Australian Waratahs to Meet
Varsity Ruggers Wednesday
All Aftornoou Lecture* art Cancelled In Honor of Event
Kick-off at 3 p.m. Brockton Point
The Waratahs have arrived. The crack New South Wales Rugby squad
from Australia which will clash with the Blue and (lout Wednesday next at
I p.m. are la town. Representing perhaps the most cosmopolitan aggregation
et pig-skin chasers that have visited these shores tor some tlms the Ausstes
report that they, are In fair shape and are to-day taking the stiffness out of
their less la a short work-out.
Ia honor of the coming event there will be tto lectures Wednesday afternoon and the student body will assemble at Brockton Point la a body. Speolal
•tudentjjokets at 50 cents will be put on sals at once.
The Waratahs have been Invited to
vlalt the tJffitereUy and will he on

The splendid physique and powerful build ot the players becomes apparent at first glance. The average
height ot 18 forwards is 8 tt. The
average age of the team is 28 years.
The most ohtstoadlflg member of the
team as regards weight and else is
Fiord whp weighs 215 lbs. and stands
6 ft. 1 inch. Tbe smallest man is
Duncan at half-back who weighs 160
lbs..and stands 5 ft. 4 inches. Most
of tho roports of the games in whioh
the team has participated stress the
speed and strength of the forwards.
They are rated on a par with the All
Blacks.
B. C.  IN THE  PINK OF
CONDITION
In anticipation of one of the most
Important games ot their young lives
tbe first string men havo been throwing all their pent up energy into hard
workouts and snappy practices. To
finish off a most tiring training
season the whole crew have turned
out at 7 a.m. during the last two
days and following to-morrow's
practice will rust during the next
three days. This should put the
boys in the best of shape and combined with their traditional determination and fighting spirit should
offer the Waratahs some stiff opposition.
Capt. Bert Tupper is O.K. again
and has been turning out regularly.
Richardson reports his ankle in excellent shape. Fred Forrester and
Bud Murray have been spending some
little time practising hooking and
expect to have things down pat for
every kind of play. Bill Locke suffered A bad jar to his shoulder when
he took a hard tackle Wednesday but
is better now, SparkB Is again growing out of his boots but this has not
affected his heavy scrum work. Another added feature to tho last few
practises has been some fust hard
tackling, the results of which can
only be judged from reports ot the
victims. Coach Tyrwhltt iB taking no
chances on any tnlsplays or lost
tackles during the next fracas and is
stressing work to strengthen past
weaknesses.
Mock Parliament to
Resume Its Activities
On account of the vote of non-confidence that was passed against tho
government at the Parliament's last
session, and due to a lack of attendance, a regular meeting of the "wise
men" was not held. However, on
Wednesday afternoon tbe members
who turned up, held an open forum.
Inch pewon was asked to give his
opinion on the question  of  placing
Ss&adtan Rugby as a major sport ot
it* University.
ffveryone had a different suggestion
as to which sport should be tho major
sport. Mr. Yerburgh upheld Canadian
Rugby, while Mr. Macdonald said that,
although he himself was not a player,
th* game of chess was certainly more
educative and braln-atimulating. Due
to the groat Interest shown In roller-
skating, Mr. Morley placed It as the
greatest game. Mr. Morrison then sug*
gestsd skipping as not being so brutal
as rugby or so revolving as roller-skating. Mr, Tobin looked at our Rugby
from a different point ot view. Let us
be original. We have Canadian Rugby
as a sort of national sport., so we
should uphold tt.

