Frightened Freshmen Seek
To Avoid Dread Ceremony
Terror-stricken members of '29 plan to increase In stature
and brawn.   Excitement at height when
meditative senior appears
A tew days ago the wild, wooded
district behind the Library was the
atone of a large assemblage of terror-
stricken individuals. At first glance
t site night suspect that a kindergarten
bid broken loose, or that one had
Stumbled upon a bevy of refugees, enjoying the beneficial air of the British
Columbian forests.    Truly, this last
Seemed most plausible, for the faces
f the children were white and strain-
ad, and a look ot horror and apprehension was visible in each frensled
aye. Some clung to eaeh other in undisguised despair, whilst others stood
Stoically fighting back their tears. The
Sight was pitiful.
Finally a small boy, composed for
the most part of spectacles and balloon pants, stepped to the front.
"Fellow Freshmen," he exclaimed
In a voice that was weak but reso-
lite, "Initiation draws nigh. What's
to be done?"
Ah, what WAS to be done? Many
ware the suggestions which the weep-
teg students submitted to their leader,
but one by one each was rejected.
The plan to destroy all Initiation apparatus was denounced as impractical. There was another, to gather all
the Freshmen together in one large
room, which was to be well stocked
with crackers and milk In case of
Sieges. This also was put aside, as
BO room ot sufficient sise could be
found which also possessed a strong
enough bolt to stand between them
.and the muscle and fury of the Seniors. As time passed, and no satisfactory solution was heard, the despair
became more audible, and one of the
little girls tainted away.
At this climax the small spectacled
boy was fired with one of those magnificent inspirations which only arise
In moments or extremity. Delicately
raising the edges of his enormous
trouser-legs from the dusty ground,
he took several steps towards his
trembling audience.
"There is but one thing to do," he
cried, "and it is this! From now until the day of initiation our diets must
consist of that which will Inorease
our stature and brawn. Let each
Freshman quote to himself every evening, 'Have I had my Iron?' Let me
recommend Little Sun-maids. And
upon the Day"—everyone shuddered—
"you will come armed with your rattles, or any other instrument that can
be used in warfare. I will secure one
of the noble horses that drily parade
the campus grounds, and ride before
you in the fray. Together we shall
vanquish the accursed Seniors. Courage, my friends; the hour of deliverance Is at hand! Down with authority! Down with tyranny! Down
with "
He stopped. Ye gods, what had
blanched the ardent glow of his young
cheeks? Fascinated, the Freshmen
followed the paralysed gase of their
leader. Wild shrieks rent the air, and
ot one accord they fled.
The Senior who had passed by
paused and raised his head In astonishment at the shrill discord which
had disturbed his profound meditations. Musing, he watohed the last
figure stagger off. Then, left alone,
he sighed, smiled gently, and removing the pipe from his eloquent lips:
"O tempora, O mores!" he Bald as he
turned away.
Insanity Plea
Successful In
Criminal Trial
Once more has the Insanity Plea
aucceeded. Mr. Arthur Madeley. released from a charge of gambling
Stepped from the dock of the Joint
Literary Societies' Court with what
little character he had left, redeemed.
An almost unanimous verdict of "Not
Guilty," concluded the most sensational case since the monkey trial.
The courtroom was crowded, Aged
Seniors vied with candy-sucking
Freshman for a glimpse of the notorious defendant standing defiantly In
the prisoner's dock. Sensational revelations were there in plenty, surprise
on surprise and hilarity on hilarity.
The eager spectators with strained
eyes and mouths agape, waited in bus-
Snse as the intense drama of human
tercet unfolded before them.
The case opened for the prosecution. Misses Tolmie and Smith, the
prosecuting attorneys, painted a vivid
picture of the unfortunate defendant's
character and depraved taste In dress.
After a rigorous description ot the
baneful influence ot the accused's
habits on the Freshman class, they
threw him a small crumb of comfort
by declaring that he was sane enough
to stand trial. Mr. John W. Bridge
was called to prove, that on Friday
the twenty-fifth, he hatl been asked
\tf the defendant to play the game
aynonlmous with his own name, contrary to the by-law of 8, Coutes, 1920.
This had led to defendants arrest tut
president ot the Bridge Club.
The evidence seemed conclusive until Mr. Kobe and Mr. Mulherne took
the floor for the defence. Mr. Kobe
opened his case by launching the tru
Ism that the trial was a farce. He
then called on special witness to
prove that Mr, Ilrldge was Insane.
Mr,   0.   II.   I.lmpua,   the   celebrated
Kyehologlst    from    Hamburger    anil
mburger,  put  the  wltnesti  for  the
prosecution   through   an   Intelligence
test   with   dire   results.    Answers   to
questions such as, "svhm  would  Imp-
pen   If   Gloria   Swansnn    was   Santa j
CUauh?"    "What  Is oneamloneandone-j
andone',''    And. "Imagine you are In;
an arena with a wall thirty feet high,
and four hulls coming at you:" show-!
conclusively   that   Mr.   Bridge   had   a
mental   age   of   seven   ami   one-half
years. Moreover, he was found to
be a sufferer from psychological neurasthenic scelerosis and congenital
Jealousy!
Mr. McGoogle, called for the defence, stated that Bridge, Madeley
and himself had tried out tor the
chorus at the Royal Theatre on the
previous Thursday. Impressed with
the grace and beauty of the latter two,
the management welcomed those
charmers with open arms, while their
less-gifted companion was rejected.
Thereupon, Bridge developed signs of
Jealous frenzy.
The next day, witness continued,
Bridge offered to play Madeley the
curd game, and threatened violence.
I'pon the advice of witness, the defendant eoiuplled with the request In
self-defense and was taken Into run-
tody as a result.
Another witness of Arts '29 related
the sad experience of a Freshman In
searching for a room In which to
study, and Identified Madeley as ono
of the card players in room 102, but
could not, on account of his horror,
remember the other "gentleman" concerned,
In summing up, the wise and
solemn Judge Marsh, said that most
of the evidence was unnecessary, the
point for the Jury to decide being
whether the defendant was Justified
in playing cards to prevent Bridge
from committing murder, suicide or
something equally unpleasant.
Tho Jury, after a comprehensive
look at Mr. Bridge, promptly returned
Its verdict.
The members of the Women's Literary Society remained after the trial,
and a meeting wis held.

