They Came To Conquer
League Must Take
Definite Stand,
He States
The chief factors preventing the return of international confidence and
the recovery of the world, according
to Professor F, H. Howard, Vancouver
Institute speaker in the University auditorium on Saturday night, are the
policies ot three nations, Germany,
Italy, and Japan.
'These nations are all over-populated
with few territorial possessions to absorb the surplus; all are ruled by
small groups not responsible to the
people; and all instituting increased
armament programmes.
"Although there are signs ef surface Improvement and some of the
causes of the depression have dtsap-
pearM, the economic position of the
world Is far from good," Professor Soward stated.
"Although • few countries may
achieve a temporary recovery," he
said, "there can be no lasting recovi
wry unless it Is universal, and to have
universal recovery there must be universal confidence."
Germany, he said, Is the chief cause
of distrust, mainly because of Nazi
militaristic policy. During the past
few years she has given the world
■ three greet slteeks.
The first came when Germany an-
nounced her intention to quit the
League of Nations, "so as to be free of
international obligations". This step
''was taken because secret rearmament
of the nation could no longer be concealed.
The second was the murder of the
Austrian chancellor. All the bordering states were startled into closer
friendship and Mussolini shifted his
alliance to England and France.
In answer, Germany declared her
intention to disregard all arms restrictions.
According to Professor Soward there
are four possibilities of danger from
(Germany: Occupation Of the west
bank of the Rhine; occupation of
Memel, the Lithuanian port; absorption of Austria, a plan much feared
by the neighboring states; or an increase of military preparations.
"Germany Is not ready for war," he
said, "and does not need to be feared
for at least two years. Those two
years are the tune the League has to
consolidate Its position. But Italy's
policy in Ethiopia has seriously complicated the situation, and she must be
stopped If the League is to continue."
In giving reasons why Italy should
be stopped he pointed out that although she spoke frequently of an increase of six hundred thousand a year
in population she was doing nothing
about it. Rather she was encouraging
large families.

From U.B.C: Social Credit Defeated
"The University of British Colum
bia is the nearest thing I've ever seen
to ah American college In Canada,"
stated Sidney Hermant, in an interview given to the Ubyssey at the Tea
Dance Saturday afternoon.
Questioned regarding co-eds at
U.B.C. in comparison to those at the
University of Tpronto, he said: "I've
never seen so many beautiful girls in
one place before. They don't have
tea dances at Toronto, and in fact
you do a lot of things we don't."
At this point Eli Kelloway, McGill
representative on the debating team,
interrupted to say that tea dances
are held at McGill, and that they are
often sponsored by the S.C.M.
Hermant continued to give his impressions of our campus and spent a
few moments "running down" the
Pep Club. "In my opinion," he said,
"your Pep Club is a useless organization. The 1200 that were at the pep
meet Friday weren't there, as a manifestation of college spirit but to see
a good show."
"It is surprising to me," Hermant
continued, "to see you running your
own activities, At Toronto we hire
people to do a lot of organization. If
we had a tea ciance we wouldn't think
of running it ourselves as you are today."
Speaking of the Ubyssey the visiting debaters were enthusiastic in their
approval. "It is a lot better than the
Toronto 'Varsity,' both in content and
make-up," remarked Hermant.
Both of the visitors mentioned the
fact that they had been made to feel
at home in Vancouver. "People are
a lot easier to meet here," stated Kelloway.
The touring debaters will spent tomorrow on the campus before leaving
for the East.
With the laying of a wreath at the
memorial plaque in the science building at 11 o'clock yesterday by Chas.
W. Tysoe, president, members of the
196th W. U. Battalion association, together with friends and relatives,
honored   their  fallen  comrades.
"I am sure that they would have us
remember them as the living—as they
were in training days in Canada and
on the march to the front in France,
in all their lightheadedness of glorious youth," said J. P. G. McLeod,
196tht veteran, as he recalled experiences of war days. "We are not here
to glorify war; but the sacrifice of
our young men was not in vain," he
stated. "They hid their real purpose
behind a veil of joyousness. I do not
think that they would have us particularly sad but rather of the same
spirit with which .they gave their

Unanimous Decision Over
McKillop, Fulton
Judges Say U.B.C. Debaters
Failed to Explain Soebl
Credit Ideas
The McGill-Toronto debating team,
Eli Kelloway and Sidney Hermant,
won a unanimous judges' decision
over U. B. C, when it supported the
negative of the resolution: "That this
house desires a Federal Social Credit
Government for Canada" in the University Auditorium Friday night.
Lex McKillop opened the case for
the affirmative with a discussion of
the evils of the capitalistic system. He
reviewed the familiar picture of
thousands starving in a land of plenty, and concluded that a change was
need without delay.
"Everyone of us has been brought
up on the principles or rather lack of
principles of capitalism," he said.
"Social Credit, though diametrically
opposed to capitalism, proposes to use
many of the existing institutions and
developments of the old system."
"The purchasing power of Canada
should be based upon the resources
of the country, and upon the ability
of the people to produce and consume. Social Credit proposes that the
credit of the country shall be based
on more than mere gold. The ordinary member of society contributes to
the good of that society and should
be given the power of purchasing
what he has produced."
Discussing the mechanization of industry, McKillop stated that Social
Credit would use the machines for
the good of society, that the principle-
of "machine controlling man" would
be reversed.
"To use a term of Mr.   Bennett's,

