Alberta Speakers
Will Debate Here
With U B C. Team
ANNUL MTER-COUEOMTE IEMTE
HUES FN IANIAH17
Hsrry Freeman and James Oibsou
will uphold the honor of U.B.C. when
they debate a team trom the University of Alberta at King Bclward High
School Auditorium on the evening of
Friday, January 17, at 8.80 p.m.
the subject, "Resolved that total
disarmament is essential for the attainment of world peace," is the same
as that for the debate between Douglas Maodonald and Earl Vance for
Varaity and a team from the University of Saskatchewan. The two debates, which form part of a program
arranged by the Western Canada De
, bating Union, will take place on the
same night, on the same subject, tho
one In Saskatoon, the other here.
Mr, H. Freeman has already made
tor himself a good name as a debater
after three years' Inter-colleglate debating tor Varsity—-first with Idaho,
then with Utah, and thia year with
Alberta. In 1028 he was president of
the Menorah Sooiety and he has debated for thst olub against the Seattle Menorah Society. As stiver medalist in the U.B.C. Oratorical Contest
8t '.7 snd as president ot the Debet-
ug Union/this year his record shows
that he la considered an excellent debater. He has a pleasing voice and an
easy but forceful style.
Mr. Jstnea Qlbsou, while new to debating In this university, has a record
of achievements behind him. In '27
be was a finalist in the Sun Oratorical
Contest; in IS he was a member of
Victoria College debating team; and
.^•**he has won both silver and a gold
medal as winner ot an essay contest
and a history examination. He also
holds a Canadian history scholarship.
His style Is heavy, his rebuttal good,
and his material always well handled.
Up to date the Debating Union has
received absolutely no Information
from the Alberta team but word Is
expected to arrive very shortly.
Mr. Freeman, as president of the
Union, issued the following statement: "In view of Council's recent decision with regard to inter-colleglate
debates, it Is imperative that we secure a record attendance. A team is
travelling from the University of Alberta to Vancouver. Council's demand
Is that the debate produce greater
financial returns than before, In order
to contribute to the huge cost of
arranging Inter-colleglate debates. Debating ln thla university is going to

New Literary Club
ReplacesW.L.S*
The Women's Literary Society is
no more. As announced last term this
organization has given way to the
"Scrap Book Club." While this club
Is being formed the oxecutive of the
old society is carrying on the work.
The duties of the club as to the
carrying out of women's inter-class
debates have been dropped with the
hope that the Debating Union will
carry on the work, It ls also anticipated thut there will be fewer speaker*
brought from town than formerly
while the members of the club will
consequently have a greater opportunity for expressing themselves during the meetings.
The program of the newly formed
society as outlined in the constitution
will be: first, impromptu speaking and
debating; second, reading of papers,
book reviews and plays and discussion of the same; third, other literary
pursuits. Membership, which will be
limited to thirty, will be granted to
applicants showing a keen interest in
the subjects above noted and promising to attend at least, two-thirds of
the total number of meetings. Applications for membership should be turned in to Isabel Boseoby, Arts Letter
Rack, before Tuesday noon, January
14. The list of successful applicants
will be posted on the notice board at
the women's end of the Arts Building
Tuesday afternoon and these members
will be expected to attend the first
meeting of the club which will be
held later in the week. At this meeting a new executive will be elected
to hold office until the end of this
term and definite future plans will
be considered.

