C.P.S. DIREaOR FAVORS
AMERICAN GAME HERE
Editor Ubyssey:
Enclosed herewith copies of a letter and an article I havo recently received from the University of Washington and the College of Puget Sound
respectively.
The letter from Mr. McNeal was written especially for the "Ubyssey"
and I am sure that the publication of It will go a long way towards clearing
up the misunderstanding that, at present, seems to exist at the Unlveralty
retarding American football.
With many thanks, believe me,
Sincerely youra,
B. B. OCULT,
Manager American Football Club
January 26, 1920.
Although   I   cannot   say   that   I
am familiar with all conditions at
U. B. C, It la my opinion that any
opposition there may be to American
football and to the American system
of inter-collegiate athletics has come
largely as a result of a lack ot understanding and mls-lnformatlon. The
math points on which it seems some
explanation are needed are: expense,
opachlng system, time required from
studies, and professionalism.
> -The expense of inter-collegiate football is by no means prohibitive. The
o«st of equipping a player for tho
Stne Is approximately thirty dollars,
'his means Initial cost). Much of
the equipment Is used over two or
more years, so that over a period of
years the cost Is much less, approximately twenty dollars per season.
There are scores of colleges with
smaller student bodlea than youra,
aao much smaller communities to
draw from who are carrying out good
football schedules every year without flnanolal Injury to the institution or to other student affairs. Many
colleges carry out their lnter-class
and Inter-fraternity programs from
the profits made on football. Some
schools have even paid for their stadium, track, and gymnasium equipment, with the profits from football.
Ai a matter of taot I doubt If there
!■ a college In the country that carries out a reasonable football schedule that doea not make a profit from
the sport. It seems, therefore, that
the arguments put forward regarding
undue expense are not well founded.
Equipment in sports other than football amounts to much less than In
football, but the gate receipts are
also much loss, Efficient management Is of course, an essential necessity to any business proposition. We
have worked to Improve our system
each ot the four years I have been
here, and In addition to running full
athletic schedules for each sport, we
have liquidated an old debt of more
than a thousand dollars. My salary
is of course, not considered In these
flgnres at all. Ab head of the Department of Physical Education of
the college, I am a member of the
staff and paid entirely by the college.
(Note: Mr. McNeal Is a member of
the Faculty Committee and as auch
Is entitled to all privileges).
The matter of paid coaohes is not
one necessarily peculiar to American
football. I believe that we will find
paid coaches, or trainers, in almost
every sport In practically every country. Even Reed College, where ao
little inter-colleglate competition Is
allowed, pays its physical director.
This seems to me aa it should be, because there Is no question that the
welfare of the physical man Is Important to the guiding of good citisens.
There ia a general misconception as
to the place of athletics in the educational programme of American colleges. Those who follow athletic competition closely are almost unanimous
In their conclusion that inter-collegiate contests are of great value In
the development of aggressiveness,
determination, concentration and
obedience. These traits are certainly valuable in the building ot character, which as I interpret it U the
primary object of all educational effort. Why then, should the coaches,
athletic directors or whatever title
you care to give them not be paid,
Just as any faculty member expects
to be paid, for his contribution to education? Many times it bas been said
by educators that the athletic directors have a greater influence over the
youth in American colleges than any
other    Individual    instructor    could
have, It would seem that it would
be far better to pay a man to direct
the athletic activities of the student
body and organise them along the
best possible lines, so that tho majority of the students could participate, and ao that tbe outside evil Influence! could be held in check, than
leave the students adrift with no
central head to whom they could look
for guidance and advice. This is
the attitude of American college administrators. I do not recognise any
legitimate objection to a system of
paid coaches.
As to tbe time needed for football,
I will cite the time given at the College of Puget Sound under my own
personal direction, during the last
season. We started practise Soptem
ber 15th (this is the earliest date
that any team in the Northwest Conference may start practise). Our
men were requested to be on the field
at four o'clock and were always dismissed promptly at five thirty, because practically every man on the
squad was working and had to be in
town by six o'clock. Practises were
held five days a week with games on
eight Saturdays. The season ended
November 21. Three of the eight
games were held away from town.
