VANCOUVER, B. C, FEBRUARY 18, 1929
No. 29
"Varsity" Editor Is Dismissed;
Whole Staff Resigns
PETTWtt EDITORIALS CACSt TURMOIL; FREEDOM OF PRESS INVOLVED
L. J. Ryan, '89, editor of "the Varsity," undergraduate publication of
ih* University ot Toronto, was dismissed from his post by the Joint Executive
ot the Student's Administrative Council.
The entire staff of ths paper, in accordance with a previous decision,
walked out In support of their chief.
The dismissal followed the publication of an editorial to which the Administrative Council took exception.
Toronto,— L. 3. Ryan, editor*
in-ohlef of "The Varsity," University
of Tornoto, was "fired" by the Joint
Executive of The Students' Administrative Council.
The firing of Ryan, who ls a fourth
year St. Michaels College man, marks
the end Of a stormy career during
whioh a sword has been hanging over
.the editorial head for the greater part
of time. .
Discharge of the editor haa been
Imminent recently as a result of editorials on-"petting," and the vamping
of professors by co-eds to academic
advantage.
The Board of Governors and the
S.A.C. throughout last week engaged
In a buck-passing contest, wifh Ryan
as a subject but nobody wanted to
take the responsibility of firing him.
The story was front page stuff in
•the downtown press, and a hue and
cry was set up on the subject of student government.
Members of the Joint executive
met with the Board of Oovernors after Ryan had been advised to quit
while the quitting was good, and a
threat had been made to lock "the
Varsity" out of the University Press,
Ryan, however, had called a meeting
of his staff and secured unanimous
assurance, by 48* to 0 that if he were
squeezed out the whole staff would
go out with him.
Promised to be Good
On Monday of this week the editor
was up before the Joint executive.
He gave a guarantee that, henceforth
nothing in any way suspect, from the
most rigid of moral viewpoint would
appear In The Varsity.
Everything apparently was smoothed over. Yesterday, however, Ryan

Manager System To Feature
In A. M. S. Meeting
To-day
The outstanding Item for discussion
at the Alma Mater meeting at noon
to-day is the proposed business management system. With regard to this
Arnold Henderson, a member of the
committee which drew up the report
on conditions ln the Alma Mater Society, states that to have a business
manager would be simply elevating
the curator, giving him more duties,
The salary would be the same as now
paid to the Curator.
He felt that the detailed work Involved warranted the employment of
a salaried man. The manager system
would give a more rigid system of
financing, which would promote efficiency and economy. All members of
the finance executive should be selected and not elected, thought Mr. Henderson. He pointed out how a supply
of trained men would always be available trom which Important offices
could be filled. From managers of
minor teams gotfing routine work
done Freshman would be prepared for
positions in their Sophomore year ln
the Mamooks Club, as managers of
clubs or as curator. In their third
year these men would be presidents
of clubs and organizations and treasures, and ln their fourth year would bo
well trained for such positions as president of the Alma Muter, or Business
Manager.
rtus. Munn stated his objections to
the manager system to the Ubyssey.
The plan is too advanved for this University he believes. There Is not
enough work to warrant tbe payment
Members of Musical Society
Present Third Noon
A third noon-hour recital presented
by the Musical Society Wednesday
last ln the auditorium met with deserving success as the programme
was given by its own talented members. The artists who, performed
were Miss Nora Haddock, Mezzo-
Soprano, a male quartette composed
of Jack Chappell, C. Madsen, Tenors;
W. Sparks and S. Bowman, basses;
Oeorge H. E. Green occupied two
items with his cornet and Jack Chappell sang two solos.
The programme proved that talent,
either instrumental or vocal, la not
lacking at 'Varsity. Miss Nora Haddock, although unpardonably disturbed by late listeners who stamped in
between her A and B numbers, sang
three unfamiliar but no less charming songs. Her voice has a delightful quality which goes well with her
Interpretive powers. This one could
see ln 'lennes Flllettes' an 18th Century French composition, requiring
lightness and uncommon skill to
sing properly. "In the tlmo of Hoses"
by Reichardt and "Irish Lullaby" by
Needham were smoother und more
evenly flowing songs. Here also Miss
Haddock proved her capabilities. She
was ably accompanied by Miss Jean
Fisher.
"The Song of the Volga Boatman"
visited us once more but in a more
pleasant fashion than one ia accustomed to here. The vocal quar-
tetto of two tenors and two basses
surpassed all expectations in their
mastery of harmony singing. It was
regretted, however, that they should
have stood behind the accompanist for
ln sotto voce passages lt was difficult
to obtain full benefit of their voices.
Nevertheless their performance was
enjoyable.
Amongst the most gifted instrumentalists of the University is George

