Philosophers Meet
Wise Man of East
"The Banal Movement" waa the
subjeot ot a stimulating address
given by Rufl Effendi, of tha Unlvanlty of Beirut, Persia, to members
ot tha Philosophy Olub on Saturday
evening at the home of Dr. Wyman.
Tha speaker commenced by traolng
tha evolution of tha Christian ehuroh
through the centuries, maintaining
that lt cava unity to society, to king*
doms to religion and to the family.
During the Middle Age individualism,
though not killed, was subordinated
to tha state and church, whereas now
tha pendulum has swung the other
In religion, freedom ln ideas has
bean the cause of the present growth
of sects and the break-up of Christ-
Ian unity. The family has suffered
In exactly the same way, until now
religion Is no longer the basis of
family life.
The Bahal movement attempts to
solve the present day difficulties by
providing the much-needed principle
of unity. It will re-establish the basic
ideas of religion in human sooiety
and human relations. Abdul Bahal,
the founder of tbe movement, defined law as "those bonds that spring
out of the relations of Individuals
In society." Emphasis was to be
placed on the Idea ot the relationship
of Individuals to one another rather
than on tbe Idea of liberty.
Sooiety cannot exist without a central aim or Idea. This Idea is to
act as focal point for the different
elements of society. At present, we
have given up the religious idea ln
favour of the Idea of material prosperity.
Tha speaker went on to describe
tha Bahal attitude toward international law, stressing tha need ot
governing the relationship ot different states. International liberty, he
maintained, will exist only as a result of International law. It waa the
aim of the Bahal supporters to bring
about an International movement ln
the world, An International authority, like the League ot Nations must
be established to control international
In dealing with the religious Ideas
of the Bahal movement, Rufl Effendi
stated that many prophets have
existed in the world, among different nations, for the purpose not of
establishing new religions, but to reestablish the fundamental ideas ot
religion that have always existed.
Throughout the ages we have erred
from spiritual power, and crystallized
religion lu Institutional form. It was
the work of the prophet, to take the
old religion and again make It tho
source ot Inspiration. The essentials
of religion have always been the
same: the belief ln Qod, the hereafter,
the brotherhood of man and love.
Conditions in the life ot the people
change and make it necessary for
new prophets again to interpret
religion in view of changing conditions.
Religions were not basically different, tbe divisions being due not to
the teachings of the prophets but because of the people. Religion must
be made a universal factor. All races,
according to Bahai have certain
potential powers, and accordingly we
cannot judge them by the same
The Bahai movement, concluded
the speaker, was not to create a new
religion, or set up new principles,
but to re-assort old truths auch aa
the brotherhood of man.
At the conclusion of the address,
much diacuaaion followed, particularly over the queation of institutional
religion. After a hearty vote of
thanks to Rufl Effendi, the meeting
The second meeting of the University Students' Debating Union took
place on Friday noon, last. Owing
to the Interest already taken In the
Union by different organizations, the
Young Liberals have challenged It to
a public debate to be held In Wesley
Church on March 2. The meeting accepted the challenge, and pointed out
that the Union will endeavor to train
students In public speaking and de-
batnlg. All interested are Invited
to attend the meetings. Tho next one
will be held on Thursday noon In
Arts 106.
Players Club activities, in regard to
the ever Important Spring Play, are
now In full Bwlng. Ever since tho
Chriatmas holidays, various members
of the Club have been hard at work
perfecting lines and characterisations
for the elimination tryouts.
The play to be presented as everyone now knows Is the comedy, "Polly
With a Past," and the possible caste
haa now been brought down to the
minimum,  before the  final decision,
The play la one of considerable
interest having run for a year on
Broadway, at the Belasco Theatre
with Miss Ina Claire ln the title role
of "Polly." Whether the "Polly" ln
the U.B.C. production Is to be Dorothy
Mole or Hope Leemiug la the burning
queation. Miaa Leemlng is well
known for her ability aa an actress,
having taken prominont parts ln Victoria College productions, as well as
an important role In one of the Christmas plays laat year.
Mlas Mole, who is a Freshette, haa
displayed exceptional ability ln the
try-outs, and is known to audiences
as the Chinese Incense bearer In this
years' Christmas play.
The role of "Myrtle Davis" the high-
minded, somewhat blase, society girl,
who spends her time doing uplift work
to the neglect of her love sick suitor
Ib being contested for by Frances
Fowler and Bessie Hurst.
Other womens' roles are being
sought by Eileen Griffin, Cecelia Gar-
esche, Frances Madeley and Jean
The three leading male roles:
"Harry," "Rex" and "Clay," are being
sought by Philip Elliot, Alfred Evans,
Eric North, David Wadllnger and
John Billings. Other parts are still to
be divided between Gerald Lee, Bill
Masterson, Bill Kennett, Sidney Risk
and St. John Madeley.
Although none ot the cast is sure
of a part as yet, and there will likely
be shifting and changes, there is every
reason to expect a good cast, well
acted and thoroughly enjoyable production.
The play will be presented from
March 14 to March 17 in the Auditorium. After the close of tho spring
torm, the entire cast, accompanied by
the director, Prof. F. 0. C. Wood, and
chaperones, will go on tour through
the province until the end of May.

