Alumni Association Cmmpaigning
efor Funds to Equip Gymnasium
Lyle Atkinson, chairman of the Alumni gymnasium colmmlttee, Will ere*
eent a cheek for approximately IMO to undergraduates of the University at
the formal opining of the new U.B.O. gymnasium, Saturday.
The money will be the flrat Installment of the f .,000 objective of the
Alumni campaign to provide equipment for the new gymnasium. Russell
Munn, preeldent A.M.S., will accept the check on behalf of the Unlveralty.
The plan to have the Alumni Sooiety
artist In equipping the new Student's
Snasium first originated at the reft dinner of Students' Counoil
members, held last April, At that time
Russell Muttn pointed out that after
several yeara Of effort the University wae to have a gymnasium, whioh
instead 6f being provided tor by the
Unlveralty, waa to be built by tbe
students themselves.
Alass Mgtsr Sodsty Iscsrpsrsts
The Alma Mater Sooiety, he said,
had become ah incorporated society
under the Societies' Aot ot British
Columbia and through arrangements
with a financial house had floated a
bend Issue of 980,000 to cover the
cost of construction of the gymnasium.
These bonds were to be redeemed
within fifteen years by a (und accumulated by an annual levy of IS for
eaoh undergraduate student
Tho gymnasium was to become a
reality at last, but the $80,000 provided tor the actual building only,
and left no provisions for gymnasium
finis Tb Fain flya
It was at thla point that an appeal
waa made to tho Alumni. At the annual meeting held ln May tbe Alumni
decided unanimously in favor ot asking graduates to provide sufficient
funds for the gymnasium equipment.
To carry out the drive a committee
composed of Mrs. Arthur Lord, Arts
'.I; B_rt Smith, Arta '26; Sydney
Anderson, Sc. '22; and Lyle Atkinson,
Agric. '86, aa chairman, was appointed.
After several meetings, during
which Mary McKee, Arts '86, Arthur
Lord, Arts '28 and Paul Whitley, president of the Alumni Society, were added to the committee, a specific plan
was adopted tor the campaign.
Circular letters were prepared and
mailed ln June to graduates ot U.B.C.
explaining the project and asking tor
donations to the fund. The response
was reasonably good and during the
summer approximately 1400 was subscribed. '
Tho committee realised that the
summer waa an unsuitable time for

Tho subject Is, What is the matter with the Alumni T The anewor 1*. the
Complaints aro frequent that the Alumni Society la dead and tbat the
majority of graduates are not even sufficiently Interested to "pay the yearly
fees or attend Its functions. Efforts are made at intervals, through word of
mouth or the mails, to stir up Alumni spirit tn much the same manner aa
out at tho Unlveralty attempts are made to rouse college spirit through
atrocities known aa pep rallies.
Now, Just as there have always beeu a few choice souls on the campus
who have doubted the efficiency of pep meetings to rouse that intangible
Ideal, pep, so there are, lu the outside world, a few kindred aouls who are
Skeptical of all artificial attempts to stimulate Alumni apirit.
If there,!* a dearth of interest in the Alumni Society amongst graduates
It i« prbbabiy inherited from their previous dearth of interest In the University. Ip Other wordit the eapie state of affairs that makes it necessary to
invelgta itngints into attending football games out ot a sense of duty makes
lt impossible to cefiect thi inlial Alumni fee of a dollar or two trom any but
a minority of tho bachelors of this, that or the other thing.
So (iadatneotaUy, you see, til* present haphasard quality of the Alumni
Society Is attributable to the University. But although the trouble Is thereto
attributable, there la really no blame to be attached anywhere. It is not that
the (acuity I* at fault or that tbe students are at fault It is merely that as
an institution the University bt British Columbia is yet too young to have
attracted a patriotic following. Patriotism flows from traditions imbibed, and
the graduate of the older colleges carry their enthusiasm With them to the
•nd* of the earth.
Rut Juat as surely ss our University rests on the loveliest site in the
world ao will it somo day attain Us traditions, and with them the ardent
aupport of'graduates and undergraduates alike. When that time comes we
" >r*eognise it by the lack of all reference to college or alumni spirit.

