tribes migrated from Asia.   As the
years wore on, eaoh artist striving to
surpass the other in uniqueness, the
designs became more and more exaggerated, and resembled less tbe animals   whioh   they  originally   represented-   Thus art flourished until the
advent of the white man.   Seeing no
hope for the future, the Indians lost
interest In their carving and painting
—and their art, now, is dead forever.
Second Lecture Deale with Songs
"Indian songs are fascinating, human, and intelligible," was the introductory statement of Dr. Barbeau In
his second lecture on Indian author-
pology entitled, "Indian Songs and
Literature," given In Applied Science
100 last Friday at 4 o'clock.
The native mind was richly endowed and not markedly inferior to
ours, so modern research has disclosed. The emotional faculties of
the Indians were well developed and
we are only superior to any great degree In efficiency on the material side
Ifather than on the physical or intellectual sides,
Memory was the only means by
which the Indian songs were preserved through generations. As a re-
suit the Indian literature, ranging
through songs and myths to mystical
narratives, was the possession of the
Ssople at large, and the fruit of a long
sveloped art.
Out ot the thousand songs of Canadian Indiana preserved at Ottawa, between three and four hundred are
from British Columbia. The composers
of these songs generally retained exclusive rights to their compositions
during their lifetime, but after their
death, they paased to public use, and,
If they were popular, were adopted and
preserved all over the country. The
same songs were sometimes found
among tribes so far apart as the Lower
Fraser, Upper Skeena, and even Yukon tribes.
The tunes depended entirely on the
voice, and were often accompanied by
drums or hollowed rattles to emphasise the rhythm. The Salich and
Athabascan tribes of the interior of
British Columbia are among the best
singers in North America.
Past glories and ancestral memories
ware the most usual themes, Love
did not figure so prominently In tbe
Indian songs as In our own, as their
marriages were entirely' arranged by
the elders, the result being a dearth of
Froth Rugby Loses
to ktermediates
Traditions and records of football
went crashing ail over the continent
last Saturday. A gigantic football
worm heaved one big turn, aad teams
which for years had thrashed small
opponents, hit the dust before them
on Saturday. In our own college for
the llrst time since the beginning of
the Frosh rugby team, the Intermediates defeated the Freshmen. Eleven
tames have seen tbe Frosh emerge
with the laurel wreath, but the flrst
game ever to be played on the new
Varsity ground saw the once lowly fu<
tarmediates beat the graenshlrts for a
il-6 victory,
A Strong wind wau blowing with the
Freshmen in the flrst halt immediately leading them to an aerial attack.
Consistent kicking by Helmer forced
the intermediates on the defensive as
their kicks were always returned for
tosses. Deadly tackling by the Fresh*
men ruined Intermediate three-quarter
runs so that they finally resorted to
forward rushes. Feeling begin to run
high and both teams were tackling
vigorously, tittle Kolle on the Frosh
wing, finally broke away for a 30-yeard
run. swung the flrst try, whioh was
unconverted. Undaunted, the Inter*
mediates charged back and after a
pretty Interchange between Pollard
and Bull, the latter went over. Changeover found the teams still tied,
In the second half the wind had
abated and more three-quarter play
was seen. Both teams were determined
to hang up their first victory and
fought like fiends. The black-haired
Parker orashed through the gold-
shlrted backs for a twenty-yard drive,
securing the second Frosh try. Ronny
McKay, captain of last year's Fresh,
then tied (he score by a beautiful solo
effort, outwitting four Freshmen before hitting the dirt. Leask and
Shields then put the game on ice for
the intermediates when they dribbled
the ball over together, McKay making
a nice convert.
Every player on both teams played
a hard game and showed that the
Varsity teams will finish on top of the
league. For the intermediates Pollard
and Bull worked together with fine
understanding, while McKay, Jones
and McMillan showed up well.
Strelght, Parker, Woods and Kolle
were outstanding for the Frosh.
