VARSITY'S CICEROES
LOSE TWO DEBATES
TO PRAIRIE MEN
Before the largest audience that has
witnessed an intercollegiate debate
within the last three years, Winston
Nainby and George Britnell ot Saskatchewan University defeated Denis
Murphy and Orevllle Rowland ot U.B.
C. in the Auditorium of King Bdwunl
High School on Friday night.
The decision was two to one ln favor
of the visitors who, in upholding the
negative of "Resolved that commercial
Imperialism 1b a perpetual menace to
International peace," won the debate
by thetr cleverness in argument and
the common-sense of their material,
although Mr. Denis Murphy and Orevllle Rowland staunchly upheld the
honour of the U.B.C. The debate was
keenly contested throughout, and the
close discussion manifests the even-
nesB of the opposing forces.
Messrs. A. McAlptne, Leonard Miller, and D. W. MacDonald were the
judges, and Mr. Leslie Brown was
in the chair.
With a pleasing and quiet method of
delivery, Orevllle Rowland opened the
case for the affirmative. His main
thesis was that commercial imperialism found expression In the Investment of capital abroad by governments and private persons. This practise, he contested, created friction between rival imperialist nations and
betweon the exploiting and exploited
nations. He cited the economic partitions of Persia, Africa and China as
proof of this.
Mr. Winston Nainby opened the
case for the negative. He put forth
a clear and straightforward argument,
and spoke; as the previous speaker, in
a quiet and convincing manner. He
contended that commercial Imperialism was a factor ln the preservation
of peace. Thus trade and commerce,
economic unions, and the economic
dependence of nations upon each other
all fostered International accord. As
examples he took the pacification of
India by England and of Africa by
the European powers.
Mr. Denis Murphy by a forceful
and persuasive delivery made an eloquent speech and received an ovation
when be concluded. He reviewed the
wars of the last eighty years and declared that commercial Imperialism
was the origin of armament races,
military alliances, secret diplomacy,
and International fear, which were the
chief causes of these wars. If another
World War breaks out history will
record that Western civilization was
"weighed in the balance and found
wanting."
After a witty Introduction Mr. George
Britnell proceeded to build up a very
strong case which the afflmative failed to destroy ln rebuttal. Mr. Britnell
also took up the wars that had occurred within the last eighty years and
stated that nationalism and a desire
for territorial expansion wero the
chief causes for them rather than
economic imperialism. Thus the Great
War, the Russian-Japanese war, and
the Boer War were so caused. Trade
knows no flag and recognises no
boundaries, binds nations together.
Commercial Imperialism pre-supposes
peace.
Rebuttals were lively and Interesting. Mr. Nainby led off stating that
his opponents had confused political
imperialism and commercial exploitation with commercial Imperialism. Mr.
Rowland said that England dominated
India for an economic purpose and
India would soon become a menace to
peuce. Mr. Britnell affirmed that the
U.S. was merely policing Central
Central America for the good of those
countries and without an ulterior motive. Mr. Denis Murphy made a warm
rebuttal declaring that nationalism
wbh fostered hy Imperialism, that
polltlcol and economic domination
created war.
In the away debate against the I'niverslty of Munltoba, David Wuilllnger
and William Masterson were defeated
by a unanimous decision,
NOTICE!
International debaters are asked to
attend a meeting on Wednesday noon
In Arts 100 to discuss the formation
of a Debating Union. Prof. Angus will
give his opinions on the question.
Philosophers Hear
Prof. J. Henderson
Professor James Henderson, of Ihe
University of British Columbia, addressed a large gathering of members,
at a meeting of Ihe Philosophy Club,
held at the home of Dr. J. 1). Wymun,
on Thursday last. Tlie subject of Mr
Henderson's lecture was: "What Is
Philosophy?"
The speaker tlrst estimated briefly
the trend of Philosophy. Members of
thu Club, he suld, should he congratulated for the part they are playing in
furthering the new tide of Interest
being shown for Philosophy. The organization, he continued, is but tho
sign of the times—the practical expression of a re-animated study.
