COUNCIL WILL
CUT EXPENSES
eavaaaaaaa Aasa
Raking of Alma Mater Fete
Suggested
On Monday evening the Students'
Oounoil held its regular weekly meeting, at which were discussed divers
matters ot general interest to the University a* a whole.
Tha minutes of the last meeting
Sere read by the secretary, Miss
lird, and as business arising therefrom it waa decided to grant permission to the Women's Undergraduate
moiety to hold a bridge in aid or the
HOme Economics Endowment Fund.
The date ot this event ha* in the
meantime been left open.
When the financial statement was
read, the opinion was expressed that
the expenses of the various organizations of the campus are mounting too
rapidly. It was stated that expenditures have beon increasing over revenue fOr the last five years, and In
Order to alleviate this situation the
members of the council are agreed
that the Alma Mater fee must be
raised next year to at least ten dollar*. In addition, the president delivered the ultimatum that all expenditure* for the next two weeks must be
out to the barest necessities.
,. It Is expected that the Tennis Club
In their forthcoming tournament with
the University of Washington will
make money. The arrangement is
that Varsity's team will pay their own
expense* while In Seattle, and our
Amerloan visitors will do the same
while here, From the point of view
of all concerned, this Is considered to
be a most advantageous arrangement.
, A letter of special Interest, stating
that McOlll and Toronto Universities
had both ratified the constitution of
the National Federation of Canadian
University Students, was received
from Mr. Davies of Alberta, secretary.
McOlll had beon causing some little
anxiety, but now that these two older
and well-established universities have
declared themselves in favor of the
Federation, It should gain much prestige, especially in the East.
The subject of a valedictory gift
from '27 was postponed a week a'nd
in the meantime the council members
are to think about the matter. So far
nothing really suitable has been suggested.
The Important question of the gymnasium was touched upon but it also
was laid over until the next meeting
when It. will be discussed more fully.
The council is fully aware of the seriousness of this matter and are going
to give to lt the attention which lt Is
so Imperatively demanding. As a last
word, before the meeting adjourned,
the president urged the necessity of
coming next Monday fully prepared to
meet the gymnasium problem squarely in the face.
SENIORS SECURE
VERLMVICTORY
"It Is to be regretted that advertising plays so large a part In modern
life," was the subject of a debate between the Senior* and Sophomores,
on Tuesday afternoon last at 3.30 p.m.
In Art* 108.
Rosa Tolmie and "Gerry" Stevens
upheld the affirmative for the Sophs
against Ralph Stedman and Dick Pills-
bury, who represented the Seniors.
Mr. Tolmle's arguments were presented in a straightforward, Interest-
MS manner, dealing especially with
the undermining Influence of modern
advertising in general art appreciation and aesthetic sense. Mr. Stevens
endeavored to prove that advertising
waa an economical failure.
Ralph Btedman, the first speaker
OA the negative, was outstanding. His
material was convincingly arranged
and preceuted In an extremely easy
aad humorous way. He refuted many
Of the arguments of the second speaker of the affirmative In showing the
oomparatlve beneficent results from
auoh extensive advertising.
HI* colleague, Mr. Pillsbury sup-
plejaented his material ln a natural
and also a convincing manner.
0. A. Allen and W. Gage acted as
Judges and gave their decision ln favor of Arts "87.
BILL TO AMEND
UNIVERSITYACT
Passes Second Reading
Reprinted from "Dally  Province"
of Feb. 10.
VICTORIA, Fob. 10.—Change* In
the administration of tho university,
particularly ln respect to the enforcement of discipline, are proposed in an
amending bill to the University Act
Introduced by Hon. Dr. McLean, minister of education, and given second
reading on Wednesday. Included In
the proposals are the creation ot a
faculty oounoil, students' council and
students' court*.
In explaining the provisions of the
bill. Hon. Dr. MacLean said that It
had been found that there was an
over-lapping of authority between the
Senate, which was charged with the
duty ot enforcing discipline by one
section of the act, and the members
of the faculty which, under another
section, also had disciplinary powers.
In order to clarify the situation It
was proposed, with the consont of all
branches of the university to set up
a faculty council which would be
composed of two members each from
the faculties ot arts, science antl
agriculture, and the president. This
body would have full disciplinary
powers.
In most large universities, he explained, It had been found that students' councils were beneficial to the
proper discipline ot the institutions.
Students at the University of B.C. had
established a council but lt had not
been officially reorganized. It was
now proposed to do so, as It was to
permit students' courts. These would
nsHist in enforcing discipline, hut no
students would be deprived of any of
their rights, '<eing permitted to appeal
to the faculty council.
SEATTLE H00PSTERS
DUE HERE ON 19th
The last Inter-colleglate basket-
hall game and the last basketball
dance will be staged on the night of
Saturday, February 19th, according to
an announcement made by Runs Robinson, president of the Men's Basketball Club.
On thnt evening the Settlor A men's
team will tangle with the Seattle Pa-
enlc College in what should prove to
he one of the best hoop matches oi
the year. Mveryoiu- who has kept in
touch with the progress ol ihe basketball learn knows what an immense
improvement the two games with the
Cnlverslty of Washington have
wrought In the squad. Combination
play, passing antl .shooting have all
been made much more polished because of the nuperlor team with which
the Varsity hoopsters were matched.
This was especially In evidence last
Saturday night when the Blue and
Oold kept the Rowing Club on the defensive throughout, because of the
surer play Varsity exhibited In all departments of the game. With the
team In Ito bent form there Is every
Indication of an exceedingly Interesting mutch against the Seattle Pacific
squad on the nineteenth
Besides this inter-colleglate event
there will be a Senior B and an Intermediate game on the same evening.
The Senior B team Is scheduled to
meet the Meralomas while the Intermediate game has not. yet been decided.
After the games the usual Jamboree
will be staged. In the opinion of
those who are authorities on such
matters, the Hoop Hops are tho beat
of Varsity dances. The atmosphere
at these shuffles Is delightfully Informal while the presence of guests
makes the festivities more festive,
The Collegiate Cut-In or Tag dance Is
heralded a* the most popular of recent terpHlt'horenn developments, dividing one dance into from two to
tan separate antl complete events
.      .0.      •
HARRIERS' RACE
The Harrier race, according to Curl
Barton, who Is sponsoring this event,
will be run off Wednesday afternoon,
February 18th, The results of the
race do not count towards the Governor's Cup, but It Is a matter of class
spirit to excel even ln those sports
where dtreot credit Is not given.
Requirements for
Pre-Medical at
U. of Toronto
Students of this University Intending Inter to enter the Faculty of
Medicine of some other University
have ofton boon In doubt as to what
standing will be required from them.
As regards the Faculty of Medicine
of the University or Toronto,,a communication recently received from
that institution removes all doubts
about requirements that U. B .C. stud-
onts may have had, tho communication says ln part:—
"We ate prepared to accept your
Junior Matriculation as outlined provided the marks obtained are 50'/,
or over.
"Junior Matriculation is not suffel-
ent, however, for admission to the
First Year of the Faculty of Medicine, wo demand of Ontario students
standing In English, Algebra, Geometry, Trigonometry and a foreign
language of Honor Matriculation.
Students from British Columbia must
be prepared to submit certificates of
your Senior Matriculation covering
those subjects, Ontario students who
do not remain ln the High School to
prepare for the Honor Matriculation
examinations but enter the Faculty of
Arts, are required to obtain complete
standing In First Yoar of that Faculty
and Include in their course the subjects above named. You will readily
understand that we must not give
your students any advantage over
our own. The British Columbia students, therefore, who chooses to take
the First Year work In the University of British Columbia rather than
your Senior Matriculation, must present certificates covering the complete First Year, including the above
named  subjects.
"Admission to the Second Year Is a
stage beyond this. The requirements
have been announced by the Council
ol the Faculty of Medicine ln the
following statement, which corresponds almost exactly with the Science
subjects outlined In your letter.

