90 Soup Songs
Sung Sloppily
Says   Student
The only article on the menu of
our cafeteria that has received an
increase in demand is water. For
aqua pura has jumped to popularity
by leaps and bounds, or maybe by
slurps and gurgles. Next ln demand
comes soup. Two kinds are ladled
out every noon hour at five cents
per bowl with- crackers free; this and
perhaps a nickel sandwich make up
the lunch of the   average   student.
This represents a drop of 50 percent over last year's quota. But
even that is not the worst, more students than ever before are bringing
their entire lunches to school, and
these non-paying customers clutter
up the caf by the scores. "And leave
their lunch papers lying around the
tables instead of putting them where
they belong." Mr. UnderhUl, manager of the cafeteria, added. This
means extra work for the staff which
could easily be prevented with a little care on the part of the students.
Collegers are hanging on to their
extra dimes and nickels these days.
Sales in cones and chocolate bars
have dropped at an alarming rate.
But in spite of these discouraging
facts the university cafeteria is able
to maintain the best twenty-five cent
meal hi the city, says Mr. UnderhUl.
Four kinds of fresh vegetables are
there for the luncher to choose from
with several varieties of main
courses to go with them. "We aren't
serving this special at six o'clock
yet," says Mr. UnderhUl, "but wait
till the end of November comes
around." At which time a sudden
rush of awakening Varsityites crowd
the library and labs until long after
bedtime, and need no small sustenance to cope with the increased mental concentration. It is a fact that
examinations are a bigger boost to
business than to the students' spirits.
Until then the students will continue to gulp down soup at the alarming rate of ninety bowls per day!
I'm Haunting
Says Shadow To
Jean McDiarmid
"Miss Fortune, alntcher con-
shenet troubUn' yet"
"Oh, Misi Fortune, what
about ya conshence?"
"Alatcha gotta conshence,
Miss FortuneT"
These anonymous notes a la
Harold Teen have been floating Into tht "MY1 and Mac's"
section of the women's letter
rack, and tht secretary of Arts
'88 is the object of their venom.
,In other words, Jean McDiarmid is having whatever
conscience tht posestes wracked by those anonymous notes,
which art caused by htr having
"cooked" a certain draw In tht
senior class ceremony.
in an interview to tht press,
Mka McDiarmid stated that she
"wUl never repent" This was
on Wednesday of last weak,
"I did this for the kick I got
out of it, and I don't care who
knows," she declared with considerable emphasis.
A few days later the press obtained a second interview fsom
Miss McDiarmid, and a vtry
different woman she appeared.
2% was wan and pale and bar
lift had lost Its vitality. She was
i a changed woman.
"They're haunting mt, those
horrible notes," she sobbed, trying to hide her nervousness behind a handkerchief 2x8. "I
wish I had never been elected
Secretary of Arts'33," she wailed with common female impetuosity.
To the writer of the anonymous notes, we would say that
he or she has done a noble
deed, but now that Jean's nerve
has broken before their terrific onslaught, we suggest that
you cease.
Unemployed   Militia
Established In
Varsity Area
Three hundred unemployed militia
men were established this morning
in the University Endowment Lands
Are* Under the direction of Army
Officers, a small village of tents has
been erected to accomodate the soldiers. The encampment is located near
the corner of ChanceUor Boulevard
and Eighth Avenue.
The programme for the winter will
be mairdy road-building and grading
in the University section of West Point
The project has been arranged
through the cooperation of local militia and the Provincial Government
The reason for selecting only military
men for the camp, according to authorities, is that the camp wiU be
under miUtary discipline and wiU be
a means of keeping the non-permanent
militia together.
The work of these 300 men should
do a great deal in improving the appearance of University lands.

The Ubyssey is In receipt of
a most unusual letter from Mr.
Frank J. Edwards of "Tht

of the University of Alberta.
It seems that Mr. Edwards
wants a "cut" — photograph,
picture, tin-type, of t student

It further seems that this
mysterious Mr. Henderson hat
at tomt timt or tht other attended the University of British

the latter, ht is a basketball
player of tomt repute*
"The Gateway" it desirous of
giving publicity to this Henderson, now working for a degree
of Bachelor of Education at tht

And so we pose the question—
has anybody here heard of a

conctaling cognomen ef "Poppa"?

