Varsity Has Fine Chance to Win
Premier Honors in First
Division Soccer.
The Veterans travelled to Con
Jones' park, Saturday, determined to
defeat Varsity. The game brought
together the crack teams of the First
Division, and was productive of some
of the best soccer seen on local
grounds this season. Varsity fielded
a team handicapped by the loss of
Cameron, whose stellar game was
sorely missed. In spite of this, however, the Blue and Gold pressed hard
from the opening whistle. Emery j
played a very fine game at outside i
right, and after a splendid play cen-1
tered prettily to Jock Lundie, who
easily beat Robinson by heading the
ball into the net.
The soldiers came right back and
tested Mosher with some strong shots,
but in each instance he cleared, and
brought the spectators to their -feet,
time after time, with his masterly display. Soon after, the whistle went for
half-time, after an exciting and ding-
dong struggle.
A   Gruelling   Half.
The second half opened, and the
Vets, attacked strongly, but seemed
unable to penetrate our defence. Johnny McLeod secured the hall, easily
passed the one opposing back, and
with a long hot drive, put Varsity
two up. Robinson's spectacular effort to save did little good, and the
game seemed won and lost.
Twenty-five minutes was yet left,
and the soldiers played desperately
and well. Forgie, who had not spared
himself at any stage of the game, beat
Mosher for the Veterans' first goal.
Seven minutes later, from a scrim-

Norman Robertson
Norman Robertson, Arts '23, Will
Attend Oxford Next Year—
Has Splendid Record.
Mr. Norman Robertson, Arts '23,
was appointed 1923 Rhodes Scholar
for British Columbia by the Selection
Committee which announced its
award last Thursday evening. Mr.
Robertson was appointed from a field
of twelve competitors, all but two of
whom are undergraduates or graduates  of this  University.
Norman Robertson's appointment is
an extremely popular one amongst
those who have known him during his
career at U. B. C. He has had a
brilliant academic record, has taken
a large share in college activities
such as debating, discussion clubs and
the like, is well-known as president
last year of the Social Science Club,
and this year of the Literary and
Scientific Department, and has not
been found wanting when called upon
to defend the honor of his class on
the rugby field. The way that Robertson has been able to maintain first-
class standing at examination time
and at the same time attend lectures
without taking notes, take a very
leading share in the majority of arguments about the college and generally
keep abreast of the issues of the day,
has earned for him the envy and admiration of his friends.
The Rhodes Scholarship is awarded
annually by a Selection Committee to
the British Columbia student who is
thought to measure up most nearly
to the standards set by Mr. Cecil
Rhodes in laying down the conditions
of the award.

Aims of World Student Christian
Federation Briefly and Vigorously  Outlined.
(Ed. Note.—The "Ubyssey" is indebted for the following article to a
contributor keenly interested in the
Student Christian Movement in Canada. It is exceedingly timely in view
of the activity of the movement at the
present time and the misconception as
to its true functions which exists in
the minds of many students.)
All youth movements, especially
those connected with student life, if
they are to have more than a passing
existence, must be based on honesty
of thought and action, and, because
they are of youth, that thought and
action must be directed towards con-
temprorary questions that are of actual living importance for that particular period. Hence it comes that the
World Student Christian Federation,
with the various national Student
Christian Movement units composing
it, involving some 260,000 students and
professors, is very much concerned
with current problems. Our movement in Canada has, during the last
two years as a student-controlled fellowship, and expressive of student
opinion, been feeling its way toward
a national consciousness and an international attitude of mind, and from
the conferences this summer emerged
some very definite statements of the
problems facing us today:
First, that we as present day students must get into close grip with
the international and inter-racial problems of our time, must get behind prejudice and convention and sentimentality, to the real sources of war—
economic exploitation, race prejudice,
national and imperial ambition, and
so forth.

