Pep Club Get It the Wont
Inspired by the fairy beauty of the
campus after Tuesday's heavy snowfall, Artsmen, Aggie• and Sciencemen
found self-expression in a violent
snowflght Wednesday noon. Solid,
well-packed snowballs whistled unpleasantly across tho quad, often exploding with a gratifying "swop" in
the face of some brash combatant Tho
merry (inkle of glass sounded from
time to time, aa the result of some
erring soul thrusting hia face out of
an adjoining window and thus providing a tempting target for tho mow-
Pep Club Band Bit
Other opposing parties wore tht Pip
Club, the V.C.U., tho Swimming Club
and various free-thinkers who hit anyone in* a convenient position. Pop-
Clubber Ken Grant explained sadly
while gouging snow from his oars,
"Sciencemen threw snowballs at mo
because I was an Artsman, Artsmen
hit me occasionally in mistake for a
Scienceman, and they both hit me because 1 belong to tho Pep Club."
Ventilation Good Now
Onlookers watched the battle cautiously from around corners and doorways, and the odd pedestrian risked
his health and happiness ln an attempt to cross tho quad.
Tranquility returned at 1 o'clock
when bodies were removed and order restored. Ventilation in the Arts
men's Common Room was considerably improved as a result of tho affray.

Friday, January 18, the Player's
Club Alumni will be hosts to the
entire student body of the University
and their friends at a dress rehearsal
of their annual presentation of four
one-act plays. The plays chosen are
outstanding, as has already been announced, and those who had the opportunity of being present at the first
dross rehearsal on Wednesday are
loud in their praise of the program.
Admission is free, but in order to
defray expenses a silver collection
will be taken at the door. Half of
the proceeds of this ecliection will
be given to the active Players Club
in order that they may enter a play
in the Dominion Drami Festival. If
their play should be chosen to represent British Columbia in Ottawa
every person connected with the university will benefit from the advertising ;t will bring us. For this reason, every student by attending the
plays on Friday night is indirectly
benefiting himself.   Tuum est.
Anne Ferguson Takes'Part
The Alumni club regret to announce
that due to  Illness, Mary Darnborough will  be unable  to appear  in

their attendance.
Dean Brock's Offer Declined;
Acting Dean Will Be Appointed
Dean Wished To Give Part Time Work Without Pay
Second Meeting a Great Success
Dean R. W. Brock, recently appointed Chairman of the
Vancouver Harbour Commission, will not continue as Dean
of Applied Science, it was announced by President Klink
Wednesday morning. This was the decision reached by th*
Board of Governors at a special meeting Tuesday evening.

Committee To Discuss
New Policy For Relief
Is Formed By Mayor
There will be an Alma M :trr
meeting on January 24 at 12:15
p.m., for the purpose of considering the advisability of constructing a stadium and playing
field and borrowing money for
that purpose. Also the method of
repaying any money so borrowed.
At the special meeting nf the Board
of Governors on Tuesday evening, the
Chancellor, Dr. R. E. McKechnie, was
appointed to represent the University
at a meeting called by Mayor G. G.
McGeer of Vancouver. The Mayor
has invited representatives of leading
civic and semi-civic organizations to
discuss a new policy for relief and
publif works.
Many Representatives
His Worship, in calling this meeting, has commenced his attack on
some of the underlying problems
which are connected with the depression. He will have representatives from ne.irly twenty organizations.
The Board of Governors has announced that, although tloy have accepted the mayor's invitation, they
are not making a definite statement
of agreement with his policies. They
are, however, very willing to cooperate with Mr. McGeer and to
discuss the problems.
The class of '.38 held (heir first assembly on Tuesday noon in Arts 100
and  elected the following officers:
President,  Dave Lewis
Vice-President,   Peggy   Fox
Secretary, Janet Davidson
Treasurer,  Fred Dietrich

In charge of the gathering, which
numbered fifty freshmen and seventy-six freshettes {.long with some interested  upperclassmen.
The meeting having been called to
order, Dave Lewis and Konny Andrews were nominated for President.
Andrews spoke briefly en his own
behalf, while Bus Ryan said a few
words for Lewis, who wns not present. The voting was about three to
one in favor of Lewis. Peggy Fox
was elected by acclamation, and at
the conclusion of the meeting staged
that the class party would definitely
be held at the Spanish Grill sometime early in February, further details to be decided at the first meeting of the executive.
Girl Wins
The vote for Secretary was split
among four boys and a girl. Needless to say the girl was elected. The
choice for Athletic Rep's was quite
definite, the majority in both cases
being very large, the same being true
for the choice of Lit. Rep. Dorwin
Baird, who was nominated for th's
later post, was voted for by the mm
who nominated him and six glrto.

