ARTS '29 WINS FRESH
LAURELS IN THE
TRACKJIEET*
Freshies Gain Most Points.
Senior Girls are Outstanding—
Win Relay.
Brilliant weather snd a dlisapolnt-
tag crowd, six new records snd one
record tied, Pat Taylor, Harold McWIlllams and Arts '16 girls wars ths
features ot the Annual Track Meet
bold at Brockton Point on Saturday.
Arts '29 walked away with another
victory* The impudence of these
Freshmen is something terrible. Reo-
ords were broken in the 440, 880, mile,
three-mile, and 880 relay, while some
pretty work was done in tbe weight
events by Whltworth and Pradollnl.
Arte '27 again played second fiddle
to the wearers of the green; Arts '28
took third place, with Science 'i.8-'29
fourth, and Science '26-'27 fifth, Agriculture sixth, and the illustrious seniors breaking all records by falling to
annex a single point.
The affair was run off with credit
to the traok officials, and all considered was one ot the most successful
events ever staged at the spring meet.
Dr. Sedgwick, Dr. Boggs, and Dr. Let-
son officiated as judges.
In the women's events, Arts '26 reversed the standing of the masculine
members ot that year, b" running
away with the championship, with
Arts '28, Arts '27, and Arts '29 finishing In the order named. Doris Woods
was the star In the women's class.

ANTHONY ASQU1TH ACTS
AS DEBATE CHAIRMAN
University of Southern California,
March 9th (P.I.P.) Anthony Asqulth,
son of the former prime minister of
Great Britain and a graduate of Oxford acted aa chairman for the Inter-
sectional debate won by the University of British Columbia.
He expressed great admiration for
athletics In this country, especially
for the resultant physical develop
ment. American girls, he thought,
were a bit "freer" In their manner
than English girls, and "certainly better dressed,"
Probably the most unique difference
found by Mr, Asqulth was In the
scholastic methods of the two countries. He seemed surprised at the
intensity and variety of courses on
the local curriculum, and felt that the
work waa much harder than on his
own campua.
Large Audiences Vote 'Pygmalion"
the Best Production Ever Put On
by the University Players' Club
isobel Barton gives splendid interpretation of Elisa—Supported
by very able and talented cast.   Costumes, lighting effects
and scenery all that could be desired.
"Pygmalion," the eleventh annual Spring production of the University
Players Club, is the best they have put on for many years. Bernard Shaw is
always good, but this play seems to be about the high water mark of his
efforts. The flavor of Shavian wit and epigram has, in this instance, been
seasoned somewhat by the fact that the subject matter of the play Is as Interesting as the language ot it. The play deals with the old Pygmalion Idea
of the eternal conflict between science and emotion. Take the personal element out ot things, and—but you can't do it. Like last year's play, "Pygmalion" depends for a large portion of its success upon the introduction of profanity, but unlike Philip Barry, the author does not fizzle the Job. The play
itself, has already been adequately dealt with otherwise in the local press,
except for one thing, namely, that the onding of the play has beon very much
emended, by somebody, and one suspects here the fine hand of our own
Professor Wood. But, as is unusual with emendations, the change has undoubtedly been for the better.
Isobel Barton Outstanding
Isobel Barton took the leading role,
and filled not with capability, but with
genius. She had an exceedingly difficult part to play, that of the synthetic changeling, which was really
not one character, but a varying blending of two characters. Her performance was, in fact, so good that it
dwarfed those of other members of
the cast, whose renderings, It given
in other years, would have stood out.
Peter Price, the leading man, was
adequate. As Prof. Henry Hlgglns,
his natural tendencies stood him In
rood stead, but though a good actor,
he fell considerably below Miss Barton.
Reallatlo Qarbageman
D'Arcy Marsh, took the part ot
Alfred Doollttle. If D'Arcy doesn't
stop taking these parts In which he
represents a man of "peculiar" morals,
he will soon be suffering from a
sprained reputation. D'Arcy know his
stuff, and aside from his innate Inclination to perlpateticlstr., he made an exceedingly realistic garbageman.
Freddy Eynaford-Hlll was portrayed by Wllloughby Matthews. Mr.
Matthews has also sacrificed his good
name on the altar of "drawma," for
nobody having seen his interpretation of the chawmlng Freddy, will believe that Wllloughby is above the
Bluet ago of twelve without positive
proof.
Harry Warren, Rhodes-Scholar, etc.,
took the part of Colonel Pickering,
Somehow or other we felt rather
dissatisfied with Mr. Warren's performance. There was nothing one
could place a linger on; good acting,
clear enunciation, excellent gestures,
but somehow It seemed the same
Harry Warren as In "You and I." Possibly we were prejudiced.
Minor Roles Well Done
Honor Kldd, as Mrs. Pearce, handled
a very difficult part with apparent
ease, while Gwen Musgrave, as the
mother, showed Just the correct degree of "unbendlness." Grace Hope
(Mrs. Eynsford-HUl) and Avis Pumphrey (Clara) had studied their respective characters with the result
that they fitted their parts to the life.
Les. Howlott, Bill Gough, and Doris
Crompton hud not very much to do tn
their respective parts, but they did
that little well, The orchestra was
good when the audience gave It a
chalice, tho lighting effects were exceedingly woll-tlmed, and the scenery
was (ihlftod promptly. In fact, If anyone Is dissatisfied with this year's
play, he Is wasted here. He should
be president of tho International Association of Pessimists, for In the
above write-up we havo beon picking
every fault we could find, and regret
to report that wo can't find any more,
To say how good tho play was, we
would havo lo use tho celebrated adjective rhyming with "muddy."

