"Awakening," "Confusion," and

Letters' Club
Hears Paper
On Novelist
Nobel  Prise   Winner   Discussed  By
Bob McLarty, New Member. Elected
"Sinclair Lewis" was the subject
of Bob McLarty'. Letters Club paper
on Tuesday night, read at the home
of Mrs. J. N. Ellis.
"In his youth he gained a thorough
first-hand experience of life in a
small middle-western town" Mid Mr.
McLarty. "The years after graduation (from Yale) which he spent as
Journalist, editor, hack-writer for
various publication, in a. many
place, of the United State., gave him
a broad, comprehensive knowledge
of the whole of his country, such a.
only the man who travel, can gain."
Hi. first book wa. "Our Mr.
Wrenn," published In 1914. Then
came "The Trail of the Hawk," in
1915. "The theme i. a favorite one
ot Mr. Lewi.'—the cramping and repressive effect of having to make
a living—having to hold a position
in society in order to bo a good,
conventional American citizen."
Lewis Succeed.
"The Job," "The Innocent.," and
"Free Air," followed, and then to
1920 the writer achieved great success with "Main Street," a book
which aroused a storm of controversy. "The author ha. tried to tell the
the story of all America——It 1. a
story of dull mediocrity, complacent
and satisfied with itself—Mr. Lew-
la seemed to settle down to his teak

and illiterate standard, of life, and In
return they offer him the tuual reward, of spaciou. good-fellowship,
an ugly but extremely modern house,
a six cylinder car and a popularity
which he may retain just as long
as he trods the beaten path. Babbitt
is vain, uncultured, a college graduate, a pusher, a boomer, a jollier,
chuck full of 'zip' and 'zest.' He
echoes all the latest slogans, repeats
the dubious stories, orates at club
dinners, takes for granted that whatever is business practice is right,
gets his politics at second hand or
third hand and is a successful church
booster, despite occasional breaks in
his personal morality."
Describe. Style
In this book, said Mr. McLarty,
there is better balance, more developed powers of observation and analysis, and Lewi. ha. achieved the
art of satire.

M. has chosen five topics that are of
interest and Importance to the student today. They are "Pacific Area
Problems," a subjeot that has arisen
within a very short time; "Personal
Problems," "Religion on the Campus"
and "Jesus in the Records." The last
topic will be discussed by an advanced group which has been studying it
before, and by a freshman group,
which will approach It for the first
time. Anyone who would be interested
in participating in informal discussion
of any of these subjects is asked to
sign in the S. C. M. room as soon as
possible. Competent leaders are being chosen.

Light And Love
"Life, light, love, are the three
words which answer our every need,"
said the Reverend Mr. Campbell as
he addressed the V. C. U. on Wednesday noon.
He went on to show how much the
Christian life centred around the
thoughts and ideas expressed by these
words. "But these are not sufficient,"
he further said, "We must walk in the
light." He then pointed out the joy
there is in fellowship with Christ and
what it means to each one who enjoys that close walk with Him.

Debating at the University of B. C. has apparently seen its best days. Was a time when
this was one of the major activities on the campus 1>ut now according to some of the officials
of the club it is on the verge of being wiped
out. No inter-collegiate contests have been arranged so far and there is little likelihood that
any will be set for the coming session.
This shows that the club has reached its
lowest ebb. In 1928, the halycon days of the
forenciclsts both men and women strove for
positions on the teams that met opponents
from American and Eastern Canadian colleges.
There is no reason for the students of today
being unable to revive the former glory of the
club and developing into the Demosthenes' of
The why and wherefore of the club's downfall can be found where it is always found
and that is in the well-known student lethargy, passivity or call it what you will coupled
with the indifferent manner in which the society waa handled by former officers.
Th» new executive for the year will have to
build up the club again from the shattered
ruins of last year's forensic edifice. If they
can do so they will pull the society out of the
mire and place U. B. C. once more on an equal
debating rating with other universities.
The great Mr. Butterfield, self-appointed
critic of everything in general, has seen fit to
deride the initiation ceremonies of last Saturday. No doubt a dignified personage like Mr.
Butterfield would shrink from the indignity
of the "ignorant hazing" meted out to the
Frosh. The point he fails to grasp is that the
Freshmen like it. In bygone days, perhaps at
the instigation of our friend Mr. Butterfield,
the Freshman class of Arts '29 was admitted
to college without any such barbarous orgies.
The howls of disappointment that arose from
these fortunate frosh would no doubt have surprised our humanitarian critic.
As long as the initiation is kept within the
bounds set by the Students' Council, no harm
will be done to any victim of the proceedings
and a great deal of enjoyment will be derived
by both freshmen and sophomores.
We regret that the idea has no "made in B.
C." label, but if Mr. Butterfield would examine his own august journal he would find
that it is following the traditions of American
rather than those of British journalism.
We are afraid that this University will continue on its unregenerate path. Mr. Butter-
fied and his friends the Hottentots, which he
purports to admire will have to seek elsewhere
for a place to indulge their dignified aspirations.
The "Ubyssey" joins with Vancouver in expressing regret for the passing of Henry Curtis
Shaw, member of the Board of Governors of
the University of British Columbia.
He took an active part in all the proceedings of the Board, and was a faithful attendant
at all the meetings. His interest was chiefly in
furthering the building of the University, and
especialy in enlarging the scope of the Department of Agriculture.
Magistrate Shaw was a man whose outstanding work for Vancouver might well have
excused him from further service. It was the
good fortune of this University that he found
time in a busy life to bring this institution his
great kindness and wisdom.
What man thath done, man can do.

