U.B.C. Loses
Rugby Match
—SCORE, 7-8
Saturday afternoon the last double-
header of the city Rugby schedule was
played at Brockton Point. These games
served . as elimination contests in the
knockout series for the Tisdall Cup. As
a result of this meet, Firemen and Centrals will play the final on the week-end.
The good old winter sport, however, is
fast passing out of season, and King
Sol, in true spring form, caused a noted
slackening in the Ruggers' pace and a
reduced gathering of enthusiasts. In the
curtain-raiser, the patched-up 'Varsity
squad fell before the onslaughts of the
husky fire-fighters, after making a close
bid for honors. Methinks the innocent-
looking chart, labelled "Time-Table," so
conspicuously posted at U.B.C, plus the
flux of social events, has rather dampened the ardor for outdoor spor.ts. Yet,
to be frank, the Firemen, fielding a
strong team, showed great improvement
over past performances, and undoubtedly deserved their victory. The blue and
gold supporters at the game gave very
little evidence of their presence. This
tendency to hush up, when the score
looks bad, is not consistent with a true
brand of college spirit.
At the start of the game the fire-fighters' forwards commenced a dribbling
advance, which they used continually to
good advantage. The 'Varsity boys
lacked their old team play and held their
own by kicking for touch. After about
ten minutes of loose Rugby, Ternan received a pass and put the college in the
lead with a thirty-five-yard drop-kick.
With four points against them, the Firemen started pressing, and in a few minutes their captain crossed for the first
touch. The kick to convert was a little
wide of the mark, so the score remained
4-3 for 'Varsity. Toward the end of the
half 'Varsity forced the play, but could
not secure a try. This first period was
marked by very poor tackling.
The second session opened much like
the first. After about five minutes of
loose play, the Firemen fought their way
in close to the 'Varsity line and scored
a try from a loose scrum. The kick to
convert was good, and the "U" boys
were now on the short end of the count.
H. Gwyther started a rally soon after,
but the college efforts fell a little short
of the goal. The 'Varsity scrum were
heeling out good at this stage, but the
back was not clearing in time, and some

Plans for Theatre
Party Completed
Coming straight from a three years'
engagement at the world's exposition
at Beaconsfield, the Lesser Organ
Dancers, from whom the Greater Morgan Dancers have taken their ideas, will
appear at the Orpheum Theatre. On account of the great expense involved in
securing this mammoth spectacle, Manager Pilling is presenting it for one
night only. It is a fortunate coincidence
that the University theatre night is also
billed for this evening.
The cast includes such well-known
stars as Mile. "Lefty" Nelson, as "The
Bearded Queen';; Mr. Johnny Berto, as
"The King of the Bums"; and Miss
Jeannie Weld, who takes the part of
"The Neglected Queen." Al. Russell
is said to be a riot as the "Beer Carrier," while Sid. Anderson and Bill
Hatch are very efficient slaves. The famous Broadway (East) chorus will be
there with their numerous changes of
costume. Never before has such an array of "feminine" beauty been collected
behind one row of footlights.
In addition to the headliner, two other
extra attractions will be offered. Lacey
Fisher and Dave Taylor are presenting
an old-fashioned melodrama which will
bring tears to the eyes of Seniors and
Freshmen alike, and may evtn make the
Science men weep. An act which should

"Are you engaged for each of the
twelve 'bands'?" I heard a latecomer ask
of a fair lady at the rink last Wednesday
night. "Well, then, may I have the joy
of this interval?" was his responding
query to her affirmative answer. It was
not refused; so he signed his name on
the back of an old envelope, which she
presented to him for that purpose, anc>
off they skated, and left me seated there
in the rendezvous.
But when the music commenced I had
my turn. The ice was fresh and smooth;
the strains of the band seemed for once
to induce a rhythmic motion, and the
fresh cool air of the arena filled the
lungs and enlivened the blood. The success of the event was assured.
In addition to the band, much amusement was provided by Mr. Heaslip and
his fair partner, who were very success-

