Strict Economy Keynote of Deliberations — Social, Athletic
and Financial Plans Outlined
Grappling with a much reduced income, Students' Council
pledged itself to a policy of drastic curtailment and rigid
economy insofar as is humanly possible in a pregnant meeting
Thursday afternoon. Duplication of the social events of the year
has been effected with the object of foretelling unfavorable
criticism from outside the university and careful budgeting and
strict enforcement of the requisition system for controlling
expenditures is emphasized. The full policy follows:
DtscipUn* 4>—
"It is f*lt that owing to th* attitude
of th* Student Body last y*ar, and
also to the tact that no serious
broach of th* Honor System wss
committed, th* asm* policy should
b* continued. Under th* Honor
System upper cla**m*n are expected
to observe the University regulations
and to so* that th* Freshmen learn
and respect th*** rules. Only with
the whol*-h*arted co-operation of
the Student Body, particularly of
th* smior years, can this system be
a success.
"Any Infraction of constitutional
by-laws or Calendar regulation* will
be severely dealt with by th* Discipline Committee. Thi* will include
gambling on the campus, showing any
trace of intoxicating liquors on the
campus or at University functions,
infraction of eliglbUlty rules, scalping of tickets, etc.
"Thi* year, owing to the decrease
in th* student body, with a consequent decrease in th* funds of Um
Alma Mater Society of approximately
12800.00, and owing to th* fact that
w* f**l that any surplus funds which
may be available should be put towards the completion of our stadium
we will pursue a policy of rigid

Dorothy Thompson
Outlines Duties
To Big Sisters
Picturing an ideal "big sister," Dorothy Thompson stressed the duties
impUed in thia relationship when she
addressed seniors in Applied Science
100 on Tuesday noon.
Besides chaperoning her little sister during the first crowded weeks
of the letter's Varsity life, the senior
should hold herself responsible fot
her junior's introduction into the
realms of study. The library, with
Its card Index and rows of weighty
reference books are to be explained
to bewildered freshettes by seniors
who remember their own early difficulties.
Functions for Freshettes
Senior girls will escort their Uttle
sisters to two introductory functions,
as well as to the Informal teas, which
are popular ways of getting acquainted. The supper which is to be held
in the cafeteria on Friday night, and
the senior freshette tea, in the gym
next Wednesday, are functions specially arranged to introduce Freshettes to the campus. In addition to
escorting their "little sisters" to these
events, Seniors are to keep a benevolent eye upon the placarded lassies until the badges of freahette-hood
are removed at the Frosh on October
Beret* for Freshettes
It has been noticed that several
freshettes are neglecting the edict of
berets and odd stockings which the
Initation Committee decreed. The
president of the W. U. S. requested
seniors to check up on their little
sisters on these points, as well as
to register them for at least one activity in the Registration Book which
will be in evidence at the banquet.
"I want especially to stress the attitude of mind which the seniors
take towards their freshettes," Dorothy Thompson said. "It means a
great deal that these girls should be
helped to a good start in their Varsity career, and the big sisters can
do a great deal."
Beethoven's Art
Subject of Talk
By Conductor
"I Ilk* this country v*ry much Because it la so Ilk* my own," said Al-
lard d* Bidder, conductor of th* Vsn-
couvsr Symphony Orchestra, addressing an audionc* of students in ths
Auditorium Wednesday. A native of
Holland, Mr. d* Ridder now make*
his horn* in Los Angola*, wh*r* h* Is
a member of ths Los Attgslss Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra.
H* want on to tell of ths statue of
Bsothovsn which is to b* unv*U*d
shortly in Pershing Square of that
cUy. It ia a testimonial to tho generosity of W. A. Clark, Jr., from
whom comes practically th* whole
means of support of tho orchestra,
which is now in its *l*v*nth **a*on.
The Beethoven Meaner
"B**thov*n ia on* of th* greatest,
because of th* strength of his personality, which stood up against much
difficulty to triumph In his great
works." A Uttle skotch of th* composer's Ufe followed, th* apeaker particularly charming th* audiono* by an
imitation of "th* B*ethoven manner,"
with which th* musician used to
annoy and frighten th* country
people around Vienna, who claimsd ho
"scared th* cows" with his odd gesticulation*.
Th* natural congeniality of Beethoven's nature was thwarted by th*
great tragedy of hi* d*afn**s, which
threw another shadow over hi* already troubled Uf*. Vot he triumphed
over hi* griefs, and wrote "the happiest symphony," the 8th, which is to
be played next Sunday.
This symphony formed Mr. d* Bidder's debut, when "as s boy, I cams
out of the Conservatoire in HoUand."
"It is a hundred and twenty year*
old, and aa fresh a* th* day It wss
written," said tho conductor. "And it
give* mo th* grsstest pleasure to b*
directing it her*."

