'Stock-judging Team Chosen to
Represent U. B. C. in South
The Agriculture Undergraduate Society held its fifth annual banquet in
honor of Dean Clement and the members of the Faculty, last Wednesday
evening, October 15th at the Elysium
Tlie ''Aggie Banquet" is one of the
major events in the social activities
of the undergraduates of Agriculture.
It is a big "get-together" of the members of the faculty and their wives, and
the students, which enables the freshmen to meet and become acquainted
with the professors and the students
of the other years, so that at the earliest possible time the faculty can become a unity in both academic and
inter-class activities.
The principal speakers were Dean
Clement, Prof. Wilfrid Sadler, and
Mr. Dal Grauer, president of the
Alma Mater Society. Mr. Fergus
Mutrie contributed a piano solo, and
Messrs. Tommy Wilkinson and "Lefty" Nelson rendered a duet with Miss
Milne accompanying. The freshmen
are required to put on a "stunt" each
year at the banquet, and this year
the class contributed an original parody  on "It  ain't gonna rain  no mo."
During the course of the evening
Dean Clement announced the personnel of the teams which will represent
the U. B. C. in the stock-judging
competition at the Pacific International Live-Stock Exposition which will
be held at Portland in November.
The general animal husbandry team
will consist of: Messrs. A. W. Aylard,
G. W. Challenger, E. B. Fraser, L. A.
Murphy and J. C. Nelson, while Messrs. G. T. Wilkinson, J. B McCur-
rach, and G. M. Dynes will compose
the dairy cattle judging team. These
men will meet keen competition from
the representatives of the college of
the Pacific Coast States and the very
best wishes of the whole College will
be with them when they leave for
the South.
Rugby Score is 9 to 5
\J ■	
The Rowing Club defeated Varsity
in a hard-fought game last Saturday
by 9 points to 5. The game the
students put up was the more creditable in that they played minus the
services of Hall, the regular full-back.
Gwyther having moved from his position to fill the vacancy, there were no
available spares to take the fly-half's
place. Varsity was thus forced to
play with but one half-back.
The Rowing Club kicked off and followed their advantage by engineering
two fast three-quarter wins, carrying
the ball to the Varsity twenty-five.
At this point Price relieved the situation momentarily by breaking through

Warren, Henry, Mottley and Ramsell Make Splendid Showing.
Given Fine Reception at Edmonton
Eight records were shattered in the
Western Inter-Collegiate meet at Edmonton in what was considered by
everyone present as the best track
meet in the history of the union.
Manitoba won the aggregate of the
meet as per usual with their star aggregation of track men, but U. B. C.
with six men tied for. second place
with Alberta, who had a full team of
fifteen, and Saskatchewan came fourth
having a team of twelve. The B. C.
boys were not allowed points however, as they were not affiliated with
the W. I. C. A. A. U. Hence to figure
out the aggregate, points must be deducted from each college and added
to U. B. C.'s credit.
Without handing themselves any
bouquets the Varsity track team, and
the students themselves, may well be
proud of last Saturday's performance
of the smallest (in numbers) of any
track team at the Prairie meet.
Harry Warren, C. Henry, C. Mottley
and Ramsell were the stars of the
U. B. C. outfit, and had points been
awarded in their events, would have
garnered 29 for the coast province.
Warren came second in the century,
220 yards and 440 yards, records being broken in all three events. The
U. B. C. star was only about two feet
behind Cohen of Winnipeg in the
hundred, which was run in 10 1-5 sees.
The 220 yard event was probably the
best in comparative times of any races
at Edmonton. The Winnipeg speed
merchant, Cohen, broke the tape at
22 seconds flat after being forced to
the tape all the way by Warren of
B. C. Some idea of the excellent
time made in this event may be realized when it is considered that the
world's record for the event is only
four-fifths of a second better. Warren
capped his performance by coming
within an ace of beating Butch McLeod of Winnipeg in the'quarter mile,
which was won in the record time of
52 1-5 seconds.
Clarence Henry of Art's '28 turned
in the second best performance for his
college when he  copped two seconds
in both the high and low hurdles and

