Victoria People
Hear Facts On
University Case
With J. M. Campbell, Victoria
School Trustee, in tht chair tht public matting, organised by studtnts
visiting Victoria over tht week-end,
got under way Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
On the platform wart Very Rev. C.
S. Quintan, Margaret Clay, city librarian, and W. Shilvock, representing the student body.
Miss Clay pointed out that students
realized fully tht Province's dire
need for economy but declared that
a 57 per cent, cut In two years was
an event unparalled in history."
It was far too heavy a cut, she
urged, to* applause.
Dean Quainton declared that it was
"inconceivable that our University
should be entirely closed, as some
of our die-hards would have it. It
is too late for this," he maintained,
"and the proposed economies are too
sweeping.—Economy is one thing,
starvation another," he said, and
asked if the government might not
be prevailed upon to make a compromise.
Mr. Butterfield, Province columnist,
was strongly criticized for his "priceless statement" that the faculty of
Arts "is not worth a whoop." This
faculty was considered by the speaker as the most important institution in the University in the interests of a liberal education.
The concluding speaker was Win
Shilvock, who presented a large
number of statistics.

Success Indicated
In Interior Work
Handled By Alums
The Alumnae Association of U.B.C.
has been handling tha distribution of
tht petition throughout tht interior
of tht province.
At time of going to press, reports
of definite progress made wore not
ytt available, but the fact that graduates from Varsity art to be found
In every inland town and that a
number of student speakers have
been already detailed to address
mass meetings in many of these
centres, is felt to promise as great
success in the Interior as has attended the efforts of students in
Vancouver  and New Westminster.
Toronto Raises
University Fees
In Arts Faculty
Toronto, Feb. 19th (C.I.P.): Cuts
and Boards of Governors are becoming the topic for conversation in
Toronto as well as Vancouver, for
the Board here announces a reduction in the salaries of all professors.
The cut comes Into effect on March
1st, and will be proportionate with
the  Provincial  Government  cut.
No suggestion of a smaller grant
for the University from the Government has been published, although
the students will be made to realise
more fully the cost of education
when the fees for the Arts course
are increased from $75 to $100. So
far no other Faculty has had its fees
Support Given
By Victorians
To Committee
While two thousand students in all
parts of Greater Vancouver and New
Westminster were asleep in preparation for Friday's great campaign, a
conference of grave Import waa going on aboard S. S. Princess Jpan,
bound for Victoria, where fourteen
studtnts listened to their chairman
regarding 'their plan of campaign.
"Tht original purpose of this Ujlp to
Victoria wa* to carry on The work
of canvassing for signatures, but we
have extended this Idea and now
propose to obtain a hall in order to
hold a mass meeting."
A few prominent Victorians were
"lined up" and were to be interviewed as soon as possible. Saturday evening was the time set for
the meeting and prominent citizens
were asked to speak from the platform.

The committee also made arrangements for posters and advertisements

By 10:30 Saturday the Memorial

Rev. C. S. Quainton M.A., D.D., together with Miss Margaret Clay, city
librarian, had promised  to  speak.

however, refused* to allow U. B. C.
speakers to address the student body
there. Being governed by the Victoria School Board, the College is in
a difficult position and preferred to
remain on neutral ground.

Student Petition
Meets Widespread
Popular Approval
Vancouver   and   District   Shown   To   Be
Strongly In Favor of Maintaining U.B.C.
At High Level | All Sections Covered
By Classes
Nearly two thousand students tramped the streets of Greater Vancouver all day Friday and Saturday in the greatest
campaign effort Varsity has ever organized.
Each class mobilized at its centre of operation, chose leaders
and dispersed in an orderly manner all over the city. From the
number of signatures obtained, opinion in Vancouver seems to
be favorable to the cause of the studentg. Very few people
actually refused to sign the petition, and of the refusals, the
majority were from foreigners who were unable to understand
what was asked of them.
That good fighters art at their
best when the going looks toughest
was strikingly Illustrated Friday
in the University auditorium when
the largest gathering of studtnts In
the history of the U.B.C. assembled
for final instructions that ' would
send them into a cold, snowy city in
search of public support.
Whtn Earl Vance called the meeting to order and invited part of the
mob which was jamming the aisles
to join the august councillors and
publicity men upon the platform,
there wort still great numbers fighting for standing room. On every
side cheerful but determined faces
presaged an active and industrious
drive in all parts of the city.
The meeting got into full swing
with the most rousing and enthusiastic rendition of "Hail U. B. C."
which that song has so far
experienced at the hands of the
students. Earl Vance uncovered another of his latent talents in directing the musical outburst. Continuing with his opening remarks Vance
stressed the Importance of realizing
how much depended upon the
campaign for signatures, and gave
an interesting illustration on how
to approach the house-wife (prompted by Harold Straight).
Kenny Martin then adressed the
gathering and Issued final instructions to the various groups and

