Of Measles Scare
SavsU.B.C. Nurse
Severe  Epidemic  Threatened  at  Disease
Runs Rampant Through Lecture Rooms
And Maying Fields
The University is exposed to trie dangers of a severe epidemic of measles. Mrs. C. A. Lueas of the University Health
Service states that she cannot emphasize too strongly the danger to the student body arising at the present time.
An epidemic is widespread in the city, and in the last week
a,number of cases have appeared in the University. In order
1g> prevent any further spread, all students have been requested
to report to the University Health Service the slightest indis-
position. The common cold is one of the first symptoms of the
disease. For the sake of themselves and all other students,
those  suffering  from  colds  should <3>
report Immediately. Those however,
who have suffered an attack, are
generally immune from a second infection.
Seriousness Stressed
The seriousness of measles Is not
generally realized by the public. In
some epidemics the death rate may
reach 35 or 40 per cent. Pneumonia
and mastoid are common complications arising from the disease.
Former Epidemic
In the 1937-28 session of the University before the establishment of
the Health Service a serious epidemic ran unchecked, literally hundreds being affected. In order to
prevent the serious loss that an epidemic will entail, all those suffering
from indlspostlon, or those who have
had communication with infected
persons, must report immediately.

Irish Players Give
Varied Repertoire
During Visit Here
The visit to Vancouver next week
of the Abbey Theatre Company Irish
Players from Dublin will be greeted
with interest by followers of the legitimate stage in the University and
in Vancouver.
This company needs no introduction to students of the drama. Established in the early part of the
century by a group of cultured Irish
men and women, its aim was to
present original plays expressing the
Celtic ideal.
Among t|e early founders and contributors to this Irish theatre were
Lady Gregory, J. M. §ynge, Padraic
Colum, Lord Dunsany and William
Butler Yeats. The artistic work of
the theatre since the war has not
been neglected and such well-known
dramatists as Sean O'Casey, St. John
Ervine and Lennox Robinson, the
present director who is now in Vancouver, have contributed their share
to the advancement of Irish plays
and the Irish cultural life.
This is the second visit of the company to America. Their first tour
was before the war under the direction of Lady Gregory.
The Abbey Theatre Company was
created as the National Theatre of
Ireland by the Free State Government, and their present tour Is with
the express permission of the Free
State authorities.
The company will present a varied
repertoire during their short visit of
one week at the Vancouver Theatre.
And the University of Washington
is another institution that throws coed parties. The last one given realized
$300.     .

Prof. H. M. Thomson addressing a

Institute, Monday, 8 p.m. The lecture was glveh under auspices of the
B. C. Chamber of Mines.

A mercury boiler is now being
constructed of similar steel. It is

boiler is rendered practicable by the
new type of steel.
"Iron Horse"
"A number of years ago we used
to hear that electric locomotives
were taking the place of the old
"Iron Horse" but again discovery by

