appreciation of the Club's choice as a play for this year. Though the plot

With the grim intention of settling
t|e Manager System, Council met
last Monday nlgbt Bach person gave
his or her opinion in turn, varying between acceptance, total rejection, and
compromise. Then tor the flrst time
this year, tbe president left the chair
in order to voice his opinion on the
matter. He pointed out that under
tbe present system, each Council position, and especially the president's,
was becoming simply a chase after
financial details. With tbls in mind,
he suggested that the Buslnesa Manager System be given a trial for one
year. After a short discussion, the
system was accepted as an experiment for one year.
The C. O. T. C. question was again
brought to the fore when that body
asked permission to use the University crest on its Invitations to the coming smoker. Council ruled out the
request on the score that the body
was not a recognized organization on
the campus, and consequently student
opinion would not be in favor of tbe
request. Council pointed out that the
• 0. T. C. was at liberty to approach
the University authorities on tbe matter.
Another important item was the
appointment of next year's Editor-in-
Chief of the Ubyssey. On the recommendation of the Publications Board,
Council appointed Roderick Pllkington to fill this very Important position.
In view of the fact that some misunderstanding may arise over the actions ot Council, and that some people
may wish to express their opinions,
Council asks, since there will be only two more Issuos of the Ubyssey,
that all difficulties be brought direct
to Council members.
Four new cases of mumps among

Five Records Broken
tt Track Meet;
Five records weft broken and one
tied in the most successful Inter-
Class Track Championship ever held.
Dirom, Sclenoe '82, finally emerged
as individual champion ahead ot
Fell, winning the honor by half a
point, Soience '82 oaptured flrst
place among the classes with Arts '80
close behind, and Arts '81 third.
Glorious weather and a fast track
favored the meet and several hundred
students turned out to oheer the
The feature of the meet was the
contest between Dirom and Fell. Fell
started out by winning four races in
tbe flrst forty minutes, a marvellous
example of endurance, and appeared
certain to win the championship for
the second successive "year, Although
he got five firsts In as many events
for 16 points while Dirom with two
flrst, four seconds and one tie for second, collected 151/. points.
Harry Warren's record of 10 2/6
seconds for the 100 yards, which has
stood for five years was equalled by
Fell in the flrst event. Then Selby
ran a beautiful race In the mile and
took 4-5 of a second off the record.
Duran, who seemed to stand a good
chance of winning weakened at the
end and finished a little behind Selby.
The shot-put record was broken by
over three feet by Dirom when he

Future for Engineers in Pulp
Industry Says L Killam
"Possibilities ln the Pulp Industry"
was the theme of the address given
by Mr. L. Killam to the Engineering
Institute, Wednesday, March 13. Mr.
Killam, a former member of the
Mechanical Engineering staff of U.
B. C, is the President, and Managing-
Director of the B ,C. Pulp and Paper
Mr. Killam gave a brief sketch of
the work in this industry from the
cutting clown of the trees to the shipping of the pulp.
There are great possibilities of research in connection with almost
every process. A wastage of 30% to
40% occurs ln the cutting of the logs
and the removal of the bark. A
method to remove Tannin from the
bark so that It will return something
when sold ls being sought. The recovery or economic utilization of
waste products In the cooking-acid is
still an unsolved problem. The elimination or uso of the enormous
amounts of waste steam also provides
a field for Investigation.
"The outstanding development of
the twentieth century has been the
growth of the Paper and Pulp Industry," quoted Mr. Killam, and added
that "II. ('. offers greater possibilities
for the forestry engineer than any
place we know of." New opportunities are opening up all the time for
hydraulic engineers and mechanical
engineers can be busy anywhere.
In closing Mr. Killam mentioned
the Association of Professional Engineers of B. C. to which lt Is necessary to belong ln order to engage ln

In an Interview with the Ubyssey,
Mr. Munn expressed himself as being
very appreciative of the honour conferred upon him. "I wish to thank all
my supporters for their confidence ln
me," he said. "I would like especially
to express my satisfaction that It has
been such a clean contest throughout.
I hope that the student body Will

