Above we present Peggy Fox and John Pearson. Though these
two people have probably never mt each other, they have one
point in common in that they are principles in what should be
the two outstanding social functions of the year, the Junior Prom
and the Frosh Frolic. Peggy was elected Queen of the Prom
yesterday, while Pearson got into the news by announcing that
the Frosh party would tolerate no mixed blood, freshmen and
freshettes must not common with upper-classmen. Which
reminds the editors of Hitler and his racial purity ideas.
Gentlemen prefer brunettes.
The gentlemen of Arts '38 do
at any rate—Miss Peggy Fox,
dark-haired and sprightly co-ed
who has been seen about from
time to time during the past
three years, was elected by a
alight, but constitutional majority to the post of Junior Prom
Queen, which she accomplished
with charm and aplomb last evening at the Spanish grill.
Brunettes constitute the larger
number among complexion types
on the campus, so Miss Fox's
election doubtless mirrors the
state of mind of a prevailing
number of dark-complected Juniors. At the same time, the Intangible, but considerable Influ-
ence, or appeal, of the blonde and
tho red-haired type is seen in the
large number of votes polled by
flaxen-haired Marjorie Jessup
and tltlan-haired Regis Hicks.
Peggy's brief regal interlude
was comprised of a crowning
ceremony, and the doubtful joy
of exclusive cut-in rights throughout the evening. This privilege,
while charming in its reflection
of the queen's popularity, was
apt to disturb the continuity of
her evening.—J. B.
Film Program
On Today
Today at 12.10 in the Auditor-
lum,  the   Film   Society   presents
"Thunder     Over     Mexico"     and
"Death Days."  The showing is a
special demonstration by  Dunne
and Bundle of the feasabillty of
16 mm. projection equipment for
University use.
Both   films   are   complete   units
from  a  sequence  taken  in  Mexico
under the direction of Sergei Eisen-
steln.   Under   the    sponsorship    of
Upton Sinclair, he went to Mexico
where ho made a large film dealing
with the domination of the  peons
by the Catholic Church.   This large
production   took   twenty   hours   to
show  after it had been edited,  so
was  cut  into   several   smaller  pictures,    of    which    "Thunder    Over
Mexico" and "Death Days" are two,
complete in themselves.
The former film especially has
been the subject of much controversial interest. It was rated four
stars by "Liberty" magazine, but
has not been shown before in British Columbia.
Saskatchewan To
Follow Plan Now
Used At Harvard
Tutorial System Is Aim Set
By Prairie Campus; Fewer
Lectures Planned
sighted plans for a University educational system similar to that of
Harvard are being nurtured by the
University of Saskatchewan, according to Dr. Murray, who has returned from an Eastern trip which
included Harvard's Tercentenary
Celebration. Tutorial Groups, independent Instruction, General Examinations, voluntary attendance of
lectures, Reading Periods, and a reduction in classes, are innovations
to be Installed at Saskatchewan following Harvard's successful . arrangement.
The greatest change will come in
the Tutorial System, the division of
the university into separate colleges. "Saskatchewan and Qu'-Ap-
pelle Halls will be Joined to form
the Women's College. And over by
the old rugby field—as far away
as we can get lt—will be the Men's
College," said Dr. Murray, while
speaking at the Inter-Residence
In these Colleges will be housed
the great majority of the students.
Living among them, acting as
friends and advisors, will be tutors.
These will meet the students either
Individually or in small groups, once
a week, to hear reports on the work
done during the week. The object
will be to have the student do the
work himself under the most careful guidance. The emphasis will
be on the mastery of an important
field of knowledge rather than
treating the course as an end in
Hand In hand with the Tutorial
System,  s   new  plan   of  General
Examinations will   be  Introduced
whereby   the   atudenta   will   only
be ooneernad  with  taata  In their
final year.    Thla enaurea that the
student will treat his oourse aa a
unit, not as separata  parte, aoon
to   be   forgotten   at   the   end   of
each final exam.
If Harvard's customs are closely
patterned, there will be a system of
reading    periods,    voluntary    class
attendance and a reduction in  the
number   of   classes.    The    reading
period is a recess of two or three
weeks before final exams, given to
the   students   for   Intensive   Btudy.
When upperclassmen  have demonstrated  their desire  and ability  to
thoroughly  master a subject,  they
are given  a great deal  more freedom,  even  to  neglecting  their lectures and omitting several of their
classes.    This is done to give them
ample time and opportunity to pre-

