Seattle Singers
Permitted Here
The great Olee battle ls over. Permission of Council waa obtained by
the Olee Club to have the Washington Choral Society come to U.B.C.
from the Seattle campus.
L.S.E.   prexy   Struan   Robertson
had  previously stopped  this  move,
partly   because  he  wished  to   give
preference   to   local   talent   In   the
form of the Varsity Olee Club, and
also   because   of   the  severe   financing  entailed   In  the   Importation.
President   Doug   Ford   of   the   Olee
Club   i.s   now    free   to   bring   in    the
Washington   song   birds,   but   Council
will   not  put   it   on   the   Pass   system.
Reservation imposed by the Faculty Committee on Student Affairs,
on the A.M.S. minute concerning
commercial means for raising Union
Building funds, will not be removed
until the Governors have decided
whether or not the $25,000 requested
by the Council  ia to be granted.
The minute, as passed by the Students' Council, reads as follows:
"THAT the Students' Council go on
record as advocating the use of commercial means to further the Union
Building fund, all such means to be
aporoved, In writing, by the Students'  Council."
If tho $25,000 is refused, Student
Council intends to flght to the finish
for permission to use commercial
means to raise funds. Such a method
would be their last hope in the campaign to construct the Union Building.
The council has in mind several
methods by which they might obtain
tlie long sought money.
Among these are a plan to build a
student service station on the campus, and a plan to put student radio
programs on a commercial basis, by
finding  sponsors.
The Faculty Committee on Student Affairs imposed a reservation
upon the Council minute concerning
the L.S.E. awards system, last week,
because of the wording of a section
of the constitution of the new system.
The   offending   portion   was   that
concerning  the   number  of  Faculty
members to be  elected   to  the  Literary     and     Scientific     Honorary
Since the wording has been changed  to  read:   "The number of Faculty
members elected a year shall not ex-
-ceed    two,"    the    Faculty    committee
has   given    its   approval    to    the   motion.

Council Notes
Outdoor Club
Orphaned by
Athletic Group
The Outdoor Club has been transferred from the Athletic Executive
and is now under the jurisdiction
of the Men's and Women's Undergraduate   Society.
At the last meeting of the Athletic Executive, It- was decided that
such an organization did not come
under the executive since It was not
a form of athletics, but came more
under the heading of a social organization.
Funds for the Outdoor Club will
be  distributed   through'the   Undergraduate   Society.
However   if    a    content   such   as   a
"Ski- Meet" were to be  held,  it would
come  under  the  heading of athletics,
and   funds  for such  would  be distributed   through  the athletic  executive.
Davis   and   Stordy   are   reported
to huve taken  over  control as far
us the  Outdoor Club ls concerned.

