House In Danger
As Creek Floods
Marine Drive Bridge Washed Away
Two Buildings In Imminent Danger!
Swollen streams, the aftermath of the recent phenomenal storm, played havoc yesterday in the University Area. The
Marine Drive Bridge near the Anglican Theological College,
crashed down into the ravine as rushing torrents undermined
the supports. As tons of 'earth pour into the swiftly-growing
ravine the nearby residence of Mrs. Lefevre is in imminent
The flood-water* caused by the ex-<
ceptlonally heavy run-off from the
stadium-site have widened and deepened the gully in the sandstone cliff.*
About 10:30 this morning the bridge
collapsed into the ISO-foot ravine.
At present the house and garage
of Mrs. Lefevre are in grave danger.
The swift torrent is undermining the
base of the cliff on which they stand
and from time to time tons of day
descend into the waters. Interested
spectators eagerly wait for the cliff
to collapse beneath the buildings, for
the widening crack* Indicate that the
disaster can not long be averted.
Another buiding, tha gardener's
home, is in an equally dangerous
position. So far some large trees
whose roots bind the cliff solidly have
prevented It from joining the bridge
at the bottom.
' Building and Bridge in Danger
The bridge on the Mall is also
threatened, for the swift current is
washing the soft clay down and the
head of the ravine is receding towards this bridge. So far the head
of the gully has backed up about
thirty feet.
Where ithe Marine Drive bridge
was formerly is now a yawning gulf
60 feet wide and 150 to 200 feet deep.
Where the Lefevre residence stands
th ravine has widened to about 200
feet as great chunks of the cliff have
crumbled, and it has deepened to 300
Many Varsity students braved the
teeming rain to see the rhmage. Murray Mather and Cam Gorrie were
present to see if any o£ the stadium
drains were coming down. Stu Keate
tried to organize a sweepstake on
the time that the garage would fall.
Theolog students and irominent the-
olog college officials predominated.
Keate and the Crab, the intrepid reporters, stuck around tilt they were
soaked then retired to the Pub to
eat soup and drip
Club Rushing
A new system is about to be established on our campus. Club rushing will come into practice for the
first time at U.B.C. when the executive of the New Literary Forum, hold
an open meeting and tea in the
Women's Lower Common Room on
Friday afternoon. Judge Helen Gregory MacGill will be the guest speaker
and Dean Bolbrt, Honorary president
of the club, will tell of its aims and
Interesting Speaker
Mrs. MacGill ia judge cf the Juvenile Court in Vancouver and has
hitherto proved a most interesting
speaker to University women. Her
subject is to be "Moderate Developments in Juvenile Court Work." All
women students genuinely interested
are invited to attend. Judge MacGill
will speak at 3 o'clock sharp.
The Literary Forum was founded
twelve years ago and proved efficient and popular for many years. Of
late, interest has somewhat subsided;
this year the club has been completely reorganized to meet the needs of
the women of today.
Insignia Chosen
In order to allow women students
to become familiar with the new "Literary Forum", Friday's "rushing" tea
is being given. The president announces that a club insignia has been
chosen and that pins are expected
soon. The executive sponsoring the
new project are Rosemary Edmonds,
president, Barbara Baird, Margaret
Biggs, Lennie Price and Helen Braid-
Damage caused on the campus by
the storm that has been raging all
week is estimated at several thousand dollars. Mr. J. D. Lee, building
superintendent, gave th-> Ubyssey an
outline of the troubles.
The steam line to the Theologclal
College is blocked with water. The
electrical ducts to the same places
are also swampea. A group of men
Is working on these linos with two
pumps capable of pumping five hundred gallons an hour.
Roof Trouble
The Library Building has a leaking roof—the extent of the damage
cannot be estimated for several days.
Other buildings, including the Aggie, Applied Science, Science, and
Auditorium have serious roof troubles.
In the Auditorium, a burst pipe has'
placed one room in wreckage. Water
from the pipe seeped through down
into the cafeteria and threatened to
flood the place.
"The steam pipes behind the Library are flooded with seven feet of
water," stated Mr. Lee. "It will be
quite a while before we can definitely tell the extent of the damage.
It may mean the installation of an
entirely new steam syytem for the
permanent buildings. The temporary
buildings suffered much more htan
the Library and Science buildings."
Pipes Torn Down
With the groat pressure of water
that was on the roofs Monday, the
workmen were forced to tear away
the down pipes, which, in their frozen state, were not carrying away the
water fast enough. About four of
these pipes on every building were
It will probably be late next week
before the full report of damage will
be Issued. In the meantime, it is
safe to say that the los3 will mount
into the thousands.

