Women's Carnival A
Great Success
The McKechnie Cup was definitely
assured a place in the Entrance Hall
cabinet when the College last Saturday defeated the Vancouver "Rep.."
team 10 points to 3.
Conditions, for once, were ideal and
the game correspondingly interesting.
Both teams took the field in fine trim
which enabled them to maintain the
keenest competition throughout a
gruelling test of condition.
Five minutes from the start found
Varsity in Vancouver's twenty-five.
After a short struggle the bah went
down our three-quarter line to "Gee"
Ternan who was brought down with
a yard to go. Reg. Hodson touched
down for the first score of the game.
The rather difficult kick was unsuccessful.
With three points against them
Vancouver showed their mettle and
forced the blue and gold team to a
position dangerously close to our line.
A few minutes later Domoney cleared
and play was near the centre-line
when Ken Macken, Vancouver's captain, and one of our opponents' most
valuable players, dislocated his knee
and was unable to take any further
part in the game. For the ten minutes following a stiff struggle was
carried on with no large gains to
either side. Then "Gee" Ternan finding an opening thirty yeards out from
the "Rep" goal posts sent the ball
over the cross-bar in a perfectly
judged drop-kick.
Again Vancouver came back from
the kick-off and pressed hard. Soon
afterwards Varsity had the misfortune to lose "Gee" Ternan who had to
leave the field with a cracked rib. At
half-time Varsity were back in their
opponents'  twenty-five.
Blue and Gold took the offensive
when play was resumed. Some" fifteen
minutes later Vancouver succeeded in
forcing the play into the Varsity
twenty-five and were awarded a free-
kick. Hal Gwyther made use of this
opportunity by putting the "Rep."
team on the score board for three
points with a neat drop-kick. On one
other occasion Vancouver broke the
Collegians' decided mastery. A free
kick was awarded our opponents and
failed. Soon after "Lou" Hunter and
"Cam" Stewart figured in a rush down
the touch line. A furious struggle
within a few yards of the Varsity line
kept the spectators in wild excite^'
ment for some minutes. A drop-kick
by Vancouver from a very advantageous position was smothered by a rush
and play went back to the other end
of the field. Several minutes of pressure in this area resulted in Buchanan
scoring a try from a pass by Carlisle.

Heap Big Indians, War Whoops,
Fox-trot,  Camel-walk,  slide  and  dip,
High Jinks, High Jinks,
Rip!    Rip I    Rip!
It was the best High Jinks since
High Jinks became a firmly fixed institution in our university life. Everybody says so, and everybody, for
once, is right. The costumes were
extremely original, the music excellent, and the refreshments, provided
by the women of Arts '24, of a very
satisfying nature.
What a night! Bedraggled tramps
sat about the floor playing with their
grimy cards, while in among them
danced dainty Egyptian princesses,
courtiers, jesters and pierrots. The
sweetest of old-fashioned ladies
walked arm in arm with Mexican
brigands and Chinese coolies. It was
the highest achievement of democracy
this University has ever witnessed.
The evening was opened with a
grand march in which everyone displayed their costumes to the best advantage. The dancing was interrupted several times to yield place to the
skits which were put on. The first
of these was a realistic Bowery song
and dance; the second, a spirited
dramatic version of Lord Ullin's
daughter which provoked surreptitious tears. In the third act, Lady
Godiva rode through the streets on
her priceless "palfrey," the source of
much sympathy. But the fourth was
the crowning achievement of the
evening—"Barnacles," a parody on
the Christmas tragedy "He." The
little Captain vowed that, "by Jiminy
Christmas," he'd have his barnacles,
and that if he "went home with a
measely little lard-pail of barnacles,
all the children in the streets" would
laugh at him. But Arabella, his
big wife, by a poetic reversal of justice, tells him to go and "play with
your tin-whistle that I bought specially for your amusement." When
the audience had been reduced to a
helpless condition by laughter, the
curtain fell.
Then came supper, and the prizes.
Miss Mclnnes praised the costumes
and the ingenuity that had created
them, and after the usual difficulty
found in bestowing the prizes, she
awarded them to Miss Cranston, '25,
and Miss Murphy, '23, as the two
finest masqueraders; and to Miss H.
Creelman, '24, and Miss M. Roe, '25,
as the two most comical.
High Jinks was not only very much
enjoyed by the women of the University, but—it seems to have been looked
upon, favourably by other students

