Rugby Football
Scoreless Draw in First
Senior Game
On Saturday, October ,8 Varsity
played the Canadian Bank of Commerce
in the Miller Clip series.
Considering that both -teams were
new to the senior league, the standard
of play attained for the first match of
the  season  was  exceptionally  high.
The Canadian Bank of Commerce
team k-icked off, and it soon became
evident that, though man for man the
Bank pack were heavier than that of
Varsity, the college forwards would
be able to hold their own.
In the early stages of the game play
flucuated between the two twenty-five
yard lines, the soundness of the touch
kicking by the Varsity backs being the
chief feature. About twenty minutes
after the start, however, the college forwards, following up a kick, got the
ball at their feet and carried it almost
up to their opponents goal line. It was
not until the close of the half that the
Bank again forced the play back to
midfield. Up to this time the Varsity
had had a slight advantage on the
general run of play.
The second half was almost a repetition of the first. Only twice did the
Bank look dangerous. In the first case
a knocked-on pass by one of their
three-quarters,~and in the second a brilliant tackle by the Varsity back effectively spoiled any chance they had of
scoring. The close of play found both
teams working hard with Varsity pressing slightly. The play during the second half was an even break as far as
honors were concerned.
From the foregoing account it is difficult to convey the real brilliance of
Varsity performance, but that our last
year's intermediate team could, within
only ten days of the opening of the
season, not only hold the Bank team
but on the general run of play have
the advantage, speaks well for the future. As an exhibition of pluck and
determination in the face of superior
weight and experience, the team upheld
all that was best in Varsity rugby tradition.
Notes   and   Criticism
The kicking of the backs was- excellent. Dominey, McLeod and Underbill being particularly noticeable.
Though Gunning, McVittie and Gregg
were perhaps the most conspicuous of
the forwards, the remaining four worked exceptionally hard.
The whole team kept excellent control of the ball, loose passing being
non-existent. This is a great improvement over last yeah
The backs should mark up more
quickly if they are going to stop their

Winter Plans
Annual Lit. and Scientific
The lowly "Frosh" in the performance of his daily devotions, discovers
on page 30 of his Students' Bible, that
the Literary and Scientific Department
has as its aim the stimulation of student interests in "Art, Music, Drama,
Public Speaking, Debating, Science and
all forms of intellectual life."
It was in order more thoroughly to
acquaint the new students with these
various objects of student activity that
the Literary and Scientific Department
held a meeting in the Varsity auditorium on Tuesday noon. Mr. A. E. Richards, president of the Department, introduced the presidents of the several
societies represented, who in turn extended a personal invitation to all newcomers.
Mr. G. Clark, manager of Debates,
stated that an invitation had been sent
to Reed College, Portland, Ore., to engage in a double-header debate to be
staged this fall. Mr. Clark -hoped to
hear from Reed College during the
course of the next few days and is
looking for some live-wire debaters to
defeat the American teams.
Mr. G. W. B. Fraser, president of
the Players Club pointed out that the
object of the organization which he represented was to stimulate dramatic interest not only in the college itself
but in the city and province. He also
commented on the Memorial Trust
Fund which the club is setting aside to
provide for stage properties and effects
in the theatre which the club is looking
forward to when the University is moved to Point Grey.
Mr. R. Hodson made an appeal to
all men students to support the Men's
Literary Society, which is planning a
rather extensive programme, embracing many novel features, with.the Students' Mock Parliament predominating. Mr. Hodson drew attention to the
growing responsibility of the college
student to his Alma Mater and to the
world at large, and pointed out the general need for training in public speak-
Miss K. N. Portsmouth made a similar appeal to the Women students on
behalf of the Women's. Literary Society. She said that the new women
could only fulfil her duty by training
herself in the art of public address.
She informed the students that Mrs.
A. F. B. Clark, the honorary president
of the society, had kindly offered to
make this posible by engaging to conduct an informal class in public speaking. ~
U. B. C. Farmers were represented
by the genial Mr. Riley, who pointed
out that as the government of the coun-

