Vancouver Institute Saturday evening by Percy Bengough. An author-
atative source of information, he is
vice president of Canada's largest labour organization — the Trades and
Labour Congress.
The present state of affairs is man-
made, according to Mr. Bengough.
The public indifference to actual
plans for curing unemployment must
be changed before any improvement
will be made. The depression is no
longer the cause of unemployment.
It is the result of so many people being without work.
While Mr, Bengough urged several
social and legislative reforms, he said.f
"Do not blame *he government, for
a* long as people are satisfied with
conditions a* they are, there will be
no change." In Vancouver there are
actual caaea of people working twelve
hours a day, seven day* a week. One

Unemployment Insurance has dropped

The limitation of migration Is another stand taken by the Trades and
Labour Congress of Canada. Is it
not selfishness to prevent other artisans from enteiing the country
when there is not enough work for
our own men? In conclusion, Mr.
Bengough made the statement that
the Congress prefers to co-operate
with legal and peaceful methods in
the forwarding of their recommendations.

N.R.A. may not be a success from the
academic point of 'view but from the
workman'3 it is a great improvement
on former systems. This applied to
shorter hours especially.
The machine is a benot'ictcr to the
social system and Mr. Bengough saw
no reason why men should labour if
a machine could do it. The work,
however, should be dealt out in
smaller quantities and higher wages
The conditions of many workmen

Spring Play
Preliminary eliminations for the cast
of thc spring play, "Caesar and Cleopatra," were made by the Players'
Club at try-outs on the auditorium

Literal Truth of Bible
Maintained by Speaker
Eminent names in the fields of science and archaeology flew in Arts
204 Friday noon when Dr. J. T. McCrossan, classics scholar from Seattle
and guest-speaker of the V.C.U., addressed a large audience on "Can
We Believe the Bible?"
Quoting by chapter and verse, Dr.
McCrossan maintained his thesis by
frequent reference to the books of
Genesis, Exodus, Job and Ezekiel.
Later fulfillment of prophecies revealed to Moses was brought forward
as proof of the literal truth of the
Bible, notably the slaying of Sen-
nachorib and his 185,000 soldiers. A
tablet discovered in 1921, stated Dr.
McCrossan, poinls to the truth of this
disputed passage.
To certain other passages he gave
startling interpretations.   Outstanding
among   these  waa  the  prediction  of
automobiles   many   centuries   in   advance of Ford and Chrystar, referred I
to in  the Bible   as   "chariots   with
flaming torches," and, by the speak- j
er's interpretation, signs of the sec-1
ond coming of Christ. (
What might be described as a moderate fundamentalist, Dr. McCrossan
showed a genuine Christian spirit In
his references to the modernist faction in th. church, reproving them
only mildly as intellectual fools.
Outside speakers included Rev. Alex.
Esbr, D.D., who opened the meeting
with prayer.—A.M.

Wednesday in Arts 100 there will be a meeting qf Men's'
Athletics to discuss the petition of the University Soccer Club
to be reinstated as a major sport on the campus. AU Interested
students are urged to attend.
According to a statement made by Max Stewart, President of Men's Athletics, the proposed promotion of soccer may
necessitate the demotion of some other major sport. At the
present time the major sports are: English Rugby, Canadian
Rugby, Track and Basketball. If such a necessity arises, the
question of which sport is to receive a sub-major ranking will
have to be discussed. The supporters of all sports are for this
reason urged to attend.
The points advanced by the soccer club as a basis for
major rating appeared in the last edition of the Ubyssey. For the
edification of those who did not read them they are here brief-
ly summarized:
1. Soccer is one of the most active sports on the campus by reason of two teams competing in leagues and the interclass competitions.
2. Varsity's soccer team last year was in the finals of
the Mainland Cup. The promotion of the sport to major ranking would insure a larger turnout and a better team.^
3. Soccer will at all times have available a high calibre
of players by reason of:
(a) Elementary and high school teams.
(b) Interclass competition.
4. Soccer deserves major sport ranking because of the
fact that former Varsity players are now playing on the leading coast teams.
Lack of cooperation has been lamentably obvious in
regard to the Totem. Graduates are not taking their appointments seriously, and either do not turn up for their appointments at all, at the same time not notifying the Totem editor
of their inability to come at the time indicated, or they notify
the editor when it is too late to substitute another name for the
appointment, thus wasting the time of the photographer, the
engraver, and all concerned.
Surely the annual is one project for which students could
take some trouble. It is hard at the best to get the Totem out
on time,, before the Spring exams, but when the students take
no interest, it is doubly difficult.
"Somewhere before the setting of the moon
I chanced on a night-walking company
Clad aU in tailored weed and two-tone ahoon ....
Cans't tell me, Brother, who these wights may be?"
"Quaffing my beer yest'reen I heard one say
That ere the morrow's morn was weU begun
Full score of merry clerks from West Point Grey
Would sally forth to undertake the Sun."
"Here by this lamp post, Brother, let us stand
Beseeching all our gods with trembling lips
.    That the invasion of the vandal band
Leave not the Sun in permanent ecUpse!"

