Great Game Was Played Against;
Cedar Cottage Saturday;
A Varsity Victory
Before a large crowd *of fans Varsity defeated Cedar Cottage, 2-1, in an ,
overtime game at Cambie Street
grounds last Saturday. The Collegians' .fielded a team greatly weakened by the loss of Mosher and McLeod,
and the extra time was played before
the winner of the fracas was determined.
Mosher was on the sick-list and his :
place" Was filled by BucKley. In spite
of the fact that the latter had little
experience in playing in this position
he turned in an extremely creditable
performance, and stopped what looked
to the spectators almost sure goals.
Varsity lost the toss and was forced to play with the sun in their eyes.
In spite of this disadvantage, how-
ever/'they soon forced the going, and
the elongated Cox had his work cut
out to stop a fusillade of hot shots.
The Cottagers' reply was weak and
Buckley easily cleared when called
upon.-to do so. In spite of the hard
work of the Varsity and Cedar Cottage forwards the half ended without
either side scoring.
Shortly after( the change over W.
Cox penetrated the Varsity defense.
From such a short range a goal was
, inevitable and gave the College goalie
no chance.
In   response   to   the   encouragement
of half-a-hundred  Blue and Gold rooters Varsity redoubled their efforts and
it   was   not  long   before   .lock   Lundie
; heat Cox for the equalizer.    The goal
was     an   extremely    pretty    one  and
' brought a tumult of applause from the

U. B. 0. Delegates To Toronto   !
Present Report to Mass j
Meeting |
The first general meeting of the
Student Body for 1923 was held Fri- I
day noon, in the auditorium, when j
Mr. .lack Grant, and Mr. Lloyd Wheeler, two of the delegates from U. B. C.,
presented full details of the Student j
Conference held in Toronto. '
Mr. Wheeler stated that while in I
Toronto the delegates lived at the j
colleges, and were within easy dist-'
ance of tlie Convocation Hall where ;
the meetings were held.
A definite program had been
drawn up previous to the conference,
and a series of excellent addresses
were given by such prominent men
as Sir Robert Falconer, His Excellency. Lord Byng, Dr. Herbert Gray,
Senator Balfour. Dr. H. F. Oliver and
Dr. Roberts. Sir Robert Falconer in
his opening remarks to the 500 delegates, spoke of the diversity of beliefs
and ideals, of the necessity of a unitv
of purpose, of sympathy, of understanding, and of toleration in the
University. Lord Byng expressed his
opinion on the subject of character
in relation to conduct. He laid stress
on the importance of leadership, and
the duty of the university to produce

Brockton Point, next Saturday afternoon, will be the scene of the Varsity McKechnie Cup team's second encounter with the Cowichan Rep. The
first game between these two squads
resulted in a win for the Blue and
Gold by the score of 17—0. Coach
McLachlan, although not making any
over-confident predictions, looks to
his cohorts for another win, and given
any kind of a decent field believes
Varsity can make the score more decisive. The Varsity team is in good
condition and is ready for the battle.
The final work-out of the team will
be held on Thursday; the team will
be without the services of "Gee" Ternan and Penwill, both of whom are
laid up with minor ininries.

History Books Again Subject Of
Address By Worthy Member
of Legislature
Canon Hinchcliffe, M.L.A. for Victoria, who has on several occasions
both in the House and outside of it,
made the charge that history text
books authorized for use in this University are tainted with an anti-British bias, has not yet ceased to make
public his opinions in this regard. On
Tuesday evening, at a meeting of the
Child Welfare Association in the City
Hall, he delivered an address on Educational problems in this Province
and gave over a great part of his
time to a virulent attack on the use
of the text books  in  question.
The Canon, after tracing roughly
the educational system of F-iritish Columbia and mentioning particularly
some of its defects, laid down some
maxims which lie said should govern
the handling of the whole educational
problem. He disagreed in large measure with the idea that the prime purpose of an education was to teach
one how to live, rather than how to
make a living. On the other hand,
for a boy or girl to learn how to make
a living, how to do honest, productive
work, was ihe essential thing. Proceeding, the Canon said that a further
aim of education was to make young
people good citizens of the British
Empire, which stood for the highest
type of ideals, justice and civilization that the world had ever known.
Further eulogies of the Empire evok-

his work for the Student Movement
In his address, Dr. Gray stated that
churches and ministers, and dogmatic
theology were not religion. Religion
is strictly a personal matter, it is the
relation of the individual to God.
There are many people who doubt the
absolute need of religion, but stated
Dr. Gray,—even if these people may
possess everything their hearts desire,
that is, everything in a material
sense, nevertheless they will never
find perfect satisfaction and happiness, without first having God in their
lives. Religion is the source of high
vitality and sustained energv, qualities which are so essential for life's
great tasks.

