Sub-station at 5th Avenue and Fir St.
Members will meet, either in the 5th
Civil Draughting room at 1 p.m. or at

At a meeting to be held In Applied

"Piirllmontury Procedure" wns the subject of Ihe lecturo given by Judge
H, 0. MacOlll before, the Women's Literary Society, Wednesday, January
1*. This was tlie llrst of a course of four lectures on public speaking given
by the society.
Jn opening, Judge MucCllll explained that lt wus Important to know the
ales of procedure, and to conduct meetings according to those rules.   "It Is
HO rod tape that saves you from the discussion after," she stated.    During
lie lecturo sho referred constantly to books on parliamentary procedure by
Palgraves, Bournlno and Sir T. Ersklne May.
"All business should be introduced
f way of a motion." After explaining the different kinds of motions and
tne correct forms, Judge MacOlll dis*
eassed amendments which should be
thoroughly understood though they
ire complicated because they result
In lawsuits. The final resolution
should be a logical and concise statement of what Is to be done.
The duties of the officers were then
defined. One of the chief duties of
the president is to see that all remarks are addressed to the chair.
This not only takes the heat out of
fiery discussion but it promotes orderly meetings and keeps the guiding
reins In the hands of the president.
In discussing the keeping of minutes
Judge MacQill quoted the words of
Bournlno: "Minutes are no place for
men's speeches." Only the briefest
Outlines of speeches should appear in
the minutes, while all "nice remarks"
Should be included ln the vote of
In speaking of the vote of thanks,
Judge MacQill pointed out the common fault of an elaborate vote of
thanks which detracted from the
speech itself. The vote of thanks
Should be "a simple expression of appreciation."
In concluding the address the speaker dealt with the proper method of
holding discussion and the duties of
executives and committees.
Tea was then served by Dean Bollert. Pouring tea was Miss Qerry
Whitaker and assisting in serving
were Miss Beth Dow, Miss Grace
Adams, Miss Barbara Ashby, Mlse
Helen Smith, Miss Grace Ryall, Miss
Ethel McDowell, Miss Margaret Orms-
by, Miss Velina McGauley and Miss
Muriel Dixon.
Flayers' Club Announces Cast
For "Rollo's Wild Oat"
The Players' Club production, 'Rollo's Wild Oat," which is to be presented early In March, gives evidence of
being one of the most ambitious plays
the Club has ever attempted. The
theme of the production Is comedy-
drama, being a play within a play.
Holo who Is the chief character, ln
attempting to produce "Hamlet," justifies ln one sense the ambiguity of
the title which however Is very
pleasantly fulfilled at the close of the
If the judgment of the Players'
Club Is correct, the productions should
be a great success with everyone both
In and outside the University. The
characters and those tentatively assigned to play them follow.

Varsily Hoop stars lost one of Ihe most spectuculur gumes of the season,
when the Meralomas teum sent the Senior, "A" women home to the tuna

