As Seiby Leads Science To Victory
Enthusiastic spectators, crowding both sides of the road east of tho
Calm and swarming like so many flies at advantageous points on the Science
building on Wednesday, saw start and finish nf one of the moat interesting
and keenly fought athletic events that has ever taken place within tho precincts ot the University when three teams composed of Science men, the
Anglican Theological College and Arts '30 made a fine bid for victory in the
Arts '30 Road Race. After a gruelling 2 1*2 mile course around the Campus
victory was Anally attained by the Sclencemen with a low score of 48 points

Snappy Soiree
The evening ot Tuesday, October
29 was a scene of gay festivity when
the Senior class held one of the flrst
of its class functions for th eyear, at
the Willow Hall. Under the able
supervision of the class committee,
the hall was decorated artistically
with Hallowe'en bats, skeleton and
pretty colored streamers, that put
fear, even, into the hearts of the most
fearless of the gate-crashers. Splendid musk: rendered by the Hotel Belmont Orchestra added to the pleasure
and enjoyment of the Senlorltes,
who, led by the illustrious Hill Turpin, of years gone by, wobbled antl
clouted the famous Vnrsity drag to
the scintillating rythni.
Tasty refreshments uud drinks were
served to tho sweltering mob of students who swarmed gallantly around
the punch bowl to receive a goblet of
the precious fluid for their lady-loves.
Sandwiches and delightful cakes, that
the senior women finally learned to
make after four years study, were
part of the offering. After the Interval of eating and President Murphy's
request to dispose of dishes, the dancing was resumed, and at the stroke
of  one, the happy crowd  dispersed.
Patrons and Patronesses for the
dance were Mr. and Mrs. F. G. C.
Wood, Mr. and Mrs. H. T. Logan.
Dr. G. O. Sedgewick and Mrs, Sedgewick and Miss M. L. Bollert.

"Cambridge" is Subject of
Address by Dr. Ashton
Another of the popular S. C. M.
lectures was held in Agric. 100, Tuesday noon when Dr. H. Ashton was
the speaker and chose as his topic,
"Cambridge." Illustrating his remarks
with lantern slides.
Dr. Ashton Is a Cambridge graduate
himself and knows his subject from
personal contact with that University
world. He told of the feeling for Cambridge that was created by a collection of memories stored in the mind
during undergraduate days. The
feeling of "abiding peace" around the
University buildings was stressod by
the speaker, also the impression of
unity gained by looking at the buildings, from the river, sllhouttod
against tho evening sky.
According to Dr. Ashton, many of
the world's greatest men havo attended Cambridge University since Its beginning, while comparatively few
have gene to Oxford.
"Peace Is necessary for the production of great scholars" nnd although
the general air of the University Is
one of pence. It Is still In direct touch
with the outside  world.
Dr. Ashlon stated thut when people
are shown around the University of
Cambridge, Ihey live never shown the
lecture rooms because only the pleasant places ure on view.
Only about twenty-live per cent of
the students who enter Cambridge
ever get a degree. If a student Is
taking an honour course and falls
once, ho cannot try again and has to
leave.    Many  great  men  havo  fallod
Hindu Philosopher
to Speak To-day
To-day at 3 p.m. ln Arts 100, the
students will have the opportunity of
hearing Maneck Anklesairia, a Hindu
philosopher, psychologist and lecturer
of repute. This speaker should be
especially interesting to the students,
for he himself ls a student, having
studied in the Universities of Bombay, Columbia, Illinois and Wisconsin.
Maneck Anklesairia knows much of.
European student life, having recently travelled and studied on the continent. For some time past he haa
been a leading worker in a student
youth movement in tho United States,
and has been selected as ono of the
leaders In the Local Peace Conference
to be neld in this city on the 17th of
next mouth. Mr. Anklesairia has a
world outlook and a vital Interest in
race problems and Internationalism.
Everyone is cordially invited to hear
this lecture which ls to be held under
the auspices of tho S.C.M.
to get their degrees and nobody worries.
Life ls centred in the colleges—
students live there and have College
rules to live by. The Colleges contribute to University funds and the
students' tuition fees come under the
College bill.
To break one of the College rules
may cause a student to be sent down
from the University. This is not always a disgrace if the deed has been
sporting and appeals to the minds of
the rest of the students. If such is
the case, a mock funeral ls given
the recreant and the attending band
ls made up musicians who have never
played their musical instrument before.
A   picture*  of   tho   playing   field,
i whero   the   great   Oxford-Cambridge
J game takes placo, was shown and tho
i small   grandstand  and   poor accomodation for spectators was pointed out

spirit  Is never mentioned or encour-

Cambridge teaches the duty to tlio
community.    It Implants a desire for

before   Dr    Ashton   could   finish   his
colorful and Instructive lecture.

