Late  Governor  Took  Active
Interest in University
Since its Formation
Since the last issue of the Ubyssey
the University has suffered the greatest loss since the passing oi its first
President. On the afternoon of the
second Sunday in December, after an
illness from which he appeared to
have almost fully recovered, Dr. S. D.
Scott was suddenly stricken and passed away.
The event was a great shock to a
very large circle of friends, not alone
in Vancouver, where he had resided
for the past thirteen years, but in his
native Maritime Province, where in
his early manhood he made a high
reputation in journalism, and in Ottawa, where he came in personal contact with, and won deserved respect
from, the leaders of public life of all
shades of political opinion. Education
and religion, journalism and public
life, alike are the poorer for his passing. He was modest, tolerant, and
wise, and accurately informed in wide
fields of knowledge; a counsellor and
confident of men who for a generation
have shaped the destinies of the Dominion. For many years his writings
did much to mould Canadian opinion;
his standards were of the highest, and
to these standards he adhered throughout a long and unblemished life. By
his death Canada loses a good and
great citizen.
The loss is particularly felt by all
connected with the University of British Columbia. Dr. Scott, was appointed to the Board of Governors when
the institution was first organized. He
was Chairman of the Staff and Organization Committee. He was also
(Continued on Page 2)
A new appointment has been made
to the University staff in the person
of Mr. Herbert-ZViears of London, England, as Professor and acting head of
the department of Mechanical Engineering. In 1915 Mr. Vicars took his
Master's degree in engineering at
Liverpool University proceeding with
his M. Sc. (1922) and his Ph. D. (1923)
at Birmingham, and gaining the distinction of Associate of the Institute
of Physics and Fellow of the Physical
Society in London. As a lecturer he
has had a wide experience at the University of London, Bristol College, at
the Royal Technical College, Glasgow,
and at the Birmingham University.
Besides these recommendations he has
had considerable experience in several designing firms at Stafford, and
has made frequent contributions to
Engineering periodicals.
Dr. Stafford will begin his lectures
within the course of the next three

First Soccer Team
To Play Victoria
When Ladysmith played Varsity for
the Provincial Soccer Championship
here last, year, they declared after the
game, that the university team gave
them a decidedly hard battle, and that
they were one of the most gentlemanly and most sportsmanlike teams they
had met.
That the Island teams think a good
deal of the Varsity team is proved by
letters received by President Brink of l
the Soccer Club requesting that the |
Blue and Gold play Nanaimo on New j
Year's Daj-. Victoria West, another |
first class team have asked that Varsity send a team to play them when
the Collegians make their annual invasion of the Capital City.
The Collegians are most anxious to
make the trip, but their league schedule may interfere with the game at
Victoria on Jan. 5. If, however, me
consent of the Lower Mainland Football Association can be obtained the
Soccer Club will go ahead with its
Ladysmith have also asked for a
game, but, with such a limited time at
their disposal it is doubtful if Varsity
will be able to make a third game.
The team picked for this trip is aa
follows:—Goal: Mosher, Backs: Crute
and Baker, Halves: Phillips, Buckley,
Wilkinson, Bryndolson, Huestis,
Shields, Forwards: Emery, Lundie,
Spares: Deans and Jackson. Tne
team will also be accompanied by
Professor Lloyd, coach, Wilbur Sparks,
trainer, and the president of'the club,
Murray Br:'.nk. Although Bobby Jackson is making the trip it is doubtful
if he will be able to play as he has
been out of the game for the greater
part of the year with an injured leg.
Follow The Birds
To Victoria
Ho! all ye would-be globe-tiotters!
Get the old carpet-bag out of its moth
balls, in the attic, and shake off the
dust for the annual trip to Victoria.
Pack up all your party clothes, because they put on a lot of dog at the
Saturday night dance they give for
us every year at the Empress, and
bring all your Christmas presents to
show them to the gang. Here's hoping
that Santa Claus brings you a small
portion of the coin of the realm;
you'll need about fifteen dollars. Less
will do if you can train yourself to go
without, food. It's only from Friday
morning to Sunday night, anyway, and
of course if you start tomorrow you
might get over in a row-boat, and save
on the boat fare. When you come to
think the matter over, it, can be done
for nothing, but to be perfectly safe
one should take some small change,
if only to tip the policeman who tells
you to keep moving—for, of course,
you would be economizing by sitting
up all night.
Coax your Dad to fork over and buy
your ticket as soon as possible, from
the Students' Council. Weenc hopes
to see you there. Look for him at the
dance at the Empress. He wilt wear
a dress suit, so you can't make a mistake.
Christmas exam results will be
given out from the Registrar's office
early in January, or as soon as approved by the Faculty and Ser.ate.
Cards entitling students to boat
tickets at reduced rates will be given
out at the wharf on Jan. 4 by Jap.

