The university's PlrSt VIII. left tor
Seattle on Wednesday, where they
will hold their final workouts tor the
race with University ot Washington
freshmen orews on Saturday, Maroh
28. Although they will use their own
oars, they will have to accustom them*
selves to a strange boat, and familiarise themselves to the oourse.
The race starts ln the middle of
Lake Washington and the last quarter
mile of the course ls in a canal, which
provides an excellent view for the
spectators who line its banks.
Although the crew bas only four
experienced oars, It has been practising steadily since Christmas, and,
under the guiding hand of Coach
Johnny Oliver, has developed into a
powerful machine. This was shown
last week, When they lost by only half
a length to the Vancouver Rowing
Club's crew of veteran oars.
Washington's Freshmen, on the
other hand, are all novices, in that
they have not rowed before this season. They make up for this, however,
by dally practices, and by their else,
tor all Washington's oars are over six
feet tall. They row the "Connlbear"
stroke, which is a shorter stroke than
that used in the Bnglish style, used
by British Columbia's men, as was
seen when the crews me. in 1927.
B. C. rowing at 28 strokes to the
minute, held its own against Washington's 34 strokes to the minute.

Gives Views on Frats.
Approached by the "Ubyssey" for
his views on fraternities, Bruce Carrick, associate editor, and member of
the Chi Omega Psl fraternity, submitted the following atatement.
"Before the 'Ubyssey' broke the tradition of never mentioning fraternities
in its columns all opposition bad been
latent. Rumblings of discontent were
heard, but no flames ot dissatisfaction
were seen. This year, however, the
great Ood DesBrlsay ot the Fourth
IBstate ripped off the cap of the vol*
eano and out shot wordy streams of
hot criticism Into the pages ot the
college Journal. Determined to defy
hide-bound custom, the editorial policy
was to make an Issue of fraternities
with the result that a subjeot which
once was more or less taboo Is being
intelligently discussed upon the campus.
"Thinking students will admit, I am
sure, that some of the fraternities
across the border exercise a pernicious Influence. Bxcesslve gambling, hard drinking and continual
Sleasure-seeklng cannot be condoned,
for la the blatant babbltry fostered
compatible with gentlemanly conduct

Gym to be Erected
By Autumn Term
Says Tolmie
The long awaited University gymnasium should be erected by the time
the students re-assemble In September, stated Ross Tolmie, president of
the A.M.S., at the meeting of tbe Student Council held Monday night. A
report trom the secretary of the N.F.
C.U.8. and a budget for tho award of
pins to tbe Publications Board made
up the rest of the business discussed.
A fifteen year bond tor 186,000
passed the direction of Pemberton ft
Son, at a meeting a few weeks ago,
on the condition that the government
architect would guarantee the building
to last twenty or twenty-five years.
On Monday night the University
lawyer returned from an Interview
with the architect In Victoria aud declared that the building they specified
would last the desired time.
Pemberton and Son expect to havo
this issue out by the middle of May. It
would then leave tour months to construct the gymnasium.
The gymnasium will, ln all probability, be one of tne greatest problems
tor next year's council. There is certain to be much discussion as to the
periods that will be allotted to the
different olubs; but this will not effect
the average atudent. Whether lt be
basketball, traok, badminton, he can
be sure of having far more time in
the gym than at present. The next
year should show a remarkable Increase ot Interest ln these sports.
At this meeting the Publications
Board presented a graduated scale of
their members for the presentation of
pins as awards for service. The question as to whether the awards will be
made, is to be brought up at the next

