Special Rates
For First Night
Of Barrie Play
A special lot of tickets for Wednesday's performance of "Alice-sit-
by-the-Fire," priced at only 50c, will
be on sale at the Auditorium Box
Office at 3 p.m. Wednesday. As they
are very good seats and limited to
300, it will be advisable to be on
hand early. The Players Club wishes
to emphasize the fact that the first
night here will be just as good a
performance as any other night, because there have been two outside
shows already. All the difficulties
of a first night were overcome by
a very successful opening in the Abbey City, and polished off very
smoothly last night in North Vancouver.
The play has been a great success
wherever shown. It ran for a long
time both in London and New York,
and has appealed to many audiences
since, as being an excellent example
of Barrie's most entertaining and
whimsical style.
It should be of especial Interest to
students who have ever wondered
what the sweet young things and
palpitating swains wore thirty years
ago. Rumours from a reliable source
claim that the costumes worn in 1903,
the period of this play, are not only
very interesting but very beautiful.
The plot of the play Is one that
interests immediately, and by virtue
of its unusualness, holds the Imagination right until  the final  curtain.
Anyone who saw and enjoyed
Barrie's "Dear Brutus" or "Quality
Street" should certainly avail himself of this opportunity to see "Alice
Sit-by-the-Fire," which in the words
of a Westminster critic, is "a good
show, very well produced." March
9, 10, 11, 12, at the University Auditorium.
Chamber Symphony

Elizabethan Model
Of Playhouse
Some students will go to amazing
lengths to avoid the writing of a term
essay in Eng. 9!
Victor Fargi, Arts '32, constructed
a scale model in plaster of Paris of an
Elizabethan Theatre. The model is
some thirty inches square and is
painted white as a protection to the
plaster. Minute attention to detail has
been paid as each slate in the roof is

The Elizabethan theatre varies considerably from the present-day structure of that type, ln that the pit is
open to the weather. The stage protrudes into the pit and is four or five
feet above the level of the pit.
The pit is surrounded on three
sides (only two in the model) by tiers
of balconies; these seats were reserved
for the higher class section of the

Soph Members
For Council
Startling changes in the forms of student government at U.B.C. are understood to have been recommended Council by a committee composed of Senate, Faculty, and Student members
which for some time past has been
investigating methods of student administration on the campus. Though
the report has not been submitted
to Council, it is understood that this
will be done shortly and that a verbatim report will appear in Friday's
Issue of the Ubyssey.
Non-votlng representation on Council for the alumnae and the sophomore class will be among the most
outstanding innovations according to
Jack Thomson, M.U.S. president and
a member of the committee. Two
members of the sophomore class will
be given seats on Council each year,
with all powers save that of the
vote. They will be elected by members of the sophomore, junior and
senior classes. This will be in addition to the present junior member,
as Council will not lose any of its
present members. The alumnae representative will be selected from former members of Council.
Provision will also be made for
the appointment of an Athletic Advisory Board, to foster a uniform
policy for the university in athletic
dealings with outside leagues and
organizations. It is understood that
there will be five members to this
Board, three students, one alumnus,
and one member of the faculty
The principle of paid assistance in
the handling of routine work of student administration Is also endorsed.
Provision Is to be made for continuation of the business manager's post,
under the new name of business secretary.
Members of the committee who investigated student government were
Dean Brock and Professor Buck, representing tho faculty; Arthur Lord
and Sydney Anderson, both former
Students' Council members who represented Senate; and Dorothy Myers
and Jack Thomson as student members.
Seniors are requested to pay
their class fees immediately to
Alex Fisher, Murray Garden,
Ian Campbell, H. Detwtller,
Nell Monroe, or Bert Falls.
They must be paid this week If
the members wish to attend
Graduating Functions. A table
will be placed In the north end
of thc Arts Building.

