Make haste away, anilet one be
A friendly patron unto thee;
Lest wrapped from hence, 1 see thee lie
Torn for the uses of the pastery;
Or see thy injured leaves serve well
To ma^e loose gowns for mackerel;-
Or see the grocers, in a trice,
Make hoods of thee to serve out spice.

THE Now that the scenery is all in
CURTAIN place and the stage all set the
RISES Publications' Board presents to
the University and to the vast and disinterested outside world the 1918 "Annual."
Slowly the personnel of the actors and
stage hands has been changing, and with
this year the influence of old McGill
departs forever from our life. In September the regency ends, the University
assumes full control, and then we can
truly say the publications are written for
and by the students of U. B. C.
OUR We give to everybody—to con-
THANKS tributors, subscribers, advertisers, artists, critics and all those
who have faithfully stood by and watched
us work. We even thank the various members of the Faculty, for without them our
humorous column would be insignificant, if
not entirely negligible. At this point we
feel we ought to make some recognition of
the work of three students who, although
not on the Board, have been of invaluable
assistance to us. D. A. Wallace has protected  us  from  "literary"   productions  of
the Science men by sub-editing their contributions. Horace Stedman's artistic pen
is to a large extent responsible for the decoration of the group picture, while Alfred
Rive has given us a great deal of his time
both in the military department and in
checking up and revising the work of the
*      •      •
GROWTH Although nothing short of an
earthquake or an Orpheum
"headliner" can stir some of us from
our accustomed lethargy, even the dullest of us must see how the Univers-
it extending its sphere of influence and
usefulness to the people of Vancouver
and to the province as a whole. While
the attitude and actions of some of
our students as yet point to the high school
■stage in the development of a university,
nevertheless the time is at hand when, if
we expect our college to have a good reputation, we must become men and put away
childish things. The editor of the last Annual of our ancestor, McGill, B. C, complained of the same things, but saw the
millenium in the coming of the University.
Now we say, "Tht5£e will be a big differ-
Flve ence when we get into the new buildings."
Another dream! Buildings do not make a
university, a degree does not make an educated man, a lot of talk and childish
"rough-house" do not make a college spirit.
The improvement must be in ourselves,
though we do not entirely absolve the
Faculty. If you do not want to learn anything—get out! If you are ashamed of
being a student of this University—get
out! If you don't want to put your
shoulder to the wheel and push—GET
OUT! for there is no room for vou here.
THE If    there    is    any    one
CENTRE OF word that perfectly de-
INDIFFERENCE    scribes the Faculty and
students of this University which diagnoses our ills and suggests
the cure all in one, it is "apathy."    Proofs
of   this   statement    are   unnecessary—examples stare us in the face at every turn.
And to cure apathy, which grows deeper
the longer it is allowed to remain, there is
only one thing to do. Take an interest in
the college and everything about it! If
there is somebody or something that you
dislike, it is far better to assert yourself
and show your disapproval, than merely to
get into some secluded corner with some
bosom cronies and "grouch." When there
are things of which you do approve, then
get in and "boost" for all you are worth.
ATHLETICS There is a great tendency
for men, old and young, to
speak longingly and lovingly of the "good
old days." Forgive us if we yield to
In former Annuals of this college, and
in the Annuals of all other colleges that we
have ever heard of, one of the most important and valued sections is that dealing
with the athletic life of-the students. Our
book contains only two pages on this subject, and even that is out of proportion to
the general interest taken in sports by the
student body. It is deplorable, but it is
useless to expect any real improvement in
student affairs until this great uniting force
meeets the approval and support of both
faculty and students.
GAY LIFE Are we taking the wrong attitude towards our social functions? It is not yet time to say that
these, like the Lords of England, have
fallen   into   the   "sear   and   yellow   leaf."
A properly chaperoned dance has an excellent restraining influence after the somewhat free and easy life of the Common
Room, while the few manners which are of
necessity enforced,, cannot help but have a
salutary effect in,this   far  western metro-
Six polis. It may be all very well for some
high-minded young lady to drawl from the
depths of her Chesterfield, "No University dances." Certainly she doesn't need
them, but a college is not like a high school
where the majority of the students live
at home. On the contrary, we are faced
with an ever-increasing number of strangers in our city, friendless for the most part,
who are going to obtain their share of
amusement some way, and if they are discouraged by the Faculty and the Council
from getting it they are going to turn to
places of which we may not always approve. By all means let us have our parties.
ADVERTISERS Will the studerts of our
University ever learn to
let our advertisers know that we are
patronizing them? It seems very meet
and fit that when a plea has grown old
in service it should be laid to rest with
appropriate obsequies, and yet it seems that
as long as students are constituted as they
are that they will be vainly exhorted "to
the last syllable of recorded time." It was
only the other day that one of our young
■ Oorrr lake what

men went into a store on Granville Street
and paid $28.00 for a suit of clothes.
When he reached home his brother was
so pleased with the material that he also
went down, BUT NEITHER THE
more significant still, that store did not
advertise in last month's "Ubicee."    Pure
fiction, you say.    No!    Truth is stranger
than fiction.

LECTURES Pardon us, we do not refer
to the division of the course
of instruction to which we are all
more or less exposed. Throughout the
session, lectures on widely varied subjects are given in the University buildings by men of prominence in their respective professions. College students are not
inclined to be very broad-minded, and their
knowledge of subjects beyond their own
curriculums is, to say the least, limited—yet when they are given an opportunity to listen to men from other lands
and other colleges they generally seem to
find a previous engagement. At meetings
of the Vancouver Institute every Thursday night there is a pitifully small proportion of our students. Even when such
men as Dr. C. B. Gordon of the University of Pennsylvania or Major C. W. Gordon (Ralph Connor) gave special addresses
to us there were a great many who did not
do them the courtesy to be present. Let
us hope that in future we may not consider ourselves above "pending our ears" to
lecturers of ability*and distinction.
Dr. R. H. Mullin who is in charge of
the Department of Bacteriology is Canadian born, but for some years has been
"over the line" and has just recently returned to live among us. He received his
early education in Hamilton, Ont., and
in 1899. received his B. A. at Toronto University, passing with honors in the Natural
Sciences; in 1902 he graduated with honors
from the Medical. College with the degree
of M. B. For a year he was an interne
in the Toronto General Hospital, but the
following year saw him on the staff of his
Alma Mater in the Medical School, and
also as a member of the Provincial Board
of Health. The years from 1904-15 he
spent in the University of Minnesota, rising from demonstrator to Assistant Professor in Pathology and Bacteriology. In
1913 he became Assistant Professor of
Public Health, and in the ensuing year
was appointed Director of the Division of
Sanitation for the State. For two years his coming to Vancouver he was
Director of the State Hygienic Laboratory
of Nevada. Dr. Mullin compiled and published the Reports of the Laboratory
Division of the Minnesota State Board of
Health, and has also written articles on
"Vaccines and Vaccine Therapy."      The
St. Hulltn
members of his class are impressed with the
feeling that they are listening to one who
knows "whereof he speaks," and we trust
that he will find qjjr Fair city to his liking
and long remain with us.

Like many other celebrities Mr. Thomas
Pattison is a native of Scotland. He is an
M. A. of Glasgow University, where he
was specially trained in Normal work.
Coming to Vancouver in the early days of
the twentieth century he has become a
well-known figure   not   only   in teaching
circles but in the athletic world. Mr. Pattison is a Rugby enthusiast, and was at one
time one of the best players on the Western Coast. Since his retirement from
active playing he has devoted his energies
to building up many amateur Rugby
teams, chiefly among the high school students. Besides being a Rugby man, Mr.
Pattison is a keen yachtsman, and was also
a well-known oarsman. In 1901 he was
appointed to the staff of the King Edward
High School, where he remained until the
opening of the King George High School
in 1914. Mr. Pattison comes with an excellent record not only in the class-room
but in the several branches of athletics in
which he has participated.
Aubrey N. Bt. John iffltltmta"
Idealist, dreamer, seer, student—probably a poet to boot—these are one's first
impressions, verified as judgments on more
intimate acquaintance.
He was a scholar at Winchester, one
of England's oldest and most famous
schools, going thence to Oxford, where
he won scholarships and exhibitions, was
President of New College Debating
Society and took his degree in 1888, with
honors in classics, and received his
M. A. seven years later. On leaving Oxford  he entered  the  Church,  was curate
of Berkeley Chapel, one of the most fashionable churches in London. However, he
became interested in journalism and was
occupied with this work in London, Boston and later in Vancouver. This year he
was appointed Lecturar in Greek at the
U. of B. C. He isStill a valued contributor of articles on poetry, painting and
music to English magazines.

NE phrase is all that is necessary
as a summary of the Council's
record for the year; it is, in the
words of the world's greatest
"Love's     Labour's
This,  however,   is
"Dramatis Personae"
not  to  say that  the
of the students' ad
ministrative body has been delighting us
with a comedy. That were to perpetrate
a witticism of the wildest wickedness.
Moreover, the perpetrator should be condemned to one year's penal servitude in
the U. B. C. Miltonic Reformatory, there
to break his heart memorizing those portions of the "Paradise Lost" which describe the pangs of Satan and his host.
The more liberal minded amongst us, of
course, have not any intention of making
such implication as is inconsistent with
our knowledge of the truth. We know
that the members of the Council, from the
President and Secretary down to the humblest official, have labored long and loyally
for the "summum bonum" of us all.
"Honour to whom honour is due." We
have taken this opportunity of recording
our appreciation of their diligence and
Although the Council has worked faithfully, its work of faith has been largely in
vain. With the final rejection of the
amended Constitution, its efforts have gone
to waste. Sad, too, is the decree that we
must return to the old order of things. The
Jews, marching into exile, had not a
greater cause for grief than we have, who
now must perforce forfeit and forget, even
for a year, our hopes of a fuller freedom.
It is true that the "Powers-that-be" know
what is best, and we do not question their
wisdom. In the light of their wider experience, we acknowledge the many flaws
in the rejected Constitution; but the pity
is that these could not have been pointed
out, and saner suggestions made, in sufficient time to save us from the retrograde.
In the present state of affairs our only
alternative is a step backward; while that
of the Council is to close its life, not with
the oft-repeated "Something attempted,
something done," but with the ignoble
"Something attempted, nothing done." It
is not a comedy we have been witnessing,
but a tragedy.
A different story might have been told
had it not been for certain contributory
causes. In the first place, there should
have been a better understanding between
the "Powers-that-be" and the Students'
Executive.    If this were, not possible, why
have a Faculty Committee or Faculty Representatives ? Through them, both parties
should be prepared to meet on one common ground. We are all working towards
the same end, viz.: the creation tif a college spirit which will rival that of older
and larger universities. There is only one
price to this commodity; and that is a
freer exchange of mutual trust and confidence. Again, there is not the co-operation
between the Council and the general student body. (The reference here is solely
to the men undergraduates.) Without this
second essential we cannot have an efficient self-government; and without an efficient self-government we shall never win
the good-will of the Faculty. Our unfortunate Council has been found fault with
and criticized by all and sundry; but with
all its faults and failings, it is not altogether blameworthy. If. we had carped
less and co-operated more, its labours
would" not have been lost. There's a wheel
within a wheel; and the sooner we realize
the fact the brighter will our future be.
Here's to the near future:
A Strong Council,
A Sympathetic Faculty, and
The Student? support.
Eleven Twelve Thirteen Nature's itotres
Pensive as a lonely crane
Keeping watch upon thy beach,
Stand I here to seek again
Soothing comfort from thy speech.
Methinks there rises from thy breast,
A voice that tries this mortal ear,—
A voice that would my soul bid rest
From sordid cares and useless fear.
O restless Sea!    Come spell thy charm this clay around!
O murmuring Tide!    Come wrap me in the sense qf sound!
Nature's shrines I tread and see
Thy cathedral columns rise,
Trees so great they seem to me.
Bearing up the azure skies.
Methinks there whispers through thy vault
A voice, that calls me from this dust,
A voice, that bids earth's passions halt,—
Inspires with thoughts both kind and just.
O Chanting Glade!    Come spell thy charm this clay around!
O whispering Grove!    Come wrap me in the sense of sound!
Whitened waters rush amain!
Chasms deep attest thy might!
Snowcapped mother dams in vain
Offspring thundering from her height!
Methinks within thy deafening roar,
A voice would reach my prisoned heart, —
A voice that soothes my soul so sore
And strength for struggling would impart.
O boist'rous Stream!    Come spell thy charm this clay around!
O echoing Depths!    Come wrap me in the sense of sound!

T a time when the combined thought and energy of the greatest nations' of the
world is concentrated entirely on one purpose, the successful prosecution of the
war, it is only just that a publication which professes to he a record of the work
and activities of the students of this University should he largely dedicated to
the part they are playing in the great undertaking. "
Our Roll of Honor contains the names of over two hundred men who have left us to
do their bit wherever they might he needed. That is to say, one-third of the students
enrolled since the opening of the University have donned the khaki. Of these the majority
have seen service at the front, thirty have given their lives for the cause, a few have been
taken prisoner by the enemy, many have been wounded once or twice and are still carrying
on, ten have won decorations on the field of battle, and a small number have returned to us
as unfit for further service as a result of wounds received in the firing line.
"When our University opened its doors in September, 1915, we were lacking in the traditions that help to make a college. Not so to-day; our boys have established for us
precedents that the most venerable institution might be proud of.
The University of B. C. is an investment on the part of the state in the youth of the
Province. They that take advantage of this education are indebted to the country, nor can
this obligation he paid other than by a life of usefulness. Our representatives in France
came to U. B. C. to fit themselves for service. Truly they have served and are serving. They
are fulfilling their responsibilities and are making good.
The call came; they answered.

Claude was a member of Science '17 when he left us to exchange the gown for
the tartan. He was well known as a footballer and in his first year played Rugby for
the University. It was with the bombing section of the 72nd Seaforth Highlanders
that he went overseas. Claude was over six feet tall and knew well how to swing a
kilt, so it can easily be believed that he made a splendid and imposing figure in his
uniform. On one occasion he was among those chosen to be the King's bodyguard at
a large inspection in England. On April 14th, 1917, he was wounded in the fighting
that followed the battle of Vimy and a few days later died of wounds in a French
"Effie," as he was known to his comrades in the 196th, was a member of Arts
'17, McGill, and attended the sessions of 1912-13. He was a "theolog," and for
a time had charge of a church in Alberta. The two years preceding his enlistment
he spent in teaching school. He went to England with the 196th, was drafted to the
46th in France, and was killed in the taking of Vimy. His body lies in a shell-torn
grave on that battle-scarred ridge.
"The fittest place where man should die
Is where he dies for man."
Bill enlisted in May, 1916, with the 121st Western Irish. He took the officers'
training course in Victoria and acted as one of the supernumary officers until the
battalion left for overseas, when he reverted to the rank of sergeant in order to go
with the rest. While in England he attended a musketry school where he won the
crossed rifles for marksman's score. He went to France in the following February
as a lieutenant with the 102nd Battalion. On April 9th at Vimy Ridge he was
seriously wounded in the back with shrapnel. He died in the Empire Hospital,
London, June, 1917. A friend at that hospital wrote: "Billy was always cheerful
and only sorry that he could not go over the top with the boys."

