Actors Forced To
Undergo Torture
Last Monday
i Preliminary Selections Made
Having barely recovered rrom tho
•xerutlatlng torturet of the last try-
out, the new members or the Player's Club were initiated last Mon-
Jay Into the horrors of competition
»r the Xmas productions. These
irere undergone In the Auditorium,
•frith Prof. F. O. C. Wood. Prof. Sow-
ard, Dr. A. F. B. Clark and Mr. Larson as Judges,
At three o'clock the Green Room
was packed with palpitating actors
awaiting their turns. It was a strange
scene. Soma, with handn pressed
tightly against their ears, paced madly up and down the room, murmuring
fragments of an almost forgotten
part, while others sat rigidly by the
open window, staring out upon tho
land of a liberty which was not for
them. A small bottle of chloroform
on one of the shelves disappeared
early In the afternoon. At regular
intervals the immobile countenance
of Les. Brown appeared at the stage
door, and as he pronounced the names
of the next victims, agonized shrieks
were heard from the stage,—"I shall
go mad—I know I Bhall go mad I"
It Is hoped that a sufficient number
will have recovered in time tor the
Player's Reception on Thursday
night. The results of the try-outs,
published the following morning, are
as follows:
"The Second Shepherd's Play":—Mis-
sea  Walter and  Jackson;   Messrs.
Wright;  Liersch;  Bailey; Telford;
Billot;  Walnmau;   D. Murphy aud
Marsh.
"The   Dumb   Wife":— MIsbos   Allhan
and Clarke;   Hensworth and Rankin; Marin and Crompton;  Messrs.
Jacob; Knox; Cough; P. Murphy.
"The   Luck   Piece":—Misses   Barton
and Kldd; Messrs. Brown; Vincent
and Howlett.
"The Fatal Rubber":—Misses Christian;     Meredith;     Musgrave    and
Ralph; Messrs. Matthews and Nash.
Rehearsals    will    be    carried    on
throughout  the  coming week  to determine   the   principals   and   under-
studies for each part.
Women's Common-
Room Furnished
At hi!*' the women':' comuon rooms
are actually I'iii-iiImIk■«!' Hitherto the
furniture has consist.:l of a few
small tables, lo-pi lliii-n-d with a
confused juniblv of huts, coats,
lunches and coeds, much to the detriment of the hats. Chairs hav been
conspicuous by their absence; and
the common room (loots are far
more uncomfortable, and far dirtier,
than   the   Auditorium   floor.
But them days Is gone—let us hope,
forever. The floors have been swept,
and are now adorned by carpets
which would be very pretty if they
too were "wiped or rubbed over with
a bruph or broom." A few more
tables have made their appearance,
which allows slightly more room for
wraps, and even permits of a little
study. The floor Is no longer the
only place to sit, for chairs have
been provided, and three sumptuous
Chesterfields. Even freshettes are
allowed to sit on these, and may be
teen luxuriously doing so at any time.
Tho windows are elegantly draped
In white scrim curtains, with heavier
hangings of plush. The curtains and
carpets In the upper common room
are blue, In the lower, rose, Last,
but not least, two fern-stands full or
healthy-looking ferns add a decorative touch to the rooms.
The tlncerest thanks of the women
students aro due to President Kllnck
and Dean Bollert, who had great difficulty In persuading the government
of the absolute necessity of these furnishings, Goodness only knows how
many generations of students this
furniture will have to serve, so the
best care must be taken of It now
It Is new.
All that Is needed now Is the lockers, which will soon be ready. Everyone Is watching and waiting for
the desperate rush to seise a locker
before  they  are  all   taken.

