Crucial Game Set for Saturday
The second game of the Big Four Canadian Rugby season, whieh Is
scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Athletic Park, vail answer a question
Which enthusiasts have heen asking themselves tor some time;—Varsity or
Vancouver T According to reports and opinions Vancouver has a powerful
collection of experienced players who are the favorites ln this years fixtures.
The truth of this will be put to a rigorous test when they meet the U.B.C.
team, holders ot the Seaforth and LIpton oups
* Last Saturday's results, 25*0 In the Varsity-Westminster game and 12-6
for Vancouver against the Capital City, may or may not be regarded as
potential "dope." but the flrst games oan scarcely be considered exhibitions
of finished football, or indicative ot the standard of the teams concerned.
flie match Is being eagerly awaited,
by supporters ot the Canadian game
In and around Vancouver oi one of
the most Interesting events on this
fall's sport calendar.
Vancouver's line-up will Include
such men as "Bill" Henderson, who
packs a twO-pound buck, "Aub" Ten-
nant, who can kick, min or pass with
balanced Skill, Btntl Anderson, a de-
Ceptlve open field runner, "Charlie"
Young, reputedly tho best end In the
league* MoRae, a reliable oentre,
"Piff" Donnelly, outstanding quarterback and "Red" Blyward, a slippery
half and relief quarter, all under the
competent supervision ot Alex. Paige
and Jack Cranstun.
On the other hand Varsity's team
with a fair ataount ot experience in
the past and one game already behind
them, can be relied upon to provide
interesting, if not surprising opposition,
flavin Dirom, whose late return kept
him from figuring in the Westminster
Same, will be a welcome addition to
He student's baokfleld. The entire
•quad fcar-wortred out lu the gray
dawn every morning this week and
llll general tone and condition ot the
team looks promising.
Immediately following the Senior
game, the Varsity Intermediates will
tangle with the Lulu Island representatives, Richmond. For the most part,
the men this season are new and In
some caaea "green," but Dr. Burke
«d Norm. Burley have demonstrated
•ir ability in welding a given a-
mount of raw material into some semblance of a team, so the University
entry may spring a surprise, In view
ot last year's showing. Richmond registered consistent wins against Varsity in the 1627-28 games, but this
year may tell a different story.
This double-header will take place
at Athletic Park at 2:15 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
Sorbonne Life Described
Dr. J. Allen Harris
"A Chemist Abroad" was the title
chosen by Dr. J. Allen Harris of the
Department of Chemistry for his talk
before the Chemistry Society at its
flrst open meeting, held on Wednesday at 8.16 ln Sclenoe 300.
Dr. Harris has just returned after
a year spent in research work at the
Sorbonne under Professor Urbain, one
of the greatest chemists of the present day. It was with deep feeling
that the speaker mentioned the consideration met with on every hand
by the foreign research students.
Dr. Harris found that the French
chemists are far ahead of the Americans in the matter of technlc, but that
the apparatus used in the French laboratories Is archaic and not to be
compared with that In use in America.
"Life at the Sorbonne is apt to be
hasardous even for the professors,"
said the speaker, referring to the intense political prejudices which exist
in the student body. These sometimes
break out Into personal violence toward a professor If he is undiplomatic
enough to interject politics Into his
The meeting closed with a vote of
thanks to the speaker, Following this
a short business meeting of the Society was held at which the officers
were elected.
Nw Members An MM ts
Debating Union
On Monday, In Arts 100, at 8 o'clock
a large group of anxious Thespians
gathered to take part In the preliminary try-outs for candidates who desired to enter the Debating Union.
Messrs. Howard, Shaneman, Logan,
and Miss Helen Armstrong succeeded
in securing places In the Union.
Messrs. Gordon Ouy, M. Clement, N.
Mussalmen, W. Shllvock, J. Wlnram,
D. Macdonald, Campbell, Litch, and
D. Watson will try-out again to-day in
Arts 100, at 3 o'clock. There are
three places still to fill.
Subjects chosen by the candidates
last Monday to display their arts
ranged from a convincing proof that
In the state of war a nation la happier than when lt Is nt peace, to a
sound debate which developed reus-
ous why In a condition of savagery
people are happier than under oui
modern civilization. The candidate
who spoke on war declared that an
army was an ideal example of the
workings of pure democracy.
One enthusiastic speaker enlisted
the sympathy of his hearers by giving detailed and personal reasons why
he was at U. B. C. With a voice
choked with emotion, he declared his
few remarks to be a confession, and
each member of the audience secretly
felt that the speaker was voicing
thoughts as worth while and ln as fine
language as the thoughts of those
other great confessors—Augustine,
Rousseau and De Quincey.
Dean Brock Attends
Inauguration at
Dean Brock, acting president, left
here Monday night to represent the
U. B. C. at the Inauguration of the
president of the University of Alberta.
Dr. Robert Charles Wallace, the
new head, was formally weloomed, as
the second president of the University
ot Alberta, on Wednesday. The con-
vocational address was given by R.
B. Bennett, the Conservative leader
ln the Canadian House of Commons.
After a brilliant university career
at Edinburgh, Doctor Wallaoe, the
newly-Installed president, received the
degree of Doctor ot Philosophy at the
University of Ooettingen In Germany.
Following this he took the degree of
Doctor of Science at Edinburgh.
In 1910, Doctor Wallace came out
to Canada to assume the duties of
Professor of Geology at the University of Manitoba. Until he tendered
his resignation, Dr. Wallace remain*
ed actively connected with the University of Manitoba.
Dean Brock is expected to return
home shortly after the installation of
the new president.