Ticket Sales Soar;
200 Mark Passed
In Three Days
Now an assured financial sucecss,
the Arts-Aggi* Ball, say the executives of the two Undergraduate Societies, will also be a scintillating social achievement as its shock troops
of entertainment and syncopation
swing into action Thursday night at
the Commodore Ballroom.
Haying disposed of far more than
their budgetted 200 tickets, the limit
of 300 is in tight after only three
days of sale, states Treasurer Hetherington.
The small remainder, composed of
superfluous ducats returned by the
Presidents of the Aggies and the
Teachers, will be disposed of at the
Auditorium Box Office at noon-hours
on Tuesday and the following two
days, as long as they last. There
will be NO sale at the door Thursday
night, state the committee.
The promised four act floor show
has been increased to five, in view
of the excellent financial returns, and
an additional amount has been placed
at the disposal of the decoration committee, headed by Kay Bourne.
Three professional dancing turns, a
banjo artist and a radio singer will
be ort the card.
"We are immensely pleased at the
success of the ball," caroled Arts and
Aggie Presidents Morley and Allen
in chorus, when approached by a
"Ubyssey" reporter. "It just goes to
show that Varsity is coming to life,
and that at last we are all beginning
to pull together. Both of our Faculties, and the Women and the Sciencemen have contributed time and
brains to put this over, and it has
justified the effort!"
History reveals that this is the first
time in nine years that the Ball has
paid its own way, and that the "No
Credit, No Reservations" policy of the
ticket committee is almost unique in
Varsiy records—but it seems to have
been justified by results.
"Last year many of %the senior class
complained about the engraving of
the Year Book. Fef of them, however, bothered to think why the engraving was not perfect. The fault
was not the editors' nor the engravers'. It was all due to lack of time,"
states Margaret Ecker, editor of the
Totem this year,
The seniors were late in getting
their pictures taken and so the engraving had to be hurried up in order to publish the annual before the
spring exams. This year, in order to
remedy that fault, the Totem staff
hopes to get all pictures taken before Christmas she says. This can not
be done without the full co-operation
of the graduating class and so far
they have failed to co-operate.
If the seniors want a good annual
it is up to them to help the statf.
Swedish Educationist Likes
Adult Education Scheme
"I find that the educational extension service which is offered in this
country is unique, and that in it are
incorporated some of the best means
of spreading adult education amongst
the masses of the people," said Dr. L.
O. Olsson, prominent Swedish educationist, in a short interview following f. luncheon in the Faculty dining room Saturday noon.
Dr. Olsson, acknowledged founder
of the Study Circle movement in
Sweden, is thc representative of Sweden on the World Association for
Adult Education and the chief of thc
International Order of Good Templars. Under the auspices of the American AssoHntwni of Adult education,  he  is  '•■ ■'Vni a  survey  of the
American continent. In Canada he
has visited educational centres in Alberta, Manitoba and Saskatchewan, as
well as British Columbia, and in these
provinces he finds a high standard
of Adult Education.
Over the week-end Dr. Olsson addressed meetings of the Good Templars and a C.C.F. organization. Saturday morning he addressed a closed
conference of educationists in the
board-room in the Administration
building when, speaking on Swedish
Adult Education, he told the gathering of the development of tho movement and how thc idea ef Study Circles had been adopted by many organizations in Sweden for the purpose of awakening the people to cultural activities.
Alumni Day
Is Great Success
H. R. MacMUlan
Graduates Return To
Campus Saturday
Mr. H. R. MacMillan, president of
the H. R. MacMUlan Export Company,
will be the fourth speaker at the Vocational Guidance lecture which is
scheduled for Wednesday at noon in
Arts 100. The Alumni Committee in
charge of arrangements for the series
of short informative talks has been
endeavoring for some time to give
undergradautes at the University an
opportunity to hear Mr. MacMillan,
and has at last been successful in
completing final arrangements.
Born at Newmarket. Ontario, Mr.
MacMillan attended the University of
Toronto where he received his B.A.
degree, later continuing his studies at
Yale University where he obtained
his M.A. degree in forestry.
In 1910 he joined the Dominion Forestry Service, and for four years,
from 1912 to 1916, he was chief forester for British Columbia. Then, in
1917, he toured the world as special
trade commissioner under the department of trade and commerce.
Since 1919 Mr. MacMillan has taken
an increasingly active part in various
business ventures in the West. At
the present time he is president of
numerous companies, including his
own firm, Canadian Transport Company, Canadian White Pine Company,
and B. C. Packers, Ltd. He is a director of the Canadian Bank of Commerce, the London and Western
rust Company, Ltd., Vancouver Cre-
osoting Company, Dominion Tar and
Chemical Company, Alberta Wood

Spurred by the success of the last
recital featuring outside artists, the
Musical Society is presenting its own
student talent on Thursday at noon.
Forming the background of the
concert, the modern choir will sing
the well known "Anchors Away", in
a particularly novel eight-part arrangement. Accompanied by the orchestra this same group also will offer several of the best selections from
the "Pirates of Penzance."
One of the most outstanding of the
new members is Myrtle Gray, L.R.
S.M., talented young New Westminster pianist.
Her selections are the beautiful
Brahms "Intermezzo" and the brilliant contrasting "Valse Chromatigue"
by Godard.
Well known to student audiences,
Gordon Heron is always assured of
a warm welcome. This year he has
been studying grand opera and his
first number is an aria from the "Life
of the Czar." A delightful number
is his second selection, "Myself When
Young," from "The Persian Garden."
In it tho beautiful words from the
Rubayiat of Omar Khayam have been
enhanced by the lovely lyrics of Liza
Exuberant Grads found entertainment at a fast-moving rugby game,
an excellent tea dance, and a revislta-
tion to the scenes of their wild collegiate youth as they returned to the
Campus for Saturday's Alumni Day
festivities. Large numbers swarmed
about the University, and it is expected as a result that Alumni Day,
as well as Spring Homecoming ceremonies, will become an institution in
the entertainment of Graduates.
Many outstanding graduates lent
dignity to the occasion with their
presence. These Included John Burnett, president of the Alumni Association; Mark Collins, ex-president of
the Alma Mater Society; Margaret
Powlett, ex-president of the Players'
Club; Dorothy Thompson, ex-president of the Women's Undergraduate
Society; O. S. Clark, Arts '22 and
Dorothy Brown, Arts '27, were the
most "ancient" grads to attend tho
various entertainments.
Bernard Brynelsen, President of
Students' Council, spoke a few words
of welcome to the graduates and
made an announcement concerning a
gigantic "Homecoming" to be held in
the spring.
Sidney Hermant, a member of the
visiting debating team, said that he
had never seen so many beautiful
women before. "Indescribable pulchritude" was his compliment to
U.B.C. co-eds. "Delightfully informal" was the comment of Eli Kelloway, McGill debater, on the tea
In a sparkling, hard-fought, error-
free game Varsity triumphed over the
Grads and initiated the new stadium
field Saturday with a 3-0 score.
It was rugby at its best, on a crisp,
sunshiny Autumn day, with a truly
"collegiate" crowd standing on the
side-lines, and more enthusiasm
shown than I have seen in three
years of following the game in Vancouver.
The game itself waa almost perfect,
no slips by anyone, and both teams
at top pressure all the way,
It  was ding-dong   fighting,   until,

