U.BJC. Has Now
Two Victories
Over Stanford
On Monday, Dec. 26, the Varsity
Rugby Team bore off the laurels of a
hard-fought game against a heavier
Stanford fifteen by a score of 8-0.
The day was cold and cheerless and
the ground at Brockton Point frozen
hard but rather mercifully covered
with an inch of powdery snow. In
spite of these unpromising conditions
the four thousand enthusiasts present
were treated to as fine an exhibition
of rugby as one could wish to see.
The arch outside the gates of the
ground, the words of welcome on the
fence opposite the entrance and the
Varsity shield on the snow immediately in front of the grandstand, bore witness to the highly successful work of
the decoration committee. The northern end of the grandstand held the
Varsity rooters, the vivid scull caps
leaving no question as to their identity,
while in the portion of the field immediately in front Yell King "Brick"
Anderson and his henchmen held undisputed sway-
During the wait for the proceedings to start, a telegram of good
wishes from President and Mrs. Klinck
was read. A "kla-how-ya" for the
crimson-clad and very hefty-looking
visitors as they trotted on the field, a
sky-rocket for the blue and gold who
soon followed them, and all waited
eagerly for the opening whistle.
Shortly before 2:30 Stanford kicked
off and for a minute or two kept the
play in the Varsity half. Then steadily back down the field it went and
Carlisle, getting the ball from a line-
out was brought down a few yards
from the visitors' goal line. For five
minutes the. pressure continued until
a Stanford man intercepted a pass and
started a rush which ended at midfield.
After fifteen minutes of even play the
Cardinals forced their way into the

Expedition to
Victoria Proves
Varsity Spirit
The fourth annual trip to Victoria
had even the weather on its side. The
journey across, though by some maligned as "a rough passage", was most
enjoyable, and at 3:30 we landed in
Victoria with the good-natured noise
and importance which has always
characterized our invasion. Then to
hotels, and the momentous question of
how many students may be accommodated by one room.
The first event was half an hour
late in starting but eventually the gun
went at 4:05 p.m. Our crew although
they had been over the course before,
were unfortunate in steering between
the C.P.R. wharves, thus allowing Victoria an easy win. Quite a wind was
blowing and an unintentional foal at
the bend gave Victoria a lead of about
a length which they were holding when
cur crew went op the course.
Coates, McLaren, Banfield and Jones
upheld honors for 'Varsity.
At 5:30 p.m., Findlay and J. Underbill clearly demonstrated their superiority at Badminton taking the J.B.A.A.
team into camp, 15—0, 15—1>, 13—5,
Seven p.m., found the crowd at the
\ictoria High School gym. The first
f.ame between 'Varsity Lad tag and Victoria Hiish resultel in -t victory for
our team by the score of 21—14. Play
was very even throughout, but superior
combination and shooting were displayed by our team. 'Varsity: Anne
Stevenson, Isabel McKinnon, guards;
Gladys Weld, centre; Eve Eveleigh,
Helen Tatlow, forwards.
The second game between 'Varsity
Senior B and Victoria College was
fast from start to finish, but the home
team clearly showed a knowledge of
the floor and displayed better combination and ability to find the baskets.
Half-time found the score 11—19
against 'Varsity and the final whistle
found our opponents leading by 18—32.

Varsity Victors in
McKechnie Cup
Game at Capital
Varsity 5; Victoria 3. Such was the
final score of what was probably the
most exciting game ever played by
Varsity. Never before have we had
to wait so long for victory, and seldom
have the winning points been so difficult to obtain. Scoring in the first
half, Victoria had a 3-point lead during
almost the entire game, and though
Varsity clearly demonstrated in the
second period that they were the better team, yet at times it seemed as if
the points necessary to give us victory
would not be made. Small wonder
then, that when Penwill crossed the
line with only three minutes to go for
time, the Varsity supporters went wild
with enthusiasm, which reached even
a higher pitch when, a minute later,
Val. Gwyther converted, placing us
two points in the lead. A more exciting finish to a game was never seen
and our old fighting spirit was right
there; shown in the slow but sure
grinding down of the Victoria team,
and in the wild support given by those
who were fortunate enough to be
The first half was evenly contested,
there being little to choose between
the two packs; had Cameron, however,
fallen on the ball, a number of Victoria's rushes would have been stopped
almost before they had started! The
Victoria team went over the line some
twenty minutes after play started,
scoring from a forward rush. Their
try was not converted. By this time
it was apparent that Varsity had the
advantage, as far as three-quarter
work was concerned, but the way in
which the Victoria backs marked up,
verging on being offside, made the
work of opening up the game a very
difficult proposition.
Half time came with Victoria leading 3-0.