occurring in the last announcement of

Varaity and Victoria College basketball teams divided honors ut the Nor
mal gymn on Saturday, the intermediate 11 men's game going to Varsity 42-
17, and the College winning the girls'
game, 11-9 , In a fast league game the
Varsity senior U squad took the measure of New Westminster Adanacs 23-
17 to complete the evening's card.
In the opening fixture the Varsity
Intermediate B men were going well
and the invaders did not have a
chance. Nicholson opened the scoring
with a nice shot, then Horton added
another before Victoria replied. Victoria scored but Varsity continued to
score with machlne-ilke regularity to
make the half time score 14 to 6.
The aecond half found the home
squad going better than ever and soon
the score looked bad for the visitors.
Varaity scored almost at will, the
whistle putting an end to tho scoring
rampage with the score 42-17 for Varsity. Nicholson, Horton and Straight
were the scoring atars for Varsity
while Vandervoort shone at guard. For
Victoria, McQueen and the Poubister
brothers were the most effective. The

Science Team Loaea to Ex-King George in Titdall Cup
Final 15*0
The Scientlilc boys lost the Tlsdall cup Saturday when the hard- fighting Ex-Xing George squad took them into account with 16 points to nil. In
the intermediate game Victoria College crashed our own team 11 to 0 and
thuB proved conclusively that they are the superior team,
Science took the kick and drove the ball well into the baok area of tha
opposition. Play followed on the 25 yard line. Ex-Kings relieved to centra
field and on a loose cord through centre the Ex-Kings went over for the first
count. Niblo easily converted. The engineers seemed partly disorganised
and were not following the play fast enough. However, the scrum were
getting the ball back to Barratt time and time again. Estabrook waa taking his pass at full speed, and the next play found the home team close to the
Green and Black line, The Blue and
Gold looked good for a try when Fell
took the ball on the wing, but with
5 yards to go he was brought down.
The Ex-Kings relieved to centre and
looked dangerous until Bill Locke
brought down the opposition In a
heavy tackle. Logan drove the bait
well up the green and on a long line
out the east end squad went across
for their next try.
Murray took the klok and the ball
went, to the opposition's home area.
Science got right under the punt and
pressed the green pack hard, Farrittg*

fumbled a poor pass and the Ex-Kings

continued fast with Varsity showing
all tho aggressiveness but could not
get over. The half ended with a
scrimmage seven yarda out.
ln the next canto play stayed in
centre-field, following the kick. The
Scientists were showing plenty of
fight and working hard. The ball was
not going in straight in the line-outa
and scrums followed. Ex-Kings started a three run but Willis took the
opposition into camp. Locke kicked
to touch and the scene changed to the
enemy's home area. Sparks dribbled
closely followed by the pack. The
leather heeled out but the threes
fumbled and a cross kick put the ball
out of touch. The Green and Black