the caf. stairs or to any of the following members of the class executive: Mary Covernton, Bunty Butters, Pauline Scott, Albert McDowell, Peter Matheson and Dick Montgomery.
Approximately 200 students, characterized   as   "picture   hungry"   by
Dr.   G.   G.   Sedgewick,   listened   to
Eric   Newton,   Arts   and   Dramatic
Critic   of   the   "Manchester   Guardian" on "How to Read a Picture,"
ln   Arts   100   on   Wednesday.     The
speaker   was   Introduced    by   John
lildington,   university   librarian.
"The main thing In reading pictures,"    stated    Newton,    "la    to
learn  the  visual   language of the
artiat.    Art  ia eaaentlally a communication   between  painter  and
spectator. It dopenda not only on
the artiat'a ability to create,  but
alao   on   the   ability  of  the   spectator to appreciate."
Using   the   analogy   of   radio,   the
speaker showed how the spectator
must   "tune   to   the   wave-length   of
the artist" ln period, technique, and
the influence of race and environment.    An attempt should be made
to see the picture through the eyes
of the artist.
The second part of his lecture
was devoted to the development of
form, as artlstB gradually learned
to integrate the parts of their pictures into a unified whole. A history of the development of diagonal
lines, in breaking away from the
limitations imposed by rectangular
frames was given.
Following this, Mr. Newton spoke
briefly on the influence of materials
on the eventual picture or statue.
The entire lecture was illustrated
by slides, showing a wide range of
subjects, from the work of the early
"primitives" to the Post-Impres-
Dr. G. G. Sedgewick moved a
vote of thanks.
Aggie Profiles
Needed Badly
Two of the sixteen people in your
class have had photographs taken
for the 1937 Totem. If you wish a
class panel of individual pictures to
appear in the Totem, as of the Arts
and Science Junior classes, which
are already made up, you must have
pictures taken before next Wednesday. After then, no pictures whatsoever will be used.
Go to Aber, Medical-Dental building, for pictures. No appointment
is  necessary.
pare themselves for effective tutorial work.
Freshmen will enjoy many ot
these prlvilges since there is too
great a gap between Collegiate and
the University, and they must
learn "to use sensibly the large liberty of college life." However, they
will receive a large degree of individual supervision from faculty
members, proctors, and resident instructors. The flrst aim of the University is to bring the Freshman into the full current of college life.
Undoubtedly all this is a long time
distant, but it Is the goal to which
the  University  has   set its  course.
Business  Includes
Progress on Stadium
Few who elect their members to the highest student
court on the campus, the
Students* Council, realize
what duties they have laid
upon the shoulders of the
elected. Fewer still are ever
let into the secrets of a Council meeting, an event which
takes place every Monday
evening with a boring regularity.
As lt is the fate of the Ubyssey
to be allowed to sit in while the
chosen are deliberating, a few of
the staff members are the only
students on the campus who are
familiar with Council procedure.
The following paragraphs discuss
the meeting held this week, and can
be taken as a fairly good example
of what goes on Monday nights in
the chambers of the mighty.
After   supper,  an  affair  highlighted  by   plenty  of  olives  and
pie a la mode, the boys and girls
head up the stairs for the serious
work of the evening.    Let it be
said here that the tone of a Council   meeting   is   seldom   serious,
even though matters of great import are before the group. Nevertheless,  the  councillors  are   sincere, a far more important consideration.
The meeting opened Monday with
the reading of the minutes, by Beth
Evans  as  Kay   Scott  had  the  'flu.
Jay kept trying to snatch a bottle
of milk belonging to the secretary
pro tern, and the minutes suffered
a   few   interruptions.    They   were
passed with dispatch.
Correspondence Included a letter
from John Wltbeck, who sat and
sneered while Beth read it. John
had been sick, so the Council hatf
sent him some reading matter. He
was thanking them, and for some
reason included the pleading question,  "Whose baby am  I?"
The mail bag  also included  a
notification that some of the girls
on the campus were going to hold
an  archery   shoot  with  Western
University, the scores to be sent
back and forth by wire. Wltbeck
again  rose  to the   occasion   and
advocated    a   telegraphic   chess
tournament with Harvard.
The   phone   rang,   and   was   answered by Vine.   The call was for
Gould, but Vine held the phone a
minute and informed the room, and

