Mr. IVBurnett Gives Valuable
Collection for Point Grey
Hideous tatooed skulls, unearthed
from dingy caves of native chiefs or
ruins of ancient cities, and horrible
pronged forks that have pricked the
savory flesh of many an unfortunate
whiteman, together with several
thousands of other weird and pretty
curios gathered from the barbarous
tribes of the south seas will decorate
the walls of a prominent building at
Point Grey next year when Mr. Frank
Burnett presents his marvelous museum, now at 4698 University Ave., to
this institution.
The board accepted this unique collection under the condition that a
suitable home should be erected for
it, and that it should be classed as a
separate exhibit from the actual
Mr. Burnett, who has lived in this
city for the past thirty years, commenced his series of ten voyages
while a resident of Montreal. The
Laurel, a sailing vessel of eighty tons,
carried him to all parts of the globe,
including Borneo, Malaya, Sumatra and
South America. He had many exciting adventures and in one or two cases
risked his life to secure a good specimen of native handicraft.
The collection contains a number
of oddities that will delight the eye
of many a 'Varsity Miss and some also
that will make their blood run cold.
There are beautifully designed baskets, woven by the dusky maidens of
the trophies; ancient strings of beads
from lake Titicaca, ivory images, suits
of native armour; rare beasts and

For the past three weeks Varsity's
hardworking track men have been turning out daily under their experienced
coach, Jack Buchanan, getting themselves into shape tor the inter-collegiate and inter-class meets, on the 18th
and 29th of this month, respectively.
It is their hope to send a full team to
Edmonton this year, consisting of a
coach and eight men, and judging by
the performances they are turning in,
they should make a very creditable
showing. The cost of the undertaking
will be partly met by the Students'
Council, and the remainder will be
raised next week. Monday and Tuesday will be tag days; tags will be
twenty-five cents apiece, and their purchase will entitle students to admission to the annual inter-class meet,
which will be held on the 29th. It is
expected that every student will purchase one of these tags, and so help
send the boys to Edmonton.
New Form ofUiutiation Successfully Introduced.
President Klinck and Student Leaders Speak
"I do hereby solemnly promise to
honor my Alma Mater and observe her
laws and traditions, and at all times
to conduct myself so as to reflect
credit on my University, both as re-
sards my studies and in my attitude
to the faculty and to my seniors."
A new tradition has been formed at
U. B. C. for freshmen to follow next
year. Hazing has been abolished at
Varsity after a fair trial, and in its
place the students have put some other
form of Initiation. The plans this year
were prepared by a special committee
working with the Students' Council,
and it is believed by the majority of
the students, the Faculty and the Board
of Governors, that with a little more
elaboration next year they will form
an Initiation ceremony really worth
while. Student leaders, as well as Dr.
Klinck, are highly pleased with the
Those seniors who remained in the
Auditorium for the whole ceremony
only saw part of the happenings of
Thursday night, for students who were
at the College for a good time grouped themselves in the Chemistry, Physics and Biology lecture rooms, where
the Freshies were entertained * while
each section, two hundred in number,
was taken to the Auditorium.
Student leaders from the Council
spoke on athletics and other college
activities, urging the Frosh to balance
social,  sport,  and  study activities  so
that the best possible result could be
obtained from the college curriculum.
Brick McLeod, Parsons and Yell
King Bishop put the Frosh through
their college yells, while the members
of '28 themselves were forced to entertain one another with song, dance
and acting. The group assembled in
the Chemistry Lecture Room was perhaps the most lively and well behaved
section, and those in that room were
the feature entertainers for the night.
Warning had been given to the senior students that if they expected to
see hazing they would be disappointed.    Few appeared dissatisfied.
The ceremonial part of the Initiation
was simple. Freshmen were brought
ten at a time to the Auditorium platform, where Dal Grauer, President of
the Alma Mater Society, asked them
to repeat their oath. He called each
by name and shook the hand of every
Freshman and Freshette.
Then, after all had passed, the Frosh
were again brought to the Auditorium,
where Dr. Klinck and Mr. Grauer
spoke to them on the oath they had
Not only is hazing losing its hold
in Canadian universities, hut the manhandling of Freshmen is also going out
of style in U. S. A. colleges. The universities over the whole continent are
looking for something new, and it is
probable that the Initiation ceremony
adopted here will soon be found in
many of them.
Try-Outs For Oxford
Debate Under Way
Biggest Undertaking of the
Session Claims Attention
of Would-be Debaters
There is no doubt that the Oxford
Debate will prove one of the greatest
events of the University Session 24-25.
There seems to be, however, a great
many conflicting ideas as to the details
and it is hoped that these statements
from the Debates Manager, James
Craig, will answer all questions and
dispel all doubts.
The attendance at the "tryouts" on
Wednesday was of the best. By Friday evening the selection of the five
most promising speakers should be
complete, and if so, intensive training
will begin at once. The team, however, will not be chosen until some
later date.