Varsity captured the Miller Cup on
Dec. 8, when they cam(T~frDra—behind
and wound up the game with the
Scullers on the short end of an S6
Within five minutes of the start,
"Buck" Buchanan made it 3-0 for Varsity. Gwyther failed to convert.
Winch kicked to Domoney, who gained twenty yards. Grimmet secured
the ball, was bluffed by the collegians' full, and kicked to touch. Winch
secured the ball from the throw-in,
looked dangerous, but was dropped
nicely by Palmer, Teriian stopped
Grimmet on Varsity's, five-yard line.
The Oarsmen's chances were again
spoiled a few minutes later by a
knock-on. Pinkham got through, only
to be dropped by Domoney. Pinkham
got away a few minutes later and
passed to Rex Cameron, who tied the
score, 3-3. From the kick-off Domcney
returned and made some forty yards.
A run by Brock, Buchanan, and Ternan was killed by a knock-on.
Within five minutes of the i^surap-
tion of play, Pinkham put the Rowing Club three up with a pretty field
goal take from a mark. Winch was
dangerous, passed two men. but was
grassed on a shoe-string tackle by
Purdy. Barwis and Domoney interchanged punts, in which the Varsity
full had the edge. The Collegians
pressed. Purdy's attempt to make a
field goal was blocked. The Club
dribbled up the field, but Underwood
fell on the ball. Twelve minutes to
go:     Varsity  3, Rowing Club 6.
The Varsity were forced back to
their own line. Ternan. got the ball
from the scrum and passed to Warren, who sped up the field, closely pursued by George Thom. Barwis almost
forced Warren to touch, hut the Collegian kept on the field, and amidst.
intense excitement fell on the ball behind the posts. Gwyther made an
easy convert, ending the scoring. Varsity  8.     The  Club 6.
Varsity has one more game to play
in this series. Should they lose, it
will not affect their league standing.
As the games with Stanford are
definitely called off, the Rugby Union
has decided that Varsity shall meet
Vancouver on Dec. 25. This is THE
BIG GAME of the year, and a large
crowd is expected to be on hand.
Fifteen picked men are representing Varsity on that day. The support that the other eleven hundred
odd can give them would be the best
sort of Xmas gift. How about it,

Honorary Secretary of Board of Governors and during ten years missed
but one meeting of that body. The
six volumes of minutes, recording the
actions of the Board for the first decade of the University's existence,
constitute one of many lasting monuments to his efficiency and self-sacrificing devotion to the cause of higher
education  in  British  Columbia.
He was Chairman of the Board of
Directors of Ryerson College and a
member of the governing body of Columbian College, New Westminster,
and was one of the honored and active officials of Mount Pleasant
Methodist Church.
Dr. Scott's life is a fine inspiration
to university students who rely largely or wholly on their own efforts to
secure an education. He worked his
way through Mount Allison College,
of which he afterwards became a
Regent, and which ten years ago honored him with an LL.D. degree. As an
undergraduate he was editor of the
college paper, "Argosy," which fact
largely determined his future career.
"The Week End" will be greatly missed in Saturday's "Province," by those
interested in literature, and in Dr.
Scott's great store of personal political reminiscences.
Two of Dr. Scott's sons, Gordon and
Morely, are graduates of the University of British Columbia; to them, to
Mrs. Scott, and to the other members
of the family, the Ubyssey, on behalf
of the members of the Faculty and
Staff and Student Body, extend their
sincerest sympathy.
We are pleased to notice among tiie
returns of the Business Educators' Association of Canada the names of
auite a number of our old friends, who
have succeeded in securing the diploma of this association. We under-
Ki.anc1 from the management of the
school they have been attending that

