That Henlto Mussolini and the
Fascist movement havo done incalculable good to Italy was tho basis of an
exceedingly Interesting address given
hy Signor Chieriiudo under the auspices of the Literary Society on Monday
Mr. Clilorando Is a prominent Italian
Fascist who served as an officer ln the
Italian army during tho Great War,
und was with thu Fascist! during the
post-war struggle that resulted In
Mussolini's triumphant entry into
The speaker began by graphically
sketching the deplorable conditions
of Italian governont during and after
the war. Tho soldiers at the front
wero miserably paid and fed, while
tholr families were left destitute. One
corrupt and Inefficient government
succeeded the other, including the
cablnots of such men as Orlando, Nltti
und Facta. Trade, ludustry and finance
wero disorganized and "graft" was
After the war, millions of workers
became Bolsheviks, Anarchists and
Syndicalists. Factories were seized
and thousands of disastrous strikes
occurred. Italian flags were burnt In
the streets while returned soldiers
were assaulted and stripped of their
medals. The speaker Illustrated the
situation by vivid description of his
own personal experiences.
Benito Mussolini, then a comparatively unknown man, started the
"Populo d'ltalia" and called on returned soldiers and other patriots to
save Italy. An organization of ex-corn*
batants was organized, which later
became thu "Fasclstl."
Mr. Chlerando then explained how
tho struggle between the "Reds" and
the "Black Shirts" took place. He
raised bursts of laughter from tho
audience with stories of how effectively castor oil was used on the radicals.
One result of the "castor oil policy"
was that a great revolution took place
with insignificant loss of life when
compared to such struggles as the
French and Russian revolutions.
Tho speaker then related how Mussolini, with an army of tens of
thousands of Black Shirts marched ou
Rome and was received by the King.
Since then Mussolini has put Italy on
her feet. For example a few years ago I
two and a half lire were paid lor one [
French franc, while now two and a
Half francs are paid fur one lire. The J
Italians nuw ha \ e in the place uf
disnrgnni/aiion, uiie flag, one king and
one will. (Ileal ediica' ional institutions
are now being established in Italy
and water power is being developed
to a remarkable extent, ll will take
Mussolini about five years more however to completely establish Italy as
a great Fascist state.
The question was raised as to Mussolini's curtailment of holidays In Italy.
Formerly, Mr. Chieriiudo explained,
there seemed to bo one long holiday
fn.'in tl.e llrst ot' January to the thirty-
first of December. There were over
125 feasts, religious and commemoration days to be observed by tho
stoppage of work. Now, however, Italy
will be in the same position as most
of tlie other countries of the world.
As for tho famous "black shirt", the
speaker explained that it had no necessary connection with tho Black
Hand. The "black shirts" were the
storm troops of the Dalian army during the war. Ah the "red shirt", made
famous by Garibaldi, was too conspicuous, the Italians adopted the
black shirt Instead. The returned
soldiers who formed tlie Fascist I
maintained the tradition of the black
shirt troops in their fight, against

Locals Surprise Large Crowd by Sterling Defensive
Tactics   Second Game Saturday
With somewhat of a tidal wave of popularity, Canadian Rugby "wont
over big" here on Wednesday, when an exceedingly fair representation of
the student body and faculty members turned out to see Varsity's team meet
the Regina Rough Riders. To (hose looking on, the Easterners' victory of
IT! was not a disappointment. Thu University can well be proud of thu
milliner in which (he Blue and Gold carried ou a persistent struggle from llrst
to lust.
Tho visiting team, benefitting from many years' experience In Canadian
Rugby und having the advantage of an extra twenty pounds of bono and
muscle on every player, featured a fast und furious workout, with snappy

A considerable interest is being
evidenced regarding the presentation
of four ono act plays by tho Players
Club, on tho evenings of Nov. 24, 25,
aud 26 in the auditorium. The fact
that Miss J. Battle, Mrs. F. O. C.
Wood, l'rof. Walker and Prof. F. 0. C.
Wood havo assumed tho responsibilities
of the direction of these plays is sufficient to assure a thoroughly artistic
and enjoyable bill.
The productions ure unusually attractive examples of the modern one
act plays. As announced before tho
titles are: "The Willow Pattern,"
"The Criminal," "The Dweller ln
Darkness," and "Mr. SainpBon."
The first play is an unusually pretty
fantasy with Miss Ethelwyn Doe ln