After this game, the Club is trying
to arrange a game between a Varsity
second team and a Vancouver Intermediate rep, team as a curtain raiser
for the big homecoming game between Varsity and Vancouver, and
with the men playing as they did on
Saturday, victory is assured.
The teams were:
Intermediates: Farrlngton, Hundal,
Cunllffe, McKay, Hodglns, Estabrook,
Pollard, Bull, Arnold, McMillan,
Shields, Jones, Woodworth, Wilson,
Leask.
Freshmen: Best, Kolle, Chambers,
Helmer, Ballentlne, Richardson,
Woods, Doherty Mason, Murray, Parker, Strelght, Phillips, Webster.
romance. Love songs can be found,
however, and in one read by Dr. Bar-
beau there was a decided touch of
humor.
Dream or vision songs, relating to
supernatural experiences, were common. These experiences were supposed to have happened to braves
fasting alone in the mountains, and
were probably the results ot the mystical effects ot nature on the Indian
mind.
The myths and folklore of British
Columbian Indians, the oral traditions
of the past, served to train youth and
guide maturity in the tribes, besides
affording entertainment on stormy
winter nights. Many cycles of myths
were built about a spot about two
miles from Haselton on the Skeena
River, which the Indiana regarded In
the light of a paradise lost, brought to
an end by love and crime. Besides examples ot the main themes of the
songs Dr. Barbeau read part of one
of the legends about this place, which
also gave the right of tbe Indian family crests.
At the close of the lecture some
lantern slides were shown of Indian
singers, and the site, near Hasleton,
of the legendary paradise.
VARSITY BEATS KING EDWARD
OLD BOYS-SIX-THREE
Tho Jinx is Broken, ani Varsity Plays Brilliantly to Refisftar
ItsSooondWifi
The rugby teams registered the only
Varaity victories last week-end, Vara*
ity seniors defeating K. B. Old Boys,
1-3,
6-3, while the Intermediates triumphed
over the Frosh by 11-6. Both games
were very hard fought, the winning
scores being registered well on in the
aecond half.
Varsity seniors started with a rush
at the beginning of the game and soon
hid King Edward backed up on their
own lino, but the pressure was relieved
by a Jong kick to touch. Mahon, of
King Edward, thus started several
runs, which forced Varsity on tbe defensive, but Mclnnls finally ran back a
kick in brilliant fashion, going down
with the ball on the opponents twenty-
live yard line. From a resulting scrum
Mclntyre took a hot pass, wove his
way through the King Edward baoks,
deceived the fullback with a fake pass
and went over for a try under the
posts. Qustafson missed an easy eon*
vert.
Varsity were tackling brilliantly,
stopping many threatening runs. Casey
Casselman. former Varsity ace, was
particularly well marked by Noble and
Qustafson and had few opportunities
to do his stuff. Towards the end of
the half King Edward resorted to a
kicking offensive, whioh proved successful, Russell going over near the
flag.  The convert failed.   '
With the score tied, the second half
was particularly hard fought, tbe play
rushing from one end of the field to
the other. Varsity forced the Old Boys
to touchdowns three times, but were
unable to obtain possession first. Both
scrums were working at top speed
with the blue and gold having a slight
edge. Sparkling running by H. Bar-
ratt and Mclntyre for Varsity and
Crone and Mahon for the opposition,
was a feature. The final score resulted
when Mclntyre tore through tor a big
gain, passed to Noble who plowed
through the fullback and who slipped
the ball to Tupper wben finally collared.  Tupper, with two men dinging
to him, Just managed to drag the ball
across the line for the winning paints.
The rest of the game was mainly mid-
field play.
Bert Barrett and Done Mclntyre were
the outstanding baokfleld players.
Brilliant play each game seems to be
usual for Mclntyre, but the younger
Barrett dished up a great surprise
with his faultless performance. Both
gave masterly displays of the fine art
of fake passing and swerving, but with
greatly differing methods. Mclntyre
uses an absolutely expressionless,
rather melancholy poker face to mask
his intentions, but Barrett's usually
bright physog assumes a guileless
vacuous look, typically Freshman,
which completely deceives his opponent into believing him too dumb to
take. Besides this he ted the backs
in excellent style and was seldom
caught with the ball. Either his stellar playing, curly hair or extreme
youth made a big hit with tbe feminine portion of Arts '88 present prior
to their bike, for shrill screams Of
applause rewarded his runs and soft
sighs were heard when some big brute
tackled him violently.
