Board of Governors Are Seeking Funds For
Needy Students
On behalf of those students who are unable to continue
their courses on account of lack of funds, the University has
adopted emergency measures, en outline of which was given by
President Klinck in an interview with the Ubyssey on Tuesday.
A large number of students are un
able to enter the University on account ot lack of funds, and others
who have taken one or more years
are unable to continue for the same
reason this year. The result has been
that tha Board of Governors at a
meeting last week decided to appoint
a committee whose purpose would bo
to raise a special fund to enable do-
serving students to enter the University or continue their courses.
Committee Appointed
rrofsssor Logan, chairman of a joint
faculty committee on prises and scholarships, submitted a memorandum
which formed the basis of the discus-^,
slon. Attar the discussion the following committee was appointed: W. H.
Malkin, chairman, F. J. Burd, Chris
Spencer, and Dr. Frank Patterson.
Prof. Logan was asked to become a
member to represent the tsculty.
At the meeting of the committee,
memoranda prepared by certain members of the faculty at the request of
tho president, were submitted, referring to the need for additional scholarship, bursary and loan funds.
Bursary Campaign
Attar a session last Monday, the
committee felt that they should
launch an extended campaign to obtain a larger endowment for loans
and burssrks.
Tlie-great number of deserving students necessitated Immediate action,
and the first thing accompUahed was
tho addition of Mr, Sherwood Lett to
the committee, representing the Senate.
The committee then prepared a Ust
of citizens to Interview in an effort
to obtain enough money to tide over
the present emergency, before undertaking the larger project of a permanent loan fund.
Worthy Assistance
"The board is very enthusiastic."

Stage Effects
stated Dr. Klinck, "but it is thinking
hi terms of bursaries and loans, not
In terms of scholarships."
The president went on to explain
that scholarships are awarded whether
needed or not, whereas bursaries
combine scholarship and need, and
the money is not handed over to the
student, but goes to meet his fees,
and is not repaid. Loans, however, are
conducted on a strictly business basis,
the applicant giving guarantee of repayment, and If a minor, giving an
approved joint note.
Loans Also Mootad

Mors than 70 applicants for membership in the Players' Club met In
Arts 100 at noon yesterday to receive
their parts for the acting try-outs
on Wednesday and Thursday.
Dr. P. C. >Valker, honorary president, gave them some hints on act-
big, particularly for the two teat
pieces, scenes from "The School for
Scandal" and Columbine." Nancy
Symes, president, also spoke briefly.
Hie would-be thesplans were then
divided Into pairs to rehearse their
parts as foUows:

centrate On Lighting and Scenery
Tlie Players' Club this year plans
to give as much attention to production as it has formerly done to act-
big. Lighting, scenery, costumes and
properties are not to be mere incidentals; they are to be impressionistic
of the theme and mood of the play.
Dr. D. C. B. Duff, of the bacteriology department, is to guide the
club in this attempt. He has had experience at Hart House, Toronto, and
wiU be art supervisor of production,
not only designing the sets but showing the stqge crews how to build
It will be the first time that the
club has attempted to construct all
its own scenery, but several mem-
ers are going at i* with great keenness and expect to produce some
interesting results.
The electricians, also, will have a
new interest in their work this year.
Impressionistic aeU depend greatly
on light, and so there will be opportunity to display the powers of the
stage switchboard as never before.
The next production of the club
will be on theatre night of homecoming week. Gordon Hilker, vice-
president, has been put in charge,
with power to appoint any helpers
he needs.
Other appointments confirmed by
the executive at a meeting on Tuesday were: Margaret Stewart, to supervise properties and costumes; Margaret Palmer, to have charge of the
book distribution bureau; Margaret
Ecker, to look after the green room;
Gerald Prevost, to be publicity agent.
The try-outs for new members are

Scorns Affairs
Of the Ancients
"Who was Cain's wife?" Well,
who was she? Dr. W. B. Riley, cf
Minneapolis, Minn., "world famous
fundamentalist," gave no direct answer to the question when he addressed the Varsity Christian Union
on "Is Man a Developed Monkey?"
Wednesday afternon, but a room-full
ot U.B.C. studenta In Arts 304 heard
some interesting things about unholy
professors and text books, the Book
of Genesis, and the "utterly false"
phUoaophy of evolution.
The reverend doctor from the "Bible
Belt" of Minnesota ssld he hoped he
had a few mlUion young friends
across Canada and the United States
and in other parts of the world. Ha
had taken part ln twenty-six debates
on evolution and "had yet to loss
one." There was no such thing, he
said, as the transmutation of species.
Science wu knowledge gained and
verified by experimentation and "had
there aver been a single case of such
transmutation proved by experimentation?"
"Utterly False"
The question Dr. Riley was posing
was the Munchausenesque one of
"Vas you there, Sharllo?" No scientist had ever been on hand when the
amoeba evolved into the worm, shall
we say? The theory of evolution had
no kinship to science. It was "an
utterly false philosophy."
Dr. Riley drew a picture of a Darwin wracked and bent with doubt
at the end of his life's labor. He
mentioned with Intimacy his old
friend, Mr. Bryan (WUUam Jennings
Bryan of the Tennease Evolution
Case) and referred once or twice to
the famous Scopes' trial. In short,
many studenta were for the first
time seeing a real honest-to-goodness
"Bible Belt" fundamentalist in action
as part of thrir university education.
Divine Intervention
Dr. RUey saw in the sterility of
mules the edict of God, which forbade the propagation of any species
other than those he created "in the
beginning." He later sent these species
en masse Into the Ark.
At the end of the lecture the "who
was Cain's wife" question waa asked
and no direct answer given. Studenta In the common room afterward
considered Dr. RUey might have
used the answer of the darkle
preacher, who when told by a dusky
skeptic that he would become a
churchgoer if the preacher could answer the same question, replied:
"Brudder, you wUl never be holy if
you show such an interest in other
people's wives."
No official word has yet come as
to whether all the text books of science atudenta will be declared out-
of-date, though doubts are now assailing the minds of some of the
members of the Varsity Christian
C__________-__-E-] International Guilt
Of Japan Queried
Professor Angus Takes Pessimistic View of
Prospects For International Co-operation
Is Japan making a reasonable demand on the world, which
the world is refusing?
That was the question which faced the fifth biennial con-
ference of the Institute of Pacific Relations this summer at
Banff, declared Professor H. F. Angus to the International Relations Club at its opening banquet held Wednesday evening in
Union College. I
Though the birth rate in Japan was not increasing at the
rate depicted by alarmists, but was slowing down, it was never-
theless estimated that the next two or three years would bring
250,000 young Japanese to the working age.