Gamma Phi Beta

Cup Second Time
At an informal Panhellenic tea in
the women's common room Thursday
afternoon, Dean Bollert presented the
scholarship cup to Margaret Buchanan as representative of Gamma Phi
Beta fraternity. The cup, donated
by Delta Gamma fraternity, has been
won for two consecutive years by
Gamma Phi Beta.
About fifty sorority representatives
were present. Following the tea, Miss
Bollert spoke for a few moments on
subjects of interest to the sororities.
She mentioned particularly the fact
that many students on the campus
are now finding it impossible to pay
their fees, and suggested that the
sororities might be able to help a

Last year one of our columnists offered
some ideas for the Spring Play, and started
an epidemic of bright suggestions which
seemed to embarass the Players' Club consid
erably. We suppose that, as a result, the
paternal advice to follow will be resented. The
Players will observe with a sneer that we are
telling them how to run their own business,
and we will reply with another sneer that that
IS our business.
All very pleasant and something that might
be comfortably disputed across the Pub floor
or perhaps with some broadsword props. Only
we cannot let it go so easily, and this is the
reason. When we alighted from the bus the
other day we saw someone so engrossed in
reading a play that she had failed to notice
that the contraption (Varsity bus) had jerked
to a halt and everyone left. We had to inves
The play was Eugene O'Neill's "Marco Mil
lions" and the only possible person that that
play could hold is an actress in search of a fat
Because, after all, the play shows O'Neill
at his worst, and that is very, very bad. Instead
of strong prose there is vapid verse, and in
stead of an arresting theme there is decidedly
obvious satire.    If the intention of the Club
is to be modern yet serious, choosing this play
is moral cowardice, and it is almost misrepre-
sensation of O'Neill. If there is fear of offend
ing the Board of Governors, "friends of the
University,"  and other elderly people, they
had better return to Ibsen and his bombshells
of the Nineties.    Ibsen is probably just re
spectable to "friends of the University".   Gra
cious, what an upstart O'Neill must be!
If we are to be regaled with the sociological
problems of the last generation, and that is
what Ibsen means, we would much prefer to
see an early play of Galsworthy. These plays
have true greatness, and are in an idiom which
seems much closer to real life to all of us. From
most points of view "Strife" or "The Silver
Box" would be excellent nominations. The
problems they present happen to be very much
problems today.
With the Musical Society the matter is
rather simpler than with the Players' Club.
The choice of opera is limited to the Gilbert
and Sullivan works, this selection proving most
satisfactory to audiences and players alike.
The material that the Musical Society has
to work with is admittedly limited in ability
and experience. They can only just manage
the operas of their choice, and even so, experi
ences will happen such as that of last year,
when a city paper critic refused point blank
to give the production the vaguely laudatory
account demanded for every local effort. So
we must not ask too much.
All the same it is disappointing that "Pir
ates of Penzance," the choice of several years
ago, is to be repeated. The opera is only too
familiar to many, it is not even full length when
professionally presented, and the music has
none of the beauty of some of the scores the
Society has left as yet untouched.
If they are unsure of themselves, however
it is best after all that they have chosen "Pirates" for their experimentation.

Hollow Men. (1) It is usual to emphasize
the words "hollow" and "stuffed" of the two
first lines in T. S. Eliot's The Hollow Men.
Much has been written and said concerning
the symbolism of these words. This interpretation is, I believe, quite incorrect.
The "Penny for the Old Guy" line which
introduces the poem should be taken as a cry,
coming, perhaps, from a Guy Fawkes Procession. Eliot, hearing the cry, writes . . . We are
the hollow . . . We are the stuffed ... At this
point the adjectives "hollow" and "stuffed"
merely happen to be the ones which describe
the November fifth dummy; their significance
and meaning are fully realized in the latter
sections of the poem.
(2). The "Mistah Kurtz-he dead" dedication (which has been lately dropped) for the
Hollow Men, comes as far as I have been able
to find out from Joseph Conrad's short story
Heart of Darkness. However, this reference is
not very suited and may quite possibly be
The line "Sovegna vos" which occurs in the
fourth section of T. S. Eliot's Ash Wednesday
may be found in Dante, canto 26 of the Pur-
gatorio, line 145. The fact that the phrase is
Provencal French causes many people to
search in quite useless places. An early
French poet confined to the Purgatory, speaks
to Dante, and speaks, naturally, in his native
Random House has recently issued two volumes of Clifford Odet's plays: a cloth-bound
edition of his Three Plays for $2.50; and a
cheap-paper edition of Waiting for Lefty and
Till the Day I Die for $1.25. Waiting for Lefty
was played at the Labor Theatre (Nov. 8, 9,
11). Any one who has not seen the performance because of "unconscious humour" should
read the play and realize that whatever
humour the play has certainly isn't unconscious. It really is quite simple: the line in
question was "or one dollar buys nine loaves of
bread and one copy of the Communist Manifesto. Learn while you eat. Read while you
run ..." You see the speech is quite in character. The stenographer is a rather hard-
boiled person, with the modern disease of self-
cynicism.   But as for any unconscious humour
The Christmas production of Scenes from
Hamlet under the direction of Mr. Dilworth
will present Hamlet as a young undergraduate
and as having that type of sensitiveness. This
interpretation of Hamlet is without doubt the
correct one. Too often is Hamlet thought to
be a middle-aged and disillusioned man. It is
to be hoped that the Christmas plays will do
much to correct the idea (even quite prevalent on this campus) that Hamlet is anything
but completely natural when he says:
•'Seems, madam.   I know not seems."
The Modern Languages Department of the
University brought to Vancouver for a one-
night showing the most beautiful piece of camera work that has yet come to the screen. The
story was not really worth the absolute artistic quality of the filming; the Quebec landscape and sky were perfectly translated; Maria
was during the first part of the film shown
again and again with a background from which
she hardly stood out; and in still shots the
whole setting was always given a perfect balance.
The actors were without exception surely
cast and all had a naturalness that was restrained enough to be convincing. Maria was
of an exquisite beauty and a charm something similar to that of Elizabeth Bergner.
It may have been that the whole literal
beauty of the film was finally just too much
for the sordid and pitiful reality of the last
line ...