The third game between 'Varsity
Senior A and J.B.A.A., looked like a
sure win for us at the offset as we
were leading at one time by 14—1.
Half-time saw the score 14—9 in our
favor, but Bob Whyte, grey haired
Victoria veteran, led our opponents in
a very rough but successful offensive,
the final score resting 25-16 against us.
Play was rough throughout and the
referee failed to call numerous fouls-
Tommy Wilkinson and Fisher were
both hurt in the second half but gamely resumed play. The team: Elliot and
Carlyle, guards; Wilkinson, centre;
Bickel  (4)  Fisher (10) forwards.
Saturday morning at 11:00 'Varsity
Ladies and Victoria Ladies played a
very interesting game of Grass
Hockey. Our team played two Victoria subs and despite the fact that
our opponents were a heavier and
more experienced team we put up a
good game. Half time saw the score
2—4) against us and the final whistle
blew with our opponents on the long
end of a 6—0 score. Their combination and individual play was superior
to ours throughout the game.
Between rugby games a half mile
relay was run between Varsity and
J.B.A.A. The track was in poor condition and so narrow that the two
teams were unable to start together.
'Varsity won the toss and started eighty yards behind the other team. Two
finishing tapes were used and Victoria's last man crossed his tape a bare
three feet ahead of ours. Johnson who
played full back in the first rugby
game ran a good race and had he been
fresh we would probably have won.
Doug. Rae, Hugh Russell, Louis Eck-
hert and H. Johnston ran in order

Between the last two events Mrs,
Hibertson and Miss Grace Welburn of
Victoria gave a very interesting exhibition of fancy swimming and were
accorded hearty applause.
A very enjoyable dance, under the
auspices of the James Bay Athletic
Association^ was held on Saturday
evening in the Empress Hotel ballroom in honor of the University of
British Columbia. Several hundred
were present and enjoyed a perfect
floor and wonderful music. Commencing at 8:45, festivities were not
concluded until twelve, and it was
with a feeling of regret that we heard
the strains of the last waltz. The
dance was a perfect success from a
Varsity standpoint and we feel that it
was   a   very   fitting   conclusion   of   a
most enjoyable holiday.
As the boat left the dock out of the
fulness of our hearts we gave a sky
rocket for Victoria, and then, in case
there were still some in the quiet city
who did not know that U.B.C. had
"been, and come, and gone," we finished off with a rousing "Kitsilano."
The general run of play was certainly in Varsity's favor and we had
a certain amount of bad luck in not
The Varsity team played particularly well and though a large number of
3rd team players were included in the
side they had the. advantage, both in
condition and in team work.
McVittie, playing his first game,
since his injury in October, was in
great form, and a very welcome addition to the pack.
The backs combined well indeed,
considering that they had not played
together before, but, unfortunately,
lacked the finish and experience necessary to put the final touch to a number
of excellent runs.
Though it was certainly disappointing that we did nob win, yet.consider-
ing the team which the J. B. A. A.
fielded against us, the result was quite
On Saturday Dec. 3, Varsity was defeated in their second encounter with
Rowing Club, the score being 12-3.
This was one of the best games the
team has played, in spite of the score
against us. It was fast and interesting,
the Varsity threes working really well
together. The "Rowers" were too
much for us, however, scoring one try
in the first half and three in the
second. Varsity's try came just before time. None of the tries were
Second   Round   Iroquois   Cup.
Varsity  3—Elks  0.
Athletic Park was the scene of the
Elks' Waterloo and from first to last
whistle they were a beaten team. Varsity rooters, in small but noisy numbers, aided in the rout. Crute and
Baker continually broke up Elks'
rushes and after 15 minutes play McLeod soloed up the field and scored.
First half ended 1-0. The second half
opened with the Elks on the offensive,
but on the heavy field their weight
was against them and Jack soon scored, heading the ball into the net. The
Elks played well but Jack's efforts
were rewarded when he scored the
third and last goal of the game. The
whole team played a bang-up game,
condition and team work beating the
Elks. Province will be our next opponents and we should beat them out
again. A little more support for our
Soccer team should be only fair as it
has played excellent foitball all season.
Too much cannot be said for the excellent showing made by both our
teams at Victoria during the trip. Condition and team play were much in
evidence in both games, and to those
men responsible for bringing our
teams to this high standing, much
credit is due. Lome Morgan and his
retainers have pounded muscles and
mended abrasions untiringly, for
months; and Coach McLachlan's eagle
eye has always been watching during
games and throughout training periods.

