Last year, although Varsity had per*

net make a *ucc*ssful showing in the
league. Thi* wa* due to two things:
Im, refusal of several player* to get
into condition; aecond, lack ot practise field, Thla year, to eliminate the
former difficulty, Stan Oale and John

effort to secure the league leadership.
Although a definite line-up cannot be

Arts Team to Meet King Edward Old Boys in Curtain
Reiser to Rugby Season
The opening senior rugby game on
Saturday against K.E. Old Boys at
Brockton Point will see several new
faces above the blue and gold 1*r-
seys. The tew practices possible force
tbe club to play practically a flrst
string team under the Art* name for
the flrst game.
Rugby is having a great revival this
year. A big meeting of the club was
held on Wednesday at which Dr.
Sedgewick gave one of his Justly
famous talks. Domoney, former Varsity star, spoke and tho season's plans
were laid. Practices have been large.
Freshmen being most numerous. The
Frosh team to be fielded next Saturday should be very strong. The coaches are working hard and are fast
whipping the team into shape.
Big Noble, for two years star of the
Canadian rugby team, has returned
to the fold and with Witch Grauer,
Hyack ace, will do the hooking, with
Des Kidd as lock. Harold Mahon will
strut hi* stuff In the second line with
the greyheaded Sparks, the moat aggressive player In town. Last line contains Morris, former American football star, and Jim Sinclair.
Two new halves will make their formal debut. Mclntyre and Barret are
both small but are fast and tricky.
Gusty Oustafson Is five-eights, with
Willis again urging the ball along as
inside three. A second Barret is filling the gap left by Casey. On tbe

The Women's Literary Society,
which has been of so much interest
to women students in past years, Is
again ready to begin work with n
programme both Interesting and instructive. Something entirely new
has been planned by the executive
for the coming session, and it Is
hoped  thHt it will  prove a success.
In Literary Societies of a similar
nature which exist In eastorn colleges, some specified foreign country
Is otfen made the subject for study
during an entire term. Upon this
plan the Women's Lit. of the U.B.C.
has made its arrangements for the
coming year.
Germany, the country chosen by
the executive for study, will be dealt
with as fully as possible In the small
number of meetings allowed by the
shortness of the term. Accordingly,
debates and speeches given throughout the session will treat, as far as
possible, subjects peculiar to Ger
many and German student life,
For the opening meeting, a one-act
German comedy has been selected,
which will probably be given, in
translation, by the Women's Literary
Society, assisted by members of the
corresponding Men's Lit This play
should appeal to everybody, so watch
for announcements of further particulars of Its production, which will be
made as soon as they are definitely
decided  upon by  the two executives.

The flrst trip of the Outdoor Club
waa held on 8unday, September Mth.
Although Varsity had not started, ft
good many of the old members had returned to town and managed to
clamber up. The girls occupied the
Club cabin and the men availed themselves ot the hospitality ot the eon*
struction camp. The trip got under

10.80 a.m., after a large and varied
breakfast had sated the appetites of
the members. The new trail was followed as tar aa Ooat Ridge and evoked favourable comment from the

till Monday, barking the logs on the
cabin as they (the logs not the mem

the foremost clubs of the University,
Is open for more members. The Society affords ample opportunity to all
students interested In music—choral

Warren, Rhodes'Scholar
Granted B. A. Degree
Recently, at a special congregation
of the University of British Columbia
Harry Warren, 1926 Rhodes Scholar
to Oxford, was presented with his
B.A. degree. Because a BA. degree
is necessary for entrance to Oxford,
Warren discontinued his work in
Geology In order to complete his B.A.

