Unusual Display
Comes Here
Monday
Ian Eisenhardt to Direct
Group of 25 In
Gymnastics
A Gymnastic Display so unique
that in a week it attracted 35,000
Jubilee visitors to Stanley Park at
the end of August, and over 6,000
Vancouver Island residents more
recently, is to be presented in the
campus auditorium at noon this
coming Monday, according to word
received from Ian Eisenhardt, Director of Recreational and Physical Education for the Province.
Featuring over 25 chosen instructors and leaders from the Provincial Recreation Centres, the demonstration includes "Danish" Fundamental Gymnastics, mat and
springboard tumbling, specatcular
high box vaulting, gymnastic pyramid building, musical fencing
drill, graceful golden statues, colorful dances, and comedy stunts.
ll is designed, primarily, to show
just what fascinating activities are
tn tight in a supervised gymnasium,
to to boost the Interest ln Physical
Kducatlon on the U. B. C. campus,
yet It does anything but lack in
entertainment.
Chief Instructor Jerry Mathlsen,
will be in charge of the display,
while Paul Kozoolin, former Varsity soccer captain and four-time
Big Block wlner, will do the announcing. Student admission tickets are only 5 cents.

TOTEM STAFF NEEDED
An enlarged Totem, an improved Totem, a Totem bulging
with generous sized campus photos, a pictorial jewel reflecting
every conceivable campus activity, mood and whimsy, is the
glowing plan of the Totem staff
this year. Examination of yearbooks from other colleges in
Canada and to the South has
convinced the editors that U. B.
C. demands a more truly representative and impressive Totem.
Increased organization and
subdivision of departments in
Totem compilation leaves a large
staff to be selected. Since the
work is interesting and serves as
insight to U. B. C. activities, and
since a larger staff will divide
individual assignments, the editors this year invite students
who have had experience in the
hazy past with High School
yearbooks, or who are interested
in the Totem, to join the staff.
Application is made at the Publications office in the afternoon.

Dr. G. M. Shrum, whose
radium director is describ-
below.
Invention of Dr.
Shrum Used In
Calgary
Radium Needle Is
Recovered By
Detector
A fifty-milligram needle of
radium, value of $5,000, lay
half a block from a Calgary
hospital 15 feet below the
ground, in a sewer. Yet this
elusive trifle was brought once
again to light and circulation,
and through the inventive talent of Dr. Gordon Shrum of
the Physics department in the
University of British Columbia. Working with Mr. Ronald
Smith of U. B. C, Dr. Shrum
had perfected a low voltage
Geiger-Muller counter, or radium dectector, which became
the instrument of salvage for
Calgary's radium needle.
OPERATION SIMPLE
The operation of the detector,
explained in the most untechnlcal
terms, is as follows: Gamma rays
emanating from the radium penetrate earth', pipe, cement and metal.
They enter a tube which comprises
the Integral part of a mop-like arrangement which Is passed over the
ground where radium is suspected
to be,
The current caused by the penetration of the gamam ray registers
throug the amplifying device and
indicates the relative distance from
the radium sample. Physics 2 students and many others are familiar
with the operation of the detector,
Dr. Shrum having often demonstrated it ln labs.
Asked by a mentally foggy reporter if the detector was capable
of indicating the position of other
metals than radium, the Doctor answered: "If it could discover gold,
I just wouldn't be here."
Two Promotions
Announced
Dr. H. G. Letson Resigns;
Drs. Dallas and Warren
Promoted By Board
Several staff changes were announced by Dr. L. S. Klinck, following the Board of Governors meeting Monday evening. Resignation
of Dr. H. F. G. Letson, associate
professor of Mechanical and Electrical, was accepted with regret.
Dr. Letson has been on leave of
absence for the past year.
Two promotions were authorized
by the board. Dr. Dorothy Dallas
was raised from Instructor to Assistant Professor of French. Dr.
Harry Warren, lecturer in Miner-
olagy and Petrography, was promoted to Assistant Professor.
Dr. G. G. Sedgewick has consented to give the address at the
annual Fall Congregation, Dr.
Klinck stated.

The Old
Story
Successful Yzar
For Forum
Indicated
First Meeting Will
Be Held Tuesday
With a greatly increased
interest in public speaking
evident this year, and assured
of the support of a number of
experienced debaters, the executive of the Parliamentary
Forum is looking forward to
one of the most successful
seasons in the history of the
society.
OXFORD UNION 8TYLE
The procedure of the Parliament-
ary Forum is similar to that of the
famous Oxford Union. After the
two teams selected by the execu
tlves have led the debate, before a
decision is made, the houes is
thrown open to speakers from the
floor, who are usually giverf seven
minutes each. They may select
either side of the question, but of
course must strictly adhere to Par
liamentary procedure. Those who
show sufficient promise are given
the privilege of leading some future debate in the Forum.
Next Tuesday night the Forum
will hold its first meeting. The controversial resolution, "Resolved tha't
in the Interests of Spain, the Fascists are justified in attempting to
overthrow the existing government"
is expected to result in a first class
debate. Tom Marshall, who has
appeared ln Forum debates last
year, and who spoke against the
University of Manitoba in the first
radio debate last year, will take the
affirmative side.
Al Carlsen, who led a debate on
Social Credit last year, and who
debated against the University of
Oregon last spring, will oppose
him. Professor J. Friend Day has
kindly consented to act as chairman of the Forum, and will lend
once more to the debaters the benefit of his valuable advice and assistance.
Ludlow Beamish, acting president, has announced that some time
of the meeting will be taken to
confirm the slate of officers for this
year. The meeting will be held at
7.30 p.m. In Arts 100. All newcomers are especially welcomed.
Increasing In intensity every day, the "Battle of the
Quad" entered its fifth day Thursday noon.
Since Monday, when a frosh-soph flght in the Auditorium started 1936 inter-class hostilities, every noon hour
has seen furious, but for the most part harmless fighting.
Tuesday, the frosh becoming slightly Irked at the indignities imposed upon them
by sophs who set up a shoe
shine stand, attacked the
stand and completely wrecked
ti.
An added attraction on
Tuesday's show was the appearance of a fire hose in .the
Arts Men's. Common Room
window. Those unfortunate
enough to be in the quad at
the time stated that the hose
was no Joke.
This was substantiated by
members of the Discipline
Committee who began to
show an interest in the "playful bickering" of the frosh
and sophs.
Alan Morley, always obeying the
call of duty, Interfered Wednesday
when the frosh tried to enter the
Arts Building and invade the second year meeting. The crowd, not
at all caring about this, congregated at the west end of the quad to
discuss plans.
It was then that the highlight of
the whole war was enacted.
A frosh-soph fight in days
of yore. It hapepned then
and will probably happen in
days to come.
OUTDOOR CLUB
There will be a work hike for all
prospective members of the Outdoor Club on Sunday, Oct. 4. Boys
will meet at the 7.40 ferry and girls
at the 8.20. Please bring your
lunch.
Morley Makes It
Again; Elected
Arts Prexy
Forty Arts Men Turn
To Support
Campus Cop
Alan Morley, super campus
cop and guardian of the
peace, was re-elected President of the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society by an overwhelming majority at the
meeting held in Arts 100 on
Thursday.
ONLY 40 THERE
Morley's fame as a disciplinarian
and his notoriety as a yellow Journalist precluded any possibility of
competition.
The undergraduates, 40 strong,
showed their supreme confidence
In his well-practiced ability to
shepherd them through the wilderness to fresh pastures by
electing him to his high office by
acclamation.
Paddy Colthurst followed to stand
at Morley's right hand as secretary-
treasurer. The remaining positions
on the A. M. U. S. are filled by the
class representatives.
President Morley gave notice that
the Arts Ball would be held this
year at the Commodore Cabaret on
November 10th. Then he went
forth and was greeted by the loyal
and enthusiastic multitude.
A Rumanian war veteran, whose
hands have been paralyzed for a
number of years, is exhibiting in
Vienna pictures he has painted
with his right foot. He is up against
unfair competition; it is apparent
many modern artists are using both
feet. —Portland Oregonian.
LOST
Brown Waterman's eversharp
Wednesday noon, somewhere
around the quad. Please return to
Mr.  Home's office.
Prom out of the window of a
second storey room came the
gushing flow of the reliable Are
hose. Scores of those below
were soaked to the skin as the
camermen from the Ubyssey and
Sun snapped the scene from the
same room that the hose was In I
Wednesday's performance was
concluded with a few spurts of
egg-tossing, but it was definitely
shown that this art was not quite
developed. The morrow would show
different.
ORGANIZED LINE-UP
The line-up on Thursday was
more interesting. At the drinking
fountain a couple of hundred boys
whose actual class is not known,
stood facing a similar group of
frosh who were on the parking lot.
No Man's Land was the space between the Administration Building
and the Auditorium.
After much hurling of abuse,
the two lines began to advanoe.
Then, aa the froah reached the
half-way mark, Alan Morley
stepped out In the path of the oncoming lines.
It showed courage, but it started something.
For at that moment, from the
ranks of the defenders came a barrage of eggs. If it had been planned for months it wouldn't have
been more effective.
Among others, Morley got the
full force of an egg, which, by the
way, was a source of equal delight
to frosh and soph. They both hate
him.
Another shoeshine stand was
wrecked Thursday, which action
was followed by a free-for-all in
the quad. Through it all Gould and
Morley stood in impassive silence
and noted names. Whether anybody will be called before the Discipline Committee is not known.
Certainly enough names have been
entered in Alan's little black book.
Members of the Discipline
Committee are, in addition to the
aforesaid Morley, John Witbeck,
Phil Emory, vice-presidents of the
junior and sophomore classes,
and Audrey  Horwood.
Another battle is expected by
many for today noon. Authorities
are not unprepared, as Alan and
Jay have promised a riot squad to
quell troubles.
Youth is apt to labor under the
misapprehension that sex was discovered somewhere in the Wilson
administration, and that no one
over thirty  really  understands  it.