ni.'iifnly examinations during its pa;;t

tl'is means they will obtain employment almost immediately and become
self-supporting eitizens. The Sprott-
Shaw School which we understand is
the pioneer member west of Vvi.i.iipe?
of the Business Educators' Association
is, indeed, to be congratulated.
The Sprott-Shaw way is the way
that pays. All Vancouver Sprott-
Shaw Schools open in all departments
on  January  3rd.
S. C. M.   TO  HOLD
A conference for students is being
planned by the local unit of the S. C.
M. Three main topics are to be con
sidered, "Christianity and Higher Education," "Christianity and the Race
Problem, "Christianity and Industry." Each subject, will be introduced by two or more speakers, so
that there will be abundant matter to
examine and question. The conference is not to consist of a course of
lectures however, it is a student conference where every one will have the
opportunity to express freely and fully
his particular views, and share in this
investigation into the merits of
Christianity as a possible clue to these
problems. Are Christ's teachings but
a collection of absurd ideas, or on the
contrary sound and practicable principles of life? Have they ever been
vigorously applied and ^hus tested?
Are they rightly interpreted or fundamentally hollow? Such questions will
probably receive a double answer, yet
it is to be hoped that on neither side
will there be any tendency to dogmatise. If the Christian ideals have
no place in the lives of some students, at this conference they will be
able to offer different suggestions and
ideas to those who have some faith
in  their feasibility.
No definite conclusions may be
reached, but yet the conference will
be of value to all present, for they
will become acquainted with the
thought life of their fellows.

gave the Dockers the game, 2-1.
Within ten minutes Lundie evened
up the score when he beat Robinson

There was no score in the second
half, both teams fighting hard to secure additional goals, when the final
whistle  stopped  play.
The weakened Kitsilano eleven
were no match for Varsity, when
these teams met on December 8, Varsity winning 7-0. The surburbanites
fielded eight men and later increased
their forces by two. Jackson, playing for the first time in weeks, hurt
his leg early in the game and retired.
This made things a little more even,
but even so the Collegians piled up a
record score.
Lundie sagged the net for four goals,
Wilkinson for two, while Phillips added another one. The game was listless and far below tlie standard of

In the game of Dec. 3, Varsity Senior A basketball team demonstrated
that it is" going to be a big factor in
the league race, holding the Sons
down to 'Mght points in the initial
half. Kenny Carlisle at center, Grauer
and Gord. Lewis at guard, checked
their men to a standstill, and the famous Native Sons' combination could
not   get   going.
Tan. Bu ler starred with six points,
while Les. Bickell played a strenuous
game for Varsity on the forward line.
The Sons left, their shooting eyes at
home and missed regularly. They
could not work the ball beneath the
basket, and resorted to a great deal
of long distance shooting that did not
pay. Hany Johnson was top scorer
for the home-brews, with nine points.
Boyes worked like a Trojan, and
Mattock set. a cyclonic pace in the last
half. Les. Bickell's basket put the
Varsity ahead after the score had been
tied several times. Varsity won, 18-

