here I am the leading-man In the
Musical Society's Grand Opera, if only
I had had more safety pins .... They

Almost aa soon aa Frank waa disposed of, hysterical shrieks announced another Interloper—Bill. Bill put
up quite a fight. "I quite forgot they

Because of the unprecedented!/ large number of (allures
amongst First aad Seoond Year students, this Ohrlstmas Senate
has appointed a committee ot faoulty members to Investigate into
the causes. Tho alarming feature of the situation is that the percentage of failures has been rising steadily during the past years.
, The cause of this Increasing rate of failures lies either in the
high school system or In the University, since we cannot but
believe that the average of intelligence of the First and Second
fear studentg remains fairly constant from year to year. As for
the high sohool system, the Inadequacy of the preparation lt
Offers is now realised, and ts being rectified by Its extension over
another year. The effect ot this will not be felt in the Unlveralty,
however, for another four years, and anyway lt does not explain
the steady Increase In the number of B.A.C/s each year.
That there is too great a gap between high school and college, Is unquestionably true. The newly arrived Freshman finds
an entirely new system followed at the University. Instead of
the accustomed "spoon-feeding," a system by which the teacher
alternately prods and leads, he is confronted with an entirely
now one; ln University the aspects of a subject dealt with in the
laoture-room are supposed to be more or less peripheral to what
the student studies on his own. That a great number fall to perceive this difference can be seen from the remark of one Fresh-
man shortly hefore the exams, a wish that one of his professors
would "finish shooting his face off and get down to business and
give notes they could pass exams on."
Then there is at Varsity the broader range of athletic and
sooial activities, so that the Freshman Is altogether surrounded
by a feeling of newness. It he is a bit slow to adapt himself to
these new conditions, or rakes part In the various activities, the
result ls often failure. Bach year attempts are made to warn and
advise the Freshman class, and this year more elaborate efforts
were mado to bridge the gap than ever before, but witness the
We conclude that many Freshmen* and even Sophomores,
fat. to bridge the gap between high school and college satisfactorily. To assist them In "getting organised" either the last two
years of high sohool should be adapted to college preparation, or
the first and seoond years of Varsity should be remodelled along
high school lines, or else a definite limit should be placed on .the
number of activities in which Freshmen may engage. And this
last seems to us the cure that should be flrst tried.

A course in Spanish was formerly given in this University
but some years ago it was discontinued. The need tor its renaissance has been acutely felt during the past few years and lately
a movement has been set on foot for its restoration. Dean Bollert,
Prof. J. F. Day and Others all approve the scheme. Professor Day,
whose department is especially concerned is most favorably disposed toward such a development and hopes that results may
be expected at an early date.
If forty students signify their desire for a chair of Spanish
it ls possible that we will have it next fall. Since every other
university of any size on the continent has such a course, we
feel that it is time U.B.C. fell into line.
In view of the commercial relations which will inevitably
develop between Canada and South America, a knowledge of
Spanish will be most valuable to many people and for this reason
the proposed course will appeal to students who plan to enter
foreign trade, transportation, or banking. In fact an acquaintance with Spanish is of practical use to almost any university
graduate, quite apart from the fact that some students may consider such a knowledge of cultural value.
Ta a Lover of Omar Khayyam
'Tis vain to hope to trace once more the trail
Of foam-flecked green stretched far behind the sterr
Of this lone ship, swept on before the gale
That roars resistlessly; and none discerns
The dim far shore of Being whence we came
Or any inland haven 'mid the waste
Of dark gray waves, where driven snow and rain
Drop dotvn into their self-oblivious place.
But surely o'er the sky's inverted bowl
And in the wind that blows us o'er the sea
Their reigns the power and purpose of the Whole,
The Love for each that evermore shall be;
And old Khayyam knew but this cloud-wrapped dawn
Of still-increasing life where love lives on.
—R.R.B. in the "Varaity.
Bdltor, "Ubyssey,"
Dear Sir:
' The editorial appearing in the
"Ubyssey" of January 21, under the
caption "Debunking Debates" is both
timely and to the point. But It sets
forth a number ot ideas which it ts not
fair, ln the Interests of debating in
this University, to let pass unchallenged,
Truly enough, ths purpose of a debate may be entertainment. But not
"all modern students" as yon suggest,
are "filled to nausea with orations on
•world peace' and 'disarmament'."
These two Ideas are onee of paramount importance in world thought today. If our University, aa we sincerely hope, is training some of ite stu*
dents along broad*mlndad channels,
these subjeots cannot fall to interest,
and interest vitally and noticeably, an
increasing body of students.
Further, Debating Union — anxious
to be welf advised when to Its advan*
tage—ls doing a great deal to improve
ns presentations, lt should be remembered that In the majority ot debates
with outside universities, Debating
Union Is hot at liberty to ohoose Its
own subject, It must agree to a set
resolution, or suggest only very minor
modifications, It is to its credit, there*
tore, that it does accept a subject
which it believes to be of genuine pub*
Uo interest, and which it debates with
creditable showing.
Quite apart from this' point, however, if the Studentg ot wis University wish to be "guaranteed real entertainment' the opportunity is at
hand. The debate against University
ot Montreal on February 7 on tbe subject "Resolved that this house deplores the emergence of women from
the home" should prove ot visible interest both to men and to women.
Yours truly,

