RULES REVISED
RE ELIGIBILITY
Rann Matthison, dynamic and illustrious Men's Athletic Prexy, has
decided that the existing eligibility
rules are unfair, inconsistent, and
full of loopholes,
Rann will endeavor to discuss the
system as lt exists now with governors, faculty, and club executives,
with the intention of devising a new
and air-tight list of rules for students' participating in extra-curricular activities.
At present it is possible to squeeze
through one or more of the various
gaps ln the ruling's set-up. There
will be no such gaps in Mr. Matthi-
son's new schedule, 'which will be
moderate, but strictly enforced.
"CAPITALISM" TO BE
FORUM DEBATE TOPIC
Advantages and disadvantages of
the capitalistic system will be discussed at tha next regular fortnightly
meeting of the Parliamentary Porum
which will be held ln Arts 100 at 7.30
p.m. Thursday, February 2.
Leading   the   government   forces
against capitalism  will  be  Douglas
McGinn who will uphold the affirmative of the resolution that "Capitalism    Has    Outlived    Its  Usefulness."
Staunch supporters of the Capitalist order will be led by Bill Backman.
opposing  the resolution.
Following the main speakers the
meeting will be thrown open for gen-
ers.l discussion. Professor J. Friend
Day   will   preside.
These are the eight more or less beautiful oandldates for "Queen of the Junior Prom." As you oan see
eaoh is holding the banner of her sorority high ln the air. We suppose that these girls are running for
Junior Prom queen because they are tbe most beautiful Juniors in eaoh sorority. If our supposition is true then
the girls In Kappa Kappa Gamma are twice as beautiful aa the girls In the other sororities because they have
two members running. Maybe our supposition Is not true. Two girls do not belong to a sorority which
might nominate them. We wonder how they oould havo been suggested but we think tbat perhaps the
people who come to university thought they were beautiful.
There are two sororities who did not nominate themselves for "Prom Queen." Maybe they have no
beautiful members whom they oould nominate or maybe they Just wanted to be different from other sororities.
When we aaked why they didn't nominate someone for Prom Queen thoy sold they thought It was silly for
every sorority to nominate a member even if she was beautiful.   We think so too.
The man In the left corner of the picture Is a Junior who doesn't know who to vote for. His girl friend
doesn't belong to a sorority so he hasn't been told whloh one he shouM choose. We think that no-one else
knows  either. 1

Honorary Phi
Beta Kappa To
Be Established
Phi Beta Kappa, an honorary scholarship fraternity and one heretofore
never established at a Canadian university may soon have a chapter on
the campus of U.B.C.
Thia was the Arst fraternity to be
-established in the U.S., and its members must have an average of eighty
per cent, being admitted on the recommendation * of the registrar.
Membership is not until the Anal
year at Varsity.
Struan Robertson and Jack Davis were appointed by the Students'
Council last night to contact Phi
Beta Kappa authorities ln the U.S.
regarding the proposed chapter.
Due to lack of time, the faculty
will be requested to take charge of
the negotiations.
Becauae of the high scholastio
standard at U.B.C, little difficulty ls
expected by the local committee ln
having the local chapter accepted by
the national headquarters of the Phi
Beta   Kappa.
HOLMES AND MCLEOD
FOR FEMININE LEAD
IN MODERN PLAY
MR. WREN ON
"EDUCATION"
"Teach people how to think, not
what to think," stated Drummond
Wren, general secretary of the Workers' Educational Association of Canada in an address to the Vancouver
Institute at UB.C. Saturday night.
Speaking on "Education, What
For," Mr. Wren pointed out that
under the present system students
oould serve their community If they
did not set up a false set of values
whioh led them away from the
a flairs of the community Into the
Aelds of industrial engineering and
exeoutive  works.
Furthering this point. Mr. Wren
declared that students go to Important executive positions which do not
benefit the mass of their community
in a direct way, thereby depriving
the workers of the leadership which
they required.
"I want some tea, and in Vlenpa
tea means cocktails."
It's Amy Zander speaking, and
he's quoting from the Players' Club
fast-an-furlous Spring Production,
"The Curtain Rises," which is already going Into rehearsal.
RISK DIRECTS
Mr. Sidney Risk, a former U.B.C.
i student himself, is directing. While
at university he won the Players'
Club Prise for an original one-act
play, whloh was presented both here
on the stage and ln London over the
air waves.
Try-outs were held last Friday,
and   the   tentative   cast   list   two
actors for eaoh of the seven coveted parts. The feminine lead, Kiaa,
will   go   to   either   Cicely   Holmes,
Club secretary, or to Mary McLeod
who will be remembered for previous successes In Spring Plays.
The only other female part wAl be
contested    for    by    President    Anne
Carter and Alice Mather. In competition    for   matinee-Idol    Meisslnger
are  Arohle  Bain,   "Playboy"  of  last
year's  vehicle,  and  Jim  Frazee  who
scored ln the i_mas plays.
When it come, to profile both
these playboys make .Adonis look
like a junkman, so no matter which
wines, the feminine hearts Are going
to patter like a tin roof hi. a hailstorm,   to   put   it  grossly.
JOHNNIES COMPETE
Mild-mannered Franz, later revealed as a clandestine ladies' man, Will
be either John Carson or John Olen.,
Both these Johnnies scored ln the
Xmaa productions. Carson also has
a chance to be Rudolf, competing
with Dacre Barrett-Lennard.
Pat Keatley and Tom McDowell
will tussle for the juicy part of Amy,
newspaperman, Ufe-of-the-party, and
general embodiment of joi-de-vlvre.
MEAT
This meagre cast will carry the
whole weight of the play's success,
under the guiding hand of director
Sidney Risk.
This  year's  choice   Is  a   definite
reversal    of    previous    policy,    but
though it will be light, happy, and
fantastic, there will be lots of good
substantial meat, too.
What makes it such a good choice
Is that the meat ls cooked so well by
the author, and dished up so smoothly  by the  players,  that the  audience
will gulp lt down and ask for more.

