Science Institutes
A Law Court
A Faculty of Law at U.B.C. may or
may not be necessary, but there is
plenty of scope for youthful barristers
around our Science building. The first
court of the Faculty of Science was
held last Monday, and Justice was there
meted out with a stern but righteous
hand.
P. C. Meekison brought in the first
prisoner, Thurston, charged with attending an Algebra lecture. Somerville
defended ably, but the jury brought in
the expected verdict of "Guilty." Mr.
Justice Mac sentenced the accused to
one  month's  algebra  homework.
Moody, the next in the box, was
charged by Crown Prosecutor Evans
with three crimes—(a) excessive work,
(b) a lack of interest in the Coliege
generally, and (3) failure to attend the
Orpheum on the previous Friday. The
decision was obvious beforehand, ns
the Crown proved that the prisoner had
taken drawings home to be finished,
when he should have been at the Orpheum. The Judge imposed hard labor
in   the   draughting-room  on   the   charge.
At this juncture Mr. Spex was arrested for contempt of court. He was
charged with creating excessive noise,
requesting the- Court to adjourn to a
warmer climate, and saying "Morses!"
and other words not recorded. Given
the choice of humbly apologizing or
going under the shower, he chose the
latter  punishment.
Every Student Should Go With the
Bunch Friday Night—Rooters Are
Needed—Dance at the Empress on
Saturday
Get your blue and gold ribbons out
and join the crowd on the Friday night
boat to Victoria. Be there to support
the Rugby and basketball teams when
they play for you. The Vancouver
Island Athletic Association has prepared
to meet us, and the Rugby game will
probably be played at Oak Bay; basketball games at the Y.M.C.A. The social
committee has left nothing undone to
ensure us having a good time, and Mr.
Davies, the secretary, informs us that
a complimentary dance in honor of the
teams has been arranged for, to be held
at the  Empress  on Saturday night.
Mr. Lord and Miss Kilpatrick, Arts
'21, and Mr. Kingham (Science '21, ask
that all those going with the bunch
hand in their names to one of them not
later than Friday noon. In this way
we will be able to get a half-fare rate;
and as the tickets must be bought en
bloc, all will have to go over together
on the Friday (20th December) night
boat, but may return in three or four
groups on different boats. To do this
all should say, when they hand in their
names, the boat on which they wish to
return, in order that the tickets may
be  bought accordingly.
Although our teams are under the
disadvantage of not having played any
games this year, they are not worrying.
They have been practising strenuously
of late. Show them you share their
confidence   on   Saturday.
Plan For '19
Annual Outlined
It is the intention of the Publications
Board that the 1919 "Annual" be produced on a slightly different plan from
that employed in other years. The
custom has been for the Board to bear
the whole expense of making up class
groups and by far the greater part of
the expense of the copper half-tones
used in reproducing photographs. The
whole burden of the photography and
the assignment and procuring of reports and "write-ups" also fell upon the
Board. The bulk of the work was done
by a few students; and, owing to a
poor division of labor, the production
was greatly rushed at the last moment
and a rather disappointing book was
the result. The new plan is not original,
but has been successfully carried out in
many  universities.     Briefly,   it  is  this:
The Publications Board will attend to
and be responsible for (1) the arranging, apportioning, editing, printing and
binding of the Annual; (2) cuts and
photographs for the Undergraduate Executives, Students' Council, new .Professors and the Graduating Class; (J?)
the  actual  engraving of  all  "cuts."
The individual classes (except Class
'19), societies and clubs will have definite space in the Annual apportioned to
them and will be entirely responsible
for the matter in such space—i.e., they
will attend to the photographs, reading
matter and decoration, and will pay the
Board for any and all cuts inserted in
that   space.