Next week in many cities of the world graduates of our
University are meeting to renew acquaintanceships and to reminisce over their college days. Those nearer Vancouver will,
lye hope, return to the University to participate in the Home-
Coining celebrations. Ab undergraduates, it Is our pleasuie and
our privilege to welcome all who visit the University, and to those
Who are not so fortunate we would send a message of remembrance and an expression of pride ln the achievements of the
graduates of our Alma Mater.
Not bo many years have passed since "Home-Coming" was
first instituted. It is now a tradition and one which, we hope,
will do much to provide closer contacts between graduates and
undergraduates. At such a time of organized entertainments,
however, it Is easy to forget the true purpose of Home-Coming.
In the great European universities, buried in the traditions of
centuries, we may see an example which our students would do
well to imitate. In these famous colleges when the graduate
returns to his Alma Mater his welcome is not that of a few chance
friends who may still be there but a welcome by all the undergraduates of a university whose ties prove more than sufficient
to bind one generation to another.
Next week-end, therefore, we should waive that formality
which may ruin a fine custom, and make equally welcome graduates of 18 or '28 with the best hospitality that our University
can provide.
U. B. G. C. 0. T. C.
The decision of the Senate to permit the re-organization of
the Canadian Officers Training Corps at the University of British
Columbia comes ao |a result of prolonged discussion and a
thorough investigation as to the advisability of adopting this
measure. Various interests and aspects of the question had to
be considered, and in weighing up the evidence for and against
the re-establishment of the unit, Senate arrived at a decision
Which appears both fair and reasonable to all concerned.
In the flrst place, the rights of the Alma Mater society as
expressed by the majority against the re-organization of the C.
0. T. C. at the meeting last fall have been respected and observed.
The main objection expressed by the students that the C. 0. T. C.
was subject to control outside the university has been removed
to the extent that the individual in the C. O. T. C. is now not any
more subject to state control than the individual in any other
organization. It is true that this military training course might
tend to promote outside control if not properly organized, but
under the system authorized by Senate, the whole university
will have a voice in dictating the policy of this organization.
Moreover, the decision of Senate is in keeping with the
Honor system adopted by the students this session. The individuals in charge of and belonging to the C. 0. T. C. will be
entrusted to carry on the work of this organization in a manner
consistent with the ideals of the University, for they, rather
than outside authorities, are responsible for the work of the C. O.
T. C. in the University.
The wishes and rights of the minority, on the other hand,
have been respected and observed. A course in military training has been permitted to operate on the campus for the benefit
of those desiring to take this course. The University, however,
has decided to shift the responsibility for the course from outside authorities to those directly concerned; and we feel that
those interested in the work can be trusted to carry on not only
In the best interests of the University, but also in the best interests of world peace.
If the crowd which witnessed the track innovation on Wednesday afternoon ls an indication of the Student interest which
will be displayed at this annual event, the future of the Arts
'80 Road Race looks decidedly promising. Members of the
junior year are to be congratulated upon instituting a race which
will, undoubtedly, prove equally as popular as the famous Arts
'20 Relay. The choice of course is u happy one for it provides
continued Interest for the spectator.
Art» '30, however, has not established this inter-faculty road
race purely for the amusement of tlie students or tho establishment of a tradition for we feel safe In saying that tills race will
become traditional in University sport. The primary and highly
commendable object is to promote interest, in track ami to encourage athletes to commence truinlng before tlie autumn and
early spring meets,
Tlie honour of winning tlie splendid cup which Arta 'HO has
placed in the Trophy case will, no doubt, do much to promote
this form of sport, and we feel sure that in future years the Arts
'30 Road Race Trophy will be one of the most eagerly contested
of University awards.

thetlcally considered the letter from
the Alma Mater Society concerning a
Canadian Officers' Training Corps.,
that was addressed to lt last spring

re-establishment of the Corps, at this
From its nature lt ls a matter that
has to be determined for the University by the Senate.
In reaching a decision tt had before
It not only the opinion of the stude.it
body ub exprossed In the Alma Motor
Society letter but also that of tho
Faculties. ♦
Thut the Faculties and Senate
reached a conclusion somewhat different to that of the students, may

their having beforo them certain facts
uud factors that do not appear to havo

Slnno tho C.O.T.C. had not beon
officially abundoiied by thu University
thu question was not the establishment of a Unit, but whether lt might
be permitted to re-organlse.
While tho Senate .considered this
question from the standpoint of tho
University of Hrltlsh Columbia and
stress wus not laid ou tho fact that
practically every University ln the
Empire is maintaining a C.O.T.C, this
fact may have influenced the majority
of the members ot Faculty and Senate in concluding that the fears expressed by some were unlikely to bo
To remove a misapprehension that
appears to have existed, may It bo
pointed out thnt the C.O.T.C. is under
the supervision and direction of a
University Committee of Military Education appointed by the Senate, even
to the extent of the selection of its
Commanding Officer, This Committee consists of the Chancellor, tho
Dean of Applied Science and the President of the Alma Mater Sooiety, together with the Commanding Officer
when selected. With the powers It
possesses this Committee may be
trusted to safeguard the interests of
the University.

Acting President.

Plenty of Room
There Will be plenty of room tor
every graduate at Homecoming this
year. In poet years criticism has been
rightly levied at theatre night when
tne auditorium was filled with under-
grad.'s long before the concert was
scheduled to start. As a result many
grad.'s, In whose honor the affair is
Slven, have been forced to return
ome without even getting inside the
building. This year the freshmen and
freshettes will be. tactfully told that
their presence Is not desired. This
will not be Intended as any Blight
against the charm, collectively and individually, of the class Itself, but will
refer only to their overwhelming numbers as opposed to the extremely
■mall auditorium. Incidentally, since
Homecoming comes each year they
will find themselves able to enjoy
three more such occasions before
graduation, and after that they will
be honored guests, so what more
could they desire.
Many added attractions have been
promised to the graduate who comes
to look the University over during
Homecoming week-end. For Instance,
we are now the proud possessors of
the longest flagpole In the British Era
plre. It doosn't approclato Its Job yat
as it is lying on the ground Instead of
standing as all good flagpoles should.
However, It has an excellent little
house erected over lt, and has doubtless been placed in this position so
that each grad. may inspect it from
end to end in comfort instead of craning his or her neck to get a proper
view. We understand that the members of the freshman class are all taking sewing lessons ln order to get together on making a flag large enough
to be seen when lt ls perched on the
end of the pole.
There is another great attraction for
the grad.'s, namely, the flsh pond.
Many happy hours are spent each day
by dreamy students gazing into the
depths of this young lake, which ls the
apple of Mr. Rldlngton's eye, Gold
flsh frolic in Its depths and a small
portion of the library Itself is reflected In the limpid waters, when the
wind doesn't blow. You mustn't miss
this, grad.'s.
Many new roads have been made
In the University section and a regular colony of houses havo been built,
There is also a perfectly beautiful station on tho University grounds that)
makes waiting for tho 'bus a real
pleasure. It Is nearly all roof and Is
v«ry grand Indeed. Don't wait fori
theatre night to visit the buildings, hh j
you won't be able to see them lu tho
dark and they will ho locked anyway.
Huinnion tho nearest student and demand a personal tour.
Wo need tho cooperation of every
grad, to iniike Homecoming a real success.
Tommy Teylor took his M.A. at Wisconsin University at Madison, and his
Ph.D. at Toronto. Congratulations,
Do They Learn To
Drink at Home
or College ?
There have been many complaints
lately, alleging drinking and gambling
among the students of tho University
of Washington. When the complaints
came to the ears of President Spencer, he assembled 2500 students on the
campus and earnestly lectured them
on these evils.
He was well Into his subject, vigorously raking the actions of students
who, thoughtlessly more than from
mere Idea ot wrongdoing, might bring
discredit on Alma Mater, when a boy,
with moral courage that must be marvelled at, interjected loudly:
"When our parents and elders openly flout the Prohibition Law, why
should we be any better?"
It was a "facer." and turned the
spotlight of criticism from the doings
of the students to thoso of their elders. At tho present time, the Press
of the States of Washington and Oregon Is busy asking Parents to "look
themselves over," In connection with
the serious charge laid on them by
the hoy student.
The editor (,f tho student dally,
commenting on the charges, says lie
ls convinced that tho charges are exaggerated.

