Peace Expected To   .
Reign During Dave's
Term As President
By DORWIN BAIRD
Since April, 1030, when Bernard Brynelsen took offlce as
President of the Alma Mater Socloty, the U. D. C. student body
has been almost continually involved ln some campaign, spectacular project, or controversy. The administration of Jay Oould
continued the policies laid down by Brynelsen, policies which
wore vastly different from thoso of bis predecessor, quiet, unobtrusive Murray Mother.
First, the proposal of an hour and n half noon recess,
coupled with a program of intramural sports, was Introduced ln
tho Fall of 1935. The proposal received tho approval of the
Board of Governors, after passing through an Alma Mater session that saw some bitter
opponents to tho scheme air
their views. Then, a plan
that had been worked by Brynelsen and Oould was put to
tho students. It was suggested that a Memorial Student Union Building be built
as a tribute to the lata Dean
and  Mrs.  R.  W.  Brock.
Hero, even moro heated
arguments wero heard as supporters of the idea tried to
win converts. The plan of
campaign for the raising of
funds was objected to by
many. Rigid restrictions were
laid down, in the attempt to
keep the drive respectable
and ln keeping with the memorial idea. Near the end of
the 1930 Spring term, tbe
students authorized a $10,000
loan, to make up for tbe most
of their share. Detailed results from those campaigning among
business and industrial leaders have not been released yet.
A year ago, Jay Oould defeated William McDuffee in the
presidential elections, and proceeded at once to obtain approval
for tbe Pass System. An Alma Mater meeting passed tbe project, but there was doubt as to the presence of a quorum. Also,
the Governors felt that the sizeable opposition that bad shown
itself was sufficient reason, to postpone official consent, which
they did. Last fall, Gould again took the Pass System to the
students, after winning Science support. He received a good
majority at a well-attended  Alma Mater gathering.
It was only last week that the Board of Governors finally
approved the system. Some changes had to be made, but Oould
and hts Council went through a three months' flght with various
official bodies before a settlement was reached. And now, with
that issue settled, the President la preparing tbe Stadium question for presentation to the students soon.
And so, there has been two years of action. Only tbe major,
much-publicized Issues are mentioned above, but the Councils
of the past years havo been fighting organizations, doing friendly
but determined battle with groups in all divisions ot the university. The Ubyssey bas often refrained from giving undue publicity to such Council activities, realizing that such stories would only widen tbe
breach between the Council
and the particular organization with which it was trying
to reach an agreement at the
time.
When Jay Gould leaves office at the end of this month,
will the date mark a radical
change    in    Council    policy? \
Many  are  asking, will  Dave   .
Carey   avoid   moving   in   any
direction that will mean more
conflict,  argument,  and  difficulty?    They  point out that I
he ls reputedly more "steady"!
than Gould, has not the legal
mind that has often enabled
Jay to see the inevitable success  of  his  ventures.    They), o   ,    ■ ^_^^^^™ ■-.-.-   ~„- .-«-«
say that Carey ls dependable,*-- "•*"* .**-.«b^_____»^^_^_.*|2?i
wise,   and   orthodox.     He   is    ". • . the typical eonaervatlve."
the typical conservative, they claim.        ,
By hts past action, Carey bas proven himself dependable.
His unanimous election was ample demonstration ot the regard
in which he ls held by the students. He had no last-minute
opponent as did Oould. There are few wbo would line up against
blm, which seems to go along with the statement that Dave
will tread the quiet, easy path during his year of offlce.
Yet It can hardly be. said that Dave Carey lacks the fighting
spirit. His record ln tbe field of sport ls enough to prove that
our new President has courage, physical and mental. He bas
stood by Gould the past year ln some of the latter's scrimmages,
and in Council sessions has often expressed liberal ldefta tbat
would shock the many who hear only the English accent when
Carey speaks.
If forecasting the future by casual observations ot the past
is ln any way reliable, it might bo said tbat Dave Carey will
serve the students of U. B. C. well between now and April, 1938.
He will be efficient, will despise pettiness In bis Council sessions, will not be afraid to go campaigning it the need ls urgent.
The President of the Alma Mater Society will be neither a
Murray Mather, a Brynelsen nor a Gould, but lt ls safe to say
that be will be a success in his responsible position.

