Topic of Talk
To Legal Club
Mr. Tupper Discusses Father of
Commercial Law
"The Life of Lord Mansfield" was
the subject of the address given by
Mr. Tupper to the Law Club last
Monday night. "Lord Mansfield was
the father of Commercial Law," he
said. "He molded the subject into
the code almost as we know it today."
Mr. Tupper dealt with the life of
the famous jurist, who was born as
William Murray in 1705 in Scotland,
of very poor parents. At the age of
fifteen he entered Westminster
School, and did so well that he
gained a scholarship to Christ
Church at Oxford. Then in 1742 he
began his career in the House of
Commons, where he excelled In oratory and parliamentary debate. In
ten years he became solicitor-general and leader of the House.

A striking contrast to the depressing weather of these days is presented by the interior of the Horticulture Department green house where
an unusual display of Indoor chrysanthemums is now at its best.
In the University collection, which
is open every day for inspection,
are 150 verities of the popular flower. These include Japanese re-
flexed, anemone, pompons, singles
and rosny intermediate types. Tlie
colours <»nge from white, through
cream, yeJoW and pink to the deepest bronze. This collection represents the result of considerable labor. The plants have to be started
early in the spring with cuttings
which are rooted in sand transferred
to flats and bedded out in June only
to be brought back to the greenhouse a month later
The Horticulture Department advises all students who are In ony
way Interested In flowers to take
time to visit this unique profusion
of blooms.
Those students who were granted
bursaries by the government are
asked to'Wet in Arts 106 on Monday,
Nov. 16, at 12:20.
This will be a short meeting and all
are asked to try and be there.
Campus Swamped
With Chapbook*
Copies of the 1931 University of
British Columbia Chapbook have
been distributed to members of the
Letters Club, from whom students
may buy them at twenty-five cents
each. A special effort is being made
to Sell several hundred copies on the
campus in order to make the undertaking a success.
The Chapbook is a student effort,
guaranteed by the Alma Mater Society, and it is hoped that there will
be no need to call upon the treasury
to meet a deficit on thia account.
Copiea may alto be bought at the

Klinck Says University
Renders Public Service
"The University ol British Columbia aims to serve through its laboratories, its library, and its staff,
all classes of people tn its constituency," declared President Klinck addressing the Vancouver Institute in
Ap. Sc. 100 Monday evening.
"The University is more than a
repository for truth, it is a discoverer and disseminator of truth extra-
murally as well as Intramurally,"
stated the President.
Dr. Klinck outlined the too frequent popular conception off a university as that of an institution
holding itself aloof from tiie every
day business world. Many citizens
to-day picture universities flourishing In splendid isolation and presided over by a staff bowed down with
erudition and protected by high
walls of convention. Such n point
of view is about as accurate as that,
of another type of citizen who regards the university as a public ter-
vii-e station, distributing gratis
knowledge of all kinds.
These conceptions might have been,
true fifty years ago, but since then
universities have come to realize
their obligations towards the ndult
In Canada we find the University
of Toronto leading in the adult educational movement. A department
of University extension has been organized for the purpose of fostering
extra-mural activities, and its wide
range ot courses has proved most
The University of Alberta potasses an admirable extension service,
of which travelling libraries and
radio addresses are features.
U. B. C. haa no organised department of adult education but much
valuable work has been carried on
through an extension committee.
Initial efforts were confined to Vancouver, but later, financial contribu-,
tions by the faculty helped to extend the service,'This year a grant
of 1750.00 has been made, supplemented by contributions from local
organizations. For the year ending
March 31, 1031, the Extension 'Committee reported a total of 133 subjects treated In 20 radio addresses
and 297 lectures. On the average,
each lecture had an attendance of
85. Forty-eight localities outside
Vancouver were visited, and it Is
hoped that in the near future systematic study-groups may be established in the larger centres of the
A total of nine extra-mural courses are offered on the campus and
the University Library is available
for many purposes. It has been consulted on several occasions by such
firms as 4he B. C. Electric.
In closing, President Klinck stated
that the ever growing demand for
Adult Education is one of the most
hopeful indications of educational
progress In tiie province. It to principally due to the voluntary efforts
of the faculty that such progress has
been made possible.'
Lucille Day, travelling secretary of
the Student Volunteer Movement,
will speak to a troop of students at
the home of Dr. Brown, principal of
Union College, 1707 McGill Road, at
4 o'clock Friday afternoon. She will
speak on her experiences in Turkey.
Miss Day graduated from Oberlln
College, Oberlln, Ohio, In 1922. She
was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. In
1924 she went to Turkey where for
five years she was an educational
missionary under the American
Board of the Congregational Church.
While there she waa arrested and
tried for "doing religious propaganda." After five months of trial she
was found guilty, and given 3 days
Imprisonment and a fine of 11.30.
But the case was appealed to tiie
supreme court. A year later when
Miss Day returned from a year of
teaching in Salonlca, Oreece, aha
found ihe had been pardoned in a
general amnesty when the President
of turkey, Mustapha Kernel Pasha,
pardoned soma 300 other "criminals."
Miss Day has lived iii Turkey during acme of the moat interesting
changes that have ever taken place
anywhere. She haa a sense of
humor which make her stories of
experiences and happenings there
especially Interesting.
A group this evening, at the home
of Molly Ricketts, 314* Third Avenue West, at 8 o'clock will also meet