Norman was a native of this Province, having been born in New Westminster,
November 17th, 1897. In 1914 he matriculated and entered the University. Two
years later he joined the 196th and went overseas with it. In February, 1917, he
joined the 46th Battalion in France, and had only been with that unit about six
weeks when he was wounded, some few days after the Vimy battles. He was removed
to a hospital in Exeter, England, where he died on June 2nd, 1917. Norman Hughes
was of a quiet disposition, and made a conscientious and energetic soldier. He was
at all times a credit to his friends, his home town and his battalion.
Tom, who belonged to Science '19, joined the Royal Flying Corps in the spring
of 1917 and trained for some months in Toronto. He left for England to continue
his training just before Christmas. Late in January of this year, when he was
executing manoeuvres and looping the loop at a height of some 6,000 feet with a new
type of machine, something went wrong, the plane made a long nose dive and crashed
to the ground, instantly killing the youthful aviator. It was officially stated that
the accident was in no way the fault of the daring young pilot but that it was due to
some defect in the machine.
"But oh J Fell death's untimely frost
That nipped my flower sae early."
Killed in the capture of Vimy Ridge. Frank was a well-known member of
Science '19. On the formation of the Western Universities Battalion he enlisted in
it and went overseas with that unit. He fell in the taking of the "Pimple" on Vimy
by the 46th Battalion, April, 1917. Frank was from New Westminster, and a
member of that contingent, of the 196th, which has acquitted itself so nobly in all its
struggles. He was quiet and reserved, at all times a cheerfuLjnd*conscientious soldier,
and it was with sorrow and regret that we learned of his death.
Morrison left the ranks of Science '18 to enlist in those of the Princess Pats in
the summer of 1915. While he was training at Niagara his father was lost on the
Lusitania; he was granted his discharge because of this, and returned home. In
December he again enlisted, this time in the Queen's Battery at Kingston and went
to England in February, 1916. Five months later he was sent to France and after
serving at the front one year he was killed by a shell when the battery was changing
its position.
Ed. was. a prominent student of Science '17 when he left the University in the
fall of 1915 to join the 54th Battalion. For a time he was attached to the recruiting
staff in Vancouver, but left this city for England in the summer of the next year, and,
after fourteen months' service at the front he was killed at Arras, April, 1917. He
is the son of Mr. Arthur E. Rand, a prominent citizen of New Westminster.
Jim was elected president of Arts '18 in his freshman year, but he was with us
only a short time before he enlisted. He went overseas as a lieutenant with the second
draft of the 47th in June, 1915, and later went to France as a machine gun officer.
He served in the trenches for eighteen months, winning his captaincy on the field, and
was killed in action in the early stages of the Lens offensive in August, 1917. General
Currie said of him: "He gave his life leading his men in one of the hardest fights
and most glorious victories we have ever had. . . . You have the assurance from
me that he was beloved by his men and brother officers. . . . gallant to a fault,
efficient and capable to a marked degree, a leader in the truest sense of the word. His
example was an inspiration to all and will live long in the memory of the old 7th
Joe entered McGill in 1914 as an energetic member of Arts '18. At the end of
his second year he joined the 196th Battalion and went overseas. He was drafted to
the 46th Battalion and was first wounded in May, 1917, at Lens. When completely
recovered he returned to the line, and after another three months' service fell at
Passchendaele in November of the same year.
"We live in deeds not years, in thoughts not breaths."
"Wearing the white flower of a blameless life
Before a thousand peering littlenesses."
Tom was wounded on the twelfth of April, 1917, on Vimy Ridge. He was
removed to England but died of wounds at the hospital at Huddersfield, Yorkshire,
on the 27th of the same month. He was a member of Arts '16, and in his fourth
year was President of the Literary Society and Treasurer of the Students' Council.
He was one of the finest debaters in the University, representing his alma mater in
the debate with Washington. Tom graduated with honors, and immediately after
Convocation in 1916 he enlisted in the 196th. He went over the top with the 46th
at Vimy Ridge, there receiving the wounds that caused his death.
"Proud then, clear-eyed and laughing, go to greet Death as a friend."
Ed Traves was listed as missing in May, 1917, but has since been reported
killed. He went overseas with the 196th, and was sent to the 46th in France. He
went over the top on Vimy on the ninth of April and again in the memorable snowstorm fight on the twelfth and came through safely. It was in an attack on Lens
on the 5th of May, 1917, that he "went west." Ed was genuinely liked and respected
by his comrades, and it was with keen regret that we heard of his death. He is the
son of Mr. E. C. Traves, of NewWestminster. Before becoming a soldier he was a
well-known member of Arts '18. «£
Andrew Thomson was born and educated in Hwangyen, China, in which country
his father was a missionary. He was a Freshman in Arts '17, McGill, before he
removed to Idaho, where he attended the State College and won the scholarship for
his year. This scholarship he resigned in order to enlist in the 72nd Battalion, with
which he went to France. He saw service at Ypres, on the Somme and at Vimy,
where he was killed on Easter Monday, 1917.
To quote a letter from his father: "He was a keen student and often, in his
letters from the front, expressed his longings for the end of his duties there in order
that he might return and complete his studies in the University of B. C."
"Strong in will,
To strive, to seek, to find and not to yield."
Frank, second son of Mr. and Mrs. George H. Turnbull, was born in New
Westminster, where he attended public and high school, and where his parents still
reside.    In 1915 he graduated from Normal, and the following term attended University as a Freshman in Arts '19.    Frank's eyesight was poor, and he was turned
down a number of times before he memorized the test chart and thus evaded  the
doctor.    He went to the 46th as a stretcher-bearer on the first of February, 1917, and
on the fifth, of May was killed by a German shell while he was attending a wounded
comrade during a night attack on an enemy's salient near Lens.
. We feel that our records would be far from complete without special reference to
the late Captain LeRoy, Officer Commanding the British Columbia Company of the
Western Universities Battalion.
Not only the members of that battalion but many others throughout the length
and breadth of our Dominion knew and loved him. Mere words cannot express in a
small degree his sterling worth. Each and every man who knew him cherishes his
own fond memories of "Pete." As we look back it seems hard to believe he has really
gone, for his noble spirit is still with us, a reality and physical force helping us to
play the game.    At the final count may we go as he did, gloriously.

The University lost one of her best athletes when Carl enlisted in the B. C. Horse.
From this he transferred to the 47th in order to get to France more quickly. He was
for a time attached to the brigade signallers in England; but again transferred, this
time to the Royal Flying Corps. He was granted his wings in June, 1916, and piloted
his machine across the Channel. Of splendid physique, quick to think, quick to act
and absolutely fearless, Carl was created by destiny for an aviator. This was abundantly proven when, in January, 1917, though scarcely twenty-one, he was created
captain and flight commander. That he merited this promotion was fully established
in June when "For obtaining valuable information in the face of great danger" he was
decorated with the Croix de Guerre by the French Government. By stealing well
down into low-lying clouds Carl had obtained photographs of the German line and
some new fortifications which the enemy particularly wished to conceal. Although
observed and submitted to severe shelling he persisted until his purpose had been
accomplished. On August last Carl was reported missing and, although word has
been received from Germany concerning his observer on this occasion, nothing has been
heard concerning Carl.
The British Government has recently recognized his valuable services by awarding
him the Military Cross.
"Ronnie" was a popular member of Arts '16 when he left McGill in June, 1915,
to join the 47th Battalion. Two months after enlistment he was sent in a draft to
France and in December of the same year was granted his commission in the Royal
Garrison Artillery. In January, 1917, he was slightly wounded, but five weeks later
returned to his battery. In one of last year's big pushes Ronnie fell, but not before
his deeds had earned for him a recommendation for the Military Cross, which was
posthumously awarded.    Some little time ago the medal was presented to his father.
In the spring of 1917 Sergt. Dustan was awarded the Military Medal for bravery
in the field and faithful devotion to duty. Before he joined the Canadian Engineers
he was a student in Arts '17, McGill and at Westminster Hall. In the spring of
1915 he left England with the Fourth Field Company of Canadian Engineers, and
notwithstanding the fact that he has since that time been continuously in or about the
firing line, he has so far escaped injury.
Any of the original members of Arts '17 will remember Arnold Jackson, who
joined the 47th Battalion in the spring of 1915 as a subaltern. He went from Vernon
Camp to join the 29th in France. Whilst a lieutenant in the latter unit Arnold's
natural capacity for leadership gained for him distinction, and at St. Eloi he won the
"Military Cross and promotion on the field to the rank of captain. For about a year
he was an acting major in a training reserve in England. At present he is an observer
in the Kite Balloon section of the Flying Corps.
Harry Letson of Science '17 left Vancouver as a sergeant in the 196th Western
Universities Battalion. While at Camp Hughes he was granted his commission, and
later took a course in musketry at Ottawa. After a few months spent at Seaford in
England he was sent to the 54th Battalion in France as a lieutenant. He was Acting
Company Commander when he was severely wounded in a raid on Vimy Ridge on
March 1st, 1917. For the gallant work he did in this raid and for his bravery on the
field Harry was awarded the Military Cross. He is once more with us, having been
returned home, his injuries unfitting him for active service.
Twenty-four GORDON  W. SCOTT.
Gordon enlisted with the 29th; he was one of the first boys to sign up from old
McGill. When in England he trained as a scout and on proceeding overseas was
attached to the brigade scouts. He was mentioned in despatches for his splendid
work and on Vimy in the April battles won the Military Medal. At the same time
he received the serious wounds from which he has not yet recovered.
Charlie Traves crossed the Atlantic with the 196th Battalion, in which unit he
was a sergeant. In February, 1917, he was sent to the 102nd with a draft of sergeants
from the 196th, among them Miller, Holmes, Scott and "Pewee" Evans, all of whom
kept their rank in France. He was twice mentioned in despatches once, strangely
enough, for gallant work done in a raid on a brewery, before he won the Military
Medal at Passchendaele. He was offered his commission on the field of battle but
declined it and was sent to England to take an officers' training course. He is now
in the Old Country but expects soon to return to the 102nd as a lieutenant.

John was a member of Arts '18, and in
his third year took part in many of the
activities of the University. He left Vancouver in April, 1917, with the 68th Battery, and in October was sent to the 21st
Howitzer Battery at the front. In January, 1918, he was slightly wounded in the
ear, but in a letter written by him shortly
afterwards, he said he expected to be back
in the line in a couple of weeks' time. It
is likely that he is now again with his
George entered Science '19 as a Freshman in 1915, the following year he joined
the 196th. Early in the spring of 1917
he was sent to the 46th, with which unit
he is at present. In the offensive at Lens
in August, 1917, he was wounded, but not
seriously, for in November he returned to
the line. He is one of the few 196th boys
left in the 46th, and expects soon to transfer to the Royal Flying Corps.

Best went to England with the 196th,
from which unit he was transferred to the
46th. While in France the cold and wet
and the trying conditions there had their
effect on his health and he has been returned home on account of rheumatism.
At present he spends his days at the University and sleeps at the Military Annex.
Where he spends the intermediate hours is
none of our business. P.S.—He was a
"theolog" in Arts '18 before he joined up.
Fred Day wOn distinction by being the
first "D" Company man of the 196th to
be wounded, this on the ninth of February,
1917. Since then he has been in four different hospitals in England. He had the
misfortune to lose an eye. When las-*
heard from he was on leave in Scotland.
Before Fred enlisted in the 196th he was
a Freshman in Science '19.
Bennet attended McGill in his freshman
year, Arts '17. For a time he was employed in a bank in the city. When the
call came he joined the 196th as a signaller. As such he was transferred to the
46th Battalion with which unit he was
when wounded.
Charlie, formerly of the 196th, went
through the Vimy battles with the 46th.
In May, 1917, he was slightly wounded
at Lens, but was back in the line four
weeks later. On October 27th he was
wounded more severely at Passchendaele
and was sent to England to recover. In
his last letter, written from the Canadian
Convalescent Camp at Epsom, dated January 13th, 1918, he says that he will probably be returned *ko the front shortly.
Charles graduated m the summer of 1916.
Twenty-six Twenty-seven T.  IAN  GIBSON.
The biggest man in the Canadian Army,
Ian Gibson was a member of Arts '16 and
a prominent man about the college when
in the spring of 1915 he joined the first
University Company of the Princess Pats.
He was wounded in June of the following
year and sent back to England, where he"
received his commission before being returned to his unit. At Passchendaele in
November, 1917, he was again wounded,
losing his left arm as a result. It is likely
that he will be returned to Canada in the
near future.
After a successful Freshman year in
Arts '19 Lord gave up his college course to
follow in the footsteps of two older
brothers. In the summer of 1916 he joined
the University Battalion and went to England with that unit in the fall. He was
wounded in July, 1917, when serving at
the front with the 46th, and as a result,
has been in hospital in "Blighty" for the
last six months.
"Ernie" of Science '17 enlisted in the
P. P. C. L. I. in April, 1915. In November of the same year he was granted a commission in the Royal Engineers and went
to France with them. He was soon promoted from second to first lieutenant.
Last July he was seriously gassed but is
once more on active service. Those who
know Ernie will appreciate the faithful
persevering devotion to duty that has several times been mentioned in despatches.
"Molly" Lambert left the shelter and
protection of Science '17 in November,
1915, to go to England, where he received
his commission in the Imperial forces. He
participated in the quelling of a riot in
Ireland; then he was sent to France, and
on August 17, 1917, was wounded. On
recovering he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps, and is now training in the old
land for that service.
Ray was a distinguished member of
Arts '19 before an unscrupulous recruiting
sergeant deluded him into joining "Brock's
Babies." He joined the 46th Battalion in
France in February, 1917, and was wounded in May while using a machine gun to
good purpose against a German counter
attack. As a consequence of his injuries
he has had the misfortune to lose a leg
and is now on his way to Canada. May
he soon be with us again.
Anything but a brief appellation—the
owner, formerly of Arts '18, was one of
the budding non-coms of "D" Company
196th before the 102nd felt the need of
his ability. It was in February, 1917, that
he went to France and in April that he
-returned to England, having been wounded in the Vimy scrap on the ninth of that
month. He has now recovered from his
injuries, but is unfit for further active service and at the time of writing is in Vancouver on leave pending discharge.
"You can't chew bombs and get away
with it."—Shakespeare.
Al'f was so sure he had absorbed enough
to get through, that he waited till after
exams before joining the Varsity Battalion. While serving with the 46th he was
wounded on May 5th during ,a night raid
on Lens, by what is known in trench
parlance as a "potato masher." His battle-
scarred visage is often seen about the University halls seeking elusive and dilatory
copy for the military section of the Annual.