Forum To Debate
On China
Contest Will Be Held
In Arts 100 Tuesday
"Resolved that further intervention In China by Japan would be
beneficial to China," will be the
topic of debate of the Parliamentary Forum's regular forsenic battle to be held Tuesday, February 2,
at 12.15, in Arts 100.
The  affirmative  will  be  taken
by Bernard Reed, while Maurice
Belkln will defend the negative.
Belkin recently won an oratorical
contest in California and has the
reputation for being a very fluent
and capable speaker.
Neither speaker has led a Forum
debate so far, but both have spoken
frequently at the meetings.
Parliamentary Forum officials,
elated at the success of the professional debate of January 12,
have promised to sponsor another
in the. near future, in which two
equally well known members of the
Faculty will flght to the bitter end.
"Oh    Promise    Me"   Thst   You'll
Take   Me to   Robin   Hood.
"There ls nothing approaching an
epidemic   on   this   campus,"   stated
Mrs.   Lucas,   Director   of   the   University Health Service, when questioned yesterday by the Ubyssey.
"There    have    not   been    more
than 16 properly diagnosed cases
of   Influenza   to   date,"   ahe   explained.    "Thero may have been
a few othara whieh have not been
oertlfled   by  doctoro*   report,   but
the   majority   of   people   abssnt
from the university sre suffering
from severe oolds."
"There have been quite a number
of   people   coming   into   the   office
after  two  days'  absence  to  report
Influenza," Mrs. Lucas told the reporter,  "but this cannot be called
genuine 'flu.'    The university ls ln
a   very  healthy  condition  for  this
time of the year," she said, "but lt
Is advisable that If any symptoms
are present, students take the precautionary measure of remaining at
home for a day or two, thus checking any  incipient Illness."
Council Acts To
Return Mike
In answer to many student
requests for some action on
the matter of a public address
system, Student s* Council
moved Monday evening to reopen negotiations with the
downtown Arm who originally
installed the temporary set
that was taken out last
The graduating class of 1935, donated a sum for the installation of
a public address system, a sum believed to be in the nature of $300.
A contract was entered into with
a downtown retailer, who agreed to
supply equipment as specified in
the contract.
Suoh   equipment   was   not   on
hsnd st tho moment, ths retailer
admitted, but he promlaad to fur-
nlah  a temporary est  until suoh
time ss he was able to bring the
right   outfit  from   the   east.     Although It was* posslbls that proper   equipment   was   on   hand   at
other Vanoouver stores, the eon-
trsot  wss  signed  with   ths   msn
mentioned above and the temporary aet inatalled.
The   situation   at   present  ia  not
much  changed,  with the electrical
retailer unable to fulfill his obligation under the contract and the A.
M. S. refusing to pay him any more
cash.    It is possible that an attempt
will be made to reclaim the money
already   paid.
In the meantime, there ls a rumor about the campus that the
Film Society intends to have sound
projection equipment Installed in
the auditorium. Such equipment is
easily adaptable for public speaking use, and could be so used at
little  extra  cost.
Whatever course ls taken, it is
certain that some type of public
address system will be back ln the
auditorium soon. Many organisations, Including the Musical Society,
the Pep Club and the University
itself, would benefit by the move.

