THE SESSION which is now drawing to a close will remain forever one
of the most historic -And eventful in the annals of the University of
British Columbia. The term's work had scarcely begun when the
epidemic of influenza became so serious as to necessitate the closing of College
for five weeks. Upon re-opening, we all felt sad at the thought of our depleted
ranks, death having claimed three of our brightest students. The work of all
classes was much disorganized, and everyone felt a little out of poise. But it
has been highly pleasing to see the mutual feeling between the Faculty and
student body in attempting to regain that which was lost, and to make the
present count for the most.
* *      *
Shall we ever forget November of the session 1918-19? Our University
had always been in the war in a real and effective manner. Many of her best
students had made the supreme sacrifice; traditions and precedents had been
established, of which the most venerable institutions might well be proud. It
is natural, therefore, that we should have experienced a special thrill of that
joy and satisfaction which comes with the knowledge of a task well and
honorably done. We feel proud of the part the College has played in the
greatest crusade ever entered upon by men in the history of the world. May
the students of succeeding sessions feel the same devotion and duty to the
things that are highest and best, that our University may establish as splendid
and glorious a record in peace as she has in war.
* *      *
Our best wishes to the first graduating class of the U.B.C. To be a
member of the first class to leave our halls as a genuinely University of B. C.
product is a distinction and privilege which bears with it not only unique
honors, but obligations, which must not be lightly shirked. If the University
is fulfilling a useful and noble function, it is for the graduates to demonstrate
it in unselfish service, in increased productiveness, and in a virile and honest
citizenship. Graduates, remember that the University of B. C. is an investment on the part of the State in the youth of the Province. Is that investment
paying compound interest in the development of a true and sturdy type of
manhood and womanhood? The future alone will bear witness. Success to
you all.
* *      *
It is with feelings of deepest satisfaction — and, we might almost add,
just pride — that we recall the student events of this session. When we remember the productions of the Players' Club and Musical Society, the support
given the kindred other organizations and the interest manifested in all social
functions, it is not difficult to realize that there is an abundance of real college
spirit in our midst which becomes readily responsive to sane and zealous
guidance. Would a university that was not alive to its opportunities have
filled the Auditorium to hear the splendid message of the distinguished actor,
William Faversham? A keener appreciation of the best in college life is
becoming manifest; a student conscience is gradually developing which will
create such a happy and healthy atmosphere that the University of B. C. will
ever increase in attractiveness and definite value. Page Six

Our new Professor in Classics came to us
from across the line. In 1906 he graduated
from Harvard as A.B., and in 1914 obtained his
Ph.D. from the same institution. Before coming to the U.B.C. he lectured with great success at Whitman College, Walla Walla, and
Carleton  College, Northfield,  Minn.
From Toronto Dr. Clark graduated in 1906,
later going to Harvard, where he made a special study of modern languages. He returned
to Canada in 1916 and taught at Toronto until
January, 1918, when he was called to the University of Washington. Last Autumn saw him
at the U.B.C, where we hope he shall remain
Born in Nova Scotia, our new English Professor graduated from Dalhousie College. He
came West and taught at Nanaimo and in the
Vancouver High School. In 1911 he received
his M.A. degree and in 1913 his Ph.D. degree
from Harvard. For the past five years he has
been a member of the Faculty of the University of Washington.
Prof. Barss came to us to assist Prof.
Clement in the Horticultural Department. He
studied at Syracuse and later at Cornell. From
there he went to the Oregon Agricultural College to aid in research work. He brings to
the U.B.C. a training and experience which
will prove invaluable to the Agricultural students. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

Prof. King graduated from Guelph in 1913.
The following year he accepted a position on
the staff of the Ontario Agricultural College,
which he held until his appointment at the
U.B.C. last Autumn. He has charge of the
study of animal husbandry, and has already
won the respect and confidence of the students.
Prof. Lunn is a new member of the Faculty
of Agriculture. He graduated from Oregon
Agricultural College in 1912, having previously had considerable experience in poultry
husbandry. Before coming to the U.B.C. last
year he was an instructor at the Massachusetts
Agricultural College.'
Prof. Sage brings to the U.B.C. a unique
record of scholarship. After graduating from
Toronto he continued his studies at Oxford,
returning to Canada in 1913. Before coming West, he lectured at Calgary College for
two years and at Queen's for three. Our
University has been fortunate in securing such
an able scholar and popular Professor.
' Dr. Uglow is Canadian born, having received
his M.A. and B.Sc. degrees in Kingston, Ont.,
and his M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of
Wisconsin. In four seasons, spent with the
Geological Survey of Canada, and in many
other important undertakings, he has revealed
a clear and accurate knowledge of his subject.
He is now working with Dr. Hodge in our
Geological Department. Page Ten

"They' gUve  their merry youth away
For Country and for God."
Guy Moore, a well-known member of Arts '19, served in No. 1 Squadron of
the Royal Flying Corps. He was promoted to a captaincy and awarded the
Military Cross for his work. It was during a last flight, before starting on
Canadian leave, that he met his death. This circumstance, coupled with the fact
that the cable announcing his death also contained the first intimation to his
family of his well-merited decoration, added particular poignancy to the deep
grief felt for one of the "best of good fellows."
. When Arts '19 assembled as a Freshman class, there was no more popular
member than Kenny Murray, or "Big Bill," as he was commonly known. In the"
Spring of 1916 he enlisted in D Company of the 196th Battalion and proceeded
overseas with that unit. When the battalion was broken up, he decided to take
up flying, and soon obtained his commission. Proceeding to France, he was
soon in the thick of the fighting, and had many thrilling experiences in the air.
■ In June, 1918, he was reported missing, and later as killed.
Among the students of McGill, pre-eminent in college activities was Douglas
Wright, better known to all as "Rasty." In March, 1915, he went overseas with
the First University Company, joining the Princess Patricia's in France. In
June, 1916, he was invalided to England, having been severely wounded at Ypres.
Upon recovery, he was given his commission, and returned to France, where he
fell on August 12, 1918, while leading his platoon in an attack during the battle
of Amiens. In army, as in college, he was loved and respected by all who knew
him. Fearless, and cheerful under all circumstances, he was a gallant soldier
and a true gentleman.
"Johnny" Stewart was a youthful member of Arts '21. Before completing
his first year, he joined the R. F. C, and went to Camp Borden to begin his
training. He had completed only three months of the work when he contracted
scarlet fever, which proved fatal. Though only a first year student, he was one
who will remain long in our memory.
Bruce Hillis, or, as he was popularly known by his fellow students, "Boner,"
was a member of Science '20. After finishing his first year, he joined the R. F. C,
and trained at Deseronto. He was at the Front but a short time before he was
shot down, in July, 1918. Quiet and unobtrusive though he was, regret for his
death is no less sincerely felt by the students. Page Fourteen

