RD OF LETTER AWARDS RAISED
BY MEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
star Spirt Athletes Mm Em Mt Mtckt; MsJarSperts
Not (MMtamtii
The atandard of block letter awards was raised at the meeting) of tho
lien's Athletic Association on Thursday last when the recommendations
of the committee appointed the week before were passed. The committee
consisted of Jimmy Dunn, Arnold Henderson, Oliver Camossi, Phil. Willis
and Hid. Paulson, •
Under the new system the awards committee will be made up of the
Presideitt of the Men's Athletics as chairman, captains of the teams playing
major sports, one member of the faculty and one member of tho Alumnae
Association. A man, to be eligible for a Dig Block must play a quarter of the
Canadian Rugby time, and three-quarters of the Bnglish Rugby games. In
basketball one half of the time Is tho
requirement. Traok requirements are
one tlrst dr Ave points in an Inter-
collegiate meet. A man playing a
minor sport, If he has a record comparable to the Canadian champion*
ship, is eligible for a Big Block.
Small blocks go to major team players who have not a Big Block, and
to outstanding second team players.
Swimmers with a first or two seconds
at Banff get a small block. One point
In an intercollegiate meet. The sen-
tor eight In rowing and men playing
one half the hockey time are in the
Une*QP tot a small block.
This standard is much higher than
before when, every man playing a
fbajor sport received a Big Block,
{fctd outstanding minor sport players
stood beyond the pale.
There was another plan that had
been submitted the week before by a
committee headed by Arnold Henderson, hut o*lt**V to tho objections raised, a new committee was appointed
Which brought ln the recommendations whieh were passed at the meeting on Thursday. The objections
raised to the first scheme which confined the number of Big Blocks to
ten yearly, mainly by Oliver Camossi
were that the ordinary man would
stand no chanoe, and the outstanding
Slayers would tend to individualism,
amoisl also pointed out in the meeting on February 16 that the scheme
Which was turned down would not
function easily as the placing of
players in order of merit would be
a difficulty.

Stt-dents of SmaMpox Menace
The students of this University
have been exposed to infection trom
small-pox during last week according
to University medical authorities and
should be vaccinated as soon as
possible to avoid the danger of
disease. A flrst year science student
who was not vaccinated developed
an eruption between Wednesday and
Friday 20th and 22nd of February
and ls at present ln Isolation. A fellow student ls being quarantined for
15  days.
Students who have been exposed
and who have not been vaccinated
and been infected may expect to come
down with tbe disease three weeks
after such exposure—approximately
Monday, March the 11th, or three
weeks from date of exposure.
Vaccination will be performed tor
those who cannot otherwise secure
lt, at the office ot the University
Health Service between the hours of
8 and 4 p.m.
Students who have been recently
vaccinated successfully and who have
shown an Immune reaction need not
be anxious—but those students who
have not been vaccinated, who are
not willing to be done—should report
immediately to 306 Auditorium.
Varsity Eliminates
Ex-Tech^ Ruggers
Seorei 11-5 WiilRKitekoit Ctitist
Taking an early lead, the Varsity
Bnglish Rugby team made sure of a
place in the Tlsdall cup series at
Brockton Point, Saturday, by eliminating the Ex-Techs 11-5 ln one of
the most keenly contested games of
the season. The blue and gold were
eight points up at half time but
weakened at the start ot tbe second
period, when the hard pace began
to tell on some ot the collegians who
had been galavanting at the Co-ed
Ball the night before, allowing the
Bx-HIgh team to score a goal and
come dangerously near tying the
count. They recovered, however, and
staged a rally which left no doubt
as to the superiorly of tho college
team.
On the Upper field the Meralomas
put out the Firemen 180 while the
Rowing Club eliminated the Sea-
forte 9-5. As Saturday's games were
the first in the new knockout series
four teams remain to battle for the
city championship. In the semi-finals

Toronto Continues Struggle
For freedom of the Press
A complete victory over the joint
executive of. the Executive Council has
been won by Editor L. J. Ryan of
the Toronto "Varsity." This victory
was symbolized by the decision oi
the executive body to ask the Caput
(a body consisting of the several
Deans and tho University President,)
to undertake an investigation of the
Varsity fracas. This Is the Investigation that Ryan was the first to Initiate and has consistently demanded
throughout the disagreement with the
governing bodies.
Ryan absolved his supporters from
their promise to serve under no other
editor but himself as soon as he became aware of Joint executive's concession. His adherents therefrom e-
lected P.EJ. Ussher, former news editor of the "Varsity" under Ryan, as
their  candidate  for   the   position   of
OEOrKlE tl. E. OREEN
Prolonged and hearty applause was
given to Mr. Green at a recent noon

that Mr, Oreen may be heard again
at the Musioal Society's Annual Con*
cert to be given on Friday and Saturday at the University Auditorium.

