Laurels of Evening Go To Lome
Morgan, Varsity's Veteran
By an unanimous decision of the
judges, U. B. G/won the second international debate held here this year,
wljta ,L. TLMorgan, Arts '24, and Wm.
lMwphy^~T5F~Arts'~r2'6, defeated repTe^
•senJsrjves of the University of California on the subject: "Resolved that
this meeting go on record as favoring
the Bok peace plan." •
The vote of the audience, as to which
side had won the debate, was also in
favor of British Columbia, the count
being 224 for, and 134 against U.B.C.
The negative was upheld by H. C.
Baiter and J. P. Wernette, Senior Arts
students at Berkeley.
Rev. A. E. Cooke, Judge Cayley, and
Mr. Tom Richardson gave the final judicial decision, while Mr. A. E. Grauer,
Arts '25, occupied the chair and welcomed the American speakers.
Mr. Murphy opened tho debate by
outlining the "nature of the Bok peace
plan, paying special attention to the
clauses regarding reservations. He
contended that the present U. S. policy of isolation could not be maintain
ed, £nd that, since strict adherence to
the covenant of the League of Nations
was both impractical and impossible,
the only existing alternative was the
adoption of the Bok plan of co-operation with the League.
jMr. Baiter, of Berkeley, then took
the floor. He claimed that the Bok
plan did not offer the best solution for
world peace and that it advanced no
new propositions for settling the problem. He asserted that the plan was
neither progressive nor constructive,
anfl that it should be abandoned and
time given over to the formation of a
better one.
"Lome" Morgan, leader of the U.B.
C. team, claimed that his opponents,
having advanced no alternative plan,
Were upholding isolation. In this they
were opposing the U. S. policy of the
past thirty year's and the views of the
present Chief Executive and many of
his presidential predecessors. He
maintained that non-co-operation on
the part of the U. S. would be detrimental both to her and the world at
large, and he! declared that the Bok
plan was the' only feasible proposition.
Mr. Wernette, second speaker for
California, stated that this peace plan
did not strike at the root of the problem and therefore could not prove effective. The world court and the

U. B. C. lost at Berkeley in the
other half of the double debating contest held last Tuesday
night. J. S. Burton and T. H.
Goodwin were defeated by G.
Harmon and R. G. Sterling, of
the University of California, by
a judges' decision of two to one
and an audience decision of 750
to 195.
Arts '27 tied with Arts '26 last Thursday in the inter-class swimming finals
for the Governor's Cup, while Science
'27 and Arts '25 hold third and fourth
places respectively. Bob McKechnie
and Bruce MacDonald were the outstanding swimmers for tlie winning
teams, and Gill, Duncan and Newcomb
also made a good showing. Allan Stewardson won the plunge in going the
length of the tank twice. The times
made were fairly good and were a decided improvement over those made
in the semi-finals.
The attendance of spectators was
quite small, no doubt due to the time
at which the meet was held, but a good
exhibition of swimming and diving
was given to the enthusiasts who did
turn   out.
This victory for the Frosh puts Arts
'27 in the lead of the race for the Governors' Cup. They are now two and
a half points ahead of Science '24, who
are second, and in the remaining
events, the relay race, the track meet
and the rowing, the freshmen have a
good chance although the race will be
a close one.

Play to Draw
Geh Ternan Scores Lone Goal for
The league-leading, and undefeate
Saint Andrews' eleven held the fast-
stepping Varsity squad to a one-all
draw, amidst rain and mud at Con
Jones' park last Saturday, before
about a thousand wildly excited fans.
Despite the unfavorable weather conditions, both teams dished up_-an excellent brand of the winterpasnme,
and many spectators staffed that it
was the best exhibition pi sqccej/seen
this year, and certainly/l^w^ohe of
the cleanest. Referee Cowan had only
to pull up one of the contestants for
minor infringements, due mostly tc
the slippery condition of the grounds.
Both goals were scored in the early
stages of the game, the first came after about ten minutes of play, when
Geh Ternan, Varsity's versatile star,
banged the ball into the net after receiving a pass from Huestis on the
wing. This reverse put new life into
the Saints' attack, and their sharpshooters gave the Students' defence a
busy time of it for the remainder of
the period. About fifteen minutes before the interval, Greig equalized for
the Saints, when he sent in a fast low
shot that had Mosher beaten to a
standstill. The Varsity custodian lept
the whole length of his goal area, but
could not reach the sphere in time to
After the interval, the Varsity forwards carried the ball into enemy-
territory and forced the play for the
remainder of the period. The Saints'
defence played great soccer, however.

