SUCCESSFUL
BADMINTON
^TOURNAMENT
Miss V. Millener and 0. Woodman
Cany Off Honors
The annual tournament of the Badminton Club came to a successful conclusion last Monday night when the
finals were played at King Edward
gym. The tournament, which marks
the culmination of the year's activities, has been a complete success.
That it has been so is to be credited
to the efforts of the executive and the
tournament committee.
The matches were very closely contested, and provided many thrills to
a good-sized gallery. The feature of
the evening was the playing of O.
Woodman and Miss V. Millener. Both
of these players won the three events
in which they were entered. They
are members of the team sent to Victoria at the Annual Trip and have
also played in the city inter-club
matches.
The   first   match   of  the   evening
brought .together Miss   Millener  and
Miss Davidson in the Ladies' Singles.
After two hard games Miss Millener

Misses Lillian Wilson and Beth
Abernethy to Take Part in
Artistic Program
Those interested in TJ. B. C. activities, and especially in the work of the
Musical Society, will be pleased to
know that the concert given by the
Orchestra over the "Province" radio
last Wednesday evening was considered one of the best ever broadcast
from a Vancouver station, and certainly the best without exception in
its line. We quote a comment which
appeared in the "Province" of Thursday,  February  21:—
"An unusually large number of
music-lovers telephoned to express
their appreciation of the concert
broadcast from station CKCD on Wednesday evening by the University
Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Mr. Wilbur G. Grant."
"Much credit must be given Mr.
Grant for the high standard of excellence he has developed in this student organization, which in the rendering of the "Light Cavalry Overture"
and MacBeth's "Forget-Me-Not" eclipsed the finish and understanding usually associated with many orchestras
of professional standing."
With such high praise as this from
disinterested critics we are confident
that the grand concert to be presented in Wesley Church on Friday,
March 7, will eclipse any similar of-'
fering ever before given by any am-

Above is a picture of Bill Phillips,
(Science '26), the aggressive hard
working Captain of the Varsity first
soccer eleven that will meet Saint
Andrews in the feature match of the
season on Saturday, the semi-finals of
the Mainland Cup. The Varsity skipper is confident that the University's
largest trophy will stay at U. B. C.
again this year.
But the defeating of the league-
leading Saints will be no easy matter,
and the soccer team needs the support of every Varsity student when the
teams hook up at Athletic Park on
.Saturday. The Scotsmen represent
the class of the first division and have
never been beaten so far this year.
It's when a team is battling against
such opposition as this that it needs
support. It's up to everybody to turn
out to this game on Saturday—let's
?o!
Another important reason why Varsity students should go to the game
on Saturday is that about half of the
money taken in at the gate will, indirectly, go to the campaign fund.
Because after referee and ground expenses, etc., are paid the clubs split
fifty-fifty and the management of the
soccer team will turn in their proceeds at the end of the year to the
fund. So that you will benefit the
campaign as well as yourself if
you take in Saturdays' game. A record crowd is expected at the fifth
avenue lot, as it is generally conceded that the winner of this game
will win the Mainland Cup.
ANOTHER CLINCHING REASON
WHY STUDENTS SHOULD GO TO
THE GAME IS THAT THE HEINZ
BAND WILL BE THERE.   Tuum Est.
Arts '25 won the Arts '20 relay race yesterday afternoon.
The race was the closest for
years, Agriculture and the winners fighting all the way. The
team was composed of E. Was-
son, J. Craig, H. Thompson, N.
Arkley, S. Arkley, A. Hemingway, E. Forster, L- McKillop.
The time was 37 minutes, 17
seconds.
IMPORTANT EVENTS PLANNED
TjTRAISE CAMPAIGN FUNDS
Rugby Club, Alumni and Basketball Club Will Stage
Functions In Near Future
RUGBY   DANCE
On Saturday evening the Rugby
club is doing its share in the CAMPAIGN by staging a dance in the auditorium. Tickets are now on sale at
the rate of $1.50 a couple. A limited
number are being sold, so it will be
best to get one early.
The festivities will commence at
8.30 and keep going until midnight.
Buchanan's orchestra has been engaged, and those who know it say
that it can put pep and punch into
any dance. This is one way of helping the CAMPAIGN where everyone
can have a really good time, and the
Rugby boys are to be congratulated on
their move.
Remember the time, the place, and
the price—Saturday, at 8:30 in the
auditorium:    A dollar and a half.
City  Swimmers
^/Defeat Varsity
University   Aquaducks   Lose   By
Four Point Margin
The Vancouver Amateur Swimming
Club defeated the Varsity Club by a
four-point margin in ^the~~dual meet
at Chalmers tank on Wednesday evening. The races were keenly contested and excellent time was made
in all the events. In both the men's
backstroke and 200 yards, free styie,
races the finishes were so close that
the first and second men were reaching for the end rail at the same time.
The spectators were keenly interested in the outcome of the ladies' plunge
for distance, as both Miss Helen
Gough of the V. A. S. C. and Miss
Joan Gilley of U. B. C. made the
length of the tank after Miss Gough
had already reached the forty-seven-
foot mark. Miss Gough won by making the fifty feet in 45 seconds. In
the men's plunge, Alan Stewardson of
Varsity made the remarkable time of
20 seconds.
The men's relay race was fast and
furious. At the end of the third lap
the teams were tied, and it was McKechnie who gave the Collegians the
points when he beat Cameron by a
fraction of a foot. The time was 1.17
2-5. In the ladies' relay, the V. A.
S. C. beat Varsity handily in 1.32.
The results are as follows: 50-yard
free style, men; McDonald, Varsity;
Stewardson, Varsity; Roberts, V. A.
S. C. Time, 30 seconds. Women,
Lillian Broadfoot, V. A. S. C; Rettie