Gandhi is Subject
of Murray Brooks
"We've had enough ot exploitation,
enough of domination and patronizing
service; what we want Is sympathetic
co-operation." These words were the
conclusion ot Friday noon's address on
Gandhi by Mr. Murray G. Brooks. Mr.
Brooks, a graduate ot McGiil, has been
for fifteen years In Y.M.C.A. work in
Ceylon and ia now General Secretary
of the Student Christian Movement in
Mr. Brooks began tracing Gandhi's
early life. Gandhi, who is now fifty-
eight years of age, Is the son of the
prime minister of an Indian province.
Gandhi came Into prominence in
South Africa whero he pleaded the
cause of Indian suffrage rights. The
South African War gave an opportunity for success but his magnanimity
held him back and instead he entered
the British army.
In 1914 Gandhi went to England and
enlisted Indian students into an ambulance corps. Again in India he went
about the country recruiting and largely as a result of his efforts India sent
to tbe war over 1000 men. Tbe
Indians hoped that their loyal support
of the Empire would win self government for India but they were disappointed.
Certain unfortunate happenings resulting from the Indian's antagonism
to the Defense of the Realm Act swept
away hopes for success. Riots began
in the Punjab aud three white men
were killed, with Ilie result that martial law was proclaimed. Three thous
and Indians gathered In Aiiirltgiir in
a meeting of protest, and were tired on
without warning by troops under
General Dyer. Indignation on the part
of the Indians was the natural result.
L'mler Gandhi, students and many
of the intellectuals formed the "Nonviolent, Non-co-operative" force for
two years.
In 1921 word was sent that unless
home-rule were given all India would
go on strike. No answer was given by
the Viceroy, and before Gandhi could
advise his people, riots broke out. In
the north
In desperation and hopelessness
Gandhi gavo up the movement. He
was sentenced for six years imprisonment. At the trial ho said he knew
he was playing with fire hut believed
he was performing the highest duty
of a citizen.
Gandhi was released after two years
and although he has taken little part
ln public life since then, he is still the
greatest moral force in India. He haa
been hailed by his countrymen as
"Mnliiitnia," or "Groat Soul." Ills
charm, unfailing courtesy and thought-
fulness havo won the love of all those
with whom he has come In contact,
He has no sense of fear and the groat
sacrifices he has made of weulth, position und luxury appeal to the Orlentnl
mliid. ills blameless personal life has
been nn example to the pupils and to
his  many followers,
Gandhi will go down In history as
one of the world's greatost saints. He
Is ii protagonist of East against West.
India has been asleep for centuries
and now ubout ten per cent, of the
people have awakened to find India
In the hands of tho foreigner. This
ten per cent, do not want violence—
they wish that India ahould be given
nn honorable place in the British
Commonwealth of Nations.