Crute Is Life Member of
^   Soccer Team
Veteran Player Is Honored by
Men's Athletic Association
At a meeting of the Men's Athletic
Association on Thursday, Ebenezer
Crute, star right full-back of the Varsity first soccer team, was singularly
honored by being made a life member
of the soccer team. Crute has been
with the Varsity team from its very
beginning. He played when the college team engaged only in friendly
matches. During their uphill fight of
four years ago in the second division
he played no small part. Eb has always acted as a steadying influence
to the team of young players but when
it comes to playing he is about the
class of the province at right-back and
wherever the Varsity team appears
there are sure to be some rabid supporters of "Good Old Eb." Last
year it was decided to permit Crute
to play, he under ordinary circumstances being ineligible, as he was
not attending Varsity. By Thursday's
meeting Crute is eligible to play with
the U. B. C. team as long as there is
any football left in his legs, which is
going to be for a long time yet. It
was but a fitting tribute to one who
has done so much for soccer at the
U. B. C.
Shields Gives Champion
a Hard Run
Lorimer Baker was again successful in defending his singles title
against the challenger, Gordon Shields.
As was expected, Shields put up a
hard fight but his apponent, consistently holding a slight edge, was able
to defeat him in three straight sets
8-6, 6-3, 7-5.
In the men's doubles Hincks and
Shields defeated Arnott and Baker
6-4, 7-5, 4-6, 7-5. In the ladies singles
Miss Bullock-Webster defeated Miss
Jean Strauss 6-4, 6-4. The ladies' event
provided an interesting and consistently well-fought brand of tennis. But
it is evident that the finals in the
men's doubles was even better, since
the latter had a monopoly on the
spectators. Baker and Arnott played
an excellent brand of tennis and at
times during the second and third sets
it seemed as if they might win the
title. But the superior combination of
Hinck's and Shields told and they went
down to defeat.
Another excellent event was the
rratch between Shields and Hincks in
the finals of the men's singles. During the first two sets Shields was
markedly the better, winning 6-1, 6-1.
But in the third Hincks struck his
pace and, fighting every inch of the
way, took the set 6-8. However,
Shields came back in the next, and
winning 6-3 took the match.
This win gave Shields the right to
again challenge Baker whom he had
failed to defeat last year by only a
hair's breadth. Baker has held the
title for the past three years, and a
large gallery was present to witness
his success. This match, by far the
best of the tournament was filled from
beginning to end with consistently
brilliant tennis. In the first set Baker
had run up a lead of 5-3 and was twice
within a point of winning when Shields
called and forced the score to 8-6. In
the second and third, though the game
was very even Baker held the edpe,
winning 6-3, 7-5.
The S:' C. M. of this University has
arranged to have Mr. H. N. Harkness
address them on Monday next, on the
subject, "The Challenge of the Child."
Mr. Harkness, the secretary of the
local Kiwanis Club, is a well-known
worker in social and child welfare
work. It is his aim to give every
child a full opportunity to develop
into a good citizen. This should be
interesting to many students and a
good turn out is expected. Although
this meeting is under the auspices of
the S. C. M., all students are invited.

In Women's Athletics as well as
the Men's, letters are given for proficiency. For the benefit of the Freshettes and others who do not understand the system by which these letters are awarded, the following explanation  is  given:
In basketball and swimming, small
block letters are awarded to those taking part in 50 per cent, of the scheduled games or meets. Those taking
part in 50 per cent, of grass hockey
and Badminton games are given plain
letters, while the three girls making
the most progress in gymnasium are
also given plain letters. In the track
meet, to the girl making the highest
number of points, a plain letter is
awarded; and also 1st, 2nd and 3rd
ribbons are awarded in the different
events. First ribbons go to the members of the first relay team.
Every year, keen interest is taken
in the Interclass competitions, both
by players and supporters. There is
always that feeling of excitement in
seeing which class will come out on
top, and also that struggle to win or
hold   certain  cups.
This year the Competition opens
with the Track events and is followed by basketball, swimming, badminton and the relay, which is also counted. The class winning the relay gets
the Arts '25 Relay Cup, while the class
making the greatest number of points
throughout the year wins the Chris
Spencer   Cup.
The order of points given in each
event are: 4, 3, 2, 1.

scheduled for Saturday evening was
called off, as hikes, practices, and
various other engagements prevented

aaxl carrying the ball to mid-field before being stopped. The Club retaliated with a rush that took the ball
to Varsity's five-yard line; improving
this movement by scoring shortly after, Lane being the principal Crone
failed to convert. The Club immediately pressed to the attack again,
and two pretty three-quarter runs
were followed by a score, Marshall
going over. Crone again failed to
convert. Varsity now took the initiative and began a heavy attack; aided
by slow work at the base of the Club
scrum, the Varsity threes obtained
possession of the ball, and on this occasion got the ball away fast, Arkley
being in possession before the Club
three had quite tumbled to the situation. He evaded his check by a
nice turn of speed, and swerved neatly past the full-back, just making the
line as he fell. Gwyther converted.
Purdy followed up fast after the kick-
off and downed Stuart, the Club fullback in his tracks. From the ensuing scrum Casselman obtained the ball
and engineered a three-quarter run
which was again featured by unusually fast passing on the part of the
Varsity. The half ended with the
full-backs exchanging kicks, Gwyther
having the slight advantage. Rowing  Club  6;   'Varsity   5.
Before the second half had proceeded a minute, Purdy kicked long and
high, followed fast, and again nailed
Stuart. This advantage was shortlived, for a rush by the Club forwards
took the ball to Varsity's twenty-yard
line. Gwyther relieving the situation
for a moment by a nice kick, the
ball was brought right back, and the
next ten minutes were taken up with
scrums on Varsity's five-yard line,
Boyd being pushed over eventually by
the scrum. Crone had hard luck in
not converting, his effort hitting the
bar. Varsity followed the advantage
of the kick by pressing the Club back
to their twenty-five, and subsequent
kicking by Morgan and Casselman
gained another fifteen yards. Here
Varsity started a zig-zag rush which
almost put them over, but determined resistance by the Club took the
play back to Varsity territory and the
final whistle went with the teams in
mid-field.    Rowing Club, 9;  Varsity, 5.
The Varsity forwards worked very
hard, but much of the time ineffectively. They apparently have sufficient weight, but do not heel smartly
enough as yet, nor is their bunching
all that could be desired. The three-
quarters are strong, defensively, but
do not seem to realize the full value
of fast passing movements. In this
respect, however, they are vastly improved over their form of last Saturday, and no doubt a few more practices will show a great difference in
their combination work.

