Displaying much of fighting apirit
that carried the team to the top of
the league In the first halt of the
season, Varsity's Senior "A" baaketball squad made a determined effort
to land a place in the play-offs In
their game with the Crusaders last
Tuesday night and although they
failed to do so they were by no
means disgraeed.
The game was fast, particularly in
the seeoadi half when both teams
held the upper hand many times
during the session. Varsity took the
lead at the beginning of struggle
and held it during the flrst period,
the score at the close being 11*8. On
resumption ot play the Crusaders
showed muoh more life and after tie-
tot the soore at 18 all, ran ln two
baskets and a free shot to take a 6
point lead. The students came back
with a barrage of long shots netting
them 8 counters. From this point
the score see-sawed until the laat
two minutes when baskets by Mclntyre and Johnston gave the Knights
a hard earned victory, the final score
being 86*89.
The Varaity squad showed a great
improvement over some of the previous performances. The combination
was much better and the defense
was stronger than before. Henderson was the outstanding member of
the team. The elongated centre played a brilliant game both on the defense and offense. Ed. Paulson and
Norm. McDonald worked well at
guard and Laurie Nicholson turned
In a good performance at forward
while Root played his usual aggressive game.
The toam: Nicholson (4), Henderson (10), Paulson (8), McDonald (3),
Root (4), Dunbar, Williams.

FINAL NOON HOUR
RECITAL
The fourth and last of this series
of noon-hour recitals presented by
the University Musical Society, attracted a large audience to the auditorium yesterday. Assisting at this
enjoyable programme were, Miss
Hilda Blnns, Mezzo-Soprano; Miss
Ruby-Jean McEven, contralto; Miss
Dorothy Tennant, violinist; Miss
Irene Bell, pianist, and Jim Hedley,
tenor.
The three singers opened the programme with a trio, 'Gipsy Trail' by
Galloways. All three voices blended
remarkably well. Dorothy Tennant
played a violin obligate and' Irene
Bell accompanied. Hilda Blnns sang
two songs with an easy, flowing
tones. Her sustained notes were
especially noticeable ln the "Slave
Song" by Del Rlego. "Homing" by
the same composer, though of a different character, gave her opportunity for a simple, uneffected Interpretation. Ruby-Jean McEwen also contributed two charming little songs,
"The Light I Love Best" by Hopkins
and Barnes Wells' "I Dunuo." Miss

Alma Mater Sooiety present at a
meeting held Wednesday noon In the
Unlveralty Auditorium.
There was no further discussion ot
the subjeot. All five of the special
recommendationa of the Finanoe
Committee were endorsed the only
opposition being to section (6)
clause (b). A motion for its elimination was defeated . The meeting adjourned before 1 o'clock.
It was later learned that insufficient names were on the sheets which
those present had signed and that a
quorum was not secured. The Students' Council is at present undecided
aa to when the Business Manager
plan will again be brought before the
Alma Mater Sooiety.
Collection Illustrating
Silk Industry Is Donated
Qift of Chttaro TsHyoki to be Displiynd
Ir Ap. Sc. Muslim
Recently the University was very
fortunate to be presented with a col*
lection illustrating the silk Industry
in Japan. The donor of this collection, Mr. Chotaro Tsuyuki of Vancouver, has given htm a valuable
and a Interesting gift, one that
has required considerable time and
a great deal of expense to gather together.
The collection begins with the small
egg ot the silk worm before it is
hatched, aud continues, step by step,
showing the growth of the worm, the
spinning and gathering ot the silk,
and the finished product ready to be
shipped. Numerous kinds of silk
worms are also displayed, the Chinese,
Japanese and crosses between the
two. To supplement the collection,
several pictures, Illustrating processes that cannot be exhibited, are added, making In its entirety, a very
complete and interesting exhibition
of the silk Industry.
The collection has only Just been
received, but will soon be on dlspluy
In the museum In the Applied Science  Building.

