SWEEPING CHANGES IN CONSTITUTION FACE A.M.S.
Meeting Called For Friday
To Discuss Finance Report

Kmliciil cIiiiiikch to tlie constitution of thu Alma Mater* Society
net' involved in the rccomrnemlationH of thu Finanuo Committee,
whioh will bo promoted to thu Ntudonts for discussion at a general
meeting of tho A. M. 8. in tho Auditorium, Friday noon, at 12.15.
The report cornea hm n result of tho work of Alex Smith, Hugh
Morrison, and Arnold HendorNon who wero appointed by Students'
Council in October to Investigate conditions of the Alma Mater
Society. This committee has been working since October on ita report, and when it was finally submitted to Students' Council the
hitter discussed it for over 15 hours hefore finally amending oer-
tnin clauses, deleting others, and endorsing the report as amended,
Certain clauses were deemed necessary for student discussion
hefore being officially endorsed by the Alma Mater Society, These
radical clauses will bo discussed Friday.
New Manager System
Te Replace Present
JUteged Laxity?
Certain findings of the Finance Committee were not endorsed by tho Students' Counoil. lt wae folt that these
natters Involved such great changes
that they required the endorsement of
the students themselves. Following
tl the report which was not endorsed
hy Council:
FURTHER RIOOMMBNDATIONI
In presenting this report we have
considered the primary clause In the
previous   Financial   Committee's   re*
port regarding the appointment of a
Said employee of the Alma Mater
oclety. It was suggested that we
consider the appointment of either a
treasurer, secretary, business manager, or curator-bookkeeper as best
suited to our needs. Because at that
time the conditions were such that
there was much need for the work of
the curator to be completely reorganised, they recommended that a curator
he appointed tor this year. This work
ll now organised In such s, manner
that with a little co-operation from tho
itudenti, a sophomore or junior could
carry on the duties of curator without
being paid more than the expenses incurred by his offloe.
The present system of conducting
business has been admitted a failure
and because of that, this Committee
was appointed, "to investigate the
1 Internal conditions ot the business of
the Alma Mater Society, wtth the view
of bringing in recommendations for
changes In policy to keep pnee with
the development of activities of the
student body." Our detailed survey
which was carried on Over the Christmas Holidays, covered the reports,
books, etc. ot 1026-1087 and 1927-1928,
which shows that our preaent system
lacks: (1) a centralized guiding force;
(2) permanency; (3) responsibility;
and (4) co-operation. Because of the
following two reasons the system of
financing is lax: (1) there Is usually
only one person on the Students' Council who has a detailed knowledge of
the particular matter under discussion,
and (2) this one person might be biased, Furthermore, the system Is not
consistent Inasmuch us certain branches of the Alma Mater Society are permitted to hundlo their own lliiance*,,

The annual cross-country race this
year at Varsity will bring togothvr the
old rivals—Selby, Bunno and Chappell; over a course which will tax
each man to Ihe utmost. Two and a
half miles of snow and Ice will comprise the course on Wednesday at
8:1ft for the most exciting and nerve-
racking race ever Indulged in by the
Varsity students. The race will bo
run, rain or shine.
The entries have been pouring in
like water and the most notable of
these Include Thornber, Carey, Hammett, Terry, MoDiarmid, Munn, King
and the three leaders. These men
all ran well In the Arts '3ft Road Race
and it Is a matter of considerable dis-
cubsIoii as to which one will carry off
tbe honors in this race.
Last year Jack Chappell won the
race from a Held ot thirty entrants.
The finish was watched by a large and
Interested crowd and the enthusiasm
this year is at least equal to that of
last year.
Another matter of Interest is the
rumor that the class of Arts '31 will
bo putting up a trophy for the winning
team. 10 points to count for the llrst
man In, then 9 etc., until the tlrst ton
men are home. This ls calculated to
add a great deal to the already largo
Interest ln the race.
FROSH PARTICIPATE IN
INITIAL DANCE
Lester Court, proverbial home of
the Frosh, again echoed to the din
af enthusiastic voices as the Freshmen glided around the floor at their
flrst class party on Saturday night.
Though at llrst upper classmen
seemed to dominate the hall, the
Freshmen arrivlug late came with a
rush to uphold the honor of their
olass In having the majority present
at their dance.
Tho Club Royal orchestra supplied
music, and with such numbers as
"Bally of My Dream," "Jeanne" and
"Ten Little Miles from Town" for
the cavorting of the Infants und their
more serious sonior guests. Every-
one "dragged," and waltsod until the
call of supper turned the dancers into a hurrying horde that swarmed
with maglc-llko rapidity into the
dining room where students turned
amateur waiters nnd liberally poured
coffee not only lu the cups hut. gave
some to the Boor. At tho mention of
Ice-cream a veritable "Bartholomew's
Day" took place as the Icecream
cups were slaughtered.