Musical Recital
Not Well Attended
Performers at noon-hour recitals
must work against conditions which,
at the best, are discouraging. The
auditorium is never as much as half
full. The pro tea mushcrs insist on
leaving the doors open for the entrance of those music patrons who
drop into a recital about 12:30. Even
with the doors shut one hears whistling outside, and the piano is incapable, apparently, of producing
anything louder than forte.
Since the performers are usually
excessively nervous, and only young
hopefuls anyway, the result is seldom
These conditions may explain the
opening two sections of Thursday's
program. Tho first vocalist was
often off pitch, while the pianist dis-
i played a distinctly erratic sense of
time. Yet there was merit in his
rendition, which was the Beethoven
F major Sonata.
The most competent performance
was a violin solo by Lois Tipping,
who played an Allegro iFiocco) with
feeling and balance.
A robust and pleasing voice was
revealed by Donald Kennedy in a
couple of belligerent songs about it
being Good To Be a Man. It is only
fair to add Mr. Kennedy was himself
quite meek and unassuming.
John Stark sang two songs of
semi-popular nature. He vould make
a good crooner.-C.
ABSENT FOR YEAR appointment, the Board of Governors
passed the following motion on Dm.
17: "Resolved that Dean R. W. Brook
be allowed to ocoept t".e Chairman*
ship of the Vancouver Harbour Board
and that he be granted leave of absence without salary."
Offered To Give Part Tins Work
Early this month, thc Governors
received a letter from the Dean, of*
fering his part time teaching services
to the University, without salary,
during his leave of abspr.ee.
This would mean that Dr. Brock
would continue to be the administrative head of his faculty, and would,
when he was free, continue to teach
certain classes. The Dean also made
several recommendations for staff appointments arising out of his absence.
This letter was,read at the Governors meeting on Tuesday.
Desn Thanked
After discussion, the Board passed
the following- resolution: "Resolved
that Dr. Brock be thanked for his
kind offer of Jan. 0, and that this offer be given further consideration ss
soon as an Acting Dean of Applied
Science to appointed."
This means that Dr. Brock will not.

Opinion Now More Favorable
General opinion, which has been

weaknesses in the scheme as a whole,

good management In the local chapter. Provision have been made in
the constitution to insure against laxity and indifference, and the form
to be taken by the three or more
sub-chapters leaves lit'lo room for
The Washington chapter has not
been an outstanding success, due to
the fact that it was formed as a non-
sorority group, and for obvious reasons failed to live up to the required
standards of friendliness and co-operation. One feature of the B.C. chapter in this respect is that it Includes
many first-year girls who will join
sororities next year and so hold
membership hi both societies.
Up to Us
The fact that Phrateres must build
up a standing against considerable
odds should furnish a motive in itself, for only the vague outlines of
aims and constitution come from the
United States. The international pin,
a gold "phi" on black enamel, and the
official ring, of a similar design, will
appear when Theta chapter is installed by officers of established chapters. Phrateres, which even in the

