STAVING off a desperate rally in
the second half, Varsity senior
ruggers downed Ex-Tech 16-11
to retain their lead in the Miller
Cup race. Saturday. Lacking two of
their leading forwards due to injuries,
the collegians piled up a 12*0 advantage in the flrst session but wilted badly in the second, allowing the East-
enders to come within four points of
The Blue and Gold was in brilliant
mood when the gome started and had
things all Its own way. The back
field played faultless rugby, handling
the greasy ball without a tumble. The
forwards got the ball out of the scrum
often enough to keep Varsity on the
attack for the whole peroid. Ex-
Techs fought hard but displayed a
clumsiness which stood in sharp contrast to their form In the next session.
Bobby Gaul started the day's work
for the score-keepers when he ran 30
yards, dodging divers Greenshirts
to score the flrst try. The U. B. C.
threes were staging rush after rush
but heavy tackling by Ex-Tech spoiled
most efforts.
Tha next scoring movement was
started by Ellis, who turned in his best
?ame of the season. The five-eighths
roke through the opposing three-
line, passed to Martin who handed the
oval to Estabrook to place over the
line.   Again the try was not improved.
Phil Barratt did some fast travelling
when he ran diagonally right across
the field, and passed to Gaul who was
hurled out five yards from the line.
The mantle of Bud Murray rested on
the shoulders of Phil Barratt for one
game at least, when the red-headed
three-quarter scored six points on
kicks and narrowly missed adding six more. The first of these
came when he hoisted the ball over
the posts on a penalty.
Estabrook seized a chance offered
by an Ex-Tech miskick, scooping the
ball off the ground at full speed, and
slipping it to Gaul after drawing the
fullback. Phil Barratt's kick sailed
directly over the top of the It ft hand
post and the try was declined unconverted.
MacConnachie came into the limelight by trying a tricky pass, which
was so clever that it deceived everyone, even himself,
Phil Barratt's drop kick from thirty yards out deserved better luck when
it hit the post and bounced back.
Mercer and Gaul pulled a criss-cross
run which got to within three yards
of the line.
Ex-Tech began the second canto in
championship style. The Green and
Gold squad tackled hard and was always on the ball. Th. threes handled
one hundred per cent better than in
tbe first half. Varsity on the other
hand appeared to have lost all its pep.
The collegians fought desperetely, but
fumbled continually.

I scheduled time showed that the  Arts

of those who gathered at  the  Winter

The party started slowly, much to
the agitation of Mr. Bromiley, who
was in charge of the affair, hut when
the vurioua athletic contests had been
decided, students began to roll up
from all points of the compass. English rugby enthusiasts from Brockton Point arrived to celebrate their
victory. Soccermen from Powell Street
came to talk about their referee. Disappointed Canadian football patrons
journeyed from Athletic Park to forget their misfortunes in the wild eaca-
phony of the "St. Louis Blues."
The "British Columbians" provided
the inspiration for the dancers and
appeared more stylish than when performing at the Senior barn dance. Refreshments appeared and disappeared

waltzes with cut-ins made the finish

A well-planned attack was made
on Friday night by tbe Uppor Floor
men of the Anglican College upon the
den teens of the Lower Floor. At 2.HO
a.m. the invaders crept down to the
lower hall and took pre-arranged positions at the doors of their victims.
At the zero hour three taps sounded

Each attacker threw open a door,
rushed to a bed, grabbed bedclothes,
ejected water Into the sleeper's face
and departed  with  the hedclothe*..
Closely pursued, the rnldinir party
retired to the upper floor, leaving
strategically-placed chairs to protect
the retreat, and securing themselves
behind locked doors.
Interviewed by the "Ubyssey" regarding the prospect of future developments, an Upper Floor man expressed confidence in the ability of

have position, gravitation and organization in our favor," he declared,
'and so we should worry!"

Soccer Team
Outplayed By
This is the talc of a team that
didn't got a break: of how a game
but pitifully light Varsity Senior
Soccer team outplayed the massive
Firemen in all departments except
shooting, and yet hud to take a 4-1
defeat at Powell Street grounds
Saturday. To the average eye the
large score would suggest an infiinte
superiority, but on the contrary, it
was the students who were superior
without having a single break all the
The first disaster befell Varsity after five minutes of even play when a
ground shot struck a rut and bounced
over the prostrate Varsity keeper for
the first score. Soon afterwards a
black shirted winger got away to re-,
gister the second with a clever shot
from a difficult angle. All this time
Varsity has quite as much of the play,
and now Costain, Cox and Bunny
Wright all figured in a glorious movement which culminated In the diminutive centre reducing the deficit. Five
minutes before half time, another misfortune occurred when Firemen notched a third counter from what appeared to most of the crowd to be an
offside position.
When the teams changed over the
collegians played like champions and
for most of the half the Hook and
Ladder men were penned in their own
penalty area. Todd, Costain and
Cook all tried their luck, striking
the bar or skimming it. Costain
was badly fouled on the edge of the
area when three opponents hit him
simultaniously but he continued and
the free kick was saved. Kozoolin
was the next victim of rough play,
and he was carried to the sidelines
with a twisted knee. Varsity went to
the attack and although their shots
were close, Dame Fortune was stingy
and the boys could not score. All
throughout the period the Varsity
men played inspired football yet ten
minutes from the end a crowning
chunk of bad luck finished the scor-