Thompson Is Cast
As Romantic Lead
Callum Thompson of the cast of
"Robin Hood," needs no introduction to B. C. music lovers. His musical career has been replete with
successes. He first gained prominence as a Musical Festival winner.
Since that time he has been a concert recltaliat and a tenor soloist
in several choirs, notably the Bach
Mr. Thompson has had previous
experience in operatic leads. University audiences will remember
his sterling performance as Nankl
Poo in the "Mikado."
In this year's presentation ot the
de Koven's operetta, "Robin Hood"
by the University Musical Society,
he will sing the romantic lead as
the doughty robber chieftain, Robin Hood. His performance will be
one of the many highlights of the

This year we seem to have devoted a lot of editorial
space to congratulating various campus organizations on
various successful projects. In keeping with this tradition
we cannot refrain from presenting to the Junior class executive the very finest bunch of orchids procurable for making
such a superb Job of the Junior Prom.
Malcolm Brown deserves especial congratulations. He
has managed to produce a class party that was a sell-out.
To do that, he needed organizing and executive ability as
well as a capacity for hard work.
Remembering that lt is only a month and a half till the
A.M.S. elections, we would like to suggest that good council
members need just that sort of push that managed to put
the Junior Prom over.

tho unknown caller, that "it aure
was a honey of a voice, oh, boy!"
Gould took over and was heard to
say that "he had no words to ex
press his contempt for a date bur
eau." The caller was a reporter
who had been pestering the Council
all day about the same matter.
Her answer from Dave Carey was
sweet and to the point: "What
would the Thetas do If we had a
date bureau?" he asked.
Somebody mentioned Mr. Home,
and was told that he waa home 111.
"What did we send him?" queried
one of the girls.
"Gone With tho Wind," answered
Vine. He was right, but the answer
brought forth a smile from Gould,
who usually sits at the head of the
table and regards the scene in front
of him with just the proper degree
of boredom.
Tho Ubyssey feature, "Mary
Anne," oame into the discussion,
but was passed over. "Not our field
of authority," stated Gould, with an
"oft* the record" rider that the column did not harm a soul.
"I read it with a good deal of
interest," commented Logan.
In case the above seems to indicate that Council pays no attention
to real work, it is only fair to say
that little of it was crying to be
attended to last Monday. It is the
procedure for each member of
Council to bring forth business that
falls under his department. Often,
their deliberations will hold them
until near midnight.
Constructive business accomplished Monday included:
An hour-long conference with the
Stadium architect, and a general
discussion of proposed plans.
An instruction from Gould to
Witbeck to see that the mystery
clouding the Public Address system
was cleared at once, and that definite steps be taken.

Condemnation of the tactics of
the journalistic world have been
found, of late, in rather a strange
source. Smooth American magazine
sophisticate, the "New Yorker," in
its column, The Talk of the Town,
has some words to say concerning
the modern news version of the old
classic phrase, "tetnpus fugit."
"Time," as the voice says, marches on. Whether time, if lt were
prodded less by the breathless
school of broadcasting, would march
on or just mooch along Is a fair
question. It seems to us that time
used to enjoy a more shuffling gait

Random Ramblings
Prof. Joseph B. Harrison, ot the
University of Washington, has
aroused const derable discussion
among certain campus circles with
his comments on the Oxford institution of "slacking," which were reprinted in the "Ubyssey" some ten
days ago.
It has beeu pointed out that almost every great figure ln English
culture was a "slacker" during his
undergraduate days, preferring, as
John Locke expressed lt, "the company of pleasant m_n" to their
studies. The same is true of many
famous non-university men. How
much did Shakespeare owe to his
friends in the taverns of Eastcheap,
or Steele and Addison to their acquaintances ln London coffee
houses? A former Oerman teacher
of mine, a Heidelberg graduate, insists that the greatest contributions
to European culture since the Renaissance came from Oerman beer
gardens and Paris boulevard cafes.

where we can meditate and discuss
the facts we receive. What our
educational system needs ls a new
non-alcoholic beer. Imagine a picturesque non-alcoholic beer garden
down on Marine Drive behind the
Auditorium, where young hopefuls
could sit ln earnest attentive groups,
passionately arguing over the merits of the hexameter, or discussing
Freud or Surrealism. It might even
result In  another Renaissance.