Thunder Over
Musical  Show
The success of "Serenade", thia
year's Musical Society production,
will depend to a great extent upon
the work done by Dick Jarvis' stage-
crew.
Harry Campbell and his carpenters
have already done a good deal of
work, making and repairing scenery.
Their work will be Anlshed soon,
and on the "big night" they will help
some of the other crews.
Charlie Parker, Who is in charge
of  the   stage  lighting,   has  one   of
the hardest tasks. He must provide,
amongst    other   things,    a    terrific
thunderstorm. Among the foremost
of his "gang" is Oarth Wade.  Ian
Cameron, who Is also on the lighting orew,  will handle  the big arc-
lamp, to spotlight the principals on
each "curtain oall."
Duncan   McPhadden,    who   helped
Harry    Campbell    with    the  scenery,
will be ln charge of the "Ay gallery",
high above the set, when "Serenade"
ls produced. His task ls to raise and
lower     the     "backdrops",     "teasers",
"borders", etc. on the great night.
"Props" In the person of Miss Mlml
Schofleld will provide those on stage
with the required blunderbusses, pigs,
canaries, or whatever else they happen to need.
The entire stage-crew has not as
yet been selected, but all those named, with their crews, have already
started   tholr  practises. Two

INVASION
The Victoria invasion is less than two weeks away and most
students are already preparing for the occasion. In making preparations every student should remember thot the Invasion is a
university function, and further remember that drinking is not
allowed at any affair sponsored by the Alma Mater Society.
The student authorities have had no trouble with the enforcement of this rule at unicersity dances for several years but there
has been the tendency for a few students to break regulations
during the Victoria trip.
This year, however, no infringement of the Alma Mater Society Code will be tolerated. Discipline authorities will see that any
offenders are given the maximum punishment. Thero has been
no trouble at any other university functions and there is no reason
that next Saturday's trip should be any different.
PHI BETA KAPPA
The establishment of a chapter of Pbi Beta Kappa is ono of
the most progressive steps taken by Students' Council this year.
Not only will the existence of such an association act as an incentive to higher scholarship and as a result benefit the university but
also the present high standard of the University of B.C. will undoubtedly be recognized and appreciated by the American fraternity.
Graduates of this university are often very fine students and
sometimes are inferior students. The establishment of such a
well known organization as Phi Beta Kappa on this oampus will
mark out those deserving scholars who have kept up their academic st'.ndards, from tho less commendable members of the
student body.
It has long beon proven thot membership in this fraternity is
of vast assistance in economic and social spheres, to those students
who are clever enough to earn membership. Any organization
whieh stresses the importance of academic competence in the outside world is consequently of groat importance.
Further, the establishment of such a society on the campus
would tend to place stress on the value of scholastic standing.
Unfortunately modern universities tend to transfer honor from
thoso students achieving success in their university work to thoso
students who are successful in social and extra-curricular fields.
Any organization which replaces emphasis on the true object of
attendance at university, that is academic competence, is laudable.
ELIGIBILITY CHIEF
The head of the Eligibility Committee, Rann Matthison, is to
bo commended on the manner in which ho has begun to recognize
tho eligibility rules. Tho section in tho University Code dealing
-with ineligihility has boon inadequate for many years but no official lias Riven it the time or thought necessary for a clarification of
the situation.
At last, Rann has decided to redraft the rules with tho o.o-oper-
ntion of members of faculty. The three deans ore to be consulted
on a scholarship standing which may be considered a fair eligibil-
itv  minimum.
*
Further. Rann is to be commended on his apparently sincere
desire to write the rulings in such a way that their meaning i.s un-
