Musical Club
Plan Xmas
High   Class   Talent   Ensures
Success This Year
The Musical Society has made a
splendid beginning on the programme
for the Christmas concert, which will
be slightly "different" from any
Christmas concert in the past. This
year the society is fortunate to number among its members several artists
who have earned an enviable reputation in Vancouver musical circles, and
some will be heard at this time.
Under the skilful training of Mr.
Wilbur G. Grant, A.T.C.M., conductor,
the orchestra and glee clubs are making excellent progress. The Men's
Glee Club, however, is anxious to secure more members—especially in the
tenor section.
Prof. E. H. Russell, life honorary
president of the society, will, on November 7th, continue the lecture given
last .year on the "History of Music."
This lecture will be illustrated by local
artists, and those who had the privilege of hearing his very interesting
talk on the early development of
music are looking forward with keen
interest to the sequel.
The annual autumn hike is to be
held on Saturday, October 27, and the
objective this year is Cypress Park.
Those interested are requested to
watch for notices, which will be posted in the entrance hall, giving further
Varsity Wins
Miller Cup
Native Sons Enable To Cope with
U. B. C. Squad
Varsity won its second game in the
Miller Cup series. "A much stronger
team than the one that played the
previous Saturday took the game from
the Native Sons by a score of 13-0.
With practically the entire McKechnie Cup squad against them, Native
Sons didn't have a chance, although
the game was not so one-sided as the
score might indicate.
Native Sons kicked off and pressed
hard for a few moments until War-
fen broke away with the ball at the
25-yard line, and after one of the most
thrilling runs that has ever been seen
at the Point, deposited the ball behind the line. Val converted from a
Very difficult angle. For the remainder of the period play was very even,
although at times Native Sons pressed
hard on the Varsity line. i

Dr. Williams
Speaks to
Geological   Discoveries   in  the
North, Subject of Lecture
Dr. M. Y. 'williams, of the faculty
of geology, was line lecturer at a
meeting of th« ^Vancouver Institute,
held last ThursdalrTn the FHysics
Building, when he spoke on "Some
Geological Discoveries in the North."
Dr. Williams began by reviewing
the explorations which constitute the
early history of our Canadian north-
lands. He recalled the discovery of
Great.Slave Lake by Hearne, in 1771,
and the subsequent discoveries of
Athabasca and Great Bear Lakes.
Geological expeditions to the north
began with Dawson and McConnell's
survey of 1887, said the lecturer.
These men had laid the foundations
upon which the work of succeeding
parties has been built.
The doctor paid a tribute to the
Imperial Oil Co. for their progressive-
ness in sending geologists to investigate the northern oil lands, when new
fields were not needed by the company for development purposes. Their
surveys had proved that oil was there,
though drilling would not be a general success until better transportation facilities could be provided.
An admirable selection of slides
was shown, illustrating the experiences
of Dr. Williams and his party during

The track team returned on Tuesday from the intercollegiate meet at
Saskatoon. This is the first time the
University of British Columbia has
competed in athletics with other Canadian universities, and the B. C. track
stars are loud in their praises of the
reception accorded them.
They were met at the train by a
delegation of student leaders, and welcomed with a rousing "Kitsilano."
The boys stayed at a large dormitory
house which has accommodation for
one hundred and fifty students, and
were given splendid rooms. In the
evening they dined in the community
hall, and again heard the familiar
sounds of "Kitsilano" repeated by the
women students.
The meet itself took place on Saturday. A jinx seemed to pursue the
team from the coast; perhaps it was
the sudden change in altitude (Saskatoon is over two thousand feet above
sea level), or it may have been the
long train trip; but whatever the reason, the B. C. men could not come up
to form. Ramsell, who had consistently hurled the discus, while training, over 320 feet, took second place
with a throw of 110 feet. Buckley
and   Barton,   although    breaking    the
distance records for B. C, were beaten by one of the best long-distance
men in Canada. Livingstone had the
misfortune to stumble in the 220-yards
dash, and got off to a bad start in the
100. Russell had strong competition,
but managed to win the high jump,
clearing the bar at 5 feet 4 inches.
There was a banquet held for the
participants on Saturday night, followed by a dance. To finish their hospitable program, the committee in
charge served breakfast in bed to the
tired  athletes on Sunday morning.
The Varsity team wishes particularly to thank the following for their
kindness: Mr. Francis, the President
of the Alma Mater; Mr. Agnew, Mr.
W. P. McLean, Mr. R. Potter, Mr. De
Vine, Mr. Creighton, and "Andy," the
In a recent interview with one of
the Name Contest Committee, President Klinck stated that it would not
be : possible to secure a uetailed map

