wbsn Dr. O. O. Bsdgswiok and Prof.
H. F. Angus argued tbo resolution,
"Tho League of Nations la too

Speaking for tho affirmative, Dr.
Sedgewlok claimed tbat there la
nothing wrong with tbo Ideals of
tbo league, but tbat they aro far
too high for any practical use today. "Oreat massss of men took
it to heart that tho league would
bo a safeguard ot world paaoo, but
this belief turned out to bo a sheer
bubble," bo stated.
Dr. Sedgewlok reviewed briefly
tha three major fallurea of tho
league, tho Ohaao Inoldent, tha
Manahukuo dlapute, and tha regent aaaa of Abyaalnla. Ho point*
ad  out that  In  each  aaaa  tha

Opposing   Dr.   Sedgewick,   Prof.
Angus daolared tbat tbo league bad
dona groat harm by ssttlng up to
low an ideal for mankind. "It there
bad been aet up a blgbar, bettor,
aad nobler Ideal to start off with,
men would havo reaotod very differently," ba stated.

Friday night, while Alfred Carlson and Tom Marshall
engage in a McOoun Cup debate at Saskatchewan, U.B.C.'e

will oppose the two debaters here from Alberta.
The men who will speak for the Edmonton University
are H. J. Bishop and W. B. Ayre, both debaters of high
calibre. Bishop is a third-year Arts and Law Student, who
has taken an aotve part ln dramatic productions In hie University. He has had considerable experience in Forum debating at Alberta, but this ls his flrst major debate.
Hts collasue, W. B. Ayre, has also bsen prominent In dramatic

The shades of the Renaissance
are once again quiet and undisturbed, the desecrating hand of tbe
reformist has been removed, and
the classic curves of Venus de Mllo,
life-sized mascot of the University
ot Manitoba Students Union, stauds
nude, in all her pristine innocence,
undraped by the vulgar cheesecloth
imposed upon her by intellectually
nude Manitoba co-eds. As the Manltoban puts lt, "lusty financiers decided to show their fangs and with
a mighty roar of 'are we men or
mice' tore off the scanty covering
of the statue.
"The pomp and vanity of this
lustful world" (see prayerbook)
might be the title of the latest paradox committed by the male sex at
Alberta. Through the ages of
times we have had women haters
who, ln self-assertion of the great
imoprtance ot their own sex proclaimed far and wide the general
worthlessness of the female speoles,
and then later quietly crawled
around the corner to crave the Indulgence ot that sex ln approaching
the happy  (?)  state of marriage.
The question as to how this was
accomplished has often tickled the
mind of this unworthy one. Alberta
men have now supplied an answer,
in part. The Woman Haters' Club
wanted to hold a ball. They could
not allow their pride to be reduced
to the earthly state of inviting a
'woman'. So they issue "invitations
to the 160 most beautiful women on
the campuB." The invited then invite, and presumably take, tbe In-
viters. Slither the men are colloaal

before you begin to fall.
Ail in all. all cases ot the above
are really one and, in this part ot
the country I, for one, have failed
to discover anyone who contemplated the falling racket from an
utilitarian angle. Further, I suggest that co-eds here disregard the
Insidious influence of these suggestions. Any woman who turns herself Intp a pocket handkerchief is
liable to be regarded as flat as the
Prairies from whioh this sage advice oomes. It is to be hoped that
the femn.es of the sister institution have not adopted this as a rule
thereby proceeded further desecration ot art.
Random Ramblings
Have you noticed the surprising
number of people who prefer to
spend their Sunday evenings at
home, listening to Messrs Cantor
and Benny. A clever co-ed ln Arts '88
did, and Invented the "Jack Benny

Sunday night family dinner, where
the hostess doesn't have to provide
anything more than a square meal.
Just about the time the conversation starts to lag and another evening of Monopoly seems Inevitable,
Parkyercaroass, and hia stooge,
Bddy, come to the rescue. From
then on the gravest sooial error*possible Is to whisper or scrape your
chair, and for this reason parents
and other uncultured adults should
be packed off to church or somewhere beforehand. And when Buck
Benny ls through Riding Again
there is always Mart Kenney baok
home in our own village to provide
dance music. After that It Is time
to go home, because the hostess
was probably out late the night be
fore. A quiet evening, but oh so
easy on the pocketbook.

