Kllnck, in addressing members of the
Vanoouver Board of Trade wbo visited the University on Thursday afternoon.
Dr. Kllndk officially welcomed the
visitors to the University following a
luncheon in the cafeteria; He des*
cribedethe plans for the laying of the
site and praised the energy and pub-
llo*Bpirltedness of the students in thetr
campaign for the gymnasium.
Speaking of the overcrowded conditions of the institution, he declared
thht at the present rate of increase, if
permanent buildings were to be undertaken next spring, facilities would
have to be provided for 100 students
in excess of the accommodation now
Regarding the exclusion at Christmas of students who do not make a
Satisfactory showing In the examine*
tlons, the President assured his audience that the scholarship of tbe student and not the lack of accommodation formed tbe basis of the decisions. He referred to a recent editorial
appearing in a Vancouver paper under the heading, "Derelicts of U.B.C."
Students required to withdraw at
Christmas are not "derelicts." They
may take Senior Matriculation or return to university the following year.

bring some students to a proper view

Basketball Conclave
Held in Council
Long and heated discussion on the
question of withdrawal from the Vancouver and District Basketball leajjue
led to a decision to re-outllno the university's position to the league executive with a request that they reconsider their decision on centralization
when the Students' Council held a
six-hour session Monday night. Other
business included a report by Ralph
Brown, last year's Business Manager
of the "Ubyssey" and a visit by Sherwood Lett to arrange the program for
the official opening of the gymnasium.
After an explanation by Dunn of the
course taken by the university delegates to the recent meeting of the
basketball league, the possibilities of
Joining a southern conference were
considered. Little hope of arranging a
regular series of games Was expressed,
the general opinion being that exhibition games would constitute tbe bulk
of this year's contests. The secretary
was requested to write to the Vancouver and District League to negotiate a further consideration of tbe matter.
Ralph Brown, former Business Manager of the Publications Board appeared before the meeting to report
on thu finances of last year, He was
requested to prepare a detailed statement of tho outstanding debts and
tho progress of collections to be presented at the next meeting.
. With the ndvice of Sherwood Lett,
plans for the opening of the gymnasium were roughly outlined, and tha
date set for November 8,
In the matter of responsibility of
(he Alma Mater Society to athletes
Injured In games, It was decided to
procure legal advice before going any
On the recommendation of the
Faculty Committee, motions 11 and
16 of the meeting of October 11 Involving the renting of the gym to the
Ex-Varsity Basketball Club and tbe

EDITOR, the "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
This University Is striving against
the odds of student apathy, crowded
accommodation, and insufficient funds
to accomplish our multitudinous ends.
Should the University Editorial Board
not aid as much a* possible In making the University a* beautiful as it
can be?
The other day on an errand 1 happened to call at the Publications
Board office, more properly called,
one hears, the "Pub." An indescribable confusion met my eyes. The
desk* were covered with waste papers
and old copies of the Ubyssey, the
floor strewn with cigarette ends. Apparently no effort Is made to keep this
office In any. degree of neatness. The
windows were very dirty, and covered
with chalk scrlbbllngs. A motley collection of clothe* decorated the corner* of the room, some chiefly on the
floor The room was murky with stale
Surely the Editorial Board should
feel Rome obligation to the authorities
for the use of a large office, and Should
attempt to keep thi* room, which Is
now an eyesore In a building frequently Inspected by outsider*, In
some semblance of order. Thanking
you for the use of your column, I am,

A 60-watt lamp, used in connection with a floor

appreciative audience for a lecture on
"The Bonnlngton Falls Hydro-electric
Development" given by A. D. Plskin
of the B. O. Hlectrlc in Applied Science 100, Wednesday noon.
Mr. Fish-In preceded this discussion
of his subject with a short account ot
the trip which he made through the
Okanagjan and Kootenay district en
route to Bonnlngton.
The West Kootenay Power aad
Light Oo. has recently completed
tbelr No. t pleat at South Slocaa.on
the Kooteaay River and the speaksr
gave a detailed description of this
unit Illustrating his remarks hy reference to a cross-sectional diagram of
the power house aad dam whioh are
constructed la one piece. The address
also Included a brief description of
the same company's Mo. i and No. I
plants situated higher up the river
at the lower and upper Bonnlngton
Falls. The former development was
completed la 1114 aad replaced the
original aalt built about 1818 while
the No. I pleat Is the eMset now .operating, hsvine been fiateaeg in? iSai.
At the conclusion of his remarks
Mr. Flskla invited any of those pres*
eat who werg tateiwed w obtaining
further details of the deVetofrnent, to
visit him at his oftee.
Saskatooon, Oct 88. Novel penalties
were Imposed oa freshmen at the University of Saskatchewan who refused
to obey the ruling of the Initiation
Comittee. One man, who had tailed
to appear for the initiation, wee adequately dealt with when he appeared
the nest night Two others had refused to wear the full freshmen-regalia, which consists of a card feeler*
ing the bearer's name and college, a
ribbon of green aad white aad oae ot

shoes (tor which purpose he must
carry a shoe-shine kit at all times) or
brush off his clothes.
All the scofflaws were obliged to
wear a yellow ribbon over the left

