Small Percentage
Of Passes Shown
In Exam. Results
Only 47.1 Percent of Sophomores Pass and
Freshmen Fall Below with 34.9 Percent
Only 47.1 per cent, of the Sophomores and 34.9 per cent, of
the Freshmen managed to clear completely the high hurdles
of the Christmas Examinations.
Figures for the first and second years issued from the Registrar's Office show that only these few passed all their examinations and got a passing average.
One hundred and fifty-one Frosh<S>
and  one  hundred  and   eighty-four
Sophomores are the actual number
who passed. Of these the second
year students obtained more passes
than the frosh, despite the fact that
their numbers were fewer. The
two-year olds had sixteen first
classes to the eight which the Frosh
67 Second classes to 55 showed
that Sophomores can "get the dope"
on paper better than the inexperienced Freshmen. The Sophomores
also got 101 passes to 88 Frosh
In second year Applied Science
there were 2 firsts, 19 seconds and 5
passes, while the third year students
garnered only 1 first, 11 seconds and
one pass.
Agriculture students of the first
year got 5 seconds and 8 passes out
of a total registration of 20, while
the second year farmers, with fifteen students got 2 firsts, 5 seconds
and 3 passes.
First Year marks were given out

University Birds
Lead in Egg Contest
At Agassiz Farm
Possible rivals for the honors held
by the famous Hen No. 6 are coming Into the limelight as a result of
their performance in the egg laying
contest now being held at the Dominion Experimental Farm at Agassiz.
At the end of the eighth week the
University pen of White Leghorns
was showing the way to all competitors. These birds, one of which
is a daughter of Hen No. 6, have
established a phenomenal lead considering the short time which the
contest has been running. They
have laid a total of 370 eggs giving
them 376 points whereas their nearest competitor has only 319 points,
it is interesting to note in this connection that Hen No. 6 is still actively engaged in producing eggs,
having laid a total of 1197 during
her long life.

Mr. Stanley Mathews who has
been acting as Academic Consul to
Scottish students and graduates in
Vancouver for some years is to
continue this work which has so
much assisted friendly international
feeling between Universities. In addition to being Academic Consul for
students from Scotland, Mr. Mathews
is extending his services to include
students from English and Welsh
Universities. According to correspondence received from Charles G.
Brown, Keeper of the Registrar of
Honorary Academic Consuls, the existence of Academic Consuls Is to
be given more prominence in Britain, and it is anticipated that students will take greater' advantage of
the facilities thus put forward.
The Academic Consul ensures for
the student coming from another
country, a primary introduction to
the oity and University, «Through
his services students may get information in regard to academic or
other facilities or opportunities offered by the University. The advantages of this introduction include
the assurance that interest will be
shown in the students and that they
will receive every possible courtesy,
Mr. Brown has sent the consul of
this University a list of the Academic Consuls in Britain who extend
this service to students from Canada. These include Consuls from
eighteen different cities in England,
Scotland and Wales, including an
adviser for overseas students at Oxford University. Mr. Mathews has
also received a supply of Introductory cards for students from this
province who intend going to
Jan. 15th.

American Pictures
At Recent Exhibit
An event unique in the history of
the University and arousing considerable interest among the students
was an exhibition of contemporary
American paintings held in the faculty room In the library from December 14 to December 19.
The exhibition represented many
and various types of paintings.
There was only one element that
.unified the collection —all were the
products of American artists, practically all of Whom ark living. It
represented, in one room, and almost at a glance, current American
art ideals and performance.
One of the most striking paintings
was a deep sea study by Charles A.
Murphy, a judge of the First District Court in Salem, Mass. He is
entirely self-taught and paints from

Barrie Play
To Be Staged
By Thespians
"Alice Sit-by-the-Flre," by Sir
James M. Barrie is the play chosen
by the Advisory Board of the Players' Club for their Spring production sometime in March. Owing to
the resignation of Prof. F. G. C.
Wood, the play will be directed by
Sidney Risk, former member of the
club and director of more than one
Christmas Play. He was also author of the prize-winning one-act
play "Fog," In 1930.
"Alice Sit-by-the-Flre" was first
produced in London in 1906, with
Ellen Terry, for whom the play was
written, ln the leading role. Ethel
Barrymore starred In the same play
shortly afterward ln ftew York.
The play is a highly amusing and
interesting story of a mother's return from India with her husband,
the Colonel, to see her children who
have been under the care of a nurse
for many years. She finds it bard
to realize that her babies have
grown up, and that she herself isn't
as young as she used to be.
Professor Wood recalls that in 1918
this same play was produced by the
club, twice in Vancouver, and twice
in Victoria. "This of course was long
before the time of, Spring Play
tours; for in those days the Players'
Club was aiding the crippled War
Veterans instead of paying the debts
of the Alma Mater Society," said
Professor Wood as he reminisced.
Professor Wood is also able to remember the names of his original
cast, which include Viva Martin in
the lead, and Jessie Adams, Irene
Cowan (now Mrs. Ernest Rogers)
and Mrs. Hunter Lewis, Bina Taylor
(Mrs. Wilfred Stoess) and Connie
Highmore who is now Mrs. Cecil
Adams of Portland.
The men of the cast were Jim Al-
lard and Fred Law, both of whom
have met accidental death.

