.,   With the beginning o! the 1928-1929 session of the university
ddmsi the first Cuue of the 11th volume of the Ubyssey, which
eommenoee it* fourth year *• a twiee-weekly paper this session.
Primarily a newspaper, the Ubyssey has as its main objects:
1. "To record and to advertise those aotivities of the student
body whieh shall, in the opinion of the Publications board, be con-
•lasted of legitimate and sufficient news value."
l     8. "To otter const-motive criticism of acts and conditions affecting the s
._, student body."
$, "To provide student* with a medium for acceptable literary
and critical expression,"
4, To be to some extent self-supporting, as a result of work of
the business icd advertising staff.
t. "We welcome you, readers new and old, to this volume of the
yssey, and trust we shall have your co-operation in carrying on
i work of university publioationj.
As a newspaper, the Ubyssey Is open to receive news items and
ibutions of a literary or humorous nature from its readers.
ley correspondence columns are also open to any readers who
to make use ot them. In these columns readers may criticise
'ork ot any organisation on the campus All contributions inust
ied by the writer, and the editor retains the right to decide
■ or not theae contributions shall be published, Students can
the Ubyssey as a business enterprise by giving preference to
isers who patronise university publications.
On our side as members of the Publications board we accept our
responsibility, and are prepared to do the work that is required to
the best of our ability. We wish to make clear, however, that so
long as the university expeots us to publish a fair and impartial
newspaper, we intend to exero.se the privileges that go with news-
paperpublishing, namely "the freedom of the press."
we take this opportunity of paying tribute to our predecessors
Who have built up and developed the university publications board.
To ottr better-known immediate predecessor* we wish to extend our
thanks for their untiring effort* to leave attain of the organization
IS the beet possible working order; and we hope we shall be able
to give our readers at least to some extent, the satisfaction they
received from the Publications Board last year.
It is somewhat, difficult, in spite of numerous attempts in the
past, for thi Ubyssey to lift its editorial voice in a new and original
welcome, either to the students who aro returning to the university
with renewed faith in their ability, or to their more fortunate fellows
who are appearing for the flrst time and who therefore still retain
their faith intact. Por the former, we <,nn only wish, and in some
cases prophesy, success in the fields they have already chosen. They
have already made more or less enthusiastic contributions to university life, and we are confident that their future activities will in no
way detract from the record which thoy have established for themselves.
For the freshmen, however, we have a word of paternal advice,
unearthed from the depths of our experience. There is a certain
nebulous virtue floating about tho campus whioh in known as university spirit, and to which we would advise every freshman to expose
himself as thoroughly as possible. It oannot be wholly captured in
a week, or even in a year, but once the tlrst seed haa been sown, the
growth is guaranteed to be rapid. It is difficult to define an idea
which exists in the mind of every student, but which changes its
oharacter under the pressure of eaoh individual opinion. The spirit
of this university is necessarily the spirit of a young institution,
whose traditions are still in the process of being formed. The
lack of precedent undoubtedly has its disadvantages, but on the other
hand it leaves us free to cut our path in the direction which we
believe is the best for us to follow.
We admit that it is difficult for the freshman to grasp immediately the significance of the university's past achievements and the
possibility of even more noted achievements in the future. We ask
nothing moro from the members of'32, therefore, than that they
avail themselves to the best of their ability of the facilities which
the university offers for a sound basis of education. Not only in their
aoademio work, but alao in the numerous activities of student life,
we belive that they will find opportunities to display the best that is
in them, and in so doing to contribute vitally to the welfare of the
university as a whole.

