BIG FOUR RUGGERS
TO MEET VICTORIA
To-night Varsity's Big Four Canadian Rugby squad will embark for
Victoria to trade blows with the
Sleepy City representatives at 2:30
Saturday afternoon at the Royal Ath-
Sitlc grounds. Besides Coaches Norm
urley and Dr. Gordon Burke, eighteen men will be making the trip.
These will probably be Smith, Watson,
Hall, Camossi, Pearce, Jackson, V.
Odium (captain), Cummlngs, Duncan,
Coleman, Berto, Qittus, Wentworth,
Shields, Grauer, Dirom, Dickson, Oil-
landers.
In spite of last week's casualties In
the Vancouver game, the boys are all
in good shape. They have turned out
three mornings this week and had
strenuous workouts with the Intermediate team.
Little ls known about the Victoria
line-up except Inadequate rumors
which suggest that the Capitals are
putting up tougher opposition every
game. Vancouver disposed of them
with a 12*6 score but the Island men
piled up 16 against Westminster's 3,
so any forecast as to the outcome of
Saturday's event ls uncertain. The
Blue and Gold looks good, with an
aggregate of 43 points in two games
and none scored against them.
DEBATES UNION NOW
RECOGNIZED
Debate witb "SioOritnlcil Glib" Plumed
On Monday, Ootober 14, the students' Council officially recognized
"Debates Union" as a student organisation. The Union is the only debating Club in the University, having
a limited membership of thirty men
and women chosen by their forensic
ability.
The Union held its first meeting,
attended by most of the Club, on
Thursday. Professor Harvey was elected Honorary President, Paul Murphy,
who is also Debates-Manager was
elected President, Betty Moore, Vice-
President and Charles Gillespie, Secretary-Treasurer.
The main business discussed at the
meeting was a debate with the members of the "Sun Oratory Club,"
which ls to take place on the twenty-
third of next month. Tryoutn for this
debate will be held In Arts 100 on
Monday. They will consist of a five
minute speech on the subject, "Resolved thnt the plea of temporary Insanity In the defense of crime should
be abolished." Two speakers, one
man, and one woman are to be chosen.
Members are advised that should they
miss two consecutive meetings, they
will automatically be dropped from
membership.
Producer of Shaw's
Plays to Address
U.B.C. Students
University students will be no
doubt greatly pleased to learn that
Mr. Colbourne, who Is directing the
tour of the theatrical company playing George Bernard Shaw's plays
throughout Canada, wtll address those
interested on Tuesday at noon in Arts
100. Not only his long aqttaintance
with the theatre ln general, but his
particular familiarity with the plays
of Shaw that has been founded upon
an intimate friendship with that playwright, promises to afford those
attending a most interesting address.
Anyone who 1H at all interested in the
drama or In more or less contemporary literature cannot miss this great
opportunity to Increase his knowledge.
The executive of the Literary and
Scientific Executive are also trying
to arrange to havo the Hart House
String Quurtet and the Glee Club of
the College of Puget Sound give concert-recitals, and will endeavor In so
far as It lies In their power to secure
interesting speakers throughout the
student year.