NATIONAL FILM SOCIETY
One of the functions of a University is generally acknowledged to be that of broadening Individual viewpoints.
To demonstrate that there are many types of art, many
different ideas, many different governments, many types of
humor and many different races in the world today.
Universities are often hampered in this aim by lack of
equipment. There is, however, in Vancouver today a society
that in part supplies this lack. The National Film Society
by exhibiting films produced In many different lands under
many different techniques has a definitely widening influence
on all who attend its performances.
We are proud that the president of this Society is a
member of our own faculty and hope that ln future these
National film performances will become even more popular
with University students than they are today.
INITIATION
Again this year the campus has had to suffer from the
outbreaks of fighting between the freshmen and the sophomores. These fights—they could better be termed riots—
have come to be daily occurrences.
Surely such troubles are a positive indication that some
organized initiation programme is badly needed. There must
be some means by which the new students can have their
fun without appearing childish. A safety valve must be
provided.
It is without doubt true that suppression of such affairs
as the annual bonfire have had their unpleasant reactions.
Nevertheless the fact that a little roughouse is needed must
be faced.
If any committee or group can formulate a program that
includes good fun and safety they will have solved the
trouble.   Such a program must be prepared for 1937.
TOTEM PROJECTS
Well, we are a big University now. We are 21 years
old and quite grown up. To celebrate this fact there have
already been published two extra large editions of the Ubyssey, one last spring and one early this term. We now think
that it is time to put out a super-super Totem as a memento
of our 21 years.
Plans have already been drawn up to include individual
pictures of every member of the student body, more pictures
of campus views, pictorial news pages, write-ups on fraternities and sororities in addition to the regular club stories,
pictures taken at dances, games, etc. In fact, to make the
Totem a complete record of the University year.
The Totem staff alone cannot accomplish such a task.
They are willing to bear the brunt of the extra work that
such a book would mean. Council, if you students are favorable, would give their support to the project. So what we
need is your favor.
The Publications board would greatly appreciate letters
answering the following questions: Would you like a bigger
and better Totem this year or are you completely satisfied
with the old one? Do you think that it would be a good
idea to include pictures of every student on the campus in
the book? If this was done would you buy a copy of the
book? Are you willing to co-operate with the Totem staff
by turning in your timetables promptly and appearing for
your appointments? Have you any ideas as to how to improve the selling of the Totem?
We are willing to do our best to please you if you will
only let us know what you desire.

PERSONAL JEWELLERS TO EVERY MEMBER OF THE FAMILY
By THE CAMPUS CRAB
Heaven will protect the
poor working girl, we are Informed on the unimpeachable
evidence of one of those imperishable ballads of the '80's.
It would be comforting indeed
if only it could be relied upon
to do the same for harassed
members of the Discipline
Committee who are driven by
stern duty to thrust themselves between warring factions of undergraduates amid
barrages of musty eggs and
streams of water.
These sad reflections are
prompted by the recent experience of the Campus Crab
in fulfilling the manifest but
somewhat ridiculous destiny
of official pacifier during the
initiation period.
It is an occupation conducive neither of the serene calm
nor the contemplative attitude so necessary to one
whose other functions include
judicial review of the shortcomings of authority and occasional castigatlon of its absurdities.
SWEET OIL
Therefore, you need not be
surprised if there is more
sweet oil than vinegar in this
column until after the shouting and the tumult dies (we
hope) on October 8. Shaking
silly freshmen and sophomores by the collar until they
temporarily regain some semblance of human reasonableness exhausts the Crab's supply of venom. (According to
the canons of zoology this infers a peculiar breed of crab
indeed, but let that pass.)
Since exercise has driven
the Crab into a mood where
he must commend something,
the handiest thing appears to
be the first showing of pictures by the National Film Society in the Little Theatre
Wednesday night.
AND SODOMITES
The first four films imported by the Society are a revelation to most of us that saw
them. There can be something more than a Gene Strat-
ton Porter theme or a Philo
Vance thrill to a moving picture, a fact that many of us
have suspected, but have
never before seen demonstrated.
There is no doubt that "Lot
in Sodom' aroused the most
interest among such students
as were present, though the
Crab is willing to bet his left
great claw that 90 per cent
of them would need to resort
to the "not for general circulation" shelves of the library
psychology section before
they could come close to a
full comprehension of it.
At least, however, a good
many of them will have to become aware for the first time
that an intellectual consideration of practices even yet
shunned in general conversation by a majority of modem
people is not incompatible
with the moral standards demanded of university students.
Or even Faculty members,
they may have noticed.
AND THOSE HANDS
An amusing sidelight on
that film was the universal
approval of the shot of the
two hands with water running over them, as one of the
outstanding artistic achievements of the evening. Yet
how many students that saw
them realized their significance in the sequence of the
composition?
Much the greatest triumph
of the evening, however, was
the underground scenes in
"Kameradschaft." To the
Crab, who has spent a considerable portion of his long and
not altogether distinguished
career twisting the crank of a

more than one of his fellow
miners pass out in these mishaps Inseparable from the life

were almost unbearable.
NOT GODS, NOT DEVILS
How true it was — how
true!
One must disregard the obviously home-town patriotism
of the surface plot, but those
men down below!
The dear, damn, dumb, heroic, scared stiffs! There is
no such thing, fond though
we are of advertising it, as
the "dignity of labor." The
true dignity of these men
comes out only when they
forget they are working men,
and become human beings,
helping their mates to dodge
the death that hangs over
them all, or pitting themselves
against inevitable extinction.
Why has no Hollywood director ever been able to produce such unselfconscious heroes? For every one of them
was scared green, and you
knew it at once — but none
stopped fighting because of
that.
The Crab, thank God, has
never had to be a hero, but
he has heard that rending
creak of yielding timber and
the thudding rattle of falling
rock, and has scuttled away
down the drift with his heart
playing tag with his tonsils.
You need to have heard
that before you can appreciate what Pabst has done in
"Kameradschaft."
But once you have heard it,
it Is real—too damned real!

Dear Sir:
Someone hast told me that the tails on a tail coat worn at a formal
dinner, are not of the same length aa those of a tall coat worn to a
dance.   Is this correct?
Does one .sit on the tails of a tall coat or are they removed with
the  hands?
What type of outer coat may he worn with the formal dress?
The talla of a tall ooat are unobtrusively spread apart when one
•Its down. This Is not a matter of correct dress, but makes a coat
wrinkle when one sits on the tails. However, one should not make too
much of a business of spreading them before sitting down.
For evening wear a dark blue Guard coat may be worn, or an
Oxford Orey coat In a single-breasted, fly-front model.

