Exchange Professor
Addresses I.R.C.
Deplores U.S. Refusal To
Join League
Speaking on some of the phases of
European affairs Dr. Mander of the
University of Washington led the
.discussion at the meeting of the International Relations Club on Wednesday night at the home of Miss
Ethel McDowell. Dr. Mander, who is
exchanging for one week with Professor Soward, is the faculty adviser
ot the International Relations Club at
Washington. Miss Idele Wilson also
{•resented a summary of the Fortnight-
y Review. In it various aspects of
national and international problems
were dealt with.
At the beginning of his address,
Dr. Mander emphasized the change of
outlook in international affairs within the last 16 years. In treating with
the World Court a "law-giving agency," he deplored the fact that the
United States, though interlocking
considerably in world affairs, does not
seem to value its work and has not
entered it.
Next he showed that the international conferences that are now so
Iirevalent mark a real advance. Prob-
ems before have been allowed to
smoulder, now they can be, and indeed
must be thrashed out. Then he stated
that it was not until the forming of
the League of Nations has the distinction between legal and illegal war
been studied. Dr. Mander then outlined some important problems of the
League. He noted that some time ago
timely work at Geneva prevented a
fracas between Greece and Bulgaria.
However, the difficulties of today
took up the more prominent part of
his talk. The national urge, he stated,
is still strong and tariffs usually eon-
trolled by influential groups prove
obnoxious. The position of minorities
too was shown to be an urgent one,
especially in regard to Poland. The
vast subject of reparations and the
strained relations between Italy and
France were dealt with.
An open discussion followed Dr.
Mander's address.
Chinese University Students
To Stage Stadium Concert
A concert got up by the Chinese
University Students, will be held tonight at 8 p.m. in the Chinese United
Church, 430 Dunlevy Avenue, corner
of Pender and Dunlevy, in aid of the
U.B.C. Stadium fund. A varied programme will be provided, including
English and Chinese dramatical acts,
songs, jokes and many other interesting features.
POOR HOUSE GREETS
C.N.R.V. ORCHESTRA
Miss Donallan, Harpist,
Features Program
For Stadium
Visiting artists supplied practically
all the entertainment for the third
noon-hour recital of the spring term
sponsored by the Musical Society.
George Holland, Arts '32, was the
only University student on the program and the recital was opened with
two of his accordion selections.
The overture "Fra Diavolo" by
Auber was played by the Canadian
National Salon Orchestra directed by
C. Haydn Williams. Following this
they presented "Scenes Pittoresque"
by the French composer Massenet, including the "March," "Air de Ballet,"
"Angelus" and "Fete Boheme."
The other visiting artist, Muriel
Farrel Donallan, harpist, presented
two solos each of which were successful in gaining much applause from the
meagre audience.
The recital concluded with ballet
music from the opera 'Gioconda" by
Poncielli.
Members of the Musical Society
agreed that the CNRV Salon Orchestra had succeeded in presenting the
best recital of the year but they were
disgusted with the small number of
students who were interested enough
to attend it.
Silver collection amounting to
$27.86 has been added to the Stadium
Fund.
CHRISTIAN SHANTYMEN HEAD
TO GIVE ADDRESS TO V.C.U.
Dr. Hooper To Yisit Vancouver
Dr. E. Ralph Hooper, superintendent of the Shantymen's Christian Association who is at present in Vf»n
couver will speak at the V.C.U. meet-*
ing on Monday in Arts 204 at 12:10.
Students are cordially invited to attend this meeting.
Dr. Hooper is a graduate of Natural Science and Medicine of Toronto
University, and for twenty-one years
was on the medical faculty of the
University. He was a member of the
track and football teams and is a
winner of track championships.
Following his work in Toronto Dr.
Hooper has been connected with the
Shantymen's Association. He is the
author of a recently published book
"Is the Bible True?" dealing with the
subject from the standpoint of
science.
The V.C.U. have received word that
the Rev. F. Noel Palmer, General
Secretary of the Inter Varsity Christian Fellowship will be in Vancouver
during the first week of March. A
special series of meetings is being
planned so that the student body may
near this outstanding leader of youth.
Full announcements will appear later.
Grads to Entertain
At Stadium Cabaret
Varsity Stadium Nite will
be held at the Commodore Cabaret on Monday, February 23,
from 9 to 1.
The event is being sponsored
by a group of alumni, and all
undergraduates are invited to
attend. Varsity songs and music
will feature this reunion of grads
and students. Tickets are $2.50,
and may be obtained from Charlie Schultz or Art Cliffe on the
campus. Proceeds will go to the
Stadium Fund.
Dr. H. Ashton Honored
By Cambridge Degree
The degree of Doctor of Letters has been conferred on Dr.
Ashton by Cambridge University
for work in French literature.
This is awarded for complete
research work and takes many
years of labor. Dr. Ashton
hopes to go to Cambridge this
summer for the ceremony.
Artsmen Receive
Added Adornment
In Common Room
STUDY  TABLE FILLS
LONG-FELT NEED
A recent acquisition to the palatial
interior of the Arts Men's Common
Room is a study table of polished
?olden oak. No one seems to know
rom where it came but fervent study
on its polished surface indicates that
it has found a happy home.
There is a question in the minds of
many students as to how long the table
will remain in its present resting
place. Rumor has it that the Science-
men, inflamed by envy, are already
laying plans to appropriate it. The
crystal finish, which reflects images
like a mirror, is reported to be desired
for the ante-9-o'clock shaving of the
Red-shirts.
Exhibition Of Art
In Library Today
Through the kind permission of
Dr. Gordon Shrum, President of the
Faculty Association, the use of the
Faculty Room has been granted for
this afternoon, between the hours of
12 and 4, for an exhibition of reproductions in colours of Canadian pictures.
The exhibition will be open to the
student body for the hours named.
The pictures are those used by Mr.
John Ridington to illustrate a lecture
on "Canadian Art and Artists." Most
of them were collected by Miss Nora
Bateson, who last year was Reference Librarian and is now Librarian
at the Chilliwack Library, of the Fra-
ser Valley Library Demonstration.
The collection includes reproductions in colours of famous early paintings, by such artists as Cornelius
KrieghofF, Jacobi, Homer Watson,
Frank Fowler, and others, together
with a goodly representation of the
"Group of Seven"—Tom Thomson,
Lawrence Harris, Horsman Varley, J.
H. MacDonald and others—and also
of the more modernistic type3 of Canadian art.

