Relay Race
Buckley Cuts Lead in
Spectacular Fashion
Boosting their position •'- tve interclass sports to first place,     .^cultural
runners  turned  in  a  decisive  victory
in the annual Inter-class Relay Race
last   Wednesday.    Running   in   splendid form, they held the lead from the
end of the second lap to the finishing
tape.    They were headed only in the
first   lap,  where   they  were   down  to
fifth place.   Johnstone of Arts '25 led
the field in this lap, giving his teammate, Arkley, a seventy-five yard lead
on the next man.    It was in this lap
that Buckley for Agric. covered himself  with   glory   by   cutting   down   a
tremendous lead, passing four of the
best   men   of   the   other   years   and
handing a three-inch lead to the next
man.    It   was   without   question,   the I
greatest run of the day, particularly
so as this lap is considerably over a
mile in length.    Buckley himself was
heard later to say, very modestly, in
referring to the enormous lead he cut
down: "Oh, it was nothing.    I had a
mile and a half to do it in!"    Well,
we'll say he did it, anyway.
The next man, Hughie Russell, of
high-jump fame, put the race on ice
for the Aggies with a remarkable run.
He had the hard stretch before the
Industrial School that has quite a
steep hill in it. Despite the fact, he
tore up this hill with all cylinders
sparking perfectly; and handed the
next man, Pye, a good hundred yard
lead. Pye maintained this throughout his lap, and Eby, the fifth man
for Aggies, although just out of a
sick bed, carried on splendidly to
Fulton. With Fulton and Hope, two
long legged huskies for the last two
laps, first place seemed almost
certain. They did not count on
Graham of Sc. '23, who was "almost"
the dark-horse of the last lap. Sc.
'23 had been tagging along about one
hundred yards to the rear of Agric.
Graham, their last hope, had apparently set out to cut this lead down,
and he started out at a regular sprint
pace. About half way through, he
found the going too strenuous, and
after a very game effort, he collapsed.
Considerable credit must be given
Graham for his effort though, for he
had cut down nearly half of Hope's
hundred yard lead. With Sc. '23 out
of it, Aggies had nothing to fear, and
Hope broke the tape with considerably
over a hundred yards to spare. Next
in line came Sc. '24, with Sc. '25 and
Arts '25 filling in the third and fourth
places respectively.
The winners' time was fairly fast,
but not near enough the record even
to shake it. The fastest time ever
made over the course was 36 mins.
15 sees. This year, the winner's time
was 37 mins. 21 sees.
All arrangements for the race were
perfectly carried  out,  thanks  to   the

Pi esidentialCandidates
State Platforms
The election of the President of the
Alma Mater Society will take place
next Monday, March 13. The candidates for the position this year are
"Ab." Richards, Agric. '23 and "Reg."
Hodson, Sc. '23. Both men have
taken a very active part in student
activities and have shown themselves
to be very capable leaders.
When interviewed by the "Ubyssey"
as to their respective platforms the
candidates had the following to  say:
"Ab" Richards stated that it would
be his policy to have a more equitable
distribution of the work which falls
to the Students' Council. Also it will
be his policy to carry out student
government to the fullest extent. He
believes in stricter discipline and
feels that some disciplinary measures
should be taken to regulate the noise
in the halls and reading room. He
will support, if elected, the formation
of a Students' Court, the extension of
the Community Housing scheme for
out-of-town students; strict adherence to the "point" system; advice to
men students regarding courses
through Deans of Faculties addressing special meetings of students.
Finally it will be his policy to foster
a closer relation between the Council
and the individual members of the
student body.
The second candidate, "Reg." Hodson stated that he would endeavor, if
elected, to bring home to the students a sense of their maturity, and
to provide as far as possible that all
major activities receive the support
they  deserve.
He also pointed out that in the
past, two or three officers have been
left the responsibility of managing
student affairs, but that he would attempt to remedy this by favoring a
policy that would initiate first, second
and third year men into the business
of student government. He also suggested that each organization might