Dr. Sedgewick Discusses
The Changing ef Morality
At the flrat meeting of the Student
Christian Movement In the Agricultural Building, Tuesday, Dr. Sedgewick
gave an address on "The Changing
of Morality." Mr, Harold Fullerton
opened the meeting with the announcement that a retreat will be held
beginning this Saturday afternoon
and ending the following Sunday
evening- Mr. Eugene Cassidy introduced Vt. Sedgewlok,
The latter opened his lecture with
a reference to the debate which Is being fought out by youth and the older generation on present-day morals.
In his opinion the truth lies somewhere between the two attitudes.
"Life is always changing," he said,
"and though some good things are
gone forever with the old order, there
are other good things coming with
the new."
The difference between the old and
new beauty as presented in literature
and art is that each generation looks
on life from a different point of view,
and thus the art of reproducing perfectly what previous ages have created ls gone with the passing of time.
Therefor© the present generation
cannot be expected to pattern its 1-
deas of right and wrong on those of
previous centuries, for "-The furnishings of our minds are different, though
they are the same in principle: and
just as our attitude to crime has
shitted according to what modern
scientists say, so has morality shifted
with it." Moreover, morality has always been based on whatever customs
were convenient for the masses; and
this being the case, Dr. Sedgewick's
concluding advice was: "Open your
eyes and learn all you can, know the
truth whether it is pleasant or not.
It is your duty to try to correct the
faults of the world you live ln by
new methods since the old methods
have failed. That is why I believe
the new World Is going to be better
and certainly different, In many respects, from mine."
The meeting was closed by Mr.
Fullerton with a vote of thanks to
Dr.  Sedgewick.
UeBeCe Geologists
Reecive High Praise
In a recent issue of "Scionce" Mr.
A. F. Buddlngton of Princeton University, writing ori the question of
presenting geology in a more popular
form to 'he general public, speaks In
terms of high praise about the I'niverslty <>f British Columbia. Part of
his text follows.
"At the present time the University
of British Columbia has an outstanding record |n North America for the
number of its graduates who have
proceeded to advanced work in geology during the last few years. At my
request I>r. S. J. Schofleld furnished
me with a list of them which shows
that during the last six years twenty-
seven graduates of British Columbia
havo taken or are taking graduate
work in geology, and that twenty-
three of these have taken or are
studying for the doctor's degree in
geology- In order to ascertain the
causes of this success, I asked a
number of these men how they explained it and their answers are
summarized in the following comment.
"1. Environment is an important
factor. Hrltlsh Columbia ls still
largely in a pioneer state with great
undeveloped mineral resources, and a
consequent respect In the community
for the geologist. It Is a mountainous
country with a corresponding attraction for youth, as one man expressed
it. "The rising generation grasps
more readily at. n prospecting stick
than n brief case, and leans more
toward a transit than a golf club;
there is an appeal to wander over the
rugged Peaks of the Cordilleras
rather 't'aii languish on an office

The honor system, which depends upon the honor of the individual

continue to be enforced during the coming year. This decision was reached
at a meeting of the Alma Mater Society held in the Auditorium, Wednesday
noon.
President J. Ross Tolmie then brought up the more important business
of the meeting in the following resolution.

OARSMEN TO MEET
ENGLISH RUGGERS
Varsity ti Tli for Second Place In
Miller Cap if Vlctorioas
The English Rugby Seniors went
through a strenuous practice Wednesday afternoon preparatory to their big
game Saturday, when the team meets
the Rowing Club on the Brockton
Point Oval at 3:16, If the fellows perform with the same speed and aggressiveness on Saturday as they showed
at practise, they should have little
difficulty In disposing of the Rowers.
Varsity needs this game to tie for
second place in the Miller Cup race
and the Oarsmen are equally desirous of victory. The Club will be at
top strength with all its regulars back
again and George Klngsley recovered
from the injuries he received last
Saturday. Jack Richardson who played McKechnie Cup rugby for Varsity
last year is on the Rowing Club three-
quarter line and will take a lot of
watching.
Roger Wilson and "Gunboat" 8parks
will be back ln the line-up Saturday.
Sparks Is still a bit heavy on his
feet, but Wilson is right on his toes.
He was feeling his oats at the practise Wednesday, playfully bringing
fellows down and rubbing their noses
in the mud. Ably assisted by such
men as Foerster, Murray< Sparks, Farrls and Fraser, he should be able to
more than hold the Oarsmen's forwards.
Locke ls playing in his twoyear-ago
form and has been shifted to five-
eighths where he will huve more opportunities.
So many men have been showing up
well that coach Trywhltt and Captain
Willis are having difficulty In picking
the fifteen. The Varsity team will be
select'id from Alpln, P, Barratt, Estabrook, Cotterell, Wllles, Fell, Ford,
Locke, II. Barratt, Sparks, Foerester,
Murray, Farrls, Wilson, Simpson,
Fraser, Mason, Player.

