Students' Patience Tried by What
They Consider Proof of
His Insincerity
The students will be disappointed
to learn that Canon Hinchcliffe, M.L.
A., who has condemned the use of
Robinson and Beard's "History of
Europe; Our Own Times" in the University, on the ground that it is "unpatriotic," "un-British," and "pro-Ame-
erican," has refused an invitation to
discuss the question in open meeting
■with Dr. Mack Eastman before the
Native Sons of Canada. Tn the
Canon's reply to the Native Sons' invitation he says, according to press
reports of Saturday last, that further
discussion is useless because the object of his criticism has been obtained, in that the offending textbook is to be removed from the curriculum at the end of the academic
year 1923-24. He adds that he can
not afford just now to devote any
time to work outside of his immediate
The implication of the Canon's reply to the Native Sons is that his
criticism is responsible for the decision of the history department to discontinue the use of the text-book in
question. Dr. Eastman, however, informs the Ubyssey that such is emphatically not the case. "The History
Department," said Dr. Eastman on
Monday, "had decided some time before Canon Hinchcliffe's first outburst
that the Modern European History
course, given in the University as
History I, would be discontinued at
the end of the academic year 1923-24,
so that the incriminated text would
automatically disappear from the curriculum. Courses equivalent to our

Costumes Committee Determined
To Present the Very Latest
In Styles
"The proper way to keep teeth good
is to give them plenty of use on bones
and nuts, and wash them every day
with soap—plain, yellow soap-"—are
the words of Mr. Crampton to Valentine, the young dentist. And, if they
be your theory of dentifrice, come and
hear it expounded in the spring play
"You Never Can Tell."
But-—when you see the production,
your mind will not dwell upon such
materialistic and practical theorizing
—you will be attracted by the costumes worn by the fair members of
the cast, which will please even the
most fastidious connoisseur, for not
only will they be chosen with excellent taste, but will be models of the
new  spring fashions.
Dolly's   Dresses.
Flappers, attention! Miss Beth McLennan in the role of the youthful
Dolly, will wear the very latest in
girlish attire. Dainty ginghams, in
bouffant style, will be a feature of her
wardrobe. One of her fetching arrays will be a sports outfit in the newest colours of marigold, maize and
copper. The most artistic of her apparel, however, will he a bright harlequin costume of red and gold to be
worn at the Fancy Ball.

Mass Meeting Friday Noon Endorses Plan of Compensation
For Injuries
"That the Aim itater should approve of the Students' Injuries Trust
Amendment" was V e motion passed!
at the mass meeting held last Friday
A rough draft of the Injuries Trust
Fund as it now stands is as follows:
Clause 7—Finance: (B) 20% of
total net receipts of each activity of
every organization under control of
the A. M. S. shall, when said receipts
come into the possession of the A. M.
S., be placed in a separate fund to be
known as "The Injuries Trust Fund."
Disbursements may be made from
this point as compensation for injuries sustained by members of the A.
M. S. while engaged in activities recognized by the said society. Such
compensation shall be payable as
may be directed by the Students'
Council which shall frame regulations governing the conditions under
which the compensation is to be paid
—and may amend the said' regulations
from time to time as it sees fit.
Regulations: 1. The injuries for
which compensation shall be payable
shall include only direct physical injuries sustained in the course of—
and as a direct consequence of—athletics recognized by the A. M. S.

