Congregation
Highlight of the Fall Congregation on October 27 will be the moment when Premier T. D. Pattullo,
K.C., becomes a Doctor of Laws
and Letters. He will be the thirtieth person to receive such an honor from thla unlveralty,
VARIED   CAREER
Upon    graduation    from    high
sohool    In    Woodstoek,    Ontario,
Mr.   Pattullo   became   a   reporter
on the Oalt "Informer," later be-
oomlng editor.    In 1898 ha Joined
the   Klondike   ruah,  and,  after  a
brief survsy of ths field, embarked upon a brokerage and financial
enterprise.     The   following   year
he was appolntad seeratary of the
Yukon  Counoil.    He also aerved
as   assistant   gold   oommlssionsr
for thrss yeara and  was elaotad
to the Dawaon City Counoil.
'   On moving to Prince Rupert, Mr.
Pattullo   was  elected   to   the   City
Council   there,   and   after   serving
one  term  became  mayor.     In  1916
he was the successful Liberal candidate for that constituency, being
re-elected  in   1920, .1924,  1928,  1933
and 1936.
CHOSEN  LIBERAL  LEADER
Hia first term saw him elevated
to   the   cabinet,   aa   minister   of
lands.    He remained In offloe until   the   defeat   of   his   party   in
1928, at whieh time he was chosen aa Liberal leader for B. C. Ho
aat In the Houae aa leader of tha
opposition till  1933, whan he led
hia party to viotory in tha general
eleotion.
His   administration   retained   the
coudence of the people at the election of last June, when a large Liberal   majority   was   returned.   The
session of the new Legislature has
been   set  for  October   26.
When the Hon. Mr. Pattullo receives the degree, he will hold the

Editors   Plan
Big Totem
Somebody or other has set the
precedent of publishing a bigger
and better Totem every year. Being firm believers in ancient custom and tradition, we will respect
the precedent. This year once again
there will be a bigger and better
Totem.
Making the Totem bigger is a
matter of finance and rests with
Council. Making the Totem better
is up to the editors and students.
The students can help by taking
photographs of themselves -while
ot work, in love, in lectures, at
parties, or just sitting, and by
bringing these photos to the Pub.
Offlce where they will be bartered
for at great profit to the student.
All pictures published will be credited to their taker. Honor and glory
is to be had for the snapping.—D.C.

Pipe-Smoking  Artsmen
By BOB KINO
Ardis Colbourne, sprlgthly co-ed
from the University of Alberta, told
all to a Ubyssey reporter over a
cup of Caf coffee on Monday morning, revealing in a loud whisper
that she always trips over bearskin
rugs.
While the reporter apprehensively peeked under the table expecting to find nothing less than a grizzly, Ardis explained that her real
reason for coming to U. B. C. was
an earnest quest for pipe-smokers.
"They're so dignified," she explained, as her interviewer fired up
his   Kaywoodie.
Apart from her phobia for soo-
logioal carpeting, Ardis' main dl-
flculty on our campua aeama to
be in distinguishing between atudenta   and   profeaaora.
"The faculty are all ao young
snd cheerful, while the atudenta
aeam to wear exaggerated frowna
and hang-dog appearancea generally. In Alberta I oould alwaya
tell the botaniata and geologlata
by their double-lens spectaclea
and baggy trouaera, and the engineer! were all terribly rugged.
Here everyone looka the ume;
perhapa Artsmen are a little
more   masculine."
Miss Colbourne was born ln Vancouver, and received her early education here, attending Point Orey
Junior High. She took senior matriculation in Edmonton, and last
year received 81 per cent in second
year Arts at the University of Alberta, where she was a member of
the Cercle Francals and the badminton club.
Ardis stated emphatically that
she is not going to teach, her vocational preferences being journalistic and secretarial. She is majoring  in   English   Psychology.
The beauty of buildings and general size of the U. B. C. campus
made a real impression on the visitor, who deplored the crowding of
buildings on the Alberta campus.
"The Library here In its grassy setting is exceptionally beautiful," she
affirmed, "and I am' struck with the
potentialities of development here."
Alberta lacks a Caf., she said,
but the Btudenta make good use
of a couple of tuck shops which
operate very successfully near the
campus.

