Dane Gymnastic Display
Received With Enthusiasm
By Capacity Audience
Ease of Performance and Perfect Rhythm Noted in Both
Men and Women—Exercises, Acrobatics and Dancing
Feature Program
Staging one of the finest performances that have ever taken
place in Vancouver, Niels Bukh's pupils demonstrated their
agility at fundamental gymnastics before a capacity crowd in
the Varsity gymnasium Monday night.
Professor Boving outlined the accomplishments of Niels
Bukh and his artist students in his opening address and concluded with a few Words in the Danish language for the benefit
of the many Danish people present.
Tht program opened with a parade of all the participants
accompanied by their instructor around the gymnasium.   The
athlete heading tiie procession carried a large Danish flag.
A series of difficult exercises by thef
women  students,  followed by  still
more difficult ones performed by the
husky Danish men featured the first
part of the program.
As these were all performed without
any accompaniment of music, the perfect timing and the ease with which
the  drill  was executed,  show the
amount of practice that has been

work Including w<jrk on the mats,

The men athletes then returned to
the floor and a series ef folk dances
ln which both men and women took
part delighted the large audience.
After a Baal procession around the
gymnasium, the gymnasts .headed by
a sturdy Dene bearing a huge Danish
flag,   halted   while   the   Orchestra
played the Danish National Anthem
and God live the King,
the display In Vancouver was the
first one to be given on this continent.   The athletes are now on their
way across Canada and will perform
In Calgary, Edmonton, Reglna, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Montreal.

Inherent Stability
Of British People
Stressed by Divine
"World peace can net be obtained
by means of sentimentallsm," declared Rev. O.O. Fallis In an address
before the Vancouver Institute In the
Science Building, Monday night.
Mr. Fallis chose aa his subject "The
Drift of Europe" and dealt largely
with the League of Nations and its
work. He showed that peace aa a
reality will not come by toasting the
dove of peace, but only by systematic
work between the nations to Iron
out their difficulties. "The League
has become a technical institution
rather than a sentimental one," he
After dealing with his impressions
of the condition of European countries
and their Internal problems, Mr.
Fallis turned to the situation in Great
Britain. He expressed the greatest
confidence in the ability of the British people to assert themselves in the
present economic situation. "Unfortunately, the flower of the younger
generation were killed during the
war, and the tremendous burden of
the nation's problems rests on the
heads of the old. However, the British people have never lacked in genius and character, and I have no
doubt that they will surmount their
present difficulties as they have surmounted many before," concluded
Mr. Fallis.
Christian Union
Hears Address
By Londoner
On Wednesday last many V. C. U.
members and friends had the pleasure
of listening to Mr. Barker of London, England. The speaker took as
the subject of his interesting address,
"Tlie Dogmatism of God."
"If a person," he said, "were perfect in mind and absolute in knowledge he must necessarily talk in a
dogmatic way. God is all of this so
we may reasonably expect Him to be
dogmatic. The Bible doesn't altogether agree with scientific knowledge to-day and it is impossible that
it should. The science of today is
obsolete tomorrow, while ths word of
God stands forever.
"The light of God," said the speiker,
"is one which not only exposes us for

These were some of the questions
which arose from the discussion ef
babel Beecoby's pap%r en Robert
Frost, siven at tiie third meeting ef
the Letters Club, at Ike home of
Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Reid on Tuesday
night   '
"American poets are to-day both
realists and romanticists. They aire
realists In that they sing of apple-
picking, hay-cutting, flower-gathering and other commonplace activities
rather than of classical legends. They
are romantlaists In that their creative desire turns everyday routine

a sort of aura of romance ever hla
deft descriptions of daily happenings,
especially in his native Naw ing-
land, which he pictures with a tang
and zest which show his love for the
place. "The voice of New England
is the voice of reason and of intellect."
The most striking point about Mr.
Frost's life is his dislike for fixed
routine of any sort. He merely tolerated school, and although he was
a zealous student at Harvard, he
never took his degree there. He
wandered over the world, teaching
and writing, finally finding a congenial berth at the University of
Michigan, where he fills the unique
position of "poet-in-resldence."
"He is, Indeed, a classicist," the
paper continued. "That is to say, he
has a love of distinction and that Is
the first sign of the classicist, or
what Is today, the humanist. He
draws clear cut pictures in a somewhat smudgy world."
Besides being clear cut, Mr. Frost
is concise. "He does not overburden
his reader with any philosophy of
life. He hardly lets us know that he
has one. He does not offend us with
sentimentality. Often he lets his
character do all the speaking. When
Frost does step Into his poems he
speaks soberly—another characteristic of a New Englander. He conscientiously reports a serious life-
there is no need for invention to add
jollity. The simplest incident Is repeated  nakedly."
Vet Mr. Frost Is by no means dry,
and an inability to write "fine passages and haunting lines" does not
mark his work. He has the power
to make the commonplace appear
Frost's work progressed in orderly
fashion. "A Boy's Will" Is "unified
by the spirit of youth groping towards expression. The feeling-tone
or keynote for all of Frost's production is struck."
In "North of Boston" Frost found
"his own full utterance and himself," casting aside all rhetorical devices and "literary mechanics." The
"sharp tang of life" Is iii every line
of this dramatic poetry. This volume
was followed by "Mountain Interval" and "New Hampshire," which
won the Pulitzer Prize in 1624.

Dorothy Colledge, a popular coed, gilded smoothly Into the crowded Oeorglan Room of the Hudson's
Bay Company and started the Fashion Show sponsored by the W. U. S.
Dorothy led soma alst other _rla In

scarf and mits, the slightly bagged,
trousers tucked bv at the bottom, the
outfits looked both colorful as well
as useful. Orange and black, green,
red and brown were among the col-1
ore shown for different styles of the
latest thing for snow and skiing. The
jackets were worn both, Inside and
out of the trousers.
Following these, many sports costumes were shown including golfing
outfits and the correct street wear.
The former were smartly portrayed
by Alice Morrow who entered wearing a blue suede jacket of the type
familiar to the campus; a grey tweed
suit and a hat with a small straight
brim completed the ensemble. Dorothy Thomson modelled a grey tweed
trimmed with black caracule. The
dark forest green that was shown so
much during the course of the display was seen first in a tailored suit
worn by Kay Blngay. Brown and
fawns were seen ln quick succession.
Frances Darling appeared wearing
n blege tweed suit having a peculiar
treatment of the skirt which was circular and made full by narrow box
pleatlngs. Many suits less tailored
featured three-quarter length coats
and fur trimmings. This Is something new and returns us to the

