Well Received
Sixth Annual Concert of
iMusical Society
The annual concert of the Musical
Society was held in the ballroom of
the Hotel Vancouver on Wednesday
evening, March 15. A large audience
was present, including a number of
students and many members of the
faculty; the Musical Society and the
assisting artists won numerous expressions of appreciation from their
The programme was long but well
balanced, and sufficiently diversified
by the various forms of music provided—orchestral selections, glees, piano
and vocal solos. However, it might
be suggested that after two and a half
hours of attention, the nerves of an
audience are scarcely in an ideal condition for listening to such a massive
and compelling work as "For Empire
and for King," rendered by full chorus
and orchestra. It seemed to be something of a strain also on the performers—the effort to maintain the volume of sound through seven long
stanzas being a little too noticeable,
and thereby detracting from the im-
pressiveness of the^chorus. In their
other selections, however, the Glee
Clubs were admirable. The women
rendered "Sandman am a-Softly
Comin'" (Humoresque) in a delightful manner; the joint glee clubs were
equally successful in such familiar
items as "The Lass with the Delicate
Air," or "Where Are You Going To" ?
and in Grieg's difficult "Sunshine
Song." It is unfortunate that the
two glee clubs are so disproportionate: when the men sang alone they
were excellent (one regrets that they
did not "have a complete song for
themselves), but in the general choruses they were not able to hold their
own, and the key was therefore somewhat too consistently high.

Mr.  Pim Will Pass By
Tonight will witness the first performance at the Avenue Theatre of
the Players' Club Spring comedy,
"Mr. Pim Passes By," by A. A. Milne.
This is to be the special "Varsity
Night" when the majority of the students will attend the performance. The
play will be repeated tomorrow and
Saturday, the last production being
in aid of the General Hospital, and
being chiefly patronized by the outside public. As the play has already
been . presented in New Westminster
and Nanaimo during the past few
weeks, those taking part will have
overcome their first nervousness and
acquired an admirable, polish, avoiding - the -minor "contretemps" which
: too .often attend the first nights of
amateur productions.
Novel   Programme  at
Alumni Meeting
Playlets Presented by Members
of Various Classes
Dramatic productions by the various graduate classes featured last
week's meeting of the Alumni Society. The first part of the meeting
was taken up with regular business
when the following were appointed
as the Nominating Committee: Mr.
"Dick" Leckie, Mr. "Joe" Schell, and
Miss Ruth Fulton. They will receive
nominations for the officers of the
association, the election to take place
at the next general meeting in May
at which a reception will be given in
honor of the classes of '22.
The girls of Arts '18 opened the
programme with a series of pretty
tableaux, representing modern advertisements. Miss Dorothy Bolton, who
acted as convenor, took the first
scene, this being a reproduction of
the advertisement for "Old Dutch."
A pretty scene representing "Community Silver" was given by Miss
Bonnie Clement; Miss Lena Bodie, in
dainty, old-fashioned costume, acted
the "Fairy in Your House"; "Mulsi-
fied Cocoanut Oil" was represented
by Miss Hazel Wilband, while Miss
Stella Maguire, in red and white costume, was "Aunt Jemima," with her
famous pancake flour.
An original pantomine in black and
white, "The Camel and The Vamp,"
was the offering of Arts '17. The
scenery and costumes were unique
while the action by the various characters showed histrionic ability. The wily vamp with her taking
ways was portrayed by Miss Kathleen Peck, while the camel who saved
the day for the, lovers was taken by
Miss Winifred Lee. The maiden and
lover, journeying oyer the. desert to

Two More Elections
on Monday Next
Lit. and Scientific—and Men's
The election of the President for the
Literary and Scientific Department
will take place next Monday, March
27. The candidates for the position
this year are Norman Robertson,
Arts '23, and Bill Graham, Sc. '23.
Both men have taken an active part
in student activities. Norman Robertson this year is president of the
Classics Club as well as of the
Social Science Club. Bill Graham,
Sc. '23, is vice-president of Science
'23 and holds the position of reporter
to the Science Undergrad. He also
takes a big interest in the Men's Lit,
and is chairman of the Inter-class
Debates committee.
The election of the President of
Men's Athletics will also take place
next Monday. Two Science men have
been nominated for the position.
Both candidates, J. Wolverton, '24,
and Doug. Rae, '23, are well fitted
for the position and have done much
for the furtherance of athletics in
the university. Wolverton holds the
position of President of the soccer
club while Doug. Rae ably looks after
the affairs of the Track club.
Today's elections include the election
of the President of the Science Undergrad. and Women's Undergrad.
Theatres and
OAw Things
Mr. and Mrs. Kennedy
Prove Interesting
On Friday noon in the auditorium
the students of the University had an
opportunity of hearing Mr. Charles
Rann Kennedy, the actor-playrtght,
and his gifted wife Miss Edith Winn
Mr. Wood, in introducing the distinguished visitors, said that one of
the duties oi the Players' Club was
to strive to bring the student body
in tonch with the best exponents of
dramatic art of the present day. He
said that heretofore the Players' Club
had had difficulty in fulfilling this
function owing to the fact that few
really worth-while stage celebrities
passed through Vancouver during the
college session.
Mr. Kennedy spoke chiefly of the
"Little Theatre" movement and its
value to the community. He said that
the old ideas of education were being
shattered, that people no longer fixed
their faith in books alone, nor came
to school or college merely to "improve their minds." This greatest of
all heresies was being gradually eradicated by the growing tendency of
this age to "make" things.
"The study of the drama," he said,
"is a very profitable as well as enjoyable one and taken in a big sense is
not merely an amusement but & great
informer and educator. Thus drama
of the better class is a touchstone by
which all life may be interpreted. The
civilizing influence of the community
theatre mea; s a lot to the vitality of
University .ife. It is hard for the
individuals in a University to present
their ideals and aims to the general
public if they do not utilize their best
medium of expression, "The Community Theatre.' Besides this such a
theatre is the best advertisement a
college can have."

