I am the Annual;
I am what I am made,
Success is little to me—
'Tis not enough to succeed:
And   more   than   the   work   of
many hands,
I am also the product of Work:
The Spirit of this University,
And Spirit succeeds,
Because  it   lives . .  .
And I also!
—I record and proclaim
—I   remind  and  inspire.
Year in, year out, I live
I am the Annual!

There are cheaper so called

must admit Purdy's still lead the
field. Where a quality chocolate
is most sought and bought—there
you will find PURDY'S the leader.

&tgtmtur?0 "Only the Unthinking consider
Photography but as a Handmaid of Vanity"
HE ART of the Photographer joins the Science of the laboratory with the Sentiment of the Heart
producing that which makes a universal appeal—a picture with a meaning.
IJ Photography preserves for us the youth of our children. It jogs a fading memory of days gone
by and brings vividly before us loved faces out of the past. It holds for us imperishably the friendly
greetings of fiose who have " gone ahead," acts as the standard-bearer of Dan Cupid, aiid assuages
the pain of absence.
€| The smile of a child,  the shy confession of a girl beloved, the eyes of a husband or the heart of a wife,
live, uumarred by Time, only through the magic of lens and film.
IJ In   this, the age of Commerce, gold will purchase most that the heart holds dear; but not everything.   It
is a thought worth remembering that your friends can buy anything you can give tliem except-yourphotograph.

Page Fourteen H preface
As a record of a year of work and play— of good
sportmanship and good fellowship, the Annual is
dedicated to the graduating class of 1922.
It is a memento of their last year in this Uni-
versity, a year that has seen many failures perhaps,
yet—we are confident—it has also seen new and
worthy precedents established, and unselfish effort
expended for the unifying and improving of this University of ours, so new, so crude, yet—
"We are faulty—why not? we have time in store.
The Artificer's hand is not arrested with us; we
aie rough-hewn, nowise polished."
Page   Fifteen Though we have done the best we could
We can not even surely see
If good or evil it may be—
We merely trust that it is good.
Bewildered, we must blunder on .  .  .
And yet by transmutation strange,
Our outlook undergoes a change,
Our former attitude is gone.
But all these theories, I fear,
Impinge upon philosophy,
Whereas I should review, you see,
Our undergraduate career.
Well then: we are the final link
With U.B.C.'s foundation year,:   •»
When we arrived, the seniors l^re
Were her first freshmen—only think!-
The pioneers who had been game
To 'carry on' in Fairview shacks,
"A year or two, since money lacks.
The war conditions are to blame."
Page Sixteen Yet we have had experience
Far more instructive and unique,
Of which in days to come we'll speak
With laudatory eloquence. ,  *
The features we have been denied
Are really only pleasant 'frills,'
Such luxury as sometimes kills
What it should cultivate and guide - -
The truly fundamental thing
The inward, spiritual light,
Although the phrase is vague and trite
The fact is real and solacing.
And in full measure 'it is yours'
If you have will to see and take
What is provided for your sake—
The unseen treasure that endures.
To our professors be the praise,
That they have steadfastly upheld
The torch that from our eyes dispelled ,
Much of the truth-concealing haze.        tjf.
And so henceforth our aim shall be
To cherish light and seek the best,
And vindicate, when put to test,
Our Alma Mater worthily.
Page Seventeen
Their hardy spirit might have won
More influence on 'twenty-two'
Had not the outbreak of the 'flu
Stopped everything we had begun.
Our first term wrecked by this mishap,
We reached the rank of sophomore
And all its dignity, before
We overcame the handicap.
But then a fortunate event
Restored our class to grace again—
From overseas a scare of men
Returned to swell our complement.
The picked men of each former year,
They brought maturer judgment back
And wider vision, to attack
The problems that confront us here.
And now that our degree is earned,
And we're dismissed, without reprieve,
What is the message we would leave
To summarize what we have learned?
This, that in spite of all we've missed—
Building, equipment, campus, all
The things some folk are wont to call
The reason colleges exist, DORA ELLEN GERTRUDE PYE.
''She is wise, if I can judge of her;
And fair she is, if that mine eyes be true.
And true she is, as she hath proved herself."
The fact that Dora has adopted  the  French  language  as  her  native
tongue has not prevented her from gracefully filling the office of secretary
to the  Classics  Club.    Her  sense of  humor has  gained her  many friends
and she is indeed one of the most charming girls of Arts '22.    We expect
great things from Dora.
Winnie somewhat tardily yielded to the lure of the West for it was
not until our sophomore year that she came to us from McMaster College,
Brandon. Although slightly reserved, her bright sense of humor and her
ability to tell a joke have won her many friends here. But she is not
without her resolution for we hear rumors about dancing and 12 p.m.
"To haunt, to startle, and waylay," particularly as she balances on her
toes at the end of the diving board, and then "swallows" through the air
(that's how Edna dives.) Edna usually succeeds in showing the rest of
us up in April, but we won't complain, because she has such a taking
wav with  her
Ralph is not '"Don't" nor any relation, but—he doesn't. Though square,
he is an all-round good fellow and popular. He is often found in the
Orchestra extracting music from the Bass Viol, and he delights in tinkling
the ivories—keys and cubes. Last year he led the Tennis Club through a
very successful season.    Honours in Math, complete his college career.
Jack is strongly in favor of co-educational institutions. He claims the
other sex has a hallowing influence on us^ancT as Jack is an excellent
authority on such matters we hesitate to cefute his arguments. Sine
coming into Arts '22 in 1920, Jack has taken a keen interest in class activities and as atliletic representative he has been most assiduous in getting
his classmates out to rugby games and other dangerous pursuits.
From decorations earned in France to the distinctions of high executive
office Johnny has worn his honours gracefully. Energy effectively applied
has made him a fixed star in soccer, basketball and rugbv. When the
McKechnie Cup team plays, the reporters always notice McLeod. An
occasional debate and his many social obligations leave a little time for
class-work. He holds the Presidency of the Arts' Men and the ascendency
over those in Agriculture.
Page Eighteen HELEN KEIR.
"Of hir smyling she was ful simple and coy
Hir gretteste ooth was but by seynt Loy.'
Although Helen emigrated from Scotland since 1880 she is possessed
of some strong Scotch characteristics. One cannot read from her face
the strange adventures among strange people and strange insects which she
has had while teaching in the holidays. At college she goes in for cafeteria
teas but her favorite sport is mountain climbing.
"I am weary unto death." Three years of college life was enough for
Helen, but with her famous tenacity of purpose (observe our tact f) she is
back again this year to finish her Honour course in Economics or become
an anarchist in the attempt. But her sense of humor remains unquenchable,
even by theories of the State. She prefers hikes to lectures and mustard
sandwiches to any other food.
"A spirit full of pleasant brightness."
Muriel is indeed endowed with a cheery disposition coupled with sparkling wit. She is a true friend with a good word for one and all. May it
also be whispered that she is a splendid dancer and is always ready to
"tickle the ivories" at certain opportune times. We regret to see. though,
the disappearance of her chic little curls indicating that she is now a regular
Bob is our traveller par excellence, having taken two years at Toronto,
siesta in California!! and far Eastern air. Visitors to New York, Bob and
Charlie are much attached to Broadway The ball-room and the necessitv
of having to walk after one a m. keep hiin in condition for Senior Basketball where he is indispensable. Many sad hearts will wish that U.B.C.
could offer our movie-hero a course in medicine.
Bert is developing fast in a variety of ways. He began as a fag for the
college publications and now he is the big boss. He has even managed to
find a barber to his taste but alas! the brilliance of his blush is fading.
Although he is not ashamed of New Westminster he prefers to stav in
town where he may have the opportunity to cultivate a romantic interest in
the drama.
"Size is always a consideration."
Beecher's college career was interrupted first by a prolonged stay in
France. Then the same spirit of altruism involved him in a motorcycle
accident and prevented him from graduating last year. He has been a welcome acquisition and has lent an imposing dignity alike to labs., and
lighter diversions where it is obvious he is general favourite with both
sides of the class.
"Queen of Hearts"—'s fact. The lucky man drew it. He took Gwen
to the dance.    They don't order "coffee and pistols  for two" anymore,  so
a deck of cards, two eager youths, and But this is not Gwen's sole
claim to fame. Her athletic prowess is proverbial whether it be in Badminton, Basketball, Hockey or as a Tennis champion. As President of
Women's Athletics last year she performed excellent service on the Student's
Council, while the Players' Club has found Gwen a friend in need.
"O them dimples and that auburn hair." But in spite of these handicaps, leave it to her to get her own way. By way of another little experiment, just try to shake her from her own opinions. But to be serious she
does work sometimes. To counteract the evil effects of studying she has
gone in for skating this year—and incidentally she manages the Swimming
Club and acts as secretary to the Gymn Class.    Pet hobby—a snappy time.
"Ah. why should life all labour be?"
Izeyle is one of the better known members of the class, possibly because
she always sits in the front row—Mr. Wood may know other reasons. She
has won fame for her numerous devices for killing time, of which, judging
from appearances, dancing is the most efficient. At the same time she gets
through the exams, periodically. When as we separate from each other at
this milestone of our education, we all wish her happiness in future days.
Bob began with Arts '20. He is—and we are. too.— glad that he stayed
out a while. He has won distinction for himself and reflected glory on
the class every time the tennis season rolls around. During the rainy season
he works a little at a variety of subjects, goes the glad rounds, but never
loses his coat of tan acquired through long summers of luxurious ease by
the sea he loves so well.
''In spring a young man's fancy . . ." *■'
Jimmie joined us in our Sophomore year?"having taken his freshmah
year with '21. He is an active supporter of all class athletics and has college spirit to spare. Although one of our youngest members, Jimmie does
good class-work and has won the "Odd" scholarship. He specialises in
History and warbles in the double male quartette.    'Nuf sed.
''A man used to vicissitudes is not easily dejected."
"You may relish him more in the soldier than in the scholar."
Paul does not say much but he is there when needed. He began with
Arts Umpteen, branched into Science, went teaching, tried soldiering and
then returned to Arts. Last year as chief of publications and this year
as President of the Alma Mater Society he has been one of the most active
men in the university.
"My tongue within my lips I rein ;
For who talks much must talk in vain."
Owing to her retiring disposition, many of us have been unable to become acquainted with Doris, much as we should  like to.    As  she  is  fond
of reading, books take up a great  deal  of her time and attention.    She is
deserving of every success that we can wish for her in the future.
If you were told that Isobel had held responsible positions in many
student activities, especially in the Students' Council, the Player's Club,
and at the top of examination lists, you would know only half the story.
For the rest, picture to yourself a girl quick to sympathise or to admire.
Picture brown eyes that during lectures seem to indicate a solemn devotion
to studies. Awful deception ! And O ! when she dances, the dainty tilt of
her heels.
"Laughter holding both his sides."
Doris is one of those exceptional individuals who work and play with
all their might. Besides acting as a substantial pillar in the S. C. M., she
has lent her aid towards enlivening the discussions of the Economics and
Social Science clubs. Her happy looks belie her ability to digest the pro-
foundest problems of philosophy—as well as lunches. But without her over-
bounding energy no college function would be complete, whether it be a
rugby game, a dance, or an evening in the stacks.
Art refuses to disturb the rest of the class with his own doubts and
fears which he possibly contracted while with Arts 20. Only when the
sternest necessity compels him to make a reference he leaves the environs
of science, and then he is too intent on escaping from an unaccustomed
civilization to bandy idle words. Yet there is times when we are inclined to
think that our "li'l Ahthu'h" is a dark horse.
After taking his Freshman year with '19. Lloyd decided to wait for his
present associates who promptly elected him to the class executive. When
the finances of the Arts Men or the fortunes of the Musical Society permit,
he may be found in one of the research laboratories discussing the dangers
of an honest man in much company—especially mixed company Howe\er,
don't expect his example to be altogether consistent.
"Nescit vox missa revcrti."
George joined our class in the Sophomore year. Since then he has
shown an active interest in all forms of college activity. George's specialty
is debating, having engaged both in international debates and the supervision of them. He has received his letters for Yell Leader, is a member
of the Letters Club, a conscientious and successful student and has great
faith in Epicurus.
"Impetuosity, honesty, naivete"
Pete is our cosmopolite. We know no clique in Varsity of which Pete is
not a welcome member Her interests are as widely varied as her friendships—class executives, Women's Lit., Players' Club. Pete has given originality and pep to them all. She made a most charming political speaker, and
should never have any difficulty in gaining votes. But what we love her for
most is her wit and artless candour. Pete? A memory that sticks and
Worth looking at. worth listening to. worth befriending.
Cora is our popular vice president. She has many admirers among
those who appreciate staunchness, sympathy and ready wit. The latter has
often got her into trouble, for the deliciously solemn way in which she
"kids a fellow" is rather dazing at times. AntLjier "Efficiency Plus"! Yet",
did you ever catch her missing a dance, skating party, executive meeting
or rugby game?    Cora, what is the secret?
Bertha is one of the brave few taking an Honour Course in History.
She is also a member of the "Historical Society." It is a recognized fact
that Bertha shows most enviable taste in selecting the various color combinations for her in numerable knitted sweaters. For this, and for her wonderful coiffure she has been the "cynosure of neighboring eyes."
"And as for me. though that I can but lyte,
On bokes for to rede I me delyte
So hertely that ther is game noon
That fro my bokes maketh me to goon."
Lionel is one of the "intellectuals."    Always near the top in his classes
he  is   also   Senior  Editor  of  the   "Ubyssey"   and   a   poet   of  promise.   As
President of the Letters Club he has an ambition to fill us with the love of
Art for Art's sake.
"Mortals that would follow n*e —"
We look to Bill as vice-president of the tf.Y" to keep us in the straight
and narrow path and to shun the comfy Way. His \ iolent reaction to
Sophomore English began his career as a moral reformer; and his activities
have brought down storms on his devoted head. This session, under
President Black's guidance, the Sigma Delta Kappa has enjoyed success.
He may be safely trusted with anything.
A belief in names is sometimes unfounded but if we believe in the last
syllable of Cliff's name as applied to him the "worth" will not be found
wanting. He has here conscientiously pursued the abstract in the domain
of mathematics and psychology. His firm belief in the seriousness in work
and love, has saved him from the maelstrom of society. We trust his successful class debating experience will stand him in good stead as he fares forth
to unravel the intricacies of theorems, logs., and sines to our budding
Helen came to U. B. C. a few years ago with her hair down. Going away
with her hair up and a B.A. tacked to her name she will be as shining an
example of a U. B. C. graduate as she has been of Arts '22. Generous doses
of economics and history have not ruined her cheerful disposition and as
proven by her marks she shows ability in writing history essays.
"A stately mien, rebuking frown, symbolic of a new-earned gown."
Norah was originally a member of Arts '20. Finding a course in
philosophy necessary to the equilibrium of married life. Norah joined Arts
'22. We hope she'll make practical use of her course in 'banking'. Her
gown and married state lend her an air of dignity behind which is concealed
the sweet disposition and good nature which win and hold her friends.
"Aye and she has a mind of her own."
Outwardly Dorothy upholds the reputation of the stately senior—tall
and fair with a very superior air, to say nothing of a complexion of peaches
and cream. Now secretly Dorothy indulges in "crushes" and enjoys little
bits of gossip "even as you and I"; firmly believes that a good hater is the
next best thing to a true friend and her motto is "what's the difference?"
"Benigne  he  was  and  wonder  diligent
And in adversitee ful pacient."
Lyle learned, during those last few hectic years, to give orders as an
aviator; now he is learning to take them as a 'sky-pilot'. As part of his
apprenticeship he has tried to'keep apart from the whirl of college life
and has succeeded fairly well until inveigled into violent disputes in the
Bible Study group and inter-class debates.
This great critic is generally found around the hall in company with a
pipe, a cane and a knowing look. If you want information on any subject
ask Geoff. His leanings are toward mountain-climbing, literature, and the
study of the "trend of the modern drama" to which he contributes various
plays. He claims to have no interest in the opposite sex —but actions speak
louder than words.    "A Boguslavsky ?"
Barnett has taken charge of the Medical Section of the Library and
retails professional advice for the asking. Somehow his clinics usually
'peter out" in discussions of such frivolous topics as the Terpsichorean art or
Cusick's cuisine. His friends, baffled by his alternating look of perplexity
and Al. Jolson smile, wondering how much or little—he knows, advise him
to begin practice on the unfortunate inhabitants of some far-off land
"And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in the aspect and her eyes"
In her first three years of college life Dorothy was a great hockey
enthusiast but now that she is a senior she has given up such childish sport
for more dignified pastimes. When one sees Dorothy's fashionable hair cut
one wonders about the dignity, lt is a secret. It was done in order that
she would arrive in time for lectures. I wonder what Doctor Davidson
Marion's chief hobbies are the reading room, the musical society, and
—pardon repetition-^the rink, not to mention deep and serious academic
pursuits. Mingled with her angelic personality is that strange hypnotic
power which offers sufficient inducement for a "gallant young gentleman" to
bow the knee, even under such dire circumstances as the publicity of the
arena. Her life is not all pleasure however. We have every expectation
of someday seeing her name figuring prominently in historical circles.
"Sweetness, truth, and every grace,
Which time and use are wont to teach,
The eye may in a moment reach
And read distinctly in her face."
Gwen came from Victoria to join the higher lights of Arts '22.   "O me
miseram" is her constant refrain but we have found that no situation is too
gloomy for a cheery word from her.
Supporting the theory of evolution Norm has recently developed into
a modern super-dreadnought jazz-hound. As a revy,a,rd for. consistent wo$k
he h-s been appointed assistant in doxology and spends several days a
week fervently expounding to the fairer freshettes in his lab. It is to be
hoped that this occupation and his new car do not culminate in disaster.
Instead of the learned gown he wears the scientist's khaki duster.
"Hail to thee, Blythe Spirit!" •»-
Blythe is a cheerful youth who wanders over daily from New' Westminster and just manages to get the last car back. One of the originals,
although he is heartily interested in his own class, he has occasional lapses
towards the better half of Arts '23. He claims that his thesis in Honours
Chemistry has developed into a catastrophe. From present indications,
some day he will be leader in his profession.
Our first impression of Carlton is that he is quiet and unobtrusive,
studious and conscientious. But he can't fool us all. The ladies in
English 16 think he spends all his evenings studying, .but, if the truth were
known. — no. we will spare the details. It i" a mystery how he gets his
first classes, but he seems to have the happy faculty of combining his recreations and his studies in such a way as to produce results.

