class members the popular census of opinion appears to be "no
"I think that gowns will eventually^'
make their appeorance on the campus; but judging by this year's wholehearted response, I think it will take
some years in thc doing" said Arthur
Mayse, on beinj asked his opinion
of the diopping cf the gown subject.
"1 like gowns because they are aristocratic,"  saij  Alan  Morley,
"No gowns, no, no. a thousand times
no," sez Nancy Miles.
"Gowns have juways been considered an essential part of university
tradition and 1 am confident that
they will find a place eventually in
the traditions of our own University.
At least the Question has been wr-
iously considered, which fact is in itself a great step towards the ultimate
adoption of tha r-own as senior academic dross." These were the views of
Harold Johnson on this vital problem.
With reference tc the senior class's
refusal to wear powns that a vast majority had vot-jil ior Margaret Powlett
waxed eloquent and said of th'.'ir action. "It's backbir.elessness!"
Continuous Change
Bergsons Philosophy
Find Philosophers
On Tuesday night the Philosophy
Club examined the mysteries and intricacies of the Philosophy of Bergson, on which subject Miss Beulah
Jame, read a most interesting paper.
Bergson's philosophy is that of the
new generation and is linked closely
with modern discoveries in science
and especially in the field of biology.
Indeed, "Bergson will rank with the
great philosophers who have enriched
mankind with a new concept and
made possible philosophical advance."
His great work is "Creative Evolution."
Continuous change, or rather duration, is the foundation of Bergson's
philosophy. In fact, the gist of his
teaching can be found in the celebrated Heraclitan dectrine, "Reality is
flux, change. All things flow, and one
cannot step twice into the same river."
Personality Growing
Our very character is the condensation of the history we have lived from
our birth. Our per.-onality, which is
being built each instant with its accumulated experience, changes without ceasing. For a conscious being to
exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating
Bergson's philosophy represents the
organized world a.s a whole. But this
harmony exis'j more in principle
than in fact—animals and plants correspond to two divergent tendencies
in life, marked by consciousness and
unconsciously-;;, and th'.1 whole evolution of the anin U kingdom has tak-
en two divergent lines: one leading
to instinct, and the other to intelligence.
The   speaker   emphasized   the   fact
S.C.M. Secretary
Speaks Sunday
"Prepare yourself for social action",
advised Rev. Beverly Oaten in an
address delivevd Sunday to members of the Cosmopolitan Club. "As
students of a university you must
become actively interested in affairs
of today; you must gain a complete
knowledge of this economic crisis
and so assist in the changes which
must take place in our social system.
Mr. Oaten stated that clubs similar
to the Cosmopolitan are pursuing
very worthy objectives but added
that in order to become valuable to
their members and to their surroundings it is necessary that they foster
an interest in the economic destiny
of all countries.
American students, according to
the speaker, are much more advanced in this line of thinking than
are Canadians. They not only take a
much keener interest in economics
both in and out of the classroom, but
are also taking on active part in certain types of social reform. They
have shown a great deal of sympathy
for strikers snd have even assisted
them, arid in so doing have gained
a new and ratner bitter understanding of modern i oliticnl^methods. Students of American Universities are
organizing Upion Sinclair'." campaign.
They write article; and interview celebrities on his behalf.
In closing Mr. Oaten urged his listeners tc put ij-ide indifference -md
to be ready to assist in changing our
economic system which, at the present
moment, is already crumbling into
dust. «
Early Church Music
Subject S.C.M. Talk
Early Christian Church music was
the subject of mi address delivered
before the S.C M. by Mr, Burton
Kurth on Thurfc.ay nojn.
"During the first three hundred
years of the Christian era, musr
was spontaneous. Pliny says that
Christians sang oti the mountain slopes
at sunrise. It was used to express
the sentiments and moods of the believers."
In tho following three hundred
years, church rrusic was distinguished
by its complexity and formality —
Gregorian music appeared and schools
for priests sprang up.
The Protestant world created a new
body of sacred music, and in modern
times this has been assimilated with
a revival of thc older forms affecting
the whole art of composition.
Mrs. Kurth sang three of the old
plain songs by way of illustrating the
older types of church music.

