Issued Twice Weekly by the Students' Publications Board of The University of British Columbia
No. 8
CNR. Announces
Reduced Fares
For Holidays
Reductions  Available to  Staff  and
Students—Ample Stop-Overs
Reductions of round trip passenger
fares to first class one-way fare and
one quarter between all points in
Canada will be offered to university
teachers and students during the
Christmas vacation. This Is the announcement which is contained In a
letter just received by President
Klinck from Mr. K. E. McLeod, district passenger agent In Vancouver
. for the Canadian National Railways.
These reduced rates will be applicable to all "non-resident teachers and
student* attending schools and colleges in, Canada, who desire to return to their homes during the Easter
and Christmas-New Year holidays."
The return fares will be calculated
on a basis of the first class one-way
fare plus one quarter in all cases excepting where the resulting charge
amounts to less than one dollar, In
which case no reduction will be allowed. Thus the minimum fare
chargeable under this method of .reckoning will be one dollar, unless the
regular one month round-trip fare is
less than one dollar; In such cases the
one month rate will apply.
Assurance is given in the letter that
suitable dates of ticket sale and
ample return limits "which will be
sufficiently wide in scope to cover
the Vacation periods of tiie principal
educational Institutions and public
schools" will be arranged. These dates
of sale and return limits are to be
designated by the Canadian Passenger
The low holiday rates will be available only upon the surrender, ot a
school certificate of the standard form
Issued by the Canadian Passenger Association, and bearing the signature
of the principal of the school or col-
lego In which the applicant Is a student. Certificates for the above purpose will be distributed to the various schools and colleges ori appuca-
tlon to the Secretary, Mr. 3. B. Parker, 320 Union Depot, Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Out of town students who wish to
spend the Christmas-New Year vacation at home will find that under the
new regulation they can .do so at a
considerable saving over former costs.
For example, If a person lives in the
northern part of the province he ordinarily has to pay a return fare of
approximately fifty dollars. The same
trip will now cost little over thirty
dollars, resulting in a net saving of
neary twenty dollars. All outside students going home for Christmas will
benefit in similar proportion.
While the official announcement of
these reductions'comes/from the Canadian National Railways, It Is to be
noticed that it distinctly states that
the "Canadian Passenger Assoclaion"
(of which the Canadian National Is
only one of the members) has approved and Is administering the new
To Feature
Furrow Fest
Student farmers will have a chance
to prove their ability when the first
plowing match to be held on the campus takes place on the afternoon of
Wednesday, October 21st.
Out on the big field which runs
parallel to 10th Avenue, eastward
from the soccer ground, a ttrip of
stubble has been left unturned. Here
it is that the,'back to the land' advocates plan to demonstrate to the world
In general and to skeptical artsmen
in particular that they know how to
turn a 'mean furrow.'
It is rumored that candidates for the
competition have been searching
frantically in the Encyclopaedia
Brltannica for the descriptions of the
oldest of farm implements, while heated arguments as to the meaning of
'gee* and 'ha' may be heard at any
time in the Aggie Common room. Occupational students, whose practical
qualifications are generally admitted,
are holding their heads a little higher
and walking with a suggestion of a
swagger these days.
Knowledge of the plow, handling of
team, approach and end of furrow,
Mr. G. S. Stairs Clears Up Points In
Connection With Application
For Famous Award
Heads Musicians
G. S. Stairs, K.C., published an
article in a recent Issue of the McGill
News on Rhodes Scholarships, setting
forth their purpose and clearing up
points on which there might be some
doubt in the minds of students.
C. K. Allen, sometime professor of
Jurisprudence at Oxford, has been
appointed Oxford Secretary ot the
Rhodes Trust, succeeding Sir Francis
Wylie, who has held the position since
the institution of the Scholarship. Mr.
Allen has also been Warden oi Rhodes
House for the past two, years.
One erroneous belief is corrected by
tho statement that students n Arts
and Law are not the only ones who
may profit by the opportunities afforded to Rhodes Scholars.
Mr. Stairs says a few words about
the farslghted generosity of Cecil
Rhodes and the requirements for candidates for these scholarships. Rhodes'
Idea was to bring together young men
.   ,   ..        .     ....     -1 at Oxford from the Dominions, British
uniformity  of depth  and widUi  of^j^      ugA   an<1  0ermanyi  for
furrow, stralghtness and set up are
the principle points which will decide
the winner. Competition will be both
Individual and Inter-claw. Judges
will' be: Professor Roving and Messrs.
Deslaurier, Webster and Gardiner.
In the Library
Students are asked to look up their
books in the alphabetical reserve list
after consulting the general card index. In this way they can see if the
books they require are on reserve,
and can save the library staff time
and trouble in giving them this information, and can save themselves
from having to stand In line only to
be told that their books are on reserve.
A partial list of the new books added to the library during the past
two weeks Is as follows:
John Gabriel. Sister—Principles of
teaching in schools of nursing. Chap-
puzeau, Samuel—Le theatre francois.