Announcement is made of the election of Jack Woods to the Presidency
of the Agricultural Undergrad. For
the past two years he has ably directed the affairs of Agricultural '23
and is without doubt the logical man
for the position.
The position of President of Women's Athletics is announced to be
conceded to Gladys Weld, '23, by
acclamation. Miss Weld has taken

Many students, because they have
not seen or heard much of the activity
that is being carried on, are inclined
to believe that the project of publishing the University War Book has been
abandoned. But this is far from
being the case, for the compilation of
the records is now almost complete,
and it is expected that the book will
go to press sometime before the end
of April.
The collection and compilation of
war service records was commenced
by Mr. S. Morley Scott, B.A., after the
closing of last session. Every male
student of McGill, B. C, and U. B. C.
was circularized, and those who had
service, either in Canada or overseas, were asked to fill out a questionnaire from which the material for the
book was to be prepared.
At present there are somewhat
over 550 records complete and ready
for press, but there remain as many
as eighty or,:,ninety students to hear
from. It is*not known what number
of these had service, but it is expected
that the total records in ,the book
will reach 600. The number1 .pf those
who gave their lives in the Great War
is in the neighborhood of nin^y.
The War Book will follow ,.th£\style
adopted by the University of Toronto
in its recdj-cls publication. A brief
paragraph giving name, faculty and
years of attendance; original unit and
rank with date; other units and
ranks, if any, with dates; dates of
arrival in England and France; unit
and rank'in France; record of casualties, mentions, decorations, etc.; and
date of return to Canada and discharge.
A special short biographical sketch,
probably accompanied by a photograph, will be prepared about each
student who made the supreme sacrifice.
After Mr. Scott's departure for the
East, the work was carried on by
Captain Elliott for a period, but he
found that his duties at the Vancouver Technical School would not permit his continuing them. Mr. A. F.
Roberts, formerly of Arts '23, was
asked to complete the work, if possible, before the middle of April and
he is in charge of the compilation at
the present time.
It is very important that all the
material for the War Book be in hand
before the first of April, and for this
reason the editor of the war service
records is making a special appeal to
all readers of the Ubyssey to assist
by sending in their own material if it
is not already prepared, and by urging the co-operation of others. If
anyone is not certain whether his record is in, an enquiry will be immediately answered by the editor of the
war service records.
There are a number of—shall we
say jt?—professors and students who
have not yet answered the letters
addressed to them, and it is the cooperation of these that is specially
The final meeting of the Vancouver
Institute for the 1921-22 Session will
be held in the Physics Lecture Room
on Thursday evening. On this occasion, Rev. Dr. H. H. Gowen of Seattle
will give an address on "Literature
and the Animal World." Dr. Gowen
is well known in the city as a fascinating lecturer on literary subjects.
The Institute has been favored on
more than one occasion. His choice
of subject allows for the treatment
of Literature from a standpoint not
often stressed and consequently from
one none the less interesting.
It appears that a full house will
be present at the first performance of
the Spring play, "Mr. Pim Passes
By." The sale of tickets for the
premiere performance has been brisk.
This will be the third performance of
the play and, it is expected, the best
so far, even though the players have
demonstrated their ability by a most
distinct success in both of the previous
performances.' The following appeared in the Nanaimo paper:
"The Players' Club of the University of British Columbia repeated
their success by their second performance of "Mr. Pim Passes By." Nanaimo theatregoers turned out :jn full
force and .gave, the players a h&arty
reception, as was clearjy demonstrated
by the repeated applause."
The 'players were accompanied by
the pigs on their trip to Nanaimo via
the "Princess Pat". The cast was
therefore .more complete than it will
be here, unless'.some unexpected pigs
turn up.        *j

