Last Fall
One of the outstanding men of B.C., Frank Burnett, donor of the Polynesian Collection to the University of British Columbia, passed away while
addressing a meeting of the Canadian Authors Association at the Hotel Vancouver, February _o.
' Mr. Burnett's death came with startling suddenness while he wus ln tho
midst ot giving a toast, and was apparently due to heart disease. His health,
broken In middle age, had been poor for years, although, despite his seventy-
eightvyears he was still active and i r-rr- -   ■.' . ., ■ i,        i i , *
ttoted tor the interest which he took
le present-day affairs.
His voyages to the South Sea Is*
Studs and his collections have brought
i» tame. He has written four books
travel and fiction with hts expert*
lees of Polynesia as a basis. He was
an authority on ethnological sub*
Bts, and a prominent member of the
1.0. Art and Historical Society.
i, At the Fall Congregation last No-
foigber, the Unlveralty of B.C. conferred on him an honorary degree ot
Doctor ol Laws, following bis gift
of Invaluable relios, now housed In
the University library. H1b career as
a rover and adventurer was then
eulogized by President Kllnck.
This desire tor adventure brought
Dr. Burnett from his native land, Scot*
land, to Canada; and was an Influence
in making him a farmer and politician
in Manitoba in the early days, and in
persuading him to follow a life of ad-
Venture in the South Seas with Vancouver as a base for his expeditions.
As * boy lie was intended for a
business career but his own desire tor
travelling prevailed upon his father
to apprentice him at the age of fourteen to a sailing vessel. For four
years he was a sailor and then gave
Up the sea and went to Montreal.
He beeame at various times a purser on a river steamer, a manufacturer's agent and a stock broker, until in 1878 be married and decided to
Visit the west. In 1880 ho began his
career on the prairies which carried
htm to a six-year reeveship and a
JufBt magistracy ln Manitoba. He was
a farmer for years and was nlso in
business enterprises.
His health broke down In 1896 and
he came to Vanoouver in search ot
test. Here he was first a pilot commissioner and interested in Vancouver
business. His search for health and
adventure then took him on his well-
known tours of the southern islands.
During the past few years he had been
engaged on making a comprehensive
collection of New Zealand flora.
Announcing Its program to be one
tor the furtherance of the study of
jurisprudence in thia University, the
Law Club began its career when it
received the official sanction of the
Students' Council.
This Ciub has been formed to meot
a practical end, namely, to provide a
means whereby students may obtain
an Introduction to the study and practise of Law. To further this end, the
Club proposes to secure speakers on
the subject, to hold "mock-trials," and
to carry out similar projects consistent with their policy. Membership Is
restricted to students of the Third
and Fourth Years.
It has further been decided that
the Club will Initiate a collection of
Law Books, in the hope that this will
tend towards the eventual establishment of an adequate Law Library in
place of the scanty shelf which now
Mr, Angus has kindly accepted the
position of Honorary-President of the
Club, while the elected officers are:
F. C. Hall, President; N. MuHsallem,
Vice-President; and R. L. Purves,
The first meeting will be held nn
Thursday, February 27, at 8 p.m., at
the "Oat and Parrot." Mr. II. M. MacDonald, the Dean of the Law School
In Vapeouver, will address the gathering. All members are urged to attend, while those who havo not yet
enrolled are also cordially invited,
Students wishing to enquire about
membership should communicate with
R. L. Purves, the Secretary, via the
Arts Letter Rack.

R.L. Reid Bids Arts'31
To Collect History
Addressing a meeting ot the combined classes of '31 in Arts 100, Friday noon, Mr, Robio L. Reid, K.C., discussed the possibilities for collecting
the raw material of Canadian History.
Before commencing hi. address, Mr.
Reid paid a tribute to Dr. Frank Burnett. "He has shown that there ls a
reason for a collector's existence,"
said Mr. Reid. "I don't think any person will ever get the unlriue ploawure
nut of his collection which he did in
collecting it"
A collection hus a proper function
ln our civilization, he stated, and it
is the duty of a collector to see that
as little as possible of value ls lost.