Wings Over Thc
Rugby Field
■y  P.  L.  1ATTRUM
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, Ed-
monton, Sept. 28. (WIPU) — Two
aeroplanes belonging to the Edmonton Aero Club zooming over the
rugby field gave an exhibition of
hedge-hopping and low flying before
the packed grandstand prior to the
opening rugby game between Varsity Polar Bears and Edmonton HI-
Grads on Saturday afternoon.
This practice was Inaugurated
two years ago when North Sawle,
a member of the Aero Club, was
a student of the University, and has
now assumed the proportions of a
university tradition, Aero club officials have declared themselves
only too pleased to help the university ln this matter, and said they
were willing to give exhibitions of
flying with any number of machines
before all the games played at the
Varsity grid if the officials so desired. Over town firms have signified their willingness to donate
prizes and the feature may be
made into an interesting competition, with prizes for the most accurate drop of a ball from each
plane, as well as for the catching
of the ball by players on the field.
Items of Interest
In order that the activities of the
student body of the University may
be effectively carried on, the Alma
Mater Society has been organized,
with a governing executive called
the Students' Council. The , duty
of the Students' Council Is to control all activities of the societies
subsidiary to the Alma Mater Society. The Council consists of nine
members, chosen from the Junior
and Senior Years, John Groves
Gould being President for Session
1936-37.
And lastly, there is the Publications Board, best known from the
Handbook, The Totem and The
Ubyssey, official student publication
of the University. Miss Zoe-Brown
Clayton ia this year's editor-in-
chief.
THE FRESHMAN QUESTION
IN OTHER UNIVERSITIES
U. B. C. frosh and sophs,
within the quiet confines of a
disciplined campus seem to
have lost the stoical traditions of old.
To get an idea of what initiation and the enforcing of
tradition means one has to go
to the University of Nevada
at Reno. In common with the
home-town the students of
this university believe in the
solution of problems by swift
and uncompromising action.
Offending lowerclassmen get
a taste of the "Black Maria",
a huge leather paddle wielded
by upperclassmen.
This retribution was earned by
falling to observe the tradition that
upperclassmen were to be exclusive
wearers of "cords" and the punishment was carried out behind a barn
or somewhere with the published
explanation that such punishment
ought to encourage the following of
tradition, eventually making unnecessary such action. Which Is
pretty smooth logic.
On the other side of the fence
is Manitoba where the student is
welcomed by various organizations
with much glee through the med-
dlum of the student paper with the
emphasis of peaceful co-operation
by way of the glad hand and explanation of things all and sundry.
A feature of the first issue of the
Manitoban Is a series of essays on
"how to read," "writing examinations," "why write essays," etc.,
written by members of the Faculty.
A hale fellow, well met attitude Is
scattered forth with much abandon by clubs telling of the opportunities which they offer. All In
all, great Christian spirit and all
that sort of thing.
At U. C. L. A., California university, frosh seem to spend their
first hours at varsity running
around after their student advisors,
clutching vainly at the threads
which go to make up the Academic
curriculum and student life. The
condition of such advisors after interviewing all day is a cross between a drunk arriving home In
the wee small hours of the morning and the city editor when two
big stories break at once half an
hour before deadline.
Thrown back in our laps by the
Manitoban, U. of Man. student publication, comes the Ubyssey's sweet
little jingle of last year:
She doesn't paint, she doesn't rouge,
She   doesn't   smoke,   she   doesn't
booze,
She doesn't kiss, she doesn't pet,
She's 68 and single yet!
A TYPICAL FRESHMAN
From an official McGill report
tor the last year, it is interesting
and amusing to draw some conclusion about undergraduates and particularly the Individual who will
comprise the typical university Junior and senior of tomorrow, the
Freshman ln Arts and Science.
Consider that specimen who is today a sophomore. He was—and the
Freshman today is just about the
same, one surmises—18.3 years old,
and weighed 140.7 pounds. His
height was exactly 6 feet, 9 Inches.
And his vital capacity was 264. His
health, five chances out of seven,
would be classed as "A". There
were 223 of him in first year. This
immature homo sapiens was shorter, lighter, but probably brainier
than the "average" Hollywood hero,
who, we believe, romantic type,
should be 5 feet 11, and ape type,
6 feet 1. What he lacked ln aver-
ageness he made up for in work
and examinations. While not full-
grown, he is only 7 pounds lighter
than his 22 year old brother in first
year Medicine, and actually 2 inches taller!
The only disillusioning thing
about him is that there is no such
Individual; there is no such thing
as a "typical' 'freshman.
—Manitoban.
Second Cue  Of
U.B.C. Chivalry
Still further proof that the age
of chivalry is slowly returning to
the campus has just been brought
to light.
Recently, it will be remembered,
the sad case was reported of a
freshman offering his seat to one
of the opposite sex.
That this was not a mere whim,
but signs of an insidious disease is
substantiated by the following:
A woman student of this university—not a freshette — was
rounding the corner at Tenth and
Alma, to catch a waiting street-
car. To her left on the sidewalk, a
Flaming Youth was speeding along
—on his tricycle. Suddenly, without signalling her intention, the
careless student sharply turned the
corner.
The Youth set his jaw; grim determination flashed in his narrowed
eyes. This was one of those blan-
kety jay-walkers who would be
taught a lesson. With skilfull manoeuvring he bumped the Student,
barked her ankle and squashed her
toes, then sped on.
Mildly surprised, the Student
looked down at this cause of annoyance, then with sugary syco-
phany she lilted sweetly:
"I'm awfully sorix sonny."
Council, it was reported unofficially, demands that such incidents
of chivalry and courtesy cease immediately, on grounds that they
are contrary to all tradition and
endanger a reputation gained by
former student bodies.
Science Elections
As yet only two Science Classes
have held their elections. They
are Science '39 and '37. The following were elected to office in 3rd
year: President, Spud Davis; Vice-
president, H. W. B. P. Leckle-Bw-
ing; Secretary-treasurer, Bud Killam; Men's Athletic Rep., Dan Burnett.
In the graduating year: Hon.
Pres., Walter W. Gage; President,
BUI Dayton; Vice-president, Bob
Hodge; Secretary - treasurer, Dan
Thompson; M. A. R., Les. Dillwolfe.
Musician's Book
Is Inspiration
For Success
"The books which help you most
are those which make you think
the most."
So wrote Theodore Parker and
this on the fly-leaf of a booklet
Just published entitled, "Instant A
B C's for Success" is a key to what
is unquestionably a most inspiring
message to those of us who are
seeking a stimulus to help us ln our
efforts toward successful achievement. And who of us is there who
Is not seeking such Inspiration?
From among the "B's" we quote
one of the practical messages of
Inspiration: "BEWILDERED!
Shucks! Your solution Isn't far
away. SEEK IT. BE PERSUADED!"
Written in this refreshing manner by Kenneth Ross, who is a
member of the Incorporated Society of Musicians in London, England, it is the author's earnest
prayer that the message contained
in the pages of his book will successfully inspire and assist in accomplishing the realization of your
fondest hopes. They are the fruits
gleaned from experiences in the life
of the author thus far, and are the
result of practical experience. —

No make up for freshettes so the
initiation committee has ruled. Well,
that just means that your hair must
be extra special nice, Freshettes. And
have you a break! RUSSIAN DUCHESS
BEAUTY salon at 768 Granville Street
is giving away a free Pme-A-Rol shampoo with every finger wave and marcel from October 1 to October 15.
Pine-A-Rol is a special treatment
shampoo which is non-darkening and as you know, Russian Duchess waves
are the best You'll need to have a nice wave for the Frosh or the
Sorority cabarets next week so you'd better phone Trinity 4727 right
away and get your appointment, as there is going to be a big rush for
this free offer.
Have you heard that Jay, our president, intends to go to the Frosh
attired in loud brown checked pants and a bright colored shirt? You'll have
to pick your clothes with care, co-eds if you want to outshine him. Why
not go down to MADAME RUNGE'S at South Granville and look over some
of her stunning afternoon and informal evening dresses' She is featuring
rust quite prominently and there is an adorable dress in this attractive
color trimmed with net appliques outlined in gold beads.
Black is considered smarter than ever this year, so why not try
on the tunic dress which has the new shorter tunic and is embroidered
in gold lame It also has a lame scarf and corded belt of gold. This is
a dress which is impossible to resist and would be perfect both for the
Frosh or sorority tea dates.
Pecary gloves in dark beige! Even a millionairess couldn't get better and you lucky var^ty
girls can get them made to order for only $3.25
at the TAILORED WOMAN, which is run in con-
lunction with the Wool Shop at 2207 West 41st
Avenue.
These gloves are perfect for driving and all
sports and while casual enough for campus wear
they are also correct when worn with tailored
clothes down town. They retain all their fit and
smartness for years, outlasting all other types of
gloves.
If you prefer, you may order suede gloves in
almost any shade to match your suit or coat. Belts and hats can also
be tailored out of leather to order. If you have an old suede coat which
is now unused you can get one or two pairs of gloves made from it at
the Tailored Woman.
You may also order knitted suits from the Wool Shop specially
knitted for you with their lovely wools. They go very well with leather
accessories.
Everybody seems to be wearing suits this season. Why not make
yours just a little different. There is no trick to it—just wear one of
the new dark blouses sponsored by the LINGERIE SHOP on South Gran-
vi I le Mrs Paton says black is the best of All She can show you some
very smart blouses in midnight black with Peter Pan collars and crystal
buttons If you prefer something a little softer there are those which
have the cunnmgest beruffled jabots. She is featuring triple sheers in
brown, navy, and pastels as well as black, all carrying the latest fashion
details and priced from $295 up.
You will need a new pair of dress shoes to wear
at those sorority rushing dates and RAE-SONS BUDGET Shop is the best place to get perfect fit and
complete satisfaction at a reasonable price. Just
walk up stairs from Rae-Sons main floor on 644
Granville Street and you will find shoes to suit your
every need at college.
Patent trimmed suede is very smart just now and
the Budget shop is featuring models with the new
side tie m brown and black. Just right for an afternoon tea date Or there are the brown and black
stitched gabardines which promise to be so popular
this fall.
You cannot fail to be satisfied at the Budget shop where every pair
of shoes is tops and still only costs $6.60.
And where do all the most prominent Varsity students go to get
their pictures taken, Frosh?   Why ABERS of course, the best photographer
in town.
As Mr   Aber says, "Your friends can buy anything you give them
but your picture."   Quite a thought, isn't it?
And out-of-town students, think how the family would like a picture of you now that you are not at home. Aber can get the real you
to give them.
Going to give a sorority tea or just any kind of;
tea? Is it difficult getting your table centre to har- j
momze with your decoration scheme? Well, not a bit;„

