No Temporary
Stack Permits
to Be Issued
Regulations To Cancel Casual Permit.
For Stacks—Increase In Permanent Permit.
Library authorities after three conferences, have made several.change
In the carrel regulations for the session, including the elimination of
temporary permits. They wish to point
out that then change, are to the ad
vantage of the greatest possible number of student*.
The most important change, the refusal of temporary permit., may
arouse criticism. This change has been
made to allow the number of regular
permit, to be enlarged to the greatest
capacity of the stacks. An endeavor
has been made to be fair to all students. Under the old system the
•ggrenlve student received more than
his Share of library prlviliges. Since
the stacks hold only sixty, and since
provision must be made for ir.embrm
of the faculty, the granting of temporary permit, would cause over-crowding, which might prevent the most
deserving student, from enjoying
necessary facilities,
The new rule, are as follows-
1. No  temporary  peunlts  will  bo
2. Book, to be used In the carrels
must be charged at the loan desk.
3. Student, will enter only at the
north-east corner of the loan-desk.
4. Stack permit, mur. be placed on
the glass partition, that they may to

5. Permits used on other than the
assigned day. will be cancelled.
0. Carrel permits allow the following hour.;

access In the evenings.
Student, in Class 1 are urged to
make their applications Immediately
since applications will be filled in the
order received. Honour students must
have their applications initialled by
the heads of the departments involved.
A space will be provided to keep
Class 1 applications separate. Forms
will be available Friday morning,
September 25.
Class 1 students have been granted
two more evening periods a wek, and
free evenings, while Class 2 students
receive one extra period and one
evening. Both the afternoon and evening periods have ben lengthend one
hour, so that they will overlap.
Under these conditions, the stacks
can be used to enablo upper-classmen to study when the reading-room
is crowded.

Statistics Bureau
Reports on Varsity
The Dominion Bureau of Statistic,
today inued its Preliminary Report
on Universities and College's for 1030
showing a university pad. enrolment of 37,400, of whom 33,081 (24334
men and 8,777 women) attended the
full union. Of these, 81 men and
283 women were post-graduate students, the. remainder undergraduate.
a I^Jj^^ diplomas granted.
degree, or licences, 64 doctorates, and
109 honorary doctors' degree.. From
this it i. calculated that 3,500 new
male and 1,300 new female graduates
are produced annually, while 12 per
cent of the mend and 7 per cent of the
women proceed to higher degrees.
The rate is sufficient to produce 3
per cent of university graduates in
the adult population in something
like 50 years, The present proportion
is probably not far from 2 per cent
which is the percentage for the United States.
Financial reports show that the average current cost of a year's instruction in a Canadian university,
(not counting the student's board,
lodging, and other personal expenses
for books, etc.) is about $494. Of this
amount the average student pays $116
in fees, has 3231 paid for him by the
provincial government, 304 paid from
the income of property set aside for
the purpose, and the remaining $53
paid from a number of sources, the
foremost of which is church contributions. In addition to the current
expenditure there is the cost of depreciation on university property
used, the value of which for each
student is 32,745 including lands,
buildings and equipment. Calculating
this, from a record of capital expenditures, to be in the neighborhood of
$100 annually, the total cost to the
university of accommodating a student for a year approaches $600. A
university course lasting four years
costs the university about $2,400 of
which it collects $464, or almost 20
per cent from the student.

.Viscount Cecil of Chelwood. Twenty-eight student, from Great Britain
croned the Atlantic and met with
twenty-four members of International Relations Clubs from United
States and four from Canada.
The conference sessions occupied
several days of the week, discussions
centering in three commissions: What
Follows the Pact of Paris, Disarmament, and International Regional
Organizations. Resolu t i o n s were
formulated and presented at concluding plenary sessions, featured by extended discussion and occasional repartee. Open meetings were addressed
by prominent speakers on topics of
international interest.
One entire day was given over to a
trip to Detroit, including a tour of
inspection of the Ford Motor Company's plant at River Rouge, Michigan. After luncheon at the Detroit
Yacht Club, the delegates were entertained by Mr. and Mrs. Henry
Fore1, in the Rose Garden of
the Ford Estate near Dearborn, Michigan. A number of the American
delegates accompanied the British
representatives to Washington, D. C,