George is not forgotten by his classmates
of Arts '18, in which year he was when he
left to don the khaki and the 196th badge.
He went to the 46th Battalion at the
front with a large draft of 196th boys in
February, 1917. He has been wounded
twice, the first time very slightly, but as
a result of the second, received in June,
he was sent to hospital in Blighty. On his
recovery he returned to France and has
spent several more months there already.
He is another of our young, old soldiers.
"Steve," of one-time Rugby fame, represented Science '16 in the Princess Pats.
He was on the machine gun in France
until he was wounded on June 2nd,
1916, at Ypres and sent to the Old Country to recover. There, when recovered,
he attended an O. T. C. and returned to
France as a lieutenant. He was wounded
a second time on Vimy in April last, and
when quite better transferred to the Flying Corps. He is now in France as an
"The writer writ."
Miller   volunteered   ih   the   spring   of ■
1916, went with  the  196th overseas and
was   drafted   to   the   102',d   Battalion   in
France.   He was wounded oh Easter Mon
day, 1917, and is now home again. At the
time of writing his cheerfully perpetual
smile and. his startling pompadour are to be
seen in and around the halls of learning as
he busies himself in the search of matter
for the military pages of the Annual, and
in his spare time attends lectures.
"Although he had much wit
He was very shy of using it."
Known as "Dick" by his comrades in
the 196th and in the 46th. He is a true
philosopher and when annoyed or troubled
writes violently in his diary or asks for
autographs for his album. Dick was
wounded in May, 1917, and is probably in
England at present. His old year is Arts
'18 and chemistry is his favorite subject.
■".Meek," another member of Arts '18
before he joined the 196th, in which he
was a sergeant, used to practice the giving
of drill orders on the unfortunate members
of No. 4 platoon of the O. T. C. He went
to the 46th and was wounded and gassed
on June 4th, 1917. For a time he was in
hospital in England. Now he is recovered
he expects to be granted his commission
and will, it is likely, soon be back in the
trenches as a lieutenant.
"Doug" came from the Windy City to
become a student in Science '18. During
the session of 1915-16 he played on the
Rugby team, was treasurer of the Science
Undergraduate Society and a library prefect. In the summer of 1916 he joined
the 196th and the following summer was
in France showing them how to run the
46th Battalion. He was wounded and is
now recovering in England.
, Morley left the ranks of Arts '17 for
•those of the 196th. He was sent to the
102nd Battalion in France as a sergeant,
and after eight months' service in France
was gassed at Passchendaele on October.
31st, 1917. He is now at Seaford preparing to go once more to the place where one
might expect to find one of the Scott family—"in the thick of it."
Paul went overseas with the Western
Universities Battalion. He reverted from
the rank of sergeant to go to France where
he became a private in the 46th. After
spending the summer of 1917 in that sunny
clime he returned to England, having been
wounded on August 23rd. Paul attended
McGill, B.C., as a Freshman in Science
'18. The following \ear, on graduating
from Normal, he enlisted in the 196th.     ,

Thirty-one Another fragment from France is J. R.
Kingham of Science '21. He left his home
in Victoria to go to France with the 88th
Battalion, but after a time in England he
went to the 16th Canadian Scottish. During the advance on the Somme in September, 1916, Josh tried to stop a German
bullet with his head. This attempt was
only partially successful, and the result is
that he is now with us endeavoring to
make his head more impervious by cramming it with all the mysterious subjects that
Science men study.
Lieut. Warren Livingston, Military Editor of last year's Annual, who had been
severely wounded and had lost an eye, is
again on active service—this time with the
Forestry Corps.
We are glad to be able to take this
opportunity  of  paying  a   tribute   to   Pte.
Mack Eastman who is serving in France
as a private in the ranks. We understand
that Pte. Eastman was offered a "bombproof," which he turned down. Had he
wished it he might have taken out his commission but he preferred rather to suffer
hardship with the boys than hold down a
"cushy" job as a pen pusher. It is the
private soldier that is winning the war.
All honor to such men as Mack Eastman.
Any members of Arts '19 or '18 will
well remember "Brick" Anderson, who
was so fond of raising ructions in class and
out. He is not only making a name for
himself as a soldier with the 46th, but is
writing poetry as well. One day while
up the line he chanced to find a Photoplay
Magazine. After reading it he was inspired to write a few verses to the fair
screen actresses whose picture he saw
within. The magazine published these
verses with the remark that they were the
best they had received for some time.
"Peewee" Evans, formerly of Arts '19,
who was a sergeant in the 196th, went to
the 102nd across the Channel. After being with   that  unit  a week  he was  pro
moted to a position on the brigade staff as
German interpreter. This speaks well for
the Modern Language Department of
U. B. C, where he took his first and only
year in that subject.
In preparing these military pages for
publication we have been hampered by two
things or rather the lack of two things,
information and space, and as a result have
been unable to give more than the bare
facts about those who have fallen.
We wish it had been possible to tell in
full how each medalist won his decoration,
but in the majority of cases no details have
been forthcoming. Quite often it has been
necessary to rely on the daily press for
particulars that could not be obtained in
any other way.
The Roll of Honor has been painstakingly checked over and brought up to date
by Miss Griffiths, and should there be
any omission it is not through want of careful work.
Many of the pictures are poor likenesses, and in some cases are reproductions
from back annuals*<©r enlargements from
snapshots of indifferent quality.
Thirty-two We are constantly receiving evidence of
the success of the student as a soldier.
Lieut. Frampton, formerly of Arts '17, was
recently mentioned in despatches for gallant work in the field.
fflt&ttm tfmuersftfra Serutce (ftlub
Sergeant Robert Mcllvride of the 27th
Battalion, who at one time attended McGill, Victoria, has recently been decorated
with the Military Medal. Although not
a member of U. B. C. he is entitled to a
place on our honor roll. Those of us who
come from Victoria may remember him.
We hope that after the war he will resume
his studies in U. B. C.
One of our students who has recently been granted his commission is
Douglas Wright, better known as "Rasty"
to his fellow-students. He has now returned to his old regiment, the P. P. C.
L. I., but this time as a lieutenant. His
father, the Rev. T. H. Wright, an old
soldier and a veteran of the Reil rebellion
is one of this year's graduates.
Others who have received their commissions since they left us are Earl Stewart
and Johnny Anderson.
On the evening of December 13, 1917,
a dozen of the twenty-odd returned men
of "D" Company (B. C. Company) of the
196th Western Universities Battalion then
in Vancouver, met at the Grosvenor Hotel
for the purpose of discussing the advisability of holding a reunion function of
some description. The outcome of this
gathering was the formation in embryo of
an association, the object of which was to
provide means for the bringing together of
all the old "D" Company boys who were
fortunate enough to again tread the soil of
British Columbia.
As a step towards organization the following officers were elected: Hon. President, Dr. F. F. Wesbrook; President,
Capt. E. C. Sheppard; Vice-President,
Lieut. C. W. Whittaker; Secretary and
Treasurer, Q. M. Sergt. G. F. Pyke;
Executive Committee, the officers, with
D. W. Robson and E. W. Bigelow.
At a meeting held at the Vancouver
Hotel, February 9th, following a luncheon, the name "Western Universities Service Club" was decided upon, and the
scope of the organization extended to include "all members of the 196th Battalion
resident in B. C, all students of any
Western University who have enlisted for
service in the C. E. F. and are resident in
B. C, and all residents of B. C. who had
attended Eastern Universities and enlisted
in the C. E. F., the line between east
and west being drawn between Ontario
and Manitoba." The Universities of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta are
to be communicated with, with the object
of having each University form an organization along similar lines. The objects
of the club are purely social, and it will
not in any way clash with any of the returned soldiers' organizations now in existence. Monthly luncheons are to be held
on the second Saturday of each month in
order to provide a mgans of bringing the
boys together as rfwy return home.

Thirty-four (fLaimiMctn ©filters Irafmng Corps
|URING the past two years it
has been felt that, although the
corps had accomplished something, there was lacking that
essential quality of discipline.
To be a good officer one must first learn
to obey. The lack of discipline was explained by the difficulties of organization,
in the loss of efficient members, who were
continually leaving for the front, and in
the failure of the government to grant to
the corps the recognition it deserved.
With the beginning of the present term
an organized effort was made to establish
the corps on a military footing. Major*
Wesbrook, C. O., was fortunate in securing as Faculty representative Dr. Ashton,
and as Adjutant, Capt. Ramsay, M. C.
Dr. Ashton, who had taken a course at
the Royal School of Infantry at Victoria,
thus qualifying for his commission, was in
a way, an old-timer at the game. He had
been in his school corps at Eton, and later
took an active interest in the O. T. C. at
Oxford. Capt. Ramsay, a graduate of
Sandhurst, and a veteran of the present
war, took over the orderly room in October, bringing with him Sergt.-Major Instructor Perry, of the R. S. I.
The transformation of the wild-eyed
mob of Freshmen and the slightly more
dignified Sophs into men of military stamp
was rapidly accomplished, uniforms were
fitted and dealt out early in November.
With the issuance of uniforms came the
formation of the company.
It had been the practise in previous years
to form two half companies, one half composed of men who had proved efficient the
preceding year, the other of Freshmen.
Capt. Ramsay, however, conceived the idea
of forming one company, divided into four
platoons, in which the efficient and non-
efficient would be equally represented. By
this system platoon competition could be
carried out year by year. With the Sophs
entering the charmed circle of exemption
from drill on becoming Juniors, the newly
arrived Freshmen would find the late "has
been" Freshmen there to keep them in their
place. Thus an "esprit de corps" could be
and has been firmly established.
This scheme has proved highly successful. The men entered into the spirit of
the game, and under the able instruction of
Sergt.-Major   Perry   now   present a very
favorable appearance. Up to date lectures
have been delivered by Major Bunbury,
Capt. Halsall of the R. S. I., Victoria;
Capt. Ramsay, Lieut. Ashton and Sergt.-
Major Perry. For those who intend writing for their "A" certificates in April special courses have been conducted by Capt.
Ramsay and Sergt.-Major Perry.
There have been several changes in the
appointments of N. C. O.'s, but finally,
.what might be termed the "permanent"
staff has been established. Its composition

I HE work of the Red Cross Society has been considerably extended this year. We have received
many large donations and have been able to direct
our energies largely to the work most needed, with
the result that a large box of articles has been sent to headquarters every month.
We are greatly indebted to the Alumni, from whom we
received half the proceeds of their dance; to the Musical
Society, which donated to us the total proceeds of their concert; to the Agricultural Society, which held a dance in our
behalf, and to the Players' Club, which gave us a generous
donation from the proceeds of the annual play. A voluntary
contribution given at the girls' masquerade also brought us a
goodly sum. Our own efforts to raise money were well repaid;
a sale of home cooking, a pumpkin pie sale on Hallowe'en, and
a tag day, added considerably to the amount in our treasury.
That we have become an authorized auxiliary branch of
the Canadian Red Cross Society, and as such, are represented
on the Executive of the Vancouver Red Cross has added to
our responsibility and it behooves us to do our ■work conscientiously as part of so vital an organization.

Thirty-six Thirty-seven Alumitf Notes of Arts '10
From an Issue of the 1930 Annual
Miss Axel Miniot (known to her
friends as Dorothy Bolton) has at last
achieved the triumph of having her name
on Granville Street. Her dramatic career
had its inception in the final year of her
University course when her hitherto undiscovered talent was brought to light.
Among her retinue are Isobel Harvey,
M.D., in the capacity of private physician
and Kathryn Bradshaw, K.C., her lawyer and "man of affairs." Miss Bradshaw has full scope for her pronounced
abilities in keeping Miss Miniot free of
the troubles which are inevitable to one in
her position.
She whom her class-mates knew as
Norma Clarke, is a close follower of her
friend's histrionic career, and is usually
to be found in a box at the performances.
Another striking personality is that of
Miss Iona Griffith, the stateswoman. She
has emulated the example of Mr. Lloyd
George step by step until she is now prime
minister of Great Britain. Mary Macdonald   is   her   private   secretary   though,   of
course, she always insists upon the superiority of "the greatest of all  Canadians."
It is hardly necessary to dilate on Lena
Bodie's success. After graduation she was
induced to remain as instructor in French
and Scotch phonetics.
Ruth Fulton and Viva Martin are both
in the employ of the Government as expert chemists and analysts in the secret service department.
It is whispered that Eleanor Frame has
taken up the "Bohemian life" and goes in
for "vamping."
Norah Coy has a neat little establishment just off the University Campus. Her
device is a pair of silver scissors rampant,
with the motto, "Can't I just cut your
hair a little?"
Our reporter had a minute's conversation with Grace Henderson in her studio.
She was engaged on a set of sketches of
University celebrities of her day. Some
were replicas of original sketches made in
her college da}'S in the margins of notebooks.
The University Film Co. is actively
engaged in producing "feature fillums"
depicting Hazel Wilband and Agnes
Morrison in prominent roles.
At least one member of Arts '18 has
achieved the position in life for which she
showed herself most suited. Stella McGuire is now a society leader, and is able
to indulge her heart-breaking proclivities
to the fullest extent.
For the benefit of any who have been
out of touch with their Alma Mater in
recent years it should be mentioned that
Irene Mounce is now Dean of the Woman's College.
Myrtle Sillers is an ardent I. W. W.
supporter. Not long ago she was arrested
and tried for rioting and violence, but her
well-known eloquence procured her release.
Another girl who owes her life-work to
a talent discovered while at University is
Miss Bonnie Clement, who now manages
a thriving "secono^hand" store on Cordova
Thirty-eight Harold Miller is now the well known
judge of the Juvenile Court.
Harold Mclnnes is in the pedagogical
profession and is principal of a seminary for
young ladies.
George Barclay is one of the finest
singers with the Vancouver Opera Company. After his rendering of "Mephisto-
pheles" in Faust there were no dry eyes in
the house.
Beverley Cayley is now a surveyor and
author. His best works are those in which
he describes his adventures "in the bush."
He and Chatwin have occupied the enviable position of being regarded as heroes
since a certain class meeting in their Senior
Lincoln Marshall is a fugitive from
justice,  being wanted  in connection with
the manufacture of bombs for the Nihilists.
He is believed to be the inventor of trini-
trojunkamarshallite, the most powerful explosive known (ask our photographer).
Gordon Castleman has completely disappeared.
Those who knew Mr. Best in University will not be surprised to hear that he
has become a member of parliament and
is the official "thorn-in-the-side" of whoever happens to be speaking on the floor of
the house.
Pat Robertson is editor of "Canadian
Fashion Fancies," our most popular fashion
magazine, the circulation of which has been
so greatly increased by the picture of its
editor, incorporated in its cover design.
Last night the reporter visited A. C.
Broatch's dancing academy and was grant
ed a short interview with the successor of
Vernon Castle. Mr. Broatch has instituted what is known as the Reform Dance,
which prohibits the "ditching" of dances.
He obtained a passing glimpse of Mr.
Hurst, who was being ejected under the
new rule. As he left he had great difficulty in escaping being apprehended by
Mr. R. H. Mcintosh, the new dog catcher.
Since Mr. Mcintosh bought his Ford the
city pound has been replaced by an attractive dog cemetery.
On a recent trip to the dry belt we met
the Archbishop of Kamloops, who was
known as "Jimmy" Godsmark in ye good
old days of U. B. C.
The Reverend T. H. Wright is still
employed in shaping the destinies of his
fellow graduates.

