HEBRIDES MUSIC IS
LECTURE SUBJECT
The second muslo leoture under the
auspices ot the Musical Sooiety waa
liven by Miss Sassln ea Friday after*
■eea, Hor subject was "Polk Music
tn the Hebrides."
In commencing Miss Bassln explain*
ed that tho Hebrides Islands are one
ot tho tow plaoes whore folk songs
still eslst. One ot tho reasons for
tho preservation of those songs is
tho position of the Islands, separated
trom the west ooast of Bootland by a
dangerous strait. Miss Bassln then
went on to say that folk songs are
the songs that are popular among tho
common people, and itave grown out
of experience, untouched by modern
Influences. Many collections ot those
Hebredlan folk songs have been made.
The flrst of those appeared ln 1704,
and Was published by Reverend Mo*
Donald. Others who have contributed collections are Miss Francos tolmie
of Skye, Miss Annie Johnson of Varra
and Miss Murray. In 1908 one of the
best collections was published by Mrs.
Henry Fraser; since then she has
edited three more volumes.
As a background for her leoture
Mlsa Bassln described modern life In
tbe Hebrides, which Is much like the
life in Scotland two hundred years
ago. The houses are long and one-
storied with rounded ends; the walls
are of thiok stone, and the roots
thatched, In the oldest type of house
the hearth is situated in the middle
of the room; and ln the long winter
evenings the people sit around the
Are talking, and telling old-time
Stories and legends. Many of the in*
habitants are superstitious and have
great belief in these old legends and
fairy tales.
Another reason Miss Bassln gave
for the preservation of folk songs was
that a great deal of the work in the
Hebrides Is still done by hand. Churn*
ing and weaving are both carried on
by hand processes, and the people
naturally break Into song while at
work. One of the most Interesting
processes is that of "waulking,"
shrinking of homespun. Miss Bassln
described this work, and then illustrated the kind of music sung at this
affair, by singing ln the native language of the Hebredlans. In this type
Of song one woman usually takes a
solo part, while the rest of the workers Join in on the refrain. Miss Bassln
then sang a reaper's song, In which the
action of the reaping-hook was imitated.

Senior Class will
Play a£'Whoja"
"Too many cooks spoil the broth"
is a proverb that applies appropriately to class draws, and accordingly,
when the lofty Seniors play the gentle game of "Whoja" on Thursday the
cooks will be entirely absent.
This, alas, is probably the last
"Whoja" Innovation ln which their
Twenty-elghters will participate, and
the pleasant thrills of anticipation
will be modified by the sad truth that
the Senior Ball Is the biggest, best,
but last of Arts '28's series of successful olass parties.
As facts must be raced, even by
Seniors, it is necessary to Bay that
only those students who have paid
their class tees will be permitted to
enter the draw. The Seniors are given until Wednesday noon to part with
their hard-earned shekels and ducats
to the grasping hands or the class
sub-treasurers. Even Scotsmen ate
not exempt.
In addition, those shrinking violets
and hardened cynics who have paid
their tees but do not wish to enter
the speculation, are given tho same
erlod of time to make up their minds
demand, courageously, that their
names be withdrawn. It is against
the Ideals of this University, so vail
antly upheld In the past, that unwilling students should be conscripted into a class draw.
Student Insurance companies are
now open to business and will safeguard their clients against, all risks,
In short, the Senior Class draw will
be held on Thursday, February 23, In
Ap. Sc. 100, commencing at 12 noon.

Maritime Debaters Arrive
Early on Monday morning tbe Do*
bates Manager succeeded in leading a
small group of Varsity's most ardent
debate tans to the platform of the
O.PR. station in order to extend a
hearty welcome to the Maritime debaters, who conclude their long tour
of the Dominion by their arrival in
Vancouver this week. After a huge
breakfast the little company then pro*
ceeded through tho fog to the University itself where the visitors were
shown over the various buildings and
Initiated Into the mysteries of the revolving doors and elevator ln the Library. At luncheon the debaters were
entertained at the Canadian Club in
the Oval Room of the Hotel Vancouver, and Mr. Paul of Acadia convinced his large audience that thu
reputation of the debating team is
certainly well founded by his speech
on "A National Ideal for Canada"
which was enthusiastically received
by tho large group of. business men
who had assembled to hear him.
Immediately after this luncheon the
visitors were taken for a tour of the
city that was necessarily very brief
inasmuch as it was necessary to return to the Hotel Vancouver at -t:80
where Mr. Hazen Fulton of New
Brunswick addressed some 700 members ot the Womens Canadian Club.
Atter a tea in the Lower Dining Hall
the men were taken to various homes
tor dinner and ln the evening attended
the Science Ball, where for a brief
time they forgot the cares and
troubles of a prolonged and arduous
tour.
To-day the debaters are in Victoria
and will remain there till to-morrow
afternoon when they return to Vancouver, reaching here about 7:00 p.m.,
thus having barely time to have dinner
before the Blggeat Debate of the Year
will be on at 8:SO In the Women's
Building. After the debate there will
be an expedition to Chinatown where
our new friends trom the Hast will
attend a Chinese Theatre for the flr.tt
time, and attempt, subsequently, to
handle » set ot chop-sticks at a banquet heft! In their honor.