A—" — IM
Pipe and Pen
The Rag's Progress
Work is now commencing on the fourteenth
volume of what they used to call in Fairview
"The Ubeecee." This miniature journal appeared monthly to regale the litterati of those
prehistoric days. Later the issue was boosted
to one, and then to twice a week. Eight pages
of four columns were filled with the prowess
of our stout predecessors. After the trek to
Point Grey a five-column "Ubyssey" emerged
from chaos.
During the last session the "Ubyssey" increased in size, and added a sixth column,
while further increase in size and still another
column this year present the opportunity for
greater Journalistic progress, and allow space
for all activities.
The session is now off to a good start, and
as the recognized vehicle and interpreter of
Student opinion, the "Ubyssey" re-states its
main aims and objects.
1 "To record and to advertise those activities of the student body which shall, in the
opinion of the Publications Board, be considered of legitimate and sufficient news
2 "To offer constructive criticism of acts
and conditions affecting the student body."
3 "To provide students with a medium for
acceptable literary and critical expression."
To live up to these aims and objects is the
steadfast purpose of the Publications Board.
We wish to make clear, however, that so long
aa the university expects us to publish a fair
and impartial newspaper, we intend to exercise the privileges that go with newspaper
publishing, namely "the freedom of the press,"
except when "not for publication" is requested
by those in contact with the paper.
Commercialising Initiation
Initation'haa gone off on rather a queer tack
this year since on looking over the plans for
the Freshman tortures it appears that the
Council Overlords have fallen into the commercial hands of one Bob Brown. The initiation will wind up at Athletic Park where it
is advertised as a special attraction for all and
sundry to attend and bring the financial stuff
the Jheads of the park.
Commercialize is rather a low business
i -again it is of little value except as
loo for the Canadian Rugby Club. The
ten must pay fifty cents for their green
Iw ties and get a ticket for the game at the
rk. The ties cost the newcomers twenty-
' five cents and the other twenty-five, we understand, goes as a donation to Mr. Brown. The
donation seems an unnecessary one in view of
the fact that the attraction of initiation
should be of enough value to Athletic Park
to allow tiie Freshmen in free. Far be it from
us to derograte tiie worthiness of training the
newcomers to attend the games and thus boost
their alma mater spirit but why pay for the
priveleges when the majority of those attending will be performing on the field.
To the senior the initiation is a boring affair,
to the junior it has a bit more interest, but to
the sophomore it is one of great opportunity
to wreak vengance for the treatment suffered
the year before. Thus the Sophs will not mind
paying any sum for the chance to wreak
havoc among the Freshmen ranks. And now
look at the Frosh—what opinion have they if
any? The newcomer usually quivers in his
boots or her slippers as the case may be at
impending ordeal. To suffer the indignities on
the campus and then to parade downtown in
a not too disorderly fashion to give vent to
any exuberance left are fair tactics but to
end the ceremony as a public spectacle is
somewhat of a letdown and also a little hum-
ilating. Thus we advise against the Athletic
Park project.
Initiation has been decreasing in severity at
U. B. C. in recent years, following the present
trend in schools, colleges and universities all
over the continent.
Initiation This year, however, there are
a number of new and objectionable features. I understand that the initiation
proceedings are to be carried out before the
general public at Athletic Park. Last year's
Council refused to consider such an arrangement, and I think the present Council is making a mistake. If there must be initiation, it
should not be made a public spectacle for commercial purposes.
And another thing. There is one stunt pulled
last year that student authorities should check
before it becomes a custom, namely, cutting
[swaths in Freshmen's hair.   Besides being an
"Kla-how-ya," '35 Tuum Est!"   Thus may