Frosh Invoke Fates
For First Time
In Class Draw
Many Frosh were crowded out of
their own class draw on Wednesday
noon when supposedly indifferent
Seniors, Juniors and Sophs dropped
into Arts 100 to see what the gods
would bestow on the Freshmen.
Dr. Shrum, honorary president of
Arts '34, drew the momentous scraps
of paper two at a time and read aloud
the chosen names. The tickets were
given to each Freshette as her name
was called. In cases where the girl
was absent the piece of cardboard was
entrusted to the flustered Freshman.
Doug. Brown, president, stated
that the draw was still open for those
who wished to pay their class fees.
Tickets were given to all those girls
whose names were not drawn.
Before the draw started Alf. Evans
told the audience that tickets for the
Spring Plays were now on sale from
any members of the Players' Club.
Dr. Shrum told the class that this
was his first opportunity of speaking
to them since he had been elected their
honorary president. He wished to
thank them for their wise choice.
VALEDICTORY COMMITTEE
REPORTS GIFT PROGRESS
Arts '31 Makes Final Effort
To Complete Collection
Before Graduation
Continued progress in consolidating
and cataloging of its Valedictory Gift
is reported by the Valedictory Gift
Committee of Arts '31. Weekly meetings have been held since the opening
of the spring term, with the result
that important work of cataloging
and arranging for acknowledgments
has been carried forward at a steady
pace.
The Committee is considering a
project to secure a copy of the special
number which it is expected each
newspaper of the province will publish next July in commemoration of
the Diamond Jubilee of British Columbia's entrance into Confederation.
In addition to providing a rather
unique collection of information on all
parts of the province, this would also
show the extent of newspaper development throughout British Columbia. In all its work the Committee has
received very valuable assistance
from many of the leading newspapers
of the Province.
The Committee hopes to be able to
announce other details of interest at
an early date.
Two Meetings Slated
For 1. R. C.
Two general meetings of exceptional interest to complete the term's
work are announced by the Executive
of the International Relations Club.
The first, to be held March 4, will take
the form of reviews of some of the
books most recently added to the Club
shelf in the Library. On March 10,
through the kindness of Dean M. L.
Bollert, a meeting is to be held at her
home, when Dr. Walter Kotschnig,
General Secretary of the International Student Service, will relate
some of the work which is being done
by this worldwide organization. It is
hoped that during his three day visit
on the Campus, Dr. Kotschnig will be
able to address a student meeting at
the University.
Special Alma Mater Meeting
Called To Debate Enrolment
A special Alma Mater Meeting has been called by the President of the A.M.S. on the receipt of a petition signed by 57 members of the Society, for the purpose of requesting the Provincial
Government to refrain from limiting enrolment at the University.
The sponsors of the meeting consider that any curtailment of the
registration would be harmful, not only to the University of British
Columbia, but to the whole educational system of the Province.