An Alma Mater mooting has boon called on the pot it ion of several
students to pnat* a resolution against the forming of a Cuniidiiin Officers
Training Corps at this University.
We consider that n resolution to this effect is very drastic nt this
time of year, involving, as it certainly does, a motion of censure ou
tho Students' Council. If passed this will mean practically the resignation of Council. Since the Senate of the University has also passed
the CO.T.C, a motion of thia kind, if passed, will mean lack of cooperation on the part of tho students with the governing body of the
We do not wish to go into the merits or demerits of the O.T.C.
As long as it remains a purely voluntary organization we have no right
to question its existence. It has as much right to exist now us any
other voluntary organization on tho campus.
The people who have called this meeting should have voiced their
disapproval whon the O.T.C. whs passed by Council. These students
may be criticize Council for not bringing the question before the student body, however, general student opinion could not have done much
in any direction as tbe O.T.C. was already technically in existence.
Those who are responsible for this meeting should reflect tbe full
consequences of the motion of censure. We do not necessarily defend
(or1 disagree with) the O.T.C in any particular, but the fact remains
that as long as it is voluntary it cannot be questioned any more than
such organizations as fraternities and sororities.
Very little this year has been said about the Honour System.
Perhaps for this reason people have forgotten that such a code of
conduct ever existed. Certain it is that smoking, loitering and talking in the halls is becoming so popular that one would think no sort
of discipline whatsoever existed among the studonts. Even membera
of the upper years overtly break the rules which they are supposed
to enforce.
Another matter to which attention should be called is the rapid
way the coat-hooks in the library are disappearing, Once there
were many rows of pegs in shining array; now, however, there are
eonspioious gaps in the ranks. Students must remember that coat
hangers are not gymnasium equipment and thnt coat-hooks do not
make good trapeze supports.
The aoccer club has withdrawn its first team from competition in
the First Division, Vancouver and District League, and has recommended that Canadian Rugby Club take its place as a major sport.
We congratulate the Soccer Club upon their sportsmanship in doing
Every sport has its seasons of hard luck when it is unable to
keep up its usual standard. This has been such a season for soccer.
The interest of the student body in that sport—as pointed out in the
letter from the soccer club-- is waning. We are sorry i'or thi.*-'. We
believe that soccer is a medium through which the University comes
in contact with a large section of the public. It is a sport which
should attract whole-hearted support from the students. Despite
the generous recommendation on tbe part of the soccer club we feel
that no other sport can quite take its place.
We are confident that soccer will come back to its own. In the meantime it is to the credit of the players that they have had the good
sense to realize their position and the good manners to take such an
action. If every other athletic club in this University had the same
spirit of sportsmanship we would not see so much of the petty rivalry
that exists at present.
j  Correspondence
The Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
In view of the amount of interest
which is being registered within the
University on the question of the formation of an Officer's Training Corps
and the meagre amount of publicity
given to the development of this project we wish to put before the student body some facts which we consider Important.
At a meeting of a group of University men In December it was decided
to approach the government ln regard
to the formation of an O.T.C, Tho
council was approached to give its
approval of tholr efforts and endorsed
the following: "Hosolved that the
Students' Council go on record as
approving the definite formation of an
O.T.C." This action was presumably
based on tho very indefinite record
ln tho minutes of the A.M.S. ot February 20, 1926, which reads us follows:
"The chairman outlined tho situation
witli regard to the proposed gym-
Hi-slum. The students endorsed tho
inauguration ot nn O.T.C. as outlined
by the chairman." We can find no
record of the terms of the proposal
nor a motion of endorsatlon. In view
ot the date and the indefinite character
of the records, we do not consider the
council justified in giving its approval
without referring the matter to the
student body.
It has been assumed by a number of
the students thut the formation of an
O.T.C. will be accompanied by the
construction of a gymn by the government. Tho following is a quotation
from a letter received from the department of National Defence at
Ottawa: "I would not suppose that It
(tho proposed allotment) would of Itself constitute an incentive for the
erection of an expensive gymnasium.
The total amount which would bo
payable in any case cannot exceed five
per cent, of half the capitalized value
of the accommodation allotted by tho
University;" and Is limited to the
following figures: For each contingent of one platoon (50 men), $250.00.
To obtain even this the following
obligations, as laid down in the application form for an O.T.C, would have
to be assumed: "The authorities of
the University are prepared to recognize, without reserve, the various
regulations and Instructions issued, or
which may hereafter be issued for the
guidance and control of tho Canadian
Officers Training Corps and to further
to the best of tholr powers the objects
for which the corps Is formed. What
are these objects? We quote from the
same document: "The aim of every
university which furnishes a contingent for the CO.T.C. should be to
provide for the Active Militia."
Is the University ot B. C. "to further
to the best of its powers" the intellectual  development of its  students or
"to provide as many officers as possible for the Active Militia."
Your nervous energy it like the spring in your watch—it "make*
the wheeli go round." Strained eyes exhaust up to 50% of thii
nerve force. Normal eyes use about 10%. This explains why
glasses so often increase one's vitality, pep, snd tho ability te
enjoy life.

The Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
This letter is an explanation to
the Student Body of the steps taken
ln regard to the First Soccer team by
the Soccar Club. As you will probably
know by the dally papers we have
withdrawn the flrst team from competition In the First Division, Vancouver
and District League, Our reason for
taking this action is the lack of players of First Division calibre. Although
there are enough players ln tho University to snake a good team other
interests saom to be more attractive to
them. We have been having a series
ot misfortunes ever since tho start of
the season; we would get a toam together only to Iobo some ot the men
through various reasons, aa injuries
and the attractiveness of other sports.
Our withdrawal from the First Division is unfortunate not only to the
Soccer Club but to the University as
a wholo. Tho Soccer Teams, particularly the First Team, bring the University into contact wtth a large body
of the public which ordinarily would
Beldom hear of the Unlveralty, Soccor
as a sport does not seem to be attractive to tho Student Body as a whole,
and the lack of support is commented
upon, not only within but. without the
University. Realizing that we cannot
hold our place as a major sport, we
are going to move that Canadian Rug
by takes the place held by us now.
That it Is without doubt attractive to
a very large part of the Student Body,
wo know to our cost, and also believe
that It will continue In thnt way for
a few years at least. It has had success and wo are sure will continue to
have successes and be able to Justify
a position as a major sport, with credit
to this University.
Soccer has been attractive In tho
past and we are confident will again
become Just as attractive as It ever
was, but for the present we must step
down and let, some other sport try Its
We remain,
Yours truly,
Russell M. Logle, Mgr, 1st Team.

Dear Madam:
In view of the "down with tlio CO
TA'." agitation holng stirred up In
snnie i|iiarters I would like to stale a
few facts about the Ciinadlan Officers'
Training Corps.
Tin rtiiversll> of 11. I,', contingent
of the CO.T.C. has heen on the Canadian .Militia list for several years.
Technically, therefore, the CO.T.C Is,
and has heen for some time, in existence at this University. Furthermore,
Capt, Jordan of the Faculty haa for
several years been asked by the government to send annual returns of the
unit to Headquarters. All that Is needed to be done Is to get authority from
Ottawa to make this an active contingent. Steps have alreadv been
taken by M. D. 11 to that effect.
A meeting of men interested was
called on November 28, which heartily
endorsed tho proposed formation of a
U.B.C. contingent. Since then 160 men
have signed lists signifying their Intention of joining the unit. As 125 men
Is tho minimum strength for a contingent tho success of the organization
is assured.
On December 5th, the Students'
Council went on record ns approving
the definite formation of a Canadian
Oflicers Training Corps.
In January, the Senate of this University approved of the formation of
the CO.T.C. and appointed a committee to attend to the matter. At their
next meeting a permanent Military
Committee will be organized.
As for the gymnasium, tho Oovernment at Ottawa la prepared to pay five
per cent, of the capitalized value of
the accommodation annually. In addition, each CO.T.C. member will receive approximately 912.00 or over a
year, depending on his rank and
attendance, It has been estimated
that approximately $2000 a year can
be obtained in this way, and that sum
could be used for the construction ot
a gymnasium.
In view of the fact  that plana, ot
other bodies for a gymnasium have
been unsuccessful, it will be seen that
the O.T.C. members aro doing actual
constructive work for the Student
if any "campaign" for a gym is Instituted by the students, the efforts of
the O.T.C. cannot fall to have a good
influence on the business men ot the
city. On the other hand, the fact that
university students have rejected such
a scheme of self-help as the C.O.T.C.
proposal would count against any cooperation from Vancouver citizens.
The C.O.T.C. is not promising
miracles, but lt can say that it has
taken perhaps the only successful
steps towards getting some part of the
gymnasium funds. The gym, when It
has been obtained, will he used by all
students of the University, irrespective of whether they are O.T.C. members or not.
Ah regards tlie idea that the purposes
of the CO.T.C is to provide oflicers
for the Active Militia of Canada, I
might say that there is no obligation
whatsoever for any O.T.C. member to
Join the active militia.
Under the Canadian Military Service Act of 1917, which la still In force,
every physically fit male Canadian
from eighteen to forty-five (with
certain exceptions) is a member
of the Caviadlan Reserve Militia, and
in time of emergency can be called
out on active service. The O.T.C.
members have no obligations other
than this; although they will readily
obtain commissions in the mobilized
army. The present. Canadian army Is
based on the tact that conscription
will be put into forco when necessary.
Thus, every male Canadian citizen ia
obliged to fulfil his duties in time of
need, and lt is the further duty of
university men, aa leaders in peace,
to become leaders In time of national
As for "militarism," the charge is
ridiculous. The very fact that a man
understands how to drill, how to lead,
and how to shoot does not make him
anxious for war. Militarism, In my
opinion, Is the undue stressing of
military activities ln the stato; the
rule of the country by a clasa of professional soldiers, and the organization of a state primarily for war. In
nil thlngH, the Canadian citizen with
an O.T.C. certificate still believes in
peace, sees military affairs In a common-sense way, and does not assume
the proverbial arroganco of the traditional "militarist." He does, how
ever, remember hla responsibility In
time ot need, and haB prepared himself to assume lt.

