Pacifism A Sound
Creed Say Forum
Civil War Has Been Abolished, Why Not International Strife?
Soward to Speak
On World Affairs
Modern Affairs To Be Discussed By Institute
Pacifism was upheld as a spiritually and economically possible creed by the' Parliamentary Forum in Arts 100 when the
negative won last Tuesday evening. John Gould led the affirmative and Peter Disney the negative.   They were followed by a
score of seven-minute speeches from'the floor of the house.
"Is Pacifism possible when Germany $
in two or three days could field an
army of 550,00 men. Hitler one of
450,000 and thc shooting clubs of the
country 800,000 men with rifles? Is
Pacifism possible white in the United
States today there is a poisonous gas
plant with a cnpitalizaton of $45,000,-

the affirmative.
O.T.C. Compulsory ln England
He reminded his opponents that the
O.T.C. has been made compulsory
in all English Public Schools to arouse military interest; thit all countries are arming today because it is
the trend of th-1 age; and that Stanley Baldwin of England believes his
country's defense line is on the
He quoted G. D. H. Cole as saying
that Pacifism and Capitalism are absolutely incompatible and that under
Capitalism war is inevitable. He mentioned that never in the last 2.000
years has thera ever been 10 years
of peace.
Survival of Fittest Prevents Pacifism
"So long as the British Empire is
based on Darwin'.^ theory of the survival of the fittest, there can never be
Pacifism. Lritiin was following this
theory when she took Canada from
the Ni*th'*Am«nchn Indian and ajso
when she absorbed Australia, South
Africa and India into the Empire.
She was on pacifist when she laid
the badis of Empire." concluded the
leader  of  the affirmative.
Peter Disney, leader of the negative, cited Sweden and Denmark a.s
examples of Uu  possibility of Pacif-

"The Outlook in International Affairs" will be the subject of Prof. F.
H. Soward of the History Department
in his address before the Vancouver
Institute Satu.-day evening. The general world uncertainty because of

European countries accentuated by
the recent assassination of King Alexander—all these make Prof. Sow-
ard's lecture of vital interest to everyone.
In the field of international relations, and in pa:ticular in the knowledge of the intricate and complicated
problems of Europe, Professor Soward is generally recognized as perhaps the most competent authority in
Western Canada. The interactions of
racisJ- political, ond national ambi*

fruit of jcalousie; and misunderstandings extending back through the centuries, as well ;;s the well-nigh insoluble difficulties created during and

