FRESHMAN NUMBER
REGULATIONS FOR CONDUCT OF
FRESHMAN CUSS OUTLINED
Failure to comply causes immediate punJetunent.
Bounds of Campus defined.
The following regulations have been
drawn up by the Students' Council
pertaining to the conduct of the Fresh-
man Class, and are to be In immediate effect: *
1. All members of the Freshman
Year on the campus, and at all University functions such as dances, etc.,
must wear on the outside of the left
coat sleeve, a band of green ribbon.
2. As this ribbon Is ot regulation
width and shade, new ones must be
obtained from the Council.
3. The Freshmen are required to
keep the permanent playing field In
good condition throughout the academic year.
4. The first year class are required to come to separate stands for
their "Ubysseys." The situation of
these stands will be announced later.
6. Oftly members of the upper
years are allowed to smoke on the
campus. Freshmen are not allowed
to do so.
6. Members of the Freshman Class
are not allowed to sit on steps, curbs
or window-sills In or about the university precincts.
For minor breaches of these regulations, fatigue work, or something of a
similar nature will be Imposed. For
major offences, the powers of the
Council range from exclusion from
social affairs without appeal, to e-i-
the University,
e council makes the  following
Suggestions to the Freshman class,
Which they consider fitting and proper
for the first year students to carry
out:
»  1.   That they give their seats in the
buses to upper-class students, especi
ally to upper class girls.
2. That they maintain the Freshman tradition of turning out to all
the games.
8. That they attend all the Alma
Mater meetings.
Freshmen are not absolutely required to carry out these suggestions
but the Council considers that '20
would form a worthy tradition by so
doing, The Class of '20 is the first
Freshman body at the new U. B. C,
and consequently Its members have an
opportunity that Is given to no other
year to establish worth-while traditions. In the final analysis, It Is traditions and alms that make up university spirit, and it Is In the power
of the Freshmen to broaden and
strengthen this spirit by setting a
good precedent for the Freshmen of
the future to follow.
Campus Boundaries
For the Information of the students
as  a  whole, the  following  are  the
bounds of the campus:
Starting at the north-east corner of
the library, proceed In a straight line
to the south-east cerner of the Science
building; from there due south to a
point 60 yards south of 10th Ave.
from this point proceed in a southwesterly direction to the corner post
at the north-east corner of the orchard; then due west along the fence
to the woods; along the edge of the
woods till a line Is reached running
parallel to the sld alk on the north
side of the auditorium and 60 yards
north of said sidewalk; from there
along this line till It cuts the road east
of the Administration building, and
then direct to the starting point.
Freshmen Suffer
Novel Form Of
Initiation
Initiated Freshettes
Wear Mask of
Courage
Sheiks become laborers for the   Lovely !&diet forced to perform
day. menial labour
The Freshman Initiation, wan of a
most, novel form this vear. Kvery-
thing was quiet, smooth and businesslike. There was a marked absence
of pyjama-clad victims, belligerent
seniors, bonfires, fights, and all the
other reputedly attendant features of
initiation. All this was replaced by
overalls, "drill master" seniors, dust,
stones, dirt, and real honest sweat.
On Saturday morning buses poured
forth a multitude of rough and ready
looking youths carrying dltch-dlgglng
tools, Instead of the usual'string of
sleek sheiks and semi-shelks. Common rooms soon looked like secondhand implement shops.
At 1S.30, all the "greenhorns" were
admitted to the Auditorium. Despite
the reassuring "Hall, Hail, the Gang's
All Here," the roll call showed quite
a number of absentees. After noting
these culprits for "future reference,"
President Tommy Taylor outlined the
plans of work, and then the freshmen
filed out.
A long, double line was made in
front of the Arts Building, and picks,
shovels, and spades were distributed.
The workers were divided Into two
main bodies, one going to each playing field.
Two and a half hours of strenuous
work effected miraculous changes in
the fields Piles of stones and weeds
provenwnt was made in the track.
By 4.80 the poor labourers were nearly exhausted, but a cup of coffee and
"a couple of bites of bread and chicken," served in the botanical gardens,
re-invigorated them Immensely,
dotted their surfaces, and a real lm-
Freshmen and freshettes congregated In the Auditorium, where each
received a green arm-band and a
green-covered handbook. T. Taylor
thanked them for the fine spirit
shown In the work. President Kllnck
(Continued on  Page 2)
Whatever impression the Initiation
may have made upon the freshmen,
it is certain that the freshettes will
take long to recover from it. Those
who have lately been Indulging in
diets will, no doubt, have found to
their delight, that many pounds were
lost during the long hours of anxious
suspense, and the strenuous physical
labour which they underwent.