Freshette Bean Feed
Staged in Caf
Through an ever - Increasing
bluish murk, green-capped freshmen last night yelled, sang, and
generally committed mayhem on
their already overtaxed throats at
the annual Frosh Smoker. Sophomores in attendance created the
usual bedlam of swelling sound
which yearly makes even the
mounted moose on the walls look
pained.
Chris Kenny, magician and ventriloquist, flrst entertained the boys
with a demonstration of the fact
that the manual appendages are
speedier than the spectatory organs,
after which he and his dummy held
a protracted conversation.
Oeorge Wood and Hse Trudsau

their reapaet.
The cider, in spite of the promises   of   the   committee,   was    the
same  faintly   vinegary   and   totally
mysterious   brown   liquid   that  has
gained the groaning board of Frosh
Smokers    from    the    beginning    of
time,   and   the   crackers   were   just
crackers.
After a few enthusiasts attempted to organize a snake parade, the
greenaters clambered into street
cars and hoarsely talked their way
home.

FRESHETTE   SUPPER
Dressed in boys' clothes from
flrst to second degree childhood,
last night's Bean Feed proved the
best success in a number of years.
Each freshette escorted a big sister and in some cases two big sisters.
Peggy Fox, president of W. U. S.,
introduced the freshettes to the
more advanced stages of initiation
which took the form of a Coo-coo
game. Each thirteenth girl being
required to punch those freshettes
who had not worn complete insignia were also admitted to the tortures.
The Co-Coo game being a punching apparatus, such results as
"Kiss the girl with the longest
finger-nails" supplied the amusement for the evening.

Thaao,   like   other   email   murmuring groupa of thsir brsthrsn,

they tasted, aa no freshmen have
taatad   fer   three   yeara,   the   de-
llghta of ducking In the Illy pond.
Under leaden skies Friday noon
the three years' dead custom of lily
pond   aquatics   was   revived   when
frosh and sophs staged a wide open
exhibition of initiation rioting, ending at the side of the pond in front
of the library,
HAND  TO   HAND
Following a fresh yell practice in
the auditorium, spohs deluged the
verdant newcomers with flour
bombs as they emerged from their
rah-rah session and precipitated
hand-to-hand fighting in' the quad.
The fighting, taking the form of
aporadlc tussles of small groups,
gradually moved over onto the rolling lawns towards the Mall with
the advent of the Arts Building
flrehouse into the melee ln the
hands of ambitious sophs.
For   some    time   tho    fighting

It moved towarda the library and
the pond.
Several abortive attempts to persuade each  other that the  cooling
waters of the pond would be good
for everything in  general whetted
the animal appetites of the  sophs
and frosh to such a red-hot pitch
that  somebody conceived the idea
of really laying hold and then the
waters  were  no more  the  smooth
mirror-like surface of the last few
years.
GLEEFUL   AUDIENCE
From out of the ensemble of fly-
ing arms,  legs and  other intimate
sundries came shoes, a fountain pen
and   other   etceteras,   which   went
splash and slowly descended to the
bottom    amidst    hilarious    laughs
from    the   gleeful   onlookers   who
piled  several  deep at the  edge  of
the hedge  surrounding  the  pool.
Then   the   long   awaited   event
ooeurred.    Flrat two aopha, than
one freahman, and then a oouple
more     aaaorted     breeda     aalled
through  tha  air  to  their  watery
deatlnatlon,  to  the   howla  of  approval   from   the   gallery.
The wind-up of the affair featured
a lone freshman wandering forlornly up and  down  the pool  with his
trousers  rolled  up,  vainly  ducking
for   shoes.     Black   and   brown   appeared and were thrown back again
till the correct pair appeared.
Meanwhile in the quiet of the
Japanese gardens, that same place
of peace and contentment which
ten repressed green ones viewed today, five sophomores leisurely stripped and ducked a lone freshman.
CONSIDERABLE DISCUSSION
CAUSED BY AWARDS SYSTEM
It begins to look as If the new
Awards system, paaaed by Co-eda
in  the  W. A.  A.  meeting  yeaterday, will find a great deal of op-
poaltlon, and  poaalbly mora than
a  little fireworka.
Rumors   are   drifting   around   the
campua at present that the controlling body in that same organization
more  or  less   "railroaded"   the  motion   through.     And,   if   certain   reports   may   be   believed,   secretary
Myrne Nevlson resigned her executive position ln protest of the "al-
mighty-ness" of the governing committee.
While some supporters claim this
system will be a vast improvement
on the old, there ls considerable
dissension In the co-ed ranks at the
time of writing. Many feel that
the tremendous lowering of the Big
Block standard is not balanced by
the Increased number receiving
recognotion of athletic  endeavor. Two