Office of the Students' Council
Vancouver, B. C.
October 29, 1931
To the Members of the Alma
Mater Sodety,
I have been asked by your
governing executive to make
one more appeal to th* students
of this University on behalf of
the Stadium Fund.
As wo all know the completion of the University Stadium,
for which so much sacrifice was
made last year, new depends
solely on the sincerity of those
members of the Student Body
who were present at the Alma
Mater Society meeting of last
spring when the suggestion that
the caution money be turned
over to tiie fund was unanimously accepted. Those students who were absent are also
under a moral obligation to
abide by the vote of the meeting, although perhaps not to
such an extent aa those actually present
It was, of course, a distinct
disappointment to Students'
Council to oaKOvef that, saving
to a legal technicality, a further
task of securing the signatures
of those present was necessary.
The members of Council wish
to make an urgent plea to all
students of this University to
stand by their word of last
year, and, in spite of financial
stress, of personal Inconvenience, and perhaps of real sacrifice, to fulfill honourably
their pledge of caution money
to the Stadium Fund.
It is perhaps the strongest
moral appeal that has ever been
addressed to the students of
this University and the measure of response which it receives will show whether the
spirit of the U.B.C. Campus is
really worthwhile and "glorious,"—as we boast it Is—or
only, after all, ordinary and
mediocre. On the response to
this challenge depends also the
tones In which future generations of students will speak of
the "Stadium Drive of 1930-
32." Are they to point to it
with pride and gratitude, or are
they to say nothing, remembering the failure of the classes
concerned to measure up to
their own promises. Which is it
to be?
It Is a point of honour which
each student himself must decide, and which no one can
face for him. We only hope
that every student will have
the courage to face the issue
squarely, to decide it sincerely,
and then act accordingly.
Yours sincerely,
Cecilia E. Long,
Secretary, Students' Council
Shaky seniors lost their sophistication for one brief hour, when they
went to meet their fate in Arts 100
Tuesday noon where their class draw
took place.
Professor Angus, honorary president, drew the names of the women
while Don Morgan, president, called
out the names of the men.
For once the upper-class men were
shy, for they found it very hard to
stand and acknowledge their draws.
Sighs of disappointment or laughs
of happiness were to be heard
throughout the room as each knell
waa sounded.
Towards the end, Juniors and
Sophomores shared the anticipation
of tne Seniors, and without baying
any concern about tne situation they
added much hilarity to the event.
When tha last man's name was
drawn, a few heretofore shy men added their names to the list and drew
their partners. light lucky (If you
may call them ao) senior co-eds
were left with the privilege of inviting their own escorts.
The Seniors are even going to become tough, for the participants are
to dress as much %s possible like
gangsters. The dance Is going to be
held on November 2 in the Peter
Pan Ballroom.

Congregation was a short but impressive ceremony, to which the
meny-tufed robes of the Faculty lent
decided colour. Commencing with the
singing of "O Canada,' it passed without further ceremony straight to the
graduation. President KUnk requested
the Bachelors of Arts, Bachelors of
Commerce, and Masters of Arts elect
to stand, and delivered a short Latin
address. Dean Buchanan then read
the names of the candidates In alphabetical order. The graduates advanced
In turn to . Chancellor McKechnie's
table, knelt, and received their caps
with the time honoured "Admltto Te."
President Klink put on their hoods,
and passing oh to the Registrar they
received their scrolls. The ceremony
was repeated for the graduates in Applied Science, and the English form
of the Latin Injunction was given.
Dean Buchanan read the list of graduates unable to attend Congregation.
The Registrar then announced the list
of scholarships awarded since May 7,
and the ceremony closed with "God
Save the King."

education the more assured he can be of great-   *&*■ longer they earn, while the latter increased
er earning capacity," stated Dr, Clark in an
address "Does a University Education Pay,"
to the Chemistry Society in Sc. 300, Wednesday afternoon. Pres. Allan Cameron was in
the chair and introduced the speaker
"A few years ago," Dr. Clark continued,
"young men were advised to stay away from
higher education if they would be a success
in business. Not so to-day. What the business
world is looking for at the present, is brains,
character, ability, and education, and those
with first class honors, in almost every case
fulfill expectations and rank high in past-
college years. In one University nine out of
twelve of the highest graduating students were
found in "Who's Who" in later years."
Results show that usually high mark men
earn more than low mark men.   The former
their wages more slowly.
"This does not mean that every mediocre
student will be merely second-rate in business,
nor does it mean that high-mark men can rest
on their laurels, and be assured of financial
success," advised the speaker. "There have
been many striking exceptions to the rule."
"Statistics show that students who take
part enthusiastically in college affairs and who
become leaders in debating, public speaking
or in editorial work, etc., almost always foreshadow future success as surely as do high-
mark scholars."
To the question "Does it pay the State to
finance educational institutions?" Dr. Clark
concluded by declaring that almost all public
concerns are manned by University graduates.
After a few words of gratitude from the
president to the speaker the meeting was adjourned.
Victoria invasion devotees will
have to go unsatisfied for another
year by the decrees of Council at
their regular Monday meeting.
The executive based its decision on
the fact that the teams of Victoria
College do not offer sufficient competition to Varsity's envoys, that
very few students will have tiie necessary emolument to make the New
Year trip, that those who do make
the excursion just make It an excuse
for conduct a little freer than they
dare use in Vancouver when under
the auspices of the University, and
that 'tiie expense entailed for tiie
A.M.S. In the matter of sending over
Athletic teams would necessitate
considerable cutting of budgets already pared to a mere shadow of
their former selves.
;-■''■■    JPIANNED
Reg. Price, Business Manager of
th. Ubyssey, was summoned before
tiie student executive to eastern a
gargantuan advertising campaign.
This big drive Is to take the form of
two mammoth issues of th. Ubyssey
accompanied by two advertising pep
meetings. These two Issues of the
paper will appear on the same dates
as the Pep Meetings, namely November 10 and 13.
It is hoped to sell considerable advertising space, and to persuade advertisers to follow up with contracts
for the remainder of the year. The
advertisers who will have displays
in these issues have consented to
put on skits at the two meetings
mentioned to arouse students to the
necessity of patronising those who
advertise ln the Ubyssey and of telling the advertiser that the reason
they are spending their hard earned
cash in his store is that he advertises in the Ubyssey.
It was considered necessary to initiate tins drive to improve the status of the Publications Boards finances which have been copying the
Tower of Pisa In their inclination.
"I have every reason to believe that
this drive will materially increase
the advertising space taken In subsequent issues of the paper," stated
Price when presenting his case.
It was originally Intended to stage
all the skits put on by the downtown firms in a theatre night, but
owing to the proximity of Homecoming, the Arts Ball and other
events during this week, the Council
deemed It advisable to hold the two
Pep Meetings instead.
Owing to the few numbers of students who have availed themselves of
the opportunity of legally signing
over their caution money to the
bankrupt Stadium Fund, the secretary was instructed to write a letter
to the students for publication in
the Ubyssey. This letter will be
found  elsewhere  in  the  paper.
It will be remembered that Council lent the Stadium Fund one thousand dollars, and it was felt that this
debt should be cleared up as soon
as possible. It war felt that the students had a strong moral, if not an

