Popular  Athlete  Is  Selected  as
1923 Rhodes Scholar from
British Columbia
Mr. Garrett Itivingston of Arts '24
has been appointed by the Selection
Committee as next year's Rhodes
Scholar for British Columbia, from
among thirteen applicants. This appointment is looked on with approval
by the studuents of the University,
who know Garrett as a splendid athlete and an outstanding student.
He received his early training from
Mr. James Lockington, to whom credit
is due for laying the foundations of
his notable career as a scholar and an
athlete. Mr. Livingston attended the
Lord Roberts Public School and led
his entrance class into King George
High School.
While at King George he was captain of the rugby team and played on
the senior championship hockey team.
He was also intermediate and senior
High School champion in his second
and third years, respectively. However his achievements in athletics did
not interfere with academic work, for
he led his class all through his matric-

Soccerites Win"'
From South Hill
The Blue and Gold eleven notched
two more points on Saturday, when
they defeated South Hill by the odd
goal. The game was decidedly poor,
so poor that many of the spectators
departed homewards long before the
final whistle. This may be accounted
for by the fact that the Hill was playing a one-back game, due to the expulsion of Jock Campbell from the
Play started with South Hill pressing hard, their two stars, Furness and
Bradshaw, showing up brilliantly.
Baker, Crute and Mosher were working overtime and succeeded in keeping the ball out. The forwards could
not get going, and for a time it looked like a South Hill victory. But this
is where Emery comes into the picture. A long pass shot out ,to him,
the ball was trapped neatly, and dribbled almost to the line. He crossed a
perfect pass, and Jock gave Hogarth
no chance with the winning shot.
This seemed to waken the forwards
up, and from now on the Hill were
never in the picture. It was at this
juncture that Campbell deliberately
fouled Huestis, and he received a
warning. Ten minutes later he made
a swing at Bryndolson and missed,
but Allan did not miss seeing the
happening. As a result the Hill was
deprived of one of its best backs. The
game was now of the listless variety,
the Hill playing on the defensive.
Many opportunities went to waste, a
common offence being to kick the ball
far ahead of the players. Shields was
the worst offender in this respect.

Christmas  Plays Again Performed Before Capacity Audiences—
Varied Programme and Artistic Setting Add To
Success—Mr. Cross' Fine Acting.
On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
of last week the ever-popular Christmas Plays were presented by the University Players' Club in the Auditorium. The success of the performance
this year reflects credit upon those
people who, in spite of the fact that
they were handicapped by inadequate
stage equipment, were able to present
such a varied programme with such
artistic settings. In spite of the fact
that one of the plays failed to "get
over," the bill as a whole was perhaps
superior to both that of last year and
that of the year before.
"The   Little  Stone   House."
"The Little Stone House" was the
one presentation on the programme
which did not come up to the standard of excellence maintained in the
other three. The play dragged for
several reasons. In the first place the
dialogue was stilted and unnatural;
in the second place, a great deal of the
conversation had no bearing whatever
on the approaching crisis; and in the
third place the death of Praskovya
was quite unjustifiable, being a mere
device on the part of the dramatist to
avoid an anti-climax.
Owing to the unlifelike style in
which the dialogue is written, there
was little chance in this play for any
fine acting, which was of necessity inferior to that in the other three productions. Mr. J. W. B. Shore as As-
teryi, Mr. Carman Sing as Spiridon,
and Mr. Lloyd Edgett as the Stranger
did some fine pieces of interpretation.
Miss Mildred Teeple, in her role of
the old lodging-house keeper, played
well, but her performance did not
come up to the somewhat similar role
which she took in last year's play,
"On Vengeance Heights."
Miss G. E. Maclnnes, as Varvara,
the servant girl, is to be commended
on her facial expression during the
critical moments of the play. Mr. W.
G. Thompson, as Forma, the lodger,
was unconvincing, and appeared to be

IColonial Service
British   Government   To   Make
Appointments In Africa from
Canadian Universities
The British Government has recently thrown open to graduates of
Canadian Universities certain appointments in the Colonial Service. These
appointments are to positions, chiefly
in the Colonies and Protectorates of
Tropical Africa, which are normally
filled by nomination rather than as a
result of competitive examination.
Some idea of the magnitude of the
task of administration carried on by
the British Government among the dependent peoples of Central Africa may
be gained by the reflection that Tanganyika Territory (late German E. Af-
rjca) has a roughly estimated area of
380,000 square miles and a population
of 7,500,000, while Nigeria alone is
half as large again as France and has
a population of about 15,000,000. These
are but two of the many colonies and
protectorates for which the government of Great Britain is responsible
in Africa.
These countries have not in the past
loomed very large in the public eye,
but it is likely that there will be a
considerable change in this respect
during the next twenty years.

