ROWING CLUB
WINS ENGLISH
RUGBY GAME
Eaton is Injured. ' Tho Rowers
Give a Finished Display.
All the Varsity rugby teams showed
a deolded improvement last Saturday,
although none ot them broke into the
Witt column.   The Intensive tackling
Rraotice instituted by Coach Tyrwhitt
I beginning to show results, as the
deadly Varsity tackling was a feature
of last Saturday's games.
The Varsity Senior team took the
field against Rowing Club with a
greatly rearranged lineup. For the
first time in the history of Varsity
football the team abandoned tho 2-3-2
scrum formation for the 3-4. Squiddy
Mclnnes and Ho,ward Baton made
their initial appearances of the season,
while Casterbrook of the Intermediate
played his flrst senior game.
Somewhat at a loss by their changes, Varsity did not combine well early
tn the game, resulting in the club going across for two unconverted tries.
While making a spectacular save ot
a loose ball, Howard Eaton sustained
a very painful kick in the back, necessitating his removal to hospital.
Varsity were again forced to rearrange the players, Dong Mclntyre.
playing five-eights. He Immediately
proceeded to show that this was his
natural position by leading the back-
Said in a series of rushes down the
eld. After a 40 yard kick by Qustafson and fast following up by the forwards, Mclntyre scooped the ball from
a loose scrum and, Weaving his way
through the Club backs, plunged on
the ball for Varsity's only score. Ous-
tafson failed to convert from a difficult
angle. For the rest of the half Varsity
continued to be the aggressors, the
blue and gold forwards shoving tholr
opponents around almost at will.
Rowing Club pressed hard at the
beginning of the second half, their
brilliant three-quarter line executing
several long runs. Mclnnls gave a
dazzling display in breaking these up,
ruining many prospective Club tries.
Leroy, the Rowing Club ace, made
some long zig-zag runs, finally resulting In a score under the posts which
he converted. The Varsity forwards
then again took command, driving
their way through the red and white
pack for big gains. Pat Taylor was
injured by a vfcicus charge by Farmer
which raised the ire of the spectators.
Taylor remained in the game but
was of little use from then on. Despite this Varsity had the better of the
play for the rest of the game, the forwards being especially prominent.
Doug Mclntyre led the three quarters
In several fast attacks, but Rowing
Club presented a dogged defense. In
tho last two minutes of the game Leroy broke through the Varsity backfleld and with a clear Held ahead tore
for the Varsity goal. A spectacular
flying tackle by Taylor Just as he hit
the line caused him to crash into the
post, Barrett then seizing the ball and
relieving with a long kick.
For the Club Leroy was the outstanding player. He waa the brains
of the team, leading all the attacks
with long tricky runs. Mclnnls played
well at fullback for Varsity while the
low tackling of Casterbrook and Barrett stopped many rushes. Noble was
the big push in the scrum, touring and
smashing through almost at wilt. He
is a clean hard tackier and It was
noted that players get up very, very
slowly after Kenny has tackled them.
Willis and Fncke, the Gold Lust twins,
played a vigorous game lu the forward
line.
Eaton's Injury will probably prevent
him from playing again this your.
The fastest and trickiest player on the
team he will prove a distinct loss. He
bore his very pulnful Injury with a
smile, and the team wish hi in a very
speedy recovery, The Injured list Is
growing fast, at least one man being
hurt In each game. It Is hoped that
the Jinx which has been following the
Varsity teams will make a sudden departure or at least change teams.
Last Saturday's line-up was: Mclnnls, Taylor, Barrett, Gustafson, Kast-
erbrook, Mclntyre. Focke, Katon,
Kldd, White, Sparks, Noble, Mahon,
Morris and Willis.
Varsity Racket Weilders
Win in Prairie Contest
Varsity Team Captures Four out of Five Events in
Western Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament
Winning every event but the women's doubles, the Varsity's crack tennis
team placed first In the first western intercollegiate tennis tournament held
in Edmonton on Friday and Saturday.   The team returned Monday morning.
