Literature of
Decade Heard
Works of Modern Writers Show
Feeling of Despair Say
Letters Club
"In practicaUy aU the novels of the
WHO'S, and particularly in those of
the EngUsh authors, there is behind
the story itself the feeling of dissast-
Isfactlon and despair," said Agnes
Davie in a paper on "The Development of the Modern Novel from 1920
to 1930," before the Letters Club at
the home of Mrs. R. L. Reid Tuesday night.
Speaking on the works ot H. O.
Wells, John Galsworthy, and Arnold
Bennett, Miss Davie referred to Wells
as an innovator as contrasted with
the later two whom she described ss
maintaining the old traditions and
conaoUdating the English novel on its
Victorian foundations.
"The scourgers and scavengers of
society," waa the epithet which the
speaker applied to Aldous Huxley
and D. H, Lawrence. "It is the interior life—the life of the mind, and
that part of Ufe in which moral principle operates—that interests Huxley
more than the external life where
class clashes with class. There never
was a more overwhelming tract for
tho times' than his 'Point Counter
Point.' Compered with it Bunyan'a
'PUgrim's Progress' is a sunny romance," she continued.
Referring to Lawrence, the paper
declarde that his one persistent purpose was to revolutionise the modern
attitude towards sex. "The conflict
between man and woman, peculiar to
his books, is a conflict based largely
upon the Idea that civilized woman
has become essentiaUy the antagonist
of man," stated Miss Davie.
Virginia Woolf and James Joyce
she considered to be the main developers of the psychological novel,
but she pointed out the contrast between the world of sunshine of Miss
Woolf's books and the world of drab-
ness and gloom of those of Joyce.
The second part of thc paper dealt
with the American novelists—Including Sinclair Lewis, Theodore Dreiser,
Ernest Hemingway, and Willa Cather. In addition to Miss Davie's paper, E. L. Yeo of the Graduate Letters club read part of a paper on
the war novelists.

Oceangvaphic Chemistry was the
subject of an address given to the
Chemistry Society on Wednesday afternoon by Dr. Neal Carter of the
Pacific Biological Station at Nanalmo.
Dr. Carter was a student at this University in its old Fairview days.
In opening his address, Dr. Carter
stated that the work carried on by
both his station and those of a similar nature at Prince Rupert and the
San Juan Islands was chiefly of an
analytical nature. H« iUustrated the
use of the "bottle" and the thermometer by which the salinity and the
temperature of the sea-water at different depths are recorded.
By means of charts, Dr. Carter
demonstrated the average mineral
and salt content in the sea-water,
stating that the minute animal and
vegetable forms of life in the water
existed chiefly upon these minerals
and salts which are found in extremely small quantities. He also
stated that enormous quantities of
gold are contained in sea-water, but
the cost of extraction ia too great to
make the knowledge of any use as
Dr. Carter performed several experiments to show the various reactions used to determine these contents, He said that the work of the
station also Included the testing of
various products of the fishing industry.
A hearty vote of thanks was tendered to Dr. Carter at the close of
the meeting.

Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays and
Thursdays from 1 to 3 in AppUed
Science 100, and on Wednesdays from
2 to 4 in the Auditorium. The rehearsals will be arranged to suit the
lecture-hours of the players as much
as possible. Please turn out to as
many practises as possible and watch
the notice boards for further announcements.

Many detractors of the University have been in the habit of
declaring that the majority of
our graduates are lost to the
country through removal to the
United States. Latest figures issued by the registrar are a distinct refutation of this idea.
There are 1273 graduates resident in Vancouver, 701 in other
parts of British Columbia, 122
in other provinces of Canada.
174 in the United States, 22 in
the British Isles, 2 in Australia,
one in India, 3 in South Africa,
4 in France, 2 in South America,
5 in TChina, 8 in Japan, and 6
in other countries.
There are 34 deceased and 238

These figures should be cogent proof that British Columbia gains the majority of the
benefit from its own University.

