UNIVERSITY
MOURNS FOR
DRljIULLIN
: Head of Bacteriology Department Dies at Victoria
On the 29th day of August, the University of British Columbia suffered a
great loss in the death, at Victoria, of
Dr. R. H. Mullin, head of the Department of Bacteriology and Public
Health.
Dr. Mullin was born in Hamilton,
Ont. He took his degree in Arts at
the University of Toronto in 1899, and
his degree in medicine in 1902. After
being Demonstrator in Bacteriology in
the University of Toronto, he was for
eleven years on the staff of the University of Minnesota, rising from
Demonstrator to Professor in the Departments of Pathology and Bacteriology. He was also a Director of the
Laboratory Division of the Minnesota
Board of Health, and later was Director of the State Hygienic Laboratories
of Nevada.
In 1915, Dr. Mullin came to Vancouver and has ever since been identified
•with U. B. C. He was Director of
Laboratories and Bacteriologist at the
Vancouver General Hospital. The
Doctor was a member of many scientific associations in Vancouver, particularly of those devoted to pathology, public health and bacteriology.
At the time of his death Dr. Mullin
was in Victoria, attending the convention of the B" C. Hospital Association.
He was taken ill suddenly and died
shortly afterwards, following a hem-
•orrhage of the brain.
The Doctor was highly regarded in
his profession, and *was known as a
man of very sound judgment. He was
deeply interested in all matters in
connection with public health and in
the professioinal training of nurses.
He was the author of many important
publications and took a deep interest
in the work of the Board of Trade.
The sympathy of the University goes
out to Mrs. Mullin who was away in
the East at the time of her husband's
death. /
MUSICAL CLUB
RENEWS ACTIVITY
The Musical Society, now one of the
foremost clubs in the University, has
again resumed rehearsals. The Society affords ample opportunity to all
students interested in music, choral
or orchestral, and judging by the most
j successful efforts of the past few
years, is unquestionably realizing its
aim by arousing a genuine interest in
music in the University.
Mr. Wilbur G. Grant is now entering on his third year of leadership,
and, it is hoped and believed, will conduct the choir and orchestra to even
;greater success than was attained,-
!during the last two years. As fbrmer-

New Varsity Coaeh
Trains Track Stars
Jack (Buchanan is on Hand to
Assist Varsity Athletes
Above is a picture of Jack Buchanan,
former Alberta University track coach,
who is now training U.B.C. trackmen
to beat his former associates at Edmonton this fall. The students of this
University are fortunate to obtain the
services of so capable a coach as Jack,
and it is up to everyone to make
things as easy as possible for the new
coach this year. No one, except
those who have tried to coach different clubs at Varsity, knows what a
hard proposition *t is to get results
with such crowded conditions and
lack of equipment.
In spite of handicaps, however, Jack
is getting the track men out twice a
day on the King Edward campus, and
once a week down at the Brockton
Point oval. The freshmen have been
turning out well and are showing up
the other years. But Buchanan wants
new material. It is not necessary to
be a track man; the new coach is a
conditioner for every branch of athletics at College.
In the past everyone has been talking of the need for a coach, now that
Varsity has one everyone should turn
out and make him feel his efforts are
worth while. No matter what line of
athletics a student likes, running will
put him in shape, so everyone turn
out at noon and at three o'clock every
day, on the King Edward Campus.
Let's go!

BIG DAYS FOR FRESHMEN
Initiation Ceremonies, Mass Meeting and Freshman Reception
l/ To Take Place in Rapid Succession—
A New Form of Initiation
This is the week in which all attention is centred on the Freshmen.
Proceedings start Thursday night at
seven o'clock when the Frosh meet
for initiation. This initiation is a
radical departure from anything done
in the past: it wil remind the Freshmen that high school days are over,
and will seriously impress on them
their responsibilities as members of
the Alma Mater.
The first year classes, who will
bring their handbooks as passports,
will assemble in three rooms; the
Physics, Geology, and Chemistry lecture rooms, men and women together,
at seven sharp. While waiting for the
actual ceremony, which will take
place in the auditorium, the Freshmen
will be addressed on timely subjects
by members of the Students' Council,
who, with the assistance of the senior
year, are in charge of proceedings.
After the ceremony, the Frosh will
be presented with green ribbons, which
they must wear at all times in the
University precincts until the end of
the spring term. It is hoped that the
wearing of these ribbons will not only
help to bind the class together, but
also serve as a distinguishing mark.
The Freshmen, now full members of
the Alma Mater Society, will sit in a

