Great Enthusiasm Shown at Last
Meeting Before the
The Mass Meeting held last Friday,
noon, was one of the biggest, best,
and most enthusiastic held this session. Brick McLeod, Varsity's yell
leader, opened the meeting with Kitsilano, then followed the Arts, Science,
and Aggie yells, and "We ain't no
government's darling." Mr. Meekison,
Varsity's yell king in the past, finished the yell episode with another rendering of "Kitsilano."
Friday's meeting was held to complete the arrangements for Saturday's program. Mr. Richards stated
that although Saturday closed Campaign Week, this did not mean our efforts should cease. The campaign
work would still go on. He then
thanked the student body for the
splendid support given throughout the
Mr. Percy Barr, vice-chairman of
the campaign committee, stated that
at a meeting of the Women's Liberal
Association a resolution in favor of
the new University passed unanimously. Premier John Oliver gave a
speech, and what he said was by no
means discouraging. "There are three
problems which will come before the
government; (1) the liquor question;
(2) the P. G. E. question, and last but
not least, the question of a new University." said the Premier.
Mr. J. Allardyce, President of the
Alumni stated that the fight had began in earnest last spring, the campaign had been a strenuous one, but
there had been considerable and decided progress made. The Alumni
are strongly behind us. Mr. Allardyce
in closing congratulated the Executive and student body for the splendid work done; he stated he had never
worked with a committee so willing,
keen, and energetic.

The Significance of the Cairn
Addresses by  Mr. Allardyce and   Mr. Richard.
The cairn has been erected, not as
a monument either to the Campaign
Committee or to the student body, but
to mark now and for all time one of
the biggest events in the history of
our University, the building of a real
and permanent home at Point Grey.
A mile-stone in the history of our University it is—yes, and something more.
It marks one of the greatest efforts
ever put forward by an undergraduate
body in support of its University, an
effort which will only end when our
object is  attained.
Upon the scholastic attainments of
our members, and the researches of
our professors will depend the ranking of our University and the development of our province. But if we
are to stand among the best, if we are
to develop the resources of our province, we must have room for our work
and apparatus with which to work.
Who should better understand these
needs than our Alumni? Let us not
be satisfied with a University established in a permanent home. Rather
let the cairn be a reminder not only
to us but to those who follow of what
can be done. Let us widen our objective and make U. B. C. a University among universities.
Our slogan during Varsity Week
was "Build the University."
We, the students, are building and
completing the first unit in the permanent plans of our University.
The work that we are doing is
significant of the hope that the people
to whom we appeal and the Government who represent them will carry
on this work.
We hope that very soon around our
Cairn of rock buildings will rise and
a University be established which
will bring glory and honor to our
Alma Mater and renown to our Prov
ince and Dominion.
The building of the Cairn to me is
full of meaning. It stands for the
combined efforts of 1,178 students.
Each rock represents a personal contribution in a worthy and just cause.
As the mason with his trowel shapes
and cements the rocks together into
a complete and unified whole so the
Campaign has bound the student
body together by a bond as strong
as   the   very   granite   itself.
Let the Cairn stand then, not for
dedication, not as a memorial to our
efforts but as a landmark for the
To our successors let it be emblematic of a united student body. May it
bring glory and honor to our Alma
On Saturday afternoon every student of the University participated in
the construction of what will become
the first completed unit in the permanent plan of the University at Point
Grey. The Memorial Cairn, made of
native rock, will occupy a point at
the summit of the hill. which overlooks the waters of English Bay and
faces the majestic outline of the
Squamish Mountains.
Firmly embedded at the base of the
memorial tablet a roll of. parchment
will be fixed recording the efforts of
the students in the campaign and the
51,000 signatures of people who desire
the immediate construction of the
permanent University buildings. The
fact that each unit which will enter
into the construction of the cairn was
handled by a student and represented
a personal contribution to the students' drive is not without a certain
The dedication of the cairn marked
the close of a Varsity week which for
enthusiasm and concrete ; achievment
is unequalled in the annals of U. B. C.
The admirable manner in which all;
details in connection with the pilgrimage were attended to was but charac-,
teristic of all undertakings in which
the Publicity Committee has been engaged since the commencement of the
campaign. Too much credit cannot
be given to Buck Buchanan, the Marshall, and his aides, Hugh Russell,
Jock Lundie and Bob Hedley for the
efficient manner in which they performed their duties.
The women of the University covered  themselves with  glory.    Tramping the whole distance from the end