Trophy at Stake
the mckechnie cup
Abovo Is tho famous McKechnie
Cup which will be at stake when
Varsity meets Vancouver Saturday.
Presented to the B. C. Hugby Union
by Dr. R. K. McKechnie, In 1889, lt
has beon the coveted symbol of rugby ascendancy In the Province for
forty years. Since entering tho series In 1922 the U.B.C. team has won
the cup four times. At present Vancouver haa possession, but Varaity
Is preparing to stage a sensational
come-back to restore the cup to its
old place in the University.
Varsity To Clash With Vancouver Rep
In McKechnie Cup Game, Saturday 3:15
Students Now Two Bamt Down in Tlrtt-Ont-of-Fivt Series
By V. van Sickle
Tomorrow at Brockton Point, Vancouver and Varsity meet In what may
prove the deciding tilt In the McKechnie Cup aeries. The score board as
It stands at present shows the city with two games on tbe winning side of
a best three out of five games series. Varsity will be on their toes on Saturday to establish the necessary foothold to give them a chance for the cup.
The game Is billed to start at 8.16 with E. L. Yeo or Jim Underhlll officiating.
University teams in the past have had the habit of Improving as tbe
season advanced, and the more handicaps and defects they suffered the harder
and more effectively they worked at the end. This year's team has shown,
by the standard of play In the last few games In which it was engaged, that
it. is no exception. Gruelling hours of practice, a steadfast loyalty to tbe
game and the untiring devotion of Coach Jack Tyrwhltt has made for Varsity an efficient and smoothly running machine,
Expressions of the Varsity players
Exuberance of Spirits
Causes Delinquency
sis. mwbih mhe.sk s.cj.
"Many cases of delinquency arise
from exuberanoe of spirits," Mrs. J.
L. Jamieson claimed, as one ot the
main reasons for delinquency, in her
lecture on Tuesday ln Ag. 100, under
the auspices of the S. C. M.
This exuberance combined with the
effects of mob psychology on the
growing mind often caused the adolescent child to commit acts that would
otherwise never occur to him.
Lack of development of the creative Instinct, added to lack of recreational facilities—the faot that "they
don't know what to do"—are often
reasons for delinquency, the speaker
pointed out, while the unemployment
problem, and uncongenial home conditions ln general, create grave Issues
for the juvenile court officials.
Mrs. Jamieson pointed out that the
majority of juvenile delinquents were
boys, as "girls conform better than
boys," though she questioned the value; of absolute conformity as "the
creative faculty takea the form of nonconformity,"
The inferiority complex, due often
to physical disability, or lack of understanding ln the home, Is another
cause for delinquency, but the speaker added that many cases baffled all
attempt, to analyse them.
"The aim of the Juvenile court is to
reclaim the child to the normal path
and make him a desirable member of
the social community," and Mrs.
Jamieson explained that this was
brought about by appealing to the social conscience of the child—a method
which haa proved more successful
than any yet tried.
As a last resort tbe child is sent
to a foster home, under careful supervision, or to the Industrial School
where he ls "taught. regular habits
of discipline."
as to the outcome of the game are
very optimistic and Capt. Willis is
counting on a decisive victory to ef*
fectlvely dispel Vancouver's expectations of retaining the silver trophy
this year. The team has had several
hard workouts ttyls week), besides
keeping In condition through regular
noon-day runs, They are being coach*
ed particularly in open play, the forwards breaking fast and the back*
field given every opportunity to show
Its speed.
The Rep team which bas been pies
ed by the English Rugby Union
include some notable Vancouver rU|
stars. It will be as follows:—Patterson, Richardson, Wilson, Cameron,
Murray, Rowan, Atvasoff, Niblo, Farm*
er, Pollock, Nichol, Donaldson. Cole*
man, Potts, Barn, Jones.
The U. B. C. team will line-up as
follows:—Ford, Fell, McNeil, Locke,
Willis, P. Barratt, Murray, Mason,
Fraser, Farrls, Noble, Wilson, Nixon,
B. Barratt, Estabrook. This combination has proved itself in play before
and Is expected to show Vancouver a
few tricks of the gamo.
Toronto Pastor to Address
"The Value of Genesis" will be the
subject of an address given by Dr.
A. B. Winchester, D.D., on Monday,
In Arts 106, at 12.10 o'clock.
Dr. Winchester Is the pastor of the
Knox Presbyterian Church of Toronto, said to be the wealthiest Church
of that denomination in Canada. During the course of his career Dr. Winchester has continued to pursue his
academic studies ln a variety of fields
so that he is well versed ln modern
philosophic and scientific thought.
He has had Interviews with many of
the most famous scientists, especially
those of the geological and biological
sciences. A number of these men he
knows personally; the late Lord Kelvin might be mentioned. Dr. Winchester has also travelled widely having visited many Asiatic and European countries.
In the course of an interview, Dr,
Winchester stated that for fifty years
he has pursued dally a critical study
of the Bible, and also that he Is
familiar with every argument or
theory of any Importance.

