Stormy Scenes at
A.M.S. Meeting
The A. M, 8. meeting on Wednesday proved to be a real storm session,
whoa many and diverse opinions were
expressed on the plan of building a
gymnasium from student funds. On
the whole, however, the student body
is strongly in favor ot the proposal
and ratified the policy of the Student's
Counoil by * very large majority. The
amendments to the Constitution of the
Alma Mater Sooiety were passed almost unanimously.
Constitutional Amendments
After the minutes of the laat meeting
had been read and adopted, President
Oliver read the list of the amendments. He outlined, the change that
would be effective and showed what
an improvement would be made by
such a change,
Under the new system all Oounoil
offleea except thet of president are
toted for on the same day. The presidential office is to be filled at a separate' voting to take place one week
sooner than the general counoil elections. During the week between the
election of the president end tbe election of the other Counoil members,
campaign meetings will be held every
day. the total number of campaign
meetings to be the same as under the
old system. The advantages of this
system may be briefly stated:
(1) A candidate may run for only
. one Council office besides that of president. This should make it certain that
the best man will run for each office
and the man most interested ln that
office, and should cut down office-
seeklna^ considerably.
(3) Tbe concentration of attention
Upon one week of campaign meetings,
A and one day of elections, will save
time, valuable because of the proximity of exams; it will also ensure a
more widespread use of the franchise.
There was a certain amount of discussion pro and con. President Oliver
Stated that the Council recommended
that the amendment be passed. In response to a call for a representative
from the Ubyssey, the originator of
fhe new plan, Mr. Sinclair, spoke briefly in defense of the motion. The motion was passed unanimously, with the
valuable amendments moved by Mr.
Allison Maxwell, that voting be from
ten o'clock ln the morning to four In
the afternoon, Instead of from ten to
three as heretofore.
Gymnasium  Plan Approved
Tho gymnasium question was hotly
discussed, though It was evident from
the outset that the student body would
ratify the scheme suggested by the
Students' Council.
Mr. Oliver put the matter before the
students and Invited discussion. The
proposal was that the Alma Mater Society borrow money from the Provincial Oovernment to build a gymnasium
and Women's Union building. To pay
tlie Interest on such a loan and retire
tbe principal, the A. M. S. fee would
have to be raised three dollars. This
would put approximately forty-five
hundred dollars extra ln the hands of
the Students' Council, and this sum
would be sufficient to carry the additional burden.
The sum of ninety thousand dollars
was suggested as a possible loan from
the government. This amount would
build a seventy-five thousand temporary gym on a permanent foundation,
and a fifteen thousand dollar Women's
Union Building. The yearly burden of
forty-five hundred dollars would retire tho principal ln fifty years,
The Council did not ask for a student decision on the sum Itself but
on the proposed plan as a matter of
Srlnclple, the details to be worked out
y a committee and ratified by the
students later. The whole plan has
been accepted by the Board of Governors but the carrying through of the
plan Is, of course, contingent upon
the willingness of the Oovernment to
loan the money at the tentative rate
of four and one-half per cent.
After thus explaining the scheme,
President Oliver asked for student
opinion on the subject. Certain cautious ones were In favor of borrowing
less money, paying lt off sooner and
being satisfied with cheaper accommodation during this time. Those favoring the proposed plan said that, such
a small gym would be of little use,
and so tbe money would be wasted.
