Varsity's First Soccer Team
Plays North Shore. Saturday
Game at 2.30 on New Mahon Park—Anderson will Play
Goal—Large Crowd Anticipated.
On Saturday afternoon the first soccer team will Journey to North Vancouver, where It will oppose the North Shore eleven. The game Is scheduled
for 1.80 p.m., and will take place at the new Mahon Park. Although tho
northerners are well up In the league, Varsity hopes to register a win, and if
the forward line can hit its stride, a victory should follow, especially if tbe
team la well-supported.
Anderson will guard the university goal and much Is expected of him
alter his brilliant display last Saturday. Baker and Crute want to give Andersen a rest this Saturday, so watch them keep the ball out ot harm's way!
Shields, Phillips and Robertson hope to keep the ball well up to tho forwards,
go the burden of the play will rest on Warden, Ledingham, Berto, Evans and
Waddington, on whom the university hopes are based. It is rumored that
these forwards are naturally bashful,

attd were so taken aback last Satur
day When they found the grass hockey
oo-eds cheering them—the first organised university support they have had
this season, that they did not know
how to behave. They have, however,
quite recovered from this shyness, and
ln fact, they will be very forward
young men when they play North Vancouver—especially if they receive any
encouragement from the side lines.
From all accounts this stimulus will
be very muoh in evidence next Saturday, and the university will be out in
full force to support their soccer team.
It Is even rumored that a university
band will be in attendance. The crowd
that turns out to see the game will be
well repaid for any enthusiasm, for
It will spend an Ideal Saturday afternoon. The trip across the water to
North Vancouver Is a pleasant change
from the crowded buses and city
trams, aud North Vancouver and Mahon Park, with their attractivo scenery, are themselves well worth visiting. But the climax will come when
the Varsity and North Shore United
lock horns in deadly combat
All members ot the team are requested to leave early and avoid the
rush as It is necessary for the game to
start on time. Manager Liersch, who
has himself visited North Vancouver
at odd times, and who takes a general
Interest ln this growing metropolis,
when interviewed yesterday, remarked, "I expect our team with a
great cry of victory to pursue the
United from the sea coast which they
border to their outlying forests and
mountains. I am full of confidence
and have given tho team strict orders."
The manager would be pleased to meet
all players at. the ferry wharf lu time
to catch the 1.20 barge.
Those of the student body, who are
not enticed away by the rabid promises of the Arts dance, will have the
privilege of hearing the Annual Freshman-Sophomore Debate with Victoria
College this evening. The debate will
be held ln the Auditorium at 8.15
o'clock with no admission charge. The
subject of debate ia, "Resolved that
nationalisation of all railways would
be in the best Interests of Canada."
Messrs. P. Murphy and L. Laine, the
home debaters, are quite prepared to
prove the resolution, .vhile Messrs. N.
Gold and J. O'Hagan are sure they will
demonstrate the absolute fallacy of the
subject to Victoria College. The personnel of the Victoria College representation Is not definitely known, but
it Is rumored that It will he the same
team that represented Victoria at
home last year. The Varaity debaters tonight arc both capable speakers,
so a good debate may well be expected.
A good turn out of studentH, especially
Freshmen and Sophomores, would be
but fitting to recelvo tbe Victoria
Th. Imperial Debate, scheduled
for December », has been can-
oellsd until further notloe, according to announcement made Thursday by Bill Taylor, debates manager.

