VANCOUVER, B. C., OCTOBER 30th, 1925
No. 9.
All right, left go, Varaltyl to the
big gridiron classic tomorrow at Athletic Park. Our U. B. C. Llona are
all keyed for their atruggle with the
University ot Washington Froshmen,
but It remalni tor every atudent to be
there to cheer the Blue and Gold team
to victory.
Coachei Burke, Rote and Delther
have promlaed you a big surprise
when the tray itartt, aa three weeks'
■oientiflo drilling have made a great
difference in the ttandard of play. The
•quid hat mattered running Interference to that they will meet the
Frosh at their own game in the second
bait under American rules. The first
halt will be under Canadian rules and
our boys will endeavor to score often
at their own game.
Two new men will be in tomorrow's
line-up, and both should turn In stellar
performances. They are "Red" McDonald, 100-lb. guard of rare ability,
and Mallory, 160-lb. and a ferocious
Mahon, Newby, and Seed In the
backfleld should turn In a finished exhibition ot football, as they are showing pep and dath In the practlcea.
Currle and Anderton will alternate at
quarter. Both are brainy, fast players
and also good defense men.
The line never looked better, both
on the defense and offence. The College of Puget Sound Game found the
weak spots, and, as these have been
given special attention, Coach Burke
It expecting the squad to be invincible. At center Watson or Bates will
start supported by "Red" McDonald
and Molntyre as guards. Tiny Noble,
the big active tackle, will team with
Hall or McPhee at the outside guard
position. Hall, the star with the educated toe, will be drawn out of tho
line to do the punting, Coach Burke
has satisfied himself that ends like
Morris, and Mallory are hard to beat.
Both are superb tacklers and very
fast. Anderson and Gamble will be
substitutes for this position. The team
will average 180 lb. In the backfleld
and 185 lbs. In the line.
The eastern half ot the grandstand
has been reserved for the Varsity
students to witness the last home
game of American Rugby this season,
Tommy Berto, and Kenny Stewart,
Varsity yell kings, will lead the Varsity crowd In snappy yells, so come
prepared to root.
MeaJJoma Athletic Club and Hyacks
will play preliminary Canadian Rugby Just before the big show, so come
early and see the two games.

Debaters Chosen
--•Wany are called but tew are
chosen" can rightly be said of the
try-outs tor this year's Inter-colleglate
debates held on Monday afternoon.
Twelve candidates were to be sifted
out ot the mass by the judges, Professors Soward and Angus. Each of
twenty-seven nervous hut enthusiastic
candidates sat In suspense until his
name was called, then "did his stuff"
and bolted for the door.
The only one who took a ghoulish
delight in the preceedtngs was Mr.
Jack Shakespeare, the chairman. He
looked like Fonquter-Tinville of
French Revolutionary fame, with a
list of victims in front of him. Every
few minutes he would pounce on a
name and sentence Us owner to his
excellent substitute for the guillotine,
namely, the platform.
Protectionists and Free Traders
came forward In shoals, while
only a few speakers chose Western Civilization as a subject. Of the
latter, the optimists far exceeded tho
pessimists. A veiled suggestion was
contained in the opening words of
several speakers:— "Mr. Chairman,
Honorable Judges and gentlemen."
One candidate embraced worlds of
wisdom and anguish In hla beginning;— "Fellow sufferers." Nothing
more need be said.
The twelve "chosen ones" underwent final trials along with debaters
exempt from the first round. The
subject was; "Resolved that a metropolitan area is In the best Interests
of Vancouver." Those finally chosen
H. L, Brown, B. Bailey, J. H. Craig,
B. Dunn, M. Hunter, D. Murphy, P.
Murphy, S. Kobe, R. Palmer, J. C. Oliver, H. Purdy, R. Steadman, G. Telford, with one more still to be chosen.
The names are not In order of merit.
Basketball Moguls
Announce Line-ups
The Senior A and Intermediate B
basketball teams have been selected.

of the other squads will not be known
till later. Senior A will have Tommy
Wilkinson (('apt), Fred Newcombe,
Arnold Henderson, Dad Hartley, Roil
Gordon, Hub King. Dick Nesbltt, Hill
Turpin, Otto GUI. and Tunny Butler.
The Juniors will have Tommy Berto
(Capt.), J. Williams, II. Rao, K. Swanson, A. McConnachle, V. Little, II.

