Disraeli Discussed By
Letters Club
Benjamin Disraeli, son of Isaac
D'Israell, politician, Jewish dandy,
and novelist, was discussed at Letters
Olub on Tuesday evening at the
house of Mrs. T. Laraen, 27th Avenue
West. The paper on Disraeli given
by Bill Taylor was methodically
planned, so that the listener was
&iven a straightforward account of
the man and author.
Beginning with an Imaginative
short history of the ancestors of this
Jewish man who became Prime
Minister of Great Britain, Mr, Taylor
continued with a chronological history of the writing of the novels of
"Dizzy," anil related the production
of this literature with the ambitions,
sentiments, and political opinions of
the man.
In the discussion that followed, after a short criticism of the paper by
Mr. Larson, Professor Hill-Tout, a
guest for the evening who remembered Disraeli, made some interesting
comments on the undoubted brilliance
of the famous Jew. Challenged
about the so-called "political novels,"
Mr. Taylor admitted that he believed
these to be largely political pamphlets Interpersed with terse chapters of rather stiff "talk." He also
gave, on being questioned about
Dizzy's private life, instances of the
kindness and affection which Ben
was able to display on private occasions.
On the resignation of Miss Bice
Clegg from the presidency of the
club, Miss Annie Taylor was elected
to fill the office, while Miss Mary
WattB was made secretary in place
of Miss  Taylor.

Information has been received from
the Italian Consul regarding courses
at the Itoyiil Italian University for
Foreigners at Pevuzla tor 1928-29.
Further Information may be obtained
by Inquiring at the Registrars office.
On Wednesday noon In Arts '100 an
eiilliusliistle audience listened to the
Impassioned arguments of the debaters of Arts '2S and '29 on the resolution, "Resolved that tho formation of
an (>, T, C. lu thin University Is a
retrogressive step." Arts '2S upheld
tho ulllrniatlve of the quest Ion ami
won by a unanimous decision from tho
Judges, Mr. Lamb, Mr. Stedman and
Mr. Mackay. Messrs. Whltely and
Taylor represented Arts '28 and Messrs. Keyserllng and Baker represented Arts '29.
. Mr. Whltely opened the debate.
He insisted that the introduction of
such an organization into the University would change the existing
form of education. He contended that
students ln the past had rejected the
O. T. C, that the O. T. C. would breed
a war group mllltantly aggressive, and
that Canada has agreed by signing
the Covenant of the League of Nation's to foster disarmament. Mir.
Whltely was in the top of his debating form, and gave his listeners a
very good address.
Mr. Keyserllng then mounted the
rostrum and with forceful delivery,
disputed the contentions of his opponent. He contended that society
insisted on personal aggressiveness
that lt is an essential pre-requlslte of
success ln society, as witnessed by
such men as Napoleon, Luther and
Rochefeller. He maintained that the
criterion of success was based on
reality and not on idealistic dreams.
He suggested that the O. T. C. would
be beneficial in fostering this spirit
of personal competition.
.Next Mr. Taylor presented his
arguments. He argued that military
training was not good exercise and
quoted authorities to prove that il deformed the body. Such a group organization kills Individual Initiative.
He said that the O. T. C. would be
useless since Canada could only go
to war with the States, and such procedure would be mere suicide.
The final speaker, Mr. Baker pointed out the necessity for discipline and
subordination to authority which Is
so lacking in our present society. The
O. T. C. would give students this
training which Is not given In the
home, the school, or the church One
would then receive mora! training and
,self control. Since Canada could not
go to war the f). T. C. would only
make her prepared against at tack.
The rebuttals were fast and furious,
and the audience expressed its enjoyment of the delude by hearllly applauding  Ihe speakers.

