VANCOUVER, B.C., MARCH 13, 1919
Number 15
New Lit. Arouses
Great Interest
MEMBERSHIP IS RESTRICTED-
INITIAL MEETING TO BE
HELD  SOON
The Sigma Delta Kappa was organized
to fill a long-felt want in University
life. For some time it has been evident
that a literary society, which would
stimulate debating and public speaking,
was urgently needed in U.B.C.
So a number of students interested
held a meeting to discuss, in a general
way, the  aims and  personnel  of  the  new
club. At this meeting a committee of
five was elected to draw up a constitution.
The result was that, on Wednesday
last, another meeting was held, and the
constitution formally adopted.
Membership will be restricted to those
who are willing to take an active part
in the Club. All students present at the
organization meeting are to be charter
members. Those desirous of joining the
Society should hand in their names to
the chairman of the membership committee, Miss McConnell.
The officers for this year are as follows: Miss Smith, president; Mr. Mc-
Kinnon, vice-president; Mr. Peardon,
secretary-treasurer; Miss McConnell and
Mr. Keenleyside.
PETITION APPROVED
The efforts of the students to have
military drill abolished have so far met
with success, for the Faculty and Senate
have decided to support their petition
for the abolition of the C.O.T.C. The
matter is now being considered by the
military authorities. As a result of the
petition,  no  parade  was  held  last  week.
HEREAFTER, NO COPY FOR THE
"UBYSSEY" WILL BE ACCEPTED
AFTER TWELVE O'CLOCK, NOON,
MONDAY, EXCEPT IN THE CASE
OF LAST-MINUTE COPY AND IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS.
Concert Proceeds
for Fellowship
REAL U.B.C. SONG TO BE HEARD
—COLLEGE GLEES AND
CHORUSES
Tickets are- now on sale for the
Musical Society's annual concert, to be
held in the ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver on Friday, March 28th. The
prices are seventy-five cents and a dollar, and exchange tickets may now be
obtained. Proceeds will go to the Wesbrook  fellowship.
Mr. Gideon Hicks, of Victoria, will
assist with vocal selections. He is estimated by many critics to be the leading
baritone of the Coast, and is well known
in local circles.
The orchestra, which has been practising faithfully under the leadership of
Professor Russell, now consists of four
violins, four second violins, 'cello, piano,
piccolo, cornet and trombone. Selections
from some of the leading operas will be
rendered, and a few of the Glee Club
choruses will also be accompanied by,the
orchestra.
Another distinctive feature of this
year's concert will be the singing of
College glees. The new U.B.C. song,
composed by Mr. Coope and Mr.
Mahrer, will be heard for the first time
by the public.
THEATRE NIGHT
TO-NIGHT, THURSDAY,  13th
Parade will start from Pacific Street,
between Granville and Seymour, at
half-past seven. Be ready a few minutes beforehand. See page 8 for songs
and yells, etc.
HIKE UP GROUSE
The first students' outing of the year
will be a hike up Grouse on Saturday,
March 15th. Those going will meet at
the ferry wharf to take the 9:20 ferry.
Come and bring a day's grub. A good
turn-out of both men and women is
hoped for.
Varsity Players'
Production
WILDE COMEDY PLAYED TO
FULL HOUSE—ACTORS WELL
APPLAUDED
"The University Players, who on Saturday brought to a close their excellent
'performance of 'The Importance of
Being Earnest,' did more than give the
Vancouver public some delightful hpurs
of amusement. They have assisted to
put Oscar Wilde 'where he belongs'—
back amongst the most brilliant writers
of  the  Victorian  era."
Such is the tribute paid to the Players'
Club by one of the editors of "The
World."
"The Importance of Being Earnest" is
not an easy play for amateurs to act;
and the very creditable performances
given by our students at the Avenue last
week, before large audiences, shows
both an aptitude for acting and a capacity for hard work on the part of the
performers.
The staging of the play was excellent,
and no words can adequately describe
the charm of the setting in the second
act. The costumes were appropriate,
the dresses of the ladies being both
fashionable and, on the whole, well
suited to their roles as English society
ladies.
Miss Highmoor, as Lady Bracknell,
could hardly have been improved upon,
so excellent was her interpretation of
the role of a haughty society woman.
Her. acting was highly finished, and it
would have been difficult to distinguish
it from that of a 'professional. Her
enunciation was especially noteworthy;
every word being distinctly heard, even
in the most remote parts of the building.

