Dr. Eastman Tells of Work
Of The league of Nations
In Discussion of Labor
". -____«—____»-_>
Dual Function of League—Prevention of War and Stabilising
Of World Conditions—Stressed by Former Head
0| History Department
Formulating a proposal for greater co-operation between
Canada and the League of Nations on matters of labor, Dr.
Mack Eastman, former Head of the Department of History, delivered an address on "Ten Years of International Labor Organization" in the auditorium Thursday.
President Klinck, when introducing the speaker, stated
that he was very pleased to welcome a former professor of the
University, and stressed the fact that this was the first occasion
whan lectiires had Wen cancelled foro     >       :"'»-   ' Vv'1 -' ■	
an outside speaker this year
In his address, Dr. Eastman stated
that there were two aspects of the
League, the first, as an organisation
purely for the prevention of war, arid
as a body which would eventually
have supra-governmental powers for
forcing a greater degree of co-operation between nations in tha matter
of equalizing social, political, financial
and labor conditions throughout the
world.
He had been asked to make a digression on the Manchurian situation, and said that in his opinion, it
was not the first nor,the most serious breach of international amity.
The German situation in WM was
tar more serious than the present
Slno-Japanese debacle, but ln his
opinion it will deal a hard blow to
the League. It will not, however,
aa the pessimists hope, deal a death
blow to the League.
In discussing the I.L.O. he stated
that yearly conventions ware held in
May and June, attended by four delegates from each member of the
League, two governmental delegate-,
' one from Labor and one representative of tiie employers. These man,
sitting in convention, made representations by a two-thlrda majority to
the various governments which they
represented. Canada, however wu
»4rirt_<«Nl-ft«nate posWleMMha*.tiia
provisions of the British North America Act made it Impossible for the
Federal government to formulate statutes dealing with the relations of
labor—these were the duties of the
Provinces. '
The former head of the History department is at present working on a
scheme whereby the Canadian provinces will be divided into four groups,
the Western Provinces, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritime provinces;
each of these groups to send a delegate with Gideon Robertson to the
conferences, and thus every four
years the ten provinces would have
bees represented; and it would tivn
be possible to obtain concerted action
in regard to ratifying the recommendations of the League. Up to the present Canada has only agreed to four
of the thirty-two decisions.

THE PETITION FOR
WORLD   DISARMAMENT
Following the meeting of students with Dr. Mack Eastman,
the petition of the League
Nations Society (University
section), will be released for
signatures. The Petition reads
as follows:
The nations have renounced
war. Let us also renounce the
instruments of war.
We, the undersigned undergraduate, graduate and Faculty
members of the Universities of
the -k>mlnion of Canada,
STAND FOR WORLD DISARMAMENT BY INTERNA-
TIONAL AGREEMENT.
We are convinced:
That competition in armaments is leading all countries
to ruin without bringing them
security, and that this policy
of competition renders further
wars Inevitable;
That wars in future will be
wars of indiscriminate destruction of human life;
That so long as measures of
disarmament are delayed, the
Governments' „ assurances of
peaceful policy will be valueless.
The committee In charge is
anxious that there will be a
large number of signatures go
forward to Ottawa, particularly
from the student section of the
country. These petitions are
being circulated in forty countries of the world and are to
be presented by the governments of these countries to the
Disarmament Conference. Petitions will be found on Notice
Boards In all buildings.

UFE AM) CUSTOMS
OF INDIAN TRIBES
GWtNJN MPER
The Historical Society held the
last meeting of the term at the home
of Mrs. G. E. Darby. A paper was
read by Henry Johnson on "Early
Life   Among   the   Coast   Indians."
Mr. Johnson stated that "it is almost certain that our Indian races
are a branch of the generalized
Mongolian types", and in the course
of the tpaper many Interesting parallels were drawn.
There are roughly four divisions
of the coast Indians, Haidas of
Queen Charlotte Islands, Tsimp-
aheans of Skeena and Noss districts
Clayoquot of Vancouver Island and
Sabot of the South West. The common jargon from Oregon to Alaska
was Chinook and was not an invention of the Hudsons Bay Company.
Each tribe had its own birth, marriage and burial customs. At birth,
special rites were conducted and
two tribes practised deformation of
the skull. Marriage was arranged
without consulting those vitally concerned and usually was exogamous.
Deaths were followed by periods of
feasting and it was the custom for
the dying man to be shown his coffin and to have all ills possessions
gathered about him.
"Women's rights" were recognized,
they Were given certain duties and
privileges. Polygamy was permitted
but for obvious reasons was confined  ln  practise to the  wealthy.
Slavery flourished at late as 1867.
Slaves were generally captives of
war and on the whole their treatment was not harsh. Land was held
communally.
The potlatch satisfied a twofold
desire in the Indian. It appealed to
his vanity and love of display and it
was a type of old age insurance as
partakers of gifts were expected to
return the favor with interest at a
later date.
War was the chief pastime up until  recently.
The Indians had very vague ideas
on religion and future existence.
"The Indian's greatest claim to a
culture lies in his handcraft art."
It is essentially applied. Different
tribes become especially adept ln
producing certain articles.
The effect of civilization has tended towards the extinction of the
race, though of late years there has
been an increase  in  population,
The Society was very fortunate in
having criticism of Mrs. Darby,
whose first hand knowledge and
splendid collection of curios was an
encouragement   to   the   discussion.
"The principal roles of 'H.M.S.
Pinafore,' to be produced February
24-27, will not be assigned until the
beginning of next term," states Bob
Brooks, President of the Musical
Society. "For the most part they
will be taken by former members of
the society." '
Tha choice in all eases has veen
narrowed down to two, which makes
ample allowance for understudies.
Only three of the title parts are being taken by new members. Neil
Perry, the leading tenor, did not
baling to yaet year's east, while Bob
Harcourt and Kay Coles are also
naw. ,
The leading rolei of 'Pinafore' will
oe Sir Joseph Porter, (lob Brooks,
Boh Cummlng), Capt. Corcoran,
(Nelson Allen, the sergeant of Police
In last years "Pirates," or Dick Buchanan). Ralph Rackstraw, (Neil
r'erry, Frank Snowsell). Dick Dead-
eye, (Bob Harcourt). Bob Beckett,
(Oordon Stead, Oordon Wilson)*
Josephine, (Alice Rows, who was
one of the waiting maids of last
years leading lady, understudied by
Kay Coles). Kay Coles will also take
tht part of "Hebe." Buttercup will
be portrayed by Sophie Witter, who
took the contralto load in last year's
"Pirates."
The chorus is larger than it has
aver been and th* orchestra has alao
been Increased in else. "The complete cast is above the average/'
says Mr. Williams, "and tiw opera
is well under way."
Rehearsals are numerous, two *n-
sembles a week, and three sectional
practises. It is hoped that th* society wtil be able to organise a short
trip at the end of the season. Owing
to the site of the cast it cannot be
very extensive, but <lt will possibly
include New Westminster, Victoria
and Chilliwack.
"At the same time," concludes Mr.
Williams, "I would like to take this
opportunity of mentioning the amount of work the Musical Society
has done for Varsity this year which
t imst^m^m^m^mmitt^m
alize. Tha muaicsl recitals, to begin
with—the first included the whole
society. The orchestra provided music tor the Danish Gymnasts, and in
this connection were told by the
Danish instructor that it was the
best music he had had since he left
Denmark. The "Brass and Woodwind" section formed a band and
appeared at the Rugby game on Saturday, where no doubt they were a
contributing factor to Varsity's success. Then at Homecoming, the
Musical Society provided the music
for the entire program, as well as
contributing an item. The orchestra
is now rehearsing music for the
Players Club, and no doubt will add
further laurels to itself in the
Chlrstmas Plays. Great credit is
due to Mr. Brooks, and Mr. Gordon
Wilson for their untiring work during the term."
NOTICE