FOUR THOUSAND TO
SEE SPRING PLAY
White clouds drifting across the
blue sky of a Spanish evening;
myriads of stars that actually twinkle,
and a moon that is startlingly roal
are some of the sights to be seen in
"The Romantic Young Lady" next
week. The Players' Olub have gone
to great trouble and expense in sending to New York for elaborate apparatus, whioh will depict the whole of
a summer thunderstorm. Lightning
flashes across the black sky, and
thunder rumbles, Rain pours down in
torrents. Then as the storm blows
over the stars appear and the sky
dears to show the new moon as a
fitting background for the romance
whioh ensues.
Costumes and scenery rival the
lighting. The color Schemes of the
drawing-room and office scenes have
been carefully prepared, while the
costumes consider the personality of
eaoh individual actor, from the vivid
red oreation, which is worn by the
Spanish dancer to tbe soft lavender
silks and laces of the dainty grandmother.
Join the noon-hour line-up at the
Auditorium Box Office. There are
still good seats left for this most
entertaining comedy of the season.
Dr. Chu Gives Talk
on China
An Interesting meeting of the Student's International Club was held on
Thursday evening at the Gables Tea
Rooma. Or. P. Y. Chu gave a most
interesting talk on the problems of
modern China.
Dr. Chu divided his subject Into
five main topics: Extra-territorlality;
Spheres of Inluence; Customs (tariffs); Anti-foreign; and Anti-Christ-
Ian.
The speaker applied these subjects
to the Nationalist Movement and its
aims. "It was not anti-Christian, he
said, "because many Christians were
joining the movement; neither was
It against all foreigners ln China."
"The Nationalist Movement Is the
sign of a new ora in China. It does
not wish to drive the foreigners out
of China, but to get back China's
sovereign rights. They do not wish
to seize the fine buildings in the concessions, but desire that they he
allowed to pollen the foreign concessions, and attend to the civil administration, Only live cents on every
dollar of taxes collected by the foreign
powers go to tho government of
China. How is lt possible for China
to have a stable form of government
without sufficient funds?"
Dr. Chu is an ardent Nationalist
and his address, which explained the
Chinese point ot view, was moat enlightening to the audience.
After the address those present
were given the opportunity to discuss the subject with Dr. Chu aad
amongst themselves, during which
time refreshments were served.
Mr. Whlteley showed that if sixty-six
thousand dollars were borrowed twice
a saving of thirty-six thousand dollars would be effected. The whole
question in how good a gym is required now, and how the Investment
might best be made to achieve the
greatest permanent results with as
little wastage as possible.
The ratification of tho prlnclplo that
the A. M. S, borrow the money and
that future students be assessed to
pay for the loan was unanimously passed upon a motion by Mr. Whlteley.
After this essential point had been
reached, a motion was made that discussion continue. The value of this discussion was merely that of giving students a chance to nlr their opinions
for the benefit of the committee which
will go Into the matter. This committee to be appointed by Council,
will go Into the matter thoroughly,
and make a recommendation to the
A. M. 8. Society. It Is then that a
discussion a« to the exact terms of
the loan will be Important.
The aim for which the meeting was
called was thus attained, that Ih, the
decision to raise the A. M. S, fee to
ten dollars, and, If the government
consent to build a gymnasium with
student funds and under student Initiative.
Whiteley Discusses Gym. Funds
Bdltor, "Ubyssoy."
Dear Sir:
After the Alma Mater meeting of Wednesday I feel that a dearer
exposition of my arguments may perhaps lead to a saner dlsousslon ot the