held at the home of Mr. A. Manson,
Western Parkway, The speaker, Ma*
Jor Bcudamore, a Jovial and muoh
travelled man, was sympathetic to*
ward Mussolini and his government.
He described the transition from an
Italy, poor, broken and disunited in
1919 into the prosperous and power*

The editorial tn a recent Issue of
the "Ubyssey," entitled "Enervating
Education," like most editorials wae
anonymous, We understand that tbe
name of the author ot any editorial
will be told to anyone asking the
Editor-in-Chief. It is our universal
Journalistic custom, and so the executive ot Education '10 oan hardly take
exceptloln to th* procedure. It did
net voice tbe personal opinion ot
one person, aa would have been the
case if lt had been published In tbe
correspondence column; but rather
the presumed stand ot the paper's ed*
itorlal stair.
It seemt strange that the executive
of tbe Education class ahould object
to "suoh a method of gaining improve*
ment" Do they, we ask in all humility, set at naught the power of tbe
8rest which guides public opinion?
Ivory paper, through ita editorials,
advocates certain reforms, suggests
certain polioita; is this right, nay
dttty, lo be denied the "Ubysley."
Wnlie wa do net profess to know
the facts ot the case, it would be Interesting to know the Education students' actual standi and not exeen*
fives' opinion of the olass' opinion.
We beg to suggest an official statement, in the form of a resolution from
a mooting ot the class be available
tn readers of this paper.

stderabie crowd seems to have gathered. A tew more gather around the
radiator. "Are they here yet?" asks
an innocent-looking freshette. "What's
the hold-up?" demands a scowling
freshman. A aonior editor passes
through the hall and descends to the
Oaf. A crowd of freshettes pass by.
One of the number remarks, "Oh,
there is a 'Ubyssey' to-day, isn't
there?" The editor-in-chief, In company with the news-editor, strolls
along. They pause to peer In through
the curtains at a rehearsal for the
Musical Society's Operetta. Somebody
starts to laugh. The crowd is increasing, but the faithful few are still clustered about the radiator. The Literary
Editor, clad ln flowing gown, passes
by and mounts the stairs to the Council offloe, An assistant editor emerges,
smiling broadly. Still the press la-
creases. Three Juniors discuss "Oaf.
Fever, with apologies to Masefleld,"
"R.A.P." muses one. "Wonder what the
'A' stands for?" "Aloyslus" bellows
one. "No, Algernon," corrects another.
The Circulation manager stands nervously ln the doorway. Tbe scene it
one of tense expectancy, with the minutes fast ticking onward.
Just then a swarthy figure mounts
the stairs bearing two large bundles.
These are hastened Into the business
office, and a moment later the newsboy reappears with a bundle of paper
In his arms, printed black on both
sides. By dint of much pushing he deposits same on top of the radiator.
There ls a struggle, a scrubbing of
feet, a tearing of paper, and all of a
sudden the mob Is appeased—it has