CililiititNiin Heir Series
There ls no doubt about the place
of muslo in the Univernity. The
Musical Society this year has pointed
the way in their series of Noon Hour
Recitals. The large and attentive
audiences which have followed them
week after week are proof of the
fact that the student body appreciates good music.
The real test, as to whether this
laudable effort ot the Musical Society
Is appreciated, will be shown by the
patronage which the University gives
at the Thirteenth Annual Concert to
be held next Friday and Saturday.
On these nights It is hoped that our
Auditorium will be packed by Varaity students. There is no doubt that
the program will be of high standard Judging from past performances
of the society under the baton of C.
Haydn Williams. This year's program should appeal to everyone because ot the novelty and variety introduced by the coutume and scene
effects.
As usual there are choral numbers
including an excerpt from the Cantata

RUGGERS LOSE TO RICHMOND
IN HARD-FJNGHT BATTLE
Putting up an excellent fight, Varsity's second Canadian Rugby outfit
lost to Richmond to the score of 7-0
hist Saturday.
Richmond made their first points
In the second quarter when Hartley
went across for the touchdown and
converted his own touch. Play for
tho remaining part wjis even, although
Varsity had a moment of exultation
when Paulson went across, but the
whistle   for  half-time   had   gone.
In the third quarter neither team
could get going and neither line was
at any time in danger.
Kicking to the dead-line in the last
quarter, Richmond scored their last
point bunging down Latta when he
attempted to return the ball to
neutral ground. Varsity came near
to scoring in the last ten seconds of
this quarter but fumbled when ten
yards out. The combination of the
farmer's backfleld told over the
weaker and Inexperienced Varsity
team. Rolston and Hartley were the
stars for Richmond while on the
Varsity team Latta and Nichols played  sttllar games.
If one man conquer In battle a
thousand times ten thousand men,
and If another conquer himself, he
is the greatest of conquerors.

By decision of the "powers that be"
the contest is being held a week earl*
ier than last year, in view, no doubt,
of ideal climatic conditions and the
excellent state of. the course.
Although Arts '80 carried off the
Trophy last year, their exists some
doubt as to the result next Wednesday and considerable interest has
been aroused for a good many weeks
ln sporting circles. No team is spec
ial favorite and popular opinion re*
mains unbiassed. The Grad Team,
which was expected to take a prominent part In the race has dropped
out, and a strong team from the Ang*
llcan Theological College has taken
lt place.
Running, in all Its departments
has gained rapid favour with U. B. C.
Students since Percy Williams attended 'Varsity and great Interest is
taken in all these events.
Amongst the competitors will be
star runners from Arts '29, Arts '30,
Arts '31, Science '80, Science '81 Aggies, Anglican Theological College,
and if the opinion of authorities Is
correct, the race will prove one of
the most thrilling and keenly-con tested since the event was Instituted.
Amazonian Co-eds Hold
Successful Jamboree
The women of the University staged
one of the most brilliant affairs of
the season when they entertained the
men at the Co-ed ball on Friday
evening in the New Auditorium. The
dance was a huge success and was
pronounced the best yet by the Ave
hundred couples who were present.
For this occasion the man assumed
the role of the shrinking violet and
could only dance when he was asked
by some brazen female. He was
escorted there and his program filled
by his fair partners. For once the
women had the men ln their clutches
and undertook to demonstrate Just
how il Is done, proving efficient
hosts.
The smart sports dresses and the
bright berets worn by the women
blended with the cool flannels and
plusfours of the men to form a gay
scene, as the dancers swayed rythmical^ to the strains of "I can't give
you anything but love," "Happy
Days," "Sally of My Dreams," etc.
Tha refreshments were excellent
and plentiful, despite the large
crowd of hungry dancers. The women
did the foraging for the buffet supper while the men sat around languidly awaiting them.
Patrons were: Chancellor and Mrs.
R. E. McKechnie, President and Mrs.
L. S. Klink, Dean M. L. Bollert, Dean
and Mrs. D. Buchanan, Dean and Mrs.
E. W. Brock, Dean and Mrs, F. M.

