Canadian Ruggers Defeated 54-0.   Varsity Plays Well
but Goes Down Before Experienced Team
On Saturday last the University of British Columbia Intercollegiate
Rugby team went down to defeat at the hands of the College of Puget Sound
to the tune of 64—0. Although it was a disastrous defeat In a senso, the
fighting spirit of the TJ. B. C. eleven was displayed throughout and they were
not at any time walked over. The Varsity boys were proud to have been
defeated at the hands ot a team like C. P. S. They were magniflcant sportsmen at all times.
The first quarter was marked by the typically American running interference plays. Time after time their backs would sweep around the U. B. C.
end, protected by a perfect running screen of which Varsity could not learn
the key. In this manner U, B. C. goal line was crossed for touchdowns too
frequently for comfort.
The second quarter was marked by much the same style of play. U. B. C,
men began to fathom the American code and C. P. S, did not find it quite so
easy. The great majority of their points were rung up beforo the half-time
The third quarter found U. B. C fighting harder than ever and there was
a marked Improvement in stopping the running interference plays. For the
first time in the game C. P. S. found themselves thrown back for losses on
attempting to run the ball around the ends. Newby, Seed and Mahon distinguished themselves in this quarter by some brilliant ball running and handling while Morris and Gamble on the ends were deadly in their tackling.
Failing in their previous stylo of play C. P. S. introduced the forward pass
for the first time. Only one-third of their forward passes were completed
but these were, in almost every instance, so admirably timed and placed
that scores were made.
The final quarter was a continuation of the third as far as play was
concerned. U. B, C. fought as hard or
harder than ever. It was one of the
outstanding features of the game that
Varsity was going harder in the second halt than in the first. The final
quarter ended in glory for C. P. S.
when they pulled off three beautiful
forward passes that scored. One of
these was no lea* than forty-five
yards in length and was accurate
and deadly as a bullet.
Very little more can be said about
the game except that U. B. C.'s team
learned many valuable lessons that
will be used to advantage in the
games against Washington and Bellingham.
The support given the team by the
Varsity rooters was magnificent. It
can be said without fear of contradiction that the cheering section responded even In defeat better than
any U. B. C. cheering section has
done for many a day. C. P. S. had a
small but enthusiastic section and
their cheer leaders did Varsity the
courtesy of leading the cheering several times. All this was noted and
appreciated by tho Varsity and ('. I'.
S. teams.
As a final word nothing better
could be said than that the spirit
shown by C. P. S. was truly sportsmanlike. If defeat It had to be, Varsity Is glad to havo been defeated by
such a team as C. P. S.
Drivers of Cars Must
Observe Regulations
Among the many new problems
facing the Student Body at Point
Orey Is the matter of the control of
automobile traffic along tenth avefiue.
It. Is all very well to argue that the
traffic rules must be enforced by the
officers in charge, but let It be remembered that the University is Judged
partly by the personal conduct of the
students, If students use tenth avenue as a speedway, arrests will follow, and the reputation of the
University will suffer by gaining unpleasant notoriety In police records,
The traffic officer on tenth avenue
wishes all student drivers to use the
right side of the completed boulevard
In going co town, and issues a warning that he Is going to deal harshly
with those who persist In keeping
to the left side. The officer, who is
a college man himself, hopes that the
student's will be reasonable In their
driving, thus promoting a spirit of cooperation between tho students and