STUDENTS TO
SEE 'BRONTES'
WEDNESDAY
A father, harsh, undemonstrative, completely ruling hla children's Uvea; a aon, weak and-die-
aipated; .three daughtera, one of
outspoken courage and eager
outlook on Ufa; one hungering
for death, harah, moody; and tho
third,   wlatful   and   home-loving.
It la thla family of dlveraa and
highly complex eharaotera that
the Players' Club will attempt to
portray when they produce Alfred Sangater'a play, "The Brontes," next week.
Studenta' night la Wedneaday
and the play will continue all the
raat of the week. Tlokete for
students are specially priced at
3So and will be on sals In the
Quad Office, Monday, Tuaaday
and Wedneaday noona. Aa tlokete will bs strictly limited, students are advised to obtain thelra
early.
Last year, atudent tlokete had
to ba laauad for other nlghta;
thla will not be repeated. The
Caf will remain open until 7.30,
when the doora will open.
Although the play la a biography in that It revolvea about
this strange family, It Is by no
meana dull or atodgy. On the
contrary, It la Intenaely Intereat-
Ing and at tlmea even thrilling,
aa the charactera evolve from retiring, timid creaturea In a ae-
eluded paraonage, to flgurea
aought out by all the literary
world.
In many waya "The Bronte a"
la comparable to the aenaatlonal
auooeaa, "The Barretts of Wlm-
polo Street." In both, a atern
and tyrannical father dominates
hla family, and It la only through
their determined effort a that
thay break away.
Trained Men Are
Needed in Game
Preservation Field
A bright picture of opportunities
for young men in taxidermy and
allied businesses was given by Mr.
G. ti. Pop when he addressed a
large Vocational Guidance audience
Wednesday noon. Stating that
British Columbia ls the richest
game field in the world, Mr. Pop
outlined the various opportunities
available for young men along this
line.
Those who want to learn taxidermy or similar professions have
to gain much of their knowledge
from others in the same business.
The speaker expressed the opinion
that trained men are noeded to
look after game preservation and to
let the public  know about it.
"There are not enough museums
In Canada," said Mr. Pop. "We
must bring the necessity of'such
institutions, before  the  public."
Where Do You Want
The Bad News Sent?
A statement of marks made on
the April examinations will be sent
to each student about the middle
of May. These statements are sent
to the home addresses unless requests that they be sent elsewhere
are left with  the Registrar.
Students should, without delay,
see that their correct addresses are
in  the Registrar's  Office.
Van Vliet Proteges
Wake Up After
Smearing
Varsity's super-charged Senior
cagers, after being smeared decisively in the opening game of the
current playoff series with Province, canio back with a bang, n
crash and ear-splitting warhoops
onWcdnesday to stage a one-night
revival day, and power their way
to a smashing 36-22 trlump over
Chuck Jones' disillusioned Newsies.
Tho luspircd collegiate victory
came tho hard^ way. All through
tho flrst half, old lady luck continued her fiendish antics, and took
complete charge of nearly all Varsity's Ill-fated shots. Some of her
hypnotic spell disappeared into the
ozouo in the second stanza, with
the result that Maury Van Vliet's
fighting ball club deservedly cashed in on baskets to rocket away
from tbe flat-footed "Giants."

Vancouver Motors' Head
Gives Sound Advice
Leaning back in a swivel chair
in his small glass-partitioned office,
set In a corner of the great plant
of which ie Is manager, his legs
crossed comfortably and his eyes
fixed on a shining vision of tho future, Charles B. Thompson, manager of Vancouver Motors, uttered
a direct and stirring challenge to
youth In an Interview with the
UbysBey  Wednesday afternoon.
KEEN   BUSINESS 8ENSE
Mr. Thompson spoke quietly and
slowly, yet this very restraint
served only to emphasize the vigorous quality of his remarks, which
ho illustrated and drove home with
his hands, in persuasive' yet unobtrusive gestures. Even business
sense, strength of will and a certain visionary outlook were evident as he talked.
"People  aay there  la   little  opportunity   In   the   world   today,"
aald   Mr.   Thompaon,   with   Indignant   enthualaam.     "That   la   untrue.,   There   la  aa  much  opportunity for ambitious young people
aa there ever waa, maybe more.
But it'a no uae Juat aitting baok
and waiting for Joba to fall  Into
their lapa.   They have to get out
and  make their own Joba.
"For that reason, university graduates ought to have an advantage.
People fall to realize that a university    education   is   invaluable   for
students   wishing   to   acquire   business   ability  and   for  making   contacts tbat will aid them later on."

Kite Flying Is
New Pastime
The even tenor of staid conservatism on the U.B.C. campus has
been broken and the U. B. C. has
broken it with its own bizarre originality: We have taken to flying
effigies.
Tho sinister (?) purpose motivating the pretty co-ed and her two
male cohorts in flying their kite
over tho Mall Thursday noon was
at flrst not quite evident. The
thing bore a distinct resemblance
to Prof. Day. But on closer inspection lt became evident that it was
female, possibly Dean Bollert. Like
most kites, it had strings attached
and wore a tall.
The co-ed would not reveal the
name of the movement sponsoring
the demonstration.
C. E. Thompson, prominent Vancouver business man, who will
address an open meeting in Arts

sponsorship of the Alumni Vocational Committee.

CAREY
NO ATTEMPT
TO CONTEST
ELECTION OF
RUGBY CHIEF
David Edward Carey, unopposed, stepped Into the
shoes of John Groves Gould
as President of the Alma
Mater Society of the University of British Columbia, on
Wednesday afternoon, at live
o'clock, by which time no
other nominations had, according to election regulations, been submitted to
Council offices.
RUQBV CAPTAIN
Not since six yeara ago, when
the present system of student administration came into being, haa
the President of the Alma Mater
Society been acclaimed.
The   acetamation  thla  year of
Davo Carey la felt to be a tribute
to and a recognition of hla outstanding  ability and  aervlcea  to
tho atudent body during the three
yeara   he   has   attended   Unlveralty.
Dave sprang into campus prominence through his stellar abilities
as an  English rugby player.    For
the past year he has been captain
of   the   first-string   team,   and   has
been    tbe    representative    of    tbe
Men's  Athletics  on  Student  Council.
It is common knowledge that the
success of the rugby club and of
the new intramural programs have
been due largely to his unflagging
work. He is at present actively
engaged on the Stadium proposition.
Co-eds Debate With
Men On Issues
Of National Radio
Co-eds debated against university
men for the first time ln over eight
years when tbe Literary Forum,
represented by Kay Armstrong and
Claire St. John, opposed Jim McDonald and Bill Sibley of the Parliamentary Forum, Thursday noon,
in Arts 100.
The women upheld the resolution "Tbat the government regulations of a national radio hookup
can best serve tbe Canadian public"
In answer to tbe main accusation of the affirmative that only
government control would eliminate blattant advertising and provide cultural programs,'BUI Sibley
of tbe negative,- referred to tbe
symphony concerts and grand opera programs recently sponsored
by commercial corporations witb
no more than identification of the
company ln the way of advertising.
There was no vote taken on the
most convincing arguments.
Ubyssey On One
A Week Schedule
Commencing with this issue, the
Ubyssey will publish once a week
until the end of March. Deadline