been more creditable If weeks of preparation had been made for it.
Dr. Carrothers
Makes Address
To Pt. Grey Body
" "Present Day Economic Problem*"
was the subject of a discussion by
Dr. W. A. Carrothers on Monday
evening when he addressed a representative meeting of West Point
Orey citizen* in the United Church
under the auspice* of the church
Discussing the general world situation the speaker pointed out that
while economic conditions had not
altered in any fundamental sense the
fact that they were not even wort*
than at present is a hopeful feature.
During the past few months the
world economic organization has
passed through a severe strain. Thar*
has been no serious break at any
point and circumstances have already
relieved the pressure somewhat.
Although Uttle has been accomplished by the Disarmament Confer-
once the fact that the Conference Is
still In being is encouraging. The
conflicting Interests might well have
led to a complete breakdown of the
conference and the beginning of active preparation for another war.
The Lausanne Conference, while
not disposing entirely of the Reparations question, made such arrangements as prevented a crisis which
otherwise would have arisen, and
advanced the settlement of the world
financial problem another stage.
War Debts still remain and will soon
force themselves again to the front
as a major problem. But the solution of that problem must await on
the political situation in the United
Discussing the depression in relation to the future trend of economic
development Dr. Carrothers pointed
out that one reason for the severity
of the depression, and for the difficulty of bringing about the necessary readjustments is that over a

Canadian Minister To Japan Receives Degree of II D. At
Congregation Held Yesterday
"If Canada is to preserve her national life, she must preserve her foreign relations," declared Hon. Dr. Herbert M.
Marler, Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of
Canada to Japan in an address yesterday afternoon to six hundred of Vancouver's most distinguished citizens in the Auditorium. Dr. Marler's address followed the conferring of an Ll.

Poet Discussed
In Paper
Owing to th* failure of Sidney
Pettit to return to U.B.C. this session, Jean McDiarmid wtil direct the
destinies of the Letter* Club in 1932-
33, It was decided Tuesday night at
the one hundred and thirty-first
meeting of that body, held at the
home of Mrs. F. C. Walker.
Further business of the evening
was settled when the foUowing new
members were elected: Elsbeth Lehman, Jack Ward, Doug Clark, Ron
Howard, Jack Ruttan, associate member, May Moor*.
Dorothy Johnson read a paper on
Coventry Patmore, whose original
phUosophy of love she expanded and
Philosophy of Love
"Patmore did not represent the
early Victorians with their uneasy
morality which considered art and
kindred subjects us necessary evils
which were not discussed In polite
society; but neither did he represent
the minority of rebels who wanted
poetry to be made solely of the stun
of lawless passion and flame. Contrary to general opinion, sex and
nothing but sex is the subject of his
Patmore's early work was done at
the instigation of his father, who
considered him in somewhat the light
of an infant prodigy. Later he himself considered it of no value, and
although it received much private
encouragement from the great men
of the day, it was violently denounced by Blackwood's Magazine
and only mildly praised by other