"Much can be made of a Scotsman if she be caught young."
Jeannie is one of those irrepressible North Vancouverites who simply
love the trip over Burrard Inlet every day. She spends her summers on the
prairies or in Northern British Columbia and says the North is much the
nicer. We all agree with you, Jeannie. Favorite expression : "Oh say, wait
for me till I fix mv hair."
A most efficient and popular President of the Women's Undergrad and
member of the Students' Council, Christie is, at the same time, a student
of real ability. The only woman in Arts '22 who had courage enough to
undertake a course of Honours in Chemistry, she is, at times, busy in the
lab., stirring mysterious compounds. More often, she chats with friends in
the stack room and attends teas and dances.
"Eyes too expressive to be blue,
Too lovely to be grey."
Mona is a gentle maid who joined our Sophomore class in 1919, doubtlessly allured from the sunny South by the super excellence of our year.
She seems an unsophisticated little girl, but looks are deceptive for Mona
knows all about the "two fingers of wine." With her "cloud of black hair
and huge blue eyes" she stirs much admiration from all the beauty-appreciating youths in our halls.
A dual personality after the famous Raffles. By day Dud is a stoic
student of Shakesp are and Anglo-Saxon. By night. ... we would hate
to particularide, but we are sure to hear next morning of 'who' and 'how',
and a broken windshield. We are now no longer in doubt as to why Dud
i to be found in the stack-room before six a.m. . . . but how? That's
the question.
Weldon formerly belonged to Arts '19 but left at the end of his Freshman Year to do a little shooting in Europe. During his four years at college
he has been of infinite use to everyone. He has a chronic "sore" look but if
poked in the ribs and offered a Players' he will grin from ear to ear.
Altogether Weldon is a good scout, an Al student, and as Class President
this year he has been a veritable "Daddy to us all."
Vogee has the honour of having been the first Speaker and Convener of
the Student Parliament. Pounding the gavel and crying out "Order!" in a
stentorian voice just suits him. He will argue with you in any discussion no
matter what the topic. During lecture-hours he seems to be taking in every
word. In reality his mind is far away wool-gathering. If you want to
know anything about politics anywhere "Ask Art."
"Eyes darker than darkest pansies and hair
More black than ash-buds in the front of March."
Pat looks good, but isn't, at least not very good, for even when she is
all but buried behind a Latin lexicon one may notice a merry twinkle in
her eyes. If you want to rouse her enthusiasm just ask her to explain the
geography of Grouse Mountain. Confronted with any difficulty whatever
she i. heard to murmur "Hope's the tie which keeps the heart from breaking."
Gwen is noted for her bright nature and delightful sense of humour, and
also an irresistable disposition which enables her to get her own way in
everything. An ideal college girl she enters into all our frolics and yet
doesn't mind working too. We think her very courageous to tackle a French
Honour Course this year. "Sugar and spice, and all that's nice"—some one
else thinks so too.
Persuasive  speech  and  more  persuasive  sighs,
Silence that spoke and eloquence of eyes.
Edna is perhaps best known in musical circles where she takes an
active part both inside and out of the college. She is also interested in
tennis and skating but has a great aversion to dances. Her creed is,—
"Variety is the mother ai enjoyment." Her favorite expression, "Oh r(e)ally,
How  thrilling."
"Whilom ere youth's conceit had waned methought
Answers to all life's problems I had wrought."
Habitue of high-brow clubs. Charlie initiated the cult of the cane, the
bow-tie and the Academic air. and holds frequent "conversaziones" in the
Stack Room where, wearied with upholding Arts '22 on platform and
campus. Charlie seeks repose. A first-class student, his passjon for displaying his association with books at afternoon tea is pardonable, his ethics
and aesthetics being without reproach.
Les. has won a place in the hearts of all—and broken some. On class
and A.M.U.S. executives he has been a willing worker. His presence has
^le£it>frffectiveness to the deliberations of the Chemistry Society and dignity
to t^*"LeTTe7s*"'Ciut3 (though we often wondered whence cometh his interest
in English.) His scholarship and the high esteem in which he is held by
ill make his choice as Rhodes Snholar a most happy one.
"Nee lusisse pudet sed non incidere ludum."
In his four years with '22, Jim has been the legal guardian of the
digni*- of Greece and Rome. Time and the Classics have given him a
seriousness that is deceptive for, although his thesis is Pastoral Poetry, the
shillaleigh comes handier than the shepherd's crook, and when he adopts the
measured tread and the far-away look, he is just as likely as not dreaming of
-he Da<l Eireann or Donnybrook Fair.
"Eyes with a wondrous witching charm."
Louise is not only famous for long eye-lashes, but possesses a sweetness
and captivating charm that make her the delight of her friends. She is proficient in History, Spanish and dancing, and can tell you all about Kelowna,
its climate and products—agricultural or human. Jolly and always ready to
lend a helping hand.    Favorite expression, "What do you think about it?"
After a holiday spent attending normal and teaching, Annie joined our
ranks in the fall of '19. She's an Honour student in History, and a member
of the Historical Society. She held the position of class treasurer in our
junior year, and represented us in the interclass debates. Her many sterling qualities have won her a host of friends and we wish her all success for
the future.
"But to know her was to love her."
In spite of hours spent poring over Anglo-Saxon, Ruth still maintains
her sweetness of temper and cheerfulness of disposition. We are sorry this
exacting Honor course demands so much of her time that all social
pleasures have been renounced and executive offices dropped. The "Ubyssey"
of which she was for two years an associate editor misses her too. But don't
take Ruth too seriously. Did you know . . . , I mean why did she miss
that Victoria boat?
A quiet gentleman in everything but footwear, where he shouts loud
and long with spats and verdant hose. He is often to be seen alone, deeply
interested in modern drama as provided by the 'Capitol'. One might accuse
him of misogyny if it were not for the fact that he writes melodramatic plays.
"Bob" is one of our quiet and courteous gentlemen but that isn't all, for
he is famous for his good nature and his willingness to help. He has proven
a faithful, cheery, worker in the Musical Society and ot his colleagues a
friend worth having.
"Though modest, on his unembarrassed brow
Nature hath written 'Gentleman' "
His favorite expression is "Please pass the music along to the end of
','ie row."
An original member in diverse ways, Bruce has used his talents to enliven many a dull hour He leads the Independent party, and is an ardent
supporter of Capitalism in opposition to the Bolsheviki with whom he is accustomed to "— strive mightily, but eat and drink as friends." His
success in dramatics was crowned last year with the Presidency of the
Players' Club. The girls will regret to hear that Bruce is —> but we
mustn't tell.
Page   Twenty-seven JOSCELYNE  SYLVIA  FRITH
"Petite and sweet, cute and neat, that's Joe."
"Joe" as we all call her is noted for the originality of her opinions, her
expressive brown eyes.—it is whispered that the people at Beaver Lake,
where she cultivated the young minds, succumbed to their depths—and her
musical ability. She has a passion for diminutive note-books and afternoon teas and entertains daily at lunch with witty remarks. Judging from
what we see at class parties her inclinations is towards tall men.
Norah is one of the busiest girls in the University. Besides being a very
efficient student, she is a member of the Letters' Club. Historical Society
and Glee Club. This year she was elected President of the Players' Club.
Her ability as pianist has been found to be of the highest order. She has
been converted to socialism through the inspiration of the great T. P. P.
A large circle of friends have found her charm and sweetness of disposition
irresistablc.    We wish Norah every success for the future.
Dena is one of the most vivacious and hard working members of our
class. At almost any time of the day she may be seen, either diligently
reading French, preferably George Sand, with the aid of the indispensible
Petit Larousse, or else sitting on the top of a ladder in the stacks getting
berself besprinkled with that romantic sort of dust which falls most heavily
on French and Spanish books. In her spare time she reads H. G. Wells and
attempts to live up to her nick name, "the animated question mark."
Jimmy is an accomplished artist on the violin and is best known as
leader of the College Orchestra. He hails from New Westminster and has
the distinction of being the youngest member of the class. An Honours
Chemistry and Biology man. the pursuit of elusive felines for thesis work
has caused him much worry. Jimmy attends all social functions and often
has been seen dashing after the last interurban.
Al. is our amateur cartoonist and sign-wfiter The demands made upon
his time in this way, the necessity of working for "first-classes", and social
obligations which just can't be refused leave him little rest. No wonder
then, if he should feel a trifle weary in the violent strife of inter-class rugby
and be glad to get into the old Tuxedo again.
"List to me while I tell you—"
Overseas and in the the Glee Club Allan's mighty voice has moved his
audience. In happier days he captained the Intermediate Rugby Team and
presided over the Men's Literary Society. Besides executive office in the
class and the "Y" he edits the "Ubyssey's" humorous column and instructs
his class-mates in philosophy and vain deceit. He is sure to be identified
with the Church, either in the pulpit or the choir.
Page Twenty-eight MARY LILIAN REID.
Lillian is vice president of the musical society, and sometimes overcomes her modesty sufficiently to add a solo to the Glee Club programme.
She is an active member of the Historical Society; and also an excellent
exterior decorator, as shown by the superb color scheme of her costume
at the class party. Impression of Lillian in the Library—two enormous
grey eyes appearing over a stack of economic reports.
"Cheerful looks make every day a feast,
And 'tis that which crowns a welcome."
Helen's career at college has been one of uniform success, most characteristic of her is her unfailing cheerfulness. Her favorite sport is skating.
Just before Christmas she had the misfortune to sprain her ankle. Helen
has been known to faint at shadows, but I don't think she is as timid and
cemure as she looks.
Everybody knows "Agony". She is one of the best-natured, hardest-
working, fastest-talking people about college and since her arrival from
the "Hat" as a sophomore she has done a little bit in every line of work
in the place. She is secretary of the Student's Council, a star in the Players' Club and chief assistant in a host of things but her activities are not
confined to the Varsity—she is a great cook.
Economist, philosopher and mathematician, he sprang up among the
■ rolling prairies of Saskatchewan. Carnduff was the place. Then he joined
the Canadian army when he tripped along to the music of bagpipes, his
kilts dangling about his bare knees. For three years that old reliable
haversack has done noble service in the U. B. C. He supports faithfully
the University orchestra with his violin, and takes an active part in the
S.   C.   M.
Colin cultivates a moustache and. an air of hauteur. With the superiority that comes from living on the heights of North Vancouver, he affects
an entire disregard for the natives of our city with a travelling costume that
is a weird combination of the ornamental and useful. An expert in geology,
long association with rocks has hardened his nature against camp cooks,
and the co eds have almost given him up.
He belongs to the small group of the Mathematicians. Like the trade
winds that blow westward, Len drifted hither from Ontario. A convincing
and able platform speaker, he has brought honor to Arts'22 in inter-class
debates as well as in the International with Idaho in '21. Judging from his
conservative attitude, if left with him, our country will never be over-run
with Bolshies, Suffragettes, O. B. U's., or Orientals. He has a keen eye for
the modern Venus.
"The world is good, and the people are good,
And we're all good fellows together."
Dorothy is an all-round girl, taking a keen interest not only in sports
and social activities, but also in literary pursuits, being vice-president of
the Sigma Delta Kappa. She is not entirely the quiet bookworm she seems,
for the stackroom holds other attractions for her than novels and plays.
By the way, have you heard who her ideal dancing partner is ?
Staff Cox, a small man with a large spirit. Staff is one bundle of pep.
energy and smiles and is a marvel of industry. His main interest is the
Musical Society where as secretary he does a tremendous amount of secretarial work ranging from the pursuit of high "a's" and "b's" to city editors
and members of the council. His favorite saying is "A man should be
measured from the chin up."
A charming maiden with a winning smile,
Her pleasant manner doth all hearts beguile."
Margaret, who hails from Point Grey, has remained a faithful member,
of Arts'22. Her course which consists of Botany, English and Spanish,
suggests that one of her maxims may be that "variety is the spice of life."
Although she has taken no prominent part in college activities yet her firm
support can always be relied upon.
"But to know her is to love her,
Her heart is warm, benevolent and kind."
Mary's outstanding characteristics are genuineness, sincerity and nobleness—a true friend and always the same. Mary is taking honors in French,
and is the devoted member of the Alliance Francaise. She is patriotic, and
is contributing to the "Gift Fund of the Marys of England for Princess
"Behold what good things are doii^up in small parcels."
Throughout her course Mary has shown* an active interest in even-
phase of college life. Her unfailing energy and unlimited capacity have
been apparent on various executives, the Women's Undergrad. The Lit.
and her class. She has won fame by obtaining The Ladies Tennis Championship two years successively. It is rumored also that she has spent some
time studying History—to which course she is extremely devoted.
Vic. in his second year was President of Arts 21. In his third year he
was vice-president of the Arts Men. The drug business and the beauties
and intellectual enlightenment of such a subject as Spanish which he hopes
to utilize sometime in his visits to the isles of the Southern Seas, on his
idealistic yacht of indolence and ease. Being as well an 'acute' economist
he has made provision for every foreseen difficulty.

Page Thirty-four The Skidadlings of Skidoo
•ffN THE first moon of the reign of King Hunter of the tribe of
II  Skidoo, it came to  pass that the tribe  did assemble in  solemn
confab to wag tongues and shake heads wisely. And when at last
the mumblings of the babblers had died away, the King did rise up and
say, that upon a certain day of the week it would rain, and that upon
that day the tribe would assemble an umbrella caravan and hike to the
place called Capilano Gully.   And all the tribe said "Yeah ho!"
- And when the day did arrive the hunch of the King was fulfilled and
the heavens rained forth an abundance of rain. So it was that the whole
tribe, ,yea all the Eds and Co-Eds of the tribe did don galoshes and
macintosh togas and did set forth in the famous Ark of North-Van.,
coming at last to the appointed shelter.
Now straightway when they arrived they did eat and drink of the
cup which does not queer, and everyone was right merry. And when
thep had eaten overmuch, a certain Mr. Art Two—Three and a certain
Miss Co-Ed did set forth to view the weeping face of Ma Nature and
many of the tribe did likewise. Others shook the wicked heel and
paid their donations to the God called Terpsichore, as true votaries
Now certain of the wise men of the tribe did carry home with them
stones found in the gully and did build a grave in the tent called auditorium and when a few days had passed all the amorous swains and
fair fussettes oodled forth to shake the festive hoof about the corpse
vi the grave marked "23." And certain of the tribe of Soph did say
"Alas, Two—Three is dead!" But, while the body lay in the cold, cold
earth, the spirit of the tribe Skidoo did scoot abroad with Varsity
spirit, and did flit from heart to heart until the tribal dance did lighten
the faces with many wreathed smiles. And so the capers of Ed and
Co-Ed Junior did continue until the twelfth hour, when after much
eating of cake and guzzling of tea, the whole tribe did disperse and
hasten away in chariots both lizzy and buzzer.
In the third moon, a bolter did come from the blooey, and the war
of the Meet of Track did come upon the tribe. Alack and alas, the
body of Two-Three lay amouldering in the grave and it could no longer
run and jump and play as in the days of Soph! But lo, the spirit of the
good tribe did gallop abroad in the guise of a dark horse and the hearts
of the Tribe of Frosh were moved to goo-goo-ings, and one of the tribe
did say: "Bring thy gee-gee in out of the wet."
But in the second war called rugby the honor of the tribe was redeemed, and the Eds of Two-Three did beat the Senior braves in the
first of the inter-tribal rugby melees, and many were the busted pates
and great was the groaning thereof in the ranks of the Senior Tribesmen.
And those of the Tribe Two—Three who were also of the Player's
tribe and who donned masks in the celebrations of Christmas graduation
were named, Al Hunter, brother of Robson, brother of Dickson, sister
of McLennan sister of Breeze. Some also of the Tribe did mark themselves for the Passing of Brother Pirn, and these were called Clyne and
Leveson.   And such was the feast of dramatics.
Upon two several nights the tribe did skid in iron shod sandals and
upon the first night the Scribe of the Tribe did say: "The moon is up
and the blood is full of shine." And now the King did recall them and
they did partake of provision in the home of the chocolate drop.
The tent called Arena was the place of the other skiddage festival,
and the tribe did slide upon the soft surface which was likened unto lard.
And thence by horseless chariots to the place of Jessie where they did
cut a caper and swing a wicked heel and partake of the feast of eats.
And the next day there was much of slumber in the lectures and halls
of the shanty called U.B.C.
Now among the Co-Eds of the Tribe were two certain geniuses and
they did originate the rights of the female of the college species to debate
with the felines of the State of Oregon, and the college of Williamette
and the tribe of Yanks. And the name of the one was Sallee and the
other was called Dorothy.
Ex-King Harry and "Red" Robertson did defeat the traditional
enemies of the Tribe of Two—Three in a battle of, tongues concerning
the tribal ownership of the Iron Trails. "Red" of the tribe of Bolshevike
is also the King of the Social Sciencers and a singer of the chant called
"Hallelujah, I'm a bum bum."
And such is the history of the tribe, and while the warm puppy
doth romp upon the 4X field, the Skidadlers of Skidoo do shake their
brogues and don their sandals to run in relay fr-orft the promised land
to the present abode "of the tribe on the hill near we pesthouse.
And in all the wanderings of the Tribe, the King'is aided by the
Tribal Marshall and the name of the Marshall is Offord. And he is is
the first of the Tribal Marshalls in all the land of 'Varsity. Yea he did
lead the procession even unto the Class Party, where the Dean
and Deaness of the Tribe did preside. And the name of the Dean is
Coleman and he is honorary King of the Tribe.
Miracles and parables! At the second jazz-meet, the Eds and the
Co-Eds were watched off by the Dean King and this King hath a sense
of humour for he did match mathematics with society, actress with
preacher and literature of lofty stature with crap-shooter of low degree.
And this chronicle is the true chronicle of the Tribe Skidoo under
King Hunter from the days of Soph unto the time of cramming and
gnashing of teeth.

Page  Thirty-seven ♦ffT happened on a certain day in the month of September 1920 when
|| the University opened its doors to receive youth in quest of knowledge, that the class of Arts '24 first entered the arena to engage
in the activities of U.B.C. As a result of the initiation and the Christmas exams, the novelty of 'Varsity life soon wore off; and we found
ourselves a trifle dazed but with our bubbling spirits unquenched. We
just could not be put down and our freshie spirit carried us on into all
manner of University activities.
This year that same spirit has been revived twofold, and has permeated all college activities. It is with a glow of satisfaction and a
thrill of pride that we look back over the path we have trodden in our
Sophomore year. Marked with such milestones as our unparalleled feats
at the Track Meet and our delightfully novel Class Party, that path has
indeed been one worthy of the talents of Arts '24. Moreover, this has
been a happy year for us all. It has transformed us from a shy, inexperienced group (Yes, we must admit that we were Freshies once) to a
confident, enthusiastic unit, bound together by memories of one of the
most successful Sophomore years U.B.C. has ever known.
Dr. and Mrs. Eastman, Honoiary Presidents, head the list of our
executive. So far they have survived the effects of chaperoning the
liveliest Soph, class on record and have appeared at our functions on
many occasions.
Our popular President, Jack Grant, guides the fortunes of Arts
'24 and, in addition, takes a great interest in debating, representing
Varsity in the U.B.C. vs. Reed College debate.
The vice-president, Eleanor Ormrod manages affairs for the women
and succeeds at the same time in keeping us all in good spirits with her
merry smile.
Helen Creelman, our able Secretary, rejoices in High Jinks (remember who was the funniest women there and take a big interest in all the
affairs of the class.

Harold Cantelon is our financier and has gained much experience
in his duties as class treasurer. Harold is one of our prominent debaters,
as well as Chief Reporter for the Ubyssey.
A. G. Bruun, our class Reporter fills the important position of Associate Editor on the Ubyssey and is an inter-class debater of some
note.   We expect great things of Geoff's poetical ability.
Our Literary Representatives are Lucy Ingram for the women and
Walter Hodgson, one of our brilliant orators, for the men.
In athletics we are represented by Isabel MacKinnon, famous at
basketball, and by Peter Palmer who ably handles all sport matters for
the men.
The activities of the year opened with a
hike to Capilano where we spent a strenuous afternoon and Evening in tramping,
eating, and dancing. Dr. Eastman and
Miss K. Peck, who proved excellent chaperons, agreed with us in pronouncing the day an unqualified success.      **■
The big social event of the season was the Class Party. When the
guests arrived they found a gaily decorated Christmas tree growing in
the middle of the floor, and the usually staid auditorium frivolously
strung with lights and streamers of blue and gold. The Men's Common
Room also had taken on a festive air and provided a suitable retreat
for those who did not wish to dance. The big surprise of the evening
came after supper when jolly old St. Nicholas appeared, not down the
chimney 'tis true, but drawn by his nimble reindeer from the direction
of Room Y. After Santa had made his opening speech and had dispensed horns, paper-caps, candy canes, and other dainties, the dancing
recommenced and continued until midnight. Winners of the present, winners of the
You can't beat us for we're much too
To the tune of the above refrain Arts '24 once again brought home
the bac—pardon!—in other words, the Faculty Cup, duplicating last
year's feat by an even wider margin, with a total score of 56 points. As
Freshmen we shattered all class records; as Sophomores, in breaking our
own, we have set a mark that will remain at U.B.C. for "many moons."
Can we be blamed, we ask you, for a certain air of wisdom when sport
affairs are discussed?
Has Varsity ever seen such a collection of stars as is found in Arts
'24? In our humble estimation—never! The "one and only" Buck, the
"incomparable" Livy, Pete the "old reliable," such artists as Hislop,
Lundie and McLean show us to be "some punkins." In the words of the
"We don't want to boast, but, by heck, if we do,
We've got the men, we've got the pep
And we can show the cup to you."
In sports of all kinds Arts '24 plays an important part and her
athletes claim prominent places on nearly every 'Varsity team. In the
McKechnie Cup Squad Arts '24 has such stars as "Pete" Palmer, Al
Buchanan, "Cy" McLean, and Bill Cameron.. Numerous of her athletes
hold places on the Miller and Intermediate teams. The Soccer team
has "Jock" Lundie and "Hec" Cant. Colton ably represents us in hockey;
and in basketball we have such men as Al. Buchanan, Gord. Lewis, and
As this write-up of our activities goes to press, our squads are turning out for the Arts '20 Relay and the various other interclass athletics.
With capable men backed by whole-hearted enthusiasm, we are determined to go a long way in the competition for the championship.
The women, also, of Arts '24 have shown a marked interest in
athletics. In basketball Eloise Angell, Isabel MacKinnon, and Verna
Turner uphold our reputation. In swimming and in the gymnasium, in
grass hockey and in tennis our women representatives are prominent and
have done much to spread the fame of Arts '24.
Players Club.
On the Stage Arts '24 has made a name for itself. In the two years
we have been here members of our class have starred in both the Christmas and Spring plays. In the last Christmas plays, actors from Arts '24
filled many parts; Jessie Adams in the "Maker of Dreams" and Lome
Morgan, Eric Jackson, and Betty Somerset in the "Pot-Boiler" demonstrated dramatic ability in playing difficult roles. In the Spring play,
"Mr. Pirn Passes By," Betty Somerset is taking a leading part.
In debating Arts '24 has shown
much enterprise and enthusiasm
and boasts several budding orators.
In the two interclass debates with
Arts '25 we gained one decision
and lost the other; in the Women's
debate Florence Johnson and Frances McMorris lost after a hard
struggle; but in the Men's debate
Geoff Bruun and Howard Goodwin
won a keen contest with the Freshmen. In the next interclass debate with Arts '23 we were again successful, our representatives, Messrs. Goodwin and Burton winning the
championship in Arts.
Again, Arts '24 showed its interest in debating in accepting the
challenge of the Japanese Students' Association. H. B. Cantelon and
D. J. Anderson were chosen to speak for Arts '24 and they put up a
strong case on an Asiatic subject.
In the Oratorical Contests we came out fairly* well, Miss Greta
Mather capturing second place in the Women's, aijg Mr. Yonemura taking part in the Men's.
In intercollegiate debating Arts '24 takes an extremely prominent
place. We claim three of 'Varsity's few intercollegiate debaters—A. L.
Wheeler on the Washington team, and Jack Grant and Walter Hodgson
on the Reed College team.
Thus concludes a brief survey of our year's activities—a brilliant
year in all respects for Arts '24. We have great faith and confidence
in the future, and we hope to make the next two years of our 'Varsity
life as happy and as successful as our Sophomore year has been.