At Noon Hour Meeting
Famous Explorer
To Lecture Here
Thursday Night
One of the best known explorers
in the world and a man who attracted world admiration together
with a knighthood from King George
for his epic dash to the North Pole
last summer in the submarine Nautilus, Sir Hubert Wilkins of Australia will be a visitor in Vancouver
next week.
Under the sponsorship of the Kinsmen Club of this city Sir Hubert
Wilkins will deliver a lecture at the
Empress Theatre on Thursday, January 28 at 8:30 p.m. on his famous
submarine trip. The lecture will be
accompanied by motion pictures
taken during the trip.
Sir Hubert is now on the Pacific
coast making plans for another polar
trip and his lecture next Thursday
will be more of an interesting and
scientific value. Tickets are now on
sale at the Kelly Piano Co. on Granville Street and special rates are being offered to students. The proceeds of the lecture will be used in
the Kinsmen Club community service work.
Professor Boving
To Talk on History
Of Sweden's Arts
In what promises to be one of the
most interesting addresses of the
year, Professor P. A. Boving will
trace the development of "Swedish
Art" at a meeting of the Art Club
at the home of Miss Muriel Christie, 1441 Mathews Avenue, on Tuesday evening, January 26 at 8:15 p.m.
Professor Boving will deal with
the various aspects of the sculpture,
painting, and architecture of Sweden, briefly mentioning the art of the
other Scandinavian countries, from
the carvings of the early Vikings to
the most recent developments in
Swedish architecture. His address
will be illustrated by means of a
collection of over two hundred
beautiful   photographs   and   prints.
All the members of the club and
any others who are interested are
cordially Invited.
"Miss Edith Cavell, head of a
Nursing Institute in Brussels, was
secretly tried by a German court-
martial on the charge of aiding English, French and Belgian soldiers to
escape from Belgium,- 'end on October 12, was hastily executed."
The story of Mia Cavell's heroic
conduct during tha World War was
detailed by Miss Mary Cook to the
Literary Forum on Tuesday noon in
Arts 105. ,
A brief story of Miss Cavell's life
and training before the war showed
her high ambitions and steady can/-
abilities. When war was declared
she was the matron of the Berhen-
dall Medical Institute, Brussels.
"During the first year of the war
she nursed, without discrimination,
Belgians, British and Germans.
Throughout this period with the aid
of friends in Brussels, she was instrumental in conveying many of
the wounded Allied soldiers across
the frontier into Holland where they
were furnished with money, and
thus able to rejoin their armies."
This was the "crime" which won
Miss Cavell her death sentence.
Without a fair trial and separated
from her friends, she faced her executioners with .the utmost calm.
A memorial service was held for
Miss Cavell In Westminster Abbey.
The monuments throughout the
world show the reverence and love
which her sacrlfioe inspired.
The second half of the Forum's
program, a review of Walpole'o
"Wintersmoon," was presented by
Miss Jean Witbeck.
"Wintersmoon is the last of four
of Walpole's books portraying a section of English society from 1900-27.
this book is the story of the upper
classes of post-war days."
The plot was carefully outlined
and the excellent dialogue commented on. Miss Witbeck found little
variety in the characters, most of
them being simply types.

Large Enrollment
In Horticulture
Shows Popularity
Despite a raise from one dollar to
two dollars In the registration fee,
the annual short course in Horticulture offered by the Facutly of Agriculture continues to ,grow In popularity. ,
More people have attended tho
course each year, until this year tha
number of those registered exceeds
eighty. So popular is the course
that some of the students have taken it for as many as three years in
succession. The enrollment Includes
not only men and women who earn
their living from the soil but also
many from the city who arc interested in amateur gardening or care
of house plants.
The course, which is in progress
from Monday, January 18 to Friday,
January 29, includes such sujects
as vegetable and fruit growing of
all kinds, home gardening, pruning,
and raising bulbs. The mornings
are occupied with lectures, while the
afternoons are passed in laboratories
and field practice. Lecturers include
several government horticultural experts, as well as the professors of
the Faculty of Agriculture.

Council Considers
Hefty Curtailment
Of Social Calendar
Favorable Public Opinion Sought in Economy Move on Part of Undergraduate
Discussion of measures for curtailing University social
functions occupied Council for some time at their meeting on
Monday night. The Senior Class Ball, scheduled for Jan. 29th,
the Sc. '35 class party, Jan. 22nd, and the Freshman class party
on Feb. 4th, were mentioned as being most liable to ommission
from this term's social calendar.
It was held that the cutting of any one of the above functions would be unjust to the members of that class, and that
only by curtailment of all three could a fair solution to the
problem be obtained.
Turned Down Last Year
Senior Class Ball
To be Outstanding

that they are unable to attend.
Those who don't pair off will be
drawn off, and the results posted on
the Notice Board in the Quad. Entrance will be by invitation only,
and these will be distributed to the
women from the Box office in the
Auditorium Building on Tuesday
"Those who have not paid their
fees will please remember that the
class expenses are extremely heavy
this year, and we ask all members
of the class to settle with the treasurer as soon as possible if they have
not done so already. Those who
have not paid their fees will not be
admitted to the Ball," stated the
President  today.