"Advertising In the Middle Ages"
was the aubject of an Interesting paper given at a meeting of the Society
of Thoth on Thursday noon by Scribe
R. A. Pllkington. The paper showed
careful preparation and considerable
knowledge of the subject.
"Advertising tn the Middle Ages
took a somewhat different form to
that of the present day," began the
speaker. "Owing to the lack of education amongst people of that period,
written notices were an Impossibility." Mr. Pllkington then traced the
gradual development of advertising.
The first form of advertising was the
branch of a tree, which wbb placed
in front or a building to Indicate that
It was an Inn. Heraldry was also a
form of advertising. For example,
the three balls, which are used at the
present time lo advertise a pawn
shop, were originally Indicative of the
House of Medici, the groat Florentine
money lenders.
The speaker delighted Ihe meeting
by his liberal use of humour and sa-
llre. "Compare," said he, "advertising slogans of the present day with
the subject matter of the Middle
Ages. We should have such phrases
as: 'St. George kills dragons, wild
beasts, and other vermin, to order.
Try him for quick relief from all
household  pests.' "
The next meeting of the Society
will be held Tuesday noon, Feb. 15th.
In Room A.201, A paper will be given
on "The Journalistic Aspect of the
Lively Arts." Other papers will be
arranged.
TRACK MEN TRAINING TO
BREAK ALL U.B.C. RECORDS
Varsity will have the itrongest track team in their history If the men now
turning out continue to show the form they have been in early season.
Coach Granger Is after a man who would like to learn to hurdle. The
weakness at the present lime Is a 120 yard high and 22C low hurlder. If
the men turn out, Granger will do the rest, The rest ot the squad la shaping
up ln great style and It Is golngto be a great task to pick the best men
when the eliminations come along. A candidate for hurdle honors should
be S feet 10 inches and weigh above 160 lbs. If the man 1* lighter It will not
he a drawback but It Is seldom that men of better than 6 feet 10 inches and
less than 100 lbs are strong enough to hurdle.
Never In the history of the University has the call for men produced auoh
a variety of talent. Five vaulters are out and all have mark* rangng from TO
feet or better. They will provide a great battle when the interclass meet
comes around. They are Parmley, Sc. '80; Stewart of Arts '181
Alpen Arts '29, winner of the InterclasB meet last year; Webster, runnei*
up tor the high school title last year and a member of Art* '80; and Elliott,
of Arts '27, runner up tor the Interclass meet last year,
In the Broad jump, Lovett of Arts 29, Shields of Art* '29, and Brown
of Sc. 30 are all capable of over 20 feet, and the battle will be a royal one.
The record of 19.9 will fly to the four wind*.
In the 100 and 220 yards Granger is
grooming Burgess, ot Art* 29, to carry
the major burden. He may also run
the 440 yards, and should he do so
the event may go to him if he make*
the showing he did at the last Waah«
lngton Relays. Charley Mottley ot
Arts '27 Is the big favorite, however*
due to his showing at the Western
Canada meet this fall and also hi*
mark of slightly above 52 seconds at
Tacoma last spring. He will also run
the 880 yards, In which event he
copped the Western Canada title last
fall.
In the 880 and mile the great favorite will be Harold McWilliams, Art*
'28. He turned ln a victory at Tacoma
and In the Interclass meet and also
ran brilliantly in the Washington Relays, Granger Is confident that thi*
season he will bettor by a large margin
his mile mark ot 4 minutes 38 second*
last spring, and also his 880 mark Of
2.03.8. These marks were made on
the same day. If he conoentrate*
this year on the mile he will do muoh
better,
Pat Taylor, Arts '29, winner of the
100 and 220 last year will leave thoe*
events this spring and go at the 440
and 880 yards. Granger believes that
with his tremendous stride and running ease he will be a hard man to
heat. Incidentally the quartet of Taylor, Burgess, Mottley and Molntyre
will give the team a first class mile
relay team.
In ths weight events four men are
looming up as strong candidates.
Shields although only 160 lbs,, looks
good to toss the ball 37 feet before
long. Pottlnger, Sc. 27, will be a
strong addition when he gets In form,