Yell Leaders are Elected
Well, we took in the try-outs the
other day—Thursday noon—and we
came away convinced that our capabilities of hearing are quite as undiminsh-
ed as ever, and also that weak lungs
around the Varsity are about as plentiful as hen's teeth. One after another,
seven blushing young men took their
stand and demonstrated clearly that
neither are all contortionists in vaudeville nor is shyness a quality to be
attributed to the fair sex alone. However, seeing that out of seven contenders for the position, all but two were
Science men, we can understand the
blushes—for it's a rare thing to see a
lady where she is most appreciated—
in a Science class. You see there were
many ladies "among those present,"
and perhaps this is where the "men"
members won two out of the three
positions  vacant.
The credit goes to Science without
a doubt, for they outnumbered the Arts
contenders nearly three to one. Wake
up, Arts, this will never do! This is
not an example of the spirit that won
us that Stanford game last year. —and it
won't get us far this year. There was
a chance to do something for your
Varsity, and you fell down on the job.
Get out and hustle—take a chance—
that's what counts.
The elections were held on Friday
noon, and the results are as follows:
Yell King—"Brick" Anderson, Science '23.
Yell Leaders—Toe Giegerich, Science
'24; George Clark, Arts '22.
Tennis Tournament is Concluded
Cups Change Hands
1921 Champions
Ladies' Singles—Miss Muriel Munro.
Men's Singles—Mr. L.  G. Baker.
Ladies' Doubles—Miss Mary Munro
and  Miss Muriel Munro.
Mixed Doubles—Miss Given Robson
and Mr. G. Kerr.
Men's Doubles—Mr. R. J. Munro
and Mr. L. G. Baker.
One of the most successful tournaments ever held by the University Tennis Club came to an end on Friday
afternoon, when the finals of the various events were played. Weather conditions, which in previous years have
deterred the progress of the play, this
year proved to be ideal, and the general standard of the tennis displayed
was'on the whole superior to that shown
in preceding seasons.
Miss Muriel Munro retained the
championship in ladies' singles. She
encountered no serious opposition
throughout' the tournament, and defeated the runner-up, Miss Helen
Kloepfer, in straight sets, 6-1, 6-3.
The men's singles provided some very
thrilling exhibitions of tennis. Perhaps the best game was between Say
and Turnbull. Turnbull, in beating a
player of Say's ability, gives promise
of carrying away the championship in
the near future. In the finals he lost
to L. G. Baker, who played a very
spectacular game, 6-2, 5-7, 6-3.
Miss Mary Munro and Miss Muriel
Munro barely saved their laurels in the
ladies' doubles, when Miss Gwen Robson and Miss Helen Kloepfer forced
them to three hard sets, 4-6, 6-3, 8-6.
In the mixed doubles, Miss Robson
and G. Kerr defeated Miss Kloepfer
and Munro 4-6, 61, 6-3. The excellent
combination play of the winners was
directly responsible for their victory.
Last year's champions in men's
doubles, Say and Baker, went down to
defeat at the hands of Munro and L.
G. Baker, 2-6, 6-4, 6-2. In this match
the accurate driving of L. G. Baker
was particularly noticeable.
The tennis dance was a finishing
touch to the season.
The Tennis Tournament being over,
and good weather still continuing, the
students sent - a challenge to the professors. It was accepted and a formidable band of six veterans from the
professorial ranks were elected to uphold their dignity. But, alas! this was
not to be. One lone prof, emerged vie-,
torious   in  the  singtes.
The students' team was pickerl according to the results of the tennis tournament, It consisted of L. Barker

