STUDENTS COUNCIL
HOLDS MEETING
At its flrst regular meeting the Students' Council attacked the great mass
of routine work connected with the
opening of the new session. Following the adoption of the minutes of
the various executives, the standing
committee on discipline (re by-law,
Feb. lti, 1925) was endorsed for the
coining year, and Council representatives to the Joint Committee on Student   Affairs  were  appointed.
After bills and correspondence had
been disposed of, the ticklish problem of the Freshman costumo was
brought up. Considerable debate, pro
and con, look place over the "gob"
lint. Finally It was decided that bow
ties and bands would be the Frosh
costume until the class party lu the
spring. It is hoped, however, by some
of Council, that hats of some kind,
ahapelcBs or otherwise, will be Introduced before another year has passed.
A code of permanent and temporary regulations for tho Frosh was
drawn up, and placed in the hands
of the Sophomores, who are very capable and very willing to enforce both
the spirit and the letter of the law.
A new attempt Is being made this
year to exclude outsiders from the
Freshman reception.

for all organizations interested in

Mud. discussion was carried on by
the representatives present but It, was
thought wise to leave the elections
of the exctitive over until Friday
when the second meeting Is to bo
called.
There will probably be eight teams
In tbe League this year. They will
be: U, B. C, Varsity, Parliamentary
Debating Society, the Law Students,
Y.M.C.A., Young Conservatives, Young
Liberals, and tbe Rotary Club.
II was decided that teams shall
be limited to two men and that no
postponement of debates shall be allowed,
A new feature will probably be
tried out In the coming season In the
form of a mock trial. For this event
the Law- Students will provide the
legal talent while the other members will furnish the jury, the criminals,  and the audience.
As some Utile difficulty was encounter, -d In framing resolutions last year
ll was decided Ihat the public should
be asked to make suggestions. If any

EX-KING GEORGE
FLAW VARSITY
With otie victory tucked away under their belts Varsity's senior rugby
lea ui goes forth to battle Ex-King
George to-morrow confident of making
It two straight. In view of the
strength of the other teams In tho
league it has been decided to merge
the Arts aud Science teams into one,
Tho resulting squad should be the
class of the city.
Bill Locke will again be fullback
this gamo. Eaton aud Taylor, two of
the fastest inon in Varsity will play
wing wtth GustafHon und Barnott inside throes. Ronny McKay will lead
tho buck field from the five-eighths
position. Mclntyre will play receiving half with Tapper directing the
mi und us wing forward.
Tho green and black aggregation
will butt bonds with tho heaviest Varsity scrum of recent years. White
and Forrester hooking, Kldd locking,
Noblo and Mahon second line and
Willis and Brown last line, form a
close-packing coterie of fighting fools,
If It rains the superior strength of
this scrum should win while If it la
dry the fleet backfleld ahould do the
trick.
Fifty-four men squelched and oozed
around In the mud and rain at the
Wednesday practice, some promising
material showing up. Two intermediate teams will be fielded Saturday. Freshmeu playing Seaforths and
Varsity playing Ex-Techs, at Strath
cona at 2.15. Both teams aro In good
shape and should emerge on top in
the opening games.
A little moro support from the sidelines would be appreciated by the
senior team. Barely twenty Varsity
rooters saw tho teuinB, playing with
only fourteen men most of the game,
defeat an older nnd heavier team last
Saturday. Their opponents this Saturday are tho best squad in town, so
get out and root at the senior game,
Brockton Point at 2.15.
Soccer Game Saturday
at Hastings Park
Out nt the Hastings Park Oval at
2.30 p.m. on Saturday, there will be
a soccer game well worth seeing. The
University First Team will oppose the
formidable Westminster United; and
when these two teams coino together,
the result should more than reward
any Varsity supporters who turn out
to  see   (he  contest.
It Is well to remember what the
Soccer Club has accomplished for tho
I'niverslty in (he past. Not only has
it done much towards adding to our
coll'dion of silverware, but, what Is
a far greater accomplishment, it has
established a record of clean sportsmanship for the I'niverslty of British
Columbia. So if there are any who
value this reputation, let ua show our
support by attending this game on
Saturday at the Hastings Oval.
The Varsity lineup will be: Keenleyslde, crute, Baker, Cant, Phillips,
Ledingham, Warden, Berto, Mayers,
Newcombe, and Kmery,
It is fitting to mention here that
this soccer team Is In need of the
services of a trainer. A new manager, also, Is needed for the third
team, us the present managor is only
tilling this position temporarily. Any
persons interested tn this work are
requested to see Stan. Qale, President of the Soccer Club, as soon as
possible.