uary 14 to April 20, The corms were
planted December 15. On February
8, all the corms in the heated plot
had produced considerable leaf
growth above the soil while in the
chock plot which had no heat leaves
were just  beginning to emerge.
In the heated plot, the first bloom
appeared April 22 in one variety and
April 26 in another. In the unheated
plot the first blooms appeared on
May 8 ond May 15. More than 80
per cent of the plants in the heated
plot had bloomed before the first
flower   opened   in   the   check   plots.
"The corms in the heated and
check plots were dug and compared
carefully to determine the effects
ct" soil heating," Emsweller said.
"While the number of corms was
perhaps too small to place much
significance on the results, yet a
few facts were consistent througn-
out. The heated plots produced
larger corm.-i and a higher yield of
cormels." •7

The Totem, whose existence was expected
to terminate at any moment last term, is now
definitely assured of continuance. However,
the delay in work on the annual has made its
production before the end of April a doubtful matter, with the result that a hard-working
staff are more than ever in need of intelligent
cooperation from the students concerned in
All members of the graduating class as well
as those on class or club executives are ex-
pected to have their photographs taken at the
Artona Studio, to which the contract has been
given. They are urged to make appointments
Immediately, in order that the serious task of
arranging and compiling the annual may be
commenced without further delay,
If those students who enjoy the Totem and
yet make no effort to comply with this request
could know the amount of time and labour
that goes into its production, there would be
no further need of these scholarly exhortations.
Read the article on the Totem printed in today's "Ubyssey," for the necessary information, and let the staff have the satisfaction of
knowing that their efforts on the students' behalf are, if not appreciated, at least not ignored.
With the opening of the spring term the
enrolment at the University includes a consid-
- erable number of men and women who are
taking the short courses in agriculture. These
necj^e are of course not members of the Alma
'^ Miter Society; their stay at the University is
of too short duration to permit of them taking
a prominent part in campus activities; their
interests and ages differ as a rule from those
of the regular degree student. None of these
facts, however, provide reason why the short
course students should not be accepted as
members of the student body, which for the
time being they undoubtedly ,are. While it
would be impractical for the Alma Mater Society to make any organized effort of welcome,,
there are often opportunities for personal contact between regular, and short course students
which should not be neglected.
The criticism has been advanced that a university is not the place for technical courses
which do not lead to a degree and which are
of brief duration. However this may be, there
can be no doubt that the short courses in agriculture not only make an economical supplementary use of available teaching and demonstration facilities but also fill a very real need
for people who are after all a highly desirable
type of student—those who are anxious to obtain knowledge which will help them with their
everyday problems.
An institution as dependent on public funds
as is U.B.C. can ill afford to neglect any opportunity to make a favorable impression on public opinion. A spirit of helpfulness and cooperation towards the short course students
should go far to convince these men and
women that the University exists for some
other reason than to confer on the children
of the rich, degrees, which carry a certain
amount of social prestige.
With their wealth of experience many profs
should now be able to obtain jobs as bouncers.

Some students are finding that examination
results are a poor tonic on which to recover
from New Year celebrations.
People are asking whether the low average
of "passes" evidenced by the recent examination results can be attributed to the depression.

It is hoped that the student who arrived
with a pack on his back to attend the short
courses in agriculture does not consider the
University "the bunk."

On his arrival in Bombay, Mahatma Gandhi
declared that he "would not flinch from sacrificing the lives of a million people as the price
of India's liberty." During the Civil War,
Artemas Ward, famous American humorist,
announced his willingness to sacrifice all his
wife's relations to save the country.
Last term some criticism of this column,
favorable and otherwise, was heard from various quarters. The column, let it be said, represents my own views, and not nec-
Off essarily those of the editors or of stu-
Again dents in general. It does not attempt
to please all the students all the time.
Some have the childish attitude that The Ubyssey, including 'Pipe and Pen,' should comment
only on campus matters. With this I disagree,
as I think most students do. Whether this column is pretty feeble, as some tell me, or the
best feature in the paper, as others say, I do
not know; but believing that the majority of
readers are satisfied, I ramble on, and try to
make it of general interest. Wishing all a
Happy New Year, yours sincerely.