Varsity twenty-five. The defence held
and McLeod relieved the situation with
a wonderful dribbling run down the
touch line. From a line-out at mid-
field Bickell led the forwards on with
the ball at his feet. A stiff struggle
followed close to the Stanford line.
Then Gross came out of the tangle
with the ball and when tackled passed
to Penwill, who took the ball very
neatly and ran over and scored close to
the posts. Gwyther added two points
with the kick. Just before the try was
scored Bickell received a severe kick
on the head and was taken off before
play was resumed.
Stanford pushed hard from the kick-
off and the remainder of the half was
the most critical period of the game,
played as it was with only 14 men on
the Varsity side. On one occasion
the visitors crossed the line in a dribbling rush but Domoney touched down
before any score resulted. The play
returned to the Stanford end and
Peter, when trying a drop-kick, had his
knee badly twisted. A minute or two
before half-time a fine three-quarter
run by Stanford nearly resulted in a
try. The man with the ball was held
up however, and so failed to score.
Half-time came with the score at
5-0 in favor of the home team and the
prospect of completing the game with
a man short. Meekison appeared before the Varsity stand to add his efforts to those of "Brick" Anderson.
When the team re-appeared the rooters re-doubled their efforts and just
before the kick-off were raised to a
great pitch of enthusiasm as Bickell
unexpectedly ran out to take his place.
With players and supporters full of
confidence the second half started
with a rush. The play went to Varsity
all the way. The Blue and Gold forwards continued to control the play in
the loose.
A particularly fine run, in which
Hodson, Gunning and Greggor figured,
came to nought when the ball went
over the deadline. Ten minutes later
the Varsity pack, heeling on the Stanford twenty-five line, put Toman in
possession of the ball. A very pretty
swerving, side-stepping run took "Gee"
to within ten yards of the line when
Gross received his pass at full speed
and went over for a try near the corner flag.   This was not converted.
The remainder of play was a repetition of the first part of the second
half. Just before time, McLeod made
an unsuccessful attempt at a drop
kick and the game ended with the
score 8-0 and the home team pressing
With the final whistle the Varsity
supporters poured onto the field to
cheer the team. The latter, however,
evaded this honor for the comparative
rest and warmth of the dressing-
rooms while the more enthusiastic of
their supporters marched round the
field behind the police pipe band.
Playing on the frozen ground with
its light covering of snow was a novel
experience for both teams but must
have been particularly trying to Stanford, used to the less rigorous climate
of the South. No serious injuries resulted from the hard field, however,
to the great relief of everyone. The
pace was exceedingly fast and the
superior condition of the winning team
was thus a great asset. Undoubtedly,
however, the footwork and knowledge
of the game displayed by the Varsity
forwards were the deciding factors.
Before the match many doubted
whether a forward game could be
played on such a field but the Blue
and Gold proved their ability in this
direction from the start. Though outplayed in the loose, the Stanford forwards repeatedly obtained possession
of the ball in the scrum and Varsity's
tackling powers were frequently called
upon to stop the Cardinals' fast and
weighty three-quarter line.
Among the Varsity forwards, all of
whom played a great game, Bickell
and Gross were perhaps exceptionally
noticeable, while Carlisle was particularly useful at the line-outs. Behind the scrum Ternan, Scott and McLeod gained much ground with their
fine touch kicking.
For the visitors, Lynn at half, and
Wallace and Patrick in the pack, were
the outstanding figures.
After many weeks of strenuous work
and practice the Varsity team, playing
the only game possible under the conditions prevailing, saw their efforts rewarded with well-earned success in
their second consecutive victory over