Poppy Day Slated
For Next Friday
Next Friday, November 4, another
U.B.C. tradition wUl be commemorated when a group of Freshettes, selected by the Womens' Undergraduate
Society! wUl sell poppies in aid of
the Returned Soldiers.
The Freshettes wUl accept any
price over ten cents for the flowers
and are confident that the .students
wiU ''come through" in memory of
those Over There.
Resolved "That the British Empire
must follow the Moscow road" promises to be an interesting and Uve
topic for thc debate scheduled for
November 22 at which the British
team will meet U. B. C.(
The Parliamentary Forum is putting
up Neil Perry and Vic Dryer to uphold the affirmative for Varsity.
Strong opposition is expected from
the visiting team which is made up of
graduates, one from Edinburgh University and the other from Wales.
The home team has the privilege
of defining what is meant by the system of state controlled industry which
Russia has developed.
They will stress the possibilities of
equal opportunities under government
controlled Industries. Some reasons
will be detailed why the British Empire should not continue under its
present system in the existing economic conditions.
The scene of the debate has.not
yet been decided upon but it wUl
probably take place in the Vancouver

At Georgia
The soft swish of silken gowns
mixed with the quiet scraping of
shoes on a polished floor as Arts '33
held their class party in the Aztec
Room, Hotel Georgia, Friday evening.
Despite Council's edict of informality, dinner jackets and long gloves
predominated as the staid seniors
cast aside their traditional gloom and
made merry to the tunes of Harold
King's Orchestra.
Dainty sandwiches and cakes were
served in the supper interval in the
York and Patrician rooms. Dean
Buchanan usurped the pourer's honors In the Patrician room, pouring
out the liquid refreshment in truly
professional style.
After the close of the festivities at
the Georgia, thirty or forty couples
invaded the Journalists' Cabaret
where the fun was fast and furious.
Patrons for the class party were
Dean and Mrs. Buchanan, Dean M.
L. Bollert, Dr. W. A. Carrothers, and
Professor Cook.
U.B.C. freshmen are pecuUarly free
from Athlete's Foot! The recently
concluded health examinations reveal
that only 17 out of 290 freshmen examined suffer from Absorbine Junior's pet abomination. Incldently,
student opinion is that A.J. is about
useless a curative as Hecate's
concoction of toes of newts and lips
of tartars, et al. But if this has* disillusioned you remember the Health
Authorities have discovered that sodium thlosulphate solution does the
At tests In a Californian University,
53 percent were found to have the
notorious parasite adhering to their
extreme nether portions. This started the U.B.C. investigations of men
and women.    (Tht number of wo
men with tht infection was 0, but
confession appears to have been arbitrary for them.)
In an interview to the Ubyssey,
Mrs. Lucas, of the University Health
Service. suppUed the above, information. The infection, she stated, was
caused through treading on floors
of bathrooms, etc., barefoot.
Speaking of infection, Mrs. Lucas
repudiated statements appearing recently ln a city paper concerning
kissing promiscuously. She denied
having stated that kissing was harmless, or that handshakes were dangerous. Any human contact was liable to cause infection, including
kissing, she explained, only it can
not be checked even by the presence
of a chaperon.

On Locust Plagues
Research in the interior of the province during the past few summers
has enabled the U. B. C. Entymolo-
gical Department to prevent a very
serious locust plague, it was learned by the members of the Vancouver
Institute. Saturday night.
Prof. G. J. Spencer of the department of zoology traced the history of
locusts, showed their occurence and
discussed their habits and the means
of their extermination. He told of their
mode of breeding, the great masses
of eggs which each locust lays, and

No Music Makes
Pep Meet Flop
The Pep Meeting ln the Auditorium
at noon on Friday did not hesitate
to voice its feelings when the orchestra was. reported missing. This outburst seemed to exhaust the audience,
however, and Uttle enthusiasm could
be aroused, in spite of the efforts of
Lyle Stewart and his assltants. Apart
from a chorus of "coo-coo' and Low-
dah!" from the peanut gallery the
yeUs struck a happy medium between
a whisper and a conversational buzz|
A sosne decorated with two palm
trees and one cheer leader in a straw
hat aroused considerable interest and
this opportunity was taken to intro-
dure a new basketball yeU.
Songs were more popular and the
assembly sang with real spirit. The
"Hulabaloo" was perfect except for j
a variation in the third line of the
chorus, probably due to a seam In
the screen, or a mistiness in the lantern slide. "Hail to the Gold and
Blue" has become more familiar, and
was a decided success.

