Large Crowd
Hears Winter
Lead Concert
PRESENTING a concert of high
calibre, the Musical Society brought the Home Gas Symphony
Orchestra, led by Calvin Winter, before an audience that crowded the
auditorium on Thursday noon.
It is a raro treat for the students
to hear an orchestra composed of the
most outstanding musicians in the
city, and led by a director who is
widely known for his ability. It was
a privilege, too. to have John Philip
Ryder, who Is touring with the Empire Opera Company, now in Vancouver, give two selections.
The program, which was introduced
by Frank C. Anders, popular radio
announcer, began with Blgelow's
march "Our Director." The swinging military rhythm of the perfectly
balanced orchestra captivated the
audience.
The second number wr.s an arrangement of Romberg's "Student Prince."
Here the stringed instruments, under
Calvin Winter's delicate baton, dominated the piece.
John Philip Ryder rendered two
numbers that were well received. The
first was "Rolling Down to Rio," by
Oley Speaks, and the second was a
humorous negro song, though not sung
in dialect.
Perhaps the most enjoyable selection on the program was Beethoven's
"Minuet In G." The beauty and simplicity which charaterize this composers work were sympathetically interpreted.
The finale of the recital was somewhat disappointing. It consisted of
a series of favorite airs arranged by
Finck, but so well played that one
resented not being allowed the full
enjoyment of two or three pieces
rather than a brief taste of many.

Arrangements were made and dates
were set for the various literary and
social events of the year at the Council Meeting, held Monday night. The
Musical Society has definitely contracted for the production of the
"Pirates of Penzance" this spring,
the program for the year is as follows:
November (5, Science Banquet; November 7-10, Homecoming; November
14, Arts Ball; November 20-22,
Players' Club Christmas Plays; November 24, British Debate; January
2-6, Victoria Invasion; January 16,
Western Union Debate; January 23,
Washington Glee Club Concert; January 24, Hi Jinx; February 13, Science Ball; February IB, Oratorical
Contest; February 20-21, Miami Basketball Games; February 26-28, Musical Society Production; March 6, Coed Ball; March 11-14, Players' Club
Spring Play.
The report of the Business Manager on the regulation enforced in the
gymnasium during 1930-31 is to be
forwarded to Wm. Thomson, Secretary of the committee on the management of the University Gymnasium.
The re-allotment of the gymnasium
for athletic purposes has made it impossible to nolo class parties there.
All future class parties, therefore,
are to be held in outside halls. The
combined classes of Science '31, '32
and '83 will hold their class party on
Tuesday, November 4, in the Alma
Academy.

Totem Editor
DORIS BARTON
Doris Barton, Arts '32, has been
appointed Editor of the "Totem" for
1930-31. The rest of the staff will be
announced in a few days.
This is the third year of the new
Annual Editor's service on the Publications Board. Starting as a reporter, she became an Assistant Editor in her second term. Last year in
addition to this position she was an
assistant on the "TotenV'staff, and
was made the editor of this year's
Handbook, producing one of the most
compact and attractive editions in
years.
This fall the "Totem" appointment
has been made earlier than usual in
order that the Editor may start planning the project and publish it well
before the close of next term.
EMPIRE TARIFF IS SUBJECT
WHEN EASTERN MAN DEBATES
The Men's Athletic Executive hereby notify all subsidiary clubs of the
Men's Athletics that cligibilty forms
are now in the hands of the Business
Manager and that these forms must
be filled in with a complete list of the
players turning out for the above
mentioned organizations. Failure to
have these forms filled in and turned
in to the Business Office hefore Monday, November ,'i will automatically
render the clubs ineligible to represent  the  University.
The L. S. E. announces that a
public debate will be held under its
auspices next Wednesday, November
6, at 3 o'clock in Arts 100, at which
Prof. Nathaniel Micklem, of Queen's
University, Past, President of the Ox- i
ford Union, will act as fifth speaker.