1 Society
Well-known Artists To Assist At
Spring Concert
The University Musical Society, under the direction of Mr. Wilbur G.
Grant, will present their eighth annual spring concert on Friday, March
7, at S.15 p.m. This year, instead of
holding its grand concert in the Hotel
Vancouver, the Society has secured
Wesley Church, which is one of the
best auditorium in the city, and one
where the chorus and orchestra will
be heard to best advantage.
The Musical Society have been fortunate in securing Miss Lillian Wilson,
soprano, and Miss Beth Abernethy,
violiniste, to assist. These artistes
need no introduction to a Vancouver
audience. Miss Wilson, since coming
to the city about three years ago, has
established herself as Vancouver's finest lyric soprano. With an enviable
reputation in musical circles in the
critical East to precede her, she has
well sustained that reputation by her
work here.

Percy   Barr   Makes   Effective
Campaign Speech
The question of the caution money
,as been settled, and in a. manner
which cannot fail to be satisfactory
to everyone. The meeting' which began Friday noon and ;continued on
Monday, has "set itself down on record" as being unanimously in favor
of the resolution which Mr. Percy
Barr presented. This was to the effect that forms be sent to each of the
classes. These forms the students are
asked to sign, voluntarily, in this manner authorizing the Bursar to turn
over the balance of their caution money to the  CAMPAIGN  Fund.
The meeting opened on Friday noon
by a short speech from Mr. Carlisle,.:
who stated that work would begin on
the Point next Saturday. He also reported that the Faculty of Agriculture
had voted the remainder of their caution money to the CAMPAIGN Fund.
Mr. Gaddes, Chairman of the Contributions Committee, then repeated
to the students the urgent .heed for
immediate funds for athletic development. He stated that after careful
consideration they had come to the
conclusion that this was the simplest
way and the easiest way for the students to contribute. He then read the
resolution, which was in effect that all
the caution money remaining at the
end of the term be turned1 over to the
CAMPAIGN Fund. The meeting was
then open for discussion.
An amendment was proposed that
would authorize any student who had
need of his caution money to obtain it
by application at the Students' Council. After further discussion, a vote
was taken as to whether the vote was'.
to be open or secret. The supporters j
of the secret ballot had a majority of \
about 28. The meeting then adjourn- ]
ed till Monday.
Mr. Barr spoke on Monday in a very
able manner. He asserted that the

Contrary to the statement which
appeared in la'st week's Ubyssey, the'
Students' Council have decided not to
hold Theatre Night this year as usual.
They felt, that owing to the necessity
of abolishing faculty skits, it would
be impossible to make the evening interesting, since the Players' Club are
unable to put on a one act play similar to that of last year.
In place of Theatre Night, however,
basketball games will be played at
the Normal Gym, and a dance enjoyed
afterwards. There will be a fixture
game between the Senior girls and the
Normal, a feature game between the
Faculty and the Students' Council, and
probably a stunt game between the
girls' and men's teams. 2

VL Debate Wednesday
JTJijKfirst of the inter-class debates
will taite place Wednesday night at
8y p.m., ,/in the main lecture room of
tHeJPbysics Building. Arts '26 meets
Arts '27 on the question, "Resolved,
that Vancouver Should Be Made a
Free Port." The sophomores will take
the affirmative.
The freshmen are to be represented
by Mr. Benny Williams and Mr. Harry
Smith. Their plans are not as yet
divulged, but it is rumored that they
intend to confuse their opponents by
appealing to the intelligence of the audience. The two speakers themselves
have nothing to say about the debate,
except that well-known motto of the
Freshmen Pep Band: "The Truth is
Mighty and  Will Prevail."
The sophs, represented by Mr. Harry
Purdy and Mr. Murray Hunter, have
already broadcasted their plan of attack. Murray has decided to use a
quiet, temperate manner of speaking,
while Harry is going to be aggressive
and forceful. Both men have promised to use no vituperation and the
chairman, Mr. Lome Morgan, will see
that there is no rough stuff in the audience, so a quiet time is assured.
Everybody out then, on Wednesday
night, and hear one of the best debates
of the season.

