Roused Vancouver
Appeals to Board
Against Reduction
Over Ninety Organizations Combine In Concerted Appeal to University Governors-
Board To Consider Student Request
For Information
Deluged with delegations, a harassed Board of Governors
listened to an aroused Vancouver public deliver its views in
no uncertain fashion on the proposed cut in the University
appropriation foV 1932-33. If tiie entire or any cut were to be
made, which faculty should bear the brunt of the decrease,
Was the main topic of discussion Friday night.
Ninety Organisations
Over ninety different organisations
were represented by either delegations or resolutions. Among these
wm one from tho studenta, Including Ken Martin, chairman of the
Publicity Committee, Earl Vance,
president of the A.M.S., Dorothy.
Myers, Don McDiarmid, Ken Camp-
boll, St. John Madeley and Rosemary Winslow.
Although the meeting was scheduled for eight-fifteen, the Administration Building was half-full of
people by quarter to eight. Dr.
Sedgewick, Professor Day, and other
members of faculty superintended
the registration of names and organizations represented. After registration the delegates wero shepherded
over to Arte 100 where they wore
addressed by Professor H. F. Angus on "The Value of An Arts Faculty."
Student Appeal Refused
The student delegation filed into
the Boardroom to make an appeal for co-operation and request
for information. In effect both wero
refused. The facts asked for were
the financial statement of the University for the session 1930-31, the
budget for the session 1931-32, and the
report of the Special Committee of
the Board of Governors. The Gov-

Kenneth Martin
and Earl Vance
Go to Capital
Scotty Mclnnes has been carrying
on the good work of the Publicity
Committee in Victoria. As tangible
results of a trip to the capital he
has lined up a hearing with the cabinet today at 3:00 p.m. and an interview with the conservative caucus
wlnn it meet3 early next week.
Earl Vance and Kenny Martin left
on the midnight boat for the capital
city where they will attempt to convince members of the executive
council of the provincial parliament.
They have files and files of materials and statistics, and It is hoped
that they will be able to swamp the
ministers with the very weight of
their material. If this fails they still
have considerable argumentative
ability to fall back on.
It is considered probable that these
same two men will try to convince
the conservative caucus of the worthiness of their cause when that
body meets to consider ways and
means and policies just prior to the
coming session of the legislature.

The Arts '34 oratorical contest will
take place on Friday, February 19,
Winners will receive valuable book
This competition has been held
with increasing success since its inauguration by the class of '30 in
its sophomore year. This event
has considerable influence in bringing out latent oratorical talent in
the University. It is a chance for
would-be speakers to attain the first
rung ot the ladder, as previous careers have revealed.
Tryouts will be held on the Friday previous in Arts 106 at 12:10.
Speeches must not exceed 5 minutes
in length.
The winner last year was Paul
Campbell who represented U.B.C. at
Winnipeg in this year's inter-collegiate debate. He discussed "The
Doubtful Value of Lectures in the

