Fall Congregation
Meets Wed. Oct. 28;
Scholarships Won
Interesting Thesis "The New Japan'' Presented For
M.A. Degree by Howard Nicholion.
Forty-seven students will receive degrees at the Fall Congregation in the Auditorium, on Wednesday, October 28. Four
will graduate as Masters of Arts, and thirty-one as Bachelors
of Arts. Many of these latter degrees have been won by summer sessions alone, in which the work of the whole four years
has been completed. Two students will graduate as Bachelors
of Arts in the Double Course—Arts and Science and Applied
Science, and one as a Bachelor of Commerce, In the Faculty
of Applied Science, one student will graduate In Electrical Engineering, one In Forest Engineering, and three in Mechanical
Engineering. Five students will receive Social Service Diplomas in the Faculty of Arts and Science.
Three scholarships will also be pre
sented—the Canadian Club Bursary
The American Women's Club Bursary,
and the David Thorn Bursary. The
University Scholarship in nursing and
health will not be awarded, there
being no applicant of scholarship,

Oxford Bans Cars
For Student Use
"Owing to traffic congestion at
Oxford, students' automobiles are
banned, except between the hours of
1 and 9 p.m.
There has been some comment at
different Universities on the taking
of this step, and while various surmises have been made as to the reason,  this apparently  is it,
A recent visitor to England remarked on his return on the large
number of bicycles used by English
students  in  preference  to  cars.
Danish Songs
By Gymnasts
Enliven Meet
Danish Gymnasts, disciples of Professor Niels Bukh, enthralled students with their singing at a pep
meeting Monday noon.
The performance was all the more
remarkable in that thay sang entirely unaccompanied, without even
being given a note. A Danish folk
song and one about a sailor were
rendered. Despite the, tact that
students could not understand the
words of either song the applause
was loud and prolonged.
There were some thirty exponents
of the syitam for "fundamental
gymnastics" on the stage and they
appeared just like ordinary young,
men and women much to the sur-
prlee* of the audience, judging by remarks overheard.; ';v;- d*. -    ' —"■
Pwident Klinck, in introducing
Professor Bukh, stated that the
gymnastic instructor had asked to
be "Pared the embarassment ot
speaking in a tongue not his own,
although he also said that he and
the Professor had had a quite understanding conversation earlier In
the day.
Dr. Klinck hoped that all students
were y,en up in the Danish language so that they would be able
to appreciate the performance in the
Gym. He also expressed his regret
that owing to a meeting of the
Board 0f Governors he would be
unable to attend the actual exhibition, although he had been allowed
a preview while the young men were
limbering up in the Gym on Monday morning- He regretted however, that he had been unable to
watch the women owing to his many

the locale with several selections on
his piano-accordlon. Much applause
followed each number and he was
recalled to the stage several times.
The Pep Club gave their first performance when they led the audience in "Hall U. B. C." They also
sang Blue Blua much to the amusement of those present. A new departure ln the rendition of the Skyrocket was spoilt by the outburst of
the famous Science yell, »We are,
A skit presented by the Women's

"Life in the Company" was the
subject of a paper read by Gladys
Webster at the meeting of the Historical Society at the home of Mrs. M.Y.

Before dealing directly with actual
life in the company Mrs. Webster
gave a brief survey of the early history of the Oregon Territory divided
as it was into the Columbia Valley,
New Caledonia and Thomson River
The object for the "establishment
of these f0rts was for purposes of
trade, no mention being made of settlement. However, in the Interests
of its servants the company encouraged cultivation of land near the
Company forts. The developments of
coal mines at Nanalmo and fisheries
on the Fraser came later with the

was fortunate in having many pictures of ear]y forts and the remains

meeting last Friday which officially
created the new Business Manager
System and made the position of
Graduate Manager a full-time job,
with salary terms at 1125.00 a month.
The students also granted permission to Council to arrange social
functions for any night In the week
until changes in the constitution can
be affected which will make Saturday and week-night functions quite
in order. '
The social committee whose appointment on October 5 was recommended by the Faculty Committee
on Student Affairs also suggested
the immediate formation of a new
committee consisting of representatives from the Senate, the Faculty,
and the A.M.S. to investigate the
whole question of student government. They would report before
January 25,  1932.
Not one word of disagreement was
heard during the whole meeting .and
every motion passed unanimously.
A larger number ot students than
usual attended and the motion of
adjournment was passed before one
Earl Vance, president of the A.M.
S„ asked the students to remember
that they had pledged their last
year's caution money to the Stadium
Fund and, although legal technical-
Hies arose which interfered with the
delivery of the funds to the Stadium account, they still had moral
obligations to fulfill. They could
algn over their caution fees, or If
they had- withdrawn them, they
could send the funds direct to Students' Council.
Vanoa also related the faett which
led up to the appointment of the
special committee to report on "paid
assistance on the campus." Early
in the summer, he explained, he discussed the proposition ot employing
a full-time Business Manager with
some past-presidents of the A.M.S.
and one member of the Faculty.
They came to the conclusion that,
because the business of the Society
bad grown tremendously and the
students could not do justice to their
studies as well as to their duties as
executives, and because auditors had
reported poor book-keeping, a manager should be apointed for the
coming year.
He introduced the question at a
Council meeting and it was decided
that such an appointment would be
made. An advertisement was inserted in a daily paper and from the
applications they received, they
chose Arnold Henderson, last year's
Undergraduate Business Manager, as
the most suitable applicant for the

