anci
sped on his way to pick up his fellow Pepsters.
Accidents Averted
At the end of each iap, the man
stationed there phoned in the leaders
and jumped into the waiting car,
and away they went, ahead of the
race, horn and throttle jammed down,
relying on the "Press Car" sign to
ward off policemen. Two accidents
were narrowly averted when they
came up the wrong side of the Boulevard, which was lined with cars, and
faced a head-on smash with another
car, and again passed between two
cars with less than an inch on either
side of the car, and missed both of
them. All was well, however, and
almost two hundred .students followed the course- of th? race on the
Bent on emulating their now famous rugby and basketball brothers,
ten stalwart ice performers, representing the cream (not from Hector)
of Varsity's hockey talent, are today
Seattle bound. Tonight they will play
a third and deciding game with the
snappy University of Washington
A feature of the series to date is
the evenly balanced strength of the
two teams. The Thunderbirds managed to eke out a 4-3 overtime struggle in the first game at Seattle only to
have the Huskies even It up 2-1 at the
Arena in the return game. As in
these two games, the winner tonight
will probably be the one getting the
breaks. Little or no doubt Is left in
the minds of the boys as to the result
of the coming tussle. As Maurice
Lambert puts it, "Our passing and
shooting has improved so much that
the Huskies won't recognize us as
being the same team, We should take
them easily and keep that cup on the
Cup Won in 1923
The cup referred to is a handsome
trophy that has almost become a landmark in the Varsity trophy case. It
was away back in 1923 that a smart
team representing U.B.C. proudly rode
home from Seattle with the cup. This
is the first year since then that a series has been attempted.
Taylor Out?
It is still somewhat doubtful at this
writing who will make the trip. Clarence Taylor, the classy winger from
Jasper, is a member of a junior team
in the city and may have to play for
them. Some of the other boys feel
that they cannot spare the lectures.
If all difficulties are ironed out this
is the team that will face the Maroon
and White team tonight. Ronnie Andrews will again be between the
pipes, Lambert and Lea will hand out
the body checks, while Trussel, Little
and Taylor will form the starting forward line. Sitting on the bench ready
for action will be Cudmore, relief de-
fenseman, and a second string forward
line of Hager, Livingstone and Burnett.
Tomorrow night at the University
gym. the Thunderbird basketball
squad will play their second game
against Adanacs for the Lower Main-