SPRING
We, the Ubyssey, now officially declare that Spring has
arrived.
According to ancient campus tradition, there were three
signs and portents' by which students could infallibly detect
the arrival of Spring. First, the fountain the quad gushed
forth ln all its glory again;'secondly, tho editor-in-chief propelled himself out of the Pub window followed by all the
staff, and thirdly, the poets blossomed forth with Spring
pottery ln the paper.
We regret to report that the quad fountain had this
year made a mistake and forgotten to flow, that the editor-
in-chief is, afraid of the bushes outside the window and that
the advertising leaves no room for pottery in th,e paper. Nevertheless, Spring is here. How do we know? Lloyd Banner-
man is wearing no vest, no coat, no tie and is wearing light
shirt, pants and summer shoes. Also, there are numerous
dreamy-eyed couples wandering sea-ward.
Anyway, Happy Spring to you all.
NO ELECTION INTEREST /
With Council nominations duo by Wednesday, it IS forecast by many that several positions will be filled by acclamation. Thoro is a comploto lack of election intoroBt on tho

no opposition, for his position requires more character and
ability than the minor offices.
It will be a disgrace if any other office is filled without
a contest.
Eight members of the student Board of Directors will
be chosen March 16. In the Interests of good government

On the Disappearance of
Parents
ay a. o| sasoawio-E
Ae persons worthy or any serious
public consideration, parents would
seem to bo disappearing from .tne
Bcone. They ore setting loss and Jess
attention, apparently, /r°™, JPe°P,S
who devote themselves to uplift, and
the name and number of the upllfters
Is lesion. It is
grudgingly admitted, of course, that
parenthood ls still
a regrettable necessity, for without lt
there would be no
children to lift up.
And In that case,
since children are
usually the chief
victims of the un-
llftor'H attention,
his noble occupation would be gone.
Pro). Sedgewick
These nad reflections   arise   from   reading   soma   eloquent  (and frequently wise)  remarks
mndo by one of our local clergy.
It appears that, on two consecutive
days, school children broke a church
window on their way homo. It likewise appears that tho*nchool principal
proved unable to identify tho culprits
or shamo thorn Into confession. Further, ho tho complaint pnen, a university student lately failed to own
uii   to  a  much   mnro   serious   offense,.
Reasoning from those premises, tbo
worthy  gentleman   Implies  that  "con
duct ot this kind shows a lamentable
lack of moral training" in the schools
In general and,  so one would gather.
In the University as well.
•     ■     •
Without any doubt whatsoever, the
clergyman ia right in calling moral
training the "big factor in education."
Nor Is there any doubt that moral
training means, as he says, "the training of the will." (I gently suggest to
my spiritual superior that this la a
very difficult term and that he should
review his psychology before Anally
making up his mind about it.)
.. To the eyo of a layman, howovor,
there seems to be eomo gapa ln the
clerical reasoning on this one occasion.
Textbooks on logic used to. say that
It was a fallacy to leap too abruptly
from the particular to the general.
Are three offenses quite enough to
nupvort or suggest a condemnation of
the whole school system and even of
democracy at largo?
Whether or not the writer really
meant to be so sweeping, that is certainly tho Impression which his remarks must havo given to everyone
who read them. What larger body of
definite evidence, uncolored by prejudice, goes to show that the schools
arc neglecting moral training?
nven granting that they are, a lav-
man wonders If the olergymnr/n
church ought not to shoulder at least
a share of tho responsibility for moral
defect on tho young. Are we to believe that tho church, nn well as tho
school, is lamentably lacking In moral
foree?

Don't Talk About
Your Dreams-—They
Reveal Character
"A great deal of muslo and art
of thla world Is due to daydreaming," stated Or. Ewlng, Professor of Psychology at tho Normal Sohool, whsn ha apoke to
Phraterea, Monday night. "It la
posalble to dream towarda a certain goal, but an overflux of daydreaming may drive you to abnormality."
The apeaker divided hla leoture
Into two parte, day-dreama and
nlght-dreama. The former Involves "thinking" or "solving
problems," "mental meandering,"
which explains It aelf, and "daydreaming with a definite direction, uaually vvlsbf I In. character. He then outlined the atagea
of day-dreama: The "fantaatlo"
onea of Infancy, the "conquering
hero" or "Buffering hero" ones of
childhood, tho "Ideallstlo" dreama
of adoleaeenee; "the modern love
Btory ia mn example of thla type,"
the apeaker declared.
"When you find that your day-
dreama are of a remlnlacent type,
It la a sign that you're getting
old. If of a eonatruetlvo type,
you're atlll young."
Dr. Ewlng continued: "We
dream all night, but we fqrget
our night-dreams. As one goes
to sleep, thero la a partial dlaaa-
' soelatlon of tha personality, and
ons'a control and standard of
eonduot are changed and lowered, censorship bslng lost. There
are three types of night-dreams:
"Patohworks from vivid reality-
It la Impossible to dream an utterly new experlenee In dreams";
there are the "repreaeed wlahee"
and the "repreaeed feare." In the
latter, fears eome baek to annoy
you In dreams. Whan the objeo*
tlonable thing Is ao repulsive aa

Sports shoes are one of the big features of the new shipments at
HAI SONS IUDGIT SHO*. So with spring in the air we decided it was
time to go down to 644 Granville St. and take a look at fhe new styles.
These sport shoes are made in Hollywood and those Californians
certainly kept the college girl in mind. Nothing Is more suitable for
campus wear than sport suede oxfords. There are a variety of styles to
choose from—you may wear tongued models, or those with the new
mocassin and square toes. Oblong eyelets are among the new features
of this year's styles
No matter what your preferences in shoes are you will be satisfied
af Rae Sons.
In case you have forgotten, keep in mind that blue, grey and brown
are the leading spring colours.

