 Issued Twice Weekly by the Students' Publications Board of The University of British Columbia
W"™"&r  /£/
No. 8
Almost 200 Books are
Valued  At  $6,000;
1,800 Reproductions
President Klinck, of the University
of British Columbia, announced Monday that the institution has recently
received, as a further gift from the
Carnegie Corporation of New York,
a libravy of almost 200 volumes specially selected to cover the fields of
Painting, Architecture, and Statuary.
In addition, the gift includes 1,800 reproductions in these fields of art. A
considerable moportion of the paintings reproduced is in natural colors,
.and executed with such fidelity as
almost to be replicas of the original
masterpieces. Many of these illustrations have been specially reproduced for inclusion in the collection,
Dr. Klinck said.
The collection is known as "The
Art Teaching Set for Colleges". It
represents the work of a Committee
ot more than twenty professors in
art schools throughout America. These
were requested by the Corporation to
serve as a Committee of Selection,
the purpose of which was to choose
material that would illustrate the
growth of art from primitive to modern times, and would include reproductions of important paintings,
buildings, and statues in ancient and
modern civilizations.
The Art Teaching Set embodies the
final findings of this expert Committee, and is the most complete and
representative collection yet compiled
■cpveifta«^!^lftWK of ast with which
It deals.
As soon as the Committee had completed itd labois the Corporation proceeded tc place orders with the publishers of the books included in the
library, and with the firms in America, Britain, Germany, Austria,
France, Greece, and Italy that issued
colored or photographic reproductions
bf paintings, buildings, or statuary.
Special cases ,'.nd portfolios were designed to accommodate the illustrations, many ut which are three feet
in size. A proportion of the pictures
are taped at Ihe edges for wall exhibition, while others are designed to
be permanently framed.
A large number of these Sets were
accumulated, end it was announced
that the Corporation would consider
applications from interested institutions for their possession. Each applicant was to make a payment of $2,000
—a sum which represented less than
one-quarter of the cost of the collection, with its specially designed
cabinet. Within a few months several scores of the Set had been distributed to American colleges and art
schools, the demand being much
greater than the supply. The Corporation's offer was then withdrawn.
For the past three or four years
the Corporation has entertained a
few applications from universities,
and in a few cases has made up Sets
as a gift. Some of the prints are no
longer procurable, but these omissions have been more than compensated by portfolios and reproductions
of significant ultra-modern works of
several nations.
These more recent gifts of the Corporation do not include the specially
designed  cabinet accommodating the

Wesbrook Ceremony
Planned For Wed.
The Wesbrook Ceremony this year
will be held at the Wesbrook Memorial  an the Campus.    Although the
Senior classes have been the only
ones ;o far allowed to attend the service. Council has decided to have all
classes attending this year.
The ceremony will be conducted by
the Senior Clas.s on Wednesday at
noon and the service will be held as
usual ui front of the Library. The
floral t'ibute. commemorating the anniversary of Dr. Wesbrook".-; death on
Oct. 18, 1924. is on view in the Library.
Due to the 'engtlvoninrf of the noon
hour period, all lectures and laboratories will bo cancelled from 12:00
o'clock on Wednesday, Oct. 23, instead of from 2:00 o'clock a.s announced prcvously.—L. S. KLINCK,
Miss A. B. Jamieson
Co-eds will receive preference at
this week's Wednesday Vocational
talk, when Miss Annie B. Jamieson
will address students. Last year several ' complain's were received that
the Vocational talks seemed to be
almost exclusively for men, and since
the criticism was a reasonable one it
has been remedied this year.
Miss Jamieson comes from a pioneer family in the province of ManU
toba. After grndauting from the University in that province she came to
British Columbia and began her
teaching career at King Edward High
She taught at King Edward High
for twenty years, and during fifteen
years of that time sTie was vice-principal of the school. She was also
second president of the University
Women's Club, and has been on the
Board of the Vancouver Library
since 1915.
She has been elected to the Senate
of the University of B.C. more than
half-a-dozen times, and in 1929 was
elected to the Vancouver School
Board, a position which she has held
ever since.
She is a past chairman of the School
Board, and her latest honor was her
appointment by Senate to the Board
of Governors at the University.
There is hardly a more public-spirited individual in the entire city. Miss
Jameson has been knd enough to offer to speak to the undergraduates,
men as well •*; women, and her subject will be "Vocations in General
and  School  Teaching  in  Particular."
Socialism,  Monetary  Reform,
Reformed Capitalism Are
Slated By Prof.
"Mr. Aberhart says his plan is scientific but I do not know what scientific means in his connection," stated
Professor An?us as he opened the
1935-36 series of Vancouver Institute
lectures in the auditorium on Saturday night with an address on "The
Search For Plenty."
The Aberhart plan is impossible for
three leasons. First If a grant of
consumer's credit is to increase buying power, it cannot be repaid at any
point in the series of transactions
from buyer to manufacturer. This
leads to uncontrolled Inflation.
Secondly, if it is repaid, it is at
best a method of taxing the rich for
tho benefit of the poor. Both classes
are paid dividends with their own
money. Finally to put his scheme in
operation, Aberhart must raise wages,
lower prices and levy $120,000,000 a
year, all out of "exorbitant price
spreads" which in all probability do
not amount to a fraction of the "levy"
Aberhart announces that he has
worked out the principals of his
scheme but the details will be left
to the experts. In principal It is possible to bridge the Atlantic the difficulties arise when the details of building the bridge must be attended to.
"Social credit and its allied plans
are the most numerous of all monetary theories. Most of these are ridiculous but it is almost impossible
tj combat them" said Professor Angus. "The theory banks create credit
is a dangerous half-truth on which
they are all based. Though banks do
issue credit it is controlled by the
financial resources of the bank."
The speaker contended that capitalism worked satisfactorily as a means
of distributing income until people
began to consider it unjust.
Socalism is theoretically a perfect
plan. The difficulties arise when it
has to be decided what products to
produce, what proportions each person should have and what services
should take precedence over the others.
Socialism would concentrate all economic discontent on one spot and
the government would ocupy that
spot. This would lead to an almost
impossible situation.

