Varsity Defeats
Vancouver Rep.
7-3 Score in First Ganie of
McKechnie Cup Series
*" A very large crowd at Brockton
Point last Monday witnessed one of
the greatest games the Varsity Rugby
Team has ever played; a game, in
fact, comparable only to the Stanford
match ot last Christmas Day.
The slippery ground and ball did not
prevent an exceedingly fast pace being maintained throughout.
Varsity soon found themselves and
within five minutes of the first whistle
were well into Vancouver territory.
Our team was in particularly good
position when Palmer, the speedy College .right wing three-quarter, injured
his ankle so severely that he could
take no further part in the game. In
spite of this great loss Varsity continued to press. Ten minutes later
Vancouver rushed the ball into our
twenty-five. Clearing from this pressure, Domoney followed up his kick
and tackled Lou Hunter before the
latter had time to clear. From the
scrum which formed the ball went
out to Gee Ternan who dropped a very
pretty goal and raised the enthusiasm
of the Varsity supporters to the
highest pitch.
The team continued the attack after
the kick-off and it was only a short
time before Buchanan at the end of a
long run scored a try by the corner
flag A good attempt to convert this
was unsuccessful and Vancouver came
back hard but a few minutes later the
danger was relieved and for the rest
of the half play remained about the
centre of the field. When the whistle
blew the score was 7 - 0 in our favor.
Play was resumed after half-time at
the same fast pace and for a period
neither side gained much advantage.
Vancouver then started to press and
were given a dangerous-looking penalty position which however was not
turned to account. Continuing their
pressure they finally went over from
a line-out. The kick fell short of the
goal, making the score 7-3.
Following the kick-off a brilliant
dribbling run by the Varsity forwards
carried the ball over our opponents
goal-line but no score resulted, though
the Varsity continued the pressure.
Five minutes before time the "Rep"
team made another great effort but
our forwards were again equal to the
occasion and wheeling from a scrum
carried the ball back to midfield at
their feet just as the final whistle
When all did so well it would be
almost an impertinence to pick out
members of the team for individual
praise. The fact however, that Domoney played for three-quarters of the
game with a painfully injured rib, in
spite of which he repeatedly fell on
the ball and rendered invaluable as-

"Mr. President, lady patronesses
and—toughs!" were the opening remarks of Dr. Sedgewick, honorary
president of Arts '22 at the annual
class party held last Friday evening,
N'ovember 4, in the auditorium. "Ya-
hai-o!" yelled a dirty ragamuffin in
patched and frayed trousers and a
"porous" sweater. Thus the party
began! Hoots, yells, shrieks of
laughter and thunderous applause almost drowned the music of the extra-
good orchestra. Ancient dress suits
minus a coat-tail, patched in most
obvious places and fringed around the
ankles, waltzed with dainty gingham
dresses. Enticing kitchen maids in
short skirts and flowing tresses foxtrotted with hoboes whose wonderful
shocks of hair stood straight on end
(overcome by the honor, we presume)!
Supper in the cafeteria only increased
the uproar. Never did one of the
charming maidens sit out a dance,
while superfluous hoboes even danced
with each other.
To offset the usual blue and gold
decorations in one corner of Room Y
we found easy chairs, rugs on the
floor and, most marvellous of all, a
real mantel and fire-place, a touch of
originality for which the committee
deserves great praise.
Rev. A. E. Mitchell, of the Mount
Pleasant Presbyterian Church, will
give a special address to students on
Sunday, November 13. Every student
is invited.
Twenty-three delegates representing thirteen colleges of the Pacific
Coast, from British Columbia to California, assembled at the University
of Washington on Thursday, November 3, for a three-day conference of
the Pacific Inter-Collegiate Press Association. The "Ubyss'ey" was represented by Messrs. A. H. Imlah, A. L.
Stevenson, and H. M. Cassidy. A
meting of the associated Student Body
Presidents was taking place simultaneously, and two joint sessions were
held. The first of these, with
which the conferences opened, was a
banquet on Thursday evening.
The main business of the Press Conference was transacted on Friday. In
the morning the delegates, led by
F. W. Bartlett, Editor of the "Daily
Californian", described and discussed
the staff organizations of their various
papers. Several of the delegates
strongly voiced their dissent when Mr.
Bartlett declared that he had found
women students unsatisfactory in
journalistic work.
In the afternoon, following discussion of the Inter collegiate News Service, round table conferences were
held on Editorial and Business problems.
The second joint meeting on Saturday morning, was addressed by Dean
M. L. Spencer. University of Washington School of Journalism. He
stated that the greatest weakness
of the college paper was provincialism
produced by a tendency to ignore the