Oordte Shields played great tennis to win the men's singles and he paired
with Harry Seed to win the men's doubles and with Hope Leemlng to win the
mixed doubles.   Hope Leemlng won the women's singles.
Jean Carlaw and Hope Leemlng put up a good battle for the women's
doubles and only lost after a hard match.   Saskatchewan won this event,
After much excitement getting ready, the team left on Wednesday night,
still packing their bags on the station platform. The party was composed of
Hope Leemlng, Jeanne Carlaw, Gordie Shields and Harry Seed with Mrs.
Spencer accompanying as chaperon.
Arriving at Edmonton on Friday morning the team was met by representatives from the Alberta college and taken to the various homes. Play
started later In the morning with the singles at the Armories indoor courts,
as three inches of snow made out-door play Impossible,
Shields took the courts against Oerrle of Alberta.   He took the prairie
man into camp 6-1, 6-4.   Hope Leemlng then got a work-out against MIbs Borland of Saskatchewan, and won by the same scores.
The girls then went down to defeat
against the Saskatchewan pair; al
though both Jean and Hope were playing good tennis they could not withstand the opposition.
On Saturday afternoon a crowd of
over three hundred turned out to see
the finals. The enthusiasm was evident In the noise made by the Alberta
enthusiasts.
The first match of the day was between Hope Leemlng, B. C, and Helen
McKenzie, Saskatchewan, playing off
In the finals of all events. Hope was
playing beautiful tennis, driving to the
corners and volleying with crisp precision, The prairie girl found the
pace far too fast and succumbed after
a hard fight at 7-6, 7-5.
Shields then took the court against
McMillan, who Is the Saskatchewan
open champion. On the second ball
Shields brought his racket up for n
drive, which bounced unexpectedly.
The racket caught him on the forehead, leafing a nasty gap. After first
aid treatment, play was resumed with
the coast lad playing better tennis
than before. His forehand drive had
the crowd gasping with Its terrific
speed and control. Shields walked
away with the match 6-2, 6-3.
B. C. Meets Competition
Shields and Seed then played the
men's doubles against the Saskatchewan pair and bad little difficulty in
winning the tlrst set. Moth teams
were volleying well and many rallies
found all four men at the net. The
crowd apparently got their money's
worth, for thrills and exciting rallies
were being dished up at every point.
In the second set the prairie team put
on a burst of speed after being down
3-0, Pulling up to three all. they finally won the oet at 7-5. The lights
had been off until this time and the
darkness battered the B. C. men when
someone had a brain wave and turned
tho lights on which made all the difference In the world to the coast men
Instead of using both hands to scoop
the ball out of the darkness, the B. C.
players took the net and ran away
with the third set 6-0.
Miss Leemlng and Shields then
started the mixed doubles against Miss
McKenzie and McMillan of Saskatchewan. Again speed and experience
told, and the coast stars were leaning
on the pills taking two straight sets
at 6-2, 6-2.
After the matches all teams wero
Invited to an informal reception at
the home of His Honor Judge Primrose. Dancing and refreshments were
Ihe order of tho day, tho time passing
only too quickly for the visitors.

Frosh Reception
Kla-How-Yah!
Lust Friday evening the Frosh were
officially received at Lester Court. The
Seniors had the usual good time In
performing this onerous duty, The
sweet young things lent themselves
gaily to the revelry of the evening
und thought It was so nice ot the
Seniors to leave their nice warm beds
and bo submitted to such a "crushing"
all for them,
On the orchestra balcony the word
"Kla-How-ya" waa printed In nice
large capitals. This was to take the
place ot a general introduction, formal
ones being taboo for the evening.
Some sweet young Froshettes evidently do not rend their Ubyssey—
when one was approached by a popular, athletic and klndly-natured Sophomore, she glared and snapped—"I have
not met you—Br-r-M This is the only
recorded faux pas of the evening.
Shortly after the commencement,
Johnny Oliver welcomed the Infants,
hoped they would have a good time,
and announced that all dances were to
bo "cut-in." Garden's orchestra supplied the original foot-tickling melodies; all, however, being so foot-
tickling that one never knew when
one dance ended and another began.
This state of affairs only added to the
merriment of the evening, of course.
