MUSICAL SOCIETY PRESENTS
ANNUAL PERFORMANCE
Tha members ot tbe University Musical Boeloty presented their Rloveuth
Annual Performance In tli« Auditorium on Friday and Haturday evenings.
Tha programme undertaken was un ambitious one for a club that works
under so many disadvantages and has had so little experience. The second
halt of tha programme proved more satisfying than the first. The selections
from "It Trovatore" were particularly good and In Madame Butterfly Miss
Sktrd gave proof of her powers as soloist, and Miss No«ora gave a very
•aalng performance.
The Honorary President, Dr. W. L. MacDonald, In his opening remarks
explained that the varied programmes attempted in the last two years were
to suit the diverse tastes of a larger audience. Great praise, he said, was due
to Miss Kerr, President of the elub for her untiring work and excellent organising ability.
"0 Canada," the flrst item on the programme was somewhat disappointing, possibly due to the tact that In places the orchestra rather overpowered
tht Glee Club.   The next number, however, appealed to all those who have
{for been connected with the University. Starting with a Skyrocket, the
lollege Overture, compiled by Miss Ida Kerr, went trom one well known song
to another. "I'm Tired of Walking Up Hill" held a more pathetic note than
ever before, while the charms of "Clementine" and "My Girl's a Hullaballoo"
wero shown to their best advantage. Great credit is due to Miss Kerr for the
way ln whioh the Overture was compiled. It lead easily from one piece to
another and brought In the most popular of the University songs.
"In a Clock Store" or "In a Clook
■hop" as it Is more commonly known,
conducted by Mr. Haydn Williams was
one of the most successful ot the orchestral selections. Owing to the Auditorium remaining darkened it was
impossible to read the synopsis given
on tho programme but the clocks and
their continual ticking could be distinguished throughout the whole piece.
The various sounds even to the stumbling of an apprentice as he went
about his chores were easily recognised.
The well known "Mon Coeur s'oeuv-
re a ta Voix" from "Samson nnd De-
lila" was sympathetically rendered by
Mr. Harold King in his trumpet solo.
Mention must be made of Miss Kerr's
accompaniments, not only for this
number but also for the violin solos.
They were excellent, and not once by
loud or expressionless play did she detract trom the solo.
The "Scenic Novelty," In which several Indian Lyrics were sung was
somewhat disappointing due to an unfortunate lighting effect. Miss Hudson's solo "The White Dawn is Stealing" was very clearly enunciated.
The other solo ln this item was "The
Indian Love Call" sung by Miss Jean
Woodrow.
The orchestral selection "Sounds
from England" and the violin solos by
Mr. Brooks were all good,
Probably tho most enjoyable ltom on
the programme was the excerpts from
"II Trovatore'1 in which the ever popular "Anvil Chorus" was again heard.
Miss Haddock who sang "Strlda La
Vampa" has a delightful voice and her
solo would have been one of the best
had It not been spoiled by tho repetition ot an Irritating gesture. The duet
"Home to Our Mountains" by Miss
Haddock and Mr. Plommer was good.
Mr, Plommer has a sympathetic tenor
and though the part was small his Interpretation was splendid.
Miss Kathleen Baird took the part of
Mudunio Butterfly lu the excerpt from
Puccini's opera ot that name. Miss
Baird has a beautiful soprano voice
and her easy presence and extreme
naturalness gave her an enthusiastic
audience. She was well supported by
Miss Negora.
The orchestra's Interpretation of
Dvorak's "Humoreske" was one of Its
loast satisfactory performances but the
"Herd Girl's Dream" played before tho
lust Item was good. Miss Frances McDonald showed her complete mastery,
ot technique in her pianoforte solos
but they were at times somewhat lacking in expression.
A baritone solo by Mr. Phillips and
"Land of Hope and Glory" by Glee
Club and Orchestra brought tho performance to a close.
The concert on the whole waa not
quite up to lust year's standard, but,
as Mr. Macdonald said the members of
the club have worked under the disadvantages of measles, inexperience
nnd Insufficient practices. It is a
praiseworthy fact, however, that the
Musical Society has gathered together
ho much talent and in giving students
the opportunity of becoming familiar
with the works of well known composers.

In a P.I.P.A. to'egrum from the University of Washington Dally to the
"Ubyssey," the reinstatement ot members ot the staff of the "Cojumns,"
University of Washington humorous
monthly, was declared to be almost
certain, The "Columns" In their February Issue published an article entitled "Lincoln Applesause," which
professed to be a true survey of the
car.ier of Abraham Lincoln, and supposedly proved him a mediocre politician of not exceptional honesty, of
disagreeable personality and of tragically weak character, elected only as
a compromise between the two parties, because he was not strong enough
to have made any enemies.