Student Parliament
The Student Parliament last evening
held one of the most stormy sessions;
in its history. The speaker on several
occasions was called upon to defend
his position and found it necessary to
hide behind the cloak of authority.
The clerk of the House suggested that;
the Speaker d(d hot know his busij
ness; thereupon the Speaker clbsedj
the discussion. Apart from these!
slight differences of opinion and some;
random quibbling, the meeting moved;
steadily ahead, with the business ofj
the House.
The new bills brought forward were;
three in number. The first, which.pro-i
vided for a Change of government! in'
case the executive was defeated, pass-f
ed unanimously through the three
readings. A bill to institute the Honoif
system as in vogue in several of the;
American universities called forth
considerable discussion. Mr. Bruce
Fraser, on this question, spent some
time in telling the Speaker the exact
extent of the duties of a Speaker.,
The "Treasurer's Bill," which dealt
with the control of the revenue fromj
the organizations under the Students'
Council, called forth more individual
opinion than anything that has yet
been brought in this session. Party*
was forgotten and each looked at the
bill from his individual point of view.
To those who have not paid a visit;
to the student Parliament we would;
like to say a word. It is the livest
organization in the university at the
present time. If you have a grouch to
air, if you have a bright idea which
you think would be of value to the
university at large, in the parliament
you will find a hearing and receive
the benefit of some other opinions
which 'may be as good as yours. In
the exchange both will benefit. You
do not have to be elected—You get a
seat for the asking.