Rev. C. Banks Outlines
Missionaries' A ims
In an address on, "The Future of
Christianity," the Rev. C. E. M.
Danks spoke on the aim of missionary work, and i.he true measure of
Its results. Statistics show, he said,
that there are 626 millions of Christians in the world to-day. This census, however, ls arrived at by taking the sum of the populations of
Christian nations rather than the
number of Individuals who really believe the gospel of Christ.
In missionary effort much seed falls
by the wayside and bears no fruit,
but as ln the parable of the "Sower"
some does And good soil. It ls the
number of those who really accept
Christ, few though they may be, that
the work finds Its justification. Missionaries, he said, need not be discouraged, because they do not see
whole communities rejecting heathenism. Christianity ls flrst and last un
Individual thing ln the hearts of men.
It Is not a mass movement.
The Rev. 0 H. Wilson, B.A., of
Vancouver will address the next meeting of tho V. C. U. to be held In the
Arts '204 ut 12.10 on Monday, February 26. Everybody welcome.

Action Comis as thi Risult of Student Demand Following Chaws
Made hy "Varsity"
A complete and thorough investigation of the existing method of student
government la going to be made at the University of Toronto, Is the latest
report from the scene of action at Toronto.
A special committee of the Student Council reached this decision apparently in response to the Insistent domanda made by Ryan and his atudenta
ot tbe University. The special committee is to be composed only ot disinterested persona; that, is it shall not consist of members of the Board of Governors of the Joint executive of either tbe men's or women's administrative
councils, or ot oither the pas'; or present membera of the "Varaity."
"Our charges still stand" declared
Editor Ryan. "We said and shall
continue to say that officials abuse
the Instrument fashioned for them
and by them. Students were lob*
beyed in committee, a false statement waa Issued to the press, and
the editor's removal was attempted
over the heads of those supposed to
represent the students. If a paper
ls to be more than a bulletin board
it must operate with a certain scope
and leeway, otherwise it becomes a
cross between a calendar and something in |whlch to wrap up the
laundry."
Tho present deadlock 1b the culmination of a series of disagreements
with university authorities and students. Early in the year Ryan annoyed flrat year Sclencemen by condemning them editorially for their
part tn wrecking a downtown theatre.
Objection were raised over his references to personalities. Further trouble
was caused by a number ot minor
errors in the news section, Ryan
countered these charges by obaerving
that owing to the salary cuts he was
now being placed ln the position
where he was required to bring out
as good a product with far less facil-
I itlos than any editor had had previously. The students he claimed who
are presumed to be the judges of the
paper have nothing to do with the
fixing ot expenses. They have no
more to do with these regulations, he
declared, than they are moant to
have with "student government."
Although the joint executive ls presumed to be a student cabinet, Ryan
objected, yet five non-student votes
out of a total of eighteen are present.
His dismissal, he contended, proved
his assertion that these live non-
student votes did carry a Rreat weight
ln tho deliberations, and that individual student Initiative waa being
stl/led.

Warden and Lord
To Go to Rhodesia
Immediately following the examinations in April, Tom Warden and
Cliff Lord, fifth year Geology men
will leave to take up work with the
Geological Staff ln Northern Rhodesia,
Africa. The information has Just been
received from Dean Brock who obtained word from Africa a short time
ago.
Last year Dean Brock was asked
tor three men from the University of
B. C. to be sent to Africa for work
with the Geological Staff prospecting
mining concessions In Northern Rhodesia. The men were chosen and left
last spring. Their work proved so
satisfactory that word'was again received for two more, Warden and
Lord being chosen for thetr outstanding ability along geological lines.
The area to which they go ls an
Immense expanse of territory, being
slightly larger than one third of B.
C. It Is a highly mineralized district,
and the whole area has to be prospected for minerals.
Warden and Lord will be away several years, and the experience they
will gain will be extremely valuable,
standing them in good stead when
they return tor work on their Doctor's degrees.

Scholarship Applications
Are Due Soon
Although most of the University
scholarships are awarded automatically as a result ot examination re
suits, there are some which require
formal application by candidates.
Stanley W. Mathews, University registrar, announces that several of
these applications are due before the
last day of examinations.
Class Runners Prepare

