Meralomas Defeat
In the most    thrilling    ice-hockey
Rime of the season Varsity was de-
ated by Meralomas by a score of
S-B on Friday last. The cold weather
seemed to put the players on edge and
they battled furiously on even terms
tor the whole sixty minutes. The
Blue and Oold team waa weakened
by the absence of two regulars—Cal*
Ian and Smith. Up to the third
period the play was very even and
It appeared that Varsity had at least
an even chanoe to win but the superior condition of the other team began to have an effect and this slight
advantage was enough to give them
tbe verdict.
There was not a dull moment In
the game. Plenty of action and a
constant succession of goals,
kept the few spectators breathless.
The flrst period ended with the score
J-l In favor of Meralomas. During
the seoond period goals came thick
and fast, With the score 3*2 against
Varsity, Carswell seised tbe puck behind his own blue-line, unassisted he
stlckhandled his way up the Ice
through the entire Meraloma team,
and scored on a beautiful shot, lt
was the most spectacular effort of
the evening. Commenting on this
Solo dash the executive and responsible critics of the league judged Car-
swell the best man playing junior
hockey In the city.
For the Blue and Oold Carswell, of
course, waa the star. He scored two
goals, assisted ln two others, and
worked hard ull evening, earning the
whble-hearted praise of the spectators. But the entire team worked
hard and did well. Rhodes, missing
his side-kick Callan on defence, was
perhaps not as effective as he would
have been. His crashing weight and
swerving tactics were a constant
source of worry to the other team.
He assisted in two goals. Harris, who
took Callan's place on defence played
a good game and was unlucky not to
have scored. Thome, besides scoring a goal on his own account, got
an assist. Willis, in goal, played
hla usual dependable game, and can
by no means be held responsible tor
the defeat.
Two of the goals scored by Meralomas were lucky breaks. One shot
from behind tho goal, hit Willis'
stick and bounced Into the net. On
another occasion a Meraloma player
blindly batted the puck through a
maze of players and had the good
fortune to score.

Varsity's representatives at the
Banff aquatic tournament scored four
flrst and Ave seconds out of fourteen
events. They made a creditable if
not a victorious showing at tho meet
on Saturday. Pa,t Halley won the
men's 60-yard race by a narrow
margin, while Kettle Tingley and
Mary Carter came flrst and second
in the ladles' 50-yard.
The 100-yard men's Alberta Championship event was won by Reg. Wilson In 1 minute and 5 2-6 seconds.
In the 100-yard ladies' race there
were only two entries, Rettie Tingley
and Marjorie Peel, who were flrst
and second respectively.
Jack Follansbee ,a 14-year-old Edmonton star, proved to be the sensation of the meet. He defeated Ron-
Wilson of Vancouver in the men's
220-yard swim, and it was owing to
his efforts that Edmonton won the
relay race. In the latter event Reg.
Wilson of Vaucouver and Ian Macdonald of Edmonton were the flrst
team. At the end of the 80 yards
Varsity was three yards ahead. Ron
Wilson of Vancouver and J. McCalg
of Edmonton relieved them and Wilson increased Varsity's- lead to five
yards. It was then that young Follansbee showed his form. Don Tyre-
man was Ave yards in advance of
him but Follansbee was abreast of
the Vancouver swimmer at about half
way and finished up Ave yards in the
lead. Pat Halley of Vancouver could
not gain.on Don Wilson of Edmonton, who kept the five yard lead until the end.
M. Coburn of Edmonton scored 70.7
ln winning the men's diving events,
(iordon Baker of Vancouver came
second with 64.2 points. Mamie
Moloney of Vancouver came second
in the women's diving contest with
51.7 points to the 63.3 of Beth Trom-
bridge of Edmonton.
Snow and ice were unable to stem
the crowd of dancers which thronged
to Lester Barn Friday night to partake of the chicken sandwiches and
other pleasures which contrihuted to
make the Aggie Rail one of the most
successful social events of the season.
Among those present were Aggies,
Scienceinen, Nurses, Arts women, and
Avis men; but Aggies were predominate and controlled tlie proceedings.
(Sarden'a orchestra supplied the music
nnd rendered such numbers as
"Marie," "High Up on a Htll-Top,"
and "Lonesome in the Moonlight," to
the apparent satisfaction of the
dancers. But dance number Ave, a
one-step, proved to be tho most lively dance of the evening, when the
dancers raced and whirled to the
tune of "Jingle Bells," "Clementine"
and other Vanity favorites
The hall wan decorated with blue
and gold streamers. Little attention
was paid to hall decorations which
were obscured by the shadows during
the moonlight dances however, and
as someone remarked, "people were
too busy dancing the rest of the