However true this account may be,
the Faculty Commltteo on Student

grounds and suspended the author of

In Spite of Council and Megaphones
It may seem difficult to place the responsibility for the
existence of n situation which is undeniably well-established
on the campus and, in order to help a decision in the matter,
we disclaim, in the coolest possible manner, any share in that
responsibility and do not hesitate to divide the blame fairly
equally between the students at largo and the Students' Council. We cannot but feel that, because of that situation, students are missing a good deal of the pleasure incidental to a
college course, when one may safely be a radical; but the indifference of students generally to whatever is done or is not
done,, has given rise, on the campus, to a condition which
permits the undergraduate body, dead on its feet, to have the
Students' Council dead on its hands.
We believe an institution cannot flourish without some,
adverse circumstance to make it fight for its existence, nnd a
strong, periodical dose of that sort of criticism commonly,
and just, as mistakenly, called destructive would help to arouse
student life from its text-book-induced torpor. (En passant,
we do not weep •'destructive criticism" as if that were an
offence against the rules; we like the stuff ami are, in the
words of the bill-board "crazing for it.")
In simple words, of Hot too many syllables, we announce
that we have thrown out some useful little pointers to the
student body and the Students' Council alike, with the result
that comes invariably of sowing in stoney ground. To give
u few concrete examples (so dear to the popular mind,) we
asked, in i\ former editorial, for noon-hour meetings under
the auspices of the L. S. 1). We got one; the only one of the
year; it was not well-attended. The students (our reading
public.) hud got out of the habit of attending meetings that
savoured somewhat of the intellectual and now can do no more
than gather at an occasional pep-meeting. No student wrote
us appealing for those meetings the L.SJD. is supposed to hold
no word on the Students' Council was uttered to discover
whether the Ii. S. 1)., which functions' directly jnder the
Council, was doing its part.
We advised the changing of the course of the Arts '20
Kelay; none of the students expressed an opinion ih the
matter. The Council deplored the front-page space devoted
to our presentation of the ease. We replied. To this day
we don't know what the students thought of tho slight conflict of opinion between two ol' the largest executive bodies on.
the campus, both of tliem responsible for their actions directly
to the student  body.
The race was elwiuired, and successfully run. The students saw the finish because Ihey couldn't very well help it,
and went iiwny satisfied Mint they bad done their part. They
hadn't. Km' all Ihe coiiinient evoked hy the proposal to change
the coiii'se, a proposal which should have occasioned some
interest, we think we would |m\e been successful ill gelling

to those Miking part, the value of all these is highly problematic, The students, however, lake very little interest in them;
so little irleresl, indeed Hint they have not set about the improvement of our delnitinj; standard, or even taken the easier
course of fidvising discontinuance of the contests, We recommend the acceptance hy them of tlie former alternative, nnd

VARSITY COMES FROM BEHIND
TO BEAT REPS IN LAST FEW
MINUTES OF CRUCIAL GAME
Two Touch-downs in Rapid Succession Malta Final
Scoro 12-8
The gume started with a Vancouver rush, the Varsity baeks doing soma
heavy tackling before the ball was Anally cleared. Once the initial jockeying
waa over, the Varsity players hit their stride and carried the ball wall Into
Vancouver's ground. Noblo gave the rah-rah crowd their flrst thrill whan
with a magnirlceut thirty yard run immediately in front ot tha Varsity $**.
tion, he ploughed over the line, unfortunately losing the soore by touching the
corner flag. From the resulting dropout Vancouver forwards pressed down
to the Varsity line giving Mclnnes some anxious moments before Sparks
broke through on a long dribble. Dogged tackling kept the flag in midfleld
until Ave minutes before tlmo Dertle Barratt started a three-quarter run which
culminated In Baton going across for the flrst score. A minute later Tupuar
broke away for a spectacular sixty yard run only to lose the ball on a tot'
ward pass when Anally tackled.
After the rest Vancouver started a determined attack, and by superior
strength forced ahead to Varsity's line. Smashing tackling by Qustafson and
Wells ruined more than one probable Vancouver soore before Mclnnes hooted
the ball far down the wing. Eaton, following up fast, took the ball the length
of the field forcing the Rep. fullback to touchdown. Following the kick the
Rep, brought the ball to the Varsity twenty-five where a long pass lobbed out
to McLeon on the wing resulted in his scoring Vancouver's initial points.
This reversal fired both our team nnd supporters to greater efforts, a
sudden attack on Vancouver following the klckoff. Play ranged on the Rep.
line until a free kick awarded the defenders sent the ball to centre field.
Here Locke scooped the ball from the loose and made a magnificent forty
ynrd run before passing the ball to Baton.
