Tyros Exhibit Histrionics to
Crowds at Theatre
Alumni Accorded Uproarious Welcome by Studenta
Like a crowd of freshmen Humouring to bo ready for u cancelled nluo
o'clock lecture, hundreds of wives, husbands, mothers, futhora, sisters,
brothers, and a few (hundred) grads und under-grads poured Into the auditorium long before the ctirtuln rose Friday night. This great audlonce consisted of all classes of people, who ranged from the oIiisb of Arts '29 right
down to Science '30. The fact that not ono lusult was hurled from this
mass of humanity, and that no ono was restless enough to leave his scat,
even for a moment, goes to show that the Theatre Night programme was a
great success.
The orchestra commenced the entertainment at 7:30 p.m., nnd twenty
minutes later when the curtain rose the audience was ull keyed up with
enthusiasm, wondering what was to follow this splendid Introduction.
The Arts '31 presentation was by no means a disappointment. The
peppy freshman Jazz orchestra almost brought the house down with Its
"Dream of Love and You." But when dreams come true,—anyway "Red
Lips Kiss My Blues Away," received more appluuse thou did the first number,
and many of the grads soemed quite taken with part of the snappy '31 chorus.
The climax, however, came with "Sing Me a Baby Song," and it the orchestra
hadn't stolen a march on the alumni there might have been some vacant seats
in the green ribbon rows. The act closed "At Sundown" in a pretty
scene, with the songsters linked arm tn arm.
"Bluebeard and His Wives" as pre
sented by the Seniors was an educational play. From It the grads learned much about the new university
they had worked so hard to get, and
how this stronghold Is governed.
Incidentally the play presented unflinchingly the probable fate of the
class, Arts '28. After the Introductory
dance was given in tho way that all
seniors dance, John Bluebeard stalked
out on the stage with the keys for his
mansion. These he entrusts to his
mistress Fatinin, for he is off tor n
vacation. Fatima decides to stage a
party during his absence, and of
course must venture Into the forbidden private study. There she is
horrified to find some of the dead
graduates of Arts '28, more ghastly
than usual. AVhen John returns and
discovers the tell-tale blood stains on
the key, he Is about to send hor to
Join the other membera of '28, when
suddenly her cousin appears on the
scene and rescues her from this
horrible fate.
After this act Leslie Brown officially
welcomed the Alumni and read President Kllnck'a letter. In his reply to
"Kla-How-Yah," Sherwood Lett
thanked Leslie Brown and Ross Tolmie for the hard work tliey had dono
in ouler that the Homecoming program should be a success. The grads
then gave a sky-rocket for the under-
The  next  presentation   was  by   the
Musical Society under the direction of i
(A   if.   Williams.     The   "College   Over-I
ture"   started   out   with   "sky-rocket" I
ami   then   vent  on   with  a  medley  in'
popular   Varsity   airs.     This   overture ;
was pleasing to all, excepting: perhaps
the Science men whose great anthem j
was omitted.    After the overture the i
chorus  rendered  "Alma   Mater,"  "In-
vlctua," "Kerry Dance," and "Persian
Market,"   and   the   applauue   showed
how tho efforts of the Musical Society
were appreciated.
Sherwood Lett, on behalf of the
Alumni and Faculty, gave a brief but
Interesting talk, and pointed out how
this U.B.C. Home-coming was directly Interesting approximately 8,000
people. He then told how It was being
celebrated In many parts of the world
by U.B.C. graduates and their friends.
In concluding his speech, Mr. Lett
paid special tribute, and made a presentation to each of tho eight pioneers
of the faculty of tho U.B.C.• Dr. Maclnnes, Professor Logan, Profossor
Robertson, Dr. Henderson, Dr. Davidson, Professor Robinson, Professor
Jordan and Professor Chodat, Pro
lessor Logan, on behalf of these
pioneers accepted the gifts, and commended the spirit of Intimate umlei-
standing which prevails ihroiighoui
thu I'ulvei'sliy.
The next Hem on the program wan
a skit hy Science 'UK, "Our Honour
System." The act was short and
snappy and was presented In the latest Science style. The moral was
obvious: "Never trust a Science man "
Th" science '29 quiii'leUe h o I h
amused mid amazed the audience.
Many have yet to bo convinced that
these red shirts use tooth brushes and
"sweet Ivory soap." We thought It
was soft soap.
Then came the Beauty Contest. The
"Muck" staff deserve groat credit
for their splendid display of beauties.
How did  thoy ever llnd u  beauty In
Monday afternoon ended the pro
gramme for ihe second annual Homecoming, when grads returned to Inspect the new buildings and to revive
again memories of their own "college
days." Forgetting tholr superiority
these ex-vurslly studentH quietly submitted to bo "shown around" by obliging Freshmen.
The main feature of tho afternoon
was the presentation of two totem
poles to the University by tho Alumni
Association, These totem poles hod
been brought from the M usque am
Reserve in Point (Jrey; und were
glveu to the Alumni on condition
that they bo erected on the University
site, which at one time belonged to
this tribe of Indians. Before introducing the speakers, Mr. Sherwood Lett,
president of the Alumni Association,
stressed how the association was able
to obtain those relics.
Tbe poles had been located on the
reserve through tho efforts of two
boy scouts, but It was some time before tlio Indians could ho persuaded
to part with their precious symbols.
Finally they did consent; and through
the generosity of \V. H. Malkin the
Alumni were able to renew the coloring of the totem poles. Mr. Lett also
spoke of the various collections of
Indian roltcs which are found throughout tlie world. Ho expressed the hope
that the giving of these totem poles
to the University would Induce someone to mid to tlie collection, so that
British Columbia might some day
possess one of the best collections of
that kind.
When Chief Tsem-Lano, in warpaint and native costume, rose to
speak, he presented a striking contrast to the modern furnishing of the
Auditorium. His speech, Including
an interpretation of the symbolism of
the totem poles, was delivered In tho
Indian language, but translated into
perfect English for the benefit of the
audience, by Caslmlr Johnny, another member of the Musqueam tribe.
The chief explained that these poles

Arts '3u? How did they withstand
the temptation of giving tho prize to
Mr. Chess? How in the world did
they persuadi; the cafeteria management to "feed up" their child for the
contest? Who persuaded Mr. Fundamentalist to wear a barrel? These
are only a tew of the difficulties that
had to ho overcomo by the promoters.
Mr. Rooters Cluh waa tho winner, but
the other beauties wero not unanimous In abiding oy the judge's decision.
After the curtain went down on this
contest, there was an appeal for a
Medical Faculty to he established al
Ihe I'. II. C. The audience having
Jus! seen what ll saw, gave Its
wholehearted support to the project.
Then came the greatest tragedy of
Hie age, "The Pub as keen by One
Who Has Never Seen It." Ou Ihe
whole this plnv was very true to life.
Al llrsi the audience was Inclined to
condemn Hie active members of the
staff lor Hielr sinful wa.vs and fust
degenerating hahlls. The reason for
this willful degeneration, however,
was revealed when the audience discovered that Ted. Morrison was
Hie guard hm angel  of  the  pub.
Then some of the other trials
of I lie "I'hyssey" staff were presented
and soon the audience began to marvel Hint In tho face of all their worries
the staff could remain so cheerful.

