Light Varsity Line Stood Mauling of
Heavy V.A.C. Gridders
VARSITY Senior Canadian Rugby team got away to a good start in the
Lip ton Cup Series when it defeated V.A.C, last years champions, on
Saturday by a meagre 2 points.   The score was 3-1.   It was a fairly
evenly fought game with V.A.C. dominating the play in tho flrst half and
Varsity having command in the second.    Both teams were dangerous at
times but both lines rose to the occasion and smeared end-runs and bucks

the sphere rolled to the deadline. The
Clubbers continued to press and were

Duncan opened the second quarter
by taking a twenty-five yard forward
pass from  Chodat and the students
made their flrst point when a V.A.C.
man was rouged.
In the second half Varsity ran a
series of end runs with Bolton and
Steele running wings around the V. A.
C. line. Varsity scored its other
points when the ball was kicked behind the V.A.C. line and one of their
backs was tackled while attempting
to run the oval out. This half was
all Varsity's who were staging a

of eight yards and up.

Election of officers and of tbe Varsity representative for the coming
debate with the British team occupied
the attention of the Debating Union
at its first meeting of the year on
Friday afternoon.
Sidney Semple was, subject to his
acceptance, elected president; Milton
Owen, vice-president; Archie Dick,
manager of inter-class debates; and
Jack Sargent, secretary
Milton Owen, as chairman, requested that James Dunn and Dick
Yarborough give the speeches which
they had prepared for the tryouts for
the Varsity team, but which had been
rendered unnecessary by their election by acclamation.
The meeting was then thrown open
for discussion either on the subject
of the British Debate or on matters
of general interest to the society.
Francis McKenzie, president of the
L.S.E., discussed frankly the attitude
of the executive to the Union, voicing
a hope that the club would this year
become one of the leading organizations of the University.
On motion of Earl Vance the
society voted unanimously that meetings be held every aecond Wednesday
afternoon when two members of the
club should debate on any subject
which they might choose; the same

Costain, Freshman centre forward, the
Varsity Senior Soccerites handed the
leagu. leading B. C. Telephones their
first league defeat since last October, to
the tune of 2 goals to ), Saturday at
McBride Park.
Varsity had to fight hard for its victory
and when Todd was enrriod off with a
twisted ankle after Ave minutes play, it
looked as if the students would be snowed
under. Costain took a good centre by
B. Wright first time to register the
initial count, but from then ou until
half time only Roberts and Chalmers,
plus a wre-ith of horse shoes around the
goal posts, saved the Cold and Blue dud
squad. The 'Phones equulized from two
yards range while McCiregor and Chalmers were entwined about each other on
the line; but despite a terrific bombardment, could not add to their account.
Half time arrived with a tired Varsity
squad fortunate to be on level terms.
After Ihe oranges Todd relumed and
changed places with Cooke. Varsity
took the game in hand, and after pressure Costain sent manager Tommy Sanderson ami bis cohorts on the sidelines
into ecstacies by netting what proved to
be the winning goal, with a pretty shot
from a difficult angle. Tbe "Hello"

Track Athletes
In Strong Form
That try-outs for the team which

Intercollegiate Track meet at Edmonton on October 11, should be held on
Monday, October 6, was decided at

enabled Rowing Club to break even
in the opening Miller Cup game at
Brockton Point Saturday. The final
score stood 11 all.
Both teams started at top speed
and the play swung from one end of
the arena to the other. For the flrst
fifteen minutes the Varsity stalwarts
were more enthusiastic than skllfull.
The threes were uncertain and the
scrum was not packing well. However, under Capt. Barratt's hoarse
and pointed admonitions, the Blue
and Oold brigade tightened up and
played stellar rugby. Rowing Club
outweighed Varsity but lacked combination. Most of the Red and White
gains were made in dribbling rushes
by forwards, individual runs, notably
by Leroy, and long kicks by Under