be summed up the greeting of the rest of the
University to the Freshman class, couched
cryptically in three languages
Kla-how-ya!     —compressed,  but   powerful.
And now for the translation:
"Kla-how ya" is Chinook for "Welcome" or
"Greetings," or "Glad to meet you"—who does
know the exact meaning? For years efforts
have been made to establish this word firmly
in the undergraduate vocabulary, with the result that editors of the Ubyssey sometimes
greet the new students in editorials entitled
"Kla-how-ya"! Presidents of the Alma Mater
Society often use it in speeches of welcome to
Freshrron, and at Homecoming it is almost
sure to occur in one of the addresses. However, as yet most students never use it except
in the "Kla-how-ya" yell, and the good old
English greetings-—hullo, howdy and harya—
seem in no danger of being displaced in ordinary campus parlance.
"Tuum Est," the motto of the. University of
British Columbia, is variously translated "it
is thine" and, more vigorously, "it's up to
you," I prefer the latter interpretation, but
which is correct I have never Itnown
* *   *
It was unfortunate that the gowned guides
failed to exhibit the sanctum of the scribes to
the touring groups of Freshmen on Monday.
A scene of intense industry had
A Serious been prepared in anticipation of
Oversight    visitors and rehearsals were held.
There sat the Chief in his shirt
sleeves, pipe ablaze, pencil scribbling at a terrific rate. From time to time he barked for a
copy boy upon a certain subordinate, also coat-
less, and experimenting to discover the minimum number of pulls at his pipe per minute
necessary to keep it going, would dash madly
from some place or othef to another place with
a sheaf of paper. Others of the staff were
working at fever heat, too—during the rehearsals.
The Ubyssey is free to air members of the
Alma Mater Society. On Tuesday there
seemed to be some doubt about this, hence
the information. One Freshette
Campus popped into the Pub with open
Rackets purse, apparently prepared to purchase a paper. Upon being informed that this was not necessary, she seized a
copy and started to depart. The full implication of the situation coming home to her, however, she returned for a second copy.
Wild talk was afloat that afterndbn about
the possibilities of selling such things as a
year's library seating accomodation to Freshmen, and one racketeer boasted of having collected several first payments on Ubyssey subscriptions. Such activities are actually dishonest, and I take pleasure therefore in drawing attention to the fact that once the tuition
fee, Alma Mater fee and caution money are
paid, "Tuum Est"—which in this case may be
interpreted "it is thine."
• *   •
If Freshmen are told often enough that they
are men and women, they will soon be convinced of it. Student officials declare that it
is so, faculty members confirm it
Stripping and with such a machinery of
the Gears suggestion at work, great results
should be obtained. The Dean of
Agriculture, however, stripped the gears when
in his welcoming address he spoke of students
as "boys and girls." What is the Freshman to
think about himself now? There is a danger
of mental complexes if he broods like this: "It
seems I am a boy—yet I ought to be a man."
Becoming too self-conscious, he may retire into himself and check the development of his
whole personality; or, in a pathetic effort to
add years, he may take to a pipe and an assertive collegiatism.
When you see a Freshman with a pipe,
therefore, you can conclude that he is in a disturbed mental state, and that probably he has
an inferiority complex.
A perusal of the last issue of the Ubyssey
reveals an extravagant use of the word "college." The Chancellor will open the "college,"
said a front page leading article. On
"College" the sport page there was a reference
to the "Point Grey College." An
editorial announced that "again a new collegiate year opens."
There are certain institutions that are explicitly called "colleges," but I do not think
that the word should be used as a synonum for
"university." It is so used in the popular "college" films and stories, and the connotations
thereby gained are such as to render the word
inapplicable to any institution that claims to
be a university.

