•SrgdTs arti/ Students in Home-Coming* Thanksgiving
wr^pitll'Seeontl Annual rTtnue-conuug of
I the Alumni of tho University takes
place this year on November 4, 5;
6 snd 7—tho Thanksgiving week-end.
Laat year ihe initial experiment of
Home-coming was tried and proved
such a success that further plans were
ittsde this year. Instead of confining Hie
e&lebratiou to; Vancouver, the commit--
t«e has arranged for a nunibei* of
smaller reunions wherever grnds are
gathered. Paris, London, New York,
the Universities of McGiil, Toronto.
Berkeley nnd Washington will each see
« group of grads who will 1'ettirn in
Hpirit to U.B.C.   In this provinee itself,
iii^i under  the   capable direction   of   Ab.

y**iar4Ldirihers held in,towns where the

If^l^OttVflr dnriii| Thanksgiving- week-
In the event of any group tinvin<r
beeh overlooked during the arranging
of these affairs, the committee asks that
they use their own initiative and throw
soinfe kind of party on Saturday, November f>, and then unite in a report
and reprimand for the commit tec hnv
ing overlooked them.
The programme, ns lust year, is in
the hands of a joint committee of
Alumni and students, and the results of
their efforts may be judged by the
show itself. Theatre Night will be held
in the University Auditorium on the
night of Friday, November 4, and will
be handled almost entirely by the students. In order thnt no one will expect
a production of high dramatic merit
and execution, let it be freely stated
that the programme is decidedly ".skittish." The august Council, the still
more august Faculty and all the dignitaries of the University will be presented in a new light. Even Congregation, that solemn and awful function,
will be shown to the undergrads that
they may know the goal toward which
, they are struggling.
The rugby game will see the Varsity
team in play for the first time this
season. Unfortunately our traditional
oueiny, the Vancouver Hep., will not be

ing the Vancouver basketball season
will be opened at the Normal Gymnasium where the grads will play the
Varsity. After last year's battle, the
grads should moke the Varsity realize
that extreme youth is not everything.
After the game the usual Basketball
Dance will be held in the gymnasium.
The more recent graduates will remember these as second only to the Frosh
Reception. If you have never been
before, go for the experience; if you
have been, go again and recapture tht-
spirit of Varsity life or find out if you
can buck a crowd as well as you did.
On Sunday morning a church service will be held in St. Mark's church
when the Rev. Sovereign will deliver
the sermon. The Board of Governors
aud the .Senate will attend. An effort
is being made to make this u University service.
On Monday, Thanksgiving Day,  Ihe
*' V*
University building*',.will be open In
the afternoon. An invitation is being
extended to the general public as well
as the graduates. Student guides will
he in each building. Many changes
have taken place, nt the site since last
year and the buildings hove a proper
setting of trees, shrubberies nnd lnwmt.
The Library, our "show" building, has
been adorned with a semi-classical
goldfish pool which at present boasts
two water-lilies but, unfortunately, no
goldfish. The collection of paintings
by John Innes, depicting some of the
incidents of the early days of British
Columbia, which are a permanent loan
from the Hudson's Bay Company to
the University, are hung iu the read-
ing-room of the library and the Bennett
collection has been properly established and is now under the careful eye, ,
of "Birr Tansley.
During the afternoon, the two totem
poles which have been given by a prominent citizen will be formally presented
atul Chief of the   Musqucam  Reserve
will show the symbolism of the totems.
As nn inducement to those of a mundane and sternly practical frame of
mind, it is announced that lea may bo
served duriiur the afternoon, but pending ii decision from tlie Cafeteria authorities no definite statement can be
given out.
The students will be out in force and
we expect a large representative group
of graduates. Come and see the University again in the company of those
of your class. You will then be hi the
comfortable position of being able to
compare the present undergrads with
those of your own term, Whether the
comparison will he favorable to your
own class or not depends entirely on
whether you are a normal grad.
If you come from Fairview, come
and see the Promised Land that you
helped to reach and if you are a more
recent graduate, come and see the
reality of that promise which has
emerged from two hectic years of read-
just unlit at the new site. But whatever year you mny be, or whatever
your motive, eonu* and enjoy yourself
and meet the people you used to know.
Remember the dates—November 4,
5, ti and 7 -Thanksgiving week-end.