Holding their annual conference,
titty members of the Student Christian
Movement met at the Y.W.C.A^camp
at Copper" Cove on JanuarsHf.'TTOu 4
t The conference commenced with an
"address by Prof. H. F. Angus. He described the outlook of the Chinese and
the Japanese as he had found it during his recent visit to the Orient; and
explained the techniquo and aims of
the Institute of Pacific Relations Conference.
The discussion periods were chiefly
of two kinds, the evening forums in
which all took part and the morning
study groups. There were two of the
latter. One group led by Rev. McOregor Fraser discussed the evolution of the Idea of the "Kingdom of
God," while the other with Rev. A. F.
Munro as leader considered two questions concerning Jesus: is He unique?
is He adequate to satisfy the needs
of modern life?
Two evening forums were held Mr.
Fraser led the llrst in a discussion of
the abandonment of self, while the
subject of the other led by Mr. Munro
was prayer. Ou Saturday afternoon
the relation between the scientific and
religious approaches to reality were
discussed.
Mildred Osterhout and Harry Hendry led morning devotional services.
Prominent ln recreational activities
was a paper chase. On this occasion,
Lindsay Black, abandoning his tutorial dignity for the roll of a hare,
lead the chase up a rocky steep. Late
lu the afternoon exhausted, betatter-
ed "hounds'' straggled into camp,
dragging the captured "hares."
Rev. McGregor Fraser, who has
been a friend of the Movement for
several years, la leaving Vancouver
to take up post-graduate studios at
Yale. The president gave him a small
token of the regard of the students,
expressing their gratitude for his
many acts of friendship and regret
at his departure. He left for the East
on Monday.
Players Proceed
To Try Out Cast
For Spring Play
HUE If USUI'S Ml IEMt.1
•mint HI HBBBSt
Tryouts for the Spring plsy were iu
progress on Wodneeday. The parta for
"Friend Hannah," the club's choioe
tor its next production, were keenly
contested, fuliy eleven "Hannahs" being hard at work.
"Friend Hannah" Is not of the type
heretofore chosen by the Players'
Club for Its spring production. It is
a costume play, dramatic and tragic,
unlike their usual run of light comedy.
The story is about a pretty Quaker
maiden, fair Hannah Llghtfoot, who
is married secretly to young King
George III. She is persuaded by the
ministers of the kingdom to give him
up for his country's good, snd after a
dramatic struggle with herself, consents. The last scene present, Hannah as an old woman, who sees her
lover once again but U not recognised
by him. The play presents great opportunities for the talents ln the
Players' Olub, with its skilful combination of delicate comedy, drama, and
pathos.
The Auditorium stage yesterday
was the scene ot a spirited contest
for parts in which tho sixty members
of the Club all took part in various
capacities. The play was divided into
several small parts, the most dramatic of which had been chosen for
"trying-out." In the Oreen Room a
motley crowd of Hannahs, Oeorge Ill's,
serving wenches, and Queen Dowagers consorted with serious . prime .
Ministers and post' boys, Interrupted
spasmodically in their contuaed conversation by a call-boy, announcing
the groups who were next to go on.
At five o'clock In the afternoon the
judges were still listening to Hannah and Oeorge at their tragic parting, and finding it difficult indeed to
discriminate between them, it la hoped that by next week the parts will
be finally decided upon and rehearsals commence.
At present those leading in the running are as follows;
Hannah—Miss Sheila Tlsdall, Miss
Eileen Griffin, and Miss Jean Salter. |
George—Messrs Lendrum, Evans,
Brock, and Coleman.
Hannah's Uncle Thomas, a rich
linen-draper from London Town—
Messrs Hammett, Gilbert nnd Woodward.
Hannah's Mo'her Miss Elizabeth
Magee, Miss Margaret Sheppard.
Hannah's buxom maid and companion, Betty—Miss Amie Ferguson, Miss
Dorothy Barrow, Miss Catherine Cotton.