C.I.P. Union Plans
To be Submitted
For Appropriation
Plans for the formation ot a western division of the Canadian Intercollegiate Press Union as outlined
by W. F. Payton, editor of the Toronto "Varsity" during his recent
visit to the west, are bearing fruit.
Tentative plans were discussed nt
a recent meeting at Saskatoon between the editors of the Saskatchewan end Manitoba student papers.
The successful fruition of these plans
will greatly facilitate the exchange
of intercollegiate news and ideas between Canadian universities.
The Canadian Press Union is at
present operating at Toronto University, Queen's Western Ontario and
McGill. The adaption of the four
western Canadian university papers
will greatly widen the scope of its
activities   and  usefulness.
Under the plans of the Union the
Ubyssey will relay news of interest
by wire to the University of Alberta
paper which in turn wil pass tho
news eastward. In return the Ubyssey will receive the pick of eastern
student news by wire from Alberta.
Final arrangements between Ubyssey and other western student papers
are expected  in a short time.
Hi-Jinx:    Friday,    7:30
The student body last year considered a report drawn up by a special
committee with regard to cutting
down the number of social functions, and almost unanimously voted
against curtailment of major dances.
Council and Faculty are of the
opinion that, in view of the present
State of economic affairs and the
uncertain conditions pertaining to
Univeraity finances, some further
step should be taken, with the full
co-operation of the students, to reduce the number of social activities.
Council feels that such a step on
the students' part would do much
to influence public opinion in favor
of the University, and takes the position that in the event of the rumoured reduction in funds becoming a
reality, the University will be in
greater need of public support than
No Science Ball?
With regard to the Science Ball,
scheduled for February 12, Council
discussed the deficit sustained since
last year by the Facutly of Science,
and made the decision that unless
the amount owing were made good
at once, the Science Ball could not
be held this year. The alternative
of allowing preparations for the Ball
to go forward now, with payment
of the deficit after the dance had
taken place, was not considered
The business of examining the expense accounts of members who
travelled cast during the Christmas
holidays, as representatives of the
University, or with the U. B. C. basketball team, was concluded satisfactorily.

FRlpAY> JANUARY 22,1932
Of what value is the University to business
in Vancouver? This question, in view of the
downtown attitude, demands an answer.
The governmental grant to the University last
year was $457,000.00; students' fees amounted
to something over $280,000.00, so that the total
amount spent ln Vancouver by the University
itself is this year $707,000.00. This amount is
•pent with business organizations of Vancouver for supplies, which the University uses
during the college year. It includes, of course,
professors' salaries, which are largely spent
for food, clothing, and shelter, within the city.
The University gives employment to one
hundred and forty odd professors and assistants, and about twenty-five Janitors, electricians, fifteen stenographers, and other similar
It gives direct employment to at least one
hundred and ninety men and women of this
province, and reduces the available labor
supply in the province by at least two thousand. In times like these when there are
already ten thousand men working in relief
camps throughout the. province and many
others receiving direct relief in the various
cities and municipalities, an added two thousand would be a very serious drain on the
purse of the long suffering tax-payer.
The two thousand students spend at least
fifty dollars a month for seven months of the
year. That is to say, the student body gives
Vancouver business trade to the value of seven
hundred thousand in clothing, amusements,
food and other products. Assuming that the
four hundred and thirty summer session students spend the same amount for two months,
it means that forty-three thousand dollars is
added to the amount which directly benefits
Vancouver business.
The annual turnover of the Alma Mater Society is approximately forty thousand dollars,
spent for stationery, sporting goods, and other
things, all of which are bought in Vancouver;
besides the direct employment which it gives.
Summarizing what has preceded: $1,490,-
000.00 is directly spent in and around Vancouver by people directly connected with the University, or by the University itself; employment is given to one hundred and ninety men
and women of the province; and the available
labor supply of the province is reduced by two
thousand. •
Let Vancouver say whether the University
is "good business" or not.
The last issue of the Ubyssey contained a
prominent front page announcement to the effect that there would be an Alma Mater meeting to discuss the curtailment of social activities. Subsequent notices announced that the
meeting was postponed and so at present the
social program has remained unmolested.
This movement to reduce the entertainment
side of University life originated at the regular
Council meeting on Monday night and, while
it has not materialised to any extent, due to
the postponement of the Alma Mater meeting,
it is interesting to consider the merits and demerits of the case.
In the first place it seems that some of the
previous functions have resulted in a deficit
which is a serious matter in these days of reduced budgets. The difficulty with this fact
is that many of the functions .belong specifically to one or another group of students and
it hardly seems fair to penalize one group for
the shortcomings or misfortunes of another.
The second reason given to justify the proposed curtailment is that public opinion will be
favorably impressed by the sacrificial attitude
of the students.—The papers will not be filled
solely with reports of University dances which
at present constitutes the major part of University news which gets into the public press.
—The need for creating a favourable impression in the public eye, particularly at the present time, cannot be denied. However, to cut
out the functions in order to avoid the reports
pertaining thereto seems to be attacking the
problem from the wrong end. What has happened to the press committee which at the be-
The singing of several madrigals by six
members of the Musical Society at the last
noon-hour concert was a delightful innovation.
Comments expressing pleasure
Madrigals were to be heard on all sides. Unfortunately, it is said that there can
be no more of this group singing this year, but
one hopes for its continuation whenever possible.