Great Mystery
Of Locked Door
Dr. Dallas Locked Out of
French I. Class
Billowing down the hall towards
Arts 101 to give a Wednesday 1:0*
o'clock lecture, Dr. Dorohty Dallas
was greeted outside the door by
three harassed freshmen, who informed her nervously that, although'
voices could be distinctly heard
within, the lecture room door was
Dr. Dallas moved to the door,
tapped, and then paused. There was
no response.
Dr. Dallas knocked firmly, and
paused again. Still thero was no response.
No Lecture?
Dr. Dallas rapped smartly several
times, waited, and then turned. "Of
course, if they really don't want a
lecture," she admitted, "I'd be just
as pleased to take the hour off." On
the protests of the freshmen, however, who were assured that the door
had locked of its own eccentric volition, and that it was not a conspiracy, the committee of four decided
to remain and see the thing through.
One freshman went outiide, and returned with the helpful news that
there were people within, sitting on
the radiators. All four cf the freshmen then trlel the door, which was
still locked.
Finally two freshmen went outside,
and, making a few snowballs, spattered them against tl.3 windows,
which were insantly opened. After
the chorus of derision and greeting
had died down, the freshmen yelled
up that Dr. Dallas was locked out
in the hall, and waiting patiently.
This statement produced immediate
results: everyone inside shouted
loudly, the door was opened, and a
window was pulled down smartly on
Dorwin Baird's neck which at the
time was stretched across the window
The freshmen then went in again,
Dr. Dallas opened her Moliere, and
class began in a general atmosphere
of pleasant satisfaction all round. Page Two

i/ADV      1
Phrateres, the latest addition to campus
organizations, has now apparently become definitely established. But there is much skepticism among the women students towards it,
and unless those who are taking an active part
in it counteract the effect of this scepticism
by their own enthusiasm, it is in grave danger
of fading away to an ignominious death.
There are always sceptics when persons of
courage and intiative attempt to introduce anything that is new and that requires enthusiastic effort on the part of students to make it
a success. These persons are like so much
dead weight impeding any progressive move
that the students may undertake, and the proper course is to ignore them altogether; for
every new project is deserving of at least sympathetic interest until it has been proved to
be impracticable.
This particular movement has a very laudable purpose - to bring about more contact
among the women students. As we have remarked, contacts made during one's college
career are a very important part of one's education, and if Phrateres functions according to
the system which has been outlined at the organization meetings, it should be of great benefit to its members.
By giving the women a really active organization, it should also unite them and foster
a spirit of loyalty to the university, which spirit
at present tends to be impeded by such individual groups as sorrorities. The unjustified distinction between sorority and non-sorority
women could be greatly reduced by the active
participation of the former individually in this
movement.   But at the same time provision
Gone to-morrow. For this issue I step
down from the mast-head like a tin soldier
from a shelf and columnize. A vicious practice, columnizing; I gave it up a year ago, but
like other bad habits it has a way of returning
when one's moral resistance is at low ebb.
Apollyon in this case is the Campus Crab, who

Greater love hath no man thanks,
The literary supplement which, come hell
or high water, will make its bow this spring,
began as one small snowball tossed by a man
of science who has done the Ubyssey good
service in past years. The ball is rolling now,
rolling so well that it can make its way with a
minimum of editorial ballyhoo. That, of
course, is all to the good; the prospect of bringing out a supplement without the usual frenzied appeals for aid, embasles to temperamental versifiers and last minute hack-work to
fill up gaping blanks is pleasing in the extreme.
A student supplement, this, and as such
bound to be immature in many respects, as the
sideline critics are certain to point out later.
But there will be good reading in it, and we
think you will be interested.
It may be simply beautiful, and it may
look nice on the trees of the scrub-acres
known as the University Forest, but I don't
like it. A bird of summer, I would hibernate
if I had my way, appearing only when rain
turns warm in April. Snow is all right in its
place, namely, on the hills where one can find
it when wanted. But snow in town is a species of white corruption, especially if one has
to pass a school on his way home.
"Bless the children!" thought I, watching
them at their Innocent play. Later, when I
had been drawn into the game, I breathed
other sentiments. Still, I have no real right
to complain, since the fault was partly mine.
I made a bet to the effect that there would be
no snow before Christmas, going clean against
the attested fact that Vancouver weather is a
poor horse upon which to place your money.
Probably, just because of that, winter will
continue well into May this year.