CEILIDH
The Alumni are doing their share
in *he CAMPAIGN by holding a grand
"C :iLIDH" at the U buildings on
March 21, 8.30-1.00. The word Ceilidh
is Gaelic and means spree or jolifica-
tion—it is pronounced Caylee. Air
the buildings will be used and the
various events will take place simultaneously. There will be bridge, dancing (a "jitney" dance) Mah Jong, Fortune Telling, a Chamber of Scientific
Wonders, a cabaret, a minstrel show,
a one-act play, shooting-gallery, waltz
competitions, etc. Every effort is being made to make all events snappy.
Various glee clubs and orchestra have
promised to assist.
More will be disclosed next week
about this event. Meanwhile, remember to save the date, Friday, March
21, and also the necessary money for
it. University students will have
special privileges at this affair, such
as lower prices than the public, and
as it is being run for their CAMPAIGN
it is up to them to give it their heartiest support.
BASKETBALL  DANCE
The Normal Gymnasium on Thursday night will be the scene of some
of the most interesting events of the
college year. There will be three
basketball games to be followed by a
big dance commencing at ten o'clock.
The games start at 7 p.m., the Senior
B men and the Senior A women playing first. In past years the women
have treated the men very roughly
j.nd the men are anxious to get back
at their old rivals.
The annual Student Council—Faculty tussle will come next. Both the
Students' Council and the profs can
boast of some fast men, but the bets
favor the profs as their teamwork is
said to be practically perfect. Of the
four events scheduled for the evening
this is the only one where much
roughness is expected.
The Senior A will meet Chalmers
Adanacs in an exhibition game, which
promises to be one of the best of the
season. Dancing will commence at
ten o'clock and will finish an enjoyable evening. The proceeds of the
games will go to the Campaign fund.
Tonight in jfefie Normal Gym, everybody out.
Commenced
brk at Point Grey
Arts '25 conscripted several of its
men last Saturday to commence the
breaking of the ground for the playing fields at Point Grey, and under
the direct supervision of Wally Shore
accomplished a great deal. Tiny
Gwyther and Cyril Jones were those
to whom Wally looked for information regarding the location of the job,
and after they plotted out almost ten
pieces of land on which to work they

