VANCOUVER, B. C, MAR. 15, 1923
No. 19
In Largest Vote Ever Polled In
University Students
Declare Choice
The closet election which has ever
been held in the University of B. C.
gave presidential honors for 1923-1924
to Jack Grant by a majority of 19
votes, out of a total vote of 860.
Jack Grant, the elected president of
the Alma Mater, attended Public
School in Victoria, and also took his
first two years High School in the
Capital City. In 1920 he matriculated
from the King George High School,
and entered the B. C. University.
Since entering the University Jack
has always taken an important part
in student activities. In his Freshman
year he was a member of the executive, and a Ubyssey reporter. In 1921
he was elected president of Arts '24,
and in 1922 vice-president of the Men's
Undergrad  Society.
While president of his year, Jack
Grant led the debating team of the
U. B. C. against the Reed College team
of Portland, Oregon. Moreover, he
originated the idea of the "Campaign"
for the new University, and as campaign manager enlisted the enthusiastic support of the student body. As
leader of S. C. M. delegation, he attended the first National Canadian
Student Conference at Toronto. He
is also a member of the Historical
Undoubtedly the students of the
U. B. C. feel that their confidence in
their new president is well placed.
He has proved himself to be reliable,
earnest, sincere, and a hard worker.
At local meetings, before the assembly
in Victoria, and also at Cloverdale he
has   shown  his   ability  as  a  speaker.
Surely under the direction of its
new president our Alma Mater will
again enjoy a most  successful year.

Well-rilled houses, and enthusiastic
and appreciative audiences greeted the
initial performances of "You Never
Can Tell" presented on Monday and
Tuesday nights at the Orpheum
Careful direction and conscientious
rehearsing left nothing amiss in the
performances. The acting was far
from amateurish, and the characters
well portrayed, the cast entering into
their respective parts with much interest and intelligence.
The play itself, however, did not
measure up to the standard which has
been' set in former years. The first
two acts gave promise of many interesting incidents and complications,
but the last two were inclined to drag,
being very long and drawn out; and,
the solution arrived at was not wholly
satisfactory. These deficiencies were
in a great part covered by the clever
acting of the characters. and the
breezy comedy furnished by the twins.
Mrs. Clandon, the mother, was well
portrayed by Beatrice Johnson and although advanced in ideas, was rather
old-fashioned in her mode of dress.
Betty Somerset as "Gloria" was
charming, she captivated her audience
not only with her own delightful personality but with the skill with which
she portrayed the modern girl and
her truly feminine caprices.
The Twins, Dolly and Phil, played
by Beth McLennan and Fraser Lister
were irresistible. Their carefree and
yet 'whole-hearted interpretation of
their roles gave the audience much to
laud and admire.

Close  Debate  on  Ruhr  Question
Marked Achievement For
This University
Over 1500 persons heard the debate
in Berkeley and when the ballots were
counted the B. C. men were awarded
(he decision by only 26 votes. Lome
Morgan and Walter Hodgson spoke
with the two best speakers in the
southern college, M. C. Dempster and
S. W. Gardiner. Both of these men
have won the highest awards in the
University of California for debating.
At home the contest was closer than
the ballot vote indicated. A. E. Grauer
and Harry Cassidy received 443 supporters and A. E. Murphy and W. Witkin  261.
Murphy and Grauer were generally
considered the better speakers and
the rebutals of these men were exceptionally good.
The subject debated both here and
away was: Resolved that France was
justified in her occupation of the Ruhr
Valley. The teams at home upheld
the affirmative.
Grauer opened the attack here
speaking on the moral side of the
question. He pointed out that although France was a victor her people
must pay more reparations than the
Germans. He said that if the U. S.
had suffered in proportion to France
all the industries west to Pittsburg
would have been destroyed.
Mr. Witkin retaliated for the south
and claimed that France was attempting to ruin Germany commercially and
that she was abusing her occupation
of the Valley. She had taken the offensive step against the wishes of
the U. S. and Great Britain, he claimed.