while the prowess of Ledingham and
Alpen as weight and javelin experts
is well known.
A letter from the local Y.M.C.A.
suggesting an indoor track meet, between Varsity and that institution, I
was discussed ut the meeting and it
,f t|l(, | was decided to enter the meet on an
invitation basin,,In order thai it might

the "Y," the date of the Arts '.!() Road
Race was advanced from November
5 to October 28. A feature of the affair is to be a long distance race of
three or four miles with teams from
each institution competing.
Officers of the Track Club elected
at the meeting were Leo Gananer,
president, and George Grant, secretary-treasurer.
Phil Barratt and Estabrook pulled
off a spectacular run early In the flrst
half, but could not break through.
Martin made a long gain on a dribble
but was halted.
Improve Since Last Game
The U.B.C. threes showed a vast
improvement since the
Japanese game, but
usually did not draw
their opponents before
passing, so that the
wing threes were always well marked.
Ellis, at five-eighths
showed up well, taking

but clinging to the ball
too long.   The forwards played a 3-
2-,'! scrum, as in the last gan.e, and
got the ball away to their backs twice
as often as Rowing Club.   After the
flrst twenty minutes, their heeling in
the loose scrum was the best displayed
by a local team In years.
Rowing Club scored first on a clever
play. Gaining the ball in a scrum on
the U.B.C. two-bit line, the Club halfback faked a pass to hia five-eights
and then sent the ball around the
blind aide of the scrum to the wing
three-quarter who went over. The
try was not improved.
Phil and Rett Barratt carried the
ball 40 yards but the defense held.
Several U.B.C. three-quarter runs
were made futile by wild passing', and
valuable ground wan lost on an offside. Ten minutes before half time,
the Varsity pack equalized, Ledingham dribbling through the defense
and passing, soccer-fashion, to Murray who scooped up the ball and
scored. The place kick was wide.
Score 3 all.
Rowers Take Aggressive
After the interval Rowing Club
took the aggressive. Hard tackling
by the college backs held off the rush.
A. Pinkham almost crossed the Varsity line but was bundled out at the
flag. The Blue and Gold team asserted itself and showed championship form. Gaul dodged through to
make a good opening but the chance
was lost when Estabrook passed wildly and
the ball went into touch
five yards from the
Club line. A quick
throw-in gave the ball
to Ledingham, and the
man-mountain took two
steps and a jump and
made the score (l-.'l.

To Leaven World
"There is a groat movement ou foot
today for the Engineers to rule the
world," according to Mr. E. A, Wheat-
ley, secretury of the Association of Professional Engineers of B. C, in his address to Soieneemon, Wednesday noon,
The election of Mr. Hoover to the presidency epitomized tbe tendency of
modern Western civilizations to rely
more and moro on the specialised training of Science to All its gubernatorial
offices, rather than tbe business man and
tbe financier. /
The tendency of the,Cultural world to
resist this modern evolution in its denunciation of tbe /-tereotyped life of
modorn induBtrialblution was deprecated.
Engineers are accused of mechanizing
the world to its detriment, he stated.
The Scionco men are even accused of
standardizing girls faces, added the
8|K)uker, to ciiii\_n bis comments.
These assertions, Mr. Wheatley continued, could bo easily refuted, but a
more serious accusation was that Science
men were devoid of moral and social responsibility. This he hastened to state
was untrue but it could only be refuted
by Science men themselves taking a
greater interest in social and economic
affairs. This would prove of advantage
in later life should they assume tbe responsibility of government. Five thousand members in the Engineering Institute of Canada, he concluded, pointed
to tbe virility of the society and tbe advantages which came from its membership.

the running of the gauntlet. Each
novice was ollndfolded, ushered forth,
and started on hia way down the
long lines of Sophomores.
Many things happened on this hectic
journey. There was smearing of acids
and oils, daubing of kalsomine, rubbing of hair with plaster of paris. and
wreaking of crude tonsorial effects.
All these processes were accompanied
by much swatting with paddles.
"Worms!" muttered the Sophomores
as they fed their victims spaghetti

of the many horrible ordeals that
were devised.