"The newspapers or this country
are building up a wholesome, clean,
god-fearing nation, and I hope thoy
will continue to do so." With these
words Mr, Lukln Johnston, of the
"Vancouver Province," concluded his
address to au Interested audience at
the S.C.M lecture In Ag, 100 on Tuesday noon.
In order that his audience might
understand and appreciate the work
of the modern newspaper more fully,
Mr. Johnston led up to his subject
with a brief history of the development of the English newspaper, The
early papers were of a political nature, often reporting parliamentary
procedure. Gradually they took on
the form of general news bulletins,
growing ln she and circulation.
In the Crimean War newspapers
did a great work ln exposing the
terrible conditions under which the
soldiers labored. During the Great
War, Lord Northcllffe was perhaps
the greatest man ln the newspaper
world. He challenged the censorship
of news from the war, and its foolishness. He believed that the public
should know the truth.
The speaker told ot the great development of newspapers during the
last few years. With better means
of mechanical production, of communication, and of transportation, the
newspapers had increased their circulation to go hand-ln-hand with the
recent spread of education.
The editorials used to be the important part of a paper. Now it is
news, along with the headlines. This
growing importance of news is made
possible largely through methods of
Large syndicates now sell rights
of printing their news and other
material to the various individual
newspapers at a comparatively low
cost. Hence news Is flashed round
the world, and the newspapers distribute it to the public within twenty-
four hours of the actual occurrence.
Mr. Johnston pointed out the evils
of syndication. In the first place
syndication prevents a newspaper
from encouraging local talent in fiction. This is because the best of
material can be obtained from a syndicate all ready to be printed at a
very  low  cost.
On the other hand bad material
conies mixed with good, so that a news
paper must exercise careful judgement as to what it prints. As an
example the speaker referred to the
"Hickman crime" and the "disclosures" of this case that were In
e|rcillation. He admitted that crime
was news and that the truth should
be published, but he did nol think
that the Canadian people wanted all
the sensational details of such a crime
committed  in  another country.
Here the applauao from the audience showed its altitude as regards
this  problem.
Mr. Johnston then told of the
changed attitude towards newspaper
men. No longer are they regarded
as pests. All outstanding men now
realize that the best way to reach
the public is through the newspapers.
The marvellous system and organization of world-wide news enables the
newspaper to do a great work in the
building up of a nation.
Be sure to get your men lined
up for the Cross Country Race
and the Arts '20 Relay at soon
at. possible. Hand In Hat of entries to Jack Wilson.
All women wishing to try out for
the International debate to be held
between the University of Washington and the University of B. C, will
please sign the notice on the Womon's
board. Four people will be needed,
two for the away team and two for
the at home team. The subject will
probably be "Resolved that the Intervention of the United States In
Nlceraguan politics is justifiable."
It Is advisable that womin trying
out should prepare a five minute
speech on the subject proposed.

Tisdall Cup Final
to be Staged
To-morrow afternoon the Science
team will trot forth against the Ex-
KIng George squad in the final game
of the Tlsdall Cup Series. Play will
commence at 3:16 p.m. and will bo
preceded by an Intermediate fixture
which brings together Victoria College
and the local squad.
The main event promises to be a
hard and bitter struggle and the Engineers are going to feel the loss of
several of thetr stars who were indefinitely crocked In last Saturday's
game with the Rowing Club. Captain
Bert Tupper 1b suffering from a
sprained ankle and may not be able
to fill his position on the wing. Fred
Foerster, star hook, is suffering from
a badly poisoned foot and will be out
of lt. Another cripple Is Phil Barratt,
plucky littlo five-eighths, who Is suffer*
ing from a severe kick ln the back.
Sparks is suffering trom an Injured
foot and may not be able to turn out.
The U. B. C. boys, however, have
plenty of reserves and Coaoh Tyrwhltt
intends to strut out a few new stars
against the west-enders. Furthermore,
all-round superior condition and speed
should go a long way to offset any
loss from casualties. In any event the
game will be bitterly fought.
The rest of the scoring division is
intact. Fell, supported by Richard*
son, will do a lot of damage on the
wing. Phil Willis and Estabrook will
fill in pn the inside positions and Billy
Locke will be on hand to take care of
any fumbles. This combination should
smash up any blaok and green
attempts to get through, while on the
offensive it should get across for a
few points.
If Sclouco wins to-morrow they will