mistakeable. The present rules have boon the laughing stock of
the campus. "They can be interpreted in any of throe ways" has
been  the   remark  of studenls year after year.
"Wo must recognize that the l!):.S-r.O council has boon progressive in a great, number of ways, and we must also recognize Ihat
tlio rewriting of the  .eligibility rules i.s not tlie least of these ways.
t*__
Debating is not the most popular
form of entertainment that this
Campus offers the public—at
MOB least that is the only conclusion we could reach after the
McOoun Debate on laat Friday night.
The "capacity crowd" was one of
the smallest recently witnessed at
any of the debates held ln our sacred
halls. It seems to us, If we are permitted to harp on that trite subject,
'student spirit,' that the student
spirit,' that the student body is wag.
ing a boycott against the support of
lnter-unlverslty  functions.
But to revert to the debate itself
—it was a fine debate, but still
debatable debate. We do not intend
to deal with any of the points Intro,
duoed by either of the teams, nor to
question the merits of the Judges.
We merely wish to make this one
obsevratlon.
It appeared to ua that the deoislon
was the result of one of the speakers
playing forcefully
PSYCHOLOGY upon the emotions
of his audienoe, and
at the same time capitalising upon
the attitudes of a contemporary pub'
lie. There is little doubt that people
are today biassed in their outlook towards Oermany. In other words most
people hate Oermany and all things
Oerman. Emphasising this hate-
fanning it into Aame—won the de
bate.
Now when the emotions of a supposed individualist are Influenced in
order to affect the opinions of that
person, then 'it' is propaganda. (We
feel a trifle worried at the moment,
lest someone may shoot holes ln the
above generalisation.) The deoislon
the other night was, therefore, the
result of propaganda. Did you think
that?!  Amaslng isn't it?
There is yet another remark that
we should be pleased to make in connection with the "verbal tussle'
(Sports page language). Morris Bel
kin's rebuttal was one of the finest
pieoes of debating that we have
heard at this University. It was in
deed a beautiful morsel of oratory,
and a display of debating strategy
that la sadly needed upon this Cam'
pus.
At the outset of this tirade we suggested that student spirit was weak
But when it comes to electing
Queens for the Junior Prom the
spirits of the Campus rise. For the
flrst time ln some time there is to
be a real tussle. No fewer than eight
have been nominated!
Perhaps Chang Suey would term
them 'the dirty eight.' Can't you pio-
ture this dirty
SUEY AND THE eight crouching
JUNIOR PROM in the spiral sew
er on the Point,
preening their wretched features
with lamp black and old fat, cigarette butts and engine oil, then adding
a dash of colour with some partially
bleached blood? Slowly they would
creak to their bunioned feet, and
creep maliciously to the Prom,
shrieking curses at the starts, and
swearing in horrible oaths the vengeance they would wreak on those
who did not vote for them. Or would
they merely roast eaoh other at the
Orlll, until the blistering heat destroyed the very hearts of all but
one  hag?
We don't know, and we don't mind.
But Isn't lt a clever ruse of the
Executive ln charge ln refusing to
announce the Queen until her aotual
coronation at the Prom? Incidentally
the Totem editor just told me that
the winning Queen Is going to have
an "exclusive" photograph taken,
which will be copyrighted by him,
and printed ln this year's astonishing
annual!

WASHINGTON STUDENT
EARNS 'BLOOD MONEY'
FOR COLLEGE FEES
U. of W.—Harold Smith works his
way through school—not by the
sweat of his brow but by the blood in
his veins.
Smith,  a Junior   ln   mechanical
engineering,   at   Washington   University, pays for bis education by
giving transfusions.
About every Ave weeks he allows
a pint of blood to be drawn from his
body and transferred to some patient
whose life may depend upon lt.
Then Harold takes It easy for a
few days  and  waits  another  Ave
weeks for "transfusion time."
To Harold it's no deed of philanthropy.   It's purely a business proposition.     Necessity   has   shown   him
how to make his way   through   the
University.
It has also provided him with a
legitimate way of extracting "blood
money."