Tension   Grips  Spectators   From
First to Last in Rugby
Match Saturday.
The game for which the Varsity
team has been preparing since the beginning of the season is over and the
work that went before has been rewarded ny the success of last Saturday. Ten points to three, two goals to
a try was the score in a game sufficiently full of thrills to endanger the
mental balance of the most hardened
spectator. In fact it may well be said
that those who were not there were
almost sufficiently punished by missing the match.
Hammer and  Tongs  Struggle
The game started punctually, and
settled down almost at once to the
hammer-and-tongs struggle which continued until the final whistle. Varsity
had to fight hard to protect their line
for the first twenty minutes against
Vancouver's very dashing attack.
Then Purdy intercepted a pass and
after a good run found touch a long
way into "Rep" territory. Now it
was Varsity's turn to press and several fine runs resulted. This attack
was checked temporarily when Vancouver broke through the College
backs and brought the play to mid-
field. A minute later two Varsity
players collided in their efforts to
clear from a long kick and Pinkham,
following the ball, was able to score
near the corner flag. The kick failed.
Playing all the harder in face of this
-et back Varsity were distinctly on top
for the remainder of the half. On
one occasion only did Vancouver relieve the pressure when an intercepted pass took the "Rep" team back to
the other end of the field.
After half-time the same intensity of
effort on both sides rapidly reduced
the spectators to the state of nervous
(Continued on Page 3)
The Auditorium was filled to capacity   on   Saturday   evening   when   the j
Musical Society presented its seventh j
Christmas  concert  before  an  appreci- '
ative audience.
The program opened with the college song, "Long Live Our College,
Fair." This was followed by "O Canada!" in which the whole Musical Society took part, the Glee Club being
accompanied by the orchestra. Mr.
Etter, president of the society, acted
as accompanist for the other numbers.
The orchestra, a live section of the
society, played "Senior March" with
much spirit and vigour. Following
this the Glee Club, unaccompanied,
sang "Sweet and Low" with great expression   and  sweetness.    Their  next
number, "Hail, Smiling Morn," afforded an effective contrast. In rendering Massenet's "Elegie," Miss Dora
Lyness displayed a sweet soprano
voice which would have appeared to
better advantage in a smaller room.
Her encore, "Husheen," was particularly appreciated.
Mr. Kania's violin obligato was played with great feeling.
Pinsuti's "Spring Song" was another sprightly number sung by the Glee
Club. The orchestra won great applause by their spirited rendering of
the entr' acte "Gavotte" from Mig-
non, and for the more stately selection
"Eleanor." The interval was enlivened by sundry college songs and medleys sung by the  students.

Among Those Present Were
Miss Mlly and Mr. Cork
Well, I was on the Arts '25 hike last
Saturday. The dance at the Stanley
Park pavillion was great, but the Rugby game was rotten. What anyone
can see in watching a bunch of men
fall all over a ball from one end of
the field to the other, is more than I
can see. All the men sat at one side
of the grandstand and the women at
the other. I nearly froze to death.
Remember the first time the Varsity
touched the ball down against the enemy? Well, to see the bunch throwing
their hats in the air and jumping
around in each other's arms you would
have thought that they were a bunch
o£ maniacs. Believe me, it didn't affect me that way; I sat right still in
my seat and thanked the stars I wasn't
as big a fool as that howling crowd
around me. When that second touch
was made there was one hyena right
behind me who jumped clean up in the
air and brought a College Readings
book down on my head with all his
might. Gee, I was mad! I turned
around, and believe me. I frowned at
him good and plenty.
After the game everyone, including
myself, Miss Nilly, and the team, went
over to the pavillion and had supper.
The spread was wonderful. Miss Nilly
let me put the sugar in her coffee.
There was a scarcity of spoons, too,
so Miss Nilly and I had to use the
same one. Supper was broken up by
a skyrocket from the king.
The dancing and music which followed upstairs was great. About 8.30
I says to Miss Nilly: "What do you
say about going down stairs and having a feed of ice cream?"
"Why, yes, if you like, Mr. Cork,''
she answered.
Well, we went down the stairs and
into the refreshment place. I walked
over to the place where you buy the
stuff, tossed a dime on the counter,
and said: "A couple of ice-cream
cones, sir." Well, I gave Miss Nilly
one, and we went over and sat down
at a table and ate them. When we
had finished them, I said to her:
"Would you like anvthing else to eat.
Miss  Nilly?"
"Oh, I'm not particular, Mr, Cork,"
she replied; "just whatever you
•I didn't know just what to think,
but I went over and bought a package
of Life-Savers, and we sat and ate
That was the most important thing
about the dance. After it was over
I took Miss Nilly home. When we got
to her gate and it was time for me to
leave, I felt rather embarrassed and
I didn't know just how to say goodnight. Just then I saw a cat. "Here,
cat. cat, cat, cat," I called, "poor
"Why. if it isn't Tom," cried Miss
Nilly. She picked the scrawny beggar up and we scratched his ears,
waggled his head, and we talked about
him for half an hour. After that I
guess he must have got tired of so
much affection, for he started to growl
and scratch so that we had to drop
him. The crucial moment had arrived, summoning up all my courage I
muttered, "Well, Miss Nilly, I guess
I've held you long enough, so—well,
Silence Will Be Enforced
The question of breaches of discipline was again brought up in Council
on Monday evening. Numerous complaints have been received from Faculty concerning disturbances in the
halls, particularly those adjoining
Rooms  X,  Y  and  Z.    The  letters  of
warning with which Council is supplied have" not as yet been used to
any great extent. It was decided that
in future the regulations concerning
bleaches of discipline would be rigorously enforced, and sterner measures
taken against those who continue refractory.
I got my ticket for the plays on Monday—one green ticket—and promptly
forgot about the Club and probably
would not have thought about it again
if it had not been for what happened
the other night.
■I was wandering in the corridors
prior to studying, when I heard a hubbub in the Auditorium — the place
looked dark to me—no, as I peeked in
the door there were lights at the far
end, on the- stage. Horrors! Two
boys on the floor engaged in a struggle—one was perched on the other's
chest and was hammering him. The
villain! Would he not listen to the
pleas of the lady at his side? So this
was the behavior of college students—
I should stop it at once. I moved forward—they should be MADE to stop.
I advanced more hastily, stumbling in
the dark. "Just a minute," it was a
voice in the distance. I recognized
it as that of the Director. "Try that
again." he said. I sank into a seat
nearby: It was one of the Xmas
It had never dawned on me before
that the productions required so much
work and trouble on the part of the
actors and the committees.
■1 sat right through the rehearsal,
and, I don't want to tantalize you, but
—How would you like to see a noble
member of the Students' Council harden his heart to the pleas of a lovely
lady? Can you imagine the fatherly
marshall of one of the most aggressive
years as a murderer? You'll be surprised when you see her; her hair may
be bobbed, but she's a grandmother!
What are you going to think of an
Aggie who plays with the hearts of
two noble women? Ah! Wait until
Thursday night—you will see them all
then,   and  marvel   as  I  did!