Old members of that class of McGill days, known as Arts '17, will recall a
quiet, thoughtful lad called Duncan Lawson. When the Great War broke out,
he was among those who joined as privates in the 196th Battalion, later being
transferred to the 46th. In one of those gigantic offensives in France which
closed the war, he gave up his life. But, although he will not return, we will
remember him as one who, in all his words and works, proved himself to be a
sincere student and a loyal soldier.
Gerald, or rather "Shorty," was a member of Arts '20. He enlisted in the
R. A. F., in September, 1918, and went to Toronto for training, where, within two
weeks, he contracted influenza, and died on October 12, 1918. With Gerald's
death, U. B. C. lost one of her most brilliant students, for although he was just
eighteen at the time of his enlistment, he had already reached his third year,
and had shown every prospect of future greatness. His friends and fellow
students will never forget his cheerful manner and good nature.
Leaving in the Fall of 1915, D. J. Trapp, or "Don," as he was familiarly
known, joined the Engineers at Ottawa, although he had originally intended to
enlist with the "Princess Pats." He served in France with the First Divisional
Canadian Engineers until July, 1917, when he returned to England to train as
an aviator. After qualifying, "Don" returned to France, where he served with
Bisby's famous squadron. He was reported missing last July, on his failure to
return from an expedition. A former member of Arts '18, his loss is deeply felt
by a large circle of University students.
"Charlie" graduated from the U. B. C. in 1916. He was the first man to
join the B. C. Company of the 196th Battalion, later being drafted to the 46th,
and reaching France early in 1917. He was wounded slightly at Vimy and, more
seriously in October of that year. Upon recovery he received his commission,
but, a few weeks afterwards, was reported killed in action at Cambrai, September
28th, 1918. Lieut. Duncan was one of our best known students, having taken
an active part in all college affairs, especially in the Players' Club. He was one
whom we would so gladly welcome back; an alumnus who, had he lived, would
have brought honor to his Alma Mater, as he has done by his death.
A native of Sandwick, Vancouver Island, Robert Duncan came to McGill,
B. C, as a member of Arst '16. After remaining two years, he gave up college
in favor of Normal. He enlisted and went overseas with the 102nd Battalion,
and was killed in action the day after his cousin, Charles Duncan, on September
29th. Page Sixteen
U.B.C.    ANNUAL,    1919
(Students decorated since our last issue.)
An old member of Science '20, it was with the greatest joy that this sterling
soldier was welcomed back into the student ranks. "Sid" was wounded on July
4th, 1918, during an engagement in which he covered himself with glory and
earned the Distinguished Flying Cross. The official record of the action that won
for him this decoration contains the clause, "This officer displayed remarkable
courage and determination."
Earle left Vancouver with the 196th Batt., but, because of his age, transferred
to the R.F.C. Within a month of his twentieth birthday he was killed in action
August 12, 1918. For saving his squadron by an exhibition of coolness and daring,
Lieut. Stewart was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, but, unfortunately,
never lived to receive the honor. By his O. C. he was considered the best
observer in the squadron.
Another member of the 196th Battalion to receive a decoration is Sergeant
Morley Timberlake, who was awarded the Military Medal in February, 1919.
Sergeant Timberlake left Arts '18 to go overseas with the Universities Battalion,
but was transferred to the 46th, with which unit he served for two years in
France. When the armistice was signed, however, he was preparing to take his
Eric M. Coles, a former member of Science '20, has recently been decorated
with the Distinguished Flying Cross. In January, 1917, he joined the Royal Air
Force, and has since then had many exciting adventures in the air.
Arts '18 has still another medallist in Perry Hamilton, who was awarded
the Military Medal last Fall. Perry went overseas in 1916 as a gunner in the
Artillery, and remained with that branch of the service until he was wounded
during the engagements of the Summer of 1918.
W. A. DAWE, M.M., M.C.
"Bill"—as hundreds of boys overseas and at home loved to call him—has
had a most brilliant career as a student-soldier. In June, 1916, for conspicuous
bravery and devotion to duty on the Somme salient, he was awarded the Military
Medal. Again, in February, 1918, he received the Military Cross as a result of
his splendid leadership in a night raid on Vimy Ridge. Through sheer merit
and ability, "Bill" rose from the rank of a private to that of captain. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919 Page Seventeen

THE OFFICERS' TRAINING' CORPS has received more attention and
been subjected to greater criticism this session than ever before. The
justice of much of the discussion is a matter of individual opinion, and
it is not for us to condemn or condone the general attitude of the student body.
Suffice it to say, that on application to Senate, drill has been removed (temporarily) from the list of compulsory subjects.
During the past four years, the C. O. T. C. has fulfilled a necessary and
honorable function in the University. From its ranks have gone forth scores of
young men, better equipped for the great tasks before them because of their
early training in the Corps. These student heroes have brought distinctions and
traditions to the U. B. C. which will be cherished as long as history remains.
It cannot be denied that the C. O. T. C. justified its existence in a highly creditable
manner in a time of great crisis. And, if the war had continued, it is safe to
assume that the men would have continued to support the corps, even more
heartily than in the past.
Upon the signing of the armistice, unrest and discontent among the men
became very evident. We never had had a proper drill ground; the uniforms
were unfortunate fits; enthusiasm and efficiency appeared to languish together;
the cancellation of drill orders at Toronto and Queen's intensified the situation
here. It was not surprising, therefore, that this feeling culminated in a petition
to Faculty requesting the abolishment of all compulsory drill. With due deference
to all those concerned, we feel certain that the policy of the Senate will be
considered the wisest and most reasonable that could have been adopted, under
the existing conditions.
Western llttiopraitira' ftmrirr Qltob
BACK in December, 1917, twenty former members of "D" Company, of the
196th Battalion, who had returned to the city, met at the Hotel Grosvenor.
They decided to form a club of 196th men. A number of returned students
of other units were invited to the next gathering, and it was then decided to
extend the membership of the club so as to include all university students or
ex-students, resident in the province, and who had served in the C. E. F., or on
active service with any unit. It was hoped that similar organizations would be
formed in the other Western Universities.
Since that time, the Western Universities Service Club has held many
meetings, several dinners, and one dance. The membership has been steadily
growing, and now numbers about sixty. The officers for this year are: Honorary
President, Capt. Sheppard; President, Capt. Whittaker; Secretary-Treasurer,
C. C. Ferrie.   The other members of the Executive are H. Miller and H. Letson.
Although the club, as yet, is but young, its purposes are surely being crowned
with success. The idea of forming a sort of student fraternity, which would
spread to the Universities in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and Manitoba, and thus
foster a happier spirit of good-fellowship in soldier-student circles, was a splendid
and inspiring one, and will undoubtedly manifest itself in an ever-growing organization, which will, in turn, become of greater service and helpfulness to
college men. Page Eighteen

WE ARE A TRIFLE PROUD of the work carried on by the University
Red Cross during the war. Each month we have been able to forward
a satisfactorily large shipment of socks, pyjamas, and housewives; and
this last year we have added to our list certain surgical supplies for the local
military  hospitals.
The funds of the society have been increased by a regular monthly collection
of 25 cents from each student, and thus it has not been necessary to repeat
the college tag-day, or the famous "punkin" pie sale of last year. Owing to this
affluence, it was possible, at Christmas, to contribute $100 for the purchase of
Xmas gifts and flowers for ward IV in the Military Annex; to donate $100 to
the Red Cross Drive, and to buy six suits of underwear for the men in the
local military hospitals.
During the "flu" epidemic, in spite of the large number of members engaged
in nursing, the society was able to make over 300 "flu" masks and sixty-five
pairs of pyjamas.
Our latest venture is to "adopt" ward VIII of the Military Annex. This
.entails visiting the men and ascertaining their wants, which are filled by the
Canadian Red Cross Society. The University branch supplies such extras as
candy, flowers, and cigarettes, and endeavors to make life more pleasant generally
for the men. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

FOUR years have gone, the time has come to pass
To write the annals of this noble class;
The theme, I fear, will quench my trembling muse,
To write or not to write, I cannot choose.
O, come!    Parnassian deities sublime !
Sustain the faltering footsteps of my rhyme!
But let not this poor verse the Muses blame,
Let rhymes from Walker be my means to fame!
In nineteen fifteen, that auspicious date,
We entered college in a virgin state.
What favor was it given us to be
First Freshman class of this, our U. B. C.
An innocent class, perhaps a little green,
Yet not unripe as some we since have seen,
For we have found, as swift the years have passed,
Each Freshie group more vernal than the last.
Behold at least our outward aspect, grave,
Since those, who could, at once began to shave.
The gentler sex take on a gayer mien,
And sparkle forth where once they bloomed unseen.
O! these were happy times, when one recalls,
No knickerbockered youngsters thronged our halls;
Nor yet did maidens fair, with reckless shears,
Cut off their pretty locks about their ears. U. B. C.   ANNUAL,    1919 Page Twenty-one
Our next year gave us full excuse to shirk,
Too busy, being sophomores, to work.
Warned by the poet kind, we knew no trouble,
But left our books for fear of growing double.
Released from fond, misguiding apron-strings,
Our greatest joys are those the Orpheum brings;
We pour libations to the gods of pleasure,
And leave off learning to some future leisure.
Save but a few, who, through some eccentricity,
In study waste much midnight electricity.
Our Junior year comes onward with rapidity,
We leave behind our former insipidity.
Each rising member of the class becomes
A frantic "picker-up of learning's crumbs."
But still for fun and pleasure always ready,
Our only grief was: writing "comps." for Freddie.
But now our college days draw near their end,
All former foolishness we far transcend.
The Senior's rank is manifest by his gown,
He trails his clouds of glory up and down.
His noble brow with burning genius glows,
One small head scarce can carry all he knows.
Revered by Juniors, Freshies, and by Sophs,
Surpassed in knowledge only by the Profs.
Shall such a class be ever lost to fame,
Yield to posterity an empty name?
Shall Willie Sutcliffe soon forgotten be
By "fellow stoodents" of the U. B. C?
Shall Evelyn's eloquence and Marjory's smile
Sink to oblivion in a little while?
Ah no!   'tis certain through the future ages,
These names shall decorate historic pages,
School teachers, socialists and statesmen pass
In proud succession from this noble class.
Alas!   my muse is faint, I cannot write,
Rejoicing, I behold the end in sight.
And yet no greater grief can come to me,
Than leaving with this class, the U. B. C.

