Tennis Doubles Captured by Miss
Kloepfer and Baker—Singles
by Miss Tatlow.
The presentation of tennis trophies
at the mass meeting, last Thursday
noon, brought to an end one of the
most successful tournaments ever held
in 'Varsity tennis circles. Over a hundred students took part in the games,
and some brilliant tqnnis was produced from the weeks' play. Lorimer
Baker walked off with the lion's share
of the honors, and captured, the cups
in the men's doubles, mixed doubles,
: and men's singles.
I The feature match of the last day's
■play was undoubtedly the men's doubles. Turnbull and Hinck were opposed to Munro and Baker, and started
play at_noon. Playing excellent tennis
and fighting all the way, the players
went through four games, and at 2.30
each side was credited with two sets.
Turnbull showed slight signs of distress, as also did Munro, but Baker
and Hinck seemed quite fresh after
the afternoon's gruelling work. It
was anyone's game when the players
again faced each other. All four men
fought hard and played extremely fine
tennis, Baker and Munro being fortunate enough to win the final set, 12

Players' Club Finally Choose the
"High Priest/' Written by
Miss Anderson.
"The High Priest," a one-act play by
Miss Annie M. Anderson of this year's
senior class, will be produced by the
Players' Club at its annual Christmas
performances in the college auditorium on November 23, 24 and 25. To
Miss Anderson goes the honor of being the first student of the University
to have her work accepted for presentation by the club.
As the successful candidate in competition with six other undergraduates,
Miss Anderson wins the $50 prize
offered by the Players' Club. Her play
deals with a dramatic incident in British India.
Other selections for the Christmas
performances have been announced by
Prof. F. G. C. Wood of the Players'
Club. 'The Dark Lady of the Sonnets," a comedy of witticism at the
expense of William Shakespeare by
George   Barnard   Shaw;    "Rococo,"   a
farce comedy depicting a family
squabble, by Granville Barker, and
"On Vengeance Height," by Allan
Davis, constitutes the remainder of
the programme. The play by Davis is
a tense presentation of a family feud
and is interesting as being the product of the Little Theatre movement
in America with which the Players'
Club is actively associated.
Varsity lost to Native Sons at
Brockton Point on Saturday, after one
of the most closely contested and exciting games recently seen in Vancouver.    The score was 8-5.
The college men started the game
with great energy and kept the play
in their opponents' territory during
practically the whole of the first half.
The first score of the game came
some ten minutes from the opening
of play. A scrum was formed about
fifteen yards in front of Native Sons'
goal. The dark-blue forwards heeled
but before their half could get rid of
the ball he was tackled by McVittie
who had broken away very fast. The
ball was put down and Gregg, coming
through, got it at his feet, picked it
up almost at once and went over the
line close to the posts. Plummer converted, giving Varsity a five-point
lead. Play until half-time furnished a
thrilling contest with the college having the better of it, though no further
score resulted.
After half-time Native Sons started
pressing. Varsity had set a very fast
pace in the first half and apparently
their condition was not quite good
enough to enable them to maintain it
in the second. Native Sons' weight
at once began to tell.   Though pressed
back Varsity continued to tackle hard
and their opponents, who were undoubtedly putting up a splendid game,
had to work very hard for the points
they gained. Early in the half Tyrr-
whit got away on the right wing but
was tackled at the corner flag and
carried into touch in goal. Some minutes later Stewart of the Native Sons'
ran through and came round for a
try behind the posts. This was converted, tying the score and increasing
the already great interest of the game.
Native Sons' continued to force the
play and more than once came near
scoring. Within ten minutes of time
Tyrrwhit got away again in a run
which resulted in a try. The kick
was unsuccessful. Varsity now found
some of their former energy and spent
the remainder of the match in a desperate attempt to equal or better their
opponents' score. Cameron got away
once for Varsity but Stewart collared
him when he seemed to have some
chance of scoring and no points were
added. With the light Varsity team
condition is such as essential factor
that the least lack of it is at once apparent. Apart from this lack and
some rather unaccountable fumbling
of the ball by the backs the team