"Radi^yn,.ia with us all the time
but its discoverer hides always behind the closed doors of her laboratory," stated Betty Gourre in her
paper given at the meeting of the
Women's Literary Forum on November 17 in Arts 105.
"Poland has already given to the
world many writers, musicians, and
poets," she said. "Now Poland has
given the world a new element, for
in the discovery of Radium, Madame
Curie stands alone in a new field,
not only as the finder of something
hitherto unknown, but also as a
pioneer in a branch of work where
women until now, have been fearful
to break in."
"Madame Curie is, strangely
enough, often thought to be French.
She comes, however, of a very old
Polish family, and possesses all the
characteristics of her race—wit, intelligence, vivid personality and
beauty.
"Very few of us ever stop to consider how many qualities are needed
to make up the mind of a great discoverer—imagination to see things
others have not thought possible,
calm inexorable logic to work out
possibilities, intuition for finding
out things, courage, determination,
and above all, patience to try again

INTEREST IS SHOWN
LN GOVEWWR'S POST
The question of the appointments
to be made on the University Board
of Governors has aroused Ingres*
throughout .he province, according
to the Hon. Joshua Hinchcliffe, minister of education.
In the past it was a difficult problem to find men who were willing
and able to fill this position, declared Mr. Hinchcliffe. He was
pleased to find this change, he added, for it shows "the public seeinu
to '.ipve awakened to the Importance
cJ the University and its adt»inls-
Uation and Is eager to have tl.e best
men appointed."
The post was vacated by th«, death
of Magistrate Shaw. As yet U.c government has not considered the appointment. Among those seeking
representation on the Board are the
farmers of Fraser Valley, who feel
that their increasing numbers warrant them a vote in the government
of the university.

Professor Marshall
Tells Institute
Value of Science
Speaking vnder the auspices of the
B. C. Academy of Science, Prof. M.
J. Marshall addressed the Vancouver
Institute on "Chemistry in Relation
to Industry" in Ap. Sc. 100, Monday
evening. The lecture was Illustrated
by lantern slides.
Professor Marshall stressed the
importance of Canada's contributions
towards industrial chemistry on a
world wide scale, and referred in
detail to the plants at Shnwingan,
Toronto and Trail.
The Canadian Electro - Products
Ltd. at Shawnigan Falls was established in 1915 as a result of the
scarcity of cordite in "Britain. In
order to manufacture cordite, either
acetone or acetic acid was necessary,
and since these could not be produced conveniently In England, the
British government Interested the
Shawnigan Water and Power Co.
ln a project for discovering a practical way to manufacture these product- on a large scale.
Willing to "play its part" th* Can-
aian company engaged the service?
of H. W. Matheson, a Dalhousie
graduate, who has since become
famous. Dr. Matheson, having employed a number of young Canadian chemists, began work on the project in the fall of 1915, and thirteen
months later, a two million dollar
plant had been erected and the first
shipment of acid was on its way to
England. Such a record had never
before been established in the history of industrial chemistry.
A second chemical plant was established in Toronto during the
war. This plant was used exclusively for the manufacture of acetone, Shawnigan producing acetic