more for English Bugby in thi. university than any other individual.
The Chemistry Society was organized in 1916 with Mr. F. Emmons as
president. It is the object of the society to create an interest in the subject, rather than to supplement the
knowledge of the lecture room.
Normally two meetings are held
each month. Of these one is a closed
meeting, held in the home of some
member, at which members of the
society read papers prepared by
themselves. The other is open to all
students Interested, and at It members of the Faculty and chemists
from the city speak.
Membership is open to all students

Dear Sir:
Having been at the University of
British Columbia for les sthan a wejk.
I have not y«t formed very sound
opinions of this University. I can,
however, uy with sincerity that my
first impressions of Vancouver and of
the University of British Columbia
are very .jleasant ones
I would like to convey, through the
medium of the "'Ubysny", to the
Alma Mater Society, and all other
student organizations the best wishes
for a successful nwloii from the Students Union of the University of Alberta.
I feel that for promoilng a spirit of
mutual friendship and common purpose, the Student Exchange Plan is
one of the most effective methods in
un among Canadian universities. Tnb
year thre Alberta students have taken
advantage of the Exchange; and I
hope to take back with me as' many
new idea, and kindly feeling, as my
colleagues will, who ate now attending the University of Toronto.

Takes Road,
Makes Record
With the highest record to date in
number of performances given, and
the lowest in point of deficit, "The
Young Idea" took the road April 24th
last on the Players' Club's annual
spring tour of the province.
Noel Coward's sprightly and brilliant comedy exceeding even that notable success 'Polly With a Past," with
Its total of twenty-five performance.,
was warmly received throughout the
interior. 'We especially appreciated the
cooperation of old grads," said Mr.
F. G. C. Wood, director. "At Kam-

Revelstoke, Kelowna and Summer-
The biggest houn encountered during the trip was In Victoria, where
the club played under the auspices
ot the Victoria Klwanls Club. The
smallest was at Qualicum Beach,
where the diminutive hall only nats
two hundred.
"But," added Mr. Wood. "This was
one of the most pleasing performances
of the trip from the point of view of
the cast and staff. The congeniality
and understanding of the audience
made playing to them fascinating
From thi. friendly community also
came a substantial contribution to
the Stadium Fund, when the Women's
Auxiliary to the Canadian Legion
donated half their .hare of the gate
The cast which went on tour was
the nme as that which played to
Vancouver houn., with the exception of the juvenile lead. The part
of "Sholto" wa. taken in the city
by Alfred Evan.. On tour, by a prearranged plan, Jack Sargent played
thi. part.
The thirteen member, of the cast
ran Into no unpleasant Incident., such
a. the superstitious might have predicted for them. The play, in comparison to last year's ornate and beautiful costume drama, "Friend Hannah," waa easy to produce, a special
nt of scenery having been made.
"More than once," Mr. Wood remarked, "we would arrive at a pl.ee
at five o'clock or later, and be ready
to go on at eight-fifteen."
Traveller, on the C. P. R. train
coming down at the end of the tour
were highly entertained at the burlesque performance which the "Young
Idea" troufce put on, the men taking
the women', parte and vice vecn.
"Altogether," concluded the director,
"with good houn., cordial audiences
and congenial cart, they proved to be
'Good Companions.' Indeed."

The none of this story is a low-
lying suburban locality where excavations are being carried on for a gasometer. For the last few days the
weather had been atrocious. Rainstorm followed rainstorm until the
centre of excavations became flooded. Four men, comprising a night
shift were engaged In operating hand pump, so that work might
be carried on in the morning. One of
the pumps started to leak and one
of the workers nt forth to get some
clay to form a temporary patch.
The hour was just after midnight;
the night extremely dark. After he
had walked a short distance the lantern which he carried blew out .'o
a strong gust of wind. A. the errand
was urgent, the messanger proceeded
in the dark to his destination, obtained the clay and nt out on his
way back.
He had proceeded a few yard, and
after, some difficulty with his shoes,
which always tried to stay behind in
the last mucky footprint, h. heard
the sound of someone's approach.
This was strange as the locality was
Isolated and nocturnal viaitors nonexistent. Stopping to listen, our hero
vainly peered into the inky black?
neu which surrounded him. To his
ears came the swish of olLkln trou-
nr-legs rubbing against one another
Locating the sound, our adventurous
messanger gaped at a Goliath of a
man who stood before him with one
arm extended. The visitor waa at
leaat nine feet tall,
"Hey there!" ahouted the astounded and badly frightened pumper,
"Who are you?"
The gaint made no reply but only
waved his other arm in a beckoning
From this point our story contains a lot of action, the first of which