gymnasium question, free trom grandiose schemes divorced from an Intelligent expenditure of public funds. I will therefore state two schemes, A (as
given in previous "Ubyssey") and B.
A.   60 year student levy of $8 equals $4,600 x 50 or $185,000.
Women's building   $ 15,000.00
Permanent foundation of gym     15,000.00
Building of gym (50 yr.)     60,000.00
Total extent of loan     90,000.00
interest charges   186,000.00
Total amount to be raised by levy  $825,000.00
These figures are of course estimated, but will be used as a basis in both
schemes.
B.   26-year student levy of $8 equals $4,600 x 26 or $112,500.
Women's building  „ $ 15,000.00
Permanent foundation of gymn    15,000.00
Building of gymn (25 yr.)     86,000.00
e  ii 11 »■—■■——s
Total extent of loan  66,000.00
Interest charges       46,600.00
Total amount to be raised by levy $112,600.00
Now at the end of the 25 yeavs, lt it wore advisable, the levy oould be
continued and another loan of $66,000 secured to be devoted to a more lasting
structure on the permanent foundation.
Second 26-year levy of $3 equals, $118,600.
Gymnasium building (50 yr. plus)  .....$ 66,000.00
Total extent of loan     66,000.00
Interest charges     46,600.00
Total amount to be raised by levy $112,600.00
It will thus be seen that by the same Investment of $226,000 ln scheme
A, a straight 60 year period, and ln scheme B two periods of 25 years eaoh, a
gain is made by using plan B. It is distributed as follows*. Saving in interest
chorges, $40,000; increased value of second gymn, $6,000; and lastly in plan
B the total life of the gym is 75 years as compared with 60 in plan A.
What I wish to demonstrate by thes^ somewhat involved calculations is
simply that by making the periods of repayment as short as possible there is
an Immense saving in Interest charges, and also that by economising at the
start lt is possible to secure tar greater value for the money raised.
Yours sincerely,
A. S. WHITELEY, Arts '28.
Track Stars to
Meet Washington
Varsity track men will face stiff opposition when they meet the University of Washington on March 19th, according to Coach Granger who spent
two days with Coach Hec Bdmundson
in Seattle. The Washington toam will
he strong In almost every department,
and their strong points as at B. C will
he tho middle distances and the two
mile run.
Varsity has two or three men who
will make the going hard for any men
that the Huskies can produce even the
great Klser winner ot tho United
States inter-scholastlc 880 and mile
title at Stagg field last June. Harold
McWIlllams, Bill Selby, Maurice Des-
brlsay, Carl Barton and Bert Bailey
are fast shaping up In their workouts
and it the Varsity record does not fall
below the 4.40 this year the boys will
all have broken logs. Considering the
fact that tho Varsity team will have
two meets at their back when they
assail the Varsity record everything
points to a mark of 4.30 or better. This
Is probable only If the Brockton Point
track is in good condition and it will
be up to the track meu to see that the
Parks Board put work on lt. They
will need the usual coaxing but It must
be done. It is not fair that men should
work hard all year and then have their
record breaking chauces spoiled by a
miserable track.
In the 440 yards It is going to be a
great battle and al' tho men are Intent
on making close to the 50 flat mark.
The three men who look out as strong
contenders are Burgess, Mottley and
McKay. Mclntyre and Taylor and
Ilrown will also be tn the running but
It is hard to believe that any one of
them can match strides with tho first
three mentioned. Burgess is the hope
and pride of the fiery haired one to
carry away high honors at Washington
this year. He beat Bill Shelley his lap
In the Washington Relays last year
and looks good to touch the 50 mark
this year, Burgess can step a 220 in 28
or even bettor time and that makes
him a fast mua to beat. Mottley still
ranks among the best that can count
speed as his middle name and one can

