FIRST SOCCER TEAM TO MEET
ST. PAUL'S AT CON JONES PARK
One of the most important games of Varsity's First Soccer season Is
scheduled for this Saturday ln Con Jones' Park, at 1.45. The game is a
Mainland Cup fixture against 8t. Paul's, and If the Varsity team Is successful, there Is a good chance of getting Into the finals, Two weeks ago the
team beat the Sons of England 5—2, and If lt shows the same spirit this
week-end, it should be able to defeat the St, Paul's aggregation.
The St. Paul's team Is fast and shifty, is experienced and much more
finished than Varsity. Varsity's team contains many good players and some
potential stars; hut relies chiefly on speed and ability to seise a break, Soccer fans throughout the city are looking forward to a fierce game on Saturday,
The line-up will be substantially the same as in the last game. Perhaps
the most outstanding star carrying the Varsity colors Is Ouy Waddington
at outside left. Waddington, who halls from Victoria, has a beautiful cross
and Is very fast. He is certainly an asset to the squad. Besides Ouy on
tbe forward line, there are Lorrle Baker and Max Evans, both of whom play
a stellar game, and should be able to pound the pigskin between the St. Paul
goal posts. Vern Wright at outside right, and Mel Gaudin al Inside right,
are both men who can be depended upon. Oaudin is very fast, has a fine
shot and excels in the dribbling game, so that if he gets half a chance he
should be able to tally for the Blue and Qold. Wright's forte Is defensive
work, but. he Is also a reliable forward.
The old standup in the half-back line will be on deck. BUI Phillips at
center half, and Ledlngham and Robertson in the left and right half-back
positions, form a good working combination, They are all hard workers, and
make a half-back line which cannot be bettered ln the league. Crute and
Shields are Varsity's two full-backs, and with Elmer Anderson ln goal make
a defensive wall hard to pierce.
The St. Paul team plays the Scotch short passing game, which VarBlty
will have to work hard to beat. They are all fast, aggressive and withal
fine sportsmen. The Blue and Qold team will have its work cut out for it
when they go en the Held to-morrow afternoon.
There are about forty teams In the Mainland Cup competition, and so a
knockout series is necessary. This means that if Varsity should lose tomorrow, they are out of the running entirely. It Is therefore absolutely
necessary that Varsity win thla game. Even such a number as fifty students
might make the difference between victory and defeat. Tho support given
the Soccer team so far this season simply has not existed. This is a critical
game, and the students owe it to the team to give some spirited assistance.
Varsity and St. Paul's are perhaps the two most popular teams in the city.
Both are well supported by the public.
The Soccer team, which saw fourteen hundred students at the Maori
game, asks fifty students for its critical match It is to be hoped that other
branches of sport at Varsity will make an effort to be represented at Saturday's game.
Spring Play Set
For March 16-19
"The Romantic Young Lady" will
be presented ln the University Auditorium on March the sixteenth. This
Spanish comedy, highly praised during Its production in New York, London, and Madrid, will receive Its first
Canadian presentation by the University Players' Club.
Some of the Frosh, unfamiliar with
Spring Plays of the past, do not realize the privilege they receive In see
Ing an excellent modern comedy,
played hy actors couched to almost
professional standards. Western Canadians have few opportunities of see
Ing those dramas which hold the attention of the literary critics and Intellectual circles abroad. Our students may appreciate the fact when
they learn that, the club has already
been besieged with contracts from up-
country towns anxious to witness the
performance. From one of these the
well-known principal of a large high-
school writes: "As a matter of fact,
the play is growing Into a tradition
now, which each succeeding generation of students takes something of a
handing down to those of the following year." And again: "In fact the
people here have so little opportunity
for seeing any drama of quality now
that we till feel quite a missionary
seal In doing our little part towards
your appearance here."
The cast will play first at New
Westminster on Thursday, March 10.
Tho Vuncouver performances will be
given Wodnestlay, March 16 to Saturday, March 19. Tho date sot for
Nanaimo Is March 21, and if possible
Latlner and Courtney will be taken
In during the same month, in May
they will go on tour to Victoria, under
the auspices of the Klwanls Club, antl
to Chtlllwack under those of the l.O
D.E. After this will follow presentations at Hevelstoke, Salmon Ann, Vernon, Kulowna, Pentioton, Nelson,
Trail. Crouton ami Cranbrook.

FROSH RUGGERS
LOSE TO SOPHS
Battle of Vanity's "Hope*"
Down on the Varsity oval Wednesday afternoon the battling sophomores defeated the crack Frosh squad
3—0 in Interclass rugby, thus up
setting the dope-bucket with the biggest splash of the season. All rugby
dopesters who figured the sophs as
the rankest of rank outsiders were
drowned In the resulting flood.