Stye Alumni Aaaortatum
WITH THE GROWTH of the University, the Alumni has been increasing in size—and, we hope, in power; but to many minds it is nothing
more  than a weary institution  for graduates.    We have  endeavored
here to express some of our aims and ideals.
In spirit, aim and practice we remain one with the University, and no
restrictive powers accompany membership. Our constitution places no bar
on the bluntest of free thought and speech, and our gradually formulating
schemes for the future relate to a study of all new laws that might affect
student life.
This year the Alumni is working upon a plan of action which shall contain
their ideas of how they may co-operate in student affairs within the College
so as to be a help, and to avoid the least appearance or reality of interfering
or imposing upon the undergraduate societies. Another branch of our work
is keeping up an active correspondence with the Alumni Associations of other
colleges, through which we hope to keep the Alumni of U.B.C. in the van of
all improvements, and to reap the fullest benefit of comparison and contrast
with them.
One of the hardest problems which must be faced is that connected with
active work among the various members with a view to keeping alive their
interest in the Society, despite the drawbacks arising from their being scattered abroad at different occupations, and the difficulty of continuous or
adequate communication with them. We are anxious for new ideas about
making our general meetings attractive, and, at the same time, efficient. It
is by no means desirable that all the discussion, as well as all action, be in the
hands of an executive; but this same difficulty of keeping in touch with the
members renders it especially hard to avoid.
The Association is, moreover, desirous of lending definite aid to the
reconstruction programme throughout Canada. All the educational bodies are
allying themselves with this movement, and it behooves the Alumni to do all
it can to take a leading part in it.
The dearest ambition of the Society is to assist in combining the wishes
of the student, Faculty and Senate, and to coalesce the spirit of these three
bodies, so that British Columbia will speedily take a prominent place in
Canada as a University Province.
We wish, too, to assist in raising a suitable memorial for those who have
fallen in battle; and we hope always to bear in mind that for our Society to
have been born in war-time, even as was our University, is an asset. We have
all acquired a priceless heritage in the sacrifice of our fellow-students and
comrades. It is, moreover, a heritage that entails the responsibility that
we help each other to live as they have lived, and respond to all the higher
influences of life.
The greatest privilege the Alumni can have is that of helping any undergraduate during his College course or afterwards. Then we wish to encourage
all students to fight for steady and unremitting progress in U.B.C, and we
wish to help in that fight in any and every way we can.
• These are the aims, nebulous though they be at present, and we are
anxious for student co-operation and student constructive criticism at all
times. Page Thirty-four U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919
CLOUDS, mist and 6 a. m.—the North Vancouver Ferry Wharf—a group
of young people gradually increasing in number. As I approached I
was able to discern the variegated features of the members of Arts '20.
Just as we were about to board the 6:20 ferry, Mr. Wood and our golden-
haired young President arrived breathless. As the boat pulled slowly away
from the wharf, the familiar forms of Miss Morrison, Miss McGee and Miss
Swincisky materialized from the morning mist which enshrouded the pier.
"Punctuality is a species of constancy very unfashionable among the young
ladies of the West," sighed our Honorary President. His ruffled feelings were
soon pacified, however, when Patricia Smith enquired regarding the position
of Oscar Wilde, as a modern dramatist. "It is untenable," growled Johnny
Berto. Retiring to an unoccupied corner of the boat, Mr. Wood spent the
rest of the trip discoursing on this subject to several of the initiated—Miss
Nowlan, Miss Hill, Miss Smith—and particularly Daphne Scharschmidt and
Agnes Kee, who gazed soulfully into the face of their mentor.
Feeling as though I was committing a sacrilege, I left this hallowed spot
and walked forward to where Weld and Siddons were singing and otherwise
annoying the captain and crew. On the way I passed McClay, who was
buying his daily supply of chewing gum, and, incidentally, making the
acquaintance of the sales girl.
A moment later a weird and awful noise caused us to look up, and there
was Peebles playing a tin whistle. He calmly informed us that he was playing the "Misery" from "II Trombone."
When taking the car on the North Shore, a peculiar catastrophe occurred.
Doc McKechnie became wedged in the car door. Finally he was forced to
remove overcoat, dressing gown and three sweaters before he could enter.
At this point Miss Morris, Miss Alexander and Miss Irvine disappeared. A
motor car (Ford) with three young men in it had passed shortly before. Of
course there was no connection. During the ride on the car Miss Day orated
on "Men as they are, and as they should be."
After starting the climb a heated discussion arose. Coates wanted to help
carry the girl's blankets and sweaters (Oh! those sweaters!) He was bravely
supported by Hokkyo, but Nelson objected strenuously. The result was that
some did, and some didn't.    Mr. Wood did; Keenleyside didn't.
With many rests, we reached the plateau about 11 a.m. Coates and Colgan
immediately lit a fire. Nellie Ballantine provided a little excitement here.
Venturing too far from the beaten path, she disappeared head foremost into
a snow bank, whence she was finally rescued by the great exertions of Swincisky.
Now the luncheon was set out by Beth Abernethy and Helen Matheson.
As a delicate and subtle compliment to our Hon. Pres., the meal consisted of
Boston Baked Beans.
Turning from this scene, I beheld Mr. Wood, Peebles and Marjorie
Day seated on a log.   What they were discussing I do not know, but I caught U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919 Page Thirty-five
the words "superfluous perigrinating technicalities" from Mr. Wood. In
answer Peebles remarked, "But, Sir, the diaphanous draperies of ... "
Marjorie looked fearfully bored and we heard her interject, "Come on-n-n,
Red!" after which there was a pregnant silence.
Later, Weld was heard saying something to Miss Pillsbury about a
"marvellous damask complexion."   My dear Johnny!
After luncheon we separated for the afternoon. Mr. Wood and Mr. Couper
drew seven girls apiece, the other boys one, Keenleyside none. Finally Miss
Inrig took pity on the latter, and they indulged in a ferocious snow-fight.
During the afternoon the two Misses Roy hunted for geological specimens.
They found one ten-pound "cephalopod" in a bed of "silurian slime," which
they carried home between them. What was it Dr. Ashton said? "In this life
they were not divided?" Evelyn Lucas disappeared with a volume of Wordsworth, and was not seen again until supper-time. McKinnon spent a large
part of the afternoon shaving, before an interested audience.
While sliding, Nellie Ballentine lost a boot-heel, and Siddons volunteered
to find it. Then, however, he lost a nickel from the class funds which he was
carrying. He searched for it, in vain, until dusk, when Miss Darner, seeing
him look inconsolable, graciously gave him five cents of her own.
At the witching hour, Mr. Wood appeared as a gypsy fortune-teller. What
did he tell Miss Gladwin that made her blush so? And why did Katherine
have that dreamy, far-away look in her amber eyes? Jean Davidson came out
looking greatly disappointed, but Couper looked as pleased and important as
a judge. Later, we tried to sleep around the fire; but Miss Fournier, Miss
Porter and Miss Coates kept up such an infernal clatter that, finally, all thought
of sleep was given up. I took the opportunity to ask Mr. Wood what were the
most prominent characteristics of some of the young ladies (I mentioned Miss
Gilley), and the reply was, "Sarcasm."   I wonder why, Janet?
Next morning we decided on a race as far as Trythall's. Marjorie Day
had sprained her angle the previous day, so Weld offered to carry her. Hokkyo
won the race; but, by virtue of his length of limb, despite his additional
burden, Weld came second. The last to descend were Miss Harris and Mr.
Adams. The latter was reciting to his companion a few lines of his own,
entitled: "Sonnet to the Distant Spires of North Vancouver."
At the foot of the mountain a great commotion arose—Beth's vanity case
was missing. A search was instituted. Weld deposited his fair burden, carefully, on a pile of leaves, and started back up the mountain. Later, he returned
with an empty vanity case; but, in the meantime, a mirror and powder-puff
had been discovered in McKinnon's pocket.    Oh, George!
We then proceeded to the car-line. The last thing I noticed was Lorice
Stirk trying to borrow a car ticket from "Taddy" James, who appeared very
loath to part with it.
On the way down, on the car, Miss Grant and Mr. James were seen making notes for the "Annual." Those which Miss Grant wrote seemed to be in
verse, and to be largely connected with professors.
Unfortunately, nothing is perfect. Three of the young ladies of the year
were unable to persuade themselves to take part in our trip. Miss Copping,
Miss Draper and Miss Ada Smith possessed such pronounced views on the
characters of the male members of our "year," that their consciences forced
them to remain at home. Despite our disappointment, however, we managed
to enjoy the company of the less particular members of the class. as