A meeting of aspirants to the Players' Club was held at noon, Wednesday, In room 100, of the Arts Building. The meeting was presided over
by Professor F. G. C. Wood.
Graduates and others leaving at the

six vacancies In the club, and there
are 140 applicants to till these places.
Professor Wood explained that
ninety women were tryng for sixteen
vacancies, so that one in six has a
chance of success. As usual, however, there is a better chance among
the men, the chances being about one
In three.
He pointed out that the applicants

NEW SCHOLARSHIP
GIVENBY I.O.D.E.
The Imperial Order Daughters of
the Empire has planned a War Memorial In order to perpetuate the memory of those men and women who sacrificed their llveB in defence of the
Empire In the Great War. Two of the
leading features of this Memorial are
Bursaries in Canadian Universities,
and Overseas Post-Graduate Scholarships.
Nine ^ost-graduate scholarships—*
one in each province of the Dominion
—will be offered annually after 1926,
to enable students to carry on studies
at any university of the United Kingdom, In British and Imperial History,
the Economics and Government of the
Empire nnd Dominion, or any subject
vital to the interest of the Empire.
A Committee of Selection has been
appointed In each province, and In
choosing the scholars the Committee
will consider nol only literary and academic attainments, hut also personal
character and physical fitness. They
will also ascertain whether the record,
alms, and Ideals of the candidate
chosen as scholar are consistent with
the aims and Ideals of the Order, and
whether he or she Intends to live In