Women's baaketball practices are
on Monday and Wednesday, from five
to seven, at the Normal Gym. Everyone who can play at all, and who is
Interested is requested to turn out
on Monday. Teams must be chosen
before October 27.
Dr. J, C. Simpson, head of faculty
of Medicine at McOlll University,
will visit the University of British
Columbia on Monday. He will discuss the matter of preliminary training for the course of medicine with
Stanley W. Matthews, registrar of the
University, and it is understood that
the renults of this discussion will Influence the future policy of the U.B.
C. in regard to pre-medlcal work. Dr.
Simpson states that he thinks lt better for British Columbia medical students to take at least three years In
Arts at U.B.C. before taking up medical work in McOlll.
A meeting of graduates Interested
in the "Graduate Club" is called for
Tuesday at 12.15 In Room Arts 108.
The business to be considered Is:
election of honorary president, adoption of constitution, and a discussion
of the objects of the Society.
In honor of the out-of-town students
registering at the University for tho
first time, the Faculty Women's Club
entertained at a tea In the cafeteria
on Wednesday afternoon from 3.30 to
Acting as general convener was Mrs.
Maclean Fraser, assisted by Mrs. Lemuel Robertson and Mrs. W. Sadler.
Decorations were carried out ln University colors of blue and gold. Sliver
baskets of mlchaelmas daises and chrysanthemums with golden candles In
silver sconces, centered the tea-table
which was presided over by Dean M.
L. Bollert, Mrs. Daniel Buchanan, Mrs.
F. M. Clement, Mrs. B. C. Hartley and
Miss M. F. Orey.
Serving the guests were Mrs. A. G.
Hutchinson, Mrs. F. M. Knapp, Mrs.
H. T. Logan, Mrs. F. O. C. Wood, Mrs.
S. J. Schofleld, Mrs. H. F, Angus, Mrs.
L. B. Stacey, Mrs. F. H. Soward and
Mrs. Charles,
Partners for the afternoon were arranged by means of an original contest, about a hundred and fifty out-of-
town students being preaent.
The old light between Ex-King
George and Varsity English Ruggers
for supremacy in the Miller Cup series
will be renewed when the teams clash
at Brockton Point at 1:11 on Saturday
Ootober 18th. Varsity now has the
Miller Cup won by Science last year
and expects to hold It, but the struggle
will be a keen one.
Ex-King George will have, with a
few changes, the same team whioh
worked so well together last year. As
evidenced in laat Saturday's game
when they vanquished Seaforths 84*0.
they have a smooth-working, fait, fifteen and It will take a strong team to
down them.
About thirty men were out to the
Varsity senior rugby practice Wednesday and Coach Trywhitt put them
through a fast workout. The men are
getting back in condition and showed
a lot of speed.
It would be difficult to predict
the outcome but a very close, hard-
fought game is expected by those who
have been watching the two teams.
The Ex-High forwards are about even
with the Varsity men though perhaps,
having a alight edge. In the oackfield
Ex-Kings have a Utile advantage in
speed. Bob Rowan will take Murray
Rowan's place on the three-quarters,,
while Jack Barbaric will fill the full
back position. Ford has been picked
as Varsity's last line of defence and
his tackle should prove a big stumbling block to the F.x-KIiik'h chances.
The Varsity team for Saturday will
probably be as follows: Mason, Foerester, Murray, Simpson, Player, Fraser, Farrls, forwards; B. Barratt,