tho olass of Art* '81 on th* opportunities that lay before them.
Tho next speaker, Mis* Bollert,
Dean ot Woman, stated that *h* always welcomed this ohanc* to sp*ak
to th* student*, because, although,
sh* had many opportunities to apeak
to the women alone, there wore fow
occasions when sh* oould iddross thi
men and women together. "Tho men
need words ot advice more than thi
women," she added,
She feared that the only ones who
felt a sense of wonder at tho begin*
ning ot the term were membera of
the faoulty. Modern atudenta do not
seem to sense fresh adventure at ihe
beginning of each year. In fact, thoy
no longer wonder at anything. "But,"
Miss Bollert continued, "there ia one
experience that ahould not be taken
as commonplaoe and that lo tho re*
turn to college."
She next read a Hat of ten reasons
why students go to college, which
ranged from a love of learning to a
search for "opportunities in tbe marriage market." All students attending
university ahould know *x*otly what
they cam* to ooll*ge for, Sh* pointed
out that v*ry often a lack of interest
In the work at college is du* to th*
look of a clearly defined obj*otlv*. Ail
student* should endeavor to find their
objective and then "go to It."
Warning Issued
The final speaker was Dr. Hill,
Medical Health Officer of the University. His address was mainly an ox*
planatlon ot tho physical health
service of the Unlveralty of Britiah
Columbia. First, all student* muat
submit to a medical examination, By
this means those who aro phyaloally
handicapped can be slngl*d out tor
special attention. Tiieoo stttd«nts
come under the care ot tho Public
Health Nurse who is alto responsible
for first aid treatment In any accidents on the campus. The duty of the
Medical Health Officer i* to prevent
tho spread of infectious diseasss, hav*
log saved about $9000 worth ot stu*
dents' time last year by precaution*.
Dr. Hill concluded by warning tho
students to be vaccinated a* soon ii
possible as there Is the chance of
small-pox breaking out this winter.
The meeting closed with the National Anthem.
A prise ot fifty dollars donated by
the Players' Club, Is offered for an
original play suitable for the Club's
Christmas performance. Tbe award
will be made on the recommendation
of the Faculty Members of tbe Advisory Board of tbe Players' Club. All

Of Interest to Freshmen—The
Milk Probe lo now drawing to a
The Coming
of theFrosh
Dignified aoholars, familiar to all
through th* somewhat derogatory appellation of "Aggie," while ploughing
and laying linoleum over their carefully tended fields so as to provide
hoy and fodder for oommon room decorations, found an anolent manuscript.
Therein they discovered, when the
translation from the Lithuanian language was completed, several curious
facts ooucernlng the origin and the
reason for the annual swarm ot freshmen. Tbe following article is an excerpt which waa translated with esse
by a professor who has had many
years of deciphering hieroglyphics
and exam, papers.
5. And thus for many years the
Ubysslnlans waxed fat on peace and
plenty, yea, verily and it was so. And
there was no drought since the lotus
bloomed In the Sacred lake outside the
Hall of Silence. And there was also
no drought In the House* of Fraternity and groat wa* the Joy thereof.
6. And the children of Ublcl uttered
up wild skyrockets of joy and day
after day the smoke of burnt offerings ascended from the Cafeteria. And
many were the votive offerings to the
treat Gods ot the People, "Llbrorius"
tbe Bearded," "Cafeterius the Mysterious," and "Dootus the Violent" Lavish were the gifts ot tho suppliant, yea,
a* lavish as the promise of class presidents before eleotion*.
7. But lt come to pass In the spring
of the year, even before the first Counoil planned a gymnasium within twelve
moons, yea, even before the flrat stale
jest was acclaimed by th* Soiibes ot
Muok, the Ubysslnlans coat aside the
anolent gods of countless generations
and took unto themselves brand new
ninety-five cent idols, F.O.B. Detroit.
8. And far and wide were the new
gods upheld, from the fragrant fields
of the Aggls, past the dens of toll of
Sclentites, the vale of sorrow of the
Artltes even unto the lofty heights of
the Sages of Chess.
9. And lt came to pass that the
brows of the ancient gods grew dark
and they waxed exceedingly wroth:
And they spake among themselves ln
conference and swore by themselves
to do unto others the dirt that had
been done to them.
10. And so It happened that unto
them came one day a still small voice
crying from out the wilderness of
Ublcl, "There shall be a plague upon
ye, yea, a plague far worse than Red
11. And thus was created the plague
of ort told prophecy, the plague, or
mighty devastation, that smote the affrighted people ot Ubiel. And thua
desceuded the Plague of Freshmen.
And great was the walling of the multitude night and day.
12. Yea, in the twilight of the years
myriads upon myriad* of Things named the "Man who ar* Fresh" descended e'en over the fragrant fields ot the
18. For forty day* and forty nights
thoy came bloating forever tbe peaceful land of the Ubysslnlans. Yea, with
their mouths agape they attended the
gatherings of tho people the Loud of
Learning. In tholr madness they or*
gued with th* Professors mighty In the
land, raised their voices aloud in the
very Hall of Bltano*. aad even desecrated tbe games of Chess. Thus were
the People of Ublcl troubled full sore
and did supplioate and did beg of the
gods a means of to rid themselves of
their affiictlou. And they uttered
many "Woes" Intermingled with
14. And after the people had done
full penance the gods took pity on
them. Yea, for their manifold transgressions tbe gods allowed their suppliants a slight redemption from their
15. And the gods in their compassion gave them the terrifying Initiation, the Indescribable manna of the
Caf., th« far famed B. A. C, and likewise the Qreat Transformation where*
by at the end of twelve moons the
chosen of the Fresh Men could be
transformed, with but a slight swelling of the head and a new sise in
hats, Into lowly Sophs,
16. Verily, they did struggle greatly, and slowly were the Fresh Men
subdued. And, Io when many a nose
and ear had been mutilated by the
greatest of Professors, the victory waa