be married, was played by Miss
Helen White and Mr. "Pat." Fraser.
The villain who was foiled in all his
attempts to annoy the lovers was
very capably done by Mr. "Bill" Ab-
ercrombie. Mr. Leroy Wright took
the part of the narrator who gave
the story in detail as the act advanced, while Miss Maisie Suggitt supplied the music.
The "doings and undoings" of well-
known people were interspersed with
witty dialogues as the offering of
Arts '19 in "The 1952 Conference between the University Authorities and
the Government," concerning the
moving of the college to Point Grey.
This was shown most conclusively to
be impossible by the University delegation who were quite determined not
to forsake their moss-covered haunts
in Fairview to go west. The Hon.
John Alerdyce, Premier, T.D.L., was
the mainstay of the government and
was ably supported by his Ministers:
Hon. Dorothy Houston, Minister of
Education; Hon. Sidney Bell, N.D.G.,
M.T., Attorney-General; and the
Hon. "Spuds" Murphy, P.D.Q., Minister of Railways. Miss Connie High-
moor opened fire on behalf of the
Alma Mater and was backed up in a
strong fashion by Alice Gross, the
Athletics' representative. The janitor, Miss Catherine Maynard, finally
dashed all hopes for the Government
and declared the conference off.
One of the most amusing and perhaps the cleverest offerings of the
evening was the "Modern Lamentation of Thisby and Pyramis," by the
men of '21. The costumes were most
grotesque, while the altered dialogue
with local hits proved most attractive
and amusing to the appreciative audience. The various characters can
best be described by simply declaring
that they were a scream. As Miss
Thisby, "Art" Lord nearly caused a
riot. Thisby's lover, Pyramis, was
brilliantly acted by Frank Pumphrey.
"Spex" Melville as the prologue narrator was one of the seven wonders
of the world, and incidentally made
himself famous as an actor. Don Mc-
Arthur as "Moonshine" was absent
on the last roll call; "Jock" Kirby as
the Wall greatly abetted the lovers;
while "Joe" Schell as the "Lion"
caused their tragic end. "Mickey"
McDougall as the King sat in great
majesty on his throne—the step ladder—while he discussed proceedings
with his counsel, Evan Boss.

The final number on the programme
was a play called "Sleeping Beauty,"
which was especially written for the
occasion by Mr. "Lefty" Nelson of
Arts '20. It portrayed the awakening of the Alumni association at the
touch of its present president. The
lines were written in verse and very
cleverly done. The costumes were
quite regal in appearance and the
"horse" caused much merriment.
Verna Morris, the young child of the
King and Queen—Mr. Buck and Miss
Janet Gilley—was decreed by "Indifference," Jack Weld, to sleep for five
years. Then after a lapse of five
summers "Prince Charming," Mr.
J. C. Nelson, comes to the rescue of
the "Sleeping Beauty." The flighty
little fairies were flightily flitted by
Mr. "Nemo" Morrison, and the Misses
Eugenie Fournier, Marjory Day, and
Violet Walsh, while Mr. Gerald McClay introduced the two acts with
their prologue. The play was cleverly written and cleverly played and
deserves much praise.
The everfing was then brought to
a close with the serving of refreshments by Arts '16. The table was
centered with a huge basket of flowers.
Misses Isabel McMillan and Muriel
Carruthers acted as joint convenors
and were assisted by Mrs. Elder, Rev.