Punch was dispensed, too—of a mild
quality guaranteed not to hurt the
tender "Innards" of the Freshies. The
supper was served In buffet style,
which provided for the breaking of as
many dishes as possible, according to
the loud crashes which rent the air at
Intervals.
At twelve o'clock the strains of the
home waltz were heard, and then5—
well, just try to get into the cloak
rooms. The Freshman-Senior rush
faded into mere Insignificance. After
about half an hour, however, the
screen was broken and tho dishevelled,
but not disgruntled mob were allowed
to depart to the next party on the list.
Those receiving were Dean and Mrs.
Kllnck, Miss D. Brown, Miss K. Baird
and Mr. W. Phillips.

University of British Columbia

Xmas Plays Chosen by
PlayeiV Club
It Is gratifying to announce that a
student play will be presented on the
Christmas programme of the Players'
Club. "The Usual Thing," a drawing-room farce, was written by Kaye
Lamb of Arts '27, and took the annual
prize offered by the Players' Club,
Several plays of good quality were
submitted In competition, and great
credit is due Mr. Lamb In the authorship of a light and pleasant comedy,
since student plays are traditionally
of a somewhat heavier nature.
The second of the four plays to bo
presented this year Is a miracle play,
"At the Gate Beautiful," by Harry
Mason. This sketch Is to he noted for
its artistic lighting and scenery effects, and will give great scope for
dramatic acting.
The melodrama of the evening will
be "The Drums of Oude," a gripping
story of India during a time of mutiny
nnd revolution. This play will rival
last year's "Luck Piece" In its breathtaking suspense.
The lust play will he a comedy of
southern life "The Man Who Died at
Twelve o'clock,'' by Paul Green, deals
with the dlfllcult situation of two
dusky and amorous lovers who have
fulled to obtain their uncle's consent
(o their marriage, and their unusual
•■Methods of persuasion.
Tryouts to decide upon the playeru
who are to obtuln the parts, will be
held  next   Friday.
First Soccer Loses
to St. Saviours
Exciting Game, but Breaks
Against Varsity
Athleilc Park was tha scene of a
keenly-fought soccer game on flatur-
day afternoon. Although the final
score was 44, It does not indicate tha
trend of the play, for the contest was
even all the time. A draw, in faot,
would have been a fair result, for If
the breaks had been at all even, a
much different score would have re- .
suited.
The field was wet and slippery, and
the light was poor towards the end of
the game. But at least tbe rain held
off, and the crowd which witnessed
the game saw a good brand of soccer,
St. Saviours kicked off, with Varsity
facing up the slight incline. The TJ. .•
B. C. men soon got possession of the
ball, and the left wing at onoe engineered a rush up the field. The opposing backs, however, were prepared,
and some good end to end play ensued. Both goalies were kept busy,
and each team allowed some corner
kicks In saving their own goal, But
each time the ball was cleared, and
for a while it looked like anybody's
game. In the excitement, the university defence seemed too anxious to
help their forwards, and as a result
the Saints scored on a rebound from
an uncovered shot. Varsity tried hard,
and with any sort ot luck would have
equalized. In one of these attacks,
Warden hit the goal post with a splendid shot from outside right, but the
ball was cleared. Before the period •
ended, St. Saviours scored again on a
lucky shot, making the half-tlnfe score
2-0.
When play resumed with Varsity
kicking down hill, the excitement
centered around St. Saviours' goal for
a while, and Varsity forwards missed
one or two nice chances to score. The
Saints, however, played a good game,
and by means of their rushing tactics,
another goal was scored against the
University. It was soon after this,
that Ledingham, after a nice bit of
play, scored Varslty'B only counter.
He played well throughout, and deserved the goal. Warden, at outside
right, played a good game, but was
not getting enough to do,—there were
times when he was In a good position
to score, but the ball did not come
his way. In the final stages of the
game it was getting dark, and St.
Saviours, having made several onslaughts, tallied with their fourth
counter. The whistle blew soon afterwards, leaving Varsity on the short.
end of the score.
