SMwt. DfWfl Kftlflrts. 26-15
Introducing the none system of defense to Mentor Basketball tanks, Vur
slty's flrst-sti'lng hoop squad unleaswl n (Ightliig uttuch ihai paved the way
for a 26-15 victory over the Crusaders at I' H. C. Gym.. Thursday night.
Despite the ' cavy odd* agnlust  them the Collegians outplayed their more
experienced opponents al every turn and thet ould he no dmibl as to the
better team.
The opening canto was marked by clone checking with the Knights
having much dlftlcully In penetrating
the student defense. Varsity seemed
to be careless ou the attack and missed several opportunities that looked
Uke certain baskets. Johnny McRae
opened • the score but Laurie Nicholson evened matters with a pair of
foul shots. Rollins Anally managed to
break through but the Collegians staged in tho running through a nice effort
by Cy Lee. Play now became rather
loose and Crusaders took the lead
with a long shot and three converted
foul throws and at half-time were
two points up, 9*7.
The seoond frame was all Varsity.
Berto tied the score with a long one
and a minute later the students forged
ahead, to stay there throughout the
remainder of the struggle. The
Knights were again having trouble in
breaking through the Collegians and
were resorting to long shots with but
little success. Varsity's attack waa
working perfectly with every member
of the forward line getting Into tbe
scoring column while the Zone defense
proved a pussle that the visitors could
not fathom.
It would be impossible to credit any
member of the College squad with being outstanding. Cyril Lee, who was
the leading scorer with seven points,
combined Well with Laurie Nicholson
and Tommy Berto at forward while
Arnold Henderson and Robbie Chapman formed a sound defense.
Immediately after the game, members of the team held a short conference with Dr. G. E. H. Montgomery,
who is to take the boys In hand. The
new coach has a world of experience
which should be of great value to the
squad, and his coming will, beyond
doubt, be a big boost to Basketball at
the University. The Collegians are
again tied for third place ln tha
League and should, with a reasonable
amount of practice, make a place In
the play-offs, thereby regaining some
of the prestige that has been lost in
the last two years,
University of Montreal Plans
More College Constructions
Everything for the actual construction of the new building, of the University of Montreal on Maplewood
Avenue will be in readiness within
two months. Tenders for the general
contract will be called ln 15 days
and received until Tuesday, February
26. Tenders for Electrical work, plum
blng, heating, ventilation and mechanical trades, will be called later.
The project will take years to complete. Money collected trom the Government and by public subscription
will not be sufficient to cover the
expenses entailed. When finished, the
new university buildings will contain
all the faculties with the exception
of polytechnl, philosophy and high
commercial studies. The polyclinic
hospital, the faculty of medicine, law,
science, dentistry, the library, and a
vast auditorium, will alt be Included tn
the new buildings which will havo a
frontage of 1,200 feet on Maplewood
and a depth of 800 feet.

Twenty members of the University
of Washington Glee Club under the
direction of Professor Charles W.
Lawrence will present a concert lu
the Auditorium at the University of
British Columbia on Monday evening,
January 27. Although this ls the thirtieth annual tour of the club, this is
Its first appearance before a Canadian
The program, consisting largely of
Russian folk songs and classics, is
varied by quartet numbers, vocal and
Instrumental solos, and a comedy skit.
A medloy, composed aud arranged by
Mr. Lawence, with the assistance of
the members of the club, combines
classical and popular songs Into a
colorful number that wins hearty applause. Each year the members of
the club present a different medley
which has become a number on the
program that is anticipated with a
great deal of pleusure by those who
have enjoyed previous concerts.
A noteworthy departure from the
traditional glee club performance is
the appearance of the club in Russian
costume, in keeping with the motif of
the program. A truck load of specially
designed scenery and lighting fixtures
will add u scenic touch to the evening's entertainment, particularly ln
Part Three, "On the March to Siberia." Here a snow machine Is, used to
give the effect ot a band of prisoners
being led, under guard, through a blizzard. As is the custom In Russia, they
sing, even when being taken to imprisonment and slavery.