The courage shown by the freshettes throughout the day was admired
hy all. Long before two o'clock they
adorned themselves in vivid aprons,
and gathered together upon the steps
of the Auditorium. A mad gaiety prevailed, the freshettes evidently following out the advice of the Epicureans.
Some were heard singing "Three
Blind Mice," and "Farmer's In His
Den," while the rest joined In a reckless game of Rlng-around-a-rnsea.
Only now and again the brave mask
dropped from their faces, as stern
prefects hurried In or out of the
building with calm, mysterious smiles.
But when the doors were finally opened, there was a rush tor admission,
»nd seniors were forced to regulate
the speed of entry.
Once Inside, the enthusiasm died
down; whether this was due to tho
loss of their quarters, or the solemn
atmosphere, It is not known, but no
happiness was betrayed hy any freshette. Crouched upon the floor, they
awaited the Inevitable. All eyes were
fixed upon the stage, which was
empty, except for a large wooden box
In the centre, doubtless containing
Instruments of torture. A deathly
silence prevailed, In which seniors
patroted slowly up and down the
aisles. Pictures were taken of the
condemned, who, occasionally, cast
frightened glances at the windows, to
make sure that this was Indeed the
kindly Alma Mater who had once
(Continued on Page 2)
Should Initiation Go ?
(An Editorial)
tided by a spirit of good-humor and willingness on the part of
First Year students, the opening part of this year's initiation programme
has been very successfully carried out. The number or shirkers was
so small as to be negligible.
The popularity ol the new "wrinkle" was due chiefly to its utilitarian character. The work done by the Freshmen was necessary and
was done In the logical way. Though or a more transient nature,
the effect of the Freshettes' labor lasted long enough to impress Sunday
visitors and to call forth praises from the raculty, Monday morning.
That part of the Initiation programme which Is to remain in operation until next spring is, however, of less practical, more formal nature,
The wearing of ribbons marks out the class of '29, it is true, and,
by devious effects, is no doubt serving to engender "class spirit." But
this much-adjured vagueness is, as many students are beginning to
realize, a dubious acquisition. Sometime*, ne is the present case with
at least one of the upper years In Arts, it is gained at the expense of
a larger "alma mater spirit," the situation being a miniature dramatization of nationalism vs. Internationalism.
Apart from the axiom that "experience demands deference"—which,
applied to initiation, Is at best a superficial explanation and never a
Justification—there Is but one thing to be said to commend the ruling
that Frosh be debarred from sitting on steps, It Is that first year students are naturally poorer Judges of the maximum time they can give
to loitering. Any ruling, therefore, tending to lessen their opportunity
for wasting time Is to their own good. A like reason commends the
curtailment of Freshmen smoking privileges.
The proposed "fussing restriction" was the one clause essentially
foolish and Impossible of enforcement, It was not unanlmouly approved
by the Council and has been withdrawn after the taking of a straw
vote among upper class men.
On the other hand, entrusting the care of a playing field to the
First Year, Is an excellent Idea. It Is a work suited to the energies of
a class as a whole, and, as members of '29 cannot be expected to launch
a suitable class activity on their Initiative, It 1b well to point out to
them at least one of the ways they can serve their alma mater.
The restrictions that stand are, therefore, we think, as justifiable
as any that could be discussed under an Initiation programme. But
the larger question has been raised this year, and will continue to be
raised until definitely faced and settled by a Student Council—Is Initiation itself, in whatever form, justifiable? Is it not a mediaeval Idea,
dead for our purposes and demanding Immediate, If Christian burial?
Though heartily supporting the carrying out of the 1926-26 Initiation programme, the Ubyssey takes the stand that this should be the
last,    In the future, Initiation should be completely abolished.
Putting aside sentimental fallacies and snobbish prejudices, and
looking the problem straight in the face, every one of us knows that
there is not one real reason for initiation. Any custom which marks
out a section of the undergraduate body and curtails its liberty, not
tor city collective or Individual sin committed, bill for the mere fact
ihiil that section Is a new arrival In I'nlversliy lite, is ethically  unsound.