checkers as the figures clicked over
the sixty thousand mark.
Students of U.B.C. Organize to Protest Grant Cut
This is a photograph taken of the student mass meeting held
Thursday noon in preparation for the circulation of the giant
petition. Nearly two thousand students packed the auditorium
to the aisles. The object of the drive was stated, instructions
were given out, and a general appeal made to the students by
the Campaign Committee for their co-operation and support.
The response shook the building,—a deafening shout of relief
greeted the declaration that it was up to the students now to
jump in and do their share after weeks of suspense. The Committee had drawn up careful plans for organizing the petitioners, not only in Vancouver centre, but in North and West
Vancouver, Burnaby and New Westminster as well, not to mention the wide-spread effort to circulate the petition through the
whole province. The results now known are conclusive evidence
of the spirit of whole-hearted zeal and co-operation with which
these plans were carried out.
Public Sympathetic
More than half tiie people approached signed without question,
expressing themselves as heartily
against a fifty percent reduction in
the University grant. Many remarked
on the enthusiasm ot the studenta
who would turn out an masse in a
snow storm to save their university.
Others protested that the University
is only tor the children of tht rich,
and to keep a staff of professors In
high salaried Idleness. A great many
even of the% were induced to sign.

New Westminster, covered by the

and supplied a large number of signatures. With business-like organitatlon

Electric station to meet those coming from trains . Reports from the
residential district were also favorable.
Apartment Houses Good Ground
Arts '32 met with success in the
down-town business district. Offices
and banks yielded the most names.
A student obtained one hundred and
seventy-five names in one office
building alone. Canvassers who were
touring this district stated that
wherever they went, they had received courteous attention and willing support. In the West End, seniors reported that in many places
people would not open their doors,
but very few actually refused to
sign. Apartment houses yielded
the most signatures, while rooming
houses seemed the most unfriendly.
Sciencemen Have Tough Grind
The hardest section to canvass, and
the one producing the least results,
was the district east of Main street,
which was being covered by Science.
Many people in this district are foreigners and the Sclencomen had hard
sledding. However, they persisted
valiantly and even signed up gangs
of men working on the roads.
Arts 33, covering South Vancouver,
reported a very favorable reception.
In one district, eight-hundred names
were obtained with only six refusals.
Full reports from the Fairview district (Education) show up very well.
The Frosh also met with a cordial reception in Kitsilano and Kerrisdale.
Reports from the North Shore,
where the Sophomores were canvassing, showed two thousand signed
on the dotted line. The scattered
nature of the district made the work
Theologs Complete District
The Theologs, who covered the entire University district, have obtained nearly sixteen hundred names.

properly covered on Friday, while
the Committee spent the week-end
estimating the number of signatures
prior to presenting the petition in
Victoria  yesterday  afternoon.