Frosh team did not talk fit for publication after the gamo but wiseacres
on the sidelines declare the Frosh
lost because they were too excited
about taking their first girl out to
their first dance that night. Something was obviously very wrong with
the little innocents.
Even the appearance of the Fresh
at Kick-off was in their favour. All
the yearlings were neatly clad in the
regulation green-striped Jersoys with
their hair combed. The sophs looked
like recent jallbreaks lining clad in
everything from an old Maori sweater
to cast off undershirts. No one can
say the sophs did not play an extremely robust game. The cherubims, however, showed a decided disinterest In
tackling, probably being afraid of
marring their angelic beauty nnd so
handicapping themselves for the Hotter Baby contest that evening. Fur-
rls earned much shrill applause from
tho two feminine '20 supporters when
ho dashed through for the only soore,
Mahon easily missing the convert.
Expectations of a Frosh victory were
dissipated by the polished exhibition
of fumbling given by the kiddles. Of
nil the children only curly headed
little Hurtle Iliirratt and wee freckled
little Jackie ItlehiirilMon can lie said
to have faced the enemy with steady
hands und travelling feel, For the
surprising sophs Farrls, Todd, Taylor
und Million chased the bull und thu
Frosh  with equal vim,
On Saturday at noon Arta '2!» meet
the Science bruisers Iii the final game.
The Sophs may set the dopo bucket
right on end by I rumpling on tho red
shirts of Science hut It will be little
short of u miracle, The Artsmen are
confident, that with a bevy of shrieking sophettes on the sido-llnos to demoralize the hermit engineers, vie
tory will he assured, Sclonce Intend
to give the finest Maori haka ever
seen on local fields  before the game.
Cross Country Won by
Selby—Barton 2nd
The cross country run last VVednes
day wus won hy Helby of Science "10,
nnd his time was 14.(15. Carl Barton,
Fdncatton, ran a close second, and it
was by strategy that Selby overcame
Barton's lead.
The race Itself was a groat success
and much credit Is due to Carl Bar'
ton, for the way in which he has Introduced this form of sport at the
University. Science '30 had little difficulty ln currying off the honors, and
they demonstrated their well-known
class spirit by turning out in large
numbers for the run, Dr. Davidson
and Bob Granger handled the race.
About twenty enthusiastic harriers
started and practically all these finished, although many mishaps were
encountered on the way. The course,
approximately two miles in length,
was well chosen, and Selby ln winning the event, demonstrated that he
Is a timber cruiser, a hurdler, a climber, and a pathfinder, an well as a runner. Moreover, he bravely faced the
perils of the Aggie Bull Pen, even
though he did lose no time in climbing over the fence out of danger. As
the race progressed the course got
worse. Soon the runners found themselves in the Point Grey Jungles, falling over logs, crashing through the
undergrowth, and leaping over the
prostrate bodies of their unlucky rivals. The jungles, however, were
soon left behind, and the cattle country came next. The boundary fence
separated this from the agricultural
fields, antl here the runners picked
their way across the soft ploughed
land, finally to reach the firm roadbed. This, however, did not lust long,
and when the corner was turned bringing the finish line Into view, the final
sprint, was made through ruts of mud,
water, and slippery ooae. In spite of
this handicap, the lenders made a fine
sprint to the finish, antl It wns here
that Selby passed Barton, who was
having trouble with his footing.
In the meantime Frank Elliot,
Campbell Duncan, and Woods, followed the wrong trail, claiming that th"
arrow had been turned. They discovered I heir error, and after straggling
through the jungle for a while, they
suddenly found their way out when
helped along by "the thundering herd."
Some say the bulls meant no harm,
but the harriers were out to run, and
did not wait to Investigate.
Taking everything Into consideration, the race was a decided success,
and this run will soon be one of die
great events in the f'tilverslfy sport
calendar.
The result.! of Wednesday's race
were: (I) Selby, Sc. ;.tu; (2) Barton,
Ed.; (3) DesHrisny, Arts '29; (-1)

ARTS '20 RELAY RACE WILL BE
RUN WEDNESDAY, FEB. 23rd
The result or the training which our
track athletes huve been undergoing
now for the past few weeks will reach
a climax on Wednesday, February 23,
as will also the excitement of the
whole student body. On that date
will be run off the Arts '20 Relay; an
event that Is now an annual classic
with a tradition behind It. The race
was founded in 1020 by the graduating
class ln order to establish a tradition

LINDSAY SPEAKS ON
STRIKEJN BRITAIN
Approximately four hundred students and faculty listened to Mr. Kenneth Lindsay in Applied Science 100
last Tuesday at 2 p.m. Mr. Lindsay
paid a rush visit to the University,
as lt was not known until Monday
night that he would De ln the city, but
when he did arrive and addressed two
or three History classes, his fame
spread over the campus like an epidemic, due chiefly, It Is understood,
to the women students.