Mr. Bill Plommer will play Chang
and Mr. Bill Cameron will havo the
role of the Mandarin, Miss Dorothy
Mole nnd Mr. David McDonald also
have roles. In the Criminal, Eileen

linger are given wonderful histrionic
opportunities. The large cast In the

of many whose talents will evoke
praise from the critic^. ,jjM8. Sampson',

In the last quarter, tho play from then
to the end took ln only five yards of
university territory. This effort put
the team in position for Shields'
deadline kick for the single score. It
was seldom that Varsity wns uble to
make any progress head on, although,
Odium, Jackson and Currle made
some nice bucks. Most of the advances were made by end run passes
followed by long kicks.
However, Varsity's backfleld, by no
menus inferior to that of the Rough
Riders, was well protected by the
line when it came to kicking. Helmer
and Shields were able to get the ball
well up Into the air before anyone
got through to block the kick.
Varsity began the gamo by kicking
off uphill from centre. The team
seemed a bit nervous at first. Regina

Dr. Ernest Thomas
Addresses S.C.M.
Tin- X (!. M. wore very fortunate lu
having Dr, Ernest Thomas of Toronto,
speak to thorn last week. A series of
throe lectures was hold In Ag. 100,
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,
on Christianity In Politics, Philosophy
and Religion.
On Tuesday, Dr. Thomas discussed
the origin of European Nations and the
political crises of oi-r era, the Re*
lornitttlon, the French Revolution, the
Industrial Revolution and the Rise of
the God State. He showed how th6
wars of the 18th Century were due
to nationalism rampant, and how today In China, European Nations are
Paying for their own sins of national*
Ism. "The way out," he said, "la
to transcend nationalism. First the
nation must develop a disposition to
transcend It then make some experiment, and thus acquire a techiliqUe."
He believes that religion must make
a beginning by overcoming religious
differences. On Wednesday, Dr,
Thomas showed very cleverly the difference between Faith, Creed and
Theology. He stated that there Is no
conflict between Faith and Philosophy
or Science, although there Is conflict
between the supposed Implications of
In his Thursday lecture he treated
with some of these supposed Implications. He quoted at length from
"Rough Justice" a novel by Montague,
In which he found the highest expression of religion. "Religion," he said,
"is not concerned with morality, but
with values and ends," The God of
the Hebrew and Puritan was the
power they found In moral conflict,
moral conduct and conscience.
"The function of religion to-day,"
he went on, "is to designate a reality
and present lt to ourselves, and so
keep the feel of the great moment."
He left us with the thought of "the
ultimate reality," and "the brooding
presence of the whole."
This week, Dr. Thomas is tpeaklng
every noon except Tuesday, In the
S. C. M. Room. Auditorium 312. The
meeting will take the form of discussions and e'-eryoni' interested is Invited to attend.

With the posting of tho exumiuntion time-tablo, there hag been
an immediate rush to the library. Students, anxious to make up
tot loBt time and to turn the few remaining weeks at least to good
account are lining up at the reserve und circulation desks and crowding the reading rooms. A few remarks on this or a word of advice
Would riot be amiss this time of year.
In the flrst place there is the use of books, particularly reserve
books. Anyone who tried in vain to get books from either end of
the desk will riot be long in realizing that this inconvenience is most
frequently caused by the carelessness of another student. In order
thdt every one may have fl due share of time on reserve books, it is
essential that they be returned promptly. A little consideration for
your fellow students will go a long way to alleviate the harassing
rush At the desk.
Then thGre is the matter of talking in the reading room, one to
which we have had to refer already this term. The conduct of
certain students has been discourteous to say the least. Often it is
practically impossible to study owing to conversations across the
table. The only hope of those long suffering students who really
desire to Use the reading room for the purpose for which it was
intended, is that the loquacious individuals will suffer for their lack
of courtesy in the coming trials—and they undoubtedly will. During
the next three weeks we hope that every one will be so cowed by the
thought of examination that the library will really bo the ideal place
to study.
Finally, a word about reserving chairs. The situation in the
Library is not yet as bad as in the Cafeteria. But wa recollect that
as the Library becomes very crowded near tho end of the term
students have a selfish habit of reserving chairs for one or often two
hours while they attend lectures.
The moral of this is—no matter how eager your desire to le,ir;i
(cramming describes it better) remember to keep it within the bounds
of consideration for your fellow student.
An effort is being made this year tn make the work on the
"Totem," the University Annual, as easy ns possible for the harassed editorial staff. In former years the editor nnd assistants have
been greatly inconvenienced by the late arrival of write-ups and
photographs, and the work has sometimes been seriously delayed by
people who persistently neglect to hand in their contributions. A
special plea for co-operation is made this year to all the graduates
and to those who represent the student activities. The success of the
"Totem" depends largely upon Ihe support which the staff receives
from the students, and it is only hy the active assistance of those
particularly interested in the Annual that the lii^'li standard established by the previous volumes can be maintained.
In the second place, if the graduates who are responsible, for
the write-ups would remember that they are writing about ordinary
human beings and not about paragons of all the virtues, our Annual
would no doubt be freed from the mawkish sentimentality which has
so far afflicted it. The main object of the write-ups is to outline in
ft general way the part which each graduate has played in University
activities. By keeping this aim in view, the write-ups will perhaps
be more indicative of eaoh graduate's achievements than they have
formerly been.
We plea for co-operation, therefore, in our attempt to make this
year's "Totem" the most successful the University has yet produced.
The recent P.I.P.A. convention was
held at the University of British Columbia, which, scarcely ten years old,
haB grown to an Institution with an enrolment of some sixteen hundred students. Occupying a remarkably strategic position In Western Canada, the
I'niverslty Is bound lo rise to a position of unique power and Influence.
However, compel It Ion In such HiIiiks
as popular athletics with the American