Philosophy, once the dominating art
of the Ancients, became a "game for
professors." In more modern times, a
gradual revival ot interest gave it an
increasing popularity. The ability of
the organizers of the Philosophy Club
to Interpret the present position of
Philosophy Is then commendable,"
said Professor Henderson; "for the
modern trend makes a Philosophy So
clety, here, a necessity."
Continuing with his subject. Mr.
Henderson pointed out that tt has always been felt that Philosophy was a
high, ethereal study. Plato, In his
"Republic," believed that only true
philosophers should be made rulers of
the people, and In defining Philosophy,
said that it was "the feeling of wonder."
"Philosophy," Professor Henderson
said/ "doveloped slowly and 'simply.'
Its Inception may be traced to that
point when men found themselves
troubled with such questions as,—
;What Is reality'?"
THE  RELATION OF PHILOSOPHY
AND 8CIENCE
The speaker next turned to a principle division of his subject; namely,
that of the relation of Science and
Philosophy. "Philosophy," he said,
"seeks to examine the WHOLE."
Science, on the other hand, studies.
not the WHOLE, but aspects of It.
It Is Interested In abstract PARTS.
The Science, though they attempt to
deal with reijllty, seem only to study
aspects of the question.
Here the Professor referred to the
well-known question of Evolution.
"Scientists, he said, "tell us that there
was a time when the Universe began
and that the present situation of the
Universe has co.ue by a process ol
evolution. Philosophy must accept this
an an assumption. Hut, as an examiu
at Ion of the WIIOI.l'I Philosophy tluils
Itself confronted with these questions:
"Why should we argue from the
simple to the complex'.'"
"Is it not possible the process has
been in the other direction?''
"Can there bo a beginning? If so,
what was there before the beginning?"
THE   ROLE  OF  PHILOSOPHY
Leaving his audience with these
consideration^, Mr. Henderson, brought
his paper to a close, emphasizing in
conclusion, that whatever the real
principle of the Universe may be, we
must seek an explanation by that
which is hlghost. Philosophy, it hus
always been felt, holds this high position; for, unlike all else, it strives to
perceive the WHOLE.

SENIOR "A" CAGERS
BEAT DUFFUS GIRLS
Taking the lend from the very he
ginning of the game, the Varsity
women's Senior ,\ basketball team
defeateil the Duffus, II. ('. Commercials, 26-7 in the Normal gym. on
Saturday evening,
The Varsity fans had every reason
to be proud of their crew when they
watched the splendid team-work and
neat pivoting of the women.
From the \ery flrst Jump at centre,
Varsity obtained the ball, and after
a clever pass, the flrst basket was
netted. At the end of the first
quarter the score stood 5-2 in favour
of  the  university.
In the second quarter, Varsity began a series of whirlwind plays which
left the Duffus women breathless,
and by this means, the score travelled quickly upwards to 19-4 at half-
time.
During tho third quarter, the Commercials played on the defensive to
try to prevent the Varsity women
from scoring, but Varsity managed
to break through their guard and as
the whistle blew at the end of the
period,  the  score  stood  21-5.
Both teams succeeded In netting
only one basket In the last quarter,
which resulted in the final score being 2ti-7.
The Duffus, or as they were formally known, "The Young Liberal
Canucks," winners of last year's
championship, have now won ono
game  and  lost  one  to  Varsity.
Spectators commented on the improvement in the Varsity passing,
and also on the fact that the team
has realized that the Duffus have to
he checked from the centre, as the
latter depend on their long shots.
The success of the team is due
primarily to the untiring efforts of
Arnold Henderson, whose Invaluable
coaching has resulted ln such efficient
team-work.

ARTS GAME
Weakened by the loss of Dicky
Bright due to injuries received last
week and playing two men short, the
"Collar Ad" Brigade went down to
defeat by 14-0 before tho King Edward
Old Boys who were fielding perhaps
their strongest team this season. In
the first half King Edward failed to
register more than three points.
Arts fought back hard tn the
second half but the game was loose
and numbers were beginning to tell.
Considering even this, the team was
not like that which opposed the
Rowing Club the week previous. Both
games Indicate lack of condition since
the winning scores were rung up in
the second periods.
The team: Mclnnes, Smith, Richardson, Chapelle, McNeil, Bull, Noble,
Wilson, Phillips, Player, Mason,
Farrls, Grauer.