German Club Pays Visit
To Holland for Evening
Mr. Harold Bischoff was the speaker on Monday evening when a meeting of the German Club was held at
the home of Miss Pat Harvey.
Mr. Bischoff dealt with all the most
interesting aspects of Dutch life such
as the popularity of bicycles and
windmills, the commercial success of
the bulb-growing industry, and the
value of the dykes. Pictures were used
to illustrate the attractiveness of
Dutch life. Those of the Ryksmuseum
in Amsterdam were particularly interesting, this being the home of the
Rembrandt Galleries.
Mrs. Roys spoke briefly of Busch,
the originator of Max and Moritz who
have developed into the Katzenjam-
mer Kids, Two strikingly modern
poems were read, one dealing with the
tricks of the two boys, and a 3atire
on the American craze for beating records.
Former Presidents Of A. M. S.
Sends Stadium Contribution
Further contribution to the Stadium Fund under the auspices of the
Publications Board is a cheque for
$10 from A. B. Richards from Ottawa.
Richards, a former president of the
Alma Mater Society, was a leader in
the campaign which resulted in having the University moved to its
present site. He is now in the Economics Branch of the Department of
Agriculture, Ottawa.
Imperial Trade
To be Discussed
At Conference
"Unable to come to any major conclusions of economic policy the Conference after some six weeks of negotiation adjourned with the intention
of meeting within the next twelve
months in order to continue discussion
on the economic aspects of the Conference," stated Leo Gansner in his paper on the "Imperial Conference of
1930" which he read at a meeting of
the Historical Society on Monday at
the home of Robie L. Reid.
In comparing the Imperial Conference of 1926 with that of 1930 "one
finds that in spite of much discussion
on Empire the chief issues were constitutional rather than economic," said
Gansner. That of 1930 was essentially
economic.
"The opening statement of Prime
Minister Ramsay Macdonald was followed by a review of the economic
situation by Mr. J. H. Thomas, the
Secretary of State for the Dominions.
He dealt first with Great Britain,
then with the Commonwealth as a
whole but propounded no suggestion
of any new policy for the stimulation
of inter-imperial trade. Mr. Bennett
as prime minister of the senior Dominion may be said to have set the pace
at the first plenary session of the
conference held on October 8th. After
a clear indication that he was determined to safeguard what the manufacturers of Canada regard as their
special preserves, he declared that for
stimulating Inter-Imperial commerce
a system of reciprocal preferences was
the only possible instrument for successfully stimulating inter-Imperial
trade," said the reader of the paper.
"Mr.   Scullin   on   economic   issues
took a virtually identical line as the
Premier of Canada had taken.    But
he went a step further in making a

PREMATURE BURIAL
Contrary to a notion that seems to be general among the
student body, Free Speech is not dead. The 'Ubyssey' is being
published under no directions but that of the editorial board, and
under no superimposed restrictions.
The editor's apology affected only the relations between himself and President Klinck, and the question of the status of the
Publications Board has yet to be determined.
With the aid of information supplied by the Publications
Board and the Students' Council, the Faculty Council will prepare a report on this matter, probably within a week. These
organizations may then either accept or reject the recommendations that will be made. In all likelihood the Faculty Council's
report will be acceptable to everybody, but at any rate it is
somewhat premature to proclaim the demise of Free Speech in
the meantime.
ON BEHALF OF THOSE ABSENT
The concert arranged by the Musical Society on Thursday,
featuring the C.N.R.V. Salon Orchestra and Muriel Farrel Donallan, talented harpist* is generally considered to have been the
best of the year. The audience was one of the smallest. Members
of the Musical Society express themselves rather strongly about
this poor attendance, and with much justification. Most of the
previous recitals had attracted large crowds, and Thursday's was
expected to be no exception.
On behalf of those who were absent, we wish to say that now
we are sorry we did not go. The Musical Society cannot feel more
annoyed at us than we do at ourselves. These occasional noon-
hours of music are appreciated very much, and we hope that it is
not true that there will be no more this term. If another can be
arranged, we will certainly be present in larger numbers than
ever.
In reply to all this self-reproach, the 'Ubyssey' will only say,
with restraint prompted by pity, 'It serves you right!'
ECONOMIC ISSUES OCCUPY
IMPERIAL CONFERENCE

suggestion for an allocation by arrangement between British and Australian manufacturers of an import
trade valued at between £40 and £45
million from foreign countries in
goods of a type with which Great
Britain could compete."
"As regards Mr. Bennett's proposals" stated Gansner, "it will be found
upon examination that they were not
very tempting. Without making any
suggestion of a compensating diminution of British rates of his tariff
the present high level which could
scarcely fail to cause a curtailment
of British exports to Canada, he was
demanding a wholesale change in the
British fiscal and tariff system." The
inevitable result was that Britain was
unable to accept Mr. Bennett's offer.
"While the chief issues of the conference were economic, numerous matters of a constitutional and political
nature were brought forward. They
were, however, of relatively minor
importance and were of a routine
nature. Among the more important
were questions of nationality in inter-
Imperial relations, of the appointment
of Governors-General and of the status of High Commissioners."

