Gymnasium Committee Presents
Plan to Secure Building Fund
lover slnoe last summer the Students' Council has been working quietly on tho gymnasium question, nnd
the results ot Its work are now forthcoming. During the summer of 1926,
a  committee  was  Investigating  the
iirospect of a campaign to raise funds
or a gymnasium and Women's Union
Building (It should he noted that the
women were conducting a campaign
toe previous year for their building,
but stopped to co-operate on the larger project) and this committee recommended that a campaign was not
possible since a drive for the endowment of a Chair of Home Economics
Waa being conducted by an organisation outside the University. Subsequent observation of this drive Indicates the impossibility of a student
campaign for a considerable time.
A scheme was then drawn up whioh
Is embodied In the following letters,
and negotiations started with the
Board of Governors and the Provincial Government.
October 19, 1926.
Chairman and Members,
Board of Governors,
University of British Columbia.
Gentlemen:
At a meeting ot the Building Committee of the Students' Council held
n Tuesday, October 19th, the following resolution was passed:
Whereas the Provincial Government
are unable to construct either a
Gymnasium or a Women's Union
Building, and said buildings apparently will not be erected except by some
action of the atudent body.
And whereas a public campaign to
erect such buildings is not possible
because of the present drive for the
foundation of a Chair of Home Economics at tbe University,
And whereas the erection of a
Gymnasium would aid the establishment or a course in Physical Education in due course,
And whereas such buildings are urgently required by the students of the
University.
Therefore be It resolved:
That a Gymnasium be built of semipermanent construction on a permanent foundation having an estimated
life of sixty years,
That a Women's Union Building of
semi-permanent construction be erected having an estimated life of fll'ly
years.
That the sum of ninety thousand
dollars, necessary to construct such
buildings, be obtained as follows:
The student body to obtain a loan
ot ninety thousand dollars from the
Provincial Government through the
Board of Governors of the University;
such loan to bear four and one-half
per cent, interest, and to be repaid ln
fifty equal annual installments of four
thousand, five hundred and fifty-four
dollars each.
The amount of this annual Instalment to be met by an increase of the
Alma Mater fee from seven dollars to
ten dollars; which Increase with our
present enrollment of 1528, would give
an amount of four thousand five
hundred and eighty-four dollars, over
and above the present Alma Mater
revenue.
Respectfully submitted,
Signed by the
Chairman of Building Committee.
J. C. OLIVER, President. A. M. S.
ATTENTION!
Women's Undergraduatea
In spite of the unfortunate conflict In dates between the Women's Undergraduate Society
Bridge and the McKechnie Cup
Rugby Game, It Is hoped that the
women of the University and
their friends will give as much
support as possible to their Society. Tea will be served from f>
p.m. for the moderate sum of 25
cents, and all girls who attend
the game are urged to adjourn to
the Winter Garden for tea. Come
on girls, and bring your friends;
lt will be a fine chance to talk
over the victory!
October  ID, 1020.
Chairman,
Hoard of Convenors,
University of British Columbia.
Dear Sir:
In explanation or the formal resolution which has been presented to you
tonight, we wish to explain further
the financial scheme embodied therein.
It was felt that future student
bodies should carry some of the burden Involved In the construction of
these buildings; therefore we are asking for a long term loan. The rate of
Interest Is low, but since the security
is the enrollment of the University,
backed by the right, of the Board to
collect fees, we feel that it is not unreasonably low, especially since the
project Is In the nature of a Government undertaking.
Any repairs and maintenance would
be taken care of by the certain increase In numbers or the student
body In the future coupled with the
fact that the maintenance for the flrst
five years would be negligible.
The operation ot the buildings will
only entail a slight additional cost to
the existing University services of
the Power House, and could readily
be recovered from rentals obtained
for the use of the Gymnasium for
games and the Women's Union Build-
.IK for Social Functions.
in conclusion, we wish to state that
this report Is of a preliminary nature
only, and that the figures given are
conservative estimates and not actual
prices. We only desire to obtain the
attitude of the Board of Governors on
the general scheme before proceed-
.ng to any further details.
Yours truly,
J. C. OLIVER,
Pres., A. M. 8.
It was soon apparent that the Gov-
rnment could take no action until
toe Legislature sat and recent communication indicates that the plan has
a chance of adoption. The Board of
Governors are .now discussing the
question of raising the Alma Mater
fee, if such is the wish of the Alma
Mater Society the Initiative, In thla
regard, resting with the students.
As a result, the student body will
bo asked on March !»th to authorize
an Increase of $3,00 to the present
$7.00 Alma Mater fee, for the express
purpose of erecting >\ gymnasium, If
(he money can be borrowed from the
Provincial  Government.