Dollar for dollar co-operation mooted
by the Government
At a special meeting of the Alma Mater Society held Friday, October
24, the student body sanctioned the proposal that a levy of five dollars on
all students shall be collected along with the Spring term fees.
Inaccurate knowledge as to the number present left indecision as to
the validity of the motion, but a further check on attendance revealed that
u quorum wus present.
The money collected by the compulsory levy will be used to construct
the first unit of a future stadium worthy of the name of the University.
Charlie Schults, Men's Athletic
Pres, pointed out that U. B. C. is at
a great disadvantage through the lack
of a Btadium, not only because games
cannot be held on the campus, but
also because Varrsity can only collect
one third of the gate receipts of any
game held at the athletic parks in
the City. As a result U. B. C. is unable to finance many athletic series,
because of inability to make a guarantee.
A motion made by Allan Todd, advocating the ballot system of voting
on the question, was dismissed as out
of order.
E. King emphasized the fact that
the time was not yet ripe for the
building of a stadium on tbe campus
and that with the amount that could
be raised no construction could be
built worthy of the name of stadium.
The word "compulsory" was objected by C. Ft. Harwood. It was
moved by Maurice DesBrisay that any
student who submitted to Council a
written application for exemption
from this levy might receive the same
if the president of Council considered
the reasons offered sufficient to justify such exemption. This motion was
defeated, however.
Don Hutchison explained that a
delegation consisting of himself and
Schultz Interviewed tne minister of
public works, and placed before him
the offer of the Alma Mater Society
to provide $16,000 toward the project. Mr. Lougheed assured tho delegation that the government would appropriate an equal amount from the
funds for unemployment relief now
in the hands of the government.
At   midnight  Council  was  still  in
session and there were no announcements  of  importance to be  made.
Dean Buchanan has announced that
mid  term   examinations    will    begin
within the next week or ten days.

Seniors dabbled in rural festivities,
partook of agricultural repasts and
danced to queer-sounding songs at
the first barn dnnce and class party
of the year held in the renovated gymnasium, Friday night.
Agrarian costumes were the mode
for the evening and the most dignified of upperclassmen wore dingy
overalls and flapping straw bats.
Some of the participants arrived in
a dilapidated cart drawn by "the old
gray mare," all of which added to the
gaiety of the night.
Jack Emerson and his orchestra
clad in ancient garments redolent of
the farm played appropriate music
and old fashioned songs like"Turkey-
in-the-Straw." The music held forth
from a farm wagon decorated with
the odd spray of wheat and straw.
Lunches were served in boxes and
the punch was poured from genuine-
looking barrels. During the "hash-
hiking" interval a battle royal took
place for the ice-cream, in which the
young farm bloods struggled on the
dance floor to gain the frozen sweet
for their "draws."
Patrons for the affair were, Dr.
and Mrs. Sage, Dean and Mrs. Buchanan, Dean Bollert and Prof. A. C.

Hardy Emblem
Lost ByU.B.C.
WEAKENED by the loss of four
regular men, the U. B. C. Canadian rugby team went down
lighting before the onslaught of the
Saskatchewan squad on Saturday. 18-
8 was the score run up by tho victorious Green and White against the
coast visitors.
Varsity opened the game in promising style and made the flrst points
when Latta sent a drop kick between the posts. Four disasters
turned the tables early in the battle.
Latta and Dirom being eliminated
from the backfleld and Cliff and
Winters from the famous stone wall.
Dempster, skilled University of
Saskatchewan punter, proved invaluable to his team. Eleven points were
scored for the Green and White by
three place kicks and two deadline
punts, and the rest of the score was
due to U. B. C. fumbles.
A spectacular run was made by
Clarence Cosh, Saskatchewan Snap,
us he scooped up a loose ball and
dashed thirty yards for a touchdown in
the third quarter. The crowd waa on
its toes as it watched this player make
for the U. B. C. line, and wildly cheered
as tie plunged over,
Staged at Cairns Park in Saskatoon, the game gave the Western
Canadian Intercollegiate Championship and (with it) the Hardy Cup to
the University of Saskatchewan. Both
were taken from U. B. C, which decisively won them last fall.
Dr. Burke, head Varsity coach, believes that it will be several weeks
before Dirom will be back in the
game. A tendon was pulled in his
shoulder. The rest of the team
should bo in condition to meet Westminster on Saturday.
The line-ups were:

The second of the series of weekly
noon hour talks on choosing a profession will be given on Tuesday, October
28, at 12.25, in Ap. Sc. 102.
These talks which are given by
various members of the Faculty of
Applied Science and by outside professional men, are intended to assist
the student to make an intelligent
selection of a course that will fit him
for a career suited to his particular
tastes and aptitudes. They are primarily for Freshmen who are considering whether to enter Applied
Science or not and for Applied Science
students who are endeavouring to decide which course to select for their
final years,—but any student is welcome.
The second talk also will be by
Dean Brock on the choice of a profession. It will deal with the fundamental factors that should be considered and upon which the choice
should be made. This will be followed
by talks on the training in Applied
Science and the occupations for
which such a training is especially
suitable and by talks on individual
professions, tbe nature of the work,
the special qualities necessary for
success and the life in this profession.