Pep" Programme
Proves Pure
Music Only Redeeming Feature.
Little Enthusiatim Shown
It has been said that Arts '28 put on
a Pep Meeting last Friday. Perhaps!
Well, anyway, ono of their members
occupied the — er — the place where
the chair should have bean, and
Sophs composed the orchestra (and
the music, too, It seemed).
After tho orchestra had overtured
Itself, and after Mr. Madeley bad
strolled down the aisle clad In a smile
and bis oversize pants (size 37 y»"
diameter sit tho base) and after several gentlemen had Indulged In a
feeble yell which went something like
"Hah!   Hah!   Hdli!   ROTTEN!!"
After these things had taken place
the worthy chairman spoke, we are
told by those who heard, a few words
about the object of tho meeting.
Fred Guernsey, president of Men's
Athletics; Lever Bates, operator of
the B. C. E. R. bus, and Harry Seed,
captain of the Canadian Rugby team
spoke—more or .ess. Tommy Berto,
minute and peppy, was then Introduced as the new yell leader by Brick
McLeod. As Elsinore murmured "It
was Just like hoary age giving place
to rosy Infancy."
The orchestra then rendered another item, giving the assembled students a chance to read Mr. Mc-
Ooockle's page of the "Ubyssey."
This must have been very Interesting,
because there was much applause and
many demands for an encore.
Immediately after Mr. Rose's speech
urging the students to turn out and
support the Canadian Rugby team (of
which he Is coach), the Science men
turned the audience's mind from high
thoughts to the ridiculous with their
feeble attempt to portray (In unison)
a cat fight by moonlight.
Recalling the audience again from
the ridiculous to tha sublime, Tommy
Wilkinson, In his best llsten-to-papa
style, reiterated his official intentions
for the coming year. Among other
things he ordered Casey Castleman to
lead his gang of back door loungers
away from the sacred portals of the
auditorium; he told the students (In
effect) that as the University was not
a social institution they must, therefore, turn out to the games and put
on a little more of the rah rah stuff
for which they are world famous; and
he reminded them that at |fce. student

Details Connected
With Ceremonies
Seat Tickets Must Be Presented
at Door. Academic Dress
to be Worn.
Developments are taking place with
an alarming rapidity In regard to the
inauguration ceremonies which are being held on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week. Requests for admittance to ihe Friday ceremonies are
pouring In from all sides, but owing to
the lateness of the time, must be ignored. Every seat in the auditorium Is
already taken so it is absolutely impossible for the remainder to get in.
The committee Wishes to call attention to the time limit on the tickets.
On each ticket is a time limit beyond
which the seat will, under no circumstances be reserved. As a result
people who come later than the time
on their ticket specifies will find
themselves without a seat. The seats
vacated In this way will be turned
over to those whose applications have
been received lata and which have not
been answered.
Furthermore, in order to avoid confusion, the committee wishes to announce that the large.invitation card
toes not admit the holder to either the
'ntibguratlon ceremony or congregation. Admission will be granted only
to those possessing the small numbered seat ticket. Moreover at the
general assembly for students the
large card is not essential and need
not be brought. Those wishing to
sain admission must, however, have
the small tickets. These can be pro-
-""«d at the office.
The assembly ot the sttnhnrfff Will
take place on Thursday sharply at
two o'clock. Students are requested
to be In the hall by 1.30 at the latest
In order that the ceremonies may go
on with the least possible disturbance.
Music will be provided until the program commences.
All members of Convocation and
Graduates are asked to wear full
\cademlc costume at all ceremonies
'n the hall. The committer lu requesting this on account of the general
desire that, on this occasion, the colours of the U. B. C. faculties be well
Moreover all students possessing
<jowns are requested to w»ar them to
add to the academic tone of the gathering on Thursday afternoon.
Ross Bryson to be
Basketball Coach
Ross Bryson, Varsity's coach of last
year, has consented to coach again.
Ross Bryson worked hard with last
year's material and made a championship team of them and the students
are hoping that he can do the tame
thing again this year. Coach Bryson
will be unable to coach as often this
year but with the assistance of "Doc"
Pentland, the team should be able to
get under way soon. In order to facilitate practices, the teams will be divided Into two sections with separate
practice hours for each. There will
be a general turn out to-night and the
players will be assigned their hours
then.   Everybody must turn out!

