ATHLETICS BRIGHTER
Prominent Athlete Met Death
this Summer
As everybody knows, there was a
reception on Friday night, October 11,
for the U.B.C.'s latest acquisition. Now
that initiation rites are over, and the
Freshies really belong to the college, we
thought that we could afford to spend
a few hours in being nice to them and
in trying to get them to be nice to each
other. The guests were received by Mr.
Sutcliffe, president of the Alma Mater
Society; Miss Evelyn McKay, president
of the Women's Undergraduate Society;
Mrs. Wesbrook, Mrs. Klinck, and Mrs.
Robinson.
The first part of the evening was
taken up with musical selections, a
speech from Dr. Sedgewick, and, of
course, with introducing everybody to
everybody else. Then cards and dancing took up our attention until twelve
o'clock, when it was decided that our
juvenile guests should all be away home
in  their little  beds.
Upon entering the auditorium, each
person was given a numbered card.
Each student of the upper years, after
having found the Freshie whose number
corresponded to his own, had to take
care of that Freshie's happiness for the
rest of the evening. If any of us were
.inclined to be bored at first, Mr. Fink's
violin selections acted as a complete
remedy. Dr: Sedgewick said things that
made us laugh and things that made us
think. Being honorary president of Arts
'22, he spoke mainly to the members of
that class. In order to conform with
what seems to be the custom at this
University, he reminded the Freshies of
the newness of everything around the

RUGBY AND  BASKETBALL
ENTHUSIASTS AT WORK
A Vancouver Rugby League has been
recently formed in the city, consisting of
four teams: "U.B.C.," Firemen, Cough-
lan's, and nondescripts. A schedule for
the coming season has been drawn up.
Two games will be played every Saturday afternoon at Brockton Point, the
first being set for  Saturday,  October 26.
The followers of Rugby in the University have been working overtime
lately, in order to be in shape for the
opening game of the season, but so far
the weather has not been favorable for
serious work. As in other years, the
team will be very light; but the speed
shown, especially in the back division,
will  make up  for this.
We can depend upon our men to give
.a good account of themselves, but it is
necessary that the faculty and the student body stand behind them and show
some appreciation by turning out to the
games. The morale of a team is greatly
increased with the knowledge that they
have   active  and  enthusiastic   supporters.
Concerning the basketball this year,
we can only say that both teams are
handicapped owing to the fact that they
are having difficulty in finding a gymnasium in which to practice. It is hoped
that some suitable arrangement will be
made soon, either with the High School
or with the Normal.
Buy A Victory Bond
TITILLARD G. McLELLAN entered
McGill University College with Arts
'17. He was a splendid athlete and
Rugby star, as well as being very popular among the students and a leader in
their activities. In his Sophomore year
he enlisted in the famous "Princess
Pats," and was wounded while serving
in France. Upon recovery he returned
to Vancouver, and continued his University course as a junior with Arts '19.
Very soon he adjusted himself to the
new conditions and became again one of
the leading spirits of the College, the
Arts men, at the close of the term, electing him to be their president.
Early this summer he was drowned on
the  Skeena.
Few men ever attended either "Old
McGill" or the University of B. C. who
were as much loved as "Mickey." Popular with students and faculty alike, and
full of unbounded enthusiasm, he had a
great influence on the College, and his
death leaves a void in the spirit of the
University and in the lives of all who
knew him, even ever so slightly. The
personification of vibrant dynamic life,
he seemed not to have been "born for
death," and even yet it is hard to realize
that he is gone forever. It was, too, the
very "humanness" of his character that
won for him his popularity and success
as a leader—he was human nature, in
his failings and virtues, hopes and disappointments, anguish and success.
The Recording Angel in his golden
book might write him as one "who loved
his fellow men," whose friends were
legion and enemies few. What more
could a man desire?

