Actors Carry Off Honors in Christmas
Plays: Performanca Proves Successful
"TK flfflW ftm" MSITNUS UHflEltTAMM
The large audience that attended the opening of the Christmas plays
la the auditorium laat uight with the eagerness and curiosity of regular
"Irst-nlghters." had a great many expectations realised by the program
presented to them by the University Players' Club. The three ploys, "The
Flying Prince," "the Invention of Dr. Metcler," and "Cootie Consequences"
met with an appreciable reception aa regards both the acting and the pro*
"Cootie Consequences,*' by which the authoress, Miss Norma King won
tht Players' Club prise tor this yoor, culminated the program. Its presentation proved on the whole popular, but the audience seemed disposed to
regard it more in tbe nature of a skit, as the laughter It merited was
remindful ot that given a burlesque, The action takes placo in one aot,
representing a group of cow-punchers camping on a desert, forty miles from
tin nearest town. "Shorty," who has inadvertently raised with an Indian
'Urate ot unclean repute, discovers that he gad his clothes are infested
With Ilea. The climax oi the farce culminates from the fact that he Is
forced to de-robe and parboil his
clothes as a aeane of sahltat on,
wearing in the meanwhile his "alios-
ir." Between these events however,
ho and his companion, "Pot," succeed
la outwitting two rascals from the city
who threaten them with guns and
demand lubricating oil for their car
"Shorty" and "Pot" win a suitable
reward at the hands ot the Sheriff
and the farce closes in a dramatic
fashion wjthJ'Worty" sadly disillus*
lontd about bis de-loused raiments.
The entire oast were given all the
eredit due them but it was felt that
farce did not offer an opportunity
worthy ot the taints of those| Pterins
la it. Qrtrille Rowland as "Shorty"
•ad Roderick McRat as "Pot'' per*
formed excellently, while Howard
Bowes and Malcolm Pretty were
really startling as the two gun-men.
Viator Hill played Sheriff Summers
very capably and David MacDonald
M "Ham" with John Morse as
%indy," portrayed the hard-boiled
©ow-puncher with great skill.
The nekt play, "The Invention of
Or. Mower," was Intensely realistic.
The atmosphere of an old-world Austrian family, the character of Dr.
Ifetsler, tbe dramatic appearance ol
h fugitive Hungarian officer from the
ioone of battle not many miles away,
ate appeal to the feelings of the Doctor and the tragic climax was a performance deserving much praise.
Stage and lighting effects were all
good, These many excellencies help-

Tolmie to Unveil
Memorial Window
The unveiling of the Canadian Jubilee Memorial window in the Library
will take place next Wednesday, Immediately after the Graduation ceremonies to be held In tho Auditorium.
Premier Tolmie will unveil the beautiful stained-gloss window, which is ln
commemoration ot tbe completion ot
tbe sixty years of national life which
Canada baa enjoyed.
Tbe window is composed of nine
panels, and faces the concourse of
the inner hall of the Library building. The legend inscribed on tho
window lo "Canadian Jubilee Memorial. 1887-1927." The ground work ot
the design is a series of squares in
three shades of antique amber glass.
Let Into each panel are the arms ot
eight of tbe nine provinces of Canada,
With tbe arms of the Dominion in the
central panel. Bach of the coats ot
arms of the provinces is surrounded
by a wreath characteristic of the province.
From left to right they are arranged
as follows: Alberta, a wreath of
prairie rosea; Saskatchewan, entwined wheat plants; Manitoba, anemono
patens; Ontario, maple leaves In autumn colouring; the Dominion, her
ooat-of-orms; Quebec, the blue flag:
New Brunswick, pine leaves and
cones; Prince Edward Island, the foxglove, and Nova Scotia, apple leaves
and blossoms.
This beautiful window was designed
by Messrs. Sharpe and Thompson, architects for the University, and was
subsequently modified by the Brotns-
grove Ootid in consultation with Mr.
Ridington, the Librarian. The contract for the work was given the Canadian branch ot the guild ln Montreal,

