Student Opinion
Favors New Policy
Of Social Functions
Loss of Science Ball Causes Regrefc—New
Functions Viewed With Interest by Undergrad Executive—"Pull With Council"
Is Cry
Student opinion favours Council's new policy with its re-
vised social programme, interviews with executives and others
actively interested in campus affairs seem to indicate. The only
body which violently disagrees with the councillor viewpoint
is the faculty of Science, which seems to be unanimously against
any curtailment which will deprive them of their popular function, the Science Ball.,
In the opinion of one prominent*
sclenceman, there ar* three main
objection* to CouncU'* reduction in
the aocial calendar.
There wiU be, he maintain*, a
complete lack of the customary enthusiasm in class functions, and the
two formal affairs now on the bill*
wiU be Uttle more than frosh reception*.
Hi* third objection was that CouncU'* proposals should have been
published previous to the Alma
Mater Meeting, in order that studenta
might have had sufficient tune to
consider the chances. "Had this been
the case, I know that Science
would have invited Agriculture to
join with them in one ball," declared
the science representative.
Rogers Upheld
The suggestion of Vic* Rogers, viz
that in addition to the abolition of
Aggie's baU, two class parties should
be cut, one in Science and one ln
Arts, wa* upheld, and the engineer
considered that these changes would
have been more desirable man those
eventuaUy put through by the Alma
Mater Society.
Dave Turner, president of the faculty of Agriculture, expressed himself as ready to back Council up in
their considered policy. "After aU,"
he said, "we have chosen Council to
do their disinterested best for the
Alma Mater Society, and we should
trust them to do so."
Aggies Willing To Sacrifice
He announced the wUUhgness of
the Aggie* to sacrifice their ball if
necessary for the good of the university.

Cider and Nicotine
Feature Frosh
Staggering home after their orgy
of cider drinking anl smoking, on
Friday last, men of the Freshmen Class
shocked the sight of many Fairview
residents. The affair, held at the Canadian National Institute for the Blind,
was under the management of Vic
Rogers and Milt Owen.
Four Nipponese demonstrated holds
and falls of their national sport ju-
jitsu, and many spectacular feats
brought forth rounds of applause from
the spectators.
Dr.  Sedgewick advised the Freshmen never to do what other professors following day in phonetical Chinook,
told them, never to attend any more The location of the convention was

Inaugural Address
Of Va* Institute
"There Is nothing of which you
boast less, nor of which you have a
better right to be proud than your
University," Dr. L. S. Klinck, honorary preaident of the Vancouver Institute and president of the University of British Colombia, told an attentive audience in Art* 100 Saturday evening. Taking aa his subject,
"Some Functions of a University,"
Dr. Klinck deUvered the inaugural
address of the *lxteenth session of
the Institute before a larger a—m-
blage than ha* been present at any
previous opening lecture.
Mental Apathy
"A more general knowledge of the
function* of a unrwatty would prevent people from making adverse
criticisms, which show a lack of familiarity with their subject," the university president stated, and went on
to show that these criticisms arise
because of the fact that all students
taking a university education have
not the mental capacity to benefit
from it. "Many parents do not realise
that the student, to get the fuU benefit from a university education, although full ot ambition and zeal,
must have a* preperequisites a sys-

European Countries
Extend Welcome
To Rhodes Scholar
James A. Gibson, Rhodes scholar

eat in Europe.
In Latvia he attended the Congress
Internationale Etudiants where delegate* of nineteen different countries
sent off into the ether greetings to
any of their fellow countrymen sojourning or living in Latvia. Gibson
distinguished himself by delivering
his oration in Chinook, somewhat bewildering his vast audience, who
thought the native language of Canada was English. He was introduced
as "Dzems Dzibson."
The words of greeting were duly

Discussed By
Historical Club
The menace of nationalism was
treated by Jean Campbell, while a
defence was presented by Wlllard
Ireland, president of the Historical
Society, at the first meeting of the
1032-33 term, held at the home of
Dr. and Mrs. J. G. Davidson on Monday evening.
In presenting a number of definitions of nationalism, Miss CampbeU
declared that her criticism was directed against the exclusive and perverted forms of nationaUsm which are
at the root of most international disturbances, and which reached their
peak in the World War of 1914-18.
Influence of Education
Education was stressed as one of
the forces which moulded nationalism
into its present form. Examples of
educational propaganda taught in the
schools of Italy today were given by
the speaker. War and military service have done much to promote the
growth of nationaUsm in many countries; Germany, Italy, the United
States, and Balkan nations being evidence of the growth of nationalism
through violence. Economic nationaUsm had been productive of much
strife alao.
The limitations of nationalism, intolerance, militarism, seiushness; and
it* effect on the masses, were all
stressed. Its menace is moral, political, economic, and racial in its scope.
"Only if nationalism is a means to
a worthy end," Miss Campbell in-
slated, "can It be tolerated in our
modern world. I think that true nationaUsm ia a step to internationalism," she concluded, "and it is only
in this capacity that it can be endured."

