Goldsmith's  Comedy
Selected For
Goldsmith's "She Stoops To Conquer" will be the Spring Production
of the U.B.C. Players Club this year,
it was decided at a general meeting
ot the club Wednesday afternoon.
Miss Dorothy Somerset, director of
the Players' productions for the last
two years, "Caesar and Cleopatra,"
and "Hedda Gabler", will again be
in charge of production.
Speaking of "She Stoops To Conquer," Professor Thorleif Larsen,
Honorary President of the club, mentioned that, since its introduction to
the theatre more than a century ago,
the play has never been out of production. An eighteenth century comedy, it does not suffer from being
mannered and dated as most of its
companion plays from the same period do, he stressed.
Tryouts for parts In the production
will be held in the Auditorium on
Tuesdiy and Thursday of next week,
it was announced by Hugh Palmer,
President of the Players' Club. The
cast of the play is fa.Irly large, and
the parts offer a wide scope in dramatic effort. The President hopes that
every member of the club will see
tit  to try out.
The President also mentioned the
newly-decorated Green Room and
congratulated those concerned with
the improvements.
The dress-rehearsal of the Alumni
Plays this evening will commence at
7:30 in order to accomodate any who
wish to spend the latter part of the
evening at the Ballet Russe.
Phrateres To
Sponsor Dance
Men interested in tripping the light
fantastic are advised to pull up their
socks and shed those adolescent pimples, is Phrateres circles are humming busily with plans for a dance.
At a meeting in Arts 100 on Tuesday noon members voted for the first
week in February as a tentative date.
Ardie Beaumont's suggestion that
Mr. Horn's assistance be asked in
choosing a hall and orchestra was
approved. Arrangements have been
left in the hands of a committee consisting of the vice-presidents of all
the sub-chapters, headed by Madge
"Tickets are not expected to amount
to over one dollar per couple," said
Audrey Horwood, club president. "Of
course we need about one hundred
and fifty to sign up before the dance
is really assured, but we feel that
since the suggestion came from the
members that they are enthusiastically behind the committee."
Nominations for President of
Arts '39 must be In the Students' Council office, signed by
at least ten members of the
class, by Tuesday, January 14.
The election will be held on
Monday, January 20, In Arts
100. The nominations for other
offices will be from the floor.
Mr. Peter Disney, forensic debator
and President of the Parliamentary
Forum, who will captain the U.B.C.
team against Manitoba here on Jan.
18 in the Hotel Georgia. His speaking partner In the encounter will be
Mr. Dorwin Baird.
Lectures On
Music Praised
By Sedgewick
"One of the grave defects of the
University is that it provides practically no instruction in the fine arts,"
Professor G. G. Sedgewick told a
Ubyssey representative Wednesday.
Hv' was giving his opinions on the
approaching scries of music lectures
by Mr. Allard do Ridder.
"The fine arts have been neglected
a good deal in Canadian universities
hi tire p;..st but almost all now offer
some instruction on them. We are
lagging behind.
"It is the first time that anything
like this series of lectures has been
done at the University and it ought
to bo encouraged by anyona interested in music. These lectures are a
step in the right direction and I hope
it is a sign that when finances are
better we may establish chairs in
music and the other fine arts.
"I commend these lectures to all
who are interested in music."
Mr. Gage stressed the fact that these
lectures are non-technical. "They
are arranged for those who know
nothing about music. They are of
general interest having applications
to practically all students. It is an
experiment, the success of which will
depend on the students," he said.
A similar series of lectures was
given down town two years ago and
created such wide interest that some
lectures had to be repeated.
Two More French
Films Coming Soon
"Due to the overwhelming success
of the French film, 'Maria Chapdelaine,' shown locally last fall, the
French department of the University
has been able to secure two more
outstanding pictures, 'Le Barbier de
Seville' and 'Madame Camelia,' the
latter starring the most famous
French actress of today, Mile. Yvonne
Printemps," stated Dr. D. O. Evans,
head of the department, to the Ubys«
sey yesterday,
"Le Barbier de Seville," the famous
opera by Rossini, features the singing
ot Andre BauRe as the barber, and
Jean Galland, both leading lights of
the Paris Opera. Special showings
of this film will be made at the Lyric
Theatre at 9:00 p.m. on Friday, Jan.
17, and again at 9:45 the following
Dr, Evans stated that the local
French consul has taken a great Interest in the effort being made to
arouse appreciation of French motion
pictures among Vancouver people
and is co-operating with the French
department in making a success of
the venture.
Tickets are being sold at the J. W.
Kelly Piano Co. ticket office.
Aiumni Players
Perform On
Farce, Light Comedy
And Tragedy On
Farce, light comedy and tragedy
constitute the attractive program of
one-act plays to be presented on
Saturday night at 8:30 in the Auditorium by the Players' Club Alumni.
There will also be a last dress rehearsal at 7:30 on Friday night to
which students and friends of the
Players' Club are invited, with a silver collection but no admission.