t/ Team Defeated
The Varsity 2nd Team suffered its
first defeat of the season when it was
eliminated     hy lyialkina     from     the
first round of the O. B. Allan Cup
competition. The game was played
at Trimble Park and the slope seemed to bother the University boys.
Play opened wth a strong offensive
by Malkins. The Varsty right back
fouled when hit in the face by the
ball and from the resulting kick, Malkins' earned a corner. Sutherland
saved, but the ball was not properly
cleared. A scrimmage in front of
the goal resulted in Malkins scoring
their first, when the inside left drove
the ball through a mass of players
and past Sutherland, who could not
see it. Varsity, who were kicking down
hill, pressed, but failed to score when
Newcombe missed two fine chances.
McLuckie at outside right for Varsity, and Evans at the extreme left,
made many good runs and nice crosses, but the inside men either shot,
wild, or the Malkins' goalie, who played a brillant game, saved spectacularly. Play went both ways with the
Malkins' outside left in the limelight,
but Gibbard, Reid and Robertson managed to keep them from breaking
through. Soon, McLuckie scored Varsity's first goal when he knocked the
opposing goalie over with a bullet
shot from close in.
After half time, Malkins', now kicking down hill, scored their second on
an easy shot which Sutherland let
slip thruogh his fingers. Varsity,
nothing daunted, came right back and
Hee Cant went through for the tying
score. U. B. C. was playing good and
bad soccer, and the Malkins' front,
line, which throughout the game kept
in exact position, did not fall back on
the defensive as did the U. B. C. forwards. Varsity forced a corner and
Newcombe scored. Then with the
game nearly won, the backs let Malkins' outside left tie up the score.
Overtime, which is necessary in all
cup games, was played. Both teams
were tired out and Alsbury, Reid and
Gibbard of the U. B. C. were crippled.
The first, fifteen minutes resulted in
no score. The teams then changed
over and Malkins did the greater part
of the pressing. There was only a
minute to go when the Malkins' outside left crossed the ball which Sutherland only knocked down and the
opposing centre rushed through, thus
winning the game, 4-3 U. B. C. lineup: Sutherland, Warden and Hunter;
Gibbard, Reid and Robertson; McLuckie, Newcombe, Cant, Alsbury and
Tribute to Mosher
Peculiar how fame spreads, isnt it?
Just, .the other day, one of our reporters, who is also a soccer fan and player, ran across a very real and very interesting tribute to Varsity's star convalescent. It was in a big London sports
paper, in the correspondence column,
that a fellow from Brisbane, Australia, had written to the editor about
the stimulus created by the Canadian
tour. The one player he mentioned
was "our" Heggie. In fact, he seemed
slightly awed. He referred to the
"wonderful work of their goal keeper,
who is well over six feet in height. In
one game he saved no fewer than
three penalties in two minutes." Perhaps Heggie could enlighten us.
Just shows how news travels. Brisbane to London, London to Vancouver!     Best  of luck,  Heggie.
Rowirig Club is
Beaten by Frosh
That the U. B. C. freshmen are in
no wise "green" to the game of rugby
was proven beyond a doubt when Varsity's "little boys" breezed through to
a 7-0 victory in a hard fought game
with the Rowing__Club_at Strathcona
Park last Saturday.
Shortly after the starting whistle,
the Rowers were forced to defend
when the Frosh took the ball to their
opponents' goal mouth and scuffled
around in a vain attempt to "push it
across." Play was soon brought back
to centre field and Varsity's stern defence, which featured much long range
kicking had the Rowers guessing. By
this time the "club" team was warmed up, and scrum followed scrum with
both teams going at full tilt. Suddenly a streak of blue and gold flashed
out of the crush and went straight
for touch. In the wild stampede which
followed, the lone runner was swamped, and the ball was lost again. Schap-
elle emerged from the fray and taking
a cool aim from the three-fourths line
placed the ball neatly between the
posts with a pretty drop kick. In the
fierce play which ensued the Rowers
were given a penalty kick within easy
scoring range of Varsity's goal. The
ball sailed in a wierd curve around
the posts and the referee ordered
another try. The second attempt was
most effectively blocked by the Frosh.
With only five minutes to go, Varsity
pushed the ball down field and fought
every inch of the way to touch.
Sheilds converted with an easy kick.
The last few moments of play found
the Rowers maintaining a fifteen man
The game on Saturday revealed a
good deal of rugby talent, among the
freshmen ranks.
Thirxi Soccer Team
(JTrounces Cup-Holders
Varsity Juniors climbed at once into
the winning column and the spot-light
by trouncing Manchester, holders of
the Con Jones Cup, 3-2. The game
was fairly fast, and well contested,
Varsity deserving her success by reason of a more stubborn defense and
more aggressive forwards. Gaudin
opened the scoring a few minutes
from the start with a shot that came
as a surprise. Stevenson got the second on a drive that the University
goalie failed to hold. Manchester
sent their goalie up to the forward
line, a forward back to left-half, and
the left half to goal. J. Stevenson
placed a perfect corner, and their outside left headed through. Varsity was
often in danger from corner kicks but
defended stoutly. Half time arrived
with no change in the scoring. After
the change over, the College got away
nicely, and Piters and Stevenson had
clean "break-aways," only to have
their shots blocked. At the other end,
Stewart was picking them off nicely.
Spillsbury got a nice goal about halfway through, and Manchester came
back desperately, their inside left going between the backs at last to tally.
The play was fast and furious after
this, but neither team made the most
of its chances, and Varsity left the
field with a well-earned win. Manchester previously stood second in
the league table.
Line-up: Stewart; Smith and
Davies; Monroe, Miller and Taylor;
McKinnon, Gaudin, Stevenson, Spillsbury and Piters.