Varsity climbed up to second place
in the second division league on Saturday, when they defeated the "Brother Bills" by three goals to one. This
victory puts us but one point behind
Province, the league leaders. However, the game was no walkover for
the blue and gold eleven; on the contrary, judging by the play in the first
half, Elks had a distinct advantage.
The grounds (Recreation Park) were
in very bad condition, and this, in
some measure, may account for the
lack of pep in the first half. Elks
notched the first counter, and it was
not till near the end of the first period that Crute equalized. The ball
was shot from almost centre; the
goalie did stop it, but due no doubt
to its condition, he allowed it to slip
through his fingers and it rolled in.
The first half ended 1-1, and both
teams started the second half sure of
the outcome. Varsity forwards were
helped considerably this half by the
long forward passes of their backs,
and, owing to their superior speed,
had the Elk goal in danger most of
the time. In fact, it was due to this
mode of playing that Varsity got
their second and third goals. In a
scrimmage in front of the Elk goal,
Jackson sent a fast, low shot into the
net. Five minutes later, McLeod beat
the goalie again on a clever shot. The
game now was a certain victory for
Varsity and although Rourke for Elks
tried hard to counter, the game ended
3-1. This game proves that Varsity
is a very serious contender for the
leadership, and although there are
four very hard games to win yet, one
with C. N. R., one with Province, and
two with Royal Bank, there seems
little doubt as to the outcome. The
lineup on Saturday was as follows:
Mosher, Baker, Crute, Emery, Wilkinson, Manning, Cameron, McLeod,
Lundie, Jackson and Rushbury.
Mosher played a brilliant game.
Rushbury. Cameron and Crute also
showed up very well, the whole team
showing very good form.
Last Wednesday the Girls' Senior
basketball team took the Normals'
pride into camp to the tune of 26-6.
Judging it from the point of being a
good contest, it was a rather tame
affair. At the same time, we must
credit our girls with their splendid
play, for they were certainly superior
in all departments of the game at
every stage. Had their opponents
been able to give them a harder tussle, it would have certainly resulted
in a pretty contest. As it was, Varsity had it all their own way.
Varsity started playing with their
usual overwhelming energy. In a
short time they had run up quite a
big score, and it was evident which
way the game was going. By half
time the score stood about 14-2 for
U. B. C. The second half was a repetition of the first, with Varsity
scoring at will, at the same time holding down the Normals to a total of 6.
Final count for the college was 26.
It will be difficult to pick out any
particular star from the victor's lineup. It was simply an all-star team.
The forwards went like whirlwinds,
the centre was right on the job and
the guards were like a ton of bricks.
Helen Tatlow and Eve. Eveleigh did
most of the scoring. Anna Stevenson
and Helen Tatlow were knocked out,
but recovered sufficiently to carry on.
Line-up: Forwards, Helen Tatlow,
Eve. Eveleigh; centre, Eloise Angell;
guards, Gladys Weld, Anna Stevenson.
Two more games in the interclass
soccer competition were played on
Wednesday of last week on the King
Edward grounds. The Aggies swamped Sc. '22 in the first game, beating
Doyle with two goals. The play was
all Agriculture but the Science team
had all sorts of alibis as they were
playing two men short and had had
no practice. The Aggie's have to dish
up a better brand of football to get
into the finals.
Sc. '25 and Arts '2-1 played full
time to a one all draw. The play was
fairly even and a much better display
of football was given than that of the
first. Haiggie Mosher slipped one by
his own goalkeeper to the delight of
the crowd but Pug evened the score
with a dandy in-off shortly after.
Pug. was playing centre when the
whistle started 'em off—after that he
was playing the ball wherever it happened to be.
The best soccer of the day was
played in the last game which went
two overtime periods without any
score. Sc. '24 was conceded a good
chance to beat the Freshmen but '25
held them all the way. The Arts men
were greatly strengthened by Baker
at back, while their forwards had the
edge on the Science men. Sc. '24
passed up several good chances to
score in the overtime periods. Emery
was the bright light on the Science
team. The replay should be well
worth seeing.
Bad weather conditions and the use
the K. E. H. S. grounds on only three
days per week have greatly hampered
the soccer play-offs. These will probably not be finished until early next
week at least, and the finals will undoubtedly prove interesting as, at
present, the Governor's Cup hangs in
the balance with three classes in reach
of it—one from each faculty. The
question is which has the longer
An interesting talk was delivered
this week by K. Carlisle on the Seed
Extraction Plant in New Westminster. Commencing with an outline of
how and where the seed is gathered,
the speaker proceeded to describe the
different processes through which the
raw material passed at the plant. He
gave some data on the cost of production and relative prices, and spoke of
the different markets for the seed.
G. T. Loveridge then spoke on Fruit
Packing. His speech, which was very
interesting, dealt with the manner of
preparing fruit for the market as
fresh fruit, the importance of the industry in B. C, the markets available,
the different' grades of apples and
methods of grading, and finished with
an outline of government inspection
of fruits packed.

It too often happens that an argument or debate loses much of its
force owing to the absence of concrete facts and figures to illustrate
the points at issue. If a contention
is valid, nothing supports it so effectively as statistics; if it is fallacious,
statistics puncture it with a promptitude and completeness that is entirely
The University of British Columbia
is existing under conditions of extreme financial privation; this statement in its general terms has been
reiterated until it is a truism. One
also hears frequent but more or less
vague remarks that the whole educational system in Vancouver and the
other parts of the province is not as
it ought to be. But few people realize the extent to which statistics bear
out these statements. We are too
prone to accept the assertions of the
authorities that the prevalent "hard
times" necessitate retrenchment; we
do not inquire whether the other provinces of Canada are not similarly
Even  the   strongest  exponents   of
the arguments mentioned in the first
part of the last   paragraph   will   be
startled to learn how thoroughly the
figures bear out their contentions. In
the  Educational   Supplement  of   the
London   "Times"   for   Februray   25,
there is an article on "The Cost   of
Education in Canada," illustrated by
the   official   figures   of  the   Dominion
Bureau of Statistics.    In tabular form
is  shown  the  percentage  of  increase
(or decrease)  in the expenditures of
the   various   provinces   between   1914
and 1919.    The result is astounding.
The average percentage of increase for the whole of Canada is
30 per cent.    The maximum for
any   province   is   89    per    cent.
(Quebec).      The     minimum    increase is 16 per cent.  (Alberta).
Of the nine provinces, only ONE

