Of League
A Failure
Odium Criticizes
League9 of Nations
"A Critical View of the League of
Nations" was taken by Brig. Gen. V.
W. Odium at a Vancouver Institute
meeting in the Auditorium on Saturday night. "Tha powers meet to
checkmate each other, not to cooperate," he said.
"I see but two likely results. The
first is armed conflict; every nation but Germany is armed for it.
There is fear in Europe. France and
Belgium count the days to the next
"The second possibility is that the
league secretariat may save the lea-

The Libera). Party of B. C. got more votes than all other parties combined, and more than twice the votes of its closest contestant, the C.C.F., it was disclosed by the Ubyssey Straw Ballot conducted Friday to Monday.
The poll, conducted simply to discover the political opinions of the students, was responded to by three hundred and
thirty-five students, who distributed their votes in the following ratio:
C.C.F    80
UNIONIST       14
It must be kept in mind, however, that the number of stu-
,  m. .   . . .    , .      dents who voted was something under one quarter of the total
gue council. The secretariat is doing ° M
good work; it has the confidence 0f j registration, so that the results are to a limited degree only

In placing one ballot box each in the Men's Science and
Arts Common rooms, it was possible roughly to gauge the tendencies of these two sections. It was found that there were
about two Liberals to one C.C.F.-er among the Sciencemen,
while the Artsmen showed an even greater preponderance of
send to the council real statesmen
of international views, not men of the
present type, who are merely counsels  for their clients."
But neither General Odium nor his
audience seemed to have much hope
for a peaceful solution. General Odium said he had been a league enthusiast, but now he was beginning
to doubt. "I cannot praise it," he
snid. "unless I see logical reasons
to do so. And so far I have not been
able to see that there is any idealism at the heart of the league."
The speaker pointed out that the
league came from the continent least
concerned in it, and was accepted
by the Europeans because they looked upon it as the price they had to
pay for American help.
President Wilson was an idealist.
Lloyd George and Clemenceau were
politicians. They let Wilson have his
league, if he let them make the peace
treaties. He did and their treaties
make  his  league  impossible.
"The Balkans are still the Bal-
kiiiis," said Gen. Odium. "The small,
new states are full of vitality, and
full of hatred. Recovery of thc Polish
corridor is religion with thc Germans; they dream and piav foi it.
Germany has suffered and awaits revenge. France's great thought is security and a string of alliffs round

Gen. Odium was sympathetic to
Germany, and saw France as the
villain of the league. "France." he
said, "is trying to use ihe league.
The French want to give it teeth,
have a league army. Britain doe;
not agree. But Britain is with Franee
on the sanctity of the peace treaties.
"Canada's experience with the league has been a hanpy one, but the
American press lias always been critical of it. We non European nations
do not feel the vital importance of
it, and today it stands arraigned be-

Canadian U's
Show Growth
The growth of some of the universities in Canada in recent years has
been one of the interesting features
in the realm of education. The latest
report shows that the ten largest
Canadian universities in the Dominion in respect of students of university grades are as follows: University of Toronto 7,490; University
if Montreal 3,759; University of Manitoba 3,309; Queen's 3.184; Laval 2,H;i2:
McGill 2,714; University of Saskatchewan 2,fi(>l; University of British Columbia 1.989; University of Alberta
l.fiOO; and Western University at London. Ontario, 1.552. In respect of total enrolment. Laval holds first place
with 14.500; Montreal comes second
with 12.76:.: Toronto third with 8.088.
followed by Manitoba with 4.290; McGill. 4.015; Queen's. 3,904; Saskatchewan. 2,962: British Columbia. 2.772;
Ottawa.   2.573   and   Alberta,   1.938.
Tentative Time-Table
For Exams Posted
Copies of the time-table (tentative)
for the December Examinations in
the Faculty of Arts and Science have
been posted on the notice boards in
the Arts Building.
Students have been asked to report
clashes, if any, at once, to the Registrar's Office so that the time-table
may be drawn up definitely, and
In order to facilitate the preparation of the timetable members of
Faculty are requested to help remove
any clashes that may be reported before Nov. 4.
No proposal to change the timetable should be countenanced after
Nov. 4.
It has been decided in view of the
fact that two weeks is an insufficient
space of time in which to grow a
really luxuriant beard, that the closing date of our gigantic beard-growing contest will be Nov. 17 instead of
Nov. 10, the date previously announced.
Although few official entries have
come in as yet several embryo
beards have been observed on the
campus. Marvin Darrach, present
dark horse, is well past the .fuzzy
stage, and reports received here indicate that John /Hill, representing
'37. is sprouting like a hedge-hog.
Judging will be carried out by a
crew of co-eds to be selected by tne
Uby_sey, and will take place in public. Ambitious beard-growers are reminded that it is not yet too late to
enter the contest.

