Varsity Drops
Hard Fought Game
To Bluebirds
Fast Pace in Final League
For the first time this season the
Hockey team heard the familiar 'Kitsilano Capilano" from Varsity rooters.
About 30 men turned out to support
the team and altho' Varsity lost, everyone admitted it was a great game.
The first period started with a rush
and a fast pace was set right up till
the final whistle blew. End to end
rushes were made by both teams, the
Bluebirds playing a little more combination. Stilwell for Varsity played a
fine game worrying the Bluebirds' defence all through the game. For a
time Varsity had their own way but
luck was against them and they could
not score.
A nice combination rush by the Bluebirds resulted in a goal. Varsity tried
hard to even up but did not play
enough combination and their solo
rushes were stopped by the Bluebirds'
The second period was a repetition
of the first, but there was no score.
Colton and Christie played well during
this period breaking up numerous
dangerous rushes. Demidoff worked
hard and backchecked well.
The Bluebirds made a four man rush
but McPherson stopped it and passed
to Christie who took the puck to the
other end on a solo rush but was tripped before he shot for goal. A very
fast pace was kept up during this
The last period found Varsity fighting mad. They stormed the Bluebirds
defence but horseshoes seemed to be
hung all around the Bluebirds' goal,
and they could'nt score.
The Bluebirds made a nice rush and
scored on a mix up around the goal.
Ernie Clarke in goal saved some hard
shots and was cool in the pinches.
Varsity again raided the Nats defense and with fine hook checking, in
which Demidofl* excelled, they bottled
the Bluebirds up behind their out blue-
line but just couldn't find the net.
The final whistle found Varsity still
trying hard to score.
Line up: Clark, Christie, Colton,
Stillwell, McPherson, McCutcheon,
Demidoff, Stewart.

Last Friday's game finished the

The Women's Public Speaking Con
test of Wednesday, Jan. 18, was the
most successful of these annual contests ever held. Miss Portsmouth,
President of the Women's Lit. occupied the chair.
The first speaker, Miss Helen McGill, Arts '25 in a clear straight-forward speech, convinced her audience
that teachers on strike have the
right to the respect of the community.
Miss "Pete" MacKinnon, Arts '22,
with delightful humor, transported
her hearers to the electoral district of
North Okanagan, in the year 1942.
She spoke as candidate for the Provincial Legislature, the chief plank in
her platform being—Support for the
University of B. C. "Why," she asked,
"has money not been found for U.B.C.
when the government has financed the
Sumas Lake scheme, the erection of
government buildings at Prince
Rupert, and the change in the Rule
of the Road by the B. C. Electric?"
The answer is that we have not had
men in our legislature who are enthusiastic  about  higher  education.
Miss Greta Mather, Arts '24, brought
her audience back to a serious consideration of Canada in World Politics.
She emphasized Canada's achievement in developing from a colony to
a sovereign state, united to the Mother
Country by bonds of sentiment
stronger than iron; and declared that,
as a country potentially in the forefront among nations, Canada has
three main responsibilities: (1) To
fulfill her duties as the highway for
commerce and for exchange of ideas
between Occident and Orient. (2) To
cooperate with her sister nations. (3)
To act as interpreter between the sister British sovereign states and the
U. S.
Miss Mildred Osterhout, Arts '23,
traced humorously the effect of public
opinion through the life of an average
individual. Then, more seriously she
showed the folly of allowing it to
shape one's life when the world needs
men and women courageous enough
to disregard mere convention.
The last speaker, Miss Sallee
Murphy, Arts '23, called forth enthusiastic applause with a brilliant
speech on "Conversation as a Fine
While the Judges withdrew to consider their decision, Miss Mather entertained the audience with a piano
solo and Mr. Hurst led the singing
of several college songs.

