Tht attention of postage stamp collectors, studtnts of Canadian History,
and others, is drawn to the endeavor
that is being made by tht University
to gather together a collection of the
postage stamps of Canada and the
early British North American Colonies. A number of interested stamp
enthusiasts have made valuable additions, recently, to the original
nucleus which waa assembled about
four years ago and already quite a
good collection has been madt.

Players' Club Meeting, Arts
Almost in the nature of a "day off"
was tht meeting of tht Royal Astronomical Society, Vancouver centre,
m Science 900, Tuesday, whtn Dr.
Davidson of tht department of physics, assuming the rolt of showman,
aided by two Janttrns and a lint of
unbroken talk to match any "patter," discoursed in what ho claimed
to be an unreeordablt fashion upon
Light and Color. At tht last meeting the Society grappled with Einstein and Relativity, and now in relaxation the group of scientists—some
eighty were present—almost allowed
the sensuous beauty of the spectrum
to move them to other than intellectual applause.
Dr. Davidson cleared the field for
action by plunging tht hall into
darkness. "Please make your startled or excited ejaculations now," he
said tersely, "for we will spend most
of our tune in darkness."
One of the chief attractions for the
audience was a special glass used in
spot-lights whereby a heroine can
become rosier and rosier with heroism or a villain greener and greener
with villainy. Tht secret is per-
mtd by tutting out undesirable
bands in tht spectrum, such as (in
the former cast) yellow and green,
lights casting a shadow of doubt
upon the chastity of the carmine
cheek. Dr. Davidson claimed in tht
light of the latter cast: "There Is
nothing but yellow In my make-up."
He started with a number of demonstrations showing intensities of
light, reflected light and color, and
finally spectri projected on a screen.
The position of tiie recondite infra
red and ultra violet rays were determined and then* mysteries unravelled.
Proceeding the address Mr. Teasdel
gave a brief summary of the sky
sights for the month.

Tottm Costs
"11500 is the net loss allowed for
tht Totem on the Council budget this
year," stated BiU Whimster, president of the Council, "and this amount
can not be exceeded."
St. John Madeley outlined a plan to
reduce expenditures on the Annual.
In 1932, 1000 copies of the Totem
were  printed  while  only 420  were
Is economic exploitation of tht
sick doomed? To what extent, If
any, should health services ln Canada be socialised? Is Canada ready
for so-called "State MdeMneT" H
so, how should it be financed? A
discussion of the above, "Vital Social Economist," will take place next
Saturday evening by Dr. G. M. Weir
before the Vancouver Institute, to
which the public art invited. Information used in the discussion of
the above and similar problems has
been obtained from direct sources
during the course of a recent survey
of health conditions in Canada.
Another item to be considered Is
tht present status of teachers' salaries in B. C. and of so-called "fret"
education In leading civilised communities. Ananysls of one good feature, implied rather than directly
stated hi the educational section of
tht Kidd Report will also be attempted.
There will

S. on Monday in Arts
Last year's actual expenditure on
the Totem was:
Photography and engraving
Printing     i,goo
This year it is hoped to be able to
cut it down to:
Photography and engraving .... $ 800
Covers         200
Printing      i goo
Allowing for 350 salts at $1.50 apiece
and $350 worth of advertisements, tht
net loss on the Totem would only bt
1*33 Plans
The graduating section will now
contain 45 pages, there will be ten
write ups to each page instead of
seven. The frontispiece, faculty, etc.,
will take up 10 pages, Class write-ups
9 pages, Student Council and Publications Board 5 pages. Tht L. S. E.
will havt three write-ups per page
except the Players Club and the Musical Society which will be given a
page each.
If a better price on engraving can
be obtained it may be possible to include small pictures of tht club presidents.
In the Athletic Section the first
teams of the major sports will havt
half a page and a half page picture
each. Other sports will take up S
pages. Thtrt will bt 9 pages of advertising and 3 pages of scrap. If
more advertising ia obtained an extra
page of scrap will be allowed for
every two extra pages of advertising.
Further reduction of expenditure
will be possible by using smaller
type, decreasing margins and having
a thinner cover.
The date of publication can not be
later than March 1st. This necessitates that all pictures be in by January 15, giving the engravers one
month to make the plates. All printing matter must be in by January 30.
Caution Money Again
Two more weeks will be allowed to
deposit caution money waivers of $1.
These waivers wttl bt redeemed when
tht Totem is bought. Only the necessary numbers of copies will bt printed
and It will be impossible for anyone
who dots not make a deposit to buy
a Totem.
The Council is anxious to publish a
Totem but has no intention of suffering a loss and haa the power to suspend the publication if tht required
amount of deposits have not been
received by November 24.