The hall was decorated wilh similiters of blue and gold, evergreen
brandies and small lantern* These
however received scant attention of
tho crowd that employed every possible moment wtth dancing.
Patrons and patronesses were:
Dean Hollert, President uud Mrs,
Kllnk, Dean and Mrs. Buchanan,
Denn and Mrs. Hrock, Professor and
Mrs, Angus and Dr. Shrum.

Meraioiiias Defeat Senior
"A" women
Varsity hoop stars went down to a
23-30 defeat when the Senior "A" women clashed with the strong Meraloma team, on Saturday night at the
V. A. C. gym, This gamo gives Meralomas a clear lead in the Senior "A"
league, with the Felixes a close second and Varsity third.
Meralomas hud the edge all the way
through. Varstty failed to get going
properly and If they did get a chance
for a basket they fumbled or missed
It. The student team was not up to
standard and also had bad luck. Meralomas, on the other hand, were play
Ing real basketball. Rettie Tingley was tho star for Varsity and was
responsible for many good tactical
plays.
In the first quarter, the teams were
fairly evenly matched, neither sido
displaying brilliance. At quarter time,
Meralomas had a 7-6 load.
The second period wus much the
snme at the first. Varsity scored a
free nhot while Meralomas chalked up
three baskets, The half time whistle
blew with  Morulotnns ahead   1II-7.
In the third quarter Meralomas began to piny In earnest. Varsity could!
not check the swift onrush of the Meraloma team. The last period was a
thriller. Varsity rallied desperately
and managed to bring tho score up
20-2.1 largely due to, the good playing
of Rettie Tingley. The final whistle
blew with Varsity vangulshed 23-20,
Varsity Senior "A" women wtll tako
on the V. A. C. Felixes, to-night at 8
o'clock In tho V. A. C. gym. This
game ought to bo well worth seeing
as the teams aro evenly matched.
If the co-eds win this game they
will have a second place tie with the
Felixes In tho Senior "A" league.

BASKETERS DROP GAME TO
ISLAND INVADERS
Defeated by the Victoria basketball
team, the Varsity Senior "fl" women
staged their most thrilling match of
tho season on Frtday night at the V.
A. C. gym. Tho game was fust and
hard fought from beginning to end,
both teams spurred on by the staunch
support trom sidelines. Although
tho co-eds were above the mark the
visiting toam proved too strong for
them.
Wllma Watson starred on the Senior "B" tenm playing a spectacular
game. Her fast, running, passing and
straight shooting did much to help
the Vnslty score. Lois Toutellotto
also played exceptionally well throughout.
The game started with Victoria
scoring the tlrst basket, Helen
Magulre, who wns playing well, netted
the tlrst basket for Varsity while the
Victoria team chalked up eight points
In Ihe llrst quarters, When the first
time whistle blew the score stood H-
a In Victoria's favor,
The second quarter was even more
exciting. Varsity checking hard ami
both teama being able to score only
two points each. I<ols Tourtellotte
worked well |,i this quarter but could
not score, Then Wllma Watson, taking the ball from Varslty'M end of the
floor, ilnshiu1 lo the other end and
scored n basket. Victoria was still
lu the lend  llll at half time.
lu Ihe second half the game was
not quite n.i closelv contested. The
co-eds illil not watch their checks as
citreriilly and Victoria managnd to
net two baskets to Varsity's one, In

Last spring a comittee composed
of Bill Thompson, Gaundry Phillips,
Howard Nicholson, Les Brown, Roes
Tolmie, Russ Munn, and Bill Master*
ion was appointed to investigate eon*
ditlons of the Alma Mater Sooiety.
This committee investigated basic
wrongs and recommended that another committee be appointed. The
result was the formation of the pros*
ent Flnanco Committee whoso report
Is now submitted.
Other business to be considered ta
the endorsement of the following
motion:
"That tho Board of Governors of
tho I'niverslty of British Columbia
be and they are hereby requested to
pay over each year to The Toronto
General Trusts Corporation or to
tho Trustee for the time being under
the Trust Deed securing payment ot
moneys borrowed by the Alma Mater
Society for the purpose of erecting
a building for gymnasium and
other athletic activities out of sucb
feus as are collected for the use ot
the Alma Mater Society, being the
student and alumni organisation having charge of student and alumni activities of The University of British
Columbia, the sum of Three Dollars
for each full undergraduate registered as such on the Register of The
Cnlverslty of nrltlsh Columbln, and
that, such payment by the Board of
Governors of The University of British Columbia continue so long ar. any
moneys secured hy the said Trust
Deeil   remain   unpaid."