"Small ln stature but great in soul"
—in these words Mr. Murray Brooks
summed up the character of Mahatma
Ohandi in his lecture Tuesday noon
in Aggie 100.
In the course of his lecture Mr.
Brooks outlined the important? IJgft
Ohandi has played in the struggling
India towards self-government. Until
1919, Ohandi was a loyal supporter Of
the British government.#He had hoped
that at the close of the great war
India would be granted a measure of
self-government in recognition of her
services in the British army. But
when still harsher measures were
taken against the Indians, Ohandi waa
forced to turn against the government.
In 1919 he organized the non-cooperative movement. He was arrested and
sent to prison for six years. In 1023
he was released, and until 1930 devoted himself to social reform, particularity for the "untouchables." He
returned to politics when he saw that
India was not getting a fair deal. In

Following a precedent established last year,
Students' Council has decreed that there is to
be no official Victoria invasion this year. Economy w*s given as one reason for this decision and in view of the frantic efforts which the
executive of the Alma Mater Society is making
to raise additional funds for tha Stadium perhaps therVia sorne excuse for its action on that
ground. Nevertheless, it is difficult to believe
that cost of tha trip was the Sole cause for
abolishing it. Last year the reason given was
that students taking part in the Invasion ware
*-§rone to behave publicly in a manner detrimental to the University and it is only natural
to suppose that a similar thought had much to
do with prompting the recent ultimatum.
i If Students' Council believes that the cancelling of official sanction of tha Invasion is
going to stop students travelling to Victoria
lor S good time during the Christmas holidays
it only goes to show that tha members of that
body richly deserve that criticism which has
been levelled at previous Councils, namely that
Whtn a student, is elected to the governing
executive he or she immediately loses contact
with student affairs. Last Christmas, although
permission to hold an Invasion had been denied, at least five athletic teams and a very
considerable crowd of supporters paid a visit
to tha island city., Why 1931 should ba any
exception to what will happen in other years
is hard to see. Again, if the student administrators think that members of tha student body
who make an unofficial trip are likely to behave themselves any better than when they
are legitimately representing their Alma Mater
they art surely a trifle over-optimistic. Finally, if Council believes that the general public
will look with less disapproval on the University because a party of misbehaving students
is not an official delegation from the institution, it is displaying a quality which might be
described in terms far less complimentary than
either lack of contact With student affairs or
undue optimism
The practice of making an annual visit to
Victoria has much to commend it. It acts as
a great stimulus to athletics both here and at
Victoria College whence comes much of the
material for Varsity's first string teams. It is
one of the very few social events of the year in
Which a student may partake without the feeling that he is taking time from bis work which
he cannot afford to give. It is an excellent
method of promoting closer association with
the affiliated institution in Viqtoria. Last, but
by no means least, it has become an old
established tradition for the Alma W&teT Society to pay an official visit to the capital city
once a year. Almost from the inception of the
Tlniversity this custom has been observed and
enjoyed. Is the student of today less capable
of behaving himself than his forerunners? If
not, why advertise to the world in general
and to graduates in particular that such is the

those who saw the finished exhibition given in
the gym last Monday night will realise that
there can be no question of .undeserving
emphasis, when we say that this display
was unique in the history of the University. Any student now registered here will
be fortunate indeed if he remains to witness
such another event. The point, however, which
is of particular interest to students of the University is that the performance in the Varsity
gym was the only one given in Vancouver and
the first on the continent. That is, U.B.C.
was the scene of an attraction which was not
only the first of its kind ever held in the city
but also was an exhibition novel and orginal
in the sphere of gymnastics. Too much credit*
cannot be given to Students' Council, or those
members of that executive who were responsible for the arrangements of the affair, for
securing for the University an attraction oi
this type and for the capable manner in which
the program was handled.

to the latest tendency. Student newspapers across the
country continue vigorous in tone. Debating, however,
has been generally on the decline. Our new Parliamentary Forum sounds promising, but what do you think
I am told is the subject for the first meeting? The