The latter went across at the flag
but circled around behind the posts
before planting the ball, thus once
again giving Varsity the lead 6—3.
The lead was short-lived, however,
for a few minutes later tbe Vancouver
half threw the ball in fast from a Una-
out close to the line to White, former
Varsity star, who plunged aoross to
tie the score. Humphries made a neat
convert to give Vancouver an 8-8 least
Determined to increase this margin
Vancouver again attacked following
tbe klckoff, and for twelve minutes the)
ball never left the Varsity twenty-five.
Time and again the giant Rowan, Vancouver ace, came crashing through the
Varsity backs tor what seemed certain
scores but each time a crushing tackle
by Oustafson, the sickening thud o(
which could be heard in the stands,
threw him back. Every time a man
broke through Maclnnes and Locke
working ln perfect unison hit him front
each side, robbing him of all scoring
ambitions. During all this dogged defense the Varsity supporters were on
their feet keeping up a roar of encouragement, a roar which suddenly became a shrlok of delight when Eaton
finally relieved with a long kick. Vancouver had plainly shot, their bolt
while the wonderful condition of Varsity wan beginning to tell. With seven
minutes to go Varsity started one ot
those cyclonic fighting finishes which
calls to mind the days oil the Wonder
Toam. With the crowd crying for a
touchdown Wells Btarted a three-quarter run in centre field which brought
the ball to the Vancouver line where
Locke scooped up the ball, made the
opening and passed to Baton who
streaked across for tho score which
gave Varsity a 9-8 lead. With only
four minutes to go victory seemed assured but to leave no doubt tbe Varsity team opened out with all reserve
energy and swept the Rep. backwards
by sheer speed. Thirty yards out Oustafson took the ball and lived up to hla
won reputation by crumbling through
tlie whole Vancouver scrum, passing
to Mahon when finally outborne by
sheer weight Mahon completed the
play hy plunging across tor a final
scoro in the lust second of the gama
with three liurly Vancouver men
draped about him.

THE JUNIOR MEMBER
The office of Junior Member wns instituted last year as a position
on the Studenta' Council in place of the Editor-in-Chief, it being felt
that the editor would bo in a butter position to comment freely on
atudent activity if he did not sit ou Council. The Junior Member is
some member of the junior year so that in the event of all other
members of Council being seniors there will still be someone the
following year who, colloquially, "knows the ropes" of atudent
government. There are no stable duties to tho office, it being regarded more as a roving commission.
The office has been held for the first time this year, nnd whether
or not it haa been a success is now an open question. Already comment has appeared on the correspondence column of this paper, comment not wholly favourable. The single apparent advantage of the
position ia that indicated above—in the event of the rest of the
Council being in the graduating year, there would remain one experienced porson to guide the Council of tho following year
In these circumstances the Junior Member would appear to be
the inevitable choice for President of the Alma Mater Society the
following year and would doubtless attain the position solely because
of thii experience; but the Junior Member can be selected only on his
record as a sophomore, his executive experience usually being confined to clasa offloes, for it is seldom that a sophomore fills any important position in a major society. The lower years are notorious
for their lack of discernment in the selection of class officials, the
main qualification being a glib tongue.
Thus it is quite possible that a person obtaining some slight
prominence as a freshman be elected to class office in his sophomore
year and on the strength of this position, regardless of his executive
ability, rise to Junior Member. The following year this man will be
gaid to be the logical choice for President. Again while a man may
make a very satisfactory Junior Member ho may lack the initiative
and leadership necessary as President. More student opinion should
be heard and muoh more careful consideration given concerning the
relation between these two offices.
COUNCIL AND MEGAPHONES
(Continued from Page 1)
would welcome a few remarks on the situation from anybody
in, say, Arts '30.
We wonder now if all the students are entirely satisfied
with the way Men's and Women's athletics have this year been
conducted. If anyone has a real grievance to air, or a useful
suggestion for the guidance of executives this is the time and
the place to let us hear of it. Criticism, favourable or otherwise, must be openly stated before it is of any use; and some
should be forthcoming once in a blue plinse of the moon.
