Regulations Dealt
With at Meeting
on Thursday
President Kllnok's oagerly awaited
explanation of the rules and regulations against which the students
have been protesting, has been made
—and the result Is aomewhat disappointing. In the first place the President devoted a great part of his
talk to the hardships, if they may be
•o called, which the students have
suffered from the uncompleted condition ot the University buildings and
equipment. There has been no emphatic discontent over such things—
those that have lived through one,
two, or three years of Fairview could
not possibly have any protest against
physical discomfort. The President,
attributed all the present restlessness
in the student body to the fact that
expectation had been greater than
realisation. He pointed out that it
was impossible for things and people
to run smoothly in such trying times,
and that the students were looking
for a scapegoat upon which to vent
their ruffled feelings. Dr. Kllnck
also explained that existing conditions were unavoidable. This statement seemed to be based on the
physical conditions ot the University,
although the point of protest from
the students, the Ubyssey thinks, are
against seemingly illogical rulings by
someone, or some power that has not,
as yet, been revealed. Apparently
no one at present In office at the University is responsible. Further, additions to the equipment of the buildings were outlined, and the difficulties of Freshmen and Seniors dealt
with. The President also advised
that rules of Council be obeyed, as
they were all for the good of the
student body. Coming to the matters that were agitating the minds
of the majority of his audience, Dr.
Klinck took up the matter of the
grill. The question of what name
was to be applied was thoroughly discussed. The President also mentioned that some suggestion had been
made by T. Taylor and L. Irwin which
might remedy a trouble in the grill
If parts were adopted. In this matter,
the President recommended that all
suggestions about Improvement In
rulos he made through Students'
Council, Having settled the grill
problem, the President proceeded to
the library, In the question of
steaks, he said that the librarian, ami
the faculty, had no power to open
them- that it was up to the library
committee. Tho members of t.lii.-,
committee are unknown to the Ubyssey, but students desiring this
knowledge may, perhaps, get it from
the librarian. Apparently the reason
for keeping stacks closed Is the fact
that special chairs, not now procurable, are necessary before the corrals can be used. In the question of
the greatly magnified trouble over
the door of the library the President,
stated clearly that there were now
no rules preventing students from using the door—although It Is preferable for them to enter by way of the
basement. This, the President
thought, would be best for the students and also ensure quiet. At tho
end of the address, Mr. T. Taylor,
acting in tho place of T. Wilkinson,
at present away, thanked the President for his clear explanation of all
difficulties ,and assured him that tho
student body were now quite satis-
fled.
SOULFUL SENIORS
SWAY SOLEMNLY
Arts '26 hold another of their perfect Class Parties Wednesday night,
Willow Mall being the scene of the
festivities. A large number of enthusiastic seniors were on hand at
nine, and they tripped the light fantastic until the witching hour of one
to the strains of Peter's orchestra, Dr.
Sedgewick graciously stood In u doorway most of the evening, and misconducted himself outrageously, until
taken In hand by the other chaperons,
Mr. and Mrs. Logan. Mrs. Sedgewick
was also present, much to the pleasure of all. After a delightful supper,
mortar boards were distributed, and
the prospective graduates had a
chance to admire themselvos In their
spring headgear. The Party was
voted a great success.
FIRST IMPORTANT GAME
OF SEASON ON SAf bRDAY
Edmonton Sands Unusually Strong Team To Avenge Former
Defeats.   Varsity Men In Pink Of Condition
The first important game of the English Rugby season takes place tomorrow afternoon at 2.30, Brockton Point being the Held of battle. Two
years ago Edmonton sent a team to Vancouver to play the University and
Vancouver Rep. squads. The Varsity game was a very good practice, the
blue and gold men going over their opponent's line almost at will. Two
scoring machines were worn out before the session was over, and the Edmonton players swore a deep and lasting revenge, Last year they sent no team
to play on the coast. They were
preparing. But this year feeling that they have got together an
unbeatable team, they are fully determined to wipe out the blot on
their past history. Almost all members of this squad are between the
ages of twenty and twenty-five, and
are, therefore, at the top ot their
game, Critics, who have seen them
in action, aver that they are 100 per
cent, better than when they visitbd
Vancouver two years ago. As a result a very close struggle is expected.