No olasses are held on Saturday tn
our Institution, and in no case did
students miss more than Friday
afternoon classes on these trips away
from i home. I am of the opinion
that our total time spent on the field
and in travelling was less than that
of any other team in the country that
meets the class of competition that
We meet. The time spent away from
home for games 1^ necessarily dependent upon the arrangonieTit of the
schedule, and may easily be so arranged that only one day of class
work for ouch of the three or four
games away from home need ho missed by the players.
The subject of professionalism is
one that might be discussed at great
length wtth very little accomplished.
On this subject I give only my personal opinion, based on observation
and experience in a country where
professional athletics aro recognized
as entirely honorable so long as Jhey
are kept In their distinct class. Professionalism among athletes who are
still in college has been abolished in
present day institutions. The fact
that "Red" Grange took advantage
of his reputation, which he made in
inter-collegiate competition, to amass
a quick fortune, has recently attracted undue attention to professional
competition in foothill. Without
Grange, professional football would
still be In the dim background ot
professional athletics, and with the
passing of him will again recede to
its place of unimportance. Why?
Because American football Is and always must be a college sport, and
that alone. The Idealism which fires
a player and urges him on in defense
of his Alma Mater is lacking when
only money Is at stake. Even Grange,
In the heydey ot his youth, Is pitifully Inconsistent In his professional
gamo as compared those fought for
the old "lllinl" and his splendid
coach, Bob Zuppke- a man of unimpeachable character and Idealism.
(Knowing Zuppke personally, and
having studied under him, I am In
saying that I bolleve good sportsmanship Is to htm of prime importance and entirely overshadows the
mere winning of games—the rule
which every man should accept as
the rule by which he plays every
game ot lite).
From time to time, football meteors may flash before the public for

Should Editor
Of Ubyssey Be
On Council ?
It is possible that next year the
Publications Board will not be represented on the Students' Coucll.
Mr. Oliver brought up the question
at Monday nights' meeting. It seemed to him, he said, "that the UbysBey
would have a freer hand in determining it's policy If it were completely
separated frrom the council. At present there is a tendency to confound
the opinions ot the Ubyssey with those
Of the executive, due to the Editor-
in-Chief being one of the letter's members. If it were a unit In Itself, he
thought, it would more accurately reflect student opinion through the medium of Its large and representative
editorial staff, and would become a
guide to the council rather than its
organ."
Mr. Birney denied that he allowed
the policy of the Ubyssey in any way
to be governed by that of the council, and his ohief objection to the step
was that the council should havo so
much financial control over tbe paper
without its having any representation. He suggested as an alternative
scheme that the Ubyssey should be
made Independent of the Annual and
Handbook. Then It would be practically self-supporting and would be
free to criticise the executive In any
way It saw fit.
Mr. Taylor was in favor of substituting for the Publications Board seat
on the council, a position open exclusively to 3rd year students. This
"Junior Rep" or "Committee-man" as
he might be called, would havo no
fixed duties, but would attend to Important details that are at present distributed among other members. This
would avoid the possibility of the
council being entirely composed of
seniors.
Mr. Birney stated that he had no
personal objection to the change, If
the majority were in favor of it, and
Mr. Oliver moved that an Alma Mater
meeting be called, to vote on a definite amendment to the constitution.
At the same A. M. S, meeting a
motion put by Mr. Taylor will be
voted on, to thi> effect flint the office
of Secretary-Treasurer, who shall be
appointed by Council, he -ulded to the
executive of the M. V. S. to tako care
of the present surplus of work lr. that
organization.
Campaign Committee Appointed
John Oliver reported his Interview
re the Gymnasium Campaign with the
Board of Governors, who expressed
themselves as very favorable to the
scheme. They opposed the Introduction of a professional promoting firm,
but saw the necessity of having a paid
campaign manager to look after details. The alumni is also believed to
be very keen on the building campaign and a lot of help Is expected
from them. The council Is getting
into communication with some of the
grade, with a view to obtaining the
best possible campaign manager, and
a self-perpetuating campaign committee will shortly be appointed, to consist of two alumni, three members of
the student body, and the president
of the A, M. S. It Is expected that
the money will be raised In about
two years.
Another Tag Day
Permission was granted the 9. C. M.
to hold a Tag Day on February 28,
for the benefit of the Student Friendship Fund.
