McKechnie Cup Ruggers Display Splendid Form.    Edmonton
Vanquished 20*3.
A "scrummy" well-fought game rowarded all those who saw Varsity's
best English rugby men gain their victory over Alberta at Brockton Point,
Saturday afternoon, In characteristic style, U. 11, C. launched a fast and
clever attack from the start, and their polished form helped them out-score
Edmonton by a 20—3 count. With a flying start, Louden crossed the line
Just as the game had begun and gained Varsity's first try, the Alberta back
bavlng been forced to touch down. Kelly converted this successfully.
Johnny McLean was tackled Immediately after, but wigging out, executed
an excellent side field kick. Edmonton showed some fine play at this point,
but one of Varsity's fast combinations ecllpBed thorn and the students carried
the ball from mid field, Eaton taking it over and making the half time count
8—0 for U. B. C. The attempt at conversion failed. Eaton, Kelly and
Willis distinguished themselves In this sensational run.
The Collegians' backfleld play was superior to that of the Albertans, and
they   showed   much   more   skill   in
handling the ball. Two unfortunate
fumbles on the part of the opponents
partly accounted for a couple of Varsity's tries. The backfleld, however,
did not have much opportunity to
show their talent, as the scrum work
figured mainly throughout the entire
game. Heavy and fast tackling delighted the large audience also.
Probably the neatest play ot the
game was Robson's attempt for a
drop goal In the first period, whicn
missed the post by only about a
cduple ot feet.
Alberta 8ooret Lone Try
The second period showed more
open football, and Alberta was near-
jug Varsity's line,when hauled up for
Sin offside. Jimmy Robson, In moving up to half line later, plunged
through to score the only try for the
Alberta men. "Casey" Casselman
made the finest try ot the afternoon
when .although blocked, he Jumped
Into the air and fell across the line
sttlt holdng firmly to the pigskin.
Kelly loBt the convert on this also.
Shortly after, Louden showed some
quick thinking wheu, picking up the
ball he dashed through the blind
tide and scored Varsity's fourth try.
Whyte, who suffered an injured
ahoulder In the first half, returned
In the second session, and gained
U. B. C.'s last two tries, making the
score an even 20. Casselman, Louden, Eaton and Kelly displayed some
splendid team work, whilst Johnny
McLean was on the job every minute.
Brock and Price are commended for
their good plays also.
The Teams: —
EDMONTON Robson, Sachs, Anderson, Winningchuck, David, Magure,
Coghill, Blntlle, Shirley, Dalton,
Adams, Roes, Pugh, Jardtno, Ptsrring.
U. B. C— White, Price, Kldd, Davidson, Brock, Bain, Barton, McKay,
McLean, Kelly, Casselmau, Willis.
Louden, Eaton, Mclnnes,
SPARES—Forrester, Gordon, Gustaf-
son, Warren.
Judging from the splendid turnout
at this game, Arts '27 evidently have
sufficient prestige to scare the Freshmen Into buying several tickets.
Kenny Stewart was rlghi there with
the yells and every student reported
a good tlmo.
Sophs Enjoy Hike
To Park Pavilion
Saturday, November 7th, marked the
first attempt on the part of Arts '2K
to put on a social function, This look
the shape of a hike to the Stanley
Park Pavilion after the rugby game.
To this haven of Joy hurried all the
members of the class anil also as
many of other years as were fortunate enough to secure tickets. Everybody  was  happy  because of  the  fine
Ladysmith Defeats
Varsity Firsts
Leaving Vancouver at 6 a.m. Saturday morning, twenty-five members
and guests ot the Canadian Rugby
Club visited Seattle, where they wero
the guests of the University of Washington at tho Washlugton-Stanford
football game Saturday afternoon.
The team had a chance to observe
two crack American football squads
in action and were able to learn some
oMSaU) finer points In the gamo.