Society Obtains Services of Mr.
Grant as  Their New
The Musical Society's Christmas
concert will take place in the middle
of December. A series of educational
afternoons is being arranged to follow. There will be short lectures on
the fundamentals of music delivered
by prominent musical authorities,
which should prove very instructive
and interesting to all lovers of music.
The Musical Society considers itself
very fortunate in having obtained the
services as conductor of Mr. Grant,
organist and choirmaster of the First
Batist Church. Mr. Grant, a pupil of
Voght, did solo piano work in Toronto,
and recently in Edmonton. His choir
won the prize at the Alberta Festival.
Since coming to Vamcouver a year ago
Mr. Grant has won much favourable
comment on his work at the First
Baptist Church.
To-morrow noon has been set for
the time when the whole student body
will gather in the auditorium to hear
and approve the plans for Varsity
Week. This is the most important
meeting that has yet been called by
the committee. Every student who
has the interest of his Alma Mater at
heart must and will be there.
"Tell them to turn out in full
strength," said President Ab. Richards
to the Ubyssey yesterday. "We are
approaching the crucial point, the
climax, of our campaign and the success of the whole scheme depends
upon the plans being very carefully
laid, generally understood, and faithfully followed. This meeting is the
council of war before the attack."
The Final Preparations Are Completed For Celebration of
Campaign Week.
"We ain't no government's darling,
we're as poor as can be," was the
dominant tone of the Publicity Campaign meeting Friday noon. Not blue
as can be, remember, but poor; and if
Mr. Jupe  Pluvius will  only hold  the
fort a little longer we'll well watch
out for Varsity week.
President Richards" placed before
the meeting a plan, ^suggested py
Professor P. A. Bovtog Snd; approved
by the Campaign Committee, of building a memorial cairn on the University site at Point Grey.- The building
of this memorial will^terminate Varsity Week. The stone is to be assembled by the students and will be dedicated to the Alma Mater Society op
October 28, following the pilgrimage.
"To the glory of our Alma Mater, we,
the   students     of    the     University  of
British Columbia, build this cairn,"
will be the inscription engraved upon
one of the tablets. Of course there
is a certain amount of method in this
madness, for all things are to be done
under the eye of the moving picture
camera. Following the dedication
everyone will mount the skeleton, of
the new science building and a picture will be taken. Another spectacle
for the camera will be the arrangement of the pilgrims into the letters
U. B. C. And speaking of the camera,
Mr. Richards stated that arrangements were being made to have movies taken of our "Fabled Halls" in all
their massed congestion. Mr. Jack
Clyne made the following statement
which is worthy of repetition: "If you
happen to be in a theatre and there
is a campaign slide flashed on the
screen, jump up on your seat and
make a joyful noise; start "Kitsilano"
or "Catfish" or something."
That the work of the students in
their energetic prosecution of the
Publicity Campaign has won the admiration and congratulations of all is
manifested by the statement of President L. S. Klinck to the Ubyssey on
his return from the School Trustees'
convention held at Penticton recently.
"No effort on the part of the authorities has ever attracted the attention of the public as has the campaign
now being carried on by the students
for the removal of the University to
Point Grey," he said. "Their enthusiasm is contagious. Everywhere one
goes questions are asked as to the
progress of the campaign and best
wishes are expressed for the success
of the movement. The initiative, resource and energy with which the
canvass is being prosecuted has
caught and fired the imagination of
men and women in all parts of the
province." THE      UBYSSEY

Its Origins, Uses and Tendencies
By Tisiphone
"A shocking example," said Mr.
Ridington, emphatically. "Originally
constructed for the facilitation of
studies, it has displayed an ever increasing tendency to deviate from this
lofty intention and to display an utterly unwarranted ability in furthering
opportunities for philandering. Sir,"
said Mr. Ridington severely, "I repeat
the word, philandering." "Dreadful,"
we shuddered, comprehending at once
that someone had been stealing the
precious books. "Can nothing be
done?" "Nothing," he murmured
brokenly.    "Once  it was  a  haunt  of
learning, but now "
Infinite   Variety
"Nonsense!" said Miss Jefferd,
quietly, yet with a certain force
that carried conviction. "Haunt?
Learning? Ridiculous! It may have
been built for that purpose but I feel
that the study complex exists only in
isolated cases. The uses of the ladders, the advantages of the passages,
the possibilities of the corner next to
my desk, are many and various, but