Dear Sir:
On behalf of the West Kootenay
Alumni I wish to extend congratulations to the student body for putting
into effect the idea of a longer noon
Certain advantages of a longer noon
hour are obvious: it will be possible
to have organized intra-mural sports;
more stduents will enjoy the advantages afforded by participation in
athletics; and there will be ample
time for debates and meetings. Not
so obvious, but just as real, are the
advantages which should result from
greater association with other students and increased support for campus organizations.
We shall watch the results of this
new departure with interest but feel
that it is a progressive move and destined for success.
Yours sincerely,

Many New Books Are
Now On Library Shelves
Many new books, the purchase of
which are made possible by the Carnegie grant, are coming to the Library continually. Amongst those
which have recently arrived are:
"Beyond the Mexique Bay," by Al-
dous Huxley. After a sight-seeing
trip through Central America and
Mexico, Mr. Huxley describes his impressions of these countries. Although
he commented himself "try as I may,
I cannot very much, like the primitive people. They make me feel uncomfortable," he manages to give a
very entertaining account of his journey. He comments upon immediate
scenes but digresses upon many matters suggested by the places visited,
such as nationalism, folk art, and
even topics as far afield as Victorian
furniture. Contained in this book
are many Interesting pictures snapped
en route;
"The Making of Americana," by
Gertrude Stein. A complimentary
preface by Barnard Fay says of the
book, "In these pages her family is
aliv«." It is the story of an American family, the Herslands, living in
a town called Bridgepoint. Their relationships with the various members
of their group are recounted in great
detail, and a clever analysis of humon
types Is achieved.
"The Rock," by T. S. Eliot. The
scenario of this play was written by
Mr. E. Martin Browne, and under his
direction Mr. Eliot wrote the choruses and dialogues. It is a pageant
play in prose and poetry. The play
opens on a modern scene where
working men are building a church.

various historical groups come upon
the stage and enact scenes bearing on
the growth of the Christian Religiop.
"The Death Ship," by B. Tavern.
This stimulating and outstanding novel of the sea is narrated by a New
Orleans sailor. He tells how he was
stranded In Antwerp with neither
friends, money nor idenitfication
papers. A man without a country is
shunted over Europe from one nation to another. Finally he boards a
ship which he later discovers is being
sent by its owners to be sunk for its
insurance. His experiences in the
stokehold of this dreadful death ship
make up a book of pain and truth.
"The Old Innes of England," by A.
E. Richardson, is a profusely illustrated guide to English Innes, alehouses
and hostelrles. Interesting impressions
of the old innes are caught in excerpts
of letters by various historic characters such as Pepys, Dr. Johnson, Cob-
bett and Washington Irving. In this
book the contrast between the modern
English innes and the old medieval
structures is illustrates by recent
photographs and old sketches drawn
hundreds of years ago.  ,
"Make It New," by Ezra Pound. In
this volume Mr. Pound has reprinted
several of his best essays. Eight in
"Art ond the Life of Action," by
Max Eastman is also a book of essays.
In the first of these, which bears the
.title of the book, Mr. Eastman proclaims his blind loyalty to communism, and indicates a solution that
could be adopted by a revolutionary
party to end political dictatorship.
"The Nature of Capitalist Crisis,"
by John Strachey, which deals with
technical questions, is an attempt to
prove that capitalism will not work,
no matter how modified, because it Is
based upon unsound principles. The
alternative is, of course, communism,
and since Mr. Strachey is a Marxist,
he argues that the best course for
intelligent people to persue Is to
hasten the coming of communism.
"The Chart of Plenty," by Harold
Loeb and associates, is a thought provoking contribution to economic literature. It is a study of America's
product capacity based on the findings of the Naitonal Survey of potential product capacity. The book
deals with the important question: Is
it physically possible for the people
of the United States to produce and
enjoy the goods necsesary to a decent