and simple decoration is a pleasant surprise.
The New. A friend and I made our first pilgrim-
Art Gallery age to this institution on Saturday. The
place was crowded, and there were even
a number of university students dropping in. throughout
the afternoon.
The Founders' Collection aims at being a history of
British and Canadian painting, and many fine works have
been secured.
The first oil is attributed (0 Sir Joshua Reynolds—
"Judith with the Head of Holof ernes." Judith was a
Jewish heroine whose history is given in the apocryphal
book which bears her name. She went to the .tent of
Holofernes, an Assyrian general who was besieging
Bethulia, the city in which she lived. Gaining admission
to his tent by charming him with her beauty, she cut
off his head with his own sword while he slept. In the
painting her expression is Indescribable—each must sense
its significance for himself.
Dobson's "A Princess of Orange" is doubtless a fine
portrait. So is Sir Hubert Herkomer's "The Covenanter,"
a finished study before which many paid homage, But
the first picture that seems really art to me is "On the
Beach" by E. A. Hornel, a man who has no letters after
his name.
"The Hills of Lome" (Sir David Y. Cameron) is most
striking In Its subdued clarity. As my friend remarked,
there is something powerfully subjective about it that
arouses a peculiar mood in the beholder.
Dame Laura Knight has made a memorably expressive study in "The Maiden," and there is symbolic beauty
in "The Stork" (Charles Sims).
James Batsman's "Cows In the Rlckyard" has aroused
much controversy. Not knowing much about painting,
I can only record that I felt this canvas to be art of a
high order. The color scheme antagonises many, but as
Mr. Charles H. Scott recently pointed out in The Sunday
Province, it is a convention, just, as the representation of
black and .white is a convention. If this is ac<
ceptea, tne picture will be found to "yield not only much
interest in subject matter but In all these other elements
—rhythm, pattern, silhouette and tone."
William Strang's "The Prodigal Son" is one of the best
oils }n the gallery. The movement of the unobtrusive
background ia toward a meeting in the middle, in sym-
r&>_ &&lism^&&ass
ire executed with feeling and skill.
Harold Knight's "Been in a Mirror" enthuses some, but
not this scribe, though I realise it is oi great technical
excellence. Anna K. Zlnkelsen's "Girl's Head, 19*1" is
similar to some magasln. illustrations by younger artiste-ana I do not say that disparagingly. The only
adjective that occurs to me is "classical," because the
Suiting is clear, finished and calm, yet not photograph-
Duncan Grant has created a work of art In "Sunflowers and Dahlias."
Oh, yes—and there was also a Rembrandt, loaned by
a prominent Toronto firm—a form of highbrow advertising. It seems. The masterpiece was enshrined in dark
velvet draplngs, and in front of the roped-off area chairs
wore placed for the devotees. My friend and I, in heretical mood, sat down before the holy of holies and remarked that the heavy but simple frame of dark wood
was far more pleasing than the many ornate gilded
ones to be found elsewhere In the gallery.
"You'd almost think she waa alive" is the substance
of most people's comments on Madame Sylvius. Whenever I hear that, I decide that the work in question is
probably not .great art from my point of view—and such
was my conclusion on viewing the Rembrandt.
It is a wonderful likeness—the hands, the expression,
the lighting are exquisite. I saw an old lady in an
artificial position, sitting for her portrait, and looking
rather soft-conscious. I marvelled at the skill of the
painter—indeed, that is one's main reaction, but I do not
think It is th. main reaction to great art.
Prominent among the water colors are two by. Charles
John Colllngs, remarkable for their unusual lines and
coloring—"Shuswap Lake, B.C.," and "Mountain Study,
near Lytton, B.C." '
"Margaret Roper's House, WeU Hall, Kent" (E. W.
Haslehurst) appealed to me very much. An Early English "Landscape," probably of small monetary value
and little general interest because the artist is unknown,
seemed to me one of the best of the water colors both ln
the impression it gives and, on closer examination, in
technique. The trees are done rather in the Japanese
Jacob Kramer's "Sleeping Woman" (chalk) is outstanding in the Black and White room. A few simple
lines give the impression, and if you wonder what kind
of shoes she wears you won't find out, because such
irrelevancles are not depicted.
Graham Sutherland's "Village" and Augustus E. John's
"Head of a Girl" (red chalk) are other excellent studies.
Jacob Epstein's bronze bust, "La Bohemienne," Is an
important acquisition and a fine work of art. Charles
Marega's bust of the late T. W. Frlpp, Vancouver artist,
is excellent, and two other bronzes complete the collection of sculpture.
A splendid group of reproductions is available for appreciation and study.
We left the gallery feeling that it had been a very
profitable afternoon, and that Vancouver has an art
collection of which she may be very proud,
It appears that a period of conservative sentiment has
set in throughout the universities of this continent. Back
in January, 1030, the California Daily Bruin was Indicating the trend in an editorial "Swan
From One Ex- Song" of "baggy trousers, 22-inch
treme to Another bottoms, loud socks and sweaters,
all the tricky outfit of Harold Teen
and his contemporaries." "The most authentic and natural conservatism has enshrouded the heretofore leaders
ot eccentric fashions." Plainness of pattern and neutral
tones were being demanded and a remnant of colleg-
latlsm existed only in the prep schools.
An article in The New Republic of May 13, 1931, entitled "Dirge for College Liberalism," by William Harlan
Hale, throws light on the movement in other spheres.
Hale was about to graduate from Yale University. His
articles in The Harkness Hoot, which he founded with
Seur.an Rodman, have helped to make It, during the
past year, the liveliest ot college magazines, say the editors of The New Republic. I quote vie article in part:
"Carried on the wave ot post-war revolt In thought
and morals, the students of the early twenties were the
last word in radicalism and smart progressiveness. Today a complete revolt has set in, and to be an Eastern
college man is to be a collared conservative." "The utter
lack of any influential political thought in the universities testifies to an amazing unconcern with all condition of the present and problems of the future . . . Debating societies in large eastern colleges have practically ceased to exist. Political and social agitation is
frowned upon by undergraduate leaders, and consequently relegated to the obscurity of almost clandestine
off-campus coteries."
The death of liberalism expresses itself in other ways,
he goes on to show. "Everyone remembers; perhaps with
a certain sense of pain, the baggy trousers, the collegiate semi-bohemlanism, the tumble-down Fords, the gln-
and-necklng party tradition of several years ago. That
order is now renounced in all but certain tidewater and
Midwestern institutions . . . The Yale or Princeton student who wishes to make a mark dresses like a young
banker on the Exchange—smartly, expensively, unostentatiously. He jumps into black suits and stiff collars on
the slightest provocation ... In his publications, through
which he expresses himself most directly, the Eastern
undergraduate reaches the summit of his acquiescence.
The only large college paper that has taken a progressive stand in recent years is The Harvard Crimson . . .
The Yale News, since its liberal action against compulsory chapel six years ago, has sunk into almost total
agreement with the authorities on every major point.
Nor has any alert editorial voice been heard in The
Daily Princetonian. Especially in the latter two there
has been a consistent overemphasis on athletic news
and a playing down of controversial topics."
I don't think that in Canada we experienced the unconventional reaction in its extreme form, and it is to
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I thought it necessary that someone reply to the words of wisdom of
our prophet, Mr. Realist. I am sure
that no professor of U. B. C. has
described the League of Nations as
a "saviour of humanity" as Mr.
Realist asserts, but I am sure that
they consider "the mere fact that
fifty-four nations have associated
themselves in the endeavor to preserve the world's peace and to substitute goodwill and co-operation for
hatred and conflict is the most remarkable idealistic advance in international relations that history has
recorded." The league, after all, is
still in its infancy as political institutions go but nevertheless, if Mr.
Realist would take the trouble to
find out what the league has already
accomplished, I think he might learn
a few facts he did not know before.
And he might also consider the fact
that "Public Opinion is the life-
blood of the League of Nations" and
thus, whatever the League might
have accomplished in the past has
been done despite the sneers and
scoffs of people like Mr. Realist,
ready to burst out with a triumphant "I told you so" upon the slightest excuse. Perhaps Mr. Realist has
some plan of his own to substitute
for the League of Nations; if he has
not he might at least keep silence
and give the League a fair chance.
In conclusion, I wish to point but
that if the League of Nations did
not exist to-day, China and Japan
would not now be discussing their
problems in Geneva, but would be
doing what Germany and tho Allies
did In 1914, when an archduke was
murdered and no organization existed to settle the dispute.
Yours truly
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I hot* that a person modestly styling him (or her) self "Hidebound"
has come, to the aid of mode-ridden
womanhood and has attacked men's
garments as ridiculous.
He picks' out aa examples the
waistcoat (which he chooses to call
tiie "vest") and the collar and tie.
It seems hardly necessary to refer
to the warmth-giving properties of
the former. Let him try going about
without one. While the collar Is not
necessary for protection, it is small,
not uncomfortable except to Science-
men and Hottentots, and, with the
tie, constitutes probably the sole
concession to decoration In the whole
sartorial equipment of the male. It
could be omitted, but the chief objection to such a ronunolatlon would
come, I feel safe ln saying, from the
Opposite sex—on the grounds of appearance, of course.
In reply to the last accusation In
"Hldebound's" letter that the male
is the victim of over-developed herd
instinct, let me suggest that this is
preferable to the boundless vanity
of the average woman, whose day
Is spoilt if she sees anyone else