Musical Society Sets
Date of Spring Concert
March 2nd and 3rd are the dates set
for the Twelfth Annual Spring Concert of the University Musical Society.
For some time the members have
been practising faithfully ln preparation for this event in order that they
may surpass the high standard of previous years.
The programme for this concert has
been very carefully chosen. In the
ensemble numbers particular attention
is being paid to tonal effects to give
the numbers the desired lightness and
finish. This Is particularly noticeable
In a group of two negro spirituals,
entitled "De^-p River," and "Dig My
Grave." Such numbers are in response to the growing demand of the
public for the pleasing and haunting
melodies of the Old South. The orchestra will also present a selection
of this type in their number "New
World Symphony," and arrangement
by Dvorak of the favorite song "Going Home."
As a companion piece to these numbers will be given "Love's Benediction," an arrangement by Sliver from
the Irish Folk Song "Emer's Farewell to Cucullau." While of a more
sprightly nature is the charol ballad
"The Miller's Wooing" Fanning), with
Its light and merry accompaniment.
The martial element hold sway in
the two selections: Leslie's "Scots Wha
Hae" and "Comrades In Arms" (arranged by Haines). The first is the
well known Scottish air, while the
second Is a longer number of a very
pleasing   harmony.
Throughout the choral numbers the
orchestra will accompany the Glee
Club, besides presenting several selections themselves, These will Include
Ketelby's Oriental fantasy "In a Chinese Temple Harden" and "Arabesque"
(Do bunny).
The Roclely Is continuing Its practice of present Ing operatic numbers
with costume and scenic effects. It
has yet been announced as to what
these Mhall be nor the names of those
taking the principal parts, Such announcement Is expected in the course
of the week, In the meantime students are advised to date either March
2nd or 3rd for   areal musical treat.

It is our privilege, to-day, to welcome In I', li. ('. stiulenls nl'
Victoria College.
The "Viotoria Invasion" of V, H. C, students to the capital, and
tho invasion of Victoria Niudents to Vancouver have now become
annual events, anticipated equally by both groups of students. Although it is only twice in the year that representatives of the two
colleges officially meet, a keen interest in University affairs has been
developed; while the ever-increasing spirit of friendly rivalry between
athletic teams augurs well for inter-collegiate sport of the future.
As hosts the students of Victoria College hold an enviiable reputation. We can only hope thnt on this, the occasion of their annual
visit, the programme which has been arranged for their entertainment will prove equally as enjoyable as past visits to Victoria College
have proved to us,
In this University wo aro particularly fortunate in having an
excellent library with special facilities for upper year students and
graduates who wish to do reference work. The majority of the senior
Students, having carrel privileges, take advantage of these to frequent
the stacks—presumably for the purpose of studying. Unfortunately,
however, there are others who frequent the stacks but employ their
time in conversing with friends in the neighbouring carrels. No doubt
the conversations are intellectual and provoke discussion but the
facts remain that, firstly, the University Library was not built as a
recreation ground for animated conversationalists and that, secondly.
some students, having carrel privileges, wish to use them for the
purpose for which they were instituted—that of reference work,
Under such circumstances if students do not wish tn take advantage of their privileges they should notify the authorities to that
effect as there are many other students who would be only to glad
of such opportunities.
The other remedy is that the more loquacious holders of stack permits should consider those, who, at this time of year are probably writing theses or essays and refrain from unnecessary conversation until
they are outside of the Library precincts.

Kdlior Ubyssey,
Dear Madam:
The executive of Arts '30 feel the
necessity of replying to remarks that
have been made reflecting on their
managemeiit of tho class party.
Hawaiian decorations were used to
carry out an original Idea. Particular exception was taken to the innovation. It has been called "frankly
vulgar and disgusting," which 1b a
criticism entirely uncalled for. We
have been very much misunderstood.
There are some of the opinion that
i his dance was put ou especially for
lis during characteristics. This was
fur from the minds of the executive.
The Innovation was brought In solely
io support und to make a success of
whin we considered a very appropriate Hawaiian atmosphere.
We (|UiMllon, "responsible membera
ol the upper yeiirs," that Is mentioned
In an editorial. We refer to tho class
party of Arts "in, where they took
ilii'lci us iheir motive and Apache
dancers for their entertainment. We
are nol attacking the Senior class, but
are only defending our responsibility
In a comparison.
We do nol apologize but if such entertainment Is distasteful we think
(t should not bo Included in class
functions, where there are so many
of different opinion.
Yours for better understanding,
Arts '30 Executive.
Detty Whiteside.
Jack Conlan,
(editors Note.
With the Inst paragraph of this
letter we agroe entirely. "If such entertainment Is distasteful" and It is
—wo think with the executive of
Arts '30 "that It should not be Included at class functions."
As to the comparison of the Arts
"SO entertainment with ihat of the
senior class, we realize that the
Apache dance huty be worthy of censure but It is not quite in the same
class as Hie "Hawaiian Innovation."
It. Is sufficient proof of the questionable taste of the latter that the
Students' Council felt called upon to
pass a measure providing for future
supervision of entertainment at class

