Dr. Thomas Gives Interesting
Address Friday Noon
"Jesus, the Adventurer," was the
subject on which Dr. Thomas gave an
inspiring address to the students last
Friday noon. "Jesus" said Dr. Thomas,
"staked his life on the word of God—
and won!" The lecture made an appeal
for students to place their trust on
God's word.
Dr. Thomas is from Toronto. He is
on the Methodist Mission and has been
actively associated with Christian conventions in the east.
This address is but one of a series
which the S.C.M. is arranging. It is
expected that Rev. Nelson A. Harkness, secretary to the Kiwanis Club,
will address the students next.
The Students' Christian Movement
while of no particular denomination,
strives to furnish an outlet • for religious inclinations and to satisfy the
instinctive need of students. They believe in Christ, the founder of Christianity. They believe that a fuller and
more satisfying life is realized in
studying and in seeking to follow His
teachings. They believe the Bible to
be the medium through which they
can learn His wishes.
Meetings are held at 10 and 11 on
Tuesdays and Wednesdays respectively in Dr. Eastman's office and at 11 on
Fridays in Dr. Buchanan's office, when
Prof. Trompour of the Anglican Theological College will give instructive
talks.    Everyone is welcome.
This is the last year that the students of U.B.C. will be housed in the
wooden shacks of Fairview, unless
some very disastrous calamity befalls
the workmen at the Point Grey site,
where the work on the permanent
units and the semi-permanent structures is being rushed at top speed.
The student body need have no more
fears as to the success of their great
campaign led by Jack Grant and Ab.
Richards two years ago.
A visit to Point Grey now shows
that the Science building will be ready
for occupation next September, the
present unit being almost completed
on the inside and the stone work finished on the outside. It was just a
year ago that the student body saw
Dr. McLean place the corner stone in
The library building'which was commenced later is rapidly being finished

Popular Member of Graduating Year Awarded $50.00.
Competition Keen This Year.
"The One Deserving," a one-act play
by Miss Dorothy Taylor, of this year's
graduating class, will be produced by
the Players' Club at its annual Christmas performances. Miss Taylor is the
second member of the student body to
win ttie $50 prize annually offered by
the club, Miss Annie Anderson, of Arts
'23, being the first. Last year, although there were three contestants,
no award was made. This year ten
plays 'were entered, among those contesting being Misses Dorothy Taylor,
Fern James, Agnes Gillen, Messrs.
Cliff Dowling, Geoffrey Bruun, Geof-
fery Riddehough, Kenneth Caple,
Harry Warren and John MacKay.
Miss Taylor's play is a study of conflict in the life of two girls, a moment
of crisis forming the substance of the
drama. The finale, although unexpected, is quite convincing, and true to the
character depiction preceding.
As a curtain-raiser will be given a
delightful satiric little comedy, "Figurehead," by Louise Landers, with its
setting in an Oriental kingdom. The
other two plays on the bill are Bar-
rie's, "The Old Lady Shows Her Medals," judged by many the best one-act
play of the war, and "The Dollar," a
satire on the universal worship of
money, by the Yiddish dramatist,
Eavid Pinski.
The dates of the performances are
Thursday, November 20th, and Saturday, November 22nd, for the student
body, and Friday, the 21st for the
Faculty, Board of Governors and
friends of the members of the club.
The annual Players' Club reception,
at which new members are welcomed,
and graduates reunited, will be held on
Hallowe'en, October 31st. This reception, always one of the most delightful of the college year, is eagerly anticipated by those privileged to attend.

Applications Now Due For
Much Coveted Honor
Students of the sophomore and
higher years who are anxious to enter
their names for the annual Oxford
Scholarship of £350 sterling, bequeathed by the late Cecil J. Rhodes to
one elegible scholar from each province of the Dominion, are asked to
hand in their applications to Prof. H.
T. Logan, secretary of the Selection
later than Monday, October 20th. The
final election of the Rhodes scholars
for B. C. will take place near the latter part of November. Those who
have not already been advised as to
the requirements of the candidates
will find full particulars in the memorandum. They are in the hands of
the secretary.
The scholarship system established
by C. J. Rhodes, great expander of the
British Empire and former owner of
the famous Kimberly diamond mines,
should support at Oxford for the term
of three years each, one hundred and
seventy-five selected students from the
British Empire and United States of
Amercia, each individual receiving
£300 annually. In the provinces of
Canada and states of Australia four
collegiate schools of Cape Colony, in
the Dominion of New Zealand, and in
the colonies of Natal, Jamaica, Ber-

U. B. C. Representatives  Now
Chosen for Important Event
Tryouts for the Oxford Debate were
held last Wednesday when eighteen
students participated. Among these
were some very promising speakers
from Freshmen and Soph, classes, who
should, with proper coaching, develop into first class debating material.
The judges, Messrs. Angus, Boggs and
MacDonald, declared that seven of the
speakers were worthy of a second
tryout. Thursday was the day selected and from the seven J,. Craig, '25,
S. Kobe, '26, and Murray Hunter, '26,
were chosen. Eric Dunn '25 and G.
Telford '26, will serve as alternates.
Eric Dunn will also manage the team
and intensive training has already
started. For training purposes J.
Craig, S. Kobe and E. Dunn will advance arguments in favor of Socialism, while M. Hunter and G. Telford
will oppose them.
The other two members of the Oxford Team accompanying Malcolm
MacDonald, are J. D. Woodruff and
M. C. Hollis, both of whom are past
presidents of the Oxford Union. The
present arrangements are that one of
the University of B. C. men will support Woodruff and Hollis in upholding
Capitalism, against the attacks of the
other two U. B. C. men and Malcolm