machines pay for the derelicts."
The second speaker for the affirmative, Davie Fulton, gave a detailed
explanation of the workings of Social
Credit, attempting to show that the
idea is just, equitable and practical.
"The use of Social Credit money,"
Fulton stated, "will release vast
hoards of gold deposits that can be
used in our foreign exchange. The
position of Canadian world markets
will be improved."
"Social Credit is not a political
party but a principle, and under it
both Conservatives and Liberals can
thrive. We want them to adopt the
principles of Social Credit to Canada's.
The speakers for the negative, Sidney Hermant and Eli Kelloway, proceeded to tear apart the arguments
of the local men.
"Since the first speaker has not explained Social Credit," Kelloway
stated in opening, "it is rather hard
to prove his arguments wrong. We
agree that the present system is inadequate and we deplore the defects of
capitalism but we are certain that
Social Credit is not the way out of
the morass".
"Social Credit devotees cannot answer questions on the details of their
system. They evidently don't know
them. Douglas and Aberhart are in
the peculiar position of not being able
to explain the workings of their own
"Social Creditors say that the present problem is purely monetary and
use the bankers as their scapegoat.
They will attempt to fix a 'just price'
but how can you fix prices in a system that uses profit as an incentive?
Prices must either be left free or we
must bring about Socialism."
"Social Credit plans to subsidize the
people's purchasing power with their
National Dividend. In the final analysis this will come out of the pockets of the people in the form of
taxes. Natural economic laws will
not change their courses, even for a
party victorious at the polls."
Concluding his argument, Kelloway
defined Social Credit as a "collossal,
collapsible edifice of economic fiction."
Sidney Hermant, closing the debate
for the negative, stated that tho Canadian people should not trust the future of Canada to any economic system until we are sure that it will
"Social Credit was started by an
engineer and a preacher," he continued. "Never in the history of the
creed has a recognized economist favoured it."
"According to Major Douglas Social
Credit must subsidize industry but
Aberhart claims that the consumer
should receive the dividend. How
are we going to raise the money?"
Concluding, Hermant stated* that
"we must know where we are going
before we trust Social Credit with
any power. The scheme must be
proven before it is in effect. Social
Credit has failed to take Canada's
problems into consideration."
H. R. Bray, chairman of the judges,
in giving the decision to the visitors,
stated that in the opinion of the
judges the affirmative speakers had
not explained the doctrine of Social
The other two judges were T. S.
Dixon and F. W. Smelts, both prominent Vancouver business men. Professor J. Friend Day was in the chair.
The Vancouver victory marks the
third win of the touring speakers. In
Calgary, hot-bed of Social Credit,
thoy successfully opposed it and in
Regina they spoke against seccession
of the four Western Provinces.
Kelloway and Hermant left Vancouver Saturday for Victoria to meet
Victoria College. They will, on their
return journey debate at Edmonton,
Saskatoon and Winnipeg.
That music hath charms to sooth
Arts and Science students as well as
the odd wild beast was demonstrated
conclusively at last Friday's Pep
Meeting for the Rugby Club. Students
turned out en masse, clutching nickels, to hear Bob Lyon and his band
of hot jazz dispensers pour forth their
haunting melodies. The young maestro from the Commodore Cabaret,
sartorially perfect in white coat and
beaming smile, opened with "Hail
U.B.C' The vast audience roared
forth the refrain with enthusiastic if
not aesthetic appreciation.
The band was a vaudeville troupe
in itself and a gold mine of talent.
Bonnie Shannon melted the hearts of
hard-shelled engineers with "Double
Trouble" and other "blues" songs. A
guitar-pllnker, one Lew O'Leary,
crooned "Monday in Manhattan," bidding fair to rival the great Vallee.
Daryl Harper, a dark and handsome
gent with a romantic moustache, tore
himself away from his over-sized fiddle long enough to tell the mike about
"Nagasaki" with appropriate contortions. This surprisingly gymnastic
musician also thumped, slapped,
twirled and generally committed mayhem on his string bass to produce
the "Tiger Rag."
The Amateur Hour influence at last
reached the university when a devotee nf Major Bowes' program struck
an improvised gong during items that
failed to win his approval.
The visiting debaters, Sidney Hermant and Ell Kelloway, were introduced, and wasted no time in unleashing some of their high-powered
oratory on the skeptical students.
Captain Harry Pearson presented his
gang of rugby stalwarts, who threatened, by way of the "Rugby Song", to
account for at least fifteen enemy
corpses over the week-end.
Italy Took
Wrong Step
(Continued from Page 1)
To the argument that Italy has no
raw materials he suggested that It
is trade that Italy needs rather than
raw materials, and a treaty guarantee
has been offered to prevent monopolies of natural products.
The speaker stated that Mussolini
embarked in the war to increase his
own prestige without which he cannot retain his power. "Grandeur," he
said, "is what Mussolini requires, and
if he loses that he loses all. To protect himself he has had to create a
war, but he has had to oppress a
backward people to do it.
"The issue before the League now is
whether it is to allow the oppression
of a backward people," he added,
pointing out that the prevention of
oppression must be carried by all and
not by one or a few.
There are three kinds of sanctions
that can be put in force against Italy:
moral, munitions, and economic. These
have all been put into force to a certain extent, but their operation has
been seriously hampered by the United States, where no definite stand has
these sanctions the moral effect of
He suggested that if a definite settlement can be forced by means of
yet been made, the speaker declared,
the success would probably last for
some time.
"But if the powers become deeply
involved in Ethiopia," he pointed out,"
"Japan may say 'Hands off Asia'.
Japan is quite prepared to see Rome
burn while she fiddles on the shores
of Asia. She is already saying that
no power can check her advance." He
also pointed out that Japan has denounced the naval treaties as unsatisfactory, and that she has been steadily
increasing her invisible control over
"If the League of Nations succeeds
in Ethiopia the Japanese will probably
be much more careful in Asia," Dr.
Soward concluded.
To the engaging rhythms of Jack
Lyons and his orchestra, members of
the Musical Society held their party
for this term Friday night.
The affair took place at the newly
opened Huron Lodge in Kerrisdale,
where some fifty members and guests
forgot all campus cares and choral
In spite of the rather crowded space
all enjoyed themselves thoroughly,
while among those noted especially
attentive to feminine wants was Walter Barss, treasurer of the society, assisted by John Logan.