If its purpose had not been so serious. Friday's Alms Mater meeting
might be branded as a somewhat ridiculous performance. At one point it
waa found that those voting didn't know the sub-question at Issue. Judging
by the way the meeting was conducted, it wouldn't do the Council any harm
to delve further into the mysteries of parliamentary procedure before it attempts to hold another one.
The most unsatisfactory feature was the inability of one speaker to
bring up the queation of secret balloting. He made several efforts, but was
ruled out of order. The President acted as he thought proper, but some way
should certainly have been found at a democratic gathering, for this speaker
to get an expression of student opinion on his idea. Could he not have
moved that consideration of the motion before the meeting be suspended
in order that a vote by ballot be taken?
The "Ubyssey," however, fails to see mitbclent reason for the adoption of this secret ballot suggestion. There is no need for It In the ordinary
affairs of the Alma Mater Society. In more important business matters
the Council may be compared to a Directorate and the students to shareholders,
who meet as an incorporated body to discuss extraordinary resolutions, according to clause 22 of the "Societies Act."
If the secret ballot were used, less attention would be paid to the issues,
and It would be difficult to get enough votes cast. The present general meetings have the interest of those tn attendance, the matters in question are
discussed, pro and con, and no self-respecting student should find himself
without an opinion to express by voting one way or another. The discontent
with Friday's affair lies in the fact that it acquired an undemocratic flavor
because a little too much red tape was unwound in a rather confused way.
We are informed that pledges are being signed by some disgruntled
persons saying they will not subscribe to the decision of the Alma Mater
meeting unless the whole matter is re-opened and settled by ballot. Since
these students did not have enough interest to attend the meeting, or
enough courage to vote according to their convictions, they have no business
trying to interfere now. The necessary number of A.M.S. members was
preaent at the meeting, and voted allmost unanimously in favor of a general;
levy to raise $10,000 for stadium facilities. It was a foreslghted and well,
lustifled action. !
Editor, "Ubyssey,"
As an alternative proposal to a compulsory contribution of $5.00 from all
members of the Alma Mater Society,
I suggest the stadium project be financed in the same manner as the
"gym." The interest on a loan of
$15,000 ot 0a, amounting to $900
shoud be largely, if not entirely balanced by gate receipts. Even in the
case of the A.M.S. having to pay this
sum, it would amount to only $.60 per
student. A 15 year loan paid off
at the rate of $1,000 per annum,
would mean another $.50. Should it
be necessary to repay the principal
within a shorter perold, say 7 years,
the maximum annual payment per
student would be $1.50, decreasing
each year as the interest on a smaller
principal decreased. This would be
the absolute maximum, and with gate
receipts should be considerably less,
Surely no student could object to a
$1.00 or $1,60 per year extra, which
could be collected in the game way
that the funds for retiring the "gym.'
debt are raised, I.e. Included in the
Alma Mater fee.
If the plan is feasible and can be
carried through it will result in a
more even distribution of tbe burden.
Under the present system, Seniors, in
their last three months, contribute
$6.00 to a project from which they
will derive no benefit, while succeeding
classes pay nothing.
Editor's Note
We are informed that this plan was
given consideration, but was rejected
on business grounds. Perhaps the
Business Manager will write an explanation for publication. We are
satisfied that there were good reasons
for not floating a loan, but an explanation would be of interest to all

Sevilla (Spain), Oct., 1930.
To the Manager,
Dear Sir:
I have the honor to inform you
that I have been appointed for the
Press-service in connection with the
issue of the new Columbus Postage
Stamps in commemoration of the discovery of America.
The stamps have been put into
circulation to-day, in Sevilla.
I believe readers of your periodical
would appreciate the news I am send-
!ng. (If) you will graciously publish
it in your Journal, should be very
much obliged to you for one or several copies of the respective number.
Here enclosed, please, find my address  ready  for  use.
With my anticipated thanks, I remain, Dear sir,
Yours   very   truly,
Eduardo   Navarro.
Editor's Note:—Also enclosed ready
for use was a complimentary set of
these colorful and interesting stamps.
Any students who wish to see them
may apply to the Editor, and any
who want to obtain sets for their
collections should write to Signor
Navarro   at   once.
The   Editor:
I sincerely trust that this letter
will not be critized too strongly, as
it is merely a suggestion and an idea.
When the stadium at Little Mountain has been completed what percentage of the year will it be used by
the City. The fact that Seattle uses
the U. of W's stadium only 3 or 4
times a year leads me to believe that
Vancouver will not have much more
need of its proposed stadium than the
above  mentioned.
Would, or would it not be a feasible
idea for the University to put some
proposition up to the Council, arranging for the construction of the stadium, in which certain requests be
accepted, in return for the $10,000.
There are two advantages to this

1. That the stadium at Little Mountain will draw much larger crowds.
2. That when the people of Vancouver see that the U.B.C. has a really
worthy team, they will feel it
their duty to help raise funds to

Editor,  tbe  Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
In view of our stand at the past
meeting of the A.M.S. we wish It to
be clearly understood that we are
not in favor of any post-mortem agitation detrimental to the furtherance
of the stadium project. The Council
has received ratification from the
student body, and further opposition
to what is now the will of the student
body would only reflect upon the stability of the A.M.S.
Yours sincerely,
E    H.   King.
A. L, Todd.