British   Columbia,    which    shows
What   more   need   be    said?    The
figures are more eloquent and more
convincing than the most impressive
oratory  could be.    The  obvious fact
may be added that in the past two
years no" effort has been made by the
province to remedy this state of affairs.     In  fact,  it  is   most   probable
that  the  figures  today  would  show
a further decrease over those of 1919,
on which the comparison is based.
And the recent census has shown the
large increase which has taken place
in the population of the province.
Is British Columbia enjoying a
private 'slump' while the other provinces are comparatively prosperous?
This is not the general opinion. Then
we must ask seriously and with reprobation: Where is the public money
going to, that the most important of
all the government's responsibilities
—education—is starving for lack of
sustenance ?
The mind is a thing of the most
exquisite delicacy, and we pound at
it, some of us, as though it were a
second-hand typewriter. There are
scores of students in the University
at this very moment who are facing
the tragedy of a mind gone stale on
the threshold of the examination
room. Throughout the term they
have tightened the strings until now
the instrument has become flat; they
have persisted in their course with an
appalling perseverance, and as a result are ready to graduate into that
most hopeless and pathetic class that
civilization ever produced: the "brittle intellectuals who crack beneath a
O you of the schooled and sober
mind, assert just this once the divine
right of inconsistency, and forget
your schedules and your logic, your
analyses and your notes. The next
golden day that April brings, climb
some sun-drenched hillside, and let
the winds of heaven cool your cheeks
and ruffle your hair until they "wash
the mind of foolishness." Stay there,
close to the skies, until an exquisite
lassitude has slackened and healed the
convalescent mind, and the breath of
Spring has recharged the vitiated imagination. And then descend with
firm tread and level gaze, like a returning conqueror, to your doom
"among the inequalities."
That many of the shortcomings of
life in this University are due to a
lack of active and independent thinking on the contemporary problems of
the world, is a fact that we are begin-
ing ot recognize. The words of Jack
London may be applied to it: "I went
to the University; I found the University, in the main, olean and noble,
but I did not find the University
In this University the situation is
aggravated by the fact that we are
out of touch with the intellectual
movements of the other Universities
of the Continent. We do not realize
that events have been moving rapidly
in the past two or three years, that
the whole outlook of the thoughtful
student has been altered by the various developments which have taken
place since the war ended.
We do not obtain any reflection of
this new attitude through books and
periodicals, so when we see any evidences of a feeling akin to it which
naturally is springing up here, in reaction to the same influences, we think
it is phenomenal and inexplicable.
It is with the desire to show something of the main stream of which the
currents are beginning to stir this
backwater, that the "Ubyssey" prints
in another column a brief review of
the activities of American college
students along one of the lines of the
new intellectual liberation.
Our noted visitors on Friday last
expressed their views as to their political beliefs almost as emphatically
as some of the budding social reformers of the Men's common room.
Our desk is next to that of the
elongated person who tries to edit
"Muck." He clings so much that it
distracts our mind. If this column is
rotten, blame him.
Enterprising campaign managers
and others who are responsible for
election signs evidently believe in
hammering an idea home by repetition. We submit that different information on different signs would at
least be more interesting.
Speaking of campaign managers—
and elections—we are informed on
reliable authority that the two most
famous of that fraternity at present
loose in our halls have each backed
one winning candidate in the present
elections. If they tossed a coin for
the mastership and swore off there
would be more peace in the corridors.
Further, the freshmen would not

CALENDAR (1922-23)
It is expected that the Calendar
for next year will go to press in a
few days' time, and that copies will
be ready for distribution early in
April. There are a number of minor
changes such as always occur from
year to year. A new course in Geography is being offered under the
Department of Geology. So-called
Distinction Courses are no longer in
the Calendar, although particular departments offer a fourth hour of work
similar in general character to the
old Distinction hour. Attendance
upon this fourth hour, however, is
voluntary, and no formal credit is
given. Under the new Calendar also
no penalties by way «f reduction in
units is attached to certain courses
when these courses are taken by
Third and Fourth Year students.

An important appointment to the
Publications staff of next year was
made by the Students' Council at a
meeting on Wednesday last when Mr.
Geoffrey Bruun of Arts '24 was appointed as the new Senior Editor.
Mr. Bruun has very ably filled a
post as associate editor of the Ubyssey during this last term. For a
time before that he was one of the
Literary editors; he was one of the
authors of the "Chapbook," the student volume of verse, and has taken
a considerable share in the doings of
his class. He comes to his new position highly recommended by those
who have worked with him.
Other Publications appointments
so far made include those of Miss
Phylis MacKay and Mr. Geoffrey Rid-
dehough to be Associate Editors.
Miss MacKay has done excellent work
on this year's staff and it is very
gratifying to those who have worked
with her to know that she will be
able to carry on as Senior Associate
Editor. Her experience and capability will be of great value to the new
Editorial Board. Mr. Riddehough has
been one of this year's Literary Editors. He is a member of Arts '24
and is well known in his class as a
brilliant student.
Miss Sal lee Murphy is to be Feature Editor of next year's Ubyssey,
The post is a new one, of editorial
rank, and will involve general supervision of all "features" in the paper.
Miss Murphy is the present Exchange
Editor and has taken part in intercollegiate debating, Women's Oratorical
contest and many other activities
about the college.
The Ubyssey extends its congratulations to these members of the new
staff and feels confident that they
will be able to keep the "rag" very
much alive.