Arts '25 Well On_The
English Comedy Will
Be Spring Play
Rehearsals began on Tuesday last
for the seventh annual public performance of the Players' Club. The play
finally selected is the three act ;
comedy, "Mr. Pim Passes By," from
the pen of A. A. Milne, a recent English dramatist who has gained much
notice. Before 1914, Mr. Milne was an
editor of "Punch." It was during the
war, when home on leave, that he first
found time to satisfy his yearning to
write plays. The result has been the
publication of two volumes of plays in
the last two years that have been
warmly received both in the old country and America. Those that have
stood the test of production are "Belinda", in which Ethel Barrymore played in New York, "Mr. Pim", "The
Romantic Age" and "The Great Brox-
opp", at present an offering in New
"Mr. Pim" was so unusual in theme,
and so refreshing in style, that it won
the approval of the foremost company
of New York producers, the Theatre
Guild, when they were searching for
a play to follow Shaw's 'Heartbreak
House" in their carefully selected programme. This ambitious group of artistic people of the theatre was quietly
formed some two seasons ago for the
purpose of attempting to stage productions that would appeal to intelligent persons, not because of a striking play alone, but because it was cast
(Continued on page  2)
College Spirit! Pep! Where have we
heard those words before? We all
know what they stand for and anyone
who went to the Freshman Dance on
Friday evening will tell you that these
two spirits reigned supreme The decorations were a marvel of delight and
called forth many an oh! and an ah!
from the guests. The orchestra was
the last word in perfection, and the
supper?    Fit for a King!
In the centre of the auditorium
was a large fountain surrounded by
several beautiful palms. Tall wicker
stands, filled with rose colored plumes,
were placed on the stage and in the
corners. Over the stage hung a large
'"25" and at the back of the room
was a spot-light which cast a soft,
many-colored glow over the hall. For
those who should grow weary of their
merry-making, a comfortable davenport, screened by palms, and lighted
by a tall lamp, was placed in one corner.
The affair was opened with a witty
speech by Mr. Wood. At supper, Mr.
John Schaffer, the promising young
cartoonist of Arts '25, entertained the
starving revellers with several snappy
cartoons depicting the Sophomore,
"As He thinKs He is," "As He is," and
"As. Freshies see Him," (Thunderous
Applause) A final drawing was an
excellent likness  of Mr. Wood.
After this performance came the
event of the evening. Mr. "Tubby"
Shore, attired as Brutus, stalked
upon the scene followed by several
freshmen in more or less Roman attire.
With them they bore on a bier, that
great scoundrel, the Sophomore, draped in "habiliments" of the grave.
In blood-curdling tones the orator
described the atrocities of the Sophomore, turning the hearts of the audience to ice. They racked and
swayed in an agony of suspense.
What fate had the mighty Brutus assigned to the villain? Their greatest
hopes were realized when he thundered "We've come to burn the
Sophomore, not to praise him!"
Herewith, the remaining Romans
rushed upon the victim and expelled
life from his body with poisonous incense and the fumes of various five-
cent cigars. To the monotonous tones
of a funeral march, played by the
orchestra, the lifeless form was car-
ied (?)    from  the  room.
The coffee having grown cold from
lack of attention during this all-absorbing act, the merry-makers returned to their dancing, which lasted
until   midnight. THE     UBYSSEY

