Anniversary Play
Opens Wednesday
"Hedda Gabler" Marks Twentieth Season
Tomorrow night the  curtain  goes posters, sewing costumes, rummaging
up on the Players' Club's twentieth
annual spring play, "Hedda Gabler,"
by Henrik Ibsen.
The performance, starting at 7:15
p.m. for the convenience of students,
will be one of the most important in
the history of the club, proving
whether or not the organization is
justified in attempting the world's
finest drama.
Club Satisfied with Play
That question must remain largely
for the public to decide: the Players'
Club knows already that the play has
been worth while from the point of
view of all concerned in its production.
One of the most valuable things
about "Hedda Gabler" is the publicity
that It has brought the Players* Club,
as was particularly evident in the
week-end newspapers, and in radio
broadcasts since then.
for properties, building the set, book
ing the tour, and, most important of
all,  selling  tickets—all   these   things
have kept every member of the Players' Club busy for weeks.
Cast Hard-Worklng
The cast has been equally busy, for
the task of putting on a play like
"Hedda Gabler" in six weeks Is one
that would be well-nigh beyond the
power of any director less energetic
and capable than Miss Dorothy Somerset, and any amateur actors less
enthusiastic and self-sacrificing than
the members of the Players' Club.
Despite colds and illness they have
all stuck loyally to the job, and this
week will reap their reward. There
was a dress rehearsal on Saturday,
another long rehearsal on Sunday, a
second dress rehearsal last night. Tomorrow night the play goes on; and,
remember, it costs only 25 cents.
Has Attracted Attention
For the first time, too, the University of British Columbia's dramatic
attainments have been brought to
the notice of theatre-lovers across the
border in Washington. This is mainly due to Professor Larson's speech
at the recent dramatic conference in
Seattle, and to the circulars about
"Hedda Gabler" which have been
sent to the leading members of that
The club has received many
congratulations on these circulars,
which are the chief advertising media
for the play, and are being followed
up by telephone calls.
Making these 'phone calls, writing
the circular, organizing the publicity,

At Pep Meet
Len    Chamberlain    Competes
With Heinz Band
Crash! Bang! A blinding flash of
light and a shot rang out in the darkness—the lights went up and Dangerous Dan McGrew lay writhing upon
the floor, while Lady Lau held his
assasin to her breast—such was the
climax of the "Awful Acts", the star
attraction of the Pep meeting held
in the auditorium at noon on Friday.
Glass Scenery
The scene war, laid in a barroom
that looked like a Scienceman's dream
—bottles, bottles everywhere. The
acting was stupendous especially that
of Jack RandKi a? the beauteous Lady
Lou—such a figger! such grace! such
verve! Norman DePoe as the hard,
bitten miner and Ken Grant as Dangerous Dan McGrew were hard drinking, hard-lovinij, quick on the draw
Heinz Band Appears
The Heinz band made its initial
appearance after an announcement
from its director, Nort Wilson ,to the
effect that modern music was in revolt and that the Heinz band was a
mos revolting musical organization.
After the tunir,g up and the rendition of "My Girl's a Hullabaloo", most
of the audience were of the opinion
that they had lived up to their reputation.
Trianon Band
Len Chamberlin and his orchestra
supplied the music. Some of the
audience and especially some note-
writing Sciencemen were enamoured
of the petite blond vocalist Miss Eleanor Jones. Seme of the more popular pieces played by the orchestra
were "An Earful of Music," "Am I
Blue?" and "Fare Thee Well Anna-

Despite the popular opinion that the
elite set known as Pubsters make a
steady diet of cynical writings, exchange papers, and the Morning Herald, they do or.ee in a while condescend to consume a certain amount
of the famous Caf. rations. But they
won't have thorn in common form—
they must bo served with extra trimmings in the Faculty Rom in the

is to be held on Friday afternoon,
March 15,  at 3; 15.
On this momentous occasion, the
customary pins will be awarded. Senior editors and the Editor of the Totem will receive gold pins, while Associate editors will be favored with
silver, and you can take it from a
struggling reporter that this is small
enough recompense for a year's hard
work. At this time too, promotions
are made, for strange as it may seem,
there are always those who are ready
to step into thankless shoes just for
invaluable   experience.
Just to prove that Pubsters do make
good, we'll tell you that Dr. D. H.
Cassidy, Ubyssey editor in 1922-23 who
is now Provincial Director of Social
Welfare, is addressing the gathering
on Friday.

