THK difference between university i
training and that of high school
wus explained to the Freshmen liy
Chancellor It. K. McKoehtiie nt the open-
ing of the fixteenth session of the University of British Columbia in the auditorium, Tuesday afternoon. The newcomers wore advised on the need of a
happy medium between athletics mul
Dr. McKechnie also told thein iu coming to college the Freshmen were entering on n new educational life and that
they were now standing on the platform
of the achievement of tlie apes since they
eneounteietl a new plane of initiative,
where elevation depended on effort.
Athletics should not be stressed lo
the detriment of studios, nor should they
be neglected, the chancellor proeeeedd.
He complimented Students' Com eil
on its now eligibility rules which will
prevent the Freshmen from over-indulging in extra-curricular activities.
President L. S. Klinck acted as
chairman for the opening and introduced the speakers to the audience.
He congratulated the Freshman introductory committee, composed of
Dr. J. Maclnnes, Dr. J. G. Davidson,
Dr. G. Shrum and Pro. A. E. Jordan
on their work in introducing the
Freshmen to the university.
The history of the rise of the university from origin to its present stage was
outlined by Dean R. W. Brock. He
stated that the universities of to-day
have the wealth of the past combined
with the intellect of the present,
Dean F. M. Clement -tated that opportunities in the field of ugiicultu.e
were now greater than ever. Dean
Buchanan in his witty speech gave his
dictum to the wily calendar dodger in
the statement, "Oo to the .library, thou
Dean M. L. Bollert, Dean of Women,
repudiated the idea that too many persons were rushing into college by quoting the opinions of the present day business men. "The world hus never Iwen
more hospitable to college graduates
than it is now," she said. "More and
more graduates and students are finding!
their way into responsible positions in!
the business  field,"  she concluded.

"The only pepole to be encouraged

In his welcoming address to the
Freshmen nt the auditorium, Tuesday
"Changing standards cuuse indefinite values in educution but students
absorbed creditably in a university
are absorbed probltably for the country," he continued.
"Open enrolment giving opportunities to young people who give promise of benefiting by it is the answer
to agitation for the limitation of registration by academic standards," he
Dr. Klinck answered questions like
"Does University pay? Is it being to
widely diffused and are the masses
being made the victims of university
education which were being asked by
the public." He asserted that if education was rational and effective we
cannot have too much of it.
He claimed that there were as many
serious minded students ln the universities to-day as in the past. "The
university has not the time, money
and energy to waste on student who
come to college mainly for student
activities," he said.
"Registration is not dimished by
business depressions but increased by
it due to the thoughts of people on
the value of education in making
money," the President claimed.
Dr. Klinck concluded his speech
with the statement that a student
could attain success if he kept his activities in the right proportion.
Changes Made in Calendar

WITH Ihe basketball championship of th' Women's Olympiad
won, Varsity's triumphant basketball girls return to Vancouver at 10
o'clock tonight from their tour, whioh
took tlium to Prague and a victorious
The championship wus secured by the
decisive defeat of the French toam in a
rough game, fought out on a oinder
court, The Canadian girls wero handicapped by having to play according to
the French rules. This mo uit that there
could be no substituting except for in*
juries, and there were no rests between
quarters. "More like rugby football
than basketball," is the description that
co:ch Jock Bnrberie fiver of France's
hoop   tactics.
In the first half the challengers more
than held their own, finishing with the
score 14-8 in their favor. Speed and determination overcame the French girls'
resistance. The second half wns apparently the roughest, when the referee is
said to have become anxious about the
prospects of the French team, and to
have failed to note fouls. France had
the best of it by 6-4, but the Canadian
team came out as victor with the total
score of 18-14.
It wns when the Edmonton Orads
were puying their successful visit to the
University of British Columbia last
spring that the idea of the University
girls going lo Em ope was first mooted.
Percy Page, the coach of the Grads, declined that since his team would he unable
to make the trip, the U. B. C. aggregation was tbe next best representative
that Canada could send. Interest in the
idea grew and a committee of business
men organized to support un effort to
raise funds. The work of conducting
a campaign for subscriptions was taken
over by Bill Thomson, Frayne Gordon
and "Pinky" Stewart, former university
men, und the response was generous. Mr.
John Russell, business manager of the
Daily Province, lent bis full support, as
did Louis Tisman of the same paper,
Percy Williams and a number of other
well-wishers assisted in interviewing on
behalf of the fund, and about f 8,500 was
raised, of which $1,000 was given by the
Students' Council of the University.
Mr. M. W. Morton, Vancouver, manager
of the Bonk of Commerce, handled the
money and attended to the financing of
the project. Travelling arrangements
were supervised by Mr. Brud Hlivney of
the C. P. R., who'accompanied the team
to Montreal and saw them sail for Europe,
where they were still taken care of by
tlie C.   PH.  agencies.
Five of the nine girls on the championship team. Claire Menten, Thelma
Malum, Rettie Tingley, Rene Harris and
Jean Whyte, were part of the aggregation
that c,ulied off the provincial championship I wo years ago. Aftci losing the year
before due to a poor start, they came out
victorious in the City league last winter.