Ideal Equipment
Obtained for
Uhnty
Stacks for Senior Homers and
Graduates only
The Library, most wonderful and
beautiful of all our new University
buildings, is the one, above all others,
which satisfies our fondest hopes and
wildest dreams, Even though It Is not
yet quite ready for the students, nevertheless one can easily see that when
fully completed it will easily provide
room for even the largest crowd that
will ever need to make use of it.
One convenient feature of the new
Library Is the assignment of the two
wings of the building to the upper
years. The wing on the left hand
side Is Intended for fourth year and
graduate students only, while the
room on the right is solely for third
year students. These rooms each
contain four long tables capable of
seating fourteen at a table. Provision will also be made for two shorter
tables to be placed up near the windows. This will mean that eaoh room
is to hold apioxlraately seventy students with comfort. As a result of
this there will be no crowding, In tha
upper years at least.
The main part of the Library, where
the Librarian's desk is situated, will
be allotted to the first and second
years. Room will be left in front of
the desk Itself, but tables will be
placed on the sides, and one in tha
alcove In front. This Is expected to
provide very easily for the demands
of the lower years
The real Interior, In the stack-room,
and In the rear of the building, is a
veritable maze of rooms. Going down
on the elevator—for the Library pos-
setae-) such a luxury—one pauses Ave
floors stacked solidly with books. The
stack-room itself is a sanctuary, a
holy of holies, open only to fourth
year honor students and graduates
working for their M.A. The magazine room alone Is very nearly, as
large as the old Library at Falrview.
As a result, unless there Is a most
alarming increase In the registration,
the Library will be safe from overcrowding for a good long while.

Canadian Ruggers
Plan Campaign
With throe liiter-eollcglate games
bunked in addition to tho regular
srliedule in tho senior, intermediate.
and junior Nories for tho provincial
rliuinpioiisliliiH, the Canadian Rugby
Club, finds itself in the same boat with
the other tennis that will represent
I'. H. C. this your; to wit, a wealth of
fine material lined up for a first-class
squad but no facilities for training.
Spurred on by their capture of the
B. C. senior championship last year, the
Canadian Rugby enthusiasts got busy
and dated three rival college team*
for grid contests, knowing that with a
student body of 700 men, U. B. 0.,
given the proper opportunities, could
hold it« own. College of Puget Sound,
Tacoma, was booked for October 10th,
University of Washington for October
31st, and University of Alberta for
November 21st. In each case the visiting team has agreed to give a return
game noxt fall.
In this way the Club expects to play
a slx-gamo intercollegiate schedule
every year, as It will not be difficult
to secure three home games next season. .Sufficient material is also in

THE HANDBOOK
For a number of years it has been
the policy of the Publications Board
to Issue at this time a Students' Handbook. This yoar tho Handbook will be
ready for the first year on Saturday,
and for the rest of the students at the
first of next week.
The Idea back of the publication of
this book Is to make available to the
students, especially the Freshmen, a
brief but complete summary of the
rules and regulations by which the
University Is governed. As this is the
only source from which such information can be obtained, each member of
Arts '29 is requested to obtain a copy,
•nomlwri-eoat of tea uwnts.
This year we have also printed information valuable to the older members of the A. M. S., relative to the
new surroundings; this, of course, was
not In last year's Handbook. Thus
we strongly advise the senior
classes to obtain copies. This should
be done as soon as possible after publication, only a limited number being
available.
Students will find listed in this bonk
such odd and Useful bits of information as a directory of Vancouver
churohes, a map of the University
buildings and grounds, aud a timetable of the B. C. Electric-University
busses.
GOWNS I
Perhaps it is unwise, especially at
the beginning of the term, to bring
up again the vexed question ot "the
wearing of the gown." In view of the
fact, however, that our columns have
been singularly free of all disputes
on the subject for the past year or
so, we feel that the air has cleared
somewhat, and that we may have our
editorial say without any grave misgivings sb to the issue.
The executive of the senior year
has decided to make the wearing of
gowns compulsory, but whether or
not the other classes In Arts will do
likewise remains to be determined.
While still Inhabiting the Fairvlew
huts, many criticized the gown as
absurd and out-of-keeping with the
decidedly non-acadomlc environment,
but now that the "marble halls'' o'
which we dreamed ere a reality, although perhaps not such a glorious
and comfortable reality as we hail
Imagined, It Is fitting that we should
seriously assume the air and deportment of university students. And
everyone will admit that nothing is
more conducive to academic dignity
than a gown, provided It is well made.
In this connection, It is our opinion
that recently we have been Influenced
too much by economy when ordering
gowns, and have overlooked, for the
sake of saving a few dollars, the un-
sightliness and nondescript character
of our academic dress. -No one can
truthfully call the University of British Columbia gown distinctive; and it
would be well, now that we are entering on a new epoch ot our college
history, to consider a definite academic costume worthy of our institution
and one of which we need never be
ashamed.