F. H. Soward Says
World Crisis Due
Largely To War
Saar, Danube, Far East, Disarmament
Discussed In Institute Lecture
"We are facing a crisis today which
shakes the world to its foundations.
We look forth en the world with
mingled hope and despair—hope for
what mr.n could do and despair at
what man is doing." Thus spoke
Professor F. H. Soward before th.
Vancouver Institute on Saturday evening. During the course of hi.; !\-c-
ture on "Thc Outlook in Internationa)
Affairs.'' Profess,] Soward discussed
the effects of the World War on the
modern world, the economic conditions contributin ; to the present situation and fiii;.il\ ; nalysc I the problems and attitud'.'s of individual coin-
tries and their relationships to thc
world crisis.
"In a survey cf world affairs today,
we must consider the effects of the
Great War," fiated Professor Soward
in opening his address. Out of the
war rose Soviet Russia. As a result
of the war the East no longer looks
to the West for guidance and is prepared lo act in defiance of it. From
the war has Keen left the idea of
force and violence as a mvans of accomplishing de>ires and this heritage
has manifested itself in the murder
of two kings, two presidents, three
premiers and three cabinet ministers
in the last few years. As a visible
result of the w.>r is the much divided
map of modern Europe while the
present depression which has exercised a great ii.flu'ence on international affairs lias many of its roots
in the hectic years of 1914-18.
"Just five yeee's ago tonight brokers
were watching tht boards with alarm
as the bottom fell out of the New
York Stock Market," said the speaker in discussin; the depression. He
went on to state that the depression
period may be divided into three
phases. The first period was characterized by an optimistic hoping that
the depression was purely cyclical
unci would not last. It was begun by
the stock market crash and ended
with Britain's leaving the Gold Standard. The seeond phase was marked
by the spasmodic attempts of groups
individually *o end the depression in
such   moves  as   the   Ottawa   Confer-
Oxford Group
Discussed By
"Although I had repeated the general confession one thousand times I
never really felt the personal and
ethical challenge of Christ until I became a member of the Oxford Group"
stated Dean C. S. Quainton, as he
spoke to a «;roup of students about
the "livest thing in Christendom."
Phrased in modern and colloquial
language and colored by the sense of
humor for which the speaker is famous, the challenge of the Oxford
Group was forcefully brought home
to the audience.
A Revival of Revivals
Dean Quainton explained that the
Oxford Movement shared the characteristics of similar revivals since it is
not liked by orthodox people. "It is
a converting Jiid integrating force. It
originated in the heart and brain of
one man, Dr. Buchman.
I think that Dr Buchman is one of
the greatest men of our times. It was
i hard pill for a died-in-the-wool
Anglican like myself to swallow to
discover that the originator of this
great movement ic a Lutheran minister, of German origin, who was
brought up in the United States."
Oxford and Cambridge
According to the speaker the first
house party waj held at Cambridge
not Oxford. "I get tired of hearing
so much about Oxford," said tbe Dean
in a jocular tone. "Oxford produces
movements but Cambridge produces
men," and added as an afterthought,
"I come from Cambridge, you know,"
"The movement can best be defined
as Applied Christianity. It mffkes
bad people good anci good people
nice, and, believe me. the second is
the harder task. It is a movement,
not an organization with rules, it is
an organism, it lives."
Dean   Quainton    went    to   England
with   the   intention   of   investigating
the  group  but   found   instead  that   it

countries of the Gold Standard. The
final phase remains wi'h us. Recovery depend* basically on two
things, the .estoration of a normal
volume of tru'e and the restoration
of confidence.
"The chief problems on whose safe
solution dop'encis the return of confidence arc those of the Saar, the
Danube, the Far East and disarmament," continued thc lecturer. Since
the war the Sw region inhabited by
800.000 persons, about 98 percent German has been governed by a League
of Nations Commission. On Jan. 13,
of next year they will vote on whether they wish to return to Germany,

present status. Hitler with his avowed
policy of gathering all Germans into
one state is do.'.ng all in his power to
recover this territory. France on the
other ht.nd, alarmed by the increased
amount spent on German armaments
and not reassured by Hitler's statement that Germany will fight only in
self-defence desires to prevent the
valuable Saar coal fields from reverting to Germany. Here is a cruical
situation which challenges peaceful
In the Danube situation is included
the problems o*: the Balkans, Austria
and Central Europe. The Balkan

Students To Hear Business Men
In Series Of Vocational Talks
Jobs for Artsmen are looming in the near future, and the
Alumni Committee on Vocational Talks is busy with another
series of talks bringing first-hand information on important
fields of the bread-winner.
The lectures will be delivered on Wednesday noon hours
by outstanding business and professional men. The first speaker
will be Major Harold Brown, manager of the Union Steamship Co., who will address a meeting to be held in Arts 100 at
J2:15 tomorrow. Dean Buchanan will preside as chairman of
the meeting.