ORATORICAL AWARDS
ARE PRESENTED
Nipt Liming ni Pin! Murphy Win
Pniiir Honor?
Miss Hope Leemlng and Mr. Paul
Murphy were chosen as winners ot
the' Oratorical Contest on Tuesday
evening In the King Edward Auditorium, before an audience of some two
hundred people. The second places
were taken by Miss Margaret Muir-
head and Mr, Douglas McDonald. It
was a keenly battled contest and
all the speakers showed a high calibre
of oratory. In the words of Dr. Sedgwick, who announced the judges' decision, all the participants had "Borne
away palms not without dust."
The flrst address was given by Miss
Isabel Bescpby on "Rome." She showed the history and Importance of the
Eternal City has lasted for almost
thirty centuries, and in art, literature,
painting, and architecture, has produced many masters. Miss Bescoby
has a quiet and convincing manner of
presenting her remarks.
Miss Mary Carter followed with a
speech on "The Co-operative Commonwealth of the Grain Fields." It was
by far the most exhaustive discussion
presented, but suffered from too much
detail and not enough oratory. However no one would heve known by her
manner that this was Miss Carter's
flrst appearance on a platform.
Miss Hope Leemlng spoke on "Poetry and Leisure" and dwelt on the importance of appreciating poetry from
one's earliest youth. Her pleastng
manner of delivery soon attracted the
audience, and she was given liberal
applause when she concluded.
Miss Margaret Mulrhead then dellv-
ered an address on "A Tribute of
Youth." Her task was to construct a
temple In honor of Motherhood, end
she showed great originality and imagination In her treatment of the subject.

Carey Leads Field As Fifteen
Runners Struggle Through Snow
ARTS '31 WINS ANNUAL FIELD RACE WITH IS POINTS; SCIENCE '32 SECOND
Taking the lead In the last quarter mile, Dave Carey of Science '82,
led home a field of fifteen runners in the annual Cross-Country race on
Wednesday. J. Dunn tho favorite followed about 80 yards behind the
leader and a large gap separated him from Norm Terry and J. Chappell,
last year's winner.   Carey's time was 12 minutes 18 3-10.
Arts '31 scored the most points in the race, Terry and Chappelle piling
up 15 between them.   Science '32 came next with 12 and Arts '80 with 0.
Arts '32 obtained six, Science '80 six,
Science '29 four and Arts '29 three.
Fifteen runners toed the mark outside the Administration Building and
were started by Dr. J. Davidson at
3:15. For the first mile Selby held tho
lead despite the challenges from Chap*
pell and Dunn. Near tbe halt-way
mark the hard going told and he was
passed by Chappell, Dunn and Carey.
Chappell held on to his lead until
the last quarter mile. Here Dunn and
Carey spurted and passed him. Chappell made a game attempt and regained the advantage but the effort
was too much for him and he again
fell behind. Carey and Dunn fought
all the way but the Scienceman stood
the strain better and finished strong
well ahead of his rival.
Meanwhile the heavy going, especially oh the ploughed fields, had
spread out the runners. Nor. Terry
came striding out of the ruck and
overhauled and passed Chappelle In
the last 20 yards. Both men were ex*
hausted.
About 200 yards behind these, came
Selby and Hammett and the rest ot
the field straggled in at intervals.
The first 10 to finish were Carey,

LECTURES CANCELLED
All 1 o'clock lectures today
are cancelled on account of the
Alms Mater meeting, announces L. S, Kllnck, President.
The eating of spaghetti and the
crowds flocking to lectures are among
the leading impressions with which
one returns from Italy according to
the Rev. H. L. Trumpour in his illustrated lecture on "Things Seen In
Italy" given Tuesday noon in Agriculture 100 under the auspices ot the
S. C. M.
Owing to lack of time Mr. Trumpour selected from his large collection
of slides only those ot notable places
or works of art least often pictured,
giving at the same time a brief description of each. He was impressed
by the marvellous colorings of the
paintings, statuary and facades of
the old cathedrals of Venice, Florence,
Rome and Milan.
"Industry and study are the salvation of lite" was the Medieval conception, and this influenced their
subject matter and execution of their
works of art.
The speaker proceeded to say that
ln Rome tlie wonderful collection in
the galleries of the Vatican is made
up completely of stolen treasures;
while tho Slstlne Chapel, made
famous by the unrivalled paintings
of Michael Angelo, and now used for
the election of popes, is a sight
highly prized by those fortunate
enough to see it. A touch of humour