Seniors ------
Dare Fate — -
For Last Time - -
Hooting, cat-calls and raucous laughter will characterize
the behavior of the Senior class
on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
Seniors may be staid on some
occasions, but the class draw is
a signal for gay abandon,
(everything is abandoned except the girls),
As usual, the girls are sigh-
Ing for Blddlngton Woof, and
the males are pining for a
beautiful College Gjrl. "There
is always a chance," claims Don
Morgan, class president, "for
the Seniors are able to boast of
many ravishing damosels and
hairy-chested he-men; all eager
for each other's society, meaning your's, you bashful Senior."
Mr. Morgan expects the whole
class to be present at the draw,
in view of the fact that It will
be their last chance to indulge
In the primitive, but necessary
and amusing sports. Arts 100 is
the place, and twelve noon on
Tuesday, October 27, the time.
"Canada, Finland and the Scandinavian countries are two of the most
important areas of precambrian rocks
in the world," stated Dean W. R.
Brock in discussing his journey to
Europe last summer, and the many
conventions he attended during that
At the end of June, Dean Brock
went to England as representative of
the University of British Columbia to
attend the Converse of Universities
of the Empire held in London and
Edinborough under the presidency of
the Prince of Wales.
From England he journeyed to Finland to attend the Internationa) Congress for the Study of Precambrian
Geology, of which he is Vice-President. After the convention, the director of the Geology Survey of Finland
escorted Dean Brock over Finland,
and together they were able to make
some interesting expeditions in Finland, Norway and Scandinavia to
study the geology of those countries.
Returning to England, Dean Brock
stopped at Paris for the International
Geographical Congress as representative of the Canadian Geographical Society and in London was present as
guest of the British Association and
Delegate of the Royal Society of Canada at the Centenary Meeting of tiie
British Association for Advancement
of Science in London.
Dean Brock was able to represent
the British Association at the Civic
Celebration held in the Cathedral of
Liverpool prior to the meeting in London and returned to Canada immediately after the session in London, arriving in Vancouver on Friday, October 16th.

F. G. C. Wood Made
Honorary Official
Prof; F. O. C. Wood of the English
Department has accepted the position
of Honorary Grand Scribe of the Society of Thoth, announces St. John
Madeley, Grand Scribe of the club.
Professor Wood was elected to the office at a recent meeting of the society, following his resignation from
the Players Club.
As Honorary President, of the Play-
ers Club, Professor Wood has long
been associated with campus dramatics, and while his resignation'from
the college theatrical club will be
considered a distinct loss to that organization, it is anticlated that his
experience will be of considerable
value ln his new field of endeavor,
the ballet.
The productions of the Society of
Thoth have been features of the annual Homecoming Theatre Night for
tho past six years, invariably taking
the form of a burlesque ballet. The

that are unique to this university,
having no counterpart on the campuses of the continent.
Canadian U's
Will Petition
Prime Minister
Disarmament Conference Subject
Of Plea ,
Students of U. B. C. today launch
their own part of a Canadian University movement to petition the
Prime Minister of Canada, Hon. R.
B. Bennett, to ask that the Dominion of Canada be represented at the
February disarmament conference at
Geneva, "not by men humbled before the Canadian people and all the
peoples of the world by political
chains, but by two who have served
their country as prime ministers,
whose presence would both give
weight to Canadian representations
and reflect the serious thought of
our best citizens."
University dubs on this campus
associated with the movement are
the Historical Society, the International Relations Club, Students'
Christian Movement, the two Oriental groups, the Varsity Christian
Union,  and the Menorah Society.
The first step in the nation-wide
enterprise was taken by the University of Western Ontario. Students
of McGill also introduced the petition early In the fall. Other Institutions whose students are actively
participating in the movement include Dalhousie, Acadia, Mount All-
son. McGill, University of Western
Ontario, University of Manitoba,
University of B. C.
Miss Agnes MacPhail, M. P., who
is to be In the city within a fortnight, will probably speak at U.B.C.
on "Canada and World Disarmament." Arrangements are being
made for her to address the students on Tuesday, November 10.
The text of the petition, which
will be presented to Premier Bennett in two weeks time, will read
as follows:

There is little invasion In Japan's
history, said Dr. Angus. Civil wars
were frequent but appear more as
feudal struggles than as conflicts between ideas or principles. Like the
Western countries, Japan had her
clans, a Manor system, a feudal system, land ownership by the church,
trade guilds, Internal trade restrictions, and monopolies.
In the Japanese system, lands
were granted for jurisdiction, a man
being given the right to rule and
the right to tax. This system involved frequent redistribution of la^.k« j*
Religious institutions were a force * -
to be reckoned with, but could not
compare in political strength with
the church of the West. The trade
guilds strongly resembled those of
The development of capitalism requires the concentration of wealth
in the hands of a few men eager to
use it to gain more. Vast fortunes
were amassed ln Japan, but rarely
in the possession of men who dared
use them'freely. The West developed successfully the capitalistic
spirit, working to gain wealth. The
East worked for a living.
At first, Japan's contacts with the
outside world were intimate and
friendly. Then she began to pursue
a policy of seclusion, restricting
trade and restraining the Japanese
from travelling abroad. Her development under this policy was unnatural.
Industrialization did not commence
in Japan before the twentieth century. Japan took longer to devel-
ope a proletariat. Then industrialization came rapidly, accompanied
by a rapid increase of population.
The address, the first of a series
on Japan, was held at the home ot
Mrs. Gibb, and was an outgrowth
of the Pacific Area Conference of
the past summer. The second of the
series will be held in two weeks

"through gymnastics the body may
be so perfectly moulded, strengthened and coordinated that tlie, youth