^ Splendid Lecture
That the Chinese consider us as uncivilized and eccentric as we, in turn,
consider them, was the startling Vtate-
ment made by Dean R. W.yBrock,
head of the faculty of Applied Science,
in an able lecture before the Vancouver Institute last Thursday evening.
Because their ancestors had reached
a high state of civilization in art, religion, and even some branches of
science, when the white race wtre
still savages, the Chinese people were
inclined to look down upon our social
condition, he stated. They consider
our great interest in science and our
marked individuality in art as nothing
but the eccentricities of a semi-barbarous race.
This was but one of many thought-
provoking statements in the Dean's
address on the life, habits and customs
of the Chinese people as they appear
to an Occidental traveller.
Views taken during Dean Brock'.s
journeys through Hong Kong, Shanghai, Canton and other Chinese cities
illustrated  the  lecture.
The social status of women, the religion and morals, the architecture
and music, and the history of the
Chinese peoples were all discussed in
an entertaining manner.
The differences in the various spoken dialects were compared and the
written forms of their language a"bly
and clearly explained.
IflRASS HOCKEY CLUB
They were great games! It's too
bad nobody saw them. The first took
place on Wednesday,_February 20, at
the Heather Street grounds when the
men's grass hockey team trimmed the
women with a score of 5-0. It poured
rain during the whole game, and the
grounds were in a gloriously greasy
condition which caused a good deal
of spectacular action.
The second was played on Saturday,
February 23, at the R. C. M. P.
grounds. This time a.team from Varsity beat the Auroras 3-1 in a game
of mixed hocEeT The match was
followed by afternoon tea, after which
everyone went home feeling that it
was an afternoon well spent.
^   ORATORICAL TRYOUTS
Considerable interest was evinced in
the Preliminary try-outs for the Men's
Oratorical Contest held last Friday
afternoon. The successful competitors
were Eric Dunn, Walter Hodgson,
Hozumi Yonemura, Wilfred Kelly,
Manghat Singh, and Harold Cantelon.
These students have been selected to
speak in the finals of the Oratorical
Contest to be held in the University
Auditorium on Wednesday evening,
March 12.
Dr. W. L. MacDonald and Lome
Morgan judged the tryouts.

Tickets for Play
.On Sale Next Monday
On Monday next, the exchange tickets for "The World and His Wife"
will be on sale here and may be purchased from any member of the Players' Club. These may be sent by mail
to the Orpheum Box Office or left
there personally. Seats will be assigned in the order in which they are
received at the Orpheum. If the purchaser wants seat coupons returned
to him he must enclose a self-addressed envelope in which they will be forwarded on the day the Box Office sale
opens, otherwise they will be 'held till
they are called for on day sale begins.
It is very important that each purchaser mark on his tickets whether he
wants seats for Monday or Tuesday
night, or whether it is immaterial.
Prices have not been increased, although expenses for" new scenery,
theatre rental and other incidentals
are considerably greater than in past
years. The entire Orchestra floor and
the first five rows of the balcony are
$1.00. The remaining rows in the
balcony are 75 cents, and the first
three rows in the gallery are 50 cents.
The remainder of the gallery will be
sold as rush seats at 25 cents. As
the general public usually buys up the
higher-priced seats, many students
will find it to their advantage to try
seats in the gallery, for there, according to reliable authority, both seeing
and hearing are the best in the house.
So students (and faculty too) may
well patronize the gods, and pass on
their superfluous cash to give another
boost to the good old CAMPAIGN.

Cop Two Fast Games
The senioV A girls won a close game
on Saturday-night when they defeated
the G. W.JV. A. girls 8-7. The game
was a very cT5Se one and hard checking was a dominant feature of/it.
The game between the Senior B
girls and the Normals was al&e-^very
e*eBr~~Varsity winning 14—13. The
Senior B's had the edge in the first
half but the Normal girls rallied in
the second and put up a hard fight.
The B's lost, however, on Saturday
night to the Adanacs. The score was
14-7.
The  Teams—
Senior A—"Patsy" Robinson, Doris

