This event Is the first round of this year's Prairie Debating League's contest, and marks the first attempt ot the U. B. o. to lay hands on the trophy
offered for competition among the universities ot Western Canada. The
U. B. 0. has already gained an enviable reputation for debating prowess
among Pacific Coast universities, and Is sure to make a name for itself
among its new opponents—the Universities ot Alberta, Saskatchewan and
In addition to the Vancouver lineup, a Vanity team has left to engage
ltt I Prairie Debating League contest
in Edmonton against the University
of Alberta. Other debates with
Prairie colleges will be staged from
time to time, through which local
students will have the opportunity
ot listening to soma ot the beat forensic talent In the Dominion.
The U. B. C, Home Team consists
ot Mr. H. Leslie Brown and Mr. Gordon Telford. Mr. Brown la the President of Arts '18, and one of the best
known men around the Unlvenlty.
He ranked high in the try-outs for
the imperial Debate, being among
the first six contestants. Mr. Brown

acting In the Christmas plays. This
is hla first inter-colleglate debate.
Mr, Telford filled the position of
spare on the team for the Oxford Donate last year. He was chosen for
the last' Saskatchewan Debate, but
Waa unable to take part, owing to an
*4&M!*%-,,Pt, scarlet fever. Hla clever

" The team that goes to Edmonton
Ja composed ot Messrs. Harry Purdy
And Russell Palmer. Mr. Purdy is a
Well known athlete and last year's
JPnsident of the Rugby Club. He
took part In inter-class debates of a
-couple of years ago. Mr. Purdy distinguished himself last year by the
way he tilled Mr. Telford's place on
the team against Saskatchewan with
-only forty-eight hours' notice.
Mr. Palmer has taken part in Vancouver Debating League contests during last term. This is his first big
debate. During his Freshman year,
Mr. Palmer was President of Arts
The Saskatchewan visiting team is

and S. Saper.
Mr. Graham Is President of the
University of Saskatchewan Debating
Directory, and an enthusiastic worker In the Interosts of university debating. He is a third year Agriculture student. Last year he was on

