Outlining the provisions of the
treaty of 1901 between U.S.A. and
Canada, wblcb provided for an International Joint Commission, Mr, Lawrence J. Berkeley, secretary of the
latter commission, gave his address
at 11 am. In Arta 100 on Wednesday,
October 11.
The international Water Ways
Commission formed In 1902 by Canada and U.S.A. to investigate certain
problems along the boundary between
the two countries, completed lis work
In, 1909 and before going out of existence recommended tbat an International Joint Commission, possessing
wider powers than the latter be established by the two countries. This
Commission would settle all disputes
arising between the countries. The
promotion of this Commission, said
Mr, Berkeley, was of incalcuable value to tbe weaker country, Canada.
The specific problems that, should
come before the International Commission were problems dealing mainly
wtth the boundary, the navigation on
the lakes and rivers between the
two countries and certain Agriculture
The Commission was to be composed of 6 men, three representatives
from each country. The Commission
had to agree as a whole on all questions discussed before coming to a decision. This method has proved very
successful so far, the speaker stated.
Mr. Harvey introduced Mr. Berkeley
to those present and thanked htm for
his very Interesting lecture.

The best scrap of the season (according to both Sophs and Frosh) got
under way yesterday afternoon in tbe
Varsity Science Building. It started
when the Froah gathered to rescue
some of their number who were undergoing the gentle Soph custom of
"tapping' —and when the frosh gathered th. sophs gathered—and then
the fun began.
For a while the fighting was general, but finally lt centered around
the soph stronghold, the front door.
Falling to take this position by a front
assault the freshies tried a rear attack. The sophs, however, executing
a brilliant piece of strategy, allowed
the frosh momentarily to gain the
door and then proceeded to eject
For those who were not so fortunate aa to get chucked out the door,
tlo cutting and tapping were the order
of the hour.
Coup de Oraee
Aqua pura made its appearance
early in the game When the frosh
manned a hose from the third story
and played it indiscriminately on all
the combatants. The coup da grace,
however, was whea the hose to the
lower ball waa called Into play and
poured cooling streams over tbe combatants until the hall was a elose rival to Hart House tank.
Casualties were evenly divided, ripped shirts, blackened optics aad
ruined suits being aa muoh in evidence during the remainder of the afternoon. Miss Bradshaw la the Bn*

y a constant: "Where's my penT"
"Did any one bring In a wallet T" "Bay.

day with a defiant "Toike Oike" aad

Your editorial in Tuesday's issue

May I suggest that ln so doing you

Vour interpretation of thi. System

down U.D.C.'b ideals ot Honor. Why
not criticise constructively and not
destructively. Remember that aa Editor-in-Chief you hold a position of

one be so foolish as to believe your
editorial, it means that such a one

me, aad to many others, the Honor
System Implies that every one, individually, conduct himself or herself
to bis or her self-respect and to the

you challenge us to support this system to the best of our ability, instead

Dear Sir.'■<-'
Thpse who attended the Frosh
Reception on Friday could not bave
helped noticing tbe large number ot
outsiders who wire present. By outsiders I mean those people who are
not in the slightest way connected
with Varsity, and also I Include those
who bave attended Varsity tors short
period at one time or another,
The Frosh Reception is given primarily to welcome the Freshman class
and make them better acquainted with
the upper years.
How was it that these people were
able to sttfnd, presuming that they
all presented tickets T Ie there no way
of distributing the tickets, so that
only students and those connected
with Varsity, would be allowed to attend?
I ventur- to say that If thla had
been the case on Friday—there would
have been enough room to make dancing enjoyable. As It was it resembled
the last Frosh held in Lester Court,
and those who attended it will remember the crush. It was largely because ot the crowding at Lester Court
that the Auditorium is now used. We
are therefore defeating our own ends
by allowing auch a large number of
outsiders to attend. I may add that
this ie also applicable to claas-partles.

EDITOR, Ubyssey,
Dear Sir: —
The cause of this communication
at this time, is concerning the Freshmen "elections" held laat Monday
noon. The term "elections" is a mask,
sb it were, to the foolishness of the
so-called meeting. To begin with
there were no announcements to the
effect that a meeting would be held
at that time, but at tbe last minute,
understand, It was announced ia the
Cafeteria ihat a meeting would be
held In the Auditorium immediately.
To this ill-timed notification, about
one-fifth of the Freshman class responded, which result oould hardly bu
expected differently. When it came to
the election, the voting waa not held
by ballot, as It moat certainly should
he, .but Instead conalated of etanding.
Consequently many freshmen, In their
more foolish moments, voted for candidates for the same olllce.
It happened, also, that yours truly
was one ot the candidates for president, but being one ot the more "fortunate" people who were not not) Sed
of the election—therefore not being
present, the worthy Junior Member of
the Council crossed his name oil the
list up for election. This method of
procedure was entirely high-handed
and Inefficient.