Aklns. The. plays are under the direction of Mrs. B. Cllgg, Miss Isabel
Barton, and Mrs. Fowler respectively,

The plays are being put on with
the intention of putting the best in
the Drama Festival. They will be
judged on Saturday night by James
Butterfield, Professor G. G. Sedgewick, and Mrs. A. F. B. Clark.
The Players' Club Alumni hope to
put on a play at Gradautlon also, and
any Players' Club members will be
welcomed as alumni players on their
leaving the University.
To make it possible for students to
rrtnain on the campus until the plays
begin, thc Cafeteria will remain open
until 7 when the doors of the Auditorium v/ill be opened.
U.B.C. Students At
S.C.M. Convention
Homo from Indianapolis where they
attended a convention of more than
3000 university members of the Student Christian Movement, eight
U.B.C. delegates have returned to thc
The convention, held in the Cadle
Tabernacle, gained an international
flavor through the presence of such
distinguished guests as the Archbishop of York and Toyohiko Kagawa,
Japanese novelist and social worker.
Subject of discussion was to determine the possibility of solving world
problems by applied Christianity.
Lectures, services, personal discussion
and interviews with the celebrated
guests constituted the program.
Their bus journey to Indiana occupied four days and nights of concentrated traveling on the part of the
eight delegates from U.B.C. They
were Bob McMasters, Sam Roddan,
Bob McKenzie, Norah Sibley, Lois
Sanderson, Phyllis Shaw, Harry Morrow and Peter Disney.

European Adventures
Narrated By Student
Giving no sign of the exotic places
and rich experience they have seen
and known abroad, several travelled
people are assembled here at U.B.C.
hiding their garnered funds of Interest under the well known bushel.
One of these is Ellen Boving (connections with Players' Club and the
Faculty of Agriculture) who has only
recently returned from Europe with
a fascinating English accent and
glowing stories of life on the Rhine.
Weissbaden—fashionable spa where
the cream of European aristocracy
comes to curdle in the salt spring
baths — medeival Cologne with its
magnificent cathedral, feudal castles
and lovely country-side scenes were
some of the more attractive features
of Ellon's peregrinations in Germany.
Her trip down the Rhine she found
altogether enjoyable. Bristling with
picturesque atmosphere and quaint-
ness, the country was then (1932) relatively undisturbed by explosive Nazis, emigrating Jewry, or riots.
Along the Rhine, rugged and precipitous above the Gorge, crumbling
feudal castles perch on the crags;
from the river near Koblenz, rises
the grim Lorelei rock, which tradition assigns as the base of operation
for the Lorelei, the siren of the Rhine
whose song  dragged  mariners to  a
grisly death on the rocks.
Paddle boats ply between tiny hamlets along the shore, past stretches of
beautifully kept vineyards where,
claims Ellen, the huge clusters of
grapes can be seen from the steamer.
The hamlets occasionally witness
scenes of magnificent carousing when
parties of students weave up the
river on drinking tours of all the
country taverns.
The taverns in the towns Ellen
thought entirely picturesque. With a
reminiscent gloa:n in her blue eye,
she recalled the gravelled courtyards,
vine-covered trellises against the old
walls, peasants passing along the cobbled streets, and the people sitting
about at little tables, drinking their
beer, hell oder dunkel.
One of the finest experiences Ellen
enjoyed was an excursion to the
fourteenth century castle at Schloss-
berg, which had been restored and
refurnished to appear as it must have
been in the Middle ages. After a
two-mile climb through the dusk, the
castle above silhouetted against a
night sky, they saw the flaring
torches of visitors coming up from
the river below. Inside the strong-