unanimous In their oplnon that the
U. B. C. fifteen Is the only one strong
enough to accomplsh this task, and
it tomorrow's game is lost, it Is practically certain that tho coveted trophy
will become tho property of the X-
King Oeorge club for tho ensuing
year. With only six games on tho
schedule for each team, no more than
one loss can be afforded. The University team, having reached this limit, will be fighting with Its back to tho
wall, und an earnest plea for rooters
to choer the boys on has been Issued
by Coach Jim Scott. Mr. Scott Is confident that his pets will make n good
showing, but knowing from long experience tho value of a student
rooting section, he feels that one may
give just the added zest that will win
the game.
As most students are aware,
the U. B. C. team consists of prospective McKechnie Cup forwards, and
a second string back line. This year,
however, there are so many excellent
backs at the University that several
men on the second Btrlng buck line,
such as Willis, Abernethy, und Taylor, are strong contenders for places
on the first team. Such being the
case, there Is no very weak spot In
the line-up. The game will bo particularly Interesting tor most students because they will see (he men
who are to meet Edmonton on November 7th, in action, and he able to
form some Idea of the University's
chances. This game, the first that
the senior team plays, is considered
a very Important event, and workouts
nre already being held by the prospective University  representatives,
Enthusiastic students who are willing to turn out Saturday, will also see
the Varsity Mlllor Cup team In action. This team plays the Rowing
Club, present holders of tho cup, In
the first game, billed for 2:15. After

The following extracts are from a
letter, dated 11th September, 1926,
and addressed to Dr. Sage of the Department of History, written by Dr.
Mack Eastman, Director ot Research,
International Labor Office, League of
Nations, Geneva, Switzerland. All
members of the second, third and
fourth years will remember "Mack."
For tho benefit of the Freshmen, who,
perhaps are not so lucky, be it said
that Dr. Eastman was the head of the
University History Department for
many years. Last year IiIb brilliant
work for the League of Nations was
recognized by the offer of an Important executive position at Qeneva. Dr.
Eastman accepted, and is at present
working hard In his new office.
"In summer sunshine Qeneva Is a
rare and beautiful city; the excursions
In Us environs are numberless and
glorious; the summer courses offered
by the University of Geneva, by Zlm-
merit's International University Federation, by the Oeneva Institute and
by other International organ'nations
are incomparably rich aud varied

Indeed, contemporary civilization,

PRESS AND THE SURVEY
A small, weekly contemporary, which
usually devotes Its time to the sensational investigation of hypothetical
murder mysteries or the enthusiastic
promotion of Its mining enterprises,
has turned its attention and its valuable space to the Educational Survey,
just Issued. If the headlines and
general style ot the article are at all
Indicative of what is to come in this
matter, any Intelligent reader of that
Journal la in for an hilarious winter.
The article, of course, is deliberately designed to give a certain Impression of conditions in B. C, and
to do so, it has twisted the report out
of all semblance and recognition. Eut
there is nothing in the article that
the authors of the Survey could base
a libel suit on, if they wished, although the enterprising journalist
would doubtless be willing to take an
affidavit as to his amateur standing
in the matter of libel suits. The mis
leading and pernicious part of the article lies not in what is said, but in
what is left unsaid.   To illustrate:—
The article mentions that in certain
schools the report said the teacher
was poor, but omits to say that in
others it was very good. It says that
the report asks for more salary for
teachers (alluding possibly to the
statement that certain city teachers
were worth more money than they
were getting) but neglects to add, as
It should have, In all fairness, that
the report also said several were
worth   less  than  they were getting.
It takes certain Isolated Instances
of misconduct on the part of teachers,
and from them draws the conclusion
that the whole teaching body is corrupt. The editor, who appears to
have had knowledge of every vice
that there Is in the city (how wo envy
him), tells of booze parties "at which
all restraint was cast aside,'' where
high school students are supposed to
have been present. What he does
not say, however, is that ninety per
cent, of the high school students In
this Province are respectable young
people. What he does not publish
Is the fact that the high school students of this Province are a cleaner,
more moral, more Intelligent, and
broader-minded group than any other
class of people of similar ages In
British Columbia. Why omit this
vital fact?
We do not deny that thorn are
teachers who throw chalk around the
rooms, we do not deny that there are
teachers In B. C, In the early stages
of senile decay, we do not deny that
ther*' are teachers who "pet and
squeeze." But what we do deny Is
that these teachers form any considerable proportion of the teaching
body In this Province. We do not
deny that report calls for tho appointment of highly salaried people In official positions, hut we do say thnt the
report also shows how the basis of
taxation can be made Infinitely fairer,
and that these officials would mean a
saving to the  Province In Increased
efficiency,  of many  times  tholr salaries.
Personally, with regard to the report Itself, wo have not yet had tlmo
enough to study It minutely, but from
a hasty reading of It we can give as
our honest opinion the statement
that the report Is ono of the ablest,
most readable, and most reasonable
documents we have known. With Its
general conclusions we are In complete unison. Wo agree with the report that tho need of this Province is
for more and better education. Wo
believe that the hope of democracy
Is an educated, Intelligent people (but
of course we have no circulation to
look after) .and that no possible good
can come out of a campaign of muckraking and misrepresentation by
"beefsteak educationists."
DISCIPLINE
The Innocent have ever suffered
with the guilty—happy citation! And
although it Is regrettable that the
student body can be analyzed Into
two such groups It is none the less
true. Definition of either group is
unnecessary; but on explanation of
the second may be pertinent to this
edltoral's purpose, Students who
scatter papers, write on walls, break
seats, gamble, steal,—all such offenders against university customs and
public ethics—are included in this
group "guilty."
The activities of offenders, It may
ho postulated, have never In the past
been adequately suppressed. Petty
! thieveries and maltreatment of build-
| lugs, in particular, were only too frequent at the old university. The marshal system, !t was proved, neither detected nor punished as It should have
done; and this was due partly to the
Incapabllty of the department, partly
to the Indifference of tho students.
On more than one occasion short
crime waves swept over the university. Everyone hoped, although for
no very cogent reason, that these
uglinesses would In some nebulous
way be eliminated from undergraduate life at the new university. Hut
as the term proceeds, Increasing signs
of this vandalism of a few become apparent.
As these things are so, and since
there Is not a marshal system at University this year, but one solution
senilis evident, This may be put In
the form of a slogan: Every Student
a Policeman. In this way the stud
ent reports a known offence to stud
ent authorities; the case comes up
before the students' court, Is tried
quietly, sentenco passed, und In the
end the Innocent do not suffer with
the guilty Some, however, think
that It Is out of keeping with their
dignity and poor sport to deliver a
criminal to justice, This Is a raise
standard; for not only does the person directly connive In un offence by
overlooking It, but also permits the
culprit to go merrily on to a career
of vice which, with timely Intervention might be sharply checked.

