College Ruggers Surpass Score
Registered By Vancouver
Two Days Before
Over three thousand spectators witnessed Varsity's first fifteen in their
victory last Monday over the Edmonton "Rep" Team. British Columbia
weather has been kind to the visitors
from Alberta and the game was played under ideal conditions. The score
was 16-0.
Brilliant Play  by Ternan
For the first ten minutes neither
side had any marked advantage. Then
the Varsity scrum heeled thirty yards
from the Edmonton line—"Gee" Ternan came into possession, drew the
visitors defence, with a masterly feint
pass and slipped through followed by
Rex Cameron. After making sure of
the opposing full-back's intentions,
"Gee" passed to Cameron with ten
yards to go. Rex scored behind one
of the posts. The whole manoeuver
was brilliant both in design and execution. The try was not converted.
For five minutes in the middle of the
first half Edmonton pressed heavily.
The team played them off however
and a run and kick by Palmer relieved the situation. Just before half-
time came Varsity's second score.
With play on the visitors' twenty-five
line close to one side of the field,
Ternan got the ball, made an opening,
and scored a fine drop-goal with nearly a forty yard kick.
The  second  half  opened  with  the
score at 7-0.   The college team pres-

Last Minute Interview with Student Representatives
Elicits Interesting Details Concerning
their Reception and Activities
The Government has voted $1,500,000
for the immediate construction of permanent buildings on the Point Grey
This news is too momentous to have
missed a single member of the Stud-
eit Body when it spread through these
halls yesterday. The return of the
Campaign Delegation from Victoria,
and the confirmation they brought of
rumors which many had hesitated to
believe, was, in actuality, "the best
news since the armistice."
A last minute interview which the
"Ubyssey" obtained with members of
the Delegation elicited these flash details.
The attitude of the Members of the
Hoi:se towards our delegates was cordial in the extreme—the Premier
especially being most genial.
The speech which Mr. Richards
made to the House was characterized
as one •<! the most stirring and convincing speeches delivered in some
time. According to one member of
the Delegation, "Ab" was better than
his best—his speech had the triumph
of sincerity.
The Petition was brought in to
Capt. Ian McKenzie, who piled it up
on the desk in front of him until he
was almost hidden by the rolls of
signatures. It created a decided stir
in the House when six pages were
called, loaded with forms, nearby
members assisting in the process, and
sent to lay the fifty thousand—odd
names—before the Speaker's Chair.
The Speaker was nonplussed for the
moment and there was a pause
throughout the House. The impression registered was evident, and
should satisfy the most hopeful of
the Campaigns supporters, and confound the skeptics.
The Victoria Times gave strong endorsement to the Campaign, and as-
xisted in influencing Public opinion
in Victoria to a gratifying extent. The
Colonist, oi a more Conservative tendency, was somewhat luke warm in its
appreciation of the Student project,
but the Delegation visited the Editor,
and after showering him wit!: fuels
and figures, won an admission, of the
justice of the Campaign cause.
Much interest has been aroused by
the keen competition for parts in the
Xmas plays this year. The judges
have finally decided on the following
casts: "The High Priest," Constance
Peter, Percy Barr, Peter Palmer and
H. N. Cross; "Rococo," Beth Mac-
Lennan, Mary Bulmer, Margaret Lewis, Frank Turnbull, H. Warren, and
M. Dickson; "The Dark Lady of the
Sonnets," Beatrice Johnston, Dorothy
Dallas, A. Zoond and T. Taylor; "Vengeance Heights," Mildred Teeple, Molly Jackson, L. Edgett and G. Shore.
These plays will be presented in the
Auditorium of the University on the
evenings of November 23, 24, and 25.
Thursday and Saturday nights will be
reserved for students only, while Friday will be given up to the invited
guests, including the Faculty, Senate,
Board of Governors, old members and
friends of the Players' Club. Owing
to the increased number of students
this year, the Players' Club regrets
that the number of outside invitations
must be reduced, none being given for
Saturday night. Students are requested to watch for further announcements of the place and method of distributing tickets for Thursday and
Saturday nights.
At a meeting held Wednesday noon,
Miss Lowe addressed the students and
faculty of the U. B. C. on the subject
of the National Student Conference
which is to be held in Toronto, December 28 of this year. The S. C. M. aim
is to encourage sincerity and frankness in discussion of religion, and a
willingness to seek the truth. It is
aiming to find a solution to some of
the greatest problems which confront
Canadians to-day, problems dealing
with the rural, industrial, and international situations, and to encourage
frank discussion among students. The
S. C. M. is trying to create tnat harmony which must exist between the
church  and modern science.
There are now two B. C. people on
the general committee, Mr. H. Higgi-
son, and Mis Lila Coates. This year
either 6 or 7 students from U. B. C.
have the honor of going to this council, and of meeting some of the finest
students from other Colleges. Miss
Lowe stated all expenses would be
pooled. She also gave an outline of
the plans of the conference. Not only
will there be lectures given by some
of the college students, but each person will be expected to give his or
her ideas on the various problems
brought up.
North Vancouver Players Are Unfortunate  Enough to  Score
Against Selves.
Con Jones' Park was the scene of
another win for the Varsity soccer
team Saturday afternoon, when they
took the north shore "Brother Bills"
into camp to the tune of three goals
to two.
Play opened and the Elks pressed
the ball going down the field, putting
Varsity's goal in danger. Baker, driving beautifully, relieved a strained
situation, but the Elks again chased
the leather into Varsity's half. This
time the efforts of the North Shore
team bore fruit, Williams, their outside right passed neatly to center.
Rorko trapped the ball and the resultant shot gave Mosher no chance to
Elks Scere For Varsity.
Varsity was not long in equalizing.
Dean took a corner, Wilson headed
the ball to Mclnnes, who in turn headed it to Rorke, the. latter beating his
own goalkeeper for Varsitys' first
goal. U. B. C. representatives however, decided to procure a goal for
themselves. Cameron passed neatly
to Crute, who was playing well up.
Crute by a clever play, succeeded in
putting Varsity one up. The Elks
worked hard, but Mosher was 'on the
job' every minute of the time and
cleared on three or four occassions
when the opposition became dangerous.
A   Fast  Second   Half.
During the second half, the players
did not spare themselves, and hit a
fast clip, hut for some time were unable to score. Cameron again starred,
when, after a brilliant piece of work,
he passed four of the opposition and
tapped the ball to McLeod. Johnny
took no chance, Wells was helpless
and the score stood three to one in
our favor.
Although the light was failing, the
Elks refused to give up the game without a struggle. With but a few minutes to go, Williams who was always
dangerous, secured the leather, and
with a spectacular shot, just managed to beat Mosher who went full
length in an effort to save. U. B. C.
representatives came back strongly,
the final whistle finding the Elks on
the defensive.
The   Players.
For the Varsity, Baker showed up
extremely well, his drives, when clearing, being a feature of the game.
Crute's work was also outstanding,
his tactics helping the forwards considerably.       Cameron.     McLeod    and THE     UBYSSEY