"There's an awful lot of knowledge
That you never learn at College
There are heaps of things you never
learn at school.
What is a line?
A line is something which no one
can define and everyone can recognize
—except the person towards whom it
Is directed. It is the answer to those
puzzling questions, "What can he see
in her?" and "How can she stand
him?" It is the reason why the main
hall is never empty and some girl's
programmes are always full. (An absence of line on the part of the inquirer will also produce the latter
result.) A line has one end—the luring of a lad or a lady—and a million
variations. The same one cannot be
used with a tennis racquet and a
feather fan. The latter rule ,however,
applies to ladies. Men may use the
same line at all times and seasons—
with gradations of course, and with
care, for co-eds sometimes compare
notes. There is all the difference in
the vorld between "My dear -!ie luis
a wonderful lino'" and"OI he uses
the some line for everybody."
What Science Men Think.
"What is a line?" or "Roll your own—
and when should it be used?"
"This is a mean question or at least
a mean line. It is all right to shoot
it but don't mean what you say.
As long as you don't pull a bull, it
is all right to approach the "bevy of
beauty" at the ball, call yourself the
introduction committee and then try
your line.
The line is elastic and can be
stretched greatly, but be careful of
the comeback for this should be snappy—"E. Beer."
Does he mean it?
There is a man in this college with
a wonderful line. Sphinxette has received the same sad tidings in three
different letters—three girls are in
love with him—and none of them are
sure of him. All three sing the praises of his fairness, his tallness and
his blue-eyedness, all declare that they
are infatuated and one young lady is
even sure that doubts about his fidelity will cause her to flunk. But—
they have neglected to state whether
he is in Arts, Science or agriculture.
A different line must be used for each,
and until Sphinxette receives definite
information she cannot solve the problem of "Does he mean it?" In the
meantime, if a tall fair man now pulling the same line on three co-eds at
once, recognizes himself by this description will he please call at the Publications Office anytime after 3 o'clock.
Sphinxette feels he could give her
several hints.
Next week's question—can you answer it?
How does a Vamp?
(Continued from Page 1)
Mr. Angus, on behalf of the Judges,
spoke very highly of the speeches
as a whole, remarking that every
speaker had a sense of humor. He
drew attention to three general faults
—too fast speaking, lack of clarity in
enunciation, and the choice of essay
subjects which lacked the element
of persuasion necessary to Public
Speaking. He then criticized each
speaker in turn and finally announced
that the two book prizes of $12 and
$8 had been awarded to Miss MacKinnon and Miss Mather respectively.

with acting folk of experience, with
the scenery the most harmonious that
trained artists could make, and the
lighting in skilled hands able to produce those effects that so enhance a
play if properly employed. The result has been that tins group of
"visionaries" as the commercial producers termed them, has firmly established itself as the most important
factor contributing to the betterment
of the stage in America. Their first
great success was Ervine's "John
Ferguson", and other productions that
added to their reputation were "The
Faithful" by Masefield, "The Bonds of
Interest" of Benevente, "Jane Clegg",
"The Power of Darkness", and "Heartbreak House."
So successful was "Mr. Fim" upon
its production last February, that the
Guild found itself forced to rent another theatre when its next offering,
the much discussed "Liliom", was
ready at the end of April. "Mr. Pim",
so charmed New York that he was
able to stay with them all through the
heat of the summer,—a severe test
that saps the life of all but a very few
plays each season. It was only after
a run of eight months that "Mr. Pim"
passed on to some of the larger eastern cities. In Toronto, the play was
termed the best attraction of the present season, and in Boston, where an
engagement of four weeks has just
been terminated, the comedy was
equally successful. The Players' Club
is to be congratulated on being able
to give this play its first production
west of Toronto, thereby introducing
Mr. Milne to the people of British Co
The play is best described as a high
comedy. It is not the action, but the
dialogue and characterization that
give it distinction. As such, it will
test more severely, than did the efforts
of the past two years, the ability of
those making the cast. The dialogue
is witty without being forced, and is
refreshingly free from cynicism. The
plot is concerned with the casual introduction of the gentle, kindly Mr.
Pim into the peaceful Buckinghamshire residence of Mr. George Marden,
J.P. In the course of the morning he
unwittingly manages to disturb the
calm of its' inmates most effectively,
and from this upheaval, the comedy
The cast has not been finally selected. As a result of try-outs during the
second week of vacation, Mr. Jack V.
Clyne, Arts 23, was awarded the part
of Marden, the obstinate squire. From
the thirty-five candidates for places,
some three for each part were selected, and these are now attending rehearsals with a view to getting an
adequate conception of their various
roles, before the final test on Friday
next. The advisory Board, Professors
A. F. B. Clark, T. Larsen and F. G. C.
Wood, were assisted in judging by
Miss E. M. Coney of the Normal
School, Miss D. Jefferd of the Library,
and Misses C. Highmoor, S. McGuire
and D. Adams, former members of
the Players' Club casts.
The date of production will be early
in March, and the Club is determined
to make this seventh production a
memorable one. At this early date,
invitations for out-of-town performances have been received from organizations in New Westminster, Nanaimo,
Kamloops, Vernon, Kelowna, and Pen-
ticton, so it is safe to assume that the
annual tour will be extended even
further than that of last year.

