Freshmen Win
Province Cup
FmI Froth Rugby Squad
Defeats Victor.*
Varsity Freshmen won tie B. C. Intermediate Rugby championship Sat-
Srday at Brockton Point and retained
Heir undefeated record when they
met Victoria's best in the final. Scoring six points and blanking the Oak
Bay Wanderers, the Freshmen made a
try in each half. They should have
made a better score but we're unable
to finish off several fine runs-
Harry Seed scored the first try after
a twenty-five yard run when he secured from loose scrum formation and
dashed away. He fell over the line
smothering the ball aa he was tackled
after diving through the Victoria defense.
Gordon Shields carried the ball over
the line after a fine run at the end of
the three-quarter rush. The Victoria
defense knocked the ball away from
him before he could place It down
and Hundal following up to advantage
fell on the ball and scored a try.
The Freshmen brought the only
rugby championship to Varsity that
was secured this year by the collegians.

SENIOR "A" WIN
CHAMPIONSHIP
Provincial Title Captured By
Varsity Basketers After
Thrilling Game
For the first time In the local history of basketball, Varsity's Senior A
squad have brought the Provincial
Championship to the University. Six
hundred wildly enthusiasts spectators saw ('(inch Ilryson's boys take
the long end of a 26-24 count at Duncan last Saturday night. Although
the score Indicates a very closely
played game, It. doe* not tell the whole
story.
With the team upset by Swansea
Peck's sudden removal to the hospital
Just prior to the game, Hryson decided
on a defensive gnme for the (list half.
This was a good move, for the slippery floor made offensive tactics
highly dangerous. There was, however, no let up In speed, for the Duncan boys, accustomed to tihe Hoar,

All week we have been smothered
with lltnerlck-ends. The capacious
baskets In our outer olllce have been
heaped high, emptied, and heaped
again with contributions from ambitious Homers and Sappho s, desirous
of winning fame and a subscription
to the Ubyssey for the rest of the
current term. At almost hourly Intervals has Bill Tansley staggered Into
the editorial office, laden with offerings gleaned from the letter-rack and
the mall sack. Some of the creative
ones, In their eagerness, have even
brought their contributions in person, bursting their way into the Annual-Business, or Business-Annual office by mistake.
As can be imagined, such a flood of
literature and a flow of talent has had
to be scrutinized with the most
lengthy, painstaking and Intelligent
care. This, of course, ihas been done.
It Is, therefore, after the most careful
and conscientious consideration that
we are able to state the winner and
Ihe two contestants who have merited
honorary mention, as follows:
Winner—A modest student, frequent
contributor to the Literary Corner,
who has disguised his identity under
the nom-de-plume of "Lindor." The
limerick as completed by Lindor, reads
as follows:
A member of Arts Twenty-five
To aid lilio Development Drive.
Hocked his spat3 and his gown,
But was greatly cast down
When the rest, of us folks  wern't so
live.
Honorary mention:
1. Eddie Eades—
"For patches and darns still survive"
2. An Anonymous contributor from
Ihe B. C. Public Stenographer's
olllce—
"When a banana skin caused him to
dive."

There will be six bouts Instead of the
scheduled seven as the Washington

The Varsity boxers to take part. In
the other weights have been picked
and it Is likely that no changes will
be made before the bouts Saturday
when the boys will make their showing at S o'clock.
Pinkie Stewart, 115 pounds, has
been picked for that weight. Jack
Dawson says he and Glllsnn are two
of the most clever boys he has ever
handled. II Is expected that Stewart
will romp off with the B.C. Provincial
championship in this cla«s in the provincial tournament and should be a
winner In Hie Washlnglon-B, C. bouts.
Eddie Mulhern. 125 pounds, won In