try was about to fall into the hands of
the afore-mentioned farmers, the Agricultural Discussion 'Club needed the
hearty suport of all Agricultural students in that lively society which has
been so successful in recent years in
retaining the Inter-Class Debating
Mr. Black, of the Sigma Delta Kappa
emphasized his invitation to freshmen,
holding out as an added inducement
the fact that the organization which he
represented includes both men and
women in its membership.
The Musical Society is launching
forth into new channejs and Mr. Harold
Etter announces that the Society has
been successful in enlisting the services'
of Miss Morris, L.R.A.M., as a conductor. A new feature of this society's
activity is the innovation of Student
Recitals, which will be held throughout the winter.
.After the resignation of Mr. G. H.
Scott, former secretary-treasurer, had
been accepted, the meeting adjourned.
The announcement that Mr. A. H. Fin-
lay had ben elected to the vacant office
by acclamation brought loud applause
from the students.
Candidates for vacancies in the Players Club nearly filled Room 33, when
the meeting was held last Thursday
noon. Although in former years the
membership of the Players Club has
been limited to fifty it was decided, at
the end of last term, to increase the
membership this year to sixty. This is
due to the growth of the attendance at
the University. Mr. Wood, in a witty
speech, greeted the candidates and
promised them that if they left a
quarter with Mr. Bob Hunter (just outside the door) they would certainly
have the privilege of trying-out. The
successful candidates would then sober
up their unqualified joy at becoming
members, by contributing three quarters
more to Robert. On the other hand,
those who did not succeed must forfeit
their quarter, but might have the privilege of trying out again next year—
for another quarter (if the fee isn't
raised). Mr. Wood then advised the
students to read the play "The Twelve
Pound Look," by Barrie, and to memorize their lines, the try-outs being held
this week on Monday and Wednesday
afternoons. This has undoubtedly been
one of the reasons why, on suddenly
entering a room, one has frequently
found a much embarrassed young
couple hastily resuming normal positions, and trying to appear natural.
Just what the motto of the Players
Club is vye don't know, but according
to what we have heard this week it
must be:
"I  don't  believe  you—yet."
Two members of the Players Club
executive having resigned, the nominations (committee have suggested the
following re-arrangement:
President—Miss D. McGill, Arts '22.
Vice-pres.—Mr. Lacey. Fisher, B.A.
Secretary—Miss K. Leveson, Arts '23.
Commitee Member—J. V. Clyne,
Arts '23.
If any other nominations are handed
in, an election will be held at the semiannual meeting, Friday, October 14.
The Musical Societv is indeed fortunate this year in ,having secured as its
conductor Miss Ida Morris, L.R.A.M.,
a talented and thoroughly trained musician. Miss Morris was born and
brought up in the cultured atmosphere
of Ely, the English Cathedral city, and
received her first musical impressions
at its yearly spring festivals. She has
studied under Dr. Charles Wood, Cuth-
bert Whitemore, Sir Hugh Percy Allen,
principal of the Royal College of Music,
London, and conductor of the Bach
Choir, and Tobias Matthay, of the"
Royal Academy of Music, London,
whose book "The Art of Touch" is the
authority on modern technique. It
seems almost superfluous to add that
Miss Morris is an excellent pianist and
violinist, a specialist in class singing,
and an able conductor; for the mere
fact that these musical giants, who can
pick their pupils from practically the
whole world, considered her worthy of
a place among the limited number of
pupils they care to accept, speaks for
itself. ,
For seven years Miss Morris was the
head music mistress at Ely High
School, England. In 1915 she was the
instructor in music at the Victoria Summer School for teachers. From September 1920 to March, 1921, she was
the substitute instructor in music at
the Vancouver Provincial Normal
School. From 1915 to 1919 she was instructor in music at the Victoria Provincial Normal School, where she also
conducted a glee club and orchestra.
The Victoria Daily Times, in speaking
of the last Normal School concert given
under her direction, said: "The whole
standard of the programme was delightfully good, and it was not long
before the audience discovered—if they
did not know it already—that Miss Ida
Morris, instructor of . music at the
school, was very largely responsible
for the preparation and success of the
various items." Mr. D. L. McLaurin,
principal of the Victoria Normal, in
testifying to her work in this connection, said: "One could hardly speak too
highly of the most efficient work done
by Miss Morris in that position. Not
only was her work excellent, but her
influence was always educational^ uplifting and ennobling."
Miss Morris is coming to the University not only to direct the musical
society, but, which is equally important, to foster the interests of music
generally. In spite of the small student
attendance at the musical society concerts last year, we are inclined to feel,
nevertheless, that there is a strong and
sincere interest in music among the
students and that they will not fail to
recognize the great opportunities accorded to them by Miss Morris's presence in the University.

The new director of Hart House
Theatre is Bertram Forsyth, a plav-
wright, producer, and dramatic critic.'
The combination of such a man with
the highly modern and lavishly equipped Hart House Theatre promises a
most enviable season to the Toronto
undergraduates. The following clipping, with the intended programme, is
from   "Toronto   Saturday   Night:"
"Diction is a strong point with the
new Hart House Director, and he is
going to try to stimulate interest in
that phase of expression in Toronto,
though he recognizes that that is a
matter which will take time. Diction,
he said ,was in a bad way, even on
the London stage, and if some one
does not come to fhe rescue will become a lost art.
"Beginning early in November and
spread over the intervening imonths
until June, Mr. Forsyth and the syndics of the Players Club have arranged to give the following series of
productions, which will commend
themselves to everyone interested in
the drama:
(1) Triple bill—A Night at an Inn-
Lord Dunsay; Pantaloon—Sir James
Barrie; White Magic—Algernon Blackwood and Bertram Forsyth. ,
(2) Candida—Bernard Shaw.
(3) Chester Mysteries of the Nativity-
(4) Playbill—A Georgian revue arranged by Bertram Forsyth.
(5) Magic—G. K. Chesterton—Preceded by a one-act Canadian play.
(6) Rosmersholm—Henrik Ibsen.
(7) God of Gods (a Canadian play)
—by Carroll Aikins.
(8) The  Tempest—Shakespeare.
It is Mr. Forsyth's ambition also at
some future da$ to give intimate productions of musical classics like Mozart's "Cosi fan Tutti" and other works
unknown  to  this   community."
To put University dramatics under
centralized control, members of University Players Association have suggested that college theatricals be under
the direction of the A. S. U. M. This
plan will be taken under advisement
by the dramatic faculty, and possibly
by the board of control.—L^niversity of

to close this week when the Sophs
successfully broke up the annual Freshman Hayride. One man's arm was
broken in the mix-up. The Sophomores, though outnumbered, have been