APATHY
Last spring four members of ths present students' council took offlce unopposed, for the flrst time in the history
of our Alma Mater Society. On all sideB the apathy of the
students to their own affairs was passed over without comment—because no one was interested enough to do anything
about lt.
Now, two matters stand forth as an Indication that this
year will be featured by greater apathy than ever. Last
night a fifth member of council was acclaimed in what was
supposed to have been a by-election and the new and ill-
conceived system of womens athletic awards was virtually
railroaded through the W. A. A. meeting.
We have nothing whatsoever against the new president
of Men's Athletics—in fact we are relieved to And a rather
weak council reinforced with his experience and capability,
ln spite of the fact that Men's Athletics is not his best suited
position, but we feel a bit like sneering at a student body
of two thousand which has not enough interest to see an
election for a council position contested.
And on the same day, a new Women's Awards system,
fostered by a comparative newcomer to the campus — a
system which, if put into effect, would destroy a wealth of
tradition, was passed by the W. A. A., even in the face of
strong opposition.
But though the opposition was strong in a sense, it was
not an organized strength, and what now appears to be a
well-organized minority triumphed.
For this again the fault is the apathy of the students.
No one seems to care how our society is operated, or who
does the operating. If some cure is not soon found, we will
begin to wonder why it is operated.
A RADIO SERIES
News that the Alma Mater Society, under the direction
of L.S.E. president Malcolm Brown, is preparing a weekly
radio program, is encouraging. If present plans proceed,
the programs Will present a many-aided picture of student
actvity on the campus.
For a long time, citizens of Vancouver, who will comprise the radio audience of the proposed air features, have
known too little about the university and the doings of the
students therein.
A lot of good can come from publicity, properly doled
out. If the program series are carefully watched, in order
to elimnate any "amateur" material, it will stand as the
major contact between the students on the campus and the
citizens of the city, and of the province.
It is the idea of those in charge of the radio series to
utilize the members of the Players' Club, the Musical Society
and the Parliamentary Forum. In addition, round table discussions and interviews with students engaged in research
work, will be included.
Use of the radio ln this way is an excellent plan. All
that is needed for complete success is careful handling and
co-operation on the part of the groups who w111.be asked to
assist.
ALBERTA'S DOOM
Very noticeable around Vancouver this summer have
been the black on white Alberta license plates. They read,
in case you haven't noticed, plain "ALBERTA" on the top,
the number, whatever lt might be, in the centre, and on the
bottom, in letters the same size as the top, "EXPIRES
MARCH,  1938."
Of course, It Is possible that some nasty-minded underling has played a mean trick on Mr. Aberhart. On the other
hand, It is far more likely that the plate was designed by an
ardent government supporter—politics being what they are
—or even by the premier himself. In classic times there was
a prophet who foretold his own doom. The modern day is,
of course hardly classic.
RUSHING NOTE
In the very near future, it is inevitable that there will be
a number of rushed, but not bid, women students on the
campus. Others who are bid, but do not pledge. And still
others who have not even been approached.
As the university grows larger there is an increasing
group who fall definitely into the type known as "sorority
material." Members of this group would perhaps like to
pledge, but for financial reasons, or because they feel they
cannot afford the time until the next year (when It is usually
too late), they do not. And as the registration figures increase, there is an even larger group who can never be
approached. A sorority Is built primarily on intimate contact. They, therefore, are unable to take in more than a few
of the large number of eligible women who appear on the
campus each year.
But the unbid should not feel that their life has been
irrevocably marred. A sorority membership may be a step
toward a happier and more successful college career. But
it. Is one which has been frequently omitted by very successful students, who realized that it was only one step.