FRESHETTES ROMP AT
SUPPER PARTY
' W. V. S. SPONSOR
BABY PARTY
Gay in starched organdy and bows, freshettes lisped
greetings to each other on the occasion of their first university banquet when they met at the children's party in the
cafeteria last night.
Suckers and goodies to thrill a youngster's heart met
the eyes of the delighted infants-for-a-day as their big
sisters guided them to the caf and tied napkins under their
chubby little chins.
Freat was the chagrin when
wayward new co-eds discovered that their desultory disregard of initiation necessities had not been put over
and all those freshetes that
had been noted as lacking bonnet or. pigtail were called upon to entertain the guests
with impromptu song, and
dance.
The remainder of the program was composed of songs,
yells and children's games

convenors and assistants,

PHRATERES
EXPLAINED
Historical Sketch by
Executive Member
By NORAH SIBLEY
In the eyes of Freshettes a
certain mystery surrounds the
name "Phrateres," and if
their courage permits them
to attempt its pronunciation
an outstanding originality is
displayed. To the Greeks the
word meant brotherhood, and
to the club members it is generally interpreted as standing
for that warm feeling of interest and goodwill existing
among members of a family.
Originating at the University of
California in 1924, the organization
has pread to eight American colleges, although U. B. C. holds the
distinction of being the first Canadian university to include it in its
campus life.
MEMBERSHIP  INCREASING
It was in 1934 that Clare Brown,
enthusiastic president of the W. U.
S., introduced Phrateres to meet a
definite need existing in the campus
life of the women students. It met
with an enthusiastic welcome and
seven sub-chapters were immediately organized, each with an approximate membership of twenty
girls. Since then membership has
increased steadily. Within the smaller unit of the sub-chapter the girls
meet twice monthly for a socjal
and a business meeting. Various
activities such as theatre parties,
hikes, club breakfasts, etc., are arranged during the holidays. Large
major functions which All-Phra-
teres sponsors include the annual
Faculty Tea and Initiation Banquet.
FAMOUS  FOR FRIENDLINESS
As its motto "Famous for Friendliness" implies, the organization
aims to bring the women of the
campus into closer contact with one
another. As Dean Bollert says:
"Phrateres offers the best opportunity on the campus for the forming of friendships at a minimum
cost of time and money."

Freshette Tea
In Caf.
In a section of the cafeteria
corraled off from the common run of business by rows
of tables, the senior women
entertained their "little sisters" a.t tea this week, on the
occasion of the annual senior-
freshette tea sponsored by
the Women's Undergraduate
Society.
In order that the freshettes
might talk personally with the
leaders of the activities in which
they are interested, booths for the
different women's sports and clubs
were set up around the room.
The "big sisters" who found
themselves responsible for serving
tea to the freshettes experienced a
little more difficulty in manipulating tea trays through the crowd
than they were wont to do at former teas held in the more spacious
gymnasium.
portant part in campus life is affirmed by Audrey Horwood, president of the W.U.S. "I am highly
appreciative of the service Phrateres renders the campus as a
whole. It keeps the majority of the
women organized and provides a
continuous social contact impossible in the loosely-organized structure of the Women's Undergraduate Society. I think Phrateres has
a niche for every girl on the campus and every girl a contribution to
make to Phrateres."
FRESHETTES WELCOMED
The club is thoroughly democratic and all freshettes desirous
ot membership are cordially Invit
ed. "We hope," says Madge Neill,
this year's president, "that as many
freshettes as possible will join
Phrateres, for in so doing they can
give it the impetus of new enthusiasm and assist in carrying out our
purpose of making Phrateres a significant organization on the campus."
Old Phratereans
Confer
Club Room To
Be Rented
On Wednesday afternoon
old members of Phrateres
cast aside their student worries to gather in the Lower
Common Room for a friendly
chat and tea. Old acquaintances were renewed and fresh
ones made amidst a lively
hub - hub of laughter and
good-will.
Phrateres' colours of blue
and gold were carried out in
the autumn flowers and tall
candles centering the tea-
table. Presiding at the urns
were Audrey Horwood, President of the W. U. S., and Beth
Evans, president of the Women's Athletic Association.
Katherine Scott, Muriel Chave,
Gertrude Grayson, Merle Turnbull,
Ellen Boving, Laurel Carter and
Mim Cosens acted as serviteurs.
Madge Neill, president of Phrateres, conducted the brief business
meeting which followed the tea. "It
is our purpose this year," she said,
"to make Phrateres a significant
organization on the campus and to
co-operate to make many new
friendships."
She explained the new system of
organization, by which the subchapters are being formed to suit
the time at which the girls can
meet. It is felt that this change
will make possible much better attendance and so arouse much greater enthusiasm in the club's activities. Freshettes are cordially invited, and nil girls are requested to
register as soon as possible that the

functions.
InfofmiI Firctidci
Before Church
The Women's Undergraduate Society has arranged firesides at the homes of seniors
and juniors for the purpose of
welcoming freshettes more
personally than possible at
the larger functions. These
parties will be held at the
homes of about flften upper-
class women on Sunday afternoon at 4.30.
The freshettes will receive
their invitations from the individual hostesses by phone
and an attempt will be made
to group the newcomers with
a few of their friends. Among
the guests will be several up-
perclass women with whom
freshettes will also become
acquainted.
Each of the hostesses has planned an afternoon of games, Varsity
sing-songs and individual entertainment. Following the afternoon
parties the freshettes will be able
to attend, together, the special University church service which is to
be held in the Canadian Memorial
chapel unday evening.
In charge of the arrangements
for these firesides is Madge Neill,
president of the Phrateres, assisted by members of the Phrateres
executive.

SOPHETTE AND SENIOR
VIEW OUR RUSHING
PROBLEMS DISCUSSED
INSIDE AND OUT
By Sophette
"Going to Kappa Kappa tea
this afternoon?'
"No, I'm going to the Kappa
Alpha Theta. What do you
think of it all?'
"They're very sweet to you,
but there seems to be such a
lot of intrigue behind the
scenes."
The rushees try, and often
very successfully, to be blase,
but underneath the arched
eyebrows and wise smile lies
a watery fear which mostly
consists of wonder about an
overheard remark: "There's
nothing lower on this earth
than a fraternity pledge."
The first formal teas seem always to be in a remote part of the
city or of a building which the unfortunate rushee has never had an
opportunity to explore. In most
cases, however, the scientifically
trained minds of the co-eds cope
with this problem and they finally
arrive.
STIFF FORMALITY
It is a great deal of help that
the sorority girls all know the
names and interests of the rushees
and discuss the same with charming concern, but that can't go on
forever and the conversation does
lapse occasionally just enough to
let the sophettes feel the slightly
stiff formality due, they have heard,
to the fact that the fraternity members are there only because they'd
have been fined if. they hadn't come.
Close on this comes disillusionment. Is that what sorority life is
like ? Duties and fines—how dreadfully boreing. But then, just in
time, a faint gurgle is heard from
where several old members are discussing a particularly thrilling
camp incident.
Interest returns and, still on this
wave of enthusiasm, the guests are
carried off to the dining-room
where with relatively few wooden
movements on the parts of the
rushees or rushers the tea is terminated.
Homeward bound the sophomores
wax satirical over the recently past
function in an effort to soothe a
fear that they have not impressed
and a little less gnawing fear that
they had not been impressed.
INFORMAL EASE
The informal teas are better. Instead of finding herself drowning in
a sea of strange faces, each one of
whom seems to be leering in expectation of recognition, the sorority guest finds herself couched comfortably between several friends
conversing easily, perhaps almost
cleverly, with three other less fa-
familiar rushers, the personalities
and names of whom she has had
the opportunity to connect.
But this earlier chaos does not
give way long to the peace of
informal teas. There is always that
insidious sorority girl met somewhere, among seventy others* who
approaches, wanting to know if it
is you or someone else that is invited to such and such an address
on such and such a date, for one
of her rushing teas.

Life is grim; life is hard.
Life is not all beer and
skittles.
No longer do I sit peacefully in the Cafeteria chatting
with sisters under the skin.
No, for I must be always on
the lookout for the abstract
and eligible rushee, crystallized in the concrete personality of some probably friendly and certainly charming
sophomore whom I would
like to consign to Hades but
dare not. Be it not thought
therefore that I do not like
her, for I do. I like her only
too well. So I seek her out
religiously, make conversation which I know that she
knows that I know that she
knows is trivial, and strive to
tear myself away from her at
the precise moment before
my society becomes burdensome.
Gloom Settles
This is the preliminary or trial
heat. It is followed by official rushing, a mad race from start to finish.
Rushees are invited to a tea. Tho
tea is planned with careful attention to detail. At the appointed
hour and the appointed place, active and alumni members gather
together bound by the strained silence of suspense. Disguised gloom
settles down on the congregated
multitude, for the hours are passing and one rushee is present. At
last, in threes and fours they arrive They have been at another
tea. They are here. Relief sweeps
like a wave over the room, and
everyone drives madly into conversation and tea.
Strain Increases
The strain increases as days pass,
and we are plunged into the complicated system of handicaps known
as individual rushing. Lunches,
teas, shows, lunches, teas—and the
active member is very active and
goes about in a daze making automatic gestures of courtesy. Everything is leading up to the supreme
climax of the informal evening
party. It must be impressive, yet
it must be seemingly careless and
informal. These little details of
decorations and songs and entertainment must be .considered. They
must be perfect, and time is very
short.
Trust in Fate
Time is so short that suddenly
the party is a thing of the past,
and there is only one more tea to
look forward to. But rushing is
almost over, and all is in the hands
of the gods. We tilt back our chairs
in the Cafeteria, talk happily- and
inconsequentially of little things,
and trust in fate.