It has been proposed by the Men's
Athletic Executive to have a- champion class, chosen from points obtained in several different competitions.
Among these will be Track Meet, Arts
'20 Relay, Rugby, Tug-of-War and possibly various other games. Nothing
definite has been decided as to dates
and order of games but in all probability these will commence in a couple
of weeks. Watch the notice boards
and the sports page for further information. Champion class will be
quite a distinction for any class to
carry around and the obtaining of it
will require plenty of hard work and
training and plenty of rivalry. So lets
see some pep. An executive has been
formed to talk it over.
It is with deep regret that the
"Ubyssey" records the death of Dom-
enic Heyland, which occurred last
Thursday at the Jubilee Hospital in
Mr. Heyland had a splendid war record, going overseas at the outbreak
of the war with the First Contingent.
After his return he attended the University, taking an active part in athletics. He was the fastest wing three-
quarters that the team has had, and
was a well-known figure on the track.
Unfortunately his career at Varsity was short. At mid term he was
seized by an illness which forced him
to withdraw, and from which he subsequently   died.
Monday—Mass meeting in auditorium.
Tuesday Night—Debate between
faculty and students: Resolution,
"That lectures are detrimental to a
university course." Faculty to take
the  affirmative.
Wednesday—Faculty vs. Students.
Thursday Night—Theatre night.
Friday Night—Open.
Saturday Night—Basketball in Normal Gym. Senior men; Senior girls;
Students Council vs. Faculty.
Sunday—Student service to be arranged.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday Noons—Interclass Tug-of-war
There will be an important meeting
of the club on Friday at noon at which
the activities for the rest of the year
will be outlined and discussed. The
special business on tap is the election
of a president and a consideration of
the constitution. The best part of the
year for outdoor activities is at hand.
There is a good crust on the snow
on Grouse mountain, which makes it
ideal for sliding and hiking.
Over the Christmas holidays the
mountain was not forgotten by members of the club. Several parties
spent the night at the cabin while
one at least intended to but didn't.
They spent the night in the snow.
Since the term started a party has
gone up every week-end. For next
Saturday a good number have signified their intention of coming along.
Any students who are interested in
hiking of any kind will find it to
their advantage to be at the meeting
on Friday. Now that the Rugby season is nearly over we will be able to
carry out our programme of Wednesday and Saturday afternoon hikes to
points near at hand besides the regular ones up Grouse Mountain.
As most of us are aware, a victory
for Varsity over Vancouver "Rep" in
the game next Saturday would bring
with it the possession of the McKechnie Cup for the following year. So
far this season the first fifteen has
suffered no defeat, but to round off
this great achievement, success next
Saturday is essential.
We all know how closely fought was
the game with Victoria, and in the
forthcoming game, representing as
it does, Vancouver's last opportunity
to save the series, the task promises
to be just as formidable. Our opponents, who are fielding a team
which is admittedly stronger than
the one Varsity defeated in November,
will certainly spare no effort to make
victory  theirs.
There is every reason to believe
that Varsity can maintain its position,
but in sport as in most other things
the unexpected often happens. To
leave anything undone that would
make success more certain would be
empty-headed cocksurness. Therefore let next Saturday see every last
one of us at Brockton Point—Rooting!
Rooting!   Rooting!'
Lacrosse is booming. Get in with
the gang and make it a success.
Coaches and trainers are already
being lined up. Billy West and Bay
Carter have offered their services to
the Varsity Club.
A constitution is being drawn up.
Arts '25 have challenged any other
year to a game.
Sticks are being procured from the
New Westminster  Senior Amateurs.
The Lacrosse Club has got well
over the required number to be duly
recognized as a club in the University.