Ode to a Freshman
A little Donkey said one day,
"O Ma, I'm in a dreadful way.
I realize I haven't brains
Enough to shelter from the rains.
I know that I shall not succeed,
For even when I try to feed,
I am so ornery, alas,
That thistles I prefer to grass."
His mother mopped his streaming eyes,
And then began to sympathise:
"Don't be so doleful, Neddy dear,
You'll rise to greatness, never fear.
Your mind may be a blank, my pet,
But you will be a Freshman yet!"
Our French instructor takes a piece of chalk,
And writes phonetic signs of mystery:
. "Ouvrez la bouche, alors prononcez 'i'."
We do our best, and raise a doleful squawk,
Like frightened goslings fleeing from the hawk.
"La classe, ecoutez ce que je vous dis,
.   C'est la prononciation de Paris."
But what an awful way to learn to talk!
Upon your forehead may the laurel wave,
if you can make your face and tongue behave,
And satisfy your most exacting teachers,
In forming accents circumflex or grave!
I envy you, you lucky, gifted creatures,
You surely must have double-jointed features!

Page Forty-one ^Ly HE Freshman Class, now growing more and more dignified as
^L the session draws to a close, makes its initial bow with deepest
reverence to the readers of the Annual. They beg you to treat
their little history with kindness remembering (perhaps with longing)
those far-off days when you, too, were green and full of awe and
timidity.   Gaze, therefore upon the record of their first year among you.
Guiding the activities of Arts '25 girls is Miss Murial Moffat who
has shown the greatest possible interest and enthusiasm in all things
pertaining to Freshies. Miss Florence McLeod is vice-president and
has proved herself invaluable by her executive ability in every extremity.
The hard-working and hard-worked secretary, Miss Grace Smith needs
no introduction. Her unfailing good-will and co-operation in all undertakings have done much to make this first year a success. The remaining
members of the Executive are: Literary Representative, Miss Marguerite
Carrico; Athletic Representative, Miss Claire Blaney; Class Reporter,
Miss Theresa Foran. Marguerite has shown wonderful debating ability
also and of course you all know Claire!
Charlie Zink directs the destinies of the men of Arts '25. He is
the personification of pep and stick-at-it-ness. No project is too difficult for Charlie to tackle. Anything to keep the gang going! Class
parties and students are mere details, everyday affairs that brighten
life up for the genial president. The vice-president is Jack (Tubby)
Shore, the most versatile, member of the class. Anything from poetry
to cannibal kings and Shakesperian characterization fits ole "Tubby"
to a "T." Remember his soul-stirring speech at the class party and
his marvellous interpretation of an Africa monarch on 'Varsity night?
Such things you will never forget! And his benignant smile! But why
.tell you of things with which you are only too familiar? Ham. Welch
with his child-like simplicity and sweet baby face trails around at
Charlie's apronstrings and at stated intervals fulfills the duties which
Page Forty-two
his secretarial position entails. Once, yes, once upon a time Nicholson
was treasurer but alas he is no more! Frank Penwill was elected to the
position after the "ides" of Christmas. He manages the purse-strings
with consumate skill. The athletic representative is Wilfred Kelly.
Kelly worked like a Trojan and spared no pains to help make the class
party the unqualified success that it was.
The Literary Representative is George Martin and it is said that
Kelvin Mackenzie reports the doings of his fellow Freshmen in the
"Ubyssey." Miss Bollert and Professor Wood are the honorary presidents of the class and both have shown the most active interest in all
Freshie pursuits. For this interest Arts '25 expresses its heart-felt
Into practically every college activity the Frosh has thrust his
perky little nose. In the Christmas plays Charlie Zink and Lou Eckert:
played leading parts and won many rounds %of applause with their
clever acting. Elmer Ross, Don Hart, and Warren were also called upon
to exercise their skill in the various plays. Other Frosh members of the
Players' Club are:   Mary Roe, Jean Thomson, and Jean Hopkins.
In debating Arts '25 has raised aloft it voice sometimes with great
effect and sometimes not. The girls, represented by Marguerite Carrico
and Helen MacGill came out on top in their debate with '24. '25 has
reason to be proud of the fact that two of the representatives/in the
Washington—B.C. debate were Freshmen, Wilfred Kelly debating at
home and Charlie Zink. "abroad." On Wednesday, March 15th, at the
Women's Lit Arts '25 girls defeated '23 and thus won the shield. The
subject was: "Resolved tht India should break away from the British
Empire and become a separate nation." Miss Dorothy Murray and Miss
Elsie Rilance were the first year representative^. Social
The "Freshette Tea" was the first social event of '25. It was held
in the Auditorium early in November and was a great success. This
Tea established a precedent for future first year classes. The purpose
of the function was to give Freshettes a better opportunity of knowing
one another and this purpose was undoubtedly very well accomplished.
The Class Party was the best ever. Never before in the annals of
Freshies was there such a party. No pains were spared by the hardworking committee to make it "the" event of the year. The old Auditorium was unrecognizable, so gaily was it adorned and a jolly spirit of
good fellow ship pervaded the tuneful atmosphere. Everyone was out
for a good time; everyone got it, and everyone went home happy.
Nor must you pass over the skating party. On a certain chilly night,
Freshies betook themselves to ye good old Coal Harbor where with
many a marshmallow they regaled themselves and with much jollity
did they glide upon the gilded, glassy surface.
Next in order came "High Jinks" when the Freshettes were shown
just what a good time they can have with all the other women in the
college. For the night everyone was in the same class. One did not
feel small just because of being a Freshette. They even qualified for
the prizes. Roxy Cranston won the first prize for the most ingenious
girl's costume and Mary Roe carried off the prize for the funniest man's
On Friday of 'Varsity Week, Arts '25 gave a successful entertainment in the auditorium. "Free Speech." a thrilling socialist play was
presented by the men and a varied programme of songs and dances and
camouflage was presented by the girls.
To a Soph.
A Sophomore was cast on an African shore,
Where a cannibal monarch held sway;
And he served him up on slices of toast,
On the eve c&that very same day.
But vengeance of Fate followed swift on the act;
Soon the cannibals 'gan to quail,
By a terrible illness the trible was attacked,
That soph was horribly stale!
The Soph is a gentle thing,
Ambitious we are told,
A wild has-been-a-Freshman shriven,
There's not a milder soul in heaven
Or angel that's less bold.
He thinks he is a woolly kid
And winks a wicked eye;
He tries to affect a chesty look,
The terrible stare of a cannibal cook,
When a Freshman passes by.
But Freshmen learn and learn full soon
That the Sophomore swings the lead
And once in a while they call his bluff,
He's got a good line but it's not enough,
When a freshman's seeing red.
And so in the spring of twenty-two,
When we leave our books behind,
When we leave these halls and scatter abroad,
We'll down on our knees and pray to the Lord
To improve the Sophomore's mind.

ym^ISS BOLLERT came to U.
£|| J B.C. last October to take a
position whose duties were
undefined, whose traditions were on
the knees of the gods. Inevitably
such an office takes its form and
its atmosphere from the woman
who first holds it. The University
of British Columbia is fortunate to
have found in Miss Bollert the
qualities it could have wished for
the post of "Advisor of Women."
Miss M. L. Bollert is an Honor
graduate in Modem Languages and
History from Toronto University,
and Honor graduate from Ontario
Normal College. In 1902 she took
her M.A. at Toronto, and in 1906
at Columbia University, New York.
For a number of years she was
instructor in English at Horace
Mann High School, Columbia; and
at Teacher's College, Columbia.
Later she became Extension Lecturer in English at Columbia. In 1908 she was invited by the New York
Board of Education to give a series of Public Lecture Courses. Her
special educational work has been in connection with Social Welfare
Activities, which she directed for the Robert Simpson Co., and for the
Sherbourne House Club, Toronto. As the guiding hand and the inspiration of Sherbourne House, Miss Bollert was able to do excellent and
much-needed work in her two special lines, English and Education. She
has brought to U.B.C. her varied experience and successful past to bear
upon the duties of her new position as Advisor of Women.
Last October, the W.U.S. gave a reception for Miss Bollert and later
at a specially called meeting, President Klinck outlined her position.
Miss Bollert had experience of her official and we trust, not unpleasant,
duties as chaperone on the occasion of the Victoria trip. Her daily
office hours have been a blessing to not a few of the women whose minds
are relieved and whose spirits are raised by a "consultation" with her.
A tradition of high and exacting standard has already began to take
form around the office of "Advisor of Women."
H. N. Thomson, B.Sc.
Professor H. N. Thompson has been a member of the Faculty of
Applied Science since September, 1919, yet so successfully has he kept
his light hidden under the proverbial bushel,—in this case—the Mining
Building, that his name is virtually unknown even to the denizens of "the
barn", and we are introducing him with the "new Professors." Graduating from McGill in 1897, Professor Thomson has held various important
positions as chemist and metallurgist in Canadian and American companies and the fund of knowledge thereby gained both entertains and
instructs all those fortunate enough to attend his lectures.
The Department of Mining has in Mr. G. A. Gillies, Associate Professor, one having the benefit of wide practical experience. After securing his B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering, at McGill, he held positions
with different firms n Montreal. Later, after two years n Manchester,
England, he returned to Canada and entered McGill, obtaining his B.Sc.
in Mining Engineering and winning the Dawson Fellowship, After
a year spent n research work he secured his M.Sc. Since coming to
B.C., the mechanical problems peculiar to mining have been his special
Miss Mae Barclay is one of our own post-graduates. Having obtained her Master's Degree in 1919, she continued in further postgraduate work and also attended Normal. She is now a part-time assistant in the Department of Mathematics.
Mr. Francis W. Bernard, Lecturer in Spanish, graduated from London University in 1875. He spent twenty years in Spain; returned to
England, and came to Canada in 1907. During the war he was Interpreter and Official Translator to the French High Commission at Washington.
Mr. B. S. Hartley, Lecturer in Mathematics, graduated from Cambridge in 1889 with first-class honors in Mathematcs. He was Captain
of the College Boat Club. After studying three years in Germany, he
joined the Royal navy, attaining his present rank of Instructor-Commander.
Page   Forty-five STELLA McGUIRE, B.A., M.A.
Miss Stella McGuire, assistant in English, took her B.A. in English from British Columbia in 1918. During the following winter she
taught at Braemar, returning to this university to take her M.A. in English and French in 1920.
After obtaining his B.A.Sc. at McGill, Mr. F. A. Wilkin, Lecturer
in Civil Engineering accepted a position with the C.N.R. supervising
location on lines west of Winnipeg. He went overseas in 1914 as a
Lieutenant and retired in 1918 with the rank of Major.
J. R. GRANT, B.Sc.
Mr. J. R. Grant, Lecturer in Civil Engineering, received his B.Sc.
from Queen's University in 1905. He was with the American Bridge
Co., New York, and in private practice in Vancouver before going overseas.   Until 1921 he was Bridge Engineer for the P.G.E. Railway.
Mr. H. P. Archibald, part time Instructor in Mechanical Engineering ot the U.B.C. since 1920, obtained his B.Sc. from McGill in "98. He
was an instructor there for a year after graduating. Mr. Archibald
is well known in the city as a Y.M.C.A. worker.
L.W. GILL, B.Sc, M.Sc
Professor L. W. Gill, Professor of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and Head of the Department, graduated in Mining Engineering at McGill University in 1896 with honors and gold medal. In 1897
he took his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineemg, receiving the 1851 Exhibition Scholarship, and carryng on research work in Magnetism at Harvard. Later, while Professor of Geneal Engineering at Queen's University, he wrote a text-book on electrical engineering. Professor Gill went
to France in command of the 46th Battery of Field Artillery and after
the Armistice, took charge under Colonel Tory of the. educational service
of tfie Canadian Army in England. Previous to coming' to this University, he held the position of Director of Technical Education for the
Miss Janet T. Greig graduated from Queen's University. Previous
to joining the Department of Modern Languages at the U.B.C, she
taught French in Macdonald College High School, Quebec, in the Braemar School, Vancouver and in the Montreal High Schools.
R. J. Skelton, B.S.A.
Mr. R. j. Skelton, Enumerator of Poultry Statistics is a graduate
of the Ontario Agricultural College, where he was an assistant professor before going overseas with the First Artillery Brigade. His experience as District Agriculturist with the B. C. Soldiers' Settlement
Board makes him well fitted for his present position.
Dr. M. J. Marshall, a native of Kingston, Ont., received his B.Sc.
degree at McGill University in 1914, being employed as Demonstrator
there until 1916, when he secured his M.Sc, winning the .Governor-
General's silver medal. In 1917 he went to Shawanigan Falls, P.Q.,
where he held the position of Research Chemist with the Canadian
Elctrical Products Co., and later, that of Chief Chemist with the Shawanigan Laboratory Ltd. In 1919 he attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston, obtaining, two years later, his Ph. D. in
Physical Chemistry.
Dr. G. C. Davidson, of the Department of JSisfory, was among those
who, in 1906, received the first B.A. degrees granted by University of
Toronto to students in a B. C. college. In 19i6 he secured his Ph. D.
from California University. During the war he was awarded an M.C.
and is notable for his remarkable swim from the sinking Empress of
Ireland. He is, (it is said) "A bit of an athlete, a bit of a scholar, and

Page Forty-seven The Graduating Class of Science '22
HN ATTEMPT to trace the history of the Class of Science '22
from the date of its inception in the fall of '18 would be futile,
for out of the twenty-eight members who are this year prospective
graduates, only four are, so to speak, "Native Sons (one a native
daughter) of the Class.
September of '19 however found us a very happy family gaily
trotting out by highways, by-ways (and by fords) in the precincts' of
Point Grey chasing the inevitable rod and chain. Yes, we were all there
—forty-seven strong and stalwart—back from a little sojourn "over-
there" don'tcherknow—"muleskinners" "gravelrushers" and "sky-pilots"
all rearing to go. During the succeeding months in the old familiar
corner room of the "Barn" we showed our ability to juggle sliderules,
B.T.U.s, double integrations, angular accelerations, kilowatts and even
to the astonishment of our old friend Prof. Killam—and, let it be added,
the lofty seniors.
The third revolution (1920-21) found us reduced in numbers but
more zealous than ever—each one pursuing his natural bent—whether
civil or-mechanical, chemical or metallurgical—and, be it said none were
severely twisted in the process.
Comes now the final year when, twenty-seven strong, and one fair,
we are nearing the end of our life's-work training—soon to be sent forth
into the cold calculating world once more to roam.
Though more than ever entrenched in our several pursuits, we are
still bound together by the common faculty of application and hard
work, which constitutes the true spirit of our class.
But we are not only seekers after the truth concerning the intrinsic
energies of atoms, the spacing of rivets, the fluxing of ores, or the cyclic
temperatures of the Otto-Rankive species—for, from amongst out
number come rugby stars of international fame—student's council members, yell kings—ardent "committee men"—play actors—musicians,
mountaineers and last but by no means least we have produced real
livid jazz-hounds.
Through all the four years we have been honoured by the presence
amongst us of U.B.C.'s only girl undergraduate in Applied Science—
Miss Hatt has lent to our class-rooms, our laboratories and our social
functions a grace and destinction unknown to any other Science year.
With her profound knowledge of the laws governing Mind as well as
Matter she has set a worthy example to the whole Faculty, as well as
to her classmates of '22. We wish you all success, Rona, in which ever
field of endeavour you may choose to take up.
Page Forty-eight
A record of the class would not be complete without special mention
of that ardent band of workers and all round goodfellows—the Mechanical Engineers. No important Science function is complete without their
guiding philosophical and mechanical genius (individual and collective)

down by the mud-flats—rations five cents per Vev.
And so we bid adieu to our Alma Mater—passing on to that greater,
hardier school, the school of experience—and finally to the Haven of
. Success. Let us take with us that spirit of devotion to duty and conscientious application to detail which has characterized our college career.
May this spirit! be imbued nto the succeeding classes as an enviable
standard—the spirit of Science '22.

Debonair—commonly known among rugby players as "slicker Bickell"
because of his prowness as a football star. A dreamer of dreams who has
the ability and determination to make them come true. A general favorite
with everybody, especially the fair sex. Outstanding features—a black
silken moustache. Favorite sports vary from duck hunting to fussing.
Noted for his sound judgment. "Al" is destined to become a famous Mechanical Engineer.
Rona is the first fair coed to withstand the rigours of a course in
Applied Science; to wit: the famous trial of 1919. Of the future, we hear
that she is going to specialize in the preparation and use of H2 Mg3 (Si03)4
We wish her every success whatever the future may be.
"Wobby" has always taken a very conspicuous part in Varsity politics
and his business ability has won him renown in the Office of Treasurer of
the Alma Mater Society. Noted for his clear and sound judgment, he is
a prominent man in all student affairs, as well as ' among those present" at
social functions. "Wobby" is also a Varsity oarsman. In his spare time
he shows aspirations towards Chemical Engineering, in which profession he
will no <loubt stamp his name as deeply as he has carved it into the minutes of the Students' Council.
"Zeek" started his college career as a member of Sc. '19 but left at the
end of his" first year. He joined us in the fall of 1919. and for the last
three years has kept to the straight and narrow path in spite of the efforts
of Gray. It has been rumored that he is an authority on the subject of
"viscosity" but this has not yet been confirmed.
The activities of this "man of the world" have been varied and -strenuous. Bearing the trials and tribulations »f a double degree course, he
became a B. A. two years ago. He graduates this year as a Mechanical
Engineer. It has been whispered that Wells leads a double life. At any
rate he combines the art of balancing his afternoon cup of tea with his
arduous duties as a man of science. Wells has represented the Engineers
in the Players' Club to perfection and is also one of the Varsity scullers.
"Smile and the world smiles with you "
Always cheerful and good natured even in a strenuous argument—such
is Si. When not busy distributing smiles among the fair sex. he can be
found in the chemistry lab. instructing the better half of Sc. '22 in the art
of manufacturing Cascara. He mixes athletics, ''fussing" and occasionally
work, in the right proportion, and holds his own in all of them. Favorite
saying.  "I  should  worry."
Page Fifty L. SHAW.
Lured by the mysteries of organic chemistry and held by the affinity
of the atom, Shaw has become a follower of alchemy. He aspires to
become an authority on drugs. His contribution to science and the world
this year is the extraction of the pep from peppermint, and he is reported
to have said that one drop of his extract on an elephant"s tongue would
kill six men.
Harold Doyle is one of those "stink-evolving, gas-dissolving, chemical
tngineers." His specialty is mineral flotation and he spends his spare time
during the summer delving into its mysteries at Trail. Quiet and unobtrusive by disposition, Doyle possesses a keen sense of humor and can argue
on any subject with the best of them. He is also an expert cartoonist,
and together with Bill Hatch he forms the Art Section of the Class. He is
rarely  reported  as  having been  seen  "out",  but we  have our  doubts.
'And certainly, he was a good fellow."
Bill joined us in our first year, a convalescant from France. Most of his
time is spent searching for Manganese, but he will some day be a Chemical
Engineer. During the summer months Gray reverts to his pre-war pastime
of driving C. P. R. locomotives. As a diversion from studying, he takes
in an occasional "show" or stags it to a dance. His greatest ambition is
to beat Bob Fournier at billiards.
A rather modest fellow who as far as we can learn has not fallen
a victim to the wiles of woman. He has won considerable- fame as an
expert on corrosion, both interior and exterior, and is a noted collector of
aluminum rust. His exploits as a navigator are almost without parallel.
A great secret of his while playing pool is ''keep your e'e on the ba'"—It
was thus that he beat that eminent, player, Bill Hatch.
Jimmie. as he is familiarly known about the college is not the unobtrusive youth that his picture would proclaim him to be. He has very strong
opinions on almost every subject, and he is never afraid of expressing them.
With his witticisms and versatile talents he often startles us. Whether
Jimmie aspires to excel in the art of public speaking or hang out his
shingle as a mechanical engineer he has not confided in us, but his ambitious
nature and winning personality assures him of success in the field he
Dougie Haig commanded the British Armies, but he has nothing on
Field Marshal "Sid" Anderson, who for the past year has been in command
of college activities around U B. C. On the Students' Council, in athletic
activities and in social functions Sid bas been a guiding genius, and much
of the credit for the successful year just closing has been due to his tireless energy. Incidentally "Sid" constitutes fifty per cent of the Class graduating in Civil Engineering.
Page   Fitfyone J .F. WALKER.
After vainly attempting to establish his "Anderson's Johnny Walker
Fountain." he decided to resort to an honest means of earning a living.
Had he been successful with the aforementioned project he would undoubtedly have ended on the rock pile. He chose the only alternative and registered for a course in Geology. His leisure hours are spent climbing Grouse
Mountain, and he was the prime mover in the building of the Cabin which
Our out-door Club has constructed on the summit.
A prominent member of the famous class in Mechanical Engineering.
Eric is a man of brains and system and an expert on everything—from
thermostats to plumb-bobs—from visualizing electricity to leading) the
Science Jazz Band. Though a brilliant all round student, Eric does not
burn the midnight juice, and when not in the M. E. "dugout" juggling
equations and idea(r)s" for Meekison. or endeavoring to discover the
action of salt on ice, he is to be found "somewhere in Shaughnessy".
Alas(s); yes. Favorite expression "Hot Dog"
"Bob" is President of the notorious Mechanical Engineers, to say
lothing of his unofficial position as class comedian. An ardent follower of
;port, he indulges frequently in his favorites, billiards, dancing and bridge.
With a little more wind, the ball, and a clear field he would have made a
jreat rugby player.. In spite of these handicaps he is a steady and
industrious worker and is sure to be a credit to the University. Favorite

"Spitz" hails from New Westminster He has fitted remarkably well
into college life, being a sociable creature and fully decided that it is not
well for man to live alone. His motto seems to be that hard work never
does anyone harm, in spite of this he always makes first class marks at
examination time. We feel sure that he will be successful in his chosen
profession, that of Chemical Engineering.
R. S. JANE. #.'
His original intention was to take civil* engineering, however he was
side tracked and now is a chemist of note. But he never lets chemistry
interfere with skating. He has a cherubic countenance and his quietness
gives the impression of shrinking modesty and innocence, but—have you
ever seen him at the rink—he usually arrives with two fair damsels— thus
rendering  his   surname  very  appropriate.
"Bill" is President of Science '22, a man of executive ability, rugby
player of note, and a favorite with the fair sex, knowing them all. A man
of "pep" and brains and set in his opinions. Bill has a wonderful memory,
and when arguing quotes the best of authorities to back up his arguments.
Possesses a characteristic laugh and keeps wonderful notes. Is bound to
be a success as a mechanical Engineer
Page  Fifty-two A. G. MEEKISON.
Captain of the Miller Cup rugby team and former "Yell King", "Meek"
is one of the Varsity's live wires. He is also known as the discoverer of
the logarithm of one, the 25-yard touch line (Victoria) and of a good place
to sleep in Ladner marsh while duck-shooting. Intends to be a mechanical
Engineer ,but would rather have a good time. He has the ability but
, would rather take life easy, a genial and an all round good fellow. Pet
saying,  "Let me think."
If consistency and constancy are requisites for success we can rest
assured that Freddy will enjoy a prosperous future. In spite of his absorption in extra-curriculum subjects he has managed to obtain his fair share
of knowledge of the required studies. Besides all this Fred usually can
be noticed among those present at the odd festivity. He gets his B. A.
this year, his B. A. Sc. next spring, and     !
Bill is perhaps best known as a rugby star, but his ability to produce
"jazz" on the piano is also a cause for fame. In his spare time he studies
chemical Engineering and even now displays a rare knowledge of the
properties of mortar (principally weight) for 'twas said of him last summer
"He packs a wicked hod". His genial personality coupled with his various
assortment of stories has gained for him a wide popularity. Favorite
expression    "Now you tell  one.  Todd."
When our flaxen-haired Goranson, who has been with us since his
freshman year, returns to enlighten his native haunts—New Westminster—
on the formation and mineral possibilities of the surrounding countryside,
the University will lose one of its cleverest students in Geology. Although
he seems to take much of University life casually, he can always hold his
own when it comes to writing examinations. Our best wishes go with him
as he leaves us for wider fields.
It would not be fair to disclose his early history. His future is difficult
to foretell; but his duties as a class Treasurer have certainly trained him
for the profession of tax-collector. His ability for asking puzzling questions
in lectures, indicates that he is a disciple of Socrates, but he is going to
Oe—only a metallurgist! However, we wish him the best of luck in his

Ed. has the distinction of being the only miner in the class, as we.ll as
the tallest by about a foot. Silent and solitary in his habits, he is rarely
seen outside his native haunts, in the inner recesses of the Mining Building.
He is a combination of "emms" being a Miner, Mountaineer and Musician.

