1936 "Totem" Will
Contain Innovations
Charge Of Two
The Totem Year Book of the
graduating class, will be published nearly in April, announced Margaret Ecker, editor of
the publication.
In spite of the handicap of mumps
which necessitated numerous changes
In staff the year book will be better
than ever. Numerous changes have
been introduced, notably larger and
more numerous photographs and
shorter articles. The scrap page, generally the most popular feature, now
occupies six full pages, and the variety of pictures range from glimpses
of theologs in the trees of Belch
Gulch to panoramic views of well-
known professors in action.
Throughout the book there will appear many new and fascinating
glimpses of campus beauty spots
taken by professional photographers.
Th'jSports section which was under
the direction of Dick Elson, has undergone many radical changes. A new
feature will be action pictures taken
during Varsity games.
The inside covers of the book will
be illustrated with a new set of etchings depicting campus scenery, These
will replace the traditional B.C. Indian subjects of previous years.
Only 500 copies of the annual will
be printed so all students who desire
a copy are advised to send their orders In to the Alma Mater Society office as soon as possible. The system
of waivers in force last year has been
abolished due to the Union Building
campaign. The price will therefore
be two dollars cash.
Assisting Margaret Ecker hive been
Pauline Patterson, Dick Elson, Bob
King and Ken Grant.

Compton /To Return
Dr. A. H. Compton, famous physicist
and discoverer of the cosmic rays,
will return to U.B.C. to give a public lecture in the Auditorium on the
night of March 21.
Dr. Compton spoke here January 25
and it will be recalled that several
hundred were turned away. The return address is for the particular benefit of those who were unable to hear
the renowned scientist at the former
occasion. The Vancouver Institute
lecture by Dr. Warren, originally for
March 21, will be heard later in April.
Eliminations for the Arts '38 team

Standard Types Compared By Prof. Finlay At Institute
"Design, fabric, and construction—
these three words contain the saga of
the building of any modern bridge,"
said Professor Allan H. Finlay, when
he spoke to the Vancouver Institute
on some of the most famous modern
bridges of the world. The lecturer
showed interesting pictures to illustrate the progress in length of bridge
spans, and to show the steps in the
"Wire Is the real miracle behind
the astounding cases of modern suspension bridges," said Fr. Finlay, as
he told how the vast new structures
were made possible only by marvellous improvements In the fabrication
of the essential materials. He stressed
also the part played by the draftsmen,
who have to work for many months,
making exact drawings of every part,

Professor Finlay spent most of his
time describing four great bridges—
the Brooklyn at New York, the George
Washington over the Delaware, the
new Oakland bridge in San Francisco,
and finally the Sydney Harbour
bridge in New South Wales.
The Brooklyn, started   in 1883   by
(John Robling, was the first suspension bridge.   The elder Robling was