Science '24 won the Inter-class Basketball championship on Saturday
night, when they defeated Arts '26 by
the score of 18—15, after the fastest
and best game of the series. Two
overtime periods were necessary before a tie score could be broken.
Both teams started out at a fast
pace, with all the players combining
well. After several minutes' play,
Ternan made the first score on a foul.
A field goal and a foul ended the
scoring and put Arts '26 in the lead,
3—1. The half ended with-the score
At the beginning of the second half,
Arts '26 had it over the Science men
like a blanket, and by excellent playing ran up the score to 9—1 in their
favor. They were working beautiful
combination plays, while their opponents relied on individual effort. When
the fans had just about awarded the
game to Arts, Science '24 staged a
great rally which earned them a tie
score, H all. At five minutes overtime, the score was 15 all, and at the
end of the second overtime period Science '24 led, 18—15. Harvey and
Bickle were the stars of the game.
Arts '25 won third place from Science '25 by defeating them 31—18, in
the first game after a fairly fast game.
Arts '25 excelled in passing and their
shots at the basket were deadly.
Results of Friday's games: Science '24 beat Science '25 by the score
22—8, and Arts '26 beat Arts '25 by
the score 23—20.
A very lively crowd turned out for
the Outdoors' Club hike to Lynn Valley on Saturday morning despite the
unfavorable weather predictions.
After travelling to the end of the
Lynn Valley care line the party de-
cended to Seymour Creek, encountering much mud on the way but arrived
at the creek without any casualties.
Continuing up Seymour Creek the
party finally arrived at a bridge near
the intake and as it was lunch time,
proceeded to demolish the numerous
delicacies  which  had  been  brought.
After lunch the party continued the
hike across the Creek and followed a
logging road for miles back into the
woods until the road ended. Here a
halt was called and after numerous
impromptu speeches had been made
the return trip was begun.
The home journey was made by a
different route, following the creek
down to Keith Road. The more energetic members of the company had
vanished by the time Keith Road was
reached. However, in spite of the
fact that one party started for Dol-
larton and others lagged behind admiring the scenery, we all finally arrived
together, after a brilliant dash for the
street car. The ferry trip was all too
short and there was no doubt in the
minds of our fellow-passengers as to
who we were. Everyone went home
satisfied with the day's outing.
(Continued from Page 1)
Professor Sedgwick in expressing
his interest in the S. C. M., said that
the spirit of the conference was above
commendation, and nothing but good
could result from it.
Mr. Fleming spoke of the great possibilities of the conference. He proposed that a delegation should he sent
to the conference, not only to get an
ideal of what was going on among
other students, but to bring back there
ideas and reports in order that we
might benefit by them.
Mr. Herbert Grey is coming west
in January and will be able to address