In spite of the many demands upon
his time, the Chancellor gave up his
entire afternoon on Saturday to go
with the student body to the Point.
When interviewed by Mr. A. E. Richards, he declared that he wus enthusiastic over the whole proceeding,
which he considered a splendid achievement. The full meaning of the
stone cairn was not realized now, he
said. In twenty years whe^ the students who built it had reached full
manhood and womanhood, the cairn
would bring back many happy and inspiring memories. It was significant
of what united effort could do. THE     UBYSSEY

they arrived at the Point only a short
time after the men. Their approach
was marked by a roar from the men
who had by that time climbed the
gaping structure known to some as
Stonehenge. On their arrival they
were accorded a hearty Skyrocket.
The movie men were on the job as
usual and shot miles of pictures of
the students on the frame building
and formed up in the letters U. B. C.
on the grass of the adjoining field.
No Valentinos and very few Pickfords
were discovered on the film when it
was developed but the camera man reported that some of the students
showed promise.
The parade through town while not
demonstrative was effective and created a favorable impression. Here again
all plans were carried out without a
hitch, although the passage of a
C. P. R. train at Carrall street broke
the parade in half.
Floats and slogans were all original
and constructed with a purpose, to
bring home to the people the acute
congestion existing at the University
today. The Municipality of Point
Grey, the City of New Westminster
and various clubs also got -behind the
Committee and assisted with decorated cars and floats. The admirable
manner in which practically every
student assumed personal responsibility for the success of the parade was
above all the most desirable characteristic of the whole proceedings.
Among the hundreds of motorists
who travelled to the Point to witness
the final ceremonies of the Pilgrimage were many who loom large in the
public life of the Province. Through
them as well as through the thousands who saw the parade the favorable impression created by the students on Saturday will be spread to
the most remote sections of the Province. Miss E. P. Hansford, who with
Miss Betty Somerset and Marjorie
Agnew undertook to feed the multitude at the Point, won the praise of
every student who sought nourishment
at the hot dog and coffee house at
the side of the road.
Details About the Cairn
The University has a debt of gratitude towards Messrs. Sharpe and
Thompson, Architects of the permanent buildings, who designed the cairn
at Point Grey, Mr. Thompson giving
his services free. The simple and effective design is rectangular, in keeping with the whole scheme of architecture.
Professor Boving who suggested the
building of the cairn selected a site
in the centre of the main boulevard
directly in front of the Administration
Building. This choice met with the
approval of the University Authorities. Mr. W. H. Powell, Civil Engineer, and Mr. A. H. Pinlay, Science '24,
spotted the exact position.
The Art Monument Company was
given the contract for the building of
the cairn on recommendation from the
Architects. The stone-mason, Mr.
Angus MacRitchie, is to be congratulated on the splendid work he is doing.
The amount, $125, may appear high
