VANCOUVER, B.C., FRIDAY, JANUARY 13, 1939
No. 23
CAMPUS CLUBS MAY HAVE
BIG PART IN OPEN HOUSE
FEBRUARY   11TH   WILL.   BE   DATE
AT HOME.    BILL. BACON TO BE
FOR   U.B.C.'S
IN CHARGE
This year's "Open House," which will be held on Saturday,
February 11, will be in charge of Bill Bacon of the University
Engineering Society.
Bacon, who helped with last year's Open Day, will work in
conjunction with W.U.S. and M.U.S. in handling a committee,
which will co-operate with the Faculty in making all necessary
arrangements.
Thoae appointed to tbe above oommittee are: Carson McOulre, Jaok Davis, Bill Baoon, Darrell Braldwood, Len Zinok
and L. Oarvie.
DIFFERENT OPINIONS
Despite the faot that there have
been different opinion on the oampua as to whether or not "Open
House"' should be held this year,
thoae in charge feel that they will
be successful in promoting the
venture in this, its second successive
year.
Dean Buchanan is ln favor of the
Open Day, and believes that ths
committee will be able to And the
required funds. Dean Finlayson is
also In favor. The Faoulty is, however, divided in opinion.
The Students' Council has diclded
that "Open House" will in future
be held every seoond year.
CAMPUS CLUBS
There are   two  reasons  why  It
should be considerably better this
year than in the past.   Firstly, the
Artsmen will  be taking part   for
their second year, and will benefit by the experience whloh   tbey
have gained, and secondly, because
tt Is hoped to have a number of
the campus cluba taking part.
In 1938 the University was not open
during the morning of "Open House"
day.    It ls expected  that this year's
"At Home" will  be  an  all-day  feature.
A great deal of help will be needed
ln the preparation of "Open House,"
end the committee ln charge will be
glad to enlist the services of any
volunteers.
BUST DESTROYS
SCIENCE BUILDING
AT MANITOBA U.
Winnipeg, Jan. 13  (Cup):  Explod
Ing propane gas practically wrecked
the sclenoe building of the University of Manitoba here at eight twenty
Thursday morning.
Originating apparently in the third
floor botany laboratories the blast
blew out all the windows on that
floor, hurled down partitioning walls,
and destroyed part of the ceiling.
Two workmen present ln the
building are ln the Victoria Hospital
Winnipeg.
They were badly burned and will
not be recovered for three weeks.
The damage to the building ls estimated  at  upwards  from  $08,000.
Fire breaking out after the blast
was controlled and extinguished before further damage  was  done.
The larger part of the Botany
museum -was destroyed, and all experiments in the building -were ruined by the fierce blasts of air which
rushed through the building leaving
a trail of wreckage.
Walls on the second floor were
shaken and cracked -wherever gas
pipes ran throughout the building.
Walls were blow out and the plumbing  wrecked.
The debris hurled through the
windows Included the tops and drawers of a table, window frames, and
botanical specimens. The hat of one
of the Injured men was found in
the football field one hundred yards
from   the  building.
The beautiful stained glass windows and marble tiling of the faculty
and  common   rooms  were  destroyed.
The cause of the explosion is unexplained. Propane gas Is an odorless
gas, but it la understood tbat It ls
mixed In the university plant with
materials giving it a detectable
smell.
The force of the explosion may be
■withered from the fact that the first
floor doors, locked at the time, were
blown open, and locks and hingon
smashed.
The building is closed to everyone
at present, and an Investigation is
pending. |
CSA TO START
CAMPAIGN FOR
SCHOLARSHIPS
Canada's half-million dollar national scholarship campaign, backed
by the Oanadlan Student Assembly,
gets under way this week on the
U.B.O. campus with the official .approval of Students' Council.
At the regular Monday evening
meeting Counoil gave Its approval
to the national scholarships campaign under the chairmanship of
Clarence Idyll.
»_©0 EACH.
The   C.S.A.   scholarship   campaign,
at present being carried out  on all
campuses   of   Canadian   universities,
has as Its objective the securing of
a federal grant ln March of $500,000
to be divided Into one thousand WOO
awards for  brilliant but needy  students in each of the nine provinces.
From    present    plans    such    awards
would be made by provincial boards
ln  such  numbers  as population  and
financial,   as   well   as   scholastic   requirements     made     necessary.     The
means by which this objective will be
gained is by securing the support of
citizens   ln   communities   throughout
Canada   to   apply   pressure   to   their
local members in Ottawa, and meetings, radio programs, and methods of
personal contact have been arranged.
A resolution for a bill to provide
for national scholarships was Introduced In Parliament In 1937 by Paul
Martin, liberal M.P. from Ontario,
and, although It was supported by
several   members,   It  was   defeated
through lack of support.
The   U.B.O.   campaign   committee,
under  Clarence  Idyll,  has  held two
meetings   ln   the   laat   few   days,   at
which primary organisation work has
been carried out in co-operation with
the   national   executive   in   Eastern
Canada.
Sub-committees on campus endorsement, statistics for the carrying
on of the campaign in Vancouver
and Provincial High Schools, ln the
lesser towns throughout the province,
and ln service clubs, have been arranged for and the preliminary
groundwork for ways and means laid
by  the local executive.

