MASEFIELD'S WORKS
ARE DISCUSSED
The second meeting of tbe Letters
Club was held on Wednesday, the
19th, at the home of Dr. and Mrs.
Walker.
"John Maaefleld and hla queat for
Beauty" was the subject of the paper,
and waa treated at some length by
Mlas Alice Weaver. Her wide reading
In the poet enabled her to touoh
nearly every phase of his works. The
plots of the narrative poems were outlined with many Illustrative quotations. But lt was Masefleld's love of
the Boa, and his distinctive ability to
find beauty even "in the gutter" that
really interested Miss Weaver. She
also showed a great appreciation for
the rough and ready characters amid
the tragedies that brought out their
real worth. "The Widow In the Bye
Street" waa taken at Maaefield's moat
lifelike oreation. To aum up the
poets' general style and his strong
craving after art, "Dauber" was used
as being typical of the author, and of
the man who has fought hi* way up
from the lowest strata of society.
The discussion that followed was
not as lively na that of the flrat meeting. It. la unfortunate that aa Mase-
fleld seems to rouse such keen feelings or admiration or disparagement,
there did not seem to be a common
aubject for dlsousslon. However, this
wss offset by the excellent summary
and appreciation of the poet that had
been given in the paper.
Brilliant Speeches
Heard in Parliament
A return to the old style initiation
and the institution ot award* to mem-
bars of the executives were the topics
under dissection at the meeting of the
Student*' Parliament held oa Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Underbill member trom Union
Bay, on moving: "fieaoived that thla
Houae do go on record aa approving
a return to the old-faahioaed Initiation of 1981 and 1911" aufgeated the
application of paint to the physlog-
onoml** of Freshmen.  As this Would
speaker auggeated  the  wearing
long skirts.
Theae proposals were heartily rid*
lculed by the Hon. Denis Murphy, in
a short but brilliant apeecb whioh
concluded with the famoua quotation
from Julluo Oaeaar whioh end*,
"Oh, Juatlo* thou art fled to brutish
beeete,
And men havo lost their reason!"
Tbe Leader of the Opposition kept
up the Shakespearean manner ot
polite repartee, by terming the speech
of th* Premier aa being,
"Like a tale told by an Idiot,
Full of sounds and fury, signifying
nothing."
Following on this thunderbolt the
Hon. gentleman then moved that
either pin or block rewards should
be given to tho executives of major
student organisations, In return for
their often painstaking work ln connection with those offices. The general opinion of the houso. however,
was that the glory of office and the
thought of a deed well done was
enough reward, and the motion was
consequently* negatived.
Several new members registered to
receive constituencies which have
now been assigned. Women are ex
pected to apply for constituencies at
or before the next sitting of the
House.
Members desiring to move resolutions will much facilitate the business
of the House by handing in such bills
or resolutions to either the Speaker
or the Deputy Speaker, by Tuesday
of eaoh week.
Advice Regarding
Health of Students
Freedom from Communicable Diseases amongst the student body may
be attained only through the co-operation of every student. Every case
of Communicable Disease springs,
directly or indirectly, from a previous case of the same Disease; therefore, it la easential that svory atudent
Buffering from Communicable Disease
or who has been In contact with one
suffering from such a Disease should
take every known precaution to
prevent the spread of Infection to
other students,
With this end in view, students are
asked to make reports requested below to the Medical Health Officer of
the Campus, Department of Nursing
and Health, Science (Chemistry and
Physics) Building.

occurs In your home cr in the house

DOROTHY BROWN IS ILL
Many students of this University
will be sorry to bear that Miss
Dorothy Brown, a '27 graduate, is
very ill. Dorothy left two weeks ago
to take a position ln the Bacteriological Department of the Board of
Health at Winnipeg. Soon after her
arrival she took typhoid fever, and at
present her condition Is serious.
Dorothy was one of our foremost
students, and her many friends here!

Into ahape and following Wednoe-
day'* strenuoua practice, when over
three men were laid out, coupled with
the Individual running each player la
doing on bis own, will place the odd*
in Science'* favor.
It is rumored that "Gunboat" Sparks
is getting a new pair of pants since
his old ones are in a bad stage of disrepair. "Blondy Gus" Oustafson, the
iron man, Is doing well this season
and much is expected of him. The
rest of the players seem to be very
fit and are all keen on winning.
Contrary to the usual dope we are
not crying for student support since
we always get lt but If you would like
to see a good game bring your sidekick down to the Point Saturday and
cheer the boys on. Activities start

there are a good bunch ot them, are
fast coming up to par and that they

Vancouver and th* general opinion
wa* that they were no match for our
own local talent. However, the Alberta squad seem to be determined
to win and since all indications point
toward a good battle, tbe home-coming feature should be filled with many
thrills. Don't forget the date, Nov.