ALMA MATER MEETING FROWNS
ON OFFICERS' TRAINING CORPS
Urge Majority Support Whltoley's Resolution at
Fridays Meeting
By a majority of 844 votes a motion protesting against the formation of a
Canadian Officers Training Corps contingent at this University, was oaifiod
at the Alma Mater mootiag oa Friday noon after a hectic two*hour dlsousslon.
Leslie Brown presided la the chair and made several announcements
before opening the meeting to dlsousslon on the question of the O.T.C.
In his announcements the president called attention to the gymnasium
plans as outlined In the "Ubyssey," whioh showed the groat difficulties Council
had to contend with in their work for a gymnasium. Ho reminded the students ot tho requirements for the coming elections, and gave the dates.
All nominations tor president ot the A.M.8. must bo In by March 5th, the
eleotion being on March 18th. All other nominations for Council must be
in by Msrch 18th, the elootions to be held on Maroh 80th.
In calling on the O.T.O. discussion,
Leslie Brown, made it clear that la
his opinion, the decision ot the melt*
ing would in no way constitute a motion of censure on the Students Council for sancatlonlng the O.T.C.
Whlteltye Bpseoh
Albert Whlteley, the leader for the
motion against the O.T.C., opened the
discussion. He appealed eloquently
to the Ideals of the audience as university students in a democratic
country, and showed how the C.O.T.C.
was opposed to these ideals. "This
University was not one to be in*
fluenced by outside pressure."
"Tho O.T.C," he said, "dictates its
policy to the Counoil, the Board ot
Governors, and to the Senate ot the
University." Not only the present
policy must be accepted but the Uni*
verslty would be obliged to accept any
future changes In this policy.
He then pointed out that the O.T.O.
was formed tor the primary object of
making militia officers.
This military training course would
not be governed by student opietotv
Consequently, although as yet entirely
voluntary, lt might become a compul-
sary course, as it almost is ln some
Canadian universities already.
Munn seconded Wbltely's motion.
Yerburgh'e Speech
Richard Yerburgh, In defending the
O.T.C, said that its primary object is
to train citizens. He showed that
International Fraternities and the
S.C.M. are perhaps controlled from
even more outside places than Ottawa,
and it might be argued that they are
as harmful to democracy as Is tbe
O.T.C.
He pointed out that the desire for
an O.T.C. at this University had originated among the students, and tha
governing bodies had authorized and
approved this formation.
"Everyone," he said, "has their own
Ideals, and freedom of Ideals and
actions should bo permissible in a
democratic university."
He told of the benefits the O.T.C.
would bring, both physically and
mentally. Switzerland waB an example
of a nation which had benefited by its
system of military training.
In concluding he said, "We do not
wish to buy our  way  with  a gymnasium, but we feel we can benefit,
the University wtth this gym."
General Dlsousslon
Munn showed that the O.T.C is not
reaching towards ideals of peace. Pre*
paredness for war directs thought
along lines of military action.
Thornber emphasised the benefits of
an O.T.C, and showed that a university Is the logical place tor such a
contingent, for the necessary courses
run concurrently.
Hatfield reminded the audience that
this step was not static. "It ia a gesture one way or the other," he aald,
"and a small step in the right direction helps a lot."
Pllkington said that the O.T.C. men
had their Ideals and liked war less
because they realised what It was, but
ideals must come gradually. He do*
dared that ideals were a matter of
Individual opinion, and that Ideals of
a university should Include liberty In
thought, speech and organisation.
Lane said the O.T.O. had not the
right to form here if It was against
the general desire. He agreed that
Ideals should come gradually, but they
should be gradual In the right direction. History had proved that preparedness was aggressive.
McLean defended the fraternities by
bringing to light, as he said, "What
few students realised." This was the

ARTS MEN HOLD
WILD SMOKEFEST
On Saturday night, at the Irish Fusiliers' Hall, that shocking affair called the Arts' Smoker went over amidst
clouds of smoke to the odor of Old
Chum.
To set the smoker rolling, cornoobs
and tobacco were rationed out at the
beginning or proceedings. Then a
sleight-of-hand expert showed the sophisticated sophomores that they uld
not know everything. For several
minutes he mystified the assembled
mob by tearing paper and restoring
it to Its proper shape and demonstrating card tricks and ventriloquism.
Following this the meeting was formally opened by Professor Logan, who
entertained the boys with two or
three of his inimitable stories, told
only as Professor Logan can tell
them.
In the next act, Arts *81 displayed
much talent tn the art ot music. There
were several songs done to the height
of perfection by the Freshmen's deep
sonorous voices. In one ot these choruses, to the astonishment or the audience, a very beautiful young lady
promenaded across the floor to the
tune of "Oh, Doris."
Following this outburst a very creditable exhibition of boxing was put on
by the "he-men" of that club. In the
llrst bout Hayes and Woodbury displayed their ability as neckers. Woodbury showed much ducking to advantage, especially when the fight grew
warm. In the second bout two veritable Titans, Clltfo and Palmer, showed the advantage of an egg-crate wallop and a hefty fist. The final match
was the best exhibition of skill and
the contestants were very eveniy
matched. According' to 'Pinky" "Stewart, who managed the clinches, all the
fights   were  draws.
Then those members of the audience who could penetrate the fast developing smoke-screen, saw an exhibition of the noblo art of fencing by
Lieut, de Merveux, director of the B.