order and the protection of buildings,
grounds, and properties, within the
University precincts. This is to ln*
elude the fire regulations, prohibiting

Third:— that the standing com*

Fourth:—that tho Students' Council shall sit as a court before which
any students may be called to account
for misdemeanor.
Fifth:—that the present system of
fines be used to maintain discipline
in tho Library.
Mr. Tolmie then stated that although tho Council had at the last
meeting been of the opinion that the
honor system had proved Inadequate,
they had since come to the opinion
that lt had not been given a full and
thorough trial,
"We think," said the President,
"that the student was not sufficiently
aware of his Individual duty to act
In a manner befitting his responsible
position. We are convinced that he
wishes to act decently and ln an orderly manner, that he can realize his obligation, and that he will endeavor to
fulfil It. But he ts liable to forget
unless he ts sufficiently impressed

Council Passes
Club Budgets
The budgets of the various athletic
clubs occupied most of the time of
tho Student's Council at Its regular
meeting on Monday evening. Delegates to the P.I.P.A. conference, and
assessment of women for athletic
equipment were tho other questions
discussed.
The general policy of Council * in
passing the budgets was to fully
equip the flrst teams In al! sports.
Among tho budgets granted were
those of Women's Undergraduate,
$126.80; Badminton Cluh, llftft.00;
Boxing Club, 1100.00; Gymnasium

Hockev, $71.30; Women's Grass
Hockey, $54.55;   Soccer Club, $334.00.
No delegates will be sent to the
P.I.P.A. conference was the decision
of council, acting on the advice of the
Publication's Board Ihat the money
could be better spent lu advancing
other work of tho Board.
The question of assessing caution
money from women engaged in athletics was considered by Council.
Finally It was decided that women
playing Basketball should forfeit the
sum of $8,0<) while those engaged In
Grass Hockey should be charged $2.00.
Permission was granted the Student's Christian Fundamentalist Society to change their name to the

Varsity Courses Planned
for Benefit of Public
Desiring to take courses In English
13 and Government Finance, some
thirty-five men and women met to
discuss matters in Arts 100 at 5:15
Monday afternoon.
This course is not related to the
regular summer courses, but is an
Innovation, under the direction of Dr.
Weir, for the benefit of teachers and
others in Greater Vancouver who
wish to continue with third and fourth
year courses.
Professors F. H. Wilcox and S. E.
Beckett conducted the meeting. Professor Beckett explained the requirements and arrangement of classes.
Difficulty was encountered ln settling the matter of prerequisites for
the two courses. The question was
raised as to whether it were possible
to take tho courses without having
completed second year or without
having the necessary prerequisite.
Professor Beckett was unable to
answer the question and referred it
to a later meeting.
It was moved by Mr. Patterson and
seconded by Mr. Galnley that the
standing committee of investigation,
Messrs.* Burnett and Grelght, interview Or. Weir and Mr. Mathews at 4
o'clock Tuesday, regarding the questions talsed about the courses. The
Information obtained was lo be made
public at u general meeting at 5
o'clock the same day. The motion
carried and the meeting adjourned.
•   *   *
A special course In English 13 for
non-members of the University was
organized at a second meeting held
on Tuesday at 5 p.m. Arrangements
for a similar course ln Economics 6
aro expected to be completed In the
near future.
University students are permitted
to attend these courses If they wish.

