 HOMECOMING CELEBRATIONS NEXT SATURDAY

No. 11
CONGREGATION
SPEAKER FLAYS
INDIVIDUALISM
Many Degrees Are
Conferred On
Wednesday
"The life of the next generation will be exciting and
interesting. I hope that you
will meet that next generation and its problems with
your mind open, and your
heart alive."
SIXTY DIGRESS
8uch was the tenor of Dr. Sedge-
wick's address to the graduating
class last Wednesday afternoon, as
some 60 degrees were conferred at
the Tenth Annual Congregation.
With all the accustomed color
and dignity of tradition, tho Congregation was formally opened by
Chancellor   MeKoohnlo.   In   his
brief prefatory remarks, ho had
words of praise for tho achievements of tho class, and at tho
same time an exhortation to thorn
to  support  tho   University  and
what   It   roprosontod   wherovor
thoy might bo placed In life.
He was followed by Or. L.   S.
Klinck, president of the University,
who briefly introduced the speaker
of the afternoon, commenting on
the honor conferred on the University by the appearance ot one ot
the professorial staff to give the
formal address for the occasion.
MOTIVE OF SERVICE
Dr. Sedgewick's speech was essentially an appeal to the graduates
to bring to society not only their
learning, but also that Interest for
the common welfare of their fellow-
men which alone would fully develop their characters. Taking his
text from an oration of Donne's
in 1626, he stressed the futility of
mere learning without philanthropic motives ot service behind It.
"You are gifted with greater
understanding than the majority
of your follows ara," ho deolared .
"You should understand tho world
you live In bettor than ordinary
men. You should bo able to see
less dimly than your follows tho
possibilities of tho future. You
should havo a more balanced
judgment than tho mon around
you. If this Is not true, then you
can contribute littlo to tho soeloty
you aro entering."
NOT IDEALISM
Donne, he said, felt that only the
"public heart" could save a person
from the narrow restrictions of individualism. "Understanding needs
yet the touch of emotion to make
it operative and beneflclent. The
full thing comes only when the
large comprehension has behind it
the force of will to put It to public
use.
"You must bring to your society
not only the knowledge you have
got, but the desire to make it effective. This is no inflated Idealism: for there Is no great end to
be attained except by devotion to
something outside one's self —
something larger and nobler than
we are."
Drawing to his conclusion, the
speaker lamented the training given University men on this continent. "The defect of American colleges,' he charged, "has been that
they have turned out men impressed in blood and brain with the
doctrine of individualism. And individualism spells the death of the
public heart."
He struck a pessimistic note as
he cited the failures of University graduates to take an interest
in and to serve the public.
"The bulk of University men are
(us  selfishly  Individualistic  as  the
great   bulk   of   their   fellows.    To
which class will you belong—to the
hulk, or to the few exceptions, the
tew who hav acquired this passion
for the public service?    What attitude will you take," he challenged
liis audience, "in the corning conflict between individualism and the
.treat Ideal of the 'public heart'?"
Following the address, the graduating class were admitted  to the
University   nnd   granted   their   degrees   in   the   traditional   manner.
.Sonic   400   people   were   present   at
the ceremony.
Saskatchewan Boys
Steal Too Many
Signs Say Officials
Sign-stealing Is to bo abolished
at tho University of Saskatchewan under tho pressure ot tho S.
R. C. and tho University officials.
So advanced had tho practice become that letters and warning
havo boon reeolvod from downtown firms by tho University -officials. "It Is unfortunate," said
Marvin Carson, President of tho
S. R. C, "that what Is probably
eonsldorod as a childish or playful prank may quite possibly bo
made tho basis of a criminal action, and for this reason tho Students' Counell fools it their duty
to warn students of tho serious
possibilities of their action."
Without waiting for aetlon to
bo taken by University officials
or down-town firms, tho S. R. C.
Intimates that thoy might take aetlon against offenders, sitting as
a Students' Court under tho constitution.
Vocational Talk
Outlines Field Of
Salesmanship
Capt. F. N. Hann Opens
Series of Noon
Addresses
"There is no such thing as
a born salesman,' Capt. F. M.
Hann informed students Wednesday noon at the first Vocational Guidance lecture of
the season.
BE8T ARE QUIET
Dealing in his talk on the "Science of Salesmanship," with qualities essential to succesful salesmanship, Capt. Hann said that salesmen born with any necessary qualities too often develop a repellent
overbearing attitude.
"The best salesmen I have ever
met," he stated, "*rt quite ordinary people of quiet, dignified bearing and a few well chosen words."
Emphasizing the point that everybody is a salesman whether it is
only himself or his services he is
selling, the speaker stated that the
power of selling comes only from
the study of modern salesmanship,
the development of character and
the cultivation of the mind so as
to be able to influence the client's
decision either by suggestion or
auto-suggestion.
CHARACTER IMPORTANT
"The most Important factor in
successful Belling, however, is character," Capt. Hann told his audience, "and the most Important factors in the development of character are earnestness, cheerfulness,
self-respect, courtesy, faith and
hope.
"Earnestness is a very dynamic force. It radiates In every
direction and sets up vibrations
affecting both the customer and
yourself. Earnestness gives you
additional power of reasoning and
fills your mind with forceful arguments.
"Cheerfulness is a very important element. As an employer. I tell
you that cheerfulness is the best investment of your energy you could
make. People hate gloom and oppression, even those who manifest
it themselves."
Another suggestion on how to
become successful was the cultivation of the voice at an easy, natural pitch, never raising the voice
in excitement or irritation which
causes the customer to become excited and irritated.
CLEAN AND NEAT
The salesman must look clean
and neat, and must also appear
successful, If he wishes to be a success. Capt. Hann In conclusion
warned the students to beware of
connecting themselves with firms
of doubtful reputation, even though
the salary may be higher.
"When you get out as a salesman,
Investigate the firm just as carefully as they will investigate you.
Be very careful,—a wrong decision
may ruin your entire future career. Pick out a good firm and stay
with it."
"MANITOBAN"
HAS TROUBLE
WITH LABOR
Part of Staff Walks
Out In Protest
Over Printers
UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA, Winnipeg, Oct. 28. —
Breaking into the Manitoban
office at the Broadway Building of the University of Manitoba while the rush to meet
the deadline was at its height,
Wednesday evening, a group
of United College students
demanded that the staff of the
paper stage a "walk-out" and
cease publication until such
time as the University of
Manitoba Students Union
Council awarded the Manitoban printing contract to a
firm employing union labor.
LEAVE THEIR DESKS
Three members of the^staff, Ed.
Parker,   W.   Saxton   and   Morton
Parker signed a petition presented
by Ken Mackenzie, the leader of
the strikers, and left their desks.
Jack Martin, Jacob Cohen and Gor
don Savage, also joined the strlk
ers but refused to sign the petition,
Charles MacKensle, the Managing Editor; Tom Smith and Reg.
Bundy refused to Join the strikers
and remained at their posts. They
deolared that they havo supported the views of the strikers to a
certain extent but they were not
in sympathy with their methods.
These three  and the  Editor In
Chief, Darcy Dolan, finished getting the paper out.
When questioned by Ken Mac-
Kenzle, the leader of the agitators,
Darcy Dolan, the Editor-in-chief of
the Manitoban, declared that he
had brought the matter before the
Council of the University of Manitoba Students Union Council on
two occasions. A commission had
been struck off to investigate the
matter and the Council had signified s Its satisfaction with the report presented by the commission.
CHARGES DENIED
All the charges laid by the strikers were officially denied by the
Dahl Company Ltd., printers, who
have been printing the Manitoban,
in a sworn statement dated October 23rd, 1936.
Strike leaders have been investigating conditions In the Dahl
plant and still Insist that decent
living wages are not being paid.
They are being assisted by the
Winnipeg Printers' Union. Their
slogon Is "A union stamp on the
Manitoban."
A special commission under the
chairmanship of John Robinson,
president of the University of Manitoba Students Union, is Investigating the charges laid by the strikers
and a report of the commission's
findings will be presented at the
next Council meeting.
Meanwhile a temporary agreement has been reached between the
strikers and the Editor-in-chief, W.
Darcy Dolan.
Rugby Game And Tea Dance To
Feature Homecoming Nov. 7
ALUMNI TO HOLD
ANNUAL MEET
MONDAY
As a sort of reaction to the
frivolous and boisterous celebrations of younger students
this fall, the grave old alumni
will hold their annual meetitfg
on Monday, Nov. 2, at 6.46
p.m. in the form of a dinner
in Spencer's Dining Room,
the cost of which will be 60
cents.
EJECTION OP EXECUTIVE
The speaker will be Prof. H. F.
Angus, who will speak on the subject of his recent trip to Europe.
Another feature of the meeting
will be the election of executive.
The present executive is J. N. Burnett, president; Dorothy MacRae,
vice-president; Milton Owen, secretary.
Homecoming Day is slated for
Saturday, November 7th. The program includes a rugby game in the
University Stadium and a Tea
Dance, in the Gymnasium.
Annual fees are now payable to
the treasurer. They may be paid at
the meeting or sent to the Treasurer, Alumni Association, The University of British Columbia.
AUDREY HORWOOD
Prairie-Varsity
Games Mooted
Rugby Union Approval
Needed for Combination
Match
This year the Homecoming Saturday afternoon of November 7 will
cater to both those who would rather die for old England than Bee a
game of Canadian football, and for
those who would rather wear a
monocle than see a game of English rugby. Homecoming will do
this by having a game of each, on
the same field, for the same admission price, on the same afternoon.
Varsity and Occasionals will play
rugby, and Varsity and either Alberta or Saskatchewan will play
Football.
The  only thing  that has  to  go
Stage Is Set For
Special Meet
Pass System Will Face
Test Next Wednesday
The Pass System proposal was
given a final once-over by Council
last Monday evening, and is ready
for presentation to the student
body at the Alma Mater meeting
next Wednesday.
Copies of the schedule that appeared in a recent Ubyssey have
been made and will be in the hands
of all attending the meeting. In
this way, any student wishing to
speak on the question will have at
his fingertips the necessary and
accurate information.
OTHER MEETINGS OFF
During the month since the last
meeting campus organizations have
discussed the Pass System and several of these will attend the Alma
Mater meeting in a body to express
their opinions.
The whole matter will hinge upon
the acceptance by the student body
of an additional $3 levy on A. M. S.
fees to cover the expense of the
pass, the latter being worth about
$6.25.
All noon-hour meetings have been
cancelled for Wednesday in order
that every student may be at the
main meeting.
Audrey Horwood, W.U.S. president, who.is looking after arrangements for the Alumni Day
tea dance in the gym next Saturday after the Varsity-Occa-
sionals game.
well lest there be no double-header
is the approval of the Rugby Union.
The consent of this body must be
obtained before these two games
can be played at the University
stadium on the afternoon of November 7.
With the approval of the Union,
Varsity will negotiate with the
Alta.-Sask. teams to arrange a one-
game sudden-death match.
The only other difficulty in sight
at the moment is the fact that the
teams out here play Big Four
Rules an dthe teams of Saskatchewan and Alberta play Western
Canadian rules. There are differences in regard to interference and
passing and the teams may have
trouble when they meet. However,
these variations can be smoothed
out in a practice or two so the game
ought to be worth seeing, as it will
be the first Inter-Collegiate Canadian Football that has been played
here for some time.
Sask. Governors
Grant $10,000
To Stadium
Will Have Complete
Building by
1938
UNVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN—(WIPU) — October 28. — The completion of
the University of Saskatchewan Stadium by the fall of
1938 is now a certainty, due
to the decision of the Board
of Governors to grant $10,-
000 for the project. This sum
is to be divided, so that part
goes to the University farm
employees owning the teams
and implements used, and
the other part to be credited
to the arrears in fees of those
students who work on the
construction.
Since the eost of building three
sections this year was found to
be only S10.500, the total estimated eost of the completed
Stadium was reduced SB,000. Next
year the 8tadlum will be able to
begin work with practically no
debt aa all but S100 of the cost
had been raised.
GROUNDS IMPROVED
A first class track along with
additions for the stands are to be
the next improvements, The Intre-
collegiate Track Meet will be held
here next year and it is the aim
of the Association to provide excellent accommodation. The grounds
will be landscaped and a hedge
placed around the fence.
The students were asked to
raise $2,000 and have so far contributed $800. It is expected that
the other $1,200 will be collected
within the next two years. Other
sources of assistance are the faculty, 3,000 grads, and interested
business firms.
STOP PRESS
Word has just been received
that the offer of U.B.C. to play
the winner of the Saturday Saskatchewan-Alberta grid game, in
a sudden-death encounter here on
November 7, has been accepted.
FULL PROGRAM IS
PLANNED FOR
NOV. 7
Alumni and undergraduate
officials are sending out to all
grads within easy distance of
Vancouver, an invitation to
return to the Campus November 7 for Homecoming
Day.
GYM TEA DANCE
In the afternoon, the traditional English Rugby game
between Varsity and Occasionals will be played in the
U. B. C. Stadium. The students have what sports writers
are calling a "wonder team"
this year, and the game promises to be exciting and interesting.
Following the match a tea
dance will be held in the gym,
under the auspices of the Women's Undergraduate Society.
Audrey Horwood and Peggy
Fox are arranging the affair,
and have secured the services
of Lloyd Detwiller and his
campus musicians. Tea will
be 35 cents.
EVERY MEMBER
No evening program has
been planned, but it is hoped
that grads will be able to get
together in parties that night
and re-live the old Saturday
nights that they used to have
at varsity.
Every members of the Alumni who can possibly attend the affairs on November
7 is invited to come, states
Howie McPhee, who is in
charge of the preparations.
The 500 grads who get copies
of this special edition of the
Ubyssey are asked to inform
others of the event and bring
along all of the old crowd.
Physics Professor
Finds He Can't Fool
Freshmen on Coins
By BILL KNOX
It would appear that Phineas Q.
Frosh is not so gullible as he was
last week. He has come through
another scrape with Prof. Shrum,
and has emerged victorious and
unscathed*
The attack took place ln the
Physics lecture laat Thursday,
when Dr. Shrum was demonstrating the Penny-and-Feather Tube.
The worthy prof, went over the top
with the remark, "Here's something that will interest some of you
gamblers. You wijl notice'that the
penny always lights with the head
up. This is peculiar to coins in a
vacuum.
Followed a silence, deeply
fraught with the electric tension of
cogitation. It was, undoubtedly, a
surprise attack. Phineas Q. had
been stung badly in former attacks,
retreating with heavy Injuries to
his freshman pride.
Once stung never stiing again,
so they say, and therefore it was
natural that Phineas suddenly uttered a gurgling cough, raised baleful eyes to his opponent, and fixed
him with a reproachful stare ....
"The penny has heads on both
sides," he rasped.
A grin spread over Professor
Shrum's Face, Phineas was right! Two