The meeting was held for the purpose of explanlng the campus athletic activities to the freshmen.
Chairman Max Stewart named the

He said that athletics are an essential part of each man's college Ufe.

should be a success this year.

"Resolved that some measure of
governmental control similar to the
N.l.R.A. Is essential in the best interests of the people of Canada" Is
the resolution to be debated at the
opening meeting of the Parliamentary Forum Tuesday night at 8: IS in
Arts 100. W. W. Lefaux and Howard S. Coulter, Vancouver barristers,
wiU lead the discussion while Prof.
J. Friend Day will act as speaker of
the house.
Mr. Lefaux will speak for the negative against Mr. Coulter for the affirmative, each of the leaders being
allowed forty minutes. After these
speakers the debate will be open to
students In general.
Any university student is eligible
to belong to the Forum upon payment of a fee of twenty-five cents.
Ernie Brown, president of the organization, states that in addition to
the regular meetings, a radio debate
with University of Alberta on the
NJ.R.A. wiU be held on Oct. 13 over
stations of the Canadian Radio Commission, in which U.B.C. wiU be rec-

purpose of choosing a team to represent Western Canada against one

"Tlie world Is not a 'prison house'
but a kind of spiritual kindergarten
where millions of bewildered infants

Slater briefly traced the life of this
comparatively little-known American

at Harvard, his life of poverty in
New York, his recognition by President Theodore Roosevelt in IMS, and
his subsequent attainment of the

Yale University.
The paper mentioned the various
forms of Robinson's writings including character studies, narratives,

In the'present unhappy financial plight of
this province, there should be an ever-increasing interest taken by students in the affairs of,
government. t
Mis-government has been the unfortunate
fate of British Columbia throughout its whole
career. To-day the people are reaping the mistakes of the past. The university is an acute
sufferer in this respect.
It is an admitted fact that the province is
on the verge of bankruptcy. This fact vitally
affects the youth of the country. It is they who
have to pay the price for the mistakes of the
past. With the youth lies the solution of
these problems.
An ever-increasing interest is being shown
throughout British Columbia in political issues
by the young people. The university should
be tiie logical centre for this activity. Unfortunately this does not seem to be the case.
Throughout the whole province discussion
groups are being organized for the purpose of
enquiring into the economic and political state.
These groups appear to be sadly lacking at
the university.
An encouraging sign, however, is the work
being undertaken by the Parliamentary Forum. They seem to be the sole organization on
the campus who plan to devote any of their
time to the most pressing issues of the day as
they affect British Columbia. There should
be a large public interest in the debate being
held on Tuesday night between two of the local
political figures.
In this age of woe and tribulation, it is very
refreshing to find people still engrossed in the
problem of our simian ancestry. We were
under the impression that the topic had been
completely thrashed out in the famous Tennessee monkey trial.
Such does not seem to have been the case.
The recent visit to the campus of a distinguished gentleman from that enlightened area
of the United States known as the Bible Belt
has given a decided impetus to the age-old
Poor Charles Darwin must shiver (even if
he is where the Fundamentalists say he is)
every time he contemplates the torrent of
argumentation his famous tome has evoked. It
all seems so unnecessary. It would appear
as if the chief refutation of fundamentalism is
the antics of some of the Fundamentalists.

Professor Angus challenged the widely accepted notion of Japan as scapegoat in international affairs, in an address given to a Union
College banquet yesterday.
The overflowing of her boundaries the professor ascribed to Japan's virtual isolation from
Western nations, one outcome of the growing
craze for exclusive nationalism in favor of international co-operation.
The view was also advanced that in view of
this excessive nationalism "we must not expect to do in a few months by intellectual cooperation what it has taken centuries to accomplish by wars and natural adjustments."
To the last one might reply that since aggression in modern times is always unprofitable—as Norman Angell proves beyond refutation—there is simply no reason why "wars
and natural adjustments" should be attempted.
Japan herself has learnt that lesson. As Professor Angus admits, it was "disappointing to
the Japanese and tragic to Manchuria."
As regards Japan overflowing her boundaries, the League of Nations some years ago ad-
ThE    Wm-T\U 5
Today Arthur and I have decided to abandon the shoes and ships and sealing-wax in
favor of an all-engrossing subject, words of
songs. Arthur, of course, prefers nautical
songs such as "Asleep in the Deep" and "The
Road to Mandalay." I shall never forget the
look of stark disappointment in his limpid sea-
green eyes the day he discovered that the first
line of the "Prisoner's Song" was not "0 I fish
I had the wings of an angel." Even now that's
one of the reasons for the perpetual bitter
tear.   We both like Rachmaninoff's Prelude
because we think it must be such good exercise to play it. But we won't bring the personal element of taste into it.
We once objected to the inanity of the
"June spoon moon" school, unfortunately to a
genuine song writer. He fixed a cold eye, one
on each of us, and we quivered. Then he said
very coldly, "Name three rhymes for garbage,
or side-walk," he paused a moment, then added, "Or for that matter, tape-worm." Well,
Arthur and I crumpled under that. So we're
leaving popular song writers alone in this discussion.
There was a pair of lines that seemed pretty
masterful to us.  They occurred in a song last
year, "Cabin on the Cotton" and they ran:
"We took the good, and we took the evil, ,
Laughed at all care, and the old boll weevil."
That seems poetry to us.
Some misinterpretations of songs are very
amusing. We can remember once very distinctly hearing twenty or so young children
warbling a line in "The, Maple Leaf" which
ran like this: "Wolfe the Donkey's Hero Came."
Arthur thought in the interests of patriotism
we should correct them, but in the interests of
humor we let it go. And that calls to mind
some of our own experience with national anthems.
Dr. J. H. King was nominated for the provincial legislature for the constituency of East
Kootenay by the Liberal party when we were
rather young. We always enjoyed singing the
British national anthem at the close of everything because we could sing it twice as loud
as anybody else. Now the first two lines lent
themselves without alteration to the circumstance, but a little alteration was required in
the fourth line, which came out
"Send him to Victoria,
Happy and glorious,"
and it seemed pretty slick tp us. Unfortunately our lusty tone was our undoing, and we
were taken aside and talked to. Our general
impression of the situation after that was that,
it wasn't taboo to buy votes, and ft wasn't forbidden to kiss babies for votes, but it just
wasn't cricket to pray for them. To our intense satisfaction, Dr. King did get to Victoria, happy and glorious, and we've always
felt we played no small part in thus stealing
a march on the opposition.
Arthur and I both have little pet misinterpretations. He always sings:
"O give me a home where the buffalo roam,
Where the beer and the canteloupe play."
And my favorite comes from a radio program
of years ago sponsored by the laundries of
America. I never have found the true set of
words to it, but in my mind it will always be:
"O we send our clothes to the laundry,
They come back spick and span,
He bites the buttons off the shirts,
God bless the laundry man."
I've tried to stop Arthur, but he insists on
me asking you if you know the home brew
song.   Yes, "You Ferment for Me."
All the seats in the lecture rooms of the
Arts building bear this inscription on the back:
"Guaranteed Restmore." O the irony of it!
'S mutiny, that's what it is!