Freshmen who have boon waiting
iiuxlouHly for Information regarding initiation will doubtless be pleased to
learn that tho committee haa drawn

liotH who venture to broak any of

Players Club Try-0ut»
on Wednesday Noon
The Quarrel  Scene in "School
for Scandal" is Chosen.
All those trying out for the Players Club met on W slnesday noon at
Arts ion. Although there are onlv
thirty vacancies In this popular Club,.
one hundred and sixty students wero
present. In the matter of number thfr
sterner sex will have the advantage,
for while there are fifteen to be selected from their fifty-four, only the
sianie small number will be chosen
from the one hundred and seven coeds,
A very Important change has taken
place In the try-out parts this year.
The Judges have decided It would be
a physical and mental impossibility
to listen again to the oft repeated "I
don't believe you yet," from "The
Twelve Pound Look." Therefore this
part has been changed to the quarrel
scene between Sir Peter and Lady
Teazle from Act Two, Scene One, of
"The School for Scandal." The part
for two girls, taken from A. A. Mllne'a
"The Romantic Age," remains the
y a nte.
Mr. Wood, the coach, explained all
ibis and then stated that those trying out will be Judged on the four
points of voice, poise, gesture, and
Intelligence "They must think out
tin- character and reconstruct li with
iheh own personality thrown In," he
said.
The try on is will take place In the
Auditorium next Tuesday and Wed-

A WORD FOR THE FRESHMAN
While tho Freshman class is boinn put to-morrow to tho Orst loop
of the undergraduate steeplechase, wo wish to make n few remark*
in recognition of the sporting spirit and good nnttiro of the average
member of that clans; these attributes havo in tlio punt boon consistently in evidence at initiation nnd over n certain period of years
were displayed even when the ucremony made rather serious demands, not only upon good humour, but even upon self-respect, It
should flrst be understood thnt wo ure resigned to the fact thnt the
ceremony of initiation is regarded popularly (and possibly just ns
mistakenly) as essential to tho genesis in the Freshman broast of
"college spirit." Be that ns it may, we arc of the opinion that, if
the trials of initiation aro such ns to antagonize the Freshman, or
Affront his dignity, much will have boon lost to us, in tho resulting
destruction of his good disposition; mid "college spirit," whatever
it may be, will obviously remain unborn.
It is to be hoped, then, thnt tho committee in charge has been
wise in its preparation*. From past experience, thoy should have
been assured of the best sporting spirit in tho Freshman during tho
ordeal; and the programme of the committee should have been drawn
Up, allowing due credit to this spirit. Any ridiculous restrictions of
personal liberty are unwarranted nnd ill-timed, doing more harm
than good. These restrictions, which have in former year* been in
evidence, are, we trust, now eliminated; and initiation has at last
become a sane introduction of tho Freshman to his Alma Mater, embodying all the virtues of former ceremonies and none of the shortcomings.
co-operation in library
If we are to juds,e by the number of books which arc out of the
library we must come to the ultimate conclusion that at this early
period in the session some students are settling down to study. Not
only, moreover does it seem that they arc getting down to work with
conscientious energy but also that they are starting a private library
of their own by a process of accumulation. Certain students seem
to have developed a mania for drawing all the books on a given
topic out of the library at the one time. This practice is of no benefit to the student drawing out the books, but it certainly does cause
a great deal of inconvenience to others who are desirous of obtaining
one or two of the same books. It is just as easy for a student to take
out one book at a time and return it in a couple of days as it is to
take out half a dozen and have them lying around at home or in the
lockers for a week. Tho reason for tho existence in the library of a
number of books on one topic i.s not only to give different sides of
the same subject, but also to provide facilities by means of which a
number of students may study the same subject at once. If through
the thoughtlessness of some book "hog," students are hindered in
their efforts to consult these books, one of the chief purposes of the
library is defeated, It is importntit, ihen, for students to remember
that others are equally anxious to consult books, and that by taking
only their share they will not only do justice to fellow students,
but will also help in ensuring better reference facilities to the University as a whole.
IMPROVEMENTS-
NEWDRY KILN
Two years ago tho Forestry Department instituted a study of "season
losses" in drying lumber.
A man was sent to the principal
mills of the coast to make a special
study ot this phase of the Industry.
Following that, classes wore held tn
Victoria and Vancouver, six at eaoh
place, with an average attendance of
one hundred people. To make tho
work more effective the need of nn
experimental kiln wa* felt greatly.
Finally, the approval of the Department of Public Works waa secured,
and a fine kiln erected which haa a
capacity of 3,000 hoard feot.
It was originally planned to have
the building heated hy a pipe from
the power house, but, after due consideration, a small ten-horsepower
bol lor with an oil burner was Installed
for this purpose.
The cost of the heating equipment,
steam plant, control Instruments, air
compression, etc., will ho borne by
the Forestry Products Laboratory lu
accordance with a standing agreement
with the University. The letter provides the building, light anil power;
and the laboratory supplies equipment, In addition to the kiln, which
Is constructed of hollow tile, provision
Is made for a storage room adjoining
It, where a charge of lumber may be
assembled prior to and following, the
actual drying. During the drying process tho room will bo available for
members of the lumber Industry, or
students of forestry to observe, under