We don't like to be mercenary or something, but we might as Well
admit that there are such things as graduation presents. And here is the
tip, such presents are much more likely to be forthcoming if admiring
friends and relatives receive portraits of you in a gown and hood.
So be wise and order more graduation pictures from ASIR now
while the reduced prices are still in effect. A picture by Aber is designed
to please the most criticising relative.

And here's some advice if you are going to need a blouse for that

Two-piece tweed suits are a smart addition to Spring wardrobes.
Short tailored jackets with many pockets and wide reefers are popular

Musical Society proteges and aspirants to the grease paint of the
Players' Club will possibly be afflicted with a spasm of painful disillusionment when they learn that
staid old McOlll has gone scientific
in Its pursuit of dramatlo art.
One Morris Heoht, dlreetor of
tho MoOill Dramatlo Sohool, haa
requeated hla students to Imagine the oampua completely aub-
merged In water and to reaot accordingly. To mako the gamo
more fun ho haa olted detalla
whioh are, to wit: the oampua
aubmerged under two and a half
feet of water so thst elassss had
to be held on the third floor of
the various buildings.
Outside of the fact that the Incipient actors here who are ot
more than two or three years'
standing at U.B.C. have already
bad the opportunity of reacting to
flood conditions, and outside ot the
fact that the seoond and third
floors of our buildings are more
than two and a half feet from terra
flrma, it's all very Interesting.
MOON WAS ABSENT
Some of the reactions were rather amusing. One poor cbap of
rather mongolian tendencies went
through the pantomime of drowning; another with a vivid imagination and an infancy complex, having always fondly dreamed of being
a ferryman in the manner of Mr.
Ship, began to fall into his role and
ferry fair maidens in distress to
those "nine o'clocks in the Arts
Building"— spoil-sport! According
to the McOill Dally be seemed to be
having a lot of fun and, at five
cents a trip, to be making a lot of
money—only he regretted the absence of a moon. The moon somehow spoils the illusion, since all
such chivalrous rescues are usually
carried out under the force ot a
howling wind and lashing rain
under a dark, ominous sky with
the occasional bolt of lightning and
accompanying roar of thunder. But
perhaps that would be too uncomfortable.
Professor Gags Is Elected
as Honorary
Prexy
Gordon Morris, Scienceman, was
elected president of the graduating

the opportunities offered after Joining. The association is a medium to
organise the main strength of tho
Alumni. Most of the activities are
those of a social nature, but bulletin
is edited, tho Chronicle, which
servos as a link to members of tho

We read in the Washington
Daily that the boys and girls of the
School of Journalism there are going on a week's tour. They plan
to edit six Washington papers ln
their annual professional field tour
with Professors Byron H. Christian,
Robert Mansfield, and Head ot the
Department, Vernon MacKensle, as
advlaors. They will spend a day
studying each paper before editing
the edition and the class will be
split to make this possible. It's
wonderful how few people can put
out a paper when they make It
their business and when it is part
of their academic training.

Re academics ... a member of

a flair for lean and biting humor,
has spent some weeks intermittently intimating that the Ubyssey ls
possessed ot some incidental failings. We are honored that this
gentleman reads our paper and we
gently suggest that he be more
constructive. This paper is run
on the lines of Journalistic necessity . . . the necessity ot being
brief  and   to  the  point.
We write for a student audience
and must, perforce, be light and
interesting, and, at times, use unusual phrases, etc., which will best
convey what we mean to our readers. And our readers have not the
time, while we have neither the
time nor the space for the adoption
of the methods which were formerly used to accomplish literary
flights of fancy. We humbly suggest tbat the English Department
consider journalism ln the light of
present-day fact and offer some
practical suggestions.

Varsity Wins Again!
Vanquish EHensburg 31-27
By HUGH SHIRREFF
With Willoughby and Pringle ln
starring roles, the Varsity Senior
"A" basketball team gained a revenge victory over the Ellensburg
Normal yesterday noon. Fighting
from behind for the most of the
way, tbe Thunderbirds finally eked
out a 31-27 win. The game was featured by the return to form of Art
Willoughby, who rang up ten points
and waa the spark-plug of the team
all the way.
SECOND LINE STARTS
In the flrst half Coach Maury
Van Vllet started his second
string who allowed the teachers
to get away to an 8-2 lead, which
was increased to 16-10 at the end
of the half. When the regulars
finally did come in the change
was hardly noticeable, as the only
significant thing that they did
was to hold their checks fairly
well. Bardsley and Matthison
seemed tired from the Province
game and could not get going.
At the beginning of the second
half, with Willoughby doing the
most of the offensive work and
Pringle doing likewise on the defensive Varsity brought the score
to 19 all. Then Fring dropped in a
couple of long ones and this seemed
to be the sparkplug that tlie Birds
needed, because from then on their
plays started to click and tbey
brought the count to 31-27. During
the last few miviutes they put on
a perfect stalling act and Ellensburg couldn't get their hands on the
ball to score.

Colthurst Favourite
For Big Race
The Rita-Van Vliet track aggregation has a great deal of unfinished business on the cinder venue
for this week with three interesting
events prepared for the pleasure of
the track-hungry populace.
CROSS COUNTRY
The premier event is the cross
country, which ia starting in
about fifteen minutes at the West
Mall. Among the well-filled list
of starters for thia stellar event
is the Rosemont of the Mall Race,
the strong favourite, tho strong
runner — the — strong — Paddy
Colthurst. "It looks like a cinch
win for the big boy," is the authoritative verdict of Joe Rita.
Next Tuesday is the date for another Mall race—this time a sprint
distance run which will be a Van
Vliet intra-mural feature. Each
class will be limited to twenty contestants (boy, are they optimistic).
On Wednesday at 3.30, class track
members will compete in the annual Arts '20 road race, with the
Aggies tho strong favourites to
garner the most points for the hay-

A Style that Goes to School!
London, tha seat of learning when it
conies to style, is endorsing the suit
shown here by popularizing a similar
model. Tip Top's designing staff
created this one—and it's a great
combination of unusual smartness and
loungy comfort. As is evident, this
is a single-breasted model with two
buttons. A slightly longer coat, trousers cut full, tapering at the knees and
cuffs. Fullness through the chest gives
a soft draped effect. A suit with true
British spirit—stands plenty of wear
but always presents a good front to
the world. Hand-cut and tailored to
measure.