PERSONAL JEWELLERS TO  EVERY  MEMBER OF THE  FAMILY
r>OBERT ENGLAND, retired head
**■ of U. B. C.'s extension department, tok a golden opportunity to
utter a few words of wisdom at
Vancouver Klwauls Club before he
left the campus last summer. He
aald what a good many professors
have longed to say to "downtown"
business men, and, taking his talk
as a whole,  he said it well.
What Interests us, in particular,
ls his statement that "... the creation of habits of Industry and accuracy, and of powers of Integration and analysis . . . are lacking
from the efforts of student journalism at times."
If Mr. England ever thought the
efforts of student journalists would
exhibit powers of analysis, he had
great expectations. If he ever expected a group of students with no
previous experience at the job to
produce masterly expositions and
dissertations on campus affairs, he
was aiming high.
• •      •
\Y/'E too, like to aim high.
"^ We are aiming at the day
when our university authorities will
recognise the amount of hard work
that Is put Into the production of
the Ubyssey, and will reward the
workers tn some suitable manner.
Credit, In the concrete form of
three units for four years' service
on the paper, ls our present aim.
The Ubyssey Is 22 years of age.
Like the university Itself, It ls almost entirely without tradition or
precedent. New situations arise
weekly, they are met, and that action becomes our precedent. We
have no generations of former editors upon whose judgments we may
fall back. Experimentation, in
writing style. In paper make-up, and
In editorial policy, Is still under
way.
Too few of our members are
thinking seriously of a journalistic
career, and therefore we have too
few persons on the staff whose Interest in the paper Is real and deep.
It Is encouraging to note that some
of our "graduates" are more than
making their place ln the world ot
journalism, headed perhaps by Alan
Morley, remembered as the "Campus Crab,' and now known as a
leading writer on a Vancouver
daily.
A fact which hampers us considerably ls that we are continually in
the process of training new workers. We get a "green" group of
writers every fall, and can only develop them to a certain degree, as
we lose an equal number of experienced persons in the spring. Like
the university itself, we have far
too little time with our staff members, can  get  far too  little  done.
However, unlike the university,
we are always able to measure the
standards of our accomplishments.
We Issue a paper twice weekly, and
can keep in touch with the work
being done, can correct and change
our errors as they make themselves
known. The university can only
judge by annual or semi-annual
examinations; then lt is too late
often to repair the mistakes.
* *       *
THE imprints left upon our young
-1 organization by such men as
Morley are showing up. We feel
that we are slowly becoming of
greater service to the campus, that
our leading membera are able properly to apply criticism and suggestions when such la needed. Too
often, criticism and suggestion
comes to us from outside, and ls
far  from  constructive.
In the years to come, the Ubyssey will make great strides. Today,
for the first time In several years,
we feel that we have the right to
lay our case before you, students
and faculty, and to urge that you
consider us In a favorable light.
Remember that our first duty to
the student body Is to give adequate publicity, ln deserving ratio,
to campus organizations, both large
and small. It is a secondary thing
that we analyze the work of these
groups, endeavor to pry Into their
affairs with a critical eye. Ours
ls the task, primarily, to report
their doings, to support their functions and to do our part to keep
them alive and active.
Aa our staff Increases ln Its
knowledge of the task at hand, and
as we draw towards perfection In
the execution of our major duty,
stated above, our scope will widen.
Then, we will be able to take our
real place on the campus; we will
gradually gain the respect and In
consequence the authority that Is

arrived at U. B. C. last week to
continue his studies In Chemistry,

Mount Allison and plans to continue his Interests at U.  B.  C.
""The thing that Impressed me at
U. .B. C. ls the liberal attitude towards freshmen," said MacLean,
"as all students live in residence
at Mount Allison, freshies are made
to do all the flunky work around
the dorms. One year's residence at

Inclusion of Intramurals under

It was stated by various speakers
that under the proposed point system,  the  big blocks  would have no

on until a block was achieved.
"We must try and get the 'star'

Beth Evans, former women's athletic   rep.