Class draws, the apparition that
haunts the Blinds of all students,
struck its flrst blow of the year at
the unhappy Seniors. Tremblinff
fourth year men and women were
slowly drawn to Science 100 aa it by
some powerful magnet, such is the
malignant power of the event. Some
came to laugh and went away with
long faces T some came with drawn,
worried faces, and went away the
same; others laughed ln Joyous abandon—they were blank-drawers.
In the crowded room, the president
slowly drew forth the fateful slips of
paper and read forth the names to a
breathless audience. The vloe-presi*
dent also read out names in unison
with the president.
"Mr. Blank," orled the president.
"Miss Dash," droned tha vice-president.
Mr. Blank heaved himself tor a moment and then subsided* back into
his seat. Three hundred necks craned
to the left to See the victim.
Miss Dash quickly rose aid hastily
sat down. Three hundred necks
craned to the right to see the doomed one,
This procedure went slowly on with
a male, then a female rising to show
the spectators their undaunted courage in thi face of danger. At length
the meeting ended with a chorus of
sighs of relief, Joy and mourning.
"Thi lists of partners will be posted to-morrow," remarked the exhaust-
ed president. There Was no escape
from the menace.   A man must gain
te knowledge of a woman's name,
in start a heotic search over tie
campus gnd track down the dance
"A course in detective work should
be Installed In the University," remarked one bewildered recipient of
an unknown beauty.
"Don't bother," remarked his associate; "she probably lives In New
Westminster.' '
As the crowd poured out the doors
there came a huge number ot cries,
"Whod'Ja, whod'Ja flett" from all sides
and no answers from anyone.
Cries of "Cooked! cooked!" assailed the ears of tbe president, who
hotly denied any culinary efforts on
his part as he left the scene of battle. _____

says O.K. Let's go. Ye gods, and
hot chemicals, it bumps!"
Artsman: "Good morning, Joseph,
Yes, I agree with you with regard
to the state of the precipitation. It

Of course, my man, of oourse. Pardon me—it's a habit of mine—but t

1*   ■■
See In me a model Bdltor
Who lends his best ability
To help a Freshette bolster up the
"Ideals" of our college,   ,
And dons (It we should credit her),
Appropriate humility
To "critlolse constructively" despite
his private knowledge,
For the Bdltor, they tell me,
Holds an office full ef "Influence
Upon the Student Body" (though lt
. does not seem to feel it);
And if honest men expel me.
'Tls but befitting recompense
For shameless ways of telling truth
when others would conceal lt
But my "moral plane is lowered"—
Alas, I feel it terribly.
"The glory ot our Alma Mater" seems
to be diminished.
Curses are upon me showered
For I cannot "write admirably."
"Subjected to amusement," (sobI) my
wild career Is finished.
Are quite alright.
But gowns on
Are not
Just think of
Nothing by which
To distinguish a Senior
From the common
Herd of Juniors, Sophs.
And FroBh.
Even the Sophs.
May get
The idea
Of wearing
downs and then
There's no telling
Where the Idea may end.
Imagine a college crowd
Clad in gowns.
It's Just not done
According to Hollywood.
Of course
The gowns afford
Protection ln the Caf. and
They flutter nicely
In the wind, so
The flrst thing we know
The girls will abbreviate
Well, anyways If the
Frosh get going for gowns
We suggest bibs to match,
And bonnets In place of
And rattles for ornamentation.
But, maybe, If they do wear
Gowns it may muffle
Rancous, rowdy and
Frosh orchestra.
*Pon Oar Honor
l waa au autumn evening
The Senior's work was done
And be before the Oounoil door
Was sitting in the sun
Instructing—as it well might be,
A freshman—from Arts Thirty-three.
"We are our Alma Mater'a pride,
Upon us falls the load,
Her name to nave—we must behave-
According to her Code."
"And what is thatt" asks TMriv-thm.
"Ah, that's a deep dark mystery,"
"We have an Honor System here,
We have a Students' Court
To hold our college honor dear
We must perforce report
Any Infringement we may see."
"That   honor?"   murmured   Thirty*
"You must not smoke vile cigarettes
In our fair corridors,
You must not ever make your bets,
With dice upon the floors,"
"But if the Counoil eatekes met'*
"Ah, that's the deep, dark mystery."
"The rule of silence you must keep,
In Chateau Ridington.
Lest you disturb the keeper's oleip,
When his day's work ii done."
"But, sir," sai/e guileless Thirty4kfee,
"Worn some one aitoays tell on met"
'if your best friend pulls out a tag
Outside a lecture room,
Ton must not let a moment lag,
To seal the culprit's doom.
Right on the Instant you should run
And tell the crime to Russell Munn,"
"Now, as our^ Alma Mater's son,
Your honor you must prise,
Do what Is right with all your might,
But sometimes close your eyes.
For some fell misdeed you might see,
Embarrassing the Varsity."
"For Councillors are mortal men
And so the Students court     <
May find something embarrassing,
If you did what you ought—
But they must all rest comfortably,"
"With honor," murmured Thirty-three.
"But, Senior, sir," says Thirty-three,
*' The problem my io«l rends,
Shall I betray the Varsity,
Or tattle on my friends t"
"That question haa a oatch, I see-
It Is a deep dark mystery."
"Bui does the system really work,
And keep our honor bright,   .
Shining throughout confusions murk,
As our great guiding tight t"
The Senior answers wearily,
"It Is a deep, dark mystery."