<on that occasion. He is bolder of
the Oratorical Club Cup for the College of Agriculture.
Mr. Solomon Sapper is a senior
law student, and graduated in Arts
in the University of Manitoba.
Throughout his university life at
Manitoba, as well as at Saskatchewan, he has always heen quick to
sponsor the Idea of university debating. Both Mr. Graham and Mr. Sapper are active members of the University of Saskatchewan League of
Nations Society.
The subject of tonight's debate Is:
"Resolved that a return to the traditional two-party system would he
beneficial to Canada." This resolution opens up vcnt fields for discussion, being ouo of the most discussed
topics of the day. With conditions us
they aro in Ottawa, every student, has
a definite opinion, either on oro side
or the other. The most painless
method of absorbing further knowledge on tho subject Is to attend to
night's debate, presented hy people
who have carefully studied the subject.
Students Receive
A letter has been received at the
registrar's office from W. 0. Murrln,
of the B.C.E.R. regarding certain
changes in rates which have been
made recently. It states that after
students living in Point Orey Municipality and desiring to travel between
their homes and Sasamat and Tenth
Avenue, via a Vancouver city line
may do so on payment ot a seven
cent settler's ticket. The same concession will apply to University students living on the Lulu island Hue
and boarding the car at any point
north of Kerrisdale, on payment of a
seven cent settler's ticket. Students
living on the interurban line at Kerrisdale or south of that point will desire, of course, to travel by the Wilson Road or Dunbar lines whloh
would be the shortest route and the
concession will therefore not apply in
such cases.
The above arrangement of paying
a seven cent settler's ticket and obtaining a transfer to Sasamat and
Tenth will place the students in Point
Orey Municipality on the same basis,
in respect of fare as is paid by students living within the limits of Vancouver City.
There 1b no need to make the usual
appeal for students to support their
Alma Mater by attending this debate.
Any student who has the slightest
interest in politics or debating has
already seen for himself that he must
not miss It. Students who positively
dislike these things would stay away
In any ease and never know what
they have missetl. Anybody can wee
tliut this is one of tho most important   events   of   the   University   year.
Special buses will operate to handle
the crowd.   The library will be open
for students staying from the afternoon to "study."
Education Humbles
Haughty Seniors
In Debate
Pedagogues or Ed. '26 triumphed
over revered Seniors In tho inter-
class debating round of Tuesday last.
The subject under fire was, "Resolved that a period of Labor Control
Would Be Beneficial to Canada."
Messrs. Buck and Kelly took the affirmative on behalf of Ed. '26, and
were opposed by MessrB. Bridge and
Turnbull of Arts '26. Professors
Keenlyslde and Christie with Mr.
Home, acted as Judges.
Mr. Buck opened proceedings by
attempting to prove that Labor had
a right to form a government. Other
parties stood for "Big Business," but
the Labor Party represented the
working people who formed the majority of Canadians. His next point
was Labor's competence to govern,
and the training undergone by Trades
Union leaders. The speaker tie-
nouueed the idea that Labor stood for
revolution, and concluded by giving
tho programme and ideals of Socialism,
Mr. J. Bridge showed the failure of
Labor governments in Great Britain
and Queensland, and detailed evidence to prove that Labor was not
competent to rule. Socialism was a
pipe dream, and facts should be
viewed In a sane light. If Labor rule
was a failure In other Anglo-Saxon
countries It would surely be a failure
In Canada. Lobs than 50 per cent, of
the people In Canada really belonged
to the "working class," the rest, chiefly farmers, being property owners.
Mr. Kelley, «d. '26, denied that
Labor government In Britain and
Queensland were parallels to Canada's future Labor rule. Canada
needed a change lu industrialism.
Labor represented all ranks of life
and will Include many present advanced supporters of the older parties.
Mr. Turnbull showed that Labor
control was unnecessary, would do no
good, and would, in fact, be detrimental to the country. Canada already had machinery to deal with
labor problems, and had passed social
The American Federation of Labor
had adopted the policy of non-partiz-
anshlp In politics. Canadian labor organizations should follow this example.
1 wish to apologize to the Student
Body that in my remarks at the Alma
Mater meeting Wednesday, I expressed sentiments that wero unparliamentary in character.
The Vigilants—As Seen By Some
Largest Alma Mater Meeting In Years shows that Student
Lethargy Not Unshaketble.   Man* Speakers*
On Wednesday noon in the Auditorium, one of the largest crowds that
has over attended an Almur Mater
meeting assembled to discuss the advisability of the vigilance committee.
Expressions of opinion were many
and as a result the meeting was
nearly two hours long. At the outset
President Tommy Wilkinson read and
excerpt from the Student's Council
minutes which stated that on November 10 a vigilance committee of ten
men had been appointed to control
discipline. By this, however, senior
students were not absolved from responsibility in enforcement of disl