fairly evenly matched, neither side displaying notlceuble brilliance. Vanity
lost (he gamo simply because tt didn't play hard enough. The team as a
whole wus not up to Its usual standard, missing plenty of perfectly good
chances rot* scoring. Rene Harris and Claire Menten were the only players
on tho student team who turned In their usual game and wero responsible
for many good teum plays.
Mussolini is Discussed at
S.C J. Lecture
"Mussolini und Present Day Conditions lu Italy" formed the topic for
nn Interesting lecturo given by Harold
Brown of this city under S.C.M. auspices.
Frank Mackenzie, second vice-president of the S.C.M. Introduced Mr.
Brown to the audience as one interested in Itulian conditions and conversant with the present day conditions of this state.
Mr. Brown opened his topic with
a discussion of the problems present-
day Industrialization has precipitated
in the society of Europe and the world
generally. The deleterious results
arising from unchecked conditions in
this highly specialized mechanical
age, Mr. Brown observed, were ln such
countries as Russia marked by violent upheavals. Even British Columbia, he stated, had too much poverty
lu consideration of Its population and
wealth. «
With this In mind Mr. Brown continued to discuss how such a dynamic
personality as Mussolini could effect,
in one sweep, startling reorganizations of social conditions ln an effort
to avert Impending catastrophe. Thus,
though Mussolini is autocratic he is
vindicated by his Innate modesty and
his great purpose of Italian rejuvenation. From his historic "March on
Rome" to the present day Italy's welfare has been Mussolini's paramount
thought, and in his position as the
moulder of Italian destiny, he has always acted with the precision a cold
and calculating mind was supplied.
Fascism, created by Mussolini's
guiding hand, was shown by Mr.
Brown to he Italy's nation wide confederation built on the solid foundation of active comradeship. Fascism
Is the unbounded faith of Italians In
Italy, and we, emphatically stated Mr,
Hrown, have reason to be eternally
grateful to its standards since il was
the force which in its own sphere
checked rampant Bolshevism. Fascism
stood too as a steadfast guardian and
an Impartial arbltor In '.he distribution of a common heritage. Fascism
is unrestricted In its spirit of youthful enthusiasm and Impetus. For
eight years Fascism, and Its guiding spirit, Mussolini, had stood for
law and order against the opposing
forces of Bolshevist anarchy and internal strife and had won out.
Mr. Brown concluded by his observation that we in British Columbia
could derive a beneficial lesson from
this spirit of the new Itnly.
A hearty round of applause was
rendered the speaker for his Interesting address.
Orators To Be Chosen
Literary Representatives ure reminded that the tryouts for the oratorical contest will he held on Monday at ;i p.m. lu Room Arts ion. Four
men and four women will be chosen
as finalists to compete on the even
lug of Februury ft lu the auditorium
An unprecedented enthusiasm has
been shown to dat*' and the contest
this year promises to be Hie best
since   Its   Inception.
Several newcomers to Varsity's ora
torlcnl ranks are expected lo turn
out and may displace some of their
more experienced opponents. In nny
event It Is claimed the competition
will be unusually keen. An effort Is
being made to procure tin assist
mice ol the Musical Society to add
lo   the   aesthetic   enjoyment   of   the
Tho tlrst quarter was fairly even.
Rettie Ttngloy scored the flrst point
of the evening by a free shot. Mora*
lomus retaliated with two baskets,
After some fast team work and clever
passing, Rene Harris chalked up three
points for the Co-eds, making the
score 4-all at quarter time. The second quarter was uneventful. Varsity
still had the edge, but was unable to
penetrate the strong Meraloma's defense. Rene Harris scored the only
basket of the quarter, giving the blue
and gold a 6-4 lead.
In the third quarter Varsity weakened. Meralomas made a decided
spurt, scoring three baskets in quick
succession. Claire Menten brought
the count up to a 12-all tie just before tho three quarters whistle, by
scoring a nice basket.
In the last quarter the real game
began with , Meralomas forcing the
play and Varsity defending. After
some fine team work Thelma Mahon
got her fast dribble ln to advantage
and scored. Rene Harris then scored
on a penalty making the tally 15-12,
Varsity's favor. Meralomas "pepped
up" and reduced the student lead to
2 by scoring a penalty. Thelma,Mahon again scored a fine basket, making the count 17-13. Then with live
minutes to play, Meralomas began to
force the play, Despite the fact that
they called "time" Varsity simply
couldn't check the Meralomas onrush.
Passing cleverly and scoring quickly,
Meralomas wrought havoc with the
student team. The score was 17-16
when Rettie Tingley failed to tie the
count in a free shot. Meralomas
scored another penalty on Thelma
Mahon, giving them a lead of 2. Varsity rallied desperately in the last
minute but failed to score. The
whistle blew with Varsity vanquished
For Varsity, Rene Harris starred and
Claire Menten played a steady game.
The team: Thelma Mahon (4), Claire
Menten (I), Rene Harris (8), Rettie
Tingley (l), Jean Whyte, Mary Campbell, Marjorie Lannlng, Flo Carlisle.

