Individual Clear Thought
Necessary For Success
Of Democracy'-Zimmern
Oxford Don Vigorously Defends Democracy
Against Dictatorship
Members of the student body were
by no means hesitant to avail themselves of an,opportunity to hear Dr.
A. E. Zimmern, noted Oxford professor speak, under the auspices of
the History and Economics Departments. Before 12:15 the auditorium
was packed to the doors and the at-(
tentlon which characterized the meeting not to mention the whole-hearted
applause which rang out at the conclusion of the address, indicated quite
clearly that the audience thoroughly
enjoyed the speaker's every word.
Dr. Zimmern's address acted as an
introduction to the lecture given yesterday evening or. the British Commonwealth Foreign Policy. He stated
that his remarks were purposely of
a provocative nature and that he
hoped that they would raise questions which would be answered at
the evening session.
According to Dr. Zimmern a great
deal of the confusion in present day
affairs is a direct result of wrong
thinking. "There is nothing wrong
with the world as such—our thinking
is Wrong and our wills are too weak
to put over the right policy. There
are no insoluble international problems, only impenetrable minds, mass
ignorance and prejudice. The remedy
lies in clear thinking."
The speaker pointed out that there
were three major fallacies which affected the thinking of British Colum-
that B.C. is an outpost of empire.
The British Commonwealth has
no frontiers—it extends round the
world. London has exactly the same
status as Ottawa. B. C. is close to
two major problems, it is on the
fringe of the far eastern problem and
it is in close relationship with the
United States. You occupy a key
position and can act as vehicles of
better understanding.
The second of these is the attitude
"Let Geneva do it!" Many people
want to dispose of the national problems  by  turning  them  over to  the
League of Nations In imperial relations we have adopted a policy of
decentralization. Some think that
political progress is the establishment
of larger units. This is another case
of wrong thinking. There is nothing
desirable in a world army or world
government, this would result in the

Dr. Clark, known for his work in
physical and organic chemistry, is
in a good position to present a striking panorama of the advance of
chemistry in recent ■ years, having
been engaged in active work in this
branch of science since early in the
century. He has seen a number of
remarkable changes take place in
chemistry and his observations should
prove interesting alike to those who
know little chemistry and those who
are specializing in the field.

Variety Features
Seven Informal
Skits for Grads
Variety and informality were the
keynote of the Theatre Night pro-
Igram which was presented Friday
1 evening to an audience of several
| hundred graduates as a part of the
Alumni Homecoming festivities. Seven skits, vatsly dissimilar both in
subject matter and manner of presentation, provided the entertainment.
The evening was begun with a
welcoming Klahowya for the Grads.,
the weakness of which justified a belief that students were greatly in the
minority. Mark Collins formally welcomed the visitors, impressing upon
them the importance of the Homecoming celebration as an integral
part of the year's social activity. John
Oliver, president of the Alumni Association, was called on, and read
congratulatory telegrams received
from graduates residing in widely
separated parts of the country. One
from East Kootenay stated that a
group of 100 graduates were hd_ing
a Homecoming party at that m.ment.
A message from the "only graduates
making money" was sent from Bark-
erville citizens, and telegrams from
Canton, China, were also read.
The Alumni Players' Club,  an organization formed this year, made the
first  theatrical  contribution,   "Daniel
i in the Lionesses Den" was their first
! performance.
Skits were also presented by the
nurses, the Faculty of Arts, tho
'players' Club, the Musical Society,
the Education Class, and the Sclenco-
men. This last was especially notable
for a new orchestra and a quartstte
with five members ... one of whom,
however, was mislaid when the encore was presented
When the roll of the classes was
called it was met with a response

Forum Orators
Meet Stanford
Team Friday
The debating highlight of the year
for the University of British Columbia Parliamentary Forum, in the
words of its honorary president and
founder, Prof. J. Friend Day, will be
furnished at the forthcoming intercollegiate encounter with visiting
team from the University of Stanford.
The two university teams will contest the resolution "That the United
States is largely to blame for the
present world crisis." By a
special request, the Stanford delegation has been allotted the aftirmative
oi  the same question.
The winning debaters are to be
selected by a board of judges composed of Mr. Dugald Donaghy, Mr.
Rowe Holland, and Mr. Philip Malkin. The contest is scheduled for
Nov. 17 at 8 p.m. in the Oak «Room
ot the Hotel Vancouver.
Robert Grantier, registered from
Missoula, Montana, and Honour student in History, i« the first Stanford
debator. He has debated against the
University of California, University of Sa:i Francisco, Menlo Junior
College, San Jo3e State College, ancl
the College of Puget Sound.
Rollin Woodbury, registered from
Hollywood, California, and an Honour student in Political Science is the
other visitor. He has debated against
Santa Clara University, Marquette
University, Pomona College, College
of the Pacific, University of Southern
California, Loyola University, and
Whittler College.
Jack Conway and Ernest Brown
will represent British Columbia. Conway, a third year student in history,
has been prominent in inter-high
school debating, and since joining
the Parliamentary he has led off in
many of the debates. Prof. Day says
that he possesses to a most remarkable degree the ability to discern obscure contradictions in an opponent's
argument, and ».o draw attention to
them. This is his first inter-collegiate
venture. Members of the Forum still
remember his speech on the Press in
J the Forum last year.