JAPANESE EDUCATION
THEME OF ADDRESS
TO PHYSICS CLUB
"Japan has at least forty-three Universities and over 40,000 students,"
declared Dr. Toshio Takamlne, one
of the most famous physicists of that
country, when he spoke to the Phy-
ics Club on Wednesday afternoon.
Rather than explain his Advanced
researches in spectroscopy to his listeners, Dr. Takamine chose to tell
of university life and education in
his own country and something of
the work of his own institute,
"Education for the Japanese child
begins when his is four years old
and Is compulsory until he is fourteen. The scholar enters high school
when he is nineteen and graduates
from university at the age of twenty-five. Five years of post-grauate
study are usually necessary for
either a Ph. D. or anM.D." explained
the speaker. The university graduation is equivalent to the M.A. degree in Canada.
"One reason why children spend
fifteen years in the lower grades is
because of the difficulty of learning
the Japanese language Which involves thousands of characters," explained Dr. Takamine.
"They begin to study English and
either German or French at the age
of twelve. The reading of English
is not difficult to the Japanese as
the conversation and pronunciation." The speaker mentioned the
fact that the Chinese, students he
had met in America could converse
much better in English than the
Japanese  students  over  here.
After graduation from the Universities Japanese men and women can
find employment in different professions. Many take up teaching in
the secondary schools. A few continue in research studies.
Schools are overcrowded in Japan
and even the primary grades have
to be limited. To do this, entrance
examinations are set and the students must pass to continue. Often
fifty per cent of those who write
are forced to wait a year before
they can be advanced. Dr. Takamine stated that he expected there
will soon be a revision of the educational system in Japan.
In his travels in America he has
met students who wished to journey
to Japan and to research work there.
"A foreigner can live economically in
Japan if he is willing to adapt himself to the oriental customs," he
said, "but if you eat American food

with th* husband who does not appreciate hit wife's success   in   th*

AN EXPLANATION AND
AN APPEAL
The whole purpose and intent
of the "Advertiser* Pep Meeting" in. the Auditorium at noon
today, endftf the special advertising and articles in this Issue
of the "Ubyssey," !• simply
this: To bring to each individual student a full realisation
of the importance, first, of patronizing advertisers in the students' publications, particularly
the "Ubyssey;" and, secondly,
of letting the advertisers know
that he is from the University.
This is important, especially
at the present time, when busl-,
ness conditions In Vancouver,
as elsewhere, are decidedly bad.
Such being the case, advertising appropriations are in'general, reduced to a minimum
and bcslness men require to see
a definite return on expenditures if they are to consider
advertising. The only way in
which they can see this return
is by students patronizing them,
and saying they belong to tho
University. This applies equally
to clubs, classes, fraternities,
and all other organizations.
As for the importance of advertising, there is a large and
very definite cost attached to
the production of your paper
—and it is your paper—which
can be met in only two ways:—
by advertising receipts, and by
grants by Council from the
funds of the Alma Mater Society. Obviously, the smaller
the advertising receipts, the
greater the grant necessary
from the Council, and therefore
the smaller the funds available
for other deserving student activities.
Remember, the Publications
Board Business Staff, your representatives, are continually
obliged to give advertisers assurance of student support, so

A pep meeting to be held at noon
WiU feature a |»rogwim put on by tons whi
Us* advertising space in U.B.C. publications.
Ifca fcurpdet ol tne meeting ig to arouse stud-
ent interest hi thi importance of patronising
those firms which are willing to co-operate
with the University in this respect.
It 'is difficult to understand why the stud-
ant body as a whole pays so little attention
to tha important aspect of mutual advantage
covered by advertising patronage. Studenta
themselves pay every cent of the coat of their
publications; they would surely be well advised to obtain as great a returh as possible
from the advertising columns thereof. If students would endeavour to place the major portion of the business over which they, have dir-
eot personal control with those f-tmg which
advertise in Varsity publications and at the
same time make sure that the advertiser ig
informed that the purchaser is from the University, the volume of advertising in our publications could be increased several fold.
The average student does not spend legs
than $800 in the Oity during the college year.
At least a third of this sum is under the direct
disposal of the individual while considerably
more la paid out through campus organizations. With an enrolment of 2000 students this
means that members of the Alma Mater Society have between $400,000 and $500,000 Worth
of business to. give to what firms they choose.
It would be a conservative estimate to say
**"-&ar8 firm will on the) average return in advertising two per cent, of the value of business
received. This means that the A.M.S. coffers
Would be enriched to the extent of $8000 or
$10,000 from advertising returns. At present
only a small portion of such a sum is received
from this source.
Programs, on which the names of advertisers who use University publications are
listed, will be distributed at to-day's pep meeting. The Ubyssey makes an appeal that students keep these lists for reference and endeavour to direct their business into the channels
suggested.
RESERVE BOOKS
It is generally conceded that the system of
reserve bodes in the library is inadequate. But
with the present financial condition of the
University, everyone realizes that this state
of things must continue. It was to allow aa
many students as possible to have access to
those books in great demand, that the present
reserve system was inaugurated, permitting
the books to be kept out only two hours at a
time. This is a great inconvenience, when
a student has a lot of material to collect from
one book. But when he applies for the book,
only to be told that a member of faculty has
had it out perhaps for a week, the situation becomes impossible.
A professor assigns definite readings ln a
certain volume to his students, and expects
those readings to be done in a certain period
of time. He knows that the number of copies
of this book in the library is limited. Perhaps
there is only one. Yet he uses his position
as a member of Faculty to make this book out
of the library, and make it impossible for students to do their work.
If members of Faculty must use these books,
at least they should adhere to the same rules
that govern students, and use the books only
for the prescribed two hours. It is only fair
to the students.
Acknowledgement must be made, however,
to those members of Faculty who not only cooperate with the students in not using the
reserve shelves, but also place copies, from
their own libraries, of volumes difficult to
obtain, at the djsposal of their students, either
by placing them on the reserve shelves, or by
loaning them personally. The majority of
professors are considerate in this respect. It
is the small minority who, by their failure to
co-operate, cause so much inconvenience.
Ohio leads all the states in the number of
colleges. It has 41. New York has 40, Pennsylvania 38 and Illinois 23.

places for parroting facts.—John Gould Fletcher.