(Which we are still asking Archibald, the All-Right, what it means.)
Having overheard certain wise words
concerning sophistication, we have
been considering the quality with our
accustomed care and thoroughness. It
appears, from the opinion of a certain brilliant columnist, that the more
you are sophisticated, the less you
are sophisticated. One is then to believe that the simpler the output of
any writer, the greater his sophistication. This is confusing. Up to
now we had always thought of our
dear fellow-scribe, A. the A.-R. in
the terms of the good old song,
"If this young man expresses
him__lf in terms too deep for
Why, what a   very   singularly
deep young man this    deep
young man must be."
But its all wrong. According to
our new and enlightened view, the
deeper the dumber. We can only
believe that the "decorative glimpses
of the obvious" wherewith the Rapper
adorns his column are nothing out
part of a gigantic system of camouflage built up to hide from the world
the un-brushed peachbloom of the author's unsophistication, innocence, and
boyish  enthusiasm.

Wednesday is Big Block Day
Dance Will Feature Big Block Day
Tomorrow will see the advent of the first annual Big Block
Day. the main feature of which is to be a dance given in honor
of the men who won their major awards last year. Among the
groups are two Freshmen, Cy Lee and Jim Winters. Leo Gansner la a trackman, a long distance runner. R. Chapman is of
basketball fame, and there are six English and six Canadian
rugby men. The list of stars is as follows: Track: Leo Gansner 'Basketball: R. Chapman, Cy Lee; Canadian Rugby: Ernie
Peden, J. Mitchell, D. Moore, A. Rhodes, B. Latta, J. Winters,
T. Berto; English Rugby: Bobbie Gaul, Dick Nixon, Ken Martin,
Vic. Rogers, Bill Robbins, Monty Wood.
Not only are these men outstanding in athletics, but many
of them are prominent in executive positions. Leo Gansner is
President of the Track Club this year, and Vice-President of the
Western Canadian Intercollegiate Athletic Union. Last year
Bill Robbins held down the presidency of the Graduating Class,
and Ken Martin heads the Sciencemen's Undergraduate Association.
Tommy Berto is the only student to receive an Honorary
Award for his outstanding contribution to athletics. He was
associated with athletics at U.B.C. for many years, having been
President of the Men's Athletic Association in his time.
Heiley Arkley: Honorary President of the Big Block Club. He
was noted as a basketball player and is now employed in the city.
Brit Brock: One of the towers of strength on the McKechnie
Cup team years ago, he is now back at U.B.C. instructing in
Civil Engineering.
Art Lord: Art who was one of the most outstanding men U. B.
C. has known is following his chosen profession of law at the
City Hall.
BH! Phillips: This mighty soccer man has accepted an engineering position in Lagos, Nigeria.
Jimmle Sinclair: Another McKechnie Cup man is finishing up the last year of his Rhodes Scholarship at St. James College, Oxford. Jimmie was St. James' wing three quarter last
year and nobody would be surprised if he succeeded in copping
his Blue this year.
Bert Tupper: Twice captain of the McKechnie Cup team, he
is now working at the B. C. Telephone Co's. Radio Station.
Howard Eaton: Howard is back in town after two years at
Harvard. While there he and Ralph Farris, another Big Block
man took part in the first Harvard-Yale English Rugby game.
Bill Locke: Captain of Varsity last year, he remained in
Eastern Canada at the end of last summer's tour. He is doing
very well with the Northern Construction Co.
Jimmy Dunn: This runner is still to be seen around the campus, for he is taking Education.
Wilf Morris: This rugby forward and pole vaultor ia with
Major Grant, the contractor, applying his knowledge of engineering.

Big Block Club is Sport Medium
The Big Block Club is now in its second year of existence
and is beginning to take its proper place in Campus athletics.
Formed of the outstanding athletes of all branches of sport, the
Club was organized as a medium of co-operation between the various clubs coming under the Men's Athletic Association.
By means of the Big Block Club players and fans among the
student body can be enabled to act together for the benefit of
university sport as a whole. Heretofore, certain matters in the
realm of sport have been nobody's business. Now, if they need
backing, the Big Block takes them in hand.
For instance, it has long been said that there should be a
closer connection between high school athletics and the University. Nothing was done until the formation of the Big Blook
Club. Last year this organization presented a cup to be competed
for by high school basketball teams. This tournament, an annual affair, will be held this year during the Christmas holidays,
in the university gymnasium.
Similar competitions in other branches of sport will probably be promoted. By this means, not only will sport in the
high schools be encouraged, but promising material for future
university teams will be developed.
Another problem which the Big Block Club is best fitted
to tackle is the drive for a stadium fund. The students have
pledged $10,000. The government has promised $15,000 if an
additional $5,000 can be raised by the students. The most likely
way of raising this last amount is by a drive for subscriptions.
The Big Block Club is the logical society to conduct such a drive,
being representative of all sports that will benefit by the erection
of a stadium. There is no other organization competent to undertake this task.
Membership qualifications ensure that the members will
have an active interest in college athletics. All students winning the Big Block award for proficiency in sport automatically
become members of the Club. The award is made at the discretion of the Big Block Committee, which is composed of the President of Men's Athletics, the captains of the senior teams in major
sports, one member of the Alumni appointed by the Alumni
Society, and one member of the Faculty appointed by the Faculty
Committee on Student Affairs.
While awards are usually made to members of major teams,
who fulfil certain qualifications, outstanding players in minor
sports whose ability compares favorably with Canadian championship standards may be given a letter if the committee sees
fit. Graduate holders of the Big Block letter are honorary members of the Club.
It is intended to develop Presentation Day, when the awards
are made, into Big Block Day in honor of those who have most
recently received the highest recognition that the University can
give for prowess in athletics. This year a dance will be held by
the Club which will undoubtedly become an annual social event
of importance.
At the presentation ceremonies the whole student body
gathers in the Auditorium to show its appreciation of the men
who have carried the Blue and Gold to victory on playing field,
track and gym floor. Each winner of an award appears on the
stage to receive his letter and i.s applauded by the assembled
students. It i.s in this way that the Alma Mater Society gives
recognition to its outstanding athletes.

