Women's Undergrad.
Eight p.m., and the stage is set. The
benches have been temporarily exiled
from the Auditorium; the last slippery
touch has been administered to the
floor, and everything waits. For this is
the night of High Jinks; and the peals
of laughter, dimly heard from the distant entrance, foretell a time of revelry
'mid the women of the 'Varsity.
And now they arrive. An incongruous
medley of masqueraders pays the requisite tribute of two precious lumps of
sugar each at the door. Gipsies wander
down the corridors with flower girls and
brigands. Gay young blades "swank"
around' to the admiring plaudits of less
ambitious companions. Shrieks of merriment in the corridor draw everyone
near to the door to watch the sensational advance of some particularly
original  reveller.
"On with the dance!" With the advent of the pianist, the assortment of
brilliant costumes becomes a mad whirl
of colors, nationalities and centuries.
Hilda, from Holland, finds the conversation of American youth sufficiently intelligible for interest and amusement.
But stay! What is happening in the
centre of the room? At first-class cake-
walk, performed by a gentleman from
Dixie and his fair, though dusky, partner, holds the attention of all around.
But the music is irresistable, and the
various couples swing back in a circle
of the floor. At the far end, a very chic
young damsel-straight from Paris is the
cynosure of all eyes. Near by is an
escaped convict who has ventured forth
to join the throng; while the 'Varsity
twins, with their respective labels of
"Freshette" and "Freshie," gaze in innocent wonder at some of their more
sophisticated  neighbors.
The evening is drawing to a close, and
Miss Mclnnes is ready to award the
prizes for the most successful costumes.
Bashfully the winners approach the platform: Miss Gilley, Miss Elliott, Miss
McLennan, and "the" twins—Misses
Cope and Nicol. With the "home waltz"
comes the ubiquitous janitor with broom
and shovel, and lo! the long-anticipated
and much-talked-of third "High Jinks"
is at an end. The gay groups of dancers
melt away; silence returns to the hall;
and the empty spaces of the floor wait
lonely till their wanted benches are restored, and all traces of past merriment
Seniors' Hike
Rare Success
Drizzle! Drizzle! Snow! Rain! Hail!
But did we worry? Just listen to this
Despite the pessimistic utterances of
those who stayed at home, the hike was
a decided success. Twenty strong, we
boarded the North Vancouver ferry at
8.20 in the morning, and set forth. When
we arrived at the mountain itself the fun
began. Not satisfied with the monkey
antics of those swinging from branch
to branch and tree to tree, over danger
zones, some of the more enthusiastic
members provided entertainment by doing the "camel fling" at particularly slippery places.
For some reason Doc. Eastman's hat
seemed an excellent target for those in
the rear. If the snowballs missed Doc,
they were sure to hit Buck—so wc felt
Once arrived at the Mountaineering
Club's cabin, everybody set to work and
in a jiffy a huge fire welcomed us, the
water started boiling, and cheerfulness
reigned supreme. Were the eats good^
Well, you should have seen them! A
prize was offered for the one who could
continue eating longest. There were
five winners; but if Dr. Eastman won't
tell you who they were. I won't. After
lunch different games were played, and
all the old favorites from the song book
were  revived.
Before three o'clock the party started
on the downward trip, which was even
more interesting than the previous journey upwards. Eight more inches of
snow did a lot to make the trail seem an
entirely  different  one.
Our re-arrival at the ferry was announced by the famous class yell (by
Swencisky), and the still more bloodcurdling utterance of our Bolsheviki. So
ended the memorable Grouse Mountain
The members of Arts '20 wish to
thank Mr. Beltz, through whose kindness the use of the Mountaineering Club
cabin was  obtained.