reading some very teamed authorities,
however, w* And that a erest is any

Rresents the ornament worn on the

elty or a college. It is a vulgar error •
to speak of the arms or shields of
such bodies as crests.
The shields or arms may be traeed
back to primitive man. It originated
in a symbolism to distinguish his ewa

and tribe. It 1* fundamentally human
that man should assort himself
through hi* property Stamp, And
then when the barons and their great
families began to bid for supremacy
it was a distraction from rival families or lesser ones.
These coats ot arms, emblasoned on
the knight's armor, soon began to have
a genealogical significance. Th*y
were records of pedigree, and Questions of precedence began to revolve
about them.
From the military standpoint, however, heraldry played more of a pie-
torlal than active part in England.
On the evidence, there was no heraldry on the English side at the
Battle of Hastings. It is flrst noted
about 1189, during the reign ot Richard I. But on tne accession of tie
Tutors armory waa already falling Into a decadence. Heraldry ceased to
play a real part In military affairs,
and waa kept alive principally by
ceremony and pageant
The genealogical Intricacies Involved in these family shields, however,
afforded a Ma Held fee oontrov*f*y
and curiosity. Many lengthy and
pedantic treatises appeared, going
even to the extreme of crasy mysticism. There was and Is a fascination
about these old records. They bad an
attraction for the scholar and investigator.
The seats of learning often became
Interested In some of these mysterious symbols, and in time we find
that the universities, lu line with the
human tradition ot a craving for "distinctive" marks, adopted shields, and
mottoes. And our young University,
too, has fallen In line with the now
well-established tradition.
On the heavy glass window of the
library immediately above and Immediately opposite the loan desk, are
emblazoned the shields of many universities, along with that of our own.
The U. B. C, "arms" occupy the central position on the first mentioned
wall, and It Is flanked on the left of

Dalhousle, King* College, Halifax,
Montreal and Ottawa; while on tbe
right of U. B. C. and Oxford are
Bishop's College, Saskatchewan, London University, Trinity College, Toronto, and Arcadia.
In our next of this informative
series of articles the shield* on the
west side will be enumerated, and
the subject of University arms will be
more fully developed.

