WIN CUP
Blue and Gold Men Cinch League
Leadership in Closest
Game of Season.
RICHARDSON
ON LABOR
Fullest    Confidence    in    British
Premier's  Ability  Expressed
By Speaker.
One of the fastest, most interesting
and most important basketball games
seen on a local floor this season was
that played on Saturday evening between the Varsity Intermediate^ "B^
and Grandview tesnnsT By winning
this game, the college boys cinched
their division of the local league, defeating their only serious rivals by
the close score of 23-22.
As the score indicates, hard checking and careful shooting marked the
play on both sides. For the Varsity-
boys. Bill Thomson, with 12 points,
was high man; Harold Kelly, playing
guard, scored the winning basket in
the last half minute of play. Crippled by the absence of "Fil" Warne.
one of the mainstays of the forward
line, the local boys ought to be congratulated on their success; by the
looks of things at. present, it seems
that this will be the only one of the
four men's teams to win first place
in its division.
The Team—T. Johnson, B. Thomson
(12), H. King (6). A. Henderson (3),
H. Kelly  (2).
These boys will commence play for
the provincial title in the near future,
meeting the winners of the Fraser
Valley League in the first round.
CARROLL AIKENS    ,
GIVES COURS^'
/ IN DRAMATICS
v 	
Mr. .Carroll Aikens. who as the head
of the Canadian players of the Home
Theatre in Naramata, concludes in
a few weeks his engagement at the
Cornish School at Seattle, has proposed giving in Vancouver a six
weeks' course in the practical arts of
the theatre, dealing chiefly with acting and producing. He will take up
voice training, pantomism, dramatic
expression, play-reading, design and
stage lighting. This course will be
given during March and the first half
of April. Classes will be held from
4-6 and 8-10 daily, Saturday excepted.
Participation in the full course is
secured by attendance at either afternoon or evening sessions, thus making
up ten hours a week for six weeks.
The terms are $30, payable in advance.
This course is recommended for all
interested in active participation in
the dfama, but especially for University students and members of the
Little Theatre. It will not interfere
with lectures, as the course may be
taken either in the afternoon or in
the evening. Fuller particulars may
be. had by applying to Mr. F. G. C.
Wood.
Faith in the new British premier
and confidence in a successful administration by the present Labor Gov- <
ernment. were the salient qualities in
Mr. Thos. Richardson's address to the
students last. Friday. The meeting
was held in the Auditorium, Prof.
Mack Eastman presiding.
Mr. Richardson, who was a labor
member for the British Parliament of
1915-16, prefaced his address with a
summary of the important steps in
the steady progress of Labor, beginning with Kier-Hardy's eventful speech
in the House of Commons in 1S97, and
culminating in the recent accession to
power of the representatives of the
working class.
Two outstanding features of the recent elections in the Old Country
were, according to the speaker, the
suddenness with which it was precipitated, and the general surprise at a
Labor victory. This hastiness in declaring an appeal to the people was,
he declared, a deliberate attempt to
catch Labor unawares.
The speaker indulged in a forceful
eulogy in praise of Ramsay MacDonald, declaring that he was the only
man in whom the Labor party could
place the proper confidence necessary
for the  realization  of their aims.
Brief references to some of the
many problems, both domestic and for-
jiign, which the new government
would be compelled to face, were given
during the course of his speech. Mr.
Richardson also spoke of the abilities
of several members of the new cabinet
with whom he had formerly worked,
and stated that he was confident they
would all prove worthy of their positions.
V HIGH JINKS
Oyez! Oyez! Come one. come all,
to High Jinks in the Auditorium, Friday, February 8th. This invitation
however, extends only to the women
(All male students please note).
We believe that High Jinks is going
to be a great success this year, and
will be even better if the women are
careful to obey instructions. Come
in couples, one dressed in female attire and the other in male. The observance of the orders will greatly
assist  the prize-giving.
The skits and refreshments, we
know, will be exceedingly good. No
need, however, to starve for a week,
in order to thoroughly enjoy the latter.
The affair will terminate at 11 p.m.,
so that there will be no danger of the
tender women students meeting any
wild reveller returning from an affair called the "Arts' Men's Smoker."
WOMEN WILL
DEBATE HERE
Contestants   Chosen   for   Debate
with Willamette—Ruhr Problem at Issue—Date Not
K Yet Settled.
The first Women's International Debate is already arousing interest
among the students of the University.
It is to be a one-way debate, the Wil-
lamette College sending two women
here to meet, the LT. B. C. representatives. The subject, is, once more, the
much discussed question, "Resolved
that the French troops should evacuate the Ruhr." The University of B.
C. is to uphold the affirmative. In j
spite of the fact that this problem has |
been debated from all angles, it is j
still of enough importance to be of i
general interest.
The tryouts for the detate were
held on Monday, February 4th. The
women contestants were Miss Winnie
Cawthorne, Miss Lillian Cowdell, Miss
Greta Mather, Miss Eleanor Ormrod
and Miss Grace Smith. The judges,
Miss Maclnnes, Pr. Boggs and Dr.
Clarke, decided in favor of Miss Cawthorne and Miss Mather, Miss Cowdell is the alternative.
The date of the debate has not
been definitely settled, but it is expected to take place on March 13th
or 14th.