CHANG SUEY
AND
THE CASE OF THE
Copped Cornerstone
CHAPTER TWELVE
OBERON    AND   THE   GLAMOUR
GIRL
"Honourable ancestors remember
when blushes were behind the faft"
Chang Suey, vxiiiiiii.
An eerie, greenish glow squatted on
the walls and apparatus of the laboratory of Dr. Chang Suey. Waste Jars
scattered about on the Aoor were
loaded to the gunnels with dissected
Freshmen. Gaily-coloured smells Alt--
ted merrily about, vaulting over one
another with odorous abandon.
A large cabinet contained many
showcases Ailed with cross-sections
of Freshmen who had died of, and
were pickled In, Caf. coffee. A Jar
labelled "Sample Froah Brain" was
quite empty.
Another Jar contained a rare specl-
. . . hope we get there ln time.
men of University life called the
Ring-tailed Fratbug, a little animal
which runs around on the campus
at night, with its nose in the dirt
and kicking its heels ln the air. Mary
Ann Is reputed to be the only living
specimen, but even there, life has
not been deAnltely established.
BLONDIE.
Suddenly, a panel slid up on the
wall, and a beautiful blonde stepped
Into the room.
She undulated  to the middle of
the lab., carrying a silver eup on
whioh   were   engraved   the   words
"Chosen as tbe queen of the Junior
From, January, 1D39, presented by
Dr. Fooer."
With a sigh of relief, Chang Suey
kicked   off   his   high-heeled  slippers,
and removed his wig. After throwing
the cup Into a small furnace to be
melted   down,    he   gave   a   muddy
chuckle, and stepped up to the Onion Building cornerstone which rested
on the table.
NOT  COFFEE!
He seized a powerful Oaf. coffee
spray gun, and quickly cut a hole
through the solid rock. Oberon
Stench, scienceman extraordinary,
toppled out.
After careful Inspection, supplemented with psst experience with
Freshmen, had oonArmed Suey's
suspicions that Oberon was unconscious, the Aend waved an HSS
generator baok and forth under the
Stench beak.
As Oberon returned to comparative
life, Chang Suey leered eagerly. Hla
perfeot student was nearly Anished,
complete with collapsible knees for
eats ln Beastly Eleotrlo busses. All
he needed for it now was a brain.
And here lt was.
"Where am I?" moaned Oberon.
"Where's my  unknown? Who took
our sink? Who's cooking today?"
A horrible expression trod Its dirty
path over the Suey puss, as he recognised this as Chem. Lab. dialect. He
knew   too  well   that   the  scienceman
brain is a vacuum that has been put
into solitary conAnement, or, as Professor   HooAuggle   K.  Flirpsk   put   it,
"nothing, in a strong box."

WHITE HEAT.
Chang Suey was now white hot.
His mustachlos were rubbing themselves together as a Ay marcels his
front feet, fhe dragons on his kimono were chasing one another around
his chest.
"So you are a solenoeman?" hissed Chang Suey, dealing Ave wing-
Jlngs to his right hand.
Oberon blinked, and tried to crawl
into one   of   the   baggy knees that
broke   the   monotony   of   his   piped
pants, but Suey scraped him out, and
raised the w'ng-Jtngs over hts head.
SLIVERS.
At that crucial point, however,
there was a crashing and splintering
of wood, and an instant later, the
Dirty Nine, led by Carslse MoMlre,
broke through the secret panel, effectively hidden in a smoke screen
supplied by the gushy pipe of Stewln*
Wobllnson, who was born ln a tobacco pouch and was nourished on nicotine.
"There   he   1st"   yelled   Carslse.
"Grab him, men, I'm 'way behind
you I"
C. 8. sneered amiably, and did a
graceful back Jack-knife Into the
sink, to disappear with a boyish gurgle down the drain, as the Dirty Nine
thundered by and piled up ln a confused heap on the opposite wall.
CARSIZE.
Out of the wreckage, Carslse bulged to his full height, and mumbled
dazedly:
"The meeting will now eome to
order!"
As Oberon was peering blankly over
his unobtrusive waistline at his rescuers, a new voice, charged with authority, broke ln upon them.
"Hand's up! This Is a raid!"
All turned to see Mayor lie (Olv-
em) Hellfort standing ln the doorway, pointing a loaded tongue at
them.
"We have received Information that
e—
. . . hlssoner Hellfort
there is a Chinese dope circulating
on the campus. Where is it?"
"Chang Suey I" gasped the Dirty
Nine.
"Well get rid of it!" said the Mayor, curtly. "And you, young man," he
barked, stabbing a Anger at Stewln'
Wobllnson, "will have to get a licence
to operate that chimney. And you
can't smoke it under 00 feet."
GOVERNMENT.
"You can't order us around I" yip-
ped Carsize. "We are ln territory
under the Jurisdiction of the Provincial Oovernment!"
"Never heard of it I" snapped the
Mayor, and disappeared ln a cloud
of press statements.
"Well, men," sighed Carslse wearily, "we've got back our cornerstone.
Let's go!"
But as they turned to leave, a
heavy steel door fell down, blocking
the opening, the lights went out, and
the horrible laugh of Chang Suey
echoed through the darkness.
Then there was the man who waa
accused of baby talk when he said
he was reading the life of Talleyrand.
Did I write that?