Slow motion fencing with naked

was the next thrill provided by the
Japanese. They returned, dressed in
their national regalia, and put the

Buck Yeo and Dr. Burke were called on to make speeches. Buck Yeo,
genial English Rugby coach, outlined the history of the McKechnie
Cup donated by the present chancel-
' lor. Dr. B. E. McKechn'e, and pointed out that the University had won
it more than an Individual team since
its inception. "Doc" Burke, Canadian
Rugby mentor, advised Freshmen to
feel their way at first, but to take
up some lextra curricular activity,
because they would get more enjoyment out of their years at this university.
Piano, banjo and accordion solos together with sing-songs and yells
rounded out the programme.

meeting of the W.U.S. Tuesday noon.
At the same meeting, Emma Wilson
was elected secretary-treasurer, and
Helen Lowe, vice president.
The W.U.S. policy, adopted for the
mer for the conference of the League coming year was as follows: To aug
ment the W.U. Building fund which
now amounts to over $7,000. to carry
out an activity campaign to get every
freshette interested in at least one
sport; to endeavor to create better cooperation between in and out of town
students; and to pursue a rigid economy campaign in view of the depleted Alma Mater funds.
Miss Bollert, Honorary President,
spoke optimistically of this year's
prospects, saying that the indications
to begin with were very good, one
sign of which was the cutting down
of the number of social events. It was
hoped that this would not mean a
decrease In the general pleasure of
the student body, but a levelling off of
social activity, so that the butterflies
would turn more to the intellectual
side of University life and the serious
students have more social life to balance work and play.

Whimster Traces
U.B.C. History At
Cairn Ceremony
The class of '36 gathered by the
Cairn last Friday, October 7, at 8 In
the morning, to learn from President
Whimster and Dorothy Thomson,
Preaident of W.U.S., the true interpretation of university spirit. They
were assembled for the object of
becoming acquainted with the part
the students have always played in
forming the University, Whimster
Mr. Whimster outlined briefly the
history of the University, Including
it* first mention in 1877, the affllia-

IcGUl, 1906, and it* actual inception,
1018, at the temporary site in Fair-
Great Petition
After the War, since no move by
the government to establish the University at the selected site at Point
Grey was apparent, in the Spring of
1922 the students petitioned the whole
province, obtaining 65,000 signatures
and inducing the government to complete their work. October, 1925, the
new buildings were inaugurated.
Under the Cairn were buried the
65,000 signatures; and part of its composition is a number of stones, each
carried by a student from the Fair-
view grounds.
"The Cairn stands for the spirit of
our University, a progressive, pioneering spirit, a living spirit, as was
shown by the Stadium Fund Campaign, and by the 70,000 signatures
obtained last year.'
Whimster urged all his listeners to
work In the best interests of the
University. 'To get the' most out of
the University, you must put your
most in,' he concluded.
The Women'* Part
Dorothy Thomson addressed her
female listeners. "The Cairn stands
as a reminder of the part the women
played in the great 1922 Student
Campaign," she said. "The women
of '36 are to regard the Cairn as
symbolic of the womens' spirit of
the Campaign."
She expressed the hope of sometime having a Womens' Undergraduate , Building. 87,100 lay in an established fund already, but the sum
was growing very slowly. However,

Russian Communism
Discussed at Club
By Miss Osterhout
"To understand the Communist
Movement we must have a good
background in Russian history and an
understanding of Russia's alms for
the future," said Miss Osterhout in
speaking to members of the International Relations Club at Professor
Soward's  home  Wednesday  evening.
Miss Osternout accompanied a
group of students from London and
was in Russia twelve days. She laid
particular stress on the support and
zeal of the younger generation for
the Communist Movement. An interesting example of this was the revival of the old Russian folk dances
by the young people, at several of
which she" was present.
Marriage and Divorce
The women of Soviet Russia work
with the men. Children over two
months are taken care of in a creche.
Union tickets enable the workers,to
obtain the simple necessities of ...e
at a minimum cost, whereas the
"bourgeoisie" consisting of non-
workers and foreigners buy goods in
the open market at exhorbitant
An interesting view on family relations was given. Marriage and divorce are relatively unimportant
events in Russia, as signature on a
passport is the only ceremony.
Helpless Males
A discussion followed which
brought out many points. Miss Osterhout explained that though Russia is Atheistic nearly two hundred
churches are open. Trotsky Is never
mentioned by the Russian people. The
movies promote propaganda regarding Russia's desire for peace, yet indicate her poUcy of military protection. Regarding the position of
women in Russia Miss Osterhout described an incident she saw on a
road. A capable Russian woman
worked industriously changing a flat
tire while three males stood by helplessly.
Some striking Russian posters were
displayed showing the extremities of
their projects.

Freshettes Gorge On
Olives and Eloquence
At Supper Function
Large quantities of salad, olives,
and ice-cream, though filling, proved
to be hardly energizing enough to fill
the seniors and freshettes with the
hearty power of song on Friday
night, when new women students
were welcomed into full membership
in the Women's Undergraduate Society.
The gift of eloquence, however,
flowed more freely, as the King, the
Alma Mater,  the W. U. S. and the
honored guests were toasted by the
president of W. U. S„ Alice Rowe,
Betty Jack, and Frances Lucas respectively. Dorothy Thompson responded to the toast to Women's Undergrad, and Marjorie Nuthall spoke
for the guests, who included Miss
Bollert, Miss Gray, and Miss Dorothy
Myers, as weU as the freshette class.
Ruth Witbeck; president of Women's Athletics, valiantly attempted to
lead the assemblage in "Hail U.B.C,"
"My Girl's a Hullabaloo," and other
classics, but owing to the fact that
this was the freshettes' first introduction to Varsity sing-songs, the effect was less rousing than pep-meeting renditions.
At the close of the banquet, the
new students took a pledge of loyalty to their university. Filing out,
they registered their names for one
or more activities in a book to be
kept for the purpose, and proceeded
home in buses and street-cars in
which the stronger sex found Itself
so considerably in the minority as
to inspire flight in several instances.