In the midst of the other three workmen about five ncond. later, he related hi. experience.
After a council of war, the entire
shift nt forth to encounter the gigantic gentleman, but not before two cf
them had suggested suspending operations for the night and Laving for
home. Armed with a piece of two b"
four and a couple ot apades, the warlike party arrived at the apot where
the stranger wa." last encountered.
Peering out of the lamplight Into the
gloom the four adventurer, perceived
the dim outline of the giant. One of
them, braver than the rest, advanced
a step or two and held the lantern
high above his head. Its rsy. revealed

piece nailed to a pole.
Two minute, later four very relieved workmen resumed pumping.

"There ya are," smiled he, "there's

"No," replied I, "the ending isn't

However, we were not allowed to
remain long in our state of indecision.
Spooky Sounds

door a. w. both tried to go through
at once, and the Cafe door L notoriously narrow. Together we started
up the stairs but Emile slipped on the
fifth step, looped the loop, and landed In a sitting position at the bottom of the flight. For a moment the
great man lost control of his temper and the air was blue. I stood with
head bowed in silent adoration before
my distinguished comrade.
"My word," I marvelled, "where
did you learn thon lovely words?"
"Profanity 4," he replied ternly.

As we neared the top of the stairs the

The Hidden Hand
I started, dipped, clutched vainly
at the hand rail, and from that point
onwards events happened too quick*
ly to recount them accurately. I finished my gyrations half way down
the stairs In a spread-eagled position.
Above me Emile stood, rubbing
his hands in silent glee. But he held
his hand up to me as a warning foi'
"Hurry," he hisnd. "We'll catch that
villainous noise together."
Painfully I crawled to the top of tho
stairs, just as painfully I hauled my
protesting joints to an upright position, and still more painfully I started
to proceed on my way with Emile.
"Now," he sighed in my ear, "is the
time for all good men to come to the
aid of the party. Forward to victory."
Saying which, he propelled me In
the general direction of the Auditorium foyer. Up the short stairs we
sped, but on reaching the end of the!
flight we both fell together, struck
down by some unseen force. Valiantly we struggled to our feet and again
the unseen force felled us.
"If. the floor," gasped Emile, who

I did not reply, having no breath

"Aha! Eureka! LaFondal" chortled
Emile. "Look! the floor polisher."
At the other end of tiie foyer the
janitor waa gently piloting the polishing machine up and down.
"I ny," ahouted Emile to the janitor, "does that thing make a whirring sound?"
"Yes," came the answer.
"L it a high pitched whirring

"Yes," replied the pilot of the machine.
"Is it a high pitched whirring sound
that ends in a low gurgle?" came tlie
next question.
"Sure, uhuh, yeah," replied the janitor.
"Then," said Emile, turning to me
and bowing magnanimously, "there Is

Too weary to disagree, I climbed
ndly to my feet, glared balefully at
the offending machine, and tottered
towards the ncred precincts of the
Pub. Reaching my destination in a
state of physical collapse, I sank
thankfully into a chair and commenced to count my bruins. Emile .tireless fellow that he is, crossed the

