Thrilling Dramas To Be Presented
Beginning with the Alumnus Banquet on Friday and extending through the annual skits, a basketball game, a dance
and finally a special church service on Sunday, this year's
Homecoming promises to be an entertaining one. Originally
planned for Saturday afternoon, the W.U.S. Tea Dance has
been cancelled as has the Varsity-Occasional? rugby match and
instead a dance will be held in the gym. following the Varsity
vs. Province basketball game Saturday evening.
The Graduate Banquet will be held^-  ,

Cops Black Maria
Picks Up Bursar
SENTENCED TO TWENTY-FIVE
HAPPY YEARS
F. F. Dallas, retired Bursur of the
U.B.C. was arrested Wednesday afternoon, taken to court in the police
"Black Maria," and given the imposing sentence of 25 years by the
judge!
All this is not as bad as it sounds.
It is true that Mr. Dallas was arretted by a sturdy Scotch constable, and
was escorted to court in the usual
manner; but the court was held in
the Board Room at the U.B.C, he
jury consisting of members of the
Faculty.
Prosecutor Boving charged the recent bursur with "twenty years of
faithful service," The accused pleaded guilty to the twenty years and expressed the hope that the court found
them faithful.
The accused pleading guilty, Judge
Sedgwick sentenced him to 25 years
of peace and happiness. A gift from

bag.
Mr. Dallas thanked tho jury for
their generous sentence and court adjourned for tea.

Students' Aptitude
Decides Occupation
In his second address to prospective sciencemen on choosing a vocation, Denn Brock continued his list
of reasons for choosing or not choosing a certain occupation.
He repeated that the choice was definitely not to be based on the number of openings available, nor on the
remuneration, nor on the easiness of
the work involved, but rather on the
service to be rendered, or move especially, on the aspirant's aptjtude
for, and interest in, the undertaking.
Bad Work a Disservice
"But, if you aren't fitted for your
work, you will be doing a disservjee
instead of a service to the world,"
he declared.
He stressed the point that the main
consideration was to have a liking
for the work that would later develop into a permanent interest in it.
In the Dean's opinion, university
students are hjest suited to the professions, where a liberal education
and a liking for mental work are required.
Sterling Character an Essential
To Success
"Selling bfe insurance is a practical application of the Gospel of Love",
this was one of the more sensational
statements made, by Mr. McKay, of
the Dominion Life Insurance Company, on a vocational guidance lecture held in Arts 100, noon, Wednesday.
"The vocation of life insurance is
for ono who serves as a consultant
rather than a mere peddlar of policies." In these troublous times there
is "no group of men who have such
a stabilizing influence as the life insurance under-writers."
Criticism Dying.Down
"Untrained sellers of life insurance
have under-mined the position thoi
life insurance should have todav
Training methods have advanced,
however, and criticism is dying
down.'' / ,
The speaker stated that in order to
be a success in the life insurance
business a man must have "sterling
character, integrity beyond reproach
and he must like helping and meeting people." Added, to these is the
necessity for a genuine interest in
the business and proper working
habits.
Three Considerations
In choosing a vocation, a person,
according to Mr. McKay, is influenced by three considerations. These
are monetary compensation, opportunity for service, and tbe prestige
attached to the position. Life insurance furnishes all three to a remarkable degree.
Payment in the business is made on
a commission basis, this is the way
in which the true sales type wishes
to be paid. Although a great many
people have to be Interviewed for
every application received, the payment Is high.
Opportunities Good
As for the opportunities for service, Mr. McKay is convinced that
they are boundless. The life Insurance man who is truly interested in
his work follows Ihe'sanv: procedure
as a doctor. He discovers the condition of the patient, diagnoses the
case, and prescribes treatment. "Life
insurance has been called 'the fostering mother of America'."
Life insurance companies are the
"largest financial Institutions in the
world. "In 1932 life insurance companies paid out four thousand three
hundred and twelve tons of gold
every day of the week. Naturally a
great amount of prestige attaches to
an enterprise with such huge financial resources."
Mr. McKay concluded his lecture
by reading excerpts from an address
by Mr. Carol Day of Oklahoma. This
address was to the effect that life
insurance is a measuring rod to provide for the income both of today and
tomorrow.
Broadcasting
From Varsity
Short Wave Station Will Pro-
vide Needful Publicity
That a short wave broadcasting station be set up and operated on this
Campus by the members of the Radio
Club, Council granted $18 on their
budget which was brought at the
meeting Tuesday night.
The publicity that such a station
would bring to the University is con-
1 siderable. In tha event of intercollegiate games or debates, many people would pick up the advance notices on their short wave receiving
sets.
Would Have Helped Alberta Game
"If we had had n broadcasting station for the Alberta game we could
have put the tpme on the air by
ourselves," said Fred Bolton, president of M.A.A. "Most universities of
this size have radio stations already."
Tho University of Alberta operates a
well known long wave station. One
of Council's policies is to further a
wide interest in the university. A
broadcasting station, Council felt, will
help along this line.
The question of holding university
balls in cabaret style, instead of thc
usual formal way, was- hotly debated
at the same meeting. Murray Mather,
president of the A.M.S., declared that
when people wore sitting at small
tables they did not mix very much
| with the rest of the crowd and that
1 after all is the purpose of University
functions. Defending the negative,
however, Walter Kennedy, president
of the M.U.S., said, "This business of
standing up gets me down." No decision was reached.

