IN a closely contested encounter
the issue of which was in doubt
up to the final event, the Varsity Track Squad nosed the Y. M.
C. A. out by the score of 72-68. The
dual meet took place Tuesday night at
the horseshow building.
Thomas, Freshman track star, who
was a large factor in the recent defeat of the upper olass trackmen,
showed his stuff again acquiring the
individual championship by scoring
twenty points. The speed artist from
the interior took first place in the 40
yard sprint, the hop step and jump
and the hurdles. His nearest competitors were Sandin and Caird of
the Y who collected 11 and 10 points
Varsity made an auspicious start
by walking away with honors in the
llrst event, the road race, in which
Shatford and Gansner of the U.B.C.
showed their heels to the rest of the
field. The race which proved most

Announce New
A new and lively periodical will
shortly make its appearance in Vancouver, edited entirely by two former
U.B.C. students, Frank Pilkington,
and Vernon van Sickle. This is
"The Anvil,"• monthly magazine
which aims at filling a real need in
Western Canada.
"The Anvil" will deal with important and widely discussed topic, of
current Interest, with a special appeal to the Western Canadian view-
Klnt. It is a forum with an impar-
il editorial policy, and intends to
form a medium In which all sides of
current controversies may be fearlessly discussed. Writers of standing on various subjects have already
contributed, and the editors feel sure
that the magaslne will become one
of the leading authorities on current
affairs in Western Canada.
In addition, 'The Anvil" is a literary magaslne, with short stories,
Maya, book reviews and poems as
regular features, although it will not
be too "high brow." It will thus
endeavor to develop a real Western
Canadian literature and to encourage
western Canadian authors.
As an Indication of the type of
features In "The Anvil," the follow
iltf are some of the contributions that
will appear In the near future.
Prof, H. P. Angus, of the U. B. C.
Department of Economics has written
a highly-controversial article on "Canadians of Oriental Race," In which he
criticises the treatment of Orientals
horr here.
Noel Robinson, well-known Vancouver writer and an editor of "The
Vancouver Star," discusses one of the
present-day questions in his article.

Council Bucks
Pub Board
MEETING on Wednesday afternoon the Students' Council approved the suggestion of the
Publications Board that a one-day
convention of High School editors be
held during the Christmas holidays,
but declined to give an/ financial assistance. The L.S.E. was asked to
support the project as much as possible.
The Council refused to withdraw a
motion passed a week ago Monday
that the Publications Board must apply for permission to print supplements in the "Ubyssey." The Editor-
in-Chief had written to ask that it
be rescinded on the ground that it is
unnecessary and an interference with
his Jurisdiction.
Tne monthly expense account of the
Publications Board passed with the exception of the item for meals which
the editors have found it necessary
to buy on publishing nights.
The contract for the "Totem" photography was awarded to Wadds,
which was one of the two recommendations offered by the Publications
A sum of $28.00 was granted to
partially pay the expense of sending
delegates to the conference on Inter-
Pacific Relations, to be held at New
College, Oregon. It Was felt that
this is justified, as Pacific Relations
is a subject of greatest importance
at the present time.
The Washington Glee Club is to
visit the University again, and is being off-red a contract guaranteeing
$160.00 with the entire proceeds of
the concert, less U. B. C. expenses.
Mrs. Elsie Martin has been engaged
as stenographer at a salary of $76.00
per month. •'-*'*
A Hat of procedure for executives
is to be drawn up and published, so
that in future there will be no confusion in staging events.

The Board of Governors received a delegation from the Students' Council last night, the Chancellor declaring that he could
give assurance that every member of the Board was in sympathy
with the efforts the students were making. Don Hutchison,
Frank McKenzie and Charles Schultz were the Council representatives.
It was explained that the proposed Ave dollar levy for the
stadium project would be illegal. The Board considered itself
under contract with the people of British Columbia to provide
university education at a cost announced in the calendar, and could
not add to this in the middle of the year.
Three methods of raising the necessary money were discussed.
First, the students might raise what they could among themselves
and ask the government to double it. Secondly, a public campaign
might be held. It wis felt Inadvisable to do this, however, at a time
when the city is being canvassed for funds for the similar Little
Mountain stadium nndertaking. Thirdly, the government might
be asked to make a special grant.
There was a division aL opinion on this idea, President Klinck holding
that it was a possibility. TW President disagreed with some Governors who
said that the Board coujd give no financial aid. He thought the university budget could be re-arranged, with the co-operation of the government, to provide
S sum for stadium facilities. Any such arrangement would necessarily be
held up by certain negotiations now going on between the Board and the
Student self-govirnment was.not discussed. The Council Is expected
to make a statement of ita attitude on the whole situation.
With regard to is last meeting, the Board said that it considered the
matter a legal one, and] that there was no use discussing it with the Councils'
representative. !
Don Hutchison teld the Board that the Council's resolution, (printed in
the last Ubyssey), had been made because the Council felt there was no use
carrying on such work as had been done on the stadium project unless the
attitude of the Board of Governors was known to be co-operative.

