Opportunity Knocks
To-day at the Alma Mater meeting a proportion will be
made by the Students' Council that, if It la supported, should
secure a stadium for the University of British Columbia. A
•tadlum must be built in Vancouver for the Olympic trials In
1932, and the plan ls to tret student authority for an offer of
$10,000 towards the expense of construction, if the university is
chosen aa the site.
The university needs a stadium, and the time to make a
bid for It la now. If .this opportunity Is lost, there Is no likelihood that another will occur for many years. No selfish or local*
lied Interest should be allowed to obstruct such an important
need, lite university has suffered before from a diffident silence
—tht stakes are too high to permit it this time.
Mayor Malkln made some hopeful remarks a little more
than a week ago which brightened U.B.C. prospects considerably. As an alternative to the Indian Reserve (which apparently Is not being considered further), he was quoted as favoring
thla campus as a stadium site. 'The University has to have a
itadtum some day," was the way he expressed it. Now, out of
A clear sky, sudden and very powerful pressure has been exerted
/ In favor or Little Mountain, and indiciations are that this counterattack may win the day, unless there is some opposition.
This latest development, the "Ubyssey" belives, is shortsighted policy designed for the benefit of a minority group. It
ia true we are not altogether disinterested ourselves in pressing
for a university stadium, but, in all sincerity, Vancouver as a
whole would benefit aa much as we. The competition of inter-
colleglate and international teams in Vancouver will bring gains
to the city In advertising and prestige, as well as in dollars and
cents, which cannot accrue If the university has no*campus athletic home.
The students of this province have found that if they want
things they must work for them. Doting governments and
philanthropic millionaires are but myths in this f_rSr*land. The
present buildings on the campus were erected following a great
atudent campaign, and the gymnasium was financed by the
Alma Mater Society. Once again the students must act if they
are to get what they want. A great effort must be made to secure the stadium, and every individual must support that effort.
The Council's plan to raise $10,000 should be endorsed.
Co-eds to Sponsor
Fall Fashion Show
The policy of the year 1930-31 was
outlined and discussed at tbe semiannual meeting of the Women's Undergrad held in the Auditorium Wednesday noon. The executive for the
year was also introduced.
Tbe main point of difference between the policy of last year and
that of this, is that instead of the
usual fall Bridge to raise funds for
the Women's Union Building, the
Women's Undergrad is sponsoring a
Fashion Show, at Hudson's Bay. The
date has been set for November 1,
and the tickets, limited to 450, are to
be 76c. Tea, as well as the costumes
used, will be supplied by Hudson's
The new form of initiation used this
year has proved so successful that It
has been decided to recommend it to
the new executive. It was also decided
to carry on the Senior-Freshette Idea
and the Big Sister teas. No admission will be charged for High Jinks
this year.
Four out-of-town teas have been
planned by the executive of each of
the classes. These are for the purpose
of making the out-of-town girls
acquainted with others in their own
class. The executive will also give a
tea for the Faculty Women's Club.

Student Campaign
To Raise Funds
For Stadium
For the purpose of discussing the
Stadium project, a special Council
meeting was held on Tuesday. It was
decided that the Students' Council ap*
nroach the Alma Mater Society, ask*
Ing them to pledge themselves to
raise the sum of $10,000 towards the
initial unit of a stadium to be built
on the campus.
The semi-annual Alma Mater meeting is to be held on Friday, October
10, and the pep meeting scheduled for
that day is to be held on Saturday,
October 11.
The latest move in the stadium
question li taken as a result of the
action of the City Council in practically deciding on Little Mountain as
the site of the 1032 Canadian Olympic
trials. Hopes were held that this
stadium might be erected on the
campus, but the idea was not approved by the City Council,
Charles Schultz, President of the
Men's Athletic is strongly in favor of
a student campaign. He believes
that $10,000 could be raised by the
students themselves to form the nucleus of a fund to be collected among
friends of the University In Vancouver. The matter will be discussed at
the Alma Mater meeting today.
U.B.C. To Stage
Crucial Match
Raffle to Finance Prairie Trip
With an opportunity to take a
strangle hold on the key position in
the Big Four League, the Varsity
Canadian Rugby team is preparing
for a tough game with the Meralomas on Saturday at Athletic Park.
The orange and black squad showed
plenty of fight to beat the Westminster Wildcats and in the opinion of
the student moguls is the outfit to
beat in order to win the LIpton Cup.
An added attraction at the game
will be the raffle of a "Million Dollar"
car, which will go to the holder of
the winning number st half-time. The
general idea is as follows; tickets for
the game are being sold on the campus at fifty cents, half a dollar or
what-have-you and entitle the holder
to see the struggle and a chance en
the "car," the total proceeds to be
used in financing the Canadian Rugby
trip to the prairies. For the benefit
of the Frosh, let it be known that the
Hardy Cup, emblematic of the Intercollegiate Grid Championship of
Western Canada is at present reposing peacefully in the Trophy case in
the Library. The journey east will
constitute the endeavour of U.B.C. to
retain the coveted "mug" for another
The students will send as strong
an aggregation against the Clubbers
as has been seen in these parts for
some time. Captain Robert Hamilton
(Sandy) Smith will be functioning at
snap with Jim Winters, Ernie Peden
and Roger IIager at inside. Harold
Cliffe, Larry Jack and Bill Willis-
croft will use their avoirdupois to
smear opposing middles while Dick
Larrington, Cam Duncan and Lyle
Jestiey will again alternate at wing.
Dick Moore and Don Lycemon are the
flying wings.
Tho backfleld will probably be the
same as last week. (Javin Dirom will,
ns usual be the mainstay of tbe halves,
with Bill LatU, the smooth line-
plunglrig artist working beside him.
Fred Bolton has been going well this
year and will give the funs plenty
of thrills with his tricky broken field
work, while Jack Wulmsley, Jnck
Steele, Louis Chodat and Kd. Johnson
are all dependable ball handlers.
Cordon Root and Scotty Mclnnes will
cull   signals.

