Soccer Starts
V   Next Saturday
The Varsity first soccer team will
do its stuff on Saturday, October 4th,
against Vancouver City, which is considered one of the strongest First
Division teams this year, being practically an all-star aggregation of
last season's elevens. The Collegians
are three weeks late, as the soccer
season started a fortnight ago. Much
depends on the result of the first
game, so that a big delegation of
rooters should be on hand to give the
blue and gold a send-off in their first
game of the year.'
Unfortunately, Harry Mosher, Varsity's star goalie, who was picked on
the all-Canada team that toured Australia last summer, had his leg
broken while there, and is having it
re-set in the General Hospital at
present. The loss of Mosher is a big
blow to the soccer club, for they have
been able to find no one as good as
Heggie yet. Mosher may be able to
play after Christmas, however. Except for this position, the students
are going to have a strong eleven this
year. Rex Cameron is back on the
forward line, and Jock Lundie may
also turn out, while Bobby Jackson,
whose leg was out of commission last
season, is going to try and stage a
Plans for Initiation
Are In Preparation
Plans for initiation are in the hands
of a special committee appointed by
the Students' Council at their last
meeting. The committee is composed
of representatives from each of the
Faculties, with the University Marshal acting as convenor. The personnel is as followsi
Convenor, Thos. Taylor; Arts, Chas.
Motley, H. B. Smith; Science, C. Arnott, H. McLean; Agriculture, L.
Murphy; Women, Grace Smith, Dorothy Brown.
No details of the Freshmen's forthcoming ordeal are being given out as
yet; but the Omnipotent Nine are
working zealously, and wish it to be
distinctly understood, for the benefit
of any too optimistic green ones, that
there will be an initiation, and that
within a very short time. The date
has not yet been definitely fixed, but
next Thursday is looked upon as the
most propitious evening upon which
to hold the awful ceremony.
Freshmen Attention!
All Freshies may obtain information
about athletics from Tommy Wilkinson, Ag. '26, President of Men's Athletics; Pug Greggor, Sc. '25, Captain
of Rugby Club; or Ed. Bassett, Sc.
'26; Chubb Arnott, Sc. '25, Manager of
Soccer team.

^President Klinck Addresses Students and
/ Dal Grauer Sends Message
It gives me a very real pleasure to
welcome back fellow-members of the
Alma Mater Society to the tenth session of the University of British
Columbia, and I am quite sure all
older members will join with me in
extending the sincerest of greetings
to the incoming class of Arts '28.
To you who are entering this University for the first time I can truly
say that our Alma Mater Society is
an organization of which all of us are
very proud—and an organization that
we feel sure none will be more proud
of than yourselves. A glance over
the past few years will show that
this pride of ours is something more
than mere sentiment; it has a solid
basis in accomplished fact. One has
only to mention our campaign to get
the building programme at Point Grey
started—our victories in athletics—
our campaign for playing fields—and,
above all, our scholarship men, who
are carrying our honours to other
universities on this continent and in
Europe. Who would not be proud of
an Alma Mater with such a record?
Therefore we welcome you, Arts
'28, into the Alma Mater Society, in
the belief that you will derive great
benefit from it. At the same time we
consider that it is your honour and
your privilege to enjoy this heritage
—to do more than that, to become a
potent factor in perpetuating it, in
adding to  its  store  of achievements.
You will find abundant opportunity
awaiting you. There are many perplexing problems facing the student
body this year, in the solution of
which we need your fullest support.
It will be our last year at Fairview.
(Continued on Page 3)
Regulations to be
Enforced by Council
The following have been prohibited:
1. Loud talking or any noise in the
2. Talking in the library.
3. Writing on the walls.
4. Loitering in the halls.
Gambling in any form will be dealt
with by the Students' Council summarily.
In the past there has been a great
deal of snatching of the "Ubyssey"
from those distributing it. This will
not be permitted this year.
All Freshmen are expected to turn
out to every general meeting of the
student body.
All students eligible are expected to
take part in some form of sport, while
everyone is expected to turn out to
the games and root for Varsity.
Dr. L. S. Klinck, President of the
University, in his address on Tuesday
morning, extended a very hearty welcome to the first-year students on
behalf of the Faculty and governing
bodies of the U.B.C. He referred to
the increased registration figures, and
to the exceptional size of the Freshman class, which, he said, was already
a class of some distinction, but time
would determine whether it was to be
the best.
"Why have you come in such large
numbers?" asked Dr. Klinck. "Is it
because it is popular; because some
of your high school associates are
here; because your parents wanted
you to come; because you consider it
will raise your social status and enable you to gain a livelihood without
much manual or mental effort? Or
is it a desire to gather facts, to gain
knowledge, to get wisdom and understanding; to enrich the mind;
strengthen the intellect, develop
moral fibre, and learn the fine art of
living and working happily together?
I cannot answer these questions; but
doubtless you have put these and
other like questions to' yourself, and
have given your own answer. Upon
your answer much depends."
The President made reference to
the inevitable confusion and personal
inconvenience the class of '28 would
experience at first. Many things were
new and strange — the surroundings,
associates, subjects, time-tables, lecture methods, professors. The University was not a high school, he said;
it gave more opportunity for initiative, personal and corporate,. and for
a wider choice of subjects, and it was