A REPLY TO "CIVITAS"
Editor "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
In reply to "Clvitas," I muat explain that the Constitution of the Students' Parliament does not compel
parties to be formed, but merely provides a definite method ot organising
parties If required.
If a majority of members in the
Students' Parliament are Independents, there will be no actual change
of ministry in the case of a division,
unless this ministry Is partisan.
Parties are Intended to he a natural
growth among momhers who agree on
common principles. If thoy cannot
agree, It will ho perfectly simple to
conduct tho Parliament without the
Party System.
The Students' Parliament Is Intended tn bo a fairly accurate reproduction of actual governing bodies, but
the actual development of details
rests entirely among the members
themselves.      ~-F. C. PILKINOTON

widely rend works - "The Idiot,"
"Crime and Punishment," and "The

CONFESSIONS OF
A CO-ED
Dear Matilda Jane:
I promised to wrlto nnd tell you
what I thought of this one bustling
Canadian Varsity, and as, this is a
math, period I think I'll do It now so
that you can got some of the real
atmosphere.
What thoy all rave about here Is
the Players' Club. I heard there
were thirty vacancies in it. "Uhum,"
thought I, "I wouldn't mind, myself,
playing around with a couple of thOBe
good looking sophomores."
So yesterday I went at twelve and
parked In the front row on the right
of the left hand side (do you get that),
nnd waited for them to come aud elect
me. Well, would you believe It, one
hundred and seven other girls evidently had the same Idea, the dumbbells! The boys had moro sense—
there were only fifty of them.
Well after all these people had
trooped and jumbled themselves in,
a dark man gave us the longest lecture. Ho talkod about saying "ye
gods" at people's voices. Now ma,
who comes from Idaho, sings just
great, nnd my voice Is just like hers,
so I don't have to worry my head
there. Then he callod down people
who do tho Charleston. 1 do wish I
could give him a lesson or two In
that. Say, and do you know, he
knows a step called St. Vitus? It
sounds good.
I was so busy figuring It out f lost
the last part of his lino. Something
about being real snappy in the tryouts, or was it about getting a good
character to try out with? But It
couldn't have been that, for he went
on to hand us our partners. At least
bo read them off a book.
Well I sat there trembling and smiling, feeling sure he'd got that look I
telegraphed about that boy with the
chin. At last he called Gwendolyn
K-Unclesam—Matthew Knuffman. I
rose to my feet, but nil of a sudden
I felt all quaky Inside. That Matthew,
my dear, that Matthew, had freckles,
warts, and spectacles! Well It didn't
take me two seconds to decide there
wns no doubt about It, that that old
Players' Club was rotten,
I Just picked up the nearest book
and slung it at that Matthew, and,
my dear, even yet,
Your girl friend,
Gwendolyn K-Unclesam,
Is MAD.        (M.  W.)