Home Economics
A four-year course leading to a
degree in Home Economics has been
established at this university, starting November 2. Full details of the
course have not been prepared and
It is not likely that a definite plan
will be drawn up until a Head of
the Department (or a Director of
the course) has been appointed, or
until proper equipment has been assembled for - the strictly technical
Home Economics subjects.
In the meantime students are required to take the classes designated

outlined for the third year is for
the session 1931-1932 only. Next
year, when a department ln Household Science has been established,
the course in Blo-Chemlstry will be

Herr Fischer
Talks to I.R.C.
On Magyar Art
"Economic and cultural conditions
in Hungary," was the topic of an
address given by Herr M. Fischer,
noted Hungarian economist, to the
International Relations Club In Arte
Md Thursdly noon.
Herr Fischer began by tracing
briefly the troubled nirtory cf Hun-
gary ftam the twelfth century. "The
present and future of every country
are deeply anchored m the past,"
he said. Hungary has always been
the prey of constant invasions. Flrat
the Mongols, then the Turks swept
the country, and left in their wake
a depopulated and devastated land,
which became the prey of Imperial
greed on the part of great powers.
Empires competed tor the possession
of Hungary, and there waa always
present tiie element of dissatiafted
nationalism, which did not make for
Then came the war. Hungary On
the losing side, lost jiearty eighty
percent of her territory and more
than one-third of her people. ' But
she still possesses great vitality, and
her people look forward with confidence to better things.
"The standard of education is the
best test of the aspirations of a
country," continued Herr Fischer.
The standard of scholarship In Hungary at the present time is very
high. A system of technical and non
technical schools provides for those
who are not attending to enter universities, as well as for those who
are. French, English, Italian and
German are taught, and many students go to England and France on
scholarships. Every year three Hungarian boys are sent to the United
States to study. The universities of
Hungary are comparable to those
anywhere in Europe, and have
splendid libraries. "The best school
is compulsory military training,"
stated the speaker. In Hungary
every youth has to serve at least
one year of military service.
Hungarian scholars have made
names for themselves in the service
of other governments, notably Great