Squiddy Mclnnls had a busy after
noon at fullback, but carried himself
off without a fumble or mlsklck. Tiny
Noble was the shining light in the
scrum, his tackling of the redoubtable Casey being very pleasant for
Varsity supporters to watch. Varsity
has developed Into the best tackling
outfit in the league and Is now well
started on its winning ways.
This game is the flrst this season to
pass without injury. The oW^hoodo*
has at last faded. A singularly bright
Freshman has devised a way to circumvent the old Varsity superstitions
by offering the team his ma'a vacuum
cleaner when their shorts need washing.  Honored be his namel
The team was Mclnnls, Taylor, Tupper, Qustafson, P. Barrett, Mclntyre,
H. Barratt, Locke, Sparks, White, For
rester, Kidd, Noble, Willis, Morris.

Two U.B.C. Teams to
Debate with Idaho
The Idaho-U. B. C. debate takes
place November 11th. All arrangements for the debate have been completed. A two-roan team, composed
of Win. Masterson ond D. Telford, will
go to Moscow, Idaho, while D. Murphy and R. S. Whlteley uphold Varsity's name fit home. The debate subject lb: "Resolved that national prohibition is in the best Interests of
Canada." The home team will take
the affirmative, while the travelling
team will show the advantages of a
"wet" Canada. The four debaters are
well known, with the possible exception of R. S. Whlteley. He Is a recent acquisition from Victoria College, and the select few who heard
the last year Victoria debate will remember his able rebuttal of his present debate partner's arguments In
that contest. The Debates Committee assures the Ubyssey that this will
be one of the most interesting debates of the year.

REGULAT10NS-AND UTILITY
Ott s quiet perusal of Stack and Currell regulations, we are struck
by the advantage that the members of the Faculty enjoy over the
students. The third-year honors class is not entitled to stack-room
, permit*, and fourth-year honors is given only two periods a week.
, Faculty enjoyB twenty.four carrels to the fifteen allotted to students.
, Book loans are of necessity limited to one week for students, whereas
', tne Ftottlty enjoys the unique privilege of an indefinite time limit.
,; Let ua examine for a moment these regulations, considering them
J l« mathematical ratios s fifteen carrels compared to twenty-four; a
^One-Week time limit oa books compared to an unlimited period; two
'- '< WTiods a week compared to absolute freedom in entering the stocks,
rvltyis is essentially Mlltonic in its piling up of climax upon climax.
K' Combine these ratios, and ponder upon the tremendous disproportion
'of things/
The primary consideration in any University is, of course, the
Jtudents.   They are the First Cause.   Perhaps by this arrangement
'acuity il able to give the University as a whole better tuition, and
,$!• sets oft what advantages are lost by honor students.   But facts
,^'JWCW that Very few of our professors do use the carrels to any great
'sxtent, as they have offices and as a rule considerable libraries of their
own.   Some of them do, however, abuse the privilege of keeping
bodies out as long as it suits their own convenience.  This is, of course,
S stumbling blook to any library system.   What we suggest is that
•veryotte ought to observe the time limit on books, and that all fourth-
yeaf honor students who have graduating essays to write, be given
perfect freedom to the stack-room, even if tho restrictions are retained
on use of carrels.   This would be a great economy to students who,
indeed, have no time to waste.  Within a University everything, even
including the Library, is after all, only a means, primarily, for
student welfare.
With proper clink of platitude, we say there are two aspects to
every question—just as inseparable as are the two sides of the same
curve. But this curve, if justice rules, should assume the special
position of the straight line, thereby making the two sides equal.
However, fair or unfair, in the end time shogs us all on to sleep
on the same 'mattress of loam:"
, Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,
As with the unjust so also with the just....
