SCHEDULES FOR
GYM CLASSES
COMPLETE NOW
Physical Education
Directors Begin
Classes
ARCHERY JOR WOMEN
Organization of schedules for
the programme of physical ed-
ucation recently instituted by
University authorities has been
finally completed by Miss Gertrude Moore and Maurice Van
Vliet, according to John Harrison, Men's Athletic Representative on Students' Council.
The classes under Miss Moore have
already commenced, he said Monday,
with classes in badminton, archery,
folk-dancing and gymnastic theory
for woman included in the program.
Mr. Van Vliet will commence his
clr.sses on Wednesday, these to include boxing, tumbling and apparatus, basketball (playing, coaching and
officiating) and general physical education through gymnastic training.
A romplete list of schedules is appended.
INSTRUCTORS TEMPORARY
"It is up to the students to express their appreciation of the action taken by the University authorities in the appointment of
these two ^instructors. They have
been appointed only because the
student body asked to have them,"
he said.
"The instructors are only appointed
temporarily," Harrison emphasized.
"It is essential for both men and
women who wish to see activities if
this sort continued on the campus to
give ihe program their fullest support.
"Both instructors are fully qualified, and were carefully chosen from
a large list of applicants by the selection committee headed by Dr. Gordon Shrum of the department of
physics. Both are willing to co-operate with the student body to the
fullest extent in an effort to fulfill
the needs and wishes of the students
to the best of their ability."
COOPERATION NEEDED
"It Is the duty of all Interested in
physical education to turn out in
force, and help to make the program
a success. That Is the only way
that physical education can be continued at U.B.C."
A sum of not more than $500 has
been set aside by University board
of governors for physical education,
and the south-west corner of the
gymnasium has been refitted, to
make offices for the instructors. Miss
Moore and Mr. Van Vliet can be interviewed in the offices at all times.
In conclusion, Harrison pointed out
that the new policy is not intended
to benefit any special group of students, and it is hoped that the great
majority will take advantage of the
new facilities which are being offered.
Complete program of gymnastic
classes is as follows:
Monday—Women, 10 to 1:30, gymnasium; Men, 1:30 to 3, boxing.
Tuesday—Women, 10 to 12, gymnasium; Men, 12 to 1:30, gymnasium;
Women, 1:30 to 3, beginners' badminton; Men, 3 to 4:30, tumbling and apparatus.
Wednesday—Men, 9 to 10. basketball
coaching; Men, 10 to 11. basketball officiating; Men, 10 to 11, general gymnasium; Men, 1:30 to 3. basketball
playing.
Thursday—Women, 10 to 12, general gymnasium; Men, 12 to 1:30.
tumbling and apparatus; Women. 1:30
to 3:30,  general  gymnasium.
Friday—Women, 10 to 12, general
gymnasium; Men, 1:30 to 3:30, boxing.
Saturday — Men, 10 to 11, general
gymnasium; M*?n, 12 to 1. basketball
playing.
Mr. Van Vliet announced Wednesday th11 any men who are unable to
fit this program with their academic
courses should see him in his office
or at one of the coaching periods.
Pianiste
Eltje de Ridder, well known pianiste, who will assist at Mr. de Bidder's lecture on Strings, Wednesday
noon ln Ap. Sc. 100. She will Illustrate
points In the lecture on the piano.
Admiral Byrd
May Speak
At D.B.C.
Council Accepts Resignation of
Office Secretary
An invitation to Admiral Richard
E. Byrd to addijss the students of
U.B.C. on the subject of "Antartica"
was authorized by the Students'
Council at their meeting last night.
Admiral Byrd will speak to the University of Washington students in Seattle on Thursday but no date for
his local appearance has bean set.
Admiral Byrd (CM., D.F.C.) of the
U.S. Navy has been decorated with
the Legion of Honor, the Hubbard
Gold Medal far valor in exploration
—given by President Coolidge and the
Life Saving Medal of Honor.
SECRETARY LEAVING
Council accepted the resignation of
Miss Marie Henderson, who has been
secretary ln the Alma Mater office
since 1931. Miss Henderson, a grad
uate of the University of Alberta, has
accepted a better position elsewhere.
A successor has been appointed. The
resignation will take effect January
31st.
The committee working on student
Co-ops will be asked to speed up its
work in order that It may report to
the next Alma Mater meeting.
The Musical Society was granted
permission to hold the performance
of "Pirates of Penzance" in the Auditorium on Jan. 27, 28, and 29. This
date will not interfere with the Arts
'38 party as it did last year.
No date was set for the Phrateres
Dance.
Valuable Books
Missing
''The unauthorized and unjustified 'borrowing' of three
valuable books from the Library's Reference Shelves" motivated the forceful statement given thc Ubyssey Saturday by Dr.
W. N. Sage of the History department. Loss of the books, In-
dlspenslble to students of History 10 and 19 and difficult to
replace, seriously inconvenience
these students since an exam on
work contained ln them has
been set for the 27th and 29th,
of this month.
"I cannot find words to express my utter abhorrence of
the conduct of students who
could remove such necessary
books from the Library," said
Dr. Sage. "Thc supply Is limited at best, and it Is not In keeping wtth the real traditions of
this University that students
for their own personal gain
should hinder their fellow undergraduates from obtaining the
means of preparation for required examinations.
''I appeal to thc sense of honour among the student body to
see not only that the books are
riiturnc<i, hut that such unauthorized and unjustified borrowing will not be countenanced In future by the student
body."
Music Talks
Start
Wednesday
Allard de Ridder Commences
Lecture Series
The first of Mr. Allard de Ridder's
lectures on music will be tomorrow,
Wednesday, in Applied Science 100
at 3:30 p.m.
The first group of instruments to
be discussed will be the strings, the
violin, both first and second, the viola, the 'cello and the double bass.
There will be demonstrations and selections on all four instruments. Mr.
de Ridder will tell of the place of
these instruments in a full orchestra
and also discuss them alone, in a
string orchestra, the duet, the trio
and the quartette.
This very Interesting series of lectures has been arranged aa much for
the musically Illiterate at for those
who have a knowledge of music. They
will be particularly valuable for those
who attend symphony concerts for
they will give a form and meaning
to the music.
Succeeding lectures, which will be
held each Wednesday, will deal with
the woodwinds,  the brasses and the
percussion instruments.
REFERENCE BOOKS
On Mist Smith's desk in the Library
there is a list of books on musical
subjects compiled with the idea of
aiding students to get the full benefit of these lectures. There ara seven
books now and more are being called
in to satisfy the needs of all the students.
The books that are already in are
as follows:
"Everyman and His Music," by
Scholes, a volume of essays reprinted
from "Everyman," "Evening Standard" and "The Music Student."
"The Violin: Its Famous Makers
and Players," by Stoeving, a book
discussion of the violin from origin
to modern times, giving its makers,
players and the chief methods used
in teaching people to play.
"A Dictionary of Old English Music
and Musical Instruments," by Pulver.
"Interpretation of Music of the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries,"
by Dolmetsch, a work dealing with
the parts played by the different instruments, and orchestrations.
"Musical Instruments," by A. J.
Hopkins. This book deals with historic, rare and unique instruments,
their development and use.
"Orchestral Wind Instruments," by
Ulrlck Daubeny, a book dealing with
the theory and use of wind instruments in the orchestra.
"The Viollncello, It's History, Selection and Adjustment", by Broadly,
a work written chiefly to assist the
professional or amateur to select the
best suited instrument.
ALUMNI PLAYS Manitoba Meets U.B.C. In
HmJEl3 McGoud Debate Here Friday
DR. SEDGEWICK
One Play May Be
Chosen For
Festival
Will Travel
NONE GOOD^ENOUGH
Concluding that the quality of the
three Alumni plays presented Saturday evening was such that none of
them merited being entered in the
Dominion Drama Festival, Dr. O. O.
Sedgewick offered amusing and faintly acid criticism on behalf of his fellow adjudicators, Mrs. A. F. B. Clark
and Mr. James Butterfield. "I would
advise the Players Club Alumni ln
future to select plays which merit
the effort expended on them," he
said, expanding the opinion that none
of the plays could be considered an
artistic whole.
"The Spinsters of Lushe," an amusing comedy handsomely stag-ad, provided thirty minutes of fluttering,
gushing entertainment. Humour of
the dialogue was just sufficient to
counterbalance the play's lack of action and superfluity of verbiage.
"This Dresden china virtuosity" the
judges unanimously considered the
best performance, since It sustained
its tons and most nearly approached
being an artistic unity. "It keeps its
key and doesn't exceed its limits. The
acting is well enough, but really good
acting is Impossible without genuine
substance to work on. Amateur plays
of all plays must have substance,"
was the opinion of the judges. Special credit for attractively quaint and
colorful costuming is due to Mr. and
Mrs. Kenneth Caple.
TRAGEDY LACKS SUSPENSE
The tragedy, "Luck Piece," while
earnestly done and distinguished by
the excellent portrayal by Malcolm
Pretty as a tragic drunk, lacked the
suspense and Intensity necessary for
successful production. The action
was too casual, and awkward halts
disturbed its continuity. Isobel Barton was sincere and effective as the
old mother.
"I am going to criticize the audience severely for laughing with such
apparent enjoyment at this last play,"
warned Dr. Sedgewick in reference to
"Below Par," a disjointed farce which
originated from the University of
Washington. "Professional production
of this piece would merit a greeting
only of a vegetable nature," he added.
Wllmer Haggerty, at an erratic patient in a mental hospital, armed
with a small hatchet and obsessed
with a desire to operate, provided
most of the more hilarious If lets
subtle humour In this comedy of mistaken identities.
Altogether, regardless of the calibre of entertainment, a large audience found enjoyable entertainment
in the performance.—J. B
Indianapolis Delegates
Meet Outstanding Men
Kagawa, Koo, Archbishop of York, Among
Those U.B.C. Group Hear At Conference
By Norah Sibley
Three thousand miles, across three-quarters of a continent,
through the scenic Cascades, the sage-covered mesas of Idaho,
the high desolate ranges of Wyoming, the snow-covered farms
of Nebraska and Iowa, across the famed Mississippi River, on
to Chicago, our only important stop-over—such was our route
as we travelled to the Twelfth Quadriennial Convention of the
Student Volunteer Movement in Indianapolis.
Chicago we found cold, dirty and
disappointingly law-abiding by day,
but really fascinating by night as we
viewed its myriad lights from the top
of one of the innumerable skyscraper
hotels. Before we caught the midnight blu-j we were fortunate enough
to soo the lavishly beautiful musical
play which was then drawing huge
crowds to the Auditorium Theatre,
The Great Waltz," featuring the
noted Albertir.a Rasch dancers.
BUS TRAVEL
As Indianapolis lies only a few hundred miles south of Chicago, we arrived   there   the   next   day   on    the
travel. Our delegation, which son-
sisted of Lois Sanderson, Phyllis
Shaw, Norah Sibley, Peter Disney,
Bob McMaster, Bob McKenzie, Harry
Morrow, George Nicholson and Sam
Roddan, found a warm welcome
awaiting it as one of the units comprising the three thousand delegates
from eight Canadian provinces and
forty-three American States. The
general air of friendliness pervading
the conference gave us a chance to
meet dozens of other delegates, among
th'3 most interesting of whom were
foreign students from South Africa,
China, Japan, etc., and the negro del-
Debate At 3:45 For
Convenience Of
Students
Alvin Rosenbaum, who, with John
Conway, will journey to Edmonton to
meet the University of Alberta McGouan Cup team there.
Debate Will Be
Held In Afternoon
For the first time in the history of
inter-collegiate debating at this university, an important debate will be
held on the campus at a time which
is convenient for most of the students. The McGouan Cup debates
this Friday will be held In the Auditorium at 3:45 p.m.
Members of the Musical Society will
give a short recital In the Auditorium
preceding the debate at 3:30. The entire affair will be over by half put
five, and special buses will be present
to carry the crowd home.
The executive of the Parliamentary
Forum expresses the hope that students will lend their support to this
debate. There is a smal admission
charge of 10c—much smaller than is
usual  at  inter-collegiate debates.
Spanish Grill For
The Soph. Hop
The Spanish Grill has been chosen
by the executive of Arts '38 for their
class party Jan. 30. Music by Mart
Kenny and his band will be featured,
and with the special plans of the executive already under way, the party
should be a success.
Sophomores are requested to pay
up their class fees soon in order that
th* committee in charge may arrange
for the refreshments and accomodation.
Fees may be paid to any member
of the executive of Arts '38 or to the
treasurer who is at the foot of the
caf stairs daily.
Phrateres Dance
The Phrateres Dance, to be held
early in February, at the Alma
Academy, is attracting much interest.
A Leap Year dance, it will enable
the girls to repay their escorts who
have, in the past, been footing the
bill time after time.
Members of Phrateres are reminded
that there is a notice on the board
which they should sign if they contemplate, attending the party. A large
attendance must be guaranteed before the committee can complete th\j
plans for the dance. The cost will
not be more than a dollar a couple.