Litany Coroner
TO A CAFETERIA PIE
lOnlhroned in golden glory on a plate,
Beneath   the  foamy  froth   that  forms
thy crown;
In   austere   haughtiness   thou   seernst
to frown
With dignity that doth befit the great.
Unrealized thy dread impending fate.
To  be  by  freshman   cherubic  gulped
down.
To leave the world, not having won
renown.
O, piteous end!    O' what just cause
for hate!
O,   gentle   poet,   do   not   grieve   thy
heart!
Thy tears are wasted although
sympathetic.
Dire vengeance will I wreak with all
my heart,—
Contortions and convulsions most
athletic.
My golden lemon curd will do it* part
With zest,  for it is chemically
synthetic. —R. A. P.
FASHIONS
Old clothes will be a la mode for
Saturday's function among the younger
set. Plus fours, however, are not so
popular as shorts.
Bow ties, preferably the latest shade
of sap green will be adopted by many
fashionable young men. They are especially becoming for such smart occasions as the Freshmen's Reception.
Pretty green ribbons, so delightfully conspicuous last year, are likely
to bo revived for sleove ornaments.
Tho highest fashion authorities, how-
evor, have not decreed any definite
ruling on this point.
A pleasing Innovation In college attire Is a smart white placard, about
one foot square, to be worn on the
back. This is "just the thing" for the
younger atudenta, who have conceived
the charming Idea of writing their full
names on It.
No, Ermyntrude, the Letters Ciub Is
not a correspondence society.
Wild Profs. I Have
Known
n.
It was two o'clock or thereabouts
on a Monday afternoon. Ono copious
room lu the Arts building wns doing
a rushing business. Students were
rushing out ot ono door, but for every
one that departed thore was another
who came In hy the second entrance.
At last this mud ebb and flow abated
until only one or two stragglers wero
still hurrying to the lecture.
Inside the room, things were in
chaos. Students were howling, talking, noisily opening books antl more
noisily closing them, reading the Feature Page of the "Ubyssey" and running up and down the aisles,
The last hell rings. ... A dreadful
hush falls upon the room as, through
tho open door strides a little man with
a very military air. His smooth brow
is tilted far back, as If he were studying the heavens, and In his arms tee
carries a pile of massive tomes. So
swiftly does ho move that his gown
trails out behind him, conveying the
Impression that he Is flying. Plying
or not, he mounts the rostrum and
makes bustling preparations for the
lecture.
First, ho deposits on his desk the
pile of hooks he has heen carrying—
a pile almost as big as he ia. Then
he turns to the hoard, nnd, pulling
a piece of chalk from the depths of
his volumnlotiB robe, makes n white
mark on the shiny black surface.
Whether this "writing on tho wall"
Is Hebrew or not, nobody knows; It
matters not. It ia always unintelligible to the student mind.
While the Professor is thus occupied the students aro actually buflyf
Books are even opened in earnest,
and pens and pencils nro much In
evidence. Each freshman and freshette grasps his (or her) writing Implement In much the same way ns wur-
rlors of old grasped their battle axes
when bent upon some forlorn hope.
Now the Instructor turns to the
class and begins his lecture. "Last
ilny I was talking about the R • • • n.
To-dnv I shall take up P - - • • , and
explain the whys and wherefores of
the movement."
He then proceeds with his "whys"
and "wherefores" nt a headlong rate.
The class, being now used to the procedure of the University, tries and
tries in vain to transcribe to their
notebooks every word thin "speed-
king" utters. The result is thnt they
are all in a hopeless muddle before
many minutes have flown by.
This fact, however, has no effect
Upon the Professor. He oroceeds at
the prune rattling pace, never pausing
for breath or to think of what he shall
say  next,
There Is something Indefinable
about this man that marks him out as
a genius. Probably It Is his ability
to do two things at once—-or even
half a dozen. All the time that he Is
talking he Is constantly arranging and
re-nrranglng his hooks. Sometimes he
opens a volume nnd casts his oye upon
the page as if very Interested In Its
contents. Then he closes It with a
snap and moves It to the farthest end
of the desk—to remove it from temptation.
Sometimes this Professor reads
aloud to the class—or to himself,
quite oblivious of the fact that anyone else Is present. While reading
be Invariably rests his arm on the
desk in front of him, and, leaning
forward, rests his open palm—as If
overcome by the weight that Is Inside,
Again at times he glances through
the windows as If a pageant were
passing nnd not merely the rain and
wind. He would make on Ideal
weather man. At other times he
gazes heavenwards, and looks as If
be were really going there. An unusual thing for a Professor.
A knock sounds at the door. No
one hears It hut the student*, and
they do not count. A second knock,
and then the door glides open and a
head Is visible. The newcomer gaaen
wistfully at the Professor and creeps
to his seat unseen.
At last tho bell goes, but the words
flow on.   "Next day I shall take up
tho W of tho R - - - •"    Many
weary arms lay aside pens, and many
victims drag tired bodies to tho common rooms.
"This Professor Is a walking Encyclopedia" remarks a sufferer All
tho freshette has to say is, "Isn't his
moustache adorable." (D. I. D.)
Vile Pun, No. 5649: "Who said the
L. S .D. President was all Wright?
He Max me tired."
BEWARE!
The hour has come. The dread word
has been whispered among the ranks
of the latest arrivals, Majestic settlors, with malignant eyes, survey the
prospects of rich spoils and rub their
hands In glee; grinning sophomores,
in all the glory of their exalted position, count the minutes until tho time
comes for the slaughter of the Innocents. Upper classmen nod their heads
wisely as they plan a gruesome reception for the children. Weird rumors of
horrors that are lo be circulate among
the trembling frosh. Even the most
aggressive members of Arts '30, who
for the pant week have swarmed over
the campus have confessed their terror, Their days are spent In agony;
their nights in deadly fear. Their
dreams are dreams of ghastly deeds;
rattling chains, ghostly forniB stalking before their terrified eyes; frightful shrieks rending the night air ns
unmentionable crimes are committed.
The emaciated forms nnd hunted eyes
of our little brothers and sisters bear
testimony to the mortal fear which
possesses their souls. Trembling, they
seek the uttermost corners of the locker rooms, hoping In that way to en-
capo the malicious glances of the unmerciful upper classmen. But It la all
of no avail. Kverywhere they go the
terrified youngsters are pursued by
the evil genius of their dreams. Maths.
I lecture.) are interrupted by the violent shrieks of a half-fainting freshette, who, wilh shaking forefinger,
points lo some apparition which has
HUildeiily appeared In the doorway.
Nowhere Is the freshman free from
bis thoughts. In the bus, In the cafeteria, bis countenance wears a faraway look; he lives In n world of his
own, a world peopled with the ghosts
of past horrors and tho spirits of horrors yet to come,
From honoured graduates of their
university the freshman has heard
tales of unutterable fenrfulness, tales
of Initiations In which only the hardest survived. His mind ia filled with
thoughts of dark passageways down
which struggling freshmen of former
years were sent to their fate; gruesome preparations Into which freshmen were plunged and from which
no one ever recovered. Oh, freshmen
ami freshettes, little you know ot the
doom which Is wrought for you! You
know not of tbe terrors which await
you, terrors far greater than any of
which you may have heard. You must
lie fully prepared for horrors of which
you may never live to tell the tale,
lie warned, therefore, and tread warily
for you know not what will come.