The University Students' Debating
Union has definitely taken Its place
beside other official societies on the
campus. At Monday's meeting of
Council the Union received the formal
benediction of thai body.
Although the Union Is an experiment, the Interest shown ln it by the
student body ensures that it will be a
successful one. At the first meeting
of the year which will be held on Tuesday at noon ln Arts 108, the officers
for the coming year will be elected.
At least three Inter-colleglate de*.
bates have been definitely decided upon. Four men will be needed to resist
the attack and to wage an offensive
against one university in the Western
University's Debating League. Thia
year Varsity sends two men to Alberta
and receives two men from Alberta In
the league.
There will also be two debates, Involving four teams, with the University of Washington. Two of these
teams will be composed of women.
Besides these intercollegiate contests the Union will challenge city
clubs and send individual speakers
down town to address societies
throughout the city. As soon aa the
new executive has been elected It
wtll draw up a program which will
definitely put public speaking in ita
place amongst the students.

Toe University of British Columbia will not pay Us athlwtic
coaches this year, according to a decision of the Students'
Oounoil. Reasons advanced for the decision are that fundB are
insufficient, and that such a practice would tend to overemphasize and perhaps commercialize to some extent, sport at
tho university.
Tht) reason that funds are insufficient is no doubt a good
reason why ooaohes should not be paid, but we question whether
it la a sufficient reason. Surely tho university has some funds
to spend on athletics, and if suoh is the case at least a portion of
these funds should go primarily to the work of education along
athletic lines, namely to those who teach the science of athletics.
If we admit the work of a university is to prepare future
oltisens for the world, few will deny that athletic activity plays
ei great part ln that work of preparation. And since teachers in
other forms ot education receive payment, why should not
teachers of thlettc education receive payment for their services?
We believe that athletic education should be treated similarly
to other forms ot education. Text-books, gowns, and other
Questionable necessities are not supplied to students for lectures;
but professors are supplied to lead, encourage, and stimulate
the students. In the same way we could do without big block
sweaters and equipment, but we should have coaches to lead,
encourage, and stimulate athletic activity. In short, if this
university is to encourage athletic activity (and we believe it
should), then athletic coaches should be paid, for the results
would more than pay for the costs, educationally as well as
Concerning the argument that sport would be over-emphasised If coaches were paid, we do not think there is much danger
of that. At least not so long as the "elegiblllty rules" are enforced and a high standard of education is maintained.
Would paid coaches tend to commercialize sport? We do
not see why this should occur any more than the system of paid
.professors tends to commercialize education at a university.
But even if sport were commercialized to some extent and made
to pay for itself, wherein would be the harm? Might it not tend
tO ttiake education more easily obtainable for everyone?
We would advise students to give the matter serious consideration before they finally decide as a university not to pay
athletic coaches. Such a decision would not prove complimentary to the coaches who have so far given their time and services
practically free of charge to the university. In fact we think
the university is presumptuous to expect these services free. If
on the other hand, students decide as a university to pay coaches,
then we suggest that every sport be given some attention by the
coaches, in proportion to its importance at the university.
At present a custom which is a constant source of discomfort to many students is daily becoming more prevalent. The
practice of reserving chairs in the cafeteria has caused considerable comment in previous years and yet at the beginning of this
session, as at the beginning of former sessions, we must attack
a threadbare problem which involves those qualities of fair play
and justice upon which every student of this university should
pride himself.
To come into the cafeteria between eleven forty-five and
twelve and to find almost every seat reserved shows the well-
meaning but mistaken ideas of kindness which exist among the
students. It is certainly most unfair to those who hurry down
immediately after the bell and who hunt unsuccessfully for a
place to feee some more fortunate person saunter In to the
comfort of a jealously guarded seat.
It is not necessary to dwell further on the evils of this
practice as It exists at present. We would like, however, to
remind students of the few obvious remedies which would so
greatly add to the improvement and consequent comfort of our
Firstly we would suggest that no student, by reserving
places should consider the comfort of a friend before that of a
more deserving person. Secondly we would suggest that all
students whose time tables make It possible, should lunch before
twelve. Lastly we would suggest that as long as the fine weather
continues those who bring their lunch should enjoy the bracing
air of Point Grey and refrain from monopolizing places ln the