NATIONAL UNION OF
STUDENTS UPHELD
BY DEBATERS
R. Nunn-May and T. P. MacDonald
Outline Proposal (o Student
Executives
University circles are busy discussing the formation of a National
Union of Students, In Canada as a result of the visit of the Imperial Debating team. Messrs. R. Nunn-May
and T. P. Macdonald have already
discussed the proposal with the stu
dent executives and will shortly bring
It before the Students' Council and the
student body.
The National Union of Students 13
an active and flourishing organization
in Great Britain. It provides a representative student association for
the discussion of university affairs in
general, and a means of maintaining
close contact with undergraduate
bodies throughout the country. In
addition, the Union conducts a tourist organization, a bureau of information and  a magazine.    The  National
nion of Students is responsible for
ilie tour of the Imperial debating
team through Canada, Australia, New
Zealand  and   South   Africa.
The chief factor in the organization
of the N.U.S. is the Stud.'ills' Council,
(insisting' of representatives of all
ihe universities in England, Scotland
and Wales. The number of delegates
sent is determined by the size of the
university that  sends them.
Under the Council Is an extension
ihat Is composed of one representative from each University. This body
meets twice a year in addition to
their attendance at. the Council meeting.
A permanent staff Is employed in
the central office in London, consisting of secretaries nnd the usual office
officials.
In addition there are honorary members, consisting of prominent men
Interested In student affairs.
Affiliated with the N.U.S. is the
International Federation of Students,
which Is a union of the Students'
Union In more than 32 countries.
It. Is proposed hy the Imperial Debaters to create a National Union of
students In Canada along similar
lines. Although the chief Canadian
colleges are in favor of the proposal,
the difficulties of distance, transportation nnd llnnnce can only bo overcome by a great effort of the students
of tho  Dominion.
ELECTION NEWS
There Is going to be competition