Varsity Soccer Squad Will Meet
Vets, in Blue Ribbon
Game of Series
(By "The Soccerite")
( a Saturday at Athletic Park, followers of the round ball game will
see the blue ribbon event of the year.
On that day the fast-stepping Collegians will lock horns with the league
leading Veterans, and the outcome of
the struggle will decide the ownership  of  the   Mainland  Cup.
The Vets, on the season's play are
favorites. Should they, however, display the same form as they did
against Cedar Cottage last week the
result will be: "Another trophy at
Fairview." On the other hand Varsity's mediocre display at Moody
Equare two weeks ago disappointed
the supporters of the Collegians and
made the Soldiers stronger favorites
than  ever.
The fact remains, however, that the
College eleven are a stronger cup
team than a league team. McLeod
will be on hand for the game, as also
will Jeff. Emery and the result is one
of the strongest forward lines in the
city. It must not be forgotten that
the Vets, have many excellent players.
Forgie their brilliant center-half is a
delight to watch, while Robinson's
work in goal compares favorably with
the best in the city, viz., Mosher, San-
ford of Sapperton and Gad of Cedar
Cottage. Adam Kerr, is also dangerous, while such plajyerst a)s Nairn,
Morgan and McDougal are well known
to all mainland football followers.
On the play of both teams during
the season \"The (Soccerite" favors
Varsity. Not only are the College
squad better cup-fighters, but they
have youth, fine condition and speed
in their favor. Added to that they
are fighting for the glory of their
Alma Mater. The Veterans are older
players, more experienced, perhaps,
but not so fast or so young. The outcome of the fight, even so, is problematical.
Allen, next to Craig, the peer of
city referees will handle the game.
He is well versed in its finer points,
and can be relied upon to check up
the players and give satisfaction to
all. A large crowd of students is expected to be on hand and the Park
management is expecting in all a
crowd of at least five thousand fans.
Interviewed on the matter of thefts
of books from the library, Mr. Ridington announced that, in view of the
fact that several valuable vohrmes
have been taken in the last few
months, the authorities would be under the necessity of restricting the
privileges of the honest 99% of the
Student Body, in order to prevent the
depredations of the dishonest 1%, unless some measure of student discipline could he enforced to put an end
to this despicable practice. THE    UBYSSEY

Extracts From
Council's Policy
The president of the Freshman year
said that the Hike would fall hat if
there was no one to look after the
chaperones so he asked me to join
his class at West Vancouver. I went
because Miss Peck and Dr. Sedgewick  would  be there.
The weather looked doubtful as we
started out, but what a change there
was. We took the West Vancouver
Ferry and on arriving at the Metropolis found that it would be necessary to hike almost ten yards to the
dance hall. The giris parked the eats
in the kitchen and the men started to
prepare the piano and traps for the
Russ. Palmer, the president, announced that we could hike for about
half an hour. Part of the orchestra
took some girls up the mountain and
being a good chaperon, I went with
the odd Freshette. Neither of these
was four feet wide. We waded
through mud for an hour and then returned.
At about three o'clock we started
to hike around the floor to pretty good
music. Kay was with us going over,
but Doc arrived late. It was arranged to smuggle him onto the stage and
when this was accomplished the curtain was raised and we gave a "sky
rocket for Doc."
Miss Peck thought the orchestra
was not very good so she decided to
play the traps. She made plenty of
noise even if it was not in time.
At five we had supper and although
I was not hungry I did not want to
see the cake go to waste. Neither did
Doc. for he ate more than Miss Peek
and that was a great feat.
We danced after supper until almost
seven when we took the ferries home.
Some of us finished up the day by
going to the basketball  games.

Jack Clyne, as Valentine, possessed
much of his usual stage assurance and
showed a very keen conception of the
part. As a "duelist of sex" he cannot
be surpassed, but lacks much in
genuine "love-making."