Campus Novelties
Since last fall the campus has
changed until It looks almost respectable. The grounds In front of the
Arts building, formerly the stamping
ground of Aggie ploughs, have become
lawns of exquisite Freshman green.
Ornamenting the outside of the
Science building lies a gigantic piece
of firewood which will ln time become a flag-pole painted, we suggest,
in alternate stripes of gold and blue.
The color scheme will come in handy
when we are affiliated with some
Barber College. The shelter for the
log also attracts notice and the meek
newcomers In Innocent tones Inquire,
"Is that the annex to the Science
A stroll within the walls of the
Auditorium will soon oonvince anyone that the Caf. is again open and
also that painters have tenderly laid
down a new ooat of paint In the hall.
In the same building the Pub. offloe
gleams waxed and clean causing the
natives and Pub. parasites to say, "Is
this the Pub. of yesteryear?"
The men's upper Common room
has degenerated into a reading room.
It now contains a rack for magazines
and if the Chess Club lowers further
the morale of the students lt shall go
so low as to Include a book-stand. The
lower room, the scene of many a
hectic battle, until the other day was
spotless and unsullied but to-day five
and a half cigarette butts mar the
floor—the upper classmen have returned.
Last but greatest ln novelty to the
returning student is the new Bus
Shelter. Painted a delicate shado ot
white, lt stands on the campus almost as Imposing as a gas-station.
Placed here and there in this haven
of reqt is a bench for the overworked
(?) and studious (?) seeker of knowledge. On a rainy, windy day the
rain will sweep right in and out in
playful gusts, increasing the enjoyment of the odd loiterer within.
Where the Frosh of other years
looked with admiration only at nan-
driers (electric) those of to-day have
a whole panorama of Innovations to
look at.