HIHHIHHHHHIHMtMMHHIHHmiMIHMHHtlMllllimilllllM
By J. D. MACFARLANE
All about women . . . here's a bit
of whimsy about the fair sex as a
preface to what we will have to say
in the next issue of the Ubyssey.
This comes from the Saskatchewan Sheaf where we found it in the
column "Out of the Rib," by H.R.O.
Since last week when I discussed
the part that women are taking on
the battle-fronts of the world I have
been doing a little Investigating and
have made some interesting discoveries regarding the new activities of
women in the decreasing sections of
the world where they are still allowed out of the kitchen and the Incubator.
For instance, there is Mrs. Maria
Kramer, a rather pretty little dark-
haired woman who looka more like
a socialite than one of the foremost
hotel executives in the United Statea.
Contrary to the acoepted masculine
rule that women have poor business
heads Mrs. Kramer runs a $18,000,000
enterprise, operating two large mid-
town hotels in New York. She is
the Arst woman to ever manage two
large New York hotels, and one of
the very few to administer a business
with so large a capital investment.
• •      •
At the University of Toronto this
year Ave women have invaded the
sacred precincts of the College of
.engineering. They are faoed with the
rather overwhelming competition of
820 men students. One of these pioneers is believed to be the Arst coed to register for the engineering
physics oourse.
• •      •
This year London has given one of
Its highest honors to a woman, Mrs.
Eveline Lowe, who has been appointed chairman of the London County
Counoil. Thla office was formerly
held by Lord Snell. The Counoil consists of 144 members and controls
transportation, hospitals, schools,
sanitation, street maintenance, lighting, health and building Inspection,
Are equipment, police, housing
schemes, etc, for the largest olty in
the world.
As are the majority of English
-women active in politics, Mrs. Lowe
is a member of the Labor party and
has been a member of the council
since 1022 as the representative of
West Bermondsey, a working-class
district. There are 27 women on the
London County Council and lt was
one of the first bodies to admit women, early ln the century, on an equal
footing with men.
• •      •
The feminist movement ln Kngland
considers this appointment a major
viotory in the long struggle for equal
pay in the civil service for men and
women, for the right to hold high
executive positions in the oivil servloe, for the granting of K.C.'s to
women lawyers, and for pensions for
spinsters over B0.
• •      •
Also In the field of business is Mrs.
Kenneth B. Norton, who has been
named a trusteee of the Consolidated Edison Company, a billion dollar
utility corporation. She ia the Arst
woman to serve on the board of a
corporation of this sise.
Qualities  for
Success in Law
Counsel McTaggart
In an address before the members
of the Law Society Thursday night,
Corporation Counsel McTaggart of
the Vanoouver Olty legal department
outlined the essential qualities of a
successful lawyer, and the duties of
the legal department.
In his opinion a successful lawyer
had to have besides the ability to
InAuence witnesses, Juries and judges,
a dynamic personality and a good
reputation.
SQUARE  SHOOTER.
"The most important thing of all,"
he said, "ls to obtain a reputation as
a 'squareshooter', not only with his
clients and the newspapers, but more
so with the Judges. Such a reputation
ls a distinct advantage in the courtroom."
He dealt at some length with the
duties of the legal department.
"All claims against the city, which
ls regarded as 'fair game' by a number of persons, have to be settled by
the legal department which comprises
Ave lawyers and a number of assistants."
SUPERVISION NEEDED.
"The majority of these claims have
their origin in the schools, the Are
department, the police department,"
he said.
"Ceaseless supervision of Council is
necessary," he added, "so that they
do not act contrary to the City
Charter."
PRAIRIE UNIVERSITY
SAVES EXPENSE WITH
STUDENT ORCHESTRA
U. of SASK.—The Musio Directorate ls sponsoring a new danoe orchestra on the oampus to play at
student functions for the different
colleges, thus saving them the cost
of having to hire down town orchestras.
The campus orchestra wtll play
for a much lower fee.    The directorate feels that there Is deAnltely
a place on the campua for suoh an
organization.
The orchestra ls made up of undergrads, the Idea being to get together
and   practise   this   year   so   that   the
boys may  be  in  good  form   by  next
Fall  to  officiate  at  dances.

As we sit ln a state of horrible
boredom, writing notes and sleeping through some of our lectures
we never realise that the professors have their troubles too.
MY REVERIE.
One student of the bygone days,
however, burdened by a more sympathetic soul than that of his callous
brothers, wrote the following poem
on professorial misery:
"A PROFESSOR'S REVERIE"
"I am a Professor now.
Year after year I deliver the same
lectures
To Afteen crescents of stupid faoes,
Ood, how I hate those faces',
They seem to get more stupid every
year. . . .
Year after year, I deliver the same
lectures,
And the students take them down
In twopenny-halfpenny notebooks...
I am a Professor now.
That's why I am constantly repeating myself. . . .
I have a wife.
She ls very fat and very ugly.
I have three daughters.
They are very ugly but not very fat.
Ood, how I hate their faces. . . .
I once called my wife a rose.
That was when I was young. . . .
I am a Professor now.
Year after year I make the same
Jokes.
I watch them.
Ood, how I hate their faces. . . .
At the last examination
I ploughed Robertson
Because he laughed too loudly
At the same Jokes.

O  DRY  THOSE  TEARS.
However, this must not blind you
to your own sorrows. My chief one at

written ln 1034:
"I, who have missed no Labs  from
term to term,
And  who  have  laboured   faithfully
the while,
Plumbing the coelom of the vulgar
worm.
Or slicing clams, defunct of odour
vile,
Beg that if by unhappy chance you
see
Liver or frog with ventricle entwined,
You may pass on ln Christian charity
Nor view my fallings with a vengeful mind,
For though my feet are set in other
paths,
Prose and the spacious regency of

I needs must Aounder through a sea
of Maths
Wherein I sink for this umpteenth

And sinking cry to Sclenoe ln despair—
Add no more millstones to the one
I bear."

