U.B.C. Debaters Have
Fine Time at Idaho
The University ot Idaho dates baok
tothetO's. lta buildings of red brick
la Gothic style are situated on the
orest of a hill. They are surrouned
by numerous and beautiful fraternity
and sorority houses. Moscow Itself,
Is a typical university town. Everyone
In it lives and moves for the college.
No wonder that In a bone-dry state, the
atudent body is saturated with a genuine college spirit.
There are certain rules which all
(die years must observe on the campus.
The Freshman, whenever he appears,
must wear his green cap, a la Eton.
The Soph, cannot appear bareheaded
and he must not under, any consideration appear in "cords." The Junior,
likewise, must not appear hatless. Tha
Senior is free to come and go as he
pleases—to dress or not. There are no
restrictions on his dignity.
We were conducted on a tour of the
campus by two most obliging Juniors.
AS we* passed literally hundreds of
students we were hailed with a cheery
"Hello!" Our friends, seeing our embarrassment at being thus hailed by a
bevy of beautiful brunettes, explained
that every student must greet those
be met With that fascinating "Hello!"
There is a total absence of formality
pt the U. of I. The students seem to
enter into the various activities as
members of a large family—each feeling his obligation to his Alma Mater,
Military training is compulsory tor
members of the flrst two years, and
the parade which was held on November 11th, was a credit to auy military
college. It might be added that while
the training is compulsory it does not
aeem to be popular.
There is ho "Grill" In connection
with the U. (What those students
miss!) Students may eat at the adjacent tea rooms on the campus or at
their residences.
Preparations are being made for the
construction of a new gymnasium to
cost $176,000. The money was raised
by the student! and alumni ln a statewide campaign. The old "gym" is to
given over entirely to the women of
the college.
Making allowances for conditions
over which we have no control, thore
are several things we can learn from
Idaho. We are too formal among ourselves. We forget that we have a
common Alma Mater —that we are fellow-students, The education we receive from this Institution will bo in
proportion to the interest we take In
Its activities. Idaho students seem to
have their ideas—but their spirit has
beon growing since 1890. It's never
too late, U.B.C.
Students' Parliament
At a hastily-called meeting of the
Students' Parliament on Wednesday,
November 10, the University party
lost Its hold on the government. Prior
to the meeting the business of the
Men's Literary Society was discussed
and Vernon R. Hill was elected to the
position of vice-president.
When the house had resolved itself
into  the  Students'   Parliament,   pandemonium immediately broke out. Mr.
Whlteley, In a vain endeavor to stave
oft* disaster for the government, made
a motion, "Resolved that this House
do form itself into a committee of tho
whole to consider the problems of Its
times and places of meeting."    This
motion  was violently objected  to  by
the opposition  who desired  that  ihe
motion of want of confidence In  the
government lie immediately placed before  the   House.    The motion  of   Mr.
Whlteley was decisively defeated. The
motion of lack of confidence, miide l>
Mr, J. O'llagan, tho leader of the In
tellectual Party, was very weakly met
by tho government and a decisive government defeat followed.   The government, torn by dissensions In ihe cabinet   over   a   constitutional   question,
eventually   handed lis  resignation   lo
Speaker i'llkliigtoii, acting us Meuien-
ant-Ciovornor.    The   pnrly,  under  Mr!
N. (Sold, was offered the reins ol gov- j
eminent   and   accepted   them.     Their i
policies us outlined In the speoch from |
the throne, were in direct opposition i
to those of the I'nlversitv party,    Hot
debate ensued, utter the speech  from
the throne, which was postponed until
the next meeting,
Only the Superb Play of Varsity Defense Keeps
Down the Score
The first soccer team lost Its fifth game on the schedule to Westminster
United at Queen's Park on Saturday afternoon. The final score was 2-0, and
If the Varsity defense had not put up such a splendid fight, it might have
been 18-0. ;
As a matter of fadt It might be said that the game was between the University defense and the Westminster team. For at no time were the Varsity
forwards dangerous, and very seldom were they even tn the lime-light. The
defense, however, played their host game of the season, and by their display
on Saturday, they demonstrated that they can hold their own with any defense
ln the league.