i Ware Addresses
V. C. U. on Life
"Life is a wonderful thing," stated
Mr. S. V, Ware when he spoke on
"The Source and Power of Life" before a small gathering of the V.C.U.
members, Tuesday, October 15. Mr.
Ware is the Secretary and Missionary
of the Children's Special Service Mission of Canada.
"Thinking people must ask themselves where they came from, what
they are here for, and where they
are going," stated the speaker and
traced the development and gradual
displacement of the many theories
explaining the source of life, The reul
answer is contained in tbe flrst four
words of ths Bible: "In ths beginning
Ood—." The source of lite is Ood.
"In Him Is life," Mr. Ware remarked
on the U. B. C. students who were
sealously filling themselves with know
ledge and wondering what was the
objeot ot it all. To answer this he
quoted the Bible that men are created
by Ood and for His pleasure and added that "We can find our greatest
Sleasure and our greatest success In
The power ot life also presents an
Interesting problem. Scientists say
that everything is composed of electrons. Matter irf* therefore energy
crystallised. But how ls this brought
about? The answer is again contained
in the Bible. The heavens were or>
a ted by the Word of Ood. "He spake
and it was done. He commanded and
it stood forth."
In conclusion Mr. Ware summed up
his address—the source ot lite is in
God, the power of life is in His word,
and the object of lite is to live for
His pleasure.
The flrst meeting of "Der Deutsche
Verein" was held at the home of Miss
Constance Holmes. Officers elected
for the session 1111*10 were: Dr.

noon, after a heated
discussion, during which much of the
customary political loud was freely
exchanged, the Senior Class government ''railroaded" their new tariff
bill through the House. The opposition,' the lunior Year, heatedly opposed the government's proposal that
a higher tariff, was ln the best inter
eats of Canadian industries, and
sought to gain the support of Labor
and Independent parties. But these
two sections were won over to the
government ranks by the eloquence
of Senators Peden and Orauer, who
rose to oratorical heights in dofenss
of the government bill.

''Poetry was a supreme means of
escape from ail he found distasteful
ln life," said William Robbing in his
paper on James Blroy Flecker, delivered to the Letters Club when it met
on Tuesday at the borne of Mrs. H. C
"He created a world of his own
where beauty ruled supreme," con*
tinued Mr. Bobbins. Few have excelled hint-in the art of choosing the
exact word. He revised all his work
with painstaking thoroughness.
The genius of Flecker was in sympathy with the French Parnassian
sohool, whioh insisted on perfection

personal element in his work made
him superior to the Parnassians.
Along with the attraction that oriental scenes had for him went a fondness for classical themes which be
handled with ease and grace.
On the whole, thought Mr, Bobbins,
Fischer's prose is inferior io his poetry, He wrote one imaginative novel and several fantastic bits. 'tThe

earthward progress of the commercial
theatre, a sort of stern Independence;
a nucleus ot true Artists Moving away
from the rottenness, tbs hypocrisy,
the ludicrous falsity of modern theatrical activity. It is in their power to
do away with one going to see a play

A most curious sensation is that
of suddenly, at the sight of someone
or something to be transported back
from present surroundings: a sort of
harking back to old memories. To
enter a street-car, and rub Bhoulders
with a true Russian priest of the old
regime ls like a sudden revelation, a
comparison. He, heavily bearded,
draped in a black flowing cassock,
with a minutely patterned cap slung
on a heavy chain around the neck,
represented the Old World- The grind

haste, the noise, that waa the New

I didn't hear any more. Truthfully, I
was glad.