Planned To Reveal
Character Secrets
Color Tones Are
Carefully Used
The psychological significance of the characters in
Alfred Sangster's play, "The
Bronte's," has been woven
into the oostumes designed
by Mis Dorothy Somerset and
Ellen Boving, convenor of the
costume oommlttoe.
During the early days In Haw-
orth parsonage, while the famous
slaters   were   trying   to   aaeaps
from   the   domination   of   tholr
atom  Vlotorlan  father, the   Rev.
Patrlok    Bronte,   their   subdued
spirits   were   typified   by   their
drab slothes.
Charlotte  Bronte,  the  propelling
force  behind  the  struggles  of the
sisters,   is   attired   ln   a   Victorian
hooped gown of harsh brown. Later
after  the death  of  her  aunt,  she
wears a similar model of unrelieved black.   When success comes and
her novels prove to be best sellers,
she celebrates her new found freedom by donning fashionably colorful clothes.    One of her favorites Is
a rich purple, hooped and flounced
In true Victorian style.
CLIMAX IN WHITS
The climax of her career ls
reached when she wears the white
net gown at her wedding to the
Rev. Arthur Nicholls. This luxurious dress is a mass of cascading
lace ruffles and In its magnificence
one can clearly read the distance
she has travelled since the early
dull parsonage days.
Emily,   whose   genius    had    a
touoh    of    myatielsm,    waa    the
more  unoonventlonal  of the  sisters   and   throughout   rafuaed   to
wear   tha  at Iff  hoopa   preserlbad
by Victorian eonventlon. She waa
fond of long, lonely walka on the
Vorkahlre moors and thla love of
nature    ia   typified    by   the   aoft
green aha waara during the early
aeenea. Later, aa her lllneaa galna
aaoedaney, her mood la refleeted
In  aombre  greya.
Gentle, resigned Anne, the youngest    sister,    contents    herself    with
black and dull beige throughout the
play.
SHREWISH  WIFE
Miss Branwell, the maiden aunt,
was a belle In her younger days
and is still not unmindful of her
attire, being one ot tbe few characters ln the play to wear silk. Her
rich, red gown ts cut in the extreme of fashion with enormous
hoops and ruffles and worn with a
large frilled cape. Mme. Meger,
the shrewish wife ot Charlotte's
Belgium teacher, ls also a devotee
ot the goddess ot fashion, attiring
herself In au attractive henna
gown with bands of dark brown
around the wide skirt.

Players Executive
Kept Busy With
Numerous Duties
Evary Mambar Forced
To Do Double Duty
In Production
As in every major undertaking
there must be a "power behind the
scenes," so it was with "The Brontes." Co-ordinating tho work of all
committees, and keeping a watchful
eye on the progress of the play,
the Executive of the Players' Club
has been one of the hardest worked
groups in the Club.
In   addition   to   his   ordinary
dutiea, each of tho Bxeoutlve haa
taken  on  numerous  other  joba,
rushing hither and thither until
thoy gave tho appearance of being candidates for title of hard*
eat*worked people on tho campus.
As president of tho Club, Nora
Olbaon acted aa general supervisor,
seeing   that   all   committees   were
accomplishing their work, removing
all complaints and generally being
responsible for the production. Sho
also had to provide tea for the cast
at their rehearsals.
LIGHTING BY LARSEN
The vice-president, Pat Larsen,
alao waa kept on the move during
the paat few weeks. Besides helping with ticket sales, he waa re-
aponaible for the stage lighting, no
mean job in itself as the right light
can be obtained only after numerous tests.
Hasel Merten, Secretary, was in
charge of mailing invitations and
circulars and acted as promptor,
whilst Hasel Wright, Treasurer,
had to keep track of all expense
accounts incurred outside of the
play itself.

Though there is leas scope tor design In the male oostumes, these
are also designed to fit the characters. Branwell Bronte, the neurotic and dissipated brother of tbe
novelists, chooses a magnificent
wine cutaway with waistcoat, richly
embroidered, while in contrast, his
stern father wears severe clerical
black throughout. The oomlo character of the office boy who puts in
a brief appearance during the scene
ln the publishing house, is made
more humorous by his overaise
check coat and hla undcrslse trousers. All male costumes have the
long, narrow trousers, the high
cravats and the' frilled cuffs typical of the mid-Victorian era.
Players Bring Novel
Production Here As
Spring Presentation
After weeks of strain and work with hours of rehearsals
daily the Players' Club have their spring production, "The
Brontes," a charaoter study of the three famous writer sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne, ready for their opening
performance tonight.
The play centres around Rev. Patrick Bronte, the dominating father of the three talented girls, who tries to regulate their dull life on the moors of Yorkshire. This difficult
role of the disagreeable father will be played by Art Sager,
who portrayed the Jolly old nobleman, Sir Charles, ln "She
Stoops to Conquer," last spring.
FATHBR  ALLOWS   NO  CURTAINS OR   FRILLS
The flrst act opens ln their drab parsonage home in the moors. The
house Is furnished in an austere Victorian style, the' furniture being
made of dark mahogany and rosewood. A feature of this scene ls two
family portraits iu crayon done especially for the play by Charmian
McArthur. Accentuating the bareness of the rooms are the windows,
curtalnless, because Mr. Bronte has an abnormal tear of fire. For this
reason also, he makes his daughters wear plain woollen dresses without
frills and  full  skirts.