Pacific Area
Committee Plan
Winter Program
The great interest aroused in both
Oriental and Occidental groups on the
campus by the Pacific Area Student
Conference held last June at Bowen
Island, is to be continued this term
by a short series of four evening
meetings to be held on Oct. 23, Nov. 6,
20, and Dec. 4.
The gatherings will be addressed by
prominent Vancouver speakers on the
historical and cultural background of
Japan, and have been arranged with
a view to satisfying to a certain degree, the need for a more enlightened
and intelligent grasp of Oriental culture and problems. A similar series
will be held next term on "China."
The first meeting will take place
on Oct. 23 at the home of Mrs. A.
Gibb, 3845—36th Ave., West, and will
be addressed by Prof. W. A. Angus.
Any students desiring to attend are
asked to give their names through the
letter box or otherwise to the secretary of the Pacific Area Committee,
Miss Katie Thiesser, before Friday,
Oct. 22.
Tho Committee trusts that both
Oriental and Occidental students, who
aro interested n the furthering of
friendly international contacts on the
campus, will take full advantage of
these meetings.
then* mutual benefit, and to be a force
for good in the world. He required
them to. have four qualities, namely
(1) Literary and'scholastic ability and
attainments, (2) Qualities of manhood,
truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of 'the weak,
kindliness, unselfishness, and fellowship, (3) Exhibition during school days
of moral force of character and of
instincts to lead and to take an Interest In his schoolmates, and (4) Fondness for and success in manly outdoor
sports such* as cricket, football and
tho like.
With regard to the first he stressed
the fact that the scholar is expected
to educate himself in large measure
in Accordance with the Oxford system.
His success depends on his ability to
think constructively and critically on
the subjects studied, and to relate
thought. He should have active Intellectual interests outside his chosen
field. The fourth implies playing the
game In a sportsmanlike manner
rather than success in winning University letters.
The scholarships are worth $2000 a
year, and are tenable for three years.
Tho first two years must be taken at
Oxford, though the third may be completed at another Unverslty.
"In Canada a candidate must be a
British subject with at least five years
domicile in Canada, and must have
passed his nineteenth but not his
twenty-fifth birthday on October 1st
of the year for which he is elected."
The author points out that no restrictions are imposed upon a Rhodes
Scholar's choice of studies. "He may
read for a number of studies ....
he may enter for one of the so called
diploma courses in special subjects,
or if qualified by previous training,
may be admitted' to read for advanced
degrees or obtain credits for partial
In answering the question as to
whether a student can fit the three
years at Oxford into his chosen
course, Mr. Stairs takes Medicine as
an illustration, saying that the five
to seven year course begun at another University may be completed
there or at London,
Fair Co-ed
This year's energetic president of
the Musical Society is Bob Brook. He
will be remembered for his performance in the "Garden of the Shah" in
which he played the title role, and
for his ercellent rendition of the difficult character of thc .Major General
in the "Pirates of Penzance" last year.
He is planning another production of
Gilbert and Sullivan opera for his society this year.
The Committee on Fraternities announces that all questionnaires must
be in by the end of the month, as a
final report is being drawn up for
the Alma Mater Society, Only 125
questionnaires have been returned out
of 600 distributed.
Senior Classes
To Visit Grave
Of Dr. Wesbrook
Arrangements have been completed
for the annual visit of the Senior Class
to the grave of Dr. F. F. Westbrook
this afternoon.
Transportation is in charge of Bud
Cook, and the program usually consists of an address by the honorary
president of he Senior Class, who also
places a wreath on the grave. Dr. Angus is this year's honorary presdent.
The ceremony is an annual one held
on the death anniversary of the first
President of this University.
During his years of office from 1916
to 1918, Dr. Westbrook was so unselfish in his devotion to the cause of
furthering the welfare of the University of British Columbia, that it is
beleved that the resultant strain was
one of the causes of his death,
The wreath is on exhibition in the
Library this morning.
Juniors Elect
Jack Ruttan
Jack Ruttan was elected President
of Arts '33 to fill the vacancy left by
the resignation of Jack Turvey, and
Bernard Jackson was elected Treasurer, at a meeting of the class held in
Arts 100 Friday noon. Vice-president
Betty Jack was in the chair.
The- business of the meeting was
carried out fast and furiously, the
chairman forgetting to take a vote
ther this is an example of the much
touted "railroading" that Is heard so
much about falls to be made evident
from the evidence.
The customary lack-adaisicalllty ot
classes was shown by the failure to
nominate anybody for Athletic Representative*. For this purpose a meeting is being held in the near future.
The question of a Valedictory Gift
committee was not broached.

The judging teams which are to be
chosen tonight will compete In judging contests to be held in Portland
next week. Two teams, Dairy Products judging and stock judging, will
travel south.
Co-eds of today must be careful
of their "Walk In life," for behold,
one in our midst has been seen walking across' the Campus and presto-
she is picked as a model for the
Fashion Show. The lucky girl to be
asked by one of the buyers of the
Hudson Bay Company was Frances
Darling, member of Commerce '33.
Franqes makes the thirteenth girl of
the chosen few who are to act as mannequins at the Fashion Show put on
by the Women's Under-graduate Society.
The same display last year realized
some 1300.00 for the Women's Union

patronized this year.
It is expected that nochalant University men will be on hand to give
their opinion of the "sweet young
things" as they drift gracefully past
tho tables in the Georgian room on
Friday night. Saturday, however, will
bo given over to the women who will
consider the Empress Eugenie trend
of the gowns being modelled.
Over the week-end we have seen
pictured a few of the charming
models as they appeared in the
French Room after their first fitting,
in the charming velvets, silks and
furs that they will wear on Friday
and Saturday.
Tickets at 75e will be sold by the
members of the W. U. S. executive
and tea will be served during the
course of the entertainment.
Astronomy Branch
May be Formed On
University Campus
An organization meeting for the
purpose of establishing a branch of
the Royal Astronomical Society of
Canada at the University will be
held tonight in Science 200 at 8 o'clock. Interested students are Invited. Knowledge of astronomy is
not necessary.
Fifty members are required before
a charter can be obtained. At a recent meeting over ,thirty professors
and citizens signified their intention
of joining.
Branches of the Royal Society have
been established in all the principal
cities of Canada. In Toronto the society was instrumental In obtaining
an observatory larger than the Dominion telescope at Victoria.
Students' Council at a meeting last
night confirmed the stand taken by
thc Basketball Club to definitely
withdraw from the V. and D. Basketball League. The Club will therefore
open negotiations to enter the G. V.

