Conference
Planned For
Week End
S. C. M.   Programme   Embraces
Interesting Topics—Prominent
Speakers Engaged
It has been asked in many different
ways whether the present situation in
society and religion is, as the famous
mathematical problems of antiquity,
impossible of solution, or whether
something cannot be found that will
bring about reform? Can the ill-feeling between races of different origin
and color be supplanted by happier
relationships, national and imperial
ambitions become international and
some means be found to end the
strife between modern science and religion? These things have lasted long
enough and the time is ripe for definite action.
The foregoing questions and ail that
they involve will be faced at the coming conference. Every scheme and
suggestion will be welcomed. But
whatever else may be brought forward one of the main purposes of the
conference is to examine the merits
Of Christianity. If there is but little
hope in the way of Christ, what more
hopeful way is there? This is a chal
lenge to every thoughtful student,
to search for some clue, and present
it at the conference.
The   conference   begins   on   Friday
evening at 8:00 p.m. in the University

League  of  Nations
J   Society Will Give
Series of Lectures
ThA Alma Mater Society has invited
thevAieague^of Nations^Society (Vancouver Branch) to^afrange a "few lectures for the benefit of the students
of the U. B. C. Tomorrow (Friday)
at noon, Hon. Mr. Justice Murphy will speak on "What the League
has already accomplished." Justice
Murphy has an excellent reputation
as a learned, convincing, and pleasing
platform speaker, and there is no
doubt that the Auditorium will be filled to capacity.
If the first lecture is a success, other
League lectures will be available from
week to week. Tom Richardson, onetime British Labour M.P., will speak
on "Labour and the League;" Dean
Coleman on "International Prejudice
and Education;" Principal W. H.
Smith on "The League and the
Churches;" and Robie L. Reid, K.C,
on "The Permanent Court of International Justice at the Hague."
This series would certainly be of
great educative value to the student
body and it will be easy to make arrangements for it, if the turnout for
Mr. Justice Murphy's initial lecture
warrants the Alma Mater Society in
taking action.
Harrjr Mosher, Popular
Varsity Goalie
Above is a picture of Harry Mosher
of Science '25, who needs no introduction to local soccer fans. "Heg-
gie" enjoys the reputation of being
one of the best net minders in Canada
and will in all probability represent
the Dominion in an all-star eleven
which is to tour Australia this summer. The fact that Mosher has come
into prominence while playing for the
Varsity is a source of considerable
satisfaction to the followers of tne
round ball game at U. B. C. If the
honor of being selected for the all-
star team is conferred on the tall
Varsity custodian it will speak well,
not only for his individual merit, but
also for the high class of soccer as
well as other branches of sport participated in at U. B. C.
Two years ago the Varsity first soccer team was practically in obscurity,
being only a second division team.
Last year they were tied for the first
division league leadership, won the
Mainland Cup, and qualified for the
finals in the Provincial championships.
Heggie played a big part in this extraordinary accomplishment although
it was also due to the result of the
tireless efforts of many others who
adopted a less sensational role than
he.
\ NOTICE
The practice of reserving a seat in
the library by placing books in front
of it or by tilting the chair against the
table  must  discontinue.
Any seat so reserved in future will
be considered unoccupied and may be
taken by any person wishing to use it.