it doe* not know what it Is supposed to do.
Neither doe* anyone else. St fails to train tha
majority of its student* to make their way in
the world. Moreover, it dots not furnish as
i substitute say real education in a way calculated to stimulate aii intelligent interest in
, cultural matters. College Ufa struggles under
the shadow, of exam*. Lecture* are not given
■ for sny other purpose than to prepare student*
to writs down tha result of a year'* work inalde
two or three hours, and woa betide tho student who dares to uphold a heresy. At the
and of his period of education the student
can echo half a dozen professional prejudice*,
think* Socialism "ought to work" without
knowing why, can stutter a few words of
French aad believes that H20 is Latin for
J'water." Than ha can obtain a position as
officeboy and read tha comic strips whan tha
hoss is away.
Tha modern university tries to combine
tha functions of the old university with those
of tha technical and business schools. Its
achievement la not outstanding. Students
learn too late that they have made a mistake
in entering college, and have to spend year*
trailing behind their fellows who were not attracted by the current ideas as to the advantages of mass-production in the degree racket.
Their chief gain is the removal of any misplaced respect for the college graduate.
It has frequently been said in attempting
to defend the modern university that it is
merely a starting point whence students can
continue their intellectual developments after
forming study habits. With the examination
system In vogue, the habit usually formed is
based on the experience that with two days'
study before an examination, most atudenta
have a good chance of bluffing the professors
and gaining tha mystical letters after their
names even if their ideaa on the course are
suck that they cannot give an original opinion
on any of it* aspects.
Apart from lectures, intellectual Ufa at tha
university is limited to "discussion" clubs. In
these, under the stultifying influence of set
subject and stodgy papers read beneath tha
forbidding gaze of a professor, interested students learn that lectures are not the only
places where one can sleep with one's ayes
It would appear that perhaps the graduate

is about the latest taklie and his pet subject

As this paper goes to press the "Pub" office is the property store house of a big-time
spiritualist medium. Shades of days gone by
sit at type-writers, lounge on radiators and
diligently read copy. Former editors are in
charge while the present staff has gone to see
what its professors look like.
The task of putting out the "Ubyssey" has
been increasing as the paper has continued
to expand. Graduates, returning to see how
the youngsters are getting along, find that in
their time the job was a sinecure compared
to difficulties facing the crew now at the helm.
Way back in Fairview Days, the "Ubyssey"
made its first appearance under the "name"
of the "Anon." The paper then was published
once a week and had four pages about one
quarter the present size. The "Pub" office was
then a two-by-four room in one of the shacks
where one had to open the window in order
to get room to write.
As the university has grown so has the
college paper. It is generally recognized that
the size and quality of the paper is a reliable
index of the maturity of the university. With
the "Ubyssey" being sent to all Canadian and
many United States' universities it is well
that the U.B.C. is represented by a journal
Students interviewed by tha Toronto Varsity recently approved of the pipe almost unanimously. Cigarettes, said one co-ed, give an
aspect of pansiness. "A pipe
The Case For even seems to Impart a look
Pipe Smoking of intelligence to some men,"
observed another. A male
student believes that a pipe denotes intellectuality.   He smokes one himself.
On the other hand, such opinion* as "all
pipe-smokers ought to be exterminated," and
"the pipe Is not a necessary feature in the face
of any college man," were obtained. A strong
point, however, was scored by him who said
that "a pipe is more economical, due to the
fact that any girls of my acquaintance have as
yet smoked only cigarettes."
The Varaity la an enterprising journal, and
frequently presents its readers with the concensus of opinion on guch important *ubjecta.