I Dear Dr. Buchanan
I    The experience of the University of
| Toronto with students who have
been admitted to advanced standing
in the the Faculty of Medicine, or
who have entered the first year
thereof from the Western Provinces,
has been eminently satisfactory. Not
only have some of the most outstanding students at graduation come
from the West, but the average records of these admitted "ad eundem
statum"  has been relatively high.
We   know   that   the   University   of
Biitish  Columbia  is  just  as  anxious
to maintain this high standard among
students   who   come   to   us   for   their
medical  education,  as our  University
is   to   avoid   being   embarrassed
weak   students.   For  that   reason,   we!
would   like   to  suggest  that   the   in- .Stead;

No less than forty-two students at
the California Atricultural college
spent a night in jail last week, for
raiding the Sacramento Junior College bonfire pyre.
Tho mortality rate was not high, in
fact the sum total of injuries, apart
from dignity infractions, was a broken
arm, a lacerated scalp ancl a severed
artery, variously distributed. Bill
Monahan. graduate manager of the
A.S.U.C., commented succintly in an
interview next clay. "They had a lot

Apparently they did.
Another jail item occurs in the
Manitoban, when brave headlines proclaim that four students of the University of Manitoba face jail-confinement in lieu of a thirty-dollar fine
while they can't raise Their offense
was speeding, and the penalty is fourteen days in jail.
In a statement made by the offenders they announce they intend appealing to the Attorney General, "As we
believe that it is impossible for us to

amount of lectures we will miss."
In an editorial in the Oregon Daily

is quoted, in connection with college
military training. He says; "I am

The Toronto Varsity reports the organization of a pacifist Club.
It seems strange that all the items
which are published in the college
papers are in favor of pacifism or at
least averse to forced military training. The ardent supporters of militarism never come back in print. They
can all probably read and write, too.
A new exchange paper is arriving
regularly at the publications office
this year. It comes all the way from
Scotland, and is published by the
Glasgow University Students Representative Council. Its name is The
Gilmorehill Globe. Ancl it sells to
the extent of two thousand copies per
edition at the price of one penny.
A grisly bit of humor is contained
in the copy for last week. It. is in an
article entitled "Should a Doctor

Med. School with a med habitue,
whose monologue forms the article.

Exchange Students
At Four Universities
Six Canadian students are this year
studying under Exchange Scholarships, it is announced by the National Federation of Canadian University
Students. The scholarships are awarded annually by the N.F..C.U.S. with
the approval of the university authorities of Canada. The holder of an
Exchange Scholarship may study for
one year at a university other than
his "home" university without paying tuition or Student Council fees.
At the end of the scholarship year
the Exchange Scholar is required to
return to his "home" university to
complete his course.
Following are the six who were appointed for the current session:
1. Peter B. Anderson of Alberta, to
McGill; 2. Mary Macbeth of Alberta,
to Toronto; 3. E. R. Prcudhomme of
Manitoba, to Toronto; 4. Jean Hoshel
of Saskatchewan, to Toronto; S. Helen

