Confident that the proposed
"Hit Parade" on Varsity Time
would be a distracting influence, the L.S.E. executive
Monday noon sounded the
death knell of the feature.
The Hit Parade was planned by
Varsity Time workers as being an
Inducement to listeners to tune in
the student program.
Bach week,  two  or three ot the
most popular songs on the campus
were  to  have  been  played  at  the
end  of the  program.
Members ot the L.S.E., who represent clubs that will be featured
on future Varaity Times, threatened that their clubs would not go

Approximately two (2) entries

a simple arithmetical calculation reveals the Information that
the odds are not heavily against
present or future entrants.

Make-up Artist
Declares Co-eds
Lacking In Taste
David Yeddeau, director of the
University of Manltoba'a production, 'Once in a Lifetime," threw
a bombshell Into the relatively
peaceful atmosphere of 'Toba's
co-ed activities with the announcement that, "I was surprised at the obviously poor
grooming of co-eds at the Univer
slty. The feminine members of
the undergraduate body of this
college are to be noted, not for
their beauty, but for their lack of
taste regarding clothes and makeup."
The remark, entirely casual,
and uttered without any mallei
ous Intention has aroused the
feminine membera of the University to an  unprecedented pitch.
Mr. Veddeau, a man of suave
sophistication, and well known In
Winnipeg as a make-up artist. Is
considered something of an authority on women's clothes and
make-up. He haa been a dramatlo teacher in the Winnipeg
schools and for two seasons was
adjudloator in the Manitoba Dramatlo  League.
First Big Success
Since 1931
Major sport on the University
campus crashed through the Homecoming celebrations with a grand
slam, the flrst in almost seven years
of U.B.C. sport history.
The 1937 trump hand held aces
in English Rugby, Canadian Football and Soccer, as opposed to the
1931 version of Basketball, Canadian Football and Soccer.
Parallels are evident in the Canadian Football games of today and
seven years ago, both rough, bitter
battles, with the Blue and Gold just
a little superior, or a little more
determined, for the winning points.
This year's sport slam is all the
more significant for ita jinx-breaking properties. Canadian football,
"Winless Wonders" of four weary
years standing, have proved themselves definitely by taking two
games in succession, under adverse
conditions, and against a most
formidable opponent.
Soccer, too, has cracked a jinx of
at least one year's standing by defeating the determined Abbotsford-
ers decisively, providing what the
Ubyssey of March 10, termed
"Sweet Revenge  for  Soccermen."
But for spectacular scoring, the
'37 Rugby aggregation completely
outshine anything in the past seven
seasons, with its crushing total of
77 points to 3, in two games, and
the record of an uncrossed line in
those games. The three points
against this staggering sum were
garnered by a penalty kick.

High C. O. T. C. Registration
Due To World Unrest
More students have enrolled for
military training with the C.O.T.C.
since the opening of the present
term than in nny similar period
since the World War, according to
reports received from the Corps orderly   room.
"Disturbed world conditions" are
believed to be responsible for the
increased number of recruits. More
than 52 freshmen and newcomers
to the campus have enrolled this
year, while about 45 upper classmen will continue training. A
number of promotions have been
made due to the unusual size of this
year's corps, and uniforms are growing scarce.
In addition to the usual training
period  of ten days  in  Work  Point
Barracks, Esquimau, at Christmas,
the C.O.T.C. is planning a program
of one-day manoeuvres to be held
at various points in the FraBer Valley and lower mainland to study
tactics necessary in defending B.

The   preparatory   and   follow-up
work   of   a   conference   brings   the
greatest results to the entire student  body.     Knowing  this, the  N.C.
U.S.   Co-ordination   Committee   has
instituted  four major lines of activity  to  help make  the Influence of
the  National  Conference at Winnipeg   this   Christmas,   of   maximum
importance   to   U.B.C.  as  a  whole.
These are as follows:

Controversy Too
WINNIPEG, .Nov. 2 (WIPU) —
With the resolution that, "the C.
O.T.C. should be abolished," as the
subject of an inter-faculty debate,
a controversy was started on the
campus of the University of Manitoba when  the affirmative  won.
The affirmative contended that
the military spirit should not be
fostered in a place which is regarded as the centre of culture, while
the negative claimed that since
Canada would have an army regardless of the C.O.T.C, the university
should supply it with intelligent