suggested, "will not the new regulations revive the atmosphere of academic calm, and transform the Stack
Room into a haven of peace?" We
waited for a reply. None was forthcoming.
It   Has  No  Tendencies
"The Stack Room, my dear sir,"
said Mr. Haweis, "has no tendencies.
Nothing could be worse than present
conditions. Do you expect them to
tend to grow better?" "Ah!" we
murmured, sympathetically, "you refer to the lack of accommodation?"
"No," he answered, with that wistful
look which always means that the
wearer thereof is looking back at
192-1-22, "I refer to the fact that some
things about the Stack Room have
been too accommodating." It was too
much. Origins lost, uses bad, tendencies worse—we fled from the
Stack Room and rushed to get our
At a meeting of the Arts Women's
Undergrad three representatives, Miss
Eve Eveleigh, Miss Jean Davidson and
Miss Doris Shorney, were elected to
co-operate with a similar number and
members from the Arts Men's Undergrad in the erection of a float for the
Publicity  Campaign.
Miss Annie Anderson outlined the
plans for the winter. Besides the
Prefects' tea held last week, there is
to be another this term for outside
girls, and one more after Christmas.
Near the end of January it is intended that a vocational conference
be held. This will take the form of
half-hour talks by various speakers on
the subject "Vocations for Women."
The conference is to be held if possible on a Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday of the same week.
The first meeting of the Engineering Discussion Club will be held on
Tuesday noon, the 24th, in the first
year Science class room.
Mr. Lighthall will speak on the
"Economic Status of the Engineer,"
and Mr. Mathers on "The Fishing Industry of B. C."
This is to be an opejn meeting and
all who are interested in the engineering topics of the day are invited
to attend.
The lectures given at this Club are
all by men who have a personal knowledge  of their subjects.
The first meeting of the Chemistry
Society was held in the Physics lecture room oh October 10. The president of the Society, Bill Graham, Sc.
'23, was in the chair and outlined the
work and aims of the Society. In his
remarks he stated that what was
wanted was not so much a large membership as a live and active Society.
Students taking Chemistry were especially invited, but an invitation is
extended to all interested.
Dr. Archibald, the honorary president, gave a very interesting address
on one of the latest experiments in
chemistry, the disintegration of the
tungsten atom. Dr. Archibald dealt
with the disintegration of radio-active
substances and also mentioned Rutherford's experiment in which he broke
up some of the lighter elements by
bombarding them with alpha rays
from Radium "C." Then he gave a
very instructive and interesting account of this latest experiment, performed in Chicago, ifn which the
heavy metal tungsten was broken up
into helium.
The next meeting of the Society will
be held Tuesday evening. The subject will be announced on the notice
Everyone has heard about the
Varsity Press Bureau but there are
few who realize its significance and
far-reaching importance. By means
of a Press Publicity Campaign, the
Varsity Press Bureau is endeavoring
to get in touch with every monthly,
semi-weekly and daily published in
this province. In these publications
news-letters are to be printed regularly. The idea is to let every voter
in the province know the difficulties
under which the students of the University of British Columbia are working. This Press Bureau is not merely
a transient affair, but it is the hope
of those who are working upon it
that it may, in time, become the distributing centre of university news
throughout the  province.
Mr. A. F. Roberts of the Vancouver
Daily Province, Mr. H. M. Cassidy,
editor of The Ubyssey, and Mr. D. M.
Mclntyre, Arts '23, are directing the
Press Publicity Campaign. Already
two newsletters have been forwarded
to the different publications which
have promised their support. These
letters have dealt principally with the
Student Campaign. Some idea of the
success with which the publicity campaign is meeting will be realized
when it is learned that already these
news-letters are being printed in publications which have a total circulation of 150,000.
Blue skies and glorious sunshine
helped to make the Glee Club hike
on Saturday a great success.
The party scrambled down the
steep trail at the Lynn Valley car
terminus and deposited coats, hats
and "eats" by the side of the creek.
The party then set off up the Lynn
Valley road, and following the Seymour trail crossed the divide ajnd descended into the next valley. The
Seymour road was explored for some
distance, and it was only the thought
of supper at five that finally prompted
the party to retrace its steps.
When the hikers returned they
found a huge can of tea steaming by
the campfire, so they sat down gratefully and proceeded to dispose of the
varied eatables.
As befitted a Glee Club, camp-fire
songs and rounds were sung until it
grew dark. Then there was a mad
scramble up the steep trail which had
somehow become strangely unfamiliar
to those not possessed of "night-eyes,"
and an hilarious and joyful journey
to town.