Many Clubs on the campus are
feeling a great deal happier, and almost ill are satisfied with the budget
passed by Council on Friday last. According to Clarence Idyll, financial
king, dubs have been granted full
budgets almost wtihout exception.
However, the lew clubs which have
obviously budgeted in excess of their
needs have been cut.
A few clubs have been granted
higher allowances, and one new club,
the boxing club, has received a grant.
The Outdoor Club is undertaking
more developments, among which is
the building of a new cabin on Grouse
Mountain. Also, they report a large
Increase in membership. For these
reasons, they applied for a larger
grant, and were allowed an increase.
Council feels that, since this is a
coastal college, rowing should be fostered, and havs increased their grant.
"We hope to make rowing a major
sport eventually," said Idyll yesterday.
"The boxing club is receiving excellent coaching, and has enough
members to warrant giving them a
Men's Grass Hockey has been given
an extra amount for this year also.
Bern Erynelson, when interviewed,
said: "Council feels that the clubs on
the campus will function more successfully if we give them their budgets. This is more or less of an experimental year, and we are trying
io help the clubs as much as possible.
Since tho hour anci a half noon hour
has come into effect we feel that the
various clubs will be more active,
and so we wish to encourage them as
much as possible."
"So far we have economized and
made money on the functions which
council actually finances, such affairs
as the Frosh Smoker and the Frosh
Reception. A sufficient surplus has
been put aside to take core of any
unexpected expenditures and bad
debts, but because we have given the
clubs enough money for the year,
there will be no supplementary budgets except under very extraordinary
circumstances," stated Clarence Idyll
when he announced the budgets.
"We hope," he said, "that all class
parties will be successes this year instead of falling financially. Revenue
has increa'.d this year by about $600
and the budgets granted have been
correspondingly increased. The debt
on the gymnasium will be retired this
year, and a small surplus put towards

Patton Pleases At
Friday Pep Meet
Stan Patton's dedication of "Double
Trouble" to the Ellensburg team
was greeted with rousing cheers at
the pep meeting Friday noon.
To this meeting the students turned
out "en masse" and heartily participated in the yells for their American
football team. According to the plans
of the cheer leaders, a variety of both
old and new yells was practiced.
The attractive Sherry Sisters, singing "I'm in the Mood for Love," were
welcomed by an enthusiastic and
hopeful male audience. This trio was
one of the highlights of the entertainment.
The next attraction was Cisco Bcr-
rctoni's accordion solo, which proved
equally popular, and for which ho
was stoimcd with requests for an
The feature attraction of the show
was the introduction of the university's American footbal team by
coach Ivor Mow. "I'm proud of thc
boys and I si ill have confidence in
them," he stated.

