Danger To
Prof. Soward Delivers
Criticism of Policy
Will nationalism die?
"The future of nationalism is a row
of question marks," declared Prof.
Soward at the talk given in Aggie
100 last Tuesday, "but it will not be
destroyed—instead it may destroy us!"
"NationaUsm is an emotion shared
by a body of people normally speaking the same language, living in the
same homeland and desirous of living
under the same government." This
was Prof. Soward's definition of nationalism.
Growth  Since  Middle  Ages
"It was almost entirely missing in
the Middle Ages," he said, "but in
later times it was most successfully
realized in countries where a struggle
with an aliene foe took place."
The movement in 1820 for freedom
from foreign control gave a great stimulus to nationalism. The Poles, Italians and Serbs never lost their national self-consciousness, the latter
two even endeavouring to liberate
their countrymen who were stranded
in Austria.
The cause of the World War was
an act of nationalism on the part of
a Serbian 6tudent who hoped to free
the Serbs from oppression by assassinating the Archdue of Austria.
Blsmarklan Nationalism
"One conception of national self-
consciousness was given by Bismark
declared that a nation should be free
even if it meant crushing others in the
process. Nationalism is justified in
shaking off alien control but it is disastrous to inject international control."

At the organization iiK-etiny Wednesday noon, the actual work of the
Student Publicity burcou got under
way. Members were assigned stories
to work on, which will be pooled for
the benefit of all members. These
will be available at once for use, and
it ia hoped tint different representatives will all be able to send their
papers the first batch of copy in the
coming wec_.

its own, it will make use of the Publishing office desk. The assignment

to consult daily, is there now. Classified records of all out of town students will shortly be available there,
and already a respectable quantity
of news material is on hand. One
of the committee will be on duty
each noon hour at least.
After the committee meets the
Public Relations Board on Monday,
it is expected that regular supplies of
news will be available from each faculty, weekly. Any members or persons interested in the work of the
Bureau, and who were not at the
meeting, are requested to call in and
discuss the work with one of the
committee as soon as possible. There
are several up-country papers still
unrepresented, and New Westminster

"George Meredith is an optimist not
by reason of his creed, which it at
bottom stoical, nor from proof, which
he doesn't seek; his is the optimism
of temperament," declared Theodore
Plommer In a paper on "The Philosophy of George Meredith," before the
Letters Club at thc home of Mr. and
Mrs. John Ridington, Tuesday night.
'The speaker contrasted Meredith's
attitude, which he described as
"buoyant without involving a falsification of the facts of life," with that
of the great Victorians which he referred to as "nearly all curiously lopsided." as a result of the rude challenge to their established ideas offered by such theories as Darwinism.
Comparing Meredith's religious
views with those of Wordsworth,
Plommer continued in part: 'Wordsworth supposed that man's high instincts were not the heritage of
earth, but were bestowed on him by
a kindly heaven. To Meredith we
are Earth's creatures, drawing our
strength from her."
Qualifying this statement however,
the paper explained Meredith's belief that while man should love Nature, lie should not be her slave, ancl
that only by a combination of natural instinct and reason could he
avoid asceticism on the one hand, and
"sensual whirlpools" on the other.
Plommer stated that although Meredith had r stoical faith that the
struggle for wisdom could never
cease, he nevertheless believed in the
progress of the race over geological
periods of time at least. He added
that Meredith considered egoism as
the greatest enemy of progress. This
characteristic he divided into two
classes—consciousness of self which
becomes spiritual vitality, and sen-
tinicntalism. one type of which is
selfish nt root. beitiK a subtle form
'of ee'oisni. and the other "a purely
i wi Il-nieanine, variety with it.s extreme form in  asceticism."

German University Life
Described By Professor
Miss Hallamore, Just Returned From Munich, Addresses I.R.C.
"Whal lias religion to do with social reconstruction?" was the .subject
of Mr. Dick Davis at the combined
m'.tiiu* of the S.C.M. and the Varsity Y.. at i:oou yesterday. Mr. Davis
| said that it is his opinion that if regulated capitalism is tried in Canad i
and fails, Canadians will turn towards Fascism rather than Socialism.
It is this problem with which the
church is faced today, he said. Ths
social responsibility should be undertaken by the church.
Mr. Davis said that wje are living
in a period of rapid social change.
Social change does not, however, proceed with the same rapidity in all
phases of life in the World he pointed out. It is very rapid in science
ancl much slower in government and
With the Industrial Revolution
came a scientific revolution which
greatly affected religious thought and
since that time scientific thought has
made great advances while religious
thought has become somewhat stagnant.
It was his aim. said the speaker, to
show that the church must increase
its rapidity of social change and take
on the job of social reconstruction.
This question of social reconstruction is taking the attention of many
people today, stated Mr. Davis, and
in his opinion it should be most important to religious-thinking people
and should be their responsibility.