eaitniTii fa<^iK--u,
At the last general meeting of tho Alumni Association much
healthy criticism was levelled at a policy—or lack of policy—
of the Association. Wo wero urged to give more consideration
to the absent members. It was pointed ont that, Although over
fifty per cent of our members live out of tho City of Vancouver,
practically all our attention was devoted to local affairs, social
snd otherwise. The only attention given to non-resident members was towards the collection of foes and the bulletin and
directory service. The bulletins were irrogulsr nnd brief, and
carried no account of our minutes nor of the disposal of membership fees.
The meeting decided that the criticism wag justified. This
year we shall eater to the out-of-town members through our
Publicity Department. Wo are attempting a programme that
may be too ambitious, but wo depend on our full membership
to assist us, We have gradually increased the slue of the
bulletin (Ubysseygrad) from one to four pages and wo intend
t to publish as many numbers as our finances will permit. The
cost of printing and mailing a paper of this sixe is high, and wo
shall need your support. Much of our spaoo shall be devoted to
personal items since our eritios consider them of the most
interest. Any such items wM bo received with thanks. Wo
cordially invite constructive criticism oither of the paper or
of the Association, and shall open a correspondence column in
our next number.
In regard to the general policy of tho Association there is
little to say. We have but ono idea—-to assist the University.
We try to do this by keeping in touch with tho students, the
Faculty, Senate, and Board of Governors. We have taken part
in various .student movements and have (insisted them in raising
money for worthy purposes. Our representatives on the Senate
endeavor to bring the student nnd Alumni ideas hefore (hat
body. Our Graduates on the Faculty have our interests at heart.
It is very necessary, however, that all delegates and representatives of our Association have the hacking of the entire graduate membership. Tho secondary object, then, is to hold our
Society together. Wo hope to do this through our publicity
department and by moans of meetings and social gatherings
The latter functions are practically self-supporting, and the
criticism that funds collected
from non - resident members
are devoted to entertaining
local members is without
Elsewhere in this issue
will be found work already
planned for the season. Your
co-operation will make our efforts a sucoess.
Once more we dun you for
fees, but hope that this tirab
there will be a more satisfactory return for your investment.
Fees may be paid to the treasurer, Lyle Atkinson. Correspond-
once and news items tor thla

The annual meeting of the
Alumni Association was held
ou May 18, 1927, in the Blue
Room of tho Hotel Vaucouver.
The Treasurer's report,
showing a balance of $164.52,
was reported.
Mr. Gordon Scott presented
the report of the Publication
Committee, stressing the fact
that insufficient attention waa
being given to the out-of-town
members of the Society. He
pointed out that only through
the bulletin nnd directory
could the Executive hold the
interest of theae members.   Mr.

object of the Association is to
collect historical data and interesting relics pertaining to

vincc, and with this end in
view representatives ure being
appointed in the larger cities
and towns. An advisory committee has been formed, consisting of prominent citizens,
who have always taken a great
interest, not only in the history
of the province, but also in the
University itself. With their
guidance the Association hopes
to canvas older residents of
this country and obtain from
them such particulars of the
early history of the province as
are not to be found elsewhere.
It is believed that a considerable amount of information
pertaining to Ihe actual experiences of these old-timers will