need for playing fields was so urgent
that should they not be ready when
the University is established at Point
Grey, success in athletics would receive its death-blow. He stated that
the government and Alumni were behind the CAMPAIGN, and the student
body should not fail in its support.
Science '24 had, he said, voted their
caution money to the. fund; while
Arts '25 were planning to give a concert to contribute to it. He suggested the possibility of a shoe-shine establishment run by the Freshies at
the front of the Arts Building.
He then read the resolution which
the Committee and the Students'
Council had drawn up. This was, as
before stated, that forms be sent to
each class. In this way there would
be no compulsion, and a spirit of
friendly class rivalry would spring up.
As for those who will have no caution money left, he suggested that
they start a fund among themselves.
Before a vote was taken, a representative from each class spoke on
behalf of his class and readily vouched for its support in the signing of
the forms.
A vote was then taken, which was
unanimously in favor of the resolution, and the meeting broke up with

Miss Abernethy is a well known
Vancouver artiste. A member of our
own Alumni (a graduate of 1920), she
was a well known worker in the U.
B. C. Musical Society orchestra in her
undergraduate days, and has since
gained wide recognition for artistic
interpretation and thorough knowledge
of her instrument. Miss Abernethy
will be heard to advantage in several
exceptionally fine numbers.
The accompaniments for these artistes will be in the capable hands of
Mr. Ira Swartz.
Never before have the orchestra and
glee clubs been in such splendid condition. Under the efficient leadership
of Mr. Grant a much higher standard
of music has been achieved than ever
before attempted. Choral and orchestral numbers of unusual interest are
being featured on the programme. The
orchestra is without doubt the finest
ever assembled in the University, and
to hear them in such numbers as the
"Light Cavalry Overture" and the
"Hfenry VIII. Dances" is worth the
price of admission to the whole concert.
Mr. Grant has also achieved wonderful success in his training of the
choral branch of the Society. Under his
skilful leadership the Glee Clubs have
done much painstaking work to make
this concert worthy of the high standards of a University organization, and
if present indications are any criterion
there is not the least danger of disappointment.
Tickets are now on sale by members of the chorus and orchestra, at
$1.00 and 75c; all seats reserved.
Last week U. B. C. with a short-
handed and weakened team, took a
well-earned point from the B. C. Electrics, no score resulting. Davidson
played a stellar game.

The Varsity halves worked hard,
Phillips especially, breaking up innumerable rushes of the Saints' sharpshooters. Baker and Crute were kept
working overtime to keep the Scots'
forwards in check, but they did so
very creditably; so much so, that
Mosher had little to do in the second
period, most of the play being confined to mid-field.
Wells, the St. Andrews' net-minder,
had one or two close shaves in the
second stanza. Crute sent in a hot
shot that he would have never seen
if he had not been standing in line.
The Saints played a fast, heady
game, and fully deserved a draw. The
students, however, had the edge on
the play In the majority of the game,
and with Jock Lundie off their lineup, can be justly proud of the showing that they made against the league
leaders, who represent the class of
First Division this year. When Varsity meet Saint Andrews at Athletic
Park on March the first in the semifinals of the Mainland Cup, it should
be the feature game of the season,
and the chances of the Students holding the silverware seem to be good,
judging by Saturday's display.