Since the mystery of "Who Is Martha?" was solved, repeated request.-*
have been received for further particulars concerning the principals who

the Twelfth Annual Spring Concert
of the Musical Society next Friday

known In I'nlversity circles, having
been Secretary ot the Alma Mater Society last year, and for two years an
Inter-colleglate debater. In thu season of 1925-26 she was Vice-President
of the Musical Society, having been
an enthusiastic member since her
freshman year. She will also bo remembered for her boIo work last
year In the excerpt from "Mndame
Butterfly," and as "Leonora" (from 11
Trovatore) at the 192« Concert.
Miss Elaine Jackson (Arts '29) sings
In the role of "Nancy," tho waiting
maid to "Lady Harriet." Miss Jack-
Bon Is a new member of the Society
who comes from Kamloops, where she
Is popular in musical circles.
Mr. Bill Plommer (Arts '29) takes
the part of "Lionel," where his fine
tenor voice Is displayed to advantage.
Mr. Plommer Is a familiar figure on
the campus. He ia Vice-President of
the Musical Society, and will be remembered as "Manrloo" In tho duet
"Home to Our Mountains," which appeared on last year's programme.
Those who witneased the Christmas
Plays will recognise In him the lover
"Chang" from "The Willow Pattern."

Varsity is Defeated
by Unanimous
Decision
The Women's Building proved quite
Inadequate to accommodate the very
large audience that was present on
Wednesday evening to welcome the
Maritime debaters. lx»ng before tho
scheduled time for the debate to begin
nearly every seat had been taken, and
by 8:80 many were compelled to stand
In the gallery, Dr. Boggs was tho
chairman for the evening and Welcomed the visiting debaters, Mr. Paul ot
Acadia, and Mr. Howse of Dalhousie,
who subsequently succeeded In gaining a unanimous decision of the
judges over Messrs. Telford and
Murphy of tho University ot British
Columbia.
Mr. Paul, speaking for the affirmative, opened the discussion ot the resolution, Resolved, that the present
system of buying manufactured
artloles on the installment plan Is
beneficial to the buying public." He
very ably demonstrated the tact that
the system Ot installment buying Is an
inevitable and natural stop in the evolution ot our credit system, and constitutes an Integral factor In large
Bcale production. Mr. Paul spoke eloquently and WaB enthusiastically received by the oudienoe.
Mr. DoUg. Telford opened the case
for the negative, and built up a strong
argument by showing that the system
under discussion only led to Indiscreet
consumption, and to an accentuated
business cycle, with the attendant
evils of flamboyant prosperity In tho
booming years and starvation In the
lean years that Inevitably follow.
Mr. Howse of Dalhousie was probably the most popular speaker of the
evening and held the audience by his
eloquent address in which he stressed
the fact that the Installment system
encouraged thrift and tended to raise
the standard of living. He also pointed out that the negative was basing
Its claim on the grounds that this system was misused, which, he contended
was no proof that the system was
wrong in its entirety.
Mr. Murphy spoke last and in a very
remarkable speech certainly upheld
the honor ot Varsity's debatlug talent.
He laid special emphasis on the fact
that a man in debt is virtually a slavo
and being such constitutes a very serious menace to society as a whole. He
also condemned the high-pressure
salesmen who tempt rather poor
people to mortgage their future earnings for luxuries that they can well
afford to do without. Mr. Murphy's
speech was very .straightforward and
forceful and bad perhaps the greatest
effect upon the audience. He challenged and ably refuted many of his
opponents' arguments.
Rebuttals did uot succeed in bringing any further detatl to bear upon
the various arguments advanced during the course of the evenlug. Mr.
Howse, however, was especially brilliant, und lt may be said that it was
In tbe rebuttals that the Maritime debaters succeeded in gaining the upper
hand, and in gaining the decision ot
the Judges, Mr. Butterfleld, Mr. Mc-
Alpine and Mr. Ogilvle.
After the debate Dr. Boggs conducted a party, with some fear and trepidation due to the tact that It consisted ot thirteen, down to the Chinese
Theatre where our friends from the
Blast were vastly amused by the
strange antics of tho actors. Subsequently, a novel and certainly entertaining (If not extremely appetising)
banquet was staged ln ono of the
prominent chop-suey restaurants
where it Is rumoured that Ab White-
ley defeated all coiners In tho noodle
eating competition.
It Is worthy of note that the Maritime Debaters have hold eleven contests sinco leaving the Rest and hnve
so far lost hut two. Thoy will conclude their tour by two more debates,
one against the Canuck Cluh In Calgary on the nth, and tho other against
tho University of Manitoba at Winnipeg a tew days later. Whether or not
these gentlemen win thoso debates,
nothing will detract from the Illustrious reputation that they have es-

