WILL VARSITY WHIP THE WARATAHS ?
AUSTRALIAN RUGBY STARS
MEET VARSITY TOMORROW
Varsity's second annual fame ot international prominence will get under
way to-morrow whon the flrst string team clashes with tho New South Wales
Waratahs.
Still smarting from their last defeai, the whole squad have been doing
the most conscientious training ot the year. Early morning proofless together with the regular afternoon grinds, which only finished yesterday, have
been tho last conditioning process ot Coaoh Jaok Tyrwhltt, and lt condition
is any criterion by whioh to lodge a
Formidable Adanacs
To Face Vanity
Last Saturday night before a crowd
et seven hundred people In the Hast*
tegs Park Horseohow Building, the
Adanacs Qualified to meet Varsity in
the looal hoop flnala by beating West*
minster by 80*13.
Varsity will have a real fight oa
their hands in view ot the faot that
the Adanacs were better than the
soore would seem to Indicate. They
are fully at fast as the Collegians and
have skill and fleshiness.
Butler, brother of Tanny, is perhaps
the most outstanding man. Fast and
httsky, he oan worry the best of for*
wards while accounting for a goodly
number ot points himself. Doug Fraser
fits in a good game at guard while
la speotaoulaf long-shots are always
{ood point getters.. Chick Hood and
lop Wllkle rate among the best forwards in tho olty. BUI Gtfford is going to give Ted MoBwen a lot of
trouble. Tho big blond boy outweighs
Ted hy a large margin, Is taller and,
it possible, rougher.
Varsity, however, has one of the
best balanced squads yet seen.
Henderson Is dependable at guard and
usually snares the odd basket. Tanny
Butler can hold down anyone while he
Often heads the scoring list At forward Orant is in perfect form and
Wally Mayers is one of the best tor*
Wards In the province. This pair Is
easily the best seen in the U.B.C. Ted
MoBwen at centre has improved so
much the last two months that he has
become one ot the best centres ln Van*
couver. He has speed, reach, a dead*
shot and he Is rapidly getting expert*
ence. Varsity's forte is the smooth
oombinatlon which has topped all other teams so far.
Since both teams usually work their
flrst string five over the full route,
tho games ought to be tbe best this
season. Varsity already has two wins
to their credit over the Adanacs but
one oan never tell what the Westminster boys can do. The first game
will be at tho Westminster Arena,
Tuesday, February 28th, at 9 p.m. The
students ought to get out and boost the
boys, at least In their home games.
DOCTOR LECTURES
ASPIRING MEDICOS
At a meeting ot the Pre-Modlcal
Club, on Friday, Dr. Seldon gave the
club some much-needed encouragement. The speaker quoted a resolution adopted by the Vanoouver Medical Association, favouring the inauguration of a three year course ln Medicine at the U. B. C. Thus with
the President and Faculty In favor of
the idea, there remain the Senate and
Oovernment to be converted.
Dr. Seldon commenced his address
by deploring the slackness in medical
training in Weetern Canada. This, he
said, was due to the lack of facilities
and to the lack of support, of medical
men.
The reasons he gave for the establishment of a school of Medicine here
were numerous. In the first place, the
University should be fully representative of the public. The Rockefeller
Foundation chose Vancouver as the
logical place for a medical school, and
with B. C. students being refused admission at Eastern Colleges, the time
has come for a Faculty of Medicine at
this University.
The cost, it has been estimated
would be only $30,000 a y9ar, exclusive
of equipment, for a course ln Anatomy, Physiology and Bio-Chemistry,
which would be the first throe courses
to establish. Once under way, the
school would be practically self-supporting, as endowments would bo
practically assured.
A College Hospital Is necessary for
the Medical Faculty, und that these
two should be established lu ono building Is a matter of common sense.
Alter Ills address, Dr, Seldon answered several questions, and closed
by saying that the question Is now
before the government and the Unl-
verlty Senate.
COUNCIL DISCUSSES
ELEGIBIUTY RULES
A special meeting of the Students'
Council was held on Thursday to discuss the new eleglbllity rules which
will come Into effect.
Three members of the faculty, Mr.
Jordan, Mr. Wood and Mr. Davidson
were present, and gave their opinions
on the question. Mr. Wood gave statistics showing that very few people
taking part In the Christmas Plays,
fall In the Christmas examinations.
It was then decided that the Christmas plays be classed as a minor activity and they will not be affected
by the new rules.
Both Council and Faoulty members
were wholeheartedly ln favor of the
regulations being adopted. Dr, David*
son expressed the sentiment of the
meeting when he declared that "U.B.
C. might Just as well get ln line with
regulations uf the other Institutions
in which we come ln touch," The
matter will be put to the students to
vote on at an Alma Mater meeting
In the near future.
PROPOSED  REGULATIONS OP
STUDENT ACTIVITIES
Council has considered for some
time the need of some elementary
regulations of student activities.
It Is felt that some regulations, not
too restrictive, are necessary for the
benefit of those few who do not impose their own restrictions. Consequently on Friday next, Council will
ask that the Alma Mater Society
authorise the Students' Council to pass
the following regulations In tho form
of a by-law.
1. Students of the first year be not
allowed to represent the University
in any senior activity, athletlo or liter*
ary, until they have shown by regular
examinations their ability to carry
on successfully thslr academic work.
(I.e. No Freshman may play on the
first team of any major sport nor take
part ln an inter-colleglate debate until after the Christmas examinations.
The Christmas Plays are a minor activity of the Players' Club. After
Christmas, regulations 3 and 4 will
apply.)
2. No studtnt whose academic
standing Ia incomplete be allowed to
represent the University on any activity which necessitates absence from
class.
(I.e. A student's academic record
must Im* clear before he may represent the University on any activity
calling for absence from class. Any
past. Bupplemeutals must have been
cleared off.)
3. No students be allowed to represent the University In any senior activity unless ha has full standing In
at least 80% of his required course.
(I.e. A student may take part In a
senior activity if he has supplemental
ln not. more than one-fifth of his required course. In most cases this
means one supp. ln a three-unit
course. More than this prohibits any
man from taking part in the activities
of tho first team of a major sport or
an Inter-colleglate debate or the
spring play, or the leading parts of
the Musical Society's spring concert.)
4. No student be allowed to engage
in any activity calling for competition
with organisations outside the University unless he has full standing In
at least 60% of his required course.
9. Students shall be limited in tha
number of activities In which thay
engage: That in no case shall a student whose academic standing la Incomplete carry on more than two activities and thttc shall be of different characters, I.e. Athletlo or Literary or Executive.
(I.e. This Is an extension of the
hy-law of March 30th, 1921. There
lias been a tendency for too few stud-
outs lo monopolize student activities
and omens, If a student is not cup-
able oi passing all his examinations
he Is not ca-peble of taking part in
more than two activities.)