The confusion of the first few days is over, und the sixteenth
session of the University of British Columbia is now well under
way.    With the appearance of this issue the "Ubyssey" opens
another chapter in its history as the student newspaper.   In the
months to come it hopes to record the events of a year more successful than any that have trone before.    The past has seen
jrreat achievements in scholastic, cultural and athletic fields, but
these should serve as challenges to still greater efforts and even'
finer results.
The opening of the fall term finds hundreds of students upon
the campus who are attending this Institution for the flrst time, i.   ......       . „ ..... .       ,,,.,.,       ,-.   ,  ■
To these we extend a cordial welcome, and bespeak for them the |to he heW financially responsible tor any breach of faith on their.
interest and the friendship of the rest of the university.   Onel;')ttrt*
warning must be given to the Freshmen, and it is that the bene-,        If there is lacking the imagination and the originality to in-
fit a student derives from his university career depends upon the I vent new initiation rites, corresponding, in a general way, with
amount of interest and effort he puts into his work.    This is ! the characteristics that have been outlined as necessary for a
hackneyed advice indeed, but advice whose great truth is often i satisfactory ceremony, and a ceremony of which the main tea
not realized until failure results, or the student goes forth into j tares will form the basis of a new ritual, then the whole business
the world proud in the possession of a degree but vaguely  dissatisfied, in his more reflective moments, to perceive how cheaply and tastelessly and scantily he has furnished his mind after
ful and picture.que features to take the place of the old ones •
must be introduced, so that the foundations of a traditional pro-1
gram may be laid.   Failure to accomplish this in a satisfactory j
way will leave two other possible futures for initiation; a decline in general student interest may commence,   due   to   thej
drabness of the events and their enactment   so  far  from   the;
central part of the city—this resulting in the gradual dying out j
of the custom; or an undesirable hazing performed by the rougher j
elements of the Sophomore year, may be the development.        j
|       Since it would show slight consideration for the gymnasium |
| if the preliminary exercises were held there, they must be con-;
| ducted either in the open or some place in the city.   If the ini-(
' tiation is to center on the campus, it would seem best to keep the
whole thing together.    One of the playing fields could be used
for the more physical events and these events would be so regulated that they could be enjoyed by all and would be harmful
or dangerous to none.
To make a big bonfire would be difficult because of the long
distance most of the material would need to be brought, but it
should be posiblt. to have a smaller blaze, A Theatre Party
might be held in the Auditorium with the Freshmen putting on
the program, and a Snake Parade should be made a successful
feature  if properly organized.
It might be a good idea to have the ceremony at the cairn
on this night instead of in the morning. The whole Freshman
class could be present and a supper for them in the cafeteria
would conclude the evening, There are possibilities in this arrangement for a much more impressive ('aim Ceremony than
the one that has been held on "the morning after" for the past
few years.
Whatever is done, there will be the problem of preventing
damage to property to deal with.   A good safeguard would be to
allow the proceedings only   on  condition   that  the  Sophomore i
classes agree not to do damage of any kind, and further agree.