MAJOR DEBATE OF
YEAR TO-NIGHT
U.B.C. Debaters Hope to
Defeat Formidable
Opponents
Tonight's the night! At 8:15 tbe
defenders of the prestige ot the U.B.C.
will sally forth to do battle with the
pick of the British Isles. For months
James Craig, Ralph Stedman and Bus-
umu Kobe have discussed over and
over again every possible aspeot of
Western Clvilsatlon, and have now
made their last preparations for the
fray. Calm and confident, Messrs.
Paul Reid, R. Nunn May, A. H. R.
Molson and T. P. Macdonald, have returned from Victoria and are awaiting
the onslaught ot the last hopes of the
Canadian universities.
The Imperial Debate will pass into
history, for better or for worse, in a
few hours. It our debaters succeed
In winning the verdict of the Judges,
Mr. MacMlllan, Justice McDonald, and
Rev. Brown, of Ryerson College, they
will raise the University to the proud
ranks ot those few institutions which
have succeeded in overcoming the Invaders. It they lorn they will have
the gratifying knowledge of having
done their host and at least will be
In good company among the many
splendid teams that hare gone down
to defeat against these opponents.
The Imperial team is undoubtedly
the most distinguished assembly of
debaters that has ever tourod the Dominion; as well as their forensic accomplishments, they hold prominent
positions in British student circles.
Mr. Molson Is an ex-president ot the
Oxford Union, and was a member of
the British universities team that
toured South Africa in 1926. Mr. Paul
Reid is a flrBt-class journalist, and
Mr. Nunn May has the distinction of
being the president of the National
Union of Students in England, the
body responsible for the present tour.
Mr. McDonald Is treasurer of the
International Confederation of Students, an affiliated organization that
embraces Students' Unions In nearly
all the important countries of Burope.
Messrs. James Craig, Susumu Kobe
and Ralph Stedman are too well-
known In University circles to require
an enumeration of their achievements. J. Craig and S. Kobe will be
remembered especially by those who
attended the Oxford debate last year.
The subject of the debate la, "Resolved, That Western Civilization Is
Becoming a Degenerating Influence to
Mankind,'' This Is a queation that all
students havo thought and discussed
ainiiig themselves. Anyone who
knows anything ol history, has already asked himself, "What will tho
people of the future think of the present age with its science, wealth, hurry
and jazz?" Here Is an opportunity of
hearing an enthralling discussion of
this problem.
The Imperial Debate will take place
"TONIGHT" In Wesley Church, at
8:15 o'clock. Tickets, while they last,
can be obtained, both at the U.B.C.
and the Georgia Pharmacy.

During my period of editorship It
has always been at the back of my

are. It Is the duty of everyone connected with student affairs to do the

this requisition, nnd, as something In

Win over Saints
(6) Varsity....13   6   6   2   26-38   11.
Tho above Indicates the position of
Varsity In the Pacific Coast League
standing. Points number eleven sod
twelve came as the result of a thrill*
ing 8-2 victory over the hooped St
Andrews squad on Saturday last. In*
cidentally, Varsity and the Saints reversed positions in the table as a result of the win.
Varsity netted two goals in the first
stanza through Yip, who excelled
himself, and Cameron, who was again
a naughty little fellow, muchly Inclined to be in the wrong place st the
right time. Rex should study playing
his position more.
One of the largest crowds of the
season turned out, attracted by the
splendid weather, the desire to get a
glimpse of the resuscitated Saints,
and a knowledge that these two old
rivals always turn in an exhibition
worth watching. The Saints were
well received, and the genera! opinion
seem to be that with a little time to
settle down the famous old Scotsmen
will have something like their old brilliance. One of the new faces In the
Thistles' line-up was that of Len Ad-
dlnall, who lately was playing against
Varsity JunlorB, in a blue shirt of
South Hill. The youngster fitted in
well, and was one of the most effective men on the Saints line-up.
YIp Again Prominent.
Almost at the outset Crute laid a
perfect ball In the goalmouth. Ad-
dlnall dropped two over to Yip who
lobbed one at Currle. YIp next turned
the ball over to Cameron but the outside right was out of position, a fault
he had much of the afternoon. Baker
booted the leather far upfleld, Yip
setting out In hot pursuit of Dick Williams to effect a corner. Wilkinson
kicked a beautiful drive at the inside
of the post Currle making a spectacular save. Nichol dropped a couple of
shots over the bar.
After a half hour Wilkinson hit the
cross bar with a stinging shot, Cameron booted the rebound Into a heap
and Yip sent it through for the opening score. Following another period
of mldfield play In which honors were
livlded Rex Cameron made a first
time shot to put the Students two up.
Goal—But Offside.
Early after the cross-over Cameron,
and Crees played the ball to
Wilkinson who tapped It in but. tin-
last named was offside. Wilkinson
missed a cross from Cameron in front
of Currle. Both goal areas were attacked In turn with the Saints having
a little the best of it. Half way
through, Nichol went through to score
after Gibbard had blocked the oncoming Crute. Gibbard was clearly In
error In taking the ball. Varsity was
outlucked when Yip's terrific shot
grazed the cross-bar. Fifteen minutes
the Saints' supporters took a new
lease of life when Nlohol netted a
beauty from thirty yards out, Mosher
being well beaten. Shortly before the
llnlth Yip, Cameron, Crees and Wilkinson figured In the closing goal,
Wilkinson doing -he trick. It was one
of the best combination plays of the
day.
Referee Allan was in charge and
handled the game well.
Varsity on the whole showed better
than they have for the past few
games, their finishing, the weak point
last week, being especially good. The
collegians had speed to burn and had
i heir clever opponents on edge several
times due to their fast sprinting and
accurate long passing.

