Final Try-Outs
Decide Cast
For Play
AT THE final try-outs for parts
in the Players' Club spring play
all parts but four were assigned.
The try-outs took place on Monday,
February 9 in the Auditorium, leading roles being assigned to Dorothy
McKelvie, Nancy Symes, Margery
Ellis, and William Cameron.
The play is Noel Coward's brilliant
comedy, "The Voung Idea," and is
concerned with the attempts of the
modern generation to straighten out
the affairs of their much-divorced parents. The parts of Gerda and Sholto
are to be taken by Margery Ellis and
Alf Evans, understudied by Betty
Wilson and Jack Sargent. Their father is played by William Cameron;
understudy, Tom Groves. His first
wife, Jennifer, has been assigned to
Dorothy McKelvie; understudy, Alice
Morrow; his second, Cicely, will be
taken by Nancy Symes; understudy,
Mary Darnbrough. Cicely is carrying
on an affair with young Rodney Masters, played by Chris Taylor; understudy, Don McTavish.
Other parts assigned are: Priscilla,
"a lady who hunth and lithpth," Ann
Ferguson; "bounding Julia," Betty
Buckland; Sybil, Ruth Bostock; Dorothy Colledge is understudying all
three parts. R. I. Knight is playing
the part of Eustace, who is concerned
with the genealogy of his friends. St.
John Madeley and H. Tull are still
competing for Claud, Priscilla's
comical lover, and Archie Dick and
Jack Ruttan for Hiram Walkin, a
big business man from America, who
is on the point of marrying Jennifer.
Minor parts of a butler and maid are
still to be arranged.
The play is scheduled for production at the University Theatre on
March 11-14 inclusive, and tickets will
be on sale shortly. Performances are
also planned for Cloverdale and at
New Westminster on the 9th and
possibly the 10th.
Vancouver citizens were given the
oportunity to see the experiments in
which the students of the University
are interested at the regular weekly
meeting of the Vancouver Institute,
held in Science 200 Monday.
Prof. G. M. Shrum, of the Physics
Department, spoke on "The Electron;
What is It?" to a large audience. The
experiments used to illustrate the lecture were set up and performed by
five students honoring in Physics:
Hebb, McCulloch, Lawrence, Creelman, and Young.
"The experiments shown here tonight form the greatest ai'ray of experiments that I have ever seen at a
public demonstration," stated Dr.
Shrum. "I am certain that some of
the experiments performed here tonight have never been seen in Canada
before," he continued.
Dr. Shrum outlined the rise of various theories that have been put forth
concerning the electron, and its relation to natural phenomena such as
light, heat, sound, and electricity.
"Its most important work in the universe is that it makes possible the
combination of carbon with various
other elements to form the organic
life cells," said the speaker. The lecture was illustrated with experiments
of a more simple nature than those
that followed.
After the speaker had concluded,
the five students showed their experiments, the result of weeks of work in
the laboratory.
McCulloch and Lawrence projected
on the screen the Michelson White
Light Fringes, basis of the theory of
relativity. The apparatus was adjusted to 1   10,000,000 of an inch.
Another experiment showed the interference of waves on the surface of
mercury. The projection of this interference on the screen was clearer
than any of the Physics professors
had ever seen.
Malcolm   Hebb   showed   a   Geiger
Counter, by means of which the Alpha
particles emitted by radium and other