ROFESSOR LEMUEL ROBERTSON! I wonder how many remember the first day that Arts '18
met together as a University class? The only bond
between us was our common newness, and a dim
wonder as to whether that grumpy-looking indiv-
ual would be any better or worse than our last high school
teacher, and whether he would keep us in much. Our ideas
have changed much since then. There was no "grumpi-
ness" in Professor Robertson, except when we displayed our
cribs a little too prominently. Again our memories of his
classes have been hallowed by the recollections of discussions
maintained by those who left the mimic battles of the Georgie
bees for the glorious fields of France. Do you remember those
little talks on socialism with Coughlan, or when Norman
Hughes came into class the day after a dance, in the hope that
he wouldn't be asked anything?   And Seidleman, too?
But we must pass on. How often in future years will
we wonder if that rosebush is still thriving up the North Arm
and if our last honorary president is still telling to clear-eyed
boys and girls the value of Webster's Dictionary as a foundation
for a library.
"Night after night,
He sat and pleased his eyes with books.
The thoughts of ancients in his shrill voice find utterance."
As this youth daily sallies forth from Central Park in quest of the pearls of
wisdom, ample time and opportunity are afforded by a tedious journey for profound
speculation on the eternal fitness of things.   We presume that his studious mien and
falsetto voice are the external evidences of enforced introspection.    The chronicler,
on consulting his manual of pyschological recipes, finds that a studious disposition
is soon dispelled by the frivolous antics of the twice-a-day artists, while a yell practice will quickly extinguish the patient's uncertain warble.
Lena is one of our dramatic stars, not only in the Players' Club, where she so
charmingly played "Merely Mary Ann," but in the lesser sphere of the Ladies' Lit.
We feel sure tbat her interpretation of her latest role would move her dramatic coach
to sincere enthusiasm. In her leisure moments, when she is not putting up autocratic
notices for the Women's Undergrad. she studies French fervently.
Dorothy's blush has been the subject of much controversy ■ during her college
career, but we wont talk about it, except to say it is still quite noticeable. We would
call her attention to the quotation, "Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low, an
excellent thing in woman." In spite of these little failings and her inherent shyness
she has made an excellent Class President this year.
Kathyrn believes in the doctrine of the Super-Senior and we who have not the
courage of our convictions along this line are glad to employ her when we want a
freshie's chair or lunch or anything. The freshies once heard what she said when the
head of the Athletic Department tipped her out of a chair on to the floor and they
do not wait to reason with her. She can do several other things passably well, including
singing in the glee club and playing in the orchestra, and sfe believes very strongly
in co-education, particularly in relation to geology hikes.        "*'
"Great thoughts, great feelings come to him like instincts, unaware."
His sober countenance so characteristic on all occasions, conceals a spirit that
yearns for "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Although extremely fond
of debating on philosophical vagaries with his argumentative associate Hurst, he also
finds mental relaxation in his devotion to the goddess of Terpsichore. While searching in vain through a microscope for elusive botanical fragments, he is often heard to
inquire absent-mindedly of his partner, "Say, fella, where the deuce are these miserable specks ? '
"You may bank on it, there is no philosophy like Bluff."
"Cas" is one of those unobtrusive fellows who pronounces with characteristic
calmness the suggestive epithet "bunk," which adequately expresses his hearty disapproval of learned but apparently boring lectures. Apart from his stoical attitude
toward immediate and present worries, he partakes of an intuitive optimism that
Seniors always pass. We presume that this argument accounts for his presence at
the Orpheum with his fellow-optimist Chatwin.
"A most shrewd, observing, quietly discerning man."
"Mordax Cynicus," as this name implies, is one of our most caustic critics who
finds his spare time amply employed in keeping our Students' Council in its path of
duty. As collector of humorous titbits for the college press he must indeed cultivate
an undue capacity for jokes. After reading the hysterical contributions, so generously
but thoughtlessly donated by well-meaning punsters, he must needs "discern the
point where no point lies." As our class treasurer he finds that most of our assets
are non-liquid, especially when the call for funds is most urgent.
"Multum in parvo."
Since our palmy Freshman days four years ago, Alf. Chatwin and Castleman
have been co-conspirators in eluding their arch-enemy, hard work. However, when
Alf. was inveigled by a merciless calendar into taking bacteriology, he contracted to
repay with interest the delightful hours spent with the lords and ladies of syncopation.
Forty-two NORMA CLARK.
Norma is the social butterfly of the class, and judging from appearances has had
a perfectly lovely time this session. Of course a certain number of lectures have to be
attended, but then the company makes such a difference. Even geology is entertaining,
although one (we should say two) cannot occupy a box and geological etiquette does
not permit of white carnations.
Bonnie's job as President of Athletics suits her perfectly. When she makes up
her mind regarding anything her classmates do not argue with her except at a distance.
Safety first! She is a member of the Latin Syndicate, and her original translations of
Seneca as heard by the frequenters of the Common Room would make her Professor's
hair rise in horror.
Norah is our prodigy, for she has at various times in her career been Class President, Head pf Athletics and President of the Alma Mater, and is now our permanent
Class President.    But you would never know it to look at her.    She has the gentle,
firm disposit
things she is
On which enables her to get her own way in everything.
basketball, d inces aesthetically and picks strawberries all with equal zeal.
She'  plays
The onlv
not keen about are nine o'clock lectures and joint committee meetings.
"Penn" stipulated that she was not to be called a "dear girl," so we wont. We
never thought! so anyway. She is a very busy individual between her- position as President of the Musical Club and writing letters to the Front. She probably won't like
that remark, either, but it is true. We forgot to mention that tf takes some time to
read the letteis she receives in answer. ^T.
Forty-three RUTH  FULTON.
Ruth's class mates still remember with glee a sermon on winking which she drew
down on her unlucky head in our freshman year. Her companions in the chemistry
lab. find her a source of infinite entertainment whether she be risking apoplexy by
blowing through a tube or waiting on the other side of the door for her experiment to
blow up. However no one bears her any malice and we have signified our approval
by electing her permanent class secretary.
"A  little philosophy  inclineth  mans  mind  to  atheism,  but depth   in
philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion."
The Y.M.C.A. has indeed been fortunate this year in having such an industrious and energetic president. His earnest and sincere personality never fails to
make a lasting impression on the minds of those with whom he comes in contact.
Although much of his time is devoted to the elucidation of theological doctrines and
Elysian mysteries, he by no means owes his allegiance to Latimer Hall.
Iona is one of the gentler souls in the class and her outstanding characteristic is
an utter abhorrence of noise. Witness her performance in the Chinese orchestra or
her behaviour any day in the Common Room! Her other peculiarity is ah ardent love
for Science, which has been rrlost noticeable from the days of Freshman Physics Lab.
to her final year, when she undertook Biology and made a specialty of cytoplasm.
"Oh!    I hate you!"
Isobel, in her official capacity as President of the Y. W. C. A., has to be a "nice
girl," but in her ordinary life she assiduously develops an argumentative nature. She
is remarkably efficient and has a diabolical gift for taking high marks. Her favorite
and daily dissipation is demolishing hot chocolate and chocolate eclaires and chocolate
bars and—chocolate.
Grace is Mary's boon companion. She shares most of her virtues but is rather
more blasee. She has a decided histrionic ability and can attempt varied roles ranging
from tearful old maiden aunts to "Props" in a Shavian super-production. Public
opinion decrees that the latter part is more in type. In her official capacity she is
President of the Players' Club.
"Let not the mystic with his verses pleasing,
Turn back the foundations of our reasoning."
"Mac" is an ardent exponent of students' rights, and as such, this buccaneer
bemoans the obsequiousness with which his fellow-students yield to the mere whims
of the faculty. As President of the Men's Lit. he feels the grave responsibilities
entailed in fostering the Art of Demosthenes. Any man who can prove that philosophy
is the quintessence of pure balderdash must be successful in debating circles. The
presidency of the Men's Basketball calls for still more promoting ability, while his
rational critical prowess is exemplified under the pseudonym of "Sartor Malignus."
"I'll speak to it, though hell itself should gape,
And bid me hold my peace."
After enlisting in the Royal Flying Corps Jackson departed for Toronto.   While
with us he was Vice-President of the Literary Department and Vice-President of our
year.    His extreme love of argument provided an excellent diversion during wearisome lectures.
One of the leading articles in Mary's religion is that her shoes and stockings
should not match—another that a regular weekly attendance at the Orpheum is a
prime necessity in a college career. Her specialties are chickenpox, helping Mr. Barnes
lecture in History and other equally childish amusements. Further we might add that
the society of the ladies does not constitute her favorite diversion. In other respects
she is almost normal. *;
"Youth at the prow and pleasure at the helm."
"My legs can keep no pace with my desire."
"Junk," the livewire of Arts '18, is one of our most indefatigable "speed artists."
His powers of hypnotism, so necessary to a managing editor of this publication, are
most in evidence when he diplomatically extracts valuable signatures from demurring
Freshies who harken not to the insistent plea for accelerated circulation. He joins
our happy throng on festive occasions when an atmosphere of "song and dance"
spurs on the revellers to higher flights of ecstasy.
Viva's interpretation of the office of President of the Women's Undergraduate
Society is an entirely unique one. She feels privileged to rebuke anyone at all who
disturbs the sacred quiet of the common room. She even forces dignified members of
her Executive to pick up the Freshies' lunch papers. However, as a class, we forgive
her. We have basked in her reflected glory for four years and are proud to claim as
our "the most finished actress in the Players' Club." Besides out of her official
capacity she is one of the nicest of us and that is saying a lot.
Stella has succeeded in directing the affairs of the Literary Department almost
as well as she directed the "pram" across the stage in "Alice-Sit-by-the-Fire." Her
capacity for acting is illustrated by the ease with which she disguised her age until
the night of the play. Stella is" very, very nice to some people, sometimes, though
occasionally quite cutting.
"Open  thy  silent lips,  sweet  instrument,  and
Make dull midnight merry with a song."
"Lefty," after spending several years under the sobering influence of voluminous
Latin sages, still emerges a confirmed epicurean.    During his four years sojourn at
U. B. C, this budding Cicero has been able to expend his surplus energy in nocturnal
jollifications.    His bland smile and benevolent briar will ever remains indelible in
the annals of Arts '18.
"An equal mixture of good humor and melancholy."
Although one of the most unassuming members of our "select and learned
coterie of Arts '18," his analytical prowess will solve the most recalcitrant chemical
combination. His jovial countenance, the outward expression of an innate spirit of
good-fellowship, is a source of pleasure to those who know him and an object of
envy to those who have not his acquaintance.
Agnes is two people. In ordinary life she is quiet and retiring (especially about
debates). On the stage she is always noisy, whether she is playing the part of a
chorus lady, a forlorn lover, or a roaring lion. This year she has officiated on the
Players Club Executive and collected our hard earned money. Otherwise she is a
very inoffensive member of the class.
Irene's outstanding characteristics are an ability to obtain first class marks with
no effort,—and an almost unlimited capacity for cream puffs. She is a member of the
Latin Syndicate and checks the wild flights of fancy of the rest by occasionally quoting
from the back of the book. She is equally devoted to Bacteriology, Botany and Hoy's
"On with the dance/   Let joy be unconfined;
No sleep till morn, when youth and pleasure meet."
"Pat's" versatility would discourage the most enthusiastic scribe. As president
of the Arts Men, Morals and Magazines, he experiences considerable difficulty in
impressing his "official" code of ethics on unbelieving Freshmen. Besides his duties
as vice-president of the Student's Council since Christmas, "Pat" has also to endure
the worries of chief notice-poster and analyst of the Chemistry Society. In spite of
these multifarious demands on his attention his "carpe jjjeffl" philosophy is irrepressible.    He is famous as a confirmed fusser and front-row Orpheumite.
Myrtle is the only really truly ladylike girl in the class. The reason for this
is that she has not been long enough with us to pick up our bad habits. She has a
peculiar passion for things scientific, even to the dissection of a dogfish which has.seen
better days.
Hazel has acted as the pillar of the Ladies' Literary Society this year—in other
words as its President. Her hitherto latent dramatic talent was revealed at one of the
meetings of the said society. We commend particularly her facial expression. Hazel
is one of those annoying people without any particular vice, so we can only say nice
things about her.
"A mind not to be changed by time or place."
Frank was one of the most popular men in the College. A man of many interests
he was the founder and first President of the Chemistry Club, a member of the orchestra and as a climax he undertook the "arduous" duties of the President of the Arts
Men.    Shortly before Christmas he enlisted in the artillery and is now in England.
"On their own merits modest men are dumb."
" 'Ed,' before enlisting along with Frank Emmons, was treasurer of the Students'
Council. Ever since joining Arts '18 last year he has taken an enthusiastic interest
in all our student activities. Rumours have reached us that 'Ed' is seriously figuring
'how two can live cheaper than one.' "
Forty-eight .A. H. MILLER.
"Then he will talk, ye gods!   How he will talk."
A former member of Arts '17 and a returned soldier.    He is noted for his endless yarns and his taste for Latin.    It was the intention to reserve this page for the
Theologs, but on the plea that Miller is the son of a minister he was given a place in
the sun.    Special reference is made to him in the Military Columns.
Since Best left the ranks of Arts '17 two years ago he has evolved into a fighting
theological benedict. He has red hair, a passion for the front row at the Orpheum
and carefully camouflages the fact that he is. a Theolog whenever possible. We must
be careful what we say about him here, as we understand that he has threatened the
life of the Military Editor because of some indiscreet remark about him in the
military pages.
It would be unjust to speak of Mr. Wright as a "Theolog," for he has long
since passed that embryonic stage in the development of a minister of the Gospel. He
has spent the last two years with us, and although his college course began at
Queen's, he will be a graduate of U. B. C. Mr. Wright, in addition to attending
classes within these sacred precints, is the pastor of the Wilson Heights Methodist
Church. When in Prof. Wood's class he indulges in a discussion of the vital questions
of "equal suffrage" and "woman's place in the home."
Forty-nine (Haralmc pansy fRuniiciy
By the death of Miss Munday not only
our University but all Canada suffered a
heavy loss, for her literary talent was such
as would have won for her a prominent
position in our intellectual circles. Depth
of thought, a sense of true values, and
versatility, were characteristic of her work,
and particularly of that part of it which
appeared in the student publications.
Of what she did we need not speak, for
it is written in the annals of our Alma
Mater. Keenly interested in her studies
she, nevertheless, gave generously of her
time and energy to student activities; too
generously it may be, for the strain was too
great for her endurance.
Of what she was it is difficult to speak
adequately; words are too cold. Those who
knew her will not soon forget her indomitable courage, her keen perception, her unflinching honesty and her whimsical humor,
and few of her fellow-students could fail
to be inspired by her ardor.
There was no one in the University who
was not profoundly shocked at the death of
Dorothea Manson, in May of last year.
In one sense memories are futile and
comfortless, yet we dherish those we have
of Dorothea. We have seen her studious
and to some purpose, as her examination
results show. She was a faithful worker
with the Y. W. C. A. in her last year and
was also actively interested in athletics,
being a member of the Grass Hockey
A well-balanced character is always interesting, and   when   to   this   is added a
sweet disposition, frequent flashes of drol-.
lery and unfailing good humor, it is not
hard to understand why Dorothea Manson
endeared herself to all of us in the three
years we knew her and why we miss her
so deeply in this our last year at the