Arts '20 Relay To Be
Run Next Wednesday
Annual Event Prom(isesJ_'b Arouse
' Usual Excitement
ext Wednesday afternoon the annual Arts '20 relay will be run off over
the eight-mile course from the new
Varsity location to our present site.
This annual event always causes a
great deal of excitement in the College, and as lectures are cancelled on
that afternoon, the various class track
fans will have an opportunity to show
their enthusiasm.
For the last two years the Aggies
have won it fairly easily, but it looks
as if the farmers will not have things
so much their own way this year. Arts
'25 have been training hard for the
event and should be a good bet, especially if their star, H. Arkley, is in
action. The Aggies are not as strong
as last year, but may be depended upon to put up a good argument. They
may have only three of their last
year's team in the race—Ernie Hope,
Les Buckley, and Hughie Russell. It
is not expected that Luyatt or Verchere
will run, and the remaining three of
last year's eight graduated with '23.
The Freshmen may upset the dope,
as nobody knows how strong they are.
Science '24 should also be in the money, Stacey and Wallace being among
their old standbys. The best individual miler in Science is Carl Barton of
Science '26, who holds the Varsity
mile record. Whatever the result the
annual classic promises to be the best
Each class representative must have

of men whose cars are to carry nine

'In a deluge of rain at Woodland
Park, Varsity Juniors dropped two
easy points to the cellar men of the
league, by a 3—2 score. The railway-
men handed Varsity the game on a
platter by putting through their own
goal twice in the first half, when Varsity did all the pressing. Doug. Partridge and Black had hard luck in not
boosting their averages, and several
likely efforts were frustrated by splendid work on the part of the Shops'
relief goalie.
During the second half Varsity soon
defaulted their advantage when the
aggressive forwards in black and orange got in two tallies on long rollers.

through Sutherland's fingers, and in
spite of heroic efforts the blue and

In the second half the Sons gradually overhauled Varsity until the score
was 18—13 in their favor; when with
only two minutes to go, Lewis dropped in a basket from centre floor. Following this, Wilkinson made a long
shot count, which brought the score
to 18—17. Lewis again brought down

The question of having a paid coach
for Varsity teams has again been
raised, and the same objections that
the proposal has hitherto encountered
have been offered. Two of these objections in particular have been especially potent: the expense that such
a course would entail, and the fact
that it might lead to a commercialization of sport. It is true that the expense of having a good coach would
amount to a considerable sum; yet,
with a constantly increasing student
body the salary could be met quite
easily out of Alma Mater funds. Moreover, the government, if compulsory
physical training were adopted, would
supply an athletic trainer, who could
also act as coach. The second objection offered is of more weight. But
all sport should at least pay for itself;
it is only the over-commercialization
that is prevalent in some universities
of the United, States, where the quality of a game is judged by the gate
receipts, that is to be avoided. All
good amateur aggregations and clubs
have a professional coach, and there
is no reason why this University
should have to do without one.
The positive benefits accruing from
such a course are many. A good
coach could probably handle three
branches of sport, say, rugby, basketball and gymnasium work. It is unfair to ask a man engaged in other
work to spend the time necessary in
getting the rugby team in shape in
the playing season. Then a paid coach
would have more authority, and in
games like rugby and basketball
where everything depends upon team
play, a coach with absolute power to
direct plays would be of great help.
"While in the present condition of student finances the procuring of a coach
may seem rather remote, there is no
doubt that such a proceeding is inevitable, and it is for the students themselves to decide how soon Varsity
shall put itself on a par with the other
universities with which it has to compete.
After considerable discussion the
Campaign CommitFee, working in accord with the Students' Council, have
decided that funds for the athletic
equipment at Point Grey are to be
procured by the voluntary contribution
of caution money by the students.
This is the course, alternative to the
methou of securing the money by a
majority vote, which it was originally
considered would be most acceptable
and most effective in procuring the
necessary funds.
After the meeting of last Friday,
there was considerable discussion in
the halls as to the merits and demerits of the proposed resolution. The
majority of the students were ready
to discuss the proposal with a view to
the difficulties in the way of the committee, but there were a few who
"crabbed," and protested loudly
against "taking out money." We
would almost imagine by the trend of
some of the discussion, that there
were some who were on the point of
accusing the committee of confiscating the funds to their own personal
It is unfortunate that in discussions
of this nature there are always a certain number of people who lose sight
of the point in view. It is needless to
say that there is neither personal
glory or pecuniary gain for those who
are serving upon the committee. The
members are working entirely for the
good of those who in a year or so will
be in attendance at the new University. We believe the attitude of every student should be, that their
money is not being given as a favor to
the committee but as a direct contribution to the University of the future.
The Campaign Committee expect to
call out the men of Arts, Science and
Agriculture, as soon as several minor
details have been arranged, and the
weather permits, to commence work
on the playing fields at Point Grey.
When this call comes, it is up to every able-bodied student to answer it.
Two reasons lie behind this policy
of student labor. The first is the very
considerable item of expense which
would be eliminated. A large number
of students could complete the work
in a comparatively short time, and
costs would be reduced to the minimum. To hire a gang of workmen to
do the job would be to impose on the
student body too great a financial burden. In the second "place, it would
show the general public that we are
willing to make sacrifices, and do all
in our power for the immediate establishment of our University at Point
Grey. It would impress on them the
fact that we are not idly sitting back
waiting for them to make full provision for us. Our willingness to roll
up our sleeves and dig in—literally
and figuratively—will earn for us the
respect of the public, a greater and
deeper respect than we have previously enjoyed.
Stu'dents should remember that the
annual elections of student officers
will he held in the near future. Nominations must be in the hands of the
Secretary of the A. M. S. seven days
before the date of the election, and
must be signed by ten members of the
Society. In the case of the Marshal,
however, nominations will be received
till two days before the election day.
Elections will be held on the following dates:—
Honorary President and President—
March 10 (nominations in on March