No Action  Taken
At Meeting
Of A.M.S.
The students of the Alma Mater
Society decided to confine themselves
at the meeting of Friday, February 13,
to learning the facts of the case concerning the suspension of the Editor-
in-Chief and discussing them. Win
Shilvock introduced a motion to this
effect which was carried by a majority of 035 to 421. An amendment
"that no person have the right to
muzzle the expression of this meeting" was defeated as out of order.
There was a charge of railroading
but it was later withdrawn.
In the discussion that followed Earl
Vance outlined the case and Maurice
DesBrisay quoted opinions of prominent members of the A. M. S. Alan
Torld stated that the policy of the U.
B. C. should be the policy of the
faculty. Discussion lasted for two
hours. Immediately after adjournment the president called another
mctting, to vote over the caution fees
to the Stadium Fund.
Grantham Offers. Explanation
And Apology To President;
Re-Instatement Follows
THE following statement prepared by the Students' Council
with the assistance of the Alma Mater Society's legal adviser, has been accepted by Ronald  Grantham,  Editor-in-
Chief of the Publications Board.   President Klinck also regards
the settlement as satisfactory.
"Ronald Grantham, editor of the Ubyssey, student publication of the University of British Columbia, has expressed to President Klinck his regrets for failing to carry out the orders issued
by the President, and will be reinstated tomorrow, according to a
statement issued by Don Hutchison, President of the Students'
Council, last night.
Application has been made by the student editor for the withdrawal of his appeal to Senate from the President's order.
In a letter to the President of the University Grantham made
it clear that his failure to carry out the President's orders was
entirely due to a misunderstanding of the President's instructions, and not to any wilful desire to be disobedient. The President has accepted this explanation and apology and will reinstate
Grantham accordingly. The text of Grantham's letter is as follows :
"Referring to my letter of the 13th of February, I
would like you to know that I intended to convey to you
my regret for failing to carry out your orders of February 9th. This was entirely due to a misunderstanding of
your instructions, for which I am sincerely sorry, and not
to any wilful desire to be disobedient.
I will be obliged, therefore, if you will consider my letter
of February 13th withdrawn."
The President of the Student body explained that President
Klinck referred to the Faculty.Council of the University an editorial entitled "Criticism from Above" appearing in the Student
Publication, to which objection had been taken. This editorial
which was the only one referred to the Faculty Council concerned
the relations of students and the Faculty. Upon referring the
matter to the Faculty Council President Klinck's order to the student editor was to ensure that no criticism of the Faculty or University, or its policy, or of the Provincial Government should be
published before the Faculty Council had considered the matter
referred to it by the President.
After receipt of the President's order the Student Paper refrained from editorial comments but permitted the opinions of a
number of students to be published. Grantham was suspended
by President L. S. Klinck from the University for a period of two
weeks, and as a protest the Publications Board decided to suspend
publication of the Student Paper.
The action of the President in suspending Grantham had no
relation to a re«ent editorial which appeared in the Student Publication criticising the policy of the Provincial Government with
regard to limitation of attendance. Any impression to the contrary which had arisen is erroneous, stated Mr. Hutchison.
Mr. Hutchison stated that he had been informed by President
Klinck that the status of the Student Publications Board will be
considered immediately by the Faculty Council of the University
which will call upon the Students' Council and the Publications
Board for their representations as to the relation of the Publications Board to the Alma Mater Society and the governing bodies
of the University.
The Publications Board will voluntarily refrain from any
criticism of the University, the Faculty or the Government until
the decision of the Faculty Council as to the status of student
publications has been delivered."