ADIES and gentlemen, let me
introduce to you the President
of the Class, Mr. Murphy,
who is a man of distinction, as
anyone can see by looking at
! see that youth rushing
round with his hair on end,
That's Mr. Shaw, editor of the "Annual."
You can't say nothing nasty about
him, 'cause he'd squash it. Let me
present another celebrity, Mr. Sutcliffe,
the odd-job man around college, whose
name is all over the notice board. Miss
McKay, too, must be mentioned somewhere near the beginning, she's editor of
the "Ubicee," and some editor! Mr. McLellan is also a very important member of
our class; Micky comes home to us covered
with glory, and with the smoke of the
battlefield still lingering about him. The
rest of us are of no importance whatsoever,
except, to ourselves, and therefore, we will
follow in alphabetical order.
Miss Archibald is too nice a little girl
to be taking that weird thing called calculus. Miss Ashwell: "I pay my debts, believe and say my prayers." Mrs. Baxter:  "An equal  mixture of good humour
and sensible soft melancholy." Miss
Browne: "Proud of all the Irish blood
that's in me!" Miss Bain was one of the
official college coffee-makers before the
days of food conservation. Miss Barclay
is one of the select few of the class, who
really work. Although any office in tbe college would be open to Miss Bottger, this
capable and loveable maiden prefers to
devote her time to the study of music and
domestic affairs. Miss Boyd has sampled
every class in the college, but, of course,
she considers this the best. Miss Cameron
is a "sharp little feller, with a will of 'er
own." Miss Costley: " 'E's little, but 'e's
wise." Miss Dalton: "So fair a maid yet
with so morbid a passion for a dead language." Miss Gill is to all appearances a
sober maid, nevertheless she's prone to
"laughter" at most unseasonable moments.
Miss Grant uses the Glee Club to work
off the latent energies hidden beneath so
quiet a surface. Miss Gintzburger: "In
■duty firm, composed, resigned." Miss
Gross: "She's a woman, therefore may be
wooed." Miss Highmoor: "She is herself of best things, the collection." Miss
Houston: " 'Twas kin' o' kingdom come
to look on such a blessed cretur!"    Miss
Howard has strange places in her brain
crammed with all sorts of knowledge. Miss
Hunter: "Too busy with the crowded hour
to fear to live or die." Miss Kelman:
"Contented wi' little and cantie wi' mair!"
Miss Kerr puts the ball into the basket
with the greatest of ease. Miss Ketcheson:
"It comes! It comes! Oh, rest is sweet!"
Miss Mann is another of those persons
with a third year mathematical type of
mind. Miss Marwick: "Good things usually come in small bundles, but this is the
exception to the rule." Miss Maynard is
an energetic Red Cross worker, we can't
have too much of this good thing. Miss
McLean is a mercenary creature, who is
always looking for '-"quarters." Miss
Peck: "They say the good die young, be
careful Margery!" Miss Rollston carries
on such an extensive business correspondence that she has no time for class parties. Miss Swencisky: "And with her
list, she'd rule the world." Miss Thomas
is one of the most earnest workers around
college. Miss Wallace: "Long of limb
and a glassy stare." Miss Wesbrook, does
she know all about the Faculty meetings?
Miss Wolfe, our "^ster Susie," is a wise
,'un for 'er size.        ■»■
Fifty-four W.G MS LCNtf AN
Fifty-five Mr. Agabob is a theolog, but otherwise a real good sport. Mr. Bell: "Barring that natural expression of villainy,
which we all have, the man looks honest
enough." Mr. Brown: "The fairest flower
that ever grew beside a cottage door."
Mr. Dunlop finds no amusement but in his
own existence.   Mr. Emmons is a fine type
of a young mountain goat. Mr. Fraser:
"It is a pretty youth, not very pretty, but
sure he's proud." Mr. Hosang is one of
the star debaters of the college. Mr.
Mahrer is a newcomer, who "tickles the
ivories" with considerable skill. Mr.
Shimizu is another debater and a devoted
student    of    philosophy.      Mr.    Vollum:
"Cans't thou   love   me, lady?     I've not
learned to woo!"
And now we will leave this little band
of happy Juniors with one final bit of
"Take this in good part whoever thou be,
And wish me no worse than I wish unto
Night in the Northern Monks
Three of us there were, and two beheld
The radiant glory of the dying sun
In deep vermilion swathed.    One cried '"Tis done
And blackest night will reign."    Two slow tears welled.
But I cried No!   For sweet dawn's clearest light
Suffusing evening's flush will wax and cheer
(Though feet do stumble in the darkness drear)
And give us hope to pass the toilsome night.
But one there was who did not see as we
And yet he had a clearer view than both.
"It is a vision of eternity,"

To leave.    "And all must cross the crimson tide

Roy Davis. "My salad days, when I
am green in judgment." So Davis excuses the fact that he took Math. II.
Edwin Day. Ed has a sister, red cheeks,
a cherub smile and a love for Chemistry.
Joe dePencier. If we saw him oftener
we would appreciate him more. Never
discovered in U.B.C. except at lecture
periods occasionally and drill.
Earle Foerster. Came from Manitoba,
where he learned to skate. But where
did he learn to play the piano?
Gerald Harvey. Once in a while he
drops into Logic lectures and brightens up
the class with his brilliant hair.
J. Hokkyo. The class doubter, who
confounds every Professor with the mystic
inarticulation of the bewildering questions
which emanate from the dark recesses of
his bristling moustache.
E. T. James. A blue nose in English,
but since the hockey team was disbanded
'"Taddy" is conspicuous by his absence at
all college functions.
Gordon James. Essays are the bane of
his life. One of the heroes who takes
second year Maths.   "Alas, poor youth."
Fred Law. Freddie's college spirit has
blossomed forth this year. He is an actor

George MacKinnon. Our Literary representative, takes a good picture. Likes to
work, but not in public. Capable, popular
and clever.
George Martin. Too long and lanky to
take drill; a basketball player of some
E. M. McKechnie. Doc's favorite subjects are Logic, English and women (in
the abstract).
H. S. Murray. This wee man is noted
for his pugnacious disposition. Never
known to miss an argument. Keeps English III awake—sometimes.
Allan Peebles, One of the pillars of the

Specialties: Tin whistle, singing, measles,
basketball, noise, "Caesar's ghost!"
Bernard Pratt. "They always talk who
never think." Although Bernard is always talking he sometimes thinks, though
not in English III.
Donald Siddons. A very youthful and
childish young man, who tries to sing bass
while eating his lunch at Glee Club practices.
C. D. Smith. The well-known anarchist socialist. Believes in nothing, argues
anything, opposes everything. Ambition—
to lecture to a class of professors.
Alfred Swencisky. A. H. J. also from
New Westminster. An accomplished
artist with the pencil, and asking questions in Economics.
John Weld, another bean-pole, with a
mezzo-soprano voice and a disturber of the
peace in No. 4 Platoon.

Sixty-one freshettes
PRING has come; the trees are
budding; the Freshettes are
waking up. They begin to
realize that life is not one
round of studies and that exams
are not so very important after all. Even
Dorothy Blakey, queen of intellects, seems
"Just like other girls," and indulges in
typically girlish frivolities. Lorna Roberts,
our capable President, seems even more
energetic with the advent of spring, and
other office-holding ladies, such as Jessie
Lett, Evelyn Wright, Mary Munroe or
Agnes Healy, follow their President's
The Players' Club are deep in the throes
of rehearsals for "Alice-Sit-by-the-.Fire,"
judging from the rapt expressions on
the faces of Emmy Millege, Irene Cowan
and others. With such able people as Ethel
Livingston, Nancy Fort, Flora Dougan or
Daisy Sewell, to help manage the business
end of the production, we feel its success
is assured.
Athletics are even more popular this
half of the year and ardent hockey players,
among them Beatrice Abel, Annie Smith,
Dorothy Lyne, Jessie Granger, Dorothy
Brenchley,   Dorothy   Hopper   and   Nellie
Falconer may be seen at all times dashing
off, armed with their sticks, to practise at
Bridge Street.
Hazel Thomson, Gwynette Lewis and
Lila Coates are three of our basketball
The scholastic element in our class is
very strong. Marion Lawrence and Florence Cowling excel in Trigonometry; Violet Dunbar in Chemistry, and Patricia
Cowan in Composition. Marjorie Sing,
Nina Munn and Sadie Edwards seem to
have known Cicero in a previous existence.
History is as the salt of life to Gladys
Cale, Margaret Clarke and Kathleen
Parker, and the ease with which Mabel
Simmonds, Nellie Robson and Evelina
Southerl.and read French would put a
Parisian to shame! Then there are those
of us who are proficient in every branch
of study, among these are Ida Howard,
Victoria Herman, Gwen Suttie, Ella
Crozier, Bessie Cox and last, but not least,
the heavenly twins, Bessie and Grace Kil-
lip, who do not even know themselves
In social affairs Gwen Kemp, Lottie
Taylor  and   Maud   Rowan   come   to   the
fore. At the W. U. S. masquerade, who
would know Marguerite Harvey, Beatrice
Lehman or Marjorie Mutrie for the sedate
ladies of the lecture hours? The Freshettes need not read "Vogue" so assiduously
in the Common Room while yet they have
Rona Hatt and Olive Anderson, of the
immaculate coiffure, in their midst, to exhibit style and taste in clothes. Moreover
we have Dorothy Adams, who has set the
fashion of tortoise-shell rims!
When the weather is inclement we
take off our hats to certain staunch
Freshettes who are determined to brave
the elements and superstition by living in the Royal City. Every morning sees Evereida Wilson, Vera Bo-
well, Jean Whiteside, Anita McDonald
and Isobel Turnbull arriving on time at
U. B. C, cheerful and smiling after their
long interurban journey. Goodness only
knows what time they arise these bleak
mornings! Sun or rain, Jeanie Kier and
Bonnie Gill have to travel by land and sea,
o'er hill and dale, before they reach the
halls of learning, for they hail from North
Vancouver. Jean Mackenzie, Rachel Henderson and Minerva *Page acknowledge
Point Grey as their "home.   Viva Eckert is
Sixty-two :n    .4'
Sixty-three a native of Chilliwack, B. C, and is glad
that she came to the University for one
reason only—that she escaped the floods.
Marjorie Bulman, Vivian Jones and Enid
McKee have come out into the cold
academic world from homes in Kelowna,
Hope and Salmon Arm. Myrtle Kilpat-
rick represents the Capital City in Freshette circles. All of which goes to show
that higher education is not monopolized
by Vancouver alone.
There are many of us whose looks belie
our characters, and mention must be made
of the more flagrant cases. Minta Ebert,
Audrey Moe and Nora Keatly to all out- ■
ward appearances are gentle and mild little girls, but in reality they are not. They
have possibilities of astonishing the world
by their fearlessness and decision.
In this same category are Nellie Cart-
wright, Ruth Lyness and Gertrude Kion,
of Titian tresses.    The sunny dispositions
of Margaret Macdonald, Julia Greenwood
and the Wilson sisters, Grace and Freda,
cheer us in the dark hours of exams,
and the brilliant smiles of Lucy Hudson,
Helen Mortimer and Irene McAfee are as
sunshine in the class, opposed to the solemn
aspect of life taken by Winnefred Hamson,
Mary Dunlop or Dulcie Robinson.
The habit of forming very intimate
friendships, universally considered an essential of college life, is not lacking at
U. B. C. Dorothy Carruthers, Muriel
■Reid and Belle Vanderburgh are reported
to be as thick as thieves. One never sees
Margaret Gilley without looking around
for Ruth Hetherington and Lillie Hobson
and Nina Mathers are inseparable. Another fervent friendship is that between
Muriel Munroe and Jessie MacBeth. Hat-
tie McArthur is a friend to all the world,
seemingly having no preference among the
The old saying that good things come
in small parcels is illustrated in Sylvia
Goldstein and Clara LeMessurier, two
young ladies of indifferent stature but decided capabilities. Dorothy Gilroy and
Miss Bertrand come to us from Normal,
and show the mild pessimism and broad
knowledge of humanity always noticed in
students of that institution. We suggest
at the same time excusing ourselves for
making a bad pun, that Kathleen Harper
join the Orchestra, that Marion Sauder
learn the art of tinsmithing, and that
Phyllis Partridge refrain from making herself conspicuous during the shooting season!
Ruth Layton from Nova Scotia is Lem-
mie's favorite pupil. Ruth Harrison, Bessie Kerr and Lily Johnson look quiet and
inoffensive, but wbo knows what hidden
genius may underlie their graceful modesty? Vera James and Kathleen Mcintosh evidently think that college life is
real, it is earnest.    Perhaps they are right!

ERTAINLY never a lack of
| "quantity," but at times a want
of certain essentials of good
"quality" has characterized the
men of Arts '21. Professor
Wood once declared that we possess a
sense of humor at times "cruelly inhuman" ;
while Professor Henry has been known to
lament our deficiency in certain fine qualities which should be the particular possession of a college student—and all this is
apart from our proverbial "greenness."
Life would have been almost joyless had
not our Mtah. Professor cheered us by
complimenting us on our ability as mathematicians.
Arts '21 has been exceptionally fortunate in having for its class officers men of
personal ability and leadership. Our
President, Arnold Webster, has proved
himself worthy of our confidence, and in
addition has brought credit to the year by
winning the Silver Medal in the Oratorical Contest.
W. F. Rose has made an able and popular Vice-President, and will ever be remembered by his love for "Aurora."
A. F. Roberts, as Secretary-Treasurer,
has performed his duties in a praiseworthy
manner.   His chief trouble in life has been
to collect "two-bit" contributions to pay
for our class party.
F. R. Thurston, as Literary Representative, has taken deep interest in our class
debates. Gordon and Etter have acted as
a Debating Committee, and Fisher, Sollo-
way and Buscombe as an Athletic Committee.
Apart from officialdom there are many
Freshmen of genuine ability. Argue,
though quite unassuming, gives promise
of becoming the Caruso of the Glee
Club. Barclay is one of the U. B. C.
Famous Players, and on very special occasions "generalissimo" on the parade
ground. Cribb has often quoted Scripture for the edification of the Latin class
and also has proven himself to be a successful debater. We are justly proud of
Crickmay, the Gold Medalist in Oratory.
Evans made a complete conquest of tbe
local press by his acting in the Christmas
plays, not to mention his military career.
Fink has often delighted college audiences
with his charming violin selections. For
the personification of youthful qualities
we refer you to Fournier. Grimmet nearly
extinguished himself as the trumpeter in
the Toy Symphony. Goranson and McDougall are two quiet youths, quite typical of New Westminster! Hall and McNaughton  were  among  the  musicians   in
Prof. Russell's orchestra, McCallum
gallantly assisted the fair Freshettes in
preparing the refreshments for the class
party. Mitchell, a general favorite, is a
noted tenor robusto of the Glee Club.
Peardon and Peck championed our cause
in the Inter-Class Debate (better luck next
time!) Lazenby, Wienrobe and Wilks
have frequently been forced to swallow
bitter medicine because of their tender
The men of the first year have taken
a deep interest in the C. O. T. C, and are
well represented among the N. C. O.'s
by Sergt. Hood, Corp. Evans and L.-Corp.
Up to the present our athletic activities
have been largely confined to basketball.
Two teams were organized with the following line-up: First team—Gordon,
Saunders, Taylor, Fisher and Mathers;
second team—Bayes, Sager, Peck, Wein-
robe and McLean. These players on several occasions met in competition with
other local teams and successfully upheld
the traditions of U. B. C.
Space prevents further individual mention, but we feel sure, that many of the
class possess great*"latent abilities which
we hope will become manifest during their
Sophomore year.

Alas how was it. that our predecessors omitted to make any
mention of a group of some of the most important men around
the University!    For without their eternal labor we would be
'struggling to absorb knowledge in class-rooms as musty as the
lectures themselves.
Dean reigns supreme in the Arts Building from 4.00 p.m.
till midnight. In addition to preparing the floors for the dainty
■feet of the Freshettes, he is our nightwatchman, and makes
sure that no student comes up here at night to work, for he
was born in England and knows that "most lovely night" was
not made for study.
W. Tansley is perhaps the most erratic gentleman around
college (and that is saying something). He may often be heard
waxing enthusiastic over some extract from the classics, or seen
brush in hand, laying up a libel suit for himself at some future
date. His picture shows him at one of his innumerable tasks
—removing some of the corruption from the Men's Common
Edward Chell and his pipe occupy a little dungeon in the
Biology Building in which he keeps a goodly supply of towels
(keeps is hardly the word) which the Chemistry and Biology
.students find very convenient indeed. He is shown here repairing one of the results of an Arts-Science snowball fight.
John Trent. It is approaching sacrilege for a mere Arts
man to write up this distinguished denizen of the Science
Building. "Hiram" is noted chiefly for holding informal
receptions in the furnace room and ejecting all and sundry from
the building promptly at five o'clock. His good nature and
willingness are even appreciated by the Science men themselves.
Chas. Dyke completes our list. He is»of nocturnal habits,
and your only chance to see him is if she has skipped the last
dance and you have wandered disconsolate into the hall.