best poem, five dollars for the
best "short—short story" or literary essay. The contest Is
open to all undergraduates of
the University except the staff
nf the Literary Supplement.
Three plays, written by students,
reached this year n high enough
standard to be produced at the annual
Christmas performance of tho University Players' Club. This event It
unique in the history of U.B.C. considers Professor F. G. C. Wood. Never
before since the Players' Club started
offering an annual prise for an original drama has the standard both in
quantity and quality been as high aa
this year.
The winner of the contest Is Sydney
Risk who submitted a tragedy entitled
"Fog." The following received honorable mention—names not in order of
merit—Sally Carter, Byron Edwards,
Alice Neil, and Alfred Evans. Besides Sydney Risk's play, "Trees" by
Sally Carter and "Finesse" by Byron
Edwards will be staged at Christmas.
The fourth play Is "The Florist Girl,"
a revival of one of the most famous
Players' Club Christmas productions.
At a meeting on Thursday noon,
new members were officially welcomed
and old ones greeted by the president,
Win Shllvock. He urged co-operation
and described the functions of the

The Frosh Reception, the flrst social
event of the year, will be held at the
Auditorium tonight at 8 o'clock. According to custom this dance will be
strictly informal and groups of students will attend together. As the
Frosh marks the close of the Initiation it will be necessary for freshmen
and freshettes to wear their berets
and placards, the door keeper being instructed to refuse admittance
to any Frosh not wearing his beret
and placard. During the course of
the evening these will be discarded
and Frosh will emerge as full undergraduates.
A departure from previous years
will be made this year in that there
will be an admittance fee for the first
time in the history of the University.
The Frosh only will be exempt from
this charge