President, Alma Mater Society.
Runners to Stage
Road Race Classic
Wednesday, March 7th, has been set
as the date of the Annual Track Club
Classic, the Arts '20 Relay. The event had been previously sot for Feb.
29th, but owing to the Waratah game
on that date, was put ahead a week,
This extra period will give some men
a better opportunity of getting into
shape, which may swing the result
of the race.
The course, of approximately eight
miles, Is the same as last year—from
the old University in Fairview to the
present site. There are eight laps and
the course is as follows: Starting at
the old Varsity or. 12th, along to Fir,
down to 9th, along to Cypress, down
to 4th, along to Tolmie, up to 10th,
out the boulevard, aud finishing at
a point on the Mall, opposite the Administration building.
Nine teams are entered: Arts '28,
Arts '29, Arts '30, Arts '31, Agrioulture,
Sc. '28-'29, Sc. '80 and So. '81 and Education. With eight men to a team,
there are several cars needed to transport these speed kings to and from
their laps. Gasoline will be paid tor
and anyone who can offer his or her
services Is asked to get in touoh with
Jack Wilson.
At present Arts '80 are the favorites, by virtue of three of their men,
Chappell, Qaudin aad Dunne, finishing In the first three places In the
recent cross-country run. With last
year's winners, Arts '27, out of the
way, the sophomores aro picked to
walk away with the race this year.
According to the dopesters, second
place will he fought out. between Arts
'29 and Science '30. The Juniors who
won the event as freshmen and placed
second last year, will be able to put
up a pretty strong argument this year.
They have Des Brisay, Todd and McDonald, among others, each of whom
has had running experience before,
Tho engineers have lined up a strong
squad, headed by Dill Selby, University Champion In the mile.
Arts '28 are determined to do something In their last, year, and have a
rather formidable aggregation lined
up: McWilliams, Bulger, Whlteley
and drown are among their lust men
and ihey have all luul previous experience In the relay Science '31 count
on Mulshing near the ;op and will trot
out a fairly strong team, headed hy
Thornber unci Legg, both of whom did
well In the cross-country run. Education have McLean and Elliott of the
famous '27 outfit and with the assistance of a few who are taking M. A.
work, will endeavor lo show the youngsters how a relay race should bo run.
The Frosh have the advantage of being unknown and there may be talent
among them which will upset all the
dope. Agriculture and Sc. '28 and '29
are also dark horses, and are causing
no little anxiety around the camps of
the Artsmen and Sc. '30.