Spring, Dear Children,
Is At Last With Us!
Spring has come, as it comes every
year, to this our campus. The crocuses push their tender blooms above
the so!'. *h: sci-tlc iain drozzles down,
the skybeams blue from time to time
and a loose, warm, expansive feeling
pervades the collective breast of the
student body.
Exams are but mere phantasms of
the imagination. It is nice aud warm,
and exams t-hould not be worried
over by people. Let there be slow,
contemplative walking tours about
the surrounding country, and swimming  from   Belch   Beach  as  has al
ready been attested in the return of
draggled young men to the campus
carrying wet bathing costumes.
1:30 lectures and labs have suffered
and will continue to suffer as the
warmth of the days increases. Spring
poetry^and literary supplements have
burst forth, and the Spring play
opens Wednesday. The end is approaching, and soon the pleasant bustle of the term will be stilled and
men of U.B.C. will go forth to become loggers and icemen ind gas-
station operators, increasing the intellectual and material progress of
the land.
Vive lc printemps!
Both Candidates
Approve Pass
Stressing the fact that student affairs were coming to a
crisis, Lex McKillop, supporting Jay Gould at the Presidential campaign speeches yesterday noon, stated that a President needed the power and ability to lead, outside experience
and maturity, and precious
Council experience. "Mr. Gould
is a member of the present
Council, has had the outside
experience, and, I believe, he
has the ability of a good lead-
Sam Roddan, speaking for Wilson
McDuffee, pointed out his candidate's
ability to work and co-operate. "He
is sincere, diplomatic and a persuasive
speaker," he stated. "If Mr. McDuffee
is elected tomorrow he wtil still be
Mr. McDuffee."
Jay Gould, in presenting his platform to the student body, 'aid down
three major planks. "Next year we
must create a renaissance in student
affairs," he said. In explaining how
this objective should be reached Mr.
Gould said that he would advocate
and do all in his power to institute
a student pass system whereby students would have admission to all major functions, thus putting the different organizations on a firm basis
and ensuring larger attendances. As
his second plank Mr. Gould proposed
raising the Alma Mater fee three dollars. "This University needs publicity to convince the people and authorities of the real worih of the
'In this way we may increase our
grant and secure endowments and it
is quite possible that to do this we
may have to employ a first class publicity man." "We will have to pay
for what we get next year," stated
Mr. Gould. In concluding he leferred
to the new extended noon l.our and
the need for further organization and
new euipment and promised lo do all
within his power to carry th;s out.
Wilson McDuffee opened Ivs election campaign speech with a poetical
reference to the Varsity-Washington
boat race and went on to second
Gould's proposal to investigate the
student pass system. He stressed the
need for direct and complete leadership and scored the spirit of the Faculty of Arts in comparison with the
Science-Aggie spirit.
In speaking of the Union Building
Campaign he said that a changed policy was needed. "There has been lack
of foresight in this campaign," he
said. In connection with this matter
he stated that there was a possibility
of a Bond. "I will accept this only as
a last resort," he declared. Closing
his address Mr. McfDuffee complained
of the five minute limit, saying that
he would like to speak for twenty
There will be no regular Issue of

Several Acclamations In
U. of Alberta Elections
By Arthur Eriksson
Union meeting was called last Monday to consider proposed changes in
the Student's Union Election Act.
The committee appointed by the Student's Council had submitted its report and the Council decided to call
a meeting of the students in order
to discuss Section IV of the proposed
Act which read as follows:
"The nominations of all enumerated offices shall he held •• ",o second Wednesday in October if the
University opening be a regular one.
In case of a delayed opening the
President of the University shall designate nomination day."
Under the present Act me e'ections
are held in the spring and it appears
that the students are satisfied with
that ararngement as so few turned
out to the meeting that it could not
do any official business. The idea
of changing the election date from
spring to fall received a death blow
when it was overwhelmingly defeated
in a plebiscite held the next day.
Nomination day is past and the candidates for the various Student's
Council offices are busy preparing
their speeches which are to be given
next Monday. Election day is Wednesday, March 11, and today's issue
of the Gateway carries articles telling all about the candidates and in
some cases giving their platforms.
There are a number of offices filled
by acclamation but there is a trio
running for the position of President.
Mr. W. R. Howson, K.C., a graduate of the University of Alberta, was
this week appointed as justice of the
Trial Division of the. Supreme Court
of Alberta to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of Mr. Justice Boyle.
Judge Howson had received his B.A.
and LL.B. degrees by 1916 incl was in
that year admitted to the bar. He