Otherwise Agrioulture will draw a

the schedule.
At the meet ing held on Wednesday,
Mr. W. II. Young, assistant city
engineer, ai'd chairman of the Vancouver Hranch of the Engineering
Institute, presented an address on tho
"Requirements of a Municipal Engineer." A new angle from which to
consider engineering was Introduced
hy the speaker, since his remarks
dealt with the human side ot the
profession rather than with the
technical side,
Although making specific reference
to municipal engineering Mr. Young's
address applied equally well to any
other engineering activity. He
showed that there are many corners
In the mind of an engineer which
cannot be filled by technical training.
While technical education is perhaps
the toundamental requirement there
are other things which the engineer
must acquire by his own Initiative
outside the walls of university or
office. The engineer who has not
the ability to present his probloms
to the business or non-technical man
In lucid form, who cannot convincingly address nnd correspond with those
In other walks of life, who Is unsympathetic to the viewpoint which
Is outside tho rut of his profession
or who dons not, understand tho
workings of the business and social
world, cannot, hope to be truly successful, Tho tendency of the engineer Is to choose hla circle of friends
from among those of hla own profession, Thla, In the mind of the
speaker Is unwise, and that the young
engineer ahould include ln thla circle
those of other professions, business
men and non technical men, whenever possible. In closing, the speaker
pointed out that In the Engineering
Institute of Canada la found the beat
organised method of broadening the
mind of the engineer.
Member of I.W.W.
Gives Address
to Students
"From an economic standpoint Canada is owned by neither (Ireat Britain
nor the Canadians themselves, but by
the United States." Along these lines
Mr. Windle, of the I.W.W., spoke when
ho developed his aubject, "Who Owns
Canada?" at the open forum last Wednesday afternoon,
To see how our present society
came into being the speaker maintained that we must look hack i.n the
history of Canada. When the eiulv
settlors  came   ill)   the   SI.    Lawrence
Ihey  ilhl   Illll   I'i'llll/e   I lie   W 'filth   nt   I lli.-l
new land which 111, ■ > uetv visiilun.
Later, however, the iialions of Kunipc
ri'iill/iil Ihe great wealth of the ,\e\v
World, especially In the fur trade.
Mr. Windle pointed out the iinscrupul-
ousness oi' the fur merchants In their
dealings with  the Indians.
Hut Kngkmd had to have her uliar*
of the fur trade as well us tho designing French seigneurs. In 1G70 a.
charter was granted to the Hudson's
Hay Company. By this Kngland held
and claimed the same territory as
France. Moth took possession of the
New World "by the right of might."
Croat profits were realized, and other
companies were formed to compete
for the trade in furs. For years "fur
and blood literally How." Fach group
wanted everything; wars' ensued, and
many lives were lost. It was many
years before they resorted to amalgamation.
As a result of this exploitation and
money malting on tlie part of many In
the early days n rigid class line has
grown up In Canada according lo the
speaker. To-day, ho maintained, Ihe
franchise Is nol granted to the majority of the lower orders. There aro
thousands roaming about today who
cannot vote. They are the migratory
workers who are growing In numbers
and in liui'.orlaiu'o. They have to move
on iii'toiiiit of the seasonal occupations, such iih lumbering, llslilug, and
harvesting. Others, the useless capitalists, who are doing no good to their
country and never will, are allowed
to vole Now Canada Is owned hy
Uncle Ham. Capitalism has broken
national boundaries, and has divided
tho world into two nations, the owners and tho owned.
In concluding Mr. Windle stated that
"the soenor the workers aro organlaed
to take over the Industries of the
world, the better It will be for all
Prof. P. A. Boving, of tlie Department of Agronomy, addressed an open
meeting of the Biological Discussion
Club on Tuesday evening In Agriculture 100. The subject of his paper
was "Eugenics."
He flrst spoke of the recent alleged
discovery of the missing link and
pointed .out what he thought to be
of g.roatcr Importance—further lies
Hoaroh and fuller knowledge of the
transmission of a single unit character .
He then explained a group of pictures of vegetables anil told of his
researches In the subject of plant
crosses covering a period of thirty
yours. He believes that the disfigurations found to be Inherited In these
crosses of different species of turnips
nre analogous lo the variations found
In the racial crosses In Man. He haa
found in his work that after Buch a
cross has been made those Irregularities still crop out after twenty generations of pure breeding,
Continuing he pointed out that race
crossing waa always followed by a
strong susceptibility to tuberculosa
and gave statistics taken from record^
of Jewish—Gentile crosses and Nordlo
and non-Nordic cronses. Two interesting pedigrees were given of Nordic
crosses with Mongolian and Ugrlan ln
which the resulting Individuals "lacked balance," but the Individuals from
pure inatlngs of the same parents
wore perfectly normal.
The speaker then turned to the
problems of the "melting pot" of the
United States and showed how/some
races may be mixed but others can
not. Ho believes that genetic mat-
logs can be better understood and
brought about after bio-chemlsts have
done further work on the composition
and grouping of the blood because
there seems to be some definite relationship between the blood and
racial divisions.
Prof. Boving then answered questions of various members of tho audience, The meeting concluded with
a very hearty vote of thanks to Prof.