"Studenta of U.B.C., I am ashamei
of you," said Mark Collins after several speakers had risen extolling the
virtues of one faculty as against another. "Last year you were out to instil in the public a respect for your
university. This year it Is just aa
important, though we are going about
it more quietly. No faculty should
come before the university as a
whole." In this he was suported by the
president of Aggie, who expressed
himself as willing to back Council up
ln this cause.
The vote after a recount showed a
majority of seven for the poUcy.
New eUgibiUty rule* drawn up by
Council, less severe than of yore, were
passed without a dissenting voice.
A bright spot in the lengthy report
of the treasurer was the fact that
the A.M.S. stands possessed thia year
of the largest surplus it has seen since
the university opened.
"If the three new upper common
rooms are not used properly, they
will revert to professors," declared
Stu. Crysdale, President of the Arts
Men's Undergraduate Society, at an
executive meeting Tuesday noon.
Professors, although requiring every
available rom, were generous enough
to turn rooms X, Y and Z over to students use, it was stated, and if students do not show their appreciation,
by observing the rules drawn up by
the A.M.U.S. they will be barred from
the new common rooms.
Rule* To Be Observed:
1. No lunching or lounging.
2. No rowdyism.
3. Room X for use of first and second year students only.
4. Room Z for use of third and
fourth year students only.
5. Room Y for use, on occasion,
of the A.M.U.S. Notices will b* posted when this room is not available for
student use.
The main purpose of the new common rooms is to permit Informal seminar discussion, which is not avaU-
able elsewhere on the campu* to the
average student.

Wednesday, October 12, 1932
Bowing its collective head to the storm, known in the outer
world as the depression, the Alma Mater Society has decided
to endorse Council's policy of a reduced social program this
year. This motion was passed on Friday after some discussion
and a great deal of opposition from the Science faculty, which
turned out in strength to support its sponsor, Vic Rogers, in
endeavoring to retain the Science Ball.
The point of view of the science men is readily understandable. It is hard for them to give up what they regard as their
one gesture, and being as they are, the most highly organized
faculty on the campus, makes it even more difficult to subordinate their own interests to those of the university as a
whole. It is a fact to be deplored that loyalty to one's faculty
should imply lack of loyalty to the Alma Mater when the two
come into conflict.
It is open to question still, however, as to whether the new
social program will really do what it is intended to do, namely,
inculcate opinion favorable to the university in the mind of
the general public. Whether the accounts of two balls instead
of three in the society columns of the city newspapers will
really impress their avid readers that U.B.C. is a worthy institution is a problem which only time will solve. At best, the
new social program is but a negative way of influencing p\iblic
opinion. A more tangible form of propaganda is necessary if
the A.M.S. is really out to impress the citizens of British Columbia with the worth of this university.
As far as it concerns undergraduate life directly, opinion
seems to be widespread in favor of the new schedule. Time and
money are both more difficult to come by this year than heretofore. Students are exhibiting unexpected tendencies towards
study, a fact which reduced lecture periods and increased necessity for individual work has rendered more emphatic. The new
program is in tune with the times.
1       by FRANCES LUCAS
Students, ambitious to become counterparts of Ellen Terry
and Henry Irving, are today engaged in the annual try-outs
of the University Players' Club. They are endeavouring to win
admittance to the oldest and probably the most distinguished
extra-curricular body on the campus.
The Players' Club was organized in 1916, the year of the
birth of the University. It's growth has kept pace with the progress made by the U.B.C. It's record, in its field, is as outstanding. To belong to the organization, therefore, may be considered
a privilege, albeit, it involves plenty of hard work.
Interwoven with the history and achievements of the
Players' Club is the man chiefly responsible for its splendid
record. He is Professor F. G. C. Wood, who retired a year ago
after fifteen years service as honorary president, coach, director and chief source of inspiration.
Anyone essaying to fill Professor Wood's shoes would need
a very capable pair of feet, as one wit said. The selection was
difficult but Dr. F. C. Walker has proved that his feet are not
only capable but can stay on the ground. After one year's trial,
it can safely be said that Dr. Walker has successfully carried
on the work of his distinguished predecessor.
One boast of the Players' Club has nothing to do with art
and drama—pure and undefiled by taint of commercialism. It
is the fact that every spring, after production of the annual play,
a handsome surplus is realized. These funds go into the coffers
of the Alma Mater Society and indirectly, therefore, the Players'
Club helps to support many less fortunate bodies on the campus.