Slim Majority Favors
Constructing Road
At U.S. Expense
By a vote of 16-14 the Parliamentary Forum, at its first impromptu debate on Tuesday
night, sustained the motion:
"Resolved that this house approves that the suggested Alaskan highway be built at the
expense of the United States
of America."
Leader of the Affirmative was John
Conway, who had three minutes to
prepare his speech. He devoted much
of his time to developing the military
advantages of the road.
"I would ask you to look at the
state of international affairs," he
opened, "When Wilhelm II of Germany first brought forward the idea
of an Oriental menace, he was
laughod at. We have since found out
that he was right."
"Now again we are faced with a
definite yellow periol. Japan at the
present time is definitely making a
bid for power. The new Japanese
Nationalist Party has formulated the
"Japanese Monroe Doctrine," which
states that Japan should have the
sole right to control Oriental affairs.
And the Japanese mean by this not
only China but all the East, including
"The West must decide what steps

Seniors Finally
Decide on Dance
After lengthy discussion, Arts '36
have at last decided to hold their
party on January 23. The place was
not decided on but it will be either
the Blue Goose or the Stanley Park
The r.'eeting opened with a heated
discussion of the authenticity of the
minutes. Ewart Hetherington reviewed last term with sadness but
hoped that the coming year would
be more favorable towards Arts '36.
From this point the class discussed
the possibility of a second class party.
As time went on, the discussion developed into a first class argument,
and at times wandered from the point.
At one time the subject of new traditions arose. Finally, in the closing
minutes of the meeting, Donna Carson put forth the date of the party
and the motion was carried.
To promote further success for the
party publicity committees have been
arranged. Ewart Hetherington also
says that there will be a man at the
foot of the Cafeteria stirs to collect
fees from now to the night of the
Conway  and  Rosenbaum Travel to Edmonton Next Wed.
"That Canada's Foreign Policy
should be one of complete Isolation"
will be the resolution for the McGouan Cup series of four simultaneous
inter-collegiate debates next Friday
evening, the seventeenth of January.
In each case, the travelling team will
take the negative and the home team
the affirmative.
U.B.C.'s travelling team, Jack Cos-
way and Alvin Rosenbaum, will leave
next Wednesday evening via C.NA
for Edmonton whew they will debal
against the Unlvenlty ot Alberta.
•that afternoon, U. B. C.'s homo
team, Dorwin Baird and Peter Disney, will meet a team from the University of Manitoba in the University
Auditorium at 4:00 p.m.
If only one university wins both
its debates, that university will win
the McGouan Cup; if two universities
each win two debates, there will be
a final forensic encounter between
them, and the winner of this clash
will hold the Cup.
Jack Conway, leader of the Thunderbirds' travelling team, is an experienced, polished, well-read member of the local forum. He Is twenty-
one years old, a graduate of U. B .C.
with honours In History and Economics, Is at present trying for his Master's degree preparatory to entering
Law next fall.
Jack has always been well known
in Alma Mater Circles having held
executive posts in the Parliamentary
Forum in his undergraduate days. He
has taken part in intercollegiate debates in other years and put up a

Sophomores Plan
: Party At Grill
1936 is Leap Year.
With that thought uppermost in
their minds, the executive of Arts '38,
headed by Janet Davidson, vice-
president, are pushing forward plans
for their party at the end of the
Although the executive refuses to
divulge any details, it is believed that
the party will be novel in character,
due, probably, to the afore-mentioned
fact about Leap Year. The Spanish
Grill of the Hotel Vancouver will be
the scene of the festivities, and the
music will bp by one of Vancouver's
most rhythmic bands.
One thing, however, that the executive of Arts '38 is not reluctant to
talk about—the matter of class fees.
These only amount to a dollar, and
must be paid in full by tho entire
class before the party can even pretend to bo a success.
Sophomores may pay their fees to
any executive member, or see the
treasurer at the foot of tho caf stairs
any noon next week.