Give Platforms
Candidates for President A.M.S. Speak
to Students Friday Noon. Brown's
Platform  Based  on  "Dignified
Publicity" - Whimster Stresses
Previous Council Experience
William Whimster and Brent
Brown, candidates for the position
of President of the A.M.S., presented
their "platforms" Friday noon in the
auditorium before a large audience.
Earl Vance was in the chair and reminded the students that they were
all expected to vote for their representatives  on  next  year's  Council
"In accepting nomination for the
office of President I was motivated
by the fact that I felt that action
must be used in the solution of our
problems," declared Brent Brown,
first candidate to speak. "My chief
purpose shall be to carry on in a
practical way the work begua by
the Publicity Committee this -year."
He went on to say that Council
should take the Initative and lay
facts concerning U.B.C. before the
people of the Province In "a dignified manner" Further, the candidate
considered that the university should
form "closer and more cordial relations with the business and social Interests in the city." Brown added that the Alumni should be
brought into closer association with
the student body through the medium of Council.
William Whimster, putting his case
before the student body, declared that
it is easy to make promises ln ones
platform speeches which cannot later
be kept. He therefore made no
statements which it would be impossible to carry out.
During his year on Council,
Whimster had watched for weak
points in student self-government
with a view to correcting them should
he be elected President.
Speaking about the rigid economies
to be effected during the coming
session, Whimster maintained that
only a man with experience and
knowledge of the way in which
money was spent during the past
year would be in a position to curtail expenditures in an equitable
manner. An incoming president
without such knowledge or experience would be at a serious disadvantage, for there will be no time for
him to adjust himself to conditions,
declared the candidate.
"The stadium question has, of nac-
essity, become a dead issue," said
Whimster, "but I Intend to see "that
the athletic field be fit for games by
next fall. Bonds may have to be
issued, and here again my knowledge
of finances will come in useful."
The chief speakers were followed
by supporters, Rhuna Osborne and
Don McDiarmid for Brown, Mary
Fallis and Frank McKenzie for
Faculty Backs
Council Action
In Chodat Case
Louis Chodat, second year Arts student who was fined $5.00 by Students'
Council for refusing to comply with
the regulation which prohibits a student from playing for other than University teams while registered at the
institution, has been suspended from
the University by Faculty Council for
one day and until he presents Council
with an "undertaking" that he will
henceforth abide by the regulations of
the Alma Mater Society executive.
Chodat was prevented from taking
part in college athletics by the eligibility rules now in force. He signed
on for basketball and English rugby
teams not affiliated with tiie University. When the student's action was
brought to the attention of Students'
Council that body warned him and
when he declined to comply with the
regulation anent playing for "outside"
teams imposed a fine of $5.00 which
Chodat declined to pay.
Last Saturday Students' Council
brought the matter to the attention
of the Faculty Committee on Student
Affairs and through that body to
Faculty Council. Members of the latter
council considered the case with the
result that a letter was sent to Chodat
suspending him from the University
for one day, March 8, and until he
Lee Stars For Varsity—Harvey Mclntyre Is
High Scorer With 12 Points
Completely outclassed, Varsity Senior "A" hoop squad
bowed to Adanacs on the Royal City floor by 40-21 last night.
The first half featured one of the most sensational rallies
ever staged by a Blue,and Gold squad. Starting on the short
end of an 11-2 count midway through the period Varsity fought
d'Easum, Shiles and Mclntyre were
doing plenty of rushing themselves,
Varsity "blew" completely and Harvey
Mclntyre took advantage of an "on"
night to drop three pretty baskets.
The big floor seemed to hinder rather
than help the students, their checks
running almost at random to every
corner of the floor that they know
so well. Doug Fraser, announced as
being out of the game for the rest of
the season, went on against doctor!
orders and played bang-up ball. He
got a big hand from the crowd when
he left the floor. Varsity just couldn't
get going in spite of the fact that
Coach Henderson kept substituting
men. Cy Lee led the University scorers with 8 points and Dougle Mclntyre
contributed five. Bob Osborno was_off
form and Pi Campbell couldn't hit
tne~sensatlonal pace that he flashed
Saturday night. For the Adanacs,
Harvey Mclntyre did aU the damage.
The ex-Crusader contributed twelve
their way up to within one point of
the Adanacs.' Cy Lee once again
carved a niche in the Hall of Fame
with his sensational long shot that
dropped. Doug Mclntyre scored on a
free throw and Lee came right back
with another long one and a second
later dropped in a beautiful overhead
shot. The rally ended with the score
13-12 for Adanacs as the half-time
whistle blew.
Varsity went out on the floor ln the
second half with the idea of rushing
the Adanacs off their feet but Fraser,
Competition is taking an erratic
course ln Council elections this year,
for at the time of going to press
there were two acclamations, while
the Men's Undergraduate seat on
Council has five contenders, with
the possibility of the defeated presidential candidate swelling the list.
The acclamations as they stood
Monday evening were, Tony Osborne
for Men's Athletic Association, and
Mark Collins for Treasurer.
Clare Donaldson and Milton Owen
are opposing each other for the Junior Members' berth on Council. Donaldson has held the position since
November of this year, and has
proved his worth. Owen has guided
the destinies of the Sophomore class
for the past year from the presidential seat.
The fight amongst Dorothy Thompson, Esme Thompson, and Emma Wilson promises to be the battle of the
century. All three contestants are
well known on the campus. Esme
and Dorothy have been running neck
and neck for two positions during
the past few years. Esme won in
both cases when she got the Vice-
pi esidency of Arts '33 jn her sophomore year, and when she was elected Secretary of the Womens' Undergraduate Society
M.U.S. provides the greatest number of candidates, almost equalling
the record of seven established last
year in the L.S.E. race.
Doug Brown, Ken Campbell, Don
Davidson, R. V. McLean and Victor
Rogers are definitely in the race at
the time of going to press. Both candidates for the presidency of the A.M.S.
have expressed themselves as intending to run for the position in the
event of their defeat. So there will
probably be seven names on the
M.U.S. ballot today week.
Doug Brown was president of the
Freshman class, and has shown an
active interest in student affairs during his sojourn here. Ken Campbell
leaped to fame when he was appointed chairman of the Finance
committee of the Student Publicity
Bureau. Don Davidson has held
class executive positions for at least
two years. R. V. McLean who hails
from Victoria, was president of the
Alma Mater Society of Victoria College last year. Rogers was treasurer
for his class last year and occupies
the same position for the Science
Undergraduate Society this session.
Election meetings will be held Friday, and candidate platforms will
be published in this paper on that
date. Polling will be Tuesday, March
15 from 10 to 4.
Voting for President of the A.M.S.
takes place today ln the Council
room starting at 10 a.m. and ending
at 4:00 p.m. Results will be announced as soon as the scrutineers
have finished the counting of ballots.
should furnish Students' Council with
an "undertaking" that he would abide
by its regulations.
It is expected that Chodat will pay
the fine and thus become automatically reinstated,
The aims and program of the Nationalists in China were outlined by
Dr. Chu at his home on Friday to
interested members of the Pacific
Area Group.
Foreign concessions, unequal treaties, and extra-territorial rights, the
speaker said, were at the root of the
movement (in China) which has
overthrown the old order. It is the
aim of the Rejuvenation Society of
China to save the country by stabilizing its government, abolishing unequal treaties, and securing for her
equality among nations.
The program included two definite
stages as preparation for the ultimate aim of true democracy. The military period was necessary to remove
reactionary forces which stood In the
way of unity. By 1928 China was
united under one flag and the second stage could be inaugurated. This
i* the period of tutelage In preparation for democracy. Three main
principles are'stressed In the education of the masses, stated the speaker, which already show gratifying
results—the people's nationalism,
people's rights, and the people's livelihood. These efforts in education
are accompanied by a reconstruction
program in the realization of which
the province of Canton takes a decided hand.
The achievements of the nationalist movements are already in part
apparent. A republic is established,
some concessions have been returned
and some extra-territorial rights have
been relinquished. China's place
among the nations is also gradually
being recognized.
College Art Club
Sponsors Display
of French Prints
The second art exhibition during the
present session will be held in the
Faculty Room of the Library building for one week starting Monday
next, March 14.
Like the exhibition of Modern
American Paintings, held in the beginning of the year, this exhibition is
made possible by the kindness of the
College Art Association, of New York.
It will consist of 100 Modern French
Prints, representing about seventy
artists. The work of many of the best-
known artists will be found in thia
collection, including Matisse, Besnard,
Derain, Gauguin, Laboeureur, Gustav
Pierre, Picasso, and Roualt .Representations of the work of these ,and other
much-discussed modernists, will give
everybody interested an opportunity
to know something of what the moderns in France are attempting and
doing. Page Two