Miss Emily Carr, whose paintings are being exhibited this week ln
the Faculty Room of the library under Professor Hunter Lewis ls
considered by many foreign critics as Canada's foremost artist. She
Is the only painter who has gained International notice for an Interpretation of British Columbia. It ls interesting to note that lt was ln
this same room ln 1932 that Miss Carr flrst exhibited her work in
Canada. This flrst exhibition took place before Miss Carr was given
the   recognition   which  she   now   enjoys.
First Artist To Use B.C. Forests As Motif;  Original and
Brilliant Canvases On Show
Miss Emily Carr ls an intellectually courageous woman whose life
has been, and is, her art.
After her return trom training
abroad ln London and Paris, she
prepared a studio ln the loft of her
barn behind the family residence on
Oovernment Street. Victoria—there
were carriages not automobiles then
—and began her task of painting the
B.C. scene.
Interested in the Indians, their
character, their legends, and above
all, as an artist, ln their crafts and
totemlc designs, she visited many of
their communities. Miss Carr, with
a favorite dog a.-s companion, easel
painting and stool, became a familiar figure ln the Indian villages of
West Vancouver Island, thte Queen
Charlottes, and Northern B.C.
These visits were made repeatedly during the summer months, and
often her only means of local transportation was by canoe, guided by
Her canvases of these earlier years
are faithful  records of the villages—
and   of   the   totems,   many • of   which
have since been lost to B.C. and are
scattered  ln  the various  museums of
the continent. This work has an historic  as  well as an artistic  value.
The   Indian   theme   appears   also
In    her    craft-work,    "Klee    Wyck"
pottery   and   hand-made   rugs.   Her
varied experiences of these journeys
have been  described in a group of
short  stories,  written  quite  recently.
For the past several years Miss
Carr has worked, except during a
trip to the Llllooet, exclusively ln
the environs of Victoria. She has
taken a caravan each spring and fall,
and camped ln some of the less frequented spots of Albert Head, Sooke,
or Telegraph Bay.
Miss  Car   Is   her  happiest  In  the
woods with  her  dogs and  monkey,
and  routine of  wor...  These  camping   trips  are   a   steady   occupation
with  her brush  and  palette.
She goes out  ln  the differing  light
of morning, afternoon and early evening,   to  make   the  large   paper  sketches   In   oil,   examples  of   which   are
on   show   In   the   library.   These,   always    completed    at    a    sitting,    are
scarcely  ever  retouched.
These   canvases   arc   interpretive
rather   than   purely   descriptive.   At
(list   her   work   was   more   abstract,
with   the   emphasis  on   design.
Lately,   tlie   more   solid,   almost   totem-like   pattern   of   trees,   has   given
place   to  a   freer,  more  rythmic  style
which    better    serves    to    depict   the
movement   and   mood   of   her   forest
Mn ny pel-sens have, ;is they
thought, tried to paint the const
and woods of I.ritish (Aolumhiu
— nnd the pictures thus produced have been uniformly antl
dish cart en ingly  bad.
Indeed almost had we come to feel
that our own peculiar natural scenery, for the artist, was singularly
empty and of service but to the uses
of sentimentality and literal decoration.
There was simply no starting point
for those of us to whom it seemed
important that the phrase western
art   should   someday   have   meaning.
For us then, In approaching the
work of Emily Carr, it is of the utmost significance that here, for the
flrst time, an artist has with amazing
penetration made Intellectually valid
and aesthetically satisfying use of
the British Columbia landscape. An
artist moreover whom we can legitimately, though recognition has been
somewhat belated, consider as our
Alone and, as I have Indicated
largely unrecognized, Miss Carr has
with sure progression evolved her
own style. And by a practically constant and certain control over her
medium she makes her originality
The development of this originality seems to have come with tho
gradual centering of her Interest, for
subject, on the woods of British Columbia, And to me it seems that in
these later tree pictures we have the
best of Miss Carr's work.
Here she most successfully avoids
any tendency toward a too literary
treatment of her subject. She does
not describe, she reveals. The mood
is, in her surest work, never pictured; it comes out of the very elements with -which she makes her picture.
This fusion of Idea and subject,
rendered as it is In terms of a penetrating analysis and by a vigorous
originality of style, gives us the
woods in essence—the rhythm of forest growth. These woods we have
ulways known; Emily Car makes us
really   see   them.

Union Building
Under Discussion
The Brock Memorial Committee,
the Senate and the Board of Governors of the University of B.C.
will hold special meetings this
month to consider the matter of a
«2fi,000 grunt for the purpose of
erecting  the  Union   Building.
The Brock Committee Is expected to meet some time this week.
The Senate and the Board of Governors have planned their meeting for the week beginning November 14.

The new rules are designed generally to prevent "railroading" of
elections. It is felt that there waa a
possibility of such a practice under
former  regulations.
Until   now   It   haa  been possible
for  an  organized  group of people
to go to a poorly attended eleotion
and  by force of numbers elect to
office a slate ot friends who In no
way   represented    the    claaa    they
The   first   ruling  provides  that   all
class   elections   must   be   announced
two  weeks   beforehand.     This  measure will doubtless be welcomed slnoe
there  has  been  considerable  confusion  ln   the   past  when   notice  of  an
Impending   election   has   been   given
only a day or so before the election
Thus there has been a danger that
officers would be elected who were
not properly the choice of the whole
class. Class members will now have
plenty of time to cogitate on suitable executives and prepare nomination lists. In this way oillcers more
representative of the class as a
whole will  be  elected.
Likewise    the    minute    provides
that    nominations    for    president
shall be Alod ona week before the
date  of  the  election  and  muat be
signed by twenty membera of the
class In queation.
This  rule,  too,  gives  electors  time
in  which  to consider  the nominees.
The   necessity   for    twenty    signatures   will   ensure   that   the   nominee
possesses   certain   qualities   of   leadership   and   already   has    the     confidence of a proportion of the class.
The   minute   further   states   that
nil   such   elections   shall   be   under
the charge of the secretary of the
A.M.S. together with the presidents
of W.U.S. and the M.U.S.
Ratification   of   these   rulings,   embodied  in minute No. 10, was moved
by ap  Roberts and  seconded  by Davis.
Next week several campus clubs
and societies will feature a program
about the slogan, "Peace with Justice."
The societies ta'.lng  part will be
the   I.R.C,   the   Historical   Society,
the  Cosmopolitan  Club, the S.C.M.
and the Newman Club.
On Tuesday, November a. an S. C.
M. Vesper Service will be held at 4.30
in the Union College Chapel.
At  12.30 on Wednesday in Arts  100
there   will   be   a   Round   Table   Discussion   of    the   European    situation.
Dr. S. Thrupp, Dr. H. V. Warren and