Following is the report of the
Finance Committee as amended and
endorsed by Students' Council with
the Introduction attached:
This committee composed of Alex
Smith, Hugh Morrison and Arnold
Henderson was appointed by the Students' Council to complete the work
of the Finance Committee which was
appointed at the closo of the Spring
Term, 1928, "to Investigate the Internal conditions of the business of the
Alma Muter Society with a view of
bringing tn recommendations for
changes in policy to keep pace with
the development of activities of the
Student. Body," but which waa unable
to make a complete report owing to
the books not being available. The
present committee has gone Into the
boor»ts and flies of tho Alma Mater
Society and subsidiary organisations,
placing the most of their work on
the reports of 1(128-27 and 1927-28.
Though some of the following suggestions nnd recommendation* do not
apply dlr*otly to flnanco, It is believed that thoy will, Indirectly, aid some
of the many activities ot U. B. C.
(1)    ITEMIZATION
We recommend:    (a)   That   every
expenditure   and   every   receipt   bo
(hunted or credited  to a  particular
branch of activity of the club.
(b) That a system of notation be
adopted to save time and space,
le) That this symbol appear on
the check stubs, ledgers, budgets,
bills, ami any report connected therewith.
(2)    ECONOMY
We    recommend:    («>     That the

BIQQER ANO BETTER HANDBOOKS
In an attempt to provide a more complete and instructive
handbook than has been issued in the past, tho Publications Hoard
has decided to commence work on next year's handbook in the near
future. This will enable the handbook staff to investigate and study
university opinion as to what constitutes a desirablo handbook.
Consequently co-operation of the students is requested nnd all suggestions either from individuals or organizations will bo welcome.
Announcement will be made concerning the appointment of the
handbook editor at a later date in the Ubyssey.
THE IMPERIAL CONFERENCE OF
UNIVERSITY STUDENTS
In recent years various efforts have been made from time to
time to bring about closer contact between university students
through Canada and the Empire. Conferences havo been held at
which representatives of student organizations have discussed mutters of vital importance in student life, and ns a result momentous
decisions have been reached regarding the conduct of student affairs.
The most noteworthy conference from the standpoint of British students was convened at Oxford and Cambridge in 1924, when
representatives from various universities in the Empire met to discuss matters of common interest. Of such value was this assembly
to the representatives who attended that it was decided unanimously
to make the event quadrennial.
This year, as a result of an invitation issued by the session of
the National Federation of Canadian University Students in 1927,
the second Imperial Conference will be held at Montreal early in
September. The meeting will discuss such matters as student exchanges and tours, student, publications, openings for post-graduate
work and other questions of paramount importance in university
life.
The advantages of a representative assembly of such nature nre
too obvious to require elucidation. It is of particular value to a
young institution to come in close contact with the culture of older
universities, antl it is greatly to be desired that U. 13. C. should be
adequately represented at the forthcoming conference.
The graduates of this university have individually distinguished
themselves throughout the Empire, but never before has U. B. C.
been given an opportunity to meet formally representatives from
universities outside Canada or the United States.
"We hope, therefore, thnt this unusually interesting conference
will number among its members a student .from this university who
will be able fully to express and clearly to interpret the ideals nnd
traditions of U. B. C.
CHESSITES STAGE FURIOUS
MATCH IN COMMON ROOM
The Chess Tournaments, at present
occupying the Upper Common Room,
have been progressing feverishly. The
entrants ln the Championship maintain a certain amount of decorum befitting their position but the participants In the Minor tourney are apparently striving to break all speed
records.
In the Championship, Cecil Yar-
wood of Agriculture Is at present to
the front, having won all four games
played so far. Following him Is
R. A. Pllkington, having won three
games and drawn one. Tho rest of
the players are close behind. At
such an early date, no reliable forecast of the result can be made.
Tbe Minor Tournament so far has
been more remarkable for its celerity than the soundness of the play.
J, Davidson is well in the lead, having lost but one game. Russ Kin-
ninmont, who defeated Davidson, is
running in second place, with only one
Iobs and two draws chalked up
against him. The speed-king of tho
tourney ts McEachern who has played
sixteen of his seventeen gamos.
It Is hoped to finish both tournaments by next week, when the annual match with the Faculty la due
to take place.
Arts '31 will hold a class meeting
in Applied Science 100, Thursday at
12.10 sharp. This meeting ls of
great Importance since a quorum ot
Sophomores ls needed to decide the
question of a commemorative gift. Dr,
Sage wtll speak on the subject and
advise the class in this matter.
GROUP OF SEVEN EXPLAINED
TO ART CLUB BY SPEAKER
Mr. Varley, of the B. C. Art School,
was the speaker at the meeting of the
Art Club held Thursday evening at
the homo of Mrs. H. A. McEwan. Mr,
Vnrley is an exponent of the Group of
Seven, and as such, discussed the desire of the younger school to develop a technique which emphasizes the
impression and not the mechanics of
the art of painting. The subject is
extremely interesting and many or the
members are anxious to try the modern technique. Tho next meeting will
be held at the Vanderpartt galleries,
February 21, 8 p.m., when Mr. Vander-
pant will discuss the modern aspect
of pictorial photography.