A good crowd turned out to see the game, and In spite ot tbe fact that it
was played on Westminster's home plot, muoh of the support was accorded
to Varsity. This fact goes to show that even if the soccer team does not
get a fair proportion ot the University support, it at least Is popular with the
public; and even if the team is at the bottom of its league, it ranks high in
tne important thing.—namely the qualities of good sportsmanship.
On Saturday, however, the team was
not entirely without support from the
University, For the Grass Hockey
girls demonstrated that besides playing hockey, they can do much towards
winning a First Division Soccer game.
No doubt, Anderson heard some fair
familiar voice calling, "Fight, fight,
fight, FIGHT" as he leapt back and
forth, filling up the goal mouth and
fisting out the ball. Baker must have
been Inspired by the "Raise some
sparks," or rather, by the feir co-eds
who raised some spirit, as time after
time he drove the ball Into the opposing territory. When Crute heard the
"Hold 'em Varsity," It was all he could
do to keep from taklngj the girls literally,—or rather tho Westminster players, and thus blocking their progress.
But he managed to control this Impulse, and merely blocked the progress
of the ball whenever it came his way.
And it is no secret that Shields, whom
even the little boys were calling
"sheik," played a wonderful game to
the tune of "Mucka mucka zip" aa the
ball "sipped" from off his boot Into the
Unlted'a territory. So this Varsity
spirit exhibited by the grass hockey
co-eds, undoubtedly influenced the
players; and from now on the members of the first soccer team will regard women's grass hockey as a major
sport, that Is, a team of "good sports,"
at the U.B.C.
The game Itself was rather onesided. Varsity started off kicking up
the fairly steep Incline, and for about
five minutes was the better team,
Hut Westminster soon proved Us
superiority, and tor the remainder
of the game was the aggressor. Attack after attack was launched at the
Varsity citadel, but our defense was
always there, although they were
forced to allow several corners in saving. For some reason or other the
Varsity forward line could not get going, and perhaps gave their worst exhibition of the season. Ledlngham
worked hard but stayed too far back
from the Westminster goal. Evans was
not in his usual form and missed several passes. Berto missed two open
goals. Warden was decidedly "off
color" and lacked his usual speed aud
shooting ability. In fact, the whole
forward line was very weak,—as a result the Westminster goal-keeper had
an easy time, and whenever a Varsity
forward did get away with the ball, the
others were not there to help htm.
Thus, tho burden of the play rested
with the Varsity defense, and they acquitted themselves In a very credible
manner. It was not until the last minute of the tlrst period that tho l/nltod's
managed to score.
Varsity was kicking down hill lu the
second hall', but this advantage did
not seem to Improve their play, I'or the
I'nlteds were continually on the offensive. About half-way through this
period Westminster scored lis second
goat, alter a stinging shot which was
almost cleared. This llnlsheil the
.-.coring I'or the day, and when the
lliial whistle blew Varsity was on ihe

On Thursday morning, in spite of
grey skies and a cold wind, Faculty,
Alumni and students gathered together to pay tribute to the memory of
the men who died overseas.
As early as ten o'clock crowds of
students gathered outside the Administrative building. The men and
women formed columns which marched over to the Science Building and
came face to face outside the main
entrance. After the singing of "O
Canada," the Rev. Mr. Holmes addressed  the assembly.
"A great Ideal" Bald Mr. Holmes,
"summoned them to those fields of
France." We should remember the
types of men who went out to fight
for us. They had the same Ideals, the
same visions as we have. They, also,
bul't high castles and dreamed great
dreams, but in response to the call
they put away their boohs and sacrificed life's ambition, willingly, for
what they were sure was a great end,
They needed no encouragement; they
went because a great Ideal summoned
them. They laid down their lives for
the benefit of mankind and for world
It Is Incumbent upon the students
of the I'niverslty lo carry on what
those men started. They gave up all
that wan dearest to them for the
great cause. The students should devote their lives lo carrying on the
w ork.
"The challenge of the men who
have gone," said Mr. Holmes, "Is to
ask you to live for what they died."
The students of the University
should go out and set the world
thinking along new lines. They should
live and strive for new deals that
make for International good will and
world  peace.