During the morning, tho team wore
shown around the University buildings, and wero very hospitably treated throughout their stay. Seeing a
great football game with a paid attendance of 40,000 people was, of
course, a new and Interesting experience for most of the Club and they
fully appreciate the privilege so
kindly granted by the University of
Varsity Firsts failed to teach Lady-
smith how the game should be played. In fact, they got a lesson, but
they did not take It sitting down.
To hold the rod shirts to a 4—2 count
on the Ladysmith hovel Is an accomplishment.
New   Players   Star
An encouraging feature was tin:
shewing made hy Varsity's new recruits. Charlie (iihhard, from the
seconds, played well at right half,
Tommy Ilerto at center was in fair
form, and Norm Crees on the wing
was a star. Ladysiuith brass hand
did NOT turn out to welcome the
visitors, but two particularly nice
girls were waiting tor a certain Wilkinson, who consequently narrowly
missed missing the bus.
Varsity won the toss, and the colliers were away at once, scoring In
the opening minutes, but apparently
after the ball had heen out ot play.
Varsity retaliated, Newcombe doing
neat work, but the finishing was
weak. Baker cleared a corner, and
at the other end Butler missed a soft
one. Ladysiuith forced more fruitless corners, and Blair was doing
good work at the other end. Rafter
fouled Gibbard. Wilkinson hit the
post with a header from a corner
Ladysmith Scorea
Mosher saved spectacularly from
close In, and Crees tested Blair with
a good one. Orr picked off a soft
goal from a corner kick, lllalr was
prominent In nullifying the efforts of
Wilkinson and Butler at the other
end, and Mosher was called upon to
make two wonderful stives In nulck
succession.    Ilerto got  In a line shot,
victory  of the  team, and  as a  result I but.   Lndysnilth   tallied   when   Mosher
the   crowd   was   very   peppy.    Supper1
was served  as soon as the crowd ur
rlvtid, and dancing followed from live
to eight.    The music was provided In
a very pleasing and peppy manner by
Peters'   Orchestra.     Later   on   In   the
evening the rugby hoys appeared ami
added  greatly   to  the  merriment   and j the   llnal   stanza,   but   the   play   was
ami  Maker figured each had th«i hall.
Tommy Wilkinson reduced the leeway by connecting with Crees' cross,
and Xewconihe till the bar with a
stinger. The half ended with Varsity
pressing hard.
Varsity   was   not   as   convincing   In

Varsity Junior Debaters
Defeat Victoria College
Morals of Jaiz and Victorian Ages Discussed at Length.
Startling Revelations Made
Tho Clcoros of the U. B. C. emerged victorious over Victoria College In
both the debating contests of Friday evening.
The home debate was held at 8 o'clock in the Auditorium, in the presence
of a small but enthusiastic audience. Mr. Dunn, as chairman, announced
the subject as: "Resolved that the present so-called "Jazz Age" has a higher
moral standard than the Victorian Age. Victoria College took the negative
and the U. B. C. the affirmative.
Mr. McLean of the U. B. C. opened foe case for the affirmative by defining the meaning of the word "morals." He maintained that only a minority
of young people of present age are "jazz crazy." The fact that there are
now organizations such as tho Boy Scouts, C. G. I. T., etc., Indicates that
morula are now higher than they ever were. Discussing dress, he contrasted
the long Victorian gowns and steel bodices with the healthful apparel of to*
day. He compared the Victorian woman who sat by the Are with the athetotic present-day girl. The reticence and hypocrisy of the nineteenth century
were flayed with great vigor. The Victorian gueBt was depicted as showing
his appreciation of his host by becoming Intoxicated and slumbering peacefully under the table. Women of the last century were said to swear both
orally and in writing. In the latter part of hla speech Mr. McLean quoted
authorities that showed the terrible social aud economic conditions ot the
Victorian Age,
Modern Morality Exposed
Mr. Whltely, of Victoria, speaking
for the negative, quoted the Presidents of Yale, Harvard and Princeton as authorities showing the moral
deterioration of the present generation. He condemned the effects of
seltlsh business principles, violation
of the law, and release from all restraint, taking the United states as
his illustration. The spirit rathjyc,
than'any mental delinquency or hard
luck causes lawlessness. Youth has
resolved to take risks. The decline
of religious faith and the breaking-
up of the home were contributing
causes. He described the modern
author with his doctrines of self-expression, free thought and primitive
instinct, and modern art with its tendency townrd depicting tho baser
qualities of the age. The magazines
with their "border line" covers and
modern music/? with their titles
such as "Running Wild," "Footloose," etc. came In for a vigorous
dressing down, Modern dancing, hip
and hand-bag flasks, and "Petting
Parties" were finally luridly placed
before the audience as examples of
modem immorality.