U.B.C. Intermediates
Defeat Monarchs
University broke even in the two
hockey games at the Arena last Friday,
winning the intermediate and losing the
junior contest. As a result, the 'Varsity
intermediates are well out in front in
their league, while the juniors are running second to the Bluebirds.
The first period of the intermediate
game was even, Norm. Grimmett scoring the only goal on a pass from Wilson.
Monarchs evened the score soon after
the second session opened, but Ternan
again put 'Varsity one up when he
scored on a pass from Plummer. Grimmett added another goal soon after, and
Ternan made it 4-1 just before the
whistle. The Monarchs played a better
game in the last period and neither team
scored until the last minute of time when
a fast shot got by Lambert, leaving the
final  score  4-2.
The junior game was easy for the
Bluebirds, who handed the U.B.C. players a 5-1 defeat. The only 'Varsity goal
was    scored    by   Wilson    in    the" third
(Continued on Page 8)
The University Intermediates lost all
hope of winning the basketball championship of the city last Wednesday
night when they were defeated by the
Adanacs, of Westminster, by a 29-2:5
score. This was the deciding match of
the league, since before vhat evening
each team had dropped one game, and
each had an easy schedule for the remainder of the  season.
'Varsity started off with a rush, and,
at the end of five minutes, were leading
12-1. The Adanacs cut down this lead
in the remainder of the first half and at
the intermission U.B.C. lead 16-13. The
Adanacs took the lead early in the second half and were never headed, though
but one point separated the teams on
several occasions. The deciding points
were scored in the last minute of the
game. R. Anderson and H. Arkley were
the leading scorers for the losers1, while
Butler  shone  for  the Adanacs.

"Pandemonium!" thought I; "or have
I merely intruded on a private rehearsal
of charades?" Then it dawned upon me
that this was the meeting of the W. L.
S., regarding which I had been sent to
gather news—the annual entertainment
in four parts, each year taking charge of
one particular "stunt."
The curtain rises, Father Time turns
back our watches, and we are in the age
of Border Chivalry. Young Lochinvar
dashes across the scene on mettled
steed, and the bride laughs and blushes
at the sound of his martial step. They
trend one measure under the hypocritical eve of the bride's mother; "one
touch of her hand and one word in her
ear," and the maiden is away, beyond
pursuit, with Lochinvar. A spirited representation of the chase; and, on its
conclusion, the father and the bridegroom sink gracefully side by side to
the ground, overcome. And the Juniors
breathe freely again, their part of the
performance    successfully   accomplished.
Again the interval, and then we are
treated to a rehearsal of "Green Stockings" a la Arts '20. with a chorus and
"Academic Minuet" thrown in. which
finally becomes modernized, drawing
the  critical  "supervisor"  into  its mazes.
The scene changes and we are interested visitors at Miss U. B. C.'s first
school, showing her troubles with refractory pupils, and appreciating the
wisdom of the statement that if there
are  men  angels, they are  rare.
The curtain rises once more and we
witness "A Freshie's Study Hour." Regaled by tea and doughnuts, the Freshettes "talk shop," discussing various
members of the upper years, their fads
and their fancies. Musing on the truths
of this version of "As others see us,"
the audience departs, after a most amusing afternoon's  entertainment.
Lists of all members of the cast and
understudies, as well as committees to
assist in the staging of the spring play,
have now been posted. Miss Adams has
added the quality of versatility to her
many others. Fresh from her success as
the irresponsible Cecily of last year's
performance, she will now portray the
decidedly responsible and dignified Celia
Farradnv. with the green stockings.
Miss   Kirsteen   Leveson.   Arts   '2.'!;   Miss
D. G. Gill, a participant in last year's

Miss Miller needs no introduction. All
who enjoyed her last year's characterization of Miss Prism will look forward
eagerly to her representation of Aunt
Mr. B. Fraser will be the leading man.
As Colonel Smith, he will demonstrate
further the capacities so evident at
Christmas. Art Lord, as Faraday, has
advanced from the position of guardian
of one young lady to the venerable
father of four. Admiral Grice will be