Frosh! Come one, come all—even
If you come feet first!
Elections for the president  and
exeoutive of Arts '*» will be held
Tuesday, January  IT, nominations
aro  now   In  order,  and  will  close

Only one nomination is in to date,
that of Bob MacFarlane,. for president. Nominees for all offices are
expected to register shortly. Counoil,
acting through Davis and apRoberts,
is of course in charge.
Oreenies are taking their usual
lethargic interest in the whole thing.
Your raving reporter unoovered the
following:
A sweet young freshette* "What

A fraternity rusheei "I'm Just so
excited  .  .  .   t"
A frosh humorist t "Sure I voted,

■TAUT PATTON
By ORMB DIER
Thunderbirds on skates ore the centrol attraction of'a monster
College Night featured ot the Hastings Pork Porum tonight at
eight when the Vnrsity Ico Hockey team plays the Air Force squad
in the second gome of a double header in the Senior League.
Tho league-leading New Westminster Clubs engage tho
Dumont outfit in the opening game, and nn exhibition of fancy
skating will' bo held in tho intermission between the two games.
This Is the "first time in hockeyr
history that Varsity has ever given
their knlghta of the ice any real
support, and with the band out in
full force to "Hall U.B.C." the blue
and gold squad to victory, the men
who wield the hickory for the honor
and glory of their Alma Mater are
odd-on favorites to repeat their
former decisive win over the airmen.
RESERVE TICKETS FREE
Those lucky students who pick
up   special   reserve   seats   at   tho
quad box office today on showing
their student passes will not only
see two of the, best hookey games
scheduled by tbe Vanoouver Senior
League, but will also have a chance
to aee four of the finest exhibitions
of fancy skating ln western Canada.
The Lambeth Walk on skates highlights this part of the program, with
Mary and Joan Taylor tripping the
light fantastlcs of the English danoe
on their shining blades. The Woods
girls combine In a clever duet that
Is well known all up and down the
Pacific coaat for Its grace and
rhythm.
FANCY FANCY SKATING!
Mary Taylor then renders a solo
number, and Four Scotch Otrls do
o modified version of the Htghlang
fling as the grand finale to the fancy
skaters'  part of the  program.
No less than iiOO of Hts Majesty's
Airmen are turning out en masse to
give vocal and moral support to their
heroes of the hockey rink, and the
flyers claim to have mustered a
cheering section that will drown out
not only the Varsity band, but the
student supporters as wel).
So If you have a good voice and
like a good old fashioned knock-'em-
down and drag-'em-out hockey brawl
that puts Shakespeare and Poe to
shame for sheer drama and suspense,
get your reserve ticket right now
and be at the Forum at 9 p.m. Friday night.
PEP MEET TOO
Stan Patton and his hockey-mad
orchestra appear ln the auditorium
today noon to stir up interest ln the
game and if you enjoy his musio, -we
guarantee you will enjoy the hockey
liame ten times more. It Is even
reported that one of our more enlightened fraternities ls using the
game as a rushing function.
Remember the Thunderbirds are
gunning for the title this year, they
need   your   support,   the   game   Is
free,  and  the  band   will   be  there.
We'll be seeing you too!
ANOTHER SCOOP FOR THE TOTEM!
I never Saw a Purple Cowl
I never Hope to See one;
But I oan Tell you, Anyhow,
I'd rather See than Be one.
And above you see the original—
the one and only—Purple Cow. lis
being whispered about that "Purple,"
as she Is oalled by those who know
her well, Is rapidly displacing our
famous Rosalind ln popularity
among our local bovine fanciers.
Professor King of the Animal Husbandry Department is her owner,
nnd, we have It on best authority
that La Cow will be another of the
features   of   the   1D30   super-Totem.
So if you haven't ordered yours yet
(Totem not Cow)  do so immediately.