The .Students' Council convened as
a court on Saturday, February 2, to

of total disregard of university prop
erty, a line of 95.00 was imposed upon

The StudentH' Council wishes to
draw it to the notice of all students

discipline, as outlined by the constitution and the students' code, will be
apprehended by the Discipline Committee and tried by the Student Court.
Council Issues
Gym Statement
The Students' Council has Just received word that the legal authorities
or Pemberton ft Son, the Board of
Governors and the Alma Mater Society have at last agreed to the trust
deed required before a loan can be
floated. The final draft of the deed is
to be rati tied on Tuesday or Wodneeday. The bonds are being printed at
present and will be put on sale lu a
month or so.
It Is now practically assured that
the scheme will go through, although
there is no possibility now that the
structure will be erected before the
end of the present term. Council regrets that technical details have prevented the erection of th. gymnasium
this year.
As a further bit of legal procedure,
the Alma Mater Society must pass
another special resolution before the
bonds are put on sale. That will
cause no actual delay. Notice will be
given in a day or two when such a
meeting will take place.
It is said that the same meeting will
consider the sweeping changes proposed by the Finance Committee.
Varsity Musicians
To Present Recital
Members of the University Studio
Club will appear in the Auditorium
at noon on Wednesday, February 6,
when Avo instrumental soloists will
present an hour for music-lovers. This
program should prove especially Interesting, since all the performers
are students of the University.
The Studio Club ls composed of
those musicians ou the campus who
are able to play or sing good standard selections, and who are willing
to appear at public recitals, or ln
private before meetings ot the club.
Only the most competent performers
are admitted, and as the membership is limited to twenty people, a
very high standard ls maintained.
Those who will be heard at Wednesday's concert are all well-known
artists In Vancouver, and the University should be proud to find so
many musicians or more than average ability in her young Alma Mater.
The program for the studio hour
nn   Wednesday  will  be  as  follows:
1. Piano Solo Solomon Flshman |
"Hungarian   Rhapsody   No.  fi"  -   Liszt
2. Short    address    hy    the    Honorary
President,   Miss   M.     I,.     IlolleriA
Dean  of  Women.

(Accompaniment by Christie Madsen)
Tbe executive of the Studio Club
is planning a second recital, to be
held in the week of March 4th. lt
is to be hoped that the Student Body
will appreciate the value of these
programs, and that music-lovers
will show their Interest by a gratifying attendance.
Interistiiif Experiences Recounted In Address
"The best nf a Journey is getting home" was the sentiment expressed
by President Kllnck to tho staff and students, when they assembled to welcome hint Wednesday morning in the Auditorium,
As soott as the members of the staff were seated on the platform, Dean
Brock welcomed President Kllnck on behalf of the students and staff. Dean
Brock expressed the feelings of   all
The third of the series of noon-
hour recitals to be presented by the
Musical Society, took place on
Tuesday before a large audience in
the Auditorium. Tho assisting artists at this interesting program
were Mrs. Edythe Lever Hawes,
soprano, Ira Swartz, pianist and
Harold F. A. King, trumpeter.
Harold King, who is a member ot
the Musical Society, opened the recital with Rubensteln's "When First
I Met You" followed by The Erlking,
a composition of Franz Schubert.
Mr. King, who always produces a remarkable quality of tone from his
Instrument was ln a few passages,
not quite at his ease. His Anal encore however, "The Boat Song" by
Edward Grieg, left him full opportunity to exercise his command over the
trumpet,    He was well applauded.
Next, Ira Swartz, who contributed
In only a small capacity to the last
noon-hour program, was able to
satisfy loverB of the piano with
Robert Schumann's Sonata in F
Sharp minor, a composition possessing both an historical and musical
Interest. From the beginning to the
end, It is a kaleidoscope of moods
demanding a profound knowledge of
interpretation. Mr. Swartz's interpretation of this sonata was masterly
and enhanced its intrinsic value to a
far greater degree than that with
which it is usually credited.
Lastly, Mrs. Edythe Lever Hawes,
sang three delightful songs, well
within the range of her Interpretive
ability. Mrs. Hawes, who had not
sung in the auditorium hefore, was
well    received    by    all.
The S.M.U.S. executive wish to
announce that the Science Dance
will be held on the evening of February 15 at Lester Court. Tickets for
the dance will be available for
Science men on February s nnd it In
Room 237 Applied Science, Outsiders will secure their tickets on
February 11 at the above mentioned
place unless further not I Mention to
the contrary Is published.
The Sclance Dance has never failed
fi) arouse a great deal of Interest
uinoiig the dance lovers of the Uni
verslty, and this In gront measure Is
due to the untiring efforts of tlie
Science executive who conserve little
effort and outlay to make this affair
the most popular event of the year.