President L. 8. Kllnck, When interviewed about the apathy dlsplayed'by
graduate* of th* U.B.C. re their Alma Mater, aald that in hie opinion the
burden ot organisation was. not even*
ly distrlbutod.
"This," he remarked, "was both a
compliment and rather a, serious criticism." it meant that the executive
wae fnnttoning but at the *ome Ume
that it was unable to obtain tie active
co-operation of the Alumhl,
Ai an excellent example of co-operation amend *tud*nt*, Dr, Klinck referred to tha monumental task being
undertaken by Art* '81. Thi* cla*s,
two year* before It expects to graduate, 1* unearthing Information concerning B. C. biatory. adding scholastic treasure to a thesaurus in the use
of future historians.
This instance ot efficient association ot both sexes toward a definite
goal might well be followed by the
graduates in their rather indifferent
attempts to aot ae a united body. Dr.
Kllnck believes.
Prsf. F. *L (. Vssd
"One reason tor graduate apathy,"
said Professor Wood, "I* the (act that
graduate executive* do not show the
same abilities a* they do ae under
graduate*." This, Professor Wood believes, 1* largely du* to tbe pressure
of business and domestic worries.
In criticising the organisation of
graduate activities Professor Wood
declared that "things are too hastily
planned and not built up systematically." "However," he continued,
"there la no reason to suspect disinterest in college affairs." Professor
Wood la of the opinion that graduates outside of .he city are more interested in University affairs than
the average graduate living in Vancouver. "It's a case of absence makes
the heart grow fonder," he said.
Professor Wood ls proud of the
work of the Players' Club ln providing the Ohrtstmaa Play as a medium of contact between the graduates
and undergradutes. "The Christmas
plays," he said, "are always a reunion."

Avoiding the question, "What's
wrong with the U.B.C. Alumni?" with
the adroitness of a registrar of long
experience ln handing out meaningless diplomas in Latin to graduates
on payment of $80, S nley W. Mathews switched to tne problem of
Alumni record* when a*ked for information.
Co-operation between the Alumni
society and some offloe directly connected with the university is essential
for the proper functioning ot such a
aystem, he declared.
Mr. Mathews pointed out that British Columbia ia not alone in having
difficulty in keeping tab on its graduate*.
"All attempts I know ot in other
universities to keep Alumni records
apart from the university heve been
(allures," he said, "And any attempt*
to keep record* purely by the Alumni
have been (allure*."
He pointed out that th* Alumni i*
composed of widely separated classes,
and to function properly there must
be some bond of union. A workable
•ystem of complete Alumni record*
should go far to establish such a
bond, he declared.

"I have had Very Utile touch with

Women's Union building was bttllt
by th* Alumni Society. Ofaduhtoe do

To get an Idea of undergraduate criticism of th* Alumni Society, two
undergraduate* w«r* Interviewed.
Russ Munn, preeldent A.M.S., think*
that graduate* ahould organise Into
subsidiary cluba similar to those' of
the undergraduate society. "If they
would do this, they would have something to draw them together," he said,
suggesting the various athletlo olub*
and debating organisations.
Mr. Munn further advocates that
the Alumni society allow Into Its membership all students who have been
forced to withdraw from university
before graduating through reasons
other than academic.
"So far as getting in touch with
the university, the Alumni are dead,
that's all," declared Rod Pllkington,
editor ot the U.B.C. publicationi,
when asked what was wrong with the
Mr. Pllkington pointed out that an

He mad* clear, however, that the

Dr. William* suggMtod that a e_aall

In such a way graduate*, might help

Phil Barratt needs no introduction

Brockton Point wouldn't seem natural
without Phil's fiamlng hair and hard

Aylwin, Murray and Mason. These
lads get full value for their cents
every time they step on the scales
and possess a speed which makes
Bobby Gaul* feel Jealous. Besides their
speed, they all three possess another
wonderful attribute, that ot being
able to find their opponents' shins
from almost any angle. A lot depends
on these boys on Monday.
Bstabrook, the Galloping Ghost, Is
the veteran of a thousand rugby
games yet shows no Indications of
wear. Besides being fatit, Esty puts
an awful amount of avoirdupois behind each straight-arm. When he gets