Service One or more of the Ubyssey's advertisers will be able to meet your
needs.
The business staff has been making a special drive for advertising, a feature of Which
will be the series of skits to be put on by the
advertisers in the Auditorium at noon today.
Business conditions in Vancouver are said to
be Worse than moat of us realize. It ia more
difficult to secure advertising, yet student
publications depend bh this revenue to meet
a large proportion of their expenses. The situation is serious.
These firms expect business to result from
advertising, and so it is imperative that they
be patronized by students. When about to
make a purchase, therefore, give your business
to those who advertise in your paper. Often
you will see special terms offered to students,
and it pays to take advantage of them.

"W. U. Executive Needs Clothes" was a
rather alarming headline in the last issue,
and it immediately aroused my keenest sympathy. I felt that if this was the
W. V. Needs case, atudenta should certainly
Clothing gee to it that this Worthy exe
cutive is properly clothed, but
it turned out that the raiment ig desired for
quite another purpose—in fact, for what the
reporter, forgetting hla rules, called a "laudable" effort to relieve distress among the poor.
Of course it is a laudable effort, and it is to
be hoped that a satisfactory response will be
made, few atudenta, however, have spare
clothing to donate, and it might have been
better if a fund had been raised, by tagging
or otherwise, and the proceeds given to the
Welfare federation or the Santa Claus Fund.
0       *        *
The self-styled "Realist," again heard from,
hurls at us a long quotation from the Toronto
Saturday Night, calling that journal "authoritative". "Saturday Night" made
Press a deservedly high reputation
Propaganda because of its financial section,
but one does not expect to find
in it progressive economic, social or political
thought. The article quoted is unreasoned,
anti-social propaganda. If you like it, well
and good.   I didn't.
It is regrettable that many believe all they,
read in papers and periodicals. Fortunately
our press is very fair in its presentation of
news, but the alert reader will detect propaganda in the most impartial news columns. For
example, take a Vancouver paper's unjourn-
alistic report on the Kitsilano High School
band's tour: "An amusing experience happened to the boys at Moose Jaw. The local
committee of welcome had expected to meet
an Indian band, apparently because of the
Indian name of the organization. When they
saw clean, well-set-up white lads, they let out
a whoop, and nothing was too good for the
boys."
Again, newspaper impressions we get of
such outstanding men as leaders of industry
are often idealized. Compare your impressions
of Henry Ford with that in "The Despot of
Dearborn" by Edmund Wilson in Scribner's
July number.
And again, it is noticeable that we are encouraged to believe governments cannot
operate businesses successfully. There is rejoicing when governmental enterprises show
deficits or revert to private hands.
I have already remarked on the biased
British election story in a local paper recently.
The point is, that by selection or rejection
of material (e.g., last summer one paper reported the speeches of Dr. Lyle Telford, a
Socialist leader, quite fully, and another briefly when at all), by "playing up" certain stories
and "playing down" others, by actual bias or
misrepresentation in reports that should be
impartial, newspapers influence the views of
their readers.
Critical people learn to distinguish fact
from propaganda. Alert students, therefore,
will not have been impressed greatly by
"Realist's" "Saturday Night" article. It is
interesting to compare the opinions of that
journal with those of a publication such as
The New Republic. Then you can take your
choice.
Before leaving the subject, an editorial in
the Alberta "Gateway" is timely. "It is the
generally accepted view that most large newspapers are not newspapers in the original
sense of the word; news has definitely yielded
priority of importance to "big business" interests ... All too often, the "best public interests" are conducive only to the swelling
of the cash reserves of ever-hungry corporation or political treasuries . . . the "controlled" editor ... is merely a machine capable of assembling nice-sounding phrases in
accordance with dictated ideas . . . Thank
you; we do not aspire to be a slave to bay-
windowed gentlemen with more selfish acquisitiveness than brains or humanity; we envy
the editors of few large newspapers."

#. 0M» Daw. address the
Varsity Christian Union on Friday
last and took as his subject "How
Do We Know the Bible is the Word
of God?" The speaker pointed out
in a most interesting wiy, th* many
reasons by which we know the Bible
to be the word ot Gtod. First ther*
Is the testimony of the Bible itself,
for many, many times are such
words as, "Thus salth the Lord,"
found in both new and old testaments. Then there are the many
promises which could only be made
and fulfilled by Gtod. Then Mr.
Daw1* dwelt on the "Unity and Oneness" of this great book. How was
it that so many writers of different
countries, of different classes, of
different ages, and in different languages all wrote in one manner and
agreed so perfectly. Only Ood could
have led them.
Further there are the testimonies
of past history and of fulfilled
prophesies. Also there Is the testimony of archaological discoveries,
all of which uphold the truths stated
In the Bible many years ago.
Finally there is the proof of the
many tests to which the Bible has
been subjected, but none have been
able to affect'It ln any way. Denial
and cursing have not stamped it out.
Mr. Dawe truly said "Only Ood in
the Book has saved It from destruction."