Who Wrote the Iliad ?
Peter, thwarted in his desire to interview Mayor Taylor
and finding that the police beat is not for him, scampers out a
trifle sulkily to get an advance on spring. While he's away, let
me offer you the first contribution that has come to our bin
this year.
A poem by J. Winifred Alston, on a question that has caused
much scholarly debate:
Authorship of the Iliad and the Odyssey
Ah wretched Homer, how iU-used thou art!
How many learned arrows at thee dart t
For centuries men worshipped at thy shrine
But now, it seems, It was not ever thine.
. The garlands Oreece conceded to thy brow
Thou dids't not earn, our scholars teU us now.
And more .... refuse to grant that thou art 'one!'
By Zeus, they'll have thee female ere they're done!
Alas poor man! thy tales are not thine own
And slaves have robbed a monarch of his throne.

Wilson Macdonald • • Singer of Canada
In the last twenty years or so, Canada has produced many
able versifiers. Well up in the Ust one finds the name of Wilson
Macdonald who, in several slim volumes put out by Ryersons,
has done much for the advance of poetry in this country.
His work is not without flaws; self-consciousness and a
rather irritating arrogance mar a good deal of his longer verse;
but many of his shorter poems are exquisite. The sonnet that
follows will appeal particularly to Coast-dwellers:

Pauline Johnson
She sleeps betwixt the mountains and the sea
In that great Abbey of the setting sun:
A Princess, Poet, Woman, three in one;
And fine in every measure of the three.
And when we needed most her tragic plea
Against ignoble paeans wo had sung
While yet her muse was warm, her lyric young,
She passed to realms oi< purer poesy.
To-night she walks a trail past Lillooet:
Past wood and stream; yea,  past the dawn's white fire.
And now the craft on Shadow River fret
For one small blade that led their mystic choir.
But nevermore will Night's responsive strings
Awaken to the "Song Her Paddle Sings."

Advance On Spring
Amos the butterfly .... one of his tribe rather, for Amos
the first has already made his appearance .... dropped to a
perfect landing today among the wilted last year's cabbages of
an East End garden.
He was clothed tastefully in orange speckled with brown.
Slim-hipped, narrow of waist, chest sprouting a pleasing growth
of fur, his appearance checked almost exactly with that of a
pulp-paper adventurer of Street and Smith. Amos refused to
give the story of his flight to the press, but did release a little
advance information on spring.
Still, while his judgments on such matters are» usually
trustworthy, readers are advised against pawning the winter
overcoat for a while yet!

Of interest to. everyone on the campus should be the
Thursday noon hour recital sponsored by the Musical Society. This is the first program of this nature which has been
given on the campus for some time and enough interest and
appreciation should be evidenced by the student body to make
this a future regular event in campus life.
The comment has been made frequently that not enough
attention is given to artistic and cultural development at the
University. A recital such as this is the best way in which to
foster an appreciation of such things.
It need hardly be said that students should give consideration and courtesy to a program given in part by guest artists;