Jack (llllson. Kin pounds, Is fast,

NINE S0CCER1TES
ALMOST HOLD I.L.A.
The Longshoremen eleven boostevl
their league average at the expense of
the Varsity "nine" soccerltes last Saturday, by a lone tally .In the mlddlo
of the first stanza by Ralsbeck, the
dockers' inside left, Over a thousand
spectators at the Con Jones' enclosure
watched a depleted Varsity team fighting desperately right up to the final
minute of play to stave off defeat.
When the vanquished blue and gold
squad walked off the field after putting up a stellar exhibition of soccer
and a game, fighting spirit, they were
given a tremendous hand-out by a
soccer and sports loving crowd who
gave vent to their feelings by clapping
and cheering In an enthusiastic manner seldom witnessed on local fields.
The Longshoremen started out wltih
two men short also .but these came on
after about ten minutes of play, With
all due respect to the dockers they
did not play a convincing brand of
soccer and despite the fact that they
won the game the students were good
value for a draw and forced the play
right up to the final toot of Ihe whistle.
Although the first soccer students
don't wish to make alibis they certainly have had a tough run of luck
lately, They started the season without their star goalie, Harry Mosher,
Harry Aucihlnvole at center took his
degree at Christmas, Tanny Butler.
Max Evans, Bobby Jackson and Eric
Huestis were all crocked two weeks
ago, and to make matters worse Tommy Wilkinson and Fred Newcombe
were both playing basketball In Duncan last Saturday.
King played a whale of a game in
goal for the collegians and saved
many hard shots that looked like sure
goals. Romlnson was also In good
form for the waterfront men, but had
some narrow shaves.
Scotly Deans played his second
game of the season with the collegians and did well, ('rule was also
in gootl form. Butchnrl played a safe
game- at full back for the 1   I,. A.
Varsity: Kink', Baker, Letllnyham,
Phillips, Ruckley, ('rule, Ivans, Cameron,   Emery.

like a Carthaginian warrior. And this
team wants you to be there, too, and
yell too. Many students realize In a
sleepy, hazy way, that these boys are
out early In the morning training.
But they fall to realize the purpose
of this training, a purpose which Is
to bring a championship to the university. Last Saturday, the team did
what has never been done before,
they beat Ex-King George, Credit for
Mils must go largely to Lever Bates,
who has devoted himself to the game.
In the St. Marks' squad the blue and
gold will have strong opposition. In
a case like this when the organized
yelling of a host of supporters might
bring a provincial championship to
the college, why should not the multitude be there? Tickets can be bud
from Fred Saunders or other players,
and remember that ihe iranie Is Saturday. 2ir»i at Athletic Park.

EX-KING GEORGE
BEATEN AT LAST
In one of the finest exhibitions of
the Canadian code this seasan, Varsity senior defeated the Ex-King
George team, former champions, by
the score of 11 to 1. They will therefore meet St. Mark's next Saturday in
the provincial finals for the Bob
Brown Cup.
John Hockin, a star from the Junior
orbli, was the shining light of the blue
and gold team. It was ho who put
heart In his team by two or three
nice drop kicks In the opening stanzas.
At half time the score stood 5 to 1
for Varsity. Murray Rowan was the
only scorer for the Georgians.
Coach Rose, of the Varsity team deserves no small amount of credit for
his handling of his team. Under his
guidance they cooked the West-End-
ers' hash by nailing their star back-
field runners, Rowan and Barclay,
every time. This Improved tackling
was a large factor in Varsity's win.
Hall and Seed also deserve honorable mention. The former for his excellent punting which consistently
netted gains for his team, and the
luller for scoring with the assistance
of Bates the only try of the game.
Dont forget the finals next Saturday, when St. Mark's must be met
and vanquished. Varsity support Is
needed. Remember—Athletic Park,
next Saturday afternoon.
Senior "A" Win Title
(Continued from Page 1)
forced the game to r. whirlwind pace.
The sterling defence of Grauer and
Wilkinson, the quick offensive breaking of Arkley and Newcombe, and the
steady work of Henderson at centre
kept the play fairly even until the
whistle blew for half lime with Varsity two points up In a 15-13 score.
The second half was replete with
moments of intense excitement and at
times. U( feree Hob While was forced
to quieten the crowd to enable the
idayeis iii hear his whistle. Coach
llryson ordered a strong offensive;
and Varsity started off with a rush
that carried them in ten minutes to
a ten point lead. Pad Hartley started
the fun when he raged the ball from
beyond lb" foul line. U. Henderson
followed with another two points from
a difficult angle. Then a five-man attack with Wilkinson and Grauer staging some beautiful running-guard work
brought the score to 25-15 for Varsity. And then—It happened. The
timekeeper who had been competing
frantically but feebly with six hundred raucous throats, suddenly
rushed on to Ihe floor and the game
stopped, An ominous silence-—(hearts
and (lowers). Four personals had
been called on Dal Grauer and for the
first time this season he was forced
to leave the floor. Still, with seven
•"Inutes to go and a ten point lead It
looked like a sure win for Varsity.
But Duncan rose Phoenlxllke from
the ashes of despair. Four flukey
baskets In succession the Duncan
crowd gone mad.
But  with Ihe score 2ti2l the whistle
blew for full time and the Phoenix of
Duncan's hope went up In smoke leaving behind only  Hie original ashes.