The Rev. A. Tonkin discussed "An
International Police Force or the
Economic Boycott," as the two weapons at the disposal ot th* League of
Notions, at the regular Tuesday noon
lecture of the Student Christian
Movement.
When th* League waa formed in
1919, the opinion most widely hold
was that the League would be of
no avail unless it was invested with
some concrete power by which it
might prevent a recurrence of the
horrors ot war through' which the
world had just passed. It was a
result of this widespread opinion that
the League was given sanctions of a
Military character. The covenant ef
the League states that if Arbitration
fails to settle a dispute peacefully It
can resort to extreme measures to
prevent an outbreak of war.
The two Weapons which the League
can use at such a crisis are an International Police Force or Economic
Boycott.
The Rev. Tonkin went on to discuss
the relative value of these two weapons in the task of maintaining peace
in the world today.
If an International Police Force
were used, a central cosmopolitan
military force would be set up. The
process of organizing such a body
would be far too slow to cope with
the present explosive conditions of
the world. On the other hand the
economic boycott is a far more practical and effective way of bringing
a nation to terms in an International
crisis. If the rest of the countries of
the world were to co-operate in stopping all trade with the offending nation, the effects in her economic condition would be so disastrous that she
would be forced to surrender.
The lecture was followed by a short
discussion.

On "College education"
IlOW that thi grads have come
and gone, wa are able to think
again.
We need to think again, too—a
late Editor saw to -that in his amazing leading article ln Friday's is-
sue—"College Education." I wish
to discuss this from the point of
View of a student who began hip
University career at twenty-three,
which statement at least defends me
from tha charge of too much youthful enthusiasm. I may also claim
to represent the, general view of tha
Anglican atudenta, who are solidly
behind Varaity. ,
It ii quite evident that the Homecoming Editor decided to drop a
bomb In the hope that It would explode and at least result in a discussion. But the result Is only a
five cant explosion, for he neither
gave us something new, nor even
supported an old case with new arguments. Ha made an Irish Stew out
of "College Humour," "The Communist's Weekly-Family News" J.
J. Butterfield Esq.—His Thoughts.
His Irish Stew is not a bomb!
But let us examine his contentions in comparison with our own
experience. He first refers to "an
almost automatic degree." Dear
studious readers and others, since
when were degress automatic? Are
you quite sure that you will gat' an
automatic SO par cant this Christinas
on tha prescribed two days study
before the exams? I seem to have
heard of one automatic degree—the
B. A. C.
Ha says soma curious things about
degrees and Jobs, If he had only re-
ferredx to his (the Grada) Annual
ha would have found a page with ft
list of people who have earned
1800,000 in scholarships and fellowships in graduate days, and they are
going to find their degrees worth
while. Our U. B. C. Grada are seal
tared all over thia North American
continent, aa University professors,
as civil servants, aa scientists, and
not least as the high school teachers
of this province—and the "school-
marm" is as vital to society as the
ex-editor of the Ubyssey who seams
to despise her.
As for the modern University system, it is not perfect, which la a
good thing. Wa moderns have ceased
too loc# for Immediate perfection, a
Victorian objective. We ark, rather,
interested in evolution, our own
evolution included. And surely tha
Ed. would not admit that he possesses tha precise ignorance which he
had whan led to embark on a University Course so as to "keep up
with the Jones." No, while at Varsity he was evolving into—what? An
office-boy, perhaps. He is anonymous, so we cannot know, nor can1
we be charged with being personal.
I have tha uncommon experience of
having been an offlce-byoy, In which
golden days I think that I read
more than comic strips. When that
Ed. has been an office-boy for two
years, he will find that comic strips
become boring, and he may even
begin to read some of his Freshman
English again—and then his education will begin, when he does something OF HIS OWN FREE WILL.
Confound him, he expects the University to be an association of shepherds, to lead us like sheep to the
pasture and almost to eat the grass
for us! When 1 came to Canada I
was quite Impressed with the independence which Canadians claim
as their birth-right. But I see this
man expects his University to lead
him beside the still waters until he
comes, to a crock of gold. Is that
independent?
I think that one's education is
largely a personal matter and that
no system can educate people who
refute to co-operate. I have yet to
find a student who, if he came with
the idea that he wanted to gat an
education, left dissatisfied. And by
education I Include athletic, social
and literary activities. An educated
men la one who by training received
is able to co-operate with society
and yet be an individual personality.
The man who leaves this University
dissatisfied Is the man who stands
apart and refuses to co-operate with
his profeuou and class-mates.
And so, for this man it is no new
thing to despise fellow graduates for
he has gone through life despising
things.
If you would have the truei! answer to our pessimistic Ed., you will
find it in Theatre Night, when thc
Grads come back to see how we are
carylng on the Blue and Gold colors.
They stand up to the call of "The
Class of 1920, '21, '22," and they are
not beggars or office-boys, but
merely people who are proud to be
back in the old atmosphere which
helped to make them what they are
—not dissatisfied beings, but strong
and efficient Canadian citizens, with
an interest in a life that includes
work, comic strips, and culture, In
due proportion. Yes—I think THAT
is the gift of "College Education."'
FICKLES FOR TUITION
At Drury College, Springfield, Missouri, tha president will accept pumpkins, cabbage, or home-canned pickles

MORROWS WILL AND COLLEGES
Dwight W. Morrow, a member of
the class of '95 at Amherst, left in his
wiU 1200,000 to the college to be used
at the discration of tha trustees. Ha
also left 125,000 to the wife of tha lata
George D. Olds, president-emeritus of
the college, and $28,000 to one of hla
classmates and tiie same sum to a
professor at Columbia. Smith College, Mrs. Morrow's Alma Mater, receives 9200,000 for "part of the endowment funds." Columbia Law School,
where Senator Morrow toqk his degrees, receives $80,000 and Union
theological Seminary the same
amount
BOMB GOALIE
According to the Lehigh "Brown
and White" St. John's College in An;
napoTls, Maryland, has a remarkable
goalie on its soccer team. Instead of
kicking or throwing the ball free of
tha goal he throws it up an hits it
with his fist "for at least 60 yards
down tha field."
FENN TO THE RESCUE
A loss of $1,000,000, one-sixth of the

FUN FOREMOST
"Fun is the most important thing in
college," Prof. Frank B. Snyder told
tha Northwestern University freshmen. "Friendship, cuts and faith are
tha other fruits of a college education. Fun is exercising the muscles
of the, mind." Professor Frank B.
Snyder Is brother ef Dr. E. D. Snyder, associate professor of English at

VOICE CULTURE
Students entering Columbia' University and Barnard College record
their voices on phonograph records

This enables accurate comparisons of

cross-section of speech of middle-class
America.
NEW COURSES
A northwestern college has inaugurated a course in "the perfect wife"
this year and Columbia has added to
Its Innumerable ones, a course in
"cold prevention." Using the college
station WSUI as a medium for practice, State University of Iowa haa
started the first college course in
radio announcing.