(Bookstore Committee
Reports Summer Work
The question of the sale of the bookstore to the A.M.S., which has been up
before the Students' Councils for some
years, has at last materialized in the
appointment of a committee composed
of Miss Elsie Rilance, Mr. Art Laing
and Mr. Lyle Atkinson to deal with the
matter. They were given the power
at a joint meeting of the last two
Councils on April 29th, to make the
necessary arrangements for the purchase of the bookroom and to have it
in working order by fall.
To obtain all the information possible on the subject, the committee
corresponded with the leading universities who have the system of student-
control of the sale of books, and Mr.
Atkinson and Mr. Grauer visited the
University of Washington. It was
found that this system has proven
successful in almost all cases. On the
Pacific Coast every university, with
the exception of Stanford and U.B.C,

First-Division Soccer Squad
Defeated  7—1  Last
Seven to one sounds more like a
rugby than a soccer score, yet that was
the count at Con Jones' Park on Saturday, when the Varsity first soccer
team got the worst drubbing in their
history at the hands of the Vancouver
City eleven. The students were outplayed in every department, and the
City pigskin artists fully deserved
their victory, as they dished up a fine
brand  of  football.
As this is the first game for the
Blue and Gold they should not be too
severely criticized for their play, but
as witnessed from the stands it certainly was a pitiable exhibition. From
whistle to whistle it seemed as though
there were three Vancouver men to
one Varsity, and the students were seldom, if ever, in the picture during the
entire fracas.
From the outset the City took the
lead when Bob Forgie, their hustling
center, passed all too easily through
the Collegians' defence and beat King
with a fast low shot that gave the new
Varsity goalie no chance to get in line
After a few more minutes of play,
Charlie Stuart caught the U. B.C. defence napping, and netted the pigskin
before King had time to move. The
third goal came near the end of the
half, when Forgie passed Crute, who
stood and watched him go by, and sent
in a scorcher that no goal tender in
the world could have saved.
With only a few minutes to go, Bobby Jackson raised the hopes of his
team-mates when, after some neat foot
work, he scored Varsity's one and
only goal. The interval came with the
City leading 3—1.
Upon resumption of play, Vancouver
continued on the offensive and scored
through Macdonald and Howden, the
former notching two and the latter
getting one to his credit. The seventh
goal coming as a misunderstanding between Crute and King.
Although there is no doubt whatever
that the team missed Mosher, in fairness to King it must be stated that the
Varsity defence afforded him little protection. The Varsity backs either left
the goal wide open so that the oncoming forwards could get in close to King,
or else they got in his way when he
was trying to clear. The new goalie
showed great promise and with a little
practice the young North Vancouver
star will be ranked among the best
net-minders in the division.
Varsity halves were off form. Phillips worked hard, but was not his
usual self by a long way. The wing
halves were woefully weak in placing
the ball and in sticking on their wing
men, as well as feeding their own forwards.
The Varsity vanguard were seldom
dangerous, although they might have
scored on several occasions if they
had showed better judgment in shooting. Wilkinson at center never got

Varsity's First Game
Freshman Reception
Everybody had a wonderful time at
the Freshman Reception held last Friday in Lester Court. There was, of
course, the traditional crush, but the
pained expression, after a bump,
changed in record time to a smile at
the sight of so many Freshies (?) enjoying themselves. The latter wore
green ribbons and an air of mystery,
caused by wonderment at the elusive-
ness of dance partners in general.
However, the loss did not seem irreparable, for either by the help of the
Reception Committee, or by the ingenuity and resourcefulness of the
Freshmen, the difficulty was soon removed. A specially pleasing feature
of the dance was the total lack of formality, which was more in evidence
than in any preceding year.
The mellow strains of Lee's "little
boys" caused a peculiar itchiness of
the feet, which constituted an inner
voice not to be silenced even by repeated painful digs on the instep by
narrow, sharp heels. Miss Hansford's
refreshments sustained her good reputation for catering—there were the
loveliest cakes, coffee and ice cream.
The patrons and patronesses included President and Mrs. Klinck, Dean
Bollert, Dean and Mrs. Coleman, Dean
and Mrs. Brock, and Dean and Mrs.

into his stride, and Huestis seemed to
have difficulty in putting the ball in
the right place. Jackson, considering
his wrenched leg, played better soccer
than any of them; although Rex Cameron worked hard, he did not combine
as well as he might have with the
other forwards. Emery put in one or
two nice crosses, but lacked control.
This is Varsity's first game, and after they get going they will doubtless
do better, but the soccer men are in
for a hard year and everyone connected with the club, players and supporters alike, will have to get busy individually and collectively to boost the
chances of the team.
The result of this game clearly
shows that the students are out of
practice, and also that the opposition
is stronger than ever this year. The
soccer men are not down-hearted, however, and this Saturday they are out
to redeem themselves at the expense
of the  Longshoremen.