Sixty Four New
Graduates Enter
Our Convocation
Chancellor     Makes     Address
Before Admitting Candidates
A week ago a u quest was made to
all clubs to submit the names of
their executive officers to the Executive. Unless this request is compiled
with at once all clubs failing to do
?o will immediately forfeit all rights
and privieges of a club under this
executive. Wiun handing in the
names cf your executive please give
their faculty and year.
"It is the blessing of the discontented among us that leads to higher
fields, ' said Chancellor McKcchnie at
the fall convoc ition program in Arts
100 Wednesday afternoon. "It is this
discontent which has made the graduates work fo.- 1 heir degrees, and aspire  to further learning."
Sixty-four candidates were awarded variously. Bachelor of Arts, of
Applied Science, of Agriculture, and
Master of Arts degrees. About 250
spectators sat in the tiers of Arts 100
to watch  the ceremony.
Faculty Colorful
At four o'clock the faculty in their
colorful and sombre gowns made a
stately procession into the hall. The
graduates provided the sombre note
with  their gown; of black.
Following the Chancellor's address
the degrees were awarded. Each candidate knelt on the blue cushion
while Chancel lo.' McKechnie touched
each head, -md sairl the words. "I
admit you." Th" hood was placed on
each graduates shoulder, and ho received his degree, on a scroll tied
with blue and geld  ribbon,
"The significance of the words. "I
admit. you!" explained President
Klinck, "Is not that you are leaving
this University, hut rather that henceforth, vou are a member of it."
Bigger Attendance for Fall
In his closing remarks. President
Klinck expressed satisfaction that
Fall congregation was this year more
generously attended and enthusiastically   witnessed   than   ever   before,
Campus Clubs were cut an additional 1;> percent, reducing each to
bare necessities. This budget was
passed by Council, Monday night, and
will provide for a $1000 surplus.
"We expect to break just about
even this year." Murray Mather, president of the A.M.S., declared. "Last
year there was a $750 surplus provided for, but by the end of the year
there was a S4'i0 deficit in the A.M.S.
balance sheet." Mather expressed regret at thc churlishness of some clubs
which tried to get a.s much in their
demands to the A.M.S. a.s possible,
with   no  regard   for   reason.
Stadium Again
Another bond issue will be floated
if the A.M.S. sees fit. in an attempt
to finish, the Stadium, it was decided
at the meeting. Council appointed a
committee to '.vestigate costs; their
report is to be m before the Christmas holidays. The bond will probably be issued next year for. in another two years, the Gynuuisium debt
will  be  paid.
"Varsity is going to play American
Football and we re going to keep on
playing it. even if it means two years
of losing to American college teams.
Wc are not going to play high school
teams from the States." Freddie Bolton. Men's Athletic representative,
stated. The unsportsmanlike criticism
of the press in Vancouver is discouraging but Varsity will eventually
reach the American College standards,  was his opinion.
Hardy Cup May Be Played
A representative from U.B.C. will
be sent to Viclotia for the B.C. Rugby Union this year. Council has decided to try to meet the finanical obligations connected with the Hardy
Cup game with Alberta.
The Faculty Committee have voted
against games being held on Sunday.
The English Rugby Club game with
Nanaimo will, therefore, be forfeited.
Dr. Warren h is been appointed a Faculty Representative of the English
Rugby Club.
The Basktball Club schedule has
been adopted and it will arrange foi
numerous games with American
teams, especially during the Christmas holidays.

For a second time, the National Federation of Canadian University Students has failed in its attempt to
field a team of debaters from Western
Canadian Universities. Last year when
it was announced there woutd be such

in B. C. Anglicanism in the person
of the Very Reverend Dean of Columbia, the "Breezy Dean," Rev. Cecil

He is an Englishman bred and born,
and a cultural product of an ancient!bate keeping its best debaters for that

Without any consideration for

"Pick your man and wire name within six hours." Frank Millar, president
of the Parliamentary Forum, wired
back that this was impossible and that
his society resented tho lack of consideration and courtesy on the part
of the N.F.C.U.S.
Alberta Gets Mumps
Later, peace was reached and Frank
Millar was chosen as the representative of U.B.C. To-gether with an Alberta man. he was to tour the Northwestern American Universities under
the auspices of the N.F.C.U.S. And
now the Alberta man has to go and
get the mumps.
Prairie  University Gets  Bad Name
The University of Alberta is certainly not getting a very good name
on this campus. Students note that
last year their chosen man complained
at the last moment that he "couldn't
spare the time!" This year he had to
get tho numps of all things. What the
undergraduates' want to know is why
the N.F.C.U.S. couldn't choose some
other debater from Alberta or even a
debater from one of the other West-
  ern  Canadian  Universities.   Is U.B.C.

1921, a Fellow of the Worcester College, Oxford. A Mathematics scholar
of Christ Church, Mr. Gerrans was
both a keen administrator and business man. In bis position as Secretary of the Oxford Local Examinations he perfected a system of marking by which he could supervise
thousands of markers scattered over
the entire globe. But by no means
did the mathematical department absorb all his energy, for he was a fine
Classical scholar, proficient in modern languages, and deeply interested
in word conditions.
Thirty-five Thousand Volumes
Upon his death in 1921, Mrs. Gerrans commenced disposing of his vast
library of over thirty-five thousand
volumes. The Mathematics section,
considered on^ of the best private
collections in England, was given to
the Mathematics department at Oxford. University College, Exeter, Mr.