can secure such a map, no definite
steps will be taken, and all names

First Soccer

Defeat, of Westminster Marks
First Win of Season
The first division soccer team has
evidently broken the jinx that has
been following it since the beginning of the season. On Saturday last
Westminster United was defeated by
the convincing score of 3-0: Not only
that, but the team worked harder^

time had continued in Westminster
territory, became more even and there
was no further score before half-time.
On the opening of the second half,
Varsity again pressed stronclv and
was soon rewarded. Shields tried another shot and although the goalie
stopped it, he couldn't clear, and Lundie easily tapped it into the goal. The

On Thursday evening, October 18th,
the  monthly meeting  of  the "Nursing
Society was held in the Nurses' Home.
The new president, Miss Pearce, con-
'. ducted the meeting.   Miss Nora Higgs
was   elected   secretary   for   the   year,
and Miss Victoria Swencisky athletic
! representative.     Athletics    were    dis-
, cussed,   and   the   members   were   encouraged   to  participate  in   them.     It
was decided to levy a small member-
: ship   lee   to   cover   expenses   for   the
I year.    A debate between those mem-
| bers   now   at   college   and    those   in
j training   at   the   hospital   was    sug-
\ gested.   A hike for next Saturday was
j also planned.   After the business part
I of    the    meeting   refreshments    were
served, and a social time was enjoyed
by  all.    "■
/    ARTS '27
The following have been elected as
the executive of Arts '27 for the coming year:
Honorary president, Mr. Hunter
Lewis; president, Mr. A. Swanson;
vice-president, Miss Almond; secretary, Miss Farris; treasurer, Mr. C.
Thomson; deputy treasurer, Miss D.
Brown; marshal, Mr. W. Sparks; reporter, Mr. G. Philip; Women's Athletic representative, Miss Cameron;
Men's Athletic representative, Mr. J.
Maclean; Literary representatives.
Mr.  B. Carpenter, Miss J. Hockin.
There will be a meeting of Arts '27
in the Auditorium next Friday noon.
The meeting will be for the purpose
of deciding the policy of the class tor
the coming year, and also for ascertaining the feeling of the men in connection with the Arts smoker. This
will be an important meeting, and
the executive hope that there will be
a large  attendance.
At 2 o'clock Arts '26 embarked on
the ferry and, after a "considerable"
journey by boat and rail, started on
the long and tedious like to Capilano.
Many coats and hats were shed along
the way and much puffing and blowing was heard, especially after ascending those awful stairs.
At last the pavilion was reached,
and the Sophs thankfully parked their
eats and prepared for the usual "hop,"
as an orchestra had been provided.
Dancing continued for the rest of the
afternoon and evening, except for a
brief interval when the "inner man"
was appeased with all sorts of hot
coffee and eats. Doc. Sedgewick was
unable to be present, but, as a remembrance, sent up a huge box of
candy, which was fully appreciated.
About 7.30 p.m. the party broke up,
with skyrockets for the "Doc" and the
President, and the weary Sophs plodded down to the carline and boarded
the special car. A special one was
necessary, for the singing and yelling
indulged in might have bothered more
peaceful souls. They reached town
about 9 o'clock, "footsore and weary,"
but otherwise satisfied at having had
a wonderful time.