Changes   In   Government
Mr. Denis Murphy of the U. B. C.
was the orator of the evening. He
disputed the suggestion that the
United States with its jazz age represented the modern era. Contempt for law Is due to Its lax administration. The Christian rule of
"Do unto others" was the standard
of morality. The speaker gave a
touching description of the terrible
plight of the workiug people In the
good old days of Queen Victoria, and
traced the growth of their emancipation, "Today," he declared, "We recognize the dignity of human beings
as fellow passengors to the grave."
The changes in governmental systems were traced from the rule of
the privileged classes to modern democracy and the League of Nations.
"Gtt-Rloh-Qulck."  Ideal
Mr. Young, of Victoria Collego, lu
a quiet and well-ordered speech drew
attention to the fact that It was during the Victorian Age that most of
the reforms In social and economic
condKlons took place. Ho compared
some great Victorian papers with the
modern news sheets' flaring headlines of murders, divorces and suicides, Today's papers publish what
their readers wish and thus show
the moral standard of the nation us
a whole. The speaker denounced
lllms with their demoralizing pictures of vice and crime, and passed
on to modem religion, being taken
out on Sundays like a coat. "Jazz,"
he said, "Is the music of tho lowest
savages of darkest Africa." Dealing
with tho modern lack of parental
control he advocated a practical application of Solomon's suggestion,
thu rod. Passing on the Juvenile
crime, ho describes the Loeb and
Leopold case. He deplored the lack
of religion in the schools and the
substitutions of "get-rlch-quick"
In his rebuttal Mr. Mackay, of Victoria College, mentioned the jazz age

Inevitably nt this time, thoughts turn to November 11th, 1918,
when the whole world heard with relief that an armistice had been
signed. The armistice, however, only intensified that silent suffering which many endured: for the majority who had assisted in making this day possible had perished in attaining it. Fathers, husbands
and sons had fallen—men from every walk of life, men of every disposition, united under a common banner and by a common faith, in
a faith which made it their duty to be there.
Today, for a brief time, honour is paid to the memory of the dead.
And for a brief time thoughts turn to that war, already seven years
distant, before they hasten back to daily work and the world. The
world, some say, is not, even the slightest bit better now than it was
before the war. The world, according to others, was dragged into
the war, not in the cause of outraged right, but rather to gratify
political and national jealousies. Still others affirm that those many
blood sacrifices are cold upon the altnrs of a disillusioned world-
That can be as it may- For people on armistic day concern themselves not with the polities of the war, but with the men themselves
who fought.
The problem of building a gymnasium is one which, by all present
appearances, must occupy the attention of students and university
governing bodies alike, before much more time has elapsed.
Last year, when it was known that a gymnasium would not be
included in the Provincial Government's building programme, negotiations were carried on with Ottawa with the result that the Dominion Government offered to contribute a sum in the neighborhood
of $4,000 if an Officers Training Corps of I'JM members was established here. As equipment expenses would first eonie out oi' this stint,
it is apparent that little money would he left for the e-yntnasiuin.