The University of Alberta Canadian Rugby
team is coming to Vancouver to play against
tbe Meralomas on November 1 and November
3, and has been guaranteed over eleven hundred dollars for the trip. It has therefore
naturally taken the opportunity to challenge
the University of British Columbia for possession of the Hardy Cup, emblem of the western inter-collegiate Canadian rugby championship.
Our students' council, however, has decided not to accept the challenge, but instead to
relinquish the Hardy Cup by default, on the
grounds of financial inability to finance the
two-day stay-over of the Alberta team which
would be necessary. The Albertans want a
guarantee of two hundred dollars, but Council
does not believe that it could make that much
on a game so soon after the games against the
Meralomas, and at the same time is also afraid
that this game would adversely affect the attendance at the American game the following
Saturday against College of Puget Sound.
This actions seems rather inconsistent with
the avowed intention of Council to foster intercollegiate sport. It was because of the difficulty of obtaining Canadian intercollegiate
competition that we decided to develop a
league with some of the American colleges to
the south. But now when we have an unusual
chance for a game against a neighboring Canadian university at comparatively little expense,
we apparently are to pass it up.
It is very lamentable, not only as a matter
of policy, but also as a demonstration of a lack
of fighting spirit, that we should find ourselves
in the position of defaulting a championship in,
our own Canadian game in order to develop
the American game on our campus—particularly since the Canadian code is generally preferred here.
In view of the fact that it was Alberta's
turn this year to pay for a trip by the U.B.C.
team to Edmonton, and that they were unable
to do so on account of finances, it seems that
they might be willing to concede something
with regard to the guarantee which they have
requested for an intercollegiate game. Under
the conditions just mentioned we are not absolutely obliged to default the Hary Cup if
we do not play the challengers, but Council
proposes to do so "as a sporting gesture."
Rather than yielding up our most cherished
athletic trophy so easily, however, would it not
be better to approach the challengers with a
view to reducing the guarantee which they require?
The last game between Varsity and Alberta,
which was held here last fall, was one of the
best games of the season; and in intercollegiate
games in general there is a peculiar quality
which distinguishes them from any other kind
of game.
For this reason alone no opportunity of
such competition should be neglected. And in
addition to this it will certainly not be much
to our credit in later years to have it known
that we allowed a neighboring university—and
above all a Canadian university—to carry off
one of our major trophies without even giving
therm a fight for it.
Horrible Fate of Good Intentions
Crabbing is a dreary business at best, no
matter how beneficial to the subjects of my
exhortations, but there are occasional compen
sations. The hearty response to last week's
column was one of these, especially as I had
departed from my usual attitude, and had endeavoured to provide that larger proportion of
constructive criticism so often asked for.
Imagine my surprise and delight, then,
when the lightning descended upon my unprotected cranium from all directions. It seems
that my purely helpful suggestions had given
offense to everyone who could in the remotest
manner connect himself with the subjects under discussion, However, my head is bloody
but unbowed,
It is so far unbowed that I have no hesitation in advising the various people concerned
to reread the article in question, and, discarding the quite unjustifiable idea that mention
in this column is tantamount to criminal indictment, to ask themselves if there was any
criticism at all in the first or last sections, overt
or implied, and if they did not contain suggestions that are at least well worth considering?
I refrain from making any remarks about
people who spend valuable time searching for
caps that will fit, let alone manufacturing them
out of nothing.
A Matter of Opinion
The athletic solons mentioned in the paragraphs devoted to their department have, I
must admit, quite legitimate arguments to advance against me. On the other hand, the fact
that they have considered the matter, and, of
necessity, chosen one of twp alternative courses
of action, does not alter that fact that the other
side had a ease, still has a case, and conceivably
might have the best case.
Thus, I am ready to agree with their argument that they should be allowed a fair chance
to work out the plan they have adopted, but
I should be playing my crustacean nature false
if I did not keep them in a salutary state of
irritation by reminding them that there is a
considerable body of campus opinion that is
likely to light on the backs of their necks
with a good deal of enthusiasm if they fail to
make good, and they have a hard job ahead of
them to do just that.
Having made this somewhat grudging admission, I shall immediately advance another
proposal, but one that, I understand, requires
the initiative to come from the various clubs
One of the criticisms often hurled at this
University is that it has few really modern
courses or books to offer to the students. Most
historical and economical events take at least
a year before they reach the lecture room and
are fed to the students in the form of easy
notes. The Vancouver Institute, however, does
a lot to remedy this defect. Every Saturday
night a prominent man is brought out to speak
in the auditorium. The subjects vary from the
latest developments in theoretical physics toi
the last news received from Hitler Germany.
Good Sports or Cheap Sports?
Suggestions have been made that the men
from the Unemployed Militia Camp be invited
to participate unofficially in interclass sport,
and possibly be extended the use of some of
our training facilities. I hope they will be
It would not only be a graceful gesture toward a body of men who have already proved
themselves not lacking in sportsmanship and
sports ability, but would show that we have
some consideration for those whose lot has not
been cast in the same fortunate channels as our
The obligation would be far from all on
one side, either. This move would be justified
by the added interest which would be aroused
in interclass sport, let alone by any less ulterior motives.
The manner in which this suggestion is accepted by our athletic clubs will make quite
clear whether we are sportsmen or just "College sports."