Plans for the initiation ceremony this year are not yet definitely decided, but the Initiation Committee is now working out
the details. A drastic revision of the customary features is the
chief problem involved. Just when it seemed that a very satisfactory program had been evolved in the last few years, it became necessary to make fundamental changes.
Last fall the Freshmen assembled in the Normal School gymnasium on the momentous evening, and at the conclusion of activities there the pyjama-clad, black-faced novices were escorted
downtown for a Theatre Party by their inductors. When this
was over, the great Snake Parade began, compos -d of Freshmen
and other energetic students. Winding back and forth across,
the streets, the long line swept on its way. Varsity yells thund-.
ered through beer parlours and picture houses, and rose above
the din of automobile horns at strategic corners. A concluding
innovotation was the huge bonfire built by the Freshmen at
Recreation Park, where thousands gathered to watch the weird
figures dancing around the flaming pyre. So ended whnt was
thought to be an eminently successful Initiation Night.
An  unfortunate  incident  had occurred   during   the   snake
parade, however, when an elderly man was injured as a swerw
jn thi' line of running studenls caused him to be knocked down.
This accident cost the Alma Mater Society a great deal of mmi >v,
and it was decided that in the future the Students' Council could,
not officially sponsor such parades.    There has always been the'
difficulty of preventing rowdies from joining in, and these were
responsible for most of what property damage was done.    Then
the possibilities of serious and expensive accidents occurring had i
been shown, and it was felt that the risk could not In- run again.
The wisdom of this decision cannot, lie denied but the abandonment of the Snake Parade is a regrettable matter.
The initiation proper must now take place on the University
Campus. It is very important that the most careful attention
be given to what is done this year, because succeeding years will
model their ceremonies on the precedents established. A new
ritual to meet the changed conditions must be devised, and color-

Stephen Leacock Gives
Views on Education
What is the function of the college
professor? Stephen Leacock once
said, "It is the business of an American college professor to chase his
students along over a prescribed
ground at a prescribed pace like a
flock of sheep.
"They all go jumping over the
hurdles, the professor chasing them
with a set of 'tests' and 'recitations,'
'marks' and 'attendances'—the whole
apparatus obviously copied from the
time clock of the business man's factory.
"This process is called 'showing
results' or the 'convoy system of education,' This system contains in itself the seeds of dullness. It puts a
premium on dullness and a penalty
on genius. The pace must be set by
the   slowest  and   genius   rots."
Hawaiian University Gives Many
A schedule of classes to be given
at the University of Hawaii for the
first term of tit.'ll shows 2011 different courses under .'io main subjects.
President David L. Crawford says
that the mere listing of these main
subjects gives some idea of the variety and scope of instruction offered
by the University, and reveals some
differences between instruction at the
University of Hawaii and similar institutions on the mainland.
The main subjects are as follows:
agriculture, art, botany, chemistry,
Chinese, economics, business, education, civil engineering, machine design, mechanical engineering, English, French, German, Hawaiian, Japanese, geography, geology, history,
home economics, mathematics, military science, physical education,
physics, political science, psychology,

Maiden Voyage
"Four years at college is all too short
a time to acquire the background necessary to appreciate the glorious past of
the old country," declared Professor
Wood enthusiastically, on his return
from a tour of Europe with the Oversea-
Education League.
The tour which was taken by some
eighty Canadian undergraduates, included
visits to Scotland, England, France, Germany and Switzerland. Many universities were visited, many spots of worldwide interest, such as the league of
Nations building at Geneva; tlte high
spot of the tour being. Oberaininergnu
at the time of the Passion Play.
Concerning the high lights of his trip,
Professor \Nood said, "My three most
precious meinuiies of Scotland are the
magnificent view from Stirling Castle
over many miles of rolling country; the
National War Memorial in Edinbtirirli
Castle, where tribute is paid •«■ every
Scot lish regiment thai fought iu the great
war called in ll. V. Morton's "In
Search of Scotland" "the Soul of Scotland;" nnd a thunderstorm in the West
Highlands, as eerie an ex|H<i'ienee as ever
ctiiiic my wav."
In England the tinest features of the
trip iu Mr. Wood's estimation were the
great Five Sisters' Window in York
Cathedral; the view from Warwick
Castle down the Avon River— oalled
"England in a Nutshell": and the City
of liondun as seen from tlie dome of St.
Paul's on a clear day, stretching awuy for
twenty miles on every side.
On the Continent three more "high
peaks" came to Mr. Wood's memory.
Tlie Arc de Triomphe in Paris, under
which is tlie grave of the French Unknown Soldier; Geneva by night, a
veritable fairy city with its many colored
lights inflected in the Lake and the Rhone
River; and tlie Crucifixion Scene in the
Oberammorgau Passion Play.
On the trip home, Professor Wood
visited three of his former " Alma Muter "
—Columbia, Harvard, and McGiil—o_
well as many Canadian Universities.
"But," he added, "1 have never soen
one location than can compare with ours.
"As a freshman visiting Europe." he
concluded, smiling, "my impressions are
amateur and enthusiastic. It hus been
a wonderful experience—one not to lie