when he said "To-day we all rejoice
on your return home."
He spoke of President Kllnck's decade of continuous work at this university and hoped that after his
well-earned holiday he had returned
At to carry on his great work of
building up this university.
In conclusion Dean Brock expressed
his appreciation of the loyal support
given him bv the students and staff
while he was acting president.
President Kllnck ln his reply to
Dean Brock said "your words struck
a very responsive cord when you referred to the loyal co-operation of
the faculty."
He expressed his appreciation of
the welcome extended to him by the
University in various ways.
President  Kllnck    then    gave    a
brief account of his actions abroad.
Visits U. B. C. Students
While in Europe he saw many U.
B. C. graduates. Among these were
Harry Warren at Oxford, Dr. and
Mrs. A. B. Clark, Miss Lucas, Kaye
Lambe and others at Paris. All these
sent words of encouragement to the
This summer President Kllnck had
his old friend Professor
Boving for his guide. Their object
this summer was "to gain general
rather than specific information."
Their purpose was to read, observe
and interpret facts in relation to
their experience here. No definite
schedule was followed so there was
plenty of time to reflect on what they
had seen and heard.
President Klinck stressed the need
of appreciation ot the background of
people and civilization. His method
of traveling he said makes the
traveller more receptive, responsive
and appreciative of what he has seen.
He told of his difficulty ln obtaining information from the Universities.
Many letters of introduction and also
much energy and resource In applying these were needed. While abroad
ho paid his respect to many men who
In  the  past  have aided  U,  R.  C.
He divided his time among the following subjects In the order mentioned; art galleries, museums,
churches and exhibitions of arts and
In a journey such as this "the
tiling that impresses one most is his
lack of knowledge." In thla relation
thero are, the barrier of language',
the lack of understanding of history,
the limited knowledge of the Bible,
mythology, architecture, literature
and geography. The lack of understanding of political and religious
systems, economic and social customs
and habits of life are also a drawback.
While   President   Kllnck   was   enjoying  greatly  his  visits  to  the  art
galleries, he thought that others also

The Invasion of Victoria by U.B.C. students during the
Christmas Holidays is a Varsity tradition which has received
increasingly enthusiastic support since it was Inaugurated several
years ago. On each of the various occasions on which the invasion has taken place, the Victoria students have proved unfailing
In their courtesy and in their desire to co-operate with the U.B.C.
officials in making the trip successful.
This week approximately a hundred and fifty Victoria students will visit U.B.C, and will meet Varsity teams In a number
of athletic events, in the past a woeful lack of enthusiasm has
been displayed by Varsity students in regard to this return invasion. Not only has it been almost impossible to arouse adequate
interest in the event, but it has also been difficult even to persuade
U. B- C. to perform its duties as host with the customary display
of common courtesy. As a result. Victoria College cannot be
otherwise than disappointed in its reception nnd unfavorably
impressed with the treatment which the U. B. C. gives to Its
This year an interesting program has been arranged for the
week-end, and It is hoped that the various functions will be in
some measure supported by the unlverstiy students. The U.B.C.
invasion of Victoria was distinctly successful this year, and it
is not only our pleasure but our duty to make the Victoria Invasion of U. B. C. equally satisfactory.
For several weeks past the Musical Society of tlie university
has been sponsoring noon-hour recitals given by well-known
artists of the city. That these programs have been appreciated
Is evident from the creditable attendance of faculty and students,
which, if it continues throughout the remainder of the series, will
be sufficient proof that a certain interest in cultural affairs is
still alive within the university, despite the frequent assertions to
the contrary.
This week a second step is being taken liy the Studio Club,
comprising a number of students of outstanding musical talent,
in presenting a program of considerable interest. Tbe training
of the Studio Club has for some time been recognized as being of
distinct value to those students who are fortunate enough to be
included in its membership. This concert, however, is the first
time the university as a whole will be given an opportunity to
express its appreciation of tlie work of tlie club, and it is hoped
that the program will be received with the enthusiastic support
which it deserves.
We should like to congratulate the Musical Society ami the
Studio Club for their praiseworthy attempts to introduce into
campus activities a cultural element of distinct value.