•flCIENCE '19 is like Ireland-
its population has been steadily
decreasing, till now it has only
that number which comprises
ideal company. Fate has shown
more playful antics by placing the two
remaining members of the class as far
apart in the social sphere as east is from
R. J. Bullard—"Russ," holds most of
the offices of this class, as well as being
President of the Science Men's Undergraduate Society. Let it be said that, unlike the
rest of his class, he is not a mystery. He
does everything that a self-respecting man
ought to do, plays poker, Rugby, baseball
and other things common to all good Science men. But although possessed of
many good qualities, he shows one bad
trait—he sometimes studies. Nevertheless,
we think a lot of Bullard and will miss
his cheery grin next year.
Horace Steadman forms, with his counterpart of a later generation an admirable
"Dignity and Impudence" picture. He, of
course, being the dignity part of it. Horace shines gloriously in one respect,
. namely, studying. He delights in making
or trying to make, perpetual motion machines, odorless chlorine or liquid sulphur
dioxide. It is a pity he does not try to
make something useful, a hat, for example.
(Horace G. has spent many weary hours
drawin' for the Annual.—Ed.)
We missed "Billy" at the beginning of
this year. He was a most esteemed and
respected member of Science '19, and his
tragic death this summer was deeply regretted by everyone who knew him. He
was working on a geological survey, and
while crossing the Kootenay River on a
raft the swift current carried him and his
companion away out of reach of help.
Gray was an ardent mountain climber,
and last year was*President of the University Mountaineering Club.

AY down at the northwest
corner of the block occupied by
the University there is a swell
boarding house, where a crowd
of boarders of varying characteristics consume and sometimes digest, five
or six intellectual meals per day. The
men, being Science men, eat scientifically,
they throw around the plates, sometimes the
food, especially when there are onions (this
will bring back fragment memories of last
year), rattle their knives, put their feet on
the table and generally have so much to talk
about, so many jokes to repeat, so much
fighting to do between themselves, that
they have little time for eating. Another
chef, who is an electric cooking expert, suggested one day, when the men were a little
turbulent, that they come back to static
equilibrium. Nevertheless, when you
judge them by the things that really count,
you will find them a genuine and open-
hearted crowd, so therefore compose yourselves, gentle readers, while these inmates
are paraded, one by one, before you.
The star boarder is, of course, Miss
M. L. Healy, who unfortunately, does not
dine with us very frequently. You may
be sure that when "Maggie" is there, the
food is even better than usual and the
others all exhibit the most perfect table
manners. Howard James (our Class
President), one of the notables, possesses
a healthy appetite and a hearty digestion.
Stewart Glen, generally late for breakfast,
keeps what he has to say to himself. It
is rumoured that he is very accomplished,
but he seldom displays his talent. Don
McQueen resembles an owl, but not in
every respect, for example, in the wisdom
part. At any rate he sleeps all day and
hoots all night, that is to say, he is learning to sing. With him you will find
Jack Mcdonald (oh, pardon me, Mac-
Donald) who arranges smokers, but
never says anything when he mashes his
finger with a hammer. The third of this
trio, Gregg Thomson, possesses an excellent horse-laugh, but has a poor appetite
and misses many meals. W. Rebbeck is a
bright youth, but disturbs the cook by
waking up at frequent intervals and yell
ing "What's the time?" or "Oh, I'm
tired!" The only man who never gets
enough to eat, intellectually and otherwise, is Harry Andrews. He also spends a
lot of time feeding the star boarder.
Aylard is our silent cynic "Gwash!"
R. Hardie, figuratively speaking, always
has his best clothes on. Ashwell seems to
be moping, because when times were better, he lived in a bigger boarding house,
but it is doubtful if he ever experienced
such good cooking before. Wallace smiles
always, although he dislikes the food and
suffers from indigestion. Boomer bolts
his meals and finishes before the others are
half-way through. He will certainly ruin
his digestion. Don Morrison, "Pinky,"
persists in slyly disclaming all knowledge
of the fair sex. He is still convalescing
from the effects of last year. McKechnie
is a confirmed sceptic and very matter-of-
fact, but his work as a barmaid was highly
commendable. He also braves the wind,
rain, snow, sleet, hail of Vancouver, attired
only in summer habits. Yonemoto
"Singy," our merry-eyed Oriental, proclaims himself as an authority upon all
subjects. He declares that the meals are
all overcooked. Another from the land of
chrysanthemums is Tamenaga—"Tammy,"
the chief dishwasher* and a non-union
laborer. _.
Seventy-six Seventy-seven Stiettte fZ\
E have in our class an unfailingly optimistic person, whose
chief aim in life is to be noisy,
if not musical. He calls himself William Parks; the staff
know him as Park; a certain Celestial demands his attention by raucously shouting,
"Pa! Pa!" and the rest of his unwilling
audience apply whatever pet names they
happen to think of at the moment. When
not giving an imitation of a donkey that
has run out of feed, he relates at length his
marvellous adventures. As an occasional
variation he will bring 9 units up from infinite distance and then by the interpolation
of Young's modulus for steel, prove the
rational integral function of X is equal to
zero. As human endurance is limited,
particularly that of a Science man who has
just sat down on a thumb-tack, Parks
receives once a day or so a few tokens of
our esteem, more or less gently tendered.
The cause of periodic thunder in the
Science building being thus explained, we
will proceed with the audience. Meekison,
the class president and chief bouncer, is
very handy at tossing stools around the
room.    He is called "Meek," but this is a
woeful misnomer. Cook was our vice-
president, but he joined the heavy artillery
last fall and has since left to employ his
talents in strafing the Hun. The secretary now and then collects money for class
pins and Orpheum parties, but felt the
first real call of duty when asked to write
Sergt. Anderson stars at basketball, and
twice a week is told by some member of
Platoon 4 how a boil on the neck, situated
just where the tunic rubs most, or a game
leg (?) makes drill for the day impossible.
Another military genius is McLellan, who
indulges in the costly recreation of destroying tracing cloth. It is an ironic fate that
causes Mr. Elliot to direct his remarks
upon the evil effects of cigarette smoking
against this innocent abstainer. "P. D. Q."
Kingham is our war veteran, whose favorite exclamation is, "I'll finish this drawing
if I have to stay till six." We marvelled
at his determination until Jane discovered
that these outbursts always occurred when
P. D. Q. had about two more lines to
draw. Thompson is an unoffending individual who has the unhappy habit of drawing down  the wrath of the  powers  that
be upon his own defenseless head. Even
our local Hawkshaw, John the janitor,
picks on him. Early last fall, Stedman
was saved the necessity of a visit to
.Moler's Barber College by being personally and artistically served by his affectionate classmates. According to Parks, who
peruses a volume of Ball's "Mathematical
Recreations," when not messing about with
liquid S02 or calculating Abel's Lemma.
Gill is a budding chemist who met his
r Waterloo when he picked up Waren's
Chinese Chemistry. We understand that
after a couple of hours he found the title
page, at the back, or what we call "the
back," of the book. "Specks" Melville, by
•shouting "Holy bald-headed" with a wave
amplitude P, can make Stedman jump 9
units at a distance r. We see a great
future ahead of Specks as a coal vendor.
We have heard that Chas. Anders, more
commonly called Chanders, writes P. P.
after his name. Now this may stand for
Purveyor of Prescriptions, but we would
suggest Propounder of Perplexities. And
last, but not least, is "General" Waun.
Aside from sundry attempts to engage the
elusive Parks in mortai combat, he leads a
peaceful existence. X".
Seventy-eight Seventy-nine HE Summer Surveying School,
in which the Applied Science
receives its field practice, began for Science '20 on August
27th, 1917. This year it was
decided to bestow our efforts on the
new University site at Point Grey, so
that a complete survey, however inaccurate, should be made of the grounds.
Preliminary instructions over, the first
problem facing us was the question of
getting there. Some found that after
travelling in five different cars and disbursing quite a number of tickets, that
they were still two miles from their destination, so they had to plod their weary
way over rough roads, up hill and down
dale. One of Henry Ford's early experimental vehicles succeeded, after a great
deal of effort, in conveying all the scientific
paraphernalia to a convenient spot. Transportation difficulties were solved to some
extent when the University car was pressed
into service. Unfortunately this was a five-
passenger car, so that only twelve could
ride in it at a time, the others having to
walk. Further still, Mr. Powell always
had a sore foot and Mr. Matheson the key
of the garage, so they both rode continuously. One bright youth suggested that if
only Mr. Matheson would walk we all
could ride.
Sunieyfttg at $mnt drey
We really got started on surveying after
electing four captains, whose chief duty it
was to watch the clock, so as to prevent
working overtime. We got out of sight
the first day by running a compass tra-'
verse, the technicalities of which are too
deep to explain here. Some of the surveyors amused themselves and annoyed
otbers by exciting the compass needle into
oscillation with an axe or a jack-knife.
.When such things happened Captain Reb-
beck rendered us awestruck by his marvellous command of language. Captain McQueen, who has a high outlook on the
world, seemed to have learned quite a lot
on the same subject during his trip up
The first day we worked along the seashore and ended up on a big rock. Next
morning we found the rock away out at
sea, nevertheless, everything came to those
who waited. On this survey an old canoe
was picked up so, as a result, considerable
hydrographic work (?) was done. Other
tbings discovered were a green apple orchard, also an orchard containing many
luscious plums, but not for very long.
A point of interest was a strong enclosure protected by barbed wire, containing a
large kennel, which on being disturbed
disgorged a huge boar with evil-looking
tusks.    At one  time  while  running con
tours it was necessary for the rodman to
enter his den, in order that a reading on
a collossal ruler might be made through an
instrument called the level. It is not
necessary to state that this reading was
not very accurate. It fell to our lady surveyor, Miss Healy, to enter the domicile of
an old sow and her numerous progeny. The
mistress of the house was quite interested
in our first lady engineer, but unhappily,
these feelings were not reciprocated and tbe
engineeress made short work of getting out
via the fence.
During our sojourn at Point Grey we
were treated to ideal practical conditions,
especially as to weather. .It rained and
kept on raining, indeed it rained so hard
on several occasions that one became almost clean. Real bush was there and real
trees had to be felled, but not with real
axes. Wallace, by the way, always liked
to use a good hard rock as a chopping
block. We worked from nine till five,
with an hour for lunch and all day Saturdays. We took down everything we
saw in little yellow books and now we are
trying by the skillful use of various methods of correction to produce a' map from
the notes—a map which will become of
historical value in sJje years to come when
stately university buildings grace the scene
of our survey.
Eighty Agrftulture
Eighty-one E are seven—sanguine scions, in
part at least, of the true Paradise stock—the sweetest things
that ever grew beside a college
door. We recall with complacency the Seven Golden Candlesticks and
Seven Sages and the Seven against Thebes
and the Seven Deadly Sins; and we believe

of such a large number of our most active members has had the effect of dampening the interest
taken in the affairs of the Men's Lit. Nevertheless
the society this year has had greater success than,
has been evident for some time. At the commencement of the
session the following officers took charge: Hon. President,
Dr. Boggs; President, M. E. Hurst; Vice-President, W. J.
Couper; Secretary, Gerald McClay; Class Representatives,
F. R. Thurston, G. E. MacKinnon, H. A. Dunlop, H. M.
Robertson. At the Christmas vacation Mr. McClay enlisted,
and his place was taken by Mr. H. D. Keenlyside. "Despite
the handicap under which the Executive has worked practically
all the plans originally made have beeen carried through.
The inter-class debates, as planned at the first meeting of
the year have been held according to schedule. The plan was
as follows: First year was to debate with Third; Second year
with Fourth; then the winners were to clash for the championship. The first contest, between the Freshmen and the Juniors,
resulted in a victory fof the former. The subject was that
hoary-headed relict of the time when Shem, Ham and Japheth
in the Ark, namely, "Resolved, that the environment has more
influence on character than heredity." Mr. Cribb and Mr.
Roberts for the Freshies, swamped the opposition offered by
Messrs. Shimizu-and McLellan in a deluge of words.
The second debate of this, series was held between Arts
'18 and Arts '20, the So^is getting the verdict. Arts '20 was
represented by McClay and Coates; Arts '18 by Frank Emmons
and Cayley. The subjdcfwas: "Resolved, that the Canadian
Government should assume control of the Canadian railways."
It is a noticeable fact that the two junior years in these debates
were victorious over the senior years, but in fairness" it must
be admitted that this was due probably to the fact that the
majority of .the upper classmen are serving their country.
The final was held on February 8th, when the Freshies
and Sophs broke lances against each other. The subject was
that chosen for the international debate, namely, "Resolved,
that at the close of the present war the nations of the world
shall establish an International Supreme Court to settle all
international disputes, and to be supported by an international
constabulary to enforce its decrees." After a strenuous hour of
arguing, the judges gave their decision in favor of the negative,
which had been supported by H. L. Keenlyside and W. J.
Couper of the Second year. First had their honor well upheld,
however, by Messrs. Peardon and Peck, who gave an excellent
exhibition of debating.
It appeared for a short time as if the oratorical contest
was going to fall through for lack of entries this year, but when
this was threatened eight men came forward to save us from
that disgrace. An elimination contest was thus made necessary,
as only five speakers could be heard on the night of the contest.
On January 21st the final contest was held in the auditorium before a large gathering of the students and their
friends. The judges were Dr. Archibald, Prof. Boving and
Prof. Wood, while President Hurst occupied the chair. The
speakers delivered their addresses in the following order:
H. L. Keenlyside, '*The Entente Cordiale"; Mr. Webster,
"The Call"; Mr. Wright, "Agriculture^aho' the War"; Mr.
Crickmay, "Punishment and Crime"; Mr. Couper, "Russia."
Eighty-six The interval of thirty-five minutes during which. the judges
were deliberating was enlivened by musical selections from
Messrs. Coates, Smith and Etter. The decision of the
judges, which was announced by Prof. Boving, gave the gold
bar for first place to Mr. Crickmay, and the silver bar to
Mr. Webster. Both the successful contestants were members
of the first year Arts class.
'For the coming year the Executive asks for a large measure of support and enthusiasm from the men students of the
University. A prerequisite to full success in any line of
endeavor is interest and backing. Without these no executive
can properly perform all the functions delegated to it. It is
suggested, therefore, that for the coming year all of the students
should make it a point of honor either to take part in the debating exercise Or give their support to those who do. In
this way, even with our depleted ranks, the Men's Literary
Society of our University will be able to hold a place second
to none.

|HIS year of the Women's Literary Society has been
one of unqualified success, and the executive, after
their strenuous endeavors to bring the best before
the women of the University, feel that the excellent
syllabus of 1917-18 should be headed "Eureka,"
The constitutional aims of the Society are to cultivate
an appreciation for the best in literature in its members, and to
train them in of public speaking.
The opening meeting was addressed by Mr. R. W-
Douglas of the Carnegie Library, who discussed the merits
of Kipling and his great knowledge of India; above all,
his interest in "Tommy Atkins" and his creation of the inimitable Mulvaney. The Honorary President, Mrs. D. Mcintosh,
then presented the Society with a handsome shield, which is to
go to the final victors in the interclass debates each successive
year. At the next meeting, an address of special interest was
given by Prof. Wood, on "Some Literary Shrines in America,"
in which he described the homes of the great literary men he
had visited, and gave interesting facts of their private lives.
No less interesting was Dr. Mullemeister's address on "Student
Life in Holland," in which she made clear the differences
between university life in Vancouver and that far-away land.
This address was followed by a reception for Miss Maclnnes.
Before the session is completed an address will be given by Dr.
H. Ashton, the excellence of which is guaranteed by the fact
that Dr. Ashton is giving it. The lectures given have all been
highly interesting and sufficient thanks cannot be given to our
professors and Mr. Douglas for so kindly giving us their time
and the benefits of their knowledge.