Value of Athletics is
Subject of Address
A rather small audience of men and
women students heard Captain Ian
Sinclair's address on "The Value of
Athletic' in Education," last Wednesday noon in Arts 100. Captain Sinclair
has lost both his hearing and sight,
and was thus under some disadvantage as a speaker but he won his audience by his intense earnestness.
Captain Sinclair outlined the
history of physical education and
showed how formal gymnastic exercises do not appeal to the masses because ot the lack of the play element.
It Is thus necessary to Introduce
games Into the curriculum, so that
physical exercise ahall be accompanied
by pleasure. Tho danger of strenuous
(tames, however, is that those who are
not physically fit may suffer greatly,
since moat games aro suited only to
persons of good physique.
Captain Sinclair also spoke of the
valuable characteristics of perseverance, kindness and honesty developed
In sports, and maintained that these
qualities make the inclusion of athletics necessary in educational
curricula. The spirit of play also may
be carried over to more serious pursuits antl the highest satisfaction of
any life—honest enjoyable work—U
thus possible. Athletics then furnish
one more step towards tho goal at
which all aim—the time when work
will be as enjoyable as play, but will
give much more permanent satisfaction.
In speaking of the program of athletics now being fought for In Canadian institutions of learning, Captain
Sinclair paid a great and splendid
tribute to the medical profession coworkers In this splendid work. "Without them," he said, "We could have
done nothing.
In his closing remarks Captain Sinclair made a plea for more workers In
thia field. He drew attention to Its
Importance as the basts of all life.
The country needs more men to work
towards good health for all. After a
few words of appreciation of the
audience and its attention, the speaker
brought his address to a close.
The meeting showed Its appreciation by a most enthusiastic burst of
applause. The earnestness cf the
speaker had held the attention of the
students to the last word. Mr. Tanny
Butler spoke shortly In thanks to
Captain Sinclair, and the meeting adjourned.