Reception at Lester's Proves
Bigger and Better than ever
Last Friday the blithering, quivering, slithering mast once mora seethed, rocked, swayed, and—yet, even
good-naturedly cussed—to the syncopated strains of Leo's Httle boys la Its
annual effort to recent the Freshman,
The walls of Lester's bulged noticeably in an effort to hold the record-
breaking crowd, and the bodies of
those who died heroically from heat
and suffocation were piled under the
balconies. Freshmen, in their first
longs, strutted newly-acquired steps,
and demure freshettes in short frocks
with dainty sashes did their best to
follow. Seniors heroically left their
beds to make martyrs ot themselves
—and why?—merely that the Fresh
might be recepted In the good old-
fashioned way.
There were eats. too. Those who
were lucky enough to get down In the
first contingent saw little heaps of
chicken sandwiches and dainty cakes
and a small army of coffee purveyors. The punch, too, must he given
due mention. Far from being the
usual harmful grape extract, It was
nice pure lemonade punch, a guaranteed thirst quencher, but not detrimental to the freshies, even If taken
in large quantities.
After supper Vaughn Moore and
his prettiest assistant, In their Inimitable way, showed how ugly the
Charleston really is. Of course this
did not provent even one from trying it out for himself in the next
dance, but the unanimous conclusion
was reached that it should be left to
Vaughn Moore, after all.
Altogether, to express It In that
new catch phrase,, "a pleasant time
was had by all" (Who recovered),
First Soccer Team
DownsJRoyal City
Play fairly even aa abown by
2-1 score.
Varsity's first soccer team emerged
on the long end of a 2-1 count at Westminster Saturday and thereby proved
that they are up to Pacific Coast
League calibre. It la true that the
Westminster United squad were not
there In full force but the collegians
were also minus the services of Bill
Phillips, their star centre half, Cy.
Manning, a new addition to the team,
played the position admirably. The
■vhole Varsity team showed their old
time pep and dash, and should make a
good showing this year.
Play opened briskly and It was apparent from the) outset that it was
going to be a torrid encounter. The
"tudents played up hill in the first
stanza and Varsity forwards kept the
Royal custodian busy. The efforts of
the Varsity sharpshooters were finally
rewarded when Tommy Wilkinson
connected with a fast cross from Rex
Cameron's boot and sent in a shot
that beat the opposing goalie to a
standstill. The score stood at one
nothing at the Interval.
Upon resumption of play the homesters came back strong and only stellar defence tactics of the collegian's
backs and goalie kept them out. After
twenty minutes of play Newcombe
scored for Varsity, getting the ball
from a rebound. This reverse seemed
o put new life Into the Westminster
'ieven and they bombarded Mosher
from all angles but that astute net
minder waa right on the Job and only
once failed to get his mitts on the
ball. Adam Kerr planted himself In
the way of a cross and the ball was
deflected Into the opposite corner from
which Heggle expected It to go.
The Royals tried hard ro equalise,
the play became very rough, and referee Marion showed a decided leniency In awarding fouls which later
had serious results as Adam Kerr and
Buckley staged a free for all In the
last few minutes of the game and
were ordered off. When the whistle
went for time the collegians lead by
an odd goal In three and by so doing
won their first Pacific Coast League
encounter. THE   UBYSSEY

