Governors Authorize
Home Nursing Course
Intelligent Seniors of Ability
For War Time Emergency
or Epidemic
Prompted by the present European conflict, the Board of
Governors of the University this week authorized the Department
of Nursing and Health to offer a course in Home Nursing to a
limited number of senior women students. The classes will be
held on "Wednesdays from 3.30 to 5 p.m. throughout the remainder
of the session. ^^
The week of November 6-11 has
been set aside as "Totem Week," It
was announoed yesterday by Ossy
Durkin, Totem Editor, and Bert Hos-
kins, Business Manager.
Starting on Monday, student salesmen wlU be found in the Cafeteria
and other gathering places on tho
oampus. Frank Pendleton Is In oharge
of circulation, and hla staff will collect the doUar-down payment from
patriotic undergraduates.
StudenU who make their down
payment will be preaented with a
Totem tag, whloh they muat wear if
they wish protection from the pester-
lngs of energetic circulation men.
The 1640 edition of the university
annual promises to keep up the stan
dard set by last year's Totem staff.
In order to do this, however, the
book must be kept within the financial limits set down for lt by Student's Council.
For this reason, no books will be
printed unless they have been ordered. Students are advised to order
their Totems next week, for after
November 11 the chanoe may not return.
During "Totem Week," there wUl
be a display of previous Totems and
1040 Totem material ln the Cafeteria.
New students and those who have
not seen last year's Totem are Invited
to view this showing for their own
Cost of the annual thla year will
be three doUars, as usual. This cost
may be paid ln easy instalments,
which may be discussed with your
Totem salesmen. There will be absolutely no carrying charge for this
service, according to Mr. Hosklns.
Salisbury to
Form Campus
Date Bureau
Tired of an endless and unfruitful
search for female companions, residents of Salisbury Lodge, male
boarding houae near the campus, announced the' <ntentlon thia week, of
forming a L   ._ Bureau.
For years, the men of Salisbury, all
of whom come from out-of-town,
have battled with the question of
striking up an acquaintance with college co-eds. But Salisbury boys are
bashful, and the resulting number ot
lassies contacted, has not been large.
"We are sure that there must be
myriads of timid co-eds waiting for
a chance to meet University men,"
Salisbury boarders told the Ubyssey.
"The Salisbury date bureau will give
them  this opportunity."
All the co-eds have to do is mall
a post card to Salisbury Lodge, University Hill, stating their name, address, phone number, and adding any
pertinent personal remarks. After this
it will be a mere matter of sitting by
the telephone and waiting.
"The present purpose of the
course," Dr. O. E. Dolman, acting
head of the department, told the
Ubyssey yesterday, "is to secure a
reserve of Intelligent senior studsnts
of mors than average ability, who
will have training In the funotlons
and praotloe of home nursing so
that, In the event of an emergenoy
occasioned by widespread epidemic,
there would be a body of responsible
persons In attendance."
Although a similar oourse Is being
offered In the city, It was ths belief
of the department that as the necessary facilities and equipment are at
hand, It would be more convenient
for aenior students to take the
oourse on the oampus.
Because of limited aocommodation,
the group will be a seleoted one of
an appropriate maximum of 80.
Oraduates and Third and Fourth
Year students Interested In taking
the course are aaked to meet In
Science 400 on Monday, November
6 at 12.80 noon. Thoae moat suited
to take the eourae will be aelected
by peraonal interview.
The department haa alao been authorized to conduct, in a Poat-Chriat-
mas  aesalon,  a  eourae  ln  Flrat  Aid.
Limited accommodation and facilities will reatrlct the course, this
year, to Publio Health Nurses. In
subsequent years, It ls expected they
will be equipped as instructors and
the course widened to include others.
All members of the department
have offered their services on a voluntary basis. The home nursing
course will be In charge of Miss
Qeraldine Homfray of the department, asaiated by Miaa Muriel Up-
shall of the Unlveralty Health Service.
Student  Directory
Available For
Ten Cents
The Student Directory will appear
on the campus next week. Coplea

The delay la caused by the continued failure of the studenta to band
in their phone numbers and addresses in time. Oraduatea are alao
inoluded, provided that they regla-
tered before the final deadline. The
Editorial staff has tried to avoid mla-
takea by careful checking, but regrets any that they may have overlooked.
The staff reaponalble for the publication of the booklet inoludea Editor, Janet Walker; Aaalatanta, Mlml
Schofleld, Pat Webber, Kay Augustine, Dorothy Tupper and Bob Men-
ohiona. There are many other atudenta, too numeroua to mention,

Is   grateful.