First Year students pay in a hundred ways, el necessity, lor their
lack of experience. Why elaborate a series of regulations to exact
further   toll?
Manitoba litis this year abolished Initiation. Other colleges are
following suit. At V. II. C. Arts '20 was the last class to be hazed,
and since that time our initiations have been neither one thing nor
another.
This year, to the credit of the Initiation Committee, |l can be said
that the very best possible programme under the circumstances has
been set In motion. With praiseworthy Ingenuity they have devised
a series of rules so practical In their value that the unfairness of the
principle of Initiation will be more than offset by them. This year's
Initiation should therefore be carried through In the excellent spirit with
which It was begun, But when the Class of '30 arrives—"let the dead
past   bury Its  dead."

TOMMY TAYLOR
TROUBLES THE
TINY TOTS
They say curiosity killed the eat,
Well, at least, It nearly killed some
five hundred "kittens" last week
when it was announced that the Friday meeting was for "members ot
the upper years only." True it is,
one of the freshmen did have the
gall and temerity to sneak into the
august assembly, but His Royal
Thingumabob, Tommy Taylor, soon
spied his brilliant polar decoration
and ordered "Pinky" Stewart to best
it. Pinky did—with assistance. Mow-
ever, here's what happened.
Brick McLeod called tho meeting
to disorder with "Kitsllano:" Tommy Taylor then submitted the program which the council had drawn up
for the edification and humiliation of
the freshies.
(1) They were to do some work
(loud cheers from the Sophs—by the
way, the Sophs could well cheer: they
got off pretty easy last year, didn't
they?) Saturday the freshies were
tc perform the Intensely interesting
and instructive task of, removing the
stones from the playing field. "This,"
Tommy said, "Is to be called the
freshies' Held day."
(2) All seniors and juniors blest
with gowns were to wear them
(again there was loud and prolonged
applause from the peanut gallery.
You see they—the Sophs—haven't
any.)
(3) Tuesday, today, was to be
marked by the issue of a special number of the "Ubyssey" for the freshies.
4) Wednesday noon there will he
a big Alma Mater meeting. Everybody out, Including the Freshman
Class. Seats will be provided—on the
floor.
(6) And, just think (freshmen will
be excused!) Lester Court will be
the scene on Friday night of the big
crush—the Frosh Reception. Admission will be by ticket only. That la
to say, you try to get a ticket. It you
are successful, you go.   Tickets freel
After this brief introduction, Tommy launched himself—head flret—
Into the question of "Senior Privileges." Besides the minor pleasures,
such as watching the toiling members of Arts '29 work (?) and covering oneself with pseudo dignity and a
gown, he proclaimed the following:
(a) No freshies may smoke on tho
campus. If they want to indulge in
the, weed they must sneak off behind
the Science Hulldlng, or into a B. C.
E. It. bus. The privilege here lies in
the fact that a senior may enjoy the
fact that he enjoys that which tho
freshie may not enjoy.
(b) The upper years have a monopoly of all steps, curbstones, boulders, window sills, empty barrels and
all other seats which have been so
thoughtfully provided by the authorities  in  charge
"Don'ts" Applicable
To All Students
The attention of all students is called to the following regulations which
will be strictly enforced by the Student's Council: —
1. There is to bo no smoking in
the University buildings, except in the
common rooms.
2. No student is allowed to loiter
In the halls.
3. There must be no carvng of any
sort on the desks or woodwork of any
of the buildings. Likewise, there
must be no writing on the walls.
4. All notices must be dated, ana
removed after one week. As the
notice boards are primarily for the
use of executives and official student
and faculty announcements, private
notices must give these precedence.
No private advertisements are allowed to appear on these boards. To
compensate for this regulation, the
Ubyssey offers to conduct a free service In the way of advertising books
for sale hy the students.
5. Petty thieving will be summarily dealt with by the Students* Council. The co-operation of the students
is requested in reporting oifences of
this nature. THE   UBYSSEY

TREND OF  MODERNISM
"Evolution fails to apply to
modern society, and in consequence we have the possible retrogression of, human life and the
survival of the unfit. Modern pity
and charity protect the feeble;
modern war and competition destroy the strong."
Such is the rather alarming statement made by one of our present-
day scientists. Has out- university any relation to this modern
tendency ?