SENIOR "A" WOMEN TROUNCE
FELIXES DURING FAST
HOOP BATTLE
Varsity Hoop stars showed that
they can still play real basketball
when the Senior "A" women sent V.
A. C. Felixes home to the tune of
21-20 after a hard tussle on Tuesday
night in the V. A. C. gym. This puts
Felixes out. of the picture as far as
the championship Is concerned. Meralomas have a sure lead while Varsity has a possible chance of tying for
first place If it wins all the rest or
tbe games.
The game was by far tbe most
thrilling of tha season. FellxeB were
In the scoring mood and had lt all
over the co-eds In the first half. In
the last half Varsity went wild and
wrought havoc with the FellxeB to
squeeze ahead of them by a 21-20
victory.
Varsity put up a snappy exhibition
of fast playing and deserved to win.
The entire team played well and
fought hard. Rettie Tingley turned
ln her usual sterling game while
Jean Whyte and Rene Harris were
tho principal stars in th8 last half.
The game was remarkable for
fouling by both sides. In some places
lt resembled a free fight rather than
a basketball game. Varsity was determined to win "by hook or by
crook." The result was a large number of spills and free shots.
In the first quarter Felixes dominated the play. The co-eds could
not get possession of the ball. Rettie
Tingley scored for Varsity while
Felixes ran in tour baskets and a
free shot to make the score 9-2 at.
quarter  time.
The second quarter was much the
same' as the first. Felixes were still
pressing the play to their advantage.
It looked as if Varsity was ln for a
bad defeat. Felixes chalked up two
nice baskets and Jean Whyte scored
on a fast pass from Thelma Mahon.
Felixes retaliated wltb another basket.
Rettie Tingley made a free shot and
Jean Whyte brought tho score up to
15-7 by a spectacular basket. At half
time Felixes had a 15-7 lead.
In the third quarter the real thrills
began.   Up to this time the students
had been saving their energy. Felixes