Following the address a wreath
from the boys of the 196th battalion
was placed beneath the memorial tablet inside the main entrance of the
Science Building. The Last Post was

for their support, and to William Dick
for his support ln publication.
The Canadian Rugby Club were authorized to sell tickets for the gome

arrangements were made for a Basketball Dance ln their honor on
Saturday night.
The province of British Columbia
has had a very romantio past since the
explorers came to claim the land for
the white man. Through the process
of time, Great Britain was recognised
as owner of Vancouver Island and tbe
northern mainland. The Hudson's
Bay Company established their fort
on Vancouver Island at the present
sight of Victoria. The hardy pioneers
began to make their permanent homes
there, but after a time the need ot
proper administration was felt. In anticipation of a large settlement the
Imperial Government decided to set
up legislative machinery.
in accordance with the plans, .felon*
ard Blanshard was appointed governor
and arrived at Victoria, March 10,
1850, but owing to discouragements,
resigned his office after a short stay.
Before leaving he appointed a Council
to carry on the government consisting
of Chief Factor James Douglas of the
Hudson's Bay Company, Capt. James
Cowper and John Tod.
It was not uutil November, 1851,
that the new governor was appointed
in the person of James Douglas. In
practice this man was the first red;
representative of the Crown. The oath
of office was taken on November 18,
Thus, November 19 becomes the
birthday of British Columbia as a
Crown Colony, and a day to be cherished by the people of this province.
It has since become known as "Douglas Day" in honor ot the first governor,
The .Native Sons ot B. C. are endeavoring to bring this date to the attention of the oitlsens of the province,
and on Friday next, November 19, a
campaign is to be held to further this
cause. To commemorate the day tbe
people are asked to wear a sprig Ot
Douglas Fir (named after David Douglas, a botanist), and the Native Sons
are making a distribution of the emblems to the public.
The University is to be included In
the campaign, and by permission of
the Students' Council, boxes of emblems will be placed ln the Common
Rooms on Friday, November 19. The
student body and faculty are asked to
take a sprig and wear It during tbe
Defeated Heavily by Rowing Club- First Half Fairly Even
The Miller Cup series closed last
Saturday, Varsity going down to defeat before the champion Rowing Club
outfit to the tune of IS—3, three goals
and one try to one try. With all regulars back on the line-up next Saturday Varsity will be out to avenge this
defeat and begin the Tlsdall Cup series with a win.
The first half of last Saturday's
game was very even, play being mostly In nftn-fleld with occasional sorties
to each line. Varsity had several op-
portunllles to score early In the game,
but over-eagerness of the backs as
soon as they approached the line caused costly fumbles, Consistent kicking
by Prenter, the Club fullback, relieved
the Varsity offensive and forced the
play back to mldfleld. Varsity forwards had a slight edge on the Club
In the scrums and llneouls but did not
pack together in the loose. The crack
Club backfleld started a number of
long runs only to meet disaster al Ihe
hands of Locke at fulback, whose
llinely kicking ruined many a prospective score. The end of the hall
was mostly forward rushes with Harold Mahon and Tiny Noble doing some
effective plunging for Varsity. Just
as the half ended Hie Club forwards
drove the ball over from a loose scrum
and collapsed on I be hall for Ihe llrst
score, which wns converted from n
dllllculi angle.

past the blind side of a scrum and
circled around to plant the ball behind   the   posts,   the   try   being   easily
converted. From the resulting klckoff
Varsity forwards rashed the ball Into
the Club twenty-five and gave the
Rowers some anxious moments before
Farmer kicked to touch. The Club
secured the ball from the lineout but
Sinclair Intercepted the pass from the
halfback and plunged for the line,
slipping the ball to Noble when collared a yard from the sawdust. The
big boy bruised across with three men

to desist, bringing In Varsity's only
Mahon made a fine try to kick goal,
the ball hitting the crossbar. Towards the end of the gsme through
loose playing In the bacKfleld, Rowing Club added two more scores to
(heir total.