This year, under the able guidance of
Dr. Ashton, the Canadian Officers'
Training Corps of the University will
resume its activities in much the same
manner as in previous years; two parades a week for drill and lectures. A
sergeant-instructor is expected from
Victoria for the drills, and the authorities have offered to send officers for the
lecture  work.
Shooting practices will be arranged as
soon as possible, and occasional route
marches will take the place of drill.
Corps singing will have its inauguration
this year, more with a view to making
a cheerful noise than to obtaining
artistic effects.
It is sincerely regretted that Mr.
Jordan, who did so much for the corps
in the early days of its existence, will
not be able to take his active interest
this year on account of pressure of
work.
There is a possibility that one of our
returned men will be appointed as adjutant of the corps. Nothing definite,
however, has been decided.
The future orders for the corps will
probably be  given  through  this  column.
*    *    *
All men who have left the corps are
asked to hand in their uniforms at once,
as there are so many new men who need
outfits.
GERALD   M.   HARVEY
We feel that our paper will not be
complete without special mention of the
death of "Shorty," as Gerald was popularly known. The University lost one
of her brightest young men and cleverest students when Gerald decided to join
the Royal Air Force as a pilot. He was
a happy member of Arts '20, and, although only eighteen years old, he was
in his Junior year. He left Vancouver
for a training camp in the East on
Friday, September 30th. On Saturday,
October 12th, his parents received word
that he had died in Toronto from pneumonia, resulting from a short attack of
Spanish influenza. He was bright and
happy, always full of life, and it was
with sorrow and regret that we learned
of his death. He was the only child of
Mr. J. N. Harvey, who is a leading
business merchant in Vancouver. They
have  our  deepest sympathies.

Prominent Graduate
Falls in Battle
Charles Duncan, a resident of Sand-
wick, Vancouver Island, graduated with
the class of Arts '16. He was the first
man to enlist in the B. C. Company of
the 196th University Battalion organized
that spring. He was drafted into the
46th Saskatchewan Battalion on reaching England and went to France early
in 1917. He was wounded twice, once
at Vimy Ridge and again in October,
1917.
A few weeks ago, having been granted
his commission, he returned to France,
but was killed in the Cambrai battle
shortly  afterwards.
A popular member of many student
societies, he was especially active in the
Players' Club, and will be remembered
as one of the characters in "Fanny and
the Servant Problem," produced in his
graduating year.

U.B.C., and of their newness especially,
in spite of the fact that Freshies are
really very old things.
While all those who could dance were
enjoying themselves, with the aid of
Weaver's orchestra, the others were
having a good time at military whist in
the men's common room. Mr. Adams
and Miss Pauline Gintzburger were the
master and •mistress of ceremonies here.
To add more interest to the card games,
there were prizes offered—two boxes of
Purdy's.
Altogether the reception was a success, and we are sure that owing to it
no person's disposition was as sour as
those who made the punch seemed to
have surmised. The faculty and their
wives were well represented in the company. We were also glad to have with
us some of the graduates and former
students  of U.B.C.

Steven Leacock once mentioned the
fact that a certain college professor was
considered to be out of his mind because he readied out his hand for a
newspaper and "seemed to want to read
one of the editorials"; but even this
condemnation does not prevent us from
trying to keep one column a week filled
with such an interesting type of reading
matter.
This week we are not going to launch
into a discussion of the high cost of
learning, nor Spanish "flu," nor the
effect of Methuselah on the poems of
Dr. Samuel Johnson, but are merely going to state very briefly* the why and
wherefore  of  the  "UBYSSEY."
It has long been felt by the members
of the Annual and Monthly Boards of i
former years that these publications
were unsuitable in form to be of any
great service as either the official organs of the students or as mediums for
the discussion of problems relating
to the University. It is the hope of the
Publications Board that the weekly
"UBYSSEY" will justify its existence
just for the reasons that the Monthly
failed; for while stories, skits, and
poems are still very acceptable and
necessary, the main aim of the paper is
to print tlie news while it is "hot," and,
by means of its columns, to encourage
all forms  of student  activities.
In order for the paper to be interesting to all the students in the University,
it is essential that representatives from
every class of student should keep us
informed   of   their   activities.
Especially do we want the short
course    men    and    returned    soldiers    to
feel that they have an interest in the
College and in the College paper. They
are free and welcome to use our correspondence column, and to take advantage of our class notes and advance
notices. Any contributions, literary or
technical,  will  be  gladly  published.
We just hate to talk about ourselves,
or about our advertising, either; but an
pverweening conceit forces us to the
former (note the alliteration), and grim
necessity dictates the latter course of
action.
We are absolutely dependent upon
our advertisers not only for our success,
but for being able to publish a paper at
all. A list of the business firms of the
city who have placed advertisements
with us will be found on the last page.
Please notice their names and patronize them, AND LET THEM KNOW
WHERE YOU  HAIL  FROM!
JUST  SAY  "U.B.C."
If this is not done, then the ads. will
not come in, the paper will not come
out, the editors will not pass their
exams, and the students will not get the
value of their two dollars, world without   end.
THE VALUE OF BEING ON TIME
Under the above heading, which
sounds like the introduction to a very
prosy sermon, we merely wish to state
a cruel and unfortunate fact. THIS
PAPER CANNOT COME OUT ON
TIME UNLESS THE "COPY" IS
ALL IN WELL AHEAD OF TIME,"
by axiom 8V2, which says that "that
which is impossible cannot be done." So
if your society is going to have a general meeting on Friday evening, do not
wait till Thursday morning to send us
a notice, which must be set into type,
corrected and assigned a place in the
paper. It is our intention to go to press
on Wednesday at noon, and to deliver
the papers on the following Thursday
morning. The heavier articles and write-
ups will have to be in our hands during
the previous week, and the last notices,
etc., not later than Tuesday evening.
.The greater proportion of the matter
should be in by Monday noon.
The paper will only be as interesting
as the matter it contains, and the interest of the matter depends upon the
number of various individuals who are
reporting and writing and upon the
work put on their contributions by those
people. If you don't like the paper, get
to work to improve it; but don't grouch
about it in the corridors. October 17, 1918