Teachers Discuss
y       Payment of Fees
The question of just what position
the members of the Teacher's Training
Course should hold in relation to the
University is at present dividing this
otherwise amiable class. The burning question with Ed. '25 is whether
it is better to pay the seven dollars
Alma Mater fee, and thereby enjoy
all the duties and privileges of undergrads, including a right to participate in Student activities, use of the
Auditorium, the Ubyssey, the Annual,
tickets to the Christmas Plays, and
some representation on the Council—
or to sever official connection with the
Alma Mater society, thus making a
clear distinction between the Educational Faculty and the undergraduate
classes. Since the course is yet in the
making, and subject to change each
year, no permanent standing on this
matter was taken by last year's class,
save a temporary arrangement for the
On behalf of the Student's Council,
Mr. H. B. Smith interviewed the members of Ed. '25 on Thursday afternoon.
After some discussion, a committee
was appointed to meet the Council,
and come to a definite understanding.
The class is willing to pay for privileges received, but is anxious to ascertain just what these will be.

are working at full speed on the different details, and it is up to every

has a successful student-owned bookstore. A consultation was held with
Mr. Dallas, who stated possible terms
under which the store could be taken
over. These terms were approved by
the Bookstore Committee and also by
the Faculty Committee • on Student
This university bookstore has been
quite inadequate to meet the needs of
a rapidly increasing student body. The
loss of time in the line-up at the book-
room wicket and the necessity, of having to go down town for minor supplies, such as notebooks and stationery, could be eliminated by the control
of the bookstore by the A.M.S. The
problem of buying and selling secondhand books could be solved and a
more satisfactory arrangement made
for all concerned.
An idea of the extent of the business carried on by the bookstore can
be given in the statement that up to
now, although the season is not yet
over, there has been a sale of books
amounting to some eight or nine thousand dollars. The responsibility which
the A.M.S. would be undertaking in
the purchase of the bookstore is a
heavy one. Yet the system of student
operation has great possibilities and
decided advantages and is worthy of
the serious consideration of the student body.
The Musical Society is looking for
a further increase in membership,
there being vacancies in both the Glee
Club and the Orchestra. Applicants
should apply to Mr. Grant, the Conductor, at any of the practices.
The Glee Club practices on Tuesdays
and Thursdays, at noon in the Auditorium, and the Orchestra, unless fur
ther notice is given, on Mondays and
Wednesdays, at noon, at St. George's
The success of the season, now confidently expected after last year's
achievements, depends largely on the
interest shown by the student body,
and all who have any inclinations towards music are urgently requested to
come forward.