cont'd from page 1
When play was resumed in the
second half, Varsity's superior condition began to tell, and we began to
force the play continuously. The brilliant work of Boss Johnson, the Vic-
Victoria full-back, saved his team on
many occasions.
The second' half had only three
minutes to go when George Gross,
getting the ball from a lineout, passed
to Buchanan, who, making an opening,
passed to Penwill. The latter going
over for our lone try. It still seemed
doubtful, however, if we should win.
The angle of the kick was by no means
easy and a cross wind rendered the
kick distinctly difficult. The calm,
deliberate way in which "Val" converted was the work of a well-practised
and experienced player.
The forwards all did brilliantly, Gunning, in particular, having a great day,
while of the backs, Ternan and Buchanan were much in evidence.
Victoria certainly played a great
game and are a hard team to beat on
their own ground, but condition, and
a better team, set them back, and gave
Varsity an enviable hold on the McKechnie Cup.
Varsity vs. Vancouver "B"
Played on Saturday, Dec. 10, on a
very muddy field and won, 6-0.
Varsity was playing without seven
of the regular McKechnie team, and
the result was, therefore, very creditable. Johnny McLeod scored the first
try in fine style, five men being involved in the run, which preceded it.
"Al." Bickell went over for the next
three points some ten minutes later.
Vancouver picked up in the second
half and no further score was added.

For the second time Varsity has
stood the supreme test of the Stanford
game and emerged victorious. Last
year the result was a distinct surpris*.
It was said that the game was won by
good luck and the sensational play
of one man. But no one can say anything of that kind about the struggle
of two weeks ago. Varsity won on
condition, play, and fight. Fight was
the main thing. It was the dogged,
fighting spirit of the team, strong in
the knowledge that their fight was for
their Varsity, that sent them over the
Crimson line.
For the Stanford men we have nothing but good words. They are greatly
handicapped in the southern college
by getting little support for English
Rugby. The team that played here
had not had such gruelling, testing,
practice matches as our men had. It
speaks well for their sportsmanship
and sterling playing ability that they
gave our team such a game.
The winning of the game means
more to us, the student body, than a
mere sporting event. Important as
academic work may be or literary and
social activities, there is nothing that
arouses our collective enthusiasm,
that demands our united support, that
makes us feel that we are one body,
that we are the University, as does
the backing of our team on the Rugby
field. We are building up a college
here, each and everyone of us, and a
college   has   to  have   tradition.
All honor to the team, that, with our
backing, has added another achievement to the annals of our college. That
is the meaning of our victory. Our
duty is not to cease working for our
beloved Alma .Mater, but to do all in
our power to foster that slow but
steady growth, the spirit of a great
"We're glad to see you're back" is
our greeting to all our readers who
survived the Christmas exams and the
Victoria trip. "We're glad to see your
back" is also our valediction to those
few whose attendance has been dispensed with. We say this in no spirit
of malice or vainglory, but in all seriousness, for the good of the University
and the student body.
In these days when the Universities
all over the American continent, and
in Britain also, we are told, have to
face the most serious problem of in
adequate accommodation—a problem
with which our own University struggles every year—there can be no palliation for the trifler. This has been the
keynote of the administrative policy
this year in many American Universities. President Shanklin of Wesleyan
said, in his opening day address, "No
one is entitled to a college education
who does not earn the right from day
to day by strenuous and enthusiastic
life." And President Richmond, of
Union College, in the same strain,
"There is no reason why a boy who
comes to college should expect any
easier time than a boy who goes to
work in a factory or in an office. A
college is a workshop."
Every student owes it not only to
himself, but to the country which provides his education and to the other
young people anxious for the same advantages, that he or she should work
consistently and conscientiously. Every trifler excludes by his presence
some more eager potential student,
and proves a drag on all his classmates by his lack of concentration. In
this new era the colleges hold a strategic position of the utmost importance, and they are trying their best
to adapt the old facilities to the new
conditions. But in the last analysis
the success or failure of any college
to maintain a respectable standard of
efficiency rests with the student body,
and the term which we are now commencing should be distinguished by
a systematic and earnest application
to work.
There is no reason why this should
interfere with participation in sports
or student activities: on the contrary
real interest in the class room and
library begets truer enjoyment of relaxation and amusements. And a consistent attention to study throughout
the term obviates most suprisingly
that killing fortnight of final 'plugging'
which is one of the blackest curses
in the educational system of today.
In our seven-year-old University we
hear much of the establishing of tradition. The annual trip to Victoria
is a case in point. Four years ago the
U. B. C. supporters who accompanied
the teams to Victoria were few in
number, and by no means as certain
of themselves as we were last week.
The trip was in the nature of an experiment. Today it has a recognized
status as one of the most enterprising
and altogether enjoyable events that
the college term offers; and it presents an almost unequalled opportunity for the display of our best manners and our inimitable powers of self-
advertisement. The two are indissol-
ubly linked. Any advertisement of
our University which is to be worthy
of its source and worthy of its object,
must be favorable advertisement. It
is not notoriety we want; what will
help U. B. C. is a widespread, good
reputation, and a definite feeling of
sympathy on the part of all who have
heard of us. When we go away from
home, as we did last week, unmistakably labelled as students of the University of British Columbia, we have a
responsibility. It is our conduct
which will advertise our Alma Mater.