"Although I have returned to Canada a better Canadian I am deeply
impressed and full of admiration for
the practical viewpoint and methodical management of the representatives of various countries at the Congresses," stated Professor Davidson {
in his lecture on "Gleanings from my
trip to the Internnational Botanical
and Horticultural Congresses," at the
Vancouver Institute in Ap. S. 100
Monday evening.
Propagation of shrub cuttings and
rubber trees by bud grafting, polarity
and fermology were the subjects
treated by many noted professors at
the Horticultural Congress in Cambridge, at which Professor Davidson
was one of the two official Canadian
representatives. Delegates from 40 to
60 countries attended.
The Europeans .tress the need of
a systematic research in their Botanical gardens, while the Americans
almost disregard the systematic side.
Many experiment! are being made
at the present time concerning root
diseases of plants grown in artificial-
!•' heated soils. The use of electric
lamps in hothouses on dull days was
also advocated.
Revisions of individual systems
were made by the Nomenclature Committee ,as to the length of names; by
the Exchange Committee, concerning
the exchange of young gardeners,
and the Color Committee for the
creation of a color scale to replace
the one used now.
Colorode slides were shown to an
appreciative audience, illustrating the
beauty spots and places of interest
which Professor Davidson had visited.

Instructs Executives
At a meeting of the Discipline Committee held on Wednisday, M. A. Thomas, President of Science '31, S. A.
Mitchell, President of Science'32, and
Art Saunders, President of Science
'33, were summoned before the committee to answer inquiries regarding
irregular procedure in the staging
of their joint class party. The fault
was found to be net entirely theirs
and as a result of tke inquiry, a list
of directions of procedure for executives is to he drawn up and pub-
ished, to avoid further irregularities.

Decided Against
By Pub. Board
A proposal that the "Ubyssey" be
published three times a week next
term was approved by Publications
Board meetings on Monday and Tuesday. The majorities, however, were
not considered large enough to warrant increasing the number of issues
this year.
The meetings approved the plan of
holding a convention of High School
editors during the Christmas holidays.
The next issue of the "Ubyssey"
will appear on Wednesday, on account
of the holiday.
The meetings solidly supported the
Students' Council in its attitude on
Self-government, and in ita effort to
clear the situation up.

A Pat On The Back
Granting a request for a joint conference, the Board of
Governors met representatives of the Students' Council last night
to discuss the financial aspect of the stadium project. The reception given the student delegates was cordial, and the Board
exhibited interest in the undertaking and a desire to co-operate.
The practical results of the conference, however, are not very
definite. Three proposals for raising the money other than by
a general levy were discussed, and it seems to the "Ubyssey"
that the solution of the problem lies in a combination of two of the
suggestions advanced. Let the students raise as much as they can
among themselves, nad then, if necessary, the University's budget
might be re-arranged to provide a total sum that would be sufficient for the carrying out of the project, when doubled by the
government. Another Alma Mater meeting is needed to rescind
the compulsory levy and discuss other ways and means.
Nothing was said about student government, but the time
is now opportune for some clarification of that matter. If there
is sincerity in the declarations of interest and willingness to cooperate made by the Board of Governors last night, then there
should be no difficulty in getting formulated and established the
general principle that, in future, student affairs will be given fullest consideration, that important actions affecting the undergraduate body will not be taken without joint consultations, and that
reasons will be given for the adoption of any course that conflicts
with the opinion or the wishes of the Alma Mater Society. The
Council's representatives have been kindly received and considerately humored.   Is this enough?

One of the most enthusiastic and energetic organizations on
the campus this term has been the Women's Undergraduate
Society. The executive of the Society has already introduced
several new features into Varsity life, and announcement is made
today of yet another project.
Both the fashion show proper of last Saturday and the mock
parade of the pep meeting which preceeded it, were positive proof
that originality and "college spirit" are not lacking among the
U. B. C. co-eds.
In an attempt to promote these qualities among the whole
student body, the Women's Undergraduate Society has undertaken another praiseworthy project. Arrangements have been
completed by the executive for the holding of a song contest among
U. B. C. students. It is hoped that such a contest will not only
foster singing at Varsity functions, but will provide a more complete and efficient collection of Varsity songs from which selections
can be made.