A meeting of the Arts '24 men was
held on Monday noon. The newly elected president, Mr. Jack Grant, was in
the chair. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the coming track-
meet. Athletic representative, Mr-. Pete
Palmer, then addressed the gathering,
asking that each man turn out and do
his best for the class. They had won
the meet last year and it was up to
them to repeat the good deed again this
session. Arts '24 seem cheerful over
the prospects, and if confidence will
help, they have won already. Lewis
and Godwin were elected "yell leaders."
A meeting of the executive of Arts
'24 was held Tuesday noon for the purpose of planning class activities for the
coming months.
Mr .C. W. Hodgson, Men's Literary
Representative, called the attention of
the meeting to the necessity of choosing debaters to uphold '24 in the Inter-
class Debates. All those 'interested
were urged to communicate with Mr.
Hodgson at once.
It was moved and seconded that a
class hike be arranged for Saturday
afternoon, October 29. The matter was
left in the hands of a committee consisting of Misses Ormrod and Creelman
and Messrs. Grant and Cantelon. Any
suggestions from the class will be appreciated.
It was also decided to apply for the
use of the auditorium some Friday
night in November, when a class party

The initiators of the Freshman class
should aim at a twofold purpose. First,
to test the spirit of those to be initiated
and second, to provide themselves with
wholesome fun at the expense of the
freshmen—fun which both will enjoy
in the end, and which will result in
good fellowship and a University feeling.
We might point out, as a few do at
this time, that the initiation ceremony
is a sort of trial by which the courage
and "gameness" of the new explorers
of the things of the mind are tested.
To a degree this is true. Certainly
it is the object most consistent with the
higher ideals of University students
than that commonly offered: "Let's
take our medicine this year, so we can
take it out of next year's class."
But whatever may be the philosophy
of the initiator and the initiated the
fact remains that a sensible form of
initiation, rather than a violent haz-
concerned. If the initiation is merely a
night of unbridled physical encounter,
it is meaningless and degrading; but if
the horseplay can be reduced to a minimum, and replaced by some ceremonial,
not solemn and formal, but conducive
to real fun and fellowship, and at the
same time significant of something
more than mere force—then it will be
a tradition worth preserving. Let the
freshman do some plain hard work, and
experience some discomfort, but when
the consummation is reached let him
feel that he has done something worth
while to warrant his admission to the
standing of a University man. Hazing
need not be utterly suppressed, because
in proper bounds it achieves a warrantable end: As each "frosh" is made to
do his seemingly painful act we, who
know the pain is but temporary or
sham, can laugh heartily. And when
he realizes that he has been duped, that
his caution was unnecessary and therefore ludicrous, he, too, is forced to
join in the merriment. Thus the college spirit is introduced. But if our
freshman find out that he has been subjected to real and lasting pain, or
worse, is seriously injured, there is
utterly no humour in the situation for
him or for any decent-minded human
"It is not that'-taste! js not plentiful,
but that courage is rare." We all
have opinions, yes, it is not too optimistic to say that even the least of us
has opinions. We all know whether
we like red and green in combination,
or whether we do not; we admit to
ourselves that our taste in ties, clocked
hose, and political parties, is not too
bad; we have (some of us) vague ideas
about whom we like in painting, music
and literature. But (get this) no one
but ourselves ever knows anything
about these rudimentary and fragile
beginnings of taste and opinions within
us simply and solely (and sadly
enough) because we have not the moral
courage to up and declare them in the
face of opposition. Now, the foregoing
examples of undergraduate ideas might,
if carefully fostered and exercised,
sometime become mature convictions of
genuine merit. But if we have not
the strength to declare our preferences
in public, we shall soon lack the
strength'to hold them in private. They
will not survive their infancy, and we
shall lose that mark of the individual,
that characteristic thing for which
there is no accounting—taste. So—and
this is the moral that we knew was
coming—before it is too late, before the
tastes of others have been foisted upon
us as our own, let us remember what
we owe ourselves, and be courageous.
Did you every try to count the number of dismembered "Ubysseys" that
strew the common-room and locker-
rooms on Thursday afternoon, left to
Mr. Tansley to be swept up and burned?
And did it ever occur to you that each
copy represents a considerable expenditure in time and money, and that as
the organ by which our University
life is given expression, it may conceivably have some interest to people
who do not belong to the student body?
We all talk about the need of missionary work to counteract the various
misconceptions which are rife concerning conditions here; we would all like
to give the average inhabitant of the
province a real idea of the University's
needs—in some cases, of its existence.
Surely this could be well accomplished
by sending them copies of the paper
which gives evidence that we are alive
and active.
So, when you have read your" Ubyssey" send it to a friend who is not
directly in touch with the University;
or send it to your home high school,
that our future freshmen may realize
that the provincial University has a
real existence, and is not that vague
thing known as an "institution."

6 by 4 inches.     -    :   :
"That no freshman be allowed to
wear spats, cane? or derbies on University property."
The enforcement of these rules, if
adopted, is to devolve upon the Second
Year of each faculty or college.