The wearers of the blue and gold
realize that they have no easy task
before them, and under the able direction of Coach Jim Scott they are
working hard to be in the pink of
condition when the whistle toots on
Saturday. Workouts have been held
Wednesday and Thursday, with chalk
talks during noon hours. Competition for places has been more than
usually keen this year, especially in
the back field. No man Is sure of
his position, and as a result all are
working like Trojans to catch the
eye of Capt. J. McLean and Coach
Jim Scott. As usual, casualties have
already appeared, and at least one
excellent player Is on the sick list,
This is Gordon Logan, to whom the
place of fullback had been conceded.
A deadly tackier, and speedy runner,
Ciord was just the man for this position. However, his plucky collaring
last Saturday, resulted in three broken ribs, and his doctor refuses to allow him to play. His place will probably be taken by "Squid" Mclnnls.
Also a strong defense man, and with
an excellent kick, "Squid" Is expected
to prove quite capable ot handling
any member of tho Alberta team that
breaks  through.
Birt brock has been suffering from
a bad knee for the last three weeks,
but when he Is asked if he will be
unable to play, he smiles his famous
smile and looks unutterably wise •■
from which we coin hide he will be
mi hand, come what may. Pete Price
and White are going gror.t guns in
the iiookiug positions, anil if they
keep up their good work there is no
doubt that the threes will have lots
of work. Kldd, at lock has been
using his 200 pounds odd very effectively this year. He is an adopt at
holding the scrum together, and In
spite of his weight follows up speedily.
Davidson and Bain are a strong
second line. Both heavy and fast,
they make Ideal scrum men, and will
certainly show well In the first Important game In senior rugby. Kelly
at live-eighths, Don McKay at half,
and Johnny McLean at wing forward,
seem to be sure of their places. Practically all the other positions have
two or more possibilities. Sparks,
Barton, and Doidge are competitors
for back line scrum—Casselman,
Willis, Warren, Mills, Eaton, Tupper,
and Abernethy aro all possibles for
the threes.
The tickets for the game are being
sold by members of Arts '27, and by
the roaring business they are doing,
there will be a great crowd of rooters out to cheer on the boys. Feathers,
died In University colors, are to ho
sold hy members of the Theta Kpsilon
sorority In aid of the Women's Union
HiilldliiK. These will take the place
of the usual juzz caps, although members of the student body who own
this distinctive headgear, are requested to bring them along.
A large section of the grandstand
has been reserved for the root em, and
everything points to a wildly enthusiastic gathering, Remember --Brock-

MOTION OF THANKS
SENT GOVERNMENT
At the last meeting of the Students' Council held Monday evening
considerable business was discussed
and several Interesting resolutions
adopted.
The Honorary President, Dr. Kllnck
addressed the council on problems of
vital interest to members of the
Student body and requested that a
general meettug bo called on Thursday noon for the purpose of outlining
to the students the official rules and
regulations now iu force about the
University.
Leaders of student administration
have long been considering the proposal that the Alma Mater Society
give official endorsatlon to the work
of the League of Nations Society in
Canada. On a motion made by Mr.
A. E. Birney and seconded by Mr. T.
Taylor, council decided that the A.
M. S. be affiliated-vkir til* L**jue of
Nations Society and that Prof. Soward be asked to continue his representation.
As a token of appreciation to the
government for its work in establishing the University at the Point Grey
site, the Secretury of Council was instructed to send a copy of the following resolution, which was moved
by Mr. Birney and seconded by Mr.
Oliver: On behalf of the students
of the University of British Columbia, the Students' Council wish to express their appreciation to the Government of the Province of British
Columbia for the work which they
have so far completed towards the
establishment of a permanent university at Point Grey."
The problem of ;l standard U. 11. ('.
color scheme for use on crests, etc.,
was giver, consideration. Discussion
oil bhi/cr.s ended m a committee
being appointed to fix the design and
colors suitable for distinctive Varsity
use. It is expected that the olllcla'l
U. I!. ('. blue and gold shades when
finally approved will be registered
for Varsity use only.
