REV. EARNEST THOMAS SPEAKS
ON "THE SIGNIFICANCE OF
VICTORY"
On the morning of December 5th the
students of the University held a special meeti-ng for the purpose of making
an official recognition of the victory of
the Allied forces and of the dawn of
peace. Lectures were cancelled and the
Auditorium was filled with all classes
of students, including short-course men
and returned soldiers. After the singing of "O Canada," Mr. Sutcliffe, president of the Alma Mater Society, explained the reason for the meeting and
introduced the  speaker.
Mr. Thomas spoke with great sincerity and made a lasting impression
on the minds of all who were privileged to hear him. We regret that we
can  only  quote  in   extract:
"Viewed from the seclusion of the
study, the victory, both as it approached
and as it was accomplished, appeared
as the conclusion of that new epoch
which was ushered in by the Protestant
Revolution. The old papacy had represented the spiritual heritage and common interest of civilization and had
given the old world unity, but the
ushering in of Lutherism was the ushering in of separatism. The world became an aggregation of independent
nations—nations   in   rivalry.
"Lately we have witnessed an awakening of desire for escape from this chaotic condition. -Nationalism has given
splendid help in the shaping of history
and the making of personal character;
nor has its last word yet been spoken
nor its last boon conferred; but we find
everywhere the quest for an inner unity
and some institution to express it. In
Germany we saw the final assertion of
untrammeled national self-assertion in
:a state which was solely a will to
"power.

Varsity Will Play
Victoria Dec. 20
RUGBY AND BASKETBALL GAMES
TO BE PLAYED IN CAPITAL-
COME AND ROOT!
Interest in athletic circles has been
aroused by the announcement of the
proposed trip of the Rugby and basketball teams to Victoria during the
Christmas holidays. If the present
plans materialize, the teams will leave
Vancouver on the night boat of Friday, December 20, the day that lectures
stop. The Rugby game will be played
in the afternoon and the basketball
games early in the evening, after which
the committee in Victoria has promised
a social evening, including cards and
dancing. The majority will return by
the night boat. If the party numbers
twenty-five or over, the return fare will
be $3.35; and if there are over 100, the
fare will be $2.50 return. It is essential
that the rooters should meet as often
as possible in order to have their songs
and  yells   in   good   shape.
The Rugby team is quickly rounding
into shape, and can be depended on to
give a good account of itself. It is
going to meet one of the strongest
teams Victoria can produce. The Varsity team will be light, but it will have
plenty of speed to make up for it.
The men's basketball team have had
a few practices lately, but they suffer
from the lack of a gymnasium. The
women have managed to obtain the
High School gym. for practicing from
5:30 to 6:30 on Tuesdays and Fridays,
so that they also will be able to field
a  team to  represent  the Varsity.
The teams will need all the support
available, so get out your colors and
go with the bunch!

Miss Anglin Joins
The Players Club
FAMOUS ACTRESS BECOMES AN
HONORARY MEMBER OF
UNIVERSITY   SOCIETY
A meeting of the Players Club was
held last Tuesday, with Miss Highmoor
in the chair. After sortie routine business the report of the nomination committee was adopted as follows: Vice-
president, Mr. A.  Lord;  secretary, Miss
D. Adams;   committee   members,   Miss
E. Livingstone  and  Mr.  G.  Evans.
We learn with pleasure from Mr.
Wood of a noteworthy addition to the
club in the person of Miss Margaret
Anglin, the well-known Canadian
actress, who, while here last July, kindly consented to become an honorary
member. On behalf of Miss Anglin,
Mr. Wood presented to the Players
Club a beautiful picture of the actress
in  the  role  of  Media.
In giving the report of the advisory
committee, the honorary president spoke
of the great handicap under which the
society worked this year, due to the
influenza epidemic. In former years the
Christmas plays had given the advisory
board some idea of the talent at their
disposal.
The spring play will be "The Importance of Being Earnest," a play by
Oscar Wilde, which, to judge by the
description given us of the principal
roles,  should be a huge  success.