The problem of racial differences
from the eugenlst's viewpoint was
discussed by Dr. A. H. Hutchinson at
the Students Christian Movoment
meeting on Tuesday noon in Agrlc.
In analyzing hla subject Dr. Hutchinson showed that tho question of
racial differences involves three other
problems: the unification ot races,
the ways in which racial characteristics are developed and continued, and
With regard to the first of these,
the unification of races, two views are
held. One group of eugenists believes
that theso should be homogeneity;
that every race should bo brought,
either up or down ln order to conform
to one standard, and thut this could
be accomplished through unifying the
parts of the race.
The other view ls that the differentiation of races has been along the
line of biological development, and In
developing special capabilities and potentialities each has come to fill a
place ln the economy of races. Hence,
to quote thn speaker, "The unification
of races Is not so much bringing all to
the samo standard as In allowing them
to develop special characteristics."
An actual experiment of unification
has heen carried on by the people of
the United States, for the purpose of
the "melting pot" was to bring about
one race. This policy Is advantageous
when the characteristics of the different races can he co-ordinated. In the
case of the * American people every
stock has made a definite cultural contribution.
The second problem, ways of developing and continuing racial characteristics, has not yet beeu solved altogether satisfactorily. In the first
place, scientists do not agree upon
the extent of contributions to races
of either environment or heredity.
Then, scientists are divided in their
opinions on whether environment Influences certain Individuals only or
races as a whole. It was shown that
if the latter case were true negro
races are the result of transmission
through many generations of the acquired characteristic of dark pigmentation. The former view, however,
Is more, generally uccepfed by eugenists to-day.
"Environment ls o.f Importance only
In the development of the Individual,
and not of the race," stated Dr. Hutch-
lnson.    "Rut environment acts as a

Varsity's Senior "A" men continued
their fight toward the championship
when they took the Meralomas Into
camp, 20-16, at the V.A.C. gym on
Wednesday night. The clubbers put
up a stlffer game than was expected
and it was an off night for the local
lads. Mayers was a little off form,
and was held to two points on free
throws by the hard checking Lythgoe.
Neither team played a fast dashing
game, both being content to wait for
the breaks. At half the score Was
18-11 for Varsity. Meralomas were
the flrst to count, but the Blue came
right back and took the lead.
The second half was a bit ragged,
little real basketball being displayed.
Horton and McEwen made some nico
shots and between them tailted 13 ot
the team's points. Meralomas kept
pressing and were dangerous up to
the whistle.
The line-ups were: Meralomas—
Hall (4), Clark (5), Cameron (4),
Armstrong, Lythgoe, Rolling (3), and
Kay. Varsity—Mayers (2), Horton
(5), McEwen (S), Henderson (1), MacDonald   (2), Akerly   (2),
Alberta and U.B.C. Stage Spectacular
Encounter in Inter-Collegiate Game
Sen 21-11 ia Fwht rt MUrtt; lets tun
Wednesday afternoon saw the beginning of tbe flrst Western Canada
Inter* Collegiate Rugby Championship played In Vancouver, when the University of Alborta Canadian Rugby team defeated the local college by a score
of 20*11. The actual play was about as even as possible, Alberta getting
their lead with a tew brooks. B. C. gained consistent ground and at on*
time during the first quarter had possession of the ball for ten successive
downs which ended tn a touch.
Word has been received from a reliable source that Charlie Wentworth
will be seen In aotlon on Saturday. This comes as a decided surprise as
it was understood that the Injuries which he sustained to his shoulder In
the last Vanoouver gome would keep him off the field until next year, bat
the authorities ruokoned without Mr. Wentworth—it has been found impossible to keep him out of uniform any longer.
The prairie men In Wednesday's game showed that they were unaccustomed to a soft field, the ends missing their objectives on several occasions.
The much-touted "stone wall" maintained its reputation and Alberta gained
 — "^-^  most of their yards on end runs.
Freddy Hess, the U. of A. star*
lived up to his advance notices, tallying 19 out of 20 points. If he had
not been among those present the
result of the game might have been
a different story. His flashy speed
and oteady kicking were an integral
factor in the game and Alberta playo
were almost built around him.
The mental hasard of not knowing
what to expect undoubtedly handicapped the Vancouver Collegians and
the outlook for next Saturday's fixture
is optimistic, in view of Wednesday's
experience. It cannot be said that
the Alberta aggregation is the better
team, as individuals play a greater
part with them than is the case with
the B, C, squad.
The game was started With Dead
R. W. Brock's formal kick-off. fc.0,
then kicked off into the sun and Alberta went down on their 46-yard Hue.
Immediately things started to happen,
On their flrst down, Mickey Timothy
went around right end for a beautiful gain of 60 yards, which dropped
the ball five short yards from the
Varsity line. Qua Runge was the
next battler to storm the B. C. citadel
Bud. he «o*ered three yards wit* a
buck. The famous Freddy then tore
through left end for tbe flrst score,
barely three minutes from the kick-
off. He failed to convert. Orouer
gained 21 counters with two bucks
but Varsity lost possession When Qittus sent a wild pass in the direction
df Dirom. The feature of the next
few plays was Shield's fake kick
which annexed 35 yards. In ten
downs B. C. carried the ball right up
to the Alberta line and Dirom went
over for a touch which Shields failed
to convert. At the end of the Quarter Shields fumbled one of Hess's
punts and Hayes booted the turf to
register a deadline kick, making the
score 6-5 for Alberta.
When the next period was well-
started, Shandro went, down behind
his own line on a kick from Shields,
the rouge evening up the score. Hess
scored a deadline counter some minutes later. The frame came to an
ond with the ball on the Alberta 45-
line; the score, Alberta 7—B.C. 6.
After the commencement, of the second half, Hess got away onco again,
running 25 yarda for a touch which
he personally converted. Varsity replied when Shields dropped behind
the Alberta posts. Shields failed to
convert Immediately afterwards
Hess figured ln a spectacular 40-yard
run for still another score, which he
failed to convert. The quarter ended
with the score 18-11 for Alberta,
In the last period, the only tallies
were  two  deadline  kicks  from  the