Petty Thefts In

Council   Takes   Firm   Stand
Infractions of Discipline
In University
The state of affairs prevalent iu the
University is a challenge to student
control of discipline, a challenge
which must be taken up personally
by every student. Seven fire extinguishers have been stolen during a
single week; twelve electric light
bulbs have disappeared in one evening, several instances of gambling on
the premises have been reported.
More disgraceful still, reference books
have been disappearing from the
library shelves, some only to return
after an absence of a week or so,
others not at all. The culprits no
doubt are comparatively few in numbers, but thfcir activities are assuming dangerous proportions.
The marshal's organization is the
logical means to deal with the situation, but it must be assisted by the
students individually. The student
bodies of many of the American universities are struggling to obtain control of discipline: and here, where
student control already prevails, it
must be upheld in every department.
The council has passed a ruling to

Men's Lit. Have
Important Debate
[y- This Evening
A debate will take place tonight between representatives of the Vancouver Law Students Association and the
Men's Literary Society of the U. B. C.
The subject is, "Resolved that the
East Indian should be given the franchise in B. C." The Law Students
will be represented by Mr. Jack Cline'
and Mr. Geo. Clarke, who will uphold
the affirmative, while Mr. Walter
Hodgson and Mr. Jimmie Yonemura
will take the negative for Varsity.
Both Mr. Cline and Mr. Clarke are
graduates of U. B. C, Mr. Cline being
a member of Arts '23, Mr. Clarke of
Arts '22. The former was very well
known on account of his activities
with the Players Club, taking the
leading role in the spring production
for two years. Mr. Clarke twice represented his University in International debates, and is an accomplished
Mr. Hodgson and Mr. Yonemura are
prominent members of this year's
graduating class, and both are public
speakers of considerable experience
and merit. Mr. Hodgson represented
his Alma Mater against both Reed
College and the University of California. Each time he was a member
of a winning team. Mr. Yonemura is
a member of the International team
this year, and has, in the past, ably
represented his year in the interclass debates. The question is one
which is attracting considerable attention at the present time, and since
the debate is open to the general public, a large crowd is expected. The
meeting will come to order at 8.15,
and it is hoped that the Students will
turn out in numbers and back their

living to act his actions, rather than
lo live his part. The part of the Corporal was adequately taken by Mr.
Harold  R. Cantelon.
"The Romancers."
"The Romancers," by Edmond Ros-
laud, a delightfully balanced and ar-
listic production, written in a light
vein, was popular with everyone. A
number of people were, no doubt, a
little puzzled at first by the numerous
"asides" and soliloquies, but a remembrance of the fact that the play was
a translation from the French soon
rendered these excusable. The three
scenes into which the comedy was divided did not detract in any way from
the charm and interest of the production.
The honors of the play go to Mr. H.
B. Warren and Mr. T. M. C. Taylor as
the two fathers. The acting of these
men was so uniformly excellent that
it would be difficult indeed to make
any differentiation between them. Mr.
Kenneth Caple, in the role of Percinet,
did an exceedingly good piece of work.
His part, however, would have been
more convincing if his dress had been
just a little less effeminate. Straforel,
the bombastic bravado, was well interpreted by Mr. Wilfrid Kelly. Miss
Roberta Thurston made a very lovely
Sylvette, but owing to an unfortunate
propensity to laugh with her audience,
her interpretation of the role was unconvincing. The parts of the gardener
and the notary were adequately taken
by Mr. L. J. Smith and Mr. D. B.
Charlton, respectively.
"The Birthday of the Infanta."
From both the point of view of acting and dramatic technique, Stuart
Walker's "Birthday of the Infanta"
was the finest play on the evening's
programme. The pathetic story of the
little cripple is so deftly and so artistically handled that the interest is
sustained and the emotions aroused
without the audience being aware of
the dramatist's skill. The only re-
gretable feature about the performance
was the failure to drop the curtain as
soon as the last word had been
Mr. H. N. Cross' interpretation of
the Fantastic was not only the best
presented masculine role of the evening, but it was one of the finest bits
of amateur acting which the Players'
Radium gowns, wierd luminous glittering patterns of lace fabric, are used in
The Sen Dodger, headline act at the
Orpheum this week. This elaborate act
with a big cast, is noted for its extreme
fashions and expensive costuming; recently imported from Paris. One four-
minute spectacle alone cost the producer
.$5,000. The second big feature is a
"Vaudrama" in four scenes billed as
The Compliments of the Season. In it
Garry Owen, well known in motion pictures and vaudeville heads a capable
company of players. Other acts, each a
feature, are those of McLaughlin and
Evans, "On A Little Side Street;" Sully
and Houghton in "Calf Love"; Elsa
Uuegger, one of the finest cellists on the
continent; Dezso Retter, the man who
wrestles with himself and Carlton Emmy
with his "Mad Wags." The entire bill
is ambitious and delightfully entertaining.