W.U.S. and Junior Member As
Yet Uncontested
The Campus air is badly contaminated at present with rumors of candidates, denials, worried office-seekers, and nomination papers. These
stormy conditions will be over by
Wednesday when the time for nom-
iniations close at 5 o'clock. Even at
this late date, rumors are still the
main source of information. Few of
the possibles mentioned would declare definitely whether oi not they
will run.
As yet, Clarence Idyll, president of
'37, is the only certain nominee for
junior member. There may be some
dark horse lurking in the misty background, but dilligent research has
not yet revealed him.
Jay Gould, previously mentioned as
opposition for Idyll, is definitely running for president of L.S.E. Gould
is a sophomore, member of the Players' Club, and a prominent debater,
one of the instructors for the public
speaking course. Recently he represented U.B.C. in the debate with
Washington. Jim Ferris, also prominent in debating circles, who was
elected Junior Member last year and
president of Arts '36, and was forced
to resign due to Ineligibility, will also
run for president of L.S.L'.
Darrel Gomery and Gwen Pym
have both announced their intention
of running for secretary of the
A.M.S. Gwen was recently elected
"Queen of tho Junior Prom", while
Darrel is on the executive of Arts
'36 and is senior editor of the "Ubyssey."
So far there have been no rumors
of candidates for the position of treasurer of the A.M.S. This position is
usually filled by a commerce man.

Attached To
The attention of the members of
the graduating class is called to the
following important points:
1. Last day for payment of Graduating Fees—April 25. Students whose
gradation fees are not paid can not
come up for their degrees in May.
2. Under calendar regulations all
candidates for a degree are required
to make form;il application for graduation at least one month previous
to the Congregation at which they
expect to obtain the degree. Special
forms for this purpose may be obtained from thc Registrar's office.
Most students in Fourth Year Arts,
Fifth Year Applied Science and
Fourth Year Agriculture have already
filled out forms which were included
in their registration booklets. Other
candidates should attend to this matter without delay as Congregation is
on May 9 and ihe applications should
be in by this time.
3. Changes of address which have
not already been reported should be
made on the Registrar's cards, as such
addresses are often required in connection  with  graduation  ceremonies.
4. A complete record of the names
and addresses of all graduates is kept
at the University. To maintain this
"Graduate Record" the Alumni Association co-opcartes with the Registrar's Office by giving changes of
addresses and other information.
Without the aid of every graduate,
however, it is impossible to keep the
file accurate and up-to-date, and
each Alumnus is requested to supply
information whenever available, particularly in regard to changes of address. The "Record" is open at all
times to graduates of the University.
All classes will finish
for the term on Thursday,
March 14th. The last class
for the year will be held
on the afternoon of that
Lex McKillop Presidential Aspirants

Graduate To Give Talk Thursday
Lex McKillop, who graduated from
the university in 1925, will give a
short talk on Thursday noon in Arts
100 under the auspices of the S.C.M.
Hia subject will be "Traditions of
U.B.C," and he intends to cover briefly activities of the university in the
old buildings and such notable traditions as the Arts '20 relay, and others.
It has been felt for some time that
some instruction in this line would
do a great deal towards intensifying
college spirit, by giving students of
the present some idea of the hopes
and labours of their predecessors, and
McKillop, who has distinguished himself as a speaker, is rated a good
chance for an enthusiastic reception.
Seniors To Celebrate
As usual tho graduating classes will
celebrate their emancipation with
verve and vivacity. The staid, dignified seniors anci scniorcsscs throw
off their academic seriousness for a
full week of pleasure and dissipation.
Heading in importance the long list
of engagements are the boat trip and
the ball and banquet.
Last year the boat trip was discontinued through lack of funds but
tho executive hope to revive it again
because of its success in past years.
On the last "yachting day" the upper
classmen voyaged to Wigwam Inn on
the North Ann. This was an all clay
trip on a boat chartered for the occasion. The jolly crowd set out in
the morning, luncheoncd at the Inn,
hiked, rowed, canoed, swam, fished
loafed, danced at the Inn and on
board and returned, after a busy day,
tired but happy,
The banquet and ball will be held
as usual in  tho Hotel Vancouver.
The grads, friends and relations will
eat in the Oval Room and ciance in
the Crystal Ballroom. Those bringing outside partners will pay about
$2.50 extra.