THE 1919 "ANNUAL"
(Continued from page  1)
All photographs, drawings and "write-
ups" must be in the hands of the Board
on dates which will be stated in the
next issue of the "UBYSSEY." Full
details will be given as soon as possible, and the various societies will be
duly notified as to their space allotment.
This course of action has been deemed
necessary because the publications subscription of $2.00 per year will not, under existing circumstances, pay for both
a Weekly and an Annual published under the old plan.
It must be understood that the cost
of photographs and cuts is to be borne
by the members of the societies and
not   by  the   Alma   Mater   Society   itself.
We hope that this plan will meet
with the approbation of the student
body, and that they will assist in making THE Annual THEIR Annual, and
THE BEST ANNUAL that the University  has  produced.
CHEMISTRY SOCIETY
The Chemistry Society, so far as we
have been able to ascertain, is the only
body of otherwise apparently healthy
students depraved enough to consider
as an essential part of its duty the
fostering of a "scientific spirit" in the
University. As such, the society wishes
to extend to all those of the student
body, who are so minded, a very cordial welcome to all of its regular meetings, as advertised on the bulletin
boards.
Although membership in the society
is not a condition for attendance'at the
meetings, yet, at the same time, interest
can only be maintained in any society, whether social or scientific, by
active participation in all its privileges.
The privilege of membership is therefore only extended to those who would
be willing, if called upon, to give a talk
to the society for five or ten minutes;
but as there are only about fifteen lectures during a whole term (some of
which are taken by Professors and
Seniors), no great demand need be
made on the lower years. Therefore,
"Let  'em  all  come."
Applications for membership may be
handed in to either of the executive—
R. L. Vollum, D. Kerr, H. G. Stedman,
J. Schell, M. -McMynn, J. Gill, or any
members of the society. No membership  fee.

The special courses in the C.O.T.C.
are going right ahead. The N.C.O.,
course is making good progress, and
there has been a decided increase in
the number of names handed in for
training for Class A certificates.
We have it from unofficial sources
that there is a movement to supply the
corps with new uniforms of a semi-
officer  cut.
The members of the corps miss their
energetic O.C., Lieut. Ashton, and hope
he will soon recover from his indisposition.
MUSIC IN EUROPE
Many people are of the opinion that
the fearful burdens of taxation, the
economic pressure and the bitterness of
feeling brought about by the desolate
homes and the millions of crippled, will
so influence the people of Europe for
months to come that they will have
neither the energy nor the inclination
to pay any attention to music. Such
Keasoning, however, does not take into
consideration the psychology of the
European peoples. Their musical life
does not depend upon economic conditions; it is one of those essentials
which they must have if life is to be
worth living. Consequently, it is only
natural to infer that they will turn to
music' more and more as a solace for
their sufferings. Why? Because music,
more than anything else, can influence
the emotions, no matter what the state
of mind of the individual will be.
It is probable that the people of Europe
will demand music of an emotional character— something that will soothe them
comfort them, and help them to bear
their burdens more cheerfully. We can
confidently expect a complete revival of
the national folk music of each country; a renewed appreciation of Chopin.
Schubert, Schumann and Grieg, and a
complete resumption of the pre-Puc-
cini Italian opera, because the operas
of Donizetti, Bellini, Rossini and Verdi
are inexhaustible mines of emotional
melodies. But just how long this movement will last, or what its ultimate
outcome will be, is too complex a
question to discuss and must be left for
the future to decide.