It is good news that the Track Club is going to send a team
to Edmonton. Not for four years has there been competition in
these sports with the other Western Canadian universities, and
yet Track is a major sport. Last year plans were advanced for
inter-collegiate meets covering a period of years, but in the past
few weeks it looked as though nothing would be done this fall
as far as U.B.C. was concerned. This was due to the fact that
economic conditions on the prairies made impossible a guarantee
of a share in gat. receipts or of any financial help. However,
the Students' Council decided last night that a team will nevertheless be sent.
This Friday night there is to be an executive meeting of
the Western Intercollegiate Amateur Athletic Association in
Edmonton to make arrangements for competition during the
next three years, and a member of the Track team will be there
to represent the University of British Columbia. On Saturday
the meet between the four western universities will be held.
Most of British Columbia's experienced track men are available,
there are a number of promising Freshmen, and try-outs have
been very satisfactory, so that a strong aggregation should be
sent over the mountains. Valuable contacts will be established
with the other institutions, and we believe that our team will be
a credit to the university. The "Ubyssey" congratulates the
Track Club on its sally into the realm of Canadian Intercollegiate
It is difficult to generalize about this year's initiation period,
and the best we can do is to say that on the whole, in spite of insufficient organization and certain excesses, it was a fairly successful business. In several respects it was most remarkable,
and a few of its features deserve censure.
Damage of some extent to the landscape and to the clothes
of unwilling victims cannot be avoided in affrays like the two
great Battles of the Lily Pond. It is more than likely that such
scenes of wholesale immersion, enjoyable though they were to
most of the spectators and participants, will never be allowed to
occur again.
Perhaps the less said about Friday's inane "pep" meeting,
the better. It must be remarked, however, that if the absentees
from the Freshette initiation were to put on a skit, it should
have been arranged beforehand. Only four of a long list called
upon responded, and these girls were subjected to the jeers of
the mob in the auditorium. Though it was doubtless not the intention of those responsible, the effect was cheap.
In a number of ways the Sophomores laid themselves open
to charges of unnecessary rowdyism. On Thursday night, for
instance, several students were painfully burned when blazing
gasoline-soaked rags were thrown at the bonfire the Freshmen
were guarding. Then in the middle of Friday afternoon, although
a truce had been made, the pyre was ignited, and soon only a
water-soaked ruin remained. We would not care to charge this
dishonorable act to the Sophomores without being certain that
the incendiaries belonged to that class, but inquiries seem to
establish it as a fact that students were the perpetrators. The
outstanding feature of this year's initiation has been the fine
spirit of the "Frosh," and the good-sized substitute bonfire they
hastily built was an evidence of this.
Another example of Sophomore excesses was the practice
of cutting swaths in the hair of hapless Freshmen during the
actual "initiation." This should not have been permitted, and
its occurrence must be charged to the absence of proper supervision of the whole affair.
Last year's Students* Council and Alma Mater Society favored
retaining last fall's initiation program, but the Faculty objected.
The new Council considered it best not to have an officially
organized Snake Parade, and the "Ubyssey" regretfully supported this stand. Incidentally, however, we question the wisdom
of Faculty interference in this matter, and hold that it clashes
with the principle of student self-government.
An unauthorized Snake Parade was staged downtown at
the conclusion of official ceremonies on the campus. We are not
sorry that the students refuse to give up this feature of Initiation Night. Why should not the Snake Parade continue to be
held unofficially? As long as no damage is done there are not
likely to be any objections, and the Parade is an event looked
forward to by citizens and students alike.
*       *       *
Certainly an unsatisfactory beginning has been made toward founding a suitable campus ceremony, and next year's
plans should be made well in advance. A better program could
be instituted by having the cairn ceremony at night, and by giving thought to other innovations. The main criticism of this
year's proceedings must be, as has been said before, that there
was a lack of sufficient organization and central control, and it
may be added that more imagination might have been shown by
those in charge of the arrangements.
Being a miscellany of verses, sketches,
and general jottings about affairs of interest, on and off the campus.
After beinp many times depressed by
the declarations of tbe learned, that
Vancouver is a "hick town" in all matters artistic, il was delightful and reassuring to see tbe big Orpheum Theatre