i'lub Has ever presented to a University audience. At the opening performance Mr. Cross was given a tremendous ovation, and on the second
and third nights he was applauded
while the curtain rose and fell four
times. Living the part of the sensitive little Fantastic, he made his audience forget the cramped and narrow
stage, made it forget that he was an
every-day student associate, and made
them feel only the tragedy of the little
cripple who found that Echo had
mocked his form as she had formerly
mocked his voice. The tenseness
in the presence-chamber, the dance before the Infanta, and the tragic scene
before the mirror, performed as they
were, could only have been done by
one who forgot his audience and threw
his whole soul into the part he was
playing. The role of the Fantastic
was a particularly delicate one to handle, and if it had been taken by a
person with less ability than Mr.
Cross the play might have met with
disaster at the hands of a too-critical
University audience.
To Miss Joan Meredith goes the
honour of the best interpreted female
role in the evening's performance. Her
representation of spoiled pride brought
into strong relief the humility of the
"funny little Fantastic," and her portrayal of the quick transitions from
royal dignity to "little girlishness"
was remarkably well done.
The dignity of the Duchess of Al-
buqerque was well sustained by Miss
Rosie Marin. The parts of the Chamberlain and the Count of Tierra Nueva
were adequately taken by Mr. W. W.
Mathews and Mr. Lyle A. Atkinson,
respectively. No one could have wished for a more charming Page than
Miss Jean Faulkner.
"The  Ghost Story."
The merit of Booth Tarkington's
comedy, "The Ghost Story," can best.
be judged by the continuous bursts
of laughter which arose from the audience throughout its presentation. The
production has all the marks of a well
constructed play, and was well worthy
of the hearty reception given it. A
few there were who, feeling that the
suspense was a little too prolonged,
would liked to have reached out and
forced Anna to say: "yes, George—I'll
marry you."   It is a question whether
the entrance of "the crowd" a little
earlier in the scene might or might
not have improved the play.
The part of the boyish, badly-used
George far outweighs the other parts
in the play, and it was interpreted in
a manner which could hardly have
been improved upon. The role of
Anna was extremely well taken by
Miss Elsie Rilance, who did a fine bit
of expressive acting. "The Crowd,"
comprising Miss Jean Thomson, Miss
Marion Cameron. Miss Edith Tisdall,
Mr. L. A. Murphy. Mr. Peter Price,
and Mr. Ralph O. Norman, succeeded
in creating an admirable "Tarkington
atmosphere" about the two main figures.

Down Rowing  Club in Stiff
Encounter at Strathcona
Varsity Intermediates won a stubbornly contested game on Saturday
afternoon when they defeated Rowing
Club Seconds by the score of 8 to 0.
The big feature of the game was Varsity's tackling. The Rowing Club
threes started several dangerous runs
but the Varsity men brought them
down every time.
Rowing Club kicked off but play
remained around centre until Hatch
broke away with the ball about half
way through the period. The try was
not converted. Gross made a spectacular save in this half when he
brought down Stuart who had broken
through the Varsity line.
Mathews made a nice save early
in the second period when he brought
down a Rowing Club man on the line.
The scrum was showing up well in
this half and were pushing the Rowers
all over the lot. The three-quarter
line was also making some splendid
runs. For the greater part of the
period pls.y was on their 25 and just
before the final whistle Edgett broke
away and scored. Gross converted,
bringing the score up to 8-0.