Despite the fact that the Alma Mater Meeting of Wednesday, theoretically approved the plan for the Totem on the basis
of a net logs of $1475, the publication of the annual ia not definitely assured yet.
It is necessary to have an assured income, and that ia the
reason why the caution money waivers were made acceptable.
There ig little doubt in the minds of the embryonic Totem staff
that three hundred and fifty galea will be made next year, yet
nevertheless it ig imperative that something more definite than
an intelligent guess be the basis of a budget.
In case there should be any doubt about the uae of the
waivers, we will explain once again, how they are to be used.
Every student who intends to buy a Totem next spring, must
either pay a deposit of one dollar by November, 25 or aign the
caution money waiver provided at the Accountant's office. The
waivers are in lieu of a cash deposit. They must be redeemed
by cash however, either at the time of purchase of the annual,
or gome time previous.
On behalf of the Totem staff, the Ubyssey wishes to ask all
executives, and particularly the members of the graduating
classes for their heartiest co-operation in the matter of pictures
and write-ups. Plans and times for picture sittings will be announced as soon as contracts are awarded.

Students at this university are becoming more and more
forced to rely upon their own resources. We are beginning to
realize what it is to have to live up to our motto, Tuem Est.
The faculty, in its present restricted position, is no longer able
to serve up pre-digested spoon-fed education to suit every individual. Hard work and personal effort by the student must
accompany every lecture.
A truly sincere effort is being made by the faculty, not
only to keep this university at the high level it has attained
through years of past effort, but also to prepare the ground for
even higher accomplishments in the future. Genuine hard
work and co-operation on the part of the students can only
make this possible.
Perhaps freshles and sophs need not be reminded of the
proximity of examinations. However, the average student is
too much inclined to think that "sufficient unto the day is the
evil thereof." Sincere warning has been made by the faculty
this year that exams are going to be devastating. The university
wants no slackers in 1933. In the next few years, results must
be shown to the people of British Columbia if our grant is to
be Increased or even maintained at its present level. The
drones will have to go.

Installation of electric wiring has

The materials necessary for the

that the men may be kept aa contented as possible under the circumstances
and in good health and spirits.
Gifts of magazines or books will bt

letter to the University on behalf of
the graduates and former students of
the Unlverdty of British Columbia
who are now living in the vicinity
of San Francisco.
Last Saturday night, November S,
we gathered together at the States
Hot Brau in San Francisco for a reunion dinner and dance. Notices
were sent to as many of tho former
students of the U. B. C. as were
known, and we were very pleased
to have forty persons at our reunion.
We had severd guests, three of
whom are graduates of the Unlverdty of Saskatchewan, one of the
University of Dalhousie, one of the
Unlverdty of Southern California and
several from the University of California. Dr. Asmundsen of the Agriculture Department of the Unlverdty of British Columbia was present.
We were very sorry that Dr. T.
Boggs, now of Stanford, could not
be present.
Mr. Harold Offord very ably carried off the duty of toast master. The
toasts were as follows:
To the King, Harold Offord.
To tht University, Ted Morrison,
response, Joseph Denham.
To the Alumni, Alan Buchanan, response, Mary Carter.
After the dinner the evening was
spent in songs and yells and dancing. Many old University songs were
revived hi our memories.     It was
fortunate that we had a private
dining-room because the rafters certainly rang when we started on such
songs as "My Girl's A Hullabaloo"
and "Mr. Noah."
Since we were unable to attend
Homecoming at the University this
was our substitute and it was a
grand one. It has now become a yearly affair.
We dl join ln sending our best
wishes for the success of the Unlverdty, and we are behind lt ln all
its endeavors.
As was said in ont of the toasts,
"The Unlverdty has lost quite a
number of feathers from Its hat, we
don't want it to lost its hat," at
which remark someone piped up,
"nor It's shirt." That is putting it
bluntly, but we mean every word of
Yours sincerely,

Dean Bollert Talkes
To S.C.M. On Drama
(Continued from Page One)
Boucicault's "London Assurance",
1841, of the sentimental type burlesqued by "Alice-Sit-by-*he-Fire",,
given here lad Christmas. Dean Bollert described this as "a play without ideas but with a clever mention
of incidents."
The final production was from the
pen of "the patron saint of the festival," Bernard Shaw. "Too True to be
Good," received at Malvern Its English premiere, although It had previously been shown in Boston and Poland. The play will be presented hi
Vancouver this season. "Too True to
be Good," Dean Bollert stated, departs from all the rules which have
governed modern writers, yet the
spirit of the time—unrest, uncertainty and a realization of failure are
well depicted by the dramatist.