Among the books I read during the holidays
was "I Lived This Story," by Betty White.
(Doubleday, Doran; 1930). I understand it circulated in sorority circles here last
Inside year, arousing considerable indigna-
Dope tion. And well it might, for it is a
very frank story of a girl's career at a
mid-western American university, telling how
she at first believed in sororities and later, as
a result of experience and maturity, came to
despise them. Her attitude, although she was
a member of one of these organisations, is
summed up in the words of one of the characters: "I prefer to lead my own life, developing my own personality, without the guiding
hand of forty or fifty morons with a reforming
complex." There are many choice passages
about the university in general, and fraternities and sororities in particular. "Why, he isn't
even a fraternity man!" seems to have been
the most withering charge possible against an
unfortunate youth.
It is said that Miss White was ejected from'
her sorority for writing the book. Betcha that
made her sorry!

I also read "Twenty Years Among the
Twenty Year Olds," by James Anderson
Hawes. (E, P. Dutton, 1929). Mr. Hawes is a
national officer of a fraternity.
A Naive The book does not deal primarily
Champion with fraternities, but does so secondarily, and the author is very
much on the defensive about them. He declares
that: "There are proper objections to the fraternity system and to the too great loyalty of
students and alumni to these fraternities and
clubs. However, the fact remains that they
fill a great need, and no opposition to them can
ever succeed until a better scheme or plan for
the social life and housing of the students is
evolved." Here, as elsewhere, he stresses the
two strong points in favor of these organizations, and implicitly admits that there may be
a better solution.
The author admits, too, that fraternities are
strong conservative influences. For example:
"Whenever a wave of Socialism or class feeling of any kind sweeps the country, a small
eddy of the wave always strikes the fraternities in State universities."
That fraternities stand relatively low in
scholarship is the one charge that can be to
a certain extent proved, he says. Political and
athletic interference brings its own punishment, he adds vaguely. A fraternity tries to
get prominent men in order to add to Its prestige, he declares simply, and goes on with naive
zeal: "Cases are innumerable of younger men
securing business positions and owing their
entire success in life to employment or assistance given by the alumni to them as members
of their fraternities." Many, he continues, are
influenced to join one or another organization
because of greater business opportunities offered by the one body of alumni over another.
In other words, they choose as friends those
whom they can use to the best advantage.
Unwittingly, Mr. Hawes denounces the fraternity system in these enthusiastic words:
"The less we depend upon artificial restrictions
and the more we depend upon the wholesome,
friendly, gregarious instincts of the average
American youth, the better." (Applause).
A South American general was shot the
other day for "conduct unbecoming an officer."
A similar fate is due General Depression.

Short Courses
ln Agriculture
Well Attended
Present figures indicate that the
enrolment for the short courses In
agriculture which have been a regular feature of the spring term at
the University for the past ten
years, will exceed all previous records this year.
While the majority of the registrations for these courses come from
people with practical experience in
agriculture who are desirous of obtaining further scientific information,
there are this year a number of
students who are taking the work
for other reasons. Several men with
capital who wish to know the status and conditions of B. C. agriculture have signed up tor one or more
of the courses offered. Many younger students too have registered this
year, some with the Intention of
finding out what possibilities agriculture has to offer them.
The students themselves who arc
at the University for the special instruction in agriculture present a
wide variety of types. One man arrived with his pack on his back and
wanted to. know where there was a
place to "bunk.' More than one
student was brought out by his parents, indicating a younger age than
has been the rule in previous years.
Yet another student is an ex-member of the British Civil Service. All
however are bound together by a
common desire to improve their
knowledge of one of Canada's basic
Four courses are being offered this
year. These include work in poultry husbandry, soils, horticulture
and animal diseases. Lectures and
demonstrations will continue from
now until February 1.

The Fishsoup
By M. E.
The morning sun peeked above the
western horizon of the cloudless sky
and chased the stars away. The moon
had long since washed its teeth and
gone to bed. An hour passed and
still another hour.
Silence was broken at last on the
campus by the sobs of a janitor weeping because he had arrived at work
fifteen minutes too soon. The eight
a.m. bell clanged in the ears of the
wailing workman and he set to work
with his companions, The nine a.m.
bell had only executed its last throat-
twisting throbs when the News-Manager, fraught with news most startling, vaulted the Pub. counter and
made a three-point landing beside the
editor's desk.
And what a tale did Mr. Medley
than unfold. Being a News Manager
he new how to tall a story and in
Words .borrowed from the dictionary
he told of the tragic death of Frederick Fishsoup.
Freddy Fishsoup, who was a member of the Iota Eta Pi Fraternity, waa
found drowned in the Lily Pond at
five o'clock the previous evening. The
Investigation by the City Police revealed that the deceased had jumped
into a secluded comer of tho pool
and had swam out Into deep water
where he had taken a dose of arsenic
and had than stabbed himself. He
just had sufficient time to pluck a
few UUes before ha want down for
the last time. Evidently a case of
clear suicide.