Many students will attend the performance
of Bernard Shaw's The Applecart at the Vancouver Theatre today or tomorrow, Some probably went last night. In book
Apropos Tlie form* the play is introduced by
Applecart a very interesting preface of
twenty-five pages, aad a review of it here may be of Interest.
Shaw denies he has committed an act of
apostacy. "The comedic paradox of the situation is that the King wins, not by exercising
his royal authority, but by threatening to resign it and go to the democratic poll.. . . Hie
Apple Cart exposes the unreality of both democracy Sad royalty as our idealist* conceive
them . . .. Beside*, the conflict 1* not really
between royalty and democracy. It is between
both and plutocracy, which, having destroyed
the royal power by frank force under democratic pretext*, ha* bought sad swallowed demo-
cracy. Money talk*: money print*: money
broadcast*: money reign*: and kings and labor
leaders alike have to register its decrees, and
even, by a staggering paradox, to finance its
enterprises and guarantee its profits. Democracy Is no longer bought; It is bilked. Ministers who are Socialists to the backbone are
as helpless ln the* pip of Breakages Limited
as its acknowledged henchmen: from tiie moment when they attain to what la with unintentional irony called power (meaning the
drudgery of carrying on for the plutocrats)
they no longer dare even to talk of nationalising any industry, however socially vital, that
hag a farthing of profit for plutocracy still left
in it, or that can be made to yield a farthing
for it by subsidies."
"In short, those critics of mine who have
taken The Apple Cart for a story of a struggle
between a hero and a roomful of guys have
been grossly taken in. It 1* never safe to take
my plays at their surbaban face value: it
ends in your finding in them only what you
bring to them, and so getting nothing for your
"Breakages Limited" is the name given to
industries that oppose progress to ensure profit, especially those that flourish on war and
the threat of war, accidents, waste, disease,
smashes and crashes of every kind, buying and
smothering inventions and checking movements that would decrease their business.
Shaw goes on to discus* democracy. He
points out the enormous socialistic and communistic development* that have taken place.
"Our industrial and social life ia set in a huge
framework of public roadways, streets, bridges,
water supplies, power supplies, lighting, tramways, schools, dockyards, and public aids and
conveniences, employing a prodigious army
of police, inspectors, teachers and officials of
all grades in hundreds of departments. We
have found by bitter experience that it la im-
possible to trust factories, workshops, and
mines to private management. Only by stem
laws enforced by constant inspection have we
stopped the monstrous waste of human life
and welfare it coat when it wag left Uncontrolled by the Government .... Nothing
could save us in the war but a great extension
of Socialism; and now it is clear enough that
only by still greater extensions of it can we
repair the ravage* of war and keep pace with
the growing requirements of civilization."
Parliament is antiquated, says the playwright. "We need in these islands two or three
additional federal legislatures, working on our
municipal committee system instead of our
parliamentary party system. We need a central authority to co-ordinate the federal work."
Our representatives should be chosen for intelligence and ability, believes the 'surprising Mr.
of the high quality at present shown (exclusive
of this issue).

of congratulating the "youngsters" on the efficiency displayed in carrying on the augmented

Murphy Optimistic Over Sea-
son's Finances
The Alumni Association, under
William Murphy, president, expects
a successful year with last year's
deficit turned into 'a balance, and
support received from graduates In
all parts of the world. The' number
of alumni to now over 2100.
■ The "Graduate Chronicle," tiie
first edition of which appeared last
spring, will be Issued again this
year. According to Mr. Murphy, the
first edition waa largely an experiment and he hopes that the volume
will be more of a financial success
thi! year.
It is possible that a social function
for graduates will bo held later in
the year. Up to the present, chief
activities of the Alumni Association
have been in connection with Homecoming. This year English rugby
players of the University entered
the athletic field with a team of
graduates called the Occasionals.
The annual alumni dues of $100
have been largely paid, announces
Mr. Murphy, and an exceptional
number of graduates have become
life members, paying face of 110.00.
Many alumni members in distant
parte of the world have become permanent members and, in addition,
have sent expressions of goodwill to
the University of British Columbia
and the Alumni Association.

Wett, it was none other than Pathos
of his Majesty's regiment, the Forty-
ninth cloak and ault Cleaners.
" Pair of pants on you," cursed
wm none other than. 'Til net have

questioned seriously one another's
ancestry until Pathos shouted,
"Enough of this and also of that. I'll
settle your score behind the Luxembourg at three. My card, m'sleu."
"Thanks," said our hero. "I'll look

into Athos whereupon without much

"The world has now reached a position where it must face the facte and
realise that the restoration of business
prosperity can only be obtained by
real work and the adoption ef lower
standards of living," said Dr. Car-
rothers in an address to tho Agriculture Discussios Club at tiie home of
Dr. and Mrs. Barn on Oct. 10.
The speaker traced the financial situation in Europe during the last year
and showed how all the countries
had been endeavouring to put off the
day of reckoning by the expedient
of borrowing. When this method was
carried too far the result was the recent financial upheavals in Germany
Britain and elsewhere.
The present deplorable conditions,
the speaker thought, were the result
of the capital destruction which took
place during the War. The penalty
lor this destruction has to be paid and
it is probable that the period of payment will not be a short one.
In answer to questions Dr. Carrothers explained how the departure from
the gold standard would affect various countries saying that it would add
en additional 300 million dollars to
Canadian debts. He showed also how
this would be partly compensated by
the advantage which Canadian trade
would receive from the lower rates of

