VANCOUVER, B. C., OCTOBER 15th, 1926
No. 6.
Students' Council
Passes Budgets
of AH Clubs
The second meeting of the Students
Council was held on Monday night,
October 11, at 6.80 p.m. The regular
business of the evening, Including the
reading of minutes of the various
societies, was quickly oonoluded in
order to discuss the more important
questions.
Trsok Team Entered
The problem of sending a five-man
track team to the university of Saskatchewan as requested, was debated
at length, and in this respect a letter
from the secretary of the Track Club
was read, stating that unless a track
team was entered this year in the
Western Inter-Collegiate meet, U. B, C.
would cease to be a member of the
league. The problem of finances, however, was a great obstacle, but the
Council finally agreed to send a four-
man team to represent this college,
thereby reducing expenses considerably, and at the same time holding
Varsity's membership.
Tennis Tournament with U. of 8.
Canoslled
Another weighty question which required much consideration, was the
feasibility of having the University
of Saskatchewan's tennis team play
here against U. B. C. Once more the
financial condition presented difficulties. Moreover, the council considered It a risk due to the inclemency of
the weather, and for these reasons
the tournament was abandoned.
**"'" Budgets Presented
The Budgets of certain societies
were then presented. That of the
Men's Athletic Society called for the
largest expenditure, and after much
discussion, the Council passed the
following:
Soccer Club  $1,220.00
English Rugby Club     600.00
Basketball Club      412.60
Canadian Rugby Club     246.50 a  glass   prism  we  obtain   the  well
Ice Hockey Club  229.70
Swimming Club  176.00
Badminton Club   104.33
Grass Hockey Club  80.00
Outdoors Club   52.85
Rowing Club (not submitted)
Approximate   300.00
Total $3,420.88
The Women's Athletic Society was
granted  the following budget:
Swimming Club  $190.00
Gymnasium Club     61.75
Basketball Club      49.90
Hockey Club    S8.10
Badminton Club      5.00
Total ..$344.75
The total budget for both Athletic
Societies for the year was thus placed
at $3.76563
This figure may be altered when the
Rowing Club Budget Is received.
Budgets to the amount of $170.00 and
$4,900.00   were   also  granted   to   the
Woman's Undergraduate Society and
The Publications Board respectively.
Correspondence Secretary
The Council then discussed the possibility of employing a general secre
tary to handle correspondence and arrange various trips ot clubs and societies, such as the Flayers' Club and
. Athletic Clubs. They were unable,
however, to arrive at a decision and
the matter was dropped until the
next meeting.
HomeComlng Week
Amongst other business of the
evening requests for rooms for general
meetings were granted with one or
two exceptions. The report of the
Curators Department was read by the
secretary, Miss K, Baird, and a vote
of thanks extended to Mr. R. G.
Phillips for his work In that regard.
HomeComlng Week was announced by
President John Oliver to be held In
November. On Friday evening, November 5, a bonfire will open the weekend celebrations at tho University
grounds. On Saturday, November 6,
all students will gather at the McKechnie Cup Game at Brockton Point,
and on Monday a reunion tea and a
theatre night will be held.
Dr. Harris Describes the
Discovery of Element 61
Addresses Large Audience on World Famous Discovery.
Gives Full History of Undertaking
Room Sc. 200 was filled to capacity on Wednesday afternoon, when
students assembled nt the first meeting of the Chemistry Sooiety to hear Or.
J. Allan Harris speak on his recent discovery of Element 61, Illinium, at the
University of Illinois. After the conducting ot preliminary business by the
President, the matter of electing a Second Vive-President was brought before
the meeting. Miss Gertrude Dowsley was elected to thia office. The policy
of the Society for the coming year was then outlined and applications
from prospective members were received.
The following is an account of the discovery of Element 61, as related hy
Dr. Harris.
"The rare earths are so-called, not
from the fact that they are rare In
nature, but because they possess such
peculiar and striking properties. They
are not new, being a group of trlvalent
elements, but then chemistry is so
involved that progress has been difficult. In 1797 John Gndolln In Sweden
announced the discovery of a new element. One hundred and twenty years
of work showed that this element was
not a single one but actually consisted
of 15 different ones, but whose chemical properties were so closely related
as to make separations by chemical
means impossible. It Is possible to
separate the ordinary elements by
means ot various reagents, but in the
case of this group, whenever you have
one, you have the others, and the only
way to separate them from each other
Is by a long process of fractional crystallization.