opportunity la now being given tor

fact that all members ot recognised

Dr. Wmchester Speaks
On Valuejf Genesis
In a very Interesting address to the
V. C. U, on the "Value of Genesis,"
Or. A. B. Winchester, D.D., emphaa*
Ised that the prominent and unique
value of Genesis to us Is not as a book
of soience. Ita value lies In tbe fact
that it is from the expression there*
in of God as the Creator of the Universe that man has built all his philosophy, science and history, tt is
tlie basis of all Christian belief. It
Genesis is done away with, there ls
no explanation ot a beginning, no
basis for the rest of the Bible, and
consequently no light upon the deepest quest of human life; namely, a
searching after God.
The speaker pointed out that lt ls
Impossible to profess an acceptance
of the Bible and at the same time
reject as authentio its earlier books.
Genesis, he said, must be one of two
things; either a record of man's
imagination or a revelation from God.
It declares itself to be the latter. If
it is not, it Is absolutely false and
cannot be defended on any grounds.
As a proof of this he said that man
has tour sources ot Information. First,
intentional; from which he gains his
conception of space, time, number,
right or wrong and the personality
and existence of God. Second, scientific; which is aystematlsed knowledge. Third, philosophical; which ls
a relating of truth to truth. From
these three sources man may come to
the belief that there ls a Ood, but
he can have no knowledge ot his own
spirit or of his relation to God. Here,
then, man must have a revolution
from God, Tho Bible, beginning nt
Genesis,   ls   such  a  revolution.
Another support of its inspiration
ls tbe Instructive appeal which lt
has in itself to all who read it.

"Our song is ended, but ths melody lingers on." Like other
University organisations ths Publications hoard concludes with
A sigh of relief the work it has been doing throughout ths year.
Yet behind this sigh there Is deep regret — the regret of
friends about to part,—regret that "the old order changeth, giving place iii new."
Yet. tile other members of the University, we have done our
work conscientiously. Whether our efforts have been mors beneficial than harmful is not for us to judge. At any rate wo have
had an Influence — ths influence of an unhampered press. This
influence of our work remains after we have gone. Therein we
are oontent. On the other hand we take with us an influence,
w-the influence of our University. We extend our thanks to all
those responsible for making the University what it has been to
u*~-*n Institution of opportunity, .
We hand over the reins of college Journalism to our successors. Their work in the past and their enthusiasm for the
future justify the confidence placed In them. We trust they
im oontiuue to enjoy the unhampered "freedom of the press"
whioh we experienced this year, and so long as they enjoy this
freedom we feel sure that University publications will develop
lor the better under their guidance,    .
In our issue of February 22 we asked: "What is your opinion of fraternity organisation?" Since that time the 4'Ubyssey"
has been conducting an investigation on the campus for the answer. Of course it was impossible to get everyone's views on
the question, so certain representative people were selected with
a view of balancing non-fraternity and fraternity interests.   Our
findings follow: _.*..,_.
A.   Friendship:
(1) Fraternities are built on a worthy ideal,—the ideal of
brotherhood. But insofar as the brotherhood Is limited, the ideal
is limited.
(2) Their value lies in closer congenial contacts which do
not result from ordinary university life. This in turn may lead
to a better understanding of university ideals. At the same time
they foster the growth of cliques and thus distintegrate a corporate university life.
(3) They create a binding link between graduates and undergraduates; and a link with other universities in North
America. At the same time they shift the Interest of students
from this institution to others across the border, and tend to
make students forget possibilities of friendship on their own
what they admit is good in theory, when this theory applies
against fraternities,
D.   Suggestions for Improvement:
(1) Control of fraternities should be vested in the Inter-
Fraternity council, subjeot always to Students' Coucll. Non-
fraternity interests should he represented by non-fraternity representatives on both councils.
(2) Probation of. fraternities is desirable, providing it is applied on the basis of standardised merit, rather than on the basis
ot youth and discrimination.
E.   Conclusions:
(1) Although in the end lt depends on the individual
whether or not the fraternity shall be beneficial to the University, fraternities provide an environment whioh is not altogether
a good force ln ths University.
(t) Although perhaps some of ths evils which go with
fraternity organisation are inevitable whether or not the organisation is present, fraternities tend to make their memebers satis-
fled with unjust conditions as they exist. This is not good for
(8) We caution readers that possibly some important
features may have been omitted and others unduly stressed In
this report. The "Ubyssey" has attempted to point out the defects of our present system. It rests with the Alma Mater Sooiety
to remedy these defects.
—M. D.
Editor's Note
The retiring editor-in-chief takes this opportunity to publicly acknowledge the debt he owes to his staff. He has occupied
the singularly happy position of being the recipient of any oredit
whieh oomes in to the Publications board, while at the same time
he has usually managed to shift any blame to other members of
his staff. Now, however, conscience prides him- He publicly
admits: that without the untiring Work And patient co-operation
which has been generously given by the entire Publications
board, he could have accomplished nothing, while muoh of the
failure of the Publications board has been a result of his own
MAjtpg 22t 1929.
lOT-mii—iiii i,ii|niMi' —"■--
Friendship cannot* be organized by artificial methods.
B.    Practical Effects:
Fraternities provide the elements of a home for out-
students,  but  tend to make non-fraternity strangers
more isolated.
(2) They give social training and social contacts which are
(3) They involve some students in expenditures of money
which they can ill afford.
C.   Influence on University as a Whole:
(1) Fraternities are of value if the Interests of the University are always placed above those of the fraternity. They
have, however, a tendency to interfere in the conduct of student
affairs with which, as fraternities, they have no concern. In
short, their influence tends to destroy democracy.
(2) Fraternities emphasise social and class distinctions ln
an alleged democratic educational Institution.
(3) They have a tendency to vote solidly on questions affecting the University. This practice is artificial rather than intellectual.   It leads to loyalty to fraternity rather than to right.
(4) Fraternities tend to create ln their members a conflict
of loyalties and thus destroy a university "esprit de corps."
(6) Fraternities are a power which can, and often does,
hinder the advancement of a non-fraternity person In university
life. This is done by over-stressed campaigning for their own
members, and Indirect slurs or silenoe against other people. This
"silence" was evidenced by at least one instanoe In our recent
elections. A non-fraternity candidate was unable to Induce three
fraternity friends to speak for him. Though they declared him
to be the best candidate for the position, their admitted reason
for silenoe was that they feared fraternity ostracism if they
publically favored him over their own fraternity oandldate, who
was running.
(6) Fraternities are a power whose influence may work
in opposition, or fall to co-operate with, university interests. Not
only has this been evidenced by a atrong opposition in some
fraternity quarters to the Ubyssey's policy of discussing fraternity affffalrs, but also there has been a decided lack of co-operation in getting certain fraternity members to baok in practice