Alumni Association
Is Co-operative
A desire to co-operate with U.
B.C. atudenta In "whatever they
may undertake thla year" waa expressed by the new president of
the Alumni Association, Milton
Owen, at the annual meeting of
the graduates Prlday evening.
Then, and throughout Home-
oomlng celebrations, graduates
more than once declared that
they were Intending to be "right
back of the students."
Whether Owen's declaration
had anything to do with the fact
that the alumni ended the past
year with a bank balanoe of S426
was  not  explained.
Films, Plays, Win
Loud Acclaim
Motion pictures of the U.B.
C. contingent leaving for
France in 1916, of the first
congregation of the university, and of the "on to Point
Grey" campaign and parade
in 1922 brought back fond
recollections to a loyal audience ot "Old Grads" at annual
Homecoming   Theatre   Night
in the Auditorium on Saturday.
Graduates and undergraduates
alike thrilled to the splendid exhl-"
bltlon of co-operative spirit shown
by the students of '22, and tbere
were tears rolling ln the eyes of
some aa they recognised faces in
the passing parade of U.B.C.
There was a tenseness in the silence as a transcription of the
"Varsity Time" dramatization of U.
B.C. historical highlights was played through, and graduates were
young again as they softly whistled
accompaniment to the quartet
singing varsity songs.
The spirit of '22 lived again on
the campus Saturday night, for the
transcription received a spontaneous ovation which must have
thrilled even the most prosaic sophomore of today.
Milton Owen, newly elected president of the Alumni Association, expressed the mixed feelings of joy
and sadness with which the four
hundred graduates returned to their
Alma Mater for a day, and introduced three other former A.M.S.
presidents. Bill Whlmster, John OH-
ver and  Sherwood  Lett.
Owen conducted the annual alumni roll-call, graduates representing
every year from 1916 to 1937 standing as the year was called.
Dramatic entertainment was
light In texture, but waa handled
with a dslloaoy that waa very appropriate to the medium.
The Mualcal Society offered
four versions of the well-known
"Tinkers' Chorus" from "Robin
Hood," while the Players' Club
offering was "Sham," a ludicrous
aoolal satire with Mary McLeod,
Rob McDougall, Graham Darling
and Art Sager participating In the
Dorwin Baird gave continuity to
the evening's program ln his capacity as master of ceremonies, and
spoke a well organized running
commentary to the silent films.

were produced under the sponsorship of the Extension Department,
headed   by   Dr.  Gordon  Shrum.

A successful Homecoming, the flrst in many a year, was
held on the campus Saturday. Keynote of the reunion of
graduates was expressed by Milton Owen, new president of
the Alumni Association, when he stated that the "old timers"
were more than willing to co-operate with the students in any
venture that might be undertaken.
At the alumni banquet Friday eening, Owen went further.
He declared that all indications pointed to a compaigning on
the campus this year, and that graduates should prepare
themselves to assist.
At the alumni banquet Friday evening, Owen went further.
For the past year it has had a committee on overcrowding,
beating the students themselves in realizing that this is the
* major problem facing the university today.
But today the students do realize the presence of that
problem, and they are nearing the point where they are going
to do something about it. Even an apthetic student body
such as ours often seems, can be awakened when an emer
gency arises, if the emergency is important enough to awaken
students out of their self-contented dreaming.
Dreaming about a new campus, about more buildings and
facilities can go on only for a while. There must come the
time, and it is coming fast, when action of a startling and
spectacular nature will be taken.
Our student body can stand only so much. Today, with
the outspoken support of administration and faculty, the
students are looking across the waters of the Gulf of Georgia
to another dreaming body, sitting under the dome of B. C.'s
beautiful and expensive Legislature Buildings.
We, the students, are now awake and very alive, in the
matter of this overcrowding problem. Next, we must take
steps to wake up that other body, who do not seem to be able
to feel our needs.
Votes are important. Our flrst step should be to impress
the people of this province that the university is in dire need;
then and only then, will we see action from the little group
across the water. For when the voters want it, then will the
university be assisted.
They had a way with them, the student body of 1922. They
realized, as we must now, that there is no use in direct appeal
to government. The best way to reach an M.L.A. is through
the ballot box, and we must affect that ballot box in such a
Way that the only votes cast at the next provincial poll will
be for those men who pledge their honest support to the