Rugby Club holds
its First Meeting
The first meeting of the University
Rugby Club was held Wednesday noon
in the Physics lecture room. There
was a large turn-out and the interest
displayed augured a very successful
year for Varsity's premier sport. Mr.
Purdy, president of the club, was in
the chair. The minutes having been
read and adopted, the question of
fielding two rugby teams for the Miller
Cup series was discussed. It was decided to play the two teams, and
choose a McKechnie Cup team from
them later in the season. Representatives were then elected to the V. R. U.
and the B. C. R. U. Morgan, Purdy
and Greggor being chosen for the
former, and Purdy and Domoney for
the latter. After a short discussion
on equipment for the different teams,
the meeting adjourned.
Teams Extend
Arms to Frosh
Exit the Grad, enter the Freshie!
Freshmen may take consolation in
the fact that, no matter how they may
be pushed about in the corridors, they
will be welcomed with open arms by
managers and trainers of the various
football squads. "The child is father
of the man," as Wordsworth would
say. This is true with regard to
Freshmen and athletics, since the future athletic stars — those who will
carry the blue and gold to the fore
out at Point Grey—will be recruited
from their ranks, not from those of
upper years.
All husky and fleet-footed Freshies
who are anxious to display their
wares on the field of sport must not
be bacKward in coming forward.
There are gaps to be filled in the
Rugby squads, the soccer elevens are
not overcrowded with talent, and the
track club is absolutely dependent on
the Freshies to fill its ranks. Basketball stars are not so numerous that
half-a-dozen or so can graduate without their loss being felt.
In a large Freshman class, with students having different time-tables, it is
very hard to become known for some
time. There is no better way of obtaining popularity in the Freshman
class, as well as making friends in
other years, than by turning out for
the different athletic teams. Every
Freshman should want to be a leader
in his class. Get busy right away.
The club managers do not want to
find a Freshman star at Christmas
(for he might graduate then); they
want him now. All right, Freshmen,
boost your University, boost your
class, boost yourself by turning out
for the different teams.
Over Thirty Members
1/    Needed by Players
There are thirty-five vacancies in ■
The Players' Club membership for this
session. Never before have so many
losses been sustained by graduation.
Consequently those who can act or
feel inclined to test their ability
should apply for admission to the tryouts. These will be held in a week's
time, when the aspiring actors will be
surveyed by the Advisory Board, consisting of Professors Wood, Clark and
Soward. Candidates are given a short
scene from a well-known play, and
their gifts of interpretation judged
therefrom, after a few days have been
spent in preparation. Some interesting one-act plays are under considsra-
tion for performance late in November, and a very attractive Spring Play
is available should adequate new
material be forthcoming. Those desiring to try-out should hand their
names in to Professor Wood, Room 5,
Commercial Bldg. or to any of the following—Misses Eloise Angell and Al-
freda Berkeley, and Messrs. K. Caple,
Jim Bennett or T. M. C. Taylor. THE   UBYSSEY