The collector has two enemies; one
ls the person who does not realize the
value of articles, and the other ts the
gentleman from the south who Is constantly searching for books or articles
to sell.
Sources of history are found In archives and newspaper literature. People's remembrances are valuable in
that they give color and atmosphere,
but they aro not accurate. "Archives
are the bones," he said, "and reminiscences the flesh of history."
Mr. Reid urged the study of British
Columbia history, and said that this
had never had the Intensive research
It desorves. "The history Is there," he
stated, "but lt needs a voice." He
mentioned a number of men who have
been working at thla subject such as
Judge Howay who has studied especially the Spanish era, and Dr. Sage
who has cleared up the life of James
Mr. Reid commended the classes of
'81 for starting on such a proposal as
theirs at this present time. "But," he
said, "keep your eyes on the present,
and gather material for those who are
coming after us, and who will want
to write the history of our day."
Collecting Is a disease from which
one never recovers, he stated. He particularly stressed the point that there
should be no friction between the archives at Victoria, the Vancouver library, and the U.B.C. library. "Keep
our own material In our own province
for our own people," he said in closing. Mr. Reid illustrated his talk with
many anecdotes of the Interesting life
of a collector. Eric North presided
over the meeting.

Arts '20 Relay will have to urge thein

It is a long time since so much interest has been exhibited In the race,
competition for places on the various

challenges were being Issued and accepted as late as yesterday afternoon.
Present odds are In favor of Science

the forecasts of the "wise ones," however the Aggies lu particular are determined that this shall be the case,
and any day during the past week admiring groups of students could hnve
been seen gazing on the likeness ot
the only team of agriculturists who
ever succeeded in securing the coveted trophy. All the Arts teams contain

R. A. FEE, ARTS'25
Hy the death of Dr. Archibald Roderick Fee, only .son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. 11. Fee, 1010 Victory St., Burnaby,
in London on Sunday evening, the
University lost one of her most distinguished graduates. Although only
twenty-four years of age, he has made
an enduring name for himself ln
phyatologlcal research.
During his undergraduate days,
while taking an active part in student
activities, he found time for considerable research and before he graduated he had prepared for publication
two scientific papers. In recognition
ot his research abilities, when in 1926
he graduated with first class honors in
Zoology, at the age of nineteen, he
was awavded the 1851 Exhibition
Scholarship for two years' research
in Britain. Upon going to University
College, London, he had the good fortune to get the opportunity to work
with the physiologist, Dr. Starling,
and was granted his Ph. D. at the end
of two years at the a*:e of twenty-one.
A Belt Fellowship permitted him to
continue his work and In the spring
of the same year the Royal Society of
Ix)i)don asked Dr. Fee to carry on the
special work In which Dr. Starling
was engaged and provided him with
assistant, and facilities to make it
readily possible.
Since then he has had a large measure of HiicresH In his research and
has published several Important papers In Physiological Journals. He had
intended taking a complete course In
Medicine and had already done some
of the work towards thut end. He
was also well on the way towards
getting a 1). Sc. degree,
U.B.C. Delegate
Refused Entry
At U.S. Border
The stopping of Harry Snesarev at
the border left U.B.C. without a student representative at the Student
Pan-Pacific Conference held in Portland, February 21-23. Prof. H, F. Angus, who spoke on the Kyoto Conference which he attended this winter,
stated that the conference was a success In every way.
Paul Meng, general-secretary of the
Chinese Student Association of the
U.S.A. "held the audience spell-bound"
according to Professor Angus. Other
problems discussed were "South America," and "Food and Population In
About a hundred delegates attended
the conference, sponsored by the Y.
M.C.A. and Y.W.CA., hearing speakers from various Pacific Countries and
engaging in general discussion. Orientals and Occidentals were equally
represented at the conclave.
Noma and lock* Score At Varsity
Wins By Narrow Margta
Varsity English Ruggers drew even wtth tho Meralomas In top place of
the Tlsdall Cup series when they defeated Ex-KIng Oeorge (1-5 at Brockton
Point ou Saturday. The effect of the hard training and early morning work*
out was apparent throughout the game. „
The stonewall defence and smashing attacks had the more experienced
West Gliders baffled and while Varsity ran up two tries early in the
game the Ex-Kings were unable to counter until the last few minutes when
Urquharl broke through for the only
score, Bob Rowan converting.