Varsity has good odds of showing
the fast-stepping Waratahs some real
opposition.
On Saturday, Vancouver was defeat*
ed by the visitors in one ot the most
.evenly contested matches ot the year,
losing three points. Earlier in the year
the blue and gold took the "Rep"
scalp 11 points to 0.
Varsity has suffered due to Injuries*
and will feel the loss ot Capt. Tupper
who is out, due to a had ankle. Noble,
long a mainstay ot the scrum, has a
strained back and will not be seen ia
action tn this tussle. Mortis has net
recovered from a bad ankle,
i   THE TEAM
Pull-bsok—"Oord." Logan, So, 'SS
Logan is the most powerful tackier
on the Varsity squad. His powerful
kick will prove Invaluable In this game
as the International touch rules will
be played.
Seven-eighths—"Squid" Maclnnes,
Arts'2S
Maclnnes will advance from fullback to seven-eighths where his ability to take the ball on full run and his
spiral kicking will be of most value.
Maclnnes and Logan will form the
most powerful last line defense ln the
history of Varsity football.

The only Freshman on the squad.
Young   and   small   but   possessing  a
tricky swerve, fake pass and nice turn

Howard Eaton—Arts '28
Eaton has the reputation of being
the fastest man in Varsity and certainly lives up to lt on the rugby field. Unlike most rugby sprinters he is an indomitable tackier.
Allan Eetabrook, Sc. '31
Replacing Tupper on the wing is
Allan Estabrook, a dogged and deter*
mined tackier who will let little past
him.
Half Back—Bert Barratt, So. '31
Perhaps the most outstanding man
on the squad in his particular position.
If he plays hla usual game Jaok Tyrwhltt will be satisfied.
Forwards:
Ralph Farrls, Arts '28, and Jim Sinclair, Sc. '28, bave been chosen as
breakaways for the scrum because ot
their proven ability to round the
scrum and mess the opposing attack
before lt gets started. Farris Is playing his first major game but hie performances at practices have certainly
merited his choice.
Roger Wilson Arts '30 and John
Farrlngton Sc. '28 will be odd woight
and fight to the inside of the back line
ot the scrum,