In our issue ot February 1 we published an editorial on
"Fraternity Probation and Student Government." In it we criticised the Inter-Fraternity Council for attempting to put on probation new fraternities on tbe basis ot youth rather than on the
basis of merit, Moreover, wa pointed out how a new fraternity,
ths Ohl Omega Psl, had objected to probation when it affected
Chi Omega Psl, but were apparently willing that it should apply to other new fraternities that might organise in the future*
Evidently the charges we made could not be refuted. No
correspondence was received from any of the organisations
concerned. Thst is, none of the fraternities, nor the Inter-
Fraternlty Council, deemed it wise to attempt to explain its
actions to the Alma Mater Society through the oolumns Of the
student newspaper. The natural conclusion is that the charges
were well-founded, ln so far as the past was concerned. Now,
however, fraternity affairs have taken a different trend.
A new fraternity, the Tau Lambda, has been formed on the
campus, bringing the number of recognized fraternities up to
ten. This group applied for recognition at the Inter-Fraternity
meeting Tuesday night. Its application waa endorsed unanimously without any "year's probation" regulation affecting it.
That Is, the Tau Lambda fraternity is now recognized on an
•equal basis with other fraternities. Moreover, the motion that
full privileges be granted Tau Lambda, was advanced by the
president of Chi Omega Psi — the fraternity we previously
charged with Indirect selfishness.
We congratulate Ohl Omega Psl and the Inter-Fraternity
Council that the charges levelled by the "Ubyssey" concerning
the probation rule evidently no longer apply.

Once more the burden of Spring Examinations ls almost
upon us and with the onslaught comes the usual demand for
library books. It ls our yearly plea to students to refrain from
keeping books out longer than ia necessary, or from taking out
several reference books for one course at the same time.
Apart from this, however, there ls another matter to which
we would call the attention of frequenters of the stacks. We
wonder how many of the books stored in carrels and from whioh
the honour students especially derive their stores of knowledge,
are called for by other students. Rumour says that frequently
—and fact has proved—that several times popular books are
found among a pile of tomes in one of the carrels.
It seems unnecessary to point out that this method of withholding books is hardly fair to the students. More often, too,
it is the pass course students who suffer for the sins of the
honour students. We do not suggest of course that all the
book& found in the carrels are of general interest but we would
ask that all who have private collections, look them over and "return any books that at this time of year may be of use to other

more than anything, naturalness, as
did the part of Rollo's Sister Lydla,
played by Mary Stewart Miss Stewart played the conventional sister,
very excellently though perhaps
without the usual aggressiveness associated with such parts. Without
doubt, the most subtly perfect characterisation in the play was Mr. Stein,
the unemotional theatrical producer,
played by Malcolm Pretty. A part of
this sort, where one must combine
ubstlnaoy, ignorance and racial
shrewdness without mlsproportlon ls
exceedingly difficult. There was, how*
ever, a slight shade ot dlsutluslon*
ment In Act I. Scene 1, where Stein
hurries into Rollo's dressing-room un*
der the impression that the latter baa
evaouated. It gives one a < slight
shock to realise that Stein Is exces*
slvely sentimental at heart, especially
where he croons out: "Call me Ablel
Call me Ablel" Mr. Pretty was brilliant,
Associated with Rollo's theatrical
oat are four actors of the "Old School."
Of these, the most Impressionable was
Ann Ferguson as the extraordinary
Mrs. Park Ogles, whose greenly at*
tltude to the world In general ls
rather undermined by laok of a congenial throne. David MacDonald,
Orevllle Rowland and Brio North, play
the three male members of the "Old
Troupe." Brio North, wbo later, de*
oldes that steam-pumps offer more
lucrative advantages than disembodied Hamlets and at the same time develop a great interest in Rollo's sister,
caused great amusement by his part,
which oan be described as "a flgldty
young actor."
Rollo's grandfather, Horato Webster, was played by Alexander Smith.
This, though Mr. Smith played the
part admirably, was not a satisfying
character. A few of his vagaries were
not well designed but in no way detracts from Mr. Smith's portrayal.
However, Rollo's Oreat Aunt Lane,
who lives with his grandfather, satisfies the indefinable lack of realism
by ner own character. Frances Made-
ley in many instances, saved their
lete-a*tetes from "staglness" by a mag*
niftcent "sportlveness." Mr. Smith
however, is finally given an opportunity in a final interview with Rollo
after he bas called him from the
theatre. This was a splendid scone.
Bella, the housemaid at the Websters,
was a comparatively small part, but
Jean Salter fully justified her char
Intertwined in Rollo'a hectic career,
is the worthy Hewston butter and general adviser. Sidney Risk, in man*
ways, was inclined to foroe his part
just a little, though it would be unfair to mark this against his performance. He was shouldered with the
character of a man of many moods,
some stupid, others grotesque and the
rest merely "butlerish," and he succeeded admirably In changing with
the character of the temperamental
servant. In the scene of bis solitary
but sadly Interrupted recitation tie
was singularly diverting.
The stage sets, lighting and other
effects were exoellent, and incidental
muslo supplied by members ot tbe
University Musical Sooiety waa a
pleasing Interlude.