STUDENTS'
DISCUSSES FINANCE
At a meeting of the Students' Council on Tuesday night, a good deal of
time was spent In discussion of Rowing Club's finances. Walt MacDonald
appeared for the olub and explained
how the money had been spent. It
was decided that bills amounting to
165.80 be paid, minus whatever is in
the budget. The Rowers were also
granted ah additional budget ot $84
to pay for a coach boat
, There was much said about bills
for X-rays for Injured players. Council has been paying for several of
these of late and it decided that all
bills for special treatment (Including
X-rays, cardiographs, massages, electric treatments, etc.) under the Injured Players' Trust Fund, be not
paid from this date on.
The report of the Banff trip was
passed, It was decided because of
lack of finances, that no delegate will
be Bent to the P. 1. P, A. convention
this year.
There was much discussion about
the proposed eligibility rules which
will be adopted. It has been proposed
that no Freshman be allowed to engage ln a major event until he has
written the Christmas exams, It was
also proposed that no student whoso
standing Is Incomplete be allowed to
take part in any activity, which will
necessitate Ids absence from class.
The whole question was thoroughly
discussed at a Joint meeting of council and Home members of the faculty
on Thursday afternoon, and will be
reported in Tuesilny's Issue.

LEAP YEAR BALL
A report in ono of the city papers atates that many of tho
woman itudenti are planning to hold parties down town after tho
eloaing of the Leap Year Hull. The aamo report loavos uncontradicted the impression that theae parties are sponsored by tho Dean
of Women, We think it only fair to contradict thia impression absolutely. The said parties will not be sponsored or approved by the
Dean of Women or the University authorities.
If some students wish to hold suppor parties after tho Yean Year
dance they aro perfectly at liberty to do so. We think it unfortunate in thla ease, however, that the women studontB ahould set tho
example tor thia kind of affair when they themselves are responsible
lor the evening's entertainment. It is still moro unfortunate that
thi understandings should be abroad that these parties have the
approval of tho University authorities.
MIRACLE OF MIRACLES
If there hat been any one thing deplored during tho past yonr
or io more than anything olso it is the lack of interest in und poor
attendance at debates. After last night's turn-out at the Women's
Building, however, tho student body deserves congratulation. There
Were to be sure a majority of outsiders but the increusc iti student
attendance over that of previous debates is indoed very gratifying.
Al thii was the greatest of all debates held this yoar it would have
been extremely disappointing especially to our visitors had attendance proved unsatisfactory. But as it was the attendance exceeded
all expectations and the capacity of the Women's Building was taxed
to the utmost.
The result of the debate is not at all to be taken as a sign of
weakness in forensic talent at this University. Students must remember that in almost every intercollegiate debate, the visiting men
are law students who have had several years experience practicing
debating, not as a sideline, but as a vital part of their university
course. Messrs. Telford and Murphy put up a magnificent fljrht
and deserve every bit as much credit ns if they had won.
Laat week it wns "our faith in democracy" that wns established. This week it is otn* faith in debuting and student interest
in it.
THE CYNICAL EYE
From a position of cynical aloofness on the campus—it may
seem to many—we continue to rail ineffectually nt the greater and
leaser errors of student life. Perhaps our criticism isn't always
constructive, it may even savour of a I'uritan-like frown of disapproval, but at least, it is criticism. Shaw has said that anyone
under thirty who isn't vigorously discontented with things ns they
are, is inferior. Well if the best of the .student body is content we
are not.   We leave you to draw yonr own eonelnsiniis.
To tnke n matter of some minor ( .') importniiee, We remember
to have experienced a distinct and unpleasant shock on (inmville
Street one day when confronted with the broad buck of a briu'ht
yellow slicker on whieh were painted caricatures, (|iiestionabli> jokes,
bathing beauties—all this, mind you, Nurroumlinj* the University
crest! How many slickers of this type continue to broadcast to tlie
public at large the very questionable taste and intelligence of at least
some members of the student body, It may be all right to be younp:
and foolish while you can, but the rest of the University may object
to being judged by the puerile nonsense of the few.
Another thing—no we aren't going to go through the whole
list this time, we have to save some thunder for a future occasion—
how many people have more than their share of books out of the
libraryt One person we know has nt the present time 18 books out.
It ia hardly fair to other students, particularly honour students, for
one person to take out all the available books on a subject at one
time. We know too that many members of the faculty havo even
more than 18 books at once, books too that are essential in many of
the oourses. It is little wonder that one can waste much valuable
time searching for material on a subject when it ia not there.