Well, we had it , and the Freshettes
were there in full force. The distracted committee rushed hither and thither introducing people. As each person
came in she was presented with a
slip of paper bearing her name, and
half of an advertisement to match to
find her partner for tea. Miss Muriel
Moffatt, president of the women of
Arts '25 received the guests.
Suddenly a dead calm brooded over
the Auditorium ( broken at intervals
by the noisy and childish shrieks of
sundry sophs in the corridor.) One of
those unfortunate people, billed as a
member of a committee (and consequently missing all the fun) poked
her head around a corner and lo! before her ravished eyes stood Miss
Bollert making a speech.
Following the address, Miss Betty
Moore mounted the platform and with
the unrivelled skill of Paderewski delighted her audience with the "Prelude" by that famous Russian whose
name will not bear spelling. When
the applause had subsided, Miss Ethel
Paterson gave a dainty "Spring
Dance", and as an encore the "Scarf
Dance." She was accompanied by
Miss Florence McLeod. Then came
the rush. But you all know what a
wild scramble there is for "coffee" at
a "tea."
Presiding at the daintily arranged
tables were Miss M. L. Bollert, Mrs. L.
Robertson, Miss Greig, and Miss McKay. The long-suffering committee
served the refreshments. As they
journeyed from kitchen to Auditorium,
from Auditorium to kitchen and back
once more to the Auditorium, they
observed several plates of cake and
sandwiches, destined for their guests,
disappearing down the hall.
We, the Freshettes of 1925 wish to
thank those sturdy sophs who so
generously relieved us of this obviously bounden duty. It was amazing to
notice how those sophisticated people
so far demeaned themselves as to
come begging to Freshettes for something to eat. When their humble requests were refused with true Freshie
dignity, the starving creatures immediately and with bold countenances
helped themselves. Nor must we neglect to thank those Freshettes who in
all sportman-like a manner assisted
the lofty members of the second year.
Quite unknowingly we helped ourselves to the Women's Lit. cups. For
this unpardonable crime we beg forgiveness and offer the assurance that
the fell deed will not be repeated. We
are very grateful to the Women's
Literary Society for the courtesy with
which they treated this offence.
After tea, the remainder of the
afternoon was spent in dancing. Did
we all have a good time? We certainly did.
It is now a branch of the Student
Christain Movement. On Friday last
the Y met with Mr. Clark the travelling secretary of the S. C. M. and indorsed the action of the executive in
enlisting under its banner. This movement has roots in all Universities of
the world. It is increasing in work
and usefulness and promises to be one
of the  strongest International  forces.
Saturday noon the executive of both
the men and women met to consider
plans for the year.
"Why do you seem so fussed?"
"Oh, I always feel self-conscious in
an evening gown."
"Sort of all dressed up and no place
to go?"
"No.* * * Nothing on for the evening."
Eleven  A.   M.  to  noon,—that  dismal
When you are hungry a*nd are bored
to tears,
And try to keep awake with all your
And dreary, dragging minutes seem
like years.
Professors'    voices    sound    from    far
And make vexatious murmurs in
your head,
Though you have lost all gasp of
what they say;
They might as  well be  talking to
the dead.
And at your watch you take a furtive
Politely,   so  as  not  to  cause  them
And nibble at the edges of your book,
Tnat    awful   hungry  feeling   to   restrain.
But when you hear the twelve o'clock
bell  pealing.
Ain't it a grand and simply glorious
On Wednesday night the Agric. Discussion Club held its regular meeting
in the auditorium. The meeting took
the form of a debate between the
Sophs and the Freshmen, the former
upholding the negative and the latter
the affirmative of the question "Resolved that the tariff policy as advocated by Premier Meighen is more in
the interests of Canada than that of
the Hon. T. A. Crerar." Messrs. Wilkinson and Atkinson supported the
affirmative and Messrs. Barton and
Hope the negative. Prof. P. A. Boving, in giving the decision of the
judges to the affirmative, complimented the Freshmen on the able
manner in which they handled the
subject. Messrs. Wilcox and Russel
of the Sophs, acted as critics of the
Freshmen while Messrs. Townsend
and Lang of the Freshmen year in
turn criticized the Sophomores.
On Tuesday evening, November 1,
the Sigma Delta Kappa held a well
attended debate in the auditorium,
the subject being "Resolved that society would be bettered if the franchise was taken away from women."
Messrs. H. Goodwin, '24, E. J. Bloom-
field, Partial, and G. C. Martin upheld the affirmative and the Misses
H. McGill, '25, D. Fingland, '22 and
E. Griffith, '23, spoke on behalf of
the negative. The debate was a very
interesting one and the affirmative
put up an excellent argument in the
uphill fight against the mass of material available to and so ably put
forward by the negative. While the
judges were considering their decision
the meeting was thrown open for discussion, which was very lively, the
majority, however, siding with the negative. Among the speakers from
the audience were Messrs. Fleming,
Bruun, Thompson and Morgan. Mr.
H. Cantelon, '24, rendered the decision
on behalf of the judges, stating that
while the delivery of the affirmative
was superior the argument and material of the negative gave the advantage to the ladies.
'Arriet went to a medium to communicate with her late husband.
Wife—"Is that you 'Arry?"
Husband—"Yes 'Arriet."
Wife—"Are you 'appy 'Arry?"
Husband—"Yes 'Arriet."
Wife—"Are you much 'appier than
you were with me 'Arry?"
Husband—"Yes 'Arriet."
Wife—"Is 'eaven very nice 'Arry?"
Husband—"I am not in 'eaven