U.B.C. and X-King George
Victors at Brockton Point
Malcolm Lange is Varsity's new
Rugby hero following the first appearance of the blue and gold on the field
at Brockton Point last Saturday when
ilL&IL_def«ated the .Wanderers 23-0
and Varsity lost to the ex-King George
fifteen by "a 3-0 score. The college
teams showed up well for their first
appearance and from the display made
by the fast stepping U.B.C. squad it
became apparent that the Miller Cup
would be retained.
The team known in the league as
U.B.C. consists of the pick of the forwards of the college, while the Varsity
crew contains the three-quarter line
that will probably make the McKechnie cup squad.
Opening the season for the college
in the game with the Wanderers,
U.B.C. led the attack at all stages
showing a decided superiority in all
branches of the play. The forwards,
led by Lange, showed the packed
grandstand some of the insides of the
Gustafson led off in the scoring of
the afternoon shortly after the whistle
blew when he fell on the ball after a
fine run by the threes. Lange failed
to convert from a difficult angle. Although the Wanderers took the offensive time after time they could not
reach the college danger zone and the
U.B.C. men scored their second try
when Lange secured near the line and
dashed over. He made a difficult convert.
Lange again stepped into the limelight when he received the ball by intercepting a pass 30 yards out. He
made a fine run and scored before
either his team mates or the Wanderers realized what had happened. He
converted his try. This completed
the scoring of the first period, with
U.B.C. holding the long side of the
13-0 score.
The second half was much the same
as the first period had been and the
collegians continued to press during
most of the play. Murphy and Domoney put in some fine work while the
whole team showed a decided interest in team play.
Brock opened the second half, scoring when he crossed the line from
some loose scrum work five yards out
and Lange with his deadly toe connected with the ball and converted
from the touch line.
McPherson gave a display of the
finest piece of fake passing that has
ever been seen in this district when
he received from a scrum ten yards
out of the scoring area. He lifted the
ball as if to pass it to the threes and
the Wanderers opened out to stop the
attack. They gave Jock a clear field
and he scored while those in the
grandstand gave him his due applause.
Lange converted the try bringing
the score to 23.

On October 20, six years ago, Dr.
Wesbrook, the first president of the
University, died. By his charming
personality and his whole-hearted devotion to the interests of the University, he gained the love and respect
of all who knew him. It is generally
felt that the burden and anxiety of
the first years of organization hastened his death. Peeling that some fitting notice should be taken of the
anniversary of Dr. Wesbrook's death,
Arts '25 is planning to send its executive to the cemetery on the twentieth
to place a wreath on the grave. It
is hoped that the Senior Years of the
future will make this an annual event
an that in this way some recognition
of the debt to the first president will
be inaugurated.

Second Soccer
, Team Victorious
On Saturday the U. B. C. seconds
showed that they were not afraid to
shock their supporters by winning
two games in a row so they went out
and defeated the fast Central Park
eleven 1-0.
U. B. C. were hampered by the absence of Demidoff, who was at the
track meet, and were only able to
field ten men. Now the aborigines
called a portion of land, on one half
of which was a decided slope, with
numerous rock groins (?) a soccer
field. After the toss, Varsity attacked in this part of the field. Although
playing a four forward game, with
only Evans on the left wing, the forwards pressed consistently and gave
Dave Grey, the erstwhile Burnaby
pitching ace, some anxious moments.
Central Park, however, returned the
play, their centre forward and both
outside men playing well. Reid was
the mainstay of the defence in breaking up the attack. He was assisted
in particular at right half by How-
arth, a freshman. Play was fairly
evenly distributed on (both si.de.
U. B. C, if anything, having the edge.
About half way through the period the
Central Park fowards broke away and
shot dead on at Sutherland. The ball
bounced off his slight person to the
Opposing centre forward's foot, but
Sutherland rushed out, picked the
ball right off the centre's toe, and
cleared   brilliantly.
After half-time, , the U. B. C. did
not slacken off, but Gibbard, Newcombe, Cant and, Evans repeatedly
dribbled the ball near the Central
Park goal. It was in one of these
foraging expeditions that Evans, after
receiving a pass from Cant, crossed
the ball to Hee, who deflected it
slightly towards the goal. Due to
a misunderstanding between the back
and the goalie, both stood petrified
watching the ball roll into an open
goal. This was the only break in
the game for on all other occasions
Grey cleared well. The whistle for
time blew with no change in the score
although Central Park missed two
corners. U. B. C. line-up: Sutherland,
Warden and Hunter; Howarth, Reid
and Fanning; Gibbard, Newcombe,
Cant and Evans.

ships of £250 each to German students, who were annually selected by
the Kaiser, in conjunction with his