During the student campaign a
good deal of controversy raged
over the value of University
training, To-day our splendid
buildings nt the Point are good
evidence that wo have won the
battle. Our stand is* for higher
education, and it appeals to that
higher faculty in man, lo something above the plane of sordid-
ness and "les mescpiiueries tie
la vie." But let us remember,
as in all human questions, there
are many sides to it which, were
each side fully understood, would
all perhtips dovetail into a harmonious whole.
The present era is essenl ittlly
an u^e of eilin-nt imt. Many of
us may suggest Hint knowledge
is the Suminuiu Montini, yet the
problem arises—just how far may
we withdraw from "nature"
along this higher plane, without
severely rupturing our "earthy''
and more fundamental ties.
To-day many of our best trained men and women sacrifice their
more  natural tendencies for the
sake of research  work and careers.     We   have   the   clamoring
for the equality of the sexes. Wo
men are branching out  into art
business, politics and the profes
sions.    Home life seems to be m.
dcr  nn   ever   thickening  cloud--
home life,   the   very   essence   of
character-moulding, which, in ils
turn, is so vital for the elevation
of the species.
The modern trend of thing*
has no doubt been influenced a
great ileal by our universities.
True, education is raising us higher in the scale; but still, is our
civilization as natural as it should
he ? May we not compare it to
a prize show-dog ?-~a fine specimen, but with nil its nntural
strength, ferocity and instinct
bred  out  of  it.
THE WRITING ON THE
WALL
The University in its new home.
This statement may seem superfluous—we have had the fuct called to our attention a good many
times during the past two weeks.
Hut there is one point in this
connection which perhaps we have
not yet considered—a new aspect
of ah old problem. In these buildings the walls are clean and
white, the furniture smooth and
shining, how long will this state
of affairs continue? Not long,
certainly, if we do not abandon
our Fairview habit of writing or
carving on every available surface. Now that we are making
a fresh start it should be our
pride to keep our university as
clean and spotless as it is now.
Initials, autographs, and various
samples of handwriting and drawing no doubt possess considerable
artistic value in their own place
-—but 1 hat place is not a classroom wall; nor arc the seats and
iables of Ihe I'ltiversity the ideal
materials for specimens of wood-
carving.
Il is hardly Iik.■ I\ Ihal a pen
ally will he necessary to enforce
a ruling of this sort. Hut if there
should be students so little interested in the appearance of their
t'niversity as to deface its buildings and furniture with pencil,
pen or pocket knife, the Students'
Hourt will doubtless be able to
deal with any such  offenders.
In the meantime, the pseudo-
ambit ions, who soil walls and
desks with their emblazonings will
be sought out and given the publicity they crave through Ihe columns of this paper.
Freshmen Tortured
(Continued from Page 1)
spoke on Initiations In general, and
this one In particular. He commended
the sane, business-like, useful method
employed hy the Initiation Committee
this year. T. Wilkinson, President
A. M. 8., spoke a few words, reminding the new students that it was up
to them to make the University, that
It was their duty to establish worthy
traditions, and set a mark for future
years.
The election of temporary President and Secretary of the class then
took place. Of the three nominees
for the presidency, only two appeared.
Both gave short, snappy, and somewhat amusing addresses. Mr. Stevens
was elected by a small majority. The
election ot secretary resulted In favor
of  Miss  Matheson.
Tommy Taylor closed by outlining
the regulations applicable to the

DOLLY
The other night I dreamt that
Dolly was dying.
The dark stood all around and
held me fast;
And tar, far oh' was a light und a
little crying,
And I felt a wind of feathers sb
they passed.
Thick fingers fell over my eyelids,
a dull heat held me,
My handB outstretched could reach
her not—my dear,
But somewhere In darkness I knew
she lay and called me
And I knew not where and could not
come to her,
A flash cut the thickness away and
she stood before me,
Still to my eyes most beautiful,
though In death,
The dawn broke coldly over the
dreary house tops,
And something that fled with the
darkness caught Its breath.

THE LIBRARY
Editor  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:—
If you will permit me, Blr, I would
like, through the medium of your
paper to protest most emphatically
against the action of the authorities
In closing tihe Library Building on
Saturday afternoon. Some of the
students, myself Included, find It desirable, now and then, to devote a
part of tho time we spend at the
Point to study. Now, sir, I ask for
which purpose these magnificent reading rooms were Intended—decoration
or study?   Then why not use them?
I would like to hear the opinions
of othar 'students on this subject.
