UBYSSEY STAFF TO
OPENANNEX
The Publications Board of the University ot British Columbia haa recently secured a much-needed addition to ita preaent offices.
Bver slnoe tha great trek to the
Point Orey site, the "Ubyssey" stiff
and the business staff, not to mention
the compilers of the "Totem" and tho
Handbook, have been crowded together In Room 206 in the Auditorium
Building,
Thla year, however, the adjacent
room, Aud. 204, has been secured and
will relievo the preasure in the old
"Pub." office.
It ia planned to move the Business,
Advertising and' Circulation departments Into the new quarters and leave
the Editorial and Reportorlal staffs
to stretch thetr legs In the newly-
created spaces.
After New Year the Annual Staff
will take over the new room from
the Business people, who will then
crowd back Into the "Pub." It Is felt
that those who must wrestle with effusive panegyrics of the "Totem" write-
ups need a whole office to themselves.
During this term all atudents having business with tbe journalistic side
of the "Ubyssey" should apply to Aud.
208, and those who wish to deal with
the Business staffs must go to Aud.
204.
Students of the Senior, Junior and
Sophomore years will please note that
thia year the Publications Board has
reorganised Itself and will no longer
fill the role of third Common Room
and free telephone booth, as It has
done previously. Students will be admitted on business only. Loafers go
elsewhere I
L'Allouette Sketches
Plant for Ytar
Under the direction of the Honour-
ary President, Miss Grelg, L'Alouette
French Club is entering Ita third
year with a full membership and with
the prospect of a most profitable season.
Following the llpes of a tentative
plan drawn up last spring, the Cluh
is organising a program which departs
somewhat from that of previous years.
It entails a resume of the art, literature, science, muslo, history, and customs of France trom the Middle Ages
to the present day.
To this end the Club is geing divided into groups, each of which is to
prepare the necessary papers and
illustrations on the assigned topics.
One or two meetings will be devoted
to the study of each era. Slnct> this
undertaking lnvolveH auch a wide
variety of topics through so many
periods, the treatment will necessarily
be extremely sketchy. It is hoped,
however, that, through the breadth of
its scope, it will give the members a
conception of French art. and customs
as a whole, which is difficult to obtain
from the regular but limited French
courses.
Since one of the main alms Is to
encourage conversation, organized discussion is being included as a part of
the program.
To open the year's activities, 'L'Al-
ouette" is inviting the staff of the
French department and the honorary
members of tbe Club to a Tea at the
"Cat and Parrot"—The Gables at 4
p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 3.
FROSH RECEPTION
To-day is tbe last chance to obtain
tickets for the Frosh Reception. They
will be distributed between 12 and 1
In the Auditorium building.
Freshettes and freshmen are reminded that It is not necessary to attend the Frosh reception escorted by
or escorting some one of the opposite sex. it has always been an orthodox custom for groups of men or
women to attend unescorted.
NOTICE
Attention of First Year Arts students Intending to enter Applied
Science Is called to the Calendar, page
160—"Admission." It Is required that
Mathematics 1, Chemistry 1, and Physics 1 or 2 be taken In First Year
Arts. A passing grade of 50 per cent.
Is required In these subjects.
Death Blow Fails!
LIBRARY GOSSIPERS TO
BE ANNIHILATED
The Students' Council at its meeting Sunday ntght adopted a meaaure
for maintaining discipline in the library. This does not necessarily Indicate what the future policy will be
for maintaining discipline on the
campus. The whole matter of discipline has to be decided at an Alma
Mater meeting as soon as possible.
But meanwhile the library cannot continue to be a general meeting and
gossip place. The following is the
plan adopted by Council:
Tbe Students' Council will Issue to
the Librarian blank summones. These
summones will be delivered by the
Library staff to mls-behavers in tha
Library. The mis-behaver will be required to sign the summons, admitting
his guilt, and return It to the library
official. The Students' Council will
then summon the mis-behaver to appear before a designated One-collector
and pay a fine of 60 cents. Failure to
appear or to sigu the summons will
necessitate a trial of the mis-behaver
by the Students' Council,
We hope that this system will serve
as a reminder to our careless fellow
students, and will result in a speedy
removal of the existing evil c'onditlon.