formers could Ire called bucolic in (be

Music is a very strange art. Yours of
study and labor are gone through to produce for us a thing like Beethoven's
Fifth Symphony, which takes pcrlui|m
fifteen minutes to listen to. Years more
may be put into tbe studv nnd appreciation of K. It is well-nigh impossible to

through moonlit woods; but one's conception of the thing may Ih» widened almost indefinitely. A great novel 1ms
been written to tlie Fifth Symphony-
Comfort's "Fate Knocks at Ihe Poor."
But it's always the other fellow's work
you are doing in music; and, as compared to literature, for instance, tbe o|>-
nurtunitics are very small. The Robot

Through the long centuries of man's evolution, war has
been the chief factor in the rise and fall of civilizations. Wars
for destruction, wars for progress, have determined the course
of history, and yet the dream of laoting peace has been entertained by most races not entirely barbarous. Even the Iroquois
had their League for Peace, and modern Europe has seen successive efforts of a similar nature. Every scheme failed. In
1918 the most tremendous and ghastly war of all came to a close,
and the greatest efforts tbat have ever been made to maintain
peace began with the founding of the League of Nations.
Greece and Rome fell, and the culture of western Europe
developed, largely based on theirs. Now, after a long period of
international strife and adjustment, the life and culture of each
country is shared in its essence by the others. What irony if,
having reached its present dominance, white civilization should
start, upon a swift career of self-destruction! Yet war has become so deadly and its weapons so powerful that this anti-climax
seems certain, unless the instruments of peace, established since
1918, are able to prevent it. War and Civilization have come to
a parting of the ways.
Men have never been able to end wars, and they will never
succeed unless they go about it more earnestly than ever before.
These are critical times, and extraordinary efforts must be made
if civilization is to achieve what should be its great triumph—
the antiquation of offensive warfare. The masses must be
brought to realize the stakes, and educated to support the new
means for controlling international relations. Consequently it
is the duty of every intelligent person to do all in his power to
promote a lasting peace, and the universities of the world will
incur the censure of posterity if they do not take their stand
as leaders in the great pacific movement. Military training is
out of place in these institutions, for they should show the way,
working with the other influences to prepare the nations for an
effective and practical degree of disarmament, co-operating with
each other to spread a cosmopolitan attitude among their members and, graduallly, among the rest of the people.
It is easy to fall into the narrow, conventional attitude that
tolerates the traditional militarism, believes any other course
unpatriotic, and seldom thinks in international terms. This is
the greatest obstacle to the peace movement, and so its greatest hope lies in the support of the more highly educated citizens.
The times are critical, it has been said, and the efforts extraordinary. There must be no indifference, no backsliding, but a
steady growth of strength fostered by the universities, and their
graduates, and all others who understand what is under way.
No one who understands can fall to thrill at the immensity, the
difficulty, of the task. It is making a tremendous demand on
human energy and human ingenuity, and human faith.
The majority of students at this university, brought up
largely in the post-war atmosphere, have some comprehension of
these things, and that is why, we believe, the Alma Mater Society
has opposed the establishment here of a C.O.T.C. May it continue to do so, avoiding the indifferent attitude referred to above,
until disestablishment of the Corps results, or until students of
these days become members of the Senate, and are able to correct the retrogressive policy of their predecessors in this matter.
The main grounds for the "Ubyssey's" opposition to the
Officers' Training Corps must now be clear.