Sapperton, aided by the greatest of
good luck, were successful in holding
Varsity to a one all draw at Powell
Street, Saturday, after a somewhat
listless game.
The suburbanites won the toss and
elected to play with the sun. In spite
of this advantage Varsity pressed
hard and ten minutes after the opening of the first half Johnny McLeod
scored on a pass from Lundie.
This aroused Sapperton and several
times they were extremely dangerous.
During a sally into our territory,
Cross, the suburbanites' center, gained
possession of the ball. Buckley, in
an effort to check him, caught the
ball on his heel, and it bounded

unfortunate accident, although no
blame whatever can be attached to

The Track Meet, which will be held
in the spring, is one of the biggest
things at the college.
The Arts '20 Relay, so called because a cup was presented by Arts '20
as its valedictory gift for the relay
race from the Point Grey site to the
University buildings in Fairview, will
also be held in the spring. Eight men
will form each team and the course
is about eight miles long, each man
running one mile. This is another
big event. Last year the Aggies won
out after a hard fight.

sports they should be well patronized.

The announcement from the Bursar's office that Returned Soldiers attending the University would be required to pay full fees this session has
caused no little stir among the men
affected and has been a very unwelcome surprise to all of them.
Since the conclusion of the war it
has been the policy of the University
to levy no fees from Returned Men,
as some compensation for the economic disadvantage to which they
were put on account of their military
service. The administration authorities are still in sympathy with their
former policy but find themselves in
the awkard position of having no
funds available to carry it on this
year and have been reluctantly compelled to make the decision that has
been announced.
The position of the University is
very evident, and the position of the
Returned Soldier students is also quite
clear. The University had practically
given them an assurance that they
would be immune from the obligation
of paying fees duriftig the period of
their studying here. The sudden pronouncement that this rule would be
changed has meant to most of them
not only an apparent breaking of faith,
but the imposition of an additional
financial burden which they will find
extremely difficult, and in some cases,
impossible to bear.
There seems to be but one hope for
a solution of the difficulty that will be
satisfactory and fair to both parties.
This is the obtaining from the government of a small grant sufficient to
cover the remission of fees to the
Returned Men. The whole question
is to be discussed at a meeting of the
Board of Governors tomorrow night,
we believe, and we venture to suggest that they make strong representation to the government for assistance. Dr. McLean has already expressed himself as being in sympathy
with the plan of remission of fees
and should be willing to show his
sympathy in a concrete way.
In a letter written to a friend from
his residence at Ferney, Voltaire
says, "I am absolutely opposed to
jour ideas, but I shall always defend
your right to express them." The
great philosopher had grasped this
fact; it is better to let erroneous beliefs flourish than to stifle the expression of all belief. If tares come up
with the wheat, it is to be deplored,
but the right of the wheat to live is
more important than the fact that
the tares ought to be destroyed.
Similarly, it is better to give even unsound or freakish ideas a hearing than
to silence all expression.
There are conservative ones who do
not agree with the above opinion. We
have heard them say that some form
of legislation should prevent discussion of social problems in University
organizations. To these people such
gatherings are hotbeds of Bolshevism
and menace the social order. But
where is discussion possible at all, if
these questions cannot be discussed
in a restrained and orderly debating
society, where there is just enough
academic atmosphere to create an impersonal detachment and to banish
personal bitterness?
We are not apologising for violent
youthful bursts for or against the
"capitalistic system." We are not advocating any guiding principle for
these discussions, except the principle
of free speech. And it would be a
retrograde step indeed were the University to be deprived of the right
to speak boldly and openly. Can we
retain in our civilization me privilege
that our savage ancestors granted to
every freeman, or do modern conditions force us to submit all our opinions to a censor?
The following words have been suggested for use in the campaign parade.
They  are  to   be  sung  to  a  Harvard
marching tune.    Be sure to bring this
copy of the Ubyssey to the meeting
on  Friday.    It  will  then   be  decided
which set is to be used.
"We're thru' with tents and hovels,
We're done with shingle stain,
That's why we want you to join us
And carry our campaign.
The government can't refuse us,
No matter what they say,
For we'll get the people voting
For our new home at Point Grey.
Blue and gold—keep our colours flying
On the march to victory—