little individuality, who the devil can?
So much for those students who are
merely indifferent. There is another
class which is actually worse. On a
copy of the petition posted on one of
our notice boards there appeared
among the first signatures the names
"Mahatma Zilch" and "Z. Z. Ghandl"
(both in the same handwriting). Ihe
person who inscribed these names is
apparently a Muck reader with a perverted sense of humor. At any rate
he Is obviously a moron and as such
should not be registered at an Institution of higher learning.
Yours truly,

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I notice that my little missive concerning that Holy of Holies the
League of Nations, has aroused the
opposition of the worthy wielder of
Pipe and Pen. This gentlemen bases
his reply' on the calling of names,
truly a most scholarly means of argument.
He states that in some school
books the League makes Its appeal
to childish minds as "The Hope of
the World," which, of course, merely
strengthened my charge' of sentimentality.
The meaning of his rhetorical
question, "Who can doubt that, given
the. same situation twenty years ago,
Japan and China would now be at
each other's throats" is rather beyond my. comprehension. Does he
mean that It, would take twenty
years to finish the scrap?
The League has come through a
number of minor crises, admittedly,
but in practically every instance,
each aide has voluntarily agreed to
abltrate, using the League as the
means. Of course the coercion of
fifth-rate nations may be practicable
but it ia yet to be shown whether
or not the nations comprising the
League are willing Or able to force
a first-class power to arbitrate.
In tiie lsst analysis; thi League
must bring strong pressure to bear
On the defiant nation, either through
an economic blockade or by armed
force. In my opinion, tiie present
world economic situation is so bad
that very lew nations would jeopor-
dite their Interests still further by
a voluntary curtailment ef trade,
commerce and credit, by using the
double-edged weapon of economic
blockade. On the other hand, armed
Intervention would either be by one
or two nations as catspaws of the
League, or by contributions by every
nation. In this case, the League cannot be said to prevent war, but, in
fact, makes every war a world war.
Taking the present crisis, let us
suppose Japan continues to defy and
repudiate tiie League. How much
would Canada suffer by an economic blockade of the Orient? If
armed intervention were necessary,
Is Canada prepared or willing, to
raise an armed force to help fight
Japan? We have only to apply these
questions to each country In turn,
In order to, decide whether or not
a strong power like Japan can call
the League's bluff?
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On behalf of the executive and
members of the Men's Gym Club I
wish to thank you for your co-operation in giving publicity to the Danish
Gymnasts troupe. Our ticket count
shows that there were fourteen hundred present at the event.
We also appreciate your editorial of
Tuesday and its boost to Gymnasium
work. We "would like to see a cooperative attempt made towards raising
the status and membership of the
Gym. Club until they have obtained
the prestige similar clubs hold on
other campuses"—ln the words of
Tuesday's "Ubyssey."
Gymnasium work is newly organized In this university and we hope
some day to have a good portion of
the student body participating in this
system of body development. Other
Canadian Universities have compulsory gym workouts for all able-bodied
students; notably Queen's University.
Why should w* not have likewise?
Beginning next Tuesday we are
having two turnouts a week, Tuesday,
8:30-10:30 p.m., and Thursday, 8:00-
10:00 p.m. If there are any students
free on either of these nights we
would like very much to see them
come and try our workouts. We are
organizing separate classes for the
two nights. We place students under
no obligation for coming out one
night; but if they join, the fees are
the reasonable sum of $2:00 with
which we pay our instructor.
Again thanking you for your cooperation,
Yours sincerely,
Arthur Dobson,
President of Men's Gym Club

Dear Sir:
I am surprised and disgusted at the
attitude many students are adopting
towards the Disarmament Petition
now going around the University.
Although most students are decidedly
in favour of International Disarmament, they contend that disarmament
is a forlorn cause, far ahead of the
times, and for this reason do not give
it their support. This is the spirit
which causes people to stay out of
a race when they are not sure of an
easy victory. A very rotten spirit. If

Soon 50,000 Indians followed and the

When the report of the Simon Committee proved useless, the Round

what we are but It also reveals Himself that we might see in a light
which does not dazzle." He also went
on to show that one's faith is based
on two things. First, the information
that our Lord died for us and that Hi
will save. Secondly, in the fact that
if we take the step He will see us
through. It is known that millions
have dared to walk with Christ and
have found that "trusting in Him"
works every time. With such knowledge can our Faith be Illogical or unreasonable? It is certainly not difficult.
"But to have faith," the speaker
pointed out, "there must be a new
life." A new start in life, as we commonly say, is not enough. There must
be the birth of a new life in the individual and only Jesus Christ can give
that. All interested are invited to
hear a paper which is to be given by
one of the members on Friday, Oct.

but the reader of the paper was impressed by the book as being the

Of a poem Robert Frost has this

"Although It had been refused by
•The Literary Guild' and by 'The
Book of the Month Club' as too
beautiful to Bell, almost universal
appreciation marked its career as a
best-seller," declared Mary Fallis of
Thornton Wilder's The Bridge of
San Luis Rey.'
This novel won the Pulitzer Prize
for 1927. "Yet this book was not
marked by the sensationalism that
stamps so many of the best sellers

touch modern American lffe, revelations of which are so popular. Here

Mr. Wilder became a teacher in
a boy's school at Lawrenceville, N.
J., keeping up his determination to
write for pleasure, not tor profit.
In 1925 he received his A. M. from
Princeton, and published 'The Cabala,' a book that grew out of experiences in Italy. A critical success, it did not sell well.
Then a play, "The Trumpet Shall
Sound,' was produced, but attracted
little attention. The author's international reputation came with 'Tlie
Bridge of San Luis Rey' in 1927.
"In the last four years he has taken no advantage of his popularity.
Only two slim volumes have been
published, one, 'The Angel that
Troubled the Waters,' a book of
three minute plays, appeared ln 1928.
He then went to Europe to work on
"The Woman of Andros,' which he
completed In 1930. He now holds a
lecture post at the University of
Chicago, where he lectures six
months of the year for the freedom
he holds so dear."
"There are passages of sheer poetry,
in scenes, In characters and In sentences, that are unusual In n modern
American novelist." He has infused
a religious tone into much of his
work, aiming to restore a religious
spirit, and for this he has bem
chiefly  criticised.
"The Bridge of San Luis Rey"
takes the reader back to 17th century Peru on a strange quest. The