The Students' Council is much to be commended on its ruling
regarding class elections. For many years hack into the history
of the university students hnve complained of the "railroaded"
elass elections, but no Council ever thought of doing anything
about it.
Last Monday, however, Jack Davis put forward a very simple
solution and the council accepted it.
Although the new ruling will entail a little trouble on the part
of the undergraduate society presidents it will certainly ensure
a fairer class election. The ruling is a very efficient method of
insuring that election meetings are not announced to more than
the few students who have in the past packed the meeting with
friends of one candidate.
The ruling would not be necessary if class members took an
interest in their activities. Hut as long as they don't it will perhaps tend to arouse enthusiasm.
Sincere thanks should bo extended to Mr. Hunter Lewis, and
Mr. Fred Brand I'or their efforts in organizing an exhibit of the
paintings of Emily Carr which is being shown in the Faculty Room
of the Library this week.
It i.s truly a treat for the students to be offered such an extensive exhibition of paintings by one who is spreading the fame
of British Columbia's beauty over the entire world.
With the time of the Cairn ceremony near we can look back
sixteen years to the time when our forerunners met a problem of
over crowding and solved it. The cairn ceremony is particularly
timely this year because it stands for those students who found
themselves in exactly the same situation ns the present U.B.C.
undergraduates. It is too early yet to say whether we have held
up their tradition, but we can safely say that we have not entirely
Another unfortunate consequence has arisen out of the shortening of the noon hour. The discourtesy to speakers whieh was so
flagrant in years before the one and a half hour noon period has
returned. After Miss Freda Utley had been speaking for over
twenty minutes students began sauntering in to the room slamming
door and shuffling their feet.
Although this shows decided luck of consideration on tlie part
of tlie .students it i.s not entirely their fault. To prove the statement that it is not their fault we can look back a few years and
remember that, after tlie lengthening of the noon hour this discourtesy did decrease to an appreciable! extent.
It is logical that students think of luncheon first, at noon, and
when they have to go to a lecture of the sort which is sponsored
on the campus several times a week. In order to give any sort ot
talk a full hour is necessary so the speaker is well on his way by
the  time  the students arrive.
Although ihe situation does show an unfortunate lack of
courtesy on the part of the students it is one urgent reason why
tlie uoon period should be lengthened by a half hour.