Council's right to enforce fines for breaches
of its regulations, even though these are riot
by-laws, has been upheld by Faculty Council.
That body has suspended a student; not for
playing for outside teams or otherwise infringing upon the rules of the Alma Mater Society,
but for failing to comply with Student Council's
Fines have been imposed and collected in
the past but there has always been a popular
belief that it would have been difficult to enforce the penalties if the affected students had
chosen to protest the case. Now a definite precedent has been established and Faculty has
shown its willingness to back up student government in the exercise of its authority.
Student sympathy in the present case has
been largely with the offender. This is only
natural. Any group of the public is usually
"agin' the government," people like to see
officials placed in a tight corner; moreover the
particular case looked like pretty hard luck
for the delinquent student. However, no thinking member of the student body can fail to see
the desirability, both of having a definite precedent established in a case such as this and in
the indication that Council has a good deal of
enforceable authority.
The strongest point of criticism of U. B. C.
student government has always been that it is
lacking in real power. The Chodat case has
proved that the Alma Mater Society executive
is fully capable of enforcing the regulations
which it sees fit to make. The result should
have a beneficial psychological effect on Councillors present and future; and, coming as it
does, so close to student elections, it should
have the effect of making the Varsity electorate
think carefully before they cast their votes.
Wednesday evening the opening curtain will
rise on the eighteenth successive public performance of the University Players' Club.
Contrary to the usual custom, a graduate
of the University, and a former member of the
club is directing the production. For this reason
alone, the play should be well worth seeing.
There are other reasons just as cogent.
It represents the culmination of some ten
weeks work on the part of eleven members of
the cast and some thirty committee members;
work done at considerable sacrifice to personal
pleasure and academic work.
Already the play has been presented to the
public twice, New Westminster and North
Vancouver having been the places chosen. This
vitiates the criticism so often levelled at amateur dramatic productions, that the first night
is really "dress rehearsal night."
The play, Alice-Sit-By-The-Fire, is by one
of the better known present-day authors, Sir
James M. Barrie, who was knighted for his
work in connection with the Birmingham
Repertory Theatre. Few people have been
knighted for dramatic work, and the play
should be interesting if only from that viewpoint.
After seeing athletes running in the interclass track meet, election candidates running
for Council positions, and the government running away with the grant it should be quite a ,
relief to watch Alice sit by the fire. |