Course Changed
by Track Club
Particulars of the Cross Country
Race have been decided by Ihe Track
Club. This event was started last year
by Carl Barton, Educntion '27's star
runner. It was decided at this meeting lo chunge the course slightly so
lluit spectators could watch a greater
portion of the race.
This race Is run as a class event.
The scoring Is as follows: First, 20
points; second, 19 points; and so on,
the 21st man In, making no points
whatever. A small map of the course
will be published in the Issue of the
27th. Unfortunately It has been impossible to obtain a trophy I'or the
event Bill Selby was last year's winner, and has great hopes of repeating
this year, but he will have some very
good men out to leave him in their
dust.
ART8   '20   RELAY
Varsity's one classic Track Event,
the Arts '2o Relay, will be run on the
afternoon of the Women's Leap Year
Ball. Great interest is being shown in
Ibis event; already men and Freshmen
are io be seen running sedately, indifferently, or madly up and down back
alleys and along the less-frequented
streets long alter they should all be
soundly asleep In their liille beds.
Speculation as to who will win has
not as yet been very great, but it ,s
rumoured ihat the class ol '31 will

not been definitely settled yet, but It

SCIENCE GAME
Another historic event came to a
climax Saturday afternoon, when the
unbeaten Science squad took the
notorious Firemen into -camp to the
tune of 11 to 6. Meanwhile the Arts
team lost to the Mount Pleasant
"Fathers" 14-0.
Taking the toss Varsity bid to pick
north and play commenced in mid-
field. The bollermakers were holding
the much heavier fire-eaters well In
check in the scrum. Several members of the Firemen's pack were
barely able to see their feet. However, the old theory that the bigger
they are the harder the fall was
demonstrated and proved correct
several times during the afternoon's
performance.
Following a scrum the three line
secured the ball and "Blondy"
Oustafson avoided several of the opposition to set the ball down well
under the posts. Farrlngton's ponderous shanks turned the trick and
the second score stood 6-0 In favor
of the bowler hat "gentlemen-'
The hosemen kicked off, play returned to centre field and then
stopped while they carried off the
first "crock." This did not deter the
hook and ladder boys from going
across for their premier which was
unconverted. In the next play Firemen pressed and looked dangerous
while Science fought on their own
line.
Tho pack worked like Trojans and
on u line-out Firemen secured the
ball but the attack was thwarted
when P. Barratt brought down the
opposition ln a fine tackle. Bill Locke
kicked for touch and play went to
centre field. Ou a fumble Firemen
again pressed and a life-saver slid
over 0:1 a new type of angleworm
glide. The half ended 6-5 with the
black sweatered mob leading.
Filled with the stimulus of hard
citrus juice the Scientists showed
improvement in the second half by
starting off with a bang. However,
Firemen seemed so determined that
play stayed in centre field. The Blue
and Gold were getting an even break
in the scrums and nice three quarter
runs resulted. Estabrook was showing some of his old time speed to go
through the opposition. Gustafson
was taking his pass with better
precision than for some weeks Fell
was getting the ball regularly on the
wing and although showing plenty of
speed he should try and get his head
down and run closer to the ground.
Firemen again smashed through
but were stopped when Gordie Logan
took a hard tackle about 26 yards
out. Bill Locke relieved to centre
field and play went to the opposition's home area. Following a little
argument after a line out "Mug
cracker" Sinclair picked the ball up
from the loose and went over for
three more points. Farrlngton missed
the convert from a bad anglo.
The next feature came when
Gustafson picked the leather up from
the loose, passed out to Locke who
made a nice swerve and yards. Fell
took the repass and looked good for
a tug but was held up on the line.
The Smoke-eaters relieved and the
game went to mid-field. This did not
deter the scientific aggregation
who came right back In a pretty
three run. Receiving the leather
from a scrimmage Estabrook, going
straight and hard, passed out to
"Blondy" who averted two heavyweights to pass to "Shiner" Tupper.
Bert took the ball over the line like
a bullet. The extra points were not
added.