The Vancouver Arena was the scene
of a gay assembled throng on Tuesday
evening, when the Connaught Skating
Club held their annual carnival, after
the inter-collegiate hockey game.
The hockey game resulted in a
3—1 win for Washington, but Varsity
won the series by one goal in nine.
The "Huskies" started off with a
rush and kept the Varsity aggregation continually on the defensive.
Varsity defence misjudged, and the
puck went flying past Stoodly. Soon
after this reverse the Blue and Gold
evened up the score through Colton's
work when he netted a nice shot from
a difficult angle. The period finished
with both teams fighting for the lead.
The second period was more or less
a repetition of the first, with Washington perhaps having the edge; the
Huskies backed checked all through
the game and blocked every chance
Varsity had of getting away. Near
the end of the period Washington finally took the lead, when Stoodly let
through an easy shot.
After the resumption of play in the
third period, Varsity seemed to find
their stride and but for the work of
the Husky goaltender would have piled up a large score. Near the end of
the game, however, Washington seemed to take on nsw life and were successful in negotiating their third goal.
This ended the scoring, and the final
whistle found the Huskies leading,
Varsity Squad Will be in First Class Condition When They Tangle
with the Vancouver Rep. Team; Game Promises One of
Finest Displays of  Rugby in Years
All roads will lead to the oval at
Brockton Point next Saturday afternoon, when Skipper "Gee" Ternan arid
his crew of warriors will tangle with
the Van. Rep. fifteen in the "battle of
the season." Both teams to date have
displayed sensational form, and, provided the weather man sees fit to present a good field, the game ought to
prove a thriller from beginning to
end. This tilt is the "croocial" game
of the McKechnie Cup series, and a
win for the Blue and Gold cinches the
silverware. A win, however, for Vancouver ties up the series and will
necessitate an additional game. Vancouver's steady improvement which
lately resulted in a decisive 17—0 win
over Victoria Rep. has caused much
thought among Rugby fans, and Vancouver supporters are expressing
loudly a doubt that Varsity can repeat their 10—3 licking which they
handed the Van. Rep. in their last encounter. Further, the so-called critics
go on to add Vancouver  lacked then
the services of their star forward,
George Thom. That may be true, but
the fighting Varsity squad are ready
for the coming encounter and are
grimly prepared to carry Varsity to
a second win over the Van. Rep. Whatever be the result, it is Safe to say
that the coming battle promises to
produce the best brand of Rugby ever
witnessed around these parts since
the war; yea, verily, not barring even
the   Stanford  games.
Varsity Is Prepared.
The Varsity team is in the be«t of
condition and the squad has been
working hard for the game. Every
effort has been made by Coach Mc-
Lachlan and Captain "Gee" to attain
the best possible playing condition of
the team, and U. B. C. may rest assured it is being represented by a
team whose sole purpose is to put forward its mightiest effort in order to
retain its hold on the much coveted
McKechnie  Cup.

History I will be given in the high
schools after this year. This information was published in the 'Daily
Province' of December 7 last in an
article which I wrote. Yet Canon
Hinchcliffe failed to avail himself of
these facts and repeated his absurd
charges on several subsequent occasions."
According to members of the Literary and Scientific executive who
have despatched repeated invitations
to Canon Hinchcliffe to address a
student audience on the history text
question, there are no indications
that he intends to appear on a University platform. Over a month ago,
in a letter to the secretary, he said
that he would probably be able to
come about the middle of February.
To the last letter from the student
organization explaining what was
meant by the use of the term "open
meeting" in a previous leter, and
pressing him to fix a definite date for
his address, he has failed to reply,
although he has had over a month
in which to do so. The Canon promised a student delegation on January 16 that he would speak here and
confirmed this promise by letter on a
later date.
Criticism of Robinson and Beard's
history has been taken up by various
papers and by several semi-public organizations along the line of Canon
Hinchcliffe's attack and seems to
have done the University a considerable amount of harm. In order to
counteract this bad effect and to put
forward the true facts of the case,
the Students' Council has recently issued two statements refuting the
criticisms. The first was sent to the
Toronto Saturday Night two weeks
ago and the second was issued to the
British Columbia papers yesterday.
It is hoped that these will disabuse
the people of the false impression created in their minds regarding history
texts by Canon Hinchcliffe and other
mis-informed or ill-informed critics.
At the meeting of the Engineering
Discussion Club on Tuesday noon, Mr.
Shimmer, of the firm of Burdick &
Logan, stock brokers, gave a practical
and instructive address on "Modern
Methods of Company Promotion.'"
After his speech Mr. Shimmer answered many questions in relation to
stock promotion and received a hearty
vote of thanks from the large audience.
A New Soccer Plan
Last week the weather once more
interfered with First Division Soccer
and caused a postponement of the
games scheduled. According to officials of the B. C. F. A. this may cause
the award of the Imperial Cup to be
cancelled this year. This course
would be a wise one. Should the
games be played off it would doubtless be May before the final round
could be played. On the other hand
the fight for the Mainland Cup goes
on apace. Three teams are in the
final round — Veterans, Varsity and
Kitsilano. The soldiers, leading the
first division, are easily prime favorites. The Varsity's cup team, however, is well known. Kitsilano is
fairly well down in the league but
they have an aggressive and hard
fighting aggregation, and their many
supporters are positive that they can
take either the collegians or the fast
stepping soldiers into camp. If this
can be done is yet to be seen, and is
the cause of much discussion among
followers of football.

