Members of the Freshman class
were oft-daily welcome to the Unlveralty by President L. S. Kllnck and
Dean D. Buchanan, yesterday at 3
p.m. in tbe Auditorium.
President Kllnck spoke first to the
Ave hundred assembled Freshmen
and gave them serious advice on their
future university career. University
life Is not mads up solely or lectures
and exams, waa the purport of the
President's message. There are other
activities that should be participated
In by atudenta wishing to make the
most of the four years at college athletics, executive positions and social
duties are all part of university life
and should aot be neglected. Dr.
Klinck Illustrated his discourse with
many pointed anecdotes relating to
the university.
Following Dr, Kllnck, Dr. D. Buchanan. Dean of Arts and Science, addressed the Freshmen. While granting
the truth of the first speech, he maintained that the scholastic side had
premier Importance and waa too often
neglected. Students oorae to the university to learn and education Is Its
primary aim,
Following these addresses the
Freshman Class waa divided into
parties and shown around tbe cam-
pes and Botanical Gardens under the
guidance of graduate students.

tn reciting Its annual welcome to the Freshman Class, the
"Ubyssey" this year does not wish merely to repeat the usual
formal sentiments. Addresses of welcome have pointed out to the
Frosh a vista of four years of college life and emphasised the
responsibilities and duties of those who wish to serve their Alma
Mater, '"the University Is ln your hands; Its future depends on
you," has been the gist of the message, while agreeing heartily
with suoh sentiments, we feel that there is an aspect of the case
that should be stressed further.
Until the class of '83 gets the true university outlook It will
remain an incubus upon the college. The sooner it realizes that it
Is ho longer in a high school, and forgets the terms, "teacher,"
"home-work" and "after school" the sooner will its members become real university students.
The University professes to treat students as men and women* but this is a hopeless task as long as the Frosh refer to and
think of themselves as "kids."
The matriculation examinations mark the beginning of a
new stage in the life of the student. On entering university he
aakes a great step and leaves his childhood behind. The whole
jjnlflcance of initiation is its demarcation of this new stage.
Tne Freshman is expected to accept his new responsibilities with
an intelligence and restraint sufficient to justify the trust.
Imagine Canada suddenly afflicted with nn inflow of aliens
equal to 60% of the population. The social structure of the nation
would be shaken to its foundations. Yet every year the U.B.C.
undergoes a proportional influx of what may be called uncivilized
immigrants. Too often a whole year elapses before the newcomers
catch the spirit of the university. In other words, their college
life is one-fourth over before they become responsible university
The main retarding force, in our opinion, is the persistence
of the high school viewpoint. The essential difference between
high school and university is that in the former the students are
driven and in the latter they are led. As long as the Frosh feel
themselves to be "kids" waiting to be driven by fear-Inspiring
teachers, armed with straps, they will remain an unassimllated,
useless drawback to the university.
The Frosh have a choice to make. Are they going to become
university students, or remain "just kids?"
In spite of the much discussed cynicism of modern youth,
we venture to say that a freshman usually approaches University
life with a feeling of strangeness, if not of awe. So much is unfamiliar to him that we cannot, enumerate or discuss here the
various ways of getting acquainted. We can only advise him to
read the Handbook, ask plenty of questions, explore the campus,
and generally absorb as quickly as possible all he can learn about
the University; and explain that college spirit, which will be
explained to him many times, is best shown by taking an active
interest in some part of University life.
The emphasis in the last sentence we place on the word
active. The newness of the surroundings is dangerously apt to
reduce the freshman to passivity. He often decides to wait until
he gets better acquainted before he starts following his particular
enthusiasm. There is no more fatal mistake. The only way to
understand the college atmosphere is to work with university
people. The time for starting to work is as soon as possible. If
he intends to follow any particular branch of study—possibly
an Honour course—he should begin at once to explore his subject, and spend time in his Freshman year acquiring knowledge
Which will be doubly useful to him when he has less time. In
any case, the freshman should begin his studies this week. Student activities here are numerous and provide an outlet for enthusiasm other than that the freshman has for his studies.
There are scores of executive positions which must be filled
in the next three years by members of '33. Most of these need to
be approached with experience and training, and that can be
acquired in the first year. In sport, also, there Is need for ambitious freshmen to begin now.
To the Class of '33 four years seem aeons long. Days when
he will be a senior are hid In the future. To the senior his freshman days are like yesterday. The Freshman year Is one quarter
of the average student's college career, and the whole four years
go quickly, more quickly than a freshman can imagine.

