Other Canadian universities and
especially thoae of the prairie provinces are extremely willing to cooperate with the U.B.C. ln ell fields
of inter-colleglate competition, states
Douglas Macdonald, local delegate to
the annual conference of the National
Federation of Canadian University
StudentH held ln Montreal during the
early part of this month.
The Prairie universities are willing
to share generously ln the costs of
exchanging teams especially those of
boxing, Canadian rugby and swimming,
Mr. Macdonald makes three recommendations in hla official report to
Council. He advocates the charging of
a blanket fee covering admission to
all student activities and levied at the
beginning of the session from ail students, aa practised at McOlll, Toronto
and Queen's. He also supports the
compensation scheme aa at present
carried out at the University ot Saskatchewan under which all students
are Insured up to $160 against sickness, operations and injuries on the
payment of a small fee. Lastly he
recommends the establishment of a
Student Employment Bureau modeled
after that at Queen's University.

his short visit in Vancouver this

Hopkins has very kindly consented to

The choice of subject for this Informal talk has been left to the speaker, but whatever the subject may be,

Mr. WMiams For Fettrth
Year Leads Musicians
The Musical Society again starts its
year's activities under the able baton
of C. Haydn Williams, to the joy of
his numerous admirers In the University. Mr. Williams has been with
the Musical Society for the past tour
years and during his regime as conductor has proven his worth by such
productions as the excerpts trom II
Trovatore, 'Mikado, Madame Butter*
fly, Martha, etc. Last spring at the
close of the University session lt was
feared that Mr. Williams would be unable to take the conductorshlp for
this season because of the extremely
heavy dutiea of that office. Fortunately arrangements have been made
which have permitted him to return.
The flrst event of interest In this
year's program will be a noon-hour
recital which will probably be given
next Thursday.
The recitals of last year mat with
great success and support from the
student body. As no charges or collections are made at these recitals they
are made possible only by the kindness of the assisting artists who are
the best procurable ln Vancouver.
It will be the endeavour this year
to have our own University talent appearing in these recitals as well as
outside talent. Private tryouts will be
held for new and old members aa
soon as enough applications have been
received. An application blank will be
found In this Issue ot the Ubyssey and
forma may also be had at stage room
No. 207 any noon-hour.
Students wishing to Join the Society
ahould make application as soon as
possible so that the tryouts can start.
It Is proposed that at the Spring
performance a light operetta shall be
produced. This will provide a splendid
chance to display any outstanding talent. It is possible that if such a program is carried out a student stage
producer will be appointed. ft"     -**

We regret to bring to the notice of the University the death
last month of Miss Woodworth of the Library staff. Since 1920
she wss at ths reference desk, and there were few members of
the Ltbrtry staff more in touch with the students ss a whole.
From the Old days at Fairview to the present at Point Orey she
wss always on the spot with advice and help with books and
everything else oonnected with the Library.
Miss Woodworth possessed more than average librarian's
Intimacy with the subject matter of books. She could tell one
what to read on most subjects in a most helpful way, and she
wag always willing to give her pergonal attention to settle any
dlffiouity, more often than not Illuminating the matter with her
own knowledge.
She will be a loss to the University as a friend of the students, as well as from her connection with their Intellectual life.
She was personally interested In the affairs of all the students
whom she watched through the four years. It was to her, as a
friend, graduates applied for assistance in their work. She
seemed a permanent part of the University. She was missed
When she was away through illness most of last year, and the
Library does not seem quite the same without her.     ,
In converting the men's upper common room into offices for
new professors, in our opinion, the Faculty, or whoever ls responsible, lias acted in a very high-handed and inconsiderate way.
The excuse seems to be that the facilities are not sufficient to
meet the growth Of the professional staff and the older offices are
overcrowded. Yet, this year with an enrollment as great as last
session, the Arts men are expected to be content with half as
much room for recreation as formerly. Last year there were 849
male students taking Arts, They had two common rooms, measuring approximately 30 J; 20 feet.
We feel that the Faoulty has taken the line of least resistance. With the student body, as well as the professors, feeling the
discomfort of inadequate quarters, the only remedy must come
from the government In the form of construction of new buildings. But the help from that source seems remote, and consequently the old game of "passing the buck" has begun. Why
should the faculty worry when they can transfer their troubles
to the students, who are apparently powerless to resist? And at
the present rate of growth, it will only be a year or two before
the overcrowding among the professors will again appear, and
then envious eyes will be cast on the Lower Common Room. But
such conjecture savors of Malthus.
Some may suggest that with the new gymnasium the atudenta will not need the Upper Common Room. Even if we disregard the homeless chess club, this argument has little weight.
The gymnasium was planned and financed when the two common
rooms were considered inadequate and in any case was built for
a different purpose. The idea contained in this argument is the
same as that underlying the system of "rack rents,"—the victim
suffers for his own initiative and industry.
The student body is said to have student "self-government,"
but the field of self-government is narrow. In matters such as
this the students—for whose benefit the University was founded
and who pay annual fees for the benefit received—have to take
whatever is thrown them and accept it with gratitude.
One of the assets of the older universities is to have graduates
among the outstanding men in the public eye. The influence of
these famous grads. is invaluable in its effect on the prestige and
"esprit de corps" of the university. Heretofore, tha University
of British Columbia, a mere infant among Institutions of learning, while producing a number of brilliant students and successful business men, has been unable to claim as its own any man
of national Importance in the public eye.
Consequently, the appointment of Dr. Hugh Keenleyside to
the position of "charge d'affaires" to the Canadian legation in
Toklo may be looked upon as the beginning of a new period in
the history of this university.
Dr. Keenleyside graduated from the U.B.C, took his Ph.D.
at Clark University and for some time waa lecturer in the History
Department here. Two years ago he went to Toronto where he
held an important position with a publishing company until his
present appointment to Japan.
The success of Dr. Keenleyside demonstrates clearly that the
time is now at hand when the foster-children of the U.B.C. will
be winning honor both for themselves and their Alma Mater in
all aspects of Canadian life.

In tbe September number of tho
American Forum there is an article
by one, Hamilton Holt, called 'An Adventure In old-fangled education." In
it he says very many,things, all of
which contribute to his belief in the
Iiroper method ot conducting classes
a a University, but, (though the
truths In it are legion) one ponders
tor a moment on the following remark; "When I left college (he
writes) and entered my professional
career as a magaslne editor, I was
profoundly Impressed to find that my
colleagues la the editorial room, who
never thought ot teaching me anything, taught me everything*, while
my professors at the university, who
were paid to teach me, had taught
me almost nothing. Tet my fellow
workers In journalism and my professors ln college were the same type
of men—that is, the members of each
group were older, abler, and nobler
than myself i they were specialists
ln thelt own fields as I was not; they
were leading the intellectual life on
a high moral plane. , . . ."

You were all summer getting your