Eighty-eight Debating, which had almost threatened to disappear from
college life, has been renewed with remarkable success. The
first debate, "Resolved That International Disputes Should Be
Settled by an International Court of Arbitration," was
excellent. The affirmative, ably supported by Miss Monroe
and Miss Wright of the Freshman year, won a close victory
over Miss Smith and Miss Inrig of the Sophomores, for the
In the Senior-Junior debate, "Resolved, that there
should be a tax on bachelors," Miss Harvey and Miss Brad-
shaw supported the affirmative, and Miss Cameron and Miss
Howard, the negative. As the subject vitally concerned both
sexas, it was not thought advisable to hold a secret session
behind closed doors. . Accordingly, the men were invited, and
it was impossible to decide whether the majority were relieved
or disappointed when the decision was granted to the negative.
Although the subject was light, Mr. Elliott complimented the
speakers on the high literary standard they had attained.
Another debate followed in which Miss Bodie, with characteristic humor, proved in spite of Miss Gilley's able arguments
to the contrary, that there should be "Attacks on Bachelors."
The final debate will soon follow.
In order to correct in some measure the prevalent idea
that the Society is a mysterious cult belonging solely to a select
body known as "The Executive," two "year" entertainments
were instituted. That given by the Seniors and Juniors needs
no further mention than that the Players' Club have serious
rivals. The Senior rendering of Bernard Pshaw's play "How
he told an Untruth to her Espoused" created a profound
impression. Miss Henderson as "Props," Miss Coy as "Uproara
Rumpus," Miss Morrison as "Henery Popgun." and Miss
Monteith as "Teddy" were ably supported by their talented
understudies. The Junior presentation of recollections of U.
B. C, in 1950, was no less worthy of mention.   Who indeed
will ever forget the Arts Dance, with four girls to every boy,
or the Aesthetic Dancing Classes, or the impressive C. O. T. C,
or last but not least, "Sitting for One's Picture" at Gibson's
Studio? The entertainment to be provided by the Sophomores
and Freshettes promises to be no less attractive. The purpose
of these two meetings is to give all the women an aftive interest
in the Society, since they are all active members, and jto help
them realize that the success of the Society depends upon them;
and that it is "Of the women, for the women" and above all
"by the women."
While the Society is essentially literary, it forms an attractive medium to promote a certain amount of social intercourse
among the girls, for after all, the old truism that "All work
and no play makes Jack a dull boy" applies equally well to
With these facts in mind, a glance at the Syllabus and a
recollection of the large attendances at all the meetings, will
show how well the work has been done, and how successfully
carried out. In this connection a word of praise is due the
executive. Miss Hazel Wilband, the president, assures us that
it was never her privilege to work with such enthusiastic colleagues before. Miss Norma Clarke, vice-president, was an
efficient "second-in-command," while Miss Janet Gilley, the
hard-worked secretary, was a veritable right hand to the
Society. While Miss Madge Gill, treasurer, never saw any of
'the funds of the Society (according to the rules of our Student
government) yet she affirms she enjoyed the simple arithmetic
problems she achieved in her book.
The Women's Literary Society has striven to awaken in
its members a realization that the future existence of college
activities depends on them; for even in war time we must not
forget that we are the few, building for th» many to come after
us, and that on the firm foundations^jye have laid a greater
Literary Society will arise.

HE international debates have been instituted as a
preliminary to placing the University in* closer
touch with neighboring colleges and with the hope
that these relations will afterwards extend to the
realm of sports. In the first year of our existence, 1916, a debate with Washington was arranged, and
that University carried off all the honors. The following
year, however, the tables were completely turned. This year
the debate has been considerably extended and will be a triangular contest with the Universities of Washington and Oregon.
As the date fixed for the event is after this issue will have gone
to press, it is simply our duty to remark upon the capabilities
of our own team and leave the issue of the day to the Fates,
devoutly hoping that they may again be propitious.
The subject under discussion is, "Resolved, that at the
close of the present war there should be established an International Supreme Court to settle all international disputes and
to be supported by an international constabulary to enforce its
decrees." The affirmative is being supported by Messrs.
W. G. Sutcliffe, '19, and I. Hosang, '19, who will face Washington in the city; while Messrs. W. J. Couper, '20, and Mr.
A. Webster, '21, will have the difficult task of supporting the
negative at Eugene, Oregon. Messrs. Wright, '21, and
A. C. Broatch, '18, will act as assistants. Messrs. Webster
and Hosang are both medallists of previous oratorical contests,
while Mr. Sutcliffe was a member of one of the successful
teams of last year.
As we go to press we learn that the affirmative won at all
three colleges.

[HIS is the second year of the Musical Society's
existence, and we are pleased to report a considerable increase in membership—the students are
evidently realizing the benefit of such a society in
University life.
The Ladies' Glee Club, perhaps the most flourishing of
the subsidiary organizations, has some fifty members. Last
year some of the executive rather feared for this club's future,
as a very large percentage of its members belonged to Arts '17,
but this year the freshettes responded nobly to the call for new
members, so that the good work has been continued.
The Men's Glee Club, heretofore a fond hope, is at last a
reality, and comprises about forty boys. When it was decided
that they should practice with the Ladies' Glee Club the number became considerably smaller; the reason—"Who Knows?"
This year the real work of the Orchestra began after
"Christmas when practices for a Toy Symphony, consisting of
six violins and ten toy instruments, including a quail, cuckoo,
trumpet and drum commenced. This was an interesting feature of the second annual concert given in February, when the
Society was fortunate in having as soloists Mrs. Macdonald
Fahey and Mrs. Coulthard.
The Musical Society as a whole is inestimably indebted
to Mr. Russell, the honorary president and conductor. The
members appreciate the opportunity they are having of working
under his direction, and it is largely owing to his enthusiasm
and care of detail that the success of th«^club is due.

With Prof. F. G. C. Wood, Dr. H. Ashton and Mr. C.
Berkeley on its Advisory Board, the Players' Club, one of the
most active organizations in the University, has completed
what is perhaps its most successful year thus far. At the
opening of the fall session twenty-eight new members were
admitted to the Club, for whom a reception was held at the
home of the President, Miss Henderson.
The annual Christmas performance was a decided success, the more recent talent in the Club being much in evidence. Four plays were presented,, the first a light and
clever sketch, "How He Lied to Her Husband," by George
Bernard Shaw. A youth of eighteen is caught in the act of
making "sonnets to his mistress' eyebrow." The "mistress,"
by the way, is married and rather elderly, and it is the husband
who discovers the sonnets. While events move more swiftly
the youth finds himself rather'misunderstood. However, like
the fairy-tale, everything ends happily.
The setting for the next play is the cottage of a poor
widow in the North of England. In a half-pathetic and half-
humorous fashion, Harold Brighouse, the author, tells of the
pitiable circumstances which force the old lady, independent
for so long, to go into the poorhouse, and how she is given a
new hope for the future by the somewhat amusing and clumsy
intervention of Sam, the mechanic. The dialect makes the play
rather unusual, and affords the players an excellent opportunity to display their versatility.
Next the curtain goes up on a bare peasant's cottage in
Erin's Isle. This sketch, written by Yeats, is a poetical prose-
composition which he entitles "The Land of Heart's Desire."

as was the Irish colleen whose spirit flitted away with the
fairy into the moonlight, to the land—
"Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise,
Where nobody gets old and godly and grave,
Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue."
The curtain rings down on the last of the four plays, a
humorous sketch written by the Irish playwright, Lord Dun-
sany, and entitled "The Lost Silk Hat." Here, again, we
have the "eternal feminine," with whom the caller has quarrelled, and on whose doorstep he is shown, bewailing the hat
he has forgotten inside. How he attempts to persuade the
various passersby to secure the hat, and tbe manner in which
he is finally forced into getting it himself, incidentally making
up with the lady, form a situation which is amusing in the
■ The Club's selection for its annual spring performance
was Sir James M. Barrie's "Alice-Sit-by-the-Fire," Prof.
Wood kindly consenting to act as coach.
"Alice-Sit-by-the-Fire," considered by many critics to be
Barrie's masterpiece, is a delightful example of his whimsical
humor. The pathos and the comical element in the play arc
blended together in the charming style of which this well-
known English playwright is past master. Alice Grey, the
somewhat spoiled darling of an Indian Station, returns With
her husband, the Colonel, to England, where she is reunited to
her boy and girl, after an absence of some six years. The
boy, Cosmo, is very sturdy and self-reliant but indisposed
to show or receive any demonstration of family affection.
Amy, the sixteen-year-old daughter, has been visiting the theatres presenting the "deceitful wife" type of performance which
Barrie so amusingly satirizes throughout his play. She concludes that all there is to be known of life has been revealed to
her and thus involves her mother and herself in a maze of difficulties from which she emerges, as she thinks, with a supreme
confidence in herself, and an affectiojiately protective attitude
towards her "misguided mother."
Viva Martin, as the "misguided mother," well played up
to the reputation given her by one of Vancouver's foremost
stage critics, that of being "the most capable amateur actress
in this city." Alice is forty, flirtatious and fascinating. She
has been petted in India, and consequently the home-life in
England is something new and rather difficult to which she
must adapt herself. Miss Martin showed undoubted talent in
portraying the various emotions of Alice—now the impulsive
flirt, now the fond mother, until, at last she realizes that "it is
all over." "Her youth is gone," and she is truly Alice-Sit-by-
As Colonel Grey, Mr. Walter J. Agabob admirably interpreted the brusqueness and irascibility which veil the kindly
heart of the old army officer.
Miss Jessie Adam, in the charming role of Amy, captured
the hearts of her audience. Difficult as was her part she played
it in an extremely creditable manner.
•As Cosmo, her very undemonstrative younger brother,
Fred Law played the part in a delightully boyish style. "Amy's
friend till death," Lenora Dunbar, was most aptly characterized
by Miss Connie Highmoor.
Steve Rollo, an old friend of the Colonel's and of Alice,
enters into the complications of the plot. Mr. James Ellard
made a most efficient "putterly uzzled" and artless Steve,
receiving many laughs from his appreciative audience. As
Richardson, the lodging-house slavey, Miss Irene Cowan took
the part in a very able manner.
Miss Stella McGuire played the nurse who weeps copiously at the thought of yielding her place to a "vah yah."
Fanny, the housemaid, was very well taken by Miss Bina
Taylor. The whole performance was a decided success, the
general opinion being that it was the most successful yet staged
by the Club. Substantial contributions jjpere donated to various University patriotic societies as a'%result of the sale of
tickets, and all thanks are due to both the cast and its very
capable coach for the time and labor they put on the production.

She Chemistry Satiety
HE Chemistry Society during the second year of its
existence has kept up the reputation gained in the
first year, of being one of the most energetic societies of the University. Immediately upon the opening of the first term an executive meeting was
called, at which the work of the year was discussed. It was
decided, in accordance with the policy previously pursued by
the society, that the subjects to be considered throughout the
year would not be confined to chemical topics, but should include all scientific discussions.
The success of the society has been due to the excellent
quality of the lecturers and to the untiring efforts of the President;. The Professors of the Chemistry, Physics and Mining
Departments have given us much of their valuable time, and
have done everything in their power to further the interests of
the students in this line of work.
Lectures have been given on "Acetylene," "Flotation of
Ores," "Fixation of Nitrogen," "Spectroscopy," "The Aim and
Method of Science," "The Electrolytic Refining of Zinc" and
"Radio Activity," the two last mentioned being given by students, Messrs. Marshall and Mcintosh of the Senior year. The
lecture during the Christmas holidays was followed by a dance,
which was greatly enjoyed by all present.
It is" to be hoped that during the next year's work of the
Society more lectures will be given by the students themselves,
as such work is of very great value, ngj, -only to -those taking
part, but to the student-body as a whole*

there is no reason why the girls and those who
are unable to go overseas should not keep fit.
We hardly know which team should head the list, for
there is not much to choose between them. The ladies' basketball team took part in the greatest number of games. In the
fall three were played against Normal, which was victorious
in all. This year only three teams entered the league, Normal,

The Grass Hockey Club has suffered from the cruelty of
the timetable. Only two games were played; the first with
Normal left a score of 0—0, and the second, with K. E. H. S.
had the same happy ending.
A gymnasium class was organized this year in conjunction,
with the Swimming Club, and the services of Miss Goddart,
as instructress, were obtained.    In the early part of the term
these classes were so popular that a folk-dancing section was
formed, which has gone through artistics manoeuvers in the
auditorium every Friday afternoon since.
And the men? Oh, yes, the men have made several
attempts at basketball and Rugby, but the results have not
been startling. It is largely tbe fault of the timetable, we
admit, but we cannot say that we have seen arty indications of
a great desire for more athletics even of the inter-class variety.
About thirty students competed in the initial try-outs for
the first and second teams of the City League. The first team
comprised by Gordon, Saunders, Taylor, Anderson and Fisher
won two games and lost three; the second won one and lost one.
In the spring the Ladysmith team came over, but was
met by the veterans, Morrison and Brown, supported by Taylor, Anderson and Fisher, the resulting score was 25—30 in
favor of the Varsity.

N common with those movements which have to do

cannot be given for what has been achieved.

One Hundred ILTHOUGH the Alumni Association of the University of
British Columbia was not officially organized until May,
1917, the germ of the idea had
long been working. Before the University officially began the members of Arts
'16 were looking forward to and planning
for the time when they should graduate.
But 1916 found their ranks so depleted
that it was decided to wait another year
until the advent of the class of '17.
There is always the danger that the
graduate may slip away and become lost to
the University. Therefore this society
aims to be but a continuation of the Alma
Mater Spirit fostered at the college—a
broader university fellowship that will
deepen as successive classes become part of
the organization.
But the object of the society is not entirely personal. It desires above all things
to take an intelligent interest in all that
She Alumni Assatiatian
happens or should happen at the college.
Its chief endeavor is to help the students,
to interpret their needs and to promote
the accomplishment of these needs, particularly in matters which the students find
it difficult to touch upon.
To the task they will be able to bring
not only a love of the University but also
the weight of a maturer experience and
deeper knowledge of business methods.*
For there are sundry shortcomings that
could be helped along by a clear-sighted
appreciation of the facts, reforms to be
affected that would make the University
more of a real university, less of a glorified
high school.
Guided by these aims, then, the Alumni
Association was formed, with Mr. Mulhern as President and, later, as Alumni
candidate for the Senate.
While the Association has been working
along quietly all year, the main outward
manifestation of its energy was shown by
*"Ours not to reason why!"—Ed.
the Alumni dance, at which approximately
$100.00 was realized, half of which was
given to the University Red Cross, the
other half used to provide hampers for the
Alumni boys overseas.
It has also recently appointed two members to act with the Undergraduate Military Committee. In this regard the graduates have long felt that, in addition to
providing farm instruction for outside
returned soldiers, much could be done by
the University' for its own particular men
who will want to continue what is essentially university work.
This is the greatest way in which we
can show our appreciation of the highest
honor that can come to any university—
that of having the majority of her men
fighting for what they believe to be the
best that a university can typify. H we
cannot fight for the ideal we must work
for those who can that it be worth the pain
of their striving.

One hundred and three ARTS The   Arts   Men's   Undergrad-
DANCE. uate Society gave their Annual
social function on November
23rd. As it is one of the most important
dances of the year, the college in general
looks forward to it with great anticipation. In spite of the evidences of war
and its necessities, many students and
their friends enjoyed the evening to the
full. The dancers kept time to the excellent orchestra until after midnight and
seemed loath to end the twentieth dance,
even though the early hours of the morning had arrived. The patronesses for the
occasion were Mrs. Wesbrook, Mrs. R. W.
Brock, Mrs. R. L. Reid, Mrs. Klinck and
Mrs. Boggs.
ARTS '18. Of course we had it! Who ever
suggested we wouldn't? It was
the finest party we ever had, even if there
was no moon this time—just put that in
your sarcastic pipe and smoke it. We all
assembled—boys and girls, not boys with
girls note—at Miss Irene Mounce's on
Feb. 15th. Certainly it was not the place at
which we had originally decided to have
it, but then one person took pretty effective means to prevent us having it there.
When we did finally assemble the boys carried on an animated conversation (with
each other) until the music started and
then decided to find out if there were any
girls present. To prevent any possibility
of anyone carrying out that nefarious practice which it is rumoured certain people indulge in (i.e., cutting) the hall was carefully divested of anything in the nature of
seats (except, of course, the door knobs)
and alcoves, except those furnished by the
diaphanous lace curtains. After a while
half of us decided to go "home" while the
others consumed the war rations provided.
Thus ended the class party, which will
remain in years to come the model for all
successful entertainments of the kind.
By the way, we forgot to mention the
programmes—but that would entail a
separate "account."