Again the black-shirts pressed forward and on a long punt the mixed
play looked good for a try until
Logan brought the opposition down
In a fine tackle and the Firemen
packed another "crock" away The
game continued lu Firemen's own
two-bit area and ended with the Blue
and Gold on the verge of another
attack to the tune of "Hall the Conquering Hero Comes" by the "Hook
and  Ladder" syncopators.

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
We notice in I/ihI Sunday's Province ti letter, presnmnM*,' from
an irate parent, eoNilcinnintf the University iiiillmrilies for 1 lit*
number of fnilurc-H i\t Christmas. Aiming u number of oilier inn*'
eurncicH the writer makes Hie statement that those who do not
make lixty pot* cent, are asked to withdraw, The writer of lliis
lottor has been misinformed. The standard has this year been
lowered to some extent, candidates being- now required tn make
only 40 per cent, instead of the usual 44.
Another piece of misinformation which the letter contains is
that studentH aro asked to withdraw because of overcrowding. While
it is true* that wo are rapidly becoming overcrowded here, it is not
true that any students are asked to withdraw for that reason. The
only cause for withdrawal is failure to attain the standard demanded
by the University.
That those standards are not too high is provided by the number who can and do succeed. To lower them would be to lower
the efficiency of the University. It would, moreover, be an, injustice
to the tax-payer who supports the University to burden it with
people who are unable to keep up to tho now-prevailing standard.
We quote the following statement by Morton Snyder. "The
selection of those who shall be admitted to tho privilege of a fine
education at much less than cost is fundamentally a study in social
justice. It involves the rights of faculty members who are investing their own lives in the next generation, the rights of generous
philanthropists and hard-working tax-payers, the rights of those
who will finish as well as those who will withdraw."
Lit. Head Gives Debates Plan
With the proposed passim; ol the Literary and Scientific Deptartment, and
the recent Saskatchewan debate, the
time is ripe to Investigate thoroughly
the question of debating at the University of British Columbia.
At present, the feeling is that do
bating haa fallen on evil times, and
that complete reorganization Is necessary. Obviously, however, no blame
can be attached to any one person,
as those In authority have been working against tremendous inertia.
It Is unnecessary to repeat at length
the varied criticisms leveled against
the system of debates now in existence. At present there Is a distinct
hiatus between the Debates Council
and the Literary and Debating Society. The former is a part of the L
S. D. and is practically a non-existani
body. The actual work is done by the
Debates Manager, who conducts tin
correspondence between the U. II. C.
and other colleges. Tryouts are held
at the beginning of each college year,
at which about ten star debaters are
chosen for Ihe inter-colleglate contests. The other debaters are left
strictly alone for the rest of the year,
without any couching, criticism or en
couragenient.
The Literary Society, on the oilier
hand, affords an opportunity for any
student In the I'niversily lo take part
in debating. It. trains its members in
public speaking by means of the Students' Parliament, and in addition conducts the lnter-class Debates, the Victoria and High Schools Debates, and
the annual oratorical contest. It has
scarcely any say, however, in intercollegiate debating.
In reorganizing debating In this University, although a Utopian objective
must be kept in mind, the questions
of student apathy and the finance situation must be considered These two
problems may prevent any rapid and
complete change of Ihe debating organization for some time.
ln putting forward the following
proposals, I must acknowledge my Indebtedness to Mr. Orevllle Rowland,
the Debates Manager, and lo Mr. Wll
Ham Taylor, I'or many details of the
scheme.
The flrst detail to be attended to Is
the coordination of the various student organisations inleresled in pub
lie speaking. This has been the weak
point of past schemes,
First, there should be a body known
ns the Debutes Advisory Mould, which
would consist of members of the fac
ulty, Alumni, and citizens interested In
debating. This body would supply
Judges and critics, and help Hie sin
dent body In all forms of debating.
In addition there should be one or
more debates COill'lies, either volun
tary or paid, Ihat will listen to nil eon
teHinnis nnd tell each one, Indlvldii
ally, exactly what his or her particular faults un-. This Is nol done at
present A lew "tlpH" and "corree-
J Inns" will launch many speaker* on a.
forensic  career   who,  under   the  pres
out
ent system are "squashed" at thi
set.