On Tuesday evening, January 20, Dr.
E. H. Archibald delivered a lecture to
the Chemistry Society on "The Gases
of  the Atmosphere."
It is due to the discoveries and research of British chemists that most of
the gases in the atmosphere have become known to us. The first discovery
was made by Joseph Black, who found
that heated limestone gave off the same
weight of carbon dioxide as when it was
treated chemically. Daniel Rutherford,
of Edinburgh, isolated nitrogen, while
Joseph Priestly first prepared oxygen by
heating mercuric oxide.
Lord Rayleigh and Sir William Ramsay experimented with nitrogen by passing it over heated magnesium. They
found that there was always a residue
which was heavier than nitrogen. Cavendish found that by sparking in an
electric arc he had left a bubble of gas
which was unaffected by any chemical
reagent. To this inert substance he
gave the  name Argon.
Ramsay and Travers experimented
with argon and liquid air, and from them
succeeded in extracting three new inert
gases, which they named Krypton, Neon
and Xenon. Helium, an inert gas four
times as heavy as hydrogen, is also
found  in  the air in  minute quantities.
The lecture closed with a demonstration of Helium and Xenon gases in
Geissler tubes.
The next meeting will be on February
3. Mr. J. Allardyce will lecture on
Rugby matches with Victoria Intermediates and Centrals have been postponed one week.
The Y.M.C.A. held a very interesting
meeting at noon on Thursday, January
32nd, to hear reports from two of the
delegates who attended the Student
Volunteer Convention at Des Moines.
Mr. H. Cassidy, of Arts '23, spoke on
the history of the movement, stating
that it had been a recruiting agency for
foreign mission fields; that it was primarily a student movement, and that the
Christian student invariably felt that he
must go out and seek to tell all the
world of the Gospel. The student volunteers have been a means of bringing
missionaries, not from theological seminaries only, but from every kind of college. In doing this they had stimulated
home mission.work and had had a reflex
action upon the wider life of the church,
thereby promoting Christian statesmanship.
Mr. J. Mitchell then spoke of some
of the sectional meetings of the convention. In a very clear way he referred
to the conference on "The Near East"
and the Turkish persecutions in Armenia. He stated that students should
consider the relative needs of the various mission fields, and give their support to the one with the greatest relative need. In the light of the progress
which has been made in medical missions in recent years, the doctor going
to a foreign field is not making a sacrifice, but an investment. He described
the exhibit which was held in the large
auditorium, giving a real picture of conditions in various fields and methods
used to bring them the message of the
Gospel, and showing how that Gospel
of Christ is superior in every way to all
the heathen religions.

The Women's Undergraduate Society
have inaugurated an excellent system by
which each Senior and Junior woman is
given two Freshettes in order that she
may pour into their intent ears words
of wisdom and good counsel with regard
to their studies and other college activities.
The men have no such arrangement,
although it .is equally necessary. Students are selecting courses which will
be of no earthly use to them for the
vocation which they intend to follow.
But the taking of useless courses is not
the only fault. Six weeks ago a table
was published showing the number of
student members of the various societies. There were actually 489 students
attending lectures at this University who
belonged to no organization here. Of
this number over 60 per cent, were
Freshmen. Surely this speaks for itself.
Youths and maidens come here fresh
and green from High School, where they
were' herded into their only active organization—the High School Literary or
Athletic Society—and they expect to be
so treated again. But when they are
not, they are quite lost and know not
where to turn. They need someone to
point out the way in which they should
go. To be sure, they saw a splendid
announcement in the calendar to the effect that they would be assigned to
various members of the Faculty. But
no action has as yet been taken by that
body, so it remains to the Arts Men's
Undergrad. to do something. Yet how
much better it would be if both Faculty
and   A.M.U.S.   remedied   the   deficiency!
Students are usually more ready to
condemn than to praise. Points of
weakness in an organization are very
quickly criticized, but definite achievements are seldom extolled. It must not
be supposed, however, that the U.B.C. is
altogether lacking in appreciation. The
Players' Club and the Musical Society
have justly received the plaudits of the
last four sessions, and will undoubtedly
continue  to  be  treated  thus  generously
in the future. But there are two societies in the University which we cannot
forego congratulating this year. The
Men's Literary Society and the Agricultural Discussion Club have been doing
exceptionally fine work, and merit the
support of every student in the 'Varsity.
By mentioning these, it is not our.wish
to disparage in any way the efforts of
other organizations, but to rouse those
which are scarcely justifying their existence from their lethargy and to raise
them to a higher standard of usefulness
in their respective spheres.
•S      3p      v
It has never been our policy to encourage friction between the various
faculties in the University, and it is not
our intention here to suggest a continuance of the Science-Freshmen clash
this session. Undoubtedly, it is the hope
of the student body that there should
be no repetition of the wild scramble of
last year. Such conduct on the part
of college men is indefensible. But if
the two groups wish to cross swords in
a friendly, good-natured combat on the
King Edward campus, no one would object. It might be best if the custom
were abandoned completely; but, if it
must be, then some such suggestion
might well be considered.
What has happened to all the people
who used to send us nice letters, criticizing "The Ubysse.y"? Did they all "graduate" at Christmas?
Kenny Carlisle says that he is tired of
lying on the tables in the common room,
and that if chairs are not supplied soon
he will start an agitation in favor of
U.B.C. is clamoring for college pennants. If no society desires to supply
them, the Students' Council might consider the matter.
The sidewalk on the south side of the
Arts building may be suitable for California, but not for rainy Vancouver. Do
the authorities ever intend to improve
this walk?
The old signs, "Silence, Please," are
no longer present in the reading-room.
Apparently the good sense of the students is relied upon for quietness. Let's
be sensible.
Arts '20 has once more made good its
claim to originality by carrying out its
project of scaling Grouse Mountain amid
wintry conditions, and, what is more,
making a rare success of the trip.
Following the close of lectures on
Wednesday, February 4th, a short musical concert will be given in the auditorium at 3.15. As this is purely a student function no charge is being made,
and it is hoped that it will be well attended. It is the intention from now on
to hold such a concert about once a
month. In future it will be possible to
publish the programme with the announcement of the date. January 29, 1920