It has been the custom for the last few years for the Alumni
Association to publish an issue of the Ubysseygrad at the time
of the Homecoming celebration. That the four page paper has
shrunk to this single sheet is explained by the statement of the
Association's hopes of editing a yenr-book, to bo found elsewhere
on the page.
However, the purpose of the Ubysseygrad remains in one
function undiminished. Though forced to decrease the actual
news of graduates which was formerly important in this paper
we continue one tradition with the same fervour, though the
space is small. That tradition is the privilege of extending the
best of good wishes to the various groups of U. B. C. Alumni
whose thoughts at this time of year turn back to their undergraduate days, whether they were spent at the heterogeneous
buildings at Fairview, or the slowly mellowing new quarters at
Point Grey.
This editorial is intended chiefly as a form of greeting to those
?roups of grads who hold reunions in many corners of the earth,
rom Toronto, Montreal, and other Canadian centers to the students at Paris and other points east and west.
From time to time echoes of the enthusiasm of these reunions reach Vancouver, and it is in answer to these echoes that
we publish this Ubysseygrad early, in time to extend greetings,
good-will and good wishes to those graduates who cannot attend
the annual Homecoming at the old University.

Needs Support
of Grads
Klahowyah Tillicuml
What do you think of Alumni publications? Are you satisfied with
past performances? What is your
opinion regarding the advisability of
having an Alumni Year Book?
The Editorial Board would like to
attempt such a publication for this
year. The book would be pre-eminently a record of achievement. It would
chronicle appointments of graduates,
research accompliahed and in progress, advancement ir. profession,
news of graduates doing interesting
work at home and abroadjthese in addition to the customary news regarding the altar and the cradle. And
due tribute would be paid to the memory of those whose lives are finished.
In different universities of this continent and of Europe are groups of
graduates with the common bond of
love for our Alma Mater. The Editorial Board hopes to publish a letter
from each group as well as letters
from grads in far corners of the earth
who can talk to their former classmates only on paper.
In returning to your Alma Mater,
hiiven't you been amazed by the
changes? The proposed Year Book
will endeavor to keep Alumni abreast
of university progress. You will
want to hear about the Faculty and
Staff: new appointments, present positions held by former members of
Faculty, research, books published.
You will be glad to know what
honors nave been conferred on your
former instructors.
Perhaps you took part in the historic pilgrimage to Point Grey and
are far from the cairn you helped
build. Wouldn't you like to see tho
Point now? The Year Book will tell
you of buildings erected, of donations
to the university of a scientific, a
literary or an artistic nature
Do you remember the society you
helped to establish and how you
worked on the constitution? Wouldn't
you like to hear how it is progressing ,a_ well as what the undergrads
are doing in sports, in debating, in
the Players' Cluh or the Musical
Society? A Year Book would tell
So far this letter has concerned the
hopes of the Editorial Board. The
Board wants to publish a book that
will interest the Alumni near and
far, from the engineer in the tropics
to the young housewife in the home,
No board could perform this task
alone. The board needs your help.
This you can give in two ways.
First, you can send information.
What have you been doing? What
news have you of other grads ? What
do you know would interest your
former classmates ? Send it all to the
Editor-in-Chief, Miss Isobel Harvey,
4212 Cypress St.
Thero is a second way in which
you can help. That is by paying
your Alumni fee. (You have been
expecting this, haven't you?) To
publish the Year Book will cost between two and three hundred dollars.
Don't you honestly think it would be
worth more than the membership dollar to have such a record as we have
outlined? Of course, if you wanted
to pay a life membership fee of ten
dollars, that would be all right, too.
So send in your news and pay your
fees and make it possible for the
Alumni to have a record of the doings
of old friends, a reminder of the
happy days we all spent together
and an up to date knowledge of how
present students are maintaining the
old tradition we founded.
We wish you the best of link
wherever you are, and hope to hear
from   you.