Great Fortitude
In Spite of Weather, "Ubyssey"
Comes Out As Usual
Anti-War Council
Receives Support
From Campus Clubs
A new University organization was
added to the list Wednesday afternoon when twenty representatives
from major University groups met in
Arts 103 to discuss the feasibility of
an Anti-war Council on the campus.
Owing to unfavourable weather conditions, many other delegates were
unable to attend.
Resolutions Carried
As chairman of a temporary committee, Cyril Chave offered two resolutions which, he said, set forth the
purpose of the projected Council.
Both resolutions were adopted after
considerable discussion and redrafting. They were, first, "Resolved that
this meeting condemns war as an instrument of national policy, and particularly condemns also those institutions within nations ttiat foster the
war spirit," and, second, "Resolved,
that, in the event of a threat of war,
this meeting is In agreement that
students should work unceasingly for

Heroically overcoming all obstacles,
the Ubyssey staff published a paper
on Wednesday, and indeed would
have had the usual issue ready on
Tuesday if lectures had not been cancelled.
Monday morning, Lloyd Hobden
left his home in West Vancouver at
7 a.m. He arrived at Varsity at 10:45
where he met Dorwin Baird. Later,
Alan Morley and Archio Thompson
reached the Pub office, and the four
raided the Players club costume room
to get dry'clothes.
Player* Club Useful
Lloyd outfitted himself in a pair
of formal trousers which were about
six inches too small for him, and
a swallow-tall coat which parted half
way up hi* back to reveal nothing
but him, and he capped it all with
a C.O.T.C. hat. Archie put on another pair of tight trousers with purple stripes, instead of his riding
breeches, while Dorwin donned a red
riding coat and a straw hat. Alan
stripped to the skin, and outfitted
himself in a pair of black trousers
and an old Varsity blazor which covered only in part  his hairy chest.
The CampU3 Creb added the final
touch to this sartorially correct outfit by walking about in his bare
Library Rescued
To get stories, these hard -working
men tramped all over the campus,
while at the library, the Crab noticed that water was leaking through
the roof and overflowing in the magazine room, and running down to
the stacks. Ho organized a mop and
pail brigade of the pubs4 on and himself went to the auditorium to get
4rapaulins to catch the water as It
fell from the roof. Undaunted by
this slight delay, the editorial staff
went to work again, bu: it was decided to cancel Tuesday lectures and