Lundie work really well together and
are a pleasure to watch. Varsity's
two new men, Wilkinson and Dean
played a useful game. The first named will improve greatly as the season
progresses, while the latter, outside
of a tendency to get off-side played
well indeed. Varsity, it seems has
found its stride and undoubtedly will
set the pace. For the Elks, Williams
was the shining light, while Rorke,
outside of his unfortunate accident in
scoring against his own side, did very
well. "Big Jim" Wilson worked hard,

The, Ubyssey has been requested to
publish the University Track records,
the names of holders and times made.
The 'Varsity Track records are not as
good as they should be but this is
largely due to the heavy track they
have been' run off, and it is expected
that a good number of them will go
by the boards this coming spring.

The Alumni Society of the University of B. C. held its annual dance
last Friday night at the Alexandra
Dancing Pavilion.
Long streamers of blue and gold
carried out the color scheme, while
from the window casings hells of the
same hue were suspended.
The supper room also was gaily
decorated. Mrs. Sadler, Mrs. Sedgewick and Mrs. Schofield acted as patronesses.
So popular has the system of instruction become at the B. C. Commercial and Secretarial Schools, that
during October a waiting list was
filed for those enrolling November 1.

Although so far little has been heard
from the  women  of  the  U.  B.  C.  in
the way of sports, the executive has
been   working   hard   and   their   plans
give   hopes   of   great   things   for   the
| year.   The girls are turning out much
J better  than  last year  in  all  the  dif-
' ferent    activities.      The    Basketball,
; Hockey  and  Badmington  Clubs  have
; greatly   increased   their   memberships
] while   the   swimming   club   has   had
to turn many away.
The inter-class games will probably be held early in the spring. These
are looked forward to with great enthusiasm, particularly now that there
are the two cups to be played for.
The Freshettes seem determined to
carry off the coveted trophies but the
"Sophs" are planning a "surprise" for
their younger sisters, while the juniors and seniors are equally determined to bring glory to their years.
The Varsity senior girls' basketball team will be chosen next week.
As Helen Tatlow is the only member
of last years team turning out to prac-
i tices, places are being sought very
keenly. It is rumored that Bea
Pearce will turn out with the team
this year.
In connection with the Victoria trip,
Varsity women are planning quite an
I extensive   series   of   sports,   and   are
fielding    teams     in    Grass     Hockey,
Basketball, and Badminton.
Although it is early in the season,
plans are already being formulated for
the annual Varsity trip to Victoria.
The James Bay Athletic Association
is said to be fielding extremely strong
teams in all events, and competition
will undoubtedly be stronger than
The ruggers have shown up extremely well and should show Victoria the way. The Governor's Cup
competition has shown that there is a
great deal of talent among the hoop-
enthusiasts and U. B. C. should be able
to come through with several wins.
Norman Cox is training the swimmers,
and can always be relied upon to
utilize to the best advantage those
who  turn  out.
The relay team, was only beaten
last year by inches, and this year
should win the event. The various
teams show great promise and
Varsity has every reason to be confident of a successful and enjoyable