This should be of unusual interest,
not only because of Prof. Micklem's
standing as a debating man, hut also
because the U. B. C. toam, which is
to oppose the British team, debating
the British Empire Tariff Question
on November 24, will meet another
Debating Union team on the same
subject on this occasion,
The subject will he: Resolved that
this house favours the establishment
of closer economic unity within the
Empire by means of general tariff

Literary Sleuth
Runs Van Dine
to Earth
WHO IS S. S. Van Dine, the
man who has been called
Conan Doyle's successor in
the field of detective fiction? At the
home of Mrs, H. C. Shaw, on Tuesday night, Betty Moore played the
literary sleuth in her paper on the
creator of Philo Vance—the modern
Sherlock Holmes—and unfolded to
the Letters Club her investigation into the real identity of the author.
All available Information about S.
S. Van Dine was listed fact by fact
in the hunt for clues to the man behind the nom de plume. The name
of the doctor to whom Van Dine says
he owes his life had a familiar ring,
and it was found that an anthology
of detective stories was dedicated to
this medical man. The introduction
to the book was similar to an article of
Van Dine's, and other circumstances
established him as Willard Huntingdon Wright, editor of the anthology.
The writer of detective fiction had
determined to conceal his identity
for all time, and has derived much
amusement from the efforts of journalists to discover his real name. Even
a needle in a haystack can sometimes
be found, however. Final proof that
Wright and Van Dine are one is
contained in "Who's Who." under
"Wright." who is also credited with
being "Van Dine," and author of several detective stories,
Willard Huntingdon Wright, however, is the author of books on art,
literature and other cultural subjects.
A nervous breakdown confined him
to bed for over two years, during
which time he could only read detective fiction and ammassed almost
2,000 volumes of it. He. became the
world's greatest scholar of detective
novels from the technical, literary,

Frosh Flash
Makes Sprint
To Win Race
Winning the Arts '30 Road Race on
Wednesday by a wide margin, Alfle
Allen the diminutive Arts '33 distance star nosed out his only rival,
Leo Gansner of Arts '31, by a tremendous sprint in the last half of
the last lap to cross the finish line
in the t'.ne of 14 minutes 27 and 2/5
second'. 7 aaconds over the mark set
last year by Joe Hammet.
Due to lack of advertisement or
for some other reason very few men
were In condition for this gruelling
struggle which is said to be the
hardest race of the year. Consequently only seven men lined up at
the starting point of which four were
Artsmen, two Theologs, and one a
Scienceman.
Shatford took the lead at the outset staying in front until the end of
the flrst lap. During the next stretch
however Gansner headed the procession with Alfle Allan treading close
on his heels and Shatford in third
place. At the start of the next lap
the first two held their same position
but Shatford and Bruce had dropped
out leaving George Allen of Science
'33 and Ward of tho Theologs running neck and neck in the third position. When the gun went for the
last lap the situation was unchanged
except for the fact that another man
had dropped out and Allen and Gansner had increased their lead.
During the last circuit, however,
Allen gradually overhauled Gansner
and finally passed him with a great
sprint crossing the finish line fifty
feet in the lead. Ward also pulled
away from George Allen taking third
place while the Science man brought
up to the rear.
Students Badly Injured
as Car is Overturned
An accident that resulted in a broken arm to Jack Emerson, overtook
a student car travelling west on 9th
Ave., on Tuesday morning. At the
intersection of Tolmie Street and IHh
Avenue another car crashed into the
one in which Emerson was a passenger and overturned it twice, so that
the wheels pointed skyward. Jack
Allan, the driver, and two other passengers, Christie Fletcher and Herbert Malrn were severely cut about
the hand"! and face by Hying glass,
Hen No. 6 Defeated
In Egg Laying Race
Hen No. 5, a British Columbia
white leghorn hen set the world's
record on Monday, when it laid its
353rd egg in 361 days. With four
days to go it has a possible record of
357 for the year. Hen No. 6, also a
leghorn goes down to defeat with only
351 eggs to her credit, and those are
of less weight than those of the winner. Both birds are of the famous
University of British Columbia stock,
although the prize hen was bred by
Mr. Whiting of Port Kells.
Mr. Whiting is a returned soldier,
incapable of doing hard work, who
by dint of his courage and optimism
has made a financial success of his
hen-breeding business. He has followed the best approved methods of
pedigree breeding under the Dominion Government R.O.P.  system.