A request from the Students'
Christian Movement asking for tho
occasional use of Room 303, which Is
sot aside for the work of Lit. and
Scientific Department was refused,
the room being already fully in use.
Friday noon, the Women's Grass
Hockey Club will conduct a candy-
sale for benefit ot Women's Union
building.
The Alpha Gamma Phi fraternity
was given permission to use the University name and crest.

Under   tho   difficult   ofrcuirAtances
VICTORIANS and
U.B.OEBATE
Subject of discussion will be the
Jasz Age.   Admission free
Modern youth, alwuys In search of
new sensations, can secure a surfeit
of jars and shucks by attending tho
U. B. C. Victoria detato tonight. The
very subject should give him pause:
"Resolved that the morals of the present so-called Jazz Age are better than
those of the Victorian Age.
Jazz-hounds should bring their mid-
Victorian grandmamas and grand-
pops. They are all on trial. Pause
lor a moment and think of the far-
reaching import of this debate. Can
flaming youth be quenched? Does It
need to be?? Were the Victorians Inspired??? Biazentiess versus shrinking violets. Oxford bags and eyeache
sweaters arrayed against stovepipe
hats and fire-escape whiskers. Shingles or crinolines? Eleanor Glyn or
"East Lynn"? Think of it! One
delirious evening full of verbal bombshells and shrapnel.
The U. B. C. home team will defend
the Jazz Age against the sweeping Indictments leveled against It. Messrs.
D, Murphy and McLean have worked
like galley slaves, even like fourth
year honor students, digging up musty
tomes and translating their contents
Into the modern Jazzese of this year
of grace (or disgrace) 1925, They
have searched family albums, Family
Journals and Family Heralds for
startling revelations. Nineteenth Century shams have had their respectable
■ Bldowhiskers and goatees shaved off,
and will bo exposed as oareWcdd
frauds to the merciless glare 61 a
twentieth century audience,
The visiting team or Victoria College have brought over tons of weighty ammunition in their baggage. Already they have been disillusioned
about hectic modern life, and long for
the good old days. Their keen verbal
capiers and slashing sabres will cut
the Jazz Age In countless tender
places. If he survives tho evening.
Mr. Jazz will crawl away a hacked audi
crippled wreck.
The ghosts of Dickens, Ruskln,
Thackeray, Jane Austen and countless
others will hover over the Auditorium
this evening. They will be there to
await Hie verdict that will decide how
they and their contemporaries will
I tire In the minds of Posterity. Will
they depart for the land of shades in
triumphant dignity or go back dancing the Charleston? They will know
to-night.
Not only will Point Grey be a wordy
Lattlelield. Messrs. Weeks and W,
Taylor have set sail for Victoria
where they too will discuss polkas and
fox-trots, shieks and dandles, bobs and
bonnets.
Men, women and children of the
University can hear this oratorical
orgy free. Friends, relations and
other visitors can come for the same
price. Visitors can also Inspect our
marble halls. Freshmen can bring
their little brothers and sisters as
visitors and let them have the time
of their lives running through the revolving doors of the Library, while
they themselves attend the debate.
This debate Is the most important
Freshman-Sophomore event of the
year. If successful, It will become a
traditional affair and we may live to
see our grandchildren debating whether their age has better morals etc.
than Ihe Age of George V. In the
words of one of the greatest Late
Victorian   poets:
"Come nil folks, come young folks,
come everybody conto,"

Rugby Stars to Meet
Stiff Opposition
at Bellingham
Follow the grid stars to Bellingham,
Why? Because they play Washington State Normal at the Tulip City on
Saturday, November 14, at 3 o'clock.
Arrangements have been made to accommodate a largo number of rooters
from this University at the Normal
stadium for the big game. Plans are
under way to have a caravan leave the
University site at 11 or 12 o'clock so
that time will be allowed for any
delays on the way.
Would all drivers of private cars
who Intend going, please make up
their own parties and hand in their
names and number of passengers to
Eric Huestis or Bill Thomson so that
accommodation can be arranged
In advance. Eric Huestis, president of
the Rooters Chorus, is anglincf to
secure the use of one of the big sightseeing busses to accommodate students who cannot get transportation in
private cars. The price of the trip by
bus has not yet been definitely arranged, but will be advertised later.