Dear Sir:—May I encroach upon your good
nature, and your space, to add a postscript
to my letter which you so kindly published
last week?
Although the Students' Council, as a
whole, has lacked the interest to reply openly to the criticisms of the students as expressed in the two letters in the last issue
of "The Ubyssey," certain individual members of that body have been justifying their
action re the "secret session" by stating
that the accused students expressed themselves as satisfied to be tried under the
condemned rule of procedure. Now this is
not even an ingenious excuse and has deluded no one—not even the Council itself.
It is scarcely a compliment to the mentality
of the student body that the Council expects
to distract our attention by a "red-herring"
of this variety. Of course, the "accused"
would agree to the "secret session" — they
would not be anxious to have their failings
given any wider publicity than necessary.
But what connection is there between that
and the fundamental issue on which the
Council is being criticized? The criticism
was (1) that the Council desired to hold
court in "secret session"; (2) that the students defeated the proposal because of the
"secret session"; (3) the Council knew why
the proposal was defeated, and (4) the
Council, contrary to these instructions, held
a court in "secret session." Is there any
Question here of letting the "accused"
choose  their form of trial?
It is not a question of the advisability or
practicability of the "secret session"; it is
not a question ot the wishes of those to be
tried: it is simply this, that the Council has
refused to carry out the wishes of the students; and, being unable to disavow their
act, have given no assurance that their offence  shall  not  be  repeated.
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—I would like to suggest that
pro-German propaganda be banned from the
columns of "The Ubyssey" for a period not
less than two hundred and fifty years.
While I do not argue with "Observer"
that the war was not won in the Argonne
and at Chateau-Thierry, I am strongly at
variance with him in regard to his estimate
of the German people. Indeed, lie has a
consummate "nerve" in voicing such sentiment  in  Canada at a  time  like   the  present.
"Observer's" is the first case on record of
a public boost of "fraternization" with Fritz
during the period of the armistice, while a
state of war still existed  with Germany.
A large number of the students of this
University have had dealings with this
"splendid people." The perfidious treachery
of the Hun has been burned too deeply into
the consciousness of these men to be quickly forgotten—not by isolated acts, but on a
wholesale scale, an enumeration of which
would prove odious to every returned man
in the institution. Sufhce'it to say in passing that there would have been fewer Canadian crosses stretched from Ypres to the
Somme if the Canadians had realized earlier
in the war the true nature of this "splendid
It was my lot, also, to spend considerable
time in Germany after the Armistice, in
Cologne, Bonn, Coblence and AViesbaden.
The longer I was there, the deeper became
my disgust for the German people, who were
so profuse in their protestations of friendship toward the Allied troops. Nine hundred and ninety-nine people out of a thousand immediately saw through their hypocritical camouflage. Can anyone imagine
Canadians, other than "conscientious objectors," welcoming as guests of honor any
members of a victorious Hun army to
Christmas and New Year's dinner, with the
war, and all it meant, so vivid in their
Let "Observer" ask our returned prisoners of the manner in which they were entertained at Christmas and New Year in '15,
'16 and '17 by the Germans.
Frankly,   I   cannot   altogether   understand
"Observer's"     great     admiration     for     the
"Maid in   Germany,"   much  less   his   evident
eagerness  to make  it  public.
Yours truly,
Arts '22. J.  P.   G.  McLEOn,
Editor  "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—Inasmuch as your editorial,
entitled "Tsolatiin," which appeared in last
week's "Ubyssey," points to lack of initiative on the part of the Men's Athletic Association, will you oblige by printing the following explanation?
Sime time ago a letter was received by
the president of our Alma Mater from the
president of the student body of the University of Manitoba, asking that we send delegates to a convention of students from the
four Western universities for the purpose of
forming an inter-collegiate athletic union to
promote competition in different branches
of sport. The plan set forth in this letter
was thoroughly discussed at a meeting of
the Students' Council, and it was decided, in
view of the expense entailed and owing to
the unsuitable conditions under which we
are working as regards athleV^s in general,
that we forego, for the present at least, any
active participation in these contests. When
we find ourselves in a better condition as
regards finances and athletic facilities, there
will be no difficulty in gaining admission to
the union formed by the other three universities.
The fact that we were asked to guarantee
$700 to the University of Alberta to come
here and play hockey will give you some
idea of what such competitions will mean in
a financial way.
Hoping this will  explain any doubts which
your editorial may have aroused,
I remain, sincerely yours,
A.  B.  LORD,
President Men's A. A.