Game    Keenly    Contested,    But
Neither Side Able to Break
Two-all Deadlock.
Arts Smoker at
The Rowing Club
All paths of the Arts men will lead
to the Rowing Club Friday night,
when the clean collar men of the college hold their annual smoker. Unfortunately for the women the Arts
men do not recognize the co-eds as
smokers, and consequently they are
not among the invited guests.
Doc. Sedgewick will be there, how-
ever. with his little yarn and the men
are hoping he hears some nice new
ones to spring again. Prof. Logan,
the honorary president of the Undergrad, will also be present to impart
a few words of worldly wisdom to the
youngsters. Dr. Eastman and Prof.
Soward will be the other patrons of
this bright affair.
Cigarettes and tobacco free—think
of it—all the smokes you can inhale
ready for you without a cent of
change. This is only one of the features. Novelty pipes also will be distributed and these being insufficient
the pipes of peace will be supplemented with the bag-pipes of good old Scotland. A drummer will aid in making
the noise.
Bill McKee, the live president of
the undergrad, will be the presiding
angel and has arranged for food in
the form of luscious apples that can
be washed down with a copious supply of cider (two kinds).
(Continued on  Page  4)
The fast stepping Nori-fa- Shore Etk-s
and the Varsity first soccer elevens
battled to a two-all draw at Mahon
Fark last Saturday. It was anybody's
game right, up to the final whistle and
although the students had a slight
edge on the play they did not make
the most of their opportunities. This
u as particularly the case in the first
half, when time after time the Varsity
forwards broke through only to shoot
wide of the posts. Mosher was hardly tested during the first stanza, and
in 'act throughout, the whole fracas
he had little chance to show his net
minding ability, as both counters were
stored on him at very close range.
The most notable event before the
interval was when Lawn charged
Huestis from behind when the latter
wag not in possession of the ball. The
Varsity right, winger came down very
heavily and might have been seriously injured. Referee Barron ordered
Lawn to the benches for the remainder of the game, much to the disgust
of the Elk supporters.
Upon resumption of play both teams
put more pep into the game and the
Collegians had the better of the exchanges except for the fact that the
homesters played the one back game
which held up the Varsity forwards
considerably due to their being pulled

Canadian  Poet Will Read Here
February 20th.
Those who have known Bliss Carman through his poetry are looking
forward to the poet's arrival in Vancouver. While it is expected that he
will wish to give his time to writing
after the interruption of a transcontinental tour, one reading is being arranged. This will be given on Wednesday evening, February 20, in the
First Congregational  Church.
In 1921 Bliss Carman appeared in
Vancouver under the auspices of the
University Women's Club and also
gave a reading as a favor to the students. During the present tour he has
given public readings under the
management of McGill University,
Oueen's, and the Universities of Saskatchewan and Alberta. In October
he responded to requests for readings
from Wellesley College and Clark University,  Mass.
His appearance in Vancouver will
be the thirty-third reading of a tour
during which he has been received
everywhere with even greater enthusiasm than on the occasion of his
former tour when Canada welcomed
back to life, as it were, hf>r favorite
poet. THE     UBYSSEY