The Ubyssey, as the official organ
of the students of the University of
British Columbia, is interpreted by
the public as being characteristic, in
its expressions, of the whole body.
As a result, each of us should feel
a sense of responsibility in writing
letters to the weekly, for it must be
forever borne in mind that extra mural leaders will regard correspondence
not as the outpourings of the overburdened soul of a single undergraduate, but as the expression of views
typical of us all.
We cannot afford at any time to
forget that the University is a public
institution, founded and subsidized by
taxpayers of the province, and dependent for its continued existence upon
the goodwill of thousands, to whom a
university may mean very little. It
is reasonable to state that there are
many cases in which the occasional
perusing of the Ubyssey is the single
point of contact with the University.
Our publication is sent to the business houses of all who advertise in it,
and thus finding its way into the city
it is brought to the attention of a
number of men of affairs.
One lone student, writing hastily
or heatedly may cause a thousand of
his fellows to be censured. It would
redound to our credit if our correspondence column were one in which
would be found only what constitutes
our honest convictions, couched in
moderate language. The importance
of such a precaution cannot be overestimated, and it behooves all who
would avail themselves of the column
to bear  it in   mind.
The undergraduates of the University join with the Ubyssey in wishing
the best of luck to Arts '28, united for
the first time under a permanent executive. Since this year it comprises almost half our members, it was at first
feared that the task of assimilating
and infusing into it the true spirit
of our Alma Mater, would be difficult
and lengthy. Events have proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt that these
fears were entirely groundless. Not
only have the members of this year
shown themselves loyal supporters of
their University as a whole, but individual members have already attracted the notice of the student body
in no uncertain manner. The stellar
performance of Henry at Edmonton is
a thing of which '28 should be proud of
while the rugby playing of Malcolm
Lange and Shaw has attracted much
favorable comment. Further, a close
examination of the large bodies of Varsity rooters at all the rugby and soccer
games has revealed the gratifying fact
that most of them wear a bit of green
ribbon, prominently displayed. The
freshman team was the only rugby
outfit to win its game last Saturday,
and it looks like the best in the league.
With such a favorable start, Arts '28
should show up prominently in the
months to come, and the whole student body once more wishes them all
At last! We have labelled ourselves
so that he who runs (to or from a
lecture) may read! Dear reader, have
you seen our portal superscription?
It's a little piece of thoughtfulness on
the part of our chief. One of our
brand-new, freshette reporters had actually wandered into that awful den,
the men's common room, while searching for our office. Of course we
couldn't have our reports and reporters lost like that—hence the sign!
We understand that Mr. Quigley has
indignantly denied all rumours to the
effect that he is a feature member
of the advertising staff of a prominent cigarette-manufacturing house.
At the regular meeting of the Students' Council on Monday night final
budgets were passed calling for the
expenditure of $6,890.10 of student
funds. This figure represents an increase of $530.47 over the budgets of

appropriations for the men's ice hockey team have not yet been definitely
decided but it is anticipated that they
will not be in excess of $300.

Arts '25 paid honor to the memory
of the late Dr. Francis Fairchild Wesbrook, first president of the University,
when they placed a wreath of flowers
on his grave in Mountain View Cemetery, Monday afternoon. Dr. Wesbrook
died October 20, 1918, during the influenza epidemic.
Professor F. G. C. Wood, honorary
president of the senior class, spoke a
few words on the untiring efforts made
by the first president in his difficult
task of founding the University.
In placing the wreath Ralph Mathews, president, said that he hoped
other classes would honor the memory
of Dr. Wesbrook in a similar manner.
A meeting was held on Wednesday
noon of last week by members of
the upper years studying Latin and
Greek, to consider the formation of
a University Classics Club. A good
deal of interest was evidenced so
that it seemed feasible to organize
and continue the work dropped by a
similar society three years ago. It
will be the purpose of the Club to
foster the study of classical subjects
by the discussion of general and interesting topics in that field, and by
giving classical students a feeling
of unity. It was arranged to hold
two meetings this term, which members of the faculty have kindly consented to lead, and four next term,
when a paper prepared by a member
of the Club will be read each evening.
Membership this year will be open to
students of the third and fourth years
taking one or more full courses in
Latin or Greek, who are thoroughly
interested in the work. An initial
fee of twenty-five cents will be required. Officers were elected as follows: Honorary president, Prof. Robertson ; president, H. A. Thompson,
Arts '25; vice-president, Miss E. Lucas
Arts '25; secretary, John Grace, Arts
'26. Those wishing to join the club
and these prepared to attend the first
evening will kindly communicate with
the president or secretary immediately. The first meeting will be held
on October 25 at 8 p.m. at the home
of Prof. Robertson, Mr. Robertson
will speak on "The Oracles of the
Ancient World," and the papers for
the next term will be assigned Take

The first regular meeting of the
Undergraduate Nursing Society was
held the evening October 15th, in the
Nurses Home, V. G. H. New members
were welcomed by Miss Ellis, Supt. of
Nurses, and by Miss Carson, President.
On account of the resignation of
Miss Wilkie, Miss MacDonald was
elected to the post of secretary, Miss
Swerdfager was chosen as Athletic
Several amendments to the constitution were passed by the Society.
The remainder of the evening was
spent in discussing work for the coming year.