JUNIOR The evening of January 17th
PARTY. saw in the lower halls of the
University a quaint throng of
gentle ladies and gallant gentlemen, with
here and there a clown, a pierrot or an
Indian maid. The herald's manly voice,
as he proclaimed:
"Ye perky maids of Arts '19,
Ye gallant swains come hear
The name and title of the queen
Of those assembled here"
had scarcely faded into silence, when
through the throng in solemn state our
Honorary President advanced, escorting
our graciously blushing queen, who grace
fully took his seat upon her throne. His
graceful management of her state garments, which fell in clustering folds about
his dainty ankles drew shouts of admiration and love from her worshipping subjects. Never did gallant knight in tournament kneel to more gracious queen.
Never was gallant knight trained in the
manly art of knitting by more skilful and
beauteous teacher. When Mr. Emmons,
that brave hero of the money-bags, succeeded in vanquishing his opponents in the
knitting lists, our stately queen of "Love
and Beauty" advanced from her throne and
graciously placed the crown of laurel (rank
weeds) upon his brow. Thenceforth the
noble throng besported themselves in the
usual terpsichorean fashion.
The chronicler of this romantic even expresses  her  apology    of    his  mixing  pronouns.    Those who were present will understand under what difficulties he labors.

ARTS '20 The Sophomores of this year
have been dragged into the College spot-light by displaying an almost
unusual liveliness in regard to the University social life. They held a very
successful class party last November, witb
dancing, and refreshments, and a good
orchestra—all very >enjoyable. After
Christmas there Wte an impromptu skating  party   at   the "Arena.     "Impromptu"
One hundred and four is a delicate way of explaining that Arts
'20 did not rent the whole rink, but a good
many of them were there, as well as members from other years, and all managed to
have a good time. Arrangements have
also been made for a class banquet, to be
held on the last night of the final examinations when, to the student, it seems as
if a whole world of care has been lifted off
his shoulders and he begins to feel almost
devilish. The banquet is to be followed
by a musical programme and dancing. It
promises to be a great success indeed.
CHEMISTRY  In   order    that    the    year's
DANCE programme   should   not   be
too dry and intellectual the
Chemistry Society decided to make one
of their meetings a semi-social evening.
Consequently a programme was drawn
up for an event similar to the one held
last year, but on a rather more elaborate scale. Mr. Marshall, President of
the Society, spoke on the electrolytic zinc
process. A dance followed the address and
those present greatly enjoyed the excellent
music supplied by the orchestra. Judging from the slippery condition of the
floor, the executive had evidently intended
the evening to go with a vim. Synthetic
lemonade was served during the dancing.
SCIENCE The first function we staged
during the year was our famous skating party, Monday, November
19th, which was attended and enjoyed
by over two hundred skaters. We created
quite a record this year by coming out
several dollars on the right side of the
sheet, although expenses were just as.
high as previously. The affair was proclaimed such a huge success that a second was promised, but unfortunately the
rink was not available, so instead of having another skating party we took the
money we made at our first, added quite a
sum to it and gave ourselves an entertainment in the form of a smoker, which took
place February 2nd in the Laurel Club
Rooms. Mr. Killam opened the programme with a breezy little speech, then
Jack MacDonald, the master of ceremonies, brought in a little Japanese lady who
danced to the quaint music of her country,
and then for the sake of contrast two ladies
showed us how they did the same thing in
far-off Spain.
Science men do not get together on an
occasion like this just to be entertained, so
we gathered round the fire and discussed
informally the status of athletics and college spirit in general, a committee being
elected to "try and do something." The
meeting broke up rather early—in the
Other things we might have done, other
objects might have been accomplished, but
the general seriousness which possesses us
all  at  this  most  eventful  time,  made  us
think more and  do less.    Nevertheless as
we look back and sum up, we consider that
we of  the  Science had a most successful
year and that time was not wasted on un-
essentials.     (Such  as  studying?—Ed.)

ARTS '21 The class party of Arts '21
was held in February. It was
a decided success; those present, members
of the Faculty, Class Executives, Freshies
and Freshettes thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The auditorium was decorated for the
occasion with the college colors. After
a few games and a short but enjoyable programme, dancing commenced and continued till midnight, with the exception of a
brief interval in which refreshments were
served. For those who preferred card-
playing to dancing, tables and cards were
provided, and for any others, who took no
part in either of these pastimes, good old-
fashioned games were played in the Common Room.
Shortly after midnight the party broke
up and the students wended their various
ways homeward to dream of the good time
they had had at Wttie first class party of
Arts '21.
One hundred and five FRESHMEN Having allowed a whole
RECEPTION week to elapse after the
dread ceremony of the
Freshman initiation, in order that the
Freshman might first have time to recover themselves mentally and physically
the Alma Mater Society held a reception for the First year students of the
University under the management of the
Students' Council. This was the first
formal social function of the season and
was unanimously accorded to be a great
success. Before entering, the guests of
the evening received each a number and
a dainty green bow. They were received by Dr. and Mrs. Wesbrook, Miss
Norah Coy and Mrs. F. Emmons. Miss
Coy then welcomed the newcomers to the
U. B. C. The gentlemen now commenced
a frantic search of the young ladies wearing corresponding numbers, and the con-
versats on subjects of as undoubted interest
to all as "The Freshman Initiation" were
fairly started. A short musical programme
was then rendered, which was thoroughly
appreciated by all.   The rest of the evening
was spent in dancing, only interrupted by
the appearance of dainty refreshments. By
this time everybody was chatting pleasantly
and the principal objects of the reception,
to give everyone an enjoyable time and enable the members of the First year to meet
one another and the members of other
years, had been achieved. Time took
wings unto itself and passed so agreeably
that all were surprised when the "Home
Waltz" put an end to the dancing and
terminated a most successful evening.

HIGH A very important event of the
JINKS year took place when on  Feb
ruary 9th a distinct innovation
was "sprung" on college society. Her name
was Masquerade, her habits were many
and of varied hues and her characteristics
were entirely composed of girls. As to her
influence, it may be fairly said that the
youthful maiden was received with acclamation by all concerned, and it is certain
that she proved of no inconsiderable benefit
to that most needy concern—the Red Cross
•Throughout the "High Jinks" of that
memorable night, Miss Maclnnes played
the double role of chaperone and judge,
and after much deliberation awarded the
numerous pretty and useful prizes. One of
the chief features of the occasion was the
absence of refreshments, none being provided save that ever-popular beverage—
Adam's ale.
At an early hour the revellers dispersed
and went their several ways footsore and
weary but altogether joyous at heart
AGRICULTURE  The   first   dance   of the
SOCIETY Agriculture   Society   was
DANCE held   on   the   evening   of
March 1st. A very satisfactory attendance enjoyed themselves
from eight to twelve, and it is hoped that
the society will see fit to repeat the entertainment in future years. In strict keeping with wartime conventions the only
refreshment provided was lemonade.

I. When you enter hold open the door and let your
sweet voice echo through the room. If there is no one with
you with whom to converse, just talk to yourself, anyway. It
heralds your approach very effectively.
II. Come in after the style of an express train, whistling
two or three times, and stamping your feet. Should this pass
unnoticed, run around several of the tables before you .decide
where to deposit yourself and books.
III. Always make it a point to sit beside a member of
either the third or fourth years. He is usually so overcome
with gratitude that often he can only find expression for his
feelings in a sort of convulsive sob.
IV. When you sit at a table it often provides a welcome
diversion if you carve your name on it in full, with your year
and class section, and the names of all your friends likewise.
This gives a most delightful rustic summer-house effect to the
appearance of the reading-room.
V. If anyone should get courageous and open a window you can safely conclude that he is out of his mind or is
just purposely trying to be unpleasant, so it is quite the thing
to show your resentment by closing it again and turning on
all the radiators full blast.
VI. You should endeavor to keep up a brilliant flow of
conversation at the table you honor with your presence. If
there should be awful silence it is due, no doubt, to the fact
that the company is mixed and has little in common. They
only make a pretense at study in order to veil their bashful-
ness, and it is your duty, as a member of Arts '21, to make
things pleasant for everyone.

No doubt he would be greatly encouraged if you began tapping also.
VIII. When you drift over to the reference shelves for
a book try to worm your way between the aisles where you
perceive there is the least space. Then people have to go
through funny contortions until you can get by, which causes
them great amusement.
IX. Always remove about ten of the reference books at
a time. You can try juggling with them, and anyone who
may want to use them can have the exquisite enjoyment of
searching for an hour or so.
X. You should make a sensational exit after the novelty
begins to wear off, by knocking over your table and two or
three chairs, as well as any stupid persons who may be unfortunate enough to come between you and the door. It is often
quite dramatic if you leave by the window or slide down the
railing of the fire-escape.

One hundred and eleven One hundred and twelve It's a college man's duty to wear good clothes
A man may have a heart of gold and a college education and still wear cheap, ready-made
clothes. He may, but he certainly discounts himself and his train'ng. He'll find it hard to
be accepted at his true worth. A follege man should look the part. Don't scoff; it's not
camouflage.    What's the  use of putting a $100 set of works in a ten-cent watch case?
If a college education means anything it means
culture — a sense of the fitness of things, and good
taste. Good clothes indicate both. If there's anything
more calculated to send a man's stock down it's a suit
obviously not made for the owner, but for a dummy.
No two figures are exactly alike. A gentleman's clothes
should be made for him.
But why wear these dummy clothes — characterless, comic? I offer you the services of a clever,
designer, who always keeps in touch with Broadway
and Fifth Avenue, Canadian tailors of highest skill.
British imported woolen fabrics in a wide variety of
patterns—a suit to be proud of—that will do you jus-

get the substance of the lecture from a somewhat reticent young
man.    "But what sort of a tail has the heron?" she enquired.
He was very much embarrassed. "Oh, ah," he said, "we
mustn't talk about it."
"Mustn't talk about it!"
"Yes.    Here are my notes."    She read, "The heron has

To the  Young Men:
This Is the age of the trained. Are you trained? In a short
time I can train you to become a fully qualified wireless operator, with a flrst-class Government Certificate, ready to accept
one of the numerous lucrative positions offered to our graduates.
The study of wireless is fascinating and interesting. Wireless
is being used on the lines of communication in the present war.
The Marconi Company have installed at this Institute an
up-to-date 1-7 k.w. Marconi wireless equipment, and practical
instruction is given to every student. The Marconi Company
give preference to our graduates. Our students have the great
advantage of being examined by a Government Inspector at this
Institute on the apparatus with which their training has made
them fully familiar.
We shall be pleased to give demonstrations to intended students at any time. Wireless telegraphy offers opportunities to
see the world in luxury and comfort, in a highly respected profession offering good salaries.    Enroll now.    We will do the rest.
This branch of the Institute is complete in every detail.
New railroads are opening up In this Province (Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk Pacific and the Pacific Great Eastern). All
these railways will require operators in the near future which
will increase the already large demand for experienced operators.
The Great Northern Railway have installed an instrument In the
Institute, which is permanently connected to their main line,
and by this means our students learn under actual working conditions.
You may go forth from this institution at graduation to a
splendid position, including short hours, pleasant work and good
pay, with prospects of rising to the highest places in the railroad and commercial world.
There is an increasing demand for experienced operators in
this section.    This is an ideal profession for young women.
Our men are being called upon to fight the»JEmpire's battles
and someone must take their places at homes** Now is the chance
for young women to learn Commercial Telegraphy. Healthful
employment, short hours and good salary.
One hundred and twenty-four A   MATHEMATICAL   INTERPRETATION   OF   THE   GENESIS.
(Not strictly in accordance with Geology.)
How many apples did they eat?
Some say Eve 8 and Adam 2, a total of 10 only. We
think that the above figures are entirely wrong and could be
improved upon quite materially. For instance: If Eve 8 and
Adam 8, 2—the total will certainly be 90. Several scientific
men have, however, contributed greatly to our knowledge upon
the subject. By basing their conclusions upon the strength of
the theory that antediluvians were a race of giants, they arrive
at something like this: Eve 8, 1, and Adam 8, 2, with a total
of 163. This, however, we are compelled to admit is wrong, ■
for Professor Huxley has proved that if Eve 8, 1, and Adam
8, 1, 2 the total will obviously be 893. This, in the light of
later researches, has proved too small a figure, as Professor
Tyndall has published a paper in which he thinks that Eve
8, 1, 1st, and Adam followed suit and 8, 1, 2. This we are
bound to admit raises the totalto 1,623. Mr. Matthew Arnold
after a careful study of prehistoric remains has given us yet
another figure, which is even more accurate than the former
ones. He believes that Eve 8, 1, 4 Adam and that as a consequence Adam 8, 1, 2, 4 Eve, and that together they got away
with 8,938. Careful study of the conditions, with proper consideration of their environment would suggest that if Eve 8,
1, 4 Adam, Adam 8, 2, 4 2 oblige Eve, and we have obtained
a still higher total of 9,056. For many years this total
remained  unchallenged,   but  in  the  light  of  more   extended

knowledge upon the subject we have been able to say with
assurance, that though we admit that Eve only 8, 1, 4 Adam,
Adam, if he ate (and there seems to be sufficiently satisfactory
evidence) ought to have 8, 1, 2, 4, 2, keep Eve company, and
we have a total of 82,056. We feel confident that the last word
has not been said on this all fascinating subject for as this went
to press the office boy at the last moment has pointed out that
this is wrong, and says that Eve, when she 8 1, 8 1 2 many
and probably felt sorry for it, and that her companion, in
order to relieve her sorrow 8 12. Therefore Adam, if he 8 1,

we arrive at the total of 81,896,866 apples.

Psalm of life
Tell me not, in mournful numbers
That exams are here again!
Heavy are my eyes with slumber,
Weary is my tired brain.
College life is bright and earnest,
But   exams are still its goal;
And regrets for all I know not
Cast a shadow on my soul.
Scores of students gone before us
Trod the same appointed way,
So we work that each to-morrow
Find  us wiser than to-day.
Lives of great men all remind us
Do our best at every time,
And, if failing, leave behind us
Not a whimper nor a whine.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still translating, still reviewing,
Learn to labor and to wait.

We hope that you have read this far without falling asleep or going outside for fresh air. We
hope you have gazed long and fondly on our endless succession of Rogues' Galleries and have
dwelt almost as long and quite as fondly on the accounts of the sins and virtues inscribed opposite
those astute visages. If these accounts should be apologized for, we will do it. We are used to it,
and it costs nothing. We also quite as gracefully accept the numerous congratulations that have
been showered upon us because of the splendid "Annual" we have turned out. Many of the really
high-brow people of the University didn't think that we were capable of it. Neither did we—neither'
did the janitor. However, it remains "an eternal monument to our genius." (We thank you, whoever said that.)
As the rest of this cherished volume is devoted solely to advertisements you may peruse it at
your leisure and feel quite secure, for there will be no more slams, no more society write-ups, and no
more attempts at humor.
At this point we discover that the College Cat, which is always in the way, has had the misfortune to stray into our joke column. He now lies prostrate on the floor. No doubt he has gone the
way of all good felines, but that cannot lessen our grief.