Wizard of Oz
Visits U.B.C.
The Wizard o/' Oz—a marionette operetta, featuring the Seattle Cornish
Puppeteers—wlil be presented by the
Players' Club in the University Theatre on Nov. 2. Two performances
will be given: the m.il'noe at 2:30,
and the evening show at 8:30.
The puppet company have worked
together for foui* years to co-ordinate
their performance. The manipulators
of the little, make-believe peopl-e are
under the direction of Ellen Van Vol-
kenbttrg, one of the leading exponents of this theatrical art,
Although originally designed as a
children's show, the Wizard of Oz
soon attracted adult spectators. The
fascination of little Dorothy's adventures in the mysterious land of Oz
holds the attention of young and old
alike—particularly so, when those adventures are portrayed by a medium
so effective that the spectator apparently sees the story-book illustrations
come to life.
Presented in twelve colorful scenes,
with fourteen specially composed
songs, thc Wizard of Oz takes on the
proportions of a stage extravaganza
in miniature. The University stage
will be masked down to about twelve
twelve by fourteen feet, in which, on
a suitably constructed stage, the puppets will present  their operetta.
A special compact switch-board will
control the elaborate array of tiny
footlights, bordcrlights. and others.
Overhead, from platforms, the nine
operators will manipulate the hundreds of fine threads which keep the
marionettes ia motion. The amusing
antics of the Scarecrow, the Tin
Woodman, the Cowardly Lion, and all
the other famous characters will be
governed by tne hands of the players
above  thc stage.
Tickets for both performances of
thc W::ard of ()• will be on sale for
students at a | 'ice of 45c, on Thursday and Friday at the Quad Box office. Outsider-;' tickets are 50c for
either performance; while school
tickets are 25e. The lattc- tickets are
in the hands of the members of the
Players' Club now, and may he obtained (torn them, or at the door.
>        Preparing For the Future
The object of these lectures will be
to assist students in choosing the vocation they wish to follow in the
years after graduation, and also to
inform them of the conditions in different occupations, the obstacles to
be encountered, and the best methods
of preparing for them.
During the !a3t session many distinguished business and professional
men gave lectures at the University,
including: Mr. Sherwood Lett, on
law; Heilly O. Arkley, on insurance;
Bob Bouchette, on journalism; Paul
N. Whitley, on teaching; and A. E.
Jukes, on stock broking.
Advice—Not Positions
Unfortunately, the Alumni Committee b. not yet able to offer Arts-
men definite positions — they state;
"Some day we hope to do better than
this but at least we are taking a step
in the right direction." But all who
attend the meetings will be assured
of lectures both interesting and educational.
Incidentally all speakers are busy
men and they are surrendering valuable time in order to attend the University and deliver their talks. In
addition, it is distinctly in the students' interest to support an idea that
has so important a bearing on their
future life.
Quoting the committee: "Your attendance is our only barometer, and
we simply cannot invite these men
to speak to a handful of students"—

Co-eds Planning
Stag Functions
It occurred to somebody that the
time hai come when co-eds might
finance a little of their own entertainment. "Stag" affairs at U.B.C.
are not as general or as well patronized as similar functions in the United States, thoj^h many people feel
that they wou!d be successful once
the custom had been established. In
line with this idea the W.U.S. is to
hold its third annual tea-dance on
Saturday of Homecoming week-end.
Kappa Alpha Theta is also planning
a tea-dance after the Alberta game on
Monday. No man may buy more than
one ticket to c.thet of these functions.
W.U.S. prices have not yet been quoted, but member, of the aforementioned fraternity have been persuaded to admit that they are willing to
sell tickets for a small consideration
(thirty-five cents).