ALUMNI DAY
Homecoming Day is generally thought of as a minor
function on this campus. In most of the older American
and Canadian universities this day is the biggest event of
the fall term. Old grads come from near and far, some
even making long train journeys to attend, while the university students make a point of turning out in full force
to welcome them. We, being a young university, have not
as yet the true Alumni Day spirit. However it is never too
late to start.
, This year the executive in charge of arrangements has
planned an exciting Occasional vs. Varsity game on our own
stadium, followed by a tea dance in the gymnasium. Both
these athletic facilities have been built by the money and
effort supplied by students, the majority of whom have now
graduated. Alumni Day will be a chance for the graduates
to make use of their own gymnasium and stadium.
It is also a chance for the University students to turn
out and show the alumni that we appreciate the efforts they
made to give us a better equipped university.
WELL DONE, 39!
Arts '39 staged an unusually successful party Wednesday evening, despite the cloudy outlook that seemed to be
present earlier in the week. During the course of the dance,
the Ubyssey was the recipient of several sarcastic remarks
that referred to our Tuesday editorial calling down the class.
But the party came off, and everybody who attended seemed
to be enjoying themselves. If our editorial helped to make
the affair a success, we don't mind the sarcasm. It would
be much better in the future, however, if such editorials had
no cause to be written.
BICYCLES
After evading the frantically and misdirectedly petitioned vigilance of the Vancouver City Police as far as the
University Oates the car-driving student is apt to relax and
speed up along the tempting University Boulevard. But
hidden perils await him.
If he is an upper classman he knows this and allows for
it; if he is a freshman, a sophomore, or a Scienceman, he is
ignorant and is caught. The drive is not so free of anguish
as the straight pavement and lack of intersections lead them
to believe.
The most pernicious of the menaces is the bicycle. The
following is a generalization of a happening continually recurring in the stretch between the gates and the Mall: Car
"A" coming up behind and slightly to the left of Car "B"
in order to pass Car "B" has a small blind spot ahead of
Car "B" where bicycle, "X", loves to lurk. Car "A" comes
up beside Car "B", Car "B" turns out to pass bicycle "X"
and the result is alphabet soup.
A simple remedy for this would be to require all bicycles
and motorcycles to ride on the left side ot the right side of
the Boulevard, or to make things clearer, on the left side of
the separate pavement supplied for traffic travelling in the
same direction as the two-wheeler. In this way, the driver
of Car "A" could see clearly any bicycle ahead, and the
danger would be averted.

"GRADUATE JEWELLERS WITH UNDERGRADUATE IDEAS"
FIRBANK « LANK
Seymour at
Dunsmuir
SEY. 2088
CONVENIENT DIVIDED PAYMENTS
IT is forecast by the writer of
S.M.U.S. that the graduating
class ln Science Is going to make
a special valedictory gift of a neon
Science crest. The writer goes even
further to remark that such a gift
would be an excellent Idea.
Never has a more idiotic, foolish
and useless Idea been born. The
neon crest, which would be used to
adorn the ballroom at the annual
Science binge, would no more deserve to be given as a valedictory
gift than would a set of classics to
the students of that faculty. It is
the custom, in most universities,
and has been here, for the graduating classes to leave behind a momenta of their years at the university. Such a gift is supposed to
take the shape of something useful
to the university.
It is the policy of Students' Council that the Union Building Fund be
made the recipient ot all beneficent
donations this year. While it may
seem presumptious to suggest to
the graduating Sciencemen what
they should give to the university,
it is only reasonable to expect them
to help on the growth of an idea
that had Its birth in their faculty,
the idea of a student building that
would stand as memory to the late
Dean and Mrs. R. W. Brock.
There is little doubt that the
Union Building will be built within
a year, at least part of It. As long
as that possibility exists, Science-
men should work towards equipping
and making that building a social
center for the campus.
YOU may remark that the neon
crest idea was to be ln the nature
of a special gift, and that the Science grads would, as is usual, cooperate with the Artt In the valedictory gift. But It can't be denied
that the main fund would suffer if
the Science allegiance were split.
After four years at this university, deriving the benefits therefrom, the only thought that the so-
called men of Science have for the
institution Is to leave behind them
a gaudy and useless neon crest. So
typical of the Science mind.
THERE Is a great sorrow on the
campus and students are hinging
their heads ln sadness; for the
Vinery, place of Joys and noon-hour
Interludes, is to be no more. Truly,
all should weep. No longer will
the strains of modern melodies
play as students, free for a brief
hour or so, dance in the cosy rooms
or sip coffee ln the sheltered arbors. Jubilee Park will close up
Monday. Seriously, Its a darn
shame.
SAW QERRY
An Alberta student attending
Washington this summer had the
privilege of seeing Gerry "our own"
McGeer plus a detachment ot R.C.
M.P. and the Seaforth Highlanders
pass in review at the Stadium there
on July 4 and tells his pals at home
that the matchless marching ot the
R.C.M.P. on foot and the wild skirling of the bagpipes and the swing
of the kilts mad ea thrilling picture.
He reports having heard an envious
co-ed murmur, "and they always
get their man." Another outstanding feature of the celebration was
the evidence of the sincere friendship existing between the Canadians and th people to the south.
Maybe this boy doesn't know
Gerry!