History and English, is present president of the Parliamentary Forum of
! which he was one of the original
founders. He debated against the Uni-
I versity of Saskatchewan last year, on

On World Peace
At League Meet
"That democracy offers better guarantees for world peace than dictatorships," was the resolution debated before a capacity audience in the University auditorium Saturday evening
under the auspices of the Vancouver
Institute. The debate concluded the
Memorial Day activities of the Vancouver Branch of the League of Nations Society of Canada and had for
its principals Prof. J. Friend Day and
Howard S. Coulter.
The Kitsilano Boys' Band, under
Director A. W. Delamont, offered
several of their prize selections preceding the feature of the evening.
Following this Dr. C. W. Topping,
of the department of economics ancl
president of the Society, opened the
Robie L. Reid, chairman of the
conference and first president of the
society, introduced the speakers.
Prof. Day, speaking for the affirmative, saw in the "greatest and most
marked efficiency" of democratic
control one of the greatest forces in
delaying such a momentous decision
as war. Maintaining that unless the
issue were one of obvious national
necessity the opposition in the government of the democracy would
"seize the opportunity to arouse the
people to the ulterior motives of the
party in power."
Basing his argument on th. fact
that never in tho course of history
has a dictatorship been the cans.' of
anything, but has always come as the
direct result of conditions immediately preceding i', Mr. Coulter, debating the negative, showed that in
every instance of the great dictatorships of the past, they had ushered in an era of peace wherj before
there was strife,

Alumni to the number of about a
hundred and fifty gathered in the
Caf. on Friday night for the annual
Homecoming dinner.
In his opening address Johnnie Oliver, president of the alumni, stressed
the fact that thc Association has resolved to become a more vital force
in the life of the University.
The Treasurer.! report was read,
and, while the deficit is smaller this
year than previously, it will still be
impossible to publish the "Chronicle"
this year, and unless fees are paid
promptly it will not be published
next year.
The entire executive board of lost
year was re-elected by acclamation.
The Honorary President, Dr. Klinck,
then gave a short address.
After expressing his appreciation of
his re-election, Dr. Klinck spoke of
the splendid activities being carried
on by the Association for the purpose of making the University better
known. The first of these was the
Freshmen Organization, which consists of representatives of the faculty
and students, uncle - Dr. Shrum. President Klinck also mentioned the visiting governors, of which two are
appointed at each meeting, to go to

A change has been made in the direction of the plays. Miss Marjorie
Ellis has taken charge of "Two Crooks

Warren, who is directing "Punch and
Go" with the assistance of Miss Ellis
for the fantasy part. Dr. F. C. Walker still is director of "The Pie and

of "El Cristo."
For the rfirst time student directors
are being given a chance to gain experience by helping as assistants.
Those chosen for this work are: Mas-
ala Cosgrave, "Two Crooks and a
Lady"; Stu Keate, "The Pie and the
Tart"; Bill Sargent, "El Cristo"; Gerald  Prevost,  "Punch and  Go."
"We were all very impressed with
the Pep Rally, and the enthusiasm
shown by all the students."
Mr. Hutton, cornered between two
dances at the W.U.S. tea-dance following the game, unburuened his
soul to this Ubyssey reported in a
most gratifying way.
' When asked his opinions of U.B.C.
co-eds, he admitted dreamily, "They
are very plus-plus — some of them.
People say a change is good for one
—I guess they're right. So far all
that I've met I've liked. The team
has been shown a grand time while
we've been here, and we certainly
appreciate your hospitality."
When he was requested to give his
views on our co-eds as compared
with Alberta women, a wary look
crept into Mr. Hutton's eye, and he
gracefully declined to answer. "I
might get myself into trouble," he
"What do I think of your men students?" asked the Alberta end, "Well,
I guess I don't think about them so
much. "Heck, there's not the same
comparison. Men are the same everywhere. But your team are the best
we've ever played as far as sportsmanship goes,"
"We wero very impressed with the
buildings here, especially the library.
The layout of the campus is the
nicest I've ■ seen in three years of
playing rugby and travelling to universities In Saskatchewan, Alberta,
Manitoba, and B. C. The equipment
in the labs is much superior to curs,
too," he continued, "and thc Ubysssy
compares favorably with the U. of A.
"Have you any further opinions for
the press," asked this reporter hopefully.
"Yes. Vou may put me down as
stating that life is just a bowl of
cherries," remarked Mr. Hutton wittily, as he rose to trip the lijht fantastic.