for Its suooess lies with the director

3-5 of a second off her own record in
the 60 yards by loading a fast field
In the time of 6 3-6 seconds. Sally
Carter jumped nearly a foot further
than the best recorded, setting p
new mark of 13 feet 9tt Inches. This
Bhould last for a long time.
Terry ran second ln two tiring races and then came back to break the
record in the 440. Terry Is one of
the most promising runners on the
Campus, running any distance from
100 yards to a mile. His time of
62 4-6 seconds for the 440 will take
a lot of beating In the future.
Thelma Mahon wcs the most outstanding of the women, getting three
firsts, one of them a record. Gladys

limit In two races and leading the
Arts '82 relay team to victory. Jean

Alpen two firsts and a second. Dirom

Candidates Submit Platforms
To the Members of the
Alma Mater Sooiety,
University of British Columbia.
Will you permit me to outline briefly
the position I would take in the event
of my eleotion as president of the
L. 8. B.?
I would consider lt obligatory to Investigate, and familiarise myself with,
the problems that arise In the various
organisations whioh I would represent
To the beat of my ability I would endeavour to assist tn the solution of
theae problems) to maintain harmony
between the organisations themselves,
and betweon them and the Student's
council, I would be prepared at all
times to give a patient hearing to any
member of the Player's Club, Musioal
ttovlety or Debating Union, who felt
that he or she had eausa for complaint.
1 would try to present only the valid
complaints before the Student's Council.
I would present the requests of the
Player's Club, Musical Society and Debating; Union with all enthusiasm! and
would endeavor to secure tor them a
fall* and equitable hearing.
I would feel It was my duty to easts.
In every way. the presidents of the
other organisations, and the members
of the Student's Council, In order that
student administration might proceed
smoothly and successfully. I would advocate the continuation of tbe progressive and vigorous policy that has been
carried on during the past year.
I appreciate that the office of president of L. H. EJ. calls for some executive experience. Aa evidence of my ex*
Defiance I might point out that I have
held the poaltlolns of vtoe-president,
Debating Unloni vice-president, Mamooks: Literary Representative, Arts 'SI;
and have been for' two years an International debater.
Tours sincerely,
Fellow Members of the
Alma Mater Sooiety i
The Literary and Sclentlflo Bxeoutlve
has for Its taak the general supervision
of all activities nol; purely athletlo.
The three malt, branohes Of the Bxeoutlve are i The Players' Club, The Musical Sooiety and The Debating Union,
Bach of theae organisations has its own
staff that know the particular requirements of their group best. At the present moment I would not venture to suggest any radical ohanges In the policy
or programme of any group. Rut If
ejected to the Presidency of this Bxeoutlve, I would make It my particular interest to ascertain definite Information
about stage management, and the general organisation of work of both the
Ployera7 Club and the Musioal Sooiety,
From personal experience I feel that
the Debating Union la quite competent
to handle International Debates. Tha
Debating Union has been In existence
only one year and surely deserve* at
least another year In which to bring
Its methods to greater fruition.
To my mind, tha share tn determining policy that a member of Counoil
enjoys la equal In Importance to his
specialised duties as head of an executive. I am heartily In favor of the exchange system and the Empire-wide debating project as aet forth by the
N. F. C. U. B. The Manager System bas
had my unqualified support from the
flrat. I .hall be particularly Interested
In the campaign that will be conducted
to acquire equipment for our new gymnasium.
Finally, I realise the responsibilities
that thla office entails and If elected I
will discharge those responsibilities to
the beat of my ability.
Members of tho Alma Mater Society:
In allowing myHelf to be nominated
for President of the Literary and
Scietlflc Executive for the session 19-9-
no. I have fully realised the responsibility I have taken upon myself If
Although tills phase of student activity Is given very little publicity, yet
a wide part of I'niverslty life comes
under the executive—the Players' Club,
the Musical Society, the Debaters'
I'nlon. and many lesser clubs on the
campuH. These activities, in my opinion, should be stressed far more than
they have been In the past. I would
do my utmost to make the Musical
Concert a greater success financially
next year than It was this year by giving  full co-operation to that Society.
In the past years a great deal of
money has been lost trom the lack of
an experienced man to look after the
stage maintenance. To appoint such
a men would be my flrat aot and thus
save this loss of atudenta' money.
Very little more oan I aay except that
the other membera of Council may
count upon my fullest co-operation on
all  matters which oome before them.
In closing I wish to thank those who
so kindly placed  their faith  ln me by
signing my nomination papers.
Youra sincerely,
.Members of  the
Women'a Undergraduate Society
Having served for two years on the
Women's Undergraduate Executive, I
feel I am In a poaltton to put forth a
definite programme which I would
carry out next year, I would first write
a letter ol' welcome to tho Freshettos
as was done laat year, urging them to
buy handbooks. Then I would like to
set> the Initiation another children's
party so that In future thla will become a traditional practice, I would
