speaks ON
Discussion  of  Works  of g^ague
In  Maintenance  of  International Problems
"The world today is in need of both
the support and the example of the
younger generation to prove to the
world that the true philosophy of life
is based on peace and not on war,"
declared Rev. Col. G. O. Fallis in a
much appreciated lecture on "The
Problem of World Peace." delivered to
the students in the Auditorium last
Friday noon. Col. Fallis appealed to
the students, as those who "had a
good deal of tomorrow in their hands,"
to assist in leading the thoughts of
men towards the necessity for universal cessation of strife.
The speaker, in closing, offered several suggestions whose adoption
would, he claimed, aid materially in
establishing world-wide peace. These
included the elimination of international hatreds by suppression of unwarranted prejudices and by forgetful-
ness of past wrongs, the eradication
of ignorant dislikes by broader and
more careful education on the schools,
and the setting-up of a spirit of amity

Second Debate
To Be Held Soon
Lome Morgan and Billy Murphy
to Battle with California
The second international debate of
the term will take place next Tuesday, February 19th. when L. T.
Morgan. Arts '24, and Wm. Murphy,
Arts '26. will uphold the affirmative
in a debate against representatives
of the University of California. Great
interest has been aroused on the
forthcoming contest, so that a large
attendance  is  expected.
Lome Morgan, the well-known de-
ba*«—-oT~-\rts '24, will lead the U.
B. C. team. Lome is an experienced
and successful debater, having twice
figured in inter-collegiate contests,
speaking at California last year and
at Idaho two years ago, and being
on  the  winning  side   in   each  case.
"Billy" *Murphy, second speaker
for ^Varsity, is participating in an international debate for the first time,
but has an enviable record as an
inter-class debater. He is also well-
known for his activities as secretary of  the  Men's  Literary  Society.
On Saturday afternoon, John S.
Burton and L. Howard Goodwin leave
for Berkeley to defend the negative
there. Both are experienced debaters and are prepared to give California a close  battle.
The debates will be decided by an
official decision in both cases, but a
vote of the audiences will also be
Tickets are on sale at noon today.
Geh Ternan has played his last
game for Varsity, and as captain of
the rugby squad for the yast two years
he has won an enviable record. Under
him the Varsity boys have captured
six rugby cups, a record for the province. Geh scored two of the three
drop kicks made this season in Vancouver, and that of his last game is
one of the best kicks ever made in
the city. Besides scoring these four
points last Saturday he scored Varsity's only try after Hyslop had made
the opening. Geh expects to line up
with  the Native Sons next year.
Rugby Men Annex
Their Sixth Cup
Tisclajl  Cup  Carried  Off  In
y Saturday's  Game
Geh Ternan's drop kick, Geh Tertian's try on Hyslop's opening, and a
convert by Val Gwyther, gave Varsity
a 9—0 victory Saturday in the Tisdall
Cup final when the Collegians met the
Native Sons and carried off the sixth
rugby cup of the season. Ternan's
drop kick from thirty-five yards out
was the feature play of the game. The
ball was heeled from Varsity's scrum
into Geh's hands, and although he was
at an impossible angle he took the
chance and in spite of having the wind
against him, he was able to drop the
ball exactly between the posts.
Gordon Hyslop gave Geh a wonderful chance tor the only try of the game
half way through the second period,
when he passed to Ternan after crossing the line. Val had an easy shot at
the goal.
The score in no way indicates how
the play went, for during the whole
time the Native Sons had a large