HONOR SYSTEM
The Students of the university have endorsed the Honor
system! In other words they have decided to conduct themselves
as university students who can be trusted to act in the best
Interests of their university. We congratulate the students on
their decision, for it ls a declaration that each individual student
is willing to accept his responsibility as a member of the University of British Columbia. It means that students are prepared
to sacrifice what might be mis-named as "personal pleasure"
when this so-called personal pleasure is harmful to their Alma
Mater, and that students will at all times be prepared to answer
for their actions to the University as a whole.
Moreover, the Honor systom has been endorsed unanimously, without discrimination or unnecessary qualification,— a
glorious victory for Democracy.
Now it is up to us to follow up that victory with other
victories, and not let this victory be a cause of a worse defeat.
For Instance, we were told at the meeting Wednesday that
the Faculty Committee on student' affairs has the final say as
to whether the Students' Court shall sit as an open or closed
court. We maintain that if, as individuals, we can prove the
Honor system is a success then the Faculty Committee will
neither desire nor dare to dictate our policy. If, on the other
hand we fall to uphold the Honor system, then we shall lose
the privileges we already possess.
In short, we have said the Honor system is a success. Now
we must prove it.
»        »        « a       a       a
One question that presents itself Immediately Is that of
paying athletic coaches. Already, it is explained, one of the best
coaches the University has ever had has withdrawn his services,
which means a loss to the University.
Can we, as upholders of the Honor Bystem, say that we are
acting according to that system when we equip our first teams
at the expense of athletic coaches? Obviously, since Students'
Council has adopted this policy, it is up to us to change it if it
is not according to the Honor system.
We should suggest that if there is to be any change in the
policy, the flrst move come from members of athletic teams
who are to benefit at the expense of coaches. Then if tho
University sees these players are willing to sacrifice free equipment in order to help athletic activity, we feel satisfied that the
University will see to it that no team is too heavily penalized
financially.
HEALTH CENTRE
To those students who are attendng the University for the
first time we wish to recommend a recently established organization which can he to a!) -and indeed to the majority is of
the greatest benefit.
Last year a Health centre under the supervision of a trained
nurse was installed in Room 30l> of the Auditorium Building.
All students who feel indisposed or who have suffered injuries
in athletics or in any other way are attended to free of charge
at the Health Centre, which is dally increasing in popularity.
Ever since this organization for the care of student health was
instituted it has proved of the greatest benefit, not only in the
matter of cure but also in the prevention of epidemics of a
serious nature.
To those who instituted what has, in so short a time, become
such an indispensible factor in our University and to those who
have so ably developed the Health Centre to Its present flourishing condition we would, as representatives of the student body,
express our heartiest appreciation.
A SU8E8TI0N
Amidst the varied interests and duties which occupy students during the first few weeks of the term they are apt to
forget the words which were spoken by candidates for student
offices at the end of last term. On of those ideas expressed in
the spring we wish again to bring to the notice of the Student
Body—that of the re-organization of student offices.
It has been felt that the Importance of the work of certain
offices is not in proportion to that carried out by certain other
similarly classified position. In order, therefore, that activities
should show their true relationship to each other and also carry
their full weight In the expression of opinion in University affairs
we would recommend students to reconsider the suitability of
the present classification of offices as shown in the handbook.
Dr. Moe Returns
After an absence of one year, Dr.
A. A. Moe, associate professor of
Agronomy has returned to this University. Dr. Moe received his Ph.D.
at Cornell University under a
scholarship awarded to him by the
International Education Board.
Musical Society
Results of the Musical Society tryouts are posted on the Musical Society notice board. This list Is not