lie obtained, and that still further light will thus be thrown
on the growth of the province.
The Association has obtained
two ancient totem poles from
the Musi'iieam Indian Reserve
in Point Grey. These have
been restored, and it is intended that they be presented
to the University during Homecoming Week in November.
Great credit is due Mr. Sherwood Lett, President of the
Alurajni Association, for his

interesting old relics.

of NaH804 in their hot milk at night,   Capt. Tupper believes that there
are no better pig-skin chasers on the

and If the manner In which Kid Noble

any sign of superiority we would advise Mr, Tupper to administer about
two doaes of his pet exterminator

A further attraction to this game Is
to make Its appearance In the form

for 2:30 at the Point and promises to
be a battle royal. It will be proceeded
by a high school final which will aet

Tickets for this game are now on sale

In connection with the forthcoming

Parliament Discusses
Topics of "Kid."
A very lively meeting of the atudenta' Parliament was held at 8
O'clock on Wednesday afternoon, Oct.
16th. There was a good turn-out and
several visitors in the gallery.
the flrst matter tor discussion had
to do v|th the Mens* and Womens'
Llterarjr Societies. Tbe two executives
have of late been working on the idea
ot an amalgamation of the two societies. It was moved and seconded that
they merge under a joint executive.
Another suggestion of the executives was that the Student Parliament
beheld ever*/ other week, and that the
Intervening Wednesday be made a
Literary Sooiety meeting. This suggestion was passed and left to be
acted upon by the executive.
Mr. N. Abramson, the honorable
member from Revelstoke, was elected
as Clerk of the House.
A motion was brought np by Hon.
Orahfiffl Trom Graham Island and
seconded by the member from Pentlcton. It read as follows: "Resolved
that no person will be admitted as an
Undergraduate into this University
unless he or she has attained the
mental, physical, and chronological
age of sixteen years."
'With great enthusiasm the House
discussed, and criticized this motion.
Hon. F. C. Pllkington aald that
eeveral "kids" were allowed into University. He suggested that youngsters, mentally and physically under
the age of sixteen, should do outdoor
work for a year or two before beginning concentrated study. One member pointed out that often the greatest minds of past days were weaklings
and physically unfit. A lady member
added, that by enforcing such a rule,
we would deprive many clever young
people, of a good chance of enriching
their minds.
Should we allow students (?) of 17,
with a mental age of 12 and a physical
age of say 13 Into our Universities?
. One member maintained that, if we
allowed mere children into our University, we would soon bave to Bpoon-
feed our freshmen in tho cafeteria,
and guide them around the campus.
Chronological age is of little importance and physical age has very little
effect on mental age. What is more
important is the social age. But how
can we measure mental and physical
ages? As the leader ot the Opposition
explained, there are standardized intelligence tests and measurement,
weight and Btrength tables which
enable the authorities to find the correct age of the individual.
Mr. Underbill, honourable member
from Union Bay, stated that as we
become older our minds and bodies
shrink. This idea was exploded, for
good judgment is highest in men of
ages between forty and sixty.
After an hours' enthusiastic debato
the House adjourned.
A snake parade is to be held on
Saturday at two o'clock from Gamble
Orounds to Brockton Point, Everybody out! Bring any "musical" Instruments that are suitable for the occasion and any Jan caps or slickers that
may be available. Appropriate signs
will be greatly appreciated by all.
Let's get the crowd interested In
our Rugby games, let's support our
own teams, and, Incidentally, lets