Student Government k
Analyzed By Students
Rod Pilkington, former Editor of
the "Ubyssey," made the following
statement: "Council is making a valiant but hopeless effort to materialize
an ideal that has never been put into
practice. The success of their efforts
will be in proportion to the goodnature of the Board of Governors.
Whatever the Board grants will bo
in the nature of a concession, as the
students have nothing to bargain
"The Council has done the only
thing it could do in asking the authorities for more consideration
where important Alma Mater Society
matters are concerned," said Bart
Griffin, president of Arts '81.
Student opinion of undergraduate
self-government Is not very nigh.
"Practically  speaking,"  said  Ken
Beckett, president of Arts '31, to the
"Ubyssey," "student self-government
is conspicuous by its absence.
Win Shllvock, president of tho
Players' Club, declared that self-
government is a failure, on two grounds—the Council not only allows tho
Senate and Board of Governor! to
handle student affairs without consulting the students, but in its turn
takes such actions as its railroading of the stadium project through
the recent Alma Mater meeting.
When Interviewed, Maurice DesBrlsay, president of Education, said
that, ''the action of the "Ubyssey" and
the Students' Council In the fight for
real student government is both admirable and constructively aggressive.   The point at issue is a detail."
The Editor, "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
In justice to my own theological
position may I ask you to correct in
two particulars wrong impressions
which might be gathered from the
report In the "Ubyssey" of an address I gave recently to the S. C. M.
First, the address waa not meant to
be so negative as the report seems
to indicate. I would be the last to
apply the term "man-made" to Scripture. It was written by man, but
such a statement I would never dream
of making without its correlative of
a divine element also being most evident. And second, I would never
dream of saying the Bible was fallible without two essential concurrent statements; namely that scientific, historical and such other matters,
the literary scaffold of the essential
message of Scripture, but reflect the
mind of the age of writing and may
be superseded, and that there is an
infallibility in the essential purpose
of Scripture, namely the spiritual direction in which it points the human
race, in its long pilgrimage to tbe
Kingdom of God.
I am
Yours sincerely,
Harry  R. Trumpour.

Dear Sir:
Like "Column Render" in the last
issue of the "Ubyssey" -I also wish
to pretest against these many "mud-
sliriRiriK" columns whieh till our college paper these day;.. All these
slams subtle and otherwise, may he
very interesting to the persons concerned, but what about the nineteen
hundred other readers of the "Ubyssey" who probably don't understand
all this about Bunthorne etc. and care
They expect something more brilliant from the pen of R.A.P. than
attempts at humor of which even a
Scienceman in his feeblest moments
would be ashamed (referring of
course to the epistle with the phonetic
spelling). Even the inanities of
Clementina have worn so thin it is
hard to believe that Freshmen would
now get a kick out of them.
If we must have columns let us
have more of the clever and amusing
type such as the "Kandid Konfes-
sions" of M.C. in the last issue.

A well attended open meeting of
the Chemistry Society was held Wednesday afternoon in Sc. 300.
Mr. Rees, chemist for the Home Oil
Distributors gave an interesting talk
on 'Gasoline—Yesterday, Today and

of coloration and knocking, he explained the methods whereby they
were removed. He then outlined the
preparation of gasoline some years
ago and compared It with the modern
methods. "Oil cracking" i_ the most
important step forward^ he stated. In
closing he made a prophecy regarding
the future manufacture of gasoline,
and spoke optimistically of a process
cf hydrogenation as yet in the experimental stage. After a hearty
vote of thanks, the meeting came to