Inside Dope on Harrry Warren
Is Given by Famous Sprinter
Harry Warren was chosen for tho
Canadian Olympic Team because of
the excellent record he made for him*
self in England. On different occasions before the Olympics he was
matched against notable flashes, German and English, and on each occasion
proved that he was worthy to represent Canada.
When the Canadian Team left Montreal it was with only four sprinters.
Warren was to be picked up at Southampton, where he would be on the
team as a spare unless he proved himself against any of the other four
In Amsterdam lt was a case that If
anyone wanted Warren he could always be found training faithfully on
the track. As far as I know, Harry
Warren did not get a chance to pit
his speed against any of the other
sprinters, All through .the games he
was there to be hail if anything did
go wrong. No one, during the whole
of the time we were there, heard even
a murmer of protest or hard feeling
towards the others and he never left
off training.
In a week, when our part of the
games was over, we loft for London,
and after a short stay there went to
Dublin to run at the Irish games there.
Here was the flrst real chance Warren
had to match himself against the boys
who had been rated above him at the
Olympics. He fought his way successfully through the heats, and in the
final flashed across the tape a good
winner in the remarkable time of 10
8-5th seconds, equalling the Olympic re*
cord. To make this more outstanding,
this race was oa a grass track. Later
I heard that a rather odd thing hap*
pened regarding this.« As I understand
lt, the newspapers came to the conclusion that to have run the race that
Warren ran would be next to Impossible so they published the result aa
10 4-5th seconds.
Whether Warren was really better
than the other sprinters Is a matter
of personal opinion. While he was
training to his peak of form the others
were fighting their strength away ln
the Olympic Games, nevertheless be
did prove himself when he was given
the chance.
Right after these games Warren left
the team and went to the south of
England and later was to return to
Grad.'s, what are you doing? Your

Through the courtesy of the editor and business manager of the "Ubyssey"
a special offer has been made to graduates of the University of British
Columbia. This year an innovation has taken place in the Ubysseygrad,
since It will now be incorporated in the "Ubyssey" three times each year.
In addition to this the editor of the student publication has offered to run
a special graduate column of interest to the grads every two weeks, or
oftener it the need should arise.
The regular price of the "Ubyssey" Is $3 per year. The student staff had
offered to furnish the paper to the grads for this sum, to include the graduate fee of $1. That ls, they will charge each of you $3 a year, but will send
the graduate body one dollar of this amount, We cannot help feeling that
many grads will take advantage of this offer as there is much of great
interest to more than the student body that ls published ln their columns.
The paper Is published twice a week and will therofore take care of the
complaints frequently received by the treasurer last year asking for more
news of the alumni members. We ask all grads. to make a special effort to
take this subscription. Besides very decidedly getting your money's worth
you will be doing a good turn to tho student staff by helping them to finance
their papor more successfully. Instead of sending one dollar to tho alumni
this year, send three do'lars and receive your copy of tho "Ubyssey" twice
each week through tho mull. And remember, each week you ponder over
the question you loose tho chance of reading two Issues of the "Ubyssey,"