ORIENTAL DISCRIMINATION
Vancouver, B. C,
Oct. 21, 1925.
The Editor Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
A few weeks ago while I was talking to a friend concerning the University District, I was told tlut there
was tt declaration which tho purchasers had to sign before they could buy
any property In tho district. Upon Investigation I found (hat In this declaration I here is a clause which runs
o the effect that no purchaser of
property In the Kit Id district can sell,
rent or lease his property to Orientals.
This declaration makes uo allowance
lor even Oriental students, I wish to
ring this matter before the student
body because I believe a law like this
Is going to have a great effect upon
the  future of this university.    Such
nig I ho case every member of tin-
Student body should think over this
obnoxious clause- In the declaration
mil do his or her bit to remedy It.
Would anyone of you ever dream of
going to study in a country where
there is such u law as this In operation? I don't believe you would, and
yet you expect the Orientals to come
here io study while you pass such
foolish laws, Can you Imagine a student travelling ten or twelve thousand
miles to come to a college which forbids him to live within its residential district because of his nationality? No, you cannot. Suppose that, in
spite of such laws, Oriental students
oo come here, what then? These students ure going to take back to the
Orient certain Impressions of the Canadian people. Whether these Impressions are good or tad Is completely up
to you. If these students return to the
Orient thoroughly satisfied with the
Canadian people, the British Columbians will have no reason to regret
the good treatment given to this
'.nnillul of sojourners. Think It over
A law like the above Is n blot on the
character of the Oriental students.
Youra,