Qualifications for membership —
Membership is open to all undergraduates who have taken or are
taking any course in chemistry hign-
er than Chemistry 2.
The Chemistry Society is one of
the University's oldest organizations,
having been formed in 1916 at the
old Fairview buildings. Among its
former members are such men as Dr.
Douglas Macintosh chief, research
chemist at Shewinnigan Falls, John
Ru-s.1, now with Eastman Kodak,
and Charles Wright, at present in
the   General  Electric  Laboratories.
The object of the society is to present an opportunity for chemistry
students to meet on a social basis
and to discuss interesting phases of
modern chemistry. The closed meetings, open only to members, are held
once a month; they consist chiefly
of papers on chemistry given by
members. Between closed meetings
are held monthly addresses by outside speakers, to which all are admitted.

Ins* Policy
By Stewart
A doleful note was struck by Max
Stewart, In the opening meeting of
the Men's Athletic Association on
Tuesday. "Owing to the reduced
registration of atudenta tills year,"
he said, "the activities of the association will be under a decided handicap."
Tht annual elections resulted in
the appointment of the foUowing officers: honorary presidents, Dr. J.
O. Davidson, Dr. O. Shrum; vice-
president, Bobby Oaul and secretary,
Oeorge Henderson.
Max Stewart then went on to outline the Insurance policy for the
coming year. Studenta are obliged
to contribute 12.50 towards a 15.00
premium, the A.M.S. paying the remaining amount. Thia covers aU
medical, dental and hospital bills up
to tht value of 1150. This year, contrary to last year's poUcy, X-rays

Official medical advisor for tht university is Dr. Oordon Burke. AU
students must get in touch with Dr.
Burto immediately unless their Injuries demand immediate attention
or unless they are unable to reach
Dr. Shrum speaking briefly, said
that this year there was an unusual
amount of talent among the freshmen and advised the various student athletic clubs to get hold ot
the freshmen right away.
Dr. Davidson outlined the amateur
status of athletes in Canada and insisted that the view taken by the
newspapers on this subject were
wrong. He stated that a great deal
of harm was done on this account
because freshmen coming in from
the high schools had a wrong impression of the amateur athlete.

clinging tenaciously to some of his
And while in this wobbly stage the
knock-out punch came which just
about floored him tor the count, the
advent of Canadian football and its
army of colorful, and in most cases,
collegiate supporters.
But the Old Man is rallying again
and the question is, who's going to
take the credit.
Rugby is sweeping California, Stanford alone, whom Varsity meets in the
Washington Stadium December 23 and
in Vancouver Christmas Day, having
four more fifteens than they had last
year. Other colleges in the South are
taking up the game and leagues are
being formed left and right with a
strong possibility that the English code
be adapted as a major sport.
But what this Is all leading up to,
la how much support Is the Vanity
fifteen going to get and what kind of
a team art they going to turn out to
meet their Southern challengers In
their first inter-collegiate game with
an American aquad since 1924 when
they won the World Trophy, representing the Pacific Coast Inter-Collegiate EngUsh Rugby championship:
It's a chance for the University of
British Columbia to make a name for
itself down the Coast and be recog-
erican universities' athletic Ufe. Are
they going to take it?
In past years it was an annual competition among Pacific Cast universities but since 1024, the year Varsity
captured It, the annual games have
fallen off. The year U. B. C. won lt
they defeated the Stanford fifteen,
reaUy a combination of Stanford and
CaUfornia, and the outfit that won the
1024 Olympic Rugby championship
from a field of European entries.
And now that the English pastime
is taking the States by storm ( and this
Is no wild hyperbole) its about time
that British Columbia's own Varsity
got hot and began offering opposition to their Southern brothers in at
least one Une of athletic endeavor,
and what is better suited than a game
that has been born and reared on
British soil.
Even American footballers are going out for the English code, some
discarding their American game outright while others are playing both.
Crowds flock to every game played.
Varsity has another strong team
this year and with a lot of support
from the students, wiU be a lot
stronger. Their scrum is practically Intact from last season while Bobby
Gaul is back to add speed and experience to the three-quarter Une. But
what helps every man on the squad
Is a cheering section of rooting students who will get solidly behind their
team and put the University of British Columbia on the sport map, not
only in British Columbia but also in
the States.
And in case a gentle reminder is
necessary, Varsity clashes with Stanford in the Washington Stadium in
Seattle, two days before Christmas,

Theologs Numerous
At Anglican College
An unusually large registration of
students was welcomed by Dr. Vance
at the Commencement meeting of
Anglican Theological College on Oct.
2. In his opening address, Dr. Vance
informed the students of the resignation of the Warden, Rev. C. H.
Shortt. Mr. Shortt has retired at tho
age of seventy-five, and is now living with his sister in Toronto, where
the faculty and students are sending
him a telegram of birthday congratulations.
Mr. Shortt's lectures are to De undertaken by the Rev. D. P. Watney
B.A., B.D., whUe the lectures in Old
Testament Exegis will this year be
given by the Rev. C. B. Reynolds,
M.A., B.D.
Dr. Trumpour spoke of the necessity of earnest work in a ^Theological
career. Mr. Watney foUowed with
an address on the community Ufe of
a college, which the freshmen often
find  difficult  to  understand.
The registration is especially large
this year, numbering thirty-five students, of whom thirty are intramural, two extra-mural, and three
are engaged  in post-graduate work.
As most of the members of last
year's teams are back again, and as
there seems a possibility of talent
among the freshman class, the College Is hoping for a year of keener
competition in athletics, both in
class events and in competition with
the Union College.
Heavenly Excursion
Set For Wednesday
Choosing "Shadows" as the topic
of his address to the students who
are interested in the stars, Mr. W. E.
Harper, assitant director of the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory at
Victoria, will lead his audience
through the millions of light-years
between the more distant stars and
this little sphere on an excursion of
the heavens scheduled for Wednesday
noon in Science 200.
The time of the address has been
changed from the afternoon to the
noon-hour to avoid conflict with the
Track Club program. In former
years the Physics lecture room has
always been packed to hear the addresses sponsored by the Physics
Club and given by the directors of
the Victoria Observatory.
Mr. Harper will also address the
meeting of the Royal Astronomical