Stanford Professor to
Visit U.B.C.
Mr. Eliot G. Mears, Professor of
Geography and International Trade ln
the Stanford Graduate School of
Business, Is planning to visit the University of British Columbia on Tuesday, March 22. He would be glad to
meet any studon's—sclentiflc and
technical, as well as liberal arts
majors—-who are looking forward to
taking graduate work in business
either at Stanford or elsewhere.
Mr. Moars is, himself, a graduate of
the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration; was for four
years a member of Its faculty, and is
one of the original members of the
Stanford Graduate School of Business.
He was connected with the U. S.
Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce for four years, first as Chief
of the Foreign Service Division, and
later as American Trade Commissioner in the Near East.

the technical or commercial course.
Tho debate was of extraordinarily
high order, the University students
winning by one point with the score
of 166.

C.P.S. Debaters
Defeat Varsity
The Puget Bound debaters woa a
very close victory over U, B, 0. OS
Monday night when the two oollefee
met for their second forensio eaopmv
ter. The visitors successfully shewOd
that "Mussolini has evolved the 1*1$
form of government la Ooattaeataf
Europe to-day."
Both of the Puget Sound debater*
began by stating briefly what pouts
they intended to cover, and, by keeping a very logical plan always before
their audienoe they left a vivid sequence ot arguments fit the minds of
the listeners. Miss Mildred Hawk-
ridge tbe flrst speaker on the affirm*
tire, maintained that Mussolini holds
the confidence of the Italian nation
and the needs of the people. She then
quoted statistics to show the uoreaie
in Italian trade and commerce aad
the economic stability built up by
Mussolini out ot the chaos left by tho
war
Miss Kathleen Baird, the leader of tjae
negative .gave aa very Ulluminatlig
review of the history Of Fascism,
stressing particularly Mussolini's
wholesale repression of all demooraUe
institutions and his absolute sttpV
preeston of all non-Fascist pubUea*
tlons. She concluded her speech Witt
the very effective query "Where will
Italy be when Mussolini is gone*"
Although apparantely nervous Mlsa
Baird spoke eloquently and to the
point.
Miss Lillian Burkeland's speech was
a continuation, on exactly the sane'
lines, ot that ot her colleague. She
enlarged on the defeots of mass democracy and the necessity for a attqaf
aotooratio ruler, and favorably compared Italy's present fluancial and
economlo condition with that of
France and Germany. Her summary
was very orderly and her manner
pleasing. Both of the American flrjs
spoke entirely without notes aad
showed very careful preparation.
Their speeches were models ot orey
tory although the weakness of Mlas
Burleland's final rebuttal left room
for the opinion that some ot the credit
for their eloquence is due to a very
efficient coach.
Miss Margaret O'Neil's first appearance in intercollegiate debates was
very creditable. She is blessed with
a very keen sense of humor and a
playful yet biting trick of mimicry,
which made her arguments both vivid
and forceful. She shed much Illumination on the great Italian's high-handed
electoral and Judical tactics. Sho
concludod her speoch by showing how
vastly superior the Swiss Government
is to the Fascist.
Miss Baird's rebuttal was concise
and forceful, but the thorough preparation of the visitors won for them
two out of the three votes. While
the judges were making their decision
the Musical Society Orchestra gave 0
very pleasing rendering of the Herd
Girl's Dream.

Bert Bailey Discusses
Religion on Campus
There are at least eighty students
ln the University who are Indebted
to Bert Bailey for having dealt with
the question of "Religion on the
Campus." Bert addressed the meeting
last Tuesday as an observer of student opinion and not as an advocate
of any one type of religion. Ho carefully outlined four different kinds of
religious thought ranging from orthodoxy to entire disregard for splrltial
values. Fortunately, he said, these
categories have no well defined
boundaries as it Is undesirable that
students should be branded Just because some phase of truth appeals to
them more than another. In closing
the speaker urged the 8. O. M. to keep
in close touch with the interests aad
needs of students everywhere.
"Student Participation in Promoting Nationalism" or some subject akin
to this will be presented next Tuesday, at the usual place and hour.
Mr. Brace, the speaker, is a Y. M. O. A.
secretary who has been in China tor
16 years. Let's give our attention to
a man who can provide a full meaaure
of Information about the vast Republic. .**