Especially popular was the playing of
our U.B.C. songs at the end of the

Wheat-growing may soon become
one of the most profitable items of
farming in certain British Columbia
districts, when experimental data and
improvements on various types of
wheat become available to agriculturists. This information was given by
Dr. G. C Moe, professor and head of
the Department of Agronomy at the
For the last twenty years the University, Dominion farms, private in-
tererts and both provincial and federal governments have been conducting
experiments tn determine the most
successful types of milling grains for
growth under soil and weather conditions in this province.
Dr. Moe explains that, in the past,
wheat production in B. C. has been
far from systematic. There is a lack
of uniformity which made it impossible for the millers to be assured of
large orders,  uniform in quality.
Fifteen years ago, the University of
British Columbia commenced experiments in order to discover the influences which were retarding wheat
production in the province. The cutting of university grants several years
ago temporarily stopped the work, but
the federal government, through the
Dominion department of agriculture,
has continued investigations.
In all the major districts of the province test plots have been set aside
and samples have been grown. This
has provided the authorities with a
representative cross-section of British
Columbia's wheat-producing area.
The protein content of what grown
in any area is determined, according
to Dr. Moe, by the soil and climate in
that area. For certain varieties, most
notably the hard red spring and the
hard red winter types, B.C. soil and
weather produce grain of exceptionally high protein content,
Wheat production may transform
many sections of the province into
really good farming areas, Dr. Moe
says. This may be seen best in certain borderline sections where the
land needs irrigation, although the
soil doos not yield exceedingly profitable returns from expensive irrigation projects.
Supervision of the tests, which arc
nearing completion, has been in the
hands of the wheat committee of B.C.
of which Dr. Moe is chairman and
W. H. Hicks and Field Crop Commissioner Cecil Tiee are members.
Definite assurance that the Gymnasium Bond Issue would be retired
this year was given last night by
Students' Council at its regular weekly meeting.
A final check of funds available
showed that sufficent moneys were
ready, and the indebtedness could be
retired this season without difficulty.
The debts were incured when the
student body was forced to build its
own gymnasium, since the provincial
government and the University authorities found it impossible to finance thc structure.
Instructions will be given immediately to Toronto General Trust Company to buy whatever bonds are for
sale in the open market. The remain-
ler will be retired by April 1, 1936, It
was announced.
In addition, a surplus remains in
the fund of between $800 and $900,
which will be applied to the debt

The editors of the Ubyssey are planning a
special grad. issue to be published a week
from today. It is to appear in anticipation of
Alumni Day, which, despite cancellation last
week, is to be held Thanksgiving week-end
after all. The issue will contain features written
by graduates, news of grad. activities, and will
run to six pages.
The contributions by the grad. journalists,
however, will be largely "feature type"—that
is, without immediate interest, periodical literature. What the Ubyssey wants is news. Only
as a newspaper—we are proud to believe—do
we justify ourselves. So if any of our readers
have any real, up-to-the-minute news that
would conceivably interst Alumni readers,
please drop into the Pub. office and let us
The recently instituted programme of adult
education under the University of British Columbia has finally commenced, financed by
funds supplied by the Carnegie Foundation in
New York.
That the program will prove of inestimable
value to those persons who are unable to attend
regular classes at the college is not to be doubted for an instant. The lectures will undoubtedly
enlarge the scope of British Columbia's educational facilities.
But unfortunately we have heard numerous
complaints from students who declare that they
see no justification for sending the best professors away from the University for two weeks
in each term.
What the ultimate result of this wholesale
removal of teachers will be we have not yet
any means to determine. No definite answer
to the problem will be available until the first
Temporarily at least, the Ubyssey is not in
a position to take any definite stand on the
matter, for lack of information makes it impossible to reach any sure conclusion as to the
merits or demerits of the programme.
But certainly if the scheme does affect the
scholastic standing of the average student at
the college, immediate action will have to be
taken before another year has rolled around.
There came out of the last war a body of
writing deeply concerned with the effect of
the conflict upon the minds of sensitive men.
As the writers were themselves the first to
recognize, there is possibly an artistic incompleteness to be found in the motivation. However, an attempt to force further significance
on this question is, for the student of English,
pointless.   It involves too much.
The stories of these men came directly out
of their own feeling and must be read as such.
For example, "The Three Soldiers" of John
Dos Passos can make you feel futility of a
terrible extent. The last sentence in the book
is a complete and final expression of the senseless and utterly useless quality that makes modern war. That Dos Passos wrote with any conscious ethical consideration I do not believe.
But when it became evident that a stupid
people had not the power to turn knowledge
into wisdom, that fools still spoke of their god
and of their accomplishments in terms of armaments, then some writers tried, almost frantically, deliberately to make people feel the
absolute idiocy of war:—as when Hemingway
writes of the physical murder, and Ezra Pound,
even yet bitter over the meaningless war-death
of the sculptor Gaudier-Brzeska, makes evident the diplomatic game and the munitions
Such men have been driven to pacifist
writing solely because of their feeling, and
it is incredible that these efforts are regarded
as "evil" propaganda by some people who cannot believe and who refuse to see that they are
themselves the dirty product'of a foully intentional control of the mass-influences: newspapers, newsreels, radio, etc.
The literary historian of say 3000 A.D. in
essaying about "the decline of western civilization" (Gregory, remember thy swashing
blow) will probably say of our our age ... a
dead people, unable to feel their own literature ....
"Fine talk," said the brat-learning-to-be-an-
officer, "but wait till war is declared; then we'll
make you go." And you should have seen his
empty little pig's eyes, you should have seen.
We take this opportunity of reminding the
Seniors that tomorrow at noon the annual Wesbrook Ceremony, honoring the memory of the
first President, will be observed, and that it is
the tradition of the whole graduating class to
attend the graveside ceremony.
Dr. Wesbrook left an indelible impression
in the minds and lives of those who worked under him, and a great legacy to the University.
He worked tirelessly towards his ideals, endowing with dignity our institution, and establishing it as a vital force in the intellectual life
of the province. May his memory always remain fresh in the life of the University.