the front rank of the scrum and can
be relied to got the ball out of their

CANADIAN RUGBY SYMPOSIUM
In place of editorial comment wo print in this issue statements
on both sides of thu question of CiiiiHtiinn Rugby by people who aro
qualified to express their opinion.
Prof. H. T. Logan, at the request of
tbe "Ubyssey," discussed the question
"Should Canadian Rugby be a major
sport f," but he desired that this expression of his opinions should In no
way Interfere with the principles of
student government,
first, he dealt with the term "major
sport," and what it Involves. He
pointed out that any gnme which is
made a major sport should be made
so purely for Its own merits, and not
for any external value which lt may
1VI     «.U^     VMOIUSI     THIHO     1TIIIUU    li    HWJ II        ls>«   Ll.O   Ifl-MO.    IIHUU   .b   .9   ^HVD.IUunuia
be given.  In short the interest should (whether Canadian Rugby will bo able
1
come before the prestige. /
This Interest should be detep enough
that the game would be popular
whether it Involved big blocks or not.
That Is, tha Interest should Insure permanency for some time to oome. This
permanency would involve tho supply
of new material as well as the demand
to see the game. And perhaps It would
be better to let the game itself develop a supply of players, than to
create this supply by an artificial demand such as by making a game a
major sport prematurely.
Thus the question of Canadian Rug*
by would rest to soma extent on tbe
interest and permanency of the game.
Muoh depends on the calibre of the
particular team each year, It ahould
be equal to the beat produced In our
part of the world.
These questions as pointed out by
Professor Logan are some of the
things to be discussed when the stu*
dents decide whether or not Canadian
Rugby is to be made a major sport.
Bdltor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
It Is not because I have no decided
views upon the advisibllity of making Canadian Rugby a major sport,
that I hesitate to accept your Invitation to express them in the columns
of the "Ubyssey." It seems to me
that this is simply a question for the
student body to decide upon, and
certainly, sot a queation that presents
any great difficulty. We aro all
earnestly seeking to promote within
the University, the quality of sport
that Inculcates the spirit of fair play
and self sacrifice which movod the
soccer club to Initiate this movement
/to raise Canadian Rugby to the status
of a major sport.
Unlike most of the other Canadian
Universities tho ellmatic conditions
here are such that foot-ball can hi*
played throughout the University
session. Any and all brands of foot
ball that succeed In Inducing mom
mon to turn out for athletics have
my fullest, support.
It In my personal opinion Unit any
minor sport thut attracts a squad of
players for practice five times per
week at 7.46 a.m. for a period of
nearly three years, and at the end
of this period can turn out a record
team ot twenty-three men in uniform
for an Intermediate game, should be
raised to a major status.
The winners of the Lipton Cup this
year were virtually inter-colleglate
champions of Western Canada. If
the students decide to make this game
a major sport, then It Is no strain
upon my imagination to look forward and see U.B.C. winning the
Intercollegiate Championship of Canada from McOlll, Queens or Toronto
Varsity.
I am yours sincerely,
0.  M.  SHRUM.
Dr. Davidson, in un Interview, ex*
pressed his views about Canadian Rugby on the question of making it a
major sport at this university.
"The interest which Canadlau Rugby has aroused," he said, "both in the
college itself und in the athletlo circles
ot the city would argue for Its being
mads a major sport. As a Canadian
sport, too, the interest and backing
which it has and will receive from
organisations would justify this step,"
On the other hand It Is questionable
to maintain its standing as a major
snort. Dr. Davidson pointed out that
It would be impossible to play regular
lnter*co!leg!ate matches under the existing conditions. The main objection
is the geographic isolation of Hrltlsh
Columbia from other Canadian universities. Thus the question is whether
or not the inter-city league provides
suitable opposition for a major sport
at this University.
UNIVERSITY CLUB
PLANSJLECTURES
The University Women's Club ot
Vancouver are planning two Monday
lectures In order to raise their annual
allotment towards the Scholarship
Fund Institutes by the Canadian Fed
eratlon of University Women's Clubs
The first lecture on February 37th will
be given by Prof. Clark Preacott
Blssett, Dean of ths Law School University of Washington, on "Mussolini,"
and the second on March 13th by Mr.
Otonn Hughes on "Eugene O'Neil,
America's foremost Dramatist." Mr.
Hughes ts himself a playwright, and
Professor of Dramatic Art In the University of Washington. Both lectures
will be given ln the Fairview Baptist Church at 8:80 p.m. and the
tickets are $1.06 for both lectures or
they may he obtained separately.
Editor-in-Chief, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
1 have been asked by your staff to
contribute to this issue a letter dis*
cussing the claims of Canadian Rugby
ss a Major Sport of U.B.C.
While I do not think I have anything new to bring into this discus*
sion, I might, perhaps, summarise
the Canadian Rugby situation. The
criteria generally used in judging aito the new game,
sport are: (1) popularity with the* *~ -1"*-* '* —
students and the public; (2) the success of the Varsity team in question,
and (9) the extent to which the Varsity participants are In earnest and
willing to work. If any sport stands
an examination according to these
three standards, it deserves Major
standing.
Now, the Soccer Club, which Is
suggesting that Canadian Rugby be
a Major Sport, and the Canadian
Rugby Club with its many supporters
contend that according to the standards named above, and, indeed, according to any others which might be
reasonably suggested, Canadian Rugby deserves this recognition. And,
although I am the most prejudiced
person on the campus, I do not see
how anyone can very wel! deny the
sport this standing. I am leaving
U.B.C. this year, and, quite sincerely.
I would not support any movement
which I believed to bo prejudicial to
tho welfare of my Alma Mater. I am
therefore, I hope, unselfish In my
riotlvrM In this thing.
To consider, then, how Canadian
Kugliy approaches those standards, It
Is obvious In connection with the
llrst, that In no sport on the campus
has there been bettor support or
more Interest than In Canadian Rugby
this year. This Is true both among
tho students and, thank you, In the
columns ot your paper. Our student
attendances were high, Increasing as
the season progressed to the climax
of the Rough Rider series when seven
hundred students saw each of the
two games.
The success of the Club Is also, I
think, unquestionable. Is there any
need to comment on the Club's
achievements in British Columbia
and Western Canada circles.
As to the third criterion, Canadian..
Rugby Is, and has been since its be-" honour
glnnlngs, the hardest working sport
on the campus. If a sport has as one
of its aims the physical training of
its players, the daily practices In this
sport are worthy of consideration.
This is all about local conditions.
There Ih one thing else. U.B.C. Is eligible for playoffs with the Western
Canada Intercollegiate Rugby Union
and with the other Unions affiliated
with the National body. Canadian
Rugby is a Canadian University game.
In the tall of the year It is tha Canadian University game. That in Itself Is sufficient.
Very sincerely yours,
MAX CAMERON,
President Canadian Rugby Cluh.
Editor of the "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
When thinking of elevating Canadian Rugby to a Major Sport lt
would be well to consider the merits
of other clubs before thoy were
elevated to this rank.
English rugby was the flrst sport
In the University and naturally when
the letter awards system came into
force they were the flrst major sport,
The club has held Its position through
consistently fielding good teams and
last year they demonstrated their
merits when they held a world
famed team the "Maoris" to 12-3, the
score In the last half being 3 all. This
year's sorles with the Waratahs is
proving that the calibre of English
Rugby Is us good here as any where
in the world.
Soccer was the second major sport
and they were elevated to this position after winning the Mainland Cup
nnd the II, C. championship. To win
tills event meant playing real soccer,
It was an achievement of no small
measure, and the players deservedly
received the highest athletic reward
our University gives.
Next comes our first Basketball
team, Thoy wero given well earned
"big blocks" after losing the Canadian Championship by 2 points ln 61,
proving conclusively that Varsity had
a first class basketball team.
Now let us consider "Canadian
Rugby." In every other sport a
player has at least three years previous experience before coming to
Varsity and with this experience it
usually takes two years to make a
first team. In Canadian Rugby it
appears that a green man, who has
never seen a Canadian Rugby ball
before, can after two weeks practise
make his place on the first team,
For this thoy want to be given the
most coveted award ln the University.
As for the standard of tho Canadian game here, It Is much tower than
In the Prairie Provinces. The
Prairie teams stand no show whatever with the Eastern Universities,
and they in turn can not be compared with the Yankee teams to the
South.,
V Moreover, there is no chance of the
standard being Improved as high
school teachers are not in favour of
the Canadian game for their students,
and say that they will never change
Notice to Students
Exchange Tickets for the
Spring Play are now on sale
and may be procured either from
members of the Players' Club
or from the Box Office, In tho
Auditorium Building.
In short, it would be an injustice
to every other Major Sport in the
University to bring Canadian Rugby
up to this level.
Yours sincerely,
BERT TUPPER.
Editor of the "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
At your request I am writing my
views on Canadian Rugby as a major
sport.
Of course I am not In favour of it.
I am for English Rugby, as the only
major football in this university, first
and last, and I hope that the follow
Ing reasons will show that my sent!
ments are not purely prejudice.
Our record for the past five years
shows that we are playing "real"
rugby. First the All Blacks with
their miracle team, showed us what
rugby was. Then came the Maoris
—a team beaten only three times in
thirty games with all the international
clubs in the world. Here we showed
that we had profited by the All Black
lesson, and we proved to the rugby
world that our standard is second to
none, Finally' the Waratahs have
assured us that our teams In B. C.
are equally as strong a3 the major
Ity that they havo played on their
tour.
As a rosu.lt of these great steps the
University is at last going to send
a rugby team to distant parts ot the
world. Next year a team is to be
sent to New Zealand and New South
Wales. Even In Japan mgby is
played and only a month ago we received an Invitation to send a team
there with all expenses paid.
When this University sends a team
to represent it in these countries it
must be the best. We will be in the
eyes of all the world and we must
prove ourselves to be equal to the
Two major nigbys In the
University will not permit this. The
obvious conclusion Is that Canadian
rugby must wait till It has proved itself worthy of the highest award
that this University gives to sports.
I believe that Canadian rugby
executives and players have done
wonders In lifting the game as they
have, and that thoy have much credit
coming to them, hut it is surely obvious that Canadian Rugby as now
played In not a major sport.
Yours sincerely,
DON FARItlS.

Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
For several years a group of interested energetic students of this university have been devoting time and
energy to the furthering of a really
Canadian game—Canadian Rugby. The
time has now come when their efforts seem to have been rewarded.
Canadian Rugby has become probably the most popular game on the
campus. It only remains to grant
the sport official recognition as a
major sport—which indeed it now is
In everything but name.
Undoubtedly, there will be opposition to any move in this direction, as
there always Is to any progressive
move. But there can be very little
foundation for any such opposition,
even by the most conservative,—or
shall we say prejudiced,—among us.
After all, the real criterion by which
a major sport is chosen, Is popularity among the student vbedy. Canadian Rugby has attracted larger
crowds in past games than any
other sport has done for years. The
attendance at the games wtth the
Regina "Roughriders" was sufficient
to warrant the establishment of Canadian Rugby as the first sport al our
university, let alone giving it a plate
of equality with Track, Basketball
and   English Rugby.
Mot cover, Canadian Rugby Is a
game devised by Canadians, (or Canadians and played by Canadians
alone. It Is a truly national game.
Can we, a university of Canada,
ignore it?
The majority of other universities
of Canada have recognized it as
their most important,—their best
sport. If we are to hope over to
meet our Western neighbors as
equals in Intercollegiate competition,
we must adopt ourselves to their
lines of athletic endeavor. At
present, if we wish Canadian inter-
colleglate competition, we must
bring a team from the eastern
boundaries of Canada, and lose
hundreds of dollars by so doing. By
all means, let us choose a more
congenial, more popular, and less
expensive medium for athletic competition with Canadian Universities.
Even at the present time, after
some four years of existence, the
standard ot playing ability at our college, is as high ns that of any of our
other major sports. Our Big Four
team is acknowledged the best, ln
B. C. and one ot the three best In
Western Canada. Does that appear
to be the status ot a minor sport?
The recognition which tho Canadian Rugby Club ts seeking, is one
which they deserve and one which
will benefit our university's standing
among Canadian Universities. The
game has become far too popular, too
Important to be classified longer as
a minor sport. In due fairness to the
Club, to the players and to ourselves,
we must make Canadian Rugby a
major sport.
Yours sincerely,
STEWART REID.