Players Club Trust Fund Closed
In future a Stage Maintenance Account of $500 will be provided for
every year In the budget, for the upkeep of mechanism In the auditorium. At the name time the Player's
Club Trust Fund, which has been the
cause or much misunderstanding, will
be merged In the general fund of the
A. M. 8.
Gordon Abernethy was delegated
last week to Investigate the matter,
and this was the recommendation he
brought In.
Freshmen May Plant Trees
It was suggested that the Freshman
Initiation next year take the form of
tree planting on the campus.
OPPOSING VIEW GIVEN BY
POPULAR ENGLISH RUGGER
The following letter, received by Prof, Powell, Honorary President of
the English Rugby Club, from an alumni of U. B. O, presents some of th*
arguments advanced by opponents ot the Introduction of American football
The letter reads:
February Crammed
With Functions
Crammed wtth events, the fair
month of February Is the richest so
far in social activities, Seniors, Juniors, sophs, and froih Join in the determination to have one more wild
fling before settling down to the
grind that precedes spring examinations.
Tonight, February 6, the floor ot
Lester Court will creak beneath the
tripping feet of those who have been
fortunate enough to buy, beg, or steal
one of the elusive tickets to the
Science Dance. Judging from the
prices paid for tickets by many determined Individuals, this dance
ought to be unusually interesting.
Tomorrow night, after two backet-
ball games, played by the Senior A
team, girls, and the Intermediate A
team, hoys, a dance will be held in
the Normal Gymnasium. Those basketball dances, usually run on the
"cut-in" system, are rapidly gaining
in popularity.
On February 11 1b the Froab Claaa
Dance. Timid Freshmen who have
gathered enough courage to meet
their "draws" will eacort them to one
of the first large social affairs arranged by Arts '29. The dance will
be held at Lester Court.
The Ambassador has been chosen
by the Sophomores aa the scene of
their activities on February 12. Because of proximity of St. Valentine's
Day to the class dance, the hall will
be charmingly decorated with the
usual bleeding hearts and Immodest
cuptds.
High Jinks, greatly anticipated, especially by the Frosh, will be held
on February 13, in the old auditorium
at Fairview. Tins is the night when
all women of the University may
fully enjoy themselves without the
depressing Influence of mere man.
Judging from rumours, costumes will
be unusually good this year, Arts
men will hold their Annual Smoker
on the same night.
Tho Arts '27 Class Dance is on February 18. Just to be different, the
Juniors chose Willow Hall.
As Is seemly, the Seniors close the
February frolics with their ball on
tbe 22nd, at the Ambassador.
A   NOTICE   OF  CORRECTION
Student tickets to the Little
Theatre performance may be
obtained today (Friday) between the hours of 10 and 2 at
the office ot Mr. F. G. C Wood
In the Arts Building, and not,
as was previously announced,
In the foyer of the Auditorium.
Victorians Given Dance
Victoria College will provide the
opposition in three basketball games
on Saturday night In a return engagement of the fixtures played In Victoria at the  beginning ot the  year.
The Capital City institution came
out on top In the Intermediate A,
and Senior B girls' game, while Varsity took the Senior B tilt. The
Varsity teams ere out to win all
three games.
In honor of the Victoria Invaders a
dance will be given Immediately after the games. These games have
nothing at stake but It is up to the
students to give the Vlctorlanw a
good reception since thoy have always, shown great kindness on our
annual trip. Don't forget the intermediate rugby game between Victoria College and Varsity preceding
the Varslty-Ex-Klna George Tlsdall
Cup final at Brockton Point.
DON'T   FORGET   FEBRUARY   10,
ORATORICAL   CONTEST,
7.48 —AUDITORIUM— 7.46
I can see no possible objection to
playing Amerloan football solely because it is Amerloan rather than Can*
adian or British. The game Itself
should be the deciding factor. I wonder if the students of U. B. 0. realise
that American football In the Bast*
em colleges Is In a very unsatisfactory condition at present? Indeed,'
Harvard and Yale in particular are debating many radicle changes In their
gridiron sport. The main reason Is
that numerous well-known ex-football
players frrom these schools have re>
cently stated—In writing—that they
never enjoyed a minute of their college football. Their explanation Is
that, the training is exceedingly rigor-
oui, the game ii too mechanical, and,
li a fight rather than a sport. Discu>
lion of this can be leen in the Literary Digest for the last two months.