An Alma Mater meeting is to be held to-day. Information haa reached
tht "Uby-aey" that * small jrroup of atudenta intend to make a motion, at
that meeting, censuring the StudentH* Council for ita stand nn Initiation. If
tht motion Is passed it will practically entail the resignation of Council,
Tha facts are these: at an A.M.S. meeting in March the students voted
to repeat thla fall tha Initiation program held laat year. The faculty Com*
mlttea had advised the retiring Council not to include this In Its recom*
mtndatlons to the new Council The new Council decided that it would
be inadvisable to have an official Snake Parade, knowing that the A.M.S.
funda art fully needed to finance student activities, and feeling that no
risks of heavy lawsuits arising out of Snake Parades should be run. Last
year several suits were threatened, and one, settled out of Court, cost the
A.M.S. hundreds of dollars.
A new Council is not obliged to take all recommendations made by Its
predecessors. The student government should carry out the wishes of the
Alma Mater Society, but It must be allowed to exercise initiative and discretion of Its own. In this matter of an official Snake Parade the "Ubyssey"
believes that the Council acted wisely and In the best Interests of the Society.
The passing of a motion of censure would be almost certain to mean
the resignation of the Students' Council, a body that has so far shown itself
conscientious, capable, broad-minded, and, in short, as good a Council as
the University has ever had. No short-sighted policy advanced by high-
pressure speakers should be allowed to Interfere with It. Affairs now demand the close attentions of those who understand them and are experienced
In office. The Council deserves the support of the students and the "Ubyssey"
believes that this will be forthcoming.
". . . introductions are not necessary," we read concerning
the Frosh reception. Since the dance signalizes the end of
Initiation and the transformation of the Freshmen into full-
fledged University men and women the prospect of an informal
mingling of students of all years is a delightful one. Unfortunately, however, this is one of those theories which "do not work
out in practice."
Year after year the Freshmen are exorted to dance with
whom they please. The Senior utters grand and fatherly advice
in this line only to clothe himself in the most frigid dignity himself. No one but a ventursome Sophomore dares to approach a
timid Freshette, turn her around and get her name, introduce himself and dance.
This is a pity because if such informality is not to be found
in a co-educational university where can one expect it? Since
no revolutionary remedy presents itself, even to the editorial
mind, we can only hope that Arts '34, being a superior lot generally, will do their part to make the Reception enjoyable.
Lengthy Program
Planned by I.R.C.
Nine undergraduates were elected to
membership in the International llelu-
lions Club at a well-attended meeting
held Wednesday evening in the S.C.M.
Room. This brings tlie active membership ol' the Club to UO.
A very interesting evening of discussion centred around reviews of books
which have been presented to the Club
by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Miss Helen Barr discussed "Soviet Training in Soviet Russia" by Samuel N. Harper, stressing the
great amount of militant educational
propogunda which is circulated, and the
ultra-modern tendencies in government
and organization. "Where the East Begins," « series of articles bv Hamilton
Fish Armstrong, was the subject of the
review by Miss Freda Lasser. This
treats with the advances of western civilisation into the Balkans, and many of
the problems of domination by outride
nations ns well as internal changes. An
interesting insight into Wwin's "Labor
and Internationalism" was given by
Miss Margaret Black, who made s'lectid
reference lo the conneetions between
International Labor Organizations and
the n nest ion of International IVace.
Stimulating discussion followed each review. These three books, as well ns
several others, are available to every
student of Ihe I'niversity through the
I. It. C  Reserve Sheif

the form of a sup'ier meeting in I'ninn

O. Fallis of Canadian Memorial Chapel,
wbo will address Ihe Club on "Imptcs-
sions of Kinope." Mr. I'ldlis has recently returned from a tour of Kurope, and

In connection with the Snake Parade
on Initiation Night, it was noised abroad
that this event was being staged in defiance of the orders of the Faculty Committee on .Student Affairs, and city
papers printed statements to that effect.
Such, however, was not the case. Even
the "I'byssey" was misled, and in its
Inst issue said editorially that Faculty
interference in lliis matter was not in
accord with tlie principle of student self-
If the Faculty had wanted to interfere
in the initiation plans, il would have done
so either through the President or the
Faculty Council. This Council is the
highest disciplinary authority in the
I'niversity, and consists of the President,
the Deans, and the Senior member of
each faculty. It holds its authority
from the Senate.
The faculty Committee on Student
Affairs, unjustly accused of giving orders
about the Snake Parade, is solely an
advisory hotly, acting us an intermediary
between the Students' Council and the
higher authorities. It may advise again.t
a Students' Council measure, and if the
Counoil is not satisfied, a Joint Committee meets, on which the students can
command a majority vote.

The wisely Anonymous concootor of
the er-lucubrations, that take up the
space left on page two after the editorials
have been squeesod in, confesses thiu it
has never heard of Hunt home ami has*
ards a wild guess about "Pilgrim's Progress."
We recommend that it road (lllbert's
"Patience" or consult the Literary
Editor who seems to have soma occult
connections with tbo aforesaid anonymous vii|>orlngs.
This latter undeituind nexus, as wit*
nessed by tbe foot note to the last spasm
ol blurbs, hus pussled me greatly. How
the official campus agent of the Muse
can allow her name to Im associated with
the gushitigs of thin unknown poetaster
is u queation that should trouble even
the English department. Can it he that
sho is one of the chorus of "rapturous
maidens" who are known to have wor-
shi|>ed Mr. Reginald Buntborne?
Dear 11. A. P.:
This column "Spirit Mappings" has
certainly intensified tho demand for the
"Ubyssey." Last Tuesday two copies
were stolen from tne while 1 turned my
back to greet a friend—so I take it that
fair means aud foul are afoot to let no
copy be wasted.
1 should appreciate yout calling attention to the deploruble state of affairs
in this University whieh tiermits of such
iniquitous petty thieving.
Yours, etc.,
A toy si us,
I am delighted to receive a real testimonial from an admirer but am afraid
he has no conception of tbe 'honor'
system.   Although protesting about petty
Kilfering he admits that he possessed
imself of two copies of tbe "Ubyssey."
Now, under the Code, each student is
allowed but one copy. As for iniquitous
petty thieving, it bus its advantages
especially when the Pub. staff runs short
of tobacco.
R. A. P.
You think you're clever, dont you?
Well, I think you're simply horrid.
The idea of thinking that that was me