"The Deportation of the Reds" proved
a very interesting topic at a meeting of
the Economics Discussion Club on
Thursday, January 22. Papers were read
by Miss Flattie MacArthur, Miss Ruth
Harrison and Mr. C. D. Smith, followed,
as usual, by open discussion.
Miss MacArthur upheld the action of
the United States in its removal of the
Reds, stating that these foreign radicals
hindered production and opposed government and labor organization. They
would tend to undermine the civilization
of the country if they were allowed to
propagate their ideas.
Miss Harrison took the opposite viewpoint, and ably developed her argument
along three lines: First, she stated that
the deportation of the Reds was an unnecessary step, since the States were in
no danger from them so long as the
laws of the country were applied. Secondly, the U. S. is under a certain obligation to other countries to help in
maintaining the peace of the world.
Granting that the Reds are a menace to
civilization, the States is shirking its responsibility by deporting these men. and
thus possibly increasing the trouble in
Europe. Lastly, Miss Harrison questioned the effectiveness of deportation in
restoring peace. The action will produce
hostility in those still in America and
perhaps aid the spreading of enthusiasm
in the Red movement.
Mr. Smith stated that the attitude of
the Reds towards the United States was
the result of the poor economic conditions existing in that country. It is
of no use to resort to ancient methods
of quelling rising ideas, for, as in the
olden days, such methods will prove entirely ineffective. The solution of the
problem lies in the bettering of the
economic conditions and thus removing
the cause of discontent.
Tn view of the fact that many of the
new members of the Agriculture Discussion Club, namely, the "Frosh," were as
yet unacquainted with the older members—to wit, the wise Sophomores attd
learned Juniors, the "powers that be"
ordered a "get - together - and - become-
acquainted" evening. And on this aforementioned evening there did assemble in
the auditorium many of the Faculty and
their wives and all the members of the
club; yea, even the smallest Freshie did
assemble thereto. And with them did
come many comely maidens from Arts
'22 and many others also; yea, even
grads. did come. And after a short
speech by Mr. George Boving there was
much talking and laughing and merrymaking, and even the Sophs, did condescend to play games with the Juniors
and Freshies, and, after many games and
a little dancing, it came to pass that
there was much feasting and eating of
chocolates. Whereupon, when everyone's appetite was satisfied, yea, when
even the ravenous Juniors had been appeased, President Klinck, in a short address, did give the members a few much
appreciated words of encouragement.
Thereupon the merrymaking did break
out anew until Mr. Traves announced:
"Ladies' choice for the home waltz."