THE VALEDICTORY GIFT
Ths matter of the valedictory gift again faces the graduating
olssses, and we wish to suggest what is, to our mind, an appropriate
form for that gift. We offer for the consideration of the committee in
Sharge, the idea of presenting to the university, a "continuing" Roll
Of Honour to record the names of all men who have heen, are now, or
will be in tbe future, students at the university. This plan has been
followed with success at other colleges in Canada; and, in this case,
Presents no difficulties in the way of compiling the names, for the
Authentic ,(Record of Service" has collected all necessary data. The
only memorial tablets whioh have been prepared heretofore carry the
lea of none but those students who left, after attendance at univer-
r\:$$t the front. The memorial we suggest would provide for the
lectiption of the names of all men who, having served in the late war,
its later become enrolled as students in this university.
FURTHER DIFFICULTIES
It is again our duty to take the student body to task for mis-
(demeanours; but in bringing the following matters to its attention we
are aware that the blame for them does not rest on all of its members.
The first is this t the Librarian by reason of the amount of ink that is
being spattered on the tables, and even on the walls of the Library, has
placed notices on every table in the concourses, in which he asks students to be more careful of the Library and hints that in the event of
additional stains, ho will endeavor to have the use of ink and fountain
peas prohibited from the Library. In reference to such carelessness,
We have little more to say than what ought obviously to be said. The
students who deface the Library are assuredly strangers in a land
that is not theirs? they are fow in number and have their reward in
the contemplation of their own handiwork.   In referenco to the minor
Siilnt, however, namely *. the Librarian expressed intent of prohibiting
k, although we are not certain that the Librarian would ohoose to
mote out to all students the punishment proper to a few, we are
confident that any such attempt on his part would have a sure
outcome: it would be unsuccessful.
The second matter, (which implicates a greater number of students), is this: last Friday afternoon in a known case, no less than
Sight lecturers in the lower floor of the north wing of the Arts Building
were unbearably interrupted by noise in the hall. The uproar, proceeding from loitering students of no occupation, who had not even
any business to be conversing in the hall, made it impossible for the
lecturers to be heard, This is not the first occasion upon whioh we have
had to deal with the nuisance of noise, and we are optimistic enough to
know that it will not be the last time, yet we should like to feel that
mention of the disturbance would end it for this term. Apart from
the patent discourtesy to a faculty which is never fastidious about
discipline, it is wholly unfair to fellow students. Some have suggested
that the Students' Court of next year will do away with the pest.
The finding of our diagnosis, however, is that the fault is in the students themselves, in that general class of students who are too heedless
to be courteous, and in that particular type of student who thinks that
the University is a playground for emancipated children.
INTERNATIONAL CLUB
Under the auspices of the Students'
International Club, a party to the
Chinese Theatre is being arranged for
to-night, Friday, March 11th. An excellent troupe has just arrived from
China and the programme will be of
the greatest interest. After the
theatre, supper will be served at a
Chop Suey House. A special cut of
half price is being given the students
by the manager of the Theatre. Admission is 50 cents. All wishing to
come kindly hand their names In at
the table In the men's hall this noon,
or give them to Miss Allhan, Miss
Hurst, Mr. Jacob, Mr. Meredith. The
party will meet at the B. C. Electric
station, Carrall and Hastings St., at
8 o'olook.
SENIOR NOTICE
LA CAUSERIE
A large and very enthusiastic meeting of La Causerie was held at the
home of Miss Muriel Mackay. Mile.
Doriot gave a delightfully informal
talk on French life and customs, illustrating her remarks with several
amusing anecdotes.
Final plans for the Frenoh plays,
to be held on March 26, were made.
Those Interested may obtain tickets
from any member, or at the door.
The following applications for membership In the Club were accepted.
Misses Helen Burton, Doris Clarke,
Juliet Johnson, Kathleen McLuckle,
and Mr, Frank Billot. La Cousevle extends a cordial welcome to these new
members.
At a meeting of the combined executive of the Senior Year, preliminary arrangements were made regarding the various functions to be held
during Graduation Week. Committees were appointed to look after each
event and arrangements are already
well under way. The proposed program will be put before the three
classes at the next general meeting
of the Senior Year to be held on Tuesday, March 16th, at 12 o'clock sharp
in Arts 100. The question of the
Valedictory Gift will again he brought
forward and it is hoped that a definite decision wll be reached. Any
further suggestions in this matter
must be handed In, In writing, to
Miss Margaret Keillor, Jack Berry, or
Stan Oale by Monday, the day before
the meeting. The attendance at these
meetings has been decidedly poor.
Seniors should show some Interest
and get out on Tuesday at 12 -.harp.

had been served.
ARPEGGIO FOR A VIOLIN
Loosen  my  hands:   I  cannot  keep

Why do you ask for promises that

Mortals must die who taste immortal food;
And I can hear behind our fierce protesting
The tinkling mockery of a changing mood.