Canadian Debaters
Tour Great Britain
Bates Team Here In 1934
On Tour of Canada
Two Canadian university debaters
are touring Great Britain th,js fall
under the auspices of the National
^deration of Canadian University*
Students and the national student
unions of England and Scotland.
Other tours arranged by the N.F.C.
U.S. for the current session are a
tour by » French-speaking debating
team from the University if Montreal,
and a coast-to-coast tour of Canada
by a team from Bates College, Maine.
The Canadian debaters visiting
Great Britain are George Forsey of
Mt. Allison University, New Brunswick, and A. K. Dysart Jr. of the
University of Manitoba.' In addition
to debating of the universities, Forsey and Dysart will take part in a
radio debate against an Oxford-London team. This is the second team
to be sent to Great Britain by the
N.F.C.U.S. The first, a McGill-Tor-
onto combination, went over in 1928.
A series of debates to be held in
the French language is something in
the nature of an experiment in this
country, at lca.it when the debates
take place outside of Quebec. During
the latter half of November Paul Dumas and Gerard Cournoyer of University of Montreal will engage in
such a tour under N.F.C.U.S. auspices. They will debate at the University of Ottawa, St, Boniface College (University of Manitoba), Mount
Royal College (Calgary), and the
University of Alberta.
In January ancl February of 1934
the main feature of the N.F.C.U.S.
debating program is scheduled. A
team from Bates College, Lcwiston,
Maine, will tour Canada from Halifax to Vancouver. Bates College is.
in the field of debating, probably the
most famous on the continent. Page Tw«

Touches On U.B.C.
Meralomas' grid machine pounded
out another victory at Athletic Park
last Saturday afternoon, downing the
fighting squad to win its first league
game 17-3.
Smart Football Displayed
Determined to do or die, the scrappy
students held the crack clubbers in
check throughout most of the first
half. A beautiful place kick 'by Kendall in the first quarter put U.B.C.
ahead, and from then until the last
half minute of the second quarter
neither team had the advantage of
play for very long. In that 30 seconds
Mearlomas pushed over a touchdown
which was converted, and crossed
thair opponents' line once in each of
the two remaining periods.
Despite the sodden field and steady
downpour of rain both teams displayed an exciting brand of football,
and if it had not been for two major
fumbles the score would have been
written in single figures.

Wednesday, Nov. 1, at 3:30 is the
time set for the defeat of the Frosh
in all manner of track sports, according to the Track Club, who are still
smarting from the mow handed them
by the Frosh on Oct. 11. They assert
that it was a fluke of the worst kind,
and with suitable weather, records
should be broken right and left.
With the versatile Haddon Agnew
back in shape and fully recovered
from the effects of his bad leg, the
Frosh had better watch out. He will
give Hardley (Frosh) a run for his
money in the 280 yds. low hurdles,
McCammon with his disdus, and shot

prowess also . He will also turn out
for dear old Aima Mammy in the
high jump and pole vault.
The women of this fair University,
whose Track Club was disbanded by
the W.A.A. on account of lack of interest, are in the throes of-agitation
again, and. actually intend entering
some competitors i.i this forthcoming
sprawl, pending assent by the Student's Council. It appears that some
twenty women have asked for representation.
The Frosh, with McCammon ln the