valued as a keepsake. Please return
to Vorna Bolton or the Bookstore.
A motion was passed to submit all
caution fees to the Stadium fund at
a second meeting held Friday, February 13, immediately after the first
one adjourned. Don Hutchison stated
the proposal made by Council had
not been carried because there was
not a quorum at the meeting on February 10.
The main clause of the motion read:
"That all caution money be turned
over to the Stadium fund." A clause
providing exemption was included.
In accordance with it, the Students'
Council office will be open every day
between the hours of 12 and 1 p.m.,
from Saturday, February 14, to Friday, February 20, to students not
wishing to forfeit their caution money.
Education Prexy
Resigns Post
Maurice Desbrisay, President of
Education '31, submitted his resignation to the Education class on Wednesday, February 11, at a special meeting held late in the afternoon. A motion was passed which read:—
"That, according to the wishes of
the president, we accept his resignation with much regret."
Desbrisay stated that he wished to
support the suspended Editor-in-Chief
of the "Ubyssey" and that he would
feel more free to express his own personal opinions if he did not occupy an
executive position in the class.
Since the president could later be
re-elected, and since there would be
little executive work in the next few
weeks, the office is left vacant. Thelma Mahon, vice-president, will assume the duties of the president.
Projected Alma Mater Meeting
Cancelled By Common Consent
The Alma Mater Meeting, which was to have been held today, has been cancelled because it was considered inadvisable to
hold it at this time. A majority of those who signed the petition
have withdrawn their names.
The sponsors of the meeting feel that the proper time to call
an Alma Mater meeting will be after the whole matter has been
discussed by the Faculty Council in conjunction with the Students'
Council and the Publications Board.
More Canvassers
For Final Efforts
Demands Schultz
"It's no use quitting before you've
finished," Charlie Schultz states, commenting on the final drive for funds
for Hie stadium.
C. L. Williams is giving his entire time to the downtown canvassing
part of the work. At first he held
meetings on the campus to explain
high pressure salesmanship to campaigners. About thirty students had
been selected for this work. Later the
attendance at these meetings was so
small that they were abandoned.
Gradually the number of workers has
dwindled until there are about seven
members collecting for it.
The directors have a list of 2000
prominent business executives. They
have divided these into lists of about
twenty each, in such a way that no
one canvasser will have far to walk.
The University downtown headquarters are at 014 Hall Building, at the
corner of Howe and Pender. According to Schultz, if the students will only
get behind this last effort, it will
mean just the difference between success and failure. It is now a matter of
three days. Schultz thinks that in a
University of 1851 students it is
rather pitiful that we can't get enough
students to ask for the money that is
required. Seven students cannot do
all the work. If everyone would volunteer for only an hour's work, the campaign would require no more. If the
students won't give the time, they
mustn't expect businessmen to give
them both time and money. The campaign must end Saturday, for the
Community Chest Drive starts that
day. As an added inducement, twenty-
five dollars is offered to the student
who collects the most money.
Dilatory Seniors
Delay Work
On Totem
AU students who have not had their
picture taken for the "Totem" must
do so immediately and all proofs
must be  returned promptly.
The following students have not
turned in a write-up for the "Totem:"
Arts—Nelson Allen, Geoffrey Beall,
Marguerite Boulton, Norma Brent,
Alan Campbell, Beatrice Chisholm,
Joseph Cianci, Norma Clarke, Eleanor Everall, James Gibson, Maisie
Graham, Francis Hardwick, Malcolm
Hebb, Clara Johnsen, Alice Morrow,
Janet Owen, Frances Reece, Kathleen
Siddall, Beatrice Stanley, Roy Temple, Harold Todd, Earle Vance, Arthur Russell Wilson; Science—
Charles Rumsey, Milton Saunders,
Dalton Watson; Commerce—George
Ballentyne, Thomas Burgess, Jordon
Guy, Margaret Jean Spencer; Agriculture—Richard   Mayers.
Work on the "Totem" is being held
up until the above people turn in their
write-ups. No changes can now be
made in the "lay-out" without causing great expense and the delaying of
the publication of the book for several
weeks, so the above students must
turn in their write-ups whether they
intend to graduate now or not. Several Club write-ups, and the class
write-ups of Science '32, Agriculture
'33 and '34, and Arts '31 have not
been turned in. The "Annual" editor
will be in her office between 9 to 11
on Thursday morning to confer with
any delinquents who think that they
have a good reason for not having
their write-up in the "Totem" this
Miss M. L. Bollert, Dean of
Women, has left to attend a
convention of the American Association of Deans of Women
in Detroit. On her return she
will visit the University
Women's Club and the Women's
Canadian Clubs in Toronto,
Winnipeg, Regina and Calgary
where she will speak on the
Pan-Pacific Women's Association conference which she attended last summer in Honolulu.
City Musicians
Augment Fund
By Concert
A THRONG of music lovers, many
of whom were University students, filled the Crystal Ballroom
of the Hotel Vancouver on Monday
evening at the recital given by Mr.
Kenneth Ross in aid of the Varsity
Stadium Fund. More than $300 was
added to the fund.
Keith Kimball, a Junior student,
rendered Chopin's "Nocturne in F
Minor" delightfully. He was followed
by Miss Isobel Montgomery in two
pieces by Debussy, "La Fille aux
Cheveux de Lin" and "Prelude in A
Ernest Greene played "Toccota and
Fugue in D Minor," Bach-Taussig,
and Elfie Tussa, who is known to University students by her fine performance at the last Musical Society recital, played the Shulz-Evler arrangement of "By the Beautiful Blue
Danube." Sara Eugenie Davidson
gave the "Rhapsodie in C" by Doh-
nanyi, and Mabel Winterbottom, A.
T.C.M., played "Liebesfreud," Kreisler '
Helen Burton, accompanied by Kenneth Ross at the second piano, played
the Allegro movement of Bach's "Concerto in D Minor," and Thelma San-
ford, A.T.C.M., followed with "Ballade in G Minor" by Chopin. Clifford
Kenneth Ross at the second piano
gave a very fine performance of
Liszt's "Hungarian Fantasy." Beu-
lah Schuldt, A.T.C.M. chose as her
two numbers "Theme Varie, Op. 16,
No. 3" by Paderewski and "Capric-
cio," Op. 2, No. 4 by Dohnanyi.
Noble Kendall followed with Chopin's "Fantaisie in F Minor," and
Mrs. John Norton, accompanied by
Kenneth Ross at the second piano,
played the "Moderato" movement of
Rubinstein's "Concerto in D Minor."
The assisting artists were Marion
Copp, Contralto, who gave a delightful group of English folk songs and
Sidney Adams, baritone, whose numbers were "Tierra Alegre" by Schipa,
"The Hills of Home," by Fox, and
Mana Zucca's, "I Love Life."
Ronald Grantham, Editor-in-chief
of the Ubyssey, who was suspended
from the University for two weeks,
for disobeying an order from the
President which he did not completely
understand, has been reinstated. He
will return to the University today.
In a letter to the acting editors,
Grantham states his position.
He writes:—
"The matter of my suspension has
been arranged as follows: I have
apologized to President Klink for not
obeying his order, due to a misunderstanding of its full application. *ie
has reduced my suspension, so that I
shall be back on the campus on
Wednesday. The most important
point—namely, the freedom of the
student press—is not setled, but the
Faculty Council, with the aid of reports from the Students' Council and
the Publications Board, will prepare
a report on the status of the Publications Board. This will be done as
soon  as  possible."
Farm Marketing
Outlined To Club
The four cardinal points of the producer were outlined by Mr. W. L.
Mackin in his address on "The Dairy
Sales Adjustment Act" to the Agricultural Club, Tuesday noon.
The main points stressed by the
speaker were: the consumer of agricultural products pays enough when
he buys it; the producer in co-operative marketing must handle the surplus products; in carrying the food
from producer to consumer, nothing
but the direct cost should be tolerated,
while competition is the life of trade,
it is the death of profits.
Mr. Mackin went on to state that
since 11U0 the quality of milk has
improved, in fact in those years the
winter shortage was helped out by
the supply of rain. The price has not
varied a great deal.
In conclusion the speaker stated
that if the Dairy Sales Adjustment
Act were repealed, and the price of
milk lowered, there would be many
farmers put out of business. 2