BIOLOGICAL DISCUSSION CLUB
The first meeting of the Club was
held on Monday, October 19th, at the
homo of Dr. C. McLean Fraser, West
Point Grey. An Interesting address
was given by Dr. Fraser on "Modifications due to human agencies in
the marine life of the Pacific."
The next meeting will be held on
November 2nd, the address to be
given by Mr. G, J. Spencer. A list
of members will be posted on Monday.
THE CLA8SICS CLUB
Last year a few of the upper year
students made what proved to be a
successful attempt to revive the Classics Club. Their success was due
very largely to the enterprise of
Homer Thompson, the president, and
to the kindness ol Ihe professors in
lending their homes and also Riving
talks on different phases, of Ibis subject. The perennial interest in classics, age old, and y-ar b\ year ever
n.-w, has prompled classics students
lo   organize   again   this   term.
The executive for the ensuing year
is comprised of L. Catleral, Arts 'lit;,
president; and D. Dlmock, Arts '2fi,
vice-president; and ,D Warden, Arts
'27, secretary. The first meeting Is
to he held this Saturday, the 21th, in
the home of ihe honorary president,
Dr. Todd, 3(16 Nineteenth Avenue W.,
at 8 o'cock. All third and fourth
year students taking one or more
courses of Latin or Greek are very
cordially Invited  to be  present.

the papers.
THE MIRACLE OF KHAL
No one will believe this story, of
course, It Is Impossible. I frankly
admit It at the start. M. Beauvais and
myself, to my knowledge, are the
only human beings outside the monks
of Khal monastry, Thibet, who have
witnessed the sight. They called It
the miracle of Khal—wo darod not
venture an opinion.
It happened thus. Caught, while
hunting, In ono ot tho frequent storms
thnt lush mountainous Thibet, we
sought shelter In the only habitation
In tho valley—Khal monastry. The
monks received us kindly, gave us a
change of raiment while our clothes
were drying, und fed us sumptuously.
After supper, M, Beauvais Informed
the Abbot of his conversion to Buddhism five yours before, and the old
man redoubled his efforts, if that were
possible, to make us comfortable. He
went so fur as to offer us i. sight,
which, he declared, no white man had
ever seen before. Would we care
to see a miracle? We, of course, assented, and waiving the fact that I
was a Christian, he led us through
what seemed miles of corridors, At
lust we emerged Into the open air.
We found ourselves in a sort of amphitheatre, between the monastry and
the towering mountains around. The
center of this level space was occupied by a beautifully built little temple, rising to an imposing height. Into this the Abbot led us. The Interior was beautifully carved, and in-
crusted with precious stones. Opposite the entrance, against the far wall,
was a Buddha, fully twenty-five feet
high. Before this Idol knelt a figure,
nnd on a gesture from our guide wo
approached it. It was that of a tall
man, dressed In tho sweeping yellow
robes of a Buddhist of high degree.
On his head was the tall, curiously
pointed helmet of an Abbot. His aims
wore outstretched in an attitude of
prayer, and the long, loose sleeves
had fallen back, showing the pale yellow skin of the wasted limbs.
But It was the face that caught and
held our attention. Long, almost to
deformity, yet beautiful, for on it
was stamped tho pea™ of GOD. The
high, wrinkled brow, bespoke Intelligence—the doeply lined face of past
suffering—the square, yet delicate
chin of courage and resolution. The
form beneath the ample robe was
thin to emaciation from long years of
fasting, yet erect as of a man of
twenty. The eyes closed, the lips
slightly parted, showing the even
white teeth beneath, the whole posture wns one of intense devotion and
prayer. I scarcely breathed, afraid of
disturbing him. Then the old Abbot
staid a few words In his pure French
to Beauvais, whose face suddenly
went white as a sheet. Turning to
me, my friend seized my shoulder In
a vice-like grip. "McMasters," he
Raid. In a curiously husky voice, "That
man Is To-Lln, the founder of Khal
monastry. For forty-five years he
camo here every day to prav One
day the monks found him—like that"
I started Could II be that life had
left that expressive figure before us?
It  was  impossible.
"But-- tire they not afraid of decomposition?" | asked my companion,
"the body may stay like that a month
or so In this climate—not longer "
Ileniivais laughed—a short, hard
mirthless laugh. "Man," he said, slowly, wiping the sweat from his forehead, "the monastry of Khal was
founded over two hundred and fifty
years ago."

Note of Thanks
The Ceremonies Committee wishes
to thank the graduates and undergraduates who acted as ushers at the
Congregation and General Assembly
respectively. Their tactful handling
"l" the little Incidents that Inevitably
arise In such occasions was greatly
appreciated, not only by the com-
trltloe, but also by members of the
nuilence. The example of willing cooperation set by them augurs well for
our future at Point Grey. While comment on the behaviour of the student
ody lies outside the Held of Ihe committee's activities, the order and dig-
illy of the students throughout the
ceremonies was In every way worthy
of a University and Impressed most
tavoriilily  nil our visitors.

