Modern Women Tie
Say Judges
Taking the negative of tho resolution "That,women of the twentieth
century are inferior to women of ths
nineteenth century," Arts '38 success*
fully defended modern woman In a do*
bate with Arts '81 on Tuesday noon.
A. Dick and M. Owen of the Fresh*
man class obtained a two to one decision over E. stenner, and F, Jakeway ot Arts '88. Charles Brasier, Fred
Stone add Bernard Tobln were the
Judges of this lnter-class debate,
whioh, fag held before a largo student audienoe. ,
Stenner. opined the debate with a
lively attaok on the modern woman.
He expreteed hit opinion that the
higher education of women is a waste
of time. While willing enough to work,
they still refute logical proceedings
and Jump at conclusions. In elaborating his point, Stenner affirmed that
their ute of cosmetics and cigarettes, their mode ot dress, and dislike
ot exercise all bear out his point-
that the women tit the 30th century
have not used their freedom to advantage and are interior to their
grandmothers in every respect      a
The flrst negative speaker wag M,
pick who proceeded at Once to refute
hit opponent's statements. He pointed
out that education Is more universally
advanced than ever before, especially
for women. Moreover, women of the
li)th century smoked, although not to
the extent practised today. Nevertheless, this fault, If fault lt is, is over-
Weighed by thetr increased effllciency
due to better education, more active
and varied sports, and the development of independence and a wider
view point. There are today a greater
number of women authors and critics
than ever before. And as an example
of Increased poise and ability, Dick
remarked on women's great work
In the World War as contrasted with
the 10th century woman's shrinking
from contact with war's harsh realty.
There is a marked advance In the
thought and activity of women.
Jakeway, second member of the
affirmative, in turn attempted rebuttal of the points made by Dick. It
was Arts '88's opinion that the move
was unfortunate for their chances of
winning the debate, Jakeway's substitution of wit tor logical argument failed to bring out his point
that women of the 19th century were
more cultured and bettor home-makers
than women of today.
The negative side then wound up
their argument in defense of the modern girl. Owen said: "Flappers are
in the minority. It is a mistake to
classify all modern women as such,
The mere u.e of tobacco and cosmetics does not detract from her advantage over her mother and grandmother. She has freedom, they had not.
They were tied down to house-keeping; modern conveniences leave her
free to educate herself widely. Also
since the government is an Institution
for tho protection of our homes, it Is
only Just that women, the real home-
makers, should have a voice in the
making ot our laws." In education, In
business, in wisdom, and in health the
modern woman was declared superior
to the woman of the 10th century.

Poetry of Wolfe
Topic at Club
"Humbert Wolfe" was the subject
of the paper read by Roy Danielle to
the Letters Club when lt met at the
home of Mrs. Sedgewick on Tuesday
Following Wolfe's method ln "Monologues and Dialogues," Mr. Dantells'
paper was in the form of a conversation between himself and two friends.
Oeorge has no very great opinion ot
the poet. "This man Wolfe," he said,
"Is a dreadful example of what may
happen to a person who leaves his
own sphere ln life." Mr. Wolfe la a
secretary In the Department of Labor
at WhitehaU and has proved himself
something of an expert.
Percy is more favorable. "Uneven*
nets ot quality Is not a Crime and no
poet should bo Judged on his successful work. Then hie shifting of Images,
as you term It oan bo very beautiful.
Here la a verse now:
The sea-gull scrawls across the
The vivid patterns of her cry,
And,    dipping    swiftly,    almost
An asure tracery of leaves.'"
Percy furthermore believed that
there Is a fooling ot newness about
Wolfe's verse and his reactions are
those of this age rather than Of the
last. Verse, he said, haa "one Impales,
If a million results of that impulse,
and the impulse is to smash one more
fragment of sbapolftsanees Into shape,
one shard of ugliness into limited
Replying to some technical criticism, Oeorge asks, "What It Wolfe's
rhymes are Imperfect, what if he does
mako spontaneous use of aseonaiteoT
.... I submit that the tree tost of a
technique is its total effect, and Wolfe
by common consent must bo given
credit tor creating forms with unusual pleasantness, even as pure sound
.... you cannot mistake a poem of
his for someone else's, nor fall to feel
yourself transported Into his defllnlte,
unified world whenever you pick up a
book of his."