May I, through your respected columns, voice what I believe to be the
general consensus of opinion of a
great number of Students in all Faculties regarding the conservative attitude Council has taken against the
Aggie Judging Teams being sent to

in Its flrst two years of competition
the Dairy Products Team took highest
honors, and last year maintained the
permanent trophy while the Dairy
Cattle Judging team scored the highest
number of points ever made by a
student team at the Pacific International.
Surely the Student Body, when they
realise what these teams have done
towards putting U.B.C. on the map ln
in a Meld of competition which be*
speaks the standard of learning at this
University will realise that such a
trifling sum as $250.00 is mighty
cheap advertising. Even during those
hard time post-war days over at Fair-
view such a "close shaved" policy of
saving was never dreamed of. Are we

Editor, "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:*
At the semi-annual meeting ot the
Alma Mater Sooiety held last week,
there was talk that the "honor system" of student discipline was deemed
to be a failure, and that some other
means would have to be devised to
keep the unruly students in order.
This was blared forth on the front
page of the "Dally Province" to the
Vancouver public. "In "The Common
Round" Mr. Butterfield asks just what
is meant by the honor system. The
students would do well to ask the
same thing. No one seems to know
any moro about lt than that one Is
"on one's honor" to behave one's self.
The Students' Council has now
passed a motion that the honor system
will continue to be operative. Students who are Interested In the welfare of the University, and we believe
there are some, are wondering jUBt
what it all means. Quite a few have
understood from it that smoking in
the halls is prohibited. Many of them
already knew this from the "No Smoking" signs In the halls.
Everybody seems to be uncertain
whether each student is bound, on his
honor, to report to the proper authority (what ever that is) any other
student whom he knows to have committed an offence against one of the
constitution's by-laws. Is it the duty
of every man and woman to act as a
stool pigeon on the others? We sincerely hope not. In this connection
we shall quote from an article in "College Humour," hy Percy Marks, author
of the "Plastic Ako:"
"The supporters of this system defend It by .saying that it places the
responsibility where it belongs—on
the students themselves .... A worse
way of instilling a sense of honor into
young men can hardly be Imagined.
I hold with the small boy theory that
'a guy who peaches on another guy
is a bum.' .... only one thing can
load him Into 'peaching' . . . .damnable
self-righteousness .... I could never
forgive myself if I had ever reported
another student to the college authorities. Making stool pigeons out of
the entire student body is no way to
make gentlemen out of them. I know
of two colleges where the students
were offered the honor system which
included the stool pigeon requirement.
At both colleges the boys rejected it
Indignantly. The more honor to
If the same system  is offered us,
let's deal with It in the same manner.