Legal Authorities
Recognize Degrees
Of U.B.C. Students
The University of British Columbia has received formal notification
from the Council of Legal Education
in England that the University has
been approved by the Council and
that its degree examinations will
qualify its students for admission at
any one of the four Inns of Court.
This recognition is a great advantage to graduates of the University
of British Columbia who wish to
read Law and obtain Call to the Bar
in England. It b particularly useful to Rhodes Scholars who are often students at the Inns of Court
concurrently with their work at Oxford in the final Honours School of
Jurisprudence or in preparation for
the degree ot B.C.L. As late as November of last year the only two
Canadian Universities recognized for
this purpose have been McGill and
Toronto. Graduates of other Canadian Universities have been admitted in special cases but only after making separate application
which   sometimes   involves   delay.
General Public
Gives  Committee
Strong Support
The Publicity Committee are receiving numerous letters from the
people of Vancouver and other points
in B.C. with regard to the proposed
cut. These letters are not all from
the big business or professional man.
Many are from the smaller tax-payers,
from the ordinary man with a vote
The following Is typical of many
letters received:
Dear Sirs:
Just a few lines to let you know
that I and all tho members of my
family are In hearty accord with
your stand, and as an average
family of B.C. do not believe In
any curtailment of Its present
system (the University's) and
agree that It should have larger
scope if anything, as It's about
rime Canada and Canadians went
forward; altogether those an
fourteen votes and they will bo
used against those who blight our
children's future.
Yours sincerely,
W. S. B.
The second letter of the series being
sent out by the Publicity Committee
to important people of the province
has now been prepared. Five thousand or more residents of B.C. will
receive copies. This letter contains
a statement of the University's eco
nomic status at present and presents
the reasons why, in the opinion of the
student body, a further cut is not
only injudicious but unpractical. The
letter follows:
Dear Sir or Madam:
The Student Publicity Campaign is
not being carried on in an effort to
get a larger grant than that received
by the University for the fiscal year
The students realize fully the seriousness of the financial situation in'
this province and throughout the
world. They applaud the wise ond|
timely efforts of the government to
economize in every practical way. It
is only by rigid economy that the present period of depression can be met
and banished.
Thc students make no claim that the
University should be exempted from
economies. Neither do they make
any protest against any personal Inconveniences which may be incident
to the making of them.
On the contrary, they have already
shown their willingness to co-operate
by accepting uncomplainingly, the 25
per cent, increase in fees which has
been made this year. And they are
anxious to co-operate further in eliminating any unnecessary expenses
which may still exist in the university
British Columbia is not bankrupt,
either financially or spiritually. And
it should not allow the present crisis
to blind it to the future.
The University budget was cut last
year by 25 per cent.; and fees were
increased 25 per cent. This means that:
(1) The students are paying higher
fees than in any other Provincial University in Canada;
(2) The students are paying a larger percentage of the cost of their
education than any others in Canada
(3) Already the University of British Columbia has reduced its expenses more than any other provincial
university  in  Canada,   although  Its

Students Strive Today For tho University As Classes of '22-'23 Fought
In Its Interests
At a time when the energies of the
entire student body are being devoted
to carrying on the greatest campaign
in the history of our university, it is
interesting to recall the tremendous
campaign so successfully conducted in
The avowed object of the campaign,
then as today, was to present the facts
regarding the university to the people
of British Columbia, that they might
judge for themselves whether It
should be properly established or not.
It was felt that once the public was
in possession of the true facts of the
case it would demand in no uncertain
terms that the work of construction
at Point Grey be undertaken without
Plans for the campaign were carefully drawn up during the summer of
'22 and with the opening of the fall
term the drive began in earnest. Mass
meetings of the students were held
and details were thoroughly discussed.
A canvass was made ot every house
in Vancouver to secure signatures for
a petition not only stating the desires
and hopes of the students, but representing the views of the electors, "in
the hope of proving to the government that the people support us when
we say that higher education is not
a luxury but a necessity." The enthusiasm of the students was contagious. The initiative, resource, and
energy with which the canvass was
prosecuted caught and fired the imagination of men and women in all
parts of the province.
Coming as a climax to the campaign
was Varsity week, a whirlwind of
success, culminating in the great pilgrimage from Fairview to the future
site of the University, and the erection of the memorial cairn. Every
student in the university was on hand
for the parade; floats and slogans
were all original and constructed with
the purpose of bringing home to the
people the acute congestion existing
in Fairview, the admirable manner in
which practically every student assumed personal responsibility for the
success of the parade was the most
outstanding characteristic of the whole
On the Saturday afternoon the
whole student body took part in the
construction of the memorial cairn.
Firmly embedded at the base was a
roll of parchment recording the efforts
of the students and the 51,000 signatures of the people. The dedication

Delegation Which Meets Cabinet Today
At 3:00 p.m.
For tho purpose of obtaining a vote of confidence from the
student body before sending a delegation consisting of Ken
Martin and Earl Vance to Victoria to convince the cabinet of the
importance of the University to the province, Council called
an Alma Mater Meeting for Monday noon. The meeting was
packed to the doors.