It's not always the "fast" man who wins the

After the appearance of my recent sermon
a friend said she hrid read an article that
seemed to "hit off" modern life very well. It
discussed the prevalence of the
The Cult of      cult of the "low brow."
the Low Brow      In Harper's Magazine this
month there is a similar article
by Alice Beal Parsons on, "Shair We Make
Our Children Commonplace?" The writer discusses, incidentally, the two secret societies
that existed in her college. Membership was
considered tremendously desirable but only
ten were admitted each year. "On the whole,
however, we tried to choose our members
solely on the basis of personal merit, since we
had an exaggerated sense of the sanctity of
our vows and the importance of bur society,
and since we respected ourselves . . . Yet the
first time I sat in on the weighty deliberations
of member choosing I was astonished at the
triumph of the commonplace. One contrary
vote constituted a blackball, and every girl
of real distinction fell under it. Only the most
rounded, curved and unremarkable personalities could survive the rejection powers of
twenty critics. If there had been more societies
in the college, if intellectual eminence had had
more respect there, we might have been forced,
as many, perhaps most, societies are, to admit
a few really distinguished girls ln order to
maintain our standing. As it was we could be
as mediocre and complacent as we chose."
My sorority and fraternity friends will
pardon the digression, as it is not entirely
Irrelevant. The conclusion of the article is the
most important part: "The parents, I insist, are
chiefly to blame, though it is only fair to take
into account that many of them have been overawed by the newer education's insistence on
the importance of social adaptation, and many
more have yielded to the current craze of
seeming duller than we are. The latter is a
mildly amusing sport for adults; it is a dangerous one for children, who may end by being
as dull as they try to appear to be. It is an
even more dangerous sport for civilization. In
fact it is one of the incomprehensible things
that are continually astonishing the student of
history, that the current vogue of emptyhead-
edness should come at the precise moment
when man needs all the intelligence he can
muster if he is to save his civilization from

is required by such an undertaking. The players
will provide a finished performance and deserve
full support from the student body. Alice will