Smebody has pulled a boner. All arrangements were made
for a Canadian Rugby pep meeting last Friday and when the students were all seated there was found to be no orchestra. Investigation revealed the fact that neither Lyle Stewart or
Gordon Hilker, of the Pep Club, were responsible for the failure of the performers to appear.   „
Obviously somebody was. Out of courtesy his name will
not be mentioned. It appears, however, that he was to make
all arrangements with the cooperation of the Pep Club. Plana
were drawn up. application for the auditorium was made and
passed, announcement was made in the Ubyssey, and the students turned up.
Pep meetings in the good old days were something to rave
about. During the last few years they have steadily depreciated both in talent and presentation. And now comes the last
straw. A pep meeting which is an absolute flop. The person
who organized, or promised to organize, the recent fiasco, should
make some acknowledgement of his blame.
It appears that he left the University at eleven o'clock and
went to a show at one of the downtown theatres, not returning
till two in the afternoon. College spirit, if it produces this type
of flibbertigibbet, is not wanted at U.B.C.
S. O. S. — ECHO, O.K.!
In the last issue of the Ubyssey there appears a news item
concerning the voluntary help given by students and others,
which has made it possible to keep the efficiency of the Library
up to its previous standard.
The Ubyssey wishes to point out to the student body if it
were not for the altruistic efforts of these eighteen individuals,
the usefulness of the institution would be materially lessened.
Some recognition should be made through the official governing body of the Alma Mater Society.
We are tempted to say that this student effort heralds the
dawn of a new university spirit. Eighteen members of the Alma
Mater Society, either active or honorary are giving their own
valuable time with the object of keeping un the good name and
efficiency of the university which has done so much for them.
Heretofore students have confined their attempts at "college
spirit" to cheering teams, and except in the cases of the various
campaigns which have been carried out with varying success,
have paid no attention to .the university as such.
The President, the Library Committee, and Mr. Ridington
and his staff have all expressed their appreciation, and now
it is up to the students to make some formal acknowledgement
to those who have put the university before self.
(Continued from Page One)
the rapidity with which they multiply.
The name, "locusts" is applied to a
great swarm of grasshoppers. These
breed In favorable places such as
fields of stubble and after attaining
very large numbers, for some unknown reason start to swarm. Their
starving multitudes eat everything
in the way, grain, leaves, bark off
trees, paint, curtains, bedding and
even the waU-paper off the waUs in
the houses. When swarming they are
practically Impossible to klU and then
only at great cost. The U. B. C. staff
has, however, discovered some much
cheaper and better methods than are
now used.
During 1931, locusts over-ran 30,600
square miles of farming lands In the
middle-west of the U. S. A., and did
unaccountable damage. In the Argentine, the land is denuded yearly
and blighted by the pests, principally due to. the lack of the knowledge
of locust control. In Africa and Asia,
there are great waste tracts of ground
where the locust breeds and periodically destroy everything. In fact, they
occur In such numbers that the natives
must use them for food. EconomicaUy
they are of the greatest importance,
costing B. C. nearly 860,000 in one year
alone. They swarm here once every
seven years.
Students are reminded that these
lectures are free. The subjects are
chosen for their general Interest and
the speakers for their knowledge and