Meeting — Lipsey,   Gibbard,     j    Question Lose by Two to One
Hodgson and    Doc    Give Decision
Addresses i
Last Friday, under the auspices of ;
Arts '27, a most successful Pep meet- i
ing was held in the Auditorium. The
meeting was opened by yell King
Bishop, who led Varsity through popu •
lar yells. Mr. Swanson, President ot I
Arts '27, then explained that the meet-;
ing was being held to create enthus-!
iasm for the forthcoming debates aim j
games. At this point the Heinz Rube ]
Band appeared and clinched with'
cheery "music," Mr. Swanson's argu-,
ments for pep. j
After the "music," Mr. Hodgson and j
Mr. Gibbard appealed for support for
the Debaters and the European Student Relief Campaign respectively, j
Mr. Lipsey announced that owing to ;
weather conditions the soccer game!
would have to be postponed. Mr. Lip- i
sey emphasized the fact that good sup |
port was of wonderful assistance to i
a team, especially to a losing team, j
He stated that Varsity won not only ,
by ability, but also by a certain spirit, I
which the speaker termed "fight."       j
Next the Heinz Band rendered "On :
the Back Porch."    The audience sang, j
and   thundered   applause   when   the!
Band   bowed   its   thanks,   in   the   approved    manner    of the    Capitol Orchestra.
Dr. Sedgewick spoke, voicing his
approval of everything that had been
expressed by the speakers. He praised the recent work of the Varsity First
Soccer Team, when with two men missing it prevented the Elks team from
scoring. He pointed out that soccer
brought Varsity into contact with
many people, who could only judge tne
College by the clean work of me
teams. He mentioned the high esteem
in which Varsity is held in local soccer circles.
At the close of his speech, a "Skyrocket" was given for Dr. Sedgewick.
Then the Heinz Band smashed its way
through one or two pieces; and later
the students were conducted by Mr.
Jack MacDonald, in the singing of two
old favorite songs. The Yell Kin-
closed the meeting with a few admirably conducted college yells.
Best    Smoker    Yet
x That of Arts Men
The Arts Smoker, which is to take
place on February 8, promises to be
a great success. The various committees in charge are working hard,
and announce that very satisfactory
arrangements are being made. The
Smoker will he one of the best ever
staged by Arts. Record crowd- ol
Arts men are expected to attend
The U. B. C. international debaters
were defeated both here and in Oregon last Friday evening! the vote of
the judges being two to one in their
opponents' favour in both cases. The
Varsity speakers, however, went down
to defeat only after a keen and close
struggle.
At home, the University debaters
upheld the affirmative of the resolution, "That the United States should
immediately recognize the Soviet Government of Russia," A. E. Grauer,
Arts '25, and H. Yonemura, Arts '24,
speaking against Chas. H. Chandler
and H. T/McKee of the University of
Idaho, r
Mr. Grauer. leader of the U. rt. C.
team, opened the debate by setting
forth legal and eeonomie arguments
for immediate recognition. He claimed that, since the Soviet had established a safe and permanent government, they were entitled to recognition by all the best-traditions of international relations. That the resulting employment of idle American
capital in the development of Russian
resources would benefit both countries, was his assertion.
The negative leader, Mr. Chandler
(who is a Senior student in the faculty of Education at Idaho) then took
the platform. The Soviet Government's policy of confiscating private
property prevented the acknowledgement of their validity, he argued.
Recognition would legalize these con-
f t-cations afiid make the United Slates
a party.ro Russia's crimes.
II. Yonemura, second debater for
1 i'p affirmative, then spoke. He attacked the arguments that had been
advanced by the Idaho debater, and
vent on to advance a third argument
;n favor of recognition, namely that
uch an action would insure world
\v ace rince Russ'a, unrecognized, was
ro "polled to maintain large standing
"rr-ies.
Tliis latter argument was attacked
y H. T. McKee, Idaho's second syeak-
t, who declared that war and not
peace would result, since the U. S.
would, eventually, be compelled to use
force in the protection of her Russian
investments. He advocated the status
<~uo policy of "let well enough be."
McKee Quoted statistics to show the
superiority of American-Russian trade-
ralance over like figures as regards
Foviet commerce with England.
Each of the debaters was then given
the seven minutes for rebuttals.
From an oratorical standpoint Mr.
Grauer was generally conceded to be
the best speaker of the evening, although his performance was hardly
up to his last year's standard. His re-