Larger Paper and
More Features
Planned
By  LARRY ALEXANDER
UNIVERSITY OF ALBERTA, Ed-
monton, Sept, 28. (WIPU)—Frank
G. Swanson, Editor in Chief of the
Gateway, in an interview today gave
a brief outline of some of the innovations which can be expected in
the paper during the coming winter.
"Emphasis will be placed on the
news aspect of the paper," he announced. "In general appearance
and makeup the paper will more
closely resemble the city dailies
than has been the case heretofore.
The size of the page has been somewhat increased and will now consist of seven columns instead of
six."
Pictorial work will also be greatly stressed this year, it being the
Intention to Include pictures of
every event possible. The principle
of issuing rotogravure sections, inaugurated last year will not only
be retained but extended. The first
of these supplementary rotogravure
sections will appear in the issue of
the Gateway for October 9. The
first issue of the Gateway for this
term will appear Friday of this
week. An innovation will be the
publication of the paper in two sections, as is done with the city
dailies.
The entire issue will consist of
11 pages, which will appear as a
flr3t section of six pages and a sec
oncl section of eight. The sections
will be folded together. Other new
features of this year's paper will
be the publication of a weekly movie column, and the use of a new
modernistic nameplate on the front
page.
Dutch Scholar To

Student Opinion On Pass System
Discovered By Ubyssey Canvass
HEADS SENIORS
With the Pass System fast becoming the outstanding
topic of discussion on the campus, the Ubyssey presents
below a series of interviews with students. An attempt has
been made to give expressions of opinion from all types
of students.
John Witbeck, President of
the M. U. 8.:
"I think that the pass system will
undoubtedly be a good thing if it
goes through with sufficient support."
Questioned about the Sciencemen
who so strongly opposed the measure last year, Witbeck gave it as
his opinion that the number of actual objectors was very small, and
that the pass system did not affect these Sciencemen more adversely than Artsmen. He hoped it
would instil some pep into the flag-
ing University spirit.
•
Archie Byert, Captain of
the Swimming Club:
"Although the pass system will
carry no particular advantages for
the Swimming Club, I am nevertheless In favor of the bill. It certainly should draw bigger crowds
to the rugby gamea, give a better
backing to the University teams,
and create a better spirit in the
University as a whole.'
Archie would like to see the pass
Include, if it were possible, the
Swimming Oalas.
Graham Darling, Players'
Club Membsr:
"As far as the Players' Club is
concerned, it will be extremely advantageous. It should eliminate any
loss on club performances, as our
budget can be calculated accurately.
"Besides saving money for all
concerned, it certainly should create a good spirit among the students. It will mean that they will
turn out in good numbers to most
of the important University functions."
Audrsy Horwood, Prssidsnt
of W. U. 8.:
"I ani very much ln favor of the
pass system Insofar as it would ensure better university spirit manifested by full attendance at games
and other university functions. It
should encourage student talent in
the Players' Club and Musical Society, as they will play to bigger
audiences. It Is almost Inevitable
that they should get bigger receipts
If the general public continues to
support them, for the student receipts  will   be  ensured."
Beth Evans, President
of W. A. 8.:
"I think It's a swell Idea, and it
should foster a lot of university
spirit.' People seem to be distrustful of it because they think we're
trying to give them something for
nothing, but it's just the same principle as mass production: a lot of
tickets can be sold for less money
than a few."
Beverley Cunningham,
Phrateres:
"I'm all for the pass system. It's
a very fine idea. There will be a
wider range of opportunity for seeing games, and in this way the
teams will be encouraged. The Musical Society and the Players' Club
could both stand a lot more support
than they have been getting. They
certainly deserve it, and I think
the pass system will help them obtain it."
Phil Emsry, Pres. 8. M. U. 8.:
"Frankly, I am not in favor of
the proposed system as it now
stands. I believe that Science will
not derive full benefit from it, but
I am in favor of having a separate
Science pass system which would
cover all Science functions and
events. Although it would be a
bit more expensive it would be
worthwhile to Sciencemen."
"Bud" Burden, Ex. See'ty
Solenoe '39:
"Although I was in favor of the
system at the first I should like to
know the grounds on which the
System was rejected by the Board
of Governors before I committed
myself further. I too am heartily
In favor of a separate Science Pass
System."
Trevor Davis, Scienceman:
"There are some of us who believe that, as gentlemen, we should
be permitted to exercise our own
Judgement concernlrig those functions which we may wish to attend.

More Money
At a meeting of the Rowing Club
held last Monday, president Wilson
McDuffee announced that the Rowing Club this year with a larger
grant from Student's Council and
an advance in status will try to accomodate the great number of
freshmen and novices turning out
this year.
The Club are fortunate thla year
in again obtaining the coaching
services of Tom Brown, Professor Brand and West. It was due
greatly to the enthusiasm shown
by the coaches that the Rowers
were able to put up suoh a fine
showing In their meets last year,
overcoming the disability of the
poor equipment.

Use Prosperity
Certificates
By Larry Alexander
UNIVERSITY OP ALBERTA,
Edmonton, Sept. 29 (WIPU).—
Province of Alberta "Prosperity
Certificates" came into their own
as far as student organizations
were concerned last Saturday evening. A freshman attending the
Freshman "Mixer Dance" that
evening in the diningroom of Athabasca Hall, tendered one of the one-
dollar certificates in payment of
admission for himself and his partner. Bill Scott, President of the
Students' Union, who was officiating at the door, accepted the "certificate" in payment of the seventy-
cent admission charge and gave the
freshman change in Canadian currency. This is the first known case
of one of the provincial certificates
being offered or accepted by a student organization at this university.

CORRESPONDENCE
Editor Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
In view of the fact that the
Ubyssey as well as the Vancouver
newspapers, has unwarrantedly
quoted me on the matter of the
Student Union Building, I take this
opportunity to make my position
clear. The total monies in hand, and
funds quickly available, amounts
to approximately $43,000.
As to when the building will be
constructed is a matter depending
on the success this winter of efforts
which will be made, not on the university campus, to raise additional
funds.
Yours,

Vacation over, thousands of young folk back on
the campuses; back to lectures, back to teachers,
reading, new interests and activities—all those formative influences which in the aggregate play so
important a part in determining the character of
these young collegians.
They are a YOUTH GROUP.
They are a market of YOUTHFUL BUYERS.
Their tastes and preferences are still in the making — still to be formed are their preferences for
shops, services, merchandise, still undetermined
their judgement of price and quality, their choice
of brands. This YOUTH GROUP is therefore more
easily influenced and has fully 15 years longer to

A FROM OTHER PAPERS &
The Great God, Conversation
A SKETCH ... By Eleanor Collbran
I'm not a very good judge of character, but when I saw that
rushee turn up our path, I knew that the cream of the crop was at
our very threshold. I ran for the door, stood there collecting my
thoughts and manners until the bell rang, turned the knob, and pulled.
Five feet of sweet simplicity entered blushingly.
"How do you do?" I inquired with the air of one whose only concern is the healthy of the rushee. "I'm Mary Baker.
"Oh," was the enthusiastic reply, "My name is Elizabeth None-
characteristic of the young generation.
I ushered Miss Nonesuch into the living-room and ceremoniously
seated her in the most comfortable chair. Nothing was too good for
Nonesuch. Immediately my sisters sprawled in a ring at her feet, and
I thought, (in that scrutinizing way of the older generation) that she
looked like a goddess on a pedestal and we were her humble servants.
One of the sisters asked her if she were in school. The reply was a
brief and hardly-audible, "Yes." Then silence. "Do you like your
profs?" "Yes." More silence. "Did you get into all your classes?"
"Yes."
Oh, Great God of Conversation, what could we do? "Have you ever
been to Europe?" "No." Well, something had to be done in a hurry.
You simply can't tell much about a girl's character if she only says yes
and no. I spoke up. "Brain-storm," I began, addressing my intellectual
room-mate, "where'd you get that divine dress?" "Stupid, you know
I made it!" I sat there scowling at my own uneducated fingers. They
couldn't even tell a needle from a crowbar.
"Then the miracle happened. "I can sew," murmured the child on
the pedestal. 'NoI" we all exclaimed, glancing at each other unbelievingly. Simultaneously we all followed her lead. "Did you make that
dress?" "No." Complete silence.
We tried in every way to extract a conversation from her, but we
always met with dismal failure. We smiled the charming smile of
relief when the new shift of rushers came forward to take our dear
charge off our hands. Quickly we excused ourselves and went into a
corner to dissect Miss Nonesuch.
In the corner, we whispered our comments. "She'd be swell if she
could talk. She'd do us a lot of damage in another house. Why, she's
our standards, she's right up there with all of us!" This came from
Brain-storm.
"Yes," I agreed, "but we'll have to rush her the way the Allies
rushed Chateau Thierry if we really want her. She's Signi Phi Nothing's
latest nugget."
"They haven't a chance," added a third sister in that matter-of-
fact way that means confidence. We decided that we'd better renew
our attack, and, armed with fixed determination, we followed the rushee
into the dining-room.
She was seated comfortably and fed bountiously. We surrounded
her and shot a volley of questions at her. It was no use. The child
was so shy, or so scared, that we might just as well have been trying
to get something out of a professor. The tea was passed. The fragrant
aroma of sandwiches approached. We pile Miss Nonesuch's plate high
with our favorite delicacies. When the rush captain wasn't looking we'd
stuff one or two, or even three, into our mouths, and giggle up at Nonesuch. That's good psychology. Make the rushee feel like a partner in
crime, and she'll be sure to feel right at home.
She ate daintly. We ate like starved vultures. We were far too
busy to think about the gentle but difficult art of conversation. We
stared at Nonesuch longingly, and wondered when she'd go.
Our mental telepathy worked perfectly. "I simply must be going,"
she said of her own sweet will. Of course, we all said we were terribly
disappointed that she couldn't stay longer. Nevertheless, we hurried
her to the door.  "I've had a lovely time," she said demurely.  "We're
all so glad. Goodbye, Elizabeth, and we'll see you tomorrow."
*       ♦       *
With nothing less than complete exhaustion, we closed the door on
rushee and rush party, and hurried off to think up more questions for
the next day.