Some students may wish to take part in what promises
to be another fiasco of a Theatre Night, sponsored by the
Rooters' Club (in our eyes, a very superfluous organization
which has still to apologize for a,' regrettable song-book), and
permitted hy the Students' Council. We don't care to he
seen among those present and hope that we are not alone in
a distaste for such pointless parades of "college spirit." as
we have reason to suppose this will bo. Evidently students
don't know of the lucky circumstances that saved them from
some of the workings of this same organization; the Hooters'
Club was authorized by Council to purchase one thousand
trick megaphones at an outlay of almost one hundred dollars,
(and during the same week a policy of economy was answered
from Council.) Through these megaphones students were expected to amplify the cacophonous outbursts which encourage
rugby teams to slaughter. (This on top of the fact that, without megaphones at spectators' mouths, our rugby fifteen played
the Maoris, and the result . . . . ) Obviously the Students
Council did not pause very long to consider whether there was
any necessity of buying the contraptions; if it had done so, it
ia posible tbe purchase would not have been authorized. If
the Rooters' Club can think of nothing else but ways to spend
Alma Mater funds, there is no very good reason for its continued existence; money goes fast enough. We suggest that
the Rooters' Club use our columns lo plead its cause. The
Students' Council might also come forward and tell why it
considered the proposals for even a few minutes. The students
nt large have given il no thought.
A short time ago we hinted to the Students' Council that
more frequent Alma Mater meetings would have a saliilary
effect upon the student body and might, if properly conducted,
arouse some sort of interest in undergraduate affairs. We
favour the institution of such meetings; we don't know
whether the Students'Council is af one with us in this opinion,
for the simple reason that is has not said a solitary word concerning it,    May we go as far iin to ask it for a statementt
i'ntil such meetings are commenced we offer Ihe columns
of this paper as media for criticism of all nets affecting student
affairs. If none is forthcoming we shall endeavour to supply
the deficiency; if we are the object of criticism, all the better;
for, as we have said, we thrive on it (please let it be "destructive;" it's better than the other sort.) If our share is kept
from us, ive hope to derive a vicarious pleasure from seeing
others swallow the dose.
Correspondence
The Editor,
"Ubyssey"
Dear Sir:
I quite realize that in thus daring to
criticize one of your editorials through
the columns of this, your paper, I am
laying myself open to that caustic
satire with which your brilliant editorial self sees At to "answer" the arguments of your critics.
In the front-page editorial of the last
Issue of your paper—an editorial, by
the way, which was evidently a 'filler'
from the editorial pen—yon again
launch Into an Ill-considered and wholly un-called-for attack on the mentality of the undergraduate readers of
your most valuable paper (you find
that easy, don't you?), This time the
outburst Is caused by the fact that the
student body has not assisted you lu
providing "copy" by expressing,
through the columns of the "Ubyssey,"
Its opinions on the proposed constitutional amendments of the A,M.S.
I fully agree with you that an exchange of views on this matter Is desirable and, Indeed, necessary. But,
sir, you yoursolf are to blame for the
absence of such a discussion. Can you
expect any ordinary student to dare to
disagree with you in the correspondence column of the "Ubyssey," when,
as has occurred on several occasions
In tho past, you will most likely add a
short caustic, uncalled-for, and unfair,
"Editor's Note" to his letter.
This, sir, Is the explanation of the
student apathy, on the correspondence
question at least.
Your treatment (brilliant but excessively unfair treatment, It was) ot a
recent letter from council and, more
particularly, of two letters from Mr.
Drown, Is, In ltsolf, to my mind sufficient to explain the present lack of
correspondence In your columns.
Yours for a "square deal" to correspondents to the "Ubyssey."
F. H. Stevens.
Editor's .Note—We thank our correspondent for this letter although we
cannot agree with all his statements.
We must remind him that the letters
to which he has reference wero, like
his own, gratuitous and adverse criticisms ot our policy, which demanded
an answer, and we dealt with them
according to tho merit we saw in them.
We are glad he agrees that the constitutional amendment necessitates an
exchange of views, but And lt difficult
to reconcile this agreement with his
charge that, in seeking to promote
that exchange, we were merely trying
to trick the students Into supplying us
with "copy." His views on the proposed amendment will be welcome.
We comment only upon those letters
which, by questioning our actions, demand that comment.

Montreal, Feb 21 hlNivganllng
tlie (Heinle of fashion, the corporation
of Mcdlll 1'ulverslly In entering the
first change In undergraduate attire
In ihiny years, has decreed that
skirts be lengthened. It must be of
"plain black stuff, falling not more
than half way between knee and
ankle."
"Hudibras"
(Continued from Page 1)
columns of the University of Washington Dally, condemned the faculty action on grounds whioh appear very
good Indeed. According to the "Dally," the faculty erred first in suspending both the editor and the author of
the article, since the editor only is
responsible for views expressed in the
paper.
Besides this point there is a question
of principle involved. It Is the concensus of opinion that the press is free
to express itself on any subject, as
long as it is confined to sane, considered view expressed ln'non-llbellous
language. The "Dally" and the university students maintain that there is
too much priggish faculty intervention
In affairs which should be left to the
students themselves.