Friends of Dr. Ashton will be pleased to learn that the University of
Paris has awarded him the unusually
generous bursary of 2,000 francs in
acknowledgement of the quality of
the major thesis which he hopes to
present in the near future for the official doctoral es lettres.
This degree is difficult of attainment, and very few foreigners ever
have won it. If we are correctly informed, Dr. Ashton may be the second
Englishman to have attempted it successfully. For a Frenchman it means
permission to profess in a state university.

Editor  "Ubyssey,"
My dear Sir:—During the last few
months there has been scarcely an issue
of the local newspapers that did not
contain accounts of one or more college
affairs in their society sections. Regular
meetings of Letters Club, Classics Club,
Historical Society, tea-parties and dances have all been made to fill as much
space as possible, to say nothing of debates (some of which never occurred),
musicales,   etc.
The Vancouver newspaper - reading
public should realize by this time that
University life is one continuous gay
social whirl. People may read, two
weeks ahead, of a much-anticipated
event that is to take place along with
the names of those included in the nonexistent invitation list. They are again
warned on the critical day that the affair is about to happen and they are reminded the day following that a brilliant
social victory has been achieved.
In one issue of the "Province" there
were no fewer than five University "Society" items and each followed by a
long stupid list of names of people who
in many cases were not aware that they
had been "among those present."
This sort of thing is "done" but it
seems to me it has been overdone. We
are more or less at the mercy of public
opinion and this kind of publicity is certainly not going to gain us any favor of
the type worth considering. It is vulgar,
to say the least, and 1 think I am voicing
the opinion of a number * when I say that
it is time that it is stopped. The newspaper people are not to be blamed—they
publish the stuff given them.

Editor "Ubyssey,"
Dear  Sir:
We are a young University, Canada's
youngest, and like a strong healthy child
our development has been exceedingly
rapid; so rapid, in fact, that we have
out-grown our clothes several times and
it has been necessary to extend and alter
them considerably. This fact does not
hamper us as it might, and why? Because being of the West we are accustomed to pioneering and have learned to
rely on our own resources.
We have learned to appreciate the
value of co-operation. Why not then
carry this spirit of co-operation farther
than the precincts of our University9
Why not link up with other Universities?
We at the present time are feeling our
isolation from them and are wondering
how  best  to  be  one  with   them.
Firstly, we must have an inter-University objective, an objective that requires the backing of every member
of the University. How would you like
to have us hold the Canadian Rugby
Football Championships? Before answering—How did you feel on Christmas
Day,  1920? and  1921?
At the present time there is an agitation to develop Canadian Rugby in B.C.
Competition with other Universities
assists very materially toward the development of College spirit. We have
been handicapped in this regard due to
the fact that we are playing English
Rugby which is played by very few
other universities and consequently
games with other University teams are
difficult to arrange. Should we introduce the Canadian game w.e would open
a much larger field of possibility in this
standard college sport.
Now is our opportunity: while we are
yet in our infancy let us adopt Canadian
Rugby Football and foster the game.
G. E. W. C.
Editor   Ubyssey,
In your issue of Dec. 1 Mr. Sherwood
Lett defends his translation of our
university motto as "it's up to you."
Mr. Lett defines a motto as "a laconic
statement of an ennobling idea," and
claims, fairly enough, that his interpretation fulfills both the requirements
of this definition. May 1 suggest, however, that there are two rather obvious
reasons why the university should not
adopt this rendering. The first is. that
the motto, so interpreted would not be
Latin; the second is that the translation
itself would not be English. Since, (as
Mr. Lett admits) "Tuum Est" does not
and cannot mean "it's up to you", what
earthly right have we to translate it
so? Moreover, the English phrase is a
colloquialism, and neither an attractive
nor a durable one. In a decade or two
it   will   have   no  meaning  whatever.
1 suspect that the unknown discoverers (or inventors) of our motto intended
it to have its obvious meaning. "It is
yours." But it is generally conceded
that such a motto would be a poor one.
It remains for us to find a rendering at
once possible and desirable. Mr. Lett
dismisses the alternative suggested in
the editorial as "beside the point." Yet
I still venture to believe that the interpretation based on the concluding words
of the third Ode of Horace's Fourth Book
<.■'«■    h- .   ■ ■   o■■
is sufficient evidence of its Latinity.
The sentiment is dignified and appropriate: we students and former students
of U. B. C. have good reason to acknowledge our debt to our Alma Mater; and
it is to be hoped that as a university we
are duly thankful even for those small
mercies which have been vouchsafed
us by the people of the province. Gratitude, while not so fashionable a sentiment as the one suggested by Mr. Lett,
is not a less noble one.
True, it may be difficult to find a
translation as laconic as Mr. Lett's, but
this apparent disadvantage may in fact
drive our students to the most profitable expedient of seeking the meaning
of their university motto at its original
S.   M.   SCOTT.
The following letter which appeared
in the "Daily Province" of Jan 10
leserves the consideration of all stud-
Sporting Editor, Province:—
Sir:—During the season 1920-21, the
U. B. C. entered a team in the Senior
Amateur Hockey League of Vancouver
and the red-brick Arena echoed with
the lusty cheers of their rooter's club
both for their own team's brilliant play
and of their opponents.
This year the University is represented by an intermediate and junior
team, and the boys of these teams have
been holding up the honor of the U. B C.
in a splendid fashion, having won most
uf the games in which they have participated.
But the public is beginning to wonder
if it is the policy of the U. B. C. to only
support the senior branches of their
athletic undertaking, for the rooters
have been conspicuous by their absence.
Surely the student's council of the faculties do not wish such a deplorable condition to continue in their must. Let's
get together, U. B. C. and be on hand
next   Friday night.
Yours  for  sport,
Amateur   Fan.