POLITICIANS HAVE
CHANCETO TALK
Hod-hot politics will reign supreme
today (Friday), In Room A 100, when
Freshmen and Hophotnorca try nut
for places on tho debating teams to
go against Victoria. The subject for
the try out Is: "Hesolved that thu
(lovomtnent of William Lyon Mac-
Kensle King deserves tho conlldenee
of the Canadian people," Volcanic
supporters of tlio Tory, Labor und
Progressive parties have their chunce
here of live glorious minutes or proclaiming exactly what they think of
the Liberals, while tho staunch upholders of Mr. King's policy can defend It to tho last ditch, This topic
Is not the subject ot tho debate Itself, which will be held on Friday,
November the 6th, both here and In
Victoria.
Those students seeking still greater
glory car sign up for tho general tryouts for ALL the Inter-colleglate debutes of the session, to be held on
Monday, October 28th, at 3 p.m.
Those try-outs are open to membors
of all yeurs. There Is a choice of subjects. Economists aud politicians can
speak for three mluiit.es on: "Hesolved that a protectve tariff Is In the best
Interests of Canada," while lofty Idealists and bitter cynics can have their
say on: "Hesolved that western civilization is becoming a degenerating
influence on mankind."
Successful candidates will automatically go Into the ordeal of final tryouts which will probably be held on
Tuesday, at 4 p.m.

In Wednesday's issue, one of the
brightest of our editorial staff remarked that the old saying, "A rose
by any other name would smell aa
sweet," may by a little twisting be
altered into "A university student in
whatever place he may be, will act
the same." The "twisting" is probably done like the celebrated deriving
of Massachusetts from Moses, you
drop the "oses" and add the "assa-
chusetts."

There are a number left, showing
that all the students have not yet

be done without. Members of the

Duck-on-the-Rock
Advocated For
Major Sportt
Mdltor  I'byssey:
Dear Sir;
As we know athletics are being
curtailed this year, so why spend
money lining out rugby teams with
superfluous paraphernalia. Headgear,
for Instance, should not be necessary,
us most rugby men are boneheads
Why buy them football shoes; they
don't appreciate It; nil they do Is
kick when they got them.
Inter-colleglate truck men thought
they hud started something when
they wan to Edmonton last year, but
they hadn't. .No team was sent this
year, because wo didn't want to got
licked. The times made at Winnipeg
in the half-mile and mile were 2 minutes 21 seconds and r> minutes three-
llfths seconds; tho Varsity rocords
in these events nre 2 minutes 6 aud
three-fifths seconds nnd 4 minutes 49
soconds respectively—not much difference, and think of the money wo
saved!
Tennis ofllclals turned down an Invitation to piny Inter-collegiate tennis
at Edmonton this year because they
were ufruld they wouldn't get
their courts built if they went. What
do these men want to go travelling
about spending student money for
anyway? If they want to go, let them
pay their own way like Demidoff did
last year.
Why have Inter-colleglate sports at
nil? Let us confine our activities to
Inter-class sports that don't cost anything to play, like duck on the rock,
for Instance. Wo have all the equipment right at our door, no gymnasium showers and other luxuries aro
necessary. Muny good athletes have
confined their actlvlltos In later life
to playing with rocks. Tho coach, or
warden, could still cull out the numbers of the Canadian rugby men from
the line and they would be allowed
to wear striped sweaters, too.
Chess might be played at U. B. C.
very economically on the library floor.
Co-eds could use the squares for hop
scotch.
Rugby men who think chess is a
quiet game Bhould read about the
King of Bulgaria who, instead of
checkmating his opponent In the
usual way brained him with a chess
piece.
The editorial in the Ubyssey of October 13th states "Inter-colleglate Rugby Is as impossible now as It is inevitable in the future." Let us continue to he a "next year" college In
inter-colleglate athletics.
If we play Inter-collegiate Rugby we
might have our sport commercialized
us It Is in American colleges. We
henr stories like this of some of the
I'nlted States colleges: - The couch
drives up In ti straight eight, running
over several harmless professors on
his wav to the President's olllce. He
says "All lectures are off for the day,
President, we are playing the Coney
Island Red Hots this afternoon, you
and a couple of profs, hud better come
and help to rub the hoys down."
We do not tolerate this sort of
thing at U. B. C. •
Yours  for duck on the  rock  as  a
major sport.