Immediately after the kick-off Varsity pressed, and after a nice three-
quarter run Palmer went over again.
Val scored from a very difficult angle.
Warren now made a nice run down
the side-line and as he was being
forced out, passed in to Buchanan
who scored.   Val failed to convert.
Nanaimo pressed, but Gee made a
splendid kick to touch, the ball going
out within 10 yards of the line. In
trying to get the pig-skin out, Nanaimo
passed it back over the line and Purdy
fell on it. Gee succeeded in converting.
Varsity pressed and after another
three-quarter run Purdy went over.
Gee registered again, bring the score
up to 28-0 at half-time.
At the beginning of the second half
Buchanan broke through near the flag.
Val failed in the convert.
Gee now made a tricky run of over
25 yards and passed to Purdy who
went over. Gee added the extra two
points to the score.
Varsity were pressing again when
Nanaimo heeled the ball out of the
scrum on the line and McLean fell on
it.   Gee converted once more.
Nanaimo bucked up and by long
kicking were holding Varsity when
Potts grabbed the leather on Varsity's
twenty-five and broke through for
Nanaimo's only points. Hodkinson
did not manage the convert.
Just before the final whistle, Varsity broke through again, Purdy going
over with a pass from Carlisle, thus
bringing the score up to 44-3.

Holding B. C. Telephone
to Draw
U. B. C. proved that they have at
last got going with a vengeance when
they tallied their fifth point out of a
possible six in their last three games,
by fighting a well-earned draw with
the B. C. Telephone team, which holds
an enviable position in the league
table.    The score was one-all.
Old Jupe Pluvius retired in favour
of his more genial rival in lots of time
to ensure the games being played in
fair conditions. U. B. C. kicked off,
and at once settled down to a good
combination in spite of the high wind,
which somewhat spoiled the long passes. Underwood and Evans on the
wings were going on all six, and were
often dangerous. Matters were fairly even during the first half, save for
a few spoilt chances by our forwards.
Pine crosses by Underwood and
Evans, which should have had a better fate, were missed. Davidson had
very little to do during this period.
Even play continued after the resumption, with the blue and gold
generally in the spot light. The Telephone company's defense was their
strength, however, and it was some
time before Underwood placed a corner kick perfectly, and Martin did the
dirty work quite satisfactorily. U. B.
C. continued pressure, and Evans shot
wild on a glorious opening. The Telephone men held control of the final
exchange, and pressed strongly during the last ten minutes, succeeding
in heading a cross into the net for the
tying counter. Disney was prominent
at fullback.