and 1929 respectively. Judging from reports which reach us occasionally,
both are maintain'ng the high standard they set as students here and making
a name for themselves and the University.
Sinclair was one of the most outstanding of U. B. C. athletes. He has
continued his record breaking at Oxford. This year it is expected he will
win the much-coveted Oxford blue.
More than anyone else, Tolmie was responsible for getting a University
Symnasium.   After a long fight he succeeded in having the $.'15,000 bond issue
oated and the dream of a gym was realized.
Welcome Grads and Friends of IL B. C.
After four years experience on
the Publications Board during which
time she was editor of the 1927 Totem
and Associate editor of the "Ubyssey,"
Jean Tolmie, honor graduate of Arts
'28, became Editor-in-chief of the
Ubyssey, being the only woman student who has ever held down that
position in the history of the University.
As an honor student in the Department of Philosophy, Miss Tolmie
achieved the highest marks ever made
in that subject in this University.
Miss Tolmie was also a well known
debater, taking part in many debates.
Since her brilliant career at this
University, Miss Tolmie has been taking up post graduate work at Toronto.
University of B. C. President
As the popular president of the
Alma Mater Society in '23 and as
chairman ot the famous Publicity
Committee Ab Richards deserves much
credit for the final moving of the
University from Fairview to Point
Crey. It was under his able leadership that the Cairn, which has since
become an essential part of our University life, was laid after a triumphant march from Fairview to the site
of the new University.
Ab Richards, who is a graduate of
Agriculture, now holds an important
position on the Dominion Experimental Farm at Agassi.,
Dr. Kllnck, President of the TJnl
verslty, succeeded Dr. Wesbrook in
this position In 1918, and since then
he has fulfilled his duties with the
greatest of ability as the chief exe
cutive of University affairs. Under
him, the progress of the University
has been rapid. From an insignificant collegiate high-school, U. B. C.
has advanced to a position of equality with the leading universities of
the continent.
Ope of Earliest U.B.C. Students
Prof. H. T. Logan was a student
of the University when it was a branch
of McGiil, giving two years instruction in Arts and Applied Science. It
was then known as the McGiil University College.
Col. Logan was awarded the Rhodes
Scholarship for British Columbia in
1907. After achieving a distinguished
War record he returned to the U.B.C.
faculty as Professor of Classics.
Bill Phillips is one of Varsity's outstanding athletes of all time. He has
been for six years the mainstay of
the Soccer Club and was mainly instrumental last year in the team winning promotion.
In addition to starring as an athlete Phillips found time for executive
positions and a difficult applied science
course. He was President of the
Men's Undergraduate Society on the
1926-27 Council.
After graduating in 1927 Phillips married and left to take up a
position in South Africa.
The much-beloved flrst President
governed from the inception of the
University in 1914 till his death in
1918. During his tenure of office,
in the crowded shacks of Fairview,
and in the feverish days of the War,
he established a record of good service that'will endure for many years.
Dr. Wesbrook's greatest achievement was in transferring the University to its present site. To open
the eyes of an unseeing Provincial
Government required a man of surpassing tact, diplomancy and patience,
qualities which President Wesbrook
possessed in an admirable degree.
Prominent Aggie
Since graduation, Syd has obtained
an enviable position in agricultural
work in tlie province. While an undergraduate be was a member of the
winning dairy cattle team in 1925
and the winning dairy products team
in 1926. At a Senior, he was President of his class and Chairman of the
Senior Executives, At present he is
the Dairy Feeds Manager of the Vancouver Milling Company.
Below are reproduced the old buildings irr Fairview, commonly dubbed
"shacks," which boused tbe University from 1914 to 1925. The present
site was only obtained after a long
struggle in which student parades and
a house-to-house canvass were used to
persuade the people of Vancouver.
Some of the finest of the University's graduates received their training in Fairview.

Egyptian Policy
Of England
"HP HE history of the British Oc-
x cupation in Egypt interpreted
m the history of Modern Imperial-
lam In Egypt" waa the subject of the
papor given by Miss Idele Wilson at
• mooting of the Historical Society
given by Professor Cooke at the "Cat
and Parrot Tea Room" on Monday,
November 8.
"Egypt wm marked out for intervention by hor position," aald Miss
Wilson. f,And if Groat Britain had
not stepped In aomo other country
would havo taken hor placo . . .
In 1880 Franco and Groat Britain
established themselves tn Egypt to
guarantee tho Interests of tho foreign
atockholder'i Invested In tho Sues
Canal. Tho Battle of Tel-el-Keblr in
1888 marks tho beginning of tho unofficial British Protectorate whioh
lasted up till 1914, and under which
Egypt formed tho moat anamolous district under British influence."
"Britain had made an agreement
with other European powers that the
must placo Egyptian finances on a
satisfactory basis by 1889. And It
was understood that her occupation
was temporary . . . However, the
British found tholr task hard and
moro and more need to stay, until it
became almost a tradition that Egypt
could not net along without Britain."
"Egypt was faced with another
problem at that time—the growth of
nationalism. Thia waa first manifested by a revolt of the army under
Arabi in 1881. Gladstone crushed
this sign of unrest immediately. New
nationalism began to appear in 1900.
But it waa not until after the war that
the Nationalb* feeling became intensified ... A demand for complete
Independence waa made by Zaghui
Pasha but nothing waa done for aomo
tims by England. Finally, in 1928,
Britain issued a Declaration for Independence for Egypt, reserving control over the Snss Canal, the Sudan,
foreign affairs and tho protection of
foreigners and minorities, since these
wore danger points."
"Britain's policy in Egypt has been
consistently imperialistic," stated
Miss Wilson. "Her chief interest was
holding this Key to India.. Another
form of imperialism has also been
important in Egypt. She has been
induced to become a cotton growing
country and haa been exploited by the
Lancashire cotton interests."
"Today. Egyptian independence ia
only nominal. Since 1922 there have
been three attempts to settle the reserved points, all failing becauae
Britain wanted to give only the
shadow of concession and could not
agree to evacuate Egypt. The Labor
Government, represented by Arthur
Henderson, was the first to take action to place relations on a more settled footing. Lord Lloyd, the British
agent, waa asked to resign. An attempt was made to draw up a treaty,
but this failed owing to the determination of Egypt to control the
"The solution of this problem,"
stated Miss Wilson, quoting from
George Young, "must be a real evacuation of Egypt by the British, as
against the renunciation of the Sudan
bv Egypt, with resource to the League
of Nations to get the guarantees re-
Suired for British interests    in    the
anal and for the Egyptian interests
in the Nile."
Miss Amy Hemingway Jones, of the
Carnegie Endowment for International
Peace, will speak on Tuesday, November 11, 1930, in Arts 100 at 8 o"clock,
under the auspices of the L.S.E. Her