Reed College
Debaters Here
On Friday night the season's last
inter-collegiate debate will take place
in King Edward High School Auditorium at 8.15 p.m.
Jack Grant '24 and C. W. Hodgson
'24 will oppose Gibson Rowles and
Marion Dickey of Reid College, Portland. Our men will support the affirmative of the resolution "Resolved
that the Allied Nations in the Great
War should cancel all external government war debts."
The support of every student will
help the debaters materially in repeating the Washington victory. The
Students' section will be upstairs.
Before the debate begins Alan Hurst
will lead some college songs, and the
Varsity orchestra will give some selections.
We offer our profoundest gratitude
to the Players Club for their extreme
thoughtfulness in giving so many of
us an opportunity Monday noon to
enjoy the balmy temperature of a
Vancouver March. We admire also
the clever manner in. which they kept
us in hopeful anticipation from moment to moment, as one placates a
donkey with a dangling carrot. After
this proof of their ability to hold an
audience on the draughty campus we
have no doubt of their capability ta
do likewise on the Avenue stage. Even
at this University of ours we have
seldom witnessed such a display of
Auditorium Scene of
Championship Bouts
The tournament staged on Friday
night last by the Boxing Club was
the first event of its kind that has
taken place in the College. Considerable interest1 was' aroused and some
two hundred spectators witnessed the
contests in the auditorium.
The Arts '25 orchestra furnished
music prior to the first bout and during the intervals, forming a. much
appreciated addition to the programme. George Lipsey, Sc. '24,
president of the club, in a short
speech, outlined the objects which it
was hoped to attain, chief among
them being the establishment of
inter-collegiate contests in boxing,
and spoke warmly of the work accomplished by Joe Nestman, the instructor. He then announced the
first contest between T. Louden, Arts
'25, and N. Stewart, Arts '25, in the.
123-132 lbs.  class. Louden, the  victor,
showed a marked superiority over his
opponent in all departments but Stewart hung ort gamely until the end.
In the next bout 'Slingerland started
off strongly but after the first round
was unable to stand up against the
hard-hitting and better condition of"
Dudley who eventually won easily.
Hanna of Sc. '23 and F. M. Wallace of Arts '23 were the contestants
in the 150-160 lbs. class. Wallace
started well but Hanna pulled up evert
and an extra round was necessary in
which the decision went to the Science man. The bout was a particularly sporting one on both sides but
condition was a trifle lacking.
In the 115-123 lb. class, Ellis, Arts
'23, mingled with: T. Stewart, Arts
'24. The bout was the feature of the
evening and one of the most interesting. A good match in such a lightweight as this always produces plenty
of speed and action. Both the men-
concerned were on their toes from the
beginning and kept the pace going-
in a fine open fight, remarkably free
from clinches until the final gong.
Ellis, who had a > slight edge all the
way, was declared the winner.
Hislop, Arts ; '24, and, Phillips of
Agriculture, met in the heaviest
weight of the evening, 160-170 lbs.
Hislop has a long reach and considerable knowledge of the game, and until
the end of the first round Phillips
had considerable difficulty in making
his blows tell. From then on the contest was close and many lusty blows
were exchanged, Phillips going after
his opponent with a will. Both
showed considerable signs of punishment. Phillips was awarded the decision.
The last and best bout of the evening was between Campbell of Arts
'23 and McLachlan, a partial student,
and it was for the lightweight cham-

Yes, the beginning of the end is in
sight. The examinations time table
is up, the common room idlers are
frequenting the library at all hours,
the usual "flock" of student activities
are engaging our attention and every
one is working at the high pressure
mark. Amidst all this scuffle and
scurry let us pause a moment and
give some attention to the responsibility which each student assumes as
an elector in this democratic student-
governing  University.
Let us elect representatives who
will ensure success in the coming year
for our University. Let us make the
1922-23 Council the best yet. To do
this each and every student must be
alive to the possibilities of his fellow-
students. Two men only were nominated for the Presidential campaign.
The field certainly does not suffer
from overcrowding. Surely there are
more than two men in the University
who are worthy of consideration for
this important post. Make the elections interesting by bringing forward
more candidates.
Nominations for the positions of
Secretary and Treasurer will be received up to March 12.
Nominations for the positions of
president to the following undergraduate societies will be received up
to and including March 15: W. U. S.;
A. M. U. S.; S. M. U. S.; A. U. S.;
March 19 is the last day of nomination for the positions of Literary and
Scientific representative, Men's Athletic representative and Women's
Athletic representative. The important post of Marshal will be filled
from the nominations handed in on
March 28.
Start the ball rolling by thinking
it over and handing in the name of
some person who will give to the utmost to make 1922-23 the , biggest,
best, and most successful year the
college has yet seen. And when you
have nominated your candidate, be
his publicity agent, scout up an army
of supporters and boost for him. The
interest which you show in your candidate and the enthusiasm with which
you support him will increase his
sense of responsibility and responsibility makes the man.

elect a whip to consult with the Marshal in matters of obtaining support.
In conclusion, Mr. Hodson stated,
he stood for a unified, independent
attitude on behalf of the Students'
Council, when backed by the support
of the student body. Student control
must be more firmly organized and
function regardless of outside organizations.