"Dominance through Exciusivsness"
In answer to the urgent need for
a fund for injured players the University has now instituted one. The
idea originated in 1921 and the proposal was submitted by the Students
Council to the Senate. The Senate
decided that it was 'up' to the Students' Council and it was that body
that finally passed the regulations regarding the fund. The idea is a departure in the realms of sport in Vancouver, and should it prove a success at the University, it will doubtless to taken up by other organized
athletic bodies in the city.
Injuries received while playing for
the University and1 requiring medical
attention, will be payed for from the
fund, subject to the approval of the
Alma Mater Society. According to
the amendment recently passed, If
there is more than $500.00 unallocated
at the end of the session that money
shall forthwith be returned to the
Alma Mater Society. The fund is
drawn from twenty per cent, of the
net receipts of the activities under
the control of the A. M. S.
The University is greatly to be congratulated on the inauguration of this
idea, which will undoubtedly be a
great   success.
The Rugby Football -"!lub, at their
meeting on January 15. decided to
enter a team in the Tisdale Cup series.
It is sincerely to be hoped that they
will be as successful as the McKechnie Cup squad has been up to the
present. The Cup is well worth having, and Varsity is fielding a strong
The Club also went on record as
being in favor of establishing a sinking fund for the erection of a gymnasium at Point Grey. The erection
of such a building would satisfy a
much needed want of the University,
and the Rugby Club is to be congratulated upon the good work which it
has  started.

fans. The suburbanites tried hard to
get in another goal and the whistle
for time found them pressing hard,
but unable to break the tie.
The first overtime period was but
half gone when a scrimmage occurred
in the Cottagers goal mouth, after a
corner. Crute who had played remarkably well all afternoon put the
game on ice for Varsity when he
headed the ball past Cox for the Collegians second goal.
The final period was interesting, but
on account of the dim light, little
good football was served up. The
suburbanites were fast tiring and an
extra goal for the students would not
have been suprising.
The work of A. Cox in goal for
Cedar Cottage, was outstanding. For
Varsity, Cameron played a sterling
game, while the hard working Crute
and the redoubtable Phillips also
played extremely well. The students
deserved their win on the afternoon's
play, and by virtue of it enter the
semi-finals of the Mainland Cup.

Swimming enthusiasts and those
who delight in keen sport will have
an opportunity of seeing some close
contests at the Women's Inter-class
Swimming Meet next Wednesday
afternoon, from 2 to 4 at Chalmer's
Tank. The women of Arts '23, '24, '25,
'26 and the nurses will contest for
points for their respective years towards the Spencer Cup.
By present indications the honors
should be fairly evenly divided between the Freshettes and the Seniors,
whose relay teams especially are reported to be equally matched. The
breast-stroke and back-stroke are the
strongholds of the 2nd and 3rd year
mermaids, although as in the sprints
and plunges, the contest with the
other years is sure to be keen. Competition for the diving, which will
probably include fancy diving, should
offer some surprises; the Freshettes
and Seniors are, however, equally
sanguine  as  regards  the  result.
A record attendance at this meet
would show our appreciation of Mr.
Steedman's article in last Sunday's
Sun, extolling swimming as one of
the most important of university
The student body as a whole will
regret to learn that .Mr. Al Buehaiinan
has resigned his position as Marshal.
Mr. Buchannan held the position
throughout last term, but owing to a
heavy course he is forced to let the
work drop. Rugby and the track
meet will occupy the greater part of
"Buck's" spare time. Nominations
for a new .Marshal will be received
by the Students' Council until Friday
A meeting for the purpose of
organizing a rifle association is
to be held in the Physics Lecture Room on Friday noon. All
those interested in rifle shooting
whether they have had any
practical experience or not are
urged  to  attend.
The Council has lately been doing
very heavy work, the last two meetings being of over three hours' duration. Besides the ordinary topics of
the meetings many minor details must
be settled, such as the assignment of
rooms, permission for dances, etc. The
meeting last Monday night did not
nearly dispose of the Council's business and a good deal had to be left
over to the next meeting.
A general meeting of the student
body was called for this Friday.