Council Discusses
Various Problems
At a mooting of the Students'
Council on Monday it was deolded
that poppies wll! be sold at the University on Armistice day. These poppies have always been sold on the olty
streets, but this year students will
have the opportunity of buying them
on the campus. The University will
vote on the disposition of the money
collected so It Is hoped that everyone
will wear a poppy on this day. Many
suggestions were offered regarding
the program that will be carried out
In commemoration of the Armistice.
These will be brought forward at a
meeting of tho Canadian Legion by
the two University delegates, Les.
Brown and Bill Masterson. The customary two minute silence will be observed, but the rest ot tbe ceremony
has yet to be arranged.
It was announced that the Idaho-
U.B.C. debate will be held on Wednesday, November 30.
The Canadian Rugby Club made
application to have a game on the
Home-coming week-end programme.
It was decided that since one against
Bdmonton is to be held on Saturday,
the Canadian Rugby team will play
Vancouver on Monday, November 7.
The question of the Students' Court
was discussed and the proposed constitution read. Council hopes to have
this court, which will try all student
offenders, in operation very shortly.

Secretary of Rhodes Trust
Gives Address to Student Body
Mr. Phillip Kerr Gives Interesting Talk to Small
Gathering on Rhodes' Foundation
"In his will, Cecil Rhodes expressed the hope that his soholars would, Is
later experience, esteem the performance ot publlo duties as their tilghett
aim In life." Using this statement as a key, Mr. Phillip Kerr, Secretary of. the
Rhodes Scholarship Trout, outlined the possibilities and literal sold mine that
Is latent tn the Rhodes Scholarship, when addressing an enthusiastic eudlettoa
ln the auditorium on Wednesday noon.
Introducing the speaker, Lrslie Brown mentioned the faot that ths
RhodeB Scholarship should be at vital Importance to people ot British
Columbia, especially as within .he next month from this university, thi
Rhodes scholar who Is to represent the province tor the year will be selected.
Mr. Kerr, before dealing wita the -tsstmBE-assaTata-Bna^
advantages of this scholarship, point*
ed out its one blemish; that tail mine
of opportunity is not u.~z to women,
—only men are eligible at present.
This detect, however, Is one ot quantity rather than quality, as the speaker is of tbe opinion that in the near
future there will be an equivalent
scholarship tor women.
In order that his audience should
know the underlying principles of the
Rhodes Scholarship, Mr. Kerr devoted
some time to the history of the
founder's life. He told how this self-
made man had gone to Natal for his
health when still a boy, and took up
farming. Soon after his arrival great
diamond discoveries were made in
South Africa, and the young man,
realizing that here was opportunity,
gave up his farm and hastened to the
mining camps.
As a result ot his industry and ability he became a predominant figure,
and in less than twelve years attained
the position ot chairman of the board
controlling the country's diamond Industry. He was subsequently largely
responsible for organizing the diamond industry of the world."
"But the remarkable fact," continued Mr. Kerr, "is that on his own
initiative he returned to England and
spent three years at the University
of Oxford, in spite of his business
interests and the many obstacles he
had to overcome." This goes to show
what Cecil Rhodes thought ot a university education.
In a short time Rhodes became the
Prime Minister of Cape Colony, and
founded many of the prevailing Ideas
In tho government of South Africa today. He was perhaps the first leading South African that realized the
possibilities of the vast hinterland,
and worked hard for the control of
Central Africa by Cape Colony. As
a result the great province of Rhodesia is a monument to hla name. Ho
left his fortune of approximately
seventeen millions of dollars, to be
used for the advancement of education. In accord with certain specifications regarding this endowment his
fortune was left for the progress and
betterment of the world,
Mr. Kerr went on to point out, how,
in the opinion of Cecil Rhodes, the
destiny of the world rested to a large
extent ln the hands ot the English
speaking peoples and the Germans;
hence Mr. Rhodes decided that his
fortune should be used so that the
most suited individuals of these
peoples would be afforded the best
possible opportunity of furthering the
interests of humanity.
"Democracy has its advantages,"
said the speaker, "but it also has disadvantages. No democracy can travel
and as a result one country as a whole
cannot understand another. But lt
the right sort of people receive a
broad education they can do much to
further good will among nations. Thia,
then, is the object of the Rhodes
Scholarship, as outlined by the secretary of the Trust.
There are 200 Rhodes scholars each
your. The fact that these representatives trom differeut parts of the world
come In contact with one another Is
In Itself a broadening factor. The
scholarship carries with it $2,000 por
year for three years. Bach scholar
spends six months of the year at Oxford, and six months tn travelling aud
studying anywhere In Europe. In
the words of Mr. Kerr, "the Individual
Is left to dig about In the gold mine
of Oxford aud Europe."
ln Mr. Rhodes' opinion the man best
suited for the work should be ac all-
(Continued on Page 4)
On Monday last the final tryout wag
held to plok the Intercollegiate debaters for the coming year. The too*
cessful candidates were: O. W.
Brazier, Harry Freeman, Lionel Laint,'
Orevllle Rowland, Richard Xerbursh,
and David Wad linger. Of these Lionel
Lalng, Orevllle Rowland and Richard
Yerburgh took part In InterwUejeJat*
debates last year, and David WStt>
linger won last year'a oratorical contest.
To this number are added four International debaters of previous years,
W. Masterson, D. Telford, D. Murphy
and P. Murphy. These are U. B. 0.'g
standard bearers ln the field of forensic effort this year and the measure
of their success will depend to no
small degree on the support Stven
them by the student body.
This term U. B. C. will debate
against two colleges to the south,
Idaho and Montana. Id'iho will send
a team here about November 30 and
U. B. C. will send a team to Montana
about the same time.
Next term nearly all forensic effort*
will be directed against Canadian
Colleges. In accordance with the
rules of the Western Canadian Debit*
ing League a team will be sent to
Manitoba while U. B. C. will entertain
at home a team from Saskatchewan.
Finally ln February the most import*
ant debate of the year will take place
when U. B. C. meets a team from the
University of Dalhousle.
Altogether the debating schedule
for this year should evoke some
lively encounters ln as much as our
opponents will come from Institutions
which have established formidable
names in the field of debating. It is
to be hoped that the students of this
university will cooperate with the
debaters in upholding the dignity ot
this college