Alumni Executive To
Keep Records
The Alumni Executive has been
successful In arranging with the University Administration for keeping
Jointly a complete record of all graduates of the University ot British
Columbia. These records will be
kept on the new Cardex system Installed for the purpose ln the offloe
of the assistant registrar.
Your executive will be saved a lot
of grey hair If eaoh alumnus will
take the responsibility upon himself
of soudlng tn any recent information
about himself that we may not have,
such as change of address, occupation
or status, or receipt of additional degrees. Please address all communications to "Recording Secretary, Alumni Association, University ot British
Columbia, Vanoouver, B. C.
Please Note:
The University authorities have informed us that no advanced degrees
can be recorded unless official notloe
ls received from the University granting the degree. In order that you
may be properly listed please see
that this condition is compiled wtth.
Attends Mm
of Anmican 6rads
Held at University ef WeeMngten,
January Nth, 11ft
The University of BrttUb Columbia
was represented at thii conference by
Mr, Harry Purdy, Arts '8s, whe has
seat a detailed report of the discussions to the Alumni Executive.
In his personal comments on the
conference Mr. Purdy pointed eat
that there were two major topics sp
for discussion; first that of the Alumni Magaslne In relation to its edit*
SrtaFand advertising policy, and see*
6hd that bt alumni membership. Both
ot these problems sie of interest to
the alumni of the University ot Brit*
ish Columbia. That of the magaslne,
while important, does not interest ns
ii yet ln suoh a vital way as it does
the ether members of the Alumni
Conference whioh is made up ot
Pacific Coast Universities some ot
whieh have very large alumni membership and correspondingly large
publications ln respect to circulation.
The membership problem is Si troublesome to the larger organisations
as it is to our own. The alumni ot
the University of California has a
paying membership of 21,000 with
25,000 non-members. Others are as
follows: Washington, thirty-six per
oent paid up members, Oregon State
College, twenty-five per cent, and ths
University of Oregon forty-eight per
oent The Alumni ot the University
ot British Columbia has a paid membership of about three hundred out
of sixteen hundred or approximately
sixteen per cent It is quite obvious
then, that we have a long way to go
yet to make our membership what
lt ought to be.
Much dlsousslon brought out many
valuable: suggestions on how to remedy existing deficiencies. Two ot
the most important suggestions for
keeping a large paid up membership
were to collect fees along with class
fees in senior year and to have
Alumni solicited by some prominent
Alumnus. This was done by personal letter. The flrst ot these suggestions, that Is, that fee shall be
collected with the clasa fee has already been adopted in our life membership plan, whereby each graduating student pays five dollars with
graduation fee as a life membership
fee to the Alumni Association.
Value of Alumni to University
Some of the speakers were very
emphatic in stressing the value and
potential value of the Alumni to the
University and the University to the
Alumni. Dr. M. Lyle Spencer, president of the University of Washington, who welcomed tbe delegates to
the conference, said In part "The
alumni In their relations to the University, are a problem on every
campus and 1 suppose that the relation of tho alumni to the campus ia
one of possibly half a doaen major
problems whioh every university haa
to face . . . The alumni possesses
great potential power for any university: It doesn't make any difference where. That power has never
been adequately capitalised, nor do I
believe that it ever will be unUl the
Institutions have some more efficient
means for making the contacts and
keeping the contacts which they have
made .... Frankly I don't believe
it la ever going to be solved until
ths authorities become aware of the
potential power that the alumni hold.
When they do realise It then they
are going to be able to solve It In
only one way; that la by getting some
distinguished group ot men or the
alumni themselves to endow tbe University with a sum of money, equaling a half million dollars or a million
dollars, ths proceeds of which are to
be used for effecting contacts between tbe alumni and the university."
University Aid to Alumni
Tbe discussion brought out the tact
that some universities were contributing to the support of the Alumni
Office. Ohio State University pays
26,000 a year for the keeping of
alumni records; Wooster College forty
per oent, University of Washington
24,000 on a budget ot 214,000, while
the University of Oregon contributes
space and stationery.