Arts '23 Holds
Class Party
Far be it from us to opine that it was
the best class party of the year; not because we don't believe so, but we fear
nobody else would. But, at any rate, it
was some function; and when, at twelve
sharp, the orchestra played God Save the
King, everyone muttered a few really
heartfelt remarks about students' councils and early closing by-laws.
Right here we want to correct an impression, existing among Seniors and
others, in the sere and yellow, that
Freshman parties begin with a distribution of peanuts, and continue through
hopscotch, hide-and-seek, ring-around-a-
rosy, and molasses candy, to a culmination of ice cream and doughnuts. We
want it distinctly understood that we
were a real grown-up gathering; most of
us had our hair up, and wore high-heeled
slippers; and we had programmes and
patronesses 'n' everything.
Of the 350 present, the greater part
were dancers, although there were games
in the common room for those who preferred them. The patronesses were:
Mrs. Klinck, Mrs. Larsen, Mrs. McDonald, Mrs. Clark, and Miss Simoson; and,
with the exception of Mrs. MacDonald,
who is ill. they were all good enough to
attend. Representatives of the executives of every class in Arts, Science and
Agriculture turned out, as in duty bound,
and did not seem to find the duty too
The decorations, for which we have
mostly to thank President Hunter and
brother Al., were undoubtedly streets
ahead of anything seen at the 'Varsity
this year. Indeed, one could hardly
recognize our prosaic classrooms in
their festive garments of evergreens and
colored lights. We have heard it said
that any room graced by such a galaxy
of beauty as is presented by the assembled damsels of Arts '23 needs no further decoration. The effect of this superlative feminine pulchritude, plus decorations, can be better imagined than
A notable feature was the number of
cynical and disillusioned upper class
men who drifted in to try and regain
their lost faith in human nature by an
evening's association with the carefree
Frosh, and incidentally to consume such
huge amounts of supper that there was
a  slight shortage.
All thanks to the class executive, who
worked like Trojans to make the affair
the success it was. THE   UBYSSEY

On Saturday afternoon the three acts
of the A. E. W. Mason comedy were
staged in full in the Auditorium, and the
audience .of Players' Club members decided that "Green Stockings" would
"come off all right on that night," as is
the saying in "Stalky & Co." Miss
Dorothy Adams and Mr. Bruce Fraser
seem to take a real pleasure in their
sprightly battle of wits, and carry the
leading roles with distinction. Mr. Art.
Lord manages his charming family with
his usual urbanity; whilst Misses K.
Leveson, D. Gill and A. Berkeley seem
to enjoy obeying his commands. Miss
Miller, as Aunt Ida, has an excellent
chance to show her skill as a comedian,
as have Lou Hunter and Hibbert Scott
as two blase, conventional Englishmen.
Lacey Fisher is delightfully idiotic as
Bobbie, and Joe de Pencier has attained
an unexpected austerity as the testy Admiral. Alphonse Crawford, after two
weeks' illness, has resumed his butler's
cart, and is the twelfth member of this
interesting group. After the rehearsal
on Saturday the company -was entertained at tea at the home of Mrs. W. H.
Wood, where Mr. Lord and Miss Berkeley entertained as "readers of cups."

The Economics Discussion Club met
on Thursday evening last. Dr. T. P.
Hall addressed the club on "Social Evolution." The speaker demonstrated that
evolution is universal. Illustrating by
means of charts, he traced the development of matter into cells, of cells into
animals, and finally the develonment of
man in societv. Comparing societv as at
present constituted to the bodv with its
various organs, Dr. Hall showed that all
its parts are necessary, and that no
member can be allowed to suffer without
harm to all the rest.
The speaker then traced the growth of
industry from the stages of savagerv
and barbarism to the present. The world
has passed, since the beginning of civilization, through the stages of chattel
slavery, serfdom, and feudalism, to the
present wage system. The next stage
w'll be that of industrial democracy, in
which the workers will control their own
working conditions. All schemes for the
better education of the workers should
receive support, for. without education,
they will not be able to control those
conditions successfully.