Committee Leader
Asks Out of Town
Students for Aid
"It is essential that the student
campaign have the support of all
outlying parts of British Columbia,"
said Ken Martin, chairman of the
Publicity Committee, addressing out-
of-town students in Arts 100, Friday
noon, "and to secure this support
the Committee depends upon you,"
he declared.
"We've got to get out and fight
for Varsity and make the public
sympathetic with us," he continued,
"and the only way to reach the hinterland is to send out information
concerning the University. Put the
case fairly before all influential
people in your home town, and in
your letters mention some of the facts
which you will be given shortly," he
Win Shilvock, chairman of the
Publicity Sub-Committee, pointed out
that students coming from outside
Vancouver were numerous and influential, and suggested that they enclose the latest circular in their letters.
He mentioned the fact that all other
provinces were In favor of a University, even though no college in
Canada was as cheap to support as
Milt Owen, president of Arts '34,
asked students present to sign over
their $2 caution money if they had
not already done so, and put a large
number of statistics before his audience. Among other facts, he demonstrated that the Government will
actually lose 3520,000 annually if the
University was closed, and declared
that, should the cut go into effect,
the reduction of expenses in the department of Education would exceed
any cut in any other department.
Smallpox Scare
Causes Demand
For Vaccination
As a result of the threat of smallpox in the city there has been a
sudden rush among the students to
the Health office. By noon on Monday morning 340 students had been
done, 250 of whom had not been
done within the last seven years.
There are still at least 215 students
in the University who have never
been vaccinated, and have not as
yet presented themselves for vaccination.
Owing to the shortage of vaccine,
as a result of the sudden rush, the
Health Service Department has been
obliged to refuse vaccination to
many who have been done within
the last seven years in order to
conserve the supply.
had boon done by the committee
and what they Intended to do In tho
near future, stated that it was necessary to stick to tho main point.
Students should not allow themselves
to be sidetracked by any rumours
which might be circulating, concerning the reception accorded a student
delegation to the powers that be.
He thanked all the students who
had offered their help to the'committee for clerical and other work.
He stated that although he had been
gratified at the response to the appeal for help, nevertheless he was
rather disappointed to find that
more students did not offer practical
An additional appeal was made to
members of the student body who
come from the interior of British
Columbia to get in touch with their
parents and Influential men in their
localities, and to get these men to
approach the legislative representative for their districts concerning
the proposed reduction. In this con-
nectijau Eari dVance" stated -that an
ex-minister of education had stated
that one letter or wire from a member's constituency had far more effect than hundreds of signatures on
a petition.
The vote of confidence was followed by prolonged applause. Vance
and Martin left last night and will
wait upon the cabinet at 3:00 p.m.
today. Students hope for tangible
results from this effort.
Earl Vance, in addressing the
meeting, stated that it was necessary
to carry on the campaign to the
bitter end. Present signs made it
look as though it might be necessary
to continue the fight for another
two or three weeks. He made an
appeal for additional caution money
waivers, but despite the patriotic
applause which followed the appeal,
only twenty-one waivers were signed
directly after the meeting.
The meeting was thrown open to
discussion and in reply to the question as to what the committee intended to do if the campaign failed,
Earl Vance replied, "We don't expect to lose."
Letters and Telegrams Effective
The efficacy of various methods
of bringing the opinion of the public with regard to the University to
the attention of the government has
received much consideration from
the Publicity Committee lately. It
is now generally supposed that petitions will be circulated for signatures. However Win Shilvock,
chairman of the Publicity Committee
points out that personal letters or
telegrams to members of the Legislature are far more effective tht»n
long lists of signatures. Shilvock
quoted an ex-Cabinet Minister as
saying that two or three personal
letters from influential voters were
worth more than thousands of names
attached to a circulated petition. The
Committee is therefore urging students to suggest this form of approach to any persons who might be
capable and willing to use it effectively.