Varsity Rugby players are all agog
this year about the promised trip to

B.C. ruggers have heard rumors of

So far, nothing definite has been
decided, but a tentative prqgram bus

They will probably stop off In Winnipeg to play the first game. The next
contests will very likely be played In

For the benefit of those who are interested to tha extent ol perusing this papef, some explanations ot the "whys and wherefores" of Its
purpose will prove of little value to the patient reader. First and foremost, let It be understood that it is published entirely by the Rugby
Club of U.B.C. for all students intending to baok the team on Thanksgiving day. In the flrat match for the MoKeohnle Cup and to give their
whole-hearted support.
We do not wish, we cannot wish, to decide your minds by an eloquent display of Bnglish, because to do that is not the motive. We are
merely endeavoring in the beat way possible to put before you the
situation and sincerely hope you will take it seriously, It is indeed a
task, to stir up enthusiasm or muster college spirit, But we oan explain
why there is so little pep, point out the need of it and tell you what it
means when it is given by every student and given spontaneously.
Nine atudenta out of every ten will say that there li no pip or
whoopee or college spirit heny—they don't suppose there ever will be.
They will tall you of the football games at Washington and Stanford,
how thousands are turned away from the "bowl," thousands who would
give a lot to see five minutes of play. Tntf will tell you of the student
band, the special stunts and a soore of othif equally astounding fact*,
lt ia true, every word of it. Why do they do it t How do they manage
itf Tbe answer Is simple. Everybody realisee what the teams oan do If
they have staunch support. No matter sow heen the team, li Is bound
to play better, to flgtit its hardeet when they hair thii fellow atudeMs
cheering them on, keen es the players themselves, to aee them cross the
line and win the game. Why oannot U.B.C. do it? Ifc oan, but not ty

ig up to every individual to shot hli or her worth. Let the Freshmen
show the university what they we made of aad attend tbe game "en
masse," Let them put themselves "on the map" at the university as a
olttss poaaeeaed of vigor and loyalty, and demonstrate their idea of epilog* spirit aa regards anticipation In aupport. Let them swell the parade
through the town on Monday by providing the larger httmber at egrs
and as they pass on tbe Why to the Point let everybody know what lit
la ill about. They may be condemned aa rah-rah Froshmen, but it is
Collide Spirit nevertheless,
And finally, a word about the team. This year hie eclipsed ell
Srevlous seasons in the number that have turned out to make tne flint
f teen. Competition is at a peas and there ia an abundance of material
to ohoose from. T_*ey have practiced frequently and faithfully, early
morning and afternoons, rain and shine. They are looking forward to
the afternoon of the eleventh, confident of showing the Ren. that there
is still an uncorked store of gameness and dash/Varsity1, proverbial
qualities. They expect to be backed—and backed. They have done well
their share. Let all roads lead to Brockton next Monday afternoon.

Unaware ot the pandemonium that
raged on the far aid* oi the auditorium curtain, scores of Frosh waited
through long intervals between the
acts in order to get their first insight
Into Home-coming hilarities in the
auditorium last night.
Four acts by the Musical Sooiety,
Arts '83, Arts '88 and the Society of
Thoth, wore presented to th* appreciative audience.
The Mualoal Society staged a comic
operetta with a pathatio ending during which the hero and heroine dived
into the ooean with resounding
Arts '88 gave a realistic representation of "Kouncil iu Konolave"
wherein olympian foibles were exploited to tho full,
Th* Frosh orchestra and a bevy ot
girls reminiscent of ths "Strand"
spsotacles formed th* Freshman contribution to th* gaiety of grads.
The Society of Thoth presented ita
Royal Bgyntien Ballat In a spectacular rendering ot the story of "Anthony and Cleopatra" starring W. O.
Smith. Himi* Koshevoy and Fabian
Underhlll. An Egyptian army, a legion
of Romans and a ononis of dancing
girls with a Nubian buttor completed
the oast.
Following the Thoth Ballet, Brlc
North announced the show at an end
and the Frosh departed. Rehearsing
continued far into the night, until
all skits had been put through their
te FhefHtships Stressed
i, A specious argument in favor of a
college course IS that college is a
good place tor making friend*. This
may or may not bs true, depending
largely upon tbe, attitude* of win*
somenesa and response oa the part
of all concerned, but th* premise
often holde a corollary which 1* far
trom lovely. Suoh friends, a man
goes on to add, will stand him in
good stood in later lit*; and with
tbi* value in mind he goe* out to win
th* friendohlp of those who later will
stand him in good stead. Not a lovely
picture this of a man scurrying about
the campus to stake out his claim*
before the belt ones ar* taken. We
instinctively f*«l that something is
not fitting in auch a picture, and a
momeut'* aualytols show* us why.
Friendship, Ilk* the best values of
life, must be sought as aa end in Itself, a ssouMthlng intrinsically worth
while. The minute I realise tbat a
man seeks my friendship for some
ulterior end, true friendship becomes
sn impossibility. For the fullest give
and take between us there must be
an unshakable confidence that friendship is sought alon* for friendahlp's
sake. Can you imagine a worse college than one filled with students
who are each struggling to make
those friendships which will later
prove to be most beneficial ln the
active life after graduation? To be
sure, colloge friendships often prove
to be moat helpful. But this beneficence should be expected as a byproduct. Don't go to college to make
friends; a tar truer aim for a college
course lt to be a friend.