A CO-ED REPORTS
ON CO-EDS IN SPORTS
Outlook Bright For This Year
Says Miss Ncvinson
Again it is time to give our teams
the once over to see what we can
see, and incidently, to try to gain
an idea of how strong or successful they will be during the coming
season.
BASKETBALL
As usual, the basketball prospects are good. Indeed it is rumored that the mighty Province
squad expect to find their chief
oppsition in the lowly co-eds. This
year's senior team has as nucleus
six or seven of last season's stars.
Laura Nixon, forward, and Ena
Clarke, guard, who is always sink
ing almost impossible shots, will
again team up to bombard opposing baskets. Isabel Campbell, fast
ex-i*rovince centre, will be in the
thick nf it and doing more than her
share of the scoring. Margaret
Ralph should be even better than
usual, while Mary McCulloch will
always be doing her part.
Most prominent of the newcomers is Ruth Wilson, formerly
of Province. Ruth Is one of the
besiguards in the city and should
make a big difference to the
team. The remaining places will
be hotly contested for by last
year's intermediates, most promising of whom is Margaret Porter,
and by the very good turnout of
freshettes.
HOCKEY
The U. B. C. grasshockeyists are
expected to carry on the policy
started last year of winning all
their games. Seven of last year's
players, Sheila Wilson, Ellen Boving, Margaret Evans, Bea Hastings,
Pat Henbrow and Ellizabeth Houston are again turning out, Kay
Curtes, Varsity star, will probably
make the U. B. C. team, while the
other positions will go to other
Varsity players or to the freshettes.
TRACK
As usual, the track enthusiasts
are trying to start a club. WE
used to have one, about seven years
ago, but 'tis said the girls looked
ridiculous trying to run and jump,
so they were laughed out of it.
Interest declined, and so far we
haven't had enough girls who dared
say they wanted to run. Besides,
some people say it Is unladylike,
nut If anyone would like to Join
such a club, just get in touch with
Sheila Wilson, via the Arts Letter
Hack. About 20 people are needed.
MYUNE NEVISON.
ON TAKING NOTES
(BY PROF. WATSON KIRKCONNELL,
WESLEY COLLEGE.)
DEPARTMENT OF CLASSICS,
The Editor, one D'Arcy Dolan,
Whose bump of energy is swollen,
Mas pestered me to pen a treatise
On NOTES—not written to one's sweeties,
But that more melancholy kind
Peculiar to the college grind.
The trouble with the darned assignment
Is that the profs keep no alignment,
But are as various a lot
As were the beasts on Noah's yacht:
One doesn't seem to care a penny
What sort of notes you take—if any.
Another (how his pupils hate him!)
Wants every word set down verbatim
With punctuation to the comma.
(Imagine having been his momma!))
Others there are who ebb and flow,
Now fast and loose, now strict and slow,
With such disparity enormous
Between March Hare and fussy Dormouse
And intermittent Kangaroo,
What can a baffled Freshman do?
First let me postulate, my friend,
That notes are taken for an end:
The mastery, to wit, of knowledge,
For that is why you came to college.
Thus notes are not (please get this straight)
Stale victuals to regurgitate
With pain in April and December,
But aids to help you to remember
The deep significance in things
That a well-ordered lecture brings.
Therefore your mind, alert and ready,
'Must follow with attention steady
And flail the harvest from the chaff
In every wordy paragraph.
Storing it in your books away
For conning at the close of day,
And if some point is far from clear,
Just take it to your prof, my dear!
Ask him the How, Why, What, and
Wherefore—
That's what the learned lad is there for.
It follows from all this that you,
In class, must not admire the view
Out of the window, or, more flighty,
Wink at some idle Aphrodite,
Or wander, with attention skimpy,
In tales of Popeye, Toar and Wimpy,
Betraying by your vacant smile
The day-dreams of a juvenile.
Your note-books, likewise, should be
kept
Like tidy mansions, neat and swept.
Place every subject by itself—
Each package on its proper shelf:
Two subjects on a single page
Should put your Reason in a rage
As much as furnaces in garrets
Or sowing wheat with garden carrots.
Seeking what such notes are about,
The devil couldn't sort them out.
But ordered records that repeat
The distillate, the gist, the meat
Of each professor's rapt oration
Are central to your education.
—Manitoban.

KNOCK KNOCK
THE CYNIC HAD a rather
amusing experience the other night.
After watching the freshman register and chiselling two free meals
from the freshman orientation
lunch, he wandered downtown to
see a show. Right in the middle of
it was shown a scene of beautiful
young woman dressed in a negligee. Then at a propitious moment
two knocks were distinctly heard.
The young lady crushed her cigarette in an ash tray .conveniently
nearby.
"Who's there"? Her voice didn't
|,have too much curiosity in it.
"Henry," was the pedantic reply.
Then, in one accord the audience
arose and, in expectant unison,
shouted "Henry who?"
The person in question entered
without further ado, compeltely ignoring the audience's request for
his last name. He nursed a foetid
cigar between flaccid lips. The
movie fans relaxed into their usual
customary torpor, and the show
went on.
The Cynic, however, was also
filled with curiosity, and waited
until the show started again and
found his full name.

80 WHAT
ONE OF THE REASONS why
so many people are bored is because only the people who are interesting meet interesting people.
But if the interesting people
met only the bored people then they
would be bored too, and we would
have no interesting people.
But if the bored people met only
interesting people then they would
cease to be bored ,and we would
only have interesting people.
But if the interesting—oh, well,
you figure it out.

with  Victoria  Y.  M. C. A.,  one
with   University of Washington,
and another with the Vanoouver
A. 8. C, Victoria and Seattle In
an International gala Nov. 28 at
the Crystal Pool.
The splashers expect to turn in
good performances at all of these
meets in view of the fact that the
university has more ace swimmers
enrolled this year than ever befor.
Such   stars   as   Archie   Byers,
Norm   Walton,   Bruce   Millar,  An<
gelo Provenzano and Chris Stama-
tis can be counted on for points in
free style events from 50 yards to
a mile.    The  backstroke performers, Stan Roberts and Ian Smellie,
are right up In Canadian championship class. There are several breast-
stroke swimmers in the club who
can be counted on for points.
WOMEN STARS
As for the women's events Varsity has at least three competitors who are practically certain
point winners:  Peggy Higgs and
Bunny Butters In freestyle events
and  Pauline  Bamford  In  breast-

A BANNER YEAR
1938 will be a baner year for Varsity in the way of athletics If one
is to judge by the dally increase of
star players to the major sport
fields. Perhaps Its a reaction to the
low ebb that sports reached at U.
B.C. last year.
Take Ingllsh Rugby for example, In how many years has
the eoaoh had so much stellar
material from whloh to ohoose?
Consider such names as Bird,
Loflgatt, Pyle, Colthurst, Maguire,
Jim Harmer, Dave Carey, An*
draws, McPhee, Willoughby, Bardsley, Leeky.fwlng and many
others. What more eould one ask
for?
Basketball has an equal supply
of number one men; Bugs Bardsley,
M a t h i son, Willoughby, Hooker
Wright, Bill Swan, Jack Ross, and
Joe Pringle, all
present at one
time are enough
to make Coach
Montgomery think
Chris tmas now
comes in September.
Then ln Soccsr
there is: Bish
Thurber, Gerry
Sutherland, Don
Quayle, Phil Emery, Alan Croll and
MacBurney. If this doesn't enhear-
ten Coach Hitchens, nothing else
will.
Football's position although not
as strong as the others, Is certainly promising, eonsiderlng the
wise decision of the club to stlok
to its own game. Such men as
Bob Twiss, Barney Boe, Debtford,
Hodgson, Framp Price, Tom Williams, Charlton, Grey, Runkls,
Parkinson, Wark and Lewis
really mesn something under the
Csnsdlan code.
Track Is no exception: What
with McCammon and apRoberts
handling the weights, McPhee and
Williams sprinting, Alex Lucas
jumping and Wally Stewart and
Paddy Colthurst sharing the middle
distance laurels.

THEY NEVER REALIZE
This exceedingly bright side of
the picture is dimmed Just a little
by a disturbing report from team
managers that the expected turnouts of freshmen Into the various
campus sports has not taken
plaoe.
These complaints are heard
year after year. Somehow some
people at this university oan't
seem to realize that the easiest
way to get ths most value out
of a college education Is to balance their time so that their mental activity is offset by a reasonable amount of physical activity.
Perhaps, I might venture to
suggest, freshmen should uss a
little of that energy they have
displayed so effectively recently
in sports of a more organized
nature.