"Hey! Come back!" shouted Pete
Rule, "I really mean it! I'm not just
saying I liked the game because you
expect me to say so. They're a great
team to play against even if they did
beat us."
And that seems to sum it up fairly

Series Incurs
$100 Loss
The Alma Mater Society incurred
a loss of approximately one hundred
dollars on the Alberta-U.B.C. Canadian rugby series, according to an
estimate made by Max Stewart yesterday.
Judging from the total value of
tickets collected at the games the
gross receipts amounted to $1089 of
which the Alberta team gets Ms guar-
antes of $1,000 while Athletic Park
takes the remainder. This leaves to
the A.M.S. all local expenses connected with the series, while additional cost of the trip amounting to
another hundred dollars will be met
by the Alberta students.
The members of the invading team
were very enthusiastic about the
treatment which they received on
their visit and praised the U.B.C.
gridders as rugby opponents.

When U. of A. Lose 12 to S
Mclntyre Stars, Scores Touch
Kendall Aids Students By Kicking Two Field
Goals And a Convert
For the first time in the last two
years Varsity Senior Soccermen emerged victorious in a game with their
traditional rivals, Chinese Students,
last Saturday. The final score, 3-0,
waa not altogether indicative of the
rim of the play; Varsity should have
had a greater margin. But the re-
, venge was sweet anyway.
In spite of a poor field the game
was very fut and some sparkling
footbaU was exhibited, which kept
the 500 spectators interested at all
times. Towards the very end, however, both teams appeared tired and
the play began to lag, but under the
circumstances it was pardonable.
Although the Blue and Oold forwards pressed the Oriental's goal
throughout, their efforts were rewarded only in the first half, but
then they came in a whirlwind. Jack
Martin scored the initial goal from
the melee in front of the Chinese
citadel. Varsity were then so definitely superior that the count was inevitable. A few moments later a
dynamite drive from the foot of Dave
Todd on a beautiful pass from Archie
McDougal left Shupon Wong in the
Chinese goal no chance.
Very soon after McDougal headed
in the third and the last goal on a
pass from Kozoolin. Varsity's left
flank was unfortunate in not adding
substantially to the score in this half
for Todd and McDougal with the assistance of Russ Stewart were right
on top of the opponents' goal several
times. At the other end, however,
Greenwood was called upon to save
only .wice.
The second half started out with
Varsity still controlling most of the
play. There was much good passing
and co-operation between the halves
and the forwards but the numerous
efforts went begging.
With about 25 minutes to play the
Chinese shifted their star fullback,
Coon, to forward in a desperate attempt to save the game. For a few
moments it seemed as if the change
was going to work. Queenie Yip
slipped by the backs but headed over
the bar. Then Dock Yip tested Greenwood with a tricky low shot, which
the latter saved at the expense of a
corner. Setling down, Varsity repelled the attack, and itself took up
the offensive. The ball was in the
Chinese territory when the final whistle went.
Varsity used the same eleven
throughout, but the Chinese substituted on three occasions and finished
the last quarter of an hour with ten
men, one of their half-backs leaving
on account of a leg injury.
For once Varsity's attack undisput-
ably outshone the defense, all the
forwards showing to advantage and
combining effectively. McGill at left-
back, and Wolfe ancl Stewart on the
intermediate line starred in the back
v division.
The team: Stan Greenwood, goal;
Jock Waugh and Millar McGill, fullbacks; Ernie Costain, Bill Wolfe, ancl
Russ Stewart, half-backs; Hughie
Smith, Paul Kozoolin, Jack Martin,
Archie McDougal, and Dave Todd,
forwards; Tim Louie, reserve.
Varsity Line Shone With Excellent Defensive
And Offensive Play
Attended by all the colour, excitement and enthusiasm of
an intercollegiate sport contest, the Univeristy of British Columbia's Blue and Gold grid team defeated the University of
Alberta's Golden Bears 12-5 at Athletic Park last Saturday
afternoon to win the Hardy Cup and the Western Canada Intercollegiate Canadian Rugby championship.
A sudden death struggle, owing to Thursday night's fog,
Saturday's game was one of the most exciting battles played
here this year, and over two thousand fans rocked the stands
with shout after shout of approval. The First B. C. Regimental