and announced the plans for the forthcoming season. Prof. Saddler was
elected as Honorary President of the
Club. The President then called on
Dean Clement and Prof. Saddler, who
both gave very interesting addresses
and wished the Club the best of success. Prof. Saddler gave some very
good pointers on debating. Phillips
then announced that the next meeting
would be held the following Wednesday. The subject for discussion will
■be: "Resolved, that a 48-hour week
be adopted on the farm," with Messrs.
Buckley and Murphy the negative and
Messrs. Atkinson and Fulton the affirmative.
Last Thursday noon there was a
meeting of the Aggie Undergrad, iin
which plans for the Aggie banquet to
be held tomorrow at the Citizens Club
were made. President Woods addressed the meeting. A committee of five
was appointed, a representative from
each department, to arrange for the
parade on the 28th. Messrs. Blair, Cavers, Rive, Fulton, and Wilcox were
appointed in this capacity.
An alteration has been made in the
Institute programme next week. Mr.

on "Artistic Lying," will be held over
until the end of the session as it will
of course, be seasonable at any time.

Editor   "Ubyssey."
Dear   Sir:
Allow me to take advantage of your
popular paper to ask a question. Are
the Freshmen asleep? That is what I
asked myself last Saturday at the
Freshmen vs. Varsity III. rugby game,
when I saw the side lines bare of
Freshmen roters.
"Fresmen, do you expect the rugby
team which is representing you on the
field to win when you haven't the courage to turn out to support them?" I
think I'm safe in saying the Freshmen
got no support whatsoever in last Saturday's game nor did they get any the
week before. Lack of encouragement
is partly the reason why we lost the
last game. There were no Freshmen
there to rot. Is it not, dear editor, an
eyesore to see such a poor turnout
from  such  a  large  class?
Wake up Freshmen! Do you not
sometimes hear these words in this
sleep which has crept over you? Show
signs of life, do not be book-worms on
Saturday afternoons when you should
be out supporting your team. You are
illegally sharing what honors your team
is winning. Wake up from that eternal
sleep and show the rest of the University that there is a Freshmen class
here this year as there has been in
previous  years.
Yours truly,
ARTS   '24   HIKE.
Last Saturday at 1.40, the Junior
year again led Varsity class activities when they jaunted off on a hike
to Capilano. The weather was ideal
and an enjoyable afternoon and evening were spent "exploring, eating and
dancing." One of the surprises of the
day was to find on reaching the second
canyon paviliqn that it was crowded
to the doors with Normal students;
this being the occasion of their big
hike. However they soon departed,
and the members of '24 were left in
undisputed enjoyment of the pavilion.
After a "gorgeous repast" dancing was
the order of the day, and it was a
great relief to be able to dance in
some degree of comfort and forget
the overcrowding of the ,night before
at the "annual stampede." At 8 the
party started on the downward journey and caught the 9.20 ferry home.
Mrs. Eastman, Miss Kathleen Peck
and Miss Eastman accompanied the
party and enjoyed the hike as much
as any of the members of Arts '24.

