Three mixed crews, each made up of
two men and two women, have entered In tbis event, and although tbe

be able to test their oarsmanship.
The next event, the feature of the
day, will be the race between 'Varsity's First VIII, and the Vaucouver
Club's VIII. Although the Unlv.ralty
crew has only a few experienced men,
they have been training eagerly for
the event, which ia a preliminary
skirmish to the Washington race on
March 23rd.
The finals of the Novice Regatta
will close the series of races. This
regatta  Is  a  tournament  ef  crews

"Oat" Drama Charms
The flrst performance ot "Rollo's
Wild Oat" took place last night at
tbe Bhaughnessy Military Hospital
where the generous offer of the Players' Club was appreciated to the full
by both patients and staff.
In spite of inadequate dressing-
room and stage facilities, the college*
actors succeeded admirably in creating the atmosphere of this rather
difficult play, and the evening was
termed a success from behind and in
front of the footlights.
The players made full use of their
artistic costumes, with which "Rollo's Wild Oat" is replete, and the
many forms of modern and Shakespearean dress made the entire performance a veritable kaleidoscope of
brilliance and color.
Alfred A. Evans, as Rollo Webster
the would-be Hamlet, was consistent*
ly good throughout and Miss Vivian
3ood, in the language of the "stagey"
ra. Park-Gale. (Ann Ferguson),
"made a lovely Ophelia," ln her character as Ooldle MacDuff, the Ingenue,
tbe ever-popular Sydney Risk enhanced bis already enviable reputation with bis characterisation of
James Hewston, Hollo's butler. The
naturalness and informality of Mary
Stewart as Lydla Webster Was one
of the high lights of the play and the
young girl which she created will
long be remembered by her audiences.
The part of Grandfather Webster
was well-played by Alex Smith and
tbe old-maidenly Aunt Lane by Frances Madeley. The Shakeapearean
troupe consisted of Grevllle Rowland,
Dave MacDonald and Krlc North, and
Malcolm Pretty provided a relieving
contrast in the role of Able Stein, the
loud-mouthed, clgar-smoklng Broadway producer. Jean Salter officiated
as the Webster's maid, Bella.

Sooial work Is the sum of all tbe
efforts of society to take tip Its own
slack, quoted Miss Laura Holland,
Wednesday noon, hi • Agriculture 100.
This leoture was the second of a
series on vocational guidance, sponsored by the Women's Literary Society.
The speaker explained that the purpose of the welfare workers was to
"help the needy to become more useful In life", and sbe proceeded to
enunciate the different branches in
this extensive field of work.
Family-case workers might be compared to the old-fashioned family doctor, who flrst collects Information on
his case and then proceeds to diagnose It and prescribe a remedy, appealing to expert guidance in case
of necessity.
A medical social worker acts as a
connecting link between the hospital
and the home. In a Chicago Hospital
It Is the social worker rather than the
doctor who dismisses the patient,
when she feels that the home is ready
to receive it.
Health workers Include the Children's Agencies, such as the Children's
Aid Society, of which Miss Holland ls
head. The speaker explained how the
children were cared for in the Society's homes or were put out in board-
houses or free homes under careful
supervision, the object being to try to
overcome any lack of care they had
previously suffered, and to give them
every opportunity for the future.
Piny ground supervisors must have
a knowledge of human nature and
be willing to help people us*> their
leisure time to advantage.
The special group of workers closely linked with the courts must have
a knowledge of the mental hygiene
which has revolutionized Ideas In the
past few years. Miss Holland paused
here to stress the responsibility of
social Workers In giving relief, as it
might tend to take away the receiver's
self-respect, and thus do him more
harm than good.
Lastly comes research work, and
the speaker emphasised the fact that
no worker could be successful without ("trying to find out the causes of
the social ills of today."
Miss Holland closed her address by

I wish to express my appreciation
of the co-operation and consideration
given me by the Students' Counoil,
executive heads, and student body In
general, which have rendered my
duties as President of Men's Athletics
less onerous than otherwise they
would have been.
To build a specific platform at this

a few ideas I would like to see developed to some degree next session:
First, an active body, perhaps the

To the Members of the Alma Mater
In seeking an office on Council It
Is well that a man should define his
conception of Council and the relationship which It bears to other student activities. To my mind Council Is
not only the co-ordination of different
executive bodies but also a board of
students, supervising the activities
and advancing the standards and honor of their Alma Mater. They oarry
through the routine of the year's work
and In addition search constantly for
more progressive methods.