Band, who paraded on the field and played martial music before the game and at half time; and the added attraction of an
all-Aggie tug-of-war between halves __ turned on the heat with resumption
kept the crowd amused and added to
the spirit of the occasion.
Mclntyre and Kendall Star
The game Itself was a hard-fought
contest between two determined and
well-matched teams, but superior
kicking and backfield running gave
U. B. C. the edge and actually decided the issue. And to smiling Ed. Kendall and diminutive Doug Mclntyre
must go the highest honors. These two
lads, playing the game of their lives,
scored all the points for the local students, and proved a tower of strength
at all times.
Kendall's perfect and consistent
kicking put the Golden Bears on the
defensive time after time, his long
high punts giving the ends ample time
to get down the field for the tackle;
and his educated toe accounted for
two place kicks and a convert, a total
of 7 points. To Doug Mclntyre goes
the honor of scoring the first touchdown of the game on a beautiful 30-
yard run around the right end, while
the way in which he wormed his way
through the opposition for large gains
was reminiscent of the hero role he
played against Manitoba two years
For the visitors, Pete Rule, Reg
Moir and Morton were most spectacular. Pete Rule was the greatest yard-
gainer and thrilled the crowd with
his Une smashing ability. Reg Moir,
sport editor of "The Gateway" also J "Kendall and Morton indulged in a
crashed the line consistently, and Morton, the fullback played well although
he was outpunted    by Kendal   and
First Quarter Scoreless
Following  the official  kick-off  by
of play and had scored a touchdown
within three minutes. Taking advantage of a U. B. C. fumble on their
30-yard line, the Golden Bears marched down the field and in 10 power
plays had crashed over for a touchdown. It was the best showing made
by the visitors, and Rule, Scott, and
Moir who scored the touch deserve
credit for their smashing plays. The
convert failed and the score stood 9-5.
Rush for Varsity held Alberta in
check with some nice punts for the
next five minutes and forced the play
into the letter's territory. Keillor
blocked Morton's kick and U. B. C.
recovered on the Bear's 11-yard line.
A touchdown seemed certain but a
10-yard penalty for offside necessitated a kick and the Blue and Gold
team lost a sure point when excited
ends forgot that the receiver of a punt
must be given three yards.
Another scoring threat failed five
minutes later when Bourne dropped a
forward pass on the goal line with
nobody near him, and ended a 30-yard
U. B. C. advance. Alberta was in possession and had worked the ball to
midfield as the quarter ended.
V. B. C. Forces Play
Despite a determined Alberta bid
for victory, the Blue and Gold squad
controlled the play in the final quarter and scored another three points
to put the game on ice

Our fond hope of seeing ten nicely
bearded chins around the campus is
squashed. The Senior A boys with
vsions of bushy beards, played aggressive basketball to allow their rivals the Adanacs, only four baskets;
beating them 31-21. Varsity played
a much better game than they did
last time they played Adanacs who
beat them by one point on that occasion.
Both teams started very slowly,
passing the ball around in center
floor and feeling out each others defence. However, after each team had
scored four points, play quickened
to a very fast clip and continued that
way for the remainder of the game.
Adanacs were at one point leading
8-5 but soon after this the Blue and
Gold squad started playing real basketball and at half time they had
caught Adanacs at 13-13, rolling
"Tubby" d'Easum all over the floor
in the process.
George    Pringle,    lanky    Theolog,
opened the second half   scoring   by
sinking a rebound.   This gave Varsity a lead which they kept through-

play at 2:45 p.m. A fumble on the
second play gave Alberta possession
on U. B. C.'s 25-yard line, but Morton was forced to kick on the third
down. A fumbled kick gave the Blue
and Gold the ball inside the Bear's
territory for the first time, but Kramer of the latter team intercepted a
B. C. forward pass to end a scoring
Both teams exchanged punts a
couple of times until Farrington, who
played a sweet game, ran back an Alberta punt to give U. B. C. first and
ten on the Bear's 40-yard line. A series of line bucks by Senkler, Kendall,
Farrington and Bourne carried the ball
to Alberta's 6-yard line in three first
downs, but the visitors formed a stonewall defense and stopped a score as
the quarter ended.