for him anything he may be ambitious to do."
His system of gymnastics is "*»-

is said that it stimulates the pupils

In February, 1930, Vladimir Snesarev, a
Russian graduate student at U. B. C, was
chosen delegate for this institution to the Students Pan-Pacific Conference, then being held
in Portland, Oregon. On reaching Blaine Mr.
Snesnarev was refused admission to the United
States on account of his European origin. The
University was thus deprived of student representation at the conference. At the time
considerable comment was heard with regard
to discourtesy of American immigration officials and red tape of the system in force.
Last Friday when the Aggie judging teams
travelled south to compete at the Pacific International Exhibition at Portland the patty
included two Russian students; both of these
men were prevented from entering the United
States. Once again U. B. C. was robbed of
adequate representation at an intercollegiate
Information emanating from the office of
the American Consul in Vancouver indicates
that there is neither discourtesy nor red tape
connected with refusal to admit a Russian born
Parson to enter the States. This is the law
and it is invariably and impartially enforced.
Under these circumstances it seems that all
the blame for the recent incident must be laid
at the door of those in charge of the arrangements for sending the Judging teams south.
Considering the episode in 1930 it might have
been expected that full enquiry would have
bwn made before a student of non-Canadian
birth Was picked to represent the University in
the United States. There is a considerable registration of foreign born students at U. B. C,
many of whom are leaders in their particular
fields. It is therefore no more than pertinent
to suggest that organizations on the campus,
which may have occasion to send representatives to the Land of Liberty, take warning
from this double lesson.    •
The University has been honoured in having as its guests the Danish Gymnasts and
their instructor, Mr. Niels Bukh.
Not only is this team unique in the world,
but it has chosen to give its only performance,
in Vancouver, under the quspices of the University. The Gym Clubs were responsible for
providing this opportunity, and deserve credit for their able management.
This culture of the perfect physique is one
that is deserving of interest and continuance,
and Mr. Niels Bukh is to be complimented on
the successful application of his theory to
the practical test. Physical fitness is in itself
a desirable quality, simply in order that everyone may perform his part in daily life tirelessly
and well; but when strength is supplemented
by grace and simplicity of movement we have
the ideal human organism.
It would be to the credit of the University
as a whole, and to the benefit of every student
if more interest were shown on this campus
in the work of the Gymnasium Clubs. It is
an undisputed fact that everyone cannot hope
to participate in organized competitive sports,
but there is no reason why they should not
take an active part in supporting a club primarily intended to develop and strengthen the
body. We would like to see a cooperative
attempt made towards raising the status and
membership of the Gym Club until they have
obtained the prestige similiar clubs hold on
other campuses. *

and the perpetrator exhibits an amazing selfishness and lack of consideration. If any third
year students preserved the paper in question,
it would be a public service to replace the one
that has been stolen.
Many volumes disappear from the library
every year. Some are deliberately lifted,
others are lost or misplaced and forgotten.
The library should deal severely with such offenders. People who keep books out indefinitely cause great inconvenience to others.
Most withdrawals are recorded and can be
checked up. The worst criminal is he who
spoils a reference set by abstracting a volume,
or takes away irreplaceable material.
Harold King has composed the words and
music of a new university song called 'Hail,
U.B.C The student body has already adopted
the song, and the composer is to be
Hail congratulated on his achievement.
U. B. C. Before 'Hail, U.B.C becomes so
anciently established as to be sacred
in every syllable and every note, a little,discussion about it can do no harm. The music is
suitable and stirring, but I have heard several
criticisms of the words to the effect that the
tone is too boastful The third line is the worst
offender in this respect, and this could be
remedied by changing it from 'All other teams
acknowledge us masters' to something like
'Let other teams acknowledge us masters.' In
the last line, 'Bravery conquers care,' a better
word than''care' might be used, the difficulty
being one of rhyme—but rhyme should not
be allowed to be a tyrant.   All of which is
respectfully submitted.

On closer perusal, the anthology of Glasgow University verses, from which I recently
quoted 'A Professor's Reverie,' turns out to
be a surprising collection. Few selec-
Scotch tions are in serious vein, and many
Verses are flippant, farcical, mocking, lightly
and heavily humorous, There are
such contrasts as

His face is so smug,
It gives me a pain.
He talks like a mug-
His face la, so smug.
With a soul like a dug,
And a mind like a drain.
His face is so smug,

There are clever parodies, such, as 'Paat
and Present,' which opens thus:
I've forgotten, I've forgotten,
Where oxactly I waslwrn,
But there was a little window
Where the milk came in at morn;
I used to slip ln with the milk,
Which you needs must understand
Was exceedingly appropriate,
For both of us were canned.
The use of many classical names and references and the fact that most of the humor 4s
on a different level to our local undergrad
Muck, are partly accounted for in the index of
authors, which reveals that many have JM. A.
degrees, one has an L.L.B., and several tack
'D. Litt.' after their names.

Quite a crop of letters appeared on the
last editorial page. 'Constant Reader' objects
to the 'esoteric jests' of the Muck Page. On
referring to dictionary, I find 'eso-
Stern . teric' defined as 'meant for the ini-
Crltics Hated.' Some of the humor on the
Muck Page necessarily appeals chiefly to small groups—for instance, to friends of
a student who is there brought into the limelight. Even so, however, most of it, when it is
funny, has a universal appeal. The page is
famous, and is sometimes quoted in distant
places—and I note that an eastern publication
acknowledges exchange with 'Muck-a-Muck'
instead of with The Ubyssey.
If 'Constant Reader' is so stupid that he
does not know that Zilch is of the genus 'McGoofus,' 'McGillicuddy,' 'Scribblewell,' etc.,
then he had better confine his attention to the
editorial page.
As for 'Behaviorist,' I can't decide whether
he was trying tp be amusing or whether a 'not'
was omitted in his suggestion that all persons
who are members of the class concerned be
excluded from class draws. I strongly suspect
that somebody has erred.
What a torrent of stern criticism! Y. J.
invokes the Honor System re sticking of unde-
sired stickers on limousines. 'Two Sons of
Freedom' resent the suggestion of men's dress
reform and advise ye editors not to advertise
"their utter nescience in matters requiring a
moiety of common sense." Second the motion.

Why does 'Realist' think he is really a realist? In his letter he brands supporters of the
League of Nations 'sentimentalists' and asks
them to 'wait and see.' In one of
the elementary school texts a selection on the League is entitled
"The Hope of the World," and any
student of affairs surely realizes that the title
is literally true. In my opinion those who support the League are the realists and people like
'Realist' are reactionaries—and probably sentimental ones, too; but their sentiments are
not very creditable.
The League has come through a number
of crises and forestalled several conflicts, and
it will prevent war in Manchuria. Who can
doubt that, given the same situation twenty
years ago, Japan and China would now be at
each other's throats?

Government statistics recently published
reveal that Soviet Russia's compulsory education campaign is running 110 per cent, ahead
of schedule. During the czarist regime the
most ever in school was 7,235,000. Last year
there were 17,612,000 in Russian schools.