Strong Varsity squad eager for battle. Western Canadian Intercollegiate Champions praised as best team developed in
West in many years. Dr. Gordon Burke confident Varsity will
surprise Tiger host. Captain Sandy Smith leads team from snap
Fresh from the ten day training camp at
Bowen Island, where the squad received a
concentrated course in football tactics, the
fighting Canadian Rugby team of U. B. C,
Intercollegiate Champions of the Western Canada, is rapidly rounding into condition for the
forthcoming game with the Hamilton Tigers.
To-night, after a dinner in the Cafeteria, Dr.
Gordon Burke, the Varsity Coach, will outline
to his charges some of the finer points of the
game in a short chalk talk. The final practice is scheduled for tomorrow morning and
the finishing touches will be administered to
the plays at that time. Final instruction will
be given on Sunday evening when the boys
will meet at Dr. Burke's home.
The Varsity Gird aggregation that will trot
on the field Monday evening to oppose the
Canadian Champions in the flrst night game
of Canadian Rugby ever played will be one
of the strongest that has represented the Point
Grey school. The line with a weight average of 177 lbs. is composed of a group of
veterans, with aevoral new men in reserve.
It is rather interesting to note that two of
the U.B.C. linemen that will play against the
experienced Tiger squad have never played in
a Canadian Rugby Game before. Roger Hager
at Inside and Bill Williscroft at Middle are
recruits from the freshman class who have
played English Rugby in High school and have

Earl Vance
the president of the Canadian Hugby
tht greatest boosters the university
has ever had. Furl graduated
from King George High school
and came to Varsity with the idea
that there is no place like the University of British Columbia and he
has imparted his optimistic views
on his acquaintances. Earl formed
the Canadian Rugby Club last year
as president and handled the job
with the greatest ease. This yenr
even greater thing can be expected

Doctor Burke is undoubtedly the reason for
Varsity's outstanding success in the football field.
He started his gridiron earlier on a sand lot team
and upon graduation from grammer school played
three years at end of the famous Tacoma ' High
School team. At college he continued his success
at track and football when he won quarter mile for
Washington and it was only as result of a mid-
season injury that he did not gain his big "W."
"Doc" has been with the Varsity squad for five
years during which he has won five major championships,
this season. Both men have shown great aptitude in learning tho fundamentats of the
game and should show up well in Monday's
Sandy Smith, the Captain of the team, who
is playing on the Varsity squad for the fourth
season will hold down the snap position with
Frank Perdue, a husky intermediate, as reserve. For insides the students have Jim
Winters and Ernie Peden, two of last year's
regulars, who can be depended upon to do
their share of the line work, while Harold
Cliffe and Larry Jack, also lettermen of the
last two years, will be at Middle. The Wings
this fall are stronger than they have been
for some time with Cam Duncan, Dick Fanlng-
ton and Lyle Jestley going down under the
punts. Dick Moore and Don Tyreman will
function at Flying Wing.
The Backfleld this year is largely composed
of men new to Big Four Rugby. They are all
light and fast and should use their end runs
to good advantage against the Dominion Title-
holders. Fred Bolton, Scotty Mclnnes and
Gordon Root are slated for the quarter position although Bolton may alternate at half
for some of the time. Both Bolton and Root
are backfleld men of last year while Mclnnes
has come up from the intermediates. For
halves, the Varsity mentor is depending on
Billl Latta, Jack Steele, Louis Cnodat and Ed.
Johnson. Latta is the only letterman of the
four, Johnson and Steele being recruits from
the Intermediate snuad while Chodat is playing the game for the first time.
As a result of the ten days spent at the
training camp the student team is in excellent
condition condition and will be out to give
Hamilton a tough battle. The team is very
young and fast in comparison to the veteran
members of the Eastern aggregation and it
is on this speed that Dr. Burke is pinning his
hopes of making a good showing against the