that as three names will be on each

and second choice for president, This
Is necessary for In the event of no
candidate receiving fifty-one per cent,
of the votes polled, then the person

and the position of president wlU b*

A campaign meeting will be held
to-day at noon. That nominations for
all other positions on the- Students'
Council must be In by 6 p.m. on Maroh
18, is the decision of the Council.
tn connection with the building df
the gymnasium the Council ekprbS-bd
Itself in favor of considering a campaign for the required funds. A list*
ter box and an office for selling
stamps within the University precincts may be realised ln the near future If the plans discussed by the
Council materialise. Upon receiving
a request from the Players' Club for
chore stage equipment the Council
decided to appoint a committee to
take stock of the stage apparatus already in possession of, the various organisations, council reaffirmed a former decision not to replace block letters, a proposal to aid in financing
an Intercollegiate athletic conference
was rejected. The Senior Olass boating trip budget Was quashed because
of Irregularities in presentation.
With regard to tbe European tour
for students this summer the Executive council of the N. F. C. U. S. accepted the proposal of the International Confederation of Students to send
a selected party of Canadian nolle*
gians to Europe. A'
The Exchange of Students plan haa
had a popular reception at U. B. C,
though tbe definite details of the
srheme have still to be worked out,
reports Doug. Macdonald, our representative on the National Federation
of Canadian University Students. A
large number of inquiries have been
made and tbe plan evidently appeals
to students ln all branches of University life, athletic and scholastic.
Not only undergraduates of every year
are considering this but also many
graduates are meditating benefiting
in post-graduate work by it
Mr. Macdonald says he wtll be able
to announce the final arrangements
soon, as this week the scheme is un*
der consideration ot the Faculty Committee on Courseo, who will decide
on the credits to be given for courses
in other Universities, and the stand*
ing of students returning home after
enjoying one year of the exchange.
It is necessary, however, for all stu*
dents interested in the scheme to
make immediate inquiries from him
since the dosing day for applications
is March 25. As Junior Momber he
will be able to give all the information wanted from the student point
of view.

During ths next week or bo the annual elections with their
prerequisite campaigning will be upon us. We feel that lt is necessary at the outset of all this to remind the student body, especially the freshman olass, that these will not be contests for
popularity prises, but elections to positions of responsibility.
Before casting their votes students should consider that it is
not entirely personality but character and ability that should
be judged in weighing the merits of the particular candidates-
We therefore urge that tho upper years should take trouble to
advise the new members of the Alma Mater Society as to the
respective merits of the candidates but they should not, however, advocate the support of those who may be charming friends,
yet lack the necessary qualifications for the respective offices.
All this may seem obvious, but it is equally apparent that this
warning has been frequently neglected In the past. Student
self'government carries with it many obligations, especially in
a university which is a public institution, and one of the more
important of these should be to ensure that those whom we
eleot to the Students' Council are worthy ol the honor aocorded
From the point of view of attendance the concerts of the
Musioal Society Were a failure. That, however, Is past praying
for. The conductor, Mr. Williams, is naturally disappointed
with the obvious lack of support on the part of the students
and it Is rumored that he will not be with the Society next
year, Por four years now1 Mr. Williams has guided the destinies
of the Sooiety and during that time has put into the work all
his ability, energy and enthusiasm, — and only those who are
acquainted with him know what a store of these qualities he
has. This year to make up in some measure for the weakness
of the musioal material at his command, he haB, we are told,
given at least 100 extra hours to rehearsals, i.e. over and above
Sbe four regular noon hours per week. This fact is clear evi-
ence of Mr. Williams' attitude to his work as conductor. Perhaps his Judgment in trying so ambitious a program with the
material at his disposal is open to question. But the fact is that
the Society under his baton has been sudying some of the musical classics, and such study, after all, should be the main
justification for a University Musical Club's existence. Whether
the society is obliged to present the results of this year's work
at a public concert is a nice question which does not call for
argument here. One matter about which there is no question
is the conductorship. It is difficult to see how Mr. William's
place could be adequately filled. The Ubyssey is voicing the
sentiments of not only the Musical Society but of all who are
interested In music when it expresses the hope that the services
of Mr Williams Will not be withdrawn from the University.
At the time of printing Miss Helen
Smith and Miss Betty Mooie of the
Debating Union are on their way to
Lindfield College, an Oregon Institution similar ln size to It. B. C. On
Saturday, they will debate with the
American college team on the subject:
"Resolved that a substitute for the
Jury System should be adopted."
The announcement ot this debate
will come as a pleasant surprise to
the many who are interested in public
speaking among the women of this
University, and lt one may judge by
tho enthusiastic audiences which attended the Courses in Public Speaking presented by the Women's Literary Sooiety. This interest in women's
debating, ls Indeed keen.
Both members of tbe team are prominent in the University. Miss Helen
Smith o! Arts '29 Is well known, as
President of the Women's Literary
Society, and also as a public speaker,
havlug debated at Washington University last year and having won the
Women's Oratorical Contest ot 1927.
Miss Moore ls Vice-President of the
Debating Union and Women's Literary Representative of Arts '81 and
was one ot the debaters who met the
Washington team here last year.