At first sight, the suggestion of a graduate,
writing to the editor, that the freshman class
be eliminated next fall ag an economy measure,
appears to merit consideration.
Freshmen Pay It is true,'that Senior Matricu-
Thelr Way latlon classes are held ln some
high schools, but the accommodation Is not sufficient to care for additional
hundreds of students. Furthermore, a large
proportion of the total University fees comes
from Freshmen.   For these reasons the idea
suggested Is "not so hot."
*     e     *
Having given free advertising to the British
Players, it is only fair that I should do the same
for the Irish Players. This company, from the
Abbey Theatre, Dublin, opens a week's
Irish engagement at the Vancouver Theatre
Drama on Monday. The Abbey Theatre, founded over twenty years ago by William
Butler Yeats, Lady Gregory, and others, has
been an'Irish cultural centre, and is called
"The National Theatre of the Irish Free State."
I am not very familiar with the subject,
but I know that this is a great age in Irish literature. Such names as J. M. Synge, William
Butler Yeats, James Joyce, Sean O'Casey and
James Stephen are among those famous in the
world of letters.
Those who are not acquainted with these
plays will be delighted. Synge's work is particularly notable. The language is, of course
that of the Irish characters, with their peculiarities of speech, and it is full of beauty and
poetry. The Irish Players deserve as hearty
a welcome as that accorded to Sir Barry Jackson's company.

The S.C.M. is sponsoring a series of unu
sually interesting noon-hour lectures this term.
They will all have something in common, for
they may be said to deal with var-
Our Social ious aspects of our social order
Order and the outlook for the future.
On January 26, Professor Angus
will speak on "Economic Reconstruction," a
problem of great concern to everybody at the
present time. Then Dr. McNeill of Fairview
Baptist Church will discuss "Christianity as
the Dynamic of a New Social Order." The
subject is of very great interest, and I am particularly eager to hear Dr. McNeill present his
case. Mr. John Ridington has taken a fundamental topic, "The Influence of Economic Conditions on Cultural Development." Dr. Boving
will deal with the confused question of "Heredity and Progress." Dr. Brewing of Wesley
United Church will speak on "Some Developments in Industrial Ethics." Dr. Weir, head
of the Department of Education, will conclude
the series with an address on "Education as a
Stabilizing Factor."
To all who are interested in the world in
which they live, every one of these lectures
should prove stimulating and valuable. The
S.C.M. deserves a vote of thanks for having
arranged such an excellent program.