U.B.C. won a hard-fought game from
the Rowing Club on Saturday night,
finishing two points ahead of their opponents.    The score was 35-33.
The Rowing Club went into the lead
in the first few minutes and kept this
advantage until half time, when they
were leading 17-15. Soon after the intermission 'Varsity evened the score and
took the lead. Two minutes before the
final whistle the Rower s again forged
ahead, but three fast 'Varsity baskets
cinched the contest.
The work of "Buck" Buchanan, the
U.B.C. centre, featured the game. Buck
was in every play, and worked hard
throughout. Sid. Anderson, with six
baskets, led in scoring. George Dixon
shot five fouls for 'Varsity and scored
three baskets. Both George Gross and
Gordie Callaghan secured four points.
The 'Varsity team was as follows:
Guards, G. Gross (4) and G. Callaghan
(4); centre, A. Buchanan (8); forwards,
S. Anderson (12) and G. Dixon (11).
The Science Undergrad. held a meeting on Wednesday, at noon, mainly to
discuss the next official function of this
society. It was decided that another
smoker would be given. Accordingly, a
committee, composed of C. O. Swanson,
J. Drury and D. A. Wallace, was nominated to make the arrangements.
The matter of a letterhead to be used
for all the correspondence of the Science
Undergraduate Society was then brought
up. The design suggested by Mr. Kingham was finally adopted, in spite of the
attempts of certain Freshmen to have
the notepaper bestrewn with such mottoes as, "Whiskey Without Soda."

We gather from the daily papers' reports of the last meeting of the Senate
and of recent activities in Victoria that
a movement is on foot to add to the
courses of the Victoria High School a
fifth year, whose work shall he recognized as equivalent to that of second
year Arts at U.B.C. Such a step, if taken,
would be fatal to the interests of the
province and of this institution.
Whether the extra courses given at
Victoria be given as fourth and fifth
year courses of the High School, or
whether the staff and students of these
years be separated from the High School
and become an entirely different institution, the results would be equally disastrous. If the former course were
adopted, High School athletics would be
ruined. Those High Schools able to
draw their athletes from students one or
two years older and having one or two
years extra experience would have an
unfair advantage over High Schools
without this opportunity. Moreover,
other High Schools, in various parts of
the province, would in all probability apply for the same privileges as the Victoria High School. The result would be
that we would have High Schools all
over the province giving so-called University courses, and the students who
should unite to form one strong University, able to compete with Eastern institutions, would be scattered from Hazelton to Fernie.
Were the latter course to be adopted,
we would have another University established at Victoria. Considering that the
province of British Columbia cannot yet
adequately support one University, it
seems folly indeed to establish another.
Finally, students entering U.B.C. in
their third year would not have the college spirit or the interest in college
activities that attendance at U.B.C. for
the two years previous would have given
them. In addition, the newcomers would
render impossible that sense of class
unity so essential to the third and fourth
v     v     v
Elections- are, unfortunately, annual
disturbances, and one year seems no
sooner over than the next year comes
along, with vacant offices clamoring to
be filled. It is already time to consider
the question of the best candidates for
the various offices for next year, since
nominations for president of the Alma
Mater must be handed in by next Monday.
In connection with this, the annual
question of the personnel of the Students' Council comes up, and we would
like to point out the advantages of the
return of some who have had experience
on the Council to office in one capacity
or another, as well as the appointment
of a certain number of new members of
the Council from Arts '22 as well as
Arts '21. There are several positions
which are open to students of both
years, and it -will be wise for the students to remember this when voting, and
put on the Council for next year some
who will be able to continue their services on it the succeeding term, thus
avoiding the difficulties experienced by
the present Council, none of whom had
ever served before.
While dealing with the subject, it
might not be out of place to remind the
students of the changes- in the Alma Mater constitution, whereby the secretary
and treasurer of the Council will be
elected directly from the student body,
and the vice-president of the Literary
and Scientific Department will not have
a seat on the Council.
All correspondence must be written
legibly, on one side of the paper only, and

Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—As a graduate of Arts '19, I
request permission to express myself in your
paper. In your issue of February 5th there
was a report of the plans of Arts '20 for
the two weeks preceding graduation, and
amongst these was an expression of their
intention to plant a "memorial row" of elms
at the site at Point Grey as a "living monument" to themselves. Arts '19 planted "one"
tree, with the idea that future graduating
classes would follow suit, since Arts '19 was
the first class which had been the full four
years at U.B.C, and therefore had a right to
establish precedent in this matter. Why,
then, should Arts '20 be considered so important that such a large and prominent
portion of the University grounds should be
given over to their memory? Future years
will thus be deprived of the privilege of doing their part towards beautifying the University grounds. We wonder if Arts '20 has
done so much for U.B.C. that it requires a
"monument'    of such striking importance?
Thanking you,
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—'Varsity lost the Tisdall Cup,
largely because the Players' Club was determined to have a rehearsal. How long are
we going to place a mere rehearsal before a
Rugby championship? Is it good policy that
the Rugby team should lose the services of
a star in order that a minor character in the
spring play might become more or less proficient?
PUZZLED. February 26, 1920
Editor "Ubyssey."
Dear Sir:—Kindly permit me to voice an
opinion in connection with Saturday's Rugby
Why was 'Varsity defeated at the hands of
the Firemen? The reasons were twofold:
First, two of our vital players were unable
to play through illness; second, a third preferred a rehearsal which the Players' Club
was staging.
I admit that March 4th is drawing near
and that little time remains in which to
complete the preparations for those worthy
presentations; but at the same time I cannot
see why the Players' Club could not have
co-operated with the Rugby Club, and held
their rehearsal, say, on Saturday evening.
If they had done this, we feel sure that
Varsity would have acquitted itself as admirably as  it has in  the  past.
In a well-organized University ( such a
thing would certainly not have been allowed.
However, it is too late now—the Tisdall Cup
is lost. But shall such a thing occur again?
It is up to us, as students, to see that it does

The following paragraph of helpful
criticism is from the "Acadia Athenaeum," of Acadia University, Nova Scotia. We are pleased to thank them for
their interest in "The Ubyssey" and U.
B. C. affairs in general. At the same
time we wish to suggest that "The
Ubyssey" is not primarily a literary production; hence the absence of poetry
and essays:
"There seems to be a lot of 'pep' in
U.B.C. The paper teems with the robust
activity of Western life. Strong on athletics and social functions. Correspondence column a decided asset. May we
suggest the study of Canadian as well
as English literature in your Literary
Club? Also making 'L'byssey' rest less
on the editors and more on the students

burstingly,' but 'yours Bust.' Have you

Members of the student body and the
Faculty who knew Mr. Edward W.
Berry, a graduate of our own University,
will be sorry to learn of his death at St.
John's College, Oxford, while in his undergraduate  studies  there.
Mr. Berry was a Rhodes scholar, of
a singularly bright and cheerful disposition, and had been with the R.A.F.
as a second lieutenant. He was much
beloved by all who knew him. The following was taken from the "Daily
Telegraph," London, England, date of
Monday,  January 26th:
"Mr. F. E. Marshall, one of the
University coroners, held an inquiry at
Oxford on Saturday into the circumstances attending the death of Mr. Edward W. Berry, of Langley Prairie,
British Columbia, a Rhodes scholar and
an undergraduate of St. John's College."
Marcus D. Tait, of the University
College, Toronto, son of a Presbyterian
minister, has been selected by the Ontario committee as the Rhodes scholar
for the year 1920.
Lennox A. Mills has been announced
as the successful candidate for the latest
Rhodes scholarship to be granted in the
University of B. C. Mr. Mills, who is a
native son of Vancouver, graduated here
in 1916. Later he took his M.A. degree
at Toronto and his Ph.D. at the University of California. Since last fall he has
been studying for his Ph.D. at Harvard,
where he is specializing in history.
University of Alberta vs. U.B.C.
The first contest between this University and our sister institution of the province east of us will take the form of a
debate on March 20th. The subject is,
"Resolved that the presidential form of
government is better adapted to serve
the true interests of democracy than the
parliamentary system as exemplified in
Canada." The visiting team will take the
affirmative, while Mr. G. E. McKinnon
and Miss Louise Stirk, of Arts '20, will
take the negative.
There have been several international
debates between this University and
those of Washington, Idaho and Oregon,
but this is the first instance in our history of a rivalry on the platform with
the University of Alberta. The Sigma
Delta Kappa, to whom the challenge was
issued, have taken charge of the sale of
tickets for this debate.