The columnist of the News-Herald, one D.
F. H., has challenged the appointment by the
Board of an American to the position of athletic supervisor, asserting a seventy-five percent
qualified Canadian is preferable to a hundred
percent American.
This is a very narrow attitude. The practice of favoring one's own countrymen and of
disregarding merit lowers the standard of competence in all countries involved, just as
thoughtless tariffs lower the .quality of goods
in all countries involved. If the Americans
acted in the manner which D. F. H. would wish
us to, there would be far more Canadians out
. of work than Americans.
It is stupid to restrict interchange between
two countries so close in economic and social
life as Canada and America. And arguing
completely selfishly, whatever restrictions are
made are certain to damage Canada more than
America in the long run, anyway.
It is interesting to observe how our strictest nationalists are the first to be incensed by
their American counterpart, Mr. Hearst.
How many Arts students know what they
intend to do when they finish University? This
question may not interest the average Arts
Undergrad. But it should ! There is probably
no other group of people going through this
institution with the same naive outlook and
the same Micawber attitude that "something
will turn up" when they graduate. They have
no notion what they will do and apparently no
desire to find out what they might do. On the
other hand there are people—both men and
women—who have some idea of what they
would like to do, so they do not come directly
under the above condemnation. This editorial is, however, intended for both groups.
The Vocational Guidance lectures are
sponsored by the Alumni Association of the
University of B.C. In doing this the graduates
feel that they would be giving undergraduates
an opportunity which they themselves missed.
It should help those who have no ideas about
what they want to do and it should also give
valuable information about many lines of business to those who have already decided what
their vocation is to be. The Alumni Association appreciates the fact that these lectures
may not be all that the students desire. If you
have any constructive ideas they will be welcomed. Please address all letters to Lex L.
McKillop, Treasurer Alumni Association, c|o
Students Council.
Remember it never hurts to know a little
about different kinds of business—even if you
do know practically everything at present.

Whatever became of autointoxication in the
advertising vernacular ... for years I thought
it was something you got from riding in closed
cars with the windows rolled up . . . The cat
I got in the transmission . . . but that deserves
a paragraph.
I did get a cat in the little Chevrolet's transmission, and I wasn't insured against that. It
looked pretty serious for a while. Persephone
was sitting beside the curb when I got into
her, and the man from the store next door
hustled out. "You mustn't start," he said. "A
cat just climbed up into the engine from underneath." And he lay down on his stomach
and called, "Pussy, pussy, pussy."
But pussy wasn't having any. She walked
along that thing that runs the length of the
car, and sat on the transmission with an air of
permanence. It was noon and the street was
busy and people kept collecting and collecting.
And they all called "Pussy, pussy, pussy," but
no one could reach her. Then they poked with
sticks and she'd run along that thing again and
settle in the engine.
The best minds in the city literally bent
themselves to the task of getting kitty off my
transmission, she'd jump to the ground, but
before anyone could grab her she was buckety
buckety up on the transmission again.
And this shows the moral. A practical-
minded lady with no pretensions at intellectual
superiority came along and sicced her dog at
me and Persephone, and the cat was off like
a skyrocket and across the street before you
could say whiff, and Persephone and I went
Allard de Ridder
Has Fine Record
Allard de Ridder was born in Dor-
drect, Holland. He studied for seven
years at the Conservatory of Music
at Cologne. His violin teacher was
Professor Eldering, a prominent pupil of Joseph Joachim. He studied
conducting under the Director, Fritz
Steinbach, and later under Stein-
bach's successor, Hermann Adendrath.
On returning to Holland, Mr. de
Ridder, at the invitation of William
Mengelberg, appeared as guest conductor of the Amsterdam Symphony
Orchestra. For nearly two seasons
he was associated with the National
Op'^ra of Amsterdam. When he arrived in the United States he conduced n concert given by the Boston
Symphony Orchestra. For ten years
he was u member of the Los Angeles
Philharmonic Society.
During 1930-33, when the Vancouver Symphony Society revived Its operations, Mr. de Ridder came from
California to conduct the rehearsals
and concerts. In 1933 he became a
resident of Vancouver, at which time
the number of concerts of the Symphony in Vancouver was more than
During the short time Mr. de Ridder has been In charge of the Orchestra the Society has become an important institution in the city.
Mr. de Ridder is also conductor of

organization are broadcasted weekly.