Varsity Badminton
Team Beaten
Varsity badminton team took another b.ating on Thursday night, by
the Quilchena team. The score at the
end of the evening was only 9-7 however, so it was not a bad beating and
we have great hopes of scoring a victory over 1st B. C. Regiment next
The team consisted of: Misses M.
Palmer,  M.  Lock,  L. Boyd and  M.
Out of three games played Friday
night at their home gymnasium Varsity squads secured but one victory.
In the opener, Varsity's Intermediate
A team in the G.V.A.A. League
gained its second straight victory by
defeating Ryerson 24-15. However,
the Senior B girls were badly outplayed by Province 22-7 and ln the
final game the V. and D. Intermediate A boys, weakening ln the second
haif, lost to Sterlings 41-18.
The first game was keenly fought.
The students outplayed Ryerson from
the start; but in the first period were
unable to maxe openings for scoring.
Ryerson, on the other hand, did some
successful long shooting and the
score at the end of the first half was
tied at 9-9. Varsity opened strongly
after the intermission and soon had
a lead which they never lost. The
whole team played well in this match
and should make a strong bid for the
league championship. Those particularly outstanding were Thurbur, Morrison, McKee and Clarence Idyll.
The second game proved rather one
sided with the Province girls decidedly stronger throughout . The scoring
was light in the first period, the
newspaper lassies finishing ahead 9-2.
For the rest of the match Province
showed superior speed and completely outscored Varsity. The University
team looks rather weak at present
but should improve much in the near
future under the capable coaching of
Jerry Porter.
The final game was closely fou_ht
in the first half. However, in the
second period Sterlings outplayed
Varsity and finished the game on
top. Both teams played well before
the intermission; the Sterling boys
having the edge 16-13. After the rest,
Varsity succeeded in holding their
opponents for about five minutes,
but from then on were completely
outclassed finishing at the short end
of a 41-18 score. For the "U", Phair,
Wolfe and Lafon turned in good performances.
The teams:
first game — Thurbur <?,), Palles,
Morrison (5), Clark (2\ Salisbury,
McKee (9), Idyll (6), Obata, Total-
Second game—Munton (1). Hall, £1-
Manson; Messrs. P. McTaggart-Cow

Third Game — Ross, Lafon, Wolfe,

Girls Grass Hockey
Playing three short, the U. B. C.
Girls Grass Hockey team lost to Ex-
Kits. 2-0. Under this disadvantage
the girls played a splenaid game to
keep the score this low. Irene Wallace as full-back and Joan Wharton
as centre-forward were outstanding
for U. B. C.

losing a prospect and a perfectly good
nickel's worth of peanuts in one fell

the same feeling of good will which

The prize-winning poem for this week may be rather over
the heads of most of us, to whom "bears" are "golden bears"
and "bulls" are "sitting bulls." It may be a shock to prospective

has been reduced to one cracker, in collaboration with the cafeteria, but the good will in the award is diminished not one whit.
On the Late Massacre in Wall Street
Avenge, O Lord, Thy slaughtered saints, whose bones
Were garnered by the Wall Street brokers cold;
Even them who thought hot tips Thy truth of old
And straight began to worship stocks and stones
Forget not; in Thy book record their groans
Who were like sheep, and in the rush for gold
Slain by the bloody bulls and bears, that rolled
The small investor on the rocks; their moans
The vales redoubled to the hills, and they
To Heaven; their martyr'd blood and ashes sow
O'er mines and oil-fields, where ev'n yet doth sway
The golden tyrant, that from these may grow
A hundredfold, who having horse-sense may
Tell the bloodthirsty broker where to go.

newspaper?!, so that people in other
parts of the province may learn more
of University doings.
In regard to the Senate Committee
on Adult Education, Dr. Klinck stated
that the University is trying to get
back as quickly as possible to the
place it held several years ago in the
matter of conveying useful information to people in cities, towns ancl
villages throughout the Province.
Many thousands are interested in this
work ancl are helping to contribute
to the expenses of the professors who