In Saturday's "Province" The Greater Vancouver Health League had a detailed warning
about smallpox and the need for vaccination.
It was high time such an article
Vaccination      appeared. The press has been
flooded with anti-vaccination
propaganda lately—most of it nonsense. The
Health League's article provided an intelligent,
reasonable reply. It should be remembered that
the epidemic is not yet over. "Staying at home
will not protect you. 'Pure' blood will not
protect you. Vaccination will."

The Editor,
Dear Sir:
A special appeal to the sportsmanship of the students should be made
now that the janitorial staff is to
be cut down. For the number of
carelessly thrown papers, cigarette
butts, empty boxes, etc., distributed
around the campus creates much unnecessary work. Surely when so
many baskets are placed about the
campus, very slight effort is required
to assist these hard-working broom-
wielders Give them a real break for
the rest of their term. Use the
waste-containers. Some sort of recognition of their work and a sign
of appreciation from the students
would be thus easily demonstrated
by a little co-operation.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of
the Muck-a-Muck party. We noticed last issue that the editors
had come out with the annual Warning as to how to vote.
We are sure that all thinking people will admit that this
is the wrong method. Dear me (or rather "Dear us") what
would happen if everybody intellectually applied their brains
to the business of voting. No good would come of it. If you
didn't elect handsome councillors, you co-eds, you would probably be railroaded out of the annual dances. And another thing,
you can see a man's face, but you can't see his mind. Note the
broad smile, indicating generosity, light heartedness and all that
sort of thing, in the face of Mr. Co-Co.
His platform flows naturally from that benign face. Note
also the broad bulging forehead of Mr. Medley. Just think of
the brain oozing around behind those ears.
Do not let others influence you in voting—take our word
for it.
Muck-a-Muck has great pleasure in sponsoring the nomination of the following candidates:
For the Pres. A.M.S.—R. W. McGoofus.
For the Secretary of the A.M.S.—Oscar Scribblewell.
For the Treasurer of the A.M.S.—Sitting Bull.
For the President of the M.U.S.—Co-Co.
For the job of Junior Member—Darnold Anderson.
For the Pres. of Women's Athletics—Sinjin Medley.
For the Women's Undergrad.—"Ethel."
Who'll Get In?
"Roof" Himself
The results of today's as well as next week's elections are
open to conjecture but we feel confident that come what may,
McGoofus and his family will climb the Council steps next
year. Sitting Bull has excellent chances of copping the
Treasurer's seat while Sinjin Medley will probably fall into the
position of President of Womens' Athletics. The scene above
shows a few of the candidates who are looking for a coat-hook
in the council room. The chickens (sorority women) although
they look to be in a wonderful position for sneaking under the
fence, will have a hard time getting through.
Dr. Pilcher—I know he's with
bed people anyway, he's done