The Men's Literary Society held another Student Parliament last Wednesday night. A feature of this meeting
was the reading of the speech from the
throne by the Governor-General, Mr.
Sage. He outlined the general policy of
the Government for the coming session,
expressing the hope that the session
might be productive of great good to the
whole country.
Taking his place as Speaker, Mr. Sage
then called on Mr. R. F. Adams, the
Prime Minister, to bring in any business
he had for consideration. The Premier
then introduced a bill providing for compulsory military or naval training for all
men between the ages of eighteen and
twenty-four who are physically fit; such
training to extend over a period of three
months each year for three years, and
six weeks each year for the three years
In support of the bill, the Prime Minister argued that all our young men
should have some adequate physical
training, and this they would certainly
get in military service; that our men
should be taught the full duties of citizenship, and that Canada should be
ready to come to the help of the Empire
in time of war. He claimed such a system of service would help to assimilate
the alien, as he would mix with other
Canadians in the training camps and
learn our customs and ideals.
The Labor Opposition, led by C. D.
Smith and T. Preston Peardon, argued
that a system of compulsory military
service was a step toward militarism,
which the late war was supposed to end.
They denied that the proposal would
care for the physical training of the
young men, as only those .who are physically fit would get the training. Again,
the alien would be embittered. Coming
from a country of military oppression to
a land of supposed freedom, he would
only find himself as badly, off as before.
Then the great economic waste involved
in keeping so many men from productive
work, at the period of their greatest
efficiency, makes the cost too great.
When the House came to a division,
the Government was defeated. At the
next meeting, March 3rd, the new Labor
Government will bring in some constructive measure.

promising runs were thus thwarted.
After two-thirds of the period had
passed, the University secured their one
try, following a loose scrum near the
fire-fighters' line. It was now that old
man Jinx took a hand in the game. The
touch was made close to the bars, but
Gwyther's kick to convert hit the right-
hand upright and bounced out. It was
on that kick that 'Varsity's hopes were
pinned. The college crew kept trying
to repeat their success, but could not
penetrate again.
Gross and Bickle, on the forward line,
played bang-up games for 'Varsity;
while Ternan and Gwyther, on the back
division, worked at top speed.
Lineup: Gross, Bickle, Carlisle, Plummer, Swanson, James, Hodson, Ross,