Editor, Ubyssey,
University of B. C,
Vancouver, B. C.
Dear Sir:
I was rather startled to see ,in your
issue of Friday, October 23, a letter
by "Two Sons of Freedom," criticizing your splendid editorial on dress
reform. It should have been evident,
even to these clever fellows, that the
urge to write about it was prima facie
evidence of the Importance of his
topic. From the style of their diatribe,
closely modelled on that of a well-
known local Anglo-Hottentot, I deduce that these Sons are Sophomores.
It Is delightful to read that "mere
man has arrived at a costume eminently suited to his needs." Illustrating
this point let us consider the vest,
or waistcoat: for evening wear, the
waistcoat Is useful In restraining the
lower end of a hard-boiled shirt, an*
here usurps the function of a cummerbund; again, when worn in conjunction with a derby hat, tne ve<t is
quite de rigueur for digging sewers;
but in what other instance can its existence be justified?
One is also pleased to learn that
"men dress to keep themselves
warm." Contemplate, Sir, that peculiar vestment fastened about the male
neck by a coloured rag, known as the
Collar and Tie. For the purpose of
defying the ley blasts of winter one
might as well don an extra pair of j
braces. How can the Sons of Freedom reconcile this anomaly with their
reactionary stand?
In their constant striving for improvement of attire the ladles show
real Intelligence and individuality.
The herd-instinct which Impels all
men to dress sombrely alike, and tha
ancestor-worship which tolerates no
change from the styles of Grandpa's
day, are alike to be deplored. Let us
have a little more of the mental hardihood so deprecated in the female by
these Sons of a very Spurious Freedom.
Yours for dress reform,
Editor's Note: This is the first com-
munlcatlon we have received with regard to Men's Dress Reform which
shows that higher intelligence supposed to exist ln a University. Further expressions of opinion, as wall as
suggestions for organising this movement, will be received with Interest.
We find it significant that tha writer
of this letter is a Science-man.
Gerald C. A. Jackson, M. A. Sc.,
who spent several years In Geological work In Rhodesia has secured his
degree of Doctor of Science from the
London University, after two years'
work at the Imperial College of Science and Technology.

Being sore troubled as to what to
tell you about today, my dear children, I groaned. Then said the Very
Wise Lady who is mother to the
Lady who thinks she Is very wise—
"Take up thy pen, o scribe, and
hymn the return of Watneius the
Sasamite to his (alma) maternal
halls. And ere thy pen. sputters out,
sing (as far as thy cold permits),
sing ye the Great Gatherings." And
so, with a leaky Waterman and a
proud heart, and twenty minutes to
write this durned column, sing I.
If you know any of our ancient
grads who possess the U. B. C. "Annual" for 1925, you will find that
D. P. Watney was one of the Arts
Class who graduated that year. The
"Annual" refers to him as "one of
those exceptional Theologs," which
may be a compliment. In those
days, he was a stalwart of the Rowing Club.
He graduated from the A. T. C.
in 1927, after which he assisted Mr.
McGaffin at St. Mary's Church, Kerrisdale. Then he fared, over the
Broad Seas until he reached the
waters of Cam, whereon stands* an
Ancient University. Here he tarried
awhile, and attacked a fierce Tripos,
which he slew. He spent some
months on the lost continent of Europe, where he may have slain other
Trlpl, but I am not quite sure of
At any rate, here he js again, full
of phil and fitness, another of U.B.C.'s grads who return to help her
win even greater fame, and the first
graduate of our College to become
a professor In the College which is
older than its University. And he
has returned just hi time for the
Great Gatherings!
The First Gathering happened yes-
terday-tha annual Donation Tea.
Hereto gathered the strong women
and the feeble men, bowed down
with pickles, Wen with jams, with
carrots and cabbages clasped unto
their bucsoms. Then came the manly Students and courteously relieved
the burdened, kindly conducted them
round, quickly contrived to provide
The Second Gathering comes to-
day-Dr. Vance is holding his Annual Reception to the Anglicans of
the University, students and faculty.
This differs from the First Gathering-all you need to bring is a smile
and if you don't bring it, we have
one for you, also an orchestra, tea
and a pleasant afternoon. So—leave
the Library, cut your classes, turn
from the track, floe from the fields

"I am strongly ln favor- of dress-
reform," stated Mr. R. W. McGoofus,
candidate for Junior Member. "We
men wear too many clothes. Why,
I remember at a poker party one
night...," "I don't think that would
be suitable for publication," murmured the reporter. "Ye*, yes, of
course, 1 understand," said Mr. McGoofus sympathetically.
"Although it Is true," continued
Mr. McGoofus, "that Mahatma Gandhi is no relation of mine, I look
upon him as a great dress-reformer.
He Is an ideal example. He Is a
shining light to any group of dress-
reformers . I recommend," continued
Mr. McGoofus thoughtfully, "an open
shirt and a pair of short trousers,
with plenty of ventilation. In fact,"
he added, "lace might well be used—
except here and there," he said hastily, "this thing must not be carried
too far." Gently Mr. McGoofus
knocked a vase onto the floor. "1
do not like that shade of blue," he
explained, smilingly.
"Mr. Ztlch-Mr. Zero Zacharlah
Zilch, I mean—is net in favor of
dress-reform, I understand. He is
too conservative. He ia not doing
right by our Varsity. He is deluding
hla supporters—few though I suspect
them to be. He is positively cruel
to them, denying them "sunshine la
great gobs," as the poet has so aptly
put it. Did I ever tell you that
story about Mr. Zilch—Mr. Zero Zacharlah Zlloh? It well illustrates hit
cruelty." "Shoot," said the reporter.
Mr. McGoofus, with his well-known
comprehension of modern slang, understood this statement after a little
less than ten minutes meditation.
"Well, It's like this," he said finally.
"Mr. Zilch—I refer to Mr. Zero Zacharlah Zilch, of course, please do not
misunderstand me—went up to a
Freshette, and says to her, seise,
Hello, baby' and she sex, sesshe, 'I
don't think I know you,' so he sea,
sesse, 'Don't you remember the boy
who used to pull your pigtails in
school?' So she see, sesshe, Oh, was
that you?' And he ses, sezse In a
nasty voice, 'No, that waa my father.'
And so to all of Mr. Zllch's supporters—Mr. Zero Zacharlah Zllch's
supporters—I say: Remember his
cruelty. Remember he Is deceiving
you.    Rufus McGoofus for ever!"
How He Ate His Lunch
Choice Chapeaux
Ten minutes after election results
came out last night, Rufus McGoofus had retrieved his hat. Only a
week ago It was announced that he
had thrown it into the ring when
Council accepted his nomination for
Junior Member.
."Nqt because I wanted to wear It,"
explained the defeated candidate,
"but because it was my hat and 1
paid for it I may wish to enter poll-
tics again."
The picture shows two of Washout's hats one of which he tossed
Into the ring last week. The other he
uses for a rugby helmet. Both are
perfect fits and McGoofus, although
a supporter of dress-reform, would
not, part with them for the world.
He says he wil sell them for two bits