Repair Bills
For Breakage
Campus breakages from January to
April, 1931, mount to $177.81, for which
the Arts and Science activities seem
chiefly responsible. Much damag's
was done in the Science Buildings.
During January hat and coat hooks
were removed from the Men's lockers,
stools' and blinds were demolished,
glass in the Applied Science Common
Room was broken, and the automatic
water cutout of Appied Science 231
was seriously damaged. In February
glass and chairs were broken in the
Applied Science building.
The principal breakages for the beginning of March centred around the
Mechanical and Mining Buildings.
Glass was broken in the windows and
doors of each, as well as in the lab.
of the Mining Buildings. After March
24, attention seemed to focus on the
Applied Science Building, ending in
repairs to blinds, windows, stools, and
chair arms.
The lights and windows of the Gym
needed constant attention, and were
repaired fourteen times between January and April. Glass was broken in
a carrol of the Library, and in a case
in the Cafeteria.
The Auditorium building also came
in for its share of expenses. The glass
door was damaged, the window of 312,
and also the dressing-room lights.
Various repairs have been needed in
the Pub. Office (206), new gluss and
chairs in February, and two new windows In March. In April it was practically redecorated.
Expenses from September have been
light, a glass door in the Auditorium,
and the Arts-Science fight being the
only Items. The Arts-Science tight
of 1931, which took place on Wednesday, Oct. 7, Is revealed to be the most
economical on record. The total expenses come to $10.95. Following the
decree of the Students' Council, this
will be born by Arts as the attacking
faculty, and will set each Artsman
back about five cents. It will be deducted from caution money. The Arts-
men will come off considerably better
than the invading Red-Shirts ot Inst
October, who, due to a little adventure with the table in the Arts commons, ran up a bill of $61.30.
No serious damage was done to the
furniture this year. Botn faculties
confined themselves chiefly to showers of antiquated eggs and a free-for-
all, in which honours w«rc pretty
evenly divided. The $10.95 will be
paid to the janitors who were obliged
to come back after hours to remove
the egg-stains from the walb, floors,
and seats of the Arts 100 room.
Relations Club
Aims Described
The purpose of this series of articles
is to stimulate in the student body
of the university an interest in international affairs, and the club dealing with that subject. In this article,
the origin and purpose of the International Relations Club will be discussed.
"The International Relations Clubs
are groups of men and women organised under the auspices of tiie Carnegie Endowment for Internatonal
Peace in universities, colleges and
normal schools for the study and discussion of international affairs." In
the words of Nicholas Murray Butler,
"the purpose of the Endowment In
undertaking this work is to educate
and enlighten public opinion. It la
not to support any single view as to
how best to treat the conditions which
now prevail throughout the world,
but to fix the attenton of students on
those underlying principles of international conduct, of international law
and of international organisation
which must be agreed upon and ap*
plied if peaceful civilization is to con*
The success of the movement may
be judged from the fact that tha academic year 1929-30 opened with a re*
cord of 178 clubs in the United Statea,
with many others functioning la Europe, Australia, Canada, India, Naw
Zealand, South Africa and the Orient
To aid the clubs in their studies, they
are granted each year a number of
books by the Endowment, those of
last year including: The Old Savage
in the New Civilization, by R. B. Fos-
dlck; Civic Training in Soviet Russia,
by S. N. Harper; Labor and Inter*
nationalism by L. L. Lorurn: and
others, all dealing with varied and interesting topics.
In addition, the work of the clubs Ig
much enhanced by national and in*_«
national conferences to which tht International Relations Ciuba

various clubs and satisfy Ik*
for first-hand information on
tonal subjects.
Past Lecturers Include such noted
personages as M. Perre de Laux, Dir*
actor of the Paris Information Ot$et
of the League of Nations; Baron Al-
phonse Heyklng, former Russian Consul-General In London, and now at
the University of Geneva; General
Tasker H. Bliss, retired, and American
Delegate Plenipotentiary to the Peace
Conference and others of equal distinction.
Thus one can realize the value, significance, and world-wide scope of
the International Relations Clubs. The
position that the International Relations Club of this university enjoys
may be judged from the following
lines from the annual report ot the
director, our club being one of tha
few mentioned: "Mr. James A. Gibson, Secretary of the International
Relations Club at the University of
British Columbia, has sent in an Admirable First Annual Report of tho
activities of the Club. Mr. Gibson
was one of the eleven members of tha
Club who attended the Northwest
Students International Conference."
Membership to this club is open to
students who show a genuine interest
in the purpose of the club, and who
have completed their Freshman year.
i   "
The first meeting of the Parliamentary Forum will be held tonight at
7:30 p.m. In Arts 100.
All students, men and women, who
are interested, are invited to turn
out at this time. Officers and positions will be decided upon, and details of the Constitution explained.
"This is your opportunity to strengthen a new organizaion so that it will
be of benefit to you in pubic speaking and debating."
Welcoming new members to the
movement, men of the S.C.M. gathered together at the home of the honorary president, Dr. A, R, Hutchinson,
on Thursday, Oct. 8th. Informality
was the order of the evening.   ■
After a brief address of welcome by
Dr. Hutchinson, Andrew Broatch
gave a talk on the Student Christian
Movement, pointing out that it exists
to provide expression for the religious
life of university students. As the
student has a characteristic approach
to religion so must he have an organization suited to his needs. Such an
organization is the SC.M. Mr. Broatch
also stated that the local unit of the
S.C.M. is affiliated with tiie National
Movement in Canada and also by
means of the World Student Christian
Federation with students in 2000 colleges In 40 countries of the world.
Following this Fred Jakeway outlined the program of the S.C.M.,
pointing out that the program is dependent on the purpose and is organized to gixe expression to the religious life of the student. The program of the S.C.M,, he stated, consisted of study groups on religious
subjects, meeting weekly throughout
the session, a lecture series held In
the fall and spring terms in which
prominent leaders spoke on religious
topics of current interest; occasional
week-end  camps  during the  winter,

At noon today a party of senior students
will visit and lay a wreath at the grave of Dr.
P. P. Wesbrook, first president of the University of British Columbia. In doing so they
will be observing a custom inaugurated by the
class of Arts '25.
Dr. Wesbrook was president of this institution from its inception in 1916 until his death
In 1918. These were difficult years. Not only
were the problems of organization outstanding
nt that time but the war had created obstacles
which required much time and attention on
the part of the president. It is told of Dr. Wesbrook that he took an unusually personal interest in students and this despite the fact that
lor the greater part of a year before his death
he was the victim of a serious illness. This
Illness, It has been said, was largely the result
of overwork, brought on by his efforts on behalf of the University.
It is fitting that some ceremony should be
Observed which will commemorate for future
generations of students the name of the man
who guided the University through the trials
of its infancy.