The actual fountain-head of authority for the Forensic Department
should be the Students' Council. Debating should eventually have a representative on the Council, In exactly the same way as Athletics Is represented now. For the present, however, debates should be discussed by
Council, with the President of the
(proposed) Forensic Department attending in a non-voting capacity.
The governing body of debating ac-
ilvlty should be a Debates or Forensic
Council, consisting in representatives
of all campus organizations Interested
in public speaking and debating. This
Council should consist of the President (a man) and the Vice-President
(a woman) of the Literary and Debuting Society, the President of the
Agriculture Discussion Club, representatives of Science and Theological debating societies, and the Premier ami
Speaker of an (independent) Students'
Parliament. In addition there snoiihl
be a President of th,. Debates Council elected  by  the  Students'   Hody
The actual business of tlie debates
should be done by a Debates Secretary (I'or the correspondence ), a Tiva
surer (lui the finances). a Publicity
.Manager (for publicity), and assistants These ollleers should be ap
pointed by the Debates Council and
responsible  to it.
All societies would be Independent,
or rather interdependent, and carry
on their functions In a manner resembling that at present Ui force. Debate try-outs, however, should be more
frequent, and the contestants classified into (a) Intercollegiate Special;
(b) Intercollegiate Oeneral; (c) Kx
tra Mural (Vancouver Debating
League, etc.); (ill lnter-class; and (e)
Beginners. Awards should follow the
lines of athletic "letters," with an enamel pin* for "A" class debaters, gold
for "B" class, sliver for "C" class and
bronze for "D" class. The grading of
debates would follow the above system.
All debates should be thoronghlv
discussed and criticized by competent
authorities. Frequent practice shorn.'
be given to Inter-colleglate teams, by
putting them against other V II ('.
debaters
Above all. reference books, material
and ilebuie iiianiisci ips should be care
fully tiled and card Indexed for luiiire
reference Thus ii great waving :>('

whenever     subjects     previously     used

That sounds unbelievable, it it
admitted, yet it is more than
true. It is made by a famous old-
country house. The leather is
the best and it is hand-sewn.
The reason for the low price is
that, while the regulation size
for all Canadian official games,
this ball is smaller than the one
generally used. $10.00 value

do my essay bill did nut have time.
I'll do It  tomorrow.
Tuesday, 17th.
It's iimii.s no one has Invited me to
lluil Leap Year Dance yet, I guess
Ihey all must think I've been asked
ahi-aiiv Hul when Ihey find out ()
Boy!
Some of those uncouth Sclencenien
ciune around the Arts Building looking for trouble. A fight started but I
did not go Into It us I didn't want lo
rumple my clothes. After lt wus over
I got a piece of red sweater to weur on
my lapel. It. will serve as a warning
to the Sclencomen and show them that
we Artsmen are not to be trifled with.
Besides, red suits me. I look Marlon
down to tea ln th Caf. and afterwards
we went to the "Pan."
I'll do my essay to-morrow.
Wednesday,  18th.
I wore my new plus-fours for the
first time to-day. They are colored
yellow-ochre with a pale mauve stripe.
They made quite a hit with the girls.
I took Alice down to tea. I told her
about the show at the Capitol and she
said she's like to see It, so we went.
I thought she was going to ask me to
go to the Leap Year Dance but I
guess she felt kind of shy.
I have to do my essay to-morrow as
It has to be handed In on Friday.
Thursday, 19th.
1 had an annoying experience with
a Sciencetuiin. I was In the street car
and got up to give my seat to Phyllis
who had just got on. But a Science-
man slipped into the sent as I arose.
He wouldn't get out when I asked him
and I would have thrown him off the
car only I didn't want (o make a scene
because there wero ladles present.
I cut a couple of lectures to write
my essay In the library but I met
Betty, and I took her to the Caf. for
tea.  instead.
I look Jean to a dance in the evening and got home about 11 a.m. Seems
funny I haven't been asked to that

TENNIS TALK
When good old spring comes along
and tosses a few thousand robins out
of the sky Varsity's powerful tennis
squad will start slamming the balls
across the net for what promises to
be one of the most successful seasons
since present generation of flrst class
racquet wielders came our way.
