First Performance of Christinas
Plays Attracts Large Audience
Tho dreaded "H.A.C." degree held no terrors for the crowd of students
who poured Into the auditorium lust night to witness the initial performance
of tho Christmas Plays. For three solid hours exams were entirely forgotten,
while the Players' Cluh entertained the audience. As usual the four various
one-act plays were well-chosen, well-acted, and suitably directed. Members
of the University Musical Society contributed to the entertainment, and
provided the necessary relaxation between the four one-act plays.
The first on the program waa "Tho Romance ot tho Willow Pattern," a
Chinese fantasy. The play opened with a prologue showing Koeng-See
(Bthelwyn Dee) and Chang (1)111 Plommer) In the glorious ethereal heaven,
with all its gorgeous lighting effects. Ot course the audience was amazed
to see them there, and thus the Interest is at once aroused. After muoh
elaborate bowing and exchanging of
compliments, these two well-known
lovers return to the depths ol the
earth, and show the audience how
they reached Heaven.
They are assisted In thla fable by
the property man (Dave McDonald),
who operates the natural phenomena
(or their convenience. The incense
bearer (Dorothy Mole) helps them to
pass the time away. Then Koeng-
See's galloping mandarin father (Bill
Cameron), finally unites them with his
sword, and these two "doves" fly back
to their Ethereal Home.
Although at times it was difficult
(or the moat practical minds in the
audience to grasp all the details ot
scenery which were not present, much
credit is duo to the director, Mrs. F. 0.
C. Wood, for the way in which this
rather difficult play was managed,
"The Criminal" was the next play
on the program. The scene opens in a
cosy homestead, with the Mother
(Eileen Griff en) and the Father
(Dave Wodlinger) comfortably settled
by the fire-place. These simple folk,
amidst their hams, bacons, benches,
and other luxuries, are talking over
the merits ot their son (Alfred Evans)
who le out at the local "Night Club."
These two uneducated parents, after
some difficulty, manage to read
through a letter of Introduction, extolling the merits of their son. Time
passes, William does not come home,
and (or the flrst time in years the
father has to do the son's work, and
wind the clock. Then suddenly the
door bursts open and in comes William, an altered son. He confesses
his guilt ln a horrible crime, and grim
tragedy enters and develops In this
peaceful home.
The Intense dramatic situation nnd
the wide scope for real acting ln this
play is so realistically carried out by
the actors, that Prof. F. O. C. Wood,
director of "The Criminal" deserves
great credit for his work.
"Mr. Sampson," the third play of the
evening, although u comedy, hud its
element of tragedy. The scene opens
in the country home, of two sisters,
Caroline and Katherlne. Caroline
(Jean Salter) is revealed in the room
talking to "Granfer"—the clock—and
from her talk we learn of the love that,
these sisters bear one another, as well
as their situatton in life. Mr. Sampson (Jim Cole) their neighbour pays
a visit, and comes In, so ot course the
prim Caroline sends blm out again, on
the pretext of looking for her sister.
In the meantime Katherlne (Aune
Ferguson) return from her shopping,
and reveals to Caroline tho dreadful
gossip she has heard regarding themselves and Mr. Sampson. As usual
the timid Caroline bursts Into tears,
which are checked by the return of
Mr. Sampson. The Impetuous Katherlne then vents her wrath or. this unfortunate gentleman, who nobly withstands her attack and declares his
honest intentions of matrimony. Hut
who shall it be? As this situation
develops, comedy and tragedy go hand
In hand, and tears follow rough words.
Thla play Is well acted and the dialect Is In keeping with the realistic
scene. Much of the success of "Mr.
Hampson" Is due to the work of the
director, Miss Sarah Josephine Buttle.
The final play, "Tho Dweller In
Darkness," was certainly a thriller.
This play was written for radio pro
i.uctlon to the extent thnt it Is almost
wholly played In darkness, and consequently much depends on the dialogue.
The scene opens In the :lruwing-
room of a comfortable home where
Mrs. Vyner (Betty Buckland), Phyllis
Vyner (Erica Brldgmsn), Henry (Elmer Murray), and Mr. Mortimer (St.
John Madeley), are engaged In a game
of bridge. We overhear how this house