For Oxforc^Pefcate
Freshmen and Sophomores
Urged to Take Part.
Excellent Training Afforded
Tryouts for places in the Oxford
debate will be held at the first meeting of the Men's Literary Society, to
take place at 8 p.m., Wednesday even-'
ing, Oct. 8, in the Physics Lecture
room.
The competition is open to all,
freshmen and sophomores being particularly urged to take part, since this,
the most important debate of the year,
will afford excellent training, even for
those who do not make a place, in the
development of forensic ability, a
quality much in demand since the
graduation of so many veteran debaters with the class of '24.
All men who are interested in public
speaking but who do not as yet wish
to attempt a tryout, are invited to attend in any case, since the meeting is
an open one in the hands of the Men's
Lit.
Candidates for team positions must
give a short speech on some aspect
of Socialism, either for or against.
body in Room Z, at the General Mass
Meeting, Friday noon. After the regular business of the Alma Mater Society has been transacted, various members of the Students' Council will outline for the particular benefit of the
Freshmen the organization and regula-
tioin of various student activities.
Lester Court on Friday night will
be the setting for the final act in the
welcome to the new class of the University, when the Annual Freshmen
Reception will be held. Tickets will
be issued early to all students who
wish to attend. This year the dance
will be strictly informal—there will
not even be programmes—and the
Students Council will act as an introduction committee to make sure that
there will be no lonesome freshmen
or freshettes.
This reception culminates the official
welcome of the student body to the
new year. It is hoped by Council that
the class will realize the sincerity of
the welcome, and show their appreciation by giving the closest co-operation
with the rest of the student body in
all their endeavors throughout the
term.
Former Instructress at
U.B.C. Meets Death
Princess &adzivil, Well Known
Here, Killed by Fall From
Cliff
The recent news of the death of
Princess Ladislas Radzivil came as a
great shock to many of this University,
who cherish warmest remembrances
of the unusually charming and- brilliantly clever Madamoiselle ^Karr-Simp-
son who taught French and Spanish
here in the 1919-20 session. Born in
1900, a member of the old French
aristocracy, she was sent to Vassar in
1914 as the adopted child of her guardian Dr. Simpson. Though barely 20
years old when at U. B. C. she had
graduated at the head of her class in
Vassar and had taken her M.A. under
Professor John Dewey. Upon the completion of her year's teaching here she
returned to France to be married to
Prince Radzivil, whose health had,
however, been so impaired by war
wounds that the marriage had to be
postponed. During this time Mile.
Karr-Simpson took the doctor's degree
from the Sorbonne and later gave
some special lectures on relativity at
Vassar and Columbia.
Returning to Europe in January,
1922, she was married to Prince Rad-

zivil who unfortunately died of pneu-
'monia about six months later. After
her husband's death the Princess again
plunged into study, her great panacea, and was planning to present herself for the advanced French degree of
Docteur de l'Etat which, undoubtedly
she would have attained had she lived.
Early in September she met instant
death by falling from a cliff at Mt.
Kineo, Maine. It was with keenest
regret that her many friends in Vancouver learned of this tragic ending
to so brilliant a career.
FRESHMEN
An Experience with a Member of this
Species.
By "XIX."
He stood at the main entrance of
that noble edifice, the Arts Building,
on the first day of this term. His face
was sad. His big blue eyes were filled
with tears. His nose and eyes were
very red. Had he been crying? Fearful visions of what might have happened rose to our mind. We thought
of the time when we had been a freshman. Was he lost? Had the pushing,
rushing, madding crowd of noisy students filled his little heart with fear?
Kind, helpful and sympathetic, as we
always are, we rushed to him to dry
his tears. "Dear little friend," we
whispered in his ear, "let us help you!
Tell us what is the matter! Don't cry.
we will look after you!" Rssponding
immediately to our sympathy, he cried,
"H !! I've godda cold!!!!"