STOMACHS   AHOY/    VPE   SHALL
NOT HAVE SYSTEM
REGIMENTATION
Stomachs!
I appeal to you. You are in danger. Your rights are being invaded.
If you do not protest, your most
sacred privileges will be abrogated.
Time was when a stomach was
a self-determining organism. A
stomach either accepted what it
would, or refused it.
It had a choice.
It was able to say:
"This food I do not choose to
take."
Or it could announce:
"This food I relish."
It now appears that even our
stomachs are to be regimented and
whipped into line.
*   *   »
Of course, the campaign against
the freedom of stomachs to express
their own desires is subtle—like all
campaigns which have as their end
the limitation of individual liberty.
The protagonists of the new
thought, like wolves in sheeps'
clothing, will approach you with a
friendly smile upon their lips, and
a gleam of companionship in their
eyes.
They may make you believe, if
you are gullible, that they are
thinking about you.
They may delude you into the
idea that they have your interest
at heart.
But do not be deceived. Behind
their chipper exterior is a fell plot,
a stratagem designed to remove
from the stomachs of the nation
their ability to know when and how
and where they shall be fed.
I have evidence on this matter
and I shall reveal it.
I shall expose this scheme to subvert all our most sacred gastronomic principles.
I get up so early in the morning
that I seldom desire food immediately upon arising,
I don't mind a nice, fresh dish
of prunes—steamed, mind you, but
not boiled—but the idea of consuming any real fodder like bacon and
eggs, for example, would simply
cause my stomach to rise up in its
wrath and smite me in the middle
of the neck.
Some two hours later my turn-
turn is telling me that it does not
particularly like the adherence to
my back.
At times I obey this call of the
untutored insides. More often I
do not, because by then it is time
to be about the concerns of the day.
I say: "Begone, stomach; I shall
attend to you later."
And it may so happen that
around the time of noon when most
of the citizenry are having their
lunch, their midday meal, I still
have not the time, nor by this pass,
the desire, to feed myself.
Around 3 o'clock, though, the
pangs have made themselves so insistent that they cannot be any
longer denied.
I hie me to a restaurant and eat.
Roseate, replete with food, confident that I can brook the next few
hours, I approach the holy of holies,
pass the time of day with the man
behind the counter.
What does he say to me?
Does he say that you are looking
well today and I hope you enjoyed
your meal?
Does he say that we have good
food in this cafe and I know you
like it, otherwise you would not
look so well.
He says nothing of the kind.
He says, well how did you enjoy
your lunch, mister; its kinda late
for lunch, but I suppose you had
breakfast late. I hope it's not going to spoil your dinner.
• *   *
I don't know whether you feel
about it as I do. I don't know
whether you catch the idea as I do.
But I regard this remark as part
of a plan to make me eat three
meals a day whether my stomach
wants it or not.
There is a calm assumption on
his part that I have already eaten
once and that if I have not there
is something wrong with me.
Why? Because nearly everybody
eats breakfast in the morning.
Just because nearly everybody
does it, I should be expected to do
it too.
I resent this imputation. I resent the inference that my stomach
is a communal stomach. My stomach is my very own. I will do with
it what I will and if there are any
retorts, I alone will suffer.
Stomachs of Canada, stand up
for your liberties! They may govern our minds; they may tell us
where our footsteps should wend,
but when it comes to gastronomic
regimentation, then, with every
nerve of us we shall sound the
battle-cry of counter-revolution.
Stomachs, stand Arm! You know
what is best for you.

Correspondence
FOR THE PASS SYSTEM
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Madam:
Am I in U. B. C? I sometimes
wonder. Things here are so different to what I pictured. Some years
ago I met an undergraduate and
the description of college spirit
here at that time! Those of you
who are here today would not believe it, I am sure. To boll down
his flowery description of the college spirit at that time is this —
the young ladies and gentlemen attending the university at that time
were 100 per cent behind college
athletics, dramatics, or any other
form of entertainment the college
had to offer.
But alas! Those days seem to be
gone forever. A young man sits in
a sales wicket from 12 to 1.30 and
■ells three tickets to a rugby game.
I spoke to several fellows about going to the game. One was going
downtown to a show, another was
going mountain climbing and • a
third was going down to Stanley
Park to feed the monkeys peanuts
or something. There were between
26 and 30 students at the game, I
would say. That Is real college
spirit.
There is an offer made to the students via the Pass System to see
these college activities at a very
low cost, namely three dollars.
They pay five dollars at Saskatchewan. What do a lot of students do,
especially Sceincemen? They say
by all means no! We do not want
it! We shall fight it to the last
ditch. We have no time for such
things or we are not interested in
what the Pass System has to offer.

Now, Mr.»Scienceman, if you
would think less of that pretty
blonde in front of you, or that cute
redhead across the street and pay
more attention to your studies and
less attention to your parties you
would have ample time for all college activities and studies as well.
If you would spend more time think'
ing of the university and less time
over your glasses of beer you would
be interested in what the Pass System had to offer. If you have an
pride in this great Institute of learning you will bring fame to the university, not only through your scholastic ability, but by being on the
sidelines cheering those who are
bringing fame to the university on
the rugby field, on the cinder track,
on the stage, or anywhere else, on
to victory. If those who take part
can spare the time to do so, you
can spare the time to be where
student activities centre and belt
them with Hall U. B. 0.1 Miss a
show and see a rugby game.
I am wholeheartedly behind the
Pass System and any of you who
are get behind it and push It
through!   Bring it into being!

GRADS] BUSY
IN MANY
FIELDS_
By PEGGY HIGGS
Of the great mass of graduates
who have left the University during
the last few years, a large number
have become connected with some
business or another, many becoming experts in their particular field
of work. Naturally the proportion
of graduates who can be called to
mind at a moment's notice by a
few representative members of the
student body is very small compared to the total number who are
making names for themselves in
the business world, but the list will
at lease give some idea of the variety of occupations into which U.B.C.
graduates And a way.
TEACHING POPULAR
The teaching profession seems to
be the most popular, judging from
the numbers who have gone in for
it, particularly members of the
Musical Society. Betty Woolard is

WORK OF ALUMNI GROUP
HELPS ON UNIVERSITY
Branches Throughout B. C.
Keeps Grads Active
By D. M. OWEN
The Alumni Association, through the adoption of its
new constitution, has provided for a system of branches to
be organized in any place where there are a sufficient number of u!b.C. Alumni to make an active organization. An
Executive Council, composed of a General Executive, elected
at the Annual Meeting, and appointed representatives from
each organized branch- is the governing body of the Association. Through this Council each branch is kept in touch
with the activities of the other branches, as well as being
able to have its say in the orgahizaion and operation of the
Alumni Association as a whole.
This last year has been a signal one ln that some 20 branches have
been formed in many parts of the province, and the Dominion. Very
strong branches have been formed at New Westminster, Victoria, Trail,
Kelowna, Kamloops, Kimberley, Montreal, Toronto and Ottawa.
Other centres where there are groups formed but which as yet have
not a large membership are those at North Vancouver, Prince Rupert,
Penticton, Nelson, Cloverdale, Chilliwack and many others. The main
activities of the branches being of a social nature, supper meetings
are the most popular.
The main duties of a branch are to maintain and protect ln every
possible way the interests of the University. The University of British
Columbia needs now more than ever before the support of all intelligent people who are capable of appreciating Hs problems. Tbe Alumni
being for the most part an Intelligent group and being furthermore
personally acquainted with the problems of our Alma Mater are the
logical people to assume such a responsibility.
Our purpose then Is to have the Alumni organized on such a basis
that should any emergency arise ln which they could express their
opinion they would be in a position to do so. In the past the Alumni
have not been so well organized and any stand that they did take was
either untimely or of little avail.
Oar work Is not restricted, however, to emergencies, but is of great
benefit to the University in other ways. The growing popularity of the
Adult Extension Lectures throughout the Province has provided us with
another field in which to work. We hope to make it the job of each
particular Branch ot the Association to recommend and to advise on the
choice of any particular lecture topic, and/or lecturer ln their section
of the Province. In this way our organization can be ot invaluable
assistance we feel to the new Department of University Extension
Lectures.
The Brock Memorial Campaign is another example as to how our
Branch organization may function. As this campaign originated, however, in the middle of our organization, we were not as effective as we
can or will be in a year or so. The system does provide a medium for
contacting our graduates wherever they meet, however, and the fact
that such groups are organized and can be utilized upon call is a
valuable factor for the University.