EDUCATION DESCRIBED
BY JAPANESE DOCTOR
THEY NEED A PROCTOR
A Yale professor encountered an in
teresting situation recently.   He was
surprised at the superiority of his
class in biology.   There was an ex
ceptionally bright blind boy in the
class who used a typewriter in ex
aminatlons  in  which  the  questions
were  answered  by  "yes"  or  "no."
Upon investigation he found that the
superiority of the class was due to
the fact that the students listened to
the number of taps.   So he instructed
the blind student to answer the questions In reverse.    The results were
astonishing.—The Juniatan.
(Continued from Page One)
vincing IS his role of the distinctly
terrifying Monsieur Jules, inventor
Of the game known in the Court as
"Hunt H Tiger." This u s fwm
of suicide with an element of chance
in it; the game is played by t<v\
one of whom is hunted, the other
the hunter. The lights are exth-
gulshed, and the former tinkles a
little bell, at which the latter shoots.
If the shot is faulty, the positions
are reversed tod the game proceeds.
On this night the game is played
by a young poet and a fashionable
court beauty, both of whom have
lost at love, and hope to better their
fortune* by death. Batty Jack is
charming as the scornful lady, Hugh
Pitmir competent is the mournful
poet.
"Vindication," the third play, was
directed by Sidney Risk, author and
director will known in Players Club
circles. Its theme is tragic, and it
appeara during ihe earlier parts to
be somewhat over-dramatized. This
appears to be tha fault of the play;
the audience does not know what is
really going on for some time after
the curtain rises.
The action is more implied than
actual. A young man ia being
hanged for tha murder of a girl, and
the scene is laid in. hli mother's
home just before tha execution;
gruesome enough. The old woman
it played by Margaret Powlett Her
part is difficult in that she never
mevaa from her chair during tiie
course of the plot Ada, her daughter-in-law, la done by Naomi Benyas, with a skilful combination of
BuUenness and pathos, with the real
spirit of tha woman only now and
then shining through. As has been
mentioned, the part Is marred during tha earlier action by the fact
that the audience does not know
whit it is all about, and Is inclined
to think that it is being over-played.
The conclusion, however, Justifies
tha acting, and Miss Benyas rises
powerfully to her climax. Alistair
Taylor is quite Harrowing as the
murdertrta brother. Minor parts of
tha clergyman anct the girl's mother
are played by C. R. Mathlson and
Frances TremSyhe.
The evening closed with a piece
In lighter vehv-"The Tender Passion," directed by Mrs. J. Lawrence
and Dr. Carrothers. It is very effectively staged—the scene being laid
on tha London Embankment where
a drunken tramp is discovered
asleep on a bench. Thia tramp, excellently played by Frank Miller, is
the philosopher of tiie play and passes sage remarks on the actions of
the two characters who set forth the
theme of "Tender Passion." "Woman
is the biggest mistake Nature ever
made," he assures Billy, the youthful Cockney portrayed by Fred Hob-
son. However, Billy is enamoured of
his Fancy, a housemaid with an ail-
too sympathetic nature. Eleanor
Walker takes this role; her voice
puts her at a disadvantage—It is altogether too refined for a London
housemaid, and "turns Canadian" at
awkward moments. The men sustain their accents better.
D. Martin is a "toff" who needs
the sympathy which Fancy is so
ready to bestow, and Bob McKeown
plays a passing policeman.
The performance will continue tonight and tomorrow night, Friday
being Faculty and Guest Night,
while guests and undergrads will attend on Saturday.—F. M. L.
Art Club Hears
On Venice
By Way of introducing the subject
of his address, "Veafci and Us Art"
Dr. A. F. fi. Clark Briefly sketched
the city's remarkable history at a
meeting of the Art Club on Tuesday
evening. "For it is necessary," he
said, "to know something of its
history and its people before ydu
o—i understand and appreciate its
art."
Commencing with its origin aa a
group of mud-fiats at the mouth of
tiit Po River, on which people from
the neighbouring towns sought refuge against the invading barbarians,
he traced its growth to the position
Of the leading city of Europe during
the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. While London and Paris ware
still struggling mediaeval towns,
Venice was a great commercial power, secure ln the strength of her
army and nivy and her strategic
position; the centre of an empire Including the Dalmatian coast and
most of Greece.
Many influences combined to
mould a style of art peculiarly Venetian; her close contact with Constantinople and tha East was clearly
reflected in her curios, almost hybrid, but at the same time exotic
and sumptuous architecture; her
proudly aristocratic, yet unusually
democratic spirit inspired ; many
noble paintings in praise of hfcr people and their history. By means of
lantern slides Dr, Clark Illustrated
thi style of architecture thus developed, and also many of the great
mural paintings with their ornate
gilded stucco frames. The palace ef
tha Doges and tha church of St.
Mark's, With its, peculiar domes, are
striking examples of tha blending
Oriental, Romanesque, and Gothic
Influences. Extravagant to the point
of bad taste yet It seems to harmonize with Venice's romantic situation,
with Its gondolas, its walled gardens
and its canals.
The members of the Club cannot
sufficiently express their gratitude
to Dr. Clark for such an interesting
lecture. It was decided that next
term the Club would meat on the
second and fourth Tuesdays et the
month instead of the first and third.'