Saturday's game must have
convinced even the most optimistic enthusiast that the time has
not yet arrived in this University
for the playing of American intercollegiate rugby. The match with
Puget Sound waa a fair test. Our
men were as prepared as they
could be, and they played their
very best. Their defeat, though
not as overwhelming as the score
indicated, was decisive.
Rugby, ns played in American
Colleges, is u serious business. The
players are taught from their
Freshmen days nil the science of
the game by men who are paid,
generally out of alumni funds, to
do nothing else but coach rugby,
Until U. B. C. has grown to a
size making possible a similar status for the sport here, playing with
American rugby teams is folly.
Every one, of course, realizes that
the clay will come eventually. This
University is certain to grow rapidly and extensively, while the distance between Vancouver and
other Canadian varsity teams is
not likely to decrease. Our future
is indissoluhly linked with Hint of
other Pacific roller's,
But for the present, while we
are yet an institution only one-
sixth the size of our average American neighbor, and therefore in no
position either to muster talent
or to pay for its development, let
us concentrate our energies on the
truly amateur nnd more local athletics represented in the Canadian
and English rugby games.
All honor to our Canadian Rugby men whose ambitions put the
matter to the test. But for future
contests, it is our hope that athle-
ic executives will accept the t'net
that the playing of American intercollegiate rugby at P. B. C. is
as impossible now as it is inevitable in the future.
The average student, on picking up bis twice weekly issue of
the PliyNsey, promptly skips the
important ileitis on lite front page,
pusses over Hie tnuek columns
with tpiiet contempt, and si/t s
with eager avidity upon the editorials. Such, at least, is the
hope of the editors, who rack
their brains twice a week to lay
jewels of thought before the student body.   But our editor-in-chief,
a man of wide experience, and a
jaundiced outlook on life, refuses
to encourage these hopes—and
just two weeks ago instructed the
printer to use bigger type in
printing these gems, that they
might be forced upon the sight of
all students. Now if this is bo, it
is really unfortunate—for, if we
have not the world-wide experience of the clown town scribes, we
at least have the interests of our
university at heart, and through
our positions are in touch with all
student activities. With these assets, we really try to instruct or
inform the student body on sub-
jects of general interest—but if
these efforts are not appreciated
we most certainly do not wish to
continue them. Perhaps some students would be so good as to inform us, through the medium of
our columns, just what value or
interest our editorials have for
them each issue.
While the term is yet young, the
I'byssey wishes to whisper a word
in the ears of those executives who
eoiilrnl the entrance to functions
tor which  admission  is charged,
To ensure proper mention of
such events in the college press, a
reporter must attend. Xow, even
the purse of a reporter is not elastic, and a complimentary ticket
oil en proves a very present help.
Many of the older organizations
al P. It. C. are cognizant of this
and act accordingly, hut these are
others to whom we drop the humble hint.

Warm midnight, with a ponderous,
yellow moon . . . .; the city street
knitted over with distorted bars nnd
grey patches of shade, commlnglings
of sallow beams with the lesser lamp-
shafts . . .; only the noisy echoes of
my own homeward-hurrying feet,
Then, the Bound of another, approaching.
As he nears, the moon's light In his
forward path and the gleam from a
pole at his back, each fastens upon
him a shadow. Before htm strides
with mutual feet a sturdy, clear-cut
counterpart enlarging as we approach.
Behind lurks a dwarfed, Indefinite
form, bearing little resemblance to the
other shadow, yet somehow retaining
unpleasant Irregularities similar to the
more rugged of the stranger's outlines.
We meet and pass, he to turn to his
right, glance back, and traverse a
darker side-street, and I to proceed,
peering backward over my shoulder.
And now a second lamp has reversed the position of his silent companions—dwarfed and disfigured likeness to the fore, (deepened now and
enlarged), the formerly stalwart figure
pushed aside, paled and greatly diminished.
And after I had reached my bed,
I lay in restless thought for long black
hours. For, somehow, I could think
of little but you, and our great friendship of last year.

The Man and His Accomplishments
Born of sturdy Scotch stock in the town of Pictou,
Nova Scotia. R. P. McLennan early listened to the
lure of the West, arriving in Winnipeg in 1862.
Spending two years there, he came to the Pacific
Coast, and arrived in Victoria in 1884.
With the indomitable courage so pronounced in
those early pioneers, he and Mr.E.J.McFeely formed
the firm now known as McLENNAN, McFEELY
& CO., LTD., opening in Vancouver in 1886. This
firm gives employment to over 200 persons and is one
of the largest commercial houses in Western Canada.
In 1898 the firm decided to open a branch in
Dawson City, and Mr. McLennan went north to take
charge of the same. So respected was he by the
citizens of the community that in 1903 he was chosen
as the mayor, and served his term with dignity and
He is a past president of the Board of Trade, a
Vice-President of the Exhibition Association, and a
Governor of the University of British Columbia.
For many years he has made his home in Burrard
Always a patriot and a lover of the Union Jack,
during the war he gave his four stalwart sons to the
Empire, the youngest of whom paid the supreme
The faith and vision which characterized his
pioneer efforts have not abated one whit. He has a
pride in the city's past, a courageous hope in its great
future, and, because of these, he feels it is in the best
interests of business that he otters his services to the
House of Commons, at Ottawa, where he can work
for Vancouver and British Columbia.