One day as I was chasing butterflies
hither, thither and you on Granville
Htreet, a mild-looking man approached me and said, "Come,
Napoleon, your armies await you."
"Fool!" I replied. "Do you think
I am cras'y? I am not Napoleon, I am
Alexander the Great. But lead me to
the armies."
He smiled weakly, making me
positive that he was a b't gone and
gave me a pair of strange steel
bracelets to wear. To appease the
poor man and to overlook his error,
I donned them.
"Follow me, Alee," he murmured.
I followed.
Wo hoarded a large bus filled with
Varsity students going to New Westminster. Little did they realize that
they had the great honour of travelling with the great Alexander. When
we arrived, the driver announced,
"All change here for Essondale." I
was surprised that we changed and
ni'l the students
My guide conducted me to a large
hotel hy the name of "Asylum."
"Thoy have special rooms here," he
aald, "padded ones, with upholstered
walla, They are ever so much more
"Good," I responded. "I will make
It my palnce. Por this service, I
will reward you by giving you the
Governorship of Babylon."
The Inmates of the place crowded
around me gibbering and gesticulating, I smiled condoscendly on them.
After a while, one of them came up
to mu nnd eald, tn n whisper, "Be*
ware! The people who run this place
ure all oraiy, so be on watch for
auaplolntia actions. For Instance, they
refuse to allow me to look for the
Holy (trail, while they let Sir
Lnunoelol polish his spears."
"Fear not," t made answer, "Alexander will protect you."
A doubtful looking man next approached me
"('nniii wtth me, Caesar," ho aald,
"a centurion wlahen to speak to you."
He led inn lo a room and shoved
mu In. I think the man must have
been mad for no centurion was there,
I lea Idea, I am not Oaeaar. I began

Alexander the Great, had fallen Into

During that nlghl, my suspicions
were atinngthened further. About
half past one, my old friend, the

up mi a chair to apeak lo her at a

How I Killed My
English Prof.
It came over me all of a sudden
without the slightest warning. 1 was
sitting in an English One lecture and
wns having my head thumped as usual
when something awoke within me, I
suppose I went mad; and this Is not
surprising seeing that even a Freshman's skull cannot withstand a systematic thumping treatment given by
an expert In that art.
I rose suddenly and glared about
me. Then.I pulled out my pocket-
knife, openend lt and, with a scream,
sprang upon my tormentor, With surprising agility ho dodged, his face
paling. Then leaping to the door, ho
wrenched it open and lied. Like a
hound unleashed, I was after htm.
First be sought safety in the Upper
Common Room but I followed relentlessly. Round and round the tables
we tore, while the Imperturbable chess
players continued their games, Once
I clutched him but he wriggled from
my grasp and dashed away down the
Through crowds of shrieking co-eds
the pursuit went on. Exultation fired
my brain and red murder last filled
my heart. At Intervals I pantingly
shouted the Varaity yells. Once a
man tried to stop me but I hacked at
him and he shrank back. Down the
stairs and out of the Arts Building
my victim ran. Ho raced along the
cement walks towards the Library and
I followed doggedly. At a bend in the
path he seemed about to take a short
cut across the sward but a sign "Keep
off tho Grass" turned him back. As
be hesitated I almost got him but my
hand just touched his back.
Keeping one stride ahead, he flew
up the Library stepa. He almost fooled me ln the revolving doors by going around twice while I wont straight
through. But the doors were moving
too rapidly for him to get out and
I dived back after him. Unforunately
we were in separate compartments so
that for ten minutes we circled fruitlessly. At last he took a chance and
leaped away, I  followed inexorably.
In desperation he raced down the
Library steps and dived into the Lily
Pond. Shouting with exultation, I
waited on the edge till he re-appeared.
Then I pushed him under again and
counted the bright round bubbles that
streamed to the surface. Three times
he rose and three times I placed my
hand on his face and shoved him under. And at last the surface of the
pond grew calm and no more bubbles
The jury said I was Insane and sent
me to Essondale, but most of the
Freshmen refuse to believe it.