each group, and also to insure that a certain
proportion of the executive offices should be
filled by non-sorority women.
Only in this way can it achieve the demo
cratic purpose for which it was formed.
On Monday night the students of the University are going to have the opportunity to
listen to one of the best know of English scientists, Professor Julian Huxley. He is a man
of literature as well as a man of science, so
the fact that he is a scientist needn't prevent
Artsmen from attending.
Professor Huxley is chiefly known to the
general public by his works on popular science among which is "Essays of a Biologist."
He was also one of the collaborators of "The
Science of Life." He has also published poetry
such as "The Captive Shrew and other Poems." Certainly he shows a versatility that
rivals that of H. G. Wells, who was another
collaborator of "The Science of Life."
He is a worthy representative of one of the
most illustrious families of modern England.
His brother Aldous is probably the best known
of the two because of his widely read novel
"Point Counter Point."    Their    grandfather,
The statement had a pleasing ring to it, and the
idea was one in which to bask; but later,
doubts began to creep in.   Are we?
Far from it, say I. We, in fact, are definitely outside the Brotherhood of the Coast.
We live in the land, but we are not of it, and
to most of us it will always be alien country.
The men who have a real claim to the title
never saw the inside of the university.
The romance of the Coast touches us
sometimes, on skidroad streets where the men
of the Brotherhood drift by, men rough in
speech and sardonic in outlook, all somehow
vaguely alike. They have rare tales for the
telling, yarns that are gay and tragic, and
tinged by an underlying grimness. Miner and
logger, fisherman and prospector .... they
make a colourful background for the big names
associated with the progress of the British
Columbia Coast. Writers who feel that stories
of the hairy Northwest leave a lot to be desired would do well to know the Coast-rats.
If they can!

Farmers throughout H.C. frequently
send to the University samples of
soils and fertilizer which they with
analyzed. The Dept. of Agronomv
recently received a sample of fertilizer from East Wellington, Vancouver Island, addressed to "U.B.C. Lavatory." Analysis showed the sample
to be of considerable fertilizing value.
Musical Society Notes
Fred Saultobury has announced bis
withdrawal from the chorus of "Ruddigore." "My conscience made me,"
he states, "The chorus is using illegally mimeographde copies of the
opera, and the principle of absolute
honesty forbids me to support such
a practice in any way."
Jack Dicks, another Aggie, states
that he will remain In the "Ruddigore" cast until February 34. "It's
Jolly god fun" he was heard to remark. "With flattery sated, high-
flown and Inflated, I'll continue to
sing until thoroughly tired." Mr.
Dicks further opines that in such matters, "The heart should be your only
guide." Mr. C. Hayden Williams,
however, takes the opposite view, and
states that "There will be no sentiment from now on."

The McGill Dally becomes philosophical about tbeir editorial office:
"Time was, not so many years ago,
when it was the stornghold of shirtsleeves, cigar-smoking, strong- worded "journalism." But that is gone.
Gradually the sweet, little face of the
co-ed was seen, her light little voice
was heard, in the office, until today
it almost predominates."
Our senior editors don't smoke cigars either.
What with tho Art's \i7 and Junior
Prom coming on, this bit of editorial
comment from Montreal should be
of value:
"If one goes to any dance hall today, all that one sees below the
blaring trumpets is a mass of hu-
mnaity clinging together in couples,
practically sweating blood to see who
can form the most grotesque shapes."
Don't forget to support your class
and buy your tickets early.