"Oho, my good friend Oscar seems to
lie surprised, chuckled ('hang Suoy,
rubbing his hand* together.
"You can't surprise me; I am a

"Oh yniihr sneered the Chinaman.
"What about that 'sup' in Math. One?'1

1 was unarmed und I knew that he al*

to read my thoughts.
"There is no use trying to escape,
my dear friend," be murmured. "1 have
half a do.on faithful henchm.n in the

1 sank down on a chair.
"What are you going to do?"
A slow smile slid across his face.
"Now you're asking. Well, my friend
1 will tell you. It may comfort you to
know my plans when you begin to die
in about half an hour's time.
"Shoot us tbe dojie," 1 said, my re-
portoriul training overcoming my fear.
"Have you ever heard of the Crime
Wave?" ho queried.
"Sure," I nodded back, "that's when
they celebrate the founding of Chicago."
''Of course you do not know," he
continued. "1, Chung Suoy, have invented a machine for transmitting crime
waves. Perhaps you doubt me, yes?
Well, my friend, do not forget that 1
received the degree of D. O. at Laif Bol,
the University in Hangchow. Now my
machine sends out what may be called
cerebral vibrations, which may be focus-
sed in any direction or distance. When
a ray of cerebral vibrations or crime
waves is concentrated upon a person,
that person, even if he were a S.C.M.
president would become an active criminal. In other words, my good Oscar,
my crime waves create and stimulate
criminal tendencies within the mind,
by means of an oscillation in the ether
which acts upon the cells of the brain.
I am explaining this carefully, my good
Seribbleweil, because I know you have
been at the university for four years
and are not used to doing any thinking
for yourself."
Disregarding his sneer,  1 questioned.
"Can this crime wave act ut any distance?"
"Of course. It is an ether vibration
of tremendous frequency. Its range is
unlimited. It can pass through all objects no matter what their material, even
a Freshman's head. There is only this
limitation, it has to be focussed directly

a faint green glow about a foot in diameter. It is so faint that it can be
noticed only in the dark. At other times
there is absolutely no way of detecting
the crime wave."
"Great Scot!" 1 gasped, as the full
possibilities of the nefarious machine began to dawn on me. "Migosh, what are
you going to do with it?"
"Plenty, Oscar, plenty," replied the
imperturbable Chung Suey, "but first
there are one or two points regarding
the biochemical effect of tlie ray upon
metabolism of the cerebellum that 1
wish to investigate; and 1 look to you
for assistance, my good friend."
He smiled again, slowly and horribly.
"How can 1 assist you'.'"
The man's smile was unnerving me.
Chang Suey made no response, but

It seems that last year the M.A.A.
decided that Varsity's starving athletes did not need refreshment at half
time. Of course if we did not know
these lads we would immediately de*
cide that they had never stepped on
a football Held in their sweet and
stainless    lives.    How   an   executive
Bosition changus a man's view point!
lowever the English Rugby Club was
lucky enough to find someone with
spirit to supply the deficiency. This
was Mr. Ledingham, father of the
irreproachable Glen. Mr. Ledlngham
realised apparently that the ruggers
needed Home kind of refresher between
the halves and always provided a
large sack of oranges. On Saturday
he did the same thing. This is meant
to be a recognition of what Mr.
Ledingham haa dont for the Club and
the Interest he takes In Varaity athletic*. Yat personally I wonder what
he thinks of the Varaity athletic
authorities, who refuse to supply
their teama with auch necessities. I
fear we have rather a cheap name

their own suits. Practice nights will be
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8.00 to
10.00 p.m. in the Chalmers tank. Membership fee of $3.00 to pay for couch is

Hockey Women to Feature
Two Gaines Saturday
The women's grass hockey will play
two games on Saturday at 2.30 and 3.30
at Memorial Park against Ex-North
Van, and Ex-South Van. A list of the
players will be put in tbe quad. These
teams are not permanent.
On Thursday a large number of players
turned out for the practice at Connaught
Park. With the new players and those
who have played before U.B.C. has high
hopes for two good teams.
Next Monday at 3.30 there will be a
class for beginners on the Soccer field.