sed more decidedly than ever. Five
minutes from the opening whistle,
Ternan started another run when tne
ball came back from a line-out. Bili
Cameron took "Gee's" pass and scored by the corner flag. The kick was
again unsuccessful. A short time
afterwards McVittie broke away Iroin
a line out and Hodson, Ternan ana
Carlisle all had their share in a run
which was only stopped five yards
from Edmonton's line. Soon "Gee'
started another run, passed to Gees
who continued in tine style and
Buchanan finally scored under about
three opponents. This try was not
converted. Following the ball in a
forward rush Carlisle collected the
last three points in the match when
he fell on the ball behind the goal
line after the Edmonton full-back
fumbled it.
Varsity's Scrum Weak.
Varsity showed a complete mastery
in all departments with the single exception that the Edmonton forwards
got the ball in the scrum on almost
every occasion. The visitors' three-
quarters were placed so far up, however, in a purely defensive formation
that it was almost impossible for
them  to start a  successful run.
The college team showed that
effectiveness in the loose, which is
coming to be known as a feature of
Varsity first team play. All played a
splendid game. With three regular
players, Gross, Penwill, and Purdy out
of the game the win is surely cause
for satisfaction. The yell leaders
handled the Varsity rooters to good

The Third Division Soccer Team followed the footsteps of the Seniors, as
far as scoring went, when they defeated Victoria Road, three goals to
two, last Saturday at Heather Park.
Hee Cant, always reliable, showed
up extremely well, when he went past
the opposition for our three goals.
Curtis, too, was a source of constant
danger to the South Vancouverites,
and broke up many rushes that might
have resulted in tallies against us.
The Third Division Team has now
five points to its credit, and should
it keep up last week's performance,
will make its presence felt in the
third division.

Saturday, November 18, will be the
occasion of one of the greatest rugby
battles ever played on the coast, when
the Varsity McKechnie Cup team
plays against the crack Vancouver
"Rep" squad. Both teams are playing brilliant rugby and are nearing
the pink of condition. The Varsity
men, led by the redoubtable Gee, are
under extensive training and will be
at their best on November 18. This
game is the first game of the McKechnie series and is arousing much
talk among all rugby enthusiasts. It
is a crucial game and the winning
team will be a strong favorite in the
final dash for honors. Remember the
"18th" and be at Brockton Point.

A college paper is supposed to be
omniscient. We recognize the fact,
and try to support the dignity. But
there is some slight difficulty in so
doing, when the student body, by its
apathy, denies any point of contact
with the paper.
For over a month the "Ubyssey"
has been flashing forth some ten thousand words a week in the direction of
the student body, and there has resulted scarcely a single indication of
a message received. For the staff, the
experience is proving about as inspiriting as calling after unresponsive
footfalls in a fog.
Such a policy of neglect on the part
of the student body can redound only
on itself. There must be room for improvement in the "Ubyssey"; who will
not admit that? And if the student
body, through passivity amounting almost to denial, refuses to take any
part in such improvement, it can hardly expect the staff to weekly cry "Excelsior-"
What is the value of the "Ubyssey"
to the student body? It is published
at the expense of the students. Where
funds are limited, the advantages accruing from all expenditure must be
shrewdly weighed. And there is another aspect' to the question—the labor Involved, in publication. It is a
point of pride-with most workmen to
conceal their efforts, and allow the
product to win recognition from the
discerning eye. Only the belief that
the "Ubyssey" is of real use to the
University could justify thirty-five students in spending so much of their
time upon it.
In the face of the present indifference is this belief tenable? It is our
prayer that we -be allowed to keep
this one illusion—to which end it is
necessary that the student body
should wake to a decided personal interest in the "Ubyssey," and send
along criticism, suggestions, and,
above all, original contributions.
•    •    »
It was inevitable that the stress of
Campaign Week should direct student energies to other than academic
pursuits. The campaign revealed in
astonishing measure the latent energy and enthusiasm of the student
body. Though times of such intense
enthusiasm are generally followed by
periods or inertia, it is to be hoped
that recent events have not vitiated
our capacity for sustained effort. We
are now placed in the paradoxical
position of being under the necessity
of disproving one of our own campaign arguments by maintaining, despite our increasing handicaps, the
academic standard hitherto attained.
Nevertheless, now that we have reason to believe that our objective has
been reached, we feel justified in turning once again to "the trivial round,
the common task."
•    •    •
The week-end visit of President Ab
Richards and the other members of
the Campaign Committee to Victoria
to meet the Premier and Executive
Council, is the culmination of the
campaign waged with such vigour by
the student body. The delegation has
been described by the Vancouver daily
papers as one of the strongest that
has ever appeared before the Legislature, strong not in numbers but by
virtue of the weight of public sentiment which it has behind it.
The student delegates have had an
opportunity to present the case for a
new University to the men who have
the power to order its establishment.
They have evidently obtained a sympathetic hearing at Victoria, and as
the "Ubyssey" goes to press we are
informed that the Government has at
last been persuaded that a new home
for the much-neglected University is
an absolute necessity. The Premier
and his cabinet appear to have decided, wisely we should say, that the
trend of popular feeling in favour of
the University project is no longer to
be disregarded.