The Glee Club has already begun its

commandeered for the "flu" patients)
from twelve to one every Tuesday and
Friday. A hearty invitation to become
a member of the club is extended to
every student of the college. Previous
training is not necessary. The new
music is expected in about a week, and
we feci sure it will appeal to everyone,
as it contains many humorous and popular  songs.
The orchestra is still recruiting members. If the University is not lacking
in musicians, they are too modest to
make themselves known. If you can
play any instrument, please give your
name in to Mr. Fink, or leave it at the
office. We wish to make this year a
successful one for the musical society,
and  with  your  help  it  will  be  such.
LITERARY SOCIETY
The Literary Society held its annual
meeting last week, the new president,
Mr. Scott, being introduced by the vice-
president, Miss Marjory Peck. The
presidents of the different societies were
called upon to present their plans for
the year. Dr. Asliton, the honorary
president, then addressed the students,
advising them to be sincere in their
attitude to their work, encouraging them
by several striking anecdotes to develop
the   right  spirit  to   their  work  and   play.
Friends of Gunner W. G. Match, of
the 68th Battery, will be sorry to learn
that he has been wounded. On August
20 he received a gunshot wound in the
right leg, and has been admitted to the
Southern General Hospital, Edgbarton,
Birmingham. Hatch is a member of
Science   '19.
All interested in the University will
be sorry to hear that severe illness has
prevented the President, Dr. Wesbrook,
from undertaking his work for the first
part of the session, but we hope that he
will be able to be with us again after
Christmas. Dr. Wesbrook has the sympathy of all the students and their
wishes  for  a   speedy  recovery.

There was a  deathly silence,
And  a  look  of awful  fright
On  the  face of  every  Freshman
On  initiation  night.
Each  victim's name was  spoken,
In accents deep and  dread,
By a figure grim and ghastly
Gowned in black from heel to head.
Then  through   the  darkened  passage
Each  one  was  dragged away,
With  a  bandage o'er his  popping eyes-
And  those behind did pray.
Then  through  the din  came noises
And  terrifying groans,
And  shrieks,  and  ghostly wailings,
And a  rattling of dry bones.
Upon  his  hair molasses
Was  dumped  in  liberal  dose,
Until  it  trickled  in  his   eyes
And  then ran up  his  nose.
He   stammered  and  lie   spluttered:
So, while his mouth  was wide,
Someone  seized  the castor  oil
And  poured a  lot inside.
And  then,  to  make  him  easy
And  feeling smooth  and  nice.
They fed him  full of axle-grease
And   artificial   ice.
So  onward  was   he  taken,
In  gentle   Seniors'  care.
To  meet  an  inept  barber
Who took some of his hair.
But  let   these  harrowing  details
Be  buried  in  the  past.
And  let  the  noble  Freshman
Look to  the  time,  at  last.
When he will, in his glory,
No  longer  Freshman  be.
But walking with  the  Seniors
In the halls of U.B.C.