Miss, Nellie Harrison distinguished
herself in the first movement of the
Greig Concerto. As Mr. J. D. A. Tripp
who was to have been at the second
piano, was unable to attend, Mr. Ira
Swartz performed very creditably in
his stead.
The Glee Club was again heard in
the quaint "Dixie Kid," a plantation
song which delighted the audience,
who insisted in its repetition. This
was followed by Lutspiel Overture,
carefully executed by the orchestra.
Mr. Kania's violin solo, "Samson et
Delilah," was worthy of praise though
the accompaniment might have been
improved by a little more diligent preparation. Mr. Kania was obliged to
respond to an encore. "The Bridal
Chorus." sung very spiritedly by the
Glee Club, reflected great credit on
Mr.   Grant's   training.

his desire that all-round men be
chosen and suggested three prime
qualifications in candidates vvhich
should form the basis of the choice.
These were good academic standing,
evidence of capacity for leadership,
of personal popularity and good moral
character, and fondness for games or
other manly sports. The Scholarship
at present is of the value of 350
pounds sterling and is tenable for
three years  at  Oxford University.
Mr. Robertson will take up residence at Oxford in the fall of 132.1
and will be the "wentietb Rhodes
Scholar from this province to go to
that famous institution. Th.-- Ubyssey

its very hearty   congratulations.

Amateur hockey will have another

number of enthusiasts turning out to
the Arena can be taken as a criterion. Varsity' is only entering one
team this year, and that in the Intermediates, but on paper it looks like a
f ne  aggregation.
Such stars as Demidoff, Fulton, McPherson, Clarke and McCutcheon will
don the spangles for Varsity, and
their ranks will be supplemented by
such Freshmen as Gyles and Barr,
who played stellar games for King

For Varsity, each member of the
team played a splendid game. Emery
played extremely well, and has the
makings of a fine wing-man. Baker,
Crute and Mosher were most effective
on the defence, while Lundie and McLeod also did exceptionally well.
Buckley was back on the line-up, and
did some good work. He played a
much better game Saturday than usual. For the Veterans, Forgie was perhaps the lone star. He always was
dangerous and proved an unselfish,
hard-working player. Varsity now
stands second in the First Division,
having ten points. The Vets, have
twelve, but have played two more
games than the students. Varsity
still has an unbeaten record and a
fine chance of winning the premier
honors  in the Division.