Three of the four Christmas plays
to be produced by the Players' Club
thl* year are of student origin. This
innovation was brought about by the
unusually high standard of the plays
entered for the Players' Club prise.
The student plays are, "Fog," the
prise play by Sydney Risk j "Finesse,"
by Byron Edwards] and "Trees" by
Sallie Carter. Of the three, 'Finesse'
ls a farce*, "Fog" Is a tragedy, and
"Trees" a drama. The fourth play
Is a revival of a 1920 success, "The
Florist's Shop," by Winifred Hark-
Although the parts have not yet
been definitely assigned, the work of
production Is well under way. In
charge of the direction of "Trees"
is Prof. Lloyd, assisted by Alfred A.
Evans: "Fog" is being directed by
Mrs F. Q. C. Wood: "Finesse" by
Dr. F. C. Walker, and "The Florist's
Shop" by Mrs. Jack McDougall, assisted by Sydney Risk. "The Florist's
Shop" made the reputation of Mrs.
McDougall, who was formerly Muriel
As usual, the graduates are to be
invited to the Players' Club Christmas Performance. Nights for the
production are Thursday, Friday and
Saturday, November 20, 21 and 22.
The curtain rises at 8.80, overture
beginning at 8.2B. The first night
is Student Night; Friday is Quest
Night and Saturday is divided between undergraduates and guests.
Alumni can secure their invitations
by writing to Miss Alice Morrow,
secretary of the Plavers' Club, before
November 10, anu .nclosing their
name, address and a stamp. Tf there
is any preference for the night of
attending the plays, the writer should
indicate which night he prefers. If
possible his invitation will be arranged for that night, otherwise he
will receive his invitation for whichever night is available. It is therefore advisable to send appications
early. One invitation will be sent
to each applicant, if single; if married, two may be sent.
Speeches from President L. S. Kllnk,
Dean Buchanan, Dean Brock, Dean
Clement, Dean Bollert. and Dr. Q. G.
Sedgwick will be the leading feature
of this year's Alumni Association
luncheon. It will be held on November 8, in the Altec Room of the Hotel
Georgia, and la billed for 12.30 in
order to give time for attendance at
the Canadian Rugby game In the afternoon.
Arrangements for this luncheon
are in the hands of the Alumni Association Executive, tho general convenor being Miss Doris McKay, Arts
'26, and the hostess Mrs. Angus, vice-
president of the Association. The
purpose of the luncheon is to afford
opportunities for reunion between
garduates and between them and the
faculty. Special attention is thus being paid by the committee to issuing
special Invitations to members of the
staff irrespective of their college.
To facilitate ticket distribution
among the Alumni and faculty at
Point Grey, tickets are being distributed from Miss Abernethy's office, in
the Administration Building. For the
benefit of down-town Alumni tickets
may also be obtained from the Georgia
Pharmacy or directly from Miss Doris
McKay, Fair. 1224 X. $1.00 will secure admission. As only a limited
number are being Bold, it is advisable to apply for tickets early.
Invited guests include Chancellor
and Mrs. R. E. McKechnie, President
and Mrs. L. S. Klink, Dean and Mrs.
Buchanan, Dean and Mrs. Brock, Dean
and Mrs. Clement, Dr. G. G. Sedgwick, and Don Hutchison, president

Rehearsing Commences
For Homecoming Night
We reprint an article from the
Ubysseygrad of November 6, 1929.
The reminder contained in this ia
especially for the benefit of the graduates  of  '30.
"The Kardex system of filing has
been installed in the U.B.C. register's
office for the list of names of members of Convocation. This visible

Alumni and Faculty arranged by the
Alumni Association, to be held at
the Hotel Georgia. The luncheon is
billed early so that there will be time
for those attending to adjourn to the
Canadian rugby game that will take
place later in the afternoon.
At night a large attendance is expected at the Men's and Women's
Basketball games tbat will be played
in the University Gymnasium, beginning at 8.00 o'clock. The games will
be followed by an informal basketball dance.
It is hoped that the Sunday evening service for Homecoming can be

Ittanp Supplement
fitto Voofetf
Several new ideas are introduced
in this, the first Litany Supplement
of the session. A two-fold policy has
been declared—that pants will be
pressed both ways this year. How
well this will succeed is yet to be
estimated but we have behind us the
backing of the sartorial student body,
or what is more likely the backing of
a pulr of trousers.
To go from the above sublime to
the coming ridiculous we seriously
mean to appeal to the aesthetic emotions of all undergraduates and state
that this supplement Is one of high
Ideals and alms which will inculcate
in them the roseate feelings felt by a
goom as it wends it way about its
delicate art.
Another innovation is the introduction of "outside people" such as those
who dig ditches, build sky-scrapers
(an elevating subject), and drive
Fords. Well-known professionals in
hoboing and housepainting have been

appear on the campus that they not
be treated as an exhibit of freaks,
parading to be stared at by Freshmen. Students, by going out of their
way a little, could make of the forlorn
grads feel that by receiving a B.A.
they have not been hopelessly ostracized   forever.