S.C.M. SERVICE AT WESLEY CHURCH
A special service by students and
for students will be held at Wesley
Church on Sunday evening, February
17. The speaker will be Mr. Harry
Avlson, secretary of tho Student
Christian Movement for western Canada. Mr. Avlson graduated from McOlll University In 1922, and since that
time has been president of the S.C.M.
movement ln that Institution, His subject Sunday evening will bo "The Rediscovery of Religion."
A special section of the church will
be reserved for stutlonts, and It Is
hoped that a representative audience
will welcome the speaker.
NOTICE
Varsity ties have been obtained and
may be procured at the Curator's Office for 11.50. Only a limited number
have been purchased bo students are
advised to apply early.
Finance Committee Report
In this issue we print the report of the Finance Committee as amended and endorsed by the Students' Council,
and also the portion of the report which has not yet received
tho endorsement of Council. The whole of this report will
be open for discussion at the Alma Mater meeting on Friday.
On tho whole this report shows a thoroughness and impartiality which represents work, true investigation, and an
honest desire to better tho business conditions of the Alma
Mater Society. We feel wo are voicing tho opinion of the
whole student body when we say the Finance Committee has
done its work well.
Like other reports of this nature, however, this one eon*
thins certain clauses whieh might better be d/elctod or
changed, and perhaps there are some omissions.
I.ot us first consider the report as amended and endorsed
by Students' Council. The Ubyssey gives its whole*ho«rted
support to clauses (f), (g), (h), (i), and (j) under Alma
Muter Meetings," We believe the whole student body should
be encouraged more than they have been to decide their own
policy.
Section (10) "Mamooks Club," clause (i), recommends
"That the Mamooks Club prepare a report to be followed in
tho publication of a better Handbook." Wo ask that recommend" replace the word "prepare." Wo also refuse to
accept official representation on the executive of the Mamooks
Club as suggested in clause (b). Tho Publications board refuses to be the "mouthpiece" of any organization, and we
have no desire to aot as controllers of the Mamooks Club.
We believe that clauses (a) and (b) under section (11)
"Publicity" should be deleted. " "Undesired publicity"
is sometimes tho truth. Wo maintain that the truth should
not be withheld from tho reading public, even whon it may
harm our university. Surely wo can answer for our actions.
Clause (b) is "bilge," and if Students' Council attempts to
prevent students from explaining their own actions it would
bo contrary to all university ideals. We agree, however,
that students should be held responsible for what they say or
print.
We support the clause that, coaches should be allowed
expenses. Providing all activities aro represented we advocate that coaches be paid salaries.
Concerning tho suggested "Manager System" there is
much to bo said both for and against. Would it be bettor
to continue as things are at present, or should there be the
suggested business manager? These questions are difficult
to answer.
According to the Finance Committee the present system
of finance has failed becnuse it lacks a centralized guiding
force, permanency, responsibility, and co-operation, and this
in turn may be due to ignorance of affairs o'r biased opinion;
Several people have agreed that the present system of finance
is a failure. We feel we are voicing student opinion when
we say that it is time somothing was done to better the existing financial system.
If the proposed manager system were adopted it would
certainly tighten up the loop-holes through which the money
of the A. M. S. is sometimes allowed to escape. Further,
both centralized control and direct responsibility would then
be possible. Permanency would be improved by such a stable
organization, with the proposed Finance Executive training
various managers and their assistants in the work of the
manager system. Obviously co-operation would be improved
with the functioning of such an executive where all activities are represented. In short, we believe adoption of the
prposed manager system would do much to better conditions
at V. B. C so long as the head of this system is always responsible to the Alma Mater Society.
The proposed salary of $'2,">0 per year, we believe would
more t Ii ii t i pay I'or itself rrom tlie resulting economy, and it
would place a greater sense of responsibility on the business
manager.
Concerning the appointment of the business manager
we would suggest that candidates be required to pass special examinations pertaining to tho work, while seniority und
experience would play their part.
The old system has proved inadequate. Why not try tho
new ?
€ht Dhole tout
How often lt happens that one's
pen runs dry just when one has
much writing to do! Perhaps this
occurs ln the library where you are
making extracts from a reference
book, or are composing an essay. Ink
you must have and you therefore set
forth in quest of this precious fluid.
By politely approaching several per*
sons and stopping to chat a tew min*
utes with each, and thus attracting
the attention of the desk elerk who
oomes over and conscientiously reprimands you, making you the cynosure ot all in the room, you get roar
rubber sac filled and return shame*
facedly to your studies.