Council Abolishes
Frosh Ornaments
Council will Alao Abolish Horse
The Students' Council decided at a
meeting Monday night, that the Freshmen Regulations, including the wearing of the green, should be rescinded
on November 17. At the same time
the Council expressed its regret at
seeing the Freshmen lose their distinguishing mark.
The constitution of the Women's
Athletic Society was read and referred
to the members for amendment. Exception was taken to the clause dealing with the awarding of big block
sweaters to girls in their sophomore
year. Since this is such a high award
the council feels it should be made
only to those people who Intend to
graduate from the University, and
since students leave at tho end of their
second year, the idea was advanced
that some other distinguishing sweater
should bo .given girls who win their
big block letter in their first or second
year. The white sweater with the letter would be provided in their Junior
year. It was decided to dispose of
the Council's horse which at present,
has Its headquarters peacefully at
Lulu Island.
One hundred dollars per year was
voted to the maintenance of The Play-
era' Club Distribution Bureau. An ap-
poal for some minor stage equipment
for the Christmas' performances was
granted  the  Players' Club.
Sophs Defeat Frosh
In Women's Debate
The first women's interclass debate
this year took place Wednesday afternoon in Ails '100 between (lie first
and second year. The subject of I lie
debate was "Resolved that the Wurman system of Education should be
adopted In Canadian Universities."
The alllrmatlve was taken by the
Sophomore team, Miss O'Neill and
Miss Helen Smith, the negative by
the Freshette team, Miss Margaret
Burton and Mlas Ethel McDowell.
The Judges, Miss Portsmouth, Mr.
Soward and Doctor Walker gave tho
decision to the alllrrnntive.
In criticising the debate, the Judges
said that It waa much superior to
ninny previous lnter-class debates,
that it was characterized by much
vigour and much good rebuttal, and
that the speakers would undoubtedly
prove good material for forthcoming
International debates.
There will he a meeting of the Women's I'ndergriiduate Society on Tues-
day, November 23rd., tn Arts 100. The
meeting had to be postponed thin week
because there waa not a quorum. The
formation of a Women's HootorV Club
actively concerns every woman In the
University, und a large altondanco Is
requested, it Ih very Important, so
everybody out.

Albert "Dal" Orauer, Arts '25, at

California, has been awarded the 1927
Rhodes' scholarship for the Province
of British Columbia.
Dai's career in this college was
meteoric. A first-class honor Btudent
In economics, president of the Alma
Mater Society, star In the basketball
teum that won Its way Into the Dominion Championships, member ot the
students' campaign committee as a
sophomore, and president of the L.S.D.
as a Junior—these are only some of
the highlights ot Dal'B achievements
in his undergraduate days. Besides
this he is a capable platform speaker
and was prominent In International
debates. The committee's selection of
Dal ia certainly most, popular and fitting.
Dal, a keen student, a good athlete
and orator, and an admirable personality, Is fitted to get the most from
three years' study at Oxford. The
Ubyssey, In behalf of the student body,
takes this opportunity to wish Dal
very best ot luck, and looks forward
confidently to a great career for him

Women's Education
Theme of Talk by
Miss Levesoa
The Women Students of the University have been especially privileged this year in hearing several distinguished speakers. One of the most
Interesting of these wad Mlas Leveson,
of dirt on College, Cambridge who
spoke, Tuesdoy noon In Ap. Sc. 100.
Mlsfi Leveson dealt with (1) Cambridge College, (2) Higher education
for women.
In the first case Miss Leveson drew
a vivid picture of the famous University. Several slides of the most
prominent buildings were shown, in
which the remarkable contrast between Cambridge and U. B. C. was
In spite of the fact that to us Cambridge seems to have many more
advantages, Miss Loveson assured the
women of U. B. C. that they were in
reality, in a much better position than
■the women of Cambridge,
Early ln the 10th Century seven
women began their struggle for independence. A few condescending
lecturers were persuaded to come once
or twice a week to their college.
Some kind hearted prof, procured
their flrst papers from the men's
exam, room and sat with them in a
hotel while they wrote.
This was the boglnnlng of Oirton
College, now the most famous ot Its
kind in England. The women work
under the same conditions as the
men. Their exams, are no easier, ln
fact, it is the proud boast of Oirton
women that none of their members
has ever taken a pass course. They
all work for the honours degree which
Is considered one of the stiffest
exams., as no student is allowed to
repeat the year.
Even now the men strongly disapprove of a Women's College at
Cambridge, and do little to help them
ln their struggle towards higher education. It Is only recently that even
a titular degree has been granted to a
Players' Club to

This Is a peppy comedy, written nf

Thompson), and has only the advice
of two young and frivolous things,
(Bessie Hurst and BUI Buckingham)