All University Students have an eye
for the artistic so no one can have
walked through the main hall and not
have noticed the array of posters that
the Players' Club tacked up. Each one
had a charm of its own and they all
showed that a great deal of time and
trouble had been expended in them.
The Players' Club wishes to thank
the artists for their kindness in doing
such splendid work so willingly. Those
to whom the Player's Club are indebted are:—Miss Margaret Lewis, Mr.
Allen Harris, Mr. E. Chapman. Also
Miss Helen Clark, Miss Virginia Spencer and Miss Jean Bloomfield who although not students were interested
enough to help us along.
The F. B. C. was successful in the
inter-collegiate debates winning here
and abroad. The representatives who
went south returned early this week
and are receiving congratulations from
the student body. The home debaters
were A. E. Grauer and Harry Cassidy
and those in California were Lome
Morgan and Walter Hodgson.
Speaking of the debate in Berkeley
President Barrow of the University
of California stated that the debate
was the finest ever held in the University  of California.
Remember   me,   when   tides   of   light

Are rich with things we knew.
In all  the loveliness  the years have
left us

Varsity Defeats Elks
Presenting a rejuvenated eleven
against the dangerous North Shore
Elks, the Varsity on Saturday, took a
hard fought game from the antlered
crew   2-1.
The grounds at Athletic Park were
in good condition and at times fast
soccer was enjoyed. At other stages
of the game the teams battled on even
terms, yet when the Collegians exerted themselves their opponents were
unable  to hold them.
For the greater part of the first
half play was even. .Mosher was called upon to clear several times, and
responded well. Once, while the
goalie was returning to his nets after
clearing, Crute saved a fast shot with
his head, a spectacular bit of work
that brought the fans to their feet
in applause. A few minutes later
Crute accidently tripped one of the
Ellis in the penalty area, and the re-
suiting free shot by Ross gave Mosher
no chance. Varsity now pressed hard,
and Gunning made the best of an opportunity, and beat Turner for the
equalizer. The whistle for half-time
checked further play.
The second-half was fast and there
was not much to choose between the
teams. Twenty minutes elapsed before Cameron, fast and tricky, worked his way past three of the opposition and took a running center to Lun-

On .Monday, at Heather Street, the
Frosh. were successful in defeating
the Aggies after a hard fought soccer
game, 2-1. This is the tnird ci.r.e the
teams have met to decide who was
the better team, and the result gives
'26, a chance to cop the series and
step  into the lead.
Next year, it is possible that Soccer
and Rugby will not be contested. The
series take up too much time, and unless they can be decided sooner it is

they shall not be competed.

for Varsity's winning goal. It was one
or the neatest displays even seen on
local fields and earned rounds of applause.
The "Brother Bills" still pressed
and were dangerous at all times, but
were turned hack by the stubborn
defense of Crute, Baker and Mosher.
With two minutes to go "Big .Tim"
Wilson, far-famed center-half of the
JElks drove a jtrrific shot towards
Mosher. The elongated Collegian crossed the goal mouth with two steps,
and cleared. It was a wonderful she:,
and a wonderful save. The whistle
found both teams fighting hard and
play   in   mid-field.
For the Elks, Dick Williams. Wilson
and Wright worked hard and were
sources of constant trouble to the
Collegians. For Varsity, Baker, Crute,
Phillips and Mosher played steady
games. Mosher's saves were at
times, spectacular and brilliant, while
Crute was always reliable and played
a heady game.