Peace Conference
Held ThisWeek-end
Culminating another year's effort to
advance the cause of peace, the
League of Nations Society of Canada,
Vancouver Branch, assisted by local
organizations, is holding its annual
Peace Conference on Saturday, Nov.
10. The theme, Progress Towards
Peace," will be dealt with by various
speakers at the three sessions to
which tht public is cordially invited.
Pro. H. S. Angus To Speak
This very extensive program will
commence at 12:30 at a luncheon in
the Ballroom of the Hotel Georgia.
At this affair Mr. George Winter will
act as chairman. On this occasion
the guest speaker is Professor H. F.
Angus of the Department of Economics at the University of British
Columbia. His topic will be "Does
the Preservation of Peace Require
Sanction?"
Devotional Services
Following a short intermission the
conference will again convene at 2:30 J
under the chairmanship of Colonel
Hiam. Dr. Willard Brewing from St.
Andrew's-Wesley will conduct the devotional services. Next the viewpoint of youth on the barriers to
Peace will be discussed by Miss E.
Matheson and Mr. Cyril Chave, both
students of the University. A new
feature is the Questionnaire on the
League of Nations during which Professor F. H. Soward will answer
problems on the League. Prior to
the main address a short interlude of
Folk Dancing and Music will be presented. To conclude this session the
association has secured Mr. Percy
Bengough of the International Labor
Office in Geneva. This very able
speaker has chosen to discuss the
"Accomplishments of the International Labour Organization."
Kitsilano Band
In the Auditorium of the University at 8 o'clock Dr. C. W. Topping
will be chairman. Two outstanding
items fill this program. First the
world-famous Kitsilano Boys' Band
will play several numbers. Finally
Dr. N. F. Coleman from Reed College, Portland, Oregon, is to speak on
'Conflict of Interests in tbe Far East
and How it Affects America."
"Like Herr Hitler, I believe in the holy trinity of women:
kitchen, kirk and kids," stated Gordon Dolsen, leader of the
affirmative when he successfully upheld the resolution: "That
women's place is in the home," at the fortnightly meeting of the
parliamentary forum last Tuesday evening at 7:30 in Arts 100.
"Not only is it anti-democratic to state that women should
.only cook and raise kids; it is both anti-social and out of date!"
according to Betty Muscovitch—the substitute leader of the
negative who at the last minute stepped into the shoes of the
chosen leader, our imparter of "brilliant repartee", Madeline
Bowden, and defended the rights of the fairer sex to more than
home life.
 — —<$>   Continung. the first speaker for the
opposition pointed out nil the briliant women of history and art: Jane
Austen, Fannie Hearst and George
Eliot of literary fame; Mme. Curie in
the field of science; and Lily Pons
in the realm of beautiful music. She
noted that the reigns of Queen Elizabeth, Queen Victoria and Queen
Anne were among the three most
noted .n English history.
Men Demand Culture
A second speaker for the opposition
claimed that men want women to
know more than just how to serve
tomatoes; according to him, man
wants her to know all about world
affairs so that she can discuss current events with him intelligently
when he comes home from thq office
—instead of babbling about contract
bridge and the cutest little hat. To
attain this level of intelligence he
stated that women must do more than
remain in the home,
genie are not happy; and I maintain
fecnei are not happy; and I maintain
that happiness should be the goal of
women; they are the centre of home-
life and influence the nation through
the men at home not by active participation," said Theolog Cal Thomson, speaking for 4he government.
Quebec Example of Women In Home
"Womier. are too much the centre of
home-life; this is the cause of much
of our economic disorder. In Quebec, women have not the right to
vote. There both church and state
discourage women from participation
in politics preferring to keep them
in the stulifying atmosphere of home.
And what is the result? Quebec
stands last among the provinces in social legislation. The majority of our
social legislation is the result directly