and high jumps, and Jack Harvey in

their Upperclassmen. With their win

North   Sh«re    Team
Displays Brilliance
To Win U-+
Varsity Scrum Hopelessly Outclassed
Against   League
After holding thc North Shore All-
Blacks scoreless for the first half, a
stubborn Varsity English Rugby
squad took a 16-0 trimming on Saturday at Confederation Park.
Thus the North Shore aggregation
continued their winning streak by
overcoming the team that was thought
to be its toughest opposition.
A sloppy field and a heavy slippery
ball made accurate kicking and handling difficult. Under such conditions
the All-Blacks displayed a brand of
rugby that was nothing less than
brilliant. With their scrum working
with the precision of a machine the
threes were quick to take advantage
of every opportunity, time and time
again breaking away on long runs.
The Varsity threes were'nt given a
chance. The scrum heeled the ball
no more than a mere half-dozen
times during the entire match, and
sonsequently the backfield were
forced to play a defensive game
At the kick-off All-Blacks rushed
the play into the student area. Fur
ten minutes th.y tried to cross th
line but lacked the necessary punch
to break through the deadly tackling of their opponents. Varsity finally relieved the situation with a series of kicks to the touch line.
One of the thrills of the game
came when Dav. Pugh picked up a
loose ball and dummied his way
through on the wing. He was brought
down right on the N. Van line and
Varsity were awarded a penalty for
high tackling. Mitchell made a fine
effort to score, the ball falling short
by inches.
The North Shore team" were right
back ancl penned the students in
their own twenty-five. From this
point to the end of the half the All-
Blacks made repeated attacks to cross
the line but were unsuccessful. Leggat, Morris and Brand relieved with
fine kicks but shortly ffter Varsity
were forced to touch down behind
their line to prevent, a scdre.
Just before the whistle blew. Carey tried a penalty Kick for oftsute,
but the kick barely left the ground
The second 'ialf had no sooner
started when Dyer snared a blpcked
ball, kicked by Dalton. to go over
for the first score. Carey converted
to make the score 5-0 in favor of the
Black-Shirts. Shortly after Kinni-
mont secured a pass and ran forty
yards for a touch.
Later Roxborough made an opening for the throes and McVeety ran
thirty-five yafds for a try.
The Blacks continued to apply
pressure. Near the end Kinnimont
and McVcety broke away from centre down the wing with the play
yoing to Kinnimont to McVcety then
back tio i\innimont vvho went over.
Norminpton kicked the difficult convert   to  make  ib» l(i-0.
For the All-Black*; Carey at half
and Roxborough at five-oitjhts played
I'^rt'culai'ly hrndv canres. They were
ably supported h\ Kinnimont, Mercer, and Dyer who played up to
their usual stellar form.

Saturday, October 28th, will
go down in this season's sport
history as "Blue Saturday." Six
Varsity teams took the field,
and of the six, not one was able
to turn in a win for Alma
Perhaps the most disappointing defeat was the 16-0 trimming handed the English Ruggers by the all-conquering
North Shore All-Blacks. A close
second was the 25-26 loss of the
basketballers, especially as it
was the Adanacs who humbled
the hoopmen,
Not so surprising, but no less
disappointing was the 17-3 victory of Meralomas over the
Canadian Gridders. A heartbreaking 1-0 win for Maccabees
over the Soccer eleven rounded
out the list of Senior losses.
The two second string squads
playing were no more successful
than the major teams. TV Second Division ruggers were
trimmed 6-0 by Nanalmo while

Varsity was unfortunate to lose its
game against Maccabees at Kerrisdale Park on Saturday last by a 1-0
Tlie field was in sloppy condition
and neither team could really get
going in thc initial .stanza. Varsity
had a slight edge on the run of the
play, but their efforts were frustrated
by the fine work of the opposing
backs, and the elongated custodian.
Play speeded up greatly in the second half. The players had by this
time become accustomed to the wet
conditions and both teams displayed
nice combination. Despite the fact
that Varsity definitely dominated the
play, Maccabees went ahead when
on one of their comparatively infrequent raids their right-winger put in
a curving shot from about 20 yards
out which Greenwood allowed to
glance off his hands into the net.
From the kick-off Varsity swarmed
into Maccabeeian territory but sizzling shots from McDougal and Martin were spectacularly saved by the
defending custodian. The Students
pressed hard till the end of the game,
and only breaks prevented them
from registering a tally.
Fo. Maccabees the goal-tender and
the right bac* played finely at all
times, while the Students were best