Wall, wall, folks, here we are at
the final round of tha battle of the
century between Slaughter House
Casey and Abbatolr Alf. Anderson
and the principals have not as yet
come out of their respective corners.
All round me cite a crowd of thousands of people or anyway a thousand people, alright I'll settle for BOO.
At my left sits mayor Jimmy Halk-
er, you know that popular mayor of
New Yolk, and on my right aide alts
Texas Ouinan herself smiling to all
the boys.
The boys arc advancing from their
comers now and are shaking hands
aa this is tha final round and thc
boys must settle it now as to who
is |o wear the challenger's crown so
lie can challenge the challenger of
the champeen In the light-heavy-
light and heavy division of welter
weights. They go back to the corners. The gong rings. Casey rushes
out and delivers a vicious left to
Anderson's face. It has a totting
effect. He's falling and this program comes to you through the
courtesy of tho Whoodt and Whatsit
Co., makers of the guaranteed never
tailing Thlgmajig. I you haven't a
Thlgmajig you are lost ln this modem day world.
To get back to the fight that blow'
did not have quite the telling effect
that I expected it would have and
so the boys are now waltzing around
the centre of tho ring as the orchestra In the pit plays "I'm In Love
With You Honey.' They have their
aiesta broken by th* referee. Thi*
is unusual and he wttl probably be
brought up before the rules com-
missions and other commission's not
excluding ■ tho salesman's for Interfering with boxers in their line of
duty dance*.
So the boys are broken apart and
a little action comes once more into
the ring much to the surprise of the
two boxers and the gratification of
that dirty referee, the action ia
chased all over tiw ring by the two
boxers end is finally trapped In the
referee's beard and killed to death
whUe the spectators or would you
call them in present day, expeeta-
tors, cheer.
Casey hit* with tolling effect on
Andy's chin. He goes down thc
floor ln a nice elide. The referee
counts. He counts up to ten. no, he
doesn't count up to ten. He doesn't
know how to count up to ten so he
counts five twice and he is just in
the middle of thinking whether he
has counted the second five when
Andy arises and socks Casey. Casey
is surprised and sinks with a betrayed expression to the ground
floor while the referee goes into
huddle with himself to decide
whether the next signal is out or in.
Well the show must go on folks
and, while you are waiting to hear
whether Casey la out Mr. Warbur-
ton Washington Pretzel, our personality director and assistant announc-^

express them simply and lyrically,
and to concentrate on them in an
endeavour to develop a truly Amer
lean art.   Countee   Cullen,   Claude
McKay, and Lang-ton Hughes have
been called the "great triumvirate'
in modem Negro literature although
the names of Jean Toomer, Alain
Locke,   DuBois   and   many   others
should also be Included.
"Sincere  efforts  are being  made,
moreover, to eliminate such weaknesses as binallty of theme and too
great an Intensity of racial bitter
nets, to encourage in their stead a
pride ln racial background and nic
lal type of beauty, and to raise to
a  cultural,  dignified  level  the  ex
pressions  of  Negro  philosophy   and
the folk spirit and history of the Af-
ramerlcan people."
Negros have been more effective
in song and poetry than ln prose
and drama because of the peculiar
singing quality of their work. DuBois has written fine prose and
some plays but no great Negro playwright has yet arisen. Since 1845,
however Negro actors have appeared
in plays written by white men. "The
crowning achievement of the stuge
Negro was found In the person of
Paul Robeson, whose superb presentation of the leading roles of 'All
God's Chllluns Got Wings' and
'Porgy' won instant and universal
Then came Marc Connoly's 'Green
Pastures.' The Idea of God walking