PAST ANO PRESENT
By a sweeping majority the Manager System was adopted at
the Alma Mater meeting last Wednesday. The decision, however,
was invalidated through the lack of a quorum. But this much
Is clear: student opinion was behind the plan advocated by the
Finance Committee and upheld by the Ubyssey'
A round robin signed by several prominent students who
seem to be the chief antagonists of the scheme endeavors to
present a convlnving case. It opens with this delusive statement:
"The Manager Plan is a new idea." We submit that it Is not;
that it is being successfully used in other Universities; and that
since the proposed system is modelled after typical ones In other
colleges the U. B. C. would not be making a radical move.
The letter proceeds to eulogise the plan which the Students'
Council created last fall, We claim that the present system is
none other than the older one patched and varnished to look as
though it were new. The Curator this year was paid 250 dollars to completely re-organize the buying, selling, and distribution of equipment. He has succeeded in bringing order out of
chaos. But the point we wish to show is this: since former
curators were unable to run this department efficiently, will
future appointees be able to do so?
It is claimed that the present treasurer has worked out a
system of bookkeeping which is capable of supplying the Council
with full information on costs. This may bo so, but will his
successors in office follow his method or their own? We are
foroed to conclude that if the present plan is allowed to continue
the inefficiency of former years and inadequancy of the present
system will continue to hamper the University.
The present curator, whose work has received deserved
praise from both opponents and upholders of the manager system, is himself a supporter of the proposed Manager plan.
THORNS SPRUNA UP AND CHOKED THEM
Does prosperity mean the suppression of truth? Are civil-
llzed nations those which allow conditions to exist but refuse
to talk about them? If so, Canada is to some extent both civilized and prosperous, with Ontario leading the rest of the Dominion.
At any rate such is the conclusion one might draw from information concerning the suppression of two Ontario editors
who have been suppressed for what they claim is publication of
truth.
The flrst case is that of L. J. Ryan, former editor of the
Toronto "Varsity," who made certain charges against authorities.
These charges, he claims, can be substantiated. He was dismissed before having gained the investigation on behalf of the
students which he and his staff demanded.
The second case is that of Aarvo Vaaro, Ontario newspaper
editor, who was sentenced to six months imprisonment and
fined $1000 for publishing articles which were held to be reflections on the King. According to the Canadian Press, the articles
referred to the King's illness and drew comparison between the
comforts surrounding the King and the condition of the "working class."
What Mr. Vaara said in his "comparison" we do not know,
so we are not in a position to say whether or not he deserved
his punishment. People must admit, however, that there is
a contrast between comforts surrounding the King and those
surrounding the average workman. Moreover, it is the duty
of an editor to attempt to interpret and explain things as they
are. Probably Mr. Vaara's interpretation was wrong, but at any
rate he was dealing with facts and presumably doing his duty as
an editor.
Art Club
Mr. Vanderpant waa the speaker
at the meeting of the Art Club held
Thursday evening at the Vanderpant
Galleries. After a most Interesting
talk and informal discussion on the
modem trend ot pictorial art, the
members were shown the parallel between the developments of this branch
of Art and music. Mr. Vanderpant has
many records imported from Europe

the older school of music.

at the home ot Miss Louise Morrison, took the form of a Schubert
evening. A most enjoyable talk on
Schubert, his life and works, was

mainder of the evening was profitably
spent wtth conversational games. The
club will meet again on Monday,