The Adanacs nave retaliated for the
defeat handed to them on Wednesday night last. They succeeded after
a terrific battle, in downing the Varsity squad with u score of _t-25.
The Saturday night gam* wu a
much faster and more Interesting
game than the previous one. After
the starting whistle blew both teams
began to tear around the floor like
mad, but nothing happened for a
few minutes till Mayers opened the
scoring on a foul shot. He managed
to score another point in the same
way a few minutes later and then
roily polly D'Easum opened up to
sink two nice long shots in a row.
Henderson opened the scoring for the
students with a foul shot, but the
Adanacs had a 10 point lead before
the U.B.C. squad tallied with a neld
basket. That started them, but they
were not able to pull out of the hole
and the half ended with the visitors
in the lead 16-10.
The second period started off more
slowly but gathered speed as time
went on. The Blue and Oold boys
were holding their own and even
challenging the Adanacs' lead but
they seemed to be scared. Every
member of the team began to shoot
long shots and as sometimes happens,
the ball refused to go in. The shots
were so close so many times that the
spectators became wildly excited, but
not much more so than the players.
The battle raged back and forth from
one end of the floor to the other but
the Adanacs managed to hold a one
point lead till the final whistle
Lanky Ralph Henderson played a
good game of ball and shared honors
with Bob McDonald for high score.
Three newcomers to the squad, Wiiloughby, McDonald and Henderson,
work well together. All three are
fast and they work the ball consistently up into the enemy territory.
The students did not intercept passes
in their usual style and the veteran
Adanac, Ted McEwen, secured most
of the rebounds under both baskets.

with these applications in a manner
similar to that which we adopt towards our own students in their earlier years. If one of them has examination record with failures and conditions indicating that he is without
doubt a weak student, he is either
strongly advised to withdraw from
the course, or, in extremely bad
cases, actually refused permission to
proceed. Our policy is based in what
we feel to be the wisest procedure
in the interests of the student.

we value each and every contribution highly, our gratitude
alone must suffice, as our appreciation can hardly be expected
to amount to four cents in cash. Contributors, therefore, who
wish to remain anonymous by mailing their contributions, will
greatly oblige the editor by taking pains to remember the post

Dear Children:
I hope you all have a very niee
time on Hallowe'en, but do try to remember that there are limit* to a
good time, and while it is good clean
fun to break windows be careful not
to set fire to any buildings that are
not insured, and though it is great
sport to run over old men and babies
in your motor car, Auntie will knock
your blocks off if you nut ovtr
Auntie. If you are thinking of blowing up buildings, churches and jails
should, according to Hoyle, be excluded, as the men in the jails might get
out and the dumb flatfoots would have
to catch them again. Hera Is a letter
i'rom Paul, one of my favorite nephews, who sends his picture.
If not. here is a helpful suggestion.
Issue invitations three weeks ahead
to your favorite gentleman friend and
to approximately twenty of his lady
friends, for a Hallowe'en party which
vou must intimate will be a wow. Give
the fortunate male your own address
and the ladies that of some sufficiently gloomy vacant house in the sticks.
When they arrive they will find the
house in darkness with a few nice
bright Hallowe'en cats which you have
thoughtfully pasted on the front door.
With these, a wax candle, and a
match, they can have a very jolly
Hallowe'en there together on the front
verandah. A hungry bulldog loosely
tied in the vicinity will probably not
demolish more than three of them,
and will provide great fun for the
rest.. Having thus provived for your
female guests, you will feel justified
in telling your male ditto that the
others have failed to arrive, and can
safely accept when he suggests that
the two of you go places.
Dear Auntie Climacks:
Hallowe'en is my eighteenth birthday, can you make any suggestions
for a party. Last year we played blind
man's bluff and bobbed for apples and
had a very jolly time, but when we
turned out the lights for a spooky
game, everybody disappeared for the
evening. Maybe bobbing for apples
was too rough. Do you think it would
be all right to play postman?

little letter?