but for the class of work is very reasonable. The work is permanent and
required expert workmanship. Each
student bears a share of the cost.
Prom a materialistic point of view it
is surely worth this trifle. From its
significance as a landmark of United
Student effort its value now and in
the years to come cannot be measured in dollars and cents.
Well I was out canvassing on Wednesday, as I suppose all the rest of
you were. I went to one house and
the woman came and opened the door,
and I says: "I wonder if you'd mind
signing this petition to have the University moved out to Point Grey."
"Oh, I don't know," she replied^
"where  is  it now?"
"Well Madam," says I, "it's right between the General Hospital and the
Incurable Consumptive Hospital, and
what's more my dear lady, we have to
have Chemistry Nine in a tent."
She looked at me rather peculiar
like, and then she remarked, "Will it
cost me anything to sign this thing?"
"No Madam," I answered, "it will
not cost you a cent, you can sign it
absolutely free."
"Can I though," she murmured, "how
about the taxes?"
Taxes? well that had me thinking
for a while, but in a couple of minutes I got a brilliant idea, why not
explain the Kiwanis plan to her.
"Madam," I says, "Madam, do you
know what the Kiwanis are?" She
said she didn't. "Well," I explained,"
every Kiwani is a native of this city,
and they have a plan which will make
it so you won't have to pay any extra
taxes at all." "These Kiwanis are
going to buy all the land around the
University site at Point Grey, and with
the money they are going to build our
University; every Kiwani has promised to support the thing to the last
man." When I has finished she looked
rather puzzled; I guess she wasn't
very intelligent, because she didn't
seem to grasp the idea at all.
"However, Madam," I continued,
"we've got lots of other arguments,"
and I pulled out my special copy of
the UBYSSEY. "Here's some sort of
a thing that says that with a college
education 5768 attained distinction."
"Here's another argument up in the
corner that says 'students must bring
petition form and stickers to the meeting. Now will you sign Madam,"
I pleaded.
"No sir," she answered, "I certainly
will not."
Then I says, "Well Madam If that's
the way you look at it, I guess I'll
move on."
"O will you," she cried, "all right
I'll sign then."
In spite of the strenuous hike out
to Point Grey last Saturday afternoon, a few of the club went up
Grouse Mountain in the evening. They
had the pleasure of trying out the new
bed of boughs and found that It compared very favorably with the Rest-
more products. On Sunday morning
three or four members came up and
the day was spent in fixing up the
cabin for the coming winter. It is to
be hoped that all the members will
take advantage of the weather during
the next few weeks before and do
their share of the remaining work.
The Faculty and students of the
University will learn with interest
that Professor G. Grojean has been
awarded by the French Government
the title of Offlcier d'Academie. This
is another recognition by the outside
world of the high attainments of the
members of our modern language department.
The first meeting of the Biological
Discussion Club will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 7th, at 8 p.m. at the home
of Miss Jessie Caspell, 344 14th Ave.