Players" Club Alumni
President's Report
Many changes have recently taken place in the Player's Club.
Since over two hundred grads are members of this Ciub, it is
interesting to note them.
In the flrst place Prof. P. G. C. Wood has left the Club.
Since its inauguration, Freddy has been the backbone of the
organization, and the students came to lean rather too heavily
on his judgment. "Freddy knows best," was famous long before
"Mother knows best" came to the Capitol. At all events overwork and poor health have forced the honorary president and
director of the Club to leave it to struggle along as best, it can
without him.
Under the leadership of Miss Dorothy Pound the Club is
managing to keep its reputation so far on the same high pinnacle
on which it has always resided. The executive and president
deserve great credit for their organizing abilities in this direction
as none of them have had any experience in the Club executive
work before. They are being ably assisted by Dr. Isboel Maclnnes, Miss Honor Kidd and Mr. Harry Logan, as advisory coin-
Nevertheless, and by-the-way, it might be a good idea If the
Player's Club alumni body Alumni
graduate members should combine to form! a Player's Club
alumni body. This club could act as an advisor to the student
club whenever its opinions should be asked and could, In the
mean tlmo, have a very good time by itself.
Without doubt the Students' Council would allow the members the free use of the auditorium on occasional evenings when
they are Inspired to humor the muse. Financial troubles would
hardly exist and any plays in which the members were, collectively or Individually, interested could be produced. The students
oould be the audience and an occasional guest night could be
Introduced. Some of our members have written plays and this
would give them a chance to try them out; others could direct
plays, and others again read them and suggest plays for production,
How about it, Players'Club alumni? If you are at all Interested please write to Miss Avis Pumphrey, 1335 Davie Street,
or Mr. Phil Elliott, 1342 Walnut Street and arrangements for
organization can be made.
Selective Method Predicted
University education is undergoing radical change, in the
view of Professor Murray Butler, President of Columbia, who is
Sistly regarded as one of the world's foremost educationists,
r. Butler notes a change from the prescribed course of study
to a selective and experimental process of learning.
In earlier days, he declared in a recent address, students had
a uniform body of knowledge and a uniform method of discipline.
Then came an immense mass of new information. Two new
-fields of study were opened for the flrst time: one in the sciences
of nature, the other In the sciences of man and society. There
was rapid growth in physics, chemistry, psychology, physiology
and other sciences, and with this growth came the necessity of
ohoosing only a small proportion of the total subjects to be
Jearned. As a result of this change, experiments in education
became essential, and a substitute had to be found for the prescribed course of study, which was no longer practical.
This need led to the most important achievement of the last
half century in American college education; it is the course
giving introduction to contemporary civilisation, which Dr. Butler
styles "a common denominator for education, giving a uniform
exposition of the fundamentals of the material and spiritual
Dr. Butler advises students to acquaint themselves with the
outstanding leaders of the world, and to read much of their writing, In preference to the "cheap and tawdry imitation," which
surrounds us at all times. Among the political leaders he recommends to be studied are Lenin and Mussolini.
The sympathy of the Alumni Ih extended to Peggy Law, who recently

elaborate program wus carried out and
among other events there waa u presentation mode to the University of
two valuable totem poles of the
Muskeam Indians. The money for

Colonel A. M. Brown and Mr. Wllllum
Murphy of tho Historical Research
Committee that these poles were secured lor presentation to the University.

a written record, copies of which will
be presented to the University Library and to the Provincial Archivist
at Victoria. Mr. Murphy has already
done a tremendous amount of work
in connection with this Committee
and reports satisfactory progress. It
was through the efforts of this Committee that the totem poles referred
to above were secured. Through the
courtesy of the Vancouver Dally Province and the Provincial Librarian
this Committee is arranging tor financing up to 1760.00.

Teachers' Federation expressing appreciation of the entertainment and It
was felt by the University authorities
that the results would be of great
benefit to the University, particularly
as many of the out-of-town teachers
were given an opportunity of seeing
the University for the first time,
10. The executive secured an
amendment to the University Act at
the recent Liberal Legislature under
which the Board of Governors are empowered to collect a life membership
fee for the Alumni Association upon
graduation. No steps havo yet been
taken to make a formal request to the
Board of Governors to do so.

Treasurer's Report
Mr. Lyle Atkinson, president of the
Alumni Association, who held the
position of treasurer last year, received several Irate letters during his
term of office inquiring, ln no polite
terms, "What happened to my dollar?" It was difficult to reply lu any
detail to these letters without sending
a complete treasurer's report to each
one. This the president has elected
to do, publishing in full the financial
report of the association. In this way
the out-of-town members will be able
to see for themselves that the, by this
time famous, dollar was used for more
purposes than simply that ot the
printing of tho bulletin, Some of the
epistles he received stated that week*
ly or oven a dally bulletin should have
been received by the sender of the
dollar lu question, Mr, Atkinson and
Mr. Sherwood Lett, former president,
hud other views on the subject, and
wero backed lu their abortions by
tho other members of the executive.
Tho treasurer's report, read in conjunction with that of the president,
should explain very fully that the
Alumni Association had certain obligations to fulfill In social and financial
ways to maintain their prestige in the
University circles and throughout tho
city. Certain Boclal events were a
necessity and, although in some cases
the alumni members charged tho
guests for the entertainment, in many
others it was considered bad policy
to do so.
It ls possible that the out-of-town
members may remark "What good do
we get out of social events and activities held in the city?" To these
people we point out that such a thing
as a good name and prestige reflects
on members whether they be ih the
city or at the other side of tho world.
For the satisfaction of those who may
feel that thev have not. received their
money's worth the treasurer's report
ln full Is printed.