westward slope of the McKenzie River
basin and had never before been entered by geologists. Amongst the
many interesting fossils found in this
region was a giant shellfish, fully five
feet in diameter.
Other slides showed the dangers of
river travel in the north, the habits
of the scattered Indians, and many
more interesting phases of life in the
great northlands.
Mr. Napier Dennison will lecture on
"Earthquakes, and How They Are Recorded," at the next meeting of the
Institute, Thursday, Oct. 25th. at S
p.m.    A large attendance is expected.
Thi' jmtl, meeting of the Women'3
Lit. .will take the form of a debate
between Arts '24 and '25, to be held
on Wednesday, October 31, at 3 p.m..
in the Auditorium. This debate will
be the first of the inter-class series,
and the subject chosen is: "Resolved
that every action of man arises from
a selfish motive." Miss Eileen Harmon and Miss Margaret Forward, of
Arts '24, will speak for the negative;
while Miss Elsie Rilance and Miss
Vera Mather, of Arts '25, will uphold
the affirmative. It is hoped that there
will be a large attendance.
Preliminary try-outs for the Christ-
mas plays were held on Friday last,
but owing to the large number and
excellence of the candidates, it was
impossible for the judges to give any
decision until further hearings. In ail
probability, results will not be known
until early next week.
ARTS '25
The annual class party of Arts '25
will take place on November 2. Already there is a committee working
on decorations, and a draw for partners will be held during the coming
week. Ex-members of the class who
are still attending Varsity are invited
to be present; they are requested to
hand in their names immediately, to
any member of the executive, in order
to be included in the draw.
A well-attended meeting, presided
over by Miss Jo Paradis, was held last
Thursday, at noon, for the purpose of
forming a French Club. The Objects
of this club will be to further practice
in speaking French, and to give an
opportunity for general conversation
in that language. The officers elected
are as follows: Hon. president, M.
Delavault; president, Miss Jo Paradis; vice-president, Mr. D. Baird; and
secretary-treasurer, Miss Elsie Mac-
Larty. A committee was also appointed to discuss the restrictions of
membership. The programme for the
year is still under discussion, but it
was decided to hold meetings twice a
The Engineering Discussion Club, at
its meeting in the Physics Building,
made its plans for the year. It was
proposed, and agreed upon, that the
main feature of the meetings is to
be the furnishing of opportunities for
public speaking. The topics, of course,
will be confined to engineering work
and incidental problems involved that
students have been engaged in during
the summer vacations. There will
also be informal discussions on the
possible solutions of various engineering problems, which, if they do not
demand immediate solution, will require attention in the near future.
The Club will combine the pleasures
of public appearance and speaking
with the usefulness of real research

Defeats Varsity 3-1
splaying a style that baffled the
blue and gold squad, Hotel Vancouver
registered its sixth win in as many
starts.    The score was 3-1.
As usual, U.B.C. got off the mark
first and almost scored in the first
minute; but a return rush surprised
the Varsity defense, and Davidson did
not have a chance to save. The Hotel
men were playing a beautiful short
passing game, and their clever combination plays completely bewildered
the IJ.B.C. defence. Paul, on the Hotel's right wing, proved himself to be
one of the trickiest outside men of
the league, and their second goal came
after a pretty run by him. To Newcombe goes the honor of registering
Varsity's lone tally. It was the result
of a series of pretty plays, and the
goalie was beaten all the way. The
Hotel pressed again, and several
times the Varsity citadel was in
The second half saw Varsity fall
away. The Hotel men were not displaying the same brand of soccer as
in the preceding period, and U.B.C.
should have taken advantage of this
fact. The third and last goal came
from a beautiful long shot, following
a corner kick. The game ended with
U.B.C. still on the defensive. The
Varsity lineup was as follows: Davidson, Disney, Butler, Muylaert, Cornish.
Fanning, Slope. Newcombe, Cant, Underwood  and   Evans.

Tlie Frosh team lost to Rowing
Club seconds by a score of 11-3. Rowing Club put up a much better game
than on the previous Saturday. The
Frosh were not playing together very
well in the first half. In the second
half their team work was better and
they got across once. At the same
time they hejd the Rowing Club on
their side of the touch line. Sparks
was the outstanding figure on the
Frosh team. With a little more com
bination the Freshmen should have as
good a team as any in the league.
The Teams Were:
Varsity—White, Rogers, Seymore,
Noble, Hall, Sparks, Hearle, Kelly