Editor,   The   "Ubyesey."
Dear Sir:—
After reading the correspondence in your
last issue, one might almost feel that susceptible upper Artsmen were in grave danger ot
being  influenced  by  the C.O.T.C.
Apparently the Brutal Bayonet man is seeking the benefits and comforts of war, should
one occur, and displays an admirable mock-
heroism, naming this training as being for
the defence of the country. What guarantee
has the bayou steer that members of the O.T.C.
receive commissions in time of wart While be
rightly disdains those who shun the "dirty
work' and stay at home, would he from hli
questionable position of comfort and military
superiority high-hat the private T After all,
many a private has arisen In emergency to
prove the quality and worth of his station.
Due to this and other Inconsistencies In the
brutal fellow's would-be criticism, the atudent
body will hardly be Influenced by It. Student
sentiment will remain with the Ideals ex*
pressed during previous years, and Its sympathies will be like John Masefleld'ti
"Nut with the medalled commander
Riding cock-horse to parade when the
bugles are blown."
And speaking of student opinion, I also
feel that the editorial "Superimposed Militarism" has come at an opportune time for ln«
forming the Freshmen as to the past and
present statu* of the C.O.T.C.
Yours sincerely,
He reads Exchange News
Kdltor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sin
Under the "Exchange News" In your last
Issue, 1 was very much Interested wtth some
of the Freshman traditions in the Unlveralty
of Southern California. 1 think it la about
time that U.B.C. had something along those
lines. The wearing of a green eap and a
placard for a few days, does not constitute
much of a tradition, -especially when It Is
not enforced. Would It not he better to have
some traditions which could be enjoyed hy
the upper classes as well as the Freshmen T
Here's hoping somebody gets up enough ambition to reply to this.
Yours truly,

became aware of thick, cloying |>erfuiuo
of tho over-sweet incense of the Orient
* * * I o|>ened my eyes. A large, high
room. Yellow, red and gold hangings.
Smoking green-bronze lamps. A gilded
screen with carven dragons. An altar
with silk-embroidered trappings. And
on it the most hideously repulsive idol
I have ever imagined. The figure of
Bunt!It I remembered vague legends
of the greatest of Chinese demon-gods,
the strange rites, and bloody sacrifices.
The unspeakable initiations, the very
mention of which would make the heart
of the most callou. sophomore stand
still. How many of these tales were
true? I would Boon know—for I realized
with u shudder that 1 was not in a frat-
house but in the temple of Bunt himself.
Full consciousness came on me with a
rush. I was lying on a couch, in the
corner of a 1-rge ajmrtment. A voice
spoke in some foreign language which
sounded like Freshman French but was
probably Chinese. I glanced around,
nnd looked into the almond eyes of an
aged Chinaman, clad in a long crimson
robe. He was holding u green goblet
and motioned me to drink. Being an
Alpha Gamma pledge, I could drink
anything, so I nodded assent and the
Oriental poured some of the green fluid
between my lips. It tasted'like honey
and onions] and, used ns 1 was to Cafeteria coffee, I felt instantly refreshed.
The rolling resonance of a heavy gong
drifted from behind the altar, and a line
of robed and hooded figures entered,
each bearing a pot of incense and chanting in a low, weird undertone. Thoy
faced the idol and prostrated themselves
on the floor.
The gong sounded again.
"Hound two," I murmured.
A tail figure with a long white beard
and an expression of lofty dignity strode
to the idol and sprinkled some dark
powder on a brazier beside the great
Bunt. Immediately a cloud of smoke
rose to the ceiling, mixed with tongues
of crimson flame. The bearded one
placed one forefinger on his lips to command silence. "The Librarian," I
Again the gong sounded.
The tall figure began to chant in a high-
pitched sing-song voice, then paused
abruptly and pointed a talon-like finder
toward rne. Immediately two of the
men approached me, and in the manner
of Arts Thirty-three held mc in a grip of
steel and bore me slowly and remorselessly to the altar. Subconsciously 1
waited for tlie strains of the 'Wedding
Another minute and I was face to
face with the bearded man, whom 1
reulized must be none other than the
Grand Snard of Bunt!
"Who are you, white man?" lie asked
in perfect English. Instinctively I produced my blue driver's licence. "Oscar
Seribbleweil, Chev. roadster, 1013 model,
number 111,111, say, officer, I wns only
doing twenty-five," I reeled off with a
facUity born of long practice.
The Snard glared at me. "And what
have you to say to the great and powerful god Bunt?" he hissed.
"Er—how do you do?" 1 managed to
"Take care, foreign devil," he hissed,
his face close lo mine. "You, who
stand within the power of Bunt tbe
Terrible, do you know who I am?" He
drew a long knife from his sleeve.
The crimson and gold curtains behind
the god Bunt wero rent asunder, the idol
swayed und toppled forward with a
thud, and a tall figure in a black robe
and hood stood on the altar.
A shout from the priests, a volley of
ejaculations in Chinese. Tlie crack of
a revolver from the man in black, ami
the (irand Snard swayed, then fell to
the door without  a sound.
"Come Seribbleweil," shouted the
black-hooded ligure. "Follow me." As
the priests darted forward to Heine me,
lie picked up the massive gong in both
hands and hurled it into their midst,
knocking tin lenders prostrate. "Saved
by the gong!" I exclaimed.
I leapt on the altar and followed my
reseller behind the curtains and along a
narrow tunnel. "That altered the situation," 1 panted, but received no reply.
Behind us we could hear the shouts of
the Priests of Bunt as Ihey started iu
pursuit. We reached a door, opened it,
and in an instant  were in a dark alley