Big Program of Athletic and Social Events Already Arranged
The annual trip to Victoria vlll he
run off on January 7, S and i) of next
term, according to Pres. Tanny Butler
of the Men's Athletic Association.
Tentative arrangements are under way
for the various sports events, and the
programme is a very good one Indeed.
It is possible that a new event will
be added to the calendar in the shape
of a four-man golf loam, to hold a
(•imminent with Victoria College or
some one of tho island clubs. Final
arrangements have not been made,
however, and It Is possible that the
scheme will fall through.
The other clubs which will probably
compete In tho island city are English
rugby, soccer, men's and women's
swimming, men's and women's basket-
hall, men's and women's badminton,
nnd women's grass hockey. Besides
these Varsity may compete with a
four-man team ln the Colonist Road
Race, and with some Intermediate
loam In Ico hockey.
The big event of the trip will be the
McKechnie Cup Rugby game against
Victoria Rep. Varsity has not met this
learn yet this season and much is expected of her when she tangles with
the Victoria squad.
The Inn rniedinlo Rep, team will
play either Victoria Rep. or Victoria
College. With the support of such a
hand of etithuslafitic, rooters as will accompany them to Victoria, the teams
lionld stmt their stuff to perfection.
Soccer also will be send lug two
learns; tho llrst loam will play Vic
loila;   Die second, Victoria College.
Throe basketball teams will Journey
lo the Island; the Senior B, Intcrniedi-
ate A and B tennis will be playing.
Their opponents have not been decided
on yet.
If the arrangements are completed
for sending a track tuam to run In the
Colonist   Road   Race,  this  should   ba
oiie of the best events on the sports
program. Tills is one field where
I'.B.C. is on equal grounds with her
opponents. Perhaps another trophy
will tako Its place in the new case In
the Library.
Both the swimming and badminton
clubs will be represented by men's and
women's teams. The opponents which
they will meet have not been settled.
Besides this the two women's basketball teams will follow the birds to
Victoria. A grass hockey team will
go too, but who these teams will play
in not yet decided. All arrangements
for all events are only tentative as yet
The men's ice hockey team will play
if some intermediate competition can
lie run to earth.
This programme, calling as It does,
lor fifteen events, and supported, as
It will be, by numerous social events,
promises a wonderful trip when Varsity is the guest of Victoria College.
The management of tho Grill wishes
to make a final appeal to the students
with regard to ths removal of dirty
dishes. All dishes must be taken te
the appointed place before tho people
using them leave tho Grill. Remombor,

Aa far ns wo know, no precise cHsnyist or on raptured lyrist linn
ever pictured the Ideal, or even the fairly good common room. It is
Very dishearteninp; for us flint noliody has done ho, because to be
able to quote an authority, in for us the supreme end of editorials.
Juat why we cannot utilize any fine periods to assist our own com-
monplace is apparent—our themo ia one suited neither to epic poetry
tior to romantic, neither to comedy nor to tragedy. Hence, it comes
Within that vast way untrodden by the artist which is the domain
proper of sleep. Yet despite absence of authority, we propose boldly
to enquire into tbe nature of the hitherto unexamined subject, tbe
common room. We will do this first by describing the fairly Rood
common room, second by sketching our own common room.
In our opinion a common room should be a clean and perfectly
healthy room for nil students, a room in which order, not a, b, c order*
but decent order, rather than chaos exists, rather a rest room than a
playground. It should, too, be well-fitted out with cbnirs, not. stiff,
ligiy wooden images, but comfortable chairs. There should also bo
tables at which students, if they wish to, may study, with many
requisite appurtenances, such as giant ash trays. Discipline in the
common room should not mean silence; but boisterous horseplay
should not be deemed proper except nt special times—for example,
the noon hour, and whenever tho Ubyssey is distributed.
But contrasting what a common room should bo with the Arts
common room, the common room, which is most used, we are shocked
to find several serious discrepancies. The Arts common room is not
clean, it is decidedly dirty; not healthy, it is foully unhealthy, oven
lacking necessary disinfection and ventilation. It is a dusty, crowded,
noisy place where the senior fears for his gown and the freshman for
ins green tie. And tbe ugly chairs hurt your eyes even more than
they do your back; and the tables nre useless because there are none.
Of course, the University is a growing institution; of course the
buildings are semi-permanent; of course what a common room should
be is a matter of opinion.
"We believe, nevertheless, that most of the students prefer a clean
■Hack to a house of many windows; we believe also that they prefer a
healthy, well-ventilated room to nn intolerably disgusting place. We
further take leave to say that although of all rooms, the Arts lower
common room is totally lacking in plan, it might in nil its futility be
decently kept. We hope that, the gods being propitious, something
so elementary may soon be done that the common room will become a
respectable university concourse.
We note with  pleasure that the Htudei
meeting, finally yawned  itself into sufficient