Caf. Monopoly
Is Threatened
Long has our Caf. nourished and
flourished, long has It fed the worshippers of the god of nutriment: that awful deity that so often demands human
sacrifice, Dut from across the campus comes the beckoning lure of newer
and fairer fields in which the seekers
of refreshments can browse. In the
last issue of the Ubyssey there appeared (Ah! insidious, sneaking propaganda) with the calm complacence
of an old establishment the startling
announcement that the "Union College Dining Room Service" would supply luncheons and dinner for much
less than a dollar, ln fact only the Insignificant of thirty-five cents.
Naturally rivalry has sprung up between the two grills. No more will
Iouk queues form up at the steaming
counters ol our food bargain basement. The new adherents bow down
In convulsive anii ecstatic joy In adoring a newer Idol. In paroxysms of
t'ronzleil adulation they cry out hoarsely until the very moon rocks with tholr
barrieil moans. Before the ceremon-
ous consumption of the libations the
cacophonius choirs dwindle down to
silence, but after the nutrifylng process the worship breaks forth again
and the Musical Society turns green
with envy,
The faithful ones are going to attempt to stem the changing tide of
taste. By bombastic orators at pep
meetings they will try to arouse sympathy for the weakening Caf. Promises of better coffee will be hurled at
scoffing students. But we fear that
all will be In vain. For the unscrupulous Union College dieticians
have taken an unfair advantage—they
give their diners two helpings.

SCRIVENERS TO GET
AWARDS
At a special session last week the
Publications Board in conclave decided to reward the hard-working den-
Isens of the Pub. Office with a mark of
merit,—a pin.
The exact form of this pin Is at
present unknown, but a specially appointed committee is now at work
choosing a design. For the Feature
Department this pin will probably
take the form of the Indian vs. Devil
Road Race that appears above the
Muck Page every week. As an alternative there Is the suggestion of a
design consisting of a copy of College
Humor and a pair of scissors.
For the Pub. in general probably a
typewriter would be the best emblem,
although many favor a fountain pen.
Others contend thnt the most appropriate symbol would be a mob-scene
with a few torn Ubyssey's In the
fore-ground. One cynic HUKgesteil that
a waste paper basket would do the
paper juslice.
As to the distribution of these
awards, the cub reporters will receive bronze pins and the assistant
editors and business department will
get silver emblems. Oold pins will
be the reward of the senior editors
while the editor-in-chief will sport an
enamel badge. Finally, the Feature
Department will be prsented with a
jewelled motif ln a platinum setting.
Of course, it must be understood
as there Is no representative of tbe
that these plans are only tentative and
Muck Department on the committee
It ia quite likely than an inferior system will be devised whereby the unfortunate Feature writers will be given
mere gold plus.

THE LEAP YEAR 1ALL
First Impression—Yesterday
A swell Idea, this Leap Year Bailor so It seems to me.
I havo no worries   none at all;
I hnve no taxi-men to call;
My hunk account's not going to rail.
Or so lt seems to bo.
Second Impression—Today
This Leap Year dunce Is not ho tiot
As once It seemed to mo.
There were some things that 1 forgot,
My costume's going to cost it lot,
Hy gosh! I know this (lance Is not
What once H seemed to bo.
Third Impression—Tomorrow
Whoopee!    LoI'h go, I'm feeling great.
This hop's the stuff for me.
The dance Is on, the hour Is late.
I've danced wilh Jean, Rubella, Kato,
And Dora's made a heavy date
At 'Love's" Its going to be.
Fourth Impression—Ths Day After.
It's 12 o'clock—I'm still ln bed.
And hero I'm going to be
Until I only feel half-dead
Or till 1 lose my aching head.
Ten hours ago my airy tread
Was gliding where my partner led.
"Oet off my toe" she coldly said.
I wish I'd stayed at home Instead.
I've had enough of "fair co-ed;"
She's far too hot for me.