REAR GUARD BACK
The bright spot in this gloom to
coach Maury Van Vllet is that his
rear guard of Pringle and Matthison will be out and It ts around
these two men that any hopes for
a championship team must be
formed. Chief aid to these men
on the rear guard this year will
be Bruce Millar, a star of two years
ago, and Lloyd Detwiller who was
the most promising ot last year's
rookies.
NO  FORWARDS
It is in the forward line that the
real trouble lies this year. Frank
Turner Is the only regular who has
returned, so this leaves at least two
positions that rauHt be filled. Alex
Lucas of track fame and a former
member of the senior team, has intimated that he will be out again
this year and his speed and experience would  be of great benefit.
However, lt seems that unless another Willouphby or Bardsley can
be uncovered from under the green
cup of some freshman, all hope of
a repeat In the quest for the Dominion title will be of no avail—for
this  year  at  least.
By J. D. MACFARLANE
Attention, girls! The good ol'
college tradition that snake parades,
wahooing, and general rah-rahing
are the sacred privileges of the
much high-blown invincible mole
have crashed to the dust in most
ignominious shame.
The gals at Moscow, Idaho, who
term themselves "vandal women,"
have decided to stage a snake parade of their own which, If present
expectations materialize, will force
even the most beer-blown senior to
spend a few moments in contemplation of his sacred ancestors.
Aa we have it from latest press
dispatches this female imitation of
Eden's corruption will rah-rah it
from one end ot the Idaho varsity
to the other chanting, "Your pep,
your pep, you've got it now keep it,
dogonit don't lose it, your pep, your
pep."
The fair processional ls expected
to wend its riotous way through all
group houses ending up at a giant
Pep rally in the old MacLean stadium. Pushing in amongst the surplus detail of the story is the gentle
hint that the men will follow. It's
a subtle propagandist idea, but a
good one is a good one. And while
we can't quite reach those grandloae
heighta of imagination which would
allow us to visualise aome of our
fair U.B.C. Eves proceeding to auch
raucous extremea, we think it quite
an idea. Women, how'a about a
wee hit of push 'n stuff. Adam
needed pushing—so do all his descendants.
We watched with amusement the
splashing of sundry frosh and soph
would-be nymphs in the Lily pond
Friday, and later that day proudly
proclaimed same by letter to U's of
Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. At the same time we remembered proudly our father's tale of
the good ol' wholesale frosh-soph
fights after nightfall in the parks
surrounding the University of Toronto. This happened previous to
1914.
Today we search dispairlngly
through other college papers to And
accounts of same, and as yet can't
find them. Outside of the aforesaid
U. of- Toronto, which still throws
rotten eggs, vegetables and sundry
fruits, smashing windows, etc., we
find all quiet on the western front
and most varsities undergrads heading towards co-operation, friendly
talks, and general mutual admiration, with plenty of college pep
sandwiched  into the melee.
While we do not lack any appreciation of a good healthy competition and opposition, we think that
a little bit of that very rare organization and co-operation in the matter would be a wunnerful thing. In
particular we refer to that something known as snake parades . , .
something which may happen any
time, despite threats of the criminal code.
We suggest a substitute. We
asked last year in this column what
had happened to the good old custom of the bonfire. We ask it again.
Passions (following Dr. Sedgewick)
will out, and the boys will have
fun. It just needs an outlet. And
its better to have it on the campus
than downtown.
BACK ON CAMPUS
Prof. H. M. King, head of the
department of animal husbandry, who is back in his office after
successfully managing the affairs of the Canadia Pacific Exhibition.
Prof. King was appointed temporary manager of the big fair
last spring, and was in charge of
the show during its record performance a few weeks ago.
Ubyssey Story On
Music Corrected
The impression was given in Friday's Ubyaaey that music credit
would be confined to holders of the
A.T.C.M. At the request of Professor Dilworth, the Ubyssey begs to
correct this erroneous impression
by quoting the University Calendar:
"Pending the establishment of a
department of Music at the University of British Columbia, six
units of undergraduate credit towards a B.A. degree may be granted for music to a student who holds
at the time of graduation any one
of the following diplomas: A.T.C.M.,
L.Mus., L.R.S.M., L.T.C.L., or an
equivalent diploma or certificate
from other schools of music which
may be accepted by the University
of British Columbia."