The butcher, the baker, the candlestick
maker, the doctor, the lawyer, the—well perhaps not the Indian Chief, but at least the
Native Son,—aU were represented at Friday's
meeting called at the Instigation of students
for the purpose of letting the Board of Governors hear public opinion on tiie question of
the proposed cut in the legislative grant to
the University. tl"' ,l
Not tens, nor hundreds, nor even thousands
but scores of thousands were represented at
the meeting. A conservative estimate would
place the number at 85,000. And the delegates of these people were not present to commend the Board of Governors on its action in
tacitly accepting <the proposed slash at the
University finances. They were not there to
convey congratulations to the government on
its economical policies. They did not even
congregate to sympathise with the legislature
in the drastic cuts which would be necessary if
taxes were to be kept down. No, these delegates were gathered together to make it plain
that a very large proportion of the voting public of B.C. does not believe that education is
tiie first thing which should suffer in times of
depression; that it does not think that the University is "a playground for the children of
the rich" and that it will not brook any serious
curtailment in the functions of the institution.
• We of the University have frequently deplored the apathy which the people of the
province have displayed towards U. B. C; of
late we have criticised the public for its lack
of support of a state college. Perhaps this
criticism was unmerited. At least the students
ought to be grateful to the many organizations
which have come forward in this overwhelming
demonstration of public support. Such an indication of public goodwill puts new life into
the student campaign.
If press reports may be credited, the Minister of Education has said that the matter
of the reduced University grant is closed, the
reduction has been settled. He has further
implied that the kiddies can yell as much as
they please but it will have no effect. Recent
events would suggest that the kiddies are
going to have a handful of husky playmates
to help them raise a holler.
Now that Vancouver has shown itself so
vitally conscious of the University's danger at
this time, it is felt that the Board of Governors
will probably find it possible in a very short
time to place in student hands the facts they
urgently need to continue the Publicity Campaign successfully.
Results so far have proven that student
efforts to arouse public interest and support
have not been as' misdirected as certain critics
thought. Thousands of intelligent residents in
B.C. require only an introduction to the facts
of the situation to see the position of U.B.C.
clearly. That they be given an honest and
accurate account of these facts is the immediate concern of the Publicity Bureau, from
those already in touch with the situation, the
response has been heartening.
Many letters are being received here offering friendly encouragement and practical assistance. Not only the man who is a leader
among others, but in many cases also the average man busy with his own affairs, has given
utterance to the deep conviction that present
"economy" in the educational budget is criminal lack of foresight for the future. The Sunday edition of a downtown paper, one with a
wide circulation, takes the same stand. With
such able and influential support, the outlook
is brighter than it has been for weeks past.
There is a new feeling present on the campus
these last days—a growing confidence among
the students that the people of British Columbia regard the University in a spirit of
friendly proprietorship—that the general public of this province is no more lacking in generosity and forethought than are the residents
Tuesday, February 9,1932
I suppose there has seldom been such a
demonstration of community feeling in British
Columbia as the one staged on Friday night,
when 92 city and provincial or-
Saving the ganizatlona were represented at
University a meeting with the Board of Governors. Students, alumni of several universities, parents, teachers, the Protestant and Catholic clergy, the professions, the
trades and Labor Council, the Native Sons
and Daughters, service clubs, several women's
organizations and a number of agricultural interests were among those who sent delegates.
Assembling' at short notice, mainly in response io appeals of student* and faculty, this
gathering was unexpectedly large and impressive. Such support came as a tremendous relief to all who* art anxious for the welfare of
the University. It made one, as a student, feel
very humble, too.
The reception accorded the student delegation was, to put it mildly, not very encouraging. No effort was made to answer gome of
their questions, and the supplying of information asked for was postponed. As the Province
put it, "a committee of students, at whose request the meeting was called, was also heard."
Chancellor McKechnie is quoted aa saying:
"Thia looks like the night before Waterloo?'
One presumes that supporters of the University are the Allies.  Down with Napoleon!
J. P. Hampton Bole of the Native Sons and
Daughters took a strong stand. The University must not be interfered with or its standard lowered, and the Governors should ask for
a larger grant—such is the view, he intimated,
of 25,000 native citizens. One of the finest
manifestations of true patriotism is a determination to support and encourage education, a
determination so strong that adversity cannot
shake it. That is characteristic of a great and
progressive people.
Dr. H. L. MacNeill, representing the clergy,
was outspoken. If the Board of Governors has
agreed to the cut, it should go back to the
government and ask for more, he declared.
"Only the elected representatives of the
people" have the right to decide the matter, he
believed. This view was greeted with rounds
of applause from the other delegates.
Percy R. Bengough, secretary-treasurer of
the Vancouver and New Westminster Trades
and Labor Council, promised support in opposition to the proposed reduction. He said, I
am told, that organized labor always supports
education, be the times good or bad. That is
the only attitude possible to those interested
in social progress.
In these times there are temptations for
one faculty to try to secure its position at the
expense of the others. Students hope that the
University will present a solid front, believing
that the every-man-for-himself impulse must
be restrained and all action taken in the general interest.
The students are directing their efforts to
the obtaining of enough money to keep the
whole University functioning without further
curtailment. They are trusting the faculties,
the Senate and the Board of Governors to
maintain the same united purpose. A great
section of the public is already behind us, and,
with determination and energy, the situation
can be saved.