The Publications Board
desires by this means to
extend its thanks to "The
Manitoban," student paper
at. the University of Manitoba, for the words of
sympathy and the bouquet
of lilies sent "on the eve of
the demise of Free Speech
in B. C." Our friends on the
prairie, however, will rejoice to hear that F. Speech
has been found to be merely
in a state of coma, from
which he may yet recover.
"We live in hope."
Notice
Students are reminded that snap
shots of University life are still needed for the scrap page of the "Totem,"
These should lie handed in to the Totem office, or to Isabel Bescoby who is
in charge of the scrap page, before
Feb. 27. Some proofs have not been
returned to Wadds as yet. Unless
these proofs are returned immediately, the Totem staff will have to cease
work until these students find time to
return their proofs,.
MR. FYLES TELLS OF
GARIBALDI'S CHARMS
jjT WOULD like to emphasize some
I of the attractions of Garibaldi
Park. It is typical of all kinds
of mountain scenery; it is a friendly
sort of place, with large areas of flowery meadows, lakes, and good camping places," said Mr. Thomas Fyles,
Chairman of the Vancouver Section of
the Alpine Club in Canada, addressing
a recent meeting of the Vancouver
Institute. In conjunction with his
lecture, Mr. Fyles showed a series of
pictures taken on his various hikes
in the mountains around Vancouver.
The first part of the lecture dealt
with the mountains near Vancouver,
for tho most part those on the North
Shore. These mountains are peculiar
in that nearly all the snow on them
melts during the summer, although
mountains of similar altitude often
are snow-covered all the year round.
"To break through just at sunrise
to new peaks and new scenes is one of
the greatest charms of climbing,"
stated Mr. Fyles. "There is always an
interest in finding new peaks close at
hand that take our best efforts, and
often turn us back."
The latter part of the lecture dealt
for the most part with Garibaldi
Park.
"Garibaldi Park is a very short distance from Vancouver, being not more
than thirty miles away at the nearest
point," said the speaker. "This mountain area is one of the gems of the
mountain ranges in the coast. If it
were as far south of the border as it
is north, it would now be far greater
than Rainier National Park. It is one
of those places that should be preserved for the future, even if others
go," he continued.
In conclusion the speaker said that
there are probably more square miles
of unclimbed area in the Coast Range
than there are in the Rockies, and the
const mountains will likely remain as
a playground for Vancouver people
for many years to'come.

FUN AND FUNDAMENTALS
When the Literary Editor and myself decided to exchange columns for
one issue the prospect seemed bright.
But now there is the question of what
to put in it. When I asked the Literary Bloke she said, "That's your worry." And that was that, as they say
in the best literary circles. (See page
4).
In the first place I have always
failed to see what the title of this column has to do with its contents. The
latter began as a series of uncontrolled semi-literary relapses and then
ascended to an alleged high type of
humour, at least, so the author claims.
For instance, take the last outburst
which expounded the procedure of
arising in the morning and waiting
for the postman. Well, we all do that
so why rave about it? But maybe
sport has ruined my sense of humour.
The trouble with the column is that
the Editor takes herself seriously,
that is, over the column. In other
ways she has quite a sense of humour
as when she invites herself to tea with
me five afternoons a week and sometimes brings her whole staff with her.
This kind of thing, however, is rather
wearing even when it is dutch, which
is often.
To continue. Let us analyse the Literary co-ed. She trips into the Pub.
in the morning, throws open all the
windows, gazes soulf ully at the mountains and the green grass on the parking space and twitters about spring,
breathing in the air and breathing
out the air in ratio of 2:1. Then she
eats her lunch, and then my lunch.
Then she brings out Rhapsody (the
portable) and composes one or two
lyrics on Vancouver as seen from
Stanley Park or the Stadium site as
seen from the Pub. window. Then
comes the lunch. After two or three
teas, her work is over and she takes
the sport staff home. Lately life has
apparently become boring, or maybe
spring is in the air, and she hands
over the column to a host of would-be
assistants and future Muck Editors.
Personally I do not believe she is
writing my column at all. She has
probably enlisted R. A. P. to make a
few dirty digs about soccer and left
it at that. I don't get such a thrill
writing this because after all, anyone
can write reams on nothing or one's
experiences at Chilliwack. Still this
is quite a good Muck Page annex and
fits in well, as such, with "Spirit Rap-
pings."
On looking this over I find it compares favourably with previous "F
and F's" so I think I'll leave it at that
and let the reader draw his own conclusions.
All A.M.S Nominations
Due Before March 10
At the Students' Council meeting
on Wednesday night it was announced
that all nominations for the office of
President of the Alma Mater Society
must be in by March 2. The election
will be held on March 10. All other
nominations for council positions close
on March 10, and elections take place
on March 17.

"Sure, seconded," volunteered the

"What's the score here?" demanded the Secretary.