to carry vital information to the people of British Columbia.
Thc Dalhousie Gazette and the
Western Ontario Gazette got together
last week in defence of the ladles and
gentlemen of the fourth estate.
News Hawks to you. The Dalhousie O.
defends college publications from
nasty ol' critics who claim that they
are a waste of student time, and a
nuisance to business of the community.   Says the Gazette:
"If the censors were to investigate
the conditions of their local collegiate journals they would find that
college presents one of the few extra
curricular activities both educationally and financially, on the campus."
And the University of Western Ontario Gazette presents th. good old
Winchell poem in recognition of the
humble reporter:
"So, here's  to the gallant reporters:
The boys with the pencils and pads:
Those calm, inperturable.
Nervy,  cool,  undisturable,
Inquisitive lads.
Each time we pick up the paper
Their  marvelous  deeds  we  should
Those bold, reprehensible,
Brave, indispensible,
Sensible men of the Press."
The only fault we have to find with
this gentle musing is that we've never
seen a reporter that owned a pencil,
he's always trying to borrow one.

elimination  of  the  responsibility  of
the citizens. Our policy must be the
increasing of co-operation between
states which have learned to act together. Don't use Geneva as a dumping ground for hard problems.
The third of these fallacies is that
we need a new economic system. It
would be ridiculous to put the world
under one central economic system
because economic arrangements are
made to suit local conditions. We
want not uniformity but flexibility
for economic problems. Many people
think that democracy is on the wane.
This is not so—democracy is much
stronger now than it has been at any
time. Dictatorship relies on popular
support, they draw on mass emotion.J
The principle of democracy won the
war. You never had to fight for democracy here—you don't appreciate
what the war did."
Dr. Zimmern declared that the
great statesmen are not the men
whose doings are the most widely
advertised. "The great men are wise
men—men whom you would trust to
conduct your own affairs. Dr. Benes
of Czecho-Slovakia is the most experienced and responsible statesman
in the whole world." Other great
men according to the speaker are
Hymans of Belgium, Mussolini since
he has adopted a policy of representation, Detadier of France who has
held France in check since Hitler's
rise, and Ramsay McDonald of England.
In conclusion Or Zimmern outlined
what he thought was the responsibility of university students in their
outlook on world affairs. "As university men ancl women you can save
democracy by resisting the appeals
to mass emotion ancl in being severely
critical of your own thinking. On
the whole as a close student of international affairs I have discovered
that people mean well but don't
think hard enough.