One rather large and bewildered shoe is
kicking around the Pub office these days, and
its plight touches me so deeply that I herewith
appeal to the owner to come and collect his
property. I have a strong suspicion
An that it belongs to a Freshman: let
Appeal      me warn him. if he is still alive, that
uness he turns up before Silo Vance
solves the Handbook Mystery, I'll put that
sleuth on his trail. I will not stand by and see
such a good old shoe deserted.
"Not bad at all," and "quite an experience,"
were the comments that Charlie Crane made to
me on the recent initiation
Charlie, in spite of his lack of sight and
hearing, is one of the keenest stu-
Charlie dents in the Freshman class. His
Crane handicap is very severe, but, like
Helen Keller, he has learned to
speak—and he possesses a very active mind.
Particularly fond of the classics, he has a broad
fund of knowledge in this and other fields that
gives him a considerable edge on most of his
classmates, His industry and intense interest
will ensure him academic success.
Charlie was determined not to miss the initiation last Saturday night, and although he
was, I believe, slightly disappointed at not being tossed in a sheet, yet he enjoyed the, proceedings, and the rugby game that followed,
and the monster bonfire that concluded the evening.
Contrary to what one might think, talking to
Charlie presents litte difficulty. It takes about
fifteen minutes to learn the "manual," and after that speed comes with practice. For the
benefit of friends, I am going to ask the Editor
to publish instructions about this simple sign

Late last spring the Letters Club and the
Publications Board issued a Chapbook of student verse. Bound in a blue and gold cover, the
collection consists of nineteen poems by members of the Letters Club and con-
The tributors to The Ubyssey's Lit-
Chapbook erary Supplements. The last effort of this nature was in 1922,
when an excellent chapbook was compiled. At
the price of one dollar a copy, expenses were
met by the receipts.
Such productions are a credit to the University, a sign of cultural progress, and an encouragement to those of creative talent. It is
to be hoped that another period of inactivity
In this Held will not ensure.
The 1931 volume is on sale at the Bookstore,
at twenty-five cents a copy. This is a student
undertaking, supported by last year's Council, and if all copies are sold, a handsome profit
will be made. Surely the student body will support the Chapbook. The quality of the Work is
very good and the nominal price of the book
is within the means of all. It is just a matter of
taking the trouble to drop in at the Bookstore
and part with the sum of two bits.

A friend sends me an interesting clipping of
a drug store advertisement which exclaims:
"Gift Centre! Birthday Gifts, Wedding Gifts,"
Etc. And it adds: "Do not forget that our prescription department is the real
The Raison centre of our activities."
d' etre Yes, it has come to that—the
drug store must remind people
what its primary business it. Universities are
analogous. Students, as my friend points out,
sometimes need to be reminded that academic
work is the real purpose of a university—there
are so many attractive sidelines. And students
are quite frequently reminded of it, especially
in the opening wooks of a session. It might help
if the Calendar requested, in red ink, on its
staid grey cover: "Do not forget that our academic work is the real centre of our activities."

Minister of Great Britain—that slow, old-fashioned land—such a person is still regarded as
somewhat outre in this great, progressive Canada of ours. However, since the Muck Editor
has forced my hand, I must bear whatever
odium this disclosure of my leaning brings.
While I will not compete with him, therefore,
I am eager to co-operate to the extent of offering some helpful advice
I suggest, for one thing, Mr. Muck Editor,
that the quotations in What People Are Saying be accurately recorded. I myself, was the
victim of malicious misquotation in the last
issue, being credited with "Hurro Keet," when
my actual words were "Hullo, Keed!" That sort
of thing is very rank—misquotation, I mean.
Again, let not the wrong pictures be ascribed
to the right persons. Shades of Shrdlu! Last
time the bright physiognomy of Oscar Scrib-
blewell was exhibited as Rufus W. McGoofus!
Oscar, it will be remembered, was the versatile
scribe who was associated with Arnold Henderson in "The Return of Chang Suey," while
Rufus is U. B. C.'s perennial student.
As a further indication of my spirit of cooperation, let me offer the following for W. P
A. S.:

It Is with considerable astonish

me that the loss of revenue suffered

I am not however in favour of o

of revenue-paying display., but
would sugest that this work be kept
in the hands of the student, as It
is an opportunity for them to obtain
experience of a valuable nature
which they could not otherwise procure.
Hoping you will take this matter
up, I am,
Yours sincerely,

The Hazing
By Chat. Allen Crane
On Saturday afternoon, September
26, a friend of mine, Ronald Grantham, who is a student, taking a
post-graduate course at the University of British Columbia, and i. columnist to the "UbysMy," the organ
of the University, came to my residence at half-past four.
Having donned myself In khaki
trousers borrowed from my tutor,
James Dunn, and one ot my khaki
flannel shirts, I had some nipper
after which Ronald Grantham and
1 set out for Athletic Park.
We alighted from the tram-cur at
Granville Street and Fourth Avenue,
and had but a short distance to cov
er before entering Athletic Park,
which is In close proximity to False
We went down into the gymna*i

this purpose, I do not know. Kb!

and other substances were utilized
for th. purpose of statnin* and
smearing the Freshmen duiins the
"hazing" ceremony. Energetic sophomores carried out the persecution.
No sooner wa. my nose coloured red
than I went into the park, where I
was instructed to kneel at Intervals,
walk over two plank, and roll over
on a barrel, a. I made my way to
the stand—a stand with wai., eight
in number, one above another,
Meanwhile my face was coated with
substances, and my hair wa. smeared
with kaUomine which later made
some of the hair stand on end a.
stiff a. th. quill, of a porcupine.

over the part below my chin .melt

not let my olfactory nerve, deceive
me. Though my persecutor, exer
cised leniency upon me, many ot the
"frosh" were, paddled severely.
Grantham had clung to me tenaciously all thi. time, although he
confessed that a. he was In hi. ordinary clothe, he did not feel entirely secure among a tumultuous
crowd of blackened pyjama-clad
As soon i a. abut two hundred
Freshmen had collected themselves
around and upon the stand, an announcer spoke before the almost
riotous crowd, saying that no pyjama
parade waa to march down town for
If such a parade was to do ao and
damage was done to property the
provincial government threatened to
reduce the grant of the Univewlty.
The obstreporou. "frosh" shouted
back in reply, '!Get a new government," and many ot them threatened
to turn table, upside down. Jack
Thomson, a member of the students'
council and president of the Men'.
Undergraduate Society, spoke to the
"frosh" in an attempt to calm them
down, but his hearers hooted at him
and some dirty clothes were hurled
at him, one hitting him on the head.
The upper-class students, however,
managed to put the energies of the
recalcitrants to something more profitable, i.e., yell practice.
The yelling practice lasted until
eight o'clock when a Canadian Rutf-
by football match was started, In
which the University of British Columbia was outplayed by New Westminster (two points to three). When
the teams ceased to play at half-
time for a few minute, the "frosh"
rushed down from the stands into
the field and ran around, hand in
hand, together. Then they soon
seated themselves again on the stand
and the team, returned to the field
to resume their play.
On the preceeding day group, of
Freshmen, under the enslaving supervision of Sophomore., had built
a large pile of wood on the University campus. After dark, because of
the lack of vigilance on the part of
these Freshmen, their labour, were
undone by their persecutors who
mischievously set fire to the pile.
Nevertheless, during Saturday, with
the aid of the Sophomores, in accordance with an agreement, the
first year students constructed an
enormous pile, which towered to a
height of at least forty-five feet, and
was surmounted by an effigy.
As soon as the Rugby football
match was over most of the "frosh"
went In motor omnibuses to the
campus, where the second pile stood
hitherto unmolested' The Freshmen
clambering upon it, drenched it with
bucketfulls of kerosene and some
kind of oil. This done, they ignited
the pile and in a few minutes the
pile was burning fiercely, and,
though Ronald Grantham and I
stood about forty yards distant, we
could feel the heat that emanated
from the huge bonfire.
The "frosh" romped around the
great fire and did all sorts of mischief, raiding parked cars and stopping others in motion.
Soon after eleven Grantham and I
got in an automobile belonging to a
young man who drove us back to
my residence. A group of "frosh"
attempted to hold the car back but
their  endeavours  were  baffled.
When we reached the house, I
pushed the electric button; the bell
in the kitchen sounded; yet, despite
Rohald's poundings on the front
door, no response came. All the doors
which allow entry, were locked.
However, finally Grantham crawled
into the house through an open window and unlocked the front door.
I was obliged to spend almost two
hours  in  ablutions   in  order  to  annihilate   the   substances,  with  which