permanent until after the Home-Coming celebration. A meeting of the
whole secl-'ty as listed will be held In
Arts 100 to-day.
Letters Club
The second meeting of the Letter
Club was held Tuesday evening at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Reid,
Wesbrook Crescent, when Miss Jean
Dowler gave a paper on "William De
Morgan."
In treating De Morgan's work, Miss
Dowler outlined the plots of bis
novels, quoting several passages to
illustrate the author's somewhat
rambling style. She laid stress upon
the humour in De Morgan's character
depiction and upon the informal manner ln which De Morgan wrote,
primarily for his own pleasure, rather
than tor the purpose of creating well-
planned, closely-woven novels. A
short summary of the author's life explained the Influences which led to his
starting upon a literary career.
The chief business of the evening
was the election of new members to
the Club. From u number of applicants the following students were admitted: Carol Coates, Kathleen Mathers, Jean Woodworth, Eugene
Cassidy, Roy Daniels, Russell Munn,
and Sidney Risk.
HONOR SYSTEM SUCCEEDS
(Continued from Page 1)
with a sense of that obligation. That
will be our endeavor this year—to impress upon the student the fact that
it is up to him to govern his own
conduct. One of the means of doing
that is to make it the duty of a certain
number of student leaders to remind
the erring student of his obligation.
In no way are such leadera policemen. Our principles ot conduct are
general, Just as any code ot conduct
Is general. By leaving the interpretation of these principles to you, we
are carrying the honor system to its
logical conclusion; we are showing
our faith in your ability to act rationally and honourably. As for our
fifth clause, that the present system
of tines be used to maintain order in
the Library, we have adopted this
plan as a compromise between student government and Library supervision. Just as the professor has
every right to expel a student from
his classes, so the Librarian has a
right to cancel the Library privileges
of a student breaking Library rules.
By this system of lines," Mr. Tolmie
said in conclusion, "we still depend
upon the Individual honor, but we
take some of tho Librarian's rights
to punish offenders. It is a nominal
tine, designed rather as a reminder
than as a punishment."
The meeting was then opened to
public discussion.
Mr. Dunn, tlie flrst speaker, declared
the duties of the Standing Committee
were too vague. The President replied that the Committee were merely
to remind the erring student of his
infringement of the rules. Mr. DesBrlsay stated that the fifth clause of
the resolution was taking over the
Librarian's duties. This remark was
endorsed by Mr, Wlnram, the next
speaker, who declared that the honor system should take In the entire
University.
"As long a.s we have a system of
fines, we do not havo an honor system,"
said Mr, Ki-ysorling who moved that
tho fifth clause Lo struck off,
Mr. Murphy thou urged tho studentH to buck up the Council, most
i'loc|uontly appealing to them to put
aside theoretical ideas and be practical.
The next speaker, Mr. Graham,
suggested that the offending students
be made to wear placards for a number of days. It was also suggested
that the students revert to the old
system of tapping.
Mr. Berto, President of Men's Athletics then more clearly defined the
exact meaning of the honor system,
stating that now the students did realize the meaning of the honor system, the Library might be included.
\ttsr this somewhat lengthy discussion, a vote was taken deciding
that the fifth clause be omitted from
the resolution. It was followed by still
more discussion. It was suggested hy
Mr. Dunn that the entire resolution
be omitted. The President then stated that the Students' Court would
only act In serious emergencies, and
they have only the power to advocate tho form of punishment to th««
Faculty Committee. The question
was asked why the proceedings of the
Students' Court were kept secret.
It was suggested that It the proceedings wore made public, the for'H ot
public opinion might prove a fitting
punishment,
Finally, It was moved that tho motion b« accepted by Mr. MacDonald and seconded hy Mr. Henderson,
which was carried unanimously. Discussion of payment of coaches wus
declared out ot order.
At the outset, the Council was authorised to appoint a paid curator-
bookkeeper at an annual salary of
f 250.
In conclusion, Mr. Tolmie, reminded
the meeting it was customary to
stand till the Council had departed,