Various Plans Outlined for Raising Funds for Athletic Equipment.
Chairman of Various Committees Address Students
The CAMPAIGN is well away to a
good start. At the meeting held in
the Auditorium last Tuesday noon the
students were informed of the progress which has already been made.
This consists in the formation of capable committees, in the drawing up
of plans for raising money, and, most
important of all, in the inception of a
healthy   CAMPAIGN   bank  account.
Mr. Kenny Carlisle, chairman of the
CAMPAIGN Committee, stated that
the objective of the CAMPAIGN
is ten thousand dollars, a goal which
it is hoped will be reached by March
15. The money will practically all
be spent on establishing playing
Bob Hedley, chairman of the Works
Committee, stated that the site which
had been chosen for these fields has
been abandoned, owing to the excessive cost of drainage: but that a more
tractable though smaller site has been
chosen. Mr. Hedley appealed for active physical support on the part of
the students, at the same time warning them that the success of the
CAMPAIGN depended On more enthusiasm than was apparent from
the  attendance  at   the  meeting.
Hugh McCallum. Ag. '24, chairman
of  the  Publicity  Committee, declared
Saturday evening, before a large
crowd. Varsity drew with Victoria in
the annual basketball gajnes. The
Varsity women's Senior H\ team defeated Victoria by a~ score of 11—0,
and the men's Intermediatq^A^lost to
the visitors By i6—25. VarsiTy Senior
B defeated Crescents, 2$—19, in an
exhibition game.
After the games, the crowd danced
till midnight. The floor was a little
rough, and the orchestra was somewhat flat at times, but everyone had
a good time.
The women's game was rather slow
and featured by hard checking on both
sides. The Victoria girls seemed lost
in the strange gymnasium, although
they tried hard enough. Flo Musgrave
at centre played a splendid game for
the visitors, and Patsy Robinson was
the outstanding player on the Varsity
In the Intermediate game the lighter
Victoria boys, playing without their
regular centre, gave the Varsity team
a good lesson in combination play.
The Varsity men worked hard, but
they did not have the snappy passing
of the Victoria squad. Jeff Bothwell,
the diminutive Victoria forward, was
the most outstanding player on the

A gala night of dancing, vaudeville,
scientific feature displays, side shows,
mah jongg, etc., etc.-, was the vision
presented to the minds of the enthusiastic students- by Sherwood Lett,
chairman of trje Alumni Committee.
Mr. Lett carefully explained the lively
and original program which the U.
B. C. graduates are preparing to put
on in the Willow Huts on March 15.
The purpose of the entertainment is
to raise money from the public for
the  CAMPAIGN  fund.
A nineteen-hundred dollar bank
account is the commendable result
of sacrifices and savings on the part
of various student organizations to
date, according to Leonard Gaddes,
Chairman of the Contributions Committee. Mr. Gaddes mentioned a few
of the sources from which the students hope to raise money in the
near future. These include a Rowing Club dansant, and a dance by
the   McKechnie   Cup 'tWam.
A resolution to donate the balance
of the Caution Money remaining at
the end of this term to the CAMPAIGN funds will be read at Friday's meeting. Every student is requested to be there as the adoption
of this resolution to be effective
should also be unanimous.
The personnel of the CAMPAIGN
Committee, as announced, by Jack
Grant at Tuesday's meeting, is as
follows: —
Kenny Carlisle, chairman; Isobel
Russt-1, secretary: John Oliver, treasurer: the crairman of the sub-committee: three members of the Alumni,

University students should make a
special effort to hear Bliss Carman
next Wednesday in the, First Congregational Churchy Among those who
have made a study of our national literature, the consensus of opinion
seems to be that Bliss Carman ranks
as our best Canadian poet. In his recital on Wednesday he will read and
comment upon those poems which
have appealed most strongly to the
educated public. As this will be his
only public appearance in Vancouver,
students who wish to make sure of
hearing him will do well to secure
their tickets early, at Ireland & Allan's bookstore. For the convenience
of those who cannot do this, tickets
will be on sale in the Front Hall on
Monday during the noon hour.