EUROPA by Robert Briffault.—Mr. Briffault,
about three years ago, wrote a book called
Breakdown which was full of a very fake
brand of communism. The total lack of enthusiasm for this book among the New Masses
has evidently sent its author in search of a
new following. In Europa Briffault has joined
the volume cult (see also Thomas Wolfe) and
produced an immense picture involving the
whole range of European society during the
twenty-five years preceding the Great War.
The sort of stuff that historians and economists
will just love, but not honestly enough put together to interest the literary man. So as not
to hinder the sale of the book, Mr. Briffault
has turned the general vileness of the upper
pre-war social strata into interesting reading
material. Europa will probably be bought in
large numbers.

PABLO DE SEGOVIA, by F. de Quevedo-
Villegas. A picaresque novel translated from
the Spanish of about 1626. A ribald and careless vagabond with a high sense of humour tells
of his adventures without shame, and more,
without boasting. The story of a rogue who
never deviates into respectability and who lives
his low life to the full. This book will put all
but squeamish souls into roars of ecstatic
laughter because of its belly-humour of incident and expression.
If you worry about such things, the book
somehow lies between the satiric manner of
Voltaire's Candide and the glorious vulgarity
of Rabelais.

TD my extreme gratification, this
column, as columns go, is proving
to be a great success! Since it's inception a few short weeks ago, I have
received more 1han my share of complaints from professors, students, and
even outsiders. And that, Dear Reader, is in my opinion the only measure
of satisfaction that any columnist can
get from his thoughtful efforts.
Latest-but-not-least of these complaints are the letters that the Editor
and I have received from disgruntled
freshmen who feel that my comments
on their upbringing were altogether
uncalled for, and untrue.
However, their worries affect me
not at all, and in this column I am
going to enlarge upon my previous
remarks — this time making them
broad enough to include the entire
student body at the University.
It has come to my attention since
Tuesday last that it is impossible for
students to have the usa of our newly-purchased Public Address System
for peo meetings, because the "powers that be" pre afraid some stray
apple cere will lodge firmly and disastrously ln the intricate mechanism
of the microphone.
And although Freshmen — possibly
the same worthies I mentioned in my
last column in my reference to misbehaviour at <he frosh smoker—take
part in the now-taken-for-granted
display of Ill-breeding which features
all pep meetings and gatherings in
the auditorium, I have also seen sophomores, juniors—yes, and ewn seniors—throwing old lunch papers, apple cores, and banana skins onto the
No further comment is necessary,
so if my mall-box is filled with complaints by tomorrow morning I shall
be more than gratified.
For at least I shall be able to take
credit for waking you students up!
OCCASIONALLY the student body
gets something It wants from
University authorities. Senate's final
ratification of the noon recess increase planned by Students' Council
on the authority of its electorate last
year, proved that the students have
no moagre strength—when they are
Unfortunately there are far too
many factions at work on the campus
for our own good. Only once in a
while do we really un'.'j in any
worthwhile cause — and then it is
usually too iate to make much of
an impression.
The Alma Mater Meeting slightly
over a week ago nearly spoiled all
student chances of getting the noon-
hour increase passed by faculty committee and Senate. From very good
authority I have learned that the
matter of the dissension shpwn at the
meeting came in for considerable discussion before the scheme was finally
As it happens, the scheme was ratified, and came into effect yesterday,
Oct. 21. Immeasurable benefits will
doubtless accrue.
But the selfishness of a few individuals always has spoiled, and I suppose always will spoil, the unanimous
appearance of great majorities interested in the success of any progressive move.
We students, as the "intellectual
and privileged section" of present day
society, should demonstrate in all our
actions that we realize "unity is
strength." We ihould forget petty
differences of opinion, look past our
own personal grievances, and set an
example   of   organization   and   amity
for the rest of the community.