Thanking you for the space which I
have used.
1 am,
Yours sincerely,
PRO  BONO  UNDERGRADO.
Editor Ubyssey.        •
Sir:—
That rare piece of Idiocy announced
by the Students' Council a3 an Initiation Programme or Digest of Senior
Class Privileges Is not without perturbing significance to Seniors as well
as Freshmen. Council's proposals are,
by this time, common knowledge, the
more tolerant of the student body are
decidedly aware of the puerility and
almlessness of two or three of the
suggestions, while the narrow-minded
claim (perhaps unfairly) that "the
braying of the ass" was discernible
throughout.
To   save  the  dignity  of  the  upper
classes,  one  can   hope  that   the  programme as announced on Friday will
never be enforced;  and that Council,
having  once  pushed   the  students   to
the very edge of the utterly ridiculous,
may take wanting and hereafter, with
as much deliberation as possible, seek
the   sublime   in   other   paths.     In   the
obvious  tolly of its suggestions, Coilli-
! ell   litis   raised   serious  doubts,   in   the
j ihoiurhl I'uI   minds   of   the   students,  us
Mo the desirability of any form of Inl-
, tiit'ion.   it   it   consists   merely   in   ntak
! lug   the   Freshman   a   niatk   for   dell-
erule  studied   humiliation.
decidedly It is disheartening to the
student body, which takes some Interest in Its own affairs, to realize that
the Council elected to look after these
affairs, has been able to suggest In
all seriousness, a programme which la
not hint? more than a regrettable piece
of shallow buffoonery.

"Women's Lit. to Have
Definite Membership
Various Debates Planned for
the Year
At the Women's Literary Society
Meeting which was held after the
Mock Tr.'al In room 100A on Wednesday last, Miss Marlon Smith, president, gave a short review of the activities or the society, In the past.
Miss Smith then suggested her reasons for believing that more enthusiasm could be aroused, and that more
work cpuld be accomplished, If the
society were l? have definite membership, Instead of being open as In the
last. After some discussion of the
matter had ensued, and various opinions had been given, the meeting voted
that the society should have a
'United membership system, new members to be chosen by the chartered
ones, together with the executive.
All those who have taken part In
Debates or Oratorical Contests in the
past, automatically become members,
and these, will help to decide about the
admission of applicants to the society.
All applications for membership
should be handed In to Marion Smith,
or any other member of the Women's
Lit. executive.
Many Interesting Items have been
placed on the programme for the coming session. There will be, as usual,
the Oratorical Contest, and the Inter-
class debates for the shield. Besides
this, it Is hoped that arrangements
can be made for staging an Intercollegiate debate perhaps with Victoria College. Then too, tho executive
have many Ideas for skits, plays, discussions, and several other features
of a like nature, which should be of
general interest. Accordingly, It is
expected that the varied and entertaining programme which has been
considered, will help the society to
arouse more enthusiasm, and draw
lurger crowds than ever.
MUSICAL SOCIETY
PLANS TRY-OUTS
Some are suggesting that the Musical Society has become discouraged
with Its efforts to instil harmonious
Instinct into the crude minds of university students, and given the job
up as one never to be accomplished.
They are entirely wrong. The Musical Society Is merely marking time.
Unfortunately, a piano is needed for
their practices, also the auditorium.
It appears that the auditorium is a
very elusive thing, and although the
Students' Council have done their
best, arrangements for Its use are not
quite completed, hence the standstill
of the Musical Society.
The whole matter will probably be
arranged,   however,   soon   after   this
Ubyssey goes to press, so that tryouts
will be commencing early this week.
Any   students   who  can   sing  up  two
octaves with a fairly high percentage
of  accuracy,  or   play  three  thrills  in
succession  on  the accordion   or Jews-
harp, anil   would  like  to  give  expression   to   this   musical   talent   without ,
! leac ().'' bodily Injury  from their neigh- j
I i)":,  are  strongly  advised   by  the ex-,
jectnive   to    Hatch   the    notice   hoards,
J with   ea(.-,le   eyes   to-day   and   Wedues-,
jdus.    Tryouts are neither fatiguing or I
embamssing,   and   the   first   two   or
three  minutes  while the kind gentle
man  asks  you  your  name  and  year,
are  the  worst.    The  society  Is planning a real live session, and new members   (including   Freshmen and Freshettes)  are welcome to Its fold.