Lineup: Keenleyslde, Crute and Baker; Cunt, Phillips and Ledingham;
Warden, Berto, Mayers, Evans .and
Emery.

CHILDREN OP AN IDLE BRAIN
Murmurs there are that the general attitude of students in this
UttiyeMity is snowing symptoms of decay. Doubts are expressed
aWttt the advisability of student government. What is the matter
ifitli Mir athletics and 'T esprit de corps"? Why are we not out to
tha rugby games, cheering, shouting, yelling—(although it may be
—far from our personal desire to so do.)
This editorial, however, does not aspire to rubber-stamp didactie-
ism;it is merely the embodiment in language of mental meandering.
Se spread our sails under the Emersonian Banner of the Sceptic:
ie who is not a Doubter, but who says there are doubts. One who
lives the impartial presentation of the facts about him, and who, if
rendering judgment, does so only upon the evidence.
On the evidence, then, the University atmosphere has no more of
decadence about it than must accompany any form of growth. In
making these few observations, we confess that, in the language of
lHatd, we cannot see the "idea" behind the "forms." Nor is our
perception quicjsened by the poet's vision, through which
He sees the World in a grain of sand,
And Heaven in a wild flower;
And 'holds Infinity in the palm of his hand,
And Eternity in an hour. . ..
We shall content ourselves with throwing out, here and there, a
Suggestion of an idea, as, obviously, the subject does not lend itself
to chiselled marble definition.
What, indeed, is the most alarming symptom of the supposed
decay, is the host of popinjays and "popinjettes" which may be
summed up, not by the purging influences of civilzation, "to humanize, to socialize, to rationalize," but rather in the elements of decadence "to Charleston, to flivver, and on the installment plan." And
this, the lowest element, herds and bunches and "popinjnys" its way
along.... It has not "T esprit de corps:" it has sheep-instinct. However, far from being super-saturated with asceticism, we shall not pass
judgment upon the bacchanal side of life. Under the Banner: The
fact has been presented; and, perhaps, there are doubts.
Skipping over the great mass of .students, the betwixt-and-be-
tweens,—the mediocre are never fit subjects for mental musings--we
shall play the mirror over the upper stratum, flashing the light on one
group for a brief moment, and then on to another.
As in all successful institutions, there is here the element of men
who arc the very bricks and mortar of I niviTsity life. At great
sacrifice to their studies, they devote a heavy portion of their time to
student affairs. They are, indeed, the pillars of Stoicism in their
patient forbearance of "humbugging" about with a mass and mess of
"humbug" detail. They at least can never come under the heading
of "decadence," no matter how quibblei's may toy with that definition.
On this higher level, too, although at the other end of the world
compared to the altruists just mentioned, is the class of self-sufficient
book-worms, who worm everything they can get from every book and
everybody. Each tends "to be to himself a theatre large enough."
The only possible value of these men is that they may contribute to
the interests of scholarship; but students who do not share their
knowledge are not likely, in after life, to rise above the rubber-stamp
of mediocrity. Now let us give our mirror just one more momentary
fash.
There is always a certain class of men, who are, in the vulgar
mind, fit objects of scorn—always the "aim" of the slow, un moving
finger. They, too, nre accused of an intense individualism- but they
must be sharply differentiated from the class immediately mentioned.
Granted that men of an individualiststie mind may never be the
breath and backbone of university social life. But these men.—thinkers—inasmuch ns thoy "lend thoir minds out ..." are not wholly
indifferent to the larger good of society, even though they do not dig
the spurs in, and force a laugh at pep meetings, or display the crazy
fanaticism of tho mob, yell-mnd and Charleston-mad. They may, at
times, acorn tbe mass; but. true to their Banner, try, nnd al times,
perhaps, succeed, in seeing life pretty clearly, and doubt only because
the evidence shows that truly there is room for doubt. Their outlook
ia that of the Emersonian Sceptic.
Thua, many are tbe groups and types. In one sense, all equally
good; merely different interpretations of life. Each shows one face
of a many-faced figure. Home arc blown hither and thither by every
willy nilly gust, and some sail only before a steady wind. Others
remain firm against the buffets of the storm, and take their lesson
with the poet, who wandering in a Grecian gallerv, perceived his ideal
in "The Man nf Stone;"
I met a statue standing still,
Still as marble stone stood he.