Occasional Observations
Tips On How To Be A
Successful Unemployed
Dr. Carrothers must be finding it heavy sledding already
on his Homeless Men Relief
Committee. A news note reports that the very day the
committee was named the organized unemployed took the
matter in hand with characteristic vim and firmness, submitting a detailed questionnaire on just what arrangements were being made for
their benefit; whether tobacco
and food were to be provided
in the camps; in what quantities; whether there was to be
registration; if so, for what purpose; and so on.
The unemployed committee
also scored the relief commissioners rather heavily for not
replying to their questionnaire
on more decorous note-paper,
and in general made it clearly
understood that they, the unemployed, were going to stand
no nonsense whatever.
What an example for students in the various economics
courses! Why not a questionnaire submitted to the department asking whether cigarettes
and chewing gum are to be distributed in lectures, and in
what quantities; demanding the
exact purpose of registration;
and criticizing the method of
note-giving and in particular
the examinations set in those
What a sinecure we have all
been overlooking! It needed the
courageous example of the
other unemployed to give us
our lead. But probably even
now we shall be too careless of
our rights as Unemployed, to
do anything about it. We shall
continue greedily to take notes
given to us in any kind of style,
in our spiritless fashion, to plug
for exams in the same old way,
and even—ye Gods!—possibly
manifest a little gratitude to the
professors who teach in, and
the government that supports,
this institution.
Not so our enlightened brethren down town. They know
what's coming to them as dependents of the province, and
by gum, they're out to get it.

I notice my crumby colleague, the College Bred across
the way, is stealing my stuff,
and—worse and worse—doing
it better.. I have warned him
off the field of versification, but
he appears unawed by my
threats. It reminds me of the
old days when "Spirit Rap-
pings" used to flagellate "Fun
and Fundamentals." This column has a long line of distinguished predecessors.
On Columns and Columns
"F. & F." flourished two
years ago, in the regime of Ronald Grantham, as did R.A.P.'s
"Rappings." The former professed not to be a column at
all, as indeed it often proved itself, in merit if not in content.
It was an over-flow from the
Literary" Department, but at
times emerged from the domains of Euterpe to go Muck
and worse, and to get squelch-
ingly reproved by the brilliant
psychist on the third page.
These rather spasmodic ventures were succeeded the next
year by what proved to many
the most worth-while feature of
the whole paper. The erstwhile
editor-in-chief, now a sedate
education student, seized his
pen and puffed his pipe, and
produced a column from their
inspiration. With a regularity
which was balm to the heart of
the make-up staff, he turned in

proving unreadable.
This year, however, there is
a lamentable dearth of ex-
Pubsters or others suitably
qualified for the job of Kampus
Kolyumist. Consequently arose
"O. O." which started out conscientiously to live up to its
name and not be a column at
all. And here it is preparing to
become, in spite of its harassed
author, a light-headed successor to its grave and erudite
fore-bears. And people are beginning to come up to me and
say, "Here's a good idea for you

The Darkened library
It is fine to know that the internal workings of our Library
are not to be disrupted by the
effects of the cut. One wishes
sorrowfully that its external
impressiveness could be preserved as fully. I am referring
to the darkness in which it is
now shrouded at the fall of
dusk. It used to be one of the
loveliest pictures I have ever
seen, its quaintly illuminated
reflection glowing in the pool.
Only once have I seen the
beautiful little building more
magical than it used to seem
under the stars. That was one
day when light mist was blowing in from the Sound. The sky
behind was dazzingly blue, and
the Library was wreathed in
cloud wreaths dazzlingly white;
just lightly tangled in those
thin, snowy wisps.

The Editor, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Totems are one of the many things
which help to build up the so-said
deficient tradition in U.B.C. They
are, on the other hand, one of the
very few things that are now left.
The faculty balls and the Senior
Ball are among the many traditional
phases of University life that have
been cut out.
I read with interest in last Tuesday's Ubyssey of the dollar and a
quarter I have been paying annually
for Totems for the last four years.
This I have begrudged no one. As
for the Faculty Balls, I have given
them my share of patronage.
In this, my fifth year, I am deprived of the Senior BaU, to which I
had been looking forward since my
Freshman days. For the sake of
tradition, and because I have already
paid five doUars for it, I want at
least a Totem next Spring.
Why not use some of our 88,900
surplus to keep up a Uttle of the
young tradition by again publishing
the good old Totom.->-8oknce Senior.