whose hobby was cheating at cards.
Suddenly the lights go out, and when
they are turned on again It Is discovered that the ace of spades has
changed hands! This and certain
other strange happenings play on the
superstition ot some, but the cynical
Mr. Mortimer will have none of It.
When Mr. Vyner (Eric North), and
Professor Urquart (Gerry Lee) enter
'he room the circumstances are explained to them. Under the direction
of the professor the lights are turned
out and an experiment In spiritualism
Is performed. The situation grows
more Intense ss it develops. Weird
sounds are heard, strange things
happen, ami as usual the professor
puts a listener to sleep. But the
climax conies when a strange presence
Is fell, and this presence, Invoked by
ihe actors, now controls their fr.te.
Dr. F. (*. Walker, the director of this
play, deserves especial credit for the
manner lu which he hus directed the
dialogue und presented the thrilling
situation.
Judging from the tlrst night performance, the Christinas Pluys are a
decided Huccess. Due to the untiring
efforts of Prof. F. (J. C. Wood, the
honorary president of the Players
Club, und the earnest co-operation of
all concerned tho university has given
and received a worth-while entertainment.

Co-ed Is Elected to
Parliament
With u large number of weighty
matters to discuss, tho members of
Students' Parliament assembled Wednesday afternoon in Arts 100. Mlsfi
Annie Taylor was elected Junior, deputy speaker of the house.
Hon. l». Murphy Introduced the following motion: "Resolved that, on
entering buses, If both doors are open,
the women should use only the front
door, and that the men should enter
only by the rear door." He explained
that this procedure would be more
convenient for both the men and the
women without being al all ungentle-
manly to the latter. Hon. A. White-
ley, In seconding the motion urged
thnt this become almost a tradition
among the students. The front steps
are much easier for the ladles to use,
and a two-door service would lessen
the crush. After considerable discussion  the  motion  was defeated.
Hon. F C. Pilkitigton introduced a
resolution to the effect ihat an Aviation Cluh be formed al this University.
Since aiinilon A becoming ol great
Importance to ihe world, we should
keep up with ihe limes. Inasmuch as
il would email a considerable expense and since ihere is already a

McKechnie Cup Team to Clash with
the Vancouver Rep, on Saturday
Dalhousle Team will Meet Varsity in Third Week of
December
Choosing a bunch of plg-skln chasers for the first McKechnie Cup fix.ure
next Saturday is going to he no simple tusk. The eagerness shown by the
majority of tne players turning out makes the problem no easier. Last Saturday saw about thirty senior men sweating under the orders of our hard
working coach, Jack Tyrwhltt. Practice commenced at 12 p.m. aud it waa
nearly 3 p.m. before tho players returned to the dressing room. However,
evidence of too much solf-confldence In walking over the Industrious Vancouver Rep, muy become apparent and to kill thla Jack has ordered all men
to get In und work still harder.   We must hold the McKechnie Cup.
Keen opposition is apparent for the
full back berth, Squiddy Mclnnls,
(lord Logan, and Harold Kelly each
having the qualities necessary for that
position. Squid has proved himself
often and frequently, Oord Logan possesses a driving kick and a deadly
tackle, Harold Kelly has shown wonderful ability in that he Is the first
man who has been able to convert
from any angle with success.
In the three line, Fell and Phil
Willis Intend to make "Pin Point"
Richardson step to keep his place.
Phil Is of last year's squad and knows
his plg-sklns. Fell Is a recent newcomer from the R. M. C. and can do
other things besides play football.
Harold Kelly Is also keen on geeting
his former position of five-eighths
back and will keep "Red" Barratt
humping to hold his place.
In the forward division there is the
biggest competition of all especially In
the back line where, Noble, Morris,
Farrlngton, Wilson, Sinclair, Jones,
Phillips and Farrls are stepping on
each others necks. All of these men
possess creditable qualities and choice
becomes    awkward.
Saturday's game will afford the student spectator ninety minutes of wholesome fun for the apecial price of
twenty-five cents.
The latest reports from Dalhousle
state that that team Is now finishing
off its fall schedule and will be prepared to leave for the West about the
beginning of the third week In December. The men are in fine shape and
expeel to make a good showing
against the western teams at Christmas. These games will be national
In more ways than one. They will
bring together the two extreme sides
of Canada In friendly combat and,
besides arousing- great Interest in the
Maritime Provinces and In British Columbia, will command the attention of
the  whole  I;oniinion.
According to Don Farrls there are
slill some members ol ihe Dalhousle
leant who have not been berthed so

quarters for a handsome eastern rugger make yourself known to Farrls or
anyone acquainted with him. Your
hospitality will be greatly appreciated.