It would appear that this is our only
opportunity for a gymnasium since a
public campaign for the necessary
,590,000 could not be other than a
failure at this time and the University is too young to expect such a
large endowment. In addition, the
burden would fall on succeeding student generations as well as the present one, resulting in a more equitable
llstrlbutlon of the cost of this benefit.
Canadian Ruggers
to Meet Meralomas
The big game of the Intermediate
Canadian Rugby League Is scheduled
for to-morrow afternoon In McBrlde
Park, when Varsity meets the Meralomas.
Varsity has beaten the Meralomas
once, but it must be Admitted that
luck bad much to do wtth the result.
Since that game too the Meroloman
have strengthened their lineup considerably by the addition of several new
men. The club has been practising
regularly and should he a very hard
team to beat. The Moralomas are experienced players ami can be depended
upon to put up a really hard scrap.
The Varsity team, however, is not
gotng to give the game away free. The
Blue and Oold team Is Improving constantly, practising every morning. The
squad Is a very strong one.
Altogether there Is every Indication
of a close game wtth a fair chance of
a Varsity victory. If Varsity win tomorrow lt has the league cinched. It
Varaity loses a playoff will be necessary. Under these conditions the whole
team will work hard. Come on out,
Canadian Rugby fans.
WOMEN TO DEBATE
WITH C.P& MONDAY
On the evening or Monday, March
7lb, lu the University Auditorium the
College or Puget Sound and U. 11. C.
will engage In verbal battle. The
cause of this wordy dispute Is: "Resolved that MuhmoIIiiI has evolved the
best form of government in Continental Europe at the present day."
The College ol Puget Sound team
will urrlvc here Monday morning.
Miss Mildred Hawksworth, the lender
of the team, has an enviable reputation as an Inter-Collegiate Debater.
This will he her third year ln such
contests. She debated against U. O.
C. Inst spring and proved herself exceedingly capable both ln thought and
delivery. Miss Lillian Burkeland, the
other member or the C. P. 8. team,
mot our team last year In Tacoma.
These girls will encounter stiff opposition from ouv women's team here.
Miss Kay Baird, the leader, debated
against C. P. 8. last year, and has
built up for herself a forensic reputation that Is of a high standard. Miss
Margaret O'Nell Is a new-comer to
the ranks of the Women's Literary
Society this year, but judging trom
her performance at the try-outs she
should be Impressive. The U. B. C.
team will attempt to show that Mussolini's government Is abominable and
tyrannical and the sooner overthrown
the better.
Away  Debaters
The U. B. C. team which travels to
Tacoma consists of Misses Jean Tolmie and Alice Weaver. Miss Tolmie
or "Jean" as she is popularly called,
will play the leading role. She Is the
most energetic and brilliant or undergraduate women debaters. She is
the only woman In this University
who has ever attained the distinction
ot having taken part ln three Inter-
Collegiate contests,
Miss Alice Weaver Is well-known
for her forensic talents and was a
member of last year's team which almost debated against the College of
the Pacific. Last year she served on
the Women's Literary Society, and
this year she has been elected President of that organization. It Is under
the auspices of that society that the
Debate is being held.
Tickets for the debate are 25c, and
may be procured from any member of
the Women's Literary Society, or at
the door next Monday evening.
Senior Braves Hold
Heap Big Pow-wow
On the evening of the second day
of the third moon, there assembled
wtth great rejoicing all the braves
and maidens of the Illustrious Nation
of '27. For had not epistles been sent
out far and wide, summoning all members of the three tribes to gather together In Joyful celebration before the
final Judgment Day? Even from four
corners of the campus they came, warlike braves from the tribe of Science,
peaceful tillers of the soil from the
tribe of Arglcultuie, am! many braves
and maidens, bearing much wisdom
from the tribe of Arts.
And so they gathered together at
the appointed place, called the Winter Garden, every brave bearing the
head-dress of his tribe, while the
meeting place was adorned with the
tribal blankets and trophies of the
chase—also the war canvas which
had borne them over the Great Water
from the Point called Grey. Many
weve the dances performed by the
braves and maidens, Inspired by the
heating on the tomtoms by warriors
of the tribe of Lee, Lest their
tongues should become parched, much
drink wus provided, while food of
diverse kinds waa devoured hy all,
particularly by the warriors of tho
tribe of Science. The Grand March
of the Nation of '27 was led hy two
of the chiefs in full war paint. Much
dignity was lent to the occasion by
the presence of the following of
great, wisdom: Pres. and Mrs. L. 8.
Kllnck, Dean and Mrs. J. M, Turnbull,
Dean and Mrs. H. T. J. Coleman, Dean
and Mrs. F. M, Clement, Dean M. L.
Bollert, Dr. and Mrs. T. C. Hebb, Miss
Mable Gray, Dr. and Mrs. G. G. Sedgewick, Mr. and Mrs. O. O. Moe.