We were pleased to discover an article in which the Ubyssey is referred to as one of the "four outstanding Canadian college papvfrs." The
following excerpt was a reprint in
the Toronto "Varsity' of an article
originally published in the "Student,"
the radical magazine on the Toronto
"The Student" believes that freedom of the press does not apply to
Canadian university papers and declares:
"The present plight of college papers may be blamed entirely upon
the student lack of militancy ....
Students are once more beginning
to realize the value of free opinion. Rights they have lost will be
more difficult to win back again.
The one way to do thla is to force
the principles of undergraduate self-
government to the point where this
will be genuine self-government and
that the student representatives will
be out for student interests and demands and not mere figureheads."
Thus concludes an article entitled
"The Death of College Papers" by
Merwyn Marks, one-time associate
editor of Tha Varsity in the December issue of The Student, the official publication of the Student League of Canada. The article discuses
the events leading up tc the suspension of throe editors and "the
loss of journalistic freedom from the
four oustanding Canadian college
papers, " The Varsity, McGill Dally,
The Ubyssey and The Manitoban.
While on the subject of freedom of
the press the following article should
be of interest:
"Students of Louisiana State University manifested their resentment
at restrictions placed on the Reveille,
the student publication, by Senator
Huey P. Long, by hanging in effigy
Dr. James M. Smith, president of the
University today"
The hanging revived the controversy placed on the Reveille, the stu-
Correspondence   J
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Today at noon anyone caring to
watch might have observed the playful gambollings of a nroup of male
adolescents on the area between the
Caf and the Arts building. In the
melee several windows were broken.
No one can find fault with the playful instincts of lusty children but
when this is done at tho expense of
a body of peoplo then they should
be checked. With all the waste space
around the University, why did they
have to pick on the particular spot
where their activities would do so
much damage? (r lest). That question will have to be answered by experts in the psychology of adolescents.
For myself I would enjoy breaking
a few windows. There b some Inner
part of me that glows with joy at
the delicious tinkling crash of a well
aimed snowball going through a window—and the bigger the window, the
bigger the thrill. BUT 1 cannot afford to break windows. Therefore
I restrain myself and when I see
others breaking them at my expense
(partly) I feel entitled to object.
It is to be hoped tho persons directly responsible for breakage will
have the fundamental honesty to report themselves to the proper authorities so that those who had he
enjoyment of tbe party will also have
the enjoyment of paying for it.
Very sincerely,

Dear Sir:
Can anyone inform me, through
the columns of the Ubyssey, whether
or not there is a small club on this
campus in which women students
may exercise the art of public speaking, and obtain practice in impromptu
repartee. After three years on this
campus I still find myself afraid to
speak in public.
Yours truly,

"Psychology of Religion" was the
topic of Mr. Jack Bell's interesting
paper at the Philosophy Club's meeting on Tuesday night at the home of
Dr. Pilcher. Mr. Bell (raced the beginnings of the'psychological study
of religion from Johnathaii Edwards
in 1758 to the beginning of the modern psychology of religion in G. Stanley Hall and through James' momentous work, "Varieties of Religious
Experiences" to the present writers,
Starbuck, Coe, Ames, Pratt and
Four Methods Used
Four general methods: the questionnaire, biographical, historical and
the comparative or genetic method,
have been used to gather data on
the phenomena of religion but each
has its dangerous pitfalls. The traditional, experiential and rational
reasons for a belief in God were reviewed. Conversion, religious revivals, mysticism and prayer were also
Problems Unsolved
Although the study of Psychology
of Religion has brought about scientific methods in religious education,
as yet it haa not been able to solve
the religious problems of the world.
It has dealt mostly with the abnormal, the pathological and the erratic
and the normal religious experiences
of the average individual have not
been touched. The findings of the
psychologist in the religious field
have not been able to demonstrate
any of the truths of Theology so that
religion must still rest on a personal
trust in a Divine Being.

Dear Sir:
Aa a member of two organizations
who may appoint delegates to the
"Anti War Conference' may I ask
the organizers of this movement two
questions? ,
First, is it to be a purely Varsity
movement, in the sense that no outside organization whatever is taking \
part,  not even at  a  different place
but at the sama time?
Second, is it going to use the name
of the University of British Columbia,
or is it going to permit reports to
appear in the local press which would
give the public the impression that
those who take part in any sense
whatever represent our beloved Alma

McKechnie Cup Clash Between Varsity and
Vancouver Rep. Postponed for Fourth Time
Once more the Vancouver Rep. Varsity McKechnie Cup
game haa been postponed. The Weather Man with his little bag
of tricks has caused this epic athletic struggle to be postponed
four times.
Originally the game was to be played Christmas Day. It
snowed. Then the game was to be played New Year's Day. It
snowed. It was to be played the Saturday after New Year's.
It snowed.   It was to be played this Saturday.   It is snowing.
If present weather forcauts are any^
indication the game will be played
sometime hi the middle of August
if the league can get ths money necessary to ship the players to Honolulu.
Senkler Out?
No definite information could be
obtained as to the status of Science-
man Senkler. Senkler, star scrum
man and apparently the cnly man on
the team who can drop kick, failed
to get the necessary percentage in
the Christmas exams. However, by
the use of technicalities the moguls
hope to get Senkler okayed for the
next Rep. game, and for the rest of
the league schedule.