"Tim" the Iron and Steel fiend! Although the possessor of a retiring
disposition, he is a born scrapper, with a seemingly inexhaustible supply ot
good humor. Nobody seems to know just why he chose his profession,
but he prepares for it with unflagging zeal, and is not to be side-tracked
by the lighter things of life. We predict that he will eventually become a
leading authority on all things ferruginous .
And behold the swish of the Pacific did attract him and he did take up
his abode in Victoria. He assuaged the thirst for knowledge at the university where he did work long and industriously. To his nose the odors of
the Chemistry Laboratory are like the perfume of the apple blossom, to his
ear the hiss of the boiling solution is the sweetest of music, for he doth
covet the degree of Chemical Engineer
Bob is the engineer's ideal, since everything he undertakes is carried
out with mathematical precision an an abundance of care and pains for
detail. Work, as a science man knows it, holds no terrors for him, as long
as he believes he is headed for the ultimate goal of success. Being endowed
with a nomadic disposition, and incidentally, the* necessary cash, he has
ample opportunity for gratifying this peculiar trait of character during
the summer vacations. The rigid flexibility of Boll's make-up ensures his
success as a mechanical  engineer.
George has played a prominent paart in college activities during his
four years with U. B. C. Last year he was President of Sc. 22 and this
year he is Vice-President of Science. He started last year as a Mechanical
Engineer, but this year discovered his affinity in Civil Engineering, and
can be found almost any time in the "C. E. dugout" designing the future
railways, bridges and dams of Canada. Q».iet and modest by nature,
George possesses brains and a pleasing personality, which will stand him
in good stead in his chosen profession.

/^%NCE more we arise to inscribe our name on the pages of history.
^*/ Our doings of the past year have been many and varied and to set
them all forth would require many volumes. Nevertheless, it
behoves us to present to the outside world at least a glimpse of the
great things that Science 23 has been putting over in the last six months.
Although somewhat depleted in numbers since last year, and scattered in
the pursuit of learning, we still maintain that "pep" and unity of purpose
for which we have become justly famous, and we do not allow our added
dignity in years and knowledge to interfere in any way with our enjoyment of life.
Our record in sport glows with added brilliance. In our midst we
have the mainstay of the rughy teams. Of the first we have Reg.,
Harry, Rex and George; of the second there are Mike, Cleve and Heber;
while the third team is represented by Bill Graham. The class team has
gained its laurels by winning the inter-class rugby. "Pewee" is a pillar
of strength in this team. We still have our snappy soccer players Stan,
and Rex, and what of our champion heavy-weight section, that brawny
tug-of-war team of which Hub Pearse forms the substantial anchor. In
the manly art of boxing we are represented by Hanna, while in the field
of fussing—but hold, too many names present themselves.
Which brings us to speak of the social side of our activities. Early
in the term, before our studies had had time to fill us with worry, we
decided to have a class-party. This was held at an abode known as the
Green Lantern, and here the class mustered in force, each bringing a
girl and a cake. The music was good, the girls were beautiful, and the
' supper was abundant, what more could any one want? Needless to say
it was a mighty good party.    Ask any of the girls who were there.
With the advent of Spring with all its springness, including the
snow and in spite of the dark days looming up in the near future, we felt
that we must once more cast aside our troubles for a night, and hold
another hop. Killarney was the chosen place, and the energies of a hardworking committee produced a dance that is not likely to be forgotten
by the crowd for a long time to come. Who could forget those perfect
surroundings, those sparklers, that band and those eats? For a really
friendly, informal party it would be hard to beat.
Our historical chapter would be far from complete were we to
omit from it the names of the celebrities who grace our class this year.
Among those present are Yell King Brick, whose famous sweater and no
less famous hair have made him a conspicious landmark on most public
occasions: Stan Say. the king of Science, who governs with a firm but
Page  Fifty-six
gentle hand; Premier Reg Hodson, who wields a wicked caucus; Cliffe
Mathers, the man behind the megaphone. Rand Davidson holds sway
over the Chemistry Society, and is fond of organizing "smell contests."
Doug Rae is the big noise in the Track Club. No less notable is our
president, Bill Graham, who is willing to start anything from altering
the time-table to arranging for the next party. Terry Guernsey is our
editorial genius, and is said to wield the blue pencil with great effect.
Surprising as it may seem, we still find time to indulge in a few lectures and a little lab-work. Go down into the steam lab any afternoon
about three, and there, behind a boiler or something you will find a
mechanical engineer, reclining in a chair with his feet up and his eyes
closed. Do not disturb him, he is probably inventing a new radial flow
impulse turbine.
Over in the Chemistry building too, we invite visitors, if they are
willing to take the risk. From the fumes that float skyward out of the
open windows and the noise of explosions and breaking glass, it is quite
evident that something is beng done, while ever and anon out of the
spreading mist rises the agonized cry of "Too high!"
The miners follow a quiet but useful life, and may be seen almost
any morning if it is fine, basking in the sun on the steps of the Mining
building whch they call home. Their hobby is watching that gay crowd
which comes from the Arts building, but they also work when so disposed. Our two geologists. Stan and Harry are considerably overworked these days, and it is rumored that they would sooner take
lectures than eat.
This year the loggers have left False Creek to the seagulls and
other things, and when they are not chasing^he elusive monument
around Central Park, their field-work is confined to making keys so that
they can open up an acquaintance with the trees.
Our four civils are somewhat elusive, and it is not known with what
dark pursuits they occupy that portion of their time in which they are
away from the rest of the class. Theo has been stepping out this year,
and is thinking of delivering a lecture before the Engineers Discussion
Club on "How to lead a gay life in Victoria," or "Eight in a Chevrolet."
You tell 'em, Theo!
Very soon now we shall be scattering to the farthest parts of the
country, each in search of the filthy lucre to enable him to return next
year, and make it the biggest year of all. Well, if we are going to beat
this one, we have got to go some. Page  Fifty-seven Page Fifty-eight SCIENCE '24, as a class, when viewed from its point of departure
in the fall of '20 are "hull-down" on the horizon of that treacherous sea of Applied Science. "Hull-down" only to those who
watched us start, however, aboard the lugger, as is well. Being out
from under the lee of the land, bad blows are not infrequent. The "log"
has it that Christmas witnessed a storm of the first magnitude. However, with hatches battered down and under double reefs we weathered
it and,, despite a falling glass, look forward with confidence (ostensibly at
any rate) to those educational if not meteorolgical gales which sweep our
sea in April.
We retain in truly wonderful fashion that incorrigible optimism
with which we entered the race. Buoyed up by this spirit its members
are slowly but surely selecting the particular engineering profession
which they intend to follow.
The process of selection is fraught with difficulties. For all but a
few it would appear that the Field work incidental to Surveying I. decided the class against Civil Engineering. It is one thing-, alas, to
survey a countryside with a discerning eye and an entirely different proceeding to survey the same piece of ground with a chain and transit, even
onto the third and fourth place of decimals. In the same way Kinematics has robbed Mechanical Engineering of much of its glamour,
while those who would follow Chemical Engineering through the fog
of nitric acid invariably attendant in Chem. II. lab., must indeed be inspired. Those who would emulate Thos. A. Edison in the Electrical
World are faced with the insurmountable wall of Electricitv and Magnetism, camouflaged under the disarming "nom de guerre' Physics III.,
a wall against which the waves of our brightest intellect dash in vain.
Still, even under such adverse conditions and obscured in the fog
of battle we are, as a class, arriving at our various choices.
Three of our number have not only elected their profession, but
having been patiently pursuing the study of it these many months, they
may be observed (with good visibility) on Saturday mornings, surreptitiously scaling logs in the vicinity of tidewater. These followers of
foresty get right next to nature in the study of their profession during
the summer months. So close in fact that they spend most of the
winter pulling the devil's clubs out of their anatomies.
Through the warp and woof of intensive study roves the bright
thread of the class athletic record. "Buck" Buchanan, an original
member of '24 who left us last year to follow other courses of learning,
carried off the grand aggregate at the track meet last October. Ternan,
Gwyther and Carlisle uphold in more than brilliant fashion the name
of the class in our major sport. Intermediate rugby finds many keen
followers from our ranks. In soccer, "Bobby" Jackson has skippered
the 'Varsity team through one of its most successful seasons. He is
aided in no consirerable manner by his outside left, "Scotty" Rusbury.
The coach of the 'Varsity's first fifteen, C. G. McLachlan, is of us.
The work of the team speaks volumes for him. Rowing—the latest
innovation in 'Varsity sports circles is closely followed by S~. '24. Cyril
Jones and J. R. MaeLaren, pulling stroke- and two respectively in the
'Varsity boat. We are known on the basketball floor and it will be remembered that it was a '24 man who broke the^tajte in the eight-mile
relay race from Point Grey last spring. ■*-
Toward the close of last term, in eager acceptance of Dr. and Mrs.
Davidson's invitation to hold a class partv at their home, we attacked
en masse on the evening of Saturday, November 5, aided by a map,
drawn by Dr. Davidson and a few remarks on the topography of Ker-
risdale, we arrived on schedule. En passant it might be remarked that
the reputation of the Dr. and Mrs. Dr. as hosts would have insured our
arrival under any circumstances. The happiest "get-together" the class
has ever had came to an end with "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow," for
Dr. Davidson and, "For She's a Jolly Good Fellow," for Mrs. Doctor.
There with three cheers for both, the class re-embussed for their respective homes.

Among superior Science youth
We nurses take our place.
We learn so many profound truths
That Arts would fear to face.
At Varsity we spend two years,
Of study, work and play
Then two years more of graver fears
At hospital 'cross the way.
Yet back once more to College Halls
We come, ere we are free,
Five years of toil with manv falls
To gain B. A. Sc.
We dabble  in  Philosophy,
In  Logic,  Physics,  too,
In English, Ec, and Chemistry,
In Lab.—the session through. ■
We chase bacilli, fight with germs,
To disect bugs we dare,
We cut up rabbits, slice up worms,
And. draw what is not there   !
And when in caps and aprons white
Walk many a weary mile,
With dread disease wage constant fight,
Fold dressings, pile on pile.
We  make a thousand beds a day,
But just one rule we dread,
At ten o'clock—we must obey—
"Lights  out!  and  all   in  h°d."
An uphill climb of joy and pain,
Yet well  worth while—the toil.

Page Sixty-one rf\ UR first and most enjoyable entertainment this year was given
\^ for us by Miss Johns, Assistant Professor of Nursing, shortly
after the session opened, where we had the chance of improving
friendships already strongly cemented in faith and goodfellowship.
Miss Johns represents to us, the spirit of our new endeavor, the
earnest striving toward a desired goal. We remember that she told us
of the hospitals and Universities in the United States, which are also
venturing a combined course, and that we form an important link in
the chain which is being forged to strengthen the nursing profession.
Holding the double position of Director of Nursing Education in the
Hospital and Assistant Professor of Nursing in the University, Miss
Johns has a clear view both of the difficulties and advantages in our
course. In the, confidence she inspires; there is a quality which makes
it imperative for us to help further her vision by giving her of our
best, both in work and understanding.
An important step^ in the work of our Society is the fact that this
year for the first time we have a definite place in the organized student
life of the University-—being subsidiary to the Women's Undergraduate
Society and represented on that Executive by our President.
Another progressive step is that, beginning September next, all
students in this course in training at the General Hospital will be
registered as University students, as well as those attending classes
here. At last our degree has been decided upon. It is to be B.A. Sc.
(Nursing) and we are justly proud of being ranked among those superior
beings—the Science Engineers. We have proved our allegiance in
still another way by adopting the Science pin, marked with our year.
In February we entertained at a tea, given through the kindness
of Mrs. A. G. Creelman, at her charming home, Laurier Avenue. Over
sixty guests were present, including the Directors of Nursing, of the
Vancouver General Hospital, wives of the Faculty, and representatives
from various Student Executive bodies.
That interest in our course is becoming more widespread, is shown
by the fact that at the beginning of this session there were more than
twice as many Nursing students registered as last year.   We hear that

our course is being keenly watched by Universities in the East, as a
pioneer movement in its particular line.
Meetings have been held monthly at the Nurses' Home where student problems have been discussed. The following have acted as

President, Miss Leila A. Carson; Vice-President, M^ss Beatrice Pearce;

His serious mien and commanding height, together with that air of
dignity would make it seem necessary to say "sir" but we know better and
address him as Kid Riddell. A love for animals and Ayrshires in particular deterred him from pursuing a degree in Arts. As a judge of livestock he is known, having twice represented U. B. C. in Portland at the

Who's that tall distinguished looking gentleman with the fair hair and
blue eyes? Don't you know? That is Bert, our crack animal man. He is
strong for Holsteins and spends all his time tickling them and (perhaps
somebody else) at Carnation Farm. Bert is president of the Live Stock
Club and secretary of the Ag. Undergraduate, besides taking an important
part at the Portland Judging contest.

see very little of him in our clashes.
"Ernie" or George Ernest Wesley as he is announced on state occasions has a greater standing acquaintance around these temples of knowledge than anyone of whom we know. A horticulturist by inclination, he
has also endeavored to major in all other four departments as well. I

to future thristy generations of students the "recipe" of his far famed

Page Sixty-seven The History of the Graduating Class of Agric. '22
^g% UJ_,LY convinced that the Agriculture of the province was coming
||" into its own, seven seeds of knowledge located themselves at
*"* the University in September 1918 to take chances in the college
soil. In the process of germination we attained a certain measure of
success. But a good chronicle, before detailing any of the benefits that
we have reaped, would first cast a light on some of the perils through
which we have passed and the hardships that we have endured. Often
will we remember those cold sunless days of suspence, before our courses
were arranged. But. following a certain event on a clear, calm Saturday
night—need I mention what took place—though considerably disturbed
in mind and bruised of body, we soon regained our former self possession.
And after the reception, finding the soil congenial and rich in plant
food, normal growth commenced.
■ Having adopted to the new environment, more or less successfully,
we began to get our roots well established and to draw on the! storehouse of knowledge. However even during this period we had our
difficulties. But the food for thought was plentiful and things moved
merrily along. And I may say that we were not all shallow-rooted.
Several members of a deep root system were able to penetrate to the
subsoil and taste of this vast wealth of food, so little utilized by many
plants. This was the subsoil of college life—student activity—upon
which depends to such a large extent the value of the upper layer. And
in passing this generation of plants wishes to reiterate the request that
future plants will send their roots a little deeper that they may derive
the most from a bountiful college soil.
In the first year of development we were all distinctly related, being
species of the same family, to wit—J. Chu, R. A. Fisher, J. B. Leavens,
M. S. McKechnie, W. More, B. S. Sweeting and W. Yip. These species
showed great vitality and adaptability, and promised to take possession
of the community, wh^i the great check came to all plants—namely: the
ravages of influenza. This stole from us our stuanchest and most promising individual Wilfred More, which had shown great possibiltes
for deep feedng and we will always feel the loss of such a stalwart plant.
Followng a hard winter we reappeared in the spring and with us a new
species—G.E.W. Clarke. We flourished in harmony and were able to
hold our own with foreign plants. Socially we blossomed forth and"
displayed our initiative in a well planned class dance. After establishing
in several other fields, including that of the Discussion Club, we met
with a late spring frost that cut down two of our species, which were
lacking in adaption to the French and Mathematical soils, namelv, W.
Yip and J. Chu.
Page Sixty-eight
However in the autumn we rapidly overcame that setback and in
addition took great pleasure in welcoming six new species to our midst,
known by the following scientific names R. L. Fraser, C. D. Kelly, G. H.
Harris, A. Mannel, W. J. Riley and W. H. Riddell. They were ideal
companion crops and helped us to keep up a more "united strength,"
gained by more intense use of the land. Our members entered new
fields, including those of the play, music and debate. We increased our
.foothold in the realms that we had invaded. But again we were destined to lose yet another of our members, for the "flu" returned, reaping
among the strongest and R. L. Fraser succumbed. We will ever cherish
the memory of this noble plant that helped us to win our way into the
fields of athletics and debate.
The following autumn found us feeding in the soils of those departments to which we were most adapted. All the while our roots
were feeding still deeper in the vast storehouse of Agricultural knowledge. We began to take unto us appearances of further maturity and
certain of our types showed promise of some grace. But this season
ushered in another crisis in our growth. The freshets of Chemistry 3
worked havoc among us and tried our foundations to the utmost. But
we had not taken root in sand and time worked a complete recovery,
though development that year was necessarily, as if a blight had come
upon us.
In the spring- we found a new plant in our midst, of that well
known species—H. D. Greenwood. Meanwhile we made further inroads in the realm of the debate and the season was one generally of
Again the spring frost appeared and tried several of us severely,
so that the majority of us could wish them of a less frequent occurrence.
When growth recommenced after the spoil's harvest, we realized
that we had but one season left in this favorable soil. Then we would
be transplanted into the larger fields of life, where the fruits of that
which we had absorbed would be put to the test. Time has fled on a
swift swing and already the end is nigh. In drawing to a close this
history of the successful evolution of their understanding, the plants
wish to express their appreciaton of the efforts of the leaders of the
varous realms and particularly the efforts of their Honorary President,
Professor P. A. Boving who. together with the other chiefs helped to
ensure their successful growth.