ARTS '37
At the meeting of Arts '37 on Friday, Beth Evans tendered her resignation from the position of athletic
representative  and   Betty  White  was
elected in her pi-ice.
By Nancy Miles
The first of a series of vocational guidance
talks is to be given tomorrow noon. This series
is being given as a result, principally, of the
efforts of Mr. Thomas Berto, an alumnus of
the University, who realizes the problem which
each student is compelled to face upon his
graduation, and is willing to devote his efforts
towards helping to solve this problem. A similar series was given last year.
In view of the generosity which Mr. Berto,
and the men who have consented to give some
of their valuable time to addressing the students have shown, it is to be hoped that the
students will show their appreciation of the efforts! which are being made on their behalf by
attending these noon-hour talks. By so doing
they will be better able to make an intelligent
choice of a life career, for the men who will
speak are men who have made a success of
their respective vocations.
We constantly hear complaints about the
unfavorable publicity which the University
receives through misleading reports in the local
press. The fact is deplored that the lighter
side of our college life featuring freshmen,
sophomore fights and various social affairs is
unduly emphasized, while the serious work
which the majority of students are pursuing,
and which holds by far the most important
place in their activities, is very seldom men
This type of publicity is indeed unfortunate inasmuch as it fosters an erroneous concep
tion in the minds of the public of the actual value of this University. But at the same time it
is difficult to secure the proper amount of
publicity for the academic side of student life,
because there is ordinarily nothing unusual
or sensational about it, and the newspapers are
interested only in stories which they think will
startle or at least personally interest the average reader. Their conception of public service does not always rise to the level of endeavouring to present an absolutely true picture of everything at all costs; they prefer often
to give their readers a thrill rather than a story
that is merely the whole truth,
The students themselves, however, can help
to remove the misconception in the mind of
the taxpayer by emphasizing the scholastic
work which they must accomplish each year
in order to obtain their final degree. With the
student as with the newspapers the tendency
is to talk about the social events and other
frivolities rather than the every-day academic
work. If at the same time, however, he gave
due emphasis to the fact that he had to spend
most of his time studying, and spoke of the
intangible benefit which he had received from
his numerous personal contacts with professors
and students, he would help his hearers to realize that the University is well worth the
money which is spent for its maintenance.
Criticisms from outsiders about the "all
play no work" attitude of the students aren't
going over the way they once did. It isn't very
gratifying to spend an industrious afternoon
snowed under with essay papers and hear
scornful terms about our ambition bandied
about between our clear relations and their
friends. Increasing crowds in the library the
last few years seem to indicate that we're taking things a little more seriously. Of course
there are people who don't go to the library
to work and there are caf-loungers who can't
bo bothered making even a pretence about it,
but on the whole the proportion of the studious
is in the ascendant. The trend is to take recre-
"You can fool some of the people all of the
time and all of the people some of the time,
but you can't fool all of the people all of the
time." This quotation has variously been
ascribed to Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln and
Arthur Brisbane, but it really came from P.
T. Barnum, probably, no doubt, the translation of inane mutterings picked up by his
wideawake press agent, Mr. Dexter Fellows.
It's amazing the number of people which
can be fooled at one time, however. Just to
warn you, here is a gag which is going the
rounds, so don't get caught. A clipping bureau sends a gentleman, hypothetically Mr.
Smith, an official looking document, which
says that for twenty-five cents they will send
him an interesting item about himself which
they have clipped from a prominent paper. Mr.
Smith, feeling very happy indeed that his talents have finally come to public light, mails
the twenty-five cents. Comes back an item
out of his home paper, reporting his name in a
long list, who attended a local banquet. And
does Mr. Smith feel silly!
We can't resist following up this story with
two other hoaxes which have been in this very
column during the past year, in the hope that
you didn't read it then, or perhaps it may
amuse the Frosh.
Mr. Smith, the hypothetical Mr. Smith's
young brother, Guiliemus by name, noted an
advertisement in the personal column of the
want ads, which said by writing to a certain
address, and enclosing a few cents, a secret
would be revealed and the facilities for the extermination of bed bugs would be mailed. Mr.
Smith didn't have that kind of trouble, but he
was of an equiring turn of mind, and mailed
the required few cents. Came back a small parcel, which he opened with mounting excitement. Inside were two small cubes of smooth
wood, and a paper. On the paper it said, "Put
the bug on any face of one of the blocks, and
with any face of the other block, press."
And last but not least comes the horse
hoax. A gentleman employed by an express
company, this is honestly true, hence the minute detail, had some trouble with his express
wagon horse, it wasn't a mannerly horse, and
its table manners were, well, distinctly unrefined. It's particularly bad habit was to slobber ito its oats, which made them very messy
indeed, and annoyed the express man, who was
also valet to the horse.
By some remarkable co-incidence he noticed a short advertisement in the back of a
pulp magazine, which seemed to put its finger
directly on his personal grievance.
"Does your horse," it said with admirable
brevity and terseness, "Slobber into his oats?
If so. communciate with us, and for a half
dollar, we will reveal to you how to prevent
him from doing so."
With exultation the express man wrote a
letter, enclosed a postal note for fifty cents,
and awaited tremulously the answer.
A fortnight later his efforts and patience
were rewarded with a thin letter, which he carried home. He prolonged the exciting moment
of revelation, just for the pleasurable sensations. At last he could wait no longer and he
opened it. With the same remarkable terseness there were five words which said everything that could be said about the matter,
"Teach your horse to spit."
Many years ago a gentleman called Mr.
Harley Proctor went to church. Little did he
think that Sunday that the destinies of the
American complexion were going to be influenced by that.
That day Psalm 45:8 was read during the
service. It goes: "All their garments smell of
myrrh and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory
palaces, whereby they have made thee glad."
Mr. Proctor had recently gone into the soap
business. He hadn't chosen a name for his
soap yet and from the text he chose it. Guess
what it was.
We do notwish to give the company free
advertising,  but  here  are  some  hints.    Mr.
Proctor is the Proctor of Proctor and G	
The soap is very pure indeed, so pure that
movie actresses, for a consideration, will declare it indispensable. In fact, like its advertising, it is 99.44'd  pure.

who come to Varsity simply for a good time,

took the form of a short address by
Dr. Tipping. She gave a sketch of art
from very early times to the middle
of the 18th jentu'y. Of special interest were the many beautifully colored reproductions of well known
paintings. Dr. Tipping traced art from
the early Egptian Mummys through
Greek and Roman art to the time
when Christianity began to influence
painters. The discovery of oil painting on canvas by the Van Evck