Most of the curs will be returning the
same evening.
It is very likely that entertainment
will be provided by the Normal students, but apart from the fun, the team
needs your support. Coach Carver of
the Bellingham squad can be counted
on to produce the stlffest opposition
the Blue and Gold crew has faced this
year; so lets go Varsity, and show the
team that you're behind them,
Ljsts^will bo posted OA,.the notice-
boards to sign, if you can't get in
touch with the above mentioned men,
Watch for further particulars In connection with this trip. Don't forget,
this trip comes off rain or shine.
wlilchihese men were obliged to prepare (Memselvea, U. B. C. may well be
proud Jof the record and fame they
have established.
TAKE CHANGE TO
GAMESATURDAY
Contributions for the Womeu's
Union Building are steadily growing,
the latest being a gift of one thousand
dollars from Lieut-Governor Nichol.
The sum now In the hands of the hard
working committee has assumed very
respectable proportions, and plan" are
being laid for an early start upon the
much needed structure. All the societies are helping with the good work,
raffles, rummage sales, and bridges
being the means by which the coveted
dollars are lured from the unwary.
The latest device is a tag-day, to be
staged at the Varsity-Edmonton Rugby
game at Brockton Point on Saturday.
Feathers, dyed in University colors,
are to be used Instead of tags. This
Is a very excellent arrangement, as all
students can kill three birds with one
twenty-flvo cent piece—obtain the
identification necessary for the rooter's
section, help on a very worthy cause,
and last, but by no means least, win
the favor of a remarkably pretty young
lady. At least, the writer has been
Informed that all taggers will qualify
for this description.
New Way To Exercise
Still another form of "perspiring during your spare hour" has been discovered. The originators of this
method of gaining health of mind and
body guarantee It to be 1(10'/, efllclent.
It consists of the simple process of
racing your fellows down aud up tho
stairs of the cliff down at tho overhead
railway. If contestants are lacking,
one can race against time. The record
so far Is 2 minutes, 17 seconds for the
ascent, nnd I minute, 13 seconds for
the descent, These marks were made
on different occasions and by different
men. A decent time has not been
made by anyone lor the combined
descent and ascent a« yet. All lazy
students are strongly urged to acquire
the habit of doing the climb, at least
once a day. When this grows monotonous there are the sand cliffs on
the north coast which afford every
opportunity for working up a "gentle
perspiration." And when one Rets
tired of these two fields of athletics
there are always the stairs of the library on which to work out, T II E

EXAM. TIME LIMIT
With the dreaded exnras. n short five weeks away, the thoughts
of tho student body turn more and more in that direction. Tho
exam, system used in tho University is u very old one, nnd although
many substitutes have been suggested, none have been put into actual
use. It would be foolish to abolish our present system at once, and
replace it with one of which students are wholly ignorant. But many
improvements can be made, improvements which will make the
exams, fairer to all students. At present, tho quick thinker and
speedy writer has a great advantage over a slower, but just as clever
a student. This fault can be remedied, in a great measure, by doing
away with the time system at present in vogue in British Columbia.
A student cannot possibly do justice to himself or herself when tied
down to a two or three-hour period. The more unsteady are quite
liable to got flustered, and not recover their poise until their time has
advanced to such an extent as to make a good paper impossible. England has done away with these obnoxious time rules. We would do
well to follow her example.
EFFICIENCY IN OUR MIDST
Many of the old problems we struggled with in Fairview are
still with us, and have reared their heads thus early to remind us
that the perfect state we so invariably connected with I'oitit (Irey
is as far away as ever. The question ol" reference books, instead of
being shelved along with that of scuts in the library, hits taken on
a different aspect. A brand new system has been evolved (no) very
new either, as people who have visited certain very ef'licient American universities will have discerned) by which, with <jum\ luck, a
reference book may be |(ckmir*'(I after elbowine; yntir way to consult
a card entalou'iie, lillinu in a neat little slip of paper, and wailimi
till the assistant bits searched I'm' the bonk and finally cheeked it
oil' on the above mentioned slip which is promptly pi^eoti-hnled.