The success of Hen No. 5 confirms
the claims made by B. C. breeders
that this province has some of the
best producing strains of the World,
and along with past records should
give rise to an increased demand for
our poultry.
Lady Victorine, a Barred Rock hen
of the University of Saskatchewan,
and a record holder in a different
class from Hens No. 6 and No. fl, is
also a descendent from stock of the
University of B.C,

Musical Musings
Tho program for yesterday's Musial Society recital, featuring1 Calvin Winter and the Home Gas Symphony, drew a capacity
audience. The concert set a new standard for such events. The
applause which acclaimed each number and especially the ovation
which greeted the announcement that, at Mr. Winters suggestion,
selections from the "Pirates of Penzance" will be broadcast with
the Home Gas radio program to assist the Musical Society in staging the operetta, eloquently testified to the appreciation of the students.
A slight taint of the "pep meeting" atmosphere was disappointing to some students, however. This was due to the popular
idea of what students want in music. The "master of ceremonies"
became slightly apologetic in introducing Beethoven's "Minuet in
G," remarking that, "Now we will have a little classical number,"
and the second offering sung by John Philip Ryder could hardly
have been among his best selections.
Why should there be this impression that university students
do not appreciate a consistently high class program? Why should
not a recital such as yesterday's be pleasing throughout in its cultural tone and standard ? Surely a Musical Society concert is an
occasion on which one may expect the best that can be offered.
Pray Consider These
The lead set by Arts '81 in choosing a Valedictory Gift in its
second year and immediately commencing work on the project
is apparently being followed by Arts '32 and possibly by Arts '33.
The method is so sane, so fundamentally reasonable, that it seems
strange that heretofore the decision has been postponed, year
after year, to the closing weeks of the graduating year. The result is usually an inanity, whose chief value is in perpetuating
the name of the class for the benefit of an admiring posterity,
rather than a constructive piece of work with an enduring value.
Some will rise up in indignation at these remarks and point
to the medical equipment for the University Health Service, the
gift of '27. That gift was a happy choice but the fact is, it is an
exception. One has only to walk over in the general vicinity of
the Library to see what we mean.
Arts '32 is apparently having some little difficulty in making
the final choice of a Valedictory Gift. We throw out the following as suitable and laudable memorials:
(1) a collection of modern novels for the Library. This offers a practically virgin field since contemporary fiction is most
conspicuously and deplorably absent on the Library shelves. Each
book could be suitably stamped by the class of '32 which would
thereby be long and favorably remembered by the classes to come.
(2) some permanent and essential work to be incorporated
in the University buildings.
Back to Adam
While reading that Bible of economic students "The Wealth
of Nations"—we found the following interesting suggestion made
by Ailarn Smith 154 years ago. lie proposed that university lectures should be voluntary and that admission fees should be
charged in lieu of professors' salaries. Here truly is an idea; all
students, we feel sure, would earnestly endorse its adoption.
Think of the far-reaching effects of such a scheme. Professors would vie with each other in delivering enthralling lectures.
The walls would resound with the thunder of oratory. No longer
would the door be locked on the tardy one. Rather a bright smile
and a cash-register would greet him as he entered. So visions
the disciple of Adam Smith.
Instead of students making strenuous efforts to imbibe knowledge, the perspiring faculty would crowd the library in the search
for bigger and better facts. Instead of an icy "That essay was
due a week ago," the professor would giggle and smirk and hint
that "perhaps it would be in the interest of Mr. Etaion if he wrote
a short theme—just about 50 words or so."
Competition would at length reach such a point that additional entertainment would be approved to entice th" unwary
student. Vaudeville and negro artists might be imported. Imagine
a dozen chorus girls enlivening an English 9 lecture under the
baton of the professor in charge! Truly Adam Smith pointed the
way to the millenium!
If the President of the Alma Mater Society was so minded
he could enforce a lockout, :i consumers' strike, and so command
a majority in the Senate. If pacifically inclined he could revoke
the charter of ('. 0. T. ('. and order it disbanded. He could cancel
Saturday morning lectures and reduce fees. What infinite possibilities . . .