Gloria's   Gowns.
Miss Somerset, as Miss Clandon,will
wear numerous attractive gowns. The
most pleasing will be of Delpf blue
crepe romaine with a circular skirt
falling in long graceful lines. Another
outfit will be a smart tailored suit,
one of the newest spring models, with
a chic hat to match.
Mrs.   Clandon's   Costumes.
The extravagant and modish costumes of the younger characters will
throw into relief the more simple and
matronly apparel in soft and neutral
tones, which will be worn by .Miss
Beatrice Johnson, in the role of the
mother, Mrs. Clandon.
The convenership of the Costumes
Committee is in the capable hands of
Miss Kirsteen Leveson, who intends
to outdo all former successful costuming in this year's lavish performance.
Exchange Tickets.
Exchange tickets for the play may
be turned in for seat tickets at the
Orpheum box office, Monday and Tuesday, March 5 and 6, while the general
seat sale for those not holding exchange tickets will not open until
Wednesday, March 7th, thereby giving exchange ticket holders preference.
Race to start at Point Grey, 4 p.m.
All runners must be outside Students' Council office at 3.15 at latest.
Students are requested not to follow
the race in cars, as they will obstruct
the runners.
Each class must provide two cars
for conveyance of nine men to one of
the laps.
The names of car owners or drivers
must be handed in, together with the
list of names of competitors in order
of running, to Secretary E. C. Wilkinson, Sc. '23, not later than Monday
noon. The Athletic Representative
of each year should attend to this.
All runners are urged to watch notice hoard for further information.
No change has been made in the
laps except the last one, which will
finish on Twelfth Avenue in the middle of the block between Laurel and
Play in the Inter-class Badminton
Competition was staged last Monday
in the King Edward gym, Arts '25
finally emerging winners after some
spirited play. In the semi-finals Arts
'23, represented by Gladys Weld and
Helen Kloefer, defeated Arts '26
whose team was composed of Harriet
Haines and Claire Gould. The other
semi-final brought together Arts '25
and '24. Helen Tatlow and Isobel
Russel of '25 were finally successful
in defeating Laura Archibald and
Eloise Angell of '24. In the finals
Arts '25 won from Arts '23 after three
sets of play. The scores were 11-15,
15-3, 15-11. The games between '24
and '26 to decide the holder of third
place resulted in a win for '24.