no clasa has an apparent advantage.
The showing of Arts '31 in the

STUDENTS GIVE
PAPERS AT LLC.
Varltd Sibiwtsi Art Trtatti !■ Ftw
JMrisus
Four papers of unusual merit were
presented by student members of the
Engineering Institute of Canada at
the University Wednesday when a
large and appreciative audience spent
an interesting and instructive even*
ing. The papers were aa follows:
The Possibilities of Tidal Power—C.
R. Cornish; Modern Developments la
Cellulose Chemistry—A. I. Fell; The
Zinc. Reduction Plant, Trail, B. C.~»
J. B. C. Fraser; The Gonowlngo
Hydro-Electric Development—J. fl.
Macdonald.
In the first paper Mr, Cornish dealt
with the possibilities of tidal power.
The various schemes for utilising the
tremendous power of the sea were
outlined. These were roughly divided
into one-basin and two-basin development with the single basin proving
the most important economically. An
interesting observation made by Mr.
Cornish was that out of twenty places
in the world with excessive tidal
power, eight are in Canada. The Bay
of Fundy has the greatest possibilities in this line. In B. C, however,
Mr. Cornish concluded, the opportun*
itles for extensive tidal development
are not very great.
Mr. Fell must have gone to great
pains with his paper on Cellulose
Chemistry and it ia a pity that bis
treatment waa so highly tochnioal
that few in the audience understood
the whole address. The uninitiated
gleaned the vivid impression, however, that cellulose plays a most important part in the life of all.
Cellulose* Is the • chief constituent
of all plants and is extracted chiefly
from cotton, hemp, straw, oet, A
great list of diverse products and byproducts comes from this innocent-
appearing substance. Artificial silk,
leather and ivory, shatter-proof glass,
high explosives, and most Important
of all, paper, are extracted.
The author closed with the striking fact that during practically every
moment of the day one uses some
article made from cellulose. From
automobiles to sausages, and from
plunos to billiard balls, cellulose can-

ASPECTS OF S. C. M. FEATURE
IN NOON ADDRESS BY
H.AVISON
"Divinity and love cannot be explained,—and in the same way lt, ls
difficult to analyse the S. C. M.," said
Harry Avlson, ln an address on
"National and International Aspects
of the S.C.M. on Tuesday, February
10 ln Agriculture 100. Mr. Avlson has
travelled extensively ln connection
with the movement, and has visited
most of the Canadian universities.
The S. C. M. grew out of a reactionary feeling against many ot the
older established organizations, after
the war, in 1920.
"Who are the members of S. C.
M.?" Mr. Avlson answered this
question by explaining that those utu-
dents who endeavored to use the
words of Jesus "Whoever shall do
the wfll of my father he Is my brethren" as a guide, and line up this
teachings,  were  members.
"What ls fellowship like?" was Mr.
Avison's next question, which he answered by saying that the S. C. M.
wts fundamentally a friendly movement. No mechanical barriers were
raised to conceal people's natural
feelings and there was no room tor
bluffing.
Second ln Importance to friendliness was freedom, This Included
freedom to discuss questions of deep
significance to the Individual, who
was secure In the knowledge that
his problem would meet with) sympathetic understanding.
Mr, Avlson referred to the new
conception of heaven as a direct contradiction to the old idea of a heaven
for sluggards. He concluded by expressing his hepplness ln the Interest taken in the S. C. M. and ln
religion which was to him "the greatest thing In the world." THE    UBYSSEY

UTILITY OR ORNAMENTATION P
An ornamental base for the new flag pole, is receiving favorable consideration from the graduating executives as a Valedictory Gift. Unfortunately the aesthetic zeal of our class leaders
has exceeded their knowledge of facts. An ornamental base for
has exceeded their knowledge of facts. An ornamental base
which will cost several thousand dollars, is, according to information from the Land Department, to be presented by the company
which is so generously donating the flag pole.
This leaves the subject of the Valedictory Gift open to further
discussion. Surely the graduating classess of '29 will leave
something of real use to the University and its coming generations of students. It is impossible to compare the gifts of the
last two graduating years—the memorial bench in front of the
Library given by '28 and the equipment of the Health Centre,
presented by '27—without hoping that '29 will leave behind a
memorial as useful as that of '27. We do not wish to disparage
the gift of '28 but we feel that our University is still extremely
youthful and in need of so much improvement that a useful gift
is more commendable than a purely ornamental one.
Our criticism would, of course, be worthless if we could not
bring forth some constructive suggestions. We would advise,
therefore, that members of the graduating year consider gifts
such as:—certain specific equipment for the new gymnasium,
a donation of money for the expenses of a campaign necessary
to procure equipment, or supplemental funds for new books In
each department.
WHAT 18 YOUR OPINION P
In an attempt to promote thought, criticism, and co-operation on a controversial subject which directly concerns University students and those interested in University life, the Ubyssey
proposes to interview various people on the campus for their
views on fraternities.
We feel we are justified in taking this action because either
for better or worse fraternities are growing on this campus.
Soon fraternity houses will be added to the present number of
buildings around U. B. C, and established fraternity houses
will come greater fraternity influence.
Questions asked of those interviewed will include: "What is
you opinion of fraternities in general?" "Do you think U. B. C.
would be better with or without fraternities?" "Why?" "What
is your experience with fraternities or lack of fraternities in other
universities?" "In what way do fraternities benefit or harm a
university?" "If fraternities are to continue to be recognized at U
B.C. what regulations, if any, would you suggest?" "If so, in what
way?" "Should fraternities be allowed to place new fraternities
on probation because of their youth, or should all fraternities be
treated as equal until their actions warrant probation?" "Hnve
you any further ideas on the subject?"
We ask our readers to co-operate and answer questions
with the spirit in which they are asked,—namely for the good of
U. B. C.