Dr. Plaskett^'<^4
The Physics building was crowueit
to overflowing last Thursday evening
when J3i\_LPlaskett, head of the
Astrophysical Observatory on Little
Saanich Mountain, speaking under the
auspices of the Vancouver Institute,
gave an open lecture on "The Evolution of the Stars."
Magnified photographs of nebulae,
star maps, and other photographs and
diagrams  illustrated  the lecture.
The primal cause, insofar as we are
at present able to comprehend cause,
of stellar evolution was the force of
gravitation,  the scientist declared.
If matter is assumed as having been
present in the universe in simple
form when evolution commenced,
then the subsequent developments in
the formation of the stars can be more
or less conjectured from the nebular
hypothesis,   the   lecturer   explained.
Dr. Plaskett made it understood that
he did not believe irrevocably in this
theory, but merely accepted it as a
working hypothesis until such-rime as
a better one was brought forward.
The speaker gave a short resume of
the history of astronomical research
in connection with this subject, and
also discussed the various theories
current among the astronomers of

i      Defeated by Elks
Students   Have   Hard   Luck   In
Losing Saturday's Game
The Vancouver Elks had more than
their share of the breaks when they
defeated the fast-stepping Varsity
eleven by a two to one count in a
league fixture at the Con Jones enclosure last Saturday. Although the
students may be criticized for lack of
finish in front of their opponents goal,
nevertheless even the most ardent
supporter of the Brother Bills could
not but admit that diminutive Lefty
Delcourt literally had horseshoes
hanging on his goal posts. The students were at all times dangerous and
scored two hardly earned goals, one
of which was disallowed, while the
Elks counters came from a penalty
and a fluke goal in the dying
moments  of the  game.
Varsity started out well, when after
ten minutes of play Tommy Wilkinson headed in a cross from Buckley's
boot that had Delcort beaten to a
standstill. Prom then on till the end
of the half the collegians seemed content to rest on their laurels. Finally
Deans had the misfortune to handle
in the dreaded area, and Howden gave
Mosher no chance to save when he
took the resultant penalty kick.
After this reverse the students
livened up, but the forward line missed
Huestis, the aggressive wing man being laid up owing to injuries. In the
second period Mosher hardly had a
shot but the Elk custodian was kept
busy and made one or two marvellous
saves, and may be justly proud of his
With only a minute to go and the
score tied, Hazeldine tested Mosher
with an easy shot which Heggie held
a little too long and was charged, and
before he could recover Cameron tapped the ball into the net and the Elks
had won.

Odd Point—Wilkinson  Stars
for Varsity
Last Monday evening Varsity's Senior A squad lost to the Y. M. C. A.
by "23^-22, In the hardest fought and
most exciting contest of the season.
Two overtime periods were played before the final score was reached. The
Varsity men put up their strongest fight
of the year and deserved to win, but
luck was against them. The game was
featured by close checking on both
sides. Shortly after the opening whistle sounded, Varsity led by 7 to 2,
through the efforts of Tommy Wilkinson and Les Bickell. However during
the latter part of the half the Y. M.
drew up on their opponents, and the
half-time score was 11—10 in favor of
Near the beginning of the second
half, Referee Yeo chased Ralston to
the showers for an exceptionally unsportsmanlike attack on Wilkinson.
With ten minutes to go, the Y.M.C.A.
had a 6-point lead. Wilkinson and
Bickell evened the score and the half
ended with the score 18—18.
In the first overtime period Wilkinson scored 4 for Varsity, while Phipps
and Shiles dropped in a basket each
for the Y. M. Shiles want to the
bench at the end of the period with
4 personals.
At the beginning of the second overtime period Tanny Butler scored on
a free throw, and with only a few seconds to go Robson, who had been trying long shots all evening without success, dropped in the winning basket
from centre floor. Every man on the
Varsity line-up put up a great game.
Tommy Wilkinson gave an exceptionally fine exhibition, out-scoring Shiles
at centre by 11 points.