Freshettes Initiated
(Continued from Page 1)
stretched   forth  welcoming hands  to
them.
Then names were read out, and
the freshettes were herded Into
groups, and led away to the slaughter.
Throughout the campus they were stationed, and their tender fingers put
to the vile tasks of floor-scrubbing,
door knob polishing, dusting, sweeping, and barrel rolling. When their
tired heads drooped over the work,
the slave drivers sought to spur them
on with the words, "You are doing
this as your duty to your college!"
Several hours later, white and fainting, they were driven down to the
Botanical Gardens, whare they were
given one sandwich and a cup of
strange-looking coffee to support
tbem until they returned to the Auditorium. As the freshmen and freshettes entered this building, they were
branded with the Freshman National
colours. Seated again upon the floor,
they were amused with stories until
It was time for the buses to take
them home. Each, passing out, was
donated a little book containing nursery rhymes and Bible stories for the
young.
The members of '29 were very quiet
and subdued as they made their way
toward the buses. Just what were
their true thoughts on the Initiation
no one can  tell.

"A STRAW SHOWS WHICH WAY
THE WIND BLOWS''
In this Issue will be found a form
for students to fill in and turn In to
the Publications Board. It consists In
a straw ballot for the forthcoming
Federal election.
Student opinion and public opinion
are not as far apart as most people
think, and a vote by the student
body shjuld be a pretty fair Indication of what the rote by the highly
intelligent common people will be. At
any rate It should be interesting to
note Just where the deviations lie.
Would-be election prophets will be
materially assisted by auch a proceeding. Also a certain interest In public
affairs is occasionally stimulated by
a straw ballot,—but very occasionally, especially with such an apathetic
body as the students seem to be this
year.
All ballots should be turned In to
Publications Hoard by Wednesday
night, at 4 p.m., at the very latest
Results will be announced in Friday's
paper.

Coming up to Varsity on Monday
morning I saw a Freshie walking along
slowly Just ahead or me, his head bent
and his shoulders bowed with some
secret sorrow, on his arm the green
stigma of shame. I hailed him with
poft words.
"Oh Freshie, come hither! What
of the Inlt-."
Before I could complete my sentence
he was half a block away. It took
five minutes or strenuous pursuit to
catch the youngster. His body trembled all over and he regarded me with
the glassy stare ol' a frightened rabbit, e
"You, you're one of THEM!" He
gasped. "Please, I was there on Saturday—Sir!"   He hurriedly added.
"But why?" I began. "1 only want,
od to know—"
He interrupted mo. "Do you know
TTTommy TTaylor?" He whispered.
"That dreadful man!"
"Only slightly," I assured him hastily.   "Why, what ha* he done?"
"Done!" Freshie groaned plteously.
"What hasn't he done. And not only
him. There were ofhers." "He, he
gave me auch a nasty took!" He
sobbed. "It wasn't my fault that those
other brutes were pushing rrom behind. I didn't want to go Into the
auditorium! And there was another
beast —er Gentleman, too, He, He
asked me my name! They dug
picks and things Into my back and
ihoved me. There was a big man
named Oliver. He had a cruel
mouth!"   The lnrant started to weep.
"Never mind, my boy. It's all over
now!"   I comforted him.
"AH over now! It, it's only b»gln-
nlng. They made me work all afternoon on the campus In the boiling
sur., picking up rocks. I, I never work-
id before. And now do you know
what they call this week? Freshman
week!—And that means more torture.
That man Taylor and a brute called
Louis Something. They, they're heartless!"
"Well, never mind, Its lucky you
went, anyhow. You might be up before Council."
At these words he blanched a t'e-1 lh
'y white, and I feared he was going to
faint. As I laid him softly on the
greensward he seemed to be murmuring a prayer. I bent to catch his
words.
"I must not smoke on the campua."
"It must not sit on the steps." "I
must give up my seat to a senior." "I
mustn't—" His voice trnlled awav.
The ease demanded desperate measures.    I hastily spoke.
"Remember, sonny, next year you
will bo a Soph, and then—"
The color flew back to his cheeks.
He sat up. A smile of happy anticipation parted his lips.
"And then won't I Klve the Freshies
Hell!"

Second Team Draws
With B. C. Telephone
The Varsity eleven made an auspicious entry Into second division on
Saturday at Powell Street, when they
held B. C, Telephone to a 1—1 draw.