Since the YO-YO has left the

game of HEIDELBERG played ln the

most ardent supporters, an old pastime of the students has been revived to sweep the cafeteria.

The main. Idea of this new sport is
to try to see who can change the

swiftly, most secretly and most ingenuously.

salty taste.
Our genial waitress friend told us
that they are not fooled; they do not
mind the boys having their fun; only
it would (that is the Joke would) be
on them if there should, at some
time, be a shortage of sugar.
Poor artsmen would then lose their

HOCKEY
"Hats are off to a gritty, never-
say-dle   pucksters from across the
International   line,   who   oame   to
Spokane from Vanoouver with two
of their best players out with Injuries but played a bang-up game
from the flrst whistle to the last."
And that Alphonse is oopied verbatim  from the  Spokesman-Review
of Spokane laat Sunday,   and   case
you  don't  follow  ths gypsying tactics of your hockey heroes, the quotation has a alight allusion   to   the
battle royal  between  the   Thunderbirda and the Bulldogs last Saturday
night In the City of the Inland Umpire.
TEN-THREICr
Alright Alphonse, Just take It easy
now, and don't sneer knowingly when
we mention that ten-three score.
Sure, we know that's a basketball
■core, but aa they say in Europe,
there are extenuating olroumstanoes.
To begin with, the Blue and Oold
machine, of suoh it oan be called,
was far from top shape for the crucial Intercollegiate enoounter. And
In the seoond plaoe, an eighteen hour
ride before one of the toughest,
roughest hockey games in the history
of the hickory cudgels is not just
the thing to put a team ln Aghting
trim.
And then again, the Gonzaga boys
were playing for their Joba, and the
B.C. lads were out to do or die for
nothing more than a bit of fun and
perhaps some insurance money if
they picked up a craoked skull or
other  minor injuries.
Shut up Alphonse, my boy. You
might like a little dissertation on
rugger and suoh, but after spending
three full days in the pursuit of the
elusive little rubber diso in one part
of the country or the other, to say
nothing of the loss of a good bit of
facial epidermis, we are going to
stick to this grand old national game
of Canada's till the cows oome home.
HARMER STARS AGAIN
That reminds us, Alphonse, ol'
soak, that the greatest game big Jim
Harmer ever turned in was againat
a team that outweighed the Thunderbirds nearly twenty pounds to the
man and that played in the crudest
oave-man manner.
Jeemy Just about drove the Gonzaga rooters wild the way he checked, skated, shot and generally raised
havoc with the Bulldogs. "Oet number 12" (Gentleman Jim, no less) was
the battle cry of the spectators, but
the combined efforts of the whole
black and white team oould not slow
down.
Alright, Alphonse, let's skip hockey
and talk some basketball.

scheduled. Arts '40 play the Arst game
losers and the second game winners
square   off  with   Sc.   '39.
Rugby players prepare! The tough
Intramural battle get under way ln

hard on the wind. Oet out at noons
for at least four practices. It's the
only way to avoid "crocks." Plenty

Men of Maury Tripped by Trotters 60-34; Play
Munroes Wednesday, Adanacs Friday
Varsity cagers took a double dose of the bottle labelled
"defeat" over the weekend when they dropped a hilarious 60-34
burlesque to the Harlem Globe Trotters Friday at noon in the
gym also a nip and tuck 61-54 battle to Pacific Lutheran College
in a Saturday matinee.
The Harlemltes with their hi-de-ho
just had too muoh on the ball for
the Thunderbirda who spent the
moat of the afternoon picking up experience— while the ouhlad boya
ploked up tbe points. The suthern
pickaninnies didn't rub it in too
muoh though and kept the soore
within bounds. Close to 1200 students
—the largest crowd to ever pack the
gyb—were sent Into near hysterios
in the latter stages of the game
when the New Yorkers gave out
with their basketball vaudeville.
Everything from baseball to American Football was included in their
repertoire.
LUTHERANS LOOP   -BM
The Saturday exhibition against
Pacific Lutheran was a dinger right
up to the last S minutes. Varsity,
behind the smart sniping of Also
Luoas (that man's here again), Rann
Matthison and Don Livingstone were
in the lead at that point but unfortunately "Siggle" Slgurdson of the
visitors auddenly wwent "plum loco"
and ran In a Aook of baskets to pull
the game out of hte Are.
ANOTHER ROOKIE
Despite the setback .Maury Van
Vliet Isn't exactly crying in his soup.
The Thunderbirds are still very much
in the running of the inter-city basketball loop, and Saturday's exhibition brought to light another promising newcomer —■ Doug Alexander.
Wally Johnson was out of the lineup so Maury tried young Doug who
promptly picked off 6 points and
generally played a handy all-around
game.
Wednesday night the squad bumps
up against the aggressive Tooke
quintette in a battle that may olnoh
Varsity a play-off spot. Last time
out, the Blue and Oold went down
to defeat at the hands of the Shirt-
men when the new system of refer-
eelng waa Inflated and four of the
Varsity regulars were lost on personals. Wednesday night the boys
will be more careful, and it is expeoted that the game will be a bang-up
Aght all the way.
Probable starters will be Luoas,
Matthlaon,   Straight,   Livingstone,
and Turner with Johnson, Alexander, and Miller as reserves.
On   Friday   night   the   squad   will
Journey to the wilds  of New Westminster for their sixth game ln two
weeks against Adanacs.