Graham of Sc. '23 made the great

the top notch milers in the college,

An enthusiastic rehearsal of the
spring play, "Mr. Pim Passes By,"
was carried out last Saturday afternoon in the auditorium when all the
acts were successfully staged. The
play is a high English comedy and
its success depends mainly upon dialogue and characterization. The dia-
lougue is witty throughout and considering the detailed conversations is
a severe test for the cast. The plot
is chiefly built around the introduction of nervous, absent-minded Mr.
Pim (Neil McCallum) into the country home of George Marden (Jack
Clyne), an English gentleman.
Throughout the day this man
breezes in and out, and through his
forgetful memory in telling facts, he
manages to interrupt the peace of its
inhabitants most effectively, and from
these complexities the comedy is
made up.
The members of the cast, when
asked to comment upon the play were
naturally rather reticent. They are
all, however, enthusiastic about its
prospects and are putting forth their
best efforts to acquire the tone of
voice and confidence of poise. Regarding the probable reception of the play,
Prof. Wood, the Director, had the following to say: "'Mr. Pim Passes By'
is undoubtedly one of the most difficult plays ever attempted by the
Players Club, but the results to date
are sufficiently gratifying to assure a
good performance." The interpretation given by the leading man, Mr.
Wood said, ranks with that of Mr.
Lord of last year as the best sustained male role in the Club's history.
The announcement is made that the
dates of the Vancouver performance
were not arbitrary, but that when the
Business Manager solicited dates for
the play at the beginning of the term,
he found the Avenue Theatre booked
up to March 23. Consequently it so
happened that the Club, through no
design of its own, is forced to put on
its first production in New Westminster.
The Business Manager, Mr. Hunter,
wishes it announced that Thursday
night will be the big Varsity night
and the club wishes as many students
as possible to secure their tickets for
Thursday night in order that the play
may be given a grand send-off. Further it is announced that all second
balcony seats are being reserved this
year—and it is expected that the attendance there will be larger than
usual. Box seats this year are $1.50
—instead of $1.25 as quoted before.
These may be obtained for any performance from the business manager.
the last block with a long vigorous
stride. He will be a man to watch
on future mile events. Arts '23
took fifth place, Arts '22 sixth, Arts
'24 seventh, while to Sc. '22 went
the honor of being first at the other
end of the line.

On Saturday the soccer team visited North Vancouver and administered
a 2-0 defeat to the local team. It
was an ideal day and the game had
lots of pep throughout but no further
eulogy can be made of the game as
a whole. Both goals were scored in
the first half. The first was the result of a bit of clever dribbling and
a well placed shot by Cameron. The
second was a very spectacular shot
by Jackson, and is termed the sphinx
play, and was effected by that worthy
standing stock still and letting McLeod make a carom into the goal
from his brawny knees. Mosher
played a fine game, stopping many
fast ones and nearly scoring on several occasions. Manning, who turned
out for the first time this year,
played a neat and aggressive game
and undoubtedly was the pick of the
team Saturday. It would be hard to
pick the worst from the rest, the
players being all about equally erratic. McLeod instituted the "fake
pass." This was a spectacular device whereby the opposing halfback
was lured into thinking that the ball
was to be passed to the wing.
There are still a few reserved seats
available for the Dual Swimming
Meet. These can be secured from
Celmer Ross, Arts '25. The price of
the reserved seats is 50 cents each
(i.e. one buck per couple). If you
want to get a comfortable view of the
meet, obtain your seats immediately,
as, at the time of writing there are
just exactly seventeen left. Otherwise, you will have to resort to the
unreserved "seats," price 35 cents.

On Saturday, March 4, at Normal
gym the Varsity Inter, basketers
trimmed the St. Marks 31-20. The
St. Marks, leaders of the league, playing their usual rough game, found
the snappy combination and accurate
shooting of the Varsity team too
much for them. Arkley and Cooper
did the heavy scoring for Varsity
while Gill at guard broke up what
little combination St. Marks showed.

In the Normal Gym the Senior B
boys team went down to defeat at
the hands of the Senior A Ladies
team. Although the boys were somewhat handicapped by having to wear
hobble skirts they put up a good fight
in trying to keep up their former
good name. But they were doomed.
They were unable to reach their basket after many bold attempts, the
brilliant play of the girls dazzling
them. During the first half the boys
were not too bad but in the second
they were completely whitewashed.
The girls showed the B's where the
basket was and treated several of the
B team a little too roughly (ask
Penny and Turnbull.) Final score
was somewhere aruond 27-18.
On Saturday the U. B. C. women
met the Victoria Womens' Grass
Hockey team at Brockton Point, 1.15.
Weather conditions were ideal and
although the ground was a little
heavy everything predicted the good
game which was to follow.
In the first half the play was nearly
even, the ball being in the centre-
field the greater part of the time. A
swift run, however, up to the U. B. C.
goal resulted in a goal for Victoria.
The score at the end of the first half
was 1-0 in favor of the Victoria ladies.
The second half opened with Varsity playing on the defensive. The
ball was in the Varsity half most of
this period, and great credit is due to
the U. B. C. defense that more goals
were not made by the Victoria ladies.
The whistle blew with a score of 4-0
in favor of Victoria.