Prow HuAdei'H: Barbara Ashby and Vornou vim Hick In,
Within the past year students have seen one of the most
remarkable developments of an athletic team ln the history of
University sport. We refer of course to Canadian Rugby, tast
year at this time Canadian Rugby was only a minor sport but
through its Increasing high standard of play and the tireless
energy of the officials of this club it was, after a considerable
struggle, promoted to the status of a major sport.
We wish to congratulate members of the Canadian Rugby
Club on Justifying the faith of those students who raised it to
this status, There are few clubs who have worked so consistently and strived so hard to make a name for themselves in
University sport and it is with no small feeling of respect that
we nave seen Canadian Rugby embark on the first of its series
of inter-colleglate competitions.
The game which was witnessed on Wednesday afternoon
was one to be proud of. Not only does the fight put up by our
team augur well for its future progress but also the student
support accorded it is ample proof of its growing popularity.
Now that the Christmas examinations are looming up as
coming events, it is timely to say what we think of examinations
in general, Under the present system, examinations are practically the sole means of Judging the work of a university student.
What does it mean?
It means that the University of British Columbia encourages
scholastic achievement as the one thing necessary in a university graduate, and often this achievement is encouraged at the
expense of other possibilities which are latent in the student.
The present examination system would perhaps be all right if
scholastic achievement were the sole aim of the University, but
having listened to various lectures from those in charge of University work we feel that the University of British Columbia aims
at something more than this.
Moreover, we belive the people of British Columbia have* encouraged us to attend this institution ln order that we may be
trained as future leaders and citizens of our country.
What are the qualities necessary in a leader or citizen?
Obviously scholarship in its various branches is one of the essential qualities, but are there not others which are almost as important?
Clean living, athletic activity, self-sacriflce, courage,
idealism, and all the factors which go to make a healthy citizen
are permitted at the University, but they are not officially encouraged.
Why should not the University of British Columbia lead
other universities in evolving a more thorough system of judging
than is at present used? Could not all students be judged more
along the lines on which candidates for the Rhodes scholarship
are judged? Even if such a system involved the cost of maintaining a permanent "examination committee," surely the results
would justify the increased cost. And if this "examination committee" would organize and co-operate with student organizations much of its work could be eliminated.
If such a sysetm were adopted, students could be judged
according to their Interpretation of the Honor System, their
record in scholastic examinations, their activity in athletics,
their originality, and in fact in everything that would be deemed
necessary in the preparation of a future citizen.
The next meeting of "Der Deutsche
Verein" will be held at the home of
Miss Hallamore, 1930 Quilchena Crescent. Take Marpole Interurban leaving the Davie St. station at 7:30 and
get off at Strathcona East.
An enjoyable meeting of the club
wns held November 12, at the home
ot Mrs. Harris' parents. German anecdotes, related by every member and
the reading of a German Ballad, together with games and songs, constituted the programme for the evening.
The final meeting of the Classics
Club for this term was held on Wednesday evening at the home of Mr.
Logan, McOlll road.
Tho meeting was opened by the
singing of O Canada In Latin, after
which Miss Olive Mouat read a paper
on Famous Exiles. A discussion of
the paper was followed by the singing of several Latin Bongs, and the
reading of a delightful verse translation by Mr. Rlddehough. The serving of refreshments concluded a
thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Christian Union will be held on Monday, November 26, In Arts 204 at 12:10
o'clock. The speaker will be Rev.
W. Bills, M.A., B.D. ot Toronto University and principal of the Vancouver