The good hick consists in disenverinu' that ihe bonk litis not previously been loaned for the I wo hours prescribed.
The system, although very orderly, is scarcely workable, as even
the casual visitor who has it explained to him, can point out. We
mny in a measure, have brought it upon ourselves by the old Fair-
view habit of purloining reference books for indefinite periods, and
trading them among a select group.
We admit that this was due to the laxity of the rules, that some
regulations ought to govern the loaning of reference books, but
could not these be reasonable, and above all, time-saving'.' If students could themselves choose their reference books from the shelves,
and have them cheeked off for a definite period of time before leaving the reference room, time would be saved, and each person would
probably get what he wanted, and not what lie thought he wanted.
It is useless, perhaps, to criticize and lo lind fault, but, nevertheless, it is always a relief. Afier that we can sit back, and wait
philosophically until such time as the numerous restrictions made
in the first /enI for reform, inspired by a fresh start, will have been
modified and shaped by practical testing out.

ARMISTICE DAY TRADITION
Tho Editor,
The Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:—
I would like to suggest that this
year some provision might be made
for the observance of the Two Minute
Silence on Armistice Day by the Student Body as a whole. Last year there
was no attempt nt such observance in
this University, nnd those who wished
to show their roHpoet and reverence
lor the Dead were quite unable to do
o,  owing  to  the   rush  or changing
hisses, etc. I am fully awaro that
this was not the fault of the Student
oly. Surely It is only filling that
Ihe Institution which Is supposed to
•ead nnd direct the future thought of
HiIm province should respect a tradition which him been established
throughout nn Empire which Is m no
way blatant or showy, and which for
its sheer simplicity and solemn beauty
Is surely without parallel In the History of the world.    Might I suggest
hat those who direct our ways take
some action In this matter?
Yours truly,
GEORGE 0. VINCENT.
MORE PROTESTS
Editor "The Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
Regarding the new regultalon re
the Varsity Grill, namely that each
student shall enter at the north west
doors, pass the sales counter and retire to his or her respective table.
In view of the fact that no chairs
have been provided elsewhere for
luncheon purposes, and that an official order Is now on the notice board
requesting all to eat In the grill. It
Is absolutely unfair that those who
provide their own lunch and desire
to rest while eating must wait In line
while others purchase a meal.
We aro not going to enumerate the
various phases of tho situation; we
are ell acquainted wtth the facts, but
we hereby protest the above regulation under the circumstances, and as
It stands at the present time.
Sincerely,

By the stillness, the darkness, the
loneliness, he felt for a moment as
he stood there in the centre ot the
dimly lighted room, that he might
be only dreaming that of all the party
he was the only one left alive. Rut
that Impression did not last Ions,
It never did.
It was the awful stillness that

ono tremendous roaring In his ears,
a roaring that penotrated to his very
bruin and made him feel like screum-
Ing. But It didn't do to scream; he
hud succumbed to that temptation
once, und the sound of his own voice
had terrified him so, that ho had
crouched trembling In the cornor until the room grew so cold that he was
forced to rouso himself and heap
fresh wood on the fire,
And now his eyes rested upon a
radio outfit lying there on the table.
It was a vacuum tube set, but, as he
remembered only too well, one ot.
the tubes had been broken Just before the last man died. And so It
had been useless during the long dark
months he had lived there alone. But
now, see, he held It In his hand, another tube. He had thought there
was no such thing (amongst the stores,
was sure of it, and JuBt now he had
found It while rummaging through
some old boxes. God, how he had
wanted It before.
He tiptoed across the room to the
table. He always tiptoed when he
moved nbout; somehow his nerves
would never allow him to break In
upon that awful stillness.
His Angers, trembling a little,
screwed the new tube Into Its socket
and fixed the receivers over his ears.
In another moment he had "tuned
In" somewhere or other, he didn't
know where, hut he could hear a human voice saying: "For Thine is the
Kingdom, the Power and the Glory,
—" and In tho background, as it were,
he could hear the familiar hum of
a large congregation repeating the
same words In unison. A church service, he thought. It must bo Sunday;
he hadn't known that It was Sunday.