With this- our second issue, and our voyage past departure, we
disclose the fsct that we have cleared for "the high seas," which is
merely another way of saying that we will announce no policy or,
as the seaman has it, we will lay no course. Among our readers,
doubtless, will he those who object to sailing without knowledge of
destitution, and are possessed of merchant minds which fare forth
only on profitable trade routes, bearing and seeking a certain cargo.
To put ft briefly, we will state no policy because, just so far as it
would guide our progress, it would narrow our range. It is, in our
opinion, better to set out with an empty hold and follow the practice
of privateers; raid where we may and trust fortune to feed us. The
empty hold may still be filled, while the laden hold must either refuse treasures of chance, or jettison its original load; so the paper
without definite policy may express itself on all questions and adjust
its position to the particular demands of every circumstance, just
SS sails are trimmed to garner every breath of onward-pushing air.
Our deoks are cleared, or rather our columns ore open, to receive
whatever shot and shell contending parties may wish to throw aboard
Or about us; correspondence, on matters of general interest, is both
invited and encouraged. Contributions to regular columns, in the
form pf articles and literary composition will bo welcomed, for they
are both expected and desired; and they will be used according to
their merits. ' First and foremost, we have in the Ubyssey a student
Saper with ownership and responsibility vested equally in all mem-
era of the Alma Mater Sooiety.    \
We confidently expect that when our anchor is dropped in a
roadstead yet unknown and far beyond the sea rim of our present
vision, we shall find our hold fairly laden with a rich plunder gathered in Ohance encounter with craft that wait to cross our bows. We
fly no colours but our own; but we run these to the truck before all
skirmishes, in none of which will they be struck.
Freshmen at University will find that wide as was the gap between public school and high school, wider still it is between high
school and University. "Tunm est" implies that spirit, of independence, that standing upon your own feet.
The value of a University training in general lies not in the
"rote" memorization of hard facts, but rather in a more comprehensive association of ideas. A background must be developed, The
pursuit of sheer scholarship mny be the bnsis, but it must bo rounded
out by a more human background, giving a more comprehensive outlook on life.
Many an ambitious freshman spends his whole time busily "interpreting tbe letter"—and as it ha.-, oft been said, the letter killeth.
Many a time lie attends lectures, then goes to study in (lie library--
and then straight home to swat, again. He is missing the University
life that the dormitory system gives. After graduation this same
freshman, clever, ambitious, will perhaps smack a hit too strongly of
"The bookful blockhead, ignorantly read,
With loads of learned lumber in his bead."
True, books are humnn. Drama is an interpretation of life.
History, Economics, Psychology—all human. But only if we come
into contact with real humanity are we able to approach them in the
right attitude.
An old country college man, talking to us the other day, said
that at Oxford you may take a great deal or nothing. He was differentiating between the "sheer" scholar nnd the well-to-do gentleman of England's titled class. And yet in the common-room talk,
in debates and wide reading of newspapers, nnd in tbe clubs, these
"nothing" lords do attain poise and bearing, and a more human
outlook on life perhaps than a scholar who devotes his whole time
to classics or philological studies, and who sacrifices to a very great
extent the necessary contact with his fellows.
The "take-nothing" cannot put his finger down perhaps, and
say, my college education has benefitted me here and here, because
I know that fact and that. Rather it is a vague indefinable background they have, a human background.
As always, however, tho case before us is one of compromise—
in true line with the Aristotelian definition of virtuo as tho mean
and the extreme. It is the mean, shall we say, of the "take-nothing"
lord and "the scholar of the letter." It is the extreme, inasmuch as
the object of life, to many of us, is to drink life to the lees, to live a
life as well-rounded and balanced as possible, Only by experience
with life are we able to appreciate intellectual fruits to the full.
It may seem to some that wo are stressing the wrong side of the
question. Perhaps it is thought that the "human interest" aspect is
already over done. Being, however, in contact with a good many
scholarship people, and people who are, on the evidence of University
records "clever," the Ubyssey is sometimes dismayed by their narrow outlook on life due to their too concentrated efforts along a
single line. They have come into contact with books—human hooks,
too—but lack just that touch of life which would make thorn good
companions, well-rounded people and human leaders.
Our advice to freshman, then, is to strive for a "roundness" of
life. To get the best out of their education they must read around
and behind their subject, getting a broader association of ideas.
They must study—and study hard: that is the basis. But they must
have more than this bare granite foundation. It is, of course, platitudinous to say that first things must come flrst—whether it is educational, social or athletic. The main thing, then, both at University and in the after life of broader scope in the world of affairs, is
to retain in all things a severe architectural proportion.
Good Outlook for
Debates This Year
The outlook for Intercollegiate debates this year is exceedingly rosy If
plans now In formation are earrled
out. The University will again meet
the University of California In debate.
Last year a team was sent to Los
Angeles and they are to cond a return team to Vancouver this year.
Correspondence is now being car-
i'loil on between I'. B. C. and tho
Uni versifies of Idaho and Montana for
>he formation of a triangle contest.
!f this Is carried through Idaho will
'ebate hero and will aUo meet a team
from Montana at home, The U. B. C.
will send a team to Montana for her
away debate.
The Unlveralty has now been made
a permanent member ot the Western
''Diversities Debating League In which
are sIbo Included the Universities of
Saskatchewan, Alberta and Manitoba,
Inch university has a dual debate and
Manitoba will be our opponent here
while our away team goes to Saskatoon. Last year's winner was Alberta,
hut U. B. C. Intends to give them a
good run for the cup this year.
There will probably be women's debates with the University of Puget
<*ound, Washington and Victoria College.
There will probably be no "Imperial Debate" this year. Definite Information will be at hand shortly,
Sun-Dial Given To
U.B.Cby Ex-Prof.
Students of former years as well as
freshman will do well to make a visit
to the Botanic Gardens this year as
they will find a great change In general conditions ot the gardens and
the paths. All the walks have been
repaired and are In splendid condition
with their gravel surfaces. Of chief
Interest, however, is the new sun-dial
which wan presented by Commander
B, 8, Hartley, R.N., formerly assistant professor of mathematics at
U. B. C.
Mr. Hartley la now on the staff at
University College, Victoria, taking
the place ot Professor Russell who
died this summer. This dial has been
»et on a magnificent granite pedestal
nt the entrance to the Gardens and
furnishes the standard Pacific time.
As it is the only reliable time-piece
around the University, students will
do well to take advantage of such a
facility. The dial is unique in that
nil the mathematical calculations, as
well as all the etchings ot the Lions
and the University crest were done by
Commander Hartley himself The calculations wore made for this locality
alone and would have to he adjusted
hefore results* could he obtained elsewhere.
The dial registers time very accurately as by uRlng the corrections on
the sides of the plate It is possible to
reckon the time to the minute. Afte*-
the rending Is taken of the time registered by the shadow on the dial;
these corrections are either added or
subtracted as indicated on the plate.
The corrections represent the number
of minutes which one must add or subtract from the reading according to
the day of the month that the reading
is taken. The corrections change on
the 1st, 10th and 20th days of the
month and the Intervening days can
he calculated therefrom. As this dial
represents something unique aud or-
iglnnl, students are requested to be
cartful in their treatment of it as well
as the other things around the gardens. It was only by special request
that these privileges were obtained,
and it would he very unjust of the
student body to violate them.
Arts '28 Class Notes
Members of Arts '28 will regret to
learn that Mlas I.illoot Green, Clans
vice-president, will not return to the
I'Diversity and accordingly has re-
siKiied her office
An emergency meeting of the Kxecu-