A TRI8UTI
The University has won two provincial clmmplonahlpti during Ihe past
week; the Senior A Basketball and
the Intermediate Rugby. Both these
teams deserve a great deal of credit
for the record they have established
during the year, The Freshman Rugby squad went through ihe season
without one defeat, winning the provincial championship against the Island team after easily disposing or
every league team on the mainland.
While the record of the Senior A
has not been so consistent the team
merits by Its steady uphill climb since
Christmas the championship It has
won. For the first time since Varsity ente.ed the Senior Division Ihe
team headed the city league, and the
defeat of Duncan brings the Varsity
Into line for a try at the Canadian
national championship Much of the
credit for Varsity's success In Senior

was present at the Vancouver Institute Inst week when Dr. Sedgewick
delivered an address entitled "The
New Wordsworth," in which he revealed (he poet In his most modern conception, as a Revolutionary.
The sneaker commented on the inadequacy of Wordsworth's early biographers who, with great propriety carefully suppressed the publication of
Ihe poet's revolutionary doctrines, and
Ihe most interesting Incidents relating
to his IBe, with the result that he
was long regarded as a dull and unattractive llgure. The new literature
of the last twenty years, notably Le-
gouls' book, the letters of the Wordsworth family and Dorothy's Journals,
has served to rectify this Impression.
We now tec tgnlae that the French
Revolution and his contact with It
made Wordsworth a great poet. Be-
rote that time his poetry, notably "Descriptive Sketches" had followed the
eighteenth century tradition, and had
he continued In this fashion ho would
have l.een merely a secondary poet,
of a dying school. The moments of
Illumination of his childhood were only
revealed to him in their proper light
after tils experiences with the French
Revolution. Its doctrines helped him
Immensely. Through Benupay he became familiar with the works of Rousseau; anil the Ideas of the brotherhood
of man, and the Importance of human
Instincts and feelings, agreed with his
early experiences as a Hiiwkeshead
schoolboy, and taught him to appreciate the soul of the humble man and
the testimony of eye and ear. God-
wlnlsin bedevilled him for a time, but
he succeeded In casting It off almost
entirely, and relumed with greater enthusiasm lo Nature, his first teacher.
Ills contact with Cnlerldge furnished him with the philosophy of Locke
and Hume and enabled htm lo propound Ihe theory of mutual domination rdioMlng the Influence of the
uorkliiK* of the outer world on the
mind and the mind on ihe miter world.