pionship of the University. Both boys
were in good shape and a fine battle
was put up. Campbell started after
his opponent from the first gong, and
as the latter was only too willing,
there was not a moment of stalling
throughout. Though Campbell was
strong, willing and aggressive, Mc-
Lachlan showed clearly that he is a
boxer of considerable ability and was
entitled to the verdict. This last bout
was indeed a most creditable performance and would have been considered
so before any athletic club in town.
After the bouts were over Joe
Nestman was presented with a fountain pen on behalf of the Boxing Club.
W. Jones and E. Bailey were the
judges while Archie Macdonald officiated as referee. His cheerful bearing tended to put the contestants at
their ease during the trying time of
waiting which precedes the first bell.
Russell of Agriculture was the timekeeper. Lipsey announced the fights
and people behind the scenes spoke of
the great amount of hard work he put
in to make the evening a success.
Weather permitting, Arts '24 will
refresh its jaded spirits with draughts
of the pure Capilano ozone on Saturday afternoon, March 18. This hike
will follow the lines of the similar
event held last session, and promises
to prove even more successful.
After their success over Arts '23,
Arts '24 is eagerly anticipating the
final interclass debate, when they will
meet Agriculture in an endeavor to
wrest from them the debating shield.
Mr. Morgan and Mr. Yonemura will
have the honor of representing '24.

take place seemed to prevail, a vote
could be taken and a definite conclusion reached. If it prohibited them,
and was considered unfair, again a
vote could be taken, and everybody
would know exactly where he stood.
But under existing conditions, neither
the opponents nor the supporters of
such a question have any clear foundation for their arguments, and they
cannot come to grips and fight out
the dispute in the open.
Editor for the Week A.   G.  Bruun
A favorite topic for debating societies is the question: Which system of
government is preferable, that of
Great Britain or that of the United
States. The one has grown gradually
through a long period of time, until
it is a complex and sometimes incoherent organism, difficult to understand, but on the whole adequate in
covering every eventuality that may
arise. The other consists of a single
definite constitution, in which are
condensed the main essentials of administration, and which can be altered only occasionally and with difficulty. The fact that this topic is debatable proves that neither system
has an outstanding superiority—in
other words, neither approximates
the ideal.
The discerning reader may have
guessed that these remarks are supposed to have some application to the
college microcosm. And if the same
reader has at any time studied the
constitution and bylaws of the Alma
Mater Society, as printed in the
Handbook, pages 9 to 22, he should
have some inkling of what we mean
to imply. The Students' Council, as
the governing body in charge of student affairs, is naturally expected to
arbitrate all questions which come
under its authority. And the conclusion logically would be that they
should have some hard and fast rule
by which each of these problems
could be decided. But much time is
lost and some friction occurs owing
to the fact that this is not the case.
Out of many instances, let us take
two which are of some importance
at the moment. One is the matter of
class parties being held outside the
University. The other is the matter
of public functions, for which a
charge is made, being held within
the University. Neither of these
things are rendered illicit by fundamental moral principles. Nor are
they covered by any definite ruling in
the constitution. Yet there is an impression abroad that these events are
somehow "illegal" and the result is
an unhealthy feeling of law-breaking
on the part of those organizing and
those attending the functions. The
questions could be much more easily