traditions and customs and by loyalty to a common past" was provocative of much discussion following the
reading of his paper.
NationaUsm Individual Liberty
He declared that patriotism, racialism, and nationality are all confused
with natloneUsm today, and maintained that nationalism functioning
properly would operate in the large
and imperfect economy of European
affairs very much in the same way
as the principle of individual liberty
operates in any given state. It would
prevent the formation of massive and
conventional opinion which impair
the free play of individuality and af-
Homeric poems, the Attic and Elizabethan drama, and the art of the
Italian Renaissance, have all come
from small states. Small countries
such as Norway, Sweden, Denmark,
and Finland, have given greater gifts
to the world of letters than has the
United States with its immense population.
NationaUsm Fosters  Internationalism
The education and liberty of the
individual citizen is better promoted
in small states than it is in a large
commonwealth. Joint action ot states
is quite possible without thc destruction of national spirit. Enlightened
nationalism facilitates this.
Nationalism and commercialism are
not enemies of Internationalism: militarism is. "It is only on the basis
of triumphant nationalism that an
effective    internationalism    can    be
ford   a   corrective   to  the   idea   that  built," the speaker concluded.
brute force is the only thing which
counts in the world.
One of the greatest achievements of
nationalism is (he cultural development which has resulted from its
operation.    The  Old  Testament,  the
Prof. F. H. Soward, honorary-
president of the society, Dr. W. N.
Sage, Prof. A. C. Cook, and graduate
members of the organization all took
part in the discussion which followed
reading of the papers.
O, O. Goes Odorous
(Not What You Think, Either)
The clumps of roses at the corners
of Arts lawn are delicious these days.
When the wind Is right, one gets a
breath of loveliness from them.
I remarked on this the other day
on my way to the Library with a
companion. "Something for the column," is my favorite saying nowadays,
"Yes," said she, "you could make
quite a few Inches of Varsity
smells . . ."
We fell to considering the number
and variety of these. There Is the
book-y smell of the Library; the inky
smell of the PubUcations office; the
Caf, which really could have a whole
column devoted to it exclusively. I
am publishing nothing ln a derogatory spirit, prospective libel-suers
please note. It ia all in a spirit of
honest inquiry. If there is any proverb I hat*, it is the one about the
cap fitting, so I wttl not quote it
here, but that ia th* Idea I wish to
convoy. (I cannot explain why I do
not Uke that proverb, except that it
Moms to me that people bring it up
st inappropriate time*. Th*y make it
Impossible for me to resent impersonally sundry remarks anent the
und*p*ndability of columnist*).
Another 'Sad' Warning, With Moral
W* w*r* talking about smells. The
most disagreeable one extant is that
which emanates from the exhaust
pip* of a bu* whan you ar* endeavoring to pass it. This odour
would be disagreeable even if it
were not associated with that thwarted impulse. Thus reinforced, it has
all the potency of tear gas. Bus
driver* should have the common
human decency to remember this; in
general, it must be admitted that they
do, but the other day I saw a sad
exception. It moved me to expatiate
through the medium of verse upon
this evil, and produced another Warning Tale, which I hope will be pasted
upon the dashboard of every Varsity
Fable of the Fate of the Recalcitrant
Hark to a tale of low-laid pride,
And justice dealt in measure stern.
The bus that will not turn aside
Ah, what a lesson here will learn!
Al was a driver bold and proud,
Liz was his bus, of yellow fine.
By  all   the  lecture-hurrying crew
They trusted were to make that
O'clock.    But Al by pride was
And kept the middle of the 'Vard,
Though horns and drivers honked
and jawed,
His wheel was firm, his heart was
One bright day Fate crept up behind,
In  form  of  a  Steam-Roller  huge,
Al kept the course he had designed-
He should have sought a safe
For on it came; and just like that—
Oh, this Is painful to relate!
The monster roUed out Lizzie flat,
Ere she could flee her awful fate.
And now of that fair golden bus,

An jaundiced splash Is left to us,
Just at the corner of the MaU.

The Symphony Concert
Allard de Ridder, who told us tales
last week of a Beethoven who scared
cows with weird gestures and wrote
exquisite music when the world was
black for him, conducted a symphony
on Sunday which seemed charmingly
suited to him. Beethoven's Eighth
is as endearing and delightful as the
leader himself, and the fact that he
chose it for his debut "when a boy
out of the Conservatoire in Holland"
is satisfactorily apt.
Such Varsity students as attended
the first symphony' concert of the
season had an opportunity to enjoy
music that was lovely, whether understandable or not. Personally, I
found the second selection on the
programme, by deFalla, almost incomprehensible. The theme would
not work* out the way I thought it
was going to at all, in fact I could
hardly distinguish one.
But the piano-and-orchestra concerto was a joy, especially the second movement, so delicately and adequately done by Miss Steeb and her
co-workers in the strings.
Rushed To Death
The only flaw in my delight at
Sunday afternoon was the distressing
disorder which seemed to prevail at
the booking office, confusion reigning there threatening to reduce the
poor lady in charge almost to tears
on the morning I called for my ticxet.
Hundreds of people seemed to be
asking and phoning for bookings, and
these were being sold and unsold
and resold at bewildering rate. Perhaps the Symphony Society did not
anticipate such a rush, for the Or-
pheum was .well-nigh fiUed with
music-lovers routed from their indolence by the urgent promptings of

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
At the Alma Mater meeting on Friday, Council's proposed curtailment
of the social programme was passed
by a majority of seven.
To my mind this suggests one of
two things: either the student body
as a whole is shockingly selfish, or
the faculty of Applied Science has
such a control over the rest of the
University that It can come within
•even votes of dictating its own
wishes to the remainder of the
It is not pleasant to think of the
A.M.S. as so selfish that it would
lower the University in the eyes of
the public by insisting on a fuU social programme. In fact, I do not
think that the majority of students
was in any way opposed to a cut—
and a drastic one—In our social activities.
It wa* over the abolishment of the
Science Ball, rather, that the issue
waa fought, the strong influence of
it* sponsors being felt insofar a* they
almost succeeded in retaining their
beloved function at the expsns* of
Art* and Agriculture.
"Why not combine the Art* and
Aggi* BaU* because th* asm* crowd
attends both," argued representative
onguMera. "Leave Science intact because it ha* been intact since 1921,
because it has paid for some years,
and because if it were cut, our class
spirit would suffer."
Can anyone imagine a more utterly
selfish way ot looking at the matter?
The Scienoeman'a attitude ia not
only selfish: it is both unfair and
logically unsound.
A faculty ia a faculty, irrespective
ot numbers, and each Jaculty has the
right to equal privileges or, conversely, to equal penalties. Council's
suggestion alone recognized these
facts; therefore It Is to be supported.
Even if one took the point of
view that number* determine a faculty'* right to privileges, Arts (not
counting any of its women, some oi
whom are understood to enjoy the
Science Ball) has a two to one majority over Science, and is therefore
entitled to preserve its own ball before any other faculty.
As for Science's suggestion that it
would ruin class enthusiasm if its
ball were abolished . . !
This argument shows to what extremes organized science-ism can be
carried. Worse, the very fact that a •
platform containing such a plank
can nearly carry the day against both
the interests of the University as a
whole and against its largest faculty,
shows it is high time Arts began
to wake up and realize that a little
organization is necessary. Otherwise
1450 of U.B.C.'s 1700 students will be
at the rather doubtful mercy of some
280 sciencemen.—"J. S."