Epistles From
Abdulla Pasha
(No. 3)
Sultan Mohammed Rasem Bey Bl Bek-
alefrl Meshrib!
In the name of Allah, greetings to
your majesty, to the wives In your
harem, to the camels In your oasis,
to the slaves In your attendance, may
you forever prosper.
My father, I have decided to write
to you at least every two days, therefore see that your steward Increases
my monthly allowance to allow for
expenditures in paper, pens, and
1 regret to say that. In my first letter to you I stated that I was living
In a hoarding house; I have since
moved to an hotel I found It Impossible to live in the boarding house,
because it so much resembled a harem. Only that the conditions are
reverted, all the inmates being men,
except for the landlady, who Is the
terror of the boarders, especially
around the end of the month.
In the hotel lt Is much different;
there are a great number of slaves,
that come when you press a button,
I have a number ot rooms here and
I have engaged a group of personal
slaves, but here I can't buy a slave
outright, but must pay so much each
month, as long as I need him. However, I have that fixed up all right
The flrst night that I was here, I
retired at nine o'clock, to be kept
awake by a noise of some sort. I
dressed quickly and went down Into
a little room that moves up and down,
then I saw a great crowd of people.
Not seeing what they were interested
in, I went my way. I wandered around
for awhile and soon I began to feel
hungry, so, as the rooms are decorated with palms, so I picked out a
small one and started to climb lt, to
get some dates. Before I had reached the top a man In uniform called
to me to descend. From his uniform
I was afraid that he was a policeman,
so that I dared not shoot, because ln
this country they object to shooting.
Anyway I came down, and he took
me to see the manager. Now I live
in another hotel.
I heard that lectures at the University start soon, so that I will soon
have news for you about what happens out there, Just now, though, I
want to tell you about something that
happened to-day. I was right in front
of my hotel, when I decided to cross
the street. As soon as I had started
a car came along and I had to jump
back. I tried again with the same
result, and kept on trying. Then a
policeman put his hand on my shoulder and said, "You can't, do that. It
Is Jaywalking,"
"(> guardian of the poor," I replied,
"I know I cannot. But It Is not jaywalking.   It is madness."
He laughed at me and then ran
across the street to stop a man from
crossing on that side. I went to my
room fed up with these Western
Now, may Allah smile on you until
the end of time, for until then I remain,

Playing Field To
Be Improved
At a meeting of the Men's Athletic
Executive held in Auditorium 808
several things of importance were discussed. It was deolded to hold the
regular meetings every two weeks Instead of every week aa formerly.
Tommy Berto, president, said that tf
any one on the executive were to
Sing anything hefore Council before
Had been passed by the executive,
he would be against lt.
It waa decided t0 put four ot the
Unlveralty groundsmen on the playing
field. It was estimated that this would
take three weeks to oomplete, and that
the ooat would be $888 unless Dean
Clement consented to let them use a
team free of charge.
BUI Hoggerty mentioned that there
Wns a prospect of a team (Canadian
Hugby) playing the winner of the Big
4 league and Varsity during th*
Christmas holidays. It was suggested
that an attempt be made to have the
Canadian and Bnglish Rugby gamea
on datea whioh did not conflict during
the holidays ao as to insure a maxl
taura attendance for both games.
The queation of ahoes for the four
rjy,' - major sports waa diaeussed and it was
decided that the Bxeoutlve go on
record as approving the buying ot
ihoea tor the said sports provided
that the student paid half the price.
"ludgets were submitted to the presl-
t for discussion in Council.   The
mlng Club and the Baaketball
discussed the matter of paid
Obacb.es.  It was decided that if a paid
coach wai hot employed attendance
and membership would tall off so
that refusal of this item would only
ba false economy.
-,, It was suggested that Bob Granger
M paid a ealary for his coaching of
Swimming, Track, and Bnglish Hugby,
. Vanity was defeated 1-0 In the first
league game In Women's Grass
flochey on Wednesday afternoon
against South Vanoouver High School
on their grounds. Since Varaity haa
Sad only one practice and has been
without a coach, they did very well In
keeping thi score down against what
i* considered the strongest and
Owiftest team in the league.
The game opened with a rush when
varaity brought the ball toward the
lOuth Vancouver goal, but they were
eheoked by expert fullbacks and the
tome thett moved the other way. The
play waa confined for the most part
around this goal. Nellie Melllsh and
Jean Salter at fullback kept the shooting ©rick fairly clear but were unable
to stem completely the rush of the
Jilgh School forwards. Mable Mac-
ponald, although this was her first
experience In this position, played like
a veteran, making many miraculous
rescues, missing the ball only once,
late in the game. During the flrst
half, Varsity made many errors but
each time got away clear and the forwards took the ball toward the oposl-
tion's goal. Muriel Harvio and Carol
Sellars on the forward line, made a
very good combination and caused the
South Vancouver backs much worry.
Evelyn Cruise at center-forward played a steady, consistent game. The lineup waa as follows: Goal, Mable MacDonald; Fullbacks, Nellie Melllsh and
Jean Salter; Halves, Oven Humphreys, Angela Van Vooght, Mamie
MacMurray; Forwards, Muriel Harvie,
Carol Sellers, Evelyn Cruise, M. MacDonald, O. Idiens.

Siring freshmen who want a place on

The Club has procured Bob Brown's