And then came tho words, 'Forever
and ever.   Amen."
Silence. Then the minister, who
had been leading in prayer, coughed,
just a trifling little cough, but oh so
plain, so real, to the man "listening
in" away up there alone. Somehow
or other it sounded of the roominess
of the great church; it brought up
hefore him a vision of all the people
congregated there together. They
wore actually there, sitting next to
each oilier, and at this very moment;
whllo he,—ho was a thousand miles
away across the snow fields, seated In
this dimly lighted room,—alone,—
listening to them. That thing on the
table in front of him gave him ears
to hear what he might never see
again. Cod, he couldn't stand It. It
was like placing n lino instrument
in the newly crippled hands of a
master musician. He pushed the re-
• elvers front his ears and stood up.
Saiely   the  silence   was  better.
His lingers rested on the new vacuum tube, lightly at first, but slowly
tightening—. That report must have
sounded down to tho very borders
of civilization,  he thought.

Tales of Flintlock Bones
By P. 1. P.
I. Tht Stoltn Lttttr-Man
Chapter I.—The Interview
Flintlock Bones, the grent detoc-
tlve, throw tho volume- of Hlnsteln
on tho floor. "I am tired of thU light
fiction," he said, "What I really
would like, my deur Watson, le a
good case."
"You are right," I replied, "especially a case of Scotch."
As If in answer to his words, our
landlady brought in a card, and handed it to Flintlock Bones. "Professor
Qewlskl," read the Blouth. "Show
him In.
A tall man with long hair and a
mustache like an undergraduate president's strode In, and began pacing
up and down the room. "Jumping
tyrannosauri!" he muttered, "How I
am excited I"
"You belonfi to the U. B. C„" said
the detective.
"Yes, I am a professor of Erotics
there," our visitor managed to gasp
between his ejaculations.
Flintlock Bones handed him a copy
of Sedgwlckian versos. Soon our visitor was tearing his hair and dancing
about trying to discover the poetic
beauty of an ode entitled "Believe
me, Brother."
"You are now calmed," said the detective; "Tell me your trouble."
The Professor gazed blankly round
the room, and remembered what had
brought him. "My son, Sammy Qewlskl Is lost!" he walled. "Find hm, 0,
find him!"
Flintlock Bones started to his feet.
"Yon don't ineau Sammy Qewlskl, the
freshman chess prodigy?" he shouted.
"Yes," walled the Professor—"I
will give you anything If you will find
him."
"This sounds interesting," murmured the detective, "State your case."
"My son Sammy has just received
his big block letter for chess," the
Professor began in a strained voice.
"He was to have represented the
U. B. C. in the World's Championship
tournament at Kamchatka. The boat
leaves tomorrow, I left hm in his
nursery last night, and In the morning he had disappeared."
Flintlock Hones handed hlin a
handkerchief to dry his eyes.
"I have made up my mind," the
great detective said at last, "I will
take up the case for the honor of my
Alma Mater."
"How did you know that the Professor belonged to the U. 11, C?" I
asked Flintlock Hones when our visitor had gon.-j.
"My observation and deduction,"
the world's greatest investigator replied. "His legs were si I IT from
I'hetimati.iin canned by always having to stand tip lu the busses."

Hints For Lit. Bugs  4
University Authors
The literary editor of our bright
little paper was In a vllo humour the
other day; he told me that many of
the student body had seen our mountains evidently for the first time, and
had In consequence, felt Impelled to
pour fourth their souls In verse—all
of It damnably bad—which he had
bean obliged to read. Hence his disgust (for he has a profound appreciation of good poetry) and hence also,
an expression of sympathy on my
part, coupled with an assurance that
I would endeavour to raise the level
of literary expression about the University.
Of course, Science men are awfully crude. They think Berton
Braley spells poetry and Robert W.
Service is synonymous. Their minds
are starved of beautiful recollection
and lu no circumstances, can they
leaf over the tablets of memory to
find solace In a viewless page of
poesy. A Science man crawls out
of bed in the morning and seeing a
cloudy sky, bawls out, "Mama, Mama, where's my umbrella and rubbers?" You see how material Science
men are; an Arts man, If cultured,
can turn to Keuts for comfort in a
boautlful couplet.