an organization for BasketbaU publicity was discussed.
The Canadian Club has advised
Students' Council that any student

it would be well worth their while

McMaster Addresses Club As
Races Combine to Discuss
Mutual Problems
"The forming of this club represents an endeavour to encourage intellectual and social intercourse between the various races to be found
on the campus," were the words of
an opening address delivered by R.
McMaster, president of the newly
formed Cosmopolitan Club. The
group of twenty-five oriental and occidental students gathered yesterday
noon to elect the club's officers and
decide on a policy to be followed
during the year's activities.
The meeting was opened by Andy
Broatch who, acting as chairman,
conducted the election of officers. He
stated that those who were connected
with the Pacific Area Conference
which convened three years ago under the auspices of the S.C.M. wished
to carry on the work started at that
A candidate for each office was
suggested by a nominating committee formed last week. A motion that
the suggested candidates bo appointed
to office was passed unanimously by
the meeting. Bob McMaster was elected preaident, Rose Chu, vice president; F. Ouchi, secretary-treasurer;
C. Chave, pubUcity; Ruth Abbot and]
Sarah Chan, membership committee
At this point the newly elected
president took the chair. He explained that the Pacific Area Conference, composed of representatives
of several races from ell the leading
Canadian universities had dealt with
problems which face the countries
bordering on the Pacific Ocean, especially those problems which concern the Japanese, Chinese and Hindu
children bom on this continent.
"As a result of this conference there
has been in existence the past two
years the Pacific Area Committee, a
group of students interested especially in the study of Oriental culture.
In order to aUow a greater number
of students to take part in similar
discussion this year w« have decided
to form a Cosmopolitan Club." He
pointed out that there were organizations of a similar nature in connection with some of the American
It was decided not to restrict membership to a set number. The business of drawing up a constitution and
arranging for programs will be left
in the hands of the executive. It is
planned to have noon hour lectures
every second week and to gather for
an occasional social evening.

S.C.M. Women Plan
Study Programme
The womens' section of the Student's Christian Movement held their
annual reception for new members
Monday evening at the home of Miss
Margaret Stobie. Miss Jean Fraser,
president, Introduced the new members.
Dean Bollert spoke informally on
the place of an organization such as
the S.C.M. on the campus and the
very large though often unconscious
place of the Bible in the literature
and ordinary speech of the English
speaking peoples.
An outline of the winter's program
was then presented. Besides the noon
hour lecture series there will be four
study groups with the following topics and leaders:
Records of the Life of Jesus—Andy
The Social Principle of Jesus —
Frank McKenzie.
International Relations — George
Plans for the last one have not yet
been completed. These will meet for
an hour once a week, the time to be
arranged to suit the students.
Miss Margaret McKinney, travelling secretary for Western Canada,
led the group in a few songs and
then outlined the national organization—its aims and methods. Special
stress was given to the importance of
the study groups not only for the
knowledge gained but for the training in clear concise thinking they

Alma Mater Society. A motion was
made that the tour should be revived,

To Return Oct. 27
Michio Ito Returns On Popular
It will be welcome news to those
who witnessed last Saturday's performance here of Michio Ito, the famous dancer, and his group of gifted
artists—and to those who were unable to attend—that special negotiations have been completed for a return engagement, for one night only,
Friday, Oct. 27, at the Vancouver
Popular demand for another appearance set managerial wheels in
motion since the departure of the
dancers after Saturday's performance
here, for a Western Canadian tour
to Winnipeg. A wire received late
yesterday confirmed completion of
arrangements to enable Ito and his
company to appear here once more,
Oct. 27, before returning south
through the United States with a
heavily booked itinerary.
Since their performance here so
many requests and inquiries have
been received by the local management for a return performance, together with the keen deUght evidenced by the enthusiasm of their
audience here, there is every reason
to anticipate that a capacity audience
will be there when the famous
dancer and his associates return to
the GranvUle street playhouse to delight with the beauty of their vivid
and wholly fascinating art.
Old PoUcy Revived
MUton Owen announced the reviva
of the old policy ot holding separate
faculty balls. It was felt, however,
that due to the curtaUed social program the Aggies would have to unite
with either Science or Arts.
Considerable discussion ensued before a final agreement was reached.
Roy McConnachle expressed the diehard Science desire for a baU tor
themselves alone. The Aggies were
informed quite definitely that they
were not wanted. Herb Sladen advocated a more friendly attitude by the
Sciencemen towards the Aggies.
Open Arms
Ernest Brown, speaking for Arts,
'embraced the Aggies with open amis,'
and suggested that the decision Should