PEP IN GENERAL
In the last issue some energetic correspondent bewailed the lack ot
"pep" and college spirit on tho campus. His criterion for tho
presence of that elusive quality was interest tn athletics and well-
onjanised pep meetings. We agree with him that the last Pep meeting
waa rather a fiasco (it oould be criticised from moro than one point of
view), But no amount of gonial blah and "rah rah" stuff that is
banded over to the half-asleep mind of the student body will ever
five it pep or real college spirit. If the students have to he pampered
and bribed into attending games and displaying interest in the conduct of student affairs by a lot of fatuous twaddle then the spirit so
aroused is not worth the rousing.
But there are other affairs in whieh that sleeping student body
might show a little intelligent interest. If instead of congregating to
be pampered into a state of artificial enthusiasm at a Pep Meeting,
they would interest themselves in a few of the worthwhile things about
them, they would derive a good deal more enjoyment and advantage
therefrom.
There is the matter of finances for example. How many students
read the treasurer's monthly reportf How many know how the Altmt
Mater fees are being spent ? We think it advisable for students to display a little more interest in this. We suggest also that the Treasurer be
required to publish a detailed report of the Alma Mater Society
funds every month in the "Ubyssey." Not that we would criticize tho
expenditure of the money this year. But it is the tight and duty of
the students to know the financial condition in detail.
Moreover there should be a good many more meetings of the Alma
Mater Sooiety, the Undergraduate Societies and the Athletic Associations. The real "college spirit" displayed at last Friday's meeting is
sufficient proof of the effectiveness of these meetings. It is the duty
Of the students to take a more active intrest in student government,
and it is the duty of their executive officer* to see that they are given
every opportunity to meet and to express their opinion. Instead of
those executives establishing themselves in a position of splendid isolation as many of them have done this year, we suggest that they hold
more meetings and give the students an opportunity to express their
Opinion. The meetings are good for them even if the business is not of
weighty importance.
THE GIDDY WHIRL
A glance at the calendar of forthcoming social events as well
as that of recent weeks, gives one to realize that the social side of
a Universtiy career is being more and more over-emphasized. After
all a university education is the goal for which we, most of us, arc
striving. And yet it is admittedly hard for any human being to devote
himself to the pursuit of this end, to the exclusion of all social diversions. And once drawn into the whirl of hoop hops, track dances,
faculty dances, class parties and so on, it is practically impossible to
practise moderation.
In a few short weeks the conviction that has already been borne
upon many of the students, will be brought home to all of ns; there
are far too many social functions at present officially aanctioned by the
student body.
Of course a certain percentage of the students would not be a
whit better off if all social functions were cancelled. However, for
many the nights which are. lost to study because of the necessity for
preparation as well as the actual dates of the functions, might be far
better utilized. And many of the weaker-willed students would thank
anyone who might enable them to spend at least one or two profitable
evenings in each week.
ORCHESTRA WILL GIVE CONCERT
Lovers of orchestral muslo will
bave tbe opportunity, on March the
2nd and 3rd, of hearing a group ot
well prepared selections which are
to be rendered by the Orchestra of
tbe University of British Columbia
tinder the baton of C. Haydn Williams. The orchestra, which is composed ot more than twenty students,
Is exceedingly well balanced, the
violins and clarinets forming a sweet,
combination, tbe tone of which is
rounded out and strengthened by the
presence of a quartette ot trumpets.
Ot tbe many, musical numbers to be
presented, each a gem in Itself, the
most outstanding Is tbe old favourite,
"Light Cavalry Overture" by Suppe.
wblcb la a spirited and rythmical
piece. Realising that no orchestral
concert would be oomplete without a
march or two, this aggregation la
offering both "Tbe Wee Macgreegor,"
a Highland Patrol, and "Prepared*
ness," a stirring maroh. The "Wee
Macgreegor" Patrol Is in tho nature of
a descriptive selection, and as It is
played, one baa tbe vision ot a Scotch
Band appearing afar off: with well
marked tempo It approaches; one
hears thai: beloved Scottish air, "Annie Laurie," tbe band passes and
eventually Its martial strains are
lost In tbe distance. The other
maroh, "Preparedness," Is no less
pleasing with ita spirited six-eight
tempo. Another favourite is the
"Minuet In 0," composed by Beethoven
which is delightfully and daintily
played by the strings and wood wind.
Very  d*Jocrlptlve  and   very  colorful
Is the novelette, "In a Chinese
Temple Garden," which Is In the
same category as "In a Persian
Market." From the flrst note to the
last the listener Imagines himself to
be transplanted to the mystical East
where he finds himself in a Chinese
tomple garden. The piece openo
with a brilliant fanfare ot muted
trumpets and shortly after that there
can be heard the peaceful and soothing notes of a huge organ,—the
violins and clarinets. The crash of
the cymbals and another trumpet
fanfare rouse the listener trom his
reverie and the selection comes to a
close, leaving htm with the impression
that there Is much activity In the
Chinese Garden.
Besides offering this Interesting and
varied colection of high olaas numbers the Unlveralty Orchestra will be
heard to fine advantage wbllnt accompanying the University Choir of
about sixty voices. The accompaniment for each choral selection has
been written by the conductor In
such a way as to further add to the
harmony and tonal beauty of the
voices.
In rendition ot all the choral numbers the orchestra plays an Important
role, making the ensemble effects
particularly delightful.
Tickets for this Musical Concert,
which is to be given on Friday and
Saturday evening, March Snd and
3rd, can be procured from any member of the Society or at the Kelly
Piano Co. at 667 Granville Street.