Mrs. Roosevelt has started a syndicate daily
column in many of the newspapers in the Uni
ted States. She calls it "My Day", just simply
"My Day", mark you, not "White House Ruminations" or "Look at Me", or even "Babies,
Just Babies" like that magazine she published
last year (which someone felt impelled to
rhyme with "It gives me the rabies"), but
plain, "My Day". Nice of her to let the rest
of us use it.
And just when she started it in the New
Year she revealed she had resolved to devote
a little more time each day to thinking. The
trouble was she didn't start in time, or else she
never would have started a column. Column-
izing is likely to give one a number of ills from
intellectual mildew to flat feet, depending on
the kind of columnizing one chooses to dish
This is true of writing twenty columns a
year which is what I do. Think how much
worse it will be for three hundred and sixty-
five days, unless she gets Sundays off.
I'm interested to know if Vancouver's Columnist's Union will make any recognition of
her efforts. If she's invited to join, even as an
honorary member, I'm resigning. That organization may be as broad as Eddie Cantor's alleged humor, but still it would bring out the
claustrophobe in me.
The death occurred New
Year's day of Stirling William
Gray, formerly of Arts '37, and
only son of Dr. A. A. Gray of
this city. The deceased, aged
19, entered this university In
1933, and won many friends
with his quiet humour and unassuming manner. He was a
keen student, Interested In Physics and Astronomy, and a regular attendant of the Parliamentary Forum. His friendship
will be missed by many.

With 521 out of 615 students voting
for a change, the present Compulsory
Attendance Regulation was overwhelmingly condemned by the students in the Journal Poll which closed
Wednesday. Eighty-five percent of
the voters declared for a change,
while over half voted for the abolition of the existing rule except for
first year students. In a poll which
expressed the opinion of over one-
third of the entire student body, there
was little doubt left as to the attitude
of the students upon this question.
We would like to devote a couple
of sentences to those who voted for
enforcement of the present rule. Most
of tham seem to feel that abolition
of the rule will mean deserted classrooms. We venture to predict that
the attendance would remain much
the same. The rule would not be
abolished with a view to skipping
lectures. Its purpose is to protect students from worthless lectures and to
aid professors to realize just how well

The formation of a Communist
Club at the University of Toronto is
at present causing quite a furor on
the campus there. The formation of
the club was merely the beginning,
the climax came when permission was
requested to extend an invitation to
Tim Buck, Dominion Communist
leader, to address the first meeting
The permission was granted, and the
prominent Communist is to speak in
the Women's Union Building on the
The decision was made only after
considerable reflection. The conclusion was arrived at, rightly enough,
that the student body as a whole
was capable of doing its own think*
ing. and therefore those who were
present to hear the fiery orator would
not be influenced by his speech.
But the University authorities, influenced by the ideas of freedom of
speech and student thinking, displayed an alarming ignorance of the
policies and methods of the Communist Party.
The methods adopted by Communist groups throughout the world are
thoroughly despicable.
Now this creeping octopus is seeking to extend an arm into the nation's

that it can attract some of us to its
banner to assist in carrying on Its

"The Junior Prom will be the best
class party of the year," modestly
stated John Logan, President of Arts
'37, when interviewed by a Ubyssey
reporter. "Any party sponsored by
Arts '37 is bound to be a successful
one; but we hope to make this year's
dance the best in the class's history,"
continued the Junior prexy.
Logan stated that the affair will
probably be held at the Commodore
though this had not been definitely
decided. The Junior Prom Queen
idea 'started last year will be continued this year. Four candidates for
queen will be nominated by members
of the class and then finally four aspirants elected from these nominated.
As each person buys a ticket he will
be allowed to vote for his favorite.
The Co-ed receiving the most votes
will be duly crowned by the Honorary President of the Class, Professor
F. G. C. Wood, during the Prom and
will be the recipient of suitable gifts.
The voting will be conducted on a
strict and orderly basis to prevent any
"ballot stuffing" as occurred last year.
The dtte of the Junior Prom has
been set for March 5. It will therefore be the last, and the Junior executive insists, the best party of the
year. Juniors will receive tickets
upon payment of class fees. Additional tickets in limited numbers for
others will go on sale later.

Pop-eye's canned spinach will not
be needed on the campus if the projected program of physical education
for co-eds, now being planned by
Miss Gertrude E. Moore, proves successful.
Miss Moore, recently appointed director of physical education on the
campus, was introduced by Dean Bollert at a capacity meeting of the
[Women's Athletic Society in Arts 204
Thursday noon. She is a graduate
of Margaret Eaton School. Following
her course there she went to Harvard
University. Miss Moore has worked
In the physical education departments
of Toronto and also with the Y.W.
C.A. in Vancouver.
"The program offers an opportunity
for real fun as well as healthful exercise and is not put forward as a
duty. Participation in the various
branches of the program is voluntary
and the work will have a definite
permanent valuj, "states Miss Moore.
Workouts wil be held three timet
a week, usually in the morning. One
noon-hour session will be called,
probably on Monday and if the noon-
hour session proves successful it may
be possible to increase them. Game*
will be run in a series, with a different game at each session. There
will be eight periods for class work,
one of which may be used for folk-
dancing which will be of great help
to the girls who plan to teach primary classes. Beginners badminton and
archery on Thursday afternoon and
a theory class at 10 o'clock on Wednesday mornings are included In the
present plan.
At the close of the meeting Dean
Bollert expressed the wish that it
would be possible to obtain units for
physical education in two or three
years. Registration forma are available in Mist Bollert't office and the
program will begin on Monday.