The following are the conditions under which B. C. candidates are eligible: They must be British subjects
with at least five years domicile in
Canada and unmarried. They must
have passed their 19th but not their
25th birthday, and must be at least
in the  sophomore years.
In his will Mr. Rhodes made it clear
that the students must have qualities
other than scholastic ability. The Selection Committee will therefore have
regard for the scholar's force of character, ambition, devotion to duty,
courage, sympathy, capacity for leadership and physical vigor—the love of
outdoor sport.
Musical Society To
,.    Have Busy Year
The Musical Society will hold a
hike to Cypress Park on Saturday,
October 25th. A ripping time and a
real hike is promised to everyone,
and it is hoped that all members, new
and old, will avail themselves of this
opportunity of becoming better acquainted.
Those who were at 'Varsity last
year will be glad to hear that another
musical treat is in store for them in
the form of a Duo-Art Recital. Last
year a recital of this kind was greatly
enjoyed by a large number of students
who eagerly welcomed the opportunity
of hearing, through this wonderful invention, some of the world's greatest
artists. The Duo-Art recital this year
will be held sometime early in November. Mr. Gould will again be in
chage, and will make some introductory remarks. The recital is open
to all and a hearty welcome extended
to the University as a whole.
It is still not too late to join and
any more new members will be gladly received, especially men. The orchestra is in need of a 'cellist. It is
hoped someone will soon come forward to fill this vacancy.
At a general meeting on Thursday
two new executive members were
Secretary—Mr. Fred Sparks, Arts
Women's Representative—Miss Evelyn Price, Arts '26.
A business meeting of the Mathematics Club was held in the Chemistry Lecture Room on Tuesday, Oct.
7th. A programme for the first term
was drawn up. The members decided
to hold fortnightly meetings, the first
of which takes place on Thursday,
Oct. 23rd, when Mr. P. Mellish will
speak en the subject of "Crypto*-
grams." All interested in Mathematics are invited  to attend.
All freshmen must attend the meeting of the first year classes Friday
noon when officers for the year will be
elected, is the edict of the Students'
Council following the meeting Monday
night when it was decided to get the
freshmen organized as soon as possible. The council members believe
that the lack of complete organization
is killing the college and class spirit
among the Frosh and hope that the
members will rally to the support, of
their class teams and the University
teams as soon as they have their Own
narshals and executive to guide them.
The freshmen will be asked to have
a class song and class yells ready for
the track meet and this is one reason
for rushing the organization work. The
sub-marshals will be chosen for each
of the ten groups following the election of offiecers tomorrow.
Any member of the freshman year
may be nominated for any position on
the c'ass executive. Nomination forms
should be signed by ten members of
the class and either given to May

Saturday at noon, three Varsity
trat;k records were beaten and also
■a^-^nteTcollegiate record was unofficially broken the day before by J. L.
Ramsell in the hammer throw! The
U.B.C. track men were holding their
eliminations for the EDMONTON
MEET in three running events, the
century and 220-yard dashes and the
half   mile.
Harry Warren, of rugby fame, uncorked a fine burst of speed in both
the 100 yards and the 220 and showed
the way to Thompson and McLuckie
who came second and third respectively. The diminutive rugby star eclipsed two Varsity records, the 100 yards
he negotiated in 10 3-5 seconds, and
the 220 in 23 1-5. The latter time is
an exceptionally good one and is three
fifths of a second faster than the event
was won at Saskatoon last year in
the Inter-collegiate. Warren got away
to a poor start in both events and it
is thought that he will easily knock
off a few more fifths when there are
not so many on the track.
Les Buckley surprised everybody
and himself most of all by excelling
his own half mile record of 2 min.
8 sees., by three-fifths of a second at
the Brockton track. There were a
large number of entries and it was
necessary to run the contestants off
in two rows and as Buckley started
in the back row it is estimated that
he lost two or three seconds in getting into po.'umm. The dark lin.se of
the race was Charley Mottley who almost nosed the winner after a very
fast finish. Mulherne set a hot pace
from the outset and it took Buckley
half a lap to get up close to the Arts
'27 star. Prom then on the Agriculture man trailed Mulherne to within the last 220 yards when they both
sprinted neck and neck along the
straight-away until the former forged
At the clubhouse, when it looked as
though Buckley had the race cinched,
Charley Motley ran up from behind
and came within an ace of winning
as the winner had killed his sprint in
passing Mulherne. If Motley had
shown better judgment he might have
won the race. As it was he ran a
mile and a half just for a work-out
before the race started and so tired
himself considerably. Motley-was the
surprise of the day and there is more
than a possibility that the '27 President will pull ojrt with the bunch on
Wednesday night for the prairie city.
J. L. Ramsell was going great guns
on Saturday; he threw the hammer
104 feet and the event was won last
year with 87 feet, the record being
100 feet and a few odd inches. Ramsell and Warren both played rugby
on Saturday and Buckley did his stuff .
with the soccer team, but fortunately
none of them were hurt.
Varsity/Juniors lost their second
consecutive start by the score of 2-1
to Dundas. The Methodists kicked
off and started a fast, even game.
Varsity had many golden opportunities, but. together with ill-luck and
missed chances, the score sheet was
blank at the interval. On the resumption, the Dundas right winger
beat his check and tallied, but Spillsbury nullified the benefit with a finely
taken individual effort, only to have
the same Dundas man repeat his
trick and give his team the verdict.
Stewart was the big man for Varsity,
and saved   many   sure ones
arsity firsts soccex men made up
for their artistic trimming last week
by shutting out the Longshoremen by
a 2-0 score, in a game replete with
thrills at the Cambie street grounds.
The students showed a complete reversal of form from the previous week
and fully deserved their victory.
The fast ground suited the bustling
type of game played by the collegians
and Varsity forwards assumed the offensive at the outset. Their efforts
were soon rewarded when Bobby Jackson rushed the ball into the net after
both Huestis and Butler had taken a
crack at it. Jackson got the ball on
the rebound and forced it into the net
>efore Robinson, the l.L.A. net minder,
could get back into position.
The Varsity halves worked hard and
dished up a much better brand of soccer than last week, but were wild in
"eir shooting. Rex Cameron played
a brilliant game at right wing for the
blue and gold. His crosses were a
constant source of danger to the
loser's defence who never seemed to
be out of difficulties. The l.L.A. halves
were the weakest part of their line-up,
and were largely responsible for their
After the first goal was scored, the
dockers tried to stage a come-back,
and sent in some pretty hard shots.
Varsity's custodian, King, handled
them all with ease, and played a splendid game throughout the entire hour
and a half. Half time came with the
students leading by one goal and still
After the oranges the dockers
seemed to have a new lease of life,
and gave the collegians' defence some
anxious moments. But as the second
period advanced the pace began to
tell on the waterfront men and Varsity
again became dangerous around the
enemy goal.
Toward the close the second stanza,
Crute, connected with the pigskin from
a corner off Rex Cameron's boot, and
the Varsity back sent in a teriffic shot
that beat Robinson to a standstill.
Varsity's second counter seemed to
take the enthusiasm out of the Longshoremen and from then on they were
seldom dangerous.
Huestis played centre forward in
the absence of Tommy Wilkinson, and
Tanny Butler and Les Buckley were
on the line-up at inside right and right
half respectively. Otherwise U.B.C.
played the same team as against Vancouver  City.
The winners' backs, Crute and
Baker, played a pretty fair game on
Saturday, although they are still a little erratic in their kicking. It is hard
to pick the stars in Saturday's encounter, but nobody who saw the game
will deny that both Phillips and Cameron scintillated.