Van. Rep. Varsity's remaining games
are all home games and after the Cowichan game Varsity is scheduled to
meet Nanaimo, Victoria, and finally
to bring the season to a close with
the game with Van. Rep. on Feb. 24.
This game with the Van. Rep. will be
the climax of the rugby season, and
a win for Varsity, provided both Vancouver and Varsity have won all their
games in the meantime, will give Varsity the cup. Should Varsity lose then
a draw would result, and another game
would be necessary to decide the leadership.

Hockeyists Defeated By Ex-King
The Varsity Intermediate aggregation of puck artists were turned back
last Friday by the Ex-King George
team by the score of 4-2. Varsity at
one stage in the game was leading
2-0, but could not hold their lead, being overcome by the dazzling com-
ination rushes of their opponents in
the last period. The first two periods
were productive of fair hockey, with
Varsity having perhaps an edge on
the play, and getting the better of
the breaks. Varsity combined well
and went through the King George
defense only to be beaten by Bryson—
the Ex-King George goal tender. McCutcheon, who played a bang-up game
for Varsity, scored after about five
minutes ot play in the first period.
Combination  and  Goal-Play
The second period was featured  by
good    combination     rushes   on     both
sides,   and    by   the    sensational    goal
keeping of Stoodly in the Varsity nets.
Stoodly      played      a      steady      game
throughout and seemed for a time to
have     the     number   of   the     Ex-King
George   forwards.     The   beginning   of
the third period gave no indication of
what   was   to   come.     Varsity   started
well and McCutcheon and McPherson
combined   for  Varsitys'   second   tally.
.McCutcheon  carried  the  puck  up the
left  wing,  drew  out  the  King George
defense and passed to McPherson who
easily beat Bryson with a pretty shot.
With two goals down, Ex-King George
seemed to take on new life, and Russell   Clark  scored   soon   after  from   a
melee   in   front   of   the   Varsity   net.
j A pretty combination rush netted them
another,   and   from   then   on   Varsity
■teamwork    seemed    to go  to    pieces.
Varsity   seemed   unable   to   cope   with
the   combination   of  the   King   George
forwards,  and they were able to bore
, right   in   upon   Stoodly   who   had   no
i earthly   chance   to   save.     After   the
igoal  rampage  was  over  King  George
> emerged victors by a 4-2 score.
■     Team   line-up:    Goal,    Stoodly;    defense,   Newmarch,   Lipsey;   Forwards,
McPherson.     McCutcheon,     Demidoff;
substitutes,   Rowen,   McKinnon.
J.   B.  A.  A.   RETURN
Varsity, through the Athletic Executive, and with tlie sanction of the
Alma Mater has offered the J. B. A. A.
a chance to wipe out the defeat suffered at Varsity's hands, and incidentally to have an enjoyable trip to Vancouver.
The programme arranged for the
Island Athletes follows the line of that
adopted by the Collegians when they
invaded the Capital. Up to the present no reply has been received from
the Island but Doug. Rae, when interviewed yesterday, said he was positive that the James Bay people would
accept the University's invitation.
Arrangements will be made, as soon
as a reply is received, for two Rugby
matches, including the scheduled McKechnie Cup game with Victoria, two
basketball games, and rowing races
for novices and seniors. The hoop
games will be played with Victoria
College or the J. B. A. A., while the
Varsity ladies may try conclusions
with the Victoria  High  School girls.
The Executive has suggested that
the rowing events be conducted on
Saturday morning, followed in the
afternoon by the two Rugby games.
The Basketball games would be played in the evening followed by a dance
in the visitors' honor. Such a programme would be enjoyed by visitors
and hosts alike and it is extremely
probable that several strong teams of
Victorians will invade Vancouver in
the near future.
Good Series of Basketball Games
Last Week
Varsity   Basketball  quintettes   turned  in  a  fine  series  of  games  during
the   past   week,  losing   but  one  game
in four starts.    Varsity lost to Senior
A   game   to   the   Native   Sons   22-18,
after   a   desperate   struggle,   but   the |
ladies team and the two intermediate j
squads won  their games handily.
A  Victory for  Native   Sons
The Senior A game with the Native
Sons was replete with fast and snappy combination play. The Varsity
squad played a hard game throughout,
and at one stage during the proceedings drew even with the Natives, but
they could not hold their fast stepping
opponents. The first half was featured by good combination play and the
erratic and hard-luck shooting of the
varsity forwards. Varsity simply
could not get the breaks and the ball
would roll everywhere but through the
basket. The period ended with Varsity down 11-3. After the interval
Varsity came back with a bang, and
boosted their stock by scoring repeatedly, while holding their opponents
to a few scattered points. However,
Varsity was not able to keep up the
good work, and a comeback by the
Natives later on gave them enough
points to win 22-18. McKenzie replaced Bassett in this frame and
showed up well, working to good effect with Bickell on the forward line.
Lewis and Carlisle on the defense
turned in a good exhibition, while
Bickell on the forward line was too
< losely watched to sh*w his usual
effectiveness. "Buck" Buchanan made
a comeback with the Varsity team,
and played a steady game at centre.
Varsity lined up as follows:—Bassett,
Bickell, McKenzie, Buchanan, Carlisle,
The   Senior   Girls'   Game
The game between the Varsity
Senior Girls and the Bank of Commerce, played at the Normal gym last
Saturday night proved a walkaway
for Varsity, as did the two intermediate games with Normal and the Bank
of Commerce. The Varsity girls were
i far superior in all departments of the
game, and played a dazzling combination game which had their fair
opponents continually baffled. The
Varsity ladies team has been playing
steady Basketball and except for the
reverses suffered in Victoria have won
all their games this year. The team—
! Helen Tatlow, Isobel Russell, Gladys
i Weld, Doris  l.ee,  Isabel  McKinnon.
An   Intermediate  Victory
The University Second Intermediate quintette brought defeat home co
the Normalites to the tune of 50-lu,
in a one-sided exhibition in which the
Normal squad were clearly outclassed, McKenzie led the scoring with
24 points to his credit. Varsity lineup—McKenzie, Gross, Harvey, Boomer, Grauer.
Bank of Commerce Defeated
The Intermediate Firsts had little
difficulty in disposing of the Bank
of Commerce Intermediates. When
the final tally was counted, the score
was 86-14. The Firsts tried hard to
beat the scoring record made by their
brother seconds against the same
team, but failed in their attempt. The
Arkleys starred for Varsity and netted enough points for Varsity to win
two or three ordinary basketball
games. The team—H. Arkley, S.
Arkley,  Henderson, McKay, Choate.