SYRACUSE, N.Y., January H-The
care-free life existing in college clubs
haa a very Ill-effect upon new graduates, according to tho opinion of Ran*
dulph Klngaley, prominent member
and former officer of a Now York college slab. Among the various cities
to which they go to make a living the
most popular is New York. This city
every year receives several hundred
ot them and the greater majority take
up their, abode within the walls of
their college clubs.
"As long as cash or oredit lasts,
they live g life that many European
Srlncet would envy," continues Mr.
ilngsley. "Chatting on expensively
decorated lounges, armchairs and divans, sleeping in spotless bedrooms,
and swimming in limpid, translucent
Stools, these men enjoy luxuries that
aw others in much   higher realms
ever experience."
"College olubs have proved an Important Influence for happiness, dignity and duty ln llvos of thousands of
cultured American men," Mr. Kings-
ley states. But according to him, the
present credit system ot the clubs it
a mistake, and does the graduate
more harm (nan good, by habituating
him to live on credit.
Every college club, in Mr. Kings-
ley's opinion, should operate on a
strictly cash basis. "The club should
teach these young men that alt through
life they must pay their own way."
The oollege man at the age of 26
knows as muoh about earning his way
as the non-college map of 18." he
states. "The oollege man has always
lived on someone else' first, on his
parents, then on his oollege oredit,
and then nn nls college club."

Aberdeen, Scotland, Jan. 38.—A decision which Is likely to ralae the mott
lively controversy between male and
female students, not only in Scotland
but throughout the world, was reached
by the Students' Representative Conn-
ell of Aberdeen Unlveralty at a recent
meeting, when a motion to limit the
number of women tn Scottish Universities wat passed by a wide majority.
During the discussion attention waa
drawn to the importance attached to
a similar resolution at Oxford gnd
Camlrrtdge, where it was maintained
that women had dot Justified thetr
lattehdence at College.

damned here to-day by oollege girls,
who dseiartd themselves m favour of
that last straw in the maintenance of
a single standard—the "Dutch treat.**
Teams officially repreee»tJt.| the so*
nlor and jitil.r classes Of the New
Jersey Golldga fpf Women debated
the question, "Retolved, thit all cot
lege dates bo Dutch treats." The
Judges and the student audience word
overwhelmingly for the affirmative, as
upheld by the seniors.
"Dutch treat" was defined by the
affirmative simply as a "Sfty-flfty
proposition" and "data" as ''one of
those not so rare occasions of a friv*
olous nature when the man thinks
twloe before selecting his necktie and
the girl adds an extra dab of pewdef
to her note."
The arguments which won the day
for tho oollege boy's pooketboofc aro:
Most college boys aro supported by
their fathers, as are college girls.
While the fathers of boys may be
luckier than the fathers of girls, they
are not necessarily wealthier. Olrlt
are therefore economically as able to
nay for dates as msn.
The "Dutch treat" habit eliminates
gold-digging among college gins who
can earn money aa wen as men if
they set their mind to It, but who
usually pick tbe easier course.
The "Dutch treat" is wise from a
mora) standpoint! it causes mutual
respect and enables a girl to be herself with a man Instead of using a
"line" to show her gratitude, It
makes it possible tor a girl to ask a
man for a dale without embarrass*
The negative team attempted to present the masculine viewpoint and
pleaded tor the present convention
on the grounds of precedent, the fact
that men are able to earn money
mora easily than girls, and, finally
that "chivalry is not yet dead and the
Dutch treat is an insult to manly