Hut, even if a more substantial o0'"r were made by ihe federal
government, it is not entirely certain that Ihe difficult ies would ever
then be removed. Although a hurriedly culled mass meeting of
students, in March last, raised no dissentient voice to an O. T. ('., it
is quite certain that such unanimity is not the ease now. In fuel
the attitude of ihe bulk of the students towards the military training question is by no means certain, and would depend on the specific
ternu of Ottawa's proposal. If, for instance, the Dominion Government required, as they have at other colleges, that a full enrollment
bo maintained in the corps, even if it were necessary to resort to
conscript ion to do so,the great niapority of V. II. 0, students would,
we feel, consider the price too greal even for a much needed gymnasium-
As an alternative, a gymnasium by private endowment lias been
Bought ,and several members of both faculty and alumni devoted
considerable of their time during the summer in inlerestinif Canadian philanthropists' Owing to the apparent lack of ihe blessed
species in the west, and also owing lo the difficulty of reconciling
university authorities to the proposal, no headway was made.
A campaign lo raise so I a rue a sum as the tk'Jil.Mut) or $.'10,11110 required for an adequate permanent gymnasium being impossible the
last apparent resort, if eovenmientul aid is not al hand soon, is that
of borrowing the money.
in order lo do litis, the Alma Mater Society would be compelled
to incorporate us a limited liability company, whereupon, as student
lenders Imve been assured by several local business men, Ihe money
could he borrowed at a fairly low rale of interest and over long
term repayments,
Incorporation, however, is a step which needs careful consideration. On the surface it appears as a logical business arrangement.
But many, including members of our faculty, who have first hand
knowledge of results obtained at certain universities where incorporation of the student society has taken place, are inclined to dis
approve of the style. At one Canadian College, it appears that the
enterprise, far from resulting in financial embarrassment, proved so
successful that the students, entering the business world as proprietors of a skating rink, made so much money that they proceeded
to buy up the campus—with resulting complications.
In our case the danger, if any, would probably be at the opposite
extreme. A gymnasium in "Western West Point Grey" does not
offer the same means of revenue as a skating rink and, unless other
and more commercial enterprises were inspired by our capital, it is
quite possible that the result of our borrowing would be a hampering, pinching and saving for years to come in order that the debt
might be prepaid.
The whole question is not one that can be settled off hand, and
the Ubyssey believes il is expressing the wishes of many members
of the faculty and governing body and of the Students' Council
when it asks students to commence thinking upon (he matter and to
come forward with their views and, with any suggestions they may
have by which to meet Ihe gymnasium problem,
Last Thursday, President Klinek at a meeting of students,
intimated that there would no longer be restrictions governing the
use of the Library door, Yesterday, students with lunches were allowed to enter the Grill in the logical way. It is reported that the
Stacks are now open to Graduates and Fourth Year Honor Students.

The Distracted
A Miracle Play.
Hcene: The old Auditorium,
Time:  MldnlRht.
A Iouk, gaunl man In a kowii enters He paces quickly up and down In
the moonlight, which falls cold ami
white on his face. Ho parries In one
hand a glass of lime water, and In the
other he has a volume rrom which he
It reading Hhelloy's "Composed on the
Ileach nt Naples." His appearance Is
wild (he It a distracted philosopher),
and he occasionally biles a mouthful
of paper out of tho volume that he Is
reading. Suddenly he places tho glass
and the book on thu floor, and seizing
his hair, startH soliloquizing.
Distracted Philosopher:
"From  out the  bosom of this vasty
While brightly moonlight falls on every wall,
And  Cerberus In Hades howls aloud
At the slow-drifting Stygian ferryman;
So do I hear a voice that chills me
Shakes all my bones and sets my teeth
As deep, and dark, and Binlster, a voice
Seems now belabouring my intellect.
Intelligence, in haste quit thou terrestrial clay!
What, parish cop, come quickly ns you
To bellow bitterly at mighty me:
Nero, thy dog, shall ne'er again partake
Aught more of porridge."
He drinks tho lime water and, biting out a fragment of the glass,
chews It,
Enter, with a creaking noise, two
ghosts carrying between them on a
pole a deatl cat and a bucket containing a white liquid. The philosopher
grasps his knees with both hands, but
stUl they shake.
Distracted Philosopher, swallowing
the glass—"What forms are these? In
haste I must away."
First Ghost (sternly)—"Hold, half-
hoofed horned owl or husky horse."