U. B. C. and Vancouver Rep
To Clash in Series Opener
Choosing the fifteen pig-skin chasers to wear the Blue and Qold colors
when Varsity meets the Rep. on Saturday is going to be no simple task.
Competition is keen and the eagerness shown by the players turning out
makes the problem no easier. Last Wednesday saw about thirty senior men
sweating under the orders of our hard working coach, Jack Tyrwhltt. Jack
deserves a lot of credit for the time he has spent and the way he has worked
In turning out a McKechnie Cup team of which the University are going
to be proud. The players are working hard too. They go out for long runs
at noon time and are hitting the hay early these nights, storing up millions
of calories of vitality to be used against Vancouver on Saturday. The coach
is doing his part, the team theirs, so it's up to the students to get behind
them in a whole-hearted manner and go out and cheer the boya to victory.
For the benefit of those who have not been following this sport, we Introduce
the following members of the Senior English Rugby squad in the form they
are going to function on Saturday.
Phil Willis—Captain ot the team and all-around good fellow.   He is one
of tho most experienced players and has played agalnBt three International
teams—the All Blacks, Maoris, and Waratahs.   He Is the master man behind
the play and puts all his energy into crashing through the opposition.
Estabrook.—-"Estle" is a robust lad
with a nice disposition when oft the
rugby field. He handles well and possesses a mean tackle which is very
"Phil" Barratt.—A cool head and
fast pair of legs combine to make
"Red" Barratt one of the prettiest
styled players on the field.
Art Pell.—Plays on the opposite
wing to Barratt and Is a hard man
to Btop. Has caught on to the finer
points of the game and plays his position well.
Bert Barratt.—Possessed with uncanny ability in getting the ball out
to the threes, combined with a perfect knowledge of the game and a
deadly tackle, Bertie is probably the
best half ln the city.
Fred Foerester and Bud Murray.—
Theae two are as neat a pair' of
hooks as ever scraped a ball in these
pans. They have played together for
two years and are each endowed with
clogs Ihat can twist the pigskin In any
direction regardless of the opposition.
Foerester has been out from injuries,
but should be back ln the lineup. Mason, substituting for him, hooks in
good style and has the qualifications
of an "A 1" forward.
8parks.—Gunboat Sparks is leader
of the scrum and will hold the hooks
together Saturday. He breaks the
scrum quickly, follows up fast and can
dribble well. The team would not be
complete without him.
Wilson.—Known to his team-mates
as "Pooch," A good scrum man and
aggressive forward. He always gets
his man.

Soldiers' Field, Chicago, last month,
when Notre Dame University defeated

points in the last tew minutes of the
One distinguishing feature of the
major sport Is the fact that students
are urged to lend their unanimous support to teams of premier standing in
preference to those of minor or sub-
minor ranking. For this reason, lt ia
lamentable when two major evente
occur at the same time as is the oale
on Saturday and it is to be hoped that
in future these clubs will map oat
their schodules In harmony with one
another before their seasons open.
Since the session commenced this
fall, the "Ubyssey" has featured Canadian Rugby as the game of the campus, but to-morrow English Rugby
playB its first match ot the year in the
famous McKechnie Cup Series, whioh
fact puts both teams equally In the
limelight. It is tbe purpose of the
Sports Supplement, therefore, to advertize both games side by side and
to induce every member of the Alms
Mater Society to get out to-morrow
and attend one of these events.
For Canadian Rugby, the game with
Vancouver will be a crucial clash, as
tho city plans and the collegians expect a surprising come-back. Juat as
Important is it for a large crowd to
attend the English Rugby game when
they meet the Rep. team, stnoe thii
will be the flrst match of the aeries
and the boys need the confidence
which student support can give them.
On Saturday at 2.30, Athletic Park will be the scene ot a Ufo-and-death
struggle between Vancouver and Varsity's as yet unconquered Big Four
Canadian Rugby team. A victory for U. B. C. means that the series and the
Seaforth Cup Is a sure thing. Varsity has four wins on the asset side of their
ledger, while Vancouver is credited with three victories and one loss, so the
game means everything to Jack Cranston's battlers.  As for Viotorla nnd N«w
Westminster, they are out of the picture
A too-successful beginning was the
cause of Varsity's slump in the last
two games, but the frame of mind in
which they enter the lists on Saturday
will have to be of a "door-die" nature
in order to make this game Vancouver's swan song.
Vancouver is a formidable team,
with a tough line and sweetly working backfleld. The team will Include
such men as Henderson, Donnelly,
Tennant, Young, Downey, Cranston,
Immediately following the Big Four1
event, Varsity's Intermediates will
meet their old friends, the Meralomas,
in a perfectly friendly tussle of course.
One of tho surprises of the season waa
Richmond's victory over them laat Saturday, bo the U. B. C. boys hardly
know what to expect. Considering the
double-header, it will comprise two
of the "fightin'est" games seen In
Vanoouver for years.
Photo shows Wentworth breaking away for yards with Smith In tha
baokground.   These man have figured notably thla grid season, the
former In the back-Said and the latter In the line.   More will bo seen
from them to-morrow.
Dr. Gordon Burke.—Di. Burke, who
has figured in Varsity's history since
the inception of Canadian Rugby, 1b a
coach of sterling value and incommensurable worth. He ls a veteran of
the University of Washington Huskies, for whom he played end, and he
still delights In bringing down the occasional 200-pounder to demonstrate
the undeniable fact that he can both
practise and preach with balanced
Norman Burley.—Norm, famous as
Btar middle for Kingston Royal Military College and Queen's University,
Is well known in national football
circles, both as a player and cdocn.
On this coast he played for the old
Native Sons and has acted as mentor
for Vancouver, Varsity and several
other local clubs. Of late years, how-
over, he has been attached solely to
Varsity. Both Norm and Dr. Burke
deserve the credit for any success
which this University ho* achieved In
the past, and the fact that they sacrifice their personal time and comfort
without remuneration is a striking
example of unselfish Interest ln the
President Wllmer Hagoerty. — Bill