STATUES
Where I had been that night, or
what the circumstances were which
led up to the event, I cannot say. It
Is only of the happening Itself, aud
of the effect it had upon me, that I
have any clear remembrance.
It occurred when I was returning
from one of my evening walks (during my stay in Paris, I had developed
tho habit of Indulging In nocturnal
rambles). My way lay through that
district which the guide books advertise as the Latin Quarter. As I
passed the Pantheon I paused to look
at Rodin's statue, "The Thinker."
In those days It used to stand on the
steps of the building overlooking the
boulevard.
In the square, which was usually
still and seemed quite deserted, the
gas lnmpB glimmered faintly; above
me loomed the sombre dome of the
Pantheon—darkly silhouetted against
the starry sky. It was autumn, and
the wind, faint though it was, brought
with it little showers of drled-up
leaves. The magnificent naked body,'
with its massive shoulders thrust forward, Its mighty arms, Its perfect
symmetry—a body which might well
have belonged to some Pagan god-
lay in the shadow; while the small,
undeveloped head resting on the
hand was clearly Illuminated by the
ra^S from a street lamp, The light
showed up vividly the wrinkled brow,
the primitive face with Its contorted
features and puzzled, hopeless expression.
For some moments' I gased at it
half lost In reverie. Then, happening
to glance towards tho baseJjjJL-tho
nfntupt, I fftun4-TTTr^rTnh"JoTthniigh*
abruptly broken. The shadows stired; 1 heard c little "clicking" sound,
followed by an Incoherent mumbling.
My eyes must have become accustomed to the darkness at the base, for
the shadow gradually resolved itself
Into a shape—that of a human being.
It was bent very low, quite close to
the steps, and, save for an almost
Imperceptible nodding of the head,
remained motlonlese. That it was
conscious of my presence I was certain, for, since, as I have said, the
square was deserted, my approach
must have been heard half the length
of a street away.
Not knowing what to do, half fearful of speaking, yet held to the spot
by a very natural curiosity, I made
no movement to go away, and continued gazing downward. For some
time the figure remained at the foot
of the statue, then, very slowly, it
rose, and turned in my direction. And
I saw that it was a woman. She must
have been very old, for she was bent
practically double, and her movements
wore slow and faltering. She was
dressed poorly and wore thrown over
her head and shoulders a dark, woollen shawl, from beneath which hung
down a few wisps of grey hair. Apparently she was fingering some
beads, for, as she walked, she fumbled
In her garments, and I heard repeated
the little "click, click" as of tiny Ivory
balls. Only when she drew abreast
of the street lamp, when the light fell
full on her pallid, withered face, did
I realize that she was quite blind.
T!|o event, though trifling enough,
sufficiently aroused my Interest for
me to make inquiries. One fact 1
managed to gleu.i wbrlch may throw
some light upon It. That was, that,
many years hefore tho Installation of
Rodin's statuo there used to stand,
not fur from the self-same spot, a
wooden figure of the Madonna.