I have no sympathy for you. During the period o( fremlod activity
which precedes examinations there
may and often does come about an
ink famine, when the owner of a
bottle, tf ho wish to keep It long, Is
well advised to hide his property
from public gate. Having suffered
greatly from the depredations, for
such I regard them, of many friends
and acquaintances and others, upon
my bottle, whieh was drained to the
drop, and actuated by a desire to
make the lot of my fellows easier
than at present, I suggest to the
Students' Council that a trough for*
thirsty pens might be a humanitarian piece of legislation.
Is it any wonder that there are so
many violations of the laws against
speeding whon advertisements ot
automobiles proclaims for them
speeds of 60, 70, 80, and up to Ut
miles an hour? This is really pan*
derlng to the American passion for
hurry.
Suppose Mr. Motorist does save
four minutes on his way home ln the
evening, what good does lt do him?
Is time so valuable that he need risk
his own life and that of others In hla
mad rush to reach his destination?
And does he require a 100 horse
power car to transport him?
It has always seemed peculiar to
me that though movies shown in B.
C. are subject to censorship and are
thoroughly expurgated, vaudeville acts
are free from surveillance. Quite
often In both the Pantages and
Orpheum things are said and done
on the stage which must be embarrassing for the cultured persons
among the audience. I honestly be*
Heve moet ot those present enjoy
the suggestiveness and vulgarity that
characterise many ot the so-called
acts. But there are a puritanical few
to whom these bra-en breaches of
good taste are nauseating. The
marvel of It all ls that the Ministerial Association or the Local Council
of Women hasn't seen to the matter
long ago.

College Ciceroes Castigate
Rural Rhetoricians
On Friday evening Varsity debaters
defeated the Mount Lehman Debating
Society in a stiff encounter. Mount
Lehman was supported by Mr. Trop-
per a graduate of Arts '24, and Reverend Moses, Theology graduate of '28.
The negative side of the debate was
upheld by Earl Vance and Charles
Gillespie. Mr. Farber wan in tho
chair.
The topic under discussion was,
"Resolved that National foreign blocks
aro In tho best Interests of the Canadian people." Mr. Tropper leading
tho ufnmatlvo pointed out how the
richness of a nation depended on Its
variety of types, this ho compared to
tho   ancient   Greek   empire.
Mr. Moses went on to say that each
type Is necessary to build up a strong
nation and that the block system was
the way In which this could bo accomplished. He then continued to show
how It could ho applied to Canada.
Vance and GlileHple Illustrated that
there are two examples of the block
system already In existence In Canada which were not successful and
stated that if other national foreign
blocks were introduced they too would
be a failure.
Library Reprimands
Well Known Students
"Sign these cards, please, and return them to the Librarian in charge,"
was the fateful sentence received by
Orevllle Rowland, president L. S. Ji„
Students' Council, and Doug. Pollock
while conversing ln the Library last
Friday. In pronouncing these words
amid the surprised stares of the nearby students the assistant librarian
presented the gentlemen In quostton
with two pink slips, representative of
a misdemeanor committed within the
precincts of the Library reading
rooms.
In an endeavor to procure a more
studious conduct In the Library, December last, tho Library Committee
decided to Inaugurate the system of
reprimanding those creating a disturbance in the reading room. This
decision was tho reason why ono of
the after Christmas surprises for the
returning students was the army of
green cards present on every reading
table In the Library. These cards
bore an extract from the calendar regarding the conduct, required of those
using the Library.
A month after Its Inauguration this
ruling began to take definite effect
and the aforementioned victims became the recipients of the first two
cards  presented.

Dear Sir:
Regarding the sentence passed by
the Students' Court on Mr. R. G.
Grlffls on February 2nd.
After hearing the evidence and Mr.
Orlffls' own statements, the Court
passed the following motion:
"In view of the fact that Mr. Robert
Grlffis was admittedly guilty
of disorderly conduct and total disregard of property and windows of
the University, we hereby impose
a fine of Five Dollars to be paid
by the aforesaid to the Treasurer
of the A, M. S. by noon ot February 6th, 1929."
This decision wns read to Mr. Orlffls, the only change being the use of
the second person Instead of tho
third, and the question wns asked,
"Hove you anything to say?" Mr,
0riff)s did not protest against the
sentence at that time, and he paid
tho fine immediately.
Regarding the publication of the
sentence, it was Councils' expressed
wish that you do so.
Yours very truly,
J. R. TOLMIB.

The Kdltor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
From what I have seen and heard
of late I have gathered that what you
want for the columns of your paper
Is correspondence. Consequently, as
you might guess, I am making my first
attempt. The other day there was occasion for me to enter the precincts
of your worthy Pub. Office, and what a
sight met my eyes! The floor was
littered with paper of every description. Plaster was knocked off the
walls ln several places. One of your
associates was making a valiant attempt co keep the radiator from catching a chill. While you yourself were
engaged in a tussle with another of
the inmates over a matter of no moment. In short, the whole office presented the aspect of some such place
as a Men's Common Room. May I
ask, is it too early to start Spring
cleaning? Someone suggested that
you hire a janitor to attend to your
domicile exclusively. In fact, I might
even accept the position myself. Try
to imagine the possibilities of such a
scheme. If you would accept the help
of the extra janitor you might even
produce more sensible editorials!