Programme of
Varsity Week
Lots of Unusual Events
Fb.  13th to  20th
Most of us remember the Klahowya
week of last year and what a big
success it was in arousing Varsity
latent pep and in demonstrating to
the faculty and the city at large that
there is a real live spirit in these halls
of learning. This year a similar week
is being arranged by Student Leaders
—and judging from the pep shown in
the various arrangements, it augurs
well to be a far greater success than
last year's.
A snappy programme for the pep
week has been drawn up and embraces
a decidedly varied field. On Monday
noon in the auditorium, a mass meeting of students will be held when an
explanation of the idea and a detailed
announcement of the programme for
the week will be given. Stunts, yells
and peppy speeches are all being
billed and Varsity week will receive
a  splendid send-off.
On Tuesday night there will be a
Faculty vs. Students' Debate. The
subject is a snappy one. The Faculty
representatives are taking the affiir-
mative of "Resolved that lectures are
detrimental to a college course."
The Faculty vs. Students' soccer
game has been arranged for Wednesday—and the novelty of the game
lies in the fact that the student team
will have a member of each year on
Thursday Night, of course, is the
big night—when Varsity goes on
downtown rampage to the Orpheum
Theatre. This year's programme for
Theatre night is snappier than ever

Sporting Features Enjoyed
on Friday Night
First Frosh—Skyrocket for the
Arts' Smoker!
Second Frosh—By heck, I loaded
my corn cob three times and smoked
eight cigarettes, and I didn't even get
First Fresh (chesty). Oh, that's
nothing. Doc. Sedgwick gave me one
of his 40c (?) Havanas.
Prof. H. T. Logan, Honorary President of the Society made the opening
speech and led a sing song amid the
gathering smoke - barrage, then
"Johnny" declared the party open.
The Lodge with its usual kindness
lent some charming talent for several
dance and song numbers.
Varsity's best friend "Old Bill," was
much in the limelight and made a
speech, tracing some of his experiences in the halls of U. B. C. Mr. Tansley is looking forward to that millen-
ium when he will be doing duty in the
marble halls at Point Grey.
After some good songs, the spirit
of the ace of spades favored the party
with a visit, and wrote much on a
slate. Mr. G. Kydd, magician, pulled
sundry unmentionables from the hat
of an innocent-looking freshman.
Doc. Sedgewick's eyes grew large and
round, and in a terror-stricken voice,
he said, "For heaven's sake don't give
that man my hat."
Campbell and McLachlan now
furnished thrills in a three-round
boxing bout which was luckily declared a draw before too much damage had been done. The only casualties that we could observe were a
black eye and a busted pate. Following the bout the orchestra saw fit to
Hoi""-" ono nf :ts spasmodic outbursts
and the couples stepped onto the floor
in lovmg embrace. All camel walking
and touching was strictly taboo. One
chap was hea,rd deliriously cooing to
his partner about the thrills of hugging a post and dancing with a boy,
being on a par.
A fair" 'MsciDle of Terpischore
flung the Highland Fling and tripped
several airy measures. She is a true
artist and she danced and sang her
way into the hearts of her appreciative audience.
Arkley, Ellis; .Gill and Welch of
Arts '22, '23, '24 and '25 respectively,
walloped each other around into
knots and made mysterious passes
into vacancy, in the cleverest blindfold boxing matches on record. Arts
'22 represented by Jack Arkley won
the box of cigars.
Prof. Logan rounded out the programme with a poem of his own im-
provision, dwelling upon the foibles
and fussings of the Executive of the
A. M. U. S.