Audience Visits
Ruins of Petra
With Speaker
The Rev. Dr. E. A. Wicker last
Monday afternoon, conducted a small
but interested audience, for an hour,
over the ruins df "Petra."
The speaker stated that "Petra"
was situated in the midst of a rocky
de.olate country, about 60 miles south
of the Dead Sea, near Mount Horeb.
The plateau is 2,000 feet above sea
level and the city occupied a strategic
position in an«fn+ times, being at
the intersection o. «wo great caravan routes.
Illustrating a deep gorge, so narrow
in places that two people are barely
able to pass abreast, the lantern
slides gave the flrst glimpse of the
ruins. The buildings are all carved
out of solid rock, which from the distance looks a beautiful rose color.
El Deir, the Treasure House, and the
Garden Court are the largest of these
buildings, some of whose chambers
lead 30 feet into the cliff. A most
imposing structure is the Theatre,
which holds 4,000 people, and was
hewn out of the rock by the Romans
Steps lead upwards to the sacriflcal
altar on top of the plateau, from
where, Dr. Wicker said, one could
see the Red Sea on a clear day. Tbe
{architecture and carving of the
! buildings shows that this impregn-
! able fortress had been held at various
times by Assyrians, Egyptians, Greeks
and Romans.
In closing the speaker explained
that "Petra" is shrouded in mystery,
Nobody knows when or by whom it
was first built. The year 500 A.D.
brought a disaster—unknown and un-
i accounted for—the trade routes were
altered and Petra abandoned; and today lions, hyenas and jackals roam
where once kings ruled.
China is Theme

Bible God-Made
And Infallible,
V. C. U. Told
Rev. Dr. Esler, M.A., D.D., addressed the V. C. U. on Wednesday in
Arts 204. His subject was, "The Invincible Gospel" and he based hia remarks on the verse "I am not ashamed
of the Gospel of Christ for it is the
power of God unto salvation."
The gospel as portrayed in the Bible
goes back to the beginning of the
history. "The Bible,7' he declared,
"is an infallible book, for if the Bible
is not infallible, then man would have
no revelation, and if no revelation
then he has nothing to guide him.
But history has shown that countless numbers of men have had something to go by, and by their lives
have proven the fact that the Bible
Is a divine revelation."

German Club Finds
Rival Of Da Vinci
Albrecht Durer, "the contemporary
and generally unrecognized equal of
Leonardo da Vinci," was the subject
of the talk given by Mrs. Roys at the
recent meeting of the German Club
held at the home of Dr. Maclnnes on
Monday evening.
Both Durer (1471-1628) and Da
Vinci (1452 1519) were products of
the Renaissance; but, whereas the
works of the latter were recognized
through the spread of the Italian
Renaissance, the wars which devastated Germany throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries retarded the universal recognition of
the German painter's genius. Although Durer went to Italy, and was
influenced by both the Renaissance
and his friendship with Da Vinci, his
work is essentially national. His
genius expressed itself, not only in
painting, but also in sculpture, woodcutting and copper-engraving. By
depicting light and shade, he gave a
new line to his wood-cuts. An interesting detail which illustrates Durer's
thoroughness is the fact that, in his
portrait paintings, each hair on the
subject's bead was delineated separately.
The numerous copies of Durer's
work which Mrs. Roys showed to the
club members, convinced them of the
genius of the German painter, but
the beauty of his work is so characteristically national that outsiders find
it difficult to arrive at a complete un
d.rstandlng of his greatness.
Valedictory Gift Still
In Doubt
The executive of Arts '32 sends
forth a pica for suggestions for a
valedictory gift. At present the class
is in a deadlock over the matter.
The committee says, "We are working on the assumption that the class
is wholeheartedly behind us, and our
only means of success depend on the
way in which the class responds with
intelligent suggestions.1'