First Traoes of Element 61
By 1912 chemists were flattering
themselves upon having isolated all
of this group, but with the perfection
of the Xray Spectrograph by Moseley
in England, it became quite apparent
that No. 61 was still missing.
Although chemical tests for the Individual elements are lacking, nature
did give us a rapid means for the
Identification of these metalu in the
spectra.   If white light is passed thru
known spectrum. If, however, solutions of the rare earth elements are
Interposed, we have dark bands crossing the spectrum and each of these
"absorption bands," as they are called,
are peculiar to that one element. We
are thus enabled to analyze a solution
quite rapidly once tho absorption
liiuids are known,
if on the other hand, we use an arc
as our source of Illumination, Interposing some of the oxides of these
earths, so that the incandescent oxides give us our white light, wo find
the spectum to be crossed with hundreds of fine lines, every one belug as
peculiar to one element as la one's
fingerprint. Both these methods, while
extremely useful and sensitive, are
useless unless the element in question
has been previously determined.
Research Work Begun
In 1918 the U. S. Bureau ot Standards and the University of Illinois,
entered Into a co-operation agreement
whereby the latter would furnish pure
rare earth materials In order that their
arc spectra could be accurately
mapped. During this work It was
found that elements 60 and 62 had
lines In their spectra common to both
elements. This was naturally not to
be expected and seemed to indicate
the presence of some other element.
In the hope that It might be element
61, work was started at Illinois by L.
Qyntema, but two years' work yielded
no trace of the missing element.
In 1923 the writer undertook the
search as a research problem for a
degree.
In view of the extensive work that
had been done It appeared as though
something was wrong with previous
methods. All other investigators had
lined the crystallization of a double
magnesium nitrate series as their
method of aeparatton. This should
make 60 and 02 neighbors of element
61, but their heavy absorption bands
made the detection of any new bands
Impossible, By working with bromate
salts it was found that Gadobrum and
Terbium could be made the neighbors
ot the missing element In such a series,
and as these elements show very little
absorption in their solutions, any new
bunds should give an indication of
some new element. This was foun^.

RULES STATED FOR
FROSH RECEPTION
Arrangements are now completed for
the Freshman Reception to be held
In Lester Court on Friday evening.
It remains for the students to give
their full co-operation to the committee to assure its success, The
rules are as follows:
(a) Upper-class men shall dance
with the Freshettes,
(b) Freshmen shall dance with
upper-class women.
(c) Introductions are unnecessary
(d) Five dances they may dance
with their lady of choice, namely, the
Introductory, the supper and home
waltzes, and two others to be announced.
(e) There will be no programmes.
It  Is  hoped  that  students will do
their utmost to observe these rules.
Clause "a", no doubt, will be carried
out exceptionally well, so that this
notice applies mainly to Freshmen.
ARTS '30 ELECTION OF OFFICER8
Freshmen will please take notice
that there will be a meeting of their
clasa In the Auditorium on Friday
noon, October 22, for the purpose of

Rugby Team Faces
Stiff Opposition
Plays the Crack Rowing Club
Fifteen on Saturday
After the disastrous results of last
Saturday's rugby games, the coaches
put the squad through the stiffest practice of the season last Wednesday
afternoon. Jack Trywhitt has introduced a new feature, hand-off practising, which should help strengthen the
Varsity players' attack. The only
really powerful hand-off at present developed is that of Bert Tupper, who is
reputed to punch nails Into, a board as
practice.
A new coach was out In the person
of Bob Granger, who is coaching the
Freshmen team. Granger is well-
known in almost all branches of athletics and should soon knock the green
out ot the Frosh,
The VarBlty Senior team will try
out a new formation Saturday, Formerly they have used the 2-3-2, but In the
coming game will line up 3-4, Playing
on the front • rank will be White,
Sparks, Forrester with Morris, Willis,
Kidd and Mahon supporting them from
behind. With the return of Squiddy
Mclnnls, BUI Locke has been moved
to wing forward, with Doug Mclntyre
at halt. Qustafson will lead the backfleld as five-eighths supported by
Eaton, Taylor, Barrett vaxvd Easter-
brook. Eton has the reputation ot
being the fastest man in Varsity, but
Taylor and Barrett are right on his
heels. Easterbrook plays his first
senior game, his forte being tackling.
Squiddy Mclnnls, at fullback, needs
no Introduction to Varsity rooters.
Sparks, the aged spoiler, is back in the
game after being out through injuries
last week, out Tupper has taken his
place on the crooked list.