THE OLD ORDER CHANGETH
Election time at any UnivurHity is ono of surprises, broken
friendships, and sudden allianeoH. It is a period of unrost and uncertainty. Whichever way a person moves, ho is almost sure to Htep
on the toos of someone ho likes and admires. But hero let us at any
rate congratulate our Varsity politicians in taking a more common
sense attitude towards the elections this session. "lis whispered
around our learned halls that the pendulum has swung onco again
in the direction of plain speaking and frank understanding. In a
word, we are again becoming naive.
In former years it has been customary for « number of students
to approach a likely person and suggest that he run for a oertain
office. With many modest protestations he tells them how unqualified
he really is and how he has never thought of it before; whereas, in
all likelihood, he has been "buttering the wheels" for that particular
office for a few months at least. Invariably he ends up by saying, in
a hesitating voice, that perhaps he may have a try for it. The more
he thinks of it the more certain he is that he is the very man. So, to
cap it all, he waxes assertive and in a determined, deliberate tone,
with an attitude not unlike that of a hero beset with heavy odds, ho
declares that he will do his duty for his Alma Mater.
This year, however, the tendency in general (so our office bird
informs us) is for a man to come right out and say what office he
thinks he is fitted for. By this method, then, in a very short time,
he is able to see whether he has the support and confidence of a
representative number of students. Everyone knows what the other
man is doing. Everyone knows what he is up against. Although
this may appear rather brazen to some who have a false conception
of true modesty, the end should justify the means j as it is only by
having the cards face up that the game may be played to the best
advantage.
GRADUATING CLASS DRAWS
Is the graduating class of this year goin# to break tradition,
and create a precedent; which, to say the least, will be looked on
with disfavor In other words is Arts '26 going to have a draw for
its graduating functions? The decision of this question is important,
and here are a few of the points to be considered.
It is maintained that a class draw gets everybody out to the
particular function. This may be the case in flrst year, but it seems
unnecessary for the last year. By that time the majority of the
students have made their friends, and a class draw would only spoil
their last Varsity dances. As for the few girls who have not made
any friends in their own year, surely the men of their class would
see that they are properly looked after.
If the class decides in favor of a class draw they are simply
admitting that the men in their class arc not good sportsmen enough
and not gentlemen enough to look nl'fer the women of their year.
There is no such class in Varsity at prescnl.
Past gividiiatiiiir years have managed very nicely without a
draw. Tn these, uf which wc know, ihe men lia\c ^ut tngetliei' and
arranged for the girls aiming I hem. Antl everyone has hail a good
time.
Another point to he considered is this: the banijui't is practically the only function for which a draw would seem to he possible
Quite frankly, how many students would be willing to trust to luck
for their partner for a banquet?
However, the class should do what the majority of its members
want. For that reason we urge that the voting on the question
be by secret ballot; and that each member vote for what he. himself, prefers. Only in that way will the wish of the majority be
known.