Some of my erstwhile friends in
the Soccer Club seem to take my remarks of laat week as a reflection on
the team. For from it. The point
of tho article was directed solely at
the lachrymose goalkeeper, the author
of the reports of the club's hard times.
This man obviously has pull with
the sport editor.
As to my ability to judge soccer
games. Let me say that I was playing soccer when the aforesaid reporter
was still in knickerbockers (or less);
and that having witnessed divers
First Division gamea in England, the
home of the sport, I have some slight
idea of the game as she is played.
However, after thu dance at Kill-
arney, Wednesday night, with which
the Soccer men were subtly connected,
I am in a mood to forgive everything,
even the goal-keeper.
The days of rehearsing are upon us,
or rather are all but over. Homecoming theatre night is imminent. The
remarkabe part of the proceedings
is that, of all the sixteen skits, about
two will have more than three rehearsals, and yet when the great
moment arrives a very effective performance is usually presented. Some
day, in the far future, the various
executives will get to work on their
skits about a month before the final
show. Then we shall have a performance that will demonstrate what
the university can really do.
Our Council, through eagerness to
keep up the good work of other years,
got the cart before the horse, and
travel became difficult.
The Remedy is not as some suggest,
the abandonment of Student Government, but a reconsideration of the
situation. Every form 'of Government is held in check by the Veto.
The Board of Governors had no
other option than to turn the whole
thing down. The Council should have
approached thein, if need be, unofficially. The Board of Governors realize that no Society has the power of
assisting its members, who nave not
the privilege of resigning from the
Society. The motion "to compel" the
students to pay the $6.00 voiced in this
light  is shown  to be "ultra vires."
The best solution would be to alter
the construction in such a way thut
all voting on "Money By-laws" could
be checked carefully.
This is the personal opinion of the
writer, but does not mean that he
is against the Editorial Policy of
the "Ubyssey."

Chapter 10
A gleam of implacable resolution
shone in the eyes of Arnold Anderson
as he grasped me by the shoulder.
"Come, Seribbleweil," he said gently, "We must not despair. Senate is
not as important as it thinks it Is.
Take courage. As usual the fate of
the university is in my hands. We
must stop the meeting at all costs,"
He strode into the Publications
Office and went to the community
telephone. In one corner of the room
we perceived none other than Bunthorne, the campus bard, fondly Angering a stiletto and a tomahawk, while
muttering maledictions on Archibald
the Ail-Right.
"Reevengel" the poet hissed. "I
don't give a RAP. I will parodlse
him. . . I'm a dab at parodies . . .
Lucubrations, are they?    G-r-r!"
"Touched with the Crlmo Wave,"
whispered Anderson pityingly, "We
must keep the illustrious Roderick
Archibald out of the way. Perhaps the
perfume of faint lilies will calm the
poetic mind."
Anderson picked up the telephone
and in a few minutes was in conversation with the chairman of the
"Anderson speaking," I heard. "This
is urgent. Postpone the meeting of
Senate. Call out your C. 0 T. C.
bodyguard . . . Yes, terrible danger
. . . What? . . . No, this is not applesauce . , . Chang Suey, a great scientist, has invented a machine to produce criminals. He may turn it on
Senate . . . Yes, I am a student . . .
I'm not fooling you . . . Central, he's
cut me off."
My friend hung up the receiver with
an expression of helplessness. "He
doesn't believe me. Thinks it is a
Muck Page joke."
Taking up the telephone again, Anderson warned every senator, but
with the same result.
"Of course, Senate will not take
any notice of a student or ex-student,"
he exclaimed bitterly, "I can't blame
them, considering what happens at
the average Alma Mater meeting. We
can only wait."
The telephone bell rang. I answered the call, and found myself
speaking to Hlmle O'Grady, the news
manager. "Great stuff," he said ex-
itedly, "wonderful scoop for the
'Ubyssey,' The Mayor has burned the
City Hall down. The Stadium Fund
has been embezzled. Fifteen murders
and five hundred robberies have been
committed. The papers are bewildered. That gutter rag 'Inflammation'
blames the Chief of Police for committing all the crimes himself. There's
a gang war at the Tamale House,
and a mob is parading up Richards
Street with banners, singing the
'Marseillaise.' Isn't it wonderful!
What a scoop!"
In spite of my horror, I realized
that this was a chance of a lifetime.
My heart sank as I remembered the
"Ubyssey" I had seen, the editor's
notes and the panegyrics against the
C. 0. T. 0.
In despair, I looked out of the
window and to my surprise saw a
Chinaman riding past on a bicycle.
With an exclamation of astonishment
I pointed him out to Anderson.
"A follower of the Grand Snard,"
he ejaculated. "We must protect the
Golden Lotus.    Wh.re is she?"
We gazed around the room in bewilderment. 'The Golden Lotus had