Pshaw.—When a young lady says her

offer to warm them with a match.
Inquisitive.—I am sorry I can not tell

is always talking about. I think she is
like the illustrations used by Dr. Boggs,
purely hypothetical.
Puzzled.—Yes, you will have to be
more careful in your conversations with
Joe. Last week he received a communication from George Rex, addressing him
as "Joseph Smeeton, Gentleman." Hence
the removal of the moustache, now he
cannot afford to even look like a Bolshevik.

WESTERN UNIVERSITIES
SERVICE CLUB
The re-union luncheon held by the
Club Saturday last at the Hudson's Bay
Stores was well attended, and all had an
enjoyable time. Among those present
were many of the returned students of
the University and several graduates. It
was remarked that two of the members
of the Club were playing in the 'Varsity
production at the Avenue—Art Lord
and Gordon Scott. Each person present
made a short speech, introducing himself and his right-hand partner. (Many
were the exposures of the character of
the right-hand partner.) Another meeting is promised soon, and rumors of a
dance are in the air.

VARSITY PLAYERS' PRODUCTION
(Continued from page 1)
Both Miss Gilley and Miss Adams did
ample justice to their parts as Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, respectively. The role of Gwendolen was
not a particularly easy one, and Miss
Gilley deserves great praise for her
capable handling of it; although her interpretation might have been improved
by a little more sprightliness of manner,
more in keeping with that of a dashing
young  English  society  girl.
Miss Adams' acting was extremely
artistic, her enunciation clear and distinct, and her voice and manner charming. She is the happy possessor of a
very flexible voice, well suited to the
stage.
"Miss Prism" certainly delighted
her audience, so much in keeping was
she with the character of an old-fashioned and staid governess. Her weeping was especially delightful. Miss
Millar is to be congratulated upon a
clever interpretation of a rather unattractive role. The smaller part of
Merriman, the maid, was very satisfactorily performed  by  Miss  Dorothy  Gill.
The role of a blase English society
man is not the easiest in the world to
interpret; and although the acting of the
gentlemen was hardly as uniformly good
as that of the ladies, Mr. Scott and Mr.
Lord were very successful. As Algernon Moncrieff, Mr. Scott had one of the
most difficult parts. Whilst his handling
of the role was quite capable, it was
occasionally marred by a slight stiffness
and self-consciousness of manner.
The same criticism might be applied
to Mr. Lord in his role of John Worthing. The latter, however, rose to the
occasion splendidly in the scene in
which he was in mourning for his imaginary brother Ernest, and succeeded
in convulsing the audience with laughter.
As Canon Chasuble, Mr. Peebles performed a fairly difficult part very capably, although his enunciation might
have   been   a   little   clearer.
The duties of the man servant, Lane,
were efficiently carried out by Mr.
Hunter.
In the case of the gentlemen, one noticed, at times, that certain words were
pronounced in a rather too decidedly
"Canadian" or "American" fashion.
This was especially noticeable in a play
that is so distinctly English.
We must not forget to mention the
orchestra, which deserves unstinted
praise; and which, to quote from one of
the daily papers, "would have done
credit to any professional body."

AGAIN—THE WILDE    FARCE
"All is over and done." The Players'
Club scored a distinct financial success
in its latest production, and, in all fairness, let us state that the quality of the
acting was quite up to the past standard.
The play was excellently and artistically
staged—the costumes and properties
being all that could be desired. There
were many of the audience, however,
who left the theatre feeling that the tone
of the play was distinctly lower than
that of its predecessors. Blase cynicism
and the complete sophistication of young
girls do not tend to make a play either
successful or pleasant.
Dr. Boggs, in comment, said that the
power of the stage to inculcate principles was very great—>far greater than
that of the printed page. Granted; and.
if this be true, would it not be well to
have some healthy principle to inculcate?
Let  us  hope    that  the    Players'   Club
executive   will   choose   their   next   year's
play more wisely, so that it may prove a
credit,   both   to   themselves   and   to   the
University.