A former Harvard player auggeStS
that American football Is becoming
more like a Roman gladiator contest
than anything else—because It gives
pleasure to the spectators but not to
the players.
Slnoe I have played English rugby
I shall probably be accused of prejudice, but the lack of combined passing runs, or any form of open play,
makes the American game exceeding*
ly slow in my opinion. The ilgoal
system largely does away with Individuality, which, I think, is a very
necessary part of a game which U
intended to benefit its players. Interference haa been abolished front
Canadian football, which, I think
sufficiently condemns It.
Before Varsity could produce a team
that could compete with any major
American team on the Pacific Coast,
her men would have to devote sO
much time to training that any conscientious Science man would automatically be unable to participate—
unless the science curriculum has
eased up considerably of late. This
Is so because the American game requires a much more smoothly working machine than the English code—
every player must know exactly what
Is going to happen before the play is
made! McGiil, I believe, has tried
the American game with sad results.
I fail to see the argument, about
developing a "consumlg college
spirit." If oui alumni can't stick together without viewing inter-colleglate games, were to be greatly pitied.
"Tech" has a particularly strong
Alumni Association, but I wonder If
the members ever consume themselves by watching an intercollegiate
game? "Tech" doesn't possess an intercollegiate football team!
Personaly I look back upon my college as one of the most pleasant parts
of my university life—if not the most
pleasant. A game which draws forth
no such feeling frrom Its players
should at least be very carefully Investigated before it is adopted at
U. B. C.
Sincerely yours,
H. C. GUNNINO,
So. '28.

BB
Last Friday an editorial stating tlint the Dean (if the Faculty
of Science had infringed upon tho sport tradition appeared on this
page. This was inoorreet. And net only waa the statement incorrect,—the result of an inexaet knowledge of the facts—but it was
also misleading. It has probably deceived many students, on the one
hand as to the real difficulty in tho matter, on the other as to the
attitude of the Dean towards sport. The Ubyssey regrets this misrepresentation and apologizes for the consequent, though unintentional imputation to Dean Brock. Dean Brock did everything in
his power to arrange an hour satisfactory to athletes.
The whole trouble arose from an unfortunate error in the calendar—unfortunate because it is almost impossible to avoid making
some error in the calendar. In consequence of this mistake no laboratory period waa assigned to a first year Science section. Moreover,
as ths course waa compulsory, as all Arts students taking it had made
Up their time-tables, and as it is always difficult to twist a three-hour
lab. into a time-table already arranged, no alternative to Wednesday, after three o'clock, remained. Consequently the few athletes
intolved had to go through with the course. This briefly was, and is,
the state of affairs. The Ubyssey hopes that this question has been
made clear,
HOT DISCUSSION
WONBY FROSH
The Aggie lnter-class debates got
under way at a meeting of the Aggie
Discussion Club held at noon on Monday, February 1, in Room 102 of the
Agriculture Building with Jack Berry,
president, In the chair, The subject
or the, debate was, "Resolved that
student participation in athletics or
physical training be compulsory, and
that credit for auch participation be
included in the university calender,"
the Freshmen taking the affirmative,
the SophB the negative.
Mr. Black, leader of the affirmative,
gave a clear picture of the action of
physical training in freshening the
tnlnd, and in fitting one to fight their
way In the world, He closed by picturing the role of athletics In the historic ages of the past. Mr. Thornloe,
for the negative, discredited compulsory training on the grounds that only
a few students need It, the larger
number of students taking at least
their "daily dozen." He asserted that
a doctor's word, kindly given, would
be of more use than forced physical
training. Mr. Lott, second speaker for
the affirmative, dwelt more fully upon
the interrelation of a healthy body
and a well-functioning nil ml. Mr. Mo
Intyre, second speaker for the negative, portrayed the unwel'.diness of
such a system, because of present
crowded conditiolna. In his rebuttal
for the negative, Mr. Thornloe firmly
contradicted the affirmative's point
that athletic participation would eradicate petting parties; while Mr. Black
closed for the affirmative in a denial
of the futility of the system.
