invited to air their views on the aubject.
Debating is, of course, one of the
main activities of the Society. Inter-
Class debates will be held as soon as
possible, in order to allow plenty of
time before examinations begin.
Class literary representatives are
urged to get in touch with the M.L.S.
executive immediately, to organize debating teams from the different years.
At present time Arts '28 holds the
handsome shield and has every Intention of retaining it for at least another year. Interclass debates will
be held during the noon hour so that
all students may attend.
Two university teams will again enter the City Debating League, with redoubled efforts to carry off the trophy.
This league includes the crack debating teams of auch well-known Vancouver organizations as the Y.M.C.A.,
Gyro Club, and Law Students, who
will prove worthy of our steel.
Contests will probably be arranged
with Victoria College and the principal Vancouver High Schools. As these
activities will be limited to the Freshmen and Sophomores, an opportunity
is afforded the forensic stars of Arts
'30 to distinguish themselves.
Inter-Collegiate debates with the
Universities to the south and east
will occupy the time of our more
brilliant speakers, For example, the
U.B.C. will probably again enter the
Prairie Debating League against the
Universities of Alherta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Varsity's end of
the organization of these debates Is
conducted by the Debates Manager
rather than by the M.L.S., but close
co-operation is assured.
A feature of the year will be the
Men's Oratorlal Content. Ample opportunities tor try-outs will he afforded to every man In the University,
and it ia expected that a large number ot competitors will enter tho lists.
The contest will be held either late
this autumn or early next spring.
The Men's Literary Society remains
a closed organization with limited
membership. All male students who
are interested In public speaking aro
eligible tor membership, and applications are now in order. Prospective
members should either send a note to
the Secretary, Mr. D. Murphy, or see
any member of the executive, It Is
advisable to act at once.
President and Chancellor
Address the Student Body
Addresses f ivon by Deans also.    Unusually large number
of Freshmen attend.   Increased Registration.
The twelfth session of the University of British Columbia was officially
opened on Tuesday morning, September 88th. For half an honr after the
door* ot the auditorium were opened the students kept pouring in, And tor
some time after the faculty had taken their place* the student* continued to
enter. The auditorium wa* crowded to capacity and an overflew crowd filled
the bail.
Despite the rain, and the fact that it was their flrst experience of uni-
veroity life for the freshmen, everyone was happy. It was good to aee th*
faculty procession again, a dignified procession headed by Chancellor lie*
Kechnie and President Kllnck. When the members of tbe procession had
taken their seats, every student expectantly awaited the President'* address
of welcome.
The President began by wholeheartedly welcoming all the students. In
particular he extended hi* best wishes to the freshmen and expressed the
hope that they would soon become accustomed to unlveralty lite. Having
welcomed the students, he then greeted the faculty. Referring to the faculty
he laid in part. "Theae we welcome to all the duties and responsibilities, as
veil;as to ell the right* and pri#
leges appertaining lo their high
office. From New Zealand, Great
Britain, the Continent, Eastern Canada- and the United States they have
come. The return of some ot our own
graduate* to fill posts on the professorial staff is also particularly grati-
fyibg. We welcome them because of
their record a* undergraduate* while
here; because ot their ncholastlo
achievement* as post graduates elsewhere, and because of what we confidently expect they will do now that
they have returned to us."
Dr. Kllnck then adverted to registration to date.  He compared the total
  „     „ at Tuesday'* opening of MBS with the
_.,  With th* -ettoieiratiott et • theiu«* ot • y«*iem*4w««tad tint
omen's Literary Society, will strive the freshman das* If already one of
distinction in that it is the largest
ever enrolled. "Time," he »aid, "will
determine whether It is the boat."
Continuing Dr. Kllnck warned the
freshmen of the added responsibility
of university life. "Here," he said,
"you aim to do many of the things
that you did in high school and many
more as well. You are not here primarily to acquire Information or to
store your minds with facts gathered
from lectures or prescribed texts, important and valuable as those may be.
These things you will do, but as you