Where do you go the night before
the day when you haven't a lecture?
Well, did Robinson and would Friday?
In other words, February 16 is
theatre night and the boys are working hard over the big act. This is

just what those good old scouts Robinson Crusoe and Friday really did

To some the existing state of affairs
in connection with our library is only
too well-known; others of us have
probably little idea of the sad lack of
common honesty which makes such a
state of affairs possible. In the University year 1920-21, over one hundred books were taken without record
from the library, a practise which evidently was found to be fairly safe and
pleasant, for the unaccountable loss
of library books is on the increase.
Until the next check we will not know
exactly to what extent our stacks have
been depleted, but what knowledge we
have is slightly disturbing. The exercise of predatory instincts is not restricted even to this one field; there is
a long, official list of unbound periodicals which are missing. Nothing is
sacred; in many cases the reading-
room leather covers have disappeared
with their respective magazines.
We are university men and women.
Are we awake to the fact that, apart
from the extra work and loss of time
such promiscuous thieving gives to the
library staff, it is our interests and
those of the university, which suffer?
The U.B.C. library is one of the finest
in Canada; and a library means a
great deal to any university. As students, we profit by its excellence and
bear a responsibility toward its maintenance. Are we going to stand calmly by while the dishonorable actions
of an insignificant minority give to the
student body both a bad reputation,
and the burden of a considerable material disadvantage? Apart from the
disgraceful aspect of the situation,
which each of us must feel keenly,
there is, on the material side, an irreparable loss. It is almost impossible to replace back numbers of the
unbound periodicals which have been
taken, a number of volumes will be
unable to be bound and stacked because of the incompleteness of the file.
Our reference facilities will be correspondingly handicapped; it is we
who suffer, not the library authorities.
It is rather an undesirable type of
student who would knowingly cripple
the resources of what is an integral
part of his university. And this is the
inevitable result when a student lazily, carelessly, or dishonestly, takes a
book or a magazine without having it
checked against him on his card by
the attendant at the Loan desk.
An editorial on the subject of debates, coming at this season, is certain to invite perusal through its appropriateness; and it is perhaps
somewhat unfair that a topic of immediate and compelling interest
should be utilized to inveigle the unsuspecting into a disquisition upon
mob psychology. Being inspired, however, to call attention to a certain unfortunate attitude of mind that
threatens to develope in our College,
we chose the subject of debating both
to serve as a familiar illustration, and
to camouflage the deadliness of our
We have all heard with envy of the
facilities enjoyed by students at other
Colleges for perfecting themselves in
the art of public speaking. We have
listened to accounts or ineir classes
and their coaches; of their numerous
competitive tryouts, and their minute
and exacting preparations. Comparisons, when most odious, are usually
most inevitable; and it would not be
strange if some of us should develope
an unfortunate attitude of mind on the
subject of what we believe to be our
handicaps. If this be so, it is a condition of affairs that will bear discussion.
It may be claimed that so long as
we acquit ourselves creditably in intercollegiate competitions this attitude
of mind is harmless;—in fact, that it
serves as an added cause for jubilation in victory, and as a source of
consolation in defeat. But it has a
deeper significance than that. Reiteration is the secret of conviction,
and there is a very real danger that
a sense of our unequal opportunties,
injudiciously nurtured, may develope
into-a traditional grievance.
The results of such a condition
scarcely require elaboration. In the
matter of debates—the example quoted
above—the immediate effect would be
an inclination for us to belittle the
chances of our men by a tacit belief
that they were handicapped through
inferior preparation. And no belief
could be more unfortunate, or more
unfounded. However inadequate our
equipment may be, we can still boast
that our debaters are backed by the
enthusiastic and tireless assistance of
a faculty that compares favorably with
any in Canada. Those of us who attended the recent debate with the University of Washington could not but
be impressed by the superior grasp
of the subject which our men displayed.
We do well to think on these things.
They not only teach us to award credit equitably, they help us also to
keep the matter of our limitations in
a true perspective.
It has always been an injustice that
athletes representing our University
should have to bear their own medical and hospital expenses for injuries
received on the field of sport. Such
has been the case since the University began. U. B. C. has not been
so careful of her athletes as most
of the older established colleges,
where sick and injured players are
provided for by student funds.
To remedy this injustice is the idea
of the proposed Injuries Trust Fund
which will be brought before the
students at the next Alma Mater meeting. The Ubyssey is confident that it
will receive, as it ought, the unanimous support of the students. The
cost will be small and the protection
afforded the athletes considerable.
Yet it is no more than their due; and
only one small service that can be
done for the players who wear the
Blue and Gold.

