/Varsity wins
Varsity eleven met the Royal Bank
at Powell Street on Saturday last,
Watson refereeing, in the first round
of the Iroquois Cup series, a series
open to competition among the ten
teams of the Second Division.
The grounds were hard and as a
consequence fast, the weather bitterly
cold. That latter fact did not however deter some hundred enthusiastic
fans from being on hand to participate in the game: it was pleasing to
notice a sprinkling of the fair sex
The game commenced punctually at
3 p.m., Varsity kicking off. During
the first fifteen minutes the play was
rather slow, neither team apparently
able to get its stride. This period
■was marked only by a somewhat tame
attack by the Bankers on our goal,
and a couple of attempts on the part
of Cameron to find our opponents' net.
Then the Varsity settled down and
Lundie introduced himself. Excellent
combination brought him twice within the penalty area and on both occasions the Bank goal tender was
forced to extend himself to the limit
to save. Our Jock was , however,
still on the aggressive and from a
free kick in the vicinity of our half
back line, he followed Buckley's long
shot into the goal, carrying both custodian and leather into the net.
This occurred thirty minutes after
the start, and for the remaining
fifteen, the Varsity bombarded their
opponents' goal, which was only saved
by the miraculous work of their full
backs. Indeed, these players were
practically responsible for keeping
the score where it stood. Only once
in this period was Mosher called upon
to clear, which he did, in his usual
finished style. Half-time came with
Varsity one goal in the lead. During
this half they had decidedly the better
of the play.
In the second half, Varsity, during
the earlier stages, evidently determined to hold their advantage, seemed inclined to steady down and play
on the defensive. This gave the Bank
an opportunity to keep up a persistent attack, which indeed they did.
As a matter of fact, they were exceedingly dangerous on many occasions,
the excellent work of Crute and
Baker despoiling them of many
chances. They also adopted the tactic
of playing four half-backs. This
tflirew our forwards repeatedly off
side as soon as combination play
But it was all to no avail, and Varsity finished on top. The Varsity
team made and excellent showing.
It is hard to single out individuals
for special mention, but Baker and
Crute played an especially fine game.
Lundie, Rushbury and Buckley also
distinguished themselves.

private performance of the Varsity
Players' Club, which will be presented
in the auditorium this evening, Friday evening and Saturday evening.
In the past these plays have earned
an enviable reputation and this year
will undoubtedly be a bigger year
than ever in the Club's history. The
Christmas Plays are open to all those
members, who are new to the Club,
and who have not appeared in any
spring production, and consequently
many new faces will be seen, in the
different plays. These are four in
number: "The Maker of Dreams,"
"The Twelve Pound Look," "He," and
"The Pot Boiler."
"The Maker of Dreams," with which
the programme opens, is a pretty little
fantasy from the pen of the late Oli-
phant Down. Miss Jessie Adams
plays the role of the dainty Piette,
whilst Kenneth Caple is the musical
Pierrot brought to his senses by the
wisdom of Mr. J. C. Dickson as the
Maker of Dreams.
The second item is the charming
comedy of Barrie, "The Twelve-Pound
Look." This has a special interest
for many sutdents inasmuch as the
try-out passage for admission to the
club for several years past has been
a scene from this play. Mrs. Ida J.
Breese takes the part of Kate, and
Louis Eckert is the successful Sir
Harry. Miss Gertrude Hope Bell and
Harry V. Warren have the other roles.
The serious play of the evening is
"He,"  a  grim,  tense  incident   in  the
cabin of a whaling steamer   in   the
Arctic seas.    The rought, brutal and