There ls a stream of cars  waiting
at   the   parking   lot,   a
GRECIAN        bustle     of     frightfully
RACE well   dressed     students
(this time males), a
good deal of shouting, a roaring of
engines, and Fraternity rushing is
on for this year's batch of enthusiastic  Freshmen.
Each year the respective lists of
the many Fraternities on the campus appear to grow ever larger, and
each year the competition amongst
the Fraternities Is correspondingly
on   the  Increase.     So  what?
Perhaps Its a sign that the depression is over, perhaps a sign that
the Fraternities are willing to enlarge their chapters, perhaps just a
sign that they have arrived at the
point where each and every Freshman that wishes to join a Fraternity
is now being given the opportunity
to don a delicate or indelicate piece
of jewelry.
No doubt every man who arrives
at a University ls keen to discover
tho value of a Fraternity, or at least
to find some good reason for his becoming Interested In one. It would
hardly be the place here for me to
attempt to present arguments for or
against them, ln as much as the
many Fraternity men on the campus
can probably find more time than
we to Inform the Inquiring Frosh.
The only matter with which we
are truly concerned ls
MARKET how the rushing Is done.
METHODS In past years lt has
been open knowledge
that Freshmen rushing has been lower than an election In a British Columbian country district! Is this
to be avoided this year? Or are
there to be the customary insults,
chips on shoulders, beefs, smart
tricks, and all that sort of thing at
the   conclusion   of   the   season.
But to wax idealistic for a spell. . .
Fraternities can without doubt contribute something both real and Intangible to their parent University,
and it is our fervent hope that more
of this invisible aid will be felt on
this our merry campus. So go to lt
Fraternity men, but try ever so hard,
pleuae, good fellows, to behave as if
you were interested ln men, and not
in cutting the throats of the other
And now for a spot of warning to
those    who    may    have
PROS   AND heard  Freda Utley yes-
CONS? terday.   This   journalist
may be an authority on
the subject of Oriental affairs, and
may have been an Intelligent observer for many years, but we find It
very difficult to accept tho views of
uo biassed a person as Miss Utley.
Banned from Japan, lt Is fairly obvious that her reliable views differ
from thoae of the Japanese.
This fact alone need not condemn
a person's opinions, but the fact that
she cannot say a good word for the
Japanese displays a sorely prejudiced mind. We feel, after considerable study, that the Japanese have
very good reasons for adopting their
present measures, and unless one restricts one's observations to the
purely moral aspects of the situation, one cannot but wonder what
else Japan could do under such circumstances.
We here and now offer our compliments to Miss Utley, and beg to inform her that we would be very
willing to enter into any correspondence with either herself or her supporters-! (Personally and privately
of course.)

Former member of the Faculty of

Philosophy and Psychology, is one
of the new additions to our University staff.
Born ln Ontario, he took his
earlier education ln that province.
He attended University of Toronto,

his B.A. and M.A. from each of the
former   two.