Mr. Lindsay Is a former president
of the Oxford Union and Is travelling
under the auspices of the League for
Industrial Democracy. Ills occupation at home is administering poor
law relief to Stepney, an exceedingly
poor district of East London containing a population of 250,000. He has
endeavored on one or two occasions
to secure enough votes In a general
election to give him a seat in Ihe
House of Commons, but so far has
hern defeated by substantial majorities, esase.
Mr. Lindsay Is a most fluent speaker, has a delightfully easy platform
manner, Is very humorous, and last
but not least, is good looking. The
topic of his discourse was "The Brit-
IMi General Strike," and this he treated comprehensively, putting his audience Into a state of complete hilarity
at well-spaced Intervals. The speaker
traced the causes of the general
strike directly to the Inactivity of
England's basic Industries, and paint
ed a vivid picture of conditions in the
('Id Country immediately preceding
the strike. The limitations of his
topic, however, did not prevent Mr
Lindsay from giving Ms own rear
(ions to our southern cousins anil
their educational system; he lias just
spent three months In the Cniteii
States  visiting  various  universities,
It is a privilege for this institution
lo meet men such as Mr. Lindsay,
antl we sincerely hope that this privilege will be extended to us as frequently as possible.
ultlmato home. To achieve thla pur*
pose it was run over a course starting
at the site In Point Orey and finishing at the old buildings In Falrjflew.
Last year, however, when the new
home had become a concrete fact,
the track Club, who have charge of
the event, decided that there was no
longer anything to be gained in ad*
tiering to the old course, and therefore, for the flrst time, a new course
was run. But tradition has proved
Its strength, and, in consequence of
much opposition to last year's policy,
a return Is being made this year to
the original course, with the difference that the starting and finishing
points will be reversed.
Twelfth Avenue and Willow Street,
The race will start about 8:80 at
and will continue along Twelfth to
Maple Street, where the flrst lap will
finish. The second lap is down Maple
to Broadway, along Broadway to Yew
and down Yew to Fourth Avenue,
where the third runner will start out
on the long straight stretch along
Fourth to Colllngwood, The fourth
lap extends out to the Deaf and Dumb
school and is slightly upgrade all the
way, while the fifth is up the steep
hill to Tenth and along to Tolmie
Street. The sixth ends about a
quarter of a mile Into the University
grounds, and the last two complete
tho stretch, finishing up in front of
the Administration Building.
Among the classes entering teams
thla year are Arts '27, '28, '29, '80;
Science '30, possibly '29, and Education *27. According to some experts
their last team has the best chances.
It Is composed of men like Barton.
Tarr, Potter, Smith, Vincent, Gallagher, Crees and Ball, all of whom
have run now for three or four years.
Among others, Arts '27 has Bailey,
Elliott, Mulhern and Mottley, winner
of the Western Canada Collegiate
half-mile, and that should mean something. Stars on other teams are Bulger and McWilliams for Arts '28; Pat
Taylor, Tommy Burgess and Desbrls-
ay for Arta '29 and Selby for Science
'30. Very little that Is definite Is
known about Arts '30; some consider
it n dark horse, while other declare
that it has absolutely no chance of
making a place.
In 1921 Arts '25 came flrst, with
the Aggie's t"arn second and Arts '27,
men freshmen, (bird. In 1925, these
last copped first place for themselves
putting '25 second. Last year '27
dropped back to third again, first
place being tnken by the Arts '29
freshmen team. Arts '26, the nucleus
of Education's team this year, was
second.

were rend by the secretary. Mention
wns then made of the price of the
tickets for tho Science Dance. These

WORDS WRITTEN ABOUT WORDS SPOKEN
In the correspondence column two letters appear, evoked by remarks on debating in this column of our last issue. Both letters contain essentially similar opinions, ulthough the writer of one Heems to
have caught something of the viewpoint of our editorial.