S USUAL Ag. 23 started
the fall term with lots of
'pep."   At the outset she
H showed her sound business judg-
| ment by taking over Chalmer's
| gymn. for all students in Agri-
m culture.    This has proved to be
one   of   the   greatest   unifying
forces that we have.   No sooner had she rested
from  these  endeavors  than  she  was  called
upon   to   send  almost  forty  percent   of  her
number to the "International Livestock Judging Competition" at Portland, where, although
he is a horticulture man, J. J. Woods made
a  splendid  showing.     The  dairy   team  was
chosen wholly from the third year and while
it did not come first at Portland, yet it came
only about sixty points behind the winning
team.   Honors fell to John Rye when he ran
away with  the first prize  for judging Ayr-
shires.    Archie Blair gave them all a thrill
when he came just a few points behind the
king of all the amateur dairy cow judges at
the Exhibition.
Our year can well be proud of the public
positions held by some of its members. Among
the most important of these positions is the presidency of the "Literary
and Scientific Department," which has been held by A. E.  Richards.
John Pye has been the secretary of the "Agricultural Discussion Club."
'23 has done her share in Athletics. In the track meet Harry Fulton came second in the mile as did Archie Blair in the three mile race.
We hope this year, as last to put three men in the Relay team.
We arbitrarily take first place in this little bit of eulogism because
of the four options offered, the majority elected "Hort." Of course we
don't blame the other fellows, they are mighty fine boys, (we all belong
to the same class), but we fel sorry for them as they will not follow
the flowery path, that is laid out for us.
Page Seventy
Though five of us are majoring in "Hort." we have various kinds
of fancies and lead various kinds of lives and, if report is true, some of
us have various kinds of wives (from May to September). Here is a
brief resume of the diversity of work indulged in last summer.
Bill Mathers worked at Point Grey, endeavoring to find new and
to improve old varities of berries._
Ray Curvers worked on the Island and found out why berry growers
do not have larger net returns for capital expended.
Ab Richards sojourned in the Mission-Hatzic district and supervised the packing and shipping of berries for the East. Later he chased
coddlings, moths and other things in the Okanagan valley.
Sperry Phillips spent the summer at Camp Lister. He does not say
much of his activities except that he dynamited stumps and killed bugs.
There must be, however, sometime for which he is not willing to account.
Jack Woods almost went astray. He worked at Courtenay on a
dairy ranch. However he has recovered his senses and is now a confirmed "Hort." student. It is said, nevertheless, that the "moo" of a
cow still brings back pleasant memories.
We take the odd trip to Point Grey and do a little work and make
a lot of notes. When the work is over we occasionally get a chance
to enjoy the raw fruits of the farm.
I dare say it is time to close. Some may say we are nothing but
braggarts but really we have been most modest in our praises. Well,
so long, till next year; we then shall have blossomed out into seniors in
a truly Horticultural and Botanical mannet^-fhen we shall be proud
and haughty and shall not stoop to such light- and foolish ramblings as
the above trash.
Before entering on their third year Agriculture students are forced
to decide whether they would be Agronomists or bums. Unfortunately
most of '23, lured by the false voices of other lines chose the latter
course, and left only one member to tread the path outlined by the
world's greatest Agriculturists. And what a member! Ever heard of
Harry Fulton? That's the guy—a real rip-snorter, by heck! Unsatisfied with learning Agronomy in the winter, he spent, last summer at the University farm, gleaning further knowledge and cooking his own.
But don't be mislead, Horticulturists, Poultrymen and Animal Husbandry specialists, realizing the error of their ways and trying to atone,
elect work in Agronomy and keep Harry company. So Agiculture '23
may yet produce more than one great man.
Poultry Husbandry.
Well, folks here we are. Who ? Oh Yes! Why we are the chicken-
■men, three of us. First there is "Cap" Welland, globe trotter and ex-
president of the O.A.C. freshmen. Then there is Gord. Sandon our
scientific youth and future Ph. D. He uses big words to express potent
thoughts. Lastly there comes Cliff Barry the elongated bull-fighter,
'nuff sed. (We forgot to mention Everton Lloyd and "As" Asmundson,
but since they are merely our professors further reference is unnecessary.)
Knowing what we do, plus what we have been told by Messrs. Lloyd
and Asmundson, it is difficult to see why all of Agriculture '23 did not
major in Poultry Husbandry. Ours is a great future. If you doubt
it call at room 21B. and interview Prof. Lloyd. But the future is not
all. The present must be taken into consideration, and that is where
we shine. With due respect to the other members of our class, and
realizing the magnitude of our statement, we have no hesitation, never-
theles in saying that our experiences overshadow those of all others.
What joy is there like taking apart incubators with one's feet frozen
and the rest freezing fast? Last fall we took a trip through Chinatown,
ably escorted by Mr. Lunn Sing. We received a glimpse into Chinese
methods of Poultry keeping and also received some Chinese cigars.
Barry smashed his (part of it) and Prof. Lloyd called the ambulance.
As an egg-candler Welland should be employed in an egg-breaking factory. However that is immaterial to him so long as the A and C
grocery supplies the eggs. When it comes to fitting egg-cars for the
shipment of eggs we hand it to Landon. He can get into the way of
the workmen better than anyone else of our acquaintances.
But in spite of our many and varied experiences we are still a part
of Agriculture '23. We share many things with the rest of the class.
We are as financially insolvent as the rest of the gang and are as ignorant of anything pertaining to organic Chemistry as anyone. We feel
as keenly as any, the inadequancy of our present accommodations and
look forward to a time when future students of Poultry Husbandry will
have the equipment necessary to produce men better qualified than ourselves to carry on the promotion of a great and growing industry. But
if our hardships are acute, those of our professors are ten times worse.
To them goes the credit of carrying on under the present adverse
Animal Husbandry
The third year has three men specializing in "Animal Husbandry."
Besides the professors, one of the great attractions of this course is the
large amount of practical agricultural work . The three, A. Blair, John
Pye and L. Bennett, are fond of the dairy cow. In fact, the second is
so fond of Ayrshires that fear is being expressed that special legislation
will have to be made to prevent his monopolizing the business along
that line. The three visit Point Grey twice a week on sheep judging
expeditions. The boys love the animals they are so docile! When referring to them on ;a wet day Archie's chief saying is "fed up." But
the sheep have other visitors also. They act as hosts to a small six
legged animal commonly called a "tick." The class was somewhat
alarmed the other day when Prof. Stillwell informed it that the bite
of the tick often caused paralysis, continuing his information however,
he said that it was the eight legged species that practised this art.
Nevertheless the former kind can be uncomfortable.
Two wondorous eyes are blue as skies,
Two ruby lips to tempt a lover.
The lights were low,—beside was Joe—
Smack? Thrills?—Alas! He was her brother!

Who helps to make this class aliv^e?

ME HAVE survived the summer working period, with as few
casualties as possible and are well on our way to the completion of another successful year, reinforced by members from
Arts and Science. The chief feature effecting our life is the Aggie Community Club which houses nine of our members. We have succeeded in
following our motto not to let lectures or labs, interfere with our education and are enjoying life to its fullest.
Among the events numbered on our calendar for the year were our
debate with Ag. '25 and our dance in co-operation with that industrious
class of freshmen. In the debate Ernie Hope and Charlie Barten skilfully held forth upon the merits of free trade, but unfortunately our
noble rivals were too much for us. The dance was held in the Laural
Tennis Court on the 26th of January. Needless-to-say it was enjoyed by
all and the only thing anyone could say against it was that it was too
In athletics too the Class of Agriculture '24 held its own contributing several of its members to both the 'Varsity and Agricultural teams.
Russell swings a wicked stick on the Junior hockey team. "Doc."
Plummer and Ernie Hope have played on various varsity rugby teams
during the year. Many of our members have also taken part in the
track meet and other inter-class sports with some degree of success.
Hugh Russell who conducts the activities of the class as president
has ambition toward growing peaches and parsimmons but has as yet
only succeeded in growing a moustache (witness Xmas plays). Goldie'
succeeds Howard as the "Little John" of Ag. '24. John Alec who hails
from Guelph, hopes to learn enough in two colleges to make a success
of farming in the Cariboo. Gord. Roley, formally of Science '24, is
Athletic representative of the Faculty of Agriculture. His duties consist of superintending bull-fights and taking a part in upholding the
glory of the back row in the fights in the bus out to the Point.
Herb. Chester who joined us from Science now swears up and down
by Agriculture. It might be noted in passing that he is the only redheaded man in the class.
Doc. Plummer, rugby player, school teacher, motorcyclist and moralist has become the steadiest man in the class presenting in this respect a
decided contrast to "Vic." Eby, who is known to have paraded around
in public places, disguised as a bull. Vic. lends dignity to the community
house when he dons his horn—rimmed spectacles and holds forth on
his pet theme, "Votes for Women."
Darling claims that he is nobody's darling, for although he takes
lectures with '24 and '25 he is a member of neither one of these classes.

Page  Seventy-three Post-Graduates
HMONG "the gay child hearts and the child faces" of present-day
undergraduate, one may easily distinguish the members of former years who have returned to U.B.C. Some of them have even
attained to the dignity of members of the staff . Freda Wilson, famous
of old for her affection for the Hottentot Huts, is putting would-be
bacteriologists on the trail of the microbe. A. E. Boss and Ken Gillie
have the task of restraining the daring experimenters in the fields of
chemistry. So far they have been fairly successful in averting the
blowing-up of the Chemistry lab. If you are brave enough to risk a
noisesome death by sulphuretted hydrogen, you may find there Freda
Handford and Violet Dunbar. They seem to thrive on that atmosphere,
or perhaps the stylish lab. aprons which they wear keep them from
noticing it. Marion Mounce, that versatile genius who took an Arts
course, an Aggie course and a course in catering, (special attention to
chicken sandwiches) is still with us as Extension Assistant under the
Burrell Grant. "Our friend Taussig," as Dr. Boggs would say, is now
being annotated and expounded by Les. Fournier. Judging from his
cheerful expression, it is not so difficult to make connections between
Economics and Freshie heads as has sometimes been supposed.
Rena Grant and Dorothy Blakey are usually to be seen staggering
under bundles of essays, or may be found in solemn conference with
Dr. Sedgewick, discussing "English as she is wrote" by Freshmen.   As
asistant in Mathematics, F. J. Studer seems to have found his proper
niche, and takes a fiendish delight in hurling "logs" at wondering
Freshies. P.D.I. Honeyman is Assistant in Assaying, but still finds time
to exhort the students on College spirit as of yore. Hazel McConnell
divides her time between private lectures with Dr. Ashton and trying
to impart her French accent to Arts '25.
A considerable number of graduates of U.B.C. have returned for
further study. Bonnie Gill, Donna Kerr, Myrtle Kelpatrick and Margaret
Morrison are getting practical experience in scientific subjects in the
General Hospital lab. Other devotees of the 'ologies are Earle Foerster
and W. S. Rogers. Ethel Harris, after a year at Columbia University,
is overwhelming the English department with her essays and the French
Department with her Parisian accent. Crute and Fisher are both
studying sociology, but the latter's inclination toward "melerdramer"
has enveighled him into taking English as well, while Crute's ability to
harangue is being further trained by Philosophy. Louie Stirk has not
yet lost her love for arguing on historical subjects. Others taking;
graduate work in Arts are Flora MacKinnon, J. M. Schell, L. A. Morrison, K. Shemezu, and B. H. Wallace. C. O. Swanson and "Spex" Melville have been unable to tear themselves away from the Science buildings
and indulge in lab. work ad infinitum.
" Hope Deferred Maketh The Heart Sick
McGillAnnual, 1911
The agitating question as to the location of the new University has
been decided. Twenty-five thousand dollars have been appropriated for
the clearing of the site at Point Grey, and the large, handsome stone
buildings will soon rear their dignified walls to the western winds. For
the Commission has wisely decided to place British Columbia's fount of
learning in one of the most beautiful spots it were possible to choose.
Looking out across the Gulf of Georgia to where the Olympic mountains
rear their snow-capped tops over the horizon, the student of the U.B.C.
cannot but develop a certain spirituality which such natural grandeur
always engenders in the most matter-of-facts souls, and if any university
is necessary in this western world, with its abnormal development, with
its ceaseless rush and roar of business, with its money-making ideals, it
is one which will turn out broad, normally developed men, with the
Page  Sevr'"-'<rur
ability to see and grasp the wonderful business advantagesof this great
new country, but with the understanding to enjoy its privileges—the
wonder of its sunsets—the grandeur of its mountains—the beauty of
its silents fiords.
All credit, we say, b to the deep-seeing men who realized this, and
with intuitive judgment placed the university where it could not only
inculcate and sound principles, but are "je e sai quoi," that soul quality
ledge and sound principles, but that "je ne sai quoi," that soul quality
which is necessary to all truly great men.
McGill B. C. is the great university which is to be. Some of us will
not enjoy the privileges of the larger insituation, but there are a great
many among us who will. To them will fall the honor of first writing
their signatures, "M.A. and B.Sc, British Columbia." A.E.Richards E. Eveleigh W.'O.'Banfield

XAST autumn, after three years of successful publication, the
"Ubyssey" was considered sufficiently well established to merit
an enlargement in the size of the sheet. This reform, which had
been the dream of all previous Publications Boards, was accordingly
put into practice: the dimensions of the page were increased to 10 1-2
by 14 inches, which meant that some 3000 additional words had to be
furnished each week. Of course such a change necessitated some reorganization in the staff of the paper, and various experiments had to
be made during the first few weeks of publication.
Before long, however, the editorial personnel had been expanded to
a point which enabled them to handle the work efficiently, and the
"Ubyssey" flourished with renewed vigour. One of the most important
innovations was a column—which rapidly grew into a page—devoted
to the lighter aspects of college life—a miscellany of pilferings, puns
and personalities. "Muck-a-Muck" as this section was entitled—the
phrase being taken from the college yell—soon became one of the most
popular features of the paper.
A sporting editor was added to the staff, and a special page set
aside for his news; alumni notes proved a valuable link between graduates and students; while a "Literary Corner" each week gave the
necessary touch of seriousness to the journal. Yet another column,
"The Lady, the Lad and the Line" was devoted to advice o netiquette
and social intercourse that displayed deep erudition on the part of the
omniscient "Sphinxette."
The pages were further varied by the use of a few illustrations,
cartoons on events of the day alternating with portraits of students who
figured in the news.
As to the actual place and significance of the "Ubyssey" in the
student life of the University, it is difficult to make any pronouncement.
Throughout the term an effort was maintained toward a definite editorial policy, with the dual purpose of interpreting the main phases of
student opinion in more or less definite form, and putting before the
undergraduate body the facts about various matters on which it was
necessary for them to form a decision. The attempt was also made to
have the "Ubyssey" act as an interpreter between the students and the
But the premier function of the paper, and the medium through
which its deals had to be put into practise, was the providing of news.
To give a comprehensive review of what happens each week in all the
spheres of college activity is a task which sometimes approaches the
superhuman; The "Ubyssey" fulfilled this function in proportion to the
amount of co-operation it received from the student organizations and
the individual contributors. Page Seventy-seven Victoria
YF\EAR Arabella:
jj^f Your thrilling description of the Church Social has not yet
made me regret having spent the last three days of my holidays
in Victoria.    Shall I tell you all about it?—My dear, the boat went at
ten thirty Friday morning—didn't we have to rush!    Although it was
a beautiful morning, we had no sooner left Vancouver than the boat
began to sway—and—it was getting rough.    We certainly felt funny,
(Oh! I mean queerly!) but on Miss Bollert's assuring us that "if we
felt funny it was a sure sign we weren't sea-sick" we answered that
"All softening, overpowering knell,
The torsin of the saul,—the dinner bell."
A double desert, and a considerable calming of the waves, sustained us
until we reached Victoria at three-thirty.
After a grand scramble for rooms we rushed to the harbor to see
our 'Varsity Rowing Club race the James Bay Athletic Association—but
all we saw was our crew disappearing around the corner—on the wrong
course! Disappointed in this we went in search of Roger's famed chocolate shop, only to find that it, like the rest of Victoria, was closed for
the day. Fate seemed to be against us, for when we returned to the
J.B.A.A. we found that the Badminton games has already been played;
however the two lone girls who had seen the games told us that 'Varsity
had won all three.
After supper we took one of Victoria's eleven cars (they each have
a different number, my dear!) to the High School gym., in order to
see three basketball games between 'Varsity and representative Victoria
teams. The brilliant playing of every member of our girl's team won
them the first game of the evening; but, alas for our men! The 'Varsity-
Senior B put up a hard fought and fast game, but the final whistle found
Victoria College leading 18—32. The third game, between our Senior
A team and J.B.A.A. seemed hopeful for us at first; however with Lacey
and "Wilky" on the casualty list (although both gamely played to the
end) our scoring lagged and the final count was 25—16 against us. .
After the last game the rooters deserted the gallery for the floor,
and we danced to the strains of a quite un-Victorian orchestra, until the
voice of a rigorous trainer "shoed" the rugby team back to the hotel
at eleven o'clock. You can't guess how I hated to miss those last few
dances—it almost made me wish he wasn't on the team.
Page Seventy-eight
On Saturday morning (a deep, dark secret, my dear!) we slept too
late to see the girls hockey game; but our more energetic "co-mates in
exile" told us that our girls played a very good game against the Victoria
Ladies who undoubtedly had the advantage both in weight and experience ; the final score was 6—0 in favor of Victoria.
In spite of a cold drizzle on Saturday afternoon we hied to Oak
Bay, with our 50c to see the great event of the trip. The intermediate
rugby game, which was played first resulted in a draw; Victoria won
a well-run relay-race by a few feet, and then the Senior Rugby game
played. Of course, you read in that "Ubyssey" I sent you, the account
of the McKechnie Cup Game, so that there is no need of me trying to
describe here the thrills I got during that game.
We missed the afternoon car back to town after the games, but by
"wanton wiles" succeeded in getting to the Y.M.C.A. in time to see the
swimming and diving. In spite of the fact that our mermaids and
mermen were contesting against dominion champions we won 18 points
to Victoria's 36, so that you see we did quite creditably.
In the evening the J.B.A.A. entertained us at a dance in the Empress
Hotel. The orchestra (shall I mention the pianist especially?) was "pep"
personified. And that moonlight waltz—but why elaborate? Do you
wonder that I was sorry when the Home Waltz told us that 12 o'clock
had come?
On Sunday, after a combined breakfaslffand lunch we all rushed
for the boat, and at two-thirty, with a lusty Kitsilano we left Victoria in
peate until next year.
The trip home?—well, there was music below deck and above—
suffice it to say that: "Love gilds the scene, and women guide the plot."
We arrived in Vancouver at seven-thirty, so that 9 o'clock lectures next
nlorning were not an utter impossibility; which reminds me that I
must.'prepare my English 9,—
Cheerio old thing,
P.S.—By the way, did you hear what "shober owl" blew out the
lights at the Dominion Hotel on Sunday morning? Jinks
High Jinks
/^\N A CERTAIN memorable night in the month of March there
Vir foregathered in our staid halls a motley throng of peoples of
every clime and age to celebrate ye time—honored High Jinks. "Among
those present" were quaint, old-fashioned ladies accompanied by courtlv
squires, Egyptian princesses, gay pierots and jolly old clowns. A
mysterious Shiek stalked through the crowd, and a shy, little bunny
who had crept in stayed to gaze wonderingly at the curious throng.
Dancing was the order of the evening, only interrupted to give place
to some amusing skits. A realistic Bowery song and dance was followed
by a moving version of Lord Ullin's daughter. After Lady Godiva had
ridden bravely through the streets of the town came the crowning
achievement of the evening, "Barnacles" an uproarious parody of the
Christmas tragedy "He.'
Supper over, the prizes for the best costumes were distributed, after
which dancing was resumed until a late hour.
Everybody said it was the jolliest High Jinks ever held in our University, and for once everybody was right.
Among Those Present
The night was dark, the night was chill
The rain was falling with a will.
"We shall not dance to-night," they said
And shook their heads and went to bed.
Next morn, the paper thus avowed,
"Among the happy dancing crowd
That tripped it with a right good will,—
Miss Maude Elite, Miss Betty Hill—
The moon had set, the stars were out,
The biting wind roamed about.
"We shall not skate to-night," they said
And shook their heads and went to bed.
Next morn the head-line blazed in red,    _   -.
"The ice was thin! Two Students Dead*£"
Alas! an early grave they'll fill,
Miss Maude Elite, Miss Betty Hill."
"We'll seek revenge," the maidens cried.
"That's twice yon paper has falsified."
Among those present at Peter's gate
A reporters soul—why more relate?

^0 OR some time prior to the conclusion of the session 1920-21, it
jM had been found increasingly difficult to co-ordinate the various
college activities in such a way as to do justice to each and every
one. Accordingly at the conclusion of that year, with a view to remedying this defect, a new office was created, namely, that of Marshal, carrying with it a position on the Students' Council.
As will readily be realized such a post carried with it many responsibilities of constructive organization, and amongst the many functions
which almost immediately came under the control of this new official,
the following were perhaps the most important, namely: The street
parade on the night of initiation, the "pep" rallies preceeding the Stanford game, the Victoria trip, the many details of Varsity week, and the
hundred and one details connected with the staging of the sports events
throughout the year; all of which involved an amount of time and consideration perhaps only fully realized by those who have been fortunate or unfortunate enough to have been connected with similar though
minor projects.
Such in brief was the almost overwhelming task which confronted
Sid. Anderson, our first Marshal. Little need be added to what is already
known of the excellent way in which he handled these many duties and it
can confidently be said that the work of those who follow in the future,
will be materially lightened by the sincere way in which Sid. has carried
out his duties this   vear.