Dear Sir:—At the time of writing it is just
two weeks since tlie opening of the term, and
a large number of the so-called "Handbooks"
have not yet been delivered to students. I
beg to ask what merit they possess to justify
their  rarity?
I will not expatiate on the all-too-apparent
deficiencies of the binding which will certainly not endure constant use for six months,
as the book is intended to do. But let us
look inside. The title page tells us that
three students gave their efforts to the production. They had five months for the job,
but what is the result? The bulk of the
book is given to diary, time-tables, etc.,
which required no editing; the 40 pages of
reading-matter consist of vague "write-ups"
which give no useful information at all, and
executive lists which are now out of date
owing   to   resignations   and   new   elections.
The book's only possible value would have
been to a bewildered Freshie of one day's
standing; but I venture to say that when
the Freshie receives his copy, after two weeks
at Varsity, he knows more about it than the
Handbook   contains.
Yours,  etc.,
Dear Sir:—I am glad to see that something
has been done in the way of a competitve
reporting system for the Ubyssey. It is only
reasonable that the best man for job should
have it. While I recognize that without response from the students the proposition will
fall through, I feel that the fact that you -have
made the offer should not be overlooked
when, later on, people feel like criticising
"write-ups" of the Various functions and
games. This competitive system has given
them the chance to reduce future criticisms
to  a minimum.
They may not  take  advantage of it, but  at
least  the  Ubyssey  has  done  its  best.
Dear Sir:—I venture to proffer a criticism,
which to many may not be highly favorable.
No doubt it has received little consideration
but its vital importance merits the attention
of   all.
•"Whether or not the students should under-
taKe to conduct an organized system of exchange in books, is a question that should
be settled once for all. If we agree upon it,
we should then attempt to facilitate matters
by running it in conjunction with the University  Book Store.
The value of this book store to the University students cannot be denied, as many
of us know through our own experience and
it is not the right spirit for any organization
to complicate the affairs of another. For this
reason, I would suggest either that the Book
Store take charge of the student exchanges,
or that the two work in partnership.
The present book stock is over $20,000 in
value; it would therefore, be rather uifficult
for the students under present conditions to
take charge of this business. If we cannot
do this, We ought at least to help them as
much as possible. ihis question cannot be
settled this fall, but it could easily be carried
through   next   year.
Yours  respectfully,
L.   McL.   '22.
Editor of Ubyssey :—
Dear Sir: I noticed in the column of
last week's issue of the Ubyssey that
the library hours were to be considerably curtailed this session. For the
last few weeks this fact has been
brought more forcibly to my attention.
For, in order to do - any extensive
refrence work at night, I have had to
haunt the reading room until half past
five in the afternoon, then with luck I
could gather the few necessary books
under my arm and depart. In the evening I leisurely peruse these volumes in
the men's common room or room F—
neither of them very conducive to study.
But I am only one of many. The
greater number of students are now
settling down to work, especially those
in the upper years' or doing graduate
work, and in a great many instances
students have little or no time during
the day to work in the library, particularly Science and Agriculture students
So that, with the library closed at night
they are practically prevented from
doing the work they should.
If no grant is forthcoming to provide
for student assistance, I know for a
certainty that sufficient volunteers from
the Senior Year alone could be obtained to do the work of invigilator at night
without  recommendation.
And  lastly,  Mr.  Editor,   if  anything
is to be done, it should be done at once.
We   have   already   lost   three   weeks—
we don't want to lose our year.
Yours truly,
G. S. C. 'z z
The idea of a community house was
evolved last spring in the minds of
several out-of-town students of Agriculture. As the idea is now an accomplished fact, details of the scheme
may be of interest to readers of the
Ubyssey. The account published last
Saturday in a down town paper
is somewhat misleading for we are not
in any sense competing with the people
who have hitherto provided us with
Our   aims   are:
1. To stimulate college spirit by our
closer relationship.
2. To allow ourselves the fullest mea
sure   of   freedom   together   with
home   privileges   and   comfort.
3. To assist each other in our studies.
4. To approximate "living-in"  condi
tions   found  in   older  institutions
of learning as well as assuming
our   share   of   responsibility   and
business management.
Lastly—we hope to keep our expenses
within reasonable bounds.
They are not solely an "Agriculture"
community, but a body of U. B. C.
students. They have regular study
hours. They have a cook and an assistant cook. Students are responsible
for the tidiness of their own rooms.
Two of the number are detailed each
week to assist in washing dishes and
they also have charge of the furnace.
They have a board of directors. They
have time for singing college songs,
and they already possesses considerable
vocal talent, and although, as yet, there
are only sixteen they express the hope
that the idea will grow and that the
next year will see a group of community
houses established.
"We hear less of vocational training
than we did—for good reason, since its
utility is passing. Presently we shall
hear more of avocational training,
which shall give every youth destined
for the mill or office a hobby for the
centre of his garden of leisure." A
good text, and its application is of
present  interest.
There exists within the University
societies of many kinds, each with its
appeal to that instinct in us which
makes us delight in hobbies. If we
become a member of the one which is
most attractive to us, the fellowship of
its members, the quickened interest in
the problems studied, the broadening of
our mental horizon, are all ideally
supplemental to the course we are pursuing in the everyday interests of a
future vocation. We give to the society some slight support, and in return
it gives us a hobby with possibilities,
a hobby which develops in proportion
as we use it, a hobby which may be
the consolation of our declining years.