Mule-Footed Pig
Puzzles Earnest
The question of evolution raised
its head and wailed lustily about the
campus last week. Members of the
Biology department are rather inclined to agree with the recent
Ubyssey editorial as regards the lecture given by Dr. Riley last week.
It would appear that Dr. RUey
cornea from Minnesota. He must be
one of those prophets who are not
appreciated in their own country, for
when the Fundamentalist campaign
took place in Minnesota a few years
ago, Dr. A. R. Brown of Vancouver
was called in to assist. There does
not seem to be any record of Dr.
Riley's name.
Dr. Hutchinson and Dr. Fraser
have called attention to certain other
facta, censuring Dr. Riley's attitude
as weak and his reasons for his statements as still weaker. There are
several hundred varieties of roses in
existence at present which were completely unknown ten years ago. Perhaps Dr. Riley can explain how they
originated. There have oeen scientists "on the spot" watching their
evolution. Also, in the central states
of America (perhaps In Minnesota
itself) there has been created and
perpetuated a curious animal known
as a "mule-footed pig." Another
puzzler for Dr. RUey!
Dr. Hutchinson and Dr. Fraser have
given it Is their opinion that Dr.
Riley cannot know a great deal
about Biology, for they state that
those who know most about biological studies believe In evolution.
"However," concludes Dr. Hutchinson, "please do, not quote us on the
subject of Caln'a wife."
Radio   Debate
Plans Announced
"Resolved that Canada should institute a recovery plan similar to the
NRA," is to Be the subject of a radio debate to take place between
the University of British Columbia
and the University of Alberta on October 13, over the western network
of  tho Canadian  Radio  Commission.
The British Columbia team will
consist of Ernest Brown, presiclo.it
of the Forum, and Richard McDougall, vice-president, and will attempt to repeat the win scored over
Alberta in last year's contest. The
winning university is determined by
a poll taken of letters received by
the respective colleges.
The contest will be the first of a
series of debates between Canadian
university teams, and will inaugurate the IntercoUegiate Radio Debating League. The latter will be divided Into two sections, comprising
the western universities, Britsh Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba, and the eastern colleges.
Each team will debate twice in An
elimination series to determine the
winner of the respective sections, and
a final contest over a transcontinental network between eastern and
western representatives will determine the national championship.

John Ridington left the city Oct. S
to confer with Dr. Frederick Kappel,
president of the Dominion Carnegie
Corporation of New York,
Two years ago Mr. Ridington was
selected as chairman of a special
committee appointed to survey library conditions in Canada. As a result of their report, which was published last spring, $185,000 was granted to Canadian college libraries by
the corporation, among their other
donations. The University is receiving $5000 per year for three years.

More Ph.D. Degrees
For Varsity Grads
U.B.C. grads have once more
scoTed in the fields of research.
Miss Gertrude M. Smith, who is an
assistant professor in the Zoology
department, was granted her Ph.D.
from Berkeley, California last month.
Her thesis covered research on the
anatomy of the nasal region, in some I
of the salamanders. It was neces-;
sary to make microscopic slides of
eight different species.
Miss Dorothy Mawdsley, who was
on the staff of the English department until about a year ago, is now
teaching at King Edward High
School. She obtained her Ph. D. at
the University of Chicago. Her thesis
was entitled, "The Life and Works

The annual Rhodes Scholarship
award for this University will be announced on the first Saturday in
December which falls on the 2nd,
when the British Columbia Committee of Selection meets to choose the
winner from all applicants.
Selection is based upon the general character* of the man, as indicated by his scholastic standing, his
general qualities of manhood, his
display of moral force of character
and quaUtles of leadership. No written examination is required.
Application must be made to Sherwood Lett, Royal Trust BuUdlng,
Vancouver, not later than Oct. 31,
1933. To be eligible, one must be
male, unmarried, not younger than
nineteen years, not older than
twenty-five years, and have completed the sophomore year. Residence at the province from which he
desires the scholarship is not essential, but he must have completed at
least two years in the university
from which he applies. He must be
a British subject with at least five
years residence Ln Canada.
The winner receives a scholarship
at Oxford University worth £400 a
year for two years with an option
of a third, and any course may be
followed. The stipend is not considered sufficient for the Rhode
scholar's necessary term-time and
vacation expenses thus a supplement
of £50 a year is found advisable but
not absolutely necessary.
After the selection, the winner's
dossier is forwarded complete to the
Oxford Secretary to the Rhodes
Trustees who Is Sir Francis Wylie,

Selected   STIMULATE
The freshman smoker held last Friday night at the Moose HaU might
easily be described as \ one-act play
with four scenes, the leading role
played by Lady Nicotine. A feature
of the play is a chorus of some two
hundred freshmen complete with
green toques, placards, and the occasional green face.
The first scene takes place at Heidelberg, Germany. As the curtain rises two duelists are seen fighting in
a garden lit only by a pale moon. An
attentive audience sees the glint of
steel and hears the odd grunt as one
of the combatants is hit. At last all
is over and the upturned lights reveal Len Kuypers and his partner,
both memhert of the Swedish Olympic team of 1927.
The scene changes abruptly. From
Heidelberg we are transported to
Vancouver's Arena. Boxing and
wrestling fans fill the vast building.
A burst of applause greets the entrance of BIU Hazlitt and Dave Todd,
both of whom are clad In boxing