ly, two concerts will be put on, one
before Christmas, probably in the
form of a student recital, and the
Grand Concert in the Spring. A meeting of the executive has been held, at
which plans were discussed for the
coming season, and, as last year, various recitals will be given, under the
auspices of the Glee Club. These recitals will be open to the student body.
Possibly one or two innovations will
be added to the year's program, which
will greatly stimulate interest
The Society is fortunate in again
having as President Miss Mary Pitten-
drigh, who, by her interest and efficiency, added materially to the success
of last year.
Tryouts of the applicants for membership were held last week, and
owing to the record number of students registered this year, the results
promise to be most favourable
The students are reminded that the
Christmas concert, held in the auditorium, is given primarily for their
benefit, and are urged to give it their
heartiest support. Needless to say
they will be amply rewarded.
A very important meeting of the
Musical Society will be held on Tuesday noon, October 7th, in the auditorium.
The executive is as follows:
Life Honorary President, Prof. E. H.
Russell; Honorary President, Dr. W.
L. MacDonald; President, Miss Mary
Pittendrigh, Ed. '25; Vice-President,
Mr. Carl Barton, Sc. '26; Secretary,
to be elected; Treasurer, Mr. E. H.
Nunn, Sc. '27; Women's Representative, to be elected; Men's Representative, Mr. Robt. H. Baylis, Sc. '26; Orchestra Representative, Mr. R. C. Robson, Sc. '27; Press Correspondent,
Miss Lorna Barton, Arts '26.
An examination of registration cards
has revealed to the registrar that several first and second year students
have registered for impossible courses. This fact has doubtless dawned
with unpleasant suddenness on the
students in question, but since no efforts have been irade to change the
courses, they are probably still in the
dark as to what they should do. A
careful study of pages fifty-three and
fifty-four in the calendar should clear
up all difficulties, and enable the freshman or sophomore of average intelligence to straighten out his course satisfactorily. If the explanation in the
calendar is too intricate, the student
may see the registrar in his office any
time from nine to five, and he will be
only too glad to assist him.

The Western Inter-Collegiate Track
Meet is held annually on the third
or fourth Saturday of October, which
is the 18th or 25th, most likely the
latter. This year the Varsity interclass track meet will be held if possible just before the Edmonton meet,
on the 22nd. The idea being that
track officials can pick out the best
men for the Inter-Collegiate. Interclass sports should always take second place to inter-collegiate events.
Every athlete in the college—visit
Harry Mosher who sits around the
North East corner of the hospital with
his leg in a plaster cast. Heggie's
stellar performances between the
posts for the Varsity first soccer team
have made him familiar to all students
of the University.
For the benefit of those who don't
know, Heggie was chosen out of all
the goal-tenders in Canada, to represent the Dominion at Australia when
the all-Canada team toured the Antipodes this summer. While there he
had the misfortune to have his leg
broken and is now having it reset.
Heggie will welcome the visit of any
of the students of U. B. C. before he
leaves the Hospital.
According to "Pug" Greggor, Varsity first team captain, the McKechnie
squad will be distributed amongst the
two Miller teams, the forwards on
one, and the three quarters on the
other. This should give new members
added confidence, working with first
team men, and in the near future
University rugby will benefit greatly
by this procedure.
VARSITY SOCCER
STARTS SATURDAY
Three Varsity soccer teams are getting ready to do their stuff on Saturday afternoon. Every student at University should turn out to one of these
three games. The feature encounter
will be when the first team tangles
with Vancouver City at Con Jones'
Park. This is the first game of the
year. Everyone should turn out and
give the boys a good send-off. Winning the first game is a big point and
everyone can help the Soccer Club and
the Varsity by lending his support.
The second team meets the Chinese
students at Heather Park at 3 p.m. in
the first round of the O. B. Allan Cup.
If students haven't time to go to Con
Jones' Park, Heather Park at Nineteenth and Heather, is convenient.
The venue of the third team encounter
is not announced yet.
Women Hoop Artists
Secure Good Coach
Basketball women of the University
have secured the services of Bill
Stone, a well-known basketballer ol
the Royal City. Bill Stone is one of
the best known coaches of the lower
Mainland. He will take charge of the
women immediately and will likely put
them at the top of the various leagues.
As a coach of the Duke of Connaught
High School last year he brought his
team to victory. St. Marks and other
organizations have attempted to have
him coach their teams, but in spite of
the many requests for his time he has
decided that Varsity will receive his
support.
The rugby club cannot be praised
too highly for its decision to try to
enter two teams in the Miller cup
series. This means that thirty odd
Varsity pigskin chasers will be doing
their stuff in senior company this
year. There is nothing like competition in fast company to bring out the
best in an athlete. The officials of the
rugby club are looking to the future.
Next year, allowing for a few grads,
there will be about twenty-five rugby
men who have played in first class
rugby, and U. B. C. should have the
greatest McKechnie squad they ever
had.
-o-
How many times has the football or
track trainer heard "I haven't got time
to practice?" from studious individuals
who, then immediately proceed to
waste an hour or two lounging around
the common room smoking the odd
Millbank, or, seeing that it is so early
in the term, perhaps a Melachrino.
There is no reason whatever why
every male student in this University
should not get himself a pair of shorts
and running shoes and an old sweater
and hoof it around King Edward track
at least once a day. Time given to
athletics is not time wasted; you are
improving yourself mentally and
physically. Time spent in the common room smoking is time wasted.
The writer is convinced that every
student in the college no matter how
busy, has time to go for a run if he
only makes up his mind to do it. And
he is the one that benefits by it.
 O	
Al Buchanan is back with us again
this year. Bucks' name and personality is linked up with rugby at U.
B. C., and he will be a great acquisition to the Varsity three-quarter line
this season. For speed, endurance
and rugby brains Buck is hard to beat.
 o ■
Another grad who is to make a welcome re-appearance is Rex Cameron,
one of the few men who have played
first team rugby and soccer at the
same time. The flashy right-winger
will get a warm welcome from the
soccer club. Rex took no small part
in putting the Varsity first soccer
eleven on the map two seasons ago,
the year they won the Mainland Cup.