(By John H. Mennie, M.A.)
I have never been able to appreciate
fully the beauties of the system whereby one pays a shilling for the privilege
of being out after 11 p.m., or the fact
that to be out after midnight is the
unpardonable sin. Last year I carried
a latch-key—strictly against regulations, but I was in unlicensed lodgings and had a landlady who was
amenable to reason. But this year it
is not so, and furthermore, B. N. C.
is one of the most difficult colleges in
the place to get into by any route
other than the authorized one through
the gates. I used to wonder why anyone went to Magdalen if they could
get in anywhere else, but I realize
now that it is a college which has
some good points. Some worthy benefactor, who must have been addicted
to late hours in his own undergraduate days (or should I have said
nights?) left a bequest to pay all gate
fines, so that staying out after eleven
is a comparatively inexpensive form
of amusement there. Also there are,
I understand, four recognized ways of
entering the college precincts without
unduly disturbing the lodge porter, at
least two of which present no difficulties to any man of even moderate
athletic attainments. Mills is fond of
relating the story (he declares it is
a perfectly true one) of the undergraduate who started one night to
make his way in via the Cherwell. By
wading a short distance up that shallow stream it is possible to reach a
gate which is very readily climbable.
In order to facilitate his aquatic manoeuvres, our hero removed certain of
his nether garments and set boldly
forth. Unfortunately, he slipped, and
in regaining his balance, permitted
said indispensable nether garments to
escape his grasp. The night was very
dark so he dragged forth a box of
matches and took up the search. Possibly due to the darkness, possibly
to the fact that he had dined perhaps
too well, the hiding place of the trousers continued to elude him. He continued to light matches and endeavored to lure the missing garments to
him by soothing words , until even the
porter at the lodge was awakened to
the fact that there was something
wrong. So the porter came out and
joined in the search. Mills, however,
avers that he managed to convince
the porter that he had started to enter
the college before the witching hour
of midnight arrived and that his delay
had been unavoidable. So. having regained his trousers, he was permitted
to enter and there the matter ended.
We had an address from Stephen
Leacock, to the British-American club
a week or two ago. It was on the old
topic of the necessity of co-operation
between the two great English-speaking nations and the importance of the
Universities in promoting said1 co-operation. He was quite funny in spots,
probably his . brightest remark being
to the effect that he was a cultivated
man—cultivated to the point where a
rotation of crops would probably be

The Frosh of outward show deride.

Scoff at the culture and the science.