Skulls, dirty brown skulls, smirking
down at you from the walls, that is
the first thing you notice on entering
the office of Professor M. Y. WilUams
of the Geology department.
Gruesome maybe, but interesting,
especially if you listen to all the stories Professor Williams can tell you
about them.
A Criminal and a Curse
One of the oldest in the collection
dates back to prehistoric times. It
belonged to quite an old man for
the sutures in the head are tightly
closed. It was discovered on Dead-
man's Island which is in Tofino Sound.
Legend says that this was the island
where the Indians buried all their
criminals, so the owner of the skull
must have been a murderer, thief,
traitor or some other sort of felon a
thousand or so years ago. There was
also a curse laid on Deadman's Island
and all who set foot on it are doomed
to die in a very short time. Even today the island is strictly taboo and
no amount of money will induce an
Indian to guide a white man there,
However, the man who found this
particular skull still lives and is to
all appearances in the best of health.
Flat Heads
Next to the criminal reposes the
skull of an aristocratic flat head. He
belonged to a tribe which had the
peculiar custom of binding their children's heads much as the Chinese
used to bind girls' feet. In infancy
while the bones of the head were still
soft the head was pressed between
two boards and bound tightly in this
position till growth was complete. This
gave the head a queer elongated
shape, going straight back from the
eyebrows and leaving no forehead at
all. Only the children of chiefs had to
undergo this treatment, slaves were
allowed to retain a normal shaped
head. So the specimen in Professor
Williams' office must have belonged
to a chief of some sort.
Though his tribe lived far in the
interior of B.C. this particular skull
was found on the coast. He may
have been a trader down here on business but was more likely a prisoner
or hostage who died in captivity.
An Indian Battle
Facing these two on the opposite
wall is the most perfect and probably
the most recent specimen. It belonged
to a fairly young man for the teeth
are practically perfect. It is interesting to note that the Indians, unlike
ouruselves, had a direct front bite.
Their teeth do not overlap at all. This
skull was found on an old battle field
near the Fraser River. The owner
was evidently a chief because several
fine bracelets wer found on his skeleton. His cheek bone is broken, probably by the arrow or stone axe that
killed him years ago in that long forgotten battle.
The Museum
Further down the hall in the Geology museum, App. Sc. 116, Professor
Williams has many more interesting
specimens among which the students
can roam at will.
Besides the geological rocks and ores
there   are   several   cases   of   stuffed
(Please turn to Page 3)
singing stirring choruses and yells
that have a familiar ring.
Once again we snift the scene and
are back again in Moose Hall, Dr.
Sedgewick rises to speak. In a C.w
words he advises the assembled multitude to do no work before January 1st, and while they are at the
university to learn as many nice and
convenient vices as possible. "As for
me," he says, "Nothing stronger than
skimmed milk has ever passed my
lips, and never, never, tobacco." A
few moments later he is seen touching unsuspecting freshmen for cigarettes.
Dr. Burke speaks briefly concerning Canadian Rugby. He says that
support at games is an important
factor in winning and urges all those
who can to turn out to the games.
He also asks for more men to turn
out to practices.
The curtain rings down on a
chorus of freshies singing lustily with
Reynold Williams and his Ambassadors providing the music. The air is
thick with smoke, and it is pleasant
to get out Into the fresh night air.
Arabian Dangers
Topic of Lecture
Stirring tales of bloodthirsty warfare between rival Arabian tribes
were recounted by Bertram Thomas-,
noted explorer in a lecture in the
Hotel Vancouver, Saturday night
under the auspices of the National
Council of Education.
Mr. Thomas told of the many dangers that confronted travellers in the
wilder regions of Arabia. A constant
lookout of scouts as well as a rearguard were required to protect caravans from marauding warriors. One
of the chief reasons for attack was
due to the belligerent fanaticism of
many of the Mohammedans.
The shortage of oases and water-
holes was also a constant source of
friction between the tribesmen, as
ownership of an oasis was a powerful economic force.
Dean Brock presided at the meeting. ¥

A word of appreciation is due Ole Olsen
and his orchestra, who put on such a splendid
performance on Friday noon. To the accompaniment of, or perhaps we should say, in spite
of, clamorous ejaculations from the gallery,
the maestro of the baton delivered a program
which met with the approval of some 1400
students. We are glad to add our thanks to
theirs, in the hope that Mr. Olsen will reappear
soon under the auspices of the Pep Club.
One of the most significant manifestations
of higher culture at this university is the conduct of the student body at noon-hour meetings in the auditorium.
Certain members of our intelligencia seem
to consider it their privilege to,drop all the
outward aspects of gentlemen, immediately
upon entering the auditorium precincts.
Academic boorishness was displayed in all
its glory at the recent noon-hour presentation
of the Players' Club and the Friday pep meeting. In the former case the results of long
weeks of patient effort were completely ruined
by the vociferous comments of certain self-
styled critics of the drama.
The pep meeting afforded an excellent opportunity for our amateur hoodlums to display
their versatility. It seems the essence of bad
taste, that guests on the campus who have
volunteered their services for entertainment
purposes should be subjected to the barrage of
missiles that featured the Friday gathering. It
is an exhibition of humour that does not strike
a responsive chord in decent people.
The state of the auditorium after the thundering herd had completed their noon-hour
carousal bears witness to the need for drastic
reform. An accumulation of lunch papers,
apple cores, and miscellaneous rubbish lay on
the floor ankle-deep. It may be evidence that
university students are not underfed, but it
certainly casts a decided slur on their manners.
So bad has the situation become, the bursar
has announced that if the noon-hour wallow-
ings continue, the auditorium will be closed
in. future to all noon-hour meetings. The offending students should take warning.
It is a decided reflection on our society as
it is constituted today, that students of high
scholastic merit find it impossible to continue
their university training because of economic
In a praiseworthy attempt to alleviate this
unfortunate situation the Board of Governors
have taken steps to conduct a campaign to
raise funds for bursaries among the citizens of
this province.
Many people must be under the impression
that the university is in a chronic state of appeal for help. The present time is perhaps the
least conducive for a successful canvass, for
Nevertheless the need is one of urgent necessity. The public must be made to realize that
all money invested in the university brings actual dividends incomparably greater than appears on the surface.
The province will need intelligent and progressive university graduates to lift it out of
its present morass of debt. The university is an
insurance policy on the future. The citizens
should not allow their premium to lapse.