"Our College life is but a stage
and all our men and women merely players."
WITH CHARACTERrST4i"W-IVACITY, Dr. Ashton, our honorary president, drew attention to
the part played by our class in the programme of College
activities. After introducing the class executive (Anders,
president; Miss Wright, vice-president; Miss Kilpatrick,
secretary; Miss Coates, literary representative; Munro,
literary representative; Argue, treasurer), our idol made
his exit to the strains of the orchestra. The pianist (Forrester) and the violinists (Miss Goldstein and Fink) were observed in the group.
After this opening, the curtain rose on one of the bi-monthly meetings of
the Junior Economics Club, where many of our year are wont to assemble for
discussion and argument. Schell and Solloway were nobly defending their
cause against Misses Blakey and Gilroy; whilst the office-bearers (Lord,
president; Miss McConnell, vice-president; Rive, secretary, and executive
members, Miss Hamilton and Peardon) attempted to maintain order.
Certain members interested in Rugby, basketball and hockey now displayed their prowess. In hockey were noticed Misses Herman and Hopper;
while in basketball Misses Coates, Kilpatrick and Lawrence were prominent.
As for the men, Lord, Fisher, Taylor, Smith, McLean and Osborne starred
in basketball; the football enthusiasts being Denham, Mitchell, Fink, Grim-
mett, Lynch, De Pencier and Russell.
The next turn, highly intellectual in tone, was a debate carried on by
members of the Women's and Men's Literary Societies. Miss McConnell and
Miss Coates were loyal champions of their sex against Denham and T. Preston. Miss Munro, Miss Lett, Fournier and Ingledew took part in the heated
discussion that followed.
Several members of the Players' Club lent a professional air to the performance. Miss Adams caused the tide of emotion to swell in the hearts of
the men by her betrayal of the coy damsel "Theda," while Mr. Lord played
the impassioned lover to perfection. In customary cinnamon attire, Mr.
Faulkner flitted gracefully around.
The assembly was then permitted to view a combined session of the
Y.W. and Y.M.C.A. executives. Mr. Webster, as chairman, deplored the
fact that women were attending the meetings, thus detracting from the
religious fervor of the young men. Cribb volunteered to increase the attractions by rendering a few hymns; while Miss Wright, supported by the women,
offered inducements to attend the classes.
Suddenly there was a wild scuffle and an inspiration rushed in, pursued
by the editors of the Annual Board. For a moment confusion reigned; but,
finally, order was restored by the efforts of Miss Cowan and Argue.
The latest film releases were now flashed upon the scene. First came a
group of our famous newspaper men. Rive was seated in the centre; and his
able assistants, Webster and Peardon, were on either side, while Cribb
reposed gracefully at his feet. Amidst thunderous applause the well-known
faces of our returned soldiers, Rive, Lord and McLeod, now were seen.

fO CAREFUL ANALYSIS is necessary to realize the
importance of the Freshman class this session. First
among us are those who, after serving their country
overseas, have returned to resume their studies in the U.B.C;
there are others who have distinguished themselves by reason
of their literary or athletic ability; some valiant souls there
are whose youthful ardor no disastrous Chemistry experiment can chill, and whose brave and persistent optimism
no Physics marks can daunt. Still, there are a few whose
magnificent spirit of self-sacrifice deserves honorable mention. These latter
martyrs, although totally uninterested in the down-town shows, nevertheless
enter therein that they might advise their more eager friends regarding the
merits of the play.
We were fortunate in securing as honorary president Dr. Sedgewick,
whose genial personality and sound scholarship have endeared him to the
entire student body. Jack Shier, by his diligence and activity, has proved
himself a valuable president Messrs. Darts, Wrinch, R. Hunter, H. Hunter
and Parker have distinguished themselves, respectively, as vice-president,
secretary, treasurer, athletic and literary representative.
The class has taken a very active interest in College affairs. The successes
of the Rugby and basketball teams have been largely due to the support received
from Arts '22.
BEFORE MENTIONING some of the personages of our year, we wish to
pay tribute to our honorary president, MRS. CLARKE, who has shown
such a gracious interest in all undertakings of Arts '22 girls.
Hats off to our president! ETHEL LIVINGSTONE, the popular leader
of our year, is an enthusiastic member of the Players' Club. Her vim and
ability insured the success of all class affairs. NORA WILLIS, our vice-
president, is also an industrious worker in the Y.W.C.A. cabinet. A patient
extractor of coin from the dilatory Freshettes is MAE McMYNNE, whose
sweetness, only, made her persistence tolerable. CORA METZ, Mae's noble
ally in debate, is especially eloquent in English 2, as Mr. Wood has discovered.
We all hold dear our energetic class reporter, KATHLEEN KNOWLTON,

rF IT HADN'T BEEN FOR THE FLU," is the way almost everyone begins
when   describing  any   activities,   and,   although   this   excuse   would   probably
hold good in our case, we will refrain from using it, for our activities have
been as successful this year as in any previous. .
In order to promote the spirit of camaraderie and good-fellowship between
its members, the Science Undergrad. held its second annual smoker—we presume
that we can call this an annual habit now. The Professors told good stories,
destroying thereby the barrier of formality which may have existed, and a
splendid programme of songs, music, and readings was given. As usual, a lively
discussion completed the evening's entertainment.
In December, shortly after our enforced holiday, the Society met, in an
informal way, in the common room, to try and condemn several  law-breakers.
This proved so successful that a constitution for a Science Court was drawn
up and passed at a general meeting. This court has enforced obedience to our
laws, both written and unwritten, and has been instrumental in maintaining an
excellent spirit of sportsmanship and fair play.
• Throughout the year, also, various trips to the Orpheum have been made by
the Science in a body, and on February 14th the First Year celebrated by having
a box party, followed by a dinner at the London Grill.
The members of the Executive of the Society have done a great deal of
work this year, and have brought about many beneficial changes. At the beginning of the session, by repeated "kicking," they managed to recover our long-
lost common room. They were also able, after some effort, to have the timetable arranged so that all were enabled to indulge in athletics on Tuesday
afternoons. The drawing up of an official constitution was a very tedious
business, which they carried through efficiently, together with the constitution of
the Court. After trying hard to secure the rink for a skating party, they were
forced to abandon the idea; so instead, decided to hold a monster smoker in the
Hotel Vancouver.
This year, instead of seeing our best men leave us, as in former years, we
have had the unique pleasure of welcoming back several of our men who have
been fighting in France. Mr. Harry Letson, M.C, is now completing his fourth
year; Mr. Wilson and Mr. Walker are in third year, while first year boasts of
five veterans—Mr. L. D. Shaw, Mr. Gray, Mr. Handy, Mr. Houghton, and Mr.