Scarlet Fever About
Look Out for Colds
"Thanks to the Ubyssey and student co-operation the threatened
scarlet fever epidemic has not materialized," stated Mrs. Lucas.
Once again prompt action on the
part of the University Health Office
has averted what might have been
a serious epidemic. However students are warned to regard even the
slightest cold as a danger sign. Reference to paga 48 article 3 of the
Handbook will refresh the memory
of students who have forgotten htat
all cases of illness should be reported
to the Health Office immediately. In
the case of colds, students should
remain at home during the first two
That student opinion Is behind the move for the improvement of the stadium drainage system but that doubt exists
as to whether now is the opportune time to construct a grandstand, was the prevailing sentiment expressed by a member of
the Engineering Faculty and prominent students when interviewed recently by The Ubyssey. All agreed that the drains
must be opened but many thought it too much of a risk to erect
stands before the proposed drainage improvements were proved.'
s> Fred Bolton, President of Men's
Athletics, waa emphatic in support of
both the drainage improvement* and
th* immediate construction of a grandstand, financed by a bond Issue.
"In order to keep the Interest in
inter-collegiate athletics alive, I be-'
lieve it ia necessary to erect the stadium aa soon as possible," state* Mr.
Bolton. "The drainage at the present
time is good, and with the proposed
Improvements, there is no doubt that
the field will be one of the best
drained in Vancouver.
"Although it will cost 12,000 more to
finance the bond issue this year than
if the whole project were delayed a
year, it is very probable that a greater sum than the above will be saved
through the present low cost of the
building materials and low Interest
rate; with the present trend of price*
these costs will likely rise substantially during the coming year."
Civil Engineer's Views
Upon being interviewed on this subject, Professor A. B. Llghthall of the
Department of Civil Engineering stated that he was in favor of the erection of the grandstand under Murray
Mather's plan, although there is the
possibility that a more conservative
estimate could be made of its cost
To his mind, the question to be decided was whether or not the chance
should be taken of not being able to
pay the $2,000 interest on the bonds for
the first year. Professor Llghthall
said that no concern should be felt
over the possibility of insufficient access to the playing-field due to poor
drainage, for even this year two or
three big games could have been played.
Macdonald Favors Postponement
Don Macdonald, well-known senior
and Sports Editor of The Ubyssey,
when interviewed said:
(Please turn to Page 3)
The Players Club announces that
it has definitely entered the Provincial Drama Festival with the most effective of this year's Christmas Plays,
"A Moment of Darknesx"
The executive of tho club admit
that they do not expect this play
to win any high honors, but it is felt
that, if n beginning is made this year
the tradition will be carried on. One
fortunate aspect of the production is
that Mr. William Buckingham, an
outstanding Almnus, will direct it.
President Enthusiastic
President Klinck when interviewed,
expressed his delight at the initiative
of the club in taking this step, which
he heartily endorsed. The president
agreed   that   the   University   Players
has been defrayed in part by the
Players Club Alumni wno generously donated half cf their Friday night
proceeds to the Club. The remaining
expenses will be made up by the
selling of tickets to th.? Drama Festival.
There are twelve entries in the Festival, among them three from Victoria, and it will be of great interest
to see how the Varsity players stack
up beside other dramatic organizations. All those who wish to attend
this outstanding event in Vancouver
dramatic circles may cbtain tickets
from Miss Ruth Armitnge, or any
member of tha Players Club.
Other convenors of this production
are Mr. Don Munroe, who will take
over the difficult position of Production Manager. Miss Mary McGeer
will have charge of the costumes,
Miss Jo Henning of the Properties,
Miss Vivian Hood of make-up, and
Mr. Bob Thompson of scenery.
The Festival will take place in the
Avenue Theatre on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17, 18 and 19.

The first spot in this column this week
goes, of course, to the intelligent and far-seeing
organizers of the Anti-War Council who fathered the bright idea of bringing the high-school
infants into their campaign.
Of all the bone-headed ideas that ever hit
the campus, this is positively the worst.
If the Student's Council, the Faculty Council or someone in authority does not clamp
down on this before it goes any farther, we
might as well give up altogether and affiliate
ourselves with the Provincial Mental Hospital.
Our aims and methods may be different, but
the results are appallingly similar.
The Anti-War Council is vulnerable enough
to outside criticism, but just think what a
handle this will give anyone who is hostile
to their program.

Each student taking a university course has
to decide the problem of how much time he
should devote to his studies and how much
he should devote to extra-curricular activities.
The result of his decision will determine the
nature of the training which his college career
is going to give him.
The proportion of the student's activities
.will naturally vary with individual circumstances. To one who intends to make a life
career of the subject which he is studying, it
is most important that he make a good start,
and therefore he is perhaps justified in confining his attentions mainly to his academic
work, although he should try to avoid becoming a mere bookworm.
But to one who is taking a university
course as a general cultural foundation for
some non-academic specialized vocation, extracurricular activities should form an important
part of his training. If he keeps his nose in a
book for four years he is losing the social contacts and experiences which can be obtained
only during his period at college. When he
graduates he will be so busy trying to become
established in a career that he will have no
time for these broadening influences.
The university period is a golden opportunity for students, and hence they should try
to attain a definite conception of the reason
for which they are here. Older students and
alumni should be able to give them very helpful
advice in this connection.
Tomorrow Chi Omega Psi is being formally
installed by Delta Upsilon. At present there
are seven international fraternities on the
campus and four local ones. The international
fraternities claim more prestige and have an
advantage in rushing. Such a situation is bound
in some measure to divide the fraternity
world into two graups. The only solution is
for all campus fraternities to affiliate with international groups. We are glad that Chi Omega Psi is no more and that we can welcome
the advent of Delta Upsilon to the campus.
Another campus club is coming into being! We feel like continuing the Campus Crab's
tirade against the ilttle groups that clutter the
University. The Anti-War Council is perhaps
one of the most futile ideas that has come from
the student mind for many years. Other University organizations are concrete; they are
formed for a definite purpose, to study, to act
or to debate. But what is the purpose of the
Anti-War Council? To held meetings and discuss peace. They apparently do not intend to
do anything constructive for the cause of
Peace. If they were professed Pacifists they
would have reason for banding together. But
they refuse to be called Pacifists. They are
merely going to sit around and discuss peace.
The only benefits that can possibly accrue are
that the members will learn how to behave in
sewing circles. And the University critics will
laugh at the way student minds behave.
Now, to turn from the ridiculous to the
sublime, let us have a word with the Musical
Some of the old-timers in this vocalizing