"Zounds!" cried the King of
France as he gazed at his vassals
around him making wassail in the
banquet hall In the palatial palace
Of Varsye, "Tis indeed a group of
worthless rascals. Ah and Ods Bodkins! for the days of D'Artagnen and
the battles with the Duke of Buckingham and Richelieu. Naught do

kingdom for a horse whereon I
could sally forth, fifth and yea even
sixth did I have a steed. Alack, I
fear that this peace la verily a horse

Whereupon the king fell to musing
sadly and all the courtiers let him
fall and kept on wassailing and merging.
Then into the hall there burst a
messenger wearing the ebonpolnt of
of the Due de Bergonde. He (the
messenger please, not the Duo) slid
across the waxed floor to the foot
of the throne, dismounted from his
steed and fell dead with the message falling from his outstretched
The king awoke from hla reverie
where he had been counting up to
ten time and again, lumped with Joy
and cried, "A horse, a horse. Is it
mine or Is it Just another dark
horse?" '"Tis thine, oh Sovereign
and half-crown of France," salaamed the courtiers. "Open the door
and don't salaam it again," shouted
the monarch, and I will road this
He then read the note to his
steaming vassals who were carrying
a heavy cargo of intoxicants at the
time.—"Je vals ches voue. Mais
o'est la plume de ma tanto. Avos-
vous faime, mon cher Due? Oul,
mop ami o'est la guerre, toujours la
guerre. -Voire ami ave mille amMes
Due de Bergonde."
The Xing at once translated the
mesage for those of his subjects who
had yet to pass French 1.
"I, the Due de Bergonde, whose
life you once reserved, am now in'
a Jam—verily a grape Jam—in fact
It is a pretty pickle. But at present
I must beg of thee and thine to
come unto mine aid, for Burgundy
has again unloosed the dogs of war
and my wife is so afraid of hydrophobia she will not budge from the
house.   Please come and budget."
"Sacre Norn d'un nom," ejaculated
the court Jester, one Emll Gorenflot
Zilch by name, "Burgundy shall
whine. We will start a champagne
immediately." And then he fell Into
a fit of laughter at his own puns
arid was slowly booted out of the
room by all the courtiers except one
who tried a drop-kick, and missed.
"Gentlemen," hallooed the King,
"We must say farewell to the arms
of the fair ones and bid how do to
the stern realities against the Bur-
gundlan who would do wrong by
our nation." As one the courtiers
lifted their swords and shouted
"Ave Caesare, Moratorium te saluta-
"And again gentlemen I sound the
ralylng cry of royal France—A mol!
A mol!" shouted the King.
"A mol Semple McPherson?"
queried the Jester who had sneaked
back into the hall.
"No," hissed the King. "A mol
alone because I love you."
That sort of thing could have gone
on all night but the King soon put
a stop to it. So the King ordered
more Canada Dry and said to his
subjects, "To war. But first let us
drink and feast and dine and wine
and eat and Imbibe for after us

shout with me—all for one and one
tor all and me for you and you and
you for me and tea for two and two
for tea and one for a dime and three
for a quarter."
"Huzza!" shouted the court plastered, and outside the rabble shouted, "Hurrah," not being able to afford the more expensive huzzas.
At that time the queen who had
been sleeping quietly In the throne
next to the King's, moved uneasily
and muttered, "Don't snore so loudly Egbert." (The King's name was

We regret to announce that our candidate for the post
of Junior Member, Rufus Washout McGoofus, has been defeated by a one-vote majority. This is heartbreaking news.
Rufus lost the election because some one did not vote. A careful check up on the voters' list shows that two Sciencemen,
three Aggies, and one partial student did not exercise their right
of franchise.   So much for their college spirit.
If these scoundrels had had enough real backbone to dare
the perils of the Students' Council office and cast their votes,
we do not hesitate to say that tha outcome would have been
totally different. However, as Z. _. Zilch was defeated by an
overwhelming plurality, the true issue of the election has not
been lost to the world in general and to the U. B. C. in particular. Zilch Is a scurvy rogue, as everyone but Zilch knows,
and is unworthy of the honor of the position of Junior Member.
The issue of the day is based upon dress reform. Dress
reform, therefore, is the issue of the hour. Z. Z. Zilch Is against
reform, as it does away with cigars. No man wearing a dinky
pair of shorts, and a diminutive gym shirt, can look dignified
smoking a cigar. Dignity is all that Z. Z. Zilch possesses. Rufus
W., the people's zoological choice, can look dignified in anything. This is because he ia a graduate. The columns of this

Letters To The Editor
Now Maybe You'll Read It
"I am confident that I shall be
ejected by a thumping majority,"
quoth Zlmple Zlmon Zilch, candidate
for the office of Junior Member, in
a special Interview to the "Muck
Page" once upon a time.
"Of course, I don't really like to
mention it, but my opponent Mr.
Rufus McGoofus is a graduate and
Is therefore illegible. In fact any
thinking person can read him like a
book. I admit that Council has
waived his disqualifications but ia it
a permanent votive?" he queried
Now my candltature is based on my
outstanding qualities. Why, In lineups in the Cat. or for Frosh Recap
tlon tickets I can outstand any body.
This will be of great use to me when
I am on Council as Council hu to
stand a lot and it takes much of self'
control to do that.
McGoofus has or will advocate a
policy of economy, which is merely
copying candidates for the last eight-
teen years. I consider this a policy
fraught with danger as someday
Council may even out down on Its
suppers in the Caf. and do without
Instead of decreasing expenditures
I should raise more money. There
are many ways ln which one could
capitalize campus activities. For instance, why not charge admission to
the performances of the Women's Education Gym Classes? Why not
charge commission on the crap games
In the Pub and Caf? Why not I ask?
And the answer comes back, why
"In conclusion," concluded Mr. Z.
Z. Zilch, "I would like to conclude.
My platform demands the abolition
of the Students' Council. What this
country needs Is more money. That's
what I am here for. The only way
Council keeps the money circulating
is by passing the buck. We need more
money, why not throw open the
Frosh reception to the public and
then hold it somewhere else? And
still the answer comes back, why
I hear that McGoofus Intends to
run for Council. Now I ask you, does
Council need a Junior Member or
only an errand boy. And again the
answer comes back, what's the dlff?
Nextly I must protest against the
unfair treatment I have received in
the Ubyssey.   My name have been
mis-stated.   Five columns were de
voted to McGoofus and only one to
me.   I have been accused of rank
plagiarism.    My  motto  was  incom
pletely quoted.   It is "what McOoof
us hath done, Zilch could do only he
was brung up proper." Other phrases
are "Zilch for Zuccezz," "Zilch, the
man with omission,'  and  "Vote for
Zilch and keep your money at home
In a strong box."