Here, where ovorythiiitf is on it Inrj-'e seale, Miss Hansford has made,
every effort to capture the atmosphere which niitile the old cafeteria
i-harming.
It was her personal direction and her interest in the welfare of
tho students which won Miss Hansford many friends. Those whoso
health demanded diet always received special attention from her
no matter what trouble. Her readiness to accommodate eager
crnmmers near examination time, her interest in making afternoon
teas a success, all her many kindnesses, will bo held in grateful
memory.
We take this opportunity then to express our appreciation of
MIsh Hanford's work and our regret at her resignation.
THE O. T. C.
Regarding the question of the O.T.C. which has been raised by
several correspondents we would like t<» make our positior. clear. We
admit that we had been misinformed as to the number of times the
question had been voted down. Tn 1924-2") a questionnaire submitted
to the student body, revealed the fact that approximately ',iO out of
400 men were interested in the formation of an Officers Training
Corps. In the spring of 1926 the Dominion Government, offered to
build a drill hall which could be used ns a gymnasium if a Training
Corps would be established. The offer was accepted by the student
body.
Since that time the matter has been tacitly dropped, "shelved"
to use the phrase of one correspondent. Having once signified their
intention of adopting the plan there was nothing—a.s far as the
students were concerned—to prevent them from putting it into action. It was shelved either from lack of interest or as a result of
maturer reflection on the part of the voters.
We mnintain the position of our editor's note. At, the present
moment the O.T.C. is n dead issue. It is up to those students who
have any interest in it to see that it is made a question of general discussion. We have our opinions on the .subject and when (he right
time conies shall state them. In the meantime until the O.T.C. becomes a matter for student consideration we repeat that in suppor-
ing it we would not be representing student opinion. We refuse to
make mountains out of molehills, nor is it our business to force
upon student notice a matter in which they have shown no general
interest.

Alfred Noyes' Address
Alfred Noycs addressed a large
audience lu Wesloy Church last Wednesday evening on tho subject of
"I'ootry und its Relation to Life."
To this woll-known Kngllsh poet the
members of that audience are Indent,
cd for u recapitulation of certain
truths und, in addition, a recital of
less certain statements on tho subject.
Mr. Noyns begun his address hy quoting Arnold's opinion, expressed In
lKvSO, thut "lu poetry, whore It is
worthy of Its high destinies, our race
will tlnd Its slay." This opinion he
supplemented with his own thut
"poetry Is a part of life, nnd not a
blown bubble." Tho speaker wont on
to auy, however, that In tho hurry of
modern life people inn spare tlmo lo
read only tho shorter poem; and It
Heoms to us, who listened to the lecture, thut poetry runs thus the risk ot
being altogether too small it part of
Hie. However, as Mr. Noyes pointed
out, lu the fourteen Hues of a sonnet
musterpluce such us Wordsworth's
"Tho World Is Too Much With Us,"
readers are given a glimpse of the
eternal verities of life; a fact which,
we suppose compensates us in some
meusure for Ihe loss of that longer
masterpiece "Tho Prelude," to Hay
nothing of several of the lengthier
works ot those Victorluns whom Mr.
Noycs was at some pains to extol.
There is confusion to-day, Mr.
Noyes went on, ubout the uature of
poetry, but In tho long line of poetic
descent from Homer to Tennyson certain values survive, and, to find out
what poetry Is, one need only consult
tho great poets of tho pnut. Where
they agree ono will find truth. And
the truth that Mr. Noyes has found Is-
that poetry must bo a kind of song, u
music—a truth which, to us at least,
Is not proclsely new or useful. Tho
speaker, however, contended that it Is
sufficient to exclude from tho realm of
poetry all forms of vers llbre. Freo
verse was accorded, along with modern realism, a scathing criticism
based on grounds now familiar to
most of us.
It Is the fashion today, proceeded
the speaker, to measure a man's ability by seeing how far he can reduce
everything to dust und ashes. The
modern realist, as understood by Mr.
Noyes, gives to his reader a little dirt
called life—the surface without the
substance. The older school of poeta
gives to its public truth—tho Inner
beauty, the deeper significance of tho
thing called life. Keats was quoted
in the course of the lecture as speaking for the latter school when ho said,
"lleauty is truth, truth beauty." But
we, who attended tho lecture, are still
in tlie dark as to what is beauty and
what is truth.
In conclusion Mr. Noyes recited selections from his own poems.
Random Remarks
I'lii'siiing his Eorsyie chronicles, Mr.
.Inhii (ialswoil hy has jus! tinisln it a

THE AGGIE BUILDING
From tlie Arts Building, tin- iIIhII-

cimted by a bund of yokels who pro

The Aggie Common Room, situated
ou the ground Hour, Is a desolate den.