progress you will discover that you
are here to learn co use references, to
become acquainted with original
sources of information, to develop intellectual initiative, to work independently—In short, to develop sound
habits of study, to do independent, yet
disciplined, thinking, and above all,
scholasticaUy speaking, to cultivate
that finest and rarest of scholarly
achievements, intellectual Integrity.
But you have not reached that exalted position yet. Few, very few,
ever attain unto It, even though it is
the goal towards which every true
student aspires.*'
in referring to the relation between
faculty and students President Kllnck
spoke In terms which perhaps contained something of the sinister and
the awful when he said that the professors are more terrible by their
deeds than by their words. He assured   students,  however,   that   pro-
Handbooks Will Be
Ready on Thursday
The 1926-27 Handbook, revised and
brought up-to-date, In somewhat larger form and more pretentious appearance, Is ready for distribution
among the students this week. The
purpose of the hook which Is a genuine and very necessary aid to members of Freshmen and upper years, as
well as to executive and club members, Is to condense in handy form all
Information, as its preface states, "of
reasonable Interest to students." All
recognized societies with a short syn*
opslsl of their work, all athletic pursuits, all major social events, are
listed In this useful little book. In
addition it contains a full diary for
the academic years, several sheets of
memorandum, tlmo tables, bus schedules, directories to University buildings, and a map of the campus. No
students should be without one as a
"vade mecum;" it is, in every sense
of the word, a Student Calendar.
feasors are genuinely anxiou* to establish perfectly naturalhuman rsla-
tlonshlps, They prefer that the*e relations be direct and personal rather
than diplomatic or official
In conclusion, the President said
that next to the faculty the earnest
atudent it the most Important factor
In the University's lite. "Here as in
the world outside," he concluded,
"every man is the architect of his
own career. The University in it*
staff, its library and its physical
equipment, has brought together men
and material from a thousand sources,
but upon you, individually, rests the
responsibility for utilizing the|e in
they shall be used wits With yourselves."
Chancellor R. '£. McKochnle also
welcomed the students. In Introducing him President Kllnck paid a
warm tribute to the way in which
Chancellor McKechnie has given of
his time and his effort in behalf of
Although he admitted that it was
his ambition to be connected with
university work, Dr. McKechnie said
that for him there was nothing but
satisfaction in it. In a humorous
vein he recalled his own experiences
as freshman at McGiil forty years
ago. "In those days," remarked the
Chancellor, "every freshman was
marked for slaughter by two or three
upper classmen; but today I hear of
a Rig Slater movement which you are
organizing to protoct freshmen."
The Chancellor pointed to the Increased attendance as a sign of the
times, namely, that there 1b a growing spirit in favor of higher education.
"We want an educated people," he
emphasized, "to appreciate and dove-
lop the resources of our country."
Continuing, Dr. McKechnie referred
with pride to the enviable record of
graduates from this University and to
the outstanding scholarship of the
faculty. Speaking especially to the
freshmen he earnestly charged them
to grasp the Importance of their university courses. "Decide early," he
said, "what you are going to be, what
you are going to do. To-day you cannot hope to know everything, or to
do everything. Here there are influences bearing on you moulding your
character. And I would say to you,
Think well what you wish to become
then each day gain some useful knowledge along that line."
Ur. Kllnck then called upon the
Dean of each faculty to address the
Btudems, Dean Brock of the faculty
of Applied Science In a few remarks
welcomed the freshman, He Bald that
one thing only would make them sue*
ceHsfuI In University or In lite, that
that, thing Is work, systematic work.
Dean Clement of the faculty of Agriculture, speaking next, warned the
freshmen to "do slowly." Dean Hollert, Dean of Women, said all the
trtudents should remember what a
great opportunity Is theirs. Dean
Coleman of tho faculty of Arts and
Science, speaking along much the
same line, referred to education as a
birthright. He stated that any university is built upon a foundation laid
permanently and well by those who
lived centuries ago, whose names unsung have perished from the earth.
The ceremony, long to be remembered by many a student, closed with
the singing of God Save the King,