noon hours only this week. Student*

Exchange wiU be open.

those who is in favor of the new social program. "I believe It Is a mistake to say that the two new balls
will be mere repetitions of the 'Frosh
stampede'," she declared. People are
not ui a position to stampede to anything which costs money this year.
"The point of not using the old
names is a good one too," she added.
"If some faculties have to suffer, I
don't see why one should escape
more than the others.
CouncU Plan Lauded
"The Council Plan is the only fair
solution for the social program," announced Milt Owen, Junior Member.
"It' would not be fair to favor one
faculty or to take numbers into consideration and the only way is to do
away with all faculty balls. We want
to foster a University spirit, not a
Faculty one."
"I can't think of any better suggestion for the social program," said
Ruth Witbeck, president of the W.A.-
A., in favor of the Council's plan.
"It considers the University as a
whole and is the best way out of a
serious  predicament."
"Though the Social programme may
be not quite so nice as last year I
think the two dances wUl be lots of
fun If we give them a fair chance,"
declared Dorothy Thompson, president of the W. U. S.
Presidents of Clubs Voice View*
Victor Dryer, president of the Parliamentary Forum, was emphatically
in favor of cutting down on the program of Varsity functions, opining
that life Is strenuous enough without piling on parties, and that a rest
is even better than a change.
Jean McDiarmid, president of the
Letter's Club, thinks that women
have more say in the affair than is
generally believed. "After all, most
of the women present at the Science
Ball have been from Arts," she said,
"which makes that affair not quite
entirely a Science gesture."
Expressing another generally felt
opinion, she considered that Council
should present a united front in presenting such a vital matter as the
year's policy to the Alma Mater Society, and that it was regrettable, to
say the least, that there should be
such a strong and obvious dissent
in evidence In the ranks of the governing body Itself.

Chocolate Cake
(Note: If support Is strong enough,
this column, devoted to home cookery, wiU—D. V. & W. P.—be continued. Otherwise it is likely to die a
premature death.—Editor.)
Now, as a cook I have my limitations. I am an expert at ham-and,
at flapjacks I recognize no equal (an
ambiguous statement, but let it
stand). I can boil'potatoes, and cabbage, too.
But I am a leetle bit out of my
[depth (five feet four, if you're Interested) when It comes to Widgeon a
la Royale, and things like Endive
Aspic aux Fines Herbes, whatever
that means.
However, and notwithstanding, I
said to myself one day, "With my
superior brain, and coUege education,
surely I can cook a cake." The alliteration Is unintentional, and therefore free, gratis. So I girded up my
socks, and wambled off to a friend of
mine. "Cake?" she said, "simplest
thing in the worldl Just follow the
recipe." So I tootled off home again,
and selected Chocolate' Cake. Now
you see the reason for this title.
I put a large pan in front ot me,
and put into it all the list of stuff
under the heading "Chocolate Cake."
Then I stirred it with a spoon—a
wooden one, mind you. By and by
my eye wandered down the paragraph below the menu—as it were—
of thia cake. I saw th*n that I had
mad* a mistake in putting all th*
■tuff in at one*. I started over
It began, "Cream butter thoroughly." At first I thought I had to put
the butter into a churn and de-
churn it back to cream. But I had
no churn. Then my eye lighted on
"1 cup ot milk"—and everything waa
clear. Obviously, if you mix butter
and milk long enough you should get
cream. So I went ahead. It was a
Utile bit messy when I ceased operations.
Later it said, "add beaten yolks."
I didn't know how to separate the
yolk from the white, at first. Then
I had a brainwave. I fried the eggs,
and cut the yolks out when the eggs
were stiff. But they wouldn't beat
worth a darn.   So I left them out.
Then I hit another stump. It said
"add . . . milk." But I had used up
all my milk in creaming the butter.
However, I said "Milk is good food.
It is healthy, and probably has lots
of calories. Obviously, my cake will
be all the better for another cup of
milk or so." By the time I had finished that part, the future cake was
a little bit sloppy. However, a cupful of flour soon fixed that.
"1 teaspoonful of vanilla extract."
I had no vanilla, so I decided to use
lemon instead. I prefer lemon, anyway. But I could find no lemon in
the kitchen. So, Dad being a ' doctor, I popped into his dispensary and
used a teaspoonful of his Oil of Lemon. I also used a little extra, that
spilled (luckily) into the mixing pan.
Later I found out I had added too
much. Three or four drops, Dad
said, would have been plenty. Powerful stuff, that.
I had no difficulty in "fold in stiffly beaten egg whites." They hadn't
been beaten, but the frying had made
them stiff enough for anybody.
By this time I,was getting tired,

so I decided to leave out the rest
of the ingredients. So I shoved It
into the oven. About half an hour
later I looked in -to see how it was
getting on—and found I hadn't lit
the gas. '
I had half a dozen peeks in the
next ten minutes, but the cake wasn't
getting on very well. So I left it
alone for awhile.
Along about an hour later, I opened
the oven door again. This was a
mistake, so I opened all the doors
and windows in the house to remedy