Busing his statements upon careful
observation of the productive capacity of the countries, their population
and the "aesthetic background" of
their people, Mr. K. J, Cromie, publisher of the "Vancouver Sun," predicted a great future for China and
Japan In his lecture on "Economic
Impressions ot the Orient," in Arts
100 on Friday.
Mr. Cromie was of the opinion that
with a people potentially great, China
will develop a democratic government,
an organisation and adequate means
ot transportation which will make her
an outstanding nation. She la greatly
handicapped by the fact that much ot
the territory at her outlets Is con*
trolled by foreign powers.
"Japan," said Mr. Cromie, "will play
virtually the same role in the east
which England plays iu the west."
In a comparatively short period she
has developed trom a farming and
fishing island into a highly organized
Industrial country.
spoke briefly on Manilla, Slam, "one
of the quaintest little places In the
world." Java, "the Garden of Eden of
the East, and India, which he described as a "sorry mess," due to
overcrowding, lack of sanitation, and
the great numbers of sacred animals
which seriously cut Into the food supply.
In Egypt Mr. Cromie described the
Valley of the Kings and the Great
Pyramids. He was of the opinion that
the Mediterranean countries, with the
exception of Italy and northern Africa
have had their day.
Mr. Cromie was impressed with the
frugality and homely characteristics
of the French people. He believed that

Mr. James Gibson who opened the
debate for the affirmative first welcomed the guests. He opened bin debate by defining total disarmament
as the abolition of all instruments ot
war and then went on to show that
as we enter into the second decade of
peace after the Armistice there ls a
situation of Intensity and mingled feelings. The Great War, he said, was a
thing of the past, but lt had left behind it a new spirit and sentiment
which is leading to total disarmament
and world peace. Mr. Gibson went on
to develop the four main points ot his
argument, which were: first, that the
facts of national experience show that
total disarmament is essential; second, that the forces underlying competitive armaments direct the knowledge and energy nf \r\in into dangerous paths;  third, that the two mon-

Ranking fourth In the country with
foreign student enrollment, the University of Southern California has
gained International prominence as an
institution where the foreign students
come to study American Ideals and
methods. S. C. has, according to the
tenth annual report of the Institute
of International Education, 462 students from other countries. It ls only
headed by Columbia University with
899, New York University with 786,
nnd University of California with 651.
The nearest approach t_ the Trojan
enrollment is University of Washington with 320. and Harvard University
with 298.
China for the past seven years has
sent more students to the United
states than any other country. In the
year 1928-29 they led all nations with
1287 students enrolled out or 9686 foreign students pursuing their studies
In this country. The closest rival to
the oriental country was Canada with
1122, then came Philippines, 1073;
Japan, 814; Russia, .01; and Kngland
with 269.

fourth, that public opinion is behind
the work of peace and total disarmament. He cited the Kellogg and Locarno pacts as beacon lights on the
road tu the achievement of disarmament. Those who champion war today
lack all worthy ideals, said the speaker finally.
Mr. Eric Gibbs, Alberta Rugby player, opened his speech by declaring
that only once In history had there
been any suggestion ot total disarmament and that this proposal by the
Soviets had been rejected. He stated
that fear and distrust is the real root
of war, not armaments, aud that only
the removal of the real cause could
give permanent peace, He believed
that reduction ot* armanents would
come out of the removal of distrust
and that the method for this would be
to F-t up an international government
which would be backed by force. Mr.
GlbbB thought that the Kellogg Pact
was merely a manifestation of an
emotion and that in a crisis would
count for nothing. Therefore, armed
force is necessary to protect security.
Reduction of armaments may come
but only through the removal of distrust.
Mr. Harry Freeman, chairman of
the Debating Union, attacked the negative in a strong and powerful manner. He contended that fear comes as
a result of armaments, which are
really a stimulus of war, and that
consequently the rooting out of fear
will come only as a result ot total
disarmament. The objects of war,
thought Mr. Freoman, were for nations to hold what thoy have and to
gain trom others what they have not.
He quoted, to show that armaments
had made the Great War Inevitable.
Furthermore, armaments are maintained In anticipation of war. A sol-
dlor, naturally wants to show his
training, and each country Is tempted