MORE ABOUT FINANCE REPORT
To*<lii.v flt 12il5 noon tho Alma Mater Sooiety m««*tH io (IIhoumh
the finance report. Thia report is tho result of work and thorough
investigation on the part of the finance committee, and now It rests
with the students themselves to endorse or reject, according ns they
deem advisable.
In the last issue of the Ubyssey we printed that purt of the report
which was amended and endorsed by Students' Council, as a result of
thorough discussion on their part. .We printed, too, the unendorsed
portion of the report concerning the proposed Manager system and
gave our views on the whole subject.
Since then we have heard considerable discussion on the report
and its proposed changes. We agree with the writer of a letter we
publish in this issue who claims that too muoh emphasis is placed on
paid attendance at games, and not enough emphasis placed on encouraging everyone who can to participate in athletics.
Perhaps the main offences in this respect are recommendations
concerning the Mamooks Club. We fail to see why our University
should find it necessary to go in for organized boosting. One sees
enough of this in the street cars and in other parts of Vancouver.
Let the University be judged according to its true merits and not
by over-stressed publicity. Under section 10, clause (f), this phrase
appears: "That a committee be appointed to look into Traditions
under the Mamooks Club." We hope we are not detracting too much
from this report by suggesting that the finances of the University are
flt subject for investigation and should be, but the traditions of the
same institution are in a rather different class. They are far too
elusive and ephemeral objects, and would disappear into an unapproachable distance before the advance of a determined and systematic
committee of investigators. If a freshman is not permeated at the
'end of his first year by the traditions of his University it may be
questioned if there are any. We believe that this has been pointed
out in these columns before. The attributes of college spirit such as
pep meetings and organized rooting are only one form in which the
traditions may manifest themselves, and are not the actual force
itself.
THE FREEDOM OF THE PRE88
In view of the controversy which has been going on in Toronto
as a result of the "Varsity" editorials on "petting," we reprint in
this issue two editorials responsible for the dispute, along with
some of the views and interviews on the subject. From those items,
readers may judge for themselves whether or not tho editor of the
"Varsity" has been getting fair treatment when reprimanded by
the Governors.
Perhaps too, tlvse editorials hnve a value which will not lie lost
on our own readers Whether 'lis heller to pet or not Id pet we do
not know. The value of these editorials lies in their fearless presentation of a siihjrcl whieh is "taboo." Why discussion on pet line' should
lie  suppressed   when   the   practice  ilscll'   is  so   wide-spread   we   fail   lo
see.
TO PET OR NOT TO PET
Last week a prominent middle-aged clergyman told his hearers
in gentle tones and with irrefutable logic tlwit petting was dangerous' and that it should not, be, practised. The divine claimed that
petting was a new institution, that it exacted gestures intended only for the larger intimacies, and that it debased the coinage of the
soul.
It is not for undergraduates to contradict a man whose experience of the world has been so much greater than their own, but in
the light of our close connection with the younger generation who
are thus accused of debasing their souls, we should like to attempt
an explanation of our generation and of its actions.
In the first place we admit that although petting is a new institution it is a widely accepted one. We venture to say that, of
those who have had opportunities for experimentation in the Held,
almost no one can deny some knowledge of the art. We shall go
further and say that most of tho so-called conscientious objectors
are such because they have had no occasion to be otherwise, and
that the other objectors do not pet simply because it does not appeal to them as a diversion,—not because thoy have any moral
scruples. In fact petting as an institution has come to be recognized
by all who are not wilfully blind to existing conditions,
We confess that we cannot see in this situation any great cause
for alarm, nor can we see that the generation so much in the spotlight is in danger of losing its moral sense entirely. Tho pathetic
cry of the traditionalist is bound to remain unheard, for youth will
go on trying, and, if it finds them pleasant, clinging to all the
aspects of its new freedom. Just us standards of all kinds have
changed, the standards of morality have also changed, and whatever may he the attitude of parents on the subject of petting, for
those who indulge in it, the question of morality does not enter in
nt all. To them it is simply an exchange of amenities, in some ows
quite casual, whieh make no difference (except perhaps of deftness in their dealing with the opposite sex) when the "grand passion" is experienced     Parents who  realize this, and who wish  to
retain the confidence of their children, have long since given up
decrying modern conditions but have submitted gracefully to them.
Whether the reverend gentleman was right in his contention
that such conduct "debases the coinage of the soul" we shall not
say, but we hesitate to believe that the soul traffics in kisses, or
that a few of such, casually exchanged, are going to -have any permanent or devasting effect upon character.—Toronto Varsity.
ANOTHER VERSION
Wo had intended not to embarrass tho cause of peace by any
editorial pronouncement about this business but rather to depart in
our usual manner for the Elysian fields of discussion about the
League of Nations and the St. Lawrence Waterways. However,
since a certain amount of interest, has been aroused we think an explanation is expected.
Disapproval of the Governors resulted apparently from our discussion of *« curtain social custom of pleasure or sin. According to
au official statement this was the matter discussed and the discussion of another matter whieh has provided much space for the downtown press was not under review, Our explanation, then, must deal
with two points: first, the stand of the paper on "petting" and
second, the result of that stand.
A prominent clergyman was reported in our news columns as
having stated that "Petting is a new institution," and as having
criticized this new institution adversely. It is significant thut he
made this statement in a lecture under the auspices of tho Student
Christian Movement and delivered in the Muslo Itoom of Hart House.
He wus evidently of the opinion that what ho referred to was fairly
formidable and worthy of his consideration. A large crowd of men
heard him and this and other opinions that he expressed were the
subject of conversation and naturally the matter was taken up by
those who are supposed to write editorials about what the students
are thinking. An editorial was published which expressed tho opinion that the practice was condoned among most students.
Tho next step in our enquiry is "Did tho editorial misrepresent
the students?" A news story followed which showed that none of
the students interviewed had condemned the editorial or scored us
for misrepresentation. The tone of the answers shows that of those
interviewed none wero surprised at the question and all had some
views as to the character and extent of the practice. This news
story was written to obtain student opinion and to check up the
editorial. Letters were subsequently published opposing the view
that petting was permissable and the strongest of these was not an
attack on the editorial but on the opinions expressed by the students
interviewed. In other words the paper was serving its function,
that of being a medium of expression for student opinion.
That in doing this, the paper was "immoral," "abominable," ' n
example of the gutter press" etcetera is not our opinion and we
are confident that the majority of the students are of the same mind
with us on this question. But since certain of the authorities believe that the discussion waa in bad taste we aro willing to butt
forthwith from this column any mention of "petting," "vamping"
nnd kindred topics and to give specific instructions that in the other
departments of the paper direct or indirect references to any such
topics are scrupulously to be avoided. This statement is made
without our having received any official communication from any
body giving any instructions or advice as to our conduct of the
editorial column. This is indeed a tiny concession to make to preserve our paper from the systematic throttling that threatens it
and that would prevent "inconvenient" discussions of all sorts,
whether moral or intellectual or political. When this particular
discussion allowed the downtown press to be filled with talk about
the "immorality" of the student newspaper we could almost hear,
with Hright, "the beating of the wings of the angel of death," for
the paper to which we have given all our time, after our studies.