Editor, "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
I'm attending the University of
Toronto as an exchange student from
B.C. for the session 1934-35. Although
the University here is undoubtedly a
good one, I mits U.B.C. Therefore I
would be pleased to receive the Ubyssey in order to keep up in a small
degree with events at home . . .
I arrived here rather late and up
to the present I have not had much
time to examine student activities.
However, they have here a handbook
for new students that is incomparable. Their paper, "The Varsity," although published five times weekly,
lacks tht per.sor.al charm and touch
of our "Ubyssey." The atmosphere
about the University is more restrained than what we find at U.B.C.
The students act much more conservatively. Of course, this may be
due to the fact that the average student is older than the average student at U.B.C. Older not because
they are less intelligent (how could
they be?) but because a greater proportion of the students attend graduate schools. The outstanding feature of the University, to me, is the
recreation eenUe for men, Hart House.
Mix up the "caf", the gym, a common room or two, the auditorium, a
swimming pool md you've nearly got
Hart House. Yep, not a bad place.
But alas 1 have no "Dr. Sedgewick"
—yet. As Dr. Sedgewick has probably said, himself, since returning
from here .the girls here outnumber
(naturally), outdance, out-faint the
girls at home. The significance of
which 1 leave to you.
No, this commentary is not going
on any further. Do I hear a sigh of
relief? Perchance you would like me
to give my further impressions of the
University of Toronto from time to
time. If so let me know. Presumably,
I'm pretty safe in making this offer
slnec you havo had one example of
my "work."
In any case, I'm looking forward
to seeing the "Ubyssey" real ,soon.

anything you would like done while

The Four Absolutes
The keynote of the movement are
the four Absolutes, Honesty, Purity,
Love and Unselfishness. "I don't deserve the hangman's noose except for
murder committed in thought," he
confessed. Th-1 speaker gave an example of what is meant by Absolute
Honesty. When he returned from
England the Dean discovered that like
other parsons he was a bad business
man but good book-keeper. He had
27 volumes in his library that did not
j belong there. "Small things are just
i as important as lnrge things," he concluded. 'Great c'.oors swing on little
I In discussing his personal reactions
to the n'ovement Dean Quainton admitted that only after he became a
member was he able to conquer pride.
"It has given me power, peace of
mind; it has made Jesus Christ a
living reality."
The Five Requisites
There are five requisites which
must be accepted by members. The
first is a surrender of heart and life
to God. "You must put all your
cards on Christ's table. This 50-50
business doesn't work." Ninety percent, of our troubles are connected
either with sex. money or relations
with our felloe man.
The second lequisite Is sharing
with others or confession: "Silence
is sometimes a crime." Periods of
quietness are also essential to a
"Grouper." These consist of Prayer,
Meditation a.id Guidance. "Think
your day through," the speaker advised.
One of the most important of the
duties of a member Is to be a "Life-
changer." After ouoting examples of
men whose lives had been miraculously changed in this manner Dean
Quainton concluded his talk by predicting that "As political democracy
has failed so will economic democracy
uness more lives are changed."

Editor. "Ubyssev,"
Dear Sir:
In response to the invitation extended by you in the editorial in
Tuesday's Issue, "... to read the
Ubyssey intelligently, to criticize it
intelligently . 4 ".I hereby submit a
"reasonable" and I hope "constructive" criticism of an article appearing
in the same issue. This criticism concerns the repoit of a meeting of the
Cosmopolitan Club, headed 'Germany
Weak Says Topping!" It is not the
subject matter of Dr. Topping's lecture that I wish to comment upon,
but the manner in which the article
Is written. I do not know whether
a Ubyssey reporter or a member of
the Cosmopolitan Club is responsible
for the article. In either case it
seems to me that an effort should be
made by a senior reporter or editor
to correct such contributions before
they are printed. I understand that
a certain type of language and licence
of expression may be made use of
in journalistic wiiting, but surely the
elementary rules of punctuation and
sentence construction still hold. If
the members of the Ubyssey staff are
too busy to ve-write or discard such
an article, may I suggest that in future similar reports be signed by thc
authors, so that wc may be assured
that none of the staff is at fault.
Truly yours,
Editor's Note—The article in question was not p.epared by a member
of the Ubyssey .staff.

1. MURRAY (Motherly) MATHER:
is THE big shot of this decrepit collection. He expects to have an exceptionally hisn bating average.—
about .00000023, which, you'll agree
is high for a Council member. He
wishes the gate to be donated to a
fund for the care and betterment of
Murray Mather.
2. WALTER iWhataman) KENNEDY: Popularly known as the Sci-
enceman's ideal, or alternatively, as
the Woman's Home Companion. He
will start at drawback, but may be
shifted tc the s;rum when the Pvb's
superiority becomes apparent.
3. JOHN (Silly) SUMNER. Another
Scienceman. This shows to what appalling depths the Council has fallen.
Since he is a Mining Engineer, he
will be searched for pickaxes, sledgehammers, etc. tefore the game starts.
4. JAMES fMoney) MALKIN: Tho
cruel, ctuel (■•'eelure who has been
slashing budgets. It is rumored that
he will attempt to abscond with the
gate receipts. His playing will be a
great help to the Pubsters,
5. CAM (Gory) GORRIE: Although
he is an Artsman. his Council membership completely wipes out this evidence of true mi.nhood. He has been