Final eliminations for the Men's
Oratorical Contest were held on Wednesday afternoon, Jan. 18, when the
Judges, Professors H. T. Logan,
Beckett, and Henderson, selected
Messrs C. A. F. Clark; Allan McL.
Hurst; Geoffrey Coope; E. S. Fleming; and J. Yonemura, to contend for
honors on the night of February 11.
The contest promises to be a spirited
one, and the Executive of the Mens'
Literary urge members to turn out
and support the speakers.
All agree as to the importance of
Public speaking, and the necessity of
establishing it as a course in the
college curriculum. Let's show the
authorities that we are interested by

Try-outs for the Willamette Debate
will be held tomorrow. Speeches are

all those entering for the try-outs
pledge themselves to assist in collecting material for the debate, others besides those chosen to represent U.B.C.
at Salem will have an opportunity to
contribute their efforts towards making this venture a success.

Editor   "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
I was much interested in the article,
in a recent copy of the Ubyssey, suggesting the advisaDility of adopting a symbol for the college. I think it is a good
idea,   and   one   well   worth   considering.
If the concensus of opinion favored
the adoption of such a symbol, I think
the most appropriate one we could find
would be that of a Bull Moose, either
on a field rampant, or standing in solitude,   imperious  and  majestic.
Here we would have something emblematic of practically every quality
imaginable, at least of all those ot any
practical use to us. There is dignity, in
the general bearing, virility and strengtli
in the massive proportions.
Again he is King of the Barrens;
and should not that be symbolic of the
University of British Columbia? Here
we are in a more or less isolated position and are surrounded by conditions
as crude and unpropitious as those
about  the  antlered  monarch   himself.
Then too, such an emblem would be
very adaptable to football usage. For
instance we could have a "Moose Call
to rally the stalwarts, (Bull Mooses),
from the dressing rooms. The two
forwards could use their "horns" to
"hook" in the scrums, and the charge
of such  a herd would  be  irresistable.
Again the Moose is no parasite, as
is every carnivorous animal; moreover,
he is a peace loving creature but capable of great feats of strength, endurance and bravery when such actions
are  required.
I think everyone will concede that
these are all worthy attributes. There are
many others that might be mentioned.
It is sufficient to say that for every
quality desirable in our college some
symbol can be found for it in the Moose:
similarly every attribute of the moose,
more than any other bird or animal
has, or should have its counterpart in
our   University.
E. S. F. Arts '23.
Editor   "Ubyssey:"
Dear   Sir:
Will you permit a "Freshette,"
through the columns of our paper, to
express her appreciation for the privilege of hearing distinguished visitors
address the student body on important
topics of the day. The sum total of
such addresses during the remaining
years of our activities at the U. B. C.
must contribute much to the widening
of our interest in, and knowledge of,
subjects outside the regular curriculum,
—apart from the valuable opportunity
for studying the oratory, language, and
mannerisms of the various speakers.
The large attendance of students may
be regarded as evidence of the interest
in these occasional noon addresses, and
it must be gratifying to the speakers,
and to those who arrange for their
visit, to find such a hearty response
from   the   student   body.
At the same time I would like to
draw attention to what seeras to me
to be a lack of the common courtesy
due to visitors, exhibited by students,
some of even senior years who disturb
the address by coming in, or going out,
when the speaker is in the middle of his
or her discourse. Even the floors and
steps of our "architectural edifice" voice
their protest in creaks and groans at
these untimely arrivals and departures.
Then there is the lack of courtesy due
to one's colleagues, when, as occasionally happens, a speaker is not gifted
with a voice that carries to the corners
of room Z. Some students are willing