THE GIRL AND HBR FATHER
Wildly the waves, hurled by the
Btorm, lapped against the shore. The
breakers boomed out in Murphy-like
tones and crashed on the rocks of the
light-house, situated In a place that
even an Bag. 2 Professor could not
describe.
"Father! Dear Father! A ship sinks
yonder on the horizon!" cried the
daughter (Mabel McGilltcuddy) of the
light-house keeper. "Go and save Its
crew."
"No," growled her father.
"What?" gasped the girl.
"No." growled and growled the
father.
"Why?" the girl murmured brokenly.
"Well," answered her father "I can't
go out In weather like this without
my spats and I've lost them."
And no the girl rowed out by herself and rescued the poor sailors.

In the glittering salon of tho
Duchesse de Funct the social, wits ot
the town had gathered for an evening
ball. In small groups of one and two
the guests gaily gossiped over the
latest scandal. The younger members of the meeting entertained themselves with dancing and ping-pong.
Suddenly a cry rent the air (air can
be rented for 37 cents an hour). "My
Pearls! My Pearls! Someone has
stolen my pearls!"

Correspondence
Feature Editor,
Dear Sir:
The chief difference between Aggies
and Artsmen is that the Aggies work
ln the summer and Artsmen pretend
they do. (Sclencemen don't come Into
the picture). Here are a few of the
Aggies' occupations during the summer which I have found out by being
an Aggie.
One of our manly men tells us he
worked on a farm to get experience.
Experience ls very useful, he says, as
it tells you the difference between a
Jersey and a Leghorn horse; also you
can learn to plough properly before
going to the Frosh Reception and
class-parties.
Another says he set up In an office
and answered all enquiries like:
1. Is Hon No. 6 cute?
2. Do all Artsmen wear plus-fours,
sixes and eights?
3. How is a unit?
4. Why do Sclencemen go in for
exotic sweaters?
6. Whose towel are they using for
a flag on the Science Building?
6. Are Freshies allowed to understand the Honor System?
7. Can anyone translate the Calendar?
An Aggie in '30 gave music lessons
all summer so he could buy a cow on
which to practise judging for his place
on the Portland Team, if any.
Two Aggies, an Artsman and another Greek set up a poultry plant,
hut aa the Artsman and tho Greek
deserted to start a Caf., the Aggies
couldn't make the business pay, so
they closed up at thirty-rive cents on
the dollar and two cents on the egg.
One in '31 worked as government
egg-tester so he could get used to
what he ate at Varsity; and another
worked in a tobacco factory separating little leaves from mother leaves
in order to harden him for his noxt.
year's course.

Epistles From
Abdulla Pasha
(No. 6)
Sultan  Mohammed   Rassem   Bey   El
Bekrl Mesherlb:
In the name of Allah, greetings to
your majesty, to the wives ln your
harem, to the camels in your oasiB, to
the slaves ln your attendance, may
you all prosper.
My father, two days have winged
their way since I last wrote to you.
In those two days, I have learned
much. Let me take my news In turn.
First, I have found a new room. It
ls called the Men's Lower Common
Room, and It Is really a delightful locality. The people In the room are
all of a quaint brotherhood, commonly called the Loafer's Labour Union.
They are of many sizes, shapes and
ages, being unanimous ln only one
thing, their whole-heatred abhorrence
of work ln all Its various shapes and
forms. I at once felt at home, so
much so that I stabbed at an impertinent fellow, as he reached for my cigarette caso. I am sorry I did so because I afterwards learned that that
Is the usual way of saluting a person
within the precincts of that wonderful
room. Now for a description of the
place.
The floor ts not strewn with straw
as It Is In Turkey, neither is It covered with rushes as It would be ln
Afghanistan, but it ls laid half an
inch thick with cigarette ashes, with
an occasional cork, or bottle-cap, trodden well Into it. There is a solitary
table heaped with a miscellaneous
assortment of coats, hats, and other
paraphanalia. The place in always
crowded, and although it ia not very
dark, there are many cries of "Olve
me a light." I have come to the conclusion that the cry is uttered by those
who have dropped something and who
are struggling to pick lt up amid the
melee of trampling feet.
One fellow attracted my attention
more than any of the others by his
unfailing generosity. He was dispensing matches to all who asked of
him. His countenance puzzled me, not
being like the average student, who is
a Canadian. In short, he appeared
foreign born. I sidled up to him; he
gave me a handful of matches, which
I put in my pocket. Then I asked
him his nationality. He gave me three
guesses. I guessed Irish, French,
Italian, Portuguese, Russian, German,
Dutch and American. He negatived
each guess, and whispered in my ear
 Turkish!    I  asked  him  why  he
was giving away free matches, and he
said that as he couldn't sell them, he
was getting rid of them in thia manner. I asked him why ho couldn't sell
them; he told me that they had heen
used once, and then he started to complain about the injustice of it all. His
name, he said, was Fatlma Melachrlno,
and he said that he knew more about
this University than anyone else. I
think he's right too, because nobody
else knows anything about it, at least
It seems that way. We had a great
time together, we decided to hold
some pistol practice in the room as lt
seemed the most congenial place.
About ten ot us lined up, and shot at
the light globes, but In Ave minutes
the whole six lights had been ground
to powder. Then we sent for the
janitor, who obligingly put up six
more, which were treated the same
way as soon as the janitor had gone.
We sent for him again, but he said
that he was from the Unlvorsity of
Chicago, and knew how to handle fellows like us, then he took our guns
away. We then resorted to strong
measures, going down to the Caf. for
a cup of coffee, which certainly hit
the spot, and hit It pretty hard, for
it was hours before we found strength
enough to wend our way homewards.
When I got home, I found Fat. (see
full name above) waiting for me in
his little car. He said that h * would
show me the town, and take In a show
afterwards, but we went so fast that
my eyes ran all the way, and I Just
recovered myself as the curtain went
down, aud so did not aee virtue rewarded as Is usual in the movies.
Now. may Allah smile on you until
tho end of time, tor until then 1 remain your sou and heir,