"The Pirates of Penzance"
For their fifteenth annual spring performance the Musical
Society this year presents "The Pirates of Penzance" on the niffhts
of February 26-28. This well known Gilbert and Sullivan opera
has been a happy choice on the part of the advisory committee
and it is to be hoped that the talents of the cast will be equal to
the vehicle.
Sustained practices during the past few weeks indicate that
the Musical Society is determined to make this their most successful performance. In the efforts to provide good music in the
University, a policy which the Musical Society has followed more
or less successfully since its inception, the Society is assured of
the support of all students.
As far as the cause of good music is concerned, many students regard the performance of the "Garden of the Shah" last
year as a retrogressive step. The successful staging of the "Pirates
of Penzance" will redeem the Musical Society from any stigma
connected with the preceding performance.
As usual at this time of the year, complaints issue from the
"Totem" staff denouncing those delinquents who have not yet
turned in write-ups or had their pictures taken. This year the
state of affairs presents no exception.
Reports reach us that there some thirty odd write-
ups still missing from the Senior personnel; also that several
members of '31 have not yet been photographed. Another detriment to the progress of the work rests with the class and club
presidents, several of whom have not yet submitted write-ups for
their respective organizations.
It is time the students realized the work involved in editing
the Annual. The "Totem" editor must co-operate with the photographer, the engraver, and the printer, and any delay in the work
of the University staff means delay in the work at all of these
If the members of the Senior class would consider the
amount of work involved in editing the Annual and co-operate to
the extent desired, the success of the "Totem" would be assured.
Not only this, but work would be completed at an earlier date,
and the "Totems" be ready for distribution before examination

Ten Years Ago
From the Ubyssey of February
3rd, 1921
P. N. Whitley, Editor-in-chief
denounced the student body in a
vituperative editorial for its
lack of support of the 'Ubyssey'.
He said that less than one third
of the copy for the issue is in
the hands of the editors by the
deadline, which is nine o clock
Tuesdays, despite the fact that
the most recent event reported
is on a Saturday. He complains
that the 914 students only contribute about one tenth of the
copy   in   any   issue,   sometimes
even less.