and put on the quality of show they are capable of.  Now they have their chance.
They can do Gilbert and Sullivan. They
could have done last year's show far better
then they did. Will they do better this year?
The main thing is a close attention to detail. The singing and scenery was pretty good
in the Mikado. The acting, the costumes, the
grouping and the make-up was terrible.
They might take a hint from the Alumni
Players in the matter of make-up. All except
the last play of the four presented were well
made up.

What a Night
In spite of the Dean Clement
weather, which froze many radiators
and brought a rosy glow to the
cheeks of the lovely women gathered
there, the Aggie party, held Friday
night in the Vocational building, was
a huge success.
Each couplo upon entering, was
given a generous amount of stage
money with which to purchase the
various extras of the evening. Cider
was sold at $100 a glass, milk shakes
at $125. Housey-housey was $100 a
shot, with $1000 as the prize. Dancing which started at 9:30 was the
main attracion of the evening. Excellent music was supplied by Jack
Bickerton and his co-stars. Dean and
Mrs. Clement, Dr. and Mrs. Eagles
and Professor Lloyd were present,
and added to the unrestrained spirit
of gay, good fellowship which pervaded all the guests.
The climax of the evening came at
the close of the midnight supper,
when certain "unknown" parcels
were auctioned off at fabulous prices.
Alex. Wood was auctioneer and
"cooked" the bidding admirably. Dean
Clement and Dr. Eagles each purchased a bag of marbles, Bob For-
shaw was high bidder for a beautiful rattle, and Ralph Cudmore became tho proud possessor of the cutest little pair of baby panties. The
crowd went into a near-riot when a
scienceman, Hugh Godard, paid an
exhorbitant price for a nursing bottle filled with Grade A Certified
Milk. "That just proves that all sciencemen are suckers", temarked the
After the auction, the guests returned to the ballroom and danced
far into the night. "The best dance
of the season," was the general opinion. All arrangements were made by
the class of '35.
Anti-War Council
Receives Support

a peaceful solution, no matter what
national grievances may be involved."
Something More Concrete Needed
Delegates were favorably impressed
and were quick to offer the support
of their groups. Lionel Backler, sent
by the Students' League of Canada,
hailed the Anti-War Council as something new on the campus. "War is
becoming a major issue," he said,
"and students should be mobilized
against it. If the aim is strictly nonpartisan, we will do our best to aid
this movement, and to make it effective." Lionel Clarke, Y.M.CA.,
and Jean Fraser, S.C.M., both indicated that their organisations would
back the movement, although Miss
Fraser somewhat caustically gave it
as her opnlon that "something more
concrete than a movement and a rally
was required."
Mass Meeting
The first plunge of the Anti-war
Council Into campus affairs is to take
the form of a moss demonstration to
be held in the University auditorium
on Wednesday, Feb. 13. Attempts will
be made to have one o'clock lectures
cancelled, so that the ten speakers
scheduled to taka the platform may
have sufficient time at their disposal.
Representatives from the faculty as
well as from the student body will
speak, and after a good deal of argument it was decided thai the high-
schools be represented by speakers,
number not settled as yet.
High Schools Included
The advisability of including high
school speakers was hotly debated,
but M. Kuzych, burly, soft-spoken
delegate from King Edward High
School, persuaded the meeting as to
the soundness of the scheme, sketching graphicaly the anti-war work already accomplished in city schools.
There was no clanger, he said, of the
University body drawing ridicule as
"high school ltd," since the lower
schools would look to the University
for loaders. Thvidea was favoured
by a very slight majority.
A second meeting will be held in
Arts 103 at 3 o'clock or. Wednesday,
Jan. 30, at which a permanent committee will be appointed. Delegates
who were unable to attend the first
meeting are urgently requested to
be present.