AMERICA has been called a melting pot.   The same term can be applied

J. W. REBBECK, the President of the class, never seems to do a great deal
of work, yet, like a true engineer, he has the happy knack of always finishing his
job, and finishing it well.
GEORGE GILCHRIST, the President of Science, is a very punctual man.
Promptly, at five minutes before the hour, he produces his pocket alarm clock—of
high speed, triple-expansion type—and by setting the ponderous machinery in
motion, creates such a clattering and jangling that further lecturing is impossible.
"PINKY" MORRISON has yet to lose his temper; his cheery good-fellowship
seems to continue from very early Monday morning to very late Sunday night.
HARRY ANDREWS is the crammer. He can go out every night, and still
do his work.
Anyone desirous of a little pugilistic practice should interview E. H.

BEING A MERE COLLECTION of Sophomores, we are, as our label
would indicate, only half wise and half foolish; hence we cannot be
expected to produce an article that would stand as a literary exhibit
alongside those of our more enlightened brothers from the Arts' side of the
fence. We offer this, therefore, neither as an excuse nor an apology; but as
a cold, scientific fact.
Collectively, we are rather noisy upon occasions, but hope to get more
dignified when we reach the highly-exalted plane of the Senior year. Our
diversion is the Orpheum; and our pet aversion is hard work, such as breaking
our thumbs while trying to connect a hammer with the head of a cold-chisel
during shopwork. Apropos of this, some of us have actually been heard to
say things, under the influence of this demonstration of a simple law of
Having thus introduced ourselves, we shall proceed with a more personal
note of the members, individually, trusting that the sketches of such a noble
class will prove an inspiration to the succeeding generations of students.
With due deference to his position as president of the gang and leader in
scholastic attainments, we shall open with C O. Swanson, one-time "mucker,"
etc., at Anyox, B.C. His occupation during last summer serves to uphold the
statement that distinguished scholars do not always land in soft jobs. As
further proof of this, we mention that F. L. McDonald amused himself by
pouring oil on troubled bearings and the rest of the time walking about looking wisely. Melville, alias "Spex," is a mining expert who bids fair to rival
even the noted Swanson. His chief object in life during Survey School was
to hunt for garnets. Parks was an indispensable element at the survey work
last summer. His propensities in the matter of a simple little card game are
the worry of his fellow-classmates. Thomson likes to argue with Parks upon
any subject more or less familiar to both of them. Steadman is clever, and
looks as though he ought to be a genius anyway. Walker and Wilson are
old-timers who are back from the big scrap and are starting in again at college
work. Walker was a member of Science '15. "Chemistry" Waun is our member from the Orient who is taking a partial course in Chemistry and Surveying. "Dutch" Eckhart works so hard that he hasn't time to shave. The
result has been a perfect "Charlie Chaplin," which serves well as a camouflage
on the Rugby field. The practical electrical experience of H. Doyle makes
him especially desirable as a "lab." partner in Physics 2. He is still as competent as ever with the pen and brush, having dropped more than one blot
throughout these pages. "Bob" Anderson has sustained the honor of the class
by holding down a position on the forward line of the basketball team. After
taking Summer Survey School, Jane decided to study aeronautics with the
R.A.F. He also mixed in a little bacteriology by way of a German-infected
shaving brush. Kingham avers that the summit of success is to sell electrical
toys. His persuasive powers, which have been so highly developed in his
capacity as prosecuting attorney in the Science court, ought to make a good
salesman of him at least. Gill has been busily employed throughout the year
as "lab." instructor to a certain person in Chemistry 2, and, in spite of fabulous
offers to exchange desks, has remained firm at his post. Page Forty-four U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

1. And lo! it came to pass, in the year in which the ruthless Hun was driven
back into his own lands, that a certain tribe of Freshmanites did migrate from
the groves of the Willow to the land of the Laurel, amid great jubilation.
2. And forthwith they did multiply and wax exceeding mighty.
3. And many there were from far countries, for they did come from Prince
Rupert, yea, even from New Westminster.
4. And behold! this tribe was of such fierceness and the new land so fraught
with dangers that but one woman and one child did follow—she that is called
Rona, and the child Morris.
5. And, verily, she wrought cunningly with her pen and labored long.
Therefore the tribe waxed wroth and was sore.
6. But there came a mighty man of valor, Anderson by name, who flew with
the eagles and sought the hand of the damsel; and the sons of the tribe cried
aloud in their anger.
7. And there were certain other tribesmen, to wit, Gray, Handy, Tuckey,
Banfield and Houghton, who were great and mighty warriors, who had travelled
to far countries and brought great glory to the tribe by chasing the Hun and
other insects.
8. And there was a scribe, by name Peck, who with his pen did make a
mighty work. And the chief of this tribe, by name Evans, did trample it under
foot. And the scribe was wroth and spoke fiercely, saying, "Go to, for as it
sayeth in the constitution—."
9. Another son of the tribe there was who called himself Hynd. And this
man had taken unto himself a wife, unto whom he was greatly devoted, and spent
little time with the other tribesmen.
10. And there was a son of a Scot, by name Mike, and he was proclaimed
cunning at drawing. Whereupon another of the tribe, Thurston, rose up in his
wrath saying, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, if this drawing be three aces, surely
it is a pernicious evil."
11. And there were two men, the sons of Moody and of Shaw, who were
reputed to be men of great wisdom, for seldom did they speak.
12. And there were yet two other members of the tribe, one who is called
Somerville and the other Kidd, who walked circumspectly before the elders.
13. And lo, verily, there was one, McDougal, he who is called Spitz, who had
been of great strength, but who, even like unto Samson, had been shorn of his
locks and clean shaven, yea even to the back of his neck.
14. And there was a certain wise man of the tribe, Shokeley by name, who
did excel all the other sons of the tribe in wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
15. And, behold! another there was of the tribe of Gorenson, of a fair and
ruddy countenance, and beautiful to look upon.
16. Now there came a Philistine of the tribe of Hebbites who, at the Christmas festival, made a mighty onslaught, and many heads were brought low.
17. But, with all their many tribulations, the tribe wrought steadily and.
flourished mightily and became the envy of all surrounding nations.   ■

In Arts they teach you nothing
You can't learn by yourself,
By concentrated study
Of the books upon your shelf;
But in the Agriculture course,
They fill one's empty dome
With many things that can be
To make a happy home.
An Agriculture student
Will ne'er fall to ladye fair,
Unless  she  has  some  brains  beneath
Her mass of lovely hair;
Biology does warn us to
Beware of wedding bells,
Since lovely hair and wondrous eyes
Are only made of cells.
We take a motor ride each day,
If we are feeling bored;
We travel in a limousine—
For us, no measly Ford.
At dances and at teas we shine-
These things we never shirk.

AWAY back in what seems now like a previous existence—so changed is
our visage and disabused is our mind—we entered the University with that
wistful wonder and silent dread which makes the atmosphere of a freshman class so exhilarating and reverent. Like the astronomer, "when a new planet
swims into his ken," we became almost hilarious as it dawned upon us that we
had outgrown our swaddling clothes and were free from the spoon-feeding system of the public school.
To-day you will find us going about the halls, no longer, as in freshman
times, like a lonely man at a lonely furrow, but with the air of one who knows
that he is a member of a great and growing family, the welfare of which should
be his constant concern and the success of which should be his chief joy. As
faithful children we have a feeling of pride in our Alma Mater, and the quiet
confidence that she is pegging out claims for posterity by sending out to the four
corners of the land men with red blood in their veins, the light of knowledge in
their eyes and the pride of a democratic people in their heart. The sense of
solidarity which has gripped the minds of men everywhere has not passed us by.
A feeling of brotherhood and the desire to make the common good the common
aim is being created and fostered in our college life, and carried by our students
into the life of the nation.
Since the signing of the armistice, an event which profoundly moved the
entire student body, some of the important questions, which have filled the press
and engrossed the minds of thoughtful people throughout the world, have had a
large place in the daily discussions around the halls. The birth this session of
two economic discussion clubs is, in itself, an indication that the students are
following closely the great movements which are shaking and shaping the modern
world. There has been nothing finer in our college life for many sessions than
the inquiring attitude, the splendid idealism, and that mingling of intellectual
violence and moral courage which has found expression in the past few months.
Some of our students are passing through a day of doubt, but it is that
honest doubting which is the first step to sincere believing. In refusing to accept
outworn creeds or become enthusiastic when obsolete shibboleths are pressed
upon them, they are merely intimating that they are more than chunks of flesh,
and that their soul is not to be soiled by musty traditions or their feet guided
by those who have no prophet vision.
Living as we are in a day when the message of the prophet and the dream of
the poet of the past is being fulfilled, it is not surprising that there have been few
pessimists among us. We have all felt that we are standing on the threshold of
a new era; that spring is in the air and in our blood, and that the best traditions
of the race and its future has been placed in our care. Hearing the hum of reconstruction, and confident that virgin soil is being turned in the land that will yet
flow with milk and honey, we face the future with hope and courage. From the
corridors we have gathered the impression that the students have been thinking
this session, and will send out at its close men and women who are strong, yet
tolerant, generous, but sane, a credit to the college and an asset to the commonwealth. —J. D., '21. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