aluo continue th* dancing class for
women, thus giving more opportunity to
thein lo enjoy the social life of the tfnl-
vewlty. Further, It Is unfortunate that
our t'oll.g* songs are not taken more
seriously nnd 1 think more Importance should he placed on them. t
would do all In my power to make the
out of town girt* feel that they are a
naceaanry part of our college life. Aa
far as the Women'a Building la concerned, »hf government haa promlaed
ua firicen thouaai,ri dollars on condition ihat we ralae the asm* amount.
To date we have four thouaand two
hundred dollar* and f would use avnry
method to raise tha remainder so that
our dream may materialise as soon as
posslhlp. Flna'ly I would suggest that
every President of tha Woman's Uudir-
Jrad_ate Executive should kaae • Preel-
ertt'a Book,    Thla book  would contain
all the important problems discussed
and activities undertaken, with tho llat
of expenses, eto. It ia my belief that
thia would be of great asalstanoe to
Incoming Presidents.
To the Members of the
Women'a Undergraduate Sooiety:
It is a plaaaure for me to outline In
a general way, the policy I shall advocate If It pleases the members of the
Women'a Undergraduate Sooiety to sleet
me as tholr President.
Regarding Freshettes and their Introduction to University life, I am
strongly In favor of the Senior Fresh*
etto Movement. The Initiation and
Senlor-Freahette Tea should help ln
every way possible to accustom the
Freshettes to their new surroundings,
and should help them become acquainted
with all women students. I would give
my hearty support to plana strengthen*
Ing this movement
reference to Out*of*Town Women
Students, I am In favor of eaoh olass
giving Its annual tea for theae membera. I would advocate a policy which
would benefit theae students by enabling
l hem to meet more of the women students,
An Important and Interesting duty of
thla Sooiety ls to ralae funds for a
Women'a Union Building. I am greatly
In favor of the Annual Women's Undergraduate Bridge and Co-ed's Ball for
thla   purpose.    My   support  would  be
flven to a plan in which all receipts
rom women'a functions suoh as Hi*
Jinks would be added to this fund.
In regards to Hl-JInks, which has be*
come a firmly established event ot tha
women students, 1 am ln favor of conducting It on a more extensive eoale,
as was Initiated this year-—thus aiming
to make it an outstanding women'a
J fully realise the Importance of this
office, entailing as It does a vote on
Counoil. As one of the three women
members on Council, I would endeavor
to Increase the Importance of women's
activities, and would give my careful
consideration to all matters discussed
In Counoil.
I wish to take this opportunity to
thank those who have signed my nomination paper, and tf elected, will work to
the beat of my ability to further the
Interests of the Women's Undergraduate Sooiety.
To Members of
Men's Athletic Association:
I believe the work 1 have done for
your Association and the experience I
have gained on Student's Counoil Justifies me tn again being a candidate for
President of Men's Athletics.
My intimate knowledge of Athletlo
matters, my executive experience, Judgment and Interest will be used on your
The following are a few of the Ideas
that ahould receive consideration next
1. The Big Block Club should aid
Council In defraying the expanses of
athletic awarda.
2. A lively organisation, somewhat
In the nature of a Rooter's Club, ahould
be formed to help increase attendance
at major athletic eventa,
3. Competition for the Governor's
Cup should embrace more aports and
should be carried on throughout the
session—not Juat at the end.
.. To arouse interest and make the
Freshmen feel at one with the University within the flrat few weeks of
the Kail term, a Meld day or traok meet
shoull be held between the Freshman
and the rest of Varaity.
Toura truly,
To the Membera of the
Men's Athletic Association:
As candidate for the position of President of the Men's Athletic Association,
I wish to put before tbe student body
my conception of the duties that such
an  office  will  embrace  next  year.
In the flrst place, the primary task
thi'.I faces the next President of Men's
Athletics Is that of Inducing In the
student body a higher degree of athletic
determination and participation In tha
various athletic events that aro open to
each and every student enrolled. I
feel. In short, that some definite measures should bo adopted and put Into
operation whereby more students may
be attracted to take part In athlotlc
endeavor, and to support to a greater
extent the various athletic activities
on the campus.
■Secondly a better method of financing
athletics could well he adopted. With
more publicity to our gamea, and tha
required stimulant to (itudent interest,
our receipts would be increaaed tremendously. If to thla Is added a closer
co-operation among the numerous club
executives In relation to the Men's Athletic executive, greater efficiency will
evolve and our financial problem, which
Is to-day proving an unwarranted
stumbling block, will be greatly simplified.
In conclusion, I would tike to sum up
my Ideas regarding the general duties
of the office. The power of a vote on
council, should be used with the greatest of discretion. The President of
Men's Athletics ahould remain ever unbiased, and open to constructive criticism. He ahould at all time so co-operate
and serve aa an Intermediary between
conflicting Interests of tho various activities under his Jurisdiction, aa to
beat promote the Interosts of the I'niverslty  ns a  whole.
If you see fit to support me as a
candidate for the Presidency of Men's
Athletics, I promise to carry out tha