McKechnie Cup Squad Scores
11-0 Win Over Edmonton
Visitors Hold Collegians to 3-0 Score in First Half of Big
Rugby Game
In a knockemdown and drag-em-out affair, tho Miracle Men" walked off
the fluid Saturday victorious, and Edmonton went down to defeat with the
score 11-0 appearing across the blackboard. This was the first appearance
of the McKuchnle Cup Team this year and although some playa did not work
as smoothly us was expected lt speaks well for the aggressiveness and
tackling ability ot the squad when it becomes known that somebody was laid
out about overy live minutes and they were not Varsity men. The weather
was Ideal nnd a crowd of over 2000 was on hand to witness the struggle.
Play commenced promptly at 2:30 when Varsity took the kick-off and
worked well Into Edmonton's shin-plaster area. The scrum was playing
well and following up fast but it was not getting the ball back to the
threes. Edmonton relieved with a long kick, but the U. B. G. aggregation
came right back, and Bill Locke went through, after taking a fast pass
from Richardson, who wai. strutting his stuff in great style. Keliey missed
the convert from a bad angle.
In the next fracas Farrlngton nearly dribbled over but lost the ball in a
smudge ot forwards. Following the drop-out, Locke broke up a fine run by
Drayton and Sachiso of the dark blues, and ran the oval well back into
enemy territory. On a mixed play McLennan placed the pill well out with a
fine kick to touch.   Varsity, who were now working in, rushed the pigskin
right back  but  Kinney relieved  for

It was about thla time that Sparks,
playing a fast game with his usual
mobility, took a boot amidships and
went under for a rest. In the next
play Varsity looked sure for a try,
the threes were playing their position
well but the scrum was not getting
the leather out. Qustafson took a
fast pass from the loose and failed to
go through centre field. In the next
Bcene Ken Noble tried a combination back and caster-oil glide through
two scrums and was knocked for a
row of Russian soup-tureens for his
trouble. Varsity were right on the
lino but half-time went with the score
still 3-0.
In the next chapter Phil Barrett
went through for a disqualified try.
Bud Murray then tried a drop-kick
for a penalty but missed due to an
obstruction in the form of Ree's face,
who was knocked celd for his effort.
Kelly missed the next attempt, and
play continued with Varsity messing
up tho three line of their opponents
and pushed the Blue Shirts into their
own twenty-five. Kelly missed another place from an easy angle.
In a brilliant three-quarter run the
Blue and Gold looked good for a try
but the wing fumbled and Bud Murray
placed a dazzling back-kick over the
heads of the Edmonton boys, who
were packing fast. Sparks followed
and Nvith half a dozen forwards at his
heels dribbled near to the line.
Kinney, luiNvever, sunk a boot into tlie
pig-sl:in and put the pill into touch.
The Edmonton fovwanls were showing
some real aggressiveness and working
hard. The Varsity line could not be
penetrated and Eaton nearly went
over for another counter.
Enton again featured In a fast sprint
when Bill Locko and Jack Richardson took the leather across the
field in great style. However. Kinney
brought the wing-man down in a
heavy tackle. Howard got. his return
when ho floored Souness. Varsity
again fumbled what looked like a safe
egg. In the. next five minutes Varsity
scored twice. "Rod" Barrett went
through centre like a flash.
Noble, the boisterous lad got his
own back when ho went through the
pack for tho next addition. The
whistle blow us Kelly put the oval
botwoou the uprights.
The Varsity pack wore working well
in the melee, getting down on the
leather fast, and rushing the opposition all the time. In the ucrums, however, the hooks wero not nabbing tho
hull ami consequently the threes could
not cash In on their famous aerial
nt lack. The visitors were working a
•i-:\-'i scrum against Varsity's famous
.11 "Hiinboat" Sparks was using his
feel to advantage and was n steady
menace to tho opposition. Although
Noble went to sleep lu a battering
a s s a u I t In tbe first half, he
played his usually knock em down and
leiiveem lay style. "Kid" Wilson,
phtNlng his llrst. gam < on tho premier
team, shouldered his bulk through
iiiuiiy a Hcrum and showed the fans
t nut he knows how to use his
hoot to advantage. Bud Murray revealed the faculty of placing a kick at
any angle or elevation required and
can do It In a hurry. Jack Richardson