Errors Explained
There were some amusing errors
which passed the usually meticulous
proof-readers in the rush: for instance speaking of the supposed fire
on the campu3 last Friday, the report stated that "There was no fire,
and it was not in the Arts building,
and th« janitors did not extinguish
it." Again, at the beginning of one
write-up it stated that it was "continued from page one." Then there
was a magnificent ad arnouncing the
Arts '37 party for Thursday, when
it was postponed for a week.
Many more errors might be found,
but they all demonstrate the handicaps under which the staff worked.
With the phone service practically
useless, and only ores good typewriter

the weather conditions and who had

Profesors In Politics
Is Debated Question
The question, "Should university
professors take active part ln the political field," is being debated across
Canada by students, faculty members
and outsiders.
The Board of Governors of the
University of Alberta recently made
a ruling that professor.] of that institution should be barred from political activity of any description.
The echoes of this statement
reached Toronto and the president
of the eastern university stated in
definite terms that ha agrees with
the Albertan decision. Several other
prominent faculty members made
statements. Here is tiie story that
appeared in the Toronto Varsity:
"It is essential that a university
professor have an unbiased opinion
on any political issue," Dr. Cody told
The Varsity when approached regarding the new ruling in Alberta which
prohibits members of the faculty and
staff of the University of Alberta
from taking part in politics. "Immediately upon accepting candidature
for any platform he speaks only in
the interests of his particular side of
the issue," the Piesiden; added, and
continued to explain that a university professor will have more wit if
he gives judgments as un expert in
his own department rather than as
a partisan of any party.
"I don't see how a professor can attend properly to business and at the
same time be a member of the legislature. A university professor is an
ordinary citizen and expresses his
views but in addition if he Is hi a
state university thera is u further obligation laid upon him to put whatever limitations his relations to the
university involve, upon his freedom
of speech. Furthermore, the university is the only place in the community where you can fairly expect
people to seek for the tiue interpretation of facts without bias. This ln
itself forbids the professor from becoming a partisan of any party."
There may be a distinction drawn
between a state university such as
University College and one which is
Independent such as Victoria, which
is privately endowed. Dr. W. T.
Brown, principal of Victoria College,
stated when inte; viewed. "It has frequently been asserted that in state
universities the professors are considered servants of the state and
therefore they have no right to take
part in party politics. But in privately-controlled institutions such as Victoria there has never been any attempt to  prohibit freedom."
Principal Wallace of University College expressed the same opinion.
"There is nothing more precious than
the academic tradition in a college,
The primary asset of the staff is their
permission to teach and express the
opinions which they believe and the
payment for this priceless privilege
is the use of common seme," Provost
Cosgrave of Trinity College refused
to comment.
One hundred student3 at Alberta,
incensed by the ruling signed a petition urging the Student's Council
to call a meeting of the Alma Mater
Society to discuss the situation.
When the appointed hour arrived
it was discovered that the affair had
not created sufficient interest to attract the necessary quorum, so the
meeting was not held. The president
of the Student's Council criticised the
students for their lack of interest:
"Regardless of the merits of the
question under consideration, the
meeting was well worth attending, as
it offered to students an opportunity
to express their opinions upon political and social princpiles of vital
interest not only to this University,
but to the whole province. If the
petitioners themselves regurd the failure of their meeting witli disappointment, they may lay the blame directly at the door of the student body
and more particularly at their own.
It was their own failure to canvass
adequately in advance the entire student body, coupled witn the ennui
and indifference of the latter, which
led to this lamentable fiasco.
"If this manifest lack of interest of
students in their own and community
affairs is prophetic of ihe future of
self-government on this campus, then
the cause of student democracy is
The attituda of local authorities
seems to be exactly opposite to the
view held by The Toronto faculty.
Although no definite statement has
been made concerning the matter recently, the fact that three members
of our faculty have been granted
leave of absence so that they may
engage in various public positions
seems to indicate that members of
the local Board of Governors do not
share the opinion held by their
brothers in Alberta.

The blistering Arabian sun poured
its shimmering rays on the burning
sands of the desert. Thc traveller
took a long pull at his water bottle
and continued bis long trek across
the wastes. Far off his keen eye discerned a pitiful figure, wandering
around in a wavering circle. Hurriedly kicking his desert ship (camel
to you) into a rapid trot, he bears
down upon the wreck, ond finds to
his horror that it is his old college
professor, who flunked him in English because ho couldn't spell. The
poor fellow's tongue, black and raw,
is hanging out of his mouth. His fact
is a mass of blisters, his eyes red and
sore. Water! Water! croaks the
prof. The traveller diga his hand
into his saddle bag, and extracts a
large, shining object, tosses it to his
old professor, and rapidly gallops
away into the distance. Is it a flask?
The professor crawls, painfully to the
object and greedily open* it.
"Migawd," he shrieks, "salted peanuts!"