X ARTS '27
Last Tuesday noon, Arts '27 held a
meeting in the Physics Lecture Room.
Mr. Allen of Arts '26 spoke in explanation of the S. C. M. The sum of $50
was voted for the purpose of a book
gift to the Library. The class was en-
thusiastc over Mr. Chas. Thompson's
proposal to give a party. Details were
left in the hands off the executive;
probably the party will take place in
two or three weeks.
There will be a Pep Meeting in the
auditorium next Tuesday noon when
a 100% turn-out is expected. The last
meeting of this kind proved to be a
decided success. This one will be
even better. Particulars wil be posted
on the notice boards. Leave next
Tuesday noon free, as important business will be discussed.
\/ARTS  '26  SKATING   PARTY
'A very enjoyable skating party was
held by Arts '26 at the Rink last
Thursday evening. Although the ice
was not in the best condition, being
very much cut up, the band, which
was excellent, made up for any other
deficiencies. Everyone agreed that a
jolly evening was spent, the only »e-
gret being that not more of the class
turned up.
X ARTS '26
At noon last Monday, Arts '26 held
a draw for their class party. Dr.
Sedgewick assisted the class in the
work of drawing the names of partners. Efficient committees have Deen
placed in charge of refreshments,
decorations, etc. The ladies of the
class have volunteered to provide the
necessary cakes. The party will be
held in Willow Hall at S:00 p.m., February 1.

-Engineering   discussion  club
The meetings of the Engineering
Discussion Club have become an important factor in the education of
science students who have turned out
in large numbers.
Last Tuesday at noon, Mr. C. G. Mc-
Lachlan delivered a talk on the
"Electrolytic Process of Refining
Metals" which was very much appreciated.
OMEN'S   DEBATE
In the interclass debate on Wednesday, 16th, the Freshetes . were
successful in defeating the Sophomores. The subject for debate "was:
"Resolved that Protective Tariff
would  benefit Great Britain."
Miss Helen Dobie and Miss Kathleen
Clarke of '26 upheld the affirmative,
while Miss Rive and Miss Fugler of
'27 defended the negative. The judges held two votes and the audience
one.
After giving the decision in favor
of the freshettes, Mr. Soward, one of
the judges very capably criticized the
speakers. He advocated a greater enthusiasm in speaking and stronger rebuttals.
Arts "25 will meet Arts '27 for the
interclass shield about the middle of
February.
HIGH JINKS ON FEBRUARY 8
The Women's Undergrad has now
completed arrangements for High
Jinks, one of the major functions ot
the year, which will take place on Friday, February 8. Dean Bollert, Miss
Greig, Miss Ross and Miss Mclnnis
have kindly consented to act as patronesses.
This year, instead of each class putting on a Stunt, the program is to be
a surprise. It has been suggested that
the girls come in couples; prizes will
be given for the best lady's and the
best   "gentleman's"   costume.
Miss Grace Smith is in charge of
the entertainment committee and Miss
Rena McRae has charge of the refreshments. It is expected that High
Jinks will be a greater success than
ever this year.

Senior A Team
Downed by Y.M.C.A.
Poor   Combination   Shown   Last
Saturday
The Varsity senior A hoop squad
suffered a heavy defeat on Saturday
night when they met the Y. M. C. A.,
1923 Champs on their home floor. The
final score was 23-9. From the opening whistle the Y. M. played their
usual cool, steady game, missing very
few chances to score. Shiles, Ralston
and Priest, were outstanding for the
winners. The Varsity men were unable to get their team work started
and with the exception of Gord Lewis
everyone was out of form. Toward
the end of the first half Varsity showed signs of pulling together a little
better and the half ended with the
score 11-6  in favor of the Y. M. C. A.
In the second half Bassett, Grauer
and Hartley substituted but Varsity
was unable to hold the wily veteran
souad.    The teams were:
Y. M. C. A.—Phipps (4), Phillips,
Shiles (9), Priest (5), Ralston (5),
1 uck.  Hand.
Varsity—Lewis (3), Wilkinson (3),
Grauer, Carlisle (2), Hartley, Bassett,
Bickell  (1), Butler.