Mr. Brown, the senior editor for the
j other issue, evinces annoyance at some
j remarks written in that indescribably
disjointed form usual to the Litany
Coroner. I am afraid that \fr. Brown
has  peculiar  ideas  about journalism
when he describes a picture of an almost illegible and  unimportant letter
as "the biggest scoop in many years."
But   apart   from   that,   really,   being
a   senior,   he   should   know   by   this
time   that,   when   defending   himself
against what he considers an attack,
it is just a little feeble to pull a sob
story about the hard  times he  had
j in  producing a paper which had so
| many mistakes it excited comment
To which has been awarded the
prise of something or other, you tell
um. for the best hit of guess-work
submitted to by an undergraduate.
The title has absolutely, we assure
you. nothing tn do with the story.
Curiosity is a very generalised
human trait, It is possessed in some
degree by everyone but mostly by
Profs, and Deans with attendance
lists.    But much to the reader's sur-
Crise this is not a story on curiosity
ut on satisfaction for satisfaction
Is much more enjoyable both at meals
and debts than mere curiosity.
Take the case of William G. Bum-
ford, no it's not the kind of case
you're thinking of, but take the case
anyhow. If you ure a member of the
vaudeville fraternity, it means you're
ham of one degree or another, but if
you're a member you will remember
William 0. Wumford.
A quiet, unassuming man was Willie, oh what a man waa he, a frat man
was born on Hallowe'en morn when
Willie was sent down to me. There
we go, away from the story again
and breaking into song. Well since
this story is about a song and dance
man it doesn't matter much. Well,
Willie was night-watehman at a
wurtzel factory and desired oh so
much to leave off watching the wurts-
les and go on the stage. He had a
fair voice but wurtzels were not a
very appreciative audience so the
story goes.
Came the dawn and Willie left the
factory to go on the stage. He packed
I up his pipe and the other pair socks
I and left for New Yawk, the mecca of
! all musically-minded men.   Willie in-
! tended to make the world song and
i dance conscious,    such    is    ambition
; dearly beloved readers.
1    Now comes the sound of galloping
horse-hooves and rescue draws nearer
! and nearer.   We'll be saved, beloved,
1 saved before those redskins massaker
I us,   heaven   be   praised,—hell—we're
' in the wrong manuscript.
i     Now that we've come back to Willie, he's on the   stage.    (It's   about
time   something   happened   in   this
story I don't know how to finish it
hut the show  must go on—up with
the curtain).    So far we've got   the
| curtain up but where is Willie?—Yes,
comes the echo, where is Willie?   Weli
it's a long sad story folks and if you
don't mind us    brushing    away    the
tears you'll be told.   The whole thing
centres around a little black box. Willie's  in that  black  box,  folks,  killed
by a flying ball from a miniature golf
course built at the stage entrance for
actors to while away their time.    Ah,
it was noble cleath--golf balls to the
left   of   him,   golf  balls   to   the   right
of  him,  thundered  our  Willie as he
insisted on  giving his act willy nilly
beneath a barrage of balls,    Then he
was  struck—he's up, he's down, he's
away, he's down and done for, sums
up the tale of Willie    the    Wurtzel
Watcher and his ambitions.
"The Annual"—by 8.R.O. — The
author of this book is of foreign nationality being half Irish and half
Nelson but hides the fact carefully by
writing in a fluent Lithuanian style.
The subject matter of this book Is very
patchy and most of the illustrations
are very poor but aside from all that
it is good book. The scene of the plot
is laid and handled with care in the
northern wilderness of Point Grey
where the undergraduate roams at
large and the eerie sounds of professors baying the moon are heard at
night. It is here in this dangerous
frontier land that the student, the
hero nf the novel, spends upwards
of four years having thrilling hand
to hand encounters with wild Maths
and Essays. He seeks and woos and
finally wins the hand of the beautiful
heroine Admitta Taye.
"The Ubyssey"—-by R. G. — The
author of this given to verbiose discussions on world-wide matters like
the C.O.T.C, the cafeteria and student
lethargy. The language becomes almost editorial in spots and sort of
spotty in some more spots.
The scene in which the protesting
sport editor is requested by the tyrannous overlord to go and darken the
fair pages of his journal no more
with badly used ink is most touching. Two other characters enter the
novel in an alternate manner and
battle over issues.
A chanter entitled "Muck-a muck"
is the only lively and worthwhile part
of the book.
"The Handbook,"—by D. B. in collaboration with C. L.—an informative
book, a trifle dry In places but interesting when read to Alma Mater
audiences. The theme of this novel
is not clearly put but * the critic
gathers that it is a treatise on the
foibles of clubs and organisations that
bother the student life of U.B.C, a
small college situated somewhere in
t£otoe00 ta tit Buafe
She is a goddess in the purple dusk.
Hers Is the beauty of the misty night
When the Frosh talk low In the
And the fratmen are getting tight.
Scented life-savers from a package
Or golden watch-fob, gleaming on
Bromlley's vest,
So my lady seems In my half-baked
The end of a moonstruck quest.
But when the sun sends transcendental
Inane in kindness, like one half-shot,
I grope for speech as I spot my
Ye gods, she is not so hot.

"The Vancouver  Sun,"  that staid
and respected journal, has published
a whole page of cartoons  depicting
scenes  on   the   U.B.C   campus.     In
connection with the cartoon is an article, describing a visit to the campus
under   the   guidance   of   my   friend,
Mamie Maloney.   Unlike most efforts
of outside papers to catch the "uni-

crude as to disgust the student reader

j Dear R.A.P.:
I think men are just too stupid.
Just because I wouldn't go to a dance
with Aloysius in a street cnr ho took
some one else. Of course I didn't
mind going in a street car a bit, but
why didn't he tell me before that
his father was coming home this week
and he couldn't have the Cord car
anymore. And I do like dances so

P.S.   -Do   you   ever   go   to   dances?
' Our earth is full of crouching things

Who most discreditably feed on

They miss all home made luscious-

Oh, Roast Beef sings of glory, and

Onion, mighty Onion, who moves all
men  to  tears;—
Once met, his presence liners on
through many, many years,
He comes in Enchiladas, with Soup
and Stew and Roast,
And partnered with a licefsteak, he's
the pride of any host.
From off his dish he shouts at you
and wont be overlooked,
He  lets you  know  he's  with  you,
whether he's raw or cooked.
"Oh little comrade, courage now, for-
get your darkling fear.
You can dine right well on Onion and
still have cash for beer."
Our earth is full of woeful things that

And yet there is a primrose path to
real satiety.
Oh, leave the Caf and Commodore,—
synthetic food's all wrong.
Come dine  on good  old Onion,  he  is
sure to make you strong.