Varsity Squashed
32-22 By Victoria;
Next Game Sat'day
Fans Disappointed At
Varsity — Poor
Varsity took their second defeat of
the season when they went down before the fierce attack of the Victoria
Blue Ribbons, holders of the Dominion basketball title. This was a big
surprise to both spectators and players as the students managed to beat
the champions on their own floor
earlier in the season.
Ribbons Have Edge
Bardsley started the local boys off
with two points on foul shots, but
that was a mere flash in the pan as
the Victoria team proceeded to score
ten point, in a row. Frank Hay,
husky U.B.C. guard, let loose one of
his deadly centre shots, and followed
this a few minutes later with a score
on a free throw. It looked as if the
Blue and Gold aggregation were hitting their stride as Bardsley increased
the score witn another basket..
Though the scoring was fairly evenly divided in the last part of this
period the Blue Ribbons were able
to keep their advantage and lead by
Even Struggle
The second half was a much
evener struggle but the capital city
boys were not to be beaten. Dick
Wright unleashed a beautiful long
shot that gave tht- onlookers a tremendous thrill but the effort was
not followed by the much longed for
break and the game finally came to
an end with visitors on top by a 32-
22 score.
Victoria Play Fast Game
The Blue Ribbons played an unexpectedly fine game, as the loss of
the Patricks was supposed to have
weakened the team very considerably.
No doubt it did but the rest of the
team know plenty about basketball
as they readily proved on Wednesday
night. Martin played the best game
for the visitors, penetrating the .student's zone defence time and time
again he c; me out with the high
score of 10 points.
Varsity Not Outstanding
No one was outstanding on the Varsity squad thou;;h Bardsley was high
man with six points. The defence
was weak ancl the visitors had no
difficulty in working through the
zone system Thc team weie not
working the smooth passing game
that has led then to so many victories in the past. However, two defeats
in a row should put them on their
mettle and they should have no difficulty in their next league game on

Lose To Normals
Staging a last minute rally the almost succeeded, Varsity's Intermediate "A" entry in the V. and D. Basketball League went down fighting
to the Normal School team at King
Edward Gymnasium Wednesday night
losing 37-31. Varsity held the older
and more experienced Normal aggregation in the first half, but allowed their opponents to run up a
fourteen point lead in the opening
of the second half, which they were
unable to overcome.
Considering that, they were playing
their first game, in a small gymnasium, agaiast an older squad, the Varsity players did remarkably well. The
Normal School is rated as being one
of the fastest in the league and is
composed very largely of Varsity

The Varsity Big Four team will
perform once again on Saturday when
they will tackle the New Westminster
aggregation at Athletic Park. This
wil! be the first game thai they have
played with this squad this season,
and it should be a good battle.
Students In Shape
The New Westminster men will be
out in full force determined to win
but. they are going to run up against
f. team that is just as determined and
just as anxious for victory. The students have been working hard rain,
or shine, and every day they are becoming faster, trickier and cleverer
at ball handling.
Farrington Out'.'
Captain Dick Farrington may not
be playing the game on Saturday so
that his injured leg will have plenty
of time to strengthen up for the Intercollegiate games on Nov. 9 and 11.
Roberts and Bourne are in fine shape
and are ready to show the gentle'-

should play.

Though Westminster has a heavy
and experienced squad they are going to run into a lot of tough opposition on Saturday, and the game is
going to be a fight where the bes'
team wins.