Reports in the papers that alumni
will play In the McKechnie Cup game
against Vancouver are absolutely unfounded, declares Bert Tupper. The
Varsity rugby teams will continue to
be undergradute players only, as It is
deemed unfair to give graduates places
on the team which would otherwise be
held by students actually in attendance at the University. The Rugby
Club announces that special student
tickets for McKechnie Cup gamea will
be sold for twenty-five cents Instead
of the customary fifty cents.
Varsity "Seniors play Rowing Club
on Saturday at 2:15, at Brockton
Point, while Varsity Intermediate play
Souforthfl at 2; 15, and Frosh meet
X-Techs at 3:15 on the Lower Brockton grounds.
P.I.P.A.JERVICE
UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON,
Oct. ??.—(P.I.P.)—Following the nomination of Stephen I. Miller by the
Board of Regents to the presidency of
the University of Washington, the
Alumni Association pointed out to all
educators seeking the presidency that
no vacancy exists, and that It is prepared to fight to the end to uphold
this point in law.
In the meantime Stephen I. Miller,
who is former dean of the college of
business administration, was considering tho informal offer of the presidency of this institution.
A. H. B. Jordan, president of the
Board of Regents, said in a formal
statement: "No offer was made Mr,
Miller.". Although the board as a
whole made no formal tender ot the
office at a conference held Sunday,
when Miller arrived In Seattle Saturday night, Jordan Is reported to havo
frankly declared his satisfaction In
the pending negotiations.
Sophs to Entertain
the Victorious Frosh
Arts '29 wish to announce that they
will entertain the Freshmen at tea on
Thursday, October 21*t, from 3,30 to 6.
According to the conditions of the Initiation "fight," the losers were to give
the treat. The Sophomores were the
losers of the "fight," therefore they
will be the hosts at the tea. All
Fre&hmen are requested to attend, and
the Sophomores should consider It a
point of honor to be present and entertain Arts '30. Remember—Thursday
at 3.30.
Eminent Educators
Address Meeting
In Auditorium
The Auditorium waa completely
packed last Wednesday morning at
a meeting to hear Dr Ray Lyman
Wilbur, President ot Standard University, and Dr. J. Marl* Davis, Secretary of the Institute of Pacific fte>
In dons.
President Kllnck, In introducing
Dr. Wilbur, commented first on ths
gratifying size of tho audience. He)
then remarked upon California's pro*
gresslveness in education, and of the)
pre-eminence among Callfornian In* -
stitutions of Stanford University.
Dr. Wilbur, In his opening remarks,
said first that U.B.C. is a typlonl
western university, and that bancs
he felt at home here. In reference
to th Freshman placards, he said lie >
enjoyed the opportunity of knowing '
so many students by their aotual
names. ,
After  a few other  humorous  re>
marks Dr. Wilbur struck the keypm, tM
of tils address by drawing attenttroyi*!
to the besetting curse of ignorance) m
in the  history  of  mankind.  "Ignor* A
ance," he said, "lying at the root ot ^
prejudice, superstition and dogma. 14
man's greatest curse, and the gtaa*'"f
task of education is warefare against '■*!
ignorance." j=|
He spoke of the biological prefc- ' \|
dices between races; and of the race- 'B
problems of the States—the self-oral* ''J
ted questions of the Indian and Netty %<f
He then referred to Pacific problems \
of which he makes a special study, Htsi J
question was  "Are  the race.       ""
dices on the Pacific Coast justifiedf A,
He pleaded for a reference to tbe his* - ■
tory of similar controversies on the
Atlantic coast Here, he believes, is
the responsibility of education—to
teach humanity to profit by experience, and thus to make progress possible.
Dr. Wilbur declared that one of the
problenu of humanity to-day Is to
preserve harmony in a world con*
stantly growing smaller through bet*
ter communication and expanding
population. The solution lies In an honest effort to comprehend the problems thus created and to solve them
To attain this end the Institute of
Pacific Relations was established
The first meeting waa held in Hon
olulu last summer. At this convention, no resolutions were passed; the
delegates merely met to try to appreciate each other's point of view
and to study Pacific problems with
toleration and   sympathy.
Dr. Wilbur closed his very inspiring
address with an earnest plea to the
students to do their part as they
live aud come in contact with prob- '
lems of the Pacific. The meeting
showed its appreciation by long and ''''«
hearty applause. Dr. Kllnck then
thanked Dr. Wilbur on behalf of the
University, and, in reference to the
questions which he had raised, men*
tioned the Pan-Pacific Congress at
which two of the University faculty,
Dean Brock and Dr. MacLean Fraser
will be delegates. After this, Dr.