Saturday Evening
Private Lessons by Appointment
Seymour 1689
The   LESTER   Academy
Varsity first team soccer men showed how high is their regard for Mosher
by electing him as Captain for the
year, even though he may not be with
the team until well on in the season.
Heggie is in a class by himself when
it comes to net-minding, but it was
not for this reason alone that the Varsity star was elected Captain. Mosher
has endeared himself to the hearts of
players and fans alike while playing
between the posts for Varsity. His
cheerful manner stands him in good
stead now, for he has had his leg
broken and reset on four occasions.
The Inter-collegiate meet at Edmonton is one weeK earlier than was figured on by TJ. B. C. track officials,
and will now take place on October
18, according to the letter received
from the secretary of the W. I. C. A. TJ.
This announcement has caused the
trackmen to redouble their efforts to
reach the top of their form for the
prairie meet.
Peter Demidoff broke the inter-collegiate pole vault record unofficially
last Friday, when he cleared the bar
at 10 feet 4 inches; the W. I. C. A. TJ.
record, which was made at Saskatoon
last year, being 10 feet 1 inch. Demidoff should be a safe bet for this year's
track team, which is going to Edmonton in a couple of weeks.
Page Bobby Jackson, who scored
Varsity's first goal this year, after being out for practically a whole season
with a wrenched knee. Even now his
knee is weak, but that didn't prevent
him from being the pick of the Varsity
forwards on Saturday. Bobby made
several game attempts to come back
last year without avail, but he seems
to have accomplished it now, and his
team-mates elected him Captain pro
tern until Mosher gets back.
Even though unable to play last year
Bobby used to hang around the dressing room handing out words of encouragement to his team-mates, and
both his and Mosher's election to the
job of skipper will meet with favor
to all those fans who have followed
the round ball game at TJ. B. C.
The result of Saturday's first division soccer game shows the need of a
coach, one who knows the game and
will turn out on every occasion. A
coach with such qualifications could
be given absolute power to pick the
team, although of course he might
take advice from other officials of the
"Too many cooks spoil the broth,"
and the Soccer CIud will find out to
their sorrow that if they have several
good men, running things, who all
know the game and yet have conflicting ideas, that they will get nowhere.
Nothing disorganizes a team so much
as changing line-ups. It may be necessary at the beginning of the year. But
even at the end of the season last
year, the Varsity soccer men were
changing their line-ups with disastrous
Selection committees are all right in
theory, but in actual practice they are
a failure because they are unwieldy.
A good coach is the solution to the
trouble, and the Soccer Club would
be better advised to spend the money,
that they intend to lay out for the use
of one end of Bob Brown's park, for
paying a coach for Wednesday afternoons, even if they have to use some
old school ground to play on.
'Second Soccer Wins
The University third division team
was the only one to carry the Blue and
Gold to victory on Saturday. The
game was played at Heather Park
against the Chinese students, resulting
in a 4-2 score.
The Chinese won the toss and elected to p.ay with the sun in their eyes in
the first half. Play opened briskiy
with the Chinese testing "Flee" Sutherland in a few seconds. The ball
went from end to end, the Varsity
halves playing brilliantly and the
Chinese backs kicking effectively. In
about fifteen minutes Hee Cant, after
making an opening, passed to Alsbury,
who scored on a nice first-time drive.
The Orientals came back strongly after this reverse but the U.B.C. halfbacks, Gibbard, Reid and Demidoff,
broke up their attack and passed neatly to their forwards. Their efforts
were often nullified by offsides, Fanning at outside right being the chief
offender. After a nice rush down left
wing Max Evans centered to Newcombe, who shot wide on a fine opportunity. Shortly afterwards Reid put
in a bullet shot from twenty-five yards
out which fooled the opposing goalie
The students switched their lineup,
putting Gooey in centre and Quen inside right, and made a number of quick
rushes. The Varsity backs were slow
in clearing and were only saved by the
halfbacks. Finally the Chinese scored
on a cross from left wing which Sutherland, attempting to clear, threw to
the opposing centre's head who
promptly placed the ball in the net.
Halftime blew soon afterwards.
The second half opened with rush
after rush by the Chinese, some poor
kicking by the College backs, and
two good saves by Sutherland. Soon
the U.B.C. halves began to get the
ball again and the forwards threatened
but were always pulled up by Referee
Clifton for offside. At last Fred Newcombe broke through and scored. Play
went from end to end in which the
Chinese centre and Reid featured.
Reid often outwitted the whole Chinese halfback line before passing the
ball. Half way through the second
half Max Evans put in a long, high,
cross which Newcombe converted with
a splendid header, making the score
4-1. The Orientals seemed to lose
their pep, and when they did come
down Hunter and Warden, who had
at last found themselves, relieved
with some long-distance kicking. Just
before time the Chinese ended the
scoring with their second goal, making the final count 4-2.
The U.B.C. from their game on Saturday should make a good showing
this year for the Chinese are a very
fast and extremely tricky team. They
were best served by their centre, inside right, and leftback, but appeared
weak at centre half, thus permitting a
good deal of midfield play between
Reid, Cant,- Newcombe, and Alsbury.
Incidentally, at least seventy-five
Chinese were out yelling their heads
off for their team, while U.B.C. had
three supporters, one of these being
the crippled Heggie. The team lined
up as follows: Sutherland; Warden
and Hunter; Gibbard, Reid and Demidoff; Fanning, Newcombe, Cant. Alsbury and Evans.

Since the beginning of the term the
Freshmen have had advice dinned into
their ears from all quarters as to which
student activities they should participate in, with an added warning against
joining too many societies at the cost
of graduating at Christmas. In spite
of this there are a great many who
have not identified themselves with
any activity, and who intend to devote
their whole time to study and monotonous routine, consequently losing
some of the great advantages to be
gained  from college life.
University activities are sufficiently
diversified to satisfy all tastes. For
those interested in debating or public
speaking, there are the Literary Societies, which, among other things,
train students for the international debates. U. B. C. has so far more than
held its own in such contests, and it is
up to the incoming students to carry
on in the same manner. The Players'
Club and the Musical Society give ample scope for those who have histrionic
or musical ability, and the "Ubyssey"
always welcomes hints or contributions from students with journalis'tic
or literary talent.
However, for those who prefer more
physical recreation, there are the numerous branches of athletics. The
rugby and soccer teams have in the
past made a name for themselves and
for the University; and track events
will probably come more than ever
into prominence this year under the
capable supervision of Coach Jack
Buchanan. These are but a few of the
major branches—but it is not our intention to summarize the handbook.
It is our wish to stir up an honest
enthusiasm among the students, and
to point out to those who are engrossed with term essays and examinations,
and who think they have no time for
recreation, the value of participation
in at least one student activity.
There are four rugby teams, three
soccer elevens, four basketball quintettes, and teams in every popular
branch of sport, which can absorb all
the athletic talent at Varsity and still
need more. This being the case, it is
almost unbelievable that any Varsity
athlete would sign up for another club
and play against his team-mates, when
he knows his Alma Mater needs his
services. Unfortunately this has been
done, and is still being done at U.B.C.
Such a man is bound to make himself intensely unpopular and he merits such unpopularity, especially when
his team-mates know that he is good
enough to play, say, on the second
team, but not quite equal to first team
standards. The selection committee
or the coach would put him on the
first team line-up if he were of the
right calibre. His action in signing up
with an outside team rather than play
on the second or third team, is childish and petty, and, further, it is disloyal. Any Varsity athlete guilty of
such an offence should be kept out of
all other student activities. Selfishness is his creed, and he has not entered into the true spirit of our Alma