Racqueieers Rally
To Revive Game
The annual fall tennis tournament,
which is being staged at present after
a lapse of two or three years, has
made considerable progress, especially in the singles events. The doubles
events have seen very litte play as
yet, but as the entries are relatively
few, there shoud be no difficulty in
completing the matches.
In the ladies' singles, the feature is
the decisive victory of Betty Halley,
unplaced In the draw, over Ruth
Whitbeck, one of the seeded players.
Gladys Munton and Frances Tre-
mayne have both advanced to the
second round without trouble; and
Susie Milne ts the first to enter the
the third round, by virtue of a 5-0,
6-2 triumph over Vera Peters. Phyllis
White, one of the favorites, has not
yet swung Into action.
In the men's events all the seeded
players have come through safely,
ana should make their places in the
quarter finals without difficulty, Shiels
and Cherrlngton have gained the
third round, while Dunford and Yat-
skin still have second round matches
to play. R. C. Price has fought his
way through to the fourth round, and
Is the first to gain one of the Quarterfinal brackets. Here he will meet
the winner of the third round, Shlels-
B. Goole match. E. Jenkins will
light it out with Bardsley or Gamp-
bell for another quarter-final bracket.
D. Nlcol meets his running mate,
Lando, in another third round encounter, and should come out on top,
R. Knight and J. M. Bardsley contest
the last of the quarter-final positions,
apart from those doped out for the
seeded stars
The Varsity and U. B. C. Women's
Grass Hockey teams both went down
to defeat on Saturday afternoon at
Memorial Park. Varsity, playing
South Van Ex-High held them down
to one goal in the first half, but
dropped four in the second canto.
'Despite Marg. Moffat's excellent play
at centre half, and Beth Pollock's
saves in goal the Varsity team was
snowed under 6-0.
North Van. rushed the U.B.C. goal
C. had a hard time to get their only
goal, but scored in the last few minutes
from Bea Webb's shot.
North Van. Ex-High, playing U. Ii.
in tbe opening period but were successfully held off and Jean Knight at
centre half cleared the bull In good
style, The game was the fastest of
the season but the forwards could
not score due to faulty passing. The
playing of Jean Knight at centre half
was especially good as also was thut
of Murg Harris in goal. MarJ McKay
at full buck gnve a fine line performance :
Breaking through a hard working
but out-classed Varsity defence, the
league leading Vancouver Grass
Hockey team registered a 4-1 win
over the college boys in Saturday's
league fixture at Connaught Park.
The U. B. C. team playing ten men.
was also overwhelmed when it suffered
a 9-1 defeat at the hands of the
Cricketers at Brockton Point.
In the Varsity vs. Vancouver game
Ward opened the scoring when he
flashed between two backs and thanks
to superior speed was able to shoot
without hindrance. A counter attack
by Vancouver, following the bully,
brought the ball into the students'
circle, but brilliant work by Dicks in
goal temporarily saved the net. A
terrific shot from Price, however,
proved the collegians vulnerability a
few minutes later, the same player
emphasizing the fact with a second
tally before half time. Vancouver
scored on a direct rush from the bully
off after the cross over and acquired
the final score just before the whistle.
Several rushes by the students were
repulsed before score eould be effected
but in the main the Vancouver team
had the edge of the play and the frequent attacks on the students' citadel
afforded Dicks the opportunity to
make many spectacular saves,
The team: Dicks; Jakeway, Jackson; Merrltt, Hughes, Semple; Ward,
DesRriscy, Sangah, Knight, Stevenson.

Burnaby  Legion
Floors Juniors
In the fast and hotly-contested
game, Varsity Junior Soccer eleven
was soundly defeated to the tune of
5-0, by Burnaby Legion, at Central
Park, Saturday.
Play in the first half was even and
both sides came close to scoring several times, H. Smith and J. Smith
both missing goals by a narrow margin. Frattinger, playing his flrst
game between the posts for Varsity,
was the star of the play in the flrat
half, and it was only his tactics that
kept the opposing forwards from tallying Broadhurst led the forwards
and started some nice plays, but he
was weakly supported by his inside
man, Cunningham, wbo was decidedly
not up to standard. L. Todd and J.
Smith on the wings, however, worked
well; and only ill-luck prevented them
from sagging the net,
After the cross-over Varsity pressed
but play quickly changed and after
a few minutes Burnaby's pivot man
crashed in a shot from close range,
Frattinger having no chance to save.
From then on Varsity was continually pressed and despite the efforts
of Legge, Dickson and Roper, who
were the pick of the defense. Burnaby managed to notch four more
goals, all from close range.
Play on the college forward line
was featured by lone sallies by the
wings and H. Smith, but all came
to nothing due to lack of combination.
The whole Varsity team worked hard
and hardly deserved such a heavy
adverse score.
The team — Frattinger; Roper;
Grant; White; Legge;G Dickson; J.
Smith; Cunningham; Broadhurst; H.
Smith;   L.  Todd.

Cleveland made several spectacular
plays, picking the ball off the ground
at top speed and kicking it clear.
Nixon at breakaway spoiled several
Ex-Tech runs by quick work. Estabrook tore a tendon in his leg but continued after a rest.
The East-enders crashed through
for their first try after about ten
minutes of play. The major points
were not added, The second Ex-Tech
try came in quick succession. A passing movement by the Green and Gold
drew the Varsity defense to one side
and a reverse movement by the attacking threes resulted in a try which
was converted. The score stood 12-8
in favor of Varsity.
The University squad rallied and
kept Ex-Tech on the defensive for
about ten minutes. Then Phil Barratt completed the Blue and Gold
scoring by a penalty goal from far
Ex-Tech came right back on the
kick off and scored auotber try in rapid order. The kick for the additional two points hit the post. Play was