Alberta Chooses
"Dangerous Corners"
Edmonton, Jan. 26 (W.I.P.U.) —
University of Alberta Thespians
have once again donned the shining %armor and mounted their gallant steeds, all ready for the Spring
Play. Choosing as the vehicle for
their 1837 play, J. B. Priestley's
"Dangerous Corners," the Dramatic
Society is assured of a success.
The play is a mystery drama enacted in the upper social stratum ot
present-day London. The plot centres around a dead man who exerted a powerful influence over the
characters in the play. Only seven
characters are called for in the
play, all ot whom have Important
parts to till.
The players will start their practices now, and will go into production early in March. Last year the
Dramatic Society put on "The Wind
and the Rain" as their Spring Play
production. This play was an outstanding success.

Dear Madam:
Far be it from me to advocate
the muzzling of the press, but
there comes a time when empty-
headed columnists should have
their vacuous ravings at least
censored. It is all very well, I
know they are seldom read, but
—it's the once or twice that does
the damage. For Instance, ln
French 2 there has been a sudden outbreak of oral atrocities;
perspiring students are chosen
unceremoniously and led protesting feebly to the front of the
class where they are subjected to
all manner of indignities. This
menace is directly attributable to
our "friend," Darby. Will you
kindly be more considerate in
Orey fedora hat, in Arts 100, the
night ot Dr. Mclnnes' leoture at tho
Vanoouver Institute. Please bring
any Information connected with this
to  the "Ubyssey" office.
Discussing three of the earlier
schools of music, and illustrating
with examples of their work, Allard
de Ridder delivered another ln his
series of lectures on muslo, Wednesday afternoon ln the Auditorium.
The old English, Netherlands and
Italian Schools, ln evidence roughly
during the fifteenth and sixteenth
centuries, were dwelt upon by Mr.
de Ridder, who sketched the lives
of their chief members.
He also pointed out the Interrelation of the Schools and the Influence each had on the other, resulting ln a similarity in style ot
some of the leading composers of
the period. Thus, both Handel and
Bach were affected by some of their
contemporaries. Although the initial work was done in England and
the Netherlands, the members of
these two schools travelled to Germany and especially to Italy, where
the form and style were further developed.
Although the music of this period ls little known nowadays, Mr.
de Ridder commented on its finish
and expression, which are remarkably close to modern sentiment.
The Muslosl Sooiety quartet
whioh aupportod Mr. de Ridder,
waa eapeolally complimented by
him for an Intsrsst and enthusiasm In polyphonic chureh muslo,
whieh made him desirous of continuing his work with ths Varsity

Sleighing accidents took their

Victoria, flrst year Arts, received a
dislocated hip.
Together with other students, she

was thrown from the sled, suffering a dislocated hip together with
other minor injuries. She will be

The overwhelming enthusiasm for

In fact, the enthusiasm ran out
the door with such overwhelming

student self-expression and occasioned none too mute comments on

Prof. King Oordon in his leoture
Tuesday noon, "Behind the Head*
lines," stated that the international
pattern is entering an era of planned political economy.
Three characteristics of the present-day situation tend to make this
view of a system of planned economy more oertaln are, the breakdown of the collective security system, tbe emergence of a new political factor—the Fascist state, and
the Increasing stability ot the
Soviet Union.
The speaker supported his views
with illustrations drawn trom his
acquaintance of aotlons adopted by
the League of Nations, which he
stated had been "built on Idealistic
and democratic ideas," in former
"Out of 20 states, IB are Fascist
or nearly Fascist. This type of government represents the destruction
of tbe will for peace in that nation.
The dictators use it to gain political
power and not to maintain international peace," he stated.
"The greatness of the Soviet
Union is undlsputable," ho continued, "and lt is probably the strongest military nation ln the world.
The group who understands the social and politically planned system
will be those who will head the future International scheme," he concluded.