Kllnck and Dr. Wilbur left the meeting for the Canadian Club luncheon,
at which Dr  Wilbur was to speak.
Dean Brock then took the chair
and introduced Dr. J. Merle Davis,
Secretary to the Pacific Council, Institute of Pacific Relations.
Dr. Davie first related some impressions which he had gathered In
his late circuit of the Pacific in connection with the Institute. Dr. Davis
said that the east and west have
beeome disillusioned since they have
bad a chance to study each other at
close range. When two such civilisations come In contact with eaoh other
there Is flrst, curiosity, then explana*
tatlon, and finally, either friendship
or hoaltilty. The oriental and occidental cultures have reached the critical
point when their relations henceforth
must be either friendly or hostile.

THE THREAT OF MODERN EDUCATION
Popular education is, as yet, a great failure; und indeed, will
never do more than make the majority of men only comparatively
literate. The modern educational system makes no provision for the
natural capabilities of those who submit themselves to it; and those
Who scqtlire good habits of mind do so not because of the system, but
in spite of it. It is true that general literature ia convenient in the
modern community; but the popular standards which it raises are
not iieeessarUy those which help men towards the living of a useful,
Contented life. Natural and economic difficulties in the way of the
student are actually a blessing; for they constitute an obstacle which
can be overcome only by those who are beBt fitted to use a higher
' education. There is a grave danger, that, by the lowering of these barriers, a university education will become popular; nnd in consequence
its value will disappear entirely.
INTERCOLLEGIATE COMPETITION
ffcis week two teams from the University of British Columbia
"toft to take part in intercollegiate competition. The one goes to the
Western Canada Intercollegiate Track Meet at Saskatoon, and the
Other to tho Western Canada Tennis Tournament at Edmonton. We
Wish the teams success and hope that they will return wearing the
laurel wreath of victory. We are confident that, however successful
they may be, they will enhance the record of the University, already
S high record, for good sportsmanship.
It is noteworthy that this year for the first time U. B. C. is participating in intercollegiate tennis. We believe that this will set a
precedent not for tennis only, but for other sports also. All intercollegiate competition is valuable nnd especially valuable is competition With other Canadian universities. That we know too little of
»|ster Canadian universities is a fact of which we are all cognizant.
That intercollegiate competition affords a means of gaining such
knowledge is a fact which has for some time now been recognized.
By such competition we may at the same time engage in friendly
rivalry, see just how universal the genus studentis is, and observe
how other universities meet and overcome their difficulties. This
competition, too, involving personal contact, does away with the possibility of misunderstanding. Certainly, if intercollegiate competition
does nothing else, it makes for general concord.
Educators Speak In
Auditorium
(Continued from Pago 1)
There must Inevitably, according to
Dr. Davis, be much I'rlel.ioti at first,
especially .since the civilization oi
the west is a comparatively younc;
one, ' while oriental clviltzatlou Is
thousands of years old. The impact
of Western culture on, for instance,
China, is the hardest thing China
has ever felt. Other outside Influences
have been absorbed—this one is
niuch too big to merge completely
with Chinese culture.
The white men entered China, as
Dr, Davis puts It, "on a basis of superiority," but that basis could not
be sustained after the Chinese had
learnt that white men are not consistent, that their religion and their
commercial practices are not both applied at once. The Chinese, on the
other hand, are consistent, and they
are growing contemptuous of the
fundamental hypocrisy of the West.
The East Is, hence, and quite reasonably, beginning to despise the West.
One Important point which the
speaker stressed is that the white
men should abandon "the crusading
habit" The East does not want to
be westernised. The West must enter
the Orient with the attitude of a
friend and adviser, otherwise harmony is Impossible.
Now, In the opinion of Dr. Davis,
white men are beginning to respect
Chinamen, and It is this common respect between the two cultures which
the Institute of Pacific Relations
seeks to foster. This organization
combats the fear, the prejudice, the
ignorance and the propaganda which
are working so destructively in the
Pacific to-day.
After suitably thanking Dr, Davis,
who was heartily applauded by tho '
audience, Dean Brock brought the
meeting to a close with the singing
of the National Anthem. Altogether,
this meeting was one of the ;r.ost
satisfactory and most inspiring ever
held within the precincts of our University.
Dr. Harris Describes
Discovery of Element
(Continued from Page 1)
to   he   correct,   inasmuch   nn   a   fnlnt
new hand occurred which Increased In
intensity us concentration was carried
out.
