With Manitoba's
TeamTo-night

Manitoba
For the flrst time In its history this
.University wilt on Friday evening, at
1.1&, meet the University ot Manitoba
In debate in the Auditorium,  For the
Kit two years the University of Sas-
tohfwan has sent Its team to the
DOsst. Lost year our away team
went to Alberta; but this year Manitoba sends her debaters to Vancouver and our away team goes to Saskatchewan.
When the old "Prairie Debating
League" was In existence, Manitoba
was for some yearsthe winner of the
McOowan silver trophy which is still
put up for annual competition. The
tJUlverslty of Alberta took it to Edmonton last spring and it is to be
toped H will continue its westward
■krofney after next Friday evening.
The JTisident of the evening will
tie Ml*, Max C. Wright, who will wel-
come the visiting debaters on behalf
"«f the University.
The Manitobab team consists of two
men who are well known In their
own' country for their oratorical
skill, their high level of argumentation, and their penetrating witticisms, Mr. Francis I. Ison, the leader
Of the invading team, Is a member of
fit. Johns College at Winnipeg. When
not busy debating he pursues his
itudies in fourth year Arts and
ioienee. throughout this year he
. has served as Vice-President of the
Manltoban Debating Union.
, Mr. Herbert B. West completes the
team. He Is an exceedingly able
Speaker and is in Manitoban phrase-
©logy "senior stick of our Agricultural College." So fond is he of birds
that It is rumored he is going to pay
« visit to U. B C. Hen No. 6 during
his stay in Vancouver.
The visitors will arrive Friday
morning. They will be shown over
the University Buildings and will be
entertained at a tea by the Women's
Undrgraduate Society during the
afternoon.
Meanwhile our men have not been
letting the grass grow under their
feet. Paul Murphy and Dick Yerburgh
have welded themselves into a formidable combination, and nt the try out
out on Monday afternoon the case
they presented was considered well-
nigh unbeatable.
Tbe bone of contention between
U. B. C. and Manitoba Is "Resolved
that all restrictions on voting in Canada based on race or color should be
removed."
Our away debaters, Leslie H. Brown
and Bert Bailey left Tuesday evening for Saskatchewan, where they

Co-Operation Among Canada's
Universities Is Discussed
Shidant Loaders of Feeirteen U'e Roproeontod at Montreal
Mooting.   Prat. John Oliver Sums Up Findings.
Ever alnoe the visit of the Imperial
Debating Team to Canada during the
Spring ot 1918, the question of some
form of cooperation between Canadian Universities has been under consideration. After some negotiations,
MoOili University, in conjunction with
University of Toronto, called a meeting In Montreal during the Christmas
holidays and fourteen Universities
were represented.
The flrst day was spent In a general
discussion of the subject, after hear*
Ing a splendid outline of similar student movements tn Europe from Mr.
N. A, McKensie, Professor of International Law, at the University of
Toronto, whose work on the Secretarial of the League of Nations
brought htm Into contact with the
various National Student Unions. During this discussion, several points became apparent. In the first place,
all the representatives were agreed
that any movement, which had Canadian unity as its purpose, would be of
vital use In our national life. This
was the aim toward which the Conference was working in all phases of
discussion. This conclusion led,
naturally, to a financial discussion
since the sparse population and long
distances render frequent conferences
very difficult.
Following along the lines of the
general discussion, five committees
were appointed to deal more specifically with these phases of the problem.
1.   Scope ot Federation.
8.   Finance.
3. Organisation.
4. International Relationships.
6.   Scholarships.
COMMITTEES
The whole result of tho Conference
is contained ln these reports and It is
unfortunate that they cannot be discussed ln detail, but a short abstract
of each will give some little Idea of
the nature of the organization.
The committee on the scope of the
Federation give as the general alms:
"To overcome economic and racial
barriers existing In Canada, with a
view to creating a greater national
unity"; and as particular aims, "To
promote a better understanding between the various universities in each
of the sections of Canada."
REPORTS
The finance committee evolved a
per capita system of assessment which
would entail a charge of roughly six
and one-half cents per student, which
will cover the cost of a part-time
secretary-treasurer and all expenses
ln connection with an annual conference, which is the minimum program
which will make the Federation a
reality. Even with a full-time secretary and a small staff, the per capita
charge would only amount to ten
cents.
The report of the committee on organisation was embodied ln the draft
constitution, which was approved by
the Conference. Tbe constitution provides for an executive composed of
one representative front each University, which will meet eaoh year during
the Christmas holidays. This body
shall elect, from their own number,
a president and vice-president, and
shall appoint the permanent secretary-treasurer. Their recommendations will have to be ratified by at
least ten Universities before they
shall come into effect. On the whole,
the organization Is very simple and a
definite attempt was made to prevent
the formation of a cumbersome and
useless system of co-operation.
The work of the last two commit-