Skits for Theatre night must be
ready for elimination by the 9th of
November. Class and Club executives
are urged to get their Homecoming
contributions lined up and under way.
They are requested to get in touch
with Clare Donaldson as soon as possible.
Owing to the overlengthy program
last year the H. C. committee deemed
it advisable either to cut down the
time allowance per skit or to reduce
the number of skits. So the program
will be arranged on a competitive
basis. Judges will classify the merits
of each skit at a dress rehearsal Monday the 9th in the Auditorium and
the best acts will be chosen.
Wednesday night was the occasion
of a much heated argument and forensic discussion at the Law Club.
The meeting was in the form of a
Mock Court with budding lawyers
suing for $700 in a civil case. Under
Mr. Collins as judge, Mr. Robert Pur-
ves appeared as senior counsel for
the plaintiff, and Mr. George Hall
as junior counsel, while Mr. Alex
Fisher appeared for the defendant.
The case concerned a shipment of
grain from Winnipeg to Vancouver.
The well-known Mr, A. shipped 1400
bushels of No. 2 Northern Wheat to
Mr. B., who refused to accept the
shipment because (a) he claimed that,
as he had revoked the contract he was
not bound to accept the grain; (b) because the grain had become damaged
in transit clue to an unusually severe
storm and had not even arrived at
the time stated in the contract. Mr.
A. thereupon sued Mr. B. for the
value of shipment, and, owing to
the able efforts of his counsel, was
able to win the case.
By special arrangement with Mr.
H. A. Stone and other Founders of the
Vancouver Art Gallery, members of
the University Art Club will be privileged to attend a private view of tho
Art Gallery on Monday j evening next
at 8:30.
Monday is the weekly holiday of the
Gallery, but arrangements have been
made to have the building opened for
the benefit of members of the club.
x Mr. C. A. Scott, Director of the Vancouver School of Applied and Decorative Arts, who with Mr. H. A. Stone
selected the pictures included In the
Gallery's collection, has kindly consented to act .s guide to the party,
giving information and comment as
to the artists and the schools of painting they represent.
The special private view is open to
members of the Club only. Admission
will be by ticket which can be obtained from Miss Grace Adams, President, or from Mr. Gordon Morris,
There is no fee for joining the Club.
Privileges of membership are open to
students of the University on enrollment with the Secretary.
A meeting is being held today in
Room 204 to complete the election of
officers and to hear reports concerning the program for the season,
It is expected that meetings will be
held twice a month; one at the Art
Gallery, the second at the home of
members or friends of the Club.

equally effective model although of
a different type, her extreme blond-

Dignity and a certain grace were
the particular attributes of Dorothy
Thompson who appeared In a series
of dresses and coats for elder women. One particularly beautiful gown
was of black velvet and chiffon, an
effective white feather set off a simple black hat with a rather wide
plain brim, the entire outfit being
perfect in every respect. It was

the front. No belt relieved this remarkable frock.
Tea was served during a short intermission. By this time the spectators were quite ready for It as the
steady progression of so many gowns
proved quite fatiguing. The evening
gowns In all their beauty and depth
of color were shown by the models
who could be seen all about the
room, moving gracefully to the music and pirouetting on the platforms
that were placed in the aisles about
the room.
Jean Borgardis appeared in a rustling watered silk creation of rose,
featuring the square neckline both
back and front and a bustle effect
at the back made of the full gathering of the material. Alice Morrow,
who was to be noted for her grace
and majesty of movement appeared
in a black velvet featuring a beaded
girdle in red and white, the square
neck being bordered by a band of
the white beading. The sleeves
hung gracefully in folds and were
slashed from the elbow. Black velvet featured the major part of the
evening gowns. Red was shown frequently. The evening wraps wero

Co-operation is the key-note of
Ubyssey staff work. Mistakes can
be avoided If each reporter does not
only what Is required of him, but
whatever there Is to be done, to
the best of his ability, and takes advice cheerfully. A really wideawake reporter will come across
many events that have news value
and Will write these up, if even
though he has not been definitely
told to do so.
Each reporter must consult the
Doomsday Book .very day and check
his name as he receives his assignment. If he cannot cover his assignment he should let the News Manager know so that the latter can get
someone else to do the work.
1. Write the most Interesting thing
first. Tell the main facta of the
story in the first paragraph. If you
cannot engage the readers' attention
at the opening of the story, you
cannot hope to do so further on.
2. Let accuracy be your watchword. Don't accept rumours for
facta or supply details from your
own imagination. Get all sides ot
the question. Mistakes on your part
:an have far reaching consequences
if your story is printed. The Ubyssey makes allowance for mistakes,
realizing that they will occur, but
expect, it. staff to profit from mis-
takes—not repeat them. Chronic
carelessness will result in dismissal.
3. Promptness In turning In reports
is of equal importance with accuracy, Something that everyone knows
is not news, but' history, RememUr
that a larg. part of the student body
relies oh the Ubyssey for their Information about what is taking
place on the campus.
4. In covering a news story always
keep in mind these six questions:
Who? WheA? When? Where? Wltyi
and How? By remembering this simple rule you will always be sure to
jHqge    eeg^p. * eses^sssjaaegajsaaf   sjoowesp   e#e   ■•ee^a' * «^sen^e)§
and put them in th. proper order.
5. Understand thoroughly what you
are going to write before you start.
6. Tie paragraphs following the
lead are a repetition of the main
facts, in detail and in logical news
order—that is, la order of Importance.
7. Be crisp; use simple sentences,
short paragraphs, graphic words.
Check up to see If each sentence
says something. Of two words (hat
mean the same It is better to use

carefully. Note the mistakes correct

Waiting For Chips That Never
Come In.
The Library staff has been troubled of late by students taking books
off the temporary reference shelve,
and failing to return them.
The reference shelf, It is pointed
out, is a system devised so that all
students will have an opportunity
of having a book for a short period
of time, whereas if the book were on
file, only a limited number of persons would be able to have the use
of It. Library officials state that if
this continues these books will have
to be taken off the reference shelf
and placed on file causing great Inconvenience to a number of students. The reference shelf system depends on the Honour System, that
Is, the student Is put on his honour
to return a book after using it. Officials are anxious that this policy
be continued.