It is generally agreed that the bookstore should be taken over by the students when the move is made to Point
Grey. The adjutages of student control in this department are sufficiently obvious to need no discussion here
The numerous ■difficiulti'es that stand
in the way of such an undertaking,
however, seem to be frequently overlooked. Although these obstacles are
by no means ! insurmountable, they
must not be disregarded, as they are
apt to be, in .considering the feasibility  of the  project.,,
In the first place' suitable quarters
will have to, be provided, and it is a
question whether any such will be
available. The erection of a special
building might have to be undertaken,
and this, added'to the expenditure involved in taking over the old stocks
and purchasing new ones, would be a
considerable drain on student finances. Then again, a manager would
have to be appointed and paid on a
twelve-month :basis. When we consider that the receipts from our Alma
Mater fees are now about eight thousand dollars, a. salary of from fifteen
hundred to two thousand dollars a
year assumes significant proportions.
Student control of the bookstore is
but one of many objectives that we
should strive to attain. The time will
come when there will be a co-operative store at Point, Grey and a University daily printed by a student-
owned and controlled printing press.
These developments are essential to
University life and-are inevitable. We
must, however, temper our enthusiastic pursuit of them by a steady consideration of the difficulties involved.
/The "Ubyssey,". with its staff of
thirty workers, seldom asks foi« original contributions from the remainder
of the student body, but we feel that
this is an opportune time to send out
a call for material for the spring Literary Number. We are always assured of meritorious work from certain
regular contributors, but in a University composed: of. twelve hundred students there must be many more who
can write acceptably.
If even a tenth of the poetry that is
written in secret were of a fairly high
standard, there would probably be
enough to overflow the four-page supplement;   and   some   who  have   found
that in their essays a certain style is
productive of marks that satisfy, might
try this style with effect in original
work. New contributors are always
welcome, but this year they are absolutely necessary: for the members of
the "old guard." who gladdened the
heart of many a Literary Editor in the
past, are graduating remorselessly.
Their example alone should be enough
to inspire the younger students with
the desire to imitate them.
In previous years the Supplement
has maintained a healthy literary
standard, and it is hoped that this
standard will be at least equalled this
spring. Poems and short stories are
particularly in demand, and sketches
or1 incidents can also be used. Although former Supplements have contained very little of the humorous,
contributions of a humorous nature
will be accepted, provided that they
have genuine literary merit. Those
wishing to contribute should address
their manuscripts to the Literary Editor, Mr. W.. C. Murphy.
Alter much deliberation it has been
decided that Theatre Night will be
held this year as usual. Once again
rises tlie old question of whether or
not it is advisable to continue the
practice of this annual function. If
the exhibition is to be of the weak and
pointless nature displayed in previous
years, we would emphatically say:
"Drop it." The only thing that saved
tlie performance from absolute failure
last year was the one-act play "Poor
Old Jim." put on by members of the
Players' Club. The skits in question
were pointless and boring, and compared very unfavorably with the regular Orpheum bill, the standard of
which is not too elevated for University students to equal if not surpass.
Although Theatre Night last year
left itself open to a great deal of
criticism, there is a natural reluctance to abolish an established institution. The dropping of inter-faculty
skits is inevitable and also desirable,
but if the Players' Club could be induced to stage a one-act play, and if a
little local colour could be infused into the Orpheum acts, the evening, with
the help of a few college yells and
songs, would probably "go over." In
this way Theatre Night might still be
enjoyed, without the students being
humiliated by the unoriginal and tasteless performances of their representatives. It is regrettable that at such
times we are unable to make a good
showing when we appear before the
public, and regrettable, too. that we are
unable to leave it with no better impression  than  that  of mediocritv.
Mrs. Jamieson gave an interesting
talk to the eirls at the Women's Lit
on Wednesday, 6th. She spoke on
"The Spirit of the New Age" and
stressed the change in theory in re
lition. politics, economics and psychology, and took as the slogan of
the age; "Let man know and then
trust him" as contrasted with the
older one of "Teach man so that he
may do his duty." Mrs. Jamieson
quoted from H. G. Wells, G. B.
Shaw and others. In evolution she
spoke of the change from the mechanical forces of natural selection to
the idea of the life force working
through   the   individual.
She stressed the challenge of the
new age to the old—it's challenge to
narrow nationalism and above all its
demand for honesty and frankness.
This note she traced .through the field
of religion, speaking of the growth
of the new ethical religion of humanity, through politics, social life
and economics. She advocated the
need of applying psychology to economics, mentioning in this connection
Parker.   Berte,   Russel   and   others.