On Wednesday, March 15, the women of Arts '25 won for their class
the honor of holding during next year
the Shield given annually by the Women's Lit. for interclass debating.
Miss Dorothy Murray and Miss Elsie
Rilance of '25 defeated Miss Elaine
Griffiths and Mrs. Ida Breeze of '23,
the former upholding the negative
and the latter the affirmative of the
subject, "Resolved that India should
secede from the British Empire and
become a separate nation."
Miss Griffiths and Mrs. Breeze
maintained that the present system of
government was not beneficial politically because a foreign governmental
staff is bound to lose interest in the
country, morally because it prevents
the development of the manhood of
the country, economically because it
opposes free trade, and socially because it prevents the unification of
the small states. They asserted,
moreover, that India is not contented
and that the masses of her people will
never be satisfied until they have obtained freedom from British domination.
Miss Murray and Miss Rilance, on
the other hand, affirmed that India
prefers British Government to the
Brahmin tyranny which would result
if she seceded from the Empire, and
that British brains and British capital are necessary for the development
of the country. They declared that
what Britain has done for India does
not warrant separation: she found the
country disorganized, anarchistic,
convulsed by internal struggles; and
she has made it prosperous, peaceful,
and united. Finally the speakers
showed that, on account of the diversity of languages, the caste system,
the political disunion, and the ignorance of governmental affairs prevailing among her people, India is totally
unable to govern herself.
Advices received from B. C. graduates now in Eastern universities
herald the inception of the "League
for Industrial Democracy," whose
purpose is "Education for a new
social order based on production for
public use and not for private profit."
Sponsored by representative university men and women the League has
made rapid progress in the last few
months. Thriving and successful
study and discussion groups have
been formed in Harvard, Princeton,
California, Yale, Wisconsin, Dartmouth, Columbia and Chicago. Nor
have the women's colleges lagged behind. Vassar, Wellesly, Barnard
and Radcliffe, undeterred by Vice-
President Coolidge's fulminations in
the "Delineator," have already taken
the initiative in forming local
branches of the League for Industrial
However, before considering the
relation of the League to U.B.C. it
would be well to look more closely
into antecedents and ideals. There
have been Liberal Clubs and Fabian
Clubs and Primrose Leagues for
years in the Old Country. In the
larger universities of New England
there has always prevailed an atmosphere more hospitable to new and at
first unpopular ideas than in the
smaller state universities of Canada
and the American West. Harvard
has had its Liberal Club for a long
time. More recently branches of the
Intercollegiate Socialist Society and
of the National Security League have
been established there. Similar organizations are to be found in every
major American university and fill an
accepted portion of student activities.
Representatives of these various progressive and radical groups which
have for years functioned untrammelled in the East met in conference
last autumn, realized the essential
identity of their goal and resolved to
join hands in achieving it. It was
from this conference that the League
for Industrial Democracy was conceived. Its aims as stated are very
general and all inclusive; they cover
the activities of socialist and single
taxer. They permit all students, what
ever their particular affiliation for the
moment may be, to cooperate in waking up the universities. It is some
such organization as this that will
take up the challenge to the youth of
the country, as uttered by Mr. Chas.
Rann Kennedy on Friday last.
The founders of the League conceived of rendering some such service
to the Canadian and American Labour
movements as the Fabians and more
recently the Guild Socialists have
rendered to the British Labour movement. That there is the need and the
opportunity for such conscious and
intelligent effort cannot be denied.
Hitherto the lack of such an agent
has handicapped and retarded the development of the Canadian Labor
movement. That the League can fill
such a need is indisputable, provided
only the young men and women of
the universities are prepared to get
behind it and give it support.

The orchestra also deserves unstinted praise. Its three groups of
selections were of a uniformly high
standard, and they were entirely successful in conveying the subtle "atmosphere" which attaches to the
pieces which they rendered. The audience was particularly delighted by
the concluding number—the exotic
"Egyptian Dance." The various elements of the orchestra harmonize
with an ease and completeness that
would be envied by many organizations of more veteran players.
The audience could not be blind to
the fact that both the orchestra and
the glee clubs were indebted to their
director, Miss Ida Morris, for much
of their proficiency. In her conducting Miss Morris displayed admirable
poise, as well as technique of the first
order. One felt that a discord would
scarcely be possible under her persuasive baton.
The Society was assisted by three
local artists of outstanding merit.
Mr. J. D. A. Tripp displayed his
customery mastery of the piano in
the first group of his selections, and
his second offering was in many respects the "piece de resistance" of the
whole programme. This was the
wonderful Hungarian Fantasy of
Listz, and with Mr. Ira Swartz at
the second piano, Mr. Tripp held his
hearers enthralled by the dash and
vigour of his playing, as well as by
his technical accomplishments, which
were entirely adequate for producing
the required effect.
Mrs. H. T. J. Coleman won an
ovation at her first appearance before
a University audience, which naturally feels a certain proprietory interest in her. Mrs. Coleman has a
contralto voice of admirable power
and range. Many of her notes are
utterly satisfactory but an occasional
touch of harshness was discernable.
In her first song she challenged comparison with Clara Butt, who sang
"Down Here" at her recent concert
in this city. Mrs. Coleman showed
sympathy as well as skill by the
manner in which she handled the
emotional force of this unusual little
song. This was followed by "Who
Knows," "A Little Song," and "I
Passed By Your Window."
Later Mrs. Coleman presented a
song in which her gifts had an
opportunity for full play. This was
the moving "Cry of Rachel" and
nobody could have failed to respond to
Mrs. Coleman's interpretation, which
was noteworthy for feeling and power
The third soloist, Miss Jessie Adam,
a former student of the University,
was heard in "The Blackbird," and
as an encore she gave Mana Zucca's
whimsical "Big Brown Bear." This
is   generally   considered   a   suitable