Varsity basketballers proved too

The turning year has again brought
us round to the Season of Peace and
We celebrate the season amid circumstances strangely different from
those who heard. ,the' Angel Song —
from the simple shepherds who listened with reverent astonishment to the
celestial proclamation, from the Wise
Men who saw His- star in the east,
and came to worship Him. The lights
of Granville and Hastings Streets have
little suggestion of the glory that
kept watch, over the manger at Bethlehem, and our eager, bustling, gift-
Buying crowds have little in common
with those who brought gold, frankincense and myrrh to the Hope of Humanity.
But the inner significance of Christmas has ever been, and ever will be,
the same. The historic fact commemorated in the Holy Week, the
spiritual inheritance of which it annually reminds us, fill the hearts of all
with the warmth of hope and charity.
A child was born in the cattle barn
Of a village inn, and through the spirit
of love and service 'He became "the
light of the world," never so bright
as now. He'lived, to lift men to higher levels of inner life. His mission
was to heal and hot to wound. His
mind and spirit were open to every
aspect of human living—its perplexity and mystery, its suffering and sorrow, its beauty and strength. The
wisest and deepest of all the philosophers, a gentleman and a sportsman,
a teacher and a king. He radiated life
and gave peace, not alone to His little
circle of friends and followers nineteen centuries ago, but to countless
multitudes in the long generations
from then td now.
Christmas is the great Festival of
Hope. The Star of Bethlehem still
shines. Men and women the world
over can, if they will, set their faces
towards its beams, and go forward
with its light in their eyes.

During the past session, for the first
time, definite steps have been taken
to eliminate as far as possible the annual Christmas exodus. Previously,
the expulsion of many members of the
freshman class has resulted from their
failure to use a proper sense of perspective in considering the various'
phases of university life. The addresses given by student leaders to
Arts '27 outlined the branches of student activity and emphasized their
relative importance. The result of
these and other measures of freshman
discipline should be that many of the
unwary but well-intentioned members
of th,' class will be saved the necessity of lepeating their year. It is to
this Ivpe of student only that any
consideration should be given. The
departure of students majoring in
sport or social life should be heartily
welcomed by the student body. We
hope that the number of students concerned this year will be confined almost entirely to this latter class.
The Victoria trip — What does it
mean to you?    Are you going?
All those who have been on the
trip before are going again. They
know what fun is in store for them—
and they evidently don't want to miss
it.    Do you?
Why not ask Santa in that Xmas
letter: "Please, dear Santa Claus, give
me a trip to Victoria for my very best
Xmas present." And Santa wouldn't
have you miss that trip for the world.
And   no   more   would   I!
Wouldn't you like to spend a weekend in the company of your best
friends? Then    go     to    Victoria!
Wouldn't you like to see our "big

go to Victoria and help them!
With generous loyalty to high values
in their lives, with compassion and
charity to all in their hearts — and
not least to those who, in their sense
of social and human injustice, lift
voices in disturbing protest at a world
still in need of regeneration—with a
desire for helpful service to any and
all, it is still possible to hear in the
heart a song that is an echo of one

Editor  "The  Ubyssey."
Dear Sir: Another suggestion about
the Library problem. It would be a
good thing, now the exams, are so near,
if the tables were reserved for those
wishing to study, while magazine readers be asked to stand near the door.
It is very annoying for anyone wishing to use the tables to find them all
occupied oy such persons, who seem to
have unlimited time to read the "Scientific American" and other periodicals.
We who study sometimes need the
tables; please give us a chance.
Money is not so tight at Christmas.
It is therefore logical to assume that
everyone is going to have a lot to
spend on the annual Victoria trip. Seriously speaking, the whole trip
should not cost more than $15. For
the benefit of those who have not
been to the Capital City an expense
list  is  hereto  appended:
Boat tickets (return)  $3.40
Hotel   (2  days)     3.00
Meals     4.50
Basketball dance  25
Empress  dance     1.00
Rugby game   50
Swimming   meet    50
Miscellaneous     1.85
Total    $15.00
We culled the following from the
local towel, and are therefore running
it in our rag.
Will all those who owe us money
and know it, please call and settle?
Will all those who owe us money and
don't know it, please call and be convinced. Will those who owe us money
and don't call please stop in one place
long enough for us to get to them.

