Requirements of
Rhodes Scholais
Selection of the British Columbia
Rhodes scholar for 1923, who will be
entitled to spend three years at Oxford University on an annual stipend
ot MOO, will be made on December 7,
and eandldates for the scholarship
should make application before the
end of this month to the committee
of seieotlou for this province, through
Mr. D, N. Hossle, Oil Pender street
These are the chief points of interest tor scholars and students in a
memorandum issued from the office
of the committee.
To be eligible for the scholarship,
the memorandum points out, a candidate must be a British subject, with
at least five years' domicile In Canada
and unmarried. His age must be between 19 and 25 years. He must have
completed at least two years of university work hy October 1 of the year
for whioh he is elected.
In making the selection, the committee seeks to And a candidate who
possesses the four general qualities
outlined by Cecil Rhodes himself In
his will. These qualities are; literary
nnd scholastic ability; character qualities of manhood, truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship; moral
force and instincts to lead and to
take an Interest in his schoolmates;
and physical vigor.
"the Ideal Rhodes scholar should excel in all the qualities," the memorandum, states, "but in the absence of
auch ah TfoaT combination, the committee will prefer a man who shows
distinction either of character and
personality, or of Intellect, over one
who shows a lower degree of excellence In both."
Participation and Interest in open-
air and athletic pursuits form an
essential qualification for the RhodeB
scholar, the memorandum points out,
but adds that election to office in student organizations doeH not, as Mr.
Rhodes considered leadership consists more in "moral courage" than
"aggreBBive qualities."
Poverty Is not a "special claim" to
the scholarship, the memorandum
states. The committee Is seeking for
a "strong'* candidate, and In the absence ot one It will make no appointment.
All candidates must ti lo with tbe
secretary of the committee a written
application, supported liy evidence of
his studies and references. With all
candidates whom It finds desirable,
the committee will have an interview,
before the final award Is made.
No restriction is placed on the
Rhodes scholar's choice of studies,
when he reaches Oxford. He may read
for the B.A. degree, or, If qualified hy
previous training, for the degrees of
B. Sc, B. Litt., or Ph. D.
The memorandum states that the
committee considers that the annual
stipend of £400 will be sufficient for
the scholar's needs, only with "the
most rigid economy." It suggests,
therefore, that the sum be supplemented by from twenty five to fifty
pounds a year.    The first instalment i
Bureau Seeks
During the past year, an organisation which haa as yet received little
support from the students, was authorised by Ihe Hoard nf Governors. Tho
necessity for tho establishment of
some medium through which students
might obtain employment had been
felt for some time and the recent formation of the Student Bmploymenr
Bureau haa done much to relieve the
The Bureau, which Is controlled by
a member of the Registrar's staff,
exists for the purpose- of socuring
positions for students for the whiter
session snd the summer vacation, and
In several oases has also supplied employment for students after graduation.
In these three ways, the organisation has been of great service in the
past, and if it receives adequate student support, will undoubtedly prove
of Invaluable assistance In the future,
It Is hoped that by drawing the
attention of the students to tho work
of this organisation the Bureau will
be able to carry on Its work with student co-operation. Students who obtain Information concerning positions
which are of no interest to themselves,
but which might be of service to
others are asked to communicate immediately with the Registrar, who
will also be willing to explain further
the work of the Bureau to anyone who
desires such information.

Graduates Organize
And Elect Officers
A meeting of gradiiuUm called hy K,
Munro nnd Margaret Keillor assent-
IiIimI Thursday noon for the purpose
of organising lln'iusolveH Into u group.
There was considerable discussion as
lo w hot hoi' this n-:w organisation
should also Include the Ktlucatlon
Class, which Is composed or Oralis,
but It was pointed out that Kdticntlou
already has Its own association which
has been In existence tor soma years,
and that It was hardly necessary for
Its members to belong to the new
body as well.
Furthermore, while those taking
the Teacher Training Course meet together dally, tho other Qrads are doing their work in small groups of two
and three, which makes their organisation very necessary,
After a good deal of argument It
was resolved and carried that: "All
graduates at the University of B. C.
engaged In research work and members of the staff be organised as a
Oraduate Club."
Officers chosen were: F. Munro,
President; Margaret. Keillor, Vice-
President; and 11. Matthews, Secretary-Treasurer, lt Is proposed to elect