Perhaps we are only imagining a grievance and posing in the
attitude of dying heroes. Perhaps we are spurned ns fanatic reformers, as reformers coming before our time. On the other hand, we may
be behind, rather than ahead of the standards of our age. Perhaps the
regulations regarding library privileges are beyond our comprehension. Were not Archimedes, Pythagoras, Galileo, and all great
men and their theories, at first, misunderstood?
However, perhaps it is not the proposition, "All great things, at
first, are misunderstood," which must be considered, but rather the
Converse of that proposition -and therein lies a logical fallacy, and
perchance, thereby hangs a tale.
HOME COMING WEEK
The first real indication of life and activity among the undergraduate body of this University has been shown in the plans recently
announced for the Home-Coming Week, a reunion for under-grads
and alumni, which is to be observed November fifth to eighth. Up to
the present students as a whole have displayed an alarming lack of
interest in anything connected with the activities of our institution;
hut it seems that this enterprise has spread a germ of enthusiasm
among the rank and file of students, a thing which shows that the
elusive and oft-mentioned substance known as "college-spirit" has
not yet entirely disappeared from our University life. Consequently
the committee in charge of the project may congratulate themselves
on the fact that they have at last placed on the menu of student
affairs a tit-bit, the name of which, at least, appeals to the average
atudent. Whether or not the programme itself measures up to the
expectations of those interested, is a matter which is yet to be
determined.
University life, as a whole, inevitably resolves itself into a separate stratum of society which, although diversified in interests and
heterogeneous in many respects, is nevertheless held together by common bonds. Students graduating year after year, new classes entering University continually serve to loosen these bonds and to make
them more widespread. Naturally it is desirable for all graduates to
keep together as much as possible and form an entity which may
exert a more powerful influence as time goes on. With the incessant
flow of students in and ont of University, it becomes increasingly
imperative that the common bonds be tightened so that the powers
and influence which this body possesses may bo exerted to the full,
It is evident, then, that in order to gain this end, there must he constant communication and co-operation between the two bodies, Undergraduate and Alumni, which comprise this one vast unit. In this
respect Home-Coming Week is one of the many necessary methods
of communication between grad and undergmd; and because the
oommittee in charge has had foresight enough to see tho necessity of
such measures, and especially because they have taken active steps
towards achieving something definite in this line, they indeed deserve
our praise and our support.
OUR FOREVER
How shall we match this rapier blade.
Against Fate's bludgeon of the years
to be?
Stone walls and roses drift to dust
wherever
Time passes in unhurried mockery.
But tor a space we hold the moon in
f AA *
And now we walk the dim ways of
delight;
We have hoard trees stir softly in the
night,
And known for dawn across a summer sea.
Take my hands quiokly!  I am not
content        ,
That our bright Joy should be a little
rust
Laughter and ecstasy as yet unspent
We hold against Time's mockery—
but we must
Keep very close together, parry and
thrust
So bravely lest Fate cheat the dear
endeavor;
Kiss me! Beyond the flash of our Forever,
Forevor, walls and roses drift to
dust.
Jaunty Juniors Join
in Jazzy Jamboree
Arts '28's new departure in the way
of social activity, has proven an unqualified success. The function, which
took the form of a the dansaut, was
held from 4 to 7 on Saturday afternoon
at the Winter Gardens, English Bay.
In contrast to tho wretched weather
outside, the hall proved a welcome
haven ot refuge to those students who
dared the elements for the causes of
class loyalty and pleasure. The cheerful fireplace, the comfortable chairs,
the rows of tables, and last, but not
least, the spacious dancing floor were
the means of providing one ot the most
enjoyable entertainments that Arts '28
has held.
The all-Important item of syncopated
music, not to mention jasa, was furnished by the Rythm Boys' orchostra
In their usual capable manner.
Refreshments, the "the" part of the
"the dansant," were served during the
course of the afternoon.