Fascists, Communists,
and U.B.C.
Despite troubled conditions closer to home,
the thoughts of all of us are turned to the excited affairs of Europe. We can only make wild
guesses, but one thing is certain, that the peace
of the world is being threatened by the actions of a triumphvirate of absolutes.
University students should make it their
business to keep well-informed in regard to
world affairs. We can look back to the last war
and the events which preceeded it to learn
many valuable lessons. We can take it for
granted that the news we read in our papers is
only half the story. That the secret meetings
and treaties that bound the nations of Europe
in 1914 are not absent from the scene today.
We have new treaties, but old, familiar conditions.
It is easy to find justification for many of
the actions of our dictators. Germany, a nation
disgraced, is attempting to rebuild itself. The
method chosen may be far from right, but then
again it may be the only way left open to that
hemmed-in nation.
Italy, with her plea that she did not share
the spoils at Versailles, can make out a good
case for her Ethiopian campaign. And it might
be pointed out that when Hitler raised his raucous voice on Saturday, II Duce ordered a cease
fire in Africa. He turned his eyes on the Austrian border, proving that Europe is still the
spot from which we can expect the most
Not that we are trying in any way to back
these two leaders, and their comrade, Stalin.
But it should be stressed that they are with
us because conditions forced their rise to power. A failure of democracy or autocracy brought
about a form of government which, in its very
newness, astonished and frightened the world.
The future holds one or two alternatives.
Either our dictators will modify their policies,
and remain in power with other nations copying their tactics; or the system that holds in
Germany and Italy will burn itself out after the
present squabbles.
Closer to home, we have a democracy that
is slowly struggling from a cricis. It looks very
much as if the much talked-of plans for local
revolutions wil be drowned in the rising tide
of prosperity. But the fact will remain that another depression might break the back of our
present system.
With democracies waivering, dictatorships
reaching a critical period, and the world spending a good deal of time condemning both systems, it appears that no one is satisfied.
The duty of graduates from our Universities
will be to evolve a government system in this
and other countries that will stand up under the
pressure of modern times. None of the present
"isms" will do. We don't want Fascism, Communism or any of the intermediate forms. But
something new must appear on the scene before the old systems crumble.
This rambling editorial seems to go from
nowhere to a similar spot. But it may serve to
interest some of us in the problems that now
face us, University graduates, with their wide

The rain was filling the street with unpat-

broken and mist making the light thick. She
went into the drugstore; and came out to go
home. But stopped to watch the cars. Holding unopened her package of gum, she went
from the curb and under the awning stood
against the show-case window.
The tires made a steady dull-spray sound
over the wet road. She did not turn her head
but separately saw each car in front of the
drug store. The girl faces smooth over the
deep furs and the whited scarves. A bus
stopped at the corner and left and she was
alone under the awning.
"They don't know . .. they don't know ..."
The tires made a steady dull-spray sound over
the wet road.
Quickly she put up her arm and turned the
sleeve to find her wristwatch and suddenly
walked to the curb and looked up for the sign
over the drugstore.
When the next bus left three other girls
came to stand under the awning. And she
went again to the curb and looked up for the
sign over the drugstore. And came back to
wind up her watch and listen to it.
"I'll   easily   recognize   the   car.     Hurry,
"They don't know ..."
But soon only a few cars and then only
once in a while. A bus stopped at the corner
and left and she was alone under the awning.
The rain falling on the street and the uneven
spattering fall from the awning. The sound
made a slight and uncontrolled shudder in her.