The Varsity farm is making progress
in spite of the depression. Mr. John
'Young, who has since the fird of
April been running the department
of Dairy Cattle and Tillable Land,
states that he has had a very successful summer. He has found a
market ln the University Area for
all his dairy products, potatoes, etc.,
as well as filling his contract to grow
sufficient feed, etc., for a herd of dairy
cattle, approximating forty head. The
majority of these cattle, says Mr.
Young, are pure bred Ayrshlres selected in Scotland by Professor King.
The rest of the herd Is pure bred
Part of the dairy farm Is under the
management of Ingledew and Tate,
who are manufacturing Kingston
Cheese. Mr. Young reports that the
rainy summer has proved very beneficial to his crops, although the soil
of the farm is not very rich In this
section. Four men are employed constantly on this section of the farm.
Mr. Young is well satisfied with the
results of his venture to the present
Mr. Frank Garnish, who has been
with the Horticultural Department of
the Unlverdty since 1917, Is now running a commercial nursery on the
same location. He reports that no research work is being done this year,
except that the B. C. Electric has
installed a hotbed as an experiment
The students have the use of the
nursery- as usual. "From the student's
standpoint," says Mr. Garnish, "I
should say there was no great difference, but It means more work for
the professors." Cutting, grafting, etc.,
are here learned by experimenting by
the students.
Mr. Garnish, too, is fairly well satisfied with his undertaking, although
he says ho would rather work with
the Varsity, than Independently, as at
Mr. Garnish mentioned the poor
quality of the soil but said that
wonderful results could be obtained
if it was well fertilized.
Professor Buck has taken over the
bulb  collection  for  the  Unlverdty,
and is directing the work of the University in Tulip culture.

It is expected that the weather will
be suitable for the growth of plants
peculiar to that climate, and the Rev.
Stanton has a case of wheat, corn,

About that certain
Senior  (guess who)
Who got
Infantile pardysls
From taking out too many
Pictures that Please
Particular People
About those Christmas exams. Dots
it never occur to you that our present day system is utterly unfair?
Why should one student pass aad
the red fall? It Is entirely against
the Communistic principle of "What's
good enough for you is good enough
for me."
If one student passes, then obviously the course is such that at least
one man can understand it. Therefore, merely because the mass has
not got enough brains to pass, why
should they be flunked? It is comparable to the question of the uneven division of wealth. All wedth
should be divided up evenly, and b
theory so should brains. But this
is obviously imposdble, as it would
rather injure a man for further
thinking If his brains were removed
and given to someone tht.
Thus each class should select the
brained man and allow him to write
their exams, for them. The class
should, of course, attend lectures.
Neither do I think it right that the
work of any class as a whole should
be divided up so unevenly. I mean
to say, the Professor lectures, and
the class takes down notes. Now tt
should be arranged so that the Professor lectures one week and a member of the class the next week should
give his views on the subject. The
Professor, of course, should be compelled to take the Student-Lecturer's
notes for that period. He would undoubtedly learn something new about
the subject, whatever it was. The
Professor would then understand the
t difficulties of taking his course, the
amount of work it entails, and so
forth. Too many Professors do not
realise this.
On the other hand, the students, if
thty all lectured in turn, would realise the difficulty of preparing the
lecture, the amount of work it entails In getting over the ideas of a
bunch of dumb gazabos that aren't
interested in it, and so forth. Too
many students do not realise this

Recently I had twelve bottles of
home-distilled whiskey in my collar
and my wife made me empty the
contents of each and every bottle
down the sink. I proceeded to do as
my wife desired and withdrew the
cork from the first bottle, poured the
contents down the sink with the exception of one glass which I drank.
I then withdrew the cork from the
second bottle and did likewise with
the exception of one glass which I
drank. I extracted the cork from the
third bottle, emptied the good old
booze down the bottle, except the
glass which I devoured. I pulled the
cork from the fourth sink and poured
down the glass when I drank some.
I pulled the sink out of tht next
cork and poured the bottle down my
neck. I pulled "the next bottle out
of my throat, and poured the cork
down the glass, all but one sink
which I drank.
I pulled the next cork from my
throat and poured the sink down the

twenty-four, so I counted them again
when they came around, and I. had
seventy-four, and as the house came
round I counted them and finally I
had all the houses and bottles counted and I proceeded to wash the bottles, so I turned the houses indde
out and washed and wiped them all,
and went upstairs and told my other