Despise the Juniors' airs and flutters;
While Juniors mock the formal fool
Who looks and speaks and walks by

In fancy wiser than the rest,

Our College windows look away
Across the city to the bay.
Between, a narrow inlet runs,
(Ten thousand leagues to Tahaea)
Gold in the gleam of summer suns,
Sullen beneath a winter day—
'Tis there they build the ocean ships,
(Ten thousand leagues to Tahaea).
Beneath the bridge a shadow slips
And wavers, as a great beam dips,
Then lifts to place, while daylight dies
(Ten thousand leagues to Tahaea)
And finished now the great ship lies,
So   soon   to   foam   through   Southern
(Ten thousand leagues to Tahaea).
I wonder why my fancy sees
Surf    spray,    and    scarlet-blossoming
My place is here with college books
(Ten thousand leagues to Tahaea)
The   great   ships   keep   my   lingering
But   I   must   turn   thoughts   back   to
I wish i could not see the ships!

Most of us have read with enjoyment the column entitled "Humors of
the Fray" which appears weekly on
the editorial page of our esteemed contemporary, the "Daily Province", and
lovers of this wise and witty commentary will be interested to hear
that the author, Mr. C. L. Graves, has
published through the firm of Basil
Blackwell, Oxford, a volume of light
verse "New Times and Old Rhymes." The "Ubyssey" has been favored with an advance copy of the book,
which deals in a vein of gentle satire with personages and events in
current politics and literature. In
these days when the daily press makes
a mountain out of every transient
molehill, it is difficult to keep a sense
of relative values in contemporary
history, and such well-aimed ridicule
as this, untouched with malice, does
much to restore the perspective. The
book includes a few neat adaptations
of "Horace", and in general Mr. Graves' style has something of the Hor-
atian grace and point.
From the same publisher we have
received "Virgil in Relation to the
Place of Rome in the History of Civilization," a lecture by Sir Herbert Warren, which is by no means so "highbrow" as its title suggests, but is a
pleasant literary chat, touching on
Dante, Tennyson and Matthew Arnold as well as making Virgil a very
living figure. It almost makes us
sorry we do not take Classics.
Announcement has been made for
i the orchestral and glee club practices
! during the month. The Glee Club will
meet Monday noons in the Church,
and on Thursday noons in the auditorium, and all members are asked
to turn out. Orchestral practices under the leadership of Miss Morris will
also be held on Tuesday evenings in
the auditorium. These meetings may
be changed and further meetings held
—and all members of the club are
asked to watch the notice boards.

before the eyes of the students the
more important things that are going
on in the world at large.

The big "pep" rally, prior to the
closing of the fall session, was held on
the Thursday before the final ending
of lectures, when all the students
gathered in the auditorium to hear
the 'Varsity programme for the holiday season.
Paul Whitley was chairman of the
meeting and introduced to the students, Dr. H. W. Riggs, Chairman
of the Kiwanis University committee,
who outlined at some length just what
the Kiwanis Committee had done and
was doing in connection with erection
of the University buildings at Point
Grey. He said that his club was
whole-heartedly in favor of permanent
buildings for the University and hoped
that they would be begun at some
time in the near future.
Mr. Honeyman, B. Sc, last year's
head of the Rooters' Club, a position
supplanted this year by that of the
Marshall, delivered a live and interesting address. He reviewed the
spirit of 'Varsity on last Christmas
Day and he asked strongly for another big exhibition of organized rooting
in this year's game with Stanford.
After this address the members
of the Rugby Team, led by Captain
"Reg." Hodson, marched onto the platform; skyrockets and cheers for "the
team" were given, and "Reg." Hodson
was called on to speak on behalf of
the team. During the speech a "mock
fight" was started, which, while it
lasted, kept up the excitement of the
meeting, and, although frightening a
few nervous people, it roused cheer after cheer for the team.
The second session of the Varsity
year opened on Monday with a general mass meeting of faculty and students in the auditorium. President
Klinck occupied the chair, and spoke
briefly of the meaning of the term
University and our developing college
spirit, declaring that it was not a
mere name, neither was it just a
place or an institution, but that it was
a feeling of men and women in quest
of truth and wider knowledge.
Dean Coleman gave a splendid address on "The Day's Work." He stated that the activities of the college
student were in a large measure those
comprised in the term "work." With
a touch of gentle irony he referred to
the fact that in lectures, although the
professor seems to do all the work,
a certain task also devolves upon the
student. In more serious vein, he
treated of the psychological and physiological value of work, as causing the
formation of habits intensely important in future life. He gave as a motto
for the coming session: "Thy hour,
waste it not."
' Reno, Nevada.—At a Student Body
meeting, 15 members of the 1921 football squad were awarded their Block
N's. In accordance with a new custom,
6 of the men will receive athletic
blankets instead of sweaters as this
is their third year on the Varsity.
"The poverty of college students is
proverbial.    With some it is more an
attitude of mind than an actual fact."
—Brandon College Quill.
On Dec. 26 the Varsity men wound
their arms around the Stanford team
with such success that the whole college was more than delighted; but the
next day the women did the honors
with a greater degree of success, at
least for the Stanford team. Those
of us who were fortunate enough to
secure tickets found the Tea Dansant
one of the most delightful social
events of the season. All the arrangements were carried out quietly and
with befitting dignity, while the music
was all that could be desired.