parents.' Piar.o selections of popular
music had opened the program. "Then

Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I have received a letter from the
Chief Constable's office, from which
I quote:
"Complaints have been received by
this Department of the speed with
which students of the University
drive to and from the University especially on 41st Avenue, and 10th and
12th  Avenues,   West.
Parents who have younger children
attending schools on these routes,
complain bitter!." of this practice and
th-.1 possibilities of fatal consequences
I have been asked to bring this to
the attention of the students and to
point out to thc.v, the harm done to
their Alma Matet by this practice, in
the hope that lower complaints will
be received in the future.
Yours sincerely.
R. M. Mather, Pres. A.M.S.
Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Despite the fact that the official
frosh iniation period is now over and
he is now a full undergrad, there are
still many utterances of unmeritted
contempt against the long-suffering
freshman by the conglomeration of
misguided cranks who infest thc
campus. Even the press, which is
supposed to beti ay some signs of intelligence and civilization, has joined
the green-eyed chorus which is attempting to destroy the reputation of
the so-called gi ten-horns and is now
printing, for all the world to see,
the fashionable blasphemy, which is
the evidence cf traditional stupidity.
The Frosh is willing to provide amusement for th.' simple-minded veterans and to be the butt of their
feeble jokes, but he will not receive
the heinous insults of these secretly-
admiring barbarians. Besides, he
feels thai their little coconuts should
be emptied of their childish bad temper by now, and that it is time for
them to go back and enjoy their
The half-witted observations going
around now are especially obnoxious
because they ate so entirely without
foundation and hi Iter b.'fit thc criminals than their victims. In fact any
psychologist would at once say that
these monstrosities are the expressions of the subconscienccs of live creatures who thus give vent to their
disappointment:* in their lack of natural gifts hy attempting to pin similar faults on those whom they cannot help but sc to be thc very paragons of perfection. Though he is
too considerate of thc feelings of all
animals to u\y so. every freshman
knows that he is as far removed from,
say, a tophoinoiv, as a man is from
an ape. Note that the honest frosh
does not exaggerate in his comparison
as dg his enemi ;s when they label
him frog, worm, microcosm, and other
such unique appellations.
His astounding superiority i3 well
demonstrated when he is placed beside the senile sophs, juniors, or seniors. For instance, no freshman could
possibly conceive such a kteptoman-
ical exhibition as that put on by the
sophomores when they stole the frosh
fire-extinguisher in order to deprive
him of a palt.'v- §60 worth of filthy
lucre. When the frosh finds it necessary to chastise an offender, thc
punishment is of benefit to the fortunate receiver, ns was the case in
the bathings iidministered to the recalcitrant sophs. Nor is he as stagnant as the rheumatic juniors, so
sunken in their stupor that four of
them, with the full support of the
Alma Mater Society, could not excite enough interest in the student
body, including their own petrified
class-mates, to get more than three
hundred   peoil-e   tc   vote    for    them.