Waltz atWigwam
Despite the steady drizzle which
kept up most ot the day the graduating classes of Arts, Science, aud
Agriculture proved to be incurable
optimists during their outing to Wigwam Inn on Wednesday. The inclement weather did uot prevent dancing
aboard the palatial "liner" Harbour
Princess. Some preferred to play at
cards and some to engage in tete k
totes on the ship.
At the Inn dancing and bridge were
the attractions. A billiard table was
discovered in the basement but the
manager of the hotel ordered the cueists out. While the three piece or-
chostra was at supper Oordon Rae was
pianist tor tbe hosts of draggers. Ham
sandwiches, olives, three kinds of
cake, and coffee constituted the refreshments.
Philosophy Club
Applications for membership In the
Philosophy Discussion Club will be received until Friday, March 16. They
must be In writing and signed by two
members of the club. Membership is
open to any student who has completed Philosophy 1., and who is interested in problems of philosophy,
especially those of psychology.
There are a number of members ln
the Club who have been absent from
more than two meetings this year.
According to the constitution of tho
club, suoh members must renew their
applications If they wish to remain
ln the dub.
All application, should be addressed
to Miss Evelyn Cliff, secretary, and
left in the student letter-rack in the
Arts building.
The next meeting of the AJouette
Club will be held at ths home of Professor and Mra. Seyer, 2 Wesbrook
Crescent, on Monday, March 11. The
meeting will start at 7.46 p.m. sharp,

Ing minor sports and also Junior
teams to major sport, in order to
develop material for our flrst string
teams and give everyone a chance to
Indulge In some athletic activity. The
major teams of course deserve full
support. *
The N. F. C. U. S., whose operations
have been outlined recently has my
unqualified support. I consider the
student exchange Idea an excellent one
and Shall endeavor to see that it is
carried out.
The great question for next year is
the financial one. There Is the problem of the furnishing of the new gymnasium. 1 believe a campaign can be
successfully conducted to attain this
objective. I am thoroughly acquainted with the work of the Committee
on Finance and feel that they have
contributed much. I do not, however,
believe that the Busin&is Manager
plan is feasible, If the position is to
be held by an undergraduate, simply
because of the difficulty in finding a
suitable man each year, and the loss
of efficiency entailed in the continuous change.
In closing I may say that I realise,
from my experience on Counoil, tbe
Importance of the position of President. It Involves the ability to conduct meetings of the Alma Mater
Society. More important still is the
function of guiding the deliberations
of council In Its decisions regarding
the administration of the business ot
the Society. I have signified by accepting the nomination that I consider myself capable of discharging
these duties.
I wish to take this opportunity to
thank those who have shown their
confidence In me by signing my
nomination papers.

We believe that the candidate we
are putting In the political field is
really representative of an apathetic
Student Body. His election promises
contain the correot portion of hooey
to Imagination and his ability cannot
be doubted since bis meritorious achievements are stated elsewhere on
this page. We are sincerely backing
him to win this momentous conflict
and depend upon the rest of the Uni*
versify to aid us in the coming clash.
Now that we have bad our say we
oan do one thing and that Is say It
over again. Let us drain our Icecream conos to the last dregs in a