McKECHNIE CUP FINAL GAME
TO BE STAGED TO-MORROW
Tomorrow afternoon the rugby toam
goes Into action for the last time this
season, the fate of the McKechnie
Cup being decided by this tussle. Last
Saturday In a gamo replete with
spectacular playing, the teum staged
a thrilling last minute come-back to
defeat Vancouver 12-8, this being
the flrst time In three years that
Varsity has beaten the Rep. This
victory tied the series as Vancouver
defeated Varstly in tho first game ot
tho seuson and each team has defeated Victoria.
The crowd at to-morrow's game may
be bigger than last Saturday's, but it
would be utmost Impossible tor it to
be more enthusiastic than the nine
hundred frenzied students who gave
such uproarious encouragement to the
Spring Production
Nears Perfection
The time draws near when "Tbe Romantic Young Lady" will appear before her long-expectant audience. Miss
Frances Dickie, costume convenor, has
been searching the most exclusive ot
Vancouver's shops for bats and gowns
in which Miss Dorothy Pound, as Ro-
sarto, will flit through Sierra's most
amusing ot comedies. Nothing has
been spared In the way of costuming
to make this the most successful play
hitherto produced. Even the gentlemen ot the cast will be seen attired In
the latest Spring modes.
Realising tbe assured success of the
play, the Club will present It In Vancouver for four nights, this year:
March 16-19. And It has acted wisely,
for everyono trom the flapper freshette to the sophisticated senior will
watch with bated breath the series of
adventures which befall Rosario, the
little Spanish girl, durlg the unfolding
of her very charming love-story.
Miss Honor Kldd will delight her
audiences once more in a character
somewhat similar to that which she
took last year. As Maria Pepe, the
quarrelsome old servant of the family,
Miss Kldd will occasion a large share
of the merriment of the evening. Her
special care, Rosarlo's grandmother
(Alice White) Is woll-fttted to advise
her niece, having a past containing
three husbands. Rosario, In fact, Is
showered with advice; from Maria
Pepe, from her friend Irene, the pretty
stenographer (Madge Rankin), and
from her three experienced young
brothers (Bill Buckingham, David
Brock and Jack Nash.) Nevertheless,
she manages quite independently to
bring to a satisfactory close her adventures with the mysterious "Apparition," a part ably played by Mr. Bush
Gibbs.
Tickets are on sale, prices $ .70 and
81.00, and may be obtained from Players' Club members or from the Auditorium Box Office every noon hour
from 12.10 to 1.00 p.m.
lighting fifteen. No email part was
played by the rousing support accord*
ed in the last few minutes of tho
gamo, Inspiring and encouraging tho
team to turn an 8—4 defeat into a
sensational tast minute victory.
Megaphones or no megaphones, every. .
one who safely survived the thrills
of that struggle, will to-morrow afaltt
raise clamorous requests for mora
touch-downs.
The teams are suffering slightly
from minor injuries sustained in tho
last encounter. Mahon and Morris
have sprained ankles and Willis a
strained back. The fact that Noble
has the measles Is probably no news,
but news that two Vancouver stars
have contracted the same malignant
disease may be slight consolation,
Despite quarantine, the appearance
ot the Bllm form of Noble to-morrow
should occasion little surprise, for
Tiny declares that while he can havo
the measles any time, he can only
play in a provincial ohamplonshlp
once In a year. Sinolalr, running
mate of Noble may also slide into
aotlon to make a farewell appearance.
The rest of the team are aU in exeat,
lent condition and will be out to
better last weeks score. While tbe
game was rough on Varsity, tbe Van*
couver injured lint is much higher due
to the smashing Varsity tackling.
Injuries do not handicap Vancouver
to the same extent, however, for thoy
have sixty flrst class senior players
to draw upon for the Rep. team.
Rugby has received wonderful student support this year, attendance at
the big games surpassing all previous records. Twelve hundred Slid
ten students witnessed the Maori
tussle, a very creditable turnout (rota
fourteen hundred students. Over
nine hundred saw each of the Van*
couver games while tho Victoria gam*
the week-end before exams attracted
over five hundred hardy souls.
Whether it is the excitement derived
from the game, the marvellous improvement in the Varsity squad, the
spectacular style of play of the teams
or the reduced rate to students which
attracts them to rugby when other
major activities cry in vain for support, is hard to say, but whatever be
the attraction the team can promise
the crowd  plenty of lt to-morrow.
Support from the stands will play
a big part and with a bumper crowd
assured Chancellor McKechnie may
again obtain his heart's content by
presenting his own cup to his own
university.
NOTICE!
Important Alma Mator Meeting,
Wednesday noon, in the Auditorium.
Subject to be dlsoussed:
(1) Gymnasium.
(2) Amendments to the Constitution to make possible the
new election programme.