THINK IT OVER
We have been hoping for great things
from the recent conferences regarding
new buildings for the U. B. C. But,
alas! Point Grey is as far away as ever,
and we have come to the conclusion
that the Freshies of 1930 may see the
University held in sufficient esteem by
the people of the Province to justify the
expenditure on it of five hundred thousand dollars. And in the meanwhile—
Did you ever realize how many people
here in Vancouver fail to sympathize
with the aspirations of the students? To
how many, unfortunately, is the University   merely   an   additional   drain  on
the resources of the Province, an institution kept up solely for the benefit
of young people whom these practical
folk regard as little more capable of self-
government than high school pupils, and
certainly worthy of no assistance or attention. A narrow-minded view, this
may seem, but it is one held by citizens
of Vancouver, and public opinion is
moulded by those who have definite
opinions and are not afraid to voice
them.
And yet every student of the U. B.
C. can be a definite factor in bringing
the public to view the growing needs of
the 'Varsity with attention and sympathy. The united effort of the students
can do much to arouse interest in the
question of better accommodation and
to show the importance of University
work in the development of the Province. But, before that can be accomplished, there are some people who
must be convinced that the students of
this University have their full share of
academic dignity and are worthy of serious consideration. "Tuum est"; and
once again for good measure, "Tuum
est."
WESBROOK FELLOWSHIP
The recommendations of the joint
memorial committee of the Senate, the
Faculty and  the students:
(1) That a portrait of Dr. Wesbrook be
obtained;
(2) That a fellowship, to be known as
the Wesbrook Fellowship for graduate  students,  be  established;
(3) That a permanent committee, consisting of a representative from the
Board of Governors, the Senate,
Convocation, the Faculty and the
Alma Mater Society, be appointed
to arrange  the details;
(4) That the Board of Governors be
requested to name one of the permanent buildings on the new University site after the late  President;
(5) That these recommendations be
transmitted to the various bodies
interested,  urging  immediate  action.
STUDENT SERVICE
O11 Sunday afternoon, the second of
March, a student service was held in the
Auditorium in connection with the "Students of Asia" campaign. Professor
Trompour, of Latimer Hall, conducted
the service; and the address was given
by Dr. Short, formerly of Toronto, but
recently a missionary in Japan. Several
of the professors and a fair number of
students were present. March 13, 1919

WE WIN—AS USUAL
The University basketball team had
little difficulty in defeating the Daily
Province A.A.A. at the Y.M.C.A. on
Monday night, winning by a score of 42
to 18. The first half was very even, the
score being 15-13, in favor of 'Varsity, at
half time. In the second period the
Province only secured five points, while
U.B.C. scored twenty-seven. Bob Anderson was heavy scorer for the- winners, while George Gross sent in ten
free shots. University lined up as follows: Guards, Lord and Taylor: centre,
Gross; forwards, S. Anderson and R.
Anderson.
THE   FIRST  FALL  OF  SNOW
All   night   the   sear   grass   rustled,   and   the
wind,
Wandering from plain to woodland, helpless,
lost,
With   neither   stars   to   guide,   nor   twinkling
frost,
in   moanful    tune    among    the    pine    trees
whined.
A   glimmering   dawn  approached,   and,   close
behind,
The tempest  danced  o'er sheltered vale  and
ledge:
Swirling, the snow fell sifting in the sedge,
And all the world in whiteness was confined.
Then   cleared   the   lower   air:    the   ragged
brake,
That once grew straight beside the Summer
lake.
Dejected, hung amid the frozen scene.
Young branchlets,  that in Spring were fresh
and green,
And   swayed . as   cooling   zephyrs   whispered
by,
Stood gnarled and black against the swollen
sky.