NOTICE
The Student's Council received the
following notice from the faculty
council:
Atl a meeting of the faculty council
on Oct. 23 the matter of smoking in
University buildings was considered
and the following resolution was
passed: That there be no smoking
during the examination period or in
the lecture rooms either during or
between lectures, and that the question of smoking in the laboratories
be left to the discretion of the instructor in charge.
' It is scarcely five weeks till Christmas examinations begin. The natural
trend of the student body is to the
Library. This institution is enjoying
unprecedented popularity. The reason is easily discovered. There is a
serious epidemic of essays on the
Campus.
Strict Discipline Necessary
The Library has been taxed to the
limit of its resources to meet the demands of the students. Under such
conditions it is ncessary that strict
discipline be enforced If the work is
to be efficient/
Every student in his or her own
interests should co-operate in every
possible way. The Library staff are
burdened with work. It is not their
desire to take on the additibnal role
of policeman. This will be unnecessary if the following points are kept
in mind. , x;
No Gossip
Please remember when you enter
the Library that It is a place for work
and study. There is no room for people who only wish to waste time and
gossip. There are other places such'
as the Cafeteria where people can
lounge if they wish.
Do NOT charge into the Library
and slam down your books on the
table. You are deliberately being ill-
mannered, rude and most inconsiderate, for you are disturbing those who
wish to work. This is a time of the
year when every student should practise the Golden Rule. Let us not do
anything which we would not want
others to do to us.
Stay at Right Tables
The periodical reference tables are
NOT study tables. Please do not prevent others from using the index oy
making these tables your permanent
abode.
Reserved books should be returned
promptly at the end of the two
hours. Remember other people are
anxious to use them too.
The Library will be open on Saturday afternoons till 5 p.m. beginning
Nov. 17 until Saturday, Dec. 8. This
will provide additional time for
study.
It has been decided that NO
serve books may be taken for
Christmas holidays this year.

Mass Education
Popular In Japan
Before the largest audience this
year to attend an S.C.M. lecure, Dean
Bollert spoke on Tuesday noon In
Arts 100 about "Student Life in Japan." She discussed Japanese education and the disadvantages facing
Canadian-born Japanese students in
orienting themselves to Japanese customs and language. Beside the difficulty of grammar, twenty new
sounds must be learned to speak the
language. These students have acquired European standards and customs, and those of Japan seem queer
to   them.
No nation takes education more
seriously than Japan. Their large and
beautiful schools are very modern,
although they house an ancient culture. Formerly, education was only
for the Samurai or military class,
but now, under Royal patronage the
schools have been opened to everyone. The Emperor, whose edict is
always final, has decreed thus:
"Henceforth, education shall be so
diffuse that no family or member of
a family shall be ignorant."
For the first six years, both sexes
study together, but from then on
there  is strict segregation.
The first general study in Japanese
schools i§. English. This subject is
compulsory for six years. Secondly,
but scarcely less important comes
Physical Education, which has a tremendous hold on the people as a
whole. Efforts are being made to increase the stature of the Japanese
people, and large playgrounds are a
part of every school. Store and factory workers exercise regularly on-
the roofs of their buildings. Everyone in Japan gets up at 6 a.m. to do
Physical "Jerks" to the radio.

A WORD TO THE WISE
Certain unknown persons might be interested to know that article XIV of the code of
the Alma Mater Society as printed in this
year's Handbook reads as follows: "No publications or advertisements whatsoever shall be
carried on or distributed and no member shall
sell or attempt to sell or dispose of any publications or advertisements on the University
Campus without first having secured permission by resolution of the Students' Council."
Since these aforementioned "unknown persons" have not the courage to sign their names
to their personal opinions we would not otherwise have taken any notice of them. But since
they also are apparently unaware that their activities are unlawful it is only fair that we
should inform them of that fact, so that they
may govern themselves accordingly.
WE SHOW OUR BREEDING
Again some Varsity students have succeeded in demonstrating the low standard of
manners on this campus. One gets tired of
railing those serious-minded students who insist on leaving the auditorium before the five-
to bell. It would be well for them to remember than any person of average ability can get
from the Arts to the Science building in one to
two minutes. Even if you have to go to a lecture that is not an excuse for such flagrant
bad manners. Without a knowledge of the
fundamentals of good breeding one cannot
have any claim to culture or even to an education. The best solution of the problem is not to
go at all or to stand unobtrusively at the door.
Probably most of the speakers who come
out here realize that the average students are
so uncultured and callow that they haven't yet
realized that it is rude to leave a guest talking
to a rapidly vanishing audience. Even the most
broad-minded, however, could not condone the
exhibition that took place last Monday. A professor from a neighboring university shouted
down by a student heckler from the gallery!
Told that he was a bore and it would be a good
thing if he got off the floor. It seems almost
unbelievable, and we would be the first to
censor such behavior in any other university.
Such a breach of good manners in our opinion
does more to destroy the good name of a university than even occasional drinking or
gambling for which offending students have to
pay heavy fines or be suspended.