Dear Madame:
Elxlsts there a "U" so lifeless
and dead? I wonder. Last week
our Students Council spent $100
to bring to the campus the debaters from Bdmonton. They en-
Joyed the trip out, the visit to our
campus, etc., and seemed very
favorably Impressed. And then
came tho night of tbe debate I
Under the circumstances they did
marvellously, but who can do
their best before an audience ot
less than 60? Exclusive ot judges,
reporters, and the personal
friends of the debaters, there
were 19 people present—by actual count of one ot tbe visiting
debaters. They were half beaten
before the debate started because
our speakers were prepared tor
this and practically expected it.
This University Is not 26 years
old and already it has one foot
ln the grave, and goodness knows
how long we'll be able to keep
the other out as far as student
activities got
In Alberta they advertise their
debates. An advertisement is
placed ln each downtown paper
and signs are put up on telephone
poles, etc, ln strategio centres ot
the city.   It may not be dignified
enough tor Varsity  students  at
U. B. O. but lt brings results.
It would certainly have been
better to have made the debato
last Friday free to the students
and had a orowd, thus giving tha
speakers a fair chanoe, than to
change an admission and — get
empty seats.

Harmer and Taylor Lead Ice Squad Against Huskies
This matter may have no place in
a sports column, but nevertheless I
think somebody ahould have something to say about the downright
bad manners of several members of
the student body at the pep meeting on Wednesday.
A certain amount of horseplay on
the part of a few of the younger
members of a university audience
is understandable and perhaps ex-
cusible. But there is such a thing
as carrying it too far.
Perhaps the "gentleman" who
sat in the front row of the balcony
Wednesday will keep this in mind
in future.
The days of vigilantes are over,
but there are times when a similar
organisation on this campus could
do a lot of good.
The Big Block Club?
A few people have been asking
what happened to Archie Byers*
proposed mid-winter swim.
Here's the inside story:
It seems that when Archie said
he would make his cold experiment he asked for only three
things In return—an automobile,
a camera (as proof) and a bottle
of over proof rum. Items one and
two were easily obtained, but
somehow the bottle of rum was
not easily  forthcoming.
So Archie kept his clothes on.
That waa three weeks ago, and
to date the problem of the rum
has not been solved.
The line forms at the right.
Henderson receives more publicity about his scholastic standing
than his basketball playing . . . ap
Roberts claims the record for the
number of times his name is misspelled . . . what happened to the
inter-fraternity bowling league last
year? . . . Soccer seems to have
reached a new low this year .  . .

Thus spoke Qordon (Gus) Mathias, efficient coach of
Varsity's hockey team, on the game with the University of
Washington Huskies set for Saturday night at 8, in the
not Saturday as elsewhere Indicated.
Comes tonight the flrst game of
the annual hockey series between
the University of Washington and
the University of B. C. The Thunderbirds have tMs year an aggregation of puckchasers that could take
on and defeat any amateur team In
the city. Included thia year on the
line-up are Ave players from the
prairies and several more from the
interior of B. C, with the result
that all the members have been
practically brought up on skates.
Heeding Coach Mathias' plea to
get in shape, Goalie Hugh Shirref
and Forward Chas. Guiget journeyed to the gym and decided to
do a little wrestling. The result was
a terrific bend in the neck for Shirref and a wrecked vertebrae for
Gluget. Instead of being in shape
they are now in all kinds of shapes
trying to move with the least pos
slble pain.
Clarence Taylor, chief scoring
threat for the Birds, is a real
hockey player, but in the matter of
dressing himself his ability ranks
with that of a three-cornered pant-
er. After a strenuous workout at
the gym he proceeded to put his
vest on backwards and he couldn't
understand what was wrong with It
So all paths lead to the Forum
tonight where there will be given
a sclntllatlng performance of Canada's national pastime replete with
all the spills and thrills that have
made It the fastest game in the
Livingston, golf prexy, claims that