Peter Disney and Dorwin Baird will uphold the affirmative of the resolution:
"that Canada's Foreign Policy
should be one of complete isolation," when they meet a debating team from the University of Manitoba in the Auditorium at 3:45 o'clock on Friday afternoon;
This debate will be one of four on
the same topic. Each of the four will
take place on rriday—one ln each of
the four Western Provinces. To win
the McGouan Cup the Thunderbirds
must triumph both at Edmonton and
at Vancouver.
Should they not be the only team
to win two debates this Friday, there
will have to be a final debate about

FRATERNITIES • - TO THE FRESHMEN
WHO WERE BID
Now that rushing is over, and the fraternity or fraternities that want you have given
you a bid, a period of two days ensues in
which fraternity members are forbidden to
speak to you, and during which time you must
determine which way to go, or whether not
to go at all. Here, unbiased as we can make
it, is the issue.
You have just been rushed, and probably
enjoyed it immensely. You will feel grateful,
of course. You should not, however, feel under any obligation after it; for the same
attention is bestowed on all prospectives,
every year, as a matter of course. Do not suppose that you will be treated with such flattering and aggressive fraternity after you join:
you will be on the other side of the fence then.
Whatever has been expended upon you in
attention and money now, you will be expect
ed to bestow upon the rushees of next term,
and the term after, and so on, twice a year
as long as you are at college.
Many fraternities will tell you they themselves consider {he rushing system an evil
This is a salutary attitiude—only they will offer no workable substitute. A few fraternities
concentrate almost their whole energy in this
perpetuating themselves, and so their true
function is forgotten. That is drawback of
the less flourishing fraternities.
Nominally, the chief virtue of fraternities
is friendship. That is a fine ideal, but unhap
pily, while fraternities will help your cultivating friendships in one group, they will tend
to alienate you from other groups. This is particularly true in the case of close persqnal
friendships, unless your friend is also bid.
Actually, the chief virtue of fraternities is
two-fold: they offer an attractive substitute
for home life to the out-of-town student, if he
is able to board at the frat house; and also,
they provide you with a good means of working a few more dances and such into your college year, if you have the money and inclination. ,
As far as money goes, expenses vary considerably with the different groups. Poqkets
and ideas of value differ too widely for us to
comment here: this must be your own concern.
To those of you who are not keen on joining, rest assured that there is no stigma attached to remaining independent. Fraternities
are not a social necessity, as they may be in
the States. Of the 1900 students at U. B. C,
loss than twenty-five per cent, belong to fraternities and sororities. There are many other
clubs on this campus to engage you otherwise,
if you so wish.
To those of you who are keen to join, a fraternity, we would stress the supreme importance of joining the right one. The right one
is not that which has rushed you most lux-
iously or insistently, but the fraternity whose
members you think you will like best. Men
whose interests are your interests. If you have
no bid from such a fraternity, it is far better to
turn down the bids you have. Such an action,
when you see that the right fraternity hears