No matter how valuable a man may
be on a football team he can always
be replaced. There are two outstanding examples of this in our first rugby
and soccer squads. The MacKechnie
team lost the one and only Geh Ternan and the soccer men managed to
beat the I. L. A. two nothing without
Heggie Mosher.
This does not mean that Mosher
and Ternan were not as good as they
were supposed to be but rather that
the pyschological effect of being without such a star makes every man on
the team work harder.

The Wearing of
r1       The Green
About two hundred years ago, an
old song tells us, certain rough persons   were  amusing   themselves   by:
"... hanging men and women
For the wearing o' the green."
It is by a strange anomaly that a
punishment, equally drastic, if scarcely
similar, is being meditated by students
of the upper years in our University
for men who are not wearing the green.
Refusal to wear a small green ribbon and by that act, play his part in
the finale of the initiation program,
certainly throws no credit upon the
individual back-slider. He not only
shows disrespect for the great majority of his class mates by an unwillingness to identify himself with them,
but he also reveals a deplorable lack
of pride in his university as a whole
by passing up his only opportunity for
designating to the outside world that
he is a U. B. C. student. In addition
he lays himself open to accusations of
stupidity, since his refusal hurts no
one but himself. Green is not such a
rare hue that its absence on a few
manly bosoms would occasion aesthetic discontent amongst upper classmen, while the freshman, without ribbon, and as yet barred from wearing
a pin, is nobody, invites no comrades,
and runs the risk of ejection from
Varsity corridors by hasty sophomores mistaking him for a stray high
school youth lost in our halls of learning.
This lack of unanimity in the wearing of ribbons also reflects discredit
upon the freshmen year as a whole.
Arts '28 do not need an eleborate class
organization to enforce outward recognition of itself amongst its members. Force of opinion, openly expressed, would have the desired effect
and, if pacific in nature, would always
be upheld by the upper years. Failure, therefore, to maintain a general
display of ribbons would argue for a
singular lack of spirit amongst the
majority of the freshmen  class.
This is an impression that Arts '28,
with their reputation in the making,
cannot afford to give. So far, it is
true, the Frosh have made commendable showings in the few general competitions which have taken place. The
Players' Club, the reportorial staff of
the Publications Board an dthe various athletic teams have each several
representatives from Arts '28, and the
recent tryouts for the Oxford debate
revealed the presence of promising
oratorical talent in that year, but the
prestige, or lack of prestige, of the
youngest year is yet to be established
and a lack of conformity to a simple