Musical Society Presents Program
(Continued from Page 1)
H. F. Green who played the "Elite"
Polka from   Boardman.    Mr.   Green
startled  those  in the audience,   unfamiliar with his technical skill.
He occupied two Items, the third
and last on the programme, and it
was obvious that the, audience ap*
predated his playing by applauding
him lustily when ho entered the platform for the last item. The "Elite"
Polka waa admirable In giving Mr.
Qreen an opportunity for technical
ltles but Sullivan's "The Last Chord''
gained more favour by Its melody
and tone.
Mrs. Qreen accompanied him.
It was a pleasure to hear Mr. Jack
Chappell as a soloist. He sang two
old favourites, Russell's "Vale" aud
"Mother Machree." Mr. Chappell has
a delightfully unaffected method of
rendering hla songs and this waa
especially to be noted In "Mother
Machree" was new to the audience
ln this respect and Mr. Chuppoll was
given full credit for his items.
The audience was disappointed thnt
Miss Frances MacDonald was unable
to play. Her programme from the
preceding concert waa not forgotten.
This closed the third Recital from
the Musical Society this Benson but
It is hoped, by no means the last.

Der Deutsche Verein
A meeting of "Der Deutsche Verein" was held on Monday evening at
the home of Eleanor Dyer. An enjoyable evening was spent ln acting
charades, playing games and singing
German folk songs. It wns decided
that three more meetings of the club
be held this term, the next one being arranged for Thursday, February
21.
ARTS '31 PREPARE FOR
COMMEMORATION GIFT
Arts '31 has a unique plan under
way for a commemorative gift to tho
University. It has been usual in the
past for this matter to be left to tbe
graduation! year, but Arts '31 has an
out of tho ordinary plan that they are
commencing now.
At the meeting, held on Thursday
last, Dr. Sage, Honorary President
for the year, enlarged on a plan un*
der which the members of '31 could
form the centre of a movement for the
collecting of British Columbia history.
Dr. Sage explained that this work
could be carried on most efficiently
by a class that has its members
acattored all over the province. Local history may be gathered by students that would otherwise be lost.
Old manuscripts, dispatches and private papers relating to the history of
the pioneer days of the province are
all of great value and can be obtained with the co-operation of the members of the year.
The whole plan Is being considered
by the year and seems to have met
with the approval of the members.
It is a chance for Arta '31 to get its
name on the map and with the cooperation ot the whole year it will
do something of a most concrete nature for University and the province.
Social Science Wants New Members
Applications for membership in the
Social Science Club will be received
by the executive until Wednesday