song for a basso voice, and it had a
peculiar piquancy and charm in Miss
Adam's limpid soprano. The audience
was enchanted, and recalled Miss
Adam emphatically, not being content
untill she repeated the song.
In general, one can only express
satisfaction at the remarkable quality
of the music provided by the club. All
the arrangements were perfectly
carried out; one can only criticise
such unimportant and unavoidable
defects as the raucous cry of the bellboys in the adjacent parts of the
hotel, which seemed fated to come at
most inappropriate moments. Also
it is a pity that when the club went to
the trouble of having the words of
the glees printed on the programme,
these words should not correspond
with those occurring in the songs. But
it is quite unnecessary to harp upon
such trivialities. Rather let it be said
that at its sixth concert the Musical
Society has surpassed its previous
successes and helped to convince the
discriminating section of the public
that the University stands for all that
is best in aesthetic study, and does
not confine itself to promise, but
achieves also a very considerable
measure of performance.
ARTS   '24   HIKED
The best part of the Arts '24 hike
was not the advance write-ups. True,
the weather might have been a little
improved, but "the spirit of the troops
was excellent," and from first to last
there was not a dull moment.
The hotel was reached about 3.30
and while some resorted to dancing
others surrounded the fireplace and
contributed a flow of repartee that
scintillated with pyrotechnic regularity.
By 5 o'clock even Jack's eloquence
could not restrain the hungry mob
and supper was prepared. It was
not a particularly silent meal. Afterwards marshmallows were toasted,
and the dancing resumed.
At 8 o'clock the return hike commenced. The skies had cleared and
the walk was delightful. In fact the
whole affair was so conspicuously
successful that another is being
planned for after the exams. Here's
hoping it is held and that Miss Peck
can be persuaded to act again as

"ladies' smoking-room" by next year.
Needless to say, co-ed leaders are
all enthusiastic now that the craze
has come to light. For a long time
they have felt that fragile feminine
nerves, frayed by long hours over
the books, should be soothed by use
of cigarettes, and now they have
come into the limelight with their
war cry that "smoking rooms will be
a boon to feminine higher education."
And maybe it isn't so bad to be
"just like the men."
ARTS   '23. HIKE
Arts *23 will have, their postponed
hike to Capilano on Saturday next.
The time of leaving will be announced by means of the notice boards.
There need be no fear of threatening
clouds, for there is shelter at the
Capilano Hotel, an excellent dancing
floor and a cosy fireplace. The Juniors are looking forward to another
successful outing.