Miss Bollert was formally introduc
ed, as Advisor of Women, to the dif
ferent women executives, last Thursday, by the President, Dr. Klinck. Dr.
Klinck in introducing Miss Bollert
spoke at some length and reviewed
the academic and professional career
of the new Advisor of Women. He
said that the reason Miss Bollert had
no been introduced earlier in the session was because he did not wish to
define exactly her duties, to the point
of discouraging initiative. To have
done so would have been a great mistake. He wished to give her time to
study the situation, to find out wherein the students were strong or weak
ir thai- self-governing organization,
and tc render assistance without official! v  doing so.
Tl-e speaker then mentioned what
Misj Bollert was not there to do. "She
iv not here," the President said, "to
^'scipline students, for that, in large
-natters, rests with the Faculty or
Faculties concerned. Neither is she
here to draw up rules and regulations
for the government of the students.
You are a self-governing body and
the making of regulations is one of
your prerogatives. She is not here to
limit or restrict self-government, not
in the slightest degree. Rather she is
here to assist you in making self-
government easier, more responsible
and more efficient. Neither is she
here to advise directly in academic
matters. That is the duty of the
Deans of the Faculties.

said, "to assist you in every under-

Lester Court was en fete last Friday night when the occasion was that
of the annual dance given by the
A.M.U.S. Multiply foxtrots, dreamy
waltzes and a given number of Varsity
students, divide by a good supper,
subtract any discomforts, square, and
the result will be equal to the Arts
dance. Every year, despite certain
sceptics in Science, the Arts Men's
Undergraduate Society proves its
right to existence by giving the best
dance of the season. This year the
dance was better than ever, and the
other faculties (according to us) are
going to have a hard time to even
equal it. The floor- was excellent as
always, tne music was just right and
the orchestra fairly, generous with
encores. The supper, departing from
the usual way of such suppers, did
not consist of microscopic sandwiches,
Liliputian cakes and weak coffee, but
was a bounteous repast of cold meat,
salads, rolls, cakes, fruit and icecream. At supper time many of the
men guests of the evening proved
themselves excellent volunteer waiters and they did nobly in serving
coffee and ice-cream to the large
crowd assembled.
Supper over, the dizzy round began
again, and dancing continued till one
o'clock when the orchestra refused to
give any more encores; then a lusty
"Kitsilano, Capilano," and the annual
dance drew to a reluctant close.
The patrons and patronesses lent
dignity and charm to the occasion,
and were seen on many an occasion
taking part in the dances and enjoying them as much as the rest. The
patronesses for the dance were Miss
M. L. Bollert, Mrs. H. T. J. Coleman,
Mrs. L. S. Klinck, Mrs. H. T. Logan,
Mrs. L. F. Robertson, Mrs. H. A.
Sedgwick, and Mrs W. H. Wood.
At a "College Spirit Rally" in the
auditorium on Friday last, many vital
questions pertaining to our University
spirit were popped by the different
speakers. "Is our college spirit dead?
What's the matter with Varsity?
Where's the spirit of the Stanford
game?" were some of the queries
asked, and each speaker in turn tried
to fathom the meaning of the lack
of spirit shown  in Varsity this year.
The Marshall, Sid Anderson, was
the chairman and in a short forceful
speech dwelt upon Varsity's activities
and why they deserve the support of
every student. He dwelt particularly
upon Varsity's major sport, Rugby,
and said that our various teams could