The Student Body of this University
has every reason to feel proud of the
success of the entirely new form of
initiation which was introduced this
year. While there may be individual
students who are dissatisfied, because
they believe that the execution of the
Initiation ceremonies by the senior
year has robbed them of their customary privilege, they must realize that a
break in the old hazing custom had to
be made before conditions grew intolerable; in the past three years, under
a modified hazing system, initiation
became, with a constantly increasing
freshman class, more of a farce each
session. That the outside public is
strongly behind the Students' Council
in its stand for the abolition of hazing
is evidenced by the following editorial
which appeared in the Daily Province
of Saturday, October. 6th:
"The students of the University of
British Columbia are to be congratulated upon their decision to abolish
the hazing or 'ragging' of freshmen
and to subject the newcomers, instead,
to a dignified exhortation of the duties
and privileges of new allumni. It has
long been felt that hazing provides no
true test of character or of fortitude
under trying circumstances, whatever
small value it may have had as a test
of temperament. On the other hand,
the records of the world's universities,
both old and new, are replete with instances where hazing has had disastrous results upon students, who, before being permitted to get down to
the serious business of preparation for
their careers have been compelled to
take a pre-graduate course in buffoonery.
Hazing is not in any way consonant
with the dignity of university students
who have reached the sophomore
stage and are on the high road to
graduation. Freshmen naturally look
to them for a lead in matters relating
to university etiquette and that intangible thing called 'good form'; it is not
well that the understanding and sympathy which should exist between
senior and junior students at universities should be jeopardized by a system
of 'ragging,' which is quite out of harmony with the high matters which a
university  stands  for."
Keep Saturday afternoon for., the

A meeting of all Varsity women interested in sports, will he held on Thursday at 12 o'clock, in Boom Z.
In an article entitled, "How About
the College?" in a recent number of
a popular periodical, Edward W. Bok
writes: "The lack of a college education means, too, a loss of that most
valuable asset of college opportunity—
systematic mental training. It is the
quality of thinking which most strikingly differentiates the college graduate from the  non-collegiate man."
Surely after reading this we can be
pardoned if we straighten our tie a
bit, slick back our hair, and elevate
our head a trifle. We so seldom read
such things.
We knew, though, what the college
has been doing for us all the time.
We've been telling it to the folks and
explaining it in detail to everybody.
But they all said that colleges did not
teach us to think. And now the
author of the "Americanization of Edward Bok" has told the people the
truth.    We are vindicated.
Yes, that's a paragraph to cut out
and send home, or to keep in our
wallet to flash upon some debater who
would argue about things collegiate.
Let's read it again. ". . . that most
valuable asset of college opportunity
. . ." Still, there's that word opportunity." Better not read it to any
one but ourselves, because we might
find some one mean enough to insinuate that we are not making the most
of our opportunity.
A meeting was held last Thursday
afternoon for those interested in obtaining stack-room permits. The chairman, Mr. T. W. Brown, outlined the
conditions on which Mr. Ridington has
very kindly consented to grant these
this year:
Graduate Students (in "Education," including only those proceeding
to M.A. degree.—One-half day and one
night per week.
4th Year Honors (Arts, Science and
Agriculture).—One-half day and one
evening per week.
3rd Year Honors.—One evening per
4th Year Pass.—One evening per
week, for limited period, on personal
application of a professor to the librarian.
Mr. Ridington then addressed the
meeting. He explained that it was owing to the overcrowded conditions, the
slackness of some students in observing the stack-room regulations, and
the irreparable loss of about $1,200
worth of books, that he had at first
been dubious about issuing any permits this year. But realizing the importance of reference work to honor
students, and wishing to co-operate
with them in their work, Mr. Ridington finally devised the above'plan. He
was willing to issue permits according
to it, if a committee would appoint
student supervisors to take charge of
the stack-room in the evenings and
undertake to guarantee that all regulations would be strictly enforced.
The committee has appointed the
supervisors, and permits will now be
Pres. Klinck Speaks
on Student Religion
Speaking at the Fairview Baptist
Church Sunday night, October 5th, Dr.
L. S. Klinck stressed the fact that the
Student Christian Movement is responsible for the unusual prominence of religious ideals among the students of
Canadian universities. Dr. Klinck discussed the religion of the campus,
dealing with all stages and states of
mind undergone by the student in his
religious development.
Rev. A. S. Lewis, pastor, also addressed the congregation on the subject of the importance of friendship
and idealism to the proper development of religious life.
An exceptional turnout of students
was present at the service and some
very fine music was rendered.