AN APPEAL
On Thursday afternoons, while enjoying the latest issue of the "Ubyssey,,'
the thoughtful student may often wonder how our proverbially poor institution is enabled to distribute the paper
without charge. Undoubtedly it is
impossible for the Students' Council
to support it entirely by grants from
the treasury, as there are so many
demands upon it from other and just
as worthy sources. The deficit has to
be made up, and the only manner in
which it can be done, is by accepting
ads from business men in the city.
The revenue accruing to the "Ubyssey"
from these ads has grown steadily in
the past few years, until last year the
paper was supported almost entirely
by them. There is only one way of
making sure that this necessary income continues, and that is by patronizing the merchants who avail themselves of our columns. The benefit is
mutual, and the paper profits greatly.
Continual patronizing of stores advertised in the "Ubyssey" is the best way
to insure the existence of the paper.
Remember this the next time you go
shopping, and you, the paper, and the
University will all profit by it. Tuum
'Est!
NON-ACADEMIC ACTIVITIES
There are scores of students in the
University—and they are not all found
among the Freshmen, who have no
conception of the amount of work
done by their fellows along non-
academic lines. The management of
the Alma Mater Society and of the
Literary and Scientific Department,
the publishing of the weekly paper,
the direction of all sporting activities,
the rraintenance of the Literary Societies, burden with great pressure of
work and responsibility a very
small percentage of the students. It
does not seem just that the majority
should find their corporate affairs
supervised for them, that the Ubyssey
should appear regularly for their reading, afternoon and evening programmes should be provided for them
by the Literary Societies, and that
games should be scheduled for their
entertainment—the- price   of  all  this
being  a  severe  congestion  of  undertakings upon the minority.
Lower class men have time at their
disposal to do much of the spade-work,
which is a preliminary to more responsible undertakings. It cannot be
fair to enjoy at leisure the fruits of
the labor of others, without making
some contribution oneself to our community enterprises, and it is probably
only lack of thought, since it cannot
be lack of ability, that has brought
about this condition of affairs. Let
us hope that during this session, we
may to an increasing degree become
conscious of our individual responsibility in making our corporate undertakings a success.
BY THE WAY.
There are at present two classes of
students (?) in the reading room—the
ones who are just leaving to watch
the tennis tournament, and those who
are just arriving to discuss it.

That moment that seems a year—
when, after standing in the book-store
line-up for one hour and sixteen minutes, incidentally missing your first
Math. 1 lecture, during which time
you have contracted to purchase umpteen books for ump. shebas, you finally
totter into place, gasp out your order
and remembebr that you handed out
your last dollar to the fee-goddess
just before lining up.

Freshmen will be interested to
know that the latest variety of bow
tie is the William Tell—when you pull
the bow you hit the apple.
^ A sweeping sensation is in store for
all, if the plans of the upper years go
not astray. Mr. Tansley is thinking
of concentrating his efforts wholly
upon the lecture-rooms, leaving the
stairways and common rooms to the
unconscious but thorough work of the
gowned ones.