The Student Publicity Committee is to be
congratulated on the efficient manner in which
it organised last week's petition campaign.
Without that organisation the drive could
"never have been the success which it was.
However, organisation was not the only thing
which contributed to the success of the campaign. The student body, too, is fully justified
in looking with pride on its recent achievement.
It was not surprising that plenty of enthusiasm was in evidence at the meeting last
Thursday when the petition plan was announced. The students had been held in check
long enough, they were ready for action of any
kind. However, it is one thing to vote unanimously for action and quite another to spend
a whole day trudging the streets in a snow
storm and still come back for more the following morning. The student body has amply
demonstrated, that the wild applause which it
accorded to speakers at Thursday's meeting
was more than the response of mob psychology
to a clever speech. It has proved that the individuals which compose it are prepared almost
without exception to sacrifice their own comfort and convenience for the common good. In
fact, the complete absence of all individual and
faction prejudice which has been a feature of
the campaign throughout might well be considered by certain critics of the student body
and by some people closely connected with the
The result of the drive in the form of signatures has been gratifying and the definite
knowledge of public goodwill which has been
obtained is valuable information. Perhaps
the most significant result of the drive, however, is the effect which such a remarkable
demonstration of student sincerity is bound to
have in enlisting public sympathy.
In an article printed in the Sunday Province of February 14, Mr. Jack Loutet, M.L.A.
for North Vancouver, submits a volume of evidence intended to show that the government
would be fully justified in cutting the University grant by the amount which has been proposed. Mr. Loutet's opinions are interesting
and for the most part appear fairly logical. His
suggestion that fees at the University be
raised as a means of increasing the revenue has
been considered impractical by others with a
more intimate knowledge of University finances than he. Nevertheless the member for
North Vancouver is quite entitled to express
his own ideas on the matter., When, however,
Mr. Loutet says that "a group of students
would apparently rather see these thousands
starve than for a time reduce their educational
facilities or see an increase in its cost to them,"
he is either deplorably ignorant of the facts or
he is guilty of the fault with which he charges
the student body, namely, failure to think.
The students of U.B.C. have never given
any indication that they wished anyone to suffer as a result of the University grant being
increased. They have already accepted a heavy
cut which has touched them personally in the
form of increased fees. They have expressed
their willingness that the University should accept a further reduction in the grant. What
they are protesting is that the University
should suffer more than any other department.
If it can be shown that this is not the case the
students will be the last to agitate for more
Mr. Loutet, as a thinker, can surely see the
impracticality of limiting education in order
to provide temporary relief for the needy. It
is obvious that such a policy would not only
fail to provide a sound solution to the problem
of poverty, but would also aid materially in
decreasing the earning power and the mental
balance of a great many more people. Such
an ill-founded argument is definitely derogatory both to the rest of Mr. Loutet's argument
and to his own ability to view a world-wide
situation in perspective.
Tuesday, February 16, 1932
Our petition campaign came like • whirlwind. Announced one day, and almost completed the next! The chairmen of the Publicity
Committees and the class execu-
Campalgn tives showed remarkable expedi-
Comraent tion and organizing ability, and the
response of the students was all
that could be desired. At this time, I have not
learned the final number of names obtained in
Greater Vancouver, or the results from other
centres, but it is apparent that we have received gratifying support from the public. Our
petition speaks with tens of thousands of
tongues, and demands a fair/deal for the University.
One of my own observations was that most
husbands are still masters in their own homes.
Some wiveg would not sign until they had
obtained permission, and some Husbands considered that their signatures stood for tiie
whole family and would not get their wiveg to
sign unless specially requested.
I found that the general feeling on the
street I covered was that education should not
feel the economy axe so heavily, that the
work of years should not now be crippled,
that the government was making too drastic a
cut in the University grant, and that the children of the general public would suffer, while
the wealthy could go elsewhere.
We had a good example of biased journalism in the heading The Province gave to the
story of the campaign. It seems mat "bewildered" citizens were "induced" to sign up. The
citizens who signed my petition were not bewildered—they knew exactly what they were
doing, and they were glad to do it.
This is the same newspaper which, with
its usual bold leadership, ran an editorial on
"U.B.C. and B.C." that was open to two interpretations, I thought. And there soon appeared confirmation—one correspondent garnered that the University was being attacked,
and another thought it was being supported!
One choice passage was: "Under the circumstances the government of the province could
scarcely be blamed for assuming mat the
province was indifferent to the University that
the University didn't mean anything to the
people, and that the taxpayers would rather
pay their obligations, save on their taxes, or
spend their money on roads or unemployment
relief, than on the faculties and students at
Point Grey."   Read it again.
The matter of the origin of "O.K." is opened
again with the presentation to me of a clipping
from the Canadian Wallpaper Magazine. In
spite of the theory expounded, I hold
"O. K." by "hoka," the Indian word adopted
Again by General Andrew Jackson. Here
is the quotation:
"The expression 'O.K.' is in current use in
France as meaning "approved"—and surely
the French never heard that it is a Barnum-
esque way of expressing "Orl Korrect," as our
American neighbors affirm. I was puzzled
as to how this "Americanism" had crept into
the French language, so asked one of the leading French magazines, that specializes in answering queries as to the language, what the
origin of the word might be. I was amazed
when I read the following reply:
"The best rum imported into France comes
from a small town known as 'Aux Cayes' (pronounced in French 'o-kay'), near Port-au-
Prince, Haiti. In the wine and spirit trade
whenever a liquor is of irreproachable quality
it is said to be 'Aux Cayes,' and this expression has been generalized to designate anything^
that is above reproach."
If any solution is to come to the great social
and economic problems of the day, it will inevitably come from the trained thinker, from
the men who have assimilated facts already
known, and are therefore in a position to estimate with the best chance of success the merits
of various plans for the improvement of social conditions.
Universities are recognized everywhere in
the world as the natural home for such fostering of ability and learning. It seems logical,
then, despite Mr. Loutet's sincere objections,
to see that the youth of this province receive
opportunities at least as great as those of other
Canadian provinces, if British Columbia is to
have the services of such highly trained men.
Seventy thousand voters can't be wrong.