OTTAWA, Nov. .—A splurge of
appointments to th esenate and Important government positions and
possibly a change ln the federal
cabinet line-up before parliament
meets ls anticipated here.
Illness has Incapacitated both Finance Minister Dunning and Postmaster General Elliott and while
there ls a chance Mr. Dunning will
continue ln the cabinet, it ls unlikely
he will be able to handle the heavy
duties of the finance department
again. Revenue Minister Ilsley has
been looking after Mr. Dunnlng's
work since the latter's collapse ln the
commons last June and appears to
be doing a good job, along with his
regular work ln his own department.
Mr. Ilsley continues to be men
tloned as the likely successor to Mr.
Dunning although there ls a conflicting rumour that the Revenue
Minister would like to drop out of
politics and would be willing to accept an appointment to the Nova
Scotia supreme court. The situation
naturally depends on the extent of
Mr. Dunnlng's recovery within the
next few months but the government
probably will want to have a full-
time finance minister by the time
parliament meets.
Youthful William Mulock. Liberal
member   for   North   York,   la   the
likely   choice   for    the   postmaster
general   portfolio.   Mr.  Elliott's  illness Is still considered serious and
he  will  not  return  to the  cabinet,
according  to  several  well-informed
sources here. Mr. Mulock Is a great
friend of the Prime Minister's and
has showed  considerable  ability  in
his parliamentary duties.
Other  cablnet-shakeup  rumors  insist  that Hon. C. O. Power, minister
cf pensions and national health, will
accept a senate appointment and Dr.
James   McCann,   liberal   member   for
Renfrew    South,    will    succeed    him.
Justice Minister Lapointe is reported
io  be desirous of appointment  to the
senate  but   the    old    warrior  of  the
Liberal   party   plays   such   an   important   role    ln    the    commons  as   Mr.
Mackenzie   King's   right   hand   man
that   most   political   experts   here   do
not  believe  he  could  be  spared  from
the house.
Six senate seats are open and will
be filled shortly along with the numerous diplomatic vacancies. New
ministers are to be appointed to the
Canadian legations at Tokyo and
Paris and the new legation at Brussels will need a minister.
Little excitement ls being caused
here by the four by-elections scheduled for Nov. 14 ln London, Waterloo-South, Montreal-Cartier and
Brandon. Conservative Leader Manion will be returned in London as the
Liberals decided not to oppose him
after the prime minister made a
specific request ln this regard.
The Montreal seat will return a
Liberal as lt has ever since the riding
was formed ln 1925. Waterloo-South
and Brandon have been predominantly Conservative and there ls strong
possibility they will continue to be
represented by Conservative members
ln the commons. With the Canada-
United States trade treaty unsigned
there ts no particularly new Issue for
the by-elections and dull campaigns
likely will result.
Ottawa   remains   in   the   political
doldrums   but   down   In   a   stuffy,
little   courtroom   of   the   Transport
commissioners   In   the   Union   Station  here,  the  Bren  gun inquiry  Is
making news every day o the week.
The   probe   will   wind ■ up   within   a
month and Mr. Justice H. II. Davis,
the   one-man   royal   commissioner,
will hand his report to the government.
So  far,    in    the    opinion    of   most
writers     covering     the     probe     Col.
George   Drew's   attack   on   tlie   Bren
gun   contract    between    the    national
defence    department    and    the    John
Inglls  company   of  Toronto   for   7,000
Bren guns was generally justified al-
tUough several of his specific charges
cannot be proved.
Everyone connected with tlie inquiry in any way is quite cautious
not to pre-judge the case but the
impression grows that it might have
far-reaching repercussions ln the
national defence department personnel. Col. Drew's prestige seems to
have gone up several points and  the
Mid terms are with us again. And
ln this time of stress nothing ls more
encouraging than to hear of the sufferings of others ln similar straits.
In fact after reading the following
excerpt from a letter, written by a
student of 1917, I began to feel that
there might be some hope for me.
After all I did almost pass ln Trigonometry  once.
"Our exam was in Trigonometry
the study of angels. U remember I
wrote to you some time ago and
told u 1 didn't beleeve we would
have an exam In that object because I didn't know nuthlng about
it and I didn't beleeve anyone else
did either.
"I thot it was Just a Joke and he
was Just saying nursery rimes because lt didn't seem to make much
"Anyway, we did have an exam
and 1 told him what 1 thot of It. He
sez pruve cos. 30 xyz. Well nough i
couldn't see how he expected me to
no. I didn't care one way or the
other anyway.
"I must tell you something about
the Inefficiency of the exams. They
give us little buka with eight pagla
In   them.   I   never   use   more   than
one so all the rest Is wasted. It'a a
crime In war  time.
"After half an hour I got up and
started     for     the    door.    The    floor
squeaked and my shoes squeaked and
everyone started to laff, even the examiner laffed.
"I got so nervous I Just ran out of
the door. My nolves was shot to
pieces so 1 went to the doctor and he
told me to join the army for a complete rest."
The downfall of another promising
In order to cheer myself even more
I will quote a poem by a down trodden student of the same year.
"The   hours   I   spend   with   thee,   o
Will bring a string of D's to me,
I count them over, every a flunk,
My chemistry, my chemistry,

Without a doubt I sure am stung,
I count the D's until the end
And  there a final flunk ls hung,
Ah! acids strong that bite and burn!
Ah!   nitric  spilled  at  every  turn!
But worst of all, to strive at last to

When flrst  I realized how much  I
didn't know for the mid term exams,
I   had   considered   Joining   Proxy   ln
his psychopathic   ward.   But   now I
feel  that  If  men  like  these can  kiss
the   cross   of   exams  and  still   retain
their    sense    of    humour   .   .   .   why
shouldn't I?
The  Editor. The Ubyssey.
"The campus clubs existed for
twenty years before the hour and a
half noon was Introduced." In words
to this effect, a certain professor,
noted for his caustic comment on
student affairs, criticized the attitude
of the Ubyssey and of the Musical
Society in particular in regard to the
reversion  to  the  old  one hour  noon.
For a moment, let us follow his line
of reasoning. One might say that
civilization existed for centuries
without steam power, radio, and
other things which are now a real
part of our civilization: which thing
proves nothing. Closer home, U.B.C.
has continued in its field of scholastic endeavour until very recently
without a fee increase: which thing
again   proves  nothing,  or  does  it?
Seriously though, is this criticism
Justified? The reason offered is of the
"lt - was - good - enough - for - father"
type, which has always been a stumbling block to progressive thinking.
Extra-curricular activity DID benefit
by the longer noon; lectures and
studies   lost   nothing.   We   now   have
success he has attained at the investigation will probably assist him
ln becoming the new Ontario conservative leader, succeeding Hon.
Earl   Rowe. f
With some of Canada's most lm-j
portant legal talent assisting with]
the case, the amount of bickering
and personal animosity shown In th8
court is a rather amazing feature ol
the probe. It annoys Justice Davlq
considerably and he persistently raps)
counsel for wasting time and bringing up non-essential matters.