The Varsity met the Bank of Commerce team for the second time when
they played them to a 3-3 draw last
Saturday at Brockton Point.
After ten minutes of even play Cameron of the Bankers made a dangerous
run to within a few yards of the
Varsity line, the result being several
minutes of very hard play before the
tension was relieved. Turning the
tables, our team, for the remainder of
the half, pressed their opponents
heavily, on several occasions coming
very near to scoring. The half
closed 0-0.
Five minutes after play recommenced Meekison scored a good try
from a line-out. The kick failed and
play slackened somewhat, the ball being a good deal in the Varsity half.
Cameron eventually obtained a try
which was not converted. With only
a few minutes left Varsity came back
hard and were extremely unfortunate
in not scoring from a rush by Bickell
and Purdy. The very short space of
time remaining before the final
whistle was insufficient for the team
to change the result to a win but they
finished within a few yards of the
Commerce line after undoubtedly having had the better of the game.
Notes and Criticism
Certainly the poorest game the team
has played this season.
The back division was better, but
the forwards did not play together or
maintain the pressure in the second
In one of the best exhibitions of
fotball ever put up, Varsity downed
the Marpole boys by a score 2 - 0. The
blue and gold started off with a rush
and within three minutes of play,
Cant netted a goal. The game then
became fast and furious, the opposing
side working hard. The prettiest
play of the game followed
Marpole in their eagerness for a goal
had advanced quite a distance up the
field, and seeing an opening, one of
the half-backs passed the ball up to
Lundie. He dribbled the ball up the
field and shot from the penalty line.
The ball gracefully curved into the
net and Varsity made a score.
In spite of the brilliant play of the
first half there was considerable lack
of form' shown in the second and the
game ended without further score, 2-0,
The line-up was as follows, Mosher,
Say, Calder, Emerley, Buckley, Man-
son, Cameron, Cant, Lundie, Jackson,
A Skating Party for members of
Art's '24 was held on Thursday night,
November 10. Everyone who skated
at all was urged to ramble down to
the Arena and be sociable. The
arangements were in the hands of Mr.
Cantelon, and altogether the affair
offered an excellent opportunity for
that development of social inter-course
among members of the class which
is the big item on the programme of
this year's Executive.
Mr. Harold Offord, Arts '23, has been
elected vice-president of the Arts
Men's undergraduate Society in succession to Mr. Hunter Lewis, who resigned on assuming the presidency
of Arts '23.

sistance to the team in many tight
corners, is worthy of special mention.
The forwards controlled the play and
so prevented the serious loss of Palmer from our three-quarter line having the effect it might otherwise have
had. In this they were nobly supported by the backs, in particular the half
and two five eights.
Great stuff, Varsity! The Rugger
team is helping to found an athletic
tradition which may well be a present
pride and future inspiration.
The team: Back—Domoney; Three-
quarters—Palmer, McLane, Purdy Mc-,
Leod; Five-eighths, Buchanan, Ternan; Half— Cameron;, Forwards—
Gross, Gwyther, Greggor, Hodson,
Bickell, Carlisle, Gunning.
Last year, we had a most successful
season in basketball, only losing out
in the championship by a few points
scored in the closing minutes of the
game. Most of last year's stars are
at present engaged in Rugby, and
so are not available. At the same
time, that is no reason why the turnouts for the indoor-sport should be so
poor. Scarcely enough have turned
out to provide a practice game—let
alone the selection of the various
teams. If we are to have a show this
year we must have a much larger turnout and a much greater interest taken
in the game. We are under the impression that many former high-school
stars are with us this year. If so,
where are they? Come on fellows,
turn out and give us at least a chance
to   repeat   last   year's   performances.
A meeting of the Executive of the
Alumni Association was held last
week at the home of Muriel Caruthers,
when plans for the year were discussed. A General Meeting of the Association is to be held on Wednesday
night, November 16th, at the University, further notices to be made in