Changes in U.B.C.
The second reading of the bill
amending the University of British
Columbia Act was given in the Provincial Legislature on Tuesday, The
Mnister of Education, and Mrs. Dor
othey Sleeves, C.C.F., North Vancou
ver, were the only ones to take part
in the debate.
Dr. Weir stated that in his experience, ho was certain that the proposed changes were highly desirable.
The chief object of the bill is to facilitate co-oporation on a common
policy and pi event overlapping in
jurisdiction. The senate and the
Board of Governors are, under the
proposed change, interlocked and
given a clearer definition of powers
and functions.
Mrs. Steeves suggested that provision be made for two governors to be
elected by tho public, the choice of
one being made by the B. C. Teach
ers' association and the other by the
school trustees at their annual convention, "I would like to see the
minister go further and make the
University a truly democratic insti
tution," she said

incurred during the year,
The president of L.S.E. has charge
of all cultural clubs. He must be
sure that the cxecuives ef all these
clubs are eligible. As well he must

The chief job of the president of
M.U.S. is the arrangement of social
functions. He .selects the dates for
class parties and major affaris to conform with athletic activities and academic work. In addition he must
guide the executives of the three
men's Undergraduate Societies.
Tiie president of the W.U.S. has
similar duties.
The presidents of W.A.A. and

by Lex McKillop on "Traditions of the University."
Four hundred students gathered in
the auditorium Monday noon to hear
speeches by the four candidates for
president of tho Alma Mater Society.
Voting will take place today from 11
till 4 o'clock in the Students Council
Office. With four candidates in the
field and the added complications of
preferential ballotting it will be a
very close race, and Murray Mather
asks every student to vote.
Bernard Brynelson spoke first, advocating longe: noon hours to permit more athletic activities, a group
insurance to protect every student,
and an annual "Open House" to all
faculties. "If you arc willing to cooperate", he said in conclusion, "I am
willing to lead the way."
Cam Gorrie, the second speaker,
declined making any definite promises, but stressed the need for Union
buildings to assist in the cultural life
of the student body which he believed
was Council's special business. He
also suggested special budgets for the
Players' Club and Musical Society.
James Malkin, Commerce candidate,
also declined to make definite promises, but emphasized the need for
conservative budgetting, and recommended wider powers for Council in
matters of student discipline. He believed that U.B.C. would find it more
satisfactory to compete in sport with
American Universities rather than
with Eastern Canadian ones, or with
city leagues.
Peggy Wales advocated tho Womens' Union Building, more extensive
playing fields, and public speaking
courses with credits. The otherwise
silent audience registered some amusement when President Mather
found it necessary to remind Mis?
Wales that sho had spoken two minutes over tho time limit.
At the conclusion of the candidates'
speeches, supporters of each were allowed to speak for two minutes.
Gansner pointed to Brynelson's record of campus achievements, and laid
special emphasis on his experiences
as construction engineer in charge of
large gangs of men during summer
months, "If you want leadership and
hard work, maturity and stability,
vote for Brynleson."
Cam Gorrie was supported by
Whimster, who emphasized his candidate's Council experience, and
early fame as Premier of the Boys'
Bruce Robertson spoke for James
Malkin, pointing out the need for tact
and diplomacy as well as time and
energy in the office of president. In
addition to these" requirements, he
said, Malkin was known for putting
his ideas into action.
Peggy Wales was backed by John
Sumner, who claimed Miss Wales was
"a woman of ideas." Referring to
his candidate's suggestions for a
Women's Union building and more
play grounds, Sumner exclaimed,
"There will be an election this spring,
and we can get our share of the graft
that is going around the country."
Days for presentation of campaign speeches for Council Candidates have been set by Students' Council aa follows:
M.U.S. and M.A.A. in Applied