The semi-annual inter-class swim
gala was run off with great success
on Tuesday last, at tha Crystal Pool.
Thera wu an unusually largo turn
out of swimmers, and contestants In
soma events had to hoop strictly to
the straight and narrow ia order to
avoid being trampled to death by the
thundering herd. Aria and Aggie
were well represented but women
and edeiicemen were conspicuoas by
their absence. Wild screams were
heard in the dressing room when the
lone engineer who did turn up found
that the bunard had Ailed hia bathing suit with snow.
All events were well contested and
the close finishes caused considerable
excitement. The meet with the U. of
Washington has been postponed until
Feb. 0 to allow men who were away
for the holidays to get back in shape,
"shape" being literally true in one
or two cases where Christmas carousing has caused swim-trunks to become obstinate about closing. Another situation arose on Tuesday
when the relay event was run off.
What about the Science relay (quest)
After bitter arugment the Science
relay team hitched up his pants,
swallowed his pride and swam for
Arte '37.   (This team lost!!).
Held Pleased
Jack Reid professed himself pleased
with the showing made and urges all
swimmers to turn out as often as
possible in tho next three weeks. Today Varsity hi\s the st.ongest swim-
team since 1930 and Members are
urged not to let defeat come through
lack of training. With three weeks
training the Varsity team hope to be
able to give tbe U. of Washington a
good run. The one fly in the Varsity
ointment is Jack Medica. At mention of his name sprinters turn pale
and middle distance nun feel weak
at the knees. Will he swim for the
U. of Washington or not (quest).
A meeting will be called shortly
to discuss a team gala and dance
tentatively set for Tuesday, Feb. 5,
the object being to note improvement
in time after two weeks training.

Bardsley Leads the Point Scoring Race With
12 and Proves Mainstay of Varsity
To Willoughby Goes the Honour of Scoring
the Winning Basket
There was thunder and lightning in New Westminster
Wednesday night and the Thunderbirds gloried in it. In a
thrilling overtime battle the Varsity cagers came through with
a two-point victory over the Adanacs when Art Willoughby
flashed through the Yellow-jacket's defence like the lightning
that accompanied his deed to score the winning points.
Jimmie "Bugs" Bardsley was the hero of the struggle, managing to pile up almost half of the Varsity score while figuring
in a good part of the rest. Willoughby and Pringle also showed
up well.
» The teams ran neck and neck from
start to finish, the largest lead in the
whole game being that of five points,
enjoyed by the Collegians midway
ln the second half.
Game Starts Fast
The game started at a fast pace
with Henderson opening the scoring.
The Adanacs came right back with
two baskets and a frea shot, but
Bardsley and Mansfield and Pringle
with a long shot sent thc Thunderbirds out ln the lead again. Ken
Wright missed two foul ehots against
Henderson for pushing, but Mayers
and Matthison pushed in a couple of
rebounds. Wright, Henderson and
Bardsley sank three long shots while
Fraser and Wright countered for the
Adanacs, and nt half time the score
was locked at thirteen points apiece.
Unhurried and methodical playing
in the second half sent the blue and
gold away to their 20-15 lead. Adanacs began to creep up however,
and Varsity's stalling tactics proved
in vain when "Truck" MacDonald
took a pass under the basket and
hooked the ball through to even the
score. Rann Matthison was unlucky
enough to miss a free htrow just as
the whistle want, and the full-time
score was 23-23.
Winning Basket Comes Early
Five minutes of overtime failed to
produce more than Wllloughby's one
basket which came only a few seconds after the br.ll was back in play.'
The game was getting very rough and
the referees, who were, incidentally,
efficient, had a rather hard time.
This victory puts Varsity in a tie
with the Royal City quintette for
the league leadership. This fact,
combined with the schedule change
favoring the Thunderbirds, has considerably heightened tho hopes of
their supporters.

Adanacs—Mayers 8, Holmes, Wright