The Judges, Professors Moe and
Davis, gave the decision to the affirmative, censuring them, however,
together with their opponents for making their statements too general.
The next meeting of the club will
feature  a  debate   between   the   two INTER-FRAT BOARD
upper yeara. Walter Turnbull was elected secre
tary of the Inter-Fraternity Board at
Its last meeting. T. Taylor was ap
pointed chnlrman pro tern. The official representatives on the Hoard
were named as L. Smith, \V. P. Phillips, W. Turnbull, .1. Oliver nnd T.
Taylor. Fraternities represented nre
the Alpha Gamma Phi, Phi Rpslloii,
and Phi Kappa PI.

The M. I,, S, has received the handsome Inter-Class debating shield that
had been left in seclusion for about
two years. It will be placed on view
in  some conspicuous   place.
Splendid Address
Heard by SeC.M.
Rev. Williams J. Ogden, widely celebrated as a speaker and student of
christian ethics, delivered a most Instructive address in Ag. 100, Monday
last, on "The Emotional and Rational
in Religion."
The Importance of worshipping God
"with all thy mind" was emphasised.
He quoted historical and present Instances where the name observance of
that edict was In part responsible for
the various shortcomings among followers of Christian faith.
Admitting the power of blind unreasoning adoration of the Dlety, he
remarked on the greater depth of love
which naturally followed more profound rational enquiry of the fundamentals now reverenced.
With all seriousness, the speaker declared that the British association
should Institute a department for Investigating the psychological phenomena Involved In spiritual conversions.
The speaker brought a wealth or
ideas to elucidate his treatise and
spoke In a convincing manner.
Letters Club Prize
Competitors are reminded that essays for the Letters Club prize of
$25.00 which was donated by Mr. R.
L. Reid, K.C., are due not later than
March 1st. These essays should be

Editor, Ubyssey:
In regard to tbe letters and editorial comment both In the sports
column and the editorial column, I
wish to make a few suggestions.
Would it require too much of an
effort on the part of these writers to
Inquire Into the facts regarding the
American game and what would be
the effects of the introduction of the
pastime into our list ot recognised
aborts. 1 havo read the attempts at
satirical condemnation and I am absolutely in a fog as to what prompted these writers to grasp their pens
und unbosom their weighted souls of
such u conglomeration of utter rubbish, showing so plainly their ignorance of the question Involved.
Let us first consider the sportoriul
appearing in the Ubyssey, January
29th. What 1 should like to ascertain la why there appear discussions
on profesaionallam and commercial-
Ism In regard to American football.
Many students support the Ideas ot
Inter-colleglate basketball, rowing,
and track. Evidence presented shows
that more college athletes have turned profeaaionala In the first of these
than in any other of the tour mentioned. Professional football In the
U. S. A. was a thing of minor Importance until "our old friend Red,"
to quote the editor, turned professional. Again tbe editor says that
"twenty players and fifteen coaches
left for Alabama." My Information
tells me the game waa played in the
Rose Bowl at Pasadena, California,
for the American Inter-College Football. Championship. Further, the
press report states, that there were
eight coaches, including officials and
twenty players boarded the train tor
Los Angeles. This and the editorial
atatement, Mr. Editor, do not balance.
Then alao in the "Rebuttal ot the
Rebuttal," I have read the following
atatement, "under my special jurisdiction—will not brush aaide any
comments I may make." Since
when has a president ot a class become a dictator ot the trend of
thought of any of his classmates?
I have played American football in
two schools across the line and have
studied with some care the situation
hero and on the American side, and
fai! to see the great obstacles which
some students here raise. The Canadian inter-colleglate football Is practically Identical with the American
game and requires every bit as much
effort on the part of players and stu
dents to make It a success, apart
from the financial side of the question, and here again the games run
hand tn hand. I find that in many
American colleges smaller even than
our own that there are more men
playing the game than play the English code here and with smaller financial backing. Still they can place
stronger teams on the field than
many of the larger colleges. What is
needed here Is a time for football,
basketball, rowing and track Individually, and Hum our college would
receive a standing In regard to athletic activities on ihe coust. It is
individual effort combined with some
co-operation on the part ot the students that puts any game across.