Senior Hoopsters
Vanquish Rowers
For the second time ln one week
Varsity Senior A Men's Basketball
team won a game by one point when
they defeated Vancouver Rowing Club
26-25 on Saturday night, Thla narrow
win came rather as a surprise to Varsity supporters as the Rowors have
yet to win their first game.
Varsity lined up ln their usual manner, with Grant* starting in place of
Paulson, and did not waste any time
in getting started. Grant shot a fast
pass to McEwen which the big boy
just dropped in the basket for the first
acore, and Grant followed with another the next minute. From then ou
Varsity just could not score. The
local boys hit tho back-stop innumerable times, but the bail fell everywhere except through the basket.
The Clubbers were more forunate and
ran In 13 points, chiefly through Falconer and Tuck, while Varsity could
only make one personal. Just before
half time Butler ran In n nice basket
to make the score at the rest period
13-7 for the Club.
After the interval, Varaity came on
determined to make up the deficit,
and Mayers scored before the referee's whistle had stopped. Falconer
made a nice basket for the Rowers,
then McEwen scored again for Varsity. Two more baskets by Falconer
gave the Club a 19-11 lead and the
College boys saw It was time to get
down to serious business. Paulson
made a pretty shot and Butler sank a
personal to add 3 points. Grant
scored again, but Tuck came right
back with a nice basket for the Rowers. Varsity were not to bo denied,
however, and baskets by Henderson,
Robinson and Grant at last gave them
the lead, with about two minutes to
go. Varsity then started to take
things easy, but a pretty shot by Fletcher gave the Rowers the lead once
Varsity supporters were becoming
very nervous, but Henderson came to
the rescue with two baskets in quick
succession to win the game. Varsity
needed both these scores, for Fletcher
scored again just as the whistle blew
to make the score 28-26 for the homesters.
Varsity—Grant 6, McEwen 4, Henderson 6, Butler 3, Mayers 3, Paulson
2, Robinson 2 and MacDonald.
On Saturday laat, Varaity Juniors
ateppad out to show what they could
really do. Superior at all polnta of
the game they handed the strong
Flrat Church aide a decisive trimming.
Varaity attacked from tha beginning
and Evana aoon acored a well-earned
goal. The torwarda continued to
ahow their beat form of the aeaaon,
Robaon leading the line In brilliant
atyle. Five minutes later, Robaon
headed a pretty goal from a perfect
centre by Fish.
First Church pressod and Stafford
brought down a man In the fatal area.
However, First Church failed to score
from  the   resultant  spot-kick.
Varsity took play to the other end
end Evans finished sparkling play by
the forwards with a third count. Half-
time—Varsity 3, First Church 0.
First Church opened the second
verae with a fierce attack, but the Varsity defense was on It's mettle and
withstood all onslaughts. Varsity now
took up the attack and, from a pass
from the left wing, McKellar scored
with an unatoppable ahot.
Flrat Church rallied but could not
beat three stellar defenders, Mac-
Kenzle, Stafford and Fernlund. Five
minutes from time Stafford was penalized for dangerous play and in the
ensuing scrimmage a Varaity defender handled the ball. Thla time First
Church made no mistake from the
resultant penalty.
Veralty'a heroes were aa follows:
McGregor, Stafford, Fernlund, Sanderson, MacKenile, Price, Fish, McKellar, Robson, Evana and England.
On Saturday last Badminton A
team again fought Its way to victory,
defeating North Vancouver 1 !>•!). Mis-
aes Pound and Lyle had the best score
for the Ladles' In their oneout-oi'-two

Dr. Nolan's address on "Line Coordinates" was both interesting and

was accorded a hearty vote of thanks.
Dr. and Mrs. Buchanan were also
thanked for their kindness in having