W. G. McClellan was a man—and had already played
a man's part in the history of his country. Frank, impulsive, idealistic, he was one of the most lovable men
one could hope to meet. The University misses him
already; it will miss him more and more, and the students,
as a body, will never know how much "Micky" had
undertaken in their behalf—and would surely have accomplished had he not been called away so soon. U. B. C.
is proud to have him among her students, proud to
have his name on the Honor Roll.    Micky is frequently
mentioned, with affection and respect, and his example will not be forgotten by
generations of students to come.
Among the first victims of the influenza epidemic
was Horace Stedman, of Science '19, whose death was
deeply felt by students and Faculty alike. Circumstances
had imposed on young Stedman severest limitations, but
these were accepted cheerfully. With rare courage he
overcame what would have broken the heart of many a
young fellow. His modesty and self-forgetfulness concealed from all, save a few intimate friends, the pain of
his life. His ability as a student was well known, and
in the college his thorough work won for him the highest
regard of all the instructors. The student body and the Faculty unite in paying
a last tribute to the memory of one who lived among us a brave, simple life,
determined to know what was true, and to do what was kind.
The influenza took from us one of the finest and most promising young
men who ever entered the University. "Wilf" Moore, as he was popularly called,
was a keen athlete and former student of K. E. H. S., where he was a prime
favorite with both students and teachers. At the commencement of the Fall
term, Agriculture '22 elected him class president, and it was with deepest regrets
that its members, and his many other college friends, heard of the death of one
who promised so much, both as a student and a jolly good fellow.
David Murray was a graduate of Britannia, and entered the University in
October, 1918. It was in January of this year that the dread epidemic overcame
him. Although not athletically inclined, Dave more than made up for it by his
keen appreciation of things literary, having appeared in several of the plays of
his old High School. Page Fifty

A SPLENDID revival of interest in debating and public speaking has been
evident this year among the members of the Women's Literary Society.
The debate between Arts '21 and '22 set a remarkably high standard. The
subject "Resolved that all Orientals, except Hindus, should be excluded from B. C."
was well dealt with by all four speakers. After a most interesting discussion,
the decision was given to the representatives of the First Year, Misses McMynn
and Metz, by a narrow margin over Misses McConnell and Coates. The Senior-
Junior debate has not yet been held.
Three much appreciated addresses were delivered before the Society during
the session. The first, by Dr. Sedgwick, dealt with modern verse. At the next
meeting Professor Robertson spoke on "The struggle between the North and the
South," and told how this war was the third great clash between the old civilization of the Mediterranean and its foe from the North. The next meeting took
the form of an illustrated lecture on the Holy Land, by Mr. Munnings.
Many difficulties have been experienced this year, but Miss Darner has proved
a capable president, guiding the Society safely through all its trials and tribulations. The other members of the executive, Misses Gilley, Brenchley, Roy, Ketcheson, Smith, Coates and Browne worked loyally to ensure the success of the
meetings. The literary work of the Society has maintained a high standard, and
future members will find that the foundation upon which they must build has
been well and truly laid. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

THROUGHOUT the session the aim of the Men's Lit. has been to foster the
intellectual life of the student and to encourage public speaking. On
November 29th, the first inter-class debate was held, the subject being
"Resolved that the lot of the common people of England was improved by the
Industrial Revolution." The affirmative was upheld by Messrs. Denham and Webster of Arts '21 and the negative by Messrs. Coope and Wrinch of Arts '22. The
debate was well contested, the decision being given finally to the affirmative.
Representatives of Arts '19 and '20 met on December 17th, and discussed one of
the foremost questions of the day—"Resolved that the allied forces withdraw
from Russia and Siberia." By a splendid presentation of their case, Messrs.
Hosang and Mahrer gained the decision for the affirmative over Messrs. Adams
and McKinnon, representing the juniors.  -, .,-

THE THIRD YEAR of the Musical Society has shown a great increase
in attendance and enthusiasm. The society now consists of a ten-piece
orchestra and a men and women's glee club, whose membership has been
augmented to one hundred. The year has been very successful, not only because
of the personal benefit received, but also because of what the society as a whole
has accomplished.
As an essential feature of University life, the Musical Society should interest
every student. For those who have been faithful members, have not only added
to their knowledge and appreciation of music, but have also benefited much
from the physical exercise. Mr. Russell has spent many years in acquiring
the correct method of voice production, and we feel exceedingly fortunate in
having him as our director. He believes that the Musical Society has an important part to play in student life, and if the members continue to supplement
his zeal and enthusiasm with their interest and support, there should be little
doubt as to the club's success in future sessions.

to afford a harmless outlet for the energies of the embryo orators,
reformers and statesmen whose abilities had not full scope for expression in the ordinary lecture-room. It is an entirely informal affair, and, to
preserve this informality, its membership is limited.
Although it is named a "students'" Club, the name was meant to include
all those individuals who are inclined to thoughtful study of economic problems and interested in the discussion of present-day topics. That people
outside the student body appreciate such aims has been demonstrated by the
fact that among its active members are two University professors, and the
speakers of the session have included the Rev. Mr. Thomas, of Wesley Church,
and Mr. Woodsworth.
Mr. Thomas spoke on "A Quaker Employer's Policy," while Mr. Woods-
worth chose as his subject "Labor Unrest." The other topics discussed during
the winter were: "The Position of Great Britain in the Proposed League of
Nations," "Bolshevism," "Immigration" and "Reorganization of the British
The discussion by members, other than the chosen speakers, grew more
interesting and spirited as the more modest persons gained courage enough to
interrupt the eloquence of the incurably loquacious; and a social evening, in
company with the Junior Club, was a fitting climax to the winter's work.

THOUGH, perhaps, the most active of the student societies, the Junior
Economics Discussion Club was organized only at the beginning of the
session. Dr. Boggs is our honorary president, but this does not prevent
him from taking a lively interest in our affairs. The five people that are
responsible for the formation of the Club are now on our executive: Art
Lord (president), Miss McConnell (vice-president), Alfred Rive (secretary),
Miss Hamilton and T. Preston Peardon. In the course of the session such
subjects as "The Freedom of the Seas," "Bolshevism," "An Economic Boycott
of Germany" and "Minimum Wage Legislation" have been well debated. If
some of us, because of our youth, are inclined to be radical in our opinions,
or, as Denham would say, "not far from the kingdom," there are others of us
led by McClay, our "hypothetical capitalist" and identical with Mr. X. of the
classroom, who are ever ready with opposing arguments. Much talent has
been brought to light, and Fournier, Solloway, Miss Hopper, Miss Blakey and
Miss Matheson have made most efficient chairmen. As speakers on Economic
subjects, Miss Smith, Miss Brenchley, Miss Gilroy, Schell and Boss have
proved themselves not lacking in ability. As for outside speakers, we have
been very fortunate in having Mr. Makovski and Mr. Sutcliffe address us. Page Fifty-eight