Editor-in-chief,
tblluatlons Board,
University ot B. C.
Dear Sir:—The Students' Council
wish to oorrect a few statements made
in your Correspondence column in the
issue of March 8th, 1927.
(1) The Senior B Basketball team
came to Viotorla during the Invasion
from Jordan River where they had
played an exhibition game, receiving
a guarantee from Jordan River. No
money was spent from A.M.S. funds
in this connection.
(2) The unfortunate dash between
the McKechnie Cup playoff and a
bridge for the Home Economics Campaign occurred due to the faot that
Council was not notified of the change
of date of the McKechnie Cup final
from March 12th to March 6th, the
former date being given in The Vancouver Daily Province some time before. Arrangements for the bridge
had been made with the later date in
view and an effort was made to avoid
a conflict.
(3) The matter of Big Block sweaters has not yet been definitely decided since the expenditure will be
somewhat heavy (total $260.00). No
action can be taken until the revenue
from several events is definitely dter-
mined. The possibility of an award
next fall is due to the fact that the
proceeds from the Spring Play do not
oome in until after the close of the
spring term, so that next year's Council, in paying for the awards, would
be using this year's revenue for an
obligation Incurred during this term.
(4) The objection to the dressing
room seems to arise from a mis-statement ln The Ubyssey of March 4th,
under the heading, "Meeting of Council." The dressing room will be an
annex to tho new University fireball
and the whole unit is being ereoted
by the University authorities. No
part of the cost will be borne by the
Alma Mater Society. Thus while the
location Is not as convenient as it
might be, we cannot control It, since
we are paying no part of the expense.
(5) In regard to expensive trips of
minor leanm: for other than Inter-col-
leglate events tho greatest amount
charged against the A.M.S. by any
club has been $130.00, the remainder
of the expense having ben defrayed
by guarantees from the various teams
"laved. In Inter-colleglate competition the Tennis team won the Western Canada Intercollegiate Championship and the Swimming team defended the Western Canada Inter-colleglate title.
Yours truly,
KATHLEEN P.  BAIRD.

Editor Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:—This term, I have been
rather faintly amused by the policy of
the Ubyssey. It has been priding itself on its destructive criticism and,
like a youngster on his first adventure, lt Is revelling ln the Idea that It
Is being very wicked. This policy
very evidently seems due to the fact,
that its brilliant staff havo lately been
suffering from a lack of original ideas
and of Interesting material They
have, therefore, devised the ingenious method of printing large editorials
condemning a perfectly normal student body for all crimes Imaginable
and otherwise.
In the last Isue of the paper, the
editor had vowed his Intention to
consider the questions raised hy the
various correspondents. Instead of
this each question was simply dismissed with a flash of sarcasm. In
one Instance tt condemns the song
book and claims that there are many
other songs that would be more suitable, yet It refrains from naming a
single one.
Perhaps It would be n pertinent
question to ask, just what Is the function of a college paper and what role
should lt play ln student activities. If,
as the present editor believes lt is to
be solely an Instrument of criticism,

there is not the slightest excuse for
its existence and student fees that
muBt be paid for Its maintenance are
ruthless extravagance. Every student on the campus from the humblest freshman to the most dignlflod
senior is perfectly competent to criticize existing conditions and he does
so thoroughly. For the past few
weeks the Ubyssey has been a superfluous organ. If in the future it continues this policy instead of trying to
better the university by suggesting
Improvements, lt would be advisable
to abolish the paper and save such a
wasteful expenditure of student fees.
Yours truly,