MEN'S GRASS HOCKEY
BAGS 5-4 WIN
The hooked stick artists of the
Men's Orass Hockey Club, smashed
a long and tedious losing streak with
sudden abandon when they struck
with devastating effect at the forces
of the Vancouver Hocked Club (under the direction of Mayor Lyle Telford)   8-4  on  Saturday.
The giant-killing Varsity men toppled the league-leading squad by
virtue of their all-round aggressive
play  and  smooth combination.
Big blow for the Blue and Oold
artists was "Hutch" Hutchinson who
banged ln two beautiful scores, climaxing brilliant field-length combination plays. Also rans with Varsity
were Lennox, Farguy, and Thompson
with a singleton apiece.
SKI TEAM
The following men have been picked as a team to enter for the U.B.C.
Ski Club ln the Kandahar on January 29: (1) Clifford Ware; (2) Phil
Thomas; (3) BUI Sharpe; (4) Oerry
Harkely.
It is advisable that they get ln
touch with Mickey Pogue as soon as
possible.
Yea, folks, this is the guy that did
the dirty deed. We mean tbe above
gentleman is none other than Alex
Luoas, loping forward of the Varsity
hoop squad who potted 23 points last
week to set a new reoord In the,
Inter-City League. Nice goln' Luke,

The Co-ed hoopsteas are back In
town safe and sound, having tucked
away a snappy 26-13 win over Port
Alberni Alblnoes Saturday night.
The Varsity girls played only mediocre ball- they were too too thrilled
with the wonderful hospitality of the
Island town. Ruth Wllaon was high
scorer of the outfit with 9 points.
Other scores were: Alice KJos 6,
Adie Collins 2, Jean Thomson 8, Faye
Burnham 4, and Lois McEwen 2.
ALBERNI  ECHOES
Password of the Sr. A. Co-ed cagers on their weekend jaunt was "now
girls, we must all stick together."
. . . First person to wander from the
fold Was none other than the team's
chaperone, prominent Kappa and
W.A.A. pres. who was dated for lunch
ln Nanaimo. . . . Imagine the gals'
surprise and—ahem—pleasure on discovering their driver to be a Fiji,
one John McMillan. On arrival at the
Port, the girls were dispatched in
pairs to various houses, with the exception of two, Adie and Alice, who
were given a room in the hotel, and
didn't mind a bit (lt came in handy).
. . . The only member of the team
who didn't turn up at the party after
the dance 'was the affianced Victoria
girl who claims "they?" couldn't And
the house. . . . Then there ia the
Alpha Gam who spent halt the night
on the phone saying "No". . . . Jean
Thomson spent Sunday communing
with nature and another, beside
Stamp Falls. . . . Alice watched the
sun rise from the same place on the
same day. . . . Who was the fresh
soph from out of town who kept the
team waiting ln Nanaimo -while she
visited her grandmother? And what
manager discussed finance and intellectual things with the banker most
of the evening, much to the local
pals' disgust, as he'd only been ln
town   for   a   day   and   a   half   .   .   .
ICEMEN LOSE
TO BULLDOGS
IN SPOKANE
DROP      LEAGUE     TILT
TO     CUBS     FRIDAY
By CHARLIE CRAIO
U.B.C. 's hockey team met with
defeat on Saturday night when
they arrived in Spokane to play
Gonzaga "Bulldogs" with two
of .their best players out with
injuries. Although they were far
from overwhelmed, the crippled
"Varsity crew drove hard and
fast throughout the gome which
ended in a cheer for the defeated
as well as the victors.
TWO  FOR DIER.
The game began with a goal for
the Thunderbirds by Orme Dier with
an assist by Norm OUI. This started
a parade of goals by the Spokane
boys which was Interrupted only
twice by Varsity with counters by
Charlie Ouiguet, assisted by Jaok
Moxon, and another by Orme Dier
with the assistance of Marcel Ouiguet. The game ended 10-3 for the
Qulldoga.
INJURY JINX.
Outstanding performances by Jim
Harmer, Varsity centre, and by goalie
Kd Benson failed to mako up for the
loss of defenceman Angl Provensano
who, lt was discovered, had suffered
a broken shoulder ln Friday's game
and Jack McArthur who sprained his
ankle ln the same game.
CUBS WIN.
The game on Friday against the
New Westminster Cubs was also a
loss for the Varsity icemen. Lacking
the intangible something which holds
a team together the Varsity squad
didn't exhibit their usual co-operation and turned ln one of their poorest games  this season.
The game started off slowly and it
was more than halfway through the
Arst period before the Cubs slammed
ln two quick goals. A few minutes
later Varsity replied with two goals
one apiece by the Ouiguet brothers,
Marcel and Charles. The Oubs scored
again during the Arst stansa and by
the end of the seoond, the Students
were down 0-3.
FOOEY11
The third period yielded another
point for the Cubs and when the
Anal whistle blew the scoreboard
read 6-3 In favor of the New Westminster team.
FOR VARIETY
LAST MINUTE COUNTER
PUTS JR. SOCCERMEN
IN BLACK CUP FINAL
When some of the idle senior soccermen took time off from their
studies Saturday afternoon to troop
off to watch their junior brethren
cavort against the Normal School,
they little expected the thrilling enoounter they were to sae, culminating in a last-minute Varsity victory
3-2.
The overtime win puts the collegians into the Anal of the Blaok
Cup.
Trailing 1-0 through part of the
Arst half and until IS minutes from
full time, the campusmen equalized
on Howatson's drive to the corner,
only to see their hopes apparently
vanish when Affleck ln goal let a
cross from the wing get away from
him and allow the budding teachers
to take the lead again.
Undaunted by defeat which stared
them in the face, and cheered on by
a handful of lustily-yelling spectators, Yosh Hyodo's boys showed they
had the stuff champions are made of
when a combination play resulted ln
Ian Mahood scoring with 9 seconds
left to play.