Chang Suey
Chapter One
I reineinber as if it were yesterday
my tlrst meeting with Arnold Anderson. It was in that popular university resort and house of mystery the
'lamale Den -whether I, Oscar Scrih-
blewell, reporter on the "Ubyssey,"
had gone in an effort to locate llimiv
O'Cirady, the news manager. I had
taken a seat in the only unoccupied
booth in the place and was patiently
unravelling Chinese noodles as I
waited for the news manager to make
his nightly appearance.
I paid no attention to the shouting
and singing emitted by the dozens of
students and other loafers who patronized the den, but kept my eyes fixed
on the door through which I expected
to appear the man I sought.
Suddenly the door was thrown open
and a tall man over six feet in height
entered, his hat drawn to conceal his
features. I stared fixedly, and juat
as I had decided that he was not
Himie, the news manager, he looked
up nnd darted a piercing glance that
sent a thrill rattling down my spine.,
I knew at once that here was no or-
nary man. Perhaps he was a new
assistant professor. A thousand speculations crowded my mind as I
scented the possibility of a news story.
Still holding my gaze with his, he :
glided forward and slid into the seat
opposite me. I moved my bowl of (
noodles closer and grasped it with a
protecting fist.
"You are Oscar Seribbleweil," he
"I know," I replied, shocked at this
rattling of the family skeleton.
He fastened a basilisk gaze upon me
and leaned forward. I placed both
hands around the noodles.
"You are in great danger," he
enunciated slowly, "but it is not yet
too late. I will save you this time.
But the next—who can say?" j
"Who are you?" I gasped. ,
He was visibly shocked at my ignor-!
ance but mastered his emotion. He j
leaned even closer.
"My name is Spalding—I mean
Arnold Anderson."
Arnold Anderson! The power behind tbe Students' Council! The great
mind that overcame all obstacles, The
man whose name was on a thousand
lips, but whose innate modesty forced
him to keep to the seclusion of his
unobtrusive   office.
I  pushed the noodles toward  him.
"A thousand pardons. I should
hnve known you. Now what is your
opinion on the Honor System?" I
produced   a   pencil   and   my   notebook.
Anderson looked carefully around
him,  even  under  the seat.
"Oscar Seribbleweil, Chang Suey
has   returned!"
My blood froze within me ami my
heart seemed as heavy as lead.
"Chang Suey." I could only murmur,    "('hang  Suey!"
My mind went back to my awful
adventures of three years before, when
I was in Arts MO. Chang Suey, the
master criminal of the ages, the Yellow Peril incarnate, had threatened
destruction to the entire world and
had been foiled at last through my
humble efforts. And now he had returned once more.
"What is he going to do?" I
"His first thought will be revenge
on you, the man who thwarted him.
After that—who  knows?"
I dug my fork feverishly into the
bowl  before  me.
"Stop!" cried Anderson. "Poison!
Another hour and you might have unravelled a piece and unknowingly
gone to your doom. Come with inc.
It is no longer safe to remain here."

What is it, this thing called love?
Someone has said that it's the thing
that  makes the  world  go round,   a
song writer finds that it solves the
mystery of life,  but on the campus
it's manifestations ure most unusual
and  peculiar to university  students. I
The following seems to be the way in I
which it weaves a spell over typical!
individuals. '
The freshman.   He drinks too much
coffee, forgets his eight o'elocks. Ten-!
dency to wear red neckties with green i
shirts, to write the   initials   of   his
amoruta in three varieties of printing
on  his  history  book,  and to delight
feverishly in snappy comebacks. Development of enthusiasm for benefits, for :
black cigars, for Alec's rose gardens.:
Perhaps he may even take professors
seriously, or succumb to u   malt   of
Eddie's. i
The sophomore. Inability to study, j
a haunting restlessness in dry classes, j
A wild desire to punch the professor's
nose, to kiss the fair girl, front row,
second seat, and shave twice a day.
Sudden appreciation of the sunset, the
view of the ocean, and the Co-op. A
special delight in geology field, Union
discussions, nnd thoughts about life.
A growing impression that the whole
world needs to be  reformed.
The junior. Beginnings of rabid
cynicism. Frantic effort to be seen at
every dance, to wear dirty cords, and
to be president of the honorary. Passionate attachment to a specific table
on a specific side of the library.
Smokes too many cigarettes, reads
too many murder stories, has violent
headaches. Fascination for sorority
teas, dans steps, and track meets.
A longing for a bank account, a check
book, and hair on tho chest.
Tho senior. Nonchalant, reserved,
indifferent. Extremely condescending
to underclassmen, pet hobby—sleeping in class. Sudden desire to be
"the well dressed man." Driving
sedans, wearing the fraternity pin,
affinity for collecting old text books.
Well groomed, a distinct feeling of
being old and ancient and educated.
Preference I'm' I'Uim haired women,
pipes,   and   green   fountain   pens.
Women. Constantly changing hair
arrangement, he'ght of heels and
brand of lip-stick. Smiling at policemen, patting strange cats, chewing
too much Spearmint. Absorbing interest in Co-op tiles, initialed stationery, and young professors. Imbibing
too many "cokes," cutting too many
classes, and possessing a far away
look in the eyes. Inclination to bite
Professors. Proneness to long lectures, witty stories, and irrelevant
detail. Dismissing classes early and
cutting office hours. Writing books,
observing Wednesday song days,
springing tests. Abruptness, inability to look one in the eye, forgetting
to assign advance lesson, Reading
the Daily H'-uin, sponsoring dances,
indulging in strawberry ice cream.
Dislike for open Funis, curly hair and
moustaches. Having "that tired feeling,"