of the Musical Society, and his wife,
extended their patronage to the party.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
As Armistice draws near, it behoves
us all to pay close attention to the
situation now confronting us.
War is no linger a mere shadow
menacing the peace and security of
millions.' Today It is a stark reality
in Etiopla and in China.
Who can tell when it will engulf
Africa or Asia, Europe or the whole
world? In a few weeks or in a few
months?   Possibly in a year?
At all events one thing is certain.
Humanity drifts rapidly to a shambles
such as history has never seen. And
equally certain is it that humanity
bitterly fears and hates war.
Can nothing be done? Are we the
utterly helpless fools of forces beyond all control? Must men die in
millions to win markets for a degenerate and tottering system? Must
students, the intellectual backbone of
nations, sacrifice everything because
a Mussolini wills it?
To usk these questions is to challenge the answer. The Student League
of Canada believes we CAN protect
ourselves if we will but use the
weapon within our easy grasp.
This weapon so quickly available,
yet so apparently hard of application,
is the weapon of UNITY, the unity
of all people who desire peace and
who are courageous enough to practice their convictions. For only by
confronting the war mongers with a
sufficiently solid wall of opposition
can we show them clearly and unequivocally, that a second futile and
barbaric world war will not be tolerated.
Unity can be achieved in two
fields: individuals can join anti-war
groups; anti-war groups can affiliate.
Already the two largest organizations in America, embracing many
hundred-thousand members, are amalgamating because they realize that
it is "a race between themselves and
the  war-mongers."
By its wide international affiliations
with these organizations and others,
the Student League also shows its
recognition of the urgent need for
unity. It therefore presents, locally
and nationally an example of antiwar unity which continues to affect
an ever increasing number of students. At the same time it offers a
concrete opportunity for students on
this campus to express their convictions first by affiliations and later in
demonstrations, that war can and
must be stopped.
The League believes that the Student body will respond to this call
for support of and for affiliation of
other clubs with any anti-war organization before the situation gets
beyond control, while there is yet
time to obtain unity on a scale which,
as it grows internationally from day
to day, will absolutely forbid war.
Students—unite with us individually and in your organizations for
The Student League of Canada,
U.B.C. Chapter.

—CKUA, University of Alberta radio
station, is again on the air for the
winter season. The station will broadcast daily except Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 2:30 in the afternoon
and from 7 to 8:45 in the evening.
As in past years the station will be
a member of the Foothills Network,
a number of its programs every day
being broadcast over CFAC in Calgary and CJOC in Lethbridge.
The Wauneita Reception, annual reception given by the co-eds for the
men students, which took place in the
dining room of Athabasca Hall, central University residence building, a
short time ago, was an unqualified
success, in spite of stories of overcrowding reminiscent of the Black
Hole of Calcutta. Some 500 students
danced to the music of the Varsity
orchestra, which was also broadcast
over radio station CFRN, Edmonton,
for an hour during the dance.
This is the open season for ex-University of Alberta students entering
politics. A week ago it was ann-
nounced that J. H. Blackmore, U. of
A. grad of some years ago, will likely lead the Social Credit group at
Ottawa. Mr. Blackmore had a distinguished university career and is a
high dignitary in the Mormon Churchy
He was elected to represent Lethbridge constituency. Today news has
been received that Alderman R. V.
Bellamy, who was registered at this
university in Law from 1914 to 1917,

have especially requested that students be in their seats in the lecture
room not later than 12:25, in an effort to cut down the amount of interference to the course of the lecture.
It sure has been a hectic week-end.
I don't know how I've found time to
write my diary. First of all there was
the science party on Thursday night,
then the debate and Musical Society
party on Friday, the tea dance on
Saturday, I had a date on Saturday
night and then the rugby game was
The tea dance was a lot of fun only
I hadn't anything to wear, everything
was at the clearners or I'd worn it
the day before.
Anyway I borrowed
a dress from the
girl next door. She
is about my size
and comes in awfully handy at
times. It was the
smoothest dress, a
soft yellow wool almost gold trimmed
with a brown velvet collar and jabot and a brown suede belt. It was
a two piece with pockets on the front
bound in brown. I wore a brown
sports hat with it, also borrowed.
I just looked perfect and was warm
at the game too. I asked my friend
where she got it and of course she
said ANNE MALONEY'S; I should
have known. The hat came from there
too. I was told that ANNE MALONEY has a lot of the swellest two-
piece wool suits, warm but light, just
right for games. I must go down and
see them. Mother is always trying
to get me to wear warm things so I
think I can persuade her to let me
get a new suit.
I was just worn out Saturday night
and had to go to a dance with Jack.
At first I didn't see how I could
stand it because the feet were kicking up something awful. However,
Sis suggested that I wear her new
lew heeled evening sandals. They
are in silver kid and look awfully
smart, the low military heels are the
most comfortable things. She bought
them at RAE'S last month and doesn't see how she ever lived before. I
used to tftink that low heels weren't
such a good idea but there is going
to be another pair in the family
pretty soon. They are going to come
from RAE'S CLEVER SHOES too, because he has the nicest shoes in town,
I think.
Jack took me to the BLUE GOOSE
after the rugby game on Monday. It
was horrible at the game, cold and
more or less wet, but I soon got to
feeling cheerful again after we drank
the swellest tea I've ever had, It
was so nice that we came back for
the dinner dance in the evening, I
guess we are about the best customers that place has, but it only shows
how clever we arc to know a good
thing when we see it.
I was feeling quite dressed up because I had on a new collar I'd just
bought at MRS. PATONS. I was
down on South Granville on Thursday and went in to see what she had.
There were some lovely collar and
cuff sets in lace and crepe de chine.
I bought a bertha collar with military cuffs to match. It was of net
and georgette in alternate strips and
just added a million dollars to one of
my old dresses,