Last Saturday, at Marpole, Varsity
seconds made a much better showing
than on the previous week, holding
McGibbon-Hodgson to a draw, 2—2.
Despite a very bad start, being two
goals behind in the first five minutes,
the whole team settled down and played a good game. Varsity scored their
first near the close of the first half.
They pressed throughout the greater
part of the second half and were rewarded by securing the tying goal after a determined rush, 15 minutes
through the half. Both teams fought
hard for the remainder of the time,
with Varsity having a slight edge, but
being unable to score against the lumber company's hard-working defence.
Stubbs played a fine game, while
Ledingham. moved to center half, was
very effective. Davidson also stopped
some good shots, one of the goals
which went by him being from a penalty.

tension from which they had temporarily emerged during the cessation of
One of Vancouver's excursions into
Varsity territory nearly produced another three points when a free kick
came perilously near scoring. Varsity's
efforts, however, were rewarded at
last, with ten minutes to play. From
a loose scrum somewhere between the
"Rep" twenty-five and the half-way
line the ball went across the Varsity
three-quarter line, Palmer covering
the last twenty yards at top speed to
score some ten yards from the touch
line. The enthusiasm of Varsity supporters seriously threatened the safety of the grandstand, and when Val
Gwyther put Varsity two points in the
lead with a pretty kick, the benches
positively rocked. Vancouver came
back hard, but to no purpose, and
Ternan made victory certain when he
threaded his way through his opponents for a second try, this time near
one of the posts. Gwyther again converted and the whistle blew Immediately afterwards.
Vancouver had a team to which it
would have been no disgrace to lose,
perhaps the best team they have ever
fielded. They had reason for confidence in their own ability but perhaps
underestimated Varsity's powers. Be
that as it may, the match produced a
contest which will live in the minds
of those privileged to witness it as an
example of a clean, hard-fought and
sportsmanlike encounter which it will
be hard to equal. Both sides played
great rugby. Varsity's three-quarter
play was very effective, their tackling
in particular completely smothering
the fast Vancouver backs. The touch-
kicking of the "Rep" team and their
work in the scrum formed the salient
features of their game.

Doubtless the responsibility must
rest in part with the "Ubyssey" itself. With so many activities open to
them, students with literary leaning
are possibly finding a more cordial reception elsewhere. Possibly, too, the
spirit of satire and parody which has
won for some contributions a doubtful fame, has discouraged modest and
over-sensitive scribes. But these considerations cannot altogether excuse
the  present apathy.
For the last two years the "Ubyssey"
has published a Literary Supplement
for the announced purpose of bringing to light any latent literary talent
in the University. This year, in the
face of the prevailing indifference, it
is felt that the experiment would not
be justified—a decision which is offered as an unwilling tribute to the might
of  the  Philistine.
Nothing further can be done about
the remission of fees to returned soldier students until the budgets are
discussed in the Provincial House, according to the latest word received
by the committee that is looking after
the matter for the students. When
the budgets are discussed one of the
members of the House will recommend that a slightly larger grant be
made to the University to cover the
remission of these fees.
We take this opportunity of again
voicing the hope that the Legislature
will see its way clear to advance the
necessary funds. As has already been
pointed out in these columns, the sum
required will go to swell the total of
Government estimates but slightly,
while the remission of their fees to
the returned men still at college will
be of marked advantage to them. They
have been increasing their value to
the state by virtue of their efforts to
obtam an education, yet have received no assistance such as that given
by the S. C. R. or Land Settlement
Board, with the single exception of
immunity from payment of fees. Some
of them have found the financial struggle too severe and have been compelled to leave college. Surely the one
favour that has been granted the men
who sacrificed the three, four or five
of the best years of their youth in the
service of their country, is not going
to be denied the few who are still following the^paths of learning.
Six delegates from the University
of B. C. will attend the First National
Student Conference which will be
held in Toronto, under the auspices of
the Student Christian Movement, during December of this year. Three of
tho delegates are being sent partly
al the expense of the student body.
Many of us, having in mind the
disappointing results of previous and
similar conferences, are extremely
skeptical as to the practicability of
such conferences. Are there practical
results from these conferences? Do
they justify the expense? Do we send
delegates simply for appearance'
Judging from the agenda of the
conference, we are extremely glad to
find that it will not be a 'similar'
conference. That is to say, it will
not consist of a series of highly inspirational talks, appealing to the
emotions, arousing enthusiasm for a
week, and ending at that. It will not
be taken for granted that student
delegates are acquainted with the
scriptures and come to the conference
already so inspired and uplifted that
the foreign mission field alone will
satisfy their zeal.
On the other hand a serious attempt will be made to estimate
exactly what student opinion on religious matters is—not what it ought
to be, nor what everyone hopes it is,
nor what anyone pretends it is—but
just what it is. If the conference
succeeds as we hope it will, in obtaining this estimate, surely no one
can doubt its having achieved a practical result.