tees Is intended to give a basis for
further study and research. The Con-
ferenoe fully realised the impossibility of bringing the whole scheme Into
being tor a number ot years, and
much work will yet have to be done
on the international aspects ot the
organisation as well as the question
of exchange scholarships.
In order to simplify the international relations of the Federation, the
committee recommended affiliation
with the Confederation Internationale
des Btudiants, which bears the same
relation to the various National
Unions as our Federation does to tho
constituent universities. By co-operation with, and in the C.I.E., our
efforts would be directed much more
efficiently than if the Federation cooperated at random with various societies ot more or less International
aspects,
SCHOLARSHIPS
Perhaps the most Interesting report
was that on Scholarships, The jom-
mtttee recommended that students,
to the extent of one per cent, of the
total enrollment, be granted exchange
scholarships in the third year. These
selected would have their fees remitted and an endeavor will be made
to obtain special railroad fares be>
tween universities, By this means,
it in hoped that an interchange ot
ideas will be effected which will be
another step toward the ideal of
national unity, in addition, the committee recommended the establishment of ten international scholarships, to be granted to graduates of
Canadian Universities. The question
of financing these latter scholarships
will be one of the first problems facing the Federation.
The draft constitution was adopted
by the Conference and the following
were elected pro-tern officers:
President—Mr.   L.   I.   Oreen,   ot
Bishops College.
Vice-President—M.   Le   Sage,   of
University ot Montreal.
Secretary-Treasurer—   Mr.   Percy
Davies, of University of Alberta.
When ten student bodies ratify this
constitution, the officers will assume
their responsibilities and the work of
the Federation  will commence.
The above abstract tflves a very
rough Idea of tho nature of the new
Federation, and an attempt has been
made to give an outline of the alms
and benefits to be derived from such
an undertaking. The Federation presents an opportunity for us as students to strengthen the rather slight
bonds between tbe Canadian Universities, with the hope that this co-operation will later spread to all sections
of Canadian life.