The old Muck column of the paper
has been discontinued, as it is felt that
until someone is discovered who is
able to edit a complete page of humorous matter, it will be much more satisfactory to run a single column of
jokes that almost anybody can understand. Contributions will be welcomed. Anyone wishing to contribute
should leave material in the rack in
the outer office of publications.
PRE-DENTAL STUDENTS
TO BE GIVEN CREDITS
Pre-dental students attending the
University of B. C. will be given credits
for their first year work here, according to Registrar Stanley W. Mathews,
who announced yesterday that he has
received word from the dean of the
Royal College of Dental Surgeons at
Toronto that U. B. C. men will be entered in their second year.
The requirements announced by the
Toronto Institution state that candidates, who register in U. B. C. as
pre-dental students and who have complete Arts matriculation, having completed successfully in first year Arts
subjects in English, French, Physics,
Chemistry and Biology will be given
credit for the first year at Toronto
and will be admitted without condition to the second year lectures in the
college.
Mr. Mathews stated that this information was the first of its kind received by the University and will save the
students who intend taking dental
courses considerable difficulty in arranging entrance into the eastern college.
Arts '28 Holds
First Meeting
Last Minute Instructions for
Initiation Night Given
Much enthusiasm was displayed
Tuesday noon, when nearly six hundred Freshies assembled in the Auditorium to elect a temporary president
and secretary for Arts '28. The meeting was presided over by Mr. H. B.
Smith, president of the Men's Undergraduate Society and Miss Grace
Smith, president of the Woman's Undergraduate Society. After a brief
address, Mr. Smith called for nominations. Mr. Gordon Ballentine and Miss
May Walker were chosen to give the
distress of the class during the next
month. Following the elections, Miss
Smith, in a short welcome speech, expressed the hope that the members of
Arts '28 would prove worthy of their
Alma Mater. The soccer activities
was briefly outlined by Mr. C. Arnott,
who stressed the fact that all interested Freshmen were especially welcomed by the trainers. Enthusiasm
reached a climax when Mr. C. Bishop,
yell leader, demonstrated how a "yell
should be yelled," and made six hundred Freshies try out their lungs in the
ever popular ''Kitsilano Capilano." A
hush fell over the audience, however,
when Mr. Thos Taylor, convenor for
the initiation, arose to give particulars for Thursday next. He stated
that there are to be three groups of
students. Those of group A to F are
to assemble in the Chemistry Lecture
Room, those of group G to N in the
Geology Lecture Room and those of
grup O to Z in the Physics Lecture
Room^ at 7 p.m. Thursday. The different divisions will be addressed by
members of the council, and every individual will be presented with a green
ribbon, which must be worn until the
end of the Spring term. This met
with a buzz of disapproval, but Freshies calmed down when Mr. Taylor declared that anyone should be proud
to belong to Arts '28. Students were
warned not to talk during the initiation. The penalty for not attending is
severe, such as receiving a public in-
iation before the student body. On
Friday next the Freshman's Reception
will be held; those Freshmen attending must wear their green ribbons.
Before concluding the meeting, Mr.
Smith requested that the Freshies pay
rarticular attention to the following
rules. (1) Not to talk in the library.
(2) To attend all meetings. (3) To
occupy the back benches in the auditorium. (4) To arise when any guest
or member of the Faculty approaches
the platform. (5) To carefully
watch the notice board for information
concerning the various activities. Mr.
Bishop then took the platform, and,
led the whole gathering in two lusty
yells for U. B. C.
Motorist: What is the charge for
this battery?
Garageman:    One and a half volts.
Motorist: What is that in American
money?