Diverse Opinions Expressed On "Petting
**
VANCOUVM
VICTORIA
r + :o
The controversy on "To pet or not
to pet," which has occupied the attention of Toronto University students
since the appearanco of the editorial
on that subject in the"Varsity" reached tho proportions of a typhoon recently. The discussion suddenly subsided at the instigation of the Board
of Governors of the  University.
Some of the flrst responses to the
editorial seemed to Indicate that petting was quite in accord with the sentiments of the majority of tho stu-
donts. Later onslaughts on the editor
seemed to indicate, however, that
there was good reason to doubt the
unanimity of the students on the subject. "Ninety-nine per cent of the
people pet, the other one per cent are
not worth [letting," 11. I). Hranlon, of
Trinity College, told the Varsity.
"There Is no i'msiiii." said lie, "why
anyone should raise a moral object-1
Hon unless they have a dirty and dis-|
giistlng mind. Girls are more particular with whom they pet than men
who start right off the bat."
The co-eds wore more or less reticent in expressing their views. Those
In favour did not give vent to such unqualified approval as the men. "I Imagine that some people object morally
to petting," said ono co-ed, "but everyone doesn't pet who gets the chance.
Women would rather pet than men—
they got more kick out of It than men
do."
In a later Issue a letter was published which commended the moderate
stand taken by the editor. The writer
admitted that he "petted" occasionally, but not Immoderately. He continued his letter as follows:
" I maintain It Is an institution as
old as life, not just, ono of the 'new
freedoms.'
"Your correspondent shrieks with
horror at the indulgence of human
passion. Hunger Is a human passion,
iind we eat. (Illesslngs on the Great
Hall and a lesser but generous blessing on the Tuck Shop, too). Religion Is a passion common to all tho
races, civilized and primitive—-n beautiful passion when Indulged In private.
(Antl deliver us from Hell-damning
evangelists,> Art is a pasHlon. Life
Is the more delightful as a result of
some of the efforts—hut only some.
The same correspondent will likely
hold Its (sexless) ears In horror when
I say that Love Is a passion --Ihe pasHlon without which we would not bo.
"Our prenent civilization is too muoh
given to suppressions- note the low
birth rate among the educated classes. I hate to be gloomy, but It sure
looks  like ruce suicide."
—Saskatoon Sheaf.
The Varsity- Toronto— Petting Is condemmed by letters addressed to the editor. A student signing
himself "Moral Pulchritude" writes
t litis:
"It is with a feeling of mingled
regret and surprise that I hnve read
your editorial oi the 22nd instant. "To
Pet or not to Pet." That anyone
should condone such practice ia mad
enough; that the Editor of the Varsity should do so ls beyond comprehension. Surely, Sir, you realize that
In your official position you exercise
an influence over thoso young and innocent persons, especially of the feminine sex, in their first year at the
University. That, this influence should
lie used Iii such a way Is a disgrace
both to yini and to the organ you represent.
"That petting is a widely accepted
institution, as you admit, can be attributed to the influence of persons like
yourself, who have refused to face
the issue squarely. In inferring that
the reason why the majority of the
younger generation who refrain from
this deplorable practice do so because
they have never had tho opportunity
to Indulge, you take a view of the morality of young men and women of today In which you are wholly unjustified.
"The majority of young people who
refuse to pet do so because they realize that lt most emphatically does
"debase the coinage of the soul" and
leave a permanently detrimental effect upon character. You, Sir, should
not furnish an excuse for those weak
individuals who though they well
know the sin of petting are looking
for any excuse to Justify their actions."
A woman signing herself "Iceberg"
speaks as follows:
"After first stating tha*. I am youngs
feminine and fairly normal, that I am
not so hopelessly unattractive aa never to have had a 'chance' to pet— this
Is not necessarily a boast-and that I
i do  not consider myself uniquely tho
l possessor of a 'dirty and disgusting'
mind', I should like to express myself
as   bored   mid   nauseated   by   various
opinions reportod In "Tho Varsity on
I this somewhat  salacious  subject.
I    "If  I am to be spokesman  for the
I slightly underrated one  per cent,  of
non-potters, I may state that i object
to petting from a moral and Intellectual point of view.   As far as morality
goes It is obvious that petting Is Indulged   lu   for   two   rational   reasons,
natural affection, and physical passion.
The  latter  cause   condemns  Itself   to
the decent minded.   In the case of the
former, 1 marvel at the great-hearted-

such tenderness to so many, simultaneously or in swift succession.
"But the vulgar stupidity of the
practice should condemn itself to us
who are ostensibly the 'salt of the
earth.' If the opinions expressed in
to-day's "Varsity", couched In the
same terms, had been reported from
factory workers we should feel pitying scorn for the minds and morals
of the 'lower class.' Yet In University students, If In any body of people,
tbe mind is supposed to triumph in
Home degree over matter, spirit over
body. It is not quite credible either
that conversation accompanying such
actions (petting) ls on a highly Intellectual plane, 'The weak old excuse of human nature'—reminiscent
of the notorious 'double standard' of
morals sometimes condoned by society
— should not appeal either to Christians, who know that since the fall,
human nature has been sinful in tendency, or to evolutionists who believe
that man ls on the ascent and must

word 'Christians' tn the above. Of

arguments are unnecessary."