By The Beggar Student
** Out of the long, drawn-out S.
CM. controversy in Students' Council has emerged one Important fact,
perhaps overlooked by those who
were Intended to give It their attention.
To see this fact in Its right perspective, one must forget for the
moment that the S.C.M. was in any
way connected with the trouble
that took a month to solve. One
must only remember that a campus
club had stepped out from under the
jurisdiction of council, and was carrying on  entirely  Independently.
This, you can see, would create
a very bad precedent. Por many
years several clubs, notably the
Players, have been praying for independence. They have resented
the fact that council, by Its control
of budgets, can practically dictate
every action  of  the club.
*■* According to Malcolm Brown,
"student government was at stake
In the S.C.M. matter." And perhaps
lt whs. Perhaps council felt its
hold on some of the more influential organisations of the Alma Mater Society was slipping.
Somebody had to be the goat.
And so, from out of the depths
of obscurity, the S.C.M.'s code infraction was dragged, placed on
public view, mulled over by the
councillors, and given "stern treatment."
Nobody was reminded that the
S.C.M. had been breaking the code
for two years, and that previous
councils had side-stepped the issue,
because as one former president
said,  lt  wasn't  worth much.
Nobody noticed that the whole
matter could have been settled
without being aired tn council, and
consequently ln public. Other such
matters have been Ironed out ln
private, but then they have not
been intended as a lesson to would-
be disrupters of "student government."
•      *      •
A lt must be remembered by any
student group that yearns tor Independence that the Alma Mater Society as a whole must function as
one unit. If the Players' Club objects to having its profits used to
bolster up the budgets of smaller
organizations, it must continue to
object or cease  to  function.
Now that the S.C.M. "test case"
Is over, the important features of
the affair can be reviewed and
1. The S.C.M. was most unwise
in evading the A.M.S. code, and ln
choosing an outsider as the recipient of their $1000 position as secretary.
2. Council could have settled
the matter quietly, but chose, probably wisely, to make it an open
case,as a definite warning. It was
not, though, so wise to come to an
almost  meaningless  conclusion.
3. There can be no thought of
any other campus organization
striking out on its own, the A.M.S.
must  be  held   together  firmly.
At last, after much trying, we
have been admitted to
OUT ON that well-known organ-
A LIMB ization, hitherto exclusively composed of
sports writers, known as the Out-
On-A-Limb Club. It seems that last
week we took it upon ourselves to
say something about the Chriatmas
plays. Since then, we have been denounced from all quarters. And
justly, too. The justice of the denunciations arises from the fact
that we made a statement which
was, to say the least, not quite
what we meant. In saying that the
students pay the bills of the Players' Club, we did not wish to imply
that the Alma Mater Society takes
a loss on the club.
But we do contend that a large
part of the admissions paid come
from students, and much of the
remaining gates comes from friends
of students. And so, indirectly,
they do pay the bills.

Of great Interest to many students at University ls the holding
of the Second Annual Exposition of
Advertising and Graphic Arts, during this week, November 4 to 8, at
the  Hotel  Vancouver.
There will be two lectures given
each evening at 8.00 p.m. and 9.00
p.m., and it is hoped that as many
students  as  possible  will  attend.
The two lectures on Nov. 4 are,
"The Technique of Advertising,"
by Mr. Gordon Stephens; and "Expression in Photography," by Mr. J.
Vanderpant. On Nov. 6 they are,
"Newspaper Advertising,' by Mr.
George Cran, and "An Economist
Looks at Advertising," by Professor J.  Friend  Day.
Dr. H. V. Warren, Chairman of
the Lectures Committee, emphasized to the Ubyssey that the lectures are given at absolutely no
cost to the students, and urged all
to  be   present.
The station had its origin in 1922
when   the   commercial   stations   of

The two of them were walking
along, as lovers do; but not along a
country lane or beside a babbling
brook. No, not these two. They
happened to live ln the city and
had to be content with strolling
along the crowded avenues. In
these hard times, going for a walk
was about the only thing the boy
friend could afford.
Well, suddenly she thought she'd
like to khow what the time was, so
she  turned  to  her boy friend.
"What's  the  corrcet  time,   precious?" she asked.
Precious told her to wait a minute and went over and looked in
a pawnshop window. This, naturally, surprised her more than you
can   suppose.
"Why don't yovi look at your own
watch?"   she  queried.
Whereupon he looked squarely
into her blue eyes. "That's exactly
what  I'm   doing,"  he  replied.