About one-fourth of the stUdent body took
the time and the trouble to indicate their preference in the Ubyssey straw vote. Although the
results might not be called conclusive they
give fairly good evidence of the trend of student political thought.
We do not believe, however, that the proportions are altogether correct. They serve
only as the indication of the choice of some
three hundred students. It must not be forgotten that there were about twelve hundred who
were not enough interested to vote. The small
proportion of Sciencemen voting was particularly noticeable.
Another interesting factor was the distribution of votes between the Men's Common Room
and Auditorium. In the Common Room the
Independents were swamped by the C.C.F.
while the Independent vote was surprisingly
strong in the Auditorium. The Liberals, however, led by a large margin in all the polls.
Mr. Butterfield honors the Ubyssey by quoting the opinions of "the earnest boys and girls"
on pacifism. There is some truth in what he
has to say about the subversive influences that
mould opinion immediately war is declared.
However all university students are not as
weak-minded as he would have his readers
believe. As the realization of the foul realities
of war grows upon the youth of the land their
strength to resist the siren call of the propagandists increases.
All those who are really interested in the
truth about this "war game" are advised to
read the recent book by Beverley Nichols entitled "Cry Havoc!" Let us quote a passage.
"Life is not worth living under this shadow of war. The Spring is poisoned, the Summer is made a mockery, the Winter is a dark
time of threatening winds and haunting dreads.
All that is gay and lovely in life is tained. How
can a man think, let alone dream, in this shadow which broods over human life like a monstrous phantom."
If war ever comes again, youth will protest with authority, not as a "still small voice."
It is our right to refuse to make the "unholy
Once again we are only too glad to extend
our thanks to a guest orchestra. The entertainment provided at last Friday's Pep Meeting, by the Ex-Varsity Orchestra, was consistently interesting. The program was suffix
ciently varied to appeal to all who heard it.
We especially commend the interest shown in
the presentation, as the visiting orchestra was
conceived r,nd fostered by the University.
It is an encouraging sign that the high
calibre of some of the music was appreciated
by the audience. We would especially like to
congratulate Mr. Richardson on his rendition
of "Caprice Viennois." It is only rarely that
classical music makes its appearance at Pep
Meetings, and we assure Mr. Richardson, and
the whole orchestra, that the University enjoyed the noon hour concert, and would like
a repetition of it in the near future.
The Women's Athletic Association is trying
desperately to cope with non-support. Attendants at the last meeting straggled in at about
a quarter to one, and left a few minutes later.
It is to be regretted that such little interest is
taken in women's athletics by the women on
the campus. It has not perhaps been made
sufficiently clear to co-eds entering the University, that at least one sport is essential, in
a well-rounded education.   Sports on the cam-
By Arthur Mayse
(Tsa-al, a Haida chief of the North Island,
tells the story)
Now that we're north of The Cape, you can
untie his hands. I've got a use for him up in
Haidaland, and I don't want him to die on
the way. Only if you see him reaching for
the little cedar box amidships there by the
heads, knife him. Southland magic is strong
stuff, and if he once gets his fingers on that
box, we might as well jump overside to the
I learned a lot about Southland magic while
I was a slave at Cowichan.
Considering that I'd accounted for a good
many of his people on one raid or another, my
master treated me very decently. You'd laugh
at me if I tried to pronounce his name; Fisher-
by-night it means in our language. He was
rich as these southerners go, with several
canoes, plenty of gear both for fishing and
war, and three quite passable wives.
Rich, and just a little conceited; he liked to
hear himself talk, and he wasn't always careful as to what he said. Now in the south you
can say just about what you please even to a
tyee, but when you're dealing with a shaman,
it's best to speak him soft and fair.
This old crow here had just come down
from the hills, where it seems he went every
so often to renew his magic. He came down
thin and shaggy, so that he made one think of
a dead man walking; but his eyes were hard
and bright as the sea-agates we pick up on
the beaches of the North Island.
"Look on me," he cried, "and be afraid ! I
have seen the white grouse that only a shaman
may see. I have been far up where the trees
grow small and the stars are close. Be afraid
now, for there is no stronger shaman than I
who walk among you."
The people shrank back and gave him room.
Not so Fisher-by-night, however: short-tempered he was, you see, and forever running
headlong into trouble.
"My child was sick," he said, "and you
could not cure him. While you were sleeping
in the hills came the shaman from Koksilah
with a cure. So I look on you, and am not
No word from the shaman of Cowichan.
But that night he stalked into the rancherie,
thin and tall in the shadows. He shook his
rattle in one hand, while the little demons inside it talked softly. In the other hand he held
the cedar box, the one here in the canoe with
He set the box between his feet and stood,
eyes on Fisher-by-night, muttering to himself,
over and over the same: "Soul," he whispered,
"soul, come out and into my box !"
My master sat as one in a trance, unstir-
ring. Sweat stood out on his forhead, and his
gaze was on the box of cedar between the shaman's feet. Then the rattling stopped and the
muttering stopped, and in the hush that followed we heard a faint scratching, as of some
small, prisoned animal.
It came from the box !
The shaman whirled cackling into the dark.
Fisher-by-night sat very still, and the women
lifted their voices in a wail.
There was a rat in the nettles outside the
rancherie the next morning. A big rat, bending the nettle-stalks this way and that as it
scurried about. It must have been either sick
or crazy, or it would certainly have run away
when the children came up from the beach.
The shaman came, too, with the box, empty
now, under his arm.
"See," he called. "Oh, the large rat! Who
will spear it for me ? I have a bow, a fine sea-
otter bow, for the lad that kills it."
They were after it on the instant, of course.
It was one of Fi3her-by-night's own children
who finally ran it down. He stabbed at it with
his short flounder-prod - - - and, as if this were
a signal, one high, agonized scream rang from
the dark interior of the rancherie.
Fisher-by-night was dead, quite dead, when
we reached him.
Then, before we could realize just what
had happened, the canoes swept around the
point, and the killing was on. And here am I,
a Long-Knife and a free man again, cruising
home to the north with as many heads and
slaves as anyone could wish for.
What am I going to do with the shaman ?
Use him for my new house: I'd like to see
how much his Southland magic helps him a