NOTICES
Editor The Ubyssey: —
Dear Sir: —
It is a deplorable situation when the
Players' Club of the University ot
British Columbia must erect a notice
board of its own in the college halls.
Surely every organization will not be
forced to take such measures to put
their notices before the public eye.
Last year a ruling was enforced which
compelled every person to mark the
date of posting. Surely a week is sufficient time for any notice to remain
on the notice board. How long must
we wait before the Students' Council
or Administration Office take action
to remove all signs which lack this
date of posting?
Yours   for  a   clean   board,
R. A. Schell, and
George Ledingham.
OUTDOOR CLUB
The first hike of the season was
held by the Outdoor's Club last weekend. Some of the members went up
Grouse on Saturday and stayed over
night, another*- gang joining them
Sunday morning. The weather was
ide^al and a good day's work was put
in on the cabin. About three more
days work it is hoped will see its completion.
The semi-annual meeting will be
held in room SI Science building,
Thursday noon. All interested are
invited to attend.
/MRS. KLINCK'S TEA
On Saturday, September 27th, the
out-of-town girls were entertained at
a delightful ''high tea" at the home of
Mrs. Klinck. The rooms were pleasingly decorated with autumn flowers.
Miss Bollert assisted the hostess in
receiving her guests.
The women of the Undergraduate
Executive had charge of the affair and,
as a result of their efforts, a charming
evening was spent in music, games
and contests. The senior girls took
this opportunity to teach the new
girls many of the college and campaign songs.
BASKETBALL
The first meeting of the basketbball
club will take place on Tuesday, Oct.
*7, at noon in room SI of the Physics
building. Everyone is asked to turn
out especially freshmen. Basketball
plans for the coming year will be discussed.
Women basketballers will practise
at the Normal Gym from 5 o'clock until 7 on Mondays and Wednesdays, the
coach attending all practices.
A- meeting- of all those interested in
Stack Boom privileges will be held
Thursday (to-day), at 3 p m., in Boom X.
FRESHMEN TO BE
^GUESTS FRIDAY
Come one, come all to the big fight
on Friday at Lester Court at 8 o'clock.
This is the night when both seniors
and freshmen turn out in full force,
the former to execute the duty of "re-
cepting" the freshmen, thus subjecting themselves to dire perils, and the
latter both to be "recepted" and to
get acquainted with the good-looking
upper years.
Unspeakable punishments are in
store for freshmen who do not dance
with senior women. (The injunction
that senior men dance with freshettes
is unnecessary, of course.) If people
plant their pedal extremities on your
pet corn, shove your feet heroically
under some one else's, and thereby
keep up the tradition and good-feeling
of the evening. Above all, remember
that freshies have to be "recepted,"
and that letters detailing injuries received from too violent contact will
not be dealt with by the Publications
Board.

CO-ED  ATHLETICS
Frosh Reception Tickets to he distributed Thursday, Council Office, 12 to S;
Friday, Council Offloe, l to 3.
y&ow that a new term has commenced, the various organizations are
getting under way with their activities. There are several athletic clubs
for the women students which have
proved successful as well as extremely  beneficial.
The Women's Basketball Club is one
of the most popular in the University,
possessing an excellent record.
For those fond of the open air there
is the Grass Hockey Club, whose success is chiefly due to Mrs. Boving, the
coach.
The Gymnasium Club meets once a
week and is for those who desire exercise and physical  culture.
The Swimming Club gives instruction in swimming, fancy diving, and
this year life-saving has been introduced.
The Track Club, a comparatively
new organization, specializes in running, jumping and throwing.
Thus, whatever athletic activity a
student is interested in there is a club
for her to join. It is hoped that, under
the able leadership of Miss Doris
Shorney, Women's Athletics will become more successful than ever.
TRACK
Women track and field stars are
asked by the executives of the women's organizations to get into shape
at once for the track meet when the
co-eds will do their stuff at Brockton
Point on the same day as the track
men. Athletic representatives of the
various classes are asked to find out
what material they have for the
sports. Freshettes interested will be
asked to meet early next week when
a representative will be chosen by
them to look after the interests of the
first year people in the track meet.
The list of events will be announced
at that meeting, according to Doris
Shorney, president of the women's
athletics.
GYMNASIUM
Gymnasium work for the women of
the University will commence Monday, it was announced by the president of the women's athletics, who
stated the Gym classes would be
taken from 4.15 to 5 o'clock every
Monday at St. George's Church, corner Laurel Street and Fourteenth Avenue. All interested in this activity are
asked to see either Frances Gignac or
Doris Shorney.

alarm clock for a birthday present?"
He—"You said you liked rings,
didn't you?"

EYES.
The eye that's black
May sparkle and flash,
And conquer the heart in a minute.
Yes,  yes,
And conquer the heart in a minute;
But the clear eye of blue
Half hidden from view
Has the musical charm of the linnet,
Yes, yes,
Has the musical charm of the linnet;
So I'll search for the eye
Half hidden and shy
With the musical charm of the linnet,
And others can sigh
For the flashing black eye
For the eye that can win in a minute,
Ha, ha,
For the eye that can win in a minute.

Oxford Debate
November 24th
Oxford debaters will speak in Vancouver, November 24, it was definitely
announced by James Craig, debates
manager, who stated that try-outs
would commence Monday in order that
the U. B. C. men could be chosen at
once. Five men will be appointed as
soon as possible. Three of those will
be chosen in later competitions to
speak with the Oxford men, while the
other two will be spares for the team.
The spares will likely represent Varsity in an international debate to be
arranged later.
Two'U. B. C. speakers, supported by
Malcolm MacDonald, son of Premier
Ramsay MacDonald, will uphold the
case of Socialism in the debate, while
one Varsity speaker will take sides
with two Oxford men in defending
Capital. The Oxford debaters are excellent speakers and the debate should
prove attractive to large numbers of
Vancouverites.
The Oxford team is being brought
here as part of the tour of U.S.A. and
Canada arranged by the Institute of
International Education with headquarters at New York. Immediately
before coming to the Coast the Oxford
men will speak at the University of
Alberta and are expected to recah this
city November 22na. The team is
composed of graduate members of Oxford and two of the members have
held positions as presidents of the student body.