Faculty Balls
Banned: Senior
Hop Eliminated
Arts, Science and Agriculture Balls
will be eliminated from the social
calendar this season, Council decided
at its regular meeting Monday night.
"This policy Is in keeping with the
sweeping economy measures to be
practiced in all A.M.S. activitie*"
stated Whimster.
In place of the three faculty balls,
two formal University functions, run
under joint auspices of the Man's and
Women's Undergraduate Societies,
will be substituted. Th* "Varsity BaU"
ia to be held November 18, and the
"Alma Mater BaU," February 16.
Further reduction in the social program Includes the consolidation of all
science class parties and the elimination ot the senior baU. A revised
social calendar will be prennted to
the Alma Mater Society at Its semiannual meeting noon, Friday, October
10, for ratification.
This drastic cut In social functions
Is a direct remit of a recommendation
to Council by the Faculty Committee
on student affair*. The committee
felt that in times of depression the
University should not appear so prominently ln the social world. "Such a
recommendation would never have
been made except in caaas of great
urgency and it is up to Council to
bear this ln mind," declared Bill
Whimster, introducing the change.
Other business at the meeting was
concerned with athletic insurance.
The company which was to have issued four doUar policies was found
to be unsuitable, and a new policy
with the Home Insurance Company of
Canada has been drawn up. This on pages 77 and 78 of the Calendar,
policy calls for payment of 85 for each and the regulations in regard to these
athlete  Insured;  the  individual wiUjare set forth on pages 78 to 80; no
other courses are open to first and
speech "The Importance of Foreign
Relations," Hon. Dr. Marler stressed
the great importance of Canada's International outlook. "It is no exaggeration to say that the structure of
our country, the structure ot our
national life, ia dependent upon our
production, and our production is itself dependent on a market.
Foreign Trade Strewed
"We cannot aell our products within the country. Therefore we are
forced toN have economic relations
with other nations, and It is up to
us to creat confidence abroad and to
make our products known," maintained Dr. Marler.
The speaker repeatedly emphasized
the fact that relations with foreign
countries must be studied and that
Canada must remember that her life
as a nation dependa upon her ability
to enter the world-wide competition
for trade.
Canada's Youth Ovcrstreseed
"In my opinion the youth of Canada ha* been overemphasized," continued Dr. Marler. "We have solved
the problem of self government. We
have attained the position of fifth
trading nation of the world. Few
"old" countries can aay a* much, but
we have to realize that to maintain
out proud position we must continue
to trade."
It was for this very purpose that
Canada's foreign services have been
created. It is the duty to watch constantly the country's foreign Interests
and to establish and maintain friendly relations with other nations.
Careful Choice of Ministers
In executing this all-important
function, Canada's representatives
must rely not only upon book knowledge, but upon their character,
which should be free from selfishness, dishonesty and insincerity. Th*
character of the Canadian people is
judged by the character of their envoy*, and the *p*ak*r considered it
a matter of the utmost import that
Canada's ministers should be carefully chosen.
Dr. Marler struck a note of optimism when he upheld Canada a* a
nation in a unique position. "We go
about our buain***, not interfering
with other*, not taking advantage of

When the students meet ln the Auditorium today for the
first Alma Mater meeting of the year there will be three major
decisions that they will have to consider.
The first is eligibility, and as the Ubyssey has already dealt
with that editorially, no further mention of it will be made for
the time being.
The second will be the Totem. Last year the students lost
$2571.41, and only four hundred students took advantage of
the publication. This is obviously too great a drain on the resources of the Society. What it means is that the 2000 students
who paid Alma Mater fees last year, each contributed $1.25
towards a book which only four hundred enjoyed.
The Ubyssey suggests that some definite policy regarding
the Totem is formulated today. If the students of this university
are willing to authorize an expensive annual of the same type
as last year; the Publications Board is willing to publish one.
If, on the other hand, the members of the Society wish to
discard so expensive a 'frill'—well and good. The Publications
Board will not stand in their way.
A third possibility is that a cheaper annual be published.
There are certain costs, however, which cannot be materially
reduced without affecting the quality and appearance of the
book more than in proportion to the actual cost reduction.
Photography and engraving, for instance, total over $2600. The
cover with the Totem in relief cost $500.
A cheaper Totem will be a shoddy one in appearance; quality and price go hand in hand. A further consideration is the
fact that Totem advertising will be distinctly hard to sell, and
that advertising receipts can be expected to fall, with a consequent increase in the net cost to the student body. If the students want a cheaper and shoddier Totem, the Publications
Board will co-operate and produce one.
The Ubyssey would insist, however, that some definite
decision is made today. If there is to be an annual, plans must
be made, a staff must be appointed, and the details of the new
year book worked out. All this takes time, and organization
is essential if the new Totem is to be on sale before the last
final plunge which marks the exit of another graduating class.
The third question which will have to be decided upon
is the elimination-of the Faculty Balls and their replacement by
the Varsity and Alma Mater Balls.
The Ubyssey would like to point out that the original social
program included the Arts, Science, and Agriculture Balls.
When the minutes of Council were submitted to the Faculty
Committee on Student Affairs, that body returned the minutes
with a reservation. It is thus fairly obvious that if the students
take no action concerning this matter, the F.C.S.A. will.
The move was made with the idea of cutting out space
featuring the social activities in the down town press.
Class and Club
Honorary President Klinck wiU
give the first address of the season
under the auspices of tha Vancouver
Institute Saturday evening, October