HILLMEN      TROUNCED
11-3    AT    HOME
Dlspatohes from the northern front
—half a mile out of the good olty
of North Xancouver indicate that
General Carey and his mighty Thunderbirds encountered a terrific battle
against North Shore All-Blacks Saturday but managed to troop off the
battle field victorious by virtue of
having captured 11 iron men to their
enemies 3.
Although the message received by
the home office was partially obliterated, Colonel Hall and his associates, who are doing their best to
keep the home Ares burning, managed to pleoe together the following
information.
HERE COMES BRITISH!
In the early part of the battle,
just as dawn waa creeping over Dog
Mountain, Ranjil Mattu sneaked
through the enemie's defense and
raided their canteen for three beara
—er, I mean three captives.
Todd Tremblay, obviously inspired
by his pals' success looped over and
improved the former's effort by also
carting back 5 of the big ones. Just
after Tremblay's effort both aides
declared truce for lunch time.
MYRNE NEVISON STARS

Led by the brilliant performance
of inside-right Myrne Nevison who
oame through with her seoond hat-
trick  of  the  season  Just  when  It
was needed, the UJB.C. Co-ed Orass
Hookey  team  created  some  more

powerful   General   America   squad
to a 4-4 tie.
Unbeaten   and   untied   for   several

for Ave straight years, the Americas
met their virtual 'Waterloo Saturday
at the hands of one of the smoothest
and most deadly-passing teams ever
to represent the campua.

CRIPPLED SECONDS
SUCCUMB  TO  KITSIES
A    gallant    U.B.C.    rugby    team
whloh waa without four of Its regular   team   members,  went  out   on
the Stadium Saturday and gave the
Meralomaa lots to think about before succumbing 91-4 to a cleanly-
fought battle.
Tiger    Rofe,    shifty    little    Kltsy
wing-three  culminated a three-quarter run towards the end of the Arst
half for the only score of that period.
Jack  Wight  kicked  a  difficult  convert.
CARDS AND BIDDLE SCORE
The seoond halp opened with
U.B.C. pressing, but with the Meraloma baok division defending in
spirited fashion. Some long kicking
by Ooldstone and Blddle for the
Lomas began to pen the locals In
their own half at this stage and Arst
Caros and then Blddle soored beneath the posts. Both efforts were
oonverted by Wight.
A try by Hump Payne, who played
brilliantly for the Orange and Blaok
nquad throughout the contest, boosted   the   visitors   total   to   18,   Wight
falling to add the extra pointa.
An Inspired  rally  at thla stage
brought  Varsity  Into  the  scoring
column     on     Harvey     Carruthers'
beaujtlful drop-goal from 88 yarda.
Ian Richards, campus Ave-elghths,
then hit the upright wtth a penalty
attempt   and   Geodd   Mackle   was
carried off with a burst blood vessel In his thigh.
Another  try,   unconverted,  by  the
ubiquitous   Mr.   Payne   brought   the
Kltsy total to 24 just before the end.
TRACKMEN  NOTE!
Those who have track strip out
please return them pronto, as the
Track Club ls commencing its seasonal activity and would like to use
them this week. This, as usual, means
you.