FRESHETTE   INITIATION
On the evening of October 5th, under
the motherly care of members of the
upper classes, the Freshettes were
escorted to the University in order to
undergo  the  ceremony  of  initiation.
In the upper hall, the children were
divested of all superfluous ribbons and
hairpins, after which, to show the humility  they  so deeply  felt,  they  made  a
pilgrimage to the auditorium upon their
knees. Arrived in this chamber of horrors, the little ones were placed under
the tender care of several experienced
hairdressers. Their heads were then
anointed with olive oil, in order that
their hair might acquire the thick and
wavy splendor which so characterizes
that of the Seniors. After this, guided
by the all too willing Sophomores, the
girls went fishing, for which purpose
they were all required to select their
bait from a large can containing the
very best varieties. It was noticed that
the Freshettes seemed to have a peculiar
faculty for stumbling over a barrel,
placed for ornamentation by the
thoughtful Sophomores, and for this
carelessness they were gently but firmly
reprimanded. Feeling now that they
were beginning to realize the joys of
Varsity life, overcome by excess of feeling, the girls rolled about upon the floor
for some time.
The proclamation was then read, and
the oath of allegiance administered.
Kneeling reverently, the Freshettes solemnly swore "reverence to Seniors,
humbleness to Juniors, forgiveness to
Sophomores," and promised to perform
rites, similar to those they had received,
upon the following generation of Freshettes.
Miss Wright and Miss McKay both
complimented the girls upon their
sportsmanship, after which Miss Mc-
Innes gave an interesting talk upon
vocations  for women.
The rest of the evening was spent in
dancing, and, at an early hour, the
Freshettes were escorted home to a
well-earned  rest.
An informal meeting of the men of
Arts '22 was held in the men's common
room in the Arts Building on Tuesday
afternoon last in honor of one of their
members, Mr. Lipson. Mr. Lipson had
unfortunately been absent from the
initiation on Saturday evening, and in
conversation with another member of
his year expressed his regret at the fact.
Rather than have the college career of
a fellow-student blighted by such an
omission, the Freshmen kindly consented to put on a special performance

Lieut. "Rasty" Wright
Killed in Action
"Lieut. Douglas Archibald Wright
('Rasty'), Student, Teacher and Soldier:
He entered Science '16 in 1912 from
Columbian College. Is Medicine Man of
the Tribe, and leads in all pow-wows
and other vocal entertainments. 'Oey
Cam! Let's sing a song!'"—McGill
Annual,  1915.
Thus ran the write-up of Rasty, depicting his traits of character, and it was
natural that he should develop into a
strong leader in whatever profession he
followed.
Rasty's name is on our University
Honor Roll, as he transferred his standing from McGill University College
when U.B.C. was established, and hoped
to come back and finish his course when
the war was over. He was greatly interested in the progress of the University and was kept posted in educational
affairs  by  his friends.
He enlisted with the Irish Fusiliers,
but transferred to the McGill University
Contingent, with w.hich unit he went
overseas in the spring of 1915. He was
first wounded in the following June at
Sanctuary Wood, where he was recommended in the field for his commission.
From May, 1917, to August 12th, 1918,
he served as a lieutenant in the Princess
Pats. On the latter date he was wounded
by a rifle bullet in the chest and died
on his way to the dressing station. We
quote Capt. E.  M. MacBrayne:
"In losing Lieut. Wright, the company
has lost one of its most efficient officers,
a good comrade, and a gallant gentleman."

SCIENCE BABBLINGS
There have been sundry mutterings
and grumblings going on in our corridors during the past week, the unavoidable result of trying to force the
overflowing energies of a score or two
of lively youths into the proper channels. After a great deal of stalling and
backfiring, the machine is now showing
signs   of   running   smoothly   once   more.
We heard a story the other day, told
us by one of our Sophs, "ft was great,"
he said, "but they were too strong for
us. Half-a-dozen of the Science men
were downstairs when the Freshies were
making their exit. The former requested
the latter to leave by the front door, the
proper exit for gentlemen, the rear door
being for peddlers, servants, and garbage men. The Science men said, 'They
shall not pass.' But the Freshies merely
played steam-rollers." There must be
something in this story, because we saw
the janitor sweeping up a pile of gory
debris. But things like that, you know,
are only natural after a famous victory.
One of the Science Freshmen said it
reminded him of the time when Tlora-
tius and another dago held a bridge, but
we give  it up.
U.B.C. Yell
Travels Far
That the many University boys who
have crossed over to England and
France from British Columbia have left
their mark is shown by the following,
which is taken from a booklet of
"Howls" used by Number Four Company, Cadet Training School, Bexhill-
on-Sea. The Cadet Training School is
the place where many of the men who
have served well in France are sent to
receive their officers' training. The following will be recognized as the only
and  original  U.B.C. yell:
"Kitsilano, Capilano, Siwash, Squaw,
Klo-howya, Tillicum, Skookum Wall!
Hi-yu,  Makamuk, Mukamuka Zip!
No.  Four Company, Rip! Rip!  Rip!
FOUR    COMPA NY!
Four Company!    Four Company!
Rip!    Rip!    Rip!"
This yell was extensively used during
the 1918 baseball season, it is stated.