CLASS & CLUB
What Price YeUs ?
Having had sad experience of the evil effects of advising the Council and praising the
C.O.T.C, I do hope that my friends in the Pep
Club will not take it too much amiss if I suggest that, though their long continued and
noble efforts to arouse student support for the
games deserves the highest commendation,
they have evidently much to learn about handling a crowd propjsrly when they do get it out.
On last Monday, when they had practically
the entire student body out to the Alberta
game, they fell down on the job.
It was an enthusiastic crowd. It wanted to
yell. In fact, it did yell—but almost entirely
without assistance from the Pepsters.
Whenever an exciting play was pulled—
and there were plenty—an audible jdemand
for the missing cheer leaders would run
through the crowd, and die away in a few
spasmodic "Yeah! Varsity!"s. In the'intervals
the same lack of leadership was apparent.
At the start of the game the crowd was at
fever heat. At the end it was as dead as a
warmed over omelette. '•
The way to handle a crowd is to get it hot,
—and keep it hot. The Pep Club had a wonderful chance and missed it.
V. C. U.
A social will be held tonight at the
home of Miss Ellen Colwell, 4570
Windsor street (take car No. 7). All
members and friends invited.
Tomorrow, a number of students,
to represent the V.C.U., will leave for
Seattle for the week-end conference.
For further particulars see the notice
board.
FOREST CLUB
Mr. V. D. Lamaye, of the Forest
Research Institute, Derha Dun (India), gave a very interesting address
to the Forest Club on Tuesday noon.
He described the physiographic and
topographic conditions found in the
Indian forests, and explained, in some
detail, the logging of teak, which is
the most important wood of their
forests. This teak grows in stands
not adapted to machine logging, so
difficulties are overcome by using
elephants, which carry the logs with
their trunks. These animals are remarkably intelligent and with a little
training are, very expert in this work.
Mr. Lamaye stated that the relatively
large number of, tigers and snakes in
the forest was necessary to preserve
a balance in nature, by living on the
rodents, deer and monkeys, which
me a pest. The speaker stated that
a temperature of 120 degrees in De-
hra Dun was much pleasanter than
one of 90 degrees in Washington,

When I'm Dead, Don't Bury Me At All
President Jim Ferris of Arts '36 made a
very pertinent criticism of the A.M.U.S. at the
annual elections of his class last week. He
said that the Arts Men's organization is dead.
It is.
ii the Arts Men (and I, to my shame, am
one of them, would take a look at what the
W.U.S. and the Science Men are doing, they
would see what perambulating cadavers they
are themselves. Neither of these are much
beter than half alive, but at least they are trying to do something.
We Arts Men are dumb, dead, and decayed
- - and seem to be proud of it.
May the Lord have mercy on our souls!
They Think They're Important
Our esteemed contemporary, the mysterious "Canyesee," appears to hint in spots that
the "Ubyssey" might be a trifle livelier than it
is. This is obvious, even to the "Ubyssey" staff!'
One section of the campus population, however, does not seem to think so. This is the
squad of verbose club secretaries that insist
on sending in long drawn out accounts of discussions and addresses.
If people are interested in the doings of
these clubs, they will join them. If they are
not, they won't read two-thirds of a column
of undiluted tripe about them. "Club" space
in the "Ubyssey" columns is wast space.
The club advance notices are also another
space graft. Six lines at the outside is quite
sufficient to advise members of the place and
time of meetings. Two would be adequate.
The Angel Gabriel announcing his celebrated
trumpet performance should rate no more.
Anything over this is straight advertising.
Let them pay for it. If they don't the student
body does when it comes to foot the yearly
Publications deficit.
And when it comes to the organizations that
demand anywhere frofn four to seven inches