C.   M.   STANDS   FOR
B.C.,  Feb.   1-th,   1924.
Editor Ubyssey:
Dear Sir:—1'our editorial of January
SIst 1 consider very timely and I wish
to commend you on your call to the students of the University for an earnest
consideration of true religion. We can
safely say that true religion is knowing
LJod through Christ, having an experience
of  Christ,  and  showing charity or  love.
Christ was never behind the times; He
is up-to-date now and He is a Futurist.
Much "foremost modern thought" is not
right thought, and those who call themselves Christians need to follow in His
steps. Much "free" thought is "loose"
thought, and some so-styled "accepted
facts of science" of to-day will be the
theories of the future.
The S.C.M. stands for the Bible teaching that Christ is the "Supreme Revelation of God" and that in Him is found
"the fullest realization of life." This is
not a religious theory, it is an eternal
fact, a truth which Old Testament writers such as David discovered, which
Christ Himself, by his miraculous life,
revealed, and one which the unanswerable witness of Christians for 2,000
years proves.
"If any man would come after me let
him   take   up   his  cross  and  follow me."
Thanking you for yotir courtesy,
HAROLD  C.tETTBR,  Ag.   '24.
Editor   "Ubyssey."
Your correspondents of your issue of
February 14th, writing regarding the
S. C. M. seemed to have jumped to the
defense of that organization when there
were no charges, real or suggested to
defend  it against.
The S. C. M. was not, I think, in the
opinion of Miss Ingram confused with
ideas of "Theological Orthodoxy," nor
did Mr. Riddehough wish to accuse the
movement of being "writing to accuse
the whole University of religious apathy
or  bigoted atheism."
Although the S. C. M. as a body have
not established obstinate orthodox ideas,
some members of that organization have,
and moreover, cling to them with a
determination   that   is  almost  pitiful.
Until we realize that to find truth we
must cast that "Theological Orthodoxy"
aside it will be many years before "the
supreme revelation of God" is found—
If ever I
Cordially yours,   /
B.  H.  E./0OULT,
v       Arts  '25.
Editor "Ubyssey."
Sir:—Of controversy on matters affecting religious opinion as distinct from
religious life, there is no end, and I do
not wish for one moment to introduce or
encourage such controversy in the columns of this paper.
Tne question as to whether the present atmosphere of the University is favourable to the growth of a truly religious spirit, orthodox or not, is on a different plane, and 1 for one desire to express my grateful appreciation of the
article on the S. C. M. which appeared
in your issue of January 31st.
The problem of "theological orthodoxy" referred to in Miss Lucy Ingram's
more recent letter is not raised by, that
article. It simply suggests that the
marked lack of interest evinced by the
students in the S. C. M. Conference indicates a regrettably apathetic attitude
toward the one element which in our individual and corporate lives is essential
to a realization of what life in its fulness  should  mean  to  us.
The S. C. M., however inadequately it
may at times be represented by its enthusiasts, has been a wonderful agency
for the development of religious life
among the students of the world, and indifference to its work on the part of our
own students must surely carry with it
the imputation expressed by the writer
of  the article.
It is no service to the University to
evade or try to gloss over the symptoms
which point to the existence of a gravely dangerous weak spot in our/University life. /
Yours   trulv,      /
Arts '24.
<_£/_. M. MEETING
Prof. McRae, professor of theology
at the University of Shantung, addressed an assembly of S.C.M. students last Monday afternoon in Room
Z. Dean Coleman gave an opening
address and introduced the speaker.
Prof. McRae, having lived in China
for the past fifteen years, gave a vivid
impression of the trend that student
thought is taking in that country.
"There is a feeling of movement and
life in China at present," he said, and
pointed out that the factors behind
this great revolution of thought were
the Revolution of 1911, the formation
of the Chinese Republic, education of
the Chinese; the Great War, and the
Christian  education.
He then described the attitude of
the Chinese students to Christianity
and the many religious groups being
formed. "The only- kind of Christianity which China will welcome," he
stated, "is one which is social in its
situation, is foursquare, and looks forward to world peace."
He closed by maintaining that
Christianity is indeed proving itself
in China to-day.
The meeting was then thrown open
for questions, many of which Prof. McRae answered.
Plans are under way for students
to visit the forthcoming British Empire Exhibition, to be held in London
this summer. The Overseas Education League is in charge of the project, and have communicated with
Professor Christie of the U. B. C. Forestry Department, regarding U. B. C.
participation in the excursion.
Undergraduate students of Canadian
Universities are eligible to admittance
in the privileges of the visit. Members of the excursion will probably be
the guests of the University of Edinburgh at their graduation functions in
July, while special attractions will be
offered in addition to the regular exhibition program.
The trip will cost in the neighborhood of $300.00, but students with
friends or relatives in the Old Country will be able to reduce their expenses considerably.