At the meeting of the Students'
Council on Monday, February 28th, important information was disclosed by
the President, Mr. John Oliver. He announced that the Board of Governors
ware willing upon two conditions to
allow the construction of a gymnasium: first, the Province of B. C, must
loan the University ninety thouoand
dollars; secondly, the students must
repay this sum nt the rate of four and
one half per cent, yearly for tlfty
years.
Of the amount, seventy-five thousand
dollars would be used to erect the
gymnasium, and the remainder, fifteen
thousand dollars, would be used for
the Women's Building, Both structures would be frame, and therefore,
semipermanent, lt Is likely, however,
that each would have a solid concrete
foundation.
Quite a revenue would be derived
from the Gymnasium since most social
functions would be held In lt. But this
Income would only cover the depreciation and maintenance of the buildings,
and would not pay the Interest on
them      which,      roughly     speaking,
amounts to four thousand five hundred
dollars a year. Consequently, money
must be obtained In another way.
On March 9th, then, an Alma Mater
meeting will be called to discuss raising tho fees to ten dollars. If the students desire a gymnasium they must
pay for It; and the governors wish
them to draw up a resolution authorising a three dollar Increase,
It Is anounced by Mr. Dallas that
tenders have been called for the erection of a Dressing Room, SO feet long
and 30 feet wide, to be situated near
the flrehall, and to cost approximately
three hundred dollars.
The Council granted a request from
the Senior B basketball team for an
advance to pay for expenses Incurred
on a proposed trip to Kamloops. (This
money Is, of course, promptly repaid,
for the journey Is profitable).
Twenty-one dollars was allotted for
the purchase of a doson balls, and
three bats, to be used In lnter-class
competitions.
The Interclass Track Meet will be
held on April 22nd, and not earlier,
due to conflict of dates.

EDITOR'S NOTE
Wo print in this issue aoveral letters from membera of the studont
body whioh are fairly illuminating as expressions of the undergra-
dilate mind when set upon a consideration of student affairs. We
believe that, as ouob, they will prove interesting to our readers and
we refrain from any further comment upon them here. In our next
number we will devote attention to them and the questions thoy raise.
French Clubs to
Produce Plays
Students are reminded that tickets
will shortly be on sale for the two
French plays which are to be produced in the University Auditorium
at the end of March.
In past years these productions
have always had great success, and as
tickets are only 88c it is hoped that
a large number will take advantage
of this opportunity ot testing their
knowledge of French aad of seeing
really good acting.
Students taking part in the plays
are members ot the three French
Clubs, "La Causerie", "La Canadlen-
aeM, and "J/Alouette."
D'Aroy Marsh and Mildred Campbell take leading parts in a very
amusing old French farce, "Maltre
Pierre Pathelln." Old-timers will remember that this was produced In
translation a number of years ago by
the Players' Club.
The other play should prove very
popular with the audience aa it Is a
modern French Comedy. "Le Pacha"
deals with the problems of a man
too muoh Idolised by wife, mother
and sisters. The dialogue Is short
and the action is easily followed,
even by one with only a slight knowledge of French. Norah Haddock, of
Musical Society farce, has one of the
chief roles in this play.
THE BOOK PRIZE
A book prise of the value of $25,
open to all students of the University,
will be awarded for an essay on a
special literary subject. Essays must
be submitted to the Head of the Department of EnjiUsh not later than
April Mth. and must, be on one of the
following:
(1) Kipling's animal stories.
(2) William Morris's, The Defence
of Guinevere.
PLAYERS' CLUB
It is of the greatest Importance that
every member be present at the meeting to be held In Arts 101, at 12.10
Monday noon. Each member Is ex-
peoted to hand In, either Saturday
noon or at the Monday meeting, a
written statement of the number of
tickets left.
.   Other business will Include:
(1) Constitutional  changes.
(2) Report from Pin Committee.
Everyone must attend.
S. C. M.
Dr. Weir of the Faculty of Education addressed a very representative
audience last Tuesday In Ag. 100. He
dealt with the present outlook on
education. The definitions which
Dewey, Ruskln and Huxley had given
to education were reviewed and it
was seen that Huxley in particular
had taken cognisance of physical,
mental and moral needs.
The speaker mentioned olght necessary qualifications for leadership and
said that eminent men such us Lloyd
George, Lincoln and Gladstone passed these ln varying degrees.
In closing, Dr. Weir entered a plea
for Junior High Schools In this province.
He said that by their establishment
the ago of college entrance would be
raised. Thus the social Intelligence
of the students would be brought Into
proper relation with their mental and
chronological age.
Bert Bailey or Arts '27 will be the
speaker next week. His subject will
be "Religion on the Campus." Ag.
100, next Tuesday at noon.
MEN'S PARLIAMENT
DISCUSSFRATS.