By Zoe Browne-Clayton
Has your doctor warned you against
heavy eating or over exercising for
fear of high blood pressure? If so do
not pay any attention, for lt is quite
possible that high blood pressure is
not due to over eating but to uncontrolled quantities of ions in the
Measuring Ions
The number of ions in the air varies with the conditions of the atmosphere. Over in the Physics department Tom How,,n last year's honor
graduate in Physics has constructed
an Interesting machine for measuring
the ions in the air. The main part
of the apparatus is a grey affair
which looks like a telescope through
which passes a current of air one
two thousandths million mUliona of
the current that goes into an electric
light bulb. This special tube amplifies the current. All the while the
machine is operating there Is a steady
whirr of a fan nt the end of he tube.
The current of air passing through
the fan and the tube moves a little
needle encased in a box on the desk.
By means of this needle it is possible to calculate the number of ions
in the air. The reason for the needle
moving is completely beyond the
comprehension of your Campus Explorer, who is not a graduate in
Physics and never will be. Enough
that it does move and that she had
it on very good authority that it did
measure the ions of the air.
Attention, McCoy Fans!
These ions are very Important
things to our health. Dr. Desseaur,
a well known European professor,
has cured hign blood pressure by controlling ths Ions of the air.
A professor In the U. S. insists
that rheumatic weather prophets, that
is, men who can correctly foretell the
weather by twinge* in their legs or
shoulders, owe their power to the
electrical condition of the air.
Why Lectures Do Not Stimulate
Modem systems of ventilating take
all the ions from the air and this
may   be  very   oad   for   the   health.
Mountain air contains lots of ions
and is therefore very exhiliarating.
Probably you can all testify that a
room, especially a lecture room which
depends solely on thc ventilating system for Its fresh air, and therefore

Tom How constructed the apparatus

a week and has found no irregularities. The amount varies with the
weather conditions and the air contains from ISO to 1500 ions per cubic
centimeter. This is the first time
that the elecrical condition of the air
has been measured in B. C.

Student Attitudes In
Japan  Discussed
"Student Attitudes in Jain:,' was
the topic discussed by Mist Constance
Chapell at the first S.C.M. meeting
of the term Tuesday.
Japan is a contrast between the
old and the new in every thing. The
medieval customs and kept in dress,
architecture and sports, and to these
are added those imported from the
"The youth of Japan is greatly uls-
turbed by the problems of peace and
war, and economic justice. They are
dominated by three primary considerations — loyalty to the state, the
Ideal of courage and self-control as
portrayed in the soldier and the
thought that modern Japan is beset
by enemies."
"There is utter -bhorence of war in
the minds of the young people," Miss
Chapell added. "They consider it
stupid and fuUle and are a little re-
belious now to the military training
which takes from them two of the
best years of their lives."
The Japanese students have been
forced to consider economic justice
by the serious unemployment problem, and some of the most promising
young men are becoming strongly influenced by communistic thought
from Russia,
"Can these problems be solved by
one nation alor.e. Is it not necessary
for the 'men of good-will' to join to
Ewther? Do not the young idealists
of every nation need to understand
each other?" Miss Chappell asked in
The holiday activities of the S.C.M
included a Chinese dinner and social
evening held the week before term
opened and a fireside with Miss
Chapell held at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Sherwood Lett.

