With the advent of compulsory military training for male
students, co-eds this year will rise to positions of responsibility
never before attained by them. Outnumbered more than two
to one, the girls have always been content to allow men and
men's organizations to dominate the campus, but six hours
weekly training will now curtail the letter's activities.
University    clubs    will    be    overrun' and  grass hockey,
with co-eds. Men will join fewer
clubs, and will be less active in the
ones to which they do belong. Girls,
on tho contrary, will have more spare
time than in former years, for on the
evenings when Perciv.l used to take
Mary Jane to the movies he will now
be drilling.
Girls who formerly had time for
only one club will now Join two or
three. Phrateres, the Women's Public
Speaking Club, and organizations such
as La Canadienne and Le Cercle
Francals ln which women have always had a majority will flourish,
while the membership of the Mamooks and the all-male science clubs
will decline.
For  the first time in   the  history  of
the University sororities may be more
influental   than   fraternities,   and   certainly they  will  be  more active.
This year it will be easy for men to
become   members   of   the  Musical   Society and the Players' Club, while coeds will find it correspondingly diffl- !
cult.     Some   of   the   club   productions
may   have   completely   feminine   casts; !
at   any   rate,   the   girls   will   have   the]
greater number of parts, for the men's
rehearsal time will be cut short. '

In college politics, untl now completely in the hands of the men, girls
will become more active. It is possible that within the next few years
there may even be a woman president  of  the  Alma Mater Society.

Annual Cairn Ceremony
To Be Held Tuesday
out of the wilderness
Once upon a time, when Point Grey
was a wilderness of brush and rock,
and the Science blulding was a gaunt
skeleton of rusty steel, and the University boulevard was a logging road,
n group of lusty voiced students gave
a skyrocket for U.B.C. and built a
cairn of native rock in the centre of
the pathway that is now the centre
It'a an old story, this story of the
Cairn, and the great Campaign of
1922, but it's worth telling again. Student council members retell lt every
year to the handful or students who
are Interested enough in maintaining
tradition to keep the Cairn's memory
On Tuesday at noon, students are
expected to assemble once more
around the memorable pile of rocks
which still stands, ivy cohered, before
tho Science building, and pay tribute
<  to  the   pioneers  of  1922.
It. will be a simple ceremony on
Tuesday — a few words of tribute by
Harry Lumsden and Bob Bonner, a
smattering   of   applause   and   then   It's
all over. But there's a spirit behind
the ceremony that means much more
than the mouthlngs of council members.
The students who packed the Calm
stone by stone from Fairview to Point
Grey back in 1922, have long since
departed,  and have been forgotten.
But the Cairn which they built still
stands — a symbol of the Alma Mater
spirit which smoulders beneath the
academic exterior of the undergraduate body.
Tlie University of British Columbia
has few traditions, but no University
has a greater tradition than the Cairn.
The Cairn is the University.
It Is a shrine before which every
undergraduate must bow his head
before he can call himself a true son
of his Alma Mater. It is the concrete
form of the nebulous something which
everyone refers: to as College Spirit.
History Is engraven across its rugged
ivy-covered face. Tradition stands
out from every granite block which
is   part  of  its   makeup.
Until you have seen the Cairn and
appreciated it, you have never really
seen   the  University. Pago Two