Editor "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
May I second the suggestion appear*
ing ln the editorial columns of the
"Ubyssey—that the Students' Council
publish in the "Ubyssey" a detailed
account of receipts and disbursements.
Few, If any, ot the students know
which of our activities constitute the
heaviest drain on the Alma Mater
funds. The balance sheet published at
the end of tho session may be all right
from the auditors point of view, but it
is ot little value to the student.
If a detailed account wero published
at the end of each college yoar we
could then see how much each of our
activities was costing us and whether
any were self supporting,
I do not mean to Imply that our
activities should be Judged from thu
standpoint of money makers, or money
losers, but ts long as wa are wlthbut
this Information In a concise form,
muoh time and energy Is wasted In
argument that could he bettor utilised
In helping along those activities needing support.
The more Information we have on a
subject  the  more Interest  we may
reasonably be expected to take in it.
Yours sincerely,
ROY GRAHAM

Editor, "Ubyssey"
Dear Madam:
Over a month ago I submitted a
copy of a humorous article obtained,
with permission tn print, from tho
Greater Vancouver Publicity Bureau.
The assistant editor who received it
looked It over, said It was good, and
that it would be published next Issue.
Next Issue tho article was missing.
Also the next. I went to see why and
was told, "Too much copy—In next
Issue." Another two weeks passed by
and still no article. Again 1 went to
see why and received assurances that
the printer, the printer's devil, or
what have you; anyone except the
office force, had mislaid It but when,
and if, lt was found It would most
assuredly be published.
Now I feel that the only way I can
square myself with the authors Is to
havo you publish tho article, return It,
or give an explanation for doing
neither.
As our chief concern In the article
seemed to be tho number of words l
will help you out, This contains 177,
count 'em.
Yours truly,

Editor'** Note: As tho article In
question was not submitted through
the proper channels we can accept no
responsibility as to its fate, It the
article was intended for the "Muck-amuck" page, it should have been given

not large, several members who could
not appear sent original work. The
poetry produced was sufficiently good
to warrant the Club's cherishing the
hope of a chap-book at somo future
date. The two short stories read bad
subjects of unusual Interest, and called forth some argument. All the contributions were anonymous, the reader's name belns utt ached to each one
by tho author.
It Is hoped, now that tho Ice has
been broken, that an "Original Contributions" evening will become a reg*
uliir feature of the Club's programme

Dr. Schneck Speaks
on Forestry
A well attended meeting was held
on Monday under the auspices of the
Engineering Institute at which an ad*
dress wus given by Dr. C. A. Schonck,
the noted German forestry expert who
Is at present making a tour ot North
America.
Dr. Schenck's address had no special
title but It was the philosophy ot a
man who has devoted his life to for*
entry, which he feels Is a cause rather
than a science. Ho has combined philosophy with study and teaching In
Europe and America for the past
forty years. He feels that those who
devote their energy to this field are
serving the race in tbe greatest possible way and that such service will
be necessary If we are to preserve
our forests. The democratic nations
of the world have been slow to realise
the necessity of conserving their for*
est resources and tho result ts that
some European countries have miles
of barren waste Instead of thick forests. This, he hopes, will not be the
late of the forests ot North America.