Dear Sir
Allow us to take up some of your
valuable space to reply to a letter
which appeared in your last Issue
over tho name of one Dalton Allan,
president of the Swimming Club
To begin with, we should like to
thank Mr. Allan very heartily for his
consideration of tho Science men In
procuring evening swimming periods.
We feel mure (hat It was with special
regard to our convenience that these
periods were chosen, and wish hhn
lo know that his kindness does not
.0 unappreciated.
Hud It not been for bin Hlgnuture
nt the bottom of the letter, we Hhould
never have believed that Mr. Allan
would have written such a letter. A
Heiilor, and president of the swimming club Hhuulerlng and maligning
the Student Ilody in general and a
cIiihh in particular Is a thing un-
bcllevcttblo! And all because the
Swimming Club Is not receiving the
support he thinks It ahould! We
were under the Impression that
senior* were supposed to be examples to the lower years. Examples
of what?   Wo wonder I
Now we "have a bone to pick"
with Mr. Allan. He Hays "Science 'i»0
have ilone a lot of roaring and shouting but Hhow me where they have
come out and done something for
their college." Righto! Did any
class turn out to the Freshman Initiation one whit better than did
Science '30? Did not we, with our
sweatshirts, snake-dunclng, "roaring
ami shouting" engender something
akin to tho so-called "college spirit?"
We ask you!
Despite the fact that our timetable Includes some thirty-five hours
of lectures and laboratories per week
about half of the class partakes in
some of the various student activities. Five ln our class play Rugby,
nnd four play soccer. Seven men
competed ln the Tennis Tournament.
Fifteen will turn out for track, and
eight for Ice hockey. Four men are
taking up rowing. The Swimming,
Canadian Rugby, Badminton, Grass
Hockey, and Outdoors' Club each
have a man from Science '30. This
leaves basketball the only sport ln
which our class Is not. represented.
In activities other than athletics we
are well represented. We have four
men In the Students' Parliament,
three In the Musical Society, nnd one
In the Thoth Club. There Is a member of our class on the executives of
each of these clubs, tho Swimming
Club, the Canadian Rugby Club, and
the Ice Hockey Club, and also on the
staff of the "Ubyssey." The University Yell Leader Is also a member of
our class.
This of course all goes to show
Ihat we have not "come out and done
something" for the college.
Mr. Allan next states that, our
class "presumably belonged" to Ails
"2!). At a recent class meeting It was
lound that only about one-half of our
the last of the Freshman regulations.    At the tune ol their institution, i ,.|ass were Freshmen last vear.    The
His usual box of Sapp Chocolates was
missing, and so what might have been s perfectly fine evsnlng was ruined.