At the Rugby meeting, held Friday
noon, it was decided, after much discussion, to field the strongest team in
the Miller Cup series. Consequently
Varsity will be represented in this
series by practically the entire McKechnie  Cup squad.
A committee, consisting of the captain of the team, the coach, and a
member of the senior team, was
chosen to select the Intermediate and
Frosh teams. Val Gwyther and Harry
Purdy were chosen to represent the
senior team on this committee.
Continued from Page 1
After the interval the play fluctuated back and forward with neither side
having a decided advantage. Varsity
then pressed and Val went over from
a loose scrum on the line. He failed
to convert. The Native Sons then
came back hard, but failed to go over.
A splendid kick by Gee Ternan relieved. Varsity worked hard and for
the remainder of the period were seldom out of the Sons' half. Just before the whistle Varsity scored again.
After a splendid run in which Ternan,
Buchanan, Palmer, and Cameron took
part, Cameron went over between the
poles. Val converted, making the
score  13-0.
Warren played a very good game,
although his tendency to keep the
ball too long spoiled several runs. His
75-yard run in the first five minutes
of play brought the crowd to its feet.
Val Gwyther put up an excellent
game, his first convert being from a
very difficult angle. Gee played his
usual brilliant game, making several
excellent kicks to touch. The entire
team put up a very good exhibition,
considering that it was the first time
that they have played together this
The only feature of the game that
was not up to the mark was the many
fouls made by Varsity. The consequent free kicks given to Native Sons
lost Varsity many yards. Varsity has
always had a reputation for clean
play.   It would be a pity to lose it.
Varsity's team consisted of Hatch,
Luyat, Brock, Gwyther, Greggor
Price, Hislop, Underhill, W. Cameron,
Ternan, Palmer, Purdy, Buchanan
Warren, Domoney.

At different times during the past
week we have heard rumors to the
effect that there are some hundred
and fifty university students working
as strike breakers on the C. P. R.
wharves. This is not true; and as
far as we have been able to ascertain, the number of university men
who are working there now, or have
worked there in the past, is very
small, perhaps no more than a half
dozen in all. We do know for a certainty, however, that a great many
outside men who have been doing
longshore work have enrolled themselves as college students.
Whether or not students are justified in strike breaking in the present
Instance, or in any other, is entirely
a matter of personal opinion. What
is wrong for one may be right for
another. But in any case it should
be remembered that the beliefs and
actions of a few men should not be
set up as significant of student sympathy as a whole. It has in the past
always been the policy of the different student organizations to support
the trades and labor unions. This
support has been not only of an abstract nature, but has evidenced itself
in the tendering of printing and catering contracts to firms incorporated
with  the different unions.
Among the many problems awaiting
solution upon our arrival at Point
Grey, is the establishment of a students' co-operative store. Even in our
present quarters, the need of such an
organization has been keenly felt. For
example, the sale of sweaters and
pennants, hitherto undertaken of necessity by the Men's Athletic Association, has been recognized as a task
that should be transferred to the
hands of some such organization as
the one under discussion.
By handling practically all student
purchases of sporting goods, such a
co-operative store could make some
attempt at controlling the sale of
Varsity colors. By stocking fountain
pens, note-books, and other necessities, it would eliminate much of the
inconvenience and considerably lessen the cost of purchasing supplies
down-town. And, perhaps, in the future, by taking over the bookstore, a
remedy might be found for one of the
great sources of annoyance to the
At Point Grey there will be no lack
of space for the erection of a build
ing in which to house the proposed
store. But the building will not be
forthcoming unless the organization
is ready to occupy it. If preparations
are commenced at once, the store will
be ready none too soon to start business at the opening of the first session. The necessity of immediate organization cannot be too strongly emphasized as the chief factor in the
success of this venture—the most ambitious in which the student body has
so  far  anticipated   engaging.
Ascetic dancing and posturising is
booming in New York. Its vogue
commenced about the time of the Flu
epidemic, and it was really an outcome of the then fashionable craze
for Aztec dancing, the forerunner of
Jazz. The proper mode of pronouncing Aztec is by a sneezing accent emphasizing "Az," the first syllable,
which owing to the progress of the
epidemic before mentioned could only
be pronounced "Jazz," which latter
word has since become popular, but
notwithstanding its wide-spread reign,
it is becoming rapidly ousted by the
new recherche ascetics.
There is a young woman now attending this University who is the
victim of a strange superstition, almost an insanity. She is afraid to
pass anyone on the stairs, because
she believes it is a sure forerunner
of ill luck. She is ashamed of this
obsession (and has spoken of it to
only one person), yet is unable to
free herself from it. At different times
during the day when the halls are
crowded and a number of people are
passing up and down the stairs, you
may see her standing at the top by
the railing, waiting till the way is
clear. She is, as a result, late for a
great many lectures, and friends have
frequently wondered why she makes
no attempt to be on time. The woman is a member of Arts '26. Perhaps the publication of this note may
help to free her from such a foolish