the lapels of her coat; and she turned to go

a life task to better the world in which they

job-but the attempt must be made.
A  week  from today  the elections
for Council positions will be held. As
is usual under our haphazard system
there is a  multitude of prospective
candidates for every  position,
Good or bad, how is the average
voter to choose whom to suport? Naturally the Ubyssey, as a paper, cannot take sides. The editorial and
news columns must steer clear of the
election issue—but there is nothing to
prevent a struggling columnist from
picking a few favorites.
So I'll hop off of the fenc?, stir up
a little old-fashioned election hate,
and then sit back and watcn the results . . .
In the closest contest of tiiem ail-
that for L.S.E.—John Logan and Alvin Rosenbaum are fighting it out for
the honors. In such a tight contest,
it might be wise to say, 'You pays
your money and you takes your
choice.' '
Logan, with experience in .he Ubyssey and Musical Society, is extremely
capable. To top it all, he is prexy of
Arts '37, in which position ha has had
an opportunity to get a knowledge of
many campus activities. His manner
is conservative, but his quiet energy
has carried him a long way.
Rosenbaum brings a dynamic personality and a manner not unlike
Gould's to the campaign. His experience in debating cannot be overlooked. An executive of Arts '38, he
is not lacking the knowledge or the
ability to hold down the L.S.E. job.
Perhaps the best way to sum up this
situation before it reaches a lull column would be to point out vhat u.S.E.
demands a man who is well acquainted with campus clubs and their operations, a man who has been l.eie long
enough to gain that knowledge.
Science has always had a representative on Council. This year's man
was practically assured when John
Witbeck entered the Men's Undergrad
contest. With plenty of executive
ability, he will bring to that position
experienced judgment. With the abilities of the other candidates considered, that judgment should win the
Dave Carey, despite the "come on
you chappies" attitude, is the logical
man for the Men's Athletic Rep.
Prominent in English Rugby and
Cricket in local sporting circles, there
is no doubt of his ability. It will take
a good man to Carey on the Harrison
Secretary—Pauline Patterson. Why?
Of those contesting the scat, she has
the most experience, the greatest potential ability and is the best fitted
for a secretarial position.
Clarence Idyll, with his record of
this year, should be returned to look
after the A.M.S. coffers again. Such
a position can be best filled by someone who has the actual experience.
Even if he did keep a wary eye on
the Ubyssey budget, there is no doubt
of the necessity of his being returned.
All of the positions haven't been
mentioned, but the contests which
promise to be closest have. As is usual
with prophets, I may be wrong—but
If I am, we can be assured of a 1936-
37 Council that will work together for
the good of the University.

Romantic Story Of
Big Bridges
work was done so well that the old
bridge still carries heavy tiaffic today,
Referring to the Washington bridge,
the speaker stated that it was one of
the finest yet constructed. The dream
of engineers for many years, it was
built in 1931 at a total cost of sixty
millions. Professor Finlay emphasized
its size: "There are," he said, "enough
miles of wire in the cables to encircle
the Equator at least four times, and
each tower resists a cable tension almost equal to twice the tonnage of
the 'Queen Mary',"

Francisco, and of the Golden Gate
bridge, which has the longest single
span in existence, the lecturer turned
his attention for the remainder of the
evening to the Sydney Harbour
achievement, describing in oome detail   the   construction  of  the  central
iarch. This arch was built i ut over
the water from two huge pylons by
large cranes, which were supported
by steel cables as they laid their own
tracks ahead in mid-air, some 600 feet
over the ocean. The engineers had
the greatest difficulties to contend
with when they attempted to close
the gap between the two ends, as the
steel framework would expand daily
many inches under the heat.   Many
(delicate adjustments were necessary
before the last piece was fitted in and
the project finished. "It stands," said
Professor Finlay in conclusion, "as a
great   and   fitting   monument   to  the
genius of Its designer and builder."

The Gateway representative asked for

Pauline Patterson,
To members of the Alma Mater
May I thank the Ubyssey for this
privilege of presenting my platform
for the position of Secretary of the
Alma Mater Society.
Since the Secretary represents no
definite section of the student body
her vote is impartial and therefore
requires familiarity with all phases
of student activity, coupled with a
special knowledge of secretarial
During my three years on the
campus I have participated generally
in activities. In particular my experience as- Secretary, first of Zeta
Phrateres sub-chapter and secondly
of the W.U.S., fill the necessary requirements. Work in Phrateres, the
Musical Society and especially on the
Ubyssey has made me cognizant of
student activities.
In matters of council policy I favor
(1) the revising of the existing Discipline committee; (2) the co-operative
housing system now under consideration; (3) that the proposed Introduction of the pass system admitting each
student to all games and major functions should be investigated.
In conclusion I wish most sincerely
to thank all who have shown their
confidence in me by supporting my
nomination and to assure irum that
if elected I will endeavor to be worthy of their trust.
Yours sincerely,
Pauline  Patterson.
Kay Scott,
To members of the Alma Mater
I take this opportunity to solicit
your suppport for my candidature as
secretary of the Alma Mater Society.
On the Student's Council the position of secretary, as also the position
of president and Junior member, represents the student body as a whole
and therefore requires an incumbent
with a thorough knowledge of all
student activities. I believe that my
executive experience gained from
membership in various campus organizations such as Treasurer of
W.U.S., chapter president of Phrateres
and on the Ubyssey staff makes me
fully qualified for this responsible
position on council.
If elected I will do all in my power
to interpret your wishes to the best
of my ability and to give unprejudiced opinion on all matters.
Yours sincerely,
Katherine Scott.