Children of Ubeessee
Reach Promised Land
Exodut—Chapter After Latt
BY P. 1. P.
A great event should be written In
classical language. This Is how posterity should learn about the past
week:
Tne Chronicle of Soph.
1. And it came to pass that the
wandering tribes of the Children of
Ubecsee at last reached the Promised
Land. And great was the joy thereof
and all gave praise even thus: "Rah,
rah, rah."
2. And the Children of Arts sat
themselves down on the lloor of the
Tabernacle, called the Auditorium, ajwff
likewise the Hclcnceltca ami evea'tlie
Aggls. And behold, there came many
great leaders and prophets before them
aud gave praise unto the Faculty, the
Founders aud the Student Hotly. And
It was truth, ror the students knew
that there never was a Student tlody
like unto themselves. Ami all knew
then what It meant to have a Chair
on the Faculty and hoped that some
mighty benefactor would Install some
more.
3. And behold, on the first day and
on the second day came a great famine over all the land, because the Cafe-
terla could not provide any manna for
the Children of Ubeesee. And there
was weeping and walling and gnashing of teeth. And those who could
gnash their teeth on Wrlgley's were
envied by their brethren.
4. The third day dawned and lo,
there appeared on the grassy campus
a sight marvellous to behold! A new
atmosphere was discerned, yea, a university atmosphere without rival In
the world! And the starving Children
of Ubeeaeo raised up their voices on
high and shouted, tor behold, there
was a Stand where lay revealed an
abundance of Coin Pop and likewise
Hot Pups. And so the Children of
Ubeesee were saved I
6. And meanwhile the Artltes, tho
Sclenceltes and even the Aggls, discovered that they were born to labour
and woe, yea, verily, very much so!
And the voice of the Professor was
heard In the land.
6. This Is the Chronicle or Soph,
and may ho live to see the Cafeteria
opened.

voting for for your class president?"
Twenty-nine: "Oh, sir, I'm only
seventeen, I can't vote."
1:    Have you made up your mind
to go to the dogs?
2:    Dogs?    Dogs?    No, I didn't get

Poet: "What do you think of my
last poem?"
Mr. Marsh: "Well, I? Is a ureal
pleasure to hear thai It Is your last."
"TnlkhiK nf iv-ononiy," remarked the
soph. In the corner seat of the Point
Grey bus, "1 know a chap who hasn't
spent a dime In five yearn." "Nonsense," said the Inhabitant of the op
poslte corner. "It's a fact." said the
first man," but he'll be out next week."
SOURCE OF WEIRD
SOUNDS FOUND
IN LIBRARY
Visitors to the Library have been
mystified by an incessant humming
which can be heard echoing through
the halls and corridors. At times the
sound Is a quiet droning, and at times
it reaches the pitch of a falsetto walling. Sometimes the noise stops altogether, though only for ap Instant.
Consequently "The Ubysaefy" haB carried on a most rlgriKrus investigation
and has succeeded, though not without great dJJIhfulty, in tracing the eerie
dlHturbjMrfo to its source. A carerul
scajisti failed to reveal an aerodrome
fitf'vwn a hornet's nest or a bee-hive
In the reading room. It was noticed,
howevnr, that students, rreshmeii
judging from their childish l re hies and
pathetic niehi, were scurrying to nnd
fro In Ihe basement, A crowd of them
were endeavouring to force their way
Into the washroom, and a few with
that l-came-l-saw-l-conquered air, were
struggling nut. Suspecting that a desire lor cleanliness was not the only
motive of the gathering, we entered
the washroom. Here, clustered about
the two electric hot-air drying machines, was a group ol' excited freshmen.
The noise was terrific. No longer was
It a drone. It was a roar punctuated
with shrill shrieks of delight. Hands
were being washed and re-washed and
aa often dried and re-dried at the machines. Perhaps when all the freshmen have dryed themselves in that
unique fashion, the sophomores can
have their turn.
A Little Study
In Psychology
Freshman views University life.
Freshman razes In awe at Senior.
Senior affects air of superiority,
smokes long stemmed pipe, and enjoys his position. Freshman wonders
If he will ever be able to smoke long-
stemmed pipe and look superior.
Freshman stares in wonder at Junior. Junior pretends to be studious,
feigns Importance, and affects mild
paternal interest in Freshman. Freshman hopes, some day, to have equal
Importance, appear studious, and
mildly show paternal Interest In inferiors.
Freshman looks Sophomore over.
Sophomore, wearing Kollege Kuts,
puts on air of disdain, smokes cheap
cigarettes amateurishly, and tries to
humble spirit of Freshman. Fresh-
rran resolves never to be a Sophomore.