Letters to the Editor
Editor Ubyssey:
In an endeavor to clear up any misconceptions that may have arisen out
of the Sportorial appearing in the last
issue of your paper, I feel that it is
my duty to express my own views on
the several points brought up, Might
I say that this reply results from the
fact that I was the official B. C. Delegate to the W.C.I.A.V. and W.C.I.R.U.
meetings In Saskatoon, and also
manager pro tern, of part of the
Basketball Tour.
I disagree with the Sportorlal's comment that "certain of the other colleges in the W.C.I.A.U. are forming
the habit of imposing upon the students of U.B.C." Such a statement, unfounded as it is, is certainly not to
the best interests of Intercollegiate
In regards to the Basketball Tour,
it is true that Manitoba, by their indecision, upset arrangements to such
an extent that greater economy was
required throughout the trip. Another factor forcing economy was indefinite guarantees posted by several
of the other teams. The final arrangement with Manitoba, although not as
good as wt would have liked, was
very fair under the circumstances. By
a mutual arrangement they wars to
pay us a minimum guarantee of $1W.
We at B. C. should appreciate Manitoba's position. They have no com
pubory fee but have to rely on a
voluntary fat, receipts from ssle of
student scrip books, and activity returns. Owing to their financial instability last year, they were faced with
the prospect of being out of Intercollegiate competition this season. They,
however, have found it possible to
remain In this year but era still on
probation. Surely, they cannot be
fairly attacked for the conservative
manner In which they handle their
In regards to the proposed U. B. C.
Canadian Rugby Game In Winnipeg
next fall, as far as I am aware, there
has been no official report to the effect
that Manitoba cannot meet the minimum liability of 1800.00. As a matter
of fact, there are several definite
reasons against our team making such
a trip, among which are: long absence
from lectures, and the high expense.
Tho other arrangement, where U.B.C.
plays Alberta and Saskatoon only, is
much more suitable in respect to these
two Important considerations.
The Sportorlal's concluding remarks,
I judge, were for effect only and not
meant to be taken seriously. I say this
because the three other Universities
say that Intercollegiate competitions
costs them amounts which are at least
twice as much as ours.
I would like to suggest that the
author of any subsequent Sportorial
be sure to confirm its substance before
publication. Erroneous comments only
lead to trouble. In regards to the
Sportorial under question, my personal opinion is that there was no
justification for the attack on the
W.C.I.A.U. and W.C.I.R.U. and its
members, and that an apology should
be forthcoming.
Yours   for   better   Intercollegiate
Ed. Note: The authors of Sportorials
and other material which appears In
the Ubyssey always endeavour to confirm the substance of their reports before they are published. We agree that
erroneous statements only lead to
trouble. We shall be happy to present
to our authority for any statement
which appeared in the Sportorial
under discussion. We are interested in
writer's personal opinion with regard
to the necessity of an apology. It Is
not the same as ours.