By W. G. S. Arts '19
•It was late one Tuesday afternoon;
the Tuesday before, the great Princeton "game, when tired from my day's
work I ambled aimlessly through
the Harvard College Yard. I had no
definite occasion for entering the campus, as my dormitory is now without,
but to the student the quadrangle with
its giant elms, green sward, playful
squirrels and the creeper-covered dormitories, always presents a picture
and feeling of peace. It was especially so this day, for the college day
being over, the Yard was deserted.
Had you wandered down to the Charles, as you approached you could have
heard the voice of the coxswaiu urging the crews on. Across the bridge
in Soldiers' Field, the first team was
practising for the last time prior to
its invasion of the Palmer Stadium at
Princeton. The tennis courts and the
gymnasium too, you would have found
frlly  occupied.
The sun was just sinking in the
west, sending its last rays through
the variegated foliage. True! the golden globe sinking in the Gulf with
its penetrating rays piercing through
the trees of Stanley Park cannot be
surpassed in grandeur; but here in the
Yard, hemmed in 6n all sides by
"dorms," breathing- the traditions of
285 years, the picture became impressive, in fact, oppresive. Here and
there a student sauntered by, and
I strolled along towards the library,
thinking of the history of that old
campus, the students it has sent out
for peaceful pursuits and others still,
to answer the calls to arms; as
Memorial Hall bears witness. Two
hundred and eighty-five years! What
a time to build up traditions, how far
back it seems! Yet to the Harvard
undergraduate it seems but as yesterday, for he feels himself to be the link
between the past and future; everywhere he goes he is reminded of what
lies behind and is directed as to what
should lie before.
I soon reached my cubicle in the
library. Forgetful of time, I was presently conscious of the strains of music
being borne on this night air. I looked at my watch, and to my surprise
found it to be 7.15; but where and
what was the band? The question
was soon answered, as I could discern
the strain of "Fair Harvard" being
played by the Harvard Band.
The Yard by this time looked like
a miniature city, as the windows of
Grays, Hollis, Stoughton, Holsworth,
Thayer and Weld were emitting their
streams of light. But soon this was
to change. The band drew nearer,
and the strains louder; the march
around the campus had begun. Gradually the books were closed, the lights
dimmed and the boys filed in behind
the band. Having encircled the campus, the procesion passed by my window and seemed to vanish into space
behind the elms; but the crowd was
on its way to the Union; a body of
cheering, singing and care-free youth.
This night the college was to wish
God speed to its team, which on the
Saturday was to face the "Tigers."
So, as the speakers sat down,
cheer on cheer rent the hall—"Harvard would win." Humbled though it
had been, but a week before, by Centre College; having had thus spoiled
an undefeated record standing since
1916, still the Harvard spirit had confidence ip being able to cage the tiger.
That is what impresses one at Harvard, the spirit with which students
enter into all things. A few weeks
before, that hall had been the scene
of just such another enthusiastic
gathering, the occasion being, not
athletics, but to hear Viscount Bryce.
How different were the two gatherings! and yet how similar was the
spirit!    It was the same manifestation
of that eager, irrepressible youthful-
ness, that hero—worship and intense
love of the Alma Mater characteristic
of undergraduates everywhere—it was
the spirit of a great college.

any or all matters which do not specifically come within the province of
the Deans of the respective faculties,
such for example as the choosing of

some questions as a matter of courtesy. I am particularly gratified to
know that you are strongly of the
opinion that she should be present at
all your more important meetings,
not as a matter of courtesy, but of
right—of right by virtue of her position and by virtue of her ability to
assist you in the solution of the many
knotty problems incident to student

myself in heartiest accord and I am
confident that in this spirit of mutual
understanding and good will you will