THE PORTRAIT OF EZRA POUND
At once he came
and is yet among us
Moving, moving before the unchanging stillness
With the unvarying movement of the gods.
Worn, and looks pale, as Dante would
look
If he were not Dante.
And yet he is not Dante,
,   there is that darker wisdom
Lone perhaps sad never wanting . . .
Pluto out hell must call him to His side;
The dogs bay loud and yet he turns
away,
turns away;
Turns to the hills and cries not
Cries not out against the wind!
Not against the sea, the blinding waters
And the eternal grinding
of the harsh cliffs, the retching precipices
Flung o'er unarched water.
Or against the crude arbutus
Swung through unconstant air
wrenched from the parched wind
Hot and dry wind that rustles
them   and   holds   their   sun-smoothed
arms.
Now they are torn away
No longer intact but in the sticky grasp
of not our time, but of another time
are held and woven
And thus remain, remain thus aye 'the
mellowing year.'
Not; not against these does he cry
for that he cannot weep
Not against the sun, the cruel light.
But against these men,
and then he turns to the hills
and goes, and yet;
and yet
This that he sees.
That he hears
the cliff grind, the far sea-surge
is but a leaf.
It is but a leaf, scurf of the morn ice, gutter
of the blue gas-flame.
Of it is a fragment of the broken statues.
Or the crumbling lime, plaster from the walls
Then Browning's plaster.
And yet; and yet there is in his eyes
That ever light, and then the sudden withdrawal
Yes, the world drops from his hands
And I turned away
Could look no longer, but there is . . .
THE MUSIC LECTURES
Allard de Ridder will give his first lecture
on musical orchestration and form tomorrow,
Wednesday, January 15th. This non-technical
address may be heard at 3:30 p.m, in Applied
Science, Room 100.
He will speak of the stringed instruments,
their part and purpose in the symphony, illustrated by playing. Mr. de Ridder will himself
demonstrate the violin and viola, Mr. Perkins
of the symphony demonstrates the Double
Bass work, and Miss Elsje cle Ridder will play
the piano.
Mr. de Ridder is presenting these lectures
in recognition of students' support of the symphony concerts, and will not himself accept
payment.
All students should attend. Mr. Walter
Gage has made great personal effort to secure
such valuable service to the undergraduate
body.

upperclassmen are rushed (at the start of the

Whatever your choice, be sure not to let
your better judgment be overwhelmed by attentions paid during your rushing.
Around The Campus
By Darby
This little episode takes place in
n Phil la class on a certain bright
Wednesday afternoon. Seated in the
back ro'W is a certain soph—we won't
say he's well-known but he is anyway. In front of him is a row of
girls who are, seemingly, minding
tiieir own business. The soph's big
fevt are dangling down in front of
him and reaching well under the
ladies' scuts. All of a sudden there
?. a slight skirmish. One of the girls
makes t quick movement with her
hnnds and the soph utters a sharp exclamation, "Hey," he says, "that's my
garter  you  pulled!"

There is a new menace on the
campus which this columnist can
claim the credit for uncovering, It
is u club called the IRC—not the International Relations Club. The IRC
has for its members only the outstanding students on the campus but
the aims of the club are not so outstanding. Although I have not as
yet completed my investigations I be-
liovo the IRC is morally a bad influence for the University and should
be run off the campus. It Includes
as members a prominent Student
Councillor, a popular journalist, two
debaters and several others active in
student affairs.   Down with the IRC.

Music in the Pub Office has become refined. Whereas, before
Christmas, the popular tunes were

Love." "Rose Marie," and "Drink to
Mo Only With Thine Eyes" fill the

An amateur on Major Bowes' pro-

after conducting several tests, we
found that John Cornish also has that
ability. After someone sang a certain  note.  John   immediately   identi
fied the pitch and was correct every
time.
Still in the musical department, we
learn that Hadyn Williams, the Musical Society conductor, has informed
tha Production Manager, Jayne Nimmons, that, during the preparation
and production of "Pirates" there
must be no back stage romances or
colds. It'll be easy to avoid the colds,
but, with our experience of amateur
dramatics, we belteve the romances
will be difficult to keep away from.
Further orders say that the musical
lads and lassies can not smoke until
the show is over, Which only goes
to show that it's awfully nice to be in
the 'audience.