Prospective members of the Players' Club were given a brief outline
of the test required of all members
at a meeting In Arts 100. President
BUI Cameron and Professor Walker,
honorary president, spoke.
Try-outs will be held before the
advisory board in the auditorium
next Wednesday" afternoon. Lists ot
partners and parte were distributed
at the meeting. Dr. Walker gave a
few suggestions about general deportment and elocution.

Sc. 100 on Tuesday, October 11, at
Mrs. Clarence Darling wUl give
dramatic recitations and Min Ethel
Bassin will sing French folk songs
and play for group singing. AU
members of the three clubs are cordially invited.
The first meeting of the Alma Mater Society will be held
in the Auditorium on Friday noon. Attendance at Alma Mater
meetings is compulsory for all undergraduates, and the usual
procedure is outlined for the benefit of those who are new to
the University. It may also serve as a reminder for those whose
memories at such times seem lamentably short. Students are
asked to show fitting respect for the occasion, and refrain from
throwing lunch papers at distant acquaintances, or leaving
them to litter the Auditorium.
Council does not enter until the student body has assembled, and when it does the meeting comes to its feet, and
stands in silence as Council files down the aisles and takes its
place on the platform. The students then resume their seats,
and proceedings open in the usual manner. Students may not
leave the Auditorium until the end of the meeting, and only
then after the departure of Council, when they are again expected to stand. One o'clock lectures are not considered sufficient excuse for violation of this rule, for if all students remained until the close of the metting, there would be no one
o'clock classes. Such occasions are, however, unusual, and are
only occasioned by business of particular importance.
v. c. u.
On Wednesday, October 12, the
Union is planning a meeting for

others and seeking nothing except in
the most honest manner. Our example and position before other
countries cannot fall to be impressive," the speaker stated.
Warning Issued
In closing, Hon. Dr. Marler declared
peace, toleration, and co-operation, to
be the aim of Canada. He Issued a
note of warning that, so far, there
had been no very great deal of cooperation. He urged that in the
future home governments should realize that no internal affairs are so
pressing as to deserve precedence
over external affairs, because the
former are actually dependent upon
the latter for existence.
The program of the ceremony followed traditional lines of procedure.
The faculty procession, headed by
Chancellor McKechnie and Hon. Dr.
Marler, formed in the library and
proceeded across the campus to the
auditorium, where President L. S.
Klinck Introduced Mr. iuarler to the
Conferring of the degree followed,
and having signed the register of
honorary degrees, Dr. Marler delivered his address.
In the present state of drab depression it is refreshing to
see the Mall blossom out in a galaxy of colourful traffic signs.
For sheer brilliance of design and execution, our recent crop of
cryptic messages should satisfy the aesthetic sense of even the
most discriminating art lover on the campus.

wife, who was the Inspiration of his
life. It is a series of lyrics linked
together by narrative, a romance of
courtship, setting forth his philosophy of love, which he designated
as "the King Cophetua and the Beggar-Maid relationship." Differing
from most writers on the subject,
whether contemporary or not, Patmore considered the adventure of
married life by far the most engrossing in the world, beside which
passion outside the law was tame
and colorless.
Patmore has been criticized as intolerably trivial by some critics. With
this dictum the author of the paper
disagreed. " 'The Angel' as a whole
is not trivial. It is based on Pat-
more's profoundest convictions . . ."
Plato chose the friend to expound
his theory and philosophy of love;
Dante chose the unattainable unmarried woman; but Patmore chose
the wife. "'While the two earlier
theories are alike in their hostility to
marriage, Patmore made married love
the definition of love Itself," the
reader quoted from Burdett on "The
Idea of Coventry Patmore,"
Poignant Odes
The "Odes" are considered to be
the finest work which Coventry Patmore ever did. He sublimated his
ideas of the relationship of man and
woman to the plane of God and the
soul ln his poignant, perfect odes,
"Sponsa Del," "Eros and Psyche,"
"I have written Uttle," says Patmore himself in the preface to a
book of poems pubUshed in 1800,
"but it ia all my best; I have never
spoken when I have nothing to say,
nor spared time or labor to make
my words true. I have respected
posterity; and, should there be a posterity which cares for letters, I dare
to hope that it will respect me."

