Senior A Basketers
Will Disband
Varsity's Senior A Men's Basketball
team is no more for this year. With
six straight league games under their
belt and a clear road to their seeem1
consecutive championship ihe team
has been forced to disband.
The trouble started when Don Horton. the flashy new forward nnd Illll
Kent failed to make the grade at
Christmas. Ted McEwen, the best
center in the West, was forced to
leave because of bad eyes. On top
of all this Arnold Henderson, tho best
guardsman to wear the Blue and Oold,
decided ho would have to glvo up the
game and devote his time to study.
This left only two regulars, Norm.
MucDouald and Ed. Paulson, and
Akerly, Chapman and Vandervoot as
spares. The team had a meeting and
decided It would be Impossible to continue. Permission was obtained for
the remaining men to play under the
colours of the V.A.C.

minutes. Four men und four women
will he chosen lo appear as Dualists
lu a contest early In February when it
medal will he awarded the winner,
Class Literary Representatives are
asked lo assist by having their classes
represented In the tryouts.
The fact that success ln this con
test Is altogether Independent of ability In debating, and that Ihe Judges
will weigh the speeches on their totality of merits should encourage lively
competition. Furthor advice may be
had from Frank Morley who Is lu
charge of arrangements for the contest.
Varsity Debaters
The Women's ■Building, ou Friday
night, will be the scene of the first
Intercollegiate contest Hits term, The
debate is scheduled to begin promptly
nt eight o'clock.
Tho arbiters of this word battle will
be Mr. Leonard Milne, Mr. Claude Me-
Alpine, nnd Mr. H. lt. MacMUlan.
They will decide whether the representatives of B. C. or Manitoba have
proved their side of the topic, "Resolved thut a quota system of Immigration should bo adopted hy Canada."
Varsity's standard hearer will uphold
the affirmative while Messrs. Sanderson and Richardson of Manitoba will
support the negative.
His Worship Mayor Malkln litis consented to keep the contestants separated on  tho platform.
On the same nluht in Kdmniiton Mr,
Denis Murphy- and Mr. Cnville Row-
laud will discuss Ih" negative of the
same subject with the Cniver.sliy of
Alberta. Moth Varsity's Teams have
been amassing tlgures of Immigration and emigration which prove their
side of the case. Orientals, Slavs, and
Scotchmen are destined to be used to
prove the truth or falsity of the Nordic Myth. Canada's tremendous resources In all lines of economic endeavour are sure to be paraded by both
sides and even her spiritual life will
bo laid hare.
Messrs. Bernard Tobln nnd Charles
Brazier are U. B. C.'s representatives
here, These men have both had experience in intercollegiate debates
last year. Bernard Tobln was one
member of a team that met Idaho
here last year and he won an oratorical contest during the same time.
Charles Brazier upheld U. B. C.'s honor in Missoula, Montana last year.
Both men are speakers of no little
ability who will make Manitoba's

Varsity Plays Weakened Team In Keen Encounter
In an exciting game of fast football ut Brockton Point, Saturday, Varsity
Kngllsh Ruggers, playing tholr tlrst Tlsdall Cup game, ran circles around
the Firemen lo come out on top of a 111-5 score. Seldom has a smoother-
working college tlftoen heen seen In play, when answering Bert llarratt's war
cry for action, they smothered the Iire-llghtei's' attacks, and took advantage
of every opening to add points to tl steadily Increasing total. Opon play was
the order of tlie day with both learns tackling hard.
Without discussion the Alma Mater
meeting on Friday unanimously voted
In favour of making the following
amendments to the constitution:
1. To erect upon tho lands of the
University of British Columbia any
erection, building, plant or equipment
for tho use of the Society, or of any
of its associated organizations, provided always thut the consent and approval of the requisite authorities
shall have boon flrst had and obtained.
2. To insure any such erections or
buildings with the consent of the
Board of Governors nnd tho other
requisite authorities, assign any
moneys payable to loss, make such
Joss payable to, umong others, any
Trustee or Trustees for Debenture
holders, and to Insure all or any plant,
equipment and personal property of
the University and assign any moneys
payable to loss.
These resolutions were read to the
meeting by the president, Mr. Tolmie,
and were.jpassed unanimously. Those
who hud not already done so remained
to sign the declarations of endorsement which nre being circulated
among the student body, according
to the system by which the definite
approval of the members of the Alma
Mater Society la being obtained. The
amendments will not become part of
the constitution until the requisite
number of names has been secured.
On Saturday, Varsity Junior Soccerites started the New Year by giving
the    Vancouver    Stock    Kxehani/e    an
! artistic   lesson   in   chasing   the   round
! ball to the tune of |u-i.
The rejuvenated (iold and lllue
sqtmd at last cauie into their own and
were   .superior   in   all   departments   of
| the   game.     The   re-arranged   forward
[line treated the spectators to a
dazzling display of combination and
shooting. Chalmers, supplying the
much needed finish, led the line in
superb fashion and the other men all
played ep to him and gave him perfect support. The defense was air
tight but had little work to do, their
chief trouble being how to keep warm.
The Students started with n rush
and by half time had piled up the imposing lead of six goala. On the other
hand the Exchange was easily held
In subjection.
In the second half tho Collegians
played Just as strongly, adding a further four goals. In this canto Stock
Exchange found the net from a breakaway. When the final whistle blew
the Jubilant Soccerinen cavorted to
the dressing rooms after having scored the grentest and best deserved victory in the history of U.B.C. soccer.
Spectators were pleased with the
good sportsmanship of C. Wright and
T. Chalmers who both deliberately
missed penalties given for accidental
offences. The goal scorers were as
follows: Chalmers, 5, McKellar, !),
Kngland and King, 1 each.
Chalmers wus perhaps outstanding,
his shnrpshootlng leading Vnvslty to
victory. McKellar turned lu the best
game of his sweet young life while
the other forwards combined bountifully.