rule may yet bear considerably upon
The Frosh of '27 responded with
considerable uniformity to a ruling requesting them to wear green ties.
Surely '28 can respond even more completely to a custom much less undignified or conspicuous.
^Inter-Class Sports
Rugby and soccer should be cut out
of the inter-class sports. These two
competitions take longer to run off
than any of the others, and very often
drag right on into examination time.
Moreover every class as well as members in that year have different timetables and there is no one time except,
perhaps, Wednesday afternoons, when
everyone can be there without slipping
a lab or a lecture. Wednesday afternoons are taken up by our soccer and
rugby men who are training for outside competition. The holding of such
competitions as rugby and soccer disorganizes their practises as well as injuring their players for inter-city competition.
Another point is that the men's athletic executive are having the greatest
difficulty in procuring grounds, even
on Wednesday afternoon for their
practises. The rugby and soccer presidents state that no first team men will
take part in inter-class rugby or soccer. This spoils the competition as
there are some small classes that cannot very well get on without them and
make any kind of a showing. If one or
two turn out then there is a certain
amount of bad feeling between those
classes and those who cannot get any
flrst team men out.
The first team men are fully justified
in not playing. It is not fair to expect
them to devote extra time, besides the
two afternoons a week that they spend
playing inter-city games. These men
are already jeopodizing their scholastic standing and it is unfair to expect any more of them.
Other sports such as track, swimming, boxing, etc., inter-class competition are desirable and necessary and
much new material is derived. But
even here we find the same men turning out for everything. There should
be an attempt to equalize things instead of leaving the burden entirely on
a few out of each class.
Progress Reported
On Playing Fields
x Initiation at Gouzaga
The hazing of freshmen was ruled
out last night at a meeting of the Sophomore presidents and representatives of the Students' Council. The
old system of hazing has caused a
great deal of ill-feeling among the
freshmen and made them a liability
to the University for the first term
at least. This year, the freshmen need
have no fear of being dragged out of
their homes, in the middle of their
dreams to meet their fates.
The upper-class men have drawn
up a sane set of regulations which the
freshmen will be required to follow
in good spirit. All the rules for first
year men pertain to the campus only.
The freshmen of all faculties will
be obliged to wear a red and white
skullcap which will be generously supplied by the "sophs." In addition to
the caps all freshmen will be obliged
always to wear distinguishing ribbons
in their button holes. These ribbons
will be the color of the faculty to
which the freshmen belong.
The wearing of the freshman cap
and ribbon will start Monday morning
at 10.30, when the "Fresh-Soph" rush
takes place, and will last for two
weeks. During these two weeks, no
freshman while in the campus is to
walk on the sidewalk. Another ino-
vation this year is the calling upon
of freshmen to act as ushers at the
football games.
In addition to the above general
rules each faculty will formulate several rules of its own.    —Exchange.
Two; Fields Laid Out at
r/'^'-t'^    Point Grey
Thanks to the efforts of the committee appointed by last year's council to
carry on with the preparation of the
playing fields at Point Grey during the
summer, the students will find on their
arrival at the new campus next fall,
that enough ground has been prepared
for the needs of all track and field
The committee, consisting of Dal
Grauer, convenor, Prof. W. H. Powell,
Prof. P. A. Boving, and J. Oliver, have
had from three to eight men working
on the fields during the summer. Approximately 5,500 feet of drain pipe
nave been laid at a cost of $1,267. This
expenditure will leave nearly $6,000
>r the completion of the fields, which
still have to be graded and seeded before they wil be ready for use.
Two fields have been laid out on the
campus at Point Grey. One will be
temporary, 250 by 700 feet, to the
south of the main buildings, designed
for soccer, rugby, and grass hockey
practice. The other will be an exact
replica of the oval at Brockton point,
and will be encircled by a quarter-mile
cinder track. Situated near the corner
of Tenth Avenue and Boundary Road,
it is so placed that the afternoon sun
will shine transversely across the field
so as not to glare in the eyes of either
team. On the southwest side of this
oval, where the important matches
will be played, there is a slight rise,
admirably suited for a grandstand. It
is not thought, however, that the available funds will permit of anything
more than the construction of a temporary bleachers at present.
The committee has considered the
possibility of providing a number of
tennis courts, but it feels that it cannot undertake the construction of
these until further funds are provided
for that purpose.

Ex-King George defeated the Varsity senior fifteen in a poor showing
of the game when the former students
scored on a try by Gordon McLean.
The opening for the try was made by
Rowan following a long run from the
centre of the field to the line where
he ran into touch. He passed to McLean following the line out.
The ex-King George had a decided
advantage in the game and the Varsity
scrum had little chance to do much
against the onslaughts of the other
team. The Varsity threes received the
ball only a few times during the game
and the slippery pigskin was so elusive and hard to handle in the rain
that they had only two or three
dances to show their speed. The
Varsity squad was outplayed by the
better scrum and the former students
were unlucky in not adding to the
score. Although they improved as the
game neared the close the college fifteen failed to even up the score made
in the first half.

\y Drawing to an End
Miss Leeming Wins Two Finals.
The finals in the ladies' doubles and
mixed doubles were played last Friday. The men's doubles, the men's
singles, and the ladies' singles finals
will be concluded as soon as the
weather permits.
In the mixed doubles Miss Leeming,
runner-up for the Canadian championship, and Hincks defeated Miss J.
Strauss and Shields, 6-1, 9-7. As the
score shows Miss Leeming and Hincks
had no difficulty in the first set, for,
although each point was well contested by their opponents, they held the
edge, taking five straight games. Miss
Strauss and Shields rallied in the second set, forcing the victors to the limit, the set going to sixteen games before Miss Leeming and Hincks were
able to defeat them.
In the ladies' doubles the finalists
were not so well matched, Misses
Leeming and Bullock-Webster disposing of Misses J. and D. Strauss to the
tune of 6-2, 6-2.
Baker and Arnott will play Hincks
and Shields for the men's doubles
title. In the men's singles Shields
will again play Hincks for the right to
challenge Baker, the present holder
of the trophy. In the ladies' singles
Miss J. Strauss will meet Miss B. Webster.
The results in the semi-finals were:
Men's singles — Shields defeated
Stevenson, 6-2, 6-0. Hincks defeated
Shakespeare, 6-3, 6-1.
Men's doubles—Baker & Arnott defeated Calvert and Townsend, 6-2, 6-3.
Shields and Hincks defeated Painter
and Grauer, 6-46-4.
Mixed doubles—Miss Leeming and
Hincks defeated Miss Bullock-Webster
and Townsend, 6-2, 6-3. Miss J. Strauss
and Shields defeated Miss Greig and
Gillespie, 6-4, 6-1.
Ladies' doubles—Miss Leeming and
Bullock-Webster defeated Misses Meredith and Newcomb, 6-2, 6-2. Misses
J. and D. Strauss defeated Misses
Greig and Hemsworth, 7-5, 6-4.