Dick Locke, speaking for Agriculture, declared that his faculty was

The attitude evinced by a majority of the
Science faculty towards the Aggies at the last
Alma Mater meeting was not commendable.
Although faculty loyalty is an excellent thing
in itself, the 'dog in the manger* attitude adopted appeared in an unpleasant light.
The Aggies were in the unhappy position of
throwing themselves upon the tender mercies
of either Arts or Science in the matter of a
The thought of -contaminating the pristine
purity of a Science function with a few Aggies
seems to have pierced the heart of the Science
executive. Every effort was made to defeat
the proposal. The word was passed around
for the Sciencemen to distribute themselveg
all over the building in order that their vote
would not appear as a solid block.
These wide preparations were hardly necessary. Artsmen were quite willing to unite
with the Aggies and so the controversy ended.
Would it not have been better if the Science-
men had acted as magnanimously?
In spite of the fact that a provincial election
of utmost importance is approaching, there
seems to be a lamentable lack of interest on
the part of the student body in the issues involved.
In the realm of education particularly, the
University should have a particular interest.
All students, whether they have votes or not,
should know what the candidates have to offer.
Some of the recent remarks of the C.C.F.
candidates are rather enlightening, according
to the "Provnce" account. Mr. W. W. Lefeaux
has declared that if his party is returned to
power the provincial educational system will
be revolutionized. Chemistry, algebra, and
geometry are to be discarded and their place
taken in our public and high schools by an intensive study of Karl Marx's Capital. While
undoubtedly Karl Marx was an estimable gentleman, a regimen of his works in our schools
is enough to make even the most adamant
Another C.C.F. candidate, Miss Mildred Osterhout, has publicly declared that any teacher
who refuses to teach Socialism in the schools
will be dismissed. The recalcitrant will first
be given an opportunity to learn the tenets of
the faith in special classes.
If such are the dictatorial principles to be
instituted in our schools, what is to be the fate
of our University? The imagination draws a
happy picture of our learned doctors being instructed in Socialism by a representative of
the West Point Grey C.C.F. club.
Perhaps the departments of Mathematics
and Chemistry will have to go, to be superseded by a department of Marxian Ethics and
Apologetics. What fun we would have!
The magazine room of the Library offers a
service unique in this city. The number of prei-
odicals that line the shelves is only less remarkable than the few students that grace the
tables, casually perusing an occasional magazine for the novelty.