Final Success
The are spectra and the absorption
spectra then pointed to the presence
of some other element—but they alone
are not proof. Moseley, however, had
given us an Infallible method of not
only proving the presence of an element, but also of definitely showing
lust what element it should be.
He found that when the elements
are bombarded by cathode rays, they
emit an X radiation characteristic to
that particular element, and to that
one only. There is also a definite relationship between the number of the
element and the wave length of Us
Xray. Consequently the value for No.
61 could readily be calculated.
Just as in radio, we can tune In on
a certain wavelength, so it is with the
Xrays. We can detract them by means
of a crystal and by sotting the latter
at a definite angle only the characteristic wave length for element 61 can
be reflected onto a photographic plate,
After much difficulty a sot-up was
finally completed, with the result that
the X-radlatlon of element 61 was detected.
Element 61 Given Name
The   name   Illinium   was   selected,
meaning "metal of tho Illlnl," In honor
of the university  In  which  the  work
was completed.
It Is useless to attempt to predict
any uses for the now element. In tho
first place It must be Isolated In the
pure stale. After that will come the
search for uses. If, however, wo remember that a few years ago aluminum was a curiosity, and new a household necessity, and the everyday importance of Tungsten, Tantalum. Cor-
in in and other of the newer useful
elements, which but a few years ago
wore "freaks," it is quite safe to predict thnt some day Illinium will take
its place along with the other "useful" metals of the universe.

Editor the Ubyssey:
Dear Sir:
I would like to express my views on
the initiation of the '30 Frosh class,
and the spirit in which it was carried
out by the Sophomores.
These latter showed such a remarkable spirit that about one-half of their
class turned out for the fight on Saturday. This may be their idea of the true
class spirit.   It is not the Freshmen's,
Again, there was some mention of
ten to be bought by the losers. The
Freshmen, so far at least, have received no Invitation, I do not mention
(his for any love of tea for tea's saka
only, but we Freshmen would like to
seo the Sophomores lose with the
proper grace and spirit,
Lastly, In order to see this thing
done rightly, I recommend that those
Sophomores who did not turn out for
tho fight last Saturday, bear the trouble and expense of the tea. Please tell
them, Mr. Editor, to govern themselves accordingly In the future.
Yours very sincerely,
A FROSH.

have taken no definite form as yet,
several companies have been making
Inquiries at the University Lands
Department Office and seem to have
definitely in mind the erection of
apartments for student use sometime
In the near future. In every case inquiries have been made as to the
kind of accommodation that the
majority of students would desire.
These houses will be built on land
set asldo for this purpose and situated
just east and south of the Lands
Administration Office. As u result
these houses will be much more convenient than the method now In vogue
of students boarding in private homes.
Ail students interested in the
erection of these boarding houses,
especially out-of-town students who
will he most interested, are asked to
leave any suggestions which they consider of value in the plans ot these
apartments at the Lands Department
Office Students are asked to mark
the envelopes "Apartment House" for
convenience sake. They are especially requested to answer the following
questions as these are considered to
be of chief importance in making the
buildings as convenient as possible
for atudy:—
1. Do they prefer single or double
rooms?
2. What amount of board would they
be willing to pay?
3. Do they desire separate study
rooms or rooms in which two or
three may study at the same time?

G. L. ALLAN, Prop.
SHAKESPEARE NOT
LITERATURE!
Gentle reudor, we presume you to be
moro fumlllur with the modern motion
picture thun with the spoken play.
This condition Is, after nil, but natural; lor, youthful with the century,
you have heen accustomed from eurly
childhood to this cheaper form of entertainment, which relies, for tho evocation of emotional response, upon the
binocular channel of human sight, The
spoken play, on the other hand, takes
toll of the laughter and tears of Its
patrons by a two-fold appeal to eye
and ear; and does so hy using these
communications in varying proportions, Much of tbe emotional appeal
of such plays as Shakespeare's, (or
any of the Elizabethans), is made
through the eye; decidedly, at some
modern plays we would prefer deafness to blindness.
When a play Is read, it should be
read as a play, Not only should one
be conscious of the text, but also, by
employment of the imagination, of the
vlsualaction. Why not? The play was
originally written and planned so that,
when spoken, it should appeal to sight
and hearing; when then, It is properly
read, it should have a Bilent appeal ot
equal dual effect.
It Is then, in all probability, an
authentic error to read the text of a
play as pure literature when it was
never written with that end In view.