TER A BASKETBALL.
Varsity's Inte£m£dial£__llA" Basketball squad dropped a close game to
St. Marks on Monday night by a score
•of—Hr--2=r: The game was much more
even than the score indicates as Var
sity trailed the Saints closely till the
last few minutes when the Church
boys  drew ahead.
Varsity could not get going in the
first, few minutes and the score stood
11-1 against them. Then Varsity came
to life and drew up till the score was
12-10. The half ended 19-14. The second half was fairly even till the last
10 minutes, Varsity always a few
points behind. St. Marks began to
find the basket and the TJ. B. C. five
finished on the short end of 41-24.
The Teams:
Varsity—Arkley (6), Gross (9), Galloway (3), Gordon (5), Mottlea (1),
Schultz.    Total 24.
St. Marks--Stevenson (8), Code
(17), Abernethy (12), Calvert (2), Edwards  (2).    Total 41.
^SENIOR   B   BASKETBALL
The Varsity men's Senior R five won
an easy victory when they defeated
the Senior Normal team last Friday
night by a score" of 54-14. The Normals put up a good fight but were no
match for Varsity who took the game
from the opening whistle. Varsity
played very good combination and
with superior shooting ran up a score
of thirty points in the first half.
In the second half the Normals rallied and for five minutes the play was
even but Varsity again broke away
and the Normal guards could not nokl
the fast Varsity forwards. The period
closed with Varsity on the long end
of a 54-14 scor
HOCKEY
The Varsity Intermediate Hockey
team was defeated at the arena on
Friday, January 19, by ex King George
to the tune of six goals lu une.—Tire
first part of the game opened with the
University men playing well, when the
first goal was scored by them. Towards the end of the game, play became ragged. One of the most interesting features of the game was tne
accident which "befell" Mr. George
Lipsey's trunks. Varsity's line-up was
as follows Stoodley, Lipsey, Colton,
Demidoff, McCutcheon, McPherson,
Morgan and Newmarsh.