The flrst ln a series of five lectures on "The Development of Vocal Music" by Allard de Ridder,
conductor of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, was presented before a large audience in the University Auditorium on Wednesday
afternoon. Mr. de Ridder was assisted by Miss BHsJe de Ridder at
the piano and a quartette composed
of members of the musical society.
Mr. de Ridder began his leoture
with the statement that "voice ls
the oldest way ot expressing music." During the latter half of the
10th century composers were mainly concerned with the Instrumental
side of music and for the next decade or so undertook its refinement.
"It was the Jewish people who
gave the flrst example of culture ln
music," Mr. de Ridder explained,
"and this music can be compared
to the development of the music
which the Oreeks used during their

Renovating Mother Goose
Professor Allan Abbott of Teachers College, Columbia University,
has been bringing Mother Goose
into "significant relation with con.
temporary problems."
We knew Dr.
, Abbott long ago
in the graduate
school and remember him as a
very able and sol.
emn young man
—solemn as only
professors of education can be. He
used to Illustrate
his class reports
with pedagogical
diagrams that nobody ever understood. Now and again, he was suspected of using bis solemnity to
see how many legs he could pull,
and he has been carrying on researches of that sort for the last
twenty-five years.
* *    »
This time he has pulled a fast
one (a familiar idiom, we haatsn to
say, which has no necessary reference to pulling a leg). In the new
Abbott rhymes of Mother Gooss,
Nancy Netticoat shsds her obsolete
petticoat and appears aa follows:
"Little Nancy Neppins
In her silk step-ins
And hsr half-hose;
The longer she stands
The colder she grows."
Most modern children have experienced the bitter truth of this
observation. And all' of them will
sympathise with the up-to-date little pig of another revised version
who goes home crying about his
low I.Q.
There can be no doubt that silk
step-ins and low I.Q.'a are contemporary problems. What is more,
there may be a significant relation
between the two: and the more seriously we view tne matter, the better Dr. Abbott will be pleased.
* •    *
We, too, can be as solemn as any
other pedagogue, and we are equally eager to bring our children
into touch with the age. For a
long time we have been dissatisfied
"Hickory dicory dock,
The mouse ran up the clock."
Our grandfathers, it is true, had
clocks up which mice could run,
but these clumsy timepieces are out
of date and have no modern significance.
We therefore offer to scientific
mothers, as a substitute, the following study of a pressing contemporary problem:
"Clickity clackity knock,
The burglar busts the lock,
The cops who come
Batter the bum;
Clickity clackity knock."
These lines, we feel, can sustain
a comment or two. The first couplet
is onomatopoetic: in lino one you
hear the sound of a burglar working with a lock-mechanism, and the
alliteration of the second line sug-
?;ests how suddenly his entry is elected. Poetic justice arrives on
time, as it always ahould do, in the
third and fourth lines. And finally
you hear the policeman's billy beating a tattoo on the burglars' skull.
If purists point with alarm to
the vulgarity of the diction, we beg
to state that this too is a contemporary problem.
* *    *
For more advanced classes in
poetry we have been inspired to
renovate a large number of other
nursery rhymes. Of these, we select
two which have an immediate bear-
ing on the problem of Dr. Abbott
The flrst is a version of Miss
Muff et, which we think will be stimulating to boys of the Freddie
Bartholomew stage
"Poor Mister Abbott
Had a bad habit
Of bringing verse up-to-date.
There came a small urchin
(For fun he was sear chin')
And pelted him over the pate."
It must be admitted that this
poem contains a certain incitement
to violence whioh, ln general, we

that, in this particular case, Freddie Bartholomew could plead justification for the blow.
Certainly no one can take exception to our philosophic lyric about
middle-aged educators who would
revamp  Mother  Goose;
"Dear old guys,
Don't they have fun!
They're   swinging   their   axes    at
nursery rhyme
Because  it isn't  in tune with   the
You never saw such devils for crime
as the dear old guys."
We should like Professor Abbott
to   know  that his  powers   of  leg-
pulling have suffered no decay.