Somebody Blundered
We got away to a bad start this year, Peter
and I. First (and much the least important)
we set down 'magnus opus' for magnum opus',
a mistake which, considering the number of
Latin courses we've taken, is nothing less than
Then, down at the printers', somebody
blundered, with the result that the poem we
were treasuring for our first issue received a
prime mangling. We express our sincere regrets to the author, Dr. Coleman, and print
his verses here as they should have appeared.
To a Saxaphone
You are the soul of longing and of tears,
And memories of the woes of vanished years
Speak in your tones. What curious circumstance
Made you a partner of the giddy dance ?
Banjo, piano, violin,
Trombone's blare and cymbal's din,
Big drum, little drum, Chinese gong,
Triangle's tinkle and banal song
Have their place, but 'tis hard to see
What made you one in such company.
You are the snarl of a fiend in hell,
You are the solemn funeral bell,
You are a sob and you are a shriek,
But the voice of joy you seldom speak.
And yet it must be there remains
Some hidden reason that explains
Your presence when our human kind
Most seek to leave all care behind.
The meaning of the mystery
Is Surely not perversity
But that we feel that, somehow, sadness
Is at the root of all our gladness.
—H. T. J. Coleman.
A few words on Dr. Coleman's work.
Books that he has published include the popular 'Cockle Shell and Sandal Shoon,' and 'A
Poet Confides.' Much of his most successful
verse deals with the outdoor world of British
Columbia; a keen observer, he has the fortunate knack of accurate and artistic description.
In our opinion, his 'I Saw Five Peaks' deserves
a place with the best of poems of the high hills.
What—No Contributions ?
Peter-the-ape has been hovering about the
mail-box anxiously of late, waiting for the
solid, pleasant thump that tells of a manuscript
for us. No luck as yet though; are we to
gather that the Bohemians of varsity are all
dead or sleeping ?
Nothing for it, then, but to prod our Muse,
drowsy from a long and idle summer, out of
her lair, and finish off the column ourselves.
("And if they can stand it, we can!" says
, The Islands
Out of the main the Islands roll
Lifting their backs like a porpoise-shoal;
The surf runs snarling in on the beaches
And, drifting over the windy reaches,
The white gulls circle and swoop and cry
And watch the little black ships go by
Between the sea and the windy sky.
Royal are the Island names, and sweet:
Big Vancouver and small Lasquit',
Galiano and Gonzales,
Texada low in the long sea-ways—
These and a thousand more beside
Echo the voice of the restless tide,
Perilous names, and names of pride.
Now the spell of the Islands, who shall name ?
Arbutus brighter than wind-whipped flame
By golden noon and by velvet night;
Red arbutus and lilies white
And somber darkness of cedar-wings
And dogwood foaming in Island springs
Weave a magic of beautiful things,
Under the sun, under the sky,
The Islands dream as the years drift by.
And sure at the end of my faring forth
The Island magic of South-in-North
Will trouble my heart with a vagrant pain
Till I know that my Odyssey was vain
And turn from the world's rim, home again.

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I cannot find words to express my
excessive disgust and disapprobation
of your attitude toward the recent
guest on the campus who so effectively disproved the Satanic theory of
Not only do I consider your report
of Dr. Riley's speech as blasphemous
and insulting, but your flippant editorial displays your shallow mind
and puerile outlook.
It is surely a sad reflection on our
modern society When our young
people should consider themselves
competent to criticize a scholar of
Dr. Riley's experience and reputation.
Dr. Riley should have the consolation of knowing however, that his
message of. enlightenment was truly
appreciated by all thinking students
in spite of depths of ignorance displayed by the Ubyssey.
Yours truly,

AU is lost. I have met the president of the Soccer Club as you advised, and I find that he Is not at
all Uke you say. In fact I think he
is positively ugly. The worst part
of it is that I asked him to visit me
at my home before I met him. I did
this by means of a note in the letter
rack. What shall I do? Woe la me,
alaa, alack! ShaU I tell him that I
made a mistake, or ahaU I try to

Knowing that you wlU do aU ln your

My Dear Dorlnda,
'You have placed me in a very em-
barraaiing poalUon. I have just returned from a meeting with the
aforesaid president of the aforesaid
soccer club of the not aforesaid university, and I regret to aay that I
could not persuade him that you did
not like him. What did you call
him ducky-wucky in your note for?
He thinks that that is just too cute
for words. In fact he can think of
nothing but you at present, although
there are many other things to attract hla attention.
Do you realize that our ideas cf
masculine pulchritude do not coincide? In future, when you write
to me, alwaya state whether or not
you prefer the simian type of beauty
or the canine. Tho president of the
many times aforesaid and blest soccer club is not quite sure which type
you prefer, and accordingly cannot
introduce you to Sciencemen or Aggies as a consequence.
As to this mess you are in, leave
that to me. I will come t. your
house on the same night as the president, and will guarantee to outquip,
outalk and even outmanoeuvre that
worthy. I am very fond of
chocolate cake and cocoanut macaroons but can get along quits nicely
on eclairs and chocolates if necessary. However, I must wear a mask
so as to keep my identity a secret.
Do not let this worry you, as you
ar. not missing much. You can explain the mask by saying that I am
running for the C.C.F. and prefer
not to be seen in the company of a
person who is a decided bolshevik.
1 think this Is the easiest way out ot
the matter. Or you might try being
sick and phoning the president, telling him not to come. You are sure
to be sick when he leaves anyway,
so you might as well have it early
and get it over with. Hoping that
you take my advice on the matter,
I remain,
Yours   dictatorlally,
Cyrius de Screpansle.

A ballad or a sonnet
To scorn the lowly freshman toque
And curses heap upon it—-
Oh. how I would rebel at this
Disgusting little bonnet!
The placard with* my name adorned
I cheerfully am wearing,
But this appalling little cap
I don with muffled swearing,
As with pretended nonchalance
My martyrdom I'm bearing.
But meanwhile I shall bide my time
In vengeful silence wait,   ,

To plan a deadlier fate,
Devise a ghastlier headgear
For the class of thirty eight!