some quarters—that they should not
"Pish! He's a good fellow and
'twill all be well." Omar Khayam
had no thought of college elections
when he wrote those familiar old
words. But they express very clearly
the attitude adopted by scores of
students toward the selection of their
officials. Things may be well when
candidates elected on such a basis
come to control affairs; or things
may not be well. The risk of the
latter case occurring is at least fairly
In any event the recommendation
of being a "Good Fellow" is, or should
be, absolutely inadequate for any
candidate for office. We want candidates with various qualities of leadership, with ability, energy, stability,
aggressiveness, strong personality
and tact. Further we want men and
women whose former records are
good and who have a certain standing and prestige amongst the students. These qualities are all more or
less necessary and are all stressed at
election time, even in furthering the
campaigns of "Good Fellows." But
something else that our candidates
ought to have is IDEAS, original or
otherwise, ideas on all matters of
student affairs and policy that have
to do with their prospective office.
They should express these ideas
clearly and unreservedly, formulating
them into a definite policy or platform, which, insofar as possible, they
should feel themselves in duty bound
to carry out if elected.
The kind of administration of student affairs we get next session depends absolutely upon the result of
our vote. Let us be very chary of
giving our support to candidates who
are merely "Good Fellows." Let us
insist rather upon their being of a
certain standing, capable and alert,
and, above all, upon them presenting
their ideas to us in definite clear-cut
form, as a concrete policy, for us to
judge them by. Then we will be able
to vote with our eyes open, as intel- l
ligently as possible.
"Humer, Mable, is at a low ebb in :
the Colige of My Yuth."
The ability, the faculty, or the
habit of looking at the bright side of
things or seeing the funny side of the
situation is all that keeps humanity
sane. During the war this "sense of
humor" kept the troops in the line
and in times of peace it is the first
requisite for safety.
In college, we are met with two
equally obnoxious types—the man
who takes himself so seriously that
he is his own worst enemy and a
burden to himself and everyone else
—and the man who never looks at
anything seriously. This latter is a
much rarer specimen but (I am told)
is still to be met. What is needed is
to find the middle ground, the most
happy medium. But this really gets
us  nowhere.
The difficulty from the press point
of view is to find that which will
strike the reader as funny, as humorous, as witty, and thus maintain a
proper balance.
The state of mind of the reader is
what determines the humor of any
amount of so called humorous matter, hence the difficulty. There are
various types of stereotyped jokes
corresponding to various situations.
There is the "mother-in-law"—"the
prohibition story"—the "sentimental
(?) situation," such as: He, Shall
we hug the shore? She, Why the
shore? These types and many others
appear daily in all papers and periodicals and are frequently labelled
"Dead." But they are not dead to
all who read them. If the situation
is yours the joke is yours. If you
cannot appreciate the situation the
joke is dead, stale. The fault (except in very exceptional circumstances) lies with the reader and not
with  the story.
The humor of anything depends on
its applicability to the situation and
its spontaniety. . .
Two years ago the University of
British Columbia began a Summer
School for teachers. 'Its purpose was
to help teachers in service to obtain
the first grade certificate, and to give
them assistance in the professional
part of their-work through courses in
educational theory and practice.
Through attendance in the summers
of 1920 and 1921 a considerable number of teachers have been assisted
towards the improvement of their
professional  status.
It is felt, however, that something
more should be done, and so beginning with the coming summer, the
University will give credit towards
the B. A. degree to properly matriculated students who attend the classes
and pass the examinations. Courses
will be offered in all the required subjects of the first two years, and will
be so arranged that the ordinary
student can cover the winter's work
in a subject by taking two summer
courses and using the intervening
period for study.
Students registered in the winter
session will not be allowed for the
present to attend the ensuing Summer Session, with a view of making
advance credit. They will, however,
be allowed to attend in order to prepare for the fall supplemental examinations.
It is hoped that a considerable
number of teachers and others will be
able to avail themselves of this opportunity to obtain, by summer study,
a substantial degree of credit toward
the B. A. degree. Full details will
be given shortly.

Editor  Ubyssey:
Dear Sir,—I regard the letters of criticism
that have been appearing in your columns as
healthful signs for our University. Although
the writers are radical in their respective
views all, however, seem united in their quest
for real college spirit.
Few of us have a true notion of what college spirit is, the freshman least of all. In
the_ first place, the initiation was too weak
to inspire in him any reverence for the upper
years. Then the speeches urging attendance
at Varsity functions were so strong as to
make him feel that the following of this advice made a college man of him. Otherwise
he was forced to the conclusions of friend
"Utopius" that this manufactured pep was
all rot, and for him it was rot since he had
not yet realized the academic spirit which is
the fount of that world famous college pep.
It is the academic spirit that distinguishes
the college man. He studies with concentration like a man. He is studious and delights
in the depth of his work. Like Alexander of
old he welcomes new worlds to conquer. Then
he re-acts with the most violent of sports,
with the most senseless of yells. In fact he
loves to make a glorious fool of himself and
to let the world know it. This rah-rah spirit
is a natural result. It can not be acquired
by itself. All attempts to reproduce it on
the stage have failed. Witness, "Two Minutes
To  Go,"  and  "Brown of Harvard."
As I see it, Mr. Editor, such is the significance of college pep and also the reason
Freshies have such difficulty in appreciating
it.    They try to ACT the part of college men.
The remedy lies with the student body.
Anyone who boasts of home-study neglected
or laments the hard lot of the scholar should
be emphatically ordered to "cut the Prep-
school stuff." Children should be excluded
from our  library.
If we fail to maintain this spirit, and with
the   passing  of   our  returned men  the  danger
I is   real,  we  must  face  questionings  as  to  tile
I advisability of  student  self-government.
Yours  for U.  B.  C.
! P.   B.   SAPIENTIA.
Editor  Ubyssey:
Dear Sir,—I was much interested to read
what I take to be a semi-official statement
of the attitude of our student officials, as
expressed in your editorial column last week.
The plaintive desire to be appreciated which
was attributed to our office holders, and the
heartless manner in which, according to the
editorial, we withhold that "adulation" for
which they pine, struck me as rather ludicrous.
It was intimated that these office holders
receive nothing in return for their services to
the student body; but to my mind there is
one very considerable attraction pertaining to
their positions. I refer to the opportunity
for practical experience in administrative
affairs which  a student office offers.
With regard to the main point of this editorial—the necessity for credits for extra
curriculum work—I have nothing to say. But
I do repeat that the opportunity to be identified with the societies or activities in which
they are interested, should, and I am convinced does, constitute a satisfactory reward
for 'the members of our various executives;
and this view is borne out by the fact that
there is usually little difficulty in filling the
Hoping there are others who adhere to this
opinion,  I  am,  dear Mr. Editor,
Yours very sincerely,
Now that attention is no longer
focused on Princess Mary's wedding
interest has centered on the jollifications and high doings coming off on
Friday, March 17. The great muck-
a-mucks are expected to attend en
masse, for the liveliest social of the
decade is prognosticated. Syncopated
musical numbers will be rendered by
colored gentlemen and a few novelty
stunts have been arranged. Alluring
maidens will refresh the revelers with
the choicest fruits and beverages. The
Sigma Delta Kappa will be the merry
hosts. Everybody in the ship invited.