^EDUCATIONAL   COURSE.
Another evidence of the growth of
the University, both in importance and
in the number of courses given, is the
fact that an educational or teachers'
training course, has been established
within it. The need for such a course
has been felt for some time past; and
when, last August, the Educational
Department expressed a desire that
the University lake over the training
of graduates in this respect, the Senate consented, feeling that while this
was an important undertaking, the
University could do a great service
to the province by assuming it. The
action of the Senate has met with
general approval, and there is no
doubt that the advantages and benefits accruing from such a course will
fully recompense the University for
undertaking it.
This "Faculty of Education" furnishes the graduates with a more complete and thorough training than they
were given formerly. There are two
divisions of the work, the Public
School part, undertaken by the Provincial Normal School and concluded
by Christmas, and the High School
part, composed of lectures on method,
and teaching which will be practised
at the King Edward High School. Dr.
Weir, a man with wide experience in
such matters, has been chosen as the
lead of this new Department. MacGill has a similar department, and
Toronto has a College of Education.
This University has as thorough an
Educational Department as either of
these, from the standpoint of the work
that is being attempted.
It is hoped that'in the future the
University's participation will expand
to take charge of the whole course,
and thus establish a complete Department of Education,
she is unable to occupy within the
space of an hour, or even half an
hour, has somehow or other a twisted
view of things. We would suggest
that any person who happens to be
situated next to a pile of books wmen
have been lying "in wait" upon the
table for some time, should place a
little note between the leaves with
words upon it to this effect: "Please
remember the people sitting upon the
radiators." Perhaps something a little milder would be more effective.
And speaking of seats in the Reading Room we would like to drop a
hint to the professors. As everyone
knows, that place of learning is almost always crowded, especially
around examination times. The result is that if you wish to get a seat
you must get there early. Now when
some hard working professor takes an
extra minute or so to finish up a lecture it means that some hard working student is unable to find a place
to study in during the next hour. A
word to the wise is sufficient.
t*o
SEATS IN THE READING ROOM
There are a number of students who
are in the habit, of going up to the
Reading Room, depositing their books
at a vacant place, tilting up the chair,
and walking off to attend a lecture,
thus securing for themselves a place
upon their return. Now we do not
wish to remind the students in the
words of the old hackneyed phrase
that "this is unfair to your fellow
students," but we mean it nevertheless. The man or the woman who
will go into the Reading Room and
knowing that seats are at a premium,
will monopolize a place which he or
OMEN'S   DEBATES.
Only once in our history has there
been a women's international debate
when, in 1922, two U. B. C. women
met the challenge of Willamette University in Salem, Oregon. Last year
there was a proposal to meet them
again, but it was rejected in view of
the fact that the American women
would undertake it only on condition
that the subject be the Ruhr question,
a resolution on which the U. B. C.
men had already met California.
At tne present time negotiations are
under way to meet the same university on the same old subject—the occupation of the Ruhr. The Willamette
women are not prepared to debate on
any other question, so that either we
must invite the public to hear our
women deal with a theme which has
in if nothing new to commend it, or
we must wait till some future date
when a more appropriate question may
be considered, with some other university. Cannot the women inuuee
California, Washington, Idaho, or any
representative and well-established
university, whose name will convey
something to the public mind, to match
wits with them on the platform?
When our women place upon themselves a higher value, when they are
ready to face one of the bigger universities on a public question which
will be of interest to all, not in a debate which cannot but be a repetition
of a last season's performance, we
may expect an interest in it to be
manifested within the walls of this
university, as well as by the public at
large.
^READING   ROOM    DILEMMAS.
People who talk in the Reading
Room are of two classes: those you
know and those you don't know. You
can't ask your acquaintances to stop
talking, because they know you, and
you can't ask the others, because yo*
don't know them to speak to, anyway.
If you do ask the noisy ones to be
quiet, one of two things will happen;
either they will stop or else they won't.
It they stop, someone else will begin,
if they don't stop—what's the use of
asking them?
Hut after all the people who talk
are doing a very useful work, since
one of two things must happen;
either you ask them to desist, or else
you don't. If you do, the unpleasant
task develops your will-power; if you
don't, and try to ignore the noise, it
develops your powers of concentration.

Dear Sir:
At this time it misht be well to call
the attention of certain students to the
fact that the practice of "scalping" on
tickets for University functions is an
offence against the laws of the Alma
Water Society, as well as being- questionable from a moral point of view. 1 am
sure that the matter has only to be mentioned to be eliminated.