S. R. K. Glanville, British Museum Expert Describes Antiquarian Work of Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter
King Tutankhamen's solid gold sarcophagus, valued at
eighty thousand dollars, was among the relics depicted in slides
shown by Mr. S. P. K. Glanville in App. Sc. 100 on Wednesday
In an introductory talk preceding the showing of the slides,
Mr. Glanville said that the reign of King Tutankhamen took
place between 1360 and 1350 B.C. He pointed out that the king
was only twelve years of age at his accession to the Egyptian

throne, and that he died when only

marked th* beginning of tho empire

With Injury—Leggatt in Action Again
At 2:45 Monday, Thanksgiving Day, the Varaity Senior
English Rugby squad will take on the Varsity Grids in the
feature attraction at Brockton Point Oval. This game will be
a real test for the Blue land Gold fifteen, for they match their
mettle against such ex-Varsity stars as Bill Locke, Phil Barratt,
Bud Murray, Glen Ledingham, Doug McNeill, Harry Warren
and others.

hold th*lr own against th* attack of
th* heavy Occasional forward*.
As the inability of tn* studanta to

th* last game, Buck Yeo is holding
a special practice today to drlU the
crew in placo kicking.

another first year man, and son of
Dean Clement of the Faculty of Agriculture, wiU be in the line-up
again on Monday. Paul, a forward
and a tireless worker, can be depended upon to b* on the bail at
all times.
Another scrum man wno is showing
better with every practice is "flaxen-
haired" Doug Brown. This is Doug's
first year in the senior division, and
in the opinion of Buck Yeo has a
rosy future in the English game.
Leggatt, who halls from the capital
city, proved his worth as a wing
three-quarter man in last week's
game and should be a tough one to
atop on Thanksgiving Day.
Jim Mitchell, *tar forward of last

English game to strengthen the Varsity scrum line.

Bob Osborne, president of tho Men's

athletic insurance which has come
Into effect thia year. AU persons
who intend to participate in any
strenuous sport affiliated with the
Alma Motor Society must procure
this insurance, which costs five dollars per year. The Society, however,
pays three and the student himself
makes up the remaining two. He
then called on the preaident of the
Basketball Club, who announced the
regular noon practices of the Inter
mediate A and B teams, which are
to start in earnest this week. All
interested freshmen are urged to turn
out for these practices. There will
be a second meeting of the club on
Wednesday noon at Arts 106.
Track and Rugby
The captain of the English Rugby
team next urged all frosh to turn
out for the English Rugby practices
which are held on Wednesday afternoons at three. He reminded new
students that in order to obtain the
best benefit out of the Interclass
track meets which are held in the

practice ia available practically all

Dick Farrington, captain of the
Big Four Rugby team, next urged
first year students, no matter how
inexperienced, to turn out for the
daily practices which are held at
seven-thirty "on our brand-new oval,

there is still time for late turnouts.

Ken Atkinson, president of the
Badminton Club, next set forth the
many merits of his club's chosen
sport. One need spend no more time
at the game than one wishes, as
there is nobody to haul you up for
absence from practices as all such
are purely voluntary. Two nights
and one afternoon a week are available for club use. There are several teams entered in the Vancouver