Whenever we think of Knedand in
connection with sports we think of
cricket. Cricket does not draw the
ciowds that are attracted to the soccer and rugby matches, for it lacks
the spectacular appeal that is found
in these games. It does, though, receive a tremendous amount of interest
from the public, for nearly every
schoolboy plays the game, and usually
crows up to be a cricket fan. As in
football, however, public interest is
foeussed upon the professional or club
matcTies'. rather than the game as
played in the schools and universities.
Most of the counties in England field
teams composed of both professionals
and amateurs. These teams play for
the "County Championship," the nearest thing in cricket to the Major
League baseball games in  America.
Test Matches
The climax of the cricket season
comes when a representative English
team, chosen from the county players,
meets a similar Australian team in an
annual series of matches for thc
"Ashes." Those matches are called
Test Matches, and this year's Test
Match with Australia resulted in a
small war, the echoes of which most
likely found their way into the Canadian press. Similar Test. Matches are
played with South Africa. India. New
Zealand, and the British West Indies.
Cricket Still Popular
In the last few years cricket has
been attacked by many sport writers
on the grounds that it is too slow
for the modern English boy. A large
svetion of English youth has lost interest in the game for this reason,
bu? it is so much a part of the athletic
programme of the schools and has so
many enthusiastic "Old Boys" that it
has lost littk' of its popularity.
Track Not Developed
A sport which has been more or less
neglected in the past by a great number of English schools and universities is traok or as it is known in England, athletics. The inability of Great
Rritain to makt? an impressive showing at. the Olympic Games has been
due to the fact that proper coaching
w«s not available at the average
school. Oxford and Cambridge have
de'.'i loped manv fatuous runners and
t'urdlors.    and    some    of    the    Public
I Schools have produced Olympic win-
I iier.t, but outside of these exceptions
tlie standard is very low. The provincial universities are now taking a new
interest in track, but the prospect of
this sport being popularised in the
schools is rather dim. The difficulty
is to find competent coaches, especially
in the field-events.
New Gaines
Various games are being introduced
into England from Canada ancl the
United States. Among these is ice-
hockey. Quite a number of amateur
teams have been organized, Oxford
University, thanks to their Canadian
students possessing the strongest. The
visit of an amateur Canadian team,
the Edmonton Superiors, to England
last winter, did much to popularize
ice-hockey. The game is handicapped
by the fact that most ice skating in
England must be done in rinks, but
in spite of this, it is gaining many
Basketball is also gaining a foothold in England, the London Polytechnic being one of the first schools
to take up the game. Several promin-
tnt London sport writers predicted a
great future for basketball in England, and there seems to bo no reason why it should not become as popular there as it is here.
Stil! another invader is baseball. It
has secured a foothold in the area
around Liverpool, where/ a number
of firmly established leagues are in
existence. The game has been slightly
altered, runs being scored by base
hits, so that a home run, for instance,
would count for four runs. Several
international baseball matches between England and Ireland were
played in the past year.
A sport very popular at the moment
is dirt-track racing, racing motorcycles being the steeds employed. This
sport, purely professional, came to
England from Australia a few yeaes
ago, and achieved instantaneous success.
The long list of the remaining amateur and professional sports, such as
horse racing, tennis, golf, boxing, and
Bobby Gaul, who after an absence
of two years, has returned to English
rugby, Gaul was, before he was
forced to retire from active competition due to illness, one of the most
outstanding players ever developed
at U.B.C.
There was little glory in the 26-10
victory of Don McTavish ancl his upperclassmen over the Frosh at the
salon de seaweed Wednesday afternoon, only four events of the scheduled grudge battle being run off.
Gordie Heron proved the individual
star of the'meet with a first in thc
hundred, seconds in the discus and
shot put, and a tie for first with
Max Stewart in the 200. In all he
collected 15 points, more than half of
the upperclass total.
Heron's Time Good
Heron's time for the 100 was good
considering the condition of the
track. He was given a close chase
by dark-horse Maurice Klinkhamcr
and stepped the century in 10.6. Lyle
Wilson  finished  third.
Martin Leads Frosh
Jack Martin lod the Frosh with 10
points, garnered with victories in the
discus and shot put. Agnew and Mc-
cammon didn't turn out.
Rain made the stadium pond even
worse than usual, with the result
that the 220 was shortened to 200 because of two huge "lakes" right in
the middle of the course.
The 440 and 3 mile will be run
next Wednesday.
Game At Brockton—
Varsity Confident
Of Easy Victory
Varsity Senior English Rugby squad
will meet Rowing Club on Saturday.
The game will be at Brockton Oval
and is to start at 3:15 p.m.
The game will start the second half
of the league competition and a win
lor either team will give it second
place standing. For that reason and
the fact that the teams are evenly
matched the game is expected to be
the most interesting of the day.
Gaul To Play!
Bobby Gaul, former Varsity star
and one of the greatest three-quarters
ever developed in B. C. English Rugby,
will play for Varsity on Saturday.
Bobby has been out the last two years
due to illness. On Saturday he will replace Dave Pugh who is on the injured list.
The lineup for the team has been
altered by Coach Tyrwhitt. Tyrwhitt
found that the front row scrum men
that played against North Shore All
Blacks hampered the smooth working
of the scrum because they were too
tall. For that reason, the scrum has
been changed around with Clement.
Mitchell and Pyle in the front row.
Second Division
The Intermediate English Fifteen
will play Ex-Techs at Douglas Park at
3 p.m.
The team has a cycle of a loss, a
draw, and a loss, so by statistics they
should win on Saturday. However,
Ex-Techs have a strong team and will
be more than able to provide competition for Varsity.
Third Division
The Third Division team did not
play last Saturday so the players are
eager for their game against Marpole.
They have been playing a series of
practice games against downtown
teams and expect to. win.
First Team
Clement,   Mitchell,   Harrison,   Upward, Pyle,  Hurley, Pearson, Morris,
Tye, Ken Mercer, Al. Mercer, Hager,
Leggat, Dalton, Gaul and Brand.
Second Team
Armstrong, Carrothers, Ellis, Sanderson, Wilson, Stead, Crothall, Macdonald, Johnston. Wood, McMullen,
Rennie, Maguire, Douglas, Madley.
Spares: Moodie, Sumner, Roberts,
Third Team
Colthurst, Dickie, Bladen, White-