THE VALUE
OF ATHLETICS
Gladstone, the brilliant statesman and
advocate of national justice, well knew
the value of athletic recreation. After
a strenuous parliamentary session he
repaired to his country home, where
he found congenial exercise in simple
manual labor. He knew that if he were
to win a debate or persuade an audience, his physical powers, made efficient by training, were an important
element   of  success.
We need hardly be reminded that
physical preparation is necessary for
the best mental effort. No one need
shun athletics because hitherto he has
had little interest in this form of recreation, or because he has not been
chosen to represent the University. As
far as we know, Gladstone was not a
brilliant athlete at college: but he wisely disciplined his body that it might the
better minister to his mind. The object of physical exercise is a healthy
and vigorous constitution, without which
mental effort, even in its less severe
forms,  is  drudgery.
But our interest in athletics must go
further than ourselves. The honor of
our University must be upheld in the
var'ous branches of athletics, and er.ch
cf us must be active and continuous in
our support if that end is to be
achieved. It is therefore our duty to
give unstinted support to our Rugby
team which will represent us at Victoria this week. One way to encourage
our players is to learn the college yells
and make industrious use of them during the game. The team is going to
Victoria determined to win, and we
should spare no energy or enthusiasm
in  helping them- to  return  as  victors.
THE  CHRISTMAS VISION
Nineteen centuries ago there fell upon
the ears of a group of humble shepherd-
men the lirst Christmas message of joy
which has been a clear challenge to
humanity since the time of its utterance. Then the world was unprepared
for a message so fraught with hope for
the human race, and it fell upon heedless   cars.
Since that day the human race has
been slowly comprehending" that challenge. At times men have cruelly
mocked the kindly greeting by holding
up before the eyes of their fellow-men
a sword bathed in blood. But these
tyrants and "their lesser breed" could
not prevent the onward march of nations toward the ultimate achievement
of their destiny. From out the mist of
the years there shot gleam after gleam
of light, until to-day men are assured
that "peace on earth and good-will toward  men"  is  no  idle  dream.
Beyond all doubt we are entering
upon a new era of world history, with
the kindly note of this early challenge
ringing in our ears. Statesmen the
world over arc earnestly advocating the
establishment of international justice
and good-will; the national consciousness is becoming more sensitive, and
men are speaking freely in terms of
brotherhood such as was never known
in the history of the world before. The
human race has not ended its pilgrimage: but it is travelling on, with new
vision, new hope, new courage, new
preparation for life's intricate relationships, confident that it will finally
emerge from the mists and darkness
into the full dawn of peace, brotherhood
and good-will.
CORRESPONDENCE
(The  Editors accept no responsibility for statements made in this column.)
Editor Ubyssey:
A notice has been posted by Faculty
stating that lectures will close on Saturday. April 10th, and that the final
examinations will begin on the following Monday. It seems to me most
unfair htat in a matter on which the
students are so vitally concerned they
have been accorded no apportunity of
expressing their views. There are many
of us who, apart from the universal
necessity for "plugging," prefer a week's
interval between the lectures and exams, to clear our brains and prepare
ourselves    for    the    horrible    ordeal    of

removing our knowledge from our heads
and putting it on paper—usually to remain  there  forever.
Many profound brains have, about the
first week in April, decried the examination system as fundamentally unfair,
and inaccurate in its capacity as an
assessor of intellects, and have also
stated that "crammed" knowledge does
not represent real knowledge or mental
power.
On these matters a mere Soph, must
not presume to express an opinion; but
if we must have exams., let us have
just a little time in which to make our
brains super-saturated solutions of the
learning and culture which a modern
university   education   must   impart.

AGRICULTURAL NOTES
On an autumn afternoon, in two
comfortable motors, well equipped, with
chauffeurs, professors and chocolates,
we, the Agriculture students, sped out
Fourth Avenue, around Marine Drive
and, finally, up the (future) stately
Drive   of  the  University  site.
Here the mysteries of the plough,
harrow and other implements were fully
explained.
In the •Horticultural barn we examined grain, seeds and grasses. The
barn and cow stable proved to be the
chief point of interest. We arrived at
a critical moment, just as a voracious
young Taurus was having his evening
meal. Holsteins, Jerseys, Long and
Short Horns (cut and curled in the
latest vogue) gazed at us solemnly.
The dairy is a "thing of beauty and a
joy forever," both from efficiency and
architectural   standpoints.
We next went to a tent, where the
pleasant surprise of the day awaited
us. Here an old-fashioned heater glowed
warmly. Our hostess extended a hearty
welcome and served the most delicious
tea. We had cream a la model stable,
cake, and, in short, delicacies of which
the common rabble never even hear
of.
Our interests are not only agricultural. Returning in the motors, we
planned and argued whether the Debating Club might have for their next
topic, "Why do white chickens wear
red combs?" or "Why does a little
Yorkshire pig have two kinks in his
tail?"