Student Union
Gets Together
Next Thursday
Since so much is heard about unionism and its advantages these days,
tha Muck Pago has decided to organise a Studanta Union.
Those interested are asked to meat
in Arts 5506, Thursday at 11:45 p.m.
A constitution has been prepared and
will be presented for ratification.
Election of officers will be the next
item on the agenda, and the laziest
of those attending the meeting wiU
be the most probable members of the
executive. Remember fellows, next
Thursday in Arts 5306 at 11:45 p.m.
There will be ten points in the
Union's program. The first and most
important wiU be the establishment
of a minimum, mark on exams and
essays. Fifty percent will be the goal
for upper year exams and all essays,
while a concession will be made to
professors to allow a forty-percent
mark for first and second year students in sU examinations.
Other points in this stupendous
effort of the students to stick up for
their own rights will be the cancellation of aU lectures and laboratories
from 4 to 4:30 to allow students to
have tea, easy chairs for lectures, no
lectures, free cigarettes or pipe tobacco during lectures, coffee during
exams, no exams and free shows in
the auditorium every night. A Campus
Beer parlor will also come in for consideration.
It is interesting to note that, this
worthy effort has received the hearty
support of aU members of the Muck
Staff, the janitors, and the librarians.
The C.O.T.C. and
How It Grew Up
(From the Dalhousie Gazette)
Contrary to prevailing opinion the
OTC is an Institution of long stand-
Ing in human society. It is now established beyond dispute that the
Heidelberg Man was an active member of one of the first OTC's in existence. An eminent historian quotes
Moses as saying that with an efficient/ OTC he could have made the
Promised Land in six weeks. The
first tablet of the original manuscript
of Homer's immortal epic, the Odyssey, recently discovered in the pub-
Usher's waste-stone chasm, bears the
original title of the poem, the OTC.
Hannibal one of the finest specimens the OTC ever turned out, was
ever mindful of the early training he
received through it. One of the war-
elephants he led across the Alps was
named OTC. The elephant unfortunately died in the mountain snows,
but Hannibal not to be deterred, decreed that the nearby peak should be
named OTC and such it has remained
aU these years ln the Swiss corruption Matterhorn.
The Romans would never have
gained a footing in Britain had not
the Colt OTC been engaged ln sham
battle with the Plot OTC at Stone
hqnge. One of tha most potent oaths
ever used by Richard Coeur de Lion
was "By my OTCI" An outstanding
Barbery corsair is authority for tha
statement that nobody could puU a
gaUey like the OTC.
The Editor regrets that space does
not permit tha inclusion of mora of
these Interesting facta. He believes,
however, that enough has bean quoted to convey tha idea of tha glorious
past of this gallant organization. In
case there should still bo doubters
he appends tha foUowing quotations:
Admiral Lord Nelson-England ex-
poets ovary man to join tho COTC.
Carrie Nation-Down with tho saloons! We shall use tha COTC if
Tubal Cam—I owe my start in business to tho OTC.
Carol I. of Rumanla-I don't want to
go home. I prefer to remain In the
R. B. Bennett-Markets! I shall
blast them open with tha COTC.
President Hoover—I shaU appoint
a commission of enquiry.
Woodrow Wilson—It will make the
world safe for hypocrisy.
Tarzan of the Apes—I have found
COTC methods very effective for organizing my apes.
Mackenzie King-Not a five cent
piece for the COTC.
New Year resolutions are something to be avoided. We recall one case of an absent-minded professor who swore up and
down as well as backwards and forwards that he would always
while at home, throw his cigarette and cigar butts into the cuspidor instead of into the sink or on the floor or some other
foolish place. A week went by while the cuspidor received its
share of burnt offerings. But there came a day, no—it was a
night. The professor forgot himself as he prepared to retire.
After turning out the lights (somehow he remembered to do
that) he tucked his cigar into bed and jumped into the cuspidor.
Muck-a-Muck has disregarded N. Y. resolutions. We merely
intend to follow our policy which you will find printed in bold
letters at the top of the page and which is subject to change