The Knight
When Love Was Born
"Gather round, chUdren dear," said
Grandma ZUch to the assorted young
Zilches one winter eve, "and if Es-
merelda wUl kindly sit off the most
comfortable chair and give it to her
poor old grandmother, I'U read you
a story what I wrote for my university paper when I was a mere
sUp of a girl." The young ZUches
watched awe-struck while grandma
blew smoke rings around the fire-
dogs and reminisced of the good old
days back in Pitchfork Prairies. "Ah!
Tht good old Ubeezeel" she mused
musily while the family dog chewed
her boot-laces unnoticed. "WeU, here
it is."
"Once upon a time there was a
mediaeval knight which lived hi a
mediaeval castle madt out of pebbles and such, with bars on the windows and looking sort of Uke a Jail
but really so enemies'couldn't get in
and once they got hi couldn't get
out WeU, he Uved hi his castle all
year round with his vassals, which
are things people used to keep
around in those days on account of
coming in vary handy' if you wanted
your armour polished or anything
Uke that. Well, this knight was a
very nice knight except for being a
Utile absent-minded at times, and
often forgot to clip his moustache so
that it dipped into the barley soup
and tiie slurping was rather bad, but
the vassals didn't dare say anything,
because ht might fly into a ragt,
being, a very good flyer, and throw
them to the dogs, this being rather
hard on the dogs too on account of
the vassals didn't always teste so
Every morning this mediaeval
knight used to ride out on his charger hi his armour and feather to look
for beautiful damsels hi distress, this
being, very hard, the damsels in that
part of the country not being such
a much as to looks and never getting
into distress anyway.
One Wednesday morning this
knigh,t got very angry. Because of
his absent mind he had forgotten to
go to bed Monday night and thinking it was still Tuesday had missed
the porridge for breakfast, on account
of it being the fondest thing he was
of. This Wednesday morning he
came into the room where the vassal
i had laid his armour all oiled and
ready on the bed and started to put
It on very peevish, muttering about
feeling like he was putting on the
kitchen stove or something. He said
so many bad words like blow and
bother and others that at last the
vassal said my Uege you would go
and get cheap second-hand armour
so don't blame me he said and the
knight feeling Very put out Indeed
threw the vassal out the window to
the dogs, but the dogs not being
around just then he said go and
get someone to lock you In the tower
until the dogs' come back from chasing that rat under the front steps
and then they can eat you." At this
point grandma stooped to pick up
four stitches she had dropped on the
floor and continued.
"With that he rode forth and
spent a very unsuccessful day hunting for damsels ln distress. On his
way home thinking my I do get exasperated with the damsels around
here, he saw a Uttle girl, and not so
very little at that crying under a
mulberry tree and she was very
pretty although clad entirely in rags
from head to feet and bare feet at
that, and she was sobbing alack my
favorite father being thrown to those
nasty dop, and the knight said
what's the matter wench?" Grandma
stopped and said severely—"Esmerel-
da, will you please inform that cat
that the ladders on my best chiffon
socks is no place to sharpen her
"So the damsel said o dear a horrid
knight Is going to throw my father
to the dogs, and the knight was
moved to compunction and said I
must be the knight but I'm really
not so horrid as that and you're not
so hard to look at yourself wench so
if you care to marry me I'll let your
father go and give the dogs some
stoned wheat thins Instead. So he
took the girl home and let the vassal out of the tower and said you'd
better not tell anyone in case they
should think I am not a man of iron
"WeU what should happen that
evening when the knight was leaning out of his castle window he
heard two voices, one the damsel's
and the other the vassal's and the
vassal spokt thus:
"WeU, you're a pretty fast worker
Mame so how much do I owe you
for the job?" and the damsel replied
"Now  you  mention  it,  I'm not  so
'"The time has come,'" the Walrus said." Yes, ladeez an'
gennelmen, the Muck Editor feels very much at the height of
something or other. A milestone has been reached in the history of Page Three. After fifteen years of striving against
heavy odds, we have at last managed to snaffle a contributor.
In fact, four of them! The Muck Page has articles by five people!
Think of that, you former Muck Editors, and grind your teeth
in envy!
We hear occasionally of people who strenuously object to
Muck. We hate to think that this is because they have no
humour in them. "Pfui, tripe, onions and balderdash," we hear
them exclaim, "neither is there any humour on the Muck Page."
Well, if them's your sentiments, come to this office and do
it yourself. We are sure that there are lots more Muck writers
among those present.