"There is a strong spirit of cooperation at
V. B. C.;" says Harry Prevey, exchange stud-
ent, in a late interview.
It is true that in the past the university has
had reason to be proud of this spirit. It can
point with pride to the Big Campaign to West
Point Orey,. to the Gymnasium, conceived and
by student enterprise. Students think
complacently of their magnificent Stadium
drive last year, and sink comfortably back to
drowse on their laurels.
This is dangerous dreaming. Let it not be
forgotten that the Gymnasium campaign was
none of their doing—they who boast so bountifully of undergraduate spirit—much less so
the earlier campaign. Let it be remembered
that the Stadium project is by no means completed yet, and promises to be enveloped in
Stygian darkness, lighted only by the flame
of the efforts of "our impecunious Council."
Is it proven that this evanescent "college
spirit" of harmony and cooperation is a "fait
accompli" at'U.B. C? It is not. Contempor
aries have been kind in their judgment of
U. B. C, but let U. B. C. not commit the error
of being kind to themselves. College spirit is
a progressive, ever-active quality. Left static
and passive, it vanishes like mountain mist.
Let not the present undergraduates congratulate themselves on past achievements—accomplished by their forbear—theirs to "carry
on, to keep things happening, to put a worthy
conclusion to projects already started, and
push on to newer and brighter deeds."
In the absence of truly stirring events
which merit editorial discussion, it behooves
the Publications Board to turn its attention to
those lesser matters that still constitute the
greater part of student life.
The object of the present discourse is to
arouse interest on the campus in a matter
that has for some time occupied the thoughts of
other universities and similar centres of advancement, but has never before been
broached here—namely, the question of affecting some desirable reforms in men's apparel
It must be evident to every thinking person,
of whom, unfortunately, there are not many,
that the dress affected by the men of today is
a distinct survival of the times when woman
wore crinolines and sixteen petticoats, to the
detriment of free movement and healthful conditions.
We are advised by men prominent in the
medical profession that women's dress today is
not only extremely favorable to said conditions, but is also far ahead, generally speaking,
of the raiment with which modern males drape
themselves. Women have attained to such a
degree of physical hardihood that they venture out in all kinds of weather with little
change in their clothing, which is always as
light as possible; but the stronger sex still
swathes itself in warm and clinging apparel in
the summer, and muffles itself literally from
head to foot at the first approach of autumn.
It would be a step towards universal health,
accomplished perhaps through survival of the
fittest, if men of this advanced institution
would lead their brothers in this movement
by adopting such radical changes as may be
suggested at a later date in this proposal for
men's dress reform.
Recently J. Butterfield, columnist of The
Daily Province, expressed a somewhat violent
opposition to initiation at U.B.C, and a letter
in the last Sunday Province sup-
Initiation ports him. The correspondent
Under Fire   terms initiation 'a menace and a
danger when inflicted on those
who are not endowed with the physique of a
navvy,' and speaks of 'abominations and absurdities.'
I never thought to find myself defending
initiation, but these diatribes move me to
something of the sort. I think our initiation is
an undesirable Americanism, and that the
sooner it is abolished the better. As I have
said before, the trend of the times is toward
the mitigation and abolition of these ordeals.
U.B.C.'s initiation, however, is not the inhuman affair that many who know little about
it imagine. It may be 'stupid,' it may have
'absurdities,' but it is not seriously mischievous/ its 'abominations' are mild, and the physical strain is not such that the physique of a
navvy is needed.

The other day a professor rated a class severely because part of it seemed bored, and
said, quite justifiably, that those who did not

Poor Prof. us think about this university
racket from a professor's point of
view. Is the prof, any less bored in the dry
places than the student?
Possibly the professorial life is not an 'appy
one. The writer of 'A Professor's Reverie' did
not think so:
I am a Professor now.
Year after year I deliver the same lectures
To fifteen crescents of stupid faces.
God. how I hate those faces.
They seem to get more stupid every year ....
Year after year I deliver tha same lectures,
■ And the students take them down
In twopenny-halfpenny notebooks	
I am a Professor now,
That's why I am constantly repeating myself ...
I have a wife,
She is very fat and very ugly.
I have three daughters.
They are vary ugly but not very fat.
God, how I hate their faces	
I once called my wife a rose.
That was when I was young	
I am a Professor now.
Year after year I deliver the same lectures.
Year after year I make the same jokes.
Year after year the students laugh
At the same jokes.
I watch them.
God, how I hate their faces ...
At the last examination
I ploughed Robertson
Because he laughed too loudly
At the same jokes.
I should not nave ploughed him.
But my wife annoyed me at breakfast
She is very fat and very ugly ....
I have one consolation.
I do not need to work .. ...
When I was young I discovered a Bacillus ....
I am a Professor now ....

This 'reverie' is quoted from 'University
Verses, 1910-1927,' an anthology from the Glasgow University Magazine. Mr. Norman MacLeod, a Glasgow undergraduate now studying
Educaton at this university, has lent me the
book, and I shall have occasion to quote from
it again.
Once more let me add a plea for contributions for the Literary Supplement. Poetry,
articles, essays, short stories, book reviews,
short plays—the Literary Editor wants them
all. Let's show these students from other universities what we can do.
The autumn number of 'Interdependence,'
organ of the League of Nations Society in Canada, contains an article on a recent student
convention by James A. Gib-
International son, U.B.C.'s Rhodes Scholar
Relations last year.   It was the British
and American Students' Conference on International Affairs, called by President Nicholas Murray Butler of Columbia at
the instance of Viscount Cecil of Chelwood,
and conducted by the Carnegie Endowment
for International Peace at the University of
Michigan, July 12 to 19.
Sixty students were present, five of them
from Canada, the others from Britain and the
United States. The article gives an account of
their deliberations. Mr. Gibson took a prominent and enthusiastic part in the Conference. He
visited several cities, and tells me that the
Kansas City Press gave him headlines and a
photograph "(both distorted)." In Moscow,
Idaho, he addressed the Chamber of Commerce
on 'The United States' Tradition of Isolation:
Fact or Fiction?'
It is a pity that intercourse between the
universities of different countries is so slight.
The Carnegie Endowment with ils world-wide
organization of International Relations Clubs,
and by sponsoring such conferences as the recent one at Michigan, is doing a great deal to
promote understanding and good-will between
nations. There are some who sneer at such efforts, but no one with any concern for the survival of our civilization could take such an attitude. The increasing application of intelligence and co-operation to international relations is a vital necessity. Governments, niver-
sities and citizens of means should provide
more money to this end, and student conferences are important elements in this movement. Staying at home mentally and physically, treasuring false notions and conjuring
up bugbears—that way tragedy lies.