Correspondence
The Editor,
The "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
Through your columns may I be permitted to draw the attention of the
student body to a most important
event, not only ln the history of this
University, but also tn the history ot
Intercollegiate relations throughout
Canada T I refer to the debate with
the team that will conclude ita transcontinental tour of the Dominion on
Wednesday evening at the Women's
Building. This debating tour has been
successful, and enthusiastic audiences
have welcomed the celebrated representatives trom New Brunswick,
Acadia, and Dalhousle at both University and non-University centres across
the oontlnenti yet I ahould aot be very
greatly surprised if the debate with
this University which they have been
looking forward to as marking the culmination of the flrst tour under the
auaploes ot the National Federation of
Canadian University Students, should
be but poorly attended by the students.
It might be worthy of note that over
one thousand of the oltisens ot this
olty have already heard these debaters at but two meetings, namely the
luncheon at the Men's Canadian Club
and the tea at the Women's Canadian
Olub, yesterday. Hence lt is apparent
that those having no relation to tbe
University are prepared to welcome
these visitors of ours (T) even tf the
students themselves do not.
This Is but typical of a general state
ot affairs at the University, tor Dr.
Roberts' lectures on Canadian literature are attended by an audlenoe that
Is mostly composed ot the general public from the olty, and a great many of
Varsity's athletic teams (especially Is
this true in the case of Soccer) are
applauded by sportsmen who have
never seen the Inside ot University
buildings.
Such a sorry (or would "laughable''
be a better word) state of affairs is
not to be merely, "deplored" as so
many ardent correspondents point out,
but should be very thoroughly relieved.
The most Important Canadian Inter-
colleglate debate for a great many
years will be that of to-morrow night.
Surely, if not to encourage Messrs.
Telford and Murphy of our own Institution, and if not to welcome these
famous men from the opposite extreme of the Dominion, the very serious obligation of maintaining the dig*
nlty of our University before the people
of Vancouver, demands that the students should attend In large numbers
at this momentous occasion and thus
eliminate the danger of the majority
of the audience being from the general
public.
Yours truly,

Dear Madam:
May I through your correspondence
column draw the attention of fellow
students to sonic facts which the
Publications Hoard have refused to
print In ilie regular news of the
"I'byssey?"
I refer lo the noon hour address
gheii last Tuesday by Dr. T. T.
Shields. I reported this meeting and
placed the report on your desk. The
write-up as you no doubt know was
fairly short and I fully expected to
see lt in Friday's issue. I am not
writing the complaint because of disappointment at not seeing my report
in print but merely in the interests of
Justice.
May I inform you that hefore asking
Dr. Shields to speak here, Dr. Klinck
was consulted and the President of
the Alma Mater Society was informed
of hla coming, also application was
made for room Arts 100. There wob
an attendance of about one hundred
and fifty at the meeting and still you
did not deem the fact worth printing
even when the report was written and
submitted.
This, however, is not the first time
such a report has been refused publication, for several weeks ago I reported the noon hour address of a
Cambridge mun. Rev. Norman Grubb,
now a missionary. This report was
sent In the mail to you personally,
Madam, but has no doubt found a
place In the W. P. B,
Kvlriontly there is some prejudice In
your officii against printing these reports and I said nothing the first tlmo,
On thu second occasion, however, I
thought, that the lack of countoay to
to the visitor was too great to be
overlooked. I'I seme remember that
both men were In our University for
Hie first time, one a Cambridge man,
the other, Dr. Shields, one of the best
known men In American Church
Circles, and President of Des Moines
University, I hope that you would
not expect, such lack of respect to be
shown to any of our prominent Grads.
or to our President by the Student
Publication of any other college.
Ever envied another fer his er her ability te keep te "the books"
when you felt toe tired yourself?   Your lack of energy may be

High School." Major King reviewed
the histories of the various school
systems, tracing the growth of the
"Junior High" system in Canada. He
pointed out how the new system
satisfied a long required need and
how It was based upon lines evolved

The regular meeting of the Studio
Club wan held on Thursday, February
16, at the home of Dean and Mrs.
Coleman.
Mr. John Ridington gave a most interesting paper on "Music from tlie
Point of View of the Listener." Drawing freely on his experience, as a
music and dramatic critic, Mr. Ridington threw much light on the relation
of music to the other arts, and vigorously maintained his thesis that music
carries a purely emotional message to
the listener.
A number of musical Items completed the evening's programme.
May I suggest that even at this late
date the report of Dr. Shields meeting
be printed, not necessarily as I wrote
it, hut In some way as to at least mention the man's name.
Yours truly,
E. F. Cameron.