We persist in our statement that the standard of debating has, in
this college, been lowered, and we can make that statement without
reference to "wins and losses" which^o not set any ntnndard of debating. Our more discerning correspondent suggests that "talent is the
measuring stick" and so it in; merely because debaters of this university measure thirty-seven inches against the yardstick of debaters in
Other universitios, there is no renHon to suppose that they have attained
even so much as a desirable height of forensic excellence. The some
correspondent, however, does not fare so well in his following sentence
in which he flatly contradicts himself, "We may not havo men of tho
calibre of some of our predecessors—but—I would not say that our
debating standards havo been lowered;" conceding the point that
present debaters are less skilled, he still tries to maintain thnt the
atandard of debating is unaffected.
Both correspondents admit that certain members of faculty have
given "valuable time and invaluable aid in assisting and advising
debaters" which is coaching in as proper a sense of the word as anyone
could wish. We don't mind if debaters are coached; our former
editorial implied that some of them could do with a lot more direction,
along this line.
We believe it is now time for a slight re-organization of tho three
divisions governing debating in this college; the Men's Lit. und the
Womens' Lit. nnd the office of the Debates Manager could function to
greater effect as a centrally controlling body.
EXTORTIONATE SCALPING
Prior to every dance of this student year, scalpidg lias flourished
and brought forth abundant fruits of profit, to those students who
have indulged in it. The practice and its practitioners are not confined to any faculty or year but arc abroad in our midst as members
of every faculty and ever year. Scalped tickot^Jjave been sold at a
profit of from fifty to one hundred and fifty per cent, perhaps at an
even greater profit. Furthermore, certain of these student brokers
obtain as many as six tickets before auctioning them for a proportionately lucrative gain.
Scalping was, long ago, i'orseen by the poet whose itinerant
hawker of pardons thus exclaimed against it.
"0 glotonye, fill of eiirsodnessc."
Having become a fact of our university life, it was forbidden
by a Council regulation. It is, however, quite impossible for the
Council to seek out the offenders and hail them into court. The
practice can only be extirpated by two factors which, instead of
endeavoring to control it, eneuiirage its presence by pretending
to ignore it; namely, the officials in elm nre ni' the sale of tickets
and student opinion. The former should, as far as possible, refuse to sell tickets to those who are not going to use them; the
latter, instead of tolerating scalping as a necessary manifestation
of the acquisitive propensity of the race, should either refuse to
pay the scalper's price, or expose his methods. Scalping will continue with us as long as student opinion is indulgent towards it.
So long, too, will we have within our halls a coterie of knaves who do
not scruple to gratify their cupidity.
WHAT THE LIBRARY IS FOR
Having departed for a few issues from our usual didactic editorials, we find that the general weakening of student morale, and discipline is deplorable. As a result, we find ourselves of necessity back
again in the same old rut, harping upon the same topics, now worn
almost threadbare. This time our complaint is in regard to conditions
for study in the library—a place, originally intended for this pursuit,
not meant to be a rendezvous for gabbing Freshettes and love-sick
Seniors.
The library has of late been given special attention by University
Authorities, in an effort to create for students the best possible environment for study and to place nt their disposal the very best facilities.
The students, however, in proportion as they roccive these improved
conditions, abuse them and make the library an impossible place even
for those who want to study. This is hardly a fitting reward for the
efforts of the Library Committee and of tlio Librarians. No more is it
playing fair with fellow students who realize the use of the library antl
come there to tako advantage of tho opportunities provided for them.
A little less gossiping in the study concourses nnd a little more concentration on real study while in tho building will show a respectable
appreciation of opportunities,	
Mr. Gomery Makes
Plea for Authors
A most Interesting lecture was
given by Mr. Percy Gomery, President
of the Canadian Authors' Association,
Wednesday noon, on "Canadian Authors and Canadianlsm."
Mr. Gomery spoke chiefly on the
lack of interest taken by Canadians
ln Canadian authors and their books,
despite the excellent work that has
been done by our authors towards
producing a national literature,
Canadian authors alwuys have great
dlfllculty in having their works print
ed In Canada. The publishers seem
to think that what is written by Canadians will have no Interest for Can
min, or If It has their imprint, for
people outside of Canada. "Many
people," said Mr. Gomery, "aro willing to read what Is said by ('una-
dlans If under an American cover."
Ah an example of this reluctance to
publish Canadian works, Mr. Gomery
stated that he had sent a series of
articles to several Canadian publishing companies, who would not prim
them. He then sent them to the
Btatcs, and acceptance of the articles
was Immediately telegraphed to htm
at two and one-half times the price
that he had asked In Canada. He also
Kiive several other examples, one of
them the case of Ralph Connor, who
unsuccessfully sent the manuscript of
"Black Rock" to a number of pub
Ushers, and then finally sent $500 to
a company to pay the cost of printing.