clpllne. The meeting was then opened for public discussion. A motion
was made by J. Arnold, seconded by
H. A. Buchanan that the vigilance
committee be abolished, by which no
lack of confidence was expressed in
the council. The first speaker In support of the motion, Mr. Frank Levers,
claimed that the question of the
vigilance committee should have been
decided by a general meeting in the
first place. He was unable to offer
anything to replace the vigilance com
mitlee. He denounced the system
first of all because It was, as he
claimed, against all ethical principles. In It the students, as he* saw it,
were regarded as criminals and the
vigilants were stool pigeons. His
seoond objection was made on the
grounds that council had no author,
ity to appoint a vigilance committee
such aa they had. He also brought
to notice the fact that only last
year the authority for discipline
had been placed in the hands of a
not, he said, be entirely Ignored as it
obviously had been. Next Mr. Russell Palmer, in upholding the vigilance committee, stated that If the
names of the vigilance committee
definite committee Including presidents of the different undergraduate
societies and vice-presidents of the
upper yep.rs. This committee could
were made public, the result would
be the marshal! system which was
abolished only last year as undesirable. Since then the responsibility
for discipline had fallen on Ihe senior years, Tho vigilance committee,
he said, was not a police force; It was
merely a body of ten men who had
promised to remind offenders whenever they found them breaking the
law. Mr. Tommy Taylor then, speaking lor the council, said that they
had asked for the co-operation of the
senior students in enforcing dlaoip*
line and had not got It, so the vigilance committee waa appointed as
substitute. In refuting Mr, Leveri'
remarks Mr. Taylor said that it was
the first time that he had ever heard
of an executive that did not bars
power to appoint a committee. Aa tor
the honor part of it, ho said, the
vigilance system was merely an hon*
or system of ton men.
The next speaker, Mr. Gerald Star*
ens, President of Arts 29, expressed
a view that nobody should be afraid
of the villganoe committee who had
done nothing wrong. Ha did not consider it a apy system. In opposition
to the vigilants, Mr. David Warden
stated that he did not think coopoU
had authority for taking such a drat*
tlo step without appealing to the
student body. He desired the names
of the vigilance committee to be pub*
llslied. Mr. Earle Birney nest e*>
pressed his view, stating that be op*
posed the vigilance committee be*
cause It was not working. He upheld the real honor system which he
declared had never been really tried
here. Then Miss Bice Clegg opened
the women's end of the discussion,
bringing forward an idea of separata
class discipline. The fourth successive speaker against the vlgilgn.ee
committee, Mr. Ted Morrison, *%4]
ten, well-directed renuwiur denote**
the idea because it did not do Justice,
to the common sense of the student
body. Next came Mr. Johnny Oliver,
who, in the neatest speech of tha
meeting voiced his support of the
system. Mr. Morrison's ideal system,
he said, was all right except for the
fact that it would not work. It bad
failed here during the first two
months of the term and also at the
Universities of Alberta, California
and Washington. Until the senior
students realised their responsibilities in enforcing discipline, some such
systm, he said, was necessary. After
Mr. Oliver came, about ten other
speakers fairly evenly divided in
their opinions on tho matter. Finally Mr. Wilkinson withdrew from
the chair and gave reasons for council's adoption of a vigilance commit-
too. Then he called for a vote on
the abolition of the vigilance committee. The result was 444 to 299, in
favour of its relentlon. The meeting
then broke up lu time for two o'clock
Tribute Received from Puget Sound
Miss Helen Dobio and Mlsn Jean
Graham, who represented Varsity in
the debates at the College of Puget
Sound last week, report that they
had a very Interesting trip. Although the U. B. C. girls won a unanimous decision, the Tacoma team—
composed of Miss Lillian Burkland
and Miss Constance Thayere, presented very convincing arguments In a
clear and logical manner.
The girls were royally entertained
and enjoyed themselves very much.
They say that the C.P.S. football men
spoke very highly of the treatment
which they received while they were
guests hero last October, and have
formed a very high eonceptlon of
Cnnmllnii sportsmanship. Witness
this extract from (he write-up of the
game which appeared In the C. P. S,
"Trail"  on October   lfl,  1925:
"The loggers played a great game,
nml earned the victory which they
won. Hut, after all, much of our admiration goes lo the on tilt who played an u it la in 11 la r game with minds us
ulert, mid tempers as smooth, as those
Canadians showed from beginning to
end. They have some men who
would be assets to any college team
in the country; what is more, they
have one characteristic which would
be an asset to every team, and to
every rooter, In the country—that
spirit of friendliness and good sportsman ship which will remain, to many
of us, the outstanding memory of a
day which made football history.
They come to visit us next year.
Welcome, 'Varsity of British Columbia! May you have reason to like