The Lady, the Lad and
"There's an awful lot of knowledge
That you never learn at college,
There are heaps of things you never
Team at school."
"That subtle something which stirs
mere man. It lifts him away from
his line until he is a slave to "A rag,
a bone and a hank of hair."
A glance, a word, perhaps a trace
of— But that's a state secret, it
causes that intangible presence which
lingers when the spell is cast.
The line has length but a Vamp
goes even unto the 4th dimension."
Sphinxette is quite unable to translate the above document. "Beer's"
reactions to questions seem to become
more complicated every week. But as
a steady contributor he is much appreciated.
No, my dear, even if you feel that
your line is exceptionally snappy, you
should not use it in the main hall. It
is very sad to see children who should
be studying, wandering round the corridors. Also it is a dead give-away.
If you have a crush, to haunt the hall
is the surest way of letting the whole
college know about it.
Yes, of course I understand, but it
wasn't very tactful, was it? People
are apt to discover what happened at
High Jinks, you know.
It is too early in your friendship to
begin cutting lectures for him, my
child. That should come later—after
you have gone to the dance with him,
for instance. It is very sad to discover that you have wasted a lecture
on an unworthy object—you may need
it again and, of course, I can't advise
you to overcut.
If you don't care particularly don't
try to explain. It can't be done. If
you do care, again, don't try to explain, but ask her out. There are
some good shows coming, "Dumbells"
and "The Four Horsemen of the
Apocalypse," for instance. Few girls
can resist the opportunity of being
taken to see either Captain Plunkett
or Rudolph Valentino. In fact if she
refuses you might as well decide that
all is over between you. Remember—
it is most important to ask her to
something she doesn't want to miss.
Then—if it seems necessary, you can
explain afterwards.
Ask him to tea on Sunday. It is
almost impossible to handle a line properly in the Cafeteria—especially
when the Theatre Night company is
rehearsing next door.
Tanlac—Yes. But with a difference.
If you feel the effects of one bottle
what will be the result of several
glasses? And if a chorus girl is the
tired science man's delight what can
a ferocious savage do to the heart of
a co-ed? Of course, a cook book isn't
necessary—there is a delightful uncertainty about l'homne roasted a la
mode—he may turn out to be almost
anything. Truly these are dark mysteries, my brethren, but much may be
revealed if one utters the magic word
—Zam Buk.
In other words, February 16th is
Theatre Night. Yes, we know we have
said that before but there are some
things that are worth saying twice—
and seeing twice. Of course you
can't see Theatre Night twice so be
sure not to miss it the first time. The
date? February 16th—don't forget
to keep that night open.
The cast for the spring play "Mr.
Pim Passes By," has been finally
chosen after many keenly contested
try-outs, and rehearsals are well
under way.
The leading roles are being taken
by Mr. Jack Clyne as "George Marden" and Miss Betty Somerset as
"Olivia." The young people's parts in
the play will be acted by Miss Geor-
gina McKinnon as "Diana," and Mr.
Wells Coates as "Brian." Other
parts have been assigned to Miss
Kirsteen Leverson—who acts the
part of the elderly but Energetic
aunt; Mr. Neil McCallum, "Mr. Pim";
Misses Isobel Miller and D. Holmes
act the role of the maid at alternate
Committees for the production of
the play are now being arranged. The
costume committee will be convehed
by Miss Eloise Angell while the properties committee is convened by
Miss Marjorie Agnew. Bob Hunter
has again taken over the duties of
business manager.
The play will be presented at the
Avenue Theatre in the early part of
March, and will run for a prolonged
period after the holidays in outside
Dr. and Mrs. A. F. B. Clark entertained last Saturday, Jan. 28, at a
delightful tea in their Kerrisdale home
in honor of the members of the Players' Club. Mrs. Wood and Miss D.
Jefferd poured and Miss Mclnnes cut
the ices.
The Letters Club meeting on Tuesday night took the form of a discussion of Modern English Poetry. Brief
talks on various aspects of the subject were given by three members.
Miss Isobel Miller treated "Realism,"
Miss Sallee Murphy, "Free Verse,"
and Miss Annie Anderson, "Evolutionary Thought." The meeting was at
the home of Mrs. M. R. Stevenson, and
a good attendance proved the interest
of the members in the topic.
The meeting of the Women's Lit.
in the Auditorium on Wednesday, Feb.
8, at 3.15, will take the novel form of
an open debate. Participants will be
at liberty to speak in support of either
the affiirmative or the negative of the
resolution, "Resolved, that a system
of separate education is preferable to
one of co-education." The decision
will be taken by a standing vote. All
women are urged to attend the meeting and to avail themselves of this
opportunity of gaining practice in
public speaking. Refreshments will
be served at the conclusion of the
debate by the women of Arts '23.
An interesting meeting of the
Chemistry Society was held on Tuesday, Jan. 31, in the Physics Lecture
Mr. C. Sivertz, Sc. '23, spoke briefly
on "Photo-engraving," tracing the
development of the art from its beginning to the present. He described
the preparation of various types of
plates for book and newspaper work.
Mr. Norman Bell spoke on "Aluminum." He outlined the process of
mining and purifying bauxite and the
electrolytic preparation of aluminum.
He then told of the properties and
advantages of the latter substance.
The next meeting of the club will
be held Monday, February 6, at 7.45
sharp at the home of Miss Dunbar,
224 13th Ave. W. Miss Dunbar will
address the club on the subject of
"Hormones," and Mr. Blythe Eagles
will discuss "Catalysis and Enzymes."