Yours as ever,
"OSWALD."
P.S. This hardly merits one of
your valuable "we print this for what
It is worths."
Editor's Note:—We do not print this
letter tor what it is worth. From his
remark about our editorials, readers
may gathor that Oswald belongs to a
fraternity We shall not break faith
with tho writer by disclosing either
his name or the name of his fraternity,
but suggest that if Oswald ls serious
in his desire for a more orderly Pub.
office, he remove "common room"
influences from the editor by ejecting
from the Pub. all of his rowdy fraternity brothers, and make lt clear to
them (ns we havo tried to do In our
editorial columns) that the Ubyssey
office Is not a fraternity house. In tlie
meantime wo would be obliged to Oswald if he would point out to us
through our correspondence columns
In what way our editorials could be
more sensible.
ln Canada, ls far more deserving of a
Big Block than many who do now
qualify in our "Major Sports." At present there are so many issued that
there is not sufficient honor connected
with it to gain the desired recognition,
ou our own campus.
The method suggested of selecting
the athletes Is as follows: The coaches
in conjunction with the club would
select the participants In their sport,
with the exception of Big Block men,
in order of merit. These lists
would then go before (he "Big Block
Club." Bach of tho members would
select ton. These would go before
"The Awards Committee" composed ot
two members from the Faculty, two
from the Alumni, two from the Big
Block Club, and tho President of the
Dig Block Club who acts as chairman,
This committee would total the votes
for tutith candidate, and the result of
this would not be made known. They
would then select a number not to
exceed ten athletic awards, These
awards would then be presented to the
Men's Athletic Association for approval.
The Big Block Club would be started by selecting ten ot the present under graduate holders ot Big Blocks
who are outstanding athletes. These
would consider immediately the undergraduate holders of Big Blocks attending University. This would constitute
the Club who would select ten new
men at the end of the year.
This matter has been under consideration for some time and the Men's
Athletic Executive are presenting it
as a possible solution to our letter
awards problem. However the meeting ts called lu such a manner to permit free discussion. It is hoped that
members of Men's Athletic Association will think about the details of
"Letter Awards" before this meeting
to save time in the discussion.
Trusting this will clear up some
misunderstanding regarding this, I
remain,
Respectively yours,
A. E. HENDERSON
Editor of Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
Regarding the proposed change in
letter awards.
in granting awards we must first
consider for 'what reasons are the
awards to be made. In "Letter
Awards" the reasons suggested were:
For outstanding athletic ability,
judged us a team-man rather than an
Individual star, judged by hts ability
to make the team any year, judged by
men on other teams competing In that
sport; further consideration!) being
training spirit and sportsmanship.
These reasons were selected bocause
an award under such a system would
be appreciated by the wlnnor, honored
by other athletes, and recognized and
respected by everyone. Furthermore
the standard of athletics is unquestionably Judged by the callhro of men to
whom an Institution gives Its highest
athletic award.
If tbe above reasons are those which
wo desire to give our uwards the present system should be changed. Tho
time played should not be the vital
consideration, for the fewer the men
front the previous year, the less seasoned the team will he, and thus n tendency to lower calibre than In other
years, yet there will be a greater number of awards Issued. Under tho pros-
cut system It Is quite possible for do
serving athletes to full to qualify because of Injuries, nnd an undeserving
athlete to qualify for want of better
playei'H, Also t.io granting of big
blocks to certain sports only ls unfair, a man whose athletic ability In
tennis, swimming, boxing, rowing,
golf, etc., ranks him amongst the best
The Editor of the Ubyssey.
near Sir:
In reply to the letter of Horatlus
of the last tesue perhaps a few things
for his enllghtment might not be out
of place.
(1) Two bouncers wore not "hlrod
aud paid to help out thoso without
tickets."
One doorkeeper for tho senior ball
was Instructed to keep out gate
crashers, who were not bona fide
members of tha senior year. The
class president has not "failed lamentably" In admitting a member of the
senior year who has paid class fees.
(2) Any objections to the draw
should have been made by a member of the class at the time of the
draw and not after the senior party
by some knocker hiding behind a
pen-name.
(8) How crashing Hi-Jinks subtracts from the executive ability of
the President or reflects on the other
members of tho executive Horatlus
fails to explain.
If Horatlus is a member of the
Senior Class and Is expressing a
general opinion It would bo well to
call a meeting to determine the attitude of the class. If Horatlus Is
not a membor of the Senior year could
we be so humble as to suggest that
he permit us to handle our own at
fairs.