such  a tribute  from another college.

Correspondence    j
On motion of tho .Student'm Council, nt the final meeting of tlio
fall term, it was decided to give the Htudent Hotly tho opportunity of
electing whether or not advertising is to appear in this year's Annual.
During previous years ndvertisentcnts have been solicited nnd run
In this publication as a mutter of course, but with tlio decision of tho
Board this year that tho year book was to undergo changes with a
View to improving its quality, it wns felt by many that tho appear-
aitoe of advertising matter would be likely to offset any added attractiveness achieved.
Some five hundred dollars extra would probably accrue to student funds, if advertising was solicited. In addition, it must also be
Considered that the Annual will this year probably cost three cr
four hundred dollars more than last year. The Council, however,
it the time of granting, decided to allot a sufficient sum for alma
mater funds to cover over expenditure.
The question to be settled by the students, therefore, is whether
they consider the added attractiveness, which will undoubtedly be
!rained by excluding advertisements, is worth the five hundred clol-
ars. The advertisements, if run, would appear at the back of the
book, but even with the use of such a device, it Is certain the Annual
would not have the finished and "exclusive" appearance it would
have without such extraneous matter.
A ballot appears in this issue. It is expected that every student
will make use of his own privilege sufficiently to cast his ballot. The
poll will be regarded as a test of the apathy, or laok of it, amongst
the students of this University! Remember the question affects your
purge. Students of the three lower years will havo to pay one dollar
for their Annual.
Editor, Ubyssey. Dear Sir,—As the
time Is again coming around when
the Arts '20 relay will be the main
topic of discussion, I think it would
be advisable to "start something"
with • regard to the proposed change
of course. For years the relay has
been run over the same course—a
course which is dear to tradition because in former years it turned our
eyes in the direction of Point Grey,
it is possible that fow people realize
the significance of the race lo those
who were In the Fairview hovels. The
proposed change Is so radical that
tho Idea which originated the race 1b
entirely lost. If the course Is to be
changed at least let It be over the
old route with the finish out here.
This race in past years has been
something which helped to Keep the
Varsity In tho public eye.
To run it over the obscure and un
known bywayB of Point Grey will
not only menu the entire loss of lnter-
eat on the part of tho public but also
l think a loss of Interest by the runners themselves. The old course has
become so famous—the records so
bravely battled for—that to abolish
it entirely seems to lose the work of
years. It 1b a connecting link between the past and the present, To
break that link severs us entirely
from a time that many of us remember  with  something   like  sentiment.
Trusting that this will receive the
consideration of not only  the relay
runners but of all.
I remain,
Yours truly,
Last Sunday, in spit ot the foggy
weather in town, some twenty members made the trip up to the Club's
cabin on Grouse.
Ten ot the more energetic ones
set out for Goat Mountain, the peak
of which was reached by about three
The weather was excellent. A fow
hundred feet above the top ot Lons-
dal the upper limit of the fog was
passed, giving way to glorious sunshine and a clear blue sky. Only tie
presence of snow on the upper levels
made one realize that the month was
January and not June.
Passing over the peaks of Grouse
and Dam on the way to Goat, tho
snow conditions were quite good, but
only on the Northern slopes was the
crust of snow of sufficient strength
to permit of any glissading. The view
was quite good, with the exception of a billowy blanket of clouds
covering the lower levels.
Leaving Goat at 3,30 the party
made for the cabin, when, after
a short rest, they set out for home,
a bit weary, perhaps, hut satisfied
in knowing they had at least made
more of the wonderful weather above
the clouds than those who remained
close to sea level.
The members of La Causerie were
entertained at the home of Miss Alice
Myers on the eventng of January 6.
Jeau Woodrow gave a very interesting paper on the French Opera,
which, with several musical selections
served to make the evening a most
enjoyable one. As a result of the
business discussion it was decided to
have a Mock Trial at the next meeting which will be held ou January 20.
Students who are members of the

Those in charge of the Women's
Union Building Fund are more than
satisfied with the results of the Arctic Cake card scheme which was put
Into operation last term. Already
over 3,000 ot the cards have been collected, with the incidental result that
Miss Hansford Is no longer obliged
to pick them up from the Cafeteria
floor. If students continue to respond as they have done bo far, by
April, when the contest closes, tho
success of the undertaking will bo
assured. The question of how to dispose of the steamer ticket, valued at
$120, has not yet been decided. The
raffle Idea seems to be the most popular one.
Regarding further plans for the

Council Discusses
Student Discipline
A fast discussion of student disciplinarian administration featured
the meeting of Students Council on
Monday night.
Mr. Birney stood alone In maintaining that the Honor System would
function successfully to the full extent of Its fundamental principles If
given a fair trial at this institution.
Mr. Oliver, whilst recognizing the
merits of such an idealistic form of
student administration insisted that
some more definite disciplinary institution would be far more successful In its operation under present
Council arrived at the conclusion
that it might be advantageous to have
an expression of student opinion on
the relative merits of the present
system regulated by the vigilance
committee and acting on suggestions
previously received from the committee decided to call a general meeting of students on Wednesday noon.
During the reading of miscellaneous
correspondence, a petition requesting an explanation of the vigilance
committee was brought forward and
filed, as a decision had already been
made to call a meeting.
Following a discussion on the gymnasium question a committee was appointed to interview Sharpe and
Thompson on plans for (lie building
which Ihe students hope to construct.
A drive for .f'Jfi'i.iiiiu is contemplate.I,
but more details will be forthcoinlni.'.
Concerning notice boards, the
Hooter's Club has drawn up several
useful rules, to govern the use of
them. The regulations submitted
were ratified  by Couucil.
The evening of February 28, was set
aside for the Musical Society's annual spring recital.
Feeling the need for distinctive Varsity yells, the Council has granted $5
to the Varsity Rooter's Club to be
awarded to the composer of the most
original U.D.C. yell. Rules for the
competition and awarding of the prize
for the successful yell submitted are
in the hands of the Rooter's Club.
The newly inaugurated dance
orchestra, composed of Varsity musicians has been granted permission to
use Varsity name and crest.
In the course of general business,
several minor items were considered
and various letters filed. The Senior
B basketball team was given permission to play the touring Kelowua