Perhaps, if "The Man of Stone" could speak, he would tell us
that, anyway, the dice of the gods are loaded. . . .
THE X Y Z OF THE RECEPTION
Once more the annual crush has come and gone, and the Frosh
has been received in the old-time way. But even Friday night's celebration was marred by the proverbial fly in the ointment. Anyone
who was unfortunate enough to be caught in the swarm of students
battling for egress must have entertained serious doubts as to the
cultural value of a university education. The spirit of the students
displayed on this occasion can hardly be commended; common politeness was forgotten in the excitement of the moment.
While it is more or less traditional that the Frosh should be a
crowded affair, there is neither excuse nor reason for the intolerable
congestion in the hnllway that brought an enjoyable evening to a
somewhat regrettable conclusion.
P.I.P.A.JERV1CE
University of California, (P.I.P.)
Larger than any other organisation of
Its kind, the California Alumni association has reached a total membership
of 16,194, This tact was contained In
an announcement made Saturday by
Robert Sibley '08, executive manager
of the Alumni association, to Julius
Wangenhelm '87, president.
The total includes former University students who hold paid memberships In the association, Sibley declared. This number greatly exceeds
the goal of fifteen thousand, which
was set in the recent drive for members.
University ot Washington, (P.I.P.)
—Smashing all former records registration reached the highest mark in
the history of the University when
final returns announced at a meeting
of the Hoard of Deans, held October
13th, showed 6,843 students enrolled
for the autumn quarter, The highest
previous mark was 6,310 students registered for the autumn quarter last
year.
University of Washington, (P.I.P.)
—Stephen I. Miller, formerly dean
of the college of business administration, declined the presidency of
the University of Washington tentatively offered him by the .Board of
Regents last Sunday. Miller's reply
to the board was as follows;
"The direction of a great Institution
of learning can be determined in an
atmosphere of sober reflection and
good judgment. In the present atmosphere of conflicting emotions I cannot
accept the responsibility for the
future policy of the University without the approval of all who have its
welfare at heart. The uniform courtesy of those who have placed their information at my disposal will remain
a pleasant memory to me."
Miller left for New York where he
will resume his duties as director of
education of the American Bankers'
Association.

Miss Bollert Speaks to
Women's Undergrad.
On Friday noon the flrst meeting
of the Women's Undergraduate Society was held in the Auditorium. After
the secretary had read the report
of the last meeting, Dean Hollert gave
a very effective talk on the attitude
of the students and their conduct In
I'liiversity  life,
Students, she said, are of three j
(•lasses--those who "come to see," the
people whose primary object In attending the I'liiversity is entertainment; secondly those who "come to
yet well," that is the students who
come merely because they think it
is good for them, and finally those
who "come to get cargo." This cargo,
Miss Bollert pointed out is twofold,
educational and social. One of the
most valuable lessons of college life
Is for students to learn to live together effectively. The old Ideal of
the University Blue Stocking is now
out of  date.
In conclusion Miss Bollert urged
the girls to remember that the reputation of the college depended as
much on the behaviour of the students in their social activities, as
It did  on scholastic standing.
Miss Dorothy Brown then announced that Miss Mary Robertson who
had been elected vice-president of
the Undergraduate Society last year
had resigned. Miss Kathrlno Held of
Arts '27 was then elected vice-president.

25-Year
Duofold
Point
// Combines Both Lifelong Wear
and Highest Writing Excellence
PUT the Parker Duofold point under a magnifying glass and you'll
see why it gives you instant flow.
The two points of this super pen are
so strong and so skillfully tempered that
they do not have to bind together for sup-
port, but are independent of each other.
Thus when the Parker is held point
down, a thin film of ink is always in the
channel between the points—ready to
flow the instant the point touches paper.
To write, you do not have to shake a
Parker Duofold or spring the points apart
In fact the Parker Pen will write immediately by its own weight alone, and without pressure or effort.