Under the heading "U.B.C. Players' Club
Finds That Snobbery Pays," a writer in the
magazine section of last Saturday's Daily Province makes some statements that will doubtless startle even Players' Club members themselves.
For instance, the article contains the following pieces of alleged information: " for the
greater part of twenty years the members of
this dignified organization have maintained an
attitude of condescending aloofness toward the
other and less highly favored students of the
university.—Let a freshman be admitted into
membership in theP layers' Club and he is immediately a persona grata to all the fraternities
on the campus. Let an otherwise ordinary enough young woman manage to win a place in
the cast of one of the Christmas plays and she
is automatically swept into the collective bosom of all the sororities and besought to join at
least three of them.
"Like the House of Lords, the Players' Club
is snobbish, and(the House of Lords, as Prof. J.
Friend Day is fond of saying, is the greatest
single aggregation of brains and ability in the
world. Let the Players' Club, as it regards the
past twenty years with unconcealed satisfaction, take pleasure in that thought."
In the first place, this is probably the first
time that the non-actors on this campus have
realized their lamentable misfortune in being
"less highly favored students;" and moreover,
it is probably the first time that even the Players' Club members themselves have learned
the interesting information that they are maintaining "an attitude of condescending aloofness" toward these "less highly favored students."
Secondly, the fraternities and sororities and
Players' Club members alike will no doubt be
interested to learn that admittance to the fold
of the Players' Club automatically raises a student to the status of a sort of demi-god to whom
all Greek letter societies immediately make obeisance. For the latter have heretofore been
under the misapprehension that other qualities were more important than a talent for acting in qualifying a student for fraternity membership.
And finally, all undergraduates should be
duly impressed by the fact that the Players'
Club is comparable to no less an organization
than the British House of Lords—"the greatest
single aggregation of brains and ability in the
world." Such a distinction is not to be sneezed
at, and certainly entitles the Players' Club to
the hearty congratulations of the entire student body.
We realized that the Players' Club was a
very strong and worthy organization, holding
a position of deserved prominence on the campus, that its membership was of high calibre,
and that its achievements have been very great.
But we did not realize that its members were
so intolerably snobbish, and that it filled the
elevated position of a local and exclusive aristocracy on the campus. Nor were we aware that
dramatic talent was the sole criterion by which
intellectual and social position should be judged.
It is gratifying to know that our erroneous
impression has been corrected.
The   Wslkv 5
By Nancy Miles
Unfinished Business Dept.
This issue of the Ubyssey, if you look at the
number, is the thirty-ninth. We suspend publication with the fortieth and since Arthur,
John and I only write for the odd numbers,
this is the last time we'll ever have anything
official to say to all you lovely people by way
of the Ubyssey.
For this reason we take it upon ourselves
to explain some things and wind up all unfinished business. To wit, first about split infinitives.
You probably have thought it was just a
gag, this phobia for the exploded verb form,
something to keep the wheels of the linotype
fed on Monday afternoons. It isn't. We are
quite, well fairly anyway, serious about it.
Here's why.
Conversation, the ordinary kind which doesn't some out of the movies or over the radio,
has no commercial value. It is a medium of enjoyment and artistically used can be a thing
of beauty and a joy forever.
Its uselessness yet its amusing quality make
it little more than dropping pebbles into a very
calm pool. The "plink" and the little waves
that follow are what makes it pleasant.
But if you're dropping pebbles into a pool
artistically, you don't go stirring the pool up
into a seething ocean first, because that takes
the thrill out of the "plink" and the little waves.
Infinitives are the most satisfactory conversational plinkers.
It's no more serious an offense than that.
Thus when one of our A.M.S. presidential candidates promises "to enthusiastically and energetically initiate and carry out some plans"
and Mr. Butterfield says the mayor was "led
to once more dwell lovingly" upon a fact they
offend a conversationally sensitive ear.
If you want to wifully and malignantly go
stirring up the placid pool you can't expect
your pebble to joyously and satisfyingly plink
to the artistic listener, who, incidentally is the
only worthwhile listener.
Yes, that was done on purpose.
Another thing. About this crockery frac-
tury ascribed to me, it's not true. Just because
one, many long months ago I squashed a little
repression by a glorious and dramatic crash,
which was also effective, all breakage since
has been blamed on me.
And the singing. I cannot sing octettes alone, which are mostly what are sung around
the precincts. There are those, in the octette
itself, which say I can't even sing solos, so that
seems to relieve me of all responsibility.
Also we sincerely trust that you have forgotten every piece of useless information we've
ever told you. That, my friends, is what it was
for. We have been taken aback on several occasions recently when kindly material suggested for this place (who, incidentally, are what
keep it going) have handed us useless information we dished up a year or more ago. "I
can't remember where I read it," they say, "but
I think it was a reliable place."
That, my fine feathered friends, is appreciation.
And so we wind up all unfinished business.
This is the last Sunday night we will sit baffled before a typewriter on the tail end of a
week-end, and wonder what the heck to write
about this week.
It's been very nice knowing all you lovely
people, and when I'm a dollar a word man,
we'll have a nice duck dinner«you bring the
Quick Watson, a hanky. My hay fever,
no doubt.