Second     Ghost     (sharply)—"What,
darest thou menial link of money man,
For only such are al! philosophers,
Wilt thou attempt a flight from us?
'Tls vain."
First Ghost—"Lo, worldly  man, for
knowledge hath net saved
Thy soul, behold what havoc thy mad
Hath wrought.    This cat had Persian
But   Us   green   blood   hath   left   these
shores of day,
Thy  dog hath  killed  if  in a  mad-dog i
way." |
Second t;host--"We here in this old
bucket   have   brought
A   liquid.    Thy  peril  an'  thou drink  It
'Tls beer, vile mortal, only brandied
The ghosts set the bucket on the
floor and dance about the distracted
philosopher. The moonlight shines
through their avvi'ul forms, and as they
dance they clutch at the air. A noise
is heard as of clanking chains, and
the meowing ol a cat seems lo come
from the air. The dead cat stirs and
swallowing the books, jumps into the
air and disappears, riding on the pole.
Paralyzed with fear, the distracted
philosopher seizes the bucket, keeping Ills eyes o:i the hideous ghosts, he
drains the contents. Too lute. He
falls over dead. It was not creamy
beer, but while hot  porridge.

Hints For Lit. Bugt-6
How To Be a Cynic
The littlest editor finished powdering her nose, "Why,'' she asked me,
"were you not made literary editor of
this, our rag?" My reply was brilliant
Mini swift as Ihe thrust of a rapier,
"Because," I said, "arrogHiit mediocrity has ever been esteemed above
modest worth." The littlest editor favoured nie with one of her very bright,
oblique glances. "Don't be cynical,"
she reproved; "Cynicism is the first
retreat of a second-rate mind." 1 refused to be Impressed by her epigram.
An epigram Is worthy only In proportion as It is truthful; your true epigram is never false. In her epigram
she hud Immolated Truth upon the
altar-fire of a spurious Wit; or to put
It baldly, her epigram was no epigram.
All people cannot be eplgrammari-
ans; some clever people may. The littlest editor can't, as I have Just been
at some pains to show; but then "a
rose-bud need not have a mind." Epigrams should be concise, witty, pointed, or sarcastic; It helps If they are
also cryptic, that Is, possess a hidden
meaning. Let us consider a straightforward epigram. "Money is not the
capital of wise men"; this Is made
cryptic by adding "but the garden of
the world is a prison to the penniless."
Simple, is it not? Let's try again:
"An apple a day keeps the doctor
away." To cryptll'y this, merely add
"if It doesn't miss." Shakespeare gives
us our best example of an epigram containing a hidden meaning, in the lines,
"Golden lads and girls all must, As
chimney-sweepers, come to dust."
To be cynical Is somewhat more
dilllcult. Diogenes was, In his day, a
pretty fair cynic. In fact he started
the thing, when still quite young. He
threw a stone at a dog, but, missing
the animal, lilt his mother-in-law;
thereupon he remarked that It wasn't
such a bad shot after all. Greek philosophers smartly observed that If Diogenes had hit the dog, there would
not now be any cynics, for Diogenes
would not then have passed the remark and so set the fashion. Logically
enough, the Greeks called such remarks "kunikos," meaning "dog-like,"
from which we derive "cynical."
Oscar Wilde must be called the
Prince of Cynics because he gave us
a clever definition of his subjects, calling them "men who know the price of
everything and the value of nothing."
Omar Khayyam cynicked a fairly mean
line when he wrote "It Is best, In these
days, to make few friends." Look on
life through the spectacles of the cynic
and correct your mental astigmatism.
Vou liiue believed that a Hiing of beauty is a joy forever; adjust your vision
and learn thai so long as we have
cold eteiini, beauty is only skin deep.
Von thought thai man is the dominant
factor In our world; learn from llyroa
i bat "Ihe world is a bundle of hay,
mankind  are   the asses  who  pull."
Of course, we are young and realize
the emptiness and futility of modern
Hie. Our elders don't, because they
are intellectually arteriosclerotic, and
sneer al our bold and cynical ideas.