The most noteworthy feature of the
affair was the atmosphere ot lively
Informality that was evident throughout the afternoon. This was partly
due to the two-year acquaintances that
have been developed through the life
of the class, partly to the fact that It
was an afternoon affair, but chiefly
to the organization aud conducting ot
the dansant by the executive, in particular the committee at the door.
By tact, resolution and severity, the
class officers succeeded in at least obtaining a class dance exclusive for
members of the clasa. This necessitated constant vigilance and a certain
risk of unpopularity, but it was shown
that Arts '28 meant business. Many
would-be dancers from other yours,
were rejected ut the doors.
Patrons and Putronesses were Dr.
und Mrs. Koenlyslde, Professor and
Mrs. Howard, Dr. Wilcox and Miss
Saline Murphy.
UTERARY SOCIETY
HOUKMEETING
A meeting of the Men's Literary
Society was held in A100 on Thursday. The executive was ready with
an outline of the main features for
the year and after considerable discussion it was decided to proceed immediately with the formation of a
Students' Parliament. To avoid the
expenses of election campaigns and
the strain of persuading an apathetic
electorate to endorse one's candidature, prospective members will simply
have to register their Intention with
the secretary. The Society has admitted to full membership all those who
put. their names on the Men's Literary Society lists and these, together
with any others Interested are expected to be present at the next
meeting. The first sitting of the first
session of the parliament will be
on Thursday, at 3 o'clock In A100.
The first resolution has already been
placed on the order paper and reads
ns follow*:" Resolved that Arts '21
be eeverely censured for their con.
duoting of the Freshman Initiation."
In view of the controversial nature
of the topic and the support promised
b) Science and Arts '30 the Sophs
will hnv*' to be present In large numbers to uphold the n.'Katlve. Class
whips will be busy lining up their
adherents for the opening of the
House, and with the field for activity
practically unlimited there la no reason why there should not be a "full
house."

HOW IT STARTED
HI.
Baalam was losing his temper rapidly. The, ass would go no further, ho
matter how vigorously he pleaded,
cajoled, shouted and swore. At last
Baalam was at the end of his vocabulary, which was famous far and wide
as being the moat complete and exhaustive Hebrew lexicon in tbe country. He had been an army mule driver
tn the late Hittite war, but now he had
at last met his match.
"Oil   Oil   Oil  You  silly asa
♦6T!M"" be screamed, looking around
for a Bwitoh. He picked up a atout
cudgel and awung It vigorously.
"Whack" Tbe stick landed on the
ass' side. "Ouch! Say, what the Sam
Hill are you trying to do?" shrieked
the donkey,
Baalam staggered baok in aurprlae,
resolving to change his bootlegger.
His kneoa trembled and he felt sick,
He sat down, gaaplng and aoratching
hla head In amasement, He wiped his
brow and looked around bewllderedly.
At last he summoned up courage,
and grabbed the stick again, resolved
to punish the ass for tbe fright It gave
him.
He crept forward cautiously, and delivered a resounding blow against tbe
ass' ribs.
"Why did you hit me again?" said
the ess in surprise.
"For crying out loud I" answered
Balam viciously.
RENA]SSANCE
A Renaissance of Muck-a-muck
poetry is ocouring. According to the
best authorities, the U.B.C. is now
becoming a "nest of singing birds."
Students are letting their hair grow
long, are forgetting to shave, and show
other signs of true poetic feeling, Tbe
younger men are wearing flowing bow
ties that would tame the aesthetic
sensibilities of Oscar Wilde. Altogether, tbe soul of the U.B.C. has
ftWftsl6I16d.
One effect ot this revival of poesy Is
the appearance of this page. It has
become an "Anthology ot Modern
'Muck-a-Muok*" verse that cannot fall
to aroUse enthusiastic recognition.
If this "Neo Muokian verse" con-
tinues in such profusion, we would
adviso the Parent-Teachers' Association to agitate for a course known as
English '25, to study this movement.
SIMILES
As a lightning flash strikes a storm-
cloud rude,
With a horrible rending jar,
So leaps a man from his breakfast
food
And runs to catch a oar.