Nominations for the vacant position
will noon be In order, and it Is'sure
that prominent members of the class
will be asked to stand for election.
The matter will be placed before the
class at the earliest possible occasion.
The first official meeting of the
Executive will be held on Monday
noon In Arts 104, when definite arrangements will be made.
It 1* with regret that we note the
absence of a number of protestors
from the staff of the University this
session. Doan Brock Is leaving Immediately to attend the Pan-Pacific
Science Congress at Tokyo. When the
conference is concluded, he will go on
to Hong Kong to carry on geological
work begun by himself five years ago,
and subsequently carried on by Dr.
Schofleld and the late Dr. Uglow.
Dr. Maclean Fraser will attend the
Pan-Pacific Congress, accompanying
Dean Brock. These professor* will

University of British Columbia at the
Two more professor* whose absence
will be felt In their department* have
been granted leave of absence for a
year. Dr. Boggs Is delivering a course
of lectures at Stanford University.
Professor Sadler Is doing research
work In dairying In Europe, and will
study in England, Denmark, Sweden
and perhaps in Italy. He will be away

Gas Pressure
Continuously Tested
THIS company makes regular tests of the pressure
of gas flowing in the mains. These show how
well the standard pressure is maintained at all times
in every part of the system.
The company is also making tests of pressure existing
in individual services. A gauge is attached to your
service at the meter outlet to establish the pressure at
that point. It shows the pressure at the time of the
heaviest demand as well as at the times when the
demand is less.
We want your gas service to be satisfactory. If you
have any complaint to make we will be glad to investigate and report.

Professor Oarglo McHooch, head of
tht* department of Cosmetics at Sagebrush University, Utah, has actually
solved tho problem of transporting
students to the V. B. C. In lime for
0 o'clock lectures.
The Professor Is visiting Ihe City
on his tour of Canada In connection
with his study of local moisture, in
an Interview with the "Ubyssey," he
gavo his solution of the transportation
problem *■ follows:
"I perceive that the 'bus service Is
such as to cause slight Inconvenience
to many students ot the U. B. 0. The
problem Is to carry two or three
hundred students In eight buses within
a period of five minutes,
"My flrst suggestion is to have more
buses on the line. Fifty or sixty
should be sufficient to enable a few
men students, at least, to have a seat.
"Palling that, another deck could
be built on top of the present buses,
with a system of stairways, ladders
and ropes to allow the passengers to
reach the upper storey. This Idea
has been approved by the Athletic
Associations of the University of British Columbia.
"Another solution Is to have the
students come earlier, but practical
experience shows that this is not feasible, a* comfort in bed is preferred
to comfort in buses.
"My next idea is to have all 9
o'clock lectures at 10 o'clock, or failing that, to have them at 9.16, a plan
already adopted by a number of students. Another alternative Is to Increase the prevailing tendency to cut
these lectures.
"In my opinion, however, the most
feasible way is to ask the students
taking 10 o'clock lectures to let the
9 o'clock classmates take the flrst
buses. B. C. University students are
known to be good sportsmen, and will
certainly have the courtesy to stand
back to enable the 9 o'clock ccholars
to reach these lectures on time.
The difficulty Is, however, to distinguish tho bona fide 9 o'clock students from the bus hogs. This can be
solved by giving the former a badge
of Identification, such as a tag, label
or card. Red and blue could be used
to distinguish the alternate days.
In coneluslon, I must commend the
practice of students In alleged automobiles of giving their less-fortunate
confreres a lift.
At thi' present time there is a strom;
mo'.ement afoot, sprnsored ehii (ly by
the Parent Teacher.-' A.'.-iociatioii, tn