Today the wearing of red Flanders
poppies causes the minds of all to
turn reverently and lovingly toward
those former companions who will not
return. It is more necessary today
than it has ever been in the three
years since the armistice that we
should be reminded of them, for our
classes have now almost recovered
from the visible effects of the wartime decimation. The majority of the
present student generation (and it is
to them that these words are addressed) were below military age, and
one is no longer confronted constantly by the realization that the fine
flower of our young manhood is absent. But of the classes which have
previously passed through this university, many who would have been
the most brilliant graduates, had they
been spared, laid down their lives in
defence of the ideals which we are
all seeking to maintain. One cannot
help recalling the noble sentence in
which Rudyard Kipling gave utterance to the thought which these words
have been trying to express: "They
willingly left the unacknowledged
purpose of their lives, in order that
all life should not be wrenched from
its purpose, and- without fear they
turned from these gates of learning
to those of the grave."
Because we do not talk much about
them, of course it is not to be concluded that we no longer think of
them; rather that our emotion has become deeper and graver, freed from
war-time hysteria; and we hope that
we have incorporated something of
their high ideals into the essence of
our life and thought. Still we all
must wish that we may have some
opportunity in our daily conduct for
giving unspoken testimony of the
thankfulness and affection in which
we hold their memory.
Should we not then consider our
attitude toward their surviving representatives who are back with us ?
Every class contains still a leavening
of those who went willingly to the
ordeal, recking nothing of the future,
and now returning seek to reunite the
severed threads of their careers. They
bring among us experience won of
unspeakable soul-tests, a wider vision
of the meaning of life, a truer perspective of relative values beyond the
walls of class room and library. But
they bring also sometimes a certain
unrest, a dissatisfaction with the triviality of things that are so absorbing
to us: they cannot immediately and
entirely identify themselves with the
interests of the college microcosm.
There are a thousand subtle ways
in which we can make it easier for
them; by a moment's thoughtfulness
we can tide them over a spiritual
crisis, by an attitude of sympathy we
can help to hasten the bridging of
the chasm. And the result will redound to our own benefit, not only in
the psychic growth that comes from
consideration but in the opportunity
also to absorb and profit by their
riper wisdom in the solution of student problems.
The Musical Society is not a large
organization, but for its size it gives
a very great deal of pleasure to the
student body throughout the year.
There is the annual concert at Christmas held in the University, and there
is the more ambitious spring concert
for which the auditorium is not adequate. In addition we are to have
this year one or two student-recitals^
the first, next Wednesday, we are
quite sure will be enjoyed — it is
quite an informal affair and they are
serving refreshments. That is not all.
The excellence of these performances
in the past should make us anticipate
their renewal with more than the usual
satisfaction felt when we are given
an opportunity to enjoy ourselves.
The participants in next Wednesday's
recital have given time and much
practice unselfishly; it rests with us
to make the affair a success. We must
justify their efforts by being "a large
and appreciative" audience.
THE   P.   I.   P.   A.  CONFERENCE
At the recent conference in Seattle
the keenest criticism ot the modern
college paper was undoubtedly that of
pean Spencer, of the Washington
School of Journalism, when he stated
that it was too provincial, too narrow,
and too local in its viewpoint. The
college paper, when it functions as it
should, expresses the viewpoint of
the student body. Hence the same
criticism of student opinion may be
offered. And when this is true of the
big American Universities, old established as they are, fortified with traditions of many years standing, and in
constant contact with one another,
how much more is it true of a young
institution such as ours, ' almost
altogether isolated from other colleges.
The very fact that this is so is one
of the strongest reasons why press
representatives from the University of
British Columbia should take part in
such a conference. The purpose of
the P. I. P. A., aside from the exchange
of purely mechanical ideas of presentation, editing, business methods, etc.,
which the "Ubyssey" considers of
great value, and some of which will
be used here, is the fostering of intercommunication between the Coast Universities, by the exchange of papers,
bulletins, and feature stories of various
kinds, so that students of the different
colleges will better understand the
life and the ideas, the viewpoints and
the opinions of their fellows in other
places. It is hoped to extend the
association so that it may become continent-wide in its scope. When that
desirable end is achieved the intercollegiate news service will be greatly
improved, and the college papers will
be doing their best, as those of the
P. I. P. A. are at present, to remedy
the deplorable provincialism of the universities so justly criticised by Dean
According to Dean Spencer, Washington School of Journalism, the ideal
make-up of a college paper is 60 per
cent advertising, 40 per cent reading
matter. The "Ubyssey" reverses this,
giving about 42 per cent space to
advertising, 58 per cent reading matter.
The girl of today may like the last
rose of summer but she doesn't care a
darn for the last rows of the Orpheum!