\ DEBATES
' Continued from Page 1
buttal, compared both with those of
his opponents and with his own opening speech, was weak. Mr. McKee,
the second speaker for Idaho, proved
to be a clever and forceful debater,
his rebuttal being especially brilliant.
Although neither as careful nor as
finished in his speaking, as Mr.
Grauer, he nevertheless won the favour of his audience by his clear, personal style and by the common-sense
appeal of his statements. Mr. Yonemura drew forth applause from his
audience by his keen rapier-like
thrusts, in refutation of his opponents' statements, but he seemed to
find a difficulty in sustaining the flow
of his arguments. This was due, in
part, to the nervousness from which
he was suffering, a disability brought
on by over-work in preparation for the
debate. Mr. Chandler, the Idaho leader, although not as strong a speaker
as his colleague, Mr. McKee, nevertheless adequately upheld his share
of the discussion.
Jack Grant, president of the Alma
Mater, occupied the chair, while
Charlie Bishop, Varsity yell-king, led
tlie students in the audience in Kitsilano" and other cheers for Idaho and
U. B. C.
The next debate in the international
series will take place here on February 19th., when California University
representatives will speak against U
B. C. on a subject not yet announced
On March 19, travelling student-debaters from Wyoming will also meet
Varsity, the subject being, "The World
Court and the Entry of the United
States into it." Arrangements for a
co-ed debate between TJ. B. C. and
Williamette College are being made,
but it is understood that the plans are
only tentative and may not materialize.
■ Dr. C. S. McKee, M.D., Mr. Justice
D. A. McDonald and Mr. Leon J. Lad
ner judged the debaters, while the
question under discussion was put to
a popular vote of the audience, the result being 421 for and 151 against
American recognition of the Soviet
This latter procedure was instituted
not as a means of judging the merits
of the debaters themselves, but as a
method of ascertaining public opinion
regarding the resolution.
BADMINTON NOTES
The plans of the Varsity Badminton
Club are- quite extensive for the 1924
term, and include many outside matches and tournaments for U. B. C. players. Last Saturday was a busy day
for Varsity Badminton players, when
three outside matches were played,
V. B. C. winning one and losing two.
Varsity won from the West End
Badminton Club by the score or 18
matches to 2, and although the West
Enders were outclassed as to the number of games won, yet many hard
matches were played—the score going
to deuce a number of times. Misses
E. Davidson, V. Milliner, I. Russell
and L. Archibald and Messrs. J. Underbill, H. Cantelon, A. Finlay and J.
Shakespeare represented Varsity.
At the King Edward Gym, a Varsity
team consisting of W. Argue, B. Weld,
O. Marrion, G. Carpenter, Miss J.
Hockin, Miss B. Hillis and Miss M.
Keelur lost to a junior team from the
Fairview- Badminton Club by the close
score of one set—nine matches to
eight.
In the evening U. B. C. played the
7th Battalion Badminton Club at the
Drill Hall and although beaten to the
tune of 18 matches to 6, put up a
good exhibition against more experienced players. Miss Hallamore, Miss
Milliner, Miss Davidson, Miss L.
Archibald and H. Finlay, Bill Argue,
lack Underhill and O. Woodman wvre
the U. B. C. representatives.

NOTE 'ELSEWHERE'
(A Muckitorial)
The other night. Zip was walking
down a slippery sidewalk and rather
through gentlemanly instinct than any-
regular habit took the arm of his lady
friend.
Suddenly he remembered. His
frontispiece assumed all the attributes
of red and he stammered. "Oh! I beg
your pardon, you've just been vaccinated." "Oh! its all right," she exclaimed quite cooly, "you may take
my arm."
The vaguest of vague rumours has
broken in upon the dreaming ears or
the lady members of the staff, a
rumour tlie purport of which is that
"owing tc ill-health" Mr. Er-c D-nn is
resigning all positions he holds, has
held, or ever will hold.

Letter to "Bill"
Mr. Tansley Receives New Year's
Greetings From
New York
Department of Economics.
College of Arts and Science,
Cornell University,
Ithaca,  New Yom,
January, 1923.    No. 1924.
Dear Bill:
Two days before Xmas a group of
graduates of the U. B. C. gathered at
a re-union in the big and wicked city
of New York. The conversation turned chiefly upon old times on the lot
near the Hospital in Fairview, the
shacks, the lean-to's and buildings
upon it and the chief persons of note
there to be found. The name most
frequently on the tongues of the assembly was that of the philosophical
janitor, or should I say Janitorial
Philosopher of the Faculty of Arts
and Science in the old Arts Building,
one William Tansley, and it was unanimously decided that a joint letter
should be sent him wishing him the
best of luck and all good things for
the coming New Year and for all future New Years. It was then decided,
not unanimously, however, that the
writing of this letter should be done
by one, Alfred Rive, who cast the
negative vote on this question, knowing that it would be impossible for
him to put into words the feelings and
gratitude and friendship held by all
the group for this Wm. Tansley. But—
hell Bill, I'm getting all balled up—
ANYWAY, we all wish you the best
of luck and many New Years. And
on our behalf, please extend these
greetings to Mrs. Tansley and ask her
to pardon the near profanity, which is
mine and not the group's.
I attach a sheet with the signatures
of those who were present at the reunion. We had dinner together at
a place on 5th Avenue (a bit of local
colour to impress the natives should
you be interviewed by one A. Evans
I Boss, who I understand is a copy
hound for a local spasmodic and probably scurrilous sheet) after that taking in a show on Broadway (not exactly, but even A. Evans should be impressed). Again Sunday we met for
tea at Evelyn Mackay's and there this
letter was begun.
Yours,
(Signed)   Alfred  Rive.