New President of
Lit. and Scientific
JOHNNY OLIVER
Another of the sweeping popular
victories of these hectic days Is that
of John Oliver to tihe presidency of
the Literary and Scientific Society.
Johnny has a combined course in
Sc. '26 and Arts '21, and, as his presence In either one of these faculties
Is eminently desirable, and as the Aggies think that one man on the Council Is sufficient to preserve them from
Ihe oblivion to which they are destined, In short, because he Is universally
acknowledged to be the best man for
the position, Johnny was elected by
acclamation. He is well known as a
rower and as a campaign worker, In
the former capacity he is both athlete and executive, while In the latter he assisted on the campaign committee last year and is In charge of
It this year. The manner in which
he has compendiously handled his executive positions and his participation
In student activities In general make
his selection extremely popular.
"Modesty can now be found," says
the Jacksonville Times-Union, "in the
the dictionary."—Ex.

HAM AND POETRY WONT MIX
To the Editor,
Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:—
Can anything be done to moderate
the excesses of certain noon-hour barbarians?   Though their activities probably have a wider range, the present
complaint is based on observation of
Room Y, where our class meets three
times a week in the early afternoon.
Invariably we find the room looking
as If recently occupied by a Sunday-
school picnic unprovided with teachers.
Hard-boiled    eggs,    wrapping   paper,
ham, twine, bread and butter are all
excellent   things   at  their  time  and
place; but their place is not a Classroom floor, and their time Is hardly
the Romantic Period of English Poetry.
We would suggest that lunchers who
forgather at noon in any class-room,
fight against the spirit of the herd and
follow  a more civilized guidance  in
the disposal of the remnants of his
least.
Signed on behalf of English 16.

PROFANITY INSONG SHEETS
Dear Members of the A.M.S.:
I would like It understood that this
letter Isn't "knocking" at any particular person or faculty, but It is meant
fpr the thoughtful consideration of all.
We, as students of the U. D. C, are
proud of our diiversity because it Is
supposed to stand for all that is best
in our province along educational and
other lines. Those who recently swore
to stand behind Ihe I'. II. C. and do
their best tor lis sake, namely the
Freshman Class, were impressed with
the solemn promise taken at the be-
^iiiniiiK of last term. 1 (a I'reslieite)
would like lo ask 11' you think that we
as a student body do act In a becoming manner for members of so worthy
an institution? I believe that whether
we realize It or not, there are times
when we don't leave a very good Impression of the V. n. C. How can we
he really proud of ourselves as a
whole, when, at games open to the
public we give yells such as No. 16
on the song sheet. Certainly we want
good sportsmanship, but there's no
need for bringing profanity Into it.
There are a few songs that we sing
which are rude to say the least and
are enough to cause a respectable girl
to blush, and perhaps even some of
the gentlemen who happen to be present. You may say Its up to the leaders, but that's all "bunk." It's up to
us.    I am,
Yours In all sincerity,
0, M. W. Arts '28.
"GOD SAVETHE KING"
Varsity. March 9, 1925.
Editor,  "Cbyssey,"
Dear  Sir:
Having al tended all the big debates
of the last two years there Is on"
Couture of them on which I would
like lo comment. That Is the singing of the National Anthem.
In regard to the singing of the National Anthem---what a wonderful Idea
of our college pep ami spirit our debating visitors must carry home with
them!     The   result  of   the  debate  Is
announced—loud cheers or rather
clapping—general grabbing of hats
and coats and shoving toward the
aisle, (hen the first chord of "God Save
the King" Is struck and there la a reluctant pause, while a few who have
spirit (probably outsiders) sing It
through. I should think we might attempt It with at least as much gusto
as we do any college song of which
we may know, neither the words, nor
the tune.
Thanking you,
Just a Nobody.