the Dally.
University of Idaho—(P.I.P.A.)—
Swimming may become an Intramural

Featuring Further
Literary Discoveries
Since the feature staff made public
the results of Its epoch-making discoveries in the realm of poetry, the
office mail-box has been stuffed full
of a couple of letters begging us to
direct our efforts Into other channels
and benefit tho civilized world by taking up work In different fields. We,
therefore, turned our attention to Investigating certain recent works In
prose, and the results have been most
gratifying, especially In regard to certain classic works, which have never
hefore been really appreciated. The
following volumes have been placed
on the English 1.3 Reference Shelf.
Telephone Ifook: Tlii' many characters appearing In thl.-; monumental
work have heen skilfully handled In
such manner that they appear always
in a logical sequence. Interest haa
heen added to tho book by giving It
a local setting, which very faithfully
depicts the topography of tho lower
mainland of British Columbia. In a
certain sense, It is a practical guide
In everyday life, which should be in
every homo; and, while proving its
worth to the more mature, la of especial value to young people and may,
Indeed, bo safely recommended for
children.
Dictionary—This work is admittedly prosy, and somewhat weak In plot,
being more episodic than otherwise.
Its chief merit lies In an amazing and
admirable command of the resources
of the English language, It Is, In this
connection, both exhausting and exhaustive.
Hansard- This, we whole-heartedly
condemn. The speeches are long and
wearisome, nnd dogenerato often Into
mere verbiage. We cannot rofraln
from un apt -(notation'.
"Words are like leaves and where they
most abound,
Much fruit of sense Is seldom found."
University     Calendar This    small
volume makes a potent appeal to it
restricted circle of those discriminating renders who can appreciate It at
lis true value.

CHESS-PAWN OUR
HONOUR
Varsity's Inter-colleglate chess team
wiih defeated on February 22 liy tho
crack aggregation of Roan's Coll Itch
(Ontario) In ono of the most thrilling
games on record. Details aro given In
full In tho latest copy of tho "Bean's
Kernel," which has Just arrived. Tho
report runs us follows: (P.A.P.A.)
"Wading Through Sea ot Blood, Chess
Team Wins; 16 Are Injured.
"Through a son of blood tho Chess
ten in of Bean's Collleh, last night, defeated a combined army of chess
hounds from the U.B.C. In a clash at
the Oeorge Richardson Stadium that
lusted full sixteen hours. Noao Borrle,
president of the Bean's victors, received serious injuries ut the eighth
square, Sixteen other men sustained
Injuries varying tn nature.
The games were hot and contested
with vigor and fire. At the sixteenth
hour the game was declared a draw;
but It was decided that, since the
Bean's men had received fewer injuries than those on the opposite side,
they should be presented with the
prized silver-plated can-opener, in addition to a special crest award consisting of hand-chiselled bricks.
"At the fifteenth hour the final
score stood as follows: Beans—000,*
000.000,000,000;  U.B.C—0."
The U.B.C. team has returned in
high spirits, and are eager for another
struggle with such formidable opponents. The National Union of Students,
when it comes into being, will be sure
to send the team East in the fall,
William McMoron and Sammy Oek-
lskl, by then, will be added to tbe
team, as they will have recovered
from sprained cerebrums they both received in their last games.
LOVES LABOUR'S LOST
I stopped and gazed entranced at
the lovely face—eyes, deep violet,
shone from under a delicate fringe of
wide-sweeping lashes; hair, a gleaming golden net that meshed and held
the sunlight; cheeks, two lilies
uteeped in red wine; a mouth, like a
ruby bow, parted over perfect teeth.
I gazed until the bill-poster pasted
"Chesterfield Cheroots—They Stupefy," over tho ad about soap and a
school-girl complexion.