"My dear, you must go to my new
beauty doctor—she's simply marvelous. She'll make you look like another person,"
It seems to bo tha custom for U.B.C.
graduates to write stories on their
wanderings In strange lands for tha
edification of the younger generation
In the wild and wooUy west. (I know
It is wild and woolly because tha
people haw taU me so.) At any rate,
I do not want to be an exception and
will try to describe a little of tht
Michigan atmosphere.
Moat of these stories begin by
pointing out the difference between
U.BC. and the naw loafing grounds
so I wUl begin by saying that tha
chief difference between Michigan
and U.B.C. Ilea In their respective
ages. Michigan was founded In 1187,
and has been one of tha loading unl-
versities In the U.S.A. over since. The
unwary visitor stroUIng across tha
campus at night falls over rocks, pillars or flagpoles inscribed, "Class of
■76," or "Men of *M." Nowadays gra-
dilates arc much mora generous. After
making tho first mUllon they come
back and donate a couple of gymnasiums or a stadium, despising a mate
rock ot flagpole. Anyhow, It is a
very, very old university.
The campus Itself Is largo, extending over a square mUe of buildings.
Thus some students have to be in
good training to get from one building to another In seven minutes,
which Is the time allowed between
lectures. Classes commence on the
hour and end at seven minutes past.
If a prof, keeps a class the members
get up and walk out.
Coeds living In boarding houses or
sorority houses are compeUed to "keep
hours." They must be in every night
by ton-thirty, except Fridays and
Saturdays, when 1:30 and 12:30 are the
respective deadlines. Every house
taking students for the university
year Is examined by official* who
place tha official stigma upon those
unfit. This, of course, compels all
houses to have two ashtrays and a
bathroom. Men, on the other hand,
do not keep hours, which prove* a
continual source of Irritation to the
females sines 'the males take town
girls out in preference to coeds.
The buildings hero are numerous
and no two look alike. Some of them
date from tho foundation of the university while others are in the process
of erection. The athletic buildings are
quite as many as tho purely academic
structures, and are scattered all over
the campus and beyond. So far I
have counted five gymnasiums and I
believe there are more.
The stadium deserves a new paragraph. It is a perfect concrete oval
far excelling the motion picture type
of thing. It has a permanent seating
capacity for 87,000, while bleachers can
be erected for another 12,000. A perfect view of play Is possible from any
seat. I know since I have sat In some
of the worst.
The football games are an important feature of tho autumn. After
Christmas football still holds sway as
fellows discuss the important question: "Why Michigan should place six
men on the All American team!" As
far as tho game Itself is concerned
I find that the band Is wonderful.
Michigan has a band of 106 pieces with
drum major thrown In extra. At half
time It puts on a grand display, while
during the game It starts at the slightest protest, such as when the players
get tired and sit down for a rest. This
Is frequent. In fact, I never saw such
a coddled collection of athletes before.
Even the U.B.C. basketball team Is put
In the shade. Whenever the footbaU-
en here get tired they caU time out
and lie on the grass while a very
splendid looking person brings them
lemonade. This occure about twice
every quarter, a quarter lasting fifteen minutes. Thus footbaU Is after all
merely a matter of swilling lemonade.
As tar as play Is concerned, the
stadium is equipped with loud speakers through which a gent with a
southern accent announces what is
going on. Thus thc students always
know when to cheer. This is Important as when things go wrong the local
fans boo lustily, the object of their
venom generally being their own
quarterback, or their coach and occasionally tho referees, of which there
is a regular squadron. This year Michigan fled Northwestern and Purdue
for tiie championship but tho amaslng
thing Is that Michigan played neither
of those other two squads, fills, of
course, Is arranged ao that studanta
can always argue on whether Michigan could beat Northwestern. The
present argument has lasted for two
years and la stlU a favorite dinner
topic. Personally I Imagine that footbaU practice Is far move Interesting
than a game. Then tho players do
not got lemonade but have to pose for
pictures which is an awfully trying
business. Yet footbaU pays. The star
man hero haa a wonderful job which
consists in keeping a table warm at
tho Michigan Union.
All of which brings us to the Michigan Union. This Is a-club to which
every male member of the University
belongs. It Is a building on State
Street, tho main drag In Campus
Town, and Is really a hotel on rather
an elaborate Scale, containing billiard
rooms, barber shops, cafe, dining
room, dance floon and other student
necessities. It has one really Inestimable advantage. No woman Is allowed In the place except when escorted by a member and even then
she must enter by the side door. At
no time Is a female allowed In the tap
room—favorite loafing ground of tho
That eternal blight on college life,
the fraternity, la rife on the Michigan
campus. Men are either fraternity or
Independent, and may tho goda help
tho latter. Elections are aU fraternity politics while at election
times campus town Itself divides
sharply Into sections and signs implore tho dated passerby to vote for
tha "State Street Ticket" or the
"Washtenaw Candidate." The difference la that the latter party haa money
while tho State street people are
more plebeian, according to the caste
system at present In vogue at the
modern university.
All In all, It Is a wonderful placo.
The life Itself haa a glamour all its
own. Ninety percent of the students
are Uvlng away from home and thus
visits are made to single rooms,
where the guest takes the chair and
the host pretends he is comfortable
on the bed. Apples and cigarettes
appear and the place becomes real
home. I think some one should write
a book on "How one room can become
a palace of comfort."
At any rate everything is here to
make the student happy and comfortable. There is one innovation I would
like to make. I would like to Introduce the wearing of gowns by faculty
and senlon. After aU there is nothing
like a gown when a man needs a
pen wiper.
Oh! Mr. Culbertson
Rufus McGoofus and Henrietta Negg
last night cut down their opponents'
lead to only one rubber In the month-
long contract bridge tournament being staged in the Business Manager's
office. Using their card-ln-the-sleeve
system they forced Ahtony and Cleopatra to forfeit their 4000 point lead
during the night's play.
The contest has completed its first
week. Antony remarked after the
end ot the bout last night that McGoofus and Miss Negg were not playing their system. "They had all the
good cards, too," he stated.
Cleopatra, one of the world's greatest exponents of "Toe-tapping" methods In contraot bridge, had nothing to
say concerning the play except, "I've
won more rubbers in contract bridge
than McGoofus has in his whole lifetime at strip-poker."
Rufus, however, is firmly convinced
his card-in-the-sleeve system is better than that of the'official toe-tappers. "Let me illustrate," he begged.
"In hand No. 287.3 North (that's Antony) had four aces, four kings and
three queens as well as a bunch of
tent. He contracted for two no-
trumps while wo expanded' for six
hearts. Our bid was doubled. We
re-doubled. Cleo was astonished.
Antony exclaimed, 'Et tu, Brute!' Mr.
Lannlng tha referee expelled him from
the building for talking but ha came
back dressed at Martin Luther and
got by tho ref. So wo had to play
our hands. I led an ace from my
right-hand cuff. Antony played his
ace, my partner trumped it and the
Egyptian queen took tho trick when
no one was looking. At one time in
that particular hand wa wore down
four tricks but we had another one
up our sleeves. At just the right moment Miss Negg pointed to a desk in
the corner and told our opponents it
was the table at which the great
Arnold Henderson worked. While
they stared in wonder we copped the
tricks and, Incidentally, the game."
The players have found it necessary to foUow a special diet. Being
in more or less of a gruelling match,
they drink gruel at every meal. Yesterday McGoofus had spinach for
supper. "We deserve a win, now,"
he exclaimed.
For breakfast, Henrietta Negg.