Varsity kicked off and with a series
of forward rushes carried the ball in*
to the Ex-Kings' territory. Bob Rowan,
Kings' fullback, fumbled a kick and
Bill Locke snapped up the ball and
raced thirty yards for Varsity's first
After the kick-off Varsity continued
to press and after some pretty three
quarter runs Norman Intercepted a
pass, and beat the fullback to tick up
another three points for Varsity.
Locke missed the convert, For the remainder of the half the students maintained the offensive, but, although they
worked like trojans, the soggy field
and slippery ball cheated them ot
further score.
ln the second half, King George
started with a bang and forced the
students back to their own two-bit
line. Cleveland sent the play back to
centre with a fine kick. A series of
rushes by the Varsity pack forced the
West Bnders to touch down.
From the two-bit kick, play returned
to mld-fleld when Urquhart, King
Oeorge speed merchant, broke through
on an Intercepted pass, and with only
the full-back to beat, streaked for the
U.B.C. line, However, Cleveland
brought him down with a brilliant
tackle and returned the play to centre
again. King Oeorge pressed hard and
held the play In the Oold and Blue
area, Urquhart finally going through
for the Ex-Kings' only try. Bob Rowan
converted as the final whistle blew.
Saturday next Varsity clashes with
Victoria Rops. in the third McKechnie
Cup game of the series. Word from
Victoria says that the team is on top
form and confident of victory. The
Varsity boys, on the other hand, are
fairly tearing up the turf in their ardour to regain their laurels lost in
Victoria during the Invasion.
Varsity: Cleveland; P. Barratt, Norman, Mercer, Locke, Gaul; Estabrook;
H. Barratt; Murray, Mason, Robine,
Nixon, Ledingham, Martin, Wood.

Scholarship, but no one was found whom the judges considered
measured up to the three-fold requirements specified by the
founder of the trust. Is not this fact an indictment against the
conditions prevailing here? Apparently, not even the very exceptionable student can achieve a balanced education of the high
quality demanded.
The universities to the south of us have worked out the
system of semesters, or quarters. This means a nine-month college year, and possesses the added advantage that students may
drop out for one or more quarters, whether to earn their expenses or because of illness, etc, without having to lose a whole
year. Surely sucb an arrangement ls better suited to popular
education—to turning out the fully-sounded citisen rather than
the specialist—than is our own rigid system, which produces
either a very one-elded scholar or a shallow dllettant.
Class and Club Notes
Law Club
The first meeting of the Law Club
will be held at the "Cat aud Parrot"
on Thursday, February 27, at 8 p.m.
Mr. R. M. MacDonald will address
the meeting, Tea will be available
With the passing of Dr. Frank Burnett, the University of
British Columbia has lost one of Its most outstanding well-
Pre-eminent as an authority on Polynesian culture, Or.
Burnett always took a great interest ln this University and will
be remembered as the donor of the institution's most valuable
possession, the Burnett Collection of Ethnology. The Burnett
Collection is one of the finest on the continent and took many
years to complete. The generosity of Dr. Burnett In presenting
lit to U.B.C. won him the gratitude of the whole University which
Said tribute to his abilities last term by conferring on him an
onorary degree of Doctor of Law.
The Pan-Pacific Student Conference at Portland, which came
to an end on Sunday, has proved rather a fiasco ae far as U.B.C.
is concerned.
The one delegate from this University, Mr. Snesarev, a citizen of Russia, was refused admission to the United States pending inveetigations which would have lasted until long after the
conference was concluded. Mr. Snesarev, sent by the S.C.M.,
wae furnished with full credentials and his debarment by the
Immigration officials showed an unpardonable lack of courtesy,
Fortunately, Prof. H. F. Angus, of the Department of Economics, attended the convention to speak on the Kyoto Conference, so that U. B. C. was not unrepresented, but was without
a student delegate to give the undergraduate viewpoint.