Another opportunity to see
Varsity Swimmers Perform
Chalmers tank, next Wednesday
night, February 28th, will be the
scene of a dual swimming meet between the Varsity and the aquatic representatives of the schools. Both
teams have been going through a
strenuous system of training in preparation for the meet, and some exciting races will be staged. Varsity's
chances in the meet are good, and the.
team is confident that it can come
through with a win over their younger
but nevertheless brilliant opponents.
Varsity Swimmers.
Swimming has forged ahead this
year at Varsity, and much latent talent has been unearthed by the executive. Great interest has been shown
right along, and many strong swimmers have been lined up.    Those re-
Basketballers Win
Varsity basketballers were successful in copping three wins in four starts
last week. The Ladies' Senior team
and both Intermediate quintettes manipulated wins, while the Senior A
squad were beaten in a well played
overtime contest.
Summary of Games  Played.
Senior   Ladies  Win.
In the Indies' game, Varsity waltzed through the Y.W.C.A. quintette to
the tune of 46 points to 12. At times
it was all Varsity's and the whole team
played   good   basketball.
Intermediate   Games.
In the Intermediate division Varsity
Firsts rolled up a score of 48—12
against the Y.M.C.A. squad. Varsity
played a good combination game, with
the Arkley brothers scintillating on
the forward line.
The Varsity Seconds walked away
from the Bank of Commerce and ran
up a score of 40—10. McKenzie was
the bright light for Varsity, the shifty
Varsity forward netting 24 points.
Varsity  Seniors'  Game.
In a gruelling basketball contest
which necessitated overtime play, the
Native Sons, runners up in the Senior
A division, defeated the Varsity squad
30—24. The teams played an even
game throughout, only one point separating them at half-time, when the
Sons led 15—14. Full time found the
teams even, with both teams going
strong. The Sons staged a great
comeback in the overtime period and
outplayed the Varsity squad, netting-
enough points to win 30—24. Bickell
played a brilliant game for Varsity.
presenting the women in tlie meet are
C. Peter, M. Chapman, B. Tingley, M.
Sinton, M. MacKechnie, S. Thrupp, F.
Gignoe, and E. Angell. The men's
team will be chosen from among the
following: F. Penwill, B. McDonald,
E. Chapman, A. McVittie, A. Stewart-
son, C. Jones, F. Newcombe. O. Tiffin.
The schools also have a strong team,
and amongst those who will be taking
part in the meet are Lillian Broadfoot,
Daisy Prentice, Maisie Lyons, Charley
Hills and Bob McKechnie.
Rooters Needed.
A good crowd of Varsity rooters is
expected to cheer on their representatives. Tickets may be had from the
executive of the club, and as the Chalmers natatorium holds but a small
crowd, Varsity supporters are asked
to get their tickets early.     	
Continued from Page 1)
There is a possibility that Buck Buchanan may not be in the game. Otherwise the team will be intact. Stiff
practices have been carried out daily
and when the team lays off for a rest
on Friday every member of the squad
will be in excellent playing condition.
Student  Support  Needed.
Varsity is out to fight through to
victory, but in order that the team
may c!o so it will take the backing
and encouragement of the student
body. The team must have support,
and it is up to every student to get
out on Saturday and display a brand
of college spirit which will drive the
Varsity fifteen to the McKechnie Cup.
A special section will be reserved for
Varsity supporters, and all are asked
to congregate there. The yells will bo
led by Yell King McLeod and his assistants.
Rowing Club Regatta
In spite of threatening clouds and
later, pouring rain, quite a number of
rowing enthusiasts turned out on
Saturday to cheer their respective
years to victory over the Vancouver
Rowing Club's course at Coal Harbor.
The weather caused a postponement
of the final races of the coach boats
and the singles, but the fours—the
blue ribbon event of the afternoon—
was rowed amid great enthusiasm.
Science '25 won by a length, followed
by Arts '26. The Frosh were easily
two lengths in the lead of Science '24
and took second place comfortably.
The Science Sophomores' crew was
composed of R. McLaren, bow; D.
Roberts, P. Demidoff and B. Bain,
stroke. The men are to be congratulated upon their fine sculling and the
winning cf the event. The sculling
does not count in the race for the
Governor's  Cup.
A Jolly Tea  Dance.
When, at five o'clock, the rain
caused the rowers to cease their activity, a jolly tea dance took place
in the clubroom. A volunteer orchestra composed of Miss Isobel Gart-
shore, Mr. Hugh Russell and Mr. O.
Neiderman provided the music.
It is stated by those in charge of
the sculling that the postponed races
will take place at a later date when
rowing conditions are more favorable
to sculler and spectator alike.
The work that the University Rowing Club is doing in producing scullers, cannot he too highly praised. The
sport is acknowledged to be of the
most strenuous kind, while the exercise derived therefrom is most bene-
Hci.il. The Varsity have already tried
conclusions with the Victoria crews
and the collegians look forward to
the day when they will participate in
an inter-colegiate regatta in which
nearby colleges will compete.
Last Thursday the first round of
the eliminations for the inter-class
boxing competition was held in the
gymnasium of St. George's Church.
Judging from the number of spectators considerable interest has been
aroused. Several close bouts featured the evening's boxing and gave
promise of some very interesting encounters later in the series. Thursday and Friday afternoons of this
week it is hoped to work off. with
possibly one or two exceptions, all
bouts up to the semi-finals. This will
leave next week clear for these and
the following week for the finals.