Japan Subject
of Dean's Talk
Before a large and an enthusiastic
audience at the Vancouver Institute
on Friday night Dean Brock gave an
Interesting and instructing talk upon
Japan. The Dean flrst explained
that he would confine his discussion
of Japan to the qualities inherent in
the people ot that country, whioh
had brought them to the standings of
a flrst olass power. The total area
ot the islands of Japan Is one-halt the
area of British Columbia, and aupport
a population of sixty million people,
plus an additional eighteen million
living In Korea. The speaker remarked that only one-sixth ot the
land waa possible ot cultivation, and
that at the present time the population had reached the saturation
point.
Turning to the history of Japan
the speaker atated that the country
emerged about the same time -<*»
Rome. The Japanese were originally
eaat Asians but rapidly developed
distinct national characteristics. The
government was flrat a centralised
system. In 1198 a dual government
was set up, resulting In civil war for
some time. Peace was Anally established with the Mikado as the
supreme fountain ot authority and
spiritual leader of the people. The
oivil government, however, was in
reality controlled by the Shogun.
Later the country was unsuccessful*
ly invaded by Kubla Khan, while
Japan was successful ia acquiring
Korea. The islands were flrst discovered by the Portugese in the sixteenth century. In 1549 St. Francis
Xavier went there to christianise the
natives. This brought an Influx of
various religious sects, and when
Europe was torn by their conflicts
they reaoted ln Japan. The Japanese
insisted on toleration and since this
proved fruitless, they expelled the
foreigners. As a result Europeans
refused to trade and Japan became
isolated by 1641,
At this time the islands were
ruled by the Shogun and a class of
aristocratic soldiers. It was a primarily agricultural state. The pursuit of
money was despised and merchants
were regarded as parasites. later
they grew more powerful and aided
the renaissance in literature and art
by their   patronage.
In 1854 Commodore Perry secured a treaty of friendship with
Japan and ln 1868 a commercial
treaty was signed. The treaties had
been made at the command of the
Shogun, and the Mikado led a popular uprising against this breach of
its policy of self-seclusion. However,
foreign battleships soon convinced the
people of the error of their ways. In
1808 the Shogun was overthrown and
the Mikado restored to full powers.
Dean Brock then described the
character of the people. He showed
their profound love for nature, making them appreciate cleanliness and
daintiness. Shtntotsm, the national
religion, teaches the people the love
of simplicity, of peacefulnoas, and or
harmony.
MATHEMATICS CLUB
At the last meeting of the Mathematics Club, held at the home of Mlas
Ileth Pollock, Mr. It. M. Petrle, Arts
'28 spoke on "Spectroscopic lllnarles."
Mr. Petrle explained that these double
stars were called Spectroscopic Binaries by reaaon of the fact that they
are not distinguishable as double by
the naked eye, or by means of a telescope, but. by observation of the spectrum.
He went on to show the methods of
determining the radial velocity and
the orbits of these stars, giving Illustrations from his own work on the
subject.
CHEMISTRY SOCIETY
At a meeting of the B. C. Branch
of the Canadlau Chemical Associate* eld last Tuesday evening at the
University Club, the U. B. C. was well
represented by the Chemistry Sooiety.
Following the monthly dinner of the
Association, seven IT. B. C. students
spoke on "Tlie Chemical Aspects of
Automobile Manufacture."
A meeting of the Society will be
held on Wednesday, February 22, In
Sc, Room 300, at 3 p.m., at which Dr.
M. J. Marshall will Kp«ak on "Distillation In the Laboratory." All students are welcome to this meeting.
LALOUETTE
" ie regular meeting of "I/Alouetlo"
was held Thursday, February 18th,
at the homo ot Mr. 80s tad. Mme.
Oeoi'Ke Roving was the guest or honor.
Mr. HoHtHil sang a solo entitled "Hal
chei Iloule!" Mr. Poole road a selection from his thesis on Montaigne's
"RhhiiIm." Miss Garnmle read "Le
Petit. Chaperon Rouge." Miss Haddock and Mr. Beattte presented a
short play "Lul et Bile." Miss Berry
presided at the piano. Games and
songs concluded the programme.
Ridington Elected
Bookworms' Prexy
It IS with pleasure that the University of British Columbia learns ot the
recent honor bestowed upon Mr. John
Ridington, librarian of the University
library. Mr. Ridington has been appointed president ot the newly-formed
Canadian section of the American Library Association. This new body was
temporarily organised at the 1817 A.
L.A. meeting, held at Toronto.
In an Interview Mr. J. Ridington,
U.B.C. Librarian, pointed out that
leaders of the new movement were
probably unanimous In their decision
that no attempt be made of organising a rival for the A.L.A. Rather. It
was hoped the Canadian Association
would funotlon aa a branch ot the
Amerloan body. Under such an
arrangement, the American Association would deal with all library mat*
tors of a general nature, whereas the
Canadian Association would take as
Us own sphere ot activity those
special problems essentially Canadian.
In abort, the focal point of the Canadian Library Aasociatlon Is to be Canadian matters. The existence of a
properly functioning Oanadian body
should not only further what co-operation already exists between libraries
of the United States. Britain, and
Canada, but should alao promote a
close relationship between libraries of
the Dominion—-a ueed, the importance
of which cannot be overemphasised.
Students are Invited