Dear Cherub:
It seems that even in the few short
years that have elapsed since the
frogs first decorated the Lily Pond,
the student body has forgotten their
import and significance. Several conjectural and lamentably ignorant art-
tides have been published ln the official bulletin of the oracle of Etaoin (which I have been informed is
under your care) which give highly
Innacurate explanations of the statues before tiie library. This, my
dear Cherub, cannot, must not,
should not, may not and ought not to
go on. Permit me to recount the
true origin of these famous memorials.
Long, long ago, the year before
last, Prof. Gargle McHootch, that
world-famous savant and head of the
local Strabotomy Department, celebrated hla eighty-third birthday. To
memorialise the event, the first of
its kind on record, the Professor decided to present the University with
a fitting symbol of the occasion, to
with, the frogs.
These sculptural monuments represent the three graces, only there
are but two. Originally it was intended to portray Faith, Hope and
Charity, but after a protracted survey of the local student body the
donor was forced to the conclusion
that the atudenta were hopeless, and
so only Faith and Charity were-left.
These two are sometimes known as
Before and After, since before entering tiie University, students live
on Faith, and after leaving they live
oh Charity. Tho waters of the pond
represent the Well of Knowledge and
naturally the creatures having recourse to it spend their lives In
spouting. The reptilian nature of the
monuments was doubtless suggested
by tha Science faculty, while the
color needs no comment.
Incidentally I lament the fact that
the Muck Page has felled recently
to Interview Prof. McHootch upon
the problems of the hour. Trusting
to see this omission rectified hi the
near future, I remain,

Soccermen in Victory
Over Sons of England;
Mundaytores Twice
In a game which was featured by plenty of action, Varsity's Second Division Soccer Team won a clear-cut 2-fr triumph
over Sons of England on Saturday at McBride Park. Odie
Munday capped a stellar performance at inside right, by scoring a fine goal in each half of the game and accounting for his
team's margin of victory. "Piccolo" Pete Frattinger kept a
close watch over the Blue and Gold citadel at Varsity's end of
the field, and sailed through some panicky situations in a manner that brought forth some well earned applause.
T)te game started off with Varsity.*.
facing a strong wind which Sons of
England quickly made of material assistance in their attack. Grant and
Vollans, University backs, soon found
themselves ln difficulties and were
forced to concede comer after comer
from which the Bona were at times
unfortunate in not scoring. On a
sally into enemy territory, Millar McGill gave the visitors' cohorts an awful
turn when he stood in front of their
goal with not a soul around to stop
him, but deciding there wasn't enough
opposition to make things interesting
he turned the ball past the goal,
and did the opposition a kindness.
Once'he had concluded this strange
interlude with himself, Millar turuod
In and played some dandy football
for the remainder of the game.
Just before the Interval, Archie
MacDougall placed a beautiful shot
from a free kick right into the goal
mouth, and Odie Munday, using perfect Judgment, headed the ball out of
the goalie's heads for Varsity's first
counter. At tiie other end, Frattinger worked like a Trojan to help his
team-mates keep their lead until the
whistle blew for half-time.
After the oranges, the game speeded.
up a little with the Blue and Gold
squad pressing Bona of England hard.
Jimmy Smith at outside right, who
played a sound game right from the
start, did some fine work in this half
.and wee unfortunate in not breaking
lute the score sheet He put in two
lovely shots, one which the Sons'
net-minder just barely managed to
tip over the cross-bar, and another
which had everybody beaten but unfortunately hit the post. Odie Mun-
'day ended the scoring with another
nice goal.
Besides those already mentioned,
Laurie and Dave Todd were very
much in the picture, while Costain
showed flashes of his real form. Captain Paul Kozoolin played the game
throughout with an injured foot and
certainly deserves credit for his performance under such a handicap.
The team: Frattinger; Grant and
Vollans; Kozoolin, Costain, and MacDougall; J. Smith, Otis Munday, M.
McGill, Dave Todd and Laurie Todd.
Varsity's senior city Canadian rug
by squad broke into the. win column
Saturday when they   defeated   the
V. A. C. team 13-3 at McBride Park.
The game was played on a greasy
field which proved a hazard to tack-
lers and eliminated any possibilities of aerial attacks. Both teams
put up a good battle, line play on
each side featuring the game. The
students had a decisive edge on the
Vacs ln the matter of ball handling.
In the first quarter the play
ranged from end to end with neither
team having sufficient force to go
over. Varsity triad the only forward
pass of the game which went over
the receiver's head. In tiie second
session the Blue and Gold secured
possession of the ball on the Clubbers' ten yard line and pounded
their way through for the initial
touch, Knight carrying the ball and
Hlsette converting. For the rest of
the quarter neither team got within scoring distance and the half ended with the Point Grey lads leading
In tiie third canto the Vacs got
going In smoother , formation and
marked up three points with a kick
to the deadline and a safety touch.
The fourth session found Varsity
pressing strongly and with the game
nearly over Henderson broke away
for a nice run stopping at V. A, C.'s
15 yard line. On the next play he
carried the ball over for tiie second
touch of the game. Hlsette again
converted ending the score.
Henderson was outstanding for
U. B. C, while Knight, Hlsette,
Bowers and Stewart showed up effectively.
Ruggers Lose
Double Header
At Douglas Pk.
Both the Varsity second and third
division English rugby teams lost at
Douglas Park on Saturday, the intermediates suffering a 21-0 defeat
at the hands of Marpole while the
Frosh went > down 12-0 before Ex-
The Intermediates were never in
the picture against the league leaders, seldom getting beyond the halfway mark. Marpole ran over four
tries In the first half, the three-
quarters doing all the scoring despite a sloppy field. The second
half was a repetition, ot the first,
with the Marpole backs plajgng
their usual brilliant game to run in
another nine points before the final
The Frosh had much more of the
play against Ex-Normal' than the
score Indicates, but lacked tiie extra
power to cross the line. Varsity
missed many easy chances to score
on penalty kicks, and threw three
points away when they allowed Nixon to score while under the impression that hf had over-run the sideline. The U. B. C. scrum played
well but the backs lost chances
through hesitation. Nixon figured
largely In the scoring for Ex-Normal
while no one was outstanding for
the Frosh.
Co-ed Hockeyists
Defeated in Two
Garnet Saturday
U. B. C. was defeated 2-1 and Varsity 4-0 in women's grass hockey
games Saturday.
The Varsity team was rearranged
for this game and the team as a
whole played better than it has
previously. On the other hand, the
U. B. C. line-up was weaker and
had a hard time holding its own on
the slippery field.
Both games were played at Strathcona Park, Varsity played Ex-Magee. Varsity's 'centre forward, Isabel MacArthur showed up very well
considering the fact that It was her
first hockey game this season. She
and Eileen Allchln could not tally
although they made many rushes at
the opposing goal. The new goalie
for Varsity was really the backbone
of the team, and made many beautiful saves.
The U.B.C team played the North
Vancouver Grads immediately following the Varsity game.
This game was fast and furious,
U. B. C. scoring easily in the first
period through Bea Sutton. Carol
Sellars and VI Mellish tried very
hard to score but the count remained 1-0 at the end of the first
The North Shore players evened
the score during the first few minutes of the second period. Another
goal felowed soon after. This made
the score 2-1 in favor of North Van.
.From then on both teams tried hard
to add more points, but each held
the other. Mamie McKee, Mabel
Brown, Elmi Teppo and Rosalind
Young all showed up well for U.B.C.
Stick Wielders
Prove Superior
To Cricketers
The Varsity men's grass hockey
team struck its stride Saturday when
it handed the Cricketers a 2-0 walloping at Connaught Park.
Cricketers were handlcaped by
the absence of one player but despite this drawback they made several dangerous attacks on the college goal early in the game. The
Varsity defense, however was sound
and half-time came round without
a tally for either side. •
Soon after the cross o-ei Punnett
followed up a long drive from centre
field to beat the Bat WIc'.Jks custodian and draw first blood. Fallowing this affront Cricketeron concentrated their strength in th? front
line and presed heavily about the
Varsity circle. Spurrier, the college
star centre half, hurt his shoulder
and went to the wing where ho was
compelled to play with one hand.
Cricketers forced several corners
and the resultant shots gave Selder
in the Varsity net plenty to think
about. About five minutes fro.i;
time the Blue and Gold forwards
broke through and Snowslll bulged
the net for the second college mark-
er following a melee In front of the
Cricketer goal mouth.
On thc student team Spurrier as
usimI was a tower of stro.itfth tit
centre half while Jakeway, also on
iho middle line, succeeded in checking his man consistently. Among
the ?oiwards Knight and But were