ARTS '20 RELAY COURSE ESTABLISHED
The executive of the Men's Athletio Association decided at its
Uat meeting to establish the course of the Arts '20 Relay between
Fairview as starting point nnd the present buildings as finishing
. park. We congratulate the executive upon a decision which is, we
are confident, as satisfactory to the students and Alumni of thia
University as it is pleasing to us.
ELECTIONS AND THEIR FRUIT
The literary and Scientific Department, presidency of which
carries with it a seat on the Students' Counoil, has so far failed in a
duty which is exclusively its own. According to its constitution, one
of its objeots is to bring public speakers to address the student body;
So far as we can remember, not one such speaker has been secured by
the department this year. Admitting that there are difficulties in the
way of the committee in charge, we cannot entirely excuse the de-
parment in its failure to continue the noon-hour meetings. These
were, in former years, of decided value to the students, and were
appreciated by them to the extent thnt a capacity audience greeted
every speaker who favoured the student body with an address.
* We might point out that periodical noon-hour meetings of this
nature have a secondary purpose, entirely apart from their effect of
suggesting to the students broader intellectual interests than the
curriculum provides. This secondary purpose is obviously that
desirable one of bringing the dismembered student body out of
remote hiding places in lab, hall or basement, and giving it a consciousness of itself en masse. We have heard mucli of the unfortunate state of dissection in which this body has survived upon the
new campus; and we suggest that those in authority have been
remiss in not providing means for it to come together.
It is somewhat perturbing to think that the Students' Council,
in session at least once a week, has evidently not seen to it that
the work of such an important body as the Literary and Scientific
Department was properly carried on. We suggest that the Council
take time at its next meeting to inquire whether the department in
question is making any progress toward resuming these noon-hour
meetings. And as a last suggestion, we give this: if there is no
possibility of such meetings being put on more or less regularly, the
Council should take steps to bring the student body together at
least once a month . In this way a desirable contact could be established between the students nnd the governing body, with, we make
bold to say, mutual benefit. The institution of these meetings mny
involve a minor change in the constitution of the Alma Mater Society,
but it is possible that the time has come Tor that change.
SUGGESTIONS FOR THE STUDENTS' COUNCIL
The grey goose yields up a quill with which we will pursue »
subject that is, as yet, but faintly "in the air"-- the subject, to be
brief, of student elections. When this topic makes its iinniini migration across these columns, we raise our eyes from the ink-horn ami,
marking its flight, are constrained to think that few students realize
its passage takes effect, not during the current year, but during the
one ensuing. We believe, also, that if the student, casting his vote,
remembered that the bread of his casting might come back a soggy
mess of weak executives, he would not, as he has done in the pant,
lightly throw his vote away.
The foregoing arises from our inclination to think that certain
student executives (not excepting the Students' Council) havo this
year been somewhat less than strong and also rather less than forward-looking. In our opinion, the responsibility for weakness in
student administration rests primarily with the two classes of electors,
those who visit the polls, and those who do not. It is obvious that the
privilege of suffrage makes obligatory the discriminating use of the
ballot, even if that use means only the spoiling of the vote; intentionally spoiled ballots often show a very high order of discrimination.
If students fail to discharge the obligation of proper use of the
franchise, they can look for nothing but weak administration in
executives, with resultant unsatisfactory conditions.
We are not unjust in remarking that the present Council is
weak; it is so, partly because one student in three voted at the last
spring elections; partly because a large proportion of those who
voted did so without dui consideration of their choice; nnd finally
it is so because, in great measure, its policy has been ono of masterly
inactivity in regard to progressive legislation. The remedy lies in
the ballot-box; electors must carefully consider, before nominating
candidates for office, tho probable effects on student administration
of the election of that candidate; and in the light of such consideration find guidance in the easting of their ballots.
THE LAST SHALL BE   -   -   -
Morning after morning tho University men stand aside until the
buses, crowded with women students, have left 10th Avenue and
Sasamat. Eventually they manage to squeeze into some odd corner
of a crowded bus and reach the lecture room and the perfectly justified wrath of a professor, some minutes after tho hour.
The present day women of tho University havo equal rights with
the men. If they share their privileges why should they not also
share their inconveniences If   Many of the women themselves, agree