During the first half Varsity more
than held Its own, but loose playing tn
the second half lost the game. Tiny
Noble pounded out a great game
among the forwards, out-bruising Tom
Drown, the Club bad man, at his own
gume. As a result of his efforts he
was adorned with one perfectly gorgeous purple shiner. Harold Mahon
surprised his team mates wilh nn expected I urn of speed and reeled off
several long runs. As usual "Bertie

We are weary. No longer will we, by alternately reviling and
cajoling, attempt to stir the student body into activity—activity
whioh is, after all, pointless from a practical standpoint, but which
gladdens the hearts of those who think, rightly or wrongly, that a
quiet student body is necessarily a dead one.
With quietness we have no quarrel. Noise of the horn-blowing
Variety, afreets us as it did Schopenhauer. Had the student body
quietly supported its activities (which means only lending a helping
hand to those who have shouldered the burden of continuing those
activities,) we would have uttered no complaint. The sly student
body, however, has quietly not supported its activities; and the final
leiult id quiet, of a sort we do not want.
Scheduled games go unattended; intercollegiate debates go without an audience; the campus is without life; the Students' Council
meets regularly and conscientiously and, for all they do in the way
of diagnosing the condition of the student body, they would be well
advised to set up practice in China where doctors are employed to
keep in good health only those who are healthy.
The Students' Council would like to see an interest displayed by
the student body in its own fate; we are already morbidly interested
in that fate; but the corpus in the case seems not to care.
Through sky the colour of fairy-tale,
Over sea of pinafore-blue,
I boarded ship for a life-long trip
To the Purple Isles, and you.
And when I got to the Purple Isles
With surf as bright as gold,
I lost my way in the dying day,
With never a star to point the way,
And never a hand to hold.
And now I'm old, I still set sail
For Impossible places, too,—
Through skies the colour of fairy-tale,
Over seas ot plnatore-blue,
Oh! never I dream I'll meet you where
The days are as tales untold;—
I even smile at a purple Isle,
Tho' surf be bright as gold!
Dut ever I sail where ships may go;
Though never there's earthly cure
In surf that's gold or In tales untold,
For hearts so young, that they won't
grow o'd,—
Or lu purple Isles that lure.

Whltely Secure Unanimous
Doug. Telford and Bill Master-
•on also Victorious
British Columbia won a dual victory
In the first Intercollegiate debate of
the season when both the home and
away teams defeated the University of
Idaho lost week. Doug Telford and
Bill Masterson, debating at Moscow,
secured a 2 to 1 victory, while Denis
Murphy and A. L. Whltely gained the
unanimous decision at home.
Unfortunately, the attendance here
was particularly poor. Perhaps the
subject, "Renolved that prohibition is
In the betit Interests of Clausula,"
frightened many of the students away,
for fear that they might be convinced
by the affirmative that It was, Scarcely
one hundred people were ln the King
Edward auditorium, and most of these
were above the age and intelligence
ot our own student body.
Although the Idaho debaters wore
clever and In the closing moments of
the debate displayed some remarkable
forensic powers, they lacked the grasp
of the subject and platform presence
of our own orators.
Whltely opened the debate with an
able speech backed up by an array of
statistics and quotations that should
have convinced the world's worst
drunkard of the futility of the convivial cause. He Intimated prohibition
was an economic success and touched
slightly on the moral Issues at stake.
It Is worth recording that he stated
that deaths from alcoholism had decreased seventy per cent, since prohibition.
But the first Idaho debater, Wunder-
llch, lifted the banner of personal liberty and chose to lay down the gage
of battle on thla argument. He also
stated that 1.'. would be Impossible to
enforce prohibition as It was, ln
the United States, as it would bring
the country Into International disfavor.
He alHO mentioned briefly the convivial aspect ot the question.
It was a clever speech and he
brought It to a good climax wtth a
unique toast to tho audience.
"Hern's to you Canadians," he aald.
"you are as wot as we are dry; yot
wet as you are and dry as we are, you
are drier than we are wet."
In Dents Murphy the cause of prohibition found as staunch and aa brilliant and persuasive a defender as
could be found In the pulpit. He
stalked the platform and denounced
the foes of evil ln no uncertain man
"It alcohol Is good," he declared,
"let us by all means have more of It;
but, my friends, the opponents, wish
to limit its supply. Either a thing is
good or it is bad. And, if it Is bad,
let us do away with it."