It is desirable that all athletes
should understand the requirements
in the matter of amateur registration
cards. At thc recent meeting of the
B. C. Branch of the A.A.U. of C, it
was decided as follows:
All athletes of eighteen years of
age or ever playing in open competition in sports composing the Union
and those under eighteen who are
playing in senior teams in the same
sports are required to hold cards: Ice
Hockey demands that all their juniors also have their cards. So far as
we are concerned at Varsity, this includes Track and Field; Basketball,
Senior and Intermediate; Skiing; Ice
Hockey. The swimmers have their
own registrations as yet. Oarsmen
really should register with the Union
but this has not been insisted upon
in B.C.: I do not know why.
All those who participate only in
intra-mural games, and in open competition in su-;h sports as do not belong the Union, like Football, Tennis
and Badminton, are not required to
hold cards.
Application forms are available from
Mr. Horn in the Students' Council
Office. Cards now to be issued will
date from November 1, 1S35, to October 31, 1936.
it is quite another thing for those
trained men to find positions that
need them.
The question: "What shall the new
graduates do?" has been put time and
time again; and it remains largely
unanswered. Perhaps the most hopeful answer of all was that offered by
Sir E. W. Beatty, chancellor of McGill University when he addressed
the gradauting class of that college
last spring.
"I say that all the troubles of the
world which you inherit could have
been avoided had we thought less of
wealth and more of human happiness," he explained. "This is not a
hopeless world. You, yet, can show
that education has not failed."
More than likely Dr. H. T. J. Coleman will say much the same thin^
tomorrow afternoon. If he fails to
say it, he will in my opinion have
bungled at least partially in his appointed task.
For "the pursuit of happiness"
seems to be the most promising :1

More than eighty members and
graduates of the Players Club gathered at the home of Miss Alice Morrow last Friday evening on the occasion of the annual reception.
The affair, the most exclusive' social event of the univereity year, was
the formal introduction of new members into the activities of the club.
Many of the new members have received parts In the forthcoming

Disconcerting things are happening
every moment in the Magic Hall of

(the publication offices of the University of British Columbia).
Yet somehow or the other, the insidious arrival of the Student, official
organ of the Student League of Canada, quite upset the unscholastic pub.
First we must quote an unmeant
stab of humour: "We differ from the
usual lun of student journalistic efforts in several respects. In the first
place we are not published for the
purpose of making money . . . nor do
we appear in order to pander to our
intellectual vanity . . ,"
At any rate The Ubyssey can claim
a most unusual niche in the gallery
of unusual student publications. In
the first place we are not published
for the purpose of making money;
instead we spend it for a rather flabbergasted student council.

The Student is a brave publication.
It faces unflinchingly, some of the
most perplexing of student problems.
The editorial teams with protest

with indignation at the much debated Section 99 which disenfranchises
many out-of-town students.

Did I have the fun on Friday night though. In case you
don't know that was the night of the Players' Club formal. I
drew the grandest looking man, he reminded me of Frederic
March only he was blond.
I think I made a hit with him, anyway he is taking me to
the Arts ball. I must admit though that ANNE MALONEY deserves as much creditor this as I do. You see I hadn't a thing to
wear and hardly any money.Anywayl went down there to see if
she could do anything for me and as usual she didn't disappoint
me. The sales girl showed me all sorts of the cunningest dinner
dresses which cost practically nothing and looked like a million
dollars.   All the dinner dresses are New York models.
I finally chose one in black crepe with a fish net top. It
had tight sleeves with wide armholes and the only trimming
besides the fish net was a big sparkling clip at the neck. It was
awfully simple but somehow gave me the feeling of being terribly smart.
I don't see how ANNE MALONEY always manages to get
the smartest clothes in town. I bet the other stores would give
anything to have her secret.
*   *   * .*,•..,-
I had to buy some new shoes for the formal so of course I
went down to see what RAE'S CLEVER SHOES had to offer.
They had every kind of evening shoe it is possible to imagine.
Some of those new heeless ones in silver kid and brocade are
the smartest things. I finally bought a black and silver sandal,
the straps were all silver and the shoe itself black satin. The toe
was black and you'd be surprised if you could see how much
smaller this one feature makes your foot. Also it doesn't show if
people tread on your toes. They will look nice with practically
everything and Just suited my new dress perfectly.
Before we went to the Players' formal my escort took me
to the BLUE GOOSE for dinner. There was a whole party of
us there and did we have fun. It was really the best part of the
evening. By the time dinner was finished I felt like I'd known
my blind date for years and years. The BLUE GOOSE always
has that congenial atmosphere. I think I'd rather go there than
almost anywhere else in town. Of course the swell dinner they
serve has something to do with that.