Thus by a combination of circumstances—red-tape of the
U.S. immigration officials and lack of interest on the part of the
Students' Courrcll in not sending a delegate—the University of
British Columbia remains crouching in the backwoods while its
neighbors take an active interest In world affairs.
At the present moment every. student who is reasonably
conscientious about his work is experiencing the familiar biannual twinges of nervous prostration when he contemplates the
fact that examinations begin in seven weeks, and "No foolin',
fellah, I'm only beginning to catch the drift of my five courses."
Next week the seventy or so members of the Musical Society
are presenting their annual production, while duilng the following week the Players Club will produce its annua! play, with
which most of its sixty members have been actively engaged
since Christmas time. Other organizations and interests also
call for the active participation of a certain percentage of the
student body. This is as it should be, but the point is that their
activities do not and can not culminate until shortly before examinations begin, and even then those engaged in them deplore the
tact that they have not been able to put into them the time and
effort they should. The fact is, our college term of seven months
is too short.
We generally think of Varsity as having been in its hey-day
during the last years of its life at Fairview. Graduates and some
professors concur in the opinion that that was the "Golden Age"
of U.B.C. And when we look at the question dispassionately we
must admit there is something to what they say. Fewer organizations existed in proportion to the whole student body, but those
received more genuine support than do our present numerous
societies. A sort of boundless and unconscious enthusiasm, later
designated "college spirit" was so prevalent that no one dreamed
of a U.B.C. to which "apathetic," lethargic" and like descriptives
would one day be applied.
Since the University moved to Point Grey the student body
has grown, but out of all proportion to this increase is the increased number of activities—social, athletic and academic—
though the college term remains as before.
Coincident with this increase has come the Era of Apathy,
for now no one organization can monopolize student attention,
even for a time. The result of this dispersal of the individual's
attention is that he seldom gives any one activity whole-hearted
support, not even hie alleged studies. He has come to college with
the desire to achieve a well-rounded education, but no sooner
has he started than he finds that exams loom near. The reeult
of all this is that the actual work to be done around this place ls
shoved on to the shoulders of a few able people, who will doubtless profit thereby in later life, but who at present lose out
scholastically, and receive no formal credit for thetr extra-curricular work. Our college term is too short for the great majority of
the students to fashion for themselves a well and fully-rounded

An exceptional opportunity for
Canadian University students to make
a tour ot Scotland, England, Holland,
Belgium and France at a reasonable
cost will be offered this summor
through the efforts of the National
Federation of Canadian University
Students. The ooean passages will
be made on the Canadian Pacific
Steamships, leaving Montreal on the
"Mlnnedoaa" Saturday, June 21_t and
returning to Quebec about August $rd
on the "Empress of France."
It is Intended that this will be a
Tour of strictly University people,
open to both men and women, and us
such will have a distinct personality
and character found In no other Tour.
Whenever possible the members of
the Tour will be met by students of
the centres through which they are
passing and an opportunity will thus
be afforded of coming into contact
with phases of European life not within reach of the ordinary traveller.
An experienced leader will have
charge of the Tour and there will
be in addition, a chaperone, Mrs. A.
Gordon Burns ot Toronto, appointed
by the National Federation of Canadian Students.
Fo<- some considerable time there
hae been a definite feeling among
undergraduates that there should be
organized a Tour which would be
definitely a Students' Tour and
would not have included in its numbers any outsiders. With this in view
tho National Federation of Canadian
University Students were urged to
take up the Idea which has finally
become crystallized ln the present
Further Information will appear In
future Issues of the "Ubyssey,1" and
the local N.F.C.U.S. representative,
W. Eric North, will supply additional
data on the 1930 tour.

February 25r 1930;
It is very gratifying to learn of the
successes ot Varsity athletes outside
the campus. Two cases have lately
reached the editorial desk.
In the first place two members of
the U.B.C. women's grass hockey
team have been chosen to play on the
representative team of the league. The
honored stick artists are Muriel Harvie, outside right, and Aubln Burrldge,
centre forward, We heartily commend
these co-eds for their consistent play
and due reward.