HELLITORIAL
In spite of Brimstone and Pltoh-
forks, Hell is overcome by Infernal,
apathy. We have told the Devils
Council what to do about lt but they
take no notice. We have slammed the
Scientific Torture Department In
order to get noon-day speakers to
made tbe department more efficient,
but they have done nothing. Our debating department has its flag hanging at half mast. It has not even
succeeded In persuading a Freshman
to walk across the U. B. C. seeded
area. Our Soratchers* Club is entirely superfluous: they never arouse
any enthusiasm ln Hell to speak of.
All they can do Is to ask the Devils'
Council to buy Megaphones to use at
Pandemonium meetings for the promotion ot Cacophonous Outburts. Our
Song Book is rotten; lt aotually has
a decent song in it (p. 23). We all
know that the last verse of Parley
Vous, and also of Mr. Noah are too
mild to be in tbe Book at all.
We offer these asbestos columns as
media for criticism of all acts affecting Hell. If none la forthcoming, we
shall supply the deficiency. If our
share of brimstone is kept from us
we hope to derive a vicarious pleasure
from seeing others swallow the dose.

Editor, Hellussay,
Dear Sir:
I quite realize that In thus daring to
criticize, I am laying myself open to
the sulphuric satire with which your
brilliant editorial sees fit to "answer"
critics.
You again launch Into an attack on
the mentality of your readers. (You
find that easy, don't you).
Tho flrst article or two were Interesting but the rest have failed to
reach their objectives. Certain organizations in these regions have
not received sufficient publicity.
For example, the Styx Engineering Discussion Club received no mention of the Interesting talk ou all sorts
of damns, given by Pluto.
Your "Lets be Devils" article evl
dently expresses the opinion of the
Staff, and for that reason I object to
It. Your poem, "We'll Cop the Pitchfork" is exceedingly mushy and can
only be compared to a pan of tepid
dishwater.
A change is desired ln the policy of
your paper.

Mr. B. L ZEEBUB
Candidate fer President of the Devil's
Counoil.
Mr. B. L. Zeebub has thrown his hat
in the ring as candidate for President
of the Devils' Council. He announces
the main planks of his platform as
follows:
I am net ln favor of the initiation
of new-comers as carried on ln tbe
past, feeling that this year, in particular, it has been a failure. We should
have a big, serious ceremony based
upon the aboriginal rites set up in this
district. I am entirely in*favor of the
Fundamentalists' idea of initiation
with plenty of fire, brimstone and
pitchforks.
I think that we should have some
sort of gymnasium for the imps to exercise themselves. At the present time
some of them cannot even handle a
shovel properly, let alone a pitchfork.
t strongly favor Inter-Hades competition, where the different zones and
Llmboes can get together. I think,
however, that expenditure should be
curtailed as much as possible.
It teems that the devils and other
Inhabitants desire a full«r knowledge
Of revenues and expenditures, On account of the recent Influx of swindlers and grafters into these parts, I
would hold myself responsible for a
complete financial statement every
century.
I unreservedly support a National
Federation of Wickedness comprising,
Purgatory, Chicago and the Men's
Common Room.
I promise my supporters that I will
behave like a perfect devil on every
possible occasion.

HELL BLANKS EBLIS
IN CUP FINAL
SCORE 23-0
Way back ln 1834 a historic piece
of iron-ware reposed in the saered
precincts of Hell. Today It la back
on the brimstone, and all the little
devils who tote sinners up to this end
of the wild pit are devilishly happy.
Some weeks ago a Heil team with
all the hoof marks of again losing the
Brimstone Cup, tramped off the cln
dars on the small end of a M87-0 soore.
How times have changed! The Bells
team were shoveled In submission on
Saturday and the Rugby fiends all
know that Kbits faced a better team
and lost The points stood 13-0. To
Samson and Ananias the team owes
all Its success. They raked Hell for
a team and made it turn out in all
sorts of hot weather. They made the
Hell team work like biases and only
with this magnlfioent showing could
they have sent the trophy to Hell.
The game Saturday was one of the
hottest and most brilliant that lt has
ever been the pleasure of the Hellhounds to witness. Things started
with a rush. Every devil played well
but the playing of Brutus and Bismarck waa particularly hot stuff. Brutus scored five tries white Bis. scored
tour. All the other players came up
to old scratch.
The first score came thirty-seven
minutes after the opening when Baal
took a pass from Robespierre and
streaked like the devil for the llne.At
that the rooters led by Old Harry
broke into wild howls,