.Varsity notched the win, column for
the second time this season when they
defeated Westminster United at
Clarke Park, Saturday. Deprived of
the support of .the ; usual'. turnout of
rooters, and playing .without the assistance of Crute. Varsity scored
three goals, and held their opponents
Wilkinson, another recruit from the
third-division team, played in.Crute's
place and turned in a very good performance. It is interesting to note
that all our thirds play an interesting
and heady game, especially those who
have been fortunate enough to make
senior company.
The game was fast throughout and
it was not long before McLceod drove
in a hot shot, and beat their goalie
for our first counter.
In spite of the efforts of the Westminster forwards, Varsity still pressed and after some pretty passing
Lundie went through for the second
In the second half McLeod put the
game 'on ice' when be scored another
goal for the blue and gold. The playing of the team was far superior to
that of last week. Mosher had little
to do, and our forward line showed up
exceptionally well.
Varsity now has seven points and
stands high up in the first division.
The teams above us have played two
more games than we and are credited
with the additional points. Although
it is early in the season, Varsity is
acknowledged as a serious contender
for premier first division honors.
If the amount of men turning out
to basketball can be taken as any
criterion, hoop-enthusiasts will have a
fine year.
The majority of the men who played
last time are available, while to fit
the places of those who have left are
several recruits from' the Freshmen.
Last year, although Varsity did not
finish the season at the head of any
league, our representatives chalked up
several victories. The senior team,
owing to sickness and injuries, were
unable to field a team against the
Y. M. C. A. in the final game. This
year, with any sort of luck, we should
be able to beat our old rivals.
In the senior "B" division, Varsity
took eleven straight games. Penwill,
Turnbull, McPherson and Stephens
are still with us. Mosher, our brilliant goalkeeper in the first division
soccer team, is also a fine hoop man.
It is safe, to say that if he gets baskets the way he saves goals, the
scorer will have a hard time to keep
track of his scoring.
Carlisle, Gross, Bickell,' Lewis and
Elliott will undoubtedly form the senior "A" team this year. With "Buck"
Buchanan as coach, and an early
start, we are well on the way to cop
premier honors.
Of the intermediates, Henderson, H.
O. Arkley and Stan Arkley will, perhaps, form the body of a fine team.
Martin, of Agriculture, is said to be
a fine player and may turn out with
this division, while Gill, "the Cran-
brook flash," will also be "among
those present."
With such talent as this from which
to pick, the outlook is most encouraging. "Garrison" finishes will no doubt
be in order, and the "fans" will undoubtedly be served with many tasty
and fast games on the floors of the
Normal and Y. gyms.
The Varsity Interclass Basketball
League got off to a flying start last
Friday at the Normal Gym. when four
of the class teams clashed in the first
league games. In the first game, Arts
'26 triumphed; over Arts '24 by the
score of 30-12, while in the second encounter Science '24 won from Science
'23 by 18-8.
In the first game Arts '24 started off
with a rush, and scored directly from-
the face-off. Buchanan and Lewis
were working well together, and the,
freshies were unable to hold them at
first. However, they soon got going
and by half-time had rolled up a score
of 15 to 8 in their favor. During the
second half, the freshies continued to
score while they held their opponents
down to four points. The team lined
up- as follows:—Arts '26—Currie,
Boomer, Harvey, McKenzie, Gross,
Porter, Paulson. Arts '24—Buchanan,
Lewis, Elsey, McKay, Marrion.
In the second game, Science '24 won
from Science '23 in a fast and furious
encounter in which a great deal of
rough playing was noticeable, especially in the first half. Science '23 opened the scoring and seemed to have
the better of the game for a time until
their heavier opponents got going.
Science '23 led at half-time by the
close score of 6-4.
The second half was featured by
some long shooting, Ternan tying the
seore at 8 all with a nice long shot.
From then on, Science '23 went scoreless, while their opponents collected
10 more points, and finished with the
score at 18-8 in their favor. For the
winners, Ternan and iBickle showed
up well. Rex Cameron' for the losers,
was untiring in his efforts, but had
extremely poor luck in shooting. The
line-ups: Science '23—Gregg, Mc-
Vetle, R. Cameron, Gunning, Mathews.
Science '24—Wallace, Bickle, Elliot,
Carlisle, Ternan.
The playing of the men on the respective teams, although very good
at times, could still be improved.
Many good passes were dropped, aed
many easy shots on the nets were missed. However, practice will soon
remedy these faults. It might be said
that team rooters were conspicuous
by their absence, only a few supporters being present. Each class should
make a point of having its quota of
rooters to back its team at every
game. The brand of interclass basketball will be good, and deserves the
support of everyone.
A week has elapsed since competition for the Governors' Cup began.
In that week the athletic class of
Science '24 have become prime favorites  in  the race  for the  silverware.
Science '24, has, to date, won two
pulls in the tug-of-war, and two basketball games. Their hoop game artists
are a hard quintette to beat, but they
may yet taste defeat in trying to heave
over some of the other years. Scienc^
'23 may prove a hard team to beat.
Correspondence has been going on
for some time, between W. McKee,
president of the Rugby Club, and At-
berta University, in connection with
the inauguration of English rugby as
a Varsity sport at Alberta Unlver!-
sity. The game is played in a senioi-
league, and is further played in the
high schools, but as yet Alberta Vajj-
sity does not field a team. The correspondence that has been carried oi(l
is to encourage the English gamej,
thus making inter-provincial collegiate rugby possible. i