Hints for Lit. Bugs
The literary editor of this paper
ha3 asked me to give the public a
few hints on how to write an acceptable poem for the "Literary Corner."
It is, in the first place, easier now
than when I started, because vers
llbre has since been invented. When
you write vers llbre, don't bother
about rhyme schemes or metre; just
write prose and cut It up into little
lines so that the finished appearance
of a poem gives nn Impression of li:il-
anc without, symmetry. It Is called
free verse because of its price. A
very clever contributor to these columns writes a verse every week beginning "Believe rue, brother," so you
see how simple it all Is.
I myself have personally written
some very flno poems which the editor is saving until the Froshtes have
acquired some literary taste, The
most Important thing nbout any poem
is the first line; that Is what sells tho
poem. Editors are always too busy
doing nothing to read more than the
first line or so of anything, and that
is why a lot of things get printed.
It Is, as you see, essential to have a
good, strong first line; and above all
never express negation In it. I know
of one very fine piece of work that
startod out, "I tear It will not como
to pass." and when the editor read
that, his mind was so delicate and
open to suggestion that he simply
said, "Of course, the chap's absolutely
right," and he threw tho poem In the
w. p. b. which Is what we wrlteiB call
the waste paper basket.
I have a number ot first lines that
I cannot attach poems to (I may say
that this Is the one weakness of the
method) but I am suggesting ono that
has puzzled me for a long time. Anyone wishing may use It, because li Is
not copyrighted and the poems should
be turned In at once to the literary
editor. Tho lino has some excellent
should lend Itsolf to Home pretty as-
alliteration, suggests romance, and
"Stars In night's blue abyss ablaze."

New Fables in Slang
By George Fads
Onoo Upon a Tlmo a Bimbo came
to the U. n, C. from Oollchan Siding.
He was the Son of Honest Parents
who had Named him Wycanturest in
Honour or the First Sleeping Car the
P. 0. E. ever Operated. Two of his
Brothers were Yet Unnamed because
tlio Road had not Added to Its Rqulp
ment. In due Course the Youth became a Freshman, but Disguised hit.
Simple Origin behind a Mask of Sophistication. He Sought Henceforth
to he called a Wise Guy who Knew
his Onions.
At this Time there Came to the Varsity a Frail Member of the Speaker
Sex from a Certain Whistling-Post
called Prince George. She was the
Queen of the Frosen Northland, a
Rural Panic, a pulse-Qulckener. Her
Parents had Baptised her with the
.Names of Three Neighbouring Lakes.
But because we May Seymour of Hor,
we will Tell you that she Read Regularly the "Vancouvor Stun" and had
Chosen to Call Herself Gloria. And
because She was Very Dumb she had
Hopes to Get By with her Beauty.
Our Hero came Late to the Frosh
Reception and Found that Hot Numbers were as Scarce as June-Bugs on
Ice-Skates. But by Clever Line-Bucking and Personality, he Filled Half of
His Dances before he Lamped Gloria.
It was Community Plate with Thorn
Both; a Case of Love at First Sight.
But when they Convened to Arrange
a Dance, they Found that Ono hud
All the Evens and the Other had All
the Odds. And Though Each had
Half a Programme Open, they Could
not Dance Together, and the Evening was Sour.
Moral: When some People Die of
Thirst, It Rains Peanut-Butter.
Believe me, brother,
From now on,
I'm through with women.
On Friday night
At the Frosh reception
I met a nice, very nice
Beautiful Freshette.
And do you know
She was intelligent
A good talker,
With a sense of humor
A pleasing smile
And a snappy dancer.
I forgot to ask
What her name was
Slnco then
I have visited
The library sixteen times

Varsity Juniors showed surprising
form In their game with the undefeated North Shore squad. They made
the winners step all the way, and with
a little better understanding, might
easily have forced a' draw. With a
rew changes in tho line-up, and a little
more team play, the Juniors will be
heard from this year. Up to shortly
before time the score was 3-2, but an
unfortunate penalty and a soft last
minute goal, rrade things look much
worse. Both Varsity's counters came
from corner kicks taken by Todd, the
young Freshman, who should settle
down to be a real acquisition, with a
little mure confidence. Duffle and Rid-
ler connected.