SOPHOMORES DISCUSS PLANS
FOR MOPPED GIFT
' There was so much discussion of
the various factors of the proposed
Arts '81 commemorative gift that, in
the class meeting last Friday, lt was
not decided whether the plan would
be adopted. The scheme waa out*
lined by Hhic North, President for
the year, as follows:
It ls the proposal ot Arts '31 • to
form the nucleus of a society for the
collection of material of Interest and
of historical value to British Colum*
bla. At present there ls no field work
being done ln this direction and lt is
thought that a class, like Arts 'SI,
with Its members representing every
corner of the Province, oould carry
on this work most efficiently.
Already a number of leads to actual sources of material of historic
value have been sent before the '81
executive. Moat of these plans already offered would not embrace
any expense of note to the year, as
the vast majority of matter will be
of a literary nature. This type of Information has to be dug out by Individuals who are in close touoh with
the old-timers of the Province. It Is
usually found, too, that persons
possessing old Journals and documents nre only too glad to hand them
over to the University, whore they
know they will be in safe keeping
and of a great service to British
Columbia as a whole.
If this plan for a commemorative
gift Is accepted by Arts '81, a large
executive, distinctly apart from the
class executive, will be formed to
direct campaign movements. Mem*
bers ot this proposed executive will
submit their names rather than have
an election ot officers.
On Wednesday, in Arts 100, the class
will meet at 18.15 (noon) to weigh
the pros and eons ot the suggested
scheme. A vote will be oast to de*
clde whether Arts '81 will adopt this
proposal for a commemorative gift
to the University. Every member of
the year Is expected to turn out to
put this meeting over with a bang.
OUTBREAK OF FIRE IN SCIENCE
BUILDING CAUSES OREAT ALARM
Great exitement but little damage
was created when a fire broke out
In the Science building Monday at
3.45.
This near-tragedy was the result
of the dropping of a gallon Jar of alcohol in the chemical store-room on
the third floor. Flumes from sodium
compounds mingling with gases from
chlorine explosions made the episode
Intensenly exciting to the 300 or more
spectators. The gallant science-men
rudhed to the rescue with the fire-hose
and flooded the room before the arrival of the fire-engine.
The store-keeper suffered slight in-
Jury to his leg but no one else was
hurt.

Last year the match ended In a
draw, two all, so that the decision

Of the former studont team only one
player remains while the Faculty

as before. Nevertheless, memories of
the Christmas examinations should
spur the students on to wreak vengeance.

FABIAN
University of Toronto—The Unlver*
slty Reds aro organising a Fahlan So*
cletyl Following the talk given by
Mr. J. 8. Woodeworth, M.P., on "Capital and Labour," at Wymilwood recently, a group of radical enthusiasts
are forming a society for the discussion of labor problems and outstanding Labour loaders will spook at their
meetings. As a proof of high serious*
noas a committee of tour wm chosen
to commence aotlon.
Mr. Woodsworth explained that in
Bngland it was tho intellectuals who
organiiod labor and trade anions Into
tho Labor Party and ho could sse no
reason why If a small group of Intelligent people set about It with determination, thoy should be unsuccessful
here.
"We aro developing a situation that
may bo known as 'Industrial Serf*
dom.' Tho full effect of tho Industrial Revolution has boon experienced
here in a very short time; the industrial chain and departmental stores
and banks aro all concentrated In the
hands ot a few.
The Treaty of Versailles dealt with
tho labor problem ten years ago and
felt that lt should not be regarded as
a moro commodity. Certain rights
wore specified, discussed at Washing*
ton, and adopted in Canada. But the
Federal Oovernment shifted the responsibility to the individual provinces, and tho province! have not acted.
The labor provisions of the Versailles Treaty havo not heen carried
out."
Mr, Woodsworth illustrated these
statements with examples: The right
to organise was granted but this has
become so limited that only certain
industries now havo that privilege,
there Is a minimum wage, but that
ls so minimum that it is remarkable
how men are able to support themselves and tholr families. The eight-
hour day in the mining districts of
Nova Scotia and even up in Algoma
ia an unknown quantity. And there
Is no such thing as unemployment insurance. If a man is out of work
it is his own business and not that
ot his country.
The chief factors leading to bad
labor conditions are that we have not
a trade union organisation strong
enough to force action, and what is
worse, public opinion ls against it.
LOAN FUM) FOR STUDENTS
ESTABUSHED AT ANTrOCH
A student loan fund to promote international good-will among the young
men and women ot Canada, the
United States, and Spanish America
has been established by Mr, Peter
B. Alllot of New Jersey. Antioch College, at Yellow Springs, Ohio, has
been ohosen as the institution where
students can take advantage of this
fund.
Canadian students have boon at*
traotod to Antioch because of its
novel plan for combining In a single
organised program a liberal education, training for a calling, and prao-
tloai experience In re«d life. Half the
students study at college while the
other half work In Industry.
In this part-time work, students are
plaoed In carefully selected positions
of unusual educational value In business, journalism, education, engineering, home economies, scientific re*
search, and many other fields. Two
students altornate on each job In
shifts ot five or ten weeks. Antioch
students are engaged in about two
hundred firms In sixteen different
states. This part-time work, under
experienced direction, helps young
people to determine thetr callings,
and to prepare for them. It also en*
ables tbe students to pay about halt
the cost of a college education.
Antlooh students are carefully se*
lected. They eome from all but two
ot the forty-olght American states,
from several Canadian provinces, and
from foreign countries. At no other
Amerloan college Is the student body
of young men and women so representative of every part ot America
and all phases of American life. A
considerable proportion ot the stu*
dents go into graduate study, education, or scientific research. The
standards of the college are high, and
only students capable ot excellent
scholarship and those of substantial
capacity for the development ot character and self-reliance, oan be accepted.
information about the loan fund
can be bad by writing directly to
Antioch College at Yellow Springs,
Ohio.