"The   morn   was   clouded,   but  no
showers fell,
Though In her lips hung the sweet
tears of May."
Science men, of course, never write
poetry; I have known a few who
rhymed. But an Arts man, in the
face of an overcast dawn, la very apt
to break Into verse unless he remembers Keats; and then he has not the
presumption to flutter hla own moth-
wings for "a swallow-flight of song."
The cardinal principle to be observed In writing poetry Is restraint,
and therefore, my best ndvlce to
those about to write Is "Don't." Few
of our local Swlnburnos realize that
a poet Is often more honoured in his
silence. I am, for one, und so Is
Robert Bridges, who hasn't written
as much as Edgar Quest, but Is still
Poet Laureate of England. After
1903, Kipling maintained a Sphinx-
like aspect and enjoyed his reputation; when he started again to write,
lo and behold! his glory was departed. Consider how Sholly's faire has
Increased since he quit writing; he
was not so popular in Ihe flood-tide
of his expression. And there are
those in our University who write
quatrains to their ladles fair, who
might conceivably succeed in silence
where Shelley failed in eloquence--
that is, in gaining the good opinion
of their conietnporarles.

Dear Editor:
Please excuse mo If my writing Is
absolutely Incoherent and peculiar
this morning, but the fact Is that I
went to the Jolly old Arts '26 Class
Party,   and   the   effects   thereof   are
"oi11 TV ,.me' Pretty K°od b'"»ch,
26, and I didn't have at all a bad time,
Th only thins I want to complain
about are all thlse doodabs which
were folated upon us. '8 all very
fine, giving a man favors an' fans an'
mortar boards in moderation, but
why the deuce should one'a girl take
about fifty-nine of the darn things
an stuff them In one's pockets and
down one's neck, and. . . Oh, well!
Of course, you know, those bally
doorkeepers tried to turn me back,
said I hadn't got a ticket, or gome
fool stunt. However, 'a wonderful
what a few coins presed Into the
hand will do, and I had several nickels with me. *S a curious thing, the
effect of music an' life, an' laughter
on a man who Is after all but human,
and on a woman who. ... An' It's
here, dear Editor, that the whole
point of my letter Is revealed. Th'
truth Is that I'm In a most drefful
fix, an' I want your help. Above all,
keep It from the Varsity, Don't let
the freshettes hear 'bout It. Don't
let. . . . Well, the tTuth Is, I'm engaged to be married!       Th'
trouble is I don't know who the blessed girl Is! You see, It was this way.
I was dancing with a girl, a perfect
dream, a glorious  and somehow. . . . well, suddenly we were
alone,   with   th*  stars,  an'  th'  rain,
»&' Well, she said she loved me,
dammit! Was It my fault that she
proposed to me? I swear I didn't
encournge her! Was It my fault that
I accepted her?. . . , What the deuoe
else could a fellow do? I've always
been polite, an' I've always been
afraid of these big, strong cave-women. You'd have done the same!. . . .
Why, It was nearly ten rather trying
minutes later that I managed to escape and re-enter the brilliantly lighted ballroom. How afraid I was that
someone might observe my mantling
blush! Then, later, that woman followed mo all over the floor. She
cut In on three dances, an' took me
from th' arms of m' partners. She,
she asked to take me home. She,
she tried to kl. . . . Oh, how frightened I was! And then the evening
ended at last. We parted, but only
for a little while, she said, as she
pressed iny hand. An' I walked home
tliirty-dve blocks because I wanted
lo   think       Aii'   now   day   lias   come.
and   with  it  realization    isn't  it
vvoinlerf. . . . Th' only thing is thu;
I don't even know Iter name! She
certainly isn't in '2C i think she may
he a freshette. , . , I hope, but I don't
know. All 1 know is that I'm in despair. Hd, dear Editor, I wish to appeal through your hospitable columns. Will the tall, handsome, dashing, beautiful, rather hectic freshette
who proposed to me on Wednesday
night at ten llfty-nlne please seek me
out immediately. Letters may be ad
dressed cure of the Ubyssey. Meanwhile, I watch and pray. . . , that sho
doesn't  find mo!