Sophomores Hold
)<1 Ecstatic Party
Members   of Arts   '26 Entertain
Themselves at Willow
Hall.
Last Friday the Sophomores gave
a class party at Willow Hall, which
firmly established their reputation as
hosts. Ask all who were present (there
were plenty), and they will one and all
confirm the statement that "a wonderful time was had by all."
Everything was so scrumptious that
we don't know where to start. Well,
first, it was a Valentine party, and in
consequence there were just oodles of
hearts everywhere, on the walls, and
around the posts. Even the ice cream
had a nice big, red heart in the middle.
We are willing to re-echo the phrase
that "nothing after all, can compare
with Lee's little boys in the matter
of music."
We believe that the "draw" was
one of the reasons for the success of
the party, for it provided a means of
getting acquainted outside of one's
set, and we know lots of people who
were quite surprised to find how amiable some of the rest of the class
could be. (Perhaps that excellent
punch had something to do with it.)
Miss Bollert, Mr. and Mrs. Logan
and Dr. and Mrs. Sedgewick acted as
patrons and patronesses for the affair.

A most enjoyable evening was spent
at the home of Mr. Leslie Brooks on
Monday evening last, when Mr. Harold
Etter, Agriculture '24, read a paper
on "The Development of Church
Music during the Nineteenth Century."
Mr. Etter's treatise was considered
most thorough and scholarly, being

Morden, Miss Florence Kerr, Mr.
Leslie Brooks and Mr. Harry Cook.
JUNIORS PLAY TO DRAW.
Varsity Juniors played St. Luke's to
a draw, 2-2, in the regular league fixture on Saturday. Varsity failed to
get going in the earlier part of the
first half, but towards the interval,
warmed up, and Partridge and Black
scored.
In the second half St. Luke's forced
the play, and put in two goals in
quick succession, equalizing the score.
A penalty was granted to St. Luke's,
but Sutherland was in Mosherical
form,  and  made a  great  save.
Line-up — Sutherland, Miller and
Davies, Ledingham, Heaslip and Taylor, Smith, Dynes, Partridge, McKinnon and Black.

B. C. "Electric and Mac and Mac
Are Defeated.
lT. 15. C. went on a scoring bee at
Braemar Park in Saturday's game
with B. C. Electric, running up the
score of 5-2. In spite of a much altered line-up, the students played a fine
game throughout.
Alter the kick off, midfield play continued without any thrills until Cant
scored on Martin's cross. Varsity was
away with a rush and after Gibbs
scored from a rebound. Cant put in
two more in succession. Finally
; Evans sent in a beautiful goal from
i a running shot.
In the second period U. B. C. started with a rush, but settled down, and
B. C. Electric swept down the field
twice for two goals which gave Davidson no chance. Play swerved to mid-
field and was uneventful till the final
whistle.

SJJNIOR A LOSES TO ROWERS.
Last Saturday night the Y. M. C. A.
gym. was the scene of a fast oveP
time game in which the Rowing Club
defeated (he Varsity Senior A by 24 to
21. The teams were evenly matched,
and a fast, game resulted. During the
most of the game the Varsity boys
had the best of the play, but failed to
make as good a use of their opportunities as their straight-shooting opponents. Fletcher's shooting for the
Rowers was a feature of the game.
The game ended 21 all. and in the
five minutes overtime Varsity was unable to score, while the Rowing Club
added three points to their total.
The Team.
Bickell (3), Bassett (6). Butler,
Hartlev, Carlisle, Grauer (4), Lewis

credit on January 26. by defeating
Mac and Mac in a hard game, 2 to 1.
The first half was scoreless, but the
hardwaremen scored on a penalty in
the second half. Cant, who is playing
a much improved game, equalized on
a fine effort and Evans rattled in a
beauty a minute before time. Davidson played a star game in goal.
Note—Through lack of space the
report of this game was omitted in
last   week's   issue.
The Team—Davidson, Disney, Underwood. Demidoff, Muylaert, Gibbard,
Martin, Newcombe, Cant, Evans and
Woodhouse.
Two Freshmen paused in front of a