Miss Somerset has directed Players' Club productions for the
past  three or four years,  and has been  in charge of many

STRUGGLE   IN   AOTION
Only Miss Branwell, the girl's
maiden aunt, portrayed by Edith
Spencer, who has given up her
fashionable life in Brussels to
bring up the three motherless girls,
dares wear fashionable silks. She
treats the girls with distant and
reserved manners so that they turn
to the old domestic servant, Tabltha, played by Adella Thurber, the
assistant director of the play, for
affection.
Tha aotlon reveals the struggle
of   Charlotte,   Emily   and   Anne,
who arm characterised by Audrey
Phillips,    Beth    Qlllandere   and
Mary  Meleod, to fulfill their literary ambitions In the faoe of the
opposition whieh they enoounter

Pretty Ushers Learn
Fundamentals of
Walking With Grace
General impression of Varaity
students is that only the actors
in the Spring Play have to re
hearse. But Pat MacRae could
tell them otherwise.
For Patricia is in charge of the
house arrangements and of the
"ushering." As usual, the fairest
and most agreeable looking female members of the Players'
Club have ben chosen to perform
this task. They are the ones who
have the closest contact with the
public and who represent the
club in the public eyes.
Strange as it may aeem, however, even some pretty ladiea
can't skim gracefully down an
aisle ahead of patrons, ao the
ushers chosen are being taught
some of the fundamentals of
graceful walking.

of handsome doormen. This year

One  chair in  particular ls  upholstered ln beaded tapestry.
TO DRINK?
Tbe point of highest emotional
interest ln the plot of the play occurs in tbe business office of the
printer when the two oldest and
most aggressive sisters whose writings had recently caused a sensation throughout the country under
the pen names, Acton Bell and
Currer Bell, turn out to be women.
During this soene the two women
do not know whether or not to
drink brandy to oelebrate their
newly-attained   success.
The "true-to-llfe" serleusnosa
of thla play brought particularly
to notloe at tho death of the two
younger elatero whose healtha
have been Impaired during their
etay In Belgium, la brought to a
ellmax with Charlotte's death following shortly after her marriage
to the ourate, Nichols.
Other members of the cast are:
Branwell, played by Oraham Darling; Mme. Heger, Lorraine Johnson; Smith, Charles Locke or Fred
Hobson; Williams, Oeorge Shiles;
Thackeray, Bob McCormack; Willie Welghtman, Don Cameron; Rev.
Nichols, Lud. Beamish; M. Heger,
Oeorge Lewis; Miss Wooler, Lois
Still, and the office boy, Reg. Wilson.
This presentation is among the
first of this play to be given in the
United States and Canada, as the
play has never been produced professionally in North America. The
production follows the new policy
of the Players' Club to produce well
known heavier drama, a policy
which the audiences have received
with appreciation in "She Stoops to
Conquer," and particularly "Hedda
Oabler,"   presented  two  years  ago.
Make-Up Presents Big
Problem to Players
For tbe past week, Mary Moxon,
chairman of the make-up department, assisted by an able committee, bas been working ln feverish
haste to perfect make-ups for tbe
varied facials of the Brontes cast.
The main obstacle, which haa
been overcome. Is that of aging the
characters for a period ot SO yeara,
many characters being middle-aged
at the beginning ot the play.
BRONTES IS
CONTRAST TO
PRAIRIE AIR
Two major attractions for the price of one.
That is what U. B. C. students are offered this evening,
following an arrangement between the Players' Club and the
Basketball Club. Students will be able to see both the speolal
performance of "The Brontes" and the fourth game ln the
city championship basketball series, using a double ticket
to be sold on the campus today for 50 cents.
The play will start In tho Audi*
tori urn  at S.48  prompt,  and  the
same will be held until after the
performance   Is  over.     It   la  en*
peoted that moot of the play audienoe will wlah to aee the game,
and tha speolal arrangement haa
boon made In order that neither
attraction should lose beoauae of
tho Intorferenoe of tho other.
Those who have already secured
35 cent "Brontes" tloketa for tonight may get the special ticket by
paying an additional IS cents, It is
announced.
INTEREST  IN QAMI
The combined attraction will enable students, ln one night, to tako
in what should turn out to be the
two biggest thrill's of the year. The
Province team ls threatening to
show new form when lt meets Varaity ln thla deolaive enoounter. No
effort will be spared by the Jones
Boys in their attempt to take a
little of the cockiness out ot the
student Ave. After Varsity's 38-8?
viotory Saturday, Interest In the
series haa reached a peak.
Aa for the "Brontea," advance
notlcea hall lt aa an outatandlng
aoootnpliehment of theatrical art.
There Is no doubt, at any rate, that
the play will bring to the campus
something different from any previous production. For those who
have never seen a Players' Club
presentation, there Is a pleasant
surprise awaiting. Every minor detail of the production has been
worked  out  to  perfection.
PSYCHOLOGICAL
The eonfllet of temperaments,
repressions   dangeroua   In   thetr
latent powers of damage, neuroa-
oa and paraaeutlon oomplaxee all
figure In the  plot of "The  Brontea,"  moro truly  a  payohologieal
than an aotlon drama.
Overstressed and unfitting as ls
the comparison, there are similarities In the characters of the Reverend Bronte and of Mr. Barrett,
from Wlmpole Street. While Eld-
ward Moulton-Barrett was nearer
sadism in his complex and sinister
mentality, Mr. Bronte dominates
his helpless family through a
senseless urge to tyranny—selfish,
completely crushing trailer personalities with whom he comes in contact.
The   bleak   grlmnaea   of   Haw-
orth   pareonage,  where  the wind
aweepa over the moors with mat-
anoholy power,  la Intensified by
this   unreaaonlng,  blind,  egolotle
personality that Insists on asserting   Itself   In   oruelty   and   Iron-
olad discipline.