HEARIT YAPPING
Vet again I am plunged into abysmal depths of blackest horror.
For the spectacle has just presented
Itself to my starting eyes of the University going about its affairs as usual without, apparently, paying the
slightest heed to what I have to say
about It. In my humble capacity,
my very humble capacity as editor
of this column, I have endeavored, in
a modest way, to show the Students'
('until how In govern the University,
even while demonstrating to them
with the profoundest clarity why all
student self-government is not only
impossible, but a dream, or hollow
figment of the imagination. I have
fearlessly shown up the "Honor"'
(!?&) System for what it is, a shell,
decayed and empty, nnd quite unfitted
to the needs of the undergraduates today. I have displayed clearly to the
Editor-in-Chief all the errors of his
ways,—though with the gentlest tact,
and taking the greatest care not to
offend needlessly in any way. I have
even endeavored to point out the inanities so glaringly revealed in the
column "Fun and Fundamentals,"
sure as I am that it is of no use,
since the editor of it seems to be in
some way deficient mentally. (For
this in the kindest, and after all, the
only possible explanation that I can
find for such continued disregard of
my warnings and admonitions.)
But what is the use, after all! The
thing goes on; the Editor persists in
publishing the paper, week after
week, even continuing to write editorials; the Students' Council does not
resign in a body; the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs does not
suspend immediately all the members
of the Alma Mater Society;—in a
word, the University continues to
function,
Often as I have commented upon
the inertia of the University in general, I really cannot help but be astonished at this weird phenomenon.
Can it be that the sparkle of myj
genius is not perceived by these cloddish morons? I shall give it all up,
and hereafter devote my time to
more edifying tasks—as for instance,
the writing of panegyrical letter, to
myself.
R.I.P.
We have never attempted the monumental task of writing sport reports,;
but we feel we could do it were we j
called   upon,   as   eloquently   as   the
next man.   Take for instance a Soccer
write-up.     (A  game  we  have never
played, and do not at all understand, j
being therefore peculiarly qualified to |
expand upon it.)
This is a true and tragic story,
friends. How it happened is just one
ol' those things, l>ut I was there and
snu it all, and the editor told me to
report  it, and  I'm telling you.
I'i r t he niory ol' Alma Mater, in
spite uf the heroic attempts of Imth
team ;, in spite of the acres and oceans
of iiiud, the Varsity team got licked
f i a glorious fare-you-well on Saturday last, heiiiK the hour oi two-thirty
of the clock, pass friend and all's well,
lt is to lie understood that although
iigures are generally held not to lie,
on this sad occasion they prevaricated
shamelessly, and although the score
was forty-love apparently in favor of
the other side, such was not in reality,
the case. j
The game was fast and furious I
practically the whole of the time,
What I mean is, it was just one thing
after another. First the ball bounced
irilliantly off the captain's head amid i
.Ties of, "Is there any danger, captain?" a magnificent dodge on the
;mi't of the second auxiliary winger
nevented whut might have become a
touch-down, or—out, as the French
say, and from then on old Lady I.uek
had it all her own way. One after
another the squad got smothered in
the mud, or humped with the hall,
or slapped mi the wrist, till at the last j
-till tight itig gamely, they one and all
look the count Up lo ten, lillt, he it
■ aid, were glorious in defeat,
On looking this report over, I see
that I have omitted to put iu the
nana of the winning team, hut this
is, iil'lcr nil, an immaterial and even
soiiicwhii' trivial point, which, dear
readers, need not concern us, And
now, three cheers anil i» couple of
veils fur dear old Alma Whooy.is, and
let's all go to the Fashion Show and
see Helen of Troy. Thank you, one

Correspondence
THE SENOR OF SEVILLE
Tbe Editor,
"Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
In your last issue you refer to a
letter from Senor Navarro of Seville.
Unfortunately in your footnote, you
chose to adopt the Italian form of
address, namely "Signor," I would
suggest that as presumably the gentleman in question is a Spaniard, that
the Spanish form "Senor" would be
the most appropriate form of address.