Thin week we eonimemoitUe for tlie ninth time the eeHsntion of
one of tho (rrontciit hIi'iiukIcs in history. Nine years ago tho world,
battered and bruim'd put down its 'inns nnd rejoiced Hint the Ntriitfglo
wa* over, ovon if temporarily. Nino yours ago Europe hud pructi-
cally reached tho limit of its endurance of slaughter.
To us who hnve grown up since tho war ended, it is merely an
ugly fairy tale, a rather blurred memory of sad words, sad faces,
which childhood scarcely understood.   To those who lived in it, took
£art in its grim horror, it will remain a memory that has been soared
ito the brain, a thing which makes people doubt civilization, distrust
tho superiority of mankind.
Yet if we are to derive any profit from that experience wo must
keep the memory of it alive. Not the memory of tho fierce hatreds
of the world war, its blind prejudices, its criminal ignorance. We
must remember its awful suffering, its millions of daily tragedies,
its aftermath.
It is probably a fond dream of the incurable idealists to hope
that war can be outlawed forever. There is only one way, however,
in which we can make any appreciable advance towards attaining
that ideal. It is thnt those idealists, those people of education and
tolerance, shall use their influence in inducing in the mass of mankind
that state of mind which makes war impossible. Thnt small handful
with the mental honesty, the freedom from mob dominance which
education brings, must be convinced of the tragedy of war, must rise
above national hatreds and prejudices. It is too much to hope that
the mass of mnnkind will ever roach a stage of sufficient culture to
bring this ideal within our grasp. In the meantime wo must not
neglect the only way we have. Keep alive the horror of the wnr,
its evil, but understand and forget the ignorance and prejudice which
made it possible.
Home-coming Night, as everybody knows, was exceedingly
successful this year. Theatre Night was "better than ever;" the
games came off according to schedule, the Totem Poles were presented, free tea provided and the grads shown over their new homo
by the Freshmen. Those in charge are to be congratulatd for their
efficient management of the events.
There is one problem, however, that has not yet been settled. It
is the arithmetical question of how ninny times 2000 goes into 1200,
or in other words, how can all the students and Alumni attend
Theatre Night in tho Auditorium?
As usual, the Auditorium was packed to overflowing on Friday
night. A great many would-be spectators wore turned away, and
more unfortunately still, a great many of these were Alumni. In
addition, former students who live in the interior of the Province
were unable to reach Vancouver in time for tho performance.
As Theatre Night is perhaps the most enjoyable affair of Homecoming, some arrangement must, lie made to L'ive everyone a ehane.'
to kill himself laiifrliinir at the skits , The iimst reasonable solution
seems to tie that two performances should be I,eld. so thai all stu
deals and Alumni could see the acts in cunilAi'l. Km- example, one
perfnniianee could be reserved for the two lower years and others
who could attend an earlier performance,
Tlio trreat difficulty, however, is to decide upon a suitable time
and date to hold the extra performance. Perhaps a matinee could
be staged on the Friday, but this would not benefit the Alumni from
the interior. On the other hand, a Theatre Night on the Saturday
might interfere with the attendance at the bnskeball game and dance,
while one on he Monday night might he too fate for many of the
visiting Alumni.
On tlie whole, the staging of two performances is the best solution of the present difficulty, even if the time of the extra Theatre
Night is a matter of opinion, We recommend the idea to those students who, perhaps, will sit on next year's Council.
Elsewhere in these columns the attention of students is drawn
to the importance of public health as it concerns the individual.
Every year as eraminations draw near several students break down
as a result of too much "cramming," ti state of affairs which might
easily be prevented by a little* care on the part of the student. To
preserve good health a student should work consistently, have plenty
of fresh air and exercise and above all a good night's rest.
Tt is surprising how few give such matters any consideration.
They drive to University in the morning, stay indoors until afternoon
and then drive honu again, As likely as not these same studenls,
who are no doubt supposed to have some elementary knowledge of
Physics and Miology, think the only way to keep wiitui is to stay in a
room ifi which the windows are llrmh closed. Surely a moment-i
thought would make them realize that class rooms are very well
heated and indeed become oppressively stuffy unless fresh air is
allowed to circulate through them. It would be a very good plan
if, hefore leaving lecture rooms, those people in seats near the
windows, would open them as far ns possible and, if the day were
cold, members of Ihe incoming class could close them again at the
foot at least, before the lecture commenced.
Students with the tendency to think thai the only way lo pass
examinations is to study every spare minute of ifieir lime should
realize that the half hour spent in walking from University to the ear
line would probably do them very much more good than the same
time spent, over books; and also that, not only is their health impaired
by studying till one or two o'clock in the morning but that without
at least eight hours of sleep, the bruin is not getting a fair chance to
perform the work imposed upon it.
With a little care on the part of the students there should be uo
nervous breakdowns either before or after the examinations.
The three main sporting events of the Home-coming programme
afford ample proof to the interested observer that, student support
is forth-coming, in athletic events at any rate, when it is merited.
in the past various athletic organizations have complained of
not receiving enough support and have kept nagging at the student
body to turn out in full and give support to their team. Now it
is perhaps time that, one major sport, namely, soccer, does not,
perhaps, receive the following that its past record merits; but none of
Ihe other three major athletic organizations have ever had any reason
lo complain. On the whole, Htudents can he depended upon to turn
out, in fairly respectable numbers lo any gamo that merits a decent
atlendanee.'and in the majority of cases sports which do not receive
the desired support have themselves to blame.
In literary and debating circles, however, there is a different
story to tell. Time after time the "Ubyssey" reporters, in "writing
up" a meeting where some prominent man spoke, or in reporting
an intercollegiate dehate mentions the fact that "the attendance was
small." Things have come to such a point in reference to this, that
the phrase regarding attendance is now superfluous. Everybody
knows that the attendance will be disappointing.
This should not he the ease. Important debates or lectures
should receive, not necessarily full student support, but at any rate
a respectable turn-out. The student body, it seems, is turning out
almost wholly to athletics and loss to tho literary side of student
affairs, This does not mean that students should transfer their
allegiance from athletics and leave off attendance at games in order
to go to debates. Far from it. But what is wanted is the same
amount of support at games and a little more at debates and lectures.
The attention of the students is directed to a frequently unnoticed, but nevertheless essential part of the "Ubyssey," namely,
the advertisements. We wish to stilTle any delusions that may have
arisen concerning the function of the advertisements; they are not
used simply to fill empty columns of the paper, but they are inserted
for definite reasons, both on the part of tho advertisers and on the
part of the "Ubyssey" itself. Tho advertisers who pay for space in
the paper do so because they consider student patronage beneficial
to their business nnd because they believe that the most direct way
to secure that patronage is to advertise in a paper which is presumably read by every student. The "Ubyssey," like every other paper,
includes advertisements because it is dependent upon the advertising
rates for financial support. The advertisers cannot be expected to
continue to support the paper unless they are in turn supported by
the students, a patronage which they are perfectly justified in
claiming. We ask, therefore, thnt more attention be paid to the
advertisements, and that the students patronise the firms represented
ns much as possible.