LeS.De Consider
Club Applications
At the weekly meeting ot the L,
S. D„ on Monday, October 17th, business of much Importance waa conducted.
Letters of application for membership to the organisation, from two
clubs,—the Philosophy and the Chess
Clubs,—were considered. That of the
Philosophy Club was accepted. It
was decided, however, that for the
present, the Chess Club be not accorded full membership, but be put
on probation till tbe flrst ot January,
1988, when the application would be
further considered, Mr. Taylor, Preeldent of the L. 8. D., pointed out that
It ahould be the policy of the Depart*
meat to admit to membership only
thoae cluba which could ahow substantial evidence of their stability
As the stabton*** of the Cheaa Club
Is, aa yet, uncertain It waa judged
best to place It flrst on probation, for
th* stated term.
At the meeting, O. Roland waa appointed Debates-Manager, aad Phfi.
Elliot waa appointed Vloe-Prealdeat
of the L. 8. D. executive.
The queation of budgets for the varloua clubs, afforded muoh lively discussion; and the following budgets
were accepted for recommendation to
the Student*' Council.
Sooial Science Olub f   7.00

It was deemed unnecessary to
appropriate any funds for th* Letters
Club. It was recommended that th*
budget of the Biology Discussion Glnb
b* reduced to four dollars. Thai
latter matter, however, waa toft to
abeyance till next meeting, when P.

AFTER THE CONVENTION
If the Press Conference did nothing else for us it caused us to
eompare our polioy and reaulta with those of other papers. The contusions of this comparison?  On many noints we prefer to
»n uaaorutable attitude.   One, however, haa impreeaed us
'Ir da^toAQd expression.
From the discuaalon in the buainess aesaiona we learned that these
editors receive a continual and definite response from their various
student bodies, at oo* time praise, at others strong disapproval. Now
fe grant that it may possibly be our own fault that we receive no
definite response. At the same time we have to agree that there ia no
disapproval expressed. If it is the result of our own dead attitude at
least we might expect some critlclem. If you don't like the subject
of our editorial column, if you disapprove of the front page makeup, or are shocked by the feature page, if you deem the sport page
even a "total loss," say so. We shall either defend ourselves or
try to mend our ways.
Another thing whioh it might interest aome students to know.
The correspondence column ia the means by which every student
dan and ought to make known his Ideas about student government
of wtivities to every other member of the Alma Mater- It ia the
>lio Forum for students. Anyone who wishes en ides to reaoh
lent body ia st perfect liberty to use the Ubyssey as his
of expression, we solicit your support in making the paper
true organ of student opinion.
CHRONIC GROUCHERS
We have among us and always will have, we suppose, some
SNile gronohere who sit with folded hands—metaphorically apeak-
m Qotnplain loudly about everything. Not that there is no
for diaaetiafeotion. There are many things about this Uni-
- that ere far from perfect aa ia the case with evory other
tion. But the people who complain are those1 who do nothing
to improve conditions.
The Orlll provides a prominent illustration of this fact. Admittedly the service is poor. But whose is the blame 9 It is ours
and we should admit it. Every day people reserve chairs, sometimes a whole table and aside from the fact that this is a decidedly
unfair practice it simply demoralizes tbe service.
Another hindrance to efficiency is the faot that many people
forget or deliberately neglect to return their treys to the table provided. This delays the staff and consequently slows up tbe service.
Many, too, leave untidy tables a practice aa discourteous as it is
inconsiderate. If students would remember these points soon there
would be no more complaints about the Grill
In an effort to deal with the problem of crowding, the Students'
Council laat night, passed a regulation reserving the tables on the
north and east side for men only, the rest for men und women. This
will insure that the men receive a little more of their share of room
in the Cafeteria for at present the women thoughtlessly or selfishly
use up most of the places and the men are crowded out. Now thia
condition is to be remedied with, we hope, the result that service in
the Cafeteria will be greatly accelerated.
TEMPUS FUGIT
Those discerning people who chanced to glance at a calendar
this morning would notice that seven weeks to-day is the 9th of
December—In other worda the last day of lectures. Freshmen may
now profit by the experience of upper year students and be warned
that it will be useless to begin studying in four weeks time and still
expect either to obtain good marks or in many cases to pass at all.
Students persistently disregard such warnings. They imitate
the idle habits of some fortunate senior who haa a happy faculty of
passing examinations with very little work. They rarely study and
as S result either fail completely or pass with extremely low marks.
It is at this time of year when the Freshman is keenly interested
in various activities and when the social life of the University is
coming to ita height, that work remains undone. The remedy is not
aa unpleasant aa it would seem at first. A little more studying instead of useless fifteen minute conversation at odd times would
prevent the hopeless confusion of unprepared work and yet would
permit of some free evenings during the week.
University courses are very much broader than those of High
Schools and it is for this reason that new students so often fail when
left on their own responsibility. Those who wish to derive real benefit from their courses will do well to draw up timetables of preparation hours. It ia a good method for getting through assignments,
for having more recreation hours and above all for passing examinations creditably.