It Is time, according to the "Dally"
that students be considered as responsible men and women, and be allowed
to depart themselves as such. In regard to this matter of too close supervision of such matters, tt Is notable
that a professor In the University of
Washington was dismissed because he
chose to use a book of Bertrand Russell's ln English I. To many critics
nnd such actions savor very little of
the democratic spirit which Is supposed to he the essence of life In the
good old If. S. A,
However, lest we think that we Canadians have it pre-emption on democracy, a somewhat similar situation
hus arisen ln the University of Manitoba. "The Manltoban," the undergraduate Journal of that college, has
followed a policy of continuous criticism of Student Council actions. Whether or not the criticism was merited
we cannot say. Certainly if lt was
merited, lt was tho duty of the editor
to print such criticism.
The editor also refused to publish a
financial report submitted by the Council, and seems to have irritated the august executive body on several other
small mutters. Tho result of this
course of action waa a Council suspension of the "Manltoban," the staff
being asked to resign.
The counter-irritant was the publishing, under tho private control of
the defunct staff, a paper known as
the "Hed Herring," This little paper,
"published In the Interests of freedom
of speech" was largely of a humorous
nut ure. though there wore also certain
very pungent remarks on Council af-
iiilrs. Though the smoke has not yet
entirely cleared away, the "Hod Herring'' lias ceased publishing, nnd It
se, him in be probable that an amicable
arrangement will presently be reached.
THI MORAL
The Issue In both eases wits the
same the freedom of the press to pub-
ll'-li Independent criticism. And It Is
clear Hint lu both rns»s the clearing up
of the difficulty resulted In a very definite step lu that direction,

Oue thing Is sure: this University
is not a stadium with a college attached. For example, take last Saturday's rugby game.
Probably that game was the most
exciting In all the history of MoKeohnle Cup rugby. Varsity had a magnificent team, that, by sheer hard
work, has defeated the picked stars
of every Important rugby club combined, it was a game (o dream or. It
was a real moving • picture thriller,
with llrst one team ami then the other
leading; nnd then Varsity winning by
sensational scoring In ihe last minutes ol the game.
The rooting wus wild, delirious ami
spontaneous. The organisation was
mlr, but many of the students kept
on the opposite side of the Held to
where the cheering was going on.
At the end of tbe game, however,
(he students behaved like elderly ladles and gentlemen, and not like undergraduates. Thoy did NOT cheer
the team as they left tho field. They
did NOT rush out and carry the players shoulder high to the dresslug
room—as the team deserved. They
did NOT come forward lu a body to
shake hands with those players who
had done so much for the University.
They did NOT stage a demonstration
in front of the grandstand, as befitting the occasion, or parade downtown in their enthusiasm,
Instead of all this, they sauntered
slowly from Brockton Point, with
their Freshettes, remarking: "It was
a nice game, wasn't It?"
Nobody could mistake them for
Babbits. Could anyone mistake them
for real college students?
AFTERNOON TEA
Haldane glanced at his watch. It
was rather late, after four o'clock In
fact, but that should be safe enough.
Oeorge never came home before six-
thirty, and often not until an hour
Inter than that. ... He rang the bell
of Suite 23, and in un Instant Viva
was In his arms. Half unconsciously
he noticed changes from the previous
afternoon-—first she had parted her
hair down the middle Instead of to the
right; her rouge tasted differently;
end hoi powder as well was of a new
variety. Hal mentally complimented
hlmsdf on his observance; this would
make conversation ut tea time, If necessary. . . . They sat on the Chester-
Held tn front of a large fireplace. A
little flurry of snow outside made the
room delightfully cosy by way of contrast. . . . Viva pulled Hal's head
down and Rased a long while Into hla
dark eyea. "Darling, do you love me
more than anyone In tin* world?" she
asked for about, the sixth time. "Of
course, you little egg," replied Hal.
"But you mustn't let me come to you
so often, or you will begin to luite me
us much as you do your husband."
"(di! I never s'uill. My husband Is so
cold, so reserved, so wrapped up In
his own business—lie Is what you rail
ii a cord-wood slick. I a.sl< you, how
could I love a slick of cord wood--I,
who but u few months ago lived in
the Hue de lu I'alx?" "Of course you
couldn't," agreed Hal, ami the conversation lapsed.
The fire went on burning, tho muffled ticking of the clock and the friend
ly sniffling grunts or Monte, the collie under the table, went on and on.
. . . Suddenly, a heavy tread wns
hoard In the hall. Hastily their embrace was broken. Hal looked at his
watch—five past six! This, then, was
the end. He wondered whether Oeorge
would prefer revolvers, law courts or
flNts. Viva flow across the room ns
silently as a bird, handed Hal his
coat and hnt, opened the window and
Indicated the fast whitening Are escape. "Undignified, bu necessary,"
she whispered. "Theio Is a drop of
six feet at the bottom. Telephone me
to-morrow morning nt eleven." As
Hal carefully descended the Iron ladder, he took a peep through the curtains, . . . lie saw n young man care

Chapter VI.