Chemistry Society
An open meeting of the Chemistry
Society was held ln 8c. 300 on Wednesday, December 4, 1920, at 3:15. Dr.
Clark, head of the Department of
Chemistry gave an Interesting talk
on "Recent Applications of Chemistry in Medicine."
Dr, Clark pointed out that chemistry
ls applied to medicine chiefly In the
preparation of pure compounds to
nlevlate pain and cure disease; tho
Isolation, preparation and study of
pure principles of secretion, und n
complete HitalyslH of all body cells und
tissues, und of foods,
MORE WORK FOR THI PROFS.
Now that the annual Christmas "hex-hunt" aud "smelling
out" of the unworthy has been cor.sumated, the fortunate few
who have not received lettres de cachet are wondering how it
all happened.
The saddest part of it all is that the majority will never
discover how they lost marks. All their lives they must remain
in ignorance of the nature of their short-comings and be denied
the opportunity of soul searching and reformation. A few humane professors occasionally make oracular statements to favorite pupils but as even those utterances are open to several interpretations Ignorance remains prevalent.
This tragic state of affairs arises from the traditional refusal
of the pedagogical oligarchy to return corrected examination
papers to the examinees. Whether this reticence arises from tender consciences or tender hearts we do not know, but the fact
remains that unless the student ls enabled to see where he fell
down on the examination he receives no benefit from it. The Idea
ot a student benefitting from examinations may be novel but
should not be illogical.

NOPE 8PIUNQ8 ETERNAL	
This term's plans for the literary side of the work of the
Student Publications are ambitious. They call for a Literary
Supplement to be published about the middle of February, for
another Supplement to be contained in the "Totem," and for
literary features in the "Ubyssey" whenever possible. It is hoped
that the quality of the work ln the Literary Supplement will be
higher than ever before, that thero*will be contributions to the
"Totem" Supplement so it will not be necessary to use material
already published, and that the features in the "Ubyssey" will
appear oftener that they did last term.
Considerable interest was taken last fall in the Literary
Supplement, and there was not as much difficulty as usual In
getting contributions. May these manifestations of an Intellectual revival grow ln strength during the coming months! If,
added to this, our efforts to secure the practical support of certain student clubs and officials are successful, it may actually be
possible to realize the plans outlined above. The Interest and cooperation of the students is absolutely necessary if this Is to be
accomplished.

W L.8. PROVES A B.A.C.
Last year the Women's Literary Society showed what a
difference a vigorous executive can make to a nearly defunct
club by putting on one of the best programs of any organization
at the University. Hence the announcement in this issue that the
W. L. S. Is definitely deceased seems rather a tragic denouement
to its well-wishers.
However the gap left by the W. L. S. is not going to remain
altogether unfilled. The Society's executive is engaged in organizing a club, which is going to engage in literary pursuits according to its program. The plans for Informal debating and discussions of books and plays promise well. It is to be hoped that this
organization will prosper as it certainly ought to in our University. But we do suggest that "Scrap-book Club" is not a good
title as it will not convey to future freshettes the true alms and
objects of this new club.   _

Liquor-Containing Dorms
Padlocked to Students
Where to go when one's college
dormitory ts padlocked? This is the
poignant problem which {confronts
eighty students at the University of
Michigan, thuuks to an untimely raid
hy the local authorities, in the course
of which a quantity ot spirituous
liquors were found hidden ln the attic
of the dormitory,
The cry of protest which goes up as
h result of the remarkable punishment meted out by the college to the
offenders seems very well Justified.
Certainly not all those evicted could
have been Interested in the hidden
cache, hut the college has decided
that all shall share a similar fate.
Just at the time when the rugs have
bo n laid on the floor and the furniture has begun to assume a natural
ah* then does the Iron hand nf the
law drive the exiles out Into the
world to seek a new lodging. While
the affair makes admirable copy for
metropolitan newspapers and will
amuse countless burghers In numerous cities, the students involved must
have sentiments much akin to those
ot thu bunlsheil Huguenots and the
Moors of Spain.
If the Angers or guilt can be pointed at only a few of the exiles it is
hard to discover the point or exacting
such a harsh penalty) If, on the other
hand, the whole group are guilty, it
seems thoughtless of the college au
thoritles to leave eighty landlords of
the peaceful city of Ann Arbor to the
mercy of such Bachanallan roomers.