Mr. Wood Pleased
With Spring Play
In an Interview graciously granted
by the much harrassed director of the
Players' Club, recently, a few Interesting final details concerning the Spring
Play were gleaned.
"In very way," declared Mr. Wood,
"I consider that this should be the
record performance of the Club, making Insignificant its i revlous efforts.
None of the former plavg haw- appealed to the director and cast in the
whole-hearted fashion that this one
has done. 'Mr. Pirn Passes By' Is
perhaps Its nearest rival. There Is
something so attractive about each of
the seven people that the weeks spent
with them In rehearsals have been
times of pleasant intercourse rather
than seasons of boredom that must be
endured. Not only Is the story Interesting, the humor bright and dialogue-
unusually brilliant, but also the two
settings excellently sustain the atmosphere, and the costumes are things
of beauty, Members of the cast have
shown keen Intelligence throughout,
and have worked zealously, so that
it will be a great surprise if they do
not win a large place in the affections
of the five thousand who see them
next week In Vancouver after the preliminary performances this week in
New Westminster and Nanalmo. The
(day should go most smoothly on the
occasion of Its severest test—before
the college audience,
"On the whole," concluded the director, " 'You and V Is a very fitting
vehicle in which to celebrate ten years
of pleasant associations and serious
efforts on the part of the college students to produce worth while plays.
Moreover, during all these years, the
whole-hearted sympathy and loyalty
ol Ihe student body has been one of
tiie sources of inspiration to the Player's Club and it is sincerely hoped that,
the newer students will fall into 111 e
in the long-established precedent of
turning out en masse to see the Spring
Play."
Regular seat coupons are now procurable at the Orpheum Box Olllce
without the formality of exchange tickets.

Important Offices
Still To Be Filled
Wish the election or ihe president
of the Students' Council now a thing
or the past, the main political event
of the season is over. There are, however, many Important offices yet to be
filled and students are er.Jolned to exercise Just as much care in the use
of their franchise with respect to
these positions as they did In the
other case.
Everybody knows that there Is to
be h now office on the Students' Council; viz.: President of the Men's Undergraduate Society of the U. B. C,
but not everybody knows that Walter
Turnbull and quite probably Tommy
Taylor, are contesting this position.
Walter Turnbull, Arts '28, is past president of the Literary and Scientific
Department, and Tommy Taylor also
'26, Is loo well-known for us {o be
able to say anything very derogatory
of him.
Candidates on the mat for treasurer of the Students' Council are:
William Bain, Sc. '26 and possibly
McKechnie Cup Johnson, Sc. '27.
The two Science men's characters in
detail can be ascertained from any
member of  that  faculty.
There Is no change In the nominations for Secretary of the Students'
Council, as Dorothy Brown, Arts '27
and Russell Palmer, Arts '26, are, as
stated last week, running at a popular
speed for this position.
As regards candidates for president
of the Women's Undergraduate Society, and for president of Women's
Athletics, the statements made last
week are reiterated. Lenora Irwin
and Alfreda Berkeley both Arts '2fi;
and Flora Musgrave, Winona Straight,
both Arts '26 and Jean Ollley Arts 27,
are candidates for these respective
offices.
Harry Purdy'a name is being mooted for the presidency of the Men's
Athletics, while Lever Rates, Arts '27,
famous Canadian Rugby artist, Is definitely in the field. F. Guernsey, Sc.
'2B president of soccer club, and Charlie Mottley, the Arts '27 president and
star distance man, have also entered
their names for this olllce.
Students should be on the alert for
election meetings and make a point
of hearing the candidates even if they
don't understand then), for sonu of
th" remarks at the meet ing.-s tire almost  humorous.
ARTS '28 PARTY
Last Friday evening, the Freshmen
staged their big event of Ihe year in
the form of a very successful class
party at Lester Court. It reminded
one of Ihe Frosh Reception in two
respects, namely, the crowd and the
number of upper year idtulents who attended. Still, what Is the use of a
good party If the latter aren't there
to pass Judgment.
The decorations were exceedingly
tatUeful and showed a lot of hard
work on the part of the decoration
committee. Around the hall were
placed huge tulips, beautifully made,
which, when Pt up, suffused all with
a rosy glow. Serpentine was strung
from baicony to halcony, and In the
middle was stretched a huge flag,
weighted down with a load of balloons.
Across the orchestra balcony 'Arts
'2S was printed In blue and gold tissue
paper.
The temptation caused by the sight
of dormant balloons was too strong,
so a? the end of tin t.ecotid dance, the
ting was loosened, and the balloons
quickly grabbed. Ily the lime the last
of these had breathed Its one last
gasp, II wiih time for Niippo-,% so the
crowd Joined In making a mad rush
toward the supper room. Here there
were excellent sandwiches, cake, coffee and favors awaiting the dancers.