U.B.C, October 13, 1924.
Editor The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir: —
Is courtesy entirely lacking in our
University? Can the so-called men
not wait to reach the outer air or
less-frequented corridors before producing "cigs" and, disinfecting the
place? As one instance: At ten
o'clock on three days a week to my
knowledge and probably on three
others as well, the stairway in the
Arts Building is crowded with students, the majority of whom are in
a hurry to reach their classes. Most
of the students are girls, but in the
crowd are several polecats from one
of the small rooms on the third floor
who stop at the head of the stairs
to "light up" and then move on—Oh!
so slowly!—perfuming the air with
their cabbages. Perhaps their nerves require this soother, but more
probably it is a desire to create an
impression on the women students.
Perhaps they think they look like
men, but -they really look like silly
little  asses.
Do they think it manly? Let me tell
you what men think- of it. While getting a lift around Point Grey in the
steam tug "Cleeve" the engineer offered me a cigarette which I refused.
He told me it was the wisest thing I
ever did, and that he wished he did
not smoke. Why? Because it would
make an old man of me quicker than
anything else. On another occasion,
a Fraser River fisherman (Robert
Reid of the boat "RR46") remarked
that he hadn't seen me smoking yet.
He, too, remarked that it was the
wisest thing I ever did, or rather did
not do. He could stand a pipe or
even beer, but to see young men
with those "damned 'cigs'" hanging
out of their mouths! Why, look at
them and you can see their fingers
trembling—their nerves all shot to
pieces. Only two cases, those; I
could give many more from men of
all kinds and of all walks of life. Men
do   not respect youthful  smokers.
What does Vancouver think of
U.B.C. when our young men are
seen with cigarettes hanging out of
their faces? these .manly young men,
the shieks who in the humble opinion of the majority have cultivated
this habit only to show off. I wonder if the girls really do respect these
cads and the stinkweeds.
Yours for a clean atmosphere.
The men's basketball teams held
their first practice on Tuesday, October 9th. There was a fine turnout of
last year's players and some new material. Coach Ross Bryson and Trainer Jack Buchanan were both out giving the prospects the once over. Both
were highly pleased with the material
on hand.
Prom present indications the first
team will probably be picked from the
following: Butler, H. Arkley, Buck
Buchanan, Dal Grauer, T. Wilkinson,
P. McKay, "Dad" Hartley and Henderson.

The Hockey Club held its first practice last Wednesday at Cecil Rhodes
School, among whom were a number
of  freshettes   turning   out  to   play.
According to the captain, Miss Kathleen Clark, there is some very good
material in the club, which promises
some very exciting games with the different high schools and the Normal.
The team is getting down to work at
once and with good turn-out to weekly practices, it is hoped to send the
players to Victoria at Christmas.
The club has room for a few more
members and anyone wishing to play
may do so by getting in touch with

The first annual meeting of the Women's Athletic Society was held in the
Auditorium on Thursday noon, at
which general information concerning
the different athletic activities was
given to the sportswomen of the U.B.C.
Miss Doris Shorney, president of the
society, who was in the chair, appealed
to the girls to lend their support to
sports whether they make any of the
teams or not, since those who do
qualify play not for themselves but
for the University. The presidents of
the various subsidiary clubs, basketball, swimming, gymnasium, badminton and hockey, spoke in turn about
their particular organizations, announcing the meeting places, fees,
coaches and other details. Miss Shorney spoke about the track and field,
asking every girl who has any athletic
ability to hand in her name and turn
out to practice. The track meet is being held on the 22nd and not on the
27th as stated.

what great strides have been made in

Council Publishes
/    Policy for Session
(a) Each class will be allowed one
class party during the session (the
Freshmen Class party to take place
in the Spring term.)
(b) The senior year of each faculty
will be allowed two parties—one each
(c) Subsidiary organizations will
hold no  general social  functions.
(d) No social functions in the nature of dances will be permitted in the
University except on Friday night unless under very exceptional circumstances.
(e) Four major social functions will
be permitted during the session. The
Frosh Reception, the Arts Dance, the
Agriculture Dance, and the Science
(a) Application to hold any student
activity involving the use of the University name or crest, or both, must
be made two weeks in advance of
the date of such a function. Council
wishes it particularly understood that
this applies to unscheduled athletic
events as well as to such activities
as hikes, skating parties, outside debates, etc.
(b) Student activities with the exception of scheduled athletic events,
will cease two weeks before the
Christmas Examinations and three
weeks previous to the spring term
(c) Functions of societies requiring admission charges will be permitted only when admission charge
is imperative and in keeping with
the importance of the function. This
applies to functions involving student
talent only.
(d) Final reports of student functions must be given to the Students'
Council within five days after such
functions. Council will use its discretion in permitting constituent and
subsidiary organizations to hold social functions.
It will be the policy of the Council
to treat as  breaches  of discipline:
1. Loitering and unnecessary noise
in the hallways.
2. Talking or disturbance in the
reading room or the breaking of other
library regulations. Members of the
fourth year and graduates are responsible for order in the reading room.
3. Failure to report to council immediately, damage done to any university property.
4. Incorrect reports of University
functions and  activities  to the press.
5. Gambling. Your attention is
drawn to the by-law passed by the
Students' Council, Jan. 20th, 1920-;
"That card playing, except at University functions, and gambling in any
form, such as dice throwing and coin-
tossing for money or any monetary
equivalent whatsoever, be prohibited
within the precincts of the University.
It will be the policy of Council to
enforce this measure rigidly and to
recommend for suspension or expulsion anyone who violates it.
We believe that the reputation and
influence of our University can best
be built up by maintaining a high
academic  standard.
Therefore it is the policy of the
Student's Council to encourage a careful and serious attention to study.
It is adverse to our policy that any
credits be given to students taking
part in college activities.
We believe that the establishment
of the credit system would seriously
lower our scholastic standing and
tend  to professionalize our activities.
We advise any student, therefore,
to forego his participation in undergraduate activities if it will imperil his
scholastic standing.