Fun and Fundamentals
When the brrrrrr of the alarm
roused me from my deep slumbers on
Saturday morning, I had a strange
feeling that this was no ordinary day.
I had two reasons for thinking this;
first, that my alarm had awakened
me, and secondly that I had jumped
out of bed immediately, rather than
taking my usual after-having-been-
called 20-minute sleep. As I was setting the breakfast table my presentiment of unusuallity was suddenly substantiated. It was St. Valentine's
I rushed off to wash and dress in a
hurry, for the mailman comes at 8:30
and I wanted to be fully arrayed in
my meagre best to receive the tokens
of admiration from what few friends
I might possess.
During breakfast everything went
wrong. When I poured the milk on my
porridge it slopped on the table, I
was so nervous; I burnt the toast
badly; I even sugared my coffee
twice 1
My ears were strained for the
clump, clump, clump of the postie's
feet on the steps. He usually comes
just as I start my second piece of
toast, and now I was folding my napkin. Wasn't he going to come today?
I tried to find me some excuse to dawdle a little as I was clearing the
table. Damn!. I almost dropped that
saucer as I heard him coming up the
stairs. Flop, ffop,—two letters dropped to the floor. Was one for.me? I
picked one up—an advertisement
from the Hudson's Bay about blankets, of all things; the other a belated
bill from my dentist. Blast 1 Apparently I'm the new president of the
Social Failures Club.
F. and F. Editor's Note: This pathetic effusion has been submitted to
me as an example of unrelieved tragedy, probably of the Russian school.
I think it only fair to add, however,
that the author is by no means the
president of the S.F.C., but on the
contrary—I'll be seeing him at the
Arts '32 party.

The Bayreuth recording of the
"Ride of the Valkyrie" showed the
Ereatest demands made upon singers
y Wagner's operas as well as the long
distance which orchestral work had
advanced since the days of Bach.
Strauss' "Der Rosenkravaller" was
chosen as an example of modern German music.
Some people are born dumb, some
acquire dumbness, but I have dumbness forced upon me. Yesterday, I
was full of fine phrases, but now alas,
I am dumb.
Yesterday I was requested, nay commanded to write this column. And
only since yesterday have I realized
how columnists must suffer. The
insatiable column must be filled. But
with what?
All budding writers feel the urge
to burst into song. They try frantically to impress their innermost
thoughts and Impulses into obscure
verse forms and clumsy sonnets. I
was strongly tempted to write an "Ode
to Spring," but foggy weather
wouldn't allow it. Instead the following "Lines written in a dense fog,"
were thrust upon me.
While seated in the library's sheltered

fuddled dome,
"Where are those cards with
"SILENCE"   on   them,   now?"
No more we shrink before that awe-
some word,
That ominous stand upon each table
With silent warning to forbid the
From thundering in that sanctimonious shade.
Where are those signs that once be-
chilled the soul?
We wondered if they'd passed from
human ken.
But now we know they were the
cherished goal
Of many a fratman to adorn his den.
So now take heed all ye that wish to
The force that made those grim
reminders roam,
They now display their cryptic message stern

will be entertained on Thursday and
Saturday respectively, at their annual class parties.
The Third year class will hold a
dance in the form of a "basket social"
in the Alma Academy, the informal
dress ranging from gingham and overalls to sport costumes. The executive
announces that no one in evening
dress will be admitted. Each couple
will bring their own lunch basket. The
hall will be decorated with agrarian
produce and farmers' implements,
while the orchestra will also be attired in rustic costume. The executive
handling the affair are Cecilia Long,
Enid Wyness, Ken Beckett and Robert Ward. Tickets will be distributed
at noon to-day from the Box Office.
The Frosh party will be a more formal affair at Lester Court. Among
those in charge of the programme are
Marjorie Ellis, Nancy Carter, Mary
McLean, Myrtle Sutton, Doug Brown,
Stuart Keats and Alfie Allen.
Lending their patronage to the