There will be a meeting of the boxing club in the Physics Lecture Room
today at noon. All those who are in-
. terested in the "manly art" are requested to attend and get the club
off to a good start. Much talent has
been uncovered in previous years and
the executive want to make the coming session the peppiest yet.
In the Student Handbook a mistake
was made concerning the officers of
the club; the president is Tommy
Louden, Sc. '26, not R. D. Greggor as
was stated.
Jock Lundie will again play center
forward for Varsity soccer team, at
least during the absence of Tommy
Wilkinson. According to all reports,
Jock has been playing a bang-up game
for Collingwood this year, and his
sharpshooting ability should stand the
students  in  good  stead  this  season.
If you are not able to make a team
you can show college spirit by helping
to rub-down the boys who are playing
the game. There are vacancies for a
number of men who are willing to
work for their Alma Mater. If you are
willing to support the Varsity teams,
see Robbie McLean, Arts '25, Rugby
trainer; Allan Jones, Sc. '28, or F.
Sparks, Arts '25, soccer trainers.
Somebody remarked that Tanny
Butler and Les Buckley were the only
two Varsity first soccer men that were
any good on Saturday, because they
didn't play.

Net Tournament
Well Under Way
The annual Varsity tennis tournament started last week, with an entry
list larger than last year, and, weather
permitting, the finals should be reached by Saturday. Although the courts
have been rather heavy for any very
brilliant play, yet the matches have
been sufficiently interesting to keep
the spectators' benches well filled.
The matches should be well worth seeing during the next day or two when
the semi-finals and finals are reached.
In the men's singles, both Hincks
and Shields, last year's finalists, are
entered and it is expected that, unless some dark horse upsets the dope,
they will fight it out together for the
right to challenge Lorimer Baker, the
present champion. Shields has been
winning consistently, defeating Calvert, 6-2, 6-2, and Berts, 6-1, 6-1.
Other interesting results are: —
Men's singles—Gretton defeated
Richmond, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4; Lamont defeated Matheson, 6-2, 6-2.
Men's doubles—Bull & Wilkinson
defeated Nun & Larsen, 6-4, 6-2;
Painter & Grauer defeated Gretton &
Noble, 7-5, 6-3; Shakespeare & Seed
defeated Godfrey & Atkinson, 6-4, 3-6,
Ladies' singles—Miss Meredith defeated Miss Gard, 6-0, 6-2; Miss Mac-
Graw defeated Miss Yates, 6-3, 6-2;
Miss Strauss defeated Miss Russell,
6-4, 6-2.
Ladies' doubles—Misses Hemsworth
& Greig defeated Misses Russel &
Jones, 6-1, 6-1, and Misses Clarke &
McKenzie, 6-4, 6-4; Misses Meredith
& Newcombe defeated Misses Milner
& Hallamore, 6-2, 6-2.
Basketball All Set
For a Banner Year
\ /
I This year Varsity will again enter
four men's teams in the Vancouver
and District Basketball league, the
Senior "A", Senior "B", intermediate
"A" and intermediate "B".
Most of last year's players will be
back again. All have been working
hard so far to get into condition.
Jack Buchanan the trainer has an excellent record at the University of
Alberta and under his guidance all the
players will be in the best of condition for the opening game. Ross Bryson, with fifteen years or so of playing experience with championship
teams, will certainly make a fine coach
for the Senior ''A" team. With the
talent available this year all four
teams should make a strong bid for
the championship. Nothing definite
has yet been announced, but it is expected that by next week the teams
will be chosen and the practices will
be regular.
Another interesting feature is the
international competition which is being arranged for this year. There will
be several games with Bellingham,
Victoria and other cities. Taking
everything into consideration, indications are particularly bright for another very successful season.

Each year the interest that women
are taking in University athletics is
increasing and they are keener to take
part in the different athletic activities.
This is manifested by the growth of
the various clubs already in existence
and also by the founding of new ones.
Last year the Track Club was formed
and there was some talk of fencing
and ice hockey. The Track Club hopes
to gain a creditable standing in women's athletics. This year it is fortunate enough to have Mr. Jack Buchanan, former Alberta University
track coach, as trainer.
The Swimming Club will resume its
activities on Wednesday, October 8th.
Members are to be divided into classes
according to achievement, there being
separate sections for beginners, teamwork, diving and life-saving. This
year the club has obtained the services of Mr. Bruce McDonald, well-
known varsity swimmer, as coach.
Anyone desiring to join this club can
obtain information from Miss Sylvia
Thrupp, president.
The Gymnasium Club held its first
session at St. George's Church, Laurel
and Fourteenth, on Monday afternoon
at 4:15. A dozen girls turned out and,
under the able instruction of Miss M.
Gordon, went through a set of exercises which would be an excellent test
of the physical standard of any girl.
Miss Gordon is brisk, thorough and
right up to the minute in her work.
The class finishes its strenuous drill
with some light dancing exercises. All
of the work is done to music, Miss
Nan Craven assisting at the piano.
On Saturday evening, October 4th,
those interested in Women's Basketball turned out to practice at the Normal Gym. After two hours' stiff practice, sides were chosen and a lively
game took place. Later in the evening refreshments were served in the
Cafeteria, where the girls planned various basketball activities. Arrangements were made by the executive,
Alda Moffat and Kathleen Reid, for a
hike on October 25th. From the large
turn-out and the snappy play witnessed, it is evident that the • Club has
some promising material, and with a
little support it should forge ahead
The Training Club will meet on Friday at ten minutes to five in Room
33. All members of every Athletic
Club must turn out in middies and
bloomers ready for action. Mr. Jack
Buchanan, trainer for University
teams, will outline his program.
As Arts '28 has not yet elected an
athletic representative, Miss Doris
Wood has been chosen track representative pro-tem.
Anyone interested, in track work is
advised to get in touch with Miss Wood
at once. This can be done by leaving a note in the letter-rack.
The Prefect's Tea will be held on
Saturday, October 11th, in the auditorium from 3 to 5 p.m. Mrs. Klinck
and Miss Bollert will receive the
guests. Mrs. Clement, Mrs. Brock,
Mrs. Coleman, Miss Ross and Miss
Mclnnes have been invited to pour.
During the afternoon there will be entertainments by way of games, after
which tea will be served buffet style
in the Cafeteria. The afternoon will
conclude with dancing.