Deer Mertel:
Well, Mertel, by the time you reed
this everything will be over. No, I am
not going to komit suicide or quit skool,
but on Thurs. nite they is going to be a
theater partey and Mr. Pilling, what
owns the Orpheum, is letting the fellos
in this University put on 3 acts of there
own and everybody is going to it. I
think it will be grate and will tell you
about it in my next letter. The big act
is where 10 fellos put on a play and I
think it is a religus one becus they had
a rehersel in the Baptist Church the
other day but the music didnt sound very
religus. I wish I was in this play, Mertel, but if these fellos think they can put
one on without me and have it a suckses
they are welcum to try. I will not shuv
myself forward. You no what I am,
On Friday nite the Freshmen had
there class partey witch looked more like
a general University partey becus they
was more outsiders there than Arts '23.
It was the best partey I have been to
this yr. and I have been to them all.
Mertel, becus I am a society favorite, as
they say. Everything went on fine until
Bob Hunter, witch is a kind of king in
the class, spilt a plate of cake in the
middle of the floor. He lost his dignity
for once, Mertel, and was mad. I laffed.
They was one girl witch I was dancing
with witch had a black spot on her cheek
and I thot her fountain pen had backfired and I said Do you know your face
is dirty? She laffed and said that is my
beauty spot. She was a quick thinker,
Mertel, and now I will no what to say
when somebody throwes ink at me and
I forget to wash mv face.
The Second year had a skateing partey
on Wed. nite and I went to that. I skate
just as well as I dance. Mertel, and I
had a hard time becus all the girls wanted to skate with me and I had a tuf time
chosing my partners. It is funny how
jelus sum of these girls get. They was
one witch I had not skated with witch
asked one witch I had the 6th. band with
"Say who was that poor fish witch you
dragged around during the 6th.?" I
skated away, Mertel, becus I do not like
to heer conversashun witch is not intended for my ears. I am no hart breaker when it comes to looks, Mertel, but
lots of girls have said I was handsome
in a country way and as far as that goes
this girl was no raving beauty and if she
was adicted to those beauty spots she
wood likely look like a coon befor you
noticed any improvement in her looks.
I wish you cood be here on Thurs.
nite to see the show. But I will go and
imagine you are there two and I will
laff for you and me and will enjoy the
show twice as much and will be prak-
tising economy also. You no what I am,
Mertel, where money is concerned.
At the annual prize-day of a certain
school, the head boy rose to give his
"Friends, Romans, countrymen," he
vociferated, "lend me your ears!"
"There," commented the mother of a
departed pupil, somewhat sneeringly:
"that's Mrs. Tones' boy. He wouldn't
be his mother's son if he didn't want to
borrow something!"

Often you hear it said:  "The Barron is different!"
MAYBE it's the quality of the cuisine.    Perhaps it's the superiority of the music.
Again,  it  may  be  the  dance  floor—or  the  atmosphere  that  pervades—or  the
character of the people.
PERHAPS  it  is  all   three—for  the   BARRON  is  different,   and  that  is  why  this
expression has become so respected.

On Tuesday evening the executive of
the Musical Society comoleted arrangements for the final annual concert, to be
given in the ballroom of the Hotel Vancouver on Friday, March 10th. A most
excellent programme of orchestral selections and choruses by both the men's
and women's glee clubs will be rendered. The glees bv the men's club will
be esoecially attractive features, as there
are so many taking part in comparison
to former years.
Mrs. Green, of Victoria, will assist the
society this year. Her recognized ex-
celence as a pianist has spread from the
coast cities of British Columbia to the
whole of Canada and the United Stat°s.
The society has been congratulated bv
msnv upon having secured such a talented artiste.
Tickets will be given to renresenta-
t'ves of all faculties in the University,
from whom students mav procure the
ii""iber which they desire. As there
w'll be only one performance, the time
for the sale of tickets amongst the students will be limited, so that the cit:zens
of Vancouver and Victoria mav have an
ennortunity of being present. The tickets
are all of one price, namely, one dollar.