To what extent should the individual  consider  public  opinion?     It is  an
interesting question.    Not  only  that;
its answer is of practical importance.
In the first place our minds must be
I relieved   of   a   huge    misconception—
that   public   opinion   is   always   right.
Valuable   and   desirable   things   have
been     allowed   to     slip   through     our
paralyzed     fingers     because     of    the
i threatening  shadow   of   "what   people
' will     say."     Public     opinion     though
1 amazingly    loud    in    its    pronounce-
I inents,     is     notoriously     weak  in   its
'premises;   when   the   individual   does

he   should   waive   his   convictions,   or
! having   none,    should    fall   into   line,

i that public opinion must be obeyed?
The wording of this question, as it
has been brought up by the recent
meeting of the W. U. S. is : How far
should a university body be influenced by the ideas of the world outside
ite walls? In reference to the decision of that meeting it appears that
the actual merits of the case must
count for more than the hypothetical
ruling which covers it; and the W,
U. S. in deciding in favor of public
opinion took the step which will be
applauded by public opinion—and this
being the end in view, its action is
We might only suggest that perhaps a different end in view .would
have  been more  dignified.
"The spirit of tolerance which prevailed," say the student delegates
who have returned from Toronto, "was
to us the outstanding feature of the
whole Conference."
Tolerance is merely freedom from
bigotry or too great severity in judging of the opinions or beliefs of
others. Tolerance consists in trying
to see the other person's point of
view as well as one's own, in attempting to weigh carefully the evidence on all sides before passing judgment, in not forming an opinion on
grounds of personal bias alone. Tolerant people will almost always see
something of good in the arguments
of others; they will almost invariably
find some common ground upon which
to settle any difference that may arise
between them; they will at least understand one another's viewpoint and
be able to live together peacefully,
even although they cannot agree on
all subjects. Tolerant men and
women .will not rail at Socialists as
traitors to society; they will not accuse all people of means of being
heartless expropriators of the labouring masses; they will not call the
unemployed shiftless andl lazy, the
Bolshevists murderers and thieves,
the Germans everything that is bad,
or all politicians crooks and rascals;
nor will they apply to the University
such terms of opprobrium as "hotbed
of Socialism" or "capitalistic institution." Something of the spirit of tolerance does much to make the most
vexed problem seem simple of solution.
It is good to learn that a representative group of young men and women
from the Universities of Canada
should have been guided in their
deliberations and discussions by such
a broad principle. When they come
to hold positions of leadership and of
responsibility, as they will in years
to come, it will be well for the nation
if they have retained the spirit of tolerance with which they have been
imbued during their early years, as
one of their fundamental guides to
Canon Hinchcliffe's remarks to the
Child Welfare League regarding History text-books do not give any indication that the gentleman has made
any effort to ascertain the true facts
of the case since he first aired the
subject in the Legislature some two
months ago. In his address on Tuesday evening he gave an absolutely
distorted and incorrect view of the
question to a group of worthy and
patriotic citizens, who would naturally attach some importance to the
opinions of one who is not only a
member of the Legislature but also a
dignitary of the Church. Were it not
for the mischief that such a man
might cause and no doubt has caused
his inane and childish utterances
would not be worthy  of notice.
It is futile of course and unnecessary for the Ubyssey to answer his
ridiculous charges in its editorial column. For the students of this University are well aware that they are
not being "Americanized," as the
worthy Canon would have people believe, by the history that they are
taught here. The students have
absolute confidence in the desire for
historical truth and accuracy being the
prime motive that guides the professors of the History department in
their choice of text-books. They well
understand that no book has been
chosen, or would be chosen, which
bears evidence of American bias or
Anti-liritish sentiment.
Canon Hinchcliffe has had adequate
opportunity of informing himself accurately on the matter, yet by failing
to come for his information to the
only men who are able to give it to
him, he has not availed himself of
the opportunity. He has not met
these men openly and given them a
chance to refute his statements. He
has even failed to reply to the latest
invitation,  now  six  weeks  old,  to  ad-
be£ to announce that on or about