Edmonton were very generous ln
giving time to the University for
presenting tin many features that
were desired. In 1927 the University were granted a permit to construct a broadcasting station on the
campus. Since that time CKUA has
extended its operations along all
lines  of  endeavor.
University Has Radio
Outlet of Its Own;
Varied Features
EDMONTON. Alta., Nov. 2 (WIP
U). — The University of Alberta
Radio Station, CKUA, gives to the
people of Alberta an outstanding
public service. It provides a full
schedule of programs that are different from those given through the
regular commercial stations.
The Department of Extension, the
Provincial and Dominion Departments of Agriculture and the Household Economics Department combine ln presenting to the farmers,
housewives and others items of general   interest.
Farmers receive regular stock and
crop reports that are of great assistance to them. Members of the
Faculty give lectures on all topics
throughout the year. Every Thursday is presented a news broadcast
of Varsity  happenings.
This year the Dramatic Club is
sponsoring a new program under
the caption of "Have You Heard."
The presentation is moulded along
the lines of the familiar March of
Robins can fly only 86 miles per
hour, and are easily outdistanced
by the cheetah, who can run 70
miles per hour.
Aa far as the rest of what we
said la concerned,
we repeat: while
the Players' Club
contains out
standing amateur actora (and aome
of the best amateur performances
we have seen have been presented
by the students), they have made
aome blundera in their choice of
Mr. Pat Larsen, president of the
Players' Club, has written a buck-
passing epistle to the editor, in
which he disclaims responsibility
for the choice. He states that the
student executive have the utmost
confidence in the Advisory Board
and their cholcea.
But if this be true, why have the
undergraduates several times in the
past threatened everything from a
strike to downright mutiny when
the Board's choice was not in line
with their own ideas? Especially,
we would like to remind Mr. Larsen
of what went on in the Qreen Room
when "She Stoops to Conquer," was
announced as the Spring play two
years ago.
The Advisory Board, and we aay
this in all due respect to their
opinions, contains a majority of
members whose choice, from their
background and characters, would
naturally fall on the "nice" play.
And while they are fully entitled to
that opinion, it should not be forced
upon a student self-governing club.
We are certain that, besides the
open revolts which have occurred
in the past, several choices have
been accepted in silence, rather
than offend the sensibilities of the
Advisory Board.
The Players' Club is composed of
presumably adult individuals. The
fact that they are in a dramatic
organisation implies that they know
something about the drama, and
that they may have some ideas on
the choice of plays. It seems only
logical that there should be three
or four undergraduate members on
the Advisory Board.
The fact that the Christmas playa
are   a   private
PRIVATE perfor m a n c e
PERFORMANCE seems to Mr.
Larsen to have
some bearing on the choice of plays,
in some mysterious way. Merely
because the main object of the
plays is to try out freshman members of the club, he appears to assume that the choices are justified.
But there are plays available
which give equal, or even much
greater opportunities for characterization than the ones chosen. And
these plays (we are not naming
any specific ones. We are only mapping out general lines") are not
concerned with the problems of ten
or twenty years ago. Their dramatic interest may not be sufficient
to enable them to be played ten
years from now. But at present
they are alive. ,
This same column drew a letter
from that well-known
A LETTER scribe, J. Meredith
NO LESS Tutt. The big sissy
did not have the
nerve to sign his name to the missive, but a little comparison with
the letter received by the Student
Prince revealed that the two were
written on the same paper, and on
the same typewriter. The indentations were the same. (Nice sleuthing,  eh,  Tuttie?)
Mr. Tutt appears to think that
we advocate the presentation of
problem plays only. Which is not
what we said. The original sentence
began: "If the Players* Club want
to present topical plays ..." And
if they do, they should present the
more recent ones. The others belong
to history.