Tennis and Track
Men to Travel East
Two Intercollegiate teams will travel
east this fall to compete against the
prairie colleges. An Intercollegiate
track team will make tracks for Saskatoon, and are due to pound cinders
on October 17, In 1021 the tracksters
made a very favorable showing, tying
with Saskatchewan for unolllclal second place In the ni"oi. As yet a full
team has nut been sent, nor will auch
action be taken for a low years yet,
Teams are sent to these meets In order lo keep up the relations with the
eastern colleges, And It. Is very probable lhut In a few years stronger relations   will  be  established.
The Varsity tennis mpiad Is down
to meet Alberta and Saskatchewan at
Kdmonton this mouth, a prospective
clean sweep for the H C. net men.
It Is very doubtful whether tho prairie
men have any players of the class of
Seed, Shields, Meyers, Stevenson,
linker and Shakespeare. All these
men have met some of the best men
In the province and on the const, and
made favorable showing.
Shields reached the final round of
the H. C. clay court title this year,
losing out In a severe five-set battle
to Howard Langlle. The general Impression by IochI critics seems to be
to the effect that Shields should have
won the title.
Seed is interior Junior singles title
holder and one of the leading players
In the Laurel Tennis Club.
Ian Stevenson Is the Varsity singles
champion of 1925 and a very steady
and promising player.
After being absent from tournament
tennis for over a year, Lorlmer Maker,
a former consistent winner of the
tournament singles title nnd one of
the most brilliant junior players in
the Northwest a few years ago, will
make a big bid for the highest honors In tennis.
Meyers is the singles champion of
the city of New Westminster and one
of the best bets the tennis squad has
for Intercollegiate battles. He Is a
heavy hitter and a formidable player
In the buck courts and at the net.

bull turnout last week. The letter
men buck are Turpin and Nesbltt. It
is expected that both Butler and Hartley will be out before long and tbe