The large and appreciative audience that
greeted the lecture by Dr. A. E. Zimmern yesterday was an excellent commentary on the
attitude of the student body towards worthwhile speakers.
Dr. Zimmern has an excellent reputation
,as an authority on world conditions. His advice
to students to use their brains to dispel the
maze of ignorance and prejudice that is suffocating world relations was timely.
One aspect of his lecture was of peculiar
interest. He declared that Canadians spend
too much time worrying about the affairs of
distant Europe. They should spend more time
on problems nearer home. For instance, Dr.
Zimmern raised the question of our Oriental
minorities in British Columbia.
Orientals are citizens of this province. They
pay taxes. They are human beings. Their
children are being educated as Canadians. Yet
these Canadians are not given the franchise.
Is that justice?
And yet august Canadian delegates go to
Geneva at public expense and prate about the
rights of Ukrainian minorities in Roumania.
It is time that the thinking people of this province faced the problems nearer home. Dr.
Zimmern's remarks were a well-merited rebuke to our hypocritical self-complacency.
HAIL, U. B. C!
Once again a highly rated prairie Canadian
Rugby team has crossed the mountains in high
hopes of capturing the Hardy Cup, emblematic
of the Western Canada Intercollegiate Canadian Rugby Championship, and still U. B. C.
retains that coveted trophy.
After Varsity's non too spectacular showing in the Big Four league to date this season, many followers of the game went to Ath-
letic,Park on Saturday with considerable misgivings as to the probable results of the contest.
And the impression which the Alberta boys
conveyed when they appeared on the field in
their snappy outfits did not make things look
any better for our representatives. But Doc
Burke's cohorts arose to the occasion in traditional style, and the result was as fine a
game of football as .anyone could ever wish to
see for any money, anywhere, either in Canada
or across the border; it was not a case of our
team getting tthe breaks—it won because it
played even better football than its opponents.
Its members, and its coaches, who have been
faithfully turning out for early morning practices ever since the middle of September, therefor deserve our heartiest congratulations.
It is also in order at this point to comment
on the splendid support which the students and
general public extended to the game, in spite
of the unattractiveness of the weather. Thanks
are also due to those organizations and firms
which helped put the series over. And last but
not least, the vocal support of the students under the leadership of the Pep Club demonstrated the fact that even if it does seem to pine
away at tmes, the good old U. B. C. "University
spirit" is still very much alive.
Today is the 14th of November. There are
approximately twenty more lecture days, and
then lectures will stop and exams will start.
Undoubtedly a tolerably ingenious student who
has been paying more attention to outside activities than to his studies, can go on for nineteen of those days in the same way, cram for
each of his exams the night before, and get
away with a triumphant fifty percent average.
But again, there are a lot of people who will
do this, expecting in all sincerity to get a respectable pass, and find to ther horror that
i/ADV      1
To the illustrator who turned out the tricky
head under which we appear for the first time,
our thanks. We like it, Peter and I, and glance
up at it proudly from time to time as we organize our column.
Lke T. S. Eliot's 'Hollow Men,' there seems
to be something symbolic about it. Those two
terrified apes—Peter and I, no doubt; and the
elephant an enraged public (or professor) rendered vindictive by our quips.
While we're on the subject we might as
well explain this head of ours, something we
should have done long ago.   It comes from
'Cargoes' by John Masefield:
'Quinquireme of Nineveh, from distant Ophir
Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine
With a cargo of ivory, apes and peacocks,
Sandalwood,   cedarwood,   and   sweet   white
That's all. Nothing deep and sinister about
it, really!
When the editor first gave us this column,
he laid certain grave injunctions upon us.
"As well as printing such fish as come to
the net," he said, "you shall givo intelligent
criticism. You shall give praise where praise
is due, and if necessary, condemn."
Winged words those; and, rememberng
them, we begin to be troubled by our editorial
conscience. For our attitude has been too much
that of a placid acceptance. "Ha!" we say to
ourselves, "this contribution if well-stretched
will be good for a folio."
Of course we have tried to criticize now and,
then, but, finding that our words came back
to us with a faintly braying echo, we gave it
up, preferring to let such intellectuals as take
their delight herein do their own criticizing.
Still, a few criticisms of student poetry
might be in order here. The prevailing opinion
among rhymsters of this college at any rate
seems to be th#t the writing of verse is a business requiring no other thought than that incidental to the discovery of rhymes. Result:
many of their productions, while pleasing to
the ear, won't stand a second reading. They
simply dissolve into a flurry of words.
Needless to say, this fault is by no means
confined to students; you will find it in the
work of recognized poets. If you have read
Wilson Macdonald's "Song of the Rebel" or
Alfred Noyes' verses on Swinburne, you may
agree with me in this.
Then there is the matter of sentimentality.
Often the idea appears to be something like
this: "Here is the monkey-man howling for contributions again. Go to now! I shall write him
a poem. I shall consider the ills of the world,
blighted love, and overdue essays until a mood
of gentle melancholy steals over me. Then,
while under the spell of this synthetic emotion,
I shall turn out a paper of verses."
And the verses like the emotions that inspired them, are synthetic—flabby and self-
We receive free verse and rhymed verse in
about equal proportions. While we have a fairly decent working knowledge of the latter, the
former leaves us puzzled. If a free verse contribution is too abstruse for us, we usually
give the writer the benefit of the doubt and run
it; but if we sense a mere lazy attempt to
avoid the task of finding rhymes, we kill it
ruthlessly. You will notice that most of the better-known free-versifiers are quite capable of
handling the older forms as well.
Another characteristic — an amusing one
this time—is the way in which faintly familiar
lines have a way of cropping up. Lots of them
get by us, but we catch the occasional one and
rejoice over it. One poem (we saved it as a souvenir) contained snatches of Fitzgerald, Wordsworth and Rupert Brooke!
"Then," said Peter, reading over my shoulder, "there was the time you yourself cribbed
from Keats. 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty,' "
he said, "and you come out with 'Beauty is
spring, Spring beauty.' Of all the bald robberies—"
And so on until I shut him in the exchange
Like wordiness though, this fault is by no
means confined to student poets. I went to a
literary tea once

Editor, Ubyssey,
Pear Sir:
My suggestion for a name for the
Varsity team is the Varsity "Lions."
Need I explain why?
Editor, Ubyssey,
I note with delight your highly improved edition of Friday, November
10, 1933 and at the same time I also
note your plea for a "Zoological Cognomen." Why not call the U. B. C.
squad in intercollegiate competition
the "Grizzlies"? Not only is it famous
for its fighting ability and stamina in
a good mix-up, but it is amongst the
most cunning of the ursine inhabitants of North America, And so once
more I say, "Why not 'The Grizzlies' "?
Yours truly,
Ernest J. Costain.