U, was with mingled fear and curiosity that the green-banded Freshettes
crowded Into the Common Rooms on
Wednesday afternoon in an attempt
to meet their Prefects, who were to
conduct them to the Annual Prefect's
Tea. By four o'clock a crowd had assembled outside the Cafeteria entrance, and the expressions of fear on
the faces of the frail Freshettes grew
even more pronounced. What awaited them at the toot of the stairs?
Vague memories of a former University Tea were ruthlessly recalled to
mind. Would there be a pile of aprons
and dusters Just around the corner,
and In the distance cups of cold coffee
and a few small sandwiches with
which, after having waited upon the
awe Inspiring Prefects, they might revive themselves?
False fears* Indeed.
Wllell the bravest of the Freshettes
advanced towards the dour, aud with
many encouraging remarks from those
In the rear, peered round the corner
she saw, to her Intense relief, a crowd
of stately Prefects disporting themselves around a table, laden with good
things to eat. It was In a daze that
she listened to the words of welcome
extended to her by Mrs. Kllnck, Miss
Bollert and Miss Irwin. Could she
really bellevo her eyes? Might she revive her shattered nerves with one of
those cups of steaming tea that were
being poured out by Mefldames Brock,
Clement, Coleman, Miss Mclnnes and
Miss Hansford?
Yes, It was all true. With what glee
the little Freshettes enumerated to
their friends the celebrated seniors
whom they had met; with what a wild
enthusiasm the latecomers appropriated the chairs of those who were
already leaving and with what a frenzied scoal they devoured the last few
crumbs of cake; then, as the hard
worked Prefects heard the sighs of
contentment, they felt somewhat rewarded for all their labours. The little
Freshettes, as a result of the untiring
efforts of their Prefects, made many
new acquaintances and It was with
the greatest regret that they began to
realize they might only wear the green
badge of carefree pleasure for a year.

The Back Door Policy
(An Editorial)
Wo wish to congratulate the student body on tho intelligent and undomonstrnble manner in which they have welcomed
the new Regime of Discipline, The esprit tie corps has been
very notieenble from the first. The placarded ruling intimating that Arts corridors and stairways were not to be used by
students for the purpose of going from one lecture room to
another was at once seen to be n wise provision. Hence men
students have proceeded from Room 102 to Room 101 by the
much more orderly and healthy route which gyrates over the
campus and through a back door, or the girls' entrance.
It has been with similar expressions of joy that students
have welcomed the rules of restricting the dispersal of lunches
and the wrappers thereof. The novelty of a grill built so that
all must enter through one small unroofed aperture and depart
through two wide and unexposed exits has caught the fancy of
tho student body, and that famous organism may now bo seen
cheerfully obeying further restrictions by cutting eleven o'clock
lectures to reach the grill before the noon rush.
Even the subtle wisdom of the "Directions for Janitora,"
discouraging the latter from all intercourse with the students,
was at once perceived by our omniscient fellows. Similarly,
the intelligence which has prevented honor students from en-
tering tho stacks for want of the correct chairs, has been recig-
ntaod and respected by them.
Quite the zenith of student perspicacity, when focused upon
the mysteries of rules, has however been reached this week with
the perfect, joyous acceptance of the notice on the library steps j
"Faculty and visitors only—Stndenta will please use basement
Of course, you say, the virtue of the ruling is obvlotin'.
Were not these edifices erected that we might have sight-seers
nt our university? Is not the mechanism of the revolving door
too fragile for student operation? Hence we reiterate our congratulations to our fellow students.
Jupiter Pluvius is a freshninn; not
the patron saint of ancient Troy's tire,
department. Anyone doubting this
should have seen the green ribbon
he wore on Saturday after his puny
attempt to coerce the members of
Arts '27. They hiked their hike,
danced their dance and fussc-d their
fussing. Commenting on the event,
President David Sturdy said, "A
pleasant time was had by all."
Promptly at 2:20 fifty-three members of the junior year and the patrons and patronesses, Dr. Boggs,
Prof, and Mrs, Soward, Dr. and Mrs.
Keenlyslde, went on board, The captain of the ship having perceived
that all things were In order, weighed anchor and stood out to sea.
North Vancouver was soon sighted
and Its three Inhabitants, perceiving
a somewhat unusual shape recumbent
on the deep, formed fours and marched down to meet the transport which,
the tide now being at the flood, cast
anchor about the third hour. Tokens
of friendship having been presented
by all the Inhabitants, the class disembarked. The leading men gave
orders that the hall was to be roachod
with tho utmost speed and, mounting
a common chariot from all directions,
the class rode off.
The Second Canyon Hotel, tho orchestra and the mountain nlr were
adequate Incentives for a dance,
Some, It is trim, could III abide tho
vapid appeal of the Charleston and
soon discontinued dancing, absorbed
In the natural beauty of the Hennery
and enthralled by other thoughts.
Ily 11:30 the mimic suddenly ceased,
Supper served. Art*: '27 Hiiid a few
words of respectable commendation
to Itself. Then the long trek to civilization began and by half past seven