The commencement of a new
column should, I am told, be an
occasion of befitting brilliance.
The idea seems to be to give
the venturesome reader a taste
of wit, philoBophyy and soft
soap of such agreeableneus that
he will wade through day after
day of mediocrity in the hope
of having the dose repeated.
This is what I intended to do,
but by the time I reached this
point on the paper I discovered
that it was too late. The column hus already begun. The
ideal of this column—even a
columnist has ideals—is contained in quatrain from Omar
But leave the wise to
wrangle, and with me
The Quarrel of the Universe let be:
And, in some corner of the
Hubbub coucht,
Make Game of that which
makes as much of Thee.

In explanation of the title of
this column and also out of the
humane desire to prevent some
innocent local scribe from being

may state that I am a Grad—

as the Unhappy Job-hunting

What are the Wild Walls Saying?
Echoes    of    the    Vanished
Passed ?
Much as I admire my friend
Mr. Hutchison, I nevertheless
cannot overlook his little message to the Frosh appearing
in the revamped handbook.
Even ignoring his insinuation
that the seniors are trying to
keep secret their pride in the
University, I feel that he is going too far in assuming that the
freshmen are completely devoid
of  brains.
I doubt if even the president
of the Alma Mater Society can
convince the feeblest freshman
that seniors go around whispering "Sully not her name" to the
walls in the hope that one or
more frosh' will appear in time
to catch the echo.
Personally, the only echoes I
have heard along the corridors
are something like this,—
"Haw   haw,   that's   a    good
"Didja ever hear the one about
the     travelling     salesman
who . . ."
"Please are freshmen allowed
in the Cafeteria?"
"And she sez . . and I se/, . . ,"
"and  that  makes live lectures
I've  skipped  this  week,"
"What   is  Thoth?"
"Of all  the dumb clucks that
woman  is the  worst."
"Lend me four bits, will ya '.'"
"This   place   is   a   hell    of    a
"Honor  system—•boloney!"
"Us kids always do our homework right after school."
"C'mon over to our frathouse
and have a go at the roulette wheel."
Ami so on ad nauseam.
The  fact is that that though
the Frosh may be dumb enough
to  believe  most  of  the   things
that  Council  and   the   Faculty
tell  them, even their innocence
will not swallow that little fairy
>tory about listening for echoes.
The only bright    spot    in    the
"mesage" is the slogan it suggests for the freshman patriot.
The ambiguity of that response
should   make   it   acceptable    to
all   tastes.
Let us ko from bad to verse.
The mesage falls on stucco

I  believe it waa  Dean Brock who
I laid such emphasis on Varsity tradl-

sensible suggestion In regard to the
building of traditions: instead of terrorising the Freshmen with lengthy
speeches on the  whyfore of a University degree, and boring them stiff

■ The  list  might be drawn up under
j headings somewhat like this:
The Caf::
i     1.   Learn by heart which are the
fraternity and   sorority   tables,   and
! never under any condition seat yourself at one of these.    It is the one
J sure way of drawing down the ire of
I this class of person upon your head.
j If, owing to ignorance of site of said
! tables, you must stand for an hour,
| stand.   It pays in the end.
{    2.    Know, and partake of the ideal
j lunch for an undergrad—four peanut-
| butter sandwiches and a half pint of
; milk.
The Quad:
1.   When  feeling  lost and   lonely
between  a  lecture  and the caf, dig
j your hands deeply into your pockets
I and scowl darkly.    A passing prof.
| may mutter "genius," and all will be
The Profs:
1. Know all notorious profs, by
sight as well as by repute.
2. If Dr. Sedgewick should unexpectedly grab your nose or tug your
j ear, never shriek, "Leggo." It is Ill-
mannered. When released, turn to
him your other ear, and regret, with
true humility, that you have no other
The Parking Field:
i 1. At lunch-hour during fine
weather all women students retire to
cats to have their after-dinner cigarette.   In spite of firm opposition from
j authorities, this is becoming the recognized sport of the co-eds.
2. Men students are supposed to
remain in the caf, stretch out their
'. legs and produce their pipes, showing
i their superiority over tne authorities.
The Students:
I 1. Walk the campus with a stationary grin on the face. It saves stretching the facial musceles every step or
2. Know all notorious students by
sight. Be sure and guffaw loudly at
another's expense whenever possible.
Your turn will come.
In (ieneral;
1. Never pass the hus-stand with
an empty car. This is the unpardonable sin.
2. Do not chew so loudly during
lectures that you disturb your neighbour's flow of thoughts, Use self-
3. Never carry frogs or other ob-
; noxious beasts Into the Library.    It
is a place of quiet and repose.
U.S.C. Gives Business Coarse
A regular graduate course in business administration is being given
this fall in the University. The work
ia open to those who bold a bachelor
of science degree in the college of
commerce, or its equivalent. The
course leads to the degree of master
of science.
"The purpose of the graduate
work," Dean Henry F. Grady explained, "is to enable such students
as have already had general training
in the fundamentals of accounting,
statistics and commercial law, and a
more or less advanced training in
some of the fields of applied economies, to secure aii intimate contact with
and a broader understanding of the