Last year th© subject of Debates was one which drew forth some
oomment from the Student Body. The students were confused concerning the organization of the debates. The Debates Manager was
Siaaatisfled with the support given to the debaters. There may have
SSli reason for questioning on both sides, we do not deny it, but
Judging from the reforms which are in progress at present, the
Studenta this year should have much less subject for criticism.
Not only will the combined efforts of the Men's and Women's
Literary Societies prove beneficial to debaters but also the co-operation of the president of the L.S.D., the debates manager nnd a Faculty
Advisory Board should improve the standard and increase the in-
tepest In debating at U. B. C. This year there will probably be fewer
debates but what there is will be of the best and will be given every
possible publicity. A Debates Board will control and organize all
events. The merits of the speakers in the Literary Societies and
'minor debates will be noted, and thus, the best material for major
events should be secured.
"We are pleased that such reforms have taken place in so Important
v A division of college activities. We hope this organization will con-
tlmue as it has begun, that its innovation will please the students and
that they will demonstrate their satisfaction by turning out well at
This is the second^ time this year that we have felt called upon
to expostulate vigorously with the student body on tho matter of
courtesy. On Wednesday Mr. Kerr was speaking to a small group
Of interested students in the auditorium. During the whole of his
Speech there wns a continual uproar in the hall,—and this despite
the fact that there was a sign in the hall requesting silence. Nor
Was this all. Many people went so far as to open the curtains and
peer in to satisfy idle curiosity. Small wonder, then, if a visitor
Should carry away with him the impression that we buve a student
body of untutored barburians.
livery year at the beginning of the term we have a strong campaign for the wearing of gowns. Every year too the idea simmers
down without having produced any visible effect. Students
individually and collectively agree that the wearing of the gown is
a good thing—a remnant of the English tradition still left in us. But
students individually and collectively do not wear them—proof positive
of the strong force of organized inertia which is permeating our tradition.
Now, whether the gown is a good thing or not is a matter of dispute. But certainly something should be done definitely. Either let
the matter drop ent rely and cease the fill nous talk or get gowns and
wear them. The women of the upper years were requested to wear
them for the first two weeks—few could comply. There were no gowns
to be obtained, nor did tbe class executive—whose duty it is to look
after that—do anything. In fact nothing has been done yet. It is
time then for something to be done. As for the student body for whom
gowns in the abstract have all the attraction of first class marks in
the abstract, it is time they made the weak flesh comply with the
( demands of the willing spirit, or else came out in the open to reeog-
nfce gowns for what they are—untidy nuisances.
Editor of the UbyBsey,
Dear Madam:
I would like to draw attention to
some Of the advantages of discussing
politics ln the "Ubyssey."
Universities as a whole are supposed to be the centre of culture,
politically as well as otherwise.
Throughout the countries of Europe,
in particular, students are leaders of
liberal thought, aud although they
may not be a force in practical politics, they, nevertheless, come in contact with the affairs, not only of their
own country, but of the world as n
whole. It is an unfortunate defflclency
of Universities in the New World that
they have divorced themselves from
this field or activity.
There is a certain so-called danger
In discussing politics which 1 believe
la over rated. It would not be necessary to deal with party politics, but
discuss questions affecting the province, the Dominion, and the world at
Students could submit their views
in articles which would provoke further articles.
Eventually wo might come to have
a better realisation of those problems
which are pressing for solution and,
ln the future, our value as cltlsens
would be greatly enhanced,
At any rate why not try the experiment? We admit our Ignorance, but
why continue in that state? The next
step Is to And means to enlighten ourselves, and I venture to say that this
will greatly help us to attain that
Ootober 26, 1927.
Editor, "The Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
Through the medium of your paper
I should like to reply to a letter which
appeared In the issue of October 25.
In this letter tbe writer, apparently
Ignorant ot the faot that Vancouver
possesses three newspapers, suggests
that "The Ubyssey" become a pur-
veyor of seoond-hand political newa.
She goes on to state that she is
quite aware that the "Ubyssey" would
be unable to give efficient service in
this line, but suggests that something
might be done "ln the way ot picking
out two or three of the most Important events of the week and printing
them," evidently as a variety of preparatory reading for the current
event hour ln History 1. Now I submit that since the "Ubyssey" is a
paper of college activities it should
be kept a paper ot college activities,
and not be allowed to degenerate into
a reading course for History 1.
Furthermore, any Freshman, or-ette,
who Is too moronic to understand the
"most important events of the week"
as displayed In the columns of tho
"Dally Province," "Star," "Sun," or
even our friend the "Point Grey Claz-
ette," will certainly be unable to
garner any material, of any History
1. value from the same news, published, less efficiently, In the "Ubyssey."
In conclusion, t should like to ask
what ciirthly object would he attained
by adding to the already heavy duties
of tlie "I'hyssey" Htaff by making
them compile a "column of the most
important, political news Items culled
from tht- daily papers." Tlie daily
papers are available to all, why not
do our own culling

The Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam;
I should like to heartily endorse the
sentiment expressed ln your first editorial of last Issue, especially the last
part thereof, namely the formation of
an O.T.C.
Whether such an organization bo for
aviation training or ordinary military
training Is not of vast importance, but
the principle lies in the establishment
of such a Corps. We claim to love
peace and must therefore learn how
to handle arms In order to protect the
"Pax Britannlcn."
The wars of the future are almost
sure to be wars of the air, and lt is
our duty to be prepurod to defend our
country In the case of such emergency. This rnn best be brought
about, ln my opinion, by the organization of an O.T.C, perhaps with two
branches, one to study aeronautics,
tho other on the usual military lines.
Now Is tlio opportunity for the U.B.C.
to redeem Itself from the stigma
which Is attached to It by the rejection nf the military training proposals
Yours In the cause of Peace,
of the Oovernment a fow years ago.