The following extracts and explanations of Rugby rules are not intended
to be complete but it is hoped that they
may be of some assistance to any who
are not familiar with the game.
Points   are   scored   from:
(1) A try - 3 pts.
(2) By converting after a try - 2
pts.   extra.
(3) A drop goal from the field of
play - 4 pts.
(4) A penalty goal - 3 pts. This latter may be from either a place or
a drop kick.
A try is scored by an attacking
player touching the ball down with
his hand anywhere . behind or on his
opponents'  goal line.
After a try, the attempt to convert,
i.e. kick a goal, is made in the field of \
play, the ball being taken straight out
from the point where it was touched
A drop kick is one in which the
player lets the ball drop in front of
him and kicks it as it touches the
To score a goal from a place or drop
kick the ball must pass over the
cross bar and between the goal posts
or the line of the posts produced.
General rules of play:
The ball may be kicked forward
but   not   thrown   forward.
The ball is kicked off from the
centre of the field, at the start of the
game, after half time and after the
scoring of a try or goal.
The ball is kicked off from the 25
yard line after a touch in goal, or
after a defending player touches the
ball down when it has been kicked
over the goal line by one of his
In the foregoing cases all players
must be behind the kicker when he
kicks and the ball must bounce before
it goes into touch. In the case of a
free kick the first part of the above
rule holds but the second part does
The ball is "in touch" when it is
kicked or carried over the side line
and also when any part of the player
holding it is in touch. It is thrown
in at the point at which it went out
of play and by the side who were
not the direct cause of its being so.
The following rules are modified by
a rule known as the "vantage rule"
under this the referee may let pass
any error of play which may result
in benefit to the opponents of the
side  making  it.
A scrum is given for:
1() A forward pass.
(2) A "throw in" which is not at
right angles to the  side line.
(3) A "knock-on" i.e., when a player
knocks the ball forward with his
(4) A player carrying the ball over
his own goal line and touching
it down.
Either side may put the ball into the
"Off side rule": when a player kicks
the ball forward all his team who are
in front of him are off side until,
(1) He runs up  past them.
(2) An opponent catches the ball
and runs 5 yards with it.
(3) An opponent touches it and lets
it hit the ground.
If a player tackles or attempts to
tackle an opponent when these conditions have not been complied with
a free  kick can  be  taken from the
By the Coach.
Intermediate game: Varsity 15,
Normal 19.
Varsity was outweighed and the
referee was too lenient; still we should
have won. There was a tendency on
the part of all players to rush towards
the opponent's basket as soon as a
team-mate obtained possession of the
ball. This makes clearing out from
the guards impossible and kills all
chance of combination. Good combination should be down the length of
the floor.
McReery and Arkley were full of
pep. Henderson should follow in more
on his shots and play under the basket, so as to feed his forwards by
passing out to them.
Senior B game: Varsity 18, Ponies,
Varsity was up against one of thp
fastest teams in the senior B league.
The score is not a true indication of
the play. Everybody worked hard and
there was a strong finish. The forwards should get the habit of following back on the play.
Stevens played a scrappy game, but
his man scored too often from a centre
jump. At a jump-up he should watch
his man instead of the ball, unless
signalled into play. Penwell cornered
his man well in the first half, but did
not finish strong enough. The lack of
team-work was not surprising and the
men must get acquainted with each
other's style of play.
Senior A game: Varsity 27, Rowing Club 22.
Varsity was up against a mediocre
team, yet the game was surprisingly
well played. There was lots of short
snappy passing and some good combination, as well as close hard checking and nice interfering by the guards.
The game as a whole showed splendid
preparation for. prepared plays.
Lewis was full of fight and work;
Bickell worked hard but was weak in
his shooting, his shots being too hard.
Fisher made some nice long shots, but
on at least two occasions should have
passed to better openings.
Many openings were over-looked.
The guards should watch for a
chance to break in on an offensive. Their forwards and centre should
watch their throwing. And the teams
would have been helped a great deal
if there had been a yell-leader to lead
the rooting.
point wnere the offence was committed or a scrum back at the place from
which  the   ball  was  kicked.
A free kick is awarded when a
player, holds out the ball when he
is tackled, when on the ground tries
to pass, or catches the ball and makes
a mark.