Whiskers in The Dark
Somewhere ln Chinatown, deep
ln a dark cellar, a mighty figure
stirred. sapBoberts turned over,
and sat up. He tried vainly to remember how he had arrived there.
But it was no use.
A ray of light stabbed the styglan
gloom, and sapBoberts looked up.
Ah Sen Tu, the hideous henchman
of Chang Suey, was glaring through
an aperture ln the celling!
"Ah, foreign devil! You have
awakened. And when the master
letulns you shall pay the pllce foh
Insulting the snake—the ancestlal
god of Chang Suey!"
The   trap  door  closed,   and   sapBoberts sank  back In a stupor.
•      •      •
Meanwhile, a little group was
racing for the beach at Point Qrey.
The sinister submarine of Count
Aramonde de Pollette was waiting
to receive the plans from the Princess Maria de Beandollert, and
Chang Suey was equally determined
to get the plana for his own horrible purposes.
"Heavens, Scrlbblewell," said
Hambury, "who is that strange figure standing on the bluff? And
what  can   he  be  doing?"
"Ah, Hambury, that is Peerless
Pain, ruler of the mystic tribe of
Thirtyate, and he is combing his
scented locks."
Just then, the figure turned, so
that his classic profile was silhouetted against the moonlight, and
paused for the effect on the Ubyssey sleuths. But when he saw who
theywere, he paled, for even Peerless Pain knew the ancestral curse
which falls upon the race of Say-
niors when they have offended the
gods of Muck, and fallen afoul of
the   powers   of  the  mighty  Thoth.
"Stop! Stop, or there will not be
any complimentaries to the Senior
class   party!"
But the intrepid sleuths advanced.

"Come with us, O greatest of all
the Pains in the land of Ubicee.
We demand it in the name of

But the Pain only ran a comb
through his scented hair, and replied: "I have better things to do
with my time. I am president of
Thirtyate, and cannot be bothered."
Without a word, Scrlbblewell
threw him aside, and the two
marched on, leaving Peerless Pain
vainly searching for his comb,
which he had dropped, and pausing
occasionally to admire hts classic
profile in the pools of water left
from the rain.
When they reached the beach,
they gasped In horrorl
. Maria de Beandollert lay faintly
on the sand, and of Count Aramonde de Pollette's submarine,
there was no more trace than a
pool of oil on the water, and half
a diesel engine which the waves
had washed up.
A wlng-jlng whistled through the
air, and pinned Oscar's overcoat to
the ground! A fiendish laugh rent
the welkin. (By the way, what ls
a welkin?)
And the sinister voice of Dr.
Chang Suey came to them from
high  up on  the cliffs!
"Fools! Such an amateur adventuress as Maria de Beandollert
could not hope to succeed against
me, Chang Suey. If you want the
plans, come and find them. I go
now to attend to that insulter of
my ancestlal god,  sapBoberts!"
There was a gleam of light, and
the insidious Oriental had vanished.
And Just then, came the full-
throated war cry of the mystic tribe
of HetaKsi!
(What will happen to sapBoberts? Will Peerless Pain find his
oomb? Read next week's chapter,
and you won't find outl)
A sailor, after placing some
flowers on a grave in the cemetery,
noticed an old Chinaman placing a
bowl of rice on a nearby grave.
The sailor asked sarcastically:

The old Chinaman replied with a
smile: "Same time yo.ur friend

In their opening game on Saturday night the Munro Ave did not
show a great deal of finesse, but
they did show a lot of flght and
determination to win. However,
with Pringle, Mathison and Wright
providing whatever generalship
and polish is needed and with the
traditional varsity spirit working,
the studes should come through
with a win in this flrst game.
Starting line-up for the Birds

and three rookies, Straight, Pallas
and Matheson, on the forward line.
This would leave Turner, Lucas and

The Gods of the Gridiron continued to smile on the efforts of the
Thunderbirds as they fought the

Varsity unleashed a driving
attaok In the first few minutes of
the game to catch the Beara flat-

Harmer to boot a snappy field goal
and become the hero of the day.
Play swayed back and forth for
the rest of the half with Johnny
Pearson's usual steady kicking saving the Birds from any real danger. Tommy Williams was rouged

Rule was the star of the Alberta attack, but did not display the promised aerial bombardment expected
by the Varsity coaches.