Betty White,
To members of the W.U.S.:
May I take this opportunity
thank my supporters who have nominated me to the office of Fresident
of W.U.S.
As vice-president of that body during the past year I have felt that two
main problems remain unsolved.
Thesa are: (I) The need for closer
cooperation among the various Women's organizations; (2) The i eternity
of creating University consciousness
among women entering the University for the first time. My efforts
next year if president of the W.U.S.
would be primarily toward a solution
of these problems.
Yours sincerely,
Betty White.

To members of the Alma Mater
I would like to submit my platform for office of Treasurer of the
(1) Careful yet not too careful
budgeting: ensure a surplus by carrying forward unbudgeted the previous years surplus, thus enabling
council to spend every cent of a
years income from fees and still show
a surplus; (2) Increase grants to clubs
and teams: the depression is rising
and each year more students are attending the University, this means
increased income and will permit increased expenditure without reducing
the carry over surplus; (3) Drive the
money-changers out of the temple. If
the A.M.S. concurs In the schema
being suggested by the retiring council to borrow our uncollected portion
of the $30,000 for the Union building;
he proposes to try to do it by paying
little or no interest on ths flotation.
The scheme is both self liquidating
and semi-public in character and the
government could probably be persuaded to act as intermediary between us and the Bank of Canada
absorbing the fraction of one percent
interest rate; (4) Co-operate in securing the pass system.
Yours sincerely.

Clarence Idyll,
To members of the .Alma Mater
In offering myself for re-election
as Treasurer, I do it with thc sincere
conviction of being able to serve the
student body to its advantage. Our
term is so short that too much time
is spent by each new Treasurer in
becoming acquainted with Council
work. I feel that several reforms are
necessary in the finance policy of the
A.M.S. and I would appreciate being
allowed to make an attempt to carry
them out, unhampered by inexperience.

To members of the M.U.S.
In seeking office of President of the
Men's Undergraduate Society, I wish
to submit the following platform:
(1) To havo the discipline committee maintain the highest standards of
conduct, both on the campus and at
University functions.
(2) To support the President in encouraging student activities on the
campus, that the longer noon recess
mny be of greater  value.
The first of these is a measure necessary to uphold the good reputation
of the student body in the eyes of
those outside the University. The
second musit take the form more of
a policy than of a platform promise.

As a candidate for President of
L.S.E. I submit the following platform:
(1) Encouragement of the activities
of the Players' Club under its. present
efficient organization and management.
(2) Closer supervision of the business affairs of the Musical Society.
The A.M.S. cannot afford to puy for
the big loss of the society this year
again. More adequate advertising is
essential if loss is to be avo'ded.
(3) Fostering of greater stduent interest in debating with better publicity in the part of the Forum. Revival of lnter-class debating nnd public speaking classes if interest warrants it.
(4) In general, encouragement of all
clubs under the executive. Their importance in the life of the university
Is not always realized.
In conclusion I would thank those
who supported my nomination. I believe the considerable experience I
have had in student affairs during my
three years on the campus will be of
use if I am successful in this election.