At a meeting of the Frosh held last
Monday, Walter Patrick was elected
the president of Arts '26.
Hunter Lewis, president of the Arts
men, presided over the meeting. He
spoke a few words to the Freshmen
urging them to choose as their executive the men and women best suited
for the positions. He asked that they
vote for the men on their merits and
to forget any high school relations.
He urged the men to support their
college, their faculty and their class
in all the college activities.
The class executive of Arts '26 is:
President, Walter Patrick; vice-president, Roberta Thurston; marshall,
Wilbur Sparks; secretary, Agnes
King; treasurer, Russel Palmer; deputy treasurer, Freda Edgett; me'n's
literary representative, P. Selwood;
women's literary representative, Jean
Faulkner; men's athletic representative, Edwin C. Darts; women's athletic
representative, Eleanor Nicholson.
The Frosh did not choose an honorary president but will do so at the
next meeting of the class.
Eddie Darts is getting his men
ready for their several tests and
promises to give the other years a
close run for the Governor's  Cup.
Say, did you see that sign in the
Hall—"Wanted, two girls to take two
Freshmen to Reception—ones with
car preferred"? Bill and me done
that. We sure got some good replies,
but we just naturally thought we'd
better take two Freshettes and give
'em a good time. Bill said the easiest
way to take 'em would be to meet 'em
at the corner of Robson and Hornby
—and so we did. Say, that place was
crammed! Bill and me filled our programs right away, but we saved two
dances for the girls. We sure had one
good time—ajid let me tell you, the
best part of all was them FIVE supper dances and the moonlight waltz.
(I had it with the little bobbed blonde
-—Bill had it with the vamp.)
When it was all over, Bill and me
helped dispose of the rest of the eats,
giving the girls plenty of time to fuss.
Gosh, we had an awful time getting
out through the crowd! Weren't we
glad we told the girls to meet us outside! "I'll bet them Freshettes will
be glad to get into a street car and
go home," says Bill; but—they hadn't
come out yet. Then Bill poked me.
"Look," says he—and what do you
think? Those two Freshettes were
getting into one of them yellow taxis
with two science fellers. Can you
beat it?

A plan of student supervision of
the stack room after six p.m., instituted this year by the members of
the senior classes and grads using
the stack room, is working admirably,
according to the librarian.
Under the present scheme members
of the upper year and grads desiring
stack room privileges are permitted
to use the stack room for study between six,and ten every night. They
have organized themselves into a body
and each evening one of their number
is put in complete charge and it is
his or her duty to report any breach
of stack room etiquette to Mr. Ridington.
A register is also kept by the student in charge and each is required to
sign before being assigned to one of
the desks. It is hoped that by the
inauguration of such a scheme such
minor disturbances as have arisen in
the past through thoughtlessness will
be eliminated.
The jinx that has been following
the Varsity second soccer eleven ran
true to form last Saturday at Clarke
Park, when our representatives in the
Third Division lost to the strong St.
Saviour team by a score of 7-2. The
game was fast from start to finish,
and the players worked hard up till
the final whistle. Varsity, however,
was weak in defence and at times
simply could not hold the opposing
forwards. With more practice and
the injection of more combination in
their play, the second team will no
doubt improve. Up to date there have
been too many changes in the line-up
to bring forward an efficient, successful team.
As Tuesday's meeting of the Sigma
Delta Kappa was the first of the year,
Mr. Goodwin, the president (acting as
speaker in the parliament), gave a
short address for the sake of the newcomers.
He enlarged upon the aims of the
Society and it advantages as a training
ground for public speakers.
The leaders of the opposition, Mr.
J. S. Burton and Miss E. Griffiths then
brought in a bill urging the discontinuance of the present nationalization policy of Canada with regard to railways.
They averred that governments were
not primarily interested in making
railroads pay and would thus take
greater risks than private companies;
often for political purposes. In a few
rare instances government operation
had been successful, but only as the
result of political, economic and financial conditions in no way analagous
to conditions existing in Canada. In
the great majority of countries where
It has been tried, government ownership had failed hopelessly—for instance, in Australia and the United
The Premier, Mr. W. Martin, and
Miss Helen McGill, defended the government's policy. They contended
that government ownership was an
advantage in the elimination of duplication in routs, and that, consequently,
the public received better service than
by private companies. It was shown
that government operation in France
and Germany had been successful.