New Song Book Out
The Rooters' Club announces the
publication of the newly-edited song

cheerful, for the sentimental, for musicians and for those who wish merely
to make a noise." Students may purchase without confessing into whioh
class of the foregoing they fall; and
if there is a small number not desirous of even making a noisu, lot them
buy the book and receive the vicarious enjoyment of interpreting the
"noise" of others by means of the
pointed word beneath their own eyea.
Singing, according to the editor ot
the song-book, Is spontaneous; and if
there be those among ua who have
been told they cannot rival the sweet

Thus to welcome our friends old and new, we lift our feet from
ths editorial desk where summer idleness hus permitted them to
repose, and with gentle strokings of our pen we rouse tho Ubyssey
from its halcyon season to make for its wonted flight across the
current of our winter activities. While yet its wings aro stretching
and ruffling preparatory to soaring, a pleasant drowsiness, aftermath
of deep, unbroken rest, insures good humour to its voice; and while
the sleepy palm of Morpheus still lulls in rest that critical faculty
Whioh may later utter querulous complaint, we undertake our initial
duty, than which none could be more to our taste. We greet herewith, another college generation; we welcome the latest and lustiest
infant, tho class of '30,
At the present moment wc shall refrain from the recital of dull
precepts or the utterance of lengthy admonition, and this for two
reasons, of which the latter is derived from the former. Imprimis,
we had had but short acquaintance with the incoming class and so
would not presume, as do doctors, to diagnose upon a moment's
notice; secondly, as was suggested in the preceding paragraph, we
sre yet drowsing and averse to undertaking a serious probe of the
health of the new member of our academic family, or forecasting
the progress of its malady.
Let it suffice that we repeat our greeting to Arts '30, elaborating
Upon it to the extent of wishing them during their stay with us the
very best that the years can offer, assuring them, out of our experience, that muoh is to be given and much to be gained. It ia, further,
our1 belief that Arts '30 will give much and, in so doing curry on the
tradition established by former classes of which three, still within
these walls, utter the sentiments just now echoed by the Ubyssey.
Although students are to-day greeting old friends, and exchanging pleasant accounts of summer holidays or summer work, they must
notice with regret the absence of many familiar friends. Some of
those are remaining out for a year, some have left university, some are
attending other universities. This year the number of those who
have left the U. B. C. for other universities is far in excess of the
number in former years.
Just why students are leaving this university for other colleges
is not entirely apparent. Of course, we realize thnt certain courses,
such as the medical course, are not given here. Wo realize, too,
that old universities attract young students. But these fncts do
not explain why Arts students are leaving this university for McGiil
or Toronto. Perhaps, because of high fees, they have decided to
attend universities of greater repute. Perhaps too, it is a sign of the
times, this thing of students travelling to gain experience, to broaden
their viewpoint and outlook on life, We very much regret, however,
thnt they have not remained with us until graduation day,. For
they could be of more service here, in our young university, than
they can there in old universities.
It is but to be expected that, during the rush and confusion of
commencement, the work of the Ubyssey staff will be somewhat
hampered and that the flrst two issues at least, will bear marks of
the pressure under which they have been turned out. We therefore
ask the indulgence and co-operation of the student body until a
routine shall have been established to ensure a proper representation
in these columns of all student activities. To this end, we ask all
secretaries of clubs and athletic organizations to assist the staff as
much as possible in securing copy relative to meetings and future
activities, by turning in announcements to the Publications Office.

It has been considered advisable to
alter the whole policy of the Literary
Corner. Instead of printing each
week a solitary student effort it haa
been decided to devote a page every
fortnight to topics of literary Interest
submitted by member* ot the Faculty
and of the Student body. It will
easily be understood that the success
ot this will depend mostly upon the
suitability and quantity of contributions. Anything of literary value-
either poetry or prose—will be welcome.
During previous yeurs this particular branch of the "Ubyssey"—owing
primarily to the fact that the material
submitted has been comparatively
scarce—has been maintained only
with difficulty. Consequently it is
hoped that the Fuoulty and student*
will give their best support. All contribution* should be addressed to the
Literary Corner and left at the "U-