The Student Body has spoken. The
President of the Alma Mater for 1923-
24 has been elected. It is now our
privilege to congratulate the President-elect, and whole-heartedly we do
Mr. Grant is well acquainted with
the work of the Council. He has won
the confidence of the students as manager of the Campaign Committee, leading delegate to the Toronto Conference, a proven speaker, a past president of his class, and an international
debater. Surely with such a leader
the University can look forward confidently to the coming year.
It is most unfortunate that the University fees Should be raised by
twenty-five to fifty dollars. The additional expense is bad enough for those
who are paying their own way
through college; it means the savings
of a week of a fortnight. It is a hard-
Ship upon the men, and an even
heavier burden upon the girl who is
trying to earn the money for her college course. Moreover, this University, unlike some institutions with
equal or higher fees, has no solution
of the cost of a student's board and
lodging. As an attempt to raise
money for University expenditure, it
can be of very little use, especially
as an increase in fees is bound to
keep away certain students. If the
number of students is too great for
our present income, surely the best
way to reduce it would be by raising
the existing standards of matriculation; this would at least prevent financial status being the only basis of
Unfortunately, this is not the worst.
There is a far too prevalent tendency
to forget that a college man or woman
is making heavy personal sacrifices
by his or her compulsory withdrawal
from gainful occupation. During the
thirty months of the B. A. course, one
could earn anywhere from $2,000 to
$4 000, instead of making nothing and
spending one's savings on college fees.
"The University is a rich man's
place." Not yet, but is looks as
though those who utter such opinions
were trying to justify their own assertion.
Students of this University had an
opportunity last Thursday night of
judging a debate, and also of judging
a system of judging a debate. The
innovation of deciding the winning
team by means of a vote from the
audience in preference to the established method which provides for a
committee of judges, appears to us to
involve a certain re-adjustment in the
debaters' technique. For it is obvious
that the style of plea which will move, j
and the logic which will convince
trained judges, will not necessarily
have the same effect upon student
audiences however intelligent. i
Two great advantages the Oxford
system may claim. It interests the
audience and it provides a means of
registering its response accurately.
But surely there is a danger that under this system there will be a tendency to stress dramatics at the expense of logic, and to exploit the
known prejudices of a group of people, instead of striving consciencious- |
ly to establish a genuine "case." i
I had tried to follow the minister,
and failed. I had tried to enjoy the
choir, with the same result. I pieced up the little card in front of me
and read, but I remember only these
words, "We contribute $25.00 a year
for the support of a Native "Worker
in Uganda." It was a very stimulating fact, I thought. Just think, that
means $2.08 a month for the Native
Worker, seven cents a day. Evidently Native Workers have not yet formed, a union. The walking delegate is
still a person unknown to them. That
is the worst of our civilization; we
never begin to organize until too late.
Seven cents a day! Rather pathetic.
I pictured the poor man, coming in
each night to report progress and to
get his seven cents from the timekeeper. I imagined him dressed in
European costume, discarded and uncongenial, for there is a lot of symbolism in clothes. I heard the voice
of his superior, "Mbwungwliu, have
you honestly earned your reward today?" I could hear his timid but conscientious reply. I could hear the
scratching of his pen as he signed his
receipt. Oh, yes, they'd make him
sign one. Everybody in this denomination   is  very  businesslike.
I put a nickel in the plate, and walked home in ecstasy. That would keep
the Native Worker going for several
hours. I was helping to spread culture and belated enlightenment in
Darkest Africa. I was a Force for
Good. In fact, I began to realize the
tremendous delight that the godly
can derive from a single nickel when
they part with it for a principle.

Harry Cassidy took up the train of
events and showed that by the treaty
of Versailles France was justified.
Germany does not want to pay the
reparations, was his claim. "Force,"
he said, "is the only argument that
Germany understands."
Perhaps the best oratory was delivered by A. E. Murphy. He claimed
that France must see that this occupation cannot bring a peaceful settlement. He stated that economically
the occupation was a failure. He
pointed out that Britain suggests that
Germany be given four years to recuperate and then if she fails to pay,
the Allies will sanction France's action and give her support.