This year the Muck Page will present a new type of reading matter to
the students of U.R.C. Whereas In the
last three years the articles have been
Inclined to the humorous or burlesque
side there will now he literary effusions and exchange news. This change
takes place due to ths co-operation of
three editors In the "Ubyssey," the
Muok, Exchange and Literary editors
under the name of the Feature Staff.
Tho passing of the regime ot Shrdlu
Btaoln with his farces aud pranks In
the realm of literature will be mourn*
ed by most of the students, but they
themnelveS are responsible. The work
of supplying tour thousand words a
week became the continual grind ot
one or two editors of the paper, since
tew contributions or offers of assistance were received during the two
terms Of last year.
It Is quite apparent that the student body has a sense ot humour but
will do nothing to aid tn pleasing it.
Thus the new policy of a Feature
Staff will remain unless by demand
and contribution the-old Golden Age
ot Muck is revived.

3ese are to be posthumous declare-
draped In obscurity—the rather
safer obscurity of distance. But after
all, many, far more courageous ones
have declared themselves by suoh
means. The Great, because of a sort
of artistic reluctance and the others,
because they have chosen a path unobstructed by those lean foreboding
Shadows—the dissectors—from whose
strange whispers they are tar removed. Yet it really makes no differ*
enoe. That time-revered axiom, 'The
pen ia mightier than the sword' grows
more and more subtle. Sometimes,
indeed, its subtlety sinks to such profundity that one pauses tor a brief
moment in the helter-skeUer of life,
ln skeptical meditation. Thus the matter stands.

old cycle and consider the changes
it brings. Before I am accused of
maudlin Journalese, regard the new
gymnasium whioh has arisen with
such unbelievable rapidity, within
stone's throw of the library. Every
part of lt seems to speak with satisfaction. One can almost hear, "Despite a score of helpless Alma Mater
meetings, despite all ready-made pessimism, despite everything—!"

but to write IL that ls not ao simple.
I can speak with conviction. That is
one matter of contribution?. There is
another ln the form ot a Literary corner ln every Issue ot the "Ubyssey."
The thought of original contributions
has raised false hopes In many literary Editors. I say false hopes because

may be true, but university education
ts primarily a preparation*—not to
the finer points of accomplishment—
but aa a means to arrive at such a
goal. After all, a professor Instructs;
he shows, perhaps, the right path, but
all else Is left to the atudent. The
human animal is essentially selfish;
the foundation of nearly all Inter*
course le based on selfishness, therefor© It stands to rceaon that accomplishment can only be a personal, selfish achievement.

Rugby Coach
The news that Jack Try whit t would
be unable to coach the senior Bnglish
Rugby team this season comes as a
blow to Varsity rugby supporters. In
an interview Mr. Trywhitt said that
he Was sorry that he would not be
with the boys this year but that increased business activity made it impossible. He recommended that the
olub see Bert Tupper and other graduate rugby enthusiasts about securing
their help to coach the squad. These
men, he'believed, had the necessary
experience and ability to build up a
championship team this year with the
material at their disposal.
Trywhitt also spoke ot the seeming
lack of enthusiasm not only among
the college supporters but among
some of the players themselves. This,
he thought, was partly due to the
great number om minor games played,
which, counting delays, postponements, and games with visiting teams
made the season muoh too long. As
a further recommendation Trywhitt
suggested that the Varaity Playing
field be improved and a small grandstand be erected, similar to that at
Queens Park, so that Varsity's home
games oould be played at the college.
During the three years that Jack
Trywhitt has given to coaching the
English Rugby game at the U. B. C,
he has made many friends. The college will havo difficulty finding another coach as capable ahd popular.
The Bnglish Rugby Club and all lovers of the game nope to see him back
with us next year.
"John Just passed me, cussing.and
swearing. He ran in that olgar store.
What could be the matter?"

head lor when they need new clothes—
but principally because we like the species.
We were collegiate once ourselves.
So iuat recently, we decided to Iii up a
cosy dan where Varsily boys could meet
their friends—rest and relax after hectic
struggle* wilh Physics 111. and English
11.—discuss tha eccentricities of ihe Profs.,
study (beh-heht) or just loaf, read our
magaxinet aad smoke our cigsrettei.
Now our den is finished aad we're sure
you will appreciate il.
Please come ia with
your friend*, look il
rvar and slay just as
long as you please —
whenever you pleats.
Honestly, we haven't a single ulterior
motive, There's no obligation of any kind.
Nobody is going lo ask you—or expect
you—lo buy a single thing.
However, we know you won't be able
lo resist our new TALKIE-TOWN

them. They're made

A deep burn coarsens the skin, making it dry and harsh. Now we are
going to be busy all winter helping
the girlies get back that alluring

we should worry, for we are looking
tor work, but It does ssem a shame
that complexions should be ruined because ot a senseless fad. At no place

Where else do you receive so much for a cent? Bat,
of course, you don't have the inconvenience of finding change or trotting to market for a basketful of

keeps honest check on the amount you use—and after