Last Night
0      0
Last night I had a dream. Thus:
There was a rap at the door, and
in walked a man, saying, "Yea, I
am H. G. Wells. Wouldst like a trip
In my time-machine?" And in the
same courtly spirit I replied, "Uh-
Next we found ourselves transported to his Time-machine.
1,Where would you like to go, sirrah?"
"Anywhere, O most munificent
So the mad genius twirled a knob
three times. "W* are going back/'
he said, "to ten thousand B. C.
And," he continued, "th* place la in
Msxlco."     •
He adjusted several contraptions,
and finally nulled a switch. A tremendous roaring filled my ears.
"Fight! Fight! Rah! Rah!" I whispered in spite of myself.  Everything
went black	
} woko un te find myself lying on
a bit of grass, and several stones
by th* fe*l of it. A man in a flowing purple rob* was bending over
And then, in th* fashion of dreams,
I found myself In th* court, with
th* King ordering th* execution of
his Grand Vlsier.
"Hast thou never heard, miserable,
of th* Divine Right of Kings?"
he hissed.   "Darest thou to Question
my right to order thee to draw th*
flagpole in spats?"
"Let me tell you a fable," he continued, as he munched a piece of
pomegranate pie. "Grand Viziers
hav* always been a nuisance.
"There was once a King of this
country who, having heard of King
Suleiman Isaac McCohan de Ginsberg, decided, to go him one better.
He married one thousand and one
wives. His offspring, to put it bluntly, were numerous.
"When these children were nearly
twenty ,years of age, he decided to
continue their education. Going on
a far journey to a place called Chile
Wak, he left many tutors to Instruct
his sons and daughters In many arts
and  sciences.
"But the Grand Vizier, by name,
Patrick Algernon McFarlane, was a
relation of King Suleiman Isaac McCohan de Ginsberg, and had inherited some of that worthy man's par-
simoniousness. In fact, he had inherited it all.
"So first he refused to give moneys for the King's Royal Bird Bath,
which was in need of its Annual
filling of water.
"And then he refused to buy a
new button for a member of the
Dishwashing fraternity. And then,
with a scream, he decided to cut the
fees of the tutors for the King's
But just at this point the dream
faded, as dreams will. I heard Wells
beside me murmuring, "Too much
static." The inventor was struggling
with the dials, trying to get back In
time to hear the end of the story.
He made a slight mistake, and we
landed twenty years later.
All around us were men digging
ditches. "The unemployed," whispered Wells.
There were no engineers to direct
them, But wait, there was one, evidently a Russian, just around the
corner, probably looking for Prosperity. The Palace was closed, fof
there was no one civilised to inhabit
it. There was no King, for no one
knew enough Economics. We could
not account for this; we guessed it
was the advent of Communism, and
let it go at that.
A Tragedy
There was once a little measles germ
by the name of Honnerrinch. He was
a very good little germ, most oft the
time, but he wouldn't listen to his
momma's words of warning.
"We are now," sh* said, "living in
the throat of a very nice and peaceable janitor. Don't run away to anybody's home."
But the little Honnerrinch wouldn't
listen. One night he got out of his
nice little bed and looked out the
window. He saw a nic* big moon shining far up abov* him. How was he
to know that it was just th* tip of
th* janitor's cigarette? He had never
smoked a olgarett* himself in his llf•
So llttl* Honnerrinch wrapped up
all his treasures, including th* bit
of eh**s* that had get stuck in tit*
Janitor'a throat,' and fared forth.
He landed In th* throat of a politician's son. By and by, wh*n h* wag
getting quit* old, th* son grew up
te be another politician. '
And he made a speech.
And after two hours of It, Honnerrinch died.
Which Just shows you.

The great Blowout lighted a cigarette, and throwing It away, continued. "It Is obviously," he said, "a
murder. Now someone must have
committed that murder. In all my
vast experience," he murmured, "I
have never yet seen a murder that
did not reveal a murderer, nor have
a ever seen a murderer that had not
committed a murder.
"The only point is, who committed
the crime? It's a very subtle point,
and one that I must solve for the
aesthetic entertainment it will give
me. Come," he said, throwing away
the piece of toast he had been
munching, "let us go."
We   moved   out   of   the   Chinese
gambling den that we had been eating    in;    absent-mindedly    Blowout!
forgot to pay his check.
A long, low Packillac, seventeen
cylinders, was purring at the curb,
much as a hungry mouse does.
Blowout leaped in; the car swept
away, when suddenly Blowout
jammed on the brakes. The car
skidded to a standstill. "I've forgotten the ignition-key," he ex
plained. He was back in a minute-
no, two minutes—and once more the
car swept majestically on.
As we whizzed round a corner, I
asked  where we were going.
"Don't know," replied the mastermind, "but something always happens In these stories."
Almost Immediately Something did
happen. There came a rattle. "Fisher's Ford, "I gasped, as memories of
that magnificent contraption came
tumbling back. "Machine-gun!" yelled
Blowout, "Duck!"
I ducked. Blowout lit a cigar.
Throwing it away, he threw the car
into high. Round another corner
we swept on one wheel. Prosperity
wasn't there. We tore round another
corner; faster and faster went the
car. Fourteen—fifteen—fifteen and a
half— "Faster, faster," shouted the
Red Queen. No, that's the wrong
Suddenly, above the roar of the
kiddie-cars behind us we heard another sound. Dim forms loomed up
in front of us, mounted on scooters.
"Ping!" and another redskin bit the
dust. No, no, my mistake. The ping
was caused by a knife of Oriental
design that was now quivering ln
the glass of the windshield.
"Chang Suey and his tong men,"
burbled Blowout.as he lighted another cigarette and threw it away.
"Caught between two fires," I
hissed, and not a service station in
sight. I want some fish and chips,"
I remarked as I hadn't eaten for six
Blowout jumped out of the car,
and stopping just long enough to
stroke a stray kitten that had wandered up, I joined him. "Where are
we?" I asked.
"Hogan's Alley," shouted my companion in a low voice. We could
not hear a sound, except the squeak
of shoes as the Chinamen surrounded us.
"In here," snarled Blowout, smashing a window. In we went. Tho
room was dark; Blowout lit a cigarette, and as he threw it away, we
saw a door in the corner. Through
it we rushed stealthily. We found
ourselves in a corridor. A peep-hole
was open at the other end, framing
the face of Chang Suey. It slid
shut. Desperately we tried to open
the door we had just come through.
It was locked! Chang Suey's evil
laugh  whizzed slowly  round  us.