IN   THANKSGIVING
(Continued from page  1)
"It was not a long step from the
separatism of nations to the competitive individualism in the commercial
world and politics, an extreme of liberalism which made for the weakening
of  the  national  sense.
"As the sense of unity was gradually
weakened, the nation became an aggregation of individuals. This led to
wonderful liberating movements, but
stripped the state both of those institutions that helped as well as those
that hindered self-expression. The liberal tradition in England produced
wonderful results at the start of the
war in voluntary enlistments, but proved
entirely inadequate as a means of complete   national   self-assertion.
"The Hague Tribunal, and the more
recent general demand for the creation
of a League of Nations, testifies to the
deep hunger of the human spirit for
some vital unity into which each nation
shall bring its own peculiar glory. Thus
we see the close of a great cycle of
social   experiment   in   organization.
"With the growth of the international world comes the need for international minds in the populace. The
legacy of liberalism and individualism
compels the promotion of the international mind in the life of the ordinary
citizen.
"What agencies are available for such
a task? History reveals two—the
Church   and   the   University.
"But the Church, once the centre of
unity, has become one of the mighty
factors for disintegration, although
lately events seem to show in the
church in Canada a deep yearning for
some adequate expression of the underlying unity  of the  nation.
"It is, then, for the University to
accept the main burden of the enterprise, the interpretation of the war in
its more ultimate issues. This University must become the soul of the Province, not the servant of commercialism,
or a noble cause is betrayed. The University must stand supreme, for we
must have men and women who, in
our journalism and at our breakfast tables, in our clubs and on our platforms,
will voice and stimulate that informed
good-will ■ which alone can guide the
international  mind.
"The citizens, therefore, look to the
governors in their appointments, to the
Faculty in their interpretation of the
high traditions of scholarship, and to
the student body, as it forms the
habits  and  traditions  of this University,

part, are only recorded in old workings
and slag dumps in various parts of
Europe and Asia. By gradual steps the
evolution of modern practice was developed by the speaker, who made constant use of the blackboard. The formation of the free metal, matte and
slag in the blast furnace was fully
described au'd discussed for various
types of ores, and the difficulties attending the smelting of each were considered.
Pyritic smelting was contrasted with
blast furnace smelting; after which the
speaker dealt, in considerable detail,
with the sources of loss of copper—in
the flue dust and volatilized material,
in the slag and the separation of the
matte   from   it.
Processes of refining the matte were
then briefly described; the reactions
taking place during their course, and
reasons for the many improvements in
the designs of modern reverberatory
furnaces. The copper convertor refining process completed a most interesting lecture, which owed its success
largely to the stress laid throughout
on basic principles rather than upon
their   practical   working   out.
The meeting then adjourned after a
very   hearty   vote   of   thanks
THE WOMEN'S LIT.
"The Struggle Between the North and
the South" was the subject of an address
delivered by Professor Robertson at
the meeting of the Women's Literary
Society on December 4th. He dealt
with a phase of this war that has been
to a great extent overlooked, namely, the
recurrence for the third time of a clash
between the nations of the Mediterranean, the old civilization of the South
with its daughter powers in Spain,
France and Britain, and its ancient
enemy from the North. Twice have the
barbarians swept down and blotted out
the culture of Mediterranean powers;
each time from the ruins a better and
stronger civilization has risen. This is
the third time the unending strife has
culminated in a great upheaval but this
the South (which once more predominates in British blood) has pushed back
the foe from the savage North. By
reference to recent investigations of anthropologists, he gave the audience the
welcome assurance that the importance
of the Teutonic strain in Britain has
been much exaggerated. A hearty vote
of thanks was extended to Mr. Robertson at the close of the meeting.

CURRENT TROUBLES
We have been informed by the various members of the Faculty that the
University session is to be extended
two weeks longer than usual in order
to partially make up for lost time; this
means that lectures will continue until
April 18th, and convocation will take
place two weeks later than usual. This
news will be hailed with delight by students who for different reasons do not
wish the academic year to be very much
prolonged; others, more studiously inclined, may regret this decision.
Contrary to the expectations of many
and to the delight of all, the Christmas
vacation is not to be curtailed—we will
receive our usual holiday, and there
will be no Christmas examinations. The
elimination of these necessary horrors
will certainly add to the enjoyment of
every student; for once in our University career we will be permitted to
indulge in the festivities of the season
without the usual sword of examination
results  hanging  over  our heads.
Doubtless the members of English
II. will specially enjoy the vacation,
because to them will fall the unique
privilege of studying Wordsworth during the holidays! This statement may
not be very clear to the minds of the
uninitiated, but to explain it might be
to divulge class secrets; so suffice it to
say that in future years many eminent
Wordsworthian scholars will look back
upon Christmas, 1918, as the memorable
time in which they make their first real
acquaintance with nature's poet! There
may be a few misguided youths and
maidens who will enjoy their vacation,
blissfully unconscious of the existence
of Wordsworth, only to wake up with
a start about the middle of January to
discover that they have been living
more  or  less  in  a  fool's  Paradise.
But the worst is yet to come. There
are to be examinations at the beginning
of  February;   we are not to be allowed
to entirely forego the delights of former years, nor are our professors to be
altogether deprived of the great pleasure  of  reading our  brilliant papers.
It is to be universally deplored—at
least with regard to Arts subjects—
that the examination is to be merely of
one hour's duration. Seeing that the
majority of us require almost half an
hour to recover from the mental paralysis that overcomes us upon first
perusing an exam, paper, it is difficult
to know how we are to do ourselves
any justice in such a limited space of
time. We earnestly hope that we shall
either be presented with a very limited
number of questions, or that no very
extensive information on any question
may  be  expected  from  us.
After the examinations we expect to
receive two days' vacation—we presume in order to attend the funerals
of friends who have succumbed to the
terrific strain involved in trying to cope
with  the  one-hour  examination   system!
DEATH OF ROSTAND
Although we are not all students of
French literature, it is to be hoped that
we at least take enough interest in
matters of literary importance to note
the death of Rostand, the great French
dramatist, at the comparatively early
age of fifty. To-day France mourns the
death of yet another of her greatest
sons.
Rostand was born at Marseilles in
1868; and it is noteworthy that his literary reputation was made before the
age of thirty, which is unique in
France.
So great was the success of his most
famous play, "Cyrano de Bergerac,"
that the first night of its production on
the stage is one of the theatrical events
of French history, comparable only to
the first night of "Hermani." It will be
remembered that the genius of Rostand
was first discovered by the actor Co-
quelin, who played the title-role of the
piece, and that Sarah Bernhardt was
also quick to note the signs of power
in an earlier work of the young playwright, "La  Princesse Lointaine."
"Cyrano de Bergerac," which has always enjoyed a marked popularity, has
had an almost phenomenal success during the war, 16,000 copies having been
sold  in   one  year.
This success is due partly to the fact
that the play .has a special patriotic
appeal, and partly because it is typical
of the spirit of France. We are glad
that the creator of the immortal Cyrano