The tables and chairs for the Reading Rooms being now Installed, after
this   date   these   will   be   assigned   to
Students as follows:--
Main Concourse.

Students are requested, as far as
possible, to do their Library reading
In the room assigned, in the event
of all the seats In the Reading Room
assigned for their use being occupied,
they are at liberty to take a seat In
a room not belonging to their year,
but should move to their own room
as soon as conveniently  possible.
Chairs at tho end of the most southerly of the three central tables In the
Main Concourse are set aside for
Students consulting the Catalogue
for "Required Reading," They should
not be occupied by Students for general reading purposes.
Similarly the four seats nearest the
loan desk of the most northerly of
the three central tables In the Main
Concourse are set aside for the making out of call slips for ordinary
loans, and should not be occupied by
Students  doing  general   reading.
Tho cooperation of all Students In
the carrying out of these regulations
is requested.
A dance, In honour of tho University of Washington football team will
be held In the Normal School Gymnasium on Saturday, October 31st, from
S to 12 p.m. (The gallory will be
available for those who wish to dance
the Charleston). There will be good
music, the admission will be 50c each
or 75c a couple and includes refreshments. LET'S ALL GO, AND GIVE
Final Selections For
Xmas Plays Are
Acting Unusually Good In
Final Tryouti
The last try-out has drawn itself
to a shuddering close. Those who
survived the first Christmas play tryouts, were shifted to other parts,
were frantically rehearsed throughout the week, and were given their
final torment last Tuesday afternoon,
There will be no more try-outs until
Spring, and until then the ambitious
players may rest In peace. Suspense
is dead. So, also, it Is feared, are
many of the players, judging from
their conditions as they were borne
from the stage. Leslie Brown, as usual, played hia part as guardian
angel,—congratulating the jubilant,
raising the hopes of the fallen, and
even, to one forlorn damsel, too far
gone for help, illustrating with an umbrella, the gallant method of expiration by the sword.
Upon the whole, the acting of the
contestants was excellent, and tho
choices of the judges were made only
after long deliberation and great attention to detail. Though aeveral
chose to improve upon the wording ot
the playwrights, yet the anivlation
and complete absence ot stage-fright
which marked each performance
quite obliterated Bueh detects. The
quality of the noting waa proved by
the mob ot janitors who crowded behind the ourtatni to watch the tame
parts repeated time and again.
Laughter, teara, and righteous indignation were depicted Upon their countenances as they viewed the wild
scenes of dumb Catherine and her
sad affections.
The results were at follows:

A particularly brutal murder-conspiracy was hatched on Wednesday
noon. The Intended victim Is Euterpe,
the Musical Muse, and the murderers
are the members of this year's Ultra-
Pep Band.
The actual murder will be committed during the parade at Saturday's
rugby game. Assistant assassins are
required, and are asked to bring along
their weapons (wind-instruments preferred).
The Super-Pep Band Is Just one
more reason why every student of the
V. B. C. should come out and rupture
his or her huynx at the game. The
visitors know what student support Is
like In the States. Our students
should show them thnt we can pander lo pandemonium  too,

Phoenix-like, the birth of the grill on tho altar of the cafeteria
has not been accomplished without burning pains. Gnashings of
teeth could be heard over the campus on Monday, when, on top of
a sad knowledge of tho rise in prices, tho "mandate" from the
presidents office became known. Tho bemoaning was somewhat dispelled, however, on the following day when, after consultations between
the council, and administration and cafeteria officials, the latter agreed
to make trial of a flat rate, and to set aside one or two lecture rooms,
and a men's common room, if possible, wherein lunches might be eaten.
In the meantime it is to be hoped that restrictions will not be
enforced to the letter. The question of preventing students from eating lunches in their own cars parked on the campus is ono offering
arguments of almost ethical significance; while a ruling which compels
fourteen hundred persons to form a line stretching far, far out into
the rain, every noon hour, in order that they may later congregate
around tables seating four hundred, might conceivably be questioned
as to its justice.
It is certain, however, that eating at large on the campus and in
lecture rooms will no longer be allowed. If any demur, the answer
is that the students have brought it upon themselves. In spite of
warnings from University authorities, student leaders and the Ubyssey,
the heedless scattering of lunch papers lias gone merrily on. It is
true that receptacles have been as scarce as Daimler cars, and much less
conspicuous, but any student with a true desire for the campus beautiful would have taken the paints to walk the odd hundred feet.
For similar reasons >il! noon meetings must be arranged to give
students time to lunch before entering tlieni, It is hoped that by this
means, the busy rustling of papers, which litis greeted the ears of all
eminent men who have addressed our student body in past years, will
be forever stilled.
Ureat reformation in our lunching habits is, therefore, inevitable,
no matter what form the routine of the grill assumes. Merely as a
matter of co-operation it will be neeessary for students who are free
at the 11-12 and 1-2 periods to avoid the noon hour seige.
A final word: All students are, we hope, cognizant of the fact
that the cat'—pardon, the grill, has been taken out of the hands of the
students by a far-seeing government. The plea for its support on the
"patronize ourselves" ground is, therefore, no longer valid. But there
is this to remember that a good patronage of the grill will ensure a
continuance of the cheaper, flat rate. At the same time, we would
respectfully point out to the grill management that the argument works
both ways.
On Monday noon the men of the University will be asked to vote
on the proposal to raise Basketball to the position of a major sport.
The suggestion is timely, and will no doubt prove popular with
members of the M. U. S,
The splendid record of last year's basketball squad is not yet
forgotten. Varsity's Senior A team climbed victoriously through
Mainland, Provincial and Western Canadian championships and came
within two points of winning first place in the Dominion, in the finals
with the Kideau Club of Ottawa. The achievements of the team have
brought our University Dominion-wide publicity and have contributed greatly to the development of basketball in this province.
There is no reason to believe that the future of tho game at U. B.
C. will be any less rosy than in the past. Four of last year's Senior
A men are back on Ihe team. The remaining gaps have been filled
from such of the lower teams with records akin to that of the Inter
mediate holders of the Vancouver and District championship in their
division, Every year fresh material is available in Freshman classes
coming from high schools where basketball is one of the two most
popular and best-organized of sports. Hence there should be little
danger of a falling-off in U. B. C. basketball prestige in the forthcoming years,
If the worst occurred and the standard of the men's Senior A
team fell beyond redemption, they would be required by the league
to withdraw and there would then be no Varsity Senior A team upon
which to confer big block letters. Thus basketball would automatically cense to be considered it major sport of U. B. C.
Basketball is an ideal collegiate sport. The teams are small,
travelling expenses are light, and competition can easily be found.
Four calls for intercollegiate games have been received by the Club
this year.   The game deserves all encouragement ut U. B. C.
Raising of the sport from a minor to a major is one effective
means of encouragement, It would also mean a falling-in-line with
the practice of other Canadian universities. Finally, when past
records are considered, it is a means of giving honor where honor is
A two-thirds majority of the men's athletic association is necessary to pass the amendment. All who think that Varsity's Senior A
basketball men should be entitled to a big block letter should be on
band Monday.