Should beginners and those who are
not of the eighteen chosen for the
first and second teams have ofilclally
allotted to them any of the precious
time which the teams need for practice?
The executive of the past two years
asked Itself this question and has
decided no. Once more the same
question has come up before the executive and this year it has decided
yea—with qualifications.
A half hour on Monday and Wednesday, from 6:00 to 5:80, will b« given for this purpose, If sufficient girls
turn out to make it worth while.
Flora Musgrave will coach or. Mondays.
The programme for next year has
not been fully decided on, but will
be  announced   later.
A Mystery Explained 1
By X.I.X.
At Inst tho great conundrum has
heen solved! The question that all
Intelligent students have heen debating in the common rooms, on the playing Ileitis, on tho campus, yea, even
in the lecture rooms, has been answered. Now, at last, we know the
reason lor that design on the library
floor. Some there wore, who said
that the black and white squares on
the floor were but surviving remnants
of the cross-word puzzle age. Others
insisted that they were made to harmonize with the Oothic (or Is It
Tudor?) design of the building. But
the real explanation Is to be found In
last week's news Item which reads:
"Chess Club Revived.
 use tho concourse floor for the
fall tournament.   For further information tee the librarian."
All applicants for the Women's Literary Society must be In by Wednesday noon. List will be posted In the
Arts Building on Wednesday afternoon.

Second Soccer Team
is Defeated 6-0
U. B. C. suffered itt first defeat
of the season when It faced the Chinese Students at Gamble Park on Saturday.
Varsity kicked off and carried the
ball In snappy pastes near the opposing goal. Bplilsbury made a long
erots to the outside right, who In
turn, let loose a fast drive Just topping the bar, Chinese Students worked the ball down to Varsity's penalty
area but missed a golden opportunity
directly In front of the goal. A second later they made up for this when
the inaide right sent a low fast shot
fiatt Sutherland. A scrimmage in
ront of goal resulted in the Chinese
scoring their second; the ball bounced
oft a player's foot, rolling between
the posts. The opposition chalked
another tally from left corner when
the ball made a rebound and dropped
at a difficult angle for "Flea" to save.
Play went in both directions, but the
Varsity boys were unable to get within close shooting distance.
After half-time the blue and gold
remained on the defensive and fought
stubbornly to hold its own. Partridge
touched the ball near centre. The
foul-kick was directed toward the outside left who fired "dead-on" for the
fourth counter. The fifth and sixth
goals followed In close succession.
The first meeting of the Hockey
Club took place on Thursday. Judging
from the speed In which the "puck-
chasers" conducted their meeting,
there is going to be a very fast hockey
team this winter.
The main business done was the
election of officers. They are as follows:—Honorary Pres., Prof. Christie;
Pres., George Bell, 8c. '28; Vice-Pres.,
H. Hodglns, Science '28; and Sec-
Treas., C. Doberer.
Activities will commence as soon
as the Ice arrives. Probably the first
practice will be held two weeks from
Wednesday. All would-be hockey
stars will be given two, or more,
chances to prove or disprove, their
right to a place on the teams.
A meeting of the Pianists' Club
will be held on Wednesday, October
14th, at the home of Miss Ida Kerr,
1947 Union Street at 8 o'clock sharp.
As there are at present several vacancies In the Club, applications for
membership, addressed to Mr. C. Mad-
sen, Arts '28, will be given consideration. A short list of representative
plecea is requested in the application, alno the standing of tho applicant.