Until now the returned soldier students of this University have never
been called upon to pay the regular
tuition fees. Owing to the lack of
funds this year the University has not
seen its way clear to grant this customary concession.
Interest of $500 has been annually
realized on the grant of $12,000 from
the Khaki University of Canada, and,
at a meeting of returned soldiers last
Friday, it was suggested that, although this sum was entirely insufficient for the refund of all the fees,
yet it might be used in the especially
needy cases. A resolution was finally decided on not to dispose of the
$500 until definite word from the government was received as to the University budget, and furthermore, as
there was some doubt concerning the
uses the Khaki University Scholarship Fund could be put to, that the
committe confer with the president
for full information. The president
was interviewed, and he asked the
committee that they work in conjunction with him in the disposal of the
interest on  the fund.

A significant remark voiced recently in one of the corridors was to the
effect that "there was nothing to interest anyone in the debate tryouts"
because "they were a foregone conclusion anyway."
This attitude is prevalent with regard to other activities besides debating. It has been pointed out before now that the Literary Corner this

Dear   Sir:
While we believe in inter-class fellow-'
ship and goodwill we feel that a pro- \
test is justified as regards the action
of some of our fellow students on the
occasion of Arts '25 hike to the Rugby
game. It is not according to our ideas
of fair-play that uninvited members of j
other years and even Normalites should
attend our class functions. Above all,
when members of the executive explained that we would like to keep the
affair within our own year and our
officially invited guests, one would expect the outsiders to withdraw. To our
surprise they stayed not only to the
supper,   but   through  the  dance.
Of course, we could not eject them
by main force—and we had, not unnaturally, expected that the mere intimation that it was strictly a class affair would be enough to make them
think   they   should  withdraw.
AYe cio not wish to be thought in hospitable, but we certainly feel that our
good nature has been imposed upon, and
that in making this protest, we are
justified in considering the affair a
breach of etiquette, and a violation of
the commonly accepted ideas of fair-
The Executive of Arts  -5.
Per  H.  G.   McCMLJ.,.
Dear   Sir:
Why doesn't our Athletic Executive
encourage a man to train for track, or
a class in the Governor's Cup Competition. The individual gets nothing for
re-presenting V. \i. C. in an inter-collegiate meet unless he wins. What would
our football teams think if they got no
letters because they failed to win the
cup? In the track meet a big block goes
to the aggregate man, and the points
win the small block, the man who breaks
a   record  gets  no   recognition.
A class with nine husky men, gets as
many points for pulling a rope as the
year that wins the track aggregate, in
the Governors cup competition. Apart
from the injustice of this, our track
standard is lowered by putting what
should be about the biggest event in
the college term on a par with such
ordinarv  events  as  a  tug-of-war.
Every University track record is excelled by High Schools, and, in eight
cases the same men hold better records
there, than at U. B. C. for the same
events. This shows that far from developing track stars, we can't even keep
in shape the men who come here from
High  School.
High School men are not coached
much, hence our defientey must be lack
of training, due largely to the fact that
this University doesn't make it worth
while. Track training is the hardest
there is, it is monotonous, takes endurance, and the actual race is a nerve
racking  affair.
How can we expect a man to train a
month during exams, pay his way, run
his bes; at Yictoria on .Ian. 7 and get
no   recognition?
Track is a major sport here because it
is at other colleges, then why doesn't
the Executive encourage it, as they do
in other colleges? Then the track men
would train and let the people of Vancouver know we are alive and not be
subject to such criticism as the President of the M.A.T.P.A. who said that
U. B. C. was the "missing link' in