Deer Mertel:
You remember, Mertel, I told you my
inishiashun into the Ushma Goosha
Flooie fraternity was set for last Tues.
nite. Well it apeers that they made a
misstake and ast 2 of us to be inishiated
on the same nite so they changed me to
Friday, so T started for Stanley Pk. at
10.30 becus I had to be at the end of the
nipe line road at midnite. I reeched the
bridge what leeds into the pk. about 11
and was neerly across it when "toot de
sweet" as they say in France it began
to go un and down. I was almost frightened, Mertel, but then I figgered that
the fellos what was in the frat was trye-
ing to scare me so I hung onto the rail
and waited till they got tired moveing
the bridge. Nothing else happened until I got to the end of the pipe line road
when it started to snow. Tt was just
midnite but none of the other fellos
showed up, so I walked back- and fro in
the snow all nite Mertel until dayl'te
and now I have a bad cold but nobodv
showed up. As soon as it- got lite I
started home and stopped at the bridge
to see how they moved it. Some Science fello must have fisgered the stunt
out. The next day a fello ast me did I
feel the earthquake last nite and I said
ves and laffed. I gess he must of been
in the frat Mertel becus else he wouldnt
of nowen about the bridge. I gess they
think they played a good joke on me
but the joke is on them. They cant fool
me. You no what 1 am, Mertel. Anyhow T dont no if T am in the frat or not
but I hope I am becus I like to help a
,Tood  bunch   of  fellos  out.
Well, Mertel, befour T went to the pk.
I dressed un in a old bath robe and went
to High Jinks witch is the name the
vvimmin call their annual party in this
University. I wouldnt of gone Mertel
becus nobody but wimmin is allowed but
another fello bet me 10 cts. I wouldnt
go and I would do anything for that
much money. Well they was all sorts
of funney costumes there and Janet Gilley. what does a lot of traveling and last
time went to Des Moines was there
dressed like a nigger, and one girl which
I was dancing with whose name is Beth
McLennan tried to make out she had a
beerd but she didnt fool me. I new it
was her hair. T had a grate time as T
do at all society funkshuns. You no
what  I  am,  Mertel.

Often you hear it said:   "The Barron is different!"
MAYBE it's the quality of the cuisine.    Perhaps it's the superiority of the music.
Again,   it   may   be   the   dance   floor—or   the atmosphere   that   pervades—or   the
character of the people.
PERHAPS   it   is   all   three--for   the   BARRON   is   different,   and   that   is   why   this
expression has become so respected.

There will be a track meet held at
Brockton Point, under the auspices of
the Track Club, on Wednesday, March
10th, 1920. Provision will be made for
competition in two divisions, Senior
(over 18 years) and Intermediate (18
years and under), for each of which a
championship is awarded. Wednesday
afternoons at the Point have been secured for general turnouts, but it is
hoped that contestants will train individually, as well. All entries must be
handed in to the secretary, H. W. McLean, '21, by Friday, February 27th.
The events follow (correct order to be
announced later) :
Intermediate — 100-yd. race. 220-yd.

four other teams to enter the league are:
R.N.W.M. Police. Hudson's Bay, Spencer's. Firemen. A series of eight games
has been arranged. The first game was
nlayed Tanuary 28th against the R. N.
W. M. PoFce. There is every hope for
a fine exhibition of soccer during the
coming series of games. Considerable
new material has been obtained. At a
recent meeting of the club Mr. Mark
handed in his resignation as manager.
Mr. Foley was elected to fill the vacancy.

Much regret is expressed at the untimely death of Mr. L. Jackson, of Science
'21, which occurred last Saturday night.
Fie was knocked down on Cambie Street
bridge the previous Sunday by an automobile, and so serious were his injuries
that he never regained consciousness.
Mr. Jackson was very popular among
the Science men, although he only returned to college this session, after
spending several years overseas in the
Engineers, where he held the rank of
captain. The funeral took place on

Colonel Mitlloy, or "the blind trooper,"
as he is popularly called, gave an enlightening address on party politics to
the Junior Economics Club and their
guests last Monday evening. Colonel
Mulloy distinguished himself in the Boer
war, where he unfortunately lost his eyesight. He is also a graduate in Political
Economy of Queen's College and Oxford  University.
"In studying party politics," said Col.
Mulloy, "the first thing to learn is the
characteristics of the two types of mind
—the National, or Conservative, on the
one hand and the Liberal on the other,
both terms, of course, being applied in a
broad sense. The Conservative kept the
preservation of the State always in view.
This race-consciousness, so strong in
the Nationalist mind, is based on the
law of" self-preservation. The Conservative upholds strong foreign policies
and fears the danger of a too unbalanced
change at home. The Liberal type of
mind," said the speaker, "was impelled
by that spirit which breathed on the face
of the waters and troubled them. The
Liberal strives for freedom and liberty,
and brooks no restraint. He revolts at
injustice and tyrannies, and distrusts
military training, force and armaments.
His outlook is inclined to be international. Both policies," asserted Col.
Mulloy, "pushed to the extreme, become
a tyranny and is equally ruinous. The
weaknesses of party politics lies in the
the extending of political organization
to the masses. Intellect rather than
prejudice should decide the casting of
the ballot if the highest and best form
of government  is to be  attained."