Soccer Squad
Loses  And

Thunderbird Soccerites Still
Wihout a Win
Bluebirds 3, Varsity 0; Forsts 1, Varsity 1. That's the results of the
senior soccer squad's week-end campaigning.
Amid the cheers and Jeers of the
ever-present large crowd at Cambie'
steet grounds, the students were defeated there Saturday by Bluebirds.
Yesterday against Fonts at Kerrisdale Park, a re-vamped team,
which played Inspired football after
the turn-over, was unlucky not to
register Varsity's first win of the
It was a different team that played
Forsts and that which opposed Bluebirds. Perhaps It was the large crowd,
but whatever the cause, throughout
the whole game Varsity never appeared dangerous on offensive although defensively they put up a good
fight. The forwards passed to opposing players and generally appeared
weak and disorganized.
Bluebirds scored once in the first
half, when Greenwood fumbled a
cross from the wing. In the second
half, Jerry Sutherland unintentionally
handled the bail in the goal area.
Greenwood saved the undeserved spot
kick, but in clearing was rushed by
a flock of Bluebirds, so goal number
two was chalked up, In the closing
minutes, Bluebird fordwards combined
to register number three, the only
goal they earned entirely on the'r
own efforts.
In yesterday's lineup, Quayle took
over goal-tending duties, while Greenwood, suffering from a sprained wrist,
went out to left wing and used his
left foot to advantage.
During the firs half, the ex-junior
champions had  play pretty  well to
themselves, but a stubborn Varsity defense could not let them score.
After the rest period, Varsity started
with a rush and tested Forsts' goal
from all angles. However, Forsts were
able to put one past Quayle during a
hkirmish when the ball travelled to
the other end. Varsity kept up Its renewed fight and a few minutes later
Irish, outside right, put over a well-
placed ball into the goal mouth. In
the rush to score and clear, Goddard,
centre forward, was able to put his
head to the ball and sent it between
the posts. This well-deserved goal
was a good climax to many attempts
by both forwards and halfs,

Thunderbirds went down before the College of Puget Sound's

every department the British Columbia boys were in there fighting all
the way, and even with the count
piled hopelessly against them had
enough spirit to keep driving. Just
before the final whistle Charlton
made the best U.B.C. run of sixty
thrilling yards after intercepting a
forward pass.
The Loggers showed great passing
form and were like rockets on their
end runs. Pate heaved many long
passes resulting in great gains, and
Brlggs, a short speedy and stock half
showed his heels around the ends.
Pringle also carried the ball on end
runs, while McFadden was picking
the passes out of the air.
Gray showed up well on the Thunderbird side, using all his 12& pounds
to great advantage. Charlton, Twiss
and Hay were also good in the back-
field, although the latter was visibly
hampered by his bad ankle. Warn-
ken played a fine game in the line
along with Orr and Boe. There was
not one good kicker on the squad,
however, and the attempts at forward
passes looked just silly. Three out
of four times the opposition was on
the passer before he had a chance to
get the ball away.
The two fellow's who had their
first chance to show for their Alma

performances. They were Davie and

Ruggers Score
Win Over Royalitcs
Varsity's second division rugby
team turned in its best game so far
this season when they defeated the
New Westminster Rugby team 9-p.
This win is of greatest importance
for by it, U.B.C. moves up into a
first place tie. If the students can
win their remaining games, it will
mean at least a play off game for
the cup.
The New Westminster Rugby Club
was formerly the ex-south Burnaby
team that was undefeated for three
years and are considered the class of
thc division. So it looks good for Varsity's chances.
The team was composed of Ellis,

Game To Soccerites
Soccer Is supreme 1—this was proven
when the brawny, light-footed (headed?) Senior soccermen showed a representative bunch of Senior Basketballers how the new wonder game,
Basketsoc, should be played. Collecting six goals In the Soccer part of this
Innovation, and three baskets ln the
hooping half, the round-ball artists
were awarded tho game 9 points to 7,
all the higher mathematics being
worked out by Professor Gage.
The Basketeers, in an attempt at
Soccer, gave a very good exhibition
of enthusiastic shin-kicking and skull-
crushing. Captain "Joe" Pringle and
Bill Patmore were out chasing each
other around in the bunion derby,
coming over to the gym late in the
second chapter of this novel performance, both looking as though they had
just gone through a wringer.
Glenn Mason, star guard of the Senior B team playing goal for the Hoop-
sters, had tho spectators rolling in the
aisles when he .scored a goal on himself from a goal kick. All through
the "Soe(k>" part of this "Basksoc"
spectacle, the rough-house tactics of
the Basket squad "floored" their opponents, continually, a dramatic climax being reached when Manager Al-

Bears Have Grid
Defeat Habit Also
A somewhat unsuccessful rugby
season was brought to a close here
recently when the University of Alberta Golden Bears went down to a
10-7 defeat at the hands of the Edmonton Hi-Grads. The Bears failed
to win a single game during the entire season, having lost the Provincial series in two straight games
against the Calgary Bronks and losing to Saskatchewan Huskies 27-1 in
the first of a two game series for the
Hardy Trophy. It is unlikely that
thc second game, scheduled for Saskatoon this coming Saturday, will be
played as near-zero weather with
snow has descended upon this portion of the country, completely tying
up all outdoor athletic activities.
The Western Canada intercollegiate
Track Meet was held here in almost
perfect weather. Teams from Saskatchewan and Manitoba were present. The meet resulted in a clean
sweep for Manitoba, which won both
men's and women's events, although
in the men's events the scores were
close, Manitoba having 55 points, Alberta 50 points and Saskatchewan 39.