Alvin Rosenbaum,
To the members of the Alma Mater
Through the courtesy of the Ubyssey I take this opportunity to ask
your consideration of my candidature
for President of L.S.E.
(1) I feel that closer cooperation between the Students' Council and the
organizations under L.S.E. should be
fostered. Upon the activities of the
Players' Club, Musical Society and
Parliamentary Forum public opinion
is formed of the University as a whole
therefore they should all be aided to
a greater extent in their activities.
(2) That inter-class debating ond
public speaking classes be renewed.
(3) That the student pass system
should be carefully looked into
whereby each student is issued a pass
which gives admission to a!1 major
functions including plays, debates
and games.
I feel that the experience I have
had as Ticket Manager and then Vice
President and Debate Manager of the
Parliamentary Forum along with my
executive position in Arts '38 has
given me sufficiently broad background to assume this position of
Yours sincerely,
Alvin Rosenbaum.
Women's Athletics
Beth Evans,
To the women of U.B.C.
If you see fit to elect me to tne
position of President of Women's Athletic my first problem will be to try
to create a greater enthusiasm for
women's athletics on the campus and
and to make the campus conscious of
the W.A.A. I am strongly in favor of
bigger and better gym class organizations as started this year under Miss
Moore and would endeavor to do all
in my power to strengthen it. Another point I think the system of letter awards should be readjusted so
that the standard of the Small Block
ktter will be raised to a more important status.
Lastly concerning my vote on student affairs I would endeavor always
to cast my vote in favor of whatever
policies would benefit most tne student body as a whole.
May I extend my sincere thanks to
those who were kind enough to nominate me for this position.
Beth Evans,
Men's Athletics
Dave Carey,
To members of the M.A.S.
I beg to submit the following platform for election as President of the
(1) To foster inter-collerjiate sport.
(2) Still more intra-mural sport.
More organized and mon'.' people
(3) Bigger and better sport putting
athletics where they ought to be on
the campus.
(4) Use the Gym for Sport, not for
eating lunches.
Yours sincerely,
Dave Carey
George Crosson,
To members of the M.A.S.
I have no fixed platform but my
main policy will be to do my utmost
for the Alma Mater.
Yours sincerely,
George Crosson.
Junior Member
D. A. Lewis,
I wish to submit the following points
of my platform. I would float a bond
Issue to complete the remainder of
our quota for the Students' Union
Building. I would support the policy
of inter-collegiate athletic competition. I would support the policy of
providing an opportunity for the average student to enjoy physical education.
Thanking those who were kind
enough to nominate me for this office.
Yours sincerely,
D. A. Lewis.
John Light,
Those issues which to ms seem
most significant and to which I am
prepared to give my whale-hearted
support, are:
(1) Creation of a greater public Interest in the University. This can be
accomplished by students presenting
papers of interest to the various organizations in the city.
(2) Development of more inter-class
competition and more encouragement
to our athletic clubs by at least keeping their equipment In good condition.
(3) Completion of the Brock Memorial Building. I do not endorse however such procedures as asking the
students to raise $30,000 in three
weeks. Undoubtedly we need a Union
Building but I would advocate a preliminary "advertising" campaign before appealing for funds.
Although I do not guarantee the
fulfillment of this program 1 believe
that the experience I gained as President of the Students' Council at
King Edward High School and on
other executives will be a great asset in seeking its adoption.
John G.  Light.
Howard M. McPhee,
I wish to thank those who have
nominated me to the office of Junior
Member and to assure them and the
Student Body that if elected I shall
try to be worthy of their confidence.
I believe that too much cnnnot be
done to develop in the Freshman
class a real University patriotism. I
believe that much can be accomplished in this respect by:
(1) Continuing and extending the
services of the Frosh. Information
(2) Organizing an initiation program in the form of supervised contests between Frosh and Soph.
(3) By interesting the Frosh. in the
Union Building project.
If elected I will endeavor to exercise careful and unprejudiced judgment on all student affairs.
Yours sincerely,
Howard M. McPhee.