COACH TELLS ALL; GIVES
LOWDOWN ON U. HOOPERS
"Wa haven't lost a gama since our half-time conference
in the office . . . and wa're not staring now." . . . Maury
Down in the Van Vllet office yesterday, Maury was doing a little pre-game figuring dn tonight's game. The result
of his brain twisting seemed to be that the boys at least
wouldn't quit fighting (we knew that anyway), but as to
any definite prediction he'll leave that to Chuck "Spurgie"
Jones, Province coach and notorious guesaer as to basketball outcomes.
SUPERSTITIONS
The strangest thing about baseball ls the strange number ot superstitions that infest the players'
minds, but it seems that baseball
isn't the only screwy sport; witness "Burp" Wllloughby'a mania
for shooting until he drops one ln
before the game starts. The other
member of the "Gold-Dust Twins,"
Jim Bardsley, isn't aa 'queer' as Art
but you'll always see him passing
the pill to Willoughby so Art can
Bhoot. This same Jimmy plays the
Part of the "Spirit of Relaxation"
when he's on the floor, no matter
what he's doing when on the floor
shooting, dribbling, or passing,
you'll see him taking his time. May-
he he's pretty smart at that, saving
his energy tor tbe tough spots.
More snapshots ln the Van Vliet
manner: Bill- Swan Is one player
that Maury can't figure. Before the
game and on the bench, Swan doesn't seem to care whether he gets ln
the game or not. But "Oh Boy,"
when he's ln there he's the hardest
working player on either team.
Maury's chief delight In winning a
game is that "Hunk" Hsnderson
never crabs tor at least five minutes after the final whistle.
"Jo-Jo" Pringle Is the steadiest
player in the,league, but he's actually embarrassed when anvbody
mentions that little fact. Mr. Van
Vllet says ho never knows what
Rann Matthison is going to do
next; nobody else does either,
Maury. Sddla Armatrong ls a good
defensive player and most reliable
sub on the team. He played tor
Province when they won the Dominion Championship and was also
on Varsity's champ team. Prank
Mitchell doesn't get much chance
with all the rest of the stars, but
Maury thinks he's the best prospect
on the team. "Spud" Davis is perhaps the most conscientious member on the team—always in good
condition; he's a good sub centre.
"Hank" Hudaon has one ot the best
eyes on the team; it's nearly a
cinch he'll score when he lets fly.
Prank "Curly Harper" Turner is a
good relief man—works hard and
is fast enough to worry the opposition.
everybody knows how the team
flocks into Maury's office at half-
time for a little pep talk; what the
coach tells them we don't know,
but it certainly must be dynamite.
The team hasn't lost a game since
they started doing that and you can
take it from Van Vliet that they
won't start tonight.

PLAY
(Continued from Paso t)
It is the reaction of the sisters
and their brother, Branwell, to his
character that makes up the texture of the play. Charlotte, soaked
ln the Victorian concept of filial
devotion, acquiesces and humors
the old man; yet she has courage,
Anally, to leave him and marry,
when he has turned with strange
cruelty and revoked his permission
for her marriage. Anne, a normal,
sweet, wholly appealing character,
In sheltered by the strong fibre ot
Charlotte's temperament: but the
life of the parsonage and her own
hereditary illness overcome her
and cause her death. The poetess,
Emily, strong, withdrawn, aloof
from the pettiness of social convention, solves her own destiny and
meets  death with lonely courage.
Oat your Brontes-Baskotball tlok-
et right now.    Only 60 eenta.
The most dangerous player on
the Province team is Osborne, who
at this time is leading the race for
scoring honors. Another Province
player who bears watching is Purves, but with "Henny" to shadow
him, "Long John" won't get many
points. A thorn in the side of Varsity on Saturday was Bumstead,
but Pringle promises to work on
him tonight, and Arne won't get a
chance to get hot tonight.

Final Battle Tonight?
Maybe we're superstitious. Or perhaps it is just that this is such
a good shot of our senior hoopers. Anyway, once again we give
you a candid camera shot of the last game before the playoffs
when the Thunderbirds gave the "Giants" their famous trouncing. Art Willoughby has just broken through and in spite of the
close checking of Kennington, Purves and McLellan, sank the
leather a split second later. The player who looms so big in the
foreground of this tableau is none other than Rann Matthison,
while just across from him is Bill Swan, whose deadly sniping has
been the bane o fthe Newsies' existence, and who is expected to
count heavily in the students' game with the Jones Boys tonight.
WILL THERE BE A REVIVAL
OF ANCIENT VICTORIAFEUD?
By PRANK PBRRY
Let's go into a basketball huddle with patriarchal Father Time for
a minute and have him turn the clock back two years for us, while wo
follow the birds on their backward flight to Victoria.
It's the occasion ot the laat game ln the B. C. championship flnala
with the Capital City'a Blue Ribbons and Vancouver's Varsity, fighting
a thrill-crowded basketball embrogllo for the right to meet the Blast for
the basket laurels of the Dominion.
The gull city gym ls crowded—with the front bleachers occupied
by the good citizens of Pattullo Town, while far up ln the smoke-filled
gallery sit a weaving, arm-waving victory-crazy, yelling throng of
Thunderbird supporters. Far, far down on the floor, Just able to discern the milling, Blue-Gold mob is a lone Varsity yell leader vainly
attempting to extricate himself from the barrage of tomatoes, old shoes,
and other miscellaneous missiles hurled at him by the pro-Victorian
Blue Ribbon crowd.
Tbe Thunderbirds are playing against a team that spells "ultimate"
ln basketball perfection. On the lineup are the invincible Chapman
brothers, Chuck and Art, assisted by Porky Andrews, Red Martin and
Doug Peden. Opposing them are "Bugs" Bardsley, Oeorge Pringle,
Ralph Henderson, Art Willoughby and Bill Swan.
Thes core is knotted at 37-all and only a tew minutes are left before
tbe final whistle. What a set-up tor those Varaity opportunists to take
the basketball palm ot the West! This story, however, like "The
Brontes," has a sad conclusion. The final score was 88 for Blue Ribbons,
37 tor Varsity.
Now let's get back to the present. That lamentable finish provided
a very unhappy basketball climax two years ago, but today, with the
Domino game drawing near, that match ot two years ago is the impetus
for a good deal of chop-licking. For the squad ot super dynamic hoop-
sters who trundle out to the basketball floor this year for Varaity ia
practically the same one that played against Blue Ribbons ln that eventful game of two yeara ago. On the other hand, the revamped Dominoea
have none of the old-guard Blue Ribbons with the exoeption of the
Chapman brothers. Tom Mansfield and Dick Wright, who sparkplugged
the squad ln 1935, are no longer present, but t oflll their shoes Varsity
has Eddie Armstrong and Rann Matthison, a duo that spells perfection
in any language.