tffJNIOR GIRLS WIN SHIELD
For the third time the Women in
Arts '25 hold the Interclass Debating
Shield—this year, though, it is by default. It has been impossible for the
women of Arts '27 to meet the Juniors, because of the illness of one of
their debaters and the resulting increased pressure of work. Arts '25
was to have been represented by Miss
Helen MacGill and Miss Phyllis Gregory, who debated for the class on one
occasion last year, and who were this
year to follow up the advantage of
Miss Elsie Rilance and - Miss Vera
Mather, who defeated the women of
Ats '24 last fall. Miss Nan Hodgkiss
and Miss Helen Fowler were to have
been the spokesmen for the Freshmen.
League of Nations
Lecture Tomorrow
The next League of Nations lecture will be given in the auditorium
tomorrow (Friday) at 12.05 noon. Mr.
Tom Richardson, ex M.P. will speak
on "Labor and the League." Mr. Richardson was a member of the House of
Commons for eight years. Since coming to Canada he has kept in close
communication with some of the men
who are now responsible for Britain's
foreign policy. Besides that, he has
been making a careful study of the
work of the International Labor Bureau at Geneva. Tomorrow's lecture
will be especially well-documented.
Students who wish to make sure of
hearing this forceful and eloquent
speaker before he returns to the old
country should make it a point to
be present. Mr. Lome Morgan, Varsity's invincible International Debater, will occupy the chair.

The Senior"AJl_pop squad met and

Gym last Saturday evening. The final
score was 38-22. The Ex-Normal
team was composed of four Boyes'
brothers and Dan McKenzie. This
aggregation put up a fine game but
were unable to keep pace with the
Varsity men who were all in excellent
form. During the first half the play
was about even, though the Varsity
men were shooting better than their
opponents, and the half ended with
the Collegians leading 18 to 12. Toward the end of the second half Varsity got away in great style and drew
away from their opponents, leaving
the final score at 38-22. The game was
one of the fastest and certainly the
cleanest exhibition given by senior
teams this season. Not once during
the contest did Referee Yeo have occasion to award a free throw.

activity must each contribute something to the fulfilment of their official
duties. In the case of the President
of the Alma Mater the demands of
the position and the personal sacrifices involved are especially great.
This position requires a man of broad
outlook coupled with a ready grasp
of detail and sound judgment. The
handicaps with which he has to contend are manifold. The mass of detail and the routine business which
must be attended to personally by
him is not only irksome but naturally hampers the execution of general
and far-reaching policies. Though a
great honor is doubtless conferred
upon the man chosen to fill the position yet it must be remembered that
this honor is achieved at the expense
of many others which may be of more
direct and permanent value.