The Pome-Tree
In days of old
When council bold
To pubmen gave abeating,
The pubsters vowed
If 't was allowed
That victory would be fleeting.
From that tims hence
It is immense
The way the council take it,
How trite the .story
"Pub Wins Glory",
Thus repetition makes it.
While Mather lolled
Our Gorrie bold
Devised a perfect scheme.
Most dev'lish plan
Devised by man
To beat a pubbish team.
Behind big books
With dirty looks
The council men did plot.
"If we are caught
As must we not
'T will be a filthy blot .
The   great   day   dawned
And Gorrie yawned
To see the new cay break.
Then thoughts of woe
Of HELL below
His mind began tc shape.
At twelve-fifteen
Stcod either team.
At once the whistle blew.
The council stood
As blocks of wood—
The ball to pubmen flew.
The whistle shrilled
The women thrilled
To see their heroes hie,
But hark and hist
Chang Suey missed!
With him 'twas do or die.
Chang Suey shot
Right on the dot
When half the time was o'er
The ball went plunk
The basket sur\k
Made 30-0 the score.
A basket scored,
The council Hoorea
Said it is time to act.
The pub will win
'Twill  be a i.tn—
To hesitate is crocked.
Then from the side
Trying to hide
A hammer an.l v. nail.
Came Kennedy
To  give  Gorrie
That hammer and that nail.
He crept among
The  busy   throng
And  from  Ch ie;  Suey's  hack
He tried to nail
The lad's pigtad
To the floor-;. deed so blade
That Campus Creb
Abstained from gab
And with a cry of war,
He stretched his claws '
Opened his maw
And rushed acrc.v, the floor.
And Gorrie plucky
Thought  he   was  lucky
To  get   away  alive.
And Sumner brave,
That Malkin knave
In spirit 'gan lo writhe.
The game is lost
At  any  cost
We  cannot  light  or battle!
But some clay wc
A victory
Will win — thus they did prattle.
But pubsters know
That never so
Will council win a game.
'Tis not with f uile
Oi  fearsome wile
They make their bid for fame.
Description Of The Sporting Epic Pu& Line-Up or
Council's Waterloo
Play By Play
First Half — Pub opened strongly
with a well placed kick-off, but
Councilman Kennedy fielded and
stopped the run at second. A magnificent tackle by Idyll held the
Council for a three yard loss in the
next play but they recovered and
made a long drive right onto the
Pubsters staged a line plunge, in
which Mather had his neck broken,
fortunately for all concerned. During
the rest of tho half, Pubmen landed
shot after shot, sending the puck
whizzing past the Council's mediocre
defense. About this time .after a general mixup, Mf.lkin was discovered
dead on the thirty yard line, evidently having coming in too close contact
with someone's boot. The score for
the first half was 89-0 for the Pub.
according to one scorer, and 72-7 for
the Council, according to their scorer.
Shortly after their scorer had announced this r.npalling fraud, he was
discovered in the locker room, choked
to death.
Second Half-The Council began to
cheat in this half, carrying the ball
in specially made pockets, but the
Pubsters kept on scoring.
Soon after the half opened, there
was a rush on the part of the council,
but the Pub line held. Walter Kennedy mysteriously collapsed and an
investigation revealed that he had
been stabbed. He died shortly after.
Gorrie and Sumner, tho remaining
two, played on, trying to pit their
puny strength against the pubmen.
They soon sartrd vilifying the sacred
Ubyssey, using foul expressions to
characterize its staff.
Soon after this. Sumner was seen
to perform curious contortions, and
to gradually turn a deep blue. After
he had expired, an autopsy revealed
that he had been poisoned. Someon
had stuck a hypodermic needle inti
his arm.
Finally, in a last shuffle, a sharp
sound fell on the ears of the spectators. Gorrie fell, with a "gorrie"
wound in his head. He had been
shot. From this juncture till the end
of the half, tho Pubmen scored at
will, and at full time the score stood
at 3410-0 in the Pub's favor. Since
the council had all by now mysteriously died, the Pub decided to take
over their dulie.i, to everyone's great
satisfaction.    The  Pub's  clean  play-

ing formed an effective contrast with
that of the Council, some of whom
deliberately tried to put Thothmen
out of the game.
In case of the team defaulting there
will be a substitute squad composed
of ladies. They will be Connie Bairl,

Darrel Gomery, and Donna Lucas.
Council is trembling and shaking
for fear that the Pub will field iti

that case Cam Gorrie and Walter
Kennedy will drop out of the Council
It has come to our ears that the
Council had appropriated large sums
for the purchase of grease paint and
nose putty, On investigation by a
member of our staff, it was revealed
that they were at temping to disguise
Bardsley and Willoughby as Sumner
and Gorrie. As a result of this, all
Council players will be required to
wash their faces before the game.
Although we realize that this unaccustomed act wil undoubtedly horrify them, we can take no chances.