Has Failed
"The spirit of Christ is calling the
Church to awake from her indifference and to set out to save civilization
once again," declared the Rev. M. H.
Talnicoff. Wednesday noon in Arts
204, when he addressed a meeting
sponsored by the V.C.U.
After a brief sketch of conditions
since the War, Mr. Talnicoff pointed
out that the spirt of materialism had
failed in spite of the world's confidence in continued prosperity. "If
eleven apostles could 'turn the world
upside down,' what could 550,000.000
professing Christians do?" he asked.
The Church, .stated Mr. Talnicoff,
has a fourfold function in the world:
firstly, to criticise and condemn all
types of injustice, the moral and social; secondly, th: Church must demand reconstruction of the social order from thc bottom up; thirdly, thc
Church has an individual message
which it must deliver, and fourthly,
the Church should stand back of all
movements for the betterment of humanity.
In conclusion, Mr. Talnicoff. when
asked what he would replace Capitalism with, replied that he did not
know what 'ism' would result if legislation was filled with the spirit
of Jesus Christ. If Sociaism or Communism were the result, it was all
right with him.

All this he took on with one hoy

Lobor Organization
Wonderful Achievement
"The International Labour Organization is a wonderful achievement
and has made great progress since
its inception. Much of the work is
routine, and none is very spectacular
in the newspaper sense but the amount it has accomplished is really
wonderful." So Mr. Bengough stated
at the first meeting of the International Relations Club held at the
home if the Honorary President Prof.
F. Soward, Wednesday. Mr. Bengough is the secretary of the Trade
and Labour Council of Vancouver.
He has been advij-or to the Canadian
labour delegate.
Thc International Labour Organ-,
ization was brought into being by
section thirteen of the Versailles
Treaty, with the purpose of developing peace through social justice. Thc
eighteenth session was held this year.
At present tho organization has as
its goal the payment of wages adequate to a reasonable living standard,
the forty-eight hour week, a weekly
rest of at least twenty-four consecutive hours, and thc abolition of child
labour. It aims at an adequate system of inspection, and for men and
women equal wages for equal work.
The representation from each country is formed of one delegate sent by
th labour and one from the manufacturers and two from the government.
It is an international labour parliament.
How is the work carried on? A
resolution is placed before thc delegates. If passed ii is referred to the
International labour office for thorough research and the preparation
of an agenda. I'or the next two sessions the proposal is discussed. If
it is passed the third year the resolution goes out aa a recommendation
to the various governments. Ques-
tionaires are circulated. From the
replies a new agenda is drawn up. It
is then placed before the delegates
for final approval. If a country ratifies one of these recommendations it
is bound to incorporate into the laws
legislature to establish the recommendation. I
Canada has rot ratified many of
these proposals—about a tenth. Many I
aro enjoyed but not permanently ratified by the Dominion government.
Others come under the jurisdiction
of the provinces.
"The speed and accuracy with
which the work is carried on is astounding," said Mr. Bengough. Interpreters can translate quickly and
accurately and with almost no notes
speeches taking forty-five minutes.
Delegates are equipped with telephones on which they can dial to
any language they wish and hear the
speech that is being given. Each
speech is not only translated into all
the languages but retranslated back
into the original and checked. At
even the next morning all the proceedings of the previous day are delivered to the hotel rooms of the del-
gates in their own language. Any
mistakes which have been made are
corrected the next day.
The convention lasts three weeks
and meets each day but Sunday, and
Saturday afternoons which are given
over for social intercourse. The four
candidates from each country come
long distances and have a tremendous amount of work to cover in a
limited time.   They work hard.
The progress is slow but it must be
so. Already the social and living*
condition of millions of people has
been improved. Already the effects
of the meetings can be seen not only
in the better labour conditions, but
in the breaking of prejudices and
the better international understanding among the peoples represented.
Mr. Soward told the club that five
hundred international relations club
have now been formed under the
Carnegie peace grant. Thc local unit
was the second lo be formed in Canada. Fifty thousand dollars a yaer
arc spent sending books to these
branches to buiici up permanent libraries of the hes! books on international topics. The books are placed
on a limited loan for non-members