The try-outs for the intercollegiate

year we need at least eight or ten
men for the various teams. There are
quite a few trying out for places, and
this number will be weeded down to a

At a meeting of Arts '24, held on
Wednesday, Nov. 2, a challenge from
"The Japanese Student Organization" to a debate was accepted.
This Society is composed of Japanese High School and University Students and has for its president
Hozumi Yonemura a well-known member of Arts '24. Several University
men who atended its last meeting
affirm that the standard of debate and
oratory was of a very high quality
and that the sophomores have a hard
task before them. Try-outs will therefore be held in a short time and a
team chosen to oppose the challengers. Although the time has not been
definitely decided the debate will be
some time before Christmas. Everybody should make it a point to be
present and in every way boost the

To Editor "Ubyssey": Sir-
Surely Nepos could not have chosen
a. more inopportune time for his appeal
for "military fitness". Is it not surpassing strange that at this solemn moment in world history, on the very eve
of the Disarmament Conference, an apparently clever student of this university
can think of nothing more appropriate
to advocate than our possession of "the
most efficient military establishment in
the province"?
Nepos seems to have forgotten that
the late President Wesbrook and other
professors used to exhort our elder
brothers to "make war on war" and
"to join in the holy crusade for permanent peace". Such sentiments as
Nepos expresses were denounced as
Prussian and un-British. Many of us
obeyed the call. Many of our comrades
died for the ideal of peace. Had we not
better honor their memory with some
itting memorial, before we prepare for
new wars. That would be a better
answer to our detractors. How many
of them ever fought for their country?
Moreover "all other Canadian universities of the first rank" have long
since   set   up   their   memorials.
The first of a series of three meetings, under the auspices of the Social
Science Cluh, was held in the auditorium on Tuesday last when the
Hon. H. H. Stevens, Minister of
Trades and Commerce, and Brig.
Gen. J. A. Clarke, candidate
for Burrard addressed the tudent
body on election issues. The foresight of the club is to be commended
in arranging this series of meetings
which will give the students an opportunity of reviewing, at first hand,
problems which confront the electors.
Mr. Norman Robertson occupied the
chair and after a brief speech, introduced the Hon. H. H. Stevens. Mr.
Stevens presented the all-important
problem of protection and its relation
to the development of Canadian industry. In outlining his argument he
dealt with the menace of foreign competition with all its dangers of cheap
labor and inflated currency. He
stated that what Canada needs today
is a policy of greater development of
natural resources, and that such a
policy is only possible under
an adequate system of protection.
Following this he gave a brief sketch
of the Economic development of Canadian   industry  under  the   system   of

Brig. Gen. J. A. Clark was introduced and briefly proceeded to outline
the platform of the party, stressing
particularly the disastrous effect on
Canada's future which would result
from the politics of either the Liberal
or Farmer parties. He drew a picture
of Canada's future prosperity under
the eminent leadership of the Right
Hon. Mr. Meighen, stating that an
analysis of the characters of the two
opposing leaders would be sufficient
to prove which was fitted to be the
Prime Minister of the Dominion.
Arts '20, although its members have
travelled widely, is aparently divided
into two divisions—those who are
teaching and those who are not. The
first division seems to have claimed
the majority, including Rena Grant,

Morris, in the city, and Violet WalsrI
in North Vancouver High School,
Patricia Smith in Victoria High
School, Helen Matheson and Laura
Swencisky in Chilliwack, and Aileen

last year by carrying off the Governor
General's Medal from MacDonald College. She is now Domestic Science
instructress in the city schools. Babe

but it is common knowledge that she
does not intend to devote her life to
this profession. Walter Couper has
a student assistantship at Berkeley,
Willson Coates is in his second term
at Oxford, and Hugh Keenleyside has
returned to Clark University, in pursuit of a Ph. D. Allon Peebles is connected with the Insurance business at
Waterloo, Ontario. Louie Stirk, after