Go Up and Down
For Membership
In a thick fog would-be mountaineers conquered the hazards of Dam
and Goat Mountains last Sunday,
when they completed qualifications
for membership in the Varsity Outdoors Club.
A party of nine girls stayed overnight at the cabin and the next
morning want up Dam Mountain.
Many difficulties were encountered
due to the heavy fog, and to the
three feet of fresh snow which covered everything.
Twenty or more members and
tyros took the 1:20 ferry from Vancouver on Sunday morning, and after an hour's climb arrived at the
cabin in various degrees of wetness.
Roaring f faros were soon going and
steaming coffee was served to the
drenched climbers.
The Men's trip started at 12:20.
The route taken was over Dam
Mountain and up the steep south
face of Mt. Goat. The dense fog
made directions hard to ascertain
and the heavy snow further complicated difficulties by obliterating
all resemblances to trails. The climb
however, was made without mishap.
From the appearance of the turnout this year at the Rowing Club, it
looks as though the Boat Club Is
getting off to a good start Undeterred by the fact that the Club
broke up last year and that only ai
few of the old members returned.
Freshmen as well as upper-classmen
turned out in good numbers. At
present there are over 40 prospective members and more are expected. Despite the rain and the cold,
about 25 members turned out at the
practice this Saturday.
The newcomers are showing excellent form and with a little trebling should provide material for two
first class Eights and perhaps a
couple of Fours. The Club has not
decided on its final program for the
season yet, owing to the fact that
some of the members have not yet
paid their fees, and until this little
details has been attended to, a settled outline of activities can not be
A red-headed petrel, "Cokie"
Shields by name, who at one time
played stellar ball for the Blue and
Gold, brought about the down-fall
of U. B. C.'a senior gridders when
they battled V. A. C. at Athletic
Park Saturday afternoon and lost
the tussle 13-0.
Shields scored all the points for
the Clubers by his tricky running
and classy booting. Varsity were
outplayed all the way until the dying minutes of the last quarter when
they started a belated rally which
placed them on V. A. C.'s five yard
line but failed to hold the ball
The students appeared to take
things fairly easily out on the field
and did not show the old fighting]
spirit for their alma mammy that
they usually evidenced in former
games. Perhaps they are lying back
for the intercollegiate and perhaps
again they are juat lying back
In the first quarter .three minutes
after the opening whistle Shields
punted down the field and Varsity
fumbled and from then on It was
a story of how many points V. A. C.
could pile up. Shields raced around
the end for the first score of five
but failed to convert. Shields again
kicked down the field to Root who
was rouged behind the lines making
tht markers total up to six for the
Dirom was sent on to stem the
tide but the Clubers were not to be
denied and when the students lost
poaesslon Cokie let drive for a field
goal which sent the score to nine
for V. A.' C. Dirom, Murock and
Root were playing pretty smooth
baH but could not forge ahoad
h»ainst the V. A. C. line.
Then V. A. C. started out fo- more
tallieb and Errington tore down the
field In the third quarter for 88
yards and Shields for 8, and It all
ended with Root, who made a valiant effort to save, being rout-ed
again for another point. Thus the
score stood at 10-0 at the end of the
third canto.
The fourth quarter was the best
by far for the Point Grey lads although they were scored on. Murdock started the rally when he"
barged through for eight yards. Root
took the ball for a stroll for another
three and Murdock again carried It
for six and then Waimsley dashed
away for five more for two first
downs. Murdock then took the oval
on a tearing run and reeled off
twelve yards and then he and
Walmsely went another thirteen to
place the ball down for the fourth
first down. They went through for
eleven more yards and placed the
pigskin on V. A. C.'s five yard line.
Here after all this courageous battle
of plunging and eking out yardage
they lost possession and the play
ended with ball on V. A. C.'s twenty-five yard line, chalking up another loss for U. B. C.
The students showed all the ability
they had in that last quarter, and
if they can emulate that against the
prairies for a whole game Instead
of a few minutes they are as good
as declared intercollegiate champions.
Shields outshone every one on the
field for Individual brilliant playing
and was aided by cohorts Errington, Moore, Gordon. For Varsity,
Root, Dirom, Perdue, Murdock,
Waimsley, Bolton, Hedreen and
Chodat played well.