WARREN SUGGESTS TGLMIE
AS SUCCESSOR TO LEAGUE
WORK AT OXFORD
Harry Warren, U. B. C. Rhodes
echolar now at Oxford, In a letter to
Ross Tolmie makes a strong appeal
to the Universities of the Dominion to take their proper share ln the
activities of the League of Nations.
Warren Is chairman of the Dominion Sub-Committee, which Is affiliated
with the British Universities League
ot Nations Society, and which has
for its purpose the formation ot
League ot Nations Societies in the
various Universities of the Dominions
nnd India. With the best Interests
of Canada, and more particularly
British Columbia, In mind Warren
makes tho suggestion (hat he nominate Mr. Tolmie for the chairmanship of the Dominions Bub-Committee
to succeod himself in order thnt this
University may have tho honor of
being represented In the highest office of the committee during two successive years.
This Is the letter:
Dear Tolmie,
Congratulations! I am sending
this to you personally because I am
anxious that B. C. should be the first
to take her place among Canadian
Universities in this reoent development.
In this connection would you like
me to nominate you for the Committee as my successor? I would be only too glad to do so and it would be
nice to seo B. C. representing Canada for two years In succession.
The Conferences at Geneva are
well worth while and I recommend
you to try and work me ln during
your Btay In Oxford.
I follow all the University news as
ulosely as I can and a U. B. C. success means as much to me as it does
to any of you I
Best wishes for success
from
Yours sincerely.
HARRY V. WARREN.
In a statement accompanying the
letter Warren outlines the work of
the Dominion Sub-Committee. It consists of representatives from Canada,
New Zealand, Australia. Irish Free
State. South Africa, and India. The
manifest interest taken in International affairs by students from the
Dominions studying In Europe suggested that students at home might
tako a similar interest if the op-
nortunltv for study presented itself.
The real reason for the formation of
the Committee was quite different
howover. It was. in Warren's words,
In response to "an international demand that Dominion students should
take their place beside the students
of the other countries In the world
In their activities relating to the
League of Nations,"
tmiVERSin SUPPORT NiEOED
Accordingly the Dominion Sub-
Committee, formed by and affiliated
with the British Universities League
of Nations Society, has begun its
work of arousing student Interest in
the League. The first nten Is "to
get. Into touch with some body In the
universities of each Dominion, which
will concern Itsolf, either wholly or
In part, with the League nf Nations."
The next step would be tho formation of a National Universities League
of Nations Socletv, similar to the
Hrltlsh Society In Kngland. This
national body would be affiliated
with the Federation Universale International pour la 8oclete des Nations, which Is a central, international
organization with which all student
societies rendering support to the
League are affiliated.
DOMINIONS LACK R PRESENTATION
These steps, besides being desirable in themselves, appear to Involve
tho honour of the Dominions. At a
recent meeting of the Federatlonal
Universale International the British
Leaugue Society was asked if it
could take steps In getting the representation of the Dominions ln the
Federation International. In velw of
the fact that all the large countries
as well as some very small countries
send delegates to the Federation International, and also that the Dom-
Inons sond delegates to the League
of Nations Itself, it was pointed out
that the Dominions have no official
student support In the activities of
the League. Therefore unless the
Km pirn wishes to appear deficient lit
a desire for Universal Peace In the
eyes of the world It ls necessary
that the steps outlined be undertaken. Warren closes his statement,:
"We do know that the Interest we
feel In this subject lis shared by
lnrge numbers of other Dominion
studentH lu Europe; and we hope
that a similar Interest exists In the
universities of tho Dominions, nnd
that this appeal may find some response."

STATE U. GIVES VIEWS
ON FRATERNITIES
Columbus, Ohio. — "Resolved. Thnt
Fraternities and Sororities at State
Universities Should bo Abolished."
This ls the subject that Indiana and
Ohio State co-eds will debate shortly.
Ohio Slate's affirmative team goes to
Indiana and the negative debates in
the Chapel.
Interesting arguments thai will be
advanced by the affirmative team ut
Indiana rollow:
Miss Whitney Is non-sororlty girl
but both Miss Hollimbaclmr and Miss
MeCall are members of Kappa l>«»ltu
Sorority. Miss Ilolttnlmchei' says. "I
am convinced that we are boiler off
without them. Undoubtedly ll every
one had made as thorough a study oi
the subject as we have Ihey would
be Just as convinced as we are now.
"One of Ihe most important,points
we are stressing Is that un account ol
fraternity life there are three important groups harmed, the student who
Is a fraternity member, the student
who Is not a fraternity member, ami
the University itself," sho said.
"The non-fraternity man tends to
develop an Inferiority complex, and
to feel very much out of things. Ho
also finds It difficult to get Into any
worth while organizations and finds
all Imoprtant offices and duties filled
by fraternity people," she said.