The second Instance comes from
McOlll University where Roger Wilson, formerly of Arts '90, has carried
off the heavyweight boxing crown of
tbe college. Wilson was a pre-med student here and was always prominent
in athletic circles,
Tbe Bdltor,
Dear Sir:
As regards the misunderstanding on
the campus about the cross-country
raee, and tn answer to So. 82's letter
and also the spoTtorlal in last Friday's
"Ubyssey," I should like the use of
some at your spaoe.
To set So. '82 at rest, they have been
credited with winning the raoe. Before the raee in question, It was un*
derstood that Stead was to run tor
Arts '83. After the race the points
Were totalled by the Traok Club executive and the result given to tbe
reporters was that Sc. '88 had won.
1 am very sorry if something occurred
after this to make the reporters
change their minds end publish the
report they did. I assure you it was
no fault of the Track Club. Hoping
that this clears up the situation, I am.
Sincerely yours,
"C" class cheSS enthusiasts of the
U.B.C. Club will meet the Anglican
College student pawn-pushers In a
match at 8 p.m. today In the college
The U.B.C, players will be Olund,
McCullock, Moilllet and McHattle, with
S. Jackson and Parker as spares. The
College line-up wtll probably be Hammett, Purves, Klntey, and Scott.
Union College chess-tans have accepted a challenge from the Varsity
club and expect to complete arrangements for the match by the end of
the week.
Arts '20 Relay Race Tc Be
Held Wednesday

Leo Oansner will bear home the laur
els while the Sophomores are banking on their old standby, Hammett.
Dunn will do his best to help the graduating class leave Varsity with a good
athletic record while the diminutive
Allen is determined to show 'em what
the Prosh can do.
It ls expected that the race will be
followed by a long line of cars, some
of which will pick up the weary competitors as they complete their struggles and carry them to the winning
post in time for them to see the results of their efforts. Last year the
Track Club came tn for some criticism as to the way the race was handled and reported. That this will
not be the case tomorrow hae been
promised by representatives of that
organisation who Intend to have the
positions of all teams at all times and
the results of the various laps phoned in to the Students' Council Office
from where they will be broadcast to
the crowd of eager fans in the Quad,
All thlnga considered, tomorrow
bids fair to see one ot the best relays
in the history of U.B.C, and all students are advised to be either In the
Quad or at some point on the course
If they do not wish to miss an exciting race.
Aces Conquer juniors
In Grid Scramble
The Varsity Junior Canadian Ruggers had their line crossed for the
flrst time this season when the Aces
scored against them last Saturday,
early in tbe first quarter. At no time
has the Vnrsity fighting spirit been
more clearly shown than ln thi. game.
Playing against a much heavier and
more experienced team, Including
several Dodakaa, last Benson's Intermediate Champions and candidates
for the Big Four League, they held
them to one touchdown and even
threatened to score In the second
During the flrst period the Aces
progressed steadily down the field on
a series of bucks alternating with
end runs anil culminating with an
unconverted touchdown In the llrst
live minutes of play. After this setback the Varsity defense tightened up
and the Aces were held, pretty well
In the middle of the field, although
Burgess occasionally had to relieve
with a kiek.
Matters remained tho same until the
third quarter when Varsity, gaining
possession of the ball, advanced down
the field to its opponents twenty-five
yard line, The Students, however,
were unable to score and kicked to
the deadline for one paint.
The rest of the game was ln centre
field with small gains for either side
except when Varsity completed a, tor*
ward pass, McLean to Mason, short))'
before the whistle blew.
Team: Crowe, Marion, McKnight,
Mitchell, Cade, Thompson, King, McOregor, Haggerty, Burgess, Hisette,
McLean, McTavlsh, Shatford, Hamlin.
"Lucky Beven" Defeats
Arts *32V'Last Hope"
Sophomores joined tbe Frosh in the
ranks of the "also ran," as far as lnter-class soccer is concerned, when
the nine-man team, which the second
year class succeeded ln mustering,
emerged from Its Friday noon hour
tangle with Science '32, on the short
end of a 8*0 score.