Dear Mr. Hunter: On Tuesday
morning, Mr, Moore passed me In a

out to the University, saying that he
was going to a hiBtory lecture. Knowing this to be a lie, since there was
Bo history lecture, I refused indignantly. Did I do right?
Answer: Yes, from my knowledge
ot Mr. Moore, I would say you did
perfectly right.
Dear Mr. Hunter: I am going to

"Well," eaid the other editor, as
wo returned to the office from the
Alma Mater meeting, "that just goes
to show that the minority, as I havo
always said, is always right." "Well,"
I replied with a happy thought, "if
it hadn't been for the froshmen we
would have won, and wn started them
thinking. They'll see their mistake
in a few months' time." "Yon," said
the other Editor, "and by that time
there'll be a new crop."
It was at this moment that Ivamay
barged into the office. "Love,
Xerxes," she called, "I've come for
my second lesson. The last worked
fine. I've got to know six new men,
and they all love me, or like me. But
I still think I'll lose the election.
That's why I want my second lesson. Please, Xerxes." And she ran
ber fingers through my hair.
"Well," I said, "this lesson will be
on the Psychology of the psychological moment. The first thing is to
pick the right man. You cannot pet
with more than two men at the same
time and got away with it. This
holds for both sexes. I, from my
own experU ,e, havo had several
sad occurrences which bear this out.
The next thing is to make the best
of your opportunities. Say you havo
picked Tommy Berto, the thing to do
is to attract him to you. After you
have met him as, I outlined to you
in the last lesson, make a date to go
down to tea with him, and In tho
meantime study up on the book of
etiquette, and Eleanor Olyn. Then

Brlff, that's good, even it I do say it

Ode  To  The University  Bus
What    fearaome    monster    doth   approach us  now?
Is It some elephant or moutrous cow
From out some firobdlgnaglan stable?
Let's make our safe escape while we
are able!
I tremble as I watch It In Its wrath,
Snorting  at  every  Ford  that  blocks
Its path.
Silly!    It Is the bus.
They'll   let you  stroke   Its  hood,
If you are good.
See!    After all It Is a genial sort,
It safely makes the voyage from port
to port—
The while we stand on someone else's
In seven minutes neat.
It only forages on gas, and  oil,
And does not make of human flesh a
A   la   "The   Lost   World"   of   Conan
Tls not a monster but a motor car.
'Til good enough for us though  not,
of course, our betters,
And on   Its   aide   we   see. the magic
B. C.   E.   R.
"Why don't, you go to the University of British Coluumbla for a quarter?"
"My stomach wouldn't stand It."
—IT.  of Wash.  Columns,
(Ed. Note. The above Joke mystified us for some time, until we recalled the Washington Freshman
football team's visit here. Then a
great light dawned.)
"My regard," said I, "Is all for the
old." At the same time I made a
mental reservation In favour of the
newest editor; besides I was thinking of other things. To be explicit,
I wus considering the proposal to
change the course of the Arts '20
relay, and I And myself unalterably
opposed to any re-routing of our college marathon. The present course
possesses a significance In our undergraduate eyes, for Its length measures our dreams, our struggles and
our final attainment from Fairview
to Point Orey. It is the road of our
pilgrlmabe, the highway ot our Hijlra,
the linear extent of our achievement.
So long as this course remains unchanged and this race is run, succeeding generations at U, B. 0. will
never forget the tradition ot a unified
student body such as there was during the time of the Student Campaign. It has been said that we have
nothing ot tradition in our,University
life; this statement may become
true, if we do not recognise and cherish the tew and youthful traditions
we have. The Arts '20 relay is an
Infant tradition, nnd unless prompt
action is taken, stands in grave danger of death by murder.
In an unfortunate attempt to be
witty, the distinguished moron to
whom our inexperienced editorial
staff had delegated the important
task of adequately describing the late
and unlamented pep meeting recently
perpetrated hy the Men's Lit., has
succeeded only In revealing the colossal, stupendous, and unfathomable
profundity ot his own notorious Ignorance. In referring to our editorial
self as the "funny man of Education
'26," this pseudo-journalist has irrevocably disclosed the woeful fact
that he has never read this page.
Nobody, not even our best friend,
has heretofore accused us of being
funny. In fact, the letters from "Disgusted Reader," "Pro Bono Alma-
trio," all complain of the reverse on
this page, which we had always hop
ed contained the wit and humor of a
college. Praise from this source, as
Tommy Wilkinson says Is praise indeed."
Seriously though, the pep meeting
could have been worse. And It was
a step In the right direction. The
reason that pep meetings exist Is not
to amuse the student body, but to
bring them together to Infuse a little
college spirit Into them, if possible.
So (the logic of this, being unstated,
should be difficult to follow), wo
throw out the following suggestion
free of charge, and for nothing, to
that progressively minded person,
Mr. Allison Muxwell, Try a fow Friday noon song meetings, for no other
purpose than for holding them. If
It doesn't work, we will eat our
muckatorlal hat.