The controversy over the Vigilants,
the question of American Football

ARTSMEN-YOUR FUTURE
ARTS—the very name sounds hollow

Man the pulpits, teach the schools,
From such as these choose your

Or do odd jobs for engineers.

THE   UBYSSEY
Page Three
By Dorothy Cummings
This time ten years ago the
campus was engaged in bitter
civil strife. A vigilance committee (the original form of the
present discipline committee)
had been appointed by council
without the consent of the students. To add insult to injury
the names, of these ten detectives, mildly termed vigilants,
were kept secret. How was a
student to know exactly when
to do what?
A muss meeting was called to decide whether the vigilants should be
abolished and an "honor" system substituted or things should be left as
they were. A front page editorial defined tho "honor" system in this way:
"Let us draw up regulations and mutuary agree that who breaks a rule
is so lacking in moral sense that trust
cannot be placed on his honor" . . .
then what (?). Editorial opinion was
however, that "the vigilance system
offered no encouragement to that
discipline most needed in a university—self discipline.
Much discussion marked the meeting which was the best attended Alma Mater meeting in the history of
the university. One speaker denounced the vigilance committee on
the grounds that "it was against all
ethical principles, the students were
regarded as criminals and the vigilants were little better than stool
pigeons!" Council defended the committee, saying that It was "an honor
system of ten men" which of course
is much more efficient.
According to records the students
were willing to retain the present
system on condition that the names
of   the   vigilants   would    be   made

Diary, I NEVER heard Anything
LIKE it in all my LIFE! Do you
know that a freshman came back
from a rushing party on the island
with a disLOCated NECK!
And another from the same party
was throwing EGGS at a car on the
CAMpu3.
I's SO disappointed. I bought a
lovely new tailored suit at Anne Maloney's to wear to the McKechnie
Cup Game. And now it's been Post-
PONed, And I won't get a chance
to show off my suit till FEBruary.
Well, anyway, it'll still be a hit with
Jack. I NEVer get anything from
Anne Moloney's that isn't. And then
I can still make that downtown girl
known. Council, sensing a victory,
railroaded through a motion to the
effect that the committee should bs
retained and then left without benefit of adjournment before the second
motion could be made.

DON'T WANT ADS
The students in 1926 had a much
more highly developed artistic sense
than students today. Some considered
that the presence of advertisements in
the Ubyssey was quite unattractive
"The publication has not the finished
appearance it would have without
such extraneous matter." A small
ballot appeared on the front page requesting readers to vote for the removal or retention of these offending items. For financial reasons the
artistic sensibilities of these students ,
had to be disregarded.
• •  •   •
Those students on the campus who
look particularly attractive In paddy
green were born ten years too late.
An item appeared in the students'
council meeting notes of Jan. 12, 1936:
"Council's attention was drawn to the
fact that many freshmen returned to
the spring term without their green
insignia. Freshmen in fault will take
notice that the wearing of regulation
green ribbons must continue 'til the
end of the spring.
jealous when she sees me in i,t. But
I DID want to wear it Saturday. And
Anne Moloney's have some sample
dresses in . . the LATest styles.
Three boys from the campus got
jobs us supers in the Ballet Russe,
and in the HARem scene. ■ I think
they ought to be aSHAMed of themselves, REALLY I do.
The Senior Class party Is coming
up soon, and I must have something
to wear. Anyway, I've got one of
those lovely seamless corsets. And
with a lace top. Marion Brown's
Corset Shop has a full line of them
from "?1.95 to 17.50.
Diary, I've just found out that the
Alumni Players are taking up a collection to give a prize to Dr. SEDGE-
wlck for the best individual acting
in the Alumni Plays, after the third
play.
I hear that the seniors are going
to have their class party at the Blue
Goose. I Do hope they do! The
Blue Goose is the natural place for
me to go evenings now. And if they
do I just KNOW I'll have a swell
time.   The floor is one of the best.
The last thing I did before going
home was to get a blouse for my
new suit. The Lingerie Shop is right
on my way from downtown. So I
just parked the car at Twelfth and
GranVillo and went ln. And I got
just the thing. It matches my suit
perfectly.
Do you know, diary, there was a
feegee who had to go to TWO sets
of lectures while a co-ed was down
south. And take ALL the notes for
her.   I CAN'T find out who he WAS.