The Book Store
As usual at this time of year, it is almost
impossible for the average hurried student to
get a book in the Book Store. Although some
students are served in a comparatively short
time, others have to wait half an hour or sometimes an hour before they get what they want.
This inconvenience is quite avoidable.
Stores have similar rushes during sales, and
they manage to keep the crowds moving at a
fairly good speed. Even the Book Exchange
works more quickly.
The staff of the Book Store is large enough,
but the delegation of one person as cashier
seems unnecessary as no time is actually saved.
The salesman has to wait for the change before he can serve someone else. One more
person waiting on the students would make a
real difference.
Members of the staff could, we believe,
move more quickly although they do work
very hard at this particular time of year.
Surely too, it would not add greatly to the cost
of administration to hire students to work part
time. If the proposed co-operative book store
provides better service at lower costs, it will
certainly get more business.
University Club
Is the University becoming a rich man's
club? That question is being asked across
Canada by a number of publications and by
prominent men.
The trend in Canadian universities has
been markedly in that direction in the last
few years. Endowments have disappeared,
government grants have been drastically cut,
and fees have risen accordingly. The resulting
rise in the cost of a university education has
prevented a great many students from lower
middle class and working class families from
continuing their education. State universities
in the United States charge only a nominal fee
for residents of the state, but in Canada, the
provincial universities have been forced to increase their fees to previously undreamed of
figures. •
In England, too, a wide system of scholarships provides the means for anyone with ability to attend university. The statement was
made jtist before the start of the war that
seventy per cent of the students at Oxford were
there on scholarships.
For students who do not live in the university town, the burden is especially difficult.
Here at U.B.C. for instance, students from the
interior, or up the coast or the island have to
count six or seven hundred dollars for their
expenses, a sum which can hardly be earned in
one summer, no matter how good the job.
Therefore, a student who cannot get help from
his family, or who cannot get a bursary or a
scholarship, has no chance to attend college.
Brilliant students who obtain a scholarship
aften cannot attend university because they
were unable to find work in the summer that
would pay for transportation, board and room,
clothes, and books. Notice how many interior
scholarships revert to someone else.
On the other hand, there are a large number of young people living in the city who come
out to the University for no other purpose than
to have a good time. It is becoming the
"thing to do" in social circles in Vancouver.
Such young people are wasting their own time,
the professors' time, and the taxpayers' money
which might be used for far more valuable
The University to some extent is failing
in its function of providing leaders for Canada. It is missing a great deal of good material
in the poorer classes of the outlying regions,
where so many leaders come from, and it is
wasting its faculty and equipment on material
that will never be valuable to Canada. This
failure is not the University's fault by any
means. The university grants across the country must be restored and increased, and the
number of scholarships and bursaries available should be greatly increased.
Orator:   "This  statement,  gentlemen,  may
tax your credulity."
Voice:  "What!    Has it come to this?"
Am Old Story
I'm afraid that this is going to be a rather
unpopular column, but I want to get something out of my system, so here goes. If you
are easily riled, perhaps you had better not
read it. I know to start out with that few
people agree with me, and I don't expect to
convert many by the time I'm through.
The topic concerns popular music. I won't
tell you my opinion of it yet, because I have
to work up to sort of a climax. There have
been a lot of people lately claiming that jazz
is good, that it represents the spirit of the age,
and that it will live because of that fact. They
say that people whistle it and sing it, and
therefore it is the only true "people's music".
That is partly true, of course. It does represent the spirit of the age, if there is any one
spirit, and people do whistle and sing it.
But people do not whistle and sing it because the themes are any better or easier to
whistle than classical themes. That is shown
by the large number of themes of popular
music taken from classical sources. I remember one day a few years ago, I was very surprised to hear the bakery man whistling the
theme of the last movement of the "Symphony
Espagnol" for violin and orchestra by Lalo.
The next day, I heard a grocery boy down
town whistling it. It was a week or so before
I realized that they were whistling the verse
of "Tippy Tippy Tin".
Nor are themes presented any more effectively in modern music. It is often far easier
to pick out the theme ln a classical piece than
it is from the tangled mass of syncopation and
improvisation of a popular orchestra.
Popular themes are whistled and sung
chiefly because they are repeated over the
radio so often that everyone hears them
many times.
As for the permanent value of such music,
I believe that most of it is in the same class as
the literature in the cheap pulp magazines. It
ls often vivid and catching, using every device to attract the listener or the reader, but
once heard or read, has nothing left. There
is no doubt that it is primitive, or a large part
of it. Our reaction to the rhythm is the reaction of the savage to the rhythm of the
drums. It has much the same effect on us as
had the ancient dances at the festivals and
ceremonies of savage tribes.
A number of modern dance tunes have,
in fact, come from the jungle direct to us. Ex-
piditions properly equipped went out- into the
African jungles to record native drums and
singing. What they brought back was used
for new "hits." American and Canadian tastes
have been developed to appreciate such stuff,
and it was popular.
We can hardly expect everybody to listen
to symphonies and operas all the time. A
people must have dances and songs that can
actually be danced and sung. But the dances
and songs of America seem to have their origin
in the negro songs and dances of our neighbors. But times may change. • Hot stuff is
not naturally suited to the peoples of northern
climes, and we may some day develop songs
and dances of our own that will have more
musical value to them.
I'm not condemning all popular music at
all. There are a great many hit songs that
are not primitive nor debasing, songs that
anybody can enjoy, whether he belongs to the
classic fanatics or to the swing fanatics. Such
songs live with the people and will always be
Now I suppose you think I'm wrong. Well,
the next pep meet you go to, look around at
the audience. While the orchestra is playing,
all the girls are talking to one another, about
what, I don't know, but they seldom look at
the orchestra. The boys throw things around
or eat their lunch, or even read the "Ubyssey,"
When a soloist plays with the orchestra, they
drown him out with clapping before he has
played half a dozen notes. They don't listen
to the music, and yet they say that's the only
kind they ever listen to.    It's just a habit.

Frank Dosse, now the Minneapolis Star

cubs. When he was breaking in as a reporter
on a Wisconsin Daily in a polish community, he
answered the phone one day and a woman
started reeling off a social item:
"Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Wojciechowicz .  ,  ."
"Just a minute," Frank broke in, "how do
you spell Wojceichowicz?"
"Why," snorted the indignaUt subscriber,