The most important room in tlu-
building Is Ag. 100. On entering, the
tourist at once discovers that lt Is
merely a feeble Imitation of Arts H)0.
The most striking tiling is the peculiar
effluvium that vigorously assails allcomers. The visitor is warned not to
mention this phenomenon as the
Aggies are rather touchy ubout It.
After a glance up and down the cor-
"Idors the guide hurries his charges
from the place, as there Is nothing particularly worth seeing. The place Is
mediocre,—much worse than the Arts
liulldlng and decidedly better than
the Science Building. Its peculiar
feature Is the large amount of straw
scattered ubout the floors,

Inn there was no market for tooth-

A man, an uncouth sort of fellow,
nunc up to me and said In a niisul
whisper, "Bo, does yuh wish lull succeed ill (Us life." "Yes," I replied
wittily. "Den follow me,' he grunted.
I followed. I had learned to beware of
all strangers but at this crucial moment I disregarded all my training in
"Keonoinlcs."
The man walked Into a dark alley
and there we held a hurried consultation. He sold tne a boolleggcr's
license, a book entitled, "The Kihlcs
of Hoot legging," and three empty hot-
lies.
1 Immediately read the book, from
which I culled these startling bits of
logic, "To sell you must have customers," "If life Is one long drink, gel
In on it." "Success will come if your
work is successful" and "Why work
when you can follow a profession."

ed as ihough I were about to fail
again. Then the corner policeman
bought llu- ihive bottles. Ih- asked
tin- to accompany him to his home.
His home turned out to be the police
station. 1 was sentenced to four years
hard labor.
In the seclusion of my cell I chuckle
wilh glee, 1 have actually fooled a policeman into buying three bottles of
water. Who can deny that I am on

Correspondence
Mudam Editor:
1 am writing on behalf oil tho L.S.D.
to explain the attitude of thin Department during the Inst year.
At the beginning of the term u
change was made In the represcntnt-
tion of the Department. Previously,
the Historical and Literary Societies
.....j
Kdltor. "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
lu this, the last Issue of the term,
we would like to express our appreciation of this year's "Ubyssey" stuff.
Since Its tlrst Issue ln September, It
has shown a noteworthy interest ln
all phases of life on the campus und
had each sent a representative to our | of Interest to tho University; It has
meetings, lt was felt that a fairer
division could be made. Tho need for
a change wus especially great on account of the growing Importance ot
the philosophy, International aud
Social Science flubs. Therefore, the
I'lviii'li, tlerman, Classical ami Let tern
Cluli were grouped together. The
International, Social Science, anil
I'lillomtphy Claim were milled to the
Historical Society, It was decided
that the Literary anil Debating So
cietlcs hud enough lu common to he
put under the Jurisdiction of the De-
hates Manager. All these changes are
lu accordance with our constitution.
The L.S.D. also wishes to take this
opportunity to thank all student organisations, especially the S.C.M., lor
the number of spoukers, which they
have brought before the Student
Body. Ho efficiently has this tusk
been performed by these groups, thut
there has been little opportunity uud
less necessity for the L.S.D. to carry
out that part or their program.
In conclusion, the L.S.D. wishes to
state that they are ready to co-oporute
with the A.M.S. in any change Involving the functioning ot this Department.
Yours sincerely,
MAHY H. WATTS, Sec'y.
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
Appearing ln tho Tuesday Issue of
your paper is an article which Is not
fit as a space filler for tho Muck page.
1 refer to the half-column of morunlsh
babble, evidently thought by the author to be a scoop, which appeared
under the head "Harnum Was Right."
The article is full evidence that Burn-
urn made no mistake.
As a result of the "Sherlock
Holmes" revelation, your correspondence column is revealed as nothing
more than a farce.
Had the letter beeu left as it was,
the blunder might not have been
noticed, but for the Publications Board
to defend it in this Inst Issue Is, I
think, almost overstepping the duties
nnd privileges of the staff of a college
paper. The heading to the article Implies a very serious accusation which
was either overlooked or dismissed as
a Joke—neither being sufficient Just
fiction for Its appearance.
I would suggest that henceforth the
Correspondence Column be kept as an
expression of student opinion and not
as a drainage basin for the Muck page
or as a mouth piece for perverted musings.
Sincerely,
W. E. THOMSON.
Editor's Note—
The letter In question was written to
"encourage discussion." When a city
paper took it in a wrong light, wo considered it our duty to explain the matter. Most of the correspondence that
we have received this year has been
anons laous, In order that letters
should carry some weight us expressions of student opinion we consider
that henceforth they must have the
signature of the authors, as an evidence of good faith.
Dear Editor "Ubyssey"
In the student body of this I'niverslty there are several students who
far surpass all the others in knowledge and In brilliance. In some cases
they even know moro about the subjects than the professors giving the
courses. What I wish to criticise Is
their everlusting attempts to test their
knowledge and to demonstrate to their
classmates by tedious and fruitless
arguments with the lecturers. I say
arguments because, whatever a lecturer ndmits, these zealots find grounds
for further contention. I believe I
echo the sentiments of fellow members of some economics classes, and
if some of these aforementioned
brilliant, students read ibis letter 1
hope they will not become too self-
conscious and thus deprive us of
much valuable mutetlal for examination purposes,
Yours truly,
HUHNINO IT (Arts -i'i.)