Varsity 6 • Vikings 2
Owing to experience from
conditions on the campus during the past few weeks, the
senior soccer squad were able
to feel quite at home in the
pouring rain and mud on the
field Saturday, and waded
along to the right end of a 6-2
score. Vikings were the opposition.
With Bill Wolfe still away, and
Sutherland playing his first game
after being in bed for four weeks,
Alan Croll further weakened the
squad by developing the measles at
the last minute, and Varsity's chances
looked none too good. Vikings, however, turned up with only ten men.
Two more of the Norsemen hit for
the showers before the end of the
game; this fact combining with the
weather conditions to give the Thunderbirds a decided advantage. Godard
scored twice for the students, while
Okuda, Chester, Sweetnam, and Mac-
Burney each got one.
Special mention should perhaps be
made of Sweetnam's score—n spectacular drive from the centre line after
a pass from the kick-off by Godard.
The ball is said to have gone so high
In the air that it was lost in the
clouds, splashed mud into the Viking
Goalie's eyes, and bounced into the
netting. This is the opinion held by
Dave Kato among others. Your reporter happened not to be looking at
the time.
Sutherland and Thurber took time
off to discuss their week-end  party
near the  end  of the game.    In  the
meantime a  few  Vikings sailed  into
the   goal-mouth   with    the    ball    to
double their score.

The Junior Soccerites suffered another painful treatment at the hands
of the Normal School Saturday at
Heather Park. With only ten men on
the field and even manager Fi ce playing, they lost two goals to r.one.
Colthurst Wins
In Fast Time
Hammersley Second
On Friday afternoon Paddy
Colthurst definitely established
his supremacy in the distance
events on the campus by winning the gruelling cross country race in the near record time
of 15 minutes and 54 seconds.
With weather conditions favorable,
and a fairly representative entry list
of eight, the race proved to be a
highly successful affair as was shown
by the enthusiasm of the crowd that
assembled on the mall to watch the
Owing to the recent weather the
course was abnormally soft, one field
in particular being more like a swamp
but despite this difficulty seven out
of the original eight finished.
At the commencement of the race
Johnny Kuhn took the lead followed
by Hammersley, Gerry Ward, and
Coltuurst. However within the first
half mile Paddy gained the lead and
Gerry Ward took second place, followed by Hammersley and Les Peterson. This order remained unchanged
until cramp forced Ward out of the
race within half a mile of the finishing line.
Colthurst breasted the tape with a
great burst of speed about a 100 yards
ahead of Hugh Hammersley of Science '37 who finished second. Les
Peterson finished third followed by
Johnny Kuhn and George Pringle.

Again the intra-mural basketball
enthusiasts of the Arts '36 and '37
classes tangled in the gym on Friday
noon at 12:15. This fast and interesting game ended in a victory for the
Arts '36 squad with a score of 28
points. The second game was between Science '39 and Science '38.
Science '39 won this game by default.
Class Totals:
Science '39, 873; Arts '37, 590; Science
'38, 500; Arts '36, 487; Aggies, 475; Arts
'39, 426; Science '37, 303; Education,
180; Arts '38, 165; Science '36, 64.
The head teams of the Gold League
are Science '39 and Arts '39 and the
head of the Blue League is Arts '37.
The results of the mall race brought
Arts '36 from sixth to fourth place
but this is the only change.