a    stellar    performance,   his    white
sweater  being always  visible where .:
the play was thickest. '
For a few minutes at the start of *
the game the Firemen were danger*

ball to their opponents 16-yard Hue

pass necessitated a scrum from which \i

yards closer.   Alpen opened the scor* 'i

points with a convert from a difficult        ¥

We are going to be morul again. We suppose wo ought to
apologize, but we really can't help It. There Is a certain predilection ln the editorial mind which leads It, when It metaphorically chews its pon and muses upon Its next effusion, to a
consideration of those subjects the discussion of which is fondly
believed to elevate the moral tone, to instil dofty ideals, and In
general to bring up the much abused student body In the way it
should go.
As the result of this distinctly praiseworthy characteristic
of our own mind, we have cast a reflective eye over the various
phases of the life of the campus, and have succeeded In gathering
together a number of topics which, in the ordinary course of
events, would probably be treated separately and at length in a
series of ineffectual and insipid outpourings from the editorial
pen. In order to avoid such frank confession of the extremities
to which even the mightiest of intellects Is sometimes driven, we
decided to present these moral discussions in brief, In a series of
topic sentences, which, we sincerely hope, will be sufficient to
remind the reader of his duty upon such points. At the same
time, this cursory method will release the victim from the monotony of digesting future editorials upon well-worn subjects, and
ourselves from the unutterable boredom of composing such inanities.
Firstly, the Library staff has seen fit to Issue new regulations
regarding silence In the sanctum.   The moral is obvious.
Secondly, the Cafeteria staff is still under the necessity of
spending much valuable time In collecting the miscellaneous
remains of approximately five hundred lunches. This is an appeal for co-operation.
Thirdly, the Annual staff has begun its yearly labours. It
has become too cynical to expect even adequate support, but it
it optimistic enough to believe that its frequent notices will at
least be read, and possibly in one or two cases be carried out.
Fourthly, the Christmas Exams.—but we can't keep this up
much longer. Anyone who has followed our discussion this far
will probably feel, as we are beginning to realize, that we have
been saying the same things for time immemorial, and that we
shall probably continue to say them throughout an eternity
which is too appalling even to suggest.