,, Is** Ang*l*i, 8*pt 28.— More than
v/>,>-|8Q0 new students were welcomed on
:>*L Ih* campus of the University ot California at Los Angeles yesterday In a
Spirit of hospitality radically differing
U' from the former baaing programs that
.U'onOi prevailed on college campuses.
w"    Initead Of being submitted to a series of hfttnlllatlng ceremonies  aud
physical buffeting, freshmen were cordially greeted by upper classmen, or-
. iied for the purpose, and offered
very assistance In establishing them-
r<    Mlvoe in their new envlroment.   Pre-
[$}■, paratory to the Opening day, meetings
■were conducted by the various student groups designed to orient the
newcomer and to make their regis-
oration and induction into the classes
Si agreeable as possible.
ft? J   '  "Senior Sisters" were stationed a-
fr     bout the grounds for the purpose of
extending whatever aid they could to
m    ' women students who were strange to
the   university.     Special   functions,
such  as  teas,  luncheons,  assemblies
and rallies were the order of the o-
pening week, to familiarize the newcomers with the personnel of the university as well as with Its traditions.
The total enrollment at tbe unlver-
Blty this year will be more than 5500,
according to figures from tho recorder's office.
8tudents  Earn  Their Way
Los Angeles, Sept. 27.— Few students at the University of California
at Los Angeles who are obliged to
finance their own education lack the
opportunity to earn substantial wages
by part-time employment during the
current school year, by means of the
student employment bureau maintained by the alumni association, accord-
to Ned Marr, who is this year in
charge of the bureau. Laat year more
than 2700 men and women students
were afforded the opportunity of finding employment that they were enabled to take advantage ot while pursuing their university work, and indications are that a greater number
will be similarly assisted this year.
Many students have their time free
from 1 p.m. each day and one or two
days of the week entirely unoccupied
by classes. This enablea them to
take positions oa gardeners, chaffeurs,
waiter*, Janitors, at telephone switchboards and similar types of employment.
Many of the students are qualified
for more skilled and technical work,
such m drafting, musicians, tutoring
and engineering.
Girla are offered suoh work as tutoring, housework, nursing and as companion* or readers tor elderly folk.
Careful supervision of the bureau protect* the student* from being engaged
at employment which would Inter-
fen with their olass work.
William J. Masterson, who graduated with the Class of '98, has been
selected by the National Federation
of Canadian University Students as
one of tho three members of tho
Western Canada Debating team.
Masterson along with representatives
from the Universities ot Alberta and
Saskatchewan will tour Ontario,
Quebec and the Maritime*. The tour
Is scheduled to start January, 1919.
Masterson, as well as being one ot
the University's leading debaters,

Owing to the furnishing of the Faculty Room for the use of the members of the Toaching Staff, the usual
Friday exhibit of books cannot this
year be held in that place. The Librarian hopes to arrange accomodation
for such exhibitions in the course of
the next few days. Due notice ot

The Student Christian Movement
Is an organisation of great influence
in the University. Its activities consist of:
Weekly study groups on the Life
and Teachings of Jesus, Study
groups on problems of current interest; Occasional week-end dlsousslon
camps; A spring camp for one week
at the end of the term.
The S. C. M. also arranges for regular weekly addresses by prominent
speakers. These meetings are open
not only to members but also to the
whole student body.
These activities will be in full
swing at an early dite; watch the
Ubyssey for further announcements.
Sport Editor Reviews
the Athletic Outlook
With the opening ot the Winter
Session, athletes again grit their
teeth to the cool air of both early
and late practices, while the coaches
say, "no more gedunks," to their
would-be "Red Grangers." The student
on the campus asks, "what are Varsity's chances in the field ot sport thla
year?" and from tht bisecting, dlseot*
ing critics of the Ubyssey office,
oomes the reply that prospects are
Thla year again there will be four
major sports on the campus, but soccer, which held the major status list
year, will now appear as a minor.
Canadian rugby proved to be sufficiently popular last year to warrant
ita promotion to a big blook activity.
The success of the traok olub Is
perhaps of primary interest to the
student body as a whole thla season.
The old faat steppers will be back
and In addition to these, Percy Williams, Olympic Champion of the 100
metre and 900 metre dashes, is expected to put the blue and gold very-
much in the limelight.
In English Rugby, twelve old colors
are baok and many good men ot last
year's Secondary team* are on the
waiting list for the coveted vacant
places. This is the team which met
the world-famous Waratahs a year a*
go and which might in the near future
tour New Zealand Itself.
Mnoh 1* to be expected this sea*
ion trom Canadian rugby, a sport
whioh has steadily grown in popularity since Its enrolment on the athletlo program at U. B. C. Last year
Varaity entered the finals with the
Regina Rough Riders for the Western Canada Championship. This year
three teams are to be entered, a Junior and intermediate team ln the looal
league* and tbe Big Four entry ln
the Inter-olty and Dominion Series.
Only five of last year's men have left
and much new material has made its
appearance at the early morning turnout.
Basketball has suffered slightly
trom the 1988 graduations. The girl's
team Is practically Intact so far as
can be learned and a showing equally
good as last year's Is expected.
Among the boys, two only ot the Senior A team have left us and these
vacancies will be well contested for
by prominent hoop mon of the minor
Swimming and Soccer will suffer
materially from the loss of several
stars this Season but it Is hoped that
a few shining lights from tbe freshman class will come forward to keep
up the standard of these sports in the
Tennis,   Rowing   and   Badminton
have most of their old bauds back
and the competition is expected to
be as keen as tn previous years,
The main point for the students to
remember 1b that these athletes who
are soon to carry Varsity's colors Into competition, while they play these
games for the sake of sport, deserve
all support from the student body as
reward for their untiring self-denial
which is essential to bringing home
the silver. A chour from the aide-
lines at the crucial moment Is often
a belp to victory. Lot. the student
body turn out as a unit unil give support to these people who are providing and developing tho "other side ot
college life."