His name is Garnet Gladwin Sedgewick, but he seldom admits it.
Dr. Sedgewick is head of the department of English, an authority on
dramatic irony, modern poetry, comic 'strips in the Vancouver Daily
Province and that modern corrupting influence, the talking picture,
Since Dr. Sedgewick is head of
the department he has many privileges. One of these is to have a female member of his class close the
doors after his usual dramatic entrance. Also he can, and does come
ln the lectures late. At frequent intervals during the lecture Dr. Sedgewick runs his fingers through his leonine mane which can only be compared in quantity to that of Dean
That Dr. Sedgewick was born is
an undisputed fact. According to reliable Information this blessed event
took place in Nova Scotia. How long
ago, or what was the exact name of
•be town, city or village in which he
llrst saw the Ught of day is not known.
The name of the town has several
syllables In it, and ends, it is believed, with—uagua.
Not much of Herr Dokter's early
history is known except that after
amazing the local pedagogues with
his learning he left for Dalhousie, a
University situated somewhere in the
wilds of Nova Scotia. After Dr. Sedgewick had completed the course there,
he heard the caU of the west, in
the person of the town of Nanaimo,
which was caUing for a teacher, He
The doctor spent two years there,
and then not being a soccer enthusiast, he was forced to leave, and
come to Vancouver High School (now
King Edward.) Since he had boarded
at a Greek restaurant in Nanaimo.
Dr. Sedgewick among other subjects
taught Greek. In or around 1910 finding that he had imparted enough information to the students of Vancouver to keep them going for a couple
of years, he left for Harvard. There
he studied dramatic irony and since
that time he has continued to study
it, so that he has > become what is
known as a whizz at the subject.
It is for the purpose of giving lee
tures on this subject, that the Doc
tor is leaving Vancouver to go to
Toronto this spring. It Is undoubtedly
one of the greatest honors that has
ever fallen to the lot of any man,
and more especiaUy to EngUsh professors, to lecture before the intelligen-
sia oi Toronto. Or should one merely say Toronto? (If there is any
doubt on this point one can ask the
people of Toronto.)
After he had completed his course
at Harvard Dr. Sedgewick left for
St. Louis where he lectured at Washington coUege. After a short period
there G. G. grew tired of the "you-
all" and "them-aU" prevalent in the
cloistered shades of that city, so he-
all left for that Boston of the West,
Vancouver. He came to the University
of British Columbia where he took
charge of the English department and
one other man.
He has been lecturing here ever
since, between wanting to play the
part of Hamlet. Dr. Sedgewick's hobby is pulling ears and tweaking noses. At that hobby he has become so
proficient that he is rated as an expert. In one day he tweaked the ears
or pulled the noses of 17 seniors, 21
juniors and 34 sophomores, undoubtedly a new world record.
He resembles Mr. Bennett and the
Prince of Wales ln so far as he is
one of the world'., most eligible bachelors.— D.C.M.