I have endeavoured to avoid making uny statements which can in
anyway lead to argument, as I am an
advocate of the American game. I
would like to see in our college a
combined effort to balance opposing
facts; not as has been the case, facts
being combated by cheap humor and
poor satire.

speeches of the contest. To make the
event of double importance both the
Men's and the Women's contest will
take place on the aame occasion,
All the try-outs have been completed, and although the number of
contestants was small the quality of
the speeches has been especially
good.
, Six outstanding orators have been
chosen from the men and by good fortune each of these contestants has a
distinctive style. Witty speakers, resounding orators, straightforward,
matter ot fact talkers and ponderous
dlapenaera of wisdom can be contrasted, one with the other. All the apeak-
era are well known and dlstlnguiahed
In forensic clrclei.
Messrs. Stedman, Telford, Lea
Brown, Walter Turnbull, Paul and
Denia Murphy present such an all-star
conotellatlon that it is impossible to
predict the winner. The outcome of
the contest is lu the laps of the godi.
If "Variety is the spice of life," the
audience will emerge highly seasoned
by the diversity of subjects discussed.
Although the orators have not yet
announced their topics, they are sure
to be ot outstanding interest to all
students.
It is to be remembered that the
Men's Oratorical Contest of last year
was won by a brilliant speech on "Vox
Populi" that trod on the corn of the
ideas of democracy cherished by the
unenlighted members of the audience.
There is every indication that someone will explode an equally effective
oratorical bomb this year.
The Oratorical Contest will take
place on February 10th, at 8:16 p.m.,
In the Auditorium.   Admission Is free.

Chapter III.   Tha Man-Killir
Rodolph Speedy paused about ten
feel frrom the Infuriated broncho,
"Morale, horsie," he called, "Nice little
pony."
The Man-Killer rushed toward Ihe
intruder lutent upon trampling him to
death. The tenderfoot dodged like
lightning, but received a glancing
blow frrom one of the galloping hoofs
that sent him flying toward the stockade. Rattlesnake Ike roared with
laughter.
Speedy rose with his face set with
grim determinate. The U. B, G.
blood was up. "At least" he thought,
"this Isn't as rough as American
rugby."
Rodolph Speedy raced toward the
broncho as it charged again, and
brought him down with a flying tackle.
"Hold 'em" Varsity," he shouted,
clinging to the Man-Killer's neck.
The Man-Killer neighed In torror
and began plunging desperately. The
tenderfoot leaned forward and whispered a poem by E. F. In the maddened
beast's ear. The Man-Killer rolled
over and lay still, powerless to resist.
Rodolph Speedy rose amid tbe
shouts ot the cowboys and brushed
the dust frrom hla Oxford hags. A
piece of paper fell from one of the
pooketa and waa blown to the feet
ot the scowling Rattlesnake Ike.
The foreman snatched the paper,
glanced at its contents and his look
of chagrin dlaappeared aa if by magic.
"Here Mr. Carson," he shouted in
triumph to the rancher, who had Just
come to the corral. "Look at this.
This here tenderfoot Is goin' to corrupt all yer cowboys."
Carson took the missive and blushed. "Tenderfoot," he said grimly,"
You got ter go, I can't have things
like this around."
Rodolph Speedy came to the side of
the corral and toon the sheet.
It was a Muck Page of the "Ubyssey."
A deadly huflh fell upon the group,
a crisis had come.
What was that? ? T A piercing
feminine scream broke the stllness.
All eyes turned toward the direction
of the sound. There, far away on the
road was a covered gas-wagon racing
unsteadily toward the b;lnk of Kicking Cow Canyon.
"My daughter!" shieked Old Man
Carson, "Save her!"
Without hesitating an Instant, Rod
olph Speeily raced aoro.su the rorral
and hurled himself upon the back of
the   Man-Killer.

SALMON AND
SAUTERNE
A MILD REBUKE
It is lo be doped that all students
.•end a letter appearing In the correspondence column of the issue of
Tuesday last, and setting forth the
position of the Track Club in changing the course of the Arts '20 Relay.
I am about to reply to that letter.