The merits and dangers of the local
fraternities were the subject of acrimonious debate at Wednesday's meeting of the Students' Parliament. After
the smoke of battle had cleared away,
It was found that the House had
passed a resolution that "the Students'
Parliament shall recommend a thorough Investigation to be made by a
committee elected by the Alma Mater
Society Into the existing fraternities of
the University of British Columbia,
and that an efficient system ot their
control be put into force." This resolution was not construed to mean that
the Parliament disapproved of fraternities or that there was any specific
charge against them. There were certain tendencies, however, tn all fraternities that might bo detrimental to
university life if not controlled by n
governing body.
The Government had a narrow
escape when a resolution of "no confidence" was defeated by a majority of
two votes. The resolution was based
upon the government refusing to definitely state its policy concerning tho
fraternity question.
It was decided that a Mock Parliament would be held ln two weeks time,
at which members of the Women's
Literary Socloty could actively participate as M. Ps.
Seniors May Found
a Scholarship Fund
A meeting of the combined Senior
classes was held on Tuesday noon ln
Arts '100. A motion to the effect that
a draw be held for the banquet In
the usual way was adopted after some
discussion, The chief business of the
meeting, dealing with the Valedictory
(lift was then brought up. Three suggest Ions were considered, namely, thi;
foundation of a scholarship fund, the
erection of a permanent notice bourd
and the gift of something permanent
to the Library, such as pictures depicting tho history of B. C. The first
two propositions were well supported
by various speakers. All seniors are
asked to put some serious thought on
this matter and come prepared to
make a wise choice at the next meeting. Many consider that the Idea of
a scholarship gives an opportunity tor
starting something really worth while,
while others consider the notice board
to be of more general usefulness.
Everyone must be out at the next
meeting.
DEBATE
The King Edward High School has
definitely agreed to meet the Freshman Clceros tn wordy warfare. As a
result of correspondence between the
M.L.S. and the King Edward Literary

at tho High School's auditorium.
The topic suggested by the High
School ts "Resolved that promotion
In the High Schools should be based

The Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
Your striking and pungent editorials
have been published with sufficient
regularity and lnjudlciousness to at
last Impel me to venture some reply.
While in the flrst instance or two
they were sufficiently interesting and
provoking to warrant space being
given to them, the editorials have
now in the latter instances failed in
their objectives if any were intended.
As you have stated these havo failed
to rouse the student body from Its
lethargic state and consequently serve
no useful purposo, To one of your
discerning mind it would soem that
new tactics should suggost them*
selves and a more successful tone be
adopted to Invigorate the students.
I might also point out that certain
organisations feel very keenly the
lack of attention they have received
at your hands. For instance, the
Students' Parliament believes that all
the limelight should not be played
upon the groups that you have already
selected but that it should have a
share of the glamor and glory, which
a front page editorial receives.
You call, sir, upon the Rooters' Olub
to apologise for what you term "a
regrettable song-book." While hold-
ing no brief for this organisation, I
feel that your remark oannot pass
unchallenged. During the Christmas
vacation I carried one of the boohs
across the Dominion and had it reviewed by students from the universities of the prairie provinces. In tbelr
eyes our publication was the equal,
and In some Oases the superior of
their own. The conclusion I would
draw, Mr. Bdltor, is that you have
too greatly limited your field for reform, and that it Is not only the
U.B.O. but also the U. of A., U. of
Bask, and the U. ot Man., which need
the reviving force of your virulent
pen. One would imagine the "regrettable" fact to be that the "song-book"
was not edited by the editorial staff.
Yours sincerely,
A. S. WHITELEY,
Arts '28.
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
Your invitation for correspondence
came to me through yesterday's editorial dealing in part with the
Rooters' Club. In this letter I shall
try to oblige you.
Your flrst point Is In regard to
Theatre Night. Due to certain unforeseen circumstances we are unable
to stage one. We had hoped to
arrange one and will do so next year,
despite the fact that it does not meet
with your august approval. Did you
get any official word from the Rooters'
Club that there would be one?
In the second place, I am very sorry
to hear that the Song Book does not
meet with your approval. Your predecessor gave It his official sanction,
but editors differ. By the way, the
Rooters' Club received a request tor
twenty copies of the Song Book from
a resident of Erlckson, B. C. The
letter commences: "I lately saw and
admired the book containing a fine
collection of songs." In view of these
two comments I withhold apologies
until I uni convinced that nn apology
is  due.
Thirdly, lie the megaphones. It
grieves me deeply to tell you that
you have heen misinformed. Neither
did the Hooters' Club make a request
for their purchase nor wtre they
asked to do so. Tbe flrst we heard
of the proposal wns through the
minutes of that organization. Whether they are advisable or not we will
not argue here. I like your sentence
"evidently the students don't know of
the lucky circumstances that saved
them from   some   of   the   workings
of this organisation."   It reads like a
jury's report on Raffles & Co.