The triangular debate programme
which had been arranged between
California, Washington and the U. B.
C. has been cancelled. The University
of Washington cannot see its way
clear to send a team up here this

Strange as it may seem, the new
members of the Players' Club, who
have not managed to secure even parts
as understudies are quite looking forward to their work on the various
committees. Only occasionally do
they repent their audacity in having
attempted the first try-out. At other
times they content themselves with
the thought that old members must
first be new members, who must, of
necessity begin in obscurity.
It is said that almost all those
whose membership ends with the year,

ordeal of preliminary tryouts.

Dear Sir:
The Women's Literary Society wish to
protest against the practice in our University of students entering the kitchen and stealing the refreshments.
This is common among both men and
women ard is to our mind most despicable.
R.  A.  McW,
Secty. W. L. S.
Editor  "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
I noticed a communication in the
"Ubyssey" for November 2nd, dealing
with the question of Arts '26 class fees,
and would like to draw your attention,
and that of your readers, to one or two
mistakes which were made by the writer.
She was of the opinion that the men
of Arts '26 had no "say" in settling
their class fees. This was t.ot the case.
A meeting was held by them some time
;igo at which it was moved, seconded
itud  carried  that  their  class  fees be  $2.
1 believe she was right in sts tine that
the women of Arts '26, well not consulted in choosing their class fees, but I am
lefl to understand that their executive

by the men, as the men's fees are 35c
more than the women's to pay for the

Very sincerely yours,
Editor   Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
On behalf of my class I should like
to express public Arts '24's appreciation of the work done by several of our
members in the Student Campaign.
It is a matter of common knowledge
how much the success achieved in last's
week's campaign was due to the organizing ability and unselfish efforts of
Mr. J. Grant, Campaign Manager, and
Mr. A. Buchanan. Marshal, ably assisted by Mr   J. Lundie.  Arts Marshal.
Every student in the University is
grateful to these men for their splendid
A. L. WHEELER. Pres.
Editor  of  "Ubyssey."
Dear  Sir:
Everyone in the University doubtless
saw the letter entitled "Extravagance"
which appeared in this column of our
paper last week. We of the executive
realize that the "fair freshette" who
panned the above note was not well acquainted with the facts of the case.
However, we should first like to remind
Arts '26 that it would be a delicate attention on their part for anyone with a
complaint to bring it directly to a member of the committee, and not to broadcast it in the "Ubyssey," by giving us
"a  square  deal."
We all feel that the letter was perfectly justified in a certain sense of the
word. To one who does not understand
the circumstances the fees are too high.
(Just a minute now, don't say: "I told
you so"). First, we are charging everyone   50   cents   for   your   class   pin—pos
sibly less—instead of a. probable $1.26.
Second, we are going to have a class
party, as you all know, but we are not,1
going to have anyone bring sandwiches
and cake. A larger class than in previous
years means we may have to hire a hall
to accommodate everyone, all expenses
will be paid out of the class funds.
Third, a hike will cost about $1.35 when
a hall and music has been provided for
a dance afterwards. Then, fourth, an
innovation which we expect everyone to
enjoy, we hope to be able to have a
theatre party at the Capitol some night.
Fifth, $50 goes to the Campaign. Sixth,
$50 is used for the Arts' men's smoker.
Where has the $787.00 gone? The fees
are not too high. And what's more, to
elect an executive and not to stand by
them reflects on the spirit of '26 as a
Yours sincerely,
A.  K.   (Sec.)
It is with deep regret that the
"Ubyssey" announces two resignations from the Editorial Board, to take
effect this week. Miss Sallee Murphy
has been obliged, owing to eye-strain,
to resign the Feature Editorship, a
position which she has filled most
successfully since the first of the year.
The second resignation—that of Mr.
G. B. Riddehough as Associate Editor,
i-5 another severe loss which the
Ubyssey is called upon to weather at
this time. Mr. Riddehough is carrying a very heavy course, and found
it impossible to cope with all his numerous and  exacting  duties.
It is gratifying to know that the
arduous work connected with these
offices have not prevented their being
filled. Mr. Sperry Philips has consented to succeed Miss Murphy as
Feature Editor, and Mr. Cecil Upshall,
for two years connected with, the
"Ubyssey" las Circulation Manager,
has accepted the Associate Editorship
left vacant by Mr. Riddehough's resignation.
The "Ubyssey" extends a hearty
welcome to the new members of its
Editorial  Board.