With the football season ct its
height, and important games to be
played in the near future once again
we are entreated and implored to
"show our college spirit" by yelling
ourselves hoarse under the direction
of a wildly gesticulating figure of a
cheerleader. Already a meeting has
been held to instil the proper amount
of enthusiasm into the occupants of
the bleacher seats on Saturdays. It
is reported that the pop rally held

These pep-rallies, fight talks and
other forms of ballyhoo are importations from the universities of the
United States. As pointed out In an
article appearing in the Oasette of
last week, they tend to place undue
emphasis on winning a game at the
expense of real sportsmanship. From
the spectator's point of view they may
add to the appeal of the game. But
in themselves they are absurd manifestation of immaturity. The belief
that the amount of college spirit
(whatever that phrase may mean)
possessed by any university is directly proportional to the amount of organized noise their students can
make at a football game is absurd.
The popular belief held is that organized cheering, fight talks and so on,
assist materially in gaining victories
for a team. As before pointed out,
such a belief in the first place puts
undue emphasis on the mere winning
of a contest. Secondly, it is extremely doubtful whether the cheer-leader's
herd is effective with all its direction.
Members of a team on the field never
hear a yell clearly if they are playing
their hardest. The mere fact that
the bleachers are full is an incentive
to better play, and the only effective
cheering at alt from those bleachers,
as far as the players are concerned,
is the spontaneous variety. This, being the expression of individual opinion, applauds good sportsmanship and
clever play, rather than expressing a
wild desire for a win or blood that
possess a crowd trained by fight talks
to demand points rather than sportsmanship.

U. B. C. To Make
Last Bid For
Lipton Cup
With every member of tho squad
flt and ready for action, the Varsity
Canadian Rugby team will make a
final drive for possession of the coveted Lipton Cup, emblematic of the
Senior Grid Championship of B.C.
Under the watchful eye of Dr. Gordon
Burke, the Varsity Coach, the student
aggregation has been put through
several strenuous workouts and tne
U.B.C. mentor is confident that his
charges will vanquish Victoria, on
Saturday, as well as the Meralomas
on the Thanksgiving Day feature.
Led by Captain Sandy Smith at
Snap, the Blue and Gold team will
take the field at Athletlo Park tomorrow afternoon determined to
wipe out the sting of the 8-6 defeat
received at the hands of the Islanders
last year. Except for Gavin Dirom,
the greatest plunging halfback in the
West, who is stilton the injured list,
the Collegians have every member
of the squad that has been into the
game this fall. At inside, Jim Winters, Ernie Peden and Jim Mitchell,
all of whom played on the Intercollegi
' i championship aggregation of lav
ir, will be holding their positions.
Iddles will be selected from Harold
Cliffe and Larry Jack of last season's
team, as well as Bill Williscroft and
Ralph Hall, a pair of promising freshmen.
Dick Farrlngton and Don Tver-
man are probable choices for Wing
with Lyle Jestley in reserve. Cam
Duncan, veteran end man, will work
at Flying Wing along with Dick
Moore. In the Backfleld, Bill Latta,
atar punter and Fred Bolton will a-
8sin oe in uniform, while Murd«*ck.
hodat, Steele and Hedreen will fill
out the half line. Gordon Root and
Scotty Mclnnes are probable quarters.
By taking both fixtures, the Varsity aggregation will step into a tie
for first place with the Meralomas
making a play-off necessary.
The Varsity Senior Soccer squad
will face a stiff schedule this weekend without the services of Bud
Cooke, diminutive inside right, who
sustained a broken leg last Saturday.
Tomorrow the team meets Point Grey
United at Kerrisdale Park while on
Monday Tommy Sanderson's soccer
outfit will travel across the inlet to
Confederation Park to engage Capllano. thought by many to be the pick
of the league.
For the first game Elmer Dickson,
skipper    of   the   scrappy   Juniors,
[will probably fill tbe vacant inside right position,
while on Thanksgiving
day, Cox, a Junior sharpshooter, will take over the
onerous duties of the injured Cooke. The rest of
the team is in good shape
_ and will be all out to take
Klmer Di'ki«nfou,r Poi"t over the weekend.
The team will line up aa follows:
McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Wright
(H), Kozoolin, Buckley; Wright (B),
Dickson (Cox), Costain, Todd (D) and
Todd (A).
One of the most attractive innovations of the season was sponsored
by the Women's Undergraduate Society, at their fashion show, on Saturday, in the Georgian room of the
Hudson Bay, when coeds attired in
the latest feminine apparel swayed
rhythmically to the soft strains of
music, displaying all the vagaries of
fashion to an enthusiastic audience.
Smart sports styles, graceful afternoon dresses and attractive evening
gowns were all displayed with an
admirable sense of fitness by University students chosen especially for
the occasion.