Mens' Lit, Hear Keen Argument
At the meeting of the Men's Literary Society last night a larger attendance than usual was recorded. The
debate set for t'ne evening "Resolved
that the Lloyd George Government's
attitude in connection with the Bos-
phorus and Dardanelles was justifiable" was keenly contested. Burton.
Miller and Goodwin ably upheld the
negative while the team from the
Y. M. C. A. met the U. B. C's arguments every inch of the way. Owing
to the lateness of the judges' decision
the result of the debate has been
posted in the main hall.
In a short impromptu address the
president of the society, "Chink" McKay, outlined the programme for the
year and explained many new points
in the Society's policy. An address
of appreciation was then given by Mr.
'Baines of the Y. M. C. A. "       '
dress the students on the matter. We
must conclude that he does not wish
to learn the facts of the case; that
he is unwilling to hear the other side
presented, and that he even fears to
appear before a student audience. On
the other hand he seems to prefer to
present his mischievous and pernicious argument to credulous people
who have no means of hearing all
sides of tlie case. If the Canon were
to fortify himself more with facts
before he speaks we believe that he
would be of more service as a member of the Provincial  Legislature.
We are sure that we express the
feeling of the students when we say
that they are indignant at the aspersions which have been cast upon
the Department of History by Canon
Hinchcliffe and that they are quite
confident that all his charges will
prove groundless if they are properly

I)eai"   Sir:—
I wish to call the attention of your
readers to the ^rave and irreligious attitude of a certain group of .students, as
indicated by their formation of a Devil-
W'o.shipping* Society. Although we understand that their action was merely
prompted by that puerile agnosticism
which be "ieves that spiritual emancipation consists of ridiculing all that is
most sacred we never the less consider
i their levity most inappropriate, indecor-
! ous,   and   irreverent.
It   is   not   to   he   wondered   at.   if  some
of   the   clergymen   who   signed   our   peti-
. tiou   should   wish   to   cancel   their   signatures after learning: that students of the
: I'niversity   actually  abandon   themselves
! to   at    least    nominal    adoration    of    the
Kvil    Principle.      We   do   not   feel,   Dear
ftditor,  that   we  are  overstatng the case.
Where there is smoke, there is generally
i iire.     Humour describes  the   meetings  of
'this   Devil-Worshippers'    Society   as   demoralizing' mental  orgies.     Certainly   the
I atmosphere   of   mystery   with   which   the
I whole   affair   is   surrounded   lends   to   it
| a   most  sinister  aspect