Those who refer to Shakespeare's
plays as "literature" should be
watched closely; they are apt to be
capable of selling wild-cat oil shares.
Shakespeare's plays were not written
as literature, purely; they were written by an actor-manager-producer who
Intended that they should be performed and make an eye-and-ear appeal, similar In principle (though not
In value), to the modern musical comedy. In short, the text ot a play Is to
the actual play no more thau the architect's plan Is to tho finished house.
In the text, you get the proportions,
the angles, the dimensions; in the performance, you nre given the human
touch of cretonne curtains at the windows. (Argument by anology Is, of
course, notoriously untrustworthy and
misleading; but if we have thus far
misled you, kind reader, by analogy,
we Intend now to mislead you further
by direct statement).
To be brief, then, let no man anywhere Impose upon you to the extent
of calling Shakespeare's plays literature. They are not. Moreover, ostracize him who makes a solemn literary
study, line by line, of Shakespeare's
text. A man so mlstnken In IiIh Judgments would Inevltnlilv take von for h
fool.

How to Behave at
Frosh Reception
The Freshmen reception Is intended
primarily to give the members of the
Freshmen class an opportunity to become acquainted with other members
of their own class and the upper years.
To this end, all Freshmen (both the
men and tho women), should do something or wear something which will
attract attention or "get by big," as
they say in Yankee land. The following are a few suggestions:
Wear your clothes backwards. This
has been found successful at the
Freshette Initiation.
Freshettes might wear odd stockings—even more odd than usual.
Wear one of the much-mooted gold
or silver wigs.
Wear calked hoots to prevent, slipping.
Wear overalls or a lab-coat If you
are not n Science man.
Go to sleep on one of the settees.
You will he recognized us an Eivno-
niies student.
Smoke a hookah. This Is the ono
means of Inhalation that has not been
tried by IT.B.C. students,
Commit u couple of murders. A
Freshman or two won't, make much
difference,
A row of cabbages or "Les petlts
clioiix"   Is   Doc.   Sedgewlck's   Idea   of
Arts '30.

Wanted—Fly swatters to swat flies
on the floor of Ap. Sc. 100.
Let There Be Lights
It was half-past nine on Tuesday
night. A student was at the loan
desk patiently waiting for his book
(o come from the caverns below. Several more were scattered about the
concourse, talking, laughing, poking,
reading, studying, and gaslng Into
space.
Suddenly—too suddenly, everything
was plunged In darkness! The lights
had gone out! Chaos reigned supreme.
The member of the Library staff who
was In the depths blindly groped about
with her hands; they closed on a book,
Snatching It, she stumbled up the
stairs to be met at the top by a valiant
youth who tried to light her path.
Alas, he only succeeded In burning his
finger-tips with underslsed matches.
The book she gave him was not the
one he wanted but that did not matter.
In the Concourse the steady seniors
and the reliable juniors struck match
after match In their despair. Stud*
ents hastily piled books In the darkness and others as hastily pushed them
over with groping hands. Those students who had books elsewhere in the
room put all this trust in their sense
of direction and barked their ankles
against table legs when they were not
falling over chairs.
At last some born louder shouted
"sit down, the lights will be on tn a
moment." Sit down they did—some in
chairs and some in places where they
thought chairs should be.
Silence reigned until some newly
Initiated freshette whispered loudly
"Ghosts."
Now the fiends of darkness began to
take their toll! People moved uneasily In their chairs and shuffled
their feet on the floor. Still the ltghtB
did not go on. A feminine voice
Hhrleked out of the abyss: "Me for
home.   I won't stay here all night!"
Suiting their actions to the words
students grasped books and papers and
fed In the general direction of the
stairs. Body hit body In the darkness
end books scattered over the floor.
On hands and knees they frantically
groped and picked them up. What
mattered It now If you now had f)ve
books Instead of four? Exchange
could be carried on to-morrow. But it
did matter when heads came into contact with table tops or other heads.
The stairs were too near for others
and It was discovered that two stairs
is quite a distance to fall when one
cannot see.
A light shot up from below—It Is
one of our uniformed groundsmen with
an electric torch. The situation Is
saved!
Students get to the basement safely
but since each student can not he in
both common rooms at once lie chooses to he In neither. The sumo mad
scramble over again. Men try to
cram number six huts on size seven
heads or lose themselves in bats that
are too large.
Others vainly try to. struggle Into
overcoats which are sizes too small
or miles too big.
More books are exchanged—but that
Is of no consequence.
Finally peace (and quiet) reigns.