For several years past tbe Aggies
have been supporting two faculty
clubs, the Agricultural Discussion
Club and the Livestock Club,—one of
which in very recent years has been
practically moribund. A general feeling of dissatisfaction with this condition was first rather awkwardly expressed In the formation of u new
club, the Agricultural Science Club,
which was to carry on activities of
u new type.
In all probability, however, such n
course would have resulted In a
worse condition after the enthusiasm
or Its founders had melted, und Its
activities bad passed Into the control
ot those who did not reel the same
tender paternal solicitude for Its welfare.
Gradually n definite aim developed
from the haze of grumblings and

consent, have been dissolved anil n

Editor of the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir,
As the writer of soliloquies has
discovered our one great motive for
our every action, namely, to make
fools ot ourselves may we be allowed
to ask what motive the writer had
for making publicly a personal attack
Upon ourselves without signing his
or her name? The writer of soliloquies, to whom we will refer as It,
calls us "brave fellows" and though
we disclaim any suoh title we regret
that we cannot return the complement.
Ita attitude, however, really Interests us. It would have us suffer by
reminding us of our dreadful disgrace ot last Wednesday und It
would add to our dishonor by uttering hollow words of praise but we
are forced to admit that nothing
oould intensity our deep sense of
shame — not even Its titanic efforts.
In reference to our great moment,
big adventure, call it what you like,
we choose neither to defend or excuse ourselves. What we wish to do,
however, Is to acknowledge the very
sporting fashion in which the
women's Undergrad viewed our efforts. For this we thank them very
much and promise never to be bad
boys again.
We ahould also like to deny that
We had been given permission to attend the affair by the Dean of
Yours sincerely,
Doug. McNeil
Denis Murphy
Paul Murphy
Editor's Note.—We publish this letter
for what lt ls worth.
Bdltor Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:--
Your learned comment, emphasizes
the very point which I hoped to make
dear. The Ubyssey is the university
paper and as such should reflect university life, even ao literature expresses the lite ot the people from which
It springs.
With this end lu view the Ubyssey
ahould seek to establish the proper
proportions ln Its emphasis upon university activities. Needless to say
those things which are characteristic
of the university as an institution ot
learning should be accorded their due
Surely I need hardly point out that
the word "animosity" appearing in your
valuable paper was Intended to be
"curiosity." Even my canine imagination cannot identify the second "gal."
As ever yours,
Varsity came off second best in a
tilt wtth Tilllcum Athletic Club,
Saturday night when Plant and Tough
were both knocked out. Plant started
well but was nailed with a left hook
in the second round. He tore into his
man again but was caught with a
lucky blow to the head that dropped
him again. The referee stopped the
fight and gave the decision to the
Victoria boy. Jimmy Tough had a
hard time when lie fought Gibson.
He started out well but he stepped
Into a straight left that floored him
At the count of ten he was on his
knees  but technically  out.
Experience told against the Varsity boys who were pitted against the
best men that Victoria could round
up. Harold Cliffe seconded the boys
on the trip.
Stanford University, Feb.—The flrst