Following the usual custom of those
making their opening bow, we shall
moke a statement of our policy In
writing these columns. We shall
write on thoae aubjects which attraot
our attention, and deal with them as
we see fit; subjeot, of course to those
who have the veto. Wo cannot promise to appear regularly aa there may
not always be matters worthy of our
notloe, or the inclination to write, or
space to be fitted Into.
We are placed on the Feature Page
as those who write for this page are
safeguarded, where necessary, by anonymity! but to be distinguished from
the other,*, our musings will be printed over the pseudonymn "Campus-
comber," which, a* some may guess,
Is a contraction or corruption of the
words "campus" and "beachcomber,"
I hope it is original.

Following another usual oustora, we
take thla opporunlty to welcome the
new member* of tho Student Body,
and to wish them all success in taking advantage of what is here for
their use. We hope they will fall
Into step with the traditions, if they
can be found, of this Instlution, and
that they will leave benefitted thereby.

Speaking of welcomes, we notloe
that ln the Handbook Ross Tolmie
says: "Your Alma Mater will treat
you as men and women; it expects
you to ect as men and women, and
on turning to pag*. 88. under the heading By-law No. 26, we see the sweat*
ers for "boys" and "girls" who "are
expected to act as men and women."
Further, these "boys" and '"girls"
oome under tbe general category of
"any student." This does not, some-
bow, seem to be treating the Freshmen right, and to the upper classmen lt Is almost slander.

The Editors of the Handbook have
made a good precedeut In having coloured advertising. In future years
they may go further and even inolude
reproductions in three colours of the
pictures In the Library.
One cannot help but draw a comparison between the present condition of our Campus and the state it
was in when those who are now Seniors were but Freshmen. All was
dry, parched soil, and the only foliage was a few weeds where now there
are green lawns, shrubs, flower beds,
and lily ponds. There seems to be
a plot afoot to beautify the grounds
in spite of the buildings. This suggestion Is given a flrmpr basis by the
appearance of creepers on the buildings, which will In time cover them,
we hope. This plot has been curried
within the halls as well. Witness the
mural decorations In the foyer of the
Auditorium, and the pictures In the
Library. Who knows but that soon
the walls will be covered with the
painted likenesses on the walls of
Librarians, Student Presidents, and
others? We hope the artist will accord each with halo and wings in
proportion to their worth.

The imposing terminal building for
the busses, with its posted time-table,
and upholstered seats will delight the
heart of all who have waited in the
rain after Christmas Plays while
those ahead of them clamber aboard.
We suggest that some public spirited
person supply lounges, and periodicals
such as "La Vie Parlslenne," "Vanity
Fair," and "Punch" to divert those
who are waiting.