STILL MARINE
A Freshette enquired at the library
if "The Red Boat" was in.
"We haven't that book"—she was
told. "Well it must be "The Scarlet
Launch" then."
No book with that title was listed in
the card catalogue, replied the assistant.
"But I am sure you have the book,"
insisted the Freshette, and drew from
her note book a slip of paper on which
something was written. "Oh, I beg
your pardon," she said blushing, "It's
"The Rugby Yacht," by a man named
Omar, that I want."
1st Freshette—"What does avoirdupois mean?"
2nd Freshette—"Well, I couldn't say
just what it means in English, but in
French it means, "Have some peas."
She sat on the steps one evening,
Enjoying the balmy air
He said, "May I sit beside you?"
And she gave him a vacant stair.
AINT IT THE TRUTH?
Getting out a paper is no picnic.
If  we  print  jokes,  folks  say   we  are
silly.
If we don't, we are too serious
If we publish original matter, they say
we lack variety.
If    we    publish    things    from    other
papers, we are too lazy to write.
If we stay on the job, we ought to be
rustling news.
If we are rustling news, we are not
attending to business in our own
department.
If   we   don't   print   contributions,   we
don't show proper appreciation.
If we print them the  paper is filled
with junk.
Getting Out a Paper Is No Picnic.
Like   as   not   somebody   will   say   we
swiped this from an exchange.
So we did.

for painting Mr. Jones' house.
"But Pat, I wanted two coats on that

"You've got it," said Pat, "I mixed
the first coat with the paint for the
second and put on both coats at the
same time."
REPORTERS' MEETING
A meeting of all would-be Ubyssey
reporters was held on Monday noon
in Room X, at which the details of
the reportorial contest were announced. Mr. T. W. Brown, editor-in-chief,
in charge of the meeting, explained
that a number of live reporters were
required in order to make the Ubyssey
a success this year.
Full instructions and rules of the
competition were stated by chief-reporter, Mr. Kenny Schell. Advice was
given as to the style of write-ups and
length of articles. Mr. Schell em-
phasizsd the fact that reporters would
be chosen strictly by the merit of
write-ups submitted. The assignments
were as follows:—Reporter's Meeting,
Rugby and Soccer Prospects, Story on
Jack Buchanan, Crowded Conditions
in the University.
Prospects Good For
Rugby and Soccer
The decision of the University
Rugby Club to enter two teams in the
Miller Cup Series is indeed praiseworthy. The McKechnie Cup team
will be selected from these two teams.
Of last year's McKechnie team Varsity can count on Domoney, Purdy,
Palmer, McLean, Cameron, Price,
Ramsell, Greggor, Brock, Warren.
Additional material for the Miller Cup
teams will be found in last year's
Second and Frosh teams. The rugby
authorities are also contemplating
two more rugby teams in the City
League. It is understood that both of
these will be intermediate teams, one
being the Arts '28 team, the other
composed of those who fail to make
the grade in the Miller Cup squad.
In passing, mention should be made
of the loss of Geh Ternan, last year's
McKechnie team captain. Regarded
by many as the best rugger player in
B. C, Ternan will be sadly missed.
However, Pug Greggor is attempting
his task in the proper way and is
utilizing all his capabilities to produce
a championship squad.
It is with feelings of elation that
soccer enthusiasts observe that one
out of Wilkinson, Huestis, Deans,
Jackson, Emery, Butler, Ledingham,
Phillips, Buckley, Crute, Baker and
King will have to act as spare when
the College boys stack up against the
crack Vancouver City eleven on Saturday. But this is more than counterbalanced by the realization that Heggie Mosher, the one and only goalie,
is in the hospital recovering from the
effects of a broken leg produced by
an Australian bushman. King of
Arts '27 will do his best to show the
wise ones that Heggie is not the only
long, tall man from North Vancouver
who can play.
As for the Second and Third soccer
teams there just aren't any; that's all.
But Messrs. Arnott, Liersch and Mel-
lish are busy signing up players and
will have two elevens on the field
next Saturday whatever happens.
The freshmen should turn out and attempt to make places on these two
teams for so far neither elevens have
announced their personnel.
In conclusion the support and patronage of the whole university is
solicited to back up the teams. The.
University boys need the sympathy
and support of both students and faculty if success is to be achieved. And
if the old Varsity spirit remain, which
responds most nobly to the heaviest
odds, there will not be much silverware missing when Presentation Day
comes round next spring.