The Players' Club, with all its minor deficiencies, has long ranked among the most
prominent and active campus organizations. It
has the advantage of representing a very attractive branch of student activities, but at the
same time it has built up a strength in itself,
in the nature of its membership. It is noteworthy that those who perform routine tasks in
the background are as enthusiastic and thor-
rosy glow of fame. Publicity agents, stage
hands, electricians and the "rhubarb" army in
the wings are quite as responsible for the success of the production as the principals before
the footlights. Thus every play presented,
whether good, bad or indifferent, represents
the maximum skill and hard work which the
club can produce, and it has been during the
last twenty years a creditable maximum. There
is no dead wood. The success of this organization is in itself a recommendation for limited
membership, which might well be applied more
widely on the campus. J
A good Spring Play is as great A credit to
the university as an athletic championship or
a scholastic record. We wish the Players' Club
ough as the brighter lights who bask in the    every success for "Hedda Gabler Tuesday, March 12, 1935

This time I fancied the voice was
not quite so coy, as it answered,
"Fairview 12345."
The mysterious noises ensued. A
click, and then, "Hastings Baths!"
"Oh, he does, huh. Well, so do
I."   Tsk, tsk.   Try again.
8:45-"Fairview 12345."
The voice sounded distinctly dumb
this time. After what seemed an interminable wait, the voice came again,
"What number did you call, please."
"Fairview 12.'i45!" I fairly shouted
into tho instrument.   This time I got
results. A deep male voice answered.
"Is Ted there please," I said politely.
"Naw!" he growled. "If you fellows don't stop phoning me on gags

and drew a sight draft on the merchant through the local bank, which
returned the draft unhonoured.

the postmaster replied laconically
that it was "O.K."

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Students only have to go to members of the economics and history
staffs of this university to find out
the fate of education, scholarship and
young people in Nazi Germany. All
intelligent students know the facts.
This week, probably Friday, the
Hitler warship, Karlsruhe, is due to
dock in Vancouver. Wherever this
boat ha3 touched on this continent, it
has been greeted with the protests
of people who believe in freedom.
There was a tremendous demonstration in San Francisco and an hour
strike by longshoremen and marine
workers . It is understood the warship will not dock in Seattle because
the city authorities do not wish to
risk popular action and  indignation.
The visit of the Karlshue to Vancouver will be utilized by well known
publicists and big business men. For
a period after the visit (if there is
a visit), the press reports of club
meetings will contain eulogies of conditions in the Fascist navy—order and
discipline under the fine Nazi ^officers, the happiness of all concerned,
Present plans call for a civic reception and a march up to the Hotel
Vancouver, where at considerable
cost of a supposedly terribly bankrupt
(?) city will entertain officers and
Vancouver youth is organizing in
protest. At a joint meeting of youth
and adults  in  the Moose  Hall  at 8
o'clock Thursday night, reports will
be given on proposed steps to "receive" the ship. A member of the
U.B.C. Section, Student League of
Canada, has been appointed as one
of the dozen members on the Youth
Committee for action to draw up and
present youth's plans at the Moose
Hall meeting.
This letter h intended to draw attention to these activities, and to appeal to all thoi;e campus organizations
-such as the Y.M.CA., S.C.M., V.C.
U., Cosmopolitan Club, International
Relations Club—which are understood
to be against war and fascism. This
is also a chance for theologians to indicate by their presence that they
oppose a government which declares
that Hitler, like the Savior Himself,
has been sent by God to deliver the
German people  (and others).
If the ship comes and a demonstration is held, such action will serve
to consolidate Canadian opinion
against reaction at home. In Montreal and Winnipeg and other cities,
the "Wearing of the Shirts" is already
tolerated by the authorities.
Students, be at the Moose Hall
Thursday nigh, and at the docks Friday if Hitler's "good-will" emissary
arrives. Take a stand for the German students, workers, intellectuals
and others brutalized and victimized
by Hitler! Take a stand for your
own future!