LITERARY CORNER
SONNET
(As a suggest Ion for a Maxfled Punish
Painting).
There Is a perilous city of my dreams
The phantom city of a feudal race,
Where ghostly sentinels forever pnee
A parapet still painted with the gleams
Of long-forgotten twilights. Silence
seems
To bold the city with a strong embrace ;
The purple shadows play about its
base,
And   overhead   the  dying  sunset
streams.
I cannot tell If any throng frequents
The Temple Gate;   nor what glim
overlord
The castle hides.   Only the warders
move,
Larger   than   men,   upon   the   battlements;
And one red gleam of sunset hangs
above
The silence of the city like a sword.

Travelling Team Tells
Of Modern Methods
At the beginning of the academic
year, the Forensic managers of Oregon Agricultural College pick out two
or three subjects for the debating
programme. This year they are the
Referendum Question, the Supremacy
of the Supreme Court, and Japanese
Immigration, They had already had
half a dozen debates on the Japanese Question when ours fell due. It's
a mystery to us how audiences can
be supplied under those circumstances—but they are. The Issue then
lies— to the audience—simply in the
opposition of the two colleges.
The sixteen students In the debating squad are then ready to take on
as many challenges from other institutions as they can gel—having these
three prepared subjects to offer. Their
debating record Is a splendid one,
largely as a result of the perfectly
running organization behind their de-
bales programme On getting a place
on the Inter-Collegiate debating squad,
a student wins a sweater; if II is his
or her second debate the award of
membership and the pin of the Honorary Debating Frat. (which Includes
girls).
This is all about (). A. t'.'s Forensic
Department. We were taken over the
Department after a luncheon given us
by Ihe Honorary Debating Frat Psl
something (we can't remember what).
There is a Forensic Lab.—a soundproof room about the size of the Pub.
A large mirror is on one wall, and
the budding orator stands before It
and Is then able to watch his gestures.
Two or three of the Coaches there are
eight of them—they are really professors of the Forensic Department),
sit at one side, marking the speaker.
At the same time a phonograph record
Is made of the speech, so that the
rate of words per second may be ascertained. The Gettysburg address
was on the disc when we were there,
we noticed. Such efficiency we never
saw or heard of before.
Rebuttals wllh them are Just as matter of fact as the opening speech.
There In little of the lire and the personal element that Is so evident with
us, lor the refilling remarks are all
prepared beforehand. We were criticised hy oni of the Judges privately
after thi> debate, for not having n
"card index" type of mind,
Everything runs as perfectly us modern science and Invention can make
It. One might as well look for spontaneity In an adding machine. The
system effects wonders—bit! we Just
aren't made that way.

of Crees, Gibbard and Robertson, tin1

played systematic football, their centre half distributing the ball with remarkable precision. Their only goal
came near the end of this period when
Ihe outside right whizzed the ball

After light refreshments the B. C.