When any project is as intrinsically
sound as the Point Grey idea, and has
won as much enthusiasm in almost
every quarter, the role of devil's advocate is an exceedingly undesirable
one. No one likes to point out any
flaws in a plan that appeals so strongly to himself and his fellows. Yet it
is only by considering the arguments
of the opposition that we can most
effectively make out a good case for
ourselves. Therefore, we hold that it
casts no doubt upon our loyalty to the
Student Campaign if we remind our
readers that somebody is certain to
bring up an argument against the
Kiwanis plan, or against any proposal
to change our present conditions. For
example, even among those friends of
the University who signed the petitions, there prevails an idea that further expenditure without additional
taxation is impossible, and that the
Kiwanis plan is too good to be true.
Several thousand dollars are to be
spent in procuring "expert advice"
before the Government takes any real
action. For a small fraction of such
an appropriation many so-called experts would be willing to prove the
Kiwanis project entirely unsound, nor
would they always be without approving listeners in certain places; if such
an audience did not exist, we should
be out at Point Grey now. "Audi
alteram partem" is always a safe
motto, and it is good to hear the other
side when one has a thesis to prove:
each objection answered is an asset
to our cause.
To those who say that considering
the arguments against the Point Grey
plan is harmful to the Campaign, let
us answer with an historical example:
the travelling friars of the mediaeval
Church, who found that thorough
knowledge of a particular heresy was
an excellent weapon in stamping it
out. The modern missionary also
studies the arguments that may be
brought against him. Was the zeal
of the friars lessened, or is the success of the missionary hindered by a
study of possible  objections?
Something has happened to this
University—something not easy td describe—and yet something that should
receive mention here. It is only now,
in the presence of the genuine, that
we have come to recognize the futility
of those florid phrases in which we
were wont to congratulate ourselves
upon our college spirit. That immaturity is passed; but in its place we
have a consciousness—and a pride—
too genuine to dress in purple patches.
"We have come into our heritage."
t   .,. •    •    •
The avowed object of the student
campaign has been to present the
facts regarding the University to the
people of British Columbia that they
might judge for themselves whether
the college should be properly established or not. It was felt that once
the public was in possession of the
true facts of the case it would demand
in no uncertain terms that the work
of construction at Point Grey be undertaken without delay.
Yet he would be sanguine who would
venture to state at the present time,
after the conclusion of the most successful effort that students of this
University have ever made, that the
establishment of the University was
an accomplished fact; or even that
public opinion in this province had
been converted altogether to making
an immediate start in that direction.
A passionless view of the situation
leads us to come to a less optimistic
yet decidedly hopeful conclusion.
It is simply this—that a great many
citizens of British Columbia who favoured the establishment of the University in principle have been strengthened in their belief in our cause;
that thousands of others, who knew
little or nothing of our difficulties have
been turned from indifferent observers
to active supporters; and that tho
campaign has brought forth in certain quarters active opposition. As
to how many supporters the campaign
has gained for us it is impossible to
state; all we can say with certainty is
that the number of friends greatly
exceeds the number of enemies.
This latter fact is full justification
for the campaign having been undertaken. Whether the rising tide of
public opinion forces the government
immediately to change its policy of
apathy in the matter or not, the students have done a great work in having helped to form that tide; and they
may rest assured, in any event, that
their work has not been barren of