Rev. Mr. Ellis is an excellent speaker
and extremely competent of dealing
with this subject ot which he has a
wide knowledge.
In view of Its Importance and particular Interest to Varsity students

The third meeting of le Cercle
'Alouette" took place at the home of

monarchy, are often contused.
The speaker explained the national
flags of Jugo Slavia and Cgecho-Slo-
vakla with reference to the legend*
and traditions of these countries.
Later tn the discussion which followed
the question of the use of Esperant
was raised. In Mr. Raymer's opinion,
this new language will not be success-
ful since the neod for one Is quickly
decreasing. He believed that English
was being learned everywhere and

Delivering Electricity
costs more
than Generating"
IT is the cost of transmission and distribution
systems that makes electricity cost more in
your home than at the power house switchboard.
In an average system, tlie power plant costs $190
a horse power whiie the transmission and distribution lines cost $1)0 more.
Most of the distribution system—the substations
and the power iines—are required by the small
customer. That is one reason why electric service
costs more in small quantities than in Urge.

Door Sir:
In accepting on appointment to act
on the University Committee of Military Education, Mr. Tolmie has acted
contrary to the expressed wishes of
the members of the Alma Mater Society, and hat broken faith with tbe
students of this university.
For the benefit of all the students,
and for those especially who entered
the university this year, let me state
the situation briefly. Last year the
members of the Alma Mater Society
passed, by a majority of over two to
one, a resolution opposing the formation of a C.O.T.C. on the campus. Not
only was this motion carried by auch
a great majority, but the vote of the
men considered alone was decidedly
In favor of the resolution. The same
atudent body that passed this resolution elected Mr. Tolmie as president
ot the Alma Mater Society. Without
flrst ascertaining whether or not student opinion has changed, Mr. Tolmie
has accepted an appointment by the
Senate to aot on a university Committee tor Military Education with the
idea of forming a C.O.T.C. on a differ*
ent basis than was originally pro*
posed, thereby deliberately ignoring
and over-riding the expressed wishes
of the students who elected him to
office. •
These are tbe facts of the situation
as it now stands. I leave lt to tbe
readers of the "Ubyssey" to decide
whether or not my criticism ot the
president of the Alma Mater Society
is just.
Yours truly,
The Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
Re Mr. Ross Tolmle's letter ot recent date justifying his position as a
member of the committee for the
direction of the U. B. C, 0. 0 T. C.
yourself and Mr. Underbill are certainly correct ln your attitude and Mr.
Tolmie has misapprehended the intention Of his office. His acceptance
of the presidency of the Alma Mater
Society entailed the maintenance of
the ideals, traditions, and opinions of
the student body. Any lack of con-
fomity thereto violates the duties of
his office and forfeits student confidence.
The writer ls not concerned with
the question of the formation of a
C. O. T. C. The intention is to point
out that Mr. Tolmie has no conceivable tight to represent the student
body on a committee which lt has
held to be undesirable. That sanction may be forthcoming shortly but
until It does his action is a slap in
the face of those whom he represents.
1 am,
Yours, etc..
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
It ls Indeed lamentable that Senate
ls permitting a reorganization ot the
C.O.T.C for although there is undoubtedly a gain ln the new courses in
mathematics and first-aid given to
swaggering students in new uniforms,
yet boys will be boys and we must
look for a decrease In the gamo of
this Province when these kids are
shown how lo handle rides (unless,
of course, they all shoot each other
But aside irom levity: do the students realize what the C.O.T.O. will
mean to them? Do they realize that
in all probability the unit will wish
to use our gymnasium for drill-hall
and store-room? Do they realize that
every student—woman as well as man
—ls morally responsible If this organization ls granted the use of the University name? No, Mr. Editor, they
can not realize this If they permit tho
re-organization of the C.O.T.C.
The Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
As one who opposes the formation
of a unit of the Canadian Officers
Training Corps on our campus, I feel
that I should Btate my reasons for so
I am strongly of tho opinion that