The search for an educational panacea has brought forth such a variety
oi proposed cures that it is not to be
wondered If the net result to the patient Is little more than a confused
stat. of mind. A galaxy of remedies
ranging all the way from the Mlokle-
john experiment at Wisconsin to the
House Plan at Yale and Harvard present* an array broad enough to convince the layman that all the best authorities are not agreed even to the
point of diagnosis. But perhaps in the
moat recent recommendation—that of
Professor Henderson of Yale—there
ls a new note of direct action which
may do something more than add to
the mystery of the educational process.
Professor Henderson has no elaborate system to offer, he has Invented
no machines to produce college grad*
uates, he suggests nothing to basically
upset present programs. Instead, he
goes to tbe heart of the educational
body—the men who teach. And when
he suggests the use of the vaat funds
available for education dlreotly towards raising the standard ot these
men he makes an appeal to all who
place tbe every-day, human element
Suooess for any human undertaking
reata primarily upon the quality of the
men Involved. And amidst the scurry
for improvement Professor Henderson's advioe to mark time until the
human element has caught up with
the mechanical and theoretical rings
true like an age-old maxim. Certainly
the real significance of this moat recent proposal Is the fact that In it lies
the true foundation for the successful
realisation of the alms of countless
new educational devices.

Toronto's Verdict
Toronto, Oct. 2».-"I think that
the Inculcating of idealism Into a student is the punvise of a university,"
said Doctor Gerald Phelan ot the Institute of Medieval Philosophy at St.
Mloheal's College, when asked by
"The Varsity" whether he considered
idealism In the student a good thing
or whether he should be taught something practical
"A man. comes to university* not to
learn how to earn his living, but to
attain a culture and refinement which
will enable him to live his life in
greater sympathy with his fellow-
man. It h« desires to learn the practical details of a trade he should attend a technical school where such
things are taught, University atmosphere is refined rather than practical."
"I think that idealism and practical
knowledge are inseparable," said Professor C. E. Auger of the Department
of Bnglish at Victoria College.
"Some knowledge ot philosophy Is
necessary for a complete understanding of engineering and some practical
knowledge would be of great value ln
the study of philosophy," he declared.

Around the latest and most popular
song hits of the talking screen Fan-
ebon A Marco have produded their
Idea "Soreeniand Melodies," which
will be the stage feature of the Strand
Theatre, beginning next Monday.
Among the famous song hits Included in tbe productions are "Singing In

"Ton Were Meant for fue," and "Pagan
Love Song," which many film fans
will remember was the theme song
of Ramon Novarro'. South Sea picture, "Thp Pagan,"
Raquel Torres boasts the first "acoustic dress" In film history.
in her rolf its Poplta, the convent
girl, In Metro-Goldwyn-Maypr's production of "The Bridge of San Luis Rey,"
filmed with dialogue and talking sequences, Miss Torres had to wear a
roughly-fashioned garment of burlap,
to be historically correct.
Adrian, famous fashion designer,
solved the problem.
He discovered that the acoustic
cloth Used as hanging* on the great
sound stages looks like burlap but is
a. soft as silk, so he borrowed enough
from the engineers to make the dress
the little Mexican actress wears In the
new picture.
"The Bridge of San Luis Rey" ls a
fllmlzation of Thornton Wilder', famous Pulitser prise-winning novel, one
of the literary sensations of the day.
It was directed by Charles Brabin,
with absolutely authentic detail and
fidelity to the original story.

Prof. Oilsou. in a very Interesting

a very graphic description of the life
of the students and professors of the
Middle Ages, "The mediaeval university had no libraries, laboratories, museums, endowments, not even buildings of their own," he said. "There
was no Board of Trustees, they issued
no catalogues; there waa. no college
Journalism nor any outside activities
to condone inside inactivity.    .,
"The relations ot students and professors make a very interesting study.
A professor might not be absent from
a leoture without leave, it he absented
himself without leave he was fined.
It he could net make his lectures interesting enough to have five students
attend, he was considered absent.

last four years have twice reached
the Canadian championships. He failed to see how Bob Brown would be
Incommoded if Varsity played on
their own floor since if throe teama
oan be arranged harmoniously at the
V.A.C. surely four teams oan, even
with the latter, namely Varsity play*
Ing only their home games on the
campus. He brought to the attention
of the meeting that no other Varsity
would even consider playing home
games down town and citing Toronto
as an example he explained that the
latter even played their Ice-hookey
gamea In their own arena.
Doug. Bowes feared that If this re*
quest of Varsity's were acceded to
them the Crusaders would want to
take their home games but to Temple-
ton High, Ed. Paulson averred that
the U.B.C. olub would have more support than the former If allowed to
play their home games on their own
floor, Dr. Shrum stated, "In two years
or so we will have our own stadium
and intend to play all our home
games at Varsity. Why centraljje
games? Let the Crusaders play at
Professor Logan pointed out that
the followers of the game do not
mind where they go as long as they
see good basketball; that the Varsity
is an institution for all time and will
soon have three or four thousand students,* and that no other down town
team could bring up a like claim.
Doug. Bowes emphasised the fact that
the Varsity question is a great gambte,
and affirmed that no further meeting
could be called since the two previous ones had upheld the decision
against Varsity, mul that If such a
meeting were called It would result
In his resignation; on being told that
the U.B.C. delegates to the last meeting had been misinformed and had
mis-stated the case, he still refused to
budge. He advised the students to
canvass the managers of the other
teuniH for a change of decision. Professor Logan gave an hln opinion
that this action would accentuate the
unfavorable light lu which the Varsity
has been represented In the press
throughout the controversy. Despite
all that could be done the league del-
gates did not budge from this attitude
and tho question was left in this state.
It Is now up to Varsity to make the
next move.