World Crisis Due To

this clashes with Hitler's previously
cited intention cf uniting all Germans. The outcome of this situation,
with which is also tied up the question of the restoration of the Haps-
burgs therefore remains doubtful. In
central Europe, Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia have drawn together in an Anti-German Pro-French
Little Entente. In all these questions
Great Britain with a National Government which the speaker character-
ibed as "having never really coalesced" has pursued a woefully inadequate foreign policy in the lecturer's
opinion. France also is handicapped
by internal dissention and very recently by the assassination of her able
foreign minister Louis Barthou.
In the Far East trouble centres
mainly about Japan. Japan's seizure
of Manchuria from China and her
transformation of it into the nominally independent state of Manchukuo,
has proved distasteful to Russia. This
latter country is disquieted in the
west by Hitler's declaration "that
further German expansion will be
eastward," and in the cast by Japan's
vigorous and militant policies in
Mancukuo. The United States has
refused to recognize Manchukuo, She
is also not pleased with Japan's
•'Hands off Asia" policy. Progress
toward disarmament on land has recently reached an impasse but preliminary negotiations regarding the
1936 Washington Conference have got
under way. Here Japan's claim for
increased tonnage is likely to prove
the stumbling block, for the Nippon
government is headed by an admiral.

The Thunderbirds are away again
on their cup collecting quest, rubbing

"Machine-like" is a synonym vastly
overworked on sport pages, but five
minutes  concentrated  thinking,   and
ten with Mr.  Roget's   well   known
Thesaurus fail to reveal anything else
that will do tiiem justice.   No other
term can capture the precision and
regularity   with   which   they   move
down the field* apparently effortlessly, and you can almost hear the click
and hiss of some invisibe set of guide
rods and valves as pass after pass is
tossed and taken the precise instant
before the carriei* is hit and downed.
Comic relief is abundantly supplied
by the efficient but peculiar manner
in  which  the scrum  regularly  dissolves into a sort  of human  road-
roller, and the blithe abandon with
which the rear rank shoves down the
front men and walks over their faces,
Particularly    noticeable    yesterday
was the increased smoothness among
the unsung heroes of the forward line
in blocking Rowing Club dribbles.
Roy's Moustache
Roxborough went over for the first
try early in the half, after a thrilling
chase down ths field after a ranging
kick.   Rcxy and a Clubber went into
a simultaneous dive for tho ball as it

V.A.C. Outplayed By
In a drizzling rain, a scant crowd
of 250 watched the much improved
Varsity Grid squed provide one of
the most exciting games of the season. It was Varsfty's ganve from start
to finish. V.A.C. scored by a one-
side kick under which May of V.A.C.
got. The "U" squad failed to hinder
his twenty-five \ard run for a touchdown. Varsity brilliantly outplayed
Burley'3 football team throughout the
game, running up 11 first downs
against 7 for VA.C. and completing
4 out of 6 forward passes.
Kendall Stan
The Thundo.'birds showed much
fight, the line a stone-wall defence,
through back a V.A.C. invasion on
the four yaTd line which marked the
only real threat of V.A.C. during the
game. Kendall kept the fight in the
Varsity squad by gaining yards and
first downs again and again, the aerial attack in the first half provide!)
the most outstanding feature of the
game. Kendall threw six passes, of
which Mclntyre completed three, and
Roberts one. Willoughby and Kendall were the most outstanding players on the field.
V.A.C. Scores Touch
A completed pass, Kendall to Mclntyre, put Varsity in position to let J
Kendall kick to the dead-line for the
first point of thc game. Again, late
in the first qiinter Kendall booted
the pigskin behind the V.A.C. line,
where the revolver was rouged for
the second point. Varsity threatened
a touchdown early in the second period. However, ihe only score was another kick to thc dead-line by Kendall,
At the end of thc first half, May of
V.A.C. got loose for a touchdown. In
the third quarter Tiny Rader intercepted a V.AC, lateral pass, and ran
thirty yards for a touchdown. But
the play was called off-side, and the
score disallowed Two more kicks
to the dead-line by V.A.C. brought
the score to 7-3. The Varsity team

slippery ball pi evented them. The
grounds at Cambie Saturdi y were in
very slippery condition. The rain
didn't bother thc players, but the wet
muck made the ball heavy, and made
neat footwork impossible.
There was nut a great deal of excitement in the first half as the boys
squelched, slid and slithered over the
grounds. Shots were taken at both
goals, but the custodians were equal
to the occasions.
During the intermission, the Thunderbirds changed their name to Mud
Hens, and were more at home. They
sloshed down  thc field, and from a
series of passes. Otie Munday slipped
the ball past the goalie.   A few minutes   later,    Maccabees   evened    the
count,   and   then   forged   ahead   as