The most mean-souled of us cannot
deny that the Christmas Plays were
a real credit to the Players' Club. If
there was any circumstance that
marred their presentation it was no
short-coming of the actors, but the
discourtesy of  the audience.
To our shame it must be admitted
that there are students among our
number who do not know how to conduct themselves at a play. Not only
is the language of the drama incomprehensible to them, but the tenets
of good manners are, too, something
beyond their ken. During what was
probably the most difficult bit of acting of the evening, when a
single character had to sustain an
already exacting role without the support of either lines or fellow actors on
the stage, the unmannered and unsympathetic demonstration of one or
two of the audience was both an insult
to the performer and an outrage upon
the finer feeling of the audience.
It is to be hoped that those who
were guilty of this incivility will be
made conscious of it by their fellow
students, and that outraged public
opinion will prove a severe discipline.
We suffer as an institution as a result of their ill-breeding, and our only
hope is that there were not many outsiders present on the occasion.
The organization of a University
Brass Band has been undertaken by a
committee of Musical Society members. A notice is published in this issue regarding the undertaking, and
students are asked to co-operate with
this committee as far as possible. The
success of this project must in a large
measure depend upon the numbers of
those taking part. Each student playing a brass instrument of any kind
should hand in his name immediately,
As the examinations draw near, we
hear on all sides the same old complaint. Reference books are again disappearing from the shelves, seemingly
never to be returned. In most courses,
the reading of certain references is a
necessity, and these books are placed
on the shelves for the use and convenience of all the students taking
that subject. Some, however, do not
seem to understand this, and taking
reference books from the shelves they
keep them for days at a stretch. Now,
especially, this means very serious inconvenience to the other members of
their classes. Such disregard for the
rights of others is a most annoying
form of selfishness, and can not be too
strongly condemned.
It was gratifying to see the large
number of candidates who .turned out
last Wednesday for the international
Debates try-outs. Nearly all the
twenty-eight speeches were of an unusually high standard, both in material
and delivery. The University has reason to be proud of its debating record, and we are gratified to find that
the students are sufficiently interested
in this activity to wish to maintain
the high standard of previous years.
Debating is particularly important
at this University because it is the
onlv activity in which international
contests are held. The success or
failure of debating teams, especially
when the subjects debated are economic or historic, often reflects scholarship; and a victory like that over California last year, gives the University
a certain prestige, not only in debating, but in academic circles. It is
mainly owing to the work of debating
teams that the University is a member of the Pacific Coast Inter-Collegiate Association.
We take this opportunity of congratulating the men chosen, and hope
that they will be successful in the
spring in duplicating the performances of the past.
PlanK for the Spring Concert of the
Musical Club are not yet fully matured. It has been decided, however, to
give more choruses and orchestral
selections,  and   fewer  solos.
If this plan is carried out, it will
give greater prominence to the
Orchestra and Glee Club, and the concert will be more than a, "Coming
Artists Night."

If you think yours is a disinterested love of knowledge for its own sake,
that you are inspired by the "urge"
to higher things, don't read the article "Young Canada" which appeared
in the September issue of the Canadian Forum, over the name of Douglas Bush. In a most, scathing condemnation of the materialistic attitude
of the average student in our universities he says:—
"It requires no doting pessimism to
see that the last few years especially
have brought forth in vastly increased
numbers, a kind of Canadian student
which is indistinguishable from the
worst and commonest American type.
Money is no longer scarce. It is "the
thing" to go to college. A college
course fills in the time pleasantly between school and business or marriage; it enables one to form friendships—those wonderful friendships
which a university exists to provide.
It gives a degree which is an indispensable commercial asset; it furnishes a tool to extract more money
from the world for the essential luxuries of life. These reasons for going
to college are at least concrete; they
cannot be accused of losing themselves
in a midst of idealism. One hesitates
to estimate the percentage of the annual crop of freshmen whose ideals
they represent.
"More and more through the sheet-
aggregate of students with commercialized ambitions, the Canadian university is becoming a professional
training school, affiliated with a dancing  academy."
We do not believe that this violent
and biased outburst can be applied
to Western Canada. We have not
found that "money is no longer scarce"
nor that "a degree furnishes a tool to
extract more money"—at least not in
Vancouver. Ask the U. B. C. men
who were "mucking" in the mines during the summer, if their pay checks
were any higher because of a B.A., or
if they went to U. B. C, in the first
place, in the hope that the end of the
month might mean a more substantial addition to their bank account.

The Editor of  the  Ubyssev.
Dear  Kir —
I wish to call your attention to a most
dis^ruA-eiul incident which occurred during one of the Christinas plays last
Thursday evening. 1 refer to the boisterous mirth for which some exceedingly rude and ignorant persons seemed to
tind cause, in one of the most skilfully
sustained characters of the evening.
One would scarcely expect such childish
behavior from people who have reached
['Diversity a^e.
1 think that it is a great pity that one
of those in charge of the plays did not
discover who these persons were, and
request them to leave the Auditorium at
once. It would, perhaps, have taught
them a much-needed lesson  in manner.
This is not the last issue of The
Ubyssey this term. Somewhat of an
innovation is being tried out this year
by the business staff. Though the
paper will not be published for the
next two weeks, there will be a special Christmas number published on
December 19. This is partly due to
the advertisers, and partly due to the
Registrar, who has kindly (if unintentionally) given all exams on the
first three days.
All unable to get their Ubyssey here
may have same mailed to them by
leaving their name, address, and a
two-cent postage stamp in the box
which will be provided for that purpose.