Swimming Course
The Women's Swimming Club has
made arrangements for a beginner's
swimming course under the Instruction of Norman Cox, the well-known
Varsity coach. The course will consist ot ten half-hour lessons, and the
class will be limited, so all who are
Interested are advised to get In touch
with the secretary, Mary Ross, or
Gertrude Dowsley, the president, as
soon as possible. The class will
commence Its work at Chalmer's
Tank, on Monday, January 24th, at
5.30 p.m. sharp. Those who wlah to
take this course may do so on payment of the fee of ft,00, If they do
not already belong to the club.
This Is a splendid opportunity for
any girl to learn to swim, and to en-
Joy the privileges of the University
Women's    Swimming    Club
WOMEN'S ATHLETICS
There will be a special meeting of
the Women's Athletic Association on
Wednesday, January 26th, In Room
Arta '100 at 12.15, for the purpose of
discussing the half-mile relay for
women. All women Interested ln
sport are requested to attend.
HISTORIC RACE
ON FEB. 23rd
On February Mrd, the historic Arts
'20 Relsy classic will take plaee, For
those students who have witnessed
this thrilling battle between the various years In former days It is unnecessary to mention that it ia the
outstanding event in lnter-class com*
petition, It not In Varsity athletic
circles, For the Freshman class a
few words of explanation are necessary,
The oourse is approximately 8 miles
in length and It is divided into eight
laps, varying from one-half mile to a
mile or moro in length. Each class
enters a team of eight men—one man
for each lap. Students may follow
the race lap by lap since the positions
of the various teams are announced
at the end of each lap. The battle
finishes on the main drive opposite
the administration building,
The course was changed last year,
the race being confined entirely to
Point Orey, Formerly It started at
tbe present University continuing
along Marine Drive and through the
city to our old home In Fairview,
and was witnessed by hundreds of
the general public. Should the latter
course be reverted to thus starting
the race at the old University and
finishing at the present Varsity? This
Is the question that has to be decided.
A Freshman class wtth any pep at
nil might win the race. Arts '29 won
fame last year hy copping first place—
the first Freshman class to do so for
years. Can Arts '30 repeat? There
Is a good chance for them to establish tholr athletic abilities, they
have no known men ot outstanding
ability. There is a chance for every
Freshman to make the team—new
otars are developed every year.
Freshmen! Bring your shoes and
shorts and get out on the road without delay—there is only a short
month left. Remember, February
23rd—Arts '20 Relay Classic!
Pilkington Gov't
Is Overthrown
Defeated on Motion of Censure
Another change In government has
taken place in the Student's Parliament at one of Ihe most heated sittings In lis career. A Coalition Government, headed by Messrs. White-
ley and Denis Murphy has taken the
reigns of office laid down by Premier
F. C. Pllkington, and is busy mapping
out an extensive program.
Proceedings opened with Mr. Yer-
burgh rising, and ln a dramatic speech
moving a resolution of censure upon
the Premier. A bombshell was exploded by Hon. N. Oold, Attorney General of the Government, seconding
the resolution against the leader of,
his own party. It was soon evident
that there was a deep schism in the
government party that was causing
Its destruction.
After heated debate In which unparliamentary language was attempted, the resolution was put to
vote and carried.
As this was a crisis In the government, a ten minute recess was called
until the party could decide as to Its
future actions. Mr. Premier presented his resignation to Chief Justice
Soward, acting Lieutenant Governor,
and recommended Messrs. Whlteley
and I). Murphy as his successors.
Upon the message of the Lieutenant
Governor being received, the Coalition party assumed office. Mr. Lalng
wns re-elected speaker and called the
House to order. Mr. Whltely nude
a stirring appeal for support which
resulted In several members moving
to the government side of the house.
A motion of "No confidence" was
moved by Mr. B. Carrlck and seconded by Mr 1. Keenleyslde. This resolution was lost chiefly on account of
the support afforded to the government by the Independent members.
As the situation now stands, the
government is ln a minority, and Is
forced to rely on the support of the

FINANCIAL REPORT
The Treasurer, Harold MacWilllams,
presented a financial report to council, which showed that expenses, until the etui of 1926, had been lather
heavy, and that the Council waa running on a close margin. Some Irritation was evinced by certain members upon over-expenditures of budgets, and Clubs, Societies and Classes
will have to pay closer attention ta
this matter In future.

THE ARTS'20 RELAY COURSE
Elsewhere in the issue an article on the Arta '20 relay appears
tt raises the important question: Should the race be run over last
year4! oourse or should it be changed to the original route, and be run
from the old Fairview site to the new Point Grey buildings.
We think the moment opportune for a discussion of this matter
and a final decision. We offer no criticism whatever of the Track Club,
hut we would like to urge that it run the race from Fairview to Point
' Orey. Last year's course, a somewhat circular ono, permitted students
to sea th* start and the finish; and for this reason ft had and has advantages. But the old course, or rather the old course revised, would
both permit many interested Vanoonverites to watch the progress of
the race and, more important, would preserve a tradition already
aherished. It is all very well to call tradition talk platitude, but the
Arts '80 relay was founded to establish a tradition. Whon the Uni-
versity of British Columbia has become a great educational foundation,
the running of the Arts '20 relay over the old course will havo a great
historical significance; for it will perpetuate the memory of the old
university and the founding of the new. We are inclined to believe
that the suggested change would be as much approved of by under-
graduates as it would be by graduates.
STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY
The attention of students (who are, as a body, responsible for
the conduct of all members thereof) and the Students' Council (at
present vested with power to deal with all cases of students
misdemeanour) is directed to a notice in another column, statins? the
logs (presumably by theft) from a faculty offlee of certain valuable
books.
It is the business of all students to assist the Council in tho enquiries which should be immediately instituted in regard to this
matter.