Students' Council Meeting.
Considerable business was contracted at Monday night's meeting of the
Students' Council.
A delegation from the S. C. M., consisting of Miss M. Lowe, Miss J. Cas-
selman, and Mr. H. F. Allen, attended
the meeting and urged the Council to
authorize the sending of delegates to
the first National Students' Conference, which will be held in Toronto
during December. The S. C. M. received permission to send two delegates. Council decided that, in addition, the student body as a whole
should be represented by four other
delegates. One will be a member of
Faculty and the other three will be
chosen from the student body by a
selection committee of three members
of the Council. It was agreed that
the Alma Mater Society should contribute $40 to the expenses of each
of the three delegates sent by the
student body.
President A. E. Richards outlined
the agenda of the conference of college student presidents, which is being held in Berkeley this week, and
touched briefly on the matters with
which he, as IT. B. C.'s representative,
would deal.
Council then passed a resolution
congratulating Mr. Norman Robertson, president of the Literary and Scientific Department, on winning the
Rhodes  Scholarship  for  1923.
At this meeting Mr. P. Barr, the
newly-elected treasurer, assumed office for the first time.
Press Appreciations of Dr. Ash-
tons Work.
Dr. Ashton's recent work, which is
a study of ilme. de La Fayette, is attracting a great deal of attention
throughout England and France. In
a long criticism of the work The
Times Literary Supplement says "We
cannot recall any biography that represents in proportion to its length,
so great an amount of Teading from
original sources wherever possible."
The Scotsman in an equally favorable
criticism speaks of the work as being "uncommonly interesting" and
praises the author for his "freedom
from   prepossessions."
The Times (London) makes the fol
lowing statement. "We may well feel
that this book, the finest and far the
most learned study of Mme. de La
Fayette that has appeared, should
have been published by an English
Press and under the auspices of a
university of the Empire, that of British Columbia. Her biographer has
brought not only great industry and
learning to the study of her life and
surroundings, but sane and unbiased
criticism to that of her work."

Vachel Lindsay Addresses Students
On Saturday last at noon about three
hundred students and professors had
the privilege of hearing Mr. Vachel
Lindsay recite some of his own po
ems. Dr. Sedgewick, with his usual
felicity, introduced the poet. Mr. Lind
say, who has an erect carriage and an
assured presence, began with a few
remarks on the general significance,
in life and in literature, of the "West-
going spirit." The first slightly disagreeable impression of a rather pompous and inflated platform "mannah"
quickly wore off. The recital of Mr.
Lindsay's verse calls for a frankly
rhetorical quality which, excusably
enough, has affected his ordinary
speech, giving it somewhat the air of
a performance. However, as I say,
this impression was soon forgotten,
and his whimsical humour and evident sincerity put us at our ease almost at once.
Probably no one but their author
could render these poems with that
robustness and versatility that make
their inspiration. Of course, to do
them justice they really want a full
orchestration — drums. trombones,
flutes, tambourines, and whistles. But
Mr. Lindsay supplies the lack of these
instruments with astonishing effect.
That magnificent medley, Calliope
(please pronounce Cally-ope), declaimed by its author, evokes a confused
but extraordinarily vivid impression
of   multitudinous   lusty   youth,   steam
(Continued   from   Page   1)
Second, that one of the greatest
needs today is a student volunteer
movement for industrial service, recognizing that fundamentally modern
industry is organized on the basic
principle of getting, not giving, and
that we must seek to create a social
order in which the impulse to service
through creative action will be
stronger than the acquisitive impulse.
Third, that we must face the imperative need of bringing about cooperation between modern science and
theology, of finding forms of expression for religious truths in accordance
with the knowledge of our own day,
in place of outworn forms that are
driving us to intellectual dishonesty,
and a consequently discordant way of
In these three statements we are
justified in calling ourselves a Student Movement, but there are other
movements that adopt one or more of
these purposes as their "raison d'etre,"
some, as in China, definitely calling
themselves non-Christian. Is there
anything distinctive about our Movement? Yes—we call our Movement
Christian. To carry out any one of
the above-mentioned tasks, as we
know to our cost, demands men and
women of steadfastness of purpose,
freedom from self-interest, readiness
to lose all for themselves and of themselves, if only they may make some
forward step possible in the history
of the human race. There have been
men in all ages, the true leaders of
men, who have had this spirit, and
among them there was One who not
only thought clearly, spoke fearlessly,
acted selflessly, but when His fellow-
men rejected Him and judged Him
worthy of the most shameful death of

march of democracy—and all to the
rollicking tune of a round-about at a
"I am the Calliope, Calliope, Calliope,
Tooting   hope!"
With a quaint audacity (I hardly
think it is unconscious), Mr. Lindsay
often uses in his recitative the very
cadences of certain Gregorian chants.
Those ecclesiastical minor thirds,
wedded to such profane content as
"Too-ooting hope!" have an indescribable effect of incongruity, and I know
not what flavour of absurd fitness. Mr.
Lindsay's dominant motif might be
said to be democracy with a strong
cachet of Roman Catholicism.
"The City of My Discontent" is conceived in another key. Though the
last few lines of this poem are weak,
it is an expression of profound and
intimate truth. Mr. Lindsay is touched with the authentic fire; his contribution to American letters will be
found, I think, to be of lasting importance.
Some of us were a little disappointed that we were not given "General
Booth Enters Into Heaven" and "The