THE COLLEGE
OF TO MORROW
A stimulating article in Scribners
for February, entitled, "The College,
Yesterday and To-morrow," may afford
some ground for complacency to those
who bemoan the limitations of the University of B. C. Dean Roe, of the
University of Wisconsin, who thus
offers his opinion, finds the college of
the last twenty years lacking in student
spirit and academic requirements, but
suggests the probable development of
collegiate life in the next decade.
The indictment against a multiplicity
of student activities we have heard before—even in our Freshman cradles—
but on the whole we may consider our
University free from "the whirl of distracting and frivolous affairs, involving
money, time, energy and interest, quite
out of proportion to any real value in
these things," and feel sure that here
"the side show" has not "swallowed up
the circus." It is interest to note,
in passing, Dean Roe's disapproval of
Intercollegiate athletics, accompanied,
as it is, by his belief that "we should
provide an organization of competing
groups within the college, a wholesome
and truly communal form of sports—a
form, too, in which students will take a
lively interest." A curious reader wonders what he would say to the situation
in this University.
On the academic side Dean Roe particularly bemoans the extreme liberty
sometimes permitted students in choice
of subjects and suggests a list of prescribed courses corresponding to our
own. He does not pretend that the
ordinary Arts course has any commercial value nor does he expect it to train
the student for a vocation. The college
is "the place for the development of
humanistic ideals, the establishment of
personal ideals and a place where young
people may discover their natural aptitudes." As an admonition, he adds:
"The college course, to be successful,
according to the standards of the new
day, must be sustained by an organized
and co-ordinated life on the part of
students and faculty—it must evoke an
esprit de corps, such as it has not had."
Dr. Plaskett, of the Dominion Astro-
physical Observatory, near Victoria, will
lecture on Astronomy in the Auditorium
to-night.    The lecture will be illustrated.
Professor—What year are you in,
Miss  ?
Fair Co-ed (with many blushes)—In
my twenty-first year, sir.—"The  Sheaf."
NEW WESTMINSTER
Westminster is a favored town—
I live there,
It is the home of brains and brawn—
I live there;
Its citizens are brave and wise,
A fact I needn't emphasize;
Indeed, it should cause no surprise—
I live there.
Folks come from far to see the view—
I live there;
They wonder why the city grew—
I live there.
They watch  the crowds upon the street
And think the folks are hard to beat;
The reason why—need I repeat?
I live there.
—Modesty.
Conclusive Proof
The Bride—If you loved me as much
as I love you, you'd stop wasting your
money on cigars when I ask you to.
The Bridegroom—Yes, but if you love
me as much as you ought to love a man
who loves you enough to stop it if you
asked him, you wouldn't ask him.

MUSICAL NOTES
It is not often that students are given
the opportunity of hearing world-famed
artists at half-price; even in the large
Eastern musical centres this privilege is
not granted to the students of the
various conservatories. As previously
stated in this column, Cassals, who will
play here on Friday, March 21, is the
world's greatest 'cellist, and occupies a
position in the world of music analogous
to that of Paderewski or Mischa Elman.
It is solely through the efforts of Mr.
F. W. Dyke that artists of this calibre
ever come to Vancouver; and when we
are given the opportunity to hear them
at reduced rates, that opportunity should
not be neglected.
Thanks to the energy and resourcefulness of Dr. Green, the Vancouver
Symphony Orchestra, which was founded four years ago by the late Mr. Zeig-
ler, has been revived, and will give its
second concert in the Orpheum Theatre
on Sunday, March 16, at 8:45 p.m. The
programme consists of selections from
Tschaikowsky, Sibelius, Haydn, Nikolai,
and Green.
It is impossible for such an orchestra
of sixty people to give concerts free of
charge, or even to rely on a collection.
Certain constant expenses, such as the
payment of "the soloists and many of the
instrumentalists, must be met, whether
the audience is large or small; and the
only satisfactory solution to the difficulty is to charge an admission fee. Tickets
are on sale at Evans' music store, and
should be procured before Sunday, as
it is against the law to sell them on that
day.
An interesting operatic concert will
be given in the Hotel Vancouver on
Wednesday, March 19, at 8:30 p.m., under the direction of Madame Enid Hanson. Many well-known local artists are
assisting, as well as a chorus of fifty
voices under the baton of Mr. Joseph
Hinton. The concert will consist of
well-known choruses and arias, including the quartette from "Rigoletto." It
is being given in aid of the Navy League
of Canada, an organization which we all
ought to support; and tickets may be
obtained either at Evans' music store,
or at the Navy League's office, 422
Metropolitan  Building.
A Military Problem
"What    are    you    knitting,    my   pretty
maid?"
She purled, then dropped a stitch.
"A sock or a sweater, sir," she said;
"And darned if I know which!"
—■" 'Varsity."

A PEEP BEHIND THE SCENES
Outsider—Say, how do you pronounce
your name, Chasuble? "Jazuble," or
what?
Peebles—Jezebel? Oh, no! (Pointing
to  Prism.)    There goes Jezebel.
Gwendolyn (in a moment of great excitement, to Prof. F. G. C. Wood)—Oh,
Freddie!    They are calling for you!
Jack (twisting his lines)—I made arrangements with Dr. Chasuble to be
christened at 5:30 this morning.
Chasuble (behind the scenes)—Like
ducks, he did! Think I'd get up at 5:30
in the morning to give him a bath?
Jack    (slipping out   after   catching   a
glimpse of Prism in her make-up)—Say,
Mr.   Wood!     Do I   have   to   really   kiss
Prism in the last act?
Owing to a misreading of signals, the
curtain was dropped on Art Lord's
head. The curtain was repaired after
the performance.