"The political History of B.C. since
the Confederation," was the subject
of a paper read by Bill Roper at
a meeting of the Historical Society
held at the home of Mrs. H. A. Ireland,  Monday  evening.
At the time of Confederation B.
C.'s problem was perplexing. The
debt was increasing and mining returns dwindling, annexation was
still mooted on the Island. The
chief article under discussion of the
terms of Confederation was the railway clause.
Joseph Trutch, the first lieutenant
governor, called on J. P. McCreight
to form a government. The first
Legislative Assembly composed of
25 members met on February 5,
1872. Party politics were unheard of.
During G. A. Walkem's admlnstra-
tlon, 1874-76, the Island vs. Mainland
The survey had been completed but no actual work
begun, and Esquimalt had been
chosen as the terminus. The "Pacific
Scandal" drew attention away from
B.C.'s ills for a time. Commissions
were sent out to investigate the situation but varied greatly In the amount
of annual expenditure proposed. The
Carnarvon Terms were most favorable
to B. C. but the attitude of Eastern
Canada was opposed to the railway
scheme as utterly impracticable.
Manhood suffrage was introduced
by A. C. Elliot. The railway problem still raged but a start was soon
made, the route chosen and Burrard
Inlet made the terminus. On November 7, 1885 the Canadian Pacific
Railway was completed followed by
the completion of the Island line,
August 3, 1886. With the completion
of the railway a new day dawned
in B. C.
Up to 1903 no great political leader
had been produced in B. C. The
coming of Richard McBride in 1903
changes political history. He definitely favoured the party system and
following the election of 1903 he
formed the first Conservative government. He also is responsible for
many railway ventures, the Canadian
Northern Pacific, the Kettle Valley
and the Pacific Great Eastern, all
received his support.
It being difficult and unwise to
comment on contemporary politico)
history Mr. Roper concluded with a
challenge to prospective politicians.
"The province has not been well administered; railway expenditure has
been lavish, the debt has increased