Give Royals Scare But
Lose 36-32
A hard-fighting band of Thunderbird hoopmen dropped a close tilt to
Jack Barbarie's Adanacs by the heartbreaking score of 36-32.
'Doc' Montgomery's charges showed the result of a week of his able
mentorshlp, by playing an Inspired
game of smart basketball, with all
the traditional pep of Blue and
Gold squads. Also noticeable was
the snappy team-work displayed by
the Senior "A"s on Saturday.
Right at the start of the game, the
U. B, C. basketmen gave fair warn-
ning that ther were in the fight, by
grabbing a 6-2 lead through baskets
by Patmore, Berry and Hardwick.
The Adanacs came back srongly in
the last ten minutes of this half, to
pull even with Varsity through counters by Wright and Ross, and then
forge gradually ahead, until at the
breather they had a comfortable lead
of seven points, 17-10.
After the turnover, the game speeded up considerably both squads breaking fast, and checking like fiends.
Twice this period Varsity pulled up
to within two points of the Barbarie
men, only to see the lead increased
each time, until finally, with 3 minutes left to play the core board showed eight points difference in the two
squads, 36-28.
A basket by Bruce Miller which
made the count 36-30, with three minutes to go, had all the Blue and Gold
supporters howlng hysterically for
our Hoopers to tie it up.
But it was not to be—for although
Bill Patmore did sink another on a
pretty combination play, old father
time counted our boys out, with the
final score being 36-32 for Adanacss.
Diminutive Chuck Holmes and Joe
Ross were the most effective on the
Adanac offence, both eluding their
checks several times to pile up 10 and
11 points respectively,
To pick out any individual stars on
the Varsity squad would be extremely difficult and probably unwise, for
the majority of U. B. C. baskets came
as a result of smart team-work.
In the prelim game, Varsity's Senior B's lost a tough game to Blane,
Fullerton and White, by a 31-22
score. Bartlett was the scoring menace of the B. F. and W. squad, amassing a total of 16 points for his
evening's work. Long John Lafon
and "Lefty" McLellan wfcre thc most
effective baskct-snatchers on the
Blue and Gold team, collecting 8 and
6 points respectively.
Here's the news:
ADANACS - Ross (11), Wright (5),
Smith (7), Meehan, Douglas, Math-
eson (2), Fraser (1), Holmes (10),. Total 36.
VARSITY- Lucas (5), Pringle (5),
Hardwick (2), Patmore (8), McKee,
Millar (6), Berry (6), Detwiller, Davis, Ridland. Total 32.

Coach Dobbie, after the game, and
magnificent they were.
Prom forwards to full-back they
drove ahead without ceasing all
through the game. They made no
mistakes, and they did miracles when
miracles were called for.
From the start they demonstrated
their superiority over the cream of
Vancouver's rugby talent. Ten minutes after the game started Carey
drove across for the first try, but
failed to convert his own score.
Seldom has dribbling been seen ln
such perfection as during the next
few minutes. Varsity pressed up the
filed in open, kicking plays, forcing
the Reps to save once, and then
pressed back to their own line by
three penalties in succession, they
started an extended dribbling run,
which ended by Shirley Griffin going
over for the second score, making it
6-0 for the Blue and Gold.
From now on, the Reps, who had
not .been over careful in their contacts, came in for heavy punishment
as the surer Varsity men hit them
hard and often. One man went off
with a broken arm, and a second was
disabled for the remainder of the first
Two or three sparkling runs then
advanced the ball to within scoring
distance, and a dribble ended in it
being kicked over the line. Several
Varsity men flung themselves after
it, and Harrison, the hard working
forward, was the lucky man to light
on it. The convert again missed, and
the half-time whistle blew with the
score 9-0 for the Thunderbirds.
The second stanza was a marvel of
hard, clean, flashing ball handling,
and it must be confessed that if any
honors are to be awarded, they lay
with the Reps. With fourteen men
against Varsity's fifteen, they not
only held the Blue from their line
for the whole period, but managed to
sneak across the score that kept them
from being whitewashed.
In this stretch Full-back Bird demonstrated the wisdom of his selection
for the position he holds.
Kicking, running or catching, he
outdid himself, and broke up one
scoring threat after another. The
Reps' solitary count did not go
through him, as it was from a line-
out near the Varsity goal. One is in-
clinc|.l to say that it could not have
gone through him, as he was playing
that afternoon.

to watch as he twisted and turned
his way past man after man, but they
were of no avail in increasing the
score, as the Reps always held too

Organizes Teams
With the league schedule due to be
announced late next week the University hockey coaches started to line
up a junior hockey team Friday.
The squad has had only three practices so it is very hard to pick a team
as many of the players are just getting the feel of the old stick after
the summer's lay-off and will improve greatly in the next week or
two. However, a probable team was
picked consisting of eight forwards-
Taylor, Perry, Mouat, Phelps, Ussher,
McArthur, Trussel, Woods; three defense men—McLeish, McKenzie, Lambert; and a goalie—Barchard. There
is a lot of competition for a berth on
this outfit and as the players Improve or weaken the team will be
changed accordingly.
The senior team has not been chosen yet since it will not be playing in
any league but will train for the
games against the University of Washington. This year the Americans are
playing intermediate hockey so the
teams that go to Seattle will likely
be half junior and half senior players, taking different men from each
squad for each game and thus giving
all men on both teams a trip.
The junior league will be a three-
cornered one. Varsity North Shore
and Arnold and Quigley. Times and
locations of games have not been announced but the Varsity team is shaping up well and will be ready as
soon as the bell goes.
Practices are held at the Arena and
are open to the public at no charge
so watch the notice boards and then
drop in and see how the "fastest
game in the world" is played by our
own boys. -CRAWLEY.
break-through once during the game.
It was, altogether, rugby at its
finest, and if the Cup is ever to come
back to its old home at Varsity, this
is the year it will come. After watching Monday's game, I believe it will
rest in the basement of King John's
Castle with the other silverware before many weeks are out.—MORLEY.