The announcement that Canon
Hinchcliffe has refused the invitation
of the Native Sons of Canada to discuss the History text-book question in
open meeting with Dr. Eastman, confirms our previous impression that
the Canon has no desire to make his
charges where there is any chance of
them being refuted by competent men.
In staving off the invitations of the
student body to speak here, he has astutely evaded a meeting where the inaccuracy and mischieviousness of his
criticisms would almost certainly be
shown up. We well know that he
does not wish to come here; but he
has promised to speak to the students
and if he does not appear, as seems
most probable, he will have failed to
honour his promise.
Students were disposed to judge
Canon Hinchcliffe leniently at first,
thinking that he was merely misinformed and that he was sincere in his
criticisms. But they have come to
see that any element of sincerity that
may have pertained to his charges
some months ago, has been dissipated
in the light of more recent developments. The Canon has denounced the
use of Robinson and Beard's book on
several occasions subsequent to December 7 last, when an article by Dr.
Eastman appeared in the Daily Province containing the information that
the much maligned text-book would
not be on the authorized reading list
after the next academic year; he
would have the public accept the implication contained in his letter to the
Native Sons that the abandonment of
Robinson and Beard was the result of
his criticism; and he has carefully
avoided an impartial investigation of
his charges or a discussion of the
question in an open meeting with men
competent to present the other side
of the case. The Canon says he has
no time to go into the matter further
—no time, that is, to speak before
large audiences such as those offered
him by the student body or the Native Sons, where there might be a refutation of his statements. Curiously
enough he could find time a month
ago to address some fifty or sixty members of the Child Welfare "League,
when he had the floor to himself.
The students could have forgiven
Canon^ Hinchcliffe for making mistaken charges against the University
which he thought to be true. But
they can not forgive his insincerity
as evidenced by his refusal to accept
the facts of the case when they were
offered him. For his cowardice in refusing to come out into the open and
debate the question with men qualified to refute his arguments, they have
nothing but contempt.
One of the greatest tributes paid to
the university by the outside world
is the readiness with which it criticises the college graduate. A college
man becomes an object for censure if
he uses poor English, even though the
critic himself admits his grammatical
short-comings. "Of course I don't
pretend to know all about grammar,
but he's been to the university." That
is what many people are all too ready
to say: they recognize that there
should be a difference between the
speech of the man who has had an
education and less fortunate people.
But when one listens to some of the
English used in the halls and even in
the lecture-rooms, one cannot help
wondering: Are we really turning
out men and women whose diction
reflects  credit  on  their Alma  Mater?
The Players' Club is in the market
for short articles of dramatic criticism dealing with some phase of the
spring play, "You Never Can Tell."
Suitable stories will be used in the
press to advertise the play.
In addition to the topics already