}i To tho Editor,
'X UbyBsey,
The University of B. C,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:--■
We would be very grateful If you
could find space to publish the following letter.
Having been ln charge of the In-
vhslon Dance at the Empress Hotel
on the 9th, we aro aware that It. wns
not an outstanding success from the
point of view of your students who
attended. It Is on that, account that
we should like to make the standing
of our College clear and to apologize
where necessary.
Owing to sickness on the part of
two of our Council members the tickets were not printed until four days
before the date, consequently the sale
was small and it was fully expected
that the financial end of It, for us,
would be a failure. Under normal
conditions we might have stood this
but this year we are financing two
extra teams, an important item on
our limited budget. To avoid this loss
we threw the dance open to the public, not thinking, however, that it
s would be quite so crowded. We also
omitted to provide programmes and
tbe orchestra, although the best obtainable, was poor.
The last thing we would wish to do
Is to break the friendly relation existing between your University and ourselves, and If your students will forgive the matter ln a sportsmanlike
way and realize that they have, at
their expense, helped Victoria College out of a tight, squeeze, we will
be very grateful and do our best to
see that such treatment does not
occur again.
Hoping that this will prevent any
subsequent    Ill-feeling,    and    looking
forward to renewed good will at our
invasion in February, we are,
Vours very sincerely,
Students' Council of Victoria
College,
JACK  S.  SHADBOLT,
President
Editor's Note —We take It upon
ourselves to assure the members of
Victoria College that, In the light of
the explanation contained ln the
above letter, the student body of the
University of British Columbia makes
full allowance for what were obviously difficult circumstances In connection with the Victoria Invasion, and
further to reassure them ln regard to
continuing friendly relation, about
which, from the point of view of the
University of British Columbia, there
was never any question.
LETTERS CLUB
On Tuesday evening, January 18th,
the meeting of the Letters Club was
held at the home of His Honor Justice
Murphy, 12311 Davie St. The paper
of the evening was given hy Mr.
Leslie Howlett on the much debuted
question of "What is Poetry?" At
the beginning of the paper Mr. Howlett stated that poetry was in general
a matter of personal taste, as the
question of what constitutes real
poetry has not yet been settled. The
tour criterlons of good poetry upheld
ln the paper were "perception, philosophic thought, emotion, and dramatic
effort." An exception was made in
the case of the lyric which seldom
contains any deep thought. The
paper ln general was characterized by
the Individual opinion of the, author,
but the question remained unsolved
and slightly vague. The discussion
after the conclusion of the paper was
very diversified, proving to somo extent, Mr. Hewlett's early contention
concerning personal taste.
The attendance ot the club members was not very good for the llrst
meeting tn the second term. All
members please remember that the
next meeting Is on Tuesday, February
1.
CLASSICS CLUB
The Classics Club will meet this
Saturday at R p.m. at, the homo of
Miss Edith Dwlnnell, 2019—45th Ave.

American basketball circles.
The entertainment will be the usual

be fifty cents per person. The flrst

o'clock and Washington will appear
on the floor at nine sharp.
THE WHEEL OP TIME
Where are the thoughts of yesterday,
Thought In one fleeing moment and
now gone?
Where are the minutes of the hours
Which,  gatb'ring fast, are dim so
soon 7
From whence does active Time array
The scattered moments, and whither
go theyf
Fade and crumple like the flowers?
Flung to winds, and blown upon
The masy tablets of some Angel clerk,
Who writes the story of their face?
Or are they tossed amid the surging
dark
Of Past?   Wherever they be gone,
Perchance dim Future takes them;
by him won
Again to Time's pulsating race.