women. The women with the longing
for education worked that the future
generations might be given the opportunities which they had been
denied. Only a few short years ago,
women were unfranchised in England;
now they have eight women on the
floor of parliament.
The women of today are showing
that they can take a place in the business world. On her recent trip to
England, Mrs. Smith especially remarked the number of women who
were occupying positions that heretofore it was considered impossible for
women to fill. The speaker also expressed the hope, that in the case of
any present having political aspirations, she would have company on the
floor of the House. In concluding she
remarked, "Women are now doing national housekeeping. We who have
fought, can lay down our tools, with
the realization of comfort, brought
about by those who are being educated now."
DEBATERS ENTERTAINED.
The Idaho debaters were entertained last Friday at a tea dance held at
the Cosy Corner Tea Rooms. One
of the visitors proved to be a "woman
hater." Nothing daunted, the Varsity
co-eds concentrated their attentions
upon the youthful misogynist, tt, may
have been because of this or in spite
of it that he gave what appeared to
be the deciding speech when the teams
met that evening. As a devotee of
the terpsichorean art Dr. Boggs refused to distinguish himself, having,
so he confessed, omitted to take his
usual fall course in dancing. All arrangements were in the hands of Len
Gaddes, who comprised an Entertainment Committee for the visiting de-
bators, and it is to him that credit is
due for the enjoyable afternoon provided.
Varsity's senior rugby men will
travel to Victoria Saturday to play
for the Rounsiell Cup as the Vancouver champions. Although the team
has been decidedly weakened there is
little chance of the Capital aggregation winning the game.

ART RECITAL
ERNEST  T.   TAYLOR,
Fair. 5697.
Before a large and appreciative audience of students a novel and altogether delightful recital was given in
the Auditorium on Wednesday, January 16th, under the auspices of the
Musical Society. It took the form ot
a demonstration by J. R. V. Gould,
of Fletcher Bros., of the Duo-Art reproducing piano.
Mr. Gould, who was introduced by
Dr. Macdonald, gave a brief talk on
the development of the Duo-Art piano
from its earliest form up to its present state of perfection. He told how,
by means of the Duo-Art reproducer,
a reproduction, identical in technique,
tone and tempo, of the playing of the
great artists of the day is secured.
A number of selections were then
given as played by Paderewski, Hermann, Cortot, Bauer, Grainger and
others.
An exhibition was also given of the
adaptability of the instrument for accompaniment work, Mr. Chambers
singing two vocal numbers, "Calm as
the Night," and as an encore, "Kashmiri Love Song," to the accompaniment of the Duo-Art piano.
At the conclusion of the recital a
hearty vote of thanks was expressed
to Mr. Gould from the students in the
form  of a  "Sky-rocket."
Prof. "J.
VANCOUVER   INSTITUTE
 M. Turnbull, of the Faculty
of Applied Science was the lecturer
at last Thursday's meeting of the^Van-
couver Institute, his subject being
"Mining, Ancient and Modern." The
lecture was illustrated with appropriate lantern slides, the method followed
being to show a slide depicting antiquated methods used in past times,
followed by an illustration of similar
modern processes.
Among the many interesting maps
and views shown were two of the
earliest known mining sketches, one
from ancient Egypt, probably dating
back to 3500 B. C, and the other a
plan of mine workings in Mt. Sinai,
of equal antiquity. Others depicted
types of Roman mining and pumping
machinery, with contrasting illustrations of present-day apparatus.