No. a—The L. 8. D, Room
To the right of the bookstore a flight
of stairs leads up to the L. S. D. aud
Students' Council Rooms,
In the centre of the first of these
rooms Is a large table upon which
may be seen all the articles missing
rrom the Pub-office, Besides thet.e,
are Innumerable paint pots used by
the propagandists of the varsity olubs.
The excessive seal of these cent lumen has been devoted to giving Ihe
table lop a most beautiful mosaic effect In brilliant colours, Against the
south wall gapes a tall cupboard; Inside this one may Bee countless varieties of Junk, mostly odds and ends of
athletic equipment. Here also la a
reserve supply of note paper, maintained for the benefit of Ubyssey reporters,
On the opposite side of the room
is a desk whioh is used as an ornament and to give a business filke appearance to the apartment.
In this room the guide usually tells
the tourists a grisly story of a chess
fiend who tried to canvass for members among the savants of the L.S.D.
"X" marks the spot where the body
was found.
No. *—The Students' Council Room.
The Inquisitive student next enters
the Students' Council Room, whioh is
found to the right of the L. S. D.
apartment. This haunt ot the mighty
is a most luxuriously furnished salon
—with actual curtains on its windows!
In the centre of the room, hidden
under a wagon load of papers, applications for rooms and frat. notices, Is
the Table at which the Council sits
to guide the destiny of the University,
and to decide such mighty problems as Canada's policy in international arbitration and the sealing arrangements ln the Cafeteria.
In the northeast corner of the apart-
nent is the most useful and popular
piece of furniture in the University.
It Is nothing less than the file containing Information about every student and giving the telephone number
of every girl at tho University.
The tourist seldom lingers long In
this room, as he Is constantly under
the basilisk glare of councillors who
wish to slumber undisturbed.
After   escaping   from   the   Council
Room, the surviving tourists are directed to an interesting suite of apartments to the rear of the stage.
No. 7.   Back 8tage
Passing along the cement-covered
courtyard, the battleground of many
Arts-Science fights, the tourist reenters the building by means of a
small door near the south end. Inside, two flights of stairs are seen, one
leading to the Players' Club rooms
and the other to the back of the stage.
Aftei listening cautiously the guide
usually ascends the first of these
flights and exhibits the palatial room
hi the awcstrlclfen beholders. The
pliue Is elaborately furnished with curtains, carpets and armchairs, almost
as sumptuous as the Women's Common Itoom. On tho walls are pictures
of flayers' Club members and also

It is open only to the select few who
have undergone the Players' Club Initiation. The 365th day la the Homecoming Night. Then custom Is set
aside and the place becomes Infested
with Egyptian ballet dancers, apaches
and other nameless beings. It takes
the rest of the year for tho delicate
sensibilities of the Players' Club to
recover from this degradation, The
visit of the sightseer to this room is
made as short as possible for fear of
a member returning unexpectedly and
discovering the rabble In his sanctum
Once an Aggie Freshman Intruded
here and asked If he could buy a
packet or Players Navy Cut. X marks
the spot where body was found.
Allowing his charges only a hasty
glance around, the guide hurries them
down and on to the back stage.
Here are many objects of unique
Interest. To the right is the rope
governing the asbestos rurlaln so
popular In pep meet lugs, Far overhead Is a platform from which the
drop scenes are regulated. Just before the Initiation hall' a doseii Frosh
were found hiding there ami were severely niiiuleil. The Upper Years are
thinking of setting up a brinue tablet io commemorate the event.
Against the east wall Is the switch-
hoard cunt rolling Ihe lighting of ihe
stHge. To prevent monkeying with
the lights It Is surrounded wilh a metal cage, forcing rurluutt students lo
find long sticks to turn on the lights
On ihe opposite side of thu stage are
several looms, but they are hardly
worth visiting as they are used by
the Players' Club for storing useless
Impedimenta such as worn-out. props
and old wood.

Noble Beats Mayers
In Feature Game
The first upset was occasioned Wednesday ln the men's singles, when
Willy Mayers suffered defeat at the
handi of R. Noble. The score was
S—8, 1—«, 9~-7. Noble played one of
the greatest games of the tourney,
thus fir, and after winning the flrst
set, «—8, and dropping the second,
1—«, exhibited a steadiness and speed
In the third which carried him to victory,
With Mayers eliminated, there now
remains much doubt as to the ultimate victor. Should Noble keep up
the same form and speed as he has
Saoently shown, there Is muoh possl-
lllty of the orown going to him. Mow-
ever, with such men as Berto, Yollaud,
Brooks. Halley, Wilson and Stevenson still in the running, he should
have some interesting and rather dangerous competition.
Miss R. Tingley and Hugh Orant defeated Mhu M. Oreig and R. Noble,
In in exciting match on Tuesday.
Oreig and Noble took the flrst set.
•—f, and dropped the laat two, 6—3,
•—4.   Both men displayed some faat
f'tces, and Oreig and Noble found
eulty In returning Grant's frequent
hard forehand drives. Both Miss
Tingley and Miss Oreig gave their
partners strong and constant support,
and though Miss Oreig waa rather less
steady than usual, she thrilled the onlookers many times with some fast
and neat tennis.
The other events of the tournament
ire progressing   steadily, and   with
!»od weather conditions, the finals
hould be played about next Wednesday.

Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:—Might 1 draw your
attention to a letter appearing In
Tuesday's Ubyssey which, ln view of
the Inaccuracies, should not be left
Unanswered. 1 refer to the letter
signed by "Another Chess Hound."
in the third paragraph appears the
following:   "the Philosophy Club was
Srmed less than a month ago." For
e benefit of this anonymous contributor let me point out that this Is
not the case, as the Philosophy Discussion Club was formed at a meeting held In April before the University
Closed last term.
. In thi same paragraph Is found this
comment: "but the Chess Club after
a seven months' fight Is now merely
accepted "on probation," while the
Philosophy Club at Its first request
waa fully accepted." The implication
contained in these lines should not
remain unchallenged. Every student
Should know the procedure followed
to gain recognition under the L.S.D.
The Philosiphy Club, like any other
organisation desiring recognition, presented its constitution to the L.S.D
executive with the request for admission, That body tn its wisdom received the request favorably and the
Philosophy Discussion Club became a
reoognised club of the University.
The request or the Chess Club should
stand upon its merits, and I fall to
see why the Chess Hounds should
bring the Philosophy Club into their
quarrels  with  the  L.S.D.
May I suggest, Madam, that in future no letter be published ln your
columns that does not. hear the nlir-
nature of the writer? Hiding behind
a "nom de plume" is a cowardly method of attack.
Yours truly,
October 26th, 1.927.
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Re your request for criticism, may
I make a few comments on the policy
and subject matter of the "Ubyssey."
In the flrst place, I think that you
would be making a mistake were you
to act on the suggestion of one ot your
correspondents, who suggested Including political news in your columns. I
do not think that you can spare any
space in your paper for such news.
The field is adequately covered In the
daily papers. One of the professors of
the History Department at present
writes a series of articles ln the morning paper which will be found suitable
for the purpose suggested by your
correspondent. I am aware that current news la carried by papers south
of the line, but these papers are issued
dally and are ot newspaper atse and
thu* fully capable ot handling the
news without crowding out their own
news which is not featured iu the
downtown dallies.
Secondly your editorials of October
28th caught my eye. The first entitled
"Up in the Air" could not have been
more apatly named—it was. lt looked
too much like a space filler. The
second, entitled "The Function of
Clubs" was very good—we need such
a reminder every now and then.
Thirdly, the cynical wit ot the
author of the Junior Tea write-up Is
misplaced. A class tea Is not deserving of seven inches on the front page
even though entertainingly written.
Varsity Golfers
Plan Matches
Over seventy-five enthusiasts were
on hand at the first meeting this year
of the U. B. C. Oolf Club, on Monday
noon. Reg. Wilson, last year's popular president, was re-elected and announced that membership In the olub
would be open to women this year.
Dorothy Kennedy was elected vice-
president, and Brnle Bull chosen as
secretary-treasurer. Plans were drawn
up for two events to take place immediately—a mixed foursome tournament and a student-faoulty match.
Helen Matheson and Oordon Baker
were named as a committee to take
charge of the first tourney, entries for
which are now open. Ronny McKay
and Ralph Brown form the committee
to arrange the tussle with the profs.
Professor Knapp gave an interesting account of a new golf course to
be constructed on University Hill
soon, which will be open to U. B. C.
students at reduced rates. This feature, the executive figure, will gIVe the
Royal and Ancient game a big boost
at this college. The courso will be
the home course of the U. B. C. club,
and it la hoped that matohes will be
arranged with Bonte ot the city clubs.
Varsity's chancea of avenging tholr
defeat at Victoria in laat year's Invasion, look very bright. There are lots
of small-handicap men back, including Ted McEwan, last year's champion, Jaok Richardson, Ronny McKay,
Ralph Browu, Reg. Wilson, Oord.
Baker, and others. Among the new
talent la Malcolm McKay, champion
driver of Shaughnessy Club, and at
one time Junior city champion. There
are also several freshmen wearing
plus fours, and It Is hoped that some
ot thein can go around in under 100.
A ladles' match may be pulled oft
at the Invasion this year, Judging from
the enthusiasm displayed by certain
female addicts. Several co-eds, including Helen Matheson, Dot Kennedy
and Esther Eddy, can shoot a mean
round of gol-uff, so Varsity should do
well If this event comes off.
On Saturday, the Intermediate boys
clash with the Meralomas "A" at
Brockton Point. The Meralomas are
something of a terror, but our warriors have been rehearsing for the
coming fracas out on the oval and
are confident of success. "Hard tackling will do the trick," says Coach
Casey Casselman. Right now, the
boys stand with three wins and one
countered against them.
From the practice the line-up will
look something like this:
McLuckle, James, Wolfe-Merton,
Wood, Ford, Baker, Horton, Hodg-
klns, Oaltskell, Leek, Heaver, Pllkington, Brown, Shlels, Maddigan.