Men's  Swimming  Club
Plans have been made for what is
hoped will be the best year the Swimming Club has had yet. Chalmers
tank has been secured for Tuesday afternoon of each week from 3 to 5 p.m.
An additional period may be secured
later on each Friday.
It is desirable that every man who
is interested in swimming should attend the weekly swims and general
meetings, notices of which will appear
in the Ubyssey or posted in the halls.
The winter programme will be commenced in earnest next week with a
competent coach in attendance. Several major meets will be held with
the Vancouver Amateur Swimming
Club, St. Mark's Church and perhaps
one or two Victoria and Seattle Clubs.
In addition to these there will be interclass and interfaculty competitions
in swimming, diving and water polo.
To carry on these activities the support of every student interested in
swimming, and that should mean
every student in this University is
needed. If you can't swim, come and
learn. If you can swim, but need a
little coaching, come and get it. Those
who are already good swimmers or
divers are asked to come and help on
the first team.
The fee for the Swimming Club is
$2.00 for the season, 1924-1925. For
further particulars see Bruce Macdon-

Game of "Whodja Get" Gets
Guys Going
Arts '25 was the first class this
year to play "Whodja." For the benefit of the Freshmen and Freshettes
who will be playing the game within
the next few months, the Ubyssey has
decided to publish some of the rules
of  the  game.
All that is necessary as a preliminary is to have a majority of the class
vote for the draw system for the class
party. A day is set on which the draw
is made and some influential person
takes a co-ed's name from a hat. If
she is a dumbell the men gasp until
a man's name is drawn from a similar hat. Then there is a sigh of relief from all but one man. He tries
to smile. The dumbell blushes. Such
are the preliminaries for the game
of "Whodja."
Groups of people stand in the halls
chatting pleasantly until someone
comes up from behind and cries:
"Whodja Get." The players are not
allowed to run away. From the replies that are received to this question the others learn whether Or not
the draw was  cooked.
Any member of the Students' Council is said to have cooked the draw
when he or she is allotted to the
best looking member of the opposite
sex in the class. This may be accomplished by the said member of the
council threatening to have the class
party called off unless he or she gets
the person desired.
Members of the class executive are
also said to have cooked the draw
when they say that they have taken
their names out because they have
too much work to do on the night of
the party. This is called Prevaricating in the game of "Whodja."
Any person may cook the draw by
offering a reward of $25.00 to the person taking the   names  from the hat.
Insuring men and women against
failure to draw a "peach" is said to
be illegal, but any group of players may, at any time, decide to present a box of chocolates to any member of the opposite sex who has made
a good draw. The best looking woman
to draw a member of the Dubs' Club
is also eligible for a box of chocolates. The Dubs are the best men in
any class.
All members who are said to have
cooked the draw are winners in the
game of "Whodja." They have a reply
to the Question of "Whodja get?" that
is stereotyped. They must answer. "I
did pretty well." There are other
winners in the game but they are so
few that it is not necessary to consider  them.
Losers in the game are numerous.
If any man living in New Westminster draws a girl residing in West
Point Grey, he is judged a loser and
must try to make some arrangements
with a friend to put him up for the
night. If Miss Short draws Mr. Long,
she is a serious loser. If Miss Dan-
ceuse gets Mr. I. Sittemout she will
probably feign illness on the night
of the dance and will thus be a party
in the   cooking of the draw.
Professor F. G. C. Wood has unearthed the following text for the
days of the draws, and this should
help the students bear up under the
strain. "For what I am about to receive, may the Lord make me truly
thankful," is the happy thought he

Charley Mottley was the dark horse
of the Track Eliminations held this
week for the Inter-Collegiate team.
The Arts '27 President upset the dope
in great style when he nosed out Carl
Barton in the mile event in the record time of 4 min. 50 sec. The Varsity  record is  4  min. 53 3-5  sees.
Barton lias had a monoooiy on Ihe
mile for sometime at Varsity and
Mottley's showing was a complete
surprise to everyone. The Arts '27
star might easily have beaten Les-'
Buckley in the half mile had he shown
a little better judgment. As it was
he K&ve the Agriculture man one of
the greatest scares of his life by running him a very close second in last
Saturday's event.
Another potential star is Harold Mc-
Williams, who finished third to Barton and Mottley in the mile.
MacWilliams of Arts '27 with a little
training will make a name for himself.
Henry of Arts '28 beat the Varsity
broad jump by 4 inches when he
made 19 ft. 7 in. This does not compare very favorably with Inter-Collegiate records, nevertheless, Henry is
a very useful man as he can pole
vault, sprint, high jump and hurdle
very   nicely.
Harold Thompson won the 440 yards
at 55 sees, flat on a slow time. Ren
Brown ran him a close second. The
gameness of Brown is commendable
for he has turned out and run in every
elimination so far. THE   UBYSSEY