We wish to add our voice to the
general chorus of welcome to the incoming Class of '28. This special four-
page edition of the ''Ubyssey" is published mainly for their benefit, and although it bears all the ear-marks of
hurried work, it is our hope that it
will be of some interest and value to
Comprising as it does well over one-
third of the student body, the freshman class is the most powerful single
factor in the student body, and, as
such, will be watched anxiously by the
remainder of the University.
To this class, realizing its importance, appreciating its possibilities, and
hoping that its University career may
be one of ambition fulfilled, and well-
deserved attainment, we extend our
heartiest greeting to Arts and Agriculture '28.
It might be well, before the present
turmoil has subsided into routine, to
call the attention of new students, and
remind the old, of the unquestionable
advantages to be derived from patronizing the Students' Cafeteria.
The support of . home industries,
though by no means an infallibly justifiable doctrine, is not likely to be an
over-emphasized principle in this case.
It is not only that the student may
procure clean, wholesome, hot meals
for, let it be whispered only, an indisputably lower rate can be obtained
than at any other sanitarium for the inner individual; the more pointed,
more sweepingly unassailable argument is this, that the student who
frequents the Cafeteria patronizes his
" own business venture. That in the
final analysis is the outcome of the
action. The Cafeteria is organized and
financed by the Alma Mater Society,
of which every undergraduate is a
member, and all accruing profits revert to the Alma Mater funds. Consequently, under the present condition of increasing returns with increasing business, the larger the patronage the greater the annual turnover to student funds and in the way
of extra fees, etc., the smaller the exactions from the pocketbooks of individual students. And this fact is not
a product of financial rhetoric.
Those independent ones who invariably bring lunches of their own, are
yet supplied with an opportunity for
giving their custom through the medium of afternoon teas, a phase of the
Cafeteria business which, it is announced, will be catered to even more
neatly, attentively, and thoroughly this
Class Executives may, perhaps, initiate the most potent support by arranging for a greater number of class
events to take place within University
precincts. Renovations, improvements
and extensions are about to be made
with a view to this trade, and everything possible on the part of the Cafeteria will undoubtedly be done to
facilitate catering.
The more casual patronage, the purchasing of cigarettes and bars, should
also not be overlooked. The habit of
buying these indispensable necessities
at the "Caf" is of course an involuntarily fixed one amongst students of
the upper years, and it is only because
of the presence of nearly six hundred
undergraduates without information on
this subject that reminders need be
given. But in the way of custom
through lunches, teas and dance suppers, much more can be done by all,
individually, and, what is more promising of results, collectively. In all
truth, with rare, unblushing egoism, let
us patronize ourselves!
So that students may know the exact rate of service at the Cafeteria,
a tariff is given below:
Lunch with regular dessert  25c
Lunch with special dessert  35c
Dinner, including soup and special
dessert   40c
Afternoon  tea   20c
(Tea, coffee, or cocoa, with toast,
buns or bannocks.)
The "Ubyssey" will, after this week,
be published and distributed each
Thursday of the term until two weeks
before exams.
Literary  Corner
Black against steel the elm boughs cut
the sky,
And the  clouds  fly  over.    Down  the
frostier ways
Of January's ordering, strike the rays
Of stranger otars and keen enchanted
Icy and far, the heavens where spaces
Hold silence;  and we are silent, you
and I,
Who sang the warmth of life through
summer noons.
Oh! do not try to reach me with your
And do not touch me—human love
would mar
The   piercing  peace  with  which  this
night is fraught—
Your words, unshaken, leave its icy
Look—and   was   that   the   answer   I
have sought
That blue sword flash from7 out the
farthest star. J

the session held Wednesday, when the
seniors, by a large majority, went on
record as favoring the wearing of the

riis sincere, hope that the Freshman
class would understand and unreservedly enter into the work and
spirit of the University.
Dr. Klinck next pointed out that
there were other important considerations not set forth in the calendar
under General Information, nor included in courses offered in the curriculum; such considerations as which
activity to engage in, which organization to join, which faculty to enter,
which courses to take, and so forth.
In all these matters, he said, it was
the duty and the pleasure of the professors and instructors to give every
assistance. They were there to give
their best to the students, and in return they expected no less  of them.
"While you are making a real contribution in time, effort, and funds in
entering upon this course, you are not
by any means defraying all the
expenses," continued Dr. Klinck. "For
you, the State is doing much. With
reason, it expects muah in return;
much as evidenced in the skilled
hand, the trained intellect, much in
moral stamina and true worth. Here,
as in the world at large, each man is
his own architect. The University, in
its staff, its library and its equipment,
brings together the material from a
thousand sources; but upon you, individually, rests the responsibility for
sorting that material and putting it to
wise use.
Again I welcome you to the University; welcome you into this fellowship of men and women, of professors and students, of teachers and
taught. I congratulate you upon the
opportunity which is yours to become
partners with us in creating new
standards of excellence, and in maintaining those which have proved to be
worthy of the University of British
\ ;     Dal Grauer's Message
*"       (Continued from Page 1)
We shall have to make all those
preparations which will allow us to
move to Point Grey without a single
break in our activities. This alone
will be a big task. The upper classes
have shown in the last three years
that they are worthy of facing such
a task—that they have the qualities
of co-operation, enthusiasm, and sustained endeavour. I can safely expect
this same spirit to be shown by them
during the coming year. But what of
the Freshmen? Will Arts '28 take
its place beside these other years in
the giving of its best to the solving
of our problems? Will it show that
it also has these qualities? We can
only judge by what has happened in
the past, and the past record of all
Freshmen years leads us to expect
much of Arts '28. If the upper classes
display that same spirit which they
have shown in the past three years,
and if Arts '28 co-operates with these
classes to the very best of its ability,
I am sure that the result will be the
best year of our history. This statement, I admit, is as yet the expression of a hope. Can we not make it
a reality?
It is reported in the Evening Sun
that a road has been built in Italy "for
motorists only." This, of course, is to
enable motorists to forge ahead unhindered by slower horse-drawn vehicles, or mere pedestrians. It is a very
good idea.
The Students' Council has a plan
somewhat similar. The phone in their
office is to be for the use of Councillors only. The benefit is obvious.
The Students' Council has a hard
year's work ahead of it, and this rule
(which will be strictly enforced) will
save them from the interruptioins of
executive members of subsidiary societies and other students who wish to
use the phone gratis.
But the Students' Council is naturally kind-hearted, so a phone will be
placed in the Lit. and Scientific Department for executive members. For
the remaining students, there are still
the—pay phones.
We believe
that many readers purchase
their Stationery, Dance Programs,
Fountain  Pens,  etc.,  from  us.