At sulk is tht finest fabric
women wear, hi appearance
brings atmosphere. Its beauty
•nd refinement create prettta)
but then ie one thing in tSltt
thst all women want.
Of course, si you know* in
silks there are many quahtiei.
Why this is true hardly hai a
place in thii article, but
always, in any selection of
•ilk, there ii one quality above
the rest.
Now, every merchant hai a
policy. Sabai have one. In
making selections from any
line of silks, manufactured any*
where, Sabai select the first
ciuality of each line only, and
there are some generations of
experience back of thii •election.
We said above: "There ii
one thing in silk that all
women want." That ii thii
first quality. Women have a
great regard for the superior
in silk. For this reason Sabai
carry pure silks only, and then
only the first grade in each
line.
A fact, somewhat surprising
in silks, ii that the actual
difference in prices between
superior quality and the gradea
below it are really very small.

I am a Hula dancer. Nightly I
wiggle and waggle at the Morpheum
Theatre, In my scanty costume I be*
guile the customers and while away
the time for the big butter and egg
men of the town. Whenever my Innovation appears, Ihe first fifteen
rows of the thirty In the show are
filled with Varsity studenls. So are
the last fifteen rows. The profs, have
the boxes.
Although I am a nice girl, I have
had a university education, In faot,
contrary to the usual oourse of events,
this varsity career furnished me with
a means of earning my living. I
went to all the Arts '80 dances and
so learned how to do the Hula, Shim*
my, Black-bottom, Sugarfoot-strut, and
what have you.
I'm used to this show business. For
the past twelve years I have been a
dancer of the Hawaiian type. Sometimes to show my versatility, I change
my act—I come on In a different skirt,
and as an encore I turn It Inside out.
About five years ago, when I wasn't
so popular, the managers Insisted that
I dance behind a wire screen. They
said they wanted to save their scenery. I struggled along during those
years as best I could until people
realized that I was Lon Ohaney's
double. I was then starred In my own
right with twenty-four other girls.
Now at the height of my success,
I receive many mash-notes, like this.
Dear Ermyntrude:
I thought I had seen everything In
this world until I saw you. Thank
heavens there is only one like you.
Ooodggravy, your face even haunts
me In my dreams, especially after a
meal of lobster and cheese.
Yours languishlngly,
Edmund.
Hero Is another,
Dear Ermyntrude:
You are the acme of all my hopes.
For years I have sought your type and
at last my search has been rewarded.
With a face like yours you can succeed anywhere, even ln Science. To
see It once 1» to remember it forever.
Yours lovingly,
Jasper Whiffle, Arts '30.
Once I became engaged to a Sophomore but I only got five bus tickets
for heart-balm. Jealous rivals say
that as a Hula dancer, I will come to
a bad end but they are all wrong as
1 am fltill going Htrong and drawing
a big snlnry, There aro lots of girls
that would like to get eli'ven dollars

When I get too old to go on dancing, I .shall marry a varsity grad and
we will run a roller-skate service station near the Oa blest.