interesting facts about his son who

Canadian Champs Take Opening
Game of Lower Mainland Series
As Adanacs Wilt in Final Canto
Varsity Hoopsters Show Wonderful Condition to Beat Vancouver
and District Winners 30-20 in Big Contest—Adanacs Protest When Students Use Ten Players
In a steady attack that laid a barrage of shots on the op-^
posing basket for the entire second half, the University of
B.C. Senior Basketball squad on Saturday night proved to the
hoop fans of the Lower Mainland that it is ready to defend the
Dominion championship to the last ditch by defeating the New
Westminster Adanacs 30-20 in the first of the playoff series
at the Varsity gym. Before the speedy offensive of the Blue
and Gold youngsters, the veteran Royal City cagers wilted
badly. At no time during the second frame were Vancouver
and District League winners in the picture, and the students
pounded the backboard throughout the canto.
Following the contest, the Adanacs compllshed  an  outstanding feat  by
sinking four successive foul shots to
With Stu Keate
filed a protest with the executive of
the Lower Mainland Basketball association on the grounds that tho collegians used ten men in the fixture.
The Varsity hoop officials state that
the number of players Is not limited
under the constitution, and are not
particularly worried about the outcome.
It took the cage artists from West
Point Grey just twenty minutes to
hit their stride. For most of the
opening stanza they wandered around
the floor luce a bunch of kids at a
Sunday School picnic, but in the
second period the boys hit their
stride In no uncertain fashion. On
a shot that was identical with the
toss that brought him fame in the
final game of the Canadian playoffs
a year ago, Cy Lee, the diminutive
forward started the Varsity rally. It
was a fitting climax to Cy's return
to the ranks of the "Eligibles" and
the dark-haired star received a big
hand for the effort.
Throughout the first half, the students were busy losing the nervousness caused by lack of competition
tills season, while the Adanacs had
little difficulty in getting under way.
Bob Osborne opened the scoring In
the first minute following a smart
play. Gifford evened things with a
nice long shot but Doug Mclntyre
put the collegians ahead once more.
Then the Royal City squad went in
to take the lead and by half time
had garnered a 10-7 advantage.
Just after the interval, Cy Lee
broke into the corner, took a pass
and scored on a perfect shot. Not
to be outdone Doug Mclntyre returned a minute later to make the
most of another long one and the
students were out in front. Once
again it was tied up at 12-12, but
from then on the collegians romped
ahead.     Captain  Bob   Osborne  ac-
boost the Varsity total by just that
many points. Pi Campbell showed
of his old form to garner
points  in  the  contest,   while
Mclntyre added another six.
battle was one that matched
and youth against experience
and old age, but the students also
showed some experience which just
about made up the difference in the
scoring column. Bob Osborne was
In the game at all times. He was
particularly safe on rebounds while
his offensive play was beyond reproach. Jimmy Bardsley, making his
debut in senior company played like
a veteran during the period he was
in the 'game, and Laurie Nicholson

job of holding the redoubtable Max
The teams:

High School
Track Stars
Compete Here
A meeting of the track club will be
held at noon today ln Arts 108. As
there Is some very Important business
to be considered all members are
asked to attend.
Varsity track men will start their
second week of competition when on
Wednesday the students oppose a
strong team consisting of Technical
and Britannia High Shool stars.
Last fall a meet with the scholastic
stars was scheduled but was subsequently called off when the weather
conditions Interfered.
Included ln the imposing list of
athletes that the two high schools
have lined up are McComber and
Burritt. McComber who clears slightly better than six feet in the high
jump is considered an excellent prospect for this season's Olympic Games.
He also haa made eleven feet in the
pole vault. Burritt is also a vaulter
of note, apd the pair should put on
an excellent exhibition In this event.
The Varsity squad will be composed
of the pick of the athletes that were
entered in the Inter-faculty fixture
last week, and the boys will be out
to add to the number of new marks
Blue and Gold
Blanks Cougars
By 6 to 0 Score
Varsity Senior City grid boys
splashed their way to a 6-0 victory
over Cougars, and a third share in
the top berth of the league on the
Varsity Oval Saturday afternoon.
They are now tied with V.A.C. and
Meralomas, each team having won
two games and dropped one.
Joe Dwyer, Varsity's star halfback, plunged five yards through the
Cougar line for the only touchdown
of the game in the first quarter. The
touchdown was not converted. Varsity scored again in the second quarter when Rush kicked for a rouge,
making   the   tackle.
The Varsity line worked well, with
O'Smith the outstanding man. The
backfield were seriously handicapped
by the condition of the field and the
slippery ball but, with the exception
of a few fumbles, they turned in a
nice performance.
Jack Steele again gave a pretty
exhibition of how kicks should be
run back. The Cougar ends found
him very elusive.
The Cougars proved to be a game
lot of boys but they could not pick
any holes in the Varsity stonewall
and did not once come within striking distance of the Varsity line.