Gaston Takes to Politics
Founileil oh Fact al tht Letter* Club
Mottling
Dear Editor:
I want to tell you the straight facts
about what happened to mo the other
night, and In doing so to dispell the
vile rumours which are once again
being circulated to blast my snowy
and unsullied reputation. Those rumours!- The vain efforts of a Jealous
editorial board to wreck my literary
career.--! defy I hem! Why, If I only
told half I knew about that worm Mc-
Qoockle and his crew I—But to proceed. As you know, I occasionally
suffer from slight colds In the head,
and the small draught which I drained
before I attended that political meeting was of u purely medicinal nature.
I walked Into that hall In u state of
perfect, sobriety. Oh, I know I
shouldn't have told the chairman he
looked like a fish, and I dare say it
Isn't quite done to exhibit a Charleston solo on such occasions. But I
was only trying to cheer 'em all up,
and that was surely no reason for
throwing me out on my ear! And
then, well, a man needs a little refreshment after such treatment,
doesn't he, eh what? By the wuy,
street cars were acting awfully queer-
ly the other night. I distinctly saw
three linked together, yet they were
only one, If you know what I mean.
1 admit I put my foot through the car
window. But dammit, hadn't I paid
my faro? Isn't this a free country!
Yet that fool conductor was really
quite rude and unkind. An' another
thing, you know that on these foggy
evenings It is exceedingly difficult to
calculate where one Is. Why, when I
got off that car I was absholu -absolutely lost. I simply had to sit down an'
figure It out. The cop who came
along seemed crazy anyhow. He
wanted to know why I was drawing
pictures In the road at the Intersection of Broadway an' Granville. So
I naturally told hint to g6—to go
'way. I ashked him where his green
arm band was. Then, he really became quite kind. He called a big
black automobile and gave me a nish
ride. He said It was specially kept
to take lost people home. So I appreciated it, and to show my 'ppreci-
atlon I sung him the "Collegiate" nlsh
ind loud, And then the blighter hit
me! 'S a beastly cruel world. That's
Ml! I have a chum, nice fellow. I
don't know him very well. He balled
me out. Remember never to trust
that liar McOookle. My love to your
wife  an'  kiddies.

Swimming Club
Secures Coach
The U. B. C. Swimming Club has
been able to procure the services of
Mr. Norman Cox for the coming year
as coach, Mr. Cox will start immediately and promises to do all In his
power to build up new swimmers and
to put the university on the map as
far as swimming is concerned, He especially urges beginners to join. He
will give any person who takes an interest In swimming all the coaching
he wants as long as he shows the right
spirit,
There are a great number of stunts who do not take part In any
athletics nt nil and consequently have
very little exercise whatever, and
there Is also a number who are too
bashful, because, as they say, they
aren't good enough. Now that Is all
of. The University Is paying for a
conch and It Is up to them to get their
money's worth out of him, bo don't
let that excuse keep you back.
This year there will be at least three
meets, If not more. There will be the
Victoria meet, one with some of the
city clubs (after Christmas), and possibly a meet with one of them before
Christmas. After Christmas there will
be the Inter-class meet. Here Is whore
the novices will have much more
chance to show their stuff. In this
meet there will be a chance for nearly everyone to try, and, what Is more
Important, a chance to get In and help
your class win the Governor's cup.
So let us tri>t rid of the bnshlul sniff
and put U. B. C. on the map, now.
Membership tickets can be bought
from "Bob" Gillespie, and If the tanks
become overcrowded we will go ahead
and get more time.