If you are worrying about what you
are going to do when you graduate,
ask Gerry Prevost, the President of
the Letters Club. When he leaves
the University behind him, he is going to step right Into the position of
Editor of the "Cowichan Leader," the
paper of Hugh Savage, M.P.
I think Gerry will tell you that
hard work "does the trick," for he
has worked like Jacob did for Rach-
ael to get that job—seven long years.
Ho has been everything from a mere
reporter to News-Editor of this paper in his summer vacations, and Ins
served his apprenticeship.
March 22, 191?, was the happy day
when Gerald Prevost first saw light,
in the fair city of Duncan, on Vancouver Island. He went to school in
his home town, both Publi: and High
schools, and *.hen came to Varsily.
Making Union College hw home, he
entered '.mo man> Campus activities,
where h's v.orth has beei realized.
He is the present President of the
Letters Club, the Vice-President and
mainstay of the Players' Club, and
a former Assistant Editor of the
Ubyssey. Interested off the campus
in skiing and skating, campus sport
has seen his prowess. He is the present golf champion at Varsity, and
played for his Alma Mammy against
Washington. He has been on the
second team of the badminton club
for two years, and belonged to the
swimming club for two years.
When his opinions of everything in
general were asked by your reporter,
Mr. Prevost stated that he likes
everything. He looks forward to the
day when the Players' Club can handle Its own money, and when the
proper emphasis is laid on sports. He
would like to see the emphasis rather on "Player" sports than on "Crowd"
sports. Major sports are now apparently chosen because they attract
audiences. More important are games
such as tennis, golf and badminton,
for one continues them all one's life.
These should be major sports, rather
than those which one plays no more
after graduation.

Exhibition Game
Thunderbirds Win 19-10
In a fast, wide open, high scoring game the Thunderbird
McKechnie Cup team wound up a season in which they have
become known as "Varsity's wonder team" in the downtown
press, by cleaning up their Occasional rivals 19-10, to prove that
their cinch on the top league berth is no fluke.
Perhaps the contest was not quite legitimate rugby, but
it certainly was one of the season's thrillers, abounding in
sparkling backfield play. It was a sort of pedestrian polo most
of the time, with 50 and 60 yard runs the rule rather than the
In the first half the Blue and Gold4>
piled up an 11-0 lead on three magnificent trys, all scored after extended handling plays, Robson taking the
ball at last to go over for the first
two, and Roxy for the third.
Defeat   \
Carey converted the second try.
In the final canto, the Grads came
to life for a bit, Mitchell going over,
Mercer kicking a field goal very
neatly, and Mitchell bringing the
score up to 10 for the Whiteshirts
near the end.
In the meantime the Thunderbirds
had not been idle; Roxborough shimmied his way tlirough the line and
passed to Pyle, who planted the ball
between the posts. Carey converted.
Roberts then did another long gallop
for the third try he made in the day.
Result, 10-10.
This, of course, is a mere outline
of the scoring plays. Tho real thrill
of the game was in the repeated
stonewall stands which both Varsity
and the Occasionals were forced to
make i straddle of their own lines,
the many long chases down the field
as one or another backfield man
broke through the opposition, only to
be pulled down by a speedy back
or wing before he could make the
distance, and the desperate heavings
and struggling of the ramping packs.
It was a worthy finale to a great