Is    Council,  at  its  last
wakefulness to  rescind
these rules were the object of our well-considered, and c<mse<|iint!y
adverse, criticism; and while we are pleased to see the end of them,
it is painful to realize that the Council has taken almost two months
to recognize (if, indeed it lias yet recognized), the obvious puerility
of their entire programme of Freshman initiation.
Some hope, however, there is in the fact that, when awake, the
Council has made the correct decision; but such hope as there is,
points only to the future. This present Council has made its mistake;
but their mid-term realization of the fact should constitute a warning
to the governing body of next, year that a similar set of rules will
tend only to the same futility of purpose.
The foregoing remarks aro (we anticipate the parrot-cry) in the
nature of destructive and unkind criticism. But the surgeon's counsel
is often good; and having advocated the amputation of the offending
member, we go on to provide a substitute more suited in our opinion,
to the special purpose of initiation. That purpose is, we believe, to
introduce the Freshman to his academic life, its responsibilities, and
its privileges; and if, may he achieved by means of carefully planned
functions where the newcomer may meet his seniors as men, and all
may display something approximntiuir the dignity of men. The
details of such functions will demand some careful preparation; and
therein, the powers that are to be should, when (lie time comes, face
their problem.
Bo frequently bus the student body heen charged with the sins
of omission that it may be somewhat of a relief lo be accused of a sin
of commission. The increasing numbers of paths that are being
formed over the newly ploughed fields of the campus arc a source of
anxiety to the authorities. Surely the students, even those attempting
to attend early lectures, have enough will-power to walk the two or
three steps more and keep to the sidewalk. We may sigh like Hupert
Brooke for the green meadows where "tins llelreteii" is not "ver-
boten," but until our green meadows have reached the'stage where
they are at least visible to the naked eye, let us give it ample opportunity to make its appearance. The immense Inbnr involved in turning the University grounds into lawns deserves at, least this consideration.
rest Is made up of men from Victoria
College, Arts ••>*, Science "29, and a
few who studied for Senior Matriculation outside of the University. Our
class has Inherited one member of
last year's Freshman Interclass swimming team.
In defense of the Faculty of Ap-
nlled Science, let it be known that
eight of Hie McKechnie Cup team are
Science men.

Cain and Abel were getting scared.
They had been very wild and woolly
in the Undergraduato days, and at
laat their consciences were beginning
to trouble them.
Suddenly Abel had a bright Idea
and proceeded to act on it. He killed
4 lftnib trout his flock, and made a
biirnt ottering of mutton—as is done
by the Cafeteria to the present day.
As tbe smoke went straight up In
the air he gave a skyrocket and nine
rahs, and slapped himself on the baok
With flee,
Cain watched bis brother with Jealousy. At last he could stand It no
longer. Collecting a pile of apples,
bananas, farina and corn cobs, he set
It alight and watched the smoke.
This time it did not go up in the air,
bdt Cain did. As he realised the general smoke nuisance ho jumped up
and began expressing his feelings lu
uitra-Ulbllcal language.
"Gosh ding it, what can 1 do now?"
he snarled, pointing to his unsuccessful saorlflco.
"Bar It with flowers," suggested
Abel mildly, before Cain began mauling him.

Come let us sing a Jolly song—
A song of high-strung revelrie
And mingle with the crowd among
The boys and girls of U. B. C.
Come let us trip a twinkling toe
And merry pass the night away,
So choose your partners and let's go,
And happy be as flowers in May.
For once let study be forgot
And  turn your  thoughts  to other
However sad may be your lot,
Cupids' dart wilt make amends.
Old time Is short and art ia long
And Science Is no sinecure-
Choose your partners from among