"Tbe sad tale of a Don" was told
by a woman writer in the "Isls," the
Oxford undergraduate weekly, recently, under the heading "The Equality of
the Sixes."
"This learned old gentleman," she
writes, "lives some three miles without the Olty wall. It is his habit to
pbllge his unwilling pupils to traverse
this great distance once a week in
order to listen for one hour to the
words of wisdom which may or may
not tall trom his lips.
"When these unfortunate young
ladles arrive at the house of the Don
and enter in, instead of finding friendly warmth and sympathy with their
possibly chilly condition, they find
two chairs placed side by side on a
dust sheet, well out of range of the
fire and at a safe distance from the
learned gentleman himself, so that
the possibility of him catching any
contagious disease from these noisome young females Is reduced to a
minimum. It would be Interesting to
know it he treats hie male pupils in
such scurvy fashion.."
The writer adds: "We, the women
of Oxford, have to submit to a system
ot policing tar more efficient than
Scotland Yard."

Group Is Organized By
Grads at Varsity
This year a new organisation has
been formed on the campus known
as the Graduates' Club. Ita members
comprise graduates from any university who are engaged In work at
the University of B. C. Dr. Bill Ure,
Arts '24, Is the honorary president,
Mr. Fredle Munro, the president, Miss
Margaret Keillor, the vice-president,
Miss Helen Mathews, secretary-treasurer, and Miss Mildred Campbell
social convener,
Several interesting meetings have
been held, when papers on varied
aubjecta have been given. From a
social standpoint the club has been
very successful, two enjoyable parties
having been held.
The Ideal of the Grad'a Club has
been to provide a meeting ground for
the grads at the University In all the
various departments and this seems
to have been achieved In a measure
at least The enthusiasm of the members and the Interest taken ln the
club appear to guarantee it a permanent place as an alumni organisation.
Success ls not due to Kite, oppor*
tunlty or even talent—it tu due to
character, declared R. L. Oalder,
K.O., while addressing the ixts Undergraduate Sooiety of MeOlll recently in Moose Hall.
Mr. Colder outlined five, pitfalls
wherein the young man leaving college, is liable to fall. First, he aald,
there ls a general dlscllnation to-day
to do a full day's work for a full
day's pay. This ta true of both the
laboring class and In professional Ufo.
This "slacking" he considered the
greatest pitfall of life.
Procrastination was the second pitfall outlined. The result ot this, aald
the speaker, was sorrow, anxiety and
worry, declaring he knew a Judge
who died heart-broken because he had
early fallen Into the habit of procrastinating and waa unable to keep ap
with his work upon ascending the
Debt is one form of the broken
word, he said in warning students so
keep out of debt Nine-tenths ot political men who have fallen Into corruption have done so because they have
fallen Into the olutohes of creditors
who desired to use them as instnt*
ments in gaining tbelr own ends, said
Mr. Calder.
The speaker's laat two i*ecomm sanations were to avoid the urge to reform
the world and not to make speeches
In public unless these were Incidental
to life's work, saying that the public
generally considered a maa a shallow
vessel who found It necessary to sp*ll
over In public.