Graduate Discusses Debating Situation
While debating has vindicated Itself to a curtain extent by
coming out of tlie recent Inter-colleglate contest on tlie right side
of the ledger, It Is by no means completely re-established.
The whole future of this activity depends upon Us ability to
hold student Interest. The only possible way to do this is to discuss more attractive subjects. Tlie modern student is filled to
nausea with orations on "world peace," "disarmament" and
"dominion status." The mechanically reiterated hyperboles and
apostrophes on "parliament of man" and "brotherhood of nations" are about as stimulating as freshman themes.
Probably the whole trouble lies in the system of conducting
the debates. The present conception of a debato is a meeting of
two teams each of which proceeds to recite an encyclopedic
agglomeration of facts climaxed by a highly sentimental outburst of vocal panegyrics.
Before people will become debate fans they will have to be
guaranteed real entertainment. The English system, where the
sheer brilliance and humor of the speakers make the discussion
of even trivial subjects worth hearing, is more likely to draw consistent audiences than the present Information bureau methods.
We are pleased to learn that the recent debate drew a record-
breaking crowd of 275 people, a number of whom were students,
and one member of Council. But this we believe was due to the
incessant efforts of the Debating Union executive in selling the
event. In addition, Council's bluff about forbidding future Intercollegiate debates may have had some effect (though forming
a bad precedent).
If the Debating Union wishes to ensure good attendance at
Its performances It would be well advised to do something to Improve the presentations, preferably by removing the elephantine
In their attempts to give a valuable and unique Valedictory
Gift, the classes of *31 have made considerable progress. Already
great interest has been aroused among prominent men of the
Province as well as in the University. Dr. Sage, Mr. Mathews,
Mr. Ridington, Mr. R. L. Reid and Judge Howay, are a few who
are lending their whole-hearted support.
As an evidence of the approbation with which the University
authorities view the scheme the Board of Governors passed a bill
granting almost one hundred dollars to build a cabinet to house
the collection. The cabinet, of handsome oak with wide glass
doors, was completed (luring the holidays and now stands in the
Seminar room.
The classes of '31 appreciate this gesture of the Hoard of
Governors and they trust that the completed collection will justify
the expenditure.
•     •see
The Graduating class of Arts '30 at the present moment Is
beginning to realise with many qualms that in a short while
they will have to be embarking on some career or other. It does
not require a prophet to say that a fairly large percentage will
return for another year of this University as students in Education. Also we may state without much fear of contradiction that
most, of them are cursing Inwardly that they have to throw away
their time and money for a year before embarking on their career proper.
We feel that considering how many graduates turn to teaching, it is time some protest was made as regards the total inadequacy of this whole course. After four years of Intellectual
stimulation (more or less) these unfortunate would-be teachers
are forced to endure an utter spoonfeeding from which It will take
them about Ave years to recover. It Is small wonder that many excellent teachers are being lost through their fear of utter Intellectual demoralisation, which Ih their fate if they take Education.
It takes someone with tough mental fibre or low Intelligence to
stand the strain of a year devoted almost entirely to Inanities.
It Is not tbat wo are condemning teaching as a profession
anything but that. What we feel is that the first tlmea novice faces
his class he should have more to aid him than faint memories of
previous agonies suffered In Ids practice weeks. As far us Education goes at the present moment, the unfortunates who undergo
it might just hm well put lu a fow weeks of observation and practice teaching In the schools after graduating, with a Treat deal
more benefit to tholr brains and nervous energy. Connequently,
we consider that it Is time tho Department of Education's futile
waste of the public's and the students' money was stopped. That
there Ih scope for Improvement In the methods used, even In the
present system, Is shown not only by reports from other universities, but also by the few real aids to teaching, which do
appear, strange though It may seem, occasionally In thi. University's course In Education.
Debating at the University is admittedly In a bad way at present, and
it appears that II' something drastic is
not done in the Immediate future it
will soon be as dead as the proverbial