I overslept after the formal and it wasn't till about three
o'clock that I remembered that my sister's birthday was on Sunday. I hated buying birthday presents till I discovered MRS.
PATTON'S LINGERIE SHOP, now it is no trouble at all. I just
rushed right down to South Granville and in practically nc
time at all had picked out the dinkiest pair of white satin panties. Sis will be just crazy about them. That is if she ever gets
them. I feel awfully tempted to keep them myself and give her
something ordinary like a box of face powder. Maybe I'll be
able to get myself a pair anyway though, as MRS. PATTON'S
prices are awfully reasonable.
"I was asked," said Councillor Jay
Gould, when a Ubyssey reporter encountered him while doing a bit of
sleuthing in an effort to find out
something about the approaching
Arts-Aggie Ball, "if I knew hot stuff
if I saw it. When it was explained
that the temperature related to entertainment values, what else could
I do but admit that I did?"
As a result, Councillor Gould found
himself appointed a member of the
Entertainment Committee responsible
for the floor show of the Arts-Aggie
Ball, he admits. The others are Evelyn Hebb, a prominent Co-ed who is
rumored to have an eye for a snappy
four-a-day act equal to that of Maestro Jay himself, and President Morley
of the Artsmen, who regards this department as one of the most important connected with the Ball.
"I have my eye on the snappiest
pair  of  pins,  for  tap,  ballroom,   or
adagio hoofing, at present located on
the Lower Mainland," Jay continued.
Easy on the Eye
"We are out to secure them without
"In addition, I understand that
while this third of the Committee is
on that trail, the other two-thirds are
scouring the vaudeville circuit houses
for items easy on the eye and sooting to the senses."
"Far though it be from me to advertise to my own sacrifices in the
interest of tha public weal, it is my
duty, as far a3 the other members of
the Committee are concerned, to
draw your attention to the immense
labor and wit-abnegation required
by these researches, and suggest that
adequate recognition be given them
in your publication."
It appears from the Maestro's account that at least four acts will be
staged during the Ball; and if possible
they will consist of a pair of dancers
("of a smoothness unapproachable",
he remarked), a singer (torchy), one
comic interlude ("oh, my!" he
breathed, "excrutiatingly funny!"),
and one of snappy instrumental music.

Four Major Sport Losses On Saturday
Rough Rugby Battle
Won By All-Blacks 6-5
Pearson, Robertson and Normington Are
The referee was missing on
parently running by the grace
and the All-Blacks should have
won 6-5.
Varsity could not click. Individu-*
ally they suffered from stage-fright,
collectively from some sort of senile
decay. They were wide open when
their opponents wanted to go through,
they were a stone-wall when their
Own men tried to get ahead.
The referee let the All-Blacks and
the game get out of hand, and then
started   banishing   players   without
rhyme or reason.
In the first half, play was ragged
beyond belief on both sides, but the
Blue and Gold were the more courteous, opening up twice to let their
opponents through, in a most gentlemanly and (eremonious manner.
Full-back Bird, especially, seemed
to be suffering from advanced infantile paralysis, and incapable of booting the ball in any direction but
sideways or backward.
However, he was not very far ahead
of the rest of the team in the minuet.
The three-quartet line practiced
pirouettes and grand-right-and-lefts
with a complete disregard of the necessity of advancing the ball toward
their opponents' goal.
The s<rum succumbed to the popular infection, and could not overcome
the illusion that they were passing
cups and cakes at a tea, instead of in
pursuit of an oblate spheroid of porcine epidermU.
And so it went up to the half,
which came with Varsity down, 6-0,
Not being by any means an expert
devotee of the prize-ring, I shall pass
over the minor points of the battle,
remarking only that one North Vancouver hippopotamus, called, I believe, Norminton, was warned several
times for fighting.
When, finally, he made a pass at
Robson and the diminutive five-
eights returned it, the referee emerged from his trance long enough to
send both of them off the field.
The contrast between the 140 pound
tug-boat and tire 230 pound battleship
moving off the ground together was
an ironical comment, both on the peculiar mentality of the Blacks.
Carey produced the only bright
spot of the day when he sneaked
around a scrum and plunged over the
line WITH the ball.
He converted his own score, making it 6-5.
Shortly after this Pearson was banished for charging a kicker after he
had got rid of the ball. As Pearson
was in the air when the kicker
kicked, it is difficult to imagine any
reason for his banishment.
Pecular at this ruling was the Varsity stalwarts hy this time were at
last pulling together and showed' a
few minutes of good rugby, but the
game finished without further scoring.
I may conclude with two remarks
on a nitre optimistic level.
First, that the All-Blacks at least
knew they had been in a game when
they finished.
Second, that, though the degree of
disorganization in the Thunderbirds
was unusual, its kind was not. Varsity always has to have one bad afternoon before tbey are in fit condition to play through the season in
style. Let us hope that their revival
will be in direct proportion with tlu>
magnitude  of their  downfall.
From thc comments made by the
players after the game, I imagine that
their determination will be sufficient
to produce  this desirable  result.