Women's SenioruA"Hoopsters
Promise Interesting Season
The Women's Senior "A" Basketball
team expect a good season. Last
year's team, B. 0. finalists and runners
up in the Dominion championship, has
returned ln full force. Keen competition ls expected as there are only
three teams on the Mainland league,
"The Felixes," "The Meralomas," and
Thelma Mahon, thu team's fast for*
ward and most dependable player, has
again assumed the duties ot oaptaln.
Claire Menten, a steady forward and
good shot, has been the cause of
many good team plays in previous
years. Rettie Tingley, a very good
running guard and a brainy player,
will again turn out for Senior "A."
Renee Harris, a good shot and a reliable player, will play centre and forward. Jean Whyte, the hard working
centre and a good shot under the
basket, pioved a great asset to the
team last year. Although Marjorie
Lannlng is not as experienced as her
team-mates, she has been playing a
good game at standing guard. Florence Carlisle has been working hard
and, though taU ls her flrst year, will
probably turn out for Senior "A."
Mary Campbell, Senior "B" oentre,
last year, shows great improvement
and r'll probably All a guard position.
The Senior "B" team has not yet
been selected. The next game will be
on Homecoming week-end, when the
Senior "A" will play the Senior "B."
McKechnie Season Opens
(Continued from Page 5)
Farrls.—Ralph ls about the fastest
forward In the bunch. He usually
gets into some of the three-quarter
runs where his speed and snappy pass
are effective.
Player.—Has been showing up well
of late and Is anxious to secure permanent position.
Looke.— Is endowed with a neat
turn ot speed and shifting swerve,
which make him a hard man to down.
Plays his best game in his own position at seven-eighths.
Ford.—A freshman who has shown
up well ot late. He will fill the fullback berth, and his sure tackle should
be very effective against Vancouver.
Fraser. — Short and stocky with a
likeable smile and plenty of stamina.
He should show well on the forward
line Saturday.
Gotterel.—A speedy man from the
city of birds. Played flrst team for
University School, where he acquired
valuable experience and a great
Alpln.— Heavy, thick Bet, with a
good boot, he should be a mainstay
to the scrum and a hard man to hold.
The team has been practising hard
every morning and is rounding; into
splendid shape. They should give an
exhibition of rugby that will be a credit to Hh coaching and an honour to
Its University. Such a team doserves
support and ahould get lt whole-heart-
odly from the student body and the
faculty. Last, year and the year before about 1200 students attended the
first McKechnlo Cup game, and a still
bigger crowd is expected Saturday.
The tickets are 25c for students if
bought on the campus; otherwise they
are 60c. Tickets are being sold by
Ralph Farris and other members of
the English Rugby Club, as well as
by scores of beautiful women in the
College. Let's go, everybody! Don't
forget the Pep meetings Friday noon

as protegfi of Max Cameron, famous
as the central figure ln last year's
struggle for major standlug. In his
official capacity as President of the
Canadian Rugby Club, Bttl ls always
in the thick of things looking after
the Interests of football enthusiasts
In the University. His indefatigable
energy and unquestionable "college
spirit" ls no small factor in the Inner
workings of the Canadian Ruby team.
Captain Vlo Odium. — Vio arrived
here last year from R. M. C. after several years of big league football. He
starred on tho line-up of last year's
LIpton Cup Champions in the middle
position, and was unanimously elected
as Captain for 1028-20. His vast experience and fighting proclivities are
often the power which turns the tide
of battle.
Neil Watson—Centre. Nell has a
spiral pass which is dead sure and
a dream to work with. Invaluable as
snap-back, he has the ability—we are
sorry about this condition — to play
any other position on the team. An
episode ls recollected where the gentleman in question officiated as quarterback with hitherto unsuspected
Sandy Smith—Also centre. Sandy
undoubtedly knows what he is doing
on both offense and defense. Any
man who requests that someone be
ready to carry the opposing snap off
the field must be all right.
Oliver Camotsl — Guard. Oliver is
the prime mover ln the well-known
firm of Camosil & Hall (un)-Ltd., Inside. Bill Henderson, tn the laat game
against Vanoouver, hit the Varsity
line, seemingly encountered a cement
wall and rebounded correspondingly.
Dr. Burke was heard to remark, in
a matter-of-fact tone, that Camossi
must have been in there somewhere.
Wllf Hall—Also inside. Started with
Varsity on the battling Intermediates
of three years ago and has been working with Oliver Camossi ever since.
This pair are the classiest set of in-
sides in seven counties.
Denis Psaros—Still another guard.
Den. has appeared on the U. B. C.
squad for the last three years and is
a steady player with the characteristic Varsity fight, fight, fight.
Ross Jackson — Tackle. Varsity's
big blonde bucker, who partners with
Captain Vic Odium. He good-naturedly offers himself as victim whenever
Dr. Burke undertakes to show the Intermediates how to clip, with the whispered phrase, "The bigger they are,
the harder," etc.
Jaok Cummliga—End. Jack is fast
and a good tackle, and has all the
knowledge of a good outside man's
complicated duties at his finger tips.
John Colemah—Flying wing. This
i.'i Johnnie's first year ln fast company and he seems to be enjoying
himself, He learned his football at
Rt. Andrew's College, Toronto, and
they si'i'tn to turn out fairly good pupils. "Coleman" Is a name which
strikes terror to tho hearts of opposing safety men, for If they are on the
receiving end of a punt, Johnnie ls
always waiting to welcome them with
open arms and a set jaw. Since the
gam© at Queen's Park he has reached
the momentous conclusion that shoes
work better with cleats.
Campbell Duncan — Another end.
Cam's latent talent was well-developed on last year's Big Four line-up. He
ls known locally by the delightful cognomen of "the tacklln' fool," and he
never spares himself In his almost
fanatic eagerness to "get his man."
Tommy Berto—Quarterback. Tommy handled the Intermediates last
year In his flrst season, and this year
has moved up to the first string. He
Is a natural athlete with an instinctive "football brain."
Steve Qittus—Also quarter. Steve
ls one of the youngest boys on the
squad, but that Is no standard by
which to Judge his rugby. He is an
ex-Klskl and former Hyack with considerable experience already behind
"Cokls" Shields — Half. "Cokio"
needs no Introduction to the public.
He scintillates In every branch of sport
and displays his breathtaking speed
and awesome kicking In <>v«ry gome
Often his superhuman too, left or
right, has been the power behind the
throne In Varsity's victories,
Charlie Wentwortn—Half. Charlie,
in the comparatively short time which
he has been with us, has earned for
himself an enviable reputation and Is
one of the proverbial good men who
can't ba kept down.
Blair Dickson—Half. Blair is back
again after a regrettable absence of
one year, but he ls showing his old
form. When he gets under way ha
can't be stopped and he runs like a
scared cat.
Track Club Has Plans
For Full Program
The Track Club has already successfully started Its programme in staging
the Arts '30 Road Race on Wednesday.
There are three other events on the
fall program. In the flrst place, ln
two weeks time the Indoor Track Meet
takes place at the Horseshow Building
at Hastings Park. This ls an annual
event which was Inaugurated last
winter. Last year, since it was the
flrst atempt, it was not as successful
as was expected, especially as regards
the attendance. This year, however,
both the student body and the ath*
letes are taking more interest in the
event. The women are going to stage
a programme ot their own in connection with the meet which is sure to
make a difference.
The track meet is an lnter-class
affair and aa usual wild surmlsers are
gloating as to the name of the win*
nlng olass. Science and the Frosh
seem to have the best chance, although the Sophs, should make a good
showing, The Juniors have only a
few traoksters but everyone of those
will be on hand tor the honor of the
class. The Seniors appear hopelessly
out-classed and apathetic.
The sprints will be coppod by
Percy Williams with Bobby Gaul,
Shields, Fell and Harvey to make him
step out. In the hurdles Fell and
Shields are the best men. The
weights and broadjump should find
Shields, Alpen and Dirom trying their
skill. In the high jump Roberts of the
Aggies, Fell, Chappell, Thornbur and
some other good men will try to jump
over the moon. The 440 and the 880
distances will likely bring out a goodly number of runners amoug whom
the chief are Roberts, Terry, Chappell
and Thornbur. The longer distances
of the mile and 2-mile have a few
showing their speed, vis.: Chappell,
Selby, Todd, Debrlsay, Edwards,
Terry, and Dunn. The pole-vault and
the relay are usually In doubt until the
laat minute; but for the former Alpen
and Dirom look well and the Frosh
seem a good bet for the relay. Little
Is known about the women's events,
but it Is certain that there will be
speed and color galore.
For the further enjoyment of the
gallery of spectators and the more
exercise for the athletes an Informal
dance will be held immediately after
the meet. This waa a popular innovation last year and ahould be a big
drawing card.
Two weeks after the lnter-class
meet the Varsity Track Team clashes
with the Y.M.C.A. In their annual Indoor meet. Last year, to the great surprise of the dopestera, the Varsity
handed the Y.M.C.A., a team composed
largely of provincial champions, a
neat trimming. Varsity is anxious to
repeat the performance and the Interclass meet will bring out the material
necessary for this programme.
After this dual meet the trackmen
will rest until after the exams when
training will be resumed for the Road
Race In Victoria during the Victoria
Invasion. The Road Race is a two-
mile relay against the Victoria Y. Four
men constitute the team and each
runs a fast half-mile. This year the
course has been changed so that the
race will be run at half-time at the
McKechnie Cup Rugby Game. Varsity has failed to win this event but
Fell, Selby, Terry, Chappell and Dunn,
are anxious to go this Christmas, so
that a strong team will make the trip
and maybe win.
Lloyd Gillanders — Half. Lloyd is
another speed artist who ha3 Joined
the big league, for whom we must
thank the Blackhawk Junior team of
Gavin Dirom—Half. Oav. returned
a little late this year, but he is now
In lovely condition and his massive
bulk and speed can't be touched. Another veteran.
Harold Cliffe—Another inside (cf.
Camossi, Hall, etc.). Cliffe is a late
df /elopment, but he has tho frame
and the enthusiasm which ls half the
battle. Harold showed up well in the
game at Victoria.