Jasper Prout, on the outskirts ot
the crowd, chuckled gleefully to himself. He turned to O'Hlggln who
stood beside him. "Oood stuff!" he
exclaimed, "That's the finish of Our
Hardy! hook at all the cash." He
thrust his hand In his pocket and
drew out a wad as triumphantly ns n
student paying his debts at the Cafeteria.
Anger surged through Jane Htone as
she heard the words. Hhe had been
Miiuidlng behind (Tout In the crowd,
anxious to see what wns going on,
not knowing the real cause of the
excitement,
"You brule!" she exclaimed, "I'll
ship your sassy fnce!"
A howl of glee rose from the crowd
as the library door swung round,
emitting a struggling mob of Aggies.
In their midst was u man, struggling
and fighting like a loafer being ejected from the Pub.   He was Ous Hnrdy!
"Lynch him I" shrieked the crowd.
"Remember Hen No. 6!" Relentlessly the maddened farmers bore him
to the nearest telephone pole. An
agile Freshman climbed to the cross
beam and fixed the rope. "Now say
your prayers", sneered Nick Wagoner,
"Vou are going to suffer a worse
death than our beloved Hen."
A desparlng shriek, like that of a
victim of an English prof,, rose from
tho crowd. Jane Stone had learned
the worst. She struggled forward
through the crowd, and stood before
the would-be executioners.
"He la innocent!" she cried, "Stop!
Jasper Prout Is the man!"
For a minute the mob leaders stood
speechless In amasement, like a
Sophomore getting 14 for an English
theme. "Where's Prout?" snapped
the detective at last, "Bring him forward."
Willing hands in the crowd forced
the gambler forward to confront his
accuser. His face was white, but his
air of bravado well befitted him as
a common room lounger. "Well?" he
snarled, "What proof have you?"
Jane's lip curled with Bcorn. "Where
did you get that money?" she demanded. "By writing chocolato ads," he
snld coolly. A roar of approbation
rose from the mob.
"You were pleased that Ous was lu
trouble", she exclaimed. "That ain't
no proof", be replied lightly, In the
flippant tone of Pat Keeling speaking
to a professor. "Where did you get
those feathers on your coaBt?" Jane
cried abruptly. For a minute Prout
paused In confusion. "Pillow fight ln
my fiat house," he answered, "Lots of
funny things happen In i'rat-houses."
"You bet!"  roared  the mob.
"(let out of here", roarer the leader
of the Aggies, "Lets get on with our
necking party,"
A loud blast ol the klaxon caused
nil eyea to turn low mil the road. An
automobile racing toward them at top
speed!

Skyrocket.
"Time and Tide-"
It waa early morning. The flrst bell
had Just sounded to warn all students
within hearing that it waa time to
scamper to the lecture rooms.
Students arriving from the world
outside enter the Arts Building by tho
Faculty entrance and noisily shuffle
along tbe Faculty corridors—quite forgetful of the fact that in a fow more
moments the stern vlsaged men to
whom that corridor Is dedicated will
begin their day's labours. Eventually
these students reach the common
rooms. Here the men stop a moment
to light their morning fag and to exchange a cherry "hello" with some
bosom friend. Here also, tho woman
rest for a moment on their Inviting
sofas and davenports and broadcast
lament news acquired since the pre.
vIoum afternoon :--how Jack came to
quarrel with Betty,—or the new dress
Bessie wore to the danoe last evening,
Tho second bell goes. The tinkling
sound is actually meant to tell the
students that the day's leoture will
now begin. But it really convoys ihe
Impression to the vast majority that
It Is time to go to the looker rooms.
Here keys of all siies and descriptions—long and slender, small and
big, are brandished aloft and after one
or two turns In the locks, the doors
swing open. An Indescribable con-
fusion reigns within. Books literally
tumble over one another,—big books,
small books, and little books. Here
and there an odd Issue of the "Ubyssey" protudes Its milk-white surface
for the first gasp ot the morniug air.
An "Anthology of verse" is balanced
very neatly on the narrow neck of an
Ink bottle, To all this is added more
—suitcases, hats, coats, scarves,
gauntlets, and the morning newspaper.
After somewhat hastily tumbling such
oddities Into their ponderous shelves
the students Invariably extricate a
book or two and swiftly swinging the
door to, hasten away.