Lose in Basket
Fray Wednesday
Varsity's Intermediate "B" team
went down to defeat once more on
Wednesday night at the New Westminster Arena when they Tost to the
fast-stepping McKenzie and Fraser
five by 38-9.
For the first five minutes of the
game it looked as though theremlght
be some competition. Norm Hyland
sank the first basket of the game,
New Westminster retaliated with two
baskets and then Jack Richardson
of Varsity tied the count at 4-4.
From that time on the game had all
the earmarks of a firat-class slaughter. Uttle Charlie Holmes of the
McKenzie and Fraser gang sneaked
in for basket after basket and Cy
Phillips of Science '35 Is reported to
be chasing the diminutive flash yet.
A veritable shower of baskets rained
,on the Varsity net and halt time
fcund the count 18-5.
The second half proved even worst
than the first, about the only time
Varsity players getting their hands
on the ball being for throw-ins. Thc
New Westminster boys showed how
they got to the top of the league
with fast breaks and good shots.
Norm Hyland, Varsity captain, relieved the tension, or perhaps it was
the embarrassment of the Varsity
five when he sank a nice shot from
well out. With but five minutes to
go, Varsity scored again on a nice
play. Although all reports are not
in on the McKenzie and Fraser score
statisticians have assembled below
the efforts of tho Varsity five:
Hyland (6), Richardson (2), Kentc
(1), Harper, Phillips, McLellan, Mclntyre, Aqua.

Varsity's senior A basketball team, the squad that manages
the unusual, pulled another fast one by taking a 28-19 trimming from the First Church Excelsiors at King Edward Gym
on Wednesday night. After battling on even terms for 36 minutes, the collegians let the church squad through for 11 points
in the last part of the struggle.
Undoubtedly the Blue and Gold squad was bothered by the
small floor, but the boys from Point Grey looked less like a
Canadian championship squad than they have before this season. Excelsiors took the lead at the start and while the studenta were getting under way, ran did not aid the student cause mater-
in nine points. At half time the
U. B. C. squad had started into action running in four baskets and a
foul shot to tie the count at nine
Varsity opened the second period
with a strong attack and for several
minutes looked something like a
senior squad. Campbell broke through
to sink two pretty baskets and
Laurie Nicholson added another.
The burst, however, did not last and
toward the close the church squad
began a spurt that left the collegians flat-footed.
With four minutes to go and the
score tied U. B. C. took time out.
The rest seemed to break up the
Varsity morale, and the Excelsiors
ran wild to cinch the contest.
Throughout the fixture the Blue
and Gold squad showed the effect
of the loss of Bob Osborne and Ed
Armstrong, who are on the injured
list, while the absence of Cy Lee,
Wally  Mayers and  Harold  Straight
In a meeting held at noon Tuesday, the Varsity Basketball team unanimously elected Bob Osborne as
captain of the Senior "A" squad for
the present season. Playing his second season for the Canadian Champions, "Tony" was a big reason for
1he Blue and Gold victory over thc
St. Catherines Grads ln the title
series last April.
Prospects of a two game series
with the Oregon State Teachers College is looming following a telegram
received from the Oregon squad
asking for games on January 27-28
or January 29-30. So far no action
has been taken on the campus but
a definite announcement should be
made before the end ot the week.
Varsity—Waimsley, Mclntyre (2),
Wright (6), Root, Nicholson (4),
CampbeU   (7) -19.
Excelsiors—Henderson (2), Garf,
Hunter (1), Leach, Donnelly, March
(8), F. Main (4), A. Main, (9), An-
dren   (4)-28.
In an endeavor to rescue the inter-class soccer competition from
the tender mercies of our so far exceedingly rigorous climatic inclemencies, the Soccer Club has decided
to abandon thc leagues and to substitute a knockout series for thc
Varsity soccer championship and the
Soccer Cup. With nearly seventy per
cent of the league games yet to be
completed and with interest falling
off owing to the increasing number
of postponed games, the above proposal appears to be the only method
of determining the winners of the
Cup before the expiration of the
Sc. '34 hold this handsome trophy
at present, but the Arts representatives prophesy a change of ownership before the end of the knockout
Thc first round draw in the new
knockout series for the Soccer Cup
will be announced in next Tuesday's
issue of the "Ubyssey." Games will
probably  start next Wednesday.
At the University of Washington
the student council is having more
than a little trouble in balancing
its budget for the coming year. It
all centres around the football season, which last fall was not tho ver-
tiable gold mine that it has been in
former seasons. And it is likely that
it will not be for some time to come.
The people of the United States, it
would seem, are losing much of
their admiration for college athletic
heroes. Price reductions for seats in
the games of the Coast conference
next  year  have  been general  .