Many important matters relating
to the constitution of the Alma Mater
Society were discussed at the joint
meeting of the representatives of
faculty and Students' Council held on
Feb. 28. The object of the meeting
was the frank discussion of student
problems and the coming together of
faculty and student opinion on matters affecting university policy in
order that friction might be reduced
to a minimum.
One of the important questions
brought up, was the scheme for an
Injuries Trust Fund. The question
was raised whether this "Fund" was
to be added as an amendment to the
constitution or was to be operated
directly under control of the Students' Council. Mr. Whitley explained
that the Students' Council wished the
"Fund" added as an amendment to
the constitution—and as the amendment has been accepted by the Faculty Committee it will now be commissioned to the senate for final ratification. The object of the fund is to
compensate members of the Alma
Mater Society for medical expenses
incurred as a result of injuries received whilst participating in student
activites. The cases for compensaton
are to be recommended to the Students' Council after consideration by
the major organization which controls the activity in which the injuries were received. The Students'
Council are to decide on the eligibility
of the student concerned for such
compensation as they shall deem sufficient, taking into consideration the
circumstances of the particular case.
The amount of compensation is to
be based on actual medical expenses
incurred by the student, while the
Students' Council are to be entitled
to control the choice of doctor and
place of treatment as they see fit.
The fund is to be started by twenty
per cent, of all moneys accruing to
the A. M. S. being reserved for the
Injuries Trust Fund until such time
as the fund shall reach the amount
of five hundred dollars. Reservations
afterwards will be made whenever
the amount falls below five hundred
Another matter of considerable interest was the question of admission
charges for functions with outside
talent. The question advanced was
whether such charges should be made
and whether the precedent of the
Musical Society in bringing in outside talent should be recognized. As
pointed out by Mr. Banfield this matter had been under consideration of
the Students' Council for weeks and
their consent was given with the idea
of fostering a musical taste in the
University. Miss Maclnnes was
strongly in favor of such meetings
and stated that in her opinion it was
a commendable thing on the part of
the Musical Society and that it would
be a decided loss to take from the
student the use of the auditorium for
such outside concerts. After some
discussion it was finally decided that
the President should refer the question to the  Board of Governors.
Much discussion was also entered
into over the use of the University
crest in connection with undergraduate functions held outside the University. These outside parties, it was
stated, are to be recognized as official
and as such must submit a report.
Thus the Students' Council will be
able to exercise the necessary check
over such functions. In connection
wtih the admission fee to the Boxing
tournament it was explained that the
expenses of this tournament had not
been provided for in the budget and
that an admission fee was necessary
in order that the tournament might
be  held.    This  was  considered  satis-

The annual Spring concert will be
held in the ball room of the Vancouver
Hotel, on Wednesday next, March 15,
when the society composed of both
Glee Clubs and orchestra will be assisted by Mr. J. D. A. Tripp, Mrs.
Coleman and Miss Jessie Adam.
The programme of the Glee Clubs
contains such members as Dvorak's
"Humousque" by the Women's Glee;
"A Baby's Feet," the poem by A. C.
Swinburne, harmonized by Lloyd;
"Where Are You Going, My Pretty
Maid" with a modern setting; "They
Kissed I Saw Them Do It" by the
Men's Glee Club; "For Empire and
For King" the major number of the
Christmas programme that was so
well received, will be repeated by request. The orchestral part of the
programme will be very well balanced, consisting of numbers from
Greig and Frimle.
The hard work and earnest endeavors of the whole society and of the
conductor, Miss Morris, should ensure
a large attendance of students at this
function. There is not the slightest
doubt that this concert will surpass
all previous efforts of the society and
it is the duty and privilege of all
students to attend and bring their
The admission will be $1.00 but the
price is very moderate considering
both the selections from our own societies and those of the three well-
known artists assisting.
Mr. Tripp has not appeared in a
public recital in Vancouver for sometime, except in concert work with
his advanced pupils, and he will undoubtedly give a very creditable performance.
Miss Adams' recent successes in
"The Mikado" as well as her frequent
appearances in connection with the
Musical Society, has established her
reputation for excellent lyric soprano
Mrs. Coleman was associated with
University musical matters in the
East before coming to B. C. and her
work before Christmas at Christ
Church was  very  much  appreciated.
Altogether a wonderful array of
talent will be presented, of which
everybody should take advantage.
Tickets maybe obtained from any
member of the society or at Walter
F. Evans.