Yours most, gratefully,
QASTON.

Player*s Club Members
Receive Assignments
A meeting of the Player's Club last
Tuesday revealed the truth of Prof.
Wood's statements at the beginning of
the year, that tho club had no room
for slackers, nnd that all must take an
active part In the production of the
plays. Members were placed on various committees so that those who
have not won the right to appear before the footlights will be kept busy
preparing costumes for the princesses,
or Initiating the Madonna into the
mysteries of make-up. Another benefit rained from the plan Is that the
non-acting members, after strenuously shifting scenery for the Xmas Plays,
will be encouraged to do their utmost
to gain a part In the Spring Play The
names of those on committees have
been posted on tho Player's Club
notice board, which is situated on the
side of the telephone booth opposite
the Lower Men's Common Room.
The Player's Club was also Informed that eight complimentary tickets
would be given each member. The
President has evidently formed a great
opinion of the plays, but authorities
on the matter assure the public thnt
she has not overestimated them.
WOMEN'S BASKETBALL
The personel of tho Women's
Senior "A" Basketball team Is nearly
complete. Those chosen so far are:
F- Musgrave (C), Winona Straight
Grace Swenclsky, Doris Shorney,
Marge Bell, Mary Carter, Jean Car-
law, and Jennie Wilkinson. There
Is only one more to bo picked for the
team. The schedulo starts next week
and as Varsity has a strong team this
year it should make a good showing in the league.

Something To Remember
On Saturday, our stalwarts take on
Alberta In the first big rugby game
of the season. With the ever increasing number or sport activities in
which the college engages, we aro at
times apt to underrate the Importance of our longer established
sports. A wider Held of operation Is,
of course, what we ought to aim for,
hut, In doing so, we must not neglect
the games which originally brought
our reputation. In short, In getting
quantity we  must  not  forget quality.

Basketball Is Made
Major Sport
At a well-attended meeting of the
Men's Athletics Monday noon, basketball was unanimously voted lo be a
major sport. Ron Cordon spoke effectively for the alllrinative. He outlined Ihe past record of the Senior A
team, pointing out what, this team had
done to put I'.B.C. on the map. He
stressed the fact that basketball was
worthy of a big block on account of
the interest taken In It. He also
pointed out that making basketball a
major sport would only Involve the
giving of three big blocks more as
most ol' the players on (he team already have their letters. Les Buckley
and Eddie Mulhern also spoke supporting the aillrmatlve.
The subject of inter-class sports was
discussed at some length, It was Anally decided that the athletic representatives of the various classes should
comprise a committee which should
look after the ways and means of promoting class Bpects. It was generally
felt that those who wore on Varsity
teams already should be excluded from
these lnterclass games so that everybody should play some game and so
that no lew outstanding stars should
monopolize any game, Dr. Davidson
stressed the crying need of some kind
of sport to occupy the spare hours of
the men, He decried the athletic
slopplnesj which Is so prevalent about
the Varsity, occasioning much laughter by comparing It to the untidiness
of the Oxford bags which the students
wear.
Training Instructions
For Swimming Teams
EXPLANATORY—
Exerclso modifies organic structure,
and under conditions favorable to nutrition this modification takes the
form of power of the organs and tissues of the body.
In acquiring athletic condition we
are Interested in special physical exercises only Insofar as they stlmulato
nutrition and enhance the self-cleansing faculties of the organic structures.
Exercise cannot satisfactorily stimulate nutrition unless the diet be
adequate and unless tho body and
brain be rested for a sutllclent number
of hours each night.
Physiologists have found that for
recuperative purposes sleep is of
greater value during the hours preceding midnight than afterward. Govern yourself accordingly. In well-ventilated room, endeavor to secure
nightly eight or nine hours of sound
sleep.
.Note that as a stimulant to nutrition and development, a few movements conseieniidir-dy executed are
worth far more than an endless repetition of exercises ineauinglessly performed.
Recreative exercises that blend
with Speed Swimming are Dancing,
Club-swinging, Volleyball, Handball,
Walking and Coif. For Free style
Swimmers single-foot skipping with