McKechnie Cup Series
-^I^VER since the formation of a Rugby Club at Varsity, its ruling
JJ^J ambition has been to enter a team in the series for the McKechnie
Cup, emblematic of the Provincial Championship, and thus place
Varsity on a par with the best B. C. teams. Up to Christmas 1920, this
step was regarded in much the same light as the migration to Point Grey,
but when the Varsity team under the able leadership of Art. Lord and
Pharic Honeyman, defeated the famous Stanford team, the proposed
step was regarded in a much more favorable light, and this season, despite
many objections, the rugby club decided to enter the senior team in com-
.petition for the McKechnie Cup.
That the step was justified, has been amply shown by the fine record
of the team which has gone through the series without losing a game,
thus winning the long coveted cup, presented several years ago by our
Chancellor, to grace our hall cabinet for the coming year, and also accomplishing Varsity's second outstanding achievement on the rugby
The season opened on Thanksgiving day with Vancouver opposing
Varsity. "Gee" Ternan started the scoring early in the game by dropping a field goal, and toward the end of the half gave a pass to Al.
Buchanan, who went over in the corner. The try was not converted, and
the half ended with Varsity leading 7-0. The second half was much
more even than the first, Vancouver perhaps had a shade the better of.,
the play and Domoney at full-back was called upon to stop many dribbling rushes, by falling on the ball. His work at this time was one of
the features of the game, despite the fact that he was playing with two
cracked ribs. Vancouver scored once in this half, making the final score
7-3. Owing to the fact that Palmer was forced to retire with an injury
early in the game, the combination of the back division was badly broken
up and individual efforts were the order of the day. The outstanding
players were Buchanan, Ternan and Domoney. while McLeod did some
very useful kicking on the wing. No particular forwards outshone the
rest, but the pack worked excellently, as it always does, and undoubtedly
bore the brunt of the game.
The game in Victoria on January 7th, was by far the hardest game
of the year and probably the most spectular in Varsity rugby history.
Once again the vaunted Varsity fighting spirit came to the rescue and
the blue and gold players staged a whirlwind come-back which rushed
the Victorians off their feet and scored the winning points in the last five
minutes. It was a wonderful finish to a fine game and the faithful supporters who accompanied the teams to Victoria, got enough thrills to
last them the rest of the vear.
The game started with Victoria on the offensive and they continued
to have somewhat the better of the play, until towards the end of the
first half when they scored a try, which was not converted. The remainder of the half was featured by strenuous rugby, with no advantage
on either side. From the beginning of the second half, the Varsity team
set the pace and Victoria was seldom dangerous. As the remaining time
became shorter, the blue and gold forwards kept increasing their pace,
in an effort to score, until they were travelling at a terrific rate which
seemed to be continually on the increase as time shortened. With only
five minutes to go, the Varsity pack pulled out of a scrum on Victoria's
twenty nine, and Frank Penwill went over for a try after a short three-
quarter run. Val. Gwyther added the necessary points for victory, with
a beautiful convert from a rather difficult angle.
The big feature of the game was undoubtedly the fine work of the
forwards, particlarly toward the end of the game, when they set a pace
not seen in these parts for some time. Harry Gunning played perhaps
the most spectacular game in the pack, but the heavy-weights who do
most of the shoving, namely, Gross, Gwyther, Hodson and Greggor,
worked tirelessly. In the back division, Rex Cameron played a very
heady game.
The second game with Vancouver, while not so spectacular as the
Victoria game, was productive of better team-work, particularly in the
back division, where straight running and accurate passing were much
more in evidence than usual. Ternan opened the scoring early in the
game with a wonderful dropped goal from thirty yards out, and soon
after was stopped two yards from the line after a brilliant run, Hodson
going over for the try.    This ended the scoring in the first half.
Vancouver scored in the second half on a free-kick and staged
several three-quarter runs which were stopped in the nick of time by
the hard tackling of Buchanan, Bill Cameron and Domoney. Just before the final whistle, Buchanan made Varsity's third score from a loose
scrum. Al Bickell played an exceptionally good game, and Domoney
was in fine form.
The second game with Victoria was not played, owing to the poor
condition of the ground.
Great credit for the success of the team is due to Capt. Reg.Hodson,
Gordon McLachlan (Coach), and Lome Morgan (Trainer), for the
untiring energy and enthusiasm they have, displayed in perfecting the
best team that has ever worn the Varsity colors. Nor must the selection
committee of Hodson, Gross, McLachlan, Ternan, Buchanan and Gwyther
be forgotten, when expressions of appreciation are in order, for they
have gladly given their services in a very thankless role.

_^H\ANY moons have passed since December 26th, 1921, but these
wLllov/ pages would be incomplete were not some mention made of that
rugby classic, the Varsity-Stanford game. Last Christmas
marked the third time the Cardinal ruggers have stepped on to the field
at Brockton Point to battle with the Blue and Gold, and, as in the year
previous, they succumbed to the onslaught of our men.
As in that memorable first victory over Stanford a year ago, the
Varsity squad were supported by practically the whole student body and
the win this year, while mainly due to the gruelling training indulged in
by the team, was due also in part to co-operation and backing of the
students as a whole.
Previous to the game our energetic committee had journeyed out to
the grounds and prepared the grandstand and entrance for a fitting reception to the Califomians. The arch outside the gate, the words of
welcome on the fence opposite the grandstand, and the decorations on
the stand itself, all bore witness to the committee's enterprise.
All roads led to the Point that day and for an hour before the game
there was a constant stream of fans along the road to the gates. The
Northern end of the grandstand was reserved for Varsity rooters and
this section was soon filled with a restless and excited crowd, the vivid
skull caps and blue and gold streamers telling all and sundry that
Varsity was there in forces. Shortly before 2:30 the grandstand could
hold no more and the overflow spread around the oval until the crowd
were lined four deep at the back of the fence. A "Kla-how-ya" for the
crimson-clad and nifty looking visitors as they left the dressing room,
an ear-splitting "Skyrocket" for Varsity who came next, and an eager
hush settled down over the field as the teams lined up with the ball
between them.
Sharp at 2 :30, Stanford kicked off and for a minute or so kept the
play in the Varsity area. Then- the tide turned and steadily the blue and
gold forced the play down the field until Carlisle getting the ball from a
line-out was brought down within the visitors five-yards line. For five
•minutes the presure continued until a Cardinal player intercepted a pass
and started a dangerous looking rush which ended in mid-field. After
fifteen  minutes of even  play,  the  "Cards''  forced their  way  into the
Varsity twenty five. Our defence proved too good for them and McLeod relieved the tension with a fine dribbling run down the touch line
Gross came out of the ensuing tangle with the ball and when tackled,
passed neatly to Penwill who eluded the Cardinal backs and fell over
the line close to the posts for the first try. Gwyther added two points
with the kick. At this period, Bickell received a nasty kick on the
head and was taken off the field.
The remainder of the half was the most critical period of the game,
played as it was with only 14 men on the Varsity side. The visitors
got over our line after a beautiful dribbling rush but Domoney rendered
their efforts useless when he fell on the ball. A fine three-quarter run by
Stanford, nearly resulted in a score, but the man with the ball was
brought down before he could get over. Shortly before the whistle blew
for half time, Peter, when trying a drop kick, twisted his knee rather
The second period opened with the Varsity on the long end of a
5-0 score but with prospects of completing the game without the services
of Bickell, Meekison appeared before the rooters' stand to add his efforts
to those of Yell King Anderson. When the teams reappeared, the
rooters redoubled their efforts and the crowd raised a high pitch of
enthusiasm when Bickell trotted out from the "showers" with his head
encased in Pug Greggor's helmet.
With players and supporters full of pep ai$ the winning feeling
prevading the air, the second half started with a rush. A particularly
fine run in which Hodson, Gunning and Greggor were the shining lights,
proved fruitless when the ball went over the dead line. A few minutes
later Ternan got possession of the ball on the Cardinals twenty-five line
and a very brilliant swerving side-stepping run took "Gee" to within
ten yards of the line. Gross tearing along behind at full speed received
the pass and went over for Varsity's second try. which was not converted.
During the remainder of the game, the Cardinal scquad, whether because of the condition of the ground or through lack of training, showed
visible signs of weakening, while the Varisty fifteen kept up their strenuous play until the final whistle found them pressing Stanford's twenty
five line with the score 8-0 for U.B.C.

^rT* HIS year's Miller Cup team has been the backbone of Rugby in the
^^ University. This may appear to be an extravagant statement to
the casual observer who finds Varsity near the bottom in the
standing of teams in the Miller series. But anyone who has followed
University rugby with sincere personal interest,—well, "Mac" for instance, ask him what he thinks of the Miller Cup team. He would
probably say (that is if there were no ladies present) "Without them we
wouldn't have been able to do a damn thing." And is he not right?
What could the McKechnie team have done without the Miller boys behind them? What encouragement in the form of an opportunity for
advanced experience, would our intermediates have had, but for the
Miller team? Has not the Miller team guaranteed the future of University rugby in that it has produced proficient and experienced players ?
These are questions which when answered will leave no doubt in your
mind as to the proper position of the Miller team in University athletics.
to the present seemingly foolish talk of rugby meets with Eastern American College and Olympia teams. If some critics still say "I told you
so" when the speak of the standing of this year's Miller team, remind
them that the Miller team has made possible this bright future outlook.
Remind them of the fact that the Miller team has been forced to sacrifice
its individuality as a team for the greater cause of University rugby as
a whole. Remind them of the fact that, against opposition that in one
team alone consisted of nine "Rep" men they carried on the battle with
that indominable "fight" that is fast becoming an inseparable part of
Varsity players; moreover, that they fought without whole-hearted
support from the student body. Remind them of these facts. If they
are at all just they will agree with you when you say that the Miller Cup
team has been, is, and always will be the back-bone of rugby in the
Since the rugby season opened last fall the Miller team has been
a basis of supply to the first team. By drawing players from it.
the McKechnie Cup team was able to beat "old man jinx" and win the
provincial championship. No less than nine players were at different
times, called upon to replace casualties of the first team ; three of whom
earned permanent positions. With the loss of these men the Miller
team filled their line-up from the intermediates. In this way more men
were trained and coached in senior rugby, men who were soon experienced enough to be on the selection list for the first team. Surely
without the Miller team . well ask "Mac."
Prof—Did you enjoy "The Passing of Arthur?"
Frosh—Yes, but I liked his punting much better!
The numerous magazine articles on "Hew to Keep Young" have
nothing to do with the support of a family.
When the Rugby Club first decided to field three teams, they were
the recipients of much adverse criticism. It Was claimed that such procedure endangered the high standing that previous Miller teams had
earned for Varsity in city rugby circles. That viewpoint is now held
by no one who has considered rugby in the light of its future possibilities ; for it is realized, in and out of University, that rugby is being
built up as a stable institution that will not only withstand the weakening effect of graduating and injured players but will give sound reason

«yiVf*| HEN 'Varsity entered the McKechnie Cup series, last year's
iltyi Intermediates were "stepped up" to the Senior Miller Cup
league. This resulted in an entirely new team being formed,
and entered for the Province Cup.
Second in the league! They didn't bring the pot home, but they
did a lot more than that.
The team's big job this year was to keep the two senior teams up
tk) scratch, and with some one injured nearly every game it kept them
busy. Those stepped up at one time or another being :Peter, Price,
Mathers, Jones, Penwill, Wilson, Cameron, Hunter, Edgett, McLane,
and Hedley. ,
This meant that, to fill their own ranks, new material was continually being "broken in," and every game was played with a different line
up, the back division being particular sufferers. This interfered with
team play, but each game showed a decided improvement. Under these
conditions the showing made for the year is excellent.
'Varsity won both games against Normals, and the first against
Rowing Club. The second encounter with the Oarsmen was played on a
slippery field, and ended 0—0, although the threes handled the ball well
in this game and made some pretty runs.
In the case of Centrals, experience and team play on the part of
the Cards., enabled them to nose out ahead. Our first game with Centrals played within ten days of the season opening, was lost 25—0, the
last was close and exciting, productive of fine rugby and ended with a
score of 3—0 against us. This as well as anything illustrates the improvement.
The fighting spirit of the forwards was good, and they showed a
keen desire at all times to get next to the ball.
The back division were best on defence, but weak in falling on the
ball; with a little more practice and coaching in this department of the
game the team will be "raring to go" next year.
Badminton, which was introduced as a University sport last year,
has not been so successful this year. A meeting was held at the
beginning of the term when plans for the year were discussed and the
following officers elected: Honorary President—Dr. D. R. Clark; President—Jack Underhill; Vive-President—Isabel Russell; Secretary—Jean
Henderson; Treasurer—R. E. Walker.
But owing to our inability to obtain the Drill Hall for regular practice, there has been very little chance to play. Judging by the success of
the Victoria trip, however, there is some excellent material among the
University players. The Ladies' Doubles, in which 'Varsity was to be
represented by Gwen Robson and Isabel Russell, were cancelled owing
to the illness of one of the Victoria players.    In the Men's Doubles,
Underhill and A. H. Finlay easily defeated their opponents. The above
also did well in the Provincial tournament.
Arrangements will be made to obtain the use of the King Edward
gymnasium for next session. With courts so near at hand, we hope,
next term, to get away to a flying start, and by enlisting a number of
our tennis stars, build up a strong club. In which case, the University
will be represented in inter-club matches and probably in the Provincial
Championship tournament.
Thus after passing a rather dormant year, we look forward to next
season full of confidence that the Badminton Club, as yet in its infancy,
will be firmly established, and badminton become a leading 'Varsity sport.
The Men's Swimming Club decided this year to operate on a much
more extensive scale than in any previous year so far. Quite a lengthy
program was drawn up, which embraced practically every phase of
watermanship. This including teaching of all swimming strokes, speed
swimming, divng, life-saving and water polo. The Y.M.C.A. Swimming
tank was secured one night a week, and up until Xmas, some very good
workouts were held there. There was some very fine material developed
among the thirty or forty men who attended the classes. The methods
of coaching were the same as those used by one of the present day
authority on swimming, Mr. Norman Cox, being brought indirectly to
the class through one of his old pupils. After Xmas, the "Y" tank was
not considered large enough to continue to meet the needs of the club, so
nearly a month was wasted before any arrangement could be made for
using Chalmers Pool.
Previous to this year, Varsity swimmers had never attempted as a
club to compete against any outside swimmers. However, as this
season advanced, it was soon seen that a fairly strong team would be
developed. Then it was decided to include swimming in the program of
the Victoria Sports. Luck was against them though, and they were
trimmed 36 points to 18. It was not for want o£*trying, however that
Varsity lost the swimming gala. It was simply that they were outclassed
by swimmers who had had far more experience. Frank Penwill upheld
Varsity's end by winning the diving in great style, and Celmer Ross by
winning the 100 yards, so that at least two major events of the gala
were annexed. Penwill, Tiffin and Ed. Chapman all swam great races in
the relay, but the competition was too strong.
It is the intention of the Swimming Club, as far as possible, to stick
together during the summer swimming season. They have affiliated with
the B. C. section of the Canadian Amateurs Swimming Association, and
intend to enter championship events in the summer. There is no reason
why Varsity should not produce just as good swimming as any other
club in B. C., so look forward, fellows, to seeing the good old blue and
gold in the limelight next summer.

SOCCER seems to have come into its own in the Varsity at last.
A wider interest in the sport, a greater manifestation of real college spirit on the part of the students, and the firm dogged determination of the team themselves to set the name of U. B. C. in the
forefront of popular athletics in Vancouver has culminated in greater
success than we have dreamed. Indeed the Varsity has every reason to
be justly proud of their Soccer Team. They have covered themselves
this year with glory. At the present moment they occupy an enviable
position at the head of the Second Division and have every possible
chance to finish out the season at the top of the League. They have not
lost a game in the last ten league matches which is in itself a record
never excelled in all the past history of Soccer in the City. They have
lost one game only in the last twelve played. In the Mainland Cup,
they were decidedly unfortunate in losing to the North Vancouver
Gallies in a replay with overtime. With ten men they held their First
Division opponents for over a hundred minutes in a strenuous two hours'
game, only to be robbed of victory in the last few minutes of play. In
the Iroquois Cup, they have reached the semi-final, and are more than
likely to place that cup in the University Foyer.
The prospects of Varsity entering the First Division next year are
good. Soccer football will then have the distinction in the University
which it merits; it is hoped it will become a major sport. A team may
also represent the U. B. C. in the Second or Third Division.
The officials of the team have taken a very serious interest in the
affairs of the club during the present season. One and all, they have
spared no time, and stinted no effort to round out a team worthy of the
University for every match, whether league or cup game. This has been
all the more difficult, owing to players being called upon for other
athletic activities on the same day. No too great praise can be awarded
the officials for their untiring efforts to place the Soccer eleven in the
prominent position it now occupies. To the Hon. President.Prof. Gordon
Davidson, the President, Jasper Wolverton, and the Manager, R. W.
Parker, the University of British Columbia owes a debt of deepest
gratitude. At every practice, at every game, they have devotedly followed the team in its march to well-merited success.
These players have all contributed of their best this past season:

71THI ^ TRUST that the following record of Grass Hockey this year
.U Lll may not unduly sadden or depress our many friends and admirers. We admit that if set forth in detail, the story would
chiefly consist of games delayed, postponed, abandoned, etc. But had
weather not so favored many of our opponents by prohibiting our playing against them, the tale might have been different, they might have
been completely annihilated and the U. B. C. Grass Hockey team, the
season's championettes.
It is well known that moderation is in vogue at the present time,
but from what the Grass Hockey girls have seen of College spirit, would
lead one to believe that prohibition has many supporters in the Varsity.
A little root beer, served at half-time might do much to revive the
flagging roots of the few rooters, and might even have the effect of
bringing out one—nay, perchance two, more supporters.

HMONG the new and reorganized athletic clubs, the University
Boxing Club has taken a prominent part, and the close of the
session marks the completion of a most successful year.
At the opening of the session it was found necessary that such
widely different organizations as the Swimming and Boxing Club which
had hitherto come under one executive, should branch out into separate
Accordingly a meeting was held of all students interested in boxing,
at which the following officers were elected: President, G. Lipsey,
Sc. 24; Vice-President, C. Campbell, Arts 23; Secretarv-Treasurer, E.
Ellis, Arts 23.
At first some difficulty was encountered in obtaining a suitable Gymnasium, but this obstacle was soon removed, owing to the kindness of the
Rev. M. H. Jackson, Rector of St. George's Church, who permitted the
club to use the splendidly equipped St. George's gymnasium.
The membership of the club is 25 strong and represents practically
every year in the University.
After due consideration the club decided to secure the services of
the well known professional Mr. Joe Nestman as instructor, and it is
■largely due to his wide experience in all matters pertaining to boxing
that the club has enjoyed such a successful year. Every member is
unanimous as to the value of the personal instruction he has received.
Boxing takes place once a week, Tuesday evenings, commencing
at 7.30 and continuing for about two hours.
This gives each member an opportunity to have two three round
bouts, and as much extra sparring as he pleases. Smart physical jerks
at the finish complete the evening's work.      ^   %
Those who were present at the Arts smoker will remember thr
quality of the three round fight put on by two of our reppresentative
This year the club introduced an entirely new departure in the form
of a Spring Tournament, held on March 3rd in the University Auditorium. Non-members were invited to take part in it, and in all about
24 contestants entered.
The Tournament itself consisted of one three round bout for each
weight, and block letters were awarded to the winners.
By the end of the next session the club hopes to be in the position
to issue challenges to neighboring Universities and local athletic organizations, but this can only be accomplished by the hearty support of the
Student Body. Tennis Club
HS the years progress, tennis becomes    more    and    more    popular

Edward High School were secured by the Club during the summer
months and were-enthusiastically patronized.
Immediately upon the opening of the fall term arrangements were
made for the annual tournament. Through the courtesy of the Laurel
Tennis Club we were again granted the use of their courts. This year the
gods favored us with the very best of weather and th estandard of
tennis was of the highest order. In the Men's singles, there were fifty
entries, in the Ladies' singles sixteen, while twenty-five teams entered in
the Men's doubles, eight in the Ladies' doubles and twelve in the mixed
doubles. The results were: Miss M. R. Munro, Arts '21, retained the
championship in the Ladies' singles by defeating Miss H. Kloepfer,.
Arts '23, in straight sets 6-1, 6-3. Miss M. R. Munro, Arts '21 and Miss

♦iTF YOU should be wandering byChalmer's Church about 4:30 on a
|| Monday afternoon and the latest melodies come floating out through
the windows to greet you, don't be alarmed, it's only the Woman's
Gym. Club indulging in a little exercise to music.
It's oodles of fun, running, jumping, to say nothing of all the other
weird stunts performed. The acrobats on a certain vaudeville circuit
have nothing on some of our girls—if you don't believe it, come and see
for yourself.
Much of the fun in the club is due to Miss Goddard's happy ability
to combine the work with a little play. After the strenuous exercises
when our muscles are aching, comes the relaxation in the numerous
dances in which we are "to be graceful." Now you know the secret
why some of our Co-eds are so graceful, it's not natural, they learned it!
Ask the girls what dance they like the best and see if they don't
say "that Russian Court Dance." It has made a decided hit this year
and by far the most popular dance we have ever had yet, even out-rivaling a vampy Oriental dance we learned last year in which we all imagined ourselves veritable Cleopatras.
In watching the girls you might fail to recognize the demure
freshies, sophisticated sophs., sedate juniors and poor over-worked
seniors; but we're all there, camouflaging behind a big smile for one hour
a week.
"One hour a week" sums up our pet grievance, for we all feel that
one hour is sadly inadequate for proper gym work. The members are
looking forward to the time when gym will be every day and some
members (they're freshies, of course), even have visions of a big well-
equipped gym at Point Grey. The seniors look on these dear people with
a certain air of indulgence for they remember the time when they too
dreamed dreams—but one learns a lot in four years.
In the meantime thirty or forty girls are turning out faithfully every
Monday doing our best to ward off the days when we will be "stiff and

t. ft* OMETHING new and entirely different, something we have never
JJJbeen before," distinguishes the Women's Swimming Club this
year. Instead of being a mere side issue of girls' athletics and
sharing Chalmers' tank on Mondays with every odd women's club in
the city as heretofore, the U. B. C. Club asserted itself and procured
the use of the tank one afternoon a week exclusively for its members.
Of course such a change required considerable negotiation with the
Committee in charge of Chalmer's tank, but through the enterprise of
our President and mediation of our Coach, satisfactory arrangements
were made.
We feel sure that the beginnings of a real Varsity Club have been
made. For did we not, after two short months of practice, assemble a
team to represent us in Victoria, against such a famous champion as
Miss Audrey Griffin? No cup or first place was captured at the Victoria tournament but we have reason to be proud of our first team,
which showed up splendidly, despite the lack of preparation. The team
was composed of Misses Claire Blainey '25, Mary Chapman '23, Constance Peter '23 and Edna Ballard '22.
Another even of importance in the history of the Women's Swimming Club is the meet with the U. A. S. C, which took place in March.
Their challenge means at least that they recognize our existence as a
Club to be reckoned with (which is something, is it not, considering
that such a challenge was never given before?)
Less spectacular than the efforts of the team but perhaps of equal
importance are the attempts of the rest of us to master the six-heat-
double-rhythm crawl, (perhaps we should say "imitate" rather than
"master" out of deference to those that really kfiow something about
it.) At any rate we're doing our "durnedest" to" get across the tank
that way on one breath if we can't do the length of it on two or three.
And some of these days we'll surely , but let us wait and see.
In conclusion we want most emphatically to express our appreciation
of our coach, Celmer Ross, and our sincere thanks for his assistance.
If it hadn't been for him we should have had no team to compete in
Victoria, we should have had no association with the V. A. S. C., and
most of us would be struggling along any way,—in fact without Celmer
we shouldn't have been very much of a club at all.
The executive for the year has been: Mrs. Boving, Hon. Pres.;
Evelyn A. Monkman, Pres.; Mary Chapman, Vice-Pres.; and G. E.
MacKinnon, Sec-Treasurer.