The Varsity Rowing Club has done   at a disadvantage because thoy were
its bit toward keeping up the fashion  unused to rowing on moving water
of the year by returning home with
reports of two defeats at the hands
of Oregon State College and the University of Washington. While the race
against he Beavers was little more
than a work-out for the opposition,
the Thunderbirds gave the Washington lightweight crew a bit more competition. The time for this latter race
was very good, according to the returning "heroes," It was approximately 30 seconds under the time usually made by the Washington crew
in practice.
The club executive believes that
the local organization has at last risen from a nonentity to an up and
coming body of athletes of cbout 50
or 60 men. Those who made the trip
were chiefly veterans accompanied by
a few of the more promising "rookies." i
At O.S.C. rowing conditions are
much the same as they are here. The
returning oarsmen say that the club
Is no one-horse affair which has recently begun to show signs of life.
They, however, have gone thead to
such an extent that they have a clubhouse of their own and are recognized
as a useful group. Their men also
receive credit in their scholastic
standing for their participation in the
sport. They, too, have very inefficient equipment, being helped to a
certain extent by California and
and were using a different type of
shell. The Staters leapt away to an
early lead which they lengthened until at the half-way mark they were
well in the lead. From there on they
found they could afford to take it
easy the rest of the way, as a result
of which the B.C. crew managed to
shorten the gap between the two
shells to a certain extent.
The Washington race was a more
closely contested event, the B.C. boys
even having a lead at the beginning
of the race. The Washington boat
was about a length and a half ahead
at the finish. The lightweight crew
which defeated our team recently
beat the Washington Frosh crew, a
hitherto   unprecedented   happening.
The Washington coach complimented the visitors on their display of
doggedness and hinted that he may
be able to help the local club out in
the matter of equipment in the near
future. Coach Brand said he was
well satisfied with the outcome of the

of the games went to a third hotly
contested set before they were won.
The surprised U.B.C. team, who get
little practice compared to their opponents went Into the lead at the beginning of the tournament and remained there.
In spite of the intense cold In the
building, a vary high standard of
badminton was displayed and the
games were won only by good playing and not by luck.
The U.B.C. team waa composed of
Molly Lock, Jean Meredith, Peggy
MacLeod, Varsity Women's champion,
Janet Seldon, Ronnie Allen, Stan
Hayden, Varsity Men's champion,

Victoria 5; U.B.C. 0
Again the McKechnie Cup,
premier honour in local rugby
circles, took the quick route
away from the campus, and followed the birds to Victoria,
tacked on to a 5-0 score. Our
unpredictable Thunderbird got
grounded in the mud under a
fighting and lucky fifteen from
the sunshine city, Saturday
Despite the heavy field and drenching rain both teams turned in brilliant games and kept the customers
guessing with soma smart passing of
a slippery ball and good dribbling by
the forwards.
Aftsr donating tht first half the
luckless collegians were on the wrong
end of the breaks, when early ln the
second half Peden muffed a penalty
kick and ln the resulting scramble
Strat Legatt, who played a fine game
at wing three, fumbled. Harry East-
ham fell on the ball for an easy try.
Peden converted to make the score
5-0 where it remained for the rest
of tht game.
Varsity resumed her first half attack and pushed the ball up to the
Victoria line but failed to make a
Howls MoFhtt, newcomer to Thunderbird rugby, used his speed effectively in the game. He featured in
wing play, making long gaini along
the touch line, although his passing
was poor.
However, the greasy ball made fast
hand play impossible. Both sides
missed tries as the ball slithered
through out-stretched hands of disgusted players.
Dave Carey seemed to have lost his
magic toe for the day. He usually
boots penalties and such with the
greatst of ease, but Saturday spoilt
several kicks, one in a clear scoring
Peden was also off form and made
his only good kick too convert the
try. However, it was not a kickers*
day, both boots and ball were wet,
sluggish, heavy and slippery.
Johnny Bird played his usual brilliant game at fullback, stopping the
speeding Victoria three's as they
caught the Varsitymen napping. Attacks just folded up against this star
safety man.
Paul Rowe shared premier honors
with McPhee and Bird. His fine running and clean tackling were a decided factor In Victoria's win.
Varsity's three's were shaded by
the smart visitors, but the hardy forwards of the blue and gold more than
made up for any disadvantage. Playing a fine pick-up game and always
on the ball in the loose, they pushed
Victoria to the try line with dribbling