Dear Madam;
I heartily agreo with Messrs. Thornber, Cummlng, und Pllkington, that
the formation of an O.T.C. at, tho U.
H.C. Is highly desirable.
In an editorial note recently you
stated that the institution of such a
body has twice beon voted down by
the students, but that was In a dim
and misty eru several years ago when,
as Mr. Pllkington says, there were
ninny returned soldiers tn the University who did uot see the necessity of
nn O.T.C. us they had learned their
drill on a harsher Hold. To-day the
men who Influenced University
thought nt that tlmo are scattered
through the Province and many of us
who have not hud the advantage of
any considerable military training desire that we may at least have the
opportunity of learning the rudiments
of national defense.
Formerly there may have been somo
reason for voting down the OjT.C, but
if that occurred today, there would be
"something wrong In Denmark." I
have some faith In the patriotism and
intelligence of the mass of students
at the University, aud 1 am willing to
wager that if a proposal for tho forma
tion of an O.T.C. is brought up at the
next meeting of the Alma Mater Society it will bo endorsed by an overwhelming majority. Possibly If this
occurred we might approach tho
Oovernment to see If they would provide us with a Gym. aa was originally
proposed. This, howover, is merely
Incidental, the main object which we
have to strive for Is the formation of
an O.T.C. with or without trimmings,
Youra sincerely,
R. E. M. YERBURGH, Arts   28.

Ice Hockey Team
Shapes Well
lco hockey seems to be ln for a very
successful season Judging from the
numbers that are flocking down to the
Arena for practice. Tho Juniors
especially should have a good team.
There aro two men trying out for the
goalie's position, Garden und Watson.
Tho defense will likely bo composed
of h, Cnllan and Dalton, while the forwards will bo chosen from Hume, Cur-
slow, Parker, Farrls and P. Callan.
This hunch will be very hard to boat,
and should add another trophy to Varsity's growing collection.
Tho Intermediates, while they do
not look to be as strong comparatively
us Ihe Juniors are hy no means going
to be walked over this year,
lu Holders from Port Arthur, Varsity
has a llrst class goal tender, and
Stanley also Is good in this position.
For defense there Is lllindes uud Mac-
Donald, while the forwards ure
Mathews, Newmarch, Chappell, Mooy-
boor, Hell, (Irani aud Kuowles. Severul
new men, among them, Justly, Hulley,
Pike und lluyley show promise ami
will make the others step to hold
thetr positions,

Mandarin Yellow
with Black Tips
See this Duofold Duette flash its
colour as the box is opened. See
eyes flash their thanks to you.
This striking combination—Parker
Duofold Pen and Pencil—is the ne plus
ultra in a writing gift this year—the
sensation in the stores. Put It down on
your Christmas list, several times.
But get your Mandarin Yellow Duettos early, for the newest of the inimitable Parker Colours won't last long!
Both Pen and Pencil made with
Parker Permanite non-breakable material - ,18'; lighter than the rubber
formerly employed.
Such lit;lit weight adds immensely
to your writing ease. So does Pressureless Touch, which further distinguishes the Parker Duofold Pen
this year.
In the Parker PonciV—the lead turns
out for writing, in for carrying. New
leads inserted without taking pencil
apart.
Other colours are Lacquer-red,
Lapis Lazuli Blue, Green Jade or
Flashing Black.
But don't depend on colour only-
look for "Geo. S. Parker"on the barrel
it you want the genuine Duofold.