Well, neither Miss Nilly or J got
into the Players' Club: It's a funny
thing, too, because we're both good
looking. However, we've both joined
the Outdoors Club so we don't care.
I'll tell you how it happened. You
know that list that was down in the
front hall; that list where the men
and women who wanted to belong to
the Outdoors Club signed their names?
Well, I happened to be looking the
thing over one day last week when
whose name should I see there but
Miss Nilly's. Of course I didn't care
about that, but I just began thinking
what a fine thing the Outdoors Club
is. It is the only club that gives you
a chance to get in touch with the big,
clean outdoors ajnd the beauties of
nature. Without further thought I
wrote my name under hers. None of
your Players' Club stuff for me; me
for the open road every time.
Our first trip was up Grouse, last
Saturday and Sunday. There were
about twenty of us including Miss
Nilly and me. The first part of the
climb was pretty steep and us fellows had to give the girls a hand-up,
but we didn't mind: I happened to
get Miss Nilly. After a while we
reached the Club's cabin. As soon as
we got there the fellows stripped off
their sweaters and started cleaning
the place up. I was feeling a bit
tired myself so I just sat around and
told the rest of the bunch what to do.
It looked pretty decent after I had
finished. And so the time went on.
Sunday morning we made lots of expeditions from the cabin, sometimes
the whole bunch of us together and
sometimes just a few of us alone. But
I'll have to cut out the details.
On Sunday afternoon we started
down. Our descent was rather sudden but by the time we got onto the
level it was pretty dark. And now
comes the most interesting part of
all. The rest of the crowd were walking too fast, so Miss Nilly and I were
forced to lag behind. I says to her,
"Feeling pretty tired, Miss Nilly?"
and she says, "Oh no, Mr. Cork, but
I wish you wouldn't call me Miss
Nilly." Then I says, "What'll I call
you then?" and she says, "Call me

"Free education is the only free
thing in the world which does pot
pauperize its recipients," said Dean
Coleman, in his address to the Students' Movement on Monday last. The
speaker dwelt on the element of personal sacrifice involved in the acquiring of a college education, and showed how this spirit had given rise to
the S. C. M.
"The ideal of the Student Christian
Movement has a distinct appeal to the
college student, because it satisfies
his emotional nature and at the same
time it has a rational appeal to his
intellect," continued the speaker.
Mr. H. Allen, the President of the
S. C. M., announced that the next
meeting would be held on Monday
noon, in Room Z, when E. R. McLean,
the Secretary of the Religious and
Educational Council of B. C, would
address  the  students.
The Arts Men's Undergrad Society
had its first meeting on Friday last.
Prof. H. T. Logan, Honorary President, addressed the meeting and pointed out the opportunities which awaited the college trained man.
The various members of the executive were introduced to the Freshmen,
and Messrs. Shore, Stripger and Pollock were elected to look after the
Arts float in the Pilgrimage Parade.
At its last meeting the Women's
Lit decided against amalgamation
with the Men's Literary Society.
Miss Ruth McWilliams and Miss
Phyllis -Gregory were elected by acclamation to the positions of secretary and treasurer respectively.
The next meeting of the Society
will be held Wednesday, October 25,
at 3 p.m. in the Auditorium. A debate between Arts '23 and '24 has
been arramged.

for Willamette this year with two of

reasons: To give the graduate students a status in the University, and
to obtain the co-operation of the different faculties with one another in
post graduate work. This School aims
to be Dominion-wide. Thus graduates
will be encouraged to pursue their
post graduate studies In Canada rather than in the United States.

such a rule at U. B. C!

Dean Brock Tells of Experiences in
Near East
The Institute Lecture for Thursday,
October the nineteenth, will be given
on a most timely subject: "Conditions
in the Near Bast." The speaker, Dean
Brock, offers the students a unique
opportunity for obtaining first hand in
formation. As a member of the Egyp
tian Expeditionary Force during the
war, he had many chances of studying
the Eastern question, and of meeting
men who had made it their life interest. He also spent the summer months
of this year in Constantinople; "in
fact," said Dean Brock, "we thought
that we would have to stay in Con
stantinople and fight against the
Greeks. However, those who wished
to leave the city were allowed to depart in a 'test train,' that is, one which
was sent out to discover if war had
really begun."
The information was soon forthcom
ing as the train was seized as soon
as it entered the Greek lines. The
University nearly received a wire an
nouncing the disappearance of the
Dean of Applied Science "for the dura
tion," but after the prisoners had been
examined the train was allowed to pro-
cede to the Bulgarian frontier.
The football season is in full swing
again, and so is the fall trade, and
Clelland has his team feeling fit, well
trained and organized and ready to

Clelland expects to be kept busy,
as he believes he has scored the first
goal of the season.