Syracuse Dean Raps
Modern College dirt
Although the modern college girl
ls intelligent, cultured, capable and
industrious, she Is not a great success as a home-maker, wife aud mother.
This opinion Is one advanced by
Prof. Annie Louise MacLeod, dean ot
the college of home economics at Syracuse university.
"Young women must change their
attitude toward domesticity -before
they oan be happy and efficient in their
homes, declared Professor Macleod at
a recent convention of the American-
Sociological Society in Chicago.
"Tbe college girl Is not trained to
take her place as a wife and mothor.
All her Interest and ambition in college Is directed away trom the homo.
"Intelligent lyoung women resent
the implication that they are only fit
to cook the meals and wash the dishes.
We can't go back to the days of our
grandmothers, but the thing to do Is
to learn to go forward. In my opinion we need three new programs iu
women's education.
"First education adapted to the
triple demand made upon the women
of the present, as a citizen, an individual and a family builder. Secondly, the eradication of the stigma of
inferiority connected with the home."
Oregonlan Council Asks
Ideas and Criticism
Oregon 8tate Barometer—
"Suggestion Week," a period for
constructive criticism of u"ny phase
of student activity by students and
faculty members, has been scheduled
for this week by Grant McMillan, student body president. Thla Is the llrst
time that such a project has been
used on this campus and It ls believed
to be entirely new to Pacific coast
colleges.
Criticism Wanted
This step was taken tn au endeavor
to give students who have helpful
criticism of any phase of studont government, activities, student officials
and procedure a chance to voice their
opinions to those who are in a position to carry them out. Many valuable and constructive Ideas and plans
for student government have been
lost because the students feel that
they cannot be heard, believes McMillan. As a result they express themselves to a few and the ideas are lost.

against tho system ou the basis that
ln certain cases machinery tor Its
enforcement Is necessary and when
this situation arises it Is really not an
honor system at all. Dean Meckel of
the University of Missouri concurred
in this opinion, saying that a roal
honor system should not require a
system of supervision and detection
but that the punishment should come
In the depreciation of the fineness of
the character of the student violating It.
The second division of the discussion decided that the honor system is
an asset to the educational world and
its advantages far outweigh Its disadvantages. Recognizing tho values
of the system the N. S. F, A. was requested to encourage and aid colleges
and universities to Improve their
honor systems If they hud (Item and
where the H\stem does not exist It
was suggested to lend aid 111 helping
establish  It.
Tho problems of the honor systems
vary with Institutions in different
sections of the country and some
schools limit their systems to a few
major problems as cheating, bundling
of library books and the care of university property, whllo In other colleges It includes matters pertaining
to honesty In any phase of college life.

the third quarter. Lots Tourtellotte,
after much hard playing scored Varsity's basket making the score at the
end of the third quarter 14-6 for Victoria.
The last quarter was thrilling. Viotorla, despite Varsity's effects to
withstand the attack, put on a final
spurt and chalked up eight more
points. Although the co-eds were
mostly on the defensive, Lois Tourtellotte managed to get the ball down
to the visitors end of the field and
passed it to Ella Hardy who scored
a neat basket. When the final whistle
blew the Victoria team was far in
the lead with a score of 22-8.
The team for Varsity was: Lois
Tourtellotte (2), Helen Magulre (2),
Wllma Watson (2), Ella Hardy (2),
Clara Mercer, Kay Kldd, Muriel
Crawford.
Theteam for Victoria;  Ruth Fields.

I am a hockey player. Dut things
were not always thus; I was once a
respected member of tho community.
Like all social outcasts there Is another person In my and tale of woo,
He wits the opposing bare-back, or
something like that. I hadn't played
the game before but it looked very
simple. As a matter of fact I did very
well because my girl friend Maybelle
said so! Well, anyhow—this other
man checked me all over the Ice but
finally I shot from the aad llne( it
was a blue ono of a deep ultramarine
color) and the big fat man with the
big stick let lt go right past. He
seemed rather surprised. I guess I
was too fast for him,
However the man who puts us on
and takes us off took me off. I think
maybe because the fat man had a
sweater like mine they didn't like it.
Maybe they were jealous of me.
I really think I obtained my position
(not the ono I am usually in when on
the ice) by my ability to shoot down
the ice and gain goals by the law of
averages.
I Hat in the little box Cor some time
with three other follows but got tired
after a while and decided to Join In
again. Nobody liked it though and
two men took me :>ff brutally. They
were quite nice to me afterwards and
told me not to worry ns the nlco man
with some sort of u wagon would be
along in u minute. It was nice to
think of getting a ride home. I knew
that the people appreciated my playing   for  the   college.
However I had to wait too long as
the car had to come- all tho way from
New Westminster so I went homo
alone.