In the passing of Denis Lane
Kirby at Ocean Falls in August
the University loses a potentially great student. In view of his
achievements in scholarship and
athletics at ho early a stage as
the completion of the Freshman
year it is not too much to say
that he was of Rhodes Scholarship calibre. That is the highest compliment a man's excellence can command.
Denis won the Governor-
General's medal for leading the
Province in the Junior Matriculation examinations, Last
year at the Unlveralty he won
flrst place among flrst year stu*
dents. These scholastic triumphs are well known. Not ho
well known are the sterling
qualities which characterized
Denis as a friend. We, who
knew him, appreciated him more
for these human traits than for
the more dazzling accomplishments recorded in newspapers,
and it is here that we feel his
loss most keenly.
The "Ubyssey" offers its
sincere sympathy to the bereaved pnrentH. They may be
assured that the memory of
Denis Kirby will continue to be
honored at the University of
British Columbia by professors
and students alike.

A tragic accident at Camp
Borden in June claimed the life
of Edwin W. Sorensen of New
Westminster. He was a mem*
ber of Science '33. With a good
scholastic record behind him he
appeared to have bright prospects of a successful engineering career.
The two aeroplanes, the one
ascending, the other descending,
collided some 20 feet from the
ground and crashed. In so short
a distance parachutes were of
no use.
Edwin had many friends in
the University and his loss will
be keenly felt. The "Ubyssey"
is very sorry to record his passing.

New Business Manager
To Be Appointed
The Students' Council announces that
The Executive of the Players' Club
announces that the last day for applications for membership will lie Wednesday, ()etol>er 1st. Applications may be
placed in a box loft at the Players' Club
Not ice--Board. On the Thursday following there will lie a meeting in tlie Auditorium, when pr.rls will be assigned and
the application fee of twenty-live cents
collected. The try-outs will lie held on
Tuesday and Wednesday of the following
Applications for iiii'iiiltership on technical grounds must be by formal letters
of application, accompanied by the fee
of twenty-five cents, Ten of these "technical nieuibeis" may l>c admitted, and
will be interviewed two days after closing
date. The technical memberships are
an innovation introduced for the first
time. Members thus admitted do not
try out in tlie regular way, but aro engaged iu activities such as advertising,
business, costuming, pro|X'rtios, scenery
and lighting. They will not lie iierinittcd
to try out for parts iu the Christmas
plays, although parts in the Spring play
will be open to liiein, and there are ojien-
inys in costume work and scenery for
the most abio of these new members to
go on the Spring tour. Thoy will be expected, declares tlio Executive, to work
for tho privilege of full membership, and
will have much practice in their chosen
lines, under the direction of older members.
Those who went on the Spring tour
with "Friend Hannah" report a successful season with few mishaps. The
houses were generally good, especially at
Summerland, where the entire town
turned out to see one of its young proteges,
taking tho role of an aged Quaker. Pen-
ticton was the lowest point in the trip
as far as audiences were concerned. The
company, it is reported, had an exciting
time during their Powell River performance. Owing to losv tides, the boat
from Comox, which usually loft at two-
thirty, did not rcacli dock there until
nearly four. Consequently the company
arrived at Powell River at eight-twenty-
five, the curtain being scheduled to rise
at eight-fifteen, With the resourcefulness of good troupers, they donned costumes and make-up on the boat, in spite
of the fact that a fairly heavy sea was
running and some few of the cast were
somewhat under the weather. There
was a rush to the hall, when an audience
waited for something over an hour while
the stage manager and Ins crew hastily
converted a built-in interior set into
the "English country garden" in which
the play ojums. Followed a performance
which exceeded even the high standards
set by the cast, and the audience went
home happy and satisfied.
The choice of plays for Christmas and
Spring has not yet been made. As usual,
the club plans to put on four short play*
at Christmas, when new talent will have
a chance to display itself. One of these,
it is hoped, will be the work of an undergraduate, winner of the yearly contest
mentioned elsewhere in this issue. In
tlie Spring the play will lie a single three-
act drama, chosen'by the advisory board
of the Players' Club out of a large number of scripts.
New members will be welcomed warmly, the Executive concludes, though they
will have to earn their spurs. The
('layers' (Tub offers many opportunities
Ar artistic work in all lines, and interested
students, new and old, are invitud to
take advantage of them.
Due to the resignation of Doug.
Pollock as President of the
Men's Undergraduate Society,
an election for this office will
take place on Tuesday, October
7. Nominations close on Sep-