The second team showed fine form
in their league fixture against Central
Park, drawing 1—1. They had a decisive advantage in the play, and it
augers well for their chances next
week in the semi-final of the Brunswick Cup with the same team. Our
fellows got off the mark and pressed
dangerously. The Parkmen warded
off the attack, and returned forcibly.
Play evened up, and Cant missed a
good chance, as did Newcombe later.
Central Park opened the count when
a mis-kick gave Davidson no chance.
U. B. C. came back strong, and had
the edge for the remainder of the
In the next period, U. B. C. did most
of the attacking, equalling when Cant
headed Martin's cross into the net.
Newcombe was offside on a splendid
chance, and the visitors' goal had near
escapes on several occasions. Play
quieted down, and the game ended
without further score.

Dr. A. F. EllZlark, Associate Professor of French, was the speaker at
the weeklvr Institute lecture held in
the Physic^Building last Thursday
evening. Dr. Clark's subject was
"Florence," and the natural beauties
and historic places of interest in this
famous old city were admirably illustrated by appropriate slides.
The feuds of the Middle Ages, the
.political development leading to the
founding of the Florentine Republic,
the historic struggle in the times of
the Medici—all were treated in an interesting manner by the professor.
Dante, Petrarch, Michael Angelo,
and many others of the great artists
who have made Florence an immortal
city, were mentioned, and their art and
its history sympathetically discussed.

ieagu« had both proved failures, he
said< and therefore the peace plan,
since it provided for conjunction with
the former and co-operation with the
latter, would also prove a failure.
The customary rebuttals followed,
Mr. Morgan 'of U. B. C. speaking last.
The chief discussion here hinged upon
whether the Bok plan favored a status
quo policy for the TJ. S. or whether it
provided for propressive changes.
The laurels of the evening went to
Lome Morgan, whose brilliant, sweeping refutations were the feature of the
debate. "Lome" debated with strength
and force throughout and was especially clever in his rebuttal.
Mr. Murphy had to struggle against
an adverse impression created by his
unfortunate forgetfulness in his opening speech. He overcame this tendency in his rebuttal, retrieving his
reputation and aiding considerably in
the U. B. C. victory.
The paucity of arguments advanced
on both sides indicated that the subject of the debate was not of the best
kind for a debate of this length.
The California speakers proved to
be finished, capable orators and atoned
considerably for their lack of argumentative material by their fluency
and ease of expression.
The Musical Society orchestra played several selections before the commencement of the debate, which were
much appreciated. "Kenny" Schell