October 19th, 1928.
Despite the assertions to the contrary made by certain critics of the
City, tome of us still believe that a
latent "disposition called "college
spirit" exists on a university campus.
If. this does not exist then we feel
that something is the matter. And
where is this disposition at U. B. C.7
The fact remains that college spirit
here is inert or at least primitive.
Our ways and means of arousing enthusiasm in sleepy Co-eds and lasy
campus smokers are extremely artificial. Occasionally we become sufficiently worked up at an exceptional
pep meeting to buy the odd ticket to
a Saturday afternoon game.
In a university of Eastern Canada
such an excuse tor not supporting the
team as a tea or bridge could not be
passed, tor the simple reason that
no one has time for them. Student
tickets to games are sold out at a
high price sometimes several days before the match is to be played.
The season tor this staunch support of teams in the east is mainly
that these institutions engage in Dominion inter-colleglate sport. It Is that
kind of competition only which will
foster a real interest in athletics at
V. B. C. Last year Dalhousie met
Varsity in English Rugby here at
Christmas, hut owing to lack ot proper management the reception of the
easterners tell rather flat.
Just now we hear murmers on the
campus of tho possibility ot McGiil
meeting us in Canadian Rugby here
this winter,—a possibility we should
jump at to ensure its becoming a
certainty. While the proposition is
as yet entirely in the air we can at
least talk about It and call for student opinion on the advisability of
playing hosts to such a team.
From an athletic standpoint It
would be a fine thing for U. B. C. to
have McGiil players come here. They
ate famous in the east for their high
standard of Canadian Rugby, although
they are not the strongest team. The
Varsity could make an excellent
•bowing against them if it put up a
performance such as was seen last
Saturday.
The financial side of the question
docs not concern the University as
that rests with the B. C Rugby Union. What we have to decide is,
flrst, will the playing of a game or
two with McGiil at Christmas interfere with the usual holiday English
Rugby program? Secondly, ls the
Big Four team prepared to continue
practising after its season Is over and
to get down to strenuous work-outs
in the holidays?    And  thirdly, will
Rowing Club Plans
For Coming Season
The Boat Club has now completed
its arrangements for the coming season, and ls all prepared to start Kb
activities. A meeting will be held on
Friday, October 19, ln room Ap. Sc.
102 at 12:15, when officers will be
elected, and the program outlined for
the year. Rowing usually gets a late
start, due to the arrangements which
have to be made with the Vancouver
Rowing Club, and in passing the budget. This year, however, the acting
execeutive has succeeded In rushing
things through a little faster than
usual, and It Is hoped to be able to
stage an Inter-faculty race at the end
of November. Besides this there will,
of course, be the outside competition
Including the race agalnBt the University of Washington and the meet
with Vancouver tn the spring, and
possible races with Brentwood College and Victoria.
Only a few of the veteran oars of
previous years remain, so there
will be many opportunities for new
men to make places on the crews. The
coxswain of last year's "eight" has
not returned, and so a couple of new
men will have to be broken ln to fill
the gap. They will have to be light
in weight (under 120 lbs.) and ot a
good strong voice. This provides an
opening for small men whose lack
of weight Is a drawback in other lines
of sport to tako part ln the athletics
of the University.
Definite steps will be taken this
year to raise money for the building
of the Club's own quarters on the