A new sport has been added to the
long list of Varsity activities, namo-
ly roller skating. Whether thla la the
result of manly fears about the ride
home after the leap year dunce or Is
merely a sign of the approach of
spring, la a doubtful point. Nevertheless the sport Is rapidly gaining in
popularity. Last week the number of
people taking part Increased 100 per
cent., bringing the total to two, This
week up to date has witnessed another 150 per cent, increase, In a
month or so we may confidently expect to hour of the formation of a
Roller Skating Club, and witness Its
struggles to be recognized by the renovated L. a. D.—unless that body
has relormed and will accept anything
that Is offered.
The spirit of emulation Is always
strong ao that soon the Sclencomon,
roused by Jealousy, will probably be
patrolling the roads on shooters while
the Aggies will come sailing forth
on "klddy-cara."
And then there will be no need for
a Muck-Page.
If the Freshmen use kewples In
their Valentine decorations, It would
be greatly appreciated If they would
lie ribbons around them to prevent
any suggestion of vulgajrlty. (Remember, responsible members of upper years must be consulted).

Weep, gentle readers, softly weep.
It Is a doleful tale I tell
Of broken hearts and woe most deep;
Of perfidy and actions fell.
Far famous In that Leghorn hen,
Hen No. 6, of fowls the chief;
Yet there are such degraded men
For yellow gold they bring ber grief.
Oh, how hor mother's heart is wrung
As one by one her offspring go,—
Sold for vile droaa, How long unhung
Will live the cauaers ot her woe?
Some hundreds ot her children gone!
What if she has two thousand left?
The missing ones she broods upon.
Alas poor noble soul bereft.
Men must have hearts as hard as rock
To look unmoved upon her pain,
As she takes sad leave of her flock
Whom she will never see again.
The crystal tears flow down her cheek,
And pale with anguish is her comb.
She softly clucks with trembllrg beak.
She does not know why chicks leave
Can we permit this?    Never!  No!
Why do ye Aggies tarry here?
To arms!    The tyrants overthrow.
Restore our Hen her offspring dear.

What is the narrow heel ?
The uncopyable "VARSITY" narrow heel fitting
is a matter of designing, something that goes into
the shoe when the pencil first touches paper to
produce another smart "VARSITY" style. It is
the scientific way of building not merely the heel
underneath the sole, but the entire back part of
the shoe. It is a trick in sloping the heel, so that
the more weight you put in it, the tighter it clings
at top and instep, at the heel and sides.
That's why "VARSITY"{smartly styled oxfords
fit and keep their smartness.