Dr. A. W. Currle, new professor of
Economics at U.B.C, stated in a recent Interview that he was most Impressed by the manner ln which
Varsity students seemed to settle
down to steady work right at the beginning of term.
In  commenting  on  the  campus,
he said that the relative distanced
between buildings are much greater than thoae back East, and he is
learning by degrees the differences
between a mist and a fog.
Dr. Currle won a Royal Society of
Canada  Fellowship  to  Harvard University, from which he graduated ln
the   class   of  Arts   '29,   receiving  his
Bachelor   of   Commerce    degree   in

Business  School,  where  he  took  his

In 1934-5, he was Director of
Queen's Extension Department, and
later, Assistant Director of Commercial courses, where he supervised the

Blue & Gold Meets Black & White
—by Basil Robinson
We're going to whale right ln now
and say a word for Maury Van Vllet
and his Intramural program which
ls receiving poorer support now than
ever before since its Inception. Surely
lt ls superfluous to remind everybody
now that class reps meet every week
to arrange schedules for games, and
have their hands full all week trying
to extract enough interest from their
classmates to put Volleyball and
Basketball  teams on  the floor.
To our way of thinking there ls no
reason why scores of students who
invariably spend idle, good-for-nothing noon hours, should not take the
trouble to watch this page for news
of the activities scheduled for their
classes, and then go over to the Oym
on the allotted day to work or! their
excess poundage. It's good for you
and It's good for your class spirit.
. . . Now let's go . . . and we do mean
you I
And now, the high muck-a-muck
Sports Editor, having risked his life
and reputation by progressing to the
farthest extremity of the proverbial
limb on the subject of the North
Shore-Varsity grid classic tomorrow,
we are going to deposit ourself ln the
lap of the Gods of Sport and predict
a Thunderbird victory by 15 points
at least ln the Armistice Day McKechnie Cup battle.
SMOKE FROM A RUGHY MANAGER'S PIPE . . . Wll Colledge, scintillating Varsity inside-three who
was Injured last week against West
Van Barbarians, is, still hobbling
around and will probably be out for
at least three more weeks. ... A
recent ineligibility scare concerning
Jim Harmer and Ernie Teagle has
been proved unfounded much to
everyone's delight. . . . Wilf Stokvls
return* to the U.B.C. line-up this
week after a month's lay-off owing
to a broken rib and bruised knee.
. . . Dave Bone ls being sensible about
his three-weeks old concussion, ls
not taking any risks on turning out
before Christmas. . . . Same applies
to Phil Griffin, only not so unreservedly because, after all, didn't he score
the winning try for the Phi Delts ln
their recent Classic battle with the
Zetes? . . . Surprising the turnouts
the frats get for  their games.  . .   .
Varsity's   high   class   brigade   of
puck pursuers Is still fighting valiantly   to   crash   the   local   senior
amateur hockey league In spite of
small turnouts and a distinct feeling  of  apathy  on  the  part  of  the
local puck moguls.
In   the   two   practices   held   so   far
this  year,  some  good   prospects  have
tripped   the   light   fantastics   on   the
steel  blades  for Varsity,  but  most  of
the hickory wlelders are ln  bad condition,   and    signs   of   fatigue    haunt
the   boys  after   the   first   ten   minutes
on   the   ultra   cooled   aqua.
Most of last year's team is out for
the blue and gold, and with two good
goalies in the person of Don Colwell
of Saskatoon, and Bill Benson of
Kimberley guarding the Vnrsity
cage, the opposition should find
trouble piercing the defence of Angl
Provanzano and Jim Harmer which
is   the   best   ill   the   league.
If the U.B.C. team shows e-iough
form In the practice tonight at 8.00
at the Forum, they will be matched
with the Canadians of last year to
see which of the two teams gets Into
a. league with New Westminster and
the Vancouver Dumonts. The game
will probably be played next Tuesday. ;
A full turnout Is requested for i
the practice tonight.                                     ]
Thundering Thunderbirds
Meet Larruping Leos In
Big Four Feature Fixture
Varsity's Hardy Cup Thunderbirds come against their toughest opponents of the current season when they tangle with the
unbeaten North Shore Lions in a crucial game scheduled for
Saturday at Athletic Park.
Injuries to several of the Vnrsity men will give the T.ions
the pre-game nod over the students. Finlay will definitely not
play, and Pearson, Henderson and ap Roberts are all doubtful
starters. Finlay wns knocked cold in the last Husky game in which
Kvnn np Roberts, bnekfleld nee sustained  a sprained ankle.
Once again the Blue and Oold will
run up against a strong passing attack. The Huskies shot their defense
to pieces in the last game wtth passes and the Lions are attributed with
as  good  If  not  better one.
The Varsity backfleld will be met
by the hardest tackling line in the
League, and will have their hands
full trying line-bucks. However, the
student board of strategy Is never
stumped and it is intimated that the
end-run will be emphasized on Saturday with Tommy Williams toting
the ball.
Johnny Pearson, ace booter of the
Vurslty squad, has been out to practices lately despite an infected foot
but it ls doubted that he will be ln
the game on Saturday. The duty of
kicking will fall on Big Aub Gray
and "Hunk" Henderson. "Hunk" has
been practising booting field-goals
all week to make up for the points
he lost ln the two engagements with
the Huskies when he fooled several
easy kicks.
With Finlay and ap Roberts gone
from the backfleld it remains for
Tommy Williams, ghost-runner, to
carry the brunt of the running attack against the Lions. Carrying the