How about calling our Varsity In-

Dear Sir:
This issue, which reports the meet

and the speech of Dr. Zimmern,
seems a suitable one in which to
state what seems to your correspondent the most cogent argument against
This is that the Nation-State has
no right greater than the right of the
Family on the one hand, than the
right of the World-State on the other.
To put it concretely, let your readers
think of themselves as the heads of
families that they will be some day:
their country suddenly decides to go
to war, and calls on Mr. A. to enlist
and kill its enemies or be killed. I
contend that it has no such right,
that Mr. A's duties as head of his
family on the one hand, as a citizen
of the world on the other demand
that he refuse to fight. Should he be
killed or maimed his family must
suffer: should he kill or wound other
world-citizens, the World State must
Again, his family is a true unit;
his nation, if a real unit (which is
essentially doubtful), is no more his
unit than is the World-State. His
family interests will never clash with
those of the World-State; their good
is the world's good. On the other
part, his family interests are not coterminous with those of his nation:
his family's food comes from the
world, its education comes from many
nations, its spiritual values come
from a catholic (small c) heritage.
The nation is only a politico! unit of

Before doing any serious exploring
I would like to make a comment on
the new picture that appeared above
this column last week. It is a very
nice picture, a real work of art, but
I feel myself bound to point out a
few mistakes. First I would like to
make a protest at the knees of the
above gentleman, they really do not
resemble my knees a bit. I admit
th artist had no means of knowing
but honestly my knees are neither
bony nor crooked. Secondly, there
has been a grave mistake as to the
gender of the explorer. Still it is a
very nice picture and I think the expression on his face is just "too
sweet.' ' I wish I could really look
as angelic as that but many futile
hours of practising before the mirror
have convinced me that it is impossible.
A Little Color
Over in the Administration Building several interesting things may be
found. This week your explorer discovered the Kardex system which
puts graduates "on the spot" for prosperity. It is a system of cards similar to the one over in the library except the cards lie flat and overlap
leaving about a quarter of an inch
of each card visible. Every graduate
automatically becomes a member of
convocation and there is a card for
every graduate. The cards are arranged in alphabetical order and on
them is record ?d the degrees obtained, the present address of the
graduate and if possible the occupation. If an honor course has been
taken there is th* letter H in a certain square on the visible part of
the card. On the right hand edge
of the card there is often a colored
space. If this space is left blank it
means the graduate lives in Vancouver. If it is pink he is in the province, if bluo in another part of Canada, if green in the states, if red in
England and if purple in foreign
parts. If there is an X in this space
it means Ihe graduate is dead. Thus
by merely running your finger down
the list you can see at a glance the
percentage of graduates who stay in
Original Convocation
The original numbers of Convocation are marked by a C. Convocation had ite beginning in 1912 before
the University had started. It consisted of any graduate from any University in the British Empire who
had resided at least two years" in
B. C. and was willing to pay a two
dollar fee. About two thousand people availed themselves of this privilege so the University began with
a ready made alumnae. The privilege
was withdrawn shortly after the first
class graduated and now except for
the professors who come here from
other   Universities,    only    our   own
graduates can become members of
convocation and be recorded in the
U.B.C. Originality
The system of colors and letters is
original with our University. Other
Universities usually have the more
cumbersome sy_tcm of several indexes, one for addresses, another for
residences and another for degrees.
Because we are younger than other
Universities we can profit by their
mistakes and our system is believed
to be second to none.
Hall U.B.C.
Another innovation is that our records belon. jointly to the Alumnae
Association and to the University. In
some Universities the records are
kept exclusively by the Alumnae Association which is in a very good position to collect the material but due
to impermanence of organization has
difficulty in keeping it. The University on the other hand is able to
house the records but has difficulty
in collecting the material. We have
solved this difficulty by having the
Alumnae Association collect all the
information and housing it in the
Baffled Explorer
A member of the Alumnae is appointed as record secretary. This office is at present occupied by Miss
Abernethy,  assistant registrar.
Besides thc card index there is the
very permanent Convocation Roll. It
consists of two very thick books each
two feet by one and contains all the
information found on the cards.
After thoroughly inspecting the
roll and the cards your explorer decided to try a little original research
on a subject which has interested
her. What becomes of the presidents
of A.M.S. after they graduate? She
was baffled however when after
looking up four names she found
only one had remembered to let the
Alumnae Association know what he
was doing. Miss Abernethy said that
this was her greatest difficulty. Very
few graduates remember to send information as to their whereabouts
and activities to the Alumnae Association. It has required a great deal
of work to make the records as complete as it is. It is to be hoped that
our future graduates will show more