At the great crowded rush on Friday, it would have looked rather more
realistic if the students apparently
going to a lecture in the Commercial
Building had not been carrying their
banners. Some literal-minded people
will wonder just what a University
lecture is like.
Besides, everybody looked too cheerful. It doesn't do to appear too happy in our present cramped quarters.
Nor too plutocratic. Those automobiles ought to have been removed
out of the line of fire.
I hate the grim repressors
Who spoil our pleasant days,
Pedantic old professors,
With their despotic  ways
And academic leaning
For dictionary-gleaning,
And looking up the meaning
Of every stupid phrase.
More than the loathsome vulture,
More than the carrion crow,
I hate the Lords of Culture
Who think you ought to know
Each obsolete expression
Of poets whose discretion
Was quite a lost possession

Science '24 is leading the race for
the Governor's Cup. By winning their
games against Science '23 and Agriculture on Friday and Saturday, they
have attained first place. They defeated the "Aggies" 26-3. The latter,
who were handicapped by the absence
of several players, put up a game
figlht, but were no jnptcih for the
Ternan, Bickle,  Carlisle .combination.
In the first game Saturday evening,
Arts '25 won from Arts '23, 29-17.
Play was fast and snappy with the
Arkley brothers showing up well for
Science '25 took the second game
from Science '26 by the close score of
12-9 in a fast hard-checking game.
Both teams played well, with Bassett
starring for Science '25.
Apparently every organization in
Province is behind us. There's always room at the back.
But how far behind are they?

Editor "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:—I would like to take advantage of the privilege offered by your
paper to express my opinion, and that
of many other Freshettes, on the subject
of Arts '26 class fees.
Why were we not, as a class, consulted about them? Are we such infants that we cannot decide for ourselves about such matters? I have not
met anyone, either Freshette or Freshman, who had any "say" in that question. Surely we should settle such matters as a class.
Then isn't 11.50 and $2.00 too much
per person? Arts '26 has promised $50
to the campaign fund—true, but is there
need to increase the fees so exorbitantly to do that? Last year the Freshettes
had to pay fifty cents each, and there
was a surplus of $30. Why triple the
amount  to  add another $20?
This year there are four hundred and
fifty people in first year. Taking the
average fee per person as $1.75, the
total is $787.50. Fifty dollars from this
leaves over seven hundred and thirty
dollars for entertainments, etc. Is this
right when we are advertising our poverty throughout the province? Moreover is  it necessary?
From my point of view it is not right
to ask so much from those who never
attend the dances, as well as from the
I think, dear editor, you will agree
with me, that it is not a square deal
all around.
Yours sincerely,
Last Saturday's game at Brockton
Point ended in the worst defeat Varsity has suffered in Senior Rugby.
Rowing Club fielded what was probably the strongest team they have produced this season. The Oarsmen got
over on the left wing in the first five
minutes after a run by Winch. This
was not converted. A little later
Winch himself scored and the kick
gave Varsity's opponents a goal. The
College seemed unable to get together
in any converted opposition to Rowing Club's continued attack. Thom
got S try and made a successful kick.
Right at the end of the half Pinkham
scored and another five points were
added. During the first half Varsity
got within scoring distance once, but
were unable to get over the line.
The second half produced another
goal for Rowing Club and in addition
a free kick sent neatly over the bar
brought the total score to 26-0. Thom
piled up many points against Varsity
by his splendid place-kicking. He
only failed to convert one try and
three of his successful kicks were extremely difficult ones. Rowing Club's
three-quarters were also working very
well, Winch being a great asset.