Some Canadian books unknown to
Canadians have been translated Into
foreign languages. Charles G. 1). Roberts says that although he Ih always
warmly received In Canada, his literary work Is not appreciated here.
What shows this lack of Interest in
Canadian books and not their lack of
merit, In that Denmark, Australia and
many other countries buy more books
by Charles G. I). Roberts than do
Canadians.
As un attempt to bring Canadian
authors before the people, there Is,
each year, a book week. Authors
"who have gained prestige abroad'
return to Cunatla for this week.
Mr, Gomery maintained that Canadians tend to bellt:le their own literature. One Canadian pronounced
L, M. Montgomery's novels as having
sunk io the lowest level of literature.
These books hnve been accepted all
over the worltl as among the best
books written for girls. Mr. Gomery
wanted to know why it was necessary
for Canadians to belittle their own
literature, especially after lt has been
accepted all over the worltl,
Mr. (Joinery remarked that he was
not attempting to say that all Canadian works nre good, but it. Is his
opinion that only from nlany books
will a masterpiece arise. Mr. Gomery
believes that a national literature Is
of the greatest importance to :. country. He pointed out that the history
of the Hebrews, all that we know today of the ancient civilization of their
time, remains with us tlirougn their
writers. Although the Hebrews were
a second-rate nation, with no artists,
Ihey  imd  writers.
Mr.   (Joniery   closed   his   stinng  plen
fur    Ciiliitdlan    literature    with    lliese
words:     "We are the creators of fan
atllaii  books."

LETTERS CLUB
On Tuesday evening, February 15,
the Letters Club met at the home of
Mrs. S. D. Scott, 395 14th Ave. W.
The paper for the evening, on A. E.
Housman, given by Mr. Donald Calvert, was of great merit, Although
Housman has written only two thin
volumes of poetry, namely; "The
Shropshire Lad," and "Lost. Poems,"
he cun not be designated as a minor
poet, Writing during the "decadent
movement" ln the late eighties, Housman deserved great credit for his
originality, healthful vigor, and the
classic perfection of his versification,
Willi well-chosen and frequent examples, Mr. Calvert showed that Housman's philosophy had a note of sadness and of resignation. After discussion ou the paper, Miss Mllla Allium concluded the programme by
singing delightfully some Russian
folksongs.

Editor of the Ubyssey.
Dear Sir: t
I take special pleasure in answering the editorial ln Tuesday's Issue
entitled, "The Debating System," he-
cause there are certain statements in
it which are contrary to fact. First
it states that, "lt must be acknowledged that the standard of debating
has .... dropped until lt is now hanging at considerably less than half-
mast." There have been three International debates during this and last
term Involving four teams and all but
one of those teams won. Surely this
does not, In any way, substantiate the
above quoted statements.
Again the article refers to "the
hurriedly chosen nnd coached speakers with which wo have tried to maintain our place In "forensic circles."
The obvious retort Is to ask where
the coach Is? Certain professors of
the university have given Invaluable
assistance and consistent encouragement to debaters but no none has over
performed the duties of a coach. The
University of Idaho, against which
we debated last term, has a coach
paid four thousand dollars a year,
and yet our debaters won both here
and in Idaho. This is what the editorial refers to as trying "to maintalu
our place ln forensic circles."
No team In elthor this or last term
has been "hurriedly chosen" because
the system of choosing speakers is
so framed as to avoid that v*ry fault.
If the editorial wishes to sponsor a
a more limited program of debating,
why does lt stoop to find arguments
which aro contrary to fact? The
only sane conclusion to come to is
that the writer of the editorial is Ignorant of what he writes.
As for the main point of the editorial that "no offer has been made
by the executive involved to cut Its
coat uccordlng to its cloth," lt might
bo pointed out that the Ubyssey could
help ullevlato the present conditions
by making an effort to back debates
by merely attending them, though It
is doubtful whether this action would
not be Inconsistent with Its present
policy of destructive criticism.
Hoping that this may And its way
Into your columns,
I am, Sir, etc.
Paul Murphy.
February 16, 1927.
Editor  "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
You will perhaps allow me a little
space In your columns to reply In my
official capacity as Debates Manager,
to an editorial "The Debating System,"
which appoared recently.