Like a man who has had his share of
knocks
Prom the Powers that be on High
He drops the coins in the ticket box
And heaves an awful sigh.
As a worm ploughs through the sodden
slush
When the rain Is falling fast
So ploughs he through the street car
crunh
Antl gets a 3eat at last.
As    mountaineers    climb    dangerous
slopes
And yet make little fuss
So   through   tlio   crowd   tho   student
gropes
At lant to reach the 'bus.
As stately ohips cross the wrinkled sea
In a slowly rolling way
So goes  the 'bus to the U.B.C.
On a specially foggy day.
As horses proud hate the hunting crop
But at last themselves resign,
So comes the bus to a halting'stop
At nearly five past nine.
As a street car waits for the traffic
cop
Until the sign says go!
So waits this man, for the Ire to pop
From a specially wrathful Pro.
THIRD THOTH THEME
The Society of Thoth has selected
the following theme to be published
In this issue. The author is Mr. J.
R. M. of Agriculture '3dv, who la admitted as a member of the organisation.
The competition for membership will
remain open until 4 o'clock on Friday
afternoon. Candidates are requested
to write a short essay of not less than
200 words on one of the following
topics. "The Psychological Charao-
lstlcs of Maggie Jlggs," "Oeorge McManus' Place In Contemporary American Art," "Bye, Bye Blackbird aa a
development of Modern Music,"
"Harry Langdon as a Portrayer of the
Kmotlone," "The Poetry of Walt
Mason" or "Stephen Leacoek's contribution to the Modern Novel."
"■Yl SYI BLAOKSIRD Al A
DIVILOPMINT OF MOOBRN
MUSIC"
To any who have partaken of tho
Fruits of the Capitollana, or more so
to those who have felt the delightful
whirl of Freshmen's fantastic tread at
their annual coagulation, I need not
long dwell on the transporting effect,
(to the imaginative element of course)
of that modern sweet refrain, "Bye
Bye Blackbird."
It is to such Musical masterpieces
as this that Arts '80 can well uphold
their Initial poise on the eve of their
greatest adventure, and it is to the
strains ot such martial and crushing
airs, that men can face even the pitiful downtrodden expression of a
Freshman's countenance as he emerges from a Physics I lecture. With the
invigorating stimulus provided by such
music, even the sober sophomore can
be induced to leave his tobacco long
enough to glide over the flowsr sprinkled floors of Garden Court, while his
soul is transported on high and for
the space of a few short minutes (all
too short alas) he sips the Vintage
from the Oods of the Octaves while
his fair companion glggiingly remarks
"Ain't the music wonnerful?"
To the radio fan it marks a new
era in the history of the oscillation of
the Vacuum tube as It far and above
the usual type of static. To the lonely
light-house keeper, to the mariner and
the farmer, to alt who are "weak and
heavy laden" It brings the Joy of mod-
ernjragtime, the effulgating spirit ot
life renewed through the departure of
the solitary heralder of "Better things
In Modern Music, "Bye Bye Blackbird."

AQOIE DISCUSSION CLUB
A meeting nt the Aggie Discussion
Club wan held cm Thursday, the 21st at
noon with Mr. II. Ross In the chair.
Mr, R. Odium was elected vice-president and Mr. h. Rlaok a* secretary-
treiiMurer of the club. The secretary
then submitted a very favorable report on Ihe activities of last year.
Prof. Moc, tho Honorary President,
then gave a short address on the uses
and needs ot public speaking. This
waa very warmly responded to by the
club.   The meeting adjourned.
The Cause
The Great Egyptologist raced to the
ancient tomb of the Pharoahs as he
heard an unusual commotion around
the excavations. Shrieks and yells
Issued from the native diggers who
were running in all directions.
The Egyptologist drew his revolver
and firmly grasped his hammer in the
other hand. He was prepared for all
emergencies.
At laot he was at the top of the
narrow pit outside the ruined temple.