Excellent Program Planned
By Varsity Musicians
Features of this year's program
are the novelty choruses by the men
and women. Their exact nature is
being kept secret but it may be announced that the men are presenting an act called "Plantation Echoes"
which introduces a number of negro
melodies. The women's number ia
called "Reminiscent Days" and appearing ln dainty flowered dresses
amid the beauties ot a summer garden
they sing those old songs our grandmothers loved so well.
The orchestral accompaniment
throughout the choral number, adds
to the effectiveness and pleasure of
chestra for such selections es the
the program. An important part of
the program is given over to the or-
novelties "Serenade" (Novelty for
Strings) and a symphonic transcription of the modern dance tune "The
Doll Dance" and the contrasting
number of Romberg's "Blossom
Time." Included on the program are
a group of piano solos by Christy
Madsen and Cornet solos by George
H. E. Green.
Every year concert-goers look forward to the operatic number of the
program. ThlB year they will not
be disappointed although there is a
variation from the usual procedure.
It is ln the nature of a "Potpourri
of Operatic Selections" which will include solos, duets, quartettes, etc.,
presented with all the skill a costumier could  devise.
A special sale ot tickets will be
held at the entrance to the Cafeteria

Traffic Signals Discussed
At Engineering Institute
IW. 1 BeirNf Afrwtttt Ctrtfi final hiti
The necessity for signals in order
to ensure the greatest degree of safety for both the pedestrian and motor*
1st was emphasized ln the address before the Engineering Institute, Tues*
day noon, on "Traffic Signals" by Mr,
J. W. A. Bollong.
The speaker showed the importance
of the location of the signals; and
discussed the merits and defects
which prevail under existing conditions.
In Mr. Bollong/s opinion, a lamp in
the centre of the street Is slightly
more convenient than one which
hangs overhead or stands on the corn*
er.
' Various types of signal lamps were
described with a careful explanation
of the defects which had to be removed from eaoh. He pointed out
that while the strong diffused light is
absolutely necessary, it ls also desirable that the cable should be small.
Then followed a brief description
of the mechanism of signals such as
are now In use in Vancouver. His
lucid explanation ot the master-control system was attended with interest as was also ills discussion of the
personal problem. As regards the
latter, Mr. Bollong explained that it
is desirable to eliminate as much as
possible the necessity for human labor
tn running the signals.
It was from Switzerland that we obtained the electric clock which automatically governs traffic at present,
thus eliminating the need for a man's
constant attention. It is an illuminating and interesting fact that a lamp
will burn, unattended, for six hundred
hours.
The speaker pointed out that the
conditions of the streets permit that
traffic speed per second can be Increased without difficulty at the master-control station, thus regulating
the rate of travel all over tho city.