Editor, the Ubyssey:
I noticed in your well-known sheet
the other day that some poor chap
has been having his clothing somewhat "battered."
For his Information and that of anyone else in the same fix, I would mention the fact that In the not so well-
known Applied Science building there
Is a locker room on the second floor
or the Biology wing, which contains
about a hundred lookers, unused.
This I* not the Science looker room,
and anyone who want* a locker here
can have one simply by putting a lock
on It, as In the Arts building. I would
advise freshmen not to be afraid of
tho odd Forestry man or Biology
nenlor he may see tn the offing—
they're really quite peaceable.
By the way, Mr. Editor, just what
are the arrangements tor "bouncing"
at the Senior Ball? Do they include
all outsiders, except class executives
and Faculty members? Or will the
sympathies of the committee be allowed to rule them?
Trusting  various  inquiring  minds
will be satisfied, I am,
Vours rtuly,
R. W. P1LLSBURY.

that it is hardly fair thnt the men should bo late as a result of their
politeness in giving up places in the bus queue. If, during the rush
hours, nil women would use the front doors nnd all men the back
doors of the buses, the seating accommodation and standing space
would be fairly equally divided. There would be no fear of either
the men or women making a violent rush to All the bus as the necessity
of putting in tickets is an admirable check.

This Is how it started. She came
to him through the draw.
As far as he knew at the time he
had never seen her before. So he
began to make many inquiries. As
usual many people proteased Ignorance and the ignorant used their Imaginations to paint pictures, some
exquisitely beautiful and lovely and

De that a* lt may, no one seemed

That evening he summoned up
enough- courage to whisper to Central

one Bald "hello" at the other end and
he timidly asked If Miss was
there. By good luck It was she who
was speaking. So sweet and alluring
was the voice that courage came back
to him. After a few seconds interval
he informed her that the gentleman

their conversation was that he was to
meet her at a particular place at a
certain time and from there they
would proceed to the tea rooms.
Next day at the appointed hour he

but had not gone very far when a
sweet voice asked him if he was

It was she!

He had spoken to her for the first

THE
PROBLEM
OF
DISTRIBUTION
Although the members of the "Ubys
ney" Editorial Board are not economists, they are nearly prostrated over
tho problem of distribution. The particular kind ot distribution is that of
their well known twioe-weekly effort
In the journalistic world,
The Circulation Managers, the Business Department and the Editors
swear by all that is holy that enough
"Ubysseys" are printed. The cupboards of the office are bare, and the
staff make great personal sacrifices In
their literature. And yet the Publications Offloe I* betelged day after
day by a clamoring mob, demanding
their oopy of the "Ubyssey." This is
enough to make the gods, and even
the Editor-in-Chief, weep!
Often the poor members of the staff
who carry tho bundle of papers to
the common rooms, are half-killed by
another howling multitude endeavoring to win their priced copies by a
pitched battle. Even the distributor
to the women's common room is
thinking of resigning.
At last, however, the mystery has
been solved. A Janitor has reported
that there are often piles of "Ubysseys" In the women's common room
that are absolutely unused! i I
The problem of distribution will be
solved as soon as the ladles agree to
take their "Ubyssey" from their common room, Instead of from the tables
ln the halls, and elsewhere.