Ot Import to China
Trans-Pactflc cables have been humming lately with a variety of war-like
news from China. Disputes with Russia over Manchuria and revolts on the
part of discontented generals fill the
column* of tho daily press until the
most optimistic might w*ll despair of
the coming of the peaceful times that
will be needed before China oan carry
out her adjustment with the Western
world. Yet one Inconapicuoua article
In the papers ot yesterday probably
contains more of real Import for the
future of China than all tbe fluctuations of her political troubles. That
was the opening of ths Vouching University.
Harvard men hav* an eapeelal la*

Istsst introduction of modern educational method* Into th* Orient in view
of the formation of the Harvard-Yen-
chlng Institute last year which led
to the reorganisation and •xpauslon
of th* Chin*** Department In the
University. It has been frequently
pointed out that there ere vast stores
of knowlsdge of an older civilisation
than any in the Occident that are all
but ignored in tbe West. But of even
more Importance is the spread of
Hurooean institution* and culture to
the Bast.
The inevitability of thla pfocees l*
a bitter pill to swallow for thos* tow
members of our own civilliatlou that
appreciate the true values lying beneath the chaos that prevail* ip China
to-day. But with transportation dad

not be long delayed, and It may be

It may turn oot for the best For the

students to go away for one week-end
a month. I consider that sufficient and
I believe that Yale Unlveralty or any
other University, either men or women ( would do well to follow auch a
It is quite evident that President
MacCracken's well-meaning remarks
are better without much practical
experience as to the hablta and
customs of undergraduates. Although
law-abiding for the most part with
respect to university regulations, a
restriction such as that suggested by
Vassal"* president would not only
meat with general disapproval but
many means of evading it would
rapidly be found.
In addition to tbe question of ineffective enforcement, there would be
the bigger problem of an undergraduate body united against a faculty.
For the** reeeeas we believe that so
hampering restrictions should b* employed In the "Back to New Haven"
drive, an dtbat th* freedom and in*
dependence which ha* long been part
of a college man'a oar**r ahould continue uninterrupted.

In a friendly game played Wednesday on the Varaity field Varaity Juniors trounced the Anglican College
soccerites to the tune of 8*0. The
game was played in very ragged
fashion and was featured more by the
admirable defenalve tactic* ot the
A.T.O. than by any skill on the part
of Varsity. The match produced the
long sought centre forward tn Dickson wbo bagged two goal*. He was
well supported by Cox while Smith
played a good game at back.

Bloomlngton, Indiana, October 17.—
All day Wednesday a bottle of genuine
Cook's Gold Bloom beer was displayed
on the Indiana campus within the
sight and grasp ot everyone who
paaaed—and nobody even auapnoted tt.
The bottle that attracted so much
attention and so little suspicion was
tied to a sign in front of Wylle hall
advertising the Alpha Chi Sigma
smoker. Hundreds of students passed
It by and bluahed at the sight of tho
bottle but never realised the trick
their cynicism was playing upon thorn.