Siamese Consul
Speaks To Club
Visualize a country endowed by a
bounteous Nature with an ideal climate and a fertile soil, a country the
beauty of whose scenery is only surpassed by the puchritude of its womanhood, n country in which the
rich patina of ancient culture is delicately overlaid with the intricate design cf modern civilization. This was
the picture by means of which Captain Armstrong, the Siamese Consul, portrayed thu country he represents before a supper meeting of the
Cosmopolitan Club on Sunday evening.
No Unemployed
In Introduction Capt. Armstrong,
stating that most Canadians have not
an intimate knowledge of the country or its people, gave a brief but
comprehensive geographical description of Siam. Its area, he explained,
is 200.000 square miles (three-fifths
the area of B. C); its population is
12,000,000 but there are no unemployed! It is divided geographically
into three parts; a mountainous northern country, central plains and a
southern region situated on the
Northern Malayan peninsula.
Elephantine Donkey Engines
The chief industry of the northern
cotintiy is lumbering. The extensive
teak forests are logged under strict
government supervision so that a
process of natural reforestation la always in progress. Elephant* make
efficient and economical donkey-
engines. The product of the fertile
central plains, cultivated by a hardy
and frugal peasantry, is rice, much of
which eventuaUy finds its way to
Canada. The south is the site of
many beautiful summer resorts, numerous beaches and golf courses providing an unsurpucwble natural playground. Cooling breezes from the
Gulf of Siam transform what would
ordinarily be a tropical heat into a
temperate climate.
A Progressive State
Although Slam's age makes it an
archeologist's paradise, the country
has kept abreast of modern progress.
Its railway system is one of the most
efficient in the world; an extensive
air-mail and passenger system is
maintained, and a • well-equipped
army, navy and air force is ready
at aU times to prevent foreign aggression.
The population is so cosmopolitan
that Siam has often been termed a
"Little League of Nations." Purebred Siamese .ve rare, Mongolian,
Chinese, Malayan and Portuguese
blood being commonplace. This, however, does not prevent a strong nation il pride although an international
outlook is fostered. Tlie Sianrase are
peace loving and entirely devoted to
their king.
Prohibition is unknown, but sober
habits characterise the people as a
whole. The idea of drinks served in
barbecue fashion appealed to the audience. Wealthy Siamese citizens often
hold parties at their luxurious estates
which may last for three days or
more. Anyone who has ever met the
host is welcome without even the
formality of an invitation.
UnUl recently Siam was one of the
few absolute monarchies still ln existence. Last year a democratic constitution was drawn up and a parliament formed. Although a Siamese aristocracy exists there is no Senate or House of Lords. All classes
are eligible for parliamentary membership. Titles are awarded as a result of achievement in political or
administrative fields.
Education High
Thc level of education in Siam is
high, according to the speaker. There
are numerous public and high schools
not to mention a university at Ban-
kok. Students who show signs of
unusual ability are given every
chance for rapid advancement.
In conclusion Capt. Armstrong mentioned that a trip to Siam is fairly
inexpensive and expressed the hope
that many of his listeners would have
the opportunity to visit the country
he ha. described.
Exchange Views
By Nancy MUes
The Washington DaUy, not alto-
together in approval of the candidates who have reared their lovely
heads for the offices of A.S.U.W.,
have entered their own candidate into the field. A photograph reveals
that their man is of decidedly Simian
cast of countenance, Indeed the original Simian, for he is an ape whose
cognomen is J. Wellington Wimpy.
One of Mr. Wimpy's chief attributes
s his enormous strength which enables him to carry his platform from
meeting to meeting, a decided advantage to his campaign managers,
of whom there are forty-five.
Rare among candidates the world
over, Mr. Wimpy is very succinct before the press. His campaign slogan
you will see above, "A Vote for
Wimpy is a Vote for Wimpy." His
gratitude to his supporters was expressed as follows:
"I want to thank youse guys for
Sneers and Jeers
The Campus Crab Is heartily nip-
ported by tho co-eds. He addre-ses a
short homUy to the Players Club, and
highly applauds the Studenta' Council. The University continues to U-
lustrate the old proverb—FacUlus de-
censls Avernl.
By the Campus Crab
• •   •
Behold! Positive confirmation of
my contention that the' co-eds are
lamentably standardized. It is announced that we have fourteen potential Cleopatras on the campus.
What mass production!
If we have fourteen reproductions
of that gloriously unique quintessence
of womanhood, how many faithful
images of the more common types are
we bound to possess?
The gratitude I feel in finding myself so amply supported by the very
subjects of a former criticism makes
me refrain from using this material, .
so adaptable as a vehicle for further '
kind comments in my usual style.
I will content myself with lyrically
chanting, in chorus with Captain Mc-
Heath, "How happy J could be with
any one, were only the other thirteen fair charmers away!"
• *  *
And now, a few words of warning
to the Players' Club. This ancient
and more or lets honorable agglomeration of Thespians should watch
its step over the Spring Play.
In spite of the reputation achieved
by past triumphs, it seems to have
declined to the common attitude of
campus clubs—that "anything is good
"Anything" is NOT good enough.
The last Spring Play achieved nothing but the destruction of the loyal
following that the club has buUt up
for itself over many years. If they
went on tour this year, many towns
that have always heartily supported
the club would not provide tiie box
office with enough to pay the janitor for sweeping out after them.
The Christmas plays showed some
improvement, but not enough. Except for "The Pie and the Tart" their
finish and timing was terrible. One
even neglected the basic necessity of
clear enunciation to such an extent
that it was almost unintelligible. This
is NOT "good enough."
The Players' Club, whether lt realizes it or not, has an uphiU fight
ahead of it. If (he new director lives
up to her excellent reputation and
the members seriously attempt to improve their standards, it may climb
back to the peaks reached in "Pygmalion" and "Friend Hannah."
If it does not, it will continue down
the chute it started on with "Alibi,"
and   end  as  just  another  group  of
campus stuffed shirts.
Let us all kowtow to the Students'
Council! According to a Ubyssey
headline this omnipotent body has
resolved that basketball MUST become more popular.
But one thing puzzles me. If our
representatives can achieve this most
worthy object, as they appear to believe, why must we cut all our budgets by 20 percent? v
Any organization that can decree
that anything MUST become more
popular and get ttway with it, could
easily earn us enough to increase our
budgets by many hundreds of percent.
Think of what the Conservative
party would pay us to have them
resolve "That Dennett MUST become more popular", or the dividends
that we could draw from Hitler to
have them decide that "Everybody
MUST lbve the Nazis."
Have we had such a gold mine in
our midst for years without discovering it?
• •   .
We beg to announce the prospective ar pearance in our midst of a new
President and Secretary. An Aeronautical Club is to be launched on
the campus.
The rustle you hear is the existing legion of Supreme Potentates
squeezing over to give them room.
As perhaps we have mentioned before, we consider the ranks of these
luminaries a bit crowded.
The objects of the new club are
doubtless very laudable in themselves
but we already have so many activities and organization, on the campus
that the place is as active as a can
full of angleworms—and gets about
as much done.
I would suggest that the Council
refers the application ef the new society back to its sponsors, and then
refers the sponsors to a place of residence even farther than that. A
few of our already existing activities could weU be invited to accompany them.
However, if my suggestion is not
acted on, it wiU be a consolation to
know that the addition of a new
President and Secretary to our extensive Mugs' Gallery will increase
the exclusiveness of the Society of
Undergraduates Who Do NOT Hold
Office .
aU the things you have did for me,"
followed by tears. "When the campaign is over and I have won, I'm
going to invite you all to a big dinner.   Yon bring the ducks." Page Four