KNOWS HOW
Secrets Of Successful Fussing Told
By Xerxes In Interview With Himself
SIS HASTINGS ST., W.       Seymour 70?
"Say." said K A. \ poking tils
head In at the door, "when are you
going to start to do some work around
this paper, Xerxes?"
"When am I what?" I replied, "I
do more work on this blinking rag
right now than the editorial staff,
business staff and reporters, added
together, and multiplied by the square
of inflnity."
"Yeh, you do. You mean you work
the staff more. You got Elsinore to
write up the smoker for you while
you went to high Jinks, and she got.
everything mixed up, and I have been
explaining And apologizing to the faculty ever since. Either you get something done or else the Pub. can do
without you.    That's tiiat,"
"Well, what do you want me to do?
Another election article?'"
"No, for the love of mud, no. That
last thing of yours got us Into enough
trouble. Tell you what, get an Interview with some prominent roan around
the college. That'll fill up space, and
It can't do us much harm. 400 words,
Monday noon, g'bye."
That was yesterday, and after due
consideration I decided this morning
to fill the assignment. The prominent man I '.vould interview was myself.
There were two reasons other than
♦hat of pure worth that decided me on
this choice. The first was that I was
very easy for myself to find, and the
second was that I was the only person I hadn't had a light with recently,
Hereto appended Is the Interview.
I have heen asked by one of the
brightest of your reporters to give an
Interview on "What are the means by
which I have attained my well-known
and remarkable fascination for women." Realizing as I do the Importance of the subject, I feel that it is
only fair that I should share my knowledge with the world.
The most successful of my many
methods has been the cave man stunt.
By showing off my manly strength at
all times I win their admiration and
respect, I generally do this by winning an important boxing houf, which
neeessltntes about two weeks of Intensive (mining, and a bribe of anywhere from fifty cents lo live dollars ftiii< 1 to my opponent. And Ihe
pleasure of having a beautiful woman
look up into my eyes and say, ''My,
Xerxes, but you're strong," is marred
by   tender  thoughts  of   the  cash  I've
spent that will never come back to
me.
A good variation of this Is Indifference. As the immortal poet Burns
says In his famous "Chllde Harold"
"Seek not the favor of women, so
shall you find It Indeed." I have tried
this method with pretty fair success.
I ask the woman what made her think
she had any brains anyway, or beauty
either, for that matter, I tell her that
she Is a O.O.M. (God's only mistake),
lazy, good-for-nothing, and a blight
upon the face of the earth. Sometimes this method works. But sometimes it doesn't. For Instance, I tried
It on the Senior Editor, and It was
nearly a week before 1 got out of the
hospital.
The other line to work Is the coll
of like unlo like. You tell her you
don't think much of co-eds as a general rule, and that a brainy person
like yourself Is never attracted save
by super-intellectual being like herself. At that, however, It Is only her
ravishing beauty that keeps you at
her feet. This method Is very orude,
and I ihave only found It effective
among women members of the second year.
One trick I have found fairly good
Is in connection with clasa draws. Before the draw lot It get generally
known that you are in one of tihose
Insurance schemes to give a box of
chocolates to the woman drawing the
handsomest man. Then, after the
draw, with all becoming modesty, go
out and buy a box and give It to her
in a shy manner. You may get away
witth it, I generally do!
Never take a girl to a dance In a
taxi. Take her In a street car, and
explain that even though you have
an inheritance of half a million dollars just received, you don't want It
known, as you Intend to save most
of it for one big splash after you get
married. This method is exceedingly
raw, and only works on freshet tea.
If you must kiss a girl, don't do it
well. Try to keep your amateur
standing as long as possible, for It Is
your greatest asset. In conclusion,
and finally, never make direct love
to a girl. That is an Insult to her
intelligence, On till personal matters

Seymour Climbed
By Outdoors Club
On Sunday, March 8, thirteen members, led by Hazen Nunn ascended Mt.
Seymour,
The party consisted at first of four
women and eight men. The unlucky
thirteenth overtook the party half-way
up the mountain. His trusty alarm
clock failed to do Its duty.
Although weather conditions were
none too good, the trip was a success.
It snowed most of the way up. Snow
was soft in drifts but so crisp In other
spots that steps had to be cut. This
made travelling slow so that the party
reached the Peak at 3:15 p.m. After
(Ween minutes for lunch, the party
stinted homeward.
Much enjoyment wns experienced on
the way down. Some good glissading
was Indulged In. In sliding down the
ley slopes, one would sometimes end In
a drift OTTfKrft snow and emerge looking like a darkey plasterer but feeling
very much otherwise,
Despite the unlucky number, no mishaps occurred for everyone of the
party arrived home safely, sorer but
wiser,