The Varsity second Canadian
Rugby team got away to a bad start
when it lost Its flrst game of the
season to V.A.C. by a 3-0 score, at
Athletic Park, Wednesday night. The
game was chiefly featured uy open
play with large and frequent gains
by both sides. Neither line was
crossed however, all the points being
scored by deadline kicks.
The Clubbers started off wtth a
determined offensive and were soon
far Into Varsity territory. However
the students gained possession of the
ball on their fifteen yard line and
Burgess relieved with a long punt.
Nothing daunted, the speedy V.A.C.
backfleld carried the ball back again
to Varsity's five yard line on a series
of end runs. Here their advance was
stopped and they were forced to kick
to deadline for one point, shortly
before the whistle blew for quarter
In the second period the Varsity
offense began to elide and it marched
down the field ten yards at a time.
Nevertheless, although the students
were dangerous several times during
the quarter, they lacked the ability to
score and remained one point behind
at half time.
V.A.C. again took the offensive in
the third canto, scoring another point
on a kick, after making large gains
through, an aerial attack. Varsity
retorted by carrying the ball down to
its opponents' ten yard line. However, U. B. C. lost possession on a
blocked kick and the play remained
in centre field for the rest of the
The last quarter began inauspici-
ously when Mercer ran back a Varsity
kick fifty yards. But tbe defense tightened up and Varsity took possession of
the ball. It was at this point that Harold Brown, who had been playing brilliantly all evening, came within an
ace ot pulling the game out of the fire.
Morrison carried the ball ten yards
on an end run and then passed to
Brown who raced along the sidelines
for sixty yards, dodging all but the
safety man who barely managed to
stop him. The whistle blew Defore

Aggies Stage Dance
At Killarney Hall
The Interior of Killarney presented
a marked contrast to its fog enveloped
exterior on Tuesday night when members of the Aggie Faculty and their
chosen ladies tripped blithely over the
polished floor to the strains of Jack
Emerson's Orchestra, the occasion being their annual class party.
The committee in charge of the
event had spared no efforts to make
the affair a compl.te success and the
spirit of gaiety and merriment which
prevailed throughout the evening
was ample evidence that its labors
had not been In vain.
Tlie conclusion of supper saw the
distribution, among the merrymakers,
of paper hats, variously shaped noise-
makers and multi-coloured balloons
all of which added to the enjoyment
of the happy throng and tardy gate
crashers arriving from the Science
clays party at the Alma Academy,
presumably In search of a superior
form of entertainment, expressed
themselves as well satisfied with their
decision to transfer patronage.
Patrons for the affair were: Dean
and Mrs. Clement, Professor and
Mrs. King, Professor and Mrs. Wilfred Sadler.

Vancouver College
Beaten by Gridmen
The initial game of the new Inter-
scholastic Canadian Rugby League
took place Wednesday afternoon when
Varsity Juniors demonstrated their
superiority over Vancouver College
by handing that team a 6 to 1 defeat
on their home ground. After playing
until half time without a score, the
College managed to score on a deadline kick in the flrst quarter and held
their lead until late in the last period
when McKnlght, the Varsity right
end fell on a fumbled punt behind the
Vancouver College goal line. Dwyer
converted. This break gave the students a decicive lead which the College were unable to overcome and the
game ended 6-1.
Dwyer stood out on the Varsity offense, gaining repeatedly with his
tricky Droken-flelcf running and long

Artsmen Are Feature
Of Science Party
Science '81, '82 and '88 combined in
their Annual class-party held in the
Alma Academy, Tuesday evening. A
generous sprinkling of Artsmen was
noticed among those present and these
tended, on the whole, to uplift the
general tone of the dance.
As usual, th. Sciencemen showed
themselves good hosts. There was
no crush, the orchestra was invigorating to say the least and the refreshments were adequate. Much
amusement was causod by the ejection
of several prominent "crashes."

Tommy: "What makes you so generous?"
Ernie: "Well, I borrowed his