Little Bits From
Here And There
There has betn a lot of talk recently about freshmen needing to do
a lot of work If they are going to stay
here, etc. Well, let It be stated
right here and now that that Is all
piffle. There Is no cause for worry,
because as Confucius or College Humor or Tommy Wilkinson, or somebody else has so truly said: "Your
course Is either soft or difficult. It
it is soft, you don't need to worry,
and ir It Isn't, either you can work
the prof, or you can't. If you can,
there's no nee J to worry, and if
you can't (hen you either study or
you don't. If you study, well, no
need to worry, and If you don't either
you can get out of the exam, or you
can't, ir you can, good,—If you can't,
either you pass, or you fall. If you
puss, all's well,—If you fall either
you're conditioned or you're thrown
out. ir you're conditioned there's no
need lo worry, and ir you're thrown
out, there's nothing left to worry
about,   Therefore, why worry?"
EXCHANGE
It Is rather unfortunate that some
religious fanatics have taken It Into
their heada to cover the flat surfaces
of the boulders along the roadside on
the way out to the University with
large and glaring inscriptions of Bible
texts. It is to be hoped that whatever authorities there may be will see
to It that these are removed or obliterated. Of course we do not object to
the textB In themselves, but everything should have Its proper place.
Besides, these quotations, lifted out of
their setting and placed upon a wayside boulder, appear Billy and futile.
And that Is not the way a Bible text
should appear.
Your religious fanatic will say, no
doubt, that he has as much right to
advertise his religion by posters as
has the merchant his wares. True
enough. Hut we hope that those same
authorities who see to It that the
Bible texts are obliterated will likewise see to It thai no advertising
posters of any kind are placed along
the highway from Blanca Street to
the University site. It would be re
grettable Indeed If thot glorious view
of the mountains was to be obstructed
by signs advertising Dr. So-and-So's
bread, with some signs farther on
advertising as an antidote probably,
some cure or other which "Stops
Stomach Misery."- Point Grey Gazette.
Tuttday, Stpttmbtr 20 Is the anniversary of an Important event in
History, the origin or the British coat
of arms. It appears that on this date
In 1601, Queen Elisabeth was out
walking and came to a particularly
muddy ditch. One of iher courtiers,
Sir Walter Raleigh, took off his coat
and gallantly spread It out for the
Queen to walk over. On reaching
the other side of the ditch the Queen
turned to Sir Walter and said "Honl
solt pul mal y pense." (Which, being
translated means, "Pardon me, but
I am afraid I've dirtied your cloak.")
Sir Walter gazed ruefully at the garment in question and said: "Dieu et
mon droit." (My Ood, you are right.,")
A feature editor has his worries.
For one thing he can't tell just what,
the student body wants in the line
of features. Their sense ot humor
and his may be completely, absolutely and entirely at variance. For instance, I personally, have at least
four features that I would like to see
inaugurated in this paper. For one
thing 1 want to start an honest book
review, for another, I would like to
give a candid, very candid opinion as
to (the merits of various movie shows
In town. Again I would like to run
n "colyum," and finally I want to
throw in an occasional parody, aud
other members of the student body,
may be entirely opposed to all these
features, all of which is, of course,
merely preparatory to a request to
Ubyssey readers,—namely to write
a note, or, better still, to drop In personally to the Feature editor and
tell him If you want any of these
features, or If there Is any bright
Idea of your own you would like to
see used. Do It now. It's the only
way we can ever make the feature
page of this paper "bigger and better
than ever."
Trackmen have got off to an early
and encouraging start, and are turning out thrice weekly at Brockton
Point In preparation for the big
events next month, viz.; University
Track and Field Day and the Western
Intercollegiate meet, Charlie Mottley Is president of the club this year,
and Jack Buchanan is back on the
job. At present he is tenderly car-
resslng each blade of grass on the
new field. Most of the men who did
so well last year are back on the job,
although Harold Thompson Is among
the absentees. Varsity's representatives have been showing rare form
during the summer, Balmer and Buckley doing especially well. Try-outs
ore held Tuesdays, Thursdays and
Saturday from three to five p.m., and
there Is always room for more candidates. Freshmen especially are always welcome.