Boat Club States
Policy For Year
The University Boat Club held its
first meeting of the season last Wednesday when an ambitious program
was outlined to an enthusiastic gathering. Since the Varsity Club haa no
boat house, the Vancouver Rowing
Club has kindly consented to let the
University oarsmen use its premises,
and also two lapstreak IV's to supplement the two VIII's given to the
local University by the University of
This year there is prospects of a
three-cornered race with Washington
and Oregon University crews in
Seattle next March. If this intercollegiate race is obtained, tho club will
try to inaugurate an Inter-colleglate
program on a big scale the next year.
The annual Crew Day, which will
be held In the same month, will Include races against crews from the
Vancouver Rowing Club. It is hoped
that a IV will again be sent this year
against the James Bay athletic Association during the Victoria invasion.
The  Arts-Science race will  take
filnce during the Alumni Home-corn-
ng celebration, and the engineers arc
out to avenge their defeat of the last
two years.
Colthurst was elected sub-treasurer
to assist in collecting fees which
must be secured at once. A committee,
consisting of C, Madsen, K. Telford
and J. Larsen, was elected to help
the vice-president in securing active
and non-active members of the club
for the coining season. It is hoped
that the Boat Club will be able to
secure some new equipment this
year, as the two VIII's are not in good
A much greater interest is being
shown in rowing this year, for there
are large turnouts at the V. R. C.
boat house every Wednesday and
Saturday afternoons. A keen rivalry
for positions in the Senior VIII should
make this crew the best that has ever
represented Varsity.
There will only be one change in
the lineup of the Varsity Senior Soccermen when they meet   South   Hill
tomorrow at Wilson Park.
Todd  (A) will be out for several
weeks     with     injured
ankle   and   his   place
at inside left   will   be
taken   by   his   brother
Todd (D).
Roberts who was injured last week was unable to   turn   out   for
practice but will  be fit
for  tomorrow's  game.
Costain will again lead
the line after the form
he   has   been   showing
Ern.r-4 Rob.ru with Broadhurst at inside right.
The team will line up as follows:
McGregor; Roberts, Chalmers; Wright

"Many students fail to understand
the meaning of our extension service,"
is the statement of Miss Ethel Bryce,
Washington State college librarian.
The service is not in the form of a
traveling library, nor has it uny relation to the college of agriculture extension department*.. Contrary to
common belief it is a system in which
outside patrons may have the services
of an expert reference librarian in
answer to specific requests.
The entire resources of the library,
with tbe exception of reserve and reference books, ure used for this work,
which amounts to nearly 5000 culls a
year. Requests from approximately
1.0 schools of this state, in addition
to those of numerous club women und
Individuals, are taken care of every
Besides the regular library purchases, material for this work is secured by individual donations and

Choosing A Profession
Is Dean s Subject
Noon-hour talks by Applied Science
professors on "Choosing a Profession"
will be resumed this year. The first
lecture, dealing with general topics,
will be given by Dean Brock, Tuesday,
October 14, in Applied Science 102 at
12.26 noon.
The purpose of this series of talks
is to give freshmen a conception of
the different vocations for which
traning is offered in the University
and to enable the Frosh to make an
intelligent choice of a profession.
With the idea of fostering friendly
inter-class rivalry on the campus and
lo further the interest in soccer at
the University the members of the
Varsity Football Club last year contributed the money for the purchase
of a suitable trophy, Accordingly the
Soccer Cup was put up for annual

Mid-terms have come and gone, and
the Honor System has functioned or
has not functioned as the case may be,
but the question still remains as to
whether ouch a system is workable
or merely theoretical?
Many colleges have discussed the
question and in some cases have
abolished the Honor Syetem. The
main objections seem to be that students will not report violations, fraternities will in most cases refuse to
testify or convict a brother, and that
the system is not held in respect
either by undergraduates or by the
One writer feels that the Honor
System is a failure because of the
general attitude of college students
toward education, and their worship
oi the "great god sheepskin."
Grades asume an abnormal importance. "Students do anything to
get them, cheating if necessary. Professors contribute to the evil by pedantic emphasis on the quiz, stressing petty details and 'catch' questions."
"Until we have a class of students,
wbo come to college to develop their
brains and not their bank accounts,
the 'weak sister' will succumb to a
temptation to cheat. The breeding
of this type of student hinders the
introduction of a system that encourages personal freedom, initiative, and j
self-development." [
When grades cease to be nil important, and students are more in-1
terested in their subjects than they !
are in section leaders, they will not
care under what system they take
their examinations! But as long as
things are as they are, and no other
system would probably be any more
successful, we might just as well keep
the Honor System and try to make it