He looked down and gasped with
amasement, The ground was In a
turmoil, as if there waa aomethlng
moving beneath. Waa It an earthquake? The Bgyptologlst decided that
It was too local for that,
Summoning up all his courage he
Jumped into the excavation and seised
a pick. With a few well-aimed blows
he uncovered a small oaved-ln chamber, with pieces of aarcophagua flying
In all directions.
There before him waa a mummy
rolling over and over on the ground I
The Bgyptologlst's aclentlflo curiosity
overcame his fear.
Amid the chaos he deciphered an
inscription on the mummy that read as
follows: "Mutan Cheops, High Priest
of Thoth."
Thoth! The scientist remembered
a telegram he had read that day about
the formation of the Thoth Sooiety,
and guessed the amaslng truth!
"A priest ot Thoth was turning In
his grave!"

At eight o'clock
The corner's bare,
For I'm sure
No cars are there.
At half-past eight
One car arrives—
The man within
Snores as he drives.
At nine o'clock,
The cars are packed,
The students feel
Their bones are cracked.
At three o'clock
Labs still detain
The few small cars
That still remain.
At six o'clock
The last will go.
Tomorrow—well,
The same old show.

THE NEW ERA
The Varsity was run all wrong
So say the men who there belong.
Hence, have I broken Into song.,
The students did not want to learn.
A violent wish made folt. its burn,
And so to play they oft did turn.
Hut now has come the Club of Thoth,
It lures the Soph and Freshie both,
As the bright candle lures the moth.
The members of the club are wise,
For each and every one who tries
To enter, must a theme devise.
The theme may be on this or that,
Why Rugby players can't get fat,
Or why the Ubyssey falls flat.
Tho purpose of this enterprise?
Perhaps some humour will arise
From out the brains of dull or wise.

Second Team Plays
To a One All Draw
On Saturday the Second Soccer
drew M with New Westminster O. W.
V. A. at McBride Park. Varsity started with ten men but New Westminster was unable to break through. The
game started fast and furious and Var
sity missed several chances. Two of
the opposing team were laid out when
they attempted to charge Splllsbury
and missed.
Stevenson came on in the second
half and played an excellent game at
outside right. The team worked well
together and Dave Warden at centre-
half played a steady game keeping his
forwards well up. New Westminster
scored flrst .by a well-placed shot
which was impossible for Anderson
to save. A few minutes later Stevenson shot and the New Westminster
full back headed the ball into his own
goal. Alan Todd was unfortunately
hurt, spraining a tondon in hla leg.
Wright and Robertson combined well
at fullback and kept the opposing for
wards away from the goal. Line-up-
Anderson, Wright, Robertson, Splllsbury, Warden, Millar, Todd, Wilkinson,
Oauden, Duffell, Stevenson.

Varsitv "Big Three"
Loses to Victoria
Though the Blue and Oold lost Saturday's "Big Three' Canadian Rugby
game at Victoria by the score of 5-0,
it was a very satisfactory game from
a Varsity standpoint. The Victoria
team made all its points on kicks to
the deadline. At no time could It
score a touchdown. Varsity on the
other h«nd,on two or three oocaslons,
waB within ten yards of tho Victoria
line, though she could not get the ball
over for the necessary points,
Victoria's victory was due mostly to
the phenomenal kicking of Fraser, and
to the Inability of Varsity to make
consistent yardage on end runs. This
last was undoubtedly the great weakness of U, B. C play. On bucks,
however, Varsity excelled. Several
times the U. B. C. team waded down
the Held to within scoring distance of
the Victoria goal line, only to lose the
ball on some unlucky fumble at the
critical moment. On one occasion the
Blue and Oold actually kept possession
ot the ball for nine consecutive downs.
On the Varsity team Anderson and
Currle played their usual stellar game.
Newly did some excellent line-buoking.
Hubert King played wonderfully tor
his first attempt at Canadian football,
and Runge, the demlnutive player
from the prairies, ran and bucked like
a demon. If this little fellow had got
a fair chance, he would undoubtedly
have scored.