Yours  sincerely,
R. E. M. Yerburgh.
Editor's Note: To call a "Senor"
a "Signor" is certainly a horrible
faux pas. We felt when writing it
that there was something wrong, even
ns we wrote it, but there was no authority on the language to whom we
could refer. This just goes to show
the need for a course in Spanish at
II.B.C.
!    THE BLACK HOLE OF U. B. C.
,    One of the family skeletons of the
university is the English 2 class in
j Arts 100.   Here one may behold near-
' ly 400 students crammed into a room
I built to hold 260.    Students on  the
floor, lounging    against    the    walls,
perched on chairs borrowed from adjacent   common   rooms   all   stifle   together in the cause of Higher Education.    I venture to suggest however
that if the class were held   in    the
auditorium the  majority of students
would get a great deal more out of
the invaluable lectures than at present.
SOPHISTICATION
Bunthorne, our self appointed
campus poet, seems to be exercised
over the matter of sophistication, and
refers to some remarks of mine which
he does not understand. The matter
is very simple. The perfectly sophisticated person is too sophisticated
to desire to appear sophisticated.
Similarly the real cynic is cynical
about his own cynicism. The average
campus cynic is a paradox, being
quite complacent about his own
cynicism. Regarding my own case, is
there anyone who thinks that a true
cynic would spend time and energy
hammering out this column when
there is no material return in the offing? Ye gods it sounds more like
idealism!
SOCCER SOU SISTERS
I would like to suggest to my friend,
the sport editor, that he »>et another
reporter   to   cover   th>.'   soccer   games.
According   to   the   reports   the   team
has   never   been   beaten   yet,     It,     has
lest   games  of course  but  that  is  the
fault of the  referee or the spectators
or the weather or something, but the
team invariably has the best of play.
For instance in tho last Ubyssey we
read  that  "it was  the students who ;
were superior without having a single
break all    the    afternoon."    In    fact, I
"they outplayed the massive Firemen j
in  nl!  departments except shooting." i
Knowing   the   undoubted   journalistic
attainments of the sport editor, I can- j
not   understand   how  he  allows   such j
a   biased   reporter  to   remain   on   the'
staff,    At  least he    should    explain
lo his partisan underling that stories
in  a   newspaper  should   at   any   rate
sound   plausible.
.,       ,;,        ,;.
Lives   of  great   men   all   remind   us
Making dough  should  he  our end,
So that  wc  may  leave behind us
Cash   for   some   one   else   to   spend.

The Menace
I Btared at the paper in blank
amazement while Arnold Anderson
hurriedly lit a Murad and became his
old nonchalant self again.
"Much as I approve of the general
frinciple of the extermination of
reshmen," he remarked calmly,
"Cracking their cranium, with a set
of brass knuckles, as our Professor
Bllgowick seems to have done, is
rather too nasty."
He glanced up the street, then
' pushed the Golden Lotus and myself
! Into the flrst store as an automobile
full of Chinamen dashed past.
I "Dodged thorn!" he said grimly and
! asked tne proprietor for the tele*
| phone . , .
1 Ten minutes later we wero in a
i taxi, hurtling toward the university
i ut top speed. Only once did we stop
! -a few minutes at a clothing store
j to buy the Golden Lotus an overcoat
i to conceal her Chinese robes.
"I must get back to manage Council before Chang Suey's ray reaches
them," exclaimed Anderson. "They
were cheeseparing when i left ana
may now be plunged Into an orgy of
economy. Scrlbblewell, do you realize
that they may cut off all student
functions, including class dances and
balls."
"What, no balls at all ?" I exclaimed,
"Why, life would not be worth living!"
I shuddered at the thought.
"What are we going to do with the
Golden Lotus?" I asked, trying to
change the subject.
"Put her under the care of the
Women's Undergraduate Society," he
answered tersely, "They could use her
In their fashion show.
The car stopped in front of the
Library.
The campus was as calm as usual.
Students were strolling about, freshmen were paddling in the lily pond,
and around the Arts building we could
see a crowd of struggling Arts and
Sciencemen.