Dream Daze
By Otto von Nurti
Dreams are made of queer stuff. If
you don't believe me read the following harrowing tale:
It was the night before the fatal
'day of resumption of lectures. Owing to a rather too great propensity
for mince pie and "Jap" oranges,
sleep came slowly to my troubled
body. For a long time I lay awake,
Ustenlng to the steady drumming of
the rain on the roof and the yowling
of the neighbor's radio. And as I
lay thus ruminating, a steady beat
as of tom-toms came to my can.
Louder and louder grew the cadence
and voices joined the recurrent drumming. As far as my horrified brain
could distinguish, the noise came
from outside my window.
The tumult waxed louder and
louder and then suddenly stopped. To
my ears came the sound of a sharp,
clear voice saying, "Class, halt!" This
was followed by a period of silence
then a sound of rustling paper was
borne to me by the gusty breeze.
"Have you all got the right page?"
said the voice again. There was no
audible reply. "Forward, then," declared the unknown leader, "and be
careful not to dirty your nice white
To my utter astonishment shrouded
figures commenced to enter by my
bedroom window. They passed completely through the glass without any
visible effort. In silent they grouped
themselves around the foot of the
bed and raised copies of the Student
Handbook before their faces. A figure
draped in black stepped forward and
raised his clenched hand to the level
of his face and said "Doh!" Immediately all the shrouded apparitions
intoned "Doh!" and all its possible

To Good Start
Under efficient management, and
blessed with plenty of good material, the Intermediate Ice-hockey team
has already started on a victorious
season and from aU appearances wiU
be a team to worry about when they
hit their real stride. They have already defeated the Ambassadors 3-2