The   Wm.ku 5
Premier Bennett and Lawrence Tibbett
have unconsciously got together on a point regarding education. Both somewhat arbitrarily
condemn universities, on different grounds, it
is true, but when policitians and thespians get
together on something it's time to scoop up an
earful or two of their common meanderings.
A reporter from The Gateway, Alberta's
journalistic effort, seemed to get under Mr.
Bennett's skin, and that was how it all came
out. Mr. Bennett was hurt, not angry, you
understand, but terribly hurt at the suggestion she ventured that Canada might repudiate
her debts. "Young lady," said he on parting,
"you will have to reform your ideas—do you
understand? You—a university student—must
reform your opinions."
"For people who think." Haul this caption
out of its offensive connotation as it decorates
the masthead of a sensational American paper,
and regard its essential meaning. One's opinions are what one thinks, Mr. Bennett's opinions are what he thinks; if you take Mr. Bennett's opinions as your own, you aren't doing
your own thinking, you're harboring some of
Mr. Bennett's thinks. No. We aren't going to
be rude and say that he can't spare them, but
we maintain that universities are for people
who think, and you can draw up your own
Q.E.D.   It's good exercise for you.
Mr. Tibbett's grounds for condemnation were
that it was for many people a waste of time,
as it were, marking time at the starting line for
the hundred yard dash, after the gun has gone.
As far as a thespian career goes, we suppose
he's right.
The point we want to make is, we don't like
anyone to make sweeping statements about us,
me and Arthur, and the moral is when you say
that, smile.
We want to know if you noticed that Arthur
has made the public prints, photographically
speaking. Perhaps you've noticed an appealing photograph of him gracing an advertisement in this week's magazines. It's a profile
view showing his Grecian nose in a new light.
It's captioned, "I too have waterproof whiskers."  I wasn't asked to be in the picture.
The caption explains something. That's
why Arthur's whiskers maintain their pristine
freshness in spite of a perpetual deluge of bitter tears.
True Story
This actually happened, give it credence or
give it not credence. We were coming through
the auditorium hall on Wednesday when some
of the Students Council passed through, among
them one of the female members. A naive
freshette standing by looked awe-struck and
said to a blase sophette, "Who was that lady?"
The blase sophette made an all-embracing
motion with her hand.
"That was no lady," she said. "That's a student."
We give you our word of honour as gentlemen and walri (a questionable plural) that
true or not true we will never report another
joke along those lines.
thought be so completely ignored? Here are
periodicals devoted to every conceivable topic.
Every enthusiasm, every conviction, every
mood, is embodied in the papers which arrive
regularly. It is a liberal education simply to
wander down the row, picking up journal
after journal as their offerings engage the interest.
If this fine collection was in easy access
to the general public, the room would be packed daily by eager readers and the shelves
would appear decidedly naked. Surely the
student body can give the collection the attention it so deserves.
And the next sea-serpent story will essay
from the gullible freshette who witnessed during the recent acquatic festivities the dripping
emergence from the depths of the Lily Pond of
a sheepish faced soph.

Vanity of Vanities
The American college exchange
pap.rs these days are bubbling over
about a beauty contest to select the
most pulchritudinous co-ed in the
United States. The affair is being
sponsored by a magazine entitled
"University" and if we are not mistaken, it is what survives of "College
Humor." Each university selects its
most beautiful, and the photographs
are submitted to the magazine. The
best ones will grace the pages of
"University" for the next few months

lined derby or something.
One tires of hearing about beauty
contests. Why not something new?

The University of Washington Daily
was able to corner Mr. Lawrence
Tibbett for an interview with rather
interesting findings. Their head indicating that Mr. Tibbett finds "College Education Nonsensical," was
rather misleading since nothing in
the article seems to indicate that he
He said, "Ths weakness of coUeges
and universities Is that they take one
out of real life and one loses contact with what are supposed to be
his elms." He felt that a coUege education was more of a drawback than
an advantage to n singer, because it
delayed his start in a musical career
by several valuable years.
He got off one rather good platitude in this statement: "If people
are bored in their work they are confessing their own weakness, for only
the boring are bored." This brightness was somewhat marred by a subsequent remark which smacks of an
old bromide, "Young people are
grand and this generation is straight
thinking and liberty loving."

Campuscope, a column feature of
the Queen's University Journal, presents an amusing article entitled
"Mouth Breathing." It is too long
to reprint in full, but sample extracts follow below:
"The open mouth signifies many
things, among them oratorical propensities, idiocy, adenoids, and the
desire to display good teeth, all of
which are quaUties to be deplored."
"An open face has been denounced
as inimical to health as weU as to
reputation and good appearance. A
late Canadian Lancet carries on article by Catlin, describing a book
published in 1861, which bears the
title, 'Shut Your Mouth and Save

might conjecture on reading the

It must be understood, however, that
a system of this nature can operate
only with the wholehearted support
of the student body and particularly
of the members of the senior years.
If at any time it is found that this
system will not work as formulated it
is understood that some form of police
organization wlU be constituted to
enforce compUance with the above
mentioned rules and regulations.
2. finance
Owing to further decrease in the
size of the student body it will be
necessary to pursue a poUcy of economy, more rigid than any put into
effect heretofore. It is the feeUng
of the Students' Council that if it is
possible aU actlviUes carried on in
the name of the Society should be
continued, but it also takes cognizance
of the fact that it may be necessary
to effect some curtailment which may
cause the elimination of some organizations. Throughout the coming season all dubs wiU be required tp
adhere strictly to both the items and
the expenditures included ln their
During the summer months the
Students' Council investigated ail possible sources for borrowing funds for
use in completion of the stadium playing field, but found that no means
was available which would not require repayment of the money from
this year's revenue; hence it felt that
any further construction work upon
this subject was inadvisable for the
3. Social
The number of social functions this
year will be the same, approximately,
as last year. The main change comes
in the formation of the major functions. In compUance with last year's
policy of definite restriction on social
activities, it was decided to remove
the Faculty Balls. This year, in view
of student opinion, it has been decided
to bring back these Faculty Balls. It
is definitely understood, however, that
the number of major events cannot
be increased and that there can be
only two of the Faculty Balls reintroduced; meaning, that, two of
those formerly in force must be combined.  Whether the BaU of the Agri-