,fV   REFERENCE BOOKS
2very year the same problems come
up with regard to reference books, and
no doubt it will continue to come up
until certain University students have
adopted a somewhat stricter code of
morals. The practice of marking up
reference books by underlining passages or making comments in the margin, etc., is both unwarranted and unjustified. When using reference books
students should bear in mind that
these books do not belong to them but
to the University library, or even to
professors who have been kind enough
to loan their own volumes for common
use. Disfiguring the books Is a very
poor way of showing appreciation. As
there is absolutely no necessity for
this practice, however, we feel that it
will be sufficient to bring the matter
to the attention of the students.
The other practice is of a more serious nature, and is a constant source
of annoyance to the majority of the
students of the University. Reference
books have a tendency to disappear
from the shelf, just at a time when
they are in special demand for essay
work or examination, and in this way
the contemptible action of a few students holds up all the others who have
to use the same books. This is clearly
not fair play, but as there are no definite means of making the students
return these books, we would ask them
to abandon the selfish attitude they
have hitherto assumed, and to consider others as well as themselves.
X
ELECTIONS
It is imperative that the importance
"of the coming elections be realized by
the student body. The personnel of
the Students' Council for next year
will then be determined and it is
absolutely necessary that the trustworthiness and general qualifications
of those appointed should be considered before the election. If this were
always done the possibility of friction between the Council and the students would be practically eliminated.
The knowledge that students occupying positions of responsibility have
been chosen only after careful consideration of their fitness for office
would create that feeling of confidence
in the policies suggested that is so
vital to effective self-government.
The sacrifices demanded of students accepting the responsibilities of
office also deserve some consideration. There can be no doubt that the
various interests of these students
must suffer. Their, academic standing, athletic achievements, and social
CAMPAIGN   FROLICS.
Shoe shining, manicuring, hairdress-
ing, fortune telling, and begging are
all courses which have been added to
the University curriculum within the
past week or so. Students taking
these courses have found them so profitable that they are beginning to wonder if, when the money necessary for
the CAMPAIGN has been secured, it
would not be well to "carry on" and
raise sufficient funds to carry them
through next year while they are at it.
There is no doubt that such a vocation would be a great deal easier and
more pleasant than working in a cannery, a mill, or even a department
store. We feel sure that there are a
number of students who have never
before realized what a pleasant task
cleaning other shoes than your own
is, and we fully expect to see a number of the Heinz outfit working at the
various stands throughout the city
next summer.
But, joking aside, we feel sure that
the students, both those doing the dirty work and those having it done to
them, are to be commended upon the
spirit with which they have entered
into the thing. It has been a combination of seriousness and fooling which
augurs well for the CAMPAIGN both
financially and—and—well, otherwise.
EFFECTIVE   BEGGING
In appreciating the work of the students for the CAMPAIGN, it should
not be forgotten to praise the Beggar
who did such noble work in front of
the Arts Building. The Beggar, in
picturesque attire, squatted in the
main entrance, playing a mouth organ. Presumably his melodies melted
the hearts of the students, since it is
whispered that a good round sum was
collected.
CAMPAIGN   STUFF   INCOGNITO
Dear Editor:
I am an outsider and have nothing
to do with your University, but upon
different occasions I have heard the
criticism passed that it was a rich
man's instiution. Now although I
know very little of your University, I
am going to relate a little thing that
happened the other day, which will,
I think, prove that all statements to
this effect are utterly unwarranted.
Yesterday I had occasion to go up
to your college. The first thing I saw
was a number of poor students in front
of the Arts Building cleaning shoes.
It was, I have been told, the onl> way
the poor fellows had of working their
way through University. A little farther over were a number of poor
young ladies pairing finger nails. I
started into the entrance of the Arts
Building and there in front of me was
one poor student, all in rags, playing
upon a mouth organ and begging
piteously for money. Begging, It
seems, was the only way he had "of
working his way through." I am sure
Mr. Editor that after seeing these
sights, no one would have the heart
or the convicition to call your Uni-
versity a rich man's institution.

decided that the Juniors should have
the worst.
Swinging a mattock and handling a
Shovel proved to be a delightful pastime when it was announced that
some of the women had arrived to
cook a bean feed for the noon meal.
Bread and butter, beans, coffee, jam,
and then more beans, formed the
inenu which was served by the snappy waitresses from the year.
Although it was Saturday the workers broke their union rules and spent
the afternoon on the job removing
stumps, rocks, saplings and logs. They
turned over the soil with the skill of
professionals, and when the blisters
"began to burst their language became
that of the professional logger and
miner. But the women had left for
the city and the rich vocabulary was
wasted on the barren fields and stubborn rocks and stumps of the new
site.