Where Students Meet
Future Ordeal
Worries Frosh
Doubt and wonder Is at present
filling the minds of the Frosh class
as slowly it has dawned upon them
that they will have to go through
that nerve-racking ceremony Initiation. The very word itself ia dreadfully Indefinite and hints of terrifying
From what the students of the upper years plan, It appears that a
Freshman's life will be as harassed
as the career ot; "Orphan Annie." No
definite word has been given out as
yet, but the rumors indicate a novel
style of Initiating.
When a Freshman with pleading
eyes and meek tone asks a supercilious Soph the forms of previous initiations he receives weird accounts of
Gus Madely's "Oxford bags" and
The Sophmores gloatingly suggest
the Lily Pond as a means of cooling
off hot-headed freshmen, while the
Muck writers sanely suggest that they
be placed ln the revolving library
door and then that they turn lt at
a fast rate until chastised by the
guardian, a new bunch oan then be
substituted and so on ad inlfltum until the class is exhausted both ways.
But these are morely light thoughts
compared to what the Student's Council will give out to the cringing mob.
When amased passers-by see the
wilting result after tbe ordeal and
ask "What Is the reason for all the
children being carried home."
The reply will come "Once they
were strong but that's their weakness now."

Canadian Rugby prospects thi* year
are exceptionally fine. With the
calibre ot football players turning out,
the spirit being shown and the best
coaches on the coast, we should upset

these strong aggregation*. However,
with only six of laat year's squad
missing and excellent prospects to fill
up the gap, Doo. and Norm, have a
wonderful nucleus to convert Into a

of the "stonewall," and Captain Vic
Odium and Jackson will again bend

except for Cam Duncan, who, If the
backfleld is too full, will make one ot
the best ends we bave ever produoed.
Shields Is with us and docs not noed
an introduction; Blalre Dickson is a
whirlwind and Fred Orauer Is baok
to his old game, Forgner, from Columbia College, looks like a huaky fullback, and Wentworth ha* returned
from Boston. Coleman looks like a
Big Four man this year and he is expected to show up well in line plunging. The quarter-back position vacated by Currle and Helmer, will be
efficiently filled by Berto and Glttus.
Berto, after handling the Intermediates last year, will have sufficient experience to handle the Senior team,
and Qittus is a peach of a little quarter who handled the roally fine Klokis
team last season. The ranks of last
year's Intermediate team are not so
badly depleted and those who are left
should know some football by this
time. New men are shaping up very
well and lt a'few more hard workers come out we should be able to
field a Junior team which will have a
chance at the Junior Championship.
There are seven teams in the Junior
league of which the Vancouver
Juniors — former Klokis — and the
Dodekas offer very strong competition.
The winner of this league will be going to the prairie to play for the
Western Canada Junior Championship
if the present plans materialise.
Morning practices are in full swing
again. A bus leaves Tenth and Sasamat at seven o'clock every morning,
which enables the men to be on the
field at 7:20. After the flrst gomes
on October 6, practices will be on
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
only. Chalk-talks are being arranged
for Monday and Friday evenings
from six to seven-thirty,
Morning practices, good coaches, a

Return to Floor
With the opening of the University
term, Women's basketball will soon

Claire Menten, Rene Harris, Rettie
Tingley, Martha Agar, MarJ. Lannlng,
Jean Whyte and Thelma Mahon have
returned, and the only gaps on the
team are caused by the abaonce of
Torchy Bailey and Nettie Pronulk.

the first month when
tbe work will be
taken over by the
two brothers, Art
and Harry Lord, both
well known for their ability In whipping teams into winning material.

Strong Material Por MoKeohnle Cup
Tula year as never before in tbe
history of the Institution, Varsity is
possessed of a wealth of rugby material. In the senior division there
are over twenty men of MoKeohnle
calibre. Already a great deal of enthusiasm has been shown by all who
have turned out, and competition tor
the various p o s 1-
ttons will be keen.
With the coaching
o f Jack Tyrwhltt,
Bert Tupper and
Murray Hunter,
there is no reason
why Varsity should
not capture all the
silverware. In ail
probability, besides
the flrst team, two
senior and two intermediate teams
will hn entered. One of the latter
will be composed entirely ot Freshmen.

tricky, fast, swerving, and his ability

Keuny Noble, affectionately known
as "Tiny," will be a tower ot strength
for the team, and the despair of the

things. His tremendous driving power