Just outside the doors ot the lecture rooms, the women pause to see
it their nose Is ohlny. It it is out
comes the invaluable compact. If it
isn't, nut comes the compact anyway.
The men pause to straighten ties and
to step on half-consumed cigarettes.
The Btudent knocks at a door. Without waiting for a reply he turns the
knob and slips within the room. The
door is again closed. The student
gains his seat. No sooner has be
done that and the professor has resumed where he left off then comes
another knock and another student
enters. And so lt goes on until the
lecture Is well nigh finished.
No doubt this Is an unsatisfactory
state of affairs for the ktudly professor, but what can he do? If he
complains, the students make remarks
about cars being lute, and of long
waits for the "red busses." And what
can the dear students do—surely they
are not. to blame if tho clock Is slow
or If Ihey refuse to gulp their break-
last?
Someday the powers-that-be will
awake nnd abolish all nine o'clock
classes. Hut what Is the use? The
same thing would still happen.
THE LAND OF THE FREE?
The worthy Cnlverslty of Washington "Columns" has been suppressed
on account of an article about President Lincoln.

Let's Be Radicals !
Aa Answer to
"LET'S BE BABBITS"
Let's be Radicals.
Radicalism Is a term which has
been applied again and again to that
type of criticism known as "destructive." But what 1b wrong with destructive criticism? Nothing! The
fault lies with the criticised. How
can one ever expect to see bigger and
better institutions at this University
without the criticism needed to prod
people on to scrap and then reorganise
existing conditions.
A radical is a Bolshevist. Give a
Bolshevist an idea, a lot of blood and
thunder, nnd he will destroy the entire
world and build it. up again a far better place than it ever was before.
Let's be Radicals.
The first prerequisite is intellectual
activity, the next Is physical stability.
One must not be a Babbitt, a Rotarl-
au, a Councillor, or an executive head.
All these Imply still life.
A Radical Is a born agitator and
above all else a knocker of the existing order of thing. He picks on one
Idea or a Ret of Ideas, a person or n
class of persons, and hammers and
hollers; kirks and knocks; squeals
and squawks until he Is either Imprisoned  or deported.
Hut his work Is not In vain. Others
influenced by his example rise to take
tils place. They are the ones who
make the wheels of progress revolve
and thus cause reforms to be enacted.
If It were not for these men we would
get in the rut with no possibility of
getting out, we would die of boredom
or so stagnate that we would suffer
"death In life."
Let's Join the ranks of Radicalism.
A Radical Is a pessimist. He goes
around with an air of haughtiness and
Irritability. He slams his class, his
college, his foes (for he never has any
frlendH), for all he Is worth. He really believes it Is the worst possible
college of all possible colleges. But
hp posseases that rare complex of
making things go. He hollers, bellows,
tears, rips, and even uses destructive
criticism. ..But he does make people
see faults and weaknesses. Although
Ihey may nof bo aa frightful or as
terrible as he pictures them yet he
has to make them hume so that even
tbe executive bodies can se« them
A great many people in this University are dled-ln-lhe-wool reactionaries.
They think Ihe Council perfect, the
present system the best possible, and

Soccer XL Again Drops Game;
Beaten by Tricky St. Saviour's
Playing splendid football, tbe Varsity first soccer team, ln spite of several
handicaps, held the tricky St. Saviour's eleven to b 3-2 score in the first period
of an Interesting soccer game at Athletic Park last Saturday afternoon. The
Varsity players, however, could not maintain the pace they had set, and St.
Savior's stepped out in the second half, winning the game by a final score ot
6-2.
The Saints deserved their victory, and the score was a fair Indication of
the play. But the students deserve credit for the fight they put up against
this team, which on the previous Saturday had trimmed the undefeated Nanaimo city eleven by a score of 3-0. Morover, two of our players, Shields and
Robertson, were both In poor condition us a result ot sickness and Injury, but
they plucklly turned out for tho game when thoy were needed. Two of the
regulars, Phillips and Wadlngton were unable to play. As a result the line-up
bad to be shifted and the players In their new positions were unused to playing together as a team. In spite of these handicaps, the youthful Varsity
eleven were able to hold one of the best toams In the province to a 5-2 score.

What's the Matter With
3rd Soccer Team ?
The Third Soccer team went down
to defeat on Saturday before the
league-leading Capllano team. Defeated by six goals to nil, the seven
men who had spirit enough to travel
to North Vancouver in order to uphold the name ot the University, gave
the winning team a lesson in football.
It was only the handicap of having to
play seven men against eleven that
caused Varsity to lose.
Not only has it been impossible to
find eleven men ln the University
who are willing to turn out every Saturday and play, but the very regrettable fact must also be faced, that in
the last six months this team has
not had ono single solitary supporter.