The first beam of the rising sun
gilded the little group of men v/ho
ware whispering together In low
tones. Two had doffed their richly
embroidered coats and were standing
apart, rolling up the sleeves of their
shirts. A look of unyielding determination was stamped on their features. Hatred glowed In their eyes
as they grimly regarded one another.
The other figures turned and withdrew to one side. A small man
opened a handbag and arranged strips
of linen. A black-robed priest murmured prayers. Then another man
strode forward with a pair of gleaming rapiers, and offered them to the
"Monsieur Stevens, you have Insulted me," said the taller figure. "I
demand an apology or I will be
avenged with your life blood,"
"Count do nuchanan," the other replied, "not only have you Insulted
me, but loti have Insulted the whole
Freshman  class.    Revenge  Is  mine."

Varsity To Meet
Tacoma Logffers
In Track Meet
Varsity's candidates tor honors on
the cinder path and Inter-class Relay
for 1926 will be out In force during
the coming weeks. With a possible
intercollegiate meet with the College
of Puget Bound billed for the early
weeks In March, lnter-class relay on
February 24 and Inter-class track and
field on March 8, the candidates will
have a busy season. The meet with
Tacoma Loggers is a real addition to
the programme as the Sounders are
about of the calibre of the Blue and
Gold squad and a real contest should
come oft.
Only three Varsity letter men will
be out to bear the burden of the
attack but tho talent among the
Freshman and other years will more
than oCset. the loss of the Letter
men of the Intercollegiate squad of
Harry Warren, letter man in the
sprints and Rhodes scholar will be
a strong favorite to cop the 100 and
220 yards, If he shows the form he
displayed against Cohen at Edmonton
In the conference meet of 1924. Warren should do much better than
22-2/5 in the 220 and 10-1/5 In the
100 on the fast Tacoma stadium track.
Les Buckley and Charlie Mottley
are the letter men In the middle distances from the 1921 team. It Is
likely that Buckley will flash his
wares over the 880 yard route, as he
showed during the past summer that,
he Is capable ot a two minute half
or better. Mottley will give Buckley
his greatest battle and may pass the
former Aggie veteran. Mottley however will concentrate on the 440 dash
where he has shown first class ability
and that event Is the weak point
among tin- track men. Mottley pushed .Murray of Manitoba to a 2-03 half
in lite IH2I meet and Cormlck ol
Alberta to a 4-11  mile.
In the mile aud two mile run Harold
McWUllanis and Ian Btilmer stars ot
lust years relay, inter-class meet and
Duttlop Road Race are the veterans
who will be out for a place on the
Balmer will concentrate on the two
mile run, and If he shows the ability
over this shorter distance, that he Is
capable of at three and five miles ho
will he an outstanding member of
the  team.
The strong candidates among non
letter men In track are Howard
Eaton, and Quene Yip lu the sprints,
Pat Taylor all round competition,
Frank Elliott pole vault and middle
distances, Eddie Mulhern middle instances, Harold Marion, Charles Whlt-
worth In the weights and middle distances.
Raton, Yip and Taylor all have lust
times to their credit in tho century
ami furlong flashes and Warren will
have lo slop to eclipse their brilliance.
Taylor can do everything well as
shown hy his marks In all round
competition. He won Victoria Colonist Rond Hare l!)2f>, distance lour anil