MUSICAL NOTES
The Students' Song Book
The publication of a Students' Song
Book, containing the words of dozens
of standard songs, fills a long felt
want, for, while everyone, knows the
melodies of the majority of the songs,
very few of us are familiar with the
words.
To quote from the preface, the book
"includes songs for every taste except
vulgarity." They are divided into four
classes—Songs of the Nations, Student
Songs, Sentimental Songs and Divers
Ditties. The distinction between each
of these four classes is not very well
maintained, and at times it is unnecessarily  arbitrary.
"The British Grenadiers" is classed
as a Sentimental Song, but its proper
place is amongst the Songs of the Nations, side by side with "Ye Mariners
of England." It is unfortunate that
"The Star Spangled Banner was omitted.
Under "Sentimental Songs" we have
many of those immortal favorites which
have withstood the test of time; but
an otherwise perfect section is marred
by the inclusion of "Good Night, Ladies," and the Berrypickers' Classic."
Surely these come under the classification  of Ditties.
However, these are minor defects
which can be easily remedied. It is a
difficult task to compile a book of this
nature from the mass of available material, and the song book committee deserves credit as a reward for their
persevering and  painstaking  efforts.
Y.W.C.A.
The Senior Bible Study Class of the
Y.W.C.A. met for the first time this
session on Monday afternoon, with the
Rev. Prof. Trumpour as leader. "Fore-
shadowings of the Career of Jesus" was
the topic of the study. As it was the
opening meeting of the series, there
was not as much discussion as might
be desired; but that fault will be remedied  as  the  class  grows  in  numbers.
Those interested in this branch of
work might note that the class will be
held every Monday afternoon at three
o'clock. The book for the course is
"Jesus in the Records," by Henry Burton   Sharman.

to enrich our life with minds accustomed to think clearly on whatsoever
things are honorable, gracious and of
good  report.
"The University is free and must remain free, the servant of the nation
but not the instrument of the State; its
chairs dominated by neither political,
ecclesiastical nor other sectional interests.
"As we review the national effort we
rejoice in the contribution made by the
University. The universities of our
country functioned as the nation had a
right to expect, but to a degree which
none of us had foreseen. We salute
the memory of one who, coming to the
presidency of this University fresh from
the very green pastures of Scandinavian
pacificism, so speedily and so effectively interpreted for our student body the
magic of national service, and brought
to bear upon our young manhood that
moral judgment of the race which inspired them to go forth, a valiant host
in  disciplined  devotion.
"Nor would it be worthy or us to
forget that the same impulse whie-h
worked in our manhood found fitting
expression in the womanhood of our
colleges. How much of that sustaining
power which fired and nerved our soldiers was due to the simple, quiet, sted-
fast citizenship and support of our women students cannot yet be estimated.
Most significant, we shall see that this
war has witnessed the fall of the purely
male state. That male state stood revealed in its final implications in Germany, with its stern insistance on economic advancement and supreme disregard of those great human values which
it is the instinct of womanhood to
guard.
"Not commercialism or extended
commerce   is   the   aim   of   this   war,   so
victoriously closed. Not materialism or
anything material was the ultimate secret of the victory, but great deeds
and national heroism repeated through
many centuries until they had become
the traditions of our regiments, the
glory of our arms, and the material of
our men.
"This is the tradition which through
the war and through the University
becomes our heritage. It is our birthright as we face the dawning of a new
world and will be our light unto the
end."
A vote of thanks was moved by Mr.
Gibson and seconded by Miss Peck in
appreciation of Mr. Thomas' inspiring
address.