MORE   ABOUT  RELIGION
Editor Ubyssey:
It is most regrettable that the favourable impression which the student body
has recently created in the public eye
by showing its spirit of self-sacrifice
and willingness to dig in, should be dispelled to a very large extent by the disgraceful exhibition which appeared on
last week's Muck-a-Muck page. There
has already been a great deal of adverse
comment outside the University. No
doubt the wanton and vulgar display
was prompted by a sincere desire on the
part ot" its authors to start something,
but it was going too far. It is surprising that the Editorial board should have
permitted such "stuff" to get into print.
Apart from the personal slurs cast upon
many prominent persons about the
college, the sense of decency of most
everyone has been grievously outrayed.
The offenders owe an apology to the
University. Besides, those who think
that hell is a big joke, are very much
mistaken. All who persist in rejecting
Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord will
some day have the reality of hell
brought very forcibly home to them.
Respectfully    yours,
P.   S.J2URTIS,  Arts  '24.
Hillmen Defeat
iy Varsity Firsts
The Varsity first soccer^eleven emerged on the shorTencTof a 2-1 count
at Wilson Park last Saturday when
they stacked up against the South
Hill pigskin artists. The Hillmen
wertT decidedly lucky to come through
with a win as the students had the
run of play, but the losers fell down
badly in their shooting and team work
generally.
The surburbanites drew first blood
after about twenty minutes of play
when Ball headed a fast cross in off
Buckley's head after Mosher had been
drawn out of his goal. Varsity worked hard after this reverse and their
efforts were finally rewarded early In
the second canto when Wilkinson
banged the pill into the rigging and
tied the count. End to end play then
resulted until in the last five minutes
Ernie Hatt sent in a scorcher that
gave Mosher no chance to save. It
was a good shot but he should never
have been allowed the opportunity.
Varsity Line-up—Huestis, Lundie,
Wilkinson, Ternan, Emery, Ledingham, Phillips, Buckley, Crute, Baker,
Mosher, Butler.
U. B. C. Soccerites
(ytie Central Park
Although there were plenty of goals
at Powell Street, there were not
enough to decide the finalists in the
Brunswick Cjjn..XQmpetition, and in
spTteTof overtime the game ended 4-4.
The pace was fast, and Central Park
assumed the offensive at the start,
but U. B. C. broke away, and Gibbs
scored. The next goal was similar,
the Park men making a breakaway to
equalize through their left wing. Varsity pressed and Martin's shot was
neatly tipped over the bar, but the
corner was cleared. However, that
player was rewarded when a back deflected one of his drives into the net.
Fast even play continued till half
time, after which Central Park came
down for a brace of goals in quick
order. Hee Cant took a say in affairs,
and duplicated the feat with two good
efforts. Varsity fought to keep its
lead, but with just four minutes to go,
the Park team tied things up from a
scramble in the goal mouth.
The overtime saw both teams tiring
rapidly, Davidson providing a thrill
when he saved a difficult shot, and
Cant breaking through only to be offside. A fruitless corner for TJ. B. C.
was the only close call.
The Line-up—Davidson; Disney and
Shields; Fanning, Underwood and Gibbard; Martin, Newcombe, Cant, Gibbs
and   Evans.

"FANT/
ASIE"  COMES
TO   THE   ©RPWEUM
The most gorgeous production ever
staged for vaudeville, the premier extravaganza of them all, comes to the
Orpheum next week. It is "The Land
of Fantasie," featuring Mile. Stasia
Ledova, the celebrated operatic ballerina, with W. Wania, Jimmy Lyons
and the Eight English Rockets. This
notable production is a kaleidoscopic
galaxy of dance, music, color and novelty, and will be recalled locally as
the outstanding hit of the last vaudeville season. It brings many imported
features, including the famous Radi-
ana Scene, in which gowns and scenery become a luminous picture of bewildering beauty. George Choos, the
"Zeigfeld of Vaudeville," spent more
than $40,000 on this revue, which offers five glittering scenes, one hundred costumes, many novelty stage effects, and a great company of artists.
Mile. Ledova was premiere ballerina
of the Chicago Grand Opera Co. for
three years. W. Wania is a graduate
of the famous Nijinski dance school of
Russia. The Eight English Rockets
are an octette of extraordinary dancers from London, and Jimmy Lyons
is a well-known vaudeville comedian.
English in origin, the Land of Fantasie was an enormous success on the
other side, and in its present form
eclipses anything of the kind heretofore attempted.
One might think that the balance
of the bill would suffer, but this is
not so. There are several other excellent feature acts, all of which blend
into a splendid vaudeville offering.