W. P. A. S.
Dr. Sedgewick to English 9 class:
"When I look upon your Illiterate
and savage condition a great wave
of pity goes up from mc."
"Before going ahead and authorising the Students' Council to issue
bonds to build a stadium it would
be wise to establish deinitely that the
playing ield Is ln good shape.
"At present It isn't, and it would be
advisable to repair the field iself to
see that it is hi good condition and
then build tho stand. According to
present sponsors it would cost 12000
more to float the issue now than later.
That 12000 could be saved and advisability of building the grandstand
could be definitely established if the
field was repaired now and the grandstand project was re-discussed next
Whimster Rhetorical
"To abandon the Stadium as it is,
is to nullify the efforts and faith of
those students who succeeded in creating a playing-field from a morass,"
with these words Bill Whimster, President of the A. M. U. S. greeted an
over-curious reporter.
"{20,000 have been already sunk into the Stadium. The question is will
this money, the symbol of the sacrifices of the student body, be thrown
down the gutter.
"We have built a gymnasium for
those who are to follow. Therefore
those who are to follow should ln
turn bear willingly the burden of
building a decent stadium for later
generations. At all events the Stadium
is for the people and will return to
the people."
Gaul Hesitant
Bobby Gaul, former English rugby
captain and President of the Big Block
Club stated:
"In my opinion the playing field
should certainly be put in order before any action is taken on the building of permanent grandstand. Another matter to consider is whether
any customers will come out here for
the games. If only the students turn
out, then they will be left holding
the bag. A home field is certainly
needed for the teams, but, if the field
is repaired then the track, which is
equally important if the stadium Is
to be successful financially, should
also be put in order. Last year the
field and track were neglected. When
money is spent on the stadium, caretakers should be employed to keep It
in condition. However, the greatest
need is not stands or spectators, but
more playing fields to get more people in active participation in sports."

Good ol' Council,
They see 'n hear everything
And occasionally provido us
With a Litany.
Dear Hiram:
I know it's o long time since I
wrote to you but you needn't get
jealous because the reason is that a
freshette is always busy here and
the men here aren't so inviting as
they are at home. For instance: the
other day at a musical society rehearsal after some terrible discords,
a man who was standing by said
that after looking over the chorus he
had come to the conclusion that we
must have been chosen for our musical ability. Wasn't that just too cute.
Although there is only a foot of
snow, a fellow called Don Munro
tried to show off to us by coming
to college in courderoy pants and
coat, mocassins and snowshoes. Another dumbell came out here on skis,
while half of the campur wore high
boots. I wish our old Ford was here
because one of the girls in the Players Club called Eileen Simon got her
car "Betsy" stuck in the snow and
had a most thrilling time when a
whole lot of firemen came and dug
her out . . . now don't get jealous—
they don't mean anything to me —
and everybody laughed and laughed
and laughed when Betty Moscovitch
—you know—I've told you lots of
tunny things about her . . she fell
down in the snow and five boys ran
and picked her up . . . it s a shame
I'm so sure-footed . . . isn't it—or is
it? I phoned thc Aggie Dating bureau and they said sura we arrange
dates but when I called in person
they said they were all filled up . . .
and the only person available was
Mr. Stuart Gilmcur or somebody and
I would never go out with him on
account of he Is too young and would
probably have to go home at ten
o'clock. There are two people I
wouldn't mind going out with ....
one of them ia a poor poverty-stricken student that I'd like to treat to
an evening in the Spanish Grill. Hia
name is Clarence Idyll. He has been
going around for a week asking
everybody he meets for a dollar . . .
maybe he's not poor . . maybe it's
a racket. . . but (he's got a kind
face. The other person is really too
divine ... I was at a barktball game
on Friday and he played so marvellously that I wanted to congratulate
him afterwards so I rushed forward
at the end of the game but 254 other
girls beat me ... I still think his
last glorious smile was meant for me.
Doctor Sedgewick, a funny little fellow that teaches English ... I think
his first name is Garnet but we never
call him that ... at least not to his
face—anyway Hiram you'd die laughing . . . he's as funny as the Devil
—don't be '•nocked because everybody swears here . . . I'll bet he . . .
Garnet, not the devil—looked like
Jackie Cooper when he was young.
I was at the plays put on by the
Alumni Flayers club lasi night . . .1
was thrilled by "Love in an Ape
House"—I wish somebody would Introduce me lo Gordon Hilker who
played the leading role ... he certainly is a most realistic actor or
else he's been practicing a long time.
Love and kisses from your darling,
Fanny Hurtz.
P.S. I made a* mistake and mailed
my last letter in the Pub which I
thought was a postoffice and they
made a mistake and opened It and
when I found out my mistake and
called for the letter the nicest man
said that if I agreed to always leave
my letters for you there, he would
make sure they reached you	
wasn't that nice of him—now I must
run and take this to him.