S. C. M. and OXFORD GROUP
Anxious to avoid further division
of the religious life on the campus
the inner team of the Oxford Group
and the Executive of the Student
Christian Movement met Wednesday
nopn »nd agreed upon mutual cooperation in many activities. In future the S.C.M. will sponsor the
meetings of the Group.
The thoroughly reasonable requirement of the student administration
that meetings on the campus must be
sponsored by a responsible body with
officers elected according to a constitution, put the Oxford Group in a
peculiar position. They feel the genuineness of interest and spontaniety
of their members and leaders might
be stifled by a constitution and set
election procedures. The Group feel,
also, that they will more effectively
reach men and women on the campus
with their message and life outlook
if they continue as an informal,
loosely organized group.
Interestingly, the S.C.M., while having a constitution «nd officers, has
no fixed membership — participation
in its activities being the only bases
or form of membership.
The S.C.M. is ready to see that the
Oxford Group is ^given an opportunity to present their interpretation of
religion to the campus, but endorses
it as only one of many ways of
looking at life. The S.C.M. will maintain many of its own activities including discussion groups, informal
fire-side meetings, camps and the
Tuesday noon series of addresses. The
Oxford Group will hold their own
meetings, many of which will be
open to the whole- campus.
There is general approval of the
action of these religious groups in
seeking as close co-ordination as
their differing approaches will, permit. It is to be expected that both
groups will be strengthened and
broadened by the mutual contacts
and activities.
BIOLOGICAL   DISCUSSION   CLUB
The Biological Discussion Club will
meet .it the home of Mrs. W. Brooks,
1632 Burnaby street, on Monday, Nov.
12,  at 8  o'clock.
Miss Dorothy Buchanan will speak
on "Voice in Vertebrates,"
Please  note  correction  of  address.
The Thunderbirds lost their treasured
Hardy Cup in the game on Monday. But U.B.C.
students have no reason to be downhearted,
because by their wonderful support of this
game they showed as fine a revival of genuine Varsity spirit as could be desired. Anybody who was not present at the pep meeting
and the game missed a rare treat. And as, usual
the stimulant of competition with another Canadian university team inspired the members of
the team to play their finest game of the season.
The president and the faculty of the university deserve the appreciation of the student body for their action in cancelling afternoon lectures, for without their co-operation
in this way such wonderful student support
would not have been possible. This was a memorable occasion, and is one of the things that
enriches our recollections of university life.
Greek Restaurant Sports
And did the Meralomas bellyache about
"sportsmanship"?
How about calling off the Varsity-Occasional game when it was already an integral

the dislocation of Varsity's plans, and ruining
the tea-dance? What about putting the fritz

Meraloma "sportsmanship" now?

ponding for undergrad or alumnus that is seen
in the stands at the Meraloma-Roughrider

(Continued from. Page 1)
or indirectly of female insistence."
These were the opening remarks of
John Sumner, president of the L.S.E.
and member of council who sprang
to his feet in defense of the fair ones'
liberty.
Sumner continued, pointing out
how the property concept of women
has persisted until recently. "The
new order believes that both men and
women are legal persons thus destroying the old concept. Similarly
women must come out of the home
and lead us men. I maintain, further, Mr. Speaker, that she could do
no worse in the realm of public life
than we have done."
John George Hill Gets Serious
"We are taking this subject altogether too lightly; -we must be serious. Not only is it pathetic, it is the
tragedy of the age. Just as during
the ware we lost a generation of fine
young men; so today we are depriving tomorrow of a new generation.
Women who should be propragating
the race are working in industry for
lower wages than a .married man
could accept and still support a family on. Men fought bravely during
the war while women courageously
took their peace time jobs—temporarily. But when the men came home
the women retained the jobs while
the men were rewarded for their war
service by having to walk the streets.
This disgraceful condition has persisted right down to the present day
when there are 5,000,000 women in
American Industry. Why, right in
Vancouver in the American Can Co.
there are women employed — just
think of that, mind you! It is disgraceful to think that employers prefer female secretaries because they
are better company. Ah well, this
is an age of punishment of man!"
contributed John George Hill of last
year's beard contest and big shot behind tho "Oust women from industry
movement."
Hill Selfish, Says Disney
"I believe that Hill is selfish wanting everything to himself, in spite of
the fact that there are 2,500,000 more
women than men. A man can only
keep one wife in his home. All women are  not like Hill's sisters—con
stantly seeking marriage—mine has
given her life to social service and
can't marry. Anyway women are
more useful out of the home; take
the entertainment of man for instance: where would the talkies be
without Mae West? Maggie in "Bringing up Father"' is an example of what
woman develops into in the home,"
replied Peter Disney, our debater
from England.
Ubyssey Reporter Looks To Future
"In the future all the work of the
world will be done by machine and
this will be done outside the home.
Men and women will only have to
think and to "live" and these can
best be done in the home. In her
leisure hours, when not "living,"
women can devote their time to becoming great writers, singers, and
actresses; this can be done in the
home as .well as elsewhere. There
she can make her contribution to
political discussion; there too, With
her male she can "live" in all that
the word Implies," stated the Ubyssey
reporter.
Wider Definition ot Home
"We must accept the wider definition of home as the basis for our
discussion: by home, I mean not only
a house and the activities within that
house, I mean also the outside activities that are related thereto; such
as: teaching the children in primary
school and nursing members of the
male sex after the Doctor has done
his part. If we accept this definition
of "home" than I firmly maintain
that that is women's place. It is
her natural place; God intended that
she should be the nucleous of home
life in its widest sense. These are
functions that she can perform much
better than man; therefore I say let
her do these things and let man do
those for which he is best suited,"
said an alumni member of the forum
in closing the debate.