The Students' Council has repeatedly taken up the matter in the hope of
discovering an adequate remedy, but
it. is impossible for them to succeed
without the support and co-operation
of the entire student body. We are
proud, and justly so, of our student
administration, for in this respect we
have led the way for other Universities; but this administraion must
necessarily fail in one of its most
important functions—that of keeping
order—if the students do not back it
up, and demean themselves as University men and women, and not as
high  school  boys  and  girls.
However for those who find it impossible to suppress their pagan love
of noise, we would suggest a regular
attendance at University games,
where abundant opportunity could be
found "to blow off steam," to the advantage of all concerned. We trust
that there will be no further occasion
for similar appeals, and that unnecessary disturbances, caused perhaps by
thoughtlessness more than anything
else, will be in future eliminated.
THE HEINZ BAND
Owing to a lack of volunteers the
recent attempt to form a University
band met with failure. Now when
the best is not attainable the next
best is often a good substitute, and
the Heinz Band, which has been so
much in evidence during the past few
weeks, is a substitute which is by no
means negligible. In other words it
has done a few of the things which a
brass band might have done. It has
created a certain amount of diversion
at several games, it has succeeded
(in a doubtful fashion) in leading the
students in one song at least, and
above all it has shown a spirit of
youthful foolery which almost always
meets with the good-natured approval
of the outside public. Two weeks ago
at the I. L. A. game, those who were
seated opposite to the Varsity Rooters found that the weird sounds emitted by the band were greeted with
the laughter of both the supporters
and opponents of the University team.
Now we do not wish to praise the
Heinz band too highly, for if we do
who knows but the members may
come to believe that, they are a musical organization within the University? But music aside, some praise is
due to the good-natured spirit in which
the thing has been carried out, and it
is our belief that there is something
a little unbalanced about anyone who
would consider it a "disgraceful exhibition."
The greatest project sometimes
arises from the most insignificant of
beginnings, and we would not be surprised if some day a "certified" University band should arise from the
existing "rube" organization. Or to
look at it from a less ambitious angle,
the Heinz Band, as times goes on, may
even learn to play some piece other
than "Last Night On The Back
Porch."
v^T MISBEHAVIOR  IN   HALLS
^Hackneyed though it is, the question of silence in the halls is unfortunately still too serious to be laid
away in the closet and ignored. Former appeals to the student body have
been of no avail, and the noise continues to persist, especially in the
proximity of Rooms X. Y. and Z. The
professors find it extremely annoying
to be obliged to break oft a lecture,
and request silence of certain groups
of students who are apparently ignorant of how to behave within a University.

V Professor Sadler
A capacity crowd filled the Physics
lecture room lajst Thursday evening
when Prof. W. ^adler of the U. B. C.
bacteriology department gave an illustrated lecture on his recent travels in
England and the Continent. Prolessor
Sadler attended the Pasteur Centennial held in Paris last year and while
in Europe took the opportunity of observing the life and customs of the
various peoples and of photographing
the characteristic scenery and architecture.
Views of Shakespeare's birthplace,
Stratford-on-Avon, and slides of other
interesting places in England, as
Chester, Wye, Nantwich and London,
were amongst those shown and explained.
The professor's characteristic "by
the ways," offered in the way of comment on little human incidents that
had occurred to him in his travels,
were much appreciated by the audience and proved the most-interesting
part of a delightful lecture.
To-night a record attendance is anticipated for Dr. Plaskett's lecture on
astronomy. Dr. Plaskett is known internationally as the head of the astronomical department of the Victoria
Observatory.

Y HOCKEY TEAM
Every year representative t*ams
from Victoria and Vancouver play the
best of three matches to decide the
championship of the Province. The
first match of this season takes place
in Victoria, next Saturday, and two
members of the 'Varsity Grass Hockey team are playing for Vancouver.
These two are D. Hincks, centre-forward, and O. Woodman, right-half.
Victoria has won the championship
for the last six or seven years, but
it is hoped that this year will see
Vancouver the winners.