'The Old Order
Tennyson's old gag: "The old order
changetb, yielding place to new,"
applies with considerable force eveu
to this weird page. Ot the three
feature editors of last term, namely
Mr. McGoookle, Mr. Gaaton and Mr.
8auterne, two have departed from
this college life, and the other has
climbed to dlssy heights on the
journalistic tree. Tho Feature Page
ia now obliged to hang out the sign;
"Under new management."
In previous years, the lite ot a
feature editor was anything but a
rest-home. There was a staff of
about fiver—consisting of the Feature-
Edttor-ln-Chief, a couple ot feature
editors, and one or two reliable contributors,—to concoct thirty-three
hundred words ot sparkling wit twice
a week. It followed that there were
times when other activities, even
academic work, Interrupted the stream
of thought ot some members, and all
the available feature writers were
called upon at the eleventh hour to
write thousands of words to fill up
In launching this year's "Funny
Page," the present feature editor ha*
a deep compassion for all the feature
staff (including himself). This year
be wants 1,458 helpers—the total
enrolment of the U. B. 0. Overy
student, man, woman or child 1* hereby invited to send a written contribution to this page, and receive the
same lack of consideration as ia afforded to the regular staff. In addition, on the approval of the Editor-
in-Chief, ho intends to appoint one or
two regular contributors who have
shown a high standard of ability, to
the dazzling position of feature reporters (probationary or permanent)
and opportunities for further promotion.
Those students who happened to
read this page last year (may their
tribe increase!) can remember auch
features as the "Litany Coroner," "I
Seen To-Day," joke column, serials,
articles of a light nature, burlesques,
columns such as "Hint* for Lit
Bugs," "Ave Atque Vale," "Salmon
and Snuterne" and variously designated pieces by A. X. McO.
It would help the new staff considerably (and the postal authorities
immensely) If every student would
write a short letter to the Feature
Editor giving his or her opinion of
the late federal election and previous
features of this page. Such lettors
will positively not be read or even

One thing about Registering; they
do not swear you in. You do the
swearing afterwards.
After noticing the bonedust on the
campus a Freshman asked If that
was the famous "Valhalla" cemetery
site. A brutal senior remarked that
a science man had probably scratched
his head.

of "Bye, Bye, Blackbird" ha* something to crow about.
Everybody can now appreciate the

"Because he Is a wise cracksman."

INITIATION! 11 What vision* of
doom do those dread syllables conjure
up In the mind* of the poor, miserable
Frosh I ln-lt-1-a-tlonl All around theae
halls the youths and maidens of tender year* stand In trembling group*
and discuss their uncertain future.
"In-lt-1-a-tlon," whisper the Sophs, aa
they gloat over their prey. Over all
hangs the dire incubus of Initiation.
Ask any old-timer about Initiation.
He will tell you a tale that will make
your hair stand on end and freese the
marrow ot your bones. He will relate to you at length the suffering*
of victim* in the "Good Old Day*,"
when men were men and Initiation
was INITIATION. He will regale yott
with bone* and rattling skeletons-
masked figures — groan* — sigh* —
screams of agony*—victim* being led
one by one Into the Torture Chamber
to be pounced upon by their heartless tormentor* I
Further investigation will reveal
more concrete foots concerning previous Initiations. Details will come
to light of how the hapless Frosh
were seized and their forms desecrated by a too-liberal rogalia ot paint,
tar and other unmentionable mixtures;—of how they were forced to
participate in a promiscuous beauty
parade down Hastings and Granville
streets, Incidentally stopping to polish
the car-tracks and play Bull-ln-the
ring with traffic policeman;—of how
a large proportion of the city's population, particularly the younger
brother* of the victims, enjoyed the
display as much as Sells-Floto circus;
—of how the parade finished at the
C.N.R. depot where a huge bonfire
was erected and yells and songs tortured the night air. Thus were the
Frosh welcomed to the bosom of their
Alma Mater in the "Good Old Days")
Having worked the miserable minions of '30 to a Btate of panic by
the abovo paragraphs, it is well to
enlighten him still further. Radical
changes have beon made in the Initiation program In recent years.
Arts '28 had an entirely different
Initiation. Arts '29 underwent a somewhat harder coremony than their immediate predecessors, but were forced to earn recognition by the sweat
of their browt Already many students think that these two classes
have been let off too lightly, And advocate a return to the traditional
form of Initiation. Others notice
that the campus hardly conveys the
perfume of violets to the olfactory
senses, and think that a few hours of
spade-work should again fall to the
lot of the verdant ones.
Initiation this year will probably
he of the nev/ safe and sane type.
The danger is thnt tho ceremony will
become a farce, and make tho uppor
years ridiculous. The problem for
the Initiation committee Is to develop
a form ot Initiation that will please
Meanwhile the Freshmen may rest
assured that they WILL probably have
an Initiation of some sort this year,
and that it will not be an easy one.
No one can say what form the ceremony will take; whether It will be a
reversion to the traditional style, or
an improved new kind. They can only hope for the best ....