radio-active substances can be counted. A system of radio-amplification
was used to magnify the sound caused
by the bombardment of the electrons.
"The disintegration of the pieces of
uranium used tonight has been going
on for hundreds of thousands of
years," said Dr. Shrum.
The Tesla Coil built by Creelman
and Young in the laboratory here was
used to produce a spark 85 cms. long,
and to illuminate a neon tube held in
the range of the waves sent out by
this discharge. A high-frequency current of 1,060,000 volts was passing
through the apparatus.
A bit of humor was supplied by the
use of a photo-electric cell operated by
a ray of light across the doorway.
Each person coming through the door
cut off the light from the cell, and
rang a bell, to his evident surprise.
Later, the same apparatus was used
to light a lamp and start a fan when
the light was cut off. "This is the method used in the Hudson River tunnel
to count the cars passing through,"
said the speaker. "By this means, a
man can have control of any amount
of energy," continued the speaker.
The Thyratron tube used was the first
shipped out of the United States since
its development in the General Electric Laboratory last summer.
In conclusion, Dr. Shrum said that
the lecture was only made possible by
the tireless efforts of the Physics students whose experiments were such a
great success.

Three years went by, and, in accord-
The more I live, the more I see,
And realize my own importance
As senior at the U.B.C.
I have'been soaked when li'l freshies
Were purified in lily pond:
As Sophomore withstood all clashes
That only tied us in closer bond.
I felt so graceful and attractive
When first I donned my Junior gown,
But now I find that most effective
Is Senior's intellectual frown.
The Freshmen free of all corruptions
In class are silent as in a tome;
But thanks to Seniors' interruptions
It's more like a reception room.
Those days are gone when I have
In front of profs, my poor heart sank
I've  often   on   my  essays   gambled,
'Ere I obtained this noble rank.
I've run to class with bell precisely,
I've had my reading up to date;
I've acted anything but wisely
Before I reached my present state.
I feel more proud and much more
Than if I had long pedigree;
For think all those who read this

Heavenly Story Told in Metre
Of Wrongs Righted by St. Peter
After a funeral a Chinese was asked, "why do you put food on the

Somnolent Pubbitei
Roused by Roosters
Monday morning at nine o'clock
saw the office of the Publications
Board in a state of holy calm. Certain members of the editorial staff
were deep in such tomes as the Municipal Corporation Act, Pope's Essay
on Criticism, and the Vancouver Sun.
Suddenly the silence was shattered
by a piercing sound. The heads of
the editorial board were raised in
consternation. The sound was re
peated, startingly close. It was an
ordinary enough sound, in its place,
but its place, one would think, was
not outside the windows of the editorial offices of the "Ubyssey."
"Has something escaped from over
at the Aggies?" someone wondered.
A large red truck had made its appearance outside the Administration building. A reporter with a
nose for news dashed out to reconnoitre. The mystery was solved. No
one was subtley insulting the 'Ubyssey" by implying that the staff needed
waking up. Nor was the staff in the
peculiar condition that a late party
the night before might induce. No
one was "hearing things."
It was only two large and bellicose red roosters, apparently being
exiled from the Aggie quarters for
insubordination, startling the neighborhood with a robust "Cock-a-doodle-

Historic Run Recalls Former Campaign
Runners and would-be runners will match heels tomorrow
when the historic Arts '20 relay will be staged between the old
buildings and the new, from Fairview to the wilds of Point Grey.
The marathon will commence at Willow and Twelfth and
Gavin Dirom will fire the gun if it functions properly which will
be unusual. Leo Gansner announces that the grind will start at
8.45 sharp.   That may or may not be so but the prompt arrival
of pavement pounders at their laps
will assist track club officials in their
efforts to operate smoothly.
A special bulletin service managed
by the "Ubyssey" sport staff will enable the campus hordes to keep in
touch with the perspiring toddlers
pace by pace if they last. Results will
be announced by megaphone from the
Council session room.
The usual collection of automobiles
or what have you will follow the
race and a special plea is made to
student drivers to keep clear of the
runners. Be careful. They bite. But
so do the fumes which pour from the
exhausts of cars which insist on preceding many of the, runners.
Advance dope gives the green clad
Freshies a decided edge; in fact they
themselves with their usual modesty
claim that there will be no argument
at all over the first place. Alf Allen
star distance man, will run the third
lap for the yearlings which looks bad
for the opposition since this is the
crucial leg of the afternoon performance. Shatford is also among the '34
entries and will be seeing what he
can do about lap No. 2. Sid Swift
who gained repute by losing his way
in the cross country will tackle the
seventh mile, while the other men are
all above the ordinary standard.
However all this may be the red-
shirts of '33 have a different tale to
tell and are also among the favored.
George Allen and Moorhead (christian name unknown) are two of the
star entries.
The Aggies have a few good runners we are told although not particularly strong all round. Wilf Lee
of hockey fame and Jack Dicks will
carry the burden for the farmers.
And, lest we forget, Leo Gansner,
himself is in this little race. He will
be aided and abetted by seven other
Arts Seniors and can be counted upon
to do one or maybe two startling