great measures come Into power in

Letters Club
Hears Paper
On Irish Mystic
"To reveal Ireland in a clear and
beautiful light, to create the Ireland
ln the heart, Is the province of a national literature." This was the
theme of the paper, "A. E." given
by Robert Brooks before the Letters
Club at the home of Dr. Sedgewick
on February 9.
Mr. Brooks began with an outline
of the cultural movement known as
the Irish Renaissance, a great re-birth
of the Irish national spirit in literature. Prominent in this movement
was "A.E." He has become the embodiment of the peculiarly interwoven strands of Irish character, of that
peculiar mingling of the material and
the spiritual which at once allures
and astounds us."
The task undertaken by A. E. was
to develop an Irish culture, a national consciousness and ideal which
would permeate the whole of Irish
society. He believes in the value of
establishing a Celtic tradition. He
has done more than any other man
to make Dublin a centre of intellectual life and is ever on the lookout
for latent or unrecognized talent in
his countrymen.
A. E.'s early mental development
was very rapid. At fourteen he began to delve into "that profound
literature, the scriptures of the
world. Brahman, Buddhist, Egyptian and Chinese philosophies were
his constant study. It is hardly to be
wondered at that there was nothing
Irish in his first and second volumes
of verse. All his thoughts were colored by Orientalism. At the age of
thirty, however, he became interested in a new realm. Irish folklore
and druidism superseded Hindu mysticism in his poetry.
A. E.'s time, however, was not all
devoted to poetry. Early In the century he became actively identified
with the task of reconstructing Irish
agricultural life. In 1923 he founded
and edited the "Irish Statesman" for
seven years the very centre of Irish
thought and culture. On its demise
in 1930 the Literary Digest stated:
'His paper went out of business because it was too fearless, too brilliant. Its passing leaves a gap in the
intellectual life of the Irish people
which may not be filled for many a
A pronounced characteristic of
A. E.'s whole life and work is his
mysticism, a natural outcome'of his
study of ancient cults and legends.
He pictures his brain as a court in
which many living creatures throng.
With pictures of memory are blended pictures from other minds, other
countries, and sometimes reflections
of happenings in regions Invisible to
the outer eye. "And as meditation
grows more exalted, the forms traceable to memory tend to disappear,
and we have access to a memory
greater than our own, the treasure
hcuse of august memories in the innumerable being of earth."
A. E.'s poetry exemplifies this
faith. Many of his lyrics express this
Pantheistic view—that earth is the
great mother, from whom we spring,

By T. Kong Lee, Arte '32
The Renaissance and Reformation
killed the Holy Roman Empire. From
that time onwards Nationalism had
its steady growth. The European
nations, all aimed at national grandeur. As a result, every nation was
Interested only In external expansion. The ear of colonization
then set in. This policy reached its
climax at the World War.
After the World War, every nation realized the mistake of their
former policy and looked back with
regrets on the destruction of the
Holy Roman Empire. Tht League
of Nations waa created tor the maintenance of world peace. Ever since
the creation of this institution various movements have been directed
in the Western World at large for
thia purpose. While the Western
World is working feverishly tor this
purpose what course is Japan pursuing?
Japan on the pretense of protecting her rights and Interests in Manchuria, occupied Mukden on Sept.
18, 1931, and seized all strategic
points in the three Eastern Provinces. Even if we grant that Japan
has a list of grievances, the is not
justified in such a military course.
She is a member of the League of
Nations and one of the signatories
of the Hint Power Pact and tht
Brland-Kellogg Treaty. In these international treaties she has pledged
herself to respect the administrative
and territorial integrity of China.
As a member of the League of
Nations Japan should submit the
dispute to«this institution for peaceful arbitration in advance of making warlike moves. Article 13 of
the League of Nations provided
"That the members of the League
agree that If there should arise between them any dispute likely to
lead to a rupture, they will submit
the matter either to arbitration or
enquiry by the Council and they
agree in no case to resort to war
until three months after the award
of the Council." But Japan failed
to do this.
Just as private citizens are prohibited by every civilized state in
the world from taking violent measures to obtain redress from their fellows, without first having appealed
to the state, so are nations in a civilized world pledged by their honor
to submit their disputes to peaceful
arbitration, prior to any military action. But Japan has resorted to barbaric justice.
The Right Honorable George Lans-
bury has well said, "the Japanese
government has been engaged in a
piece of International piracy." Should
every nation follow the same policy
as Japan is pursuing the only peaceful machinery—the League of Nations—would no longer exist.
The pursuance of barbaric justice
in the occupation of Manchuria has
been denounced by the resolution of
the Council of the League of Nations and by the action of the U.S.A.
in Invoking the Nine-Power Pact.
Japan occupies Manchuria at an economic loss. The farmers cannot
cultivate the soil and the merchants
cannot conduct business owing to
the chaotic state of affairs existing
there at the present. Japan can occupy Manchuria but she cannot control It. She reaps no benefit from
this occupation and she has to send
large sums of money from her imperial treasury to support the army.
ln this connection Japan faces another difficulty. To raise an additional sum of money to support this
army is not an easy problem as the
Japanese business at large Is on the
verge of bankruptcy due to the
world depression and the economic
boycott of the Chinese people.
Napoleon's occupation of Spain
caused his downfall. He had to send
a huge sum of money to Spain for
the maintenance of his army. But
Napoleon faced financial difficulties
at the time because of the continental policy he was pursuing. Japan
facing the same situation, views the
Manchurian conquest with alarm.
She has to stop the Chinese boycott but how can she do it?
In this connection Japan has decided to occupy Shanghai and Nanking so that she can penalize the
Chinese Government and force her
to sign a treaty to recognize her supremacy in Manchuria and restrict
the patriotic movement of the Chinese in the pursuing of the economic boycott policy.
To the minds of many people, the
boycott is a next step to war. I
should say in this connection that
the boycott policy is fostered by
Japan's occupation of Manchuria
and by the voluntary patriotic sentiment of the Chinese people. It is
perfectly legitimate. Article 16 of
the League of Nations has sanctioned
this policy as a means of punishing
the agressor nation.
If Japan should succeed in this
policy the world cannot gainsay her
legality in Manchuria and she will