News
The enthusiastic frosh and soph
who organized the battles on the
campus this year will be pleased to
hear that they made big news for the
University of Saskatchewan students.
I Under the heading "Serious Fights
. Break Out on British Col. Campus
"the Sheaf," U. of Saskatchewan paper, printed the following news
story:
Serious freshman-sophomore fights
breaking out on the University of
British Columbia campus have raised
objections from the University authorities in Vancouver. Developments
threatened to remova. much of the
governing power of the students'
council and place discipline and control in the hands of the faculty.
Serious Crisis
Commenting on thes-3 developments
thc Ubyssey, University of British
Columbia paper, stated "Student
government is today facing a serious
crisis."
A second freshman-sophomore battle took place on Tuesday, Oct. 2.
President Murray Mather was unable
to stop it.
Snake Parade
Mather further spoke to freshmen
on the campus and asked them to
abandon  plans for   a  snake   parade
own town, but a parade was held in
spite of his picas.
The snake parade took its traditional course through the streets of Vancouver into Cbinitown. Theatres, hotels and beer parlors, ware entered.
Police Turn Out
The entire police force of the city
turned out to preserve law and order.
Motorcycles toro through the parade,
ut the line was unbreakable, the
police force could do nothing. If doors
were shut against the rioting freshmen they soon cpenvjd under threats
of being broken down.    An attempt
-is made to lake the trolley of a
street car off thc line, but police intervened.
Lose Pants
In the frosh-soph fight 150 freshmen took part. Powerful searchlights,
rotten tomatoes, gasoline, kicking
militamen mixed in the melee. Towards the end tne sophs, whose pants
had been removed by the freshmen,
turned on the rrllita. The milita in
turn lost their pants.
MY NEW DICTIONARY
By Maurice Lane-Norcott
This article taken from the Daily
Mail, should be welcomed by many
students as completing a possibly
picturesque, but still inadequate vocabulary:
It will come as a pleasant surprise
to those readers of The Daily Mail
who have been complaining in "Letters to the Editor," of the mutilation
of the English language to learn that
I have the situation well in hand.
Indeed, ever since crooners and
professors of nil sorts began to broadcast, I have been hard at work on my
revised edition of the English Dictionary.
For example, take thc old-fashioned
word "and." Well, nowadays, as
wireless listeners are fully aware, this
word is frequently replaced by "tan"
—as in the :iong we hear night and
clay, namely, "Nigh Tan Day."
It is, of coins■>, impossible, as well
as impolitic, for me to give here more
than a brief extract from my dictionary. But ifs worth may be judged
I think, from the following samples:
aim— a contraction of "I am," as in
the sentence, "Aim so heppy."
cherish—small stone fruit of the
plum family.
frill—a sudden sensation or emotion
usually experienced at the cinema.
garlic—any Welshman, Irishman, or
Highland Scot.
gnaw—an angry expression of refusal, generally accompanied by a
shake of the ho id or, perhaps, a blow.
hawk—to listen to; an imperative
demand for yilence.
Iicclcji'— what a sharp knife has; the
extreme top po'lion of a cliff.
herald—an early English king who
was defeated at the Battle of Hastings,
I    ''wiprcss—a    female    ruler;    Queen
I Victoria.
lime—the inability to walk on one
defined an idea as a "composite of
sensory  elements."   Fechner  carried
on exhaustive    experiments    in the
measurements of sensations and confirmed Webber's Law on the unlike-
ness of sensations. His difficulty lay
in testing the variations of stimulus
and sensation. Fechner was the first
to give psychology a definite experimental  foundation    and    influenced
Wundt in the founding of his laboratory in Leipzig in 1879. Perceptions,
according to Wundt, were "culminations of sensations and memories so
closely  blended  that  there was no
possibility, of drawing a sharp line
between the two." Apperception was
the final term in causing action, and
the cental force ln the explanation of |
the   mental   processes.   All   recall,
Wundt said, is controlled by apperception   as   well   as  association.   His
ideal was to confirm each statement
by experiment and to rely on proved
facts as the real datum bf the science—his re-action time experiments.
His laboratory work Involved the simplification and the standardization of
conditions of work, and a narrowing
of the field  of problems to be approached.
Cultivate Detachment
Titchner led the attack in defense
of a systematic introspective psychology in structuralist terms. To see
experience exactly as it was they had
to cultivate a detachment. He adopted
the word "existential" instead of
"structuralistic" as he was concerned
more with the "raw existence of experience", the description of totals rather than the details of structure. The
difficulty with introspection is the
impossibility of testing the data; but
Titchner was not adverse to the simultaneous use of objective methods.
Unlike Wundt he bebeved that mind
and brain were closely connected but
he was really not interested in the
functional processess,
Structuralism, as defined by Pills-
bury, is the school of psychology
"which holds that consciousness is
directly observable" and the task of
the school is "to discover and describe the elements of consciousness,
and to determine how they combine
to produce the more complicated
structures,"
Mass Education
(Continued from Page 1)
The curriculum is similar to that
of any American school with the exception that Patriotism is a definite
course. Religion; is not taught in the
schools, but handed down in the family. The Buddhists have turned from
this traditional method of spreading
religion to the Christian evangelical
method of holding large meetings and
doing Social Service work. They
have even adopted Christian hymns
—"How Sweet the Name of Buddah
Sounds."
Men hold chief place in Japanese
school life. Seventy percent of the
teachers are men—they even teach
kindergarten. Women are not welcomed to the Universities, and there
is approximately one woman student
for ovary four hundred men in Tokyo. Some women are taking a stand
in such questions as sufferage, but
as yet they are very few.