Stadium Fund
"Donations to the Stadium Fund
Trust Account have diminished considerably In comparison with former contributions," stated Mark Collins, treasurer of the A. M. S. The
largest amount added to the credit
ot this fund is $464 uncollected caution money from the previous session. "The W.C.T.U. donated $48,
and although this seems a rather insignificant sum," continued Collins,
"it would be of major importance if
other organizations would follow
suit." All unclaimed caution money
at the end of this year will probably
be used for the same purpose.

tematic method of work, a capacity
for sustained application to the task
at hand, and consistent practice in
straight thinking."
Dr. Klinck then enumerated the
three principal function* of a university, namely teaching, research,
and extension. Dealing with the prevalent idea that modern students are
not taught to think he said:
Highest Achievement
"To teach clear and accurate
thinking is the main objective of a
university. Inquiring, critical minds
with Intense interest in problems and
with discerned capacity to put forth
effort are immediately discovered by
professors. Such students, when re-
enforced by experience and stimulation to creative imagination so that
they may generalize as well as spec-
iaUze, represent the highest achievement of a university."
The president, dealing with methods of instruction, explained that the
object that professors have in mind
is to place the student in contact
with sources of reference, and their
chief concern is to see that he learns
to think for himself and that he enjoys the process. Hence the student
should cease to regard lectures as the
principal part of his education, and
should realize that the essential facts
are not the lectures or the course of
study, but the benefit he gets out of
collecting his Information and learning to determine things for himself.
Supplementary study is absolutely
necessary to complete a university
education, he stated.
Research Work
Speaking of the other two divisions
Dr. Klinck showed that research wa*
not apart from the function* of a
university, but waa an integral part
of its work, and that to extend the
boundaries of achieved knowledge
was an important function of every
university. Referring to the statement issued by Premier Brownlee of
Alberta to the effect that a conference of the heads of the four western universities might be called in
the near future to see if a larger
measure of confidence in them could
not be brought about, the president
said that, contrary to popular belief,
universities do not try to outbid one
another in the establishment of faculties.
"Although all must possess the
basic sciences, such as civil,engineering, if Saskatchewan establishes a
department of ceramics, Alberta and
Manitoba need not and do not.
Hence a certain measure of co-operation now exists amongst these universities, and It is to be expected
that a lasge increase of the latter
may be brought about as a result of
such a conference."
In conclusion Dr. Klinck stated
that universities were institutes for
the giving of a liberal education, not
narrow specialization. "They are repositories for truth, they are disseminators of truth, they are discoverers of truth."
Purpose of Institute
Dr. Gordon Shrum, the president of
the Institute, Informed the audience
that the purpose of the Institute was
to contribute to the life of the community and to educate the adults in
matters of current interest. He assured them that all lectures given
at sessions of the Institute were given
for the first time and prepared specially for it. The fact that the lectures are free does not mean that
they have not a high degree of excellence, an argumnt'which was confirmed by the enthusiastic response
which was accorded the honorary
president's speech.. Next Saturday's
lecture will be by Prof. H. F. Angus
on "The Kidd Report." Mr. Kidd
has kindly consented to speak at the
close of the lecture.
At Washington State College they
are having organized Frosh-Soph
"battles" with referees and all the
frills. Both classes are organized by
group leaders, who select the heftiest
in their class and decide what tactics
they wUl adopt. Then on the great
day, with co-eds looking on from the
grandstand, the two junior classes go
to it tooth and nail, victory being declared whenever enough damage has
been done.

Varsity Team Much Improved — Esson
Young Scores Winning Play—Buck Yeo's
Coaching Effective
Although up against a much heavier and a more experienced squad, Varsity Senior English Ruggers turned back the
Occasionals by a score of 3-0 on Monday afternoon at Brockton
The Students evidently reaped the benefits of a week's
training under the regime of Coach Buck Yeo, for it was a far
different aggregation of Ruggers that took the field on Monday
to that which opposed the N. V. All-Blacks the previous week.
The threes handled well throughout,*
In Draw At
Royal City
With a penalty goal tying the
score with less than five minutes to
play, Varsity Senior Soccermen were
forced to accept a draw with Westminster City at Queen's Park on Saturday.
Varsity controUed most of the play
in the first half, and obtained a one
goal lead, which they held against
repeated Westminster attacks in the
second stanza, but their fine defensive play went for nothing when a
penalty was awarded for hands with
only four minutes left to play. Following the conversion, neither team
Was able to obtain the winning goal.
Varsity attacked from the kick-off,
and controlled the play for several
minutes until the Westminster team
found their feet and began to take
their share of the play. From then
on play ranged from end to end,
with Varsity having an edge over the
Royal City squad. Finally, on a
beautiful combination play which
started from centre, Varsity opened
the scoring. Munday headed the goal
from a centre by Cooke.
Westminster attacked strongly from
the kick-off, and McOUl and Legg,
at fuU-back for the Students, were
caUed on to make a number of spectacular saves. However, both they
and Frattinger in goal, were in great
form, and Varsity weathered the attack to once more take the offensive.
The half ended without further
Westminster set out in the second
period to even the score, and pressed
the Blue and Oold defense through
most of the half. Varsity forwards
appeared to be disorganized, and
their attacks were easUy handled by
the Royal City defence. However,
Varsity's defence stood up splendidly
under pressure, and saved time and
again. Frattinger in particular was
working well, and on one occasion,
dived full length to shove a hard
drive around the post.
With five minutes left to play, a
questionable penalty was called for
hands, and Gardiner, Westminster inside left, converted with a shot that
gave Frattinger no chance.
Although both teams played at top
speed for the remaining time, and
gave both defences a hot time, neither squad succeeded in obtaining the
winning counter.
McGill was again the best player
on the field, saving sure goals on
three occasions, and turning in a
splendid all-round performance. Frattinger in goal appeared to have
struck last year's form, showing
much improvement over previous
Clement, and Hedley were the pick games.    Legg,   promoted   this   week