Students return to the University this year at one of the
most critical and one of the most tragic moments in the history
of mankind. In one brief summer, the war picture has changed '
utterly. Free men everywhere see the conflict with new eyes:
they see this civilization that has been built up for better or for [
worse struggling for its very existence. Universities as the core
of this civilization have a vital stake in the struggle. j
Under such conditions,  this University, like the  others in \
Canada, has a definite part to play.    It must place its entire
resources at the disposal of the government, because it would I
soon cease to exist should defeat occur. j
It must turn out engineers of all kinds to develop the na- j
tural resources of the country, to expand its industries, and to j
improve the quality of its products.    It must produce scientists I
to discover, not new means of mass slaughter, but adequate de- |
fence equipment against the weapons of barbarism.    Above all,
it must train leaders — men who can think for themselves, who
can make decisions, who can speak and write coherently and
effectively.    By fulfilling these functions, the  University  can
best serve at the present time.
There can be little criticism of the introduction of military
training in the universities.
Many activities, particularly some of the major sports, will
suffer considerably, but there will be physical training for all
men in the miitary training. The only question that arises about
the training is "Will it be adequate?" We are ready to do our

Radio Society
Calls Members
To   Organize
An open meeting of aU students interested in any phase of radio will be
held at noon, on Tuesday, October 1,
in Arts 104.
The society has been functioning
for three years, in a field considered
the newest of th arts, under a handicap more severe than that which
faced the Player's Club In its early
days during the last war. Officials
of the group state that they hope to
be able to base this year's activities
on a firmer foundation. How this
can be accomplished, with members
still able to take active part in broadcasting, will be discussed at the meeting on Monday.
The Radio Society extends an
Invitation to all students who wish
to make radio their major hobby
or interest. There will be opportunities to perform on the air, and,
If sufficient Interest Is shown, It
Is believed that a number of radio
workers would come to the campus to assist In the planned activities.
The Society has a pledge of all aid
that can be given by station CJOR,
and Dorwin aBird, former editor of
the Ubyssey, and now Program Director at CJOR, has offered to secure
tho co-operation of his colleagues at
that station and CBR.
Experience is desirable in new
members, but not essential. Club
officials are more anxious to meet
students who are interested in radio
work, and willing to co-operate to the
best of their ability.

- Soccer
Despite previous announcements to the contrary Varsity
will field a flight of Thunderbirds this fall. In other words, the
football team has received the go sign and will carry on as
usual. This is the latest word of chief enthusiasts, Maury Van
Vliet and M.A.A. prexy, Jim Harmer.
At a meeting of the Men's Athletic?
Directorate on Wednesday and at
subsequent discussions with athletic
authorities It has been decided to continue with a reduced schedule which
will not interfere with military training. This agrees \**th the advice from
Ottawa to "carry on".
Varsty fans, who had sunk Into the
fog of football starvation, can hope
for a maximum of three games, all
exhlbtions against Victoria and Vancouver.
Tbe first game is scheduled for
October 14th, Thanksgiving Day,
against Victoria. One night game with
Vancouver is also planned and there
are some signs of another game for
Harmer even  hopes  for  a  more
exciting  season,   one  that  will   be
short and snappy.    He expects the
toughest opposition  from Victoria.
"We've lost nearly all our line and
almost half our backfleld, but apart
from that we'll have a good team,"
Maury moans. But others are more
optimistic and point to a list of prospects including a line of Tucker, Cote,
Curry, Wallace, Orr, Mattu, and Gardiner, and a backfleld of Finlay,
Fournler, Teagle, Gus Carmlchael, and
a fellow named Harmer.
Practices,   at   first   chiefly   for   limbering   up,   get   underway   this   week
at 5:30 each night. Chief coach Maury
will preside as usual, assisted by Noll ,
The welcome sign is out for new
players, especially frosh with high
school experience. AU prospective
football heroes are advised to report'
immediately to the Gym. (This applies to men only).

No practices have been called yet,
but. Fred Marlow and Ken Eldridge
are out scouting for freshmen prospects to fill the shoes of some of the
graduating members of last year's
star-studded squad.
While   military   training   will   interfere   to  a  certain   extent  with  soccermen.  it  is   expected  that  a  team  may
be   entered   in   the   Wednesday   league
in  place  of  the   usual  Vancouver  and
District   League   which   has   provided
Varsity   opposition  for  some years.
All   frosh   Interested   In   Joining

Extensive  Season
The University golf club's ambitious plan to make U.B.C.
a "golf school" along the lines of the more famous Stanford U.
of California, is rapidly gaining momentum these surprisingly
warm fall days. With the breath of summer still lingering in
the" air members of the club are out every day tuning up fox*
what promises to be the biggest golf championship in the history of the University, due to take place in October.
Every    day    the    club   continues   to f'    — 	
grow   phenomenally   as   the   golf   bug '     Plommer,   Gordie  Livingstone  and

National Championships. With Phyllis
Mitchell, Emily Fraser. Lillian Johan-^
sen. Phyllis McEwen. and Ruth Wilson of last year's team all back on
the campus, and with two good prospects—Jean Eckhardt and Joan Morris

at any time, and instruction is provided   for   beginners,

bi., apparently inspired by the success
of the U.B.C. golf team's jaunt to
California last spring, takes a nip out
of veteran golf clubsters and freshmen   alike.
Thi:: year plans will be made, according to the executive, for a series
of tournaments which will allow both
low handicappers and novices to compete on an equal basis. From the
rank.-: of the club a first and second
four and eight man team will be
chosen for matches against the leading  golf  clubs  in  the city.