LOS ANGELES - Talking motion
pictures have definitely entered thc
field of education. This is evidence!
by the four week's cours on educational talking pictures, just opened at
the Los Angeles summer session of
the University of California. The
courn Is designed for teachers, to
acquaint them with the progress that
has ben made in the adaptation of the
talking picture to the classroom. The
course here has been made possible
by two years of intensive renarch and
investigation by a group of the foremost educators in the country. The
courn here is nid by Dean Gordon
S. Watkins, head of tha summer session, to be the first of the kind ever
attempted in an institution of higher
"The University of California summer session in Los Angeles regards it
as a distinct, privilege to pioneer i.i
the field of visual aids to education In
giving the first systematic courn of
instruction with the assistance of talking pictures," nys Dean Watkins.
"The talking picture brings to the
classroom not only the greatest minds
in the field of education but also tho
most recent results of expert renarch
hi the arte and nlences. This now
agency of education has already
proved interesting and stimulating
and therefore adds greatly to tho
effectiveness of the presentation of the
subject-matter. I am confident that
educators everywhere will welcome
our experiment in the larger field of
visual aids to education "
Makn Teaching More Effective
"The technique of applying talking
pictures in connection with educational courses, such as ihon spunsorod
by the University of California summer nnion in Los Angeles has boci
developed along sound, scientific
lines," nys Dr. Marvin L. Darsio,
dean of the college of education cf
the University of California at L03
Angel... "The picture in each ca-e
Is developed to supplement rather
than to supplant the carefully prepared lecture of the expert teacher in
the classroom. My own conclusion
after ning many of the visual aids
to education, is that the talking picture brings the nation's greatest experts to the classroom, thereby making more effective the teaching of the
professor in charge of the courn.
"What L presented through tiie talking picture reprennts material which
cannot be as effectively prennted by
the teacher, and brings to the atudenta the renarches of the greatest

Varsity  Basketball Team  Starts Training
For Coming Season—Students Confident
Can Retain National Crown
Basketball, the .port that brought
the first Canadian Championship to
the University of B. C, is again with
us. In a strenuous series of workouts the Blue and Gold Collegian,
are planning their defenn of the
title, and it will take a good team
to move the Montreal cup from the
Varsity Trophy Cabinet over In the
Library. So far the students have just
about the same lineup as the one
that took the Si Catherine's Collegiate Grads down the line in the Dominion FinaL. Bobbie Chapman is yet'
doubtful regarding his playing on the
oolLge aggregation, but it is likely
that he will again be hissing the erstwhile forwards of the Vancouver and
District League.
Bandy Tervo ha. also sworn to

may relent and once more don hi.

Idle during tha summer. Yesterday
Laurie Nicholson, Bobble Chapman,
Cy Lee and Bob "Long" Osborne went
through a long-drawn workout that
left the boys breathing rather hard.
Another practice has been nt for noon
Saturday and the collegians will set-
tie down to the daily grind next week.
Among the new arrivals there nems
to be some doubt a. to who will and
will not be turning out. Wally Mayers, the former Varsity and Adanac