The Cabin of the Outdoors Club,
which for the past three years has
served as headquarters for the U. B.
C. Mountaineers on their hikes from
Grouse Mountain was burnt to a cinder sometime last week. Not only
did the fire demolish the work of
three summers but also completely
destroyed blankets, cooking utensils
and other odds and ends which had
been left for the use of members on
week end trips. A large pile of wood,
cut £.nd piled by some of the men
two weeks ago in preparation for the
winter, was also destroyed. About
all that was left were the two kitchen
stoves. These will be packed out by
the members of the Club next week
The loss of the cabin is a severe
blow to the Outdoors Club particularly as it will now be impossible to
make some trips which had been planned. The fact that Grouse Mountain has also had its first dusting of
snow precludes the possibility of any
work being done on a new structure
this season.
The disconcerting discovery that
the cabin no longer existed was made
by E. G. Gibson on Saturday night,
when he arrived in the cool or the
evening after a quick trip from town.
Its disappearance made it necessary
for him to roll up under the stars
where he spent the night. On Sunday morning he was joined by about
a dozen members of the club who assisted him in collecting the few articles which had survived the flames.
The cabin was only completed this
season and represented the work of
about three summers. Two weeks ago
the finishing touches were put on the
structure and several tables and chairs
constructed. A woodshed was also
added and had been well filled in anticipation of an active season in the
The fire marks the crowning mishap in the fortunes of the cabin. Some
time ago a small gramaphone was
stolen and several other small articles. Whether the fire resulted from
the carlessness of some weekly visitor
or was started by some malicious person is unknown by the executive of
the Club who state that, whatever the
cause, they are certain that no University student is responsible.

Hallowe'en decorations lent a gay
appearance to the Auditorium on the
occasion of Arts '24 class party, held
on Friday. Bright streamers of orange
and black were suspended from the
ceiling, and the walls were covered
with paper pumpkins and black cats.
A glowing artificial log-fire and a
background of fir trees made a cosy
nook for the patronesses, and added
an autumn touch to the setting.
Refreshments were served in Room
Z from an artistically decorated table
centred with large ferns and chrysanthemums.
During the evening paper hats,
whistles and balloons were distributed to the dancers.
Dimmed lights and tasteful decorations transformed the Men's Common Room into a haunt for the non-
dancers, where they indulged in games
and ghost stories.