There will be a rowing practice on

Stanley Park.   All new members out.
Saturday afternoon saw the 1st division juniors go down to defeat at
the hands of the Baders Dutchies.
With the wind in their favor, Baders scored early in the first half and
added a second in the form of a penalty shot just before half-time, ln
the second half, Varsity failed to take-
advantage of the wind and let Baders
through for two more goals.
In spite of heavier and more experienced odds the Varsity men
played a good game.
Bad luck seems to have hit the
Track Club this year. The High
Schools-Varsity Meet has also been
postponed. The original date scheduled for this event was Wednesday,
October 23,., but this also is the date
for the Fall Congregation, necessitating a postponement of the meet.
This will mean an extra heavy schedule later in the year for the Track
Team, but the extra time will give the
men more tune to practice.
Varsity lost to the cricketers 2-7 on
Saturday in the team's first game of
the season. Bremner and Ames
played good for the students with
Knight and Trompour scoring.
While the persevering ruggers
were fighting for dear old Alma Mater on Saturday a none the less enthusiastic group of men were painfully working away at the rowing
club. With about 50 or 60 turning out
regularly coaches Brand, West and
Brown are lining up a crew for the
meet with St. Georges which will
take place in the near future.
According to Wilson McDuffee the
rowing club will hold a meet in the
spring in which it is hoped there will
be entries from the different faculties as well as the big event, a race
between the Publications md Council. Watch for further announcements.
U.B.C. women's grass hockey team
opened their season with a decisive
4-0 victory over Ex-South Burnaby.
The defeated team fought hard for
most of the game, but their defence
broke down when Ellen Raphael
scored the first goal and they allowed
Joan Wharton to gain three more
points in quick succession. All the
U.B.C. players did well with Bea
Hastings outstanding with her brilliant defense work.

Both the Vacs and the Thunderbirds had an almost entirely new

need of shooting practice for they
peppered the basket all night but
managed to get only a few through
the hemp at the most surprising moments.
The defeat cannot be blamed on
any man for every member of the

maybe because of the nervous prostration under 'vhich they were trying
to play. Though they were running
all over the floot the first half in

The University's Sixty-Minute-Men
— the Canadian Rugby team, went
down to defeat against heavy odds
Saturday when they were beaten 18-
0 by tb-> Cougars.
University had only twelve men on
the field, there being no substitutes
or spares due to the playing of the
Varsity-Ellensburg game on the same
day at almost the same time, and
one or two of the men were playing
their first game with the Canadian
squad. The Cougars had a good team
with any number of men on thc
bench ond when they saw that Varsity had no replacements and that
each man would have to play the
full game they began sending in new
men and changing players constantly
so that the University had to play an
almost completely fresh team throughout the whole game. In spite of all
this the University team held its opponents well until near the end of
the game when it began to weaken
but not until it had got the Cougars
so irritated that they wore penalized
for swearing in some foreign language—and   it  was not Latin.
The team follows: Lowe, Morrow,
Davie, White, Crawley, Burgess.

kins,   Lir.es.-CRAWLEY   	
the  latter squad  was waving  arms
around trying to check him.
Turner, Lucas, and Pringle played
a really do or die game but were
rather wild in attempted shots. Even
the reliable J« Pringle overshot the
white square thrice in his shooting
haste. Frankie Turner was top scorer
amassing eight points as well as scoring the first basket of the season.
Every man on the squad snared
plenty of rebounds and with a little
practice ought to be able to turn
these into valuable points.
V.A.C. too was off in their shooting
but had no trouble locating the basket   when   they   needed   the   points.
They simply coasted to victory.
But it won't be so easy against the
Thunderbirds ijext time. They will
continue drilling every day until they
can outspeed pnd outplay any of the
best teams in town.
In case you want to know, Province
showed championship form in downing the fast breaking Adanacs by a
score of 45-31 in the second game of