First Aid Room
Serves Students
Hidden away in the Auditorium
building la the graduating gift of the
classes of '27 given to the University.
Seldom has a olaas ao fittingly given
expression to a benevolent idea to
aid thetr fellow students for the gift
waa the Institution of a first aid department One enters the Auditorium by the main door, mounts the
stairs to the right, and walks to the
end of a small hall. Here one la
confronted with a door which, upon
being opened, discloses an antechamber furnlahed with six chalra,
clothes' hooks, and a odour of chemicals so Intimately connected with
gashed and bleeding bodies. Throe
rooms lead off from the ante-chambor,
an office, a rest room, and a laboratory. Over this small domain relgua
Mrs. 0. A. Lucas a very efficient and
competent nurse.
Since coming to the Point the University had been without a flrat aid
department whioh oould treat thoae
small injuries Inflicted on the playing
field or around the grounds, ao the
classes ot '27 were inspired by tbe
deficiency to remedy lt. Mrs Lucas'
work Inoludes families living on the
endowment lands as well as the University Hill school. She has been
appointed to look after the general
health and welfare of the student
body and also to give advice to the
students. Any aid received from her
•ither ln the shape of medical attendance or advice is given absolutely
free ot charge.
The popularity of this little hospital
and its energetio guardian has been
steadily increasing. In Its flrst
month forty-nine patients were treat*
ed, one hundred and thirteen drees*
togs and treatments were given and
sixty-three consultations ocourred.
These latter are carried on with the
utmost secrecy and only statistical reports are made, students are urged
to make use of these conveniences
as freely as they wish. So tar the
rugby olub has been the chief patron*
Iser of this hospital and the girls
playing games have made valuable
use ot it. Any student feeling that
some terrible malady is slowly creeping upon him or her, will be given a
warm welcome and sound practical
Mrs. Lucas in an interview asked
that future graduating classes remember that the hospital needs any
assistance they would offer as the
work is atlll in the making.
At the Track Club Meeting on Wednesday noon it waa decided that the
Cross-country Race will be held next
Wednesday, February 8th. It ia hoped
to get a good crowd out for tbe event,
aa the Club ia trying its best to build
up thia game.
Bob Granger waa on hand, and lt
was announced that he will be the
coach in future. Bob is more than
willing to do his share, so it is up to
the boys to turn out and do the rest.
He is anxious to get in touch with all
the men aa soon as possible to arrange suitable hours for coaching.
It was decided, on account of the
game In the afternoon, to hold the
Arts '20 relay on the morning of Feb.
29th. If 11 I'clock lectures can he
cancelled the race will start at 11:.'ill.
II this cannot be arranged the event
will be held shortly after 12 noon.

On Saturday night at Normal Qym.
tho Invaders from the Sleepy City will
sample a real evening's entertainment,
staged as only the Varsity Basketball
Club can stage auch an event. There
will be three basketball games to
begin with, and afterwards one of
the famous Basketball Dances during
which friendships, started at Victoria,
can be renewed,
At 7 o'clock the Intermediate B
crew will hook up with the boys from
across the water, In what promises
to be an Interesting tussle. In Vic
tor la the teama were evenly match
ed, so to-morrow night, when Varsity
has their full ar/uad on hand, a real
fight is expected.
Senior B women, who are at present showing the way in the local
league, will oppose a Victoria College
outfit in the second game. The girls
lost a close game at Victoria and are
out for revenge this trip. The Capitals play a faat, snappy-passing game,
ao the contest will not be a walkaway.
In the third struggle the Senior B
men will take on one of the city teams
In an exhibition fixture The locals
are at tho top of tholr form at present, and should provide good entertainment.
When the final blast of the whtetle
has sounded, peace will be declared
and gladiators and spectators will
mingle to enjoy the remaining part
of the program.
A record crowd of local Valentino's
is expected to he on hand, to do their
duty ns hosts, and show the heroes
of the "Great Beyond" Just how the
Varsity Drag Is achieved. Harold
King and his gang will provide the
be city champions and have the opportunity of competing against Victoria
for the Rounsfell Cup.
The main event will have, aa a curtain-raiser, the return tussle between
Victoria College and Varsity Intermediates, which is scheduled for 2:00
p.m. The lads from the island are all
set to take the local crew into camp
and thus make it positive that they
are the superior team. The local
squad, on the other hand Intends to
have something to say about tho matter, although badly beaten during the
Viotorla Invasion, Tho Intermediates
did not field their regular team, but
rather a pick-up aggregation. Tomorrow, however, they will have their
regular team on hand aud expect to
give the invaders a big tussle, Tho
Intermediates have heen going
through some strenuous practises lately and should be lu good condition for
a win.
In preparation for the coming fixture
with tho Vancouver Hep on February
11th, the Miracle Men have again
started strenuous workouts and urn