Clothes! From a high and austere
point of view they are, of course, superficial. But to ninety-nine per cent, of
ordinary women undergrads. they are
of importance. Don't pretend otherwise. You are judged, perhaps unconsciously, but none the less accurately,
by your clothes. They express your individuality. Hence, though you may
have no personal interest in the matter,
a little consideration is demanded by
public  opinion.
To be well dressed does not necessarily mean to be expensively dressed,
but rather to be suitabily dressed. Certain hair dress is suitable to the grammar school, which is not suitable to
the University. Costumes, which are
appropriate at an evening reception,
are not so in a lecture room. At a
meeting of the Women's Undergraduate Society, on Monday, certain rules
and recommendation concerning the
dress of the women students were passed. To enforce these, the committee
have the willing co-operation of all the
students. Remember that these conditions are not imposed upon you by
autocratic power. They voice the decision of the majority of your fellow-
students, and they will be enforced by
a committee in office by popular election. On the streets of the city your
university pin marks you as a representative of the U. B. C. If you cannot be up to the standard in intellectual
capacity, at least attempt to be so in
outward appearance.

Last Saturday Varsity Soccer team
downed Mt. Pleasant by 2-1 at Powell
street grounds. Varsity started off
with a rush.and had hard luck in not
scoring, the ball being on the Pleas-
ant's goal line twice. Though Varsity-
played one man short, Baker was rarely given a chance on the oifsides. Mt.
Pleasant missed a penalty. This was
followed by a strong attack in which
they scored.
In the second half Varsity came right
back and counted through Cameron,
who played in whirlwind style at centre. Varsity kept up the attack and
again Cameron put the ball in the net,
winning 2-1. Jackson played his usual
game, while Manson and Lundie were
always trying. Lineup: Mosher, Baker,
Manson, Jackson, Buckley, Emery,
Lundie,  Cameron,  Cant,  Rushberry.
A meeting of the U. B. C. Track Club
was held on Monday last. It was well
attended and the gathering viewed with
some enthusiasm the approach ot
Sports Day. The eliminations will be
held on Oct. 19th at 3:00 p.m. Members wishing to compete are asked to
submit their names to the committee in
charge—along with the information as
to what events they wish to enter. Clais
competition will undoubtedly be keen
this year, and many are the conjectures
being passed around as the probability of Arts '24 being able to duplicate
their feat of last year.
Two new events were voted on and
passed, these being that the three-mile
Marathon be held on the cinder-track,
while it was also decided to have a
tug-'o-war contest between the different
faculties. (It is rumored that Arts

Munro, W. Baker, Say, Turnbull and
Hincks. Theese were arrayed against
Dr. Boggs, Dr. Todd, Dr. Walker, Dr.
MacDonald, Mr. Logan and Dr. Seyers.
The first five students won their respective matches. The professors
seemed to show lack of form which the
students had acquired by their steady
tennis  in the  tournament.
The most interesting match of the
series was between Dr. Boggs and I,.
Baker. Before a large gallery of students and a few professors the two
contestants started their first set. Bril*
liant play was seen on both sides, but
L. Baker took the offensive from the
first, compelling Dr. Boggs to play on
the defensive. Baker was driving hard
but had difficulty in getting the ball
in the court. His placing was very
good indeed. Dr. Boggs played a
steady game throughout which nearly
won the match. The second set was
won by Dr.. Boggs. In the third the
games mounted up evenly on both sides
until the score was five all, 'but the
excellent placing of Baker won the
set and  match 7-5.
The winners in the other matches
were: W. Baker, R. Munro, Turnbull,
Say  and   Hincks.
Two matches of doubles were played
on Monday in which the students and
profs, broke even, each taking a match.
Dr. Boggs and Dr. MacDonaW played
L. Baker and Munro. The professors
played fine tennis and worked well together, while their opponents seemed
a little off their game, frequently finding the net in the way of their drives.
The net work of Dr. MacDonald was
particularly brilliant. The profs, won.
Hincks and Turnbull played Mr. Logan
and Dr. Walker. In this match the students redeemed their honor by defeating the profs.
U.   B.   C.   ROWING   CLUB   HOLDS
The members of the U. B. C. R. C.
held a work-out Saturday afternoon.
They expect to hold at least two workouts a week, Wednesday and Saturday afternoons. Mr. Whyte, of the
Vancouver Rowing Club, trained those
who have had some experience, while
P. G. Jones put the new men through
their paces. About, a dozen men turned
out, though it is hoped there will be a
larger turnout in the future.
Though this is the initial appearance
of the U. B. C. Rowing Club, they are
confident of success and are planning
one or two races against the James Bay
Rowing Club, at Victoria, during our
annual games held this winter.
The elected officers for the year are:

is also required.