"They Shall Not Pats"
An Anticipation of Four
Weeks Hence
The battlo is over, but whether unto
victory or down to defeat the gods of
war have not yet decreed. The conflict has beon shrewd and very costly.
Much precious ink has been spilled
as the contestants clashed in passionate espousal of their several causes.
Wit pitted against wit, the ingenious
devloe of professorial subtlety la
searching attempt to flunk the patient
neophyte. Now the enemy has done
hla worst.
Day arter day the strugglo has
drawn out its weary hours; front nine
till noon, when by mutual consent all
parties retire for refreshment, slnoe
the rules or battle must be observed.
From two till five the oombatanta
join again in strong and stern array.
Timid Freshmen, pallid from unwonted nocturnal vigil, vainly biding
their dread of the unknown behind •
feebly Jaunty air, but suddenly bold
in the face of danger and feverishly
ready at the aero hour.
"All Chemistry students attention I"
Freshettes a-flutter as with chirps
and squeaks they prepare tor the fray,
A high and haughty Senior, with the
mein of a suffering Socrates, saunters in, drooping his offensive Waterman between scornful lips, Not for
him the fever of anxiety, the bloodshot eye, the fear of horrid toe. This
is old stuff, and rather a bore than
otherwise. Plainly English honours,
and disillusioned at that. Taking bis
place In the front row and gailng rapt-
ly up at the electric light pendant ne
gives himself over to profound thought
and exquisite expression.
Sophs, with that deceptive semblance ot wisdom peculiar to tbe species, earnestly ape the nonchalance of
their betters, but alas! certain pale-
blue books dangling from Sophouorie
Angers, mark them down for whit
they are. Here and there the perfect
warrior, the Junior, lacking nothing
but the awful hauteur of the Senior
lends silent strength and dignity to
the whole student company.
Papers rustle, held In nerveless
hands; sighs of maidenly distress disturb the troubled air; pens poise and
scratch and poise again till Stark aid
strenuous silence falling, wraps the
field of labor in its breathless folds.
And so with flying pens ln frantlti
haste to fill the vacant page before
that cruel shatterer of all our peaee
shall halt the flow of mark-engendering phrase with rude command, the
minutes melt away.
"All two-hour papers" ruthlessly begins the professor, and a gasp of horror breaks from a hundred throats,
"Have only fifteen minutes more," finishes the voice of doom, and with a
nervous titter one hundred Freshies
re-compose themselves to write.
A weary scribbler, having finished
his little all, gathers together his scattered possessions, the baneful watch;
the coat torn off tn heat of battle; the
scored and blotted paper, precious
trophy proudly to be displayed to own
peculiar "crowd;" finally the books,
those only Instruments by which some
paltry credits can be pried from the
reluctant fingers of his all powerful
DIscliarKliiK these futile weapons
'•i' hrliiRH the day's offensive to a
close. Laying them on the table he
swiftly walks away.
His little bolt Is shot, now he can
only rue the day that he was born,
and nibble mournfully at hla nails ln
repentance of the many hours he
spent In perfecting the Charleston,
while the studious few had urgently
wooed the Divinity of their cause In
the   quiet  concourse  of   the  library.
Another, depositing his books In order, strides out, with much affectation of Indifference.
Yet otl'crs follow him till:
"Thick and fast they come at last,
And more, and more, and more—
All hopping down the centre aisle,
And striding out the door."
The Jostling crowd Is soon dispersed, but the examiner Is unmoved, he
si III stands, calm, unperturbed.
Certain longer-suffering souls
scratch on and on, Ink flows profusely while philosophers finish their dialectic, classicists Ket rid of a few more
Trojans or settle another of Plutarch's "Lives," sclentlBls dispose of
New Ion or Einstein hs their several
temperaments require, and tne haughty "KiikIIsIi houoms" puts a period to
his i'IosIiik peroration.
Time is up. "All papers In now,
please" murmurs ihe enemy. With
such soft speech does he cloak tills
tit e, for the Held Is his. lOvery con-
tislani withdrawn, as Ihe last atop
echoes down the empty corridor he
u'lithers up the pitiful products of
brainy sweat and takes himself and
books with him to tils lair.
Nothing more can be done but
The only reason a university man
doesn't wear a hat Is ao that he won't
have to take his hands out ot his
pocket every time he meets a woman
he knows. i pvjp*.