Varsity was unfortunate in losing
the final game to Nats as they had the
edge all the way but got none of the
Nats pressed from the face-off,
Christie relieved and aided by Still-
well and Demedoff rushed Nat's defence. End to end rushes followed in
one of which Nats were dangerous but
missed an open shot. Christie and
Colton broke up many rushes and lead
many attacks on Nats' territory. Varsity pressed for a while but Nats
broke away and scored on a rebound
half a minute before time.
Second period started with a Varsity rush and found Nats bottled up
behind their own blue line. A nice
rush by Nats followed but Colton intercepted and carried the puck right
down the ice, missing on a curve shot
by a mere "dsc."
McCutcheon was stick-handling
well but held on to the puck too much
when he should have passed. Period
ended with Varsity pressing.
Nats pressed at start of 3rd period,
but Varsity soon started rushing
again, and passed up some good openings to score. McPherson came close
to scoring in this preiod, his luck
being consistent with the .run of Varsity's breaks.
Five minutes before time Nats
broke away and scored an easy goal.
Varsity kept up a torrid pace but the
game ended with the blue and gold
two goals down. Line-up: Clark,
Christie, Colton, Demedoff, Stillwell,
iucPherson, McCutcheon, Stewart.
On Wednesday, Jan. 25, Varsity
Junior Hockey team forced the Towers into a ten-minute overtime match,
losing the game in the last five minutes, the final score being 4-3. The
ice was poor but did not stop' both
teams from going at top speed.
Rear opened the scoring by an individual rush and bounced the puck
past the Towers' goalie. The Towers
soon evened up the score by a swift
clean shot from centre ice. In the
second period Cochrane again put
Varsity in the lead but again the
Towers evened the score. The Towers
were the first to score in the third
period but Cochrane soon made a neat
shot from centre ice.
In the first five minutes of over
time play neither team scored; in the
second five the Towers notched the
winning goal, making the final score
4-3. Varsity line-up was: Weir, Gug-
gerick, Rear, Cochrane, Lipsey, Mor
gan, Ross, Russell.
Saturday night, and yet another Sunday morning. The bunch that went
up by night were so enthusiastic over
the trip that probably much of the
climbing hereafter will be done by
In the second round of the Mainland
Cup Tie, Varsity tied with Westminster. The game was played at Heather
Park, and it developed into a regular
mud-battle. Time and again, in the
first half, the ball was in the Westminster goal-mouth, but a jinx always
cleared. Cant notched the first goal
in the first three minutes of play. The
blue and gold clearly had the advantage in the first'half, but the second
half was a different story. The Westminster forwards pressed strongly,
seemed more at home on that sea of
mud, and the result was a goal. They
made many dangerous rushes, but our
defence was on the job, although to
Mosher goes the credit of many brilliant saves. The usual standard of
Varsity play seemed absent, the forward line did not work together, the
right wing was weak, and even the
backs showed a lack of form. However, the ground was in such terrible
condition, that good play was impossible. Although Mainland Cup ties
are supposed to be played overtime in
case of a draw, the referee decided
that the grounds were impossible for
further play. The game ended in the
score of 1-1, a very lucky score for
Varsity. The consensus of the spectators' opinion was "If Varsity had
played overtime, they would have lost
the game, because they seemed helpless in that mud." Next game our
full quota will be out, McLeod and
Cameron now being released from the
rugby squad, so we can confidently
hope for a different result. The team
was as follows: Mosher, Crute,
Baker, Emery, Buckley, Say, Calder,
Cant, Lundie, Jackson, and Rushbury.
N.B.—Rushbury, Jackson and particularly Buckley should be mentioned for their conspicuous devotion to
soccer, even when it meant a mud-
bath. Buckley so liked the latter, that
he rolled in it. (The condition of the
ground was due to a sewer pipe bursting the night before.)    Poor Buckley!
The meeting of the club on Friday
resulted in the election of J. F. Walker
Sc. 22 as President. Johnny has been
the mainstay and moving spirit of the
club ever since its inception. It was
he who first urged the necessity of
building a cabin and it is due to his
untiring efforts both as an organizer
and worker that there is one now. It
seemed only fitting that the organization of which he has for so long been
the virtual head should, before he
leaves, recognize it in some way.
Other business on tap was the election of a Marshal. It was decided to
enlarge the office and to appoint two
lady marshals as well as two for the
men. Miss Mathews, Miss Gignac,
Charlie Evans and Henry Johnson
were appointed and will look after
arrangements for hikes for the remainder of the year.
The Club was well represented on
Grouse Mountain during the weekend. Three parties made the climb,
one on Saturday afternon, another on

The attempt to convert was unsuccessful and the final whistle blew immediately.