Not content with this, Mr. Murphy
castigated the American judicial system and spoke ln glowing terms of
our own law enforcement bodies. Prohibition was enforceable ln Canada, he
said, for he had faith in the moral
qualities of the Canadian people.
Mr. Chad burn of Idaho, went a long
way back to find moral grounds for
his cause and from there he marched
on to his conclusion that prohibition
was neither economically sound nor
morally right, inasmuch ns It interfered: with ihe personal liberty of
"you and rne."
Economically, prohibition was a
failure, he continued, because It
meant the shutting down of the breweries, the increase of crime, nnd the
consequent increase in the cost of law
enforcement and the lack of efficiency
In certain workmen because they did
inn secure suflleieut beer for break-
fust, lie enlarged on the "personal
liberty" arguments of ills colleague.
Pebuttnls of both sides were undistinguished and consisted merely of reiteration of previous arguments.
Judges for the debate were Messrs.
E. S. Robinson, Vancouver librarian;
Leonard Miller, president of the Vancouver Debating League, and Dr. J. L.
Pep Meeting Proves
Howling Success
The effects of Homecoming week
are evidently with us yet. The pep
meeting, slug-song, song-meeting, or
whatever It was supposed to bo on
Friday, certainly produced more noise
both in songs and yells than In previous meetings this term—they even got
the women to give a yell, not to mention the freshettes- Charlie Mottley
also attempted to teach the University
of Alberta's yell and In uU likelihood
the men of Alberta will be homesick
on  Saturday.
Les Ilrown ns song loader showed

Muddy swirls on the white tile floor
of the dairy lunch. It was midnight
aud there was an expanse of dirty
tables. The counter showed rows of
empty coffee cups, and in the far comer a half-eaten doughnut lay on the
noor. Against the wall a man in overalls read a scrap of newspaper as he
slopped coffee with a bent spoon. We
caught our coats high about our
throats as we munched sandwiches.
The tired girl, behind the counter,
washed dishes and sighed. The damp,
gray chill pervaded the place. A man
in a heavy overcoat stepped out of
the fog for a moment iuto the light,
paused, went on. The girl washed
Ueyond the entrance there was
nothing but a square of dirty gray,
which was from time to ttme swept
ln across the oozy floor. Gray—the
color of ghosts.
", . . . It was lough, John concluded. There was a somber silence as
wc sipped our coffee. The girl behind
the counter washed dishes—It was
the only sound.
Then from out of the fog came an
old woman. She wore a worn black
coat, which trailed ou the wet floor
and hid all of her except the toes of
her cracked, black shoes. She stooped,
for she had been a tall woman, and
her long arms were folded across
her body. A wisp of stringy hair
swept from under the tattered felt,
which almost hid her face, which
was lined, and like old paper. One
could not see her eyes.
She wobbled to the counter. The
girl stopped washing dishes, wiped
her hands and drew a cup of hot.
coffee. She pushed It across the counter, reached underneath and handed
over a plate with two stale doughnuts.
The old woman reached out a thin
hand and some pennies clattered on
the counter. Then she warmed her
hands   over   the  cup.
A wind breath ol way, driven by the
wind, swept in the open doorway. The
old woman rubbed her hands in the
dying  steam  of   the  coffee.

Dear Sir:—
I should like very much to make a
few remarks re college spirit and Its
connection with the Swimming Club,
ln the first place, to date, the club
Is composed of 35 members, just one-
half the number we had last year.
Last year two or three fellows nagged and nagged till they were sick
of it and managed, after six weeks'
hard work, to get 70 men out; this
year they are still sick or nagging
and don't Intend to start. Now I have
a bone to pick with 8c. '80 to start
with, and with the rest of science In
general. He. '30 have done a lot of
roaring and shouting but show me
where they have come out and done
something for their college. Last
year Arts '29 (a class to which Sc.
',10 presumably belonged), won the
Inter-Class Swimming Meet. Where,
may I ask, are the swimmers In Sc.
'30. As far as the rest of the Science
men are concerned last year they
brought up the excuse that they
could only get out at night aud so it
was not worth while, This year we
made particular efforts to get all the
periods in the evening. I may add I
haven't noticed any particular stampede on their part to help their college or their  faculty.