Standard of Letter
Award is Raised
The most important meeting of the
Men's Athletic Association this year
was held Wednesday noon In Ap. So.
100. The student body showed its
Intense interest in Important matters
by attending In a body large enough to
just make a quorum, which Is twenty
per cent, of the registration.
After the minutes ot the last meeting had beon adopted, the amendments
to the constitution were put before
the house. President Butler read tho
report of the committee, which went
over the letter award system during
the summer with a view to raising the
standard of Varsity letter awards.
One of the most important recommendations of the committee was that
a Committee on Big Block Awards be
formed, this to consist of the President
of the Association, chairman, one faculty representative, one alumni representative, and two undergraduate representatives, who have had some executive experience. This committee
Is to be chosen by the executive and
Is to have final accretion In the
awarding of Big Block Letters.
Besides this, the new amendment
calls for a general raising of the standard In all snorts, The qualifications
of a man who Is to receive a letter
are stricter under the new constitution than they have ever been before.
Froshmen are to be awarded by
class numerals; they will receive no
Varsity letters. These numerals will
signify ln after years, that the holder
made a University team while still a
Freshman. These numerals then have
more meaning than an ordinary letter
would. Furthermore, a Freshman who
makes a team In his first year, will
surely make it in later years, and so
receive his letter.
These amendments were discussed
at some length, but were Anally adopted as they stood by a unanimous vote
of the whole meeting.
November 19th, 1926
Varsity "A" celebrated Its third
straight win on Wednesday night
when the team defeated the Vancouver
Y.W.C.A. at the Y by 18-10.
The Y played a close checking game
and, though Varsity worked well, they
found it impossible to break into their
usual open game. Consequently play
was rough and combination poor.
Score—Rene Harris 3, Torchy Bailey
A, Clara Menton 6, Thelma Mahon 2,
Oay Swenciski 2,
A daring little squad from Education
'27 tangled with a gang ot tough
Science men ln a snappy basketball
game Tuesday night. For the flrst few
minutes, fur flew thick and fast and
the air fairly reeked with sweat. .Nothing of importance happened. Eye-witnesses testify that Science won on
baskets scored, but the pedogaglcal
crew consider that the least of their
worries. Both teams enjoyed the fun
-and that's the main thing.
The University Rowing Club had its
second work-out on Wednesday, Arrangements were completed with thu
Vancouver Club last week, and the
University is to have accommodation
nt the Club House until spring.
A full turn-out ot would-be rowers
cannot be handled this yoar as Varsity wished, for Varaity is not using
any of the Vancouver Club's equipment. It Is a great pity, for last year,
having full privileges, UB.C, had a
full turn-out and developed a senior,
Intermediate and freshman 8, as well
as a tackwelght and senior four. Varsity would have rowed Washington had
It been able to train sooner.
The importance of rowing as a university sport cannot be too fully em-
fhasised. Situated on the sea, the
I.B.C. is essentially a rowing college.
There is everything in the way of
competition to foster It—the strong
Vancouver Club In the olty, just handy
to the south Is the U. ot Washington,
home of the famous "Huskies," and
then down the coast is the U. ot California, and city clubs of the North Pa-
clflo Association. In short, rowing at
U.B.C. is the slmpllest means towards
that so much desired inter-collegiate
The University ot Washington has
shown itself very anxious to foster
competition up here. Last year they
sent us an 8-oared shell. They are
quite willing, too, to offer the U.B.C.
suitable competition at any time.
This year is Varsity's opportunity
to send a crew south. U.B.C. has an
"8" to train in, and Washington expects Varsity to do something. Besides, the Interest taken in rowing last
year—some 60 men turned out—and
the turn-out at the first meeting this
year—some 40 men—and the list of
men—some 76—quite warrants the intention.
Isn't It time that we quit "poor
aistering" soccer?
For some strange reason nearly any
activity ot this university can secure
somekind ot half-hearted support
save the soccer team and it doesn't
receive any support at all. Why is
It there la never a pep meeting for
the soccer team?
The Soccer team is the only true
major team of the University of
British Columbia. The English rugby
team plays a local and intercity
series, the Canadian Rugby team
plays an intercity series, and the soccer  team  plays  an  lnter-coastal   city

Arriving at Oxford as British Columbia's representative for the Rhodes scholarship, Warren made a name
for himself In the Freshman and Varsity sports.
The Freshman meet brought together some of the fastest Amerloan,
Canadian, Ansae and British sprinters and Harry showed his heels to
all of them.
The most famous of the representatives were the two Americans dates
and Norton.
antes was the Rhodes scholar from
Princeton and a member of the former world record-breaking 440 yard

Stanford and California am taking

Washington plays it as an lntermural

Washington State. This is the one
intercollegiate sport tn which the
University ot British Columbia could
meet these teams and heat them, and
beat them badly, yet the soccer team