Soccerites To Meet

The Soccer Seniors this Saturday
will be idle. However, the Junior's
will have plenty of work, on their
hands in the form of league leading
Vancouver Rangers. The Rangers
have yet to see defeat this season
and the college lads are going to
make sure that they do.
Varsity's line-up will undergo a
change. Orme will be in goal, with
Moodie and Darwin in the fullback
berths. "Rush" Thurber will be pivot

Before closing it would perhaps be
interesting to Inclose a few of the
phases of sport over here about which

In his introduction he sketches the
history of attempts at international
organization prior to 1914—e.g. the
European Alliance, the Hague Conference—and of the different steps in
the drafting of the covenant. In the
remainder of the book he describes
the development of the machinery
of the League, the organization of
world peace, and the growth of international cooperation.
The League has had to surmount
very great difficulties throughout its
career. It received a blow at the
start in the withdrawal of the United
States which upset all calculations
and reduced considerably the feeling
of security of all the Atates. During
the '20's it built up an organization
which surpassed in the range of its
activities anything that its founders
had contemplated. But the economic
depression, especially in its disastrous
effects on the Germany democracy,

"Cry Havoc!" is a startlingly passionate book by a popular young author who has, he says, "in the past
been pleased to use his pen only as
an instrument to trace pretty patterns . . . not as a battering ram to
break down the ugly walls of prejudice."
The prejudices are those multifarious beliefs which make war possible.
The book draws up a damning case
not only against war, but against any
who can countenace war.
Parts of the book are not absolutely new, such as the section on the
filthy workings of armament makers,
the hopeless antiquity of most present defence, the hypocracy of the vast
army of interested 'patriots'. (Though
can we know enough of this while
it persists?)
But the book is remarkable chiefly,
it seems to us, for its masterly analysis of Patriotism—as it is commonly
understood — in the chapter "The
Microbes of Mars." And for the
commonsense answer to the stock
'rape your sister' question of the
pseudo-patriot in the "Letter to a
Young Man." Indeed, the whole
tetter ....

It is impossible to read "Cry Havoc!" and remain unmoved, unshaken.
There is immense passion and sincerity in it. And in it there is equally unquestionable reason, whether it

The uniforms worn by the rugby

are a source of amusement to him.
The scenes which so often take place
at the baseball, as well as lacrosse and
ice hockey games, on this side of the
Atlantic, are beyond his understanding. He cannot see the reason for
the fights, squabbles, and other like
incidents which occur so much in
these games, even when played by
amateurs. The referees or the rules
that allow these happenings are a
source of wonderment to him.