Chang Suey
When we made our way into the Pub
a frightful scene met our eyes. Typewriter ribbons were strewn dl around
the room, hanging in great festoons
from the electric lights, and looped
over the radiators in bunches. On the
floor were great masses of extinguished cigarette butts. "Chang Suey has
been In here," said Duncan Eetit,
turning pale with horror.
Racing into the Pub we fled to the
typewriters. "The scoundrel!" gulped
Eetit, "He's trying to wreck the Ubyssey. He's taken all the x's." As we
stood gazing at each other In consternation a fiendish laugh came to
our ears. "How did he get out of the
drain??" cried Eetit turning to me hi
bewilderment. "I'd rather be shot than

Chang Suey, and as we turned we
saw him disappearing through the

he was well on his way to the Sdence

dashed in pursuit. We dashed into
the building and dashed out again.
We dashed hither and yon. "Dash

moon looked down at us with a grin.
"Lend me a match, I've gone out. The

Packmen Meet Cubs

Next Monday night Vanity's Intermediate lee Hockey team will play
the Westminster Cubs Juniors in a
friendly game. This match was arranged through Art Schuman, and
the Cubs state that they will down
the studenta by two goals. Art and
our boys think differently however,
and are confident that the conditions
will be reversed.
The contest promises to be a closely-fought one, with the odds in favor
of the Blue and Oold team. There
is nothing official about the contest,
it has nothing to do with League fixtures at all, which are going to gd
under way about the middle of this
month. It will mean vduable practice for the Vardty pucksters, who
are just rounding into form and beginning to work together as a whole.
The Hockey Club was sorry to hear
that King McGregor would bt unable to play for U.B.C. this year.
King is going east to Calgary for the
whiter but promises to bt back next
There was a brief meeting of the
club on Wednesday when a few business matters were taken up. League
practice hours at the Arena and Forum have not yet been divulged, but
will be in the hands of the various
teams in the Leagues by next Monday at the latest, it is expected.

Senior B Hoopers
Invade Courtenay
To Show Prowess
Varsity's Senior B basketball squad,
under the capable care of that old
maestro, Randy Tervo, are travelling
to the Island today to engage the
Courtenay "Peps" ta an exhibition
The Courtenay lads have been
playing together for three or four
years now, and are rated as one of
the smarted teams on the idand.
Apparently they grow 'em big and
tough over there and when Tervo's
travellers step on the floor, they will
be up against tough eppodtion.
However, the Blue and Oold outfit
have been under strict training the
past while, and are expected to be in
prime condition for tonight's battle.
Those who are making the trip are
Wood, Sutton, Prlngle, Stokvis, Lucas,
Webster, McLeod and Coach Tervo.
Wood and Sutton, two of the beat
players, will be playing in their home
town and are expected to sway some
of the rooters to support Varsity.
Prlngle, who will be jumping centre, is an ardent devotee of the game,
and is expeded to start lots of plays.
Stokvis Is a Westminster tad and has
held down a berth on the Highway
Fur outfit. Lucas Is captain of the
team, and Webster and McLeod are
both players of experience.
Plenty of good basketball will be
dished up in this game before the
final score is settled.
Golfers Headed For
Collegiate Tourney
Bill Castleton, the genial president
of the Golf Club, brought good news
to those who have ambitions of making the golf team. He announced
that ta all probability the annual
match with the University of Washington will be held ta the near future. This waa certainly good news
as up to date it was thought impos-
rible to hold this match.
Those who have been victorious in

12, at Douglas Park East against the
league-leading Marpole aggregation.
Since Marpole needs this game to
retain its lead and Vardty to keep ln
the running, it is sure to be a very
hard-fought game. Marpole has been
turning out regularly and expects to
field its best possible line-up; while
the University boys have worked in
several new men including Jack
Steele and Paul Clement. With the
help of these ftrd-rate players and
the return of Max Stewart and the
captain, Roy Stobie, Varsity's chances
of mounting this important step towards the trophy appear good.
In this game Pyle will again play
tht wing forward and much of tht
result depends on him.

have lost one game, tied another and
won two. If University should win,
it will give them a chance to be in

have a very heavy line, and show
evidence of a tricky backfield. However, the U.B.C. make up in spirit
what they lack in weight, and with
enough of Doc Burke's sage football