Varsity's first string rugby fifteen
will play their first game of the season on Thanksgiving Day, when they
take on the visitors from the prairies.
Edmonton is reputed to have a strong
team lined up, but definite information is somewhat lacking. The visitors play their first game against Vancouver Rep. on Saturday, November
4, and so Varsity players will not be
meeting an altogether unknown quantity.
The McKechnie squad will lack the
the services of Gross and Penwill,
both of these men being incapacitated
at present. Though this constitutes
a decided loss, Varsity will still be
fielding a strong team and there is
every reason for confidence. The
match is an important one quite apart
from the actual result of the game.
This is the first inter-provincial series
ever played here and the visitors will
carry back with them impressions of
the game as it is played on the coast.
The visitors also will naturally do
their utmost to show their prowess
on a new field and an interesting
struggle is almost certain to result.
It may cause the University of Alberta to adopt the English game. The
report they take back therefore will
undoubtedly have a direct bearing on
this question. Should Alberta University adopt the game, as played
here, U. B. C. at once will be able to
find competition, with the only Canadian University near enough to permit of an interchange of visits.
The final tryouts for the intercollegiate debates were held in the auditorium Friday afternoon. Of the nine
students who tried-out the following
were chosen: Mr. L. T. Morgan, Arts
'24; Mr. A, E. Grauer, Arts '25; Mr.
C .W. Hodgson, Arts '24; and Mr. J. C.
Wilcox, Agriculture '24. Mr. T. H.
Goodwin received honourable mention.
The judges were Professor H. F
Angus, Dr. T. H. Boggs and Dr. W. L.
MacDonald. All the speeches were of
a high standard, which made the
judging extremely difficult.
The debates this year will be
triangular in character; the University of Washington will send a negative
team to the U. B. C, the U. B. C.
will send a negative team to the University of California, and California
will send a negative team to Washington. This is the most ambitious
debating program that the University
of British Columbia has ever undertaken.

56,000 NAMES.
Even the most optimistic will be
'surprised to learn that 56,000 names
have been added to the Varsity Petitions. This means that 56,000 people
have been asked to express a personal
opinion on the University question.
Others will be reached during the
Thanksgiving recess, and by the time
the petition finally reaches Vancouver it is hoped that 75,000 citizens
will have signed. Each student realized his or her personal responsibility;
Arts '23, for example, consisting of
only a hundred members, obtained
well over 6,000 signatures.
Those who donated advertising
in the newspapers were:—O. B. Allan;

Varsity Week is over buty--wheii
the nail has been struck upon the
head it is some time before a distant
observer hears the "noise:*' Vancouver is 80 miles from Victoria. The
only thing left to round out the Campaign, is direct - communication from
the Government to the effect that the,
University will be "completed" as
soon as possible.
Eventhe ether'waveshelped in the
Campaign. On Wednesday, Varsity
Week, Mr. jack Grant spoke over the
radiophone for seven minutes to 700Q
people on the needs of the University;
On the same evening Mr. H. M.!
Cassidy spoke on the Campaign at the
Colonial Theatre, and Mr. Percy Barn
at the Orpheum. Wednesday, October-
25, was not the regular Varsity
Theatre Night, but on that night a
number of students presented a little
skit in aid of the Campaign. On'
Thursday night Miss E. O. Ormrod
presented the University problem to
a prohibition meeting at Wesley
Church, and on Saturday night she
spoke in the K. of C. Hall, North Van-;
cOuver. Mr. G. S. Livingstone addressed the University of Toronto
Alumni on Thurs'day evening. Mr. C,
A. Kelly spoke at the Broadway on
Thursday and Friday nights, and Mr.
A. G. Brunn at the Maple Leaf on
Saturday night. Mr. K. A. Schell delivered impromptu speeches at the
Pairview Theatre on Wednesday and
Thursday nights and as a result succeeded, after the performance, in adding some 125 names to the petition.
The University owes a debt of gratitude to the merchants of the city who
offered their windows for Campaign
advertising. Spencer's and the Hudson's Bay presented particularly fine
windows. Those who took the trouble
to go around and look at these windows will realize what a boon they
were to the Campaign. First of all
you may have noticed a disinterested
observer step up and begin looking at
the photographs of "our buildings."
When his eye was well focused upon
those garbage cans, so evident in the
picture, a student with a petition
would rush up to him and—well you
know the rest. Another great aid to
the Campaign was the advertising
space which the merchants contributed in the dailies.
A debate between Arts '23 and '24
was held in the auditorium yesterday.
The subject, "Resolved that Moving
Picture Productions in their Present
Conditions are a Menace to Society,"
promoted some very interesting discussion. Miss Mildred Osterhout and
Miss Jean Straus of Arts '23 spoke
on the negative side, while Miss Greta
Mathers and Miss Dorothy Holmes of
Arts '24 for the affirmative.
The judges were Prof. Wood, Miss
Ross and Mr. Norman Robertson.
Afterwards, delicious coffee and
cakes were served, while the audience
was given an opportunity of informally discussing the debate.