The Christmas season is coming
on apace,—the day itself only a month
and a day from date, as a matter of
fact. Among the many pleasant associations of Christmas surely there is
none more to be commended than the
time-honoured custom of giving and
receiving presents. The merchants
are particularly fond of the custom,
for it is responsible for the Christmas
shopping season, the time of year
when the greatest volume of their
business is transacted.
It is the merchants of Vancouver
who make it possible for us to have
a college paper. Over two-thirds of
the cost of the "Ubyssey" is borne by
the advertisers; less than one-third
rtudent subscriptions in the form of
the Alma Mater grant. The advertisers expect to receive value for
their money, and we believe they get
it, but it is sometimes very hard to
impress them with the fact. The only
way they do receive value is by students heeding1 the advertising, and
doing their buying; at the shops whose
wares are advertised in our pages.
A great many do that now. A great
many more can begin now.
And here is where the student and
the Christmas shopping season come
into the story. All of us are going
.to buy some things within the next
few weeks. Why not buy them from
men who advertise in our own college
paper? Christmas advertising will be
featured in the last two issues this
term. There will be a wide range
of choice, for Ubyssey advertisers
sell everything from electric washing
machines to pink Georgette unmentionables. The quality of the goods
will be of the best, for the Ubyssey
is particular to have only high class
advertising in its columns. Buying
from these stores will give us good
value for our money and will impress
the advertisers with the fact that the
Ubyssey advertising is valuable. This
means the paper will receive greater
support down-town. This will encourage our hard working ad.-manager
to whose work much toilsome effort
and little glory attaches. It will show
that we believe in our college paper
and want to help it where we can
and it will be a simple means of proving our college  spirit.
None of us would think of forgetting Mother or sister Mary, or the
best girl. There are others too whom
we must not forget—our advertisers.
They have helped us, let us help them.
No one likes to be the dismal raven
croaking of disaster, or, to change the
metaphor, Cassandra prophesying evil
to the heedless Trojans—or was it
Greeks? our Classics are slipping.
But the mournful fact has suddenly
struck us, a knoek-out blow, that two
weeks from today will be the penultimate day of lectures; our heads are
still reeling so that we see only the
noughts and crosses that will decorate our examination booklets. It is
therefore hopeless for us to try and
make the "Ubyssey" shine with its
usual careless gaiety, and the least we
can do is to apologize by explaining the
cause of our gloom; peradventure we
may thus put our readers in mind of
something that will make them appreciate our melancholy.
Far be it from us, miserable
(scholastic) sinners that we are, to
sit in judgment on our erring fellow-
students, and say censoriously "On
your heads be it, that you have wasted
your time in thoughtlessness and play,
and are now found hapless at the
hour of trial." Rather we offer our
sympathy, and merely this word of
advice: If you have not studied a
word during the term, do not hope
to get up all the work in a week's
hectic plugging, but offer prayers to
your favorite joss and on exam day
write whatever comes into your head;
but If you have attended a nominal
percentage of lectures and occasionally tried to cover the assigned reading, sit up all night with a wet towel
on your brow, memorize several pages
of condensed notes as you come up
in the car, don't forget a bottle of
ink so that you can refill your fountain pen as you start your third booklet, and you may with luck achieve a
pass mark. To the conscientious
people who have worked all this fall.
we are not so irreverent as to say
one word.
Tell the Ubyssey advertiser where
you come from when you do your
Christmas shopping. Unless you tell
him he has no means of knowing
whether you are from the University
or not.

Friday's "Pep Rally' is bearing
fruit. So far this year our much
vaunted college spirit has been "dormant." Our teams Cought with a
meagre, passive backing; our executives planned and struggled to accomplish their allotted tasks without the
assistance of those who placed them
in power; Our own Ubyssey staff has
had to burn much morning juice in
order to place this journal in the halls
by Thursday noon of each weeK. But
already the tide has turned—changed,
we believe, by Friday's meeting. The
soccer team was rooted to victory on
Saturday. Even Publications are now
receiving contributions along with the
customary criticism and advice.
But there is much yet to accomplish. Our own team will play Stanford on the Christmas holiday with
a new confidence born of last year's
victory. That confidence must be reinforced by the knowledge that seven
hundred rooters, organized and enthusiastic will again turn out to
cheer them to as splendid a triumph.