Varsity cut down X-King George's lead in the Tisdall Cup
series to only one point when they handed them a 7-0 trimming
at the Brockton Point oval, Saturday afternoon.
Saturday's game was the moat important one of the series,
as a win for X-King Oeorge meant a five-point lead over any
other team in the league, an advantage almost impossible to
played a fast and strenuous gamt
against tough opposition, featuring
throughout tht contest, exhibitions of
fine tackling and brilliant forward
for Vanity Art and Ken Mercer,
Cleveland and Leggat, were prominent as backs whilt Doug Brown,
Ruttan and Senkler starred among
the forwards. Humphries, Ross and
Rowan looked good for the Kings.
Flay Starts Fast
Flay was off to a fast start with
Varsity forcing the heavy Ex-King
George squad weU back into their
own territory, and by open play,
good runs and effective tackling
maintained this position. MitcheU,
during the first ten minutes of play,
got a penalty kick but faUed to put
it over. However, thia seemed to
stir the opposing serum into action
and heavy advances hi yardage were
effected, but any attempts at scoring were weU guarded.
The Ex-Kings used their weight
to good advantage in a steady dribbling attack which nearly resulted in
a score, but for the brillant wing
three quarter man, Leggat, who
snapped the ball and went over for
a safety touch. At the scrum down
on the 5-yard line, the King's tried
to crash the line but were unable
to do so, then Rowan, with two of
his men made an attempt to run
around llneslde, but was held within five yards of the line, just as the
whistle finished the half.
Varsity Scores Twice
Tht students, handling nicely,
started the second period by rushing
the Ex-King Oeorge boys back to-
their two bit line. Ken Mercer attempted a nice kick from the twenty
yard line, but was unsuccessful. A

Game 10-1
Playing their last gamt of the year,
Doctor Burke's Blue and Oold aggregation of Big Four gridders held
the championship Meraloma crew to
a 10-1 score at Athletic Park last
Saturday afternoon.
The Varsity crew played sixty minutes of bang-up football, and caused
many grey hairs In the Meraloma
camp. With the count 1-0 against
them at the end of the first quarter,
the Orange and Black tightened up
to take a 3-1 lead at half time. Two
more deadline kicks and a doubtful
touchdown in the second half put
the game on ice for Meralomas.
Hedreen for Varsity played a great
game, both on offensive and defensive
play. His long punts were a feature
of the day, and time and again relieved his team from dangerous positions.
The rest of the U. B. C. squad
worked smoothly and efficiently and
held the Meraloma machine three
times right on their very goal line.
In the first canto Meralomas
played more Uke rookies than champions, and Varsity outclassed them ln

by a 8-aU store.
In the first half, the Juniors tallied

second stanza the Seniors hit their
stride, and the goal, and tied the >
score through a solo effort by Rod
McLeod. Not content with this the
Seniors persuaded Davt Todd to let

second tally. However, tht rest of
the '84 men were not so generous,
and rushed back to score the tying
goal with a sizzling shot Both defences held for the remaining time,
and the Seniors were held to a draw.

the bar for the first three points.
Mercer Scores Field Goal
Showing some fine work, the Varsity forwards dribbled the ball within five yards of the Une, and as
U.B.C. continued to press, Ken Mercer made a neat field goal.
From this point the Black and
Green picked up again and had it
not been for Varsity's smashing tackling would have scored. Rowan
late in the game secured and passed
to Sheppard, who went over, but
play was caUed, due to the fact that
Rowan had been forced on the wing.