Fool Frantic
Feature Editor
The Feature Editor, renowned
throughout the Dominion as a man
of great human sympathy, has won
the confidence of many University
students. Recently he has heard the
outpourings of many heart-troubled
seniors who have experienced the
pangs or being photographed for the
Annual.
The following two human documents
havo been chosen from a large number of similar confessions. The first
Is by a prominent university man and
the second by a fair on-od.
I met Joselyn by the Lily Pond and
showed her my Annual photo. "How
da you like It?" I asked eagerly.
"Lovely!" she exclaimed, "It's Just
like you. I recognised your funny
little nose at once." "Oh." I said
blankly, "You think It's like me?"
"Exactly," she responded, "So long,
Kid." She darted into the library,
and I turned across the Campus ex*
amlnlng the proof thoughtfully.
Thus I bumped Into Jim. "Gotcha
pltchure?" he asked. (He is a science
man,) I placed It in his hand and
and waited anxiously for his opinion.
"Now," he said slowly, "No good.
Lemme see—T'aln't fat enough, an'
the eyes are kinda big for you. The
hair's too fluffy nn—" "Thank you," I
said, snatching St from him, "You are
at least candid." I pushed angrily
past him, determined to show it to
Harriet.
I found her, roller skating. At
the sight of me she tried to hurry up
and sat down abruptly. I believe this
biased her criticism. "A wonderful
resemblance?" she began, when she
had stopped groaning, "Your double
chin came out beautifully, and that
little jagged scar on your neck exact I
If It only had a few freckles it would
be perfect. You really must let me
have one." She smiled sweetly and
limped away. I blinked, and stared
frantloly at the proof.
"'Smattcr Kid?" I looked up and
saw Estelle. This was the final test.
If she rejected It—. I handed it to
her In silence. "Um—er— it's quito
nice, dear," she said, adjusting her
glasses, but—ah— I don't like the way
you've done your hair." I glanced
over her shoulder, and moaned. She
was holding 11 upside down.
I think I'll get another one taken.
These Annual pictures are the bunk.
I'm through with giving my opinion
on other people's photos. What they
expect me to say beats mo anyway.
First there was Martha. I met her
In the corridor and she grabbed me
and suld. "What do you think of my
picture? HA for the Annual. Well,
I   looked   al   tlie   blamed   photo   and
1,'lisheil,
"dee, I think that's a peach of a
picture. It's Just exactly like you,
your usual expression nnd everything.
Oosh. you couldn't get a better one."
And then, Instead of smiling sweetly, she Just stuck up her nose and
said, "Oh, do you think so. I think
It's perfectly terrible."
Then she went, leaving me staring,
Well, that was bad enough, but
there was more yet. I made a mental
note of the event and decided to
profit by the experlenc. Consequently whon Doris came running up with
a photo in her hand, I determined to
try a different line.
"Give me your honest to goodness
opinion on my picture," she cooed,
thrusting the likeness under my nose.
I thought of my trouble with Martha.
"Groat scott," I ejaculated, "Isn't
lt ghastly? Is it really you? Of
course some people always make rotten photos. Er—what I mean to say
Is __ ,--
"Thank you," Interrupted Doris,
Icily, "I have been told that lt Is a
very good likeness, No doubt you
are trying to be funny, Thank you
for your kind opinion."
Gosh, just like that!
1 stood a long time staring after
lier. but sli.  never looked back.
Doggone It, I'm through.   Why the
dickens do they ask a fellow's opinion If Ihey only get offended at what
ever    you    say.      Doggone    It,    I'm
through with women.