Toronto Investigations To Be Held
(Continued from Page 1)
the board of governors does not seem
likely to terminate very soon. The
only appearance at present of a better understanding ls the likelihood
of Sir Robert Falconer presenting a
petition to the board of governors
for an Investigation. This Is Jthe
stand taken by Ryan and his adherents and they are prepared to take
the matter up before the hlgheBt University court, They hope to effect
this course through the presentation
of the petition by Sir Robert Falconer.
An entirely new angle of the case,
showing the strength of student
opinion behind Ryan, Is the decision
of R. C. Mitchell, editor pro tern, to
discontinue his leadership. No applications, as yet, have been mado
for the post of editor-ln-chlef.
The view taken Is that It ts not
the "petting editorial" which Is the
true cnusa of the trouble, but the
mora vital issue over the validity of
student self government tn Toronto
University. BMItor Ryan's declamation against the board ot governors.
Is that not being able to effect his
dismissal through the student executive they employed the arbitrary tactics of muscling his press and peremptorily dismissing him. This Is
the supreme Issue on which he ls now
taking his stand.

than that.   IT JUST CAN'T BE DONE.
You can wiggle your dividers as much as you like—
you cart let A equal Hastings Street and B equal a
given amount of traffic, but you cannot increase, by
one jot, the amount of traffic that street will hold—let
alone multiply it by ten.
Yet that's what people are trying to do. Vancouver ii
growing eo fast that it will soon be ten times the sisa
it was 25 years ago. More and more people make the
daily trip to and from the city as time goes on. The
distance is too far to walk—they must have transportation. But the streets are no wider; there is a
definite limit to the amount ol vehicular traffic they
will hold.
What is the solution to this problem?
Easy I It's the street car. One street car wlU carry
as many people into the city as 38 automobiles—carry
them safely and without bother, Congested streets
are the Invariable remit of misuse of automobilei in
Ihe downtown part of the city, And congestion hinders
growth.

DENUNCIATION
Who cries that we have grieved him
over much?
I'll bite? How muoh? A coat of loam
and mire
Of fitful hearful phrases thwarts desire
To understand. But that's the genius'
touch!
He has esoaped intelligence's clutch
And understands his sonnet all alone;
Word whitewash with fantastic
phrases sown
Has covered it,—receive it then as
such!
Until the glimmering dawn hao lit
the east
Conjecture racked my poor old head
ln vain;
Ye gods, I'll seek and slay the specious beast
And with his pome beat out his banal
brain,
If he who wrote the most and thought
the least
Had anything to tell, he'd make it
plain.

CRASHING DANCE
Out of the darkness
Redolent of gas and antl-freeze
And misty with the bitter smoke of
back-fires—
Out of the darkness
Into the glare of the lamp-light,
Come the Stags, gaily crashing.
And they exult, feet flapping-
Exult ln the jazz-hounds
That, hooting melodiously,
Are hearts of syncopation.
The Stags dance and whirl
Tuning themselves to the rhythm of
the Drag
And boldly cutting ln.
Wilder la the tempo-
Whirling,  darting,  dancing,—
Till tho Stags turn to see the
Bouncer;
And the bitter smoke of the backfires
Drifts  wraithlike,—the   shroud  of
their passing.