The Second Annual Track Meet was held at Brockton Point on
Wednesday, October 26, 1921, on a very wet afternoon and on a very
heavy track and grounds. The "Faculty Challenge Cup," for the class
winning the greatest number of points, was again won by Arts '24 with
a grand total of 56 points. Mr. A. Buchanan, Arts '24 won the individual
championship with a total of 19 points.

Senior A
J& OR the first time in the annals of basketball at Varsity, all three
Jm Divisions of the City & District League were competed in by our
artists of the hoop game. In each division our teams were well
in the running for the championship, till the last one or two games. The
Senior B have made the best showing of the three e,'tries, and, up to the
time of going to press, have still a chance of gaining the championship.
The Senior A team ended in fourth place with one game still unplayed.
Great credit for the showing made, must be given to "Buck" Buchanan, who although unable to turn out himself, rounded the material at
his disposal into three good teams, and gave much of his time to
training and organizing the new players. Les Bickell, captain of the
Senior A team, also deserves much credit for the time given to the game.
Nearly all the small details of arranging games, etc., were left in his
hands, while Kenny Carlisle as President of the Club acted as general
For the first attempt at Senior A basketball, Varsity acted as old
hands at the game. At the beginning of the season three of the regular
men were from the intermediate team of last year, winners of the city
championship, and two of them made permanent positions on the team,
Gordie Lewis at guard and Les. Bickell as forward. Fred Elliott was
unable to continue in the game, after an injury to one of his feet.
Fred's position at guard was filled by Kenny Carlisle, who is a veteran
in the game, having been on Varsity's first team for the last three
years. Tommy Wilkinson of Agriculture '25 found a place on the team
at once, and started off at centre, playing a stellar game all season. He
was later moved up to forward, and his position at centre was filled by
George Gross, who was unable to turn out^t the first of the season
owing to rugby. Lacey Fisher was a member of last year's team, and
stepped right in this year with lots of fight. Lacey was the deciding
factor when the Varsity defeated the Ex-Normal A team, 32-28. Varsity
played the best game of the season against the Ex-Normals, and are the
only team to beat them this year. The Normals had the score 28-27 in
the last two minutes, and after a foul for Varsity, the score stood at
28-28. It was then that Lacey came through with two of his slicker
shots, and the score remained unchanged till the whistle blew.
Towards the end of the season, the team was crippled with injuries
and influenza, and Varsity was unable to field a team against the
Y. M. C. A., in the final game of the season. Next year, with this year's
team as background, Varsity will no doubt reach the pinnacle of city
Page Ninety-eight MEN'S BASKETBALL (Senior B.)
•flfN THE Senior B division, the first few games came before the
H boys were quite ready. From then on, however, the Senior B
team has a record which is indeed an enviable one for they have
won eleven league games in a row. This succession of victories constitutes a record which has hardly been equalled by any team in the
city or province.
During the annual Victoria trip, the Senior B boys lost in a fast
and furious game to the Victoria College. The team was handicapped
by the absence of two of their regulars. In the return game however,
Varsity won, in one of the snappiest exhibitions of Basketball featured
this season, by the score of 34-32.
One of the most exciting league games of the year was that against
Y.M.C.A. Ponies on the Y.M.C.A. floor. The teams were very evenly
matched, but Varsity was eager to stop the winning streak of the Ponies
The game ended with the score 29-28 in favor of Varsity, and it was
declared by the six Varsity rooters, who turned out, to be one of the
best games of the year.
As to the personnel of the team: Frank Penwill, at centre, is the
hub of the team, and because of his exceedingly good jump he is invariably able to put tho ball into a Varsity play. Ed. Bassett and
Tommy Turnbull are two forwards who are hard to beat. These boys
have played consistently and it seems as if every game has been an "on"
night. Swanzey Peck and Bob Stephens are a dandy pair of guards, and
feed their forwards in a capable manner.
After getting together two senior teams, the Basketball Club chose
six more players and called it the Intermediate team. There were no
two players on the team that had ever played together before, and after
one practice they held the Normal School team down to a two point
lead in the first game. This was folowed by two victories and then a
series of defeats. After this string of bad luck, they served out a strong
come-back when they defeated St. Mark's, the leaders of the league. Although they are not first they are certainly not last. The team as a
whole have missed few practices and have worked hard throughout the
The guards were the mainstay of the team and some very promising material was developed. Jim Gill, "the Cranbrook flash," seemed
to have the knack of always being in the right place. Joe McCreary is
a good guard and takes keen delight in dropping them in from centre.
Art Saunders, of Victoria College fame, started the season as a forward
but developed into an even better guard. "Treat-em-rough" Henderson,
at centre, shone especially in the jumps. The forwards, Stan Arkley
and Eddie Cooper played a good combination game and when they got
their "shooting eye" were hard to stop. Stan Arkley ably filled the
role of captain.   Jack McPherson has ably filled the role of substitute.

"Mens sana in corpore sano"
OMEN'S Athletics!   No one can deny the important part they
play—and ought  to  play—in  the average college girls'  life.
And what with basketball, grass hockey, ice hockey, swimming, badminton, gym., and with tennis in the summer, U.B.C. girls have a chance
to develop their talents in any direction they choose, and on the whole
we have had a most successful season.
Gym. enthusiasts have practised regularly every Monday, and the
swimmers swam valiantly on Tuesdays, besides representing us for the
first time on the annual Victoria trip. We also expect that they will
register some wins for Varsity in the coming swimming Meet. The Grass
Hockey team has played with as much frequency as Vancouver's faithful friend, Mr. Pluvius, would permit. Incidently the snow also seemed
li have an unjustiable grudge against the hockey girls, but in spite of
all obstacles they played a good many successful games. Ice hocke\
enthusiasts came up against an insurmountable barrier when those
who control the destinies of the Arena refused to allow any girls'
teams to practise there. However we intend to try again next' year.
And last but not least, basketball. This year's trip to the Okanagan
created a precedent which we hope wil be followed for many years to
come. The men have often represented their university outside the
immediate surroundings of Vancouver, but this is the first year the
women have done so, excepting of course on the annual Victoria expedition. According to all reports from the interior, our team made a
decided hit in the sunny valley, besides winning all their games by a
big margin. If the team continues to do as well as it has thus far. and
there seems no reason why it should not. it is almost certain to win
the Farell Cup which will then be our permanent possession as it has
already been won for two successive years. In passing we might just
mention that it is only those who turn out regularly to practices who
do themselves or the team any real good.
Miss "Eve" Eveleigh has been our capable and enegetic president,
assisted by an executive consisting of Evelyn Monkman, Connie Fitch.

♦flTnjv AVING unfortunately lost practically all of last seasons' stars,
J  we were forced this year, to content ourselves with an Intermediate and a Junior team.   Although neither team was successful in coming out on top, they certainly were no disgrace to the college
and the boys deserve much praise for their clean and sportsmanlike
In the intermediate division we got away to a poor start, losing
the first three games. After this however, we seemed to hit our stride.
and were easy winners of the next three, only to fall down before our
old rivals, the Nationals, in the play-off series. When we started our
winning streak it certainly looked as though we were headed for the
championship, but as usual, it was the unexpected that happened and
we were beaten by a team that, according to all theories, should have
been "meat" for us.
On Feb. 16 Varsity went to Seattle to play the first game of the
annual inter-collegiate series with the University of Washington. A
terrific battle ensued but the old jinx was rght on the job,.for although
it was admitted even by our opponents that we had the better of the
play, we were defeated, after ten minutes of overtime, three goals to
two. The return game at Vancouver was much slower and not nearly
so spectacular. This game ended in a two all draw which neither team
was able to break, although ten minutes of overtime was again played.
The visitors were accordingly declared this season's victors, being one
goal up on the series.
In the Junior League we were also unsuccessful, being nosed out
by the Towers. The champs, however were forced to go all the way
to win from us and only did so by virtue of one flukey goal; scored after
ten minutes overtime had been played. Our Juniors took some time
to get going and it will take a good outfit to beat them next year.
Although the hockey club may not have achieved much in the way
of filling our show case with cups, still it has helped to show the rest
of the world that the old Varsity Spirit still has a kick and in addition
a number of boys have been trained for next year's teams.

fN GLANCING over the pages of the Department's "War Diary" for
the session 1921-22 one is struck by the manner in which events
seem naturally to divide themselves into two general classes; those
which transpired when we occupied "Room F" as our headquarters and
those which have taken place since our removal to our present sumptuous
quarters alongside the Students' Council. In and about Room "F" as
our Literary members often put it reigned pandemonium—utter and
complete. The Scientific branch of the Department used to describe it
in various ways. 'Noise to the nth degree," however seems the oniy
one suitable for publication. However, thanks to the energy and persuasive powers of our President and to the assistance of the Bursar,
we found ourselves toward the end of last term occupying a comfortable office in the Commercial Building. There, complete with official files
and typewriter we hold sway over our multitudinous constituent societies.
Each Monday noon there assembles a council which if less pretentious than that epic gathering at Versailles handles business of equal
portent with greater despatch.
At the head of the council table there sits Mr. A. E. Richards, our
President, who by constant exercise of that firmness and tact for which
he is justly famous, causes business to go through and motions to
crystallize out of sometimes irrelevant discussion with nothing short of
uncanny skill.
On the right of the President are the three whose combined presence elevates our debate and lends a touch of distinction and color to
our Assembly. Miss A. Anderson, Vice-President of the Department,
Miss N. Willis, President of the Players' Club, and the Chief-Executive
of the Womens' Literary Society, Miss K. M. Portsmouth, supply that
indefineable air of grace which -would be lacking in a gathering of mere
Next in order as one's eye roves round the Council Table sit the
President of the Musical Society. Mr. H. C. Etter and the President of
the Chemistry Society. Mr. J. R. Davidson. These two despite the
cons of space between their callings live amicably together. If the
Musical Society can have the Church or the Auditorium, or both, one or
two days a week all would apepar to be well. In passing it may well
be said that for enterprise it would be hard to excell that collection of
artists known as the Musical Society. In the case of the President of
the Chemistry  Society  it  is open  to  doubt whether an  Etude  in"E"
Page One Hundred and  Four
Minor makes as strong an appeal to him as a treatise on the electron as
the ultimate in matter, but if it does not he conceals the fact admirably.
And now we have come to the foot of the long Council Table—a
table across which the destinies of constituent societies are woven.
The Agricultural Discussion Club as represented by their genial
President, Mr. J. W. Riley and the Social Science Club with Mr. N.
Robertson as their representative, hold sway in this advantageous position. (It is near the door.) One of the most remarkable features of the
conference is that motions are sometimes made by others despite severe
competition experienced from this quarter. We believe that even the
Versailles Conference had its Robertson.
The Debate's Manager—Mr. G. S. Clark and the President of the
Sigma Delta Kappa Society usually occupy adjacent seats: the volume
of business emanating from this quarter would appear to vary as the
cube of the proximity of an Inter-Collegiate Debate.
The Meins' Literary Society, represented by their versatile and energetic President,Mr. R. Hodson, forms no small part of our Council.
As Captain of the Varsity Rugger Team, President of the Mens' Literary Society and Premier of the Mock .Parliament, he shines equally well
and says little.
The last link round the festive board is formed by that most unfortunate of persons, the Secretary-Treasurer of the Department, who sometimes endeavours to record in more or less legible form, the more coherent motions put forward by the various members of the Executive.
This brief resume would scarcely be complete without mention of
our Honorary President, Dr. T. H. Boggs. Unfortunately for us pressure of work has rendered it impossible for him to have seen much of us
as a Department but, sure of his co-operative help, we continue the even
tenor of our ways.
Of late Inter-Collegiate Debaters have been using our office as a
headquarters for the "working up" of Debates. In consequence when
we, in the editorial sense, endeavored to force an entry the other day,
we did so only under a barrage of volumes and periodicals to find our
sacred table piled with weighty treatises such as, "Iceland's Stand on the
Irish Question," and others, more abstruse, of which we wotted not.
Still, should these orgies of learning wrest but one point from the
opposing team in the coming debate we are content to dig our faithful
typewriter out of the debris on Mondays and carry on. Men's Literary Society

««jrO INTRODUCE the form of a Student Parliament into the regu-
ilI, lar meetings of the society and to guide this youngest descendant
^■^ of the "Mother of Parliaments" safely along the devious ways-
which every venturer into new fields must traverse, was the chief task
and achievement of the Men's Literary Society in the session which has
just closed. The experienced advice and encouragement of the honorary
president, Dr. Macdonald, was of the greatest assistance in the inception
and carrying through of the project.
As originally drawn up the proposed constitution provided for
government and opposition parties, the former headed by a cabinet composed of the executive of the society and representatives from the different classes. The onerous duty of Premier fell upon the shoulders of the
president, Mr. R. Hodson, Sc. '23; Mr. Cassidy, Arts '23 led the opposition, while Mr. Vogee's level-headed impartiality upheld the best traditions of the Speaker's office.
It was inevitable that certain departures should be made from the
rules first drawn up, The strict party system so dear to the politician
,and so bewildering to the mind of the layman was largely modified and a
marked improvement resulted. The subjects debated were chiefly those
affecting student affairs. From time to time however other matters were
An open meeting was held at the beginning of the Fall term when
the Hon. W. J. Bowser, K. C. gave an interesting lecture on "Constitutional Government" before a large audience. The Men's oratorical contest and Ladies' night took place on Feb. 16. The, competition reached
and maintained a very high level. Mr. Allan Hurst, Arts '22, wa-j adjudged the winner of the gold medal. His address, entitled "Here or
nowhere is your America," was a plea for the fullest measure of fearless
self-expression on the part of students and others. Mr. C.A.F. Clarke,
Arts '22 was awarded the silver medal for his dissertation on "Ethics
in Canadian Public Life," which Mr. Yonemura was very convincing, in
defence of Japan's policy in the Far East.
The term's work, necessarily of a pioneering character, should at
least form a useful foundation for future development in the same
Inter-class Debates.
The annual inter-class debates for the Faculty shield were held
under the direction of a committee, at special meetings of the society,
a change from previous years. Arts '23, Arts '24 and Agriculture were
successful in the eliminations, while Arts '24 carried off final honors.
^--■r HROUGHOUT this, the seventh year of our career as an organi-
ll I zation, we have borne in mind and endeavored to attain the aim
\* of our Society as stated in our Constitution—"To cultivate in its
members an appreciation of the best in literature, and to train them in
the art of public speaking." With the intention of laying special emphasis upon public speakng, we included in our programme interclass
debates, open debates, an oratorical contest, and the first U.B.C.
Women's Intercollegiate Debate. By organising a class in Public Speaking, our Honorary President, Mrs. A. F. B. Clark, has given us invaluable assistance in accomplishing our work.
The Executive responsible for the 1921-22 activities of the Society
is composed of Miss K. M. Portsmouth, President; Miss Wilma Mor-
den, Vice-President; Miss Dorothy Walsh, Secretary; Miss Georgina
MacKinnon, Treasurer; Miss Ruth Verchere, representative from Arts
'22; Miss Sallee Murphy from Arts '23; Miss Lucy Ingram from Arts
'24; and Miss Marguerite Carrico from Arts '25. Miss Morden was
elected in mid-session to fill the place vacated by Miss Annie Anderson
who was forced to resign owing to pressure of work.
In addition to its usual work, the Lit., this year, has pioneered
in Williamette University, Salem, Oregon, on the subject: "Resolved
that the Western nations and Japan are justified in refusing to relinquish the territorial rights in Chna which they hold by treaty." The
women showed a lively interest in this new departure, nine entering the
try-outs. From these nine, Miss Sallee Murphy, and Miss Dorothy
Walsh were chosen to be U.B.C.s first Women Intercollegiate Debaters;
and Mrs. Breeze, Miss Helen McGill, and Miss Grace Smith '23 were
selected as supporters.
We owe to Dr. Sedgewick and to the Faculty Women the auspices
beginning of the year. At the first meeting of tl»e session, the former
gave us both warning and encouragement in an address on "Public
Speaking; "and the latter entertained us delightfully at tea.
The successive meetings took sufficiently varied forms to suit
every taste. Arts '24 and Arts '25 debated the subject. "Resolved that
the age limit of entrance to this University be raised from sixteen to
eighteen." Miss G. E. MacKinnon gave a most entertaining paper on
G. B. Shaw. We were fortunate in securing Mr. Bliss Carman, one of
Canada's representative poets, who addressed the Student Body under
the auspices of the Women's Lit. Five speakers took part in the third
annual Oratorical Contest, Miss Georgina MacKinnon and Miss Greta
Mather winning the prizes. Finally, in an open debate, a venture for
our Lit., the women discussed the vital question: "Resolved that a
system of separate education is preferable to one of co-education."

In the third year since its inception it should be unnecessary to write
of all the aims and objects of the Historical Society. Suffice it to say
that it has attempted to deal with the world-wide problems of the present
day, particularly those which are omitted in the classroom. With the
capable advice and kindly assistance of the honorary president Dr. Mack
Eastman, the Society has had a most successful year during the season
of 1921-22.
At the end of last session, the following executive was elected:
•Honorary President—Dr. Mack Eastman; President W. R. McAfee;
Vice-President, Miss Norah Willis; Secretary—H. M. Cassidy. During
the term Mr. Cassidy was obliged to resign owing to the pressure of
other work and Mr. J. Herd was elected to fill the vacancy. The Society
owes much to the faithful work of the members of this executive. Also
last May, a reception was held at the University^ at which new members
were introduced and the subjects for future meetings distributed.
This year six meetings have been held at which the following topics
have been di   -issed: "The United States", Miss J. T. Carrie and Mr.
H. G. Allen; "Spanish America," Miss A. L. Campbell and Miss E.
Gilbert; "Problems of the Pacific," Miss D. Lee and Miss P. Hamilton-
Smith, M.A.; "Ireland", Miss M. L. Reid and Mr. W. R. McAfee; "India"
Miss S. Murphy and Mr. A. H. Imlah; "International Labor Movements,"
Mr. N. A. Robertson and Mr. H. M. Cassidy^". Although the "discussion
is, at times, rather lukewarm, Mess:/;. Robertson and Cassidy can always
be relied upon to start an argument and arouse the more timid members
of the Society. However, at certain meetings the discussion has waxed
fast and furious, especially at that in which Mr. McAfee's Imperialistic
attitude aroused the ire of certain of his fellow-members.
The Society has always endeavored to promote interest in things
historical in the U.B.C. and through the kindness of Mr. R. L. Reid,
K.C. a prize of $25 has been offered for the best essay tin a given topic,
while Mr. Keenlayside under the auspices of the Society has donated
a silver and a gold-medal to be awarded to Third and Fourth year students respectively, who have shown special interest ~nd ability in the
Department of History.

ind Six ^*>*HE progress of the Chemistry Society has this year been marked
Ll^   by an increased number of lectures delivered by student members.
These lectures have been of a calibre which has more than
maintained the standing of the society in the realm of student activities.
The interest shown by the staff of the Chemistry Department has
given an added impetus and we are indebted to them and to others for
time and labor spent in helping us.
The Chemistry Society is especially privileged in having Dr. Archibald as Honorary President and he began the years' programme with an
instructive lecture on the "Liquefaction of Gases" in which he traced
the historical development and outlined the contributions of various men.
Mr. Harold Doyle, Sc. '22 gave a lecture on "Zinc Leaching" as
carried on at Trail, B. C.
"Molecules and Molecular Structure" was the subject of the next
talk given by Dr. Seyer who had made an extensive study of these
elusive mites.
To begin the New Year, Dr. R. H. Clark gave a unique and interesting lecture on "Odors" in which he pointed out certain chemical groups
or "Osmophores" which may be associated with definite odors. The
evening's programme was brought to a close with a smelling competition that caused great amusement to all.
At the next meeting, Mr. S. R. McDougall, Sc. '22 described "Oil
Refining" as carried on by the Imperial Oil Co. at loco and Mr. A. J.
Anderson, Sc. '23 outlined the process in use in the "Coke* Plant af
Anyox," operated by the Grandby Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Later in the session Mr. C. Sivertz, Sc. '23 explained the science and
art of "Photo-engraving and Electrotyping," and Mr. N. Bell, of the
various steps in purifying bauxite and the recovery of aluminum by the
Hall Electrolytic process. He discussed also the production of commercial aluminum ware.
It is expected that several additional lectures by students will be
given before the end of the session when it is proposed to award prizes
based upon the merits of the various papers.