better than a dream, It can bo appreciated while still In progress. Lectures and the University seem far off
aud Incredible. They belong to other
people, like accidents; or are too ultimate to worry about, like death, marriage or the April exams, Past and
future are Insignificant; the present
Is all-absorbing.
On a foggy morning it Is best to
travel by automobile. It Is true that
street-cars are safer, but, they are so
full of reminders of Everyday that
the effect of the fog Is spoilt. A
street-car, like a Scienceman, is a
monument to Its own enviromeut.
Fog Is not a mask but a revelation.
It does not weaken perception; It
strengthens it. Under ordinary circumstances every object is seen as
part of its own surroundings. It has
to light with Us background for a
share In the limelight. Now tho fog
blots out the background and the object Is conpicuous because solitary.
It takes a fog to teach the true value of car-tracks. Usually they are
accessories to the tramcar-s dally
crime of noise making, and the only
thing in their favor Is that they shine
when the lamps are alight. But now
they aro silver threads leading
through tho Labyrinth. As we cruise
along the middle of the road, they
stretch some ten feet ahead of the
car and point the way through chaos.
Our driver follows thein unswervingly and with complete trust. They are
his mariner's compass.
The fog raises the driver of the
car to an Importance never enjoyed
on clear days. Hefore, he ranked with
chauffeurs; now, he takes his place
with pilots, navigators and explorers.
He ls another Columbus sailing Into
the unknown. His followers may murmur of doubt (even n Columbus hus
back-seat drivers,) but he points not
to a floating branch, but to a name-
plate on a lamp post and the doubters are silenced.
Sunlight Is deceptive. It Is not until you drive through fog that you discover that the streets are the hunting
grounds of monsters. In sunlight,
these go about disguised as streetcars, trucks and other mechanical
hldeousnesses. Hut you have merely to
see a street-ear emerge suddenly from
tho mist, stare unbllnkingly at you
with Its single eye and plunge forward with a roar only to miss you by
a scant foot and you will know it for
what lt really is-a monster. And the
street car is not the worst. Humming
up a hill In somebody else's Whippet,
we heard a strange clanking and
coughing. Nothing could be seen, but
this noise waK all about us. Suddenly
we encountered the cause. Only tho
celerity of the driver saved us from
the clutches of a new monstrosity,
hunting prey in the very middle of
the road. It missed us hy barely an
Inch and Its disappointed ravings followed us Into obscurity. Yet, In daylight that terror pusses unnoticed In
tho guise of u steam-roller.
Near the gates of this seat of learning the fog ends abruptly, probably
the effect of the hot air, or perhaps
by arrangement with the bus company, H"re, tho pilgrim of Learning
emerges Into the prosaic realty of the
ordinary world. The fog Is forgotten
except as au excuse for being late.

Junior Hockey Loses
To Meralomas 4-1
Varsity's Junior Hockey team lost a
hard-fought game to Meralomas. 4-1,
last Friday. In spite of the score
Varsity held Its own up to the last
ten minutes of the game, when with
the score tied 1-1, Meralomas slipped
past three goals in quick succession.
Meralomas scored In the first period
due to some good combination play.
The second period was scoreless and
in tho third period Carswell equalized
for Varsity on a splendid solo effort.
At this point it appeared that Varsity
would win but Instead they suddenly
wilted nnd lost.
The game was not up to the usual
standard, it was marred by tbe unsteadiness of both teams. Over-skat-
Ing the puck, passing where there was
Ho one lo receive, and frequent fulls
were common, but, although devoid of
thrills, the game was Interesting
For Vnrsity Willis and Carswell
were outstanding. Willis had a busy
night In goal and performed his duties
like a veteran. Carswell scored Varsity's lone goal and was the most effective man on the Ice. He played practically the entire gamo without a rest,
travelling at full-speed all the time.
Thorne nnd Pike worked hard and
both hud hard luck with their shooting. Callan, playing a good game ut
defence, was a llttlo over-/,ealous and
got two penalties. The absence of
Smith and Mathews, the regular
wingers, wus a severe loss to tho
team and It Is quite possible that
with these two Varsity would have
had the necessary extra strength to
As it was, the most coiispictous
weakness of our team was lack of
practice. The boys were badly out of
condition and it was small wonder
since this wns their first appearance
on the ice since before Christmas. A
few practices, however, will bring a
great improvement: for the raw material of a real team is there.
The history of the University
hockey team up to the present has
been rather troubled. In their first
game they drew with Ex-KIng Oeorge,
a strong team. Then due to the
Christmas exams, and tho Victoria
Invasion they were forced to default
the next throe games. For this they
were threatened with expulsion from
the league and they found their practice hours at the Arena had been appropriated by other teams. And last
week, when there was no time for a
practice Varsity was ordered to play
Meralomas. So considering all things
the team has not done badly and
under their able manager and coach,
Bill Selders, the team ls certain to
retrieve the name of the University
in their next few games.
The First Soccer team has been
compelled to dissolve nnd the reasons
for its dissolution are no doubt of the
best, but lt has done some noble
things during Its existence. To begin
with, In losing a great many games,

Incredible that the team voluntarily

under the circumstances, a thoroughly

It may be that we are reluctant to