In another section of the "Ubyssey"
there appears a letter suggesting that
the statements made in the sportorial on intercollegiate sport were at
variance with the facts. We would
like to advise the writer that anything which appeared in the sportorial was either vouched for by
the president of the Alma Mater society or was taken from the financial report of the University of Manitoba Rugby Club as it appeared in
"The Manitoban."

At the University of Oregon in
1926 the student body floated a bond
issue of $150,000 to build a pavilion.
Recently the entire issue was redeemed and the building Is now
clear of debt. Such is the advantage
of a commercialized football team.

University of B. C. is not the only
college to suffer because of scholastic standing. At McGill the senior
hockey squad is now playing without the services of a star forward
because of eligibility  rules.

team on Monday night took the Richmond team to camp to the tune of
29-19 at King Edward Gym, Although
severely handicapped by loss of players through the elegibility rules five
boys took the floor and played clean,
fast basketball aa they had to, being
the only men In stay. These men collected only three personal fouls the
entire game. At the half Turner, a
boy from Kamloops who is showing
lots of go these days, was able to And
the basket often and along with his
team mates ran the score to 14-9 in
their favour. During the second half
the game became much faster and it
was in this half that the three personal fouls were called. Richmond
were In the game all the time and
with a string of substitutes tried to
use them to advantage but failed.
Hope, as usual, played a very fine
game for the losers, accounting for
eight of their points. Ridland played
a very fine game and was In every
play, and Turner usually ionverted
the play into two points. Prior worked
well at centre and was always a great
threat. The guard combination of
Hardwick and Crowder was unbeatable and had much to do with keeping
the score down.
Teams: Hardwick (3) Ridland, (5)
Crowder, (2) Prior, (5) Turner, (14)
—29. Richmond: Mason (6) McCulsh
(3) Tamanito, Morphett, Gilmore

In Hockey Tilt
The Varsity Ice-hockey team will
have a rest from league encounters
this Friday, but meet the Ambassadors at the Arena one week from
tonight at 8:30 p.m.
The Blue and Gold squad beat the
Ambasadors in their last encounter,
and with the additional experience
gained ln competition and practice,
they hope to trim them by an even
larger margin.
Jack Waimsley, well-known in
Vancouver amateur hockey circles,
and a U. B. C. student, has consented to giving his services as assistant coach to the team, and is
working the boys hard trying to
perfect a passing system that will
baffle the opposing defence.
Varsity shares first place honors
with the Maccabees ln the Intermediate League, and stand a very good
chance of winning the top place.
Apart from the League is the Intercollegiate game against the University of Washington, which takes
place sometime in February, so that
the boys have plenty to think about.
The line-up for the Varsity-Ambassadors game one week from today will be: McGregor, Falconer,
Kirby, Ramsden, Goodfellow, Hors-
man, McLeod, Mathews, Carswell,
and Coventry.