PROGRAM OUTLINED
BY STUDIO CLUB
The recent graduation of the classes
of '28 has left room tn the University
Studio Club for several new members.
Though not yet an organisation well*
known among the students, this olub
Is nevertheless very active, and ia one
of the most delightful social clubs on
the campus. Meetings are held once
every three weeks at different members' homes, where varied programs
of muslo are provided, and papers are
read on musical toploi ot general Interest.
The executive of the club la now
busy planning the winter's activities,
on more progressive lines, poiilbly,
than ever before. The Schubert Gen*
tennial will be celebrated by an evening devoted to the great composer's
music. An afternoon ooncert in the
Auditorium may also be arranged for
the benefit of the student bqdy. A
studio hour over one of the Vantfcu-
ver radio broadcasting stations Wll! be
one of tbe high lights of the seaaon
and should be an excellent advertisement for the University, besides affording a new and interesting scope
for the performers. Several other
Ideas have been suggested, and the
season as a whole promises to prove
both interesting and instructive.
In order to maintain a good musioal
standard, membership in the Studio
Club ta of necessity strictly limited.
This tact, however, should not discourage aspiring newcomers to the
University, since "young blood" is always welcomed with a view to ensuring the future strength of the Club.
Applications for membership must
be addressed to Miss Kathleen Walker, secretary of the University Studio
Club, and placed in the letter rack
outside Arts 100, in the Women's end
of the Arts Building, not later than
Thursday,   October   4th.
Thursday at 12.30 a meeting of the
Women's Gymnasium Club will be
held in Arts 106.
Grand Thoth Scribes
Will Be Anointed
The Scribes of Thoth will hold their
first meeting of the year in Arts 201
on Friday, Oct. 5, at 12.16 noon. All
members are requested to attend.
The Grand Scribe for the 1928-29
session will be elected along with the
Second Scribe, Keeper ot the Baksheesh and Scribe of the Papyrus.
The second Item of business will be
the reorganisation of the Royal Egyp-
tion Ballet in preparation for next
Homecoming Night The oholce of
the ballet to be presented on that occasion will also be put before the
meeting. The Production Committee
has prepared an elaborate ballet
"Boadlcea" and ask for Its ratification. Should this ballet be presented
lt promises to surpass the previous
presentations of Thoth and "The Judgment of Paris," both ln costume and
in size.
Further announcements regarding
rehearsals and try-outs will be forthcoming In the near future.
Graduates to Hold
Organisation Meeting
A meeting will be held at noon on
Thursday, In Room A108, for the purpose of organising the graduates in