The Parker Duofold point is tipped with
an extra large pellet of Iridium that defies
a lifetime of wear.
This tip is hand fused onto the extra
thick gold nib, tempered to yield to any
style of writing, yet retain its original
shape. And we can guarantee it for 25
years not only for mechanical perfection
but for wear.
Step in to the nearest pen counter today
and try your favorite point in a Parker
Duofold-ExtraFine, Fine, Medium, Stub,
Broad or Oblique.

MAGGIE JIGGS
After careful observation, not to
mention extensive study and research
for fifteen years or more, It has been
Hnally concluded that Maggie Jlggs
Is certainly the most striking woman
in the public eye, movie-stars not excepted. To this her husband, aud
also her husband's friends, can bear
witness. The only members of the
male sex seemingly not affected in
this way are society "lions" and various tilted gentlemen. Perhaps they
are too blase*.
Maggie's personality Is exceedingly
forcible. She generally Impresses her
own opinion on most people, especially
on Jlggs of course, but she does not
necessarily stop with him.
Her favorite, mode of self expression is singing. Eminent authorities
are reputed to have said that her
voice oould not be equalled anywhere
for volume of sound. Unfortunately
there are no means of definitely proving this theory. However Jiggs' expressions during Maggie's performances must surely eliminate the need
of further proof.
A too hard and hasty Judgment
must not be formed of Maggie, for
she is really full of loving kindness—
to her husband—whon she needs
money. She Is always concerned
about Jiggs' health, and so Is careful
to do away with his corned beef and
cabbage. It Is so bad for the digestion, She also does her best to see
that Jiggs gets In early at night. Jt
is when he fails to comply with this
rule that Maggie mukes herself most
felt, and her psychological dlaracter-
istlcs are most strong.

HOW IT STARTED
Noah looked over the Hide of the
Ark In dismay. The waters were still
rising and the boat was tossing about
at the mercy of the waves. All tho
animals from the gigantic mastodons
to the smaller of the two bacteria,
were bellowing, squeaking and making other noises of their kind, Only
the pair of oysters were silent. Noah
drank another bottle of seasick remedy and looked again. The ark was
settling down almost Imperceptibly,
but sinking,  nevertheless,
Noah rushed down the stairways
which led through the many docks
to the bottom of the ship. There
were two feet of water in the well!
He bent forward to look more closely at the oily, dark fluid, nnd was
aware of a strong and unsaluhrlous
odor.    "Mllgf!" said he,

FROSH RECEPTION
PROBLEM SOLVED
Dr. Gargle McHooch, of Sagebrush
University, Utah, was "among those
present" at the Freshman Reception
last Friday, and now offers suggestions as to solving this problem.
"My first solution is that the committee in charge of the Reception
hire a large hall. I have not heard of
a hall In Vancouver larger than
Lester Court, but an agreement might
be reached with the C.P.R. or C.N.R.
to hire the large waiting room or
rostrum of one of these stations.
Otherwise the Arena oould be used.
"Or, the committee might hire two
or three halls and have receptions In
oach. It Is fairly safe to say that
no Freshman met all those crowded
Into Lester Court last Friday, and
that one might meet more in a less
crowded hall.
"The number attending the danoe
might effectually be reduced to about
one-half by excluding the Freshmen.
This is carrying out to the logical extreme the present tendency of making a Frosh Reception for anybody
but the Frosh. The objection to this
might be that it would no longer be
a Freshman Reception, but a ro-unlon
of upper classmen. To remedy this
the members of the incoming class
might be asked to come, say, half
nn hour earlier; they would then pay
their respects to the patrons and
patronesses and Immediately stage a
fade-out, leaving the floor to their
elders and betters. If the Freshmen
objected to the Inconvenience of this,
saying It made them late for bed,
or interfered with their studies, this
part of the reception might conveniently take place some noon hour,
preferably at the door ot the Cafeteria, where the newcomers could be
Introduced to the patrons while on
their way to lunch.