ly warfare does not deliver the goods,"
said Peter Disney.
"Just as national governments have
overcome civil warfare and established pacifism v.ithin a country; so
could an international government establish peace between nations", suggested a speaker for the negative.
Armament Companies Foment War
"Recently th> league of nations
proved that the armament companies of the world foment war, bribe
officials of government, institute false
propaganda, end control public opinion through the press. The league
was even prevented from making
public this report through armament
control of banks and press. In the
light of these '.'onditions, Pacifism is
impossible!" maintained a speaker for
the affirmative.
Another affirmative speaker pointed out that Japan could never be a
pacifist nation so long as her country
was so crowded that she could not
maintain her population while land
in  Australia  went  undeveloped.
"Disney ways that aethestism reaches
its highest level in timae of peace; I j
maintain that is wrong,'' stated Conway. 'No saint has ever produced
art—art is born of sin and .suffering
Beethoven w rote . his greatest
symphony during a war and he was
a deaf man."
Brilliant Feminine Repartee
"Is personal pacifism possible while
right here on our own campus Sophomore men throw poor little Frosh
into the Lily pond or while Arts-
Science egg fights persist?" questioned Madeline Bowden, vice-president of '38, who with her brilliant
repartee put thc scientific hecklers
in their proper place.
"We would be saying 'Herr Hitler'
today if England had been a pacifist
in 1914,'   noted Ludlow Beamish.
Quoting the Oxford dictionary, Cal
Thompson defined pacifism as a doctrine that abolition of war is both
desirable and possible. He told Conway that art is produced through
suffering caused by poverty and
physical defects more than through
suffering caused by war. Thompson
maintained thst religion eompells one
to be a pacifist.
"Is any system that overthrows our
standard of eth.es desirable? Is it
right to steal, ond murder in times
of war but not in times of peace?"
asked Fiank Millar, president of the
Socialists Advocate War
One speaker enforced Mr. Cole's
remark by shawmg that not only is
pacifism impossible under capitalism
but the socialists advocate war to
overthrow capitalism.

team having failed twice to produce

out to show sporting Vancouver that
they are capable of beating another
team. On Saturday at Athletic park
they will meet the V.A.C. "Wolfes"
in the Canadian Rugby double-header for the week-end.
V.A.C. have no! shown any more
promise than the students having
lost two games and won one. With
the help of coach Moe the students
have produced several new and dazzling plays with which they hope to
defeat the red shirts.
New Blocking Tactics
Besides their new plays and style
of aerial attack the students hope to
introduce something new and entirely different in the line of blocking.
Under the expert tutelage of Moe the
boys have been absorbing a few elementary principles of tho University
of Washington manner of blocking.
They hope that it will prove successful against V.A C.
Captain Freddy Bolton will not
play for the Thunderbirds as he is
saving his encrj'y for the game against
the College of Puget Sound next
week. He statu that the members
of thc team have been cutting down
on various pleasures and getting to

in the  win column.