Editor of the Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
During the past week I was tempted,
In Ihe search for Information, to make
ubi> of your exchange bureau of university publications. I soon found on
Instigating a search that this department was in such a state of disorganization that any Intelligent use of
the papers was Impossible. Not knowing the handicaps under which your
P. I. P. A. editor Is working I am
making no attempt at censure. I shall,
however, go so far as to suggest thai
the publications from our Western
Canadian Universities and some of Ihe
Universities of the United Slates be
kept on hie In Ihe I.horary and Scientific Department's room where Ihey
would be available for the students.
While I am claiming space In your
columns I think It wise to mention another problem which Is perplexing the
student mind—this Is the prevailing
habit of conversing lu the library-
There are few of us, I presume, who
have not succumbed to the temptation
so that It becomes no one to point the
finger of scorn. The situation, It
seems, has now become Intolerable so
that any suggested remedy must be
both drastic and nondiscriminatory
in character. I wodld therefore suggest that conversation of any kind
between students should henceforth
be prohibited In the library and that,
If necessary, some measure of surveillance be undertaken until the rule
has become established. While this
tnlght be a hardship for many It appears the only solution to the problem.
Yours very truly,
Ab Whlteley,
Arts '28.
ISdltor of the "Ubyssey,"
University of British Columbia.
Dear Madam:
Is there any reason why the disgraceful conduct In connection with
the distribution of the "Ubyssey"
need continue? This did not happen
two years ago, and was not nearly as
bad last year, Is there any excuse for
It this year? Would lt be possible to
have a few more copies printed so
that everyone could have a copy, or,
If there aro sufficient printed Is there
no way to limit the number taken by
one person. The "scramble'' which
has hitherto taken place In the
Women's Common Room was bad
enough, but when It degenerates still
farther lo a fight In the corridor It is
surely time to take some drastic
measures Had this occurred In the
Homecoming Weekend It would surely have heen mistaken by the graduates as an Arts-Science fight. Hoping
that something will be done Immediately to rectify this condition.
An Indignant Junior.
Editor's Note:—We would like to
assure our correspondent, that we
have a sufficient number ef "Ubys-
soys" printed for the whole student
body. If some .studentH go without
their copies it means that others are
taking more than their share. Over
this condition we have no control iiiul
ran only regret that the unfairness of
Home students causes Inconvenience
to others.

Dear Madam:
On Wednesday afternoon al three
o'clock there was held the opening
ceremony for the Anglican College

service council members, and those
using the L. S. 1). room were talking,
laughing, and creating a disturbance,
clattering up and down stairs, and
considerably annoying those in the
Nor were they the only ones. Apparently there was also considerable
noise in the lower hall which caused
remarks from prominent men alnd

Yours for a little consideration.