The writer of the letter goes to
some pains to point out that the Arts
'20 Relay Is first and foremost a tradition, to take ao account of certain
other abstractions he mentions. In
the attempt to make his point, he
tumbles a play upon worda, the "race
will be seen only by the near-sighted,"
implying that the spirit of the race
must be sensed, rather than the contest witneaaed. In hla own words "It
la a tradition." But a tradition ia a
custom which has prevailed from generation to generation; since when has
it been the custom to ruin the relay
over the aewly projected course? A
tradition is a delivery Into the hands
of another; did Arts '20 deliver Into
the hands of the Track Club the race
the Track Club Intends to run?
What has the new race In common
with the old? Out of his own mouth,
the writer has condemned himself; in
changing the course of the Arts '20
Relay, he has destroyed the tradition
of the race.
Yet he says he does not want the
student body to feel that the Arts '20
Relay Is a discarded jaunt from Point
Orey to Fairview; how it could have
been more completely discarded pas-
Beth my comprehension, to put It In
classic phraseology. He goes on to
reiterate that the new race Is a traditional annual display of class spirit;
a thing which It cannot be, because in
Its novelty, It cannot be traditional.
The argument of using the race to
condition men for a track meet with
an American college, is specious and
clouds the issue; and that Issue is,
as I see it, a judgment as to whether
or not, the Track Club has put to
death the Arts '20 relay and stolen Its
Identity to lend prestige to a race
which they are fostering for purposes
of their own. They admit they are
using the new race for their own purposes when they sey they are conditioning men for a foreign event. To
this end. the Arts *20 Relay has been
sacrificed—immolated upon the altar
of that most contemptible god of
the  unbelievers,  efficiency.
The writer of the letter intended a
slight when he spoke of a few humourists who champion the Arts '20
Relay. These Jesters, though without
cap and bells and Mottley, are serious
in their denunciation both of the new-
course of the race and of the ulterior motives attendant upon the act of
change.

MEN'S UT.loCIETY HOLD
PARLIAMENT
Friday week, at 8 s 00 pjn„ the
government ot the Men's lilt Students Parliament will meet the house
on many Issues, of which the Canadian Rugby situation aeema the moat
likely to cause trouble. In fact, one
of thi "Met membera of the Irrecon-
cllableB, intends offering an amendment to the reply to the Presidents'
speech, the wording of which is approximately as follows: "That this
house, having heard the government's
proposals, and being aware of Us
record, Is convinced that the adverse
position of the government to Canadian Rugby has lost it the confidence
of both house and student body." The
opposition, together with some independents, will undoubtedly support
such a motion, and at this early
date It is Indeed problematical it the
government can muster enough support to meet the combined attack.

Arts '29 Discusses
Freshman Party
While Miss Boliert talked U the
girls on conditions In the common
rooms, the men of '29 met In the Auditorium to discuss the relay. The
the eta88 party was freely discussed.
Freshettes Joined them at 12.40, when
Thelma Colledge of the dance committee informed the students that tho
success Of this affair depends upon
themselves and asked them to do
their share. Because of the necessity
for economy, pencils will not be provided with the programmes, so the
boys are .requested to come armed
with some sort of writing instru
ments. Several have complained that
many have their programmes already
filled, but a vote on this showed a
mere half dozen in favour of filling
programmes ahead of time. Their
President then informed them that in
other Universities, Freshmen aro not
allowed to wear dress suits to class
parties, and that, although there is no
such restriction here, it is not necessary. He admitted that he himself
does not Intend to come in dress suit,
and it is to be hoped that the rest
of the boys will follow his example.
Also, everyone must come to the
Class Party with green bands prominently displayed on the left arm, above
the elbow.
Apparently, some of the Freshmen
have been too shy to even make themselves known to their "draws," so
Betty Matheson asked the girls to give
them till Monday before asking pome-
one else. She said that those who
have their programmes filled should
consider them cancelled. She also Informed the Freshmen that tho Fresh-
ttes would entertain them at. tea if
they won the relay. On behalf of the
men this invitation was accepted by
Gerry Stevens. With this inducement,
Arts '29 ciin do nothlne but win.
It. was reported that th" class pins,
which will cost 60c each, will be ready
In about ten days.