IfslrittrtUma
On Tuesday the Olympian seniors
will muster amid pomp nnd ceremony
to decide upon their gift to posterity.
At least, they will discuss the possibility of a Kltt and the plea will be
made for someone to think of an appropriate present.
OwIiik to a superabundance of
stone seats on tlie campus, Inscribed
as presented by '29, 28, etc., President
Hill Kobbtns has Issued un Imperial
trade to the affect that anyone huk-
KestinK such a gift will he expelled
from the meetliiK and forbidden to
wear a gown for a week,
This is a hard time of the year for
them there seniors. Ruffled brows and
distracted stares bear witness to tbe
Inner strife that is fermenting- within their august cranlums. They are
thinking. Or rather they think tbey
are thinking. Or at least I think they
think they are thinking .... Well
anyway it is about time they did.
One of the Pub. poets has taken this
soul striving as the subject for an
epochal epic beginning as follows:
8EAT8 OP THE MIGHTY
Begowned In sombre gowns
And muttering mutters maledictory
Their eyebrows wreathed in frowns
They strive to find a valedictory.
And after months of strain
(These genius's defy defeat)
Some great Inventor's brain
Conceives a plan—a granite seat.
Loud ring the crieB of glee
The weary ones are satisfied
"A stone seat let it be."
At once the plan ls ratified.
And some day all these gifts
Wilt have a use (we dldh't plan lt)
The ovor-crowded studes (In shifts)
Will listen carefully to the professors who give them lectures (the university  being greatly  increased  and
all available space in the building being taken up) while Boated painfully
on seats of granite.
What is really needed Is a Class
Valedlctory-glft-thinker. ln the first
year the whole class should be given
an intelligence test und the brainiest
and strongest (lest he should die of
the strain) be appointed to think of a
suitable gift. He would then have
four years in which to chum bis intellect In pursuit of a valid valediction
and who knows but what he might
find one.

Yale Revealed as All Wet
By McGiil Grad.
"What Yale, according to the traditional old song, lacks in women, it
makes up in wine and song," according to T. H. Harris, M.A., McGiil '28,
B.C.L. '29, who is now in the graduate
school of Yale University.
"The eighteenth amendment is not
taken very seriously in the State of
Connecticut." Harris told the McQill
Dally last night. "There is a plentiful
supply ot spirits of all varieties and
of varying qualities and prices. I do
not advise immigrants or transient
aliens to tackle the |2.50 kinds; they
usually have a shot of ether iu them
and are likely to lay one out without
notice."
"tt Is perhaps well to become accustomed to the fact that six dollars the
U. S. pint (18 fluid oz.) must be paid
for really good rye. This latter product Is madeln-Canada. unadulterated,

and properly packed In corrugated

"Except during the past week,
which was fraternity rushing week,
there havo been no particularly collegiate outbursts af Yale this year,
During the past week, however, n
large part of the undergraduate body
has been parading around the campus by night, well oiled, as thoy say
ln those parts, singing songs that
might offend tender McOlll ears and
carrying lamps iu search ot appropriate pledgers.''
Handicapped Hoopsters
Defeat Westminster
Undaunted by the weeping and
wailing of league officials on the interesting subject of mid-season graduates, the post-Christmas edition of
Varsity's Senior "A" basketball team
came from behind to defeat Westminster "Y" in a league fixture Tuos
day night at V.A.C. gym.
The game was not particularly faat
and except tor the brilliant finish waa
devoid of any spectacular playing. The
Westminster boys took an early lead
but a basket by Henderson and a
basket and foul shot by McKwon
evened matters. The "Y" again went
ahead and at half-time held a :i point
advantage, 8-6.
Play was fuster lu the second frHiiw
wilh both teams scoring about equally.
Varsity's hopes faded when with but
two minutes of piny remaining, McDonald found the basket to glv. the
Westminster teum a four point lead.
For the rest of the game thu students dominated the play: Nicholson
scored on u pretty shot from clos. in
and Doug. Mclntyre made tho most
of a perfect play from the tip-off to
tie the score. With but a few seconds
to go Tommy Berto decided the Issue
with a beautiful shot from centro
floor.
The Varaity squad showed up well
tn spite of the heavy losses caused
by the Christmas exams aud with a
reasonable amount of coaching should
do well in the Vancouver and District
league. With Henderson and Berto to
bolster up the team there ts no reason
to fear a repetition of the dlsasteroua
half-season that occured last year.
Varaity: Mclntyre (2); Henderson
(4); Berto (2); McEwen (8); Chapman, Lee (1); Nicholson (2); Shaw
and Root.
OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE
TRAIN STUDENT AVIATORS
LONDON. (U.P.)—While atudenta
ln American universities are spending their spare hours playing or
"talking" football, Oxford and Cambridge students are making aviation
their favorite sport.
The university authorities and the
British air ministry are fostering the
students' desire to earn "wings." The
result of their encouragement can be
seen in the fact that sixty-seven members of the Cambridge university
squadron of seventy-five were flying
solo at the end of the summer course.
At both schools a large staff of instructors ts maintained, composed
only of Royal Air Force officers. The
air ministry has furnished the universities with sufficient equipment to ensure thorough training in practically
all branches of aviation.
Cambridge has a hangar, an engine
shop, an aviation library and a lecture
room. A Royal Air Force fighting
plane ls kept in the hangar for ground
instruction purposes. In the engine
shop are several aero engines and
part of a Lynx-Avro airplane on which
propellor swinging and engine starting are practised.
The Cambridge squud does its actual Hying during the school year at
Duxford airdrome. During the summer
vacation, the entire squad goes to Old
Saruni, the Royal Air Force station on
Salisbury  plain.
Oxford has four Lynx Avros and
two Bristol fighting planes. The students do their actual flying at Man-
8ton airdrome, where they are honorary members of tho officer's moss,