Kenny Carlisle once lost a basketball final for Varsity in rather an
odd way. Varsity Senior A team was
playing the Y.M.C.A. team for the
Senior Championship and only a few
minutes were left to play with the
score tied. An attempt to score on
the part of the Y team was being
blocked by Carlisle but instead of
breaking up the shot he touched
the ball with the end of his fingers
nnd helped the shot to roll into the
hoop.

Second Team Drops
Saturday's Game
Varsitys Second Soccer team met
defeat on Saturday at the hands of
Sydney Junklns by a 2-1 score. Varsity played with only ten men but
Gnuden seore'l early In the game and
Varsity held the lead until the minutes of time when Junkins got their
first score on a penalty called against
Wright. Junklns got their final score
a few minutes later to win the game.
The defence played a brilliant game
and Wright and Warden drew a great
deal of applause from the crowd by
their steadiness. Anderson excelled
In goal and drew the approval of the
audience by his fine work. Oauden
was the pick of the forwards but the
rest of the forwards played well and
got away at every opportunity. Rubs
Logle, the manager was well satisfied
with the playing of the team and with
practice It should bo capable
of winning against any team In the
league. The players would appreciate
some support from the rest of the
students which Is noticeably lacking
at present. Line-up — Anderson,
Wright, Warden, Splllsbury, Todd,
Swanson, Wilkinson, Gauden, Duth.ll,
Millar.
Third Soccer Loses to
Colllngwood 5'0
Varsity's third soccer team entertained eleven gentlemen from Colllngwood on Saturday at Trimble Park:
the relative worths of the former and
the latter were in the ratio of zero to
live.
The discouraging result was the second of Its kind within the last two
weeks; tho blame, however, has heen
traced to the weatherman, whose disposition on Wednesdays has prevented
practices.
Material for a winning team In this
division In not altogether complete.
There Is still a pressing need for ono
or two or three (to n terms) players
of first-class calibre. The team (or
most of them), will be found at Trimble Park on every afternoon (Wednesdays, rain or shine), and anyone who
has not signed or any wishing a try-
out will be welcomed with open arms.
This appeal cannot be over-emphasized.
The trophies, medals and shields
which are competed for by these
teams, are of a very high order, and
numerous In quantity. Any effort Bpent
In developing the third team is tar
from wasted, for the sake not only of
what It may do In present surroundings, but also of what It may do as a
team tour years from now.
CANADIAN RUGBY
The Canadian Rugby Club has deckled to enter a team In the Senior
City League. Since all players now
turning out are playing "Big Three"
games, there is room for eighteen en
tlroly new men.
Previous experience Is no object;
all that is necessary Is a willingness
to work. This is an excellent opportunity to learn an excellent game.
Turn out this afternoon at 3 o'clock
at the training shacks. See Max Cameron or Johnnie Currle for particulars.    Varsity needs your help.

"That  Government  Ownership  of  all

Intermediates and
Frosty Lose
Ex Tech. Beats Frosh 3-0, In Hard
Fight.
Both Varsity intermediates went
down Saturday. The Frosh ran off
the held with the short end of a 3-0
count agalnBt Ex. Tech. aud the Intermediate hugged the mean end of a
15-0 score against Soaforths.
The Frosh were going groat guns
on Saturday and the team deserved
at least an even break. The Tech.
team opened up with a rush on the
kick-off and took advantage of the
nervousness of the Frosh backs to
keep the ball well down In the yearlings territory. Only the fine packing
of the Freshman scrum prevented the
former high boys from Bcoring. Toward the end of the half the Freshmen showed a brilliant burst of speed
and got clear for long gains. Only the
fine tackling of Flanagan tor Tech.
kept the Frosh from scoring.
Five men were particularly prominent for the Frosh squad and If the
team shows the class that they showed on Saturday they will go a long
way in the series. Bertie Barrett the
Frosh recolvlng half shows rare ability behind the pack. He is fast,
strong tackier and a fine ball handler,
and should make his mark in the
game. Richardson Is another player
who shows the forsight dash, and ball
handling ability that stamps him as a
player of rare promise. Parker and
Straight are the tall rangy types of
forwards that are showing the way
for fast forward play. They are always on the ball and fine tacklers on
the defensive.