Brynelsen Back
From Conference
A program of debates for the next
two years was drawn up at the meeting of the National Federation of Canadian University Students held on
the 26th, 27th, 28th of December at
Kingston, Ontario. Bern Brynelsen,
president of the A.M.S., represented
U.B.C. at the conference. "An interesting angle to debaters was a proposed tour of a debating team to England .this will undoubtedly take place
within the next year," stated Brynelsen.
Further business of the conference
included a survey of various types
of student governments, intra-mural
sports, and a plan of Insurance covering university students. The various types of student government were
discussed with an aim to find the
type that had proved the most successful and to suggest to members
present, changes they might make at
their own universities. Of particular interest to U.B.C. was the discussion of the intra-mural sports.
'iMany ideas were gained that will
be instituted in our new program of
athletics," stated Brynelsen.
NO WOMEN HATERS
When questioned about the representative from one of the prairie provinces who was rumoured to bring
about the Institution of the Women
Haters' Club Brynelsen said, "At the
end of the conference there was still
only one member of th dub."
The Federation was organized some
years ago to promote the interests of
Canadian Universities and to further
inter-university activities. Its meetings are held every second year and
representatives from all Canadian
Universities are called to the conference. At the last meeting held in
1933 Mark Collins represented U.B.C.

CONVENTION
(Continued from Page 1)
to provide relaxation from the intensive study of world problems demanded by the conference. These Included international teas, banquets, a
play, concert and a special New
Year's Eve celebration. Dally seminars and a series of briliant addresses
given by such distinguished personalities as the Archbishop of York,
Kagawa, T. Z. Koo, MacNeill Poteat,
Rheinhold Niebuhr, John R. Mott and
Baez Camargo formed the main program.
A FEW SNAPSHOTS OF
THE CONFERENCE
Rheinhold Niebuhr, tall, lean and
dynamic, and recognized as one if
the outstanding thinkers on the American continent, gave the opening
address. After likening the nations of
the world to a group of gangsters restrained only by mutual distrust Niebuhr mode the following comment:
"We face the decay of our civilization simply because our social mechanism doesn't guarantee sufficient
justice. We live under a system
more perilous and greedy than that
of the Middle Ages. Our first problem is not to consider how we may
love our neighbors but how we may
guarantee them justice."
The Archbishop, genial nnd humorous', possessed of penetrating insight
not only into the spiritual, but also
through his connection with the British Labour Party into the material,
was a great favorite with the students. Staunch Englishman though
he is he could not resist a sly dig at
his countrymen: "The English have
their own peculiar brand of Pharise-
ism." he said. "They thank God that
they are as other men are."
Dr, T, Z. Koo. cultured, intellectual
and eloquent, Rave a briliant presentation of China's problems, stressing
tho rising tide of nationalism and
Western materialism. "China today
faces tho temptation to soe the Western mastery of science as the only
key to life."
MEET DR. KOO
Our delegation had tho privilege of
a breakfast with Dr. Koo—a small,
fascinating figure in his dark blue
Chinese dress, smilingly alert as he
capably handled our numerous questions.
Dr. Kagawa, passionate leader of
social reform, organizer of the Cooperatives which hnvo enrolled eighty percent of the farmers, and founder of thr Kingdom of God Movement
in Jap-in. pleaded for an understanding of his country. "There is a great
longing for peace in Japan," he said.
"Ninety-nine percent of the intellectuals do not trust militarism, though
that news is not sent abroad,"
E. MacNeill Poteat, a brilliant and
forceful lecturer, spoke on the attainment of a Christian world community: "Physical energies made
neighbors of the nations, but only
spiritual energies can make a community."
The delegates are planning a student meeting Thursday noon in Arts
100 at which Peter Disney of Parliamentary Forum fame, Bob McMaster and one or two others will
give a fuller resume of the Conference.
Students are informed that a
ruling of the Discipline Committee prohibits the distribution of Ubysseys from the Pub
Office at noon on Tuesdays and
Fridays. The ruling was made
to do away with the crowding
for papers that resulted last
term, and the Ubyssey staff
must comply. Papers are distributed all over the campus
on publication days.
If any building is not properly supplied with papers, the
Circulation Manager should be
notified. Left over copies may
be had from the Pub Office
after one o'clock on Tuesdays
and Fridays.

Lecture Starts 12.25
Vancouver's Chief of Police
has kindly consented to address the students tomorrow
in the first Vocational Guidance lecture of the term, on the
broad subject of police administration and operation, pointing out the opportunties it
holds for University students.
Apart from the subject, with its
particular interest, the opportunity of
hearing this speaker is one which the
student body should appreciate. Many
of Vancouver's most prominent business leaders are being brought out to
the University through the medium
of these talks, and the undergraduate
whose future career is at all uncertain should take advantage of this
first hand information which is made
so 'easily available. The Alumni Committee cannot help believing that
many of the undergraduates who will
be seeking employment in the near
future will realize too late that these
talks are of definite assistance in the
serious problem of deciding one's vocation.
MANY ACTIVITIES
Few men in British Columbia have
made names for themselves in aa
man yactivities as Col. W. W. Foster,
D.S.O., V.D., A.D.C. He has been
railwayman, contractor, construction
man, politician, soldier and now Police Chief. He was born in Bristol
in 1876 and arrived in Canada hi 1894.
He entered the service of the Canadian Pacific and by 1908 was assistant superintendent at Revelstoke. He
left to become managing director of
lumber companies at Revelstoke and
also branched into politics. Two years
later he was B.C.'s Deputy Minister
of Public Works, and then he resigned to move permanently to the
Coast where he ran successfully under Premier McBride for the Islands
constituency.
Soon the War broke out, and enviable indeed is the war service record
of Vancouver's Chief of Police. To tell
a long story ln a very few words,
he enlisted in 1914 as a captain, and
by the end of the war he was a brigade commander. He was wounded
twice, mentioned ln despatches five
times, was awarded the D.S.O. with
two bars, the Belgian Crolx-de-
Guerre with Lion and the French
Croix-de-Guerre with gold star.
Since the war he has been assistant
general manager of Evans, Coleman
& Evans Limited, and later President
and Managing Director of Pacific Engineers Limited.
Once again may we recommend
these talks to the undergraduates as
a very easily accessible source of first
hand information on a variety of occupations. The general knowledge
and sound business advice contained
in then cannot help but be of real
assistance to ievery student who expects to be seeking employment within the next year or two.
NOTE: Please be on time (12:25) —
consider the speaker.