by a modern lawyer), but because
of its almost amazing omissions.

numbers of the Calendar, you will
And that before 1982 there were
courses between 2 and 9. Among
them was a course on the modern
drama. With the others we have
no concern, but the omission of the
modern drama course gives rise to
a growing bewilderment.
On the English list is English 10
—the drama to 1642. There it stops
—abruptly. No mention is made
of the witty late Restoration, the
perhaps somewhat dreary nineteenth century, and, more important, no course is available on the
contemporary  stage.
While we have no doubt that Jonson, Dekker, etc., were very exoellent playwrights, their work is
hardly significant today. There is
no more eloquent argument in aupport of this statement than the fact
that they are rarely, if ever, presented.
But, on the other hand, there is
a tremendous volume of significant
drama being written and produced
today. And there is a large body
of students intensely interested in
the modern stage.
These students have no means of
critically studying contemporary
plays. Library books on the subject,
while adequate in some phases, present a bewildering lack of information on many or most of the moderns.
A resurrection of English 5 is
obviously indicated. The low registration in English 10 is a possible
index to a course which could more
profitably be eliminated, if elimination is necessary. It seems probable
that a number of the students in
that course would be more satisfied
with an opportunity to study recent
developments.
But we still wonder what system
the English department uses to
determine which courses would be
the most useful to their students.

that is what it looks like at Idaho

the news from here rather hits the
spot. They have just completed a
new   $110,000   library  wing.
In view of President Kllnck's
remarks at the formal opening of
U.B.C. last week, we think it
worthy of contemplation. We also

soups to nuts.

they can prove their identity with
a sufficient amount of their green

to register in the S.C.M. room at

Nijinsky, according to the report
which appeared
recently in the downtown newspapers, is recovering. Soon, perhaps, he may be able to return to
active life. Of course, he will never
dance again. But the choreoraphic
possibilities of his return can only
be conjectured. It may be taken for
granted, however, that they will be
what Hollywood calls colossal.
Just following this, came the announcement that Massine may leave
the Ballet Russe next year. Are
these announcements connected?
We spent several hours dreaming
pleasantly of a ballet written by
Nijinsky, with Massine as its leading attraction. And according to
a few faint rumours heard in the
show world, it may be possible.