Alvin L. Rosenbaum offers the
force and vivacity of youth to complement the more staid qualities of
his academic leader. Only nineteen,
he brings to his first major intercollegiate debate a wide experience
acquired as a freshman—and as a high
school student. This year, a sophomore, he is Literary Representative
to the executive of Arts '38; Vice
President of the Forum; and Debates
Manager in the L.S.E. Like, Conway,
he too plans to enter Law; but unlike Conway, he intends to practice
in the United States—the land of his
birth. Together, these two men make
a team worthy of the label "Thunderbirds" and stand a good chance of
winning.—W. F. E.
Lex McKillop, leader of the negative, denied the existence of the "yellow peril", and proceeded to discuss
the practicability of the road.
"Some engineers have stated that in
some places the road would cost a
milion dollars a mile. Even the vast
resources of the United States could
not undertake such an enterprise."
"And if the United States and Japan
did go to war, the existence of such
a road would only embroil us. And
for that reason alone, the road would
be a liability rather than an asset."
"Also, we must consider whether
or not we want a military highway
of a foreign nation running through
our territory. That is the principle
use of such a road, as the leader of
the government has stated."
Speakers from the floor followed.
Dorwin Baird dwelled upon the Increased revenue from tourist trade
which such a road woudl bring. Other
speakers expanded the military advantages of the road.
Alan Morley, President of the
A.M.U.S., brought his military and
geographical knowledge to bear upon
the question. Speaking for the negative, he said: "Such a road would
be a military liability. It could be
cut at at least five places. The Fraser, the Bella Coola, and Prince Rupert are points at which only a small
military expedition could create a
great amount of damage. Also, a
major military force could not carry
on operations in Alaska.
"The logical route for the highway
would be through the prairies, swinging westward in the north. Then,
in case of an attack we could make
our defence east of the Rocky Mountains. The invading force would have
to carry on operations through five
hundred miles of mountainous country. This would weaken the attackers, and strengthen the defence, because the Pacific coast troops could
be withdrawn to that line."
Other speakers deliberated upon
commercial and economic advantages.
When the vote was taken, the resolution was upheld by the narrow vote
of 16-14.
It was decided that there would be

Juniors Also Weakened
The Senior Soccerites are starting
again in the League after a short
lay-off during the exams and the
Christmas Holidays.
The examinations dealt a poor hand
to the soccerites, as they have lost
two first string   men   and   a third
member of the team who, according
to Coach Hitchins had great potentialities at a good goal keeper, haa not
returned to Varaity but not because
of examination results.
With this weakened team, the
coach hopea to get better results and
"it is up to the individual player to
give it all they got," he said.
The soccerites, however, are not altogether hopeless, for they have secured the services of Tim Lul, a
former player for the Chinese Students. It is also rumored that two
other new players of great experience will be seen in the first eleven
in a short time.
The Junior team, which usually
sacrifices their men for the seniors,
may be considerably weakened; and
on the other hand, the general
change may benefit the team. They,
also, wil. start in the league next

It seems that one star on Varsity's Miller Cup squad has
a habit of being a leading light in other sports. As well as being
a star half-back and Vice-captain of the U.B.C. English Rugby
team, Sophomore Dave Carey shines on the cricket field, and
has been chosen to be one of B. C.'s two representatives on the
touring Canadian cricket team,
Dave, along with Norman Pearson of the Burrard Club,
will leave about June 19 for the Old Land, where they will
spend several days in London before engaging in a series of
matches in the South of England.
The Canadian team will meet Eton, Harrow and possibly Rugby, at well
as playing a game at Lords. The Canadians will be guests of the M.C.C. at
the annual Oxford-Cambridge and alto at the Indian-England match.