Sharpen Your Pencils and
Enter the Reporters Contest
Reporters for The Ubyssey will be
chosen again this year by means of
"a nose for news" competition, to be
held early next week. All would-be
journalists are asked to meet in Room
Z at noon, Monday, when assignments
for the competition will be given by
the editor-in-chief and the chief reporter.
The Ubyssey is the only authorized
paper of the University of B. C. It is
published every Thursday by the Publications Board, and carries all the
University news along with humor
and editorials pertaining to the University life.
This year there is need of several
live reporters who are willing to give
a little of their time for the journalistic training they receive. There is
no money to be made by the reporting
staff of the paper, but the positions
offer an opportunity of being in touch
with all the university activities.
Freshmen have no need to fear that
they will be discriminated against, as
it is the policy to train reporters who
will be editors as these positions are
left vacant each year. Only those
who try out in the competition will
be given the appointments and the
staff will be chosen without fear or
favor. No appointments will be made
until after each report has been carefully  read.
There is need for reporters who are
interested in all branches of the University activities including sports, and
willing workers will have an ample
opportunity of advancing in whatever
line they are most efficient. Co-eds
are needed to take care of the women's activities, so that the women
of the university who are interested
will be welcomed.
Full instructions will be given at
the meeting Monday noon in Room
' With the new term several additions
to the Staff have been made, some of
whom are graduates of our own University.
One of these is Dr. Charles A. H.
Wright, who is taking the place of Dr.
Archibald as Lecturer in Chemistry.
He took his B.A., B.Sc. and M.Sc. from
British Columbia, and his Ph.D. from
McGill University.
Besides Dr. Wright there have been
appointed to the Chemistry Department four assistants, all graduates of
our own University. These are Mr. J.
S. Huggett, B.A.Sc; Mr. Swanzy Reck,
B.A.Sc; Mr. Gill, B.A.; and Mr. R. N.
Crozier, B.A.
Mr. Huntley M. Sinclair, who took
his degree of B.A. and M.A. from Edinburgh, has been appointed to the Economics Department to take the place
of Professor Beckett, who has been
granted leave of absence.
To the English Department has been
appointed Miss Sallee Murphy, another B. C. graduate, who has taken
her degree of M.A. from Toronto University. Miss Murphy was well-known
here as a member of the Class of '23.
An addition has also been made to
the Mathematics Department in the
person of Dr. S. S. Dederick, who took
his A.B. from Kenyon University and
his A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard. He
has lectured at Princeton, and also at
the United States Naval Academy at
Mr. Chodat, who has been appointed
to the French Department, lectured
here a few years ago. He has for the
past few years taught at the King
Edward High School. He has been ap
pointed to take the place of the late
Professor Grojean.
Mr. G. J. Spencer, B.Sc, M.Sc, has
been appointed Assistant Professor in
Zoology. He is a graduate of Toronto
University, and has done extensive

The Tennis Club is planning to hold
the annual tennis tournament, starting Monday, September 29th. It is
hoped that the Laurel courts can be
used, as in other years. Judging from
the entries already received, interest
is keen this year, and a record tournament is expected. There will be the
usual five events: men's and women's
singles, and doubles, and mixed doubles. An entry fee of 50 cents for a
single event, or $1.00 for two or more,
is charged to cover expenses. Entries,
together with the necessary fees,
should be given in to members of the
executive or in the Main Hall at noon
on Friday.
The Executive of the Women's
Swimming Club wishes to announce
that classes in-life-saving will be held
this winter, in addition to the regular
programme of the Club. Instruction
will be given in the best methods of
rescue of the drowning, and resuscitation of the apparently drowned, as
taught by the Royal Life-saving Society. The diplomas and medals of the
Society will be awarded for proficiency.
It is hoped that all who join the
Club will avail themselves of the opportunity of such classes. About a
hundred tickets will be issued. For
further information watch the Sign
board upstairs.