OPEN HOUSE
In only a little over five weeks, o February 11, the university
will put before the publio another "Open House" demonstration
of the work done ot the university. The oommittee in charge
probably does-not realize the quantity of work involved in the
preparation of the exhibits. Even though many of the departments have anticipated the event and have preliminary preparations, Ave weeks hardly seems sufficient to execute such a tremendous undertaking.
Although the groups working on demonstrations will benefit
greatly from their experience of last year it will take the earnest
work of every student if "Open Huose" is to be successful. We
sincerely hope that a sufficiently large group of workers will assist
the director, Bill Bacon, in order that he will not have to neglect
his academic work entirely.

Dear Editor:
Last night about 1:30 my girl Chlorophyll reminded me I had to write
a column for you today. Oosh, Ed, I
forgot clean about it but realized you
hadda have something for the space,
I am sending the above pitcher.
This gentleman personifies the
spirit of Science—dauntless. He's got
no car—no girl—and he's only half
there himself—but still he's going to
the Science  Brail.    And  no  wonder.
The Science Ball, to be held this year
February 16, ls going to be super
swell. Tickets are only $3.00 a couple
and will be sold only to Sciencemen.
It will be preceded by a monster Pep
meet to which Artsmen can come but
the Jokes will be over their heads!

It's an amazing thing, when you
come to think of lt, how many people believe
ON CHEWINO OUM. what they see
in print. It's
not quite so astounding, however, to
discover that most of the people who
believe what they read are those who
have learned very little more than
just how to read.
The latter statement may be verified, I think, by a quick glance
around at those whose literary recreation is taken in the fields of pulp-
magazines, bill-boards, and oomlc-
strip ads for Orape-nuts, yeast cakes,
dentifrices—and chewing gum.
It's a fact. The gum-chewlngest
people In the world today are the
shop-girls, taxi-pilots, telephone operators, etc. Even a low salary will
buy a nlqkel magaslne. And such
publications fairly scream oral hygiene from every page. Mary Smith
lands the big Job because of a beautiful smile enhanoed by gleaming
teeth; Jane Doe gets her man because her teeth are pearly; and although Pepsodent does a certain
amount of this good work, Mr. Wrig-
ley would have us believe that he Is
Cupid, prettily done* up ln garnish
wrappers, Ave In a bundle for a
nickel.
By this time, you're probably
thinking that I'm a crank about
gum-chewing. That I think It's
cheap, vulgar, and corny. Nothing Is
farther from the truth. But let's go
on.
Very few students at U.B.O., I
hope, read Liberty or such magazines.
But I know some read Esquire and
other fifty-centers. And even these
"top" mags advertise gum. But
whether studes read the ads or not,
some of them chew gum. Not very
many, I'll admit, but a few. A bit of
research shows that between 160 and
300 packets are sold every week In
the Caf.
Now I'm not going to Insult our
campus gum-chewers by suggesting
that they believe the ads. I'm post
tive that anybody with a trained
mind wouldn't chew gum because he
thinks it la good for the teeth and
gums.
So there must be another reason.
And. ao far as I'm concerned, there
can be only one. If university people
aren't susceptible to modern American high-pressure advertising, they
must chew gum of their own free
will. They ohew gum because they
like to chew gum. Just as I do.
What the lower gum-chewing
classes don't understand, and what
we of the university do, ls that gum
chewing, in many cases, is a means
of overcoming inhibitions, of defeating an inferiority oomplex, of sublimating nervous energy. In this capacity, gum has a definite value, and
fulfills a definite demand in the life
of modern, high-strung youth.
Well, this problem might have been
approached from a different angle.
But at last we come to,the big point.
I can understand why gum-chewing ls not permitted in public and
high school classes. In the flrst place,
those poor kids haven't yet learned
to think for themselves. They have
to be told that they're displaying
definite mob characteristics when
they chew gum. And besides, discipline has to be taught in some way—
and gum affords the opportunity.
,B_t here, when we are dealing with
grown-ups who have learned to think
for themselves, and when we are presented with definite psychological
proof as to the value of chewing
gum, the high sohool attitude seems
to be a bit superfluous. We've all been
through that, or we wouldn't be here.
And now that we're here, and on
our own, so to speak, lt seems hardly
necessary to point out that we should
be given credit for enough intelligence to form our own decisions as
to whether or not we wish to chew
gum.
I would like to go on record as
having wondered what parliamentary
right a professor has to insult a student in front of all his—or her—
classmates, for doing a bit of innocuous gum-chewing. And I'm warning
all professors, here and now, that the
first one who speaks to me about
chewing gum in class will receive a
carton  of Wrigley's,  by  return mall.
My parents told me not to smoke:
I don't;
Or* listen to a naughty Joke:
I don't;
They make lt clear I must not wink
At pretty girls, or even think
About intoxicating drink:
I don't.
To dance or flirt is very wrong:
I don't;
Wild  youths   like  women,   wine  and
song:
I don't;
I kiss no girls, not even one,
I do not know how lt is done:
Vou   wouldn't  think   I'd  have  much
fun— *
I don't.
* *     *
And  here   ls   what   my  fan mail
(Ood bless her I) brought me in reply
to my poem of last Tuesday:
Oh if you were a kangaroo
With all his funny stances,
Vou'd never get a girl, Dear Lew,
Who'd go with you to dances!