Kelowna Alumni
Association Report
In what some people call the
"great hinterland" of British Columbia we have a branch of the Alumni Association. Those of us who
are fortunate enough to reside here
agree as to its greatness but not
to its "hlnterlandness." It is the
centre of civilization so far as good
apples, good weather and good fellowship are concerned. This particular group is called the Kelowna
Branch of the U.B.C. Alumni Association.
During the past year its activities
were guided by the following executive:
President, R. Spllsbury;  Vice-
President, Mrs. Ethelwyn Logle,
Treasurer,   Miss   Marlon   Miles,
Secretary, T. M. Chalmers.
This association feels distinctly
privileged and highly honored in
having  had  the  responsibility  of
looking after the local administration  of the  University   Extension
program.   At present our executive
is organizing the local details pertaining to this year's scheme,
In addition, it lent its weight and
vociferous argument to the Union
Library scheme. We feel a certain
amount of justifiable pride, therefore, in the fact that parts of the
Okanagan shall, in time, have a library system comparable with those
of some of the larger centres of
B. C.
We follow, with keen Interest, the
activities at U. B. C. and are watchful for opportunities  to advertise
the advantages of the University to
potential undergraduates. While
distance prevents us from being
with you ln person, we are certainly with you ln spirit. We hope your
Homecoming celebrations will be
highly successful.
While you, at the coast, have your
Homecoming ceremonies, we up
here also have our Reunion. It
Is held at Kelowna. This article
is written closely following this
year's "gathering of the clans." We
had an attendance of over 80. Prof.
Dilworth and Dr. Kaye Lamb, as
well as j. N. Burnett were in attendance. Sharing in the traditional U.B.C. spirit were alumni from
all over the Okanagan Valley, the
Kamloops area, Revelstoke and
parts of the West Kootenay.

Vancouver Alumni
"Any graduate of the University
of British Columbia who compiles
with the requirements for voting
membership in the Alumni Association of this University and who further resides or carries on business
in the City of Vancouver shall be
eligible for membership."
So reads the Membership clause
of the constitution of the Vancouver Branch of the Alumni Association, organized at a graduate meeting nearly a year ago, when T. E.
H. Ellis (Arts '23) was elected temporary chairman, and Dr. H. R. L.
Davis (Aggie "21) temporary secretary, to be appointed to those offices permanently last February,
along with Dr. William Ure (Sc.
'23) as vice-president, Miss Enid
Wyness (Arts '32) as treasurer, and
W. 0. Banfleld (Sc. '22), as hono
rary auditor.
To further the best interests of
the University of B. C. and of Its
Almuni Is the worthy object of this
new Branch of the mother organization, which already numbers
among its original members the
following well-known Varsity students of yesteryear: Evelyn Story
Lett, Eleanor Agnew, Jean Cameron Baynes, Phae Van Dusen, Sherwood Lett, Dr. O. Howell Harris,
Mark Collins, Paul N. Whitley, Norman Hacking, W. A. Madeley, 0. E.
Baynes, T. M. Little, C. P. Leckie
and Ivan R. Miller.
In keeping with the Association's
policy, the annual dues of the Vancouver Branch are very small and
prospective members are asked to
apply either to President Ellis, c/o
Messrs. Buell, Lawrence & Co., Pacific Building; Secretary Davis,
4106 West 10th Avenue, or to Treasurer Wyness, 3636 20th Avenue W.

SLUMMING
Unlike we of U.B.C. whose official recognition of the fact that
our city is a place of many parts
is confined to a windy, muscle-binding snake parade, McGill students
have decided to discover exactly
what are the component parts of
their home-town and have accordingly set out to investigate life in
the raw by making a tour of the
city, from bright lights to grimy
hovels, to get a bird's-eye view of
the whole works ... in short, to
probe its darkest corners and to
And out its virtues and vices. It
seems, however, that the idea is
budding hereabouts also.
From authoritative sources I have
it that one M.C. has discovered the
ideal starting point for such a thing
as this—the Silver Slipper, somewhere on Hastings East. Further,
it seems that the first experimental
tour has been such a success that
a group of serious-minded young
gentlemen of the campus have decided to get together on the sociological project. Whether the test
is to be objective or subjective we
have not yet learned.
The only thing wrong with this
idea is that the Mamas and Papas
might object. From latest reports
we learn that Manitoba has a student 14 years of age, another of 15
years, while Queen's has one also
14 years. From our files we learn
that U.B.C.'s babe is IB . . . My,
my, maybe sociological training
should start at home. Which is a
point in favor of gowns. Possibly
the flowing robes might do something to alter the external appearances and bring about a psychological change of life.
To the women go my deepest
sympathies. A dispatch from Manitoba tells of the exclusion of two
sweet young law students there
from the annual law banquet at
which a roaring game of tiddli-
winks and a ginger-ale drinking
contest of vast proportions.
But Canadian women have no
idea of the trials of their sex. According to Betty Taylor, McMaster
University's contribution to the
Olympic games, all women in Germany are forbidden to use make-up
and required to spend six months a
year in camp where she indulges
in "such manual labour as feeding
pigs . . . both animal and human."
Returning again to where we
started from, McGill, we And, early
this week, our vacuous bubble-like
echoes of the big, bad days of initiation crashed to atoms by the roar
of the thudering herds of Montreal
students engrossed in communism
and facism. We have on good
authority the statement of Dr. L.
C. Marsh that "McGill students are
decidedly not communistic. According to the professor, there are no
tendencies to either communism or
nationalism and no evidence of political bias.
Since Montreal must advertise,
we'll do likewise. In fact, we have.
The Saskatchewan Sheaf of October
9 carried a two-column three-deck
head in large type: "All Hell'
Breaks Loose When B. C. Freshmen Resist Initiation Rites." The
more conservative Manitoban carried a two-column, two-deck head:
"B. C. Freshmen Wage Vigorous
war on PROUD Sophmores." Between a freshmen hell and soph
pride our glorious Varaity begins
to assume proportions which can
only be enhanced by the wearing
of gowns.

Surrounded by the formal atmosphere of the Commodore, but most informal In nature, was the Sophomore
class party held on Wednesday evening.
Parties ranging ln size from four to thirty members gave
up their individual conversations and joined the general
festivities when Dudley Darling, alias Uncle Abner, directed
a hilarious Heel and Toe Polka. Establishing a precedent
for mixing of class members, the executive's idea of a medley
was received with enthusiasm by the dancers.
In charge of ths arrangements

FORMAL QOWN8
•
The gowns ot the dancers shoVred
a decided 18th century Influence and
were predominantly formal. Typi
cal ot this was an Elizabethan mod
el ot claret velvet, the upright col
lar ot which was ot cream patterned
lace, worn by Ann Carter. Her cor
sage was of roses.
Miriam Cosens chose powder
blue triple sheer, the tailored skirt
of which formed a slight train with
two broad ruffles. The neckline
was square, varied in the back by
a deep V-slit. Carrying out this
square line were coral flowers completely covering the shoulders.
Peggy Thompson wore an informal gown ot oriental red. The full
sleeves were slit and banded in
gold metallic which was carried out
in a heavy gold cord belt. The skirt
was of floor length and fitted.
One of the most distinctive gowns
of the evening was a red and blue
plaid taffeta. The full skirt was cut
on the Ann Oreenaway style and
the back was formed by two straps
crossed in the centre of the back.
Mrs. Gordon Shrum's dress was
a white tunic Jacket with leg o'
mutton sleeves over a black fitted
skirt.
MUSICAL'S FORMAL
The Marine Drive Golf Club will
be the scene ot next week's most

Co-Eds Enthusiastic
Over New Sport
Foggy weather provides no dampening of the enthusiasm   of   the
sprightly young co-eds when they
really want to go out on the archery  field.   Under the expert and
careful  guidance  of  Miss  Moore,
the girls are progressing rapidly
in this sport, which is to be featured as an Intra-mural next term.
As all the scores are tabulated
there is keen competition existing
among the feminine Robin Hoods,
the only trouble the girls have
experienced so far is slight injury  to their finger-tips.   This,
they hope, will pass with practice.
Intra murals Start
With Volleyball
Arts men definitely showed their
superiority over the men ot Science
in the game of volleyball on Wednesday noon when teams representing Arts '37 and '38 defeated the
teams of Science '37 and '38. Arts
'37 defeated Science '37 two games
to one, dropping an overtime thriller 16-14 in the first game but came
back strong to win the next two
16-3 and 15-10. Arts 38 coasted to
victory over Science '38 In consecutive games by scores of 15 10, 16-6
and 16-5.
Science '39 and '40 will try to
redeem the prestige lost by their
fellowmen when they tackle Arts
'39 and '40 on Friday noon. The
Intra-mural program for next week
will be volleyball on Wednesday
and basketball on Friday. Full particulars about these activities will
be announced later.

THE ADVERTISERS REPRESENTED IN THE UBYSSEY
make possible tbe size of your
student newspaper. They will
appreciate your patronage.
Launching into their first formal
debate Tuesday noon in Arts 105,
four members of the Literary Forum harangued skilfully on the subject, "Resolved that all freshmen
initiation should be banned from
the campus."
Mary Rendell, leader of the affirmative, made, in Dean Bollert's
estimation, three excellent points,
condemning initiation because of
the rowdy form it takes, its detrimental effect on the students them
selves, and its more far-reaching
effect on outside opinion. "U.B.C.
has as yet no endowments. We all
recognise the need for such endow
ments, but it is not likely that while
we create such unfavorable impressions downtown that public-spirited
citisens will in any way want to
support us."
Rosella Martindale, presenting
the case for the negative, argued
that initiation gave a very healthy
outlet for high spirits. She maintained that the group spirit was increased. "Freshmen," she claimed,
"become group conscious , rather
than self-conscious." Cynthia McLean, the second speaker for the
affirmative, attempted to show that
initiation was inappropriate on the
campus, and that it was a waste of
money and time.
Kay Farquhar, who was commended by Dean Bollert for her
"legal mind," seised upon the loophole in the wording of the resolution to point out that it was a question of "all" initiation being banned.
She then proceeded to melt the
hearts of the audience with the
argument that initiation if it were
properly organized would make
freshmen realize their low status
and would bridge the gap between
high school and University. Mary
Rendell ably answered in rebuttal
and secured the majority of the
votes of the house for the affirmative side.
Before the members adjourned
Kay Farquahar, president, announced the receipt of a letter
from the Women's Debating Union In California, who plan to
meet U.B.C. in January. Dean
Bollert, who announced herself
aa very pleased with the girls'
first venture, stated that she wae
quite willing to baek them against
the Callfornians.