Dear Sir:—The Governor's Cup Competition is a larce. The athletes that take
part in it. and the officials that conduct
it. regard it as an ordeal that has to be
gone through annually. Where are the
wildly excited spectators that are supposed to get such a kick out of if.' Not
at the rugby or soccer games certainly.
Those who have tried to line teams up
know what a hard job it is. Such events
as the track meet are different, they
derive their interest from themselves,
not because they are in the Governor's
Cup   competition.
One of the arguments put forward by
enthusiasts is that "new" material is developed for our teams. To my knowledge none of our football or basketball
teams have derived any material from
this source, but some of them have had
a number of their players crippled in
interclass games so that they couldn't
play against outside teams. It is the
same old bunch that go in for everything, from rugby to badminton, and it
is manifestly unfair to the athlete himself that he should be called upon by his
class to ditch labs, in order to defend
the "honor" of his class whem perhaps,
his academic record is already suffering
by his upholding of the University's
suit us   in   outside   competition.
J heard some criticism being leveled at
the soccer team for their refusal to take
part in interclass soccer. Personally, 1
think the soccer club showed their College spirit by not participating in the
inter-class games, they have more competition than they know what to do with
in the Vancouver League. Herein might
be a solution to the inter-class games, if
each class were awarded a scale of
points according to the merits of the
sport and the team that their athletes
were on and these athletes not be called
UMon to play in the interclass games.
Then   we   would   know   the   best  athletic
year   and   also   new   material   would   be
Some such measure as this must be
adopted or the Governor's Cup competition must be abolished. As it is being
conducted at present it is a pure waste
of time.
Yours in the best interest of Sport,

S.  C.  M.  AO-AIN.
Editor  ■j'E'bygyey."
Dear ISiT:—This S. C. M. question,
raised in your columns, would seem -to
require a little clearing up. and I offer
this as a contribution. The trouble lies,
I am convinced, in a very confused conception of the nature of the S. C. M. on
the part of the majority of the students.
The first writer on this subject in
your last issue, spoke on behalf of those
who "do not Haunt their opinions brazenly before the world." Such a Haunting of opinions is not the purpose of
the S. C. .\I. It is merely a group of
indents trying to help each other in
their search for religious truth. We
know that many of the great souls of
the past have lound the highest truth
on the mountain-tops of lonely meditation, but we are not all such .great souls,
and 1 would point out that their truest
greatness was in this, that they came
down from their mountain-tops to help
the    rest   of   us.
The same writer accuses you of a
"confusion of theological orthodoxy with
true religion." I would like to warn her
against confusing theological orthodoxy
with the aim of the S. C. M. It aims
chielly to find "the supreme revelation
of God and the means to the full realization of lift-," and though it suggests that this may be found "in Jesus
Christ," and seeks it there, it does not
attempt to prevent its members from
looking elsewhere. It seeks first the
truth, whether or not this accords With
that "religious orthodoxy" towards
which there is such "an antipathy that
is in harmony with the foremost thought
of   the   time."
Yours    sincerely.   ,■
V       Arts   '24.
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—Some of us are pern
to know why, in one of the letters that
appeared in your last issue. th^S. C. My'
was thrust into prominence aaVprobjibfy
willing- to "accuse the whole/Lrn4v£rsity
of religious apathy or bigoted atheism."
1 do not think any member of the organization any more than yourself, Mr.
Editor, would consider this statement
as describing the attitude of students towards religious matters. What members do regret, however, is that of all
those against whom such an accusation
would lie an injustice, so few availed
themselves of what the organization
tried  to do at the recent conference.
Unfortunately the S. C. M. appears to
suffer from a distasteful connotation,
but surely it is not thought by any one
that it makes the same travesty of religion as the street-corner enthusiast,
or is insincere when inviting discoverers of pure and true religion to make
their intelligence known, close acquaintance with the nature and aims of the
organization would. I am sure, "clear
mi" any misunderstanding. As to the
efforts "and worth of the S. C M. It
seems to me that it is much needed in
a commuuity where so many think you
must either subscribe to the creed of
some back-alley mission, or take yourself, bag and baggage, out of Christianity entirely.
Yours   truly.