We will, they say, learn wisdom and
finally, with the benefit of experience,
we will become good and sane and
solid, even as Babbitt and themselves.
Cynical to tin- last, we admit the truth
and  regret   it.

women Paw that reminds me I need
ten dollars ($10.00) for some books.
Ton will be surprised to hear that I
have got a new girl, she Is French and
1 have decided to take over your Paris
branch when I get through here.
There is a very nice cafe here, Paw,
and some nights 1 go there and have
a light supper and maybe meet some
of the boys nnd we talk about our
work and things like that, It la called
the Belmont, Paw. I must not forget
to tell you about my work, I am in the
Faculty of Arts as you know which
reminds me that there Is an Art's
dance next Friday and as I had to get.
a ticket for It and will need some extra
money you might add a little to my
next allowance Paw.
Last Saturday some of us boys went
to a dance hall to watch the people
and relax from our studies. And what
do you think Paw? While we were
there the police raided some places
nearby, some of them got. in where we
were by mistake and took us to the
hoose-gow Caw and it was Monday
hel'or" we got out en account of us
being sleep) from over study and not
waking up,
Well iis 1 have to call on a girl who
is going  to improve  my  style in certain  studies  I guess  I  can't  tell you
any  more about  my work.

Team Totters Up
To Score Column
Given a proper chance, Varsity
Thirds will bo as good as the best.
Following the reorganization of the
team, the Junior showed splendid
form over the week end, took their
first point und should have fared
even better. Huss Logle, manager,
Stan Millie and Dave Taylor are
showing Just what the boys arc capable of, und the results ure gratifying
On Saturday Christ Church took
both points merely because Varsity
didn't know when they hud won.
After showing complete superiority
lu the first half and leading by a
goal ut the Interval, Varsity slackened
off lor the odd leu minutes early
In the second slair«u, und let two
counters trickle through. Though
they worked hard tiller this momentary lapse, they lucked the punch that
will come with experience, und had to
be content with a glorious failure,
holding the short cud of a 21 score.
An alarming circumstance was that
while the teams were lighting It out
some one was making a systematic
raid of the strip room, and the players of both teams found themselves
relieved of property probably totalling
firty dollars. Clark Park Isn't healthy!
On the holiday In spite of the fact
that Varsity was tired, and that
C. P. R. had hud no contest ou Saturday, the blues literally ran this
highly placed squad ragged In the
second half. No goals were scored,
but If anything the students had the
better chances, though Dave Taylor
saved one sure tally by clearing overhead  on the  very  goul  line.
The new men have earned their
places. Newall at pivot Is a gem, and
Davies always was worth his place
at back. Burgess Is splendid lit the
early part of the games, but seems
to fall off In the later stages.
Fullerton has made the right half
position   his   ov/n.
Varsity has two inside forwards
waiting time till they shall be eligible,
and when they are lucluded, there
won't be a weak spot in the lineup.
Varsity meet C. P. R. In a Cup
game on Saturday. Given proper support these boys should be capable
of almost anything.
Line-up.--Anderson; Legg and Davies; Fullerton, Brown (Sat.), New-
all (Mon.) and Taylor; Burgess, Raid,
Duffell, Ridley and Todd.
Varsity On The Block
"The Lance" believes radical reconstruction of the educational system
from Its very foundations la In order,
with Improvement of the foundations
themselves, first of all—drastic curtailment of curriculum and restriction
of free education to primary essentials, followed up after psychiatric
observation of Junior pupils by secondary development training on the
lines of Individual inclination and aptitude for .success. This paper is inclined to think that the costs of education in British Columbia could advantageously he nit to twenty-five per
cent, of the present burden, with advantage rather than detriment to tho
new generation, the I'nlversity programme especially inviting the pruning knife and shears.
At the same time the salary scale
for high and normal schools could
stand very considerable trimming in
tho public interest; and reorganization materially improve the effectiveness of Education Department machinery. The decrease in the normal