Editor Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:—
I wish to reply to a letter published in
last week's Uuyssey. I rerer to the one
signed  "Haggard."
To start with, a man who thinks his
criticism is worth while might show
the stuff he is made ot by coming out
into the open and have the courage of
his convictions sufficiently to sign his
name and not hide behind a pen name.
Also the statements he makes show a
lack of accurate information concerning
the business end of the Cafeteria, and
betore criticizing publicly, a few enquiries of the Cafeteria Committee
would have cleared his mind of many
of   the   points   mentioned   in   his   letter.
I would like to state, for the benefit
of the student body, the following facts
as regards the operation of the careteria.
It has been pointed out that the cafeteria closes betore i. p.m. This is true,
because of the lack of business between
4:30 and 5. and is a matter which can
be   easily   remedied.
The matter of advantages and disadvantages under which the cafeteria
operates was discussed in Haggard's letter in a very one sided manner. Tt is
also true that the dishes are supplied
free, rent is also free, but the wages of
the help is a matter of no small importance and one which would be practically
no larger if it were possible to serve
two meals a day instead of only one.
The same explanation will suffice for the
gas bill; the ovens and stoves have to
be heated up each day to cook only the
one meal when two meals could be cooked with very little more gas. The upkeep of the dishes is quite an item.
Last year forty dollars worth of renewals were necessary. I might also add
that the labor cost of keeping the place
in order is practically the same regardless of the size of the order and this expense makes itself felt where so many
orders   are   handled.
The reference to the University of
Washington cafeteria is rather out of
place, for prices are admittedly lower
on the other side of the line and also
on inquiry we discover thpt that cafeteria serves two meals a day at least,
and likely a larger number of portions,
which allows a smaller margin of profit
to   be   taken   on   each   order.
The prices of this year are lower than
those of last year on several items.
This statement is a fact, for I have last
year's   contract   and   prices   before   me.
The figures for the last month's business are as follows (Four days of September are included making twenty-five
working   days   in   all.)

This statement shows that the manager and his wife receive $158.65 for
their services and surely it must be
admitted that this is not an unduly
large remuneration. It also shows that
the Council receives two per cent of the
gross  takings.
From the above statements it is. apparent that at least some of the criticism of our "Haggard" friend is not
warranted bv the facts. If he has any
more of his constructive (?) criticism
the Committee would be glad to receive
it and will no doubt act upon it.
Yours truly.

only come through with wins by the
backing we afforded them. "Who are
the members of the teams playing
for anyway?" he asked, "Themselves?
No,' he declared strongly, they are
playing to uphold the good name of
their Varsity, and because of this
fact should receive the whole-hearted
support of the  student-body."
Paul Whitley was then called upon
and outlined at length what college
spirit is, what it is for, and how we
are to rouse it again. He said that
college spirit was not dead; it was
just latent. It needed something to
start it off, and he stated that valiant
attempts were going to be made to
revive it. "What is college spirit
for?" the speaker asked. "Is it not
for one to be led to realize his place
. i rue XT' We are all members of one
family, the Alma Hater, and there
should be friendship and familiarity
between the members." We should
endeavor at all times, the speaker
went on, to create a good impression
outside of the University, and anything we do that gets outside should
add   to   our  respect.
This speech was followed by several snappy yells interspersed with
songs  led  by  "Specks"  Melville.
Reg. Hodson, Captain of the McKechnie Cup team, was the last
speaker. He declared a duty had been
left on our hands this year and that
duty was the continuance of the college spirit of last year.
•In order to encourage and revive
Varsity's latent "spirit," song practices and yell rallies will be held on
each successive Monday, and every
one is strongly requested to turn out
and yell.

real evening. While it is expected
that the majority will find it impossible to resist the lure of the music,
those who do not care for dancing will
not lack for other entertainment. A
large committee has been at work for
some time, and latest reports indicate
that the arrangements are well in
hand. It should not be necessary to
urge everyone to turn up; we will,
however extend our consolation to any
who don't. The thought of their
anguish when they hear about it
afterwards moves  us to tears.