Varsity will meet the Rowing Club

Last week's games wore the first
Stayed in five weeks, frost and snow
aving rendered the grounds unsafe
for play. Saturday, however, weather
conditions were ideal though naturally the underfooting was soggy following Friday night's rain and shortly after play started the ball became
heavy and hard to handle.
Varsity took the offensive but it
was some time before they could
find an opening to break through
for a ..core. The chance came after
a fine backfleld run which resulted
In PhU Barratt touching down on the
extreme right wing, The convert
failed.
Following the kick off and a free
kick by Ex-Techs, Varsity were
forced to touch down behind their
goal line to save a score. Varsity
carried the ball thirty yards but
Flanagon of the Ex Techs Intercepted a pass and streaked down the
wing with only the full back to beat.
Ford coming In from the side caught
blm with a flying tackle. Before
many minutes the blue and gold rallied again, Phil Barratt going over
for his second score of the gamo following a three-quarter run. Murray
converted from a difficult angle. At
half time Varaity led 8-0.
The flrst fifteen minutes of tbe
second period saw Ex-Techs taking
the offensive. They pinned the U.
B. C. team behind ita twenty-five
yard line pounding at the defense.
Stiff tackling by the students held
them for some time. The determined
rushes finally resulted In a try which
was converted for five points. Varaity came right back, McNeill breaking through to pass to Fell who
crossed the line with several of the
opposing team at his heels. Not
satisfied wtth dropping on the ball
near the wing he attempted to carry
it around behind the goal posts. This
he did but made the mistake of circling too widely and crossing the dead
line. After the try waa converted
it was dlsaallowed because the ball
had been out ot play. Varaity scored
again before time. Looke kicked
ahead, followed up fast, tackling* the
man who took the catch. Estabrook
picked up the loose ball, passed to
McNeil, who scored. Final count,
Varsity eleven, Ex-Techs five.

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Mar sir:
in the February tt issue of the
Ubyssey there appeared a letter signed by several students which so^ completely obsoured the Student Manager System thai we hasten to put
the issue squarely before the student
body. _      .
They maintained that last Autumn
the A.M.8. embarked upon a new system which they call the Curator System. By that they are admitting that
the method used the previous years
has outgrown Its usefulness. It ta
Our contention that last fell the Society did not adopt a new system and
that the present system is essentially
the same as that employed In pre*
vtous years; and therefore, according
to the aforementioned letter, It ts not
suited for us now. We fall to see
thst, by appointing s paid Curator to
take care of equipment and keep a
few books, we have adopted a new
financial system. We are still conducting business as we did two. three or
tour years sgo, except that we now
have a paid curator—bookkeeper to
keep track of equipment. Surely we
are not changing the system by appointing a paid curator!
May we be permitted to draw to
your attention another Item whereby
the aforementioned letter; tends to
throw a false light on the Manager
Soheme. The letter mentioned that
the finance Committee did not criticise the curator. We beg to point
out that the Curator and the Finance
Committee We both appointed about
the same time. Obviously, the Committee could hardly investigate something that was scarcely in existence.
When we consider that both the
present Committee and the one proceeding it have recommended the adoption of a Manager System; when
we consider that it has never yet
failed in a university; that we cannot possibly lose by it's adoption; that
it centralises our whole system; that
we shall be able to draw In future
years from the School of Commerce
for our Managers; and when we consider the many other good and sound
reasons the Committee has presented
to us, then we are convinced that
the Student Manager System Is what
the A.M.S. needs.
In all fairness to the Alma Mater
Society, we believe that a meeting
should be called immediately so that
the students may be able to uphold
the altogether favorable decision of
the "quoremless" meeting.
Yours truly,
PERCY  H. HENDERSON