TO-DAY
Yesterday the way to Varsity
Seemed very far.
I clanked along the road
Swiftly, and the eyes of traffic cops
Peered at me through the sharp
spear grass
And strange dlsorted men from
stumps and shrubs
Scowled their warnings as I passed.
The wind sighed wearily like a
Matnook child
Crying for a quorum in a crowded caf.
I sped and often skidded
And the way was long.—But today
The woods are still
I love the lisping leaves
And  soft pillowed violets,  etc.,  etc.,
For Sitting Bull Is gone.

Preturla, Balkans, lurepe, Feb. 28—
report by a Literary Sdlter. War has
been declared between Preturla and
Malaria, two small Balkan States that
nestle high up in the mountains
where the mountain goats roam, the
wild eagles come home to rest, and
tbe casual traveller passes over the
rocky roads to other countries of
larger extent since he cannot appreciate thu beauty in the true, simple
life of the average Malarian or Pe-
trurlan who spends most of his ex*
istenoe cultivating a barren plot of
ground or hunting the wild animals
which abound in this land where apparently there is no life on the sur*
face but in truth the eyes of the
forest are many for not only do they
live here in peace, but lt Is seldom
that anyone disturbes them in their
tranquil everyday destinies. The
League of Nations will try arbitration to settle the dispute.
Smugglers Vanquished
By Customs Officers
Lulu Island, Southern Canada-
Same date as above—Crates of eggs
with an estimated value 100,000 dollars were seised by customs officials
and coastguardsmen here early today.
The culprits were apprehended
when they attempted to smuggle the
goods accroBs the line Into Vancouver. An unforeseen cackle from one
of the eggs revealed the deep laid
plot. Advancing under a fusillade of
eggs, the officers finally managed to
drive away the smugglers and to ob
tain possession of tho henfruit.

NIGHT-SQUINT8   AT   CH'CAG^
With apologies to Chuck Sandburg,
this affront to Intelligence ls offered.
The street canyons roar at the night
purples.
Teameos, harness-bulls, taxis, truck-
bozos and white-wings raise the
voice of the streets,—
"We work because we have to and
you can't make us quit.
We are the cat's pajamas.
We are IT.
We begin in the morning and we lay
off a while at night, but we always are on the job again ln the
morning.
We are the big noise on this little
old globe,
We work because we want to and you
can't make us quit."
"Nix, nix," Is the spiel of the skyscrapers, shrouding their heads
ln star-born night-mist.
"What about the moon-riders?
What of the blue horizons that only
we can see?
What of the red-gold of sun-rise over
the railway yards?
What ot the golden cloud-dust over
the prairies?"
But the street-canyons never lay off.
Their foghorn roar goes splitting past
the Sky-scrapers.
"We work because we have to and
you can't make us quit."

Second Canadiin Rugby
Tean To Hay Richmond
On Saturday at 1.00 the Inter
mediate Canadian Rugby team plays
Richmond on the Varsity oval. The
players have been out every morning in the past week and promise a
good fast game.
The present team ts probably the
most promising Varsity has turned
out in recent years. At the beginning of the season there were many
green men but under the able coach*
ing ot Dr. Burke and Oliver Cam*
mossl a flrstolass squad has been
formed.
The line Is exceedingly strong and
Includes such men as Wrlneh and
Nichols, both of whom tip the scales
at a hundred and eighty, while the
rest of the men are right behind.
In the backfleld there is a set of
fast men who are hard to stop and
they promise the spectators lots of
action.
Engineers Hear Four Papers
(Continued from Page 1)
not be escaped by anyone.
Mr. Fraser had first-hand Information about the great Trail Smelter
and managed to make plain to all the
intricate processes used in refining
slno. There are four steps in tbe
process, according to Mr. Fraser,—
roasting, leaching, electrolysis and
melting for shipment. The ore was
traoed through the smelter from the
raw ore till when the pure metal ls
poured out into moulds. When Mr.
Fraser worked In the smelter two
years ago the capacity waa fifteen to
sixteen thousand tons of ore per day
but this summer it is expected that
about twenty-four thousand tons will
be bandied daily. This difference is
due to the vast increase in production
of the Sullivan mine.
In the last paper Mr. Macdonald
presented in an extremely Interesting
manner a matter which was new to
practically all. The Conowlngo Hydro-
Electric Development utilizes the
power of the Susquoh River ln Maryland. Mr. Macdonald overhelmed his
hearers with a succession of vast dimensions. The impression which remained was that this engineering
feat was comparable to the Panama
Canal as a triumph in harnessing the
forces of Nature. Mr. Macdonald explained a complicated diagram which
showed a thorough understanding of
this great structure which will save
Philadelphia ueveu-hundred and fifty
thousand tons of coal annually. A
number of slides made the working
parts clear to all,
The meeting closed with a number
of Sonlor members expressing admiration and appreciation of the papers
given by the students.