George Meadows, former member
of Arts '18, passed away at the home
of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. A.
Meadows, 8076 Heather street, on
Saturday evening, March 4. Although
most of us knew of his serious illness caused by the effect of being
gassed while serving with the 46th
Battalion, yet the news of his death
came as a great shock to his many
friends, as he had been making a
plucky fight ever since his return
home from the front.
George was a native son, being born
in Vancouver on April 26, 1898, and
attended the Model School, passing
his entrance at the age of twelve. He
continued his studies at King Edward
High School. In June, 1913, he matriculated and became a student of
U. B. C. He enlisted with the 196th
but was later transferred to the 46th
Battalion. It was while serving with
the latter that he was wounded and
gassed in the battle of the Aveant-
Drocourt Switch line in Sept., 1918.
His death has caused genuine sorrow among a large circle of young
people. He is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Meadows,
a sister, Mrs. B. C. Harvey, and two
brothers, Stanley, who is vice-principal of the Florence Nightingale
School, and Lyman of Arts '24.
The sympathy of the Alma Mater
is extended to his brother, Lyman,
and to the other members of the
On Sunday afternoon, March 5,
Miss Mary Tisdall, one of Varsity's
most valued undergraduates, died at
her home in the West End. Mary
had been ill for several weeks and her
condition was known to be critical,
nevertheless her death came as a
great shock to her friends who had
hoped for her recovery up to the last.
Before coming to Varsity, Mary attended Lord Roberts Public School
and later King George High. Although only eighteen, she, along with
her sister Margaret, was in the Sophomore years of Arts, where she was
very popular with her classmates.
She was a conscientious student as
well as an active participant in undergraduate activities and was looking forward to completing her course
in Chemistry. Her loss is one which
will be felt deeply throughout the
University and our heartfelt sympathy is extended to the bereaved

That's old stuff, eh! but she says,

Advisor of Women, Miss Bollert, has
recently returned from the Annual
Conference of the Deans of Women
of the Universities and Colleges of
the United States. At this Conference there were present three hundred Deans of Universities from California to New York, together with
three specially invited guests from
The address covered a wide range
of topics. One subject, which occupied an entire morning and which was
especially interesting to Miss Bollert,
was "The Construction of University
Buildings." Leading architects and
several Deans of Women contributed
papers, illustrated by lantern-slides.
The Conference devoted another
morning to a discussion of the vital
problem of "Vocations and Vocational* Guidance in Universities." The
discussion revealed the fact that
many Universities now have special
vocational directors who devote their
whole time to lecturing on the subject of "Vocations" and to giving individual guidance to students. On a
third special occasion, at a dinner at
which the Conference discussed the
relation of the American Deans of
Women to other organizations, Miss
Bollert, acting as representative of
the Federation of Canadian Women's
Clubs, read a paper on the work of
this organization.
One of the most interesting features of Miss Bollert's stay in Chicago
was a visit to the "Ida Noyes Hall,"
the recreational building for women
at the University of Chicago. This
magnificent building, Tudor in architecture and in furnishings, is said to
be the finest building on the continent dedicated to the use of women
students. Miss Bollert found it intensely stimulating to meet the three
women who are at the head of the
various activities of this House, and
to learn from them of the large part
which it plays in the life of the students of the University.
On her return journey, the Dean
addressed the University Women's
Club in Toronto and the Canadian
Women's Club in Regina.
Although we have heard very little
of the Men's Lit. this session, it has
been carrying on its work faithfully
and effectively. Through its regular
debates and through the Student
Parliament it gives practice in Public
Speaking to a large number of men;
and for this reason, it deserves the
hearty support of every student.
At the debate held oh Thursday,
March 2, Arts '23 met Arts '24 in a
discussion of the subject, "Resolved
that the closed-shop is in the best interests of the community." Mr.
Goodwin and Mr. J. S. Burton of Arts
'24 brought forward a strong argument for the affirmative. The closed-
shop does away with the grave social
injustice which exists when the capitalist class has a vast preponderance
of power over the laboring class. It
makes for successful collective bargaining, the best means of regulating
labor. And it is desirable for the
laborer because it raises his economic
and social status; for the employer
because it secures greater efficiency
of labor, increases the output, and
raises the standard of work; and for
the consumer because it gives him
guaranteed  goods.
Mr. Shaw and Mr. Mclntyre of
Arts '23, speaking for the negative,
maintained that the closed shop was
disadvantageous to both employer
and employee. In practice it limits
the disciplinary power of the employer, protects shiftless and inefficient workmen, engenders antagonism between capital and labor, and
causes unfair competition among employers. Universally applied, this
system would result in restraining
trade, in robbing individual workmen
and employers of freedom of contract,
in weaning the allegiance of the
workers from the State to the union,
and finally in giving labor an unfair
monopoly   of   power.
As a result of the judges' decision
in favor of the affirmative, Arts '24
will, in the course of the next few
weeks, meet Agriculture in the Debate for the Shield.