The only reason that the Canadian
Rugby play\>rs lost their game on
Saturday was because they DID NOT
what there is ef it i.s good, but twelve
men cannot play a whole series. They
get  tired  and they get hurt.
It is a good league to play in and
a good game to play—so if you are
under 21 and can walk, TURN OUT!
R.C.M.P. Fail
To Get Their Man
Heralded by many as a championship team, Varsity's 2nd division
English Rugby XV amply justified
this forecast on Saturday afternoon
by trouncing the much touted R.C.
M.P. team by *< score of 20-0.
The game was played on Douglas
Park under ideal conditions, and was
featured by a number of spectacular
runs 'jy Bill Watson and Ron Andrews. The first half opened with
both sides playing rather a shaky
brand of rugby and the only score
in this half was an unconverted try
for Varsity scored by Watson. But
in the second half Varsity settled
down to work and scored five more
tries, only ono of which was converted, to pile up seventeen more
points without having their own line
crossed, making the final score 20-0.
In this half Watson scored two more
tries, Andrews scored two tries, and
Leckie-Ewing scored one.
Strengthened by the addition of the
versatile Shirl. Griffin who regularly
plays full-back, the scrum turned in
their best performance of the season,
proving consistently superior to that
of the Mounties.
The following played for Varsity:
Hobson, J. Andrews, Houser, Griffin,
Martin, Colthurst, Leckie-Ewing,
Johnson, Linklater, Smith, Watson, R.
Andrews, Cunningham, Walsh and
The result of the third team's appointment was equally as favorable,
if not, as satisfactory to Varsity for
in an aristocratic manner their opponents the East End Monarchs. choose
to ignore the challenge and failed to
make an appearance.
The committee felt that with the
good material on the campus this
year a very successful girls' track
club could be organized. Those who
are interested please get in touch with
Beth Evans as soon as possible.
Thunderbird Gridmen
Improve But Still Lose
Ellensburg Normal Pass and End Run Their
Way To 49-0 Win
Score: 49-0 for Ellensburg. Margin of victory: perfect interference, good kicking and the ability to take advantage of
the breaks. But that one-sided score doesn't do right by our
boys. Man to man the Thunderbirds matched the Americans
in strength and only lacked finish to be a scoring threat.

Close One
Knox Defeats U;B.C. By Lone
Once aagin youth gave way to experience whan Johnston's Storage
eked out a 1-0 win over Varsity footballers. The winners, considered the
strongest team in the league, were
disappointed in winning by so close
a score over a team boasting six
players in their first year as senlon.
There were flashes of good football-
the Storagemen played a passing
game while the Thunderbirds relief
on their speed in a kick and rush
style of play.
Varsity won the toss and Captain
Wolfe cannily chose to kick with the
wind. During the first half the
youngsters had much the better of
the play but the breaks were against
them and they failed to score. Towards the end of this half the Storagemen turned the tables and passing
quickly down the field made sever.il
rushes at the goal and were rewarded by r. score from Scotty Knox.
The second half brought out beiter
football, and the Thunderbirds, with
their backs to the wall, showed that
they hove what it takes to make a
real soccer teim. As a team togeth >r
only for the second time, they steadied down, cleared the ball from their
own penalty area and several times
came v/ithln an ace of tying the score.
Johnstons also were unlucky to miis
a couple of goals but Greenwood was
on his toes and cleared brilliantly,
The whole team played a hard
steady game. The style of play was
clean (fairly) and unselfish so that
no one player was outstanding. However, it is whispered that the youngsters are learning to play football
and rookies Godard and Sweetmun
are real finds.
The only injury was a bad "shiner"
for Bish Thurber which was serious
enough to keep him home on Saturday night.
The line-up was as follows: Greenwood (goal); Sutherland and Quavle
(full-backs); Sweetnam, Wolfe (cap/t
and Thurber (halves); Irish, Chester,
Ikeda, Sager, Godard, Croll, Jenkins
contests — no lengthy pocessions of
first downs and no appearance of
being hopelessly outclassed. And the
answer k simply this, the Thunderbirds fought every inch of the way.
But Varsity is woefully weak in
some departments. The kicking was
awful—averaging about twenty yards.
Barney Boe is a kicker is a swell
guard. Ditto for Parkinson. A good
forty yard punter could have kept
the score down to half. As bad, if
not worse, was the snapping, It
caused fumble.-., juggling and hurried
kicks galore.
The fust two touchdowns came on
Identical plays—end runs with deluxe interference. This is how the
visitors do it: about four hefties leave
the line and tear around one end
with the ball carrier somewhere behind them. This is generally good
for 30 yards if everything works
right. The end hasn't a chance to
turn them and McHugh was yanked
because he didn't.
As is customary when the visitors
have a lead, a new team was sent in
for Ellensburg. They surprised by
kicking on their first down, caught
Parkinson flat-footed and went on
for a touch with the help of a few
line smashes. That ended the scoring
for the first Quarter.
Ellensburg took to the air after
half time and two long passes were
good to make it 35-0. Barney Boe
gained 15 yards on a faked kick for
the best Blue and Gold gain.
Play was even in the last quarter
until a few minutes before tune when
an Ellensburg end Intercepted a pass
thrown by Paradis and galloped over
for an easy touchdown. Then the
visitors again tried that five man end
run. This time they* reversed it and
it was even more effective. Points
after touch ended the scoring 48-0.
And now :n the way of compll-
mentaries: to the line in general and
especially to Al Young, who brought
down more than his share of teachers;
to Barney Boe and Warnkin who
were in there lor 60 mnutes; to Frank
Hay playing with a sprained ankle;
to 128 lb. Shadow Grey, who can carry the ball with the best of them;
and to the bench warmers, those
guys that sit through a season hopin.s
for a chance.