Kilitof,   "Ubyssey."
Dear  Madam:
As this University Is an Institution
of learning, it might lie expected that
the MtudenlH should use fairly correct
grammar In their sp -h.    Tills Is far
from Hie case. Kvery day on the
campus the fundamental rules of
grammar arc violated In a most merciless manner. Tlie following Is a collection of mistakes that I gathered In
one day.
1. English honor student: "Can I
go anil get that hook?"
2. Second ditto, "lie don't know
what he's talking about,"
:i.    Senior, He ming beautiful."
•I.    "Oct In thnt bus quick,"
Yours very truly,
Editor, The "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
Save for a casual mention In an
issue of your paper practically no attention has been bald to the possibility of forming an Officer's Training
Corps at this University. The benefit*)
we would receive from the Corps are
many and so obvious that lt Is dlfll-
cult to understand why we should
be the only University in Canada
without one.
By means ot an O.T.C. we easily
provide students with means of obtaining proper Instruction In athletics
and physical development at no cost
to themselves or ln any way Interfering with their other activities. In
u recent Issue mention has been made,
through the correspondence column,
of the desirability of an Institution
which would provide these facilities.
As a means of revenue for our proposed gymnasium, the possibility of
the governments rental ot the same
will be no small Item In Its upkeep.
In the past, a good deal of criticism
hus heen given to un O.T.C. on the
grounds that It Is essentially militaristic Th ough there may be reasons
for such an argument they are weakened If one considers every other
phase of a University Training. Tbe
debatable question of compulsory enrollment, (to secure attendance) is
usually unnecessary if credits are
given for this course as is the ease
at Toronto and other Eastern Universities.
in conclusion) might I say that a
movement towards the formation ot
the corps would not go unsupported
but would receive aid front those who
at present go elsewhere for their indoor athletic activities. It is to everyone's benefit it Immediate steps are
taken In this movement.
Yours sincerely,
W. thorn ber,
Sc. '30.
Editor's Note:—The O.T.C. has
been voted down by the students at
least twice before. It is up to those
who are interested ln It to start the
O.T.C. If they can get support. The
Ubyssey does not feel that in supporting an O.T.C. lt would be giving expression to general student opinion.

Fellow Students:
Greetings!    We members of a passed generation of U. D. C. students
became stricken with nostalgia (word
used In tho effete East to mean homesickness) as Home-coming week drew
near, and, being unable to attend the
re-unlon,  consoled  ourselves  with  a
banquet.   Gustatory pleasures appeared to be the nest  best thing to a
ticket to Vancouver—and It Is something to feel we are one by doing the
same  thing at the same  time.    We
send our best wishes for success to
our Alma Mater  (may  her tribe Increase) together with an account of
our own efforts (o do her honor.

Tho following Is an extract from the

U. H .C. students held there In connection with Homecoming Week.
Past 8tudant* to Celebrate at

To-night   the   University  of  British

Queen's Hotel, at 7.15.   This banquet
Is being held simultaneously with the
Home-coming Banquet at the University of British Columbia, and with one
being held at Toronto.
Sir Arthur Currle who has an LL.D.
degree from the University of British
Columbia, has been asked to extend
his patronage to the function. Other

Jots and Comments
The latest regulation as to parliamentary procedure Beems be the
setting of lime limit for speeches
given Ih the Canadian House ot Commons. Sometimes forty minutes is
a long time to listen but nevertheless
one must consider those speakers
who take at least an hour to get
started. Such people might be faced
with a very unpleasant duty, namely
the necessity ot analysing and condemning their speeches and picking
out the Important points. That is
just where the catch lies. Just
Imagine the consternation of many an
M.P., whose voice has been heard
often In thu council chambers of the
Nation, being forced to realise that
such points can not bo found.

The W.C.T.U. has been venting its
venom on the Introduction of military
training in educational institutions.
That does sound funny coming from
a militant order like the W.C.T.U.
They claim that such training breeds
militarism. Sorry to contradict but
It does not. It is a sign of the exi-
stence of militarism together with
such signs as the parading of most
loyal, independent, worshipful, exalted
and other orders through the streets
of any respectable city on this continent to the satisfaction of paraders
and umusemerjt of onlookers. Cadets
very seldom march through the city
and If they do they have modest uniforms and above all keep In step and
what Is moro Important they are only
boys. In the other Instance we have
our elders and more respectable
citizens setting a good example to the
younger generation by wearing
costumes that Bamuui and Bailey
must covet and in general displaying
as much military accomplishment as
common sense. Still everybody would
object to them being restrained-
people do like a good laugh. We do
wonder, however, whether an Institution like the W.C.T.U. breeds a spirit
of meddlosomeuess ln other people's
affairs or is also just a sign of the
existence of lt.

from earliest times, down to the present world famous schools. The object
is to keep them on the furms, teaching
them how to be successful with and
to love their farm life. The movement it was emphasized, has been

the ball stayed at the Regina end until it returned to centre about quarter-
After several exchanges ot kicks
Regina came down the field nnd
Sandstrom, their quarter, went over
for the first touch. Tho convert
Soon after, Shields rescued a ball
kicked over Varsity's lino but Regina
repeated their stunt and scored another rouge before the quarter was up.
Early in tho second half Currle made
a five yard buck but Regina replied
by making their yardage twice und
scoring a safety touch. The score
wus now 8-0. Odium and Jackson
started hitting the lino for occasional
five yards gains but no effort could
stop the fierce Regina onset and
Grassick soon raised their score to
thirteen with another touchdown
about six Inches over tho line. From
now on Varsity took the offensive.
Whon on the Regina thirty yard line,
Shields tried for a deadline, sending
a beauty Into the air to gain the
single count for the university.