emerged victor, 11-5, 13-10.
The men's singles between O.
Woodman and W. Argue provided the
feature of the evening. Woodman
won the first game rather easily, but
the second game was closely contested all the way, Woodman's steadiness
finally overcoming the advantage
Argue had secured by his fast smash
es.    The score was 15-7, 15-11.
Miss Millener and Miss Davidson
won the Ladies' Doubles from Miss
Hallamore and Miss Harvey after a
strenuous three-set match 15-10, 16-17,
15-8.
In the Men s Doubles, Woodman and
Argue defeated Cantelon and Shakespeare in straight sets 15-8, 18-17, 15-0.
The second game was featured by
long rallies and brilliant playing, but
the pace proved too much for the losing team, and the third was run oft
very quickly.
After a hard contest Woodman and
Miss Millener defeated Cantelon and
Miss Davidson in the Mixed Doubles.
The latter tam won the first contest
quite easily, but were beaten in the
next two games, 2-15, 18-13, 15-2.

We, the organized Native Sons of Canada, are deeply impressed with the need of greater unity between the provinces
of our country. We realize that Canada can never become a
great prosperous nation until provincial prejudices, racial antipathies and sectional feeling are washed away in a flood of
patriotism based on and rooted in a Canadian national pride
and sentiment.
We are endeavoring to develop a national pride and devotion to Canada. We ask for your assistance in any way that
you may see fit to render it. There are thirty-two branches of

Run their appointed course among the

Impatient    chafe,    by    rocky    fetters
bound.
Faint wisps of cloud adorn the silent
sky,
Display    fantastic    shapes    and   fade
away.

beach,
The fitful flames now leap, now dully
glow.
Sounds of the night—the river's murmuring song,
Break in upon the stillness—and your
voice,
Low and carressing, murmurs soft to
me.
And over all the glamour of the moon.

Woven in  olden days—and shattered

Science Men Give
V        Enjoyable Dance
Dear Izzie: —
Just a line to tell you about the
dance last night. You know we have
to hand it to the Science boys; they
really can give sure-fire dances (hot-
stuff, of course). The sale of tickets
was restricted, which kept the affair
from being a four-hour scrum, and I
came home with only half the usual
number of digs on my insteps and
heels.
Because of the donation of $100.00
to the Campaign, we felt beforehand
that perhaps something would be lacking. Believe me, such was not the
case. The refreshments were plentiful and easy to eat; the punch was excellent, and those four hundred balloons were all that were needed to
make Lester's look the best ever. After supper those balloons just seemed
to be wafted down to the ground without human aid, and I was quite bewildered until a nice Science man with
whom I was hopping, murmured an
explanation about copper wire, beeswax and electric current.
Everybody admired the lovely big
electrical sign which the engineers
had made. It had "U.B.C." and "Science" in big, red letters, with a "Splendor Sine Occasu" background.
Mrs. Klinck, Miss Bollert, Mrs.
Brock, Mrs. Davidson and Mrs. Ducker-
ing were patronesses. Those of the
faculty who were present seemed to
be having a wonderful time, perhaps
because they were the only ones
whose balloons were intact throughout the evening. Why were they?
Leaving this question with you, I'll
saw off till next week.
Yours,
LIZZIE.

Some people object strenuously to
a University training on the grounds
that it makes a man impracticable,
that his ideas become theoretical, and
that he is made thereby wholly un-
suited for the trials and tribulations
of the business world without. The
Campaign which is now being so
urgently conducted is not only proving that college men and women have
real organizing and executive ability,
but is helping to annul that age old
prejudice. It is also gratifying to
know that the Campaign has brought
to light new fields of endeavour before the eyes of ambitious students,
and erstwhile professional college
men and women will now be seen in
the more engaging and practical roles
of shoe blacks, manicurists, fortune
tellers and .tonsorial artists.