Sigma Delta Kappa in Regular Session
On Tuesday evening, Nov. 16, the
Sigma Delta Kappa held one of it's
most successful evenings of the year.
A round-table Disarmament Conference was held, the speakers repre- j
senting the ambassadors of the different great nations now at Washington. Before the session opened Mr.
Bloomfleld moved that the press be
freely 'admitted to the conference.
This point, though warmly contested
by some of the European nations, was
Mr. Allan, as President of the
United States, gave the opening
address, followed by a sweeping
naval disarmament programme by Mr.
Black as Secretary of State of the
nation. Mr. Hodson as Premier
of Great Britain was then asked to
speak, but was somewhat of a disappointment to the advocates for dis- j
armament, casting douljt on the motives of the United States and demanding an explanation for the extensive ship-building she had undertaken directly after the war. This
was followed by the speeches of the
representatives of the leading (nations. The premier speech of the evening was considered by many to be
that of Mr. Yonemura, representing
Japan. He stated that Japan's ambitions were hot of political conquest
but of commercial strength, rendered
necessary on account of her over-
populated condition, and that she
would be only too willing to enter upon naval disarmament as outlined by
Secretary Hughes, and relieve her
people from heavy taxation.
After this the conclave was thrown
open for general discussion. Although
the meeting was very enthusiastic,
little progress was made on the vital
question, and it was forced to adjourn
on account of the late hour without
any definite conclusion being reached.
The next meeting of the society
will take place on Tuesday evening,
November 29, and will take the form
of a soap-box oratorical contest and
social evening. This will be the last
meeting before Christmas.

This is Canadian Book Week. It is
the first Book-Week that Canada has
ever had—and the fact of her having
it is significant. It would seem to
mean that someone has realized the
value of specialization in national
effort, and that, in this attempt to
focus the attention of Canadian readers on the literary achievement of
their own country, a definite milestone has been passed. National self-
realization is a curious thing. It may
be slow in coming but once it comes,
it comes to stay. The horizon has
widened and will not close in again.
If, then, Canada has become aware
of  the  fact  that  she  has  a  national j
literature,   the   tendency   will   be   for j
this awareness to increase.    She will, I
no   doubt,   indulge   in   much   conflict I
of opinion  as  to the actual  value  of '
her   possession    but   the   more   she!
argues the  surer  she will be of possessing     something     worth    .arguing
about.     It   is   not   criticism   but   indifference   which    paralyzes   growth.
Let our critics be as cautious as they
wish;    let   them   be   chary   of   their
praise,  or,  if their  bent  of  mind  be
otherwise,   let   them   be   as   generous
as  good-judgment  will  allow—but let
them not  condemn  before  they have
read, nor  dismiss  in  ignorance what
they have never taken the trouble to
Discrimination is needed. If the
best is encouraged, the best will increase. To say that any book is
good because it is Canadian is as
fatal as to say that it is bad for the
same reason. In these days of easier
publication it is inevitable that much
of any country's so-called literary output should be mediocre. This is quite
as true of the older countries as it
is of ours. The difference is that in
countries whose vast population
dwarfs ours to vanishing point, the
proportion of worth-while literature
is naturally much greater. Let us
make it our business in Canada to find
out what we have that is worth while
and when we have found it let us rejoice a little. Canada has produced
work which is genuinely good; she is
producing it; she will continue to pro-
iuce it; but the quantity in which it
will be given us will depend in some
measure upon the interest we display
and the encouragement we accord.
An enlightened public demand is the
best spur to any literature, young or