THE SHINE OF WESTERN
MOONS
By P.I.P.
Old man Carson und the Vigilante
were retracing their steps along the
trull from Dead Mnn's (lulch. They
had travellod for hours, but still
urged their weary mounts forward
with tho pitiless determination of a
rugby coach,
"Hurry, oh, hurry!" oxolalroed the
rancher for the four hundred and
Hlvty-thlrd tlmo. The Vigilante, well-
sousoticd with professional Jokes
through a repeated college year,
merely grunted, "We got to be careful," he muttered at last, "The trail's
dangerous."
'Til risk It," said Carson In the
spirit of a freshman taking two
pieces of cafeteria pie, as he urged
his steed onward,
Thu way had narrowed until there
was scarcely foothold for a goat or
a member of the outdoors club. Suddenly Carson brought his horse to
a dead halt. Across the path was a
sign which had the solemn warning, "Detour."
"Hurry," he said, "we'll keep on."
"I'm sorry," replied the Vigilante
sternly, "but the law must be obeyed.
I must do my duty, no matter how
unpleasant the task. I'm a vigilante."
"But this is the trail," snapped Carson, impatiently, "I don't have to say
'show me the way to go home' to
know that."
The Vigilante tapped the butts of
his six-shooters in silence. A man
who had overcome desperate nicotine
fiends was not to be disobeyed. The
rancher reluctantly followed the officer back along the trail until they
came to a branch to the left. "Hurry,
oh, hurry!" cried the rancher for the
four hundred and sixty-fourth time,
us they set out along the new path.
* * •
The sun was high In the heavens
when Rodolph Speedy, his horse covered with foam reined up abruptly, as
he perceived the sign. For a moment he paused undecided, then remembered how he had driven hla
Ford bug In British Columbia. "Probably only a trick of Rattlesnake
Ike's," he said to himself as his steed
cleared the obstruction and sped
along the trail.
At last he descended Into tho valley and could discern the struggling
buildings of the H bar L ranch In
the distance. All need for caution
was now paHt, and Rodolph Speedy
covered the remaining miles at a
thundering gallop. Soon he was at
the porch of the ranch house. He
dismounted and flung the door wide.
A figure sprang upon him. "Rudy,
yi'il have come at lust," he heard in
the sweet   voice of Dora  ('arson.
"Ill,rii," ho UiiHpeil, "yuii arc iatV
What has happened?" "Where's
t'ni her'.'"   she  asked  anxiously.
"lie escaped from the bandits," answered Kodolph Speedy. "He's safe.
I suppose. Hut whore's Rattlesnake,
Ike?"

RULES FOR SAFETY OF
PEDESTRIANS ON
THE CAMPUS
1. When crossing, raise handa above
heud, palms out, lingers extended and
joined to show motorist that you are
helpless and unarmed, and are throwing yourself on his morcy. If he still
pursues you, leap to one side, but keep
arms upraised, as this makes it easier
for undertaker to remove eoat.
2. Walk across the street as if you
did not see the car. This is less likely
to antagonise the driver.
3. Carry a quantity of tacks about
your person; If a motorist runs you
down, he will not repeat the offense.
4. Do not cross the street.
—Adapted.

She blushed shyly. "He tried to
kidnap me, and I had to hit him with
a flat iron," she gently whispered,
"he's in the outhouse."
"My hero!" Rodolph and Dora exclaimed in one voice.
They turned toward the door at
the sound of footsteps. "Father!"
cried Dora in rapture, as Carson aad
the Vigilante staggered Into the room.
Rodolph Speedy gave a skyrocket
for sheer joy.
Old man Carson embraced his
daughter and then grasped Rodolph
Speedy by tbe hand. He smiled sadly as ho glanced at the Vigilante.
"It's all right," whispered our hero.
"You smashed the still and the bandits drank the rest of the evidence.
None of them have died or have
been struck blind, so there is nothing
to show that there was moonshine in
the cellar."
The tenderfoot took Dora by the
arm. "Show me Rattlesnake Ike-
dearest," he said proudly. She led
the party to the outhouse where Rattlesnake Ike lay with his head band-
Curses," hissed the foreman, "I
agree with tho professor of English.
Too many happy ending. I'm goln'
to the Cannibal Islands."
The Vigilante stepped forward with
a white ticket In his hand. "Rattle-
snke Ike, I arrest you for attempted
murder. I am the man who shot you
In the wrist when you were aiming
at Carson's silhouette."
Two ftguroa sat on the doorstep of
the cold ranch house. "Dora," murmured Rodolph at last, "Will you
marry me?" "I am only a poor
ranch girl," whispered Dora In reply,
"Perhaps you would prefer a bluestocking, as you are a big college
man."
"Never!" cried Rodolph Speedy,
and they embraced 'neath the shine
of  Western moons!