j .Mr. Jack Grant spoke next on the
impressions    received    while    at    the
I conference.
Tolerance,  fairness,  frankness,  and
| a desire to get at the heart of things
j form the keynote of the whole conference.     The   addresses,   educational,
1 and interesting, encouraged free and
sincere discussion—in fact, the greatest appreciation was shown in the
assembly for clear, unbiased expressions of opinion.
Mr. Grant stated that the unanimity
j of views was the occasion of great
surprise  to  him.    One  and  all  seem-
| ed to feel that in order to solv^ the
problems of to-day a new spirit must
! lie developed. All saw the necessity
of banishing prejudice, that is, of understanding and sympathizing with
both sides. Thus the idea of a tolerant spirit had full scope, and a
spirit of goodwill and fraternity was
manifest towards all,—in other
words—"Unity in Diversity."
Mr. Grant was very enthusiastic
about the S. C. M. in the East. As
evidence of its value we have only to
realize that it was responsible for
calling a conference where students
from all parts of the world met, and
agreed to co-operate in bettering the
existing conditions  of humanity.
Miss  Bollert stated  that of all  the
universities sending delegations, none
was   more   faithfully  or  satisfactorily
represented  than U.  B. C., the young-
■ est university.
Italy  Subject  of  Illustrated
Lecture at Women'ss Lit.
With the aid of lantern slides Mrs.
A. F. B. Clark gave a most interesting talk last week on her recent tour
of Italy.
After the long sea-voyage the travellers were delighted with the luxuriant gardens and quaintness of the
rocky Azores. From here they went
on to Lisbon, a city of hills, picturesque streets and colourful houses.
In the Straits of Gibraltar the peculiar appearance of the dark Atlantic
lying above the blue, saltier Mediterranean  was  striking.
Palermo was made the headquarters
of the party, and for several days
most interesting trips were made
through the city itself and the outlying districts. The city, hill encircled, stretches down to the Mediterranean in a luxuriantly vegetated
crescent. From the top of one of
these shrub-covered hills, there is a
most wonderful view, the city, sea,
and   cloudless   sky.
The churches in Sicily are noted
for the wondrous beauty of their
mosaics, but in them, unlike the
northern Gothic cathedrals one feels no
breathless awe. Familiar to all is the
view of the most beautiful city in the
world, stretching along the curve of
the Bay of Naples, overshadowed by
the smoking Vesuvius. Like Palermo
the wide stretching bay is encircled
by hills, but so close to the shore
that the picturesque city runs up thenl
with flight of stairs and narrow twisted
An equally wonderful view was obtained from the Monastery of Car-
maldi As women are not allowed
within the holy precints, Mrs. Clark
had to be content with the view from
a rocky ledge outside the walls.
The road to Sorrento, a marvel of
road making, is carved out of the
red-brown cliff and made a striking
picture contrasted with the deep blue
of the Mediterranean.
Time forced Mrs. Clark to end her
lecture here though Florence and
Rome were just around the corner.
The meeting was extremely enthusiastic and only wished that the talk
could  be  continued.
(Continued from Page 1.)
ed   applause   and   marked   senjtiments
of approval  from  the  audience.
From this the speaker went on to
make specific references to the
American Textbook, Hazen's .Modern
European History, which was formerly prescribed for use in History I classes, stating that it minimized the part
played by Britain and by Canada in
: the Great War and that it over-emphasized tlie part played by the United States. He quoted, from memory,
various extracts to prove his point
and stated: that, although the book
i might be all right for American
j schools, it was not the kind of history
that was wanted in Canada. "We want
our boys and girls to know that Britain went to war in 1914," said the
Canon, "to uphold her sacred pledge
to maintain Belgian neutrality; yet
in this book there is no reference to
Mr. Asquith's statement made in August. 1914, as to the reason we entered the war, while a considerable
amount of space is devoted to President Wilson's utterances on the Fourteen   Points   and   kindred   matters."
At the close of Canon Hinchcliffe's
address the chairman stated that
members of the audience might ask
the speaker questions and a group of
University supporters, including several students, requested permission
to be heard. One gentleman asked
the Canon whether he had endeavoured to obtain accurate information on
the subject from any of the few men
who might be expected to have such
information at hand. To this the
Canon returned an evasive answer,
saying that he had asked the Minister of Education for information and
had been met with a reply which failed to satisfy him that his accusation
were unjust. Several students endeavoured to ask further questions,
but were ruled out of order and the
chairman, who evidently did not wish
to have further discussion, suggested
that a vote of thanks to the speaker
be passed. In presenting the vote of
thanks the chairman apologized to
Canon Hinchcliffe for the disturbance
which had been caused by visitors.
To a delegation of students who met
him after the meeting the Canon expressed his willingness to speak at
the University on the subject of History text books. He mentioned the
two invitations to speak which he had
already received from the Literary
and Scientific Department and said
that he had not replied to the second
one, written on December 4 last, because he considered no reply necessary. He promised definitely to speak
here at an early date, however, and
when Friday, January 26, was suggested said that he would come at
that time if it was at all possible.
The Canon, who is a burly, jovial
appearing man, jokingly asked what
kind of a reception he would get at
the University and, when saying goodnight remarked, "I am opposed to
everything American, you know."