"And not by face alone are ye admitted." With this grim foreboding
Freddie ended (or would have, had
he been more politically inclined), his
speech to prospective members of the
Players' Club on Thursday. From
my hidden seat at tho back of Arts
100 I cogitated on the qualifications of the hundred or so students
who considered themselves worthy of
admittance to that august body. Did
each one of those men see himself
playing the part of Sir Peter to per*
fection? If he could see himself a
few days later, gesticulating wildly
on the stage of the Auditorium, forgetting his lines and (it must be confessed) making a complete fool of
himself, would he be sitting there so
contently, nodding assent to all Freddie had to say? And all embryo
Lady Teazles, are they really capable
of being sophisticated young women
of fashion, winding an old but useful
husband around tnoir little fingers?
I ask youl However, do not be discouraged. Remember, twenty-five
marks for poise!
Then I began to ponder upon the
why fore of the attractiveness of this
Club to the Student Body. As far
as I know, there are only five points
in its favor. 1) The chance of a tour
of B. C. with the Spring Play (the
relative getability of this is so distant
as to be disregarded).
2) The thrill of standing upon the
stage at the Xmas performances and
speaking your piece before father and
mother and friends of the family.
(Reminiscences of Sunday-School concerts).
3) The dance given for new members, when judgment is over, and lecture-rooms are left peaceful after 3
o'clocks. (Though why this is so attractive, I don't know. The Pub holds
two parties a year, and even this does
not bring the Student Body in hundreds to the feet of the Editor).
4) The superiority you gain by
dashing in a business-like manner up
the stairs to the Green Room, and
conversing professionally about makeup and props.
5) To have some link with the old
Alma Mater and keep in touch with
the progress of the Club. [(See 1).
Grads attend these parties]. (This
seems rather unnecessary, since fraternities and sororities are guaranteed
to keep you imbibed with "that college spirit" and to accept your checks
until the end of your life.)
As I watched couple after couple
leave Arts 100 I visualized the
ensuing scenes. Have not I experienced it in my time, only to be
weighed and found wanting? Yes, I
could see them. Couple after couple
meeting at the notice-board, finding
nn empty class-room, and going to

and what do you hear? "Then why
will you endeavor to be so disagreahle
to me—! I say, is that appealing?"
"Gosh no, it'* appalling!" "Now, Sir
Peter, don't bite your wife's head off."
"Why in the world wasn't I born
sophisticated? I sound like a two
year old." And so on and on, far into
the night, for can you imagine any
one about to undergo the ordeal of a
try-out, finding solace in his pillow ?
To-morrow all will be over and
peace will once more descend upon
the hearts of the ambitious. May tbe
wait in the Green Room not seem so
long, may the Auditorium not seem
so large and unfriendly, and may your
hands and feet not feel so unwieldy,
as the last time you sought (in vain)
to prove to Freddie that truely, you