cost,   In   proportion   to   the   attendance, has been among the lowest.
These large but necessary economies
we have accepted cheerfully, but further economies are not practical from
any point of view. And we urge upon
your consideration the fact that the
University already has taken a cut
that is comparable to that In any other
public service and greater than the
cuts of most.
Our present reduced general grant
Is J437.700.00. We are making no effort to have this increased. But we
contend emphatically that it should
receive no further cut; and we maintain that another reduction will have
disastrous results for the University
and the province.
A proposal to make a new cut of
43 per cent, has been made. This,
added to the one of last year, would
result in a total reduction if 57 per
cent, from the grant of two years ago.
What private business, or what other
Institution would survive effectively
a 57 per cent, cut?
It cannot be made without fatal
consequences to the University's efficiency and standing.
Years of effort and millions of
money have been spent In building
up this Institution. One lnjudlclaus
act may not only destroy it, but make
necessary a repetition of this expenditure of effort and money.
It will take nearly as long to reestablish the University as it has
taken to build it up to its present
Consequently, until it is necessary
to make corresponding reductions in
other less Important provincial services, no further cut should be made
in the University grant.
There are 2,755 students enrolled, of
whom 2,142 attend courses given
throughout the session. They spend in
the province at least 11,500,000.00 per
annum, for fees and living expenses.
If the efficiency and standing of the
University is damaged it is conserve-
tice to estimate that from 1,000 to 1,500
of these will go elsewhere.
In that case from $750,000.00 to SI,-
000,000.00, which is now being spent
In British Columbia, will be spent
Unemployment and the expense
entailed by it will inevitably increase
throughout the province.
The proposed reduction in the University grant is S195.000.00. Can the
province afford to drive away 1750,-
000,00 in order to save that outlay?
Further Information will appear in
the newspapers.   Watch for it!
Yours truly,
The College Bred
ernors   'would  consider   the   request
of the students."
The Alumni Association were represented by Miss Isobel Harvey, Mrs.
Kay Lawrence (Miss Kay Peck of
'19) and Gordon Scott. On coming
out of the boardroom they stated
that they had been favorably received.
Demonstration of Spirit
One hundred and fifty chairs, I
moved into the boardroom to accomodate the delegation, failed to accomplish their purpose, and many of
those present had to stand for nearly two hours. E. A. Lucas, representing the Toronto Graduates in
B. C, stated that, "it was the greatest demonstration of' community
spiri I hi ve seen since the Armistice."
Col. H. W. Cooper, representing
the Canadian Legion and the Native
Sons, stated "there are 10,000 Native
Sons; there are 10,000 members of
the Canadian Legion; these men are
all family men and like good family
men they control their families'
votes. These whom I represent are
both able and willing to express
their feelings on this drastic reduction. If reason is to rule, justice
must be done to the higher educational system which we have Inaugurated."
Support From Clergy
"The Ministerial Association which
I represent is both able and willing
to make representations at Victoria
regarding this proposed slash," stated
Rev. H.L.MacNeil of the Baptist Ministerial Association. Col. Fallis, of
the Vancouver Presbytery, "Our
presbytery Is alarmed that the standard of the Arts Faculty Is to be
Father Kennedy, representing His
Grace the Archbishop of Vancouver,
in addressing the Board said, "You
are robbing a man of something of
vital value in life, something that
nothing else can supply if you reduce educational facilities. You are
sending him out into lite with something lacking—that something is the
cultural value which only a University can give."
Labour Represented
Many people present expressed
surprise that a representative of the
Trades and Labour Congress should
be present. "Roughly speaking 1
am here representing 15,000 voters.
We do not believe the University
should be cut. Times of financial
stringency, are times for educational
extension, not for retrenchment,"
sums  up  his  statements.      *