lack of unity in the control of our
University affairs can only bring about
turmoil and dissatisfaction among the
students. So far our Alma Mater Society has seen fit to oppose the fonn-
,atlon of a C.O.T.C, yet we find our
President acting on a committee to
uphold a contrary opinion. One of
the first conditions required for a successful democratic government,
whether In our National or Student
life, ls that the elected fairly represent tho opinions ot the electors.
Secondly, it Is claimed that the control of the C.O.T.C. ts to be wholly In
the Military Education Committee. I
must say, Mr. Editor, that lt requires
a strong stretch ot imagination to
have even the remotest hope that the
Military Department will hand over
the control of the C.O.T.C. to a University Committee. What would the
Department do in regard to the rules
and regulations set out ln the
"Manual of 1924 with Amendments?"
To anyone who has had any experience ln such matters the only answer
seems to be** regulations are to be
obeyed and not discussed. How many
thinking-students would be willing to
submerge all their ideals and privileges and agree to accept any amendment to these regulations without
question? The whole procedure ls
utterly incompatible wtth the ideals
of higher education. Let us retain
our unique place among Universities,
and too, some measure of freedom
from outside control.
A returned soldier expressed his
opinion ot the last war lu the following lines:
So this is what Is called the war,
This murder, blood and lust,
We're scientific savages,
Just underneath the crust.
—"2571" in "Stand to."
Surely we who should bo forming
an intelligent body of public opinion
in our generation could turn our
minds to more profitable things than
to the developments of a finely organ
Ised war-machine.
Yours truly,
Bdltor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
May 1 be permitted to state some
of my reasons for thinking it to be tbe
duty of the student body to oppose the
re*organl>ation of the C.O.T.C. at this
Obviously the Senate has power to
re-organize the C.O.T.C. it it wishes;
hut that is no reason why the Alma
Mater Society should not keep before
the Senate the fact that the Society,
as an organisation, has opposed, and
is still opposed to, the C.O.T.C. Not
to do so can only Mean to the general public that there exists no body of
student opinion, or that, if opinion
does exist, the student body lacks tbe
moral courage to express itself.
Most thinking people to-day agree
that world peace IS a thing to be very
greatly desired. But do they not also
realise that certain strong forces are
still at work whioh tend to bring about
another great war? This being tbe
case, can we afford to sentimentalise
about peace while doing nothing to
promote lt?
Has lt not been amply demonstrated
by past experience that preparedness
in physical armaments and in the
mental attitude of the people has
been one of the great causes of war?
We cannot deny that the CAT.C,
definitely sponsors a program of military education—a program of preparedness, and ln doing so will bave on
effect on the young men and women
entering our University. We owe It
to ourselves to keep our minds untainted with militarism. Wo owe it to
those who are working for peace In
the councils of tbe nations to stand
opposed to the growth of militarism
ln any form.
Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
Perhaps you were surprised to hear
very little from the Okanagan on
Theatre nlght-~we were not dead, at
least most of us were not.
We had planned :i "Consolidated
Re-union," as It were, for November
17, and It was a success. We had a
wonderful time, lt was held at Eldorado Anns, a lovely "inn" a few
miles from Kelowna. Tea at four,
when everyone met everybody and
talked of tho good old days at U.B.C.
At 7 we enjoyed a vory appetising
banquet. A toast to the "Alma Mater" by A. S. Powell, a graduate of the
Bummer Session, was replied to ln
the beat possible fashion by a rousing "Kitsilano."
Then followed a most hilarious
dance which Included "snake dances"
and other weird entertainments. It
was with much regret by all present
that the affair concluded at midnight.
The Re-union was arranged by
Chap. Qaddes, Arts '25, Elsie Ritance,
Arts '25, nnd A. S. Powell, Summer
Session, assisted by the other Alumni at Kelowna. The arrangements
were excellant and the Kelowna Alumni are to bo congratulated as perfect
Chap. Gaddes was unfortunately Injured In a motor accident on the 16th
and was unable to be present.
Among those present were:
Elsie Ritance, Arts '25; A. S. Towell,
Summer Session; Barbara Stirling,