Provincial series sees them bring
home the championship after an exhibition of team play in advance of
anything previously shown this season.

Since the abolition of the C.O.T.C.
at the close of the war there have been
many inquiries as to the military
training afforded students here, and
considerable astonishment expressed
that we have no Officers' Training
Corps. As a result of this President
Klinck appointed a committee to consider and report on the situation.
After carefully ascertaining the status
of a C. O. T. C. at this university, are
leges, and sounding the Militia Officials for their attitude, the committee
presented its report. It is there recommended that each male student in
The University of British Columbia
be asked to answer the following
"In the event of the establishment
of a C. O. T. C. at this univresity, are
you prepared to enlist and become an
efficient member of the Corps?"
Cards bearing this question will be
handed out at tomorrow's meeting
and left in the hands of the students
for a week in order to permit the
fullest and frankest discussion of the
subject. If one hundred and fifty
favorable replies are received steps
will be taken to establish a corps. If
not, the Students' Council will be
asked to express an opinion as to what
the military policy should be.
As we see it there are three considerations which would affect our
decision in this matter. First, is
there any value in the military training one would receive in the C.O.T.C?
The movements can be learned fairly
quickly. But the habit of discipline
is much more essential yet much more
difficult to acquire. Very little of it
would be gained in two, or even three,
hours a week throughout the college.
Secondly, is there any physical advantage? Two years ago a correspondent pointed out through our columns that "Forming fours provided
the very minimum of exercise." But
route marches while not providing the
maximum of exertion might do something in that way and at the same
time help to form some conception of
discipline through 'esprit de corps.'
The third consideration is even less
tangible than the above, yet it is one
which University students will be
quick to recognize. It is simply this:
Would the inauguration of a C.O.T.C.
in our University be in keeping with
the spirit of the times ? We leave the
answer to the individual.
Some of us at least have not forgotten a certain agitation which
shook these Halls of Learning nearly
a year ago. We refer, of course, to
the controversy regarding the place
of fraternities in the U. B. C. which
resulted in a general meeting of the
Student Body being called for March
22 last year.
It will be remembered that, as a
result of this meeting, a committee
was appointed with instructions to
probe thoroughly the question of fraternities, to solicit advice from other
and older Colleges, and to submit its
findings to the Alma Mater Society
in the form of a Report. This Report
has recently been drawn up, and has
been posted on the notice board for
general inspection.
It was also suggested at the above
meeting that the Constitution of the
Alma Mater Society be amended so
that these secret organizations within
the Student Body might be officially
recognized by the A. M. S. They
would, of course, be required to furnish the Student Council with a full
list of Members and Officers, and an
outline of their aims and objects. Such
a measure, it seems to us, might be
expected to appeal to the moderate
mind on both sides, and to provide a
suitable basis of adjustment for the
"frat" question.
It is probable that the matter of
fraternities will come up for discussion before a general meeting of the
Student Body in the .near future.
Before that time, it is our obvious
duty to familiarize ourselves with the
Report mentioned above. Let us preserve fair and open minds on this subject, and endeavour to refrain from
that bitterness of thought and speech
which proved such an unfortunate
feature of last year's discusion.
A communication from the Registrar of the Dept. of Education in
Saskatchewan states that no wouid-be
teachers need apply for summer
schools. The provincial university