Co-eds Lose
Two Games
Varsity's Senior Women hoopettes
bowed tc the strong Province team,
32-10, Wednesday night at the V.A.C.
gym. The co-eds could not do much
in the first half which ended 22-2,
but towards the end of the game,
they started to rally. In the last
quarter, they even outscored the
winners 6-5.
Province played well but their
passes were not as good as usual and
spoilt their combination somewhat.
Varsity was handicapped since^ they
had not played at all for over a
month while their opponents had had
no holiday.
The second half was fast and even
rather exciting. Both teams fought
hard and did not spare themselves.
Team — I. Campbell, E, Clark, B.

Varsity's Women's Intermediate bas-'
ketball team had another disastrous
night when they met the young Province stars and went down 48-10. The
game was rather dull at first as the
co-eds were not very effective and
the victors had a hard time making
their plays click. However, the latter part of the game was more interesting as both teams improved considerably
Marjory Mellish, Margaret Porter,
and Margaret Walker were the coeds' mainstays while all the Province
girls were good.

Lose 29-36 In Ragged Game
The new style of attack is profoundly baffling. It appears to be
centered on deception, the first stage
of the idea being to play like hams.
This makes the other team careless,
and then you surprise them on a sudden reversal of form. But the V.A.C.
players were not to be out done by
such tactics, They saw the value of
tho new style and soon adopted it,
with a saddening effect upon the
Varsity men.
The remainder of the evening was
a glorious competition for who could
be the most ragged. They battled
wild throw for wild throw, penalty
for penalty, until one had difficulty
in determining the worst. Then near
the finish the clubbers had to spoil
everything by becoming serious, and
slipping in the odd basket to win
Every player was effectively sloppy
for Varsity, even Pringle, the old reliable, ran around with a lost look all
evening. Rollo and Nell were the
players that gave V.A.C. their win.

the grade in his exams and is again
able to play. He was on the floor
for a few minutes In the second half.

Varied Program
For Intra-mural Sport
The Intra-mural Sports Committee
has effected radical changes for the
New Year. For 1936 they have adopted an Ir.ter-class schedule in place of
the former Inter-year program. Also
the gamer, are arranged to be played
during the noon-hours of five days
of each week. The chief reason for
this change is that in the future there
will be more teams competing and
therefore more students will participate in these interesting games.
In the new plan all sports will be
included. A class may challenge an
other to a game in some sport not
included in the schedule below, such
as tennis, ping-pong, or vollyeball and
the Intra-mural Boss's to whom challenge is reported, will award points
to the winning class. The Committee
has high hopes that the able bodied
students produced by Mr. Van Vliet's
gymnasium classes will take part in
the noon hour games.
It was decided that no Big Block
players should be allowed to participate in the noon games and that English Rugby teams should consist of
11 men only. The method of awarding points and the rules and regulations are to be announced in Tuesday's issue.
The classes are divided into two
leagues, the Blues and the Golds. At
the end of the term the leading classes in each league will compete for
the Championship.
The leagues, and schedule for the
first of next week are as follows:
Golds: Arts '39, Arts '38, Science '37,
Science '38, Science '39.
Blues: Teachers' Training, Aggies,
Arts '36, Arts '37, Science '36.
Days for games-
Basketball—Wed.,   Fri.,   Sat.
Grass Hockey—Mon., Tues., Thurs.
English Rugby—Mon., Wed., Fri.
Soccer—Mon., Tues., Thurs.
Schedule for Monday and Tuesday-
Hockey-Arts '39 vs. Science '39
Rugby—Arts '38 vs. Science '38
Soccer—Aggies vs. Arts '37
Hockey—Arts '36 vs. Science '36
Soccer—Science '37 vs. Science '38
Class representatives will be respon-
slbcl for fielding their team at the
scheduled time, and for further details they are asked to see Mr. Van
Vliet :U the gymnasium.

With burly Ed Senkler, Science man supreme in surprising condition after his Hollywood holiday, and in their favorite
position on the wrong end of the odds, and the rest of the mudlarks over the holiday burps, Varsity stands an excellent chance
of taking the redmen of Victoria to town in the McKechnie Cup
game of the season.
In the current series, the collegians and Victoria have
both handed a beating to Vancouver Rep and the winnah takes
home the silverplate. The Thunderbirds, after a string of victories back in the boom days of '25-'29, have not held the cup in
recent years, generally leaving Vancouver and Victoria in the