Dean Brock Speaks
on Vocation Choice
"Don't go for the job with the most
money," Dean Brock told his audience on Wednesday, while speaking
to the men to assist them in choosing their vocations. "Money isn't
everything," he said. The Dean went
on to explain that the luxury that
money would bring could never satisfy man's des.re for the higher needs.
Money is only the measure of success
that other men judge our successes
by, the audience waa told. Dissatisfaction could be the only result from
taking money before our own personal desires. A mail who becomes
il coal dealer, because there is money
lu thai particular line, Instead of being a geologist will live a life of
"Canada, being a young country,
affords many openings for young
men," the Dean said. This does not
nieiiii employers will clamour to He-
cure the services of the graduate.
"Young men should chooso the profession where there are fow openings rather than many," the Dean
said, He remembered in Oklahoma,
during the oil boom, that out of a
University of 1400 students, 1350 of
them became geologists. They were
attracted by the high wages at the
time, and later found themselves In
a crowded profession, Juat as civil
engineers were "left" In Canada after
the railway boom.
"Remember," said Dean Brock In
closing, "that man doesn't mind work,
and that recreation la only a pleasure
when It ia an interlude from labour.
So the thing to do Is to study one's
tastes, and then follow them. This
Is the way to find the greatest Joy
in life."
The next lecture of this serines—
"The Choosing of a Vocation," will be
given on Monday at 12.05 o'clock In
the Applied Science Building.
Hazen Nunn Gives
Interesting Lecture
"Mountain peaks seen from U.B.C."
was the subject ot an Illustrated lecture given by Hazen Nunn of the
Outdoor's club, Wednesday afternoon.
Before beginning the main part of
hla lecture, the apeaker showed
several slides of mountaineering on the
North Vancouver mountains In the
early days. An Interesting slide was
that of the first party to climb Ooat
Mountain, In 1894. Another slide
which caused a laugh to spread
through the audience, was that of a
snowball fight on Qrouse Mountain
Plateau in "the good old days." A
view of Vancouver thirty-five years
ago taken from the same plateau
showed how the city has grown, A
small cabin, the place of rest for
travellers many years ago, formed a
striking contrast to the new chalet
on Grouse Plateau. Several slides
served to illustrate the peculiar rock
formation on the mountains.
Tho main part of the lecture took
the form of a contest In which the
audience had to Ruess the names of
forty peaks which were flashed on
the screen. All these mountains are
visible from tho University, but most
of the audience found difficulty in
miming them. Even (irouso Mountain
wan not, recognized by several. Dalt
Watson, secretary of the Outdoor's
Club, carried off the prize amid the
applause of the other contestants.
Tho forty slides were then shown
again, while Mr. Nunn announced the
name of each peak. The meeting
closed after a vote of thanks to tho
speaker had boon moved by Bert
Carpenter and heartily seconded by
the audience.
There will be a meeting of the
Scribes of Thoth on Friday, February
3rd, at 12.10 in Arta 207. All the
members are requested to attend as
it must be decided when and where
the Club will meet, and of what its
future programme will consist,

he want, oh so terribly, to know what
you are going to do to-night? Because he Is just, overbrimming with

you how you can enjoy yourself thla

hlni toll you In what real enjoyment
Real enjoyment Is a state of mind
enjoyed by one who lets his or her
playful Impulses full rein, to the exclusion of all worldly cares and worries. It comes best lo a group of
young people who gather together for
the express purpose of playing. The
less the group feels restricted by
formalities, tlie less It prepares for
this actual play, (he more heartily
does It enter into a spirit of the affair.
And so it is, thnt If you have not
thought of preparing for any affair
"or function" to-night; if you have
not made a date for to-night, the
greater are your chances of enjoying
yourself to-night. How are you to
spend the evening? Not by studying,
you've been doing that all week. Not
by going to the show—you've done
nothing but sit in a chair all week.
No. You will go home about 6, you
will ring up a couple of fellows, and
you will propose that they get up a
party to go to the dance for Victoria
in the Winter Oardena. What! at
thia late hour? they will say, why certainly. The girls are not booked for
anything to-night, they will appreciate
the fact that the whole dance Is going
to be characterized by that frank
spontaneity. Moreover, they will have
read this questionnaire, (won't you,
girls?), and they will know that just
such a dance aa to-night's is the only
one where they can enjoy themselves.
Consequently, when you ring up one
or those good old pals whom you have
been neglecting lately, and you say:
"Hello, Mary, this Is (Johnny), Bay,
I've been thinking—how about taking
In the Victoria dance to-night; I know
its darn late, but I never thought of
it till now;" she will reply, "Sure
thing (John); that's a swell Idea. I
hear its going to be loads of fun."
Think about It for a minute 1 All
you have to do Is remember the time,
9 till 1; and the place, Winter Garden. The admission, fifty cents per
person, at. the door. Where is the
logical place to go to-night?