The assertion was made In the
above mentioned editorial that the debating standard of this university had
been considerably lowored. Four debates have taken place so far this year
nnd of these II. n. C. has been the
victor In three. If debates are to be
Judged from the point of view of wins
and losses then we have occasion to
be proud of ourselves. But if talent
Is to be your measuring stick, and
Hint I take it, is your intention, there
is perhaps a glimmer of truth ln what
you say. We tuay not have men of
I tie caliber of some of our predecessors
at this university hut In spite of thnt
fact I would not say that our debating
standards have been lowered. Even
if it had, that would be no sign for
provocation for the Idea of a debate
is to train the men to think clearly
and quickly and to speak with some
assurance of self-confidence before u
public gathering. Such qualities are
only gained by experience nnd the
more experience the better.
Your statement that "speaking talent could he . . .developed tn local
meetings", is one that is not only
timely but also true. However this
field of debating lies outside my jurisdiction as Debates Manager. The cure
for this ill lies in the establishment of
a Debates Council to control and outline policies for all debates—local,
city, and  Intercollegiate,
This article contains reference "to
hurriedly chosen and coached speakers" nt. this university. That debaters
nre "hurriedly chosen" Is not so, as
any Intercollegiate Debater who has
been through the grind of try-outs
will be able to inform the writer of
the editorial If he should cure to en
quire. Nor are debaters "coached" In
the proper sense of thnt word. Certain
members of Faculty do give their
valuable time and Invaluable aid In
assisting and advising the debaters---
they do this ut our request und for
their services ninny thanks are due.
Very truly yours,
VV.  II. TAYLOIl.
KDITOIl'S NOTE: Wo refer our
correspondents to our current editorial
column; but will ileal here with the
old bowl of "destructive criticism"
raised by one of them. We ure prepared to itrguo that the criticism In
the edltorlnl he attacks wus not
destructive, but essentially constructive. Further, If criticism be destructive the fault lies not with thut criticism, (If well-taken) but rather with
the condition of affairs which evoked
It.
Big Block Committees
Appointed by M.A.A.
At the Monday meeting of the
Men's Athletic Executive, the most
Important matter decided was the
appointment ot the Committee on Big
Block Awards. The amendment to
the M. A. A. constitution, made last
fall provides for a committee of five
members to make final decisions on
lettji awa d«. Much of the work in
the awarding of letters Is routine, as
the qualifications for letter recognition are laid down in the constitution
of the Association. The principal
duty of this committee Is to decide
points on which there Is some doubt.
Cases of players Injured before their
quota of games Is made up, special
awards for outstanding merit and
honorary letter awards are under the
jurisdiction of this committee. The
formation of a Big Block Club has not
received mention lately but should
come up shortly.
Tho committee on Big Block
Awards Is appointed by the Men's
Athletic Executive and consists ot
tho President of the M, A. A„ one
faculty member, one alumnus and two
suitable undergraduate tn one ot the
senior years. This year's committee
Is as follows:
Faculty Representative: Dr. Letson,
Alumnus Representative: Art. Lord.
President of M. A. A.: Tanny Butler,
Undergrad.   Representatives:    Frank
Elliott and Bill Phillips.

NOVEL METHOD OF
DEBATEFOR U.B.C.
On the evening of Thursday, February 24th, In King Edward High School
Auditorium the Universities of Wash-
Inton and British Columbia will match
words in a debate.
The subject of the debate Is "Resolved that Political Democracy is a
Failure." Messrs. V. R. Hill and 0.
S. Rowland will uphold the negative
of this resolution here while Norman
Brown and David Steele will travel to
Seattle to support the resolution as lt
stands, against the best forensic
talent that Washington has to offer.
The most interesting and most remarkable feature about the debate
will be the style ln which tt will he
conducted. The "Oregon plan of debate" which has been tried out successfully In some of the Colleges to
the South will he Introduced here for
the first time.
This consists mainly in legalistic
cross-examination on the platform.
One speaker on each aide devotes hla
time solely to the cross-questioning of
the other team from whom short
answers are required. Mr. V. R. Hill
will be the cross.examlner at home
and should prove exceedingly capable
for the task.
At the request of the University of
Washington both contests are to bo
of a non-decisive character. This has
been done In order that the stress maybe laid on debating for debates sake
and not merely for the glory of be-
ng the successful team.
Tickets for this debate may be procured from the Debates Manager or
from the Women's Hooters Club. All
seats are 25c.

FINAL HOOP HOP
OF YEAR ON SAT.
Tho big athletic event ot this week
end is the Intercollegiate basketball
game ln which the Varsity Senior
A team tangles with Seattle Pacific
College, Saturday night ln the Normal Gym. This game Is scheduled
for nine o'clock and will be preceded by two Interesting preliminaries,
one a girls' Senior A exhibition affair
and the other the Senior B men vs.