] Manager Llersch was In a benevolent
mood after the game and, although It
Is not his custom, granted the Ubyssey reporter an Interview. He stated
that despite the fact that only four
of last year's regulars were with tho
team this year, he hoped to knock
the others either Into or out of shape
very quickly.

About the 'Varsity
By A. X. M.
The proposed anti-fuBstng by-law
was by long odds the funniest thing
of the week. Had a lethargic student body passed it the results would
have been stupendous. For instance,
the first meeting of the Arts '29 class
executive (unless It took place at
noon) would have Been the whole executive peacefully parked in the
Students' Court while Mr. Kobe and
Mr. Llmpus, or somebody else, eloquently proved the insanity of tho
whole class. A freshman dropping in
on the Students' Council to ask the
secretary if this was the Arts Building would Immediately have been
haled before the beak, and last but
not least, Mil of Publications Board
would have been In the Students'
Coop before tho week was out. Which
would have been one feature not altogether impleading to a just and wlsn
student body.
Humane Initiation was the watchword this year. Whereas In other
years the freshman class haa been
"hazed"; this year we had softer
treatment. Consider the contrast.
Under the old system the freshman
showed up about 6:80 Saturday night,
was given a mild scare, paraded
through town, lit a bonfire, made a
complete fool of himself and went
home tired, exhausted, but relatively
happy. Thereafter he was, as a result
of his experience, Imbued with loyalty and enthusiasm for his University
and his class. The sophomores did
about five times as much work initiating the freshman as the freshman
did in being initiated. And It was all
over In one evening.
But under our more modern and
humane system things are different.
The freshmen are first allowed to pay
twenty-five cents to their Alma Mater
Society, then to beg, buy, borrow, or
steal a pick and shovel, with which
they work for about four hours doing
labor for which had they been workmen would have paid about two dollars each. Then they are to be done
out of their seats In Mr. Ledlngham's
cat killers by "moral suasion," (I.e.,
by being talked into selling out the
rights of future freshmen classes.)
Then they are forbidden to smoke on
the campus, or rather, ItiBlde of an
imaginary line on it, sir.ee the object
is not to prevent the Immature freshman from using nicotine, but only to
humiliate him. Then they are not to
be allowed to sit down anywhere, except in lectures, this privilege being
reserved for upper classmen, and of
course the freshettes have to appear
at all dances with ribbon in their
hair like little girls ot seven and
eight,   Such Is humanity,
And consider the psychological
effect of it all. No longer will the
first-year student think of himself as
n fully-fledged University student.
His inferiority complex will be developed to a point where his 'college
spirit' either disappears or becomes a
negative quantity. The old spirit of
happy-go-lucky ragging In initiation
has heen succeeded by the modern
and more humane spirit of work,
seriousness, and humiliation for the
freshman class.    Such is progress.
Soccer Team Loses
(Continued from Page 1)
by a large and enthusiastic gathering
of taxi drivers, baggage smashers and
hotel keepers who all expiossed a
fervent desire to make the visitors
feel at home. Hotel keepers offered
Stan Gale, the soccer club's secretary-
treasurer, the keys of their City
(hotel).
Newcombe and Buckley, both being
Aggies, and hence Interested In stock
judging, went to see what kind of an
animal the "Iron Horse" was at a
Nanaimo movie and were almost late
for the game, which started at 4
o'clock at the Central Park ground?.
The students got away to a flying
start, especially Phillips, who had his
anklo put out after five minutes of
play, Butler scored twenty minutes
from the outset, and the collegians
made things hot for the Nanaimo net
minder. Toward the end of the second half, however, the Island team
came back strong, and Mosher got his
new sweater dirty. Their efforts were
finally rewarded when Innis headed
the pigskin Into the net from a corner.
After the oranges Nanaimo still
pressed and the U. B. C. net minder
was called on to do his stuff which
he did In a manner that brought him
the plaudits from Nanaimo rooters.
Varsity's defence held the citadel
until about half-way through the last
period, then a "fowl" was awarded
against Buckley, who was playing
centre half In Bill Phillips' place, and
Dickenson beat Mosher with an unstoppable shot.
Jackson, the winners' husky centre,
then scored and a few minutes later
notched the fifth and last goal of the
game. Bill Phillips gamely kept on
playing at left wing but was a passenger. Crees, of last year's second
team, played a hangup game at right
half, as did Cyril Manning, formerly
of Saint Saviour's, at left full back.