The above faults are only due to

The best of feeling prevailed throughout the match and the sporting game
played by our opponents was much
Fighting a heavier and more experienced team, Varsity Intermediates went
down to defeat before the Centrals at
Woodlands Park last Saturday by the
score of 25-0.
Starting to rush as the whistle blew,
Centrals soon scored through Stewart,
who fell over the line after some very
loose work. Cann converted nicely.
After a few minutes Varsity was
awarded a free kick and Watters, who
played a good game for the winners,
caught the ball, cross-kicked to Laid-
law who dropped it over the bar from
ten yards out. The pace began to tell
on the Centrals, and play slackened up
slightly. Just before half-time .however, Stewart, following a wild kick,
again scored, bringing the count to
12-0, Cann failing to convert.
-In the second half, Varsity worked
very hard, but was gradually forced
back. Irvine, obtaining the ball from
a line-out, plunged across the line for
another touch, which was easily converted. Almost immediately, Varsity
were forced to save, and Irvine, catching the kick, ran across again, Cann
again converting. For a time the fine
kicking of Cant, Varsity back, kept the
play in midfield. Centrals were awarded a free kick outside Varsity goal
but failed to score. Shortly before
time, Keeling, the Central back, taking
a pass from their left wing, scored the
last try of the game.
Mainly owing to the small field and
to the continual talking of the Centrals,
the playing was rather ragged. Varsity
on the whole, played a hard game, but
more practice in tackling would help
the three's.

As seen by
CORDUROY dressing gowns
were a happy inspiration. Especially when they are made in
pretty designs—such as being
fastened over one side so the
throat forms a V—and when the
back is shirred. Pockets are
made for the ever-elusive hand-
kerehief, and are bound in satin
in the same shade as the gown,
which may be American beauty,
blue, plum, or apricot. These are
$15.75. If not in corduroy, then
why not in beacon cloth? Price

■ Last Saturday afternoon four stalwart members of the Outdoor Club,
headed by Mr. J. Walker, Science '22,
shouldering their blankets, and much
grub, caught the three o'clock ferry for
North Vancouver and Grouse Mountain. Their objective was the cabin
which was started last winter and
which the club is making every effort
to complete this fall so that it can be
used during the coming winter months.
When completed, it will be a snug little
two-roomed cabin, lined with bunks,
with a stove in one room and a fireplace in the other.
The party arrived at the cabin shortly
before dark and the few remaining
minutes of daylight were spent in getting poles for the bunk and then covering them with branches, or "feathers"
to make them less hard. Then came
a supper of sausages, beans and the
trimmings. After supper a very pleasant evening was spent, as the social
columns have it, in playing five hundred (?) and in frequent repetitions of
that well known phrase "that reminds
The laying of the roof, has been a
matter of some difficulty. The cedar
to be found at that altitude is not at all
suitable for shakes. It does not split
well and when it does split it generally
goes crooked. Hence the shakes are
made very thick and are of all shapes,
and with such materials0 a good, raintight roof is not easy to make. However, it is possible, and is being done.
The roof 0;f' the. main cabin is now
finished, and the framework and sides
and most of the . roof of the additional
room are built. Still, much remains to
be done. The roof has' to be finished
and then braced from the inside
to withstand the heavy weight of snow
which will lie on it this winter. The
floor nas to be put in, bunks made, the
fire-place built and many other things
done before the place is really habitable and comfortable.
Next Saturday afternoon a gang will
again climb the hill with the intention
of spending the night at the cabin
Others will catch the early ferry the
next morning and between them they
hope practically to finish the work. Ii
any men of the Varsity would like to
join either of these parties, they havt
only to see any one of the executive 01
call at the publications office to get full
particulars. Among the men students
only those who have put in a good day's
work at the cabin will be admitted tc
full membership in the club.
We hope to see a big gang on hand
next week-end. Women students whc
wish to join the club are cordially invited to come up Sunday morning. They
will .not be asked to do much work,
but they can be assured a pleasant
day's  outing.
A general meeting of the Science
Undergraduate Society was held Wednesday, October 5. The constitution
of the Science Court was re-adopted
and the following officers elected: Prosecuting attorney, C. Sivertz; provost
marshal, E. Gregg.
The social programme for the yeai
was outlined. It was decided to hold
a Smoker on Saturday, October 29, and
the annual dance at Lester Court on
February 24.
The men then listened with great in
terest and appreciation to a man-to-ma-:
talk from our Honorary President, Dr.
Davidson. Dr. Davidson again kinclv
extended the hospitality of his hom«!
for social functions of Science classes
Science men are preparing for a big
vear and are breaking into new fields,
notably the Men's Li'frary Societv.
Now we know where the ruddy complexion, the tan, and incidentally, the
patches on the Science men come from.
We previously had the idea that it was
from hard out-door work, and when a
few legless chairs disappeared from the
men's common-room—suddenly disappeared—we had no apparent reason for
changing our minds. Just as suddenly
as those chairs disappeared, so have
they again appeared in full view—reinforced by an old plank, and two boxes
—all combining to contribute toward
the tan and patches. No wonder there
is a falling off in attendance of Science
S. R. O. sign is hung out early and late
in their new open-air common-room—
and woe betide the unfortunate Arts
man, who should commit the supreme
folly of appropriating one of the aforementioned seats. No wonder a little
freshette told her mother that the city
had established an employment agency
at the Varsity, for it certainly look?
like it. Perhaps, after all, we're only
jealous, for who doesn't like to sit in
the sun, do nothing, and, between naps,
appraise the quality of passing beauty.
There is but one flie in the pie, as it
were, and that is—a Vancouver wintei
is coming on—and a method of avoiding losing'all their tan in an hour is
occupying the science mind at the present time. Our advice to freshies and
others is "Watch your umbrellas, lest
they  disappear  and  yet  re-appear."