Agriculture may have one or two
members In the Club, I'm not sure.
I do know, however, that there are
nt least five really good swimmers
In Aggie and at least another ten
who ought to turn out.
As for Arts, the upper years have
three between them and we ought to
be able to get a fourth to make up
a relay team. The Freshmen and
Sophomores are the back-bone of
the Club and they are the only ones
who have given the executive any
backing at all,
This state of affairs is not the
fault of the executive. They have
arranged for three nights a weeks
at the Canadian Memorial tank, (the
best coach ln B. C. is present at two
of those periods), and have done
more chasing around than all of the
other members put together. How
about a little action from the tost
of the college? The lnter-class Is to
be run off on Monday next and the
Victoria trip Is coming up soon and
we need men and lots of them. Everybody who takes an Interest ln the
Club and swimming will get coaching
from  Mr. Cox.
Yours truly,
Dalton  Allan,  Pres.
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear   Sir:-
At the conclusion of the Home-
Coming ceremonies It is fitting thnt
credit should be given to all those
members of the student body who
worked hard to make the week-end
a success. While it is manifestly impossible to mention by name all those
who took part, the Alumni Society
would like lo thank all who assisted
In   any   way.
('Ireal credit should be given to Mr.
John Oliver, without whose co-opera- I
Hon the ceremonies could not have
taken place, and to Mr. Les Brown,
who acted as stage manager on Theatre night.' The Alumni Society thanns
the "Ubyssey" for the ready manner
in which that paper has given support
both in the editorial column and elsewhere.
It Is felt that regardless of what
may occur In future years, 1926 will
stand out as one of the great years
In Varsity history If for no other reason than for the founding of the Home
Coming tradition.
The Homo-Coming Committee has
welcomed to the campus all graduates, and trusts that ln renewed associations and tn new friendships these
few days may have been the source
of great good to the Alma Mater.
Paul  Whlteley '21,  John  Orace '26.

Varsity "A" Women
Continue To Win
On Saturday night Varsity "A" won
its second game by defeating tho New
Westminster Y. W. C. A. 14—5. In
the flrst quarter Varsity "A" played
circles around their opponents, but
their shooting was utterly hopeless,
and many of their passes wero simply thrown away, so that the score at
the end of the first quarter stood
0—0. There was a great deal too
much dribbling, and had the team exhibited a little more co-operation the
play would have been much Improved
The play In the second quarter con
tinned much the same as In the first
Clara Menton was unlucky enough lo
get knocked out. She was replaced
by Jeanne Carlawe, on whom a technical foul was called which was converted by the Y. Soon after, Toddy
Dockerlll put ln a wonderful shot, so
that the score at half time stood 3-0
for the Y. Gay Swenciski played a
splendid game  during  this  half.
In the second half Varsity found
its feet, Torchy Bailey putting ln two
baskets In rapid succession. A pretty
combination play by Thelma and Clara
resulted ln a basket by Thelma. Torchy found the basket a third time,
making the score 8—3; but the Y. raised It to 8—4 by adding another free
Varsity kept up the good work In
the last quarter, far outclassing the
Y., which nevertheless had a great
deal of hard luck. Rene, Clara and
Thelma all contributed to the score,
whereas the Y. was able to add only
one more point. The final score was
Varsity played a strong checking
game, their five-player defence tactics

Jacob had bought his brother's
birthright at a bargain and was naturally very pleased with himself.
He had only given twenty-five cents'
worth of Cafeteria pottage,—and he
preferred corned beef, anyway.
Mrs. Rebekah Isaac was delighted
with the business Instinct ot her son
and helped him concoct a scheme
of how they could get the hotter of
Mr. Isaac himself, Isaac was by now
an old man, and In spite of his hornrimmed glasses was nearly blind. His
great fault was that he ■ preferred
Esau to smart lttle Jakey.
Esau being safely out of the way
on a shooting expedition, Rebecca put
his best Sunday suit on Jacob, and,
remembering that Esau was a hairy
he-man, put the skins of goats on
her favorite eon'e hands.