the society late last year.
The grand budget for the year, in"
corporatlng the requests Of the various subsidiary organisations on tiie
campus, and the estimated recelpta
from all functions sponsored by the
University received Its final reading.
Many budgets, ln fact the majority
of them, received savage blows from
Council's paring knife. All items
covering shoes and incidentals were
mercilessly deleted. Items covering
necessary expenditures were slashed
to tiie irreducible minimum in an
effort to establish a balance between
receipt, and expenditures. Every
item,' however, received due consideration before it was finally red-
penciled or allowed to stand.
On the recommendation of Wilfred
Lee, Editor-in-Chief, Rosemary Win-
slow, the present secretary of the
L.S.E. was appointed Editor of the
The question,as to what form the
annual will take this year, and
whether there will be a publication
of this sort at all this year will be
left for future discussion.
Dorothy Myers brought forward
a proposal from her executive, the
Women's Undergraduate Society undertake to distribute worn out clothing collected from students, parents
and friends to the poor. The suggestion received hearty approbation
and the M.U.S. was asked to either
start a similar movement or to cooperate with the women in this respect.
The question of what organization
they would work through waa left
to the executive themselves to decide, although the Province Santa
Claus Fund was mentioned as a possible medium of distribution.
Upon recommendation of the aud
itors a motion was passed stating
that all purchases not covered by a
separate requisition, that is to spy,
incidental expenses, must be itemized and vouchers, or receipts for ill
expenditures over fifty cents be
turned in to the Business Manager
before payment will be made,
A circular letter to all executives
was ordered sent out. This letter
was to Inform them that IA the future au bills must bo covered by a
requisition before they will be payed.
It was pointed out that some organisations are buying merchandise and
then getting requisitions whereas in
future requisitions must be obtained
before the actual purchase is made
otherwise the bill will not be honored by Council. This rule will be
rigidly enforced.

Sciencemen Victorious;
Take Annual Distance
Classic In Fast Time
Science '34 took the major points in the Arts '30 Road
Race last Wednesday when they placed four runners amongst
the first six to breast the tape. George Sinclair won the race
In 14 minutes 41 2-5 seconds, with two classmates, Dave Carey
and Phil Northcott, In second and third positions respectively.
Sid Swift was unfortunately unable to continue the race, dropping out in the third lap when he was battling George Sinclair
for the lead.
The first lap saw the leaders al-'
ready establishing a formidable lead
over the rest of the field, with Coventry Dunn, Swift and Sinclair
almost 1-S of a lap to the good. Tho
Theologs were bunched together about
80 yards behind the leaders, and
continued to set an oven pace throughout the entire race.
The second tap saw Sinclair out in
front and Swift, Dunn and Carey
right on his heels. It was evident
by this time that the leaders would
have a wide margin of victory as
the tali-enders were almost half a
lap behind.
The third lap ended with Sinclair
establishing a definite lead which he
held for the remainder of the race.
Carey moved tip as Swift drooped
out, while Northcott Jimmy Dunn,
end George Allen were drawing well
awap from the Theologs, who were
inaking a strong bid for points by
their steady pace.
George Sinclair came into the
stretch with a lead of practically 109
yards. He finished strongly, and
seemed somewhat disappointed in his
time of 14iel 2-5. Dave Carey had sec-
est place by a safe mart- «nd Phil
Northcott was not threatened in tak-
lag third. Jimmy Dunn aftd George

And Meralomai
Rumor hath It that Doctor Burke
will try out many subs In the Senior
grid tussle against the Meralomas
Saturday afternoon at Athletic Park,
so as to have a goodly choice for
the intercollegiate series here.
It appears that Chodat, Perdue and
Waimsley will be out of the tussles
on November 14 and 16 against the
prairie college, due to the western
intercollegiate rules which are strict
concerning the playing of men that
hav* not completed their previou.
yOars at Varsity. Thus Doc Burke
will lose a classy half-back InWalm-
sley, a good, kicker in Chodat and
an excellent snap In Perdue.
The collegians took the measure
of the Meraloma* in their former
tussle with aid of the tricky Mclntyre, and this miniature whirlwind
may be back in the game Saturday.
Root will be back In there shouting signal, as usual and Scotty Mclnnes may turn out to prepare for
the Inter-colleglate. The students
have only one game after the Meraloma battle and this is with Victoria. The Blue and Gold will make
the visit to the Island.
The usual team will dash out on
the field Saturday and will try to
emulate their previous victory so
as to arouse interest in the coming
series. The students have to win a
couple of games to attract the Vancouver crowd.
Manitoba is the likely team to
journey here and thus the students
must, make a showing In the last
games to make the inter-colleglato
series appear more than a set-up tor

Hockeyists Meet
Vancouver Team
The Varsity Men's grass hockey
team will hook up with Vancouver
at Connaught Park at 2:30 Saturday
in an attempt to emulate its successful effort of last week. The U.B.C.
team is scheduled to play a practice
game against Crusaders on the campus hockey field.
The Varsity contingent held an
enthusiastic work-out on Wednesday
morning under the supervision of
the club coach Professor Black. Terry Holmes, stellar half-back, who
was unable to turn out last week
will be on hand again for Saturday's
clash. Bob Spurrier, too, who was
injured in the game last week, is
reported as progressing favourably
ond expects to be able to do his
part to bring Vancouver to its knees.

Home Economics
Instituted Here
As Full Coarse
Establishment of a Home Economics course at the University was announced by the Board of Governors,
at the board meeting in the Auditorium building Monday night. Arrangements have been made to give
a full four-year course to students
of Home Economics. This will supersede the provisional two-year
course that has hitherto been given.
Owing to the lateness of the term
those that start this year will be seven weeks behind, so the course will
be continued for seven weeks after
the close of the summer session, at
no extra tuition costs.
It will be remembered that the
women of British Columbia conducted a drive throughout the province
some years ago for the establishment
of this course and It Is now at last
brought to complete fruition.
The following courses will "const-
tute the new third year for Home
Economics students: Bacteriology
1 and 2; Social Service 4; Free Elective, Organic Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics. The last three
courses are new to students of Home
Economics and not available as credit towards a B. A.