SIX U.B.C. PLAYERS MAKE ALL - VANCOUVER
Big Bad Wolfe
Proves Too Big
For Varsity
Signs For St. Saviours
Manager Stradlottl of the Varsity
Soccer Club today confirmed the sad
rumor that Captain Bill Wolfe haa
signed for the St Saviour's team of
the Intercity League. His transfer
form haa not been signed as yet, but
the manager says he does not wish to
stand in the way of any player's ambitions and that he will not object
at all when and if the form ia brought
to him.
Wolfe's departure will be a severe blow to the Thunderbird soccer team since his stellar playing if
about all that has been keeping the
soccer boys from following in the
footsteps of the basketball and football clubs.
Dr. Todd, president of the soccer
club, has not been consulted as yet,
but he is in sympathy with the manager and also hopes for the best.
Whether the A.M.S. regulations bar-
raing Varsity students from playing
on other teams will be enforced in
this case or not remains to be seen.
John Harrison, president of Men's
Athletics, says, however, that Wolfe
will be in immediate danger of losing
all student privileges if he carries
out his plans to desert the Thunderbirds for St. Saviours.

The Senior Soccerites had a rest
this week-end when their game was

played against the Rosedale Tigers

played the best game this season and
deserved to win.

Fratmen Bowl
Free On Friday
Well, at last it seems that the frat
men are to be given the chance of
playing a game a little more violent
than Heidelburg or battleships.
The versatile young manager of
LaSalle Recreations has noted enthusiasm with which the Fraternities
have shown in the past few weeks on
their bowling parties. He has felt a
kindly interest towards them and on
Friday of this week all the fraternities are going to be his guests and
will receive their bowling gratis. The
different fraternities will vie for
honors and in this way inter-fraternity competition will take place. It
is rumored that a inter-fraternity
bowling league is to be formed, so
„!, ] get out and do your stuff.
Pack your bags and follow the
Thunderbirds to Victoria, for Friday
17th is the date set for the second
annual inter-city indoor track and
field meet The Kiwanis Club, sponsors of the meet, will again use the
Bay Street Armories, scene of Varsity's win last year, so if you can
spare the money, book your passage
now.
Ths Blue and Gold team are stronger than ever, and in spite of having
only one meet so far, the able coaching of Percy Williams has more than
made up for the lack of competition.
Regular practices have been held in
the gymn, and the boys have been
waiting for an opportunity to demonstrate their strength.
The Varsity team is composed mostly of rookies, with only five men who
have run for their Alma Mater in
previous years. Victoria pin their
hopes on the old faithfuls, Addison,
Dale and Cunningham, and the whole
team are well experienced in indoor
work. These Victoria lads are real
competition. U.B.C. is sending a
small tet.m, but a very versatile one.

Forsts Take
Close Hoop Tilt
Saturday
Win 36-32 In Last Moments
Of Game
Playing the best brand of Basketball they have shown this season,
Varsity's Senior A Hoopers lost a
heart-breaker to Forsts' of the Community Loop, 36-32.
The Thunderbirdmen, who were
cheered on by some 20 or 30 loyal students, showed that they really had
learned something from their Southern tour, by repeatedly bewildering
Forsts', using a systematic attack and
scoring from close in. Not to be outdone by the fighting Collegians, the
Radiomen held a shooting practice
from away out, scoring long shots
with monotonous regularity.
FORSTS HELD 9-4 LEAD
Right from tha first tip-off the
game was a ding-dong battle, the
lead changing hands continually, with
never more than five points separating the two teams. Forsts' held the
biggest lead of the game after about
five minutes of piny, when through
baskets by Martin, Wybourne, Neil
and Moore, and a free shot by Fisk
they went in front by a 9-4 score.
But theii comfortable margin wa9
short-lived, Blue and Gold squad
scoring two quick baskets to make
the score 9-8.
About half way through tho first
period, Wybourne of Forsts' brought
a chorus of "ohs" from the crowd,
by knocking the ball up from n scramble of players under his dwn basket,
and helplessly watching the shpere
rim the hoop, thankfully retrieving
it as it bounded to the floor after
failing in its mission of donating 2
points to the U.B.C. team.
HALF-TIME SCORE 17-16
For the rest of the first period, the
teams matched basket for basket, and
continued to check like fiends, the
half-time whistle blew with Forsts'
tn the lead by a single point, 17-16.
The second period found the teams
again battling on even terms, with
the play continuing at the same
break-neck speed. Both teams were
striving desperately to gain a big lead
and hold it, with neither succeeding.
With less than 5 minutes left to
play, the intensely interested spectators turned hysterical when Varsity's slim 2-ppoint lead was wiped
out by diminutive Chuck Holmes, late
of Adanacs, who tied it up at 30-all.
Free shots by Marsh and Ritchie gave
Forsts' r precious 2 points with only
3 minuter* to go. On the next play,
v/ith tho U.B.C. guards and forwards
playing well-up, Don Moore made a