The Literary Corner
The first of a series of vocational
lectures for women, under the auspices of the W. U. S., was given last
Thursday by Miss Ethel Johns. The
subject of the lecture, "Nursing as a
Vocation," is a topic of great interest
to us here for, however surprising it
may seem, U. B. C. is the first university, not only in Canada, but in the
British Empire, to offer a nursing degree, although there are several colleges in the States so doing.
Miss Johns outlined in detail, and
very attractively, the three years of
training work. She laid stress upon
the fact that her department is in
great need of nurses who are trained
to teach also, pointing out the opportunities in this field for the university
graduate nurse.
In closing, Miss Johns stated that
she would be delighted to meet at any
time girls who are interested in this
The next lecture of the series will
be given about the end of November.
LONDON, Nov. o— The Duke of
Devonshire, speaking as chancellor of
Leeds University, declared that the
Canadian Univrsities were built not
for today or tommorrow, but for 500
years hence, and this spirit was disclosing itself both externally and internally in the universities in Canada.
If a university was wanted in Canada, the money therefor was found
either by individuals or, as was the
case in most of the provinces, by the
provinces themselves, which instanced
a determination to provide for a
straight course from the national
school to the university.—News Despatch.
He is a pagan and worships a god
of green jade. He is quite sure it is
the true one; the ancestors of his
race recorded it thousands of years
ago. They were primitive, ignorant,
superstitious; he, cultured and scientific. But he believes his ancestors;
they were inspired. He is quite sure
of that.
In the cool jungle he was born. His
brown-skinned mother gave thanks to
thje false god of jade. But the child
grew like young, green shoots in their
season, and shouted and ran and
teased his more quiet sisters.
When he grew up the boy himself
prayed to the green jade of the jungle, in the clear, blue nights. But the
call of his love was not less sweet,
when the moon rose above the tall
palm trees. Her motions fascinated
him no less. The nearness of her
scented body no less intoxicated his
sense, till he was like to crush her
with his drunken limbs.
Together they laid wreaths of white,
unscented lilies upon the head of the
smiling Nescience, but their sons were
no less lusty, and their daughters no
less beautiful.
When the young plants they had
trampled down in their love-madness
had recovered and grown into high,
shady masses, they rested their worn
frames arid prayed to the green jade
god to gather them in his arms in the
sweet jungles of heaven. But Death
came in the darkness and took them
while they slept. He laid them away
in the fresh, black earth, doubled up
with their knees supporting their
chins. The green jade god smiled
ironically, untouched by the rains and
sun. Soon, in the next geological
cataclysm, the brown creature and his
god of green jade will be ground into
powder. With ice and stones they will
be rolled round and round.
And we, the elect, the chosen, think
of the flesh rotting, of the bones dissolving, under the tropical elements;
and we smile.
For he will never know the blessings
of our true God. He the just, the
merciful, whom our ancestors wrote
of thousands of years ago. They
were primitive; we, cultured. But we
believe in them; they were inspired.
We are quite sure of that.