By J. D. MACFARLANE
In case any of U.B.C.'s lethargic
campus occupants should wake up
long enough to wonder what use a
campus paper is, we thought it a
good Idea if we were to offer a little
enlightenment on the subject.
Many people have some kind of a
sour idea, no doubt based on their
own thoughts and habits, that the
Ubyssey, and other such publications,
are centers of unemployment activity
existing so that a few crackbrained
people can have their verbal fling.
We are much amused by the way
ln which some people came roaring
into the office the day Varsity opened
after the Christmas holidays and
demanded a Ubyssey. This seems to
be significant that some people are
sufficiently awake to want to And
out what ls going on around our fair
oampus.
Further, evidence of this part
which the Ubyssey plays In oampua
life is the fact that when the Ubyssey
ceases publication late in the spring
term so that the staff can prepare
for examinations, we, and our confreres are continually being approached by all and sundry with the
questions "What's going on," and
"what happened at suoh and suoh
an affair."
From thla we would say that, in Its
essence your oampua newspaper
playa the part of co-ordinating university student affairs, and of giving
students the possibility of getting
together with their friends in the
activities they And most congenial
with the protracted and involved, to
say nothing of inaccurate and inadequate system of the grape-vine.
And there is, aside from this, the
matter of student opinion, thrqugh
which all things' worthy of a progressive student body are done. This
you may also find consolidated and
disseminated in your Ubyssey editorial columns.
However, be thia as it may, we
really started out to ramble hither
and yon, in an attempt to locate
some of our lost brethren. For It is
from the records of these men that
we And another reason for the existence of campua Journalism.
From the university papers
throughout Canada present day edl-
eors of dally newspapers pick their
staff. This fact Is becoming established as a veritable rule, and most
journals demand university men in
their organizations.
Outstanding on Vancouver papers
are suoh men as Alan Morley and
Kenny Orant of the Vanoouver Daily
Sun, Norman Hacking, Edgar Brown,
and Himie Koshevoy of the Provlnoe.
Himle was originally with the Mews
Herald before he moved over to the
Provlnoe this year. Another News
Herald man Is Dorwln Baird, recognised by Vanoouver editors as one
of the most up and coming young
newsmen in Vancouver. Dorwln is
now with radio station CJOR and is
making really great time. Many
here know -Darby of old, and many
more of Vancouver's oitlaens know
his voice as it oomes over Texaoo
news, Signal Oil, This Week in History, and many other features.
Outstanding amongst Vancouver's
young newsmen from the University
of B.C. ls John Dauphinee, day editor of the Canadian Press. Johnny
was senior editor of the Ubyssey in
in 1038, which was our flrst yea**
here, and, at the same time, he was
the Varsity correspondent for the
Dally Province, as well aa regular
reporter.
Another young fellow whom many
know is last year's senior editor,
Frank Perry, now an editor of the
Prince Oeorge Citizen.