to a close with hearty "skyrockets"
for the president, vice-president and

At the invitation of the Wesley
Ladies Association, the Musical Society gave a Varsity night on Saturday, at the Made-in-Canada Fair. Half
the proceeds of the evening was contributed to the Campaign Fund.
A Minstrel Quartette, consisting of
Messrs. Berry, Stewart, Harkness and
Barton was the feature of the evening. With blackened faces and attired in the usual minstrel garb they
sang Kentucky Babe to the delight of
the audience. Their Campaign Song,
composed for the occasion was a very
fitting sequel to Mr. Wilfred Kelly's
splendid campaign speech.
Miss Kerr sang charmingly as usual,
and Miss Lyness' solo also pleased
the audience. Miss Florence and Mr.
Gerald Kerr played a very spirited
piano duet, while Messrs. Morden,
Daughlnee and Etter gave an instrumental selection.
The Minstrel Quartette sang "Dixie
Kid," another quaint plantation song
while the program closed with the
ladies' trio, the Misses Tennant,
Myers and Cassidy.
On Tuesday night there was a conference of the powers for the settlement of the Near East Question. The
subject promoted some very interesting, and, at times, heated discussion.
Mr. H. B. Cantelon, British delegate, gave a long account of past
events in connection with the Near
East. He condemned the policy of
On behalf of Turkey, Mr. I. Shaeffer
demanded Constantinople, which, he
declared, was its rightful possession.
He accused Greece of being the tool
of England. Greece (Mr. G. B. Hislop)
told of the part she had played in
past events in the Near East, and
stressed the fact of her being deserted by her allies in her time of need.
Mr. A. E. Graver claimed that
France's attitude had prevented a terrible war. He in turn condemned the
power-grabbing policy of England.
The Russian delegate, Mr. E. Dunne
supported Turkey whole-heatedly
in her demands, and condemned
all other nations in true Bolshevik
style. He mentioned the secret treaty,
probably in an attempt to impress the
other delegates.
On behalf of Italy, Mr. S. Martin
then stated that she had not received
after the war, the territory which had
been promised her by the other allies.
After a general discussion, Mr. C.
W. Hodgson, French delegate made
a motion that the conference go on
record as being in favour of the
scheme of international control of
Constantinople as outlined in the
Treaty of Sevres. Considerable discussion ensued, but finally the motion
was passed, the Turkish and Russian
delegates alone opposing it.

Rev. F. W. Patterson, D.D., Presidentelect of Acadia University, had , the

account of sickness. Mr. C. W. Hodgson dealt with the foreign relations
of the German state, stressing the
economic considerations, and the
probability of a Russo German alliance in the near future.
After the papers were read, Prof.
H. F. Angus gave some very interesting side-lights on the temper of the
German people, and answered numerous questions. Prof. Angus spent
part of the summer in Germany.
A delightful interlude between the
reading of the papers was provided by

Are there any of you fellows acquainted with Royalty? Ever meet

or anything like that? If you haven't
how would you like to get acquainted
with some of them? The Chess Club
will do its best to give you a "knockdown" to some of these notables.
The Chess Club is becoming one of
the liveliest clubs in the University.
At present it has some twenty members, and mathemeticians have calculated that it is growing at the rate
of seventy-two members a session.
Even the faculty are displaying an interest in the game; just drop into one
of the tournaments some evening and
see the profs, matching their wits
against the students'.
There is some promising talent in
the Varsity Chess Club, and arrangements are being made to have a series
Of games with the different clubs in
the city; there are also hopes of challenging players from different parts
of the province. The playing, however, is not all in the hands of the
old players, a beginners class has been
formed which will give the new players a chance to learn.
It is the opinion of some people
that if Chess continues to grow in
popularity, Rugby will have to step
down from its high place. Instead of
a football game at Brockton Point,
there will be a table placed in the
middle of the field with a couple of
players seated at it. The kings,
queens, etc., will be ranged before
them and the enthusiastic rooters will
be packed in the grand-stand with
field-glasses handy. When a knight
goes to jump over a king, the excited
crowds will rise to their feet and our
yell-king will shout "All right gang,
let's give them Tackle 'em Low."
The Senior Class elected Mr. Claude
Campbell to the presidency. The vacancy in the executive was caused by
the resignation of Mr. Harold Offord,
who is withdrawing from college on
account of his health.
Mr. Campbell, the new president,
was formerly the athletic representative of the class, and is also the secretary of the Men's Athletic Association.
Mr. Allan Hunter was the choice of
the class  for athletic representative.

Coming Out
of Church
It was last Sunday, coming
out of a Presbyterian church,
where right thinking people
are usually found... Mr. S'.,
gripping his friend by the
arm, said: "Fred, I like
your Overcoat" (and sure
enough he looked fine in it).
"Yes," he replied, "it's a
good one — I got it at
Bruce's.'* He didn't say
what it cost him, for of
course this wouldn't be proper talk for a Sunday, anyway, would it?
It doesn't matter where you
go, especially in good society, you'll meet men who talk
about Bruce. But is it any
wonder ?