Thursday By 26-21 Score
"Pi" Campbell Scores Four Points in First Two Minutes—Blue
And Gold Squad Down Seven Points in First Half But Out-
score Visitors in Second Canto >
Playing a brand of basketball that had the home squad
dazzled throughout the first half of the game at .the Varsity gym
Thursday night the Ellensburg hoop stars sailed home to victory by a score of 26-21.
The visitors gave one of the smoothest exhibitions of effective combination seen in the local gym for some time. Although
Varsity opened up the scoring, when "Pi" Campbell gathered
in four points in the first two minutes of the game, Ellensburg
came right back with an unbeatable offensive which soon had
them out in front.' Haney at centre for the visitors dropped in
couple of nifty shots  that  were<t>
ticketed for the basket from the
moment they left that rangy individual's capable hands.
The teachers from over the
line apparently had an inexhaustible
repertoire of hoop plays which enabled them to get away from their
checks and threaten the Blue and
Gold basket tune and again. Varsity was compelled to resort to solo
efforts in order to register on the
score sheet the determined attack of
the visitors apparently disorganising
the home combination.
Waimsley, Varsity centre, was outweighed and outreached by his opponent Haney, but showed lots of
fight and held his man well. The
first half ended with Varsity down
•even points.
After the interval, both teams
opened up a little more and set an
even faster pace. It was evident
from the moment the home squad
took the floor that coach Arnold
Henderson had been speaking severely to them about keeping closer
tabs on their checks. For the remainder of the game the Blue and
Oold stalwarts clung to the burly
forms of their opponents like limpets, and held them to 11 points
while adding 13 pointa to the U.B.C.
With the game apparently on ice,
Ellensburg proved their versatility in
giving an exhibition of clever stalling that had the home fans on edge.
Although they made only the faintest pretense of keeping up the attack, the visitors yet kept the ball
moving In a manner which Illustrated the thorough understanding that
existed between every member of
their squad.
Varsity began a series of rushing
tactics which soon forced the visitors to come to grips, and led by
"Fighting" Bob Osborne staged a
rally which had the crowd on their
feet. Laurie Nicholson netted a beautiful running shot from the left, and
Waimsley broke Into the score sheet
with a neat basket. Bob Osborne
was the best man on the floor In
this half.