It is gratifying to those connected
with the Players' Club to realize that,
as time passes, this organization is
becoming more and more widely
known throughout the province. Evidence of this has been received during the past week. Mr. W. C. Hep-
tonstall, of Dewdney, has presented to
the Club the back numbers for quite
a few years of the English stage
periodical called "The Play Pictorial."
This gift is in memory of Mr. Hep-
tonstall's brother, who was killed
overseas. The Players' Club in turn
has presented it to the library, since
they feel it will be there accessible
to all within the university who care
to use it, and also will be available
to all organizations, such as the Little
Theatre, should they have occasion to
refer to it. It is an interesting magazine, featuring, as it does, each month,
one play successful on the London
stage, and has a great number of
scenes from the play that suggest the
costuming and the staging that were
used. In connection with the gift, the
donor suggests the following words as
"In memory of George Hepstonstall,
late of Vancouver and Hale, Cheshire,
England; he was a lover of Shakespeare, and all connected with the
stage. I feel he would not wish these
books to be put in better keeping than
the University, where I feel they will
be useful to others, interested the
same as he was."

Editor   "The   Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:
in your correspondence column of last
week's "Ubyssey" appears a letter signed "H. C, Arts '26," on the question of
gowns for Arts '25. The subject seems
to be worrying our sophomore friend to
such an extent that he has published
.-oine rather incoherent remarks. These
statements might be considered, mathematically speaking, innnitesmals of a
very  high  order.
"H. C." insults the intelligence of his
own year when he implies that the mere
fact of Arts '25 not wearing gowns this
year as a class will prevent Arts '26
irom wearing them next year. It is
surely understood that undergraduates
of the University may wear gowns if
they wish, and because one class does
not wish to don them as a body is not
going to hinder anyone else from doing so.
Yours sincerely,
Arts  '25.
Editor  "Ubyssey."
Dear   Sir:
1 am confident that 1 voice the feeling of a large number of the women
of the University, when I object to the
tone and substance of the pseudo-
facetious article signed "Laumo," that
appeared on the editorial page of your
issue  of   October  11.
Doubtless there are women at the
University who smoke. But their indulgence in the practice is entirely a'
matter of personal taste; and, like other
affairs of a purely personal nature, is
not a fit subject for objectionable pleasantries.
Moreover, "Laumo" should remember
that the "Ubyssey" finds its way into
the hands of taxpayers in all parts of
the province. Such an article as his,
taken seriously, has power to do the
University harm that would be particularly deplorable just at this time.
Yours truly,,-
LUCY j,NGRAM,   '24.
Editor   "The   Ubyssey."
Sir:—Perhaps my feelings for H. C,
Arts '26, who dirtied the columns of our
publications last week, should be of extreme sympathy, for, Sir, ho is doubtlessly an imbecile. Records of Arts '26,
however, show that Herbert Eustace
Kordyce Clark is the only member of
that class bearing the initials H. C. I
do not think it possible for Mr. Clark
to reach the low level expressed, consequently I feel that it is unfortunate
that some mentally unbalanced person
should  write under his  initials.
Arts '25, as a class, cannot afford to
pay $12.50 each for gowns. This is unfortunate, as H. C. points out. We
would accept with thanks his cheque
for $1,662.50, which sum would purchase
the  necessary   133   gowns.
There is no need, Mr. Editor, to answer any insinuations relative to delivering the goods in Arts '25. A person
who is not man enough to close a letter with his name cannot be very sure
of his stand. If he considers the merits of Arts '25 and Arts '26 debateable,
his suggestion would be welcomed by
the  Men's  Literary Society.
Hoping", Sir, that some one may learn
the identity of this poor unfortunate
candidate for the well-known institution for his kind, and may teach him
the error of his ways, I remain, Sir,
One   of your  careful   readers,
Warnings For
One day, as the Wanderer meandered through the Halls of Learning,
she suddenly had an inspiration. Here
were many who were just setting
forth on that road beset with surprises,
pleasant or otherwise, for those who
know little or nothing of the gentle
art of wandering. The Wanderer's
inspiration was that possibly these
novices might welcome a few timely
hints from one who had had some
little experience in the art.
Volumes could be written on this
subject. The subject of lines has already been dealt with exhaustively
and satisfactorily. Sundry maxims
might here be mentioned which have
not to do so much with lines as with
the application of the same. One of
the first and foremost of these is:
Never be obvious—especially if you
are a novice in the art mentioned
above. The obvious methods are
scarcely ever advisable unless you
have the technique to get away with
it. The obvious should be used with
great care and only if you are a past
master (or mistress)  in the art.
Another thing—the obvious method
should be applied in public except for
overwhelmingly good reasons. The
victim, especially if one of the supposedly stronger sex, usually dislikes
being made conspicuous and unsur-
mountable  complications   may  ensue.
Any young wanderer wanting advice may address enquiries which will
be answered in the next issue of the
Ubyssey, if a pen-name is enclosed, to