Gridders Fight
To 1-1 Draw
Powerful Clubbers He d
In a closely contested struggle at
McBride Park on Saturday, the Varsity Senior City Canadian Rugby
team allowed V. A. C. to hold it to a
1-1 draw. Although the game was
thrilling from a spectator's point of
view, it was not very well played,
being featured by frequent fumbles on
both sides.
Fumbles Frequent
During the first period V.A.C. had
the advantage with play mostly in the
Varsity half of the field. The Clubbers
kept the ball most of the time since
Varsity, being within its own twenty-
five yard line, was forced to kick every
time it got possession.
But in the next quarter the tide began to turn and Varsity began to tear
wide holes in the Clubbers' line. However, after making several first downs
the ball was lost on a fumble just in
time to save the game for V.A.C.
After the half-time kick-off the students continued to press. At this point
Varsity completed a forward pass only
to have it disallowed by the referee
for interference behind the line of
scrimmage. Shortly after this set back
V.A.C. worked a perfect outside kick
which gave them first down on the
Varsity twenty yard line. They were
however, unable to make the necessary yards and the attempted drop
kick failed, making the score 1-0 for
Stung into action by the prospect
of losing an important game, Varsity
woke up and started a march down the
field which was checked only within
fifteen yards of the V.A.C. goal line.
Here Varsity kicked to deadline for
one point, tying the score. After five
minutes more of scrimmage in V.A.C.
territory, Varsity punted again but
the kick was run out by Mercer. The
game ended soon after.
Once again a Blue and Gold team
was defeated—by a social function the
night before a game. Varsity's Tisdall Cup ruggers, their minds filled
with tender wnisperings and the soft
strains of heavenly music were rudely
jostled 3-0 by a group of rather mechanically-minded gentlemen who were
entirely free from any ill effects following a Science Ball.
The U.B.C. aggregation looked very
different from that which took the
measure of the strong Victoria squad,
two short weeks ago. They did not
come to life at all in the first half and
the Ex-Tech boys made good their advantage by scoring what proved to be
the winning points of the game.
Varsity awoke a little in the second
half, but the men could not put the
necessary finishing touches to their
Phil Barrat missed a chance to score
on a drop kick, while Ledingham and
Rogers made gallant but fruitless efforts to score. Ledingham's 40 yard
run in the second half was a bright
spot in the game and fittingly capped
an outstanding performance on the
part of this player. The game ended
in mid field with Varsity on the short
end of a 3-0 count.
Arts '33 stepped out with long
strides to vanquish and whatnot the
Theologs by the magnificent score of
35-17 in the inter-class hoop melee,
Tuesday noon at the Gym.
Paulding decorating the floor at
centre was high scorer for the clay
garnering 15 points and adding them
to the Churchmen's total. He weaved
his way in and out of the opposition
much to their disgust and in his lanky
laconical manner netted the sphere
time after time. For the Sophs Lucas
and Wright combined their efforts to
tally ten markers each.
Biff McLeod attempted the position
of referee and cast a lenient eye on
discrepancies made by the players as
they barged hither and yon on the
The second year aspirants to basketball honors played pretty combinations at times and thus forged ahead
and were leading 17-9 at the half time
whistle. In the second canto the
Sophs made their victory good by
sinking 18 points to the opposition's
8. The game ended when the holder
of the watch, one Aqua by name, decided it was lecture time.
Last Chance Offered
For McKechnie Cup
Varsity meets a strong Vancouver
Rep team in a crucial McKechnie Cup
fixture on Saturday at 3:15 p.m. on
the Brockton Point oval. The collegians can make things very interesting
for the fans by turning in a victory,
because this feat would force a three-
cornered tie between Varsity, Vancouver and Victoria for the first place
standing and thus necessitate at least
three more games being played.
Varsity is staging a plucky uphill
fight for B.C.'s major English rugby
cup and deserves the undivided support of the student body in Saturday's
deciding battle. Information from rival camps assures the dopesters that
both squads are at full strength and
those students who wend their way to
that historic battleground will witness
a game that will remind them of the
famous Miracle Men's comeback