Dear Sir: —
On two occasions recently I paid visits
to the Cafeteria during the afternoon.
To mv surprise 1 found one of the
tallies surrounded by a motley crowd
of men in disreputable overalls, faces
begrimed with dirt and hands unwashed. I took them to be a gang of labourers, but on closer inspection found them
to be members of tlie Senior Class in
After much argument we have at last
succeeded, for the sake of appearance
and "atmosphere." in persuading the
Senior Arts Class to wear gowns. I
think everyone admits that it was a
very necessary and wise step. Does it
not seem a pity to have the effect completely spoiled by the uncouth, disreputable appearance of the Seniors in
Science? Could not steps be taken to
ensure at least respectability, (if dignity is impossible to some) in the precincts   of   the   Universty.
Hopefully   yours,
'20   RELAY   RACE
(By an  "Observer")
Next Wednesday afternoon, Feb.
28, will find the various classes engaged in the annual Arts '20 Relay
race from Point Grey. A running-
race of any kind, particularly when
closely contested, always promotes
intense excitement, and there should
he a gathering of the clans this year
as in the last three years for this
sensational event.
In the writer's humble opinion the
classes will come out pretty much
the same as last year except that
Science 23 should be either first or
second. However, the result of the
race is by no means a foregone conclusion.
Aggies  Have Good Chance.
The Aggies should win with the
material that they have, but whether
they will or not is another matter.
Condition is ninety per cent of the
battle and the Science '23 aggregation, realizing this, have been training harder, probably, than any other
class. Tae Aggies will have to shake
a leg or Doug Rae's huskies will nose
them out this year. Wilkinson is not
able to :-un for '23 hut his place
should be ably filled by Cliff Mathers.
They  Have  Many   Rivals.
Science '24 should be amongst the
point winners this year but they will
not have Rear starting out for them.
The fourth and fifth strongest teams,
from present indications, should be
Arts and Science '25. Arts '25 will
miss Harry Johnston, who was one
of the best individual milers last
year. But the addition of Palmer,
and the fact that H. Arkley will he in
action again, may win a place for the
The Freshies are always an unknown quantity and may upset the
dope. Arts '24 have a good collection
of sprinters but their distance men
are rather scarce. The other classes
have few good milers, except Barton
of Science '26, but may be depended
upon to ;aut up a good fight.
The results of laps will be an-
i nounced by phone at the Students'
1 Council office.
Previous Records.
The distance from Point Grey to
the present U. B. C. site is just over
seven miles. The laps are of varying
lengths, the second lap being the
longest, 1.4 miles, and some good
running was done there last year.
The Point Grey police have put up a
sign at the end of the lap with a
warning to anyone exceeding the
speed limit of fifteen miles an hour,
so runners will take heed.
The record time for the race is held
by Science '24 whose team made the
distance in 36 min. 23 sec. in 1921
over a slightly different course than
last year. In 1920 Arts '23 ran it in
37 min. 30 sec. Last year tlie Aggies
won the event with 37 min. 21 %  sec.
There will be no lectures or laboratory periods after three o'clock. The
race will finish on Twelfth Avenue.
The above is one writer's opinion.
If you do not agree, then go ahead
and select your own winners of the

Rally tomorrow noon in the auditorium.
Yells, songs, speeches and a skit

"Jock" Lundie, Marshall, has ordered his faculty marshals to seat
the students, faculty, by faculty in

centre while the Science and Agriculture will take their places in the
left and right wings respectively.

Owing to the severe blizzard of
Wednesday, Professor Russell was
prevented from coming across from
Victoria to give his lecture on the
classic composers. However, a delightful impromptu recital was given
by several members of the Musical
Society. Credit is due to the energetic president, Mr. Harold Etter, for
preparing an excellent programme
upon such short notice, and the
Musical Society is to be congratulated upon possessing so many talented
members. The insistent demand for
an encore after each number showed
the appreciation of the audience.
Pianoforte solos contributed by
Misses Rogers, Harrison, Willis and
Kerr were rendered with great brilliance and charm. Miss Margaret
Kerr's mellow voice was heard to advantage in a group of songs from the
"Indian Love Lyrics," and an instrumental trio—piano, violin and cello—
by Miss Harrison and Messrs. Kania
and Mahra found great favor. Mr.
Kania  also  played  a violin  solo.
Coffee and cake proved to be an
acceptable conclusion to a very enjoyable afternoon.
A  Jolly   Evening.
On Friday evening in the auditorium the Musical Society enjoyed a
very pleasant social time. Arrangements for the evening were in the
capable hands of Miss Gladys Pedlow.
Mrs. Sedgewick, Mrs. Macdonald and
Miss Bollert acted as  patronesses
Mr. Kania led the Society in the
singing of college songs after which
a short musical programme was given.
Dancing and games followed. The
appearance of refreshments brought
a jolly evening to a close.
The Annual Men's Oratorical Contest will be held next Wednesday
night at 8 in the auditorium. The
six speakers who have successfully
passed the semi-finals will each speak
fifteen minutes on chosen subjects.
The two who in the opinion of the
judges have spoken best will receive
the gold and silver medals presented
annually by the Men's Literary Society.
Mr. Percy M. Barr, Sc. '24, the first
speaker, is rather an unknown quantity, as he has never spoken before,
except to the whole student body.
Mr. S. Kobe will represent Arts '26,
speaking on the subject, "Bast is
Bast,  West is West."
Mr. Wheeler is speaking on "Students and Internationalism." It is not
as yet known what Geoff Riddehough
will speak about. His subject is "The
Road  to  Emmans."
Mr. Plummer and Mr. J. C. Wilcox
are the only representatives of the
faculty of Agriculture.
Refreshments will be served at the
conclusion of the speeches. Everyone
is cordially invited to attend.