A. M. U. S. Meeting
On Friday, Oct. 19th, there was a
meeting of the Arts Men's Undergraduate Society in the Auditorium. A
motion for an amendment to the constitution of the society was passed.
The motion was to the effect that
there should be an Arts Marshal elected by the entire faculty, instead of
having a senior class marshal act for
the faculty, as has been the custom.
The new faculty marshal is Mr. Shore.
Mr. Murray Hunter was elected to the
position of secretary. The matter of
the financing of the Arts smoker was
left over to be discussed by the various classes.

Elsinore Tries Out In
"Birthcake of the
McGoogle Seeks Seclusion  of Church
Literary Corner
Of course, it was none of my business in the first place. But, then, I
was curious. You see, Elsinore had
been admitted into the Players' Club
through an act of God or an inexperienced advisory committee. Now
she was to try out for her part in a
piece called the "Birthcake ot the
Infantry," or something like that. It
therefore behooved me to be on the
spot for the try-outs. With this purpose in view, I went to hide myself
in an alleged room known as the
basement of the Fairview Baptist
Church. In this beautifully adorned
dungeon, there were only two places
where I could possibly hide myself.
One was inside the organ, the other
inside the stove. I did not fancy the
organ, because some sophette might
take it into her head to play "Barney
Google" or Mendelssohn's Wedding
March on it. Therefore I climbed into
the stove, tearing the gown I was
wearing. This did not annoy me very
much, as I did not own the gown, having borrowed it from the business
manager a few minutes previously.
At this point the door of the room
opened and in walked a very long
man, a very fat man, and a very beefy
man; also two very attractive Freshettes. The long man looked at the
fat man. "Shoot," said he. Hereupon
the fat man, whom I now recognized,
slowly opened his mouth and murmured, "No, Blanche; it cannot be.
My duty to my country, to my King,
and to my Sunday School prevents
me. Good-bye. Boo-hoo. How's
that?" "Excruciatingly rotten," the
long-suffering director replied. One
of the Freshettes, who had been
standing demurely beside the beefy
individual, now opened her mouth.
"No, no, no!" she said, or rather
shrieked. "Don't leave me with the
child!" She then flung one arm
around the fortunate Tubby's neck;
the other, swinging at random, connecting with the stovepipe. This
passionate speech and action had no
apparent effect on either him or the
very bored director, but it precipitated another five or six tons of soot,
of which I reaped the full benefit. The
rest of the rehearsal was carried out
without any further event of importance, although a spider or so crawled
up and down my neck a few times. I
now remembered, though a little late,
that it was Room Z where Elsinore
was to try out, the venue having been
changed at the last minute. However, I was able to control my feelings
until the amateur actors departed.
The next twenty minutes I spent in
extricating myself and most of Keen-
an's gown from the stove. I now met
with a difficulty. The door had been
locked, and the windows were too
small to crawl through. There was
nothing for me to do but crawl back
in the stove and go to sleep, which I

The Outdoors Club weekly hike was
held Sunday. Fourteen members
turned out to enjoy a climb up Grouse
Mountain. Work was started on a
new cabin, and the members report
that they have succeeded in laying a
foundation. Although the weather
was threatening in the morning, it
cleared up and everyone enjoyed the
climb and construction work. Another hike will be held next week, of
which particulars will be posted on
the Notice Board.
Miss M. Bollert, Dean of Women,
entertained the Club at her home on
Monday evening last, delighting the
members with an interesting talk on
Wagner's "Lohengrin."
Officers were elected and plans
made for an active series of meetings
during the forthcoming year. The
executive will consist of Mr. Gerald
C. G. Kerr, president; Miss M. Boul-
ton, archivist, and Mr. A. Earle Bir-
ney,  secretary-treasurer.