Initiation ns staged this ye r was apparently it highly satisfy ing affair. Freshmen are now seldom seen without their
beret., thanks to tbe tonsorial embellishments added by the sophs. Desperate Ambrose of tbe rity tra ilie |>olice bad
an interesting evening. "Hats off to
tbe college boys" is now his motto. 1
shall lie interested to learn what tbe ileus
ex maehina, otherwise known as the
Faculty Committee on Student Affairs
will have to My about it all.
There were two examples of poor
Biiortsmanship shown in connection with
the initiation. The most flagrant was
tbe burning of the bonfire during the
afternoon, after a truce between the
Frosh und the Sophs had been declared.
Tbe other was the notion of a sophomore,
not unknown on the muck page in the
past, who though funking his own initiation ns a Freshman, nppenrcd Friday
night with an oversize club and enjoyed
himself greatly.
After years and years of male domination, the Muck Page has at last come
under the supervision of a co-ed. That
should mean the end of Mabel McGilli-
cuddy (the cat!) and the eviction of my
friend The Mvsoginist, wbo aired his
cynicism here last session. As for myself. 1 shall proceed to gain permission
to remain by the following paragraph.
The editing of the Muck Page is no
sinecure. In theory it consists of reading
and rejecting contributions. In practice
it is usually nothing but the thankless
task of writing and writing und writing
humorous articles and waiting und waiting und waiting for contributions (which
never come). Now, tbe Muck Page is
open to all students who have any inclination towards humor. One contributor has already appeared this year,
which is in itself a record. Contributions must of course be original and up
to a certain standard, but thero must be
dozens of students capable of writing
acceptable muck. A little cooperation
would lighten the Feature Editor's burden and produce a page of humor that
would be the envy of all the universities
of Canada.
♦ * ♦
My appeal for contributions has brought
one lone response, but what a response!
At present I doubt its bona fides, but
shall soon know for sure. I hojie it is
genuine.    Here it  is.
DenrR. A. P.,
I think your column is just adorable,
You arc so clever, You make me understand things I never understood before—
the Honor System, the (). T. (A, etc. and
even if tlie professors siieak of you so
sneeringly it doesn't make the slightest
bit of difference to me, because I am
sure you are dark and handsome and
just wonderful.
P.S.—I shall be in the cafeteria tomorrow
at three.    1 shall be sitting at the table
nearest tbe counter.
Getting out this paper is no picnic.
If we print jokes, people say we arc silly;
If we don't, they say we are too serious.
If we stick close to the job,
Wo ought to lie hunting up news.
If we don't print contributions,
We don't appreciate genius,
And if we do print  them, the paper is
filled with junk.
If we make a change in the other fellow's
write-up, we are too critical.
If we don't we are asleep,
If   we   clip   things   from   other   papers
We are too buy to write them ourselves.

Last Minute Try

Cleveland relieved. Bob Gaul swerved
and kicked with old time zest.
Nixon, Rogers and Martin were always on the ball, with the rest of the
scrum at their heels.
Mercer, McConnachie and Bert Barratt staged a long run but an offside
undid the work. The last Varsity
score came when Mercer held on the
Club two-yard line, passed to Bert
Barratt who did the trick. The con-
Vert was wide.
At this stage, Varsity's team-work
stood in sharp contrast to the play
of the Rowers, who seemed to distrust each other. Leroy was brilliant
individually, as were several of the
forwards, but combination was markedly absent.
Estabrook nearly went over but
was halted Ave yards out. A long
kick by Underhiil relieved. An offside against Varsity brought the ball
in to the U.B.C. defense area and after a blocked kick. White scored for
the Club. The major points were not
This success revived the Rowers
and the game was as fast as at the
start. Not two minutes from the end,
Leroy broke through on his own 26
yard line and some criss cross passing
resulted in a try under the posts. The

whistle blew.