The arrangements of the debate between Arts '24 and the Japanese students' debating society have been finally completed and the date of the
debate has been set for February 4.
Arts '24 will be represented by H.
B. Cantelon (leader) and D. J. Anderson, while the Japanese team will be
leki by J. Yonemura, a Japanese Varsity student. The subject for the debate is "Resolved that the Anti-Alien
Land Laws of California Are Unjustifiable," and the Varsity class are taking the negative of the question.
The judges for the debate have not
been finally chosen, but will be soon
announced. The debate is to take
place in the Japanese Gymnasium
Hall, and already much enthusiasm
and  interest  are  being aroused.

W. E. Chambers, lately returned
from Poland, gave an interesting address before a large gathering of students on the conditions of the Universities in Poland. He outlined at some
length the conditions of modern Poland, and declared that it was rapidly
settling down to peace, with a strong
liberal government at the head of a
well-functioning state.
The one crying need of the country
the speaker said, was the lack of efficient universities. Since the demobilization of the armies the students
who wished to continue their studies
had flocked to the universities where
overcrowding was the natural result.
More and better lodging was the
pressing need. Mr. Chambers was designated to get further lodgings for the
University of Warsaw, and, through
his efforts, three barracks were allotted to students, which, after being
swept and scoured, provided the necessary dormitories. Feeding and clothing were the next great problems on
hand. These, however, were suitably
solved by the educational campaign
carried on in the different countries of
the world. Twenty-six nations in all
contributed to the fund, for the relief
of these pressing needs.
The speaker concluded his remarks
by saying that at last student consciousness was becoming worldcons-
ciousness, and that the universities of
Europe were realizing, to a great extent, the importance of the leadership which was their duty.
With a view to helping undergraduates to obtain summer work the
Alumni Employment Bureau has been

Do you like losing half each dance
looking for your partner? The extensive rendezvous system has failed.
Why not mark half the ladies' programmes with an E, the other half
with a W.? If her programme is
marked with an E, He will mark an E
opposite her name on his programme
and will look for her on the East side
of the building. We will give this a
trial at the Alumni Dance on Jan. 18.
Do you apreciate stopping half way
through the supper waltz and joining
the rush down to supper? Why not
have a promenade after the supper
waltz? The patronesses might lead
off around the ball and then down to
supper. We will give this a trial at
the Alumni Dance.
In the supper hall we have a surprise for you. But you'll have to come
to see it.
After supper two songs will be presented; one is a ditty on three prominent characters at U.B.C, the other is
a song the Alumni will support as a
new Varsity Song.
This is the first big Varsity Dance
for 1922 so:—
"Come    Sophomores,    come    Seniors,
come Grads and Freshies too,
Forget   about   your   lectures,   forget
you're feeling blue;
Be  sure  you   check  your  text   books
with Tansley at the door
And  we'll  have  a  better  time   boys,
than we ever had before."
At a meeting of the graduating
class held just before the holidays,
Mr. Hurst, treasurer of Arts '22, submitted a programme of suggested festivities for graduation week. The executive had given a great deal of
thought to the matter, and in accordance with the wishes which the class
expressed at the opening of the session, they mart arrangements that
expenses should be moderate, but that
whatever entertainments were held,
should be of the best possible
The class party of last October
showed their splendid ability to do
this. Consequently the following festivities were submitted and accepted:
Tree-planting at Print Grey. A class
"supper," the uscal Class Day and
uaccalaureat? service, and a picnic.
With regard :o the class gift, the
executive sug:;e,ied a donation to the
library. There v.as a grea; deal of
discussion and at some seen>el < 111--
sf.'isfied a committee was formed to
look more closely into the my tier and
report immediately after the holidays.