On the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of this week, February 11, 12
and 13, The Little Theatre will stage
the Sparkling Domestic Comedy, "All
the King's Horses," one of the most
amusing and true to life plays that
the Little Theatre has produced in
recent years. The story has a very
Interesting twist and one that should
appeal to every member of the audience. Mr. G. Roy Kievill is making
his debut as a producer with a very
excellent cast consisting of Mrs. Anne
Ferguson who will take the part
played by Irene Vanburgh in London,
Mr. C. T. Lennox, remembered for his
part in "The Queen's Husband," Mr.
B. G. Dubois Phillips, a player of
many leading roles; Basil Langton,
one of the promising new players and
V. T. Richards who made such an
outstanding success in "Gefangen;"
Morach Hobbs—Fernle is a player who
can be relied upon to get the most
out of any part, particularly character
studies at which she excells. Miss
Margot Gordon is a new-comer to the
Little Theatre ranks, from Hart
House, Toronto, where she had a notable record of successes. Miss Kathleen Wallace and Miss Maybelle Bryant take small but difficult parts
rounding out a cast of exceptional
merit. "All the King's Horses" has
created so much interest in Little
Theatre circles and among the general
public that full houses are anticipated for its run of three nights.

It is also rumoured that the majority of the organizations represented at the open meeting of the
board of governors will make representations at Victoria with the object of making the government see
the light. "Hands off the University" is their adopted slogan and
they are blazoning it far and wide.
Up to the time of going to press
it was impossible to discover, whether, as a result of the special meeting of the board of governors a delegation from that body will meet
the Honorable the Minister of Education concerning what the people
of Greater Vancouver think of his