With all due apologies for the above perpetration, we wish to introduce ourselves in the pages of the Annual for the first time. Although
a small group as yet, we lay claim to being—well—THE Club, to be
modest about it, as anyone who has the forbearance enough to forgo
the delights of the Cafeteria some noon hour, and come and hear us, can
testify. We do not mind admitting frankly that we are in the process
of learning how to speak. In this we are ably assisted by the criticism
of Mr, Lighthall, which is based on the axiom that to spare the rod will
spoil the child.
Last spring we were able to help the fellows in getting jobs for the
summer, by holding a series of talks on the opportunities and conditions
in the various branches of engineering- industry throughout the Province,
and also by publishing the names and addresses of companies affording
employment.   We intend to follow the same lines this spring.

^s? The Players' Club
HT THE commencement of the seventh season of the Player's Club,
the members were confronted with the ta^k of electing a new
President, as Mr. Bruce Fraser had found himself unable to continue with the duties of that position. Miss Norah Willis was elected to
succeed Mr. Fraser, whose resignation was accepted with regret. The
executive for the ensuing year is as follows: Honarary President, Mr.
F. G. C. Wood; President, Miss Norah Willis; Vice-president, Mr. Lacey
Fisher; Secretary, Miss K. Leveson, while Mr. Bob Hunter is again the
Treasurer. The Committee is composed of Miss Eloise Angell, Mr.
Garrett Livingstone and Mr. Jack Clyne.
The Club is most fortunate in that it retains the services of Professor Wood, Dr. Clark and Mr. Larsen on its Advisory Board. Mr.
Wood has been with the Player's Club since it was formed and its success
has been largely due to his untiring energy. Dr. Clark and Mr. Larsen
have also been generous in freely contributing much time and effort as
advisors and coaches.
Some one hundred and twelve students were candidates for membership in the Player's Club this year. Of these, twenty-eight were successful. Two weeks after the try-outs, the annual reception took place, a
function at which the older members of the club were hosts to the
recently adopted recruits. Professor Wood welcomed the new-comers,
and thereupon festivities commenced. A most enjoyable evening was
spent in dancing, during which refreshments were served. Several
former members of the Player's Club were present, among whom were
Miss Dorothy Adams and Mr. Arthur Lord—two of last year's star
The presentation of the four Christmas playlets took place this
year on Nov. 24th, 25th and 26th, and according to our Hon. Pres. compared favorably with those of preceding years. The first play of the
evening was that charming phantasy "The Maker of Dreams", by
Oliphant Down. It is a delicate little play and required a great deal of
its actors. Miss Jessie Adams made a most charming Pierette, while
Kenneth Caple handled the difficult role of Pierrot very well. The
Manufacturer was most ably interrrated by Mr. J. C. Dickson. Altogether, the play was a success and was well received by the audiences.
The scond play was "The Twelve Pound Look" by Sir James
Barrie. This play is an example of excellent play-making and ably
presented Barrie's ability in presentng the usual in a most natural, yet
striking way. The role of the blustering, self-satisfied Sir Harry Sims
was portrayed by Mr. Louis Eckert in a most convincing manner; while
in Mrs. Ida Breese, we saw his divorced wife—a women to whom life
meant more than an existence of every day conventionalities. The part of
Lady Sims, the presnt wife of Sir Harry, was sustained both in appearance and manner by Miss Gertrude Bell, and in Mr. H. V. Warren we
had a most natural butler. This play required poise and finish, and it
is greatly to the credit of its characters that the play went over as it
The; next play "He," by Eugene O'Neil, was of a most serious
nature. A whaling-ship was marooned in the Artie ice—for two years
she had been thus. On board, a woman—the Captain's wife—was losing'
her mind, due to the unbearable circumstances by which she was surrounded. At last the ice broke up and she pleaded with her husband to
turn back and he was on the verge of doing so—when whales are reported just ahead—to the Northward, and to the Northward steamed
the ship. The last thread of reason having now fled, complete insanity
overtakes the unfortunate wife, too late the captain realized the price
of his broken word. The acting of Miss Georgina McKinnon, as Mrs.
Keeney, was undoubtedly the outstanding feature of the play, being
wonderfully sustained and finished through-out. Mr. C. W. Zink portrayed vividly the hard skipper—her husband—Captain Keeney. Other
members of the cast, Messrs. Celmer Ross, George Clark, C. Y. Robson,
A. D. Hunter and Jack Harkness formed a most natural and life-like
crew. The way in which the play noticeably moved and held the
audience is its best praise.
Last of all was prsented "The Potboiler," a satire by Alice Gersten-
berg. The difficult role of the pompous and self-satisfied playwright,
Mr. Thomas Pinikles Sud, was interpreted excellently by Mr. Wells
Coates. Miss Betty Somerset as the villianess and Miss Beth McLennan
as the heroine, left little to be desired. Mr. Donald Hart played to perfection the part of the conscientious young amateur wiyle the other
parts were upheld by Messrs. Eric Jackson, Hugh Russell, Lome Morgan
and Jack Harkness. This play was intended to dispell the suspense and
gloom caused by the tragic "lie," and judging from the frequent roars
of laughter from the audience, its purpose was achieved.
The spring play this year was "Mr. Pirn Passes By," by Mr. A. A.
Milne—former editor of "Punch." This production has been played
in New York and London during the past two years. It is the first
time in the history of the "Player's Club," that it has had the privilege
of staging the premiere of a present day play in western America.
The people of the day were as follows: George Marden, the slow-
thinking opinionated squire who had very decided ideas on the futuristic
movement of art, and was played by Mr. Jack Clyne. Marden especially
disliked, among other things, triangular clouds, square sheep as well as
orange and black curtains. Olivia was the simply devastating wife of
the serious minded George, who thoroughly understood her less brilliant
Pnge One Hundred and Nine The Players' Club—continued
husband, and who in her quiet yet effective way, managed to bring him
to her own way of thinking. The role of Olivia was taken by Miss
Betty Somerset.
Dinah was an opinionated, breezy young lady who knew exactly
what she wanted and went after it with a directness that took one's
breath, but yet amused us greatly. Miss Georgina McKinnon played
the role of this charming young person. Brian Strange, who was in
love with Miss Dinah was an artist who possessed considerable good
humor and buoyancy of spirits. A very effective part of the play was
apparant when Brian, seeing himself as Sir Brian Strange, R.A., painter
of successful Academy pictures, sketched his endorsation of a popular
tonic called Sanogene. Mr. Wells Coates interpreted Brian. Mr. Pirn
was a quiet, unassuming, little man who had lived many years in this
trying world, and yet showed no signs of its turmoil with the exception
of his grey locks. Innocent and lovable, this aged person nearly
wrecked the lives of George and Olivia through his absent-mindedness—
coupled with his disjointed sentences. Mr. Neil Mac Callum interpreted
Mr. Pirn,   u  "
: Lady Marden was a vigorous young person of sixty who was conventional and proper to the highest degree. Miss Kirsteen Leveson
played the part of Lady Marden. The role of the maid in the play was
enacted by three young ladies in turn—Miss Isobel Miller, Miss Dorothy
Holmes and Miss Muriel Evans.
There was a departure from the usual this year in that the opening
performance took place in New Westminster, on the evening of March
10th. The following week on March 15th, "Mr. Pirn Passs By," was
played in Nanaimo. The Vancouver dates were March 23rd, 24th and
25th. Performances will also take place in Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna
and Penticton. It is not altogether unlikely that the members of the
Player's Club may even play in the towns of the Kootenay district, but
as yet no definite arrangements have been made.
The Player's Club this ye,ar possess a larger membership than ever
before—the number of members at present being sixty, where fifty was
formerly a full complement. Playing to audiences in many cities of the
Province, the fact that there really is a University of British Columbia
is thus brought home more forcibly to the residents of the upper country
districts. We have had a most successful year and are looking forward
to another, equally successful, next term.

The Musical Society
THE Spring Concert last year was not a howling success, but after
ruining the "Ruins of Athens" and losing our president "Jimmie," crepe
only was needed .
However we came to life in a remarkable manner this year. There
has been an increase of approximately 25% in both voices and orchestra,
while the quality has increased proportionately.
We have now found our stride and are going strong. Mr. Russell is
our permanent Honorary President while a "temporary" honorary president is to be elected yearly.
Fortune was kind- to us and sent us Harold Etter, and Miss Ida
Morris. "Harold" our energetic and enthusiastic president, has had
full scope for his wide knowledge of music, and his excellent executive
ability, and the credit for our success is, in a large measure, due to his
efforts. Miss Morris, as our conductor, combined excellent musicianship
with fine tact and patience, and has worked hard and, if we do say so,
Under this exceptionally fine leadership success was assured. We
have initiated the Student Recital idea, and the two held this year were
very successful and entertaining, giving the students the opportunity
of hearing our own talent, and also some of our Alumni. The Christmas
Concert was very successful, so much so, that the main number "For
Empire and For King" was repeated at the Spring Concert.
A concert by Mrs. Gertrude Greene and Mr. Gideon Hicks in addition to our usual spring program provide an extra treat for the students.
In securing these two noted artists our executive has set a valuable precedent in student affairs as well as in a musicaPCvay, that will undoubtedly be followed in succeeding years.        ,
The Spring concert was held as usual in the Vancouver Hotel ballroom on March 15, the assisting artists were Mr. Tripp, Mrs. Coleman,

best yet.
A hike held along the North Shore to Cypress Park, and a very
very enjoyable skating party in the dark at Coal Harbor, completes the
list of activities of th,e best and busiest year of the Musical Society.
Just a word of appreciation for our whole executive but "Staff"
Cox in particular; he is the hardest worked man in the Society and his
doings range all the way up to "B" flat. THE SIGMA DELTA KAPPA
HLTHOUGH the Sigma Delta Kappa is still in its infancy it is
steadily growing in size and popularity. Designed originally to
promote debating and literary discussion, the Society attracts students who have either a liking for, or a desire to become, more proficient
in the art of public speaking. It supplements the activities of the Men's
and Women's Literary Societies, without interfering with them. The
fact that it includes both men and women seems to be one of the factors
of its success.
This year there are about fifty members enrolled. The programmes
usually take the form of debates on current topics of interest, while
now and then at a Round Table Conference measures are carried with
an ease that must make the British Parliament green with envy. The
versatility of the members enables them to impersonate with equal success, the various representatives at the World's Peace Conference and
to deliver humorous speeches from the well-known soap-box. The social
evenings are popular around the college as shown by the crowd that
gathers to enjoy dancing, apples and ginger-snaps.
The Sigma Delta Kappa has been this year under the able leadership of Mr. William Black, Arts '22. Other members of the executive
are Miss Dorothy Fingland, Arts '22; Mr. George Martin, Arts '25;
Miss Helen McGill, Arts '25; and Mr. J. Bloomfield, Partial.
Agriculture Discussion Club
The "Agriculture Discussion Club" became known as an organized
society within the University of British Columbia in the year 1918.
Meetings were held at the homes of the few members each alternate
week throughout the year, but since that year, the club has grown so
rapidly that now, with over 60 live and enthusiastic members they are
enabled to conduct successful meetings in the University auditorium
every alternate week. The evenings entertainments are convened by
an able executive, chosen by the members of the club for this purpose.
There are delivered at the meetings, educational and interesting
speeches by the Professors of the Faculty, and also by prominent men
who may be able to attend. They have formed a sessional programme
containing a series of Mock Parliaments and Trial's, inter-class debates,
and speeches delivered by chosen members of the Club.
In the past, the Agriculture Discussion Club, though subordinate in
size, was second to none in its place among the many societies of the
University. At present, it is striving hard to maintain its high reputation of the past, and its future is a very bright and promising one. Two
years ago, the Men's Literary Society, donated a shield to encourage
Inter-Faculty debating within the university and the members of the
A. D. C, have been successful in securing the shield for two consecutive years.

Page One Hundred and Twelve The Alumni Association
^■^OUR or five years of college activities and then what? Why did
|| you come to the University and what did you get out of it ? What-
*^ ever you learned, whether it was from the teachings of your professors or from the activities of your Alma Mater, it can be of no use
either to yourself or to others unless you can and do apply it.
Why is the University not at Point Grey? The Provincial Government will tell you it is because they haven't the necessary money. Yet
they have thousands of dollars to spend on a "Ptronage" Court at Prince
Rupert, the "Grafting" Sumas Dyke proposition, the "School Boy's
Railroad" known as the P. G. E., and many other propositions which
should never have been given priority to the University. Why then
has the University been left on a side track ? Why ? Because as hard-
headed politicians rather than far-seeing statesmen, they want to see
the returns for such outlay.
How are these returns to lie made. Truly our professors have already done much for the Province along the lines of scientific research.
But what of the students, the graduates? It is true that individually
we are hot in a position to do very much. However, if we get together
as the Alumni which comprises all graduates of the University, with
that same spirit that was ever present in our Alma Mater, we can then
strive with greater success towards our goal, "To further the interests
of the University and the Alumni."
If the Alumni are to accomplish this, they must not only know
their Alma Mater and University as it was, but as it is and can be.
To do this they must keep in close touch with all movements at the
University. Don't be a hermit in your Alma Mater or your Alumni, but
get out and co-operate with your fellow workers. The Alumni are out
to make their University "Queen of the Pacific." You as a member of
the Alma Mater and later of the Alumni have a part to play in this the
biggest game at Varsity. In later years when U. B. C., at Point Grey,
has assumed her rightful position among the other universities of the
world are you going to be able to look back with pride and say, "I
played for U. B. C."
There are some who on graduating find the dignity attached to a
B. A., so overburdening that they can hardly smile, let alone indulge in
such rudeness as laughter. Others gather up all their knowledge and
college spirit, lock it in a penny bank, and bury it for fear it may get out
and do harm. The majority, however, are inclined when the opportunity comes to renew former college acquaintances and to indulge in
the evening's entertainment with the same old "Kla-How-Ya" spirit'
that we learned at Varsity. That is the spirit the Alumni wants to
keep going for with such a spirit we can accomplish our aim.
With a view to keeping alive ths spirit, the Alumni Association
■was reorganized last November, and plans have since been drawn up
that auger well for success. The activities of the "Curtain Club" were
revived in Zangwill's bright and interesting little play entitled "Six
Persons," which was presented at the general meeting of the Association
in January. Arthur Lord as the sin-stained, battered barrister, and
Dorothy Adams as the young spinster who wished to remain in his
memory "ever as an aching void." added further laurels to those they
had already won on former occasions with the "Plavers' Club."
The Alumni Employment Bureau aims to help in the way of locating summer work for undergraduates and permanent positions for
Each year Varsity loses many athletes who after graduation, either
join some other athletic club or give up sport because there is no club
in which they can carry on. Why should we have to drop our athletics
and why should we not continue to fight for Varsity ? The Alumni Athletic Club was organized this spring and will afford to those who wish,
an opportunity of indulging in sport. It s also out to foster sport at
Varsity. Since we are not "yet in a financial position to build our own
tennis courts, we have decided to try and centralise as many members as
we can in one of the city clubs. Laurel Tennis Club offers us the best
opportunity, and this summer will see quite a number of the A. A. C, at
Laurel. Next autumn we hope to organise football, basketball, and
swimming as well.
The Classics Club
'^r HE Classics Club was formed last year nwth a view to stimu-
^^ lating interest in the different phases of ancient life and customs.
This year the work has been carried on with increasing success
and enthusiasm. Professor Robertson kindly offered the use of his home
for the fortnightly meetings at which the members enjoyed excellent
and instructive papers on "Tunury in the Roman Empire." by Mr.
C. A. F. Clark, and on "Roman History from 59-23 B. C," by Miss
Majorie Bell and Miss Katherine Rees, Professor L. M. Robertson and
Miss Dorothea Buck, Miss Patricia Gignac and Professor H. T. Logan.
An interesting discusson followed during which refreshments were
The executive consisted of the following officers: Honorary President, Prof. L. M. Robertson; President, Mr. N. Robertson; Vice-President, Miss Patricia Gignac and Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Dora Pye.

Page One Hundred and Fourteen The Freshmen Initiation
HCCORDING to an old and respected custom, the freshmen or the
men of Arts '25 and Agriculture '25, were duly initiated into the
Alma Mater Society. The initiation of 1921 was unique in several respects. It was held outdoors and was accompanied by a spectacular bonfire. Picture two hundred freshmen cooped up in the Chemistry
lecture room waiting their turn to go down the line of waiting sophomores ! Hundreds of towels were prepared! Paints, dyes, and greases
of all colors and consistencies were secured to which was added flour and
soap tooth-paste! In fact nothing was left out that could be used to
make the men of '25 feel that they had been treated to one of the most
intersting initiations in the history of the University.
The freshmen contributed to making a success of the affair by constructing a mammoth heap of packing cases, soap-boxes, etc., on False
Creek flats. Hither, on Saturday night, after the performances on the
campus, the freshmen trooped in the glory of their war-paint, accompanied by most of the University. The huge pile was lighted and the
bright flames leaped skyward, setting afire the rockets which were
attached to the summit. Then the leaders of the students, Paul Whitley,
Art Lord, Charlie Zink and members of the faculty, "Freddy" Wood and
"Doc" Davidson, delivered their orations, as the flames devoured their
prey! When the pyramid of boxes had at length been consumed and the
speeches finished, the students lifted their voices as one man and acclaimed the work of the class of '25 which had made this thing possible.
In the making of tradition, the freshmen initiation plays an important
part. It is up to the students of the future, not only to uphold the
traditions of the past, but also to keep pace with the progress that has
been made and to make the initiation of 1922 the best the University has
ever experienced.

*yfl[ NDER the direction and inspiration of our Honorary President
^\ and founder, Professor Larsen, and our President, A. L. Stevenson, the Letters Club, for the session 1921-22. has maintained the
standard and interest of the two previous years. This is no mean praise.
In addition, two innovations have been made this year; first, the introduction of these discussion meetings at which a general topic is treated
by those short ten-minute papers. Secondly, ''Members night," an occasion on which all members were requested to bring original work, to
be subjected to general criticism.
Every fortnight, at the home of some generous Vancouver friend,
we have discussed great and fascinating subjects. The sleek submission
of Mr. Bernard Shaw: the romantic extrava gance of Mr. Arnold Bennett ; the rigid conservatism of Mr. H. G. Wells; even the dangerously
radical tendencies of John Drinkwate:—besides the whole field of
modern drama, verse, and fiction.    And there is more to follow.
For as it is only a moderate leap from. "The Spoon River Anthology"
to Matthew Arnold, and from discussion of the use of realistic detail, to
a criticism of the princpals of Greek tragedy. By the close of the evening, when we give ourselves up to the physical pleasures of coffee and
eke, it is often found, that numerous revelations have been made with
regard to the particular victims under discussion. Disclosures, which,
to these gentlemen, would be disconcerting and perhaps a trifle confounding. It is better to have wrong ideas, than to have none, and if
we have held too tenaciously to those ideas, because they were ? if
we have often hugged the question, unconscious even that there was a
question; if we have ventured a sweeping naturalization of an author's
work, on the strength of having read a single novel.—well, after all we
are still undergraduates.    We maintain an appearance of understading,
and if we do not know the . we at least take the trouble to
look as if we did.

Page One Hundred and Eighteen Editorial
There is really no necessity for an Editorial in the Annual al all. Do not
mistake this, Gentle Reader, for an apology for what follows. Far from it!
The statement is intended merely as our topic sentence. And what we are trying
to explain, (explaining being a subtle method of insulting your intelligence),
what we are trying to explain is the futility of explaining anything.
For obvious reasons. All Editorials are either didactical or statistical;
but we hasten to repudiate any suggestion that we compete with the "Ubyssey"
or the Calendar in their respective lines. And since, as we remarked above,
all Editorials are either Eulogies or Valedictories, We ask you how can we
choose? We cannot make this a eulogy, because, lo be quite fran'f, our excellent
judgment prohibits us from praising you, and our notorious modesty from praising ourselves. ..And when it comes to writing a pretty little farewell notice, even
OUR audacity fails us. Gentle Reader, did YOU ever go around lo all your
friends, and say goodbye, 'n everything,—and then not go? Well, at least you
have enough imagination to appreciate the benumbing consequences.    Quite so.
As We were saying, this Editorial having no other purpose to serve than
to amuse you, is succeding about as well as most Editorials.—Rather subtile..
What?—Of course our hu-nor is a little reminiscent of the sportive pachyderm,
but consider how invaluable the latter's hide must be when the shafts of ridicule
radiate. (That's not half as involved as you think it is, y'know.) And seriously
don't you think our diction is rather good? So massive and yet so flexible, like
a ton of putty for example. We heartly agree with the prof, who declared thai
"lo carelessly split one's infinitives, and then to deliberately ignore the error is
unpardonable." Quite—Hurrah, three hundred words. Well, it was pretty
bad we admit, but it's finished now. And you might have stopped at the first
sentence, you know, while We—well of course we might have loo.