Ruggers On Trail
of Further Cups
In the competition for the McKechnie Cup, which Is the most coveted
trophy for English Rugby In the
West, Varsity has beaten Victoria
twice and has lost to Vancouver Rep.
once. Varsity will play Vancouver
again on February 20. This game is
being looked forward to with much
enthusiasm as the outstanding Rugby
classic of the season. Therefore, let
everyone keep February 20 open for
the big event. If Varsity wins it will
be tied with Vancouver, thus necesl-
tatlng another game.
Varsity's McKechnie Cup team is
entered In the Tlsdall Cup series.
The Tlsdall Cup is emblematlo of the
Provincial Championship, won In a
knockout series open to any club in
the Province. Varsity won the first
game last Saturday, the soore being
22—0. The neat game is to be played on January 80..
This year's team Is one of the flashiest that has represented Varsity for
several years. The whole squad is
remarkably light, but also remarkably fast and full of the right spirit.
The back division is especially brilliant, every member physically fit,
having been asked to turn out for
the all-mainland team. It is the expressed opinion of several of the
U. B. C. graduate stars that this
year's three-quarter line Is the cleverest Varsity ever had. These ex-
stars are very critical of their successors, it may be said. In the game
against the Olympic team in the holidays, Varsity's three-quarter line
showed marked superiority over the
Americans' heavy and fast back division. On the only two occasions that
the Canadians' three-quarter was
given the ball from the acrum, they
scored, after very, spectacular runs.
In Victoria, the team suffered a
great loss when Casey Caselmac,
alias "The Blond-haired Flash," alias
"The Infant Prodigy" fractured his
wrist. Casey has scintillated in every
game he has played. He is almost
without equal In the province as an
Inside three-quarter. Johnnie McLean, captain und wiug forward Is
undertaking the very difficult task of
changing his positlou In mid-season
to take Casey's place.
Varsity Men Face
Stiff Opposition
When the Invincible Kelowna Senior
H basketball team stsck up against
the flashy Blue and Gold Senior U
quintette next Saturday night, at Normal llytii, a tare battle is on rani.
The Kelowna boys have the honor of
trouncing Kamloops both home and
away this season, aud took the measure ol all the Coast invaders. Their
line up Includes Turk Lewis a former
New Westminster Senior A star, and
Doyle Showley a former Chicago star
who Is said to be a sure shot under
the basket.
The Varsity team has an enviable
record on the coast and the invaders
will Und the Blue and Gold tornado
reatly to break.
Relay Men Train
For Coming Event
What team will wear the Inter-
class Relay crown for 1926 after tha
24th February? Arts '27, the wearers
of the crown and record holders for
thu course reel they are quite willing.
Science 27 are hoping, Arts 29 are
sure as usual. Those seem to bo the
strongest teams In the running this
year, but you never can tell what
Arts 28, Science 29, Education 26 or
Arts 26 will do. Both Science 17
and Arts 27 lost some of their talent
and for that reason their chanoes are
greatly impaired. The Science men
finished third last year but with the
absence of Kerslaye due to ill health,
they will have difficulty in filling bis
position as be was their star performer over the long second lap. Arts 27
have Mottley, Mulhern, Elliott, Sturdy
ot last years championship squad as
a nucleus for another crack team.
They will have to develop four
more Nurmis to fill the places of
McKay, McKlnnon, McWUUams, and
Parmley. Arts '26 look like the dark
horse this year as they were last
year, only last year they never came
out in the light and finished a weak
fourth. The story may be different
this year as they have four of their
last years team back ready to do or
die and also three stars of very high
Pat Taylor, Sid Hopklnson, and
Cruise are the runners who may star
for the Freshman this year.
It is reported that Harold McWUUams Is hunting for brilliant candidates from Arts 28.

Rowing Club Forms
Plans For Season
A meeting of the University Rowing Club was held on Tuesday, January 18th, at noon In room 102 of the
Applied Science building. About
thirty were present.
The meeting was presided over by
Bill Bain, president of the club. He
spoke regarding the proposed activities of the club for the term.
The University's own boat house
will not be ready until next year, so
the club will be obliged to use the
Vancouver Rowing Club's Boathouse.
They will also have the use of one
of the Vancouver Rowing Club's
"eight," beside the one donated by the
University of Washington.
Practices will be held every Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. The
novices will first be taken out In "tub
pairs" under the instruction of one
of the older members of the Club,
and then they will be taken out In
lours with experienced men rowing