Editor of the Ubyssey,
Dear Sir—
As newcomers to this University
we, the undersigned, were very much
interested in reading Mr. Quigley's
contribution to the correspondence column of the last edition of the Ubyssey.
Needless to say it caused considerable
astonishment in us.
We, and no doubt all the gentlemen
in the University, quite agree with Mr.
Quigley that there is an element of
discourtesy in smoking in the halls
of the University while they are
crowded with ladies. We feel, however, that Mr. Quigley has overstepped
the mark of ordinary politeness in his
letter. This has no doubt happened
through his ignorance of the way in
which errors and thoughtlessness are
courteously and tactfully pointed out
by one gentleman to another. Had
his letter been couched in such a form
we feel that it would have had a much
greater effect in the right direction.
We do not wish to enter into a controversy with Mr. Quigley on the subject of smoking, but as we are all
smokers we wish to protest against
the extremely unsavoury epithets with
which he has dubbed us and a very
large proportion of the gentlemen of
this University. These epithets are
not only out of place but are even indecent.
We do not wish to encroach upon
your valuable time and-space further,
but wish to thank you now, should
you find yourself in a position to place
this protest in your next edition.
We beg to remain, Dear Sir,
Faithfully yours,

The Editor,
Dear Sir:—
It was with some satisfaction that
we read in last week's issue of the
Ubyssey, the letter signed "Quigley."
The letter brings to the public notice
a matter that is undoubtedly in need
of reform, and our only regret is
that there is no Christian name in
the signature to indicate whether the
writer is male or female, and we are
not quite sure with whom we are
dealing. As, however, the writer has
travelled some miles on a tug un-
chaperoned, we assume it is Mr. Quigley.
To answer Mr. Quigley's letter in
detail might take even more space
than the epistle we are taking the liberty of replying to, but we can at
least say that once the habit of smoking is acquired, a cigarette is some
comfort after a strenuous session in
lab. or lecture room, and. further,
that although the habit of lighting a
cigarette before the open air has been
reached, is perhaps not in the best
of taste, especially in the Arts Building, it is really   no   worse than   the
noisy talk and constant stoppages for
facial refurbishing indulged in by
our lady and lady-like friends.
As for the women's attitude towards
the question, did the author of the
letter never have the pleasure of
hearing his dearly beloved murmur:
"Yes, go ahead and smoke, I really
like it?"
Yours truly,

Dear Sir:
Are the so-called men of the University becoming effeminate? Has the
obnoxious habit of wearing spats taken
such a hold on them that they cannot
restrain from wearing them even
within the sacred precincts of the University?
Do they think it manly? Let me
tell you what men think of it. While
getting a lift around the harbor on the
North Vancouver Ferry No. 3, the
fifth mate asked me if I ever wore
spats. I denied it. He told me it was
the wisest thing I had ever done,
adding that the habit was so strong
on him that he must wear his habitual
spat even while in bed.
On another occasion, the chief engineer of the "Lightfoot" apartments
remarked that he hadn't seen me wearing spats yet. He could stand rubbers, bow ties, or even umbrellas, but
to see young men with those "damned
spats" draped around their ankles.
"Why look at them! See their knees
all trembling!"
Only two cases those, but many
other influential men in various walks
of life, have told me of the weakened
moral and physical condition into
which the ankles of these thoughtless
young men have so often deteriorated.
Yours for healthy ankles,
The outdoors' cabin grew rapidly
under the hands of the members of
both sexes. Whether it was due to
the fine weather or to the female
members we do not know. But this
is certain, that after the honorary
president, Mr. Lightheart, and thirty-
one members of the Outdoors Club arrived, the ceiling rafters were fixed
and the  roofing was  commenced.
Eight members climbed to the cabin
on Saturday and cut sufficient logs
for the Sunday arrivals. The members spent an excellent night chasing
away mice and trying to get more
than one and one-half feet of floorboard to sleep on.    Poor sardines.
About 10 oclock Sunday morning
the rest of the workers arrived and
came to task. Even the girls showed
a fine spirit of cooperation in carrying roof-shakes from the tree to the
cabin. It is believed that those who
split the shakes had the time of their
lives keeping up the supply!
Wonderful Value at
We don't think like
value has ever been offered before. We bought several hundreds of them,
and it is only because we
bought them in a large
quantity that we can sell
them for this low price.