Saints in Soccer
The Varsity first soccer team are
fast becoming an exclusive aggregation, besides having to show marked
ability as a player it is now becoming
necessary that future members of
the team become ordained. Hence Lie
work of Messrs. Lloyd, Arnott and
Brinks of the selection committee is
much simplified. There is no doubt
about it that our eleven are a holy
outfit. Not satisfied with having three
fully fledged ministers on their line
up, namely: Scotty Deans, Eb. Crute
and Lorrimer Baker, we also have
Tommy Wilkinson, Les Buckley and
Gordon Huestis all ministers sons, in
So that his son Jock might not be
entirely out-classed by his team mates
in this regard. Pa Lundie is officiating
as a sunday school teacher. Although
it would be hard to say how often
other members of the team, Mosher,
Emery, Jackson, Phillips, Shields,
Bryndoldson and Ternan attend
church, nevertheless it is a safe bet
that our eleven should not be in need
of any divine aid. Although the
trainer, Sparks is not (as far as we
know) a minister, or the son of one,
his name implies that he is pretty hot
Two of our last years graduates who
have now left the team. Johnny McLeod and Rex Cameron were also sons
of ministers, hence we owe a debt of
gratitude to the two other ministers
sons, Huestis and Wilkinson who replaced them to keep up the piety of
the team as well as the scoring average.

Determined to reform the University
at once and at all cost, the Students'

and appointed as a special police force
the grads., Hank (Stew) Southon, and
the seniors. These men and women
will, at their own request, nobly suppress the freshies. Acting under the
leadership of the one and only Lloyd
Lester Baynes, S.A.P., they are doing
good work, and the reporter informs
us that there is but little opposition
to their schemes.

by Judge John Artaxerxes Grant and
sentenced to listen to one of Magistrate Cross' speeches on ethics and
economics, as opposed to comparative
religion. The unfortunate animal has
committed  suicide.
The most promising event is the announcement, by Mr. Detective Brunn

will be arrested on request. Sergeant

A desperate criminal, giving the
name of Murray Hunter, has been arrested on a murder charge, in connection with the recent strangulation
of a hot dog. The arrest was the
work of Detectives Shore and Wolverton.
On Thursday last, Magistrates Burton and Hodgson sentenced a man on
their own force to read all the reference books in Government 1. The
charge was stealing a fountain pen.

to see if we can collect any blackmail
off him.

Mr. Gass has been hit with an idea
(don't worry, freshettes, he hit it
right back). It is this. During his
sojourn at this so-called institution
of learning, he has been compelled to
listen to Walt Hodgson talk on comparative advantage. Now the idea is
this. Why not apply the idea to exams.? Without a doubt people like
Mr. Gass and certain freshmen are
more in actual need of a university
education than what are known as
scholarship students. The marginal
utility of the knowledge acquired is
greater to the Xmas graduate than to
the bookworm. Therefore would it
not be the part of wisdom to give
scholarships to the thirty lowest students, and to kick out the thirty highest? We trust that the Faculty will
act on our recommendation, as we
need the money.