Senior B Basketers
Lose to Crusaders
Tbe Senior B men lost tbe flrst of
their two game series for tbe city
championship when they went down
to the Crusaders, 25—19. The final
game of tbe series is scheduled for
Saturday night at the Y.M.C.A., when
Varsity will attempt to out down the
Crusader lead and win the round.
The Blue and Qold team had some
bad luck when Bill Thomson was injured near the end of the game and
forced to the floor. At that time Varsily was leading by seven points but
the Knights staged a rally and when
the Varsity defence weakened wore
able to run up enough points to make
the final score 25—10 against Varsity.
Up till the last seven minutes of the
game, the tussle looked like a sure
win for Varsity, but tbe sensational
rally lu the last few minutes reversed
the decision.
The course of the game shows that
the teams are pretty evenly matched,
and there Is a good prospect that
Varsity can win the second game and
perhaps cop tho series. The oup for
championship ot the series is at
stake. Perhaps a good crowd of
rooters would turn the trick. Tbe
team certainly deserves whole-hearted
student  Bupport.
The point score: Thomson (4);
MacConnachle, Webster, Swanson (2);
Mclntyre (I); McLean. Huckloy (4);

Dear Sir:
The Board ot Governors haa decided
to establish ten scholarships per year
of $76 each, for a period ot five years,
from the revenue derived from the
Khaki University and Young Men's
Christian Association Memorial Fund.
The flrst awards are to be made this
spring, based on the results of the
final examinations, and sinoe the
scholarships do not appear as yet in
the Calendar, I am Instructed to request you kindly to bring them to the
attention of the student body through
the columns ot the "Ubyssey."
A copy of the offloial wording as It
is to appear in the next issue ot the
Calendar is enclosed.
Yours truly,
H. R. CHRISTIE
Secretary Com on Prises and
Scholarships.
The official wording is as follows:
Tbe sum of $19,000, given to the
XJnlverslty by the administrators of
the Khaki University of Canada, provides a fund whioh has so far been
used to asBlst returned soldiers in
actual need of money to complete
their coureos. Out ot tbe income from
this fund, ten scholarships of $75
each are now to be offered each year
tor a period of five years, beginning
with the spring of 1027. They are to
be awarded, on the results of examinations In the First, Second, and Third
Years ln all faculties, to such returned
soldiers or dependents of soldiers as
have the requisite academic standing;
falling Buch, to the student body at
large, All returned soldiers and all
children ot soldierB of the Croat War
who have any expectation of attaining scholarship standing in these
years should apply to the Registrar
on a special form not later than the
last day ot the final examinations.

Science Team Wins
Inter-Class Rugby
lnter-class rugby was played this
year for the flrst time for three years.
The series was well contested.
Science defeated Arts Sophs on Wednesday, 6-0 In the final.
Arts Sophs provided a surprise
when they entered the finals by beating the Frosh. Without their star,
Harold Mahon, they put up a plucky
fight against Science. But they could
not stand up against the onslaught of
the more experienced Science men.
As Science played with thirteen men,
this probably demoralized the Arts
men from the start.
Sparks scored flrst for Science after
a rush in which nearly all the Science
team handled the ball. Bill Locke
pulled one of the neatest dummies of
the season to score the second try,
single handed. Todd and Baker
showed up best for the Arts men and
were largely responsible for the good
showing made by them.
Bertie Barratt refereed and kept
the game woll ln hand.