Personal portraits are always nice Christmas presents, especially
when they are, in addition, graduation pictures. Well, it will be economical as well as thoughtful to send your relatives your grad photos pictured
by Allll.
Mr. Aber, as a special concession to you university students, has,
reduced his price for. Totem Pictures. The regular $25 per dozen size
which are 5 by 7 inches, will be sold fo you for $12 a dozen; the $15
per dozen size, which are 4 by 6 inches, are reduced to only $10 a
dozen. Other sizes, both larger and smaller, are similarly reduced. The
work will still be the regular Aber quality, which means the tops.

Fun buying a hat, isnt' it? MADAM RUNGI has hats as well as
gowns and it would be even better fun if you buy your hat there.
Small hats are essential with big fur collars. The little brown model
with the perky feather and the'clever top fucking which gives the new
high-look would give any coat a prouder look Perfect for tea dates is
the olive green felt beret with the flattering veil. Then there are the
sportier brimmd fur felts with lathr or lather trims which ar so
essential for campus wear.
To make sure your coa.t, dress and hat all match, why not buy them
all at Madam Runge's    You can't go wrong there.

The great Pub triangle which is now nearly a year old, still continues. Columnist and Totem editor battle half-heartedly for the affections of the fair lady. She, meanwhile, apparently spends her time

The Arts Ball is getting closer, isn't it, and there is the Musical
Society formal, the Senior Ball and the Science Class Party. Looks like
you will need a new pair of evening sandals with such a busy time ahead
RAE-SONS BUDGET SHOP upstairs from the mam floor on 644
Granville Street, is sponsoring silver sandals just now. There is "Jacha,"
an anklet strap, "Angela," with its thin strap and silver three-feather
trimming on the vamp and the slightly lower heeled "Siesta",with an
open toe and back strap. A trio designed to please the popular co-ed,
and all costing only $6.60 a pair.
If you prefer colored shoes, there are the satin and crepe sandals
with the Boulevard heels and side buckled straps. They tint perfectly
to any shade or may be worn in the original white. If you prefer, they
can also be obtained in black.
Be prepared, get your evening shoes at the Budget Shop now.

We don't know when we have seen a more fascinating collection
of handkerchiefs than that now shown, at the LINGERIE SHOP on South
Granville. Handkerchiefs make such acceptable presents,, and besides,
you probably need a few yourself, so why not go and look them over.
Ranging from 25c there are the imported bright squares to match any
color scheme or soft lace edged handkerchiefs. Particularly attractive
are the fine hand-drawn linen with the rolled edges. The big chiffon
squares would add to any evening ensemble.
Mrs. Paton also has on display a charming collection of flowers for
evening wear. Gardenias, so cool and perfect looking you cannot believe
they haven't just come off the ice. Or there are tbe big soft flowers
for more feminine trimmings, just the thing to brighten up last year's
dress and add to the smartness of your new gown.

You can't study all the time. Here is an idea to use up some of
your spare time Why not let the TAILORED WOMAN at 220? West
41st Avenue, teach you to make gloves. The cost will average $2.00 a
pair and less than ten hours work. The Tailored Woman can supply
you with a personal pattern and instructions. It will take only three
lessons to turn you into an expert glove maker. You can use the soft
washable chamois, pecary, capeskin, suede in any color, or the new duo-
tones which are so perfect for sports wear. All the skins are imported
from England. Think what an attractive Christmas present a pair of
hand-sewn gloves would make. They are a pleasant present to give
yourself, too.
The Wool Shop can teach you to knit all the new stitches with
their soft, imported wools. They can supply you with patterns and change
them to suit your own measurements. If you wish to be skilled in craftsmanship just pay a visit to 2207 West 41st.

Shorter hair curled up off the face and neck That is the coiffure
decreed for this season. Hard to achieve by one's self, isn't it? The
easiest solution is to let the experienced operators at the RUSSIAN
DUCHESS BEAUTY SALON at 768 Granville Street, do all the hard work.
They will cut and curl your hair according to the latest styles, which will
be modified to suit you If you want to look extra special beautiful for
the Senior Ball or the Arts-Aggie, why not phone Trinity 4727 and have
the Russian Duchess make you over?

History of
Mediaeval
Europe...
INTRODUCTION
The logical place to start a history of Mediaeval Europe seems to
be about 410 A.D. So we will not
start there.   Let us push on.
It is now 500 A.D., and very fine
weather for the time of year, too.
But there are invasions ... the
Alemanni, the Whatammanl, the
Fascisti, and other savage tribes
are cleaning up on what is left of
the Roman Empire j baths and other evidences of civilisation are vanishing, and home life resembles
generally a Scienceman's Idea of
a quiet Saturday night.
CHAPTER I.
About this time the futile system
was born. It continued tor some
time, and Is still used ln most of
our Canadian Universities. The essence of the futile system was tbe
vassal and the villein. (Not to be
contused with vassaline.) The
vassal had to pay homage (a corruption of the French Frontage) to
his suierain, or patrol leader.
Anyone who did thla three times
became an Eagle Scout and could
put his initials In any square.
Besides this, there were Troubadours, who fulfilled much the same
function as the modern iceman, and
serfs. The serfs never bathed,
shaved or anything like that. This
waa a good thing because they
hadn't any soap anyway.
The main occupation ot the lords
was eating and drinking. Besides
this they had sackage, pillage, forfeiture, escheat, and the right of
the first night.
It was their duty to see that they
intermarried so that there were at
least seven people who could claim
escheated ln a card game.
(Hext week: More about the futile system. The rise of the Huns,
each flef when Its owner died, or
guns, and the monks.)
"M-8"
I listened, cold and limp.
I knew it would come—this the
inevitable, that I had awaited so
long now. CountlesB others had
suffered before me—now must I ln
turn go through this agony, tortured in every limb, gasping for
breath, struggling . . . gasping . . .
any crying yet again for mercy.
There was no one to undergo
the ordeal with me ... I laid no
blame on my friend — little good
would it have done me In my
plight! It was all the result of my
own doggedness and folly. But I
shuddered involuntarily, and a cold
perspiration broke out over me.
Slowly, oh so slowly, the fatal hour
approached. ...
I pictured ln my Imagination how
it would come . . , hard, rough
voices heard first, pre-em ptory and
merciless commands, my weak staggering — pushed toward the fatal
machine. All quiet, save for the
low creaking of the cruel engine
of torture. A first jerk—a strain
—a wrench—no—no—not that! not
that! . . .
Ten o'clock came.
The engine approaches, brought
forward by a vlllanous looking carle
clad in blue. In my apprehension,
oddly enough, I noticed distractedly
his hardened, coarse, dispassionate
features. With the poise that only
doomed creatures have, I mechanically go to it: I am pushed down
into a leather support. A final order: a clashing of the gears of the
machine — slowly the first strain
comes. ...
I brace myself,—unconsciously—
although I know the end is near.
... At least I can die bravely. Now
the pain increases—an arm yields
to the strain ... It does not move
now . . . and I' notice with an unnatural, meticulous concern that
the leather scores my back. Another ghastly stretch ... a wrench
... the right arm. . .
I fall Into a merciful delirium.
No longer do I breathe—I feel nothing. One fearful last twist—and
my ordeal approaches its end. I
see lights ahead, my arms jolt back
Into their accustomed place, and
with a Bomnolent grumble, the engine Btops, slowing old "M-8" down.
Trusty vehicle! She has once more
racked my frame, scarred by body
and seared my soul!
Gingerly I pick myself up in
pieces from my seat in the bus,
walk down the aisle, and get out,
till tomorrow morning a free man
. . , free ... the rain in my face
... the wind ... ah, supper. . . .

MUCKATORIAL
Greetings, my little ones. Shrdlu Is again to the
fore. With the first Muck Page of the season, it seems
suitable to explain to the Frosh just what Muck Is.
Answer! Figure it out for yourselves.) All Muckator-
ials should end with a Joke. So we are going to end
this one right noy. Here is the joke (we hope).
P.S.—It is not original!
On an Allied transport, during the war years, was
a regiment. In the regiment was a well-known magician. Finally, after much urging, he consented to give
the boys a show.
So, on the appointed evening, they assembled,
and he went to work. He pulled coins out of the air,
burned dollar bills and brought them back, made fifty-
cent pieces out of phone slugs, and finally brought a
large stack of bills into being in the centre of a bare
table.
He then went on to cards. He brought them out
of the air, changed the spots on them, did everything.
Following this, he produced about a hundred silk
handkerchiefs from apparently nowhere.
Then, after a long pause, he held up his hand. He
spoke.
"I will now count three. I will wave my magic
wand> and say the old magic word: "Blastit." And you
shall see what you shall see."
So he counted three, waved his magic want and
said: "filastit." And, at that exact instant the ship
struck a mine, and was blown into a million pieces.
Three days later, a survivor was picked up. It
was very sad. All he would say was: "Of all the damn
silly tricks I ever saw!"
ARE WE MICE OR ARE WE MEN
IMITATIONS OF IMMORTALITY
ONE academic institution that needs clearing up
Is the custom of beering up.
Under the existing circumstances
The thirsty scholar cannot quit beering when he fancies,
Because, for example, if he sits down at a table with eight people
He Is almost certain not to leave till his head feels like a steeple,
Due to the fact that somebody will shout "Nine up!' at the waiter
Until It comes to be your turn sooner or later.
The result Is, In this case, that you drink nine, or a multiple,
Which can be quite a few for one who prefers to tipple.
Eighteen beers, of course, are still conceivable,
And even twenty-seven not quite unbelievable,
But thirty-six are quite a few to polish
Off, being only four short of what Engineers claim to demolish.
Only who ever saw an Engineer with four dollars?
The only escape from the round-by-round evil at present
Is to watt until you are feeling pleasant
And then begin to yell and shout
And If the waiter can hear you, he may throw you out.
Pretending to pass out, however, is hardly cricket,
Besides If your friends are my friends they will probably go through
your pockets even to your last street-car ticket.
The Calendar