pons only and that he will refrain

another game will be arranged to fill

While no permanent coach has as
yet been signed on for the nason, several prominent mentors are under
consideration and Lome Falconer, the
hustling manager, hopes to have an
instructor on the job shortly.
Champion Co-ed
Hoopsters Have
Many Vacancies
Freshettes who have read with awe
of the fame of the U. B. C. Basketball girls will have a chance to make
themselves equally renowned. For
the champions of B. C. are this year
a sadly depleted team.
Gladys Munton, Berna Dellert and
Jean Whyte are the only members
still with us. Claire Menton, Thelma
Mahon, and Mary Campbell have
graduated, and Lois Toiurtellotte, although here taking education, will
hot be able to spare the time to play
this year. The probable candidates
from Senior B team to Senior A are
Muriel Clarke/ Andree Harper, Mary
MacLean, Norma Jones, Betty Hicks,
and Violet Mellish.
Track Outlook
Bright Despite
Heavy Losses
Despite the heavy losses incurred
by graduation, the Varsity Track
Club faces the opening event of the
year, the Varsity-Frosh meet, with
hopeful anticipation. Ralph Thomas
will again return to try to lower his
own record in the hundred, and Bobby Gaul will probably again vie with
Jack Curie In the sprints.
Pi Campbell and Tony Osborne, of
basketball fame, are two middle distance stars of note who are again returning. Alf Allen and Ashley Shatford are two other distance men worthy of mention.
In the Field part of the Track and
Field Club, Gordon Root will vie
with Gav Dirom in the pole vault.
Ernie Costain will again run the high
hurdles while Nicol will probably
cop the honors in the javelin.
The high jump will be practically
open since Thornber has left, but
McTavish and Dirom are both strong
The weights events will probably
all go to Dirom, as Glen Ledingham
may not return.
Leo Gansner, last year's president,
is yet uncertain as a competitor
while track has suffered a severe
blow in the loss of Bob Alpen, pole
vault record holder and weight man
of no mean calibre.
However, if the influx of talent Is
as gratifying as last year's the prospects of a successful season are very
Look Good
Prospects tor the coming nason
are bright so far as the Swimming
Club Is concerned. The Club had a
very succesful nason last year and
is now ranked as a sub-major sport.
The bulk of last year's stars Is
back ready to perform better than
ever. Such ducks as Harry Andlson,
the SO and 100 yards, torpedo, BUI
Moffat who specializes in diving and
the 200 yards, Bon Wilson who needs
no introduction in the 100 and 200
yards, Ernie Peden, who prefers the
diving and the breast stroke events,
and Ralph "Lofty" Davis, the peer
of Varsity plungers, are all nt to
cover themnlves with honor and
foam. Jimmy Wilson will swim his
stuff in the "breast" and the "100."
The women's division will be as
strong and dependable as of old.
Margaret Bon will again peerfoftn
in the breaat stroke events, While
Dorothy Bonnie will be the one to
beat in the plunge. In the 90 and 100
yards Varsity will have such consistently good performers as Mary
MacLean and Phyllis Boe. The divers will probably be led by Marion
Sangster and Helen Ferguson, a
Freshette. Laurence Herchmer will
again be seen in the plunge and in
the breast stroke races.
At the moment of writing nothing
definite is known of this year's
Freshmen swimmers. However, rumours have it that there is considerable talent amongst the newcomers.
We hope to see some of them in
action soon.
The coaching for this coming nason will be in the expert hands of
Don Lyman or Norman Cox. The
former attended Varsity last year and
the latter is prominent in Vancouver
swimming circles.
The prospects of the Women's
Grass Hockey Club for the coming
year are exceedingly good.
Many players from last season's
team are back again. Bea Sutton,
this year's president, and the coach,
Mr. Black, predict two good teams.
Among the seasoned players who
have returned are: Bea Sutton, Carol Sellars, Violet Mellish, Nancy Carter, Mabel McDonald, Elmi Teppo,
and Laurel Rowntree.
Hope Palmer of South Vancouver
fame and Dorothy Lawrence and the
Carson sisters, together with many
more are newcomers.
Well, here we are! Just another innovation
in the life of the Ubyssey. And with the usual
timidity of the sport staff, we bluahingly present it to you, our revered and honored readers.
This year, there will be several changes in the
make-up and composition of this page which
we hope will add interest to those who can find
time to peruse this section of the "journal."
In the past there has been some comment on
the allotment of space to the various sports.
In order to eliminate any dissatisfaction this
year, we offer this explanation of the space
First, articles involving Inter-Collegiate competition, in which a member of the Western
Canada Intercollegiate Association ia competing, will be given preference over all other
stories. Apart from this, the major teams of the
University are on an even scale so far aa this
staff is concerned, remembering, of course,
that these are the Big Four Canadian Rugby
teams, the McKechnie Cup English Rugby
team, both men's and women's Senior Basketball* teams and the Track team. Following the
major teams, the first squads in minor sports
will be placed, with the junior teams of major
clubs and the sub-minor clubs coming at the
bottom of the list.
It is well to remember, however, that this
schedule is by no means rigid, and may be
varied at the discretion of the sport staff. For
instance, the English Rugby Club has only |
three or four McKechnie Cup games in a
season, while the Basketball team may play
from fifteen to* twenty-five. Naturally the
space per game for these squads will not be
the same.
Tomorrow, the first of the U.B.C. major
teams will take the field for the 1931-32 session. At Athletic Park, under the glare of the
arc-lights, a fighting Blue and Gold Canadian
Rugby squad will attempt to prove its right to
be called a contender in the race for the B.C.
Championship and the Lipton Cup. The grind
to get this team in shape for the opening battle
has been more difficult than in previous years
and there are many who dotibt the ability of
the students tb conquer the rejuvenated New
Westminster aggregation.
In the last week Dr. Gordon Burke has been
out each morning to get the Varsity team into
some kind of shape. The task has not been easy
and many discouraging exhibitions have added
to the hardships that the coach must face.
Many of the old players have been unable to
return and their places must be filled with
inexperienced men. Others have not reached
the city until two or three days before the
game, and they must be taught their plays and
signals before Saturday.
Fortunately there have been no serious injuries in practice so that the Blue and Gold
Mentor can use all of the men he has had to
work with. But this does not simplify the
troubles that have worried Dr. Burke. Tomorrow will show conclusively just how much
has been accomplished in building the Varsity
team. Tomorrow the result of the anxious
hours of practice and planning that have been
used up in the last two weeks will be definitely
known. With every conscientious student on
the campus at-the game, the Varsity Canadian
Rugby team must "do or die" to hold its prestige at the University.
But above all, the squad out on the field will
play to win because Dr. Burke expects them
to. And it is up to every member of the Alma
Mater Society to pay tribute to "the Grand
Old Man of Athetics at U.B.C." by supporting
the team he has developed.