McNairney opened the scoring for
the Techs, at the end of the half and
the convert failed.
The second half found the Frosh
battling every Inch of the way and
every man played brilliantly but they
could not go over.
The kicking of Helmer almost won
the day but It was not to be a victory
despite every effort. Next week It Is
going to be a win for the Frosh.
Sckfortht Swamp Intermediates 18-0
The Intermediate took a drubbing
from the Seaforths to the tune of 15-0.
Due to Injuries they presented a
weakened front to the Highlanders
and although they held well In the
llrst half, their opponents won through
after the lemons. The Intermediates
are u very light team but take a lot
of punishment. Hundal, Hodgtns and
Bull worked well In the naokfleld while
Shields and Jones were outstanding In
the scrum. At to-morrow's practice
special emphasis will be placed on the
coaching of the intermediate teams
after the fine showing made, and both
teams will probably register their initial victories next Saturdiiy.
Canadian Rugby TeamJ
Inexperienced. Loses
Inexperience In offence and defence
cost the Varsity Canadian Rugby
team Its first game for the provincial
championship Saturday at Athletic
Park when the blue and gold was
beaten  12 to 0 by Vancouver.
Vancouver had to fight every inch
of the way for Its victory, however,
and the new team showed latent power. Costly errors In defensive and offensive work at crucial moments caused by the inexperience of most of the
players, and speedy, heavy opponents
proved too much for the University
team.
Captain John Currle, however, was
magnificent In defeat and but for
his fighting spirit and clever offensive
work the score against Varsity would
have bee much greater. Currle carried the ball for long gains himself
and directed the play,
In the last halt a final desperate
tackle of his saved another almo.U
certain   touchdown.
Vancouver crossed the Varsity line
twice In the first hall, The other two
points were scored by rushes from
long kicks, which the Varsity safeties
couldn't handle because of the slippery  ball.
Varsity bucks showed much speed
and the line was heavy enough lo
make good gains had they had more
practice. The blue and Kohl ends
did not follow the hull and on the
defensive they were sucked into the
Interference  too often.
Next week the senior team journeys to Victoria lo play the second
game of the big three series and
the following week Victoria is entertained here. With a littl more practice and Instruction the blue and gold
should   present  a  powerful offensive.
Sportorial  j
Every Varsity home team lost Saturday but that is not a matter to be
lamented. If one loses games and
yet shows marked improvement over
previous showiugs there is lots to bo
thankful lor. The victories of the
tennis team In the Western Canada
meet more than offset these losses.
The Miller Cup team showed the
best form agalnBt the Rowing Club
Saturday they have displayed In the
past three weeks. They are developing a fast brand of rugby and considering the class of team they were
playing and the fact that they held
them to a 14-3 score at full time and
6-3 score at half time speaks highly
for their improvemet.
It was a tough break for Howard
Eaton, and here's hoping his injury
will not keep him out of the game
for the rest of the season aa he is
one of the most valuable men that
has clicked his heels at wing foi some
time.
The Canadian team lost out to Vancouver 12-0 but they were up agalnBt
stiff opposition and were playing a
team that had two games' experience behind their showing. They did
remarkably well and look like the
team to beat Id tho Triumvirate. They
have a powerful line and the makings
or a fine backfleld. John Currle is
one of the finest ball carriers that
Varsity has yet turned out and his
playing brought the fans to their feet
on Saturday. Il should be a win Saturday against Victoria and the city
league team will make It hot for the
Meraloma crowd.
Young Doug Mclntyre played his
usual brilliant game and Tiny Noble
shone at the forward berth.
The soccer teams all went down
but the first team were up against a
real opposition In St. Saviours, The
playing of Phillips was outstanding on
the defense and his fine booting kept
the game within reach at all stages.
A stronger forward line might have
won the day but they showed lack
of that finish that wins games.
The second team had to fight it
out with ten men and things didn't
go so well. A penalty In the dying
minutes killed  their chances.
DEBATERS CHOSEN-
INTERCOLLEGIATE
The try-outs for the International
'(■bates for this term were held on

as Scotch things are.