"That Clean Story"
(A Muckitorial.)
We have been forced to announce
in our news columns that exactly sixty-three freshmen, not counting the
little fellow, have succumbed to nervous prostration. This is the direct
result of the mental strain imposed
upon them by having to think of a
"clean story" to tell at the initiation.
The reporter will probably forget to
write up this great and altogether enlightening piece of news, and the editors being concerned with such stupendous occurrences as the "Longshoremen's Strike," will probably pass'
it up. We are of the opinion that
such a scandalous state of affairs
should be brought to the attention of
the student body. The delay in adopting this muckitorial attitude towards this question has been caused
partly by a desire to obtain the latest
statistics. We can now guarantee that
sixty-three and the little fellow is the
final count of those who have survived the strain! We have also obtained a series of interviews with the
members of the English Dept. to find
out if this rather terrifying experience with the "clean story" has affected in any way the freshies' general lack of interest in the "short

Mussolini Discussed
The first meeting of the Men's Lit.
was held last Wednesday in the auditorium. The president, Mr. Lome
Morgan, took the chair, and opened
the meeting by reading the new constitution. To fill the vacancy left by
the resignation of Mr. J. Wilcox, Mr.
W. Murphy, Arts '26, was elected secretary-treasurer. The new publicity
manager is Mr. Lex McKillop, Arts '25.
Mr. Morgan then explained the aims
of the society, and welcomed the new
members. He urged all to try for
places on the International Debating
Teams, as the Men's Literary Society
is the proper training ground for these
The subject for the evening was

many valuable and helpful hints. After a hearty vote of thanks to Mr.
Angus,  the meeting  adjourned.

The Governor's Cup was presented
by the Board of Governors of the
University for inter-class competition.
The cup is given to the class making
the highest number of points in interclass sports. The latter include tug-
of-war, basketball, rugby, soccer, the
track meet, the Arts '20 relay, swimming and boxing. In the first five
athletic events listed above the points
given will be—four for first, three for
second, and two and one for third
and fourth place respectively. In the
last three events listed above, three,
two and one points will be in order.
Science '24 won the cup last year, but
practically every year stands a goou
chance of copping it this time.
A large number of students were
present to hear Dr. Boggs speak on
"Wider Implications of Christianity,"
at noon, Monday. Dr. Boggs discussed
his subject under four main points:
The religion of the churches does not
coincide completely with that of
Christ; Christianity is a universal
message to man, and yet among the
majority of people to-day there is a
feeling of hostility towards it; it cannot be therefore that the full
message is given. The teachings of
Christ are far grander and wider than
those of some Christians who a're only
concerned with the individual soul
and its salvation. Schemes proposed
and worked upon by social leaders
for social development are not of the
devil and predestined to failure; a
peep at Pepy's. diary will convince any
enquiring reader that conditions in
the world are improved and not retrograde. Religion does not set itself
in defiance of intelligence; reason has
been invoked in every field except
that of religion, and it is only when
it has been called in that Christianity
will be rightly represented.
The University Boxing Club has resumed its activities and promises to
be an even greater success this year
than it was in previous years. The
Club meets every Tuesday night at 8
p.m., in Chalmers' gym. There is a
highly qualified instructor in attendance, and the boys are learning the
game under his coaching. During the
next week or two the members will
be graded according to their weights,
and it will be possible for each member to secure plenty of opponents in
his own class. After the boxing, members are entitled to the use of Chalmers' swimming tank.
An interesting meeting was held last
Tuesday, when George Lipsey spoke
to the Science men on mining in the
Cariboo District. Difficulties met with
in mining at Cedar Creek and Barker-
ville, especially Barkerville, were discussed, and various mining feats explained. Mr. Lipsey showed a thorough grasp of his subject. Pictures
taken at these mining centres were
displayed. At the close of the meeting Mr. Wilkin, the honorary president of the Engineering Discussion
Club, gave a criticism, which was
more in the nature of an eulogy.
The first meeting of the Chemistry
Society was held on Tuesday evening,
October 16, in the Physics lecture
room. A number of new members