The Bdltor,
Dear Sir:
After having listened to five noon-
hour recitals arranged by the executive of the Musical Society of the
University, I feel I must say a word
of appreciation. I think I am expressing the opinions of many when I say
that Mr. Lucas and bis executive are
to be congratulated on the class of
music which they have heen able to
furnish free of charge, to the students
of the University. In giving us something that Ih pleasurable bh well an
odlfylng they are fulfilling ii function,
which, as yet, Is sadly lacking In the
course of studies maintained by the
department.
In appreciation of their splendid
spirit I think it behoves everyone who
approves of this letter to get behind
the concert which is being presented
on Friday and Saturday nlghtB and
make sure, from the standpoint of
the box office, that the affair ls as
successful as I am sure the performance will be.
Sincerely,
CALLICLBS.
Editor "Ubyssey",
Dear Sir:
Last week a class-meeting was
called to discuss a subject ot vital
importance to the whole ciaas; we
were favored at that meeting with
an attendance of about one half of the
class members, the other half, coming
tn to the one o'clock lecture, heard
the discussion signing off and is still
wondering what it is all about.
We do not purpose to moralize on
"deplorable lack of spirit" shown by
attendance at class—and other—meetings: often an hour tn the library,
cat. or common-room Is much more
refreshing, but still we feel that In
Justice to the executive that Is working In the class Interests, in Justice
to the class members who are really
Interested and for your own enlightenment, faithful and punctual attendance at meetings !s no more than
we can rightly expect.
This week another class meeting
Is being held to discuss further and
make a decision on the question of
the commemorative project. We expect the loyal attendance ot every
class member this time.
The ARTS '31 EXECUTIVE.
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
We should like to make some sort
of an answer to your reply to "Os*
wald's" letter in the last Issue of
your valued publication. After con*
sldering the matter thoroughly and
giving jt mature consideration, and
much deliberation, we have reached
tbe conclusion that you are slightly
moist, in tact, all wet.
To a perfectly candid criticism of
your pub. office, you reply with a
arsenal attack on tbe writer's fra*
ratty, in an effort to bide the tact
that you had no legitimate answer to
hta fault*flndlng.
In our opinion this Is rather a
cowardly and unsportsmanlike action.
We wonder It It is your opinion that
a few wise cracks are a suitable reply to honest criticism.
You state further that the writer
and his fraternity are "rowdy." it
your memory serves you correctly,
you may remember that upon tbe occasion of "Oswald's" visit to your of*
flee, you were observed scuffling with
a friend*. We realise that tbe editor
of the Ubyssey is a busy person. But
surely he should be able to take time
to get his exercise on the playing
fields, or Ih some other portion of
tbe great outdoors ot our marvellous
province. We should hate to Infer
that the Editor was merely indulging In some sohoolboy horseplay,
Imitation ls alleged to be the sin*
cerest form of flattery. It may be
that "Oswald" and hie companions,
being mere humans, Were trying to
flatter you la a subtle manner, by
mimicking your aetlous.
It seems to us as though you should
be a little more accurate in your statements, or at least set a better example to your assistants.
And as for statements regarding
the actions ot our fraternity brothers
in your editorial columns, we cannot
recollect having read anything In
your esteemed paper forbidding members of the staff trom using the pub.
office.
If this Is what you have been driving at in your "editorials" we feel
that we are your debtors for eternity
for explaining them to us. One of
our members ls an editor, and surely
editors are intelligent men. Yet this
Is the flrst time we have been able
to fathom those two column 10 point
splurges.
In conclusion we should like to
state that we feel an opology is due
us. Really we are al) nice boys,
good to our mothers, fond of dogs
and children and quite undeserving
of the frightful adjective you use to
describe us.
Yours very truly,
"THREE  MORE  OSWALDS."
P.S.—Do not "print this for what
it is worth." Use lt on one of those
dull days when the best the editorial
mind can do Is turn out an "editorial" urglug the masses to patronise
the merchants who advertise In your
columns.
THE SAME  THREE.
Editor's Note.—We appreciate the
criticism of the Oswalds. These fraternity men have been good enough
to point out, our alleged woaknenses.
We believe readers would be Interested to know what the Oswakle

Editor, The Ubyssey,
Dear  Sir:
I signed a letter In connection with the
Student Manager System which appeared
In laat iasuti of the *Jnyn*ey since that
time a further consideration of tho matter has required me to change my attitude. I take thla opportunity to explain my preaent attitude which Is favorable to the establishment of the proposed system, 1 apologise to those to whom
thla step la In any way Inconsiderate, but
they would not ask me to maintain an
Insincere position.
A Mtliifaclory financial system depend! upon (1) an efficient troaaurer and
(2) a curator system. The good management of financial matters this year nan
been due to (1) an excellent treasurer;
<-) a paid curator.
But under the present electoral system
we have no u«mirance that next year we
shall have such an efficient treasurer a..
we have this year. At preaent, a poor
treasurer means poor financial management and the poaauaiilon of a poor treasurer la not merely a possibility but a
probability,
The propound Manager fly-item doen a-
way with this fundamental WMkneaa, for
a paid servant must render efficient aervice or be dlamleaed.
For these reaemia 1 support the proposed Manager Syatem;
1. It Insure*, In a far greater degree
than at prttaent, an efficient financial
directorate.
1.   It provider1 that more time shall be
given to the auiiervlHlon of details,
Your  truly,
JAM KB DUNN.

The smug infinitives,

Huge satisfaction gives.
Though it betrays my brutal strain,