SENIOR MATRICULATION
This year a practice which has proved successful in eastern
cities has been inaugurated ln the high schools of Vancouver.
Bven If we were prophets—which we emphatically are not—we
should be far too wise to Jeopardize ourselves by attempting to
foretell the outcome ot what Is as yet only an experiment. Nevertheless, we feel that it Is Our privilege and perhaps our duty as a
critic of student affairs to express our opinion on a matter which
closely affects the university.
The question of senior matriculation offers many points for
discussion, but we shall confine ourselves in this editorial only to
those aspects of the matter which immediately concern us. In
the first place, the establishment of a four-year high-school
oourse is obviously beneficial to the university, in that it causes
a considerable decrease In the number of students who would
otherwise enroll here for one year only. In the past, the freshman class has always been more or less unsettled by the presence
of these students who, in the short time at their disposal, have
little opportunity to gain more than a woefully superficial idea of
university life, or to make more than an almost negligible contribution to student activities. As a result, the largest class on the
campus Is prevented from entering collectively Into student
affairs until the beginning of its second year, thereby suffering
and causing a loss which is too great to be ignored. If, on the
other hand, the registration of the freshmen could be taken as
largely Indicative of the personnel of the class throughout its four
years, this perennial weakness would be partly overcome, and the
university as a whole would benefit by the closer unity of Its
largest organisation.
On the other hand, it might justifiably be objected that the
students who enter their second year at the university after taking senior matriculation in the high schools, compose an even
more disturbing element than the students already discussed. As
we understand it, however, the ultimate object of the senior
matriculation movement is to raise the standard of the university
Itself, by requiring senior matriculation as an entrance qualification. Such a step cannot be taken Immediately, of course, but
lt is a goal worth striving for, and one which we believe will be
reached ln the course of a few more years of educational reform.
When that milestone has been passed, students will either enter
the university for four years or will not enter at all, and the
university will be further on the way to becoming the centre of
that higher education and culture which every intelligent person
.Is credited with desiring than it ever can be under the present
system.
In the meantime, however, we are faced with the problems of
the unfortunate "fresh Soph," who enters his second year after
taking senior matriculation elsewhere, and who is therefore at a
serious disadvantage in comparison with his classmates. He
discovers all too quickly that a student's first year is, after all,
a valuable starting-point for forming associations and ideas
which remain throughout the roet of his university life, and that
it is difficult, without this preparation, to enter into the somewhat complicated life of the campus. Until the present time, tho
university has had comparatively few students in this predicament, and it Is to be hoped that the establishment of senior matriculation will not increase the number. Theoretically, it should
not do so, because one of the main objects of the movement is to
offer a higher standard of education to students who intend to
work or to attend the Normal School rather than to enter the
university. Practically, however, the issue Is doubtful, and we
oan only hope for successful results.
The experiment of senior matriculation, therefore, Is at best
only partially satisfactory. Nevertheless, we believe that it
la a step taken in the right direction, and if its establishment will
tend to improve the standard of provincial education, it is surely
a matter of common sense to try to overcome the preliminary
difficulties In order to reach a goal which is distinctly worth the
battle,

Jots and Comments
"Resolutions, yes we make them—not
to keep thorn but to break them;
Por we're Only poor Weak mortals
after all."
For many months have the earnest
seekers after knowledge, now here
assembled, been putting in most of
their spare time deciding how they
could best make up for the errors of
tlie past year. The opening of a university compares In more than one
respect with New Year. Lot the word
ot the cynic be barkened to for onoe,
Let not the freshman, who Is overwhelmed by the earnostness of tbe
upper years In discussing the work
before them be led to believe that
they mean It. Resolutions at University are probably one of the fondest
delusions uf an undergraduate. How
enn resolutions be kept under the
existing system of co-education.
...
Of shoes and strings and sealing
wax, of cabbages and kings, have wo
boon led to talk and think during the
Inst week and as one sees the various
clubs and organisations closing their
ranks and consolidating their position
In a fight for popularity with all other
organizations, one wonders whether
the first part of the quotation should
be omitted. If it is not the walrus
talking, a lot ot what is Bald is worthy of the walrus at least ln volume
of voice. Do not forget, as a
member of whatever organization you
happen to be, that this year 1b to be
a bigger and better year in every respect and that lt Is your duty to make
this is a better world to live ln. Yes,
the responsibilities attached to club
executives if not really serious are
taken frightfully seriously by them
and we wish them success ln the
futile hope of converting everybody
to their point of view. But after all
why futile? Aimee Is now evangelizing Paris.
...
What has the Kellogg anti-war pact
got to do with us? Only In so far
that as it seems to be the duty of the
older generation to make pious resolutions It will be our duty to attempt
the thing that nobody has been successful In—carry them out.
*      .      *
None but the {brave deserve the
fair. One thing the numerous organisations of women have never taken
up with the view ot eradicating is
the scurrilous rumours that bravery
Is on the wane. As a matter of fact
many a disparaging remark about the
male of the species emanates from
them. Haa lt ever struck them that
the decline of bravery has a lot to
do with the decline of fairness? Just
look at the figures presented to us by
the sales departments ot cosmetic
Arms.