lived to see the victory of France and
her Allies  over a  common  enemy.
"Cyrano de Bergerac" is especially
familiar to those students of French
literature who devoted part of last year
to the very interesting study of Rostand's greatest work, and who learned
to appreciate still more the power of
French  dramatic art.
Amongst the other notable works of
the playwright are "Les Romanesques,"
"L'Aiglon,"  and  "Chanteclair."
The following is a copy of a resolution passed by Faculty at its meeting
on  Wednesday,  December  4th,  1918:
"That we, as a Faculty, express our
keen appreciation of the services rendered by the members of our student
body and teaching staff who acted as
nurses or orderlies during the recent
epidemic, and our great pride in their
fine spirit of heroism and devotion—a
spirit worthy of the traditions established in this University by our men in
khaki.
The   following   statistics   on   attendance   at   the   University   will   be   of   general
interest:

The C.O.T.C. is again in full swing.
The weather has not been favorable to
drill activities lately, but when Mr. Plu-
vius takes a rest a ' route march will
test their ability and shooting practices
will commence at the ranges. We hear
that the Government is to reorganize
Canada's militia shortly, so we will
probably have an adjutant and quartermaster as well as a drill sergeant from
Victoria. At present Lieut. H. Letson
is  acting  adjutant.
Corps song practices will be held
shortly. The N.C.O. classes should help
out  in  the   singing.
We hear that J. McM. MacLennan,
formerly of Arts '19, has been a prisoner in Germany since September of
this year. Previous to falling into the
hands of the Hun, he had attained the
rank of flight commander and had won
the  M.C.
This   is   the   kind   of   information we
want and hope to get by appeal to the
students.    The  military  editor  asks for
co-operation.
The following University men, having
tasted of the joys of a soldier's life, are
once more living the hum-drum existence of a student: Messrs. W. Coates,
W. J. Couper, J. DePencier, H, D.
Greenwood and Gerald McClay. We
are glad to have  them with  us  again.
APPEAL TO
HOCKEY PLAYERS
This week a special appeal is being
made for all the girls interested in
grass hockey to turn out to the practices. A game is being arranged agamst
King George High School this coming
Saturday, while the club hopes to play
Victoria the following week. This is
impossible unless more girls are willing
to sacrifice a little of their time to
practice. The most imposing number
of players this term was witnessed on
Monday, when six girls ventured onto
the Bridge Street grounds. Hockey
under these conditions is impossible.
Surely there is sufficient interest in the
athletic success of the Varsity to ensure  a  real  game next time.

THROUGH THE THEODOLITE
"It's a shame," just as Mac. said,
"that when some of these business
men's clubs or similar societies have a
blowout down town, the newspapers always have their reporters on hand;
whereas when we, of the Faculty of
Applied Science of the University of
British Columbia, have a big night,
the fact is never proclaimed from the
housetops." Though this be a printed
fact, it is nevertheless true, namely, that
the aforesaid society had a grand and
glorious smoker on Friday, October
18th, and the early part of Saturday,
the 19th. It was a jolly crowd of fellows that gathered in the parlors of
Glencoe Lodge that night—the merriest
of all were the professors. Dr. Sedgwick was, of course, ordered to speak,
and the way he held the attention of
fifty Science men was a marvel. Professors Killam, Elliott and Turnbull
were called upon later in the evening
and responded magnificently. Just as
Dr. Sedgwick and his gang were settling down to a quiet game of poker,
Jack brought in the programme as a
further disturbance. We were treated
in turn to singing, serious and otherwise; some "Habitant" poems by Mr.
Betts; a miniature orchestra; and last,
but by no means least, was the "Hula
Chorus" by the Hawaiian Scientola
Girls. A discussion and some further
items finished a truly successful evening.
Y.M.C.A.
"Patriotism" was the key note of an
address by Rev. Father O'Boyle to the
Y.M.C.A. last Friday. The question,
said the speaker, was: How could we
Canadians do most for our country and
humanity? Before the war we had been
a race "coalescing into a people." But
the blood of heroes was needed to
complete the structure of nationality.
We can be thankful for the rejuvenation of the Canadian soul, the re-birth
of our nation, brought about through
the pain and anguish of war. The
elements of patriotism, the speaker
thought, were education, sacrifice, social justice and religion. Without these
elements Christian civilization could not
flourish.