DURING the last weeks of the summer, a group of University girls, assisted
by Miss Lowe, the new Western Student Secretary, planned the "Y" work
for the coming year. At Whytecliffe, where a carefree atmosphere of good
fellowship prevailed, it seemed easy to run a University "Y," but the unforeseen
events of the college session played havoc with the girls' plans. However, in
spite of the difficulties, the members of the Cabinet have worked quietly and
faithfully to carry out the purpose of the "Y."
The Cabinet wished to create an interest in Foreign Missions, relating this
field of endeavor to Social Service. They decided to confine themselves to the
study of India.
At the first general meeting Dr. Jessie Allyn spoke on "The Women of India."
This meeting was followed by a series of discussion classes, in which two books,
"The Renaissance in India" and "Peoples and Problems of India" were studied.
Under the leadership of Mr. Trumpour, who generously gave us the benefit
of his broadminded and scholarly intellect, the Senior Bible Study Class has met

TOO OFTEN a college Y. M. C. A. is considered the meeting-place for
theologues, while the student body, as a whole, remains untouched. During
the past year our society has endeavored to be of service to every man
in the University, and subjects and speakers have been chosen to meet the
individual needs of every student.
s At the first meeting, the President, Mr. Webster, outlined the policy for the
year, and Professors Henderson and Wood spoke to the members. At later
meetings, Dr. McKay, Dr. Gillespie, Alderman Hamilton, Father O'Boyle, and
others delivered addresses on various topics, such as "Reconstruction," "Sex
and Manhood," and "Good Citizenship." The success of these meetings could
be seen in the increased attendance and interest shown.
During the latter part of the term, under the leadership of R. F. Adams,
Arts '19, a Bible class was conducted, which discussed, as a text, the Book of
John. Several interesting meetings have been held, and it is hoped next year that
the class will commence earlier.
Together with the other Canadian universities and colleges, U. B. C carried
on a campaign to raise funds for the education of Asiatic students in Canada,
along the lines of Y. M. C. A. work. The idea was that these students should
then return to their native land, to carry on the work there. Our objective was
fixed at $1,000, and while the campaign, at the time of going to press, is not yet
over, it is expected that a substantial amount will be raised for this fund. Page Sixty

SINCE its establishment two years ago, the Chemistry Society has occupied

commenced early in the year and have been carried on energetically under
the able leadership of Mr. Vollum. The aims of the society have been to gain
information and to stimulate an active interest in all branches of science; and if
success may be inferred from a large increase in the membership and well
attended meetings, our club this year has made splendid progress toward accomplishing its purpose.
In the death of H. G. Steadman the Chemistry Society suffered a great loss,

THE study of wireless has long been a favorite hobby among University
students. It was quite natural, therefore, that a small body of men in
our college, after being properly inoculated with the radio germ, should
become sufficiently interested to organize a wireless society. A meeting was
held soon after the new year and a temporary executive appointed to draw up a
constitution. Immediately interest and enthusiasm became manifest, and, when a
meeting was called to receive the report, over forty students were in attendance.
A permanent executive was elected and plans for the session discussed. The
club has been recognized by the Alma Mater and been granted a club room in
the physics building. Because of a splendid donation to the college by the Canadian government, a large quantity of modern wireless apparatus has been available, making possible immediate instruction.
Membership is open to both men and women students. In fairness to the
executive, it might be stated that the purpose of this decision was not to present
an attractive inducement which might appeal to the young men. The women
students are wholly responsible, for it was early evident that the fascination for
the subject of wireless extended far beyond the ranks of men alone. The
association has experienced a happy birth, and if the enthusiastic spirit so fai
manifested may be taken as a fair criterion, the success of the radio club is
assured for future sessions in the U. B. C. ARTS DANCE
A VISITOR TO THE UNIVERSITY on the afternoon of Friday,
January 10th, would have been surprised to see a number of coatless,
collarless and grimy young gentlemen rushing about amid a maze of
gold and blue streamers. Benches were propelled in all directions, doors were
flung open, and the professors' desks were ignoininiously relegated to odd
corners. Three hours later a very different scene would have met his gaze.
The streamers were in place, and festoons of bunting obliterated all suggestions of lecture rooms. The occasion was the annual dance given under the
auspices of the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society.
The evening, as a whole, was a decided success. As is natural in a
university which is growing at the rate that U.B.C. is, the accommodation was
found to be inadequate. Nevertheless, "the more the merrier"; and the guests
enjoyed themselves. The patronesses of the evening were Miss Mclnnes,
Mrs. Klinck, Mrs. Clark, Mrs. Matheson, Mrs. McLean, Mrs. Robertson, Mrs.
Robinson and Mrs. Jordan.
INSTEAD of the usual class party, the members of Arts '19 were entertained
by Miss Gintzburger at her home on Saturday, February 8th. The class
was unanimous in declaring this the most enjoyable party that the students
of the graduating class have had during their university career. Delightful
Valentine games had been planned, and prizes were awarded the proud winners. Mr. Shaw, however, is of the opinion that the one drawback to winning
a whist prize is that an impromptu speech is demanded by insistent classmates. As president of the class, Mr. Fraser expressed to Mr. and Mrs.
Gintzburger the appreciation  of the  students for the  kindness  shown  them.
Arts '20 is most noted for. Nevertheless, even those familiar with this
fact were surprised by the success of the class party held on January
25th. By the time Mr. Peebles had disposed of all the articles, auctioned for
the benefit of future Freshman classes, and several original class songs had
been rendered, all had recovered from their first shyness, and the real business
of the evening (dancing) was entered into with zest. Tag and medley dances
added to the interest of the programme, while—much to the satisfaction of
all—the pianist was generous with encores. An original touch was supplied
by the be-aproned waiters who served the refreshments. Dancing continued
until the night watchman arrived, with his keys, bidding the revellers emulate
Cinderella and depart on the stroke of twelve. U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919 Page Sixty-three
THE first social event of our college year was the Freshman reception.
Invitation rites being over, this function was held in honor of the Freshmen under the management of the Students' Council. The guests were
received by Mrs. Wesbrook, Mrs. Klinck, Mrs. Robinson, Miss Evelyn McKay
and Mr. Sutcliffe. The first part of the evening was taken up with musical
selections, a speech from Dr. Sedgewick, and, of course, with introductions.
Then cards and dancing were in order until midnight, when this most enjoyable college "affair" came to an end.
ONE of the most successful functions of the session was the class party
of Arts '22. The patronesses of the evening were Mrs. Clarke, Mrs.
Robinson, Mrs. Sedgewick, Mrs. Elliott and Miss Mclnnis. The matter
of introductions was uniquely managed by arranging the young ladies around
the room, leaving an empty seat beside each. Soon, in came the martyred-
looking gentlemen, and dutifully took their seats. However, "looks are
deceiving," and all enjoyed the "conversats" to the utmost. These were
followed by cards and dancing. About 11 o'clock, supper was served; and the
head waiter—no less a person than Dr. Sedgewick himself—came forth with
refreshments unsurpassed in quantity or quality.
On March 14th, Arts '21 held its class party. There were no awkward pauses;
as soon as the guests arrived, everyone was kept busy filling out programmes for
the dance. Games were provided for those who did not dance, and all spent an
enjoyable evening. An interesting feature of the programme was the moonlight
waltzes, for which the face of a moon was flashed upon the ceiling. After the
supper-dance, the doors to the next room were thrown open, revealing a long
table, tastefully decorated with daffodils. After refreshments, the guests were
entertained by a piano selection, from Miss L. Coates, and solos by Miss Healy.
UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS, the Lord of the Ubyssyrians led forth
his mighty host. Valiantly they charged the slope, captured the drawbridge, and took the mighty citadel by storm. In armor, brilliant with
blue and gold, they swept the streets, scattering a bewildered foe; nought
could stem the tide. Foremost of all pressed the brave son of Morris, called
Rufus, to right and left, severing the trolleys from their wires as he passed.
With piercing war-cries they attacked the Castle of the Wealthy, taking that
stronghold by storm. In a violent effort to rescue one "fair" maiden, they found
it necessary to pursue "her" for some distance, but finally were successful.
Eventually they reached the theatre of war and took possession of Gallery
Heights, from whence they bombarded the opposing forces on the stage and
the audience below with serpentine and confetti. So far as it is known, there
was only one casualty—an unfortunate "man" falling out of one of the upper
boxes into the pit, his head being nearly severed from his body, and the floor
strewn with straw. During the show the house was much enlivened by college
songs and yells, and when it was all over the troops sallied forth to pillage
Arbor and Bungalow. Page Sixty-four