Jordan River tussle. Prom ten to
twelve the -usual popular Hoop Hop
will be staged.
Tho Intercollegiate affair should be
one of the most interesting games of
the Basketball season. The senior A
men are at their very best, as the
close same against the King Ed. Old
Boys last week has shown. This
match went Into an overtime period
and the final score was 23-22 for the
Old Boys. The Blue and Oold quintette has been Improving markedly
of late. Everyone Ih looking for a
line scrap Saturday night, and the
I'fict that these boys from the States
are Varsity guests should attract a
large crowd of rooters.
Tim Senior B game should be no
less Interesting. Jordan River beat
the second squad on the Victoria invasion, but the margin of victory
was one lone point. The Blue anil
Gold is out for revenge and the
chances of the former decision belnK
reversed are very good Indeed. The
Varsity Senior 11 iriim has won five
straight gaiiii'S, while Jordan itiver
has not lost, a game in the Senior A
league in Victoria. Besides liiii'ihe
island team has been strengthened
by the addition of Red Mackenzie who
Is one ui tiie i),.st running guards in
the province. Arnold Henderson, former Varsity star, plays center, and
Is supported In the forward line by
Art Boyd and (lord Wllloughby. The
Varsity team has been trailing hard
or tho Kelowna trip next week-end,
so they are at the top of their form
and should be able to trim even the
strong Jordan River team Snturtlay
night.
The girls Senior A exhibition match
had not been definitely decided at
the time of writing, However, the
girls can be depended upon to turn
out a good game any time. The girls'
team is now tied with the Canucks
for the first place In the league, and
those who are Interested In the girls'
honp squad are awaiting the playoff
wilh  Interest.
Finally, just tn make the visitors
al home and round off the evening
nicely, the orchestra will take the
(lour anil provide some snappy Jazz
for Hie ti-smt 1 alavi.-ulc shuffle. The
visitors uill be allowed lo cllllu as
always, and It Is supposed that Ihe
usual ivaieti'ihle si.ig line will lake
Up luili the lliior. It w ill lie the last
lla.alxeihall liaiice of iln- season, su
let's llll v i. ii  big crowd.
WOMEN'S GRASS HOCKEY
All ari Ml ics have been renewed
and more cniiqueiilH are being sought

muiiou t victory nn February filli. A

drawn  up:

Tennis Club Starting
Activities Once More
Meet with Washington to be Staged
The tennis season Is here. If you
don't think so go over to the courts
and watch the boys wielding racquets
in the brilliant sunshine. Varsity's
activities in the tennis world this
spring will be bigger and better than
over.
University of Washington will play
here on May 14, when a team will
be chosen to represent the Blue and
(lold against, the pick of tho Huskies.
The Tennis Club has already laid
eluboruto plans for what promises to
ho ono of tho feature Intercollegiate
events of tho year.
A week later Varsity will send a
team to Seattle to compete against
thu same squad.
Varsity has ono of the strongest
teams In tho history of tho college
available this year. In the meet with
the Prairie Universities last fall B.C.
captured every event but the ladles'
doubles. Tho chief reason for Varsity's win was the high calibre of play
shown by Gordon Shields.
Shields has been prominent in tennis circles in the coast for the last
three years. He was ranked third In
the B. O. rating of the past year.
Paired with Seed he won the Varsity
doubles title and with Jeanne Carlaw
captured the mixed doubles. "Cokie"
played consistent tennis throughout
the past summer, especially when he
took Howard Langlle, Pacific Coast
Junior champion to five sets and had
the match within one point in the
third. Last fall he put the climax to
a successful season by trimming J.A.
MacGill, first ranking player of the
province In straight sets 8—8, 6—2.
Among the high class talent available besides this ranking star are Ian
Stevenson, Hugh Grant, Wallle Mayers and Harry Seed.
Ian Stevenson was seml-flnallst
against Shields In the tournament and
although he suffered defeat gave a
clever exhibition of the net game.
Ian has a lot of possibilities as a
net star.
Grant and Mayers, the two West-
minsterltes are the only team who
gave Shields and Seed a real battle
In their march for the doubles title.
Among the women Varsity could
hardly wish for a better display of
high lights in the tennis world. Marjorie Leemlng, Canadian singles
champion for the last two years, Is
with us again. Her sister Hope gave
a masterly display at Edmonton
when she defeated the best of the
Prairie cities. Experts claim Hope
holds the possibilities of another
Canadian title in the Leemlng family.