direction of the dramatic art department, in commemoration of the 600th
anniversary of the leath jf Dante.
the usual business had been dealt with
the meeting took the form of a Mock
Parliament to complete the bills left
over from the meeting a month ago.
After the Speaker, Mr. Zoond, had
opened the house, Mr. G. L. Landon
introduced a bill "For the prohibition
of the Importation of Chinese Eggs
into Canada." This bill caused long
and excited debase. The Opposition
took the stand that if the importation
was allowed, with a heavy tariff duty
imposed, the consuming public would
be better protected than if the importation of Chinese eggs was prohibited . The government tried to
prove that such would not be the case.
When the vote was taken it was found
that the sides were split evenly. The
speaker cast his vote with the opposition thus defeating the bill. Mr. R.
A. Pishe,r then introduced a bill to
provide for the "Inspection and Certification of all Potato Seed." During
the discussion of the bill five members of the government crossed the
floor and joined the Independents. A
vote of confidence was taken with the
result that the government was defeated.
On Saturday afternoon a party of
the more enthusiastic members of the
club shouldered their blankets and in
spite of the cold weather which had
Vancouver in its grip, set out on their
usual week-end trip to the top of
Grouse Mountain. Up there, winter
is just starting to set in. The ponds
and springs are freezing up, the
ground is hard and some few inches
of: soft dry snow lie on the ground.
As time goes on the snow will pile up
deeper and deeper, until the underbrush and stumps will all be covered,
the little inequalities will all be leveled out, and between the sparsely scattered trees nothing will be seen but
a smooth expanse of snow. The moun
tain is never so interesting, so fascinating, as in the depth of winter when
the snow lies deep on the ground, or
is plastered against the trees, and
nothing is heard but the whistling of
the wind or the occasional crash of
frost-bitten branches, too heavily
laden with snow and ice.
The goal at which the club has been
striving for so long is now nearing
realization. The cabin is practically
finished, at least it is habitable and
comfortable. The fire place will be
ready as soon as some pipes are procured. A fund has been started for
the purchasing of a gramophone and
records. It is not hard to understand,
therefore, why the active members of
the club were so enthusiastic about
the plans for the winter.
On Wednesday, Nov. 16, the Agriculture Discussion Club held its regular meeting in the Auditorium.   After
The University of Alberta "Gateway" is in even more tragic plight
than ourselves. It is a small 4-page
weekly, yet it is forced to state
"One week ago, the news butchers
and spice purveyors to the Gateway
declared they were bereft of meat and
spice. There was no copy under the
blue vault. The Meds were tamed:
Red Jamieson chastened en effet; no
worlds to conquer; no news; no jokes;
no money—no "nothink!" What to
So they have tried the heroic meas
ure of handing over the paper to the
Women's Society, the 'Wauneitas," to
take complete charge of an issue.
At the regular weekly meeting of
the Engineering Discussion Club held
on Thursday Nov. 17, a very interesting and instructive programme
was enjoyed by the members. Mr.R.
Hodson gave an address on Anyox and
Mr. G. Gross presented methods employed at the Brule Coal Mines. Both
speakers showed an intimate knowledge of their respective subjects.
Mr. Hodson had to deal with a very
lengthy subject and took up two
phases only, the history and the geology of Anyox. At a later meeting
Mr. Hodson will deal with other
phases of the subject. Mr. Gross dealt
with his personal experience in coal
mining operations.
Mr. Lighthall, the honorary president, closed the meeting with helpful
and constructive criticism, correcting
faults and complimenting both men
on  their  interesting  presentations-.
These meetings are appreciated by
Science men as an opportunity to exchange ideas and experience gained
in vacation work. This week Mr.
Gregg speaks on Forestry and Mr.
Guernsey on the Yukon.
S. C.  M.
It is nearly impossible to describe
Dr. Hutchinson's lecture to the S.C.M.
last Monday. If you were there you
know and if you were not you missed
something. The principle of Evolution was treated in all its varied aspects; scientific, philosphical, sociological,  and  ethical  included.
Evolution is not a theory, stated
the lecturer, it is a fact. It is the
process of development or growth
which is going on and has been going
on since the beginning in all aspects
of life. Plants have developed from
the lowest forms of life to the highly
complex forms we see today. The
human animal is a development from
the lower forms of animal life. This,
however, does not mean that he has
developed directly from the ape.
This working out of the principle
of evolution is clearly seen in the
Bible. There we see the evolution of
politicial institutions; of moral standards; of knowledge and civilization;
of the evolution of God. God among
the early Hebrews was "the Avenging
One". As revealed in Christ he is the
God of love and compassion. The
very name of God, "Jehovah" or
"Javeh" is the One who is ever becoming or evolving. His purposes are
slowly evolving to fruition through
the ages.
Early in the spring Dr. Hutchinson
will speak on a particular aspect of
the subject "Man's Biological Descent"
At the next meeting of the S.C.M.
Dr. Buchanan will speak on "Astronomy and its Relation to the Christian faith.