Hispanic Society Gives
Books to U. B. C.
During the past summer an extremely interesting and valuable gift has
been received by the Library from
the Hispanic Society of America,
New York, This, as its name Implies,
Is an organization created for the
purpose of preserving and publishing
material concerning all aspects of the
life of Spain immediately preceding
or succoedlng the discovery of
America, and, in addition, to developing Interest by Americans In present-
day Spain, that better understanding
may be established between the
peoples of (he (wo countries.
The Hispanic Society of America
is fortunate In Including In Its membership many men of great wealth.
A number of these, such as thu lute
Plorpont Morgan nnd Mr. Arthur M.
Huntingdon hud—or have—priceless
volumes that It Is (heir pleasure to
make avuilublo to the Society for
purposes of reproduction In facsimile.
In tho gradual declension ot Spain
from (he master of thu world to a
third or fourth class European power,
many unlquo documents, Incunabula,
pictures, medieval charts, and other
treasures coveted of librarians and
collectors have been dispersed and
Bold. For the last fifty years the
Hispanic Society of America has been
active In securing such material, and
when the usually ample funds at Its
disposal were Insufficient for the
purchase, one of the wealthy collectors Included In Its membership
generally stepped In, secured the Item
tor himself, but made It also available
for reproduction and use.
In addition to these advantages, the
Society has associated with It a number ot historians, scholars, and authorities in various arts. The illustrated
monographs on Spanish literature and
the arts written by these men form
a most valuable part of Its publications. Thus the Society's activities
range from reproduction of the rarest
incunabula ln the Alhambra and the
Escurlal, in the treasure houses of
Salamanca and Castile, to compendia,
of modern Information for tho help
of the twentieth century tourist, it
Is doubtful if any society has done
or is doing more to interpret to the
people of one nutlon the past und
present of another than has the
Hispanic Society. The work begun
nigh a century ago by Washington
Irving has been so systematized and
enlarged that lt has made, and is
making, an impressive contribution
alike to scholarship und international
The publications of tho Society ure
In several serlos. Among the most
Interesting ure the reproductions of
ancient atlases und documents of
historical importance. In the former
.should be noted Maiolla's "Map of
the World, 1527" reproduced In facsimile from the unique copy from tho
Blblloteca Ambroslana of Milan. In
this the new discoveries of America
are shown, and the Caribbean and
the northern and eastern coasts of
South America are drawn with reasonable—Indeed remarkable accuracy.
The Interior of Africa, in another
map, Is filled with elephants and
dromedaries and ships and Moorish
castles proof of the then unknown
character of that continent. Th" portfolio of facsimiles of Spanish documents in the Mriiish Museum include
charters sinned by Alphonso, Ferdinand and Isabella, and oilier unique
items connected with the discoveries
of Columbus and his successors. Six
of the volumes presented to the
Library are most interesting reproductions, not merely of the typography, but of the binding of the
originals. They are bound in smooth
cream-coloured vellum, and are
fastened by triple braided ties, Two
volumes of Cervantes "Calatea"
(IBS',) are reproduced, while tho
Cancioiiera (leneral, a collection of
songs compiled lu If,20, Is similar ln
The ineimaluilii include tlie "History
of the Hose of Castile," (Burgos,
14!i!M and there are others, earlier
and later, of equal or even greater
Interest. Then there is a paleographlc
reproduction of the ms. index of the
library at Seville, compiled by Ferdinand Columbus, son of the discoverer, and contains In Its minute chlr-
tigiapby hundreds of annotations In
his own hand.
Among modern works there are several  sumptuous and  richly  Illustrated j
volumes  that   deal   with  Spanish  audi
Moorish art  and architecture.   Among1
slicll   are      portfolios     of     "Decorated j
Wooden   Ceilings   In   Spain"  and   "|{e
jerla   of   the    Spanish    lieiuilssnncr,'
containing scores of pictures of  won
ilerfiil  hammered  Ironwork.    The mis

Students Show Pep
at Advance Meeting
A very peppy pop-meeting was held
on Friday noon last, under the guiding hand of Arts "30. Tho auditorium
was packed and judging from the applause the crowd got their money's
The meeting went off with a bang
lu oilier words. The sophomore yell
leader (Ihe human corkscrew),, led a
few yells. Then the audience was
treated with some musical (?) selections by the Arts "10 orchestra who
gained great applause, Then a twain
of mysterious I'ailerewskles with gigantic red noses, played a duet on the
piano and were called back continually. Much lo the audience's surprise,
a thrilling rugby game was next played on the stage for the purpose N>f
stimulating the Interest In English
Rugby. Tlie audience was somewhat
my stilled when the players appeared in Canadian Rugby regalia antl
commenced to play some mixture between the I wo cixlns. As it was
rumored that the players were soph-

Theatre Night
(Continued from Page 1)
Noxt on the program came the presentation by Arts '29. DoiiIb and Paul
in their "Twlnly Twiddle" Interested
the audience with a good description
of University life as seen by "Vahslty
Bohtle" and "Buhllngton Behtie."
They revealed many facts, some of
which are secrets and some are not.
"Our Ukelela Ladles" sang out lu tho
rain ami showed the audience that It
takes more than rain to stop Arts '29.
Harold King evidentally did not like
tho rain as well as the Ukolele Ladles,
and showed some reluctance In going
behind the curtain after his llrst solo.
The grads are wondorlng if the Ukelo
artists wero still there, for after his
encore he lost no time tn dashing behind the curtain, Then Norma and
Mamie danced "a la Rush;" to be
followed by Elaine and Bill, who sang
the "Rushln' Lullaby."
"Tho Baker's Dozen," as presented
by the Students' Council, was no
larger a dozen than this body ure
wont to give in their budgets to the
vurious clubs. Bill, Les and BUI,
acted very well on the S. S. Alumni,—
much better than they did on the
"Flspa." The Interest of the story
rested on some miscounted children,
and for a time it looked as If tho
Students' Council was going to get
into dilliculties. As usual, however,
they bud made a mistake, so everything ended happily.
The next item on the programme
was Arts Ao: "What It. Is?" "What
Was  II?" "ooOllil!"
The act by tin- Players' Club sort
of intermingled with those of Arts "10
so it NNlis dillicitlt io tell just what
was "Business is Business."
The Thoth Club then put on a skit,
to show how the .Muck Beauty Con
test had developed from the "Judgment, of Paris." lt did not, howovor,
go far enough back to show where
the beauties themselves had developed from.
The Aggie Roundup brought the
program to a close, and hero as In
[ Portland the Aggies demonstrated
j their ability for choosing cattle. It
j was pltii'ul to hear the poor fellows
i "mooing" in  their A Ci ony,
Taking everything into consideration Theatre Nignt was a great success.

Health Department
Established Here
That health is Hie first concern of
any Individual Is a well known fact.
For tills reason studenls should take
advantage of the latest Innovation of
tbe Department of Nursing and
Health. Until further notice, from 10
to 12 each day, In Room 300 Auditorium Building, Mrs. Lucas, a graduate
nurse of (luy's Hospital, London, and
later of tho Saanlch Health Centre,
will be ut liberty to Interview any
students who may wish to consult her
ou mallei's of health.
The aim of this new Health or First
Aid Dcparlniotit Is to slump out communicable disease aud to promote
health ami welfare among the children of Ihe University Hill School and
the students of the University.
Now that It Is known Ihat commu
niciible diseases are transmitted from
person to person and not through the
atmosphere, and also thai bacilli are
particular where they live, It is perfectly possible lo do away with communicable discuses. The work of the
Health Department Is not ono which
Is obvious to the general public. It
never seems peculiar to students that
when one person becomes Infected the
disease Is not transmitted to others.
They do think It marvellous, however,
when two or three serious Illnesses
are nursed back to health. But If lt
were not for the work of prevention
superintended by the Health Department, there would probably be many
more serious epidemics among University Mudonts than there have been.
During the war lt was found that
between seventy and eighty per cent
of the men examined suffered trom
ailments actually traceable to child
diseases which are preventable. When
people realize that, communicable diseases very often leave organic complaints and that lack of care with regard to teeth and tonsils, etc., is the
llrst step towards being a hospital patient, surely they wll do their best to
co-operate with the Health Department for tho improvement of students'
In future any studenls who ore feeling Indisposed should report at Room
Still, Auditorium Building. In one section of Ibis department there Is a rest
room and in another the First Aid
room, the equipment of which Is being
provided by the class of '27. Not all
the noecss-my appliances have been
provided, however, so future graduating classes should remember the
Health Department when discussing
their proposed Valedictory Gifts.
The nurse In charge of the new department has Intimated that she will