An Article on the Whyness of
the What
Psycho-analysis has conferred at
least one great blessing upon humanity: it has given new and attractive
names to things which had always
appeared rather trivial or even disagreeable. You must admit that the
word "complex" is superior in every
way to "ornery." This new nomenclature has thus become a powerful
force to restore the self-respect of
humanity. For instance, in primitive
days, if you announced to your fellows that you had dreamed of being
chased by a blue leopard with pink
eyes, the elders of the tribe sat in
judgment upon you, and, coming to
the conclusion that you had offended
the gods, they delivered you over to
the witch-doctor, who pounded you
with a club until you felt normal. If
you had such a dream in modern
times, people at once asked the unsympathetic question, "What had you
been eating?" But when the psychoanalysts came along you had a reason
ready that was both dignified and
satisfying. Freud substituted ancestors and instincts for indigestion. Your
sub-conscious self found a place in
your conversation. That blue leopard, for example, was the symbol of
some suppressed desire, a sign that
you were in the iron hand of destiny.
It proved that you had a secret sorrow, for people who are perfectly happy do not dream about blue leopards.
But the best thing of all is the dual
personality. In the first place, if the
You of today is not necessarily the
You of yesterday, it relieves you of
the obligation of being consistent,
and gives you the chance to display
a little versatility. If you make any
blunder, you have always that Other
Self for a scapegoat. Passing the
buck thus becomes a science. Till
now, it has been only an art.
Of course, you must remember that
the dual personality is entirely a psychic affair. In spite of material laws,
your two selves can occupy the same
place at the same time. If you fail to
grasp this, you will soon arrive at
the mental state of a certain Freudian, who by too much introspection
and by his too great radiness to jump
to conclusions, came to believe that
he was twins, and refused to accept
any invitation unless it was sent in
Which, as  Euclid  says, is  absurd.

Sophs Orate in
Locker  Rooms
Many Words but Little Thought
During the past week the men's
common room and lockers have been
the scene of many heated arguments.
All types of subjects have been discussed and various conclusions have
been reached. It has been exceedingly interesting to visit the lockers and
to observe the noisy crowds of good-
tempered students, which have gathered there. The corridors proved too
small to accommodate the crowds,
hence late-comers were compelled to
scramble for seats on tlie top of the
lockers. So much interest in debatable topics is praiseworthy in a university, and it is gratifying to notice
that discussion has been so general.
Almost every student seemed to have
some contribution to make, although
in some cases this contribution was
only in the form of irrelevant remarks.
Among those students who have been
prominent in the discussions may be
mentioned W. Chalmers and N. Na-
kano. About these two one has been
almost certain to find an argumentative throng.

Benny Leonard, recognized as the
cleanest little sport in the fight game
today, and incidentally the greatest
lightweight champion the world has
known, is in the spotlight at the
Orpheum this week. The champion is
here with an act made up of popular
bits from the big Winter Garden success in New York. It is a very pleasing melange of comedy, dancing, music
and some boxing. Leonard is a clean-
cut, personable and likeable young
chap and does not look at all like the
great fighter he has proven himself to
The bill is made up of seven especially good vaudeville acts and runs
strongly to comedy.
The Orpheum specially announces
that next week's vaudeville show will
open one day earlier than usual in
order to accommodate out-of-town visitors seeking amusement. It will start
on Tuesday night instead of Wednesday, and there will therefore be four
daily matinees for the balance of the
week instead of the usual three. The
bill is a "peppy" holiday offering,
featuring Enid Markey & Co., Margaret Young, Rockwell & Fox, Arnaut
Brothers, Danny Duggan & Co., Stone

orchestra. It is a bill sure to please

The Canadian Extension University
of Vancouver has obtained the services of the Rev. W. T^Keeling to take
charge   of   the   Senior   Matriculation
class that is to be started in January
for  the   express  purpose   of  assisting
those    students    who    failed in their
First Year's examinations   to   re-gain
their  lost  standard  by enabling them j
to   sit   for  their   Senior   Matriculation j
examinations   in   June   next   so   as   to j
allow  them to re-enter  the  U.  B.   C.
next   year   as   second   year   students. I
Mr.  Keeling was  a  Scholar  of  Jesus !
College, Cambridge and for some time I
Headmaster of Warwick School.    He !
has   had   a   very  wide   and   extensive
educational   experience   both   in   Can-1
ac'a  and  in  England and  there  is  no
one better qualified or able to handle
the   coaching  of  these   students   than
he.    The class will be strictly limited
in number and those students desirous
of availing themselves of this opportunity should lose no time in enrolling.
The C. E. TJ. is also operating classes
in commercial subjects for those who
desire to obtain a  business or secretarial training.    A phone call to Seymour 2906 will secure an appointment
with the Principal.