Poor condition and lack of weight
In tho scrum were the chief factors
in Varsity's 10-0 detent at the hands
of the Rowing Club in tho Intermediate Kngllsh rugby game on Saturday.
During the first half, the game was
equal, the only score being a penalty
goal against Varsity. On the other
hand Vurslty almost scored when a
smart three-quarter run was stopped
barely five feet from the Rowing Club
In tho second session, condition told
and the Rowers piled up 10 points.
Gaul had hard luck in not adding to
Varsity's score when his drop-kick
passed a foot or so on the wrong side
of the post. In the scrum the Rowing
Club outweighed Varsity about
twenty pounds per man and had
things much their own way. Varslty'u
threes, however, surpassed the Clubbers in combination and handling,
and staged some very pretty runs.
'On the whole the class of rugby was
not too good. Varsity showing lack of
condition and the Rowing Club relying too much on the kick-hard and
follow-up type of game.
Conch Granger Is not disheartened
at the result and gives his opinion
that with a little more training and
practice together the men should develop Into a strong team. Practices
are set for 3 o'clock on Tuesdays and
noon-hour runs will be held on other
days of the week,
The team for the game was: Orlfflu,
Wood, Caul, Sllberniigel, Frost, Baker,
Horton, Ford, Pllkington, Hums, Legg,
liiilner, Mixon and Simmons.

Alumni Association,
After dinner the guests retired to
tbe Students' Common Room, where
the Initiation of freshmen was carried
out with lining pomp and ceremony,
and a good deal of fun and enjoyment
for everyone,
The game was exciting from the
spectator's point of view but tt was a
hard battle throughout all four quarters. The Red and White tried hard
but lack of experience aud organisation handicapped them tremendously,
d'Ensum starred for Westminster in
the backfleld. Campbell Duncan, on
Varsity's line-up surpassed himself as
a "tncklln' fool;" Wentworth showed
his spectacular speed to advantage in
end runs, and Steve Qittus and Tommy Berto gave very good exhibitions
of team-handling and generalship.
The line, for the major part of the
struggle held solidly, due to the efforts of such veterans as Camossi,
Hall, Jackson and Odium.
Grauer kicked off, with Varsity
going toward the Bast. Crawford received and went down on the 45-yard
line. Robertson of New Westminster
bucked four yards through oentre,
Mackle was thrown tor a yard and
Robertson again for six, giving Varsity the Ball. Wentworth made throe
yards around the end and Grauer and
Odium eight through the middle but
lost possession on an offside, Westminster made no gain. On Varsity's
first down Gillanders passed to Wentworth who made a pretty run around
right end for the first score of the
game. Berto converted neatly, and
ran back the opponents' kick 10 yarda,
but Grauer fumbled and lost the ball,
On their first attempt Went nlnater
lost 10 yards for offside and sue*
coed Ing downs brought no Improvement. Wentworth then dup Icated
his feat around the left end of another touch which Berto failed to convert. Coleman went down on the 50-
yard line with Crawford's kick. On
Varsity's third down Gillanders received from Dickson and made 25
yards, and on the following third attempt Herto tallied a dead line kick.
Then Westminster lost five yards for
offside Interference und on the next
piny Cruller recovered n kick from
Crawford. Ilerto again kicked to the
deadline ns  the quarter ended.
In the second quarter New Westminster kicked to Varsity's 25-yard
line Grauer passed to Dickson tor 25
yards around the end. Gratter's buck
and Dlckfon's run gained five and
ten yards respectively. Thore was no
further gain until the last down when
Grauer kicked to tbe deadline.
Neither team made any headway during tlie remnludei' of the half, which
left Varsity with a 14-polnt lead.
! New Westminster suffered a three
! minute penalty for unnecessary
roughness, the only dark play of the
entire   game,
With the opening of the third
quurter, Crawford booted and Varsity
gained nothing lu their downs. A
few moments later tho visitors fumbled (or Varsity possession. On tho
third attempt Ilerto kicked Into touch
but d'Knsum of the opposition cleverly
run It back 20 yards, Two minutes
later from the five-yard area, Berto
scored around li<rt end but fulled to
convert. Crawford's kick was run
back 20 yards. Gillanders was thrown
for a loss but Shields gained twenty-
five with a right end run. The close
of the quarter left the hill on 'tin
Westminster lnyiinl line wltu Ihe
score lil-0.