duties that this office entails, to the
beat of my ability.
To  the  Membera of  tha
Alma Malar Society:
Am a candidate for tha position of
Secretary of tha Alma Mater Society. I
have found It difficult to formula!, any
definite platform. It seems to m« that
It la not advisable to make aeveral
specific promise* which, at soma later
date, may a.«m unwise, and It la Impossible to predict the policy of next
year'* Council. At the same time tha
Secretary can Indicate the general principles which would guide bar, If elected,
In exerclemg her vote on Council.
I  consider  that   the  marked  student
apathy which haa b.en noticed lately Is
dangerous to the apirit of the University, and all measures whioh would tend
to Increase the Interest of Students In
Student Self-Qovernment would have
my heartiest support. A closer eon-
tact of Counoil and Student Body and
a better spirit of co-operation might
perhaps achieve this end.
The Secretary does not represent any
major University organisation, but Is
elected as a general representative ot
student opinion, and ao I believe that
the paraon In thla poaltlon oould, by
taking a definite Interest in all Issues,
act as a aort of general councillor.
tn regard to the routine duties of
minutes and correspondence, If you elect
me, 1 would try to discharge them conscientiously and to the beat of my ability.
To the Membera of the
Alma Mater Society)
I take pleasure In giving here an
outline of what I ahall try to accomplish on counoil next year tf elected to
the poaltlon of Secretary.
ln tho secretarial work I will do my
heat to be thorough and bualneas-llke,
1 have had tralrfng for thla position
before coming to Varaity.
As for my vote on Council questions.
I will endeavor to use It to the bast
advantages of the Student Body as a
" store de*
..     question and I feel that I an
capable of clear-thinking and of mak
whole.   Thought is required be:    _
elding a question and J feel that t am
ing wtae decisions.
I would like to nee a closer link between the student Body and Counoil.
That would necessarily tend .to quicken
interest In unlveralty affairs among
the students themselves. To help make
thla Interest more marked, I would
keep in personal touoh with the stud"
ents. ^
In closing *l would like to thank those
who nominated me and tor putting their
confidence In me. It I am elected 1
will do my utmost to keep their con-
fldence throughout the year,
To the Members ef the
Alma Mater Sooiety:
In running for the position of Sec
ratary to the Alma Mater Sooiety, it la
impossible for me to outline any definite platform, for the secretary does
not represent any one organisation.
Tha aeoretary has three duties that
She must perform, She must do the
routine work, the taking and typing ot
minutes, and writing of letters. She
rtiuat exercise her vote on Council and,
as one of the three Women Members
on Council, aee that the Women's Rights
are upheld. , .
Aa 1 have worked in secretarial positions: worked on the Arts '30 executive
for three years and the Women'a Athletlo executive for the last two yearn,
I feel I should be able to do the routine work.
My vote on council I ahould only
cast after careful deliberation. The
Secretary is the only member who can
look at all Issues from an Impartial
angle and can vote wtth an unprejudiced
Finally, If you choose to elect me, 1
shall try to forge a closer link between
Council and the women of the University, get their opinions and desires and,
by bringing them before the Council,
make the bonds of Alma Mater stronger.
I feel there ahould be some more definite link between the freshettea and
upper claaa women that would do away
with the sir of reserve and shyness
that forms such a barrier between the
yeara. Aa secretary, I would make it
my duty, even as I will as an individual senior, to make the new girls feel
at home and on intimate terms with
the others.
In closing t ahall merely state that
I shall do my beat to uphold the Ideate
of our Alma Mater Society and aspirations of our University.
Membera   of   the
Alma  Mater Society:
I do not think it Is expedient that
a secretary ahould advance a definite
platform at this time, before the policy
of Ihe incoming Student's Council haa
been formed. The secretarial work Involves two chief duties; the routine,
work and the work as a member of
The former consist*, of recording minutes, filing, and attending to the correspondence. By working ln an ofttce
for some month. I am extremely
familiar with the actual work which
this entails.
The aecond duty, aa one of the three
women members of Council, requires an
extensive knowledge of student affairs.
This I feel I have gained through previous experience on the Literary and
Scientific Executive and In tho Players*
Club aa well as ln Athletics.
In accepting my nomination I fully
realise the responsibilities attached to
the poaltlon of Secretary of the Alma
Mater Society and, If elected, I am prepared to assume th.se as capably aa
possible, always having the Interests of
the Alma Mater Society at heart.
In closing I should like to thank my
supporters, Including those who signed
my nomination.
Youra truly,
To the Membera of the
Alma Mater Society:
In writing to you through the Ubyssey ! am asking once again for your
support In Tuesday's election. I assure
you that I fully realise he duties of the
secretary of the Alma Mater Society,
vet I feel that I am capable of fulfilling them aa you desire, Previous secretarial experience, and that obtained
through thla year's positions as vice-
president of Arts Ml, and a member of
the Women'* I'ndergraduate Society, has
benn   Invaluable.
t am happy to offer you mv services,