LATEST U. B. C. METHODS OF
/
EXTRACTING PRECIOUS STONES
(By Cy. Anide, K.C.N.)
onsiderable interest has recently
been aroused in the methods employed at the University of B. C. for the
extraction of silver, copper and gold.
It is therefore thought that a summary of preliminary development and
operations might prove of general interest.
Prior to 1922-23 attention was centered at odd intervals round the possibilities of operation at Point Grey.
In the main, however, such interest
was purely speculative, and it was not
until the date mentioned that public
and political sympathy was aroused
sufficiently for operations to assume
any definite form.
The proposed development can
roughly be classed under the heading
of "mental" and "physical," and it is
with the latter that the present summary deals.
A mill site was set apart, and it
was decided to erect a reduction
works x so that the whole plant when
finished might be thoroughly up-to-
date.
In order successfully to finance the
project it was of course necessary to
determine the existence of suitable ore
bodies carrying the required metals in
economically recoverable amounts.
In the autumn of 1923 the lower
mainland was subjected to intensive
prospecting and several promising
finds were made. Early in 1924 it
was decided to commence operations
on a small property lying between
Laurel and Willow Creeks, and situated half a mile south of their junction with False Creek.
Geological investigation had proved
the existence of a small ore body of
irregular shape, carrying copper and
silver with a trace of gold, and
thought to have a total value of about
$10,000.00. All three metals were in
a highly altered state, and confined
mainly to pockets. Their occurrence
was therefore decidedly spotty, but examination under the microscope revealed that this last was in no way
connected with certain outbreaks of
smallpox. The richest ground proved
was found to exist just west of Willow Creek, and there was a decided
falling off in values toward the northwest corner of the property.
A noteworthy decision was made
when, in considering the means to be
employed in mining, it was decided to
ban all underhand methods and adopt
the principle of glory-holing, which it
was thought would also increase publicity.
The methods, too, which are being
employed to extract the metals from
the mined ore indicate considerable
originality.
P. Barr, after intensive work on ore
from a high-grade deposit, developed
the cellulose-graphitic method, which
produced excellent results, yielding in
some cases 100% recovery.
R. Hedley and associated engineers,
in experimenting at the Muckers' Hop
Claim, obtained a good return by altering the feed.
The 2 in 1 method adopted by J.
Sills & Co. is producing brilliant results.
The Department of Nursing developed a sweet idea resulting in the deposition of silver—the sugar going into solution.
Under celestial guidance the old
method of clipping has been revived,
and it is hoped that once through the
experimental stage will prove of economic importance.
Space unfortunately prohibits a summary of the beauty method, but its results will be watched with great interest.
The Faculty has also been active,
their work being along lines already
well established.
Though the above is only a summary, it is felt by the writer that operations commenced so successfully can
safely be left without the immediate
necessity of further boring (by him).
It is however suggested that a careful
selection of approved methods might
yield an excellent recovery if applied
it Hastings and Queens Park in August or September.
Dean Coleman Gives
Address tcvS. C. M.
Dean Coleman's lecture, "Psychology and Christianity," which was to
be given at the S. C. M. conference
and was postponed, was held last Monday noon in Room Z. Mr. Stuart
Allen acted as Chairman.
Dean Coleman maintained that
Psychology has had a great influence
on Christianity and that its teachings
have done much to support it. He
pointed out that many religious views
are sustained and strengthened by the
doctrines of Psychology. "This," he
said, "is being emphasized by the recent discoveries in the other sciences." He also spoke of the Atonement
and as a means of illustration he outlined the two views—the legalistic
view, and the influence of character
view.
At the close of his talk, the speaker
gave those assembled an opportunity
of asking questions and this led to
some very interesting discussion.

EMPRESS    THEATRE
The Allen Players at the Empress
theatre are creating quite a furore by
the series of plays that are being
staged at this house.
Never in the history of this playhouse has there been such a demand
for seats as has resulted since the
coming of this company to Vancouver.
Miss Verna Felton, the leading
woman, has been acclaimed a genius
in the histrionic art, and her admirers are numbered in the thousands.
The comedy-drama "The Chorus
Lady" is the current week's attraction. It is a story of deep heart-
interest.
As an indication of the up-to-date
methods of the Empress theatre
management, next week's offering will
be a play that has not yet finished
its run in New York. • It is "The
Crooked Square," an exposure of tne
lives of many in high places.