Little did they realize the lurking
menace that was threatening not only
this fair campus but the whole civilized world. Little did they know of
the insidious Dr. Chang Suey, who
would soon make Chicago look like the
S. C. M.!
We glanced at the Library and
stood still in amazement. There,
creeping down the stone steps on tiptoe, was the Librarian himself, a
silver trophy under each arm.
"Hush!" he exclaimed from force
of habit, "Silence!"
"What's the matter?" asked Anderson politely.
"S-s-3-sh! I am a burglar," replied
the Librarian in a confidential whisper,
"These cups are from the trophy case."
Chuckling weirdly, he started to
run.
"Get that guy! Get    that    guy!"
shouted Anderson.    A campus policeman darted forward in pursuit.
"The Crime Wave," explained Anderson in horror. "This is only the
beginning."
Wc passed two prominent fraternity
men sitting on the pavement spinning
a roulette wheel, with two bottles of
whiskey and a silence lectern beside
them.
"Again tbe Crime Wave," muttered
Anderson, "They never dared to do
this openly before."
One of them started to speak, and
we hurried the Golden Lotus away in
horror,
We reached the Auditorium and
found a meeting going on, Standing
at the door we could see Don Hutchison on the stage beside a Ford car
with his hand in a barrel.
"I will now draw the winning ticket i
for the car," we could hear him say, I
"Ticket 777 wins the raffle." '
"Come," said Anderson hoarsely,
"Chang Suey has forestalled us."      i
I picked up a "Ubyssey" and gazed
aghast as my worst fears were rea- \
lized. Four solid pages were filled!
with editor's notes, interspersed with
frenzied diatribes against the C. O.
T. C. and the Faculty Committee.
Then I realized the crowning monstrosity.
There was a Literary Supplement!
"Oh horror! horror! I shrieked and
collapsed into Anderson's arms.
"A crime against journalism," I
heard Anderson murmur, 'Chang
Suey  again"
Soon I recovered .sufficiently to
glance nl the paper again, although
I dared not look at the Muck Page.
"What is that, there," exclaimed
Anderson over my shoulder, pointing
to a small item in a corner.
I read it aloud; "The Senate will
meet to-day ut fi p.m."
Arnold Anderson groaned, "All is
lost!" he murmured bitterly, "Chang
Suey will strike again at that mee-
ing."

Historical nace
of Jews Traced
«r|»HROUGHOUT the Ages it  has
■  been out of repression not free-
* dom that the Jews have achieved
what they have," stated the Very
Rev. C. S. Quainton to the members
of the Vancouver Institute in his address on the topic "What the Jews
Have done For Human Life," on
Monday night in Ap. Sc. 100.
Although they have been persecuted by all countries and handicapped
In every possible way among the nations yet the Jews have risen to the
very top In all branches of knowledge, art, and commerce. Always of
a nomadic nature and without a national home they have wandered to
every section of the globe and settling in the different countries have
expended their efforts in building them
up.
Making a rapid sweep of history
from the early days up to the present.
Dean Quainton pointed out some of
the most famous of the Jews and
briefly described their accomplishments. He emphasised the greatness
of Spinosa, the Dutch Jew, one of
the profoundest thinkers of the early
Middle Ages.
To English speaking peoples possibly the best known and best loved
Jew is Disraeli. He, like all members of his race, had many unfair
obstacles placed before him, but he
was able to overcome them all and
took his place among the foremost
statesmen of his day. He also gave
a valuable contribution to literature
and might well be called "the father
of the political novel."
To-day there is hardly a branch
of human activity in which there is
not a Jew at or near the top. The
most famous of all is Albert Einstein the scientist and mathematician.
Other great men of Jewish descent
are Pinero, the dramatist, H. G.
Wells, the novelist, and Lord Mel-
chett the industrialist and politician.
Speaking of the Zionist movement,
the return of the Jews to Palestine,
Dean Quainton expressed the belief
that it would not be successful. Tho
majority of the Jews do not seem to
have any desire to return and if they
did the country* would not be large
enough to support them.