l    JE&XTORTAX STISS  COMMENT
Editor,   Ubyssey.
]>ear   Sir:—
In   my   opinion,   the   editorial,   entitled
S.(\AI.    Conierrnce,    which    appeared    in
your    issue   of    January    31,    1924,    does ,
jatoss   injustice   to   the   students   of   the j
L'niver.sity. i
To a casual observer, the evidences of I
thought on religious questions may not ]
he obvious. Hut, the fact that people
do not Haunt their opinions brazenly
before the world, does not necessarily
indicate the absence of such opinions.
I .believe J am justified in maintaining"
that the majority of the students hold
at least tentative beliefs in the matter
of religion which are the result of deep
iind honest thought. .If they condemn
"generally accepted religious theories,"
they do so, not "without any consideration of their worth," but after a careful weighing- of evidence and a sincere
endeavour to atta in the truth at any
cost.
There seemed to be, in the editorial
in question, a confusion of theological
orthodoxy with true religion. Towards
the former there is among- the students
an antipathy that is in harmony with
the foremost thought of the time. But
there is, at the same time, a profound
sympathy towards that true religion de-
lined by Thomas Huxley ,as "reverence
and love for the Ethical/Ideal, and the
desire   to   realize   that    l^Seal   in   lit"

Dear  Sir; —
As a member of tlie Arts "21 band 1
would like tn express a few views on the
letter of 1.1 v. X.Y.'/,. which appeared
last   week.
We (the pep band) were out to support our team and support it we did.
When we sang "The l.L.A. she ain't
what she used to be" it was meant only
as a joke and all sportsmen took it as
such. This, 1 am sorry to say excludes
Mr. X.Y.Z.
If all the thing's had been written
which  students said about X.Y/.Z.  well—-
If Mr. X.V.Z. is an l.L.A. supporter,
why didn't he prevent the attack on
the referee? Or was Mr. X.Y.Z. at the
game at all? Rut that matters not—
what does matter though is that all of
'27 is in an uproar. As was stated once
before in this column, no one has any
respect for a man who won't sign his
name to his own "masterpiece."
Yours,
J.   Kx ARNOLD,   '27.

I Oeaff-   Sir:—
j /Not all our students are prominently
^religious, and very few of them have
brought. forward solutions for the
world's problems in the discussion
groups of the S.C.M., but. this fact hardly justifies your editorial of Jan. 31, in
which you say, "With most of the students all generally accepted religious
theories are eon del lined without any
consideration of their worth." I cannot
agree with yon here, nor, I think, w'ill
anyone else—-members of the S.C.M. excepted. Surely you do not mean to accuse the whole University of religious
apathy  or  bigoted atheism.
Moreover, do you consider it wise to
give such excellent grounds for attack
to people outside the University, who
are in many cases only too ready to
accuse us of all conceivable short-comings? Misleading and indiscreet statements scarcely should be made by those
who "are compassed about with so great
a  cloud  of  witnesses^."

-PEl'" Hand. I rise in protest at the
letter .signed l>y X. V. '/... Arts '27. 1
refer to his "inspiring" letter regarding
"THAT niTHE BAND." As leader of
the hand and as the person most resuon- j
sible for them performing such a "barbarous and unsportsmanlike action" 1
feel that 1 should be allowed to express
my view of "tlie disgraceful exhibition."
A number of people suggest that the
letter was meant to be humorous. If i
such was the case, whv was it not put
in the "Ml'rK-A-in'CK'' column—I'll
admit that itwas a very poor specimen
of a joke so shall work on the hypothesis  that   it   was meant to be serious.
A few longshoremen, I understand,
tried to make out that our song referred
to the downfall of their union: if such
had been the case 1 would admit that
our action bad been very "unsportsmanlike" and possibly even a bit "barbarous" but such a thought never entered
our minds and as we were referring only
to the l.L.A. Soccer team when we sang
"The I.Ij.A., They Ain't What They
Used to Be," 1 fail to see how our action could in any way be thought to be
"unsportsmanlike," let alone be "barbarous."
I wonder if X. V. Z. saw the game and
if he compared our 'barbarous and unsportsmanlike" ragging to the "genteel
and sportsmanlike" playing of the l.L.A.
Soccer team on that eventful day! Anyway, why should any team allow a few
"raggers" to "snare their Angoras,"
especially the bunch of "fighting dockers" referred to by X.  Y. Z.
I also wonder if X. Y. Z. is very proud
of the sporty way in which he signed
his letter-, as 1 have it on very good
authority that he is not a member of
Arts  '27. .