Ellensburg Cage Team Here Thursday
Famous Washington Hoopsters Scheduled
To Oppose Blue and Gold Quintette
On Point Grey Basket Court This Week
British Columbia Team Prepares for Coming
Contest — Visitors Rated as One or
Strongest Normal Squads Ever
Produced in Northwest — Pep
Meeting at Noon Thursday.
After nearly a month of comparative
idleness tho Senior "A" basketball
team of tho University of B.C. will
oppose one of the greatest hoop aggregations that have ever corns te Vancouver. When tho Blue and Oold
quintette trots on the floor on Thursday night against Ellensburg Normal,
the squad will probably bo composed
of the players that will attempt to
defend tho Canadian championship
this spring.
While no definite information is
forthcoming, tho collegian cage trusts
hope to have all of
the squad eligible on
Thursday night, but it
Is believed that if the
entire lineup is not
available this week
there is little hope of
strengthening the team
by the addition of tho
Ineligible men later on.
Until the meeting of
Nicholson the Students' Council
late last night no definite statement
could be obtained although it was Intimated that the eligibility question
would be discussed. Without the
ousted men, coach Arnold Henderson
has nine players to depend on. Captain Bob Osborne will certainly start
at guard with Doug Mclntyre probably working beside him. The pair have
developed a solid defense and will
make it tough for the visitors' attack.
Laurie Nicholson is
the present choice for
centre berth while Pi
Campbell and Ken
Wright are probable
starters on the forward line. This squad
has plenty of height
and is extremely fast.
Nicholson, Campbell,
and Osborne are effec- c ^
tive on rebounds, while
Mclntyre is deadly on long shooting.
Ed Armstrong is as reliable a relief
player as anyone could wish, and
should see plenty of action in the
contest. Jimmy Bardsley, the Senior
"B" flash who was signed with the
first string squad two weeks ago, is
making a name for
himself in the higher
company, and will
have an opportunity
to show his ability
against Ellensburg.
Another substitute of
note is Jack Waimsley,
star of many rugby
and hockey campaigns,
who has in his first
season of senior basketball shown wonderful Improvement.
On Wednesday the hoopsters will
resume morning practices and the
affairs will become a dally habit until
the playoffs.
At noon Thursday, members of the
Basketball Club will stage a Pep
Meeting in the Auditorium.
Varsity hoop fans will have an
opportunity of seeing one of the
strongest basketball squads over to
visit U.B.C. when the crack Ellensburg squad will be entertained in
the campus gym on Thursday. Feb.
11 at nine p.m. Tho big gams will
probably start after a couple of
curtain raisers In which tho Senior
"A" women and the Senior "B"
men will participate at 7 p.m. and
8 p.m. respectively. The latter
games have not yet been decided
The Ellensburg aggregation have
been engaged In a rather ambitious
schedule this year, playing a number ot exhibit games with teams
from the Pacific Coast Conference
besides keeping up with their seasonal Trl-Normal schedule with Bel-
llngham and Cheney. They are on
their way to their, fifth consecutive
championship In that series.
In their exhibition series so far
they have broken even with the
University of Idaho and loaf to
Washington and Oregon by very
slim margins. Memories of our own
visit to Washington should enable
the Varsity squad to regard the efforts of the Ellensburg representatives ln holding the "Huskies" to a
23-30 score on the letter's home
floor as something of a feat.
The following table of the visiting players might indicate one or
two reasons why they have held
their own so far and also why the
Varsity squad are doing some pretty
intensive training:

Gridmen Resume
Daily Workouts
With old man snow all washed up
by tough guy rain Canadian football is raring to go and will resume
practises immediately. Coaches Farrington and Hedreen have called
workouts for everyday in the week;
Monday and Tuesday mornings and
the remaining days in the afternoons.
Doc Burke will be back to give all
the time he can and teach the boys
the fine points of this hard-knock
game. In the spring of every year
there is always a lot of men developed that make a place on the big
four team in the fall and ln view
of this fact Burke wants to get all
the material he can.
The Canadian football league will
most likely get away a week from
next Saturday and there Is not much
time left to get In shape. Everyone
that has any intention of playing
should be out to every practise, on
Roy Eyre has been made manager of the squad and he will see
that everybody gets equipment for
practises. So everybody out tomorrow afternoon at 3.

In the game on Saturday Arts '34
eked out a narrow 80-18 win over
Science '33. The two squsds were
deadlocked at half time with eight
points apiece but in tho final canto the
sophomores dropped ln tho odd
basket to cinch tiie affair.
Once again the refereelng waa of the
"Lalssez falre" variety and the boys
disported themselves with gusto from
start to finish. Every man on the
winning squad turned ln a good game
with Husky Oavln Dirom the shining
light of the Sciencemen. The muscular member of council bagged eight
of his team's points, and threw everything Into the fray but the proverbial
kitchen sink in an effort to stave off

With all of the snow gone and the
ground getting back to normal, we can
expect to see the soccer teams back
in action before long. The boys have
had quite a layoff and reports have it
that they are itching to chase the ball
around once more. Accordingly we
may expect the soccer schedule to
be resumed with renewed vigor just
as soon as it is possible to step on to
the playing field without going ankle
deep tn the mud.