Fraser River. This will make rowing
more accessible, and thus practices
may be held more frequently, and a
larger number of men provided for.
STUDIO CLUB MEETING IS A SUCCESS
"A great success!" was the unanimous verdict of all members of the
Studio Club who gathered for the flrst
meeting of this well-known organization at the home of tho president,
Harold King, Wednesday evening. Several members were called upon for
solos which were readily granted. Miss
Dorothy Wylle proved herself a skilful pianist; J. W. Plommer sang two
popular ballads and Harold King contributed two cornet solos. Refreshments were then Berved and tbe floor
oleared for dancing.
At tho close ot the evening, discussing future plana, the president said he
had arranged to be sent periodical
bulletins of approaching concerts in
SOCCER PROSPECTS IMPROVE
On Saturday, two strong soccer
teams will take the field for VarBlty
and both expect to bring home the
maximum points. On Wednesday,
Gerry Dean, the new soccer coach was
present at the largest turnout this
year. Several new men are trying tor
positions.
Tomorrow, tbe first team play Westminster G.W.V.A. Al. Todd will be
back in the forward line for Varsity
and will make a great difference to
the team's shooting abilities. Phil
Emery will take up duties as goal*
keeper and should at last supply
Varsity with a long-sought-for goalie.
The second socoerites will match
themselves against Cavell Athletic,
one of the smartest aggregations in
the Junior Alliance. The latter are
particularly strong in the forward
line but aB Varsity excell in defense
they fully expect to take their opponents into camp. Gray King, a new
man, looks like a decided acquisition
to the team and will play tomorrow.
The team will be selected from the
following: McGregor, Miles, Smith,
McKellar, Sanderson, King, Freeman,
Wiles, Wright, England, Mundey, Martin and V. Wright.
Women's Brass Hockey
The women's grass hookey team will
meet Kitsilano High School ln a
league game on Saturday morning at
Connaught Park. The game ls
scheduled for 8:45 in order that all
Varsity players may attend ten o'clock
lectures and all players must be ready
at that tlmo. There are several
vacancies yet on th? team most ot
which are on the forward line. A
practice will be held this afternoon
on the grass directly east of the University Endowment offices. Women
who are Interested In the game and
who would like to make a place on
the team are urged to turn out at
this time.

"2. The geological faculty comprises a strong and Inspiring group of

of the profession, the ability of the

necessity for a thorough training for
those who would follow ln their footsteps.
"3. An unusually good opportunity

The New
University Starts
Stamp Collection
Students who are Interested In the
collecting of postage stamps — students of Canadian history anil others
—will be pleased to learn that the
University has started a collection of
the postage stamps of Canada and the
early British North American colonies.
The work is being carried on, under
the direction of the President, by a
special committee appointed for the
purpose. Already quite a nucleus of
the collection has been formed, and
those interested may have access to
the collodion through the Registrar.
The committee in charge is commissioned to:—
1. Arrange for the safe custody of
the collection.
2. Add, regularly, the stamps that
may from time to time be issued in
Canada.
3. Endeavour to secure, through
gifts or otherwise, any stamps of Canada that will add to the completeness
of the collection.
This collection contains many Interesting stamps, dating from the time
of Queen victoria to the present day;
but It Is not yet complete. All contributions will be welcomed, and lt ls
hoped that those who have stamps
that would add to its completeness, or