Mr. Kennedy spoke at some length
about his own experiences with a
Community Theatre at Millbrook,
N. Y. He said that his own and his
wife's work there had had very satisfactory results and had proved a
great help to the community at large.
"To be sure," as he explained, "Mill-
brook is especially fortunate in having an excellent Girls' school with a
large faculty and in being only 15
miles from Vassar. The shop-keepers
also are of the better class, and as it
is a great hunting place and blessed
with excellent golf courses, there are
people on the various estates all year
round. As a result of this large and
mixed audience the players are able
to present one performance eight or
nine times in their own village. In
this way much valuable experience is
gained." Mr. Kennedy is rather opposed to the method now. in favor of
amateurs working up one performance and playing it only a very few
times. He believes that this method
is not the best for training young
players. An amateur player must
know his audience, especially if he
is playing comedy, for he must learn
how to "take the laughs" that his
comic lines are intended to bring.
Playing only a few times can not give
the experience necessary for wis.
Mr. Kennedy said, however, that he
realized that in an institution such as
this where the study of the drama is
not a primary matter, much of the
work must of necessity be done in
this way.
That the work of the Community
Theatre has really good results has
been proved in his theatre at Mill-
brook, stated Mr. Kennedy. The effect
of this better class of plays on the
audiences at Millbrook was very
marked. Farmers, carpenters, shopkeepers and many others who had
not had the slightest interest in the
drama found themselves attending
and even enjoying Greek drama.
First, for the sheer beauty of the
singing and dancing and for the thrill
of the melodrama, and later for the
amazing fact that they realized that
these plays were very worth while.
Mr. Kennedy said that the Little
Theatre is taking over the real function of American drama by furnishing the public with plays of real
merit interpreted with feeling and
skill. Broadway will soon cease to
be the real home of the drama and
the theatre-going public of America
will not only be found in the large
cities but scattered all over the country and largely composed of people
who have never seen the inside of a
real professional theatre.
After Mr. Kennedy had concluded
speaking, Mrs. Kennedy read two of
Shakespeare's sonnets, and "The
Mercy Speech" from The Merchant of
Venice, this latter at her husband's
request. Then she delighted the audience with the description of the
building of the Church of Humanity,
from her husband's play, "The Servant in the House." As it was St.
Patrick's day she gave "The Ode,"
by  O'Shaughnessy, which was   very
much appreciated. These selections
rendered with such beauty of gesture
and intonation, although only too new
to some of the audience, were vastly
Although he said that he considered
it a "mid-Victorian impertinence,"
Dr. Sedgewick moved a vote of thanks
to Mr. Kennedy and Miss Matthison,
which was seconded by Miss K. M.
The Players' Club deserve great
credit for enabling the student body
to hear these world-famous artists,
and also they are to be congratulated
on the excellent way in which the
affair was handled. That annoying
going in and out which unfortunately
characterizes so many of our noon-
hour lectures was not allowed as the
doors were shut promptly at 12.05.
The last meeting of the society was
held on March 17 in the auditorium.
The officers chosen were the logical
contenders for their positions. Mr.
Howard Goodwin, Arts "24, was
elected president, and to support
him were chosen Miss H. MacGill,
'25, vice-president; John Burton, '24,
secretary-treasurer; John Schaffer,
'25, publicity manager; Miss Elaine
Griffiths, '23, women's rep., and G.
Martin, '25, men's rep. Prof Sage
was selected honorary president.
Mr. Black, the retiring president,
called on Mr. "Jock" Kirby, presiding officer of 1921 to address the
meeting. He congratulated the society on its increase in numbers.
After this rousing speech Mr. J.
Kania, '25, rendered a violin selection, accompanied by Miss E. Lock-
ard, '25.
The business meeting over, the
benches were put aside and a dance
was the order of the evening.
The dancing went on until midnight—to the enjoyment of not only
those who attended the meeting but
also of a considerable number who
had been in the stackroom and the
library earlier in the evening.
After a closely contested election
last Monday, Miss Dorothy Walsh,
Arts '23, was elected secretary of the
Alma Mater Society. Miss Walsh
has behind her much experience and
an enviable reputation; the Council
next year will benefit, in addition, by
her freshness of outlook and her practical grasp of affairs.
In her Freshman year she won the
Women's Oratorical Contest; as a
Sophomore she was secretary of Arts
'23 and Vice-President of the Sigma
Delta Kappa. During the last year
the Women's Literary Society has
benefited by her common sense and
practicality; in her position as secretary she gave much time to the awakening of new interest in women's
public speaking. Under her direction
and infallible taste the Literary Corner of the Ubyssey has achieved an
extremely high standard and added
an enviable year to its growing tradition. Her splendid speaking ability
recently won her a place on the premier team of the Women's Intercollegiate Debates.
Miss Walsh's originality, and experience should be invaluable assets
to next year's Council and a livening
agency in the conduct of its affairs.
The "Ubyssey" extends to the new
secretary its best wishes for a successful year in a rather arduous position.
The annual meeting of the Nursing
Society was held at the Nurse's
Home on the evening of March 14.
A report of the year's work was
read. The degree to be awarded
graduates from this University has
been finally settled as B. A. Sc.
(Nursing). This point has been
widely discussed among the various
Universities giving the course.
The election of officers took place
and the following have been elected
for the next session: Hon. Pres.,
Miss Johns, R.N.; President, Miss
Bea Johnson; Vice-Pres., Miss Bonnie
Gill; Secretary, Miss Dot Taylor;
Treasurer, Miss Helen Bennet; Lit.
Rep., Miss Marion Fisher. The officers were elected in such a way that
three shall be students from the University and two from those in training at the Hospital, and in this manner closer association may be made.
S. C H.
A general meeting of the Girls'
S. C. M. was held on Thursday last
to review the work of the session and
elect officers for next year.
The secretary-treasurer reported
that five Bible Study groups have
carried on discussion during the year
and the interest and enthusiasm
shown in these meetings augurs well
for next year. Financially the S.C.M.
exceeded its most sanguine hopes for
it has been able to contribute two
hundred dollars towards the national
expenses and has still fifty dollars to
its credit here. It was decided at the
meeting to make personal subscriptions to raise funds, so any who care
to help can give their donation to
some member of the executive.
The following officers were elected
for the coming term: Pres., Jessie
Casselnran; Vice-Pres., Mildred Os-
terhout; Sec.-Treas., Ruby Riley;
Business Committee, Mary Bulmer,
Dorothy Murray and Eleanor Ormrod.
At a public meeting of the S. C. M.
held Monday noon, Miss Bollert gave
an interesting address on "The Bible
As a Textbook in English." She
spoke of the appalling ignorance prevalent regarding the Bible, and then
quoted from several eminent scholars
to prove its worth as the most majestic piece of English literature. In
spite of this it is now studied less
than it has been at any time since
the Reformation. The usual excuse
is lack of time. Miss Bollert then
put the pertinent question, "Do we
study it more in the holidays?" Circumstances do not always alter cases.
She then spoke of the value to be
obtained from such study both spiritually and intellectually.