We give you the rugger "piece de
resistance" for the week—U.B.C. vs.
Meralomas. The reason for this burst
of enthusiasm is the way U.B.C. trod
the Grads into so much fertilizer for
our fair campus last week. The
youthful collegians have proven
themselves to be the most Improved
team of the league and after shaking
a bad case of "buck-fever" the boys
are really ready to make a name for
their club.
However, lt will be a dogged battle
all the way. for the Kits club are out
to regain some of their prestige
which suffered a relapse due to defeat administered last week by North
Shore's All Blacks.
The U.B.C. forward wall remains
Intact for this encounter and comprises the following, Jenkins Murray,
Taylor, Wallace, Pyle Davies, Shepherd and Billings. Sandy Lang handles the half duties once more, feeding the passes fast and often to

line-up and the speedy wing adds
that extra attacking touch with

his charges to overcome the Meralomas.

Varsity's men of the grass hockey
pitch take on the Vancouver outfit
on Saturday on their home field. The

their eyes on the championship.
The Varsity line-up will be as follows: Hysler, Byers, Mowatt, Parker,
Thompson, Hutchinson, Cameron.
McGuire, Fargey. Lennox. Kidd.
Williams, and Foley.

the course shown above. Each class can enter as many men as they wish; points will be awarded to all
men  who  finish   the rare;   additional  points will  be  given  tn  I lie  first  thirty  men across the line.
The first three men may be sent to Portland to compete in the Pacific Coast Championships on
November   15.
Meanwhile,   remember   the   date;   Tuesday,   November 8 at  13.45.

bunch of Hillbilly hombres from

from their mountain fastnesses and

The proposed executioners, as you
probably are aware by now, are the
Varsity Thunderbirds, who will arrive at the scene of slaughter replete
with that most potent and famed
weapon of theirs ,a scoring punch.
The mutual operation will be performed ln the form of the second
half of Saturday's rugby double-
header at Brockton Point. And although there ls little indication that
the rugger battle 'will shade the gridders' tussle in interest, nevertheless,
the All-Blacks beat the second-place
Meralomas last week, and would obviously love to give an encore performance this Saturday.
Coach A. B. Carey has announced
further changes in the team for this
week. Wilson Colledge will not be
in the lineup for some time due to
injury, and his place at inside-three
will be taken by the versatile Harry
Lumsden. Ernie Teagle will drop
back to his original place at fullback, while the backfleld will be
completed by Ted McPhee and Basil
Robinson, Tod Tremblay and two
absentees last week, Howie McPhee
and   Captain   Strat  Leggat.
Satisfied with the showing of the
pack ln the recent Barbarian fiasco,
Mr. Carrey will make no changes in
this respect, and ls expected to leave
the forward unit as it is for the
coming Armistice Day McKechnie