Tacoma Coach
Criticizes Varsity
"Need Proper Training," Say* Tacoma
Coach
"Mun for man It was a better team
than mine," said Coach "Mac" Mo-
Nea! of the College of Puget Sound,
Tacoma, following his outllt's tussle
with the Unlvorslty of Hrltlsh Columbia eleven at Athletic Purk. The
sandy-haired mentor from the City of
Destiny was speuklng of the uggregu-
tlon of Varsity men who have undertaken to put the local school on the
football map Internationally.
"They wore big, they wore strong,
they were courageous," he went on,
"and there wore one or two of that
bunch who might make stars on any
Pacific Coast team.
"Next yoar If we don't have a better team I will expect a beating when
we tangle with Hrltlsh Columbia-
provided that the boys here continue
their study of football and quit trying
to mix two games successfully.
"When I sny two games I mean
American football and Canadian rugby. Your hoys played more rugby
than they did football.
Lack of Sxparitnot
"They apparently lacked all knowledge of tho-vory fundamentals of football. Our system of Interference kept
them bewildered, their stance was
wrong, and the forward pass was an
unknown quantity in their game.
"But all of that can be corrected

"Pick out about three plays and
train with them until they ure properly executed.
"Turn out u team that can execute
two plays well und are sure ladders
and they'll seldom be snowed under."
The foregoing comes from » coach
who has never had anything but
mediocre material to work with.
And yot he has placed a little tichool
of less than 500 students on the
Northwest football map.
His words furnish food for thought
for the Varsity men now delving Into
the Intricacies of American football.
They would he ratified by 95 per cent,
of the couches in the States.
The Opinion of the East
No matter how small a University
is it can still turn out a winning rugby team. It is not always the largest
college that turns in nil the victories,
for witness (Queen's University, which
Is the smallest college in the Kastcrn
Inter-ColloKliite 1 'n ion and yet has
held the Dominion rugby championship for the past three seiirs and bids
fair to capture the honors again this
year.
"You could stick the whole of
Queen's into the buck campus of Toronto Varsity," nays a Toronto writer,
"but where can you stick the Queen's
rugby  team?"

your eye on them.
Equipment Rules
To Be Enforced
Players and managers of all University tennis are asked to study the following rules closely. Now that they
have been made public they are to be
Klrlctly enforced.   It Is hoped that by
1 Is means the large sums of money
spent on new equipment each year will
ie greatly reduced,
1. A player must obtain the permission of the team manager or club
president, or any olllclal which the
dub wishes to name, and he must ob-
'n n a requisition slip from that olllclal.
2. This requisition slip must be
changed lor one Issued by either the
curator (Curtis Tlmleck), or Jack
Buchanan, which allows the player to
buy equipment In the M.A.A. name.
The above men will buy equipment for
a club or Individual If desired.
3. When a player or official obtains
a requisition to buy, or the equipment
■t self, he must sign an equipment slip,
which makes him responsible for the
"oulpment, It's safe-keeping, and It's
•eturn when called for.
In the case of an official obtaining
equipment lor a team, he must be per-
onally responsible for obtaining the
signature of euch player to whom
equipment is given. Equipment slips
will be provided by Jack Buchanan or
the curator.
All equipment will be handed out at
Jnck Buchanan's store, corner Tenth
and Sasamat, Mr. Buchanan can be
found either nt his store or at the new
track,
H0T-D0G STAND
DISAPPEARS!
Weepings and Waitings Accompany Loss nf Stand.
That familiar collection of boards
and signs and students and odors and
sounds—the hot dog stand—has gone
the way of all temporary things. The
unfortunate part of this cessation of
activities on the part of the Jolly pur-
veyors of Coney Island redhots, coffee,
pop and chocolate bars, Is that there
is not yet anything to take Its place.
But that Is another story, and we hope
'•■nt the much-dlscussed room In the
basement of the auditorium will be
iprn for business before we all become confirmed tutors of the dinner
:mil.
Willi Ihe second or third day of college the members of Arts '26 saw the
necessity of makiiiu some arivmge-
'reel whereby the students could M't
■o ret Inn-,' to eat at noon. Members
ol the class volunteered to serve in
shirts, and until the stand was removed for the official opening ceremonies
did a thriving business with the noonday crowds of students.
In the twelve days that the stand
was operating the class realized over
wo hundred dollars. This money they
•impose to turn over to the University
> —.looment Commission who will
■pend it in some manner beneficial to
the whole college as a gift from Arts
'2f>. The students and faculty mnde
good use of the "dogsology," as one of
the freshmen called the stand, and
appreciated this side-activity of the
senior class.