EXPERIENCES OF
THE INNOCENT
Sept. 22.—Day broke but I could not
find the pieces. Ate when necessary.
I went up to the "citadel of learning"
to procure me a bunk. I found that
there were quite a number of wise
ones this year who had put on a padlock. There were all sizes of padlocks ranging from dog-collar locks to
old-fashioned prison padlocks. What
is needed now is a crowbar.
Sept. 23.—Would have gone to sleep
again if the alarm clock had let me.
I could not throw it out of the window
because the window was closed. I
arrived in good time to meet my fellow-sufferers. Suffering cats! It was
worse than Babel. More "1" than
"babe.' There were lots of towers,
too. One long tower on two legs demanded why the doorways were not
made higher.    I bite.    Why?

These are not code words but initials
for different shacks. I asked where
X, Y, Z was and somebody told me it
was in the Publication Office under
X, Y, Z '27.
In the excitement I forgot my lunch
and rushed to the "Cafe tea 'ere" but
I came to the tail end of the bread
line, so I was forced to borrow a sandwich.
Sept. 26.—There is a notice board at
the Arts Building entrance for use of
Players' Club only. The little glass,
I suppose, allows the leading ladies to
lay the rouge on thick. Let the curtain down, Valentino.
Sept. 27.—$10 reward offered to anyone seeing Cyclone Parson climbing
over the Chemistry Building on his pet
puff-puff.
At noon I stripped (no, not in the
open) and played (?) football. S'funny
how many people think my leg is the
ball. I wish they wouldn't interfere
so much when I have the ball.
Our trainer is an angel and I told
him so. What did he say? Well, you
would be surprised. And that's that
till next Sunday.
JUNIORS HOLD
CLASS MEETING
On Monday noon Arts '26 held its
first meeting as a junior class. It was
found that only one member of the
executive elected at the close of last
term had failed to return. This was
Bentley Edwards, the yell leader.
Frank Potter was chosen to fill his
place.
Other elections at the meeting were:
Pierce Selwood, assistant treasurer of
the Alma Mater Society; and Grace
Swencisky, women's marshal. Then
followed a discussion of the year's programme. The first-class function will
be a hike to Capilano, two weeks this
Saturday.
After a heated discussion Arts '26
decided to wear gowns this year. The
ireeting then broke up.
FOR   MERIT
It will be of interest to many students who have used the Fraser and
Squair French Grammar, to learn that
Professor Squair, who has taught
French for many years in the University of Toronto was this summer
d'-rorated by the French Government
with the "Croix de la Legion d'Hon-
neur."

TRYOUTS TO BE
HELD NEXT WEEK
New members of the Players' Club
will be chosen early next week when
the timorous dramatists commence by
blurting out "I don't believe you yet."
That will be the beginning of what
promises to be a successful year for
the club. By the time the Christmas
Plays are presented these same actors
will be accomplished in their art and
will come into the spot and footlights
direct from the care of Professor F.
G. C. Wood and other dramatic leaders of the college.
There were several people at the
meeting yesterday and those who survived the ordeal of having the horrors
of the stage thrown at them are still
prepared to study their parts for the
try-outs. Partners have been picked
for the sedate seniors and the more
or less blushing freshettes and these
will make their own arrangements for
studying their parts together. As
usual the new members are not asked
to try their stuff with a love scene.
It is said that there is a better effect
if the pairs of would-be . actors fight
the first time they meet on the stage.
Latest Registration
Figures Available
Several first year students who have
been attending the University have
been asked to withdraw owing to deficient matriculation standing, it has
been announced by Registrar Stanley
W. Mathews, who stated that those
students in the upper years who are
carrying supplemental should make
arrangements to write these off as
soon as possible.
The registration figures now show a
total of 1,408, and it is expected that
there will be almost 50 graduates
added to this number before the last
day of registration, which is October
15th. Last year the total registration,
including  all  graduates,  was  1,308.
In spite of the fact that large numbers of freshmen have been forced
out there is a large increase in this
year's class. Last session there were
499 in Arts '27. There are 556 in Arts
'28.