University of British Columbia,
January 28, 1922.
Editor "Ubyssey"
Dear Mr. Editor,—I was greatly interested in
a letter in your last issue by E. S. F. '23
concerning the matter of a college emblem,
but think that he is on the wrong track. A
Moose or a Bull track.
In these days of disarmament and peace,
that there is one in our col lege who could
think of our having an emblem with such a
martial bearing and of such avowed pugnacity
is to me a severe blow. But perhaps I am
showing the wrong spirit in thus criticising
one who no doubt thinks that his idea is as
good if not better than mine, so I state my
idea and let you, Mr. Editor, and the rest of
the college judge.
My suggestion is that we have a "Hot Dog
Rampant on a Field of Bread."
This on the outside may seem to be a poor
emblem to include "every quality desirable in
our college," but when you look into the situation or get within your system all that is
included in the "Hot Dog" you no doubt will
think  differently.
Let us take first the word in the Emblem,
"Hot." It is a sign of all that Exuberance of
youth, that spirit of reform for which any
live college is noted; that enlightened optimism that in time past has set the world on
fire. Or as the Good Book has it, "Thou art
neither hot nor cold, therefore will I spew
thee out of my mouth."
And who will say that the conception of a
dog does not include all these qualities of
faithfulness of duty, of tenderness, of affection that should be the mainstay of any youth
going out into the cold, cold world.
Then to consider the Field of Bread. In
these days of economic upheaval what could
be more appropriate than having included in
our emblem that staff of life to the working
man, that symbol of outraged justice.
Hoping that this will find favor with students and E, S.  F., I remain,
Yours in hope for a "Hot Dog,"
Editor Ubyssey:
Dear Sir,—I feel that the time is ripe for
some mention to be made of the ridiculous
manner in which certain of our daily paprs
report the activities of the organizations under
the Alma Mater Soc. of the University. Often
the facts are not there and the details are so
tar-fetched that it is evident that some would-
be reporter is practising the art of "plugging."
The Society columns are the most evident
examples of plugging that could be quoted.
Not so many days ago one of the papers published an advance report of the dance of the
Agriculture Undergraduate Soc. The excutive
of this organization was not interviwed at all,
and consequently the incorrect nature of the
report. There was a long list of the invited
guests and not one person had at the time
been invited and there was also a list of the
patrons and patronesses which was wholly
On Tuesday last I noted that among those
noticed at the "Varsity-Rowing Club game on
Saturday, were —" etc. If my memory serves
me right I believe that the game was between
Varsity and the Van. Rep. team.
The above are but two glaring examples of
the incorrectness of the reports and their
unofficial nature I would like to point out
that these reports are not made by the organizations responsible for the functions. I do
not believe that they are made by regular
reporters on the staff of the papers in question and I have every reason to believe that
they are made by students who desire to make
a   little   extra  pin-money.
If this latter be true and I am not at all
certain that it is not, well surely these students have enough interest in the University
and its welfare to at least report the events
in the  proper manner.
Aside from the effect of creating the general impression that there are far too many
social functions at the University, no person
delights in seeing his or her name in two lists
at the same time for functions which were
neld the evening before or which are to be
held at some future date or both. I do not
oelieve that anybody would favor the publication of his or her name in connection with
any  report of any social functions.
I am arranging interviews with the various
Society Editors of the papers with a view to
ascertaining for certain who does the reporting of the above mentioned events so that the
Students Council may place the responsibility
for them upon those who make them.
Pres. A. M.  S.
Editor, Ubyssey:
Sir,—My attention has recently been drawn
to a matter which I feel sure has escaped the
attention of the University authorities and of
right-thinking students. It is a matter of
very grave importance and affects the well-
being, not only of our University but of our
Country. As a sincere wellwisher of the University I feel it my duty to direct your attention to matters vitally concerning the progress
of  that   institution.
As a patrotic citizen I was intensely gratified to note the laudable zeal with which the
University authorities suppressed radical propaganda among the students. In this connection we owe a debt of gratitude to the British
Empire Weekly for its patriotic exposure of
seditious and SOCIALISTIC activities among
the students. I had thought the University
well purged of such seditious and subversive
influences. But I have been disillusioned, as
I shall proceed to show.
A few days ago I chanced to hear my
nephew, a fine wholesome lad, singing a very
indecorous and irreverent song, one line of
which went something like this:
"Hallelujah, I'm a bum-bum, Hallelujah
bum again "
I have since discovered that this song is a
part of one used by the I. W. W. I questioned
my nephew and was informed that this sacre-
ligious song is widely used by college students.
Am I right, Sir, in my information? If so,
do you think it right or fitting that the University to which is entrusted the moulding and
the upbringing of a nation's leaders should
countenance the singing of such songs, songs
that are irreverent, indecent, and unbecoming
to  young  ladies  and gentlemen.
Need I expatiate on the seriousness of this
fact. Here we find University students imbibing at the formative period of life the
subversive and immoral doctrines of such an
organiation as the' I. W. W. Who does not
know of that infamous crew of incendiaries
and assassins ; who is not aware of the crimes
and atrocities which it has committed in a
spirit of wanton criminality? This is the
thin edge of the radical wedge . The slimy
serpent of BOLSHEVISM is insinuating its
perverted ideas and misguided beliefs into our
Universities and corupting the youth, the hope
of the nation. This is but one example of the
sugar-coated SYNDICALISM with which the
young students of our colleges are being infected.
It is with a reluctance overmastered by a
sense of civic and national duty that I present these unvarnished facts for the consideration of faculty and students. It is the duty
of every right thinking student and citizen
to expose and defeat these endeavours to corrupt the youth of the country by instilling in
them these pernicious and revolutionary doctrines, immediate action to rectify this regret-
able state of affairs is necessary, if the University is to win the confidence of the loyal
and patriotic citiens of this city and province,
upon whose support the moving of the University to its permanent home at that incomparable  site   at   Point  Grey  depends.
Confident that every sane and right thinking
person   will   act   in    accordance    with    these
heartfelt injunctions and admonitions, I am,
Your fervent well-wisher,
The Editor, "Ubyssey":
Dear Sir,—I read in the last issue the article
on College Symbols, and humbly suggest as
one for our own college—the salmon. The
four college years could each be assigned a
stage in the life of the fish—Spawn for
Freshies, Minnows for Sophs., Trout for Juniors, and a name, as sockeye, for the seniors.
Our Christmas grads. could appropriately be
called—canned fish The salmon takes four
years to attain that stage where it will be of
use to the world, and so do we in the college.
The salmon is famous as a sporting fish,
always fighting till the last. Our teams have
made themselves famous also, and are known
for their fighting spirit^ The fish idea is not
new to the college as we have already given
it a prominent place in one of our best yells—
"Catfish," so why not have it as a symbol?
Owing to lack of space, a letter
which throws a new light on the
Rugby discussion will not be published
till next week.
At the meeting of the Board of
Governors last Monday night, sanction was given for the presentation
of a cup for interclass sports. The
Governor's Cup will be presented to
the Champion Class and although the
methods of competition have not been
finally decided upon they will include
the Track Meet, Arts '20 Relay,
Rugby, Tug-of-War. The presentation of the cup was decided upon by
unanimous vote of the Board who
have a whole-hearted interest in
sports, of all kinds.