Club, has extended a cordial invitation to ALL University students to
attend an exhibition In fencing to be
given at the British Columbia Sword
Club's gymnasium on Tuesday, February 28.
This exhibition will stress the various tricks In fencing, including the
spectacular "disarm," in which the

Science Wins Hard Battles
For the last few days the Science-
men have being having a little war of
their own. The fumes of battle have
cleared away slightly and our horrified
war correspondent has been able to
observe some or the results.
The Sclencemen have been victorious but at a heavy cost. They have
defeated the enemy In pitched battle
and except for a few Isolated survivors hidden in dugouts, the opposing (forces have been exterminated.
During the height of the struggle
an impassable harrier was placed
around tho Applied Science Building
to pen In the enemy.
The Scientists lost three men killed
and have many poisoned. The casualties for the enenfy are 3,176,463*4
lend cockroaches Most of the Science
casualties were caused by mistakes
In Identity on the part of their comrades,
It has not been divulged what poison
was used by the red-shirted outfit but
a prominent militarist states that lt
was supplied by the Cafeteria in exchange for the carcasses of the slain.
CHESS EXPERT
TO PLAY HERE
Next Thursday will be gala day for
the University chess players, when
two very interesting events will break
in upon the deadly monotony of ordinary student lite. At 3 o'clock, In the
Cafeteria, Mr. Millar of the Vancouver
Chess Club, who is one of the city's
most brilliant players, will give a simultaneous exhibition of play against
seven or eight of the best that the
University haa to offer, and has also
agreed to defend his reputation
against any obstreperous onlooker who
may be Impelled to challenge him.
At 8 o'clock, however, a long await*
ed opportunity will be offered to certain of Varsity's Chess stars to avenge
grievances that have been carefully
nuraed for many months agalnat certain members of the faoulty. A matoh
has been arranged between tbe stu*
dents and these members ot the faculty to be played at the Union College
and should be the scono ot a very keen
and exciting struggle, tor members ot
the Olub have become rather sensitive
as regards their reputation and have
finally decided to "call the bluff" ot
certain membera of the auatere faculty who have been heard to cast certain supercilious and derogatory remarks against the "alleged" ability
of the Cluba players,
Mr. Rod. Pllkington, who will lead
Varsity's forces Into the fray, has
finally deolded to rally around him In
this doughty battle, Messrs. J. Plant,
Denis Carstairs, add Orevllle Rowland,
who lt is believed have ample reason for entering into the spirit of this
battle agaiust the professors, Harold
Blshoff will step Into the gap, If necessary.
It has been reported, trom very reliable sources, that confusion reigns
in the camp of the M.A.'a and Ph. D.'s,
and that very flurried and perturbed
meetings have not as yet decided on
the team to bear the faculty's colors.
Meanwhile grim and determined practices are being held ln the Men's
Common Room that are calculated to
effect the downfall ot the team to be
finally agreed upon.

RUGGERS TRAIN FOR
WARATAH GAME
Latest dope from tho camp ot the
Waratahs is to the affect that the
Austraian boys will arrive ln this fair
city on Thursday or Friday and will be
ell set to clash against Vancouver
on Saturday. On Wednesday following, Varsity will be all ready to play
the game ot their lives, and follow*
Ing the last dash with the Rep, are
more determined than ever to put up
a better showing against the winners
than the aggregation.
The Blue and Gold fixture will, no
doubt, be a more stubbornly (ought
oontest than the first tussle since the
Waratahs will have had the stiffness
due to thslr long trip taken out of
their legs.
At the present time the Waratahs
are travelling across the Dominion
on the last lap of their long Journey.
Speolal student prices have been
arranged tor the Waretah fane and
the rah rah boys and girls wtll   be
Srlvileged to purchase tickets at
fty cents. Otherwise tbe regular
eost of admission is one dollar. It Is
to be hoped that arrangements con
be made to oaaoel the afternoon lectures In order that the atudent body
may be able to go en masse to witness one of the most outstanding
events ln U.B.O, athletio life and to
gee two powerful football squads In
aotlon. ,   ,
It is not often that an Institution
of this calibre has the opportunity to
throw open its doors tor the entertainment of such internationally
known figures as the Waratahs,
The New South Wales aggregation
Is   the   sixth    International    team
Sroduced by the Antipodes including
laorls, New Zealanders and Australians. They are placed on a par with
the famous New Zealand All Blacks
Of 1806 which won 82 games out of
80.
VARSITY WORKS OUT
A decided Interest has been taken
In the coming fixture. In keeping
with good practise the first string
line-up went through a stiff workout
Saturday afternoon. Jlmmie Sinclair
has again donned the cleats and was
seen strutting his stuff in good style.
Bill Locke Is reported ln the best of
shape and shows no evidence of
lack ot training. In the last line ot
defense Oord Logan and "Spike" Mclnnls showed exceptional ability ln
the punts. Varsity has never before
been so fortunate in having two
foil-backs, ot such equal ability, both
ready to do battle at a moments notice. The season this year has been
exceptionally long, and the tenacious
perseverance whioh the ruggers show
in continuing to turn-out for long
workouts Is most praiseworthy. The
three-quarter line Is endeavoring to
cover up many week spots. Poor
passing can only be rectified by continual practise and the everlasting
runs which the threes are always doing will produce good results.
Baton is always ln the pink ot
condition and makes it his business
to put the best of it into every fray.
Bert Tupper is still suffering trom
a sore ankle but latest medical attendance reports a big improvement
and advices that sufficient progress
towards recovery will have been
made ln another few days to again
enable this football fiend to do his
stuff.
Phil Barratt has quite recovered
from a sore back, sustained several
weeks ago, and will vie with Estabrook for the position of flve-elgths.
Gunboat Sparks has improved his
stability and will try to maintain a
good stance in the scrums.
The two bruisers, Noble and Wilson, are not getting any thinner, this
may be due to hard workouts. There
should be a big co-operative movement most apparent in the approaching event of the year.
Hebrides Music is
Subject of Lecture
(Continued from page 1)
As an Illustration of the sad music
Inspired by the stormy weather on
the coasts of the Islands, Miss Bassln
sang a song entitled "The Seagull."
She then went on to talk about another type of song, called "mouth
music." These songs are Jolly and
nre often sung to accompany dancing.
As an example of how words change
In the course or years, Miss Bassln
said that Burns' " a man's a man for
a' that" was played In the Hebrides
as a gay quadrille, called "Lady Mcintosh's Reel," The nurs«ry song,
"Over the Hills and Far Away," was
adopted trom the Gaelic Miss Bassln mentioned that there were many
pretty lulluhles still In existence In
the Hebrides. One of the* she explained In the story or the "Fairy
Flag." In cloning Miss Hassln sang
"McCrlmmln'H Lament," and a Hen-
red Ian Love Bong.