(Plensc  turn   to  Page  Two)
bles robbed them from touchdowns
and brought in only two points on
rouges. tSewart kicked to the deadline late in the period to make the
half tune score 3-1.
The only thrill of the third quarter
waa the sensational eighty-yard run
by Don Stewart of Meralomas. Don
took the ball on his own ten yard
line and got away on a cut-back
through the right side, and ran to
Varsity's 10-yard line before being
forced out by Henderson. Within scoring distance again, the Clubbers
failed to cross the line and made
only one marker.
It was in the fourth quarter that
the only touch of the game wa*
scored. After a march down the
field Meralomas were on Varsity's
1-yard line, with third down and 1
yard to go. Lawrence, a husky Kitsilano middle, was given the ball,
and to aU appearances was stopped
cold. The touch was awarded, however, but was not converted.
The U.B.C. boys flUed the air with
passes in the last period in a last
desperate effort to score, but it just
didn't happen. Niblo's educated toe
booted the ball over the deadline for
the last point ot the game.
Hedreen's kicking and passing
made him the pick of the Varsity
line-up. while Stewart and Niblo get
the call for Meralomas.

U.B.C. Track Club
Accepts Records
In the meeting of the U.B.C. Track
Club held on Friday, the two new
Varsity track and field records were
formally ratified. This includes Harold Wright's mark for the 220-yard
dash, made in the Invitation meet
of the 15th of October, and Haddon
Agnewds discuss record in the annual
Varsity-Frosh meet of the 12th.
Wright, star sprinter of the Canadian Olympic team, smashed the
record jointly held by Bobbie Gaul,
and Prof. Harry Warren, when he
steamed the distance two weeks ago
in 23:1-5 seconds. Haddon Agnew's
record however, was even more notable, as he upset not only Varsity's
nine-year old mark, but also established a new Western Inter-CoUegiate
distance to shoot at. His record-
breaking toss went 124 feet and 8
Doc. Burke's "Blue and Gold"
squad trounced the Meraloma gridders to the tune of 6-3 In their fourth
Senior City Canadian Rugby game
of the season at Douglas Park, Sat-
ruday afternoon.
The deciding issue of the game
came in the second quarter, when
Dick Bower of the Varsity aggregation intercepted a forward pass in
the shadow of his own goal-posts,
and outran the entire opposition to
cross the Meraloma Une for 5 points.
The U. B. C. found themselves at
the wrong end of the count in the
first quarter, when the KltsUano
club kicked to the deadline for 1
The second period proved to be
the most spectacular of the game,
when Bower intercepted a forward
pass on his own 10-yard line
and ran 90 yards for a touchdown,
which went unconverted. The Kitsilano club scored their other 2
points of the game by kicks to the
Canto the third saw the addition of

Wednesday Night
Coach Allen's Senior "A" basket squad had no difficulty in
defeating the Meraloma entry in a Burrard League encounter
Saturday night at'the V. A. C. Gymnasium by a 40-11 score.
With the whole team playing a good defensive game, and Osborne and Campbell in a scoring mood, the outcome waa never
in doubt.
Osborne opened the score soon after the start with a foui
shot, but Meralomas went ahead for the only time of the pw
with foul shots by Thompson and H. Clark. Nicholson tied this
up with another foul, and then Cy. Lee dropped in a basket to