was obtained after great difficulty
and will be one of the most enjoyable pictures to be seen this year.
Ita quiet simplicity and moving story
combine to make an Interesting picture. The film was photographed ln
Lapland and authentically portrays
the traditions and ouatoms of that
country.
At the general meeting to be held
today in Arts 100 the polloy of the
coming months will be decided and

By way of this investigation we
also noted in our Canadian University Press detail that Larry Alexander, of the Alberta Oateway, who
worked with us so well for several
years on the 'Western Intercollegiate
Press Union, and last year on Canadian University Press, now owns his
own paper in Yellowknife, N.W.T.,
where he, with his former Oateway
associate Chuck Perkins, has started up the "Yellowknife Prospector,"
a bi-weekly sheet of some six pages
published with the aid of a oouple of
typewriters and a mimeographing
machine.
The paper has a circulation of
some 800, almost the entire population of the town and carries mining
as -well as local and outside news,
together with advertising shipped
in from Edmonton.
Yellowknife is a small mining
town in the North West Territories,
which has sprung up with the discovery of gold deposits. It has grown
in a few short years from a group
of tents to a thriving town with
stores, an up-to-date hotel, numerous
cafes and drug stores, a fully equipped theatre, and many other features
of Interest.
We -wish to congratulate Larry on
his achievement ln pioneering in
one of the moat difficult professions
which he could have picked for suoh
a task . . . the task of developing
new territory.
This, in a small way, ia just a brief
Indication of what the Ubyssey, and
any other campus newspaper, means
in university life. It Is, just as much
as lectures and labs, an education
for future life.

Only thirteen weeks till April exams we are reminded . . . and
many students will spend an extra hour studying each evening. Comfort and studying can go hand in hand. Jvlrs. Paton's Lingerie Shop,
2793 Granville Street, has flannel robes which are included in their
special January sales. A particularly attractive robe is of soft green
with white corduroy velvet trim and large capacious pockets ....
There are tailored models coo ... in all the latest color tones and chic
black with white polak dot trim . . .of all the egotists we have ever
known, Chang Suey takes the cake ... he wanders around among his
unsuspecting friends and asks them how. they liked Chang Suey this
week . . . and they poor souls, not knowing the identity of C. S., unwittingly venture to express their real opinions. A friend of ours who
was on the bus, remarked to us the other day that Chang "must be a
genius to be so dumb!" . . . other flattering robes are in dirndl style
of rose, navy, russet; zippered full-length up the front with tassled
zipper catch. Sophistication is in every line of the bonnington robe
of black with thread-thin stripe of red, and the suave trouser-leg
sleeve.

We have been wondering if there was going to be a milk shake
marathon. A dark-haired lad from the Union college is in fine fettle
for such a test. He has reached the stage that he can quaff in succession six sweet full-sized milk shakes . . . even the dairy manager
is interested and by drinking one more to his total on each visit, the
management throws in another one free . . . and the student never
mixes his flavors . . . always chocolate.

Ladies take a bowl Riding habits made to measure are a speciality of Fred Holmes, 2845 Granville Street. There are also some
ready to wear English jodphura in very fine bedford cord with leather
knee reinforcements and straps . . . colors for these range from beige
to British tan. Tiny riding vests to match or harmonize in shades
may be obtained also. ,
Two-piece tweed suits imported from London  are popular, for

When one buys a dress, one often wonders what the men will
think about it. So we decided to ask Chang Suey's advice concerning
frocks and gowns for coeds. At Lora Lee's Dress Shop, 2814 Granville Street, he picked out an array of gorgeous dresses in blue, his
favorite color. One was a charming afternoon dress with' black skirt
and top of robin's egg blue with silver thread stripes. This is one that
is included in the gala dress sale and priced at $10.95. Another model
that took his fancy was the double-collared silk crepe frock. One
collar is white and underneath it is a collar of the same material as
the dress. Tiny pleated edgings go from neck to pleat tip in front
while  the tucked  short sleeves are shirred  -\i  the shoulder  line.
For evening, pastel blue chiffon gown with tiny bolero jacket,
which when removed gives a formal effect. The bodice of the gown is
whaleboned  and  narrow  straps of  blue  are detachable.
Thank you C.S. A freshette has upset the dignity of the pepster
males by appearing at their table at the most inconvenient times . . .
they are a masculine organization and wish to remain so . . . any ladies
present are accidental.