Fourthly. The following sentence
catches my eye: "If the Rooters' Club
can think of nothing else but ways
to spend the Alma Mater funds there
Is no very good reason for its continued existence." Do you know, sir,
that exclusive of Rooters' hats, ribbons, etc., which pay for themselves,
the expenditure incurred by this olub
amount to about 816, which sum was
for pens, paper, paint, signs, eto.
Possibly you would like to hear of
one of our "Boy Scout" deeds. Do
you remember the visit of the University of Alberta rugby team to this
city last fall? Well the Students'
Council askod us If we would look
after entertainment for them. We
agreed and arranged the following
program: a danoe at Normal Oymn,
Saturday night; a drive around the
city and out to the University, Sunday afternoon, and a dinner in the
evening. Besides paying all expenses
we were able to turn over to Counoil
the sum of $42.50.
The Rooters' Club has practically
arranged for every pep meeting held
In the University in the past two
years. You consider theee meetings
of doubtful advantage; we Judge their
popularity by the student turnout.
Until such time as the attendance at
these meetings drop to ahout fifty persons or until the proximity ot exams
forces us to close, I think it altogether likely that the Rooters' Club
will continue to stage them.
We frankly admit that the Rooters'
Club Is not all that It might be, the
blame ot which I take on myself, but I
do think Its usefulness warrants its
continuance.
In view of the above points the
Rooters' Club considers your attack
unfair and founded on Incorrect information, and we look forward to
the Inevitable editors note. As a
special favor would you, ih that note,
make a few suggestions for the improvement of our workings? Or
would you Just sweep it out of existence?
Yours sincerely,
Wm. fl. THOMSON,
President Rooters' Club.
The Editor "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
During the paBt week or so, the
Ubyssey has been carrying on a campaign for criticism of anything and
everything.
There is one thing I think should
be criticised, and that Is the use of
the "Sky-Rocket" yell at University
games. I have always understood
that this yell was In the nature of a
reward for some rather exceptional
play or other achievement. If this Is
so why Is It that the yell-leader calls
for a "sky-rocket" when an Injured
University player continues the
game? Surely tt Is not very sporting
to reward a Varsity man tn such a
way, when an opponent gets but a
feeble sound of liund-slapplng.
I would like to hear what the yell-
leader has to say about this.

Kditnr,  "UbysHey."
K i r:
I would bo very much obliged If you
or your sporting editor would justify
the rather unfair write-up of the
Okanaguti tour ot the Senior H basketball team. I do not understand it—
I don't, believe you have picked ou
any other athletic teum to give them
such  an   untruthful  write-up.
Previous to the Okanagan tour, the
Senior B. basketball team had received very little mention In your
columns despite the fact thnt they
had won five consecutive league
games. I asked the sporting editor
before we left If we might have some
space and he replied ln the affirmative. We got the write-up in Tuesday's Issue but it was tied to the end
of a club.
Let ua look at the point scores a
moment (which Is the only way Vancouver people are able to Judge the
tour). In the first game we doubled
tho score on Pentlcton 34—IB, In
Kelowna we lost by fi points, 13—11,
while the third game we won 38—
25. Two wins and a 5-polnt toss—
and then our own paper greets us
with "Raskothallers Defeatod on
Tour." And also with the following
"It In a hlackoye for Varsity basket'
hall, when a small town of the hinterland Is able to give a drubbing to one
of its best teams." It Is a black eye
for Varsity when a "small town"
article In Its offlclnl organ refers to
tho Kelowna basketball team In such
terms.
For this article I hold the sporting
editor responsible and would soy to
him that these self-same towns of
the "hinterland" could give him a few
lessons In fair play. Can he not give
Kelowna some credit; I am sure that
his article will please Okanagan
basketball fans. He Is evidently un-
awnre of the strength of the Interior
teams    Last year they were able to
defeat  Westminster  Y  and  Rowing tf
Club C.   A week ago the same team
defeated Westminster Adanacs Senior A, 19—14.
I do not think that any criticism
whatsoever, on the exhibition of
basketball shown on the tour is Justified. The Varsity team held a practice in Pentlcton Thursday afternoon
before their game in that tdwn. In
Kelowna a practice was held Friday
morning. That same afternoon the
players refused an automobile tour
and spent the afternoon ln bed resting for the game that evening.
Throughout the tour the players behaved themselves in a manner befitting members of this Institution.
But it seems that anything that we
might have done to bring the University in touch with the people of tho
Okanagan is undone by your report
ot the trip, In which you slander the
Kelowna basketball team, one of tho
finest groups of men in the province.
Nor does the "sporting" editor appreciate tbe handicap, of three different gymnasiums, lighting systems and
baskets, nor the effect of a different
sleeping place eaoh night.   I should
like very much for you to explain the
article In your editor's note.
Regretfully yours,
Wm. B. THOMSON.

The Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
1 wish at thia time to answer your
clarion call for material for your correspondence column.