Maybelle F. McOIIlIcuddy, popular
campus belle has accepted the nomination for Secretary of tbe A. M. 8.
The publicity given to Maybelle on
former Muck Pages has convinced
the students that Mabel is worthy of
the position.
Her beauty has not only charmed
the Pub. Board, but has also caused
tbe admiration of both Football and
Grass-hockey clubs to be given. She
not only excels in looks but also in
sports since her record-breaking jump
of 84 ft. six inches (when prodded
by the News Manager's pen) has yet
to be equaled by any Olympic
Maybelle has had years of experience in secretarial work. Her writing of the reports of meetings has so
developed that at present no one can
understand them. This is an admirable thing in itself since it curtails
animosity and bickering in a club
over its former meetings.
Sho also has represented the Swimming Club on many foot-ball fields.
Altogether her highly estimable
reoord deems her a worthy opponent
for anyone not running.
Two novel systems of voting have
been evolved by the Publications
political expert after weeks of consideration.
The voters will go to a rope hanging
outside tho Council room window
There a member of the voting committee will fasten the rope ubout the
ballot-dropper's neck and he will be
hauled up in this manner to the poll.
By this time he probably will be un
conscious so a McGoofus official will
vote for him.
The second method is that our candidate will vote for himself thus saving the time and effort of the voter.
The benefits of the latter system are
obviously clear.
Fag-Lighters to Feature
In Torchlight Procession
A torchlight procession across the
Campus by all those who own cigar
ette-llghters will take placo on the
night of Rufus' victory. All those
who own lighters are asked to be
well supplied with matches since the
success of the procession must be assured.
This should be an Inspiring spectacle for in the light of flickering
torches the marchers will sing the
candidate's favorite song, (Words by
the English department, Lyric by
Math. Profs.) a song dear to the old
Alma Mater and one that has often
been sung on the hallowed old
campus, "He's the Varsity Drag."
College spirit will be evident ln all
students and lighters.
Secret Revealed
A secret, little known to the general public, is the name that tho "W"
stands for In Rufus W. McGoofus.
Now that Rufus is trying to get somewhere he has decided to have no
secrets from his public-—the "W"
stands for Washout. The reason for
keeping the name a secret Ih quite apparent.       	
Rufus W. McGoofus, The People's Friend
Runs for Presidency of Council
Rufus W. McGoofus, the people's friend and also the freshmen's has de*
elded to run for the presidency of the Alma Mater Society. Though at first
unwilling, be has finally consented after a long consultation with the Feature
Editor-in-Chief, tbe Feature Staff, and the Feature Assistants. Mr. Mo*
Ooofus, now that he has entered the contest, has the student body stolidly
behind him in the epoch-making fight
•Mr. Rufus We McGoofus
The above picture Is a flattering
likeness of the Muekandldate, Mr.
Rufus W. /MoGoofus. You have probably seen end known this prominent
man before, but that should net In*

Mr. Shrdlu Etaoln, former Counoil

with sucb words as these:
"As Lincoln once said, 'You can fool
some of tbe people some of the time,
and some of the people asome of the
time, but you can't fool some of tbe
people some of the time,' and so I
think with such foolish qualities as
Mr, MoOoofus possesses he should
make an ideal president.
Rufus made his platform clear,
yesterday, when be spoke to an
enormous audience |n Arts III. Hla
various views appearing below on tbe
questions troubling tbe Profs., but
not the students put to rest the ideas
that he would not state exactly what
be meant to do if put in office,

ennui to rest 1 will settle the question
at once by Mussollnl-llke methods. It
will be passed by one vote, that one

money in all forms and so this Finance Bill appeals to me.
As to Frat* I will put them all on

this time our worthy paper the
"Ubyssey" will be upholding their
cause for the freedom of the downtrodden. Thus is that question set-
Tbe main issue of this political

those attending the University—that
there should be one cent candies in the
Cafeteria and also free drinking
water. At present the Cat conditions
are atrocious since water may be obtained only at the cost ot great effort or disguised under th. name of
Mr. MoOoofus has had a checkered
career, both in the Upper Common
room and on the Library Concourse.
He has been the Lit Representative
for Arts '28, '27 and '26 during bis
Senior year.
In track too has Rufus excelled.
Never, say all the coaches hnve they

finders with a fi-toothed rake better
than our candidate.
To the Aggies his ability to "throw