faith in it's ability to carry off more
than its' own share of honours.
President Arne Powell reports that
Golf Club tickets, which entitle Varsity students to a reduced rate on the
University course, are selling with
the rapidity of the proverbial hot-
cakes. The season gets under way
with the playing of the annual Student-Faculty match. There follows
a Handicap Tournament, an event in
which every player has an equal
chance, due to handicap allowances.
Matches with both Victoria College
and the University of Washington are
highlights of the season.
The champion of the university is
determined in an Open Tournament,
played at the close of the term. The
team is selected by the captain, and
as.golf was raised to a minor status
last year, members of the team are
now eligible for small block letters.
According to President Powell,
most of the old guard are back to
dig divots for the beloved Alma
Mammy. Fred Proctor graduated,
while George Hancox (Hank, to
you,) has gone in business in a big
way. "Hank" annoniiced fervently in
the Caf. yesterday morning that he
had left golf and the University for
good. When last seen, he was stalking the campus with a golf club in
either hand, offering them to the
highest bidder. Charlie McCadden,
once City Champion, and present
holder of the University title, will
be sockin' 'em straight and true for
Varsity once again. Other members

Women's Gym Club
Completes Plans
For Coming Year
Freshettes are assured that thi.
year they will have no excuse for
not keeping trim and peppy. For the
Women's Gym Club "makes you fit
and keep, you slim" by their regular classes on Mondays from 4:30 to
5:30. Marches, work on the bars,
calisthenics, and physical jerks make
up the main part of the hour, while
those who care to stay for the last
fifteen minutes will learn a few
clever clog dances. The work will
not be difficult for beginners, and
will be sufficiently complicated for
the more experienced members. There
is no definite gym outfit, but most
of the girls wear the gym bloomers
with a white blouse. The fees are
as reasonable as ever being a mere
dollar and a quarter for the entire
year. (Last year's "Gym Girls" are
assured there is no possibility of
double fees being levied this year.)
i This year the club was fortunate
to  secure    a really    splendid    gym
instructress in the person of Miss
Muriel Harvie. Miss Harvie is a graduate of U. B. C. and has received her
diploma for physical education from
McGill. Consequently she can readily understand the needs of the girls
here as well as give them capable instruction.
In order to Introduce Miss Harvie
and the freshettes, Miss Jean Campbell, the president, is giving a tea at
1190 Wolfe Avenue on Tuesday, September 29, from four to six. All
freshettes and any prospective members are invited to come and discuss
the work. Take a number seven