U. S. Holds Largest Meeting
Of Year
"Resolved—that the Women's Undergraduate Society go on record as
being entirely opposed to any smoking by women students on the University premises'" This was the motion brought up by Miss Wilma Mor-
den at last week's general meeting
of the  Women's  Undergrad.
There followed a live and interesting discussion centering about the
two opposing views—(1) that such a
motion was an unwarranted attack on
personal liberty; and (2) that considering the fact that women smoking on
the premises was harmful to the University (on account of the prejudices
of the community), the welfare of the
University should be considered before  that of the individual.
Several women students prominent
in college activities gave their views,
the majority in defence of smoking,
and Miss Anderson called the Vice-
President to the chair while she gave
her opinion. The resolution was
This does not mean that any ruling
has been made prohibiting smoking;
this is beyond the powers of the W.
U. S. It shows, however, that the
women of the University, as a whole,
disapprove of the practice, in view of
public opinion.
What Are You Going To Do
When You Graduate?
The executive of the Women's
"Undergraduate Society is holding for
the first time in this University a
course of lectures that has proved an
annual success in other colleges. The
object of the course is to group together eight or nine short talks of
an eminently practical nature on
some of the professions open to women with university training. These
talks—none of them over thirty minutes in length—are intended to outline the special training necessary for
each profession, its approximate cost,
the demand for women workers in the
field, the remuneration to be expected
and the possibilities of advancement.
The W. U. S. executive has been
fortunate in securing excellent speakers—among them Miss H. G. Stewart
of the Victoria Public Library—and it
now remains with the women of the
University to show that their efforts
have been in-the right direction, and
that the Vocational Conference deserves to become an annual event in
U. B. C.
The Conference will take place on
the afternoons of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, January 30, 31 and
February 1, from 4 to 5:30 in the
auditorium.     The   programme:
January 30th—
1. Social Welfare Work in Industry, Miss M. L. Bollert.
2. Work in Bacteriology and Laboratory Research, Miss Marion
January  31st—
1. Nursing,  Miss  E.  I.  Johns.
2. Y. W. C. A. Work, Miss Helen

The Glamour of Glass
I Complete with a Moral]
They glinted in the rays of the electric globe as she threw back her head,
and my eyes, weary of straining over
the blinding print of a thick French
novel, instinctively fastened upon
them. And then, suddenly, everything
changed before my sight.
I found myself in a strange, old-
fashioned boat on a great, slow-moving, blue tropical river. In the waist
of the craft, ten powerful negroes with
barbaric silver ornaments on their
muscular wrists swayed rhythmically
over their heavy, noiseless oars. As
they rowed they chanted a weird, savage boat-song; words and music were
alike strange to me, but the plaintive
minor cadences were not unpleasing.
And as each bent forward in the light
of the blazing sun, ear-ring and collar and bracelet launched a little shaft
of dazzling radiance towards me.
I turned and faced the canopied
stern of the barge. I gazed into the
shadowy depths beneath the embroidered awning, and at first I could see
nothing. Then the violet dusk cleared away as my eyes became accustomed to the shadows, and I saw Her.
Oh, there were others—slaves, I suppose: I had a vague idea of a moving
fan of peacock feathers, and I heard
a soft voice which could only be that
of a teller of stories. But who could
have given either of these things more
than a passing thought? Great black
eyes that yet seemed to shine in the
gloom—gleam of the royal asp-circlet
on her forehead—a daughter of the
Pharaohs, evidently. She leaned forward, about to speak	
Perhaps I might have understood
her, even if she had spoken Egyptian,
out another voice rang in my ear: —
"How many pages have we got to
do for to-morrow?"