Mounty Head At
Engineers' Meet
Guest speaker at the laat U. El. S.
meeting, held Tuesday noon ln Ap.
Sc. 100, was the Commissioner ot
the R. C. M. P., Major General Sir
James MacBrlen. He spoke on the
"Work of the Force" to an enthusiastic audienoe of over 200 Engineers and their friends. The topic
was of great interest, and Sir
James was able, ln the short time
at his disposal, to sketch with remarkable clarity the varied and engrossing tasks of the famous Redcoats.
He began with an historical account ot the service, returning later
to outline the duties undertaken by
lt at the present day. There are six
of these: the National Police Force,
for the enforcement of Federal
statutes; the Preventive Force,
against smuggling; the Provincial
Police Force In six of the nine provinces, constituting two-thirds of the
total work of the whole R. C. M. P.;
the Protective Force tor Government buildings and others Important to the Dominion; the Far North
Patrols; and the General Polioe
Reserve, which extends aid to all
Canadian Police units when they
need it.
Of thsss, ths Orlmlnsl Invsstl-
gatlon Oopartmsnt of tha National Roll oo Foree lo ths most In*
tereatlng. It Inoludoa the atudy
and uae of aolentlflo. methoda for
orlmo prevention and detection,
and aevoral Unlveralty graduatee
are at preaent studying law as a
start In thla work, whose.parallel
la found In the Q-Men of the
United etatea.
The Commissioner said that the
condition of the Force was never
better than at present, but refused
to take any credit for it. He stated
that out ot 5000 applicants annually, only 260 of the best are accepted. These men are trained to study
their profession ln order to become
really efficient police officers, and
to carry on the honorable traditions
of their service. Indeed, care has
to be taken to avoid overkeenness,
as trouble may otherwise result.
He spoke ln glowing terms of the
men who serve under him, and to
whom, he says, all the honors of
the R. C. M. P. are due.

courses and in timetables which
they wished to make for the Spring
Term. One professor reported that
everything in his department was
going smoothly nnd that no revision
would be necessary—but he forgot
to mention his name or the courses
that he was giving.
The principal date looming In the
near future ls the Junior Prom. As
It is the flrst function ot the Spring
term and more than likely to be
well attended the executive have
been allowed to reserve the Spanish Orill and all ten of the Western
Gentlemen for January 88.

Universities came next, and ho
drew a roar from the redcoats when
he said that the "Arts faculty waa
the soul of a university." A professor himself, Or. Leacock advocated that dons should become unworldly and retain that "moony-
mindneas" of other ages.
In a lecture that dealt with nearly every phase cf everything Shakespeare was sure to come in for some
ribbing, and he did. Using the
method of our own Or. Sedgewick

Leacock first showed that the poet

Flans for the Junior Prom to be
held at the Spanish Orill on January 88 with tiokets at 82.80 were

that each  voter should  write  the

Editor Ubyssey:
Dear Madam:
About five minutes before the
English 2 lecture started we wandered into Arts 100. The usual
atmosphere of Sophomore boredom
prevailed except that a number of
excited young male sophs bad invaded the room and were making it
somewhat unattractive—with din
and snowballs.
That, however, can be passed off
as good clean fun, but surely when
the professor enters the room and
starts to lecture, the students might
make a few concessions, such as
not talking in more than groups of
a dozen, or not leaving the lecture
room at intervals of less than five
The professor proceeded firmly on
his way without raising his voice,
trying to pretend no doubt that his
speech was not accompanied hy a
continuous chattering hum. Once he
stopped speaking and expostulated
in the mildest manner possible,
assuring us that he was not angry,
but could we juat exercise control
of our tongues for a few more minutes.
Evidently we could not; since
everybody started telling everyone
else about his life history and two
girls near me explained frantically
to each other the nature and cause
ot divorce, and gabbled superfluous
remarks about tbe magnlfloenoe of
somebody's square - cut emerald
And in the remote distance a
voice, a very agreeable voice, continued his spseoh. Whose could it
be? Ah—yes, of course, tha professor's—silly of us. The voice waa
telling us ot the majeatio prose of
John Dryden. Apparently we were
not interested in prose since we
continued to delight ottr neighbor's
ears with favoring reminiscences
and auch remarks as, "Isn't Eva's
hair cute?" "Where did you go?
The Mandarin Gardens?" and "I
was just thrilled because I didn't
think he'd phone again after Tuesday."
Why on earth does anyone have
to tell anything important to a
gathering of sophomores who are
not interested? They would much
rather roar with laughter when Dr.
Sedgwick tells them how stupid
they are or shout in ecstatic: frency
when a professor drops a book on
the floor.