Senior "A" Defeat
Huskies
(Continued from Page 1)
from centre. Butler duplicated the
performance a couple of seconds
later. The Huskies called time out
with Varsity leading iz-B. Westminster Blmply couldn't get going against
Varsity's impregnable Ave man defense.
On the resumption of play Varsity
again pressed hard but had bad luck
with their long shots. Ted MoBwen
was holding Crane absolutely helpless, The Y substituted 8hiles for
Crane but there was very little
change. Tanny Butler dribbled
through the whole Husky team to
shoot a pass out to Mayers who
scored another. Grant scored a
pretty one after Mayers had broken
up some nice Husky combination.
Huskies again took lime out with
score standing 16-8 against them,
Joe Kelllngton went to centra while
Lewis took Buck McDonald's place.
Weatmluster started a barrage ot ineffectual long shots but Grant closed
the bait with a nice long shot. Half
time score M-B Varsity,
Huskies forced the fight for a short
while after half time but made little
headway. Bhlles wis at oentre and
Crane at forward. Lewis got a trloky
shot from the oorner and got a big
hand from the gallery. Bhlles repeated the trick and Crane next got
a point on Henderson's foul. Bhlles
was getting the jump all the time
but oould make no headway against
McBwen's strenuous checking.
Butler got a rebound from Welly's
long shot. The Huskies continued
their long shooting but could not
score. Grant notched a circus shot
under the basket. Lewis notched
one point when Tanny put a stranglehold on him. The Varsity captain
scored again on a fast pass trom
Henhy. Mayers jumped into the
spotlight with a long shot from
centre which didn't even touch the
basket's rim. McEwen got another
circus shot at full speed under the
basket. Henderson scored Just before Buck McDonald was substituted
for Lewis. Bhlles and Butler scored
In quick succession after nice combination plays. Mayers scored a long
shot and Buck McDonald got one
under the basket. Grant scored his
last on a foul by Fred Lynch. Facing
defeat Huskies started playing rough.
Buck McDonald and Norm Crane
then scored a brace of tricky shots.
Huskies called time out with the
score 85*19. Honors were even in the
rest of the game Buck McDonald and
Lynch scoring for the Y and Mayers
getting a one hand shot and 2 froe
shots on a foul by Shiles.
Final score 89-23.

BIOLOGICAL DISCUSSION
CLUB
The last meeting of the Biological
Discussion Club was held at the
home of Vlvienne Hudson, 4864 12th
Ave. West, at 8 o'clock, Tuesday. February 21st. Harold McWilliams
«ave a paper on "Coloration in Animals."
Dr. Williams Speaks
on Science and Religion
"Some Contributions or Science to
Rel|gloui. Thought" was the subjeot
of an address to the 8. C. M. on Tuesday noon, by Dr. Williams, Professor
of Faleantology.
"I feel," he said, "that science has
Sdded a good deal to religious thought,
and has yet a good deal to contribute
If it is given the opportunity." He
showed how science penetrates all
our thoughts and how it has "dispel*
led the gloom of superstition, shed*
ding light on all our thought." "A
scientist," Dr. Williams went on,"
must see all sides of the question, sad
because of this his attitude is opposed lo dogma, if he finds reason for
changing his mind he must, In all
honesty, do so."
The speaker then quoted from Sir
Bertram Wlndell of Toronto University who holds that the theory of
evolution necessitates sn all wise and
all powerful creator. "Science la op*
tomlstlc," Dr. Williams went on, "for
II shows that we are advancing from
simple to complex, from lower to
higher."
In conclusion Dr. Williams declared
that the development of the spiritual
nature Is necessary to the progress
of the human race. "We have the
selecting of our own future," he said,
"and a sound mind and a sound body
are essential to progress but it Is that
division of the human race with the
greatest spiritual development that
will stand ahead."
Next Tuesday noon, Rev. R. Mc*
Greggor Fraser, B.A., B.D., will ad*
dress ihe S. C. M, in Ag. 100, on
"President tyasaryk and the Cseoh
Republic" This will be particularly
Interesting because of tho personal
touch which the Rev. Mr. Fraser can
bring to the subject. These Tuesday noon meetings are open to the
students as a whole.
The executive of the S. C. M. announce a Spring Camp to be held the
week after exams. Arrangements for
the xact time, the place and the
group leaders aro being made and
will be announced later. *
WOMEN WILL MOLD
DEBATE TRY-OUT
The try-outs for the Women's Inter-
colleglate debate with Washington,
will be held at noon on Tuesday, Feb.
28, in Arts 206. The date has been
changed by request of contestants.
Tho subject will be: "Resolved, that
American universities are turning out
too many people." A flve-m.nute