The Ubyssey wishes to congratulate Dr.
George M. Weir, head of the Department of
Education in this University, on his election
as a member of the Provincial Legislature.   ^
This province needs men of recognized ability and high public character. Irrespective of
party, all will agree that Dr. Weir is eminently
fitted for his new position.
He is perhaps the most experienced educationalist in the province. He came to British
Columbia after acquiring a wide reputation
in Saskatchewan as a man of progressive
In this province one of his most distinctive
accomplishments was the famous Putnam-Weir
report on schools of which he was joint author.
Perhaps he will now be able to implement some
of the reforms there suggested.
As director of the University summer session he has built up an organizaton of unchallenged efficiency. His ability has also been
recognized by the Canadian Medical Association who appointed him to the commission on
Canadian nursing conditions. His presence
will be a decided asset to the legislature.
To many the prime attractions of student
activity are the Spring Play and the Comic
Opera presented annually by the leading Societies on the campus. It is a red letter day,
then, when we are able to confirm rumors, as
we do today, in publicly announcing the choice
of the Musical Society as the Gilbert ancl Sullivan favorite—"Mikado."
This is an ambitious undertaking, deserving
of success, but it must be understood by the
Society that if a creditable performance is to
emerge, the production must anyway be quite
as good as last year's "Iolanthe."
This does not simply involve the tireless efforts of organizers and enthusiasts, which indeed we have grown to expect, but chiefly the
expedient adopted last year of augmenting the
orchestra. The unfortunate but undeniable
fact that there is a deficit of competent instrumentalists among undergraduates must be
faced. And competent orchestral support is
essential in weaving the musical panorama
whose perfect structure is an essential setting
and inspiration for the singers.
Arthur Walrus and I always like to be topical, so our plan for subject matter today was to
be something political. But bitter, bitter blow,
we find the election is over. It takes more
than that, though, to make us swerve from our
purpose, so we're still going to talk about politics anyway. It is a vice in politics which is
not included in the long roster of vices which
the press so regularly pans, that we have
chosen for our subject.
It's the matter of hereditary politics. So
often one hears the new voter say, "Well,
Father was Liberal, so I wouldn't dare be anything else." It's such a futile attitude. One's
political belief should come only from one's
honest opinions.
Another common vice in picking a party is
choosing one for its dramatic appeal. "Conservative," one muses. "The word suggests the
substantial man behind the man behind the
throne. Conservative it is." Equally common
is the choice of a radical party, preferably Bolshevik. It must amuse the chooser to imagine that people suppose he goes about this
world with a bomb in his hip pocket, and eating babies between meals.
The man who devised the name, parlour
pinks, for the last group deserves the fur-lined
derby for aptness and terseness.
Both of these practices were what a certain
gentleman, Babbitt by name, so famous. Babbitt's only sin was that his honesty was buried so deep beneath an avalanche of self-deceit
that it suffocated.

Many professors are obsessed by the idea
that their own lectures are a very necessary adjunct of university education. They imagine
that the only way for students to obtain credits
is by absorbing erudite pearls of wisdom from
professorial lips.
It is about time that someone put them wise
to themselves. The average of lectures on this
campus is deplorably dull. One need only look
at the row upon row of nodding heads to realize the fatuity of it all. Why on earth should
intelligent students sit for interminable hours
in an atmosphere of diluted carbon monoxide
in order to hear a torrent of old truisms that
they can pick up in any moth-eaten text-book?
There are, of course, many exceptions. The
general fact remains, however, that most of
the lectures are a waste of time, energy and
brains. If the professor cannot arouse a spark
of interest in his class, he might as well dismiss the whole lot, and let them browse in the
stacks or magazine room, where some definite
information can be gleaned.
Not so very .long ago Mr. Butterfield, in
his column "The Common Round" in the
Province, hauled the Ubyssey staff over the
coals for a heading on the front page of our
fair journal. We admit he was right, but
nevertheless we do not pass lightly over criticisms.
We're not being deliberately brutal in again
raisin", the "who-whom" question about which.
Mr. Butterfield feels so sensitive, but wo would
like to point, out that a few days after our
error, the Province appeared with a headline
emblazoned across the front page, to wit:
"Whom" is not euphonious in .such a sentence, but regardless of that, a preposition
can take only one case after it, thc objective.
Headlines should be euphonious if possible but
the first essential is correctness.
• Think of all the Vancouver people who
simply scanned the heads, and turned immediately to Little Orphan Annie as so many
Vancouver people do, with the phrase clearly
in their memories, "Who To Vote For." It
might undermine the grammatical structure of
the city. 4

Before the Pep meeting on Wednesday we
happened to be wandering through the Auditorium hall while the angry mob was striving
to pay its nickles to get in. A small blonde
pushed her elbows into the people to her right
and left and was heard to mutter vitupera-
tively, "The trouble with this place is that it's
What would we use for copy if there were
no halls to overhear in !
The flowers out in front of the Auditorium
have got a very long name, we're not sure
if it's hydrangea or rhododendron but we do
know something interesting about them. Have
you noticed the way they go pink on the
edges? Well, the way you combat the tendency is by the application of vinegar. They'll
turn blue again if you do that.
You might get a medal from the Humane
Society if you were to carry a little bottle of
vinegar about with you, and sprinkle it liberally on all frayed blossoms. You'd better be
sure it's vinegar in the bottle, though.