selective factor, and this explains why
negroes are present in hot countries."
The third problem, intermarriage, is
very complex. The crossing of races
results in a recombination ot the
characters of the two. This is either
advantageous or harmful, depending
on whether the characters are compatible or not. In tbe case of Its proving harmful the races should not
mingle, but should develop separately
their own potentialities and individualities.
The meeting closed with a vote of
thanks to Dr. Hutchinson for his very
interesting and Instructive address,
Memorial Window
(Continued from Page \)
and tho work was executed in England.   The cost of the window ls sixteen hundred dollars.
This Jubilee Memorial window is
the gift ot a friend of the University
who desires to remain anonymous. It
will indeed add greatly to the beauty
of the University Library building.
The gift is greatly appreciated by the
board ot Governors, the Senate and
the University at large.
It ia worthy ot note that the Graduation ceremonies which will be held
next Wednesday are to take the form
of a public function^ In previous
years, none but tbe Faculty and par*
ticlpatlng students were allowed to
attend, so that this is the first time
the student body as a whole will be
privileged to witness the conferring
of the B.A. degree. An address on
Canada's sixty years ot national progress will be given by Professor D. C,

Dear Sir:
It has been brought to the attention
of the Inter-Fraternity Council that
there ls a feoling prevalent among the
students that theru ls too much secrecy ln connection with the Board.
For the benefit of those students
who are Interested we would like to
say that the minutes of the Council
are open for inspection at all times
in the Student's Council's office.
We trust this will help to clear

Dear Sir:
By means of your correspondence
column I should like to make the fact
known that I can not support, as a
member of the Publications Board,
the recent editorials which have heen
the product of your pen. I refer to
those entitled: "Sounding Braes and
Tinkling Cymbals;" "Integration or
Disintegration?"; and the one which,
under your Initials, appears to-day.
That you are fair and absolutely
Impartial on most questions 1 admit;
but your references to fraternities and
sororities and your advocacy of a non-
fraternity member for the Inter-fra-
ternlty and Intel sorority Councils I
It Is also my opinion that your editorials express impractical Ideas and
reveal you as being on Utopian.
This letter, as you know, Is not to
be considered by anyone as being Inimical. I dislike your policy; but I
hope I may remain your friend no
matter what you advocate,
Yours truly,

'more startling to the spectators.
In this, as tho first, it is hard to
discriminate botwoen the performers.
Mary Stewart as Rosa von West the
widow of an Austrian officer, waa
magnificent, which also can be said
of Alexander Smith In the chief role
of the calculating doctor. Anatole
Zaitzeff brought reminiscences of
many a Hungarian officer lu real life,
and Laurence Meredith as the Austrian, although he was perhaps not
brtttal enough, was nevertheless thoroughly convincing. Jean Salter, as
Fauny the maid also deserved praise
for her work.
The first play, "The Flying Prince,"
was a thing of sheer beauty. It ls
described as a fantasy but perhaps
a fairy tale, delightful ln its simplicty
and beauty, with a peculiarly restful, dialogue might be allowed to describe it
For an amateur undertaking it was
indeed ambitious and the Players'
Olub have set an extraordinary high
atandard in their work through the
medium of Its success. The theme
represents the curious mixture ot the
Old World with the New. It would
be useless to attempt to describe Its
delightful sequences.

queen, Jack Hamilton the king, Isabel Yarrow, Annette, the lady-ln-walt-
ing, and Jefioi'y Woodworth, the minister.
The work ot Vivian Hood, and William Plommer, "The Flying Prince,"
was especially to be praised but they
were excellently supported by the
rest of the cast.
The delightful program rendered
all the more delightful by entr'actte
selections by several members of the
Musical Society, left the audience well
satisfied wllth the evening's entertainment; and the Players' Cluh with the
splendid reception of last night still
fresh ia their memories will feel that