The exhibition game between Varsity Senior B and Crescents was prob-
abiy-trre"SesFone of the~evening. At
half-time the score was 11—8 in favour of Crescents. In the second period Varsity crept up until the score
was 16—17 against them. Then Heilly
Arkley, the crippled captain, sent on
Arnold Henderson at centre. The
Crescents were about all in, and within three minutes Varsity had scored
ten points, and at full time the score
was 28—19.
The teams were:
Victoria College Girls—J. Musgrave,
French, F. Musgrave, Bennett, Ross.
Varsity Senior A—Russell (2), Robinson (4), Mackinnon (2), Swencisky

by the example of the educated young
people of today.
Before offering these solutions of
the problem, Col. Fallis traced the
history of the world-peace movement
from its humble beginnings of a century ago, amongst the Quakers and
similar organizations, through to the
present day. The movement had received a setback by that reaction of
the last two decades which had culminated in the tragic conflict of 1914-
18. Since then the pendulum had
again swung back to the side of peace,
so that today there were probably
more thinking people interested in the
campaign for world tranquility than
ever before. The League of Nations,
(hough certainly not perfect, at least
represented the highest concrete evidence of the work of this movement.
The serious difficulties in connection with the problem were treated.
These were four-fold: the "thug"
spirit of preparing for war in times
of peace, the popular fallacy that war
was a biological necessity, the false
romantic appeal of fighting, and the
imperial dogma of "what we have we
hold." found in other national policies
besides that of Britain.
Some of the imperative reasons why
an earnest and immediate attempt
should be, and was being, made to
bring about world peace were dealt
with. Briefly these fell under the
headings of economic waste, loss of
human life, the inefficacy of war as a
permanent means of settling disputes,
and the destruction of irreplaceable
works of art. Col. Fallis supported
his arguments in a convincing manner
by apt statistical references.

Theatre Night (which is set for Feb.
28th) will take on a new meaning if
plans for linking it up with the Campaign go through. "Brick" McLeod

Varsity "show-nite." Students with
suggestions for improving Theatre
Night along these lines are asked to

Victoria College ruggers suffered a
6—5 defeat at the hands of Varsity's
intermediates last Saturday in a closely contested game at Brockton Point,
as a curtain raiser to the Tisdall Cup
final. Phillips scored Varsity's first
try early in the first period, when he
dashed over from a five-yard scrum.
Seymour added three more points
when he crossed following a throw-in
near the line.
Mathewson of the Victoria boys
scored the try for the visitors early
in the second half, when he received
the ball at centre and outdistanced
everyone for the feature play of the
game. McLean kicked from an easy
angle and added the two points for the
convert. During the rest of the half
no further score was made.