on Monday evening* from 8:80 to
10:30, and Is negotiating further with
a view to giving members at least one
hour ot practice every day from Mondays to Fridays Inclusive, It ia expected that Norman Cox, the ooach to
whom the Club owe* much ot it*
success, will take charge once more
to make the present season even more
noteworthy than last, which itself resulted in the status ot the sport being
raised from Sub-minor to Minor.
A determined effort will be made on
the part ot the executive to reduce the
fee* by $1.00 although no definite announcement can be made at present.
It is alio anticipated that, with increased membership and more hours,
special time and attention may be devoted to the instruction ot beginners.
It is to the Incoming class of freshmen that the Club looks to maintain
its record. Last year, three of the
quintette at Banff were freshmen who
also helped In tho winning of the
Lower Mainland Championship. A
big factor in last season's success was
the number turning out and thla year
the membership should, in view of
advantages recently secured, rise
from seventy-five to one hundred and

Efforts are lately being made to organise an Alumni Basketball Team,
composed of former Varsity stars,
such as Harold Henderson, the Arkley brothers, Sid Anderson, Laoey
Fisher, Bob Stephens, Don McKay and
others. It has been felt that players
trained on University teams should
be held together In such a way as this,
so that, upon graduation, they might
continue to play under the sponsorship, and with the support of, their
Alma Mater. This present team will,
If possible, be entered In the City
Senior A League, wearing the colours
grey, blue and gold.
Such an undertaking Js worthy of
support from all members past and

plans proceed beyond their present,

Candidate* for honour* on British
Columbia's Intercollegiate track and
field squad will get under way immediately according to Frank Blllott,
leading light In Varsity spiked slipper
circles. With the Western Canada Intercollegiate only three week* away
trackmen will have to make a tremendous effort to attain their beat
form before the team depart*.
Coach Jack Buchanan will be on the
track every day to coach the men and
with a large squad of intercollegiate
winners back in the fold a powerful
team can be sent east.
A meeting ha* been called for Friday noon In Science 100 when the entire situation will be surveyed and the
plans made for the coming year.
British Columbia possesses for the
first time a track of its own capable
of accomodating three lanes this fall
and when more cinders are available
the entire circuit will be completed.
When tho quarter mile surface is completely laid out wtth cinders no less
than seven men can run on the curve
and nine on the 100 yard straightaway.
Jack Buchanan has spent five
months on the tremendous task and
although hampered by lack of material and labour has turned out a remarkable piece of work. He has also
constructed forty combination low
and high hurdles that would do credit
to any ot the major Institutions. Such
hurdles cost nine dollars apiece when
purchased at an official sporting goods
■tore. Besides the track Buchanan
has constructed three fine jumping
pits and equipped them with firm runways. This combination will allow
pole vaulters, high jumpers and broad
Jumpers to work out without interfering with eaoh other. The university has also purchased one of the finest vaulting pole* that can be offered
by sporting goods stores. It has remarkable balance throughout the entire sixteen feet besides possessing
lightness and life. The track club ha*
also supplied a good javelin, shot,
hammer and discus. The jumping
standards are the official lower shaft
raising system enabling tho bar to
be raised and lowered without taking
off the bar.
Every man Is expected to report for
Intensive training Immediately as he
may win points for his class at the
interclass battle in the fl-st meet at
the end of the month.

Varsity Canadian gridiron candidates will be out In force on Friday
noon in Arts 102 to arrange turnouts
for what promises to be one of the
greatest years in the pigskin game in
the three years the sport has flourished at the college. . Backed up by the
prestige of winning the Junior Canadian Rugby championship of the
province last year the senior team is
confident that they can repeat In
faster company this year. The Big
Three team sails for Victoria on
October 14th to meet the much touted
Rep squad who, according to advance
dope, are reputed to possess a fast
driving back division and a powerful
line. Their roster includes no less
than seven former intercollegiate football veterans from McGiil, Toronto
Royal Military College, and Queens.
Tho week following they tackle another powerful aggregation when they
tangle with Vancouver Rep, who also
are reinforced hy eastern players. The
Canadian team branched out Into the
American game last year and played
with some success against Puget