the name "Honor System" shall \»> retained or changed to a new am) more

Oxford Debater Denounces Frets.
' Eugene, Ore., Feb. 29—The American college fraternity is not a desirable part of the college scholastic system ln the opinion of Malcolm MacDonald, member of the Oxford debating team, and son of Great Britain's
recent premier, Ramsay MacDonald.
Young MacDonald, when he was
touring America with his Oxford colleagues, was entertained at many colleges aud universities by various
fraternities, and his opinions accordingly, came from flrst. baud observation.
"I would not charge fraternity members with snobbishness, or with being
unduly frivolous, but fraternities create a definite boundary between members and non-members, which Is to
be deplored," he said.
"The fact Is, that fraternities create most of the social life of the college, and men not lu fvaternltles do
not share in this."
tn contrasting the educational systems of tho two countries, MacDonald
said the social life of Oxford was built
around hundreds of small (dubs; eating clubs, coffee clubs, philosophy
clubs, conversation clubs, |and athletic clubs. To these, members owe
no obligation, and thoy can withdraw
at wtll.
Fraternities In Alberta ?
Edmonton, Alta.—University of Alberta undergraduates are seeking the
surrender ot their pledge not to associate themselves with sororities or
fraternities during their student life,
and a sub-committee made a recommendation to the committee on student affairs to this effect, but the matter is stilt hanging Are.
This was the resolution:
"While tho sub-committee looks
with disfavor upon the establishment
of fraternities and sororities in the
universities, they (nevertheless feel
thet the pledge required at registration, prohibiting membership in such
societies, should be abolished. The
committee also strongly recommends
that ln the event of this pledge being
abolished regulations be drawn up by
the senate nnd board of governors
vesting full authority in the university to regulate and control such societies." —Toronto "Varsity."
Stanford Votes for Honor System
Stanford, The Daily Callfornlan.
Feb. 4.—Stanford students yesterday voted their faith ln the honor
system, now their code of honor,
at an. orderly and decisive assembly
of the Associated Students called to
settle the much disputed question.
By un almost unanimous vote, the
students decided: first, that they
would change the name from "honor
system" to "honor code"; secondly,
to adopt the committee report on the
honor code situation, but to make
no attempt to Immediately Incorporate Its recommendations into the
code; and finally, to continue in
hii their practice of not publishing
the names of students caught cheating at  examinations.
Pedagogy in the U.S.
University   of   California,   Horkeley
Instead of taking one inexperienced
graduate student from the University
of California School of Kducutlon
each year for its high shool, fifteen
are to be used In the future, according to word received by President W.
W. Campbell from Wlllnrd E. Glvens,
superintendent of the Oakland schools.
In the. past. Superintendent Glvens
says, the policy has been to ask for
one nominee for election each year
trom the School ot Education, to be
given a place without the usual two
years' experience demanded rrom applicants for positions ln the Oakland
schools. The growth of the Oakland schools has caused tbe Board
of Kdncatlon to expand this special
nominee system, and horearter the
University of California will be asked
toname 15 special nominees Instead
of ne, recommended ror the various
fields or teaching on the basis of
personal qualifications, scholarship
and   teaching   ability.
"This system has been very successful," says Superintendent Given,
"anil bus given iih many tine teachers."
Tlie Los Angeles schools, accord
Ing to Dean W. W. Kemp of the
School of Kducutlon have been using
some to graduates each year lu till
Ing vacancies In their stuffs, and the
aclloii of Die Oakland Hoard of Kdn
cation Is taken us a further evidence
thnt educational lenders of the state
consider the work of training high
school teachers In the School of Kducutlon   well  done.
Noon-hour recitalB are becoming
popular. One does not relish the
prospect ot a precocious little boy
thumping "Little Fairies," or a youthful violinist staggering through a
composition slightly beyond him,
These are muted horrors. However,
programs at 'Varsity are always a
pleasure. First we have the Musical
Society, now It ts tho Studio Club
and as the latter Is composed entirely of University talents, we are Interested to see Its worth. Some are
Inclined to despise local talent (I
hate that word local') but lu quite
a few Instances, the scoffer has been
found Incapable of even beating a
drum. A proper musician never
scoffs. He loses Ills temper, which
Is lur more encouraging.
We look with Interest to the Studio
Club recitals.

The worst has come.
The literary editor has uiiiiotiiiced
that there wtll be no literary supplement. And why? Merely because
no one has contributed!
It Is hard to believe that In this
University no one, no, not one, has
any desire to write, With all evidences of talent lu the University,
wtth boundless opportunities, with
every door Aung wide for the amateur, it Is beyond hitman belief!
It has been said so often and now
again. The lack of interest here in
any thing that 1b worth while Is
utterly confounding! The average
world for a good few students Is a
fixed set of text-books, a fixed curriculum and what else? Yes, many
other things, but nothing thnt means
self-improvement; nothing that is ln
any  sense, ambitious.
It is deplorable!
Science Men, Attention!
Of interest to science students is
the following announcement received
from the Department ot    Mines    of
the Geological Survey ot Canada.
Employment on Survey Parties
About one hundred students are
employed each year on Geological
Survey field parties engaged In geological and topographical mapping.
Opportunity is thus afforded for remunerative work during the summer
holidays that is of a practical nature
and Is closely related to courses in
geology, civil engineering and mining
engineering. With parties engaged
ln topographical mapping experience
is acquired in methods of surveying
and in the use of instruments, and
In the study of geological phenomena.
Applications must be made on
forms that may! be obtained from
the Director Geological Survey, Ottawa, or from the Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science.
Students who have been previously
employed nnd seek reemployment
must alao use the regular forms, nnd
applications should reach Ottawa not
later  than   March   15.