A MESSAGE FROM ENGLAND
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
letter has been received from H. Trevor Lloyd, a member of the British
Debating Team which met a U.B.C
team last December.
3rd February, 1931.
The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir;
Having now returned to the trivial
round of ordinary student life we are
trying to view in perspective the remarkable three months that we spent
last Fall between Nova Scotia and the
Pacific.
At the time we enjoyed ourselves
immensely and were grateful for the
warmth of Canadian hospitality that
everyone so willingly offered, Now,
looking back over the tour (forgetting
for the moment the turbulence of the
Atlantic and the fact that we had to
land at Glasgow) we have concluded
that Canada is the most excellent
country on this earth (Scotland is
not a country—it's a complex) for
two young debaters to receive the j oiliest, heartiest, noisiest, and most sincere, welcome that anyone could
imagine.
Wherever we went, we announced
that any Canadian student visiting
Britain would be made welcome by
our organizations over here, and now
comes the news that Mr. Gordon
Burns of the N.F.C.U.S. has been
discussing with the Universities plans
for a trip to Europe during this summer. We are delighted to hear of this,
and wish to assure those able to come
over of the warmth of their welcome
on this side, and the pleasure that we
feel at the possibility of receiving the
second N.F.C.U.S. Tour to Europe.
I hope to be able to accompany the
tourists for at any rate a part of their
stay, in an attempt to do something
to repay the generosity of our welcome in Canadian cities.
To other students visiting this side
for study or on holiday may I repeat
that our National Union of Students
is at their disposal for advice and assistance and that I shall be disappoint-
ted if, when they are in or near London, they do not call on me.
I am,
Yours sincerely,
H. Trevor Lloyd.
President.
P.S. Mr. Mitchell wires collect from
the north that he will see that, in the
event of anyone wanting to visit
Scotland, they get a firstrate welcome wherever they go.
Students Of North Van.
To Hold Stadium Dance
A MILD REPROACH
Editor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir;
The other day the Auditorium was
crammed with Students who feared
that the dear old Ubyssey, the organ
of the student body, might be somewhat humiliated by the University
Authorities. Crowds of students so
thronged even the aisles that the Students' Council could with difficulty
make its way through to the platform.
Although the meeting encroached on
the sacred hour of one, every student
stood firm, dutifully safeguarding the
dignity of the student body.
Today, Sir, the student body experienced sheer humiliation—and only
a handful of students present in the
Auditorium at noon were aware of
the fact.
The Musical Society invited the
C.N.R.V. Salon Orchestra, which includes in its membership many of
the foremost musicians of Vancouver,
to play before the student body. The
Wednesday edition of your paper carried a large announcement of this fact
and numerous signs advertising it
were displayed on the campus. Yet
our guests faced a house less than
one-third full.
What could be more humiliating
to the student body than this display
of discourtesy to our guests, of vulgar
indifference to fine music, and of childish disloyalty to an executive working
in the interests of ourselves as individuals and of the future of the University?
This humiliation can never be
amended. The student body is disgraced. There will be, I understand,
no more noon hour recitals this term.
We have only one opportunity to
make amends in some small degree.
We can do something toward making
the Musical Society feel that their
efforts are not wasted upon us by
unanimously supporting their coming
production.
Yours truly,
Francis I. McKenzie.
North Vancouver students of the
University will hold a dance in the
Horticultural Hall February 28 in
an effort to further increase the totel
of the Stadium fund.
The following have consented to act
as patrons:—
Mayor and Mrs. Bridgeman, Ex-
Mayor and Mrs. G. It. Morden, Mr.

THE UBYSSEY
RUGBYSSEY
VARSITY TO MEET VANCOUVER REP. SATURDAY
RUGBY CHANCES STAKED
ON OUTCOME OF CONTEST
On Saturday afternoon when the crack Varsity fifteen trots
on the field at Brockton Point to meet their traditional rivals, Vancouver Rep, the curtain will be rising on the crucial game in the
McKechnie Cup series. As the league stands today, Victoria Rep
and Vancouver are tied for first place with four points each.
Although Varsity has sustained two losses they will tie up the
whole series by winning the coming game and put all three
teams on an equal footing.
Having come out on the long end
of the score in a hard fought struggle
with Victoria three weeks ago, thus
winning their first McKechnie strug-
gle, Varsity supporters have every
reason for being confident that the
team can continue its winning streak.
It is predicted that Varsity will upset
the dope-bucket by avenging their
former defeat at the hands of the city
all-stars.
Not since the memorable season
of 1926-27 has the famous McKechnie
Cup filled its niche in the glass case
in the library hall. That year the
miracle men fought an uphill fight
from the start but finished with the
trophy and the honour of being the
only team to hold the Maoris to a 12-
3 score.
They lost the game to Vancouver
on Thanksgiving day by a 13-8 score.
The second struggle took place in
Victoria on the 4th of January. Victoria, playing spectacular rugby eked
out an 8-0 victory. In their return
match, the Islanders were outclassed
by Varsity, the game ending, Varsity
8, Victoria 3. And now, all depends
on the final match with Vancouver.
The team has worked hard under
the coaching of Harry Lord and Phil
Willis, former Varsity captain.