The article in your last issue,
headed "Let's Be Radicals," not being on the Muck Page, or over some
person's initials, must express, ln
part, the point of view of the Pub
lioations Board. Such being the case,
I wish to take exception to several
statements. By scrapping and reorganising, at each mistake, no pro
gress oan be made.
"Give a Bolshevist an idea, a lot of
blood and thunder—etc," and he will
accomplish wonders. Like fun, he
will! He gets tired before its time
to start building up again. Being a
Bolshevist, you are using blood and
thunder, (student funds and executive
position) to destroy the world, but
the Idea mentioned above, seems to
be lacking. No true Bolshevist has
an Idea of his own, but this does not
Interfere with the destroying part of
the program.
I. am still of the opinion that the
Student's Council Is doing Its utmost
for the good of the college, hindered
as it Is by such people as yourself.
If the Student's Council see fit to re-
Jeot some of your "wild oats"—sown
on stony ground"—take it for what
you are asking for—destructive criticism In US most subtle form.
Another matter, which I found interesting In last issue, was the way
in which your reporter dealt wtth the
Musical Performance. I don't think
the lady responsible for the report,
knows anything about music. It is
easy to see that hor report, was biased
by personal opinion, I.e. "the charms
of 'Clementine' were shown to their
best advantage."—Rot! Any person
that takes It upon themselves to Bay
that a solo was "spoiled" by a "gesture;" or that the piano solos were
lacking in expression, can only be
decent enough to print their name.
It being your intention to continue
your policy of destructive criticism,
please tuke the trouble to print names,
so that the proper persons get the
• Tcillt for helping I'.H.C. along to a
bigger and better university. There
aro too many "editors'" at present.
I trust you will print this for what
It Is worth.

Dear Sir:
In your editorial of Tuesday last

you call for some remarks trom a

to indulge In some more of your

criticized In the correspondence column of the last edition. I also believe

will add greatly to your grievance.
During the few months that I have
been attending this institution, I
have twice weekly scanned eagerly
the pages of our respected Journal.
To the best of my belief, during this
entire time I have read very little else
than editorials of the most bitter destructive crltlclBtn. The policy of
your paper has been too much for
my comprehension. 1 can not understand your attitude. In your last editorial you attacked the Council, the
Rooters' Club, and that collection of
gullible fools, the Student body. In
your front page you bewail the authorization of the purchase of megaphones tor the barbarous custom of
rooting at gamea. On the next page,
In "Scalplngs," you bemoan the lack
of "pep" in tho students who attended
the games. Such contradiction Is
hard  to understand.
It seems that your paper has a
grievance. It appears, to begin with,
that the University is all wrong. The
Studsnts' Council, tho Men's and Women's Undergrade the Rooters' Club,
and the entire student body is awry.
Everything is chaos. Coudn't you find
something else to complain about if
you tried?
The editor of the paper is supposed
to express a sane opinion on University problems.   A change is desirable
in the policy of our paper.
Yours truly,
S. T. FRASER.
The Editor "Ubyssey"
Dear and Respected Sir:
I realize, tn common with Mr.
Stevens, that In audaciously criticizing one of your lll-ttmed and entirely
unfair editorials, I am giving you an
opportunity for one of those bursts of
brilliant and caustic wit, In which
you delight to Indulge, instead of
answering your unfortunate critics.
I should like to point out, however,
a slight discrepancy noticeable In the
editorials of your paper for March
1st. On pages 1 and 2 you penned a
violent and unrestrained outburst ln
criticism ot everything "collegiate."
(Yes, I know how you hate that
word), In particular at the evincing
of "college spirit," not to say "pep"
at several of the games recently All
year you have criticized the student
body for Its lack of support at all
games, and yet when a little life is
shown at a rugby game, you execute
one of your well-known "summersault" policies and criticize the rooting as "cacophonous outbursts which
encourage rugby teams to slaughter."
You condemn the Rooters' Club as a
"superfluous organisation which has
yet to apologize for a regrettable
song-book," Yet ln your early issues
you condemned tn terms equally
strong, thoie people who did not have
Senior Girls to Play
Canucks in Final Game
The Senior A Basketball women are
about due for a little support from the
student body. The big game of their
season is Saturday night in the Y.M.C.A., at 8 o'clock. The game, a playoff
for the city championship, is against
tbe Canucks with whom tbe Varsity
quintette is tied tor the leadership of
the city league.
Bach of these teams has lost one
game to the other, which shows how
evenly matched the two squads are.
The girls say that the reason for their
defeat was lack of support—the right
of any toam representing its Alma Mater. The Senior A women have been
playing splendid basketball all season,
with little or no encouragement from
the students and they certainly deserve some of that spirited support
which wins games for Varsity. Let's
havo a crowd ot rooters out to-morrow
night I
All the old Varsity stars will be on
hand. Gay and Winona, Thelma and
Tarchy, Rene and Jean, Red and
Claire, will all be there, doing their
best to push the old ball in the basket.