Dr. M. S. Wade of Kamloops, in
making this early history his own
particular study, has taken advantage
of the many opportunities that have
come his way to become familiar with
the facts and fancies associated with
the pioneers of this land that is still
so little known to the world at large.
On Thursday of this week he will
favor the Vancouver Institute with an
account of some of the incidents in
this early history, taking for his subject, "Some Pathfinders of the B. C.
"Here is a man to whom dreams
are the dearest things in life, because
he has known the awful reality of
facts." In these words from the
"Poetic Review," Professor F. G. C.
Wood, on Thursday evening before
the Vancouver Institute, opened an
address on Lord Dunsany. The speaker sketched the Irish dramatist's life.
Then, in vivid readings from "The
Gods of the Mountains" and other
plays, he transported his audience into
the remote land beyond the realm of
facts, where Dunsany loves to place
his dramas.
As a result of the try-outs held on
Friday afternoon, the honor of being
the first U. B. C. women to take part
in an intercollegiate debate falls to
Miss Dorothy Walsh and Miss Sallee
Murphy, both of Arts '23. These two,
chosen from the nine contestants by
Dr. Eastman, Dr. Boggs, and Dr. MacDonald,' will represent U. B. C. at
Willamette University, Salem, Oregon, on February 24, when they will
uphold the negative of the resolution,
"Resolved that the Western nations
and Japan are justified in refusing to
relinquish the territorial rights in
China which they hold by treaty." To
assist the two debaters in the preparation of material for the debate, the
judges appointed Mrs. Ida Breeze,
Arts '23, Miss Grace Smith, Arts '23,
and Miss Helen McGill, Arts '25.

I dreamed last night that I was ill:
A "fag" danced on my window sill,
And out beyond and through the haze
I saw a cabbage leaf ablaze.
I turned—I felt my stomach gripe—
And there on the bed a corn cob pipe
Was sleeping with a half-dead match.
I closed my eyes, I grabbed my thatch,
I tried to shriek, I tried to cry—
Two fighting men went sliding by.
I heard a viol, I heard a drum,
I saw a boy cut off his thumb.
I heard a song, I saw a dame,
I saw some things I cannot name.
I saw a deck of cards, and then
I heard a tinkle, I saw some men—
The other things I'll leave untold—
When I woke up the night was cold.

The Washington team is the first
real college nine that ever landed in
Japan. The Sun Dodger baseball
squad arrived home in December,
after winning twenty-four out of
thirty-one games from various Japanese college teams. They were the
guests of Waseda University while in
that country.