TEAM PROBABILITIES
FOR IMPENDING GAME
Only One Place Not Decided
Although the team for Saturday's struggle has not been definitely chosen, the coaches intimate that it will be picked from the
following men:—
Howard Cleveland—Among the full backs of British Columbia
Howie is in a class by himself. A driving tackle and a long and accurate kick, combined with a sure pair of hands, make him the outstanding player that he is. 	
Bert Barratt—Captain of the team
and half back is a field general par
excellence. Playing his fifth year on
the first team, records of Bertie's
achievements go back to 1927 when he
starred against the Maoris. Bert
can kick with either foot and to watch
him dummy through an opposing
scrum is a treat.
Bobbie Gaul— Bobbie has been
playing inside three for the past few
games and it is there that he shows
to best advantage. He is a rolling,
twisting speed artist and is always in
position to take advantage of every
break. Bobbie, besides being the smallest man on the team is the fastest and
at the same time possesses more than
his share of "guts."
Dave Ellis—Coming from the city
of the birds where he played for Victoria Rep. Dave caught himself a position on the three line from the start.
A fearless tackle and a tricky swerve,
ensure Dave a place on the team for
the big game.
Art Mercer— Developing almost
over night into one of the best threes
in the province, Art is also assured
of a place in the line-up. Although
slight, Art plays a fearless and agres-
sive game at all times. He kicks well,
tackles hard and moreover is never at
loss no matter what the situation may
he.
Phil Bnrratt— Another of the
greybeards of rugby, Phil will fill the
wing position. Knowing all the tricks
of the game, he is always a useful
man. The opposition has learned to
their sorrow that Phil is one of the
fastest rugby players in the city.
Alan Estabrook—Estie's rugby career also dates back to the days of the
miracle men. He is a threat both on
the defensive and the offensive. When
Estie tackles a man he stays tackled.
For the other three quarter position several men are trying out. Bill
Singer, Doug. Brown and Bill Hall of
the super-Varsity and Chris, Dalton,
captain of the Intermediates, are all
very eligible men. The choice will not
be made until after this has gone to
the press.
Bud Murray—The best forward in
British Columbia, Bud is in a class by
himself as a front line man. Besides
being a splendid kicker, a hard tackier, and a genius in a loose scrum,
Bud possesses the speed to work himself into the three quarter runs, much
to the dismay of the opposition.
Jim Mitchell—Coming from King
George High School where he captained the high school all-stars, Jim
has been a valuable addition to the
team. Playing a steady, hard-working game, Jim fits into the front rank
admirably. Our thanks are due to
Brentwood and King George for
training this man.
Fred Foerster—Fred is another of
the old guard. Along with forwards
like Murray, Mason, etc., he has been
fighting for the coveted trophy for
years. Fred is particularly effective
in the loose where he excels at dribbling. Always on the ball, Fred is a
constant threat.
Glen Ledingham—Weighing a mere 230 lbs. Glen
is the source of much trepidation to the hearts of
his antagonists when he
goes on the rampage. The
amazing thing about Ledingham is his speed. He
once astounded the crowd
at the Point by overtaking Pete Wilson, the Meraloma half.
Dick Nixon—The curse of many a
half back is Dick Nixon, crack breakaway. Dick's persistent aggressiveness, plus his speed and brawn assure
him of a place. Dick is one of the two
or three first class rear rank men in
the province.
Bert Griffin— Although Bert is
light for the scrum, he makes up for
this deficiency by sheer tenacity and
fight. Always on the ball, never beaten, Bert well deserves his position on
the team.
Vic Rogers— Fast for a forward,
Vic is a valuable asset to the rear
rank of the scrum. Playing his second year on the first team, he possesses that experience that ensures
the crowd of a first class performance
from Vic.
Mention might also be made of two
men who, through injuries, have been
compelled to give up the game, at
least for this year. They are Roy Mc-
Connachie with a smashed ankle and
Ken Martin with a torn shoulder. Although injured and unable to play,
the interest of these two men in the
success of the team has never faltered.