Students Fifteen
Held To Scoreless
Tie By Victoria
Varsity Scrum Outplays Victoria; Backfield
Handles Well
Rain, Mud. Wind, and Referee's Whistle
Spoil Game
The McKechnie Cup Varsity English Rugby team came
back from Victoria with a one-point hold on the coveted trophy.
Saturday afternoon playing on a rain drenched field and with
a 30 m.p.h. wind to complicate matters Varsity were held to
a 0-0 score by the championship Victoria Rep. team. ,
The play during the game was fairly^
evenly matched with Varsity if anything having a slight edge. Throughout the whole contest Varsity's scrum
were superior, utilizing their weight
and experience to advantage. The
backfield, despite the handicap of a
muddy rain-soaked baU, handled weU.
Vanity Threatens
Varsity won the toss and elected to
play with the wind. During this half
Varsity pressed repeatedly but the ex-
ceUent clearing kicks of Mclnnes and
Stipe prevented a score. During one
part of this half Pearson, Varsity
scrum man, crossed the line with the
ball only to have it slip from his
Vic. Rogers, former Blue and Oold
player now scrum leader for Victoria,
was forced to leave the game when
he was kicked on the head. Jack
Dunn, fleet wing three-quarter for
Victoria, left the game for a short time
but later returned.
Vanity Scrum Good
During the second half with the
wind behind them Victoria kicked repeatedly. It was only this that prevented a score. Varsity scrum continued to have the advantage of play
while the three-quarters tackled weU.
During this half Strat. Legatt broke
away for a couple of long runs which
had the small crowd to its feet. Victoria came close to scoring in the
last few minutes when Bobby Tye
tried a drop kick which fortunately
was touched down by some of Varsity's players.
Senkler .Morris, Brand Star
Senkler, red-headed scrum man from
Victoria, shone for Varsity, turning in
one of the best games of his career.
Morris and Upward were also good
ln the scrum. In the backfield Tye,
Brand and Legatt shone. Brand, despite the handicap of playing with a
muddy ball, rumbled only once, re-
Uoving the pressure frequently with
long kicks.
MIU Owen, wing three-quarter for
Varsity, broke a bone in his hand.
Addison, fleet-footed Victoria player,
was prevented from doing anything
by the tackUng of Bobby Oaul.
Varsity—Brand, Dalton, A. Mercer,
Legatt, Ken. Mercer, Owen, D. Tye,
Mitchell, Harrison, Pearson, Morris,
Senkler, and Maguire.
Victoria—Mclnnes, Dunn, McDonald,
Turgoose, Addison, B. Tye, Stipe,
Rogers, Engleson, Peard, King, DosweU, Usher, DeBauchuiere and Bobbins.