from the fact that they out-scored

Indians just managed to nose out
the Varsity hockey team 1-0 in a
thrilling closely-fought match Saturday afternoon al Connaught Park.
About 100 people saw the match which
by quality of play, the students at
least deserved to draw. Every man
played well and only an accident lost
the game. The team: Green, Brem-
ner, Ritchie, Cornish, Ames, Taka-
hashi, Trumpour, Knight, Ono, Parr,
Gray. Next week they play Vancouver Club In the last and toughest
game of the season.
Varsity soccermen dropped their
second game of the season Saturday
when they lost to Maccabees 3-1, at
Kerrisdale Park. All in all, it was
a bad clay for the Thunderbirds. Not
only did the two points they gained
assure the Fraternal eleven nothing
worse than a tie for first place, but
the Collegians lost the service of Russ
Stewart, brilliant left half, who was
forced out early in the second half
with a badly wrenched knee.
While Varsity were losing, Columbia Hotel defeated the weak sisters
of tho league, Chinese Students, to
climb over the Collegians into fourth
place, but as Varsity have two games
in hand, they expect to regain the
lost advantage.
Maccabees scored twice in the first
half, Bernard cioing the honours both
times on easy chances. However,
they have Rusika, their goalie, to
thank for holding this 2-0 advantage
at half time. Despite a decided edge
in play, the Thunderbirds could not
beat the rival custodian, who fitted
out shots from Laurie Todd, Kozoolin
and MacDougall which had "goal'.'
written all over them.
For the first fifteen minutes of the
second half, the Students, bent on
reducing the deficit, forced the pace.
Then Stewart attempted to block a
kick by Weaver, and wrenched his
knee. He was carried off the field,
and the game lesumed with Varsity
playing ten men.
With Bill Wolfe also cut of the
game with a pulled tendon., the Blue
and Gold presented a much weakened
squad, and before they could pull
themselves together, Pallot added another goal for Maccabees. From then
on good worK by Sutherland and
Quayle kept the score sheet clean,
while the four man forward line gave
the Fraternal defence plenty to do.
With ten minutes to play, Laurie
Todd came through with what was
easily the best goal of tha game. His
drive from outside the penalty area
was just inside the post and gave
Ruzika no chance to save. Neither
team was able to add to their score.

Varsity Out To Win First Two
The Thunderbirds will be tackling their toughest opposition to date when they take on the fast and high-scoring Victoria Blue Ribbon team on Friday and Saturday of this week.
The last games of the best three out of five series will be played
in tho Capital next week.
Since the Blue Ribbons have a bad habit (or good, according to your outlook) of winning games on their own floor,
The Thunderbirds will be using all their wiles to win the first
two games in the Point Grey gymnasium. Varsity is also known
for their ability to play their best on their own floor, and the
series is a toss-up.
The Blue Ribbons have beaten Adanacs and Province of
the Inter-City League this year, besides many another classy
team from across the line. They have played twenty-three games
this year and have won seventeen of them, a very good percentage. They are noted for their clean playing as well, only
two of their players having been banished on four fouls all
during the season. Altogether they are worthy opponents for
this year's Thunderbirds, and the games should be classics.
Basketball Tickets
Tickets will be on sale on thc
campus tliis week for the forthcoming basketball series with
the Victoria Blue Ribbons. The
first four rows of seats in the
gymnasium will be reserved for
both Friday and Saturday's
games. These will cost 50 cents
apiece. One side of thc gymnasium will be reserved for Varsity
rooters. Thc rest of the seats
will sell at 35 cents each. Students are requested to get their
tickets early.

While the more sissified element of
the student body attended Friday's
"monstrous" pep meeting (the epithet
was well chosen) a bunch of Education he-men rode roughshod over
the cream of Arts '35 in a grudge
basketball game on the gym floor.
With his check Bill Patmore still
yawning in the best morning-after-

first half ended with the Seniors

After the turn-over Frank Rush,
Murray Little ,and Frank Alpen came