certainly Is a lower standard than
was apparent four years ago. This
year has been singularly poor as far
as atheletlc achievements go. For
years we held the Provincial Rugby
championship. We once had the
Mainland Cup. Our Rugby men used
to make a clean sweep of the trophies. Our soccerltes Jumped to the
flrst division aud the Mainland championship in two seasons. Wo once
actually hud tho Provincial Hockey
championship. Track was a major
nport In actuality. Our basketball
learns were working up to the form
that crowned their efforts last year
Our boxing club and swimming club
wore In the bud, and fast dowering.
Our tennis tournament attracted spectators from the whole city.
Causes for Present State of Athletic
Deosdenee
When we look at this year's record,
the above looks like an elegy, Well,
it is easy to slam. Bui tar removed
from slamming, Is to enquire Into the
present state of decadence, for our
decline In ambition has been maul-
tested in many other ways, such as
negligible attendance at games, or
failure to plant trees on the boulevards. Well, then, to polut this out
Is neither a work of geuiUB or of
merit. To examine the reason should
be both.
My contention Is that there are
two chief reasons for our lowered
moral standard (not used in a derogatory sense). In the first place, following the law of action and reaction,
it is not strange that we should be
less active after our early years of
campaign achievement. In the second, and I think more essential, students have turned their minds elsewhere.
To bring the erring sheep back to
the fold, is uot, I think, a matter
for propaganda. It is rather essential that students gee the point clearly, understand what college tradition
means, and then it can be left to the
intelligence of the undergraduate to
right the matter. I have confidence
enough In the basic good of human
nature and on the level of intelligence in college students to support
me In this.
The Days That Are No More
Our minds have been turned to
other things. Time was when a
University half our size could turn
out teams that gave us the reputation
we now hold. They did not breed
supermen In those days. Those men,
1 am inclined to think, were, if anything, somewhat Inferior to our present undergraduates lu athletic ability. But there was fight, and there
was interest. Men availed themselves of their Wednesday afternoons
to practice, students of their Saturday afternoons to watch their gladiators in action. This is what is lacking to-day. What University teams
lack is practice. Rooting is all O.K.
In its place, but rooting never made
athletes. I shall have something to
say  on   this   later.
Need of Practice
I realize that the dominant need
first Is a place to practice. That will
come, and would come quicker if
more interest were shown. And if we
expect our studeuta to watch us, we
must let them see something worth
watching. The team that doesn't
practice is not worth watching long.
The student lu an executive office
who does not do his best for the body
he represents, the player In the same
position, the student who shows a
lack of interest in the affairs of his
Alma Mater, all are in the same category. If we are to succeed we must
apply ourselves. The impetus is
lacking.    We must get at the root.
A credit system would get at the
root. The student who works for
his Alma Mater should be credited
with it in some other way than on
decoration day. I deny that this is
In contradiction to the principles of
good sportsmanship. Good sportsmanship argues a square deal. To expect
a man to do two things at once is
not giving him a square deal. Tho
game for the game's sake does not
mean that It Is wrong to glvo a man
an opportunity to play the game
Sentiment must not be confused with
sportsmanship,
Sport Worthy of Recognition
To do two things at once, . , Then
you would placo spoit on a level with
scholasticism? By no means. But
I would recognise sport as a fundamental attribute to college life, Sport
Is worthy; sport Is recognised as an
essentia! tn manhood by such Institutions as the Rhodes Scholarship
Tru«t; and If sport Is worthy and necessary to the development of Ihe
Ideal student, what is there unsport-
manllkn, what Is there contrary to
the Ideals of scholasticism, In recognising it as a part of university life?
So long as sport Is unrecognized In
crediting a man's course, sport Is
automatically  frowned   upon.    I   am
making my remarks on this phase of
sport, but would by no means confine myself to this; It Is more appropriate that this side be discussed on
this page, and especially since sport
would be the first (o be frowned upon
In considering a credit system.
To frown upon college activity ceil-
inlnly appears, In my estimation to
llHcourage college split. Consequently, I see no reason why there should
be conscientious objectors, unless
we  object  to  college  spirit  In  Itself.
Proposed  System  for  Credits
This would be my plan: three units
credit for major olllres In student
government; two units credit for
offices ot sub-minor Importance, for
major sports, and for editorial positions other than that of editor-in-
chief, or such offices as would be
drafted by an intelligent committee.
One unit credit for all other offices
requiring a reasonable amount of time
and ability, for reporters, and for all
other men on Varsity teams. This
list does not propose to be specific
or exhaustive. It would be the work
of a competent committee to draw
up a proper chart. But it gives the
idea.
I would limit the amount of credit
given to three units, though I would
not prohibit a man's participating in
events entitling him to more. In
this way we would draw more men
out to the teams; there would be
more competition for places, for It
would not handicap a man to play.
In consequence, we would raise the
standard of our teams. We could insist on men turning out to practice
If they were credited for so doing,
ft ought to be a matter of honour,
you say, to practice. Maybe, but
what about the honour on the other
side of the slate? In this way, I
feel we would attain a higher degree
of excellence In all University activities, and the real meaning of college spirit is the degree of excellence
of our Institutions.
Recognition Does Not Take Away
"Gameness"
The big objection would be that
you are taking the "gameness" out
of the game by placing It on a practical basis. This I frankly fall to
comprehend. If, ns 1 said, It Is unsportsmanlike to be fair, what, then
is sportsmanship? You by no means
lessen a man's love for his work
by   recognizing   his  achievements.
For these reasons, Ihen, I would
urge the adoption of a credit system
as the means of restoring college
spirit. This Is, I admit, no guarantee
that we would wipe up all opposition.
Who ?ares about that? But the plan
would assure us that we are recognizing the work that is being done, and
doing so In a manner that Is at once
sane and sportsmanlike, and in keeping willi colleglnte Ideals. What further qualification   is  necessary?