Donalda Strauss, Jeanne Carlaw
and Marjorie Grelg are three player:)
who can be relied upon to give a good
account of themsolvos against any
team. All three figured prominently In the tournament. Marjorie
Grelg came Into the limelight with u
leap when she beat Hope Leemlng in
the finals for the ladles' singles.
Washington will have to step Its
best when it meets B. (', on May 7
and   11.
Interesting Details of
Women Track Stars
Turnouts so far have been decidedly small. The class athletics representatives have been wondering if
the student body is aware of ihe practices which are being held. However,
on Tuesday, Arts '2D held a practice.
Torehic Bailey was very good In the
220-yards and did four feet three
inches In high jump nnd fifteen feet
in the broad Jump. Gerry Whittaker
easily cleared the bar at four feet
lour inches in (he high Jump. Both
she and Torchlo showed up well In
l!.e hurdles. Marge Latining was a second only to Torchle in the 2-'n yards
and put up a creditable showing in
the hurdles. Arts '30 girls, nil hough
no large turnout has yet been lulu,
show great promise. Thelma Million
of bask"!ball fame, has a very good
chance ol rupturing the honors In
the sprints and Jumps, She is also
a very good hurdler. She and Torchh
Bailey will vie with one another In
the basketball throw. Jean Petrle,
of grass inn l(i■> lame. Is making a
very rend -.bowing in the sprint.',. Bed
McLeod, I'eggy Stewart and Muriel
ll;r\l> are also standing high In Ihesi-
events. Tin- outstanding athlete In
\rls '-'s, Is I (oris Woods. She lias a
wonderful record behind her and
shows promise of even a greater one
one this year. Iter gri nlcd efforts are
direct'd towards Ihe ilfowing of the
liii'-kel ball, Ihe 'piiois and the hiiid
les. Arts '27 are devoting themselves
to the development oi a winning relay.
The members lor the relays have
as yet had no practice. Arts '27, Arts
'20 and Arts '30 are entering strong
teams as each are well supplied with
s prl titers,

Sportorial
es*eeS***e.m§*% • *.t*\e* ansanaaisa
Varsity enters the third round of
tho Mainland Cup draw Saturday at
Con Jones Park, when they face the
strong St. Paul's team In what promises to be a battle royal for the fans.
The squad has been improving rapidly since the first of the year.
Mel Qaudin, the crack Inside right,
will be well worth going to see alone,
since he is tho class of inside right
who can fight his way through and
If he gets near the goal he scores
every time. He is fast and lithe and
learned his football on the second
team. If Baker makes the openings
and pusses to him he will perform
tlio hut trtck,
Guy Waddington is at outside left
and tho addition of the former Victoria boy will certainly strengthen
tho team considerably. If these three
forwards play as well us thoy can,
und the defence holds, Varaity should
win, There will be a large crowd ot
Vancouver fans on hand; for Varsity
and St. Pauls, along with North Vancouver Ex. High, are tho most popular teams In the city. Fifty Varsity
fans shouting together would greatly
improve Varsity's chances. The soccer team, a major team, has never
had fifty supporters at any game this
year. It is an opportunity for the
freshmen to break a bad record.
The cross .country run held on Wednesday was one of the finest events
yet placod on the Varsity track programme. It brought out many men
who, although of mediocre calibre at
the present, show lots of promise.
Great credit Is due Carl Barton for
the manner in which he organized
and managed the event. The time
was very fast considering the heavy
course and the many obstacles. Frank
Elliott wants to know why bulls are
bo ferocious. He says that he never
did anything to raise their ire.
Howard Lang, the giant Frosh
weight man, a discus specialist, seems
destined to put Varsity on the map
in the Intercollegiates this year if
he continues to Improve as rapidly as
ho has during the past few weeks.
New to the discus throw, Lang has
been tutored by Granger for the past
few weeks nnd the fiery haired one
prophesied that he would toss the
platter 125-30 feet this year. Monday
he flipped tho disc 112 und did so
with only one turn and very little
elevation. The present Varsity mark
Is 109 feet. The Titian haired track
professor seems to have prophesied
rightly.   Keep at it Lung.
Mary Carter, the tall sophomore
blonde who had hurdle aspirations at
the first of the year, seems to have
fulfilled her fondest hopes. She
quickly grasped ihe fundamentals and
now Granger has her spotted to take
tho interclass 70 low hurdles. She Is
fast developing speod and style. She
will also be out to better her record
of 4 feet 3 inches in the high jump.
She will have lots of competition
from Torchy Bailey, the basketball
star, who is reputed to have done five
luces better and Gerry Whittaker,
who is Jumping well above the four
mark.