In honour of the new members, the
Players' Club of the U. B. C. held its
Annual Reception in the Auditorium
on Friday evening.
Gay Chinese lanterns and multicoloured maple leaves adorned the
walls; while on the platform, decorated with Hallowe'en novelties and
Jack-o' lanterns, a four-piece orchestra produced irresistible dance melodies.
In one corner, shaded lamps, cushioned easy chairs and rugs made a
cosy spot for the Patronesses, Mrs.
Wood, Mrs. Coleman and Miss Bollert.
In Room X a daintily appointed
table, centred with a large bowl of
golden chrysanthemums was presided
over by Mrs. Wood and Mrs. Coleman.
Confetti, serpentine and balloons
served to heighten the gaiety of the
party. During the evening numbers
were distributed among the dancers
and cigarettes and chocolates were
awarded the couple who held the
lucky number. The hour of midnight
came all too soon and the dancers
left for home with much reluctance.

present Campaign. During their addresses the speakers will be heckled
from the audience and subjected to
all the conditions experienced in a
regular "free-for-all" meeting. An interesting discussion will then ensue
in which the whole audience is requested to take part.
Thus the Campaign speakers will
go forth armed and prepared for the
worst. Every undergrad will do well
to be present as this is an excellent
opportunity to assist the Campaign
as well as to "boost" for one of the
livest societies in the Varsity.

Sardines Please
It was certainly some parade, fellows, and we nearly fell out of the
window in the excitement, as being
Scotch we didn't want to miss anything. We heartily endorse the "Build
the University" campaign, and agree
with you it is time to change, and by
the way it is time you were thinking
about your new fall suit or overcoat.
Clelland's a man you can go to feeling confident you'll be treated just
right. There's a style for every figure
and a price for every pocket.
Opposite Switzer's Music Store, up
a few steps, and you're there in less'n

'23, is behind the campaign. At a
meeting last week' the class decided
that $400 be given to the Campaign

its permanent home in Point Grey.
A Faculty of Law in the U. B. C.
may, before long, be something more
than an "Idle Vaunt" to be placed
upon a Campaign banner. Members
of the legal profession here, have
placed before the Board of Governors
a plan for the formation of a Faculty
of Law.
Upon previous occasions the Board
of Governors have stated that they
would do nothing towards the institution of new faculties until the old
ones were better housed. The benchers, however, have overcome the housing difficulty by securing for the University, permission to use the City
Hall as quarters for the prospective
At present, there are a number of
lawyers in the city who are delivering
free lectures to law students. These
men upon the establishing of a Faculty of Law in the University would be
willing to carry on this instruction
practically free of charge. Members
of the legal profession have, moreover, promised to contribute money towards the establishment and upkeep
of the new faculty.
The matter will be referred to the
Senate on December 20. and it will
rest with them whether the University
shall have a Law Faculty or not.

knows something else. "Dave,"
she said, "meet me at Gordon
Drysdale's an' we'll go down to
Bruce's and select one of those
Wool Gabardine Coats—I want
you to have something real
Say, leave it to a woman to
know; she'll search the town
untiringly till she finds what
she wants, and she knows what
her husband should want.
We'll say it, Dave—you will
look fine in a pure wool Gabardine, it's fully cravenetted, and
you'll only need to spend $25.
And you'll see the special line
of Shirts at $2.45—they're something to talk about. Take a good
look round, anyway, even if you
only buy the coat—you'll learn
You've got to say it about
Bruce—he's got the prices right