look around and prove that they are

may be making themselves Into a

Take the recent case of the Chess
Club, for example. With smug oompieo*
enoy the Literary and Bcleatlfia Bx*
•outlve charitably gave this Club
•'tomperary recognition" until they
(the L. fl. 0.) are eaaured of Ita per-
maueaoo. Then perbapa, If the Obeae
Olub behaves Itself, does aot dlaaolve
Into thin amoke or degenerate Into a
ping-pong sooiety, the L. 8. D. will

All thla comet after the faot that the
Cheaa Club aaked for recognition
laat year, waa refused on account of
(to "non-permanence" and—In aplte
ot the L. 8, 0.—became one of tha
moat thriving organisations on the
campua.

already competed With the Vancouver Club. It la entirely telf-support-

Bdltor,
The ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
Due to the recent agitation for the
furnishing of the Men's Upper Common Room In the Arts Building, we
thought it advisable to offer this suggestion to the student body previous
to any action being taken.
All Arts' Men realise that the accommodation offered in the two Men's
Common Rooms is not sufficient for
the vast numbers (Aggies, Science and
Arts) that congregate there at noon
particularly.
On examination we find that the
basement of the Arts' Building would
make un excellent locker room. If
the lockers were transferred from the
Locker Room to the basement we
would have not only, room for more
lockers, which we sadly need, but an
additional Common Room.
Yours truly,
Arthur F. Burch, '30.

SILENT NIGHT
I have alwaya bad a great fear of
ghost*. Perbapa 1 ought to say that
I have never seen ene-eo far.
Nevertheless the feet remains that
whenever I am left alone to a houee,
I invariably have th* feeling that
around ma are invisible shapes, toft,
allent and watehing.
How the curious thing ta that aa
long af there are people to ihe bouse,
the idea of ghoste It completely ab**nt
from my mind, but whan tbe people
depart, and th* houae la empty, the
fear begin* tlowly to awgfVtflfirjts.
It happened io the Other night. When
my father and mother aMonnced that
they were going to the movlet, and
asked If I would mind remaining alone,
I anawered without a thought, ^Not
In the leastI" But when I had otoaed
the front door upon them, and walked
baok through the empty rooms, I
knew I should never have let them go.
Everything was perfectly silent
There waa not even a nejeurksg
orackle from the kitchen stove. I had
never noticed before What a lot of
doors there Were In the kitchen, seven
or eight at least it aeemed, and some
ot them open. These I hastily etoeed,
for there la Bomethlng about an open
door that I dont like, it haa a sinister
yawning look, aad anything may
materialise put of it. I decided to do
my evening work lu the dining room,
where there were fewer doors. Here,
however, there ware three. I man*
ouvred about for a position at the
table where I could, out of the Corner
of ray eye, see all three at once. It
was difficult, but at last I got nf
chair into the exact position, and settled down to read.
The quiet grew deeper atill. Thlnga
seemed to live to IL Uvea the inan
Imate door In front of me became

slowly, at the touch of an Invisible
hand, the door opened. The narrow
slit of blaok widened, and out of tbe
darkness of the other room a horrible
shape grew and grew till it filled the
doorway with its slimy white presence. My flesh began to prickle, and
I pulled myself up with a Jerk, This
would never do. Then a brilliant Idea
a truck me—the dog. He was a big
Iriah water spaniel with a deep bark,
and he should come up out of the
basement to protect me. I had read
that dogs are very susceptible to the
presgnce of spirits, and will stand up
and bark, with hair bristling, if any
thing is wrong. I opened the basement door and called. He came up
and after sniffing around for a few
minutes, lay down on the carpet with
his nose on his paws.   I felt better.
I had read for half-an-hour or so,

Although the Hand-book la beUeved

On leaving th* publication* offloe
the unintelligent visitor deeeehds the
staira to the Orlll, or aa it li called
in th* language of the natives, the
Cafeteria, Here, fer thirty eeata one
may obtain the beat twenty-flve cent
lunch In British Colembie.
The room ia built to seat alx hundred people, but It aooemmodatea
twelve hundred during lunch hoars.
Ita purpose, ae dulgned by high
authorities, is to provide a place
where atudenta oan held plcniea to
the approved way, namely by bringing their own louchea, eating them,
and finally atrewlng papers and crusts
all ever the adjacent surroundings.
Occasionally a few atudenta buy feed
there too.
There ere various aepeeta of thla
Institution that can he observed at
different tlmea during tbe day. Per
example, at 8.80 a.m. one can generally
observe the oorpee of a freshmen who
asked for a oup of coffee. X marks
the spot where body waa found.
Between 8.80 and J1.S0 the room ia
taken over by the Cheaa Olub and the
various campus scandal societies.
There la alto the usual rush of students—called |n the vernaeular, "Oaf*