Two Miller Cup Teams
Engage For V arsity
Saturday afternoon at 2.30 the two
Varsity Miller Cup teams commence
this season's activities—the one team
stacking up against the powerful
Wanderers, and the other playing
X-King George. The games should
be exceedingly interesting, as both
the opponent teams are considered
the pick of the league, and it is up
to Varsity to put over a double victory. With plenty of rooters on the
side lines the boys feel certain that
they will give a good account of themselves. Although the teams are not
yet picked there are several of last
year's veterans who are certain of
places. For the benefit of freshmen
notes on some of them would not
be amiss.
Pug Gregor.—Captain of the McKechnie Cup team and a terror in the
Ramsell.—A hard worker and a
thorn in the side of the opposition.
Britt Brock—Although just returned from the North, Britt should show
his   usual   good   form.
Sparks.—Slippery as an eel and
just  as  fast.
Clare Domoney.—A great drop kicker—cool and confident in the pinches.
J. McLean.—Jack of all positions—
plays  them  equally well.
Harry Warren.—The fastest man
on either team—breaks away when
least expected.
A. Buchanan.—A deadly tackier—
elusive runner, inspires any team
with  unlimited  confidence.
Harry Purdy.—A man the opposition watches but who gets away regardless.
Besides these men there are
Hunter, McPherson, Bain, Louden,
Mathews, Murphy, Demidoff, Hincks,
Maclnnes, Noble, Tupper, Brown,
Casselman, Kelly and Gustafson of
last year's Second and Freshman
Rugby teams. There are also several
freshmen who are shaping well, and
who should cinch places.

Dr. Thomas To Speak
At Open Meeting
Dr. Ernest Thomas, of Toronto, and
formerly of this city, will address an
open meeting for students in Room
Z on Friday noon. Dr. Thomas is
well known in Vancouver, has an international reputation, and is generally recognized as one of the most
influential preachers and advanced
religious thinkers of Canada today.
During recent years Dr. Thomas has
been intimately connected with student circles in the East, where his
breadth of intellect and ability to
grasp the student point of view have
made him very popular. It s hoped
that as many as possible will avail
themselves of this opportunity to
hear so eminent a speaker. Everybody  welcome.

„     OF A.M.S. HELD
Last Friday noon a general meeting of the Alma Mater society was
held, at which about six hundred students were present. After the meeting was opened by Mr. A. E. Grauer,
the president of the Alma Mater Society, the secretary, Miss Elsie
Rilance, read the minutes of the proceedings of the last meeting, held
late in the spring term. Lyle Atkinson, treasurer, then read the financial
statement, showing that student finances were in healthy shape, but that
the utmost need for economy during
the coming session must be realized.
Mr. Grauer then read to the students the policy of the Students'
Council for the coming year, explaining it in detail, and pointing out that
it did not materially differ from that
of previous councils. This policy will
be published in full in next week's
Ubyssey, for the reference of all students.
Mr. .Atkinson then presented a detailed report of the work accomplished by the Bookstore Committee
during the summer months, declaring
that the main difficulties of establishing such a store had been surmounted,
and that all that remained necessary
was the consent of the University
Mr. Tommy Taylor, marshal, and
Mr. Tommy Brown, head of the Publications Board, gave short addresses
before the meeting closed, the former
praising the freshmen for the co-operation they gave in making initiation
a success, and the latter explaining
the organization and aims of the Students' Publications Board. The meeting adjourned at one o'clock.

Varsity Juniors suffered the fate of
their senior brethren by going down in
the opening game, 4-1. But here also
the game was not without redeeming
features, as four only af last year's
squad were in their usual places. With
their work there is no fault to be found,
while experiment revealed considerable talent among the recruits. With
one or two changes, and a better
blend, the team should repeat last
year's success. Stewart in goal is not
responsible for the four tallies against
him. Dynes makes a very capable
back, and McDonald, at centre-half,
should improve with wear. Gaudin
and Spillsbury are decided acquisitions
to the forward line, being both fast
youngsters who rely on footwork rather than weight.

their centre forward. The fourth was
unluckily placed through by Miller,
while attempting to head clear. The
score hardly indicates the true run of
the game.