There should be at least three Independent, or rather Interdependent
organisations In forsensles at the University, with a central executive.
The Dabster. Olub
The flrat of these organisations
would be a re-organized Debates Union
or Debaters' Club, which would form
an honorary society limited to around
thirty members, all of which should
be either outstanding debaters or students prominent in debates executive
work. This membership would be
selected from a waiting list of fully
qualified applicants, with rigid standards for admittance.
This organisation ahould hold fortnightly meetings, preferably In the
evening, when for Instance U. B. C,
debating teams could he cross-examined and criticised. A lively program
arranged among star debaters exclusively should raise the standard of
IA M. C. Inter-colleglate debating
teams. At least, this would be the
only real Justification tor a continuance of an organisation such as the
Debating Union.
The Public Speaking Club
Secondly there should be a blterary
and Debating Society, or Public Speaking Club, open to all students of the
U. B. C. who are lo enroll.' This Club
would carry on a lively program, to
which students could come either as
members or onlookers. The meetings
would take the form of debates, open
forums, piock trials, five minute
speeches, addresses by prominent public speakers, impromptu discussions
and various "stunts." The main object would be to get every student to
"break Into" public speaking, by flrst
saying a few words and eventually
encaging In Important npeechea. This
would be Hie "training ground" for
future Inter-colleglnie debaters.
Perhaps, however, It would be hi-ller
'(i i||\|i|e this body into a Men's Public HpeakliiK Club and a Women's Public Speaking Club. The new "Scrap
Hook" Club could probably be used as
a nucleus for such an organization.
The main difference between the
Debaters' Club and the Public Speaking Club would be that tho first would
develop and perfect outstanding debaters   while  the  second  would  otter

every student the opportunity of learning io speuk ln public, an accomplishment that should be an essential part,
of a university education.
The 8tudents' Parliament
Thirdly, there should be a resurrection of the old Students' Parliament',
or the earlier Sigma Delta Kappa.
This organization, also, should be open
to all students who cure to enroll, but
perhaps later limited to a definite
number of "seats" and "constituencies." it would be conducted along Hie
lines of the I). ('. Provincial Parliament, and would thus give students
a chance lo learn parliamentary procedure, anil in discuss University al-
fall's Hilly, The "Parliament" ol
course, would have no legislative

laliicil, lints Increasing student Idler
est and alionilaii'c. Such "party"
leellna on ('Diversity topics properly
organized, Is perhaps preferable to no
feeling at all, which Is Ihe present
suite of affairs.
The inn In difference, therefore between the Students' Parliament and
the other two organizations, is that
the former is specialised along one
distinctive activity, with a special organisation of its membership und procedure, nnd perhaps the* presence of
"parties", a condition undesirable In
the other clubs.
Agrioulture Discussion Club, Ete.
In addition to these organisations it
may be desirable to re-organise an
Agriculture Discussion Club, and a
Science Discussion Club, to discuss
subjects of particular Interest to student, of those faculties. The Angle
Discussion Club has been successful
In Ihe past, and could well continue
as before.
The Perenalo Bxeoutlve
In the past, co-ordination has been
the great weakness In debating organisations at tlie U. B, C. It. is
therefore proposed, that, in addition
to a very small executive ln each of
the bodies outlined, there shall be a
Forensic Executive or Forensic Council to organise, control and co-ordinate
all rorenslc activities In the Unlvers*
Ity, and In particular, t. conduct Inter-
colleglate debating. This Forensic
Executive should consist (I) a President, elected by the A. M. S. or combined clubs; (2) a Debates Manager,
appointed by this executive; (3) a
Secretary, elected by this executive
from among its members; (4) The
Publicity Agent, appointed by this executive; (6) the President of the Debaters' Club; (6) the President of the
Public Speakers' Club; (7) and the
Premier or Speaker of the Students'
Parliament. In addition, the presidents of other debating and public
speaking clubs, and Class Literary
Representatives could be given seats
on this executive.
The duties ol thin Executive would
be to conduct try outs, and classify
debaters, arrange all debates and public speaking c'ontests, and control debating awards. Its President should
be a member of the l„ S. E., which in
turn would have a representative on
the Student. Council
i The Debates Advisory Board
Again, there should be a Debates
Advisory Board, of about eight mem
hers, consisting of faculty members,
graduates antl other authorities on debating, who would bo prepared to act
In an advisory capacity to the De-
bales Executive. Members of this
Hoard could act as Judges and critics
when desired.
Debates Coaches
Finally there should be a Debates
coach or coaches, paid or voluntary,
who would be prepared to devote some
time to the training of debaters at