Health Classes should the students

Dramatic Monologue
(A Wind Swept Headland
of Ithaca.   Penelope
Stands Alone)
No one had ever taken Little Fritz
for a hero. Ho was live feet four In
height and almost as broad, a small
beamy man, with little lo say. At
rest, on the Prince Rupert, docks, lie
appeared to be as round and as solid
as the mooring piles he leaned against;
under way, lie resembled nothing quite
so much as a barrel rolled on Its end,
Ills nose alone was remarkable. It
was curved upwards, pointed at the
end, and in his rare moments of ex-
elleinenl Ihe tip of It twitched as sensitively as u rabbit's. It was always
red with sunburn, and peeled regularly, even after twenty years on the
halibut banks.
Little Fritz was a good fisherman,
but, truth to tell, he was not very
bright, and found It harder lo save
money ashore than to make It at sea.
Otherwise he would have long ago
attained his modest dream—to be captain of his own boat. The highest
position he had reachod at tho time
of this account was a sort of unotll-
clal first mate on the live-man fishing craft "Thelma."
The "Thelma," loaded lo her guard
with bait, Ice and gear, left town
one February night, all the crew save
Fritz being suitably drunk. There
was no crowd to see them off, the
watchman on the dock being the. only
farewell parly present. So the crew
tumbled aboard, and gave a whoop
fur tlie sleeping town, and tho girls
who were glad they had gone. The
skipper put down the time lu the log,
rolled in his bunk and left the wheel
with little Fritz.
A stiff northwester In ley Straits
held them back, and it was tho fourth
or March when they reached the Port-
lock bunk and shot the tlrst skate of
gear over the stern. The weather was
wet, cold and windy. They had
scarcely a thousand pounds of flsh
In the hold when ll began to blow so
hard they were unable to pick up
their gear.
But. gear is worth money and
Hansen, the skipper, did not Intend to
leave U behind. For two days they
stood by, bucking an endless army ol"
great combers thai marched out of
the bitter norlherii sky. When the
winds blow off Vakulut they blow
as nowhere else on earth. The "Thelma," her engine turning slowly, labored among seas Ihat overtopped
her single mast. The cook tied the
coffee pot to the rail of the galley
stove, crass led Into his bunk and stayed there. Hansen and Little Fritz
look  I urns at  the wheel.
The w iml kept strengthening and

It was a glorious world; a long, narrow margin of glittering Band, with
vivid green palm trees craning their
long, thin necks over it to look into
the lagoon; a blue lagoon full of drifting opalescent shadows; and beyond
a sea, so blue, so burning, and so lacy
that It had even forgotten to beat itself into surf on the purple and pink
reef. The sky was a pale tourquolse
with the sun In the centre and down
In one comer, like a dimple, a speck
of cloud. That speck of cloud was the
downpour coming quietly over the
It enme very suddenly. The little
dimple In the corner of the sky grew
and grew, and Anally the sun disappeared with the tourquolse sky. The
sea heaved restlessly, and a greenish-
grey foam gradually covered It. Every now and then It would give off
hot puffs of wind like Bearing flames,
which made the palm trees quiver agitatedly, and the sand blow in among
their thin brown stems. The lagoon
looked like a piece of expressionless
grey slate and was absolutely still.
Then the rain came; and the sky
seemed to fall into the sea and the
sea to swallow It up. The reef and
the lagoon disappeared into a dark
hissing wall. Then the rain reached
the grove, and the palm trees bent almost double and creaked and groaned
amid the roar and rush of the torrent.
The lagoon hurled Itself on the beach
and the trees Beemed to be in the mid*
die of the lagoon. The rain poured
down the tree-trunks and lay In enormous pools, unable to run away. And
when there seemed to be nothing left
In existence but the continuous wall
of water, the sun came out. The rain
disappeared suddenly ln a cloud of
steam up Into the turquoise sky. The
palm trees shone like glass, and when
they moved showers of drops, like
diamonds, rattled on the ground below. Along the glistening sands lay
a line of myriads of coloured shells
which the sea had left behind. Now
and again a puff of steam came out
from among the palms and brought
with it a spicy smell of warm earth.
When the breeze had blown down all
the diamond drops from the palms
and the pools at their roots had run
down into the lagoon, lt was the same
world again. And the downpour?—it
must have been a dream.
A flask of wine,
A  book of verse,
And thou—
It seems unkind

Urania Consolatrix
I wot not well her blessed name,
Nor bow these things shall be;
But as and unto all the same
For every   wlg.ht Is she.
Her cup of balm for every dole
Runneth abroad the brim;
Nor ever was a lonely soul
Hut she must succour him.
The sun and moon, whose lovely bars
Of  brightness bind  the skies,
She beaieth In her hands; the stars
She hohleth In her eyes.
And all the rest, that I can Bay

the causes of his success, he replied:
"1 owe my remarkable beauty and
splendid figure to two things. First, I
am a Glaxo baby. From my earliest
Infancy until I reached the age of five
years 1 was fed upon Glaxo. Hy this
diet I laid the foundation for the splendid physique which enables me to
take such an outstanding part In athletics I  am  linesman   for  the Third

After my fifth birthday I became an
ardent disciple of Dr. Frank McCoy.
Mvery day I partake of I wo dozen
oranges and on Sunday, In order to
vary my diet, I eat three dozen. This
is the real cause of my perfection.
As to my future life, I shall most
certainly continue to take part In
lleauty Competitions, as I feel It a
duty to the mil Ion to let the people
feast their eyes on my loveliness.
With this In mind. 1 have sent six