We have pleasure ln recording our congratulations to an
ell iii eyn-pathetlc friend of our Alma Mater, Dr. Ray Ltman
Wilbur, President of Stanford, on his elevation to Cabinet tank
at Washington, Dr. Wilbur has been among ns many times, his
last virtt being the occasion of a remarkable address, heard by
many V. B. 0. grads, on Paolflo Relations and how to eliminate
Metkm on Its shores. Dr. Wilbur will not be lost to the edu-
efttlon sphere; In his offloe of Secretary of Ihe Interior are the
JtoettaMS of eontroltmg eduoatlon In Alaska and the Federal
territories, whose problems are similar to those of our own In
4fce remoter regions of British Columbia.
Dr. Wilbur's personal attributes are best described by an
anecdote his friends are pleased to ten about bim. When he
was a young physician in Ban Francisco, a certain fttanford
efttmMis vtsrted him in tbe capacity of patient. Repairs completed, the patient asked: "What's the bill, Rest0 "There isn't
•ny bill," replied Wilbur. "When I started out, I spade up my
mind that certain men I'd known in the university oould never
pay me for'medical treatment, no matter how rich they became
or how poor I stayed.  You'ro on the list."
the Wilburs, like the Hoovers, are a 100 per cent, grad
meW. fir. Wilbur, like the President of the United Wetes whose
Cabinet he has Joined, met his stately and beauttful «tfe in the

As a grad of two yean standing
I feel deeply the rseponslblllty of saying something wtf£ will help theae

I feel strongly, namely journalists.

steel yourself tor your high and solitary endeavour, and tn time perhaps
you may have aa enormous fur ooat
and a long blaok eJgar aad men will
ostentatiously tell you their finest
thoughts. I feel, however, that I nest

And It aa exceedingly useful standby
ln after years to Mustrato a lecture
to Junior reporters, and as padding In
speech at municipal banquets. Besides It Is pretty dlfltoult to behave
aa a ravening timber-wolf when filled
to satiety with nourishment
After tbe flrst tew years you may
find possible companion, la other
Journalists who are also emerging
from their novitiate, but even then I
should advise you to choose them
with care. Let them be people who
can unerringly copy down any Joke
made by a Judge or politician, and
be ready to substitute some well
authenticated joke from their own
storo should one not be forthcoming.
Do not choose those who from some
mathematical freak are too meticulous about copying figures, or who
waste good time, and space by reporting statements in full. A modern
Journalist can extract the same brand
of cream from any number ot different speeches by a brilliant noting ot
a few words hero and there, and of
course the riper the better.
But these little technical problems
must be learned by experience. I
would merely like to prepare you for
the general trend of your career.
However, do not be downcast Perhaps after ail you can be miners or
nawiee or cooks in peace and contentment. And I am afraid that the
real value of this article la lost he-
case I dare not say anything about
Journalists for fear ot reprisals. However I should like to make one remark before closing: It was my turn
to hit, and now are we quits t

This year the Feature Bdltor has

has been thoroughly chastised. Three

Soribblewsll and Mabel McOIIlIcuddy,
have made their debut, aad an out*

Incense to the nostrils of mighty
Before1 taking offloial leave we wish
to thank all three outside contributors, especially R. H. T., who contributed twice. The rest ot the 77,000 words
of muck published during the year
were written by ths Feature Staff of
one and occasionally two men.
As we write this, there are tears
falling upon the typewriter, but they
are not tears of sorrow—on the contrary.
Editor's Note:—Next year, it the
student body wants muck, it will have
to write Its own.