RUGBY TEAM U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919
Page Sixty-five
[N other years, athletics in the University of British
Columbia were under the control of a single Athletic
Association, but in the spring of 1918 it was decided
to form two bodies for the government of sport. Officers
elected were as follows: Men's Athletic Association—
Honorary President, Mr. P. H. Elliott; President, Mr. D.
M. Morrison; Vice-President, Mr. A. G. Meekison; Secretary, Mr. R. G. Anderson; Treasurer, Mr. R. J. Munro.
Women's Athletic Association—Honorary President, Dr.
'^*tA E. T. Hodge; President, Miss M. B. Cameron; Vice-President, Miss M. E. Kilpatrick; Secretary, Miss L. Swencisky; Treasurer, Miss O.
The influenza epidemic played havoc with rugby in Vancouver this year. The
City League, in which 'Varsity was entered, quietly expired, and the only game
played before Christmas was that with the V. I. A. A., in Victoria, on Dec. 21.
The trip created considerable enthusiasm, and the fifteen were accompanied by two
basketball teams and about eighty supporters. Under the coaching of Art Lord
a strong team was assembled. 'Varsity played a good game, but, through hard
luck and lack of practice, were held to a scoreless draw.
After the holidays the team twice defeated the Civilians, to the tune of 5-0
and 8-0. Kingham, the full-back, was laid out in the last game and forced to quit
rugby. It is proposed to make another trip to Victoria, to play the Foundation
fifteen.   University, so far, has not had a try scored against it.
The 'Varsity lineup is as follows:—Full-back, Kingham; three-quarters, Morrison, Ross, Darts and Broadfoot; five-eights, Ternan; halves, H. Gwythers
(captain) and Russel; forwards, Gross, V. Gwythers, de Pencier, Weld, Allardyce
(vice-captain), Gunning, Meekison  (president)  and  Swanson.
The Men's Basketball Club was handicapped at the beginning of the season
by being unable to obtain a gymnasium for practice. When King Edward was
finally secured, the team was only able to use the floor for two hours a week.
The prospects of a good team were enhanced last fall, with the return from
overseas of two former 'Varsity players, "Sid" Anderson and "Art" Lord. Under
the captaincy of the former, the following players represented U. B. C. throughout
the season:  Lord, Taylor, Andrews, Gross, S. Anderson, Fisher, R. Anderson.
The first game of importance was against the Victoria "Y," when University
visited the Island in December. The 'Varsity suffered from lack of practice and
lost to their more experienced and heavier opponents. After Christmas the team
entered the Senior City League, in which it made a fairly creditable showing.
The officers of the Club are: President, C. D. Taylor; Vice-President, G. R.
Martin; Secretary, L. J. Fisher; Treasurer, H. Andrews. s
s U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919 Page Sixty-seven
The chief attraction this year in women's basketball seems to have been in
the coach. Mr. Lord's untiring patience with the team, and his skill as a player,
have been an inspiration to all those who have turned out to the practices. The
first team consists of Misses M. Kilpatrick (President) and D. Kerr (Captain),
guards; G. Pedlow, centre; E. Eveleigh and K. Stuart, forwards.
There have been great difficulties in securing a gymnasium in which to practice. The K. E. H. S. gym. was finally obtained, but for late in the afternoon.
Perhaps this accounts for the comparatively small number of girls who have been
attending the practices.
For this and other reasons, which prevented the girls from organizing until
very late in the term, they have not been able to do their best work, though they
have the makings of an excellent team. Moreover, the players have not been
encouraged by the support afforded them by the students.
University has entered the league against Crofton House and Normal, and
several games have already been played. 'Varsity won the first game against Normal with a score of 25-20, but lost the second to Crofton House, 8-16. The next
game with Normal resulted in a draw, 9-9. The team took the trip to Victoria,
where they were defeated 12-6. An enjoyable evening was spent there at the
Empress Hotel at an informal dance given in honor of the U. B. C. players.
This is soccer's first year at the University. Though the Club was not organized until late in the term, the players have been practicing regularly, and have
played one game with an outside team, holding Spencer's to a two-all draw.
U. B. C. was represented by the following team: Goal, Keenleyside; backs, Swen-
cisky, Ferguson; half-backs, Mitchell, Reid, English; forwards, Cameron, Adams,
Greer, Denham, Taylor. The executive is composed of: Captain, A. Swencisky;
vice-captain, R. Adams; manager and secretary, H. Greer.
Shortly after Christmas, Mr. P. H. Elliott, of the Science Department, was
approached with a view to forming a boxing club. A meeting was called for the
election of officers, when the following were chosen: Hon.-Pres. and Instructor,
Mr. Elliott; President, H. O'Hagan; Secretary, J. Shier. A membership fee of
one dollar was fixed. The club later obtained the use of Chalmers gymnasium
for Tuesday evenings. The membership is now thirty, which augurs well for
next year.
The past season has been a successful one for the University Tennis Club.
Four courts were obtained for the summer at King Edward High School, and
they were in constant use. The Honorary President, Dr Clark, offered a cup for
competition among the men members, while Mrs. Clark offered to donate a similar
one for the ladies. However, as arrangements could not be made for carrying
out these proposed tournaments, they had to be dropped. Page Sixty-eight U. B. C.    ANNUAL,    1919

PIERETTES AND PIERROTS, gipsies and Hawaiian princesses, ladies
of the court and dandies of the 20th century — such were among the
merry guests of the Women's Undergraduate Society on the evening of
March 1st. Revelry was in the air, and the dances were encored again and
again. After supper, Miss Mclnnes presented the prizes for the best costumes. Time took wings unto itself and flew so quickly that no one was
ready for the home waltz, when the janitor appeared on the scene to lock up.
With marked reluctance, the motley throng of lords and ladies, ghosts, gipsies
and peasants melted away, leaving only echoes of their laughter to haunt the
hall with memories of a most successful entertainment.
PLAYERS*  CLUB (Continued from page 55)
As Mr. Worthing, Mr. A. Lord portrayed very successfully the serious, steady
character of Cecily's guardian. Mr. G. Scott was evidently in his element while
interpreting the part of the gay young Algernon. Miss Highmoor, as Lady Bracknell, added a notable success to her former achievements. Miss Janet Gilley and
Miss Dorothy Adams, by the excellency of their acting, quite captured the hearts
of the audience. The other members of the cast are also to be complimented for
their splendid work.
The proceeds were given to the University Memorial Fund and the Vancouver
General Hospital. Too much credit cannot be given to Prof. Wood, honorary
president and coach, for his unceasing activity and interest in the club's behalf.
Thanks are also due for this year's success to the business manager, Mr. J. C.
Nelson, and the conveners of the various committees.
MUSICAL SOCIETY (Continued  from  page  56)
The annual concert was held on March 28th, in the Hotel Vancouver, the
proceeds being devoted to the Wesbrook Fellowship Fund. A special feature of
the programme was the rendering of a group of college glees, containing our
new U. B. C. song, composed by Messrs. Coope and Mahrer. The entertainment
maintained an unusually high standard throughout, and reflected much credit
upon the musical talent in the University. J.   E.   HUGHES,   Manager

detail. New railroads are
opening up in this Province
(Canadian Northern, Grand
Trunk Pacific, Pacific Great
Eastern, Canadian Pacific,
Great Northern, Northern
Pacific, Kettle Valley, Canadian National Railways), and
these railways and others will
require operators in the near
future, which will increase
the already large demand for
experienced operators. The

rpHEY WERE MADE FOR US from serge we requisitioned more
than a year ago. Now a man can come in here and compare them
with serge suits at $45.00 of this Spring's vintage, and be convinced of
the saving we have made for him. Such serge as these suits are made
of would cost in the neighborhood of $7.00 a yard at wholesale to-day,
so you can figure what a bargain they are at $32.50. And they are
made by a good concern, who have never failed to satisfy us with

may rest assured that at whatever price they pay, from $1.25 to $2.75,
they will get the best value in town. Practically our entire shirt stock
was bought ahead in order to take advantage of the better cloths and
better prices then offering. To-day our $1.25 shirt is equal in every
way to the quality offered by manufacturers to sell for $1.75, and
others are proportionate. It is an axiom well-founded that you can