Dear Bdltor:
I have not written to your page before and so I am now.
I am going to tell you a Jolly trip
us guys took this summer.
We went to Harrison Hot Springs
about sixty-eight miles trom there.
On our way up we passed by Chilli-
wick, CoQuttlam, Cloverdale, Yale,
Mission, Hope, Agassis and Winnipeg.
We saw also the Sumas hop-flelda
and the Indiana hopping in them.
When we got up there we ate something to eat under the shady spots of
a tree. Then we went to aee thoso
hot springs. I was dlaappointed when
I aaw nothing hot springing around.
There are two hot water places. When
we saw them we walked back to tho
tree and the hotel and went into a
connected building to the hotel. Tbe
water in this pool is hot, temperature
104. Many people were washing here.
I was getting ready for a hot time at
University.
AfterwardH we came out and went

Hope, MlHHlon, Yale, Cloverdale, Co-
qultlam anil Chllllwack.
This will be all,

STORY
Through the rustling bushes Charlie
Chipmunk put his head and stared.
Por to-day he was hungry and when
be felt hungry ho hunted tor nuts.
So he went to the University grounds.
There, little readers, ho found several, but ho was alwayo on tho look-out
for Oliver Owl, Willie Weasel, and
all the other specimens of Biology I,
Underneath the Cafeteria ho mot
Rudolph Rat, who, in sorrowful
squeaks mourned the faot that one by
one his offspring had been abducted
by the management, Charlie consoled
him.
"Come with me," he said. "We will
go to the Aggie Common Room and
steal hayseed,"
So they scurried across the campus
and came to the new bus station.
"What is that?" asked Rufus the
Rat, shrinking in terror.
"That's the bus stand. U waa put
up as an Inspiration tor the Oroup
of Seven."
"Let's hurry," gasped Rupert. "1
can't stand much more."
They turned and dashed Into the
Aggie Building.
"Thank goodness we're oafe now!"
squeaked Rudolph Rat
"Hush," cried Charlie the Chipmunk, "if the Aggie Bouncing Committee hear you squeaking they will
think we're some Freshmen."
Alas, little readers, It waa too late;
A big bad Aggie stepped from the
Common Room and with a kick oent
poor Rudolph and Charlie flying out
of the door.
And now, little readers, next time 1
will tell you of Wilfred the Woodpecker and the Senior's Head.

Freshie Writes
JollyTale
Once upon a time I had a dear little
frog. One day I asked Froggle If he
wanted an adventure. He said,
"Croak, croak!" which I thought
meant, "Yes, yes I" So off we started.
After a while we came to a Illy*
pond.
"Shall we go In bathing?" I asked,
and Froggle said, "All right."
Froggle went in Just aa he was aa
there was no one around.    Luckily
i '*>*x<
I had a bathing suit with me. I told
Froggle if I shouted, "HelpI" to come
and save me because I could not swim
very well.
It wasn't long before I had to shout
to Froggle tor I had got out of my
depth. Froggle came swimming a*
long and said, "Oet on my back."
I said I couldn't, he aald to try.
While I woo trying a man with a
beard came and fished us out He
said, "Do you know who I am?" I said,
"No." So he told me be was the
man who reads the books ln the library.
Then we went home and told Teddy
Bear about our adventures.