cope with the present situation and
the faculty and class marshals, in
carrying out their difficult and not
too pleasant task should have the cooperation  of every student.
The following is the Council's resolution. "That full orders be given
to faculty and class-marshals to apprehend and bring before the Students'
Council at once any student guilty of
the following or other offences against
(1) Petty thieving of fixtures, such
as fire extinguishers, etc.;
(2) Gambling in any form whatever;
(3) Removal of books from the
reference shelves not in compliance
with library regulations;
And that students be especially notified that those guilty of such offences
are liable to expulsion from the University."
In the iriter-class soccer finals
Science '24 defeated Arts '25 by a
score of 2 to 1 during the second
period overtime. Science '24 had the
best of the play but many repeated attempts to score were stopped by Carpenter, the Arts '25 goalie. Palmer
scored for Arts '25 and Stacey and
ifnderhil]  for Science '24.
Science '25 won from Agriculture by
default for third place.
Science '24 were the victors in the
inter-class basket-ball final when they
defeated Arts '27 by a score of 31-17.
The game was fairly even until near
the end of the second half when Bickell and Carlisle put Science '24 in the
lead. Henderson played a good game
for Arts '27.
(Continued from Page 1)
Huestis played well, his combination
work and crosses being of the best.
In their two wingers, Huestis and Emery, Varsity has two potential stars;
they were the only bright lights in a
dull game.
The second half was a repetition
of the first, Varsity having the game
entirely in hand. Three offside goals
were scored, Referee Allan disallowing them all. Tommy Wilkinson made
many dangerous rushes, but he tried
combination tactics and they did not
succeed. Buckley and Phillips starred, breaking up every rush. The
game ended with Varsity still pressing.
The line-up was as follows: Mosher,
Crute, Baker, Shields, Phillips, Buckley, Emery, Wilkinson, Lundie, Bryn-
dolson  and  Huestis.
(Continued from Page 1)
The largest number of vacancies in
these areas occurs in the Administrative Services and it is this class of appointment which offers the most likely
field for our own graduates. Administrative officers are agents of the government in their own districts and
their duties have to do with all departments of administration, e.g., political relations with the natives, administration of justice, care of prisons, road construction, and public
Vacancies also occur from time to
time in technical and specialist work,
e.g., in the medical services, mining
and civil engineering, agriculture, and
specialist jobs in chemistry, geology,
All these appointments are in the
British Colonial service with a regular
schedule of salaries and pensions.
Applications will be received and
considered by a Committee of Faculty. In the case of those whose applications are approved, the papers
will be forwarded to a central Canadian committee in Montreal; applications approved by this committee will
go direct to the Colonial Office, where
the  appointment  is  finally made.
Detailed information regarding the
work, conditions of the service, etc.,
may be obtained from H. T. Logan,

ulation year, including the final examinations into the University.
At 'Varsity Garrett has proved himself to he an "all-round man." He has
taken an active part in sports, paying
special attention to track events. This
fall he was one of the five athletes to
represent the U. B. C. at the Western
Collegiate track meet in Saskatoon.
He is a prominent member of the
Players' Club, being vice-president this
year. Two years ago he played a
leading role in the spring production
of "Sweet Lavender." He was very
active in the Publicity Campaign last
year, one of his most effective addresses being given before the Woman's Club here. In both the Letters
Club and the Historical Society Livingston has been an active member.
In the spring examinations last year
he came through with first class honors in English Literature and History,
which subjects will serve as an adequate foundation for the studies in law
he intends pursuing at Oxford.
The Rhodes Scholarship is awarded annually by a Selection Committee to the British Columbia student
who is thought to measure up most
nearly to the standards set by Mr.
Cecil Rhodes in laying down the conditions of the award. He desired that
all-round men be chosen, and suggested three prime qualifications of candidates which should form the basis of
the choice. These were: Good academic standing; evidence of personal
popularity, good moral character, and
capacity for leadership; and a fondness for games or other manly sports.
The Scholarship is tenable for three
years at the Oxford University, and
is of the value of 300 pounds sterling
per annum.
Mr. Livingston will take up residence at Oxford in the fall of 1924,
and will be the twenty-first Rhodes
Scholar from British Columbia to go
to that university. He will take up
a course in Jurisprudence, leading to
the B.C.L. degree.
There will be a meeting of the
Nursing Girls on Thursday, November 29th, at 8 p.m. at the home of
the Victorian Order of Nurses, 1250
Broadway West. Mrs. Calhoun, head
of the V.O.N., will give an address on
"Public Health Work," a subject
which should hold much interest for
those going in for the nursing profession. It is hoped that as many as
possible will attend.
Now that this movement has been
launched in Vancouver, doubtless
many students will wish to identify
themselves with it. Associate members pay $1.00 a year. The treasurer
is Mr. C. G. Pennock, 525 Seymour St.