LOSE 3-0
Playing on the Powell Street tea
of mud Regents cinched first place
in the league by a 3-0 win over Varsity, on Saturday afternoon.
The field was in such bad shape
that it required several minutes to
get accustomed. During this time
both teams pressed but were un-
succesful in scoring. The heavy ball
made clearances weak, and prevented
the play from shifting from end to
end quickly. After about ten minutes, Tyrell, Regent centre-forward,
put in a slow grounder from outside
the penalty area, which fooled Frattinger In the Varsity net. Within ten
minutes, the same player repeated
with a similar shot. Save for these
two shots, Frattinger had been unbeatable, making several fine saves,
and clearing splendidly. Play from
then to half-time was even, with
Varsity falling down with their
passes, spoiling many promising
movements in this way. The Blue
and Gold boys were sure on defense
but could not make a great deal of
head-way on attack. Half-time found
Regents holding a 2-0 lead.
Shortly before the interval, Jock
Waugh was forced to leave the field
with an injured leg, and he was replaced by Bud Cooke on resumption.
It was a bad break for Varsity, as
Waugh's weight was a valuable asset. Play In this half was a continuation of that of the first stanza. Varsity were passing better, and were
dangerous on many occasions. However, it remained for Regents to
score the only goal of the period,
Tyrel snapping up a fumbled goal-
kick to beat one back and give Frattinger no chance. Shortly after this
Kozoolin broke through on a pretty
play but was charged heavily from
behind. The referee, who had been
very lax In the matter of Regent
fouls, signalled for play to continue,
despite the protest of the crowd.
From then to the end Varsity pressed hard, but failed to score.
For Varsity, Costain and McGill
were outstanding, with everybody
giving their best. The field, however, was In no condition for play
and prevented good football. Nevertheless, the Varsity squad never gave
up, and were fighting to the last

2-2 Draw
With both teams playing stale
hockey, Varsity tied 2-2 with Ex-
Prlnce of Wales In the Arena last
Saturday  afternoon  at  two  o'clock.
In the first period both teams
broke through the opposing defence,
but bad combination prevented any/
scoring plays. Towards the end of
the canto however, Fish for the ex-
student took on himself to do some
scoring and batted In a rebound.
Two minutes later he shot a floater
from the blue line to, make the score
two nothing for the black and yellow.
The second period saw a lot of
rushes on the part of both teams but
the plays were broken up and the
session ended' scoreless.

Varsity has nothing to be ashamed
of in bowing to the Ellensburg
quintet last Thursday night. Sans
Mayers, Lee and Straight, the home
crew, held the visitors to 26-21. The
next night Ellensburg took the Adanacs, who have been in hot competition all year, by 28-21.

That "man-in-the-hole" style of
play had Varsity completely baffled
in the first half. Sutphln of Ellensburg would take the ball on the foul
line with his back to the opposing
basket. On a criss-cross play his
two guards would work in and he
would slip one of them the ball and
then make interference for their
shot. Should these players be too
well checked, Sutphln would pivot
and make a one-handed shot. And
his 8 points boosted the Ellensburg
total plenty.   Ask Tony Osborne!

Rowing Club plowed their way
through a muddy field at Brockton
Point Saturday afternoon to' score
one try and thus defeat Varsity 3-0.
This win gives the Clubbers posess-
ion of the Miller Cup.
Both teams presented weakened line-ups, Rowing Club missing
several of its stars who are now
touring Japan while Varsity felt the
absence of Howie Cleveland, Dave
Ellis, Ken Mercer and Bobby Gaul.
A large crowd turned out to see
the final game and Varsity handed{
them plenty of thrills in the last
half when they came within an ace
of scoring on several attempts. The
score was fair indication of the play,
the only break coming when Pinkham went over for a try which was
unconverted. Varsity pressed hard
and took the ball to the Clubber's
line twice in this half. Due to the
muddy field, the three-quarter line
found the going tough and the forwards were called upon to do most
of the work. In the secdhd half Varsity started a three-quarter run
which ended when Dalton was
downed on the Rowing Club line.
Stewart had a chance to get over
later but missed.
Derry Tye and Chris Dalton turned
m nice games for the students and
Bill Hall played a fine game at fullback. It was a great game for the
Clubbers to win as it gives them
the Miller Cup.
with the exception of Arts '35 are
hi, and a survey of the teams seems
to show Science '34 to be the strongest. With Northcott, Sladen, Sinclair and Carey running for them
they will have an almost unbeatable
team. Geo. Allen will be a great
asset to Science '33, and Alf Allen
will bolster up the Soience '33 machine. Science '32 have a husky
group of engineers and will be plodding right along.
In the Arte division Arte '33 looks
good, with Ellis, Snowsell and Fletcher on their line-up. Both Arte '33