Dear Sir:
It would be amusing were it a less
pathetic commentary upon the Library officials that since tha inoeption
of the University at Point Grey such
a large number of the seats have
gone without rubber tips to deaden
the sound ot their being pulled forward and pushed away from th"
tables. It appears a wiser and more
dignified policy to make large expenditures for grandiloquent "Silence" signs than to make a little- expenditure for a really effective remedy for a large part of the noise in
the Library.
In all seriousness, I suggest to the
graduating claw that as part (or
whole) of their gift to the University they present the Library with
rubber ends for the chair-legs. It's
the only way we'll get them.

notes) —I am here.. .er.. J am here
(voice from the back, 'Encore') That

Is," he explained with a onulo, "I
mean, of course, Junior Member. Is
there a batter man to vote for? 1 ask
you with tears In my eyes." Here Mr.
Zilch lent reality to his statement by
blowing his nose. After he had
helped revive the people in the front
row in hla well-known generous
manner, he resumed. "Is there a
better man to vote for?" "You said
that before," remarked an observant
statistician. "So I did" beamed Mr.
Zilch, graciously. "Ladles and gent-
tlemen, you can't vote for anyone
else. Mr. Rufus McGoofus Is rhe
right man. Rufus McGoofus Is tlie
only man worthy the post. Not to
elect him would be an injustice to
Rufus himself and an_lhju»tke to
Varaity. Has anyone got a cigarette?"
At this point several more horrified
Science men left, expressing tr.e|r
disgust at the Intended violation of
the Honor System. "Ladies and gentlemen," wearily resumed Mr. Zilch,
"consider Rufus McGoofus' qualifications. He haa passed Chem. 1." The
Muck Editor offers a prize of one
free Issue of the Ubyssey to any
reader who can solve the mystery of
the revelance of this cryptic statement. "Ladies and gentlemen, consider Mr. FcGoofus." "Which reminds
me," whispered an Aggie neighbor
of the reporter, "I haven't fed my
sick cow for a week."
"Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Rufus
Is the best man. Rut I, am better
than he Is! I am a superman!! You
must vote for me!!! I sail shay. . .
er, I mean, I shall say no more. A
cent Is as good as a quarter to a
blind man. Put in the best man. Put
in Zilch.
Here Mr. Zilch sat down. The
Ubyssey representative moved over
"Have you any statement to make to
the press?" he began, "No," said Mr,
Zilch firmly. "Then please say It In
less than four hundred words," mur
mured the reporter, mindful of his
Chief's warning. "I have nothing to
say," repeated Mr. Zilch stubbornly.
"Are you fond of animals?" continued the reporter, "or babies?" Mr.
Zilch looked suspiciously at the reporter. "I resent that," 4ie stated,
"Mr. Chairman, I would like to make
motion that that be struck out."
"Haven't got a quorum," said the
"Well," said the reporter doggedly,
and In the best traditional* movie
manner, "I suppose you are never so
happy as a when you are in your garden playing with the flowers?" "Never," sighed Mr. Zilch, estatlcally. "We
must get some human Interest," burbled the reporter. "Who is your favorite movie actress?" "Madame
Queen," shouted Mr. Zilch. At this
moment the flve-to-one bell went.
And as Mr. Zilch raced the chair
man to a one-o'clock, he shouted out
to the crowd, "Think it over, ladles
and gentemen: Rufus McGoofus for
Junior Member. One for all, and two
for one, and three for a quarter, and
don't forget to vote for Z. Z. Zilch.
The people's logical choice."
Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of the
party. The fair name of R. W. McGoofus is before the public
once more. Mr. McGoofus would ordinarily be ineligible for
the post of Junior Member; but council has waived the fact that
he is a graduate. As opposition, Mr. McGoofus has that shrewd
and calculating (with a slide rule) person by the name of Zero
Zachariah Zilch. There are also some other contestants in the
race for the position of Junior Member, but McGoofus and
Zilch overshadow these. However, a dark horse has more than
once won an election campaign.
The date for the actual voting has not yet been set by Council,
but McGoofus s confident of victory. Mr. McGoofus is supported
by his able campaign manager, Alexis Coatoff, who is a freshman here. Mr. Coatoff is well known in boxing circles. In fact
there would be no such thing as boxing if each member of the
club did not have his coatoff.
Coatoff is a very promising campaign manager, who received
his first knowledge of the game at La_ Boi, in China, where he
received the degree of B. O. From China, Mr. Coatoff came directly to U. B. C.  Good luck to you Alexis.
You can't keep McGoofus down. He has thrown his hat In
the ring again end is out to win. And there it very little reason
why he shouldn't. After listening to his first campaign speech,
I am convinced that McGoofus will be the next Junior Member.
He is a born Student's Councillor. He has the ready wit, the
forceful speech, and the dignified bearing peculiar to the executives of the A. M. S. He is not a snob. He told his listeners
that, during his recent trips abroad, he would have travelled
steerage only he didn't know how to steer an ocean liner.
He sees the humorous side of things. The other day he sat in
the place of honor at a banquet table. In his hurry to reach for
the dish of olives he upset his neighbor's cup of coffee. Any ordinary man would have stammered something unintelligible
which might or might not have been interpreted as an apology.
But not so with R. W. McGoofus. He simply glanced at the
dripping coffee and broke into hearty laughter. In a moment
everyone was laughing, except the man who had had his beverage spilt all over his trousers, and the incident was soon forgotten.
McGoofus knows how to borrow a gown. I've seen him do it.
This is a necessary qualification for any Council member.
I might remind the students not' to confuse the date of the
Council election with that of the British Election. Vote for
rVJcGoofus on October 26.   Keep on voting for McGoofus Until
you are stopped.

Varsity's new super-student, Mr. Zilch, has appeared on the
Muck page after all Evidently he is like McGoofus, he can't be
kept down. When Zilch first arrived at Varsity he wasn't
good enough, for page three. However, in less than a week
he has become famous as the opponent of the great McGoofus in the forthcoming ballot battle. A man with such courage, for1 it takes courage to oppose Rufus, cannot be overlooked
and so he makes his debut into Muck-a-Muck.