Everyone Is now outside. Although It
Is dark, yet it Is not black and one can
af least avoid colllsons.
The refugees board the waiting bus
■and throughout the length of the ride
home they are busily calling out
names and then those who are the
objects of these pathetic appeals
lurch forward to retrieve their long
lost books.
The  crisis  was over.

Library,  on  Monday  afternoon.    The

ERUDITE PROFESSOR
SOLVES PROBLEM
Professor Gargle McHooch, world
famous authority on the solution ot
college difficulties, has propounded another brilliant scheme to be adopted
hy the University of British Columbia.
In another Interview with the "Ubyssey" he outlined his latest theory as
follows:
"This Is an age of efficiency In
evory phase of life, even In college.
BJverythlng must be used to advantage, and profit derived from even the
most unessential thing.
"While walking over the grassy
campus of the U.B.C. I noticed many
fair youths and damsels becomingly
adorned with green ties' and ribbons.
On every back was a square patch of
cloth, on which was printed In more or
less careful characters, a name, presumably that of tbe wearer.
"1 admired the progressive spirit of
advertising displayed by these young
students, but I also noticed that there
was a great deal of space left empty,
or spoiled by the inscription of ribald
remarks.
"It was then that I formed my latest
brilliant plan. Great wealth was being
lost to the Alma Mater Society simply
for the lack of such a genius as myself)
"The Idea, stated in its simplest
form, Is as follows: 'Why not sell advertising space on these placards?'"
The treasurer of the Alma Mater Society, assisted by the entire Business
Staff of the "Ubyssey," should carefully measure all the vacant space on
the freshmen's placards and form an
exact estimate of the area that could
be covered. In this connection the Department of Mathematics could give
valuable assistance.
The live business assistants ot the
"Ubyssey" staff could then get busy.
They would divide up the space and
prowl around town selling it to prominent business houses.
In addition, the Alma Mater Society
could compel the members of Arts '30
to wear nine or ten more placards
apiece. These also could he sold as
advertising space.
The result would be highly satisfactory from every point of view. From
a business aspect, these living advertisements would not fail to attract
attention wherever they went. From
a collegiate/ point of view it will increase the class spirit of Arts '30, for
who can doubt the benefits of even one
modest little sign apiece. Finally
from an aesthic viewpoint, it would
beautify the halls and campus of the
University to have a kaleidoscope of
marvellous colors moving to and fro.
If my plan Is carried out successfully the University will be full of
bright signs such as "Jo To Relieves
Stomach Misery," "Llsterine, Even
Your Best Friends Won't Tell You,"
"4X Bread," "(rilbev's Spey Roval "
and "The Kiddies Studio."

VARSITY TENNIS
STARS TRAVEL
TO ALBERTA
Gordon Shields, Harry Seed, Jeanne
Carlaw and Hope Looming, left last
night for Kdniouton to represent the
coa*t in the Western Canada Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament.
This Is probably the strongest inter*
collegiate team that has ever represented the University, as these players represent some of the finest talent available In the province. Shields
was third ranking player on tournament play In the province this year,
but on leaguo playing he deserved
a higher standing He has beaten
Jack MoOlll, flrst ranking player and
given the best in Canada and the
Northwest tough opposition.
Harry Seed Is one of the most brilliant junior players in the city and
holder of the Interior Juuior Singles
title. Jeanne Carlaw was ono of the
outstanding Junior girls at the Laurel
Tennis Club this year and Hope
Leeming, sister of Marjorie, the Can-
dlan champion, is among the first
ten ranking women in the province.
The combination of Shields and Seed
In the doubles and the showing of
both boys in the singles should bring
the first intercollegiate tennis championships to the coast institution.
Jeanne Carlaw will team with Shields
in the mixed doubles.
Previously Saskatchewan was to
have been brought to the coast, but
the trip of the Blue and Oold team
will give tennis the biggest boost it
has ever received. Mrs. J. J. Spencer
will act as chaperone of the party.
Canadian Rugby To
Play Vancouver Team
Varsity's first big Canadian football
fixture Is scheduled for Saturday
afternoon at Athletic Park when the
blue and gold twelve tangles with the
Vancouver team.
With two weeks intensive training
behind them the Canadian Rugby
squad goes into the fray a favorite.
Although Vancouver has so far tailed
to win a game, it will give stiff opposition.
The University of British Columbia,
which was trained last year under the
American rules and with American
methods, shows up well in competition.
After experiencing heavy Interference
play3, the Varsity squad should be
well able to face the end-to-end style
of   interference  of  Canadian   football.