Editor's Noto
The editor wls'nesito acknowledge the
receipt of a second letter from "Two
Optimists" and thank them for their
explanation, and Interest In the
"Ubyssey," Evidently we had ml*-
understood the two optimists, so wo
owe them an explanation. They have
pot misconstrued our attitude when
they think It Is the mutual ambition
of the Publications board to Improve
Its publications, nor are we nt all
dissatisfied with our lot, We appreciate criticism from all reader* and
realise the value of criticism In
publishing a college newspaper, but
We ask readers to remember in thetr
criticism certain practical difficulties,
{ltnllar  to  those  of  other  organlia-
Ions,  under which  the  Publications
board must work.
Editor of the "Ubyssey",
Dear Sir:
Owing to the great amount of space
given to the support of the Manager
Plan in last Ubyssey and considering the Influence wielded by your
somewhat lengthy editorial, we feel
that the other side of tbe question
should be more fully presented.
The Manager Plan is a new Idea.
The proponents of the plan declare
they want only an opportunity to
demonstrate its utility. They claim
much good may be gained and in their
opinion, no harm result from the
adoption of such a plan. But the
same plea may be made for the plan
which the Students' Council put into
effect last Fall. This Is the flrst year
it has ever been tried; the Finance
Committee found absolutely no fnult
with it and so fat* It has proved Itself
te be very efficient. There Is every
reason why this plan should be el veil
an opportunity to develop and perfect
Itself next year.
Little is to be gained by laying a destructive attack upon the proposed
Manager Plan. In ail fairness both
sides must admit that the plan containing an undergraduato manager has
never been submitted to the test of
actual operation. Assertions ranging
all the way from dire failure to greatest success can be made about the
plan and all lacking in the truth gained only by experience. But there is
something about which we can all
talk and with proper assurance, that
ts, the system ln operation at present.
In starting the Curator system with
its departure from old methods and
with its new difficulties to be encountered the Council saw fit to pay the
curator 260 dollars. Under this system we bave unified buying, selling
and distributing of equipment. The
curator is solely responsible to Council. This year alone it is a demonstrated fact that the curator will save
at least his salary. Now that the
work is well established it is reasonably safe to say that a great reduction can be made in the salary which
It is necessary to pay the curator. If
the Curator System has accomplished
so much ln its first year why not let
It continue to Improve In efficiency
and to profit by the valuable suggestions contained in the report ot the
Financial Committee?
This year the Treasurer established
a thouroughly sound system of bookkeeping which is capable of supplying
Council with full Information on costs,
receipts, expenses of particular activities or our financial condition at
any time. This year Council is carefully filing all reports, budgets and
other reference material of use to
future Councils. Thus, with a good
bookkeeping system and a wealth of
reference material combined with the
wide experience of all Council members of student activities an exceedingly adequate financial system has
been developed. Not three people but
the whole Council guides financial
policy under the particular supervision of the President and Treasurer.
It is the opinion of practically every
one closely associated with the workings of tlie student government this
year that the system is perfectly
sound and ls only lucking In full development. Hut we have years ahead
in which to develop tho plan so that
it will fill our needs in every particular.
It must be remembered that the
Finance Committee tn no way criticized the working of the new Curator
system. Their report dealt with conditions In previous years and suggested as a remedy a totally different
plan. We strongly advise that the
present system be allowed to develop
Itself and earnestly point out the
grave danger of too readily condemning the present system and substituting one of whose practical workings
we know so little.