Critic Lectures on
Music to Students
"Listening to Muslo" was the
subject chosen by Mr. R. Jamieson
of the "Province" for his muslo lecture on Friday afternoon. A special
feature ot the leoture was the Ortho-
phonic, loaned by the J. W. Kelly
Piano Co., whioh was used to Illustrate the speaker's comments.
Tn opening, Mr. Jamieson mentioned that different kinds ot music
have a different effect upon the emotion of the listener. After hearing a
musical performance one should
think ths matter over before expressing aa opinion. Many people
are displeased with a musical con*
cert because they fancy to sit where
muslo Is being performed to hear it.
Really to appreciate a selection, bow-
ever, one must listen to it latently.
Further to emphasise his point, Mr.
Jamieson said, "Only half the muslo
is created hy the performer, the
other half by the listener." Every
criticism on a musical performance
should be respected, provided that It
is sincere, and that comparison and
discrimination have been used. "Practice alone makea perfect in listening
aa well ea lu performing/'
Mr. Jamieson said that ensemble
singing must be sung as one voice;
the membera of a choir should aim
at obtaining this effect. Tbe speaker
than went on to say that it Is only
when .we oome to the higher emotional muslo that the strong differ-
ance between alert listeners becomes
Sionifest. To illustrate this point Mr.
omteson bad two seleotlons played
on the Orthophono; the flrst was a
Jail piece, whioh immediately produced ths effect that the speaker de*
Sired; the second was "Ave Maria"
which touched the devotional feeling
8! the audience. Mr, Jamieson re*
arked that the flrst selection re*
auired no mentality to follow it, while
ie other aroused the desire to hear
lt again; the one caused the heels
to etlr, the other oompelled attention.
Mr. Jamieson then discussed
Maurice Ravel's reoltal given recently in Vanoouver, The speaker
said that no musician, however gifted
should attempt to play his own works.
Mr. Jamieson then caused several
selections to be played on tbe Ortho-
phonic; Schubert's pieces played by
the Philadelphia Orchestra; "The
Unfinished Symphony," and Chopin's
"Polynese In A sharp."
In closing Mr. Jamieson urged Dr.
Macdonald to develop this Idea   of
music lectures in the University.

STUDENT CHESS HOUNDS
DRAW WITH PROFESSORS
Thursday evening saw a most sanguinary Chess Match staged at tbe
Union College between four members
of the Faculty and four staunch upholders of the Chess Club's prestige.
Dr. Shrum welcomed the gladiators
from the Upper Common Room and
having seen that his guests received
a stimulating dinner, rallied his fellow professors around him and led
the way to the scene of battle. Dr.
Shrum engaged to play Plant of the
Club, while Mr. Sayer and Rod. Pllkington rolled up their sleeves at another board Discoursing all the while
upon certain aspect u of political
science, Mr. Angus agreed to attempt
to take Denis Carstairs into camp,
while Mr. Preston Melllsh and Orevllle
Rowland drew swords in deadly earnest at another table. Dr. Shrum's
thoughts began to stray upon subjects
relating to fourthrdimenslon posslr
bllitles with the result that Plant leaped upon him, and succeeded in effecting his extinction. "Thumbs down,"
was also the opinion of the gallery
when Mr. Sayer's position was examined. However, the professors were
more successful upon the other boards,
Mr, Angus gaining a strangle hold
upon Carstairs, and Melllsh gleefully
stabbing Rowland through the heart
again and again with well-thought-out
moves.
Correspondence
The Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Madam:
I would be much obliged if you
should see fit to allow me a small
space ln your correspondence column
in order that I might point out a
very evident reason why Canadian
Rugby should be promoted to a
major sport this year.
Apart from the fact that this
athletic activity has been Immensely
popular with the student body in the
past, season, lt Is worthy of atten*
tion to note how keenly Interested
the players themselves have been.
When a group ot men, without previous experience, con turn out and
face the discomforts of early morn*
!ng practices with a grim determination to make a real game out of a
minor sport, then tbe rest of us can
certainly assure ourselves that there
is a fascination influencing these
men.
Fascinations are contagious and to
any of us who are familiar with the
sports ot the east and middle-west,
will tome the realisation that the
Canadian Rugby germ has become
extremely prevalent In those parts.
And It is not confined to the players.
For example, when Toronto or McOlll put their teams to field, every
available seat and standing space In
the Stadium Is filled and the whole
college Is there. College spirit is
natural and not artificial or forced.
My point Is briefly this: a major
sport which oan Interest, absorb,
thrill the whole student body, Is the
one and only factor which con foster
a healthy, voluntary college spirit
Canadian Rugby has served this
purpose ln many of the colleges
spread across the country. Give tt a
chance here.
Yours very truly.
F. T. KEELING.
Bdltor, "Ubyssey!"
Dear Madam:
It Is with some trepidation that I
support and enlarge upon your editorial concerning the Leap Year Ball.
It ts becoming only too apparent
that such faith as we have had In
the commonsense of the the co-eds
was misplaced. Above all things else
a university education should give
one an approximation to a true sense
of values and it is when we roalize
their shortcomings, I am only going
to refer to two things which I believe
Illustrate the present state of warped
Judgments. In the flrst place there
is the matter which you mentioned
in your editorial, namely the 'before'
or 'after' parties. From careful observation I have come to the conclusion that the average student is
able to bear comfortably only those
expenses directly connected with social functions and the Imposition (for
that is what it amounts to) of extras
most unfairly faxes his resources.
Now, here, was an opportunity for
the co-eds to show that these 'extras'
are entirely unnecessary (as they
really are) to make a successful and
enjoyable ball. To our dismay, however, we find them not only subscribing to tho unnecessary and burdensome features but carrying them to
extreme lengths.
The second matter of Import is the
management of the ball itself and one
expected the co-eds to demonstrate
their ability to avoid certain deleterious features which aro creeping into
our social customs. I refer, Madam,
to the habit of arranging for dunces
prior to the ball. It ahould ho evident that the value of social events
lies chiefly in the opportunities they
give for social Intercourse and the
development of a larger circle of
acquaintances. The present system
considerably reduces these opportunities for in the haste to All the programs the people best known are
called upon. The co-eds have in this
connection once again gone far beyond the questionable actions of the
men for we find them preparing their
programs weeks previous to the event
so that the element of novelty or of
chance is reduced to minimum. Oreat
Is the fear of competition in nonessentials.
Your truly,
AB. WHITELY.