SCANDAL SHEET
PRINTS INDICTMENT OF
CANADIAN   RUGBY   TEAM.
As students no doubt are aware the Ubys-
ssey receives many interesting newspapers
from other colleges, towns, etc. This week
another newspaper was added to the exchange
list, the "Canyessey." There is a feeling among
some members of the student body that members of the Publications Board are responsible
for this entertaining publication. Unfortunately that is not true. No member of the Pub-
. lications Board would attack the very paper
on which he works as the "Canyessey" did the
"Ubyssey."
Moreover, if the editor and members of the
staff of the sports page have any criticism to
make of Varsity sports they will do it through
the Ubyssey and not hide their opinions and
prevent reply by issuing anonymous bulletins.
Part of the first issue of the Canyessey was
devoted to Football and for the benefit of those
members of the student body who did not receive a copy we reprint the article.
'"You must support the Football Team!'
they cry: Senior Managers, Junior Managers,
plain ordinary managers (they're the one that
do the work), the Ubyssey, (sport editors, assistant s.e.'s, et al.), the Pep Club and Pinky
Stewart. Yet despite their febrile ballyhoo,
that mythical creature, the average student,
cannot be blamed for fingering his already depleted pocket-book and murmuring feebly,
'Why?'
" 'Why should I, burdened now with too
much expense, pay out my hard-earned dimes
and quarters to see such fiascos as the late
lamented game, in which Bellingham Normal,
with a third-rate team, beat us so badly that
the whole Commerce Faculty sat up all night
calculating the final score (finally announcing
that it was 44 to 0); pay to watch the Americans pile up first down after first down in
monotonous succession, while the Varsity
team, woefully undertrained, stood powerless
to halt them, entranced by the invaders' superior technique.
" 'Or why should I attend such a game as
that of November 5th, (true, the score was only
11 to 1 on that occasion) when a Varsity man,
playing too far up the field, had to chase a
bouncing ball until Alberta were upon him;
and to add to this he fumbled it and lay flat
on his back in the mud while the opposition
galloped to a touchdown?'
"The average student (and his 899 brothers and sisters, who attended the latter
game,, has a perfect right to these questions.
And yet the complex organization (mentioned
above), that attends to the publicity and business end of the racket, insists that if a student
does not go to the games, and keep on going to
all the games, he is lacking in that ethereal and
apparently essential quality locally known as
'college spirit.'
"Even assuming that it is his duty to attend the games and wildly cheer 'the boys out
there on the field who are giving their all for
Good Old Alma Mamie,' isn't it sound business
tactics to give the poor sap an even break, by
insuring that the highly-touted games he attends are at least mediocre?"
The third paragraph of the above quotation
makes a personal attack on one of the members of the team and we wish to decry such a
method of criticizing teams. Even the best
players make mistakes. That the young man
in question is one of the better players is conceded even by the two evening downtown
papers who praised his playing in the game
against Alberta. The rest of the article is to
a certain extent true.
—Sports Editor
IS  IT WORTHWHILE
TO SUPPORT
AMERICAN   RUGBY?'
A great deal of Ballyhoo has been advancec
in favour of Canadian Rugby and its intercollegiate games. It would appear that the team
was undeserving of such support. The team
has yet to win a game ,this year. Not that this
paper supports only those teams that are
making good. It is possible for a team to have
an off year. Unfortunately Canadian Rugby
has had an off year for the past 5 years. Teams
representing this University in Canadian Rugby cannot even compete with fellow Vancouver athletes, let alone competing with colleges
from the States.
All the local moguls in Canadian Rugby
have told the student body how this year's start
in American Intercollegiate rugby is only the
beginning that will lead to U.B.C. entering the
Pacific Coast conference. U.B.C. stands about
as much chance of entering the Pacific Coast
conference as a negro stands of getting into
the Klu Klux Klan. Rugby as played by Pacific Coast Universities is a highly organized
business. So highly organized that the Carnegie Foundation made an investigation condemning intercollegiate football in general and
in particular the colleges to the immediate
south of us. Washington State, one of the
members of the Pacific Coast conference, was
branded as being the worst example of a university importing players.
Apparently for this college to enter into the
sacred circles of the Pacific Coast conference
it would have to follow the suit of the American colleges and import players. These imported palyers would be provided with jobs
by football mad alumni who wish to see their
their dear old Alma Mater distinguish itself in
letic arenas. It would be necessary to obtain
a coach. Coaches are an expensive item in
any college budget. In the United States
coaches are so highly paid that in most cases
they receive more than the average faculty
member. Knute Rockne is supposed to have
received a higher salary than the President of
United States.
The coach who is at present guiding the
faltering footsteps of our athletes through the
intricacies of playing American Rugby receives $100.00 a month. This sum is paid at
present by the Canadian Rugby Club. We do
not wish to criticize Mr. Moe himself for coaching this team because that is his profession.
However, there are many students out at this
University who find it difficult to pay their
way through U.B.C. Quite a few of them are
brilliant students who, given the opportunities, would make a name for themselves and
this university. It might be better to encourage worthwhile contributions to the learning
of this world than a sport which to succeed
must become a business.
The coach of Bellingham State Normal
team has 150 male students to draw from. He
stated that the reason his team was so good
this year was that he had been able to obtain
jobs-for several of the players. Apparently
even to compete in the fifth rate league that
our team is now entered in it is necessary to
assist deserving athletes. How much better it
would be to assist deserving scholars.
If the devoted supporters of this University
wish to help it we suggest that they do so by
bringing students here, not athletes and
coaches.