Costain And Todd Net For Students
Alan Todd carved one of those well known niches in the hall
of fame for himself Saturday when he scored the winning goal
five minutes from time to enable the striving senior soccermen
to beat South Hill 2-1 at Trimble Park. Previously Cherub Costain had done a little carving on his own account to equalize the
scores.   Which looks as if Varsity came from behind to win.
They did.
The game was one of those touch
and go affairs. They touch and you go
—to earth. Combination was the
order of the day on both sides and
some pretty soccer was dished up to
roaring multitudes who numbered
fully fifteen strong. Unfortunately
neither side could shoot worth a hoot
and many made to order chances were
The first thrill came fifteen minutes after the start when the referee
took a dislike to Roberts and awarded
a penalty against the Gold and Blue.
The shot was sawed however and the
students breathed again.
Then Costain went for a little walk
by himself and ended by netting the
pill but the dear old ref. was still
feeling out of sorts and adjudged the
score offside.
The Varsity men forced the issue
and Latta finished a glorious run by
crashing a drive against the underside of the bar. The forwards were
working smoothly but hurried shooting mussed up many efforts.
After the boys had partaken of the
usual refreshments they went to it
again and after ten minutes of even
play South Hill scored when a lovely
shot from an angle foiled the college
Things looked bad but who cared?
Not Costain and his merry men for
after many attacks Todd (D) charged
down a clearance by the Hill goalie
and Costain plunked in the ball as it
bounced on the line.
Things seemed set for a draw but
Latta had different ideas. The speedy
winger brought off the best run of
the afternoon from the half way
line and got in his pass as two men
smeared him. Alan Todd, picked up
the pass and placed his shot in the
other corner of the net. Then all was
rejoicing and the game was as good
as over for the Hillmen never had a
chance of getting past Chalmers and
For Varsity the forwards were in
the limelight all day. Latta and
Wright were too speedy for the Blue
half backs while the two Todds and
Costain formed a powerful inside trio.
The backs were always safe while the
halves of whom Cox was the pick
played steady football to hold the
snappy South Hill forwards.
Varsity: McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Wright (H.), Kozoolin, Cox;
Wright (B.), Todd (D.), Costain,
Todd (A.), and Latta.
Varsity senior "A" men's basketball team ended the season in a blaze
of glory when they won their last two
games in convincing style. Last Tuesday at Bob Brown's gymnasium, the
boys in Blue disposed of the hard-
fighting Shores five by a 21-18 score
and on Wednesday the team finished
its schedule by giving the Westminster "Y" team a 47-15 pasting.
Tervo and CampbelllStar
On Wednesday Randy Tervo and Pi
Campbell were shooting in phenomenal fashion and piled up a total of
26 points between them. It seems a
student offered Tervo a reward for
every point he scored and Randy's 15
points just about demolished his bankroll.
Campbell found the checking of the
Westminster guard to his liking and
eluded his check to score 11 points.
Coach Montgomery gave his boys
instructions before the game that
anyone taking a long shot would be
yanked in a hurry. Cy Lee decided to
see how serious the coach was and
tried a long one in the first minute.
Tervo was substituted for Lee. A moment later Larry Nicholson dropped
one in from just outside the foul line.
He was just about to look proud when
Osborne came on and Larry departed
more in sorrow than in anger.
During the last five minutes of the
game Westminster with four men but
Captain Hugh Grant refused to let
Skipper Henderson of the Varsity
team drop a man. As a cynical spectator remarked the "Y" wanted Varsity to get all the practice possible for
the coming playoffs. The motto of the
"Y" team seems to be "anything to
beat the Adanacs."
And speaking of playoffs, the Varsity team should be in the finals about
a week from today and, given a break
from the league the first game should
be in the Varsity gym.
Brains triumphed over brawn in
the inter-classic soccer fissure played
upon Monday noon, and the heavy
frowns of George Grant & Co. finally
were too much for Arts '34.
The game was fast and spurious
with McGregor easily the best man
on both sides, and although the Freshmen did repeated homage before the
seniors' goal, Wrinch, as custodian,
turned them resolutly away. "Browser" Burgess made repeated sorties
against "Bulky" Broadhurst and his
high-kickers, and shortly after pastime the Grantites rolled the pill into
the net over the prostrate form of
Gemmel for the winning counter.
Final score 1-0 for '31.