Keen Competition Is Exited—Freshmen Strong in the Jumps
and Sprints—Haddon Agnew To Defend His Discus Record
Freshmen tracksters will have a chance to show their wares
on the 12th of this month, when the annual Varsity-Frosh track
meet will be staged on the Varsity oval at 3:10 p.m. Judging
from Saturday's meet, competition promises to be exceptionally
keen between Upper-classmen and the lowly Frosh.
Although the meet is an annual affair, it will also be in
the nature of an elimination contest, for the purpose of choosing
a powerful team to represent the University in the big inter-
club meet scheduled for the 15th.
Many prominent Vancouver stars wUl
be running and jumping against Varsity, such men as Marshall Llmon,
Magee quarter-mile flash, Stan. Barrett and Howard McPhee, aprint
aces and Don McKenzie, who, aa a
Junior mller, has never been defeated.
Frosh Repreeentative*
Track and field men upholding the
Freshman class are strong in the
jumps. In Heron and Little, both
of whom cleared 19 feet in* last Saturday's meet, Varsity will have a
tough brace of men to beat. George
Francis will have to be reckoned
with in the sprints, as will Barber,
who is equally as good In the furlong as in the 440.
Many other men have been training quietly, and from this "unknown
quantity," come the upsets which so
gladden the spectator's heart. Entries must either be made on the
field, or to Max Stewart some time
before Wednesday, 3 p.m.
440 a Thriller
Varsity is conceded a good chance
of a one-two-three in the quarter-
mile dash, in which a great duel is
expected between Bob Osborne, Pi
Campbell, Ken Wright, all speedy
Basketball stars, as well as Max
Stewart and Bill Crothall.
In the sprints, Bill Stott and Max
Stewart should make it hot for the
Freshmen. Stott, if he once approaches last season's form, will never
be headed. Fordyce is a good bet
for the punishing half-mile run, but
the Freshmen are likewise respected
at thia distance
The mile run will produce Alfie
Allen and Herb. Barclay, the two
who battled it out so closely last
Saturday. Another good race is expected, as both are setting their caps
to take young Don McKenzie into
camp next Saturday. In the 3-mile
run, George AUen will fight the decision out with Sinclair, a great
Weight Star
The discus event and the shot-put
are practically given to Haddon Agnew, unless some husky Frosh takes
It into his head to upset the dope.
Agnew, taking his third year here,
holds the Varsity record for the Discus, and can send the platter spinning 120 feet practically whenever
he pleases.
Harold Wright Here
Harold Wright, who fought his way
to the semi-finals of the 100- and 200-
metres at the Olympic Games this
summer, will display his speed at the
Invitation Track Meet to be held on
Saturday, October 15. He will take
part in both the 100 and 200 yard
events. Wright, a graduate of Utah
University, may take up his studies in
Geology here mis fall. He will be an
official at the Frosh Track Meet, Wednesday, October 12.
Harry Warren, Rhode Scholar and
assistant in the Department of Geology, has accepted the invitation of
the Track Club to coach the team
twice a week, on Mondays and Fridays.
Vrooman and Dick
Are Grid Officers
Bill Vrooman was elected secretary
and Archie Dick business manager
at a meeting held by the Canadian
Rugby Club Tuesday noon.
Dick Farrington urged that the
pep club organize the students into
a cheering section and give the rah-
rah boys a little encouragement in
the next few games. He said It was
the first game he has ever played for
Varsity, that there has not been a
cheering section.
Anyone who desires to save some
money buy a Big Four season ticket
from Al Pine and save the neat sum
of three dollars. The meeting came
to a close with the preaident making
a plea for more freshmen to turn
out for the interscholastic team.
And if their slant* and end runs can
get no further against thc student
Un* than did the New Westminster
play*, it'* going to be anybody's ball
For the last week th* CoUegian*

strengthening th* w*ak spot* that

safety men on the Jump for moat of

backfield, whUe McCrimmon, Don
Stewart, Jim Stewart, Mark Collin*,
Dick Farrington, Dick Moore, Harry
Pearson, Russ Keillor, Bill Wilson,

orchestra providing the music. Coeds will, as usual, be admitted to the
contest free and student tickets for
the men are selling at bargain
Gridders Lose
Varsity Interscholastic Gridders received a 16-2 setback in a loosely
played game against Vancouver College Wednesday afternoon. The
U. B. C. boys lacked nothing in spirit
but were sadly deficient ln practice,
whereas Vancouver College had advantage in both weight and condition.
On the first University play, the
pigskin was snatched from Holden,
and Vancouver went through for a
touchdown which was converted.
With six points to their credit, Varsity's opponents buckled down to
work and raked up another five
points when Wright went round the
right end. No convert was made.
Play ranged to and fro some time
before Vancouver finally scored its
final touchdown, leaving the score
at 16-0 against Varsity.
The Blue and Gold squad tightened
up in the final. Poole and Moffatt
each scored a point by kicks to deadline.   The game closed at 16-2.
Col. V. A. Katchorovsky, whose address is 625 Hornby Street, announces