Yours truly,
The varloua organisations ot the
Women's Athletic Association have
practically all received a good start
and are being supported enthusiastically.
The Women's Basketball Club is
planning to enter two teams in the
Vancouver and District league, one ln
the senior "A" division and one ln the
Senior "B." Both these teama are
expected to show decided Improve*
ment on those In the past. Under the
able coaching ot Mr. Arnold Henderson and Miss Doris Shorney they plan
to field a fast aenlor "A" team. Among
tho strongest ot last year's players
are Claire Menton, Thelma Mahon and
Torohy Bailey. There are also several
experienced players among the Freshettes, such as Rettie Tingley, Jean
Whyte, and Martha Ogar. The flrst
game will take place on November 6th
at the Normal Oym. as part of the
Homecoming Week programme,
The plans of the Swimming Club
are rather Indefinite, ae they do not
plan to hold any meets until the
spring team. However, the girls are
training hard and practices are being
held regularly every week. Those of
last year's women who are expected
to make the team are Nellie Mellesh,
Mamie Moloney, Eleanor Gordon, and
Betty Whiteside, while there are
several real stars in Arts '82, suoh as
Rettie Tingley, Marlon Sangster, and
Betty Buchram.
The Hookey Club has started oft
very well holding three practices a
week with Mrs. Benlng and Dr. Wy-
man as coaohes. They are fielding
two teams which are playing against
tho various high schools,
Tennis and Badminton are receiving a great deal ot support. The
tennis tournament is now in progress
and there are a number of very good
players taking part. Unfortunately
this year we were unable to send a
team to the Western Intercollegiate
meet. Badminton Club has started Us
regular winter programme of tournaments with a very large number of
people taking part.
The Oymnaalum Club has started
Us programme under Miss Moore of
the Y. W. C. A. and has a regular
attendance oi about forty women.
At tho present time the Track Club
1b rather inactive aa it has not been
decided if the womon will take part
in the indoor inter-class meet on
November 16.
Mr, Kerr's Address

round man, one who possesses qualities which would enable hfm to make
the best use of the knowledge he
gained. The Rhodes scholar must
have not only intellectual ability, but
also moral qualities. He must show
evidence of leadership and take an
interest in his fellow men. He must
be a good sportsman, and one who
will "play the game." He should be
of sound physique, and have a good
imagination to enable him to take advantage of any opportunities that may
occur. If the scholars are well-
selocted aiong these lines lt will be a
great step towards a broader minded
world, and this In turn will be a great
step towards; world peace.
Mr. Kerr then outlined some of the
groat problems that face tho world today. He pointed out how the Great
war had created a new world, wherein the various nations had to adjust
themselves to their new positions. The
United States was finding out that
she could not ignore world affairs,
while the old British Empire is now
a commonwealth of nations. Then
the League of Nations, perhaps the
first reasonably effective step ever
taken to prevent wars, is a force
which has come to stay. These are
just a few of the problems that must
be solved by the intelligent educated
people of the world.
In concluding his address, Mr. Kerr
repeated his plea, that Rhodes scholars should esteem the performance of
public duties as their highest aim in

When Varsity meets Victoria, to
play the return game on Saturday at
Athletic Park, there are going to be
big thlnga doing. The "Blue and Oold"
representatives are prepared to "do
or die" and, aa It happens, no death;
are expected. From the looka of
thlnga this game Is going to be the
semi-final. Varsity is one win ahead
of Viotorla and very much higher in
percentage. No other team In the
league can boast of having yet lost
any games, and it ia hoped that thla
enviable record will be carried
throughout the series.
According to Max Cameron, president of the Canadian Rugby Club, the
team which Varsity puts In the field
to-morrow Is to be a stronger machine
than the one which vanquished West/
minster last week. Johnnie Currle is
to be uack at the helm, and Nell Wat-
sou and Roas Jackson will oooupy
their accustomed places In the tine.
Cokie Shields, experienced In Soccer and English Rugby, and not a
stranger to Canadian Pugby, will
make his debut in the coming assault.
As a kicker, he will no doubt make
himself known as a Babe Ruth of the
pigskin, Campbell Duncan, another
bacltfleldor, after having been laid off
for several games owing to injuries,
will do his part in giving Victoria "a
hot time in the old town" to-morrow,
Then there 1b Cece Helmer, also in
the kioking department. His brilliant
punting.in the game with the Royals
last Saturday almost "flabbergasted"
the visitors, and we hope that his boot
with the ten new nicks In It is.in
trim to assist in entertaining the Victorians.
In the meantime the boys are undergoing the usual grind at the practice
every morning. Besides this they are
meeting together every lunch hour at
the Theological College, where their
meals are served, and afterwards signal practices are held, In the evenings
chalk talks are being attended by
every man on the team, and valuable
suggestions are being given. Such a
programme cannot help but put the
tight spirit Into each player, thereby
insuring good chances for Varsty to
cop the championship.
Apart from this, Saturday's game
Is going to be very worthwhile seeing.
Some good snappy action is expected
and better ball handling than usual is
promised. It will not be wasted time
to turn out and support the team tomorrow.

Whiat, my dear I
There's a goblin lean
With a ghostly spear.
There's a akel-e-ton.
The hind that grins.
Like a cham-pi-on,
When you kick his shins.
There's a cat that crows,
And an owl that don't,
There's a witch that knows.
But tell she won't.
And lots more things,
With strings and wings,
Cut-outs and Gut-ups galore,
All for you at GEHRKE'S

Looking For.