point  leud—34-30.
The scrappy College men were not
beaten yet, and "Patty" Patmore's
prety one-hander left them a basket
down with about a minute to play.
Howevwr, it was not to be, for Don
Moore again scored on a smart solo
effort, and Forsts' walked off the
floor victors by a 36-32 score.
In the second and feature game of
the evening, Seattle Willoughby
Cleaners eked out a close 41-40 overtime win over Vancouver Province,
local leaders, The Seattle team
showed plenty of class, continually
baffling the Newsies by their speedy
attack, ar.d breaking up many of the
"Giants'" scoring plays. However,
the Province team kept right in the
fight by popping long shots, and effectively using their height to advantage.
Scores were as follows:
Forsts: Neil 4, Moore 12, Marsh 2,
Holmes 3, Wybourne 3, Fisk 1, Ritchie

SIX CHOSEN
Six of Varsity's fifteen are represented. Harry Pearson, Varsity's inimitable captain takes Vice-captain's
position on the rep. team. Johnny
Bird, chosen for the fullback position was known as a cinch for that
position for the past few weeks. A
choice which came as a slight surprise was that of Al Mercer on the
three-quarter line. Although Mercer
does not carry much weight he has
shown outstanding speed and ability
to use his head. Senkler, Maguire and
Harry Pearson, Varsity's old timers
and heavies were practically assured
of their positions on the forward lines
some weeks ago.
Dave Carey, one of the soundest
players in the province, due to his
experienc won the edge of young
"Rusty" Goepel.
The Rowing Club came next to Varsity with five men chosen as representatives, North fShdre have two
and Occasionals two.

As the powers that be have at last
seen fit to grant the outstanding desire of the co-eds for a physical education instructor, we now have Miss
Moore on the campus.
Miss Moors has had a great deal of
experience and is a pioneer in this
field. She received her training at
Margaret Eaton College and Harvard.
E'or the past ten years she has divided
her time between Vancouver and Toronto mostly. She was an instructor
at several private schools, at Central
Technical High, and at Margaret Eaton College in the latter city before
she came west. Here she was in
charge of the Y.W.C.A. Moving to
the east again, she was appointed director of recreation for the T. Eaton
Company in both Toronto and Hamilton. There, this busy lady had ten
thousand young women to supervise.
ESTABLISHED MOORECROFT
Again coming to British Columbia,
Miss Moore started Moorecroft, an
organized camp for girls; the first in
Western Canada, although the east
had enjoyed them for fifteen years.
Many U.B.C. women have attended
this delightful camp which is situated
on Vancouver Island.
Miss Moore is intensely interested
in all sports but admits that her favorites are canoeing, swimming, camp-
Gertrudc E. Moore
ing badminton and golf. She believes
in teaching games which one can
play after graduation since, according
to the economists, we are going to
have \\\ the future much time for rec-
reatiwi and we must have some sport
to fallow then.
After making a complete survey of
the situation at U.B.C. in regard to
sports for women, Miss Moore has decided   o adapt her work to the aver
age co-ed and show her how to become proficient in her favorite games.
To make the gym classes more interesting, she would like to chart the
women's posture and show them how
to gain a perfect figure. Also there
will be games which lead up to the
more difficult ones such as basketball, etc. In these games, teams will
be arranged for inter-class games.
Miss Moore intends to make the
physical training classes so enjoyable
and full of fun that nobody will want
to miss them,
GROUP CLASSES
Besides these things, she would like
to teach a group theory; that is, the
part that physical education and
health take in our life. Also she
wishes to emphasize the permanent
value of athletic training for play and
leisure. This course is of great value
to nurses and social service workers.
In addition to the gym classes, our
competent instructor is going to give
lessons in badminton and archery. If
enough women are interested, she
will try to arrange to teach golf,
swimming, folk dancing, games which
can be used in recreation work, and
even riding.
Miss Moore's policy is to try to give
the women the classes which appeal
to them most and from which they

will obtain most benefit later. All
that is up to the women is to do
themselves a good turn by taking advantage of these opportunities. Registration blanks may be obtained
from Dean Bollert's office. It is urged
that everyone register at once to enable plans for the completion of the
program to be made.       —NEVISON.