this is the important question
which is at present troubling the best

there are two sides to the controversy,
those upholding the merits of the domestic crab and those ln favor of the
Japanese crab, not to mention the
Chinese. If well boiled they will both
appear well cooked, but Alasse
Cuisine, famous frier, firmly states
that the domestic crab is not reliable

The most popular man on the campus, Rufus MoOoofuB, demonstrates
what the well-dressed man will wear.
A grey tweed suit, amplified by blue
stripes gives a striking effect. Realizing this, Rufus now goes about the
Varsity knocking 'em oold.
Clean-up Week
Modern methods are now being applied to cleaning the Women's Common Rooms. This dark, mysterious
lady Is using a vacuum cleaner to
clean up stray powder, compacts and
chewing gum. This invention will be
tried out in the Lower Men's Common
Room (c.f., F.O.C. Wood) to gather In
lost collar buttons and cigarette butts.

If the Blue and Oold can win the

—we shall see the winners of the
Western Inter-colleglate Rugby Union
here for a play-off game. Should Varsity win that gome, they have the

Queens and Toronto) for the Inter-collegiate championship of Canada. If
Vancouver wins tomorrow they may

Permit me to say that the Big Four
League assumes no responsibility for
the conflicting date. Their schedule
of tames, dates and parks was drawn
UP and published early ln September
ahd this is simply a mistake for which
neither of the varsity clubs ia responsible. They should see that It
does not occur again.
Who would not like to see both
tames? It happens to be my preference to see the men of Dr. Burke
and Norm Burley battle their way
through their most crucial game,
and Win the Upton Cup. It wll lbe the
Ssafest battle in all history!    (This