K. M. P.
that day, apparently bore all enmity
without any suggestion of personal
bitterness, and loved to the end. Better still, He showed us step by step
in His own experience of life, how we
could develop in ourselves that same
spirit of "deep sincerity and unconquerable good-will." So there lies the
fundamental challenge of the S. C. M.
—that we find out what His way was,
that we make that way of life our
way, so that we (as we make our great
adventure of life) may be the kind of
people who can stand the strain of
ridicule, of poverty, of thanklessness,
of disappointment, and not break under it.
The bitterest times of experience

Tightness in any direction are those
moments when energy lags, ' vision

Jesus found the secret of how to meet
such moments, would it be worth while
knowing?   I wonder!

Lesson No. 1.
The first yell to be learned is necessary to all colleges and other institutions where moral support is necessary. It is called the 'Hurrah" yell.
Here it. how the leader should act:
1. Take position before the crowd.
e     e     e
2. Instruct them to pronounce the
yell "Hoo-Rah" with earnest and dignified enthusiasm.    Then place hands
on hips.
*    *    *
3. At the first count, raise hands
from hips to a position horizontal
with the ground. As this is done, the
crowd should say "Hoo?"
*    *    *
4. At the second count, lower hands
to hips again. During this motion the
crowd should finish the yell; namely,
say "Rah!" After the yell, absolute
silence must be maintained while the
leader  regains  his  lost  breath.
Lesson  No. 2.
The "Try-Hard" Yell. The leader
must follow these steps:

1. Instruct the crowd that this is
the yell to be rendered. At the appropriate time, the yell leader (who
must be a licensed practitioner of
aesthetic dancing) begins to flit about
the three-foot space allotted to him,
moving his arms in the manner of a
butterfly on a spring morn and practicing his prettiest aesthetic steps. He
should be garbed in the costume of a
Grecian maiden. As he flits about, he
beats time with a fairy wand to the
solicitation of the crowd, who are saying, in a most dignified manner, "Endeavor, Boys, Oh, Do Endeavor!" using
a most pleading but quiet tone. This
yell is kept up until all yell leaders
fall to the ground from sheer exhaustion, and the referee calls for time out
until the "W" men hasten to them
and place their starred blankets about
the yell leader's shoulders.