Phae Van Dusen
And K. Atkinson
Win in Badminton
Varsity's annual badminton tournament was successfully played off
last week. The handicap events
were scrapped owing to the few entries received, but all the open
events were run off according to
schedule, and in these competition
was extremely keen. After the preliminary rounds only the "B" team
members remained in each event
and, as these were well-matched, the
following games were necessarily
Phae Van Dusen was recrowned
ladies' champion when she downed
Irene Ramage, her old rival, in
straight sets. Then these two co-ed
stars partnered together and overcame the Hope—Margaret Palmer
combination to take the doubles title.
In the best match of the entire tournament Ken Atkinson and Ian
Campbell triumphed over Terry
Holmes and Paul Kozoolin in three
exciting sets. Play was of a high
order in this encounter and the new
champions certainly deserved their
victory As was generally expected,
the mixed doubles fell to Phae Van
Dusen and Ken Atkinson, who beat
Irene Ramage and Terry Holmes in
the finals.
Ken Atkinson, who played finely
throughout, created the one great
upset of the tournament when he
hung up a convincing victory at the
expense of Paul Kozoolin, the B. C.
Junior Champion, who had beaten
him in the provincial encounter. Atkinson routed his adversary to the
tune of 15-4 in the opening set and
was leading 8-4 in the second, when
Kozoolin changed his tactics, and
forced the play to take the set 15-9.
With the score at 4-all In the deciding set, Atkinson took up the offensive and playing steadily, ran up
11 points to his opponent's 5, to take
the game, the match and the title.
Atkinson thus made a "perfect score"
in this tournament, winning all the
events he could enter for. His splendid performance, however, was
equalled by fair Phae Van Dusen in
the ladies' section. The respective
champions are to be highly complimented on their outstanding
A miss with a mission often looks
for a man with a mansion.
Following the decisive 30-20 defeat
which the Blue and Gold hoopsters
handed the New Westminster Adanacs, the Royal City team filed a protest with the Lower Mainland Basketball association on the grounds that
the collegians had used ten men in
the fixture.
* *   »
And we take this opportunity of
showing our appreciation of Doug
Fraser, former skipper of the Adanacs
and one of the most popular basketball players In British Columbia, who
announced that he would sever connections with the New Westminster
quintette If the result of the contest
was protested. Probably no one In
the Royal City would like to see the
hoys from the banks of tho Fraser
cop the Lower Mainland series more
than Doug, and the fact that his sportsmanship ranks above his desire to
win speaks immeasurably for the
spirit that the famous star puts in
the game.
• •   •
It's a tough break to win one title
and drop another that you expect to
cop, but It's pretty low In sport etiquette to protest on a mere technicality which in no way affectes the
outcome of the game, providing of
course that Varsity was technically
wrong in using ten men, which is
doubtful. Adanacs lost the game on
Saturday night because they were
not as good as the hustling students
from U. B. C, and the fact that an-
oiher player went Into the fixture
in the last minute of play had no
bearing   on  the   final   result.
Heah Is the announcement you
have been waiting for! While Varsity was piling up 30 points In Saturday night's game the Adanacs,
twice Canadian champions, were held
to 20 points, no more, no less. Greatly
reminiscent of the rally that they
flashed in the historic St. Catherines game last April was the spurt
that put Varsity on top Saturday
night. With each basket 400 leather-
lined students lungs shook the rafters of the building which they themselves built and out of which they
hope to produce another Dominion
Championship team.
»   «   *
Cy Lee's appearance on the floor
was enthusiastically greeted by the
student supporters. Cy was kept in
suspense until a few hours before
the game but his Impromptu jig
dance while the boys were warming
up left no doubt as to his reactions
to the whole situation.
«.   •   •   •
Doug Mclntyre, diminutive guard,
played all but two minutes of the
game and checked Chick Hood, the
flashy Adanac forward, to a standstill. Doug handed the onlookers a
laugh early in the first period: Hood
was dribbling down the right side of
the floor and Dougle yelled "Hood's
my man and he's got me beaten."
Although Hood did score on that
play Doug kept the Indian sign on
him for the rest of the night and
the number of points the Adanac got
was about one-half the size of that
hat that doesn't fit you.
«   «   •
Pi Campbell never went better than
he did ln the second half. Time and
again PI worked In under the Adanac basket to convert shots with
half the opposing team hanging on
him Bob Osbore pildd up most of
his points by means of free shots.
He didn't miss one all night.
• •   »
On one free shot awarded Bill Gifford the crowd hooted the decision
so long that play was suspended.
"Jit" Lewis and Tony Mclntyre were
none too popular with the students.
• •   •
Jimmy Bardsley was almost as
nonchalant as Eddie Armstrong while
he was on. While an Adanac was
attempting a free throw Jimmy
moved from his position along the
foul line to stand directly behind
Max Shiles, the husky captain of
the New Westminster crew. Shiles
turned, saw Jimmy, and tried to
bluff him into believing he was all
out of place. Jimmy didn't budge
an inch and when the ball came
down he was on the Adanac captain
like a flash.
• •   •
To Harvey Mclntyre, ex-Crusader,
goes the prize "boner" of the evening. With the ball in his possession
and no-one within twenty-five feet
of him the Big Shot walked around
underneath the Varsity basket and
of course the referee called "steps."
Adding insult to injury, Cy Lee took
the ball from the throw-In, raced
down to the foul-line and dropped
a pretty loop shot. Now Mclntyre's