Freshman Class-Party A
Colorful Affair
One of the most enjoyable class parties held in the Auditorium was given
by Arts '26 last Friday evening.
The decorations were novel and artistic. From the lights hung fringed
shades of blue and gold; while the
walls were relieved of their accustomed bareness by gay festoons of the
same colours. On the platform tall
pillars supported coloured lanterns,
and were decked with streamers. Here
Buchanan's versatile orchestra furnished irresistable "jazz." In another
corner of the Auditorium large wicker
chairs, cusnions and rugs made a cosy
spot for the patrons and patronesses,
-Migs Bollert, Mr. and Mrs. Logan, Mrs.
gedgewick and Dr. Sedgewick. A multicoloured glow from an ever-changing
spot light cast a fairy-like glamour
over the gay dancers with their caps
and whistles.
In order to accommodate the large
number present, supper was served in
the Cafeteria during three dances.
One of the most unique features of
the evening was the entertainment
presented by the "Varsity Five," boys
from the University of Montana, who
recently made their appearance at the
Capitol Theatre.
The success of the evening was due
greatly to the work of the executive
and especially to those "former members of '26" who worked so energetically. The committee in charge consisted of R. Thurston, A. King, J.
Faulkner. F. Edgett, E. Nicholson, W.
Patrick, E. Darts, W. Sparks, F. Four-
nier,  and  R.  Palmer.

It is a popular belief in college
circles that when a certain professor
arrives at the pearly portals, he will
point at the nearest cherubim and
say with quiet dignity. "Kindly tell

The monthly publication of the

of the fact that Freud has gone the

It grieves us deeply to be under
tlie obligation of substantiating the
rumor now current that our Dean of
Women cannot enter the American
Army as a private. She has failed
in  the requisite mental  tests.
Dear Editor: Will you kindly tell
us the meaning of life?
All questions on this subject must
be accompanied by a photograph, age
and have you read "E. M. Hull."
That's all there is. There isn't any

announces that the date for "High

to 11 p.m. There will be dancing,
games for those who do not dance, entertainment in the form of skits put
on the eacli year; and prizes not
only for the best costumes but'for the
most successful skit. All the women
of the University are invited—the

With puckered brow and visage grave,
His Angers in his Marcel wave
Entwined with a determined grip
Feet planted firm  and  drawn lip.
"Hot damned dog," the youth exclaimed
"Three courses here I am not named,
One, only one, 1 second-classed
The other two,  just  barely   passed."
His eyes turned crosswise in his head,
They focussed on a spot of red—
"This  cursed  thing I must deplore."
He   ripped   the   sheet   and   then   he
"So help me Henry, I here resolve
Into  my  studies  to dissolve.
I mean to plug, and cram, and grind
Let nothing else  divert my mind;

STUDY shall be my golden rule;
I'll  never go to a picture  show,
To the rugby games    I will not go
I   will not  flirt  in  the corridor,
So  help  me   Henry—NEVERMORE."

Because   I  can't—At   Lester   Court—

But after that I guess I'm done.
It is with a certain amount of satisfaction and pride that the student
body can point to the progress which
is being made at the University site
at Point Grey. The student effort of
last fall is now being rewarded and
although the government's plans do
not include an ambitious building program, at least a modest home is assured the University at its permanent  site.
In all probability the present
"skeleton" will be finished, and a permanent building to house the Library
will be erected. Other buildings will
be of a temporary nature, constructed on permanent foundations, these
to be replaced with the original imposing structures at some future date.
The executive of the Rowing Club
wish to call to the attention of the
University the fact that the J. B. A. A.
crew has been invited over here to
row against Varsity, and such races,
if they come, will take place about
March 3rd.
It is the confident opinion of the U.
B. C. Rowing Club that it is the Alma
Mater's wish to see this sport permanently established here. The Vancouver Rowing Club is keenly interested
and has extended most generously to
college men the privileges of using
V. R. C. equipment and hot showers
for a special fee. although this is an
unconstitutional proceeding with
In a few days Varsity may hope to
see the U. B. C. eight rowed here for
the first time.

men who entertain the idea of rowing

A New Year's gift of $14,000 for
McCiill University is the project that
is under way by the Montreal Branch
of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association. This is not to be a cash
donation to the University itself, but
a subscription of that amount for the
permanent endowment of a three
years' graduate Fellowship in Economics. Trade ami Commerce.. It is
not to be a direct endowment from
the Montreal Branch of the CM.A.,
but an endowment raised by direct
subscriptions   of   its   members.
This Fellowship is being established at the instigation of Professor
Stephen Ueaeock.
From McGill Daily we also notice
that "Pinky" Morrison is playing centre on the McGill Hockey Squad. This
team has played several games with
big Universities in the Eastern
States   and   has   been   very   successful.