To the Editor, Tho UbyHsey.
Dear Madam:
Someone has said, "That he who
can go through college without acquiring a college spirit made a mistake. He should have taken a correspondence course."
One thing college spirit surely is
not, and that Is neglecting to return
found articles to the Bookstore where
the owner might reasonably go to
And the same. I wonder If we realize
what Is Implied whon we see rewards
offered for the return of lost property.
Neither Is college spirit something
handed out to the Freshman whon ho
registers, nor Is lt fostered by meaningless Initiations. We put the
Freshman on the dofenslve and start
on a policy of dissontlon right from
beginning and commit still further
stupidities by our policy of Arts vs.
Science antagonism forgetful of the
fact that we have one Alma Muter In
common. To seo the faceB ot some ot
the old graduates from tho ancient
seats of learning light up at mention
of their Alma Mator is an inspiration.
I hopo to have something to say on
the question of initiation at some
later date but at present I am concerned with other aspects of this
subject of collega spirit.
We are proud ot our stars whether
on the athletic Held or in the Musical
Society, Players Club or other fields
of activity, but we shall never develop
this college spirit so long as the
great majority ot us are forced to be
mere onlookers, let the howlers and
yellers and peppers say as they will.
Unless we come to college as stars
in some particular field we find almost
insuperable difficulty ln getting Into
any of these activities. To quote
from my own experience, last year I
interested myself in swimming until
Coach Norman Cox said he did not
want anyone there who waa not trying out for the team. I took the hint.
For two years I have tried out for tho
Musical Society but without success.
Iu the Players Club they had one
hundred and fifty applicants for
thirty vacancies.
There should be as many grades to
these various activities as will absorb
all who are desirous of participating;
besides, it would form a reservoir
from which to fill vacancies In the
better grades.
Where is our gymnasium? Why
wait for something elaborate? Anything that looks like gym. and anything that will serve as apparatus
would do temporarily, so long aa we
get lt quickly. A drill or dance Instructor would bo a decided acquisition and there is not ono ot us but
what could reap benefit from an Instructor In deportment,
The point I wish to make is this,—
that we must broader our present activities until each one can find his or
her place some where ln our sports
and amusements.
We may Imbibe some college spirit
with our lectures but I would venture
the opinion that It Is as nothing compared to the accumulated memories of
pleasant experiences associated with
our amusements.
Yours sincerely,
Kill lor,   t'byssey
Dear  Madam:

The Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Madam:
In a recent edition of your paper
the matter of a gymnasium was
broached in one of your editorials, it
Ih certainly time that definite action
was taken towards obtaining one.
Such a gymnasium will ultimately
loiiio from tho public whether lt be
from tho government or by public or
private endowment. It takcH time to
bring action from the public on such
u question so 1 would suggest that
our llrst step would be to advertise
our needs to thu public. To tho best
of my knowledge tho gymnasium
problem has not been placed before
the taxpayer ln any manner, hence
our necessity of lotting tho public
know that thu 175U registered studentH
at this university are without gym
There Is a very persistent rumor
that has been abroad on the campus
for two years to the effect that a certain liquor concern offered to build a
Kymnusium for the university but
that this offer was rejected becuuse
the money was purported to be tainted
or because the said gymanslum carry
some specified name. By whom the
offer was supposed to have been made
or by whom lt was refused I do not
know but Is it not ln the Interests of
tho students to have this matter
cleared up. Have you a Horatio
Alger, Jr. hero on your staff who
ml»;lit be Interested In investigating
this and giving us a few facts?
November 7th, 1927.
Kdlior  "Ubyssey,"
Dear Madam:—
May I use these columns to protest
against the prejudice of "Ubyssey"
writers against certain forms of religion.
This Is a university where, above
all tilings, respect for all religions
should prevail, and where, If freedom
of thought Is In existence, uo special
religious body should be singled out
for  cowardly   forms  of  ridicule.
This term, in particular, there
seems to be a systematic campaign
against certain students who hnve
courage enough to form a group to
discuss their religious belief, namely
Fundamentalists have been the butt
of cheap witticisms in the "Ubyssey"
for quite a lime, commencing with the
unspeakable ribaldry in the ' Hellu-
Since then, a very .staunch upholder
of our liilth, who Is a well-known
clergyman In the city, has been Insulted on various occasions by scarcely-veiled reference of the so-called
"wits" of the college paper.
The climax, however, came on
theatre night where the Publications
Hoard presented two of the lowest
and most disgusting "skits" of the
The first was another underhand
attack on the Fundamentalists by the
presentation of a naked man ia a
barrel with the inscription "Mr. Fundamentalist." Per.-onally I did not

Dear Madam.—       :
Permit     nie     to    draw    attention
through   the   columns  of  your  paper
to a practice which Is both unsportsmanlike and  undemocratic.  The Students' Council passed a regulation restricting  the table 011  the north anil
cast   sides  of   the   Cafeteria   I'or  men
alone, the others to be used  by both
men and women.    So far tilings havo
been going on In their old way.   Th"
nun find it just as hard to find places
as   before.     The   women,   moreover,
continue the habit of'reserving chairs.
This brings us to another, still more
undemocratic practice among Ihe students.      Fraternities   *,ind   Sororities,
supposedly secret organizations on the
campus, entirely subordinate to other
student  organizations, succeed during
every lunch hour In forming little isolated groups.   These groups have each
their table or tables at   which  chairs
are   reserved   during   the   whole   hour
and often  lor two hours.    Should any
hapless   student   sit   al   one   of   Undr

"Canadian Night" was held by the
Letters' Club at the home of Mr. R. L.
Reid on Tuesday evening November
1st, when papers were given on Judge
Hallburton of Nova Scotia and Marjorie Plckthall of Toronto. Mr. Hold's
home formed a particularly good setting for a study of Canadian authors,
of whose works the host owns a copy
of practically every edition printed.
During the reading of the paper on
Hallburton, and his Inimitable "Sam
Slick," one of the very clocks of the
period of which he wrote ticked solemnly lu the room, and a fine portrait
of the Judge who wrote of the Novn
Scotia of the early nineteenth century,
smiled on the scone,
Phil Elliott, who gave the paper on
Hallburton, read his paper In a cloar
and deliberate manner, suggestive of
the calculated speech of the men of
whom Hallburton wrote, Although he
mentioned the constant verging on
the monotlnous lu some of his author's work, Mr. Elliott gave his audience a very clear Idea of the strong
conservative flavor of the early Novn
Scotlan village, as derided by the
Btrongly Yankee Sam Slick.
Of a very different nature was the
paper by Leslie Brown, which ln both
tone and subject-matter waa Imaginative and colorful as compared with the
more definite and familiar style and
topic of Judge Hallburton. Mr. Brown
compared the life of Marjorie Plckthall to the blossoming and fading of
a delicate rose, and Illustrated tho
Imaginative delicacy of her work by
quoting several beautiful nnd Interesting passages. That the two papers
were successful was proven by the
amount of Interested and lively discussion which followed the reading of the
two papers.