Dear Sir:
With the term over a month advanced, the stacks are still closed
to fourth year honor students, and those doing graduate work. There
seems to be no indication that they will be opened to us in the very
near future. As u result, we are going behind in the work in which
it will be very hard lo catch up again. Our time is limited and
valuable, and after aiding greatly lo obtain the library in the Students' campaign, we see no reason why we have not a perfect right
to use the facilities it offers. Admitted, there may be no furniture
in the library, but a few score chairs would solve the problem.
Hoping that you will reply at your earliest convenience,
We remain,
Yours sincerely,

that we are duly installed we would

Personally we quite agree that the
faculty deserve special consideration,
and it Is only right that certain corridors und stairways should be set

son why the students should be made
to use tin; basement entrance to the
Library. The main entrance in quite
big enough to accommodate the number of students who would wish to

cloak rooms in the basement are not
yet fitted up we can see no reason for
making the students enter by that
Moreover, any one who has used

Dear Sir:
We would like to draw attention
through tho use of your columns to
the exhorbltant prices which now prevail In the Cafeteria. There may be
a little added expense In preparing
the meals In the new Cafeteria, but
we think It Is unnecessary to add so
much. In Fairview we used to he

Now the same meal costs at the very
least 44c. in Fairview the Cafeteria
was able to exist and to prosper,
uo why such high prices now?

tho first week or so. The ordinary
dinner will be served between the
hours of 11:30 and 1:80 and will be
much the same as the old 25c dinner
at Fairview, except that the price
will be 30c. Afternoon tea will be
served, as before, from the hours of
3:00 to 6:30, while it is also the intention of the staff to serve a sort of
light supper consisting of hot beef
sandwich or soup or some such thing.
Those cannot, howover, be served
after 6:30, as the cat. closes at this
hour. Moreover, it Is necessary for
the students to observe as strictly as
possible the ruling regarding the two
lines of service. One of these Is only
for those wishing to take the regular
dinner, while the other Is for those
who wish only tea, coffee or other
sundries. Those In this line will not
be permitted trays. In the present
state ot confusion there are often as
many as three lines, and this causes
a general mix-up which hinders the
service to a large extent. These are
the outstanding points which are to
be observed, and it is hoped that all
students will abide them as much as
Ubyssey To Arrange
For Club Printing
The attention ot all executives is
drawn to a recent agreement reached
between the Students Council and the
Publications Hoard, whereby all future
orders for Job printing for undergraduate societies is to be placed,
through the Publications, with the
Ubyssey printers. This regulation has
been devised to take advantage of the
lower rates which the Ubyssey Is In a
position to secure for this class of
work and also to save time and duplication of work.
The regulation will apply to all
printing which It Is necesuary for student societies to have done, including
song sheets, dance and other programs, tickets, letter-heads, stationery, envelopes, etc.
' Orders should be handed In to tho
Ubyssey office at least ten days before desired, If possible, so that the
printing can be done In time. Full directions as to style and amount of
printing desired must accompany orders. Accounts will he sent hy tlio
I'llblicntlons to the executive placing
the order.