Campus Mystery
So you want to go to Varsity?
Why, Ood only knows, but there
you are. Thousands do It every
year. Allrlght. You get a little
green book called the calendar.
And then . . .
Well It is really very simple.
Take any paragraph la the calendar. They are all something like
this:
"Any student or students taking
or proposing to take, whether or
not he has taken it, but it will not
be accepted unless he has taken
beginners German. (SEE Para. 2,
page 120, for further regulations on
this.)"
CONDENSED RULES
What? You don't understand It?
Well, we anticipated that. So, after
years of study, the following condensed rules deduced from the calendar have been obtained:
1. No student may take more
than fifteen units.
2. If you are a freshman, you will

PASS 8Y8TIM
If you are one ot these bopeful
souls who plan to go to Seattle
next month to see the Homecoming
football game, let me offer you a
few words of advice.
Don't try to get Into the game
with a student's pass unless you
are an expert forger; for the pass
system as it exists at that University is absolutely foolproof.
From what I have been able to
learn the system works  In the
following manner. At the beginning of the  year each  student
pays five dollars to the A.S.U.W.
and receives In return a card entitling him to go to any student
funotlon — academic,   aooial    or
athletic without extra eost.
To get into any ot these events,
be has first to present the card and
then sign his name in the presence
ot an official exactly as it appears
on the card. If the signatures are
not similar the person presenting
the card is immediately brought
before student officials and questioned. The card is then cancelled
and the offender is fined five dollars to pay for a new one.

BARIER POLL
On the theory that football forecasting is just so much eyewash,
sports editor Mike Bird of the
"Washington Daily" has evolved
the novel idea of a weekly "Barber
Poll."
Each week he publishes the average of the individual Coast conference football score predictions
of "Murry," "Jack." "Joseph,"
"Hank," "Chuck," "Larry," "Joe,"
"Paul," "Bill" and "Scotty," ten of
the more prominent barbers of the
University district.
Last week the average predicted
score was Washington 15, California 6. The actual score was 13-0.
Bird claims to date that they are
only four points off, out of the season's total of sixty-two points-
matter of only one touchdown.

Add Strength to
Grads
Senior Soccermen meet ex-Varsity on mutual home territory this
Saturday at 2.30 in one of the most
interesting games of the league.
The place is Kerrisdale Park, and
the event is real news, as this is
the first time that Blue and Gold
meets Oold and Blue.
UNKNOWN POWER
Dave Todd, Stan Greenwood, and
Don Atwater, former Thunderblrd-
men, will be on the "Ex" squad. So
faV, these Grads have been, playing
better soccer than our oWn boys,
but U. B. C. is as yet an unknown
power, for Its strength has not met
a fair test up to the present. The
Senior lineup will be the same as
usual, and it is hoped that it will
turn In a real game.
JUNIORS
U.B.C. Juniors have a game also,
but league red tape has kept the
opponents and the battle-ground a
deep dark secret. Manager Norm
Free states that last week's loss
was due to several of the forward
line being unable to find the field,
with the result that he had no
strong men to press the play. He
also states that such will not be
the case again, and that this team
is due to go back on its winning
streak.
COLLEGIANS WORRIED BY
JONES* BOYS 6'2" AVERAGE
GRANDSTAND
PROMISED
According to a statement received
from Ted Wilkinson Tuesday, Varsity may have a brand new grandstand built for them at the site of
the present "Stadium," by a group
of sport-minded Vancouver businessmen.
However, there is a condition attached, to the effect that students
show enough interest to turn out
800 strong to the Saturday afternoon rugby games.
Montgomery's Senior
Team to Play Province
While shadow-like forms flit to
and fro through the ever-present
misty fog on the eerie, and rowdy
Hallowe'en night, Inter-city basketball players will skip most of the
early proceedings and devote all
their excess energy to flicking, and
swishing at the old iron hoop in the
opening tilts of the '36 season in
the V.A.C. gym.
Two Junior teams will hook up in
the Initial battle at 7 o'clock, with
MunroB and Ryerson, a duo of new
outfits clashing in the Senior A
premier performance at 8, and the
elongated champion Province-ites
tackling the U.B.C. entry in the feature game at 9.
WORRIED
Battling Chuck Jones' loose-
jointed "skyscrapers" in their debut, the Blue and Gold melon tossers are Just a wee bit worried over
the outcome ot the said battle. Although they're not exactly all midgets, the average height of 6 foot
2 Inches boasted by the newsies will
be quite an advantage in rebound
snatches, overhead passes and looping long shots.
But the Alma Mammy-ites still
can't see themselves dropping this
tilt. They figure a combination of
brains, experience, and speed is
more effective in piling up points
than brawn and height.
Whether or not they have this
combination working smoothly will
be proven this Saturday.
Coach Doc Montgomery has been
slaving since the start of Varsity
to get the boys ln shape, and If you
can take his word for It, he's sue
ceeded. Early morning practices
with everything from plain, ordinary shooting at the start, to a grueling 2-mile trek around the gym to
finish the cassaba-heavers off is the
reason for the top condition of all
the lads.
LINEUP
Although it's still doubtful, here's
the possible starting lineup: "Bugs"
Bardsley and Rann Matthison, forwards; "Joe" Pringle, centre; "Det"
Detwiller, "Franny" Mitchell,
guards. Subs will include "midget
star,' Doug Gross, Kyle Berry,
Frank Turner, forwards; Bob Hayman, centre, and "Hank" Hudson,
a guard.
Onoe more:   MUNROS vs. RYERSON   at   8;   PROVINCE   vs.
VARSITY at 9.
SWAN
Here is Bill Swan, able basket-
bailer and rugger, who has returned to Varsity after a year's
absence. Swan has deserted
basketball for rugby till after
Christmas.
Natators Show Strength
In Inter-City Gala
Varsity swimmers showed a little
of their strength Wednesday night
in the city championship gala at
Crystal Pool when, with only two
entries, they managed to take first
place in one event and make a fairly creditable showing ln another.
Pauline Banford, comely young
freshette from New Westminster,
showed the way to a starry field
In the hundred yard breaststroke,
when she defeated Lynda Adams
and Pat O'Hara, well-known local
performers, to  capture the city
title.
GOOD FORM
Varsity's entry In the men's med
ley relay showed good form, even
if they did not make a place against
such stellar teams as those representing the Vancouver A.S.C. and
Crystal A.A.
Wash-Varsity
Ice Series
According to word received by
Maury Lambert, lee hockey prexy,
competition will be reeumed thla

loe squad.
In preparation for the series
the Thunderbird rubber-retrievers
will start work-outs Saturday
morning from 9 to 10, with practices starting tomorrow.
LUCAS LEADS
FIELD WITH
16 Points
McPHEE FAILS
TO ENTER
Once more the upperclass track
stars reign supreme in the spiked*
shoe sport on the campus. The
aggregation of sophs, juniors, seniors, wearers of the "Varsity" colours, defeated the newcomers
46-41 in the traditional Frosh-
Varsity meet.
In the two-day battle, galloping
"Luke" Lucas loped home in front
of the field, with 16 points, a single
tally more than footballer Gordie
Heron garnered through three
firsts. Wins in the 880 and mile
put smooth-striding Vance Mc-
comber on top of the Freshmen
heap.
One disappointment which slightly dampened the enthusiasm of
some 200 onlookers on Tuesday was
the non-entry of Howie McPhee in
the sprints. Howie decided to skip
the trackmen's premier performance because of a back injury sustained in ye old game of ruggah.
Jim Brown, last year's High
School Intermediate champion was
the only casualty of the two-day

a leg muscle forcing him to call it
quits for the day, and probably for
a couple of weeks.

Grads and Undergrads
Battle Again Saturday
Back to full strength again with the return of McPhee and
Swan, the original Varsity "wonder team" will face the Occasionals at Brockton Point Saturday afternoon. Thus the undefeated
leaders of the league will be pitted against the never-winning but
always-trying cellarers.
VARSITY DAY AT THE OVAL
It will be a Varsity day at the Oval, the second team playing
the first game at 2.00 p.m., and the fourth operating on the Lower
Brockton field.
The Thunderbird heroes should have little trouble overcoming
the Occasionals, but even so, an interesting combat should result,
as the Grads are always subject to berserker streaks in which they
topple outfits scheduled to walk  over them.
LINE-UPS
Line-ups for all four teams for the day are as follows:
First team:  Fullback, Bird; three-quarters, Leggatt, Lumsden,
McPhee, Wilson; five-eighths, Willoughby; half, Carey; Forwards,
Andrews,  Pyle,   McCammon,   Upward,   Harmer,   Maguire,   Swan,
Watson.
Second team: Fullback, Whitelaw; three-quarters, Andrews,
College, Spohn, Trussel; five-eighths, Mackie; half, Whittle; forwards, Robertson, Hobson, Housser, Billings, Madeley, Gross, Pyle,
Harrison.
Third team, playing Nippons at Douglas Park: Fullback, Mc-
Lagan; three-quarters, Day-Smith, Butters, Robertson; five-eighths,
Gieb; half, Griffin; forwards, E. Robertson, J. Campbell, Roberts,
Cull, Drummond, Knox, Lafon, Tupper.
Fourth team: Fullback, Tindale; three-quarters, Ker, Drabble,
Gray, Maitland; five-eighths, Wallace; half, Allen; forwards, Ross,
Robertson, Kincaid, Mimms, Cruise, Wilson, Randall, Ainley, Field.