WHAT THE 1-1*?, 7
NO! Even the Minotaur's Labyrinth
is outclassed. After a nerve-racking
few days of searching for the exit,
the brows of all Freshmen are (to
quote the poet) "wet with honest
sweat," as traces of the way out appear. Nothing short of Indomitable
courage, endless patience, Infallible
understanding, and a keen Instinct for
detective work, could have achieved
this remarkable end. All those concerned In the physical, If not mental,
struggle for gaining a place of vantage from which to scan the sign-posts,
n'ay rightly feel the tide of satisfaction rl» - high In their breasts, However, the battle Is over, or nearly so;
the Minotaur Is encountered and slain;
the exit unravelled, and, Incidentally,
so Is the Time-table In the Calendar.
But as each one Involuntarily draws
a sigh of relief, another, perhaps
greater and more threatening, thought
strikes terror to the heart. Glimpses
of racks and thumb-screws, of axes
and blocks, scare even the bravest.
The thoughts of the condemned are
centred upon one awful moment —
Initiation.
Ode to the Last Bus of the Day.
Sunset and you,
And the soft falling dew
And the tears on my face
Where you parted,
I'll see the dawn break,
When the next morning wakes
Ere I'll walk to the end
Of Tenth Av-en-ue.
The  "Dumbell"  says re  the Arts
building:
I know where the files go,
In the Winter time,
Aud another little drink
or lsol
Wouldn't do them any harm.