inches; has a speaking

The regular meeting of the Women's
Literary Society was held in the Auditorium on Wednesday, September 15th.
The chief interest of the meeting was
centered in an open debate, "Resolved
that Formal Credit Should be Given
for Student Activities."
The debate was opened by Miss
Helen MacGill who spoke for the affirmative. This started a very interesting discussion of the subject, and supporters for both sides set their views
clearly before the meeting. Although
the speakers for the negative led by
Alfreda Berekley, put up a strong fight,
and presented some excellent arguments, a general vote decided in favor
of the affirmative, as having presented
the best case.
The coming inter-class debates for
the shield should arouse general interest. The first of these takes place
some time next week, the contestants
being the women of Arts '27 and Arts
'28. Try-outs have already been held
and debators chosen from these classes.
Last year the shield was won by the
women of Arts '25, the final contest
being between them and the Freshettes, who had in turn gained the victory over the women of the Sophomore
class. It remains to be seen whether
Arts '25 will retain it this year, or will
rand it over to one of the other
classes. The subject of the debate
has not yet been decided, but competition promises to be keen.
Thirteen permanent officers for the
executive of Arts 28 were elected at
the second meeting of the Freshmen
in the auditorium Friday noon. Mr.
H. B. Smith, president ofthe Men's
Undergraduate Society, took the
Competition was not as keen as in
previous years, many of the officers
being elected by acclamation, but
nevertheless the students are assured
of having their activities controlled by
one of the best executives in the
U.B.C. Those elected were: Honorary president, Mr. F. H. Soward of the
department of history;  president, Mr.
E. Bebb; vice-president, Miss B. Tingley; secretary, Miss M. Walker; treasurer, Mr. R. Shaw; Men's marshal,
Mr. Lange; women's marshal, Miss N.
Robarts; men's athletic representative, Mr. W. Thompson; women's athletic representative, Miss D. Woods;
men's literary representative, Mr. F.
Adams; women's literary representative, Miss K.  Baird;   yell leader,  Mr.
F. Fournier; song leader, Mr. W. Turpin.
Following the elections, Mr. C. Barton gave a short address on the Musical Society and Glee Club. A vocal selection, "Kentucky Babe," was cleverly rendered by the quartette composed of Mr. C. Barton, Mr. F. Low-
den, Miss K. Baird and Miss L. Reid.
The chairman then spoke of the Arts'
annual dance on November 7th, and
particularly asked assistance to make
the function a success. Any tickets
that are left over will be sold to the
Science and Agriculture students.
After Mr. T. Taylor made an appeal
to the students to follow the rules of
the initiation and wear the green ribbon, the elected president took charge
of the meeting, and introduced Mr. B.
McLeod, former yell leader, who gave
a brief talk on rugby, and led the
gathering in a yell for the U. B. C.
The meeting adjourned after singing God Save the King.

Upon the sea and o'er the hills
A  quietness  broods,
And in my heart is gratitude,
For this,  my lovely day.
The gold and flame and blue of day
Are hidden now, and sea and sky
Put on their evening cloak of grey.
And in the heavens there appears
A single tiny point of light,
The herald of a thousand stars
To spray the deeper, darker hues
Of night.
Among the treetops still is heard;
The chorus of a thousand birds
And gentle ripples on, the beach
That woo the worn-out cliffs to sleep,
When comes the night.

The weird and wonderful Heinz
Band that knocked the Longshoremen
out of the Cup last year, is back in
force, and with ^ plan of campaign
that ought to go right through for all
the trophies we ever glimpsed, and a
score of others that will unconsciously be drawn hither by the magnetizing
strains of the 57 varieties.
The potentates of Jazz met last
week to formulate a programme of
the Artistes, incidentally making a
few changes in their method.
The election of officers who will
guide the musicians is as follows:
Hon. President Benny Williams
President  Geo.  Phillips
Vice-President  Bill Turpin
"Squint" Mclnnes
Secty-Treas J. Houkir
While the old tradition of terror
will be maintained, it is their objective
to assemble a really capable band,
run on scientific lines, and under the
instruction of a prominent bandmaster. The one group will provide
the symphony, the other the misery.
The result of the blend will be (?).
In consequence, the president appeals
to all talent, real or supposed, for
either section, and is especially desirous to have the services of capable
players of wind instruments. The
"Promoters of Pep" will meet this
week to arrange for a procedure in
campaign, and before long should be
"heard", in more senses than .one!
The Librarian, Mr. J. Ridington,
feels that silence must be more in
evidence in the Reading Room. No
one would try to read in a noisy boiler-
factory. So also in the Reading Room,
one cannot concentrate for one's work
with constant irritating noises around
him. For his protection then, there
is a library law which requires silence
in the Reading Room.
The Library staff are not policemen
nor do they wish to employ the bartender method to enforce silence.
Rather they depend upon the library
spirit for the silence so essential to
intensive reading. Even the "hello",
or the scraping of a chair spoils this
silence. One person can disturb the
peace of the ninety-nine students seated in the Reading Room. He is unknowingly an "anti-socialist."
Although these annoying conditions
exist, the conduct of the student in the
opinion of the Librarian, is better this
year than ever. But he feels that there
still can be improvement in the silence
of the Reading Room.

Defeat South Hill
Varsity romped home with a 2-1
victory over South Hill at the latter's
home ground, Wilson Park, and again
showed that their bad defeat in their
first game of the season can not be
taken seriously. The Collegians had
the advantage in the play in the first
half and it was late in this period
when Auchinvolle, their new centre-
forward, scored with a well-placed
shot from a difficult angle.
The second half was fairly even.
After about fifteen minutes of play,
Auchinvolle scored again for the Students. This time on a long drive
which the South Hill goalie was unable to keep from between his legs.
As the period was dying the Hillmen
pressed hard and were rewarded with
a goal just three seconds before the
final blast.