Disturbing Facts
Come To Light
"Distant fields look green, far
away" or something like that, a poet
once said. Thoy do. Some of us remember the crowded quarters In the
locker rooms at Fairview, but we
were buoyed up by the dreams of Infinite space which was to exist "out
at the Point," It does —• Infinitely
SMALL, Our noted mathematician,
P.D.Q.X.2, has Informed us that for
every locker there Is exactly 72
square Inches of floor space In the
locker room (Nil.—If there are two
persons using the same locker, each
will be entitled to 36 square Inches).
He has also, after much investigation,
discovered that the average Arta
man's feet will occupy about 7.839
square Inches. So you see that If all
the owners of all the lockers aro In
the locker room at tho same time
their combined feet will extend over
at least 16.1X5 square feet of tho hallway—which will be very Inconvenient. Something ought to be done
about  this.
"Room—give   us   room."
Tho green ribbon hat become a
tremendous success |n Inculcating the
Freshmen with a proper esprit do
corps." They strut around proudly,
anxious to give proper respect to the
upper years, and ostentatiously display their mark of distinction, All
the success of Arts '29 can be traced
to the green bands.
Here Is a hint to efficiency experts.
Introduce this system Into other activities of life. For example, make
every t'actory worker wear a green
band during his first year at the
plant. He will become proud of his
year .work harder and treat his employers with veneration.
Make first-year policemen, firemen,
cooks, preachers, macaroni-makers,
politicians, loggers, loungo-llttards,
etc., etc., wear green ribbons. Tho
streets will become bright and beautiful, older people will be elated by
the consideration shown them, while
the "wearers of the green" will be
drawn together by the close bond of
sympathy that humble suffering alone
will bring.
First-year burglars and hold-up-men
could be more easily recognized, and
kind-hearted policemen could make
allowance for inexperienced youth.
Murderers with the green ribbon
would always be acquitted, aa alienists would be sure to classify them
in the same mental grade as the original green-wearers, the Freshmen.
Inexperienced bootleggers could be
Think I This system could bo extended still further. People in their
second year ot their calling would
wear baby-blue bands, those In their
third year a delicate pink, and so on,
up to the octogenarians who could
display a beautiful ultra-violet. Beauty would reign supreme.
Reformers, Socialists, Evangelists,
consider. This is the only practical
way to bring about the brotherhood
of man. Mutual sympathy, respect
for age, ambition, loyalty and love
for beautiful colours will be universal in exactly the same way as these
qualities have become ingrained in
the Class of '29. With all our hearts
wo must thank the Students' Council
for their wonderful Inspiration.

Long, long ago, a pyramid was built
—slowly, surely—cemented with the
blood and sweat of thousands of slaves
-shaped and raised by man's cruelty
to man. (Jreat blocks were hauled for
nules across the sandy desert on heavy
sleds ---shaped perfectly with the primitive tools of t he ancient architect
ami hauled into place by Ihe brute
strength ol hundreds of unfortunates.
Far within the mighty pile thus raised
was left a space—a holy, sacred niche
—meant, some day, to hold the son of
the gods, the ruling king. The king
himself looked on as tils sepulchre
was built--noting, changing, making
all perfect in his own estimation. He
brought the neighboring rulers and
nobles to admire his handiwork—In
reality the handiwork of the architect
and the slave—and loudly he discoursed upon his own mighty intellect that
thus reared a perpetual monument to
his fame. Once built, his arrogance
Increased, and he, In his own estimation, considered none as great as himself. Seemingly he forgot that, public
treasure had built the pyramid, and
that the people In reality owned It.
Strict laws he laid down, that none
might brush the stones with his garments, or enter the Inner chamber—
but himself, who was king. And the
niche was kept open, ready for the
king's body—for the monarch thought
not for u moment that It might be put
to other uses by his people, when he
died. Thus did his head swell, and If
he met noble ladles on the marble
pathways of hla palace grounds, he