Junior coeds and Sciencemen's lights should visit Rae-son's Mezzanine Floor, 644 Granville Street for their evening slippers. AH shoes

Slippers tinted to match the favorite gown are smart and are a
feature of the Mezzanine Floor.
Dainty sandals in satin and velvet with open toe and heel. The

Campus shoes of every variety and every height of heel may be

MUSIC SOCIETY BUSY
REHEARSING FOR
OPERA
A girl sits at the piano ln the
Auditorium, playing a quiet, beautiful piece from "Serenade." Two
stagehands are at work, preparing
the stage for the operetta. There
is so little noise or activity that it
is hard to believe that "Serenade"
will be ready for production ln six
short weeks.
But an hour later the same atage
ls the oentre of a veritable cyolone
of activity. The chorus Is in position on stage; stage hands, "extras,"
and "understudys," throng every bit
of spaoe behind the set; the directors
are literally everywhere at once.
"Serenade" is in rehearsal!
This is the atmosphere whioh pervades the auditorium aa the production date for the Musical Society's
operetta draws near.
Various committees are always at
work  off   the   stage,    handling    the
business    end    of    the    production.
Their  task   ls   to   provide   publicity,

of the other essentials  that all culminate in a successful showing.

said that under government control
distribution and consumption oould
be Increased, as a result of lowered
prices, especially in rural distriota.
Amy Hackney of the opposing side
said that the government haa no

VARSITY TACKLES AIRMEN AT FORUM TONIGHT
COLLEGE NITE
FEATURE FOR
HOCKEYISTS
Tonight, at the Forum, our rapidly
Improving hockey team will match
its speed and skill against the heavier Air Force sextette, game starting
at 9 o'clock.
Having upset the league-leading
flew Westminster Cubs 4-3 last Friday, the boys are eager to defeat the
Airmen tonight to Insure themselves
of a play-off spot.
Lanky goalkeeper, Ed Benson, is
one of Varsity's biggest hopes and If
he continues his outstanding work
between the pipes, the Students can
look for a convincing victory.
Newly-appointed Coach Frith has
developed ' a scoring combination
which utilises the fast breaking and
sure passing of Jim Harmer and the
Oulguet brothers, Charles and Marcel.
MORE LINES.
On the second line Jaok McArthur,
Orme Dier, and Jim Ussher work
smoothly together and excel in back-
checking which plays havoc with
their opponent's offensive.
The "kid line" composed of freshmen Frith, Kapak, and OUI, gain experience by relieving the flrst two
lines. Much Is expected from this
young trio which has already shown
its scoring ability.
The defense positions are shared
by Jack Moxon, Angi Provenzano,
and Maury Lambert.
The games which provide an exciting brand of hockey should rate a
better attendance than they have so
far—so let's give our ice-squad more
support ln this game tomorrow nite.
HE BANGS 'EM IN... HE BANGS 'EM OUT
For the flrst time In history our Intrepid cameraman Invaded the sacred

HOCKEY   TICKETS  O.K.
There seems to be a certain amount of doubt concerning the validity
of the hockey tlokets being sold on
the campus and which are labelled
Dec. 33. The Ubyssey sports staff in
general and the hockey club in particular hereby assures those concerned that everything is on the up

ST. REGIS ON
SOCCER BILL
Mad as hatters beoause of the
postponement of their Chllllwaek
jaunt Wednesday, Varsity soccermen will be just aching to tear into
St. Regis by the time Saturday comes
and the ball ls centred off at Cambie
St.  at 2.30.
The hotelmen are one of the surprises of the league so far this season and the campusmen are sure to
have a tough battle on their handa.
Weeks of practice and efforts to get
ln shape leave Charlie Hutchens'
boys Just oozing optimism from
every  pore.
SICKLIST SICKLY
As we have said about three times
before, the soccermen are now virtually devoid of injuries. The forward line will be much more deadly
with McMillan back to put more
punch into  the  attack.
The defense is fairly dependable
with Croll and Mizuhara, and the
bruising John Affleck ls ready to
take over at left back ahould Mizuhara be moved  up to the half line.
RENOVATION
-Oennia Leong, a renovated half
hack, has been turning in a series
of sparkling performances in the
student net and no apprehension is
felt   on   that   score.
Fred Sasaki and Jack Rush are a
pair of steady half-backs vho can
always bo depended on to get
through a lot of work, Rush being an
excellent perfornier In the third-

the   more   constructive   player.