Lately quite a number of Jews
throughout the world have adopted
the Christian religion. But if the
number of converts is to be increased
In tho future it will not be by any
multiplication of missionaries but only by Christian peoples adopting a
true charitable Christian attitude towards the Jews and dropping all
mean and groundless suspicions and
hatreds.
The program of the Institute for
next month follows:
November 9—"Gleanings from my
trip to the International Botanical,
and Horticultural Congresses." Professor John Davidson.
November 10 — "Nationalism of
Canadian poetry." A. M. Steven, Esq.
November 17—"Impressions of the
trip to the Empire Mining Congress
in South Africa."  Prof. G. A. Gillies.
November 24—"Vocational Guidance."   The Hon. Mr. Justice Fisher.

The Historical Society will meet
Monday, November 3, 8 p.m., at the
Cat and Parrot Tea Rooms. Idele Wll-
son will read a paper on"Imperialism
in Egypt." Members are asked to
acquaint themselves with the following material: George Young, 'Egypt;'
Labor Monthly, October, 1929, "Labor Imperialism In Egypt;" Current
History, vol, 26. "The Present Political Situation in Egypt," New Republic, vol. 62, "Egypt, Empire and
League.
Train weary and stiff after the
strenuous series on the Prairies and
the long train jaunt, the Varsity
Canadian Rugby aggregation will
present a rather haggard appearance
when they face Westminster Wildcats at Athletic Park on Saturday
afternoon. Faced with the task of
winning all of the remaining games
in order to win the Lipton Cup, Dr.
Gordon Burke, the student Coach, is
revamping his squad for the final
dash for Big Four honors.
Several members of the Varsity
team will probably be given a rest
this weekend. Fred Bolton and Jim
Winters are almost sure to be out
although they will be seen In action
in the later games. Other possible
non-starters Include Harold Cliffe,
the husky middle, and Jack Walms-
ley, star backfleld man.
The halves will be shifted around
for the Westminster buttle in order
to fill in the vacancies made by the
loss of the injured men. Keith Hedreen
will go into fullback while Art Mur-
dock will come back to half from his
old wing position. Three of the regular senior team who were unable to
make the Prairie trip have benefitted
as a result of the rest and will have
plenty to do tomorrow. Don Tyer-
man will go in at flying wing with
Dick Farrlngton at wing and Bill
Willlscroft.
Gavin Dirom is definitely out of
the game for the season. The husky
backfleld star suffered a fractured collar bone in the Saskatchewan game
and will be unable to use his arm for
several weeks. His absence will make
a big hole in the U.B.C. defense that
will be hard to fill. There are several
promising Intermediates, however,
and one of these may get the cal) for
the game on Saturday.
Depleted Squad
Expects Victory
Varsity's Senior English Rugby
team will engage the Ex-Magee Ruggers on the lower field of Brockton
Point at 3.16 p.m. on Saturday.
The team will miss the services of
Estabrook, who pulled a tendon in
his leg last week, Vic Rogers and Bud
Murray, who both have sprained
ankles. It is also probable that Howie
Cleveland will not be in the line-up.
However, as Varsity has won every
game so far, and the Ex-Magee team
has not gained a single encounter, the
game is not expected to be too strenuous for the Blue and Gold squad,
which should remain on top In its
race for the Miller Cup.
Shinny Players
Clash Saturday
Varsity Men's Grass Hockey team
is due to tangle with Cricketers at
Brockton Point on Saturday while the
U. B. C. team meets Crusaders at
Connaught Park.
In the case of the Varsity team the
game is a crucial one since the team
to date haa lost but a single game,
that last Saturday with the league
leaders Vancouver, who have also
vanquished every other team in the
league. If Varsity can take the
measure of its opponents on Saturday
the students have every chance of
moving to second place in the league
as Incognitos are very unlikely to
beat Vancouver. A practice on Wednesday showed that the condition of
both individuals and team has improved vastly and those "in the
know" are looking for a win from the
college boys.