Alexia Coatoff
Students' Council announces the
nomination of Mr. R. W. McGoofus,
prominent Varsity Grad. of Itchica-
tion '32, as Junior Member. Although
the position of Junior Member is usually open to "Third Year students
only, Council has waived the point
and accepted his nomination.
One of his opponents will be Z. Z.
Zilch, the man that can do what he
hath already done. A close contest
is ptedicted by campaign authorities.
Alexis Coatoff, campaign manager for
McGoofus, however, states that his
favorite will sweep the field and win
by lengths. There are four running
for the office.
McGoofus and Zilch represent entirely different spheres of thought.
Rufus is an English Rugby player,
Z. Z. follows the Canadian Code; McGoofus plays soccer, Zilch tosses a
basket-ball; McGoofus is affiliated
with the S. C. M.; Zilch is connected
with the V. C. U.; McGoofus is nn
exponent of the Quantum theory;
Zilch is not an exponent of the Quantum theory.
Three years ago McGoofus ran in a
Council election for the presidency
of the Alma Mater Society. This year
he enters the lists again, firm in his
convictions that he will come oue on
top, University students of 1929 will,
remember Rufus W, McGoofus, tho
People's Choice, and his whispeiing
campaign. Neither the Students'
Council nor the "Ubyssey" have any
records on file which give the final
results of that election. McGoofus,
himself, forgets whether he was elected or not.
Campaign speeches have already
been given by two leading contestants. The election is scheduled for
October 26.  '
We Enjoyed
The Quartette
"I stand for liberty, equality and
sororities," Rufus McGoofus declared
In his opening campaign speech when
he addressed thousands of students
in Arts 108 on Monday. "As a member of Students' Council I will endeavor to make these the true principles of citizenship, studentship, or
what have you."
Crowds thronged into the little
room to hearken unto the words of
McGoofus. Hundreds were turned
away. Most of those that did get in
were forced to stand and listen. Some
sat on the floor, some sat on their
hands, some sat on the hot radiators,
some sat on the seats.
McGoofus presented his platform
without hesltatidh or apologies. "The
Honor System should not be abolished," he stated. "We haven't enough
ornaments about the University os
it is."
"No nine o'clock lectures," is an*
other plank in his platform. "Early
morning classes have proven to be a
failure. Half the students are late
and those that are on time are still
asleep. The lecturer, too, has one eye
closed and the outer one shut."
McGoofus also advocates student
self-government and freedom of
speech. "And," he continued, "If the
Students' Council is a governing
body they should have their round-
table conferences. Such get-togethers
are Indispensable. Britain has thorn
twice a week; Switzerland has them
the third Monday in every other
month; the United States has them
every day before breakfast. How
about ourselves? We have a sufficient supply of round-tables in th*
Aggie common-room to last us until
we need new ones."
"And in conclusion" McGoofus took
another drink of water, "I wish to
deny the report circulated by Mr.
Zilch & Co., that I am related to Ma-
hatma Ghandi.   It Is untrue."
We are, we are,
We are tfie Theologs

Mr. Suey in an interview given to

rally to the banner of such outright
scoundrels as Mr. Zilch.
Chang Suey will long be remembered for the Invention of the crime-

Himie 1. Probably he will endeavor
to bring this Infernal contraption into

civilization and also for Rufus Washout McGoofus. Don't forget, "If It's

student should have at least one

Ruggers Subdued
In Double Header
At Brockton Oval
Varsity's English ruggers figured in a double defeat on Saturday when Rowing Club worsted Varsity 8-3 and U. B. C,
lost to Ex Magee by score of 14-3. Both games were in the Miller Cup series. These games place Varsity and U. B. C. together in fifth and sixth places in the league table.
Led by Bobby   Gaul,   diminutive^
three-quarter, Varsity rushed to the
clubber's line soon after the kick-
off. Play ranged back to mldfleld,
but Stobie of Varsity secured, and
found an opening for thirty yards.
On a penalty for offside, Gaul kicked
• goal for the first three points ot the
-   game.
from the kick-off Varsity again
forced the play to Rowing Club's five
yard line. The clubbers then begin
n rally which took them to the other
end of the field. Stobie rose to tho
occasion for Varsity, uncorking another beautiful run, this time for
forty-five yards. The Club forwards
began to use their feet to advantage,
but Stobie relieved with a long kick
to touch. Once more the clubbers
Started a dribbling attack, and a Club
man was held on the line. Leroy of
Rowing Club tied the score with a
penalty kick, the half-time score being 3-8.
Varsity opened the second half as
|hey had done the first, completely
forcing the play. Howie Cleveland,
playing his first game since'his return to Varsity, made a fine kick to
tht 4)ff. Although they pressed hard,
the students could not get over. Play
switched to the other end of the field,
the clubbers beginning a spirited rally Which ended in a touch for Pink-
ham. Len Leroy converted tor the
final points.
Once more Varsity showed their
grit, rushing play well into opposing
territory. Rowing Club fought back
With determination, carrying the ball
forty yards. Within kicking distance,
the Clubbers failed to convert a penalty. With short time left, the students started another spirited rally
which took them to the other end of
**the field, but they were held off at
the corner flag. As tht whistle blow,
Varsity were forcing the play.
Stewart tackled well for Varsity,
while Stobie looked good with his
handling, kicking, and lengthy runs.
Bobby Gaul was as fast as ever, his
tricky runs causing the opposition no
end of worry. The forwards, greatly
out-weighed, found difficulty In coping with the opposing scrum's foot
attacks. The team: H. Clevland,
Hanbury, C. Cleveland, B. Gaul, Stobie, Stewart, Tye, Pugh, Brown,
Weld, Hedley, Rogers, Pearson Senkler D. Brown.
Ex-Magee proved much too good
for U.B.C. In the opening Miller Cup
fixture played Saturday at the Brockton point oval, defeating the students
by M-3.
From the kick-off Ex-Magee forced
the issue and only good kicking by
the U. B. C. backs relieved pressure,
The student threes got away for
some nice runs, but hard tackling
held them back. Phil Barratt took
the count for a minute or so after
blocking a kick. Play ranged back
and forth for about fifteen minutes,
but Art Meroer opened the scoring
for U. ti. C, with a try made possible
by a kick and fast follow-up. Phil
Barratt  missed  the  convert.
Magee again pressed, the ball going
to the University deadline. Ex-Ma
gee missed a penalty, but they kept
on the attack and pushed over for
a try, evening the score. Half time
found the count standing 3-3.
The Kerrisdale aggregation hit a
fast pace to open the second half.
They were not long In taking the
lead, Pallot converting a penalty
kick. Magee forced the play into
student territory, a fine play by Chris
Dalton saving U. B. C. a possible
touchdown. Magee continued to dom
Inate the play, keeping the students
well within their 25 yard area. Pallot
missed a couple of penalty kicks,
but Saundry scored for Magee when
he dashed over from out of a scrum.
Pallot converted. Jerry Hewer closed
the scoring when he went over for a
try which went unconverted.
U. B. C. were outclassed and could
not get going against the hard tack-
ling and weight of the opposing fifteen. Jimmy Moyes at five-eights
turned in his usual good performance, as did Ellis at half. Dalton and
Art Mercer showed improvement
over last week's game, the latter uncorking a kick-and-follow-up game
which he used so effectively last
year. Eric Hamber, Freshman fullback, tackled in his usual fearless
manner. The team: Hamber, P. Barratt, Dalton, A. Mercer, K. Mercer,
Owen, Ellis, Moyes, Mitchell, Mason,
Bell-Irving, Hobson, Nixon, Davidson, Worthlngton.
Varsity's Senior City Canadian
Rugby team finished on the short end
of a 10-0 score in a game with the
Cougars at McBride Park on Saturday afternoon at 2:30.
Two touches, however, were scored
against the U. B. C. team as a direct
result of Varsity fumbles, close to
their own touch line. The Cougars
were decldely the superior team,
making yards continually with line
bucks and end runs, while Varsity
was apparently running into a stonewall line.
The outstanding play came In the
last few minutes of the game, when
Raferty of the Cougars made a sixty-
yard run around the left end for a
Early in the first quarter, Cougars
tried a forward pass which was incompleted, but they made their yards
on a buck. Varsity finally got possession and kicked on the third down
and lost the ball In their own territory. Varsity was attempting to run
back a Cougar kick and was tackled
behind their own line.
In the second quarter Cougars tried
another forward pass which was
knocked down. They kicked on the
next play and Varsity fumbled, giving the Cougars possession on Varsity's six-yard line. The Red-Shirts
crossed the line for the first touch of
the game. The touch was converted,
and tiie half ended with Varsity trying to buck Cougar's line.
Cougars kicked off on the second
half and Henderson caught the ball
and ran it back thirty-five yards. The
Cougars held Varsity, and gaining
possession completed a long forward
pass. Encouraged by this, they tried
another pass which was caught by
Stewart of Varsity who ran the ball
back fifteen yards.
In the last quarter the Cougars
scored twice; Harry Sevlt carrying
over the first time, and Raferty the
second time after a sensational sixty
yard run.
Hagerty, Stewart Hazette and Hen
derson were the pick of the Blue and
Gold squad.