Totem Presentation

had lasted for three generations, one
of them being built by his grandfather. Pointing to the totem polo on
his right he said that It represented
a man climbing a tree, ln one hand
a knife, In the other a charm. This
charm lt was belioved helped the
Indian In fishing and hunting, giving
him power to conquer his prey.
The other pole had stood for many
years outside a homo built on tho
Musquenm reserve in which celebrations wero held. In ending his address, tho chief spoke of his ancestor,
the great Capllano, who many years
ago owned most of tho land near the
mouth of the Fraser and on Burrard
Inlet Caslmlr Johnny then Introduced to the audience another member of tho tribe, first cousin to chief
Doctor Farrls, secretary of the
Board of Coventors of I). B. C, being
called upon to accept the gift, replied
to the chief in the Indian language.
Then to the audience sho expressed
the hope that tho totem poles would
find a resting place worthy of their
history on the University grounds,
the former home ef the Musquenm
Indians; and that the gift would bo
a symbol "for the Peace, prosperity
and glory of tlie province of Hrltlsh

to be forgotten by the Indian and
the   white  people.
Dr. Kllnck mentioned the fact that
there has been some doubt as to
where the poles should he placed, but
thai a good suggestion had been
made that they be erected at. the entrance to the I'nlversity, on Marine
Drive where they might overlook the
village of the Musquenm 'Indians. In
closing, Dr. Kllnck said that coupled

Late that night  I crept Into bed.
No thought of rising entered my head.
I dreamed a dream of endless sleep
Fiuler a mountain of blankets steep.
But alas! the alarm clock's blatant ring
(Oh!  how I hate the cursed thing)
Reminded me of lectures at  nine,
At which I must be exactly on time,
I washed and dressed In a hazy whirl,
Not even slopping my hair to curl,
As I tried to board a crowded bus
A Science man pushed me aside with
a cuss.
With premonition as to my fate,
I entered the lecture room 10 minutes
The prof,  was young and also stern,
That lateness was human, he'd yet to
He would not hear what  I had to say,
But advised me quietly go away.
For a moment   I  stood there dumbly
While lie at me was so angrily glaring.
Then slowly, slowly, wilh feet of lead
I went back home and so to bed.

News From Oregon
O.A.C. Barometer (P.I.P.) University of Oregon—That the visit to hill

doepest emotion and reaction among
students of the world cruise of the
"university afloat," was emphasized
by Dr. W. W. Youngson, speaker at
convocation yesterday. His experiences on tho world's pioneer educational cruise were told for the students.
Regular classes were held as ln the
ordinary Institution on land. Subjects
of pre-colloglate, collegiate and graduate rating wero offered the 450 students. Fifty faculty members from
institutions In various parts of this
country served. Plays and swimming
afforded diversion between ports of
University of Oregon, Eugene, Ore..
(P.I.P.)—Instead of the work and
worry of selecting an appropriate
homecoming slogan for each year, the
University of Oregon, ln the future,
will have a fixed one, "Home to Honor
Oregon," if a recommendation made
by tho homecoming directorate Is
accepted by the student body.
In the past a cash prize was awarded the coiner of tho winning name but
the committee feels that the supply
Is about exhausted and wishes to see
a standing slogan.

Varsity Victorious in
2 of 3 Games
Grads and undergrads who packed
Normal Gym, to capacity on Saturday
night sure got their money's worth in
entertainment value. Throe basketball games, In two of which Varsity
were victorious, kept them on tholr
toes for nearly three hours, after
which they kept on somoone else's for
two more.
In the first game Varsity's Intermediate A outfit lost out to the Halcyons In a hard fought battle. The
score, 24-18, fairly represents tho play,
as Halcyons tar outnumbered Varstty
in shots on tho basket and played a
better game generally. The Black
and White took tho lead rluht at the
start wilh a coupld of pretty baskets,
and were never overtaken, leading 14-
0 at half-time. Varsity came back a
bit stronger in the second period, but
Halcyons chocked hard and left few
openings. Alec Mitchell, scoring nine
points, was outstanding for Varsity,
with Gavin working hard at guard.
With some practice In shooting under the capable eye of Hugh Orant,
the boys should develop and be right
at the top during the season. Varsity
lined up: Mitchell 9, Dawe 6, Whlto 2,
Dunbar 1, Gavin, Crawford and Held.
In the second game Varsity Senior
A women dlsplayod lots In vanquishing Woodwards, champions of the
Commercial League, to the tune of SB-
IB. The co-ed entry is the snappiest
women's team seen In these parts in
the memory of the oldest grad. They
play an open, fast-passing game, that
would do credit to a good many men's
teams, and show great ability ln boring ln under the basket. Once there,
they don't waste much time putting
the ball where It does the most good.
This type of play does not tend to
develop Individual stars, but rather
stresses team-work and combination,
which Is the aim of the coach, Arnold
In the first half, the Blue and Gold
overwhelmed their opponents, chalking up 26 points to tho Store girls 4.
Jean Whyte, especially, was finding
the hoop regularity, scoring 14 points.
In the next half Woodwards seemed to
get going better, and outscorod tho
Co-eds 11-9, E. Abrams scoring several
spectacular long shots. Just before
time, however, Varsity came back and
making the final score 3B-1B. The
scored 5 points in nulck succession,
team: II. Harris 6, a. Tingley 4, J.
Whyte 16, T. Motion 4, C. Menton 4,
M. Agar 1, M. Lanning, W. Pronlck.
The feature game of the evening
followed, In which Varsity's crack
Senior A squad outshot the Grads 27-
16 In a great struggle. What the Illustrious Alumni lacked In skill they
made up for ln fight and detormlna-
In order to give all those who have
been turning out an opportunity to
play English Rugby, arrangements
hove been made with tho Vancouver
Rugby Union to enter a third team in
the Intermediate Series. This, we behove, stands as a record in University
Athletic circles, since it means that
over seventy-live men are turning out
regularly to play English rugby and
goes a long way to show the popularity of tho Bport at the local "U."
All coaches urgo that players get
out for this afternoon's practise.
Recent games show the betterment in
condition and higher advice Is for all
fellows to keep ln shape, There Is no
reason why Varsity shouldn't cash in
on some of the Intermediate stiver-
wear. Not many years hack this Institution held every Rugby mug ln tho
Chalk talks and general discussions
are held every Thursday noon in
Applied Science 100 and players are
requested to watch the notice boards
for changes ln line-ups.
Varsity's junior soccer team drew
with tho First Church aggregation on
Saturday afternoon with a 1-1 score.
The Blue nnd Gold squad was weakened by tho absence of Jack Mills,
the centre half, Robson nnd Pernlund,
Fortunately there were three spares
out to fill their places, and a team
ion Id be fielded.
ln the first, half Dawe had a rather
quiet time ln goal, and for that reason
switched with McGregor In tho
second stanza. As a forward Dawe
was full of pep and forced Varsity's
only goal with n magnificent header.
The Imckllne was very safe, and McGregor In goal stopped some risky
shots. The half lino was hard-working
throughout the struggle, and the forwards, though not very productive
played good combination.
The lineup wan as follows: Goal,
Dawe; bucks: Mitchell and Stafford;
half line: Sanderson, McKenzie nnd
Price; forwards: Keenleyslde, Wright,
McKellar, McGregor and England.
Edmonton Game