Varsity's junior soccer eleven lost
to Royal City by a score of 6-0 at
Clarke Park Saturday afternoon. The
play was nearly even despite the
discrepancy Indicated in the score
sheet, Varsity's defeat being attributed mainly to their lack of shooting ability. In addition, the muddy
condition of the grounds rendered
accurate ball control Impossible.
After IS minutes of end to end
play Hyslof opened the scoring with
a hard ground shot from close
range. Play on the Westminster
right wing terminated when King
put his team two goals up with a
well-placed shot from a hard angle.
The struggle then switched to mid-
field for a short time following
which Fraser added a third counter
from a scramble In front of the Varsity custodian. At half-tune the
score stood 3-0 for the visitors.
In the second canto Westminster
were largely In control all through.
Cy Smith, who had been setting in
a great deal of effective work sent
his forwards away many times, but
they failed to tally. Midway ln the
second session Royal City scored
two goals in quick succession. Hlslof
netted the first and Fraser marked
up the second less than a minute
later, Just before the final whistle
Hislof chalked up another counter
adding to the already one-sided
score, which completed the devastation for the day.
Cy Smith was outstanding for the
Blue and Gold and Hlslof for Royal
City with a hat trick performance.

Varsity and Occasionals drew six all in the second Miller

From the outset Varsity's lighter team, weakened by the
absence of Dave Ellis, was pushed back to its ten yard line

minutes Bruce Ledingham broke away from the scrimmage
and clipped over Varsity's line near the flag for the first try,
which went unconverted.

meet with the Y.M.C.A. Activities commence
at 8 p.m. and it is expected that the program
can be run off by 10 o'clock.
Following the athletic preliminaries a
dance will be held from 10 to 12. Student
tickets at thirty-five cents will admit holders
to both the meet and the dance. Further details will be supplied in Friday's issue of the
field and Varsity's 2S yard line until
the Occasionals staged a fine three-
quarter run enabling McKedle to
touch down between the posts. Murray failed to convert. For a time
Varsity made a determined rush into
Occasional territory but waa pushed
back to mid field where play centered
for some time. Three quarter attacks
each way were stopped by hard tackling. Finally Varsity forwards, following a long kick by Howie Cleveland, worked the ball well Into Occasionals 25 yard area. A tricky three
quarter run brought the play back to
student territory but fast work returned It, and at half time the score
stood six-nothing against the student aggregation.
The second half opened with Varsity attacking. Several three quarter
runs were stopped' by the students
and the ball gradually worked down
into Occasional defense area. Two
Varsity rushes failed to result in any
score, but Phil Barratt converted a
penalty bringing the total to 6-3.

Following another long dribble, Vic
Rogers went over for the last try,

back and forth mostly in Occasional
territory. Stewart and Barratt staged
a forty yard run, but were stopped a
few yards short. The ball waa rushed
right back, but never passed the students' 28 yard line. Before the end

Although outweighed, Varsity forwards, backed by excellent defence
play, turned in a very fine game.
Stewart at wing three and Phil Barratt at 7-8 both played a fast brand
of rugger, while Rogers and Robbins
showed good work with their feet.
Mitchell, Mason and Stobie also gave
a good account of themselves.

U. B. C. and Meralomas battled to
a scoreless draw in the second English Rugby game played Saturday at
the Brockton Point Oval. The teams,
fought tooth and nail the whole route
but neither could cross their oppon*
ent's line. •
Long runs and fine kicking featured. Bobby Gaul turned in a splendid performance, his speed and tricky
running proving a continual source of
worry to the clubbers. The Meralomas, however, presented a stonewall
defence and afforded the collegians
few -opportunities. Several men who
had reverted to the English Code after
a try at the Canadian game strengthened their lineup. U.B.C.'s forwards
were heeling well, but proved rather
weak in the loose. Llne-outs were
evenly divided. Fullbacks of both
teams found plenty of opportunities
for kicking duels.
The second half brought about some
see-saw rugby, with U.B.C. doing
most of the forcing. Chris Dalton
got away for some nice runs and the
Mercer brothers, Art and Ken, made
some nice kick-and-follow up plays.
Play see-sawed back and forth some
more, Jimmy Moyes breaking through
on several occasions, only to come to
grief at the hands of the Meraloma
forwards, who were tackling low and
hard. The Meraloma wings' intercepted many U. B. C. three-quarter
runs, but found the students' defence
an equally hard nut to crack. The
clubbers' fullback came to their rescue time and again with fine kicks,
and in this respect he slightly outdistanced Hamber. On the whole, the
teams were evenly matched, but
U.B.C. supporters claim that their
boys should have copped the verdict.