"Here I am, pop," said Jacob,
bouncing Into his father's room. "I
am Esau."
"Come here, sonny," said Isaac, suspiciously, "That I may feel you. If
you are Esau I'll give you my blessing."
Jacob came close and his father
felt him with pleasure.
"The skin you love to touch!"
chuckled Rebecca with glee,
Freshmen, Beware!
Aggie Bouncing Committee Is taking
erring Frosh in hand)
It has been rumored that a strange,
formidable body of students has been
seen lately patrolling up and down the
halls of tho Agriculture Building. Erring Freshmen crouch In abject terror
In every nook that offers them protection. None escape. The thorough
search of the Aggie Bouncing committee reveals them, and they are dragged
forth, white and trembling, to meet
their fate. Even the Arts' Frosh are
not safe. Notlcea posted warn tbem
that before entering the Aggie domain
they must conform to the green necktie regulations. The committee reports that 100 per cent, of the Aggie
Frosh are wearing green ties.	
Second Soccer Loses
The Second Team met their second
defeat this season at the hands of
Sydney Junklns by a 2—1 score. The
game was played at Hastings Park,
and the Held was a veritable sea of
mud. In spite of the heavy condition
of the field, play was fast and interesting.
Varsity started strongly from the
kick-off, but wore unable to locate the
goal. Play travelled rapidly from end
to end, and Junklns sent in several
fine shots which Miller cleared nicely. Junklns began to have the better
of the play, and their centre managed
to score on a cross from the right.
Junklns started strongly after the
interval, and gave Miller a busy time
in goal. About ten minutes from the
start the opponents' centre added their
second count on a shot from close in.
Varsity worked hard and kept the
ball In Junklns' half of the field, but
did not score until three minutes of
time, when Wright put the ball in
the  corner.
The forwards played well ln spite
of the condition of the field and the
cliuiiKcd line-up, Wright was the best
of the halves and kept the forwards
up. Ailan, Warden and Miller all played a good game.
Line-up—Miller, Allan, Warden, Emery, Wright, Miles, Dullield, Partridge,
Gauden,  Wilkinson, Splllsbury.

U. of Alberta Wins
Canadian Rugby Tilt
Visitors Entertained by U.B.C.
The Victoria-Alberta Rugby game
Saturday was undoubtedly the most
spectacular game seen on the coast
this fall. Alberta won 21-2. Victoria,
though obviously out-classed, fought
like demons throughout the whole
The wet field slowed the game up
considerably, and there was a certain
amount of unfortunate argument about
technicalities tn the rules, Hence, no
one can contend that the game was a
fast one. The game was relieved, however, by some fine runs and some
beautiful kicking. Both punters averaged forty yards whenever they booted
the ball.
The gratifying crowd in the stands,
of which a large number were Varsity
students, got its money's worth. The
fine work of the prairie team soon won
them the support of the spectators.
The Varsity cheering wau peppy; several players of the University of Alberta team commented enthusiastically upon the well-organised rooting. In
their opinion, U.B.C. leads them in this
Alberta Entertained
Over the week-end the Alberta team
were the guests of tbe Rooters' Club.
A basketball dance was staged ln their
honor Saturday night, with the success that always attends these affairs.
The Alberta squad attended In Christie
Sunday afternoon they were taken
on a car ride, visiting the University,
Stanley Park, and Shaughnessy
Heights. Before their departure Sunday night they were the guests at a
banquet In the Orovenor Hotel. Student executives attended and met the
squad Intimately, discussing collegiate
affairs. After the banquet they saw
Vancouver from the Hotel Vancouver
Koof Wardens. They left the city Sunday night with many expressions of
pleasure at the way they have heen
treated here. The wish they emphasized most was that they should be
playing the University of British Columbia on their next visit to the coast.