STUDENTS' PARLIAMENT
Wednesday, Arts 100, 3 p.m.
Senior Basketers
Defeat Spaldings
In a slow, rather listless game
Varsity ended a highly successful
season by easily beating the fast
Spaldings team with a 84-16 tally.
The Issue was never In doubt at any
time, Varsity maintaining a substantial lead from start to finish.
As Westminster Y walked all over
the Rowing Club, Varsity Is now in
a tie tor flrst plaoe with the Huskies.
They will meet In a sudden-death
game at the Horse Show Building,
Hastings Park, on Wednesday night
to decide whioh team will receive the
bye In the league playoffs.
The league has adopted the American playoff plan this year lu order
to obviate any suggestion of unfairness, The second and third place
teams meet to decide the opponent
for the league leaders. All games
will be played oa a neutral floor so
that teams, like the Adanacs and
Huskies, may not have the advantage
of familiar surroundings,
Varsity Is conceded a very good
chance to dean up the series. Their
speed, combination and tricky ball
handling cannot be surpassed In the
province.
Wally Mayers and Tanny Butler
are perhaps the two outstanding men.
The former is the best forward and
the latter tho steadiest guard around
this neck ot the woods. Ted Mc*
Ewen and Hugh Grant Improve with
every game, Paulson, Henderson and
Robinson are dependable, brainy
players while McDonald and Straight
at relief guard can always put up a
good show. Jaok Pentland Is keeping the boys down to a strict train*
ing regime with the result that they
form the fittest squad In the circuit.
Saturday night's game was scarcely
a workout tor Varsity. Hugh Grant,
who Is beginning to regain his last
year's style, ran wild, snaring 14
points. Hugh notched them from
any and every angle, some of his
shots being most sensational. Wally
Mayers played a good game but was
way oft ln his shooting. Tanny
Butler and Henderson showed up well
defensively as tbe score indloates and
also managed to seoure the odd point.
Ted MoBwen played a whole of a
game. This boy Improves steadily
but is slightly inclined to play too
strenuously, being sent off eariy on
personals, Paulson, Robinson and
Straight broke Into the game for a
change to give the regulars a rost
and showed all their early season
style. Straight, the big Canadian
Rugby star, Is a comer at guard.
Spaldings best men were Don McKenzie and his brother Art.
Alma Mater Meeting
(Continued from Page 1)
fact that in the written constitution
of   these   organizations   there   is   a
clause saying that they will uphold the
ideals of the student body.
One speaker for the O.T.C. pointed
out that behind arbitration Is force to
back it up. Another asked, "If we
oppose the course ln military science,
why not oppose chemistry? I don't like
it myself."
Another argument against the motion, was that according to the B.N.A.
Act the Provincial Government lias
power to cancel anything detrimental
to this university which may be "put
over" by the Dominion Government.
The speaker challenged his opponents
to point out any concrete ill effects
which the O.T.C. had produced on
other universities of  Canada.
Keenleyside questioned the financial
side of the problem, and asked how
the O.T.C. could guarantee even $760
towards a gymnasium. In answering,
a C.O.T.C. supporter referred to Mr.
Whiteley's favourite C.O.T.C. manual.
A standing vote was taken on the
motion opposing the O.T.C. and thu
results were 676 for, 231 against.
It was decided that copies ot the
resolution should be sent to the
Senate to the Faculty, and to the
Board of Governors. The meeting then
adjourned.
SENIOR MB" GIRLS
WH1PJWHIPPETS
Winning by one basket, the
Women's Senior B Basketeers defeated the Whippets, 12-10 in a, hard-
fought tussle on Saturday night.
The Varsity team lacked two ot
their players, Kay Kldd, captain, and
Zora MoNab, guard.
The Whippets took the lead from
the first, and at the end of the flrst
quarter the count stood 8*1 In their
favour. m ..    ma
During the second quarter, Varsity
failed to score, while their opponents
netted two baskets.
At half-time Dorothy Patterson
left, and Varsity had to move Lois
Tourtellotte, guard, to the position of
forward.
The fortune of the Varaity quintette
then ohanged, aad Lois made the
first basket of the third quarter, giving the team new hope. Thla was
followed by a neat basket by Mary
Campbell. At the end of the third
verse, the soore waa tied 10-10.
The last quarter was by far the
most exiting. Tho guards, Ruth
Herbert and Margaret Richards,
played exceptionally well In the last
stand, and prevented the Whippets
from scoring. With only three minutes to go, and neither squad having
scored this period. Iola Worthlngton
broke through, and shot the winning
baaket tor Varsity.
To-night the Women's Senior B
team wilt play the Duffus Senior B
team for the championship ot the
Senior B city league.
Artsmen's Fumefest
(Continued from Page 1)
C. Sword Club, and Dr. Zlto, an exponent of the Italian aspect of the art.
One could almost Imagine oneself in
the Palace of Versailles, with the hero pressing the villain with his trusty
rapier. The demonstration was particularly Interesting owing to the fact
that the French and Italian styles
were employed.
After this outburst, thoso who had
knives cut spaces through the fog and
were rewarded by seeing two grotesque figures ln pyjamas throw
themselves around. These figures
were none other than "Jiu Jltsu" experts, and gained great applause, especially after every thump from the
Arts' "he-men." Next the audience
was startled by the appearance of a
veritable armory on the floor, but
were calmed when it was explained
that these were not from the C. O.
T. C, but two Japanese fencers, who
were prepared for the hard cracks
that were to come. "Arts" won and
tho gladiators were heartily applauded.
Following this, Mr. Soward mounted the rostrum and gave a delightful
lecture on "The Professor as the Student Sees Him" and "The Professor
as He Really Is." Needless to say
there was quite a difference between
the two.
A very romantic skit was next put
on by the Publications Board, in
which Mr. Irvine Keenleyslde and Mr
F. St. John Madeley played the pails
of Romeo and Juliet, respectively (but
not respectably). Incidentally the act
was done In modern slang, which add
ed a glamour to the situation but
must have made Shakespeare revolve
rapidly in Ills grave.
Mr Angus then treated the audience with some very naughty stories.
Tli"se were (censored). Dr. Sedgewick followed hlni with an interesting
sketch on "Why My Family Made a
Success  of  Life."
Finally the Attree girls of Arts '30
fame were put to shame by a Hawaiian Innovation from the Royal
Egyptian Ballet of the Society of
Thoth. The setting so reminded the
audience of a foggy night on a Hawaiian sea-shore that some of them attempted to swim in apple-cider which
was given to those with biggest push.
After this act the audience rushed
to the ladies' dresslug room and the
stage entrance, hoping to take "Juliet" or "Doris" home. But, alas! Romeo hove in sight ln his trusty Foru,
and the mob disbanded "pronto,"