Livesay and Farrent 6-1, 6-0: Yatskin
and Parnell beat Todd and Todd
(seeded No. 4.) 7-5, 8-6, in a closely

lost to Chu in a hard-fought two
hour match, the most bitterly contested of the tournament to date. The
score in the first set became tied at
5 all, and remained deadlocked until
the 28th game, when Chu finally took
the set, 15-13. Price, obviously tired,
lost the second set at 6-3. In other
second round matches, Yoshy beat
Cooke, 6-0, 6-2, and Milne beat Matthews  6-2,  6-4.
Tho semi finals arc to be played
off Wednesday afternoon, with the
finals scheduled for Saturday,
Showing the result of heavy losses
incurred by graduation the Varsity
Men's grass hockey team came out
on the short end of a 3-0 score in
its primary league encounter with
Incognitos at Connaught Park on
Lack of condition was in evidence
among the students as shown by the
fact that all the scoring was In the
second half. Varsity pressed from
the opening and only once during the
initial period did the north shore
club threaten the college citadel. This
occurred when a centre from behind
the goal line was forced into the net.
The tally was disallowed.
After the cross over the Incognito
forward line hit its stride and the
college defense was hard put to it
to keep the ball out of the home circle. The Initial counter came when
Bengough bulged the net with a high
shot which gave Selder no chance to
save. Corey and Lennart garnered
the remaining points, the former with
a fine shot from the wing and the
latter with a flip from a melee in
front of the Varsity goal.
For the students Spurrier and
Holmes were outstanding on the half
back line while Knight and Ban-
turned in good performances at forward.
The team: Selder, Delap, Lee Jake-
way, Spurrier, Holmes, Baker, Knight
Barr, Semple and Lang.
Soccerites Tie
With South Hill
In Fast Match
In a game which showed flashes of
good football, and also saw some terrible fumbles at critical times, Varsity and South Hill drew 3-3 in a
Second Division soccer game at Kerrisdale Park. Both teams missed almost certain goals In the second half,
enough to have won the game for
either team. Varsity presented a
much changed appearance from previous games. Kozoolin and Vollans being out from injuries and Cooke being replaced by Stew Reid.
South' Hill attacked from the kick-
off, but could not penetrate the Varsity defense, and Varsity scored the
first goal, through Costain, on almost
their first attack. Play from then on
was largely In centre field, until 20
minutes later, Keddle hit the bar,
and slammed In his own rebound to
equalize. The score remained one
all till half time, despite some good
work on the left wing by Laurie
After the change-over, Varsity controlled the play and ten minutes from
the start Jimmy Smith put Varsity
ahead again. The advantage was
short-lived, however, for South Hill
quickly returned to knot the count
with a hard drive from the penalty
line. Even play with end to end sal-
(lles continued for some time, ending
when Dave Todd, who had been getting In a great deal of work, added
a third goal to Varsity's total. His
shot was a hard drive which hit the
Inside ot the post. Once'more, however, South Hill came through with
the necessary goal to tie up the score.
Determined efforts of both teams
were wasted through bad mistakes
at crucial moments, the players missing golden opportunities in the goal
mouth. The final whistle found the
score still tied at 3 all.
The team on a whole did not present its usual brand of football, the
changes in the team evidently disturbing their understanding. With
the return of the injured absentees,
next week, revival of form is expected,