of the student's vanguard were rewarded when Huestis broke through
and centred to Lundie. His shot was
blocked by the Elk goalie but Emery
tore in and got the ball on the rebound, lodging it in the net for Varsity's first count.
This reverse seemed to put new life
into the Brother Bills, and the Varsity
lead was short lived. Smith obtained
possession from a left wing cross and
beat Mosher with a fast low shot, and
a few minutes later, Rae put the ant-
lered herd one up when he headed a
high cross into the student's goal.
Varsity then started to rush things.
Crute played well up and Phillips was
everywhere but the Varsity wing
halves were inclined to be weak and
the left wing also seemed to be working under a disadvantage. It was not
until about ten minutes before time
that   Varsity   was   rewarded   for   its

Alas,  my   love,  thy   charms  must  die
with   thee!
Fond Lovers yet unborn will not compare
Their loved ones' beauties with thine
own so fair.
For though all graces in thy face I see
That gave sweet Laura to eternity,
I am no Petrarch, and this verse will
die
Ere  age  has  dimmed  the  life-blue  of
thine eye,
Or death destroyed  thy features' harmony.
Thy   loveliness   holds   me   in   deeper
spell
Than Mary's over Robbie:   but to tell
Of this I need his gift of poesy.
But, love, 'tis better so;  for though 'tis

And    selfish,    I    would'st    have    thy
charms belong
Not to the world but only unto me.

brokers, delivered a lecture on "The
Financing of a Large Corporation,"
to the students who attended thexEn--
gineering Discussion Club's noon
me^trrrg-on"Tuesday.' As a concrete
example, Mr. Shimmin explained the
various stages and difficulties of financing the building of a railroad. He
fully discussed the methods employed
to secure the necessary financial backing and the steps taken during emergencies. Mr. Shimmin's lecture was
very enlightening on a subject that is
very important to Science students.
At the end of the period, Mr. Shimmin answered questions asked him.
His lecture was deeply interesting and
greatly appreciated.

The annual oratorical contest for
women was held on Wednesday, Janu- ;
ary 30th, in the auditorium. The winners, who were presented with book-
prizes wer^/ftoth members of Arts '25,
^Xiss Vera Mather and Miss Dorothy:
" Murnvyl....  ■   '
Tlie first of the five speakers was
Dorothy Murray who spoke on
"Democracy." She spoke with more
life and conviction than any of the
others and was commended for her
platform manner.
Annie McKenzie then gave an historical sketch of the Scottish Covenanters. She presented a vivid picture,
had a very pleasing voice and used
good Scottish dialect.
Miss Vera Mather dealt with the
economic side of the "Opium Question." She urged that the British
Government take a stand against it,
at the same time providing for the
masses of people in India and China
who depend on its production for their
livelihood. Miss Mather had the most
exhaustive and best organized material but was criticized for lack of
force.
Annie Jenkins of Arts '27 spoke on
the "Works of Mr. Drummond." She
was at ease with her audience and
recited the poem of "De Stove-Pipe
Hole."
The comic element was introduced
by Prances McMorris of Arts '24, who
spoke on "A Skin You Love to Touch."
She was slightly nervous.
The judges were:—Dr. Walker,
Mrs. A. F. B. Clark and Miss Isabel
Mclnnes. Dr. Walker gave the decision and criticized the speakers. He
stated that there were traces of
memorization in all the speeches and
that some of the speakers seemed to
have misunderstood the purpose of
the oratorical contest in their recitation of pasages. He also critized the
lack of variety in gesture.

"Down the Marble Stairs"
The large attendance of students
at the first League of Nations lecture,
which was given by Mr. Justice Murphy, decided the Alma Mater Society
to proceed with tlie services.
Tomorrow (Friday) at 12.05, Rev.
Col. G. O. Fallis will lecture on "The
Problem of World Peace." As most
ol' the students know, Col. Fallis is
an excellent speaker. This lecture of
his has become quite famous in the
Western States, where he has been
invited to deliver it before Chambers
of Commerce, Teachers' Conventions,
and  other representative gatherings.
Col. Fallis is well qualified to discuss the problems of peace and war,
as he had a splendid record at the
front in the early part of the World
War. After being injured at the
Somme, he became Director of Chaplain Services for England and Scotland and during the last fourteen
months of the War, he was attached
to G. H. D. (British Army) as Director
of Chaplain Services for France.
It is hoped that he will be greeted
by  a  very  large  audience  tomorrow.