to strain themselves to hear what the
speaker has to say, but are prevented
by the inconsiderate conversation carried
on by students in the rear. With vivid
recollection of initiation vows, Freshettes look to sophs and seniors for
their standards, and may courtesy be
included   on   the   list.
With a sincere desire to maintain
the highest ideals of a University atmosphere in all our activities and to give
the best impression to visitors,
I   am,
Yours   truly,
J.'E. D. Arts '25.
Editor  "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
It was to be expected that our coach
should offer the first opposition to a
change in our Rugby game. As I have
played the Canadian game four seasons
and have watched many games of both
types I would like to back up G. E. W. C.
College spirit is only properly developed by friendly rivalry between colleges.
The Stanford team does not represent
the main Stanford sport and is, therefore, neither representative of the college nor of its major game. We must
Pit ourselves against other Canadian
Universities before we can reach our
full development as a University of
Canada.     The  time  to  start  is  now.
Let us consider some of Mr. Mac-
Lachlan's points of opposition.
(1) He claims international possibilities are nil with the Canadian game.
How often does the "Raleigh" or the
French Rugby team come here? International possibilities would be increased.
After the end of the Canadian season the
team could readily adapt itself to the
American game on account of the
similar nature of the two and we
could then play the University of Washington, Stanford, etc. as one University
against another—not as a University
against a team. Remember that many
of the Stanford boys made the greater
change of American to English Rugby
in a very short time.
(2) There would be no anti-climax
here if all the local teams changed to
the Canadian game or if we played our
southern neighbors. If Varsity started
our own  game the others would  follow.
(3) As pointed out there would be
more first class matches than at present,
although Mr. MacLachlan claims there
would be  fewer.
(4) The extra equipment is negligible
and has never hindered good men from
turning out in other Universities.
(a) The sooner we adopt the Canadian game the sooner will we be able to
play against Alberta and Saskatchewan.
(c) The English Rugby played at
McGill and Toronto is confined to a few
enthusiasts from outside points and is
not  a major  sport.
fe) The Stanford players and their
coach all stated that the outlook for
English Rugby at Stanford is poor—very
As for the games themselves it is
sufficient to say that Ice Hockey Is the
only game that is faster or more exciting than Canadian Rugby.. The day
that U. B. C. wins the Canadian Rugby
Championship will be the greatest day
in her history for she will enter the
hall of sporting fame along with McGill,
Toronto and Queen's.
U.  of B.  C.
A general meeting of the A.M.U.S.
was held last Monday in Room Z,
when plans were drawn up for theatre night and the Arts Men's Smoker.
A committee to look after the Arts
arrangements for theatre night was
elected. This committee was invested
with the power to stage the Arts act
and all men in Arts who have acted
or would like to act are asked to get
in touch with it through the A.M.U.S.
Announcement was also made of the
Arts Men's Smoker, which will take
place on Friday night at the Rowing
Club. As this is the only event which
Arts men have for themselves, all
are asked for their support. Tickets
are on sale now and in order that an
estimate may be arrived at, the executive wishes that everyone who is
going  should  get  his  ticket  at once.
A first class programme of events
has been drawn up, and includes eats
and drinks and all kinds of smokes.
Interclass boxing matches are also being arranged, and to top the whole
programme off, many local cabaret
acts  have  been  secured.
On Friday, noon, there was a meeting of the Agriculture Undergraduate
Society at Braemar. It was a business meeting to discuss athletics and
to complete the plans for the dance.
The latter promises to be a bigger
success than ever if those attending
will obey the instructions which are
to appear  in next week's  "Ubyssey."