yeay by Ml** Sproule. Arts '10, in

The food served at tbe Cafeteria
baa long won recognition by the
"Ubyaapy.'* The %. 0. D. la pow
thinking of Hutting it on probation
until Christmas, although erery intelligent person know* that it's permanence to aasured.
The Biology and Ohemtotry Societies are Intending to hold their meeting |n the Grill in order to continue
their research. Two problems have
to be looked Into by the more brilliant mlnda of those organisations,
namely:
(1) How the salt got into the sugar
shaker, and;
(2) How the saltpetre and chicory
found its way into the coffee.
There la no truth whatever ln the
report that Swan, the brilliant artist
who draws "Salesman Sam," visited
the Cafeteria for inspiration.
As well as the Orlll proper there is
an annex reserved for the faculty and
the 8. C. M., where they can get away
from the common herd, and bold Intelligent discussions. The fundamentalists alao intend to secure a separate
room where tbey will not lose their
appetites by observing stray "Ubys-
seys" on tbe tablea.
From 2 to 6 p.m. the room la full
of the youth and beauty of the Unlveralty. Thla ia the time when tbe
genial college Idiot* take the equally
genial and Idiotic freshettes down to
tea and spend the time In small
talk. By their antics even the Fundamentalists are forced to agree with
evolution, although there is apparently
not much of it here.
Behind the dining hall i* the kitchen, but here we will draw a charitable curtain on the painful scene.
Leaving the Cafeteria we now make
our way to tbe Men's Common Room.

Laat year Varaity put Up a game
flgltJagalnst the Young Liberal Canucks for the championship ot B. 0.,
but loot Out through tbe lack of com*
blned toam work,
Credit leat year waa given to the
girl who made the baaket, aad not for
the awlft or clever peae whioh an*
abled a player nearer the baaket to
put It to.
The glrla now playing on the A
team were all atar players oa other
teama. Everyone knows what they
oaa do, ao it la aot aeoeaaary for
anyone to try to ahlne. Individual
play makea poor team-work, and
weekena an otherwise good team.

middle ot the week, and the final one
on New Years day. Varaity will secure one of these games aa usual.

a little over a hundred years. They
follow the English code to the Mart*
time Provinces and the class ot play
of both local and eastern teama will
easily be determined after Xmaa.
Dalhousle Alumni have guaranteed to
make up any deficit Incurred on the
trip.
CHANQK IN OFP8IDB RULE
Following thla week's meeting ot
the Rugby Union lt waa deolded to
do away with the imaginary line at
the scrum ln the throw In and the
half may onoo more circle tbe forwards after the pill, providing he has
one foot behind the ball. This rule
is in effect ln other countries and,
though its result may be to smother
a lot of fast plays, It is to be used
here.
The Arts team is not playing Saturday and as a result all players are
requested to turn out on our own field
at 12,16 for a good work-out.
GOLF
Monday at 12.30 ln Room Arts 104

Invited to attend. Officers will be
elected. Tournament and team matches will be discussed. Everyone come
and bring your friends.
Stars Advance in
Tennis Tbuirney
In spite of adverse weather conditions, the tennis tournament Is progressing steadily. Much good tennis
is being displayed this year, both
among men and women; and the flnala
should produce some interesting play.
F. Gordon and T. Berto entertained
Interested fans, on Wedneaday, with
one of the hardest fought battles of
the tournament Berto waa vlotor,
the acore being, 8-8, 4*8, 84.
In the mixed doubles, Miss Garlow
and Shields seem to be slashing their
way through to victory. Wodneeday
witnessed their victory over Miaa D.
Strauss and Yolland.
Welley Mayera la still a atrong favorite for the men's alnglea orown.
Should the weather man favor ua
with a reasonable proportion of good
weather, the flnala will not be far*
distant; aad Judging by reports from,
"those who know," it will be worth
while missing a few lectures to see
them.
WOMEN'S ut.
It to hoped that aU the women to
the Uaiveraity have aeea the notice
announcing the flrat meeting of the
Women'a Literary Sooiety on Monday, October 14, in Arta 100, at 8 pjb,,
and thai they wttl all turn out. Laat
year the Women'a Literary Society
waa not the success that it might have
been. It got away to a good start,
but after tbe flrat two or three meet-
toga, intereet flagged. Thla year
better thlnga are expaotod, especially
aa the Women'a Literary floelety plana
to co-operate to a large extent with
the Men's Literary society and the
Student Parliament Thla flrat meeting will be to settle the policy for the