Student Strikers Barricade
And Dafy Police
Buenos Aires, Dec. 30.—A hungry
but enthusiastic band of 300 university law students stuck determinedly
to thetr posts Inside the law building
here today, barricaded against police
who might attempt to end their protest strike.
The students seized the building
Saturday in protest against what, they
classed as the "Iron-handed" discipline of Dr. Juan P. Ramos, dean of
the school. They refused to come out
and kept a watchful guard to prevent
police from coming ln.
The police were planning to starve
the strikers into submission. A close
patrol of officers was maintained. The
students had no way of replenishing
their food supply. They restated, how*
ever, that they would not leave the
building until Dr. Ramos was dismissed.
The students seized the law building after a protest meeting at which
they "dismissed'' the dean, his secretary and most of the faculty on
charg.8 that their recent election was
"irregular." They elected successors
before police arrived to disperse them.
TORONTONIANS SUPPORT
LECTURE-ROOM SMOKING
Toronto, Jan. 3.—"Smoking helps
enormously in creating a friendly atmosphere," exclaimed one co-ed when
asked about the question ot smoking
In groups and lectures, "and I'm all
for the profs who allow lt In discussion groups."
"It makes one appear nonchalant
when one ls trying to concoct something French," was the opinion voiced
by Ruth Hnldenby. II U.C.
"1 want everyone to feel at home
when they come for French conversation,'' said Monsieur de Champ,
"and a cigarette «eems to help to get
over embarrassment." "But don't, you
think    smoking    befogs    the    brain?"
suggested   "The   Varsity. Phut  may
be," Monsieur de Champ answered,
"but I know some professors whose
minds don't get de-fogged until they
have a pipe in their mouths."
Professor Fay would not lecture at
ull in a room where students were
smoking, but would not object at all
if a student smoked when he came to
him for a private talk.

entirely different display forcing Renfrew to work hard for their 2-0 victory.
Westminster Royals, runners-up for
league honors, likewise easily vanquished Vuridty in their initial encounter, obtaining a 7-0 count. Their
second match produced some flue
football, und the Royals were well extended to obtain a .1-0 count,
Although this year's bouncing program has caused a slight gap In the
Junior ranks a strong team will be
fielded this Saturday. The team will
be chosen from the following: Saunders, Wiles, C. Smith, Ralberaberg,
Fraser, King, J. Smith, Cox, Mundie,
Dickson, White, McKellar, Verdlel.