Ab the Varsity paper, we should evenly distribute our Mupport
to ill Varsity affairs. Hence we take up our pen to point out
onoe more to the student body that to-night there Ih to be a
debate betwoen the U.B.C. and the University of Manitoba. Probably a great many will promptly give up trying to read this
effusion at this point, Therefore we beg those who continue the
good work to consider that Intellectual diversion can surely give
as much enjoyment as athletic or social. University is supposed
to furnish opportunities for the exercise and enjoyment of our
minds: and debates we consider come in this category. Hence
we may suggest that any who turn out to-night will get "their
money's worth" as much as at a rugby game.
Next year, sixteen students will be selected from the University of British Columbia as ambassadors to various universities throughout Canada, if present plans of the N.F.C.U.S. are
carried out, state J. Ross Tolmie, president' of tho A. M. S., who
has recently returned from the N.F.C.U.S. convention in Kingston.
In return, sixteen students from various Canadian universities will attend U. B. C.
This exchange of students, promoted by the work of the
National Federation of Canadian University Students, promises
a wider scope for the work of Canadian universities, ubviously
sixteen chosen students coming into U.B.C. as "ambassadors"
from other universities will mean the advent of new Ideas and
probably new methods, while most of those selected to carry U.
B. C. ideas to other universities will probably return here for a
final year.
As a result of this inter-universlty contact, a better spirit
of co-operation should result among the universities of Canada,
and as national institutions with a more national outlook they
will become more unified. The chosen students will no doubt
be selected as representatives of different student activities; some
tire-eminently as scholars, others as athletes, as debaters, legis-
ators, Journalists, actors, and all activities which represent the
various phases of student life.
British Columbia, under such a system, will have much to
gain and little to lose. Located as we are, in a somewhat isolated
position from other universities, we will secure perhaps the greatest gain in financial arrangements as well as in the contact of
The scope of the N.F.C.U.S. is empire-wide and international
in many respects. Through this organization, Canadian universities will get in touch with universities throughout the world.
The Empire conference of rniv'M'Hity Students held in Eastern
Canada in September should prove of vast importance to universities in the Empire, hut especially to universities in Canada.
At the present time, there is on tlio campus a small band
of giant-killers performing the laudable task of ridding us of our
telegraph poles. Visitors have expressed surprise that those
pillars of ugliness have been allowed to mar an otherwise beautiful campus and we think that the University authorities have
taken a very necessary step in having the wires put underground.
From the practical point of view, tlie poles had many things
ln their favor. They were cheap, the wires could be repaired easily
and so on; but ye gods, they were hideous! It is good to think
that in at least one corner of Vancouver utility is placed second
to beauty. And it is only right that such a place should be at
the University.
This is entirely in keeping with the purpose of a university.
It is not a technical school. Ita benefits cannot be measured in
dollars. Except for Appliod Science, it does not aim to be practical In the money-making sense. It strives to show that there
are more things in life than the accumulation of money. It
distinguishes the means from tiie end.
This part of the university education cannot be obtained
from books alone. It comes from the beauty of mellow buildings
from the associations and traditions of the college, from the
memories of famous former studentH. The U. II. (\ as yet lacks
all thin. The grandeur of the Arts (lullding has still to Inspire
reverence In the beholder. Hut at least we are developing (he
natural beauty of a setting uiie<|iiulled by any university lu North
America. And until the permanent struct tires are erected and
the Ivy grows thick upon the Library, the beauty of the campus
will remain an educational factor as Important as any course of
That Is why we consider that the removal of the unsightly
line of poles does more to bulltl up the University than any synthetic outburst of "college spirit" over an athletic contest.
All organizations drawing up a program for the coming events, will find
a list of dates for future functions,
ulroady granted by Council In the
Rooms and Dates tray on the council
table. Since the dates fh this hook
have been definitely arranged, by consulting It many clashes can be avoided

Cafeteria Robbery
Sleuths hired by the Cafeteria are
now on the trail of the criminal who
bus been stealing tump sugar from
thnt mansion of mastication. It may
be remembered by tho readers of the
Muck Page that a notice appeared
thereon last Issue stating that a reward would he given for evidence

offer was readily accepted by the Caf.
management, on the advice of the
Feature Bdltor who has a personal
Interest tn the matter oh account of
his sugar (not the modern sense)
being stolen while he wan peacefully
Imbibing tea and crumpets.
Other cases of missing lump sugar
have been reported to the authorities
by highly Indignant customers. Waitresses, in tears, have brought to notice the fact that seventy-eight and
three quarters lumps have turned up
missing. One frequenter of the Caf.
remarked that In all hla three years
In flrst year at Varsity he had never
heard of such startling, daylight robberies. Another stated that crime
whs too low for oven a Lower Common room Inhabitant to commit.
Mr. X. 0. McHootch, well known
I'niverslty Professor, gave an In-
Btnnce of the perpetration of one of
these crimes to a Muck Staff reporter,
"I hud just finished smearing a muffin with great care to see that evory
possible square inch on the surface
of tho object at hand was covered.