It should not be necessary to have a
basketball dance to get a crowd to a
basketball game. It is the team that
needs support not the orchestra. Students are entreated to come out and
support the team.
BADMINTON
The University Badminton Finals
have been postponed to Monday,
March 7th, at the Drill Hall. All
tournament matches except the finals
must be played on Saturday evening,
at King Edward Gym. After the final
games, the cups will be presented to
the winners. In the final of the men's
singles, Bill Argue will play Jaok
Sparks of Arts '20, who has reached
the final by defeating M# McFarlane
and Ian Stevenson.
The men's doubles event will be
contested by Bill Argue and Med. McFarlane, against I. H. Polly and N.
Solly, both of Arts '80.
enough college spirit or small change
to buy one of these same regrettable
Bong-books.
In exact contradiction to your opinion, as expressed in the aforementioned article, there appears on page
3 of the same Issue an article entitled
"Scalplngs." It is given an equally
strong condemnation of those students who were at the last McKechnie
Cup game. It criticizes them because
they "did NOT cheer the team as
they left the  Held.    They did  NOT
rush out and carry the players	
aS the team deserved. They did NOT
come- forward ln a body to shake
hands with those players who had
done so much for the University.
They did NOT stage a demonstration
in front of the grand-stand, as befitting the occasion, or parade downtown tn their enthusiasm."
In the same Issue in which you
condemn Theatre .Nights as fiascos
and "pointless parades of college
.spirit," and evince your august dislike of rugby games, there Is, published under your supervision, an exceedingly mushy a.id "rah - rah" type
of poem entitled "We'll Cop the Cup,"
apparently written ln an endeavor to
arouse some of the enthusiasm which
you condemn so loudly and violently.
I am quite aware that this article
and poem were not written by your
august self, but they were published
with your consent and In exact contradiction of your latest policy as expressed in your editorial "In Spite ot
Council and Megaphones."
In your editorial itself you contradict yourself flatly. You regret the
showing of so much "pep" and "college spirit" at those barbarous Institutions, rugby games and yet you
comment on the student body being
dead on its feet.
But why continue? Examples like
these could be cited by the dozen. No
one objects to your criticism. It is
so overdone now that lt is laughable,
but by all means let us have consistent criticism.
Incldently a very probable cause
for your violent criticism of the Students' Council, and especially of the
Junior Member, Is given in the first
four lines of your editorial of March
1st, entitled "The Junior Member,"
In closing I may say that In spite of
your assurances that destructive criticism, even from a member of Arts
'30 would be welcomed, I have no
expectations of this letter over seeing
the light of day In the columns of
your invaluable (!) paper, but even
so It will reach your august eyes, for
which purpose It Is dedicated by Its
composer.

ROWERS READY TO
MEET WASHINGTON
With the Washington race less than
three weeks away, the Varsity Blight
is now practising ao often as it is possible to get the men out. On Monday,
at dusk, they were practising on the
rough waters of Coal Harbour. The
boat was kept well in the sheltered
water, as the waves were very high.
Alec Millar, the crew's regular stroke,
was absent through 111 health, and a
substitute took his place. A few short
stretohes were rowed at a low racing
speed. On Wednesday afternoon the
crew held a long practice. With coach
"Bimbo" Sweeney following them on
the launch, they went almost to the
Hecond Narrows Bridge. The slow
stroko was varied occasionally by
bursts of racing: but moro practice
will bo required before the fast stroke
can be used without splashing and
making the shell roll,
Due to generosity of the Vancouver
Rowing Club, tho University now has
the use of some lapstreak "fours." In
view of this, the second Eight has been
broken up into two Pours, which will
row against the city club on March
20th. This will also allow the Varsity
crew more time to use the "Washing-
tonla," which is the only eight-oared
boat the University has at its disposal.
First Soccer
aji ■——■a
Nanaimo City will provide the opposition for the Varsity flrst soccer
team to-morrow afternoon, at Athletic
Park, and the kick-off is timed for
2.46 p.m. The Nanaimo eleven look
like champions. Tate and Edmonds,
their goal-tender and full-back respectively have been selected to fill these
positions on the Canadian All-Star
team which is to tour New Zealand.
Anderson, however, Is no mean
goalie himself; and after Varsity's
showing against St. Saviors last Saturday, with a weakened line-up, the
Varsity eleven, when aided by the
presence of their regulars, should
give Nanaimo City a great game.
Moreover, the Varsity players will be
In better condition for the game than
they were last Saturday. "If the
weather conditions are suitable for
football", said Manager John Liersch,
"Our team will make Nanaimo go
their best, and they will have to look
to their laurels If they Intend to win."