RAISEL?  k   _,
The Women's Literary Society met
on Wednesday afternoon November
2 at 3 p.m.. when was held the first
tater-class debate between Arts '24 and
Arts '25. The first year supported the
affirmative, the second year the negative of the following resolutions:
"Resolved that it is desirable to rai3e
the age limit of the entrance to this
University from 16 to 18 years."
Miss Helen MacGill, Arts '25, the
leader of the affirmative, dealt with the
subject from the point of view of the
University work, emphasizing the
advantage to be gained from adding
two years to the public and high school
course and thus raising the standard
of work in the first years of the University training.
Miss Florence Johnson, Arts '24,
leader of the negative, pointed out
that the younger students often do the
best work, and that the passing of
the matriculation examination should
be sufficient to procure entrance to the
university   at   whatever   age.
Miss Margurite Carrico, second
speaker on the1 affirmative, discussed
the wider results of the raising of the
age limit, and its advantage to the
whole community.
Miss Frances MacMorris, speaking
for the negative, compared the age
limit with those of other Canadian
Universities. She argued that over
fifty per cent of the students in the
first year would be debarred from
attendance if the age limit were raised.
Finally, Miss Helen MacGill gave a
vigorous three-minute rebuttal, summarizing the arguments of the affirmative.
While the judges, Dr, MacDonald,
Dr. Boggs, and Miss Gregg were considering the verdict, a lively discussion
went forward in which many members
took part. As the main purpose of
debating is to encourage free expres
sion of opinion by the members of
the society rather than merely the
winning of a shield, it is a very encouraging sign at the beginning of
the year that so many girls contribute
to the discussion. This does not need
to take away the formal character of
these inter-class debates, and it is
hoped that this part of the programme
will soon prove as attractive as the
debate itself.
Dr. Boggs gave the decision of the
judges in favor of the affirmative,
qualifying the statement by a remark
as to the very even merits of the two
sides, which caused the judges to take
longer than usual to consider their
verdict. He warned the speakers
against the obvious use of notes, to
which two of them were inclined to
be addicted. Apart from: this the
delivery, especially of the affirmative
speakers, was clear and forcible,
though some of the arguments were
beside the point, and the material on
the whole was rather slender.
After the debate, the second year
entertained the Literary Society with
coffee and cakes. The sophomores are
to be congratulated on their arrangements and prompt serving, and also
on the fact that the refreshments were,
for once, entirely adequate to the
The next debate is to be an open informal one, on a subject to be announced later. The discussion will be free
and open, subject only to the usual
parliamentary rules, and the decision
will be by a standing vote of the
whole. The date of this meeting is
Novenjber 23 and the subject will be
one of immediate interest to the students of this University.
Friend—What's the matter?
Players' Club Executive—We can't
make up our minds to put on a play
that will be approved by the Faculty
or one that will hit the students.

campus this week when the Pacific
Inter-Collegiate Press Association held
its convention here. Many of the
press dispatches previously sent by
mail will now be sent through the air
each night. Operators on watch at
the Washington stations will "pound
on the brass" starting the messages
out through the night to Oregon.
From there the Oregon stations will
relay them on to California and Stanford.
The first message was sent in
honor of the Pacific Inter-Collegiate
Press Association convention here,
November 3, 4 and 5.
Editor's Note: ..We put a contribution box up in the Science Building
last Friday—behold the lone result.
Cheers, Science!
"There was a lady of Em-Bon Pong
Who hobbled along
In the highest skirt of the latest
And a pair of pumps so fearfully
That   she  walked   in  jumps—when
she walked at all.
The skirt was too short—she was
clad too thin
And  she  looked a  sight that  was
worse than sin
But     she     satisfied     womankind's
mightiest passion
Though she looked a fright, she was
in the fashion.
Now   I'm   balmy,   I   know,   as   the
balmiest bat
But  I'm  hanged  if  I  think  I'm  as
balmy as that! ! !"

Composed  by An  Observer
When the little lambs do gambol,
In the pastures by,
Do they ever think, I wonder,
Of the time so nigh,
When they will become, by thunder,
Contents of a pie?
When  the  Freshmen  frolic gaily,
Up and down the stairs,
Do they ever stop to ponder,
On the passing years,
For they too will soon be Seniors,
And will have grey hairs.
There is a distinct connection, and
a much more intimate connection than
at first seems possible, between the
literature of a period (in any country)
and its art. This means a connection
not only with the paintings of a time,
but also with the designs in architecture, and even in such an unlikely
thing as furniture. They are molded
after the same pattern because inspired with the same thought; they
are children of the same mother, the
spirit of their time.
Think for a moment and you will
see that this is so. There comes to
mind Gothic art and religious aspiration; Watteau's paintings, the furniture of Louis Quinze, and l'espirt
de la galanterie of eighteenth century France; Botticelli and Renaissance Italy; Jacobean furniture and
the Restoration.
Would there not, then, be a distinct advantage if, in connection with
literature, there were shown and discussed examples of the contemporary
paintings and furniture? Besides being decidedly enlightening, it would
do away, to some extent, with that too-
prevalent habit of studying subjects
in compartments, instead of in their
unavoidable human relationships.