Senior Soccer'
men Suprised
Senior Soccermen were the perfect
hosts to a band of dauntless Vikings on Saturday: they entertained
them '"at home", they did most of the
playing, and (according to the formula) they lost the decision. The scon
was 2-1.
McDougal Late Again
Varsity started off with only ten
men. McDougal arriving half an hour
late. Vikings went ahead during this
interval through their left-wlngman,
who beat Greenwood in Varsity's goal
with a pretty effort. The students retaliated with several rushes, and Martin and Smith were unfortunate ln
not scoring. Wolfe also met with hard
luck, when his long drive barely
missed the left top corner of the goal
with the custodian out of position.
The CoUeglans' attacks, however,
were not concentrated enough to be
deserving of a counter. Accordingly
it was not until half way through the
second half that Varsity entered the
score column. Costain ,who had moved from fullback to left wing at the
change-over, put across a long centre
which Smith met squarely and crashed into the net. At this stage of the
tussle Varsity was definitely superior
and looked like winners. However, in
spite of several dangerous sallies, the
students could not get the ball past
the Viking custodian, partly because
of stellar work on his part and mostly
because of execrable shoothig.
Greenwood Hadn't' A Chance
At the other end of the field Vikings made good use of their few opportunities and on one of them pushed the sphere past Greenwood, who
had no chance with a hard bouncing
shot. The rest of the encounter saw
Varsity constantly on the attack, but
unable to secure the tieing tally.
KosooUn Good
For Vanity, Kozoolin was outstanding, with Hughie Smith on the right
wing a close second. Thurber and
Sutherland, two new recruits from the
Junior squad, showed up weU. Martin at centre forward seemed to be
completely off his usual game, and
Archie McDougal also had a slump.
The rest of the squad turned in good
games and played sound ball.
Millar McGiU and Dave Todd, who
are both out of the game with injuries, are due to return to the fold next
Saturday and wlU greatly strengthen
the squad for its coming league encounters.

Stars Picked For Victoria
With a stellar aggregation lined up for Varsity's track engagement this Friday, Don McTavish, president of the Track
Club, expects a certain win over the Island City athletes.
Because of the poor condition of the track in this
typical weather, all Varsity's preliminary try-outs have been
cancelled, and the teams have been chosen on the basis of past
performances. Gordon Heron and Don have gone into a huddle
over this matter, and have finally chosen the Blue and Gold
The collegians will provide lots of hurdle events will  be  on  the  Ust,
competition in the 50-yard sprint, with
BiU Stott, Gordie Heron and Don McTavish competing in this event. These
three men are all very fast on the
track, and consequently, Varsity
should win hands down.
The same contestants are scheduled
to take part in the 220-yard sprint, and
should provide a good show against
anything Victoria has to offer.
In the 440, Max Stewart and Joe
Roberts will represent Varsity, and
as both of these men are in good
shape, we expect another win for our
track aggregation in this race.
Barclay Races Twice
Herb Barclay is placed in both the
800 and the mile; this would be rather
hard on any athlete, but Herb has
the stamina to pull himseh' through
two long-distance events and give his
rival a good race.
It has been definitely decided that
and our representatives are to be BiU
Stott and Haddon Agnew.
McTavish, Heron and Agnew will
comprise the team in the high jump,
and it is expected that Varsity will
take this even as Agnew is conceded
to be the best high-jumper we have
out here.
Heron Good For Jumps
Broad jump entries are to be Heron, Stott and Stewart, and this is
where Heron is expected to do his
.tuff, since he speciaUzes in this,
branch of track work.
Haddon Agnew, Varsity's stellar
weight man, will throw the shot out
of sight for his Alma Mater.
The entries for the relay, consisting
of four 220-yard laps, have yet to be
chosen from the following five men:
Stott, Heron, Roberts, McTavish and
Stewart; it is probable that either Heron or Stott will start it off.
There will be a meeting for all
those interested In basketball in Arts

Chalmen Quae Close
The Chalmers game was closely
fought throughout with Varsity having a sUght edge. The students finished the first half ahead of the
church squad by a 16-10 score. In
the second period, however, Chalmers crept up and the final whistle
found the two teams deadlocked at
32 all. In the five minute overtime
Varsity held their opponents scoreless and at the same time scored one
basket to win 34-32.
The whole Varsity team turned in
good performances with Prior leading the scoring with 8 points and
Morrison, Thurbur and Wolfe playing especially well.
Ryerson Comes From Behind To Win
Varsity started off strongly in the
game with Ryer.on, and lead 16-10
at half time. However, in the second
period the students repeatedly missed
chances to score and allowed the
boys from Kerrisdale to forge ahead.
The fact that only six players turned
out, also handicapped the Varsity
squad as adequate substitutions could
not be made. Tho final score read
30-24 for Ryerson. Prior and Morrison were < utstanding for Varsity with