No wonder there is no rush of volunteers to try for a place on the team.
The third team is the developing
ground from which Varsity's future
Pacific Coast League team will be
derived, and as such ought to have at
least a half-dozen or so weekly supporters.
The seven men who put up such a
splendid fight against superior numbers were the following—goal, E. King;
backs, M. Legg and L. Robson; halfback, Chet Miles; forwards, A. England, W. Brown and R. Keenlyslde.
McKechnie Rugby
(Continued from Page 1)
No Varsity man starred, tor the
whole team played together as a perfectly co-ordinating unit, all tbe tries
being scored at the end of passing
movements in which several players
participated. The real star ot the
game was a certain wild Irishman with
a broad smile and penetrating voice
standing by the dressing room. The
vast difference between the team
which was defeated 31-6 by Vancouver
and the squad which held the Maoris
12-3 and beat Vancouver 12-8 can be
explained by one word—Tyrwhltt; Varsity is in perfect physical condition because of tbe high speed two hour practice three times a week which he has
instituted. The Maoris declared Varsity to be the most vigorous and consistent tackiers they had met, this being solely due to Tyrwhltt making the
players tackle, tackle, tackle until they
were physically sick. Vursity's present ability lo stand the roughest
knocks can be attributed to the way
Tyrwhltt rough-housed with tbe players on the frozen field, while the wonderful teamwork Is a result of the persistence, with which he has reproved
selfishness and built up a fraternal
team spirit outside practice hours by
being the youngest and peppiest of the
gang.
CANADIAN RUGBY
The critical game of Varsity's Intermediate Canadian Rugby team is
scheduled for next Saturday at. Me-
Bride Park. The Meralomas have
added several new and good men to
their line-up, and they have been
practicing regularly. This makes
tliern a very hard team to beat.
The Meralomas beat. Westminster
without trying. They have a heavy
line, und a fast, shifty backfleld. Ii
the Hlue and Gold team can trim the
.Meralomas, Ihey win the league and
tlie Lisle Fraser Cup. II they lose,
tlie two teams are tied, and u playoff v. ill be necessary. It Is absolutely Imperative Unit Varsity beat the
Meralomas on Saturday, ami keep the
schedule clear of defeats.

and combining well. In a short time
Rvunn tested the opposing goallo with
a nice shot from close ln, but the latter
managed to save. Scon after, Todd
mado a well placed cross to Qaudin In
front ot the goal but the latter missed
this chance to score. A few minutes
later, Ledlngham secured the ball from
a scrummage, and drove ln the first
counter for Varsity. This was followed by some hard checking and
clever foot-work on the part of both
teames.' During one of the Varsity onslaughts, Todd drove in a hard shot
from the left wing, which just mlsaed
the goal by Inches. In the counter
attack, Crute missed the ball and the
Saints equalized wilh a shot which
gave Anderson no chance to save.
Varsity, however, soon regained
their lead. Immediately after the kick-
off Baker secured the ball and made a
well-placed pass out to Todd. As he
neared the opposing goal, Todd centered to Qaudin, who finished off this
Veil engineered play by tricking the
back and beating the goal keeper for
Varsity's second counter. The Saints
were not long in evening up the score
again; a well-placed corner kick was
responsible for this goal. The play
ranged up and down the field with
both teams striving for the lead. Crute
was not playing in his usual good form,
although he made some ulce saves,
and Baker was not as effective as usual ln this half. Towards the end ot
the period .St. Saviour's scored again,
making the half time score 8-2.
After the Interval, St. Saviour's
gradually assumed the offensive, and
controlled the play for the rest ot the
game. It was in this half Anderson
demonstrated his ability as a goalkeeper. Time after time the Saints
drove shots from all angles at the Varsity goal, and time after time Anderson saved. He received a great ovation from the fans, and fully deserved
It. Finally, however, the Saints tricked Anderson and scored their fourth
goal. The Varsity forwards could not
get away In this halt and as a result
the students had few chances to score.
Shields was putting up a good fight in
spite of feeling off color. Robertson
received a nasty kick in the head
which slightly dazed him; nevertheless he finished out the game ln a very
plucky manner. Wright was working
I'.ard and was instrumental In breaking up several rushes of the Saints.
Just before the final whistle blew St.
Saviour's tallied, making the final
score 5-^,
Elmer Anderson, Al Todd, and Mel
Gaudin, were the outstanding players
for Varsity. Warden and Evans played
well In the flrst half. Baker worked
hard In the second half. In fact the
whole team played an Improved game
considering their handicaps.
The line-up: Anderson, Crute,
Shields, Robertson, Wright, Ledlngham, Warden, Evans, Gaudin, Baker,
and Todd.