On Hat unlay at Heather Park a
quaint collection of soccer antiques
were observed In feeble contest with
a team of players wearing the Hotel
Vancouver emblem. As the greybeards referred to aro University students, a short description of their
doleful antics Is here appended.
There were but seven regulars able
to play and a certain John Llcrsch
took It upon himself to (1)1 up the vacancies with whomever he could lay
his hands on, Varsity fielded ten so-
called players, The opposing eleven
started off briskly and soon worried
"Fda" and the two old men he keeps
In front of him. On tho other hand,
whenever the Varsity forwards
chanced to go too far beyond the centre line, the ball would suddenly depart from them, leaving nothing in
front of them except all the opposition's defense.
Hotel Vancouver scored their first
goal after fifteen minutes of play
when Mr. Mcintosh shot a good goal.
Almost Immediately after half time
their centre, Dickenson, made it 2-0.
Just before the end the same player
registered 3-0 when the Varsity left
back pot In the way of a free shot,
thus giving "Flea" no chance to visualize the approaching object. For
U. B. C, Swanson, Sutherland and
Dynes showed up well while Hotel
Vancouver were best served by Dickenson, Rennle and Mcintosh. The
Varsity team was: Sutherland; Dynes
and D. Warden; Swanson, Miller, and
Uegg; Duffel, T. Warden, Evans, and
Splllsbury.