Editor of "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
On behalf of the executive of the
graduating class of '28, I accept the
censure of the Students' Council regarding the lack of chaperones at the
outing on Wednesday, January 25th.
I might add, howevor, that lt was not
our Intention to make this breach of
etiquette. Mr. and Mrs. Soward, Dr.
and Mra. King and Dr. and Mrs
Buchanan had received formal invitation to act as chaperones and It was
not until the morning of the excursion
that it was found that ail invitations
could not be accepted. The executive
then made every effort to secure
chaperones. Dr. Hoggs and Mr. Logan
as well as three other professors were
given last minute invitations which
wero unfortunately refused.
The Students' Council, however, in
whoso hands wo entrust all matters of
discipline were well represented, lu
consideration of this fact and because
ot the belief that members ot the
senior year would conduct themselves
as becomes ladles and gentlemen, the
executive did not feel justified in
cancelling the excursion,
Tho second half of the censure
reads and deplore the lack of discipline on the occasion, In this case
again the executive will accept the
censure of council if this resolution
was made by a body acting as representatives of student Ideals and traditions. If, however, the council is to
be considered as a group of individuals who partook ot the enjoyment
offered, thereby giving their sanction
to the conduct, without attempting to
assist in discipline, then I say frankly
that the censure has come from the
wrong source, and might well be reversed.
The phrase lack ot discipline could
be taken to cover a multitude of sins,
but if it Is appropriately applied in
this case it covers conduct which is
found at any university function. The
executive challenges council to prove
that the conduct of any member of '28
either on the dance floor or ln the
dining room was less becoming to a
university student than the conduct
of students at any similar University
function at which there are perhaps
as many as eight chaperones.
Such rumour as the Harbor Navigation Company will not accommodate
the University in the future are ungrounded. The Manager's last words
were most appreciative, in fact he has
sent a letter asking that we consider
him favorably In the spring for our
graduation picnic.
Let me repeat again that we, the
executive, apologize for the absence of
chaperones and wish to extend regrets
to those members of '28 who feel that
wo did not fulfil our obligations and

Saturday morning saw Varsity girls
meet Victoria College In a 11 tie. The
game was by far tho best of the year
I'or Varsity and showed a pretty bit
of stick-handling.
Tlie first period ended without score
for either side. At the beginning of
the second, however, Helen McGuIre
took a neat pass from Muriel Harvie,
who had brought the ball well up-
field, and followed lt right into Victoria's net. The game for awhile
seemed to have gone to Varsity* but
College picked up and things became
pretty hot. The College evened things
up when, on a corner, they managed to score on a splendid and unbeatable shot. The last few minutes
of play were fast, but. neither team
managed to score again.

In the Victoria College tussle the
Island boys put one over on the local
mudhens when they downed Rubs
Baker's team 11-0. Although, possessing a heavier aggregation the College
team presented a well organized
bunch and played a brilliant game
from the first whistle.
Following the kick, play went to the
local team's 25-yard lino and play remained ln this place with both teams
fighting hard. Varsity relieved to
centre field but lost tho advantage
when "Cubby" Godwin of Vletorlu
smashed through centre for thu first
Akerly received the kick and ran the
ball well up. Scrums followed, dribbling resulted and the College rushed
through for the next points whon
Hume of Victoria went over. Tho convert hit tho cross bur to bounce over,
The second halt was slow, Victoria
held the advantage and the forwards
pushed the locals back until liaine
again went over. Tbe visitors pro*
duced a brilliant three line whose work
was very effective.

The Varsity boxers are training
hard for the proposed smoker on the
18th, and possibly the Washington
mix-up sometime in March. Very few
of the last year's team remain and
others will be unable to fight due to
injuries. However, with several lightweights, welterweights and light
heavies turning out, the team will be
able to show some snappy work In
the square ring.
There Is some difficulty this year
in getting experienced men and the
time is usually too short to whip them
into shape. Promising material Is
shaping up fast and If the team goes
to Washington there is liable to be
some Husky skulls cracked. All fighters really interested should turn out
Mondays and Thursdays at 8 p.m.
There wllf be a meeting of the
Geological Discussion Club on Tuesday, February 7th, at 8 p.m., at the
home of Mrs. L. I. Fournier, 4806 6th

Messrs. J. L. Farrlngton and L. O.