of him and said yes, they might, but
it was pretty hot stuff just the same.
I asked him if he didn't thin they
were beautiful girls, and he said yes,
he thought they were much prettier
than the two fellows that had acted
just before them. Anyway, Gussie,
Billy said he thought it was the best
part of the whole program, and Billy
] always knows best.
Hang it all, there's the bell and I've
got a lecture in Philosophy. Goodbye Gussie. I'll tell you some more
about  it   in church  next   Sunday.
Leonora at the lArts Smoker
Oh Gussie. Gussie. I had the most,
wonderful time imaginable last Friday night. You'd never guess where
I was, Gussie. No it wasn't High
Jinks, it was the Arts Smoker, and
Billy took me. You see, first of all I
was going to take Billy to High Jinks
with me. I got him all dressed up in
a girl's dress and everything so that
you'd never guess he was a boy—unless you looked at his feet. I couldn't
find a pair of girl's shoes there big
enough to fit him. Billy has awful
big feet. Anybody that looked at his
feet would have known that he was
a boy so we had to give the whole
thing up.
Anyway. Gussie. Billie said that seeing he couldn't go to High Jinks with
me he'd take me to the smoker. At
first I didn't know whether I really
ought to go. but Billy said it was the
right thing to do, and Billy always
knows best, so I decided I would. As
soon as I said I'd go Billy went and
got me one of his old suits and a pair
of his boots, and I put them all on.
It was a lot. easier for me to get into
his boots than it. w~as for him to get
into mine. I got a skull cap and put
it on over my hair, and when I was
finished. Gussie, you would have sworn
that I was a boy. And then we went,
to the Smoker.
Gussie. it was wonderful. As soon
as all the fellows had finished trying
to smoke their corn-cob pipes (Billy
sucked a whole box of matches
through his), some of the Profs, got
up on a table and started telling the
most wonderful stories you ever
heard. First of all, Professor Hal
got up and told us one about "II
Echappe." Dr. Ashton is going to explain the point of it at our next
French lecture. When Prof. Hal
was through Dr. Winston got up on
the table and gassed for ten minutes
about seasick Scotchmen trying to
swear in French.
But Oh. Gussie, Gussie, the next
professor that got up on the table
was the cutest, dearest, sweetest,
lovliest little one of them all. I think
I'm going to get a crush on him. He
told us a story about a man who had
worked for a farmer all day, and was
paid three little nickles for his
trouble.    "I  can  read  your character
The Girls' Track Club, which was

by these nickles," said the man. "Do
it," said the farmer. "By the first
nickel," replied the man, "I know you
are a Scotchman; by the second I ,
know you are a bachelor; and by the j
I bird I know that your father was a
widower." Isn't that killing, Gussie?
Oh yes, and he told us another one
about Mr. Gladstone, and what happens to the poor bald headed people in
Do you know, Gussie, I didn't like
the next part of the program one bit,
it wasn't like the first part of the program, it was too rough. But Billy
said that, as tar as roughness went, it
didn't have anything on the first part,
and Billy always knows best. You
see. Gussie, they had some of those
Jew- Gypsy Japs fighting in the ring,
and I was sure they were going to
hurt each other. I wanted Billy to
go and separate them, but he said he
didn't think he'd better. Billy always
knows best, so I didn't say anything
more about it.
As soon as that rough stuff was
through, Gussie, they had a Pantages
skit from one of the shiekiest men
you ever saw. He played a mouth-
organ and he extracted the most
delicious sounds imaginable from it.
I'd far sooner hear him than I would
Heifetz. When he had finished with
the mouth-organ, he played the piano
and tried to sing a heartrending song
about the Titantic. But tlie poor man
couldn't sing so he talked it  instead.
The bagpipes came next. Oh, t.ney
were alright, Gussie, but after that
heavenly music on the mouth-organ
they sounded pretty flat. The bagpipers got exhausted after a while
and two real niggers from the Pan
came and had an argument in front
of us. They were awfully funny, even
though they did get mad at each
other. Do you know, Gussie, by the
accent that one of them talked with,
I think he must have been a Negro
Jew; just the same as there are Russian Jews and  Irish Jews,  you know.
Oh Gussie, Gussie. I'll bet you can't
guess what—. no I mean who came
next? Well, I'll tell you. Two beautifully dressed girls from the Pan ran
out and danced and sang to us. I said
to Billy that I thought the poor things
must find it pretty cold in the Rowing