"Pi" is going great guns on the
tour and getting the rebounds Just
as he always does. He has been in
every game and plays hard every
minute he's on the floor. "Pi" Is
recognised as one of the best men in
Canada for snaring rebounds and he
can jump like a cat He has been a
consistent point-getter on the tour.
Accompanied by Gavin Dirom, President of Men's Athletics,
the U. B. C. Basketball squaud are well on their way across
Canada playing in exhibition and intercollegiate games in every
province from here to Ontario.
According to the latest reports the team, consisting of Nicholson, Campbell, Mayers, Wright, Osborne and Mclntyre, are in
excellent condition, are getting accustomed to the small gyms
and different atmosphere, and are standing up well under the
strenuous travel schedule.
Grid Season
Resumes For
With the beginning of the new
term, final preparations are being
made in the Canadian Rugby Club
to field two teams In the city
leagues. The intermediates will play
the second half of their schedule,
while, if a sufficient number of
freshmen turn'out. a freshmen team
will be formed to play in* the inter-
scholastic games
Both Dr. Burke and Mr. Price
will be out coaching the teams, and
several Big Four men have also
signified their intention of turning
out to help teach the boys the tricks
of the game.
Practices will be resumed sometime this week, and all prospective
players are advised to watch the
notice board in the quad for further
announcements. A good turn-out
is expected this term, and with the
Undivided attention of the coaches
and the help of the Big Four boys,
all those who turn, out are assured
expert coaching.
In accordance with a recent ruling of
Council that all athletic teams when
away from the University must be
accompanied either by a member of
Faculty • or a member of Council,
Gavin Dirom, President of Men's Athletics is travelUng with the Blue and
Gold basketball squad on their eastern tour. While on the trip Dirom
will represent U.B.C. at the conference of the Western Inter-collegiate
Amateur Athletic Union which is to
be held shortly in Saskatoon.
The Badminton Club will resume
play on Wednesday night with their
regular schedule. New members are
asked to turn out as soon as possible
and notify any member of the Executive. The fees for the half year are
two dollars.
With a record of 47 victories out
of 51 starts the Portland Multnomah
Club basket squad, led by the veteran coach, Ray Brooks, tackles the
championship U. B. C, quintet on
January 12 in the home gym. This
wUl be the seventh consecutive basketball invasion of British Columbia
by a basketball team tutored by
Coach Brooks.
In these 51 games, Multnomah
players have scored a total of 2584
points while opponents have succeeded In garnering 1081. Highlights
of the season Include victories over
Linfield College, Pacific University,
and the University of Oregon. In
the Portland amateur league the
Multnomahs have swept through to
sixteen consecutive wins while in
exhibition games the cream of 250
Oregon teams have bowed to the
Varsity's chances of taking the
Portland live are considered favor-
ale by close followers of the game.
The Washington encounter, though
not very encouraging to the home
team, showed the boys the type of
basketball played on the other side
of the line.
Varsity should be in good shape
after two weeks of inter-colleglate
competition between here and Winnipeg and if one is to judge from
reports, the students are fast hitting the stride that carried them to
the Dominion championship last
year. January 12 will be the first
chance students will have of seeing
the home crew in action and with
the Multnomah club as opposition, a
big crowd Is expected.
Playing in Seattle on December 28
with only six men the Varsity boys
lost to the University ot Washington
squad by a score of 74-21 before a
crowd of two thousand spectators.
Weakened by the injury to Osborne's ankle and by the absence
of "Pi" Campbell the six Varsity,
men had to play, against a squad
that had the equivalent of three
teams. Numerous substitutions
throughout the entire game wore
down the Blue and Gold crew. The
Puget Sound team averaged 6 ft. 1
in. in height artd Laurie Nicholson,
U. B. C. 6 ft. centre had to contest
in the toss ups with a giant opponent measuring 6 ft, o in. The game
opened fast and the Washington
quintette sent the ball through'the
hoop for 22 points before Varsity got
a point. The continuous substitutions on the Seattle team undoubtedly had an effect on making the
score as one sided as it was.

Playing at Lethbridge In the first
game of their Canadian tour, the
Varsity cage five were handed a
43-31 beating.
Playing in a small gymnasium, tlie
local boys appeared to be affected
by the restricted conditions. The
game .was not a brilliant exhibition
of basketball and the Blue and Oold
crew lacked that extra bit of pep
which they usually possess. "Pi"
Campbell and Bob Osborne were the
outstanding  players   on   the   Varsity

The Raymond Union Jacks handed
the U. B. C. hoopsters a last minute
defeat on New Tear's day when a
looping shot gave the prairie team
a two point margin   in the   dying
moments   of   the   game,   the   final
score being 32-30.
The game was played before 500
excited fans who saw some snatches
of really snappy basketball. Both
teams started at a fast clip and Varsity drew first blood on a free
throw. From then until half time
it was a see-saw battle and the
score stood at 11 all at the half way
mark. The Jacks took a seven point
lead In the second half but Varsity
speeded up the play and the score
was tied with three minutes to go.
Both teams were working hard and
U. B. C. went into the lead on a
long shot which was equalized a
few seconds later when Raymond
converted two personals. With less
than a minute to go the Union Jacks
scored with a long looping shot
from the sidelines which spelled defeat for the coast aggregation.