U.B.C. v.. WASHINGTON
OARSMEN
Last Saturday, Kenny Thurston,
president of the Boat Club, and Phil
Walnman, captain of Boats, took a
trip to Seattle to Interview Coach
"Rusty" Callow, of University of
Washington. Aa a result of this, the
University of B.C.'s First VIII. will
row against Washington's First Freshman VIII., at Seattle on the 19th of
March.
High School-Varsity
Debates Suggested
A new departure ln debating haa
been undertaken by the Men's Literary Society by arranging for a Fresh-
mnn team to tour the various High
Schools In the city. Negotiations are
being made with King George, King
Edward, Prince of Wales, Technical.
Duke of f'oiiiiaiiKlit, Magee. Mrltannla.
Kitsllano, North Vancouver, t'orniner
cliil High Schools and Vancouver College. There is every Indication that
favorable replies will be received from
the majority of these Institutions, and
it is now assumed that a debate will
take place In the near future with representatives of the Prince of Wales
High.
The Freshmen are anxious to show
their old friends and rivals of a few
months ago that they have not forgotten them, and that thos"e few
months of university life have developed the ex-hlghschool boys Into
crack forensic artists. The debates
will give practise to Arts '30 that will
stand them In good stead ln their university debating career, and will also
sorvo as a valuable link between the
High Schools and the University of
U. C. Furthermore, these activities
will reveal and develop what platform
talent exists in Arts '81 and '32.

SENIOR 'B' MEN
BASKET A WIN
Ploying in the most brilliant form
that they have shown this season,
Varsity Senior B team just nosed out
the Adanacs Senior II squad Wednesday night at New Westminster 12—
11. The game was one ot the hardest
fought In the Senior B division this
year. Entering the game with four
straight wins to their credit, Varsity
was out to make the Btrong Adanacs
tho fifth team that has bowed to their
squad and they succeeded, This
makes a three-cornered He for flrst
pluee between Varsity, Ex Normal A
and Adauacs.
Half way through the first half the
Atlantis were leading 0—4, but Varsity pulled up at the half way mark
nnd was only 2 points In the rear.
In the last half every man played
like a whirlwind and hold tho Purple
crew to 2 points while they piled up
3 field baskets. Both sides checked
hard and fast. With » few minutes to
go tho team were one point behind,
but a brllllunt Held basket from
Thompson and the score stood 12-11
for Varsity,
The Varsity team was a follows:
Buckley, Swanson, 2 McKwun,
2 Thomson, McKwan 4, Straight 2,
Mclntyre 2, Maconnnchlo, McLean.