fldence In my ability to tdeet me to thla

Membera of the ,    , ^
Men's  Undergraduate  Society:
In my past experience as President
of the Arta Men's Undergraduate Society, which gave me a seat on the executive of the Men'a Undergraduate executive, I would like to see the following program carried out. The Men's
Undergraduate executive controls the finances of every clasa ln the University.
Each clasa budgets through the executive and all bills must be passed by tt
before being payable. Owing to the fact
that under the present aystem unbudget-
ed bills are being preaented, an obvious
loop-hole exists for extravagance and
waste. If elected I Intend to make thia
department financially water-tight.
In connection with my position on the
Students' Council, I would support suoh
froposals as would ensure definite acton being tuken towards reviving a
Unlveralty Hplrtt whioh has fallen oft
In  the laat few years.
If elected I Will support this type ot
program. It Ilea within the power of
each individual atudent to make this
University more than an academy of
learning. What we need ia organisation.
To the members of tha Alma Mater
Society: .
In aollci.ting your support ot my candidacy for the offloe of Junior Member,
lain fully aware of the responsibilities
that a position on Council entails.
The work of the Junior member
brings him Into close contact with students and student organisations; it is,
therefore, a decided advantage that an
aeplrant to thla office ahould poesess
experience in the more important phases
Of atudent activity. This candidate
asks tor your aupport with confidence
In his ability to serve you, having been
actively Interested during two years at
Varaity in athletics, literary activities
and executive work.
It is the particular duty of the Junior member to guide the freshman class
tn the early stag.s of Its Varsity career.
I believe thnt this part of the work
should be conducted very thoroughly in
order to aqualnt the freshimin an quickly as possible with the opportunities
and pitfalls of extra-student activities
at Varsity. I would try then-fore, by
organization, to transform tin- tlrst few-
weeks of the Freshman's I'm vcrnlty life
fro-n a period of uncertainty to one of
assimilation. A vast amount, I believe
can be clone in the tlrst college year in
the  producing  of  a   real   Varsity   spirit.
The N. F. C. IA S., Victoria Invasion,
Mamooks Club and other special duties
of the Junior member would receive my
earnest support and effort.
A statement of policy more definite
than this Is out of the province of the
candidate for thia position. I can really promise, however. If 1 am chosen as
r'our Junior member, lo work consclen-
loualy and whole-heartedly in the best
interests of our Alma Mater and to use
my vote on Council with those same
Interests at heart.
To the Members of the
Alma Mater Society:
Ever ainee the Unlveralty moved out
to Point Orey, those who know say that
there haa been a lamentable lack of
apirit, and those who don't know say
that there might be more. With this
tn view, if elected, I will endeavor to
create more spirit, more class nnd faculty enthusiasm, In order that n. better University apirit may be fostered.
By this I do not necessarily mean a
rib"Id dlsylay of noise and actions, but
A University spirit created through the
medium of lnter-class meets of various
sorts, etc., a spirit that Is present when
students are proud to say they attend
th« IT, H. r„ and proud to say that tln-v
belong to such nnd such a faculty. Hut
enough of this, for 1 could write pages
on  the  subject.
In regard to the specific duties of
Junior Member, these are nol - specially
varied, but require a great deal of lime
end energy. In this rgard, I am willing
to devote mystdf lo Ihe carrying out of
theae duties In such a manner that I
hope  wilt he satisfactory  to all.

Thanking thoso who nominated me
for Junior Member, I leave myself to
the voters.
To the Members of
Men'a Undergraduate Society:
I would like to sincerely thank my
supporters in thu laat election. 1 feel
that no candidate ever had more cause
to be grateful than I have for the hard
work that waa done both In advertising
nnd speaking.
Thia year on Council I have been able
to observe closely the activities of the
Men's Undergraduate Society. From
what I hnve seen 1 believe it lo be good
policy to have all the classes In each
faculty meet their own expenses. Every
faculty at the end of the year ahould
be able to return a small profit to tho
Alma Mater Society from their major
functions, auch as dances, banquets and
At the last meeting of Council lt was
decided to adopt the Business Mnnager
plan as an experiment for next year,
Hlnce the handling of the finances of
class and faculty functions was one of
the very Important reasons for the adoption of the plan lt is necessary that the
President of the .Men's t'ndergrad should
have an intimate knowledge of the details of the plan lu order to give full
cooperation   to   the   business  manager.
ThlH year I gained rather a wide experience In budget making. Thin experience could be of good servile to tin-
classes next year In drawing up tbelr
1 cun certainly promise to turn all the
experience i have gained as .Junior Member and all the energy 1 may possess
Into carrying out the duties of President of the .Hen's I'pdergrad.
Yours slncerly,
To vthe Members of the
Alma Mater Society:
In submitting my policy as treasurer
I must explain that I have taken a leaf