Dick Farrington: Dick is an end, is
88 years old and weighs 168 lbs. Before entering Varaity three years ago,
the star wing man played in the
junior league for the Yamis. This'is
his third season on the Blue and Gold
Big Four squad.
Art Murdock: as kicking half back
Art has been a valuable asset to the
U.B.C. team this season. Until he
came to Varsity last year, Murdock
confined his rugby to the English
code, having starred with the Prince
of Wales high school team. He is 20
years of age and tips the scales at
182 lbs.
Doug Maclntyre: one of trickiest
ball carriers in the game here, Doug
haa been an outstanding acquisition
this fall. Apart from a abort stretch
In 1929 when he waa playing tor the
Blue and Gold, Maclntyre has not
played Canadian Rugby before thia
year. He ia very light, tipping the
scales at only 187 lbs. Doug is 22
years old.
Jack Steele: After being out for
most of th* season with a broken jaw,
Jack Is returning to participate In his
second intercollegiate contest. Another of tho Varsity lightweights,
Stealer who la 20 years of age, weighs
only 136 lbs. He holds down a position at end, although he has in the
past starred at half back.
Bill Morrow: After a long sojourn
In junior ranks, Bill has broken into
senior company this fall, and *» setting
the pace tor the boys in the Varsity
backfield. He is small but extremely
shifty, and la usually good for big
gains. Morrow weighs 138 lbs. and is
20 years old.
Doug Gordon: Starred with the
Acrltas in junior company three years
ago, played for the Varsity Intermediates for two seasons, and elevated to Big Four this tall, marks \
Doug's progress in Canadian Rugby.
Although starting the season as a
quarterback he was later moved to
flying wing, and is now proficient in
both positions. At 20 Doug weighs ISO
Ken MacDonald. With the benefit of
three seasons In senior company on
the New Westminster squad, Ken, a
19-year-old snap, is the latest addition to first string ranks at Varsity.
The husky lineman weighs 200 lbs.
Jim Mitchell: One ot the oldest
veterans on the Blue and Gold squad,
Jim Is now playing his fifth season
on a Varsity Rugby team. Starting
when the sport was in Its infancy, he
has been one of the outstanding members of the team for the last four
years, as an Inside. Jim has no peer
on the campus, and despite his lack of
weight, is one of the most aggressive
linemen on the B. C. aggregation. Jim
tips the scalta at 187 lbs., and Is 24
years old.

Varsity Junior Soccermen received
a white-washing oh Wednesday from
a band of roving footballers who call
themselves Woodland Thistles. The
score at half-time waa 3-0 and read
8-0 at full-time.
Varsity played with ten men
throughout the game, 'Kent" Atwater, Rann Matthison and Hughie
Smith failing to put in an appear-
once. This left Varsity with but
seven regulars to fall back on, the
other positions being filled up by
F. Chu, Orme and Manager Denne.
Considering this handicap the Blue
and Gold defense did well to prevent the fast-stepping and smooth-
working Thistles' forwards from adding further tallies. On the whole,
however, Varsity lost to a team
which had a superior understanding of the game.
The Thistles started the game with
a rush and combining effectively,
scored two goals in tit* first ten
minutes. From then on mid-field
play ensued, the Thistles being alwaya dangerous in their rushes. Varsity mad* a atw fruitless sallies Into;
their opponent*' territory.. Just before half-time the Thistles scored
their third goal.
After the oranges Varsity seemed
to have more of the play, but the
Thistles put on extra pressure and,
through pretty combination, scored
at frequent Intervals until they
piled up eight markers.
Cy Smith was very prominent at
right back for Varsity. It was largely due to his heady play that the
Thistles' forwards did not score on
more occasions. Kincade played a
rushing game alongside of Cy, and
tlie two were in the thick of the
fight all the time. Shayler, between
the posts, worked hard and kept the
score down as far as was possible.
The rest of the team, however,
seemed sadly disorganized, probably
owing to the fact that they had far
too much work for ten men. Of the
forwards, J. Mundle at centre was
the most effective, but was given
little support.
Owing to the cancellation of all
matches by the Students' Council,
the Varsity Senior Soccermen will
not go into action this Saturday. By
virtue of its 3-1 triumph over the
Regents last week Varsity has an
excellent chance of going right to
the top of the league table.