Constitutional issues rarely, if ever, bother the Students'
Counoil, but a curious situation has recently been brought to light.
The Men's Athletic Directorate, a committee comprised of both
faoulty and students, has been passing financial minutes whieh
are binding upon Counoil.
During the preparations for Homeoomlng, the Saskatchewan
Huskies were guaranteed the sum of $800.00 for the expenses of
the prairie team ooming JWest. According to the constitution it is
perfectly legal for the Directorate to pass a minute to this effect,
but the minute means nothing until it has been approved by
Students' Council.
The M.A.D., however, meets on Tuesdays, and Students'
Council on Mondays. It is obvious that the M.A.D. must pass
minutes which ahould have effect before the end of the week,
possibly before Students' Council has given any approval.
It is not that the past actions of the M.A.D. warrant criticism,
but rather that the arangement at the moment leaves too great
a possibility for blunder. Unless Council has approved the minutes
of the athletic body, the Alma Mater Society is under no obligation
to respect undertakings of the subsidiary Directorate.
But now the Directorate has decided to move tho day of their
meetings to Thursday, in the hopes that any difficulties may be
avoided. No doubt this move will improve matters, and perhaps
the Directorate will no longer be in a position to bind Students'
Council and the Alma Mater Society.

The University of British Columbia is but a young institution
in point of actual years, and consequently it cannot be expected
to bristle with tradition, and customs of tho past. Yet we, the
students, have created, and will always observe what is now a
campus tradition, the annual Cairn ceremony.
The simple 'service' held once a yoar in front of the Cairn,
near the Science building, is not merely an event sponsored annually by Council, but rather a time when each and every student
can recall and admire the energy, enthusiasm, and unselfishness of
those earlier members of the A.M.S.
In the years of the great 'Fairview to Point Orey' campaign
the students clearly indicated the love they bore for their Alma
Mater. There was nt that time nothing trite about holding one's
Alma Mater in tremendous esteem, nothing sentimental about
making actual personal sacrifices for the university.
And this spirit among the students of the university is not
yet dead, in spite of the fact that it appears to be dying.
-iince the student triumph in 1922-23 the Alma Mater Society
has continued to tako the initiative in the construction of student
buildings, and has to date been largely responsible for the erection
of approximately $195,000 worth of buildings and playing fields.
No other university in Canada boasts such a record.
In brief, we students have started a custom of struggling for
what we desire, and what we need. We have overcome heavy odds
in order to succeed. We can be justly proud of otir predecessors
in these 'halls,'
Today we commemorate the greatest student campaign this
•university has seen. We think of the monster petition, the student
canvassers, the movement slowly gathering momentum to culminate in the victorious parade of shouting, singing scholars bearing
rooks from Fairview to Point Orey. We call to mind the erection
of the Cairn, and the 'naming' of the Science Building skeleton,
whence echoed the mightiest college yell for all time.
All the effort, work ond time so generously given by the
olasses of '22 and '23 were:

L«tft«rs To Th« Editor
The Editor,
The  Ubyssey.
Dear Sir:
I should like to add my aupport to
your editorial, "No Muslcales". I have
returned to the University after an
absence of several years, and I was
looking forward to these muslcales of
which I had heard.
Opportunity of hearing good music
comes rarely to those students living
away from home, and such concerts
would be very welcome. If the stu
dent body were given an opportunity
to register its opinion, I am sure
something could be done to remedy
the situation.
Yours truly,
Arts '41.
of Thorns
Two appeals for contributions to
this column have been made, but
neither have met with much suooess.
About fifteen pieces of original work
have been submitted, but of these
only three have been worth publishing. The Inadequate supply of material ls rather more disturbing than the
quality of the works handed ln. Al
though this scarcity of contributions
suggests that the campus Is almost
bereft of llterarlly productive stud
ents, I prefer to regard It as proof
that an abashed retloenoe Is the most
characteristic quality of those among
us who do write. This retloenoe Is
not merely their most significant
quality, but one which I find their
most ingenuous and endearing.
That literary creatlveness on the
oampus is at so low an ebb ls of
course ln many respects very exhilarating. The artistic efforts of students are not only usually depressing
In themselves (even to those who pro*
duoe them), but they almost invariably Initiate orgies of critical enthusiasm among acquaintances of the
creators. The quality of such enthusiasm Is founded more on oanons of
emotionalism than on any careful
critical considerations. By neuropaths such aa we are led along to
assume that wherever one's hat's
hung Is civilisation, we oome to feel
that seoond, fifth and even twentieth
rate art, provided it is near enough
ln space or time, has oosmlo Implications. These attempts to vary our
estimation of oreatlve work directly
with Its distance from ua are not easily discouraged.
As an obstruction to civilised Uvlng,
looal art should be subjected to a
discriminating catharsis, for although
It eliminates exoeaalve competition
from the processes of natural selection by substituting artistic calisthenics for amorous athleticism, it tends
to hinder the general conspiracy for
perpetuating the raoe by effecting a
transference of pangs. Whether or
not, it is ungodllke to hinder propagation Is problematical, but In spite
Of this I Issue a third appeal for contributiona. The prise of a dollar for
each  published stUl  stands.
I have received several letters from
students reproaching me for the un-
lntelllglbillty of the contributions
which have already appeared herein.
Though recognising the sincerity and
high moral Integrity motivating the
complaints (by virtue of being many
the unlaved readily acquire the virtue
of overweening sincerity), one feels
that the rhythm of the pleoes would
be disturbed by paraphrasing for the
multitude. Paraphrasls like sublimation ls always brackish.
Admittedly most of the contributions received have little palpable
worth. In keeping with colonial tradition, the poetesses who submit their
literary efforts for scrutiny might well
be advised to submit to something
more tangible. I have ascertained no
suitable remedy for the male contributors yet.
Obscurity has not been the hallmark of all the contributions thus far
received. The three contributions
published were obscure, but the 13
rejected could not have been published merely on the ground that they
could be understood.
Recondlty ls not essentially concomitant to good writing, but obscure
work well-handled ls at least more
easily read than work not merely
obvious but slovenly.

Congratulations are due to the

Aside    from    these    leaders    come

Concert Will Be
Pass Sytem
The world famous Hart House
Quartet wUl give a concert ln the
University Auditorium on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at noon. Students win
be admitted under the pass system.

The concert has been arranged under the sponsorship of the Department of university Extension.
Thirty years ago, before Europe's
art and culture was torn up and
scattered to the winds whloh brought
them finally to land on the North
Amerloan continent, Eugene Ysaye—
one of the greatest musical personalities of our time—held olasses for
young geniuses at his summer estates
In Belgium.
Boris Hambourg, ceUlst of the Hart
Houae Quartet whloh appears here
In one of its superb and rare concerts
on November 16 was one of Ysaye's
group of young prodigies.
There he met string players' from
all parts of the world who oame ta
worship at the feet of the master,
who  imparted  hla  knowledge  and
advioe sympathetically and wisely.
Eaoh pupil participated In playing
string-quartets   under   the   master's
guidance,    and    two    youths    were
brought together little knowing that
many years later they were to form
and play In a Canadian string quartet whloh would beoome world-famous.
That was the real beginning ef
the Hart House Quartet, whloh ta
all these yean haa only had two
changes la personnel.
Boris Hambourg and MUton Black-
stone,  viola,   are   the   two original
players,   who   were  so   fortunate  to
secure   as  eoUeaguee,   James Levey
who was for so many years leader of
the  famed  London  String  Quartet,
and Adolphe Koldofsky, leader of the
Prague Quartet of Caeehe-Slovakia,
although himself a native of London,
England. The   praises   of   the Hart
House Quartet have been sung ln almost every  modern  language.

The Mamooks led the cheering
throughout the entire contest and
Student throats were hoarse trom not

Once, when Johnson of the Huskies, was led from the field with a
bloody face, a slightly soused gentleman from North Shore's grid elite,
essayed himself the task of exhorting
the stands to cheer the departing
Mr. Johnson.
The Mamooks, and the Varsity
stands, met his bucholic breezing
with stoney glares and clenched lips.
Suddenly there burst from the stands

Williams will be out with a bruised