Varsity and Incogs battled to a OO
draw in the season's o*>ener at Brockton
Point, Saturday afternoon. Tbe game
was ragged throughout, but marked by
brilliant defense work on both teams.
Jakeway and Bischoff kept the hull away
from I be Varaity goal during the first
half when the lenni was short a defense
man, while Hughes worked bard throughout. In tho second half Varsity played
a more aggressive game and proved dangerous to the Incogs at times.
Due to limited time for organization,
U.B.C. did not field a team Saturday,
thereby forfeiting their game to Crusaders.

up with the fast-stepping Cowan-
Dodson eleven at Cambie St. grounds
on Saturday, and after a rather ragged display of the round ball game
emerged on the short end of a 3-1
The Varsity aggregation did not
put up anything Tike the same class
of game they did the previous week
at Dunbar Park; their combination
was extremely weak, as a result of
which they could not retain possession
of the ball for any length of time. It
must be said for the Juniors, though,
that they played throughout with only ten men; and that some of their
best men had been enlisted Into the
ranks of the Senior team.
The Cowan-Dodson eleven, playing
a nice combination game, assumed the
offensive from the opening whistle,
and found the Varsity net for the flrst
counter after five minutes of play.
Nettled by this early reversal, the
Varsity defense stiffened; and, under
continued pressure from the eager
Cowan-Dodson men, held the latter at
bay for a full half-hour. The Varsity
forwards were very little in evidence
during this period, and the defense,
finally weakening under the steady
bombardment, yielded the opposing
side its second goal just before half
The students came to life after the
interval, and pressed their opponents
strongly during most of the second
period; but lack of finish before the
posts robbed them of several golden
opportunities to score. The Cowan-
Dodson men broke away after ten
minutes of play, and made good use
of the opportunity, chalking up their
third counter. Varsity still maintained the offensive, however, and
was finally rewarded with a well-
earned goal by Cox iust before the
end. Final score, Cowan-Dodson 3,
Varsity 1.

I lie lirsl long hike ol' the season was
taken by the Outdoors Club on Sunday,
when thirty-two mcmlicrs and would-be
hikers made the long and very sleep
ascent of Crown Mountain. The first ,
party which had stayed overnight at the
Club, cabin on Grouse left early in tiiej
morning to be followed two hours later
by those who had come up from town.
The atmosphere, to the climbers at
least, seemed lo alternate between "pea
soup" fogs and cloud-bursts, and after
fallowing through patches of mud about
tv,.i feet deep a large fire on the |>eak
was decidedly welcome. A few hardened
mountaineers attempted the West Peaks
and tlie Camel. The slipping and sliding back to the cabin was made in about
two hours.

Bottom, Dirom and Steele were the
pick of the backfleld and Smith and
Duncan did good work in the line.
Varsity has the necessary material
for a good team with plent> of weight
and experience in the line and a fast,
light backfleld.

Arising in the cold of early morning,
the newly initiated members of Almu
Muter attended a ceremony at the
Cairn at 7.;'(). Don Hutchison addressed them, explaining the meaning of
the monument and the history associated with it. The customary spartan
fare of coffee and rolls was served as
breakfast in the Cafeteria.

Although the Freshettes' initiation
on Thursday evening took a milder
form that of their brothers, the ceremony was no less impressive. Freshettes and their Seniors assembled in
the gymnasium where they took part
in a candle-lighting ceremony, during
which each Freshette received a lighted candle from a Senior, and pledged
allegiance to her Alma Mater,
The Initiation ended with the Freshettes serving refreshments to the Seniors.