Washington, D.C., Jan. I7.-Collegt-

dents are often the result of a clash
between two of the three dominant
culture streams in America, Dr. Mar*
tin H. Biekmah of Chicago, a member
Of the comlttees on Social Analysis of
Oollege Communities, told the American Sociological society in session
here recently.
The three streams are the Puritan,
originating In New England, the Tide*
water, beglnlng in the South, and the
Continental, of more recent origin in
urban centers.
Both the Puritan and the Tide-water
cultures are characterised *>y a-.deep*

Yale, Hamilton, Oberiin, Depauw, Illinois College and Orlnnell wore left
The Tidewater Influence Was felt
strongly in William and Mary, Virgin-
la, Davidson, Maryvtlle, Kentucky
Wesleyan, Vanderbilt, and others.
These two cultural streams were
largely rural and Protestant ln religious coloring while the Continental
culture, which began to be felt about
1830, was centered in the cities and
was heavily Catholic. Fordham, Villa
Nova, Notre Dame, Loyola, Marquette
and Cretghton are Institutions reflecting this influence.
"The evidence( of recent surveys)
seemed to show that students from
the Puritan cultural Influence could
mingle fairly easily with students
from the Tidewater cultural Influence," Dr. Hickman said.
"The sharper cultural elashee were
evident in colleges where youths from
Immigrant and Catholic backgrounds
ventured to go to colleges In which
the older cultural streams were dominant," he continued.
Although »fob»Wy more than half
of America's colleges have developed
under the Influence of the two older
streams, the nation has been moving
toward the dominance ox urban life

Bernard Shaw, were reviewed by Miaa
Kathleen Butter and Miss laabel Dee
at a meeting of the Scrap Book Club
Wednesday noon, In Arts 106.
Miss Butler explained that "John
Bull's Other Island" is a political play,
expressing the political situation In
Ireland in 1904. The attitudes of England towards Ireland, and of Ireland
towards Englnad, were typified by tke
' "'••rent characters, sho said.
"In 'Man and BupermanVStatad Miss
Dee, "George Bernard Shaw has expressed his views concerning society.
'*■» uses the stage merely as a pulpit
and so we get long speeches from the
characters, whioh state his opinions.
The action is retarded greatly by theae
speeches, ahd in this play, while It has
been *aM that 8haw has fumbled
around for a conclusion, yet tbe fact
In that there Is no conclusion to some
of our present-day social problems."
The reading of "Spreading the
News" was postponed until the next
areariag, because of lack df tune.

For the past seven years, since

There has appeared in oar midst
g new organisation known aa tha
"international Relations Club,"
At first thla Club appear* to be one
ef those nutnetoot societies ea this
continent, made up of old ladies ot
both setae and various aget, who
spread bnckettult ef sloppy sentimentality on theoretical conceptions ot
world peace, disarmament, the brotherhood of man, peace at any price,
and ee en.
On the other hand, thle new olnb
may be oompoeed ef practical hard*
headed people who are not afraid of
facte ae thoy stand, and who will not
hesitate to consider International matters without too muoh theorising—
that curse of all universities.
In short, Will they flt facts to conform to abstract mid aeatimental
theories or will they form theories
oily after they have sanely considered all available facts?
We hope that the new olub will
enable students to discuss interna*
tlonal stairs in a practical statesman*
like manner.
Bet we are afraid.
The atudent body ot this University
would do well to sit up one day and
count Its many blessings.
First, the Unlverttty Is actually at
Point Ofay, the dream of those early
atudenta Who spent their college' llfo
in a small clutter of wooden shacks
at Fairview. Those eld timers, never-
theieaa, hid the ability to rise above
their dismal surroundingi and lay tht
foundation of our present Institutions,
the clubs, the athletic teams, student
government, tho emblems, yells and
songs—in short, everything that gives
individuality to student lite here.
Those predecessors of ours certainly had visions ot the time whin the
old Fairview shacks would be left
behind. By boundless enthusiasm and
energy they induced the government
and people ot thle province to spend
enormous sums of money to erect
handsome university buildings on one
world.^Ao? ttie present sOmnlleflt Btu-
In scholastic standing, the U.B.C.
students have alio much ot which
to be thankful. While the University
occupied the Fairview shacks, the
governing powers built up a faculty
of outstanding men before investing
in buildings. As a result, U.B.C. graduates are now occupylug responsible
positions in many of the leading colleges ot Canada and the United
States and have established an enviable record for U.B.C. scholarship.
In athletics, the University of British Columbia again ha? something of
which to be proud, thauku to the
efforts of those pioneer students. Instead of restricting athletics to one
victorious super-team—while the rest
of the students attend tn order to
cheer ln unison for their aide at the
command ot a yell leader—-the University . Is engaged In all sorts of
sport, wjth a remarkably. large per*
cental* bt students Tegtflariy playing
some sort of game. Although tke latter
course Ie aot aa opootaoatar as the
former, It is something ter which to
he thahkhil—.ven If Varsity is frequently the losing side.
Recently, too, a small group -of earnest University students have secured
a respectable gymnasium far the col*
lege. ITflanneiet this project the students must be congratulated, as their
action would be extremely creditable
to any university on the continent.
It Is true that the University ot B.C.
is handicapped in many wayo, sucb as
by geographlca! Isolation from other
colleges and the lack of wealthy supporters, but Its success, nevertheless,
Is assured if the present students can
regain tke enthusiasm and spirit of
self-sacrifice of their predecessors at