He runs very smoothly antl has
plenty of speed to carry him to the
front after a hard grind, ('.ranger
says that he runs as smoothly us the
great Cliarterls and should be a real
threat.
In tho high jump King of Arts '27,
and Hatfield of Arts '28 are going to
stage a great battle whon the judges
put lup the bar at the qualifying
height on March fl. King has a mark
of 6 feet 6 inches and Hatfield about
the same. They are both out to
come up to tho 8 foot mark thl« year
ant! everything points to their sue
cess. King uses the Sweeney roll and
Hatfield  tho Western  Roll.
In the two mile run Barton, Sc. '27,
will be the outstanding man duo to
his mark of 10:22 last year at Tacoma,
which was one of tho best times
turned In at the Northwest up to that
time. He Is out to heat 10 minutes
this year anil has been out since Hie
tint of the year. ' He will havo lots
of compeltloii from DesHrhtay of Arts
'29, winner of the Intercollegiate
three mile tryouts last year and a very
promising two mile man.
Granger Is on the track almost
every afternoon from 12 to 4 or 6, and
the big turnouts are held on Monthly,
Wednesday and Saturday afternoons,
since most of the men can get out at
those times. Jack Buchanan Is keeping the track In fine condition and
the sawdust ln tha pits will help considerably, Jack deserves a lot of
credit for the way he haa kept things
this winter.
Ruggers to Clash
With Meralomas
The first game of the Intermediate
Rugby League Is scheduled for Saturday ln McBrlde Park when Varsity
meets tho Meralomas. The Varsity
gridiron squad has been at work almost daily for a month, and Is therefore ln pretty fair condition; though
the men lack that, experience and
knowledge of the fundamentals that
come only from actual playing. The
Meralomas havo a more experienced
team, and may be expected to display
a little more finish.
In actual ability and material no
team in tho league can be said lo have
tho edge on Varsity. The team is of
a good average weight, nearly every
man being within ten pounds of a
hundred and sixty. It Is certain that
alter a game or two and a little more
practice, the Intermediates should develop into a team equal to any of ItB
weight In tho city.
One commendable feature of this
team Is that so many of Its members
are new to the game, and, Indeed, new
to any form of Rugby. While there Is
no space to mention each man Individually, remark must be made ou
Camozzl, Mitchell, Smith, Miller and
Dawson ln the line. Moscrop and Hall
are expected to be on the Hold In
the second game. Parker, of hockey
tame; Straight, active in basketball
and soccer, and Dunham are expected
to do excellent work in the backfleld.
Cece Helmer will captain the team
from the quarterback position.
Altogether It is as promising a
squad as the Canadian Rugby Club
has yat had, and If the team works
hard and regularly, It should make a
good showing for Varsity In Canadian
Rugby circles.
Fairview to Varsity
for Relay Course
Last Tuesday noon In Arts 100, a
poorly attended meeting discussed and
fought over, once more, the question
of the Arts '20 Relay CourBe. The
turnout was less than half the number
which attended the original meeting
on January 28th, when a motion was
carried that the race should be run
as of yore, namely, from Point Orey
to Fairview.
The meeting on Tuesday was the
result of a request by the executive
of the Men's Athletic Association,
thnt the decision previously arrived
nt, which had proved so eminently unsatisfactory to many people, be reconsidered,
The meeting was called to order by
Mr. Frank Elliott, who expressed a
doubt as to whether the attendance
was siilflclently large to reconsider
Ihe question. Mr. Charlie Mottley
strongly recommended that, In consideration of the small turn out, the
subject he dropped, but Mr. David
Warden's motion that the question
lie discussed by the present meeting,
was  passed.
There was tor a Mine a doubt and
uncertainly as lo the stnntling of Hie
llr-it decision, anil ihe authority of ihe
liic'.eiii meeting to reconsider It. Mr.
Miitt|e> staled that the decision of the
former meethiK had been merely a
recommendation, made hy the students to Ihe Men's Athletic Association.
Mr. Maxwell spoke at length, and
explained that coaches considered
Mint a reversal ol the old direction,
by making some of the men run uphill, would seriously handicap these
runners In other races. Mr. Maxwell
asked for the question to be left to
the Track Club to decide. It was
llnnlly agreed to abide by the decision of Ihe Men's Athletic Association.
A recommendation, which was passed
by a large majority of those present,
was that the race be run from Fair-
view to Point Orey.

In a few more weeks the great task
of selecting athletic executives at the
university will be under way and, if
some action is not taken Immediately,
the mistakes of previous years will
be repeated. The various organisations on the campus are, with a few
exceptions, poorly managed. The
trouble is evident. Men who play on
a basketball or rugby team or are on
the swimming or track team, are
placed on executives. That is all
wrong, Such men know when they
take over the olllce that they will not
do justice to the position, hut they
flutter themselves that thoy have the

is poorly managed, und (hoy lose Interest, This Is one of the few universities that has not the system of

PLAY THAT PARTICULAR SPORT.
That cannot be over emphasized nnd
tho sooner the change Is made the
more efficient will becomo tuir athletic system. Some »ports will not
take the hint this year while others
will. Don't Imaglho because you play
basketball or rugby that you are the
right man for an executive position
In that sport, You may excel In the
game but your business ability may be
on a par with that of tho buyer of
poor nil stock.
There In an example for our nail In
this university at tho present time,
Undoubtedly swimming would he one
of the doadeMt sport* ut Hit) University
If It had not adoptod the non active
manager systotn. Dullon Allan has
been one of I' e greatest hooMturs of
tho aquatic game around this campus,
He has gone out lu tho morning and
chased up ton now paid-up mem hers,
What active partlclpiitlng manager
would have the tlmo to do that?
There aro lots of men who would only
be too anxious to undertake the
managership of truck or soccer or
rugby. The Idea that each executive
Hhould consist of a President, »|ce-
president, secretary and treasurer and
a few honorary officers is all wet. Olio
man with an advisory council of piny
Ing members Is far more I'ttlcleiil,
Quick action Is necessary In any sport,
Again thu argument is put up Hint
men cannot he found who will undertake the tanks demanded without
letter considerations. If such men
were considered strong enough to
carry an executive position ihey are
deserving of some recondition. If
they went with the team on all the
trips It would he remuneration enough
for their services. Later on lh«
managerial recognition system may he
udopted, but until then th"se men
would be content to uiitlurtuke tholr
duties without some award Think It
over and line up a prospect early.