Intramural aporta—an old discussion topic, but an oh-so vital form
of campus athletics. Few realize
its truly great Importance, and as
a result, there are less participants
in, and supporters of these activities than others of minor importance.
The only trouble with the above
generalized statement is that it refers acutely to the U. B. C. campus.
Although many of laat year'a
atudante may rightly flra baok at
tha writer by atating atatiatloa
ahowlng a vaat Ineraaas In ths
number playing intramural gamea,
they atlll won't ba abls to prove
that the proportion of playera to
the total U. B. C. snrolmsnt Is
anywhere near as high as It
should bs.
IF JUST FOR  HEALTH—
Everyone on the campus should,
for their own health's sake, take
part in some form ot athletics. Naturally, Intramural games, and
Maury Van Vliet's physical education classes afford the greatest variety of activity.
One point whieh seems to floor
many atudenta la grabbing enough
time to participate In any kind of
sport. Sclsncemen especially find
It tough eleddlng to equeeie in
the odd minute of athletloa In *n
already orammed timetable.
But green-tops, sophs, Juniors,
seniors, grada and oven ths busy
red-garmented englnosrs are now
able to mix In a dash of plaaaurs
with thslr strenuous aetlvitlss
with ths vsluable hour and half
rspast rssplts.
SPECIAL MURAL COMMITTEE
All the laborious arrangements
are being handled this semester by
a committee composed of sports
director Maury Van Vliet, in an ex-
officio capacity, Paul Trussell as
chief organizer, and members from
each class as athletic reps.
Whenever challenge matches are
in the offing, all that's necessary ls
for the class rep. or the fraternity
rep. (ln case of inter-frat. tussles)
to issue a call to the battlefield
through the governing body.
TEN   TO  START  TOURNEY
Also, any ten members of a class,
frat. or other body, can start a series of matches in a given sport, by
conferring in the usual manner
with this special committee. Tournaments, with ready-made schedules, and an efficient point system,
will be mapped out in this way.
All  points won  by  classes  competing in different lines of activity
go towards the Governor's trophy,
emblematic  of campus athletic supremacy.    And,  with  sufficient  interest   shown   by   the   Greek-letter
clubs, inter-fraternity struggles will
also be recorded on  a point basis.
Hsra'a atlll another angle to thla
Intramural   dlaeuaaion   —  call   It
another plank In the 'Mural platform  If you will.
SUPPLIES STARS
In order to maintain a high standard ot achievements ln teams competing for the University against
outside outfits, 'twill readily be
granted that as the years roll on,
there must be a steady influx of
"ace" performers to replace the inevitable graduates. Right? Right!
•      •      •
Bi*t here's ths ever-preaent
"ointment-fly" . . . whsn the
Frosh rseruits don't fulfill expeo-
tationa, the champs of the year
before beoome Inalgnlfloant
ehumpa.
And that doesn't have to happen.
If all U. B. C. sports fiends turned
out for intramural games, etc., gradually, that form of athletic activity would serve more than its purpose by supplying new stars to replace the old.
ALL  IN   FUN
Provided that you've waded
through this lengthy discourse so
far. by now you've got a new slant
on intramurals. Remember, nobody
really cares two hoots how good or
bad you are, as long as you get a
real bang out of It, and are able to
forget that tough Chem. 3 grind for
a while.

with rioting intermediates to greet

of our girl basketball tennis, at the

FROSH  . . . ALL ATHLETES
Doc's beaming countenance told
its own Btory . . . "this is best lot

Big  Four  Loop
Gets Underway
The Big Four Football League
received its official send-off on Saturday afternoon at Athletic Park
when the favored Meralomas eked
out a 7-7 tie with a fighting bunch
of  North Shore  Lions.
In spite of the interesting show
put up by both teams, the brand
of football displayed was none too
high and the Varsity scouts present should have had little trouble
picking out the weak spots. If the
K. of C. team shows the same lack
of polish in thetr flrst encounter
next Saturday, it would be a safe
bet that the U. B. C. team came
off with a victory to celebrate the
opening  of the  new  Stadium.
Here you see that man of dynamic personality, Maury Wan
Vliet, athletic director of the
University. Maury is head coach
of three major sports, Canadian
football, basketball and track.
As well as handling this assignment, he is arranging an outstanding intramural program for
this  year.
Co-eds Vote For
Awards System
At the annual W. A. A. meeting
held yesterday, Varsity Co-eds approved a new awards system, which
will  go  into  effect  this  season.
Points are awarded for different
lines of sport, Including Intramural,
archery, swimming, badminton and
many other minor activities. Also,
every member of a senior team will
gain the coveted Big Block sweater
ln two years, regardless of games

Lyall  Vine Walks Into
Mm A. A. By Acclamation
By  DORWIN BAIRD
Lyall Vine, last year A.M.S. treasurer, is back on
Students' Council again, this time as men's athletic
representative, and president of the M.A.A.
Vine walked into the office with no opposition.
When nominations closed
at 5 p.m. yesterday, his
was the only name entered.
The new athletic boss
has served his time on the
varsity Canadian football
squad, and plans to play
English rugby this year.
Last year, Vine's work
on council resulted In severe pruning of all society
budgets, bringing a surplus
at the end of the year. He
was noted as the busiest
man on the council, next
to ex-prexy Jay Gould.
Vine will find the going rough in his new job for
a week or so. Retiring incumbent of the office, Syd
Walker, has already set the wheels in motion, and
preparations for several major sport affairs are well
under way.