The University of British Columbia
has long been justly proud of her
ability, not only along intellectual

And now at last she is to have a
chance to prove her prowess in the
latter to her fellow colleges of Canada.
Last week Dr. Davidson attended
the meeting of the amateur athletic
Union of Canada, held in Edmonton.
There it was urged that the U. B. C.
"join the Union, subject to the approval
of the Students Council. At the meeting on Monday night the Council gave
its full approval in anticipation of
this step. President Klinck was elected Honorary President of the U. C. I.

tied for second in the pole vault in
which event the old record was eclipsed by nine inches.
Henry was only a yard behind Neil-
son of Manitoba in the high hurdles,
and the event was run in the record
time of 17 seconds flat. Neilson has
been regarded in former years as being in a class by himself in the hurdles, but the U. B. C. boy gave him one
of the greatest scares of his life and
forced him to break a record to win
the event. Henry lost the 220 low
hurdles by sheer bad luck, he was
leading all the way to the last hurdle
when he had the misfortune to stumble
and the Manitoba man nosed him out
by a yard. In the pole vault Demidoff
and Henry were among the four best
in the four Western provinces. There
was wonderful competition in this
event and the old record of 10-ft. 1-in.
was eclipsed by Hutchison of Saskatchewan when he negotiated the bar
at 10-ft. 10-in. Henry cleared the bar
at 10ft. 6-in. which entitled him to a
tie with a Manitoba man for second,
Demidoff being fourth. Demidoff gave
a great display of jumping and gamely
filled in the different events for the
coast men.
Charley Mottley turned in a stellar
performance in both the mile and
half mile. The Arts '27 president came
within a yard of beating Manitoba's
best distance man in the half, Jack
Murray, who shattered the half mile
record when he was clocked at two
minutes and three seconds. Mottley
was only a couple of steps behind the
man that irade the record that may
stand in the West for years, because
the track was very fast and the weather ideal for record breaking. Mottley
also came second in the mile, after
making a great finish and beating Jack
Murray at the tape. Cormick the
winner was in a class by himself and
enjoyed a comfortable lead at the tape.
Mottley also did his best in the
three miles and was well up with the
winners until the finish, but his previous efforts told on the U. B. C. man
and he was unable to finish.
Buckley forced the way for a considerable distance in the half but the
pace was too fast for him and he was
unable to place. Thompson in the
sprints made a good showing but he
too was up against a great aggregation of sprinters and it was certainly
no disgrace to be beaten by such men
as Cohen, Hazeltine and Warren.
Ramsell, the U. B. C. star weight
thrower, covered himself with glory
in the hammer when he threw the
16-lb. weight a good eight feet farther
than his nearest competitor. "Ramy"
was a little off form in the event however and could not throw it his accustomed distance or else he would
have broken the record of 100-ft. 3-in.
Ramsell heaved the lead 98-ft. 9%-in.
The U. B. C. track and rugby star also
placed in the discus coming third to
Alberta's champion Bright who hurled
the disc for over 120 feet, breaking
his own record.
Jack Buchanan, Varsity's coach, is
delighted with the showing made by
the team, and indeed it is due largely
to his tireless efforts that the local
students did so well at the prairie
confab. Jack was amongst all his old
friends down there as he coached at
the Albebrta "U" for about fifteen
The U. B. C. men were royally entertained by the students of Edmonton
and made many friends during their
short stay there. The members of the
team were loud in their praises of the
fine buildings at the prairie city as
well as the splendid hospitality shown
by everyone with whom they came in

U. B. C. ruggers made a poor showing Saturday when they were defeated
by the Young Liberals in a ragged
contest. The politicians scored two
unconverted trys while the collegians
made one. Loose scrum work in which
the former rugby men had starred was
the feature of the day but each team
put up such a poor showing in this
work that the grandstand was almost
emptied by the end of the game.
Tyrwhitt opened the scoring early
in the first half when he received the
ball on the college twenty-five yard
line and dashed over before either
team was aware of his intentions.
The try was unconverted. With each
team showing little tendency to follow up on the long kicks the game
dwaddled along until half-time when
shifts were made in the opposing
Tyrwhitt scored in the second half
when Domoney made his only fumble
of the season following a pretty kicking bout between him and Keeling, the
Liberal full back. These men starred
along with Gregg, MacFarlane, Greggor and Lange.
Lange scored for Varsity when he
secured from a pass following loose
scrum work and beat the defense to
the line. The score closed 6-3 for the