Sororities Emphasize
—M. Muirhead
Margaret Muirhead, Arts 81, one of
the leading debater* of her year and
runner-up In. the U. B, 0. Oratorical
opntesti . submitted the following
ttateti'eht when interviewed by tho
vWrnt bn the question of Sororities.
"In reply to a request for expression of opinion regarding sororities, I
feel that it is always somewhat difficult to give an adequate criticism
of any organisation when Judging it
merely from the outside. In my opinion, however, the gravest criticism of
Sororities is that they tend to emphasise social distinctions in a democratic educational institution, Although there may be an earnest desire on the part of many individual
members of a sorority to avoid suoh
Sooial distinction*), yet there is no
oubt that the criticism is Justified.
In some universities, also, the line of
Separation between sorority and non*
Sorority students Is a very marked
one, eventually resulting In outtlng off
teany students of fine promise outside
Such organisations from coming to the
front in college affairs.
The only obvious advantage ot sororities to the members themselves
Appears to be tbe opportunity they
dfford for the cultivation of friendships and social relationships, and It
oannot be denied that they must add
greatly to the pleasant experiences
aad memories of University life.
Bat the variety and breath of the
contacts whioh a University offers is
pae of ItB greatest advantages,—an
advantage often lost by students
Whose friendships are almost wholly
confined within the narrow limits of
Again, what contribution doe* a sorority make to the University? Would
the University as an educational institution slitter greatly If sororities were
Abolished? I thing not. Surely the
abundance Of social activity to be
found in a sorority or fraternity is
dttea detrimental to a high standard
of scholarship. Moreover, do the best
interests of a University ever suffer
through the loyalty and esprit de
dorps of sorority members? Do they
wad to dominate student affairs?
The facts that suoh questions are
being constantly asked, and that certain Universities are seriously considering abolishing suoh so-called
"arletorcratlc oligarchies" within a
college community certainly raise
serious doubts as their value, as at
present constituted, in a provincial
If, however, the membership in such
Organisations could be limited to
third and fourth year students, who
ave had their opportunity for mak-
I the broader contacts, and who
possess a finer sense of values, along
with a keener feeling of responsibility
to their Alma Mater, sororities, under
these more Ideal conditions, might
become a real asset to University
The women of Arts '31 are expected
to win the Womens Relay in the
Interclass track meet which will be
held next Wednesday on the oval

Muriel Harvie and Claire Menten are
going to put up a good tight for the
victory. MarJ. Lannlng, the old

of the meet but it is known that they
have many good runners.
There are very few entries so far
for the broad jump and high Jump

Tourtelotte: Arts '82 Florence Carlisle.
The events are: 100 yards dash, 50
yards dash, broad Jump, high Jump,
basketball throw and relay.
My decision Is that
Have a Manager
Athletic Board
To be Localized
"Steps have at last been completed
whereby tbe University Athletlo
authorities will work Independently
of city amateur officials" stated Mr.
Dunn, President Men's Athletics. This
ruling came into effect whon the
Provincial Amateur board ruled that
the Men's AtbleUo Executive shall
constitute a local amateur board.
This means, explained My. Dunn, that
the Men's Athletic Executive will have
oomplete control ot all Its athletics,
Including tbe suspension and reinstatement of players, All trips mads
abroad by th. University teams will
be made only on the authority of
the newly constituted board whioh
will also issue amateur cards to all
University athletes. Biuoe amateur
cards for this year expire on March
1, Mr. Dunn advises that all students
wishing to participate in summer
sports should procure a new card as
soon as possible from the secretary
tit the Men's Athletics.
"As a roster ot principle I shall
resist", Stated Paul Murphy. Debates
Manager, as his. was forcibly ejected
by Bert JAgger from the regular Mon-
day ineetlllg of the Student's Council.
His summary dismissal Was the result Of his presentation of the budget
for tbe intercollegiate debate, when
he stated that tbe expected surplus
froiri the evenings receipts would be
about $3,000. After due correction tbe
statement was accepted.
in vindication of his position, Mr.
Murphy stated that as a member of
the Alma Mater Society, he saw no
reason why he should be restricted
from attending any meeting of tho
Stltdent G-uncll. Mr. Tolmie. in response to this statement, observed
that since Mr. Murphy had concluded
his business it was expedient that he
should depart, Mr. Murphy's refusal
and reiteration of his position was
the signal for the husky president of
the Mehs Undergrad Society to take
a hand In matters.

Any changes of this nature, If they
must be made, will require shrewd
foresight and sound judgment, this
year by the practice of the utmost
economy Council has succeeded in
keeping within its income and making us an Inherited deficit of nearly
six hundred dollars. If the Council
next year Is to maintain our credit It
must continue to be scrupulous with
Its generosity, keeping a steady eye
upon expenditures while constantly
striving to Increase our revenue from
money-making functions.