In ten months' time Sun Fo '16, a
former student of the University of
California and son of Dr. Sun Yat
Sen, the President of China, has
transformed the city of Canton from
a relic of the middle ages to a modern, sanitary and well-governed city.
Recording the principal events of
the college career by the use of movies is a plan started at Princeton.
Last fall the class of '21 began taking
pictures of its members for use at
reunions in later years, and at present
the senior class is doing likewise. All
interesting features and events that
have occurred during the four years
will be reproduced in the movies.—The

University of Arizona.—A bill has
been laid before the House of Representatives of the University which, if
passed, will grant bronze A's to reporters on the staff of the University
paper. Since the editor and heads of
the departments get gold and silver
A's and a unit for each semester's
work, while the staff reporters get
only their practice with no other incentive, this question has been
brought before the House of Representatives with the sincere backing of
the entire Wildcat Staff.
Last Thursday evening all the followers of good King Terpischore, from
the Freshman and Sophomore classes
of the faculty of agriculture, gathered at Laurel. After the welcome
interlude for supper, a quaint magician appeared and did tricks mystic
and marvellous. At the end of this
performance the voice of "Wilky"
was heard saying "Let us dance and
be merry," and all the throng echoed
aye. /
(It was noticed that certain members of the class of Horace and the
tribe of Arts appeared after the repast and demolished the fragments
and nectar that was left.)
Snappy music, rich warm lights,
gay laughter! That is what charac
terized the dance at Killarney last
Tuesday night when Arts '22, whose
parties are rapidly becoming famous,
celebrated the most successful affair
of the season. Even Mr. and Mrs.
De Long couldn't resist slipping down
stairs and joining in the fun. Every
body was happy, everybody looked
nice, everybody was dancing. Mr.
Hurst made an excellent "Medley
crier" with his huge tin whistle, and
it was exciting when he announced
"ladies' rush," to see the men huddled
together trying to look indifferent,
while the pretty things fluttered
nearer and nearer.
When the lights were lowered for
the moonlight, one young gentleman's
voice was heard in shrill vociferations
of outraged propriety, "I'll scream!
I'll scream!" However, on his partner
protesting earnestly that her intentions were harmless he consented to
proceed. Later on in the evening another eminent individual was seen
drawing pictures on the back of his
partner's programme to illustrate how
her nose curved when she laughed,
Probably it was the result of the
The patrons and patronesses—Mrs.
and Dr. Sedgwick, Dr. and Mrs. Mac
Donald and Mr. Angus — entered
heartily into the spirit of the evening.
The class would like also to express
gratitude to the ever hard-working
executive, especially Mr. McAfee, who
spares no energies beforehand and
whose complete self-forgetfulness during the evening is largely responsible
for the reputation Arts '22 has gained
for the friendliest and most attractive
dances of the year.
The regular meeting of the Agriculture Discussion Club was held on
Wednesday, Jan. 25, in the Auditorium. In the absence of the President,
Mr. W. J. Riley, Mr. S. S. Phillips

buy in pre-war days.
The blue suits sold at $75 and $85 in 1920
were only poor imitations of this quality.

A very enjoyable evening was spent
at the home of Prof, and Mrs. Robertson last Monday evening when the
regular meeting of the Classics Club
was held. Miss Catherine Rees and
Miss M. E. Bell, both of Arts '23, read
very interesting papers on various
phases of Roman Life. After an interesting discussion refreshments
were served.
A. M. U. S.   SMOKER
(Continued from page 1)
Doc. Sedgwick in his speech waxed
sentimental even to the point of quoting poetry. Doc's speech ended the
proceedings, and the men of Arts,
thoroughly permeated with smoke,
Apple Cider (?) and jazzy hallucinations, voted the second annual Arts'
Smoker a sizzling humdinger.
Charlie Wright of Sc. '17 and former President of the Alma Mater, now
carries around with him a B.Sc.
(Brit. Col.) M.Sc. (Brit. Col.), and
Ph.D. (McGill). He got his Doctor's
degree last spring and also won the
Ramsay Memorial Scholarship. Dr.
Wright, or "Chas" as he would prefer to be called, is now carrying on
postgraduate work at University College, London, England.
Chas. is still single and we believe
he will manage to hold out till he
again reaches America.
Bill Sutcliffe of Arts '19, and also
former President of the Alma Mater
is still at Harvard. There he indulges
in the study of Economics, and incidentally passed on some of his knowledge to the fair sex at Simmons College near Harvard. As a dashing
young bachelor he seems to enjoy this
part of his course and can we blame
him when he has 1800 young ladies
who are equally delighted to listen to
our Bill.
Bill is fast climbing the ladder for
his Ph.D. and, the weather being fair,
should reach the top this spring, when
we hope he will once more hit the
trail for B. C.
From previous accounts, we understand that Bill will obtain two degrees
this spring, his Ph.D. and— well, we
will just whisper it, for it's confidential you understand, so don't tell anyone. Yes, it is true, for although Bill
is not yet a married man, neither is
he single. Our heartiest congratulations, Bill, old boy.