The Ice Hockey Club of Varsity
has entered a team in the Junior division of the Vancouver Amateur
Hockey Association this year, and
from all indications an interesting session is to be expected. The U. B. C.
boys have a bye on Friday, but they
play the Canucks the week after at
8.30 p.m. and the following Friday,
January 22, they meet the Vies at the
same time. Both games are scheduled
for the Arena.
The efforts of the Basketball Club so far'this year have
apparently been crowned with a conspicuous lack of success,
and in view of such a situation we may be accused of "alibying"
in seeking to attribute the failure of the squad to the influence
of unusual circumstances. We wish to point out several factors,
which we think should be more generally recognized before
passing judgment on the hoopsters.
In the first place it must be remembered that the clubs
took certain steps at the beginning of the season to try and
safeguard the academic standing of the members of the senior
team. In so doing, the Club was forced into a situation which
denied them the benefit of meeting teams of their own calibre
in active competition, and in consequence the players suffered
through inactivity and showed a lack of practice which soon
became a serious handicap. Realizing the inevitable outcome of
such a state of affairs the management began negotiations which
are at last bearing fruit 'in providing competition which is
vitally necessary if the basketball team is to fittingly defend its
laurels as champions of the Dominion of Canada.
We must remember then that the present efforts of the
Club are to be regarded rather in the light of an attempt to
face a serious situation and endeavoring to stage a "come-back"
rather than a triumphal tour. The result will probably fail to
immediately satisfy our student ego, but we should recognize
the necessity of momentarily sacrificing a little prestige in a
commendable effort to assure the ultimate return to status quo.
Ruggers Hope
For Success
This Season
The English Rugby Club is once
more operating at full pressure and
the boys are already in good condition and practising regularly. Practises this term will be on Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday at 3 p.m.
The number of teams participating
jthis year is restricted to three besides the McKechnie Cup team.
These are one Millar Cup team and
one team in the 2nd and 3rd divisions.
The practise turnouts have been
quite satisfactory so far according
to the club president and everything
points to a successful season. The
first big game takes place next Saturday when the McKechnie Cup
squad hooks up with Victoria Reps
In a tussle at the Island city.
(Reprinted from the January 1st edition of the Vancouver Star.)
What with reviews of this and that
crowding the pages of all journals
a resume of Varsity sport for the year
1931-32 would not be very much
amiss and so with apologies to the
copyright owners it can be said that
the collegiate theme song for the year
was "Hall the Conquering Hero
Unversity of B. C.'s athletes dashed
hither and yon in one of the most
successful years that sport has had
but at the Point Orey institution. The
hoop lads popped baskets in such a
manner as to lead them right into
tho Dominion championship.
Captained by Arnold Henderson,
voted the V. and D.'s best all-round
player, the cagers vanquished all before them In the race for the provincial title, squeezed the threat from
Victoria and went on past Winnipeg
Toilers and St. Catharines Orads.
After laying back all season in the
Big Four'race, the student gridders
rose to inspired heights when they
vanquished the all-conquering brown
and gold squad from tiie University
of Manitoba. The sight of Art Murdoch booting the winning points and
Doug. Mclntyre weaving through
tacklers to save the day Is one that
wUl linger long In the memory of
grid enthusiasts.
Varsity women cagers were not idle
and took unto themselves the B, C.
title after an unbeaten season. Graduation, however, has taken a great toll
and the coeds are not the team they
used to be.
With the ushering in of 1931 came
the desire for more sport at the U.B.C.
so inter-class leagues were formed in
basketball and soccer and the students
indulged in more and more sport.
Alao with the increase in sport-consciousness came the desire for their
own stadium.
Thus was born a great drive equalling that when the students campaigned'for a new site for their university,
By- means of sport exhibitions and a
variety of contests and sales the collegians garnered enough shekels to
get started. Now a well laid out stadium ground adorns the campus and
awaits only bleachers to complete the
initial ambition.
Tennis was also in for a revival
at the university and in the fall term
the executives staged the first tournament in many years, which was worked through to a successful conclusion.
The English ruggers battled courageously for the McKechnie Cup in
the spring but were beaten out.
Soccer worked up a little in the
second   division,   while   swimming,
grass hockey and badminton had a
fair season.   Trackmen were in good
form and lost out by the odd few
points to CoUege of Puget Sound in
their annual meet.
Basketball   was   in   the   limelight
again when the Point Orey squad
won the western intercollegiate title.
The perpetual challenge cup offered for tiie Inter-class joccer
championship by the University Soccer Club two years ago is one of the
handsomest trophies representative of
Intramural athletic supremacy on
the campus. Interest in the competition last year was very keen, and
some fast games were served up by
the various classes. This year promises to furnish an even better class'
of soccer and in consequence, a
closer and more hard-fought struggle for the cup. Science '34 are
present holders of the trophy and
are again out In front in the Science
League this year.