When the old man Poverty ordained
that a Western Canada Intercollegiate
Tennis meet was so many dollars
out of the way, it gave Varaity tennia
aspirations a set back, as nothing
would have given the B. C, men nnd
women ho much pleasure us tiring
balls at prairie defenders to keep the
trophy they won two years ago.
Nevertheless the spring may bring
sweet revenge when British Columbia
stacks up against Washington and a
few other schools across the line und
demonstrates that they can reverse
the decisions handed them last year.
Headed by tho national star, Gordon
Shields, and assisted by such talent
as Wally Mayers, Hugh Grant, nnd
a hoot ot others lt will take the best
that the northwest can produce to
win out. The old story laBt year
when Varsity went down to defeat
rested around the fact that Shields,
Mayers and Seed were not In good
condition and they are going to see
that the story Is not repeated this
spring. With practice and plenty of
it to give the men the proper tuning
up it should be a good season.
Washington has a decided dearth
ot first class men this year as Mel
Dranga le out of school, Windy
Langlle will be missing, Howard
Langlle Is also out and the Frosh
Ulent last year was not at all sensational. However, Coach Jimmy Arbuth-
not can be depended on to whip a
smart team Into shape and by getting
the drop the others will start the
season out right by collecting a B. C.
scalp.
Shields at tbe top ot his form can
beat the best of them In the Pacific Northwest Intercolleglates, but
last spring Mel Dranga, captain of
the Husky squad, handed him a
straight set lacing in the first meet
and then came back ln a three set
victory in Seattle a week later. Later
ln the summer Dranga would have
been a good player to have taken a
set. That shows just what practice
will do. Shields ranked second in
the ratings at the end of the season
while Dranga took sixth place. In
the doubles, the team of Shields and
Ryall took flrst place and won the
right to represent the north coast
section at the National finals at Forest
Hills, and in the flrst round met
Hennessey and Williams one of the
Big Three doubles teams ln America.
A 4 set victory for the Indianapolis
pair speaks highly for the class of
tennis put up by the greener western
team. Shields tells ot the match not
as an alibi for their showing but as
proof that the brand of tennis in the
west Is not as far behind the east
as many suppose.
"We took the courts," says Shields,
"after one of the most torrental
rains the east had experienced for
many months. Needless to say the
soft grass made the footing almost
Impossible and any thought of a fast
cross court game was out of the
question, We were seriously handicapped from the start by the fact
that we had not brought spikes along
and the footing without them was
hopeless. Time and again both Ilyall
and myself slipped heavily to the
ground when attempting a return.
Under those conditions to take u set
from two stars of alternate Davis
Cup selection was not a bad achievement."
RICHMOND RUNS
RUGGERS RAGGED
Varsity's game crew of young
enthusiasts who bumped up against
Richmond in the Intermediate Canadian Rugby League last Saturday
were taken In tow to a count of 12
to 3. With a quarter-back ln the
person of Tommy Berto, playing tho
game for the flrst time, and with
many others on the team without
previous experience, the Jfllue and
Gold did all that could ho expected
of them. Richmond was In better
form than had heen anticipated and
emerged   victorious.
Early in the tussle, Varsity gained
a point on a dead-line kick and fulled
to score again until the last quarter
when two points were added by a
safety touch. Kennedy and Rolstoti
each scored a cnuntor fur Richmond
and a safety touch gave their side
another two  points,
Berto used good Judgment and
tackled with a grim determination
which will make him a star player.
Coleman was bust on Ihe bucks
Kvery tlmo ho carried tho ball lie
found a weak spot In Richmond's
defense and seemed to be the only
man who could make any headway
In line bucks. Johnston played a fair
game as kicker.
FOOTBALLERS FALL
BEFORE LEGION
On Saturday, Varsity's tlrst soccer
team was eliminated from the Province Cup by Canadian Legion by a
score of 2—1.
The feature of the game was the
greal display by Cy Manning, the captain, ut centre-half, ills play on offensive and del'et.slve was of an excellent quality.
At the beginning of the game the
players had great dllllculty ln Judging
Ihe ball. For the flrst twenty minutes
nildlleld play was the order, with
neither team having Hie advantage.