Captain John Carrie, speedy quarter
back of last year's American squad,
will lead the team again this year, He
haa an able corps of assistants In the
backfleld in Cecil Newby, the hefty
full back, Frank Kunge, prairie star,
Tip Robertson, another stalwart who
has played before.
Aa it is the first game for the provincial championship, the Canadian
Rugby club hopes for a good attendance. Special arrangements have
been made for rooters.
The Varsity line is both heavy and
speedy. Man to man the line should
hold the Vancouver opposition.
Coach Burke has been drilling his
men on the fundamentals of the game
and they should be well able to
handle emergencies. Dr. Burke has
been assisted by Bill Rose and Dr.
Boucher of McOill's 1925 Varsity.
A special section has been arranged
for Varsity rooters with accommodation for 1,600. As this game is the
first for the provincial championship
solid support from the student body Is
requested.
Four Track Stars
Go To jtaskatoon
Four Varsity track stars left for
Saskatoon Thursday night to compete
in the annual Wostern Intercollegiate
Meet. They were "Brick" Pottlnger,
Charley Mottley, Tommy Burgess aud
Rex Brown. Mottley will compete In
the 440 and 880 yards, Brown broad
Jump nnd 100 yards, Pottlnger shot,
discus and hammer, Burgess in the
100, 220 and 440 yards.
Fot three years, 1928, 1924 and 1926,
the University of British Columbia
has had representation at the Western
meet, and in 1924 obtained unofficial
Becond place. Due to the tact that we
have never yet sent a full team to the
meet we cannot be counted in the
official ranking ot points, but every
year with the exception of 192S, a
team has been sent to assure a place
In the conference. The records for
the events which the local boys will
compete are among the best on the
record books.
Burgess and Brown will have a
10-1/10 mark in the 100 yards made
by Cohen of Manitoba in 1924, to attempt to shatter. The 220 mark waB
made by tho same runner and stands
at 22 seconds flat. The 440-yard mark
is 53-3/10, and made by Hutchison of
Saskatchewan. Mottley stands a good
chance of setting up a new mark in
this event and also a new mark in the
half-mllo. The half-mile mark is
2:02 3/6 seconds, held by Jack Murray of Alberta. Mottley's best mark
In the 440 yards Is 52 3/5 seconds, The
results of the meet will be available
Saturday night.
varsTtTmeets
stjaviours
After the Canadian Rugby game
scheduled to start at 2.30 p.m., the
Varsity First Division soccer team will
meet with St. Saviors.
This will be the University's third
fixture of the season, and should be a
good game, as Varsity men are gradually getting Into form, A win on Saturday will give the U. B. C. team a
fair start, and some Varsity support
would be a good stimulus.
Come out and see Keenleyslde,
Crute, Baker, Ledlngham, Phillips,
Emery, Warden, Mayers, Berto, Evans
and J. Emery, all members of tha soccer "Players' Club," represent the U,
B. C. against St. Saviours.

Tho Badminton Club will meet In
future every Saturday at eight p.m.,
In King Edward gymnasium, and Mondays and Thursdays from Ave to seven
p.m., at the Drill Hall, Prospective
members are asked to sign the lists
on thu notice boards in the Arts
Buildings. A club tournament will
probably be held soon to sort out new
material,
SECOND SOCCER LINEUP
Second Soccer Lineup: Anderson,
Wright, Warden, Swanson, Robertson,
Todd, Mlllor, Duffell, Qaudin, Wilkinson, Splllsbury, Stevenson, Dykstra.
Players are asked to watch the notice
boards for time and place of game.
In last week's Ubyssey, the statement was made that the Varsity
Women had a good chance of carrying off the championship. They have,
if they will only turn out to the
practices If, however, the girls come
out in as large numbers as they
have done so far, Varsity won't be
able to enter two teams. Monday,
there was a record attendance of
twelve, and although Wednesdays' attendance was greatly Improved It
certainly was not what It should
have been. There Is absolutely no
excuse for we now have a regular
coach, Mr. Sager, from South Vancouver. Even one try out has shown
the girls that he Is exceedingly efficient and will bring out the best
that Is in ihem, The teams are to be
chosen towards the end of next week
so If you want to make a team turn
out to the practices.
WOMEN'S GRASS HOCKEY
O, ye feminine grass hockeylsts!

Sedgewick ,Hon. President of the
class occupied the floor for a few
minutes, giving some suggestions
which were much appreciated. After
routine business was disposed of, the