(PIP) —Mil reatrietlona regarding
shioking on the camput were removed
at a regular meeting of the associated
students held today. Members of both
sexes will hereafter be allowed to
sfiwhe anywhere eh y the campus
groundi at any time of day or night
without molestation.
Aa the students hold no Jurisdiction over the Interiors of the university buildings, they were unable to extend the new privilege indoors.' Such
privilege remains at the discretion of
Individual faculty members affected.
The reform wae the result ot an
investigation conducted last semester
by a committee of faoulty members
and students to suggest improvements
ln existing traditions. Other changes
effected were that freshmen are to
bave the privilege of "queening" any
place on the campus except In the
library, and that residence, rather
than number of units accumulated
should determine which men were
eligible to wear cords, The strong
sophomore bloc defeated measures
which would have allowed the freshman to wear trousers of any material
but corduroys, and io use the from
steps of Morrill hall.
Students going to the University
of Mexico summer school will find
that lt is directed in a way similar
to that of the United States. They
may enter as graduate students or
transfer directly.
The courses are given  during a
Sriod ot six weeks. Classes aro held
im Monday to Friday, for tho most
part in tho mornings, afternoons being left tree tor student excursions.
Tuition Is $80 regardless of courses
or the number of hours taken by the
student, and there Is a social fee of
three dollars.
Tbe students are divided Into three
groups, beginning, intermediate nnd
advanced, on the baala of their knowledge of Spanish determined by credentials or examination,
As the object of the summer uoursos
Is to offer to foreigners an opportunity to study the language, history, art
and social conditions of Mexico, there
are asany excursions to Interesting
centers of tho country. Pyramids, comparable to thoee of the ancient Rgyp-
tlons, exist within an hour's ride of
Mexico City. Tbelr works ot Mayan
art go back to the beginning ot the
Chrtatlan era.
This summer sohool offers the rare
opportunity of coming In contact wtth

The ponderous Firemen will furnish
the opposition when the fighting Varsity Soccerites swing into aotlon a-
Sain at the Renfrew Park grounds, The
itudents have been in regular training despite their Inactivity and intend
to make a desperate drive for league
honors. The team now stands fourth
In the standing but has a game in
hand over two of the upper squads.
Another win will probably entrench
the Oold aad Blue In second place
and with this in mind the round ball
chasers have been practising every
day this week.
During the vaoatlon the olub executive did a flne stroke of business in
securing the transfer ot Bb. Crute
trom North Shore. Crute Is a veteran
Varaity star and a lite member of the
U.B.C. club. Several changes will be
made trom the _pre*Ctar!stmas team.
The absence of Stafford loaves a big
hole at left baok but after some
thought it has been decided that Chalmers, formerly a forward, will partner
Wild Man Roberts. The halves will remain as usual although more smart
work has resulted in the signing of
another veteran, Lea. Buokley, a half.
Crute, the new acquisition, will lead
the forwards and is evpeoted to supply the necessary nunch to tbe line.
Latta comes in at inside left to partner the diminutive Cooke. The college
men will line up as follows: MoOreg*
or, Roberts, Chalmers, Wright (H.),
Phillips, Hyndman, Wright (tt), Partridge, Crute, Latta, and Cooke.
In a well fought return game with
the Air Force at the gym Monday,

Next Monday, February 8, the "B"
team plays Shaughnesty at the gym.
A meeting of the Club is to be held
Tuesday, February 4, to consider
plans for the annual tournament open
to all members ot the University. Mr.
T. C. Holmes has announced that, if
the members ate agreeable, a dance
Will also be held after the tournament, this will bo the first dance tho
Badminton olub has ever sponsored.
Alt members are urged to turn out
for discussion on Tuesday.
The first mitt clash ot the term
will convene at the Oym. Friday evening when Varsity pugilists take on the