I've been at Varsity two weeks
now and it's more damn fun! They
make you wear a crazy wool hat that
makes good earmuffs if you want,
but on account of not being cold
enough yet are really no use but
only a menace, and a sign with your
name on. The Varsity boys are the
cutest things and open the door for
you and pick up your books when
you drop them which is frequently,
that Is I mean all the boys except
the freshmen which are awful and
don't know the score which they
probably can't help, poor things, but
no doubt their mothers love them
on account of having no choice. The
place you eat is called the caf where
they have swell chips and stale cake
which you can't get a table to eat
off unless you knock someone down
and stand on their face or sit at a
sorority table and pretend you're a
sister which doesn't go over so big
because they always seem to know
you really aren't but maybe that's
because pf the hat. We have the
cutest little English teacher like a
little goblin with glasses that trots
all around the room and doesn't
know whether his glasses belong on
or off and hums and purrs all the
time like he was a mixture between
somebody's pet cat and a tractor.
He's always talking about how much
he knows but really can't be so hot
on account of I powdered my whole
nose while he was saying that anyone which didn't hang on his every
word would be thrown out on their
ear. And another thing just when
we had all picked ourselves up out
of the aisles where we had been
laughing at him he made a crack
about if an Athenian were transported to the present day he would
say "My God what cheap and dirty
things amuse these people!'
Popular Host
The lily pond, adorned with cigarette butts and lunch papers, formed
a picturesque setting for the delightful garden party given by Dr. Slagc
yesterday afternoon In honour of that
popular couple, the lily pond frogs.
The guests of honour were clad
alike in green ensembles of the fashionable cast iron, while the host received in a conservative black
trimmed with white rat. Professor
bloward greeted the guests in a
dainty gown of baby blue. Mr. Norman Hashing and Mr. Arthur Daze
appeared in frocks emphasizing the
typewriter ribbon motif and served
the guests, while Doctor Sledgewig
in a gown of shell pink, poured tea.

The object of the club Is to promote "pep" and "spirit" on the
campus and to assist any university
organization ln putting over an advertising campaign, sale of tickets
and to aid them in any other manner required. The Pep Club has
complete charge of all pep meetings
and if necessary will put on a pep
meeting for any club desiring one.
The club organizes a cheering section for all major games where the
advance sale of tickets is 150. An
advantage of membership is the training in handling large bodies of people and meeting the public.
Membership is open to freshmen
only and by tryout and vote of
members. The club calls for new
members early in November (watch
the Uyssey). Applications may be
made through the Arts Letter Rack

Blank Victoria 3-1
In  Lipton  Series
Varsity Squad Displays Brilliant Brand of
Rugby to Win Initial Encounter; Rush and
Willscroft Star; Farrington Missing
From Lineup
With a brilliant display of smart offensive and dashing defensive football, Doctor Gordon Burke's Big Four Varsity Gridders crashed into the win column in their first league game
of the season, played against the highly-touted Victoria team
at Athletic Park last Saturday afternoon.
The game, replete with thrills from the initial kickoff to
the last down in the final quarter, was undoubtedly one of the
most exciting games played on the local lot this season. Perfect
weather, a fast field and a big crowd
added to thei attraction.
It must be admitted that the U.B.C.
boys got several big breaks, but they
were on their toes and made use of
every opportunity with a fierce determination and dynamic fighting spirit
which, if contnued, wiill give them an
even chance against any team in the
Varsity Starts Badly
Minus their captain, Dick Farrington, the Blue and Gold machine functioned very badly in the opening minutes of play, and several Victoria
saUles deep' into the Varsity area were
staved off more by good luck than
anything else.
The Island boys worked their forward pass plays cleverly, and made
repeated first downs by the air route
and through the Une in the opening
frame. The students came to life
about half way through the period
when Johnstone intercepted a Victoria
forward pass, and play was even from
then on.
With less than one minute of play
left In the first quarter, Imrie of Victoria scored a deadUne kick on a return punt  to give the visitors the$.
U.B.C. Even Score,
Doug Mclntyre pepped up the local
lads after the cross-over by intercepting a forward pass and running
twenty yards. Varsity forced the play
continuously in this quarter, and 90
seconds before half time, Rush evened
the score with a beautiful fifty-yard
Third Quarter Even
Victoria started the play after the
rest period, and with the score tied
both teams were pressing, displaying
some brlUiant kicking, running and
After twelve minutes of play Rush
got away a beautiful punt which was
to pave the way for U.B.C.'s second
taUy. With the ball in their possession
on their 8-yard line, the Island boys
were held for no gain on the first
down. On the next play Oribble attempted a kick to relieve the situation, but it was effectively blocked
and bounced back over the line, giving
Varsity one point.
Victoria Almost Score
Although Varsity began the last
quarter with the same fighting spirit,
the last two minutes almost proved
disastrous. After ten minutes of play
the Blue and Gold team were within
striking distance, and Rush kicked for
another point.
Then, with the score 3 to 1, and less
than three minutes to*,go, Victoria
opened up a whirlwind aerial attack
that all but spelled defeat for U.B.C.
Gaining fifty-five yards on two successive forward pass plays the "Sleepy
City" boys placed the ball on Varsity's
twenty-five yard line with but
twenty-five seconds left to play. After
an incomplete forward pass Imrie
smashed through the line for yards,
but full time was called with less than
ten yards between the Islanders and
a touchdown.
WlUiscroft Shows Up Well
For Varsity, everyone was full of
fight, but special credit must go to
Williscroft,   Kendall  and  Rush.  Vic

The Magee twelve showed good
form and spirit in contrast to a rather inexperienced effort on the part
of the Collegians. The result of concentrating on line practice was evident in the Kerrisdale Club offensive
play, the line making holes in the
Varsity defense throughout the
whole game.
Magee also displayed exhibitions of
smart blocking and kicking. They
scored three touches as the result
of heavy line bucking; one in the
second and two in the fourth quarter.

half saw a fairly even and hard-
fought struggle. Only one goal was
scored in this stanza, the ball' flashing Into the upper corner of the net
after a strong Monument attack. Toward the end of the period, the
Stonemasons were harrasslng a tired
Varsity defence.
After the rest, the Blue and Gold
presented a re-arranged line-up, and
for the first twenty minutes, dominated the play. However, despite
constant pressure, poor finish in
front of goal spoiled all the chances,
and the duck's egg still remained
unbroken. The Monument gradually began to take a greater share in
the play, aa Varsity tired, and about
midway through the period added a
second goal, foUowing a corner.
From this time on, the Varsity attacks showed little cohesion, and
were with comparative ease broken
up. Although the forwards all worked
hard, there was little combination.
The Stonemasons meanwhile were
getting back to their previous form,
and were giving the Blue and Gold
defence a hard time. Finally their
efforts resulted in th. third goal, as
the right winger got his head to a
cross, and sent the ball In by the
post. There was no score in the remaining ten minutes.
Considering the fact that it was
the first game, and that there were
a number of men in the line-up unused to the play of the others, tho
showing given by the student eleven
was promising. With another game
or two played the old players will
have regained their steadiness, while
the recruits will have found their
feet, and a strong team should result with an exceptionally strong defence and a fast attack, .
In Saturday's game, Greenwood, a
freshman recruit, showed splendid
form in goal. Archie McDougal, who
returns after a year's absence, played
finely at left back, being strong in
both kicking and heading. The whol.
defence played well with the exception of infrequent lapses when they
allowed their men to break clear.
The half-line showed a hardworking newcomer in Tim Louie,
formerly of Chinese Students. Kozoolin and Stewart, two of last year's
stars, completed a Une which got
through a tremendous amount of
work, but has not found its true form
The forwards presented little combination, but showed plenty of speed.
They were unfortunate when good
shots by Todd, Bardwell, Martin and
Wolfe were cleared, but failed at
times to make easier opportunities
good. With practice and a little experience this weakness should soon

