At this time of tbs year, when the sooial whirl has somewhat subsided, and when only the stress ot election campaigns
remains to perplex the undergraduate mind, one ls naturally led
to a few moral reflections upon the time-worn and much-abused
subject of cramming.
It Is perhaps inevitable, considering the Ineradicable tendency of human nature towards procrastination, that scholastic
efforts should be reduced to a minimum during the term ln the
confident expectation that through the miraculous intervention
of Providence the necessary results win in the end be achieved.
But in ths fnat analysis, is thore any adequate reason why the
Wajority of students apparently find it impossible to accomplish
W certain i^ttij^ df coftslstent work throughout the year in
spits of tije manifold activities which offer momentarily super-
tor attractions?
FVw be it from us to dilate upon the primary purpose of a
University education, for the question is, after all, one which
must be settled by each Individual to his own satisfaction. Ih
our perhaps too-ldoalistic opinion, however, the four years at
college only serve to defeat their own ends when they do not
Awaken In the possessors of average intelligence a more or less
intense interest not only in the immediate objects of study but
also in tlie pursuit of knowledge for Its own sake. Is it Impossible, In an institution presumably devoted to higher learning, to combine scholastic and sooial activities ln satisfactory
proportion, or even to derive a certain pleasure from study itself?

bave been crowned in the Upper Common Room, |t A. Pllkington retaining
tbe Senior title for the third successive year and J .Davidson walking
off with the minor event.
Second place ln the Major Cham*
pionsW bid not yet ,been deolded.
Following Pllkington, who has, finish
ei) bis schedule with 9 wins, 3 draws
and no losses, are M. McGregor and
N. Abratoson. Each has won five
games and lost two but while Ahram*
Son has one draw against him, McGregor* has none, and has a winning
position in his adjourned game with
Lane. As these two have not yet met
over the board a tierce game is impending. It is quite possible that
neither of these players will win Hec-
ond place. J. Clayton and C. Garwood
have finished with seven wins and one
draw each, and will not be out of the
picture until of the others has won
two more games.
In the Minor Tourney first and second places have gone to J. Davidson
and JR. Klnntnmont, the former finishing 2ft Sanies ahead of his nearest
rival. The winner and possibly tbe
runner-up of this contest will be promoted to "B" class next year.
A match has been arranged between
the Varsity Chess Club and the Theol-
ogs. It was originally set for Wednesday night but has been postponed
for a week. On the Theolog team
will be Dr. Shrum who won two games
for the Faoulty against the Chess
Club recently. The Club team has not
yet been chosen.
Harry Warren, Arts '25, member of
the Canadian Olympic team, made
certain ot his Blue by winning a place
on the Oifovd University Track team
in the recent University trials, according to Prof. H. T. Logan. Warren beat the field In the hundred
yarda and will run for Oxford against
Cambridge. He is the flrst U. B, C.
graduate to win his Running Blue.
On account of the Easter holiday,
the University will be closed from
Friday, March 29th to Monday, April

A dense oloud of tobacco-smoke filled the Women's Building, Saturday
on the occasion ot the annual Arts-
men's Smoker. Boxing, a 20 yard
dash, speeches by members of the
faoulty, singing by the D. 0. K. K.
Quartet and skits by various undergraduate organisations made up the
long and lively program that lasted
until 12 o'clock.
The flrst item, boxing, provided
plenty of exitement, the battlers
showing more enthusiasm than skill.
None ot the bouts were to a decision.
The 20 yard dash was won by N.
Terry, the Sophomore flash.
The D. O. K. K. quartet which rendered not a few numbers during the
evening, was well received hy the
Dr. Sedgewick, the flrst professor
to apeak, surprised the audience by
seriously scolding them for the apathy
of the University. Tbe other speakers
followed the more traditional Smoker
vein, Prof. Logan singing the woes
of Romeo and Juliet, Prof. Soward ex
plaining how he had been mistaken
for a Freshie and Dr. Shrum describing a new use for pumpkins.
Skits were presented by the Society
of Thoth, and the classes of '32, '31
and '30. The most outstanding of
these were the Thoth Club's daring
number "Living Statues" and Arts
•30's "Crystal Casing."
Mr. McKelvle, of radio fame, proved
most popular, his impersonations win
nlng long applause.

Way baok la the little apple town
of Wlnesap, situated In the core of
Okanagan Country, a little frail old
lady ls waiting hopefully tor news of
her sou's election. She Is Ma Me*
Ooofus. white-haired mother of the
People's Candidate, and she has ua*
swerving faith In the dear boy's sue*
To visitors she sometimes shows a
oberished picture of Rufus ln his baby'
hood, sprawled gurgling on bis turn*
my. "My boy," she whispers, with
tears in her voice, "my own boy, the
apple of my ef."
"I know he will do bis best for the
Ssople. He is so mild and kind to
Is old mother. He always thanks
me so nicely when I send bim money
to buy books. He ls always buying
books, ball very studious."
Here In Varsity, whenever tbe
Stress ot campaigning allows bim a
Soment to himself, R. MoOoofus,
e People's Friend, is gaslng fond*
ly on a little golden locket that he always wears neat to his heart
"Oood little mother," he murmurs.
"She has set her heart on my due*
cess. For her sake I must win, How
oould I keep up all my social activities It she didn't send me money tor
toy books/'
To-day the people make the decision that means so muoh to this
pair. Let them not forget that a
vote for MoOoofus means a vote tot
a safe, sane, sound and snappy regime.
Anpry Aggies Ask
For Vote Probe
Aggie circles and Aggie grain
growers are highly Incensed at the
insult proffered tbem by the Rt. Hon.
Tolmie. He openly announced on the
front page ot the Ubyssey that a straw
vote Would be taken among the stu
dents on the Financial Manager
Syatem. The members of Agricul
ture consider this a direct affront
upon the condition of their Common
room which ls to everyone's knowl
edge bedded down with straw.
A committee Is being formed at
present to thrash out this matter with
tha President. Various points such
as the senior having the advantage
on account of their stack privileges
and the Players' Club members who
know tholr oats, will be settled. Special care will be taken by the committee to see that things won't go
Probably when tbe chaff has been
separated from the fruit and the
stooks have been winnowed from the
divots and t*»e greens have been faithfully curried the aubject will be
"We like a man who calls a spade
a spade," spoke the Aggie committee
foreman. He went on to say that he
hoped the same meeting methods
would be adopted as those of the recent milk probe.
A rigid vegetarian diet will prevail
at all Council meeting whilst the straw
vote ts being discussed. Hay will be
the motif of the floor design to make
the Aggies feel at home.
The committee Is comprised of: Master Cato; Mr. M. Lerner, Squire Yar-
wood; Miss Agatha Stewart; and
Farmer Harold Cliffe.
Oray K.: How do you feel?"
K. Oray: Like a census."
Oray K,: "How's that?"
K. Oray: "Like embracing ten million women."

so confident of his victory that they
demand the Inaugural to take plaoe
tbe day before the election.
Voters should not be deterred hy

screaming "Vote for MoOoofus, the'
people's friend," since Rufus is con*
ducting a whispering campaign.
A last minute speech will be given