In connection with Mr. Jack Grant's
suggestion of having a university pep
band, the Musical Society is only too
glad to do its share in establishing
such a unit in the University. However, co-operation is essential, and as
a pep band consists largely of brass
instruments, it is absolutely necessary
that anyone in the college able and
willing to play such an instrument,
hand in his name to anyone of the
following: J. Kania, Sc. '26, C. Nikiel,
Sc. '26, H. Giegerich, Sc. '24.
In this manner the committee shall
be able to ascertain just what are the
possibilities of this scheme.
As fine an exhibition of emotional
acting as the most exacting theatregoer could ask for earned curtain-

Carrying a part that, while it opened up great possibilities for the actress, also presented the danger of
disaster from the slightest bit of overacting, Miss Felton rose to a high
pitch of histrionic power without at
any time overstepping the bonds of
art and she repeatedly carried the
audience practically off its feet.

A considerable number of students
availed themselves of the opportunity
presented last week of hearing ..Sir
James^Outram, the noted alpinist and
e~xplorer, speak on "First Ascents in
the Rockies." The speaker graphically described the thrills and perils of
climbing, illustrating his lecture by
displaying a large collection of appropriate  slides.
Sir James was the first man to climb
the Matterhorn of the Rockies, Mt.
Assiniboine, in 1901, and the historic
ascent of this giant peak was vividly
recounted by him. Three unsuccessful attempts had been made previously, he stated, so that the mountain
was at that time popularly believed
to be unconquerable. They had proved this to be a fallacy, however, by
reaching the top on the second attempt, the first try having failed because of stormy weather and lack of
time. They had descended via the
perilous north face and then covered
the forty miles back to Banff in a
Other climbs made during the summers of 1900-01 were described, the
lecturer taking his audience on a
magic carpet into the extensive Columbia ice-field where the hitherto un-
climbed Mountains Pyramid and Forbes and other peaks were ascended;
thence into the Ottertail Range where
an all but successful attempt of the
difficult Mount Goodsir was made. On
this peak the party, having encountered a snow-cornice which overhung
on both sides of a ridge, turned back
for fear of accident.
These climbs were all made in what
was at that time virgin country, Sir
James declared, so that ingress and
egress were much more difficult than
in the present age of motor highways
and modern chalets. Sir James in
mentioning some of the discomforts
with which they had to contend,
characteristically described them as
"all in the day's work."

In connection with the performance
of "Candida," which takes place on
Saturday, gratifying press reports
have been received from the various
cities in which "Candida" has been
played. The Salt Lake "Desert News,"
October 13th, gives a summary of the
play in a nutshell:
" 'Candida' is perhaps too well
known to require more than the briefest outline here. The Reverend James
Morell, an English clergyman, known
to be of the progressive type, discovers with disconcerting abruptness that
Eugene Marchbanks, a young poet, is
deeply in love with his (Morell's)
wife, Candida. The action of the play
revolves around Morell's endeavour
to test whether he has lost Candida's
love. It can scarcely be called an
action play. On the contrary, it serves
primarily as a vehicle for the revealing of character types under the most
unusual circumstances, and it gives
ample opportunity for Bernard Shaw
to bring into play his keen comments
on modern life, his delicate satire and
cynicism, and in general his philosophical observations. 'Candida' is not
an easy play to present convincingly.
The success with which the Moroni
Olsen Players gave the rendition last
night is a distinct tribute to the interpretative and histrionic abilities of
the company, individually, and as a