Economics at the University of 11. O.

of the leading journals has mentioned
his return.  ,

Now that the Big Slater Movement
Is proving Itself successful, several
promising Ideas have been brought
forward for organising a "Big Brother" system along similar lines,
A very prominent speaker said If
we are to believe tho very accurate
report of the "Ubyssey"), "... to-day
I hear of a Big Bister movement whioh
you are organising to protect freshmen." if the Men's Undergraduate
Society Intends to foster an organisation along similar lines, he will shortly hear of a Big Brother Movement
to protect freshettes. It Is certain
that this will be oven more successful
than the original Idea.
On the other hand* It may be decided to organise a Big Brother Movement for the upper-classmen to look
after the freshmen, In other words, to
"help them understand tbe University
ways and generally initiate them Into
the mysteries of a University career."
If so, "You must try to give them as
good a time as possible, all you Big
Brothers, and don't let them feel lonesome."
As soon as the system Is established,
the seniors will be assigned to Little
Brothers of the flrst year. The aged
patriarchs of '27 will first pat their
small charges on the head and ask
them their names. Henceforth the
verdant ones will be known as
"Sammy," "Willie," "Tommy", etc., to
tho rest of the University. To gain
the confidence of their new Junior
relatives, the Big Brothers will take
them to the Grill and treat them to a
uottle of milk and a stick of candy.
Thus lasting friendships will be
formed at college during the first
The Big Brothers will lead these fraternal friends around the campus and
explain everything In the simplest
words possible, such as: "See Pretty
Prof!" "Cute Little Science Building,"
"Naughty Men's Common Room,"
"Fordie Fordie," etc. After this tour
the seniors will take their charges,
carefully wash the sticky candy from
their faces and hands, and show them
the Library. Particular attention will
be paid to the notice-boards in this
building, nnd the many injunctions
translated Into Froshese.
Then the Younger Brothers will
have their clothes tidied, their ties
neatly arranged and their hair
brushed and their elders will lead
them to their "dear teachers."
After the lectv..-es are done, the
Little Brothers will scamper to their
new-found guardians and regale them
wilh the happenings of the day.
These protectors will do their "homework" for them, place them on their
knees, tell them u bedtime story, and
."end them home before it gets dark.
I'nl'ortunately, wilh all this brotherly treatment, the Freshmen will hardly
be able to remember the words of
another speaker quoted by the
"Here . . every man Is tho architect of his own career. The University lias brought together men and
material from a thousand sources,
but upon you individually rests the
responsibility for utilizing these In
the fullest measure. All are yours.
How they shall be used rests with

this year and American Football dropped.
With this end In view every effort
I be made to take a real threat
to Victoria on October 14 to meet
.n Island team.
Real experience coupled with slse
and speed will be the feature of the
> and Gold team. Ross Jackson,

pound guard of three years experience both In American and Canadian
football, and Cecil Newby last year's
backfleld star. Currle will be out for
the quarter position and a fast baokfleld will be at his command.
Basketball starts its season on Monday. Many of last year's players will
be missing from the line-ups this
year, but a wealth of new players
has come In to fill their places. All
Freshmen and new players will have
a chance to show their form on Monday at five o'clock In the Normal
Gym. The practice period this year
is shorter so everybody must get
started early.   Show some Pep!

In conclusion, the club wishes to

Officials of the club hope that a liberal sprinkling of Varsity students
will adorn the grandstand at Athletio

U. B. C. students in former years have
been hopeleosly Indifferent to sport

freshmen rushing in where the angelic