In a fast game at Cambie Street
on Saturday, Varsity Senior Soccermen stepped over Cowan-Dodson into fourth place by defeating the
Bakers 2-1. Cowan-Dodson held a
1-0 lead at half-time, but Munday
scored two goals In the second half
to give Varsity the game.
Varsity kicked off against a lpw
sun which bothered the boys badly
through most of the first half. As
a result, their ball control suffered,
and they were badly off color until
just before the half ended. However, from that point on, their game
Improved and they pressed throughout most of the second half.
Cowan-Dodson obtained the first
goal of the game midway through
the first stanza. Frattinger dived for
a hard shot, and pushed the ball
•gainst the post. It rebounded on
to the line, and McGill cleared at the
expense of a corner. From the place
kick, Cowan, the Bakers' centre-
forward, headed into the goal mouth
and although Legg kicked the ball
over the bar, the referee rightly gave
a goal.
During the remainder of the period
play was evenly divided, but Varsity
spoiled many chances by carelessness
with then- passes. The combination
of the Blue and Gold squad was
much below its usual standard. During the last ten minutes of the half,
Varsity picked up considerably, and
were pressing the Cowan-Dodson defence when the period ended.
Manning was forced to drop out
of the right half position at half
time, Buss Stewart dropping back
from right wing to takt his place.
Hughie Smith took over the right
wing position.
M Play Better in Second Half
Flay was of a much higher standard after the interval, with Varsity
playing a nice combination game.
Cowan-Dodson were playing a rough
type of game, and were attempting
to barge through by sheer weight,
but found the Varsity defence too
steady for them. Laurie Todd was
playing a splendid game on the Blue
and Oold forward line, and engineered a number of fine passing attacks, while the half line was keeping up with the play better and
were feeding their wing men much
more effectively.
Finally, Smith took a pass on the
wing, and headed to Laurie Todd,
who put Otle Munday through for
the first Varsity goal. The centre-
forward gave the goalie no chance
with his shot.
Shortly after this, Costain and the
Cowan-Dodson left winger attempted
to kick the ball at the same time,
and the Varsity half received a in-
ury to his ankle, but managed to
continue, although more or less of
a pasesnger from then on.
Ten minutes from the err" -* *he
game, Smith took the ball down ine
wing, tricked the back ,and put Munday through with a lovely pass. Munday made no mistake, and drove the
ball through for his own and Varsity's second goal. Although the College squad worked through to several more fine openings, they did
not succeed in scoring again, and the
game ended with the score 2-1 for

HUUtr's foul shot was the only
seort for several minutes, dimng
which both teams were handling tht
baU rather carelessly. Tnen Osborne
secured under his own basket and
dribbled tht length of tht floor to
drop in a pretty basket. Ht repeated
a minute later titer Hillitr had
scored on a foul, and Meralomas
caUtd timt out.
CampbtU In Porn
After the rest CampbeU obtained
/the first of a series of beautiful bas*
kets. Osborne was pulling down the
rebounds in fine style, but for a few
minutes Varsity's attacks failed to
bring points. Then Thompson dropped
the bail through the hoop for the
first and last Meraloma field goal of
the first half. CampbeU quickly regained this when he broke for another pretty basket,'and Osborne followed with a score on a pass from
Varsity's second string line now
came in, Bardsley replacing Nicholson, and Tervo, Lee, with Campbell
going to centre. Just before half
time, Wright dropped in a foul, and
Bardsley a basket to bring the score
to 17 to 6 at the Interval.
CampbeU started the second session
with two sensational scores, while
the Meraloma squad were confined to
long shots. Following this Campbell
went through for the prettiest score
of the game, shooting with his back
to the basket. Osborne followed with
two fouls to give the Blue and Gold
a 19 point lead. Qulnn reduced this
just as Coach Allen sent ln Douglas
for Campbell, Wright going to centre and Tervo to guard.
Douglas Shows WtU
Young scored another Meraloma
basket but Douglas replied with a
score for Varsity. After Young had
dropped In another Black and Orange
score, Matthison replaced Bardsley on
the Varsity forward Une. for several minutes there was no further
scoring. Then "Hooker" Wright obtained a basket and a foul, and H.
Clark scored for the Clubmen. Douglas scored on a pretty effort Just as
the regular front line returned to the
floor, Campbell replacing Wright,
Nicholson taking the place of Douglas and Lee going in for Tervo.
The change speeded the game up
immediately and Matthison, CampbeU and Osborne quickly scored
beautiful baskets. H. Clark repUed
with a basket for Meralomas, and
shortly after. Douglas went In for
Campbell and Wright for Osborne.
Nicholson scored on two foul shots
and H. Clark obtained third basket
of the half as the final whistle went.

in a closely fought game Thursday,
October 27, at Varsity. An unfortunate accident occured when three
of the West End team, apparently
taking a short-cut. blundered into
the famous Lily Pond thereby considerably    dampening   their    vidour.

played its first game against U.B.C.
the second team, on Saturday. The

to make a single tally. Varsity attacked from the first whistle and
play was confined during the early
stages of the game to the U.B.C.

excellent game and it was only by
their good work that Varaity was
prevented from incieawrng the score.