Basketball Away
To Good Start
On Tuesday last the Freshmen had
their first try-out at basketball, and
some splendid material was discovered. There were about twenty men
out and a very good practise was held.
The officers or the Club feel confident
that the teams this year will be very
strong and will do well In the various
divisions. Varsity is hoping to top
the league this year, and they want
the support of the student body at
the games. The league is expected
to s»art in another three weeks, so
the teams are getting down to hard
work.
Solons of '26
Hold Session
On Friday last the Executive of Arts
'26 held Its initial meeting of the year
and discussed how It might worthily
follow In the footsteps of former graduating classes. Though there was
some confusion as to the place of
meeting, only George Ledlngham and
the Honorary President failed to attend. It Is understood that Mr. Ledlngham, while driving his patent cat
kilter, had once again told the Doctor
where to get off at.
Johnny Grace, the erstwhile genial
President, appeared to be weighed
down by his onerous duties, and gnawed Impatiently at his luxuriant moustache, while Dert Wales, apparently
free from all financial worries, devoured sandwiches throughout the
proceedings.
Despite various distractions, a certain amount of serious business was
transacted. It was decided that class
fees for the year should be $10.00, and
that $760.00 should be appropriated
for a Valedictory gift. It was also decided to hold two class parties and a
hike, for which occasions a further
$150.00 was voted, despite the frowns
of Mr. Kobe, who plainly considered
that the money should be spent on
debates rather than on such frivolous
amusements.
A Pep Meeting was also suggested,
but it is as yet undecided as to what
particular brand of Pep will be served.
These weighty matters being disposed
of, a certain versatility was shown In
discussing the pros and cons of academic dress. Johnny Grace eloquently carried the day In favour of gowns,
which are to be compulsory as far as
'2G Is concerned. The meeting reached a dramatic climax when It was decided that the glrb of the class were
to run a coffee shop outside the Arts
Building from Monday noon on, the
proceeds to go to the development
I'und. Doris Mackay bad much to s.iy
on this sub|eci, and the conversation
became beetle. The president hail frequently to use his Ravel to enforce
silence, but coffee and cakes dominated the rest of the meeting. Amid intense excitement Frankie Potter, pale
but dauntless, guaranteed lo have the
necessary milk at the coffee stand In
time lor the great opening, and the
meeting closed.
Plans tor Swimming
Club are Outlined
The first meeting this session of the
Men's Swimming Club was held Wednesday at noon. A keen Interest was
shown In the Club, especially by the
Freshmen, about half the attendance
bearing the "mark of innocence."
The President, Mr. Allan, addressed
the meeting. Dr. McDonald wan eleot-
ed to Lit the position of Honorary
President, left vacant by Mr. Sinclair,
President Allan then outlined the program for the year.
Chalmers Church tank has been obtained for Tuesday evenings from 9 to
10.80; while the Canadian Memorial
tank has been secured for Wednesday
afternoons from 4 to 6. On Tuesdays
the first half hour is for swimming,
the second for diving, and the third
for polo. The first few Wednesday ar-
tei noons will be given over to beginners. Polo matches will be arranged
between the Club and the Vancouver
Amateurs, and also the Mermaids, A
meet with the Victorian Club will take
place during the winter.
Every opportunity for learning the
arts of swimming, diving and lire-saving will be afforded to beginners. Life-
saving classes will be held under a
professional Instructor, and coaching
will be given to all.
Next week the tanks will be open
for all prospective members.
Track Men May
Take Long Trip
In A Few Weeks
The U. B. C, as a member of the
W. I. A. A. U„ may send a track team
to the Track Meet to be held at Winnipeg on Oct. 1.7.
Work-outs are being held on the
Varsity track under the supervision
of Jack Buchanan, Varsity coach.
Every student in the University has a
chance to become a member of the
team. In order to make the grade
each man must meet the approval of
the coach and make a good showing
in his event. The following are a few
of last year's records:
100 yards—10 1-5 seconds.
220 yards—22 seconds fiat.
440 yards—62 1-6 seconds,
High Hurdles—17 seconds.
Pole Vault—10 rent 10 Inches,
Mile—4 minute* 41 seconds.
One-half Mile—2 minutes 8 seconds,
Freshmen are Invited to turn out
and show their prowess. Last year
U. B. C, under Jack's coaching, developed several men who had never
run before. Here Is a chance for a
man to help, not only his Alma Mater,
but his class in the lnter-class Traok
Meet which will probably take place
shortly after the Winnipeg meet.

COUNTLESS CARS
CROWE^CAMPUS
Owing to the somewhat remote position of the new University buildings
a great number of students from outlying districts, such as Burnaby and
New Westminster, and some also
from Vancouver, are travelling to and
from the grounds, dally, by auto. Consequently, the view from the Arts
building consists, chiefly, of a long
line of cats—big cars and little cars,
open cars and old cars, Students
have combined In parties to travel by
one car, all starting In tho morning
with ihe earliest of their group, and
all leaving at night with the latest.
So many travel In this manner that
it has been found necessary to institute "tralllc cops" In the mornings,
and early comers And themselves
marshalled at the extreme end ot the
long parking ground, while the late
comers are unfairly favored with a
more   convenient   station.
Not only do the autos solve the
problem of transportation for many,
hut these sume students have also
overcome the Inconvenience caused
by r.he present lack of chairs in the
buildings, and the cars are turned
alternately Into lunch rooms, lounging rooms and study rooms. This c11.-»-
torn can las.i, however, no longer than

STUDENTS' COURT
ALMOSTCOMPLETE
University students will bo interested to learn that plans for the proposod
Students' Court are well under way.
Bepreseutntlves of the fnculty and
students met together on Monday afternoon, when a committee consisting
of Denn Clement, Professor Logan, nnd
Mr, T. G. Wilkinson was appointed to
complete arrangements.
The constitution of the Court was
drawn up this summer, nud only tho
arrangement of certain details is
necessary to make the code of the
Court complete, Consequently, as the
opinions of the faculty and student
representatives concur on these points,
it is expected that the Court will be
in n position tn function in two or
three weeks' time, The i-st'ihlisliinent
of such a system of discipline is a
distinct step forward for the University, and it is hoped that the students
will  get behind the  movement.