showed real class, having the knack
of  doing  a  double   compound  curve
from any angle in a straight line run.
He   is   always   on   the   leather   and
tackles hard. Bert Tupper, the
tion to show up the youngsters, but mind behind the handles, was direct-

enabled U. B. C. to finish on top. "Battling" Bill Locke was showing the
Varsity got going early aud scored 5! real method of a concrete swerve. The
points before tho old-timers made a
reply, but three pretty baskets In a
row gave them a short lead. For the
rest of the halt it was anybody's
game, the count at half-time being loll for the college, Mayers and Butler
were combining nicely for Varsily,
showing all their last year's skill, and
younger Barrett was always In the
thick of It. Borty considers the acrum
out of class with the passing mob.
The story closes with a different
ending to that of last year's whon the
young novices from West Point Grey
went down before the powerful Rep.
ll-ti.     The   visitors    did   not.   appear
Paulsen hud bin shooting eye right on ' dangerous'  at  any  tine

lace and Alien coinriie formed a very
effective  defense.
Varsity started of wilh a rush
the second stanza. .Mayers and liuller
working together for G counters. The
struggle was becoming very hotly contested and the substitutions were
numerous. The superior condition
and speed of the collegians were he-
ginning to tell, and the Grads had to
work hard to hold them. In the last
few minutes, the old timers broke
away, Uicey Fisher netting a beautiful long shot. MacDonald made
Varsity's last score just as the
whistle blew. For the Grads, Wallace,
Abercromble. and Fisher were outstanding, but the whole team worked
hard. Mayers, Paulson and Butler
were effective for Varsity. The team
as a whole was going fine and displaying some fine combination.
The lineups — Varaity: Butler B,
Paulson 5, Mayers 10, Grant, McElven,
Robinson 1, McDonald 2, Henderson.
(Inula: Wallace 2, Henderson 1,
Abercromble I, Penwlll 2, Gordon,
Fisher 7, King I, Cuniniings.
The gore was then cleared away as"
co-eds with their men came tilling
down from the shies in vast numbers.
Ah soon as the "Arkansas Travellers"
swung Into action, the gym began to
look like a miniature Frosh Reception
Staid old grails at first stood by and
wondered what their Alma Mater was
coming to. but once they caught the
spirit of the occasion, were as frivol-
oun as any freshmen. The alleged
(lance was of the cut-in variety and
many were the dirty looks cast by
Altitun! ns hold freshmen iiilcinplcd to
separate them from sonici charming
co-ed. This state of uffulra continued
for almost two hours. Then peace
was declared and gradn and students
trooped home, tired but happy after a
strenuous day's enjoyment.
The teams lined up as follows:
Varsity     Kelly,   I.ocA ,   Knion,   Tup
per,   Richardson,   GuslaiA-ani,   P.   Burin iratt.    P.    Barratt,    Sparks.    Forrester,

Soilness, Jones, Turner, Rees, Drayton, Jardlne, Lewis and McRne.
The Freshmen came out on the
small end of an N-o score wilh Capllano last Saturday. The boys fought
hard continually but were playing
against a superior team. Special mention should be made of Clarke, North
and   Heuedict.
Vancouver Trounces
Varsity Squad
Vancouver's Big Four Canadian
Rugby entry evened its chances with
thoso of Varsity for winning the
provincial championship, the LIpton
(hip and a trip to the prairies, when
It vanquished the overconfident team
sent ugulnst them hy tho unlveralty
ou Monday. Tho city scored twelve
points on two touches and two deadlines, while tho students were able
to kick once behind the rear lino for
their single point.
The game was exceptionally well
attended and over two hundred
students and alumni turned out to
support their team. Many of these
were witnessing Canadian Rugby for
the first time and were much disappointed, a far belter showing being
expected of Varsity. Little can be
said in excuse for this defeat. Vancouver, being appreciably heavier had
a slight advantage with tho weather
conditions as they were. Varsity's
hacktleld was not able to work lo
advantage along the lines ln which It
cxcells, on a slippery field. Wentworth was unubln to get going and
Varsity consequently made few yards
where many wero expected, The Hue,
heralded as the strongest ln the
league, was far from its usual form.
Time and ugalu Vancouver found a
flaw ln lt and bucked through to
block a kick or tackle one of Varsity's
backs running up with tho ball.
Shields did some good kicking but on
more than ono occasion tlie line
broke before he could get the ball
nil His tackling was also commendable. Outside of his work and
Jlelmer's thirty yard get-away In ihe
last quarter, Varsity did nothing
brilliant. Generally the tackling was
little better than that displayed several games back.
No doubt Vancouver's touch which
came early in tho flrst quarter served
as a damper to Ihe spirits of a team
which in previous games had always
scored the first points. The play, being practically confined to Varsity's
half of the field gave Vancouver the
opportunity to scoro ou kicks and it
it remarkable that thu City's back-
Held were able to score only two
Vancouver's two touch-downs were
scored by Alwiird and Foster. This
teum showed decided Improvements
over their stylo earlier in the season.
Their line stood up very well nnd
their half-backs showed great speed
in picking and ruvmlng up with the
Varsity fumbled to excess and lost
yards many times on offside or forward pass penalties, A week of hard
practise should correct these faults
aud put the team In better stead
when it meets the city In the finals
next week. To have ruined Varsity's
hopes of going through the series
without a defeat is disappointing but
should not be discouraging. A few
days of persistent hard work can
greatly Improve chances of taking the

Ex-King George
Next Saturday afternoon the unbeaten Science bruisers will, in all
probability, clash with tho ex-King
George squad ln the final game of the
Miller Cup Series. This promises to
be a real spectacular, heart-throbbing,
fast, thrilling, death driving tussle,
and we can guarantee the best exhibition of straight football seen in thoso
parts for many seasons. The Miller
Cup has not rested on Varsity sholvos
for many moons and if the boiler-
makers can get a little yelling here
and there and now and then Saturday,
they feel confident that they will bring
the old soup-dish homo where it belongs.
There wero twelve men on last

the rest so that lt Its football you