To   Senior,
Cjo   Ubyssey.
I >ear  Sir  or  Madam :—
Your letters in the Ubyssey of February 22nd and March l.st, whether
prompted by your liner sensibilities or
by the dearth of material in the correspondence column, were not in the
best of taste. The "imitations"' as you
so ably pointed out in last week's issue
were  also   "extremely   cheap,   etc.,   etc."
Your efforts, such as they are, deserve
some praise; but don't you thing that
destructive criticism, like lieas, should
be suppressed? It is so apt to become
chronic. If you must do something for
the good of your Alma Mater, I would
suggest that you start with inanimate
In conclusion, a prolonged stay, not a
visit, at a mining camp; a change of
diet or the purchase of a pair of rose
tinted spectacles might not only benefit you, Dear Sir or Madam, but also
your   Alma   Mater   and
Yours truly,
U.  B.  C,  March,   1923.
Editor   Ubyssey.
Dear   Sir:—
It v/as with much disgust that I read
a letter in last week's Ubyssey written
by one who signs himself "Amused." If
the gentleman would kindly investigate
before passing his opinion on the Senior
girl, ne would probably find that his
criticism was altogether  unjust.
As it happened, I was the lirst Senior
girl in the line-up. and after seeing the
surrounding gentlemen accepting tickets
from their friends to exchange, I considered that I was quite at liberty to
give tip my place to a Senior who came
late a:id who had the morning off.
I notice that "Amused" or rather
"Abused" failed to make any comments
on the unsportsmanlike act of some of
the gentlemen in collecting over a hundred tickets to exchange, but rather confines lis attacks to the ladies of the college.
Editor  "Ubyssey,"
Dear  Sir:—
It is with compassion that I desist
from my hilarity to pity those poor,
morbid creatures who ilay with such
asperity our supposedly perverted sense
of humor. With due reverence to God,
I venture to suggest that here, indeed,
is a deplorable case of the inad"<|uaey
of the human body. Had these purblind
beings the power of turning their fixed
gaze backward, then would they be justified in despairing of the nothingness,
the emptiness of the University-trained
mind. It is said of horses, asses, and
others, one may take them to water, but
one cannot make them drink. How much,
oh, how much! is this evidenced by the
Ancient Mariner cry of the last few
days. '.Pardon me for here indulging in
a quie: chuckle at the expense of these
mock reformers who clasp their hands
and sigh "Pass the champagne; fill the
cup of laughter with a wholesome beverage or let me die.") "Were there such
a dearth of humorous incident around
our aromatic, kalsomined. beerowded
corridors as their heart-rending cries
suggest, one might weep indeed. However, their very wailings are a refreshing p£.rt of the abundant merriment
which goes to him who seeks. Might 1
venture to suggest at the expense of
losing these droll jokers that they imitate
Mohammed—let them go to the mountain o:: wit and partake of the lresh
vintage; rather than cry for the bottled
frothings which others have gleaned.
Should they find anything wholesome in
their search (THEY will need practice),
let  them  pass  it  on.
Again, if it so he that our college
humor is in need of reformation, the
surest way to accomplish it would be
to devise new vehicles for joy rather
than hack the old. A tiny drop of clean
water is better than a lucket of rr.ud.
Let me recall an incident of this murky
charity: When a certain lamented performance was first broached an earnest appeal was made for help. Tho response was a croaking from our morbid element after tire work had failed.
Here was charity indefd. As usual,
the eleventh-hour improvising was left
to the men who have been cursed with
executive   positions.
Hoping against hope that these misguided, puny castigators will realize
that a helping hand "before" is much
better than a muddy boot "after", I remain.
Yours   respectfully,
J. W.  B.  Shore.
Except for half a dozen cauliflower
ears, three dislocated teeth, five badly flattened noses and the loss of three
and a half quarts of royal gore the
boxing tournament this year was completed without serious mishap. In
the comparatively peaceful surroundings of St. George's Church Gym. eliminations have been conducted for the
past three weeks and the finals were
staged last Thursday night, before a
large and enthusiastic crowd of Varsity fight fans. After battling their
way successfully through the preliminaries and semi-finals the following
men copped the Championships:
Under 125—Ellis, Arts '23.
Under 13i5—Demidoff,  Science  '25.
Under 145—Cameron, Science '23.
Under 155—Davidson, Science '25.
Under 165—Hislop, Arts '24.
Over  165.—Rae, Science  '23.
Latent Talent Brought Out.
Several boys of outstanding ability
as leather pushers were brought to
light in the course of the eliminations
and although losing out in the finals
certainly showed great promise.
Noticeable among these men was
Morris, who, with McLaughlin in the
semi-finals put up one of the best
bouts seen in this Year's series, wining against his hard hitting antagonist by a combination of grit, condition
and science. He lost to Rex Cameron
however, in the finals.
Owing to injuries received in his
bout the previous week Si McLane was
unable to appear in the finals, scratching to Davidson. In the semi-finals
McLane displayed a wealth of class
and although completely done up at
the end of the bout won his fight. He
was considered by many the favorite
for the finals. Pug Greggor in the
heavyweight class was also unable to
appear in the finals owing to injuries
received to his right hand in the last
McKechnie Cup game. The heavyweight championship therefore went
to Doug Rae by default. Many of the
fans were keenly disappointed as this
fight promised to be one of the best
this year.
Hislop seemed to be going stronger
than ever and won from Harry Gunning after four rounds of furious milling in the finals. Gunning was one
of the prettiest boxers seen in the Varsity ring this year. Fulton, the white
hope of the Farmers, although eliminated in the first round of the eliminations put up a great fight against
Pug Greggor and lost only after the
fight had gone 5 rounds. Archie McVittie, Ellis, Pete Demidoff, and a
whole raft of other boys deserve great
credit for supplying some excellent

I  sat in  the woods
By a pool
All the night
To gaze at a  star
Exceedingly bright
That filled the heart
Of the pool
With  light.
You came so gently
Over grass,
I did not even hear you pass,
I  felt the brush
Of  hair on  mine,
I saw the little pebble shine
The pebble you so lightly tossed
To water
Where my star was lost.
And   looking   up   with   startled   eye.