This is Dick's third year in senior
company, as a guard. He and his
teammates have been practising hard
this week with the hope of beating
Province. For all co-eds interested
he  will be at the dance afterwards.
Soccer Eleven Will Play
Young Liberals Tomorrow
Intent on arousing student interest in the hoop game, the
basketball club have arranged an interesting program for Saturdays game in the U.B.C. gymnasium. The game will be against
the sharp-shooting Province squad; and it will be preceded by a
preliminary by the Varsity Senior B girls' team. Following the
game there will be a dance on the gym floor. It is rumored that
Jack Emerson will provide the music and that the W.U.S. will
run a refreshment booth. The game and dance are part of the
Homecoming program. Since the English Rugby game has been
called off, a large number of grads will be in attendance.
••The Thunderbirds will have a
tough nut to crack in thc Province
team on Saturday. The Dominion
Champs were taken to town by the
V.A.C. squad last Saturday, and they
are determined not to lose two in a
row. On the other hand, Varsity has
been practising hard during the last
week, and they are reported to be
in excellent shape. Both these teams
are now one game behind the Vacs,
in league standing, so that the winner of this game will be in a tie for
the top spot. Hence, this is a "croo-
shal" game.

All First Division English Rugby Gaines Postponed So
That Sport Fans Can See Meralomas Roughriders Game
Saturday brings another stiff game
for the Senior Soccer squad. This
week the opposition is being provided
by Young Liberals, a raoidly rising
aggregation in this city. The game is
call-ed for 1:30 at Cambie Street
grounds, under the whistle of Referee Hunter.
The Liberals arc a hard fighting
gang and will prove a tough nut for
the Thunderbirds to crack. They are
a team determined to win at any cost.
In their game with Vikings last week
they absolutely wrecked the Norse
machine, several of the Vikings having to bt carried off the field.
Their somewhat "wicked" reputation does not mean a thing to ' the
Thunderbirds for while most of our
games to date have resulted in draws
we have yet to lose a game.
The boys are pretty certain of the
result cl this crucial game, but just
to cinch matters, Manager Frank
Templeon has equipped each of the
playeri with a rabbits foot.
The Varsity squad is still bothered
with injuries. Paul Kozoolin is troubled with an infected foot and it is
doubtful if he will be able to play.
Laurie Todd is definitely out of Saturday'.! game with a badly spra'ned
ankle.
Max Legg, who was formerly one
of the ugular team, and one of the
Juniors will  replace the  "crocks."
The team will be made up of the
following players- Greenwood, Dickson, Sutherland, Thurber, Wolfe,
Stewart, Irish, Munday, McDougall,
Dave Todd, Legg and Kozoolin.
The second division team will play
Shores Jewellers at Eburne Park at
2:30.

meet of the Anglican College will be
held on the Varsity oval. Th-e competition this year is expected to be
keen and Chris Loat, last year's winner, will most likely be hard pressed
to recapture the honours. Walkem,
Ellis and Humphrey are looked upon
as dangerous rivals and will be out
to capture a prize or two.