: In the opening debate of the men's
interclass contests, which was held
in the Auditorium on January 18, Arts
'24 won a hotly contested decision
over the Freshmen Debaters.
The subject of the debate was the
much discussed disarmament issue.
"Resolved that a substantial measure
of disarmament can prudently be undertaken before the League of Nations, or some similar organization becomes well established."
The Affirmative was upheld by
Kelly and Smith of Arts '25, while
Bruun and Goodwin, Art? '24, defended the negative.
In opening the debate Mr. Kelly
maintained that disarmament was an
economic necessity: that Great Britain and the United States could disarm without endangering themselves;
and that rival armaments were the
cause of war.
Mr. Bruun, leader of the Negative,
then proceeded to show that treaties
were the most worthless security possible; that militarism was not dead
today, and that disarmament without
a guarantee was impossible.
Mr. Smith for the affirmative, claimed that conferences were sometimes
successful; that a measure of disarmament had been undertaken at Washington; and that it was foolish to wait
indefinitely for a League of Nations.
The last speaker, Mr. Goodwin,
maintained that nations will not lay
down the tools of war until the causes
of War are removed. He emphasized
the point that a nation must have a
certain guarantee against aggression
before disarming, and that only a
League of Nations, well organized,
could give that guarantee.
In the rebuttals the Negative showed a general superiority, and were
awarded a 2 to 1 decision.
In announcing the decision, Mr. Larsen complimented both sides upon
material and delivery. The judges
were Prof. Larsen, Prof. Wood and
Doctor Boggs.
On Wednesday afternoon, February
1 at 3:15, there will be held in the
Auditorium another student recital.
All those who were at the last will
know what to expect at this one, for
it will be better still, and a grand
piano will  add  to the  excellence.
This recital is open to all the
faculty and students, and the members of the Musical Society are entitled to invite friends.
These recitals are chiefly for the
benefit of the students and it is hoped
that many will take advantge of these

The Literary Corner
Far, far in the depths of the woods
Where the trees are stately and tall,
There murmurs with music of fairyland
A tiny waterfall.
The pines are green and the spruce,
The ferns and moss in the glade;
And  the   waterfall,  with  its   tinkling
Is a delicate thread of jade.
The spray of the waterfall
Is the home of the Fairy Queen;
The gems on her wings in the sun's
golden  gleams
Shimmer in rainbow sheen.

The meeting of the Chemistry Society, held on Tuesday, January 17,
was addressed by Dr. R. H. Clark,
the subject being "Odors".
The speaker dealt chiefly with the
sense of smell in the animal kingdom, and then proceeded to show
how odors may be associated with
chemical constitution in a manner
analagous to that 'of color characteristics.
There were certain chemical groups,
"osmophores," which, if present in a
compound, determine its odor. The
similarity between osmophores and
cromophores was  pointed  out.
The speaker's remarks were spiced
by his usual humour and the audience was both instructed and
The lecturer then introduced a novel feature consisting of a "Smelling
Competition." A mysterious array
uf flasks containing "unknowns" was
placed before the meeting and the
audience asked to perform some qualitative analysis by the nose method.
The owner of the most highly educated nose was to receive a prize and
the nose whose education had been
most neglected was to be rewarded
with a booby prize. The idea was to
find out how much your nose knows.
Proper handicaps were provided so
that first year students would have
a fair chance with Seniors and Post
The first prize was carried off by
Miss H. N. Mathews of Arts '23 and
the booby prize was jointly and severally won by Mr. S. R. McDougall
and Mr Harold Doyle, both fourth
year chemical engineers. This proves
conclusively that a woman's nose
knows more than a man's nose.
The next meeting of the Society
was held on Tuesday of this week,
when Mr. S. R. McDougall of Sc. '22,
spoke on "Oil Refining," and Mr. H.
A. Anderson of Sc. '23 on "The Coke
Plant at Anyox."
On Thursday evening, January 9,
the Historical Society gathered at the
home of Mr. R. L. Reid, K.C., to deliberate on the Irish question. Interesting and somewhat inspiring papers
were read by Miss Lillian Reid and
W R. McAfee on Ireland, "Pro" and
"Con." After the papers had been
delivered a heated discussion, contributed to effectively by Mr. Robertson, continued long after refreshments had been served by the hostess.