dents as a whole.
The adoption of the Manager System is an issue of general policy; the
students have a decision to make
which is going to effect seriously the
direction in which the University ls to
develop in the future. The adoption
of Student Manager System is going
to establish the principle of paying
students tor work which they do In
their spare time for their society.
We are not the paid servants of the
Alma Mater Society; we are its members, by whose Interest and loyalty
it exists; if there is work to be done
which the Alma Mater Sooiety cannot ask of Its members voluntarily,
because of tbe amount of work which
It entails, let us employ some one
who is capable of doing tt, aud pay
him for his services. Let It not
be a member, whose privilege and responsibility It is to glvo, and upon
whose Interest and public spirit the'
society depends.
Whether the majority of the Alma
Mater Society is In favor of paying
students for work which has hitherto
been voluntary, is, however, not, the
point. The essential is that every
student shall realize the far-reaching
Issue at stake, namely whether the
University shall pay students tor
work done for the Alma Mater Society or not.
If everyone realized' the Importance of this issue, I am sure that no
meeting on the subject would have so
small an attendance as that of Wednesday.
Yours very truly,
E. BEATRIX CLEGG.
TEXAS BILL TO ABOLISH FRATERNITIES
Abolition of fraternities on the
campus of the University of Texas
has been presented in the form of a
bill to the State Legislature of Texas.
The state senator advocating the bill
believes that regulation would be
preferable providing that it would
work, but in his opinion the only
solution is abolition.'

To the  Editor,
Dear Sir:
The small size of the meeting on
Wednesday, for the discussion and
possible adoption of the Student manager system, aa recommended by the
Fnanco Commltttee. show* that either
the students are satisfied with what
Is being done ln financial affairs at
present, and are not interested In a
change, or thnt they do not realize
that In thla plan an Important principle ts at stake, which concerns the
future development of the University in all departments, not only in finance, which Is after all the business of
the   specialist   rather   than   the   stu-
Editor, Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:—-
Referring to the letters in the last
two Issues of your paper concerning
the destruction ot a certain cherished
relic of the Aggies. The first letter
claimed that a few of the first-year
Science men perpetrated" an act of
wanton destruction." However thanks
to the sportsmanship of the Aggies
one of them wrote a second letter
correcting the writers of the flrst
and pointing out that it was not "an
act of wanton destruction," on the
part of the Science men.
But even tbe second letter stands
correction since the writer claims
that the Science men entered the pre-
clnts of the Aggie common room
where they removed the work of art
in question. Such however is not the
case as the ill-fated coco's head was
hanging outside of one of the
windows of the Aggie building, put
there by persons unknown, but certainly not Science men, more or less
as a temptation to students in other
faculties.
It is not our Intention to escape
any responsibility or blame for this
regrettable incident, but rather to
have an understanding. Unfortunately those who took part did not realize
how highly the Aggies prized their
relic from Fairview days. May we
then express our sincere regrets to
the Aggies for their unreplaceable
loss and hope that good sportsmanship and friendliness will continue to
exist between the two faculties.

The "talkie" ls evidently here to
stay. It is very young yet, and as lt
grows It will overcome some of its
present faults. The speech and other
sound effects heighten the dramatic
possibilities of the "silver screen" and
make It more realistic, although som*1
of the long conversations "take the
move out of the movies," as one wit
has put lt.
It seems strange that the voices
cannot be better co-ordinated. The
men's voices can usually bo described
as "refined English," but there ls nothing either refined or English about the
nasal tones of the actret.ses. Purely
better attention could be paid to
this detail, especially when the plot
is laid In London, and the characters
presumably, English speaking people.
To Co-ed's Ball takes plate this
evening. It Is variously regarded as
the culmination of the emancipation
of women; an opportunity for tho
"wall flower" to show her preference;
and a ruso of the Women's Undergraduate Society tn ruiso luiitls for
lheir Women's Building.
This principle of "Women's rl.*litn"
has been carried even a step further
In some Universities, We know of
out where the third Thursday .if e*,-
uv.v mouth Is reserved f-r Women to
no their "dating."
The graduating classes have again
decided to hold their picnic at Wigwam Inn. There was a auugoHtlnn
that another dance be held, eithei In
town or at tho Grouse Mountain Chalet. Tho classes of '28, however, hud
an excellent outing at Wigwam; why
can  we not do  the same?