Dublin, January 13.—Recruiting of
Hie new volunteer reserve army of
50,000 men and officers for the Irish
Free State Is meeting with considerable opposition.
Most of the trouble so far has centered on the attempts to enroll National University students as officers
in the new army. Some of it ls undoubtedly spopsored by the secret, illegal Irish Republican Army which Is
still In existence.
Exciting scenes took plaoe at Na*
(tonal University College when Free
State army officers appeared to enroll
students tn the Officers' Training
Corps, A large number of students
objected, the gist of their protest being: "It Ih tint right that ihe university should be turned Into a recruiting olllce."
Alter the speeches the stUdiUta
rushed Into the room where the gray
officers were enrolling applicants add
threw a number of "slink" bombs.

"When You Say That,
Smile," Say Seniors
Believe It or not, tour out of five
Seniors who Infest these parts are
possessed of a smile, Even their best
friends say so. We have their Totem
write-ups to prove it. While previously
unaware of the universally hyena-like
physiognomy nf the class, there must
lie truth In II. somewhere, for It's all
written down In print.
Strange as It may soetn, forty-seven
fourth year men and women have
"winning smiles." Statistics seem to
prove It. Thirty-two others havu merely
"cheerful smiles," evidently they do
not win so much. Sixteen have plain
"Kinlles." They must be Ihe losers
Verily the campus must hu a terrible
place for a nervous man when so
many "danger-lines" are constantly on
Then there are the "personalities,"
Of course most write-ups are personalities, but we refer to personalities
within personalities, twenty -seveu
Seniors and Benlorltas have "charming personalities," Others (mostly the
"macs") have "winning personalities." Some are not so well endowed
and singularly have just "personality."
In a previous Issue a warning was
advertised threatening publication of
particularly vile write-ups. Although
many, many such have been received
we realise that publishing them would
penalise the anthee (so to speak)
rather than the author. Consequently
we append three examples culled from
previous "Totems." The style Is the
exact duplicate of many of the at-prea-
en written write-ups.

Be careful, for It is rumored that he
has negro blood In his veins. At nny
rate, as a pre-med. he's a keen dissector of the heart. Don't let his cas-
ualness discourage you, Por remember
he's an Inter-colleglate debater, and
as president of his class when they
were Freshies, "he was just the applesauce."
Hosy cheeks, toppling Into an expansive smile, that is—as we flrst see
him. Although — 's studies press
heavily on his attention, he can spend
six of his eight waking hours gabbing

himself to be a doctor by courses ln
Zoology, Geology, and one-arm car-

over a new leaf, he says. Indeed, Indeed; repentance oft before I swore

The students would wander disconsolately over the campus soarohlpg tor
something to occupy their minds.
Some might even go to lectures.
Others possibly would go to the Library. The Caf. would be deserted for

"What Is the use?" they would mutter

Long, euphonious snorea would reverberate from the Council room

whet do we AndT We toddled along to
the new hoop emporium last week to
see the Pride of Point Qrey engage In
a titanic struggle with the haughty
Crusaders. We quite expectd to be
foroed to climb In through a window
to secure a view of the battle but

door keeper was dosing agalnBt his
counter and tew feeble moans arose
to "cheer" on tho wurrlors who were
striving for their Alma Mater. We
vapored around the floor and counted
the faithful. There were ten spectators exclusive of the referee.
Now It appears to us that this ts a
disgusting situation. These athletes
won the tilt against one of the strongest aggregations In the loop and one
which before the Christmas harvest
beat the alleged collection of super
stars who wore the Oold and Blue.
What Is more they did so without
support, lt this condition ot affairs