campus this year. ,
1 PubUcations
The policy of the Students' CouncU
with regard to the PubUcations Board
wiU he one of complete editorial freedom, but should the neoessity arise
there wlU be no laxity in modifying
the powers of the Editor-in-chief. The
feeUng of the students as to the pub-
Ucatlon of the "Totem" wiU be gauged
by a deposit system similar to that
of last year; should the demand for
"Totems" not be sufficient it will not
be pubUshed.
5. Athletic Activities
Wherever possible financially, intercoUegiate athletic competition wiU
be fostered. Since we feel that the
acquirement of a suitable academic
standing is the first object of every
student at the University the eligibility rules formulated last year will
be strictly enforced.
As the student body has seen in the
past few weeks, it is also our policy
to promote home games in the gymnasium.
6. Non-Athletic Activities
Financial conditions may require the
curtailment of certain of the activities of the L. S. E. No curtailment
not absolutely necessary wlU be made.
In consideration of the success of
the ParUamentary Forum ln intercollegiate competition during the last
year an aggressive debating policy will
be encouraged by this Council.
In view of the financial loss incurred by the Society through the
Players' Club Spring Tour of 1933,
this Council deems it advisable to discontinue that part of the program.
At a meeting of the Senate on October 18th the complete
registration figures for the session 1933-34 were given as follows:

Tough Practices
Jack  Tyrwhitt  proved   his   ability
to turn out a finished team in a short
space of time when Varsity won so
decisively last Saturday. Tyrwhitt believes in hard work during practices
and  put  the   squad   through   a   stiff
workout on Wednesday.  He coached
the last Varsity championship team in
1927 and by all indications he should
repeat his success this year.
Mitchell Out
The team may be without the services  of  Jimmy    Mitchell,    veteran
scrum man on Saturday. Jim whose
excellent place and drop
kicking has won many
games for Varsity is at
present suffering from
a bad cold and thus ho
may be forced to remain
J. Mitchell   out of the game.
The first team line up Is as follows:
Upward, Hurley, Mitchell, Pyle, Pfear-
son,   Maguire,   Clement,  Tyre,  Ken
Mercer, Al Mercer, Pugh, Dalton, Le-
gatt and Brand. Spares: Madley, Harrison and Hager.