were fully discussed and their value
with respect to present day traffic
Road construction and maintenance
is a vital subject in British Columbia,
and it is encouraging to note that the
interest which the subject merits was
shown by everyone present.

The CAMPAIGN Committee is working hard these days. Raising money
has been taking their time and
thought, but last Saturday an actual
start was made in preparing playing
fields at Point Grey. At nine in the
morning a party of twenty men, mostly husky Science boys, but containing
a few Arts and Agriculture men who
had some knowledge of the mysteries
of surveying, travelled to the Point to
lay out the playing fields, and to make
preparations for the actual pick and
shovel work which will be commenced
this Saturday.
The students intend to make sure
themselves that playing fields will be
ready for them when the move is made
to Point Grey, and the work done last
Saturday is only a beginning. There
are funds to be raised, and a large
amount of work to be done. The committee has got away to a good start
in both work and finances, as the caution money which is being pledged this
week will give them the necessary
funds to commence operations.

next meeting on Tuesday, February

To be or not to be is the infernal
question that spoiled Bill Shakespeare's chances of reaching the upper
regions; however, Bill has just received some gratifying news in the
form of an advance notice that King
Lear will be produced at the Royal
Beelzebub Theatre. The leading role
will be taken by Dr. Sedgwick, who
had originally been scheduled to appear with the Heavenly Harp Co. at
New Jerusalem, but was prevented
from appearing there owing to circumstances over which he had no control.
We would like to take this opportunity of stating that the invigorating
effects of our wonderfully warm climate have tended to increase the stature of the leading actor, who has now
reached the tender height of six feet.

The Editorial Tyrant
"Hey, you! Write an editorial this
week," was the greeting of the chief
last Wednesday, as I strolled into the
office to straighten up my tie in the
editorial mirror.
"Eh?" I replied, rather mystified,
gazing around at the other occupants
of the room.
" 'Write an editorial this week,' I
said," he repeated, coldly, looking at
me over the top of his glasses, then
turned and began to look franctically
for a synonym of Matthew Arnold.
"What about?" I essayed, rather
chastened by his tone. This must
have been one of those questions
which the chief says get his goat. He
leaped out of the chair, his eyes blazing, and shouted:
"Say, you write that editorial, or—"
At this moment a knock came at the
"Tell 'em to go to h 1," he muttered, sitting down again. I opened
the door and in tripped the chief's
favorite reporter.
"Hello!" she trilled.
"Oh, hello there! Is your write-up
as good as usual? Let me have a look
at it, won't you? Four hundred words,
wasn't it?" said the chief, jumping up
and brushing the senior editor aside.
I took advantage of the general cessation of activities around the mirror
to give my tie a twist and smooth
down my hair. When I turned around
two heads were bent over the write-
up, which was held firmly down on
the table by two hands, the chief's on
"Say, uh, chief," I said. No answer. "Will the Heinz Band be a good
subject?" The report must have been
interesting, because I couldn't seem to
get any reply. So I went out to the
front hall to see what was doing.
Late that afternoon I rushed into
the office to suggest to the chief that
we could run a cut of him that week
because he had distinguished himself
in the class relay eliminations the day
before. There seemed to be a kind
of scuffle as I entered. I guess the
write-up couldn't have been quite as
good as usual, and they had been trying to fix it up. The star reporter
was rather flustered. I expect he had
been criticizing the report pretty severely.
"I I guess I can manage now,"
she said and rushed out.
"Say," I began, turning to the chief
who was regarding me with a fixed
intent look on his face.
"Have you written that editorial
yet?" he interrupted frigidly, sitting
down and opening the book of synonyms.