Too Many Birdies
And Too Many Part
Varsity's first string team of golfers
took on Magee High School in a
practice encounter Saturday afternoon and found the high school aggregation altogether too good, the
rah-rah boys finishing on the short
end of a 9-3 count.
Although Varsity was without the
services ot Charlie McCadden, U.B.C.
champion, they expected to put up
a much better battle than they did.
President Powell and Ted Charlton
lost all three points to Harold Mc-
Clean and Gordle Livingstone, the
Kerrisdale pair snaring pars and
birdies at random. Harris and Parsons of last year's squad also went
down to defeat. 'Bill Castleton and
Prevost teamed well together to win
2 points out of three. Prevost, a new
man, played the best game of anyone
on the team, while Ernie Pugh, another new man, shows promise of
getting on friendly terms with Old
Man Par. It all the men who played
for Magee Saturday decide to come
to Varsity next year, University Golf
Club will be assured a fine team.
Basketball Club Faces
Critical Situation
The committee appointed to
straighten out the problems of the
Men's Basketball Club has, after
many earnest sessions, finally drawn
up a proposal covering tentative activities of the Club for the coming
session. This is embodied in a letter sent to the V. and* D. Basketball
League, which reads as follows:
Mr. Lynne Pickler,
President V. D. B. L.,
Dear Sir:
We, the University of British Columbia Senior "A" Basketball team,
are hereby making application to
play in the Vancouver and District
Basketball League under a ten game
league system, percentage score to
determine   league  standing.
We are making the request due to
several pertinent reasons.
1. By entering the Vancouver and
District League* we have only twelve
playing weeks as opposed to seventeen which the other teams have; this
is due to the necessity of Christmas
examinations and Western Intercollegiate Basketball playoffs.
2, A twenty game schedule played
under such conditions would mean
for the most part two games a week.
This tends to knock our academic
standard down and would necessarily
mean the loss of players. As the
primary object of the University is
curricular work, this must be taken
into consideration.
3. The faculty have forbidden us
to play in such a long and Intense
program due to the above reasons,
but consider a ten game schedule
Ideal, taking into consideration both
academic and extra-curricular work.
If we are allowed to play in your
league under such conditions we
would undertake to go through the
regular playoffs and subseqeunt dominion playdowns in the event that we
win. In a twenty game league the
faculty would give no consideration
to the team in event of playoffs In
so far as this would mean neglect of
studies  during the  regular  season.
You can see then, that a twenty
game schedule would be an impossible undertaking for the University.
Hoping that we can reach some
satisfactory   agreement,   we   remain,
Yours sincerely,
Gav.  Dirom, Pres. M.A.A.
G.   M.   Shrum,   member   basketball
R.    A.    Davis,    member    basketball
Lome    Falconer,    Men's    Basketball
At a meeting held on Sunday, this
offer was turned down by the V. &
D. moguls who decided that the
league could not pass the Students
into the playoffs on the basis of a
ten game performance. This means
that the Canadian Champs will be
unable to defend their title unless
they  can  get   into   the  play-offs  by
Varsity's senior Canadian ruggers
took things a bit too easy in their
battle with Westminster and thus
sank to defeat once more when the
Royal City squad vanquished them
6-4 at Queens Park, Saturday afternoon. Neither team crossed the opposition's line, all points being scored
by kicks to the deadline. This game
was a tussle all the way In the matter of punts since both aggregations
showed strong defences.
Varsity led at the fourth quarter
4-2 and then Doc Burke threw In a
flock of subs totalling eight in all
and they couldn't do much in tho
way of returning the long boots ot
the Dodekas.
Art Murdoch showed to advantage
in the kicking duel and scored three
points for the collegians with his educated toe. But O'Kelly of the Royals, Tlngley and Patterson of the very
same team scored six points In all
for their team making too many
points all together against Varsity.
The students had the best of the
play throughout the ■ squabble but
could not force matters enough to
get up the needed energy for crossing
the line. They apparently felt the
loss of tricky Mclntyre in the back-
field. Varsity's fourth point was
chalked up when the Varsity ends
rouged a Westminster man, and that
ended all the serious tallying that the
students attempted that day at Westminster.
'Dirom showed up well as usual In
the backfield but the rest of the
squad was too lackadaisical and maybe Dirom followed that example
Murdoch was the outstanding player
for the collegians and thus stood
Varsity made six first downs to the
Dodekas twp in the first half which
should be enough downs for any team
to score a try. In the second canto
the Westminster men made nine first
downs to the blue and golds four and
even they couldn't chalk up points,   l
Both teams Indicated that they
lacked very much the punch they]
shewed In previous games. For Varsity, Murdoch, Dirom, Root, Farrington and Morrow played well. The
Royals lacked the services of Webster and Niblo and perchance it was
all for the best for Varsity.

Varsity Junior Soccer team drew
2-all with Victoria Road, Saturday
on the upper playing field. The game
was fast, although many free kicks
were awarded both teams, the chief
offense being frequent violations of
the offside rule.
The scoring was not opened until
after thirty minutes of even play,
when Bradbury put the vlstlors in
the bad with a long fast drive to one
corner of the net. The score stood
unchanged at half time, 1-0 for Victoria Road In less than two minutes
after the resumption of play, Johnny
Mundle scored the equalizer with a
nice shot well out of reach. After another fifteen minutes of fast play,
Bradbury again put his team ahead
when he kicked the ball into an open
goal after the U. B. C. net-minder's
kick had been blocked. From then
on Varsity had the better of the play,
but the forwards lacked the final
push to score.
Varsity women hockeyists were defeated by Ex-Britannia in their first
game of the season at Memorial Park
on Saturday.
The students were not well assembled in the first half but apparently
gathered strength in the intermission
and played very much better hockey
In the second period.
Margaret Beaumont was the outstanding forward making valiant attempts to score. The wing halfbacks, Marjory Lang on the left, and
Marian Brink on the right, played a
good defensive game. The goalie,
Roblna Mouat, was new to her position, but played exceedingly well In
the second half and should be in
shape very soon.
' The line-up was: R. Mouat. G.
Downtt, D. Lawrence, M. Lang, V.
Carl, M. Brink, M. Beaumont, V,
Mellish, E. Allchin, M. MacDonald,
M. Finch. i
Mrs. Brown: "I hope you didn't
take a second piece of cake at the
tea table?"
Bobby: "No, ma; I took two pieces
the first time."