Line-up:
Watson, McPhee, Dickson, Hall, Dar-
ough, McLellan, Anderson, Cameron,
Currie (Capt.), Poarce, Robertson,
Smith, Brown, Newby, King, Runge,
Duckerlng, Jackson.
Varsity Basketball
Starts on Nov. 6th
Saturday night, November 0, will
see the opening of the V. k D. Basketball League at Normal gym., when
four Varsity teams tangle In their
initial starts. At 7.80 the two women's
teams meet, and immediately after
they have settled their argument, the
Senior "A" men will tackle the Varsity Orads, the new entry In Senior
company this year.
GEO. "DODE" TUCK
These two all-Varsity games have
been arranged in connection with
Home-Coming Week and will be followed by a dance In the gymnasium.
Both games should be bang-up affairs
as tho players on all teams are anxious
to get away to an auspicious start by
winning their first encounter.
With two more weeks' practice under tho guidance of "Dode" Tuck, the
Varsity men will be In the best ot
shape and should give their graduate
friends an Interesting session, Although no definite selection for the
team will he made until the end of the
week, there nre some who have been
showing particularly will and should
make the grade. Butler, Nesbltt, Turpin and Macdonald are the pick ot the
guards, while King Is playing a steady
gume at centre. There is a wealth ot
forwards to choose from In Hartley of
Inst year's squad, Orant and Meyers
of Westminster, and Swanson Thomson and Robinson of the Senior "B"
team. Mclntyre of Rugby fame, Is
another flashy player, who will be
well up In the list when the final
choice 1b made.
Don't forget Saturday, November 6,
two big gamea and a dance at Normal
Gym.
*••«-
Sportorial
It was a fighting Varsity rugby
team that went out. and beat the
K. E. O. B. on Saturday and they
showed a lot of Improvement ovor
any or their previous battles, Nice
going, gang, and we owe a lot of
thanks to Couches Farquharson, Tyr-
whltt and Oranger.
The most Impressive Improvement
was shown on the defensive. The
Varsity backs pressed tho K. E. threes
and prevented them from opening up
a deadly wing formation. There is
still a decided weakness In the scrum.
The fault seems to lie in lack of coordination to produce a united effort.
The pack is powerful In the front
rank but fades out in strength in the
last line.
Practice may eliminate this fault
and getting down fast and low will
help a lot. The K. E. crowd pushed
our crew hard Saturday and at times
forced  the center to crumple.
The playing of Mclnnes at full back
was all that could be desired. Far
from being the usual weighty fullback, he can kick and tackle with
the best of them. He has all the
nerve In the world and played a real
brainy game.
Young Doug. Mclntyre might have
got a hug from every ginl in the
grandstand if he had been close
enough after his showing Saturday.
He scored a try shortly after the
whistle and came back to lay the
groundwork ot the other touch. He
has keeness and taokllng ability and
is a player of real olaas.
Young Bertie Barrett made an aus-
picious showing In his flrst senior
start Saturday, and despite his mere
17 years of worldly knowledge he
knows rugby. He followed the pack
like a veteran and started the plays
away In great style. He would have
shone more brilliantly had the scrum
heeled out oftenor, but the K. E. forwards got the better of the breaks.
The playing of Locke and Noble
was about the best seen at the oval
for some time. Locke unlike his
namesake of Nebraska sprint fame,
Is not fast but he Is powerfully built
and carries a great brain for forward
■play on his chassis. Always doing the
unexpected he fools the slow type
of forward both on the offense and
defense.
Noble is a big boisterous boy who
is so playful he occasionally puts the
crepe on many brilliant plays. He can
tackle run and plunge and what's more
he does it all the time. Another forward of his type and the scrum would
be perfect.
The usual Quaker prayer meeting
was in ai tendance to give the boys a
big hand. There mu8t have been almost 20 Varsity students there. The
reason given by the rest is that the
Xmas exams are starting on December 16th, and every hour is needed
now.
Six thousand students of the University of Washington will watch their
football team play California on November 6th, when they know that Washington Is practically out of the Coast
Conference running. That's the entire
college, Contrast It to our mere handful.. How about a little pep!