Dear Izzie: —
Please excuse writing, etc., since
this is being written from the depths
of my feathery bed. Every muscle I
have, and I didn't know I had so many,
is a source of great anguish when
moved. Such are the punishments for
those who attend hikes, but especially
Arts '26 hikes, which, we must admit
are real ones.
I'm sure you are thirsting for details by now. Soto begin with, the day
was simply beautiful, and although
many of us had taken extra wraps to
protect Our tender chests from the
sea-whiffs on the ferry, we speedily
peeled off as many as possible when
the hiking part began. We arrived, footsore and perspiring at the Second Canyon at about 3.15 p.m. A few of us,
being very foolish and not content with
merely seeing the view, decided to
find out if the canyon was as steep
as it looked. It was—Very steep.
Finger nails and teeth were much in
demand, and if our own were inadequate, we hung on by some one else's.
I skidded on wet logs, landed on heaps
of pine needles, saved myself from
reaching eternity'by means of "blooming precipices," and ruined forever
those darling Cubist art socks received from you in the last mail.
Exceedingly dirty, but strange to
say, still enthusiastic, we adjourned
to the hall, where the saner portion of
the multitude were cavorting to the
strains of a jazz-mad piano, which was
occasionally brought triumphant
tnrough its struggles by Frank Potter's cornet.
At five o'clock we had the loveliest
eats, and after having disposed of fifty
uiiterent types of ham sandwiches
and the same of cake, we resumed the
terpsichorean exercise until 7.30. On
walking to the car, I discovered several
large blisters had found a hiding place
in my pedal extremities, but the ache
from these was soon overwhelmed by
an "exquisite pain," when several
members of the class sought to beguile the long walk by singing.
We landed among the bright lights
tired but happy. I have fleeting visions of tall, wonderful sundaes, street
cars, and then bed—"Ah! ye blessed
haven of the weary, I shall never
leave thee more." I should worry, a
hike like that was worth it.
Yours till—well when you please.
Ex-King George Wins
Intermediate Game
Varsity Intermediate put up a tough
fight against Ex King George ruggers last Saturday at Strathcona Park
and were defeated 3-0.
Varsity took the offensive from the
start, and made several desperate efforts to score, but the King George
squad brought good team work into
play and turned the tables. Mulhern
drew a veritable hornet's nest of green
and black around him as he carried
the ball in a zig-zag race down field.
Both teams were working splendidly
and play ranged around centre with
neither side doing much damage. Varsity players excelled in long range
shooting and King George forwards
played a fine dribbling game. Shortly
before half-time Varsity's defence
fumbled and the King George men
following up closely "pushed it over"
and touched. However they failed to
convert. Both teams were well matched. Varsity's defence was thoroughly
tested by the opponents' aggressive
team play and vice-versa.
That Great Britain shall continue to
be faced with problems of unemployment, and that a scheme for moderate
emigration would considerably relieve
the present distressing situation, were
the kynotes of the address delivered
before the'Vancouver Institute by__Pxo^-
fessor^Xngus last Thursday night.
---^JereT before in the history of
Britain has there been such a large
number of men out of work," said the
professor, and he quoted figures to
show that only one worker in ten is
engaged  in  his  regular  occupation.
The great shipbuilding industry,
which supplied 61% of the world's
tonnage, is now at a comparative
standstill. To meet the needs of the
Admiralty during the time of hostile
submarine activities numerous shipyards sprang up, and as a result thei^
are more. vessels afloat to-day than
can be found trade for. If the evolution of the internal combustion engine
calls for a new design in hulls, several of the new ships now lying idle will
have to be scrapped and building will
proceed as before.
The pre-war revenue on exported
cotton alone, contributed large sums
to balance the cost of imports. Brit
ain's best customers, China, India and
South Africa, now produce almost enough for their own consumption and
unless new markets are found, the
great cotton mills must remain idle.
The condition of the iron and steel
industry is such that few bright prospects for the future are held. The
normal output of iron and steel goods
was twelve million tons per annum,
forty per cent, of which was purchased by the colonies. But the dominions are fast developing their own
mineral resources and have shut out
the mother country's manufacturers,
which in previous years were imported in such large quantities.
The distressing conditions brought
on by unemployment have led many
to regard the future with none but
gloomy foreboding, and the pessimism
of the people is re-echoed in the press.
Yet there is a solution to the problem. In, times of prosperity, a substantial sum should be set aside for
expenditure on public works in times
of relative depression. A policy of,
moderate emigration should be adopted. If factories were to re-equip with
up-to-the-minute machinery now that
labor is cheap, competition with outside sources in times of normalcy
could be met with the greatest ease.
It is also interesting to note that if
the school age was raised to sixteen
years, over seven hundred thousand
youths would have to go back to
school and the unemployment situation would be relieved accordingly.
To-night in the Physics lecture
room, at 8:15 p.m., Mr. K. C. J. Davies,
M.A., F.R.G.S., will present an illustrated lecture on "The Cities of the

The unanimous choice of Friday's
Meeting, of "Brick" BcLeod as Varsity's Yell Leadeiv efficiently expresses the sentiment of the student body
towards its veteran pocket edition of
pep—it is unanimous.
Anyone around Varsity who does
not know and appreciate "Brick" in
a million, ought to wake up properly.

quality that brings every mother's son
to his feet for one last yell of encouragement, when despair grips the
throbbing heart as the tall is pushed

that yell help? Ask 'em! He is the
original man to pile up points from
the grandstand, and on the stage is
an inspiring (and incidentally, perspiring)  personification of pep.

"The best yet!" That was the unanimous opinion of all those who
turned out to the first Sophomore,
event of the season last Saturday.
The honorary president, Mr. Hunter
Lewis, had evidently got on the sunny
side of the Weather Man. There was
no patter of raindrops to drown the
vociferous yelling led by Brick MacLeod. Although the class did not have
the pleasure of seeing either of the
Varsity teams come out on top, they
helped as best they could by straining
their vocal organs. After the first
half of the second game the Sophs,
migrated to the Stanley Park Pavilion. Here the time passed very pleasantly, the "pep" of Fred Smith's orchestra only being outdone by the
goodness of the "eats."