One can not help but think of the
great obange that is to come over the
Freshmen In the courae of their undergraduate lite. Those who stay the
whole four years will, of course, be
more completely changed than those
whose sojourn Is but temporary, The
present characteristics of the class are
called by some "greenness," by others
"dumbness," and by others still more
uncomplimentary things. Sophistication will creep upon them, and envelop
them. The subtle Influence of the
upperclassmen will make itself felt.
Arts '88 will soon be drinking tea, and,
we fear, even worse, (By-law No. 19
to the contrary, notwithstanding.)
Philosophy honour students, and those
who succeed In gaining entrance to
those august bodies the Players' Olub
and the Letters' Club, wtll probably
"find their souls," the rest will go
through the same process, but with
less dignity. Some will be "awakened," and others Just "led astray."
The great change will take place
not only In their lives, but also ln
thetr outward appearance. The blase
Senior and tbe sophisticated Junior
are less given to going around tho
campus ln corduroys and sweaters
and other forma of negligie or undrew,
Be Is more often seen ln neat "So*
olety Brand" clothes, and even spats.
In order further to impress the
Freshmen with the fact that their
Alma MOter wtll treat them as "men
and women," and expects them to act
as such, the Women'o Initiation took
tbe form of a "kiddles' party."
Whether or not this will have the
desired effect remains to be seen. It
seems to have been as much of an
Initiation to the women (or should
one say "girls?") of the upper years
who were, presumably, supposed to do
the initiating.
Tbe wearing of plaoards Is ot con*
slderable value to the Freshmen who
wish to know those of their own year,
and are not observant enough to see
tbe difference between the sophistry
of the "collegiate" high school graduate and the quiet dignity of the Sophomores and upper classmen. They are
of considerable value to those who
Just cannot catch the name at an Introduction. One does not have to go
to the embarrassment of asking, but
simply wait until the person turns
around
Some of these name indicators display conaldorable talent in the art of
sign painting, and even artistry. The
Idea wan probably instigated by someone having a financial interest in the
sign writing Industry.
CAMPUS-COMBBR
INNES OILS DEPICT
CANADIAN WEST
There is on exhibition on the sixth
floor of the Hudson's Bay Company
store, 80 oil paintings by John lanes.
These canvasses admirably depict life
In the Canadian West. They aro an
epic of Wet-tern Canada. A short description of some ot these pictures
follows:
"Silence"—Canada, for a long time
lay wrapped In an age-long silence,
broken only by the sound ot the bunt
of primitive man, tbe red man's tomtom, or tho plaintive cry of wild creatures.
"Buffalo Scouts"—The vast plains of
the prairies were the favourite feeding grounds of tho bison. Here we see
a scout making "tho sign of the buffalo" to apprise the hunters behind
of his find.
"When the Blaekfeet Hunt"—A line
of nearly naked Indians slinks from
behind a low hill and races toward an
unconscious herd of grasing buffalo.
A horse and rider fall: another Indian
dashes to the rescue of his fellow.
This Is the hunt that means life or
starvation to the red-man.
...."The Eternal Quest"—With pan,
shovel and pick the early gold-seeker
scanned the country. Sometimes thoy
were richly reworded, generally not
"The Fur Hunters"—When the
leaves turn and the flrst snow folia
tho trapper sets out tor the woods.
"The Roaring Devil of the Pals-faoe"
—The last spike is driven. The paleface sets hla hell-made machine*, to
work.

Varsity Swimmers
Expect & Big
Season
This year the University Swimming Club faces a bigger program
than usual. The Lower Mainland
Swimming League meets will be more
closely contested than ever, with the
entry of the new West Vancouver
Club, whioh is oomposed ot swimmers
who have made the city aquatic atari
churn up o great deal of wator in order to retain their laurels in recent
summer meets.
thii year the University Club li suffering from tho exodua of former
stars whose absence makes the outlook
a little gloomy. The loss of Mr. and
Mrs. John Williams (tho former Vera
Martin) haa weakened the olub in
tho breast stroke and long distance
events; Nellie Melllsh, a swimmer of
three years* team standing, will not
be awimmlng thla year, aad Rettie
Tingley, a consistent point maker of
laat ytar has deserted the aquatic
•quad for Senior A baaketball. The
olub will alio require now diving material among tho women, since lost
year's iter, Marion Sangster, hai not
returned to tho Unlveralty this year.
Ae far ai the men are concerned,
the team remains very much the same
as last yiar. Reg. Wilson, tor the
book stroke and distance events,
Monty Wood end Ernie Peden for the
diving, and Charlea Wentworth and
Pit Holey will form the nucleus of a
strong team.
The executive has obtained the
Canadian Memorial tank three tlmea
a week for practices, and Is now looking for a suitable coach. The loss of
Norman Cox has disheartened the old
swimmers, but If the olub can secure
the services of Bob Granger, who will
be assisting the Unlveralty in other
•ports, thi aucoess of the swimmers
will be assured.
As usual, the retention of the Banff
Cup presenta an interesting problem
to the club, this cup has been contested for at the winter carnival in
Banff for the loot three years, and for
two years tho University olub has
triumphed, The club this year will try
to send a team of eight to contend for
the coveted trophy.
In view of this large and varied program, Arts '82 is urged to don their
suits and get In the swim. New material was never more In demand than
it ia thla year, so the freshies are requested to turn out and see what they
can do.
A meeting will bo held Tuesday
noon ln Arta 103, at which a tentative program for the year will be outlined.