Winning the toss, the Sophs elected
to kick off with the wind behind them.
Soience opened with a rush which
was quickly repulsed by the Arts-
mens defense, whose strong kicking
aided by the wind soon had the ball
at the engineers' end of the field,
where It stayed during most of the
flrst period. Lady Luck, however,
showed a truly feminine partiality for
the "he-men" aud despite numerous
opportunities tor the attackers, half
time found the score still blank,
With the wind at their backs, the
engineers forced a corner early in the
second half and during the ensuing
scramble Anderson coaxed the leather
between the posts to put the Science-
men In the lead. The second tally
came towards the end of the game
when a double-breasted coat and vest,
complete with starched collar and tie,
belonging to F. Mitchell, come in contact with the sphere and caused lt to
sneak through one end of the goal.
The honor of handling the whistle
waa divided between McGregor und
Aalbersberg of the Soccer Club.
Science '32's "Lucky Eleven": J.
Smith; Dirom, Hemsworth; C. Smith,
Carre, Frattinger; J. Mitchell, Lawly,
Anderson, F. Mitchell, Loggle.
Arts '32's "Last Hope": Jorgenson;
Wiles, Jones; Southey, Lee; Punnett,
Cox, Dickson, Fletcher.
Senior Soccerites Draw
With Mountain View
The Varsity Senior Soccermen forced Mountain View Athletic to a scoreless draw at Wolfe School grounds.
Ooalkeeping by Sutherland, former
Varsity star, in the Mountain View net
featured the game and robbed the students ot a score.
Varsity kicked off up the slope and
pressed trom the outset. Partridge
had several shots after good work by
the forwards, while a hard drive by
Phillips was pushed round the post.
Mountain View steadied and the play
wus featured by end to end raids.
Ilynilmaii saved u certain scoro after
thu greasy bull skidded off McGregor's
glove; anil a succession of corners
spelled (lunger for the Gold anil Blue,
Chalmers Anally clearing. Before tho
whistle alt the forwards had shots
but the diminutive Athletic custodian
oiled them.
After the crossover, Varsity peppered Sutherland from ail anglou and
under the continuous bombardment
the lllllmen went to pieces. Phillip's
foul kick was Inches wide while Latta and Cooke both skimmed the bar.
Partridge Anally netted but the play
was called back tor au Infringement.
Crute was right through but shot
wide while a moment lat.r Cooke
missed an open goal, The Athletics
set up a final attack and the Varsity
custodian was lucky to deflect a hard-
drive on to the post. Varsity again
took the offensive and as the whistle
blew, Wright shot wldo.
The Oold and Blue played good
football throughout. Roberts and Chalmers formed an Ideal pair ot backs
while Phillips scintillated with his
swinging passes and long shots, H.
Wright turned In a nice performance
In holding the star Athletlo left-winger. Partridge and Crute were the pick
of a good forward line.
Varsity—McOregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Wright (H), Phillips, Hyndman; Wright (B), Partridge, Crute,
Cooke, and Latta.
Unttirsity of Paris Goos Feminist
After Yoars of NaswHuitiii
PARIS, Feb. 19—(UP)—The Sorbonne, or the University of Paris,
once a rather manly college has gone
quite feminine.
Fifty per cent of the candidates for
bachelor's degrees during 1929 were
women, according to figures of the
University directors. In former years
women students were frowned upon
ami some professors would not admit
them to their classes.
During the past year the Sorbonne
—favorite with Americans — granted
20,000 bachelor's, the greatest number In its history.
On Saturday last the Radio Club
sponsored a visit to station CKMO.
Members gathered at the entrance
to the Bekln's building at 3:80 p.m.,
and visited the broadcasting appar-
attie and power plant on the top floor.
The studio on Hastings street was
next invaded where an advertising
program was witnessed after which
individual members made themselves
at home with vocal experiments on
the "mike." A second visit has been
arranged for Wednesday, February 26.
All wishing to take advantage of this
opportunity are to meet at the Beklns
building at 3: !)0 p.m. sharp Mr. J. A.