One Muck Writer

_. .... .   strode by thsm.
None dared confront hits,
AU save him right ef way,
As fie strode onward,
Boarded and boding-
lohn ths UbrariaaT
ttsi thi Ohawsrtan,
Nightmare of Freshmen,
Puller of noses,
Cracker of oraniums,
Followed the sidewalk
And seottstloaliy
Smilsd is he strutted,
held erectly
his time-piece
_, T behind him—
poo the Chaucerian.
Students before him
Sped from his pathway.
StoVped ofHhlsidewalh
While he strode by them.
None dared confront him,
All gave him right of way,
Ai he Strode onward-
Nightmare ot Freshmen—-
Doc the Chaucerian.
Soon on the pathway
eig the Lily Pond,
e oetneat stops
climb up tbe hillside,
John the Librarian,
Haughtily hirsute,
Doc the Chaucerian
Squarely confronted.
3i«n on that sidewalk,
Needlessly narrow,
Titans contended:
Battled with dignity
Battled with haughtiness
Battled with arrogance,
Coldly contemptuous.
In perfect silence,
Silence of dignity
Bye met with glaring eye
Disdainful and dauntless,
Neither would back away
Nor would step sideways,—
Doc the Chaucerian,
Nightmare of Freshmen,
John tho Librarian,
Seigneur of Silence.
So now In after-years
Rosy-cheeked freshmen
Walking the campus,
Wide-eyed and wondering,
Stare at the skeletons
Barring the pathway,
On the cold concrete
Faotng each other,
Then does the Freshie
Say to the senior,
"What mean these baleful bones
All weather-whitened.
Are they rare fossils
Dug from the strata
Of the pre-Cambrlan
Or Pleooehtof
"No," says the Senior,
Cynical soothsayer,
"This is the skeleton
Of one Who terrorised
AU who laughed loudly
In yonder library
Where he was maater.
This la the skeleton,
Onco bold and bearded
Of him renowned aa
John the Librarian,
Seigneur of Silenoe."
"What Is the other onef"
Then asks the Freshie,
"That one that carries
A gold-plated time-piece
Hanging behind blm?"
"That" says the Sealer,
"That's the professor
Who, la his ilssses,
Tortured the FMeamea.
Those bones before yea are
All that Is mortal ef

lb the Wrair by ths window,
All at once I had a vision—
Who have sweated la my Bervict>-
tn sarwar against that devil
Known to win is "College Humor."
Mighty times we've had together
When the ink ran smooth and freely,
And the wisecracks, pun* aad ben
' mots
Came in hundreds without effort
And I know how ih my absence
All the Feature Staff has struggled
Working grimly op In silence,
Striving without Inspiration;
And Just when all hips has vanished
I have smiled aad sent a brain-wave
And behold the muoh oame freely,
And  you've  slammed  the  Caf.  or
Yea, the Guardian Of the Silence
Counoil, oandldates snd Chessmen,
Solenoemen and even Aggies,
Frats aad Literary efforts.
Then there was our friend MoGooffus,
He who ran for Students' Council.
And again our darling Mabel
Mabel, named MeOtuTeaddy.
Oscar Scrlbblewell was mentioned
With that yellow villain Suey.
All of these and many others   -
Have assisted la my purpose
Ot persistent devil-thumping.
Fare thee well, year term is ever
Other Muokmen may assemble
But lt seems extremely doubtful."
With these words the vision vanished.
As tbe night-cop came and woke me.

Editor of Muck Page,
Dear Sir,
It is with many thanks that I send
this letter to you, maker ot muck,
for the undeelred publicity given me
during the paat year. I am writing
thla letter to yon Instead of tolling
lt personally since it's tag day at
Varsity aad I havn't enough nerve
to walk about like you, without buy-
tug one.
However my name which you used
so freely on your page became quite
notorious and the publicity Anally
culminated in my belag nominated
for secretary. By some accident the
name didn't appear oa the ballot but
I doa't care I never wanted to be
secretary anyways.
Slaee this Is the last issue ot the
dear settees paper I want to appeal
to the students to say I'm not like
what you make out I never stole
sugar In Caf—anyhow not as much
aa you claimed. My name ls as I
said before Maybelle not Mabel I
think it'a hateful the way you write
about ma. Why even my Shi friend
Marge thinks it's not nice.
I will now close this sppistlle
Yours (with reservations)
She-John, what did you do with
the beauty doctor's bill?
Me—Vetoed It-fix,
Vernon—They tell sis you love
Winnie—Yes, but never mind; keep
on playing.—-Ex.