Games To Be Arranged With Calgary Union Jacks, Regius
Capitals, Winnipeg Toilets, and St. Catherine
Collegiate Grads.
In one of the greatest exhibition tours ever planned on
the Pacific Coast, the Canadian Champion basketball squad of
the University of B.C. will travel across the continent playing
the outsanding teams in the Dominion during the Christmas
vacation, If plans announced by tht coast collage Ibis week are
completed. Following a conference between "Red" Reycrait,
president of Man's Athletics at the University of Manitoba,
and U.B.C. student officials, tentative dates ware sat for the
Blue and Oold Invasion of the prairies In the Western Canada
Intercollegiate hoop series this season. In the proposed schedule, tha Basketball trophy holders will meet tha Manitobana
In Winnipeg on January 6, and will nova westward playing
In Saskatoon and Edmonton against the Saskatchewan and
Alberta Varsities.
In the tew it is hoped that gamas» .      .   n  -.,, ■   i,.i	
can be arranged with Calgary, tha
Raymond Union Jacks, Altoria
champions last year, Regtua Cap*
itsla, who reifned In Saskatchewan
during the last season and Winnipeg
Toilers, perennial champions of
Manitoba.
there has also been a suggestion
that the Pacific coast squad should
take on one or mora of the Eastern
intercollegiate teams. There ia a
strong possibility that the Slue and
Gold Collegians will travel as far
as Ontario to appose 4he St. Catharine Collegiate Grade last year's dorn-
tyion finiallsts, and Assumption Col-
lege of Windsor, who came close to
eliminating the grada from the title
race. If tha Journey can be extended that far there should be little
difficulty in arranging games with
the University teams.
- „t present tha Blue and Gold
Squad is working out every noon
hour at the Point Orey gym, and
the boys expect to be in excellent
shape by the time the Christmas
exams heave In sight. The students
have probably more material to
work on that at the beginning of
any other season prior to this, and
there is little doubt of their ability
Coach
ARNOLD HENDERSON
The Blue and Gold Basket, squad
is fortunate in having Arnold Henderson as their coach. He was captain
of the Varsity team last year, which
won the Dominion of Canada Senior
Basketball Crown. Arnold held down
the position of guard last year and
knows his basketball from A to 2.

Skaters Asked
To Compete In
lee Carnival
A latter has been received by Stu-
dent's Council from the Rotary Club
of Vancouver advising the student
body of certain events in connection
with the lea Carnival which are
open to members of the University.
With regard to theae events the stu •
dents are reminded that the Rotary
Club has two handsome trophies, tha
Hotel Georgia Cup and the Upsett
Cup which are competed for by man
and woman respectively in class te-
lay races.
The carnival takes place at the.
Arena Friday, December the fourth,
and all class athletic rapa we urged
te got in touch with Bob 0»bome
at once ln order to insure a successful competition this year. These cops
were donated in 1M0, but the student* failed to take advantage of the
opportunity of adding the silverware
to the collection resting in th historic trophy case in the library. Tha
Rotary Club is envious to have the
University men snd women decide
tiie winners of these cops, and In-
cidantly give the public of Vancouver a chance to witness in action
the premier field of education in
thia province.
Students are reminded once again
that any information in connection
with this proposal may be obtained
direct from Bob Osborne, or by getting in touch with him through tha
Arts latter rack, and that these trophies are simply waiting for a sufficient number of competitors to
make a competition possible: they
can only be competed for by U.B.C.
students, and will become tiie property of the Alma Mater Society for
perpetual challenge competitions.
The winners of tiw cups witt add
to their classes' points for tho Governors' Cup.
U.B.C. senior English Rugby team
will have another idle weak-end,
while the former Varaity squad
which haa been dropped to tha second division will engage the Row*
ing dub at Balaclava. The U.B.C.
Intermediate crew will meet Bx-
King George at Renfrew, while the
Freshmen play Ex-Britannia at
Heather Park. All games will commence at 2:45.
Varsity has been dropped from tin
crowded senior league along with
Ex-Tech and with its wealth of
available material should prove a
strong contender for honors in the
lower division* It is likely that captain Dick Nixen will strengthen the
Miller Cup team with the stars of
,the Varsity fifteen and thus make
a stronger bid for the leadership of
this league.
It Is understood that aft or Christmas the U.B.C. second division team
will drop back into the third division thus strengthening the University entries in all divisions.
Artsmen Take
Farmers Into
Camp Tuesday
Arts '34's collection of soccer stars
prove too much for the fighting Aggie squad when the two aggregations
tangled in an inter-class soccer duel
at noon Tuesday. The final score
was 1-0 ln favor of the Artsmen.
The farmers, inspired by the success of their previous efforts, took
the offensive from the start, showing
nice team work. Individual stars
included in the aesthete crew soon
began to strut theis stuff however,
and only fine work by the agrarian
defence stopped the cultured ones
scoring in tiie initial period.
Half way through the second half
a magnificent overhead pass by an
artsman put the ball in the ruralists
goal mouth whence it was crashed
through for the only score of the
game.
Guard
Tha annual Inter-calss swimming
meat, postponed from last Monday,
will take place on Monday night at
Chalmer'a tank,
With the AUan-Boultbee trophy at
stake, competition promises to be
keen. Members of the swimming
club have bean working out together
for tha past two months, but on
Monday night friendship ceases and
everyone its out to win.
Student "experts" are conceding
Arts '84 a slight edge. The sophs
have lined up a formidable array of
sprint stars in their roster including Jimmy Wilson, New Westminster
"Y" star, Norm Oustafson, 100 yard
flash, Lloyd Monro, ex-Nanaimo
sprint man, and two, comparative
newcomers who mlsht upset the
dope-George Copeland and Sholto
Marlatt, the last named senior boy's
champion of Savary Island. These
boys, however, will not find, things
all theii own way. Harry Andlson,
perhaps the fastest tank men at Varsity, will be swimming for Agriculture, and the Artsmen will have to
show plenty of class to oust the
speedy Aggie.
Ron Wilson, star middle-distance
man will be out in Science colours.
Ron haa been out of active competition for a short while, but on the
strength of past performances should
garner a fair share of points for the
engineers. Ron will be remembered
as the 380 record-holder and conqueror of more than one Victoria
College star when there was an annual trip known as the "invasion"
in thia university. The other outstanding Science hope is Bill Mof-
fatt, who will endeavor to carry off
honors in the men's diving division.
Arts '88 seems to have the edge
in the women's division. Marion
gangster, Phyllis Boe, Jo MeDlarmld
and Mary McLean will be supporting the '83 banner and there ia a
good chance that they will be able
to pile up enough points to take
home the silverware.
Entries for the various events will
be taken at the tank, the first race
being scheduled for eight o'clock.
BOB OSBORNE
A sterling member of last year's
first-string basketball squad. Bob will
prove a tower of strength on this
year's team. He learned his basketball with Magee High School, and
his performance in last year's Dominion finals proved that he really did
learn.
AGGIES DEFEAT
ARTS '32 LADS
A lone tally from the foot of Mills
Clark gave the Aggie inter-class
soccer squad a victory over the Arts
'32 representatives in a closely contested duel at noon Thursday.
The struggle was not marked by a
high brand of football, nevertheless
it was the superior combination of
the farmers which gave them the
slight edge which resulted in the
single goal, scored about half way
through the second half.
By virtue of this victory Aggies
move into top position of the Arts
section of the league, having won
three games and lost one. Arts '34
are runners up with one win and
one draw in two games.