Class and Club Notes
Fast and furious waged the discussions In Room 100 A on Monday
noon, October 27th, when Arts '28
held their second meeting of the year.
Many vital Questions arose at this
meeting and the arguments on both
sides were prolonged, so that all the
business could not be discussed.
First of all, the president, Mr. Leslie
Drown, discussed class functions. He
announced that on November 7th, the
day of the Varsity-Alberta rugby
game, a class hike would be held. It
was decided on n vote that dancing
would be from 5 to 8 p.m. The admission for this will be by ticket only,
which may bo bought from the various assistant-treasurers. An admission price will be announced later. It
was alto decided to hold the class
party the last ot January, and to have
a class draw as usual.
The next thing discussed was the
question of feos. The $1.25 fee set
in the class budget has been approved
by the Students' Council and there will
be an additional 35c smoker tec for
men. These fees will be collected by
the various assistant-treasurers which
have been appointed by Miss J.
Tolmie and Mr. W. Brown, Men's and
Women's Lit. Representatives. Following upon this arose the questions
of how to dispose of the balance ot
|90, left over from last year. The
meeting Anally decided to turn It into
a Bursary, the full details ot this
plan being left for the executive to
decide. Then the real tight arose,
over the life-long question of gowns.
Loud and long did the conflict ensue,
men versus women, until at last, as
no time was left, the question was
left for the next class meeting to decide.    This will be held very shortly.
A meeting of La Causerie was held
on Wednesday evening, Oct. 2Hth, at
the home of Miss Margaret McKenzie,
New Westminster. A very interesting
jiatier was read hy Miss Lorna Hart on
ot\ "La Sorbonne," the t'nlverslty of
Paris, on which there was much comment and discussion. The subject lor
the next meeting will be a mock trial,
in French, all the members of the
Club taking part.
The meeting scheduled for Nov. 2
has been postponed to Monday, Nov.
9. Mr. G. J. Spencer will speak on
"Insect Parasites."
Outline  of  programme: —
Nov, It;—(a) Bacteriological Parasites; Fred Sparks, (b) Protozoon

On Saturday, Varsity undertakes an
other epoch-making game. Washing
ton has for years been rated high
among Pacific Coast football squads,
and Varsity's attempt to beat them
nt their own game will be something
like bearding the Hon In hit den. But
things should be more even than lu
the last game under American rules.
The fact that play will be half Amerl
can. half Canadian, gives our boys Just
a decent chance to cop the honours,
for, while they have already pitted
themselves against at least a second
class American team this fall, the
boys from the other side have not
had a similar chance against a Canadian college. In other words, what
we lose on the wheel we'll win on the
round-about, and with the additional
advantage of playing at home, the Blue
and Gold ought to stand a chance
against the Huskies. At any rate, the
boys can be relied upon to do as well
as they did against C. P. 8„ and this
time the score should be a better indication of the trend of the play. At
any rate, it's a big event, and, win or
lose, Varsity has got to give a good
impression, both as a team and as a
student body. Outside sport attractions are of minor import this week,
and Judging by the attendance of past
games this shouldn't matter much any
way. This week the big event is the
Washington game, and If we can first
undertake to win this our other squads
will be certain to do their share. Veil

Manager Art Mercer Is a much relieved man to learn that his team does
not have a fixture this week. In the
first place, Art has exactly fourteen
men signed up. Two are Injured, one
suspended, bo Art doesn't have much
trouble giving every man a place.
Then it Is just possible that Art may
want to give the Washington squad
a look over lu search for talent for
his soccer team. And, incidentally,
Tommy Berto would like to have the
afternoon off to attend a certain rugby game.
This week Varsity has a chance to
win eight contests. Last week they
lost nine. This week we want to write
up eight wins. It looks very much
like one sure defeat, however, for alas,

Monday, Nov. 2nd
With greater attractions than ever,
the Rotary Club's second annual ice
carnival will take place at the Arena
Rink on Monday night, November 2.

programme will be the speed skating
races for the B. C. championships, Including the high school relay race of
one mile for teams of three each.
Splendid cups and medals are offered
for  these events.
One of the most humorous turns
will be the burlesque hockey match

skates for fifteen years. The girls'