Varsity Track News
Those students at Varsity who are
of the opinion that the amount of
money spent on sending the U.B.C.
track squad West is out of all proportion to the benefit obtained from it,
should consider the following arguments in favor of sending the team:
In the first place Varsity track men
train harder by having the goal of
making the team before them. The
time made at Brockton Point in the
eliminations prove that fact. No ath-
lets will train for inter-class sports
as they will for inter-collegiate. Improvement in track dates back to the
year before last when the Western
Inter-collegiate was first made possible. Hence by inter-collegiate track
meets we develop better material; but
there is a more important benefit than
In an inter-collegiate track meet or
any other athletic event, the athlete
is running for his college, and only
then does he get the real Alma Mater
spirit, a spirit that he never could get
running against other athletes of his
college who are in different classes.
Ihter-collegiate competition, whether
it be debating or athletics, is a binding link between colleges and does
more for the promotion of student activities than twenty times the number
of half-hearted inter-class competitions. Therefore is it not worth
spending a little money on such
Speaking on "Some Aspects of Imperial Federation," before a large audience in the Physics lecture room on
Thursday night last, Mr. W. R. Dun-
lop inaugurated the seventh series of
"weekly lectures presented annually by
the Vancouver Institute.
Following the course of early Greek
history he pointed out that powerful
city states, united in one federation,
made Greece the leading nation of its
day. Similarly Rome rose to the summit of her power only after the scattered captive states were drawn together with bonds of union.
The Union of Scotland and England
was cited as a unique example of federation found expedient in order to
promote the welfare of the people.
The Great War taught the need of
Empire Federation. Men saw that the
call for a binding tie did not involve
Questions of sentiment alone. The
three schemes recently suggested by
advocates of federation were open to
much criticism, but the speaker was
convinced that the serious obstacles
encountered today could be overcome.
Problems offered by the vast Indian
Empire were numerous.
"What the world needs to-day," continued Mr. Dunlop, "is the presence of
a powerful empire which would serve
as a guarantor of world peace." The
British Empire alone is in a position to play, that role.
The speaker, in his treatment of
the subject brought a wealth of knowledge to bear on the problems presented. His keen, life-long interest in matters of Empire importance enabled
him to speak convincingly on the question which at every turn offered so
many thorny problems.
Tonight in the Physics Lecture room
at 8 n.m. Professor Angus will speak
on "Trade and Unemployment in
Great Britain." The Institute invites
students to attend this series of lectures as often as possible.
Sigma Delta Kappa
^ Has Peppy Meeting
The Sigma Delta Kappa got under
way for the season last Tuesday night,
and judging by the unprecedented enthusiasm, and the unusually large
turnout of forty, the government lives
to fight another day in more senses
than one. A Mock Parliament was the
programme for the evening, the Bookstore the main object of discussion,
and several parliamentarians, some
old faces, others new, were the shining lights of the first session.
"Prosser" Keenan's government survived the tempest, undeservedly, perhaps, for it had clearly lost the confidence of the house, and it was rather
the weakness of the opposition, combined with the disunifying obstructionist tactics of Hon. Schell, that enabled Messrs. Keenan, Kerr, Scott and
their colleagues to stagger through. It
was admittedly a minority government
that was the order of the evening, on
more than one occasion small "blocs"
saving the government's conventional
rubber neck.
Dean F. M. Clements in the capacity of critic, gave a brief review of
each of the evening's speakers, and
presented several exceedingly helpful
suggestions for future discussion. His
criticism was appreciated by the students, and his presence should be a
stimulus to the membership. The next
meeting is billed for Tuesday, October
28th, when the election of permanent
officers for the session will be held.
A proposal for establishing a Student
Employment Bureau is also on the
paper, and from time to time discussions of student activities will be the
order. Students should need no persuasion to roll along and get into the
The Students' Council met Monday
night, and centered their deliberations around their Budget. The treasurer urges a more liberal policy, but
he announces that it must be understood that these grants are final and
complete, and the various societies
will be required to regulate their expenditure accordingly. As a few
questions remained unsettled, complete details are being held over until
next   week.
The division of the monies is as
Men's   Athletics   $1,56X00
Women's  Athletics        182.10
Lit.   and   Scientific   Dept      735.00
Undergraduate Societies        315.00
Publications   4,050.00
The total, $7,084.10, as compared
with $6,359.00 of last year, shows an
increase of $725.00 and even taking
into account the increase in the number of students, this is a proportional
increase over last year's expenditure.
The Budget occupied all the evening
with the result that the questions of
the Students' Campaign was left over
until next week.
The Boxing Club held its first meeting on Thursday, October 9th. It was
decided to hold two turnouts a week
in St. George's Church if that building can be obtained.
This year will be a big year for the
"bruisers" from all indications. Two
tourraments will be held with city
clubs before the team goes to Seattle.
After Christmas the University of
Washington will come to Vancouver
for a return meet.
There is plenty of good material in
the club this year, besides the old reliables, Lowden, Mulherne and Greggor; there are several new men, all
of whom have fine records. With the
material on hand it looks as though
boxing is here to stay. It is the aim of
the club officials to obtain block letters for the champions.

Miss Dorothy Taylor, of Arts '25, has

lor the best one-act play written by an
undergraduate, and suitable for production at Christmas. Miss Taylor's
play, "The One Deserving," was adjudged the winner of the ten submitted, the decision being made by Prof.

Mr. F. H. Sward.

Prize Winner
(Continued from Page 1)
The popularity of the U. B. C. in
International debating circles is well
attested by the fact that there are
four challenges from Universities and
colleges across the line, awaiting the
consideration of the debates committee. Those from the Oregon Agricultural College and th Williamette University are for women debaters, while
those from the University of Idaho
and the College of Puget Sound, are
for men. It is very likely that all
four will be regretfully declined. A
challenge to the University of California will be sent out soon, because
of the failure of the Washington University to accept our offers for a
series  of debates.