"Mr. Clelland, I'm Thoroughly Satisfied"
Somehow it was the way the young J. W. Prescott said it that pleased
Clelland so well. Just as he was going out with his new suit he said:
"Mr. Clelland, I'm thoroughly satisfied, and I'll be back in a week or
two for an overcoat.
Mind you it isn't the first time fellows have spoken like this and it's just
fine to know you're giving perfect satisfaction.
People know now that they get full
value for their money at Clelland's and
it's the new fall woollens and models
that are the great attractions. It's always cheaper to get a made-to-measure
suit or overcoat right up to the minute
in  style than an ordinary  ready-made.
Right there at 633 Hastings West up a
few steps over the Wistaria Sweet
Shop, and you're in Clelland's place
in less'ri a minute.

The second issue of the Ubyssey is
about due. There have been elections
galore and a new flock of officers put
into position, but where are the expected results? All of the societies in the
university elect publicity agents—or at
least secretaries. One of the principal
duties of these officials is to see that
a proper report of the doings of theit
society is turned in to the Publications
To date the results have been extremely disappointing. There have even
been practically no entrants into the
competition for reporters, and the work
of gathering the news has so far been
entirely upon the shoulders of one oi
two over-worked people. Does the
Ubyssey mean nothing to anyone out
side of the Publications Board? If so
we are better off without it. One great
fault—the predominating weakness—oi
the majority of society officials in the
past and present is this: they accep'
the nomination—the proferred position
and the applause—but that's all. So
far the idea of doing any work in recompense for the position they enjoy
has been entirely overlooked. It is timt
a stop was put to it all, and if, instead
of personal friends, the student body
elected men and women with even a
scant show of pep in them—there would
be a great improvement. It's up to the
students—members of various societies
—to demand one of two things from
their representatives: results or their
resignations.    Think it over, then act!
Everybody was glad to see everybody
else; the girls had those fluffy, tennisy
things on that feel soft when you touch
them and make you want to keep on
touching them until they tell you not
to; the fellows bravely tried to feel at
ease in stiff collars after their summer
freedom of a collarless shirk And all
of us limbered up our dancing muscles
with great joy and gusto.
Perhaps the orchestra felt the prevailing stiffness, for the trombone
squeaked audibly more than once. But
we had a very good time and only
complained that the regulations of the
Students' Council chased us home at
After supper—we had it in the Cafeteria, by the way, ice cream 'n everything—came the feature of the evening, the presentation of cups won in the
tournament. Mr. Argue gracefully
turned this duty over to Dr. Clark and
Dr. Boggs. Dr. Clark presented the
Singles cups, the Ladies' Cup to Miss
Muriel Munro and the Men's Cup to
Mr. Argue for Mr. Lorimer Baker, who
was not present. Dr. Boggs, in a few
well-chosen . remarks presented the
Doubles cups, the Mixed Doubles to
Miss Robson and Mr. Kerr, the Ladies'
Doubles to the Misses Muriel and Mary
Munro, and the Men's Doubles ' to
Messrs. Bob Munro and Lorimer Baker.
To lend dignity to the occasion, Dr.
and Mrs. MacDonald, Dr. Sedgewick
and Mrs. Sedgewick, Dr. and Mrs.
Clark, and Dr.  Boggs were present.