It will never be my habit to urge
people to go to University games,
even McKechnie Cup gomes. It students don't wont to go, they should
stay away. I don't believe in compulsory games—which seems to me a
contradiction In terms—and I believe
even less In compulsory or merely du*
tiful attendance. Hearty noise and enthusiasm I love, but I haven't much
stomach for organised ballyq-hoo,
though It does "pay," especially with
vulgar people and vulgar things. For
myself, I want to go to the McKechnie Game and I shall certainly enjoy
myself at it unless times have
That game ls the oldest and most
Important tradition ln B. C. sport. It
is likewise the nearest approach to an
effective tradition in sport at U.B.C.
In the last ten years our teams have
furnished, in the main, the chief interest of the series. They have usually played well, but even when they
played badly, they have habitually
been able to play better in the last
five minutes than at the beginning,
That is good to nee, even in defeat.
Besides, English Rugby is still tbe
King of Manly Sports. It Is a game,
not a mere public clrous. Its traditional methoda of training still re*
main the sound and rational meth*
ods—for games, that is, though not
for professional businesses. It has
variety, risk, oolor, skill, and surprise,
all ot whioh things are the essence of
sport. These are the reasons why I
am going to Brockton Point on Saturday afternoon if by that time I am
still sound of wind and limb.
First Soccer to Meet
NorthVan. Ex-High
Next Saturday at 2:48 Varsity's
Soccer hopefuls tangle with North
Vancouver Ex-High at Kerrisdale
Park. The game promises to be an
excellent one and a good turn-out of
students is expected.
The play of Varsity last Saturday
was most encouraging and their form
at the mid-week practice even more
so. in Ferguson, Varsity have a find.
Never given much chance to shine before, his work in the game last week
left little to be desired. He has one
fault; he uses his feet when he should
use his hands. The backs are improving steadily, especially Allan. The
half-backs are good; they perform the
difficult double task of offense and
defense as well as the best ln the
league. Their well-placed kicks to the
forwards have been good, and Improvements in the forward department
Itself causes much optimism.
During the season the combination
of the forwards has been rather poor
but their most striking weakness was
in front of the goal. There they would
wilt utterly and miss chance after
chance to score. Two hard practices
and a game, howover. have wrought
a vast change, and they should win
this time.
Var.slty'ii teum for Saturday will be
chosen from Ferguson. Allan, Mitchell,
H. Wright, Newall. Hyndman, 13.
Wright, Partridge, Rigby, Chalmers,
Todd and Cooke.
To-morrow, Varsity II. Soccerites
tangle with Riverview at Dunbar Park.
The students are in no way discouraged by their previous lapses. The
team is settling down regularly now,
the only department giving trouble
being the forwards. The Collegians'
defense should be unbeatable. With
Smith back in form having a good
partner in Pollock arid three reliable
half-backs ln front of them, the U.B.C.
back division has nothing to fear.
The forwards bave a different tale
to tell. Manager Smith and Captain
Miles are already grey with worry
caused by the Varsity sharp (?)
shooters, England, the students' sole
reliable forward will be out for a
point or two and with decent support
should lead the line to the goal.
The team will be picked from McGregor, Smith, Pollock, Sanderson,
Miles, King, Yolland, Roberts, McKol-
ler, Wiles, Strelght, Hutcheson, England and Freeman.
That the women will only have
three events ln the track meet was
decided at a meeting of the executives
and class athletic representatives on
Monday noon In Arts 100. Theso
events will consist of a relay of four
girls, the ono hundred-yard dash and
the high Jump. Whether or not thoy
will tako part in the Indoor Track
meet to be he'd ln November, will be
decided by the number of girls who
sign the notice posted in the Lower
Arts Hall.
Arts' 30 Road Race

force. Passing the Administration
building lt seemed as though Dunn
were actually gaining on Selby, but
the inevitable incline made It an Impossibility. Selby forged ahead ln a
magnificent way, and it was apparent
that victory was in his handB. Topping tho hill, Dunn seemed exhausted
but never for an instant did he relax
his pace. At a short distance behind
Thornber, like Selby, had drawn ahead
of Carey and their battle was aS Intensely interesting as the leaders.
A hush of anticipation fell over the
spectators, and then a sudden roar
greeted the flrst figure to sppear
around the Agricultural building on
the last stretch, lt was rumoured that
Dunn had succeeded In out-running
Selby, but every doubt was soon dispelled.
Selby, after having run an extraordinary fine race, spurted to victory
in 16 minutes, 4 seconds, amid the up-
roartoUB acknowledgment of all concerned. Dunn followed, beaten, but
cheerful, in 15.15 seconds. He also
ran a splendid race. Carey was next,
having beaten Thornber in the last
100 yards. As each runner came In
he was greeted with generous applause
and the enthusiasm showed by everyone was unbounded, no less being
evinced by Percy Williams, whose
familiar figure was a welcome sight
amongst the spectators. The race was
a treat both for the supporters of
the victorious team and those who
were defeated, being a fine example
of perseverance ind sportsmanship.
The results were as follows)
Selby. Dunn, dary, Thornber, Ham-
mett, King, Root, Thein, McMullen,
Leeson, Oookburp, Edwards, Ward,
Lltch, Dobson, Swanell, Klngley, Valentine.
Feather-Pushers Win
On North Shore
Varsity "A" team Journeyed to
North Vanoouver Wednesday evening
and gave the North Shore players a
better run for their money than they
expected. The ftaal score was 17*7 ln
favor of Varsity.
Players on the "A" team were:
Misses Helen Matheson, Bather Eddy,
Jean Russell, Margaret Lyle and
Messrs. Jaok Sparks, Nic Solly, Vecy
Fernie and Terrence Holmes.
Outlook Bright For
Women Hockeyists
Varsity's first women's grass hockey
team clash with Britannia High
School in the Senior League game at
Connaught Park at 8:45 on Saturday
morning. The game promises to be
a good one, as Britannia is leading the
league and Varsity's team will be even
stronger than the one which beat
Kitsilano on October 20. As Kitsilano
beat Britannia in an earlier game,
there is a good chance of Varsity winning.
The lalf-back line has improved
greatly and the forwards have at last
developed a real combination. The
line-up will be the some aa against
Kitsilano except that Carol Sellars,
Inside forward, will again be playing.
Players on both first and second
teama will meet to-day at 8 o'clock in
the Lower Common Room before going out to practise.