By KAY MANN
Varsity Stadium, some Saturday
afternoon.
The crowd gathers — we plough
our way through line of Impatient
people, each one sporting his own
colors. Excitement is in the air,
no one wants to miss the kick-off.
You can hear the band playing,
"The Blue and White.' Breathless
we arrive at the student section-
already full. Higher and higher we
climb, crawl over people craning
their necks toward the far end, and
flop Into our seats just as a shout
goes up—"They're on." The Big
Blue Team run in, cheer leaders
spring into action, a pause while
they hold up their hands, — then,
"Toronto, Toronto, Toronto Varsity"—louder swells the cry from
a thousand throats. In answer from
the other end rings out—"What's
the Matter with Old McQtU?"
THI CROWD ROARS
The whistle blows, an expectant
hush falls over the tense throng.
"Good kick"—the ball sails well for-
ward, scrimmage follows scrimmage, the flght ever getting more
fierce. "Push it over, Varsity"—
only ten yards to go and the second
down. But the line holds and they
regain the ball as the whistle blows
half-time.
Immediately, the visiting band
strikes up, and has Us turn on the
field. Then the Varsity drums begin to beat, the formation march
commences. UP and down they
proudly parade, Instruments gleaming in the sunlight. Turning down-
field ln the TJ. of T. formation they
break into, "Old Toronto, Mother
Ever Dear," which Is taken up by
grads and frosh alike.
FAR INTO THE NIGHT
The second half begins — the
score ia still even. Hoarsely the
wail goes up—"Come on, Varsity."
A few minutes to go, Varaity gets
the ball, starts down field, there's
no stopping them now, on and on
until — "Touchdown" — the roar
of victory. The jubilant crowd
surges onto the field and streams
after the band ln Us triumphal
march through the streets. Night,
falls, but the sounds of revelry
swell louder as victors rejoice and
defeated drown their sorrows.
There is no reason why the V. B.
C. cannot make one game its major sport and get the whole student
body behind It. Nothing can build up
up university as quickly and as ef-
effectively as an Intercollegiate
game. Everyone gets up and shouts
himself hoarse whether he has ever
attended a lecture or knows the
meaning of "dear old Alma Mater."
If carloads of students can "Follow the Band" to Montreal or
Kingston, why cannot we do the
same to, for instance, Seattle?
Canadian football differs only in a
few minor points from American
and a compromise might be reached. It has been said we haven't
the material. It does take time to
train a first-rate team, but it can
be done. If we can turn out an excellent English rugby team we can
do the same for Canadian football.
Admittedly, the former has finer
points as a game, but so tar it has
been unable to draw the crowds.
WOULD MAKE MONEY
If the public could be interested
it would soon become a money-making proposition; students form only
about half the crowd in the Bast.
A well-organized drive would raise
money for a good stadium; tea
dances after the game could be held
in the Union Building that we hope
to see erected next year, while fraternities or the Alumni could sponsor an evening dance. Build up a
University team and pep meetings
would soon be things ot the past.
If intercollegiate relations were established for one sport, others
would follow naturally. Train a
good team, erect a stadium to show
it off, and then watch Varsity.
SENIORS, ATTENTION!
Fees of one dollar must be paid
by Monday if you want a Class
Party on November Bth. There will
be a member of the executive at
the foot of the Caf stairs today and
Monday at noon. All other executive members have receipt books,
and will be delighted to accept your
shekels.
WHEN MAKING PURCHASES, be nonchalant. Say
you saw it in THE UBYSSEY.

PROGRAMME NOTES
Prelude "From Holberg's Time."
This prelude is in the style of
the 17th century. Holberg was the
founder of Danish literature aud
one of the greatest Danish authors'.
His comedies are classic. The period and light mood in which they
were written are admirably reflected in his music.
Moonlight Sonata—Bethoven.
The sonata was not named "The
Monlight" by Beethoven, but was
so named from a legend that grew
up around the piece. The legend
was that Beethoven, while out walking, heard his compositions being
played by someone. He discovered
a blind girl at the piano and was
so moved by pity and sympathy
that he threw open the shutters of
the window to let the moonlight
stream in upon him and improvised
the whole of the sonata on the spot

Modern Stuff
To Be Lecture
Topic
Professor Dilworth Well
Qualified to Speak
On Music
On Saturday evening at 8.15 in
the Auditorium of the University,
will be delivered the third of the
series of lectures organized by the
Vancouver Institute. The speaker
is Professor Ira Dilworth, M.A., of
the Department of English, and his
subject, "This Modern Stuff"—A
Study of Contemporary Music.
CONTRAST OLDER WORKS
The lecture will be an exposition
of the ideas and the technique
governing the compositions of such
composers as Debussey, Stravinskl,
Delius, and Ravel, with some comments on the works of these with
those of the older composers, and
demonstrate the progression to*
wards harmonic complication that
makes many modern musical compositions difficult either to comprehend, or to enjoy. The lecturer will
illustrate these changes on the
blackboard, and at tha piano, and
also by phonograph records, representing the modern and ultra-modern schools.
The chair will be taken at 8.16 by
the Institute President, Mr. George
E. Winter, who has this week returned from Dallas, Texas.
The B, C. Electric Railway provides buses at Sasamat Street,
which go directly to the University,
and wait there until the close of
the lecture. All Institute lectures
are free to the public.
Murray Goes Fir Since
Hit B.C. Days
William Gladstone Murray, newly
appointed manager of the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation, got his
start at McOUl College in Vancouver back in 1908. Mr. Murray, who
has been feted considerably at McGill since hia appointment, was
cutting a wide swath in college affairs tn Vancouver some 28 years
ago. Before radios were heard of
and when Marconi was wearing his
first pair of long pants, here is what
the College Argus Annual was saying about Mr. Murray:
"A rhapsody In words, a dictionary In distress, un unsophisticated devotee of ths ooamologi-
cal system of arohltachonlc methodology. Used to be the good
boy of the sohool ,but lately has
been Indulging In amateur theatricals, and other forms of dissipation."
Specifically, he was Literary Edl-
tor of the College Annual, Representative Debater for the school,
Member of the Class Banquet Com-
EMPIRE TOPIC
OF FORUM
DEBATE
"Resolved, that in the event of
Great Britain going to war, Canada
should withdraw from the Empire,"
will be the topic engaging the attention of the Forum next Tuesday
night.
Tom Ladner, who, though with
no experience as an active debater,
is a good speaker with many possibilities, will lead the case for the
affirmative. Les Allen, the Forum
vice-president and exchange student
at Toronto two years ago, will open
the negative. Though not active in
the Forum last year, Allen can be
relied on for a unique handling of
his side.
GLENDON TO SPEAK
Everyone is welcome and a large
turnout is desired, as several items
of policy will be'brought up for
discussion.
Mr. J. F. Glendon, of Technocracy
Inc., will speak under the auspices
of the Forum on November 10. Mr.
Glendon has the reputation of a
good speaker and can be relied on
to handle his subject in a more informative way than did Howard
Scott last year. With plans for a
Technocracy Club under way, this
meeting should be of great interest.
mlttee, Class Reporter, on the Matric Relay Team, and a 1st Lieu
tenant in the Cadet Corps.
The present members of U.B.C.
are proud of the success of Mr.
Murray as an alumnae and are not
surprised that one should reach
great executive heights who could
address his editor-in-chief in this
fashion:
"Dear Sir: Sedulously avoid polysyllabic profundity or didactic amplification and finally avoid the use
of double entendres, fatuitous ambiguity, prerlent jocosity, opaque
facetlousness and pestiferous profanity—either obscure or apparent.
Yours truly,
W. O. E.   Murray."

Sask. S.C.M,,In Attempt
To Save Boy From Death
UNIVERSITY OF SASKATCHEWAN, October 28.—In an effort to
save Frank Anderson, 16-year-old
murderer, from death on the gallows, the Student Christian Movement, with the unanimous approval
of the Student Representative
Council are to present to the students a petition asking for more lenient measures in dealing with the
youth.
Last summer Prank Anderson
was   arrested   on   a   vagrancy
eharge and plaeed In Moosomln
jail.   While attempting to eseape
he was eurprlsed by the guard
whom he hit with a potato-masher.   On aeelng the guard fall he
lost his fear and remained to give
aid, only to discover that the
guard had died from the blew. He
was found guilty of murder and
senteneed to death by hanging.
As   the   students   collect   their
"Sheafs" on Friday morning they
will be asked to sign the petition.
The S.C.M. believe that not'only
should he receive leniency because
he is a minor, but also that some
thought should be given to his environment up to this time.    "Society," says the S. C. M., "is not accepting  the  responsibility for its
members, if it can do no more than
eliminate a youth of sixteen, who
through  the Influence of adverse
circumstances over which he had
no control,  became anti-social."
The petition to be presented to
the students is as follows: We, the
undersigned, as students of the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, do respectfully submit the
following petition—that the death
sentence of one Frank Anderson,
now in Regina Jail, be retracted
tn favor of more lenient measures,
because we are of the opinion that
capital punishment is not justifiable
ln the case of minors."