The local Y. M. C. A. have extended an invitation to this University to
compete in their track meet tomorrow
night, Friday. At the time of writing
only two entries have been received.
This would be a splendid opportunity
for our track men to get into shape
to run in Victoria on Jan. 7, also to
show the Y. M. C. A. people that we
are alive, but apparently the enthusiasm is not what it should be. Though
this is not intended as a criticism, it
would seem that the project has hardly been brought to the notice of everyone, and no efforts have been made by
anyone to train. As George Goulding
is a Y. M. C. A. instructor and has offered to coach our team, it seems
rather a poor way of showing our
supposedly increased interest in track
affairs this year over last year. The
writer wonders if the Victoria relay
and the spring track meet will be put
off to the last minute, as this was.
The University also received an offer
to compete with the police tug-of-war
team with a handicap of one man.
Evidently the police, who probably
read of our inter-class competition,
were mistaken in thinking we had a
tug-of-war   team.
Here's hoping that the two men out
of the thousand-odd students of this
University meet with the success that
they  deserve.
Last Wednesday the Aggie Discussion Club meeting took the form of a
mock parliament. The three parties
were Government, Opposition and Labor. The bill that the government introduced was the University question,
and although the bill passed after
much discussion, the Labor party, who
opposed the bill, brought up some
splendid arguments against it. The
feature speech was that of Alex.Zoond,
who left the Opposition and took up
his seat with the Labor party. Mr.
Hope, of the Labor party, and Sperry
Phillips were in fine form, the latter
causing much laughter.
The Premier was Mr. J. Woods: the
Speaker, Lefty Nelson; Leader of the
Opposition, G. Barton; Labor, E. Hope.
Some of the best speakers were put
on the Labor side because they had
the harder case to defend. The On-
position, though in favour of the bill,
severely criticized the Government
for tardiness in bringing the bill before the House. The whole discussion was carried on in true parliamentary style. Prof. Saddler afterwards
congratulated the members for the
discussion and outlined the benefits
derived from such debates.
The Varsity Badminton Club has
grown by leaps and bounds, and this
year has enrolled somewhere around
thirty members. The Club holds sway
at the King Edward gym. on Monday
nights, and some good players have
been unearthed. A tournament is now
being held, and the mixed doubles
competition is in full swing. So far
Miss Russell and H. Cantelon have
won all their matches, and are leading the parade, closely followed by
Miss Tatlow and B. Weld, who have
only lost one game. The mixed doubles will be concluded next Monday,
and will be followed by the men's and
ladies' doubles. A tournament with
the Fairview Badminton Club is also
being arranged, and a team will most
likely compete against them.
This club has been formed for the;
purpose of acquiring knowledge in the
theory and practical work of wireless.
Lectures from various speakers will
be given at frequent intervals, and
the value of such was demonstrated
by the first one, given by Dr. Hebb
a few nights ago on the "History and
Development   of  Wireless."
Apparatus for erecting an up-to-date
amateur telegraph and radio station
is available, and installation work will
commence at once. For this purpose
a building has been put up near the
Mining Building, and this will be the
home of the Radio Club.
Experience or knowledge in wireless is not necessary for membership,
and those who wish to learn are urgently invited to find out particulars
which may be had from Mr. F. T.
North, president, and Mr. T. V. Berry,
chief operator.
At.no distant date the Club expects
to be broadcasting regularly, and relaying news in a regular circuit.
Bruce's Windows
It was at the Canadian Club
today, some fellows were talking generally about business
methods. Great critics, these
club men.
"Well, I'll say this much," said
one of them, "there's one fellow
in town who gives a square deal,
and that's Bruce."
"I know," said another, "he has
the best-dressed windows in
town, and he doesn't advertise."
Club men know everything. An
advertising man who called to
enquire if the proprietor would
be interested, was met by the
young son, who said: "No, my
father doesn't advertise, he only
writes things that are true."
You should see Bruce's windows
—they'll tell you something.

Snowballs and Skids
I'm sort of a lonely cuss, you know,
scared of girls and all that—no, not
scared exactly—I just don't know I
many. You see I'm a science fellow, i
The bunch got me to say I'd go to the |
Arts '23 party then—they told me I'd j
drawn a girl—a strange girl! I had j
to call for and take a strange girl to j
the class party! Sounds awful but I;
phoned her and said I'd call about j
eight-thirty. What did the fellows let;
me into this for! I
Not all those snowballs or the !
icicles hanging from the hut at the ,
party could freeze me out now—she;
was some girl and the party A 1.
I had about five dances with her
<skids they called them). But, I was
the only one skidding and I felt myself slipping fast. By supper time it
seemed as though I'd known her all
my life and .that the delicious chocolate sundaes were the only coldness
to come between us. When Norm got
his bouquet, Boy! I wished I was a
Rhodes Scholar to get the look she
gave him.
When the last skid was over I
knew I'd fallen hard and not one of
the science fellows entered into the
sky-rocket for '23 as heartily as I.
The Chess Club held another series
of very closely contested games on
Monday last. There is very little to
choose between the play of any of the
members, and for a young club we
are developing some very fine talent.
Owing to the inability of some players to devote other time than that
set aside for playing. Monday, 4 to 6
p.m., we would ask every member to
either turn up as punctually as possible, or arrange a play-off before the
regular play, or forfeit the game.
Next, week's draw is as follows:
Anthony vs. Farrard, Dam vs. Freeman, Lambert vs. Forster, Taylor vs.
Richardson, Morsh vs. Mellish, Craig
vs. Hislop. Gambord vs. Shaw.
Because of the proximity of the examinations, the hike next Sunday will
be the last general hike of this season. As excursions may be arranged
during the holidays, members are advised to leave their addresses and telephone numbers  with  the  executive.
The hike next Sunday will be to
hollyburn Ridge, the party leaving by
the 0:30 a.m. West Vancouver Ferry.
As it is rumoured that there is over
a foot of snow on the Ridge it will be
advisable for members to come well