Mr Shimmir of Burdock & Logan,
gave his second address to the Engineering Discussion Club on Tuesday
noon. His subject was "Credit and its
relation to the Promotion of Industrial Enterprise."
Taking the prospectus for a railway as an illustration, he clearly
showed the fallacy of estimating future  costs  by  present  market values.
A point of vital importance was the
study of the money market, as it indicates the trend of prices of the future.
Also, with rising prices, the purchasing power of money decreases, re-acts
on the market, and results in the fall
of long term bonds, which would affect the promotion of the enterprise.
As his subject is one which is not
dealt with in tlie Science Course the
address was of great interest to all
who were fortunate enough to hear
Eyes of green,

Summary of Games  Played.
Varsity basketers were able to pull
off one win in the two games on last
week's schedule. The Senior A squad
defeated the Ex-Normal quintette 20-Ki,
while the Varsity Seconds lost to the
47th Battalion Adanacs 37-1S.
Men's Senior Game.
In the Varsity—Ex-Normal game,
Varsity came out winners mainly on
account of their superior shooting. Although the Ex's played an aggressive
game, replete with snappy combination, they had difficulty in netting the
ball. Varsity stepped into the lead
early in the nrst half, and although
close-pressed in the second, never lost
the lead. This game was the last of
the season for the Varsity Senior A
squad. The teams—Varsity: Bickle,
Bassett, Buchanan, Carlisle, Currie.
Ex-Normal: iBryson, Bruce, Fisher.
Woodcock, Meadows, Abercrombie.
Intermediate Game.
In their last game of the season,
the Adanacs defeated the Varsity Seconds :!7-lS. It was a close game all
the way, with Varsity fighting hard
for a win. After trailing their opponents by a few points for most of the
game. Varsity went to pieces in the
last few minutes, and Adanacs piled
up a big lead. Chic Hood of the Adanacs with 18 points led the scoring.
Varsity line-up: Gross, Porter, Harvie,
Boomer, Grauer.

Willamette Collegian—The Van de
Mark bill recently submitted to the
Kansas state legislature prohibiting
the use of motor cars for recreation
purposes by students attending state
schools was approved last week by
the state judiciary committee and is
now awaiting action of the legislature.
After the judiciary committee had
made alterations, the bill provided
that the use of motor cars for recreation purposes by students enrolled in
state schools be considered a misdemeanor punishable by a jail sentence of from 10 to 20 days or a fine
of from $100 to $300, or both.
The bill as it has been introduced
not only applies to the use of motor
cars on the campuses of state schools
but prohibits the students using a car
for purposes as stated above, any time
or any place while they are enrolled
in the school.
Students interested in the outcome
of the bill are already speculating on
which they will choose—the hiring of
expensive taxicabs, or taking a chance
on paying a heavy fine occasionally,
and exchanging a room at their fraternity house for a cot in the county
jail for a few days.

University of Oregon—A division
of the larger American universities
into colleges made up of groups of
students not exceeding 220, is being
advocated by President R. M. Hughes,
of Miami University here. President
Hughes, nationally known as an educator, is offering his plan as a solution of the colossal problem of the
cumbersome size of the American University.
In announcing his plan for a division of large universities into colleges
in order to attain oetter educational
results, Mr. Hughes said he was convinced that a plan of organization
must be developed in the larger institutions that will assure the same personal acquaintance of faculty and students that exists in the small colleges
if the real worth of the universities is-
to continue. President Hughes' plan
is closely modeled after the English
plan at Oxford and Cambridge.
Every Wednesday and Saturday
evenings, 9 o'clock.