That HKKC HAY is engaged. . . .
That BURP WILLOUGHBY and

EDDIE MAGUIRE was home sleeping when the Province reported
that he was out. casting "an approving eye on a lwvy of beautiful

for Varsity sports news, was too
modest to write a story to the effect that he would play fullback
for the Rugby team. He passed the
buck to STU KEATE . . . that BILL
SWAN intends to play rugby.
SUGGESTION
Some Saturday afternoon when
you toss up whether to go to the
"CAPITOL" or the "GEORGIA,"
why don't you forgot both and
drop down to Brockton Point
and see some of these English
Rugby games. They are really
worth It, Just ask any of the regular Saturday customers to bear
me out It only costs 25 cents to
get in, so you can really save
money in the long run.
GAME AT
STADIUM
Pep Meet a Pre-Game
Feature
Tomorrow afternoon, Varsity's
English Ruggers will hold the Collegiate spotlight, with three games,
45' men, four managers, and one
coach all doing or dying for dear
old alma mater.
Captain Dobbie's first team,
whloh took plenty of picking, are
all set to give Oooaslonals a
post-gead initiation. The Grads,
after last week's setback by the
Rowers will naturally enough be
out to seek their revenge on the
all-prepared Collegians.
CAN HOLD BALL
Whether or not the opposition
will handle the ball is apparently
all that's worrying our entry. They
seem to have ball-carrying down to
a science, and take great delight
in smearing each other in the harmless practice scrimmages held for
the past two weeks. What they
will do in a league tilt will be demonstrated successfully (we hope)
tomorrow.
PEP MEET1
But—'tis not all the Miller Cuppers have planned. An enormous,
no   monstrous,  and   peppy   Pep
Meeting to Instill some of the defunct College spirit into tho apparently    unoonoerned    Student
body Is also on their program.
A PEP meeting with all the trimmings—Cheer Leaders, Entertainment, Orchestra, and the TEAM.
To say "Orchestra" would not do
Juatioe to the hard-working Ruggers,  for  they've   succeeded   in
getting   Stan   Patton'a  Band   of
the Spanish Grill, Alma Academy
and way points.    The Time —
12.15.   The Plaoe — Auditorium.
The Date—TODAY.
Dave Carey, Men's Athletic prexy,
and one of the chief organizers of
this bang-up show has announced
that all the members of the three
teams will be there.    Which members will be seated ln the first four
rows—or   in   other   words,   Frosh,
they're   reserved.    A   reminder  to
the Ruggers from Dave—First team
are asked to sit in the front row,
the Second In the second, and so
on.    Also—All  players  should  be
equipped  with  Varsity  strip,  and
should be on time wherever their
games are scheduled.
All of which brings us to a very
Important point—where the battles
will take place. Captain Dobbie's
First team will perform in the stadium at 3 o'clock, with the aforementioned Occasionals providing
the opposition. Preceding this
struggle at 2, will be a game between U. B. C. 2nds, A's and Meralomas, the latter having finally decided to take a fling at the English
Code, Douglas East, also at 2 o'clock
will be the scene of a brawl between gladiators representing the
"Challengers" and Varsity 2nds, Bs.
The teams:
First—Andrews, fullback; Leggatt, Bird, Ellis, Wilson, three-quarters; Willoughby, Carey, halves;
Andrews, Housser, Madely, Pyle,
Harmer, Maguire, Swan, Watson,
forwards.
Seconds — Bardsley, fullback;
Day Smith. Trussell, Butters, Ross,
Lumsden, vice-captain; Whittle,
halves; R. Robertson, Stewart, Hobson (captain, temporary); McCammon, Gross, Leckle-Ewlng, Pyle,
forwards.
Thirds — Tlndale, fullback; R.
Smith (captain); Sloan, Ker, Walsh
three-quarters; Morrow, Griffin,
halves; 0. Robertson, Tupper, Anderson, T. Campbell, Ainsley (vice-
captain), R. Robinson, Knox, forwards.   •
Captains please see that your
teams are notified of the games.
Dave Carey
Intramural Sport
The ambitious intra-mural sport
programme directed by Proxy Dave
Carey will get under way next Monday, October 5th, when the English
rugby squads of Science 39 and Arts
'39 clash In the opening game of
the new season.
Games will be played on a point
basis as last year and the high-
point teams at the end of the year
will be in line for the Governor's
cup.
A complete schedule for future
games will be published ln the next
issue of the Ubyssey.
A meeting ot class athletic representatives will take place next
Monday In Arts 100.
Here is Dave Carey, the
Thunderbird English Ruaby
Captain, when he played for
the famous North Shore All
Blacks. Carey will lead his
men against the Occasionals tomorrow in first game
of the season for UBC.
GRID LINE
STRONGER
Team Has Light But
Speedy Backfield
With their first game less than
two weeks away, the Collegiate
Gridmen are training the hard way.
Stiff before • breakfast workouts
which include heavy scrimmages,
and plenty of practice on intricate
manoeuvres are the orders of the
day.
The "36-37" Thunderbird Grid Machine
has potential power
In the heavy, bruis-
linemen. Straight,
Boe, Stradlottl, Light-
stone and McHugh
are all big boys who
look capable of murdering all would-be
line-smashers on the
opposition teams. Boe
To offset the weight of the blocking bruisers up front, the Alma
Mammy boys have a fairly light
and speedy backfield. Williams,
Charlton, Grey, ApRoberts, Wark,
Parkinson, Morrow, Angus and
Pearson are the potential passers,
and punters on the team.
TWISS BACK
Doc Burke, well-known coach of
the pigskin artists, received welcome news yesterday, when he
learned that Bob Twiss will be
back to Varsity this semester. Bob,
who is a big fellow with plenty of
football ability, will probably be
seen ln his old position as block-
In half.
Hudson at Varsity
Bill (Hank) Hudson is at Varsity. To those who can remember back two years this is the
same fellow who was a sub on
the Victoria Blue Ribbon team
which took the B. C. title away
from the Varsity Hoopers.
NOTE TO MANAGERS
This department would appreciate it very much If the managers
of the sub majors and minor sports
would help us by turning in any
notices or news which they have
direct to the pub office. The reason
we ask you to do this is that as
yet we have a small staff and octuple te coverage of all the various
Varsity teams is nearly Impossible.
Your teams are as deserving of
space as are the majors, and in
fairness to yourself we ask you to
do this for a while at least. Later
we hope to organize the staff so
that this will not be necessary.
SOCCERMEN
PLAY SAT.
Team to Meet
Former "Liberals"
In the premier soccer encounter
of the new sason, the Seniors are
scheduled to meet Twigg Island
Dairy, on Saturday, at Wilson Park,
41st and Fraser. The game is set
for 3 p.m.
F08TER TO PLAY
The Senior lineup is composed of
most of last year's Seniors, with
the addition of Foster, the promising freshman. Mahood and Rush
will also show for the Seniors, if
they continue to show the style
which they have featured at practices.
The Junior team, too, has been
reinforced with commendable
material from the Freshman
ranks, and both teams expeet to
provide formidable opposition
this year.
"The teams are in prime condition now," states Dave Kato, club
president, "and should prove their
worth from the outset."
Soccerites recruited from the
Freshman ranks are Foster, Mahood, Rush and Cousin. Bish Thurber will also return to action this
season, and will as always be a valuable asset to the team.
"We have much more promising
material than previously, and I feel
certain that both teams will finish
out in front this year," states Coach
Hitchins.
SATURDAY'S TKAM
The team will be ln first class
shape for the Saturday game, and
Prexy Dave Kato wants to see
plenty of support out. It should be
a real battle as the Twigg Islanders were last year's Liberals.
Lineup for Saturday's game follows :
Emery, Croll, Sutherland, McBurney, Quayle, Thurber, Chapman,
Sager, Godard, Mizuhara, Chester,
Klrkpatrick,   Foster.
Track Star at U. B. C.
Of interest to Varsity track
fans is the news that Ap. Roberts, the boy who showed up so
well for Magee High School in
the last inter-high track meet,
is registered at U. B. C. Jim
McCammon, veteran track man
and newly elected president of
the club, will find in Ap. Roberts
competition for honors when
the freshmen meet the Varsity
on October 21 in the stadium
site oval.
THIRD RUGGERS WIN
Varsity's English Rugby "thirds,"
with no practice, did themselves
proud on Wednesday afternoon,
smearing St, Georges in a convincing manner—in fact, by a 13-3
score.
Conclusive proof that spirit plus
precision is an unbeatable combination was given by the Alma Mammy boys in their merited win. Machine-like passing attacks, and merciless tackling were outstanding
virtues of our practice-less team.
One try by Campbell, and two by
Drabble, with two conversions
made the 13-point Varsity total,
while a single, solitary try was the
only reply from the College Prep-

Froth Regulations
The official list of freshmen regulations has been released. The list
for 1936-37 is as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Freshmen are not allowed to
use Junior or Senior wings in
the Library.
Freshmen must not smoke in
any of the buildings, except
the   Cafeteria   and   common
rooms.
Then there is one's room to be mada
attractive, the place where friends will be
entertained which one makes at the University. One thinks immediately of book
ends and lampt and a mort attractivt
collection doesn't exist in any University
city in Canada or abroad than ia to be