SOCCERMEN Varsity Miracle Men
CLASH WITH    Engage Reps-Nov. 11
Varsity Senior Socceritos face a
heavy schedule ln the next two
weeks, meeting the two leading
teams. Renfrew Argyles who have
yet to taste defeat this- season, will
oppose the Blue and Gold squad this
week at Renfrew Park, East at 8:30
p.m. and on the following Saturday
Regents will furnish the opposition.
In spite of this formidable assignment the management of the Club
is confident that the boys will improve their place in the league
standings at the expense of these
strong teams.
Starting the season with an alarming dearth of material, the Varaity
team was rather pessimistic about
the season's prospects. Nevertheless
they have more than hold their own
in all games thus far, and at the
present occupy fourth position in the
standings, with a game m hand on
all other clubs.
With the signing of Jock Waught
this week, the team is greatly
strengthened. Waugh was a tower
of strength on the defense last season and he will probably resume at
half-back again. Thus with Kosoolin
at centre-half and, McDougal on the
left the students will present a powerful Intermediate line. Behind theM
men McGill and Grant at back are
expected to continue the stellar per-
formaneos which they have been
turning in this year. To complete
the defense, "Piccolo" Pete frattinger will be between the posts. Pete,
who is rapidly rounding into a first-
class net-minder, can be depended
upon to foil the efforts of the opposing forwards.
The centre forward berth has not
been settled but it is likely that
"Cherub" Costain will be the choice,
with "Otl." Munday and Dave Todd
again occupying the Inside positions.
At outald. left Laurie Todd will
partner brother Dave, while Jlmmle
Smith, who has been a constant
source of worry to th. opposing left-
halves, will again take care of the
right wing. These forward, are
equal to any In th. league and they
should give the Renfrew citadel custodians many anxious moments.
Regardless of the outcome of tha
match this Saturday, soccer followers will be treated to a great exhibition of the round-ball game, as
the teams are evenly matched and
the game will be closely contested
until the final whistle.

Of Victory In Fint Game Of
McKechnie Cup Series
On Wednesday,, November 11, the
Varsity McKechnie Cup team will
play its first game against its old

Morning practices, afternoon game.,
strict training rules, and chalk-talks

These McKechnie Cup games are
the most Important of the season,
for the Cup is the emblem of Rugby
supremacy ln the Province. This
Cup was donated by the Chancellor
of the University, Dr. McKechnie,
in 1818, for th. Provincial Rugby
Championship. Vancouver, Victoria,
Nanalmo, and other teams fought for
this trophy, and it was not until 1920
that Varsity entered the League.
When they did, it was with success,
for the Cup rested within the University walls until 1984, only to be
regained again in 1917.
Without boasting, Varsity does possess a wonderful team this year, and
hopes are high for victory.
The Club is planning a Pop-Meeting for this gam., to be hold on the
day before, and although this will

one Science and one Arts, will be In

In a moment of reflection the other day we estimated that
students making the Victoria trip, account for the expenditure
of approximately $3,500. This is on the basis of 300 students who
travel independently and 50 who take part in the games with
Victoria College. If students are considering such an expenditure, regardless of official sanction from Council, then we are
of the opinion that an effort should be made to have some
of this money turned into the Stadium Fund. The importance
of the Invasion from the point of view of fostering athletics
is undoubtedly great, but in our opinion, the question of completing the stadium is even more so. It seems obvious that if
the students are going to spend money on this trip, the success of any student campaign for the stadium would be materially damaged. It is important at any rate to remind the students that the stadium should come first and the Victoria Invasion second.
This year's desperate struggle to finance student activities
comes as a climax to many sessions of similar difficulties. At
a time such as this, we think it appropriate to revive the suggestion which has been tentatively offered in the past with regard to adopting the Scrip Book system at this University.
While every organization on the campus suffers through lack of
funds, it is mainly the athletic teams who feel the pinch, since
such clubs as the Players Club generally account for greater
receipts than expenditures, and along with the Musical Society
are naturally in a secure financial position. The great body
of athletic teams, however, depend upon grants from the general fund, which fund has been shrinking for the past three or
four sessions until it now requires a microscope to render it
visible. Perhaps the Scrip Book might not be the answer to
the prayers of an impoverished student body but it has immensely attractive possibilities which would bear a much closer
investigation than has been heretofore instituted.
Under the able leadership of Ralph
Thomas,- Varsity's track squad is at
present undergoing the most strenuous season it has encountered for
several years. The cinder artists no
sooner finish one meet when they
start preparing for another. The
next meet Is the all-important one
against Y.M.C.A., November 4 at
Hastings Park. This encounter is
becoming an annual affair and is of
interest to students and city enthusiasts.
Following the meet there will be
a dance which should bring the coeds out in droves as the admission
Includes the festivities.'
Another feature of the contest Is
the highschool relays that will be
run during the meet. Varsity will
present a strong team this year since
several extra-promising Frosh have
been uncovered.
Haddon Agnew will represent the
students in the weight events along
with Dirom if he should turn out
for the meet Denis Nicol will also
be out there tossing the weighted
Max Stewart will aid Varsity In
the sprints and will be aided himself
by Bob Osborne, Bobby Gaul and
perchance Pi Campbell. In the distance events the collegians have
such men as Jimmy Dunn, Alfi. Allen, Dave Carey and George Bin-
elair, winner of the Arts '80 road
race. In the pole vault Root and
Prevey will give the spectators a
view of high leaping. Ilia broad-
jump could be won by U. B. C. If
Hughie Smith would turn out Haddon Agnew and Dirom will represent the students in the high-jump.
Any one who wishes to do so can
challenge any man on tho tentative
list for a position oh the team at
the work-out today at 3 p.m. The
list is as follows:
880 yards-R. Forsythe, W. Patmore; broad jump-M. Stewart, H.
Ormsby, H. Smith; 880 yards-R, Osborne, B. Stott; high jump-R. Forsyth., H. Agn.w, H. Prevey; shot-
put—H. Agnew, G. Dirom; 40 yards
-R. Gaul, B. Stott; 440 yards-M.
Stewart, R. Osborne;-pole vault-G.
Root. H: Agnew, H. Prevey, G. Dirom; hurdles-H. Agnew, B. Stott;
mile-J. Dunn, G. Allan; 8 lap relay
-R. Osborne, M. Stewart, L. Clarke,
H. Campbell; shuttle relay—R. Gaul,
B. Stott, L. Clarke, H. Ormsby; hop,
step and jump—R. Osborne, M. Stewart.
Anyone wishing to replace any of
these men in the events in which
they are listed is urged to turn out
for today's work-out and exercise
their right of challenge.
Varsity women will be at the meet
competing in a relay against high-
school girls and also in a 40 yard
dash. A cup will be given for the
highest aggregate. Tickets for this
super-special affair can be bought
from any member of the track club
and from all appearances the entertainment will be well worth the
price of admission which is a mere
35 cents for the whole meet including the dance afterwards.
Blue and Gold badminteers swamped Quilchena 12-4 Wednesday night
in the Varsity gym. The students
playing ln the B division played well
in their shuffling of the shuttles. On
Monday night the team did not fare
so well and were defeated 16-0 by the
Hill Club. In the C2 division match
against Sh.ughns.sy Military, th. collegians finished on the small end of
a 13-3 score.