Fourteen Busses To Take Student Crowd
To Game From Pep Meeting
Lectures Cancelled Monday Afternoons
"U.B.C. has defintely accepted the University of Alberta's
challenge for a Hardy Cup game." With these words Captain
Freddy Bolton of the Canadian Football Club started a whirlwind campaign for the retention of Varsity's premier athletic
trophy: the Hardy Cup, emblematic of the Inter-Collegiate
Football championship. The big game is scheduled for next
Monday, November 5, at Athletic Park.
Earlier decisions to let the cup go, ized on the campus to march to the
park. Fourteen buses will be on hand
to take the students directly to the
game. U.B.C. has guaranteed the
Golden Bears S100, as well as a percentage of the gate receipts.
The Alberta Golden Bears are provincial champion.;, and they have one
of the strongest teams in years. They
are favored to carry off the cup. But,
they were just as strong favorites
last year when the Blue and Gold
trimmed them by a 12-5 score to retain   the  title.
The University of B.C. has held
the cup in 1923, '31, '32 and '33, and
they have no intention of letting it
go without a liar.l fight. Freddy Bolton, captain of the team, reports that
the boys are in excellent shape and
are rarin' to go. It remains for the
student body to get solidly behind
this game.
Ivar Moe the importation from
Washington, will be out every day
with the team. The squad as a whole
has shown vast improvement under
his tutelage, a > shown by their performance  against   V.A.C.   Saturday.
by default had been greeted by
screams of disapproval, both on the
campus and down town. The local
sport scribes started advising the
Thunderbirds to take up knitting, or
to try tiddly winks. U.B.C. was supposed to go buck to Alberta for the
Hardy Cup games this year, but as
Alberta could net guarantee the series they asked Varsity to bring them
out here. But it costs plenty to bring
a team out, and U.B.C. hasn't got
plenty, so they were willing to default the cup. As Meralomas are
bringing Alberta out, Varsity has
agreed to keep them over the weekend and play Monday.
The Thunderbirds are Western Inter-Collegiate Football champs and
they are going to prove it or go down
fighting. Work of retaining the cup
has already begun. The Pep Club
is organizing a monster rally for
Monday noon. All lectures from 2\

Towards the close of the first half
Varsity was awarded a penalty kick
directly in front of the Mounties'
posts but were unable to make it
Only once during the second half
was Varsity in clanger and for the

Miss  Willoughby As
V.A.C. Down the
Staging another thrilling dose*
fought contest, the Vanity basketball'
ers dropped a tough game to the
V.A.C. team on Saturday night... The
team was a bit ragged ln Its passes,
end, ln the first half especially) were
too slow ln their breaks. Although
Bill Swan and Ralph Henderson
played fighting games on the forward
line, Art Wllloughby's presence was
sadly missed. However, the lack of
good substitutes that was so apparent
the first game Is being overcome with
surprising rapidity. Jack Ross, especially, played a fine game Saturday
night when he relieved George Pringle at center.
The game started very slowly, the
few shots that were taken going wide
of their marks, For six long minutes the crowd made scarcely a
sound, and no point was scored. Then
Neil of V.A.C, flipped a beautiful
long shot from the side for the first
score. Bob Osborne, V.A.C. skipper,
shoved the leather through the hoop
after a foul shot and McLeod sank a
nice long heave to make the score
6-0 for the clubbers.
Guerney Hurt
Captain Bard.'ley started the scoring for the Thunderbirds when he
put in a close-in shot. This was followed by a basket by Guerney of
V.A.C, who twisted his knee on the
next play. The new rules state that
no time-outs may be taken, and consequently, the injured player was
forced to stand in the bacK court until the play endca.
Varsity scored three times to tie
the score at eight all. The play became very ragged at this stage as
each team threw away three or four
passes. A playe' on the V.A.C. team
passed the ball to a Varsity player,
who politely passed it hack to a
V.A.C. men. A fine one-handed shot
and a foul shot by Dick Wright put
Varsity in the lead at 11-8. Then a
long heave by Hull ended the scoring
in the half to leave the count at 11-
10 for the Thunderbirds.
Play Quickens
Play began 'o quicken as the second half began, as Varsity started to
show flashes o: their old-time speed.
Ross, who came on for Henderson,
sank a fcul ,ho\ and Bardsley faked
his way around a V.A.C. guard to
score. Bob Osborne began going
places in the next few minutes to
score six points in short order. A
basket by McCrimmon put V.A.C.
ahead, but the sccre was again deadlocked as Bardsley sank one of his
famous "leftys."
Varsity Rally
V.A.C. gradually forged ahead at
this point and piled up a lead that
Varsity was unable to overcome. With
about two mintues to go V.A.C. were
leading 31-26. Varsity came to life
and gave the fans something to yell
about as they strove to cut down the
Book Exchange know, not later than ieac|. They just fell short of doing so.