HOCKEY TEAM
CITTC NO ICE
Loses By Three-quarter* of
an Inch
In the flrst game of the season,
Varsity Intermediates were out-played to the extent of an 8—) score.
Playing a strong defense, Varsity
lacked the combination of the Terminal forwards and tallied only ono*
when Rhodes sent a fast shot from
the Termlual's blue line.
Mort. Richmond was the most outstanding player ot the evening, guarding the varsity net, Mort stopped
shot after shot. Long ones and short
ones made no difference.
It is a notable fact that Varsity has
not won a hookey game for two years.
Perhaps this is hot altogether the
team's fault: more probably it is. In
the best traditions of the ordinary
sport write-ups, the usual alibi is in
order. For the benefit ot the hookey
team It is quite the thing to say that
the team needed support: that a
little college spirit was necessary to
brace up the boys: and that with a
few thousand students there, Varsity
might have scored two goals Instead
of one. For the benefits of our readers the truth must he told; Varsity
was plainly out of condition and deserved the walloping they got. This
is shown by the tact that ln the first
period they held tho Terminals to a
scoreless draw, while In the second
period they were walked over. Three
freshettes, It Is reported, attended the
game. The hockey team deserves
more than this, undoubtedly, but it
doesn't deserve any decent-sized
crowd until it gets down to work and
gets in shape for its matches.

Interesting Game
For First Soccer
Team will Tackle Nanaimo
City
When the whistle blows at Athletic Park for the kick-off timed
for 9.80 p. m., Saturday, a keenly-fought soccer game will undoubtedly follow. Nanaimo City, the league
leaders, will oppose the the rejuvenated Varsity eleven, and neither of
these teams will be satisfied with a
draw.
Nanaimo City has not lost a game
this season, and only one of tholr
games resulted in a draw. So naturally they will not lose without putting
up a strong fight for the honors. Varsity, on the other hand, have played
all the games they Intend to lose this
season, and the team has heen doing
some strenuous training lately.
Manager Liersch has been watching the Nanaimo players closely, and
owing to the keen rivalry and various
abilities of his soccer players, will not
select a team until he sees how the
Islanders .are going to lineup. Then
he will post the names of the selected
Varsity representatives on the notice
boards.
"Harry Mosher will guard the nets
for Varsity!" Suoh was the last minute news received by the Ubyssey.
Anderson, who poisoned his leg in
one of the senior tussles, is out of
the game for a time; and Mosher has
been prevailed upon to fill this vacancy.
Mosher's fame as a goal keeper is
well known. In former years he
guarded the Varsity goal, and was
one of the U. B. G. Mainland champion, Moreover, he was and Is known
throughout Canada for his remarkable
exhibitions, So great Is his fame that
three years ago he was seleoted as a
member of the Canadian All-Star
team that toured Australia.

The committee formed to discuss
the development of the University

would be chosen until the condition
of the water at various sites had
been carefully observed in different
winds and at various stages of tide.

McHOOTCH GIVES
VIEWSON "CAFW
Professor Gargle McHooch the
erudite solver of Varsity problems Is
again In our midst. This time he has
turned his weighty intellect to the
cafeteria.
"It is obvious," he said to our reporter, "that tbe present state of affairs should not continue. Look at
the great waste! Time wasted ln
lining up at the Counter. Energy
wasted ln dodging and scraping
through the crowd. Money squandered on Cafeteria lemon pie! All
this should be eliminated.
Another fault Is that the place is
not large enough. It should be expanded until It can accommodate
about one-half the men as well as the
women. At the present time, four
out of every five pie eaters are women.
I would suggest the administration
building. It is very conveniently
situated and moreover no one is ever
there between 12 and 1 o'clock. The
Aggie's piggery should be set apart
for the people who bring their lunch
Then they could throw their half
eaten sandwiches where they would
be appreciated, Instead of around the
common room, At least the men will
not object to the change from the
common room to the piggery as there
Is little difference at present.
With regard to the crowd—certain
runways between the tables should be
net apart for one way traffic. An Im
provised traffic cop could be placed
at  the intersection.
I must add that on careful Investigation that there is no truth ln
the rumor that Miss Hansford and
her assistants go out to dine. They
bring their own lunches."