Well    apyhow,    Juat    supposing
there la a game, It takes place at
the  STADIUM, Saturday, 3.80.
LINK-UP
Once again the line-up goes
through the juggling process. This
time we have another excuse to add
lo injuries and exams, namely retirement. About two things are certain, one, that Captain Strat Leggat
will be playing, two, that the injured
Vic Moore -will not be on the Anally
picked'fifteen. Forwards will be Robson, Jenkins, Davies, Mason, Oardlner, Harrison, Mattu, and Harmer.
Backfleld slots will be exclusively
occupied by Bird, fullback, Leggat
and Tremblay, wings, Lumsden, Hall
and Ted McPhee insides. Half position for this week held by Sandy
Lang.

The Grads have yet to win a

will be wearing the Varsity colours

stalwart scrum man who -will be
hearkening to the call of the Dean's
Instructions while Alec Urquhart and
Fred Billings may not be In the lineup for similar reasons.
The rest of the team will not be
known until Saturday, but it la almost certain that Bob (Smith 'will
lead the same high-flying baokfleld
Into action that has struck fear into
the hearts of every team in the
league in games ao tar this season.

SCORE GIVES
VARSITY WIN
By ORMIE HALL
Varsity's majors of the maple
court won the dlpsy-doodle crown
last Wednesday when they beat the
Dominion champs, Westerns 43-43 by
the offlolal score, tied them 43-43 bv
the Varsity score, and lost 41-44 by
the score board.
UPSET CHAMPS
Such was the mess that greeted
league official Mert Oordon right
after the game whloh saw the Varsity rookies outspeed and outhustle
the Dominion champs. Led by Rann
Matthison, and By Straight, and
sparked throughout by the pivot-
playing of Lucas, the Blue and Oold
upset the dopecart that had them
labeled for the scrap heap and carried the game to the Westerns.
From your reporters angle behind
a post in the west section. Varsity
were the winners—by the simple
process of Just sinking one too many
baskets. When this commentator
arrived at the game half way
through the third section Varsity
were sinking them right and left and
at the end ot the stansa were ahead
8 points, 38-87.
Westerns were a soared bunoh of
hoopers at this stage of the evening's
entertainment and  couldn't seem to
do anything right.
GOLD  DUST  TWINS
However, paradoxically they started to click early In the last quarter
as soon as their start point getter,
Art Willoughby was benched for
four personals. Perhaps Joe the
butcher boy, who was sitting behind
me, explained the whole thing when
he said "Now somebody else on that
team besides Bardsley and Willoughby will get their hands on the ball."
Anyhow they pulled a couple of
smooth plays that sent the Varsity
youngsters Into a spin and soon they
were ahead—according to the unofficial score board. Tough luck for
them for they didn't rate the same
way with the official scorer and with
the score 43-41 in their favour with
a minute to go they stalled instead
of picking up the point that they
were actually behind.
NOTICE
Tracksters are reminded that the
first meeting of the current season
is to be held ln the gym next Tuesday, Jan. 17, at 12.30. All aspirants
to positions on the track team are
reminded to be present at this organisation get-together in order to

       t :
don't deem to be able to win another
game after their epoch-making victory over Cunninghams last fall for
again on Monday at V.A.C. they
dropped anohter tilt with the same
team.
WILSON,  BURNHAM  STAR
Behind the plucky work of Ruth
Wilson and Faye Burnham, the blue
and gold team played themselves out
and even managed to hold the rampaging winners to 9-8 at the breather, but could not beat their sure,
confident, playing in the second half.
A large factor ln the blue and gold
defeat was the astounding ability of
our girls to miss free shots—in all
the collegians sank but three of the
twenty  awarded  them.
Team—Wilson, 6; McEwen, 1; Collins, 1; Burnham, 6; Martin, 2; Harris;   Asselstlne;   Kjos,   2.
A large crowd of college rooters
were out to encourage the co-eds,
but evidently even this Inspiration
wasn't  sufficient.