and most heetio press daya yesterday, thia reporter settled in a
aingle spot long enough to figure
thero should be a "Jones" angle to
all thia pre-game babbla on to
night's game—and here's tho result,
in the form of a short, pointed
phone conversation:
"OUT TO WIN"
Says the Ubyssey stooge, using
a pseudonym: "Chuch, what do you
think about your chancea In the
fourth game at Varsity 7" To
whieh tho wily Jones maestro replied interrogatively: "Who, and
what do you want to know for?"
Upon being assured that our Intentions wero not libelous, tho Province mastermind oame back with
the conventional, "We're out to
win."
But, to continue our dialogue:
Query:—"What happened on Saturday  night,  tough  breaks 7"
Answer:—"No, we just lost."
Query:—"Don't you think the
Collegians' home floor will be a
disadvantage ? "
Answer:—"No, we've taken them
before on their own floor, and we
can do it again."
Query:—"Well, then, Chuck, you
figure on wiping the court with
Van Vliet's cagers in the coming
battle?"
Answer:—"I'm not expecting any
walkover, if we can rub it in by a
one-point victory I'll be happy."
And from such a conversation,
this writer sort of got tho idea that
Mr. Chuck Jones hasn't any illusions about the "Crushal" game,
but he's not floundering either. It's
a safe bet that when hia elongated
Newsies trot on the Varsity floor
tonight they'll come on with fire in
their eyes, and murder In their
hearts—page Van Vliet t

Sc. '40 versus Sc. '87.
With    a    two-to-one   lead    in
games, and playing in their own
backyard, tho Students aro strong
favorltoa  to  do  a  giant  killing
act and write flnls to tho melon-
tossing activities of tho newsmen
for the yoar. Down at tho V.A.C.
gym   on   Saturday    night,   tho
Thunderbirds had enough of tho
rah-rah apirit to oko ont a thrilling  88*87  win, and  It remains
to bo soon  whether tho  Giants
can come through under adverse
conditions.    The   odds   aro   all
against them, but yon novor can
toll  what  may   happen   In   this
yoar of upsets.
Despite   all   argumetfta   to   tho
contrary, tho Varsity shooting has
definitely  beon  "off"  during tholr
last few  encounters  and,  say tho
players,  tonight  is  the  night  for
such things to cease.   In tho last
three games it is one or two men
who did most of tho scoring, which
is   all   wrong.    Varsity's   style   of
play calls upon every man to take
his share of tho shots.
One look at the free throwing
situation confirms this as the blue
and gold squad haa been missing
over fifty per cent, of their shots.
In an attempt to remedy this major calamity, Coach Maury Van
Vllet has been making the boys
take fifty of the gift ahota a day.

In a Stirling performance on Saturday  night.   In the  opinion of
the Cheney  coach  and our own
Maury Van Vllet, Art ia one of
the best play makers on tho Pacific   Coast   and   on   the   largo
Varsity floor he will have a real
chance to ahow hts prowess.
Jimmy  Bardsley  has not found
his shooting eye in this seriea, but
he'a had a real headache in trying
to  hold  down Bob  Oaborne, high-
scoring   Newsle.    This   ex-Varsity
star has been poison to the Studes
in the previous gamea, but "Bugs"
figures  that it  is  his  turn  to  be
watched   and   he  will   be   out  for
points in this crucial tilt tonight.
Joe Pringle and Rann Matthison
are proving "gold nuggets" on tho
Thunderbird rear guard.   Although
their    point - gathering    activities
have not been prolific, their snatching  of  Province  heaves has  boon

THE N. H. L. HAS A "BIG SIX" WHY NOT US?
Hare
cage stars to
ed
Bardsley,
's six very big reasons why Chuck Jones' Province team are going to bow out of the playoff picture tonight.   It's pretty tough trying to get these su
 o keep stationery long enough to "pan" 'em, but we did—yessir.  On the left you'll find the Blue and Gold squad's fiery, fighting captain, Jimmy "Bugs
who'll continue his constant driving through the Newsy defense tonight. Eyes right, and you'll see one of the smoothest players in B. C., Art "Burp" Willoughby, current leader
in scoring. Next in line, and a new cut at that, is none other than "Long John" Purves' nemesis, Ralph "Hunk" Henderson. One more shift, and you're confronted with Varsity's
trickster on defense, speedy Rann Matthison. Next, rebound-snatching dead-eye George "Joe" Pringle, who is going great guns in this series. Last, but fsr from least, we come
across Bill "Ducky-Wucky Swan. Another of the regulars not planted above is Eddie Stringer" Armstrong, who did a swell job of checking Purves in the final minutes of Isst
Saturday's game. '