Leslie Jlrown, of the Players' Club,
urged the members of '29 to do their
utmost to make the Spring Play,
"Pygmalion." a real success.

Haturday, It also loses two cups. Two
Ilugby Cup's at slake! Im It worth
your while to support tho tutm? Varsity plays X-KIng George at 8.80 p.m.
at Brockton Point. Both loams play a
fast, open, spectacular game. Therefore, there will be one of the most
entertaining aa well as Important
games of the season at Brockton
Point on Saturday.
Lately the scrum has been strengthened with some extra weight, Since
the weak spot of the team so far
this year, has been the scrum, from
now on Capt, Johnnie McLean and
Coach Jim Scott are anticipating a
well-balanced team.
Peter Price, debonnalr forward, is
leading the ecrum In a most brilliant
fashion this season. He Is not only
travelling at top speed all tho time
himself, but also keeps his team-mates
In the game all the time wtth his advice and pep. His experience and
leadership are great assets to the
team.
Mahon and MoQuarrie, freshmen
are developing at a remarkable rate.
Both men are showing, real rugby
ability. They should develop Into outstanding forwards when they get a
little more experience.
The whole back division is maintaining its reputation as the finest one
Varsity ever had. Oustafson is doing
very well In Casey's place. Casey's
wrist Is not quite better yet.
Howard Eaton, the "space annlhll-
ator" of the team Is improving every
game. He is the fastest runner playing Rugby In the province and be atoo
has a natural swerve which very ae'.
dom accompanies real speed. Howard is showing more real rugby talent in every game.
There is a lot of competition in the
back division. Peter Palmer, veteran, who has played with Oee Ternan
is showing up very well in practices
and will certainly extend the rest of
the backs to keep their positions.
Bert Tupper, the huskiest and most
determined man on the team for his
size will make a strong bid for a
place on the line-up on Saturday.
Tike Abernethy ("long, lean and
loveable" as he Is described) Is having
a big season at full-back. He Is play-
In^ a bang-up game this year and is
improving every game.
The Freshmen, who are co-operating very well with the 1st team In the
way in which they turn out to give

team, they are worthy of it. Don't
forget the McKechnie Cup Game on
February 20.
C.P.S. Views
(Continued from Page 1)
a short time before sinking Into their
oblivion, but, in my opinion, will offer
no serious menace to the college
game since the officials of the professional organisations are themselves forming rules to protect the
college game.
There may be evils In the Inter-
colleglate sports programme as they
exist today, but because of the overbalancing good effects which are offered, our Inter-colleglate system of
snorts Is retained. If you. In U. B. C„
with your high Ideals of sportsmanship, will take American football as
you have your own sports, and will
play tbe game for tho gnme's sake,
competing with teams that should be
of your own calibre athletically
(without regard to whether they help
mi to retain your "place In the aun"
as regard other departments you may
have brought to a state of near* perfection In your school), you will, I
am sure, reap largely of the benefits
which are the Inevitable results of
our Intercollegiate football as it Is
played today.

The last tlmo these two teams met
the score was fifteen nil against the

scores or that nature are a thing of
the past for the U. B. C. team has had
a chance to get into shape as Saturday's game indicates. The game was

At a meeting of the Grass Hookey
Club last Friday, Harry Warren, who
la leaving for Oxford before the commencement of next season, resigned
his position as President ot the Club.
The Grass Hockey Club has progressed favorably under hie guidance and
a bright future is in store for this fine
game at the college. During President Warren's term a new constitution has been drawn up and the club
re-organized. A trip to the Island ii
contemplated this spring. There are
some good tea ma there and the Varsity squad expect some keen competition.
Les Brown is the newly elected
president and John Hulbert, Vice-
president.
Soccer Notice
Varsity first soccer eleven will
clash hoofs with the flashy Ladysmith aggregation of the Paolflo
Coast League on Saturday at Athletic Park, 2.30 p.m. Besides the
mud and the goal posts a number of
student rooters are alio anticipated.
This is Varsity's first opportunity
to show what their rejuvenated eleven can do. Ladysmith, it Is expected, will play their consistent
game which has placed them in the
position they now occupy in the
league standing. Varsity can win
this game only by fighting every minute of the play.