The entertainment committee wishes
lo thank heartily the following students who lent their cars for the conveyance of the Alberta team: Ruth
MacDonald, Isabel McTavlsh, Dorothy
Brown, George Ledlngham, Frank
Runge, Lloyd Harvey, Wllmer Hag-
garty, Hert Tupper, Harry Farrlsh,

Intermediates Lose
Freshmen do well te Beat Ex-King's 6-0
Varsity seniors suffered a severe
shock over the week-end when the
Frosh trooped up from the Lower
Brockton grounds and joyfully trebled
In their childish voices thu astounding
fact that they had at last won a game,
and not only that, won It from X-King
Qeorgo, last year's undefeated Intermediate champions. After assuring
the youngsters that it was not April
Fools' day, and still receiving protestations ot victory, the seniors paternally
patted the kiddles heads and assured
the Joyful youngsters that If they all
turned out next Wednesday they would
bo shown how to keep on winning
games. Apparently those members of
the Frosh team who played on the
intermediate rep. on Thanksgiving
Day were so highly delighted with the
taste of victory that thoy persuaded
their teammates that another little
taste wouldn't do any harm, and as
these children are very determined
they did not let the ball get inside
their own twenty-five once In the
whole battle. In addition the freckle-
faced little boy from the big hill called
Jack Richardson, whose middle name
is Star, managed to float the ball
in a big muddy puddle behind tbe
X-King Oeorge line tor the first three
points, while his pal, Helmer, not to
be outdone, kicked the ball between
the posts from a free kick, making
the final score 6-0.
Meralomas Bring Final Seer* te 11«4
The Varsity Intermediates had their
usual luck losing their game to Meralomas by a goal scored in the dying
moments of the game. Play was fairly
even throughout the game, a wet,
greasy ball forcing the play to be
mostly of the forward variety. The
Varsity scrum was hooking the ball
and securing It ln the lincouts, but did
not pack ln the loose. Ronny McKay
was forced out of the game through
injuries to his knee and proved a great
loss. Bush Olbbs who used to play
back ln the days ot Slats Carlisle and
Qee Ternan, made a charming little
debut, celebrating it in befitting manner by gouging through for the first
try. Ernie Bull, the small but savage
Varsity half, oozed across for the Varsity's second score, despite the reluctance ot the opposition to provide gangway. With the score tied at 6-6, Hed-
reen of the Meralomas, tore through
in the last minute of the game for a
try which he converted, bring tho final
score to 11-6.
The team was: Farrlngton, Hodglns, Hocken, McKay, Leask, Bull. La-
mont, Shields, Tolmie, McMillan, Arnold, Cilbbs, Jones.
Varsity lost a very hard-fought Badminton match to an Ex-Varsity team on
Saturday night. Tho match was made
possible largely through the kindness
of Mm. l'arllugton of the Garrison
Club. The shuttle-cocks were flying
in the Drill Hall until well past midnight. Miss Pound and Bill Argue
wero Varsity's best couple. The team
was composed of Misses D. Pound, D.
Porteous, K. Eddy, J. Leach, E. Gillies,
M. Bingay and Bill Argue, M. Mc-
Farlane, R. Noble, Ian Stevenson,
Jack Shakespeare and J. Allardyce.
On Thursday last, at noon, ln Arts
101, Mr. P. Keeling of Arts '28, gave
a very interesting and instructive
paper on "Calculating Machines," before a well-attended meeting of tho
Mathematics Club. Mr. Keeling showed it thorough knowledge of Ills subject and explained the mysteries of
his complicated figures with the ease
of an old college professor.
The next and dual meeting of the
Club will take place November 25, at
s p.m., at the home of Mr. Klcliimlwou.

Varsity came through to win all but
one league basketball game last week.
The Intermediate teams turned in
three wins,
The teams that suffered defeat were
V.A.S.C, Meraloma and Normal. The
Senior A won against the Rowing Club
and dropped a close one to the Adanacs. The girls won against the New
Westminster Y in a Senior A match.
The Senior B's dropped a practice tilt
to the Crusaders, but they met a real
classy team, one in fact, considered
the best lu the province.
A little comment on the Senior A
game. Varsity went into that game
with wrong psychology. Rowing Club
may be a weak team, but this was no
reason for Varsity entering the game
with too much confidence, it later
proved disastrous. We won 29-26, and
we should have done much better. The
Y floor is none too good, it is true,
but a little warning may prepare the
squad for the K.E.O.B.
How about the guards getting in the
scoring column. Remember it is a good
thing to see points in front of a
guard's name when Varsity Is playing
the present type of game.