We have been looking forward eagerly to again taking up our work In

had ordered the cartage men to call

tried to figure out what change, there
might be in the menu for the coming term, when we read with aston-
ishment the Press Dispatch appearing
in the local paper, that th. General

the closing of the college and that the
Principal had made s valiant protest

In their "Recommendation." the
Commissioners called attention to the
necessity 'of co-ordinating the college, but did not give any detail.,
and Principal Vance raised objection
to the wording of the Recommendation
on the ground that it reflected unfavorably upon the whole situation
and lacked the specific Ideas in the
report. This seems to have been interpreted as a protest against the closing of the college, a subject which
was not discussed at all.
The last act of the Synod wa. to

With his Blue and Gold grid squad greatly strengthened as
the result of a week of hard practice, and the return of several
stars, Dr. Gordon Burke, head Canadian rugby coach at the
University of B. C, will send his collegians against Norm Bur-
ley's proteges at Athletic Park to-morrow night. While the
students have not yet been rated in the pre-season predictions
of the experts, the Varsity mentor is very well satisfied that his

Once more the annual conflict between council and the subsidiary clubs of the University
is getting under way, and, no doubt, the horizon will soon glow with epithets as the "cheese
parers" of the A. M. S. start the yearly slash on
the budgets. One of the groups of sufferers in
this slaughter is athletics.
Each fall or spring the athletic clubs of the
University turn into the Students' Council a
supposedly fair budget, for the coming season,
covering both expenses, and estimated returns.
This comes before the governing body and in
practically every case is cut to some extent.
Whereupon open war, including talk of non-
confidence becomes prevalent on the campus.
With the idea of obtaining some information
on the subject we, which is us, invaded the sacred chambers that belong to the graduate manager to ask divers questions and listen to divers
answers. The net result follows
It is the desire of the Students' Council of
this University to put every team on the field
in uniforms comparable to those of the squads
they oppose, insofar as this is possible with
the funds at hand. There is no preference given
to those clubs that show a profit during the
previous year, it being the attitude of the stu
dent officials that the surplus of a single season is more than offset by the council grants
of the sessions that are a financial failure.
With direct regard to shoes, the graduate
manager has pointed out that the budgets of
, three of the major sports are practically equal,
that footwear is personal property which cannot be handed out to a new player each season,
and that if the Alma Mater Society supplies
the remainder of the equipment, the players
should not object to buying this one item.
All of which is plenty for that. However,
there is another aspect which should not be
overlooked. It has become a habit of athletic
clubs on the campus to submit an inflated budget, hoping that when the council starts cutting
the surpus will be removed and the amount
desired will be left. Which leads to discontent
among the clubs and adds to the difficulties
that face the governing body. If one of the subsidiary organizations of tiie Men's Athletic
Executive would ask for what they need, leaving out the unnecessary items and the long Hat
of miscellaneous requirements, the Students'
Council would very probably kneel In humble

good sportsmanship the respect goodwill and co-qperation of the populace.
Ted Clarke, president of the English
Rugby Club briefly reported on its
present activities, stating that this
year there would be two teams entered in both the First and Second
Divisions and asked that all aspirants
turn out prepared to display their
best since the teams are to be chosen
in the next two days. Through its
president, Ralph Thomas, the Track
and Field Club outlined an ambitious
program stating that.on October 14
the Freshmen would be given an opportunity to display their prowess
against their higher and mightier
classmen in a general meet. This event
will be followed by the annnual
inter-faculty road race on October 21
with. a further meet scheduled for
October 28. All track enthusiasts were
urged to turn out and are invited to
take advantage of the new track
which Is said to be one of the finest
in Canada.
The well-known achievements of the
Canadian Rugby teams were shortly
reviewed by John McLean, president
of the Club, who reminded the meeting of the fact that the teams of 1929
were able to cop both the Lipton and
the Hardy cups. Negotiations are now
pending between Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and should they be
completed, it will indeed be a gala
year for Canadian Rugby enthusiasts.
To complete the program there will
be an inter-collegiate team composed
entirely of freshmen, which team will
play against the Magee High School
and Vancouver College.
A hopeful program was outlined
by Bob Osborne, vice-president of the
Basketball Club, who promised that
there would be teams entered this
year in the Senior A, Senior B, Intermediate A and Intermediate B divisions. With the old talent added to
that displayed by newcomers there
is every hope and possibility of these
teams leading their respective divisions. Brightest prospects are held out
for the coming soccer Mason and we
are assured that our swimming club
will be heard from.
At the next meeting of the Men's
Athletic Club the minor and sub-
minor sports will be delved into and
a full account of their many varied
activities will be given.'