CAMPUS SPORT CAMERA
Relay Laurels Fall To Frosh
As Allen Stars In Third Lap
AGRICULTURE JAKESJECOND PLACE
A brilliant piece of running by Alf Allen in the crucial third
lap by which the diminutive speedster passed two men to take the
lead, enabled the Freshmen to cop the Arts '20 relay in the time of
85:08 Wednesday afternoon. The youngsters were followed by
Aggies and Arts '82 both at respectable distances.
Hopes of the Aggies ran high over the first lap as Falls outdistanced all opposition to lead the way. Al. Todd of soccer fame
ran a nice race for Arts '32 to finish
second while he was followed closely
by the Frosh and Science '33 runners.
The second leg saw Bill Smith
panting his way from fourth to first
place for Science '33 while the Aggie
man dropped to fifth place. Arts '32
■nd the freshmen held their places
but Science '32 crept up to fourth.
The Science class, had a small lead
at the beginning of the third lap but
Allen of the '84 squad rapidly overhauled the leaders to give his class a
substantial lead. Ward of Arts '32
paced steadily at the heels of Allen
after passing the Science '33 man,
while the Aggies held their place
Science '33 finished the lap in fourth
position.
The fourth lap was featured by the
Work of Dicks of the Aggies who
■printed all the way to flnisn in second position showing a gain of three
places while Science '32 and '33 lost
places accordingly.
The fifth section of the grind was
the killing hill on Fourth Avenue and
here Dave Todd gained steadily all the
way to increase the yearlings' lead.
The other racers remained in pretty
much the same order except that
Science '83 passed their brethren of
'32.
The sixth lap saw no appreciable
change.
The seventh mile dashed the hopes
of those wishing to see the Frosh beaten as Swift tore away from all opposition to give the anchor man an unassailable lead. Here Fletcher of
Arts '32 ran a good lap to overhaul
the Aggie while the remaining entries
were strung out along the Boulevard.
The Frosh finished well about 35
yards ahead of Aggies who regained
their lost place on the last lap. Arts
'32 followed some distance ahead of
Science '33 while Science '32, Science
'84, Arts '31, Arts 33 and Science '31
straggled in the order named.
The recent rain prevented a new
record being set the old one, established by Arts '30 in 1928, being 34.38.

Varsity Senior soccermen are putting in long hours of practice these
days in preparation for the return
game with Chilliwack All Stars which
will be played at Con Jones Park
probably the first week in March. The
engagement will be played as a preliminary to the Pacific Coast league
fixture between St. Saviours and
Westminster Royals and tickets will
be sold on the campus.
In the first match played at Chilliwack the collegians could only draw
with the country squad although they
enjoyed the major portion of the play.
Performing on city pitch before a
partisan crowd the round ball men
expect to trounce their rivals from the
Cherry City.
The Gold and Blue men will present
their strongest possible lineup, the
same which has done duty in league
games this term. Announcement of details will be made later but advance
information speaks of a monster pep
meeting and demonstration to precede
the game.
This Saturday the collegians have
no league fixture but a friendly maybe arranged with Coquitlam.

In an exhibition relay race the Minnows,

girls.
Both teams were uninterested in
affairs, and only bothered about tossing in the occasional basket as a
matter of form. By half time the
score had reached the tremendous
total of 3-3.
After being harangued by Coach
Barbarie, the Co-eds did a little better; in fact, they even scored six
more points, while the Tories were accounting for four. But who cares?
The team is in the play-offs and a
cinch for B. C. honors. Why bother
about a little matter of a league game?
Varsity—C. Menton (2), J. Whyte
(2), G. Munton (5), M. Campbell, V.

Ice Men To Play
U. of Washington
The Varsity smooth surface squad
is planning to bring its season to a
successful conclusion by proving the
superiority of Canuck hockey players
to those from the south of "the line."
This demonstration will take place
when the local boys hook up with the
University of Washington ice stars
in about two weeks time.
The U.B.C. bunch trailed its local
league opponents throughout the winter but the team has improved consistently and only a very poor start
prevented it from placing higher in
the league than was actually the case.
Furthermore, since the last match of
the city schedule the campus hockey-
ists have been practising assiduously.
Ernie Carswell, the crack college centre, is back with the home crew again,
as is Irving Smith who will be a real
acquisition to the defense.
The University of Washington is
reputed to be fielding an exceptionally
strong aggregation this year but it
is felt at U.B.C. that a Canadian college could never be guilty of losing to
a squad of Yankees in Canada's National game. Therefore, given reasonable student support, the Varsity ice
men figure that they can show the
southerners how hockey is played
when the zero hour arrives.
Seniors To Vie With Juniors
In Crucial Soccer Tilt
George Grant and his Arts '31 inter-class soccermen will take the field
with their backs to the wall against
Arts '32 today. The seniors must win
to stay in the running for the handsome trophy donated by the Soccer
Club. Education is at present leading
the race one point ahead of the Arts
'31 the holders of the cup and both
teams have one game left to play, the
teachers being billed to tangle with
Arts '34 next week.
Education cannot lose the title unless the Frosh score a goal against the
pedagogue net but this is very likely
since the yearlings have the strongest
forwards of all the teams.
There are still two games left to
be played in the Science section and
present indications seem to point to
Science '34 topping the heap. The
winners of each league will play off
for the Cup.