A committee has been appointed
to secure the signatures of those
members of the Senior Class who
are willing to wear tbe much-debated gowns.
NOVELTY QOINO
John Logan, chairman of a temporary committee appointed to investigate the matter, in presenting
this report Bald at a meeting held
last Tuesday noon, "The novelty of
the idea of wearing gowns is beginning to disappear. We have passed
the stage of mere Idle enthusiasm
and something definite must be
done or the whole matter dropped."
"There are four courses open to
us," he continued, "First, the wearing of gowns might be made compulsory by a special motion of the
Student Council. Second, the same
result might be obtained by a similar motion passed by the Senate.
Third, the whole matter might be
left to the personal wishes of the
Seniors individually. Fourth, voluntary signatures ol those willing to
wear gowns might be obtained."
WILL C08T $476
The price to be paid per gown
was then discussed. "Gowns of the
best quality English cloth, guaranteed not to run or fade, would cost
about $5.50 each, If ordered individually," stated Mr. Home, prior
to the meeting. "If however, the
Senior Class can promise an order
of not less than 200 gowns, this
price can be reduced to $4.75 per
gown."
Wilson McDuffee, president of
Arts '37, assured the class that
since Arts '38 had already voted ln
favor of gowns, the Seniors would
have little difficulty in disposing of
the articles at the end of the year
for a reasonable sum, if they wished
to do so. "The Book Exchange,"
he said, "has agreed to undertake
the actual buying and selling for
the usual 10 per cent commission."
Various opinions were voiced by
other members of the class. Bill
Dayton, president of Science '37,
announced that "the Senior members of the Science faculty are vigorously opposed to gowns, the chief
objection being the uselessness or
even nuisance of such apparel during laboratory hours."
A show of hands disclosed the
fact that 39 of those present were
in favor and 30 against the wearing of gowns. The time limit for
the compilation of a Hat of volunteers was set at November 5th, the
date of the Class Party.

By MONTY FOTHER1NGHAM
Amusing and highly interesting
experiences of a summer spent in
Germany, including festivities at
Heidleberg'and an annual pageant
in the Black Forest, were related
by Miss Joyce Hallamore in an interview with the Ubyssey.
Miss Hallamore, of the department of Modern Languages, spent
almost five months in the "Fatherland," leaving Vancouver as soon
as the exams were over, and return*
ing only in time for the opening of
Varsity.
UNIVERSITY ANNIVERSARY
Considerable time was spent in
research work in the libraries at
Munich and Heidleberg by Miss
Hallamore, who later travelled
through Germany visiting cathedrals in some of the smaller towns
and stopping off at a picturesque
village in the Black Forest.
Most colorful and outstanding of
a host of joyful memories were
those of the Heidlberg festivities
commemorating the Ave hundred
and fiftieth anniversary of the famous university. Delegates from
all parts of the world, numbering
at least 500, were in attendance. Besides chancellors and representatives of all the German universities, there were visitors from Sweden, Denmark, Czecho-Slovakia, and
a great number from Japan. Although not a delegate herself, Miss
Hallamore was present at two of
the functions.
COLORFUL OPENING
"The first of these was really
very colorful. It was the official
opening of the celebrations when all
the delegates marched in their academic dress to the University
grounds. Here poles had been
placed in a line and national flags
of the delegates were raised to the
accompaniment of military music."
The next night an official reception in the form of a banquet and
dance was tendered by the government in the old castle. Not being
a delegate, Miss Hallamore could
not attend, but along with other
spectators, she enjoyed herself
standing in the streets watching
guests arrive.
Most impressive of all the Heidleberg celebrations, which lasted four
days, was the illumination of the
castle by torches, a special performance for visiters.
LIT BY TORCHES
"The castle stands half-way on a
hillside, against a black background
of forests. The guests were as
sembled on the opposite bank of
the river, and sharp at nine o'clock
a gun was fired. Simultaneously
the castle was lit up by torches.
These torches, which were placed
around the ruined part of the castle,
lasted about ten minutes and then
gradually faded out. It was really
effective, giving the impression of
the old castle being on fire."
The Germans have a definite flair
for the impressive and spectacular,
in the opinion of Miss Hallamore.
They also staged at Heidleberg a
"Splendiferous" array of fireworks
on the river bank, displaying in
illuminated outline the Crest of the
University and its dates, 1386-1936.
Entirely separate from the University festivities was a monstrous
Nazi celebration opening a huge
new amphitheatre built at the famous University town.
PROPAGANDA
"This celebration," Miss Hallamore stated, "was definitely propaganda and was an atternpt to revive an old German custom of
marking the winter and summer
solstice with bonfires. Leading from
the back of the large stone stage,
around the sides, were stairs and
down these marched the German
delegates and officials, carrying
Nazi flags. Behind them came the
conscription corps which had been
working on the project, carrying
highly polished spades. Then, just
as the torch was tossed on the bonfire built on the stage, the workers
raised their gleaming spades, which
caught and reflected the first faint
glimmerings of the fire. Bugles
then were sounded to the four
corners of the heavens and were
answered back."
Leaving Heidleberg, Miss Hallamore travelled south to the Black
Forest and stayed off at a delightful village called Lenkkirch. Very
few visitors come here, and in some
ways the place was rather primitive. The first night was the worse
though, she laughed, as she related
how, staying at the village inn, she
had been put in a room directly
above the cow barn. To the*accompaniment of fjentle moos, Miss Hallamore drifted off to slumber, only
to wake bright nnd early when the
cows were being taken out to pasture.
RURAL DRAMATICS
In Southern Germany, the peasants are greatly interested in dramatics and produce some surprisingly good pageants, both historical
and religious. One of these was
presented by the inhabitants of
Lenzkirch during Miss Hallamore's
stay there. It was historical in
theme, representing the deliverance by a local hero of that part
of Germany from the rule of Napoleon.
"Practically all the villagers took
part, and they seemed to be having
a marvellous time. The most amusing thing, though, was that they
even put on the battles.
The side of the hill where the
action took place was covered with
little skirmishes, and every once in
a while an excited messenger would
come riding over the hill on a fat
lumbering farm horse. Off to one
side the villagers were standing in
a group, anxiously waiting to hear
whether they were to be rescued
or not." '
This performance which lasted
about three hours, had to be presented on a Sunday, as amongst the
principle properties were dismantled hayricks and weary farm
horses. Taking the place of the
hayrick on the cart carriage, were
crude cannon, which the peasants
pulled hither and thither over the
field.
"I don't know what anybody
coming on to the village suddenly
would have thought was taking
place. There was a terrific din due
to all the shooting and noise going
on."
REFRESHMENT
The village having been won and
the peasants rescued, all repaired
to the licensed premises to refresh
themselves. Then about ten or
eleven o'clock, the men, still dressed
as French or Austrian soldiers, and
the women in their gaily-hued peasant costumes, returned home, some
sadly overcome by the innkeeper's
hospitality.
From this delightful spot, Miss
Hallamore travleled next to Berch-
tesgaden, in Southeastern Germany,
where is situated Adolph Hitler's
summer home, and from there went
to Munich.
Here she spent about a month
working in the Library, and taking
in a number of operas and musical
events honoring Mozart and Wagner.
The final ten days were spent on
her way to Bremen, visiting cathedrals in the towns and cities.
HEAVILY TAXED
For an ordinary tourist to get
any definite conception of Hitler's
influence on Germany is very difficult, Miss Hallamore found. Even
the Germans themselves have only
a very hazy conception of the trend
of affairs.
"Outside of the fact that they
know they are being heavily taxed,
the majority of the people have no
idea at all, or only very little idea
of what is taking place. Either they
are extremely pro-Nazi, very ardent
Nationalists, or else they are rather
skeptical and questioning, though
not actually opposed to Hitler. They
do feel that Hitler offers them their
only chance of escape from conditions of post-war Germany."
On the surface things are extremely prosperous. There is a
tremendous building program —
huge apartment blocks for the poor,
reconditioning of historical buildings, and building of wonderful
state highways, along which there
is no cross traffic, it being routed
either over or under the highway.
In Southern Germany a large
number of buildings are also being
erected which are rumored as being
new armories.
Separate Faculty
Investigation
Is Closed
Results of Ubyssey
Survey Are
Given
In the investigation recently conducted by the Ubyssey into a periodical agitation among science students for formation of a separate
science faculty, a diversity ot attitudes has been uncovered, ranging
from unconditional enthusiasm to
deprecation. The bacteriology department produced a strong reaction in favor of separation, closely
followed by chemistry, while the
physics department did not appear
particularly Interested.
ADVANTAGES LISTED
The advantages listed by various
students were fundamentally the
same. They felt that science students received a more specialized
training than artsmen, a fact not
shown in the degree of B.A., and
that a technical course should qualify them for a technical degree.
They also declared that science
students should be given credit
for doing much more work than
those majoring In classics, for Instance.
The main advantage described
was the added prestige students
with a degree of B.Sc. would have
when trying to land Jobs in local
Industries.
WOULD COST TOO MUCH
Several, however, felt that it was
the university granting a degree
rather than the degree itself that
counted ln the long run. Others
believed it would take U. B. C. too
long to establish the reputation for
its B.Sc. that Its B.A. enjoys at
present.
The question of cost of a new
faculty Was raised as an important
factor, though many objectors believed it would be feasible to grant
a separate degree to science students in the same manner as the degree of BacHelor of Commerce Is
granted at present. Others felt
there would be too much confusion
Involved ln trying to place the dividing line between arts and science subjects.
Many constructive suggestions
were made In an effort to eliminate
difficulties. These included the
changing of the Faculty of Applied
Science to the Faculty of Engineering and the formation of a separate
science faculty. Another suggestion was to make the new degree
retroactive to avoid discrimination
against graduates of former years.
A third was to give chemistry students an option of a B.A. or B.Sc
when they graduated.
Varsity Newt Service
Is Extended By Papers
As a result of correspondence
during the summer between editors
of The Ubyssey, The Gateway (Al-
berta), The Manitoban (Manitoba)
and The Sheaf (Saskatchewan) the
Western Intercollegiate Press Union, successful news venture of last
year, will be continued and extended. U. B. C. editors tried it out
during the session 1935-6 by periodic news dispatches with Alberta
and the other university papers.
This year the work has been organized and under the direction of
the Exchange Editor weekly news
dispatches are sent to and received
from the three other western uni-
versities.
An exchange of news photos, biographic material and other information has also been arranged
between all four western universities calculated to improve the value
nf W.I.P.U. news. Several dispatches have already been published in the Ubyssey, together
with other information and material offered by this service.