10-0 BY VAC.
By Day Washington
Norm. Buriey'a battling grizzled
gridders brought disaster to the Blue
and Oold pigskin chasers at Athletic
Park last Wednesday night, scoring in
every quarter to whitewash the students 10-0.
Both Teams Fumble Often
Although both teams fumbled repeatedly, the V. A. C. had a decided
edge of the play; and except for
snatches of the second and last period when Varsity pepped up to dominate things, the final outcome was
never seriously in doubt. Wide holes
were ripped in the student line at
crucial moments to place V.A.C. In a
scoring position, whereas the U.B.C.
lads could not solve the opposing defence.
UJI.C. Off To Poor Start
A fumble on the very first play and
a subsequent feeble punt started the
Blue and Oold team off badly and
paved the way for V.A.C.*s first point
on a kick by Downey four minutes
later. Both teams seemed nervous and
uncertain under the lights and mist
Play remained even but far from
classy for the next ten minutes, both
teams being  guilty  ot loose  ball
Stewart Scores Touchdown
Pinned inside their own 25-yard
Une, the Burley boys were forced to
kick to relieve the pressure. What
might possibly have been Varsity's big
chance to score was lost when Kendall received the punt, but fumbled on
his 40-yard line to lose possession.
A few minutes later Kendall re
posted the performance and V.A.C.
recovered on the U.B.C, 15-yard line.
The Red-caps made the necessary
yards, and with first and ten on the
five-yard line hefty, herd-hitting Don
Stewart crashed over the line for the
only touchdown of the game. Convert'
ing his touch Don put his team ahead
7 points to nil with three minutes
left in the first quarter.
One Point In Second Canto
The Vacs started to go places early
in the second session, but were forced
to kick from the Varsity 25-yard line.
Downey and Kendall exchanged punts
until three minutes from half time,
when Downey kicked for one point
from the 28-yard line.
In the last two minutes Varsity
pepped up and gave the fans some ex
cltement when they advanced from
the 40-yard line to cross the V.A.C
line on a recovered fumble, only to
have the tduch disallowed through not
giving the receiver of the punt yards.
Third Quarter Tame
The third quarter proved unexciting
with the exception of Mclntyre's
splendid tackle of Stewart when the
latter had only Doug between him and
the touch line. One more point was
added in this quarter, making the
score 9-0.
In the last fifteen minutes the stu
dents tried desperately to socre, but
despite eight fresh players and a spirited attack it just couldn't be done.
U.B.C. Intercepts Pass
Varsity's chances looked good when
an intercepted forward pass gave
them first and ten on V.A.C.'s 30-yard
line. Kendall crashed through the
line for two successive first downs,
but Bolton slipped behind the line of
scrimmage and V.A.C. gained possession on their 20-yard line.
Feverish forward passes and vicious
line plays in the last six minutes
failed to break thc U.B.C. goose-egg,
and the Red and Green outfit scored
one more kick, to bring the final score
to 10-0.
Mclntyre, Rush and Kendall were
most spectacular for Varsity, although
the latter made at least two costly
fumbles. Downey and Don Stewart
were best for V.A.C.

Sid Swift Snares Second Place to Increase Seniors' Lead in
Class Competition
Herbert Richmond George McGowan De Tolly Barclay
('Toly,' to you), who has been trying to live down those names
ever since they were tacked on him by well-meaning ancestors
that roamed tiie baronial de Tolly estates in Scotland, did a
little roaming all by himself last Wednesday with disastrous
results for nine other unsuspecting young gentlemen who were
quite surprised to find that the curly-thatched Toly' can step
2.6 miles in 14 minutes, 35 2|5 seconds.   Now breath deeply.
All of which means that the fleet Mr. Barclay, who has been
recognized around 'Varsity as the pick of the half-milers for
the last three years, showed contestants in the Arts '30 chase
that he can travel even longer distances with equally fine results.
"Toly" went out in front of a field of ten at the gun. Unfaltering, he
led the boys a killing pace and after the third lap the distances between
the leaders began to widen and the lad wearing the wings of Arts '34 bolted
for the finishing tape. His time, about 8 seconds behind the record set in
1930 by Alfie Allen, waa good considering a breeze that chilled the boys
to the marrow.
For the most part the race was between Barclay, Sid Swift, Phil Northcott, and a young Theolog named Chris Loat. John Y. Smith was right up
with the leaders for two laps and then wilted.
Swift couldn't match the Barclay pace and finished about 50 yards behind ln second place. Phil Northcott ran doggedly to finish third about a
hundred yards back of Swift and the game young Loat steamed into fourth
place with his radiator boiling. Oeorge Allen was fifth and chunky little
Jack Irwin padded along flat-footed into sixth. Four didn't finish.
Arts '34 gets credit for the running of Barclay and Swift although they
are both pursuing Commerce courses. Thus they took individual honors with
10 points and also garnered 2 points towarda the Governor's Cup, which wM
be mentioned in every track story from now until next April. Northcott s third
gave .Science '84 8 polnta and consequent second place in clan standings.
Max Stewart fired the starting gun, Dr. Shrum and Prof. West were
timers, Don McTavish mobilised the badgers and Boyd Agnew and Les
Robinson held the finishing tope. Read the Ubyssey for details!