Canadian Legion began to tighten up
ami opened Ihe scoring aflei twenty
minutes' play. Varsily tried hard lo
equalize, and Mel Gaudin, lanky centre, made several brilliant ui tempts.
Al Todd and Guy Waddington combined ulcely on the left wing, but Wad
dinglon's shot missed the murk.
During Ihe tlrst hull' Ihe Canadian
Legion had been using their exlra
weight lo lull advantage and time and
again ihey played the man nil her than
Ihe ball. The Varsily halt-backs had
been working well getting rid of the
ball quickly and feeding their men
well.
Nothing exciting took place early In
the llrst stanza, and It was not until
about twenty minutes hud elapsed that
Canadian Legion scored u second
goul on u misunderstanding between
Anderson and Wright. Vurslty worked hard, but worked in vain for about
five minutes. Stan Duffell then wrenched his knee and became practically a
passenger thereafter, Varsity fought
back and within two minutes Doug.
Partridge scored Varsity's goal. Try
as they would, Varsity could not equalize. Two or three times Al Todd and
Mel Gaudin came desperately close,
but alas! they could not penetrate far
enough. The final whistle left the
Bcore at 2—1  for Canadian Legion.
Lazy Leatherists Are
Lashed I
Intermediate und Freshman Rugby
players are not showing the proper
spirit by repeatedly failing to turn up
at the weekly workouts on the oval,
Often only four or five players
from each team are turning out, the
rest using any excuse to avoid going
down to the field.
Players who fall to turn out should
remember that their failure to oo so

Lack of combination In the forward
line was largely responsible for the
I - o defeat administered lo the Men's
Grass Hockey team by Ihe Cricketer-
at Connauglit Park on Saturday afternoon.
Individually Hie players put up ;
good showing, but as a team working
together,  Varsity was decidedly  weak.
Cricketers won the toss and in it"
llrst half scored three goals. Several
I lines the Varsity forwards bad a
chance io score, but the opposing de
fence was loo si rung lor Individual

Intermediate Rugby
Vanquish Meralomas
On Saturday tho Intermediates defeated the Meralomas hy 6 to 3, Tho
game was a fast one, both teams being
fairly well matched. Vin'slty had the
edge on the play however.
Play was fust In the first half,
especially, No score wus made for
some time. Then by a forward rush
Into the enemy's twenty-live, and u
pretty three-quarter run over tho line,
Wilson planted the spheroid for a
three-point try, Leek lulled to convert from a difficult angle. Later on ln
the proceedings Wilson again rushed
through the Meralomas for another
three.   The kick fulled.
When the quarrel was resumed In
the aecond period no score was recorded until ubout live minutes from the
end. With the centre-scrum man,
Leek, retired trom the fluid wtth mud
in his eye Meralomas scored three
points.   Then the whistle blew,
The Intermediates have been
strengthened by some Canadian Hug-
by players und have a good chance to
win tlie league,

scores, while the Province wus forced
lo depend chletly on long shots thai
seldom found the mark. Just before
hall-lime Province scored three quick
baskets to ma!;u the count 15—11 for
Vurslty at the Interval.
Both teams came on alter the rest
determined to giv a safe lead at the
start. Province counted flrst on a
beautiful Bhot by McMaster from the
center of the floor, Henderson re-
'""t..i with I wo quick baskets In sue
cession, arid from then on the game
wns u battle. McMaster sank two
more shots from the center of the
floor, and MacDonald made a pretty
basket over his head i'or Varsity.
The game gave several indications
of being very hard fought, such, as
Ave men being laid on the floor at
one time.
Varsity was leading, 2.1—19. rienry
then scored for Province to tie the
count, and for a while It was anybody's game.
Province was awarded two free
shots and missed them both, while
the crowd held Its breath. Butler put
the Blue and Gold ahead again with
about five minutes to go. Varsity's
load was short-lived, however, as the
newsies staged a closing rally that
could not be stemmed, running in four
baskets without a reply, to stack up a
win of 29—23.
Varsity — Mayers 2, Henderson 6.
MacDonald I, Butler 11, Paulson, Robinson, Grant and McEwen.