We are glad to welcome to the University Dr. S. O. MacRae, who has
recently been appointed "Si a special
lecturer in the Department of Philosophy.
Dr. MacRae has had an interesting
scholastic career, having attended a
number of Universities in this country
and on the continent. He pursued his Arts Course at Dalhousie,
where he studied under the special
direction of the late Professor James
Seth, afterwards professor of Ethics
at Edinburgh University. After
graduating with Honors he taught for
a short time in the well-known Pictou
Academy in Nova Scotia. Later on,
he proceeded to the Old eWorld, and
studied for upwards of four years at
the Universities of Edinburgh, Leipsic
and Jena, also at the Sorbonne.
In Edinburgh, he studied under such
men as Prof. Flint and Prof. Pringle-
Pattison. In Jena, he took his Doctor
of Philosophy degree under Prof.
Eucken, an author well-known to
students of Philosophy on both sides
of the Atlantic as a leader of new
idealism in present day thought. In
Paris, Dr. MacRae studied under that
inspiring scholar and writer, the late
Prof. Sabatier.
In Canada, Dr. MacRae has been connected with educational work for some
time. He founded and conducted
Western Canada College for Boys in
Calgary, and when he left there to
take charge of the University School
in Victoria, he received wide testimony to his work as an educator and
public-minded  citizen.
At present, Dr. MacRae is taking
charge of the lectures and work in
Psychology, also the class in the History of Education. During a recent
interview, he said he had been struck
with the good attention, and general
interest and alertness, displayed by
the students in their several classes.

Polynesia and Papua" and "Summer
Isles of Eden." The latter book is
available in the U. B. C. Library.
Mr. Burnett's generous gift will be
greatly appreciated both by the students and the public for years to come,
and will be a valuable access to the
knowledge of the southern lands,
where only the more adventurous dare

Dr. Klinck returned on Wednesday.
All returned men who are interested
in student loans should see either Bill
Phillips, Sc. '27 or Wilfred Kelly, Arts
'25 as soon as possible. Nothing final
has been negotiated concerning the
procuring of these loans, and it would
help the committee in charge very
much if these concerned would report
to one of the two above-named men
at once.

Tennis Enthusiast
Tells of Thrills
'Watching Tournament
By "X.I.X."
Dear reader, if you are interested in
tennis, DON'T READ THIS! Don't,
In the first place, until the other
day, we did not know much about tennis. We had a vague impression that
it was played by one or more persons
with a ball and bat. So, last Friday,
expecting to see a game something
like baseball, we irade for the courts,
"seeking knowledge like a tennis star,"
or whatever it was Tennyson said (the
game is named after him, isn't it?).
When we got there we asked an intelligent-looking gentleman what the
object of th# game was. He looked us
over and then laughed. "Why, to
knock the ball outside of the lines, of
course!" We thanked him delightedly. Now, we could watch the game intelligently!
Two men were playing what was
evidently a one-sided game. We were
awfully sorry for one of them (Shields
was his name). He didn't seem to be
able to get the ball to go outside at
all. No matter how hard he hit it, it
would almost always land just inside
the line. This was surprising, for we
beard someone say that he was a good
player. The other man was evidently
a shark at the game. He put them
outside quite often. Why, he even
landed one in the next court! Indeed,
we thought it was marvellous playing!
And every time that he tried to hit
the net in the middle of the court he
never missed. We had never seen
anything so marvellous for accuracy.
So we went away for a while and
when we came back we found that unfortunately in our absence he had lost
the game, somehow. We think we
shall stick to baseball.
A meeting of the Men's Hockey Club
was held on Tuesday at noon in the
physics lecture room. The following
officers were elected: Dr. Sedgewick,
honorary president; J. Macpherson,
president; P. Demidoff, vice-president;
J. Newmarch, secretary-treasurer. A
committee was appointed to make arrangements for a dressing room and
showers in the Horseshow Building.
Nothing definite will be announced until the rink opens on October 29th.
Do you remember the Arts '27 Pep
Band? Of course you do; who could
forget the men of the freshmen class
decked out in all the old clothes that
were refused by the last rummage
sale? And you remember the enthusiasm they raised at the Rugby
We want another Pep Band this
year—to be a Variety, not a class affair. A meeting of all those interested
is to be held in the Chemistry Lecture
Room on Monday noon. Officers will
be elected, and the band organized for
the coming year.

It was feared that Mosher anight experience a relapse when he heard that
the team of which he had been newly
elected captain had scored one goal
out of the eight in Saturday's match,
but the doctors fortunately broke the
news gently.
A Paris paper advises a love smitten
youth to study his sweethearts feet,
which indicate character. Warning of
an expensive wife is given if the toes
turn away from the kerb while passing
a milliner's window.
She (just introduced): Somehow
you seem familiar.
He: Good heavens! I haven't
started  yet.