Tisdall Cop Games
Put on Knockout Basis
At the meeting of the Vancouver
Rugby Union last week it was decided, due to postponements caused
by weather conditions and the lateness of the season to conduct the
Tisdall cup series on a knockout
basis cancelling the games already
played In this series. By this arrangement the semi-final will be
reached in three weeks time and the
finals can be concluded while the
Brockton grounds are available.
ln the new schedule which has
been drawn up Varsity plays the Bx-
Techs, at 8 o'clock next Saturday on
the Lower Brockton Point grounds.
Although the prevailing weather and
conditions of the grounds may cause
a further postponement of the game
the Varsity club Is prepared t.» give
the city team a real battle. Fifteen
stalwart and toughened ruggers who
have been chaffing under tho delays
and postponements will be ready next
Saturday to unleash the energy ac-
oumlated during the past months
training. Notwithstanding the snow
and Ice the team has turned out regularly to practice with the result
that they, are, according to coach
Tyrwhltt at the peak of strength and

Senior T Women Win From Felixes

things their own way and were tlved
out. Rene Harris opened the blue
and gold onrush by two baskets in
quick succession. Felixes made a
free shot and Rettie Tingley came
back with a basket on a fast pass
from Jean Whyte. The score now
stood 18-16 with Varsity fighting like
mad. Jean Whyte netted a basket
but Felixes retaliated with a free shot
to make the count 17-16
In the final period- the game ceased to be basketball and turned into
a free fight with girls falling over
each other in a wild attempt to get
the ball. The co-eds were out to win
and Felixes were out to hold them.
Jean Whyte made the score 17-17 but
Felixes retaliated to give them a 19-
17 lead. Free shots by Claire Menten
and Rene Harris tied the score 19-
19. The game was getting faster and
the playing was becoming more rough.
Felixes were having all they could
do to hold the oncoming students.
Rettie Tingley chalked up the crucial
basket of the evening by a spectacular shot after a fast pass from
Thelma Mahon. Felixes made a desperate spurt but failed to break the
stern blue and gold defense. A free
shot Just before the end gave Felixes
another point but the whistle blew
with Varsity victorious 21-20.
Rettie Tingley, Jean Whyte and
Rene Harris were the outstanding
players on the student team. The
Varsity team was as follows: Thelma Mahon, Claire Menten (1), Jean
Whyte (8), Rettie Tingley (7), Rene
Harris (5), Marge Lannlng, Mary
Campbell and Flo Carlisle.
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
May we, through your columns,
bring to your attention of the Upper
Classes of the Faculty of Applied
Science a deliberate insult offered
and an act of wanton destruction perpetrated by some of their First Year
members.
These men, during the past week,
entered the "Aggie" Common Room,
In the absence of all "Aggies," and
tore up the cow's head that adorned
the walls. This head, executed in
cardboard, was ono of the few
material relics of Fairview days on
the Campus, having been made about
10 years ago by men who have since
brought credit to this Institution.
We all appreciate aud enjoy tho
display of Faculty spirit, but cannot see the object of carrying Faculty rivalry to the point of destruction of property,
We feel sure that the Upper Classes will deplore, as we do, such an
act of vandalism and Ignorance, and
we would earnestly beg them to take
a hand In the education of their
Juniors and teach them that the
Spirit of Applied Science, ln the past,
has been one of sportsmanship and
friendly rivalry that has been appreciated and respected by all.
Yours truly,

Dear Sir:—
I feel moved to reply to the effusion
which appeared in your columns criticising Horatlus.
1. There was a doorkeep and a paid
bouncer to keep out undesirables at
the Arts '29 dance. Furthermore
their names are known to Horatlus.
2. If a member of the Senior class
appeared at tho door without his
tickets |he had no right to enter.
He had either failed to look up his
partner or had sold or given away
his ticket. Therefore In admitting
such a person the class president
has failed leniently In his duty.
3. In crushing Hl-JInks thu executive member made himself a laughingstock and so brought discredit on his
year of whom he is an elected representative.
4. Horatlus Is merely expressing
the opinion of the rest of the University una", has a perfect right to
comment on such regrettable incidents. The two authors of the letter
are supporting their executive ns a
matter of loyalty (1 hope there Is no
other reason), but they are supporting a lost cause.