Meralomas Win Over
Canadian Rugby Team
Saturday's clash with the Moral*
omas brought to a close Varsity's activity In the local Canadian Rugby
leagues. Since Christmas, the Blue
and Gold have been represented in the
Intermediate series by an entirely remodelled crew of extremely Interested
rahs. The majority of the players
had never taken part in the game before, and for that reason, It is very
much to the credit of every man that,
such a remarkably efficient team was
produced.
Two losses to Richmond and two
losses to the Meralomas comprised
the net results of Varsity's entry In
the Intermediate league. But with
these losses the University team has
profited by an experience which the
men could not have gained had they
been up against weak teams. It is
safe to say that had luck been with
the Blue and Gold at any time throughout the series, as It certainly was
with the Meralomas on Saturday last,
then the local team would have chalked up a win which they duly deserved.
When Canadian Rugby calls for a
turnout next fall, between twenty and
thirty new converts will feel the urge
to answer It and several strong teams
should be formed. Much credit Is due
to the coach, Dr. Burke, ably assisted
by Bill Haggerty, for the style of
rugby this team exhibited. Max Cameron, president of the Canadian Rugby
Club, executed his duties, in attending to the business of the team, in a
manner which could not be criticized.
Twelve of the Meralomas' fourteen
points, scored agalnBt Varsity's nil
on Saturday resulted directly from
the recovery of the local team's fumbles. The other two points came from
deadline kicks. Hedreen, Johnson,
Ilerto and Coleman distinguished
themselves In their positions, Hedreen and Berto tackled with such a
disregard for their persons that the
Meralomas felt sick. Coleman and
Ilerto niado made yards on lino bucks
und Johnson, in the backllolil, protect ed by a line which held admirably,