While Tony Osborne and his bunch
of Senior A's are worrying about
which league they are eventually
going to end up in, if any, Coach Gordie Allen has another worry on his
hands. He is trying to whip a crop
of youngsters into what may be caUed
a basketbaU team, one good enough
to give a good account of themselves
in the Intermediate A hoop league.
Monday about a dozen feUows
turned out and had one of the most
interesting practices so far. Doc. Montgomery who was one
of the best-liked figures around the varsity campus two and
three years ago,
turned up to take a
hand in the difficult
business of coaching.
Difficult, that Is,
when a pair of quln-
Coach Allen tettes get on the
floor who do the wrong thing instinctively, and hamper each other In
clumsy efforts to dribble and pass
But Doc had an answer for everything, and before'the session was over
he had pounded some things into them
that had never occurred to them before.   And Doc knew what he was
talking about.   Ask anyone who sat
in a Blue and Gold cheering section
in 1931 the reason the Senior A hoop
squad he was yeUing himself hoarse
over downed every other aggregation
in   Canada   to   take   the   Dominion
Montgomery coached that team.
And the players he turned out are
still among the first-ranking performers in greater Mainland hoop circles.
Osborne, Nicholson, Campbell, Wright,
'Matthison, Lee.   Every name has be-
'come the watchword of good basketball.
Yesterday there were two teams on
the floor. Doc topk charge of one
and Gordie the other. Pivots, and
strong passes formed meat for much
When not to dribble had everyone
jittery. The team is being built up
on fast passes and little dribbUng,
with forwards and guards alike playing position when on defence, the
man-to-man system which had the
other Burrard leaguers buffaloed last
year and put the Al Hardy trophy up
in Mr. Horn's office.
In the meantime Gordie Allen is
supervising the practices and with his
quaint brand of humour is gradually
welding the fellows Into a composite
whole. Arthur "Biff" McLeod is managing the aggregation, and is adding
his share of hoop knowledge to Gor-
die's lore and crafty tactics.

Students in Holiday
Varsity's Senior Ruggers started
their season with a victory and n
defeat over the holiday week-end.
On > Saturday they downed Rowing
Club 14-13, but yesterday encountered difficulty with Varsity Grads and
came out on the short end of an
8-0 score.
In Saturday's game with the Rowers, a last minute try by Pyle, a
newcomer to first division ranks,
turned what seemed to be certain
defeat into victory for the Blue and
Gold fifteen. At the end of the first
half Varsity was down 10-5 with
Pinkham, Clarke and Garvey contributing for the Rowers, while Pyle
and Dalton scored for Varsity.
After the rest period Mitchell went
over, but the Rowers were right
back, and following a pressing forward attack, Engles broke through on
the wing to bring the score to 13-8
for the Club. At this point of the
game, Mitchell's educated toes dropped a long one over the touch line,
to bring Varsity within 3 points of
victory. Later came Pyle's try, following a beautiful three-quarter run
started by Ken Mercer.
On Monday, Thanksgiving day,
Varsity lost to the Occasionals 8-0.
Derry Tye experienced first string

foot injury sustained in Saturday's

Many Freshmen
Make Bids For
Basket Positions
"If we get enough support we will
probably enter teams in the four
divisions." Coach Allen was talking
to the seventeen enthusiasts who
turned out for last Friday's basket
Of the twenty or so who are bidding for berths on the Senior "B"
and Intermediate teams, a good number   are  Freshmen,   some   of   whom
ve never played the game before.
These men have had four practices
since last Tuesday and are already
beginning ot look like first-class material.
Allen has asked that everybody
who is interested in the game, turn
out regardless of whether he has
played before. A special appeal is
issued for someone to manage one
of the teams. As the league starts
in about three weeks practice dates
will be announced this week.

The date and place of the first
meeting of this season has not yet
been fixed, but this question will
be settled shortly.
Membership in this club is not
open to freshmen, but is automatically conferred upon all third and
fourth year men students proceeding
to a Bachelor of Commerce degree.
The main objects of the club are
to "assist whenever possible in furthering the interests of the Commerce course, and to compete in interclass sport." Efforts are also made
to bring together both students and
members of the faculty so that all
may benefit from economic discussions outside the field of regular
studies; and although the club was
only formed a year ago, much has
been accomplished along' these lines.

From the opening whistle Occassionals pressed Varsity. During most
of the first half Varsity were penned
in their own defense quarters. Later
during the second half the Blue and
Gold squad showed more fight m<i
managed to force the play Into opposing territory.
The gamevwas marred by the manv
penalty kicks imposed by Referee
Crawford. Occasionals attempted <o
score on six of their penalty khks
but onJy succeeded once. Varsity attempted twice to gain points by the
penalty route but failed.
Bud Murray was chiefly responsible for the students' downfall, scoring all of the Orads points. He
started his point gathering spree
when he converted a penalty kick.
Later he received the ball from a
line out and ran through the Varsity backfield to place the ball behind the Varsity Une for the only
try of the game. He converted for
the final two points.
Varsity second division English
football players took a 14*-0 trimming
from Ex-Britannia squad on Saturday. The team, lacking experience
and condition, were outplayed in
every department by the former high
school stars. The chances of the sec-,
ond division fifteen repeating last
years' success do not appear as good
as they did before Saturday's game.
However, the oft mentioned Varsity
spirit may come to the for. and produce a league leading team yet.

In the course of his investigation into

Mr. Picobac penetrated the sacred

heart of Canada." Lost within the

"Can I direct you, sir," said the
voice of a uniformed attendant at his

opportunity of verifying his suspicion
that the magnates of Montreal know
more about the financial situation
than they give out for publication.
"Tell me, Mr. Director," said he,
"Where do we go from here?"
"We are going to slip down into tbe