a comeback, bringing the pill well
into Victorian ground. Then Campbell Forbes, husky Island citizen, made
a spectacular 75 yard run to touch
the leather down behind the Blue-
and-Gold line. He converted the
try from a wide angle, bringing the
tally to 5-0.
The remaining ten minutes saw
play mostly In Point Grey territory,
and when half time sounded the students were hard pressed.
Canto the second commenced with
a Victorian sally soon checked by
Blue-and-Golds, and for a while
neither side had the advantage.
Slowly Varsity fought her way to
enemy ground and succeeded In
keeping the "crowd" on both his feet
by almost going over. Victorian defense was too strong, however, and
soon Varsitymen were fighting on
their own two-bit line . They suc-
and beat them back to mid-field until a Capital City attack once more
shoved  them backwards.
Back came the ball to centre and
was slowly worked into enemy lines
only to be shot back. When this
process had been repeated half-a-
dozen times, Victoria's threes took
to their heels and producing a flashy
brand of rugby, garnered their last
three points. Warnock was responsible for this try, which went unconverted.
Kicking off with determination and
ten minutes to go, Varsity's forwards
dribbled the pigskin right down to
the Islanders' five yard area and got
a penalty. From thirty yards out,
Art Murdoch made a grand kick
which was chalked up as the sole
Point Grey score.
Encouraged by their success, the
students pressed hard round the opposing 25 yard area giving the Victorians a real fight, but they were
repulsed and the game closed inside
Point Grey's defence zona. Score, 8-3.
Early in the game, Brian Hunnlngs
of Victoria suffered a broken leg,
and Bill Hall received a pedal injury,
both teams playing one man short
till the end. Hall was replaced at
full-back by Art Mercer. Later Murdoch took the post, and exhibited a
spectacularly fine brand of rugby, as
did Chris Dalton. Capt. Dick Nixon,
Dave Ellis and Derry Tye were also
noteworthy  players.

Victoria—Bryden, Hunnings, Skill-
ings, Engleson, Patrick, Brown, Murray Donaldson Porteous King, Bruce,

Comments from Here and There
on Intet'Class Sports
Science '34 won the right to play
in the finals when they beat Arts
'32 by the slim margin of 21-20. Both
teams realized what was at stake
and were out to win from the first
tip-off. The referee was blind to a
lot of rough play that was handed
out by every one on the floor. The
game was exciting throughout and
was anybody's game until the final
toot of the whistle.
It took Science '33 two overtime
periods to defeat Science '32 by a
score of 16-12. Everyone on the
floor played like Trojans and tne
game  was  one   of   those   that   are
tough to lose and good to win.