Washington 4-3
After Overtime
Game Here Next Friday
In the first of a series of four inter-collegiate hockey
games, the University of B. C. team defeated the Washington
Huskies 4-3 in Seattle. The game was thrilling throughout and
was capped by Hager's sensational goal in the overtime period.
About 1000 people saw the game.
Both teams played bang-up hockey.^
scoring once in each of the three
periods, necessitating the usual 10
minute overtime. The Washington
team had a slight edge in condition
but they lacked the enthusiasm and
ability of the Canadian players.
The game opened slowly aa both
teams were a little dubious about the
ability of the opposing side. However, as the play progressed all shyness disappeared. Due to the somewhat sloppy refeering the game was
marred by rough play. No serious
infringements were called, although
the referees had plenty of opportunity to send players to the cooler.
Hager scored two of the Blue and
Oold goals, while Murray Little and
Lambert contributed one f.piece. The
Varsity team was composed of Andrews, Burnett, Lea, Truffel, Mor-
riss, Livingsone, and Hager.
The next game is to take place in
Vancouver next Friday.

The Thunderbird hoopmen rose, to great heights last night
when they definitely proved their superiority over their arch-
rivals, the Adanacs, by a crushing 36-24 win over the Royal
City boys. This win puts Varsity in undisputed possession of
the top slot in the league standing, two points ahead of Prov
ince and Adanacs, and four ahead of V.A.C.
The second half of last night's game was one of the most
exciting seen on basketball courts in many a year. The scoring
was free and the play was spiced with a near-fight when Bardsley and Matthison crashed together on a jump, and Rann took
a swing at the Varsity captain.
First String Stays On
Coach Barbaric of the Blue and
Gold elected to leave his first team
on throughout the game, and there
would have been no substitutions for
the Thunderbirds if Barbarle had not
taken Bardsley out of the game for
a short time after his clash with Matthison. Swan came on at forward
then and again for about three minutes later on for Willoughby. For the
remainder of the game Henderson,
Pringle, Wright, Willoughby and
Bardsley pulled the "Ironman" stunt,
and did a very good job of it.

First Half Slow
The first half was slow, with both
teams playing air-tight defensive
games.   The half-time score was 11-6
for the Adanacs. Varsity had a lot
of tough luck with their long shots,
which rimmed the hoop tune and
again, but never dropped in. The
Thunderbirds only scored one solitary
basket during the first half, the remainder of their points coming on
fouls. The one basket was a beauty,
scored by "Bugs" Bardsley about six
minutes after the start of the game.
The Adanacs gave Jimmie a riding
throughout the game. Fraser was
given the job of holding down the
Varsity flash, and he did it well during the first half. In the second stanza, however, Bardsley broke away and
ended the game with ten points to
share scoring honors with Willoughby.

and Henderson scored quick baskets,
followed by a long shot by Fraser of
Play continued fast and furious for
the rest of the half. The refereeing
was to put it politely a little off color. Neither of the officials checked
any rough play at all and during the
half Matheson and Bardsley clashed.
To avoid a further rucus coach Barbarle yanked Bardsley.
Pringle on defence for Varsity played a stellar game. He broke up the
Adanacs rushes time after time and
scored many a pretty basket The
second half was notable for the long
shots sunk by both sides. Willoughby
of Varsity being especially strong in
that regard.
Pringle sent Varsity definitely out
in front with a free throw and two
baskets, making the score 21-15. From

ing the last few minutes the Blue
and Gold squad did a little effective
stalling to cinch the tussle.

points. Bardsley and Willoughby led
the Varsity attack and got ten points