And now I come to campus clothes
for those of my charming readers, the
freshettes of U. B. C. It is so important that htr college wardrobe shall
include what is correct to wear, and
smartest. First, campus dresses. Velveteen and plaid tunic dresses are smart. So
is a two-piece checked wool. Or an
embroidered wool tunic dress. All ara
correct. But do a bit of style scouting
yourself at Spencer's. You'll be surprised
at the delightful variety.   And don't for
got that coat either for those cold 9
o'clock lectures. Nothing more dashing
than this illustrated model with belt and
fetchingly wide lapels end collars.
And here is a hint about hets for the
campus. You can talk about your high
hats . . . but the beret is definitely in
tht picture for wear on the campus. What
tht beret lacks in eclat and sophistication ia more than made up in practicality
and charm. And thost you may sat in
Sptncors millinery department simply
reek with style. Furthermore, they're et
youthful as the blush of U. B. C.'s sweetest freshman and about as charming as
anything you could behold,
Frosh muat give up their seats
in the bus or Cafeteria to upper classmen.
4. Freshettes must not wear any
make-up on the campus during
the initiation period.
5. Freshmen must not put their
hands in their pockets.
6. All Frosh must be able to repeat any song or yell in the
handbook upon request.
7. All Frosh must wear their Insignia at all times on the
Campus.
8. All, Frosh must attend all
meetings held for them and
must occupy the front rows in
the auditorium.
9. All Frosh must remove trays
from the tables ln the cafeteria
at noon hour.
10. Frosh must not wear any high-
school pins or sweaters, etc.
11. Freshettes must wear one braid
with a clothespeg on it.
Penalty: Infringement of these
rules will mean the loss of the free
ticket to the Frosh Reception.
The responsibility lies with the
sophomores to see that these rules
are observed. Freshmen may be
picked up anywhere on the campus
for infringement.
The traditional shoeshine parlour
has already been set up in the quad.
Here delinquent freshmen will
spend weary hours polishing the
natty footwear of their immediate
superiors. Upperclassmen pay a
cent a shine—but the frosh don't
profit.
COMMUNISM IS
NOT PREVALENT
IN SPAIN'S GOVT.
U. B. C. Grad Tells
Of Revolution
Bill Gibson, B.A., addressed
200 students ln Arts 100 Tuesday on the subject of the
Spanish revolution. Bill, a
graduate of U. B. C, and a
former student of Oxford and
Yale, was studying in Spain
when the revolt broke out,
and found it convenient to
leave hastily on an American
battleship.
MUCH UNEMPLOYMENT
Although he saw few actual
scenes of war, Bill was in close
touch with the raw material out of
which the revolution was manufactured, and described the situation
as he saw it. "The illiteracy of
the Spanish is a great factor in the
promotion of far-reaching popular
movements," he said. "There Is
also a great deal of unemployment
and unrest contributing to the same
result. Yet the youth of the country are Intelligent and bright."
Bill explained that the main problem of the republican government
of 1931, and of any government
which may succeed it, was the distribution of land. Germany and
Italy have already supplied the present Fascist organization in Spain
with the funds to meet this problem. He mentioned that most people
are not aware of the fact that the
loyalist government cabinet Is
made up exclusively of liberals, and
that there Is not a single communist or socialist in it.
NEWS CENSORED
"The war ln Spain Is by no means
over," said Bill. "I expect a great
resistance from Catalonia, as that
country would lose the independence gained after 500 years of subjection if the present government
lost control." He refused to predict the outcome of the revolt, but
stated that news received from the
fight area is often censored and unreliable.
"Atrocity stories are not to be
trusted," he stated, "as they are
tor the most part nothing more
than propaganda. We must remember that most of our news of
the war comes from the rebel-held
town of Saville."
He described the "American invasion of Spain." American industry, he explained, has a firm foothold in the country, and it is no
exaggeration to say that there are
more Ford V-8's in the larger cities
than in Montreal. Bell telephones
are also much in evidence.
Concluding, Bill drew a comparison between Spain and other European countries. "The forces of
Intrenched reaction are active ln
all countries," he declared. To
prove his point that the general
trend of politics on the continent
was toward war, he read a list of
examples and statements of leading
diplomats of Europe.

made a slip yesterday which
would put an end to the career
of any lesser being.
He was speaking of the effect
of the Renaissance on England.
People, he said, felt released and
free.
"They ran out—they just—oh,
they just fairly kicked their
heels up for joy." The heels, he
declared, continuing his figure of
speech, made marks for all the
\\orld to see.
"Now," he said, forgetting
his knowledge of the common
tongue, "one of those heels was
William Shakespeare."
That's as far as he got.
Finally, my masters, while this is all for today, yon will, I am sure, be
interested to know that this is only an introductory account on outfits. Therefore, to be refreshingly different, I am going to present in subsequent issues
of The Ubyssey, not only the clothes which you can wear without cutting fashion
to the quick, but my own idea of what undergraduates can appear in without
boggling up the traffic. If you follow my suggestions you may be sure you
are correctly turned out. If you don't, go right ahead and wear whatever you
like. You'll at least be expressing your own personality even though you do
look faintly quaint.   We understand each other, don't we?   Okay. . . .
Pep Meeting At
Noon Today
Stan Patton and his orchestra,
well known to Varsity students,
will usher in the first pep meeting
of the year today at 12.15 in the
auditorium.
For the purpose of advertising
the rugby games, two of which are
in the stadium, the rugby club is
sponsoring this first pep meeting.
Promise of the introduction of
the rugby team scould assure a
large attendance of co-eds, while a
rugby sing-song should bring out an
equally large attendance of male
students.
Medical Exams Will
Be Given In Former
Lands Office Bldg.
Medical examinations of new
students will take place in the former University Endowment Lands
office, it was announced following
a Board of Governors meeting Monday evening. Recent years have
seen this work done in the outpatients' ward of the General Hospital, Dr. Klinck stated, but, although the Hospital authorities
were most generous, the accommodation was not satisfactory.
Three rooms are being prepared
in the old lands office building, and
these are expected to be more convenient for students. Two doctors
appointed by the Metropolitan
Health Board will conduct the
work.
The agreement between the university and the health board has
been completed, Dr. Klinck announced, and this institution is now
a part of the Metropolitan Health
system.

"SURREALISM" FEATURED
IN FILM PROGRAM
Film Society Presents Four Unusual
Foreign Pictures
Presenting brilliant photographic work and the strange
fascination of new film trends
In foreign languages, National Film Society's Initial program Wednesday night proved
an unqualified success
The
Little Theatre audience assembled enjoyed every variety
of film subject, treatment and
language, and was consequently delighted.
POUR  FEATURES GIVEN
Four features—a French cathed
ral subject, a wierdly humorous
Soviet cartoon, the striking Surrealist "Lot in Sdom," and the German
feature, "Kameradschaft," comprised the programme.
"Cathedrales," a survey of the
great French cathedrals and a
careful appreciation of their beauty
utilizes its subject for some ot the
loveliest photographic work conceivable. Oriel windows, spires,
gargoyles against a morning sky,
the incredibly rich detail of Amiens
are presented with imaginative artistry and respect.
The Soviet cartoon eerved aa
dietlnct entertainment contrast.
Whether the figures were modelled or sketched against cartoon
or model background ie etill a
queetion, but the combined effect wae both puziling and delightful. An altogether dellrloue
dray-horee and a nightmare Ford
were the highlights of the cartoon, which appeared to be an Injunction to seek out the cleanliness of Soviet bathtube.
BIZARRE TREATMENT
The most bizarre and forecful
picture shown, "Lot in Sodom,"
was an American Surrealist treatment of the biblical theme. Here
the most amazing photography gave
exotic treatment to one of the most
sordid of the old biblical stories.
Greatest economy of detail, and
greatest variety of light and shade
treatment, with impressionistic
symbol supplementing the story,
characterize the pictorial work
here.
Incredible effects are obtained
by the imaginative handling of
smoke, vapour, a candle flame,
flowing water. Distortion, multiple
exposure, out-of-focus shots are
many, but each serves a purpose,
This picture was undoubtedly
the strangest and moat fascinating of the evening. The reaction
of U. B. C. undergraduates to aln
and Surrealism wae Intereeting.
"Kameradschaft"— Comradeship
—directed by the German Pabst,
was a straightforward narration of
a mine disaster in the Ruhr, and
of human fellowship that can overcome national antagonism. Once
again simple, dramatic camera
work carries a plain story to a powerful climax. In this stark commentary on mine conditions and
mining-town life, types are finely
cast and a remarkable atmosphere
of realism and tension sustained.
Dr. D. O. Evans, president ot the
National Film Society in Vancouver, spoke during the Intermission.
He outlined the alms and plans ot
the Society, and expressed the hope
that others might be Induced to
join now that the character of entertainment was approved. Certainly a programme as refreshing and
diverse as last night's is a pleasure
to attend.—J. B.
There will be a meting of all
thoee interested In forming a
Univereity Film Society on Tuesday at 12.30 In Arts 100.