and the method of applying for such
This week D. H. Rae spoke on "Ore
Concentration at Surf Inlet." He described the treatment of the ore from
the mine to the shipping bins, giving
a short account of the different processes involved. The speaker showed
considerable knowledge of his subject. C. Jones then gave an informative talk on Precise Levelling, telling
of its organization in Canada, pointing out the difference between this
type of levelling and Dumpy levelling,
and giving a brief outline of the corrections and calculations necessary.
Fungi are of great economic importance. Many of them are valued
as food for man and other animals,
while many others are studied on account of the harm they do to other
plants. The latter group comes definitely within the field of the plant
pathologist but the former is' not
necessarily  excluded therefrom.
On Thursday evening, Mr. J. W.
Eastham, Provincial Plant Pathologist and Lecturer on Plant Pathology
in the University, will give the Vancouver Institute lecture, his subject
being "Fungi: Their Mode of Life
and Importance to Man." The lecture
is under the auspices of the Vancouver Natural History Society.

THE S. C. M.
At the regular meeting of the
Student Christian Movement study
group (men's section), a very interesting discussion arose out of a well-
appreciated talk by G. Coope of Arts
'22, Mr. Coope launched several
frendly criticisms of the attitudes
and methods adopted by certain sections of the religious world today and
offered some constructive suggestions as to the S. C. M. among our
students here. He drew the attention
of the meeting to the apparent lack
of attraction it held toward the student body and suggested that religion
properly presented in the student
world  would mean  its restoration to
factory      under    the    arrangements
whereby such fees are only permitted
by the Council in cases of necessity.
The  more  serious  question of the
relation of Students' Council to faculty and undergraduate body in respect to authority, discipline and college  spirit  next  received  the consideration of the meeting.    The lack of
power  of  the   Students'   Council  for
the   maintenance    of    discipline    was
fully   explained   and   specific   cases
were cited of dances which had been
held during the week  by various societies in the University auditorium.
It was the idea of the Faculty to lend
support to Students' Council to exercise control over these meetings.    All
were agreed that something ought to
be done to make the Students realize
the  situation   themselves.    President
Klinck expressed the  opinion of th«
meeting   when   he   stated   that   the
rights and limitations of the student
body should be advanced at the first
general meeting of the A. M. S. early
in the term.    He further stated that
the  student body should know definitely their rights and limitations and
have a clear impression of what their
conduct around the University should
be.    Paul Whitley advanced the view
that there should be some machinery
for enforcing discipline and mentioned that a  Students'  Court had been
under the consideration of the Students' Council.   A Students' Court was
proposed   last   year—but   so   far   the
A. M. S. has not taken action in the
matter.    It was suggested that a constitution   for    this    court    might    be
drawn  up  in  the   summer   and   presented   to   next   year's   council.     The
meeting adjourned with the assurance
of  the   Faculty  representatives    that
they would  support  the  A.  M.  S.  in
any action relating to the formation
of a Students' Court.
as few people know much about this
subject. Commencing with a description of the chief types of fish
caught here on the coast, the speaker
proceeded to deal more especially
with the salmon, giving an account of
its habits, the methods used in salmon-fishing, and the operation of a
cannery. Government attempts at
replenishing the supply of salmon
were outlined. Heber Jones followed
with a talk on the Geological Survey
in the Queen Charlotte Islands on
which he had been last summer. The
object of the work was largely to' get
fossils, and he gave a brief description of the geological formations
found. To assist those who would like
to get jobs with these parties this
summer,   the   speaker   outlined     the
those present, that there has been
some misconception as to the aims of
the S. C. M., and that properly understood it seeks to foster no dogma, but
to be a fraternity of students and
promote that spirit of honest enquiry
and free discussion which is of dominant interest in the student mind.
The meeting conceded that if the student body could be more widely informed of the real nature of the
S. C. M., the discussion groups would
enjoy greater popularity.