Sportorial
(An Interpolation by the Literary Editor)
Anyone desirous of criticizing a Sport Editor should first consider several factors in his unhappy lot. We, the Literary Editor,
have in the last few days seen a light concerning this matter. We
have attempted the onerous task of sportorial writing. And believe you me (or us; we are not used to writing anything ending in
"orial." and still feel a little uneasy about the first person plural)
it is enough to turn the steadiest brain. Our only wonder is how
the S. E. has borne up under it as well as he has.
As we see it, it's this way about a sport editor; if he publishes
reports according to one executive's ideas, they are called (by a
certain element seeking for sensation) colorless, weak, or even
"high-hat." If he publishes reports according to another authority's notions, they are called (by another element seeking the
Better Things of Life) biased, exaggerated, radical, or just plain
cock-eyed.
And either way the S. E. gets his head taken off, usually
gently, but always firmly.
Is this cricket, we ask you ?
Suppose, in a burst of poetic ecstacy, we referred, in a Lit.
Sup., say, to the well-known elevation of landscape across the bay
as "the white-crowned guardians of the azure sound." Would several excited patrons of literature dash into Pub and demand the
instant resignation of the Literary Editor? They would not;
chiefly because no one would give a hoot. But suppose they did
give a hoot, several hoots in fact. Even so the thing would be
unthinkable.
Yet, if in a moment of hopeless fatigue brought on by writing
many hundred/ words designed to pique the jaded appetites of
vicarious sports fans, the Sport Editor refers to "some pretty
soccer being dished up to roaring multitudes who numbered
fully fifteen strong"—well, for our part, we are jealous of the
S. E. If there was one-tenth of the riot about a grammatical weakness in the Literary Supplement that there is about a flaw in the
Sport Page, the campus would resound with cries of joy from the
Literary Department.
However, for this opportunity to present words of wisdom to
the large proportion of the campus which reads the Sport Page
with care, while (wisely, we are compelled to admit) eschewing
the Literary Supplement, we hereby tender grateful thanks to our
friend the Sport Editor.
Come over and see us some time.
Grass Hockey Men
Will Meet Duncan
The Men's Grass Hockey Club will
play hosts to a visiting team from
Duncan on Saturday when it will entertain the Islanders to a luncheon in
the Cafeteria at 12:30; this to be
followed by a friendly game at Connaught Park at 2:30.
City league games for the coming
week end nave been cancelled in order that the finals of the O. B. Allen
Cup may be played. Since Varsity has
already been eliminated from this contest the date was open for a return
game with the squad from across the
Straits of Juan de Fuca.
During the Christmas holidays the
University paid a flying visit to the
Island and figured in a two match
series with Duncan's best. The results of these contests were not entirely satisfactory to the college aggregation as it came out on the short
end of the score in both encounters.
Since that time the Varsity eleven
has been itching to revenge itself on
the Island city team and consequently
when the representatives of the two
clubs meet on Saturday a fight to the
death is likely to be staged.
The visitors plan to arrive on Friday afternoon and leave after the
game the following day. It is not certain at present whether a full team
will be able to cross the water but if
this is found impossible players from
one of the local squads will be delegated to fill the vacancies.
Varsity's team for the impending
battle will line up as follows:—Dicks;
Lee, Sangha; Hughes Spurrier, Jake-
way; Stevenson, Semple, DesBrisay,
Knight, Ward.
Spares:—Holmes, Barr  Merritt.

at 2:30 o'clock. If the boys can come
out on the right end of the score they
will probably start out on a tour of
the league which will end in their
heading the table. A while ago the
Kitsilano gang downed V.A.C. in a
well fought football war; last week
Varsity and V.A.C. broke even, one
all; and this week the dopesters are
undecided as to the outcome of the
Varsity-V.A.C. game.
The team has been turning out regularly for practice three days a week
and shows improvement over its last
week's form. The return of several
regulars to the team has raised the
standard of the backfield to its old
level. However there is no Science
Ball this Friday; so the squad should
be able to keep awake long enough to
turn back the Meraloma hordes.
Return Contest Is Scheduled
With Island Hockey Ladies
U.B.C. grass hockey ladies or coeds or what you will are in festive
mood this week in view of their approaching tilt with the misses from
Duncan, the said tilt to take place at
Connaught Park, Saturday, at 11 of
the clock.
Victoria college also paid a visit
to the local stick wielders with disastrous results to themselves but the
point is that this is the only other
outside match which these girls will
indulge in this season. And therefore
(we have heard this before but still
the space must be filled) they will
trot out their strongest possible lineup.
It seems that the Duncan shin
smackers walloped the Point Grey net
bulgers at Christmas time when a
friendly visit was paid and a little
game played during afternoon tea.
However that may be things should
be different this time as lately the
Varsity girls have had a habit of rising to the occasion.
The following persons will carry
sticks and wear pads for the Gold and
Blue: Harris, Teppo, McDonald, McKay, Mouat, Leigh, Burridge, Sellars,
Carter, Sutton, and Laurel Rowntree.