To the Members of the
Alma Mater Society:
In accepting or rejecting my nomination aa treaaurer of tha Alma Mater
Society it might be well that the atudenta should anow the major financial
problems which face the A. M. S. next
In the flrat place there is the gymnasium, a new problem. Financial administration and management of the gymnasium will Involve a knowledge of both
finance   and   athletics.
Secondly, I believe that there ahould
be a closer connection between the administration of Publication Board finances which approximate $9,000 and thoae
of Students' Council.
Thirdly, the administration of athletic
funds which constitutes about twenty-
five per cent, of Society's funds ia a
big problem to be faced every year.
Fourthly, there Is a possibility of a
large grant from the 1). C. Oovernment
for athletic purposes, the distribution
of which will add to tho burden of financial management,
I have been fortunate In ao far aa
the activities with which I have been
connected in the University, namely,
the Publications Board nnd the Men's
Athletic Executive, have given me experience whioh If you elect me, will
prove valuable In dealing with theae
financial problems of the Alma Mater
I ask for your aupport on Tueaday, but
If you see fit to elect one of my opponents I wish him every aucceaa In the
coming year. I alao wish to take (his
opportunity of thanking those supporters who have signed by nomination.

To the Members,
Men's   Undergraduate  Society:
Two major problems face tho students
of the University:    (1) Finance, and (2)
the  elimination   of   the   Indifferent  attitude of a portion of  the student body.
(1) Finance:
As a member of the Finance Committee f feel that our work Is but half
completed, and that a member of the
Committee should be on the Council to
help out  the recommendations.
(2) Closer Contact:
The second problem entails the formulation of a comprehensive policy to roster our traditions. As president of the
M. U. H. I will endeavor to be. more of a
personal force and come In closer contact   with   the   members.
CD  Freshmen:
I will pay more attention to Freshmen.
(al Their education into ou- University Will take the whole or the
tlrst term and not Just tho flrat
I wo weeks,
(b) They will be Impressed with the
necessity of unending every A. M.

I  thank  my supporters  for the confidence  that  they  nave  placed  In me,
Youra  very   truly,
To the Members of the
Alma Mater Society:
It Is my pleasure to fulfill a custom
and  to place  my platform before you.
It Is for the poaltlon of Treaaurer
that I am standing. I realise the Immense amount nf work necessary In
this position; nevertheless, I am willing,
nay, eager, to undertake this honourable
We have, this year, done some serious thinking about the finances. The
Manager System, after much discussion,
has been adopted. I may state that I
am In favour of this system, and to It
I will give all my time and energy.
This system means work, nnd I would
welcome   that   work.
The position of Treasurer, as I see
It. is a (I nn I one. for, as well as being
financial advisor to the Council, he
should lie able lo take part In their
oilier discussions with some knowledge
and Intelligence. In these deliberations,
I shall always try to take an unbiased,
unprejudiced view, always trying to put
Ihe best Interests of the Alma Matei
above   my   own   personal   desires.
There ls one thing, above all, that I
will try to carry through after th'e
finances, and tlint In, the arousing of
more student Interest In student organizations. I will try to find some
menns of putting some "pep" Into our

In any student organization, for any purpose  whatever.
Thanking tbose who nominated me,
I  remain,
To Members of the
Alma Mater Society:
1 wish to take this opportunity of outlining my Intended policy, should the
Alma Mater Society, see fit to elect me
to tho position of Treasurer.
From the beginning I have heen In
favour of the Mnnager System. I
renllsse Its faults, but I nm altogether
In sympathy with the action that Council has taken  In endorsing it.
My policy would be that of a sane
and careful system of financing and expenditure. I agree with the Finance
Coinmlliee thut: "Until a surplus Is
built up, the attitude to finance be not,
'Should we do this.' but rather, 'Can we
afford  tn  iln  tills."
Secondly, I feel that every support
should be given in Hie subsidiary organizations In their methods of budget-
Ing, and my policy would be Ihat of a
general "llghtt-iilng-up" on the present
svstem of budgeting and of financial
I am absolutely In favour of the recommendation advanced Ihat the financial malingers of the various clubs and
societies present a monthly financial
report of the organisation, Also thai
the statement he checked by the Treasurer,  before  li Ih report   la made.
As regards my vote on Council. I
"ould u*te It wilh the greatest deliberation nnd In the best Interests of the
Almti   Mnter   Society.
1 should like tn thank those who have
nominated me, nnd T have accepted the
nomination because I wish to serve the
Society In the rapacity for which I feel
that I am most fitted.

JNoW and again we hear of people who actually
bell .ve they can save on electric light by using only a
fraction of the light they really need to work or read by.
These people go Into hysterics when they discover
they've left tha basement light burning all night. . .
and It never occurs to them that the headache powder
used in allaying the ensuing headache costs them more
than the all-night operation of the basement light.
You can't save much on electric light. Even if you
never touched a light switch you'd not save much—
because electric light doesn't cost much. The average
light bill in Vancouver is only |1.50—leva than a single
evening at the movies would cost you.
The average man spends more on tobacco than on
electric light.