moose . . . Maury Van Vliet is the
unofficial "Chink Champ" of Varsity, after defeating three members
of the inter-A basketball team,
Deserving of praise this year
Is the hockey club for the fine
spirit they have shown In arranging the present series of games
with Washington. Let us hope
they have more luck this year
than they did last, when they lost
(after travelling all the way to
Seattle) only because their regular goalie was unable to play.
With snow and Ice still on the
grounds, thoughts of spring are
still removed from our minds . . .
but perhaps it is not too early to
remind the Greeks of their annual softball tournament. . . . Last
year it was quite late in the term
before they remembered It.
You never can tell how far an
idea will develop. At the Council
meeting on Monday night John
Wltbeck, after hearing of the
Archery by wire competition,
suggested a chess by wire tournament with Harvard.
"Oh    Promise    Me"   That    You'll
Take  Me to  Robin  Hood.
Taylor (Clarence—"Big Block"
—Taylor), aided by Jim Ussher
and Paul Trussell, forwards, will
give the team Its speed and organisation,  Jim   Harmer,   Angle
Provensano, and Jack Stevenson
will     contribute    stability     and
steadiness.  And to top that—this
year the team has a goalkeeper
—a real goalkeeper.   He's Brob-
dlgnaglan Hugh Shirreff, of Alberta, a veteran netminder who
has been playing for a Westminster team all year, and is assuredly In prime condition.
Also from the Prairies have come
the   Brothers   Guiget,   Marcel   and
Charles. Both these boys are fast—
veritable "Flying Frenchmen," yet
they use their heads, playing with
coolness and intelligence.
And then there are the reliables
of the team of last year—Framp
Price, Maury I ambert and Frank
Perry, all of whom play in forward
positions. That completes the roster of players who will take the ice
on Friday night against their perennial enemies—the Huskies of
Washington. Although no definite
information has been divulged as
regards the merits of the Washing-
tonians, it is rumored that their
team is weaker than that of last
year. Even at that, their squad will
be a strong one with their efficient
coaching  and  training facilities.
"If we can prevent them going
on a scoring spree in the flrst few
minutes of the game, as was the
case last year, I think we will be
able   to   hold   them   down,"   said
Coach Gordie Mathias yesterday.
"Another big factor in the game
will be the goal keeping," he continued.   "We are putting a lot of
faith in Shirreff, as last year we
consider that we lost the game In
the net."
From all indications, Goalie Shirreff  will   justify   all   hopes   put   in
him.   In case of injury to Shirreff,
a substitute goalie in the person of
Jack Warne will be on hand. Warne
plays in the net in the local Junior
Tickets for the match will be on
sale in the quad and can be obtained
from any of the fore-mentioned

by Bruins vs. Cubs tilt—the double-
header starting at 8 o'clock.

Adanacs in Wednesday night's Intercity hoop fixture to take over
top spot in the loop standings. The
win puts the Thunderbird squad
two points ahead of Province, who,
however, have four games left to
play  while  Varsity  has  only two.
Holding a definite edge throughout the game, the students' fast
breaks and smooth plays kept them
well out in front all the way.
Chiefly due to Henderson's sharp-
shooting, the Thunderbirds quickly
opened up a substantial lead which
they held without difficulty to end
the period six points to the good,
After the breather, the  students
continued their winning ways, stepping away from the yellow-shirts to
win  easily.
Wednaaday'a game saw the return of Ed Armatrong to tha basketball fold. Ed, as some of the
octogenarians In the fourth and
fifth year will remember, played
for Province when they won the
Dominion ehamplonahlp in 1934.
Handeraon led the aeorlng with
12 points, followed by Wllloughby with 11.

Sports Editor.
Late Wednesday afternoon the
Faculty of the University of B. C.
decided that the matter ot the proposed trip to Berkeley by the rugby
club was permissible as far as they
were concerned and left the whole
thing up to the team. However,
they left the boys with quite a problem. A guarantee ot 91400 is necessary before the trip can be made
and it ia somewhat doubtful if the
University of California can raise
this sum. Also, as the trip would
take place some time next month
and last about ten days, the U.B.C.
men would miss a good portion ot
valuable pre-exam pepping. Nothing is definite as yet, but the boys
are hopeful of being able to make
the  American  trip.