Soccer Season Opens
With Exhibition Game
The first soccer game ot the season
was played on Saturday in the form
of an exhibition against Sons of England. It was necessary to forfeit the
points for the league encounter as a
result of the players not having; signed
the required seven days previously.
The Sons lined up and scored a goal,
thus ending the league fixture. The
two teams thus played the exhibition
game. Both sides were evenly matched with Varsity having the better of
the play for the first twenty minutes.
The Sous then began to exert pressure and on a cross from the right Ad-
dlnal headed the only goal of the
game.
Varsity started the second half with
Cooke substituted for Spilsbury at
outside left This half was similar to
the first wtth Varsity having a slight
edge. Varsity's defense was working
well having little trouble with the opposing forwards. Dekema in goal
was up to his form ot last year while
Allan and Chalmers were kicking In
good style. The half line consisting
of Wright, Newall and Hyndman, will
be a source of trouble to opposing tor-
wards In future games. Ot the tor-
wards Aloe Mitchell who played junior
last year ahows promise. Al. Todd at
inside left played hla usual strong
game, while Bud Cooke at outalde left
needs only a few games to be tn flrst
class shape,
The right wing consisting of Partridge and Roberts, although not as
formidable as the left, played a creditable game. Partridge showed some
of his old form when he grased the
post with shot In tbe last minute of
the game.
SOCIAL SCIENTISTS
TO HOLD MEETING
A meeting of the Social Science
Club wilt be hold on Thursday, 11: It
p.m.. in Arts 102. All members please
attend.
There are a few vacancies in the
Social Science Club to be ailed. Applications should be given to Norman
Gold, Arts '29, Phyllis Freeman, Arts
'IS, or Cameron Kirby, Arts '80.
H00PSTARSPR0MISE
BRI11IANT SEASON
With six players of the last year's
team which reached the Canadian
flnala baok at Varsity, prospects for
another successful year look bright.
In spite of the loss of Tanny Butler,
captain of last year's squad, who has
left for Portland, Hugh Grant, who ts
playing for the New Westminster "Y"
and Russ Robinson, who has graduated, the nucleus of a strong team still
remains.
Wally Mayers and Ed. Paulson will
handle the forward positions. They
should keep any pair ot guardo buoy.
Tod McEwen, center, who haa boon
playing tho game all aummor, Is in
floe condition and should have a big
ytar. Arnold "Slim" Henderson will
lead the defenae and the etongbted
whirlwind will be assisted by "Johnny" Straight and Tommy McDonald.
At least two now players will bo needed, hut with fifty of sixty turning out
for practice now, It la aafo to predict
that mew ot Senior A calibre will be
obtained.
According to Howard Nicholson,
president of the Men's Baaketball
Club. Dr. Jack Pentland will again
bo secured aa coach. Dr. Pentland.
who brought the team laat year trom
fifth place In the Vancouver and District League ln January to the Canadian final at Windsor in May, la
reckoned aa one ot the host basketball coaches in Canada.
This week will see the election of
a captain and, In all probability, the
beginning of morning practice. Until
definite notice, however, all men turning out for basketball will report for
?>raotlce on Tuesdays and Thursdays
rom B to 7 p.m.

Fifty Aggies Already
SigmdUp
Although It la difficult to make definite statements at this early date,
everything seems to point to an exceptionally good year for the Aggies.
Present registration shows the number
of students to be about fifty, but liit
minute registrations will probably
swell the list. Although we are comparatively few in numbers, we Intend
to take part In as many activities oa
possible.
Most of the runners are back with
us for the next Arts '20 Relay Raoe.
We have lost two of our best men in
Dick Asher and Les Mackay, but wo
have gained Sid Bowman, who ran in
1927, and there is also some very
promising material In tho froohnan
olass. Canadian Rugby will doubtless
be well represented sluoo ton men
have signed up to try for tho team,
and soccer and grass hookey will also
claim Aggie adherents,
Tho membera of last year's lnter-
class debating team are going to try
to keep up the old Aggie standard by
winning baok tho lnter-class Debating
Shield from Arts '81. On the whole
the Aggies are going to be better than
ever tbia year!