Chess Games Proceed Apace
Considerable progress has been made
In the I'nivei'sity Chess Tournaments,
proceeding dally in tlie I'pper Men's
Common Room, and the final standings should be decided by next week.
In the championship, Cecil Yarwood
and M. F. Mcregor alone have perfect records, but have played only five
and two games respectively. Other
players well to the fore are R. A. Pllkington, with seven wins, two draws
and no losses; and J. Clayton, with
six wins, one draw and two defeats.
The minor tournament Is still a hectic free-for-all. McEachern, the demon
pawn-pusher, has already finished and
has a score of HV. out of a possible
17. J. Davidson still appears to be the
best bet for premier honors, although
yesterday he lost a hard game to
Ward.
DEBATES REACH DEADLOCK
"Resolved that the Present System
of Examinations should be Abolished"
was the bone of contention In n debate at Magee Parent Teacher meeting last week and again on Tuesday
before the Carleton Parent Teacher
Association.
1'pholding the resolution Hugh Morrison and Russell Shauemiin reversed
the adverse decision of Ihe previou.'
meeting by routing Prank Morley unil
Donald Watson. The unintuitive vigorously denounced the present examination system as militating against
the Ideals of the education. The
negative advanced the thesis that the
present sysiein could nm and should
not be abolished but amended. They
maintained that It bad too many merits to warrant Its abolition. The Judges and audience expressed their pleasure at the debating quality displayed.
Since this gives each team a victory
lt Is presumed a third meeting ls necessary to break the deadlock.
Mc6ill Daily Supports' 'Varsity''
(Continued from Page 1)
tore the lid off with a new editorial
of exceeding frankness. It read ln
part, speaking of tbe conference between the editor and the Joint executive:
"The President of the executive explained the course of the recent dispute, and stated thnt it was his duty
to the authorities and the students to
see to It ha no further cause for dispute would remain.
He did not explain why a third
party was sent to the editor asking
him to resign, before the Joint executive of the Students' Administrative
Councils met to consider the message
from the Governors. In other words,
the thing was to be smoothed over
before the student executives had
even met. In other words, the body
which claims to represent the students, and which ls now put up as the
controller of the situation, was not
considered of such high consequence
by one of the faculty representatives
who attempted to put the editor out
of the way before the meeting ot
those who are supposed to supervise
• he tone of the paper on behalf of the
fetudents."
Toronto,— ,The following statement was Issuod by L, J. Ryan to the
Press.
"I wrote the editorial which cannot be disproven by the Joint executive. I proveil that siTrHary-treus-
tirer lUirns issued it raise statement to
The Globe about ihe reduction ol salaried. Reductions were not proportionate. Since the Joint Kxecuiive
could not disprove tlie editorial, I was
dismissed. I challenge any member of
the Joint Executive to disprove the
statement In general or In particular.
"The articles on certain topics
should have endangered the freedom
of the paper which we have worked
to maintain ls bitterly regretted by
the Editor. That there are those who
would be only too glad to put us out
of the way Is also apparent to the
Editor. That the Executive of the
Students' Council should be used when
wanted and Ignored when not wanted
Ih a sad commentary on the consistency of those who attack the Editor
on the ground, forsooth, that he Is
nol   serving   the   students.
Protested in Vain
"We have protested, but In vain,
We have fought against misrepresentation and lobbying, which have con
stltuted official policy. Olllclnl policy has steadily aimed at our dismissal. The lobbying before Joint executive meeiints done by Dunlop Is 0'ily
the parallel to the lobbying done In

was not savory to officialdom.

Dear Sir.
In reading over the report of the
special committee which was published in the Ubyssey last Tuesday, It
seemed to me that too much emphasis was placed on the financial
ability of the various forms of nth
letics. Sports are not for making
money, and the sooner that fact is
realized the better it will be. It would
be far better for this university if
one thousand students took an active
part in some form of sport, than
that this thousand should spend their
time watching a few play. Athletics
are to strengthen our bodies, and
teach us how to play the game of
life, and not commercial concerns for
making profits.
If we start out with the idea that
athletics are at the university to support its activities financially their
real worth will be lost sight of and
then we might just as well not have
any at all. If the university has to
have money let it be obtained from
some other source. If athletics fulfil
their proper function In this university they will be doing far more good
(ban could ever be done with the
money gained by using sports for
making  money.
Yours sincerely
E, W. HORTON.

the nudity of his figures caused him

Professor Trumpour pointed out
the grace and beauty of the Greek

the medieval conception through
their works of art from tho belief