Third and Fourth year men students

Chips, fried fish, milk bottics, pies,
sausages spread in glorious profusion
along the caf counter. That is a sight
familiar to every student. Very few
students however, have penetrated
the original home of all these "eats,"

Chips To Be
A huge coal stove about eleven feet
long is the itrst thing that strikes
thc eye. On it reposing in a huge
sieve-like erection are the old familiar chips being deep fried. Near
them are some fish in a pan about
two feet in diameter. There are three
ovens in this stove as well as a long
cupboard on top where rolls and
joints are kept warm.
Next to the stove is a large boiler
which harbors a most delectable odor.
It is used to turn stock bones into
five cent bowls of coup. On the
other side of the stove is a machine
about the size of an ordinary refrigerator, three feet by five and a half
which is used solely for steaming potatoes.
The heat in this area is something
terrible and it is a relief to go to the
opposite end of the large kitchen
where the refrigerajprs are. It it an
ammonia refrigerator the size of a
very small office. It is divided into
two compartments each with a separate  door,  one  for meat   and   the

well portrayed and in the discussion
that followed many questions were
satisfactorily answered.

Oh, Those Pies!
In the middle of the room is a gas
stove which is used for pies.   On the
top lie seven perfect examples of its-
art. ,
Technocracy !
Near it are three more interesting
machines,   a   potato   peeler,   a  small
machine for cutting chips and a large
mechanical cake mixer.   The sort of
kitchen to make any housewife green
with envy and her husband pale with
fear  at the spectre of more  installments.
All the work however is not done
by machine. Mashing turnips for instance is a man sized job. Yoa put
a large pot filled with vegetables on
the floor and grip firmly with the
feet. Then seize the masher and perform a sort of pump motion for about
fifteen minutes, by that time the turnips are ready to eat and the masher
is ready to give up the ghost, at least
your explorer would be.
Dishes and Dishes
As for the dish washing! In the
kitchen there are three tubs but these
are only for pans. For the real dishwashing there is a separate room. A
double row of tubs, a ceiling hung
with dish clothes, stacks of glasses,
knives, milk bottles, soup bowls,
cups; a -regular nightmare!
It takes the girls in the kitchen all
afternoon to wash up after lunch, besides that there is the sweeping and
cleaning in the c.f which is a three
hour job.