October 17 has been set for the day when plans will be advanced for the Institution of a new system for maintaining
Order and discipline on the rumpus. The Honor system has
failed according to impressions given at the Alma Mater meeting
Wednesday by the Students' Council.
Already the dally press has "played up" this statement as
front page news, and is undoubtedly watching for further developments concerning the honor system. Why? BECAUSE
suoh an event.
The fundamental work of a university is to prepare future
oitlsens for the world. If these future citizens are not to be
trusted to carry on as university students, how can they be
trusted to carry on as citizens of the world?
Moreover, If university students, gaining the benefits of
higher education, are not to be trusted on their honor to do what
is right, then our system of education fails In Its purpose. In
Short, the decision of the Students' Council is a declaration that
either our university education has failed In Its work of preparing future citizens for the world or else the raw material with
which our university has to work is irresponsible.
Before any such Impression of our university is allowed to
circulate among the general public, we would suggest that more
conclusive evidence be given to prove that the Honor system
has failed.
On our side we believe we are upholding the rights and
Ideals of the university when wo say THE HONOR SYSTEM
HAS NOT FAILED. If there has been failure it was on the part
of those more directly responsible for its explanation, rather
than among the great body of students where the honor system
was expected to operate. In our belief, the Honor system has
not been given a fair chance.
We maintain that every student attending the university has
the Interest of his Alma Mater at heart, and would not wilfully
break the laws of the Institution, once he agreed that these laws
are In the best Interests of the university. The fault In the past
has been that the honor system was never clearly defined or explained In a public-spirited manner to those It affected; and
possibly there have been rules included which did not meet with
the approval of all members of the Alma Mater. Consequently
the system did not have the respect it needed. Thorough understanding and unanimity are essential for the success of an
Honor system, and we maintain that such a system is the only
one which will prove satisfactory.
Instead of abolishing tbe Honor system, we would suggest
that each student be given an opportunity to decide what shall
constitute the Honor system for that year. At least one week's
time should he allowed students to consider tlie proposed Honor
system before it came into being. Then if no complaints were
registered within the week after the tentative system had been
made public, every member of the Alma Mater society should be
held responsible for the operation of the Honor system.

Editor "The Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
To further eliminate disturbances
from the Library, might I suggest
that all he chairs within the Third
and Fourth Year Study Rooms have
rubber soles on the bottom of their
feet? Some chairs are equipped in
that manner at present, but the drawing In and out of those chairs which
are not so equipped results in a noise
which is very disturbing.
Yours respectfully,
Arts '30.