U.B.C. Downs Normals
In Leapjixturo, 3-0
U.B.C. Women's grass hockey won
3-0 from the weak Normal team on
Saturday afternoon at Connaught
Park.. In an earlier game they won
five nothing without dlfflulty but Saturday with Normal fielding only nine
players U.B.C. could not scoro after
the first ten minutes and with great
difficulty prevented an adverse score.
The game opened with Muriel Harvie taking the ball down the field and
scoring within the first halt minute.
In the next few minutes the ball was
rushed down constantly but the forwards could not find the net and the
ball was only to be rushed down und
put out on a wild shot again. However the right wing again got Into
action and by clever passing another
score was made. In u few minutes the
students tallied once more making a
total of three goals lu tun minutes,
from tbeu on the lack or practice
and complete lack of condition of the
players showed. The forwards and
halfbacks were forced to assume the
defensive aud the game till halftlme
whs featured hy rushes from Normal.
Mamie Orey secured the ball at the
twenty-five yard line near her own
goal and took it up herself outwitted
the U.B.C. defense easily and was
stopped only by a splendid save by
Mable McDonald, goalie. Betty Turn-
hull, another Normal inside forward,
Worried the fullbacks and halves consistently,
In the second half U. B. O. made a
few rushes at the beginning but had
no luck In finding the net and in a
few minutes again assumed the de*
fensive and with difficulty prevented
the shorthanded Normal team from
scoring. Audrey Hloka at halfback,
played strongly throughout the whole
game, supporting the forwards ably.
She was easily the plok ot the de*
fense players as was Muriel Harvie
of the forwards. The usual practice
wtll he held on Wednesday afternoon
for players and anyone who cannot
come out Is asked to report at onoe.
The lineup was: M. McDonald, If.
Ross, E.' Teppo, A. Hicks, A. van
Vooght, M, Mosorop, M. Harvie, O.
Sellars, A. Burrldge, M. McDonald,
M. Manning.
The Varsity team was defeated 4-1
by Britannia whom they held to a
scoreless draw in an earlier game.
The game was Britannia's from the
first and the students lost to a squad
which was in better condition. The
forwards rushed the students goal and
scored four times to the Students'
once. The latter could not get started
and the fullbacks and goalie had a
hard time keeping the score down to
for practise on Wednesday.
The lineup was: M. Harris, M. 8to-
ble, M. Eraktne, D. Thompson, M.
Cassellman, J. Cameron, D. Wylle,
N. Ferguson, I. Macarthur, R. Mowatt,

At Southern California approximately 42 nations are represented in the

the others. He cited the adverse effect of armaments on China. Next,
Mr. Freeman dramatically described
the psychological effect of a military
parade, of any military gesture, and
ho demonstrated that militarism stimulates imperialism. Armaments are
the curse of the world and the very
safety of the human race depends on
tbelr abolition. In short, said Mr.
Freeman, the choice lies between total disarmament and extermination.
Mr. Don MacKensie, the second
speaker for the negative, advocated a
central international authority backed
by force. In answer to his opponents'
(mint that nrmaments led to competition he denied that there would be
any competition except, perhaps, with
the moon! His idea of disarmament
was that Canada could be called totally disarmed. What Is needed Is the
International and not the national
viewpoint, so that there may be se
ciirlty now and ever, and Mr. MncKon-
Tile thought that there were already
Indications of success in that direction.
The rebuttals which followed, displayed plenty of debating ability for
both teams. Mr. GlbbB again reminded
his audience that the cause of war
lies deeper than armaments; Mr. Freeman again made a very fine effort to
show that a police force alone is not
practical protection unless there is
total disarmament and that armaments today provoke war; Mr. Mac-
Kon.le said emphatically that* any
force moans that there Is not total
disarmament; and Mr. Gibson besides
refuting a large number of his opponents' points in detail reminded his
audience that In the definition of total
dlsarament was provision for ample
police forces.
During the evening the Musical Society provided the several orchestra
selections. Judges for the evening
were Mr. H. Tupper, Mr. E. H. Munro,
and Professor H. iJay.