of the meeting.
ENGLANDERS
Varsity's second division soccer
squad will enter the fray once again
on Saturday when they encounter
Sons of England for the second and
last time in a regular league fixture
ft Dunbar Park, the game smarting
at 1:80 p.m. sharp.
The team has been enjoying a
two weeks rest since their last game
when they turned in a well deserved
victory over the flashy Regents, and
are favored to lower the Englanders'
colors in tomorrow's match. Members of the team Ȥ meeting today
in Arte 104, where they will be addressed by Dave Turner and Doc
Todd, at 18:D p.m. All players of
the senior team are requested to be
there on time, and any members of
the junior team art welcome Should!
they be interested.
On the last occasion of Varsity's
meeting the Sons of England club,
the Blue and Gold were extended to
the limit in taking the game by a
9-0 count and since then both teams
have greatly increased their playing strength so that tomorrow's
game will certainly be a hard
fought contest with lots of action.
Varsity soccermen have at least
an equal chance of finishing in
either first or second place in the
league this year! By taking all ef
their remaining games in thi balance of the league, the Blue and
Oold aquad would amass as many
points as the present \ leaders can
make if the laHter alao win every
one .of their ensuing fixtures.
It is unlikely that any changes will
be made in the lineup for Satur
day's game, aa it would undoubtedly
be a hard task to improve on the
squad which turned in such a fine
performance in downing the Regent* The following men will likely take the field at 2:80: Frattinger,
McGill, Grant, Waugh, Kozoolin,
MacDougal, J. Smith, O. Munday,
Costain, Dave Told, and Uurjr
Todd.
SNOW STORM STOPS
INTER-SCHOLASTIC
GRIDIRON FIXTURE
Old Man Weather upset the dope
on Wednesday when he came along
with a blinding snow-storm and
caused the inter-scholastic * Canadian
Rugby fixture between Magee and
Varsity to be cancelled.
Although the shaking, shivering,
Varsity gridders were preparing for
the game and thinking of "running
between the snowflakes," word came
when most of them were in their
birthday suits that the game was
cancelled.
Manager Arne Cliffe is now trying
to arrange the game for Saturday
afternoon and if he can bargain
with the weather man the game will
be played then. In doing this Varsity will have to default their last
senior city game With Meralomas,
but as they are unplaced in this
league, they have decided to fill the
Magee engagement instead.
Track Club To
Hold Practices
In Gymnasium
Gym practices every Friday
throughout the winter season will
be held by the'Track Club, it was
decided at a meeting Tuesday noon.
A competent instructor In gymnastics will be engegsd. to enable the
members of the club to keep in condition during the period when climatic conditions prevent outdoor
workouts. In this way Varsity's
track team will be at its best for
the big meet with the College of
Puget Sound next Spring.
This was the only Important business of the meeting, which was presided over by Ralph Thomas, President of the club.

CY LEE
Cy is one of the fastest players on
the Varsity team, and provided many
thrills for the crowds in the Canadian finals last year. He is an expert dribbler, and his "basket eye"
very seldom fails him. Cy has been
turning out this year and is already
showing top form.

A. B. MOORE, Manager
FOR fifty years Spalding has been supplying the
Athletic requirements of the leading Universities and Colleges throughout the World.
The amazing volume of business into which this
has grown during these years has encouraged
Spalding to include in their lines many new items
such as Athletic and Sports Clothing, Shoes and
other requisites for the individual. Selected and
manufactured with the knowledge of what is officially correct fc* Sport.
We feel confident that these new items will become, to the Student Body of the Universities and
Colleges, the same high standard of comparison,
that, the Spalding Athletic Equipment has been for
the past fifty years.