Arts Ruggers Snuff
Out Science Men
The first inter-faculty Canadian Rugby game ended in 27-21 victory for
Arts last Saturday, Tho Science team
though strong In the line, could not
catch the flashy Arts back-field. Bur*
ley, Odium and Camoszi bucked tbe
line for Sclenoe but their gains were
not consistent, and were speedily cancelled by long runs by the Arts backs.
The game was loose because of lack
ot practice and training. Fumbles were
frequent, and added Interest to the
proceedings. However, some good
football was forthcoming, the contest
being featured by aggressive tackling
and individual play.
Wentworth started the scoring by
making a touob down after a seventy-
yard run ln tho first five minutes.
After that Arts had the best of the
play, the quarter ending 11*0 ln their
favor.
The second quarter belonged to
Science who wero able to obeck up two
touchdowns, tbe half-time score being
11*10.
In the last halt Arts scored three
touch-downs, converting one, making
their soore 27 points, Todd was responsible for ten ot these points,
Shields for five, Wentworth tor five
and Parker tor five, this lost coming
after a beautiful sixty-yard run around
the left end, Helmer made the lone
convert, and one deadline kick.
Sclenoe made two touohdowns after
consistently gaining ground by bucking tbe frail Arts line. Burley crossed
the line twice, showing the boys how
Queen's men use the straight arm.
Odium also did some fine backing and
chalked up a touch-down for the Red
and White. Cummlngs used bis speed
ln scooping up two fumbles and load*
Ing the Art's defence for two touch*
downs. Sandy Smith unoovered his
drop-kick for a Science convert.

junior soccer men
On Saturday last, Varsity Junior
Soccerites lost a hard game to Sunny-
side 2-0. Varsity were outplayed for
most of the game but splendid work
by Fernlund and Mackensle, saved
them from a bad beating. As it was
Sunnyside scored once ln each half
and their clever forwards gave the
Varsity defender's a heavy afternon's
work.
Although Robson put ln some good
work he nullified this by being frequently out of position. Fernlund,
playing with a badly Injured knee,
turned in a glorious performance,
while Mackenzie, in an unusual position, played first clasa football.
Varsity were represented by McGregor Fernlund, Mackenzie, Sanderson, Robson Price, Wright, Wright,
Mitchell, McKellar England.
U.B.C. BEATS WEST-END
The feather game between B team
and West End, was played off Saturday night, at the Drill Hall. Delay
proved eventful for Varsity, as they
walked over their opponents 17-4. For
the men, Shields, ln spite of minor Injuries from Hugby, played a great
game; and Kerlin, who had played for
A Team In the afternoon, was still
up lo top form in whacking the feather ut might. Jean Loach deserves
much credit, as this proved her best
game ot  the year.
Saturday did not prove itself as
fruitful for A team. Although their
game with Kerrisdale ln the afternoon almost resulted In a tie, they
were finally forced down to a 18-11
defeat.

Second Soccer Squad
Scores Another Draw
Varsity's second division soccer
team annexed another point by virtue
of a thrilling come-back in the second half on Saturday.
The boys were two goals down at
the finish of the first half although
they had a slight edge on the play as
a whole. The forwards could not
seem to take advantage of their opportunities and several glorious dunces to score wore lost by poor finish*
ing. The second half was exceedingly fast and productive of much better
football. Varsity had a deolded edge
In this period and outscored Cedar
Cottage 3-1 to tie the soore. Mel.
Qaudin scored the flrst for the Blue

SOCIETY OF THOTH
When the scribes of Thoth met laat
Thursday noon, Scribe F. Underbill
read an interesting paper on the subject: "The Demerits of the Ubyssey."
Mr. Underhlll set out to criticise the
college paper, and to suggest where
Improvements might be made. Most
of the reports on the front page were
good, be said, except that far too
much spaoe is allotted to write-ups on
games, suggested that letters and editorials should be more "concise, brief,
and pithy."
Once in a while there Is a "gleam of
light" on the Muck-Page. On the
whole he thought that the matter, and
manner of statement of the "Ubyssey"
could be greatly improved.