Vance Stars Aslf
Council Defeats
Pub Court Men
Descending in all their august
might from the sanctum-sanctorum
of the Auditorium, members of
Council held an extraordinary meeting in the gymnasium on Saturday,
at which they roundly trounced the
would-be basketball team of the
Publications Board by the decisive
score of 23 points to 7. Wilfred Lee
and his associated scribblers put up
a game but losing battle throughout,
Council treating the whole affair
as a matter of routine business and
railroading it through in a style
reminiscent of the palmy days of
Don Hutchison and company.
Earl Vance, nattily attired in a
flaming orange sweater, blue shirt,
dotted tie, and red suspenders to
match, handled the whistle and kept
the business of the afternoon more
or less in order.
Council jumped into an early lead
when Dirom, Donaldson, and Collins
all rang the welkin, with the Pub's
only score coming from Oordon "Our
Hero" Root, star guard and floor
general of the losers. Intermission
found the scribes on the wrong end
of an 11-2 count.
King Scores for Journalists
Ev King, eagle-eyed forward of
the journalists, tallied ln the second
canto with a brilliant field basket,
which was duplicated a moment
later   by   Arnold   White,   and   the
mighty Root managed to convert a
foul, but Council's forward line was
working with machine like precision
and the newsies were again out-
scored by 12-5.
The forward line of the winners
played brilliant basketball all game,
Dirom, Donaldson, and Collins all
showing to advantage. Thompson
was good at guard, while that old
war horse, Bill Whimster, gave a
distinctive display in various utility
roles. Arnold Henderson, signed by
Council following rumours that he
once played in high class hoop circles himself, found the going too fast
and was unable to break into the
scoring columns. His work on the
defence showed signs of promise,
Of the scribes, Root was hicjh
marksman with three points, while
Long Tom How was also one of
the big shots of the attacking line.
Aqua, diminutive forward flash, was
kept on the bench too much while
Root at guard was well watched by
the worthy Councillors. Lee and
Madeley appeared rather stale, possibly from over-training.
Following the game the victors
posed for the photographers and motion picture camera men. The referee and the Misses Dorothy Myers
jand Isobel McArthur, official rooters for the squad, were included in
'the pictures.
The teams:
Council—Henderson, Dirom (6),
Donaldson (5), Whimster (2), Collins
(8), and Thompson   (2)—23.
Pub. Board-King (2), Lee, White
(2), Root (3), Madeley, How, Aqua
ond  Washington—7.

Another large and highly-
coloured feather was added to
the Varsity basketball cap
when, at Westminster, Saturday night, Doug Reid's revamped Intermediate "A"
squad upset the B.C. champions, Highway Fur, by 23-19.
From the first whistle the
Blue and Gold played like men
inspired, running in eight points
without a reply. Captain Carman
Ridland took the ball from the tip-
off and sneaked around the side for
the first basket. Ray Turner showed
that his ability is not Confined to
the class presidency when he
dropped in a nice shot from well
out. One minute later Charlie
Hardwick scored from the side and
shortly after that Jack Prior converted a pretty one-handed effort.
A dazed Highway Fur team called
time out. Resuming play, the Furriers brought new hope to the loyal
Westminster fans when they brought
the score to a tie. Four baskets from
outside the foul line did the trick.
Varsity substituted Art Harper for
Ridland. Hardwick converted a free
shot and Turner scored twice to
give the students a half-time lead
of 14-8. No fouls were called against
Varsity in this half.
Turner Scores
Blue and Gold opened the second
half with a slight shift in line-up,
Keate going on for Hardwick at
Ruard. Varsity continued their scoring bee, Ray Turner converting two
pretty baskets and a free throw.
Jack Prior made one of the best
shots of the night when he scored
from an almost impossible nngle.
Ridland was by this time eager to
get back in the fray and on a
substitution he replaced Harper and
McGuire replaced Keate. "Mickey"
heralded his entry with a pot shot
from outside the foul line. While
all this scoring was going on, the
Furriers could reply only once. With
five minutes to go and the score
23-12 against them, the New Westminster crew began to rough it.
Varsity fought right back, incurring
four personals in this half. Sending
down four-man rushes the Fur gang
succeeded ln scoring three baskets.
With each basket the home-towners
nearly raised the roof. Doug Reid,
Varsity manager, became so interested in the game that he forgot to
watch the time but the extra minute
or two made little difference.