With home games on Saturday
nights In their own gymnasium, and
the new speedy game that has been
evolved, the Blue and Gold Senior A.
basketmen are confident that the
hoop sport will make a comeback In
popularity with students this year as
It has with sport fans down town.
Despite tho fact that the Thunderbirds have already played two games,
the official basketball season at Varsity opens tomorrow when the Blue
and Gold Hoopers tangle with the colorful V.A.C. squad. The Pep Club
will stage some sort of stunt to send
the season on Its way. They are very
myterlous about the exact nature of
the proceedings, but It has been revealed that Dean Buchanan will toss
up the first ball.
The V.A.C, team this year is a great
deal stronger than last year's squad.
Bob Osborne, one of the greatest
guards ever turned out by U.B.C,
last year captain of the Varsity team,
and high scorer of the league, has
been prepping the Winged V aggregation, and they are showing the effect of good coaching. They will provide stiff opposition for the Thunderbirds.
Teams Even ln Game Points
Both teams have won and lost a
game. Varsity bowed to the Province
team Saturday, and beat the Adanacs
Wednesday by one slim point. V.A.C.
dropped their game with Adanacs by
two points Saturday after leading
throughout. Then Wednesday they
ran 'over the McKenzie and Fraser
team by a big margin. Thus-, by their
record so far, both teams are about
equal strength, and a hard-fought
battle should result.
The line-up for Saturday's game
will probably be changed from that of
the last two games. Art Willoughby,
flash forward who put in the last basket that beat Adanacs Wednesday,
will not be out. Art will be in the
backfield of the Canadian Rugby
team when they play V.A.C, Saturday
afternoon. The probable line-up will
include Captain Jimmie Bardsley at
forward, George Pringle at center,
Ralph Henderson at forward, Tommy
Mansfield and Dick Wright at guard.
Bob Osborne, former star and captain of the Varsity basketball team
who will play against his former team/
mates on Saturday.

but tow quick baskets by Art Willoughby after Wright's free shot gave

Adanacs started out with two baskets, but after Bardsley's long heave
found the hemp the lead zig-zagged
from one side to the other, and half
time found Varsity on tho long end
of a 15-13 count. Ross, Bardsley and
Wright each contributed four points
in this period, Pringle being responsible for the other three.
Varsity Take Big Lead
Free shots by Bardsley and Henderson, and a basket by the former
sent the collegians away to a six-
point lead in the first five minutes
of the second canto, but Mayers and
Smith with three beautiful plays tied
the score up again.
Oppo-ing Wrights kept the contest
even with a basket apiece until Mansfield on a pass under the basket from
Bardsley scored the nicest basket of
the evening. The Thunderbirds play-

Pearson Returns
Harry Pearson who is considered
one of the best ving forwards in the
union, will be back in his familiar
position again. Pearson, who has
played for years for the Thunderbirds, will be of great assistance to
the forwards who will be up against
an extremely heavy scrum.
The three quarter line has been altered for Saturday's game. Wilson,

Thc Publications Board Council game
will not take place today at noon but
will be played next Tuesday.
The   reason   for   the   po>tponcment
I has not been given but it is understood that one of the editors had to
go clown town with his mother in
order to pick out some new winter
underwear, on Friday and thus
wouldn't be able to play.
i It b, planned to charge a small admission of one cent (lc) to defray the
cost of bringing the splendid group
ot   stars   that   will   play   out   to   the
, Universsity. Never in the hi.-tory of
this annual classic has the array of
talent been so overwhelmingly bad.
It is rumored that the Pub. Board is
going to protest the game clue to the
fact that Council has been importing
c-pecially bad players for this classic.

charge of importing players Mr. Mur- <    Mr. Walter Kennedy, star drawback

It is with great regret that we announce the retirement of Bobby Gaul
as captain of the first string English
Rugby fifteen. Besides his duties as
captain, Bobby Iss president of the Big
Block Club.
During his University career Gaul
has won his Big Block three times.
For thc past two years he has not
been able to play rugby due to sickness which has kept him not only
from the rugby Held but from his
studies. In recognition of his outstanding ability as a player he was elected