against the heavier ex-Varsity forwards.
Esson Young Stan
Eaton Young, tricky three quarter,
who got the caU from the second
division for Monday's game, went
over in the dying moments of the
first half to score the winning try
for the Varaity squad.
The Occasionals kicked off and
after a scrum back in centre field
pinned Varsity in their own twenty-
five. The heavy Orad forwards
forced the pace, but Art Mercer
cleared with a strong fifty yard kick
to touch. The Occassional scrum
men used their weight to good advantage in a steady dribbling attacK,
which put the ball back into safer
Chris Dalton secured at the fifty
yard mark, and go away for the first
open field run, but was brought
down by Richardson. With play
ranging around midfleld, Bill Locke,
ex-Varsity star, opened up a play
which ended by forcing the Blue
and Oold to touch down behind their
own line.
Mercer Misses Drop Kick
After an exchange of kicks the
Student forwards smeared the opposing backs, but lacked the final
push to cross the Orad line. On a
free kick for the Point Orey boys,
Dalton failed to score from 40-yards
out, and shortly after Ken Mercer's
effort at a drop just fell short. The
grad threes handled nicely and ran
the ball to the Student 30-yard line.
However Art Mercer secured from
the loose and gave the leather to
Leggat who was forced on the wing
five yards from the opposing line.
With only one minute to go ln the
half, Esson Young took a pass from
Ken Mercer and cut through centre
for the only score of the day. Dalton
missed the convert.
Second Half Scoreless
Play ranged around mid-field for
the opening minutes of the second
naif. Brent Brown gained possession
from the loose and smeared the
Grad full-back after following up his
own kick. At the scrum down the
Varsity backs got away and ran the
ball to the 10-yard line. The ex-
Students rallied, rushing the play to
centre-field, where Bill Locke ran
around blind-side, only to be brought
down a few yards from the line.
Cleveland made a nice play when he
pulled off a fifty yard run, and then
foUowed up his kick to pin the Occasional full-back at 5 yards from
the line.
During the last few minutes the
ex-Students fought desperately to
even the count but could not break
through the defence of their younger
opponents. The game ended with
the Blue and Gold pressing hard to
increase their lead.

The Men's Grass Hockey team
played two twenty minute practice
games on Saturday at Connaught
Park against Cricketeers and Vancouver and won both games by a
score of 1-0. The team showed excellent form and attacked vigorously
throughout both games. The defence
was good, repulsing repeated attacks
y the opposing forwards.   Some of
e players were new to the game,
but In spite of this, gave a very good
account of themselves.
One of the most glaring and altogether unpardonable defects of this year's student body is the utter lack of college
spirit evidenced* at all games this year. With an enrollment of
over seventeen hundred students at this institution, and student
tickets selling for half price, it is absolutely inexcusable that so
few turn out to watch the Blue and Gold teams in action.
People may cry depression and hard times as an excuse,
but we venture to say that each week, every student squanders
at least the equivalent of the price of one student ticket. Another excuse that may be attempted is the lack of time on the
part of the individual. An answer to this is the straightforward
question: What better way is there for the college man or
woman to obtain the necessary recreation than by attending one
of the games? At the most, it takes but two hours once a week
to take in a sport contest, counting the time for going to and
from the game.
Despite the lack of college spirit evidenced by so many
students, however, it is pleasing to note that there are a few who
do go to the games and who are enthusiastic and willing to give
their support. But what do these students find? Are they
ushered to an exclusive section and organized into an efficient
rooting squad? Are they led in college songs and yells by enthusiastic yell-leaders?
It is most lamentable that the answer to these questions is
no. Instead of a compact section of students effervescing with
college spirit and helping THEIR team to victory by responding
to the yell-king, they find no organization and no leader. They
drift in and sit down anywhere, and while the team is playing
its heart out for its Alma Mater, the students offer a few meagre
words of encouragement.
All we lack is enthusiasm and organization. That is a lot
to lack, it is true, but it CAN be remedied. Where is the Pep
Club? Where are the Pep Meetings? Where are the Yell