Placidly, Haltleman Arbuthnot, honor student In History, waxed and

Years he had toiled m a atudent to
obtain honors In History so as to enable him to hold a good place in lite.
Hie thesis on the "History of Great
Ntok, Long Is.," had startled the
thinking world into a great flurry of
thinking. With all this future behind
him he deolded to go out to make his
career as a man of the world.
The method by which he rose to
his present high position is unique ln
the annals of History students. This
Is how It came about:
One day while finishing his fourth
year by sleeping dally In the stacks,
his nasally musical emanations
caught the attention of the master,
head and rulor-ln chief of the literary
lair. The great man was startled by
this unusual procedure for usually
when the occupants wished to sleep
they adopted an attitude of concentrated study,
But this sleeping man had apparently cast aside all affectation of stu-
dlousness and he was sleeping. With
ejaculations the bearded one asked,'
"Do you know who I am?"
"I'll bite," answered the student.
Frightened by this ferocious reply,
the lordly one almost fled, but seeing
the bravery of the man and his ability
to sleep In tho Library, he instantly
perceived that here was the right person suited for the empty Janitor's position.
Thus through his education, for lt
was at Varsity, he had learned to
sleep properly, the Honor Student triumphed In the battle ot life.

aecond quarter while the Varsity teum
made three points displaying fast
passing throughout, At halt time tho
count stood 10-8 for North Vancouver.
The Senior "B's" found It harder to
avoid their checks In the third quarter. North Vancouver, after a closo
■truggle managed to chalk up 4 morn
points while Wllma Watson made a
tree shot tor Varsity. The North Vancouver points were creeping ahead,
finishing this quarter 14-9. In the last
quarter both teams, playing hard,
North Vanoouver scored three baskets

Campus is Improved
The unsightly telephone poles
which have fringed the east side of
The Mall are being removed by the
university. Like a well-trained squad
placed on duty In the dim past, these
weather-beaten veterans have resolutely stood their ground throughout
the years, bearing on their patient
shoulders the wires for the wireless
station. Ignored by the hundreds of
students, who daily sauntered hy lt,
frowned upon hy the majestic piles
which flanked it, scorned hy an avenue of embryonic trees, this gaunt
array has steadfastly maintained Its
posts until forcibly dislodged. The
wireless station, however, will not
be without wires, but the lines will
be re-routed along tho northern extremity of the campus.

University of B.  C,
Dear Sir: —
I would have liked to have had a
meeting of the Men's Athletic Association before leaving Varsity, but it
was Impossible. So I am writing you
with the hope that you may be able
to find space for this in your paper.
To say the least, It was disappointing to have to drop out In the middle
of the year, and especially so with regard to my work in Men's Athletics.
I felt as though I was breaking faith
with the men of the Unlvorslty In not
finishing the work I hud undertaken,
and I wish to express to them my
Hlncerost regrets. I also want to
thank them for the honor they did
me In electing me to the office. Hut
particularly 1 wish to show my appro-
elation for the splendid cooperiilloii
given me throughout lust term hv
the Men's Athlotlc Kxeciitlve, With
such nn executive to work with the
new president need hnve no fears In
taklni* up the work nt this late Hinge.
I know they will all he even more
solidly behind him,and I am glad to
have this opportunity of wishing him
the very best of luck.
Yours for a successful 1021),

" Oht 1 never read the Ubyssey!"
It seems unlikely, almost impossible,
but the fact remains there are people
who never reud lt. Thy can deliberately cast aside temptation and take
home half-a-dozen copies merely to
wipe their shoes or light the fire. I
admire their self-control. Not everyone could be so—I might almost say,
aloof! But occasionally the Ubyssey
ls put to even stranger purposes. I
have seen some In the Cafeteria, tear
out spy-holes arid gaze benevolently
through them at objects that particularly please their sense of humour.
Gilbert wrote:
"I've often thought
That headstrong youths
Of decent education
Determine all Important truths
With strange precipitation."