Team Triumphs Over
New Westminster
Varsity B Badminton team smashed
its way to victory Wednesday evening in the gym, to win from the Now
Westminster team by the score of
13-3. The mixed doubles were considerably better than at the beginning of the season, due to the exchanging of partners in the two first
couples. Ian Campbell put up an excellent game and has the makings of
a champion player. Irene Ramage and
Phae Van Dusen won their ladies'
with ease, while Ellen Gleed and
Bunny Pound played hard three-game
sets to make two more wins for Varsity,
The team came up against the
strong Vancouver players on Monday
evening, and after putting up a
plucky fight were defeated 0-10.

"The present government came into
power on an avowed policy which it
is now redeeming," stated Captain
Black, Speaker of the House of Commons, in an address to the Social Science Club of the University of British Columbia, held at the home of
Mrs. E. Mahon, Tuesday night. Stringent measures were required to alleviate the present unemployment distress in Canada, continued tne speaker
and these measures were now being
undertaken by the present government.
The rehabilitation of industry was
the theme of the Captain Black's address. How the present tariff would
accomplish this was lucidly out-lined,
and emphasis was placed on the potentialities of the increased duties to
prevent the invasion of tho home
market by unfair competition from
the outside. The anti-dumping feature of the present tariff legislation
was pointed out as being formulated
to prevent the destruction of Canadian industry by industrially stronger
nations.
The consumer was adequately protected, Captain Black assured his audience, by the plenary powers vested
in the hands of the Executive to
check the Canadian manufacturer who
should attempt the exploitation of
the Canadian consumer. This power
was judiciously exercised, he added,
illustrating its efficiency with the example of the Canadian Glass Manufacturers, who had had protection on
their industry removed because of exploitation of the consumer.
Captain Black gave an analytical
survey of the tariff legislation just
enacted, portraying the effects it
would have on inter-emplre and foreign trade.
Captain Black concluded his address
by replying to questions which were
asked him at the close of his speech.
SOCCERITES PROMISE
STURDY OPPOSITION
Capllano will provide the opposition for the Varsity second division soccerites, Saturday, at Dunbar
Park.
The college squad has lost two
straight games now, but has not had
the best of luck. At any rate if the
team produces the same form as last
week it will take a lot of beating.
At the same time the executive of
the club fully realizes the enormity
of the task which faces the Students.
Accordingly the strongest possible line up will take tho field. Alan
Todd will return to the forward line
at outside left, while the diminutive
Cooke will cross over to inside right.
There were a number of injuries sustained last week but all the victims
will be fit tomorrow. Roberts and
Chalmers whose form has been brilliant of late, will team up at back,
while Kozoolin will be pivot flanked
by Wright (H) and Buckley, two of
the most destructive halves in the
league. The front line will be led by
the cherubic Costain and Dave Todd,
who takes his football rather seriously
will perform at inside left. Bunny
Wright will cavort on the right wing
to complete the line.
Club Paper Discusses Van Dine
(continued from page 1)
and evolutional point of visw Start
ing to produce them himself, the Benson, Canary, Greene, Bishop and Scarab Murder Cases appeared within
five years.
This period has brought wealth to
compensate for early years of struggle
against poverty, but he will write only
one more detective book before becoming Willard Huntingdon Wright
again. In poetic language he says:
"What I want most is to go travelling in the realms of learning, and
to write books of my adventures
there—I shall again tread the long,
weary path to personal fulfilment,
which has no end but which leads ever
upward to the stars; for only in an
effort to achieve that which is beyond
all human achievement does the restless spirit of man find solace. Tbe
bitterest of all disillusions are the
realities we have managed to grasp."
King George, Herbert Hoover, Premier Baldwin, Lloyd George, Bernard
Shaw and other notables find relaxation and nerve tonic in tbe detective
story. It meets the recreational needs
of all classes, from the college professor to the "most primitive and
untutored reader." "Good detective
stories appeal directly to the intelligence; they are a source of mental
stimulation."
"Van Dine's style is scholarly without being pedantic — his prose is
smooth and beautifully flowing—and
his work indicates learning and considerable originality—his writing is
at times very  witty."
Turret  Hath Charms!
Appease his first outburst of anger with a
Turret—excuses will
be more readily
accepted after the
mellow and soothing
comforts of a good
smoke.