You can always tell a senior by

Last term's series of articles,
telling of the various means thu
Grads took to continue their Intel-
lectural careers, will be Intermittently shown again on the Feature
Far down the road a tiny speck
sped up the road. It was a bus
driven as only a successful student In English 16 could drive It.
With a rush of the wind, the clashing of changing gears aud the
heavy rumble of students conversing the heavily loaded vehicle, controlled by Luke Warme B.A.C. '28
rolled to the busses' haven, the
new Bus Station.
Many years had Luke toiled to
attain the heights of his profession
and at last he had succeeded. He
first received his start by riding as
n. student to and fro—between a
place called Varsity and another
one called All-get-out-here-Sasamat.
He had gazed with envy at those
aloof gum-chewing persons who
had the privilege of closing doors
In profs.' races. Sometimes they
even told the highest officials
where they could get off at.
So from afar Luke hoped, that,
when the university people had finished annoying his sleep with harsh
bells and hard exams, he might become an Important person for
whom all waited in line.
One day, unaware to all the unsuspecting students, the ninth vice-
president ot the bus Arm was
travelling incognito on one of the
busses. He had fully Investigated
the transportation system and hod
decided that the riding facilities
were satisfactorily uncomfortable.
He was absent-mindedly thinking
of the day when he would be eighth
vice-president and then seventh
when suddenly a hoarse voice cried
out from the rear of tho bus,
"Where am I?" Looking under all
the seats he found Luke wedged
in between the leg of a seat and a
pair of shoes, size M. F. M.
Luke had been innocently wondering whether the station clock
had Roman numerals or whether
they were stationary when a rush
ot students had carried him Into
the bus and had left him there iu
an unconscious or natural state.
"Ah!" cried Ilie bus olllcial.
"you are Ilie living example of the
high stale ol' Imperfection our busses have reached. Come with me
and I nl1! see thai you are amply
rewarded." At the olllce Luke wa.s
asked for his qualifications I'or the
position of bus-driver. "Well," he
answered blushlngly, "I've listened
lo English Profs, lor four years
and so I would know how to talk
to the machines whether sneering-
ly or sarcastically or condescendingly. I can say "Step forward
please" In blank verse and yell ln
"Oood," replied tho official,
"you've got the Job."
Thus again did a varsity education prove Its worth In the world.
Alleged Jokes
Epistles From
Abdulla Pasha
Hullan Mohammed Itniem Boy El
llekrl Mosherlb;
lu the name of Allah, greetings to
your Majesty, lo Ihe wives In your
harem, to the camels lu your oasis,
to the slaves In your attendance, may
you forever prosper.
My rather, I arrived in this country
after a long sojourn on that four-
smoked vessel, The desert here must
be far Inland i'or so far I have seen
only a great oasis. When I got off
the vessel, a beggar came up to me
and touched his forehead, I could see
that ho was not blind so that. I gave
him no alms. Then he started to
walk off with my baggage, but I
caught him in the act and shot him.
As I started to pick up my bags, the
Shiek of the village, Mayor, they call
him, hit me on the back and said,
"Well, well, ir It Isn't Big Bill, how's
tricks In Chicago?" I didn't say anything because I knew he wasn't speaking to me.
What queer ideas these people have!
Almost everyone has a camel, like
those that came to our oasis during
the War. Remember them, wheels
spinning this way, and that way, they
eat thick oil, not olive oil nor palm
oil, nor yet Palmollve soap; but a
thick black oil that smells like Nurrl,
the blind camel driver. The camels
here drink a kind of smelly water,
that men sell on amost every turning
In the street. Their drivers have most
peculiar ways of handling them, I
tried to get one to show me how to
sit and ride, but he only laughed at
For one small piece of gold, I got. a
driver and his steed to take me to
my new home, far on the outskirts of
the village, On the way the driver
told me a lot about his car, as he
called It. Some are called autos, some
taxis, and the rest were called Fords.
Those that visited ur. were Fords.
Most of the cars here have a glass
fence all around and a roof on top,
to keep out the rain, because it rains
here almost all the time. After some
minutes of riding, he stopped ln front
of a building, and let me out. I think
he must have been a magician because when I gave him the money, he
said he couldn't change lt. I was
lucky to get out before he changed
me Into something else.
Eventually I was shown a room in
the   building,  and  was  Introduced   to
a lot of other men.    They Invited me
out, as one of them had just bought a
' camel,   Ford-kind,  he called  lt Lizzie,
; hut, it didn't answer to its name.    We
I fill went  lor a ride on it, ten of us,—-
, two  came   buck,   I   felt all  twisted   up
i Inside, ami swore thai   I  would never
again lide In one.    The man that, was
driving   had   u   hard   time  of   lt.     He
had   no   reins,   nor   even   a   stick   to
guide   it,   all   he   did   was   to  turn   a
wheel—backward   and   forward.     We
went,   over   a   small   ant-hill   In   the
street,   (silent   polceman,  they  called
it), and the car bucked, throwing me
out, I landed on my head, ao I didn't
hurt myself.    They soon stopped and
picked   me  up,   and   although   I   rode
home, the rest walked, that Is all but
the   driver.
Now, may Allah smile upon you until the end of time, for until then I
remain, your devoted son and heir.

canto with n rush and quickly tied
the score. Lack of practice told on

The Varsity men were out of practice and played In a slip-shod fashion.
Stafford and Smith worked hard and
saved many goals. Miles wob the

Milk Producers Finance
Dairy Research
In order that any possible dangers
from undulant fevor contracted
through use of cows' milk may bo eradicated, tho Certified Milk Producers
of California havo for the second time
made an appropriation of $l,O')0, tor
research by the University of California under Dr. Karl Meyer, director
of Hooper Foundation of Medical Research.
For many years it was though' that
undulant fever could bo contracted
only from tho use of goats' milk, but
recent Investigation has shown thai
It Is probably also curried by cows'
milk, In recent yoars the number of
canes, though still comparatively few,
have been on the Increase, and definite steps towards Its control nre
felt necessary.
The University already has an ox
tensive series of feeding experiments
started, for the purpose of determining how and when the germs causing
undulant fever are transmitted from
milk to animals. Strangely enough
the fever attacks adults rather than
children, though the childran are per
haps consuming more milk.
Varsity'B Soccer team took the field
against the B. C. Sugar Refinery on
Saturday, and came out on the small
end of a 6-0 score, owing to the loss
of two valuable men. The strongest
part of the Varsity team was the
bolMine, with Wright holding the
tricky Roots fairly safely. Mitchell
and Chalmer played well at fullback,
and Newall and Hyndman were always effective. Roberts at outside
right and Partridge, his inside man,
need more combination practice, ill-
gley, a new man, should develop Into
a real centre-forward, and the old men
on the team will probably regain
their speed after the first game or
As the play went, the Refinery
should have won by only one or two
goals, but weakness on Varsity's Side
contributed to their total.
The University Men's Grass Hockey
Club held their first practise on Saturday at Connaught Park. A turnout
of fifteen men snowed a decided increase of interest and will enable the
Club to enter two teams in tho city

the addition of some new talent, the
prospects for this season look very