And   feel   the   wind's   touch,   truth   is

And   lies  would   tell  me   that I  hold

For just a little longer. . .    Can't you

Uncle Josh's Column
Dear Uncle Josh:
When you see a girl home from a
party and you leave her at the gate,
ought you to wait until she closes the
gate after her before you say goodnight, or do you say it first? Please
let me know what to do, because I
have come into contact with very few
girls so far.
P.S.—What does it mean when she
takes her hat off outside the gate?
S. F.
Why my dear Startled Fawn, it all
depends on the kind of gate. When
she takes her hat off outside the gate
it means just the opposite to what it
would mean if she took it off inside
the gate. *    *    *
Dear Ur.cle Josh:
The other night I was out to supper, and they put me next to the
daughter of the house. She is crosseyed, poor girl, and she ate off my
plate all the time, so that I didn't get
a bite tc eat. At the end of the meal
her mother asked me if I had had
enough. I said I had. Do you think
that my answer was justified?
No, Puzzled, you were not justified,
because you went and told a lie, and
telling lies is naughty. But tell me,
Puzzled, was the girl's mother Scotch,
or did srie really not notice the incident?
If you see a man wandering around
with an aerial fastened to his head,
don't be alarmed: it's just Mr. Muck
with a radio attachment, trying to
"pick up" all the humorous things
that happen around the university.

Dear Critic  of  Muck-A-Muck:—
For your criticism that these columns
are indulging' in "horse-play" rather
than utilizing those humorous incidents
which occur around the University, we
wish to thank you sincerely. We are
extremely grateful for any criticism
which may help us to better this page.
For some time, we have been aware that
there might possibly be room for improvement in our columns, and in order
to effect this we are endeavoring to
enlist the services of Mr. Stephen Leacock and Mr. Bernard Shaw on the
Muck-A-Muck staff. It will be the duty
of these gentlemen to spend all their
time wandering about the University,
noting: the humorous incidents, and writing them down in such a fashion as to
be appreciated by even a Professor.
Yours  sincerely,
When Mary Jane says, "I don't care,"
You'd better drop the argument.
It is a dangerous affair,
When Mary Jane says, "I don't care,"
So leave the point unsettled there;
Think where your predecesors went.

You'd better drop the argument.

SEATTLE, Wash. — Examples of
freshman erudition as evoked from a
questionaire recently given them at
University of Washington, revealed
among other things the following
"Who was William George?" Why,
he is "Lloyd George's little brother,"
ran one of the answers. Equally startling is the fact that Mustapha Kemal
Pasha is head of the Japanese Navy;
"Oliver Twist" is a kind of a tobacco
and Mozart a brand of cigars.
Other samples of freshman intelligence are Iago, "Japanese rice"; Sir
Roger De Coverly, "An old fashioned
square dance"; Becky Sharp, "A Music writer"; Heifitz, "Name of a cow";
Demosthenes, "Russian writer"; Dardanelles, "Name of a song"; and Ronald  Amundsen,  "Painter."

Government at Victoria will pay us
for attending U. B. C!    Maybe!!
University of Southern California—
"Soon women will be so far in the
lead that mere man cannot follow,"
declares Prof. Ralph L. Power of the
University of Southern California, who
is predicting a war for sex supremacy.
He points to groups of college men
who have organized for defense
against the wily female of the species:—
"There must be one sex or the
other in supreme command and everything leads along the paths women are
blazing," he declares. He explains
that the anti-effeminacy league is reported to be flourishing in Columbia,
New York and  Syracuse universities.