These two men aro useful additions
to the Varsity first eleven.

English Rugby to
be Represented
If* Sfl
by rour Teams
A meetlnff of the English Rugby
Club was held on Thursday afternoon
at 4.16 p.m. in Room 100, Applied
Science Building. A good turnout or
enthusiastic members augured a successful season. The meeting opened
with Mr. J. Scott In the chair. It was
decided to elect an acting captain
pro tern, until a permanent captain
could be appointed. Upon a motion
by Dr. Sedgwick, Johnny McLean was
appointed to fill this position. Owing
to conditions which have arisen by the
loss of Captain C. Domoney, Mr. Scott
suggested that present officers also
be eligible for the Captaincy.
Two teams will again be entered
this year in the Miller Cup League,
and also two Intermediate Teams, one
of the latter to be composed entirely
of Freshmen. Mr. Scott pointed out
that the Freshmen were a "unit or
themselves acting In the University"
and urged the necessity of their Team
being entered. J. McLean will appoint a Captain to take charge of the
first game after which a regular Captain will be elected. C. B. White volunteered to take over the task of organizing the Freshman Team.
Regarding the management of the
Rugby Club,'it was decided that Bert.
Tupper should fill this office, and J.
McLean and 0. Phillips wore asked to
approach htm concerning the matter.
The President and Captain were appointed delegates to the Vancouver
Rupjby Union, H. Warren and G. Phillips acting as alternatives. It was
then moved by Dr. Sedgewick and
seconded by ('. B. White that the same
four delegates in the same order be
appointed  for the M. ('. Union.
Some dlilK'.ulty arose coneenilni,' the
possibility of securing suitable playing
frounds, but it was hoped that the park
at 2Btli Ave. and Willow St. uouid
he1 available.
Discussion about the change in color
ol sweaters ensued and It was agreed
that they should either he blue with
n. fold stripe or blue and gold check.
A motion to the effect that on a
certain day of each week, the Rugby
Men should meet in a body for Luncheon In the Cafeteria was unanimously carried. In this way they will
be able to discuss their various problems and students may get in touch
with them.

Arrangements are under way for
a game with the Washington State

This in the announcement made by

SIDNIY ARNOLD
The University of British Columbia this week mourns the
loss of one of Its most popular
students, in the death of Sid*
ney Arnold, of Arts '28, which
occurred on October 1st.
He was a native son of Vancouver and attended the Henry
Hudson Public School and North
Vancouver High School before
entering University with the
class of Arts '28. At High
School his record was an admirable one; and he was president of the Students' Council
in his Matric. Year, business
manager or the High School
paper, and a prominent member of the Basketball and Rugby teams. In all three years
he ranked among the first three
or his class.
University Btudents will remember him as left forward on
the Intermediate "B" Basketball
team, which toured the Interior.
He was also a pledge of the
Phi-Lambda Rha.
Funeral services were held at
the home and Interment took
place at the Ocean View Cemetery. A wreath was sent by
Arts '28.
Canadian Ruggers
Are Victorious
The Canadian ruggers successfully
defeated the Merlloma team on Saturday, by a score of 10-5. The Native Sons withdrew from the game on
account of the disorganised condition
of their team, substituting the Meri-
loma's squad. Only one half was
played, but the University distinguished itself, and the excellent calibre of
the team speaks well for the contest
next Saturday, when Varsity will compete with the College of Puget Sound
from Tacoma.
The game was a snappy affair
throughout. Exceptional ability was
displayed by "Bull" Newby at line
bucking, while the open field running
of Harold Million, and the excellent
tackling of Morris, contributed greatly
io Varsity's success. The Merlloma
scored first, and then V H, ('. settled
down to a hard grind that soon wore
down the opposing line. Hy successful end runs, line bucks, and crisscross plays, the ruggers found themselves with a five-point lead, which
they maintained until the end of the
first half. The second half was played by two Varsity teams.
U. n. C. lacked Its star half-back
Harry Seed, and Anderson, tho quarter-back, but the latter's position was
filled by Carrie and Stewart, alternately.
Great, enthusiasm is being shown
in this new game, and judging from
Saturday's send-off, It has a very
promising future. R. S. Seward, College of Paget Sound coach, came up
from Tacoma and witnessed the game.
Don't forget Saturday, October
10th!