Opener 7 to 2
Matching their mettle against the
Meraloma machine, Doc Burke's Senior City squad dropped their first
game of the 1932 FaU Season, 7-2, on
Saturday at Douglas Park.
The only score for the Varsity
team, was a safety touch, by the
other team in the second quarter. The
blue and gold boys certainly showed
considerable form and spirit notwithstanding their lack of practice.
The opposing squad opened with
quite an aggressive, attack and before
the contest was five minutes old, they
had piled up 2 points to their favor,
with a rouge, made by pressing tiie
Point Orey crew back to the line.
Then still pressing the Varsity, they
gave themselves 3 more points with a
neat drop kick by Reg. Meek. The
quarter progressed with neither of the
teams scoring any further points;
U.B.C. somewhat reUeved by Moffat's
fine kicking.
In the second quarter Burke's team
recovered and by forcing a safety
touch scored their only two points of
the game. Half time found tiie score
5-2 for Meralomas.
Play for the third canto showed
Varsity being pressed again at first
but recovering slowly thanks to a
smooth drop kick of Hisettt's and a
couple of completed forward passes
from Simons to Carswell. Meralomas
marked up two more points by a
couple of kicks to the deadline.
The last quarter featured an attack
by Nay in which the CoUege aggregation gained a few yards, and a 40-
yard run by Moffat. The game ended
with the Orange and Black squad on
the 20-yard line and the score 7-2.

Hefty V.A.C. Squad Outplay Blue and Gold
Team in Every Department of Game—
Varsity Line Crumbles Against Heavy
Opposition—Long V.A.C. Drives Are
A Feature of the Play
Norm Burley's hefty V.A.C. grid aggregation outplayed the
Varsity squad in every department of the game at Athletic Park
on Monday afternoon to romp away with a 20 to 0 victory.
From the first to the final whistle the V.A.C. took the offensive, crashing through the line or going round the ends for first
downs almost continuously. Time and again the Blue and Gold
line failed to hold on kick formations, allowing the husky Red-
Caps to smother the kicker and gain precious yards.
> Vanity held the championship
V. A. C. squad to two deadline kicks
ln the first quarter, but in the second period the Burley crew launched
a couple of sustained drives down
the field to make two touchdowns,
one of which was converted, and a
rouge; to make the half-time score
14-0. The third quarter produced one
tally, and another touchdown in the
final period ended the scoring.
First Quarter Unusual
After V. A. C. had made two unsuccessful attempts to start the game,
Varsity was given the bail for first
down in mid-field. On the first play
a bad kick was picked up by a
V.A.C. man who ran the ball over
the U.B.C. line, only to be called
back for an offside.
V.A.C. then took possession of the
pigskin, and a kick by Shields hit
the goalpost and bounced back into
the field. An over-anxious Burley-
player nabbed the ball before it had
been touched by Varsity, with the
result that the ball changed hands
After these hectic first minutes
V.A.C. steadied down to dominate
the play for the rest of the quarter,
Shields and Errington each tallying
on kicks to the deadline.
V.A.C. Drives Impress
Doctor Burke sent in five new
men at the start of the second quarter in an effort to stem the advance
of the Red-Caps, but to no avail.
V.A.C secured the ball on Varsity's
33-yard line and made two successive
first downs before Chodat carried the
baU over'the line for five points.
The convert failed and the score
stood at 7-0.
V.A.C. continued to dominate the
play with their smashing line-bruisers
and flashy backfield. Shortly after
their first touchdown they forced the
U.B.C. and took possession of the
spheriod on their own 25-yard
line. From this point began
one of the most concerted drives seen
on the local gridiron this season.
With centre-bucks, end runs, quarter
sneaks and what have you, the
V.A.C. aggregation crashed and
passed Its way down the field for
four first downs which ended only
because there . were no more yards
to go. errington converted the toucn
to make the score 13-0.
Another drive ended in a rouge,
making the half-time score 14-0.
Varsity Close To Touch
With the resumption of play, Varsity pepped up for a few minutes and
twice came within an ace of scoring.
The first time they recovered a
V.A.C. fumble and made a first down
on an onside kick, to come within
scoring distance, only to lose possession on the three-yard line. V.A.C.
fumbled again to give U.B.C. the
ball on the 25-yard line, and once
again the coUege boys failed by
inches to make downs right on the
V.A.C. line.
V.A.C. rallied for the rest of the
quarter but were held for only one
point from the toe of Shields.
The final canto was pretty well all
V.A.C. Another long drive, featuring
a thrilling 30-yard end run, brought
them in a scoring position once
again. Shields took the ball on another end run for the final touchdown of the game, making the final
score 20-0.

Oval Today
This afternoon at 3:10, the Frosh
meet the Upper-classmen in the annual classic at the Oval, and a big
crowd is expected to cheer the boys
on. Providing the weather is clear,
fast times should be recorded, and
not a few field records toppled.
Heron is expected to do big things
in the broad jump, and there is no
reason why Haddon Agnew shouldn't
smash his own Varsity discus record.
Osborne should do weU in the 440,
if he is forced by Ken Wright and
Max Stewart. In the 220, Chris Dalton, .chunky EngUsh Rugby star,
should give Barber and Stott lots
to worry about.
Olympic Star WUl Officiate
Harold Wright, running mate of
"peerless" Percy Williams ln the last
Olympics, will be one of the judges
this afternoon. Harold, who is at
present studying In this institution,
now ranks as the second fastest
sprinter in the Dominion, bowing
only to blond Bert Pearson of Hamilton. Students wiU have the rare
privUege of seeing this speedster run
on Saturday at the Oval, when he
will attempt to shatter existing records in the 100 and 220-yard dashes.
He should have no trouble since, ln
Nanalmo recently he reeled off the
century in 9.7-10.
Other officials for the meet .will
be Doctor Davidson who has so unselfishly helped the Track Club in
the past, and Doctor Shrum, long
associated with athletics in this institution.
The list of events follows:
3:10—100 yards, high jump, discus.
3:20—880 yards.
3:30—3 miles.