Interest in its Valedictory Gift
Project in the collection of records
and relics of British Columbia has
been aroused in many parts of the
province by members of the Class of
Arts '31. During the summer an informative circular letter was sent to
every member of the class. A special
article describing the work of the
Committee appeared in the Feature
Section of the Vancouver Sunday
Province. Full details of the extent
of the materials gnthercd during the
summer are not yet available, but it
has heen suggested that the Committee again hold an exhibition in the
Library as was done last year.
A most interesting part of the
Valedictory Gift promises to he the
Hook Collection. As a result of the
splendid response to the Committee's
request last April, a sum of more
I nan $100 was made available for the
purchase of hooks on British Columbia
and Canadian History. This amount
has been entrusted to Mr. tt. L. Reid,
K.C., a member of the Honorary Committee actively assisting in the Valedictory Gift Project.

The Soccer Club is with us again,
more enthusiastic than ever. Its efforts last year met with due success
for at the close.of the season the club
was promoted to the Second Division
of the Vancouver and District League
to regain the place it lost two years
The management of the club was
busy all during the summer and practices commenced early In August.
The executive has thus fulfilled its
promise to lift the team to second
division status. Perhaps this year
the boys will enter First Division once
more.   Who knows?

Inl founding a training camp at
Bowen Island this year the Canadian
Rugby Club has instituted a tradition
at Varsity and accomplished something never attempted by another
athletic organization on the campus.
An attendance of thirty-five at preseason practices speaks volumes for
the success of the venture while according to skipper Sandy Smith the
boys are just about where they were
when they won the Western Canadian Inter-Collegiate rugby Championship last fail. Whatever the outcome
of the game next Monday we can he
assured that the famous Tigers will
have to fight every inch of the way
and we wish the Club all the success
it deserves for its splendid  work.

of athletics in University life, ut the

Freshmen Enthusiasts Swamp
Soccer Squads
Hordes of freshmen greeted the call of
Tommy Sanderson, vtirsitv soccer mentor,
at the initial jiructices of the round ball
enthusiasts this week.
The forward line, ever the weak spot,
will be well stocked this yonr, since most
of tbe new-comers seem determii ed to
make their mink in tie van.
The senior team, promoted to ihe
second division of tho Vancouver nnd
District League is returning practically
en bloc and needs only a centre half and
two inside forwards. Koyoolia, a freshman, is a candidate for the pivot |tosition
while it is still likely that Vern. Wright
will return.
For the vacant forward positions, thero
are several promising men. As things
stand, Hroadhuret from Trail will most
likely lead the line in the first game, a
week Saturday, alt hough Costain, another freshman is shapinf* up well. Smith
of hist year's juniors will be trying out
against "Bunny Wright" for outside
right. The return of Alan Todd solves
the inside left diflicultv and with Cooke
on the wing, the combination will take
some halting.
The Juniors, under the direction of
Miles Ritchie will swing into action tomorrow against A. Y. P. A. at Dunbar
Park. Selection of the team caused
something of a problem with such men
as Cunningham, Cox, Mundie, Fletcher
and Dave and Laurie Todd turning out
The following eleven was finally decided
upon to wear the (lold and Blue in the
opener: Cloumerriouk, Smith, Vollans,
White, Koyoolia, Dickson, Smith, Cox,