SOCCER NOTES
There was a meeting on Wednesday
last of the members of the University
interested in forming a soccer team.
Those present decided that a practice
should be announced, after which the
officers   of  the   team   should  be  elected.
After the Christmas vacation it is
hoped that every possible member of
the University who can play will turn
out to practice. From the practice on
Monday it is evident that we have some
good players, but there is need for
more men. We hope to have our team
fully organized after the Christmas vacation.
THE  STEAM   ENGINEERING
CLASS
This is the second largest of the
vocational training classes for returned
soldiers at the University. Mr. J. W.
Faulkner is the chief instructor. At
present there are twenty in attendance,
and this number is to be increased to
thirty.
All the necessary equipment for
steam-fitting and the study of steam
engineering is supplied. When the student completes the six months' course,
he is able to pass the examination for
a fourth class certificate. The equipment includes a Myer's expansion valve
engine, a locomotive air-compressor,
and a boiler, which heats the garage
and  cafeteria.
Ten men have already graduated and
now  hold   good  positions.

BIOGRAPHICAL
SKETCHES
PROFESSOR CLARK
From Toronto Dr. Clark graduated in
1906. Later he went to Harvard, where
he continued his work, making a special
study of modern languages. In 1911
he received his M.A., and in 1916 took
his Ph.D. at the same institution, the
subject of his thesis being "Boileau in
England." He , then returned to Canada and taught at Toronto until last
January, when he accepted a post on
the staff of the University of Washington. However, like many of our
Canadian Varsity men, he could not
long remain away from his native soil,
and the autumn of 1918 finds him at
the University of British Columbia,
where his interesting and instructive
lectures, coupled with his genial nature,
have already made him very well liked.
Dr. Clark is keenly interested in everything connected with student activities,
and expresses himself as ever ready to
help. Let us hope our Western climate
will induce him to remain with us permanently.
DR. SEDGEWICK
Dr. Sedgewick, who is honorary president of the Freshman year of the Var-
j-ity, conies to us with an interest in
the West and in Vancouver. At one
time he taught it; the Vancouver High
School, and for the past five years he
has been a member of the Faculty of
the  University of Washington.
Born in Nova Scotia, Dr. Sedgewick
graduated from Dalhousie College, winning distinction in Greek and English.
Mis work as a student, however, did
not prevent him from taking an active
part in college life, and one of his interests was the college paper, of which
he was editor. After graduating, Dr.
Sedgewick came to the West to teach,
and taught first at Nanaimo. It was
then that he came to Vancouver, which
he left in order to resume his studies
at Harvard. He graduated from Har-.
vard in 1911 with the degree of M.A.,
and in 1913 he took the degree of Ph.
D. In connection with his work there
he won several distinctions and in 1912
the Bowdoin prize for the English
essay.

Y.M.C.A.
In the absence of Mayor Gale, the
"Y" meeting last week was addressed
by Aid. Hamilton and Mr. Ireland. The
first speaker based his remarks on the
Commandment, "Thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself." This, he said, was
the basis of good citizenship. In international relations, the nations had forgotten the Golden Rule and war had
been the result. If we disregarded it
in civic life, similar disaster would
overcome us at home. Mr. Ireland
pointed out that service and sacrifice
were most important elements of citizenship. He showed how Christ was
the ideal type of citizen because He
had lived up to this standard. To college men and women was given a
wonderful opportunity to teach and live
the great principle of unselfishness. At
the close of the meeting a hearty vote
of thanks   was   tendered   the   speakers.
The "Y" is growing. Come along
next  Thursday.
ANSWERS TO
CORRESPONDENTS
ASK CYNICA GAY
Anxious—'No, dear; Gibson is not
married.
Observer—Tell us who you mean by
Theodore H., and wc may be able to
answer  your  question.
Alestair—Yes, we think long hair
looks quite editorial. (It also may serve
as a penwiper  or towel  on  occasion.)
Cynthia Grey—If you really wish it,
we might be able to give you a little
help in the way of advice; but not before  Christmas—wc  are  so busy.
Freshine—No, dear child; Mr. Sutcliffe is not the author of all the notices that appear on the bulletin board.
The board is placed in a dark corner
in order that the Freshies may not
overburden   their   minds   by   reading   it.
Teacher: "Johnny, you didn't wash
your face this morning. I can tell you
what  you   had   for   breakfast."
Johnny:     "What?"
"Egg,   Johnny."
"You're   stung!     Egg   was   yesterday."