Varsity Wins Both Games In Spite of Loss Of
Hay and Henderson
Pringle, Osborne, and Bardsley Show Well
In Both Games
Before an assembled crowd of ten fans, Varsity defeated
McKenzie and Fraser 35-20 in a G.V.A.A. Senior A game at
the U.B.C. gymnasium Friday. It was the first game Varsity
has played without the assistance of Frank Hay and Ralph Henderson, who were declared ineligible for further play. George
Pringle and Dick Wright alternated at filling Hay's former position as guard with Captain Osborne.
Varsity pressed strongly from the t to dominate the play to the final
start with Bob Osborne opening the
scoring foUowed ty a basket by Jim
Bardsley. Osborne played at the top

first half and was largely instrumental in putting the students in the lead.
Pringle also turned in a capable performance at guard. The first period
finished with Varsity on top 18-10.
McDonald started the scoring for
Varsity in the final half with a
trick shot. Osborne, Wright and
Nicholson boosted the home team's

2nd English Rugby
Team White washed
The Blue and Gold second division
English rugby team were reprimanded for playing on Sunday by the
Nanalmo Rugby Club to the tune of
22-0. The second team, which held
the league leading Nanalmo team to
a tie last time they played them,
fielded a scrub team which through
lack of experience were unable to
stop the hard fighting coal heavers.
Due to the fact that it was necessary for the touring ruggers to pay
theu* own expenses it was difficult
for Coach McConnachie to field a
team. So difficult that he was forced
to break his former vows and play
himself. The team was largely composed of third division players who
apparently have more money than
the second team players.
Only once or twice during the game
did Varsity press at all. Nanaimo
opened strongly and continued to
force the play throughout the game.
The opening score came from a beautifully executed drop kick by a Nan-'
almo player. From then on they
romped across the Blue and Gold
line about every five minutes. Their
convert kicking was poor.
Roy McConnachie was forced to
leave the field when he twisted his,
knee after 15 minutes of play. |
Varsity scrum played well but the!
backfield, especially the Inside men
tackled poorly. Nanalmo thoroughly deserved to win.
Varsity team was as follows:
Whitelaw, McConnachie, Sanderson,
Smith, Agnew, Macdonald, Goumeniouk, Wood, Rennie, Douglas, McMullen, Madeley, Colthurst, and
Manager  George Armstrong.
The Senior B BaSketballers had
hard luck in their last game when
they dropped a close contest to Spencers after an overtime. It was anybody's game up to the last few seconds, and the full-time score was 23-23.
George Mckee an! Kay Spence, mainstays of the team, both failed to make
a basket.
The game was a ding-dong affair
from the opening whistle, first one
team scoring and then the other.
Howie Sutton whs going great guns
in the first half, and at half-time
the score was 14-10 for Varsity. The
Students held the edge of the play
during this period.
Spencers dominated play more ln
the second half, and only a strong
Varsity defence prevented a straight
win. Early In the second half Varsity was ahead 20-10, but they faded
rapidly after that and at full time
the score1 stood at 23-23. Spencen
made the odd point in the overtime,
and Varsity had dropped another.
Sutton and Little showed up best
for Varsity. This loss leaves Varsity
without a chanse to get in the playoffs.
Line-up: Sutton 10, Pamore 6, Little 4, Spence 1, McKee 1, Phillips 1,
Harper.   Total 23.

The University of B. C. handed the
Adanacs a severe drubbing in the
basketball game on Saturday night.
The students led throughout the
game, and finished with 49-15 scon.
The Varsity boys started with the
first whistle and dominated the play
all the, way, with Wiiloughby and
Osborne opening the scoring. Then,
in a Jump underneath the basket, McEwen out-jumped Osborne and tipped
the ball into the basket, making the
first tally for the visitors.
Westminster Swamped
For the rest of the half, Vanity
simply walked away from the Adanacs. Shot after shot found the hoop
unerringly, and a strong defense kept
the visitors from scoring during the
first half. The Adanacs were rushed
off their feet by the speed of the
students' attack, and found themselves at half time on the short end
of a 28-4 score.
Adanacs Start Strong
The Westminster squad held the
spotlight for the first few minutes of
the second period but were unable
to sttnd the pace. The Blue and
Gold squad con'inued their offensive
playing ancl dunig the half increased
their lead by ten more points.
Bob Osborne wus high score in both
games.    Pringle,   moved   back   from
the front rank since the forced retirement of Hay, showed well.