Modern Industrialism in the Church
Speaking on this subject on Thursday,
at noon, Dr. Boggs, in his very interesting manner, gave an outline of the
changes that have taken place in the
church in the past few years. He stated
that the church of to-day is different
from that of our grandfathers; also that
the people of to-day look at church life
In a new way. There are those who believe that the church has outlived its
usefulness. Then there are those who
believe that the church is not ex-erting
the same influence as formerly; but sav
that this is to be expected, as the church
should be in the world, but not of the
world. Also there are those who say
that the church has lost influence, but
that the weakness is due, to the church
itself. Dr. Boggs then showed that the
hone of the church was in the last group,
and that the church of to-day must restate her aims and her goal in terms of
the twentieth century, and that in the
nresent process of reconstruction she
has a two-fold task of discernment and
of inspiration. For this she needs not
nnly good men, but also good relations
between men. It is not sufficient to
ooint to the auestions of right and wrong
in the abstract, nor only to rare for the
human wrecks of to-day. But charity
must be supolemented by intelligence,
and individual oiety must not be divorced
from social righteousness.
On Sunday afternoon a small group of
men gathered in the men's common
room to hear the initial address of Dr.
Shortt on the earlv developments and
expansion of the Christian missions in
Europe. Throughout the rest of the
term Dr. Shortt, in his most capable and
interesting way, will continue these
meetings at the same hour on Sunday
afternoons. For Sunday af this week the
discussion will be centred on the remarkable spread of Christianity in the
British Isles. Those who were present
at the first meeting declared it to be the
most enlivening and educative history of
the church that has ever been given in
connection with the University.
On Tuesday, February 3rd, Mr. J.
Allardyce delivered a lecture on "Glass"
to the Chemistry Society.
From the time of the Phoenicians he
traced the growth of this great industry,
showing how the use of glass spread
through Egyptian, Roman. French and
Italian eras, until it was introduced in
England in the 11th century.
Although glass has no definite melting
point, because it is a poor heat-conductor, it has been proved to be a definite
compound. The effect of the addition
of various elements to this compound
was shown, and the properties of the
resulting glasses explained.
The processes of annealing, hardening,
flashing, staining, etc., were outlined,
and a demonstration of the shock-resistance of an annealed beaker was given.
A brief review of the innumerable
uses of glass showed the great value of
this indispensable material.
The next meeting on Thursday, Feb.
19th, will be taken by Mr. H. Andrews,
who will speak on "Pulp and Paper."
The Chemistry Society met on Monday, February 23rd, to hear a paper on
"The Sulphite Process in Paper-making"
by Mr. H. I. Andrews, of Science '20.
He told how paper was first made entirely from rags, and how the steadily
increasing demand for paper led to the
invention of a process for making paper
from wood.
Paper, by definition, is a coherent mat
of cellulose rolled into a sheet. Wood
consists of these celulose fibres and lig-
nin. The sulphite process dissolves out
the lignin, leaving the fibres. Fine writing paper is made from pure bleached
sulphite pulp. Newsprint is about thirty
per cent, sulphite and seventy per cent,
ground wood pulp.
The speaker dealt at length on the
piocess of making the digesting liquor,
which is a solution of sulphurous acid
and calcium bi-sulphite. The sulphur is
burned; the fumes pass up a tower containing limestone, over which water is
sprayed. The gas dissolves in the water;
part of the acid so formed acts on the
limestone to form calcium bi-sulphite.
The liquor is stored in oak tanks.
The chips are "cooked" in huge steel
digesters. These are cylinders with both
ends tapered and are constructed of inch
steel plate. They are lined with acid-
proof bricks cemented together with a
mixture of litharge and glycerine. The
chips are introduced, then the acid, finally steam to bring the pressure up to
eighty pounds in four hours and keep it
there eight hours. The temperature also
is regulated according to formula. By
various tests the operator knows when
the chips have been sufficiently "cooked"
—the "cook" is then blown and is ready
to be screened, and sent to the paper
Hear Jack Storey to-day, in Room Z.
at noon. All men are especially invited
to hear an address on the three C's campaign. If you must eat to live, bring in
your lunch.
Remember the men's meeting on Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the men's
common room. Principal Short will
continue his series of meetings on the
growth and expansion of missions.
Sunday, February 29th, has been set
aside throughout Canada as a special
prayer dav for students. Arrangements
for the observance of this Dominion-
wide movement have been made with
the Ministerial Association here, and on
Sunday morning special devotional services will be introduced on behalf of the
students of this city. In the evening an
undergraduate service will be held in
Christ Church, at which all University
students are requested to be present.
Dr. W. W. Craig, minister of Christ
Church, has consented to lead in the exercises of that evening.
